HOOPER, 5.1. E dedicate this book to the REVEREND JOHN J. HOOPER, S.j., our new Assistant Dean. A loyal and devoted son of St. Ignatius, he has been a moral force in our midst and has helped us to develop a real concept of values. His solicitous concern for our moral, scholastic and physical needs, irrespective of time, place or circumstance, has singled him out as a zealous educator. He is our ideal of a true Knight of the Grail. THEME FOR THE DIVIDED VIOLINS RHAPS the most familiar of all the'Grail romances is represented in the culminating work of Richard Wagner. In his opera, Parrifal, we find the legend vitalized with becoming dignity and artistry. Here Parrifal is "the blameless fool, made wise by pity." Unaware of the significance of Monsalvat and the resolve of the X Knights who live there, he is brought, by chance, into their domain l- . . . and company. Once there he witnesses the solemn rite of the Grail X 'xx landxalso the intense sufferings of Amfortas. These things do little more thanipconfuse him until he questions the Knights concerning the cir- ctirnstances that endowed them with so sacred a treasure as the Grail and abciut the events which caused Amfortas to be wounded. He is told thatibesidie the Grail these Knights are entrusted with the Lance which pierced Christ's side and that the latter is to be used by the Knights -to defend and protect the Grail. Amfortas, Qthey advise himj was disarmiipl of the.Lance by Klingsor-a man refused admittance to the Brotherhood of Knights, because of his moral depravity. The Knights believe tlkt the woiihds of Amfortas will not heal nor the grace-giv- ing powerx of the Grail be restored until the Lance is reinstated at Monsalvahilx I i i Parsifal isxmoved by pity, by the sympathy he feels for Amfortas to go in searclt of the Lance. His departure, however, is ridiculed by the Knights as aXfool's errand, since they are certain that he-like Am- fortas-will be sdduced by Kundry, a woman in Klingsor's realm. In the succeeding action we see Parsifal in the Garden of Maidens where Kundry is trying to entice him away from his quest. He is sud- denly inspired to reproach her and realizes, for the first time, the acute need to restore the Lance. Pity is no longer his only motivation. He acts now with conviction. By near miraculous means he finally achieves the Lance. Returning to Monsalvat, he is hailed by the Knights as their new leader. All re- ceive anew the benediction of the Grail and pledge themselves to more loyal and humble service. 5 It is curious to recall that Wagner assigned the music of the Grail Motive to the divided violins. To a relatively simple melody, carried by the first violin, the other violins play intricate harmony. Therefore, it is not without precedent that we attempt the counterpoint of the above theme. The Grail is the Relique-Royale, is the Eucharist, is truth-as-such, is Truth as grace reveals the Truth. The Lance, then, is Knowledge. We admit the distinction between Truth and Knowledge, while we remind ourselves that they should not be separated. Reflecting on these facts, can we not say that our efforts to gain an education-both in their unpretentious beginnings and in their purposeful maturation-parallel Parsifal's search for the Lance? To the degree that we achieve Knowledge we emulate his actual acquisi- tion o f the Lance. In so far as we will avail ourselves of the Source of Truth, to the extent that we will be sympathetic receptors of grace -we, too, can be Knights of the Grail. We can be but are not necessarily, Parsifals all. If this is our pro- gram for living, we must anticipate the Klingsors and Kundrys, obstacles and difficulties. We must, furthermore, constantly confess dependence on God's grace. If we recognize these conditions, we hope to use our Knowledge to protect us in our quest for Truth. this is optimistic to the point of sophistication and while we do intend such sophistication we, likewise, can not be convinced that effort will be "a fool's errandf' p KATHRYN T.

Now we are ready to take the journey on life's highway. No matter what the future holds, we will never forget the many "little" things that helped prepare us for the "big" tasks ahead. Our first year began with a mad series of objective tests, followed by the horrors of Freshmen Initiation. We will never forget our first College Retreat at St. Andrews, conducted by Fr, Cotter, S.J., nor the formal dedication ceremonies, at which Cardinal Spellman blessed the Marble Campus. During the year, we elected Steve Reines, Pres- identg Patty O'Williams, Vice-President, Lois Conway, Treasurer, and Marion Atkinson, Secretary of the class. In December our Senior "sisters" sponsored our first important college dance at the Carroll Club. Before we knew it, winter blossomed into spring, and we were received into the Sodality of Our Blessed Lady. Returning to school after surviving the pitfalls of a summersvacation, we were joined by many new class members and college life was renewed. There were some familiar faces missing . . . George Knips, Steve Reines, Arthur Miller, and Peter Glick- ert had entered the armed forces, while Ann Kelly, Marion Reiss, and Bob Kelly had answered their vocational call and were serving in the spiritul aimy of Our Lord. Harry Vinicombe joined our class after a five year sojourn in the Atlzhetic and Pacific areas, courtesy of the U.S. Navy. Again class elections were held and Andy Crocchiolo became President, Kaye Meany, Vice-President, Carol Madden, Treasurer, and Virginia Acerno, 1, ,X j Secretary. .Y j Our social calendar wasiifulj that year as the returning veterans frequented many school dances. The extra-curricular activities' field was invaded en'masse. Lois Conway was Vice-President of the Gannon Council . . . Marie Magee, Richard Guardino, and john Jennings were on, hand during Thalian productionsi. .'. Mary Finnerty and Juliet Starace represented us in the Glee Club. Along with a full social schedule came an academic program that 'demanded deep thinking. We were ,introduced into the gym- nastics of Logic via Fr. O'Brien's combined English-Latin course, "Nihil est in in- tellectu . . I , , Discussions of legal technicalities dominated the conversations of Phyllis McCloy, Eileen Hurley, Mary jo Durkin, Marie Magee, and Michael Iacano, upon their ascent to the School of Law. This was our junior year . . . there was no Senior class . . . hence we reigned supreme. For many of us, it was our first introduction to 8:05 classes . . . asa class we elected Barbara Clark, Presidentg Muriel Hanley, Vice-President, Dave Miller, Treasurer, and john Roche, Secretary . . . the academic calendar included our first liducation course with Dr. Kelly. Four of our Seniors took over "Curved Horn" posts and Mary Finnerty directed the Glee Club. Our class agreed to combine the junior Prom with the Fordham War Memorial Ball, the event of the year which dominated the activities of almost every junior . . . finally May 14th arrived and we danced to the strains of Tex Beneke's Band . . . the culminating event of the year was the All School aliair . . . and then summer was at hand again. 11 How time flies . . . Sept. '47 . . . and we were about to achieve our goal. This was our final year at Fordham, our Senior year . . . the journey was almost at an end . . . practice teaching and part time jobs occupied the mornings of almost every class member. Sara Romeo had become Mrs. Altmann and Madeline Maurano was now Mrs. Zema, later in the year Dave Miller joined the ranks of the Benedicts . . . Senior elections were held and Barbara Clark was Presidentg Dave Miller, Vice-President, Virginia Acerno, Treasurerg and Helen Scanlon, Secretary . . . Lois Conway was elected Editor of "The Grail," and plans went under way for our yearbook . . . Harry Vinicombe and Kaye Meany were Editor and Business Manager of the Curved Horn . . . "The Grail" sponsored a Raffle of "A Basket of Cheer with a Good Foundation" during the Christ- mas season, and Bill Smith, a former member of our class was the lucky winner . . . Dave Miller was named chairman of the Senior Ball which was held at the Ritz Carleton. Plans were made for our Senior Closed Retreat, our Senior Luncheon at Whyte's, Bac- calaureate Sunday on the Campus and our own Graduation Exercises in Keating Hall. And what of the things that we, as a class, did not do together . . . the smaller things, the day to day activities . . . lunch and snacks at the Baltimore, visits to Miss Scanlon's Ofiice, campus classes for the scientists-summer sessions for the speedsters, exam post mortems in the halls, Claire Trainor's trip to Wisconsin to found the N.S.A., the poster drawings of Ed Calabrese and Kay McKeever, rides taken in Muriel Hanley's jeep, the formation of the company of Cathy McCaffery and Alicia Murtha. Many things will be forgotten in future years, but never these . . . the blackboard in the Curved Horn Oliice, unoihcial message center for the class, Mr. White's lectures on class spirit, the grand winding staircase, now only a memory, the ghost elevator that needed no operator, Sodality Dances, Dr. Donnelly's astounding memory, May De- votions in the New Chapel, the persistance of Ann Rossi in selling Grail subscriptions, the Annual Retreat at St. Andrews. These are the things that will never be forgotten, the things that have made our stay at Fordham eventful and fruitful. These are the things that will always stand for Alma Mater.

Arfiz-'iliexz Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4. Take the unstudied charm of a Currier and Ives print, the ingenious appeal of a jon Whitcomb sketch, the blithe sim- plicity of a Betty Benz illustration and mix with proper pro- portions of daintiness and serenity.

Arrii-'ilie.r: E.S.O.: Student Councilg Variety Show '47g Script Committee of All School Show '48g Student Handbook. In a position of leadership, Elinor relies more on charm than on compulsion. She possesses the simple formula of natural eHiciency and has earned our respect and admiration. Gracious- ness and calm reserve are combined with a quiet humor and a happy heart. RALPH ANZANO Major: Social Studies. Minor: History. Degree: B.S. in Educa- tion. Aciizfitier: E.S.O.g Sodality 1. In and out of class Ralph shows a consistency of interest. Diligence epitomizes his attitude toward his studies. Friend- liness, besprinkled with an appropriate sense of humor, inheres in his conversation. ELIZABETH ARNAUD Major: English. Minor: History. Degree: B.S. Arfizfitiex: Sodality 1. Possessing an amazingly direct nature, Betty captures our attention whether the topic is mere "recess chatter" or a con- troversial subject in literature.

Ar1'iz'ilie.r: Sodality 2, 3, 4: Glee Club: Bowling Clubg Inter- national Club. Helen attacks all her problems with a determination and earnestness calculated to surmount any and all obstacles. Her progress in the study of Chemistry, is ample proof of her conscientious nature. VIVIAN BARBACCIA A4-c1j07'I Elementary Ed. Degree: B.S. in Ed. Vivian is aptly named for she thrives on activity. Her enthu- siasm is seemingly limitlessg her interests equally broad. Monot- ony finds no place in her life, and boredom fares no better with her. Happily, she has the faculty of communicating her own vivacity to those about her. FIDEL PHILIP BATTIPEDE Major: Italian. Affinorz French. Degree: B.S. in Education. Phil's knowledge of current affairs is as accurate and reliable as the Dewey Decimal system. Although he enjoys fun, there is a serious note tucked inside for further reference. But serious or humorous, accurate or not, he has our vote for just being Phil. 15 MARC BELTH Major: Philosophy. Minor: History. Degree: B.S. in Education. Artizfi!ie.r: Philosophy Club. Marc's rare gift of intellectual vitality is contagious in its intensity. The depth of his philosophical compression is com- plemented by a unique subtlety of humor which is invigorating in any situation. EILEEN BRENNAN Major: History. Minor: Social Studies. Degree: B.S. Arrizfitierz History Club, Sodality 1, 2, 5, 4: German Club: Bowling Club. Eileen is a firm believer in the old adage, "Variety is the spice of life." Her interests range from roller skating to the sym- phony, politics to basketball. She brings to all her activities a rare enthusiasm that never seems to wane, and a thoroughness that bodes ill for the competition. JANE CAHIR Major: Mathematics. Minor: Physics. Degree: B.S. in Educa- tion. Arriifiriei-: Math Club, Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4. jane is one of those women who is equally at home with a bowling ball, a slide rule, or a tea table. The unbeatable com- bination of poise and adaptability is hers. Graduation opens the door to new worlds to be conquered, and conquer them she will. EDWARD CALABRESE Major: French. Minor: English. Degree: B.S. in Education. Actizfiiier: Thaliansg Science Club, Curved Horn Stair: Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4: Rams, French Club. Ed is a man of many talents. His propensities as an artist are well known. He is the Grand Mufti of Fordham Poster- Makers: and a very competent one he is, too. He is just as proficient with a text-book and a blackboard as he is with a paintbrush. His career as a teacher of languages seems destined to be a successful one. 16 JUNE MARY CALLOW Major: Social Studies. Minor: History. Degree: B.S. Arlizfitiexz Sodality 2, 3g Curved Horn Staff: Grail Photog- raphy Editorg War Memorial Drive. June is as pert and jaunty as a plaid hair-ribbon and just as gay. She has succeeded in endearing herself to many a com- mittee chairman by her energetic cooperation and whole- hearted support of school activities. ANTOINETTE CAPPELLI Major: Mathematics. Minor: Elementary Education. Degree: B.S. in Education. Acrizfirier: E.S.O. Ann has a disposition that is magnetically cheerful and aston- ishingly even.

Her personality is a crystal of many facets, which reflects the light of a commonplace world in a thousand uncommon ways. The gleam of her incisive wit, the glow of her poetic subtlety, the brass-button shininess of her technical efficiency . . . all serve notice that Barbara is an unusual individual, a person of extraordinary talents and promise. GERTRUDE CONSOLO Major: English. llflfll0l'2 Social Studies. Degree: B.S. in Educa- tion. Trudy's engaging smile and roguish laughter, combine with charm and daintiness and a genuine naivete to produce a delightful person. In her more serious moments Gertrude reveals a genuine regard for her work and for her friends' well-being. 17 LOIS CONWAY Major: Speech. Minor: English. Degree: B.S. in Education. Artiuiiier: Curved Horn Staff, Managing Editor '46g Editor '47g Grail Staff, Editor '48, Thalians, Vice-President '46g War Memorial Driveg Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4. Sellless and sane, regal and reliable! What laudable litany could we not write for Lois? Yet, such would displease her very nature and that in itself bespeaks her worth. It is then with restraint that we begin to mention her capabilities. FRANK COOKE Major: English. Minor: Commerce. Degree: B.S. in Education. Ar1iza'itie.r: Gannon Council, Philosophy Club: Thaliansg Sodality 4, Grail Staff. Frank Cooke is the man than whom no one else in Fordham is better dressed.

Degree: B.S, Arfiritier: Photographer for the "Maroon Quill", Sodality 1. Bob comes up just long enough from behind cameras and Hashbulbs to give us a friendly nod and a quick smile.

Artizfilier: History Club, Acting Secretary: Sodality 2, 3, 4g Class Ofiicer: President, '46. Andy seems to have found the secret of perpetual intellectual motion. Idleness is to him, an unknown quantity. Yet, his good disposition tempers the seriousness of his outlook on life, to make his a balanced personality, a character of unusual depth. 18 MARIE CUOMO 1l'fdj0I'Z Elementary Education. Minor: Speech. Degree: B.S. in Education. Aclizfitierz French Clubg Curved Horn Staff, Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4g War Memorial Drive. Marie is one of the few people able to do a favour so graciously as to give the impression that she values the pleas- ure of the person she is helping more highly than she values the time and labor required to help. She is a person endowed with abiding sincerity, the gift of those who possess true peace of mind. VIRGINIA CUSHNER Major: Government. Minor: History. Degree: B.S. Afriifiriefz Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4. Slim, sophisticated Virginia is the ideal career girl. In her own unobtrusive way, she is completely adult. Calm, efticient, independent, she works with mature determination toward her goal . . . a career in law. Portia herself could do no more. TERRY DE MARTINI Major: Chemistry. Minor: Biology. Degree: B.S. Artivilier: Sodality 1, Mimes and Mummers. Ever since the first day Terry entered Fordham she has dis- played a friendly and fun-loving spirit. Even though she was a campus trotter and a jersey commuter, she found time to avidly particpate in all school functions. Her "chic" appear- ance accentuates her vivacious nature. ' VINCENT N. DEVIVO Major: History. Minor: Classics QLatin and Greekj. Degree: B.S. in Education. We can't help but admire the ambition of such a person as Vince. He has already started his graduate work in the Ford- ham School of Arts and Sciences. This plus his cordiality will add new friendships to the many he has made here. 19 BERNICE DOWD Major: Education. Minor: Social Studies. Degree: B.S. in Education. Actirfiliey: E.S.O. We find in Bernice the rare combination of a casual manner and firmness of purpose. We admire the reticence with which she succeeds, and her determination to continue to do so. PATRICK ERICKSON Major: History. Minor: Social Studies. Degree: B.S. Pat's knowledge of politics together with his appreciation of Shakespeare makes an ideal combination. He instigates many interesting conversations and adds to every group discussion by his knowledge and logical approach. ANN ETON Major: History. Minor: Social Studies. Degree: B.S. in Educa- tion. Al'fjl'ffi6.i'C Curved Horn Staiig Grail Staffg War Memorial Drive: Gannon Council: Interracial Clubg Literary Club: His- tory club. Ann has successfully combined the three roles of housewife, mother, and student. She has endeared herself to the class as an energetic leader and untiring scholar. Admiration attests to her unselfish and cooperative class spirit. JOSEPH A. FERRARA Major: Social Studies. Minor: Philosophy. Degree: B.S. Arfi1'itie.f: Sodality lg Debating Society.

Arfizfilierz Sodality 2, 3, 4, Secretary of the Sodalityg Math Club: War Memorial Drive: Student Council Secretary, '48. Betty possesses the ability to be diligent in her work with apparent ease and enjoyment. She has quite rightfully been selected for the responsible position of Secretary of the Stu- dent Council. Wfhatever she does, she does thoroughly and cheerfully. ELIZABETH FLAURAUD Major: Mathematics. Minor: Physics. Degree: B.S. in Edu- cation. Acii1",ftie.v: History Club, Math Club: Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4. Betty is our pleasant paradox. She takes her place in the tra- ditionally masculine field of Mathematics with unassuming graciousness and astonishing proficiency. Her shy, reserved manner, camouflages a lively interest in people. She discusses with facility and intensity, quadratic equations and the "New Look," electronic radiation and Harry Babbit's latest record. Versatility is the sum and substance of Betty's individuality. KENNETH FLETCHER Major: Social Studies. Minor: Philosophy. Degree: B.S. Arlizfitier: Class Officer: Secretary, '36, Treasurer, '37g De- bating Society, Sodality 1. Ken has a mature approach to all he does. Kindness and optimism flow from this person of sterling character. He has a depth of understanding: a clarity of purpose. PAUL FLINT Major: Social Studies. Minor: History. Degree: B.S. in Educa- tion. Arfizfirier: Gannon Council, Sodality 1, 2, 3. This Waslmington commuter was seen very seldom at Fordham this year due to his attendance at Catholic University, but he never seemed to lose track of his friends, nor they of him! Aifable, friendly and sincere, Paul is an excellent student. He can always be relied upon to inject a particularly astute com- ment into a discussion, and to enliven any gathering by his contagious wit. 21 MARGARET FORD Major: Elementary Education. Degree: B.S. in Education. It is as if you found a neat package from a very smart shop, opened it up and there was Margaret. Genial and serene, her temperament is like a shining, smooth-running river that has little turbulence and less hurry. NOREEN GALLAGHER Major: English. Minor: Social Studies.

The gal- lery of those who will, however, not forget themselves, nor the Principles to which they are dedicated by reason of their Catholic education and their form- al assent to the idea of the dignity of the individual.

By October the more talented of the group had already become members of the school organizations. Al Lynch, Bob Redmond, Mickey Scollon and Agnes Donahue joined the Curved Horn Staff. The Thalians' "Pride and Prejudice" featured "Boots" Schwagerl, Ted Abbene, joan Blank and Connie Ferraro. Witli February, came the second section of the '49'ers, the re-election of Ed Hogan as class president and the first large group of returning vets. Sophomore year was filled with important events: the War Memorial Drive, "Dream Wl1irl," the Christmas Dance at Keating and the opening of Meade Memorial Chapel. The Sophs were well represented Served: Carol Saxon, Patricia Leib, Frances Zuerlmen, Rita Connelly. Smnding: Pat I-lanrahan, Anna Marie Kivling, Helen Daly, Rosemary Schmitt, Lydia Dejesus, Margaret Nielson, Elizabeth Cassidy, Aileen Fantino, Marion Talbot, Jeanette Neillson. l 48 W H V YY 77,, , ,, ,H Y AA. l ...-l Seated: Renata Gouthier, Irene Schwagerl, Edward Cook, Sarah Lupinto, Mary Wfysocki, Patricia Galpin.

Betty Cassidy began reorganization of the Glee Club and jim Murphy, Paul Dellaquilla and Pete Rocco headed the committees for the Christmas Dance which was to become an annual event. Blanche Arnold was first on the Dean's List this year. By the end of the semester the Sophomores had established the reputation of "go-gettersf' Even before the beginning of the year, juniors were found prominent in school activities, as Ed Cook was appointed Fordham's representative to the NSA Constitutional Convention at Wisconsin. Our return in September found most of the executive club posts held by juniors. Pete Glickert, Mel Neville and Jeanne Maccia were appointed to fill three of the four CH editorships . . . Pete Cervone was elected History Club president . . . while Betty 49 Cassidy and "Boots" continued presidencies of the Glee Club and Thalians. This was the year when Walt Hassett became the "man of many committees," and the Juniors, showing their serious side revived interest in the Gannon Council and the Philosophy Club when Matt Brady became Gannon Council President and Ed Cook, Class president headed the Philosophy Club. Casting began for the all-school Floor Show and Dance, and the Student Council appointed Pete Glickert head of the Handbook committee. Class talk drifted to grad- uation rings, the Junior l-lop, and the number of "requireds" left to finish and with the end of the junior year come thoughts of a full Senior schedule, a new Grail, practice teaching and graduation.

SOPHOMORES Although assigned a cast of sobriety due to the influx of veterans, our freshman reaction to initiation gave evidence of spirit and hilarity. Orientation proved a boon to acquaintance, a salve after grueling placement tests. Thus fully initiated, We chose officers, Louis Sanman, Jim Hanley, and Martha Cheznick. Confident of Freshman finesse and dreaming of a bulging treasury we planned our first dance to include hundreds of home-made hors-d'oeuvres, catered refreshments and smooth musicg we had assured ourselves of success and the intake surpassed our greatest expectations. The War Memorial Drive evidenced almost entire cooperation for a notable cause. Struggling through exams .and term papers had its reward in marks, vacation and a well-earned Sophomore promotion. Frank Higgins, Lillian de Giglio and Mildred Haipt took up their roles as class officers and ushered in a hectic year.

Our second retreat provided a needed breathing space for retrospection, evaluation and planning. In Sodality, oratorical talents were discovered in joe Tedesco, Carmen Garafolo, Ann Peltier and Ann McAtmany, with Eleanor Gomez-Franco and Rita Murphy supplying the vocal representation. The idea was acclaimed, the plans rushed, and the event a huge, novel success, once the Sophmore Barn Dance became an actuality. Wedding rings, licenses, square dances, hill-billy oflicers, summonses and fines combined to make this affair outstanding in attendance and enjoyment. The big snow of '47 not only wrecked state-wide transportation, but blanketed our campus on the night of the Sophomore Christmas dance, much to the chagrin of the committee, and those who had planned to attend. 52 A necessary trip to New jersey failed to douse the enthusiasm with which we greeted Mr. Collins' invitation for a Sophomore outing. A subsequent downpour heightened the enjoyment of hot weiners and community singing, and despite the weather, 21 good time was had by all. Next year will find us lessened in numbers, but still possessing the feeling of comradeship, which has helped to make our two years at Fordham profitable in studious and companionable achievement.

FRESHMEN The Freshman Class brought to Fordham a stellar collection of High School and War records, not to mention Henry D'Angela, john Belson, Claire Rahilly and Helen Curran, our scholarship students. Soon after we had become acquainted, class oiiicers, jim Murtha, Presidentg Tom Breen, Vice-Presidentg Owen Halpin, Treasurerg and jim Lahey, Secretary, were elected. We will never forget the highlights of our first year at Fordham-Freshman Initiation and the party the Sophomores gave us after we survived it, the trip to the campus on Armistice Day and the first dance sponsored on December 12th. The bright spot of the otherwise dismal football season was the party Lee Buendia gave after the never-to-be-forgotten N.Y.U. game. By the end of the first term a definite class spirit had developed and many Freshmen cheered the Ram Hoop squad through its eleven straight victories. We thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment provided by the "Thalians" and the Glee Club at the Dean's Christmas Party, and sat in hopeful anticipation for the drawing of the winning ticket of the Seniors' Christmas basket. Despite the Petrillo ban, members of the various Speech classes became recording artists during the year, with Mrs. Poland acting as disc-jockey. We actively participated in the junior Council of Debate and the All School Adair held at the Campus Gym on April 17, and we almost ate Mr. Collins out of house and home at his picnic in May. l Now that Freshmanlyear has drawn to a close, we look back with gratification on a year well spent, and look forward eagerly to a provident second year. 54 Fim' raw: Vallarie.

To attain this end, Religion is sought as an essential part of the curriculum. While religion permeates the whole atmosphere of a Catholic Col- lege, the Sodality offers the student an oppor- tunity to put the religion learned in the classroom into practice. All periods of the student's develop- ment are taken care of by the Sodality. The Fresh- men begin with a Soclality indoctrination program where the true objectives of the Sodality are learned, the rules scrutinized and studied. Then rr period of probation follows, during which the students are observed and tested to see if they are worthy to be received as members of the Sodality. The program for the Sophomore and Junior Sodality is planned so that the students receive every opportunity to participate actively in the scheduled meetings. Topics pertinent to morals and religious devotion and practice are the most commonly discussed. The students themselves lead these discussions, reading papers or delivering talks on the topic chosen. Then they are impressed with the idea of Catholic Action and their share 58 and part in this action. The Senior Sodality is held in the Chapel and since Senior Year, of its very nature, is serious and thoughtful, the major portion of the Sodality meeting is devoted to ,f meditation and prayer. The Evening Students, due U to their busy and occupied careers, cannot devote as much time for Sodality as they would like. But J ...A for the little time they can spare they gather on - ig,,.,,',i.qQ,141'1','Q?Q5, Wednesday and Thursday evenings in the Chapel and recite a portion of the Little OEICC of our Lady. Thus, the Sodality cultivates the religious seesscfa, ts. habits of all the students from their Freshman to their Senior years.

STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council of, the School of Education serves to coordinate student interests, and to provide a channel for the How of suggestions from the student body to the faculty. Through this past year under the tutelage of Miss Kathryn I. Scanlon, Moderator, Olive Newton, President, Walter Hassett, Vice-President, and Betty Ferrigan, Secretary, it has functioned effectively toward the attainment of many noteworthy accomplishments. Reviewing the busy 1947-48 semesters, we observe a host of matters having engaged the Council's attention. At the outset the Council approved a full and varied social calendar for the school year. Student problems, relevant to improved spacing of midterm examinations, and requests for courses, were presented to the faculty by a committee of three, consisting of Walter Hassett, KATHRYN SCANI-ON Elinor Andreoli, and George Cobb. M,,,ye,,,,,,,t Consideration was given to the proposal that the School of Education be affiliated with the National Student Association, although final decision was not reached on this matter. Ed Cook and Harry Barletta were appointed interim representatives to the Asso- ciation. As a result of a poll taken from the entire student , body, the Annual All School Affair, sponsored by the Student Council took the form of a musical revue and dance and was held in the Campus Gymnasium. The affair was dedicated to Dean Francis M. Crowley, to honor him during his tenth anniversary at 'Ford- ham. 60 EVENING STUDENT ORGANIZATION The purpose of the Evening Student Organization of the School of Education is two-fold. The group acts as a medium for cooperation between the Morn- ing and Evening session and serves as the coordinat- ing body of all Evening student activities. An executive meeting of the new officers together with Mr. Leo Kearney, Moderator, was held on October 1, 1947. The ofiicers of the year were as follows: President, john Lundyg Vice-President, Doris De Gall, Secretary, Margaret Sniderog Treasurer, Frances Cassey. Early meetings were concerned with promoting a membership drive and compiling an activity calendar for the year. Olive Newton, President of the Student Council, and john Kearny reported to the Evening Students in regard to the Student Council's work for the year. Olive asked the group to nominate two alternates to the Council. Elections were held on November 24, resulting in two new alternates: Lee Painton and Arthur Berger. LEO I. KEARNEY Moderator Following this was the Christmas Party at which contributions were made for Friendship I-louse. On january 5, the finished constitution was accepted with the approval of Father Hooper. Plans were made for the Annual Communion Breakfast to be held in February. Ramon Servito was appointed Chairman and Father Gerard Walsll, SJ., accepted the invitation to speak. Both the Retreat and the Breakfast were the most successful in the history of the organization. First row: Rita Vallard, Frances Casey, john Lundy, Doris DeGall, Margaret Snidero. Second row: Lucy Andreoli, Elinor Andreoli, Lee Painton, Fernand Perreault, Lydia Peracci, Ann Cappelli, Rosemary Dillon. Third row: Bob Keeschan, john Kearney, Charles Hickey, Duke Forrio. 61 The publication of a Yearbook demands much ingenuity, patience and cooperation on the part of those who hold responsible positions on its Staff. The 1948 Grail Staff has not been lacking in any of the above qualities, and it is the wish of the Editor that this page be devoted to the recognition of those who have contributed to mak- ing this book an actuality. We started working together as a Staff back in November with the selection and approval of Morning and Evening Session Associate Editors. Mr. Frank P. Jay was appointed Moderator and we immediately started interviewing printers and photographers. We soon had selected Delma Stu- dios to do the photography work, and the Robert W. Kelly Publishing Co. as our printer and en- graver. While Seniors were making appointments for pictures with june Callow, Walter House was busily mimeographing subscription blanks, pledge and booster slips. With Father Barnett's permis- sion we went on an active selling campaign and made our headquarters at a booth in the lobby. It was over a "bottomless" cup of the BfG's coffee that we decided to conduct a raille and within four days Ann Rossi and Walter House had made and distributed the chance books, Connie FRANK P. JAY Aiademlor GRAII Ferrara's mother had assembled the famous " ket of Cheer With A Good Foundation" Frank Cooke had driven to New jersey brought back the most attractive Christmas ket we had ever seen.

Lee Painton had been conduct- ing interviews in the ollice, and was now assem- bling data. Betty O'Keefe had assigned her write- ups to Morning Session Seniors, and they had started coming in too. Frank Cooke took over the Circulation Department since Walter House had graduated in February, and Ann Rossi was found compiling weekly financial reports for the Mod- erator and Dean. Kay McKeever's living room resembled one big wastepaper basket from which necessity selected the line Cuts herein displayed, and the opera "Parsifal" took on greater signifi- cance for all concerned with the Grail theme. As time ran out and our deadline neared, Lil- lian Lappano was found typing eighty pages of copy in three days. Lee Painton's week-ends were spent in dodging cliches and writing write-ups. june Callow was rushing around identifying faces with names and Ann Rossi was still accepting money for subscriptions, patrons and boosters. Mr. jay's perfunctory visits to the office found him quietly reading copy amidst all this confusion. And so we have come to the end of a year's work, from which has emerged this book, this Grail for the Senior Class of 1948. We who had the responsibility of compiling and editing this book realize its many limitations, but we believe that this book will have a lasting value if it only serves as a reminder of the years we spent together in the School of Education. n n e . .vlxielx la. gm lt I S6 Q9 ls, .n bel I no Sept.

VINICOMBE Edifor The Editorship of the CURVED HORN hnally reverted to the males after a war- time haitus of four years. New posts were created to manage the increasing staff, more features were added, pictures became prevalent, and there was even an experiment with smaller size type. Harry W. Vinicombe, jr. '48 succeeded Lois Conway, present Editor of "The Grail," in the spring of '47, His staff included Peter Glickert, '49, as Managing Editor, Jeanne Maccia, '49, as News Editor, Mel Neville, '49, as Feature Editor, and Kay Meaney, '48, as Business Manager. Lead feature writers were Helen Daly, of the celebrated "Daly Noose," Betty Cas- sidy of "Spotlight Review," Kay McKeever of "Hall JOHN COLLINS of Fame," Lillian DeGiglio, of ulnquiring Reporter" Mgdemm. and Mel Neville, of "Neville Again." During the ' past four years, the class of '48 was particularly ac- tive on the paper. Fourth Estaters among the grad- uates included Lois Conway, a former Editor-in-Chief, Lillian Lappano, who served as Business Manager and Managing Editor, Pat Newman, who was News Editor, Marion Atkinson, who was Feature Editor for a year, Barbara Clark, who wrote "Ed-Lines," Muriel Hanley, who wrote "Vogue's Eye View." A list' of News writers includes Seniors Ed Calabrese, june Callow, Ann Rossi, while Marie Cuomo is a member of the business staff. 65 THE THALIANS The Thalians, the School of Education's Dra- matic Society, under the supervision of its Mod- erator, Dr. George Glasgow, and the direction of its President, Marion Schwagerl, has sought to attain its enviable pre-war status of dramatic production. In 1947 "Angel Street" was chosen for the Spring production which starred Matt Semenza as Mr. Mattinghorn and Renata Gouthier as his wife. This tense, psychological drama of- DR- GEORGE M- GLASGOW fered the participants a formidable challenge F""'1'-3'M"d""""" which they met with true acting ability and thus the first "dramatic" step had been taken. The first part of this year's activity was de- voted to the presentation of two one act plays, "White Iris" and "The Mad Breakfast," the latter of which was presented at the Dean's Chrismas Party. The cast of "White Iris" included Renata Gouthier and Carmen Garofola in the leading roles with Maureen Heanie and Marie Sargent in the supporting cast. The cast of "The Mad Breakfast" included Mary McKenna, Martin Dannon, Imelda Neville, Bob Westheimer and Tom Crowley. The members of the Thalians do all the work involved in play production, which includes directing, building sets and collecting props for the one act plays. In this way they gain practical experience in the technical aspects of stage production after having been thoroughly versed in the theory and art of the drama.

The Gannon Council of Debate, founded in 1938 and reorganized after the war under the direction of Miss Audrey O,Brien, Faculty Moderator, is the official Debating Society of the School of Education. The total membership active in the work of the club during the past year numbered fifty-three, of these, ten have participated in formal de- bates with other colleges in the City. Meetings of the Gannon Council of Debate are held weekly, and each meeting is marked by lively activity on the part of the debaters. The schedule to which the Gannon Council adheres calls for frequent intra-club debates on topics of current interest. Mem- bers taking part in these informal debates held before the club, receive private, con- structive criticism given by the moderator. Favorable demonstrations of ability at these private meetings constitute eligibility for intercollegiate debating, which is considered to be the most interesting part of the club's program. Inter-collegiate debates take place according to a pre-arranged schedule set up by the club ofhcers. In the two semesters just completed, the Gannon Council has held debates on the national topic designated for college debating this year, "Resolved- That A Federal World Government Should Be Established." Formal debates on this topic were held with the following, colleges: Brooklyn College, College of the City of New York, Hunter M,,,jem,,,,- College, Queens College and Fordham College of Arts and Sciences. AUDREY O'BRIEN In fostering the art of debating and encouraging student participation therein, the Gannon Council of Debate strives to broaden the educational value of the curriculum by providing an opportunity for stud- ents to apply principles learned in the classroom to world problems, before critcal judges and audiences. Further, the Gannon Council is the medium whereby good public speaking habits may be perfected and a degree of eloquence achievedg where good traits of mental discipline may be acquired and where real fun may be had in the process. 67 Strvzding: Denise Ryan, Vincent Mayernik, Barbara Hickey.

WHITE Mademlor SCIENCE CLUB The Centurian Science Club was organized in 1941 to permit students to indulge their interests in science and photography. Membership in the Club is not restricted to those majoring in Science but is also open to those who have made a hobby of science and photography or who desire to increase their knowledge of scientific phenomena. The program carried out at club meetings varies from demonstrations of scientific and photographic principles and techniques, to reports by club members or guest speakers, followed by open discussions on selected topics. The reports given by club members this year included the following topics: Enlarging Photographs, Moving Picture Pro- jection, Color Photography, The Chemistry of Photography, Blood Types and Trans- fusions, Heredity, and the Chemistry of Photography. The club has an enlarging machine at its disposal which is used frequently at meetings for the purpose of demonstration. The cl , , wi r. Henry F.

A special meeting was held in Shealy Hall on December 15th at which time, guest speakers Francis J. Bierne and Frank A. Bonauto lectured on the subject, "The Actuarial Field as a Careerf' At the next meeting, Edward Batho discussed "A New Set of Postulates for the d t e- Euclidian Geometry." He explained how a new type of Geometry which oes no pr suppose courses in arithmetic and algebra can be built up on the basis of these postulates. Another highlight of the year's discussions was Peggy Smith's talk on the subject: "The Mathematical Basis of the Game of Nimf' At other meetings the members were concerned with a discussion of "Determinants" ' t nd their b ' John Laffan, john Kearney, and Mr. Lynch.

Contemporary dithculties stem ultimately from the roots nurtured by false tenets of various philosophies. Aware of these dilliculties, bent on answering them, a group of our present juniors determined to form a club, the atmosphere of which should be conducive for the analysis of contemporary DANIEL L SULLIVAN problems. A year's study of Philosophy had created a new ,1,f0de,.,.,,,,,. image for them, one accentuating the significance of the place philosophy holds in the contemporary scene, and provided the impetus necessary for the formation of the Philosophy Club. Late last Spring, Father Hassett conducted the organiza- tional meeting of the club. Plans restricted future activity to discussion of contemporary problems in the light of Scholas- tic Philosophy. Father Hassett and Mr. Sullivan became Co- Moderators, and Ed Cook was elected President. Last Fall, the first term of organized activity, included a discussion of Communism at every meeting but two. For one meeting Mr. Sullivan induced a Mr. Ludlow to speak on "Pacif1sm." For another Fr. Hassett invited Fr. Millar, from the campus to speak on the topic, "Philosophic Foundations of the Constitution." Those of us fortunate enough to have heard this lecture will not soon forget the intellectual acumen implicit in so minutely detailed an esposition. This term, three subjects were treated: Philosophy in Pol- itics, in Economics and in Psycho-Analysis. A guest speaker addressed the group on each of the topics discussed, main- taining a continuity of enthusiasm and assuring the club of a first year of successful tenure. ' 71- INTERRACIAL CLUB Although the Interracial Club of the School of Education was not functioning dur- ing the war years, it was reorganized in September, 1947, under the guidance of Mr. Daniel j. Sullivan, Moderator. For the sake of convenience, a plan was proposed where- by meetings could be held at 10:00 P.M., after class and it was agreed that the group would meet at this time on the first and third Tuesday of every month. The first meeting was attended by approximately twenty students. Temporary oiii- cers were set up as follows: President, Lee Paintong Vice-President, Arnold Boyceg Sec- retary, Ector Aricog Treasurer, Eveline Alarie. Although the first speaker restricted his talk to the group, members expressed that it was not only their desire, but their responsibility to allow the entire school to benefit by hearing outside speakers. Through the efforts of Mr. Sullivan, Mr. Andrew Simmons was contacted and agreed to deliver a talk on the topic: "The Plight of the Negro in Educationi' sometime in February. Witli the beginning of the next semester, a new group of officers was elected as follows: President, Terrence Scantlebury: Vice-President, Margaret Reillyg Secretary, Dorothy McGuireg Treasurer, Josephine Montelbano. Mr. Simmons delivered his speech in Shealy Hall on February 11th. Recent meet- ings have been concerned with two main topics. A committee volunteered to investigate the problem of segregation in the Armed Guard and to consider the influence of a petition upon the proper authorities. The second project was an attempt to procure time on K'WFU" for a dramatic presentation of the various aspects of interracial problems. A new program is being formulated for next year and membership has almost doubled. Sealed: M. O'Carroll, Dorothy Maguire fSec. '48J, Margaret Riley fVice-Pres. '48J, Terence Scantlebury fPres.

WILLIAM TRAHEY Director GLEE CLUB Twice each week, the Glee Club convenes in Shealy Hall to rehearse, and even the elevator operators stop to listen. This energetic group includes many talented students who evidence a real interest in music and who Wish to apply their abilities to the funda- mentals of group singing. Under the Direction of Mr. William Trehy, this year's pro- gram has included performances at school functions as well as extra-scholastic musicales. The Christmas season proved to be a busy one for the club. Performances were given at the Dean's Christmas Party, at St. Patriclds Home for the Aged, and in the Grand Central Terminal. On March 19th the club competed in the National Students Association's contest at Hunter College. As we went to press, the club notified us that they planned to participate in the All School Affair and in Graduation Exercises. The time spent at Glee Club meetings is both pleasurable and instructive which effects How directly from the enthusiasm and spontaneity of the oflicers and director. Betty Cassidy the President, has given much of her time and talent to insure the success of the club. She has been ably assisted by Maxine Orsenigo, Vice-President and Al Lynch, Director of Publicity. Much of the club's progress has been due to Fr. Hooper's interest and concern for the group. 73 HISTORY CLUB The History Club, under the direction of Mr. Law- rence Mannion, Moderator, began its activities for the 19117-48 school year with a strong core of Senior members. The oiticers of the club-President, Vice- President and Secretary, were john Roche, Larry O'Neil1 and Arlene Robinson respectively. The club's program was carried out by means of g talks on current national and international problems by members and guest speakers. An attempt was made to LAVVRENCE LIANNION Modvmml achieve a balance between timely national and inter- . national topics. Among the subjects of current domestic interest discussed were Proportional Repre- sentation and the House Un-American Activities Committee. At the meeting preceeding Election Day, Ann McAtamney and Peter Cervone analyzed the advantages and weak- nesses of proportional representation as a system for New York City. At the following meeting Larry O'Neill and joan Smith concerned themselves with the question: "Was the Un-American Activities Committee Un-American?" The European Recovery Program and the partition of Germany were the subjects of current international importance which dominated the attention of the club's members. Mary McKenna and Harold Barletta led the inquiry into Marshal1's plan for European rehabilitation. For the last two meetings of the Fall term the club focused its attention upon the United States' policy with regard to Germany. In addition to these talks and discussions, the club sponsored a tour of the New York Stock Exchange and also published a monthly calendar listing lectures, films and exhibits in New York City of interest to Social Studies students. Seated: Ethel McGovern, Ellen Sause, Lornia Vonovich, Arlene Robinson, joan Smith, Virginia Cushner, Alicia Murtha.

Mrs. Lylian A. Poland was chosen to be the Club's Moderator and it was decided that the members would meet on Wednesday evenings from six- thirty to eight at the Campus Gymnasium Pool. This year the club had as lecturer and occasional in- C if if C i structor, the director of the Ballet Corps at Flushing MRS' U'f,QQjf,,jj5rPOLAND Meadow's Aquacade. The members received professional coaching on the art of staging aquacades and water ballets. During the school year several meets were held, participation in which was restricted to club members. These competitive events featured front crawl, back crawl, water acro- batics, water ballet and diving. Membership in the club is limited to thirty-five and in order to insure the safety of all concerned, a lifeguard is provided for every ten swimmers. Each year a scout from Flushing Meadows Aquacade comes to choose girls who qualify for professional swimming. Kneeling: Cummerford, Bartenburger, McCann, Del Torto, Waldton, Keating.
