The 1947 Edition of DOMESDAY BGOKE T ublifhed by the Senior Class of GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY + +i- + -f-+ Washington, D.C. -f-t + tt-h FOREWORD HE theme of this first post-war edition of Ye Domesday Booke was spontaneously prompted by the Tercentennary of the North American Martyrs : and the dedication was affectionately inspired by the supreme sacrifice of Georgetown ' s heroic war dead. Though the lives of these two valiant groups were snuffed out on sacrificial altars widely separated in time and space, their hearts were consumed with a common love of mankind, inherited of God, and rooted in eternity. In this sense, all were martyrs, for all laid down their lives, that others might live — some in time upon earth, some for eternity with God. In the soil of America, thus consecrated with the blood of Isaac Jogues and his companions, was sown the seed, whence sprang the enduring faith of millions: in the soil of th is and other lands, hallowed with the blood of our honored war dead, God grant that the seed sown for the permanent peace of the world may yet ripen unto fruition. CHARLES J. FOLEY, S.J. Moderator fittingly commemorate their selfless service. At this school they prepared themselves for the fullness of life, its labors and rewards. But, firm in the faith that there are spiritual values greater than life itself, they gave their utmost to the nation ' s cause. Who they were, is here re- membered; what they accomplished, is enshrined in our hearts. Stout in battle, heroic in death, their memory shall be an abiding inspiration, strengthening us in high resolve that the ideals for which they died shall live eternally. With all who knew them and served with them, I salute my com- rades-in-arms, the hero dead of Georgetown University. ' Chief of Staff United States Army ' EDWARD J. AGNEW, COL. ' 43 ANTHONY M.

THE MARTYRS of North Amen ' ca rv? =i-C l i reater love than this no man hath, than that a man lay down his life for his friend. " Group of pilgrims attending Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament in the ravine at the National Shrine of the North American Martyrs, Auriesville, N.Y. In some undiscovered spot of this hallowed ground, lie the sacred remains of Rene Goupil, buried there by Isaac Jogues, in 1643. Jogues himself and John de Lalande were also martyred on this site, and their bodies hurled into the Mohawk River. The other five martyrs were put to death, near Midland, Ontario. Wnz tora of the Martgrs Uunncth i:iius O our generation, perhaps more than to any other, the primary aspect of life is one of conflict. We have matured to enter a world of war, and have known useless, horrible destruction, such as has never before occurred. We have seen the safety of our vast, arduously constructed civilization imperiled by the same forces which brought it into being. These are the forces of strife, of conflict ; and it is truly they that mold the life of humanity. History and personal experience compel us to see in man ' s existence a ceaseless struggle to learn, to love, to perfect, to be happy; a struggle against the very elements, against illness, both spiritual and physical, against hate, against ambition, treachery and deception. Good or evil, right or wrong, all are acquired or avoided only by some type of com- bat. The warrior ' s reward from the world is honor. To those who give their lives for others, as have one hundred and seventy-one sons of Georgetown, we offer special love and grati- tude. Here we shall speak of another, an even greater sacrifice. We shall speak of eight men who died, not that men might live on earth, but that they might gain the eternal, perfect life with God. What sort of world was it, the world of three hundred years ago, that produced these giants of faith? The Thirty Years ' War shook Europe and produced such leaders as Tilly, Wallenstein, Gustavus Adolphus and Turenne. It was the age of literary genius. Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Lord Bacon, Moliere, Corneille and Racine produced works that have en- riched our culture immeasurably. Science was coming into its birthright ; Galileo, Torrecelli, Napier, Kircher, Huygens, Kepler, and count- less others were laying the foundations of our modem scientific civilization. Philosophers like Descartes, Spinoza, Locke and Pascal, whose theories still influence and will continue to influence the thought and conduct of multi- tudes, were born then. Art flourished under such masters as Rembrandt, Rubens, Murillo, Velasquez and Bernini. Civilization had broken its leash, and was moving forward with great bounds. To keep up with these advances, education became more widespread, and hundreds of new schools appeared. In France, the number of Jesuit Colleges alone increased from twenty to seventy in the first half of the seventeenth century. The influence of the Jesuit educa- tional system was such, that Jesuit colleges be- came the popular schools of their time. For two centuries, they educated men whose in- fluence extended to all phases of life — Buffon, Moliere, Descartes, Bossuet, Montesquieu, Francis de Sales, all were graduates of Jesuit institutions. Exploration was at its height. The English, French and Dutch settled in America and by 1634 colonies had been established in seven of what are now the United States. The missionary spirit was aroused; and the Society of Jesus sent hundreds to do the work of Christ in all parts of the world. Peter Cla- ver, Spinola, Andrada and many more Jesuits were martyred in their zeal to further the domain of Christianity. To the ranks of these elect were called six Jesuit priests, Isaac Jogues, Jean de Brebeuf, Noel Chabanel, An- toine Daniel, Charles Gamier, Gabriel Lale- mant, and their two lay companions, Rene Goupil and Jean de Lalande, All were French- men, and all died for Christ among the In- dians of North America. Isaac Jogues was the first of the priests to be martyred. He was born in Orleans, Jan- uary 10, 1607. It seems almost prophetic that, destined as he was for sacrifice, he should be named Isaac. He was educated at the Jesuit college in Orleans, finished at seventeen, and became a Jesuit novice at Rouen. He studied philosophy for three years at the royal college of La Fleche and after receiving the usual training of a Jesuit, he was ordained, early in 1636. While at La Fleche, Jogues first read of the American missions in an account by Father Masse, a returned missionary. The deeds of his missionary brothers particularly impressed him. In fact, the death of Blessed Charles Spinola in Japan so affected him, that he carried with him a picture of Spinola ' s martyr- dom. From that time on, he prayed constantly to merit a martyr ' s death. At Rouen, where Jogues taught during his regency, he met Fathers Brebeuf, Lalemant and Masse. From them he heard of hardships, tortures, privations, treachery. Far from being discouraged, he became determined to work as a missionary in North America. He even requested permission to stop the study of theology (on the pretext of lack of ability); and be sent to the missions as a lay brother. He had not been ordained two months, when his prayers were answered; and on May 2, 1636, he set sail from Dieppe, in the company of Charles Gamier. The oldest of the group, and the only one to reach the age of fifty was Jean de Brebeuf. He was born in Normandy at Conde-sur-Vire, the son of noble parents. Little is known of him before he entered the Jesuit novitiate at Rouen, when he was twenty-four. He had studied the humanities, moral theology and philosophy, each for two years before he be- came a novice. He studied theology sufficiently to qualify for ordination in six years ; and cele- brated his first Mass on April 4, 1623. In 1625, ! he arrived in Quebec to begin his missionary activity. Bom February 2, 1613, in southern France, Noel Chabanel was the youngest of all the missionaries. When seventeen, he became a Jesuit; and followed the usual course toward ordination. He reached Canada in August, 1643. Antoine Daniel was born at Dieppe on May 27, 1601. He was studying law, when he de- cided to become a Jesuit, entering the novi- tiate at Rouen in 1621. After his ordination in 1631, he taught the humanities at the college of Eu, then embarked for New France in 1632. Charles Gamier was bo m of a wealthy Parisian family on May 25, 1605. He was ed- ucated at Clermont, one of the outstanding colleges of France. He became a Jesuit at nineteen; and after the prescribed training courses, he taught at Eu from 1629 to 1632. Upon his ordination in 1635, he was assigned to the Canada mission, and sailed with Jogues. Gabriel Lalemant was the last of the mar- tyrs to enter the American mission field. Like Gamier, he was a Parisian, bom October 10, 1610. He had two uncles, who were Canadian missionaries; and when he pronounced his vows as a Jesuit in 1632, he added a fourth to work among the Indians. Fourteen years later, after study and teaching, he began the fullfillment of that vow, when he was sent to Canada. Almost nothing is known of the lives of the two laymen, Rene Goupil and Jean de Lalande. Goupil was born at A njers in 1607. He wanted to become a Jesuit, and actually entered the novitiate; but his health could not bear the rigorous life, and he was forced to resign. He studied surgery; and at length made his way to Canada where he became a donne (one who devotes his life to a cause); and offered his aid to the missionaries. De Lalande was born at Dieppe. He, too, came at length to Canada as a donne. Both men died as Jogues " companions. Such were the lives of those eight men, before they entered the missions. The years that they spent among the Indians are a record of heroism and sacrifice. Brebeuf arrived in Canada in 1625. His first four years were spent in learning the Indian language, and making vain attempts to work among the Hurons; but there were not yet enough missionaries in the field and he met with little success. In 1629, the English seized control of Canada ; and all French mis- sionaries were forced to leave. Brebeuf re- turned to Rouen. The English held Canada for only three years and then returned the colony to the French. Soon missionaries began to return to the scene of their endeavor; and to begin anew on the scanty foundations previously laid. In 1632, Father Antoine Daniel arrived in Canada ; and the following summer Brebeuf returned to begin a work which ended only with his death. The Hurons flocked to Quebec for their annual market, haggling over mer- chandise and indulging in feasts which were practically orgies. They wished to take Bre- beuf, Daniel and another priest back to their country with them; but at the last minute, an Ottawa, with a grudge against the French, frightened the Hurons into refusing to take the priests. They had to wait another year, spending their time among the Indians around Quebec. It was heart-breaking to them, long- ing as they did to bring souls into the faith, to be continually set back by malice and treachery. The Iroquois were mak- ing war on the Hurons ; few of the latter could find time to make the trip to Quebec the following year. The three priests met those who did come; and begged to be taken. When the Indians agreed, the Fathers were so eager to leave that Daniel and Davost actually left all their belongings behind, except for vestments and sacred ves- sels. The journey was long and rough, and the continual treachery of the Indians added greatly to the difficulties. They stole the priests ' belongings, forced them to cast over- board the few books that they had; and fre- quently abandoned the " Black-robes " to shift for themselves. This treatment served only to intensify their resolve to devote their lives to the conversion of these heathens. At last they reached Huronia ; and set about building their mission. By dint of bribery, they persuaded the Indians to build them a cabin, which became the center of their ac- tivity. They met with meager success in in- structing the adults, making few converts. The children, however, were their greatest hope. They took readily to instruction; and grew fond of the priests, who became teachers, playmates and physicians. In their instruction, they adopted a form of catechesis, much like that used by the Apostles. Prayers and for- mulas of faith were translated into Huron, usually in some sort of verse or couplet. These the priests repeated until the savages learned them; then they would repeat part and have the Indians give the responses. When they preached sermons, the priests would first recapitulate what they had said before, and then introduce new material. They soon found that it did little good to speak of virtue and grace. Rather they must emphasize the ideas of hell, of justice and of sin. This type of castigation had more reality for the Indians whose original gods were the Oki or evil spirits. It was hopeless to attempt to produce any true virtue in the vicious atmosphere of a Huron vil- lage, so Brebeuf managed to persuade a few of the Indians to permit their children to be taken to Que- bec to be educated. Daniel and the other priest, Davost, set out for Quebec with these children, and left Bre- beuf alone. While waiting for the return of his companions, Brebeuf wrote his famous instructions for those who were to come to the Huron mission. It was an eloquent appeal for volunteers, and an exposition of a lifeof utmost hardship. Before his letter reached France, new recruits were to arrive. In April, 1636, Jogues and Gamier landed in Quebec. We can see in Jogues the deep-seated mis- sionary spirit from a letter written to his mother upon his arrival in New France. " I do not know what it is to enter paradise ; but this I know, that it is difficult to experience in this world a joy more excessive and over- flowing than I felt on my setting foot in New France, and celebrating my first Mass here on the day of the Visitation. I assure you, it was indeed a day of the visitation of the good- ness of Our Lord and Our Lady. I felt as if 16 it were Christmas Day for me, and that I was to be born again to a new life, and a life in God. " Father Brebeuf would find in Isaac Jogues the very man to assume the burden of a missionary. Jogues did not go among the Hurons for a while, so Father Brebeuf remained alone. About August 20th, Father Daniel arrived with the young Indians he was bringing to the seminary. Daniel ' s Indian guides requested that a priest accompany them home and Jogues was selected. When they arrived, an epidemic was raging in the village and Jogues was the first victim among the missionaries. Then Gamier (who had left Quebec for the mission just before Daniel arrived) and three others became ill. For awhile, Jogues was close to death. As a desperate remedy, he resorted to bleeding himself; and after acting successfully as his own surgeon, he soon recovered. The others re- turned to health moreslowly. They all entered vigor- ously into the life of the mission, learning the lan- guage, instructing, baptizing the dying. Their mission was called St. Joseph ; and they also established a mission at Ossossane. The missionaries traveled constantly between these two missions; and to all the villages they could possibly reach where there was no mission. They worked with patience and kindness, although often ex- hausted by travel and lack of food. Conversions among the adults continued to be slow; but hundreds were baptized, when dying of the plague. Gradually the Indians began to grasp the idea that the priests offered the hope of eternal salvation after death ; and there was hardly a village that did not re- quest a visit. By 1639 the epidemic had abated ; and the situation became more settled. With their typical fickleness, the Indians for- got the teachings of the priests; and began to mutter against them, blaming them for the plague. Because of their deep-seated belief in sorcery, they suspected the priests ' rosaries, crucifixes, breviaries and other accoutrements of having an evil spirit. Life at St. Joseph became impossible for the missionaries and they took up permanent residence at Ossossane. This mission had been instituted in 1636; and finally, in 1639, after three years of work by five men, the first adult in good health to be converted was baptized. The ceremony was solemn and the Hurons, with their love of pomp, flocked to see it. The enemies of the priests made this the occasion for renewed attacks. Despite Bre- beuf ' s attempts to reason with them, the In- dians were confirmed in their suspicion, that the missionaries were sorcerers ; and in August, a council of the chiefs was held, ostensibly to discuss tribal affairs, but actually to decide the fate of the priests. The affair dragged on until finally, in Oc- tober, the priests were con- demned to death. At this point Brebeuf wrote a state- ment of incomparable hero- ism ; all those at the mission signed it. The following ex- cerpt indicates the serenity with which they awaited death. " Be this as it may, I will tell you that all our Fathers await the outcome of this affair with great calm- ness and contentment of mind. And for myself, I can say to your rever- ence, with all sincerity, that I have not yet the least apprehension of death for such a cause. But we are all sorry for this — that these poor barbarians through their own malice, are clos- ing the door to the Gospel and to grace . . . If God grant me the grace to go to heaven, I will pray to Him for them, the poor Hurons. " This was their attitude toward those at whose hands they expected barbarous tortures. The outcome was almost miraculous. The night that he was to die, Brebeuf invited all to a farewell banquet. It was a custom of the Indians to feast their condemned victims. He spoke to them, not of himself, but of life after death. They left the cabin downcast and dis- mayed. The missionaries were left in peace; Brebeuf was adopted by the tribe and made a captain. In 1638 a new mission called St. Joseph II had been established at Teanaustaye, with Brebeuf in charge. Jogues was employed at this mission during the above crisis. From that time on, the missionaries ' progress was heartening ; and the number of converts grew steadily. It was decided that a permanent central mis- sion should be established. This had become necessary, because the Indians were envious, if the priests identified themselves with any particular village. The new headquarters was accordingly established about eight miles from Ossossane and twelve miles from Ste. Joseph 1 1 . It was named Ste. Marie; and was the central bureau for about fifteen priests and laymen. With the decided change for the better, it was possible to extend the field of activity. In 1640 Jogues and Garnier started on a spe- cial mission to the Petun, or " Tobacco ' ' Indians. It was winter; the priests had to travel on snowshoes and they were deserted by their guides. When they arrived, they found that their reputation for sorcery had preceded them; and they were ignored. None of the villages would receive them. The expedition was a failure; and the two priests returned to Ste. Marie. Rebuffs such as this served only to double the enthusiasm of the missionaries. Jogues traveled two hundred and fifty miles to visit the Ojibways. He was greeted by two thousand of them, who begged him to stay with them. All he could do was to make know n the Faith and to prepare the ground for his successors. It was on this journey that he and his companion Raymbault discovered Lake Superior. Brebeuf made an expedition to the Neuters on the shores of Lake Erie. He met with the same ill success as had Jogues and Garnier among the Petuns. He was often threatened with death. While in this hostile country, Brebeuf had a vision of what was to happen to the Huron mission. It came to him in the form of a giant cross, rising from the heart of the Iroquois country, and its arms over- shadowing Huronia. " The cross was large enough to bear all the missionaries in Huronia. " Huronia was in sore straits. Harvests had been poor; and the plague was rampant again. Once more the Hurons began to agitate against the Black-robes, and to attribute their dire condition to sorcery. They clung more fiercely to their superstitions and indulged in the worst forms of vice. All too soon the fullfillment of Brebeuf ' s vision was to begin. Lack of supplies made a »W ij iti i i Z oooc Jjh.x.

It was a journey involving extreme danger. The Iro- quois were on the warpath and the route lay between their villages and those of the Hurons. The trip was begun in early June and they arrived safely in mid-July. For the time, at least, they were to be spared. After spending two weeks in Quebec, Jogues and some forty persons, including four Frenchmen, started to return on August 1 . One of the Frenchmen was Rene Goupil, the donne. He had made the journey to New France, determined to work for the missions. When he heard of Father Jogues ' presence in Quebec, he went to him and asked to be taken to work among the Hurons. Father Vimont, the Superior of New France, recom- mended him highly ; and Jogues accepted his offer. Scarcely a day out, they were ambushed and taken captive by the Iroquois. What followed can only be described by the principal victim, Father Jogues. " . . . assailing me with their fists and knotty sticks, they left me half dead on the ground; and, a little later, they also tore off my nails, and bit with their teeth my two forefingers, causing me incred- ible pain. They did the same thing to Rene Goupil. " Afterwards they were taken to a village as captives. This is a description, in part, of what happened to them in that village. " . . . our wounds, not healed, had putrefied, so that the worms dropped from them ... at the gate of the village an Indian drew a hatchet and struck Rene ' s head with it. He fell, half dead; but remembered, according to the agreement made between us, to invoke the most Holy Name of Jesus ... I gave the last abolution to my dear companion, who still breathed; but whose life the barbarian finally took away with two more blows. " Jogues tells how the Indians dragged Rene ' s body through the village and threw it into the river; how he spent hours in the icy water attempting to find the corpse, in spite of the savages " threats to kill him for so doing. It was not until the following Spring that he found the martyr ' s bones; and reverently buried them. In these words Jogues pays tri- bute to his young companion, the first of the eight to die: " He was a man of unusual simplicity and innocence of life, of invincible patience and very conformable to the Divine Will. " Jogues was made a slave of one of the Mo- hawk families, and for more than a year he lived as a drudge, his life in constant danger. At last he escaped with the aid of the Dutch and went to France. When he arrived in Paris to report to his provincial, he was so much in demand, that he longed to escape and return to his mission. The queen, Anne of Austria, insisted on seeing him, and hearing his story. From the Pope he received a special permis- sion to offer the Holy Sacrifice with his muti- lated hands. His will prevailed; and in 1644 he set sail for Canada once more. When he arrived, he was sent to Montreal. He bided his time, waiting until he could return to Huronia, working meanwhile among the savages around Montreal. Unexpectedly, the Iroquois sent an embassy to sue for peace. They arrived on July 5, 1644; and after lengthy proceedings peace was concluded in May, 1646. Jogues was selected to head a French mis- sion, which was to meet the Iroquois chiefs at Ossernon, their principal village. The dan- gerous mission proved successful ; and Jogues returned to Quebec in safety after two months. But, determined to return to the Mohawks as a missionary, he had left behind a box of pious articles at Ossernon. When he received the permission of his superiors to return to the Iroquois, he tried to find a companion. " It is essential that he, who accompanies me, must be virtuous, docile to direction, courageous, one who will suffer any- thing for Christ. " In the young donne Jean de Lalande, he found the exact counterpart of his description. On the 24th of September, they set out together with high hopes for their work among the Mohawks. The box which Jogues had left behind was the cause of his death. The Indians blamed it for bringing on an epidemic and a poor har- vest. When they heard that Jogues was re- turning to their villages, they waylaid him two days before his arrival there, stripped and ill-treated him and Lalande, and dragged them to a village as prisoners. On the eight- eenth of October, Jogues was invited to a meal. As he entered the cabin, he was treacherously tomahawked. His head was cut off, and set upon a pole facing the route he had traveled. The next day, his young companion was mur- dered in the same fashion; and their bodies were thrown into the river. Thus the missions lost one of their greatest members; and two souls, of unconquered faith and courage, were united with God. The Hurons had begun to embrace the faith in large numbers after Jogues left; and the number of missionaries among them in- creased to twenty-one. Among these was Father Antoine Daniel who had returned in 1639, after his seminary failed, because the parents could not bear to be separated from their children. There was an extraordinary growth, not only in the number of converts, but in the actual virtue of the people. All the reports of the time were encouraging. In fact, the Hurons were gradually becoming Catho- lics; and in time, they might all, if peace prevailed, have been converted. But the Iro- quois renewed their attacks with increased ferocity, and destroyed whole vi llages instead of merely ambushing stray bands. On July 4, 1648, they appeared at St. Joseph II, just as Father Daniel was finishing Mass. The people were in an agony of terror. Father Daniel hastily baptized and absolved those, who desired it, and as the Iroquois, who had heard that there were many persons con- gregated in the church, approached, he said, " Flee, my brothers, and bear with you your Faith even to the last sigh. As for me, I must face death here, as long as I shall see here any soul to be gained for heaven; and dying here to save you, my life is no longer anything to me; we shall see one another again in heaven. " Then he calmly strode out to meet the enemy who stopped in surprise to see a lone man coming toward them. They surrounded him and pierced him with arrows. He received a mortal wound from a gun; and fell to the ground, pronouncing the name of Jesus. Within a year, on March 16, 1649, the Iro- quois attacked a village at which Brebeuf and Lalemant were stationed. They perpe- trated the most hideous tortures on the inhabi- tants and the two missionaries. The priests were beaten with sticks, necklaces of red-hot hatchets were placed about their necks, and flaming bark was tied to their bodies, Insen- sible to his pain, Father Brebeuf preached to his tormentors, whereupon they cut off his nose and lips. Three times boiling water was poured on the two priests in mockery of bap- tism. Strips of flesh were cut from their bodies, roasted and eaten before their eyes. Father Brebeuf, a man of tremendous physique, died after four hours of this torture, but for seven- teen hours the delicate Father Lalemant suf- fered these atrocities, before he gave up his soul to God. The bodies of the martyrs were recovered by their friends the next day, and tenderly buried. The Iroquois decimated the Hurons. They even penetrated into the " Tobacco " nation. There were two missions here. At one of them, St. Jean, were stationed Father Charles Gar- nier and Father Noel Chabanel. On December 7, 1649, the Iroquois descended on the village. Father Garnier was there alone, as Father Chabanel had left that very morning on the order of the superior, who thought it needless to expose two men to danger. The Indians set fire to the huts ; and began to kill all those whom they deemed unable to keep up with them in their flight, as they feared the return of the village ' s warriors. As Father Garnier hastened about giving absolution to the Christians and baptizing all who were not yet dead, he was shot twice and twice struck on either side of the head with a tomahawk. The next day, some Christian Hurons found his body, and carefully buried it. Meanwhile, Father Chabanel was continu- ing his journey. After leaving St. Jean he had passed through the other mission and was some eighteen miles past it, in the thick of a forest, when night fell. They camped in the snow ; and his Indian companions slept ; but for some reason, probably apprehension, Chab- anel remained awake. About midnight, he heard strange, confused sounds of voices. It was the Iroquois, retreating with their pris- oners and booty, singing their war songs. Chabanel awakened his companions, who fled immediately. He tried to follow; but could not keep pace with the savages, who returned to the mission and related what had happened. They said that Chabanel had taken an oppo- site direction from them, in order to reach Isle St. Joseph. For some time, h is brother priests were ignorant of what had befallen him; but at last an apostate Huron confessed to having murdered him, and thrown his body into the river. He declared that he had killed Chabanel out of hatred for the Faith, which had brought ruin to the Hurons. The last of the martyrs had died at the hands of one he sought to help. Words mean little when they attempt to describe the heroic virtue which kindled in the souls of these men. The tongues of angels would be needed to speak adequately of them. We can but praise, in our poor, weak fashion. Before us, we can ever behold the lives of eight men, eight warriors, victorious in the battle of life, champions of the cause of Christ.

Architecturally world-famous, it was erected, while the Reverend Patrick J. Healy, S.J., was President. The School of Foreign Service, the Riggs Memorial Library and the President ' s Office are all part of its attractive interior. I OPLEY HALL, named after a distinguished Jesuit priest of the colonial era, was erected in 1930. Fashioned along chaste lines in impressive collegiate Gothic, the upper floors serve as an attractive Junior-Senior dormitory. On the first floor are a chapel, simple but im- posing with its oak-beamed ceiling, and a spacious lounge, paneled in oak. A 27 EARING the names of two pioneer Jesuits of the seventeenth century, the White-Gravenor Building was erected in 1934. It is one of the most modem and best equipped science and lecture units gracing any college campus. The structure, along with Copley Hall and the Medical-Dental Building, will perpetuate the name of the Reverend William Coleman Nevils, S.J., during whose tenure of office all were erected. 28 N addition to being centrally located in the red brick quad, Dahlgren Chapel is the focal point of student life at Georgetown. It was the gift of the late Lady Decies, whose remains, together with those of her husband, John Dahlgren, and their young son, rest in the crypt beneath the main altar. 29 HE imposing figure of John Carroll, first Archbishop of Baltimore and founder of George- town College, greets every returning alumnus and every chance visitor, who passes through the entrance gates of the University campus.

He became a surgeon, and later a donne, or missionary helper. Before his death, Father Jogues, S.J ., in the name of his Provincial, readmitted Goupil into the Society of Jesus as a Lay Brother. He was tomahawked on September 29, 1642, for guiding the tiny hand of an Indian child to the forehead and breast and shoulders in the sign of the cross. Writing of this in 1646, Father Jerome Lalemant, S.J., said — " The Frenchman, who was slain at the feet of Jogues, lost his life for having expressed the sign of our creed on some little Iroquois children, which so greatly offended their parents, that they, imagining there might be some spell in this action, made of it at once a crime and a martyrdom. " Goupil ' s sacred remains were buried by Father Jogues, and lie somewhere in the ravine at the National Shrine of the North American Martyrs, Auriesville, N.Y. 35 1 il i jFacultg and administration « 36 1 I ADMINISTRATION i VERY RE EREND LAWRENCE C.

" —From Fr. Jogues " last letter to his Superior 69 FATHER ISAAC JOGUBS S.J. X 6 4 6 ORN at Orleans, France, on January 10, 1607, Jogues became a Jesuit, and was ordained in 1637. Apostle among the American Indians, he was likewise a pioneer explorer, being the first to plant the cross as far west as Sault Ste. Marie. He also discovered and named the Lake of the Blessed Sacrament, now Lake George. For six years, he labored among the Huron Indians; and was several times tortured by the warring Mohawks. He was beaten with rods, ran the gauntlet, stretched on his back and tied to stakes with arms and legs widely distended while burning coals were thrown upon his naked body. His arms were tied with thongs to a crosspole, and his body allowed to dangle in mid-air. The thumb and index finger of one hand were amputated, and those of the other hand so badly mutilated, that he could not say mass canonically. Pope Urban VIII granted a dispensation with the touching words — " It would be shameful that a martyr of Christ be not allowed to drink the blood of Christ. " Jogues was treacherously tomahawked at Ossernenon, now Auriesville, N.Y., on October 18, 1646, while entering an Indian cabin, to which he had been invited to dine. His head was staked on the village fence, and his body cast into the Mohawk River. 9iutumn 72 SONS OF GEORGETOWN Ucturning to CBcorgctottin THE orange an l rust of autumn crep t into the feathering iA ' the trees.

Summer ' s acti ities had come to an end, the accelerated program had departed, and Georgetown was reviving her golden days of pre-war.

And many an insight into character is revealed, and many an inspiration springs from the confidence that one close friend places in another. And it all begins with life at Georgetown. jfrosti i azing ' WT a matter of tradition each in- F coming freshmen class of George- y Bl town is put through a rigid test prescribed as a routine of restrictions through- out a definite week. A committee for the actixities is organized by the Sophomore Class. Distinguishing attire was prescribed for all freshmen taking part. It consisted of wearing large name plates worn in bill-board fashion, the rolling up of the right pants leg, the sub- stitution of a rope for a belt, and last but not least, the wearing of a blue and gray freshmen cap. The first night of hazing consisted of ' ari- ous stunts and contests performed before Copley Hall h the freshmen under the super- vision of the sophomores. An incident which added to the friendly raillery of the class was the photographing of chosen individuals for the HoYA as the " Typical freshmen of the class. ' ■ They posed in front of Copley in a very conventional costume and were promptly doused bv buckets of water con -eniently released from above. Some of the main and most important aspects of the celebrated week consisted in the pur- pose of freshmen getting acquainted with the campus, with classmates and with upper- classmen. The entire week was climaxed by a tea dance gi -en for the freshmen by the senior class. 75 freshman Class THE sv arm of freshmen who appeared on the campus last Octc her caused the upperclassmen to gaze in open- eyed surprise, e cr ha l there been such a large influx. There were tall ones and small ones, oungsters an l some not so x ' oung. Some were sh - and some were not — alike were all in one thing alone; the - were sons of George- town — li e Hundred strong. And each now became enriched with a hun- dred and fifty-sexen ears of outstanding tradition, heralded in the tall spires of Healy and the colonial approaches of Old North. Yet suddenly back to 194b, when told his room could be found high on the fourth floor of that Flemish structure, whose tower, da - and night, boomed out the hour with uncannx precision. With a roommate, each man climbed the long winding staircases; and a battery of crossfire began — " What ' s c)ur name? " , " Where are you from! ' " " .Are sou a xeteran " " What branch " .And so on until they reached the roof top of Healy. .A quick glimpse at door numbers, the disco er - of an assigned room, a Hop on the beds, and a panting climax — " Well, we re here! " Drama such as this was being enacted that first night in every campus dormitory. It was a comedy of errors; but of it, many a serious and lasting friendship was born. A good night ' s sleep ; and with the dawn, the scene shifted to registration and arranging of schedules for a long and strenuous year in the classroom and the burning of the midnight oil. The remaining time was marked by a mad rush from one room to another, taking tests 76 and recei ' ing tons of literature. The rules applicable to, " Gentlemen of Georgetown " were explained with great care and detail. Classes were scheduled for the end of the first week, but due to the large registration, the ' were postponed until the following Monday. The freshman had a fine opportunity to enjo - himself o -er that long first week-end. Some played tennis, some went canoeing on the Potomac, some just loafed around their rooms, but all wrote home, " ha -ing a wonderful time . . . Nothing to do! " . . . That was the first week, and the first week onl -; for with classes on Monday, the fresh- men were introduced to their new teachers, to studies, to homework, and to a memorable volume entitled, " Eight Prose Writers " and those conte.xt questions!

Dick, after his return from the ser ice, upon his arrixal at the Hilltop, saw the difference between the Georgetown of pre-war ears, and the one which met his determined leadership at the beginning of this ear. His first step toward cooperation and unification was the strengthening of the Student Council into an actually representative and governing body. As an indication of the spirited program of Dick ' s term of office, we only had to stand back and wonder at the imagination and spec- tacle of the campaign which he conducted. Garrulous publicity stunts were introduced, and prominent among the eye-catching events of that noisy, ebullient week, was the arri al on the campus of the Keenan campaign wagon covered with posters and the candidates ticket.

ML!SIC MAKER; Orchestra THE Georgetown University Orches- tra first came into existence when intercollegiate athletics were non- existent; the government was using most of the campus, and the college was fortunate to ha ' e two hundred students enrolled at one time. Organized in 1 44 by a group of musicians with the help of Bill Rach and Father Law, the Georgetown Orchestra has been a success- ful war baby, and now promises the most enterprising schedule on campus. The " George- town Rhythm Boys, " as the orchestra was originally known, have provided the music for many informal dances in Copley-Lounge and Ryan Gym. Composed of a five-man sax section, three trumpeters, two trombonists, and a four-man rhythm group, the Georgetown Orchestra plays hot, sweet and low, and its syncopated rhythms and original orchestrations have met the demands of every social program. The orchestra periodically held banquets and made awards of engraved G. U. ke s and siK ' er cigarette lighters to its members. The wonderful spirit manifested b - the members helped to keep the orchestra together as a cohesive group. During the last year the schedule has in- volved playing at the Hotels Roosevelt, .An- napolis and Roger Smith, the National Air- port, Chevy Chase Country Club, Immacu- lata, Rosemont, and the Georgetown Players ' " Sascha Calls the Kremlin. " Edward Drysgula is the present conductor and is assisted by Business Managers William Crofton and Richard Mantiglia. Wi z JSand THE war had left its mark on the Georgetown Uni ersit - Band. In- struments and uniforms, unused since 1942, had almost succumbed to rust and moth. October, however, brought foot- ball games with all the trimmings, and first steps for the resurrection of the band were taken b - Mr. Troy, S.J. One by one, mem- bers of the pre-war Georgetown band, vet- erans with experience in army bands, returned. The capable serxices of Mr. Herbert V. Hoyer, WOJG, .Assistant Director of the U. S. Army Band, were secured as director. The Band made its appearance at the Ford- ham game on the night of October 1 1 . ThcN accompanied the team to Philadelphia and on the trip to Boston. Fifty wildly shouting and loudly pla ing musicians at Bra ' es ' [- " ield formed almost half of Georgetown ' s entire cheering section. Those torchlight parades through old Georgetown, breakfast at eight in Boston ' s South Station, the Star-Spangled Banner in the dark at Uline ' s Arena, playing " Sons of Georgetown " while passing the reviewing stand in Washington ' s Holy Name Parade, serenading Philadelphia for an hour and a half from the Wayne Junction platform — tlese were the recollections which make Band n .embership worthwhile. Wm Uesertit ©fficers ' Craining Corps THE termination of hostilities and the return to normalcy have brought manifold changes to the organization of the Georgetown R.O.T.C. Organized in 1 791 to defend an embattled republic, it has pro- gressed through the years, rendering distin- guished service to the United States. During the War of 1812. in answer to the personal call of General Winder, Georgetown ' s sons laid aside their studies to take up arms against the British in the Battle of Bladensburg. In the Ci il War, Georgetown created the famous Blue and Gra - emblem which signified the union of the North and the South. The Fight- ing 69th was reviewed by President Lincoln on the grounds of Georgetown in 18b I. During the Mexican War the first soldier to scale the walls of the castle, Chapultepec, was a Georgetown student. In World War I o ' er a thousand men from Georgetown an- swered the call to ser -ice, while fifty-three lost their lives in that struggle. At present the service flag hanging in Dahlgren Chapel car- ries a gold star with the number 171 ; a tribute to the students killed in action in World War II. The history of Georgetown students serving under the colors of the United States gives significance to the new organization that has appeared this ear. The past is a pattern for the future and the R.O.T.C. has its primary object, as it had in the past, in laying the foundation of intelligent citizenship within the student and giving him the military train- ing that will benefit him and his nation. The New Reserve Officers Officer Training Course is a four-year program divided into a two-year basic course, and two-year advanced course. The elementary course includes mili- tarv subjects, among which are Military Organization, Hygiene. First Aid. and E olu- tion of Warfare. Also prescribed b - the course are regular sessions of close and extended drill. As Junior and Senior members of the ad- ' anced R.O.T.C.. cadets choose either Tactics and Techniques of the Infantr - or those of the Air Corps. Members of these groups will re- turn to the campus ne.xt fall as veterans of a six weeks " summer course at Fort Meade. There, future Infantry Officers will take prac- tical training in maneuvers, while future Air Corps men will take fifteen hours of familiar- ization and indoctrination flights. Through arrangement with the Signal Corps the Cadets have seen during the past semester some of the finest Army motion pictures, many of which were real action pictures taken during World War II. This has been part of the regular course of instruction. The primary object of the advanced course, as pursued five hours a week, is to produce a pool of professionally trained reser e officers ready for any national emergency. Its mem- bers have the option of the air or the ground course which lead respect i eK ' to commis- sions as second lieutenants in the Infantry or the Air Corps. The R.O.T.C., transformed from a war- time unit of less than one hundred men, now comprises over one hundred and ninety cadets. This year, they welcomed Colonel John C. Whitcomb as Commander of the new George- town Infantry and .Air Units. Col. Whit- comb was assisted by Lt. Col. R. G. Cicco- lella, Lt. Col. Leo E. Fielder, Major R. J. Cleghorn and Captain E. L. Roughton and Captain J. W. Klerk. Under the able direction of Colonel Whit- comb and his staff of assistants, composed of veteran officers and non-commissioned officers of World War II, the R.O.T.C. program pro- gressed smoothly and efficiently. Throughout the entire year cooperation was splendid, mo- rale was high, discipline exemplary, and all enjoyed a spirit of camaraderie. .All seemed to sense the necessit - of preparedness in the uncertain aftermath of the late world crisis. 85 Hiding Club (i r ' ESUMING its place once again in I - extra-curricular activities, George- _M]__W town ' s Riding Club inaugurated an auspicious year, and was held in the same high regard as from its inception in 1942. As a promoter for health and spirit no other sport can compare with riding, and the Riding Club has carried through a successful year with this in mind. The first problem that confronted the equestrians was to secure a place where all could ride as a group, and where the inexpe- rienced could acquire a mastery under the guidance of competent instructors. Whereas in the beginning, many found the art of horse- manship a bit fatiguing, and subsequently had their meals off the nearest mantel, after de-stocking the infirmary of its supply of liniment — they were gradually initiated into the unpainful equestrian life. A committee was appointed for the purpose of locating a stable; and in less than a week one was selected which furnished a beautiful Maryland countryside and a variety of trails through Rock Creek Park. The bracing breezes of October ' s early mornings awakened a sudden desire for trails in the heart of Wash- ington ' s woodlands ; and to canter along bridal paths in nature s painted scenes became the favored lot of the enthusiastic horsemen of the Riding Club. Saturday morning was the time chosen to don hoots and breeches, take crop in hand, and canter into the recesses of the woods. The first ride was planned and all gathered in Copley Square earh ' one morning to pursue the hobby of kings. The automobiles of va- rious members afforded transportation, and the saddlemen were off to " Pegasus ' stables. " The more ambitious members headed their steeds into the future, giving rein to pleasant visions of the da s when they would lead their mounts to ictory in distinguished horse shows. Perhaps in the minds of some were blue ribbons and the graceful bows to the judges as the winners are announced. All mastered their mounts and various ob- stacles, and preparations were made for hunt- ing, jumping exhibitions, and the sponsoring of a horse show for charity. The enormous amount of work entailed in these projects served only to increase the determination of the members to see them through successfully. The Club was fortunate in having some of the most enthusiastic horse country in the world in the nearby areas of Virginia and Mar land. Members attended sex ' eral of the more popular hunts and shows in Middleburg and Fairfax, and came away with man - ideas for their own organization. The meetings of early winter were held semi-monthly as informal discussions when the spring acti ' ities were outlined. More than simple business conferences, these meetings were a gathering of good fellows chatting contentedly of the joy of riding. Guiding the club as moderator was the Rev. Arthur A. Coniff, S.J., who rode with the group each Saturday morning and seemed to enjoy the thrills and spills as heartily as any. Assisting Father Coniff was Adie Von Gontard, President; James P. Bunnell, Vice- President: John Loftus, Secretary; and Da id B. Graham, Treasurer. Thus the first post-war ear of the Riding Club came to an end. There was perfect agree- ment among members that the year had been one of great success, marred only by the bre " ity of the riding seasons. .All eagerh ' await the beginning of the next fall season. 87 flask and JBottle m WE Flask anJ Bottle Pla ers is an r informal dramatic group, each mem- her of which is unanimoush ' elected ye»4»lf ) the office of president, (- " ounded be- fore the war in 1 40 when its membership consisted of ten members, Father Richard C. Law, S.J.. was appointed moderator, its pur- iewer who asked the campus " characters " for their opinions on the approaching game. With the ad ice and guidance of l ' ather Law, their second sketch presented for the Fordham rally was even more successful. The scene was laid in the Fordham locker room Just prior to the game. Jim Hicke - and Bob Dietician: Ram stew tonight ' pose was to supply short comedy sketches, portraying various aspects of campus life. These sketches were performed at the differ- ent athletic rallies held before the games. During the war, due to lack of members, the Flask and Bottle ceased to function, but in October 1945 with the return of football rallies as a feature of campus life on the Hilltop, the Flask and Bottle reappeared. At the rally before the Wake Forest game, their first sketch was presented. In it, Peter H. Desmond starred in the role of an inter- Maloney made a hit as two of the Fordham team members. Two more sketches were presented during the football season, one before the game with George Washington University, was the life of George Washington, starring Don Hack and Roy Davis. The other prior to the game with Saint Louis was the college life of Sylvester Techivow played by John McMahon. In it appeared Dick McMahon as Registrar, Hal Berzon as Dean of Discipline, John Loftus as Dean, and Joe Woltering as bodyguard. % z fordham Ballu THE rafters of CJaston Hall shook with the rtuirs of (jeorgetown ' s sons and their escorts; anJ cheers were tuned to the marching songs of the 1 lo a bandsmen, on f-riday night, October 11th. For this was one of the season ' s greatest rallies and held on the e e of the Hoya " s first post-war mascot, heralded in song and cheer as flameses l. , or plainK s|X " aking -the bordham Ram. The Cjlec Club led b Or. DonoN-an, sang " Hail, Men of bordham in honor of our oppo- nent and fellow Jesuit College. Afterwards, Nat Brusilof, composer of " Hit em Again, ' " presented the song to Georgetown by leading Smile, Doc. . . Think it over F football clash, with the Rampant Rams from Rose Hill. Gaston Hall was filled to capacity and ban- ners emblazoning the remains of Fordham ' s illustrious Ram, and battered Fordham grid- iron greats dangled from the balcony. With the opening notes of " Forward, Sons of George- town, " a th(5usand voices echoed and re- echoed throughout the hall. The rally was ke ed to high pitch by a dar- ing event of which the general student had just become aware. A fearless band of George- town Marauders had stealthily penetrated the ri -al campus in New York; absconded their the Glee Club who had the honor of singing it. The climax of the evening had come. Dick Keenan was in the midst of discounting any rumors that our trophy of war had been re- covered by its former owners. His words were lost in a thunder of shouts and war-whoops, the likes of which Georgetown has ne er heard before, as Ram-Nappers, Bill O ' Leary, Ken Ste enson, Bob Gorra and jack Moloney, led the willing Ram down the side aisle up onto the stage. It was a full fixe minutes be- fore the commotion showed an ' signs of abat- ing. 89 Jfrcshman ' " 3cnior HDca Banct VER ' little time passed before the Senior CUiss introdueeLl the promis- ing [-reshman Class to the social life at the Hilltop. Cjala [Mans lor the I ' rosh debut were all eomi letei.1 lor the Wardman Park on October 21 when Washingron awoke one morning and found herself in the midst of the hotel strike. But no such ad ersit - could prevent the Seniors from making their presentation of social freshmen to the under- classes of Visitation, FrinitN ' , Dunbarton and Immaciilata. ( n the morning of October 21, from nine in the morning until almost three in the after- noon, every mirror in Ryan, McGuire, O Gara, and New North was engaged. Only those connected with Georgetown could realize that the r- " rosh were " smoothing up " to be pre- sentable for their dates at the tea dance that afternoon. With every hair in place, and Windsor knot tied to perfection, the " green ones " passed through the old iron gate o( (jcorgetown for the Wardman Park with hopes running high. The Burgundy Room was filled to capacity shortly after the doors were flung ajar. Suppli- ant glances and the characteristic vigilance of college freshmen were evidenced as these social neophytes scanned the sideline for a young lady to whom — " Ma I have this dance " would be a welcome pleasure. After light conversation of " Where are you from ' ' " " Do T)u like Virry " the greenness was gone and the terpsichorean carnival began. The ease with which they mastered the Samba, the Lindy, and especially the more difficult waltzes, was source of astonishment to our more sophisticated seniors. With the last strains of " Good Night Sweet- heart " our I- ' rosh were reassured of a Saturday date or an invitation to the ne.xt Vizzy or Trinity prom. Seated: Mislan.

One bright morning last October found our student body on the lawn before the es- planade of White-Gravenor, attending this votive Mass which was to be the beginning of the scholastic year, [- " ems and poinsettas waved in the wind and provided a colorful back-drop for the temporary altar that had been constructed outside the main doors of the building. The large gold candlesticks and the red vestments were additional colors add- ing to the already picturesque scene. While hundreds of students knelt to pray, the Mass was celebrated by Father Coolahan, with Father McHugh officiating as Deacon, and Mr. Troy, S.J., as sub-deacon. The beauti- ful music of the Sancti Benedicti, sung by the University choir under the direction of Dr. Edward Donovan, added a note of de- votion and serenity which will linger long in our memory. The number of Georgetown men present at this Sacrifice of the Mass was indeed gratifying to the faculty and the students themsel -es. This bore out the fact that the post-war student of Georgetown was looking to Cjod for guidance in his intellect- ual pursuits. Piladelphia Club EMBERS of Georgetown ' s Phila- delphia Club inaugurated the new school year with a series " successful " policy-making " meetings. The " big week-end " of the Villanova- Georgetown game held the spotlight in the fall season. Men of the Hilltop enturing to the City of Brotherly Love were greeted b - a bevy of charming girls from Rosemont and Chestnut Hill. Officers who were largely responsible for the success and general popularity of the club were: Peter H. Desmond, President; James V.

Opening on Mon la -, October 21, at 8:30 p.m., the spiritual in cn- tor - consisted of three days of prayer and meditation highlighted b - conferences and spiritual rcai lings. Two retreat masters directed the different groups during their religious exercises. They were the Reverend Thomas B. Chetwood, S.J., and the Rexerend Daniel J. Burke, S.j. Father Chetwood, who is now nearing his fiftieth year in the Societ - of Jesus, is not unknow n at the Hilltop, ha ing once taught English and Psychology here. He was the first Regent of the Law School during the years 1928 to 1931. Father Chetwood directed the retreat for the upperclassmen from the pulpit of Holy Trinity Church. The large I ' reshmen Class was under the guidance of l- ' ather Burke. A veteran of the war, Father Burke serxed on the cruiser " Phil- adelphia " as a a y Chaplain. Since his dis- charge. Father Burke lias been teaching Religion at lor ,lham Unixersity. His lixely references, during the lectures, to Nax ' y ex- periences, heightened the interest of his audi- ences, composed chieflx ' of x ' cterans. The hope that all those attending the re- treat xx ' ould make a general confession during the three days of prayer and meditation, xxas expressed by the Retreat Masters. Its success had been entrusted to the care of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and was evidenced by the num- ber who daily attended Mass and receixed Holy Communion. The retreat ended on the morning of Octo- ber 25th with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Papal Benediction. iFnir TiON o .CTOBER found the Hoya ' s har- ried editorial board in an inner sanctum get-together. Father Gal- lagher, S.J., moderator of the paper for the previous year, introduced the new moderator, Mr. William Troy, S.J., and outlined a plan for the ensuing year. From the start, the Hova was beset with post-war problems. Patience, hard work and cooperation won a ictory. To Mr. Troy, S.J., for his encouraging sup- port and outstanding leadership, to Pete Mul- len, for his industry and determination, and to such men as Joe Moone ' and Gordon R an, for their generous and unselfish zeal, readers of the HoYA owe a deep debt of gratitude. In February Don Donahue advanced to the editor ' s chair, succeeding Pete Mullen. He was assisted by associate editors, Chris Wilson and Bill McHale, joined by sports editors.

Although the Journal functioned during the war, its output from a handful of students was necessarily meager. This ' ear witnessed an influ.x of short story writers, poets, artists, and book critics. The tone attained by the new staff was elevating. The editions were popular and thoroughh ' read throughout the campus. Under the moderatorship of Re ' . Gerald F. " ' ates, its Editor-in Chief, Paschal La Padu- la, and Managing Editor, Thomas P. O ' Keefe, the Journal has taken on new life and com- pares favorably with any college publication of its type. William Keenan wrote several fine sociological character studies and contributed a provocative article on Catholic Youth par- ticipation in international relations. George Edelen contributed some notable mood and satirical stories, while Thomas Collins was par- tial to melancholy impressionism in his poetry. " The Heroic Image " by Robert Hanlon voiced a plea for a new romantic movement and offered a one-act play, the publication of which was an innovation for the Journal. Music critics were introduced in the persons of John Austin Nammack and V. William Shedleski; several talented illustrators, notably Wade Ray, Jack Lee and Bernard Roth, enlivened the stories and injected a spot of collegiate humor, while Mr. Ray ' s artistry embellished many of the covers. Business was efficiently shouldered by John Bachman, Carl Eisenman and Edward Beacom. 96 i:he (Boikn Jubilee of iathtr John % © ' Connor, S Father John J. O ' Connor. S.J. FATHER John J .

It has a ofold objective — to point out to the seniors the opportunities that are offered in the dif- ferent walks of life that the ' will follow upon graduation; secondly to weld into a unit the members of the Senior Class, who ha e been split up into various class sections as under- classmen. Under the moderatorship of Father Charles J. [- ' ole , S.j., these objectives were faith- ful 1 - pursued. Meetings were held monthly at Hotel Twenty Four Hundred Si.xteenth St., in the form of dinner meetings, to which men prominent in their respective fields were inxited as guest speakers. Di. Iiboi Eckhaidt addresses the first meeting of Pathfinders ( " lub phgsical ' Craining program © EORGETOWNS physical training program is regarded by today ' s col- legiate authorities as one of the finest and most complete of its type in the country. The program, inaugurated in l - 42 in the form of boxing classes, developed quick- ly under the added stimulus of the war, and soon attained a position of major importance in the school curriculum. Chiefly responsible for the brilliant success of the physical training program is George J. Becker, Director of Physical Training. Mr. Becker this year adopted a program whose purpose was " to encourage physical de elop- ment in the college student, and ... to require of a man that his muscles be trained to respond to his will. " With the help of two assistants, John Moloney, a senior at Georgetown, and Walter O ' Connell, of the Class of 1945, Mr. Becker has worked constantly to bring to the student the realization of the intention of this -ear ' s P.T. program. The schedule has compulsory calisthenics, cross countr - running, dual com- bat, genera! phxsical conditioning, and com- petiti -e sports such as touch football, basket- ball, track, -olle ball, speedball, and pushball. Boxing, formerK- a part of the P,T. schedule, came into its own and became a arsit - sport. Not only to test the effectiveness of this program, but also to determine the progress made by the participants, tests of respiratory action, ph sical stamina, and adaptablities were made. 99 Also it has been the policy to give competi- tive examinations at the end of every term, examinations which include running, muscle tests and physical endurance tests. A new GEORGE J. BECKER, Director of Physical Training innovation in the program provides that every man shall be able to swim 100 yards before he leaves Georgetown. The final purpose of the program has been to produce the physically adept student and to furnish a latent field for varsity athletics. That this very complete schedule has been effective is evident not only from records compiled from the achievement tests, but likewise from the fact that since P.T. has been introduced into the college curriculum, there has been a noticeable decline in infirmary cases. Physical training has definitely become a part of the Georgetown policy of developing healthy men, both physically and mentally. George Becker probably best sums up this relationship in this comment: " The purpose of our present course is to make the student ' s body what the college curriculum is endeavor- ing to make his mind — a thing to be respon- sive, and to work with the least amount of energy.

More than two hundred couples danced to the music of Jules Lande, popular New York maestro. The affair was arranged so that those who made the trip from Washington for the N. Y.U football game on the following afternoon would be assured of another great week-entl Owing to the fact that most of the G.U. men were unable to leave Washington until late in the afternoon, dress was informal.

Langman, S.J., the Mask and Barible has completed one of its most acti e seasons in many years. Moreoxer, this particular year has been unique in George- town ' s dramatic history, as witnessing the presentation of our first original musical comedy, " Sasha Calls the Kremlin. " The Mask and Bauble opened its lQ4b-47 season with the presentation of three one-act plays. " Knockout " was written especially for the occasion h Father Langman and was warmly receixed. Sharing the same bill were " The Rising of the Moon " by the Irish play- wright, Lady Gregory, and " If Men Played Cards as Women Do " by George Kaufman. Mr. Kaufman ' s comedy kept the audience in constant laughter. A tragic note was added on the evening of the final performance, how- e ' er, when one of the principals, a white mouse, met a sudden end when trampled upon by a member of the cast. .A period of frantic activity followed the closing of the one-act plays, since " Sasha Calls the Kremlin " was scheduled to open ten da s later. It was the period when mem- bers of the cast went around muttering their lines to themselves, when the directors strug- gled desperately to manage countless rehears- als, when costumes had to be fitted and sets constructed — in short, the helter-skelter period that is alternately deplored and enjoyed by all true followers of the stage. The libretto of " Sasha " was written by Mr. Philip Sharper, S.j., and Father Monaghan, while the music was composed h two gentlemen of George- town, Kevin Kennedy and William Rogers. The sets, entireK- new and completed in the amazingly short period of eight days, were designed and constructed by David Sherwood of the School of Foreign Serxice and Mr. FR. LEO G. MONAGHAN, S.J.

The small stage at Holy Trinity High School presented a problem, since " Sasha " called for four different sets and eight scene changes, but Mr. Mann solved the difficulty by engineering specially constructed revolving flats. The plot of " Sasha " " involved a sardonic view of international conferences and of the delegates who attend them, with special at- tention focused on our Russian friends. The Russians provided man - hilarious moments particularly the antics of Sasha Gromolikov whose speech to the American delegation " With our hands in your pocket, how can these two great nations fail, " brought down the house. Even the lightest of " pinks " could hardly fail to be rufffed by the play ' s presen- tation of the " Gospel according to St. Mar.x. " The lilting music of " Sasha " " was greatly applauded and as a more tangible e idence of popularity, whistled and hummed around the campus for many weeks. Particularly memo- rable were " It ' s Always Springtime " and " There ' ll Always Be a Rainbow. " .Another entitled " Bow Down to Uncle Joe " was sung by the Russian delegation to the tun e of " The Volga Boatman " and included the words, " If you want to know how we run the show, we ve got the veto! " Meeting with such success in stage endeav- ors, the Mask and Bauble turned its talents to the radio. Station ' WARL, the new station of Arlington, Virginia, was host to members of the society every Saturday, when a series of one-act pla s and variet - shows were pres- ented. .Xgain this year ' s Mask and Bauble had made history, for this was the first time that it had entured regular performances o ' er an outside station. Radio thus represents a new challenge to our campus actors, forcing I m. dependence on -oice alone to convey effects without resort to the mannerisms and props that can be used in stage productions. Among the spring performances was the psychological murder drama " Night Must Fall, " which was produced with the same tal- ent, imagination and industry which have characterized all the work of the Mask and Bauble this season. Georgetown offers its con- gratulations to Father Langman, Father Mon- aghan and the members of the Mask and Bauble for their fine work this vear. ■WE GET THE FACTS!

Men from the general Cle -eland area were eligible to join, and the announcement of the first meeting attracted a large group of pro- spective members. The opening meeting fea- tured a brief outline of the purpose of the club. The club unanimously appro ' ed the idea of a Christmas Dinner-Dance to be held in Cleveland during the holidays for vacationing Hoyas. The plan came to life in the Conti- nental Restaurant in Cle -eland on December 23rd, 1 4b, and was preceded by a cocktail party in the Zephyr Room. Ill Christmas Choir n mas vacat TRADITION of long standing w as again revived on campus the ' night prior to the departure for Christ- nas vacation. A special choir under the direc- tion of Dr. Edward Donovan made its appear- ance as the tower clock struck midnight. Following the plan of the Rev. Daniel Power, S.J., the assemblage of forty-three men filled the midnight air surrounding the Hilltop with traditional hymns of Christmastide. As the Carolers made their tour of the campus, en- toning " Adeste Fidelis, " " Silent Night, " " O Little Town of Bethlehem, " and " O ' er the Eastern Mountains, " lights were turned on and faces appeared at all the windows. This renewal of an old tradition was heartily welcomed h the student body and is a further indication that the true Georgetown spirit has returned from the war. 1 football 1 46 Reason ' 1X14 hostilities at an end, and old familiar faces gracing the campus once again, and new ones appearing very day, talk turned to football possibilities. Very few players from the 1 42 team returned, but this handful was hailed as the nucleus of the new team. Linemen Bus Werder, Elmer Oberto, and Lou Robus- telli, backs, Paul Walsh, Lenny Bonforte. and end Larry Koncelik comprised the sextet. Coach Hagerty planned his first post-war team around these men. The six men were comple- mented by many promising new men. The team that functioned throughout the season presented George Benigni and AI Sara- she itz at the ends, with the pivotal spot fluc- tuating between Ralph Benso. Tony Kelley and Vic Banonis, the latter having a slight edge. Lou Rubustelli and George Antonowsky played outside of Elmer Oberto and Bus Wer- der. a solid block that frustrated more than one enemy advance in the course of the season. The usual backfield was " Babe " Baranowski at quarterback, Connie 0 " Dougherty, fullback, and Lenny Bonforte with Paul Walsh held sway at the halfs. No one knew for certain, but that all the makings of a good team were at hand; the question was: Would proper use be made of them ? The first game with Wake Forest was viewed with apprehension. They had lost few from their 1945 team, and were rated as better than average. The Ho as met them and very nearly conquered them. The result of that first game was disappointing, but the team showed sparks of greatness, and there was hope for a successful season. After the first game the team was rolling, and when the season tallies were in, had won five out of their eight games. Coaches, Dubolsky. Hagerty and Murtaugh F.ATHER K.-XNE.

On October 4 at 8:30 p.m., the Hoya partisans waited impatiently for Jack Hagerty to unveil his first post-war team, and were rewarded b - the sight of a Georgetown touchdown in the opening minutes of the first stanza. Elmer Raba, first string quarterback, took the Wake Forest kickoff to the Deacons 38- yard line, a runback of some 57 yards. Then Raba hit Paul Walsh on the left side of the field, and Mr. Walsh flew over the rest of the stripes to rack up six points for Georgetown. It was not until the third quarter that the fireworks broke out again. The Deacons scored in the third quarter, again in the fourth period, a G.U. fumble in the end zone, and a Wake Forest recovery of the ball resulted in the third and final score of the day. Time and time again the forward wall of George- jAMES D. MOORE. Student Manager town halted the Deacons advance just when a score seemed inevitable. Twice G.U. ' s line dug in for goal line stands on the 4 and 13 yard stripes in the second period, on the three in the third period, and on the goal line in the final stanza. The G.U. line, playing its first game together, was outstanding in its refusal to allow the Deacons to gather mo- mentum, and except for occasional unfor- tunate relapses dominated the whole play. The backs, too, made their share of tackles, and the punting of Elmer Raba was a definite highlight throughout the entire game. .Mto- gether it was an excellent performance by a relatively inexperienced team, pitted against one of the best in the South ' s formidable array of good teams. The o erwhelming score against Georgetown that was expected by those would-be forecasters of the newspaper world did not materialize. The Wake Forest game pointed to a successful season for the Hovas. 114 (5M, $ f ordham 7 THE lights of Griffith Stadium beamed down on lb, 000 cheering spectators Friday night, October 1 1 , as the Hoyas seeking their first ' ictory in two starts eked out an 8-7 win over the Fordham Rams. In the first canto the situation was definitely serious with the Fordham eleven scoring within the first four minutes of play. Skapines of Fordham put the ball over the cross-bar for the extra point, and Fordham led 7-0. The game then became a prix ' ate battle of opposing linemen, with no further scoring until the third period. Midwa - in that quarter Bus Werder, G.U. ' s right guard, blocked Ososki ' s punt which the latter himself recov- ered in the end zone to give the Hovas two exentually important points. Later in this same period, a Baranowski pass to Joe Sullivan placed the ball on the Rams " 3b. Then Baranowski, leaping high into the air in an exhibition of clever backfield play, flipped a pass to Len Bonforte who promptly spun goalward. From the two-yard stripe, Joe Murphy quickly crashed through center for a score. George Benigni ' s attempt to convert failed, but Georgetown then commanded an 8-7 lead which it ne -er relinquished. The punting of Lou Surman was excellent, and the all around play of Babe Baranowski, Paul Walsh and Len Bonforte in the back- field, Elmer Oberto, Bus Werder, Jim Arne- berg, Ralph Benso and Pete Baker in the line contributed heaxilv to the ictorv. 115 WE STOLE THE RAM! t-ORNEIIA, PAGANELLl. SHERWOOD, GRAHAM, MOONEY illanooa ig (B.ia. 2 o N October 20 the rampaging Wikl- cats of Villano a trampled George- town at Shibe Park, coming out on the long end of a 19-2 count. After the Georgetown kick-off, the " Cats ran aground in three plays, and returned a punt as far as their own 48-yard stripe. One running play produced a first down for the home towners on the 20, but here the G.U. line held and Werder and Koncelik broke through forcing the opposition to throw two futile aerials. Georgetown took possession of the ball, but no advance could be made, and Raba punted to the Wildcats ' 30. Capriotti recei ed the ball, and was not hindered until Banonis bounced him on the Hoyas " 38, The next play proved too bewildering for the Hilltoppers, so while most of the team was engaged in chasing a decoy, Rogers slipped through tackle on what might be termed as a delayed hand- off thrust. He scored unmolested while Kane flattened Bonforte with one of the most beau- tifully thrown blocks of the day. That was, unfortunately, the tenor of the game, because the ' Cats scored again on that same play, the only difference being that Ca- priotti carried instead of Rogers. Their third score was the climax of a sustained 87-yard drive, Rogers and Capriotti performing most of the labor. The Georgetown thrill came when Johnny Preston scampered 71 yards down the far side line, only to be caught on the 8-yard line, and the Hoyas couldn ' t push the ball over the goal. Another drive, featuring Jack McTamney, stalled on the Wildcats ' 20 by interception, and on the next play resulted in an automatic safety after a Villanova fumble rolled out of the end rone.

Baranowski, who was later to sa e the da for Georgetown, added the extra point to tie up the score. The third period was scoreless, but the final stanza brought much excitement to the chilled fans. After Georgetown drove from their own 48 to the St. Louis 1, a Baranowski fumble ga e St. Louis the ball. A wobbly Billiken kick then went out to their own 14, and the Hoyas were then again in position to score. On a succeeding play, Georgetown fumbkvL but the alert Tony Beyer recovered the l all on the Billikens ' 5. Baranowski then plungCLl () er the line making the score i )-7. The tr for the extra point was blocked. St. Louis was the first to score, taking the aeUantage of a G.U. miscue. Paul Walsh, who pla ed a fine game, fumbled on his own 8-yard line, and Weisner of the Billikens reco ' ered. On the fourth down, Crowder shot around his own left end for a touchdown and Broeg added the extra point. The real hero of the game was, of course, Be er, who by scoring in the second period, and by recover- ing the fumble in the last, enabled the Hoyas to rack up another win. The Hoya line, big and handy, sparked by Elmer Oberto, caused the St. Louisites plenty of trouble by recovering 3 of their fumbles. C,i:OR(,l-: WASHINGTON STOPPED! (5.m. 18 6.m 6 THE Hoyas provided a surprise finish to the traditional intercity battle this beautiful Fall time afternoon, as they registered two lightning-fast touch- downs in the final minutes of play to win 18-b. Ha ' ing been on the short end of the ground gaining all afternoon, the Ho as en- tered the final period with no signs of an ability to break the b-b deadlock. Then quite un- expectedly, Lou Surman pulled Babe Baran- owskis pass out of the blue, and scampered 51 yards down the middle for a score. Xot forty seconds later, Len Bonforte intercepted a Colonial aerial on their 32-yard line, ran it back for the final touchdown, and the Hill- toppers had the ball game. In the first period. Tackle Jim O ' Keefe opened the scoring for the Hoyas. GW, on its own 3-yard line, attempted a kick which was blocked and O ' Keefe, recovering the ball, ran it into the end zone for a touchdown, the first of his football career. The GW ' s evened the score in the second period, when end Dick Koester looped a pass to Frank Close in the end zone. The b-b score remained unchanged until the blitz work of Surman and Bonforte in the final stanza. Despite the -ictory, Georgetown was out- played in many departments. The GW ' s seemed to roam the field at will, except when in sight of the goal line. One GW attack was halted on the 10 in the third period when Buddy Spiess recovered a fumble for the Blue and Grav. 119 JB.C. 20 (5M.

Before the first half had ended, Babe Baranowski had fiung two pay dirt passes, one to Lou Surman, near the end of the first quarter, and another to Surman at the start of the second. The Royals scored their lone marker in the first half, clima.xing a 70-yard sustained dri -e with a spectacular end zone catch of a long pass. But the Hill- toppers couldn ' t be stopped and they entered the third period with a 14-7 lead. Touchdowns seemed endless in the second half. George Benigni recovered a Royal fumble on the Scranton 3b, and moments later Con- nie O ' Dougherty hit the goal line chalk from the 4, making the total 21-7. Another Scran- ton fumble on the l ' resulted in the 28-7 touchdown, as Graham scored on an end sweep from a spread formation, a play which had mystified the Tommies all afternoon. Jack O ' Connor provided the final TD, when inter- cepting a Royal pass on their 41 stripe, he leather lugged it all the way to the goal line.

No sooner was the kick-off com- pleted, when on the first play from scrimmage, GU " s little Lou Miller carried the ball 71 yards to the goal line and a score on a sensa- tional broken field run. Baranowski drop kicked the extra point, and GU went into the lead, 7-b. Then it was all Baranowski as the durable little quarterback passed the team to the Violet 7. From there he skirted left end for the second score. His successful drop kick was called back for a clipping penalty, but his next try from the 17 went wide. Score — GU 13, NYU b. NYU then came into its own as Millman lugged leather to the GU 7, and on the fourth try cracked over. The extra point misfired, and the Hoyas still led, but by the slim margin of a lone point.

Baranowski missed the extra point, and N ' U took to throwing des- perate passes. The closing minutes were in- deed exciting with " do or die " plays by the Violet team and the brilliant defense work of the Blue and Gray line, but the score remained 19-12. 122 Fronl Row: L. !o R-.

Scarcely more than a lad, he left his native land with the high intention of devoting his life to the service of God in the New World. Upon his arrival in Quebec, he offered himself formally to the Jesuit Superior, as a donne, and vowed to work among the savages as a lay assistant to the missionaries, without recompense, and to lead a life of celibacy. The two following years were spent laboring with the Jesuits in Canada. On September 24, 1646, in the company of Father Jogues and some Huron Indians, he started by canoe on a long and perilous journey for Ossemenon (Auriesville, N.Y.). As they neared the end of the trip some weeks later, they were overtaken by the Mohawks. Brought captive to the village on October 17th, Jogues was martyred the following evening, while Lalande was confined in one of the cabins. Learning of Jogues ' death, he stealthily crept out, when the night was far spent, in the hope of finding Jogues body and burying it. But savage guards rose like specters out of the earth, tomahawked him, and Lalande gave up his soul to God early on the morning of October 19, 1646. His head was staked on a fence beside that of Jogues, and his body hurled into the Mohawk River.

Their number was supplemented in Oc- tober, and it soon became evident that the class possessed a strong spirit of school leader- ship. This class, as much as any other, provided a bridge between a wartime Hilltop and a peacetime one. The Junior Class came in a hot, humid summer when few acti ities were functioning, and they sought to overcome the insouciance that surrounded them.

Toohe -, S.j., was chancellor of the Philoclemic Society. Restrict- ed in membership to juniors and Seniors, the Philodemic was founded in 1830. In age it ranks second only to the Sodality; and it is the oldest collegiate debating society in the United States. In more than one hundred intercollegiate debates the Philodemic has won ninety-one; and perhaps the most notable portion of that record is the stretch between the years 1921-1Q38, when it enjoyed seven- teen victorious years with ne ' er a defeat. The Merrick debate is the most coveted of the year, for the winner is acclaimed the best debater in the Senior Class, and awarded the Merrick medial, in addition to a substan- tial cash prize.

It immediately became the most pop- ular of the non-resident organizations. Edward Beacom, pre-war Vice-President, was elected President. Tom Sullivan, Charles Schultye, Robert Dickerson and Joseph Cor- bley were elected to Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Parliamentarian positions re- spectively. 0 ' er ten dances and parties were sponsored, each highly successful.

This was partly due to the fact that its membership was made up of experienced students, who started as Freshmen at George- town before the war: and whose education was temporarily halted, due to serving in the armed forces. These returning veterans, now more determined than ever to complete their education, have readjusted themselves with distinction to a much changed post-war pro- gram. Complementing their number are three groups, who started in as Freshmen in October " 45. January and April " 4t , respectively. ■ It took time to weld together this hetero- geneous roster; and class elections were not held until late Fall. The social program for the class, as such, was somewhat curtailed due to the rebirth of the Junior Prom and the Senior Ball. However, the Sophomores enjoyed a large share of the benefits of these outstanding functions, without being burdened with their attendant worries and responsibilities. In ad- dition Saturday afternoon dancing at the Mayflower was popular, and the Shoreham had many devotees. However, a " mens sana " was kept in this " corpore sano " " through the medium of serious application to the books during each school week. Term papers also had to be written ; and these necessitated fre- quent visits to the Congressional Library, the U. S. Archives and other valuable sources of information at the disposal of students study- ing in the Nation ' s Capital. Individual members of the class were prom- inent in all extracurricular activities — sports, debating, glee club, international relations club, the band, the dramatic society, the 149 1 Im A, the joL RNAL and the S(Klalit -.

' With the acquisition of knowledge, new friendships were formed and old ties made stronger. Gripes were aired in bull sessions — a common failing when college students get together, ' et the most prominent and per- sistent grumbler on the campus would be the first to come to Georgetown ' s defense at the first faint rumble off campus. DOLAN. HALL. DICKERSON Boxing jf WTFTER a respite of fifteen years, t+4 Georgetown University ' s boxing I Ml team once again came into the foreground of collegiate sport. The manly art of self-defense was preserved in proud manner by Coach Marty Gallagher ' s men throughout the winter season. The campaign opened auspiciously against the Bucknell Uni ersity fighters. Ray Larrow was outstanding in his technical knockout of Gal Seaman in the heavyweight division. The next match showed improvement. Kings Point Merchant Marine Academy was the victor by 5 -2 margin. Scoring for the Hoyas were Gal Reeder, George Detorie, who won by a unanimous decision, and Ray Lar- row, who won by a knockout in round one. Pointing toward the Gatholic University match on February 8, the Hilltoppers trained diligently. Due to a high degree of publicity the contest attracted a capacity crowd to the Brookland gymnasium for the local appear- ance of C Georgetown ' s leather pushers. The team went into the ring un lerdogs, and bat- tered their wav to a 4-4 draw before the j.ART ' i ' g.all. ghi:r 151 startled anJ excitCLl 4, ()()() onlookers.

A word of congratulation to Coach Gallagher and his charges for a fine season flavored with excitement and potential ability! It was evident that Georgetown was again to take a leading place in collegiate boxing circles. W ' . RM LP FOR RAY L. ' XRROW I i:rack 1947 THIS fall saw Coach Elmer Hardcll and his 1047 edition of Georgetown Uni -ersit ' s track team get off to a slow start h competing with local cross country teams and ending up with a record of two wins, two losses and one tie. But as time wore on, the team picked up momentum. The winter indoor season proxed highly suc- cessful and the prospects for an interesting spring record was inevitable. The mile relay team, consisting of Bill Drugan, Mort Kane, Jim Mewshaw and Ed Sause, finished first in the New ' ork Knights of Columbus meet on March 8th, second in the Millrose games, and third in the K of C meet in Boston and the N.Y.A.C. meet. An interesting highlight concerning the relay team is that Bill Dzugan and Ed Sause running the one and four positions were also a winning combination when they helped Bayonne High School of New Jersey capture the Penn Relay Championship in 1943. SALISE ON THE TRACK HAP HARDELL According to Hap Hardell, Sause is the best prospect that he has seen since the days of Georgetown ' s Hugh Short. Although Ed ' s specialty is the quarter-mile run, he took top honors in the 300-yard run of the K of C in Boston. Dave Smith also deserves individual recognition. He placed first in the 1000-yard event at the K of C at New York. Both of these men were inxited to almost all the im- portant indoor meets this year. That Georgetown will gain new laurels in the Carolina Relays, the Seton Hill Rela s, Penn Relays and the I. C. A. A. A. A. meet in the spring is a certainty. 153 his ho[ sea to I ag DZUGAN, SAUSE, MICHAILIDES, MEWSHAW, KANE JBaskttball ■ 7 7 rITH the end of the football season [ j last November the entire Hilltop J looked toward Elmer Ripley and his 1947 team for another jubilee year. They hoped that the team would have a successful season and reach its zenith in an invitation to the N.C.A.A. tournament at Madison Square Garden. Despite the now apparent zigzag series of upsets, the varsity has on the whole done well this season. There are still memorable events in the Blue and Gray bas- ketball picture to cheer about. Although, the reversals that we had in the season haxe witnessed the Hoya ' s playing like court wizards one night and poor Richards the next, there was a close parallel between the hot and cold temperature of the G.U. varsity five and the enthusiasm of the Hoya sport fans. In the opening game the Hilltoppers got off to an auspicious start ruining Idaho ' s ear- lier eastern swing. Featuring firehouse breaks and skillful passing, along with a sensational performance of accuracy from the foul line, the Hilltoppers soared to a memorable 59-52 victory at the Uline arena. . fter Idaho held a brief lead in the opening minutes, the Blue and Gray quintette caught fire and pushed in a substantial lead that was never bettered e -en though the rangy Vandals generated a terrific second-half comeback. The Hoya pass- ing and playmaking seemed magically effec- tive against the sluggish Vandal five. Thus a 59-52 victory sent the happy student body back to the Hilltop with bulging chests after as colorful a contest as this season could hope to see. After a fine start, Georgetown dropped a close game to the Nittany Lions of Penn State in the final seconds on a small Catholic University court which had been sold out two hours before game time. The Nittany Lions, termed the best zone defenses in the country, worked their zone to advantage on the small C.U. court, and they baffled a fight- ing Georgetown team which had had a great ELMER RIPLEY, Coach ARTHLIR B.ART0L02ZL Student Manager 155 Si m% ' M m- M- Ql|H V i Jl 1 : f Alii | p| ( UH.

Regaining the scoring power the ' had lost against Penn State the Hilltoppers piled up a decisix ' c triumph before b,547 fans at the Boston Garden, defeating Boston College 70- 56. Center Andy Kostecka that night garnered honors by stacking up fifteen points. From then on the win column held Georgetown ' s name every day, while our quintet polished off such teams as Nevada ' s " Wolf Pack " 55-47 on the Uline floor, Richmond 46-38 and Davis Elkins 70-3 1 . In the beginning of the new year Georgetown hit a snarl and ended up on the merciful end of a 52-41 defeat at the hands of North Carolina State, who later were in ited to the National Invitation Tournament at Madison Square Garden, b ' rom then on the going was tough, .After Georgetown had ID.AHO .ACIION! ! 156 topped Villanova we met George Washing- ton ' s unpredictable team and were defeated 45- 37 in a breath-taking inter-city battle. It was a bitterly disappointing evening for the Blue and Gray. .-Xfter stopping the Mariners of King ' s Point Merchant Marine Academy 53-38, the Hoya quintet found itself caught in a seemingly unshakable slump as it bowed to Saint Louis Uni ersity 52-42, after leading the Billikens at one time by an apparently safe margin of thirteen points. The following week our cold Hoyas moved up against the Blue Grass quintet of ' Western Kentucky who have reigned as champions of the Ken- tucky Intercollegiate Athletic Association for elexen consecutixe years, from 1Q32 through 1943. On January 23rd, under the tutelage of Coach Elmer Ripley, our highly touted Hoyas gave the top-notch Kentucky team a fast defeat. This same great Kentucky team had defeated Saint John ' s the previous night in New York ' s Madison Square Garden. Right on the heels of this highK ' rated court clash, the Hilltoppers journeyed to Buffalo, N. " ' ., to eke out a 5fc -b4 hair-raiser against the powerful Niagara University. Two nights later the Blue and Gray hoopsters won over a hard luck Scranton University team, defeating them bl-31. Returning to Uline, the Hoyas met the Fordham five which paid Georgetown back .ANDY KOSTECKA SCORES ANOTHER IN WESTERN KENTUCKY LiPSET BREMBS AND CORLEY DRESS FOR A BIG GAME for a gridiron defeat and hustled off to a 58-42 ictory. This badly tarnished the Hilltopper ' s reputation and literally knocked them out of a bid to the N.C.A.A. or the Invitation Tournament in Madison Square Garden, N. Y. The loss was discouraging and surprising after such splendid showing against previous compe- tition. For one night Georgetown played far below its usual power, and appeared to be in the doldroms. With examinations in progress the team flattened Catholic Unix ' ersity ' s Car- 157 dinals b5-28. The high cost of ictor - was seen in the serious injuries to team captain Dann ' Kraus. who sprained an ankle an l high scoring An l Kosiecka, who sulTcrci-l an c c injur . l oth were (.Georgetown ' s nominees for Ail-American. Lacking these two powerhouses, Cjeorgc- town I ' an up against the ' lA-rrapins of the Uni -ersity of Maryland and once again the Hoyas were turned back 55-4 ). Howexer, this time the Blue and Gray showed considerably more drive and fight. It was not their energetic dri e on the court that lost, but their in- ability to sink foul shots from the free throw line. Georgetown made only se en foul shots out of twenty all exening. Ha ing passed through their " slough of despond " the un- predictable Hoyas, who had achieved the reputation of defeating the best and losing to the poorer teams in the country, continued their energetic pace against topflight competi- tion. They polished off a strong Lasalle College fi e, who were on an eight-game win streak, to the overtime score of 65-59 at Convention Hall, Philadelphia. In retaliation for its defeat by Cjcorge Washington Universit ' earlier in the season the C Georgetown fi e, in an un lcr- (.iog rtile, avenged its earlier setback, winning b - a substantial score of hi -44. Thus, C George- tow n redeemed some of its lost prestige and left the District Championship completely in LJoubt. High scorer of the evening as usual was . ndy Kostecka, scoring 19 points, with Danny Kraus ' all around aggressive pla - adding considerably to the defeat of the out- played Colonials. A few nights later a plucky Scranton Uni- versity five ventured to Washington to play Georgetown. The lukewarm Hilltopper quin- tet had to put forth their best efforts in over- whelming this once previously defeated Scran- ton five 68-51 at Catholic University. Coasting along with a twenty-point lead at the 4-minute mark the Hoyas were forced onto the defen- si e. It was only by time running out and Ivostecka ' s 28 points that we pulled through. From then on the cry was " Beat Duquesne. " The Blue and Gray basketeers journeyed to McKeesport, Pa., to meet the highly star-stud- ded Dukes.

It is no supersecret that the Blue an l CJra - cagers went to McKeesport to win this match, for Duquesne had had a 17-game winning streak which Georgetown was out to break. Could we do it or not The final score wrote the answer. The Iron Dukes were too hot that night, the score reading 47-38 Our last opportunitN ' for an in ' itation to the N.C.A.A. went out the window and Du- quesne assured itself of a bid to the No. 3 District of the United States. Penn State, the victorious " tough zone " team, was next on the slate, — the Nittany Lions a difficult team to vanquish as we had found out when they defeated us earlier 40-37. On their home court their percentage of vic- tories was very high. Penn State was nearly unbeatable; and this we found out when we encountered their superior handling and their tight zone defense type of play. Nevertheless the Penn State team, even playing well-nigh in their own back yard suffered a stifling 50-42 defeat at the hands of our hoopster wizards. Again we had a second chance. Up to this point no team had beaten us twice and here was our second encounter with the Iron Dukes this time on our home court. In the start of the game, Georgetown trounced the no longer Iron Dukes of Du- quesne to the tune of 57-39 before a packed gym at Catholic University, while hundreds of people locked out because of a capacity crowd, shouted, " open the door. " As of 10:30 on March 4th, there was no major undefeated team in the country. In the opening moments the Blue and Gray Basketeers caught fire and pushed in a barrage of hoops from which the amazed Dukes never recovered.

He was then cooled off by the continuous fanning of handkerchiefs by the jubilant college crowd. Led by Kostecka, with his own olive drab handkerchief as a baton, this terminated in a technical foul being called on the coach because of his unsports- manlike attitude. After our victory over Duquesne we closed our season the following Thursday against a powerful Villanova team. We defeated them with only an injury to Andy Kostecka.

A crowd of 6,700 attended the game, one of the largest crowds on record at the armory. Looking back o er the season, the team is to be heartily congratulated. The schedule was probably as tough as any played through- out the country, and some of the finest teams were played in rapid-fire succession, without a breathing space between them. Lacking a home court, on which to play its home games, is a tremeni lous hani.lieap to any team; and most of the games we lost, were lost here in Washington. That the men on the team were giving their all was apparent in every game; and in some of them, many of our boys were obviously physically exha ' usted as they left the floor. There were times, too. when the fates were clearly against us. For game after game, points were already being counted, when suddenly the half-sunken ball would pop from th e basket. Top these handicaps with the injuries that plagued the team, when they were facing their toughest opponents, and the sterling calibre of the men who represented us on the court becomes quite apparent. A record of 19 wins and 7 losses is a credit to any team; and our boys reversed the decision against three of the teams that had previouslv beaten them. fllMI ' ' !, : BENICNI, POrOLlCCHlO, CORLEY 162 FORDHAM IN ACTION!

" DeBrebeuf to the newly-arrived missionaries. 165 166 FATHER JOHN DE BRf BEUF $J. 1649 |ORN at Conde-sur-Vire, near Lisieux, France, on March 25, 1593, John deBrebeuf may be called the father of all the Huron missions, for he labored first and longest among the Indians — a period of fifteen years. He was a man of tremendous physique, and for this he was admired, and perhaps envied by the Indians. But in spreading the gospel, his soul was refined in the crucible of affliction. He was accused of being a sorcet-er, the cause of an epidemic of smallpox ; and for this he received a severe beating with clubs from his beloved Hurons. However, it was at the hands of the warring Iroquois that he met his death through martyrdom at Forte Ste. Marie, near Midland, Ontario, on March 16, 1649. Some insight into the torture that he and his companion, Fr. Lalemant, S.J., endured may be gained from a description written five days later by Christophe Regnault, a donne — " I saw and touched their arms and legs, stripped of their flesh to the bones; the big blisters made by the boiling water; the burns caused by the flaming pitch belts and the red hot axes. ... I touched Fr. Brebeuf ' s scalped head and torn lips, and put my hand into the opening, through which their hearts had been torn from their bodies, and I knew that the story of their torments, told by fugitive prisoners, was true. " It may be said in truth that Brebeuf was a saint before he became a martyr; and that his privilege in Heaven is to wear the double crown of a Confessor and a Martyr. 167 Spring 168 L.NDER IHE TREE- 169 Spirit of the Reason Ml IKti long-imprisoned men releasei.1 I from the gloom and chill of winter ' s l -M dungeons, Georgetown students awake to the mood of spring.

Even the sombre cloaks of the Jesuits cannot restrain them from stealing a grateful glance at nature ' s rebirth as they pace the walks and read their daily office ; and as the days advance into ever-lengthening warmth, even the cloaks join the topcoats and snowfall of an unlamented winter ' s memory.

Traditionally tennis has al va s been a big sport on the Hilltop, and this year it has certainly li ' ed up to all traditions. When the call went out for Racket men in the fall of ' 4b the outlook wasn ' t too good, but by centering the team around Philippe Neff, who won all his scheduled matches, by the end of the year Father Gilee, the coach, was able to look back over a successful season. Phil surpassed all expectations and hopes when he reached the quarter finals of the N.C..A.,A. tournament held in Chicago. He and his teammates, Captain Charles Hagan, Tom Reynolds, Harry Kearney, Wally Sawch, l rank Cantwell, and Gordon Ryan, at the end of the fall season turned in an admirable record of wins and losses against teams along the Eastern Seaboard — Nine matches won; Four lost. This year while the netmen lost Captain Hagan, Phil Neff, and Gordon Ryan, their ranks were strengthened by the return of Joe Tewes and Charles Palms, well known on the Hilltop from pre-war teams. These men faced Yale, Princeton, Penn State and 12 other teams to really give punch to the call that tennis has returned to GU in great tradi- tional style. JOE TEWES and GERRY DWYER, Co-Captains 171 failing on the potomac O ' NE of the most colorful sporting highlights of this year was the or- ganization of the sailing team at Georgetown. The sport is not new here, how- e er. having been inaugurated back in 1937 when Georgetown participated in its first inter-collegiate sailing race. The pre-war Hoya teams were gaining national recognition when the war broke out; and the 1940 team lost only to Yale. Early this spring, a group of sailing en- thusiasts, an.xious to take advantage of the College ' s location on the Potomac, held their first meeting. The Georgetown Universit - Sailing Team was formed, and plans were made to purchase a fleet of eight new boats. The inexperienced racing members were later trained as crews on these boats. Before the ice had disappeared from the Potomac River, the Sailing Team had alreadv scheduled regattas for itself with such inter- collegiate sailing powers as Boston College, Holy Cross, the University of Pennsylvania, M.I.T., Princeton, the Midshipmen from An- napolis, and new team at George Washington. A regatta of ten races was held with George Washington University in March, and from those results were determined the skippers, all of whom had previously built up excellent racing records. B - the niiddle of May the team had out- sailed all competition; and, due to this fact, and the ' excellent teamwork of the skippers and their well-practiced crews, the George- town Sailing Club is considered as one of the top contenders for the National Intercolle- giate Yacht Racing Championship. The Moderator and experienced advisor for the future Commodores is Father Richard Law, S.J. 172 Maji Betiotions ■! ' rf4E month of Iay is devoted to Our I Lady at Georgetown in a very special Ml _ way. Each day at noon the men of Georgetown gather around the statue of Our Lady in the May shrine on the esplanade before the White Grax ' enor Building. There, after singing one of the beautiful May hymns, they recite Our Lady ' s Rosary. The service continues with a short talk gixen by the mem- bers of the Sodality and the Senior Class. The short but inspiring service concludes with the Litany of Loretto. These May devotions are dear to George- town men for a ery special reason, for it was here on our campus that May Devotions to Our Blessed Lady were introduced to the United States more than a hundred years ago. Begun in Rome at the Jesuit college there, toward the close of the seventeenth century, this beautiful practice was adopted at George- town in 1830 by the Sodality of Our Lady. A special feature of the month of May at Georgetown was the school-wide participation in the Archdiocesan demonstration in honor of Our Lady, a demonstration to the world and to ourselv es that devotion to Our Blessed Mother is not a sentimental thing but a firmly rooted, manly dedication to our Queen " " who Cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array.

The war years numbered the yearbook among its casualties, due to the depleted roster of students for whom a yearbook of ' e Domesd.-w ' s usual standard would ha e been too difficult an un- dertaking, and too heavy a financial burden. A word of explanation on the title of George- town ' s yearbook — ' " i ' e Domesd.ay Booke " — might be in order. The original Domesday Booke was a olume in which a census was kept; and it first appeared in England during the time of William the Conqueror. The Georgetown yearbook was originalK ' pub- lished by the (ieorgetown Eaw School and gi en its present title. .After some ears. publi- cation of the book was transferred to the col- lege students, and primarily, to the Senior Class.

The spacious dance floor, pulsing with the rhythm of the swa ing cou- ples, and ornate with blue-eyed innocence in billowing gowns, was like a drifting cloud borne along on the sweet strains of Richard Himber " s orchestra. Co-Chairmen Don Dona- hue and " Knobby " " Walsh, ably assisted b - John Mislan, Jerry McGrath, Peter Baker, Jimmy Mundell, Jake Loftus, Pete Desmond, Kemp Devereux, Jack Moloney and Ted Lom- bard, merited and received the abiding grati- tude of the Senior Class and their guests. The Tea Dance, held at the Kennedy-Warren the following afternoon, was highlighted with the music of Jack Morton. Feet were still nimble, and hearts were still aglow, despite the long hours of merriment the night before. With regret, in fact, the last melodic strains died away as the clock ticked seven. Came Sunday and the Lawn Party on the Campus — cool breezes, restful benches, refreshing punch and endless rounds of chatter all contributed to history and happy memories of the 1947 Sen- iors at home.

" Ladies and Gentlemen of the Graduating Classes: " ' ou step today onto a field of battle . . . There is w ar and famine in China . . . star ation ani.1 the threat of ci il war in India . , . murder in the Hol - Land . . . fear of invasion in Turke -, and hunger and fear in Greece. Undernourished Ital - is trembling on the erge of ci il w ar. Germany is famished . . . Hungary is being crushed .Austria is starving. Exhausted France is living in dread of her Communists. Great Britain is grimly bearing privation. In all the once-independent countries, which the Soviet Union now controls, there is hunger and terror . . . Day and night, the war potential of the So iet Union is being raised by a Five Year Plan that emphasizes, not the production of consumer goods, but the production of machines useful in war. Stalin and his associates . . . ha e chosen to declare themselves the enemies of all people, w ho li e in freedom. ithout the slightest moral scruple, they use to achieve their aims of conquest, the vast physical force they control, w henever the - judge that they can use it with impunity. . t the moment, they do not dare to make war against us . , , because for the moment the United States is far stronger than the Soviet Union and all its satellites. But, if e er they believe that they are the stronger, they will attack. Meanwhile ... by Fifth Columns, they are attempting to break down the resistance of all democratic peoples. Their spies and agents, fellow travellers and dupes, are acti e in all countries, including our own — in our great cities, in our labor unions, e en in our go ernment offices in Washington. Therefore, whether ' ou like it or not, you step today onto a field of battle. " On the issue of that battle depends the sur i al of Christian civilization. It has been your pri ilege, in this great Uni -ersity, to be taught by masters, who understand what things are true, honest, just, pure, lo el and of good report, " ou understand that truth is an exerflowing river proceeding from the eternity before the world w as made to the eternity beyond the bounds of time . . . ' ou know that the ethical teach- ings of religion have played the major part in lifting men from savagery to civilization, and that our Chris- tian civilization has been based on the doctrine that man as a son of God is of infinite alue, an end in him- self; that the state exists for man, not man for the state. . . . Just thirty ears ago, the Bolshevik revolu- tion in Russia brought into action against our world of Christian civilization a concept of man and state that was the exact opposite of the Christian concept . . . This idolatry of the state has produced, not inereK ' savage attacks on religion, and the extinction of per- sonal liberty and democracy in the areas controlled b - the Soviet Union, but also total immorality in inter- national relations . . Faced with these facts, what shall we do? First, remember the way to peace is in Christ ' s words ; Seek ye first the kingdom of God . . . and all things shall be added unto you. ' Second . . we must make the Russian people comprehend that we stand for their freedom no less than our own . . . they must be our final allies. Thirul , , . in the meantime keep the Soviet Union constantly confronted by our superior force. Fourth, carrv ' out in effective action our announced policy of helping democratic states to resist the assaults of Soviet imperialism. Fifth ... the Gov- ernment of the United States should persuade the British and French Governments to join it in action to create a European Federation ... At Christmas, 1Q45, the Holy Father, Pius XII, wrote these words: The American people have a genius for splendid and unselfish action, and into the hands of America, God has placed the destinies of afflicted humanity. ' The hands of America, Gentlemen, are your hands. Whether order or death w ill come out of the moral and physical chaos, in which mankind is reeling, w ill depend in large measure on your generation . . ' ou will need the courage that comes to those w ho have made their peace vv ith God . , . you will need to follow, wherever it may lead, the eternal light that has come to you through the lile and teachings of Christ. . . .

' c-.gT ' V EVER in the hirLory of the " Hill- I W ' P ' " " ' more unusual Senior pl r . carried on the traditions of George- town. Veterans, non-veterans, pre-war George- towners, transfer students were assimilated and united in a single class and they took their place with assurance at the head of the first post-war Georgetown student bod -. Old and new Georgetown men of e er ' age were represented in the Senior Class, and the maturity gained b - these men during the war was evident in classroom and extra- curricular activities in which they partici- pated. The earnestness and confidence of their endeavors in every acti it - of the university helped to make their reputations as leaders recognized throughout the campus. The Sen- iors numbered well over one hundred; but its influence in this year ' s activities and ac- complishments was stronger than that number would indicate. Due to the necessity of formulating an immediate plan of student activities, the Yard President conducted the elections of the Sen- ior Class during the latter part of the summer. When the first officers were elected, the Seniors began a full schedule of classes and a hectic year of acti ities. The reorganization of many clubs and groups which were temporarily sus- pended luring the war was completed in a business-like manner. Among the special activities sponsored by the Senior Class were the traditional Senior- I ' reshman Tea Dance and the Senior Ball. FRANCIS R. BADOLA TO 8615 Ft. Hamilton Pkwy. Brooklyn, N.Y.
