3 BACKWARD . . . upon the years of war and peace
that constitute so much of the history of the Class of '47, there
is no one date where one can say, "Here-we began." 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,

members of a Freshman class of unprecedented
size. 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
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
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,
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
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

life to halls now almost deserted. Only a bare
nucleus remembered the old Fordham ways.
The war could not wait for gentler things.
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
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
generation was struck by the lightning Hash of
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
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-
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

team, had left for Yale to be replaced by the

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-
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-

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.

tally, remember that these were crowded years
and the facts and faces were not so easily as-
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
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.
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.

at Fordham in '41 with a couple of years out for army serv-
ice, Jim has been the chairman of many a committee since he
first arrived at Rose Hill. One of the best liked men in the
class, his greatest claim to fame is that he was the only
member of the Enlisted Reserve Corps to return to Fordham
as an Army student. As you go to the polls from year to

Mike was perhaps the least concerned individual in our class
and, at the same time, one of the most popular. In discus-
sions among his wide circle of acquaintances, Mike never
held the center of the spotlight for very long but when he
did speak he often "broke up the show" with one of his
choicely worded expressions. An ardent follower of Fordham's
varsity teams ever since he can remember, Mike lent his own
athletic prowess to many a class team. In his quiet, Irish way
Mike will go through life winning friends and coining

"The 1'11.fl'L'll.0ZI.f council ibm flir-
ro Iver! "
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
- 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
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.

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.
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-
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.
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
"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
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-

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
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.

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-
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
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
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
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-
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
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
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-
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
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-
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-
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
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
With Wednesday night all the legendary fig-
ures whose names graced the second page of the
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
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

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
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

freshman editor of "Ramblings" which he wrote

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
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.

'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
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

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

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.

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

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.

stood as the most ambitious attempt of a most
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
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
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
Bronx with "Everyman" Such an innovation gave
rise to more ambitious "road" ventures in the
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.
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.

far and wide, as they journeyed to schools and
concert halls in New York and neighboring
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.

,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

that subjects as dissimilar as "Cartesianism" and

Finally, as something of a junior-grade "Cer-

rection of Mr. Edmund V. O'Sullivan. Tradition-
ally, this group is looked to further, as upper-

TREMENDOUSLY bolster-ed by an
influx of 30 freshman and many upperclass re-
turnees, a large and eager German Club wel-
comed Mr. Albert Kaelin, their moderator back
from his service in Germany with the War 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.

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
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.

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

JOHN F. 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.
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
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
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
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
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.

Excitement ran high as the Maroon journeyed
south to Washington, D. C. for the season in-

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-

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

first and third periods and twice in the second
and fourth quarters.
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

Saturday afternoon, an underdog Ram eleven
was soundly trounced by the powerful Gaels

gans, led by their sensational All-American half-
back, Herman Wfedemeyer. staged an outstand-
ing aerial circus for the thirty-five thousand

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
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.
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

turned out at State by Coach Bob Higgins, and the
veteran mentor turned loose against the Rams a

The home forces counted three times in the first

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
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

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.

"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-
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-
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.

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.
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
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.
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
eleven points but the Rams had their own way
during the closing minutes and went on to amass
a total of 53 points.
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
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.

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
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
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-
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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-

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.
If the defeat was inevitable it happened at a
fortunate time because it was a fighting Maroon
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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

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.
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
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.
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
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

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

asts of Maroon winged foot squads - Artie

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

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.

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.

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 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.
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
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

Instead of hacking up the cherished soil on
IN former years the ardent par-
busters on the campus would indulge their favor-
ite pastime with a mashie niblick and a few
worn-out drugstore balls on the football field,
with an eye on the gym to see if Pat Kenneally
would come raging out at their destruction of
his sacred gridiron. 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
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-
Manhattan C15-51, Queens Q7-lj, Stevens Q5-4j,
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
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

ONE of the oldest and most pros-
perous forms of athletics at Fordham-a sport
which dates back to the early eighteen hundreds
-is baseball. 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
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'
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
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,
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.

CONTRARY to all reports, the war
is not over. 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
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 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.
. ,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.
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.

,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-
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
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,
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
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.
