I am proud and happy to see a group of young men successfully complete our course of study and round out with us those very significant adolescent years from fourteen to eighteen. But I truly am concerned at seeing you young men leave us now. You step out with such self-con¬ fidence, little knowing what terrific problems lie ahead. You think you have learned a lot, but actually you know so little. You feel ready to meet any new emergency, but really so many decisions have been made for you here. You think you can easily direct your social, moral and physical well-being, but, after all, these phases of your life up to now have been pretty well channeled for you. Although we have great faith in your ability to achieve, and know that the young men who have gone out before you have done so, yet we don ' t just set you adrift. We help you launch your ship. We assist you across the shore breakers, watch how you learn to handle tiller and sail until we are sure you are steering straight across calm or stormy seas to the haven of your desire. Just now the seas ahead are indeed stormy. Never before, I am sure, has our world been so convulsively shaken as it is right now. We always know little enough about the world we live in, but we know much less about the world immediately ahead. What a challenge the future presents to you I You and thousands and tens of thousands of other young men being graduated from our high schools today will have to see this challenge through. You will live, indeed, to see " One World. " You will live to see the speed of transportation, the development of new power and energy, the re¬ gard for human welfare, international relationships advance to a degree never dreamed of a generation ago. 0, boys, don ' t stop studying, don ' t stop thinking, don ' t stop having visions, don ' t be content until you are a master in the area of your life ' s work. It will be easy to throw up your hands and quit. Find within yourselves the sustaining arms that will hold those hands until the victory is won. It will be easy to grow cynical and skeptical. It will be easy to grow selfish and self-centered, but remember what Paul said, " No man liveth to himself alone. " Our love for you, our desire for your happiness, our faith in your determination to succeed in your chosen work, our confidence in your integrity, and our belief in your desire to serve well in your homes and in your communities abide always! Follow gladly where you must in order to learn, assume leadership where you are conscious of power, give of yourselves where that giving will bring well-being to others. God bless you and keep you.

Dear Stephen Girard: Today we leave Girard College, our school and our home for the past ten years. With reluctance we pass from the Chapel for our last time as students. It has at last come our time to render to you our thanks for the many benefits we have received at your hands. We know, Mr. Girard that the words in our hearts can never be expressed adequately, words telling you how much we appreciate all that you have made possi¬ ble for us. We are fortunate that we can leave the protecting arm of this wonderful in¬ stitution and go forth into a world not locked in combat, but once more peaceful. However we will still be confronted with many vexing problems, but we have been trained to face these with grim determination to overcome all obstacles. You have made a superior education possible for us and have inculcated among us the ambition to hold our own at all times. We will not fail you! We thank you, Mr. Girard, for giving us this chance to acquire so much good out of life in your school, especially for showing us that indispensable possession in this life known as friendship. Here at Girard are boys of many racial extractions, but there is no special creed or racial prejudice felt among us. We are all Americans in a truly broad democratic institution, striving to make of ourselves better citizens and better Girardians. Had we not entered Girard ten long years ago, we could not now realize the fact that it would mean the forfeiting of many of the finer things in life. We would not have had the opportunity to develop ourselves physically to the point we enjoy today. Nor would we have had the chance to strengthen our appreciation of music, art, and literature, which all help to inspire a well balanced man. Upon departure from Girard, the Class of January 1946 realizes that there are no words suitable to express our deepest and most gracious thanks for all you have done for us. You have given us an outstanding education; you have impressed upon us the necessity for clean and honest traits and habits; you have given us the opportu¬ nity to make of ourselves something few schools really achieve. You have made us men!

When we say " so long " to " Lou, " it will be sad because he has become a friend and pal to everyone. " Lou " was elected the most popular fellow in the Class, but not because of this did we select him to lead us through our final term. It was because of his interest and efficiency in class affairs. Don ' t forget us! We ' ll always re¬ member you. Dear Classmates, At last we find that it is our turn to say good-bye to the " temple on the hill, " but it is not without heavy hearts. We have waited a long time for the day when we shall walk down the aisle for the last time, but now that we are almost in that position the full value of precious things we are leaving behind is fully appreciated. Friend¬ ships that have developed among us during the last ten years of solid companionship are everlasting, Memories of years gone by now return. As one author put it in the book " Red Blossoms, " " Few people have learned the art of collecting memories; they collect old china and prints and books—all good and pleasant but frogile and per¬ ishable. But happy memories are indestructible possessions which nothing can take from us. " Such is the result of our life here at Girard. Our happy memories, along with the sad ones, will cling to us forever. Teachers and advisers have been our good guides for the past ten years, but now their guiding hands show us to the open gate beyond which lies the world in which we shall spend the rest of our years. We owe a debt to Girard; in that we will not fail. As Theodore Roosevelt once said under similar conditions, " Let us not pray for a light burden, but a strong back.

Intellectually speaking, Dan is " tops. " We can ' t even begin to imagine him as anything less than a bank president. We ' ll never forget how easily he used to glide over the hurdles on the track team. Good luck, Dan. The " Hum " won ' t forget you; neither shall we. JOHN T.

Hoppy go lucky yet consc.enf.ous and sincere. That may sound just a little funny, but that ' s a very good description of " Bean.

BLEWIS (Billi Shaft, Pa. Bom: October 17, 1928 Course: General and Accounting Honors: Manager of Candy Trade, S-l, In Bill we find good looks, personality, and industriousness. His force of mind helped him push through many obstacles in an inspir¬ ing way. To Bill we wish the best of everything. FRANCIS J. BROOKS (Mertle) 153 Schooley Street, Exeter, Pa. Born: April 2, 1929 Course: Academic and Stenography Honors: Guidon of Co. C, S- l, S-2; Sergeant in Battalion; Activities Night, ' 44, ' 45; Baseball Manager, ' 45; Basketball, ' 44. Behind Mertle ' s unassuming smile we find a sincere classmate. The outstanding characteristic in Mertle is his ability to differentiate between work and play. We know he ' ll continue to be an outstanding citizen. JOHN BERGER (Johnnyl 410 Railroad Street, Jersey Shore, Pa. Born: January 3, 1928 Course: General and Accounting Honors: Track, ' 44, ' 45; Assistant Manager of Candy Trade, S-l; Life Scout. Johnny surely is a lion among the ladies, a friend of everyone, and a real " hummer. " Always ready with a witty remark or a friendly smile, he is a superb pal. Life would have been very dull without h.m and his knack of creating a happy atmosphere. RALPH BERGER I Ralph) 128 S. Peach Street, Philadelphia. Born: October 12, 1927 Course: General and Bookkeeping Honors: Color Trade; Referee in Building Soccer, S-2. Despite his absence from varsity teams, Ralph is a vigorous participant in sports. The quiet but likeable Ralph will be remembered as the ardent Detroit fan, the typical American follower of sports, and the excellent example of sportsmanship. (Earintljimt [ 20 ] January JOHN D.

Wherever you see a basketball, " Chip " is probably not far behind. The tallest in the Class, " Chip ' s " stature is well adapted to basket¬ ball. His outstanding characteristic is perseverance. He has had some trying times, but he always comes up smiling. Good luck, " Chip, " you deserve all that comes your way. CARL W. COLIN Hick t Columbia, Pa. Born: October 31, 1927 Course: General and Auto Shop Honors: Baseball, ' 45; Soccer, ' 45; Sergeant-major in Battalion, S-2; Orchestra, 1-1 to S-l; Student Council, 1-2, S-2; Treasurer of Student Council, S-2; Athletic Council, S-l, S-2. There aren ' t many handsome boys who are athletically inclined and yet do a good job in their school work. However, " Hick " has all these qualities His ability in baseball will long be remembered. Although quite timid among girls, he hos had little difficulty making friends in Girard. VICTOR DAMIANI (Creep) 1613 S. 18th Street, Philadelphia. Born.

" Vic " is a regulor guy. His athletic prowess and congenial, carefree manner have prompted his classmates to name him the most friendly boy in the Class. His influence will always be an asset. MELVIN T. DAVIS (Dave) 2233 N. Franklin Street, Philadelphia. Born: December 15, 1928 Course: Academic and Carpentry Honors: Gym, ' 44- ' 45, ' 45- ' 46; Sergeant in Battalion, S-l, S-2; Senior Life Saving Certificate, S-l. If Dave ' s ability as a gymnast were to decide his future, we know he would be a success. Dave can always be depended upon to help whenever needed. A good friend and a loyal classmate, he will long be remembered. 1946 [ 21 ] (ttortntljtan JOSEPH V. DICAMPLI (Joel 974 N. 66th Street, Philadelphia.

Born: February 26, 1928 Course: Academic and Drafting Honors: Soccer, ' 45; Lieutenant in Battalion, S-2. Wyolusing ' s contribution to our Class is quiet, easy-going Ed. Al¬ though somewhat reticent, his timely-executed sarcasm is always becoming and pertinent to the occasion. Ed is one fellow who will certainly keep the world afire.

A block off the old chip; that ' s Pete. Always thinking of others, he will always be held in our highest esteem. Indispensable in the Electric Shop now, Pete will be an electrical engineer hard to surposs. WILLIAM EVANS (Bill) 197 Brown Street, Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Born: April 19, 1928 Course: General and Machine Shop Honors: Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Life Scout; Sergeant Quartermaster, J-2 to S-l, and Lieutenant, S-2, in Battalion. You might say that Bill has a contagious likableness, and the Class will verify that fact. People just naturally like Bill because of his ex¬ treme friendliness. We ' re go ng to miss that sonorous laugh echoing through the corridors. Here ' s to you, Bill EDWIN L. FINKEL Ed) Valedictorian 4131 Cambridge Street, Philadelphia.

Ed excelled in the scholastic program. Being a diligent worker, he overcame many seemingly difficult tasks with ease. How can we forget Ed as an excellent pianist, whose music was enjoyed by all? We know he will continue to do os good work after he leaves Girard. Great success to our C. P. A. 1946 fflnrititlitan [ 23 ] BERNARD J. FISHER (Bernie) 3117 W. Clifford Street, Philadelphia. Born: November 26, 1927 Course: General and Carpentry Honors: Referee in Building Soccer, S-2. Always willing to do his bit, Bernie is a sure success. Although he is a consistent joker, he knows when to be serious. His neat appear¬ ance and friendly, gullible manner will not be forgotten for a long time. a GEORGE A. FREYER (George 2705 W.

The Dramatic Club will sorely miss the excellent performances George gives. He is the sociolite " ployboy " of the class. George ' s pleasing personality is o great asset ond so ore his performances in magic. ROBERT GRANT (Bob) 2028 S. 23d Street, Philadelphia. Born: April 8, 1928 Course: General and Machine Shop Honors: Activities Night, ' 44; Pan American Day Celebration, ' 44 Bob is a placid, reticent, sincere classmate. His perseverance is admired by all. Another potential athlete, Bob ' s stature interfered, but we ' ll be waiting for the good news of his undoubted success. THOM A. GRAY (Tom) 3716 Bouvier Street, Philadelphia. Born: December 29, 1928 Course: Academic and Electricity Honors: Dramatic Club, J-2; Activities Night, ' 44; Echelon Platoon. Tom was by far the Class ' wittiest member. Being able to say the right thing at the right time gives him this distinction Here ' s hoping that the world will appreciate him as we have.

Born: August 16, 1928 Course: Academic and Drafting Honors: Sergeant in Battalion, S-2; Echelon Platoon, ' 43; Senior Life Saving Certificate. Bob is the cute member of the Class. His never-say-die spirit made him a notable figure. Bob ' s wide-awake attitude, coupled with his natural intelligence, has left a deep impression with us. DANIEL J.

His leadership of the Student Council especially reminds us of this, but his good looks and clever way with people have also attracted no end of girl friends and social followers. There ' ll be no way for him but the high road to success. EDWARD F. KISKO (Big Edi 259 Chandler Ave., Johnstown, Pa.

" Mole, " our prize, never has a sorrowing moment. Such a happy dis¬ position is very rare. His conscientious studying will lead him to great success. " Mole ' s " cheerful personality helped him become the friend of all who knew him. Others should find him as pleasant as we did. ROBERT J. MAROTTA i Bob 1837 S. 19th Street, Philadelphia.

" Ade " instituted many ingenious ideas in the " News " which will be adopted by many succeeding editors. Along with his work on the paper, he proved his worth on the " Corinthian " staff. It is easy to see from the quality of the " News " how " Ade " stands scholastically. His association with the fairer sex sidelined his other activities. He ' ll succeed in anything he undertakes.

D, S-2; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Soccer, ' 43, ' 45; Gym, ' 43, ' 45; Echelon Platoon, ' 45. Despite being restricted from most activities around the College, Dick has proven his worth. A jump ahead of everyone at billiards, and two jumps ahead when a genial smile is called for, Dick will give Lady Luck a run for her money. 19 46 She fflnrintljiatt [ 27 ] THE CLASS OF 3 bi fflurintbimt January NUARY 1946 (Enrtntl iatt [ 29 ] WILLIAM H.

When Girard boasts about her writers, Jim ' s name will always be mentioned. He was never the scholarly type, but he distinguished himself with the pen. As far as general knowledge is concerned, Jim is " tops. " There aren ' t many questions that can stump him. We ' re sure he ' ll be able to solve the riddle of life with ease •DONALD B.

The electrical genius of the Class, " Bridge " is undoubtedly heading for success. His knack for the Edison side of things is uncanny.

When things seemed dull or uninteresting, we could always look to " Whifie " for o good lough. His bright, witty personality was pro¬ jected across the footlights successfully for many a Girard audience. Socially he is a valuable asset, and his loss as on outstanding magician will certainly be felt. 19 46 (Eorintfjtan [ 33 ] JOHN RICHARD WILLIAMS (Willi 472 Wirth Ave., Akron, Ohio.

Re¬ member the first dance in J-l? Though somewhat awkward and slow at the out¬ set, the affair wound up in true Jan., ' 46, style. Although a rather crude, bashful, unpolished group of boys, we managed to acquire a reasonable amount of grace and dignity before the Swing Band signed off. Bill Otto walked off with the elimination prize in our debut at Girard socials. Who will ever forget the huge success of the J-2 " hop ' ? This affair was conducted wit h the Christmas theme, and with Harry Lusher stealing the show at the intermission. It was this dance that found the Class of January, 1946 well equipped to enact their semi-annual dance manners. Basically Chesterfieldian, we swept the young maidens from their feet. While on the floor, the fellows were the essence of gentility. In spite of this the punch bowl had to be filled four times. S-l. Ah.It was here that our Class really found its feet socially. A coke and pretzel party was No. 1 of the Jan., ' 46 firsts. A skating party quickly followed suit and we took the lead in the race for social honors. By this time the fame of our successes had spread, and, come March 23, the whole campus was breathlessly awaiting the out¬ come of our third " hop. " The tremendous success of our social affairs is due to the tireless efforts of our capable staff of hosts and hostesses. Miss McGhee, Miss Feld, Miss Boyd, Mr. Macy, and Mr. Dunkel will never be forgotten as the ones who really pushed the dances over the top. Our thanks again to this splendid group who showed us many of the best times of our lives at Mr. Macy ' s home in the country. Farewell to our good times at Girard! It was here that we got our start; it was here that we learned to conduct ourselves with ease and grace becoming a gentleman. Then came the Commencement Dance, the highlight of all our affairs. The memories of that dance are the freshest. This thrill of a lifetime, three hours in length, seemed like three minutes under the ecstatic loveliness of the evening. [36 j (Cnriutljiau January January ' 46 In Retrospect 1946 [ 37 ] (Slip fflormtljimt Mr White Mrs. Zarello Mr. Zarella After ten laborious years we finally came to " the house around the corner. " In too short a time, five months, Allen Hall went from a thought of the future to one of the past. Those five months, however, were worth waiting for. The enjoyment and re¬ laxation of our earlier years at the College were left far in the dust compared with those enjoyed in Allen Hall. Its coming is enthusiastically greeted by all, not because of its many privileges but because it is here that scattered classmates are brought to¬ gether. A more concrete companionship may be made with fellows occasionally met in previous years. It is here that the expression, " Home Sweet Home, " first became a reality at the " Hum. " This last joy of adolescent years gave us our first acquaint¬ ance with individualism in following our daily activities. Our social activity was greatly increased in Allen. The never-to-be-forgotten house parties were something to look forward to and something to reminisce over with ecstasy. Tuesday night was one to which everyone looked. The delightful chats and refreshments, which only Mr. and Mrs. Zarella can plan, made that particular evening stand out in our daily activities. Our only regret is that we were unable to associate with Mrs. " Z " more than we did. She spent most of her time in the In¬ firmary on important duty. In addition to these two swell people we were fortunate enough to have as their assistant Mr. James White. Always ready to help anyone at any time, Mr. White will long be cherished in our memories. His timely refreshments made Mr. White ' s room a frequent joy. In saying farewell to Allen, it is like leaving a part of our daily life behind. We aren ' t able to express adequate appreciation of Mr. and Mrs. Zarella and Mr. White, but here we say " Thank You! " for our most enjoyable, most entertaining and most educational semester at Girard College. ®bf llnnutlnuu January [«] -k 1946 ®I?r (Enruttljtan [ 41 ] Interior of Chapel ®ijr (Harintijian January [42 j THE GLEE CLUB On looking back over the years and activities at Girard, one outstanding memory is our last year in the " Gleekie. " Those Sunday morning processionals, Thursday night rehearsals, the Glee Club " hop, " and, most of all, the Christmas Concert. The melo¬ dies were superb, especially the beautiful Handel ' s " Halle ' u.ah Chorus, " from the Messiah. The Christmas Concert is one of the most inspiring and unforgettable events of the whole year. Since this program was introduced nearly thirty ears ago, none has been more diversified and better performed than that of the past month. The G!e? Club and Junior Choir sang particularly well. The Choir ' s " Now Let Every Tongue, " " In Thee Is Gladness, " " A Carol for Christmas " (by Mr Banks), " Let All Things Now Living, " and the unsurpassed " Halleluiah Chorus " will long be remembered b, all who had the privilege to hear them so well sung. The Glee Club made a very wise choice when they elected Bob Kensinger to lead us through our last term. With his guidance this organization witnessed a really out¬ standing season. Not to be forgotten are the other members of a very capable staff As Vice-President, " Hap " Irvin performed his du¬ ties remarkably well Completing the executive staff are Secretary " Hank " Ray and Libra¬ rian Pete Evanoff. To Mr. Harry C. Banks, Jr., and Miss Juliet Stacks we give our heart¬ felt thanks for all they have done for us in music. They have not only taught us to sing, but have also given us a sense of appreciation we shall never forget. 1946__ [ 43 ] “tyou ' )ntayi te John Berger. Ralph Berger. Bill Blewis.

This record enabled the " Ottomen " to enter the city championship playoffs. Friends Select was neatly disposed of, but the final game was a bitterly contested one with Northeast High. After two extra periods, Northeast emerged a 4 to 3 victor on a penalty kick in the dying moments of the last extra period; Our class contributed 14 soccermen to the highly victorious soccer team. Prominent on the field was the outstanding work of Dan Hussey, who captained the team. Sparking the line was " Hap " Irvin, who scored 6 of our 51 tallies to our opponents 5. Also serving very capably on the line were Ed Parulski, chosen on the All-Scholastic team, John Williams, Vic Domiani, and Dick Micklos. A whole host of players made up the backfield. Among them, " Hank " Ray, " Hick Colin, Dick Edsell, Bob Grater, Pete Evanoff, Clem Sypulski, and Dan Metroka. Under the net were two capable rosin-handed goal- tenders, Dave Rosen and Lou Jones. Serving the team very well in the roll of manager was the one and only " Chip " Chappell. BASKETBALL—The fine record of last year ' s team, which will probably prevail this season, was due largely to the capable play of Dan Hussey, " Chip " Chappell, Lou Jones, Dick Edsell, Vic Damiani, ■and " Mertel " Brooks. Don Hussey ' s 28 points in the Bok Vocational game was the outstanding accom¬ plishment of the 1944-1945 season. " Chip " Chappell ' s fine under-the-basket play, splendid pivoting, and ingenious playmaking, was undoubtedly a great asset to the team. Lou Jones, our defensive " gem " , handled his end of the court in true Jones fashion. The loss of these three and others, who have great possibilities, will- be keenly felt in the middle of the season. BASEBALL—Eight wins, three losses, and one tie, is a record not to be sneezed at. Bright in the limelight was " Hick " Colin, our outstanding contribution to this club. His superb pitching would give Feller competition. Winding up the season in superb fashion, " Hick " had four victories with no losses. Two of these four games were no-hit-no-run games, and one a one-hit-no-run gome. On the receiving end of the ball were two very capable catchers, Clem Sypulski and Ed Parulski. In our $100 infield was found capable batman, Vic Damiani. TRACK—Sixty-two points earned by one man in one season is quite a feat among the " thinclads. " Long-legged, versatile Dan Metroka accomplished this by running the hurdles and participating in the broad jump. Also sharing high honors were the long distance men: Bill Snyder, " Doc " Dougherty, and George Strawbridge. Doing equally well in the shot put and hurdles were Dick Edsell and Bob Grater. SWIMMING—Though we have only one member of the " chlorine kids " among us, Ray Kaplan is representing the class very well. Prominent in the 100-yard freestyle, and 200-yard relay, we expected and received much success. GYMNASTICS—Although our ocrobotical geniuses of the bar and mat have not proved exceptionally good since its organization three years ago, we are hoping for much better luck in the future. Several members of the varsity will be leaving with our class. Among them: Joe Di Campli, Mel Davis, Lee Vorndran, " Chick " Di Cicco, and Bob Kensinger.

He was ably assisted by Vice-President Bob Grater Secretary Dan Metroka. and Treasurer Jack Clarke. It is to these leaders that we are thankful for our many enjoyable social affairs and other class activities. Bob Kensinger was the compe¬ tent leader of the Student Council. The Class was very well represented in the Athletic Council and the Conference Committee by Carl Colin and Lee Vorndran. In his ca¬ pacity as President of the National Honor Society, Dan Metroka performed his tasks exceedingly well, particularly by living up to the high standards set by that organiza¬ tion. The Girard News completed a very successful term due mainly to the untiring efforts of its Editor-in-chief, Adrian Marshall. •pttbliratuins " The pen is the tongue of the mind. " Therefore it is necessary to employ capable men to demonstrate it conclusively. This has been done.

Not to be forgotten is the Editor of the Maga¬ zine, Jim Remaley, who has risen to heiqhts in the field of literature. Supporting Jim in his literary endeavors were " Bigs " Rine, George Strawbridge. «°bert Marotta, George Freyer, Ed Finkel, and a host of other contributing editors " Ade " Marshall and his two very capable assistants, Bob Kensinger and " Hap " Irvin, teamed up to make this term ' s newspaper one of the best in form, accuracy, and variety since the News originated. To Professor Foust and to Mr. MacGregor, the News and the Magazine staffs express their sincere gratitude for invaluable aid so generously rendered. Climaxinq a term of literary success is our Corinthian To Dr. Haskell, Mr. Heck, and the Print Shop, who have helped so generously in compiling it, our literary adieu at Girard, we express our deepest thanks. 1946 (Eoritttljtan [ 49 ] iBanit anil (fDrrliefitra Under the direction of a group of very talented musicians from our Class the .Band and Orchestra have completed a very successful term Captained by Jim Kear¬ ney, the Band has been an asset to Girard. Sharing the limelight equally well is a group of very capable officers. Heading the trumpet section is the very talented First Lieu¬ tenant of the Band, Bob Marotta. The Second Lieutenants are " Hank " Ray, an out- Istanding artist on the oboe, and George Strawbridge, leader of a much improved bass section. Last, but not least, is the Supply Sergeant, a master of the bells, Ed Finkel ■ The Orchestra has risen to new heights under the able direction of Student Leader Dan Metroka. Also waving a very cultured baton is Assistant Student-Leader Lou Kuhnle. Doing equally as well is First Lieutenant Joe Marion These fellows, all violinists, will be sorely missed. This item would not be complete without a word of appreciation of Messrs. Fry, Pfouts, and Morrison. Without their help we could not have enjoyed one of the finer things in life—music. National ftjnnor nrirlii Fulfilling the four necessary requisites for admission to the Girard Chapter of the Natonal Honor Society, eight members of our class were distinauished. Cicero once said, " Everything splendid is rare, and nothing is harder to find than perfe ' - tion. " We may not have found perfect personalities, but we have some very splendid ones. Three of them were discovered in J-2 when Bob Kensinger. Ed Parulski and Dan Metroka were elected to the Society. In the S-l term Jack Clarke was found to b- outstanding. Some of the elite were inducted in S-2, when Bob Whitehouse, " Chollie " Grater, Ade Marshall, and Lou Kuhnle were selected. The Girard Chapter was led very ably in our Senior term by Dan Metroka, i assisted by Bob Kensinger as Vice-President and Ed Parulski,, Secretary We know that our members will live up to the four principles of the Society ’ Character, Service, Leadership, and Scholarship. (Undpt (tops As the Cadet Corps marched up the road, it was noticeable that for the first time in the history of the Corps an undergraduate was its student commander. The distinc¬ tion belonged to Cadet Major Lou Jones. His very capable assistant, Bob Kensinger served wonderfully well in the capacity of Captain Adjutant. Attaining the rank of Captain Dan Hussey proved himself worthy of the position by leading Co: B in a suc¬ cessful ternr He had the aid of First Sergeant " Tick " Toscam. Lieutenants Bob Grater ete tvanoff and First Sergeant Paul DiCicco had much to do with the superb han¬ dling of Co. C. Keeping Co. A among the leaders was accomplished by the competent goer ship of Lieutenant " Hap " Irvin and First Sergeant Don Rine. Lieutenant Biil Otto and First Sergeant Bill Evans worked diligently to raise Co. D from its fourth-place position The difficult task of preparing recruits for the Cadet Corns was performed well by Lieutenants Tom Rostron and Dick Edsell. Important members of the Color Guard were Color Sergeant Clem Sypulski, Sergeant Quartermaster Ed Parulski, and Sergeant Major " Hick " Colin. We cannot leave Girard without paying tribute to Lieutenant-Colonel James M Hamilton, whose guidance has made the Cadet Corps an outstanding organization. 1946 3 tjp (Eflrintljtan [ 51 ] 7de Same Ctd Stony The " hummer ' s” life is all routine, From six to ten, and in between; Of this grind this poem will tell you, l sincerely hope it doesn’t quell you.

But that is not your good fortune. Immediately beyond our walls you will find a nation divided by economic warfare between industry and labor; a nation without a clear-cut social or economic program; a nation with a cautious, vacillating foreign pol¬ icy, and beyond, a world of jealousy, fear, mistrust, and competitive struggle. On the other hand, to every man and to every nation it is perfectly clear that only by inter¬ national understanding, world unity, and world organization can our civilization be saved. Into this dilemma you are thrust — thrust to find your vocational opportunity and to assume your responsibilities of active citizenship. How we hope that here at Girard you have gained a goodly measure of knowl¬ edge, sufficient vocational preparation, the power of calm and suspended judg¬ ment, and enough insight into our national and world problems to be a stable, dependable, helpful member of society from the day you leave us! Truly, we have come to have a deep affection for you as individuals, and we want you to be happy in the new relationships you now assume. But your mere hap¬ piness won ' t satisfy us. We want you to be useful. We want you to set for yourselves high standards of conduct and achievement and to live up to them. We want your families to realize the hopes they have centered in you. We want each of you eventu¬ ally to win the confidence and love of a worthy young woman, with whom you will es¬ tablish a home typifying the very best ideals of our social life. As the years go by, we want each of you to be looked upon as one whose judgment and advice are sought when problems and crises arise; one who in unselfish devotion will answer the call of the community in its many relationships and be recognized as embodying the attributes of a citizen in a society committed to the ideals of democracy. We shall not forget your contributions to Girard College. The institution truly has profited by your being a part of it. We now await your return to the College in the years to come, bringing with you a record of splendid achievement. Cordially and sincerely, D.

" — Buck (Earintljiau June Our (Header W eae£ zctar DEAR MR. GIRARD: Today we leave Girard College. As we reluctantly pass through the portals of the Chapel for the last time, we realize that we are leaving behind us our home, our guiding hand, and our provider. Ten short years ago you admitted us, forlorn and fatherless, to this great institution. Today we leave as men, but with grateful hearts and cherished memories of Girard, our boyhood blessing. We go forth into the world, each of us equipped with a sound and comprehensive education. Here at Girard we have acquired not only a basic knowlege of facts and figures but also the ability to work with our hands. The extensive vocational training we have received will serve us in good stead in the business of making a living. Here we have learned to appreciate the finer things of life. You have endowed us with rich opportunities in the field of music, both vocal and instrumental. We have daily had the privilege of listening to our organ, one of the finest instruments of its kind in the country, the resonant chords of which set the pace for our final departure. A true appreciation of the masterpieces of art has also been inculcated in our minds and hearts. The broad athletic program offered us here at Girard can be equalled by few schools in the city. The many spacious playgrounds, the abundance of equipment, and the staff of experienced instructors have enabled us to develop sound bodies and a sense of sportsmanship. We shall ever cherish the principles of high morality and brotherly tolerance which have been so thoroughly instilled in our minds. We have lived together as brothers— Catholic, Protestant, and Jew alike. For these and all other benefits, which are too numerous to mention at this time, we are sincerely thankful to you, Stephen Girard. But our gratitude is enshrined in our hearts and cannot be set down in words. As it has been truly said that " Actions speak louder than words, " we shall exemplify our heartfelt gratitude by our future acts as former Girardians and as citizens of our country. We go forth today highly resolved to uphold the exalted name and high ideals of Girard College. With all sincerity. CLASS OF JUNE 1946 ffltfrintijhm CLASS ADMINISTRATION J-l J-2 Vincent Brennan.

Once again the annual Senior trip to Washington was resumed. The many interesting places that we visited in the capital city will never be forgotten. Witnessing the Supreme Court in ac¬ tion, seeing the huge Pentagon Build¬ ing and the famous Lincoln Memor¬ ial, browsing through the Congres¬ sional Library, the White House, and finally the Capitol Building itself are only a few of the privileges we can recall vividly. This trip was truly an unforgettable experience. January 23, ELECTION OF CLASS OFFICERS. The best qualified men in our Class were nominated to hold the executive positions for the final term. The choosing of officers to represent us was extremely difficult. Some voters handed in blank ballots, unable to decide one way or the other. When the votes were counted, the elections were very close. Those whom the Class elected were our President, " Mac " McGuire; the Vice-President, " Buz " Brennan; Joe Marchese, Secretary; and Dick Frey, Treasurer. February 4, MOVING TO ALLEN HALL. With the same meticulous care that a painter uses to complete a fine piece of art, we longingly crossed the dates from the calendar, anticipating the day when we would move to Allen . All our belongings had been packed days in advance. The time finally arrived. With overwhelming complacency we strode up the Main Road, our arms filled with personal belongings. When we finally entered " the hotel " and placed everything in order, we looked about us and heaved a happy sigh, " Ah, what a life this will be! " And truly it has been. February 9, SOCIAL SEASON COMMENCES. Under the excellent guidance of Miss McGhee, our social program expanded very rapidly. Not only did our dances turn out more successfully and pleasantly, but arrangements were made for us to attend regular outside dances. Many of us remember going to the Germantown Junior Canteen for three or four successive weeks. The Senior Class was invited to a dance given by the Girls High School. Kensington High for Girls and the Lansdowne Century Club also asked us to dances. This was undoubtedly a great step forward. February 13, VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS GET UNDER WAY. The middle of February found many organizations already started in their work after the various officers were elected. The Dramatic Club was engaged in its try-outs. The Band (Corinthian [ 30 ] June began practicing " Rienzi, " while work on THE CORINTHIAN and the NEWS was begun. The Glee Club was gowned, the Student Council had its luncheon at Holland ' s. March 8, SENIOR DANCE. Our class dance came quite early this term, but proved to be by far our best dance. The decorations were particularly striking due to the vigorous efforts of our new house member, Mr. Swigart, and his committee. Twirling to the music of our much improved swing band, very few of our socialites observed the " stay six inches apart " rule. Including many novelty features, such as balloon and bonnet dances, the affair wound up under the pale light of an im¬ provised moon. Many thanks to our hosts and hostesses for planning such a won¬ derful affair. March 24, THE DAVIS TEA. Our class had the unique privilege of attending a tea giveh by Mr. and Mrs. Davis, the first since the beginning of the war. To brighten the affair that afternoon, Mr. Davis established a precedent by suggesting that we invite our girl friends. Although one of our first ventures in higher social circles, our charming hostess, Mrs. Davis, put us entirely at ease. We enjoyed this very much as it enabled us to meet our administrators in a social way. March 30, FIRST HOUSE PARTY. The first of four house parties v as held today. These parties are generally well attended and afford quite a pleasureful get-together. April 6, ARMY DAY PARADE. The Girard Band and Cadet Corps were invited to parade on the Parkway on Army Day. The drill routine was well received by numerous spectators. April 24, CHANGE IN CHAPEL SERVICE. Starting today, and continuing on every Wednesday morning, assemblies will be devoted entirely to one mid-week religious service.

Another milestone was reached when Mr. Andrews and the Dramatic Club presented " The Inspector General, " an internationally-known Russian play by Nikolai Gogol It is a satirical farce on corrupt polit¬ ical practices in a Russian vil¬ lage.

Here we have acquired the final polish of our education, both socially and scholastically. At Allen Hall we have enjoyed many long-awaited privileges more individual freedom, less regimentation, and a fitting climax to our otherwise exacting school days at Girard. However, as we were duly advised on our day of arrival at Allen, with new privileges come new responsibilities. Through the realization and discharge of these responsibilities we have attained a more mature outlook on life. We were brought nearer than ever before to the reality of the outside world we are now entering Through our numerous social events at Allen, so expertly planned by Mr. and Mrs. Zarella, we have gained new social grace and have derived genuine pleasure. Ecstatic memories of our informal house parties still linger. Mr. and Mrs. " Z " , as they are affectionately known, have few equals in their capacities as host and hostess. Above all, it has been at Allen Hall that our class became a true unit in function and in understanding of each other. Here we have lived as one big family, sharing our enjoyments and our responsibilities. Sketchy acquaintances formed while we were divid¬ ed among the four upper houses have become lifelong friendships. A resolution of thanks is hardly sufficient to express our sincere gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Zarella who, with the invaluable aid of Mr. White, prepared those well loved Tuesday night " snacks " and in general made our term at Allen Hall a six months of happy transformation.

Fifty-seven " G ' s " were earned by the class and a school record shattered by one of its athletes. With fifty-two members in the entire class, the fifty-seven total looms exceptionally high as this figure ties the previous " G " record SOCCER The well known Girard booters made one of the finest teams in the city limits, losing only to Northeast in the championship game in extra periods. Con¬ tributing to our powerful aggregation were Bailey, Dzurenda, Hrynko, McGuire, Pipito, Thomas, Stanzione, Williams, Renzi, and co-captain Jim Richards. Elmer Williams provided the sensations of the season when switched to wing in the middle of the year; he scored goals galore and wound up right behind his classma te Richards. Mac McGuire was one of the hardest fighters on the line, while Stanzione and Hrynko alternating at half back did a fine job. The other men were great, but had the misfortune of playing with a team having a surplus of talent FENCING Gene Donovan was the only fencer in the class, but a good one. For two years Gene, also captain of the team in his final season, saw action as a polished per¬ former on an outfit that downed the best in the city. SWIMMING Bob Tierney, " Buzz " Brennan, and Paul Richardson did some rapid splashing with John Kleback and Joe Menichetti taking " G ' s " as managers. Tierney reigned as captain and led the swimmers to a highly successful year. BASKETBALL The courtmen had eight representatives from the graduating class.. The team didn ' t cause much excitement, but they turned in a satisfactory job. Jim Richards captained the team, and brother Nelson, along with McGurk, Pagano, McGuire, Savage, Waller, and Williams, achieved athletic ratings. GYMNASTICS Charlie Ryman was a gymnast as far back as 2-2, but after that season the team disbanded in a brief trial. Ryman ' s smooth performance established him as a fine prospect, but without a team, he was not able to go any further. BASEBALL Frank Pagano is the star here, as he covered second base for three years in the starting lineup. Mac McGuire served behind the plate and ran the team with Elmer Williams as his battery mate. In the outer gardens were Tom Pipito, and " Buck " Bailey, while Mike Hrynko handled the hot corner. TRACK The cindermen ' s improvement this year can be attributed to some extent to the superb performances of " Ted " Roderer (who broke the record in the javelin, to put it mildly), Jim Richards, Jim Savage, and co-captain Mark Sooby. Urbanski vaulted for two years along with Ryman. Thomas did the broad jump and shot, and Stanzione handled twin events with the discus and shot. Gene Donovan starred in the sprints and javelin, while Marchese also ran the sprints.

" —Cicero. 3% (ftnriuthtau [ 42 ] June ®he panb anil Orchestra Perhaps one of the most cherished and inspiring activities we engaged in at Girard is instrumental music. The Band this spring has completed a very successful term under the able captaincy of Al Fego. Assisting him were a competent staff of officers. The First Lieutenant was our accomplished first clarinetist, Vince Gentile. Second lieutenants were " Beef " Kaufman and " Nels " Richards, who headed the drum section. Bill Bamberger, a member of the Swing Band, was the Supply Sergeant. Dan Kogut, " Just " Gonnelli, " Barney " Gruver, and Dave McKenty were the other sergeants. This wealth of talent will be sorely missed. The Orchestra, too, had a favorable term. Despite his added Band duties, " Beef " Kaufman proved to be an able leader of the Orchestra. Equally deserving was Dick Frey, a capable violinist, who due to ill health had to be contented with the unique office of " Honorary Leader " and Concertmaster. Serving as Assistant Leader was Joe Marchese, another diligent violinist. We wish to extend our sincerest thanks to our instructors, Mr. Frey, Mr. Morrison, and Mr. Pfouts, for their expert instruction and patient guidance. They enabled us to enjoy and appreciate music fully. [ 43 ] publications The literary artists of the Class crowded the two publications as probably no other class has done in a long time. As Editor-in-Chief of the News, Joe Stanzione issued a bi-weekly journal with plenty of zest and color. Frank Pagano managed the paper and Joe Menichetti served os News Editor. Ralph Dermott handled one of the new features of the paper with his " Gold Star Biography " column. Darnel McGurk and Steve Urbanski supported the business side of the News as Business Manager and Assistant respectively. Joe Marchese was the Sports Editor. Fred Beise was one of the most accomplished and competent editors The Mag¬ azine has ever had. Never did an issue go by without our proficient editor ' s submitting a story of literary excellence. Dick Frey and Dan Kogut lifted many an eyebrow with their polished works as did Dan Brooks, Joe Bonaparte, and Al Bonaventura, who introduced new articles in the publication. The staffs want to thank Mr. MacGregor and Mr. Foust for their able assistance and fine work in developing the literary talents of the Class and the Print Shop staff for their wonderful cooperation. Finally, we want to thank Dr. Haskell for his time and effort which have enabled The Corinthian to reach soaring heights in our last publication. Dan Kogut headed a highly-polished staff that included Dick Frey, Joe Stanzione, Vince Brennan, and Joe Marchese. (Habrt (Corps In Battalion drill we learned discipline. This aptness to give and take orders will help us surmount many impediments on the road to success. At the head of the Battalion was Jim Richards, Cadet Major. Joseph Menichetti served on the staff as Captain-Inspector. All four of the company captains were from the graduating class. Earl Figart captained Company A, Mac McGuire headed Company B, Bob Tierney was the commander of Company C, and George Thomas captained Company D. As First Lieutenants we had Bob Waller, Steve Urbanski, Vince Brennan, and Melvin Herner from Companies A, B, C, and D respectively. Paul Richardson and Charles Ryman were Second Lieutenants, and Dick Beise was the First Sergeant from Company C. In the Color Guard were Joe Dzurenda, Gene Donovan, and Al Christensen. This group of officers represents one-third of the Class. iExmrtttu? Gtammtttw It goes without saying that the executive staff of the Class consisted of seven members who proved their competence and right to hold their respective positions. Tom McGuire, able President of the Class, carried more than his share of re¬ sponsibility with rare ability, leadership, and judgment. The truly helpful and guiding suggestions of Vice-President Vince Brennan cannot be overlooked. Joe Marchese proved his efficiency as Secretary; as Treasurer, Dick Frey was equally competent. Gene Donovan, President of the Student Council; Elmer Williams, Athletic Council member; and Jim Richards, member of the Conference Committee, were able repre¬ sentatives of the Senior-Two Class. Truly, the Class of June ' 46 has been judicious in its selection of these officers. (Unrintljian June [ 44 ] ORGAN IZ ATIONS 1946 [ 45 ] ®l|p (Coritttfrtan Sramatir (Ulub Dramatics provide perhaps the most enjoyable associations among people Such was the case during the past season. The pleasures derived from working assiduously under the direction of Mr. Andrews will long be remembered , P ™‘ Rlchardson was the first of the Class to brave the stage in the presentation ot A Christmas Carol. " This was followed by a most unusual spring play, " ' Op O ' Me Thumb, " in which Paul, Dan Kogut, and Joe Bonaparte played a trio of laundry gossips in Soho, while Dick Frey put on the robes of a monk (for two eveninqs only) in " The Lions Whelp " The 1945 Christmas production, " Scenes of the Past " brought forth Dick Beise in " Nicholas Nickleby, " Frank Wright in " Yellow Jack ' " Bob Tierney, Dan Kogut, and " Buz " Brennan in " Jean Valjean, " and Paul Richardson as M. Jourdan in " The Would-Be Gentleman. " " The Inspector General " our last presentation, starred Paul Richardson, Dan Kogut, Al Fego, and Bob Tierney. Not to go unnoticed were Forrest Deaner ' s announcing and Bill Bamberger ' s lighting effects work. The positions of President, Vice-President, and Secretary were held by Paul Richardson, Dan Kogut, and Al Fego respectively. (Elub Using our voices in the Glee Club has been an unforgettable experience. Our Sunday morning processions, weekly anthems, the Glee Club Dance, and above all, the Founder ' s Day Concert, have made our last term in the " Gleekie " a bright spot in our careers at Girard. Comprising the backbone of the Club this term were sixteen golden-voiced Seniors. Our much improved tenior section featured Dick Frey, Barney Gruver, " Just " Gonnelli, Jack Russell, Jake Dermott, and Al Fego. An equally fine baritone section included " Beef " Kaufman, Vince Brennan, Mike Hrynko, Dick Beise, and Vince Gentile. Our lustrous basses were Jim Richards, " Pip " Pipito, Jim Savage, Bob Tierney, and " Babs " Bamberger. Jim Richards did a very commendable job as President of the Club and was capably assisted by Bob Tierney and Vince Brennan. To Mr. Harry C. Banks, our director, and Miss Juliet Stacks, our amiable accompanist, we extend our sincerest thanks for their conscientious efforts and for the invaluable vocal training they have given us. We still recall the strains of " There is a Green Hill, " and Deems Taylor ' s arrangements bring back sweet remembrances. Natumal fynuir iuiripty This organization is perhaps the most distinguished in the College. The Class is proud of the men who fully met the four requisites of Service, Scholarship, Leader¬ ship, and Character, qualities necessary for membership in this Society. The officers of this select group were Vince Brennan, capable President, and Ellis Kaufman as Vice-President. Joe Menichetti served as Secretary of the Society. In our J-2 term we were happy to see Vince Brennan, Dan Kogut, and Ellis Kaufman inducted into the National Honor Society. During our S-l term, two more young men, Al Fego and Joe Menichetti, were qualified to enter the organization. In our final S-2 term, Richard E. Frey and James Richards were recognized for pos¬ sessing the same high standards, and they represented the Class very well in everything they undertook. Sty?

According to that philosophy, we can truly say that Girard was home to us, for the associations and friendships ' molded here will remain forever. Each building on this campus will later bring back some pleasant memory. It is for this reason that we publish this aerial view of Girard College. 1946 [ 49 ] ®br fflnrtntljiatt HOME SONG Girard to thee at eventide.
