For we have many beginnings-like tributaries of a river, we come just before we enter the sea. The lives of the men of '47 and the life of Fordham, too, have been caught up in the conflict . . . the tangled web of circumstance is now unravelled. Nine years of Fordham's life are here encompassedg we number among our classmates men who first saw Rose Hill in the fall of 1938. Year by year until the fall of 1944, the men of '47 have gathered at Fordham, many only to leave and then return again. Think back to the fall of 1941, when to all but a few of us, the war was still but a hazy cloud on a distant horizon, Fordham had just closed the book on its first hundred years. In September it opened its doors to many of us, fa 1' .- kwa! 2. 31 3 T-'N s 1' " 'X f i,,."'k 'W 5 2 M W5 Wk K'y ,., ,R 5 i im I www KW v-...., I, --v. ! 4-sg -Q I mais! ---U-6-4 . l I I5'y ..,sa?' 3,1 1 Q 5 si' 5'x 'E 5 . 2 e ,N N JF.

But even then, men of '47 were on the campus, upperclassmen farther away from graduation than they thought. For many of us, life at Fordham lay in the future-the tribulations of a freshman would remain un- known until the fall of 1944. That September of 1941, as the campus paths felt again the familiar tread of undergrad- uates returning from lazy, peaceful vacations, the future was bright. Impressive ceremonies had concluded the summer-long centenary celebration, Fordham had taken the salute of the nation's leaders. Headed by Vice-Presi- dent Wallace, speakers from the political, re- ligious and educational worlds extolled one hundred years of Jesuit accomplishment at Rose Hill. We seemed on the threshold of a golden age. In the year that opened in that fateful fall, Fordham's achievements ranged from a na- tionally renowned football team to a world- acclaimed Greek play. Classical leaders hailed the production of Aeschylus' "Eumenides," in the original Greek, as "the greatest classi- cal achievement of any American college in the last twenty-five years." While preparations were yet under way for the play, maroon-clad players stormed the heights of gridiron fame in a season that culminated in a Sugar Bowl victory. On an early winter's Friday, the RAM bore the headline, "RAM VS. MISSOURI IN SU- GAR BOWL," and below carried the story of Fordham's capture of the Lambert trophy, awarded to the best football team in the East. The Sophs were sponsoring a dance that night in Keating, the Mimes were readying a cycle of one-act plays, and the basketball team was preparing for the season's opener against Saint Peter's. That was the issue of December 5th, 1941. L It was a long weekend. For in the twisted steel of the "Arizona', and in the shattered bombers on Clark Field lay smoldering the dream of peace. The shadow of treachery fell early upon Fordham. Bob King, '55, and Bill O'Neill, '57, died that morning at Pearl Harbor. No laugh- ter in the corridors when we returned on Tuesday morning, in Father Farley's ofhce quiet groups listened to the disheartening news from the Pacific-it was too unbelievable and yet all too real. Caught in the ebb and flow of events, the campus mood was one of excitement and half-fearful anticipation. College life lost its simple directness: there were new paths to fol- low. The pace of history quickened and Ford- ham fell in step. Even as the three-year war curriculum was announced, and graduation dates were moved closer, the ranks began to thin as, one by one, the men of Fordham felt the call to arms. Despite the overtones of war, the spring of '42 was much like the hundred springs that had preceded it, Horace and Aristotle had weathered other wars, and cheers still rang on court and diamond. Men of '47 saw Ed Kelle- her's basketball squad wind up a hot-and-cold season with wins over the Jaspers and Violets, and cheered on jack Coffey's ball team to the first Barrow trophy award. As usual the Ethi- cal Eagle Happed his wings and Sam Telfair dispensed the wisdom of the world. The boat- ride up the Hudson was a spring highlight, men of '47 danced to the music of Shep Fields at the Senior Ball. But the Golden Age awaited another day. September came and the undergraduates found more gold stars on the chapel flag, you noticed a few more missing faces, and at the Mass of the Holy Ghost, Father Gannon de- livered the eulogy over the coffin of isolation- ism. Recruiting parties for the reserve pro- grams found the undergraduates willing vol- unteers. The Class of '43, aiming at a January graduation, had been in school all summer, and the lower classes were likewise accelerated. The Harvester Dance went on as usual, but the inroads of war became apparent when former Maroon coach jim Crowley started six former Fordham players, members of the North Carolina Naval Pre - Flight squad, against the Ram, in the last game Fordham was to play for four years. However, the court five provided the memory of Fordham's sports' glory, sweeping in to the National Invitation finals at the Garden, there to compete against the country's best. But there were men of '47 facing sterner foes . . . in the sickening suspense of the jun- gle on Guadalcanal . . . in the parching gulleys of Northern Africa. In early 1943 neat little graphs in neat little ollices calmly recorded the loss of over 700 students, Fordham was suddenly struck to the heart. 700 remained in April, 500 in july, as the services called up their reserves. Enlisted men of the ASTP moved onto the campus to study military subjects, imparting newer, harder 9 Ms-, ,.1.- 1 . gh.. --9-'Q .tx ', Lili ' - 1 ':' . ,V- - 5. l.

Through September . . . October . . . No- vember . . . December . . . campus life went slowly on-a mere echo of better days. By jan- uary, 1944, 330 students were enrolled in the college. The Class of '47 was in attendance elsewhere. But in September of 1944, a new group of lively freshmen caught the baton for '47, em- barking on what was to be an uninterrupted stay at Fordham. October witnessed the grad- uation of 28 men of '45, members of that freshman class of "unprecedented size" which had entered three years before. It was a mark of the times that the gym, once the sacrosanct domain of Pat Kenneally, became a monster barracks for an Army Postal Battalion. A hint of the future was given in january of '45 when Fordham began the pleasant task of "rehabilitating the veteran," as a few for- mer members of the armed forces resumed their education on the campus. The hope for things to come was stimulated by the revival of the basketball and baseball teams in the '44-'45 season. Fordham teams have had bet- ter seasons, but not often better spirit. Expectancy was the mood of the spring of 1945-a tense hopefulness was in the air. In the Ardennes, Von Rundstedt had loosed his last desperate bolt-and missed, Patton was fording the Rhine. The riddled fortress of Europe crumbled and the god-state vanished. As the men of '47 in Europe laid down their arms, their classmates in the Pacific tightened the steel ring of ships about the islands of japan. Then, in one explosive moment in the still air above Hiroshima, the future of our c L .5554 generation was struck by the lightning Hash of pure power. At first the return to peace seemed almost as unbelievable as the leap into war. But it was easy to forget a global war and think of home. "Readjustment" became the stock-in-trade of the female Freuds on the Ladies Home Jour- nal, most of us thought it was wonderful. Meantime, at Fordham, the class of '47 wel- comed an ever-increasing number of returning servicemen. By January of 1946, those neat lit- tle graphs swung upward, there were 675 in the college now. Every few weeks new classes seemed to be entering-revived enthusiasm awakened dormant activities. The familiar grid uniforms were re-issued as Ed Danowski made the welcome announcement of spring l practice. Over in Collins, dusty sets were cleared away in anticipation of a cycle of one- act plays and "Saint in a Hurry." By April, the baseball season was well under wayg and Father Cox's debaters were facing an ambitious schedule. The Glee Club, moderated by Father Farley, as always staged a concert at Town Hall, featuring members of past classes, re- turned to the Fordham scene for one night. Meeting with almost universal approval, the accelerated program was continued in order to make as many men as possible eligible for graduation in the summer of '47. The Class of '47 spent the warm months on Rose Hill, nodding and starting through junior philos- ophy. When the summer session ended, there were 975 men in all the classesg September arrived, and enrollment more than doubled as 2100 students swarmed through the halls. The Class of '47 was finally assembled. And by now it was evident that the much-touted conflict be- tween veteran and non-veteran simply did not exist. It seemed to have gotten lost in a sea of good fellowship. Fordham had come back, surpassing even the most hopeful predictions. The cafeteria could scarcely accommodate the eleven o'clock coffee club, and temporary barracks were springing up to house the overflow of resi- dents. Spellman Hall took shape behind Keat- ingg and for the first time, the college held classes for Freshmen in the evenings. New courses were offered, the faculty welcomed new members, the new Department of Com- munication Arts was opened, training under- graduates for careers in theater and radio. And it really seemed as if the long-awaited Golden Age was dawning. Through the Fall of '46, a new vigor char- acterized all the phases of student activity. Home games with St. Mary's and N.Y.U. highlighted a pre-war intersectional grid sched- ule. Although in many respects an unsuccess- ful season, it represented Fordham's first ven- ture on the post-war gridiron. They turned them away at the doors of the gym the night of the Harvester Hop, and the same success rewarded the efforts of the Sophs at their Christmas Dance. "Wings Over Europe" was an auspicious opening for the most ambitious season the Mimes had ever attempted, and the "Ramblings of '46" pointed the way for future musical comedies. The RAM and the Monthly resumed regular publication, the language clubs were organized. Pre-war stars gave the basketball team the lift it had lacked in last year's revival. Popular Bob Geigengack, after revivifying the track team, had left for Yale to be replaced by the . v , M , 7 .. 4-nv .-.4 E4 52 'Q Q' i K A ni in 4 A J!! 5 vw JJ -i Jw- fm, ,,,-'Af Lf '12 'f"'- ','- : an A-W AA x . lf' Q' ' ,ff ' '47 ' T I - "IL 'f'l"f"'.--.

His charges demon- strated that Fordham's track fame would not be diminished, as, racing around the Garden saucer, they won again the trophies we had been accustomed to call our own. A sure indi- cation of the rebirth of sport on Rose Hill was the reorganization of the fencing and swim- ming teams. February saw the spectacular production of "Peer Gym" under the direction of Mr. Mc- Cleary, climaxing the Mimes' most difficult and successful season. But the University The- atre program also called for the presentation of three more plays-"The Summoning of Everyman," staged by Mr. Kloteng "Crown Colony" in April and an original comedy with music, "Bikini, Bikini," for May. Finally the last of our Fordham springs was upon us. The fleeting days were spent in watch- ing spring football practice and in the stands on the baseball diamondg we danced at the junior Prom and crammed for our final exams. And so the account is closed. If the 'debits and credits do not balance, if the entries do not tally, remember that these were crowded years and the facts and faces were not so easily as- sembled. Our college days are over and it is not so easy to describe the mark that Fordham has left upon us. We have learned more than we were taught. Well we may forget Cicero and the syllogism, the dates and data will pass from mind. The high ideal remains. The class- room became the crucible for living. The in- tangibles were forged into ingots of realityg faith and fellowship were more real than before. But before we look ahead we find our thoughts drawn inevitably back to those class- mates who left us and did not return. On the chapel shrine their names are inscribed. It is our responsibility to hold high the torch their sacrifice thrust upon us. It would be treason were we to lose sight of their high aim. Ahead looms the future's bright challenge. Some tell us that all the horizons are reached- but the sun still shines on worlds to conquer. Through the restless and turbulent clouds pierces the light of better days. ON TO THE FRAY. DEDlCATl0N JUNE, we Fordham men of '47 begin our reckoning with the Atomic Tomorrow. We are proud that a son of Fordham had distinguished himself in enlightening Amer- ica and the world about the potentialities of this enigmatic gift to mankind. Amid world clamor and confusion he has stood for the Christian concept of Atomic Energy. In respectfully dedicating the 1947 MAROON to BRIEN MCMAHON, and in hopefully praying for his success in his struggle for a sane future, we of '47 realize that we are paying homage not only to a worthy alumnus but also to the great Jesuit tradition that produced him.

The natural harmony of his soul finds expression in the Glee Club and the newly formed Beethoven Society of which he is Treasurer. A Physics Major, Bill has worked as engineer for WOR, and plans to be an engineer when he finishes school.

" WITH the record enrollment at the collegeifor this scholastic year, it was not an easy task which faced the Student Council when the fall semester opened. Charged with regulating the variegated activities of over two thousand students, the Council was chiefly engaged in re- viving the different student organizations which had suffered a wartime lapse, and encouraging 16 - PHTHJIEB Loft those which had survived to expand their inter- ests to their pre-war peak. If the number and popularity of the many clubs is any criterion the Student Council has earned the plaudits of the school. Due to the re- flection of the opinions of the undergraduates in the Council, the dances which enlivened the eve- nings of pre-war Fordhamites have again taken a prominent place in the Rose Hill social calendar. Under the moderator-ship of the Rev. Law- rence A. Walsh, SJ., Dean of the College the members of the student legislative body for 1946- 47 were headed by John Duffy, as President, Michael Molloy, Vice President, William Gold- stein, Secretary, and Don Drennan, Treasurer. Its other members were Seniors Taylor Hanavan, Walter Morris, Donald Drennan, Marino Nata- loni, Charles Smith, Lothar Candels, junior Class President Warren Gallagher, and john Gallagher and William Lovett, heads of Sophomore and Freshman years, respectively. The Council is largely responsible for the re- appearance on the campus of the collegiate mis- sion society, the Harvester Club, Under the spon- sorship of that group, this year's Harvester Hop was the biggest success in the annals of the club. Likewise, following the success of the Sophomore Christmas dance, the Council itself, led by Charlie Smith as Chairman of the Entertainment Com- mittee, sponsored an affair on january 17th, which they hope will become an annual fixture at Fordham. Certainly it got off to a good start this year. The prime function of the Council is to regu- late most of the intra-campus student activity. Accordingly, Walter Morris handled all intra- mural sports and Michael Molloy the several elec- tions for various campus posts. Furthermore each activity, if contemplating any social affair must gain approval for its date from the Coun- cil. In line with this procedure, the body's first yearly job is to plan a calendar for the year- which will allow each club the fairest opportu- nity to express itself. This year's task then was particularly difiicult for the old standbys, the Mimes, the Debating Society et al. had enlarged greatly their schedules and several dormant acti- vities were anxious to run dances and have par- ties, where, in previous years they confined them- selves strictly to the campus. Scarcely a weekend went by without a debate or a play or a banquet. And this made it hard on the men in the Coun- cil to allot these dates fairly. The supervision of class elections and the im- portant election of a Chairman for Senior Week fell to the Committee on Elections headed by Michael Molloy. An important revision was made in the constitution this year when it was decided to grant the Chairmanship of Senior Week auto- matically to the President of Senior Year after this year's election. In December two Council representatives,War- ren Gallagher and Jack Duffy entrained for Chi- cago as part of the University representation in the formation of a proposed National Students Organization composed of delegates from almost every college in the country. Looking back on the competence of this year's Council, we can appreciate how fortunate the college was to have such capable men in its legis- lative body. Also it was indeed welcome to see a full representation for the first time in four years. The Student Council of this academic year followed well in the tradition of those noted ones of the past. 0 Q nb:-93-5, .. - 1 , --r..., , al-5-I- Xx I lg.. f "?"'.-.r-S -,T , pi , , 5 Z" isis? -QF: -is S '- '-Ti'E':f- ff -S D110 . 5 vf .

" SENIOR SODALITY UNDER the new guidance of Father Philip Hurley, SJ., formerly Professor of Reli- gion at Georgetown, the Senior Sodality, com- posed of all juniors and Seniors, the Sodality be- gan its operations for the year with jack Duffy as Prefect and Bob Geiringer and Dick Schilling as his assistants. The work began with the sodalists split into three groups which devoted their ener- gies to Catholic Action, Literature and Missions. An interesting feature of the weekly meetings was continued this year in the persons of several off-campus speakers who gave the sodalists fasci- nating sidelights on important branches of Cath- olic activity. These talks were highlighted by Father Gerald Walsh, SJ., editor of "Thought" and Father Harold C. Gardiner, SJ., literary edi- tor of "America" Concentrating not only on religious instruction to grammar school children, but also on dissemi- nating information on Catholic subjects to older groups, the sodality added a streamer to its ban- ner of Catholic Action by organizing a Speakers Group which spoke on such subjects as Labor, Euthanasia, Divorce and Birth Control - giving the Catholic viewpoint to Newman Club and parish organizations anxious for an intelligent and interesting propagation of the truth. SOPHOMORE SODALITY Aware of the urgent fact that the laity consti- tute today the "Church's grip on the temporal order," the Sophomore Sodality set itself this year to the task of cultivating a deeper appreci- ation of the role of the layman in the establish- ment of the Kingdom of Christ. Practical work of teaching catechism, aiding the sick in the hos- pitals and collecting money and materiel for the Missions was supplemented by their Wednesday Discussion Meetings and attendance at the Sodal- ity's occasional lectures by invited speakers. Sophomore Sodalists were prominent through- out the year in the effort to build up attendance at the Friday morning Missa Recitata and in reci- s l 2- - tation of the daily Rosary. Immense credit is due the members of this Sodality for their consistent work in fostering devotion to our Lady on the campus and for their generous participation in the high demands of the Sodality's apostolate. FRESHMAN SODALITY In the division of the Sodality this year into three distinct groups, Father Theodore T. Farley, SJ. took over the reins of the large Freshman section. As inall the other groups the prime aim of the Freshmen was the encouragement and fos- tering of Catholic Action in the members. The ofhcers elected were Thomas Joyce, Pre- fectg Vincent O'Brien, Assistant Prefectg james Nussey, Secretary and Vincent Fox, Treasurer. These men led the sodality in a lengthy sympo- sium on the Catholic Theatre Movement, stimu- lated by the emergence on the campus of the School of Communication Arts. Several interesting speakers were heard by the group discussing various phases of Catholic life. Rev. Harry Irwin, S.-I., recently returned from a war-long internment in the Philippine Islands, spoke on the conditions of the harassed Filipino and the tremendous re-building program over there, Rev. james P. Courneen, '40, of the Mary- knoll Fathers, spoke to the Freshmen on the Chinese Mission field. Further speakers touched on the "Big Brother" movement, Euthanasia and Birth Control. All things considered it was a big and eventful year for the Freshmen in the Sodality. BOARDER SODALITY "To impart in a thousand ways . . . the Catho- lic attitude toward life as a whole." Thus is the function of the Catholic college described to us and thus do we have one of the reasons for the existence of the Parthenian Sodality and its sister organizations around the campus. Indeed, implicitly or explicity, it is with this purpose in mind that each part of the Sodality works. Each Monday evening meeting offers to the boarder, for whom it was created, and by whom it is directed, at least one way, one sugges- tion which would foster this end. The sources of these suggestions were the committees on Lit- urgy, Communism, Scripture, Literature, Social Activities and Student Relations which were ap- pointed by Lothar Candels, the Prefect, early in the year. From the prayers, hymns, reports of interest of the various committees, discussions and the spir- itual talks rendered by Father McMahaon, the moderator, which comprise each of the Sodality's meetings, the goal of Catholic attitude and Cath- olic Action is greatly fostered. 'Departing lefme beloiud ug fool- printr on the .fflislflf of tif-new - Lorzgfellouf C14 year-book is just what its name im- plies-dit takes practically a full year to publish it. So the men of '47, as early as May, 1946 elected as the Editor-in-Chief, Leo Tarpey, the capable managing editor of the RAM. In prepar- ing to turn out a pre-war style MAROON suit- "The Big IVigs" able to the inauguration of Fordham's Golden Age, Tarpey selected a skeleton crew immedi- ately to proceed with the selection of a printer and photographer. Featured in his selections was the popular choice of jack Duffy as Business Manager. Duffy, who was soon to take a major role in almost every activity on the campus, be- gan to coordinate the business of the book in order to handle the complicated financial prob- lems attached to an endeavor of this size. With the advent of fall classes and the intro- duction of the 350 Seniors to Ethics and Psycho- logy, the Dean announced the appointment of the Rev. joseph E. O'Neill, SJ. as Faculty Ad- visor. Under his efficient direction, Ray O'Connor took over as Photography Editor and began rout- ing the Seniors down-town to have their pictures taken. However in December, the pressure of other activities forced Tarpey to resign, and Chuck Mattingly was quickly appointed in his place. As the pressure mounted and the work began to pile up, the new editor appointed several Sen- iors to head various functions of the book and a large coordinating staff to unite their efforts effi- ciently, Tom Brennan was named Managing Edi- jacle and Chuck talk things over. 'Stop smirking, Tom." The Sports Authorities. torg Tom Smith, the happy acl-man was put in charge of publicity and advertisingg Ken Kiefer became Circulation Managerg Bob Degen headed a large editorial board in work on the Senior write-upsg Ed Gilleran began editing the sports copy and Martin Devine and Bob Henaberry were alerted to coordinate the Activity section. The staff confronted its first problem, when the question as to whom the MAROON would be dedicated was raised. It was decided to depart from the usual procedure and to pick an out- standing alumnus who had distinguished himself in some field outside the campus. Quickly the name of Brien McMahon '24 came to mind, and he was selected. Another difficulty was apparent in the fact, with so many returning veterans in the ranks of '47, some who had been Fordham- men before and others who had been students elsewhere, that such a conglomeration of Seniors deserved some sort of mention in the book. This was solved by a 2100 word history of the class and of Rose Hill during the war which was used with an attractive picture spread to open the 1947 MAROON. The most pressing problem re- mained in the fact that with so many Seniors in the class, it would not be easy to present a personal and intimate write-up on each one. The work on this difficulty was given to Bob Degen and several others who were assigned the job of interviewing, classifying and writing on each and every man among the graduates. So vast and complicated an operation it was that, when the deadline was upon us, there still was left re- maining more work on the Seniors. The finished task, as herein written, we hope, satisfies every- one. By january, the editors were swamped with work and their desks were loaded with copy of all kinds. Activity pictures were being taken, Senior pictures and write-ups were coming in and sports pictures assembled. To complicate matters, examinations were intruding upon the crowded work schedule and the intensity of one's last col- legiate year was beginning to harass the staff. But, speed was essential and the job had to be done. With the last winter snows, a high voltage publicity campaign got under way to secure sub- scriptions from the upper-classmen and patronage from their parents and the alumni. In view of the high cost of printing and the necessarily above-average cost of the book itself to each Senior, the business staff decided wisely against soliciting donations from the graduates' parents, already burdened with the expense of having a college senior at their dinner-tables. There remained one final echo, for the Sen- iors, of the war that the editors felt should be in the MAROON. It was thought that something should be said of the many friends of pre-war days who had not been so lucky as their compan- ions who had returned to the campus, that some memorial should be made of those Fordham men whom we had known and who had died in the service of their country. The University was planning a war memorial including the names of all Fordham men who gave their lives in the war, and the 1946 MAROON Staff graciously dedi- cated their book to them. What then could the class of '47 do to remind all who read their year- book that the memory of their departed friends was still uppermost in their minds? It was de- cided to list simply the dead from the college classes of '41 through '46 since the class of '47 includes in its members students who, but for Pearl Harbor, would have graduated in those years. As the grim deadline approached and time be- came of the essence, Tom Brennan and the edi- torial board finished the gigantic task of coordi- nating the thousands of words of copy into some- thing resembling an ordered whole. Ray O'Con- nor lost weight and sleep making sense out of the countless pictures submitted and to be used on the various pages. Reflecting upon his efforts, one sees that he performed all the functions of a photography staff himself. It took a lot of leg- work, industry and intelligence to do his job and no amount of credit is too great for the fine re- sult he produced. Father O'Neill, in the meantime, was lending his valuable time to helping out the boys in their many emergencies. His patient and careful guid- ance is, we feel sure, reflected in the pages of the MAROON. With all the copy turned over to the helpful printers and the pictures in the hands of the en- engravers, there was no time for the staff to sit back and relax. For, now, proof sheets were being dropped into the mail and the editors were stay- ing up nights penciling and correcting all the work of six months in almost six weeks. So as the campus was turning green, several Seniors' eyes turned red assimilating the almost completed re- sults of their labors. This thankless, unglamorous job remained for a large crew and they acquitted themselves nobly, to say the least. The circulation date was set for late in May, so that every one could have their copy before graduation. Ken Kiefer was given the final job of collecting the money and handing out to each Senior his prized fwe hopej yearbook that would serve as a memento of his hard-spent life at Ford- ham. f Looking back upon the work that produced this MARCON, it is difficult to single out any individual or individuals to praise above others, if praise is due to anyone. First of all, it is im- portant to note that as a year-book, it was a class achievement. Each Senior who appears on the pages of the Senior section deserves the gratitude of the staff for his generous cooperation. The same can be said of the faculty, who patiently The Workers? 173 endured the whims of the editors and loaned their assistance when it was most needed and most appreciated. In considering the faculty, we could not exclude, above all, Father O'Neill who perspired and groaned and celebrated with the staff and who was as much, if not more than, a part of it. There are numerous stall' members whose work merits praise. The brittle pen of Tom Brennan is present upon many of the pages, the quiet eth- ciency of Eddie Gilleran can be seen in our sports section, the methodical excellence of Bob Degen has found its way into many of the Senior write- ups-and, of course, Ray O'Connor's diligence is discovered in the effective photography used in the MAROON. Following them, there were many Seniors whose contributions, varied and wide, have helped to make this book, not a one-man or one- group effort, but a class accomplishment. There was Tom Smiths etfervescent leg-work for ad- vertisingg Crof Hayes' arduous job handling pa- trons, in which he was assisted by Norm Buzaid and half the boarders in Roberts, and finally the scattered writing of Bren O'Connell, Tom Mc- Gohey, Ed Breslin, Willie Dunn, Jud McCarthy, Ken Gallagher, Frank Auerbach, Neil Sullivan, Adrian McGuire, and many, many others. It is to their credit that this book's success is due. Perhaps speaking of success is premature. But to those who shall criticize, and to those who will praise, the staff leaves this pungent reminder. They faced a most difficult assignment. First of all, printing costs had gone sky-high and neces- sarily, the cost of the book, covered mainly by the Seniors, was proportionately high. They had to sell the MAROON to a group of men who could ill afford to put a great deal out for it, and it is to their credit, that so many Seniors fulfilled their hopes in this respect. Secondly, they envi- sioned a year-book that would do honor to Ford- ham and to the class and, which was, conse- quently, a complicated and involved process. They wanted a MAROON that had distinction and dignity and with a budget to be provided solely by what they could raise, such hope as- sumed monumental proportions. With the pres- sure of school work and the fact that most of the staff were intimately associated with many other activities on the campus, their time was not al- ways free to be spent on work for the yearbook. And, in this case, time was more important this year than in previous ones, for it took much longer to print the MAROON than in other years. Thus the deadline had to be moved closer, just about the time when every Senior was con- centrating on passing his Second Trimester Phil- osophy examinations. But we hope we have surmounted these obsta- cles. We now can sit back and relax to await the judgment of time and the discerning reader. With wearied anticipation, we hope for the best.

I F that sounds like a prospectus for a new magazine, it isn't. For, when the staff of the 1946-'47 version of the Fordham Ram was assembled for the first itme, that was the goal established for the then eager staff. Some twenty issues and hundred-odd staff changes later, the chroniclers of day-to-day Rose Hill happenings paused to take stock of their accomplishments, and found that they had returned the College weekly to its pre-war standard . . . and even set a few new marks for others to aim at. Some of the staifmen of Volume 26 that began in September 1946 traced their first days on the paper back to another September afternoon in 1941 when they were just "cub" reporters. The oldtimers brought up the famous speech that Father Gannon had made at a Fifty-seventh Street Restaurant one winter's night in '43. The Univer- sity president told the somber-faced gathering of Fordham's Fourth Estate that night that, even if they all went off to the wars, The Ram would "keep the presses rolling." Father Gannon's promise that there would be no empty space on the shelf where there ought to be a volume of the school paper was carried out all through the war years. Even though the en- rollment at the school dropped to a little over two-hundred, The Ram continued to turn out the Fordham news. Falteringly, perhaps, and at odd intervals. But the tradition that had started with another war went uninterrupted. From a mast- head full of names the list dwindled to five stal- warts, but they somehow managed to scare up enough news to have a copy of the "weekly" in the hands of the students in time for the first class of a Friday morning when they could gather enough news to publish an issue. As the rolls of the school and the activities came out of their wartime hibernation, the staff awakened from its newsless days to find that the paper was really a weekly again and not the "weakly" that some of the wags had been calling it before. It wasn't the easy task they had imag- ined, even with a large turnout for the many vacant posts. In previous years, the Ram had its own little system. Freshmen were submitted to grueling tryout sessions. On acceptance, they had to salaam before the desk where sat the high ex- alted News Board, a quartet of omniscent jun- iors who had completed their apprenticeship. For the first few months, the newcomer wrote most of the stories in the paper, wore out grosses of pencils composing headlines, and carried the completed copy down to the eager hands of the printers, a trek of some thousand miles to mid- town Manhattan. The -crowning achievement of these days of trial was the day when a member of the News Board asked the tryout fwho had heretofore been referred to as "Hey", how he spelled his name so that it might be placed on the masthead. At this stage of the newcomer's career a new figure entered on the scene-the managing editor. Be- The Indispemables. fore, all that was required to banish the neophyte to the exterior darkness was a nod from one of the lesser "names" on the staff. Now that he had reached the heights and had won his place alongside the regular staffers, he had to keep a weather-eye out for the He had seen it happen before. One day each month the second-in-command had stormed into the ofiice screaming for the man who wrote "that article on the Gaelic Society." When he had managed to scare up the culprit, he would rear back on his heels and, in a commanding tone for all to hear, would proclaim "You're suspended." While the guilty one slinked off to a quiet cor- ner, the managing editor stomped out of the office and was not seen for another month. The new man saw the editor-in-chief once in his first year as a member of the staff and then only at the fabulous banquet at the end of the year which he was permitted to attend as a non-eating guest. In second year, Joe RAMan had his name printed above one of his own stories. Of course, some member of the News Board had rewritten the story, but after all, joe got the credit. The following year, joe made the News Board him- self. He saw the editor once a week when he came in and asked "Everything okay?". It al- ways was, so he left until Wednesday-and the deadline. In the editor's absence, Joe and his News Board partners assigned the stories, acted as chairmen for the bull sessions and served as lookouts so everyone seemed busy when the moderator ar- rived. The moderator assumed a more lofty air than the editor when he entered what he called the "Sanctum." His question was somewhat sim- ilar to the one the editor always asked. His wel- coming words were, "Is everything okayf' Aside from the fact that the News Board required sup- per money for Wednesday night, the moderator usually was told that the situation remained static. With Wednesday night all the legendary fig- ures whose names graced the second page of the .. f-X-S Ram suddenly came out of hiding. Drawn by a magnetic force, they converged on a printshop a little past Second Avenue on New York's Forty- fifth Street. There at Western Newspaper Union's plant, everything was usually not okay. To begin with Dick Madigan, the foreman, was a bit peeved over the fact that most of the stories had not reached him until seven o'clock Wednesday night and he frowned sourly as he spoke of all the overtime that would be required in order to lock up the pages that night. Gus, the king-sized compositor, looked up from a maze of type that would have to be The Ram in a couple of hectic hours and grunted a "Hello" to the haggard wretches who trooped into the back room. They tell stories now of how Dick Madigan once sat down at a typewriter and dashed off an editorial while the elevator opera- tor in the building took down a report of the The Hucksters. Manhattan-Fordham baseball game over the phone. Although these are usually considered apocryphal, university officials will try to avoid mention of the numerous campus societies which had their first and only meetings in the pages of the Ram when the occasion called for a story and the copy on hand called for a blank space. If Joe RAMman went on to be become manag- ing editor in his last year, he had well-learned the technique of making an awesome appear- ance at the office and he had mastered the boom- ing phrase "You're suspended" that instilled ter- ror into freshmen on the staff. If, better still, he became editor, he received the key to the Ram's personal ivory tower where he retired to peck out his editorials of a Wednesday afternoon. The idealistic pre-war version of the Fordham historians faded int the same smoke that rose above Pearl Harbor on December 7. The dynasty collapsed and with acceleration, the making of a Ram man was speeded up. Sophomores became editors . . . men who came to clean the office found themselves members of the staff . . . and most of the paper's meager space was given over to the exploits of Fordhamites in the service. The only relics of the old Ram were the stories the printers used to tell of the fabulous characters that once peopled the masthead. With the first issue of the brand new post-war Ram, a senior was named editor, and that in it- self had come to be an oddity. Taylor Hanavan, who had bypassed the old "farm system," took over the swivel-chair of the editorial writer. A two-year product of the old school, Leo Tarpey, who had also worked in a year on the austerity version of the paper on his return, was installed as managing editor and immediately proceeded to suspend the first man in sight. The ban was lifted shortly after when it was discovered that he had ostracized the circulation manager by mistake. A newcomer to the jour- nalistic wars, jack Duffy, began the monstrous task of straightening out the financial accounts, now that people wanted to advertise again. After The Leg-Men Gather. - he had cleared the way, Jack McKenna took over the management of the Rams business and, for a time, a race was being held to see which would fill the pages first, McKenna's ads or the stories written by members of the staff. Some of the readers were inclined to take more kindly to reading the advertising copy anyway. In a hackroom of the office, Ed Gilleran, an old hand at turning out such adjectives as "spec- tacular" and "sensational," was handed the baton as director of the sports pages where he was told he would reign supreme without any interference from the news or business staffs-unless, of course, McKenna needed some space for an ad or two. john Sweeney, who had been trained in the "moral victory" school of sports reporting during his early days at Rose Hill was No. 1 aide to sports editor Gilleran, who also dispensed the "heres how we did it" routine in the "Look- ing Them Over" column. Witlu such large numbers of eager reporters, the managing editor soon developed a sore throat suspending all the staff men so a fresh batch of whip-crackers were brought in. Dan Murphy be- came the Ram's ace deadline-setter as News Edi- tor when he wasn't turning author of an opus on the latest intricacy concocted by the Chemistry Department. There still weren't so many typewriter-pound ers on hand that no one had more than one job. When he wasn't suspending people, Tarpey filled a column called "Ramblings" every week. Ace Feature Editor Tom Brennan, who was perhaps the best light-writer on the staff, had Broadway- ites and Mimesmen alike quaking in their boots when he donned his white tie and tails as the "Review" editor. Dick Broderick, who was perhaps the first freshman editor of "Ramblings" which he wrote ' fade Cojeyk Nemeses. for three years turned his hand to the "Off Cam- pusl' column. Dick Schilling spent the football season explaining away a victoryless schedule in "Sportscope" and, then, turned "assistant coach" and student-seer when the basketball and base- ball teams amassed worthwhile records. Team members of the various Rose Hill ath- letic units took turns telling the inside story of that last game or the reason for the reason be- hind the decision to pass instead of kick on that fourth down. Ed Hal Boudreau, basketball strategist Bob Mulvihill, and lieet-footed Joe No- wicki took turns at the paper's "Sidelines," after that column was relinquished early in the year by assistant Sports Editor Sweeney. And, with the close of Volume Twenty-six, the Ram had started its dynasty anew. The start- ing line-up on the News Board of capable re- turnees Vic Stephens and Bob Gibbs was fat- tened up with newcomers Ralph Arsenault, Tom McGohey, and Bob Ayling. Freshmen, sophs, jun- iors and seven seniors were nailed to run copy, but the old caste system was being installed again and the printers would be telling Ram men in ten years of the eccentrics that composed the '46- '47 staff. For despite all the fumbles, the missed stories, the hurt feelings the men of the post-war Ram had satisfied most of their readers, and more important, satisfied themselves that the re- porter of the Fordham scene could stand on its own feet again and could tell the news crisply and succinctly as well, or better, than it had ever done before. The Times, News and World-Telegram have no worries that the Ram will never take over any of their circulation, but even the "Big Three" will have to admit that Fordham's silent scribes hit the heights of collegiate journalism in 1947. For the Ram, as with practically all other major activities on the campus, the year 1946- 47, represented by Volume 26, was a new begin- ning. The college had had no paper before the first World War and consequently never knew what it was missing during that holocaust QAhemj. So the Ram's first appearance took place during the blissful days glorified by F. Scott Fitzgerald and the Florida land boom. From a promising beginning, Fordham's news- The Staff Goes Formal. paper soon became identified with clear, forceful and interesting coverage of the Rose Hill scene. Several men who glorified its pages with their hard, gem-like prose graduated to prominence upon the mastheads of many New York papers and magazines. Tim Cohane, Arthur Daley, Ray Kelley and Frank Conniff can be numbered among the illustrious names which figure greatly in our modern news world. It is to be hoped that this year's staff, many of whom have ambitions to follow in their footsteps, will accomplish equally memorable things in their future. Sired by such predecessors and determined to match their integrity and ability the men of Volume 26 naturally had a large task on their hands. They fully realized, as only too few of their confreres could, that a Catholic college newspaper occupies a peculiar and distinctive place in the newspaper field. It must not only pursue the ideals of the modern news world, but it must also carry uppermost the banner of Cath- lic morality and good taste. In view of this, Ram editorials have been distinguished by their thoughtful promulgation of ideas, expressing the Catholic student's viewpoint on the affairs of the world. With Russia getting frisky and the Atomic Bomb hovering over our generationg with euthanasia and birth-control popping up again and again on the pages of magazines and newspapers, Ram editorials consistently demon- strated the strength and truth of the Church's position on the vexing situations that play such important parts in modern life. Father Barrett and his boys. 'look in tby bear! and 1lf'1'1.l'8D UNCH more hitting its stride after the long wartime slumber, the Fordham MONTHLY resumed regular operations under the editorship of Don Drennan with a Fordham new-comer, Father Alfred Barrett, SJ. in the moderators chair. Their leadership was particularly fortui- tous inasmuch as Don had been one of the lead- ers in last year's revival and Father Barrett was well known as equally adept with the paint-brush and the poet's pen. - Sir PIQUQJ Szklney Reviving a plan to modernize the format which had originally been attempted back in 1942, they were largely responsible for the production of a lively melange of fiction, opinion and humor- all contained in a bright attractive lay-out. Don and Father Barret aimed at blending the presen- tation of the so-called "slick" commercial maga- zines with the traditional literary content of the collegiate journal. Perhaps the outstanding con- tribution to the manifest success of their efforts was the introduction of several drawings by the talented artists on the campus. Furthermore this talent was httingly demonstrated on the various covers, distinguished by their taste and lively dig- nity. Of course, Father Barrett was mainly re- sponsible for this impetus in the art field. On the MONTHLY's Editorial Board were Dave Morison, jack Reddy and Joe Clancy all of whom had helped to build again literary inter- ests in the college out of the debris of the war. In charge of "Fordhamensia" and "Antidote," informative columns of interest to the students and faculty, were Bob Degen and Wils Dizard, both of whom had been associated with the MONTHLY before called away to service. A large art staff composed of Bob Geiringer, Char- lie Smith, jim DeSapio, Lothar Candels, Ken McNally, Lou del Guercio and Al Choy worked on the drawings and etchings seen in the pages of the magazine. The business staff was managed by Bob Henaberry and consisted of Bill Ward and jack Burke. Important contributions to the books literary worth were made by several other writers, notably Marty Devine and jim Trainor. In its various issues, the MONTHLY turned out several compelling articles and features. Highlighted among these were the unusually ex- pert poems of Don Drennan and joe Clancy, notable for Hopkins and Eliot overtones acquired in Doctor Connolly's modern literature course. Jack Reddy was responsible for the incisive com- ments upon Catholic authors which aroused so much interest. Perhaps the MONTHLY's out- standing feature was the subtle humor achieved in the "ancient wood-cut" of an "Ethical Eagle" and the accompanying article explaining its ori- gin. To the ignorant this was a gentle take-off fand, by indirection, an excellent tributej to the noted professor of Ethics, Rev. Ignatius F. Cox, SJ. It was widely acclaimed and served to key- note the "light touch" the MONTHLY had so easily reached. The popularity of Fordham's literary magazine serves as sufficient reward for the moderator and the editors. Their capable efforts found ample gratification in the fact that MONTHLY copies seemed to disappear in students' pockets almost as soon as they were circulated. A sincere unity of effort and considerable talent were responsible for this happy effect. They have made the MONTHLY a magazine whose style and format are to be envied. It is sincerely hoped that suc- ceeding staffs will follow the path they have trod. For all who read and enjoyed the MONTHLY in 1946 and 1947 will attest that on that path they cannot go astray. An important and not-to-be-ignored adjunct of the MONTHLY staff were the Scriveners. Under the guidance of Father Barrett these fledgling writers were made up mostly of Freshman in their apprenticeship for filling the places of the upperclassmen on the staff. A "farm" for the magazine, the enterprising talents manifest in this tight little organization produced much that found its way into the MONTHLY, and other material that gave promise of making a place for its author in succeeding years. This organization was featured by the work of jim Finsterle, Vin Potter and Nick Arcomanno. They and their confreres faithfully performed all the necessary menial work for the MONTHLY, which, in this day and age, is supposed to be too undignified for an upperclassman to perform. Their patent talent certainly indicated that there would be no depreciation of MONTHLY liter- ary tradition next year. X The Monthly Hot-Shots. 'Zet my nuzn .speak long enough be n-'ill get Iaelieverrn HAVING been revived early in 1946 under the expert guidance of Father Cox, SJ., the Council of Debate resumed its activities in September, determined to carry on in its success- ful pre-war tradition. With Gerry Flynn as Presi- dent, the debating society formally reverted to the title of its historic predecessor on Rose Hill, the St. johns Debating Society. This effected and a new, up-to-date constitution approved, the members eagerly initiated an intra-society discus- sion of the merits of the intercollegiate topic for 1947: "Resolved: that Labor should be given a direct share in the management of Industry." In order to prepare fully for an extensive intercol- legiate schedule in the spring, it was deemed ad- visable to withhold Fordham's forensic fire against outside rivals until its champions were Robert L Stevemon 1 fully orientated on the complications and subtle- ties of this question. With the winter's first snows, the society un- derwent some changes. Gerry Flynn's unfortu- nate illness forced him to turn the gavel of President over to the able Walter Morris. Father McMahon took over Father Cox's function of moderator, and the debators moved their head- quarters to the third floor lecture hall in Keating after the requirements of Fordham's new radio station forced them to vacate their old haunts. A new slate of ofhcers, with Paul Owens as Vice- President, Aurelio Montinola as Manager of De- bate and Frank Walsh as Secretary took over to point the members toward their heavy schedule culminating in the Prize Debate in the spring. George Patterson's active group aptly publi- I'Y'Ylll'7'6l1 and jim belabor a point.

St. Peters Mount St. Marys of Maryland, Can- isius and St. Vincent's were engaged in the early rounds. These contests were marked by the ora- tory of Xldfalter Morris, Aurelio Montinola, Andy Kenlon, Chuck Mattingly and XXf,2ll'1'6I'l Gallagher. Later, the society, under Father McMahon faced Holy Cross, Georgetown, St. Josephs and other colleges throughout the East. W'hile many of the contests took place on the campus, the debate manager provided additional interest in the pro- gram by arranging some excursions to Philadel- phia and Boston. Marked by frequent victories, the season as a whole proved once more that Fordham's debators are to be reckoned with on the speakers' platform. Serving as a junior-grade debating society, the Freshman Forum provides new-comers to the campus scene with an opportunity to further their interest in the argumentative art. Herein the neo- phyte is trained in the technique of preparation and delivery of a clinching argument, pointing toward his active participation in intra-society and intercollegiate debates during his years as an upperclassman, Present indications are that there will be no dearth of capable speakers to take over the reins of the debating society in the im- mediate future, insuring the continued success of this, our oldest extra-curricular activity.

Already, while interest was turned on the preceding shows, Bob Geiringer, who had nobly assisted Mr. Kloten in directing "Wings" was preparing his lines for one of the longest and most difficult roles ever essayed on the stage. The story of Ibsens' Eternal Egoist, attempted in this century by Richard Mansfield and Joseph Schildkraut, demanded a massive pro- duction, and above all, hard work. "Peer Gynt" Mr. McCleerey and the "MimesJ' Staff. stood as the most ambitious attempt of a most ambitious program. In january the call went out for actors and it was well answered. Rehearsals started immediately with the opening night, February 11th, upper- most in the minds of the thespians and Mr. Mc- Cleery, who was to stage the show. Geiringer, who had begun his work early in the year was ready for the grueling physical and mental ef- fort necessary to carry the show in the title role. For, as the great Norwegian dramatist conceived the part, the entire play resolved about the man whose love of Self careened him through pas- sion, terror and his own near destruction. Mr. Riva, hard-working as always with his diligent crew led by jack McNamara, jim Loren, jack Clyne and jim Pringle, began the construction of an impressionistic setting designed to keep an audience gasping in wonder. Finally on February 11th, the curtain was raised. The opening night audience witnessed a spec- tacle-a memorable achievement not only in the Fordham theatre, but in American drama, as the downtown critics characterized it. A cast of 75 recruited from the rolls of the University filled the stage, led by Patricia Breslin as Solveig, Mary Finnerty as Aase, Ray Rahner as the Troll King, Mary Lay as his daughter, Ed Cosgrove as the Devil, Joachim Martin as Doctor 89 and Bob Henaberry as the Button Moulder. But ever pres- ent upon the stage was Peer Gynt himself, cre- ated again to the critics' most expert taste in the person of Bob Geiringer. His was a performance seldom, if ever, equalled in Collins Auditorium "Peer" ran for one week, from the 11th to the 17th of February. Despite competition from bas- ketball games and dances, Collins was filled every night. Aside from the effective clarity and force of Mr. McCleery's direction and the beauty and craftsmanship of the Riva set, it would be difficult to single out, other than Geiringer him- self, anyone from such a competent and spirited and hard-working cast. From a business angle, jim Murray again labored with success, jack Hale, Willie Goldstein, John Timoney, Tom Smith and many others produced the publicity in a manner that would do credit to Richard Maneyg and Willie Lyons and George Connolly hand- led the house expertly. Looking back on such an achievement now, one can appreciate well the unity of effort and talent that was responsible for this milestone in 75 years of dramatics on the campus. W7 ith "Peer Gynt" successfully completed and the climax reached and passed in the Diamond jubilee, the eager Mimes were not content to rest on their laurels. There were still three produc- tions left and still enough energy, they hoped, to equal their several demands. The day lbsen's play closed, rehearsals commenced on the "Summon- ing of Everyman" Mr. Kloten returned to the di- rector's chair to turn out a modernistic version of this classic of mediaeval morality plays. It be- came a considerable undertaking, not only be- cause it followed an outstanding job, but because the depth and profundity of the allegory needed expert staging to make it popular. Though Mr. Riva took a well earned vacation, there was no lack of expert scenic designing. Max Sisk took over and created a simple setting, whose dramatic effect would be heightened by careful lighting, a la the Mercury Theatre's "Julius Caesar." Fur- thermore, he designed the very dramatic cos- tumes for the show to heighten the impression achieved by the set and the lighting. The cast included Chuck Mattingly as Every- man, Bill Lyons as Fellow, Gerry Condon as Dis- cretion, Bob 1-Ienaberry as the Messenger, Frank Cunyon as Goods, Mary Lay as Knowledge and Margaret Herlinger as Good Deeds. The marked success of this show, produced in the middle of Lent before St. Patricks day was due not only to the intelligent performances of the cast, but no- tably by the pointed direction of Mr. Koten, who combined music and the Sisk designing talent to create an extraordinary result which played be- fore admiring audiences for three nights on the campus. Vfith "Everyman," an innovation was intro- duced in Mimes' policy. Because of the marked religious aspect of the play and its increasing popularity as a Lenten vehicle for Catholic con- sumption, "Everyman" was taken "on the road." The enterprising directors in Collins saw an op- portunity for favorable publicity and reception in the various parishes in the Bronx who were anx- ious for just such a dramatization of man's eter- nal dependence upon God and his life-long strug- gle to attain his supernatural end. And so, bag and baggage, the Mimes moved through the Ramblings. Bronx with "Everyman" Such an innovation gave rise to more ambitious "road" ventures in the future. And now there were four down and two to go. Remaining on the Mimes' heavy schedule were "Crown Colony" and 'lBikini, Bikini." The first got underway as soon as the debris of "Everyman" was cleared from the stage in accordance with Mimes' policy to give no one time for a quick breath, because such might lead less energetic students to nervous breakdowns. Mr. Rim and the Stage Crew. X The most interesting feature of "Crown Col- ony" was its historical significance. Translated from the German, it was the story of the War of the Seven Reductions, a struggle of Indian colonials in South America in 1760 for the au- tonomy promised them by the Spanish Crown. At Fordham it had an especial significance since those colonies at that time were filled with heroic Jesuit missionaries soon to be the victims of Bour- bon tyranny in the tragic suppression of the or- der in 1773. It became another, in what is hoped, a long line of dramas with a Jesuit background produced at Fordham, which had already seen, in 1940 "Who Ride on White Horses" an ori- ginal play about Edmund Campion written by Dick Breen and Harry Schnibbe of the class of 1940, and "Martyr without Tearsl' the story of the Mexican Jesuit martyr, Father Miguel Pro, written by John Dugan '41. Finally in May, the Mimes wound up their year's activity with "Bikini, Bikinil' a musical comedy with modern day significance as the title suggests. For the first time Fordham talent was combined to turn out an entire musical show on the large stage in Collins auditorium. The only other successful musical ventures on the campus, both directed by Mr. McCleery, were a small revue attempted in the Little Theatre in Keating Hall before the war, and the recent "Ramblings" mentioned previously. Now however, the business and publicity staffs, actors, singers and dancers were to join their talents in an all Fordham mus- ical to rival the better known ventures of Har- vard, Princeton, et al. That such an attempt was successful is due to the same reason all the Mimes' efforts were crowned with success-whole hearted cooperation on the part of everyone. It is difficult to summarize a year's activity when so many important events took place and when the effort was made by so many people. It is not easy to single out any individual when there were so great a number whose value to the Mimes cannot be reckoned in mere credits on the back of a program or playbill. From top to bot- tom, no production was a lone effort-each suc- cess manifested the work of the moderator, the director, the stage crew, the actors, the business staff and all the other students who contributed so much time and energy to the year's work. In making the Mimes the most active and diligent activity on the campus those men already men- tioned here were assisted by others-many others. But all of them, from Willie Goldstein up in his ofiice over the stage to Jack McNamara stuck in his glue behind the set are proud that the Mimes of the 1946-47 season set a standard well to be aimed at by succeeding groups. They are happily aware that the Diamond Jubilee season of the Mimes and Mummers marked the zenith of Fordham dramatics. Those following must go a long, hard way to better their achievement. v Jack directs "Ramblings" publicity.

By now the choral group is a tradition at Fordham, one of those traditions which never seem to gather merely the dust of antiquity, but rather attains Father Farley, Mr. jocelyn and tbe Board of Directors. only mellowness iwith the years. Founded in 1924, the Glee Club approaches the quarter cen- tury mark with an enviable record of accomplish- ment. Its members have sung Fordham's name far and wide, as they journeyed to schools and concert halls in New York and neighboring states. Taking its normal place as pace-setter for en- ergy and achievement, the Glee Club in '47 emerged from the wartime shadow to renew the musical and social successes they had previously known. Father Theodore T. Farley continues as moderator, marking his nineteenth year as the guiding spirit of the organization. Under the di- rection of Mr. Frederick A. Joslyn, the '47 group set out upon an ambitious schedule including concerts at such institutions as Notre Dame, in Staten Island, Manhattanville, Marymount, and Trinity College in XXf'ashington. The Wfashington concert was one of the season's highlights, since it was a beneht performance to raise funds for the war-ravaged Normal School at Bastogne, France, as well as an excursion for the "Rambas- sadors of Song." The annual concert at Hotel Plaza was the peak of the Glee Club's achievements for 1947. Among the members of the class who have par- ticipated in the downtown appearance, as well as those elsewhere, were the Club's Chairman, Charlie Smith, and such stalwarts of song as jim Duggan, Fred Krais, and Bill De Lannoy. Certain to remain in the memory of its members, the Glee Club has formed a harmonious part of the Fordham scene as we knew it. OH to W'aslJington. ,CE CERCLE FRANCAIS has long since proved its worth in fostering in the student of French a further interest in the language and culture of France. In this fissionable day and age of "One World," its prime function of augment- ing class-room training in the spoken language takes on added importance, and the members of our French club have redoubled their efforts at increasing their proficiency in speaking this in- ternational language. The return to the campus scene of many veterans who had come to know at first hand France and the French people brought new vitality to "le cercle" during the past year. With Dr. Basile G. D'Ouakil, Head of the Modern Language Department, as Mod- erator, the members chose Bob Degen as Presi- dent, with Vince Starace serving as Vi:e-Presi- dent and Secretary. Vifell-remembered are those intimate soirees in a downtown restaurant, as well as several most enjoyable the-dansants in the company of very charming members of the French clubs of local girls' colleges. Aimed at developing facility of expression in the written idiom is the Fordham-France, monthly publication of the students of the French De- partment.

Mr. Gohla, moderator in his absence, and Mr. Kaelin decided that two separate groups would have to be made in order to accommodate the large turn-out. The Senior section, with Mr. Gohla in charge, elected Lothar Candels, President, Sam Falvo, Vice Presidentg Gene Shattuck, Secretary, and Frank Carillo, Treasurer. Mr. Kaelin organized the Freshman section with Lou Brune, Al Lyons, Connie Boyle and Larry Ross as its ofhcers. With this organization accomplished, things social assumed a role of major importance. An informal dance was held in the day-hop lounge on December 6 with the traditional Germanic Christmas overtones. In january, the officers of each section began delivering short talks in Ger- man on several subjects to the sections. The climax was achieved on February 11 when the annual banquet was held in Yorkville and much wienercshnitzel was consumed by all the merry members. There remained the outing in May on the calendar with which the club ceased activity for the year, but a crowded and interesting year it was for a society that was one of the few to stay alive during the war.

Sweeney, Lutz, Kane and Car- mody lead the men every Thursday at three o'clock in playing matches from which the rest of the group gains valuable instruction in the complicated procedure of chess. In the spring a club tournament was held to determine the best chess player in the club-and it was enthusias- tically filled with the smart and not-so-smart ex- ponents of the game. Principally the functions of the group have been to assimilate the know-how of chess so that each member would be qualified to teach another how to play. The emergence of the Chess Club as a distinctive element on the campus gives rise to the hope that more students will spend some of their time picking up the game and its conse- quent enjoyment.

'Hr ye Jong ro shall ye reap" - IW11-P Testament fOR the first time in four years, the collegiate mission organization functioned as its old self on the campus. The sole, commendable aim of the Harvester Club is to raise money for the missionary work by the Jesuits in the Philip- pines. This it has done admirably in the past by sponsoring a dance and monthly mite-box col- lections. Revived this year with more members than ever before, it aimed at surpassing past rec- ords and making the students extra-mission con- scious due to the tremendous rebuilding program ahead for the Philippine Missions. Under the guidance of Father Pangborn, him- self a veteran of many years in the islands and The Potential. is r three years behind japanese barbed wire, the group this year commenced work or. its first task of promoting a large, informal dance to be held in November. Marino Nataloni was named to head the committee in charge and he was as- sisted by Tom McGohey, Bren O'Connell, Vin Florentine and the ever present Tom Smith, who made the first big impression with some really clever advertising. To say that the result of their efforts was a big success is putting the matter mildly. The dance drew over six hundred couples, the largest crowd ever packed into the gymna- sium for a social event. And, as usual, all money, over and above expenses, was sent to the East to foster the work of propagating the faith. Spring saw again the emergence of the mite- box collection as a monthly ritual on Rose Hill. So successful was this effort that it almost equalled the great profit of the dance. And so the Harvester Club this year returned to its fine tradition of keeping Fordhamikeenly aware of the never ending job to be done in the far away corners of the world of winning more souls to the banner of God. "We feng ne happy few We hand of hrotherzfi - Henry V LONG a mainstay on the campus, the Officers Club stands as one of Fordham's proud- est extra-curricular organizations. Composed of the Advanced Course ROTC trainees, its finest boast is that its many members sent into the ranks of the armed forces in the last war ac- quitted themselves with distinction. However its functions are not limited to post academic experi- ence-its basic aim is to orient its members who are soon to receive reserve commissions in the customs and traditions of the military service. Among its more prominent members are joe Iacovo, captain of the rifle team and Guadal- canal veterang Tom Smith, Taylor Hanavan, Harry Iles, Sam Wingheld and Dan Desey. Witlm Major Vffilliam D. XVard, Assistant Professor of military science and tactics as advisor to these men and their comrades form a compact and well-balanced group of future reservists. A memorable event in the past revived this year by the Oliicers Club was the Military Ball, sponsored by the group and held with all mili- tary pomp and color. Witli the war and the de- parture of so many men into the service, this custom along with so many others at Fordham had to fall by the wayside. However, on May 16th of this year, john Brophy led a committee which re-inaugurated the affair. Assisted by Tay- lor Hanavan and Robert Wariier, the dance took its place again as a definite fixture in the Ram social calendar. 4 CSVOZHIFI the tri-ulqneg' beat the lil'll1ll.fv - Haizzfel fOUR years ago the Band marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade, then the uni- forms and instruments were put away and the Band sadly ceased to function "for the duration." On the 17th of March, 1947 the revived band again marched up Fifth Avenue in all its pre-war glory. Thus one of the most virile of Fordham's student activities has started back on the long road to the eminence it had attained before the war. The most enjoyable engagements of the Band were the trips with the football team, first to Boston and later to Pittsburgh and North Caro- lina, It is hoped that these trips will be revived, for the former members of the Band never ex- haust the happy memories acquired while on these excursions in the hinterlands. The Band's greatest triumph was the John Philip Sousa Memorial Concert presented at Car- negie Hall, May fl, 1939. In other years the con- cert had been held in the University Gymnasium to be followed by a dance. These were among the most successful social events on the campus. Captain Ernest A. Hopf has been the musical director of the Band since September, 1926. He has served faithfully and well, and all are glad to have back again in his old post. The modera- tor of the Band, since 1929 has been a truly mem- orable Fordham figure, the Rev. Harold Mul- queen, SJ. His kindnesses have not been re- stricted to the members of the Band as multi- tudes of alumni can attest. Co-Managers of the Band are Paul Colette and Michael Dahowski, both juniors. John VU er- Fr.

COFFEY HIS is jack CoHey's twenty-hfth year at Fordham. For most of those twenty-five years he has been the Graduate Manager of Athletics, and for all of them he has been the coach of Varsity Baseball. None of Fordham's great athletes during that span--johnny Murphy, Pop Sweetman, Ed Danow- ski, Bo Adams, Babe Young, Dom Principe, Ed Franco, Hank Borowy, Len Eshmont, joe Andrejco, joe Nowiclci and the rest-have left Rose Hill without having Mr. ColTey's great Catholic spirit and herce pride in Fordham instilled in them. For all Fordham students who have known him he has been an inspi- ration and a living example of those spiritual qualities the Jesuit fathers have tired in them. Fordham justly prides herself on her century-old history of achievement, and to that part of the history in which jack Coffey has taken a dominant role, the 1947 MAROON pays its respectful tribute. 197 A I .JF 33' i IRG MAJ OOTBALL T HERE were no cries of "Rose Hill to Rose Bowl" when the new head coach, Ed- ward F. Danowski, '34, issued the first call for football candidates early in September. Ed and his able first assistant, Leo Paquin, '57, realized they would have little material to work with in fashioning the Maroon gridiron machine and entertained few visions of pigskin greatness for 1946. In fact, it was with some surprise that the two mentors found, among the fifty-nine candidates at the initial practice sessions, fifteen pre-war veterans, including lettermen joe Andrejco, jim 198 Lansing, Joe Ososki, Harry Squatrito, Don Bren- nan, George Reiss, and Hal Boudreau, John Wfitkowski, Wfalt Mercer, Ray Elster, Phil Brady, John Bohdiewicz, Ed Nlyozniewicz and Bob Fitz- gerald, all squadmen on pre-war Fordham elevens. During the six week period prior to the open- ing game, Danowski and Paquin and assistants Lou De Filippo, '41, Jim Noble, 117, and Frank Filchock of the N. Y. Giants undertook the task of educating the small band of veterans and new- comers in the intricacies of the vaunted T forma- tion. However, a week before the opener the staff, unable to uncover a quarterback capable of proficiently handling the "T" assignments, dis- carded the original plans and substituted the familiar Notre Dame system which Jim Crowley utilized at Rose Hill for so many years with such favorable results. On paper, at least, Rose Hill had the makings of a formidable starting line-upg a solid, experi- enced forward wall and an equally experienced and capable quartet of backs. The lone weak spot in the pre-season figuring was at center, but a freshman, Bill Landmark, was reputed to possess the ability to proficiently hold down the pivot post for the varsity. If the returning veterans could regain their old form, and if the newcomers could be brought along quickly, Forclham's chances for success appeared good. "The Brains Behind the Brawnf' GEORGETOWN Excitement ran high as the Maroon journeyed south to Washington, D. C. for the season in- augural with the Hoyas of Georgetown on the "joe, jim and Rameses XIV." evening of October ll, and the eyes of the foot- ball world turned toward the nations capital to watch a once great pigskin power return to the football wars once again. Fifteen thousand spectators filled the bril- liantly lighted Gritiith Stadium for this seven- teenth renewal of the series between the two great Jesuit institutions which saw the home team overcome a seven point halftime deficit and go on to an 8 to 7 victory. Co-captain joe Andrejco kicked off for Ford- ham and the 1946 season was on. Georgetown, starting operations from its own 21, failed to make a first down, and on fourth down jack McTamney dropped back into punt formation. George Reiss, crashing in from his left guard position, partially blocked McTamney's kick and Bob Fitzgerald gathered the deflected pigskin into his arms on the Blue and Gray 21. On first down the Ram line opened a gaping hole on the Hoya right side and Andrejco bolted through the opening for nineteen yards and a first down on the 2. The Rams shifted to the right and joe Ososki slipped past the defending left guard and was credited with Fordhanfs first post war touchdown. Steve Skapinec booted the extra-point from placement and the Maroon led after only two minutes of play, 7 to 0. Shortly after the second half kick-off a fifteen yard penalty set the Maroon back to its own eight yard line. Attempting to punt out from within his own end zone, Ososki had his kick blocked by Vic Banonis, Hilltop center. Diminu- tive Sammy fell on the loose ball, however, and two very important points were registered on the scoreboard for the home team. The revitalized Hoyas continued to dominate the play and were driving to a score a few min- utes after the ensuing kick-off. Three times Coach jack Hagertys forces drove to within striking distance, as the passes of Babe Bara- nowski began to hit with amazing regularity, but three times the spirited Rams refused to yield. Georgetown was not to be denied, how- "Co-Caplains jim Lansing and joe Andrejrof' ever, and in the closing stages of the third stanza Baranowski hit Len Bonforte with a short pass and the big Hoya halfback twisted his way down to the Fordham 2. joe Murphy then bulled over for what proved to be the winning tally on the next play but George Benigni's attempted con- version was low. Fordham fought back valiantly, but, except for a brief moment in the fourth period, was never able to seriously threaten the Hoya lead once again. ST. lVlllRY'S Returning to the Polo Grounds the following assembled spectators, scoring once in both the first and third periods and twice in the second and fourth quarters. KINGS P0lNT One week later, on October 26, an overcon- iident Ram eleven took the field against the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, Long Island. Five thousand spec- tators filed into the stands at Tomb Memorial Stadium to watch the Maroon strive for its first victory of the year against the oft-beaten Mari- ners, and for thirty minutes it seemed as though "lVbat Makes Sammy Runf' Saturday afternoon, an underdog Ram eleven was soundly trounced by the powerful Gaels of St. Marys, 33 to 2. The power-packed Mora- gans, led by their sensational All-American half- back, Herman Wfedemeyer. staged an outstand- ing aerial circus for the thirty-five thousand "Sal Stops Herman From Squi1'min'." "Don Bremlrnz--guard." a Fordham victory was in the making. Trailing, 6 to 0, at the intermission, the underrated Mari- ners were a brand new team in the second half as they completely dominated the play and pushed across a touchdown and an extra point to win, 7 to 6. Returning the opening kick-off to the 17, the Fordham running game functioned smoothly and in ten plays moved seventy-three yards to the Kings Point 10. On first down joe Andre-jco went wide around the Mariner right Hank. and, with Lou Mauro clearing the way, scored standing up. Steve Skapineos try for the extra point was wide, but it did 'riot seem to matter much at that poin: in the game. As the third quarter began, however, the Mar- iners suddenly caught fire, and, with Lou Viau and Stu Vifebster sharing the ball carrying chores, moved the ball down to the Fordham 2 and a first down. Three times the Long Islanders tried the Rose Hill line and three times they failed to make the required yardage. But, on the fourth down jack Mcflrane handed the ball to Viau and the little halfback found an opening on the right side and burst into the end zone for the score. Paul XVilliams place-kicked the extra point which eventually proved to be the winning margin. Fordham fought back in the fourth quarter, and, with thirty seconds of play remaining missed victory by an inch. Steve Skapinec at- tempted a field goal from the vicinity of the 30, and at a slight angle. The kick was long and low. The ball struck the cross bar right smack in the center and bounced back into the end zone with a heart-breaking thud. W"itl1 it went Ford- ham's last hope for a victory. PENN STATE And there was little sympathy shown the men in maroon a week later when they journeyed to State College, Pennsylvania. for the first meet- ing in Fordham history with Penn State College. A capacity crowd of 14,000 filled the sun f' , ' , 31 Gear ge Reiss-gum d. drenched stands at Beaver Field for the encoun- ter which saw the Nittany Lions score early and often in a 68 to 0 romp over the spirited but woefully undermanned squad from Rose Hill. This was touted as one of the finest teams ever turned out at State by Coach Bob Higgins, and the veteran mentor turned loose against the Rams a quartet of high-stepping backs and a rock-ribbed group of linemen who had few equals in the long Harry Squatrito, was forced to retire to the side- lines upon the recurrence of an old ankle injury. WEST VIRGINIA Cn the road once again the following week- end, the Danowskimen stopped over at Morgan- town, West Virginia to do battle with a Vifest Nittany Lion grid history. The home forces counted three times in the first and hnal quarters and twice in both the second and third stanzas as jeff Durkota, Elwood Pet- chell and Wallace Triplett paced the quick-open- ing State running game and faultless aerial attack. It was when the Penn State reserves were on the held in the third period that the Maroon showed to best advantage, turning back the vic- tors twice within their own ten yard line. Joe Andrejco was the Rams' only threat but, like teammates Hal Boudreau, joe Ososki and "Hal Sat This One Out." 1 Virginia University team which had given mighty West Point a whale of a game the previous Saturday afternoon. Thirteen thousand fans crowded into Moun- taineer Field to watch the home team defeat Fordham for the first time since 1928 and they were quite satisfied when the Mountaineers emerged a 39 to 0 victor. Playing without the services of Captain joe Bob Fitzgerald at Right Tackle . . .' ". . . and Iolm Bohdiewicz at Left." Andrejco, and joe Ososki, the Maroon rallied in the final quarter and was close to a touch- down when time ran out and cut the drive short. Wasting little time in getting the scoring under way, the winners tallied twice in the opening quarterg on a twenty yard jaunt by Bud Freese, following a sixty-two yard match, and when the same Freese passed twenty-nine yards to jimmy Devonshire in the end zone. In the second period Fordham took to the air as the powerful Mountaineer line, led by tackle Ed Kulakowski and center Leo Benjamin, stopped cold every Maroon attempt on the ground. An errant Ram pass found its way into the arms of a Blue and Gold defender, johnny Pozega, in the third period, and two plays later Freese bolted through the Ram line and dashed to a score. A few minutes later, Guido Deveechis, subbing for Freese, bulled across on a short plunge for the fourth touchdowng and in the final quarter an- other Maroon aerial backfired as Vic Bonhli in- tercepted on the Fordham 40 and sped to a touch- down through the entire Ram team. N. Y. U. By far the outstanding game of the season and one of the most thrilling exhibitions ever put on by a Fordham football team was that which was staged the following Saturday after- noon before 28,000 spectators at the Yankee Stadium. In this, the twenty-fourth annual Battle of The Bronx, almost everything that can happen in a football game took place, as the Violets achieved a sensational last minute victory, 33 to 28. The vast assemblage had barely had time to get seated when Fordham exploded with the first of the nine touchdowns that were destined to come during the remainder of the chill after- noon. Lou Mauro took the opening kick-off on his own 20 and returned the ball to the Ram 50. Operating from the T formation, Dick Mc- Caffrey handed the ball to Andrejco, who fol- lowed two man interference wide around his own left end. Breaking into the NYU secondary, "joey" cut back to his right, brushed off a couple of would-be tacklers and sped seventy yards for the initial tally. Steve Skapinec place kicked the extra point and the Fordham stands went wild. The first Violet score came when joe Bona- corsa skirted the Fordham left end from a fake punt formation and went all the way-eighty yards. Tom Capozzoli's extra point try was wide and the Rams led, 7 to 6. Six plays later the University Heights eleven led, 13-7, as Dave Millman drove through the middle on a quick opening play, shook off several defenders, and raced sixty-four yards to score. This time Capozzoli added the point. But this was only the beginning, for two more touchdowns came before the half ended. joe Andrejco, assuming a new role, began passing, and it was his aerials which accounted for the next two tallies. joe pitched thirty-four yards to Ososki, who ran twelve more to the Violet 26. With third and live to go, joe floated an- other to john Witkowski, who made a diving catch on the 2. Two running plays failed to gain and a fumble lost ten yards. An emergency measure was needed and so Andrejco passed to the fleet Ososki, who made the catch in the end zone, although apparently covered by three defenders. Skapinec added the point. Following the next kick-off, Millman fumbled and George Reiss pounced on the loose ball on the NYU 16. The Violets were then penalized five yards for offside and the Maroon needed only eleven yards for a score. On third down, with eight yards still to go, Andrejco called for "Lou Mauro versus N .Y.U." "0soski Making Tracks." another pass and wafted this one into the arms of Ray Elster, who ran over from the 2. Skapinec again added the point and Fordham had a sub- stantial eight point advantage. "Big Bill Lafldmark-renter." "Slim Bloomer-quarter back." The scoring subsided somewhat in the third quarter, the lone tally coming on a Capozzoli to lrv Mandschein pass play which covered sixty- 206 eight yards. The extra-point attempt went wide, and NYU had cut the deficit to two points as the final period got under way. Fordham scored again early in the quarter, when Ray Elster followed up with a twenty- eight yard cut-back over the NYU left tackle. Skapinec added his fourth point after touch- down. Coach jack VUeinheimer's eleven was still very much in the fray and, less than a minute later the score read, 28 to 26, as Dave Millman cruised sixty-one yards around the Maroon right side for his second touchdown of the afternoon, and Tom Capozzoli added the point. There were less than five minutes left to play now, and Fordham fans began to sense victory as the Ma- roon started to move the ball uplield once again. A fumble and a Violet recovery on the NYU 45 set the stands flanking the west sideline wild with hope. But the alert Ram forward wall rose up now and Capozzoli was forced to kick, the ball carrying into the end zone. Desperately try- ing to keep possession, the Maroon ran three times for six yards. Ososki had to punt and his kick carried only thirty-four yards to Bonacorsa, who returned nine yards to his own 48. Millman bucked for six and then he and Vincent Finn got together for the play of the day. Finn faded and tossed a short pass to Millman. Hemmed in by Maroon tacklers, Millman broke into the clear, picked up a swarm of blockers and headed downlield. Don Cameron came close to catching the speedy Violet halfback, but Irv Mondschein cut Cameron down with a rib-tingling block and a pall of gloom settled down upon the Fordham stands. That was the ball game! It might not have been a great game from the viewpoint of expert play, but it will always be remembered as one of the most thrilling games in Fordham history. L. S. U. The representatives of Rose Hill travelled 1,500 miles to Baton Rouge, La. for the season finale, under the lights, with Louisiana State University on November 22. Facing the mighty Bengals, who went on to the Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day, the Rams put on one of their best exhibitions of the campaign, although go- ing down to a stinging 40 to 0 defeat. The high- scoring Tigers were able to tally only twice in the first half and, the manner in which the Ma- roon forward wall handled the heavier Purple and Gold lineman had Coach Bernie Moore and 15,000 LSU fans quite anxious as to the final outcome of this intersectional contest. In the final half, however, greater experience and superior numbers once again took their toll and Louisiana amassed a comfortable lead with a four touchdown onslaught. It was in the second quarter that Fordham made its most stirring bid, starting operations from its own 23 after an exchange of punts. Sam Ososki sprinted twenty-six yards and then another punt exchange gave the Maroon possession on the Fordham 54. Ososki quick-kicked over the head of the LSU safety man, jim Cason, and when the latter was tackled on the Tiger 38, he fumbled and George Reiss recovered. Sam hit tackle for eight, and then two passes fell incomplete. Al Heroman then re- turned Ososki's short punt to the Louisiana 9. Quarterback Y. A. Tittle tried a pass but Don Cameron intercepted on the 55 and raced back to the home team's 13. Sam Bloomer and Ososki tried passes as time ran out but to no avail. "H6.'X'i11g Grarel Gerlie at lbe Rallyf' "Bo and the Basleeieersf' BA KETBALL WITH the post-mortems on the N. Y. U. game still fresh in their minds, an overflow, expectant crowd of three thousand packed the University gymnasium on the evening of December eleventh to welcome the 1946-47 edition of the Ram basketball team. Though the reports of the team were generally favorable, it was a skeptical audience which looked over Coach Frank Adams' charges for the first time. 20 Five veterans of previous court campaigns were scheduled to start for the lvlaroon against Iona College but the memories of football frustration dictated against any overoptimism and a "you'll have to show me" attitude was in evidence from friend and foe alike. From the moment Co-Captain Herb Clann broke the ice and put the home forces out in front, the Ram quintet proceeded to show one Fordham 64 Iona 51 and all that this team, though rusty and inclined to be a trifle careless, was to be seriously reck- oned with for the remainder of the season. With Co-Captain Tony Karpowich, star of the 1942-43 tournament squad, leading the way with nineteen points the Maroon rolled to a decisive victory over the Little Irish from New Rochelle to the tune of 64-51. Starting along with Clann and Karpowich were Bob Mulvihill, defensive ace and playmaker par excellence, Dan Graham, a power under the boards and Gerry Smith, who was later to be the freshman sensation of the city. Mulvihill and Graham were also on the tournament quintet and Smith was a star on the 1944 five. In addition to these returnees, two newcomers showed to good advantage - Ed Abele tallied fourteen points in his first college game and Allie Shiels displayed a propensity under the basket which was to become accentu- ated later in the year. Fordham 53 Wagner 38 On December fourteenth, the Rose Hillers jour- neyed to Staten Island to tangle with Wagner College and triumphed easily 53-38 as Smith, Graham and Clann led the attack. The Rams assumed the lead in the opening sec- onds on the close-in shooting of Clann and Kar- powich, and soon had an 8-1 lead. As the Wag- ner offense continued to limp along weakly Ford- ham, functioning smoothly, moved ahead, 26 to 13, and at the half led, 33 to 19. Fordham continued to add to this lead and was ahead 47 to 31 midway through the last half. At this point Wagner fashioned a short spurt of five straight points and cut the Ram lead down to -X is eleven points but the Rams had their own way during the closing minutes and went on to amass a total of 53 points. Fordham 61 Newark 39 Four days later Newark College visited Ford- ham and succumbed 61-39 to the high tuned but erratic Rose Hill machine. Karp broke out with fourteen as the first team played only a short while in the second half and Mulvihill made it clear that he had few equals in the science of basketball both defensively and in the role of playmaker. Looking at the schedule, it was evident that the first three contests were in reality tuneups for the initial big encounter against Boston College on the twenty-first. The Rams handled them ac- cordingly and went to Boston with a clean slate. "Coach Adams and Co-captains Herb and Tony." Fordham 50 Boston College 72 The Rose Hillers left for Boston with high spirits but they were fully aware that victory over B. C. depended almost entirely on how good a job they could do on the Beantownefs seven foot, one inch center Elmore Merganthaler. Play- ing their first game in what seemed at that mo- ment to be big-time competition, the Rams ap- peared a bit awed by the Boston Garden and more than a bit awed by the king-sized Elmore. The big boy ripped the Maroon defense by using his height to its best advantage and when the "The Big Five" smoke had cleared the score board showed a 72-50 triumph for the home team and the score book registered thirty-seven of those seventy-two points for Merganthaler. The visitors had one ray of hope in the second half when the Boston pivot man par excellence fthat nightj committed his fourth personal foul early in the stanza but it was shattered as the minutes ticked off and all attempts to lure him into the miscue failed. Tony Karpowich and Gerry Smith spearheaded the Fordham attack with fifteen and eighteen points respectively. This encounter was a bit of a preliminary for a later tussle with a giant center by the name of Harry Boykolif and served rlv to prove that the Ram quintet would never be able to match anything much over six foot five inches as the tallest Maroon operator was only six-two. Fordham 58 Brooklyn College 52 Disappointing in its first real test, the Rose Hill quintet welcomed in the New Year and then proceeded to surprise and impress the most severe critic with a winning streak that was to carry it right through the month of january with- out once again tasting the bitter fruit of defeat. With Tony Karpowich and Herb Clann setting the offensive pace, the Maroon fashioned a neat 58-52 triumph over the Brooklyn College aggre- gation at the Kingsmen's home court on janu- ary eighth. Fordham 53 R. P. I. 35 The Rams then played the part of the un- gracious host in handing Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute a thorough 53-35 shellacking two days later. Once again Karp took the scoring honors, this time with twenty-one points. Fordham 41 Villanova 39 The first real thriller of a campaign which was destined to produce many of the same oc- curred in Philadelphia on Wednesday evening january fifteenth as the Ram five took the meas- ure of a competent Villanova squad 41-39. With a six point half time lead, the Maroon hoopsters staved off a desperate Wildcat rally in the second period and just did manage to pull the game out of the fire. The scoring was well distributed but Karp and Smitty were high with ten apiece in the low scoring contest. Fordham 59 Hofstra 45 The accent was on defense the following Sat- urday as a capacity crowd packed Calkins Gym- nasium in Hempstead, Long Island to see Hof- stra's leading scorer Johnny Mills match strategy with the Rams' defensive genius Bob Mulvihill in a game won by the visitors 59-45. Mills proved himself worthy of his reputation as he split the cords with seventeen points but, with nine via the foul shot route he was well checked by the Ram court general's excellent play. Karp, Smitty, Gebhardt and Graham took care of the attack which was slow throughout the early part of the game but gradually got started in the second half when the Rams pulled away from the hard fighting Dutchmen. Fordham 55 St. Peters 33 St. Peter's and Kings Point were next on the list for the high riding Maroon but these games were only considered tuneups for the second milestone of the campaign with the Rams sched- uled to face the powerful Georgetown quintet on the thirtieth. With George Babich, former Rose Hill court ace at the helm, St. Peter's played the part of a tuneup but the home forces were slow to grasp the opportunity as they threw away chance after chance to score and left the floor at halftime with a scant 15-13 advantage. It was "Tony Karpowich-guard." a different team which took the Hoor at the outset of the second half and the issue was never in doubt thereafter. Smith topped the scorers with thirteen points as the Rose Hillers romped to a 55-33 victory. Fordham 48 Kings Point 40 Though their mediocre record promised little in the way of opposition, the Mariners of Kings Point refused to play the role presented to them and unlike the St. Peter's five proceeded to give the Maroon a very lively evening before suc- cumbing 48-40 on Friday evening january twenty-fourth at the Great Neck gym. With con- trol of both backboards, the home team led at intermission 22-21 but the Rams fought back and maintained the winning streak as Karpowich dropped eleven for the cause. Fordham 58 Georgetown 42 It was a confident team that took off for Washington to engage the Hoyas the following Thursday evening but few of the hoop connois- seurs gave them much of a chance against the Capital live which listed Western Kentucky among its victims. Co-Captain Herb Clann who had been doing a yeoman-like job all season long under the backboards and in brief but effective scoring splurges took the offense on his sturdy shoulders against Kraus, Kostecka and Co. to lead the inspired Rams to a decisive 58-42 win. Witlm Mulvihill and Graham doing great de- fensive work on the high scoring Hoyas, Herb tallfed twenty-one points to account for the mar- gin of victory. Looking not at all like the thirteen point favorites the sports world had figured them for, the Hoyas were behind all the way after leading the Rams 10-7 early in the game. The Washingtonians had a power-laden team which undoubtedly was not at its best and there was much speculation later in the season as to the reason for the defeat. That night, however, the Rams were functioning on all cylinders and the home team, probably a little stale from too much playing was thoroughly trounced by the New York aggregation which had yet to show the classy brand of ball which was to come in evidence later in the year. Fordham 55 St. Francis 47 Ten victories in the first eleven games and the surprise win over Georgetown put the Rams back on the top of the athletic scene for the first time since the war and there was tension in the Rose Hill gymnasium as an excited ca- K a ., 1 X is .Q X !

Fordham 55 Rutgers 69 After such a terrific pace, a letdown was al- most certain and that letdown occurred on Feb- ruary fifth in New Brunswick, N. J. as the Rams fell before Rutgers College for their second de- feat 69-55. The fourteen point difference hardly tells an accurate story as the scorefwas knotted at fifty-three-all with only four minutes to go, but the Rams with both Shiels and Clann out on fouls didnit have it in the closing minutes as the sharpshooting Scarlet clad hoopsters pulled away to a well earned victory. Smitty netted eighteen in the losing cause. Fordham 56 Columbia 55 If the defeat was inevitable it happened at a fortunate time because it was a fighting Maroon 'Herb Clunn--forwardf' five which took the floor against Columbia Uni- versity the following Saturday and after the smoke had cleared from the roughest contest of the season the scoreboard showed a 56-55 win for the Rams. This one was a thriller from start to finish as the Rose Hillers battled with big Walter Budko under the boards and held the six-five center to fifteen points while Smitty and Karp were ringing up nineteen and sixteen re- spectively for the winners. Fordham 69 Pratt 42 The second team played most of the game against Pratt on March eleventh to rest the first five for the next afternoon's contest against St. john's and romped to a 69-42 walkaway. Bob Gebhardt tallied twelve as the scoring was well distributed among members of both the first and second stringers. Fordham 36 St. johns 60 The team may have gotten enough sleep that evening but the psychological and physical effect that six foot nine Harry Boykoff had on its hoop proficiency was too much for the Maroon and resulted in the third defeat of the campaign 60-56 as the big boy pivoted for seventeen points and passed for a dozen more to swamp the hard fighting but inadequate Rams. It wasn't that the Rose Hillers weren't capable of handling St. john's but rather that the game the night before and Boykoff blended unharmoniously with an off night to produce a disastrous setback not only as far as the game itself was concerned but also in respect to the reputation of the team which depended so much on this important game. Fordham 60 Manhattan 53 Once again though the Rams bounced off the canvas and this time Manhattan College felt the full effect of stung pride as the Rams roared to a rugged 60-53 win. The gym was so crowded that hundreds had to be turned away as the tra- ditional battle of the Bronx got under way and right from the outset it was evident that though it would be hard sledding this was a Fordham evening. The Rams, guided by Mulvihill and with Smith, Clann and Karpowich hitting with everything, pulled away early in the second half and went on to stave off a last minute Jasper attack which fell seven points short of its goal. Fordham 69 Fort Schuyler 41 Fort Schuyler dropped in at Rose Hill on the eighteenth to try to upset the applecart but the Maritime Academy just didn't have it that night and were scuttled 69-41 as Gerry Smith broke out his set shot for a seventeen point evening to put him into a scoring lead which he never relinquished. A ., 1? "Bob Mulvihill-guard." Fordham 69 West Point 52 Another military installation fell before the Ram machine the following Saturday, this time the United States Military Academy at West Point, 69-52. The cadets had the misfortune to run against the Fordham five at its peak for the year and there were few teams in the country which would have handled the Maroon that afternoon. With Karp on the fast break, Smitty hitting from every conceivable angle and Mul- vihill holding the Point's high scorer to six points, the Adamsmen rolled to an impressive victory in preparation for the two key games ahead. Fordham 65 N. Y. U. 61 On February twenty-seventh, the season reached its climax as the highly favored New York University squad crossed the borough to duplicate its football win over the Fordham Roaders and were turned back by the never-say- die Ram quintet 65-61 in the most thrilling bat- tle of a thrilling campaign. Mulvihill put the evil eye on All-American Sid Tanenbaum and Smitty and Karp carried the point getters to account for the upset of upsets as the lead sea-sawed back and forth until the last minutes when Karp dropped two foul shots to put the winners ahead 62-61 and Smitty added a layup and foul to account for the margin of victory. Fordham 57 C. C. N. Y. 86 With the City championship in their grasp the Rams went back to the Sixty Ninth Regiment Armory, the scene of the St. john's debacle and this time repeated the poor performance against City College as the effects of the N. Y. U. game slowed the Maroon just enough for the sizzling City five to romp, 86-57. City's fast breaking and deadly accurate combination of two teams of almost equal strength just about ran the Rams out of the armory and on that afternoon at least the Beavers had few if any equals. Nat Holman's well coached charges broke out into an early twelve point lead and it was really no contest after that. Lionel Malamed and Sid Trubowitz teamed to outscore and outdefend the slower moving Rose Hillers despite the eighteen point contribution of Tony Karpowich who carried the Maroon attack almost alone. As a consequence of the altogether unexpected record of seventeen wins and only four defeats, talk of post season contests began to pass around the campus and rumors of impending games with Seton Hall College, Canisius College and various invitation tournaments spread like wildhre. From the outset, it was evident that the Rose Hillers, who refused all Madison Square Garden dates, would not go to the National Invitation Tourna- ment and the defeat by City College gave the Beavers first choice at the NCAA Tourney. But plans were being made for two contests. The first was to be held in the Westchester County Center for the Archbishop Stepinac High School Memorial Fund. When Seton Hall announced that it would be unable to compete, Iona College jumped at the chance to erase its early season set- back by Fordham. A Fordham 57 Iona 56 A crowd of some thirty-five hundred jammed the hall on Saturday evening, March eighth to "Gerry Smith--foru'ard." W ' 1 as + S 'Q 1 G ' 'WS if al S 5 'Sf S Q fx 5, 2 x Stepping out of his usual role as a defensive star, Bob Mulvihill showed he could still be a scorer if he wanted to and led the Rams with sixteen points and still managed to set up most of the plays. The Westchester team drove right down to the wire after a late start with Pericas and O'Hagan splitting the cords for seventeen points apiece but the Fordham Roaders had the class and that's usually what counts. "Dan Graham-center." Fordham 47 Canisius 55 The second post season contest was played as a benefit for the rehabilitation of the athletic facilities in the Philippine missions and was sponsored by the Jesuit Philippine Bureau. The Rams were scheduled to oppose Canisius College in the feature game of an all Jesuit double- header in which the opening encounter saw Georgetown tackle Boston College. The Buffalo aggregation promised New York- ers a colorful and talented squad for, although their season's average was just a little above .500 they listed among their victims N. Y. U., City College and L. I. U., three of the city's best quintets. A capacity crowd of five thousand fans set an attendance record at the Sixty Ninth Regi- ment Armory to watch the engagement. After Georgetown had fashioned a hard won triumph over Boston College which played with- out the services of Elmore Morganthaler, the Golden Griffins of Canisius proceeded to show the Met assemblage the reason for their fine rep- utation as they handed the Rose Hillers a 55-47 setback. Sparked by Leroy Chollet and Tom Niland, the upstaters were hard pressed in the first half which ended in a 29-29 deadlock but came back strong in the second period with a smoothly coordinated attack which carried them "Karpou-'ich-Two Points." to a well deserved victory. The Rams played their hearts out in this closing contest but with Chollet dominating his offensive backboard and registering twenty-one points and with Niland hawking Karpowich all evening, defeat was in- evitable. The locals got one real bit of satisfac- tion, however, in watching Bob Mulvihill once again giving a flawless defensive exhibition this time holding Hank O'Keefe, the Canisius high scorer, to a mere six points. As a result of his splendid play Chollet was voted as the outstand- ing participant of the night and he was presented with a trophy for his performance. As a result of splitting the post season encoun- ters, the Rose Hillers closed a highly successful campaign with an overall record of eighteen wins and only five defeats. Wlien Coach Adams held his Hrst practice those many months ago few con- ceded him much of a chance to win more than half of the games. The team started slowly, picked up momentum as the season rolled on, reached its most exciting climax on the evening of the New York University game and never reached that peak again. Karp and Smitty ac- counted for the bulk of the scoring with regular help from Clann, Graham, Mulvihill, Shiels and Abele. Vifith Mulvihill shining as the court gen- eral and contributing to the all around welfare of the club, an inexperienced and erratic outfit turned into a hoop power which, if it could have played its own game on two other occasions would have been rated among the countrys best. It was more than unfortunate that the Maroon showed to its poorest advantage when the sports writers covered the games but the excitement of the breathtaking victory over St. Francis, the suspense of the seven minute freeze as Man- hattan was overcome, the all around efficiency displayed in the Vifest Point encounter and finally the sensational triumph notched over N. Y. U. were ingredients of a dish to please the most critical basketball gourmet. To those who contributed so much to the sea- son's success go the thanks of the entire student body, especially to those Seniors who have played their last game on the prairie known as the Uni- versity gymnasium. Co-captains Herb Clann, "Fr, Gannon Presents the Outstanding Player Au-'ard to Leroy Cbollet of Cdlliiilljfl Tony Karpowich, and Bob Gebhardt were the class of forty-seven's representatives and Bob Mulvihill will probably not be able to return to the hoop wars as his eligibility has run out. Every real sportsman appreciates a fighting team and this was a fighting team, a team far from terrihc on paper but murder on the court and most important of all a true Fordham team. Thanks a lot and good luck next season. TRACK WITH the beginning of classes in September, undergraduates, traveling the wind- ing paths of Rose Hill, found that as usual, Track Coach Bob Giegengack already had his scantily clad athletes darting from behind the sturdy elms that dot the campus and pitting their might against the cross country course at Van Cortlandt Park till exhaustion apparently forced them to halt. Mr. G., who was discharged from the Service the year previous, was looking for- ward to what he hoped would be one of his most successful cross country seasons. With an ex- pectant gleam in his eye and a song in his throat, "Manager and Coach of the Winged Feet." he would tell any and all who would listen of the power that was packed in the 1946 edition of the Ram harrier team. Stars of other Fordham squads that carried the Maroon and White to victory, had returned once more to Rose Hill and were anxiously waiting for that day when the crack of the starter's gun would send them out once again in the quest of track glory. Wher- ever track adicts gathered, the names of such stalwarts as Joe Nowicki, jack Mayes, Fran Leary, and John O'Hare, would always crop into the conversation and with them visions of glit- tering headlines on the sports pages. This preliminary grind is stressed, not so much as an end in itself, but rather with an eye to the future when those minus it, will be missing the stamina needed in those last few yards to the tape. Cross Country molds the champions of the indoor and outdoor campaigns and because of this Bob Giegengack has always stressed the im- portance of it and although the "hill and dalers" as a team never assumed a leadership in this field, they consistently had men "up with the leaders" at the finish. In the first meet of the season, the Varsity placed nine men in the first eleven finishers to turn back the Kings Point Maritime Academy 21-34. Next, the harriers traveled to Kingston, R. I., where they tasted defeat at the hands of a potent Rhode Island State squad led by E. T. O. 10,000 meter champion, Bob Black. Capt. Jack Mayes, who finished fourth, was the first Maroon harrier to cross the finish line. The final count was 22-53. The following week saw the Fordham Hill and Dalers return to the winning road once more by trouncing the Seton Hall squad by the perfect score of 15-40. This same day, the Ram year- lings with Bernie McLaughlin, Bob Butler, and john Prendergast, finishing in a tie for first, de- feated the Pirate Frosh 16-39. Paced by Fran Leary, who finished ninth in the individual scoring, the harriers placed third in the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Championships, while joe Nowicki led the team to a fourth in the Metropolitan A. A. U. cross country run. In a triangular meet with Columbia and New York University, the Maroon forces, again paced by Fran Leary, took second place honors behind a strong New York University team while their freshman cohorts romped off with a victory over the Violet youngsters. The I. C. 4A Title Run, in which the Maroon Hill and Dalers finished ninth, spelled finish to a fairly successful cross country season. In this meet, the harriers and their coach Bob Giegen- gack, had the satisfaction of avenging their only dual meet set-back of the current campaign as their conquerors, Rhode Island State, finished one position back in the No. 10 spot. With a "Thank God" that was evident in their eyes and a sigh of relief in their throats, Ford- ham's speedsters turned from the Cross Country grind and focused their attention on the ap- proaching indoor season. Since the last outdoor season "Giegy" had been waiting for the chance that seemed to be in the palm of his hand. A two mile relay that was second to none in the country and a mile relay which would bid fair to become one of Fordham's most sensational baton passing quartets. Long striding Ennis Gray, junior Metropolitan Intercollegiate title-holder of the year previous, was back, in the best shape of his career. Besides this quarter miler, par excellence, Fordham had a list of middle distance men that made opposing coaches shudder. Head- ing the list was joe Nowicki, 1943 Indoor and Outdoor I. C. 4A Half Mile Champ, and Frank Leary, holder of the Metropolitan 1000-yard record. In the distance held, Mr. G. had such dependables as john O'Hare, Indoor I. C. 4A Two Mile champ in 1944 and jack Mayes, who was second in the Metropolitan Two Mile Run in 1943. With all this wealth of talent, Fordham was expected to literally burn up the boards at will. At the close of the month of November, the - ' "The fleet foe Nowickif' most popular and successful member of track and field teams at Fordham, Bob Giegengack, resigned after six short seasons to accept a simi- lar position at Yale University. During his stay at Rose Hill, Mr. G. was well liked by everyone who came into contact with him and he was sorely missed by the members of the team. Under his tutelage, Maroon squads gained many na- tional honors, highlighted by the capture of the Indoor I. C. 4A Team title in 1941 and runner- up honors in 1942. Also in 1942, his One Mile, Two Mile and Sprint Medley teams, set the existing records for the Senior Metropolitan A. A. U. Meet with the Sprint Medley time of 1 : 59.1 being a world record. The Junior National l "foe Out From' to Stay." Mile Relay record is held by a Giegengack coached team, while in 1939 at Dartmouth, two of his quartets set world marks in the mile relay Q3:1i.2j and the 1600 meter relay. Nor were his eitorts restricted only to the relay teams. Some of the many individual champions brought to the fore by "Giegy," were Wesley Wfallace. Frank Slater, XValter Carey and Bernie Milham ot the past while joe Nowicki, Fran Leary and jack Ol-lare of the present squad. are other products of his coaching. Giegengack is gone from Fordham but the memory of what he did for Rose Hill will never leave. Replacing the eliicacious Mr. Giegengack, was a man well known to many of the members of the present track team as well as to the enthusi' asts of Maroon winged foot squads - Artie 222 O'Connor. Mr. O'Conner graduated from Ford- ham in 1928, captained the track team in 1927 and '28 and hlled in as war time successor to "Giegy" when he entered the Service in 1942. Artie's stay at Rose Hill. then, was very success- ful and his appointment came as a surprise to no one. The Tracksters opened the indoor season with three armory llat track meets and immediately served notice that they were a threat in every running event from 300 to 1000-yards. ln the Grover Cleveland Games, Bernie McLaughlin, a Freshman, won the Novice 600-yard rung jerry Connolly and joe Nowicki took second and third in separate handicap 1000-yard runs, while the quarter-milers teamed up into two quartets to take second and third place honors in two sepa- rate one mile baton passing events. The next week, both joe Nowicki and Hal McDonnell scored in the Invitation 1000-yard and 500-yard runs in the Columbus Council Knights of Colum- bus Games. Nowicki was a foot out of first place, while Hal, in the number three spot in his event, was live yards back. Three firsts helped the boardsters finish fourth in the team scoring in the Senior Metropolitan Indoor Track and Field Championships. Joe No- wicki took the 1000-yard run in the scintillating time of 2:15. The Ram one and two mile relay foursomes, in winning their respective events, set championship records under Armory flat floor, Hat-shoed conditions. The two mile combination of jack O'Hare, Fran Leary, Ed Carney, and jerry Connolly, won hands down over their near- est competitors in 7 minutes, 50.2 seconds. Ed Carney, who took the stick in third place, turned in a sizzling 1:55 performance to break up the race and move the team up into the lead. The one mile relay runners again showed their heels to the opposition. Lead-off man Bill Lane passed the baton to jim Kent a close third and the blond junior lost no time in taking over the lead. Ennis Gray and Hal McDonnell, running third and fourth, continued to pile up a lead, with I-Ial's 49.9 anchor leg outstanding. Having successfully demonstrated to the New York fans their powers on the track, Fordham's spiked shoe artists traveled to Boston where they won in all three events they entered-Nowicki in the Invitation 1000-yard run, and the one and two mile relays. Lead off man of the two mile relay, jack Mayes, turned in a sensational 1:58 leg that had both the spectators and opposition, gasping. Handed a twelve yard lead, the team went on to victory without difficulty. Two weeks later the team returned to Boston to compete in the Annual Indoor Meet of the Boston Ath- letic Association. Here, joe Nowicki lowered the six year old standard in the Lapham 1000 to 2:11.8. In doing this, joe, who is the Maroon powerhouse at the half mile, equaled the Boston Garden record and posted the fastest 1000 of the entire season. Sandwiched in between these two Boston meets was the 40th running of the Millrose Games - the opening of indoor spiked shoe banked track competition in New York City. Here, Fordham scored two firsts, one second, one "One Mile Relay Team." third and one sixth place to score in every event entered. Nowicki chalked up his third victory in three weeks by taking the Millrose Half Mile in 1:54.7, while the two mile relay defeated the highly touted Illinois foursome by four yards in 7:49.1. This was the fastest clocking turned in by an Eastern two mile foursome during the in- door season. The mile relay tasted their first defeat in this meet when they lost by one yard to Ohio State in the fastest mile relay time since 1942,-3 minutes 25.1 seconds. The next week found the Ram stalwart, joe Nowicki, posting his fifth straight victory in taking the Halpin 880 in the New York Athletic Club Games. This was the third time Fordham Joe won this event, having breasted the tape first in 1943 and '44, The two mile relay, due largely to a splendid 1255.6 third leg effort by Ed Car- ney, in which he made up twelve yards and put the Rose Hill foursome in the lead, was able to extend its winning streak to six consecutive vic- tories. With jim Kent taking the lead right at the crack of the starter's gun, the mile relay looked like a sure bet to win as "Red" Lane, Eno Gray and Hal McDonnell continued to hold the lead. But coming off the last turn, Manhattan's johnny Quigley shot past on the inside, to win by a foot and a half. Totaling seventeen points in five events, the O'Connormen finished in third place in the team scoring in the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Track and Field Championships. The big weakness in the team not doing better was the fact that the one point contributed by Sophomore Bill Mc- Allister in the pole vault was Rose Hill's lone tally in the field events. There were no Maroon entries in the shot put or other weight throws, as no one had even tried out for these events. Fordham runners figured in the scoring in the two mile run, with a fifth place by jack Lynch, in the 1000'yard and 600-yard runs, with third places by jerry Connolly and Hal McDonnell, respectively. The two mile relay made it six wins in a row, while the mile relay quartet took its third straight second place award. Back at Gotham's great sport emporium- Madison Square Garden, the following week- end, the Ram two mile relay quartet of jack O'Hare, joe Nowicki, Ed Carney and jerry Con- "Two Mile Relay Team-Pemz Relay Champs." X me "Hal McDonnell." nolly, won the National A. A. U. title with forty yards to spare in 7:50.4. Nowicki's 1:56.5 second leg effort was truly great inasmuch as he had run two 1000-yard races previously. With jerry Connolly, the mile relay and the two mile quartet scoring for Rose Hill, Fordham took third place in the Annual I. C. 4A Cham- pionships. The mile relay, with Gray and Mc- Donnell both shading 50 seconds for their legs, took second place behind the same team that they had beaten in the trials. Despite the fact that jerry Connolly was literally pushed off the track and given a thorough roughing up in both the trials and the final, he still finished third, just three-tenths of a second off the winning time. In the last of the Garden meets for the 1947 season, the 28th Annual Athletic Games of the New York Chapter Knights of Columbus, joe Nowicki won the Bishop Mclntyre Invitation 1000-yard run with twelve yards to spare in the fastest time turned in on the Garden track this year-2:12.1. The Ram thinclads grabbed a good share of the spotlight in the Metropolitan junior A. A. U. Meet. In the 600, Hal McDonnell and jim Kent took one, two, with the former breaking the eight-year-old standard with a 1:12.9 effort. This was the fastest flat track 600-yard run of the current season and for this he received the out- standing performance trophy that evening. Al Hayden, another Rose Hill entry, took fifth place in this same run. In the 1000-yard run, Ram co- favorites jerry Connolly and Ed Carney were surprised by Henry Eckert of the Grand Street Boys, who zoomed off the last turn and won by inches. jack Lynch took a solid third in the three mile run, while the mile relay took a second, four yards out of first place. The following Friday, in the 7th Regiment Meet, jerry Connolly, the Mercury-footed junior, turned the tables on favored Tommy Quinn to win his first individual race as a collegian in the special 1000-yard run. In the mile relay, excel- lent third and fourth legs by jim Kent and Hal McDonnell gave to the Ram foursome a well- deserved victory. Kent made up a fifteen-yard deficit and McDonnell stretched a two-yard lead to ten yards. The next night in Teaneck, N. J., another Fordham mile relay combination was clocked in 3:25.4, to take that event there. A scintillating 49.2 anchor leg by Gray brought the team from three yards back to three in front at the finish. For this win, the team was awarded the second trophy to be brought back to Rose Hill this year. Thus, with victory bells ringing, the track team closed its season in New York and traveled out to Cleveland and Chicago to conclude their in- door running for '47, In Cleveland, Joe Nowicki took the invitation 1000-yard run with twenty yards to spare. Both the two mile and the one mile relay foursomes were nosed out of victory in this meet by the width of an eyelash. Arriving in Chicago a scant two hours before the meet started, the boys had no time to rest. Despite this fact, the mile relay of Bernie McLaughlin, Jim Kent, Hal McDonnell and Eno Gray took a sec- and place and turned in the fastest mile relay time by any Fordham quartet this season. TENN IN line with the general postwar resurgence of sports on Rose Hill, the 1947 edition of the Tennis team looked forward to a brisk and interesting season after a somewhat mediocre revival last year when only two out of six matches proved victories for the Maroon. And so it was with considerable optimism that the call was made, early in March, for candi- dates, and it was with great surprise that player- coach Fred Krais found over thirty hopefuls an- swering the summons. With all but one of last year's lettermen in the ranks, the racqueteers "Fred Krais! looked forward to the opening of the season. Fred Krais, who takes the double role of coach and No. 1 man on the squad, easily quali- fies for both positions. A former National junior Doubles Champion, he added the Mediterranean Theatre of Operation Doubles Crown to his laurels two years ago. In getting his men ready for their opening encounter, he conducted an elimination tournament among the candidates with the proviso that those unsuccessful hopefuls would be given many more chances to make the squad later in the season, when the luckier net- men might feel content to rest on their laurels. Dick Schilling, jack Scanlon and Joe Haggerty, the returning lettermen, were joined on the squad by Fernando Moreno, Walter McTeigue, Bob Valise, Aurelio Montinola and Caleb Oakley. An attractive nine-match schedule has been arranged, and the talent manifest on such a squad gives rise to the hope that things are looking up again in the Fordham tennis world. Krais, with an eye to the future, has announced his aim to develop the younger element on the team so that following Ram aggregations will have the advantage of the experience acquired this year.

This year, however, golfers on the campus again found a more interesting and certainly more rewarding aspect to their pursuits in the return of the Varsity Golf Team to the sports limelight. Credit for this enobling endeavor goes to spirited Dick Cole, who last year initiated its half-hearted revival. As player-manager Dick and jack Coffey had attempted with not too much success to put the Maroon back upon the golf horizon. This year, however, their enter- prising efforts were blessed with much greater success. As early as january they began arranging an attractive twelve-match schedule which would occupy the golfer's time from early April to the end of the term. Returning from last years' squad were letter- men Nick Provenzano, joe Hoppel and Ed Bres- lin. Art McGee, Hal Boudreau of football fame, joe Pasquarelli and Howie Van Oehssen helped to fill out the squad. But both Cole and Coffey were agreeably surprised that, among the candi- dates, were Ronald Allen, the 1946 New Jersey Interscholastic champion, and Charles Rogers, a member of last years' winning high school squad in Indiana. the quadrangle or the gridiron, the boys worked out at the Split Rock Municipal course, where all their home matches are played. An insignifi- cant item in municipal sports circles last year, this season's squad turned out to be one of the best in Ram history, completing the campaign with seven victories, two ties and three defeats. The first three matches resulted in a pair of ties -with Queens and Stevens Tech, and a loss to Columbia. Two successive triumphs were then registered, one over Hofstra Q9-75, the other against St. Peter's Q8-Zj. Columbia then won its second match over the Maroon, followed by four victories in a row- "Par Busters." Manhattan C15-51, Queens Q7-lj, Stevens Q5-4j, Manhattan QVUA-3165. St. Peter's then turned the tables on the Rams by a 5 to 1 count, and in the season finale Hof- stra was defeated again, this time by an 8 to 1 score. Manager-captain Dick Cole achieved the best individual record for the season, winning six of his seven individual matches. Charlie Rodgers trailed Cole with eight victories and three losses, and Nick Provenzano won seven, tied one and lost three.

The first game was played at Rose Hill sometime in the Hfties and, in the years that have followed, the name of Fordham has always been linked with the best in college baseball. Several times during the past twenty years the mythical eastern championship has been con- ceded to the nine representing the Old Maroon, and once, in 1942, the crown of the newly formed Metropolitan Conference was won by the dia- mond stalwarts who performed on Fordham Field. A major portion of the success of the Maroon squads in the past twenty-five years is a result of the genuine interest and tireless endeavor of son as baseball coach at Fordham, jack is in the jack Coffey. Now in his Silver Anniversary sea- "Genial jack and Iwo maiusiaysl' ' vi process of rebuilding his Ram baseball team which barely eked out an existence during the lean war years. With most of last season's team back in uni- form, and aided by the return of several former players, the Coffeymen are making their first definite move towards their former position of prominence during this 1947 season. At the present writing five games have been played, with two victories and three defeats re- corded. Handicapped by inclement weather, which limited outdoor practice to little more than a week, the season was successfully launched with a stirring 8 to 7 victory over St. Peter's. Trailing by one run going into the last half of the eighth inning, the Rams tied it up as Captain Perry Mee singled, and circled the basepaths on a hit batsman, a long fly and a wild pitch. Left- fielder Tom Cusmano then pushed across the winning tally with a long three-base hit deep into right field. Don Wiederecht, who relieved starter jim Arbucho in the fourth frame, was the winning hurler. Following a postponement with C. C. N. Y., the Rams achieved their second victory of the season on April 7, defeating Rutgers by a 6 to 5 score. A two-run rally in the top half of the eighth inning gave the Maroon its victory and enabled Coach CoiTey's number one hurler, jim Arbucho, to win his first start of the campaign. Centerfielder Mark Howe knocked in the tying run with a triple and scored the winning tally on a long Hy ball by Ray Metrulis. The next afternoon the Rams dropped their Met Conference inaugural to Brooklyn College, l l "Perry Mee--Captain." bowing by a 14 to 8 count. Although holding the Kingsmen to but eight scattered hits, wildness on the part of the Maroon hurlers and some loose play in the held proved costly. Two days later, in another Conference en- counter, this with Hofstra, the Maroon again emerged on the short end of the score, 16 to 8. Then came one of the really fine ball games of the young season, as Rose Hill went down to defeat at the hands of the Yale Blue, 5 to 1. Playing before a capacity crowd of 5000 spec- tators at New Haven, Fordham's jim Arbucho and Eli's Frank Quinn, one of the East's out- standing college twirlers, engaged in a brilliant pitching duel. Arbucho allowed one unearned run in the opening inning and his mates tied it up in the second when Tom Cusmano singled, stole second and came all the way around on jim Quinn's line drive single to right. It was a scoreless affair thereafter until the last of the eighth, when Yale shortstop Art Moher lifted a long drive into the stands in left field for a home run with Pitcher Quinn on first base. Although beaten, Arbucho was very ef- fective, allowing only four hits, fanning four and passing only one. For the remaining eighteen games of the schedule Coach Coffey plans to use the regular lineup of Ray Metrulis, at hrstg Perry Mee, at secondg Tony Camera, at thirdg jim Quinn, shortstopg Tom Cusmano, left fieldg Mark Howe, center, and Frank Lyons, right field. Walt Kozol and Bob Tully will handle the catching and sup- porting Arbucho on the mound will be Don Wiederecht, Walt Suchowiecki, Tom McKeon, Bill Kay, Harry Magee and Ed Kaminski.

Those reports, which are more on the noisy side, can be heard any afternoon coming from the basement of Collins Hall as the Ford- ham Varsity Rifle Team shoots off its practice rounds, The driving force behind this team and the one who is entrusted with the difiicult task of molding an organization of its type, is Sergeant Sam Krus. If you should happen on the "Sarge" during working hours, chances are one look would not sufhce. It takes a series of slow glances to break through the perpetual cigar-smoke haze that seems to follow him around. In his office just olif the rifle range, with one eye glued to a telescope for checking scores on the little white targets, the "Sarge" will gladly expound to any comer his optimism over the team. "The Nimrodsf' The team has not won too many matches this year, there can't be any arguments about that, but the boys are still young. A winning combina- tion can't be worked out in the space of a few months. This sport is no different from any other-it just can't be rushed. Wheii the season started last term, there were only a few old- timers in the group. Old-timers in that they might have been around before the war, or pos- sibly last year. This year's captain, Joe Iacovo, earned his letter in '46, as did John Aellen and Thomas H. Smith. Those are the boys that the team necessarily had to be built around. The boys got off to a slow start, dropping quite a few matches, both shoulder to shoulder matches and postal matches. lacovo and Aellen were the only boys with shoulder to shoulder experience behind them, so we were decidedly at a disadvantage. By january 4th of this year things had brightened up considerably. Navy invited us down for a match on their range at Annapolis on that date. Our boys had some ex- perience behind them now, and it would be inter- esting to see how they would do against a really tough foe. We didn't beat Navy but we gave them quite a tussle. The final score was some- thing like 1358 to 1325. But that thirty-three point advantage was taken from the standing position which is the most difficult, and which takes a lot of practice. Our team took its first match against Rochester in a postal affair. We also took a couple of other mail-order affairs with the University of Pitts- burgh and Penn State. The two matches that really showed our boys to good advantage were the ones conducted with Columbia. Those boys really know how to shoot and were highly fa- vored to swamp us. One couldn't expect the boys to do the impossible but they almost did. In the first match Columbia beat us by two points, and in the second contest, which was held here on March lst, the Lions managed to beat us by one point 888-887. We outscored them from every position except from prone, and that spelled the difference between victory and defeat. That's the kind of improvement the team has been showing all year. Sergeant Krus with justifiable pride can look on his 1947 edition of the Ramrods, and know that next year Fordham will really show the opposition how a rifle match should be shot off. FE . ,CED by a robust crew of ardent en- thusiasts, Fencing again emerged upon the Ford- ham sports scene this year with all of its old pre- war vigor, if not its success. Too long had it been missing from the sports pages of the RAM and it was welcomed back with gusto. Mr. john Winters, of the faculty, took over the teaching reins and fashioned a ten-man squad out of many candidates whose only claim, with a few notable exceptions, to their jobs was their unbounded enthusiasm. And it was their loyalty, devotion and interest that made the season a tribute to them as well as their coach. Nick Paschalides was chosen captain of a team which was featured by the work of Vinnie Simko, Dick Lutz and Bill Latzko. Long gruelling hours in the gym were spent to teaching the boys the rudiments of the trade, and how to handle them- selves in intercollegiate competition. The highly technical and stylized aspects of this intricate sport were stressed amid the confusion of a basketball scrimmage and the clatter of the track- men negotiating their laps around the floor. It was amazing that any team emerged at all under these difficutl conditions. ING The Ram fencers engaged in six matches and lost them all. In one or two cases, however, a break or a difficult decision which went against them decided the issue. This was notable in the Columbia affair which, after much prespiration and anticipation, became a disappointing defeat. But, as they must. Fordham's fencers took their travails in stride, realizing that "Rome wasn't built in a day." The cry of "Wait 'til next year" carries some significance on the campus when the fencing team is considered, as most of the boys will be back with a year of invaluable, though at times disheartening, experiencegunder their belts. It is confidently expected that with the spirit displayed this year and the ability hinted at in this season's matches, Fordham's fencing rivals next year will find the Maroon a much tougher and more victorious aggregation. The Record Fordham 1 Army 16 Fordham 4 N. Y. U. 23 Fordham 11 Columbia 16 Fordham 3 Mercado Club 24 Fordham 9 Princeton 18 Fordham 3 Brooklyn College 24 WIMMI G ,EED by its outstanding individual performer, Captain Johnnie Sorman, Coach john Lyttle's swimming team enjoyed a fairly success- ful season during the winter campaign, capturing top honors in three of the ten meets, and finish- ing fifth in the Metropolitan College Cham- pionships. Bowing to such tank powers as Columbia, R. P. I., Rutgers, Colgate, Syracuse, N. Y. U. and C. C. N. Y., the Maroon natators were long on quality but short on quantity, and the superior depth of these opponents proved to be too much for the Lyttlernen to handle. The mermen started the season off on the right foot with a convincing 40 to 55 triumph over Brooklyn College on December 7. jack Crilly in the quarter mile free-style, john New- ton in the 150-yard backstrokeg the 300-yard medley relay composed of john Sorman, John Newton and john McLoughlin, and the un- beatable Sorman in the 200-yard backstroke, were the featured performers in this inaugural win. A week later the Rams suffered their first defeat, losing to Columbia by a 43 to 32 count in the Lion pool. Noticeably weak in the sprint events, the Maroon annexed first in three events. john Sorman won the breast-stroke once again, the 500-yard medley relay, with Newton, Sorman and McLoughlin, was an easy winner, and the 400-yard free-style quartet of Don Kiesel, Stan Nowicki, Sorman and McLoughlin also tri- umphed. Adding to the Ram total were Charlie Kane, jim Nugent, Don Kiesel, John Newton and Jack Crilly, who garnered second places. Kiesel also came through with a third and New- ton finished second in the dive. The mermen, who did their Christmas shop- ping early, presented Coach Lyttle with a 45 to 30 victory gift over Manhattan just four days before Christmas. In defeating the jaspers, 3 George Roach was the individual star with vic- tories in both the 50 and 100. The medley relays finished first once again and john Sorman made it three straight in his backstroke specialty. Speedy John also took second in the quarter free-style. The other scorers were john Newton, with a pair of seconds, and Don Kiesel and jack Crilly, each with a second and a third to their credit. During the Christmas holidays the team swam against two of the section's best--Syracuse and Rensselaer-and was defeated in both outings. john Sorman and the 500-yard medley relay were the lone bright spots in the losses to the Orange and the men from Troy. I Despitethe absence of john Sorman and john Newton, the Lyjllelemen returnedi to the victor's circle on: Feliuary 1, defeating St. Peter's of jersey City, 35 to 51. Kane, Crilly and Roach were all victors for the Maroon, while the 400- yard free-style relay quartet of Broderick, No- wicki, Kiesel and Roach clinched the meet for Fordham in the final event of the afternoon. Three weeks later the Rams played host to Colgate and were beaten, 62 to 13. The lone Ram to break into the victory column was john Sor- man, who annexed the 200-yard breast-stroke. Rutgers, City College and N. Y. U. defeated the Maroon and, in the Metropolitan Collegiate Championships, staged at the Brooklyn College pool at the season's end, Fordham finished fifth with eighteen points. The Rams' best effort was a second place in the 300-yard medley relay, in which the trio of john Sorman, john Newton and john McLoughlin trailed N. Y. U. over the finish line. Rounding out the scoring for Rose Hill were Don Kiesel, fourth in the 220-yard free-style, john Sorman, third in the 200-yard breast-stroke, john Newton, fifth in the fancy dive, and the 400-yard free-style relay fBroderick, Kiesel, Nowicki and Sormanj fourth.
