Text from Pages 1 - 134 of the 1949 volume:

GONE ! GONE FOREVER ! . , . like a rushing wave another year has burst upon the shore of earthly being . . . True, a year has gone—and it has not passed without leaving a profound im¬ pression upon all of us. At first glance, it would seem that this is a reason for feeling fust a little blue. Yet, in recalling, we think of the many ways in which we have grown during that year—and we are not sad! There were times when we found it dif¬ ficult to plod on, especially when term papers and exams leaned heavily upon our conscience. However, those fun- filled dances, hard-fought games, and informal sessions of gossip more than repaid our hours of study and anxiety. Yes, we have grotvn in the past year —both intellectually and socially. That is a splendid achievement and a cause for happiness. LOOKING EAST ON THE MAIN ROAD PUBLISHED BY THE GRADUATING CLASS OF JANUARY 1949 AND PRINTED BY THE STU¬ DENTS OF THE GIRARD COLLEGE PRINT SHOP WE DEDICATE TDIS BDDK WITH GREAT PLEASURE For his diligence and wholehearted interest in our class affairs and for the sincere friendship, able counsel, and help he afforded us during our sojourn through the High School, we are happy to dedicate this class booklet. MR. J. 5. F. RUTHRAUFF MISS ELIZABETH S WHITACRE MISS KATHRYN E. FRAZIER MR. WILLIAM A, YOTTEY The delightful companionship which they afforded us during our stay here at Girard, their unerring interest in our social and private endeavors, and the energy that they have expended in our behalf can in only o small degree be repaid by our hearty and grateful " Thank you! " F A C U L T ' The great end of education is to discipline rather than to furnish the mind, to tram it to the use of its own powers rather than fill it with the accumulations of others. " THE HIGH SCHOOL FACULTY f dcCatCH - ( €utuan I shall be very sorry to see you young men leave Girard. I share with the staff a great regard for you as a group of fine gentlemen. We have had classes whose general ability level has been higher; we have had young men who have studied harder; but rarely have we had a class whose members have won our hearts so completely. Within your group there is much talent—talent in speak ' ng, in acting, in leadership, in art, in music, in athletic prowess. There are boys of scholastic ability whose record in college and in profes¬ sional life may some day bring to them and to Girard great sat ' sfaction. Ach ' evements in these fields are yours to attain. You remember Oliver Wendell Holmes’s poem, " The Boys.” I should like you to reread that poem and then ask yourselves what your class poet will have to say about you thirty years from now. When each boy’s individual achievements have been related, I should like the final stanzas of that anniversary poem to testify to the worth of the men as a group in their family and community life, to their worth as good husbands and fathers, to their sincerity as citizens loyal and willing in local enterprises, and to their devotion in service to church and to civic organizations according to their several capacities. Tiiat you mav be happy in life, that you may bring honor to those who love you, that vou may be as a strong staff to those who lean on you, that you may be persistent students of our ever-changing social and political institutions, that you may come to have a great faith in our country, its traditions and its future, and that you may ap¬ preciate the great importance of the spiritual values of life is the earnest hope and prayer of your principal. Sincerely yours, D. MONTFORT MELCHIOR Principal of the High School Sons of Girard, I charge you never to forget the great benefits you have received in this school, and, in time to come, according to your means, to do all that you can to enable others to enjoy similar advantages; and remember that you carry with you, wherever you go, here or abroad, the good name of Girard College. May God Almighty bless you in your ways and keep you in the knowledge of His love, now and forever. MERLE M, ODGERS, President Ph.D,, L.H.D,, LL.D. Stephen Girard what grandeur the name con¬ notes ' The son of a Frenchman who created an institution; the merchant boy who grew to have the finest " heart " of the century; the financier who amassed a huge fortune and per¬ formed a feat unparalleled in philan¬ thropic annals; the advocate of a free state who was also its finest citizen; that is the American, the Founder, and the foster father to whom we dedicate this page. We can be justly proud that we have grown in the light of his benev¬ olence. He can never die! His name will decorate the hall of time im¬ memorial. It is from him that we learn the true meaning of loving others better than we love ourselves. In humb ' e and grateful aupreciatioti of Dr. Haskell ' s guidance and ad. ice in preparing this book. His unerring ability to see the amusing as well os the serious side of a situation helped us ns end when we were content to Le la in our enthusiasm. To Mr Heck, who took many excel¬ lent photograohs for us, we wish to ex¬ tend the warmest and most sincere ex- prossion of our gratitude. Without his edvi-o and technical ability our book cou ' d not have succeeded. His unusual cheerfu ' ness despite the trouble we caused him is appreciated in no small measure, AlU ' u ifiall It ' s the place our hearts return to- Though our errant feet may roam; It ' s our earthly bit of heaven — It ' s that paradise called home. Truly, time is the subtle thief of youth for it will not be long e ' er venerable lines crown our brows and the shadows of age cap our weary heads And then, after all have journeyed far over the path of life, we ' ll settle contentedly in some favorite spot, close heavy eyes, and paint upon a canvas of stillness and serenity the oictures of days gone by. There are chains that bind us to the post; chains that lead our very thoughts to old friends, old homes. Often shall we think of Allen, our last home at Girard. There we cried and laughed together. There we shared the excite¬ ment of dances, beauty of the snows, duties of work, and the thrills of play. And it was there we found a real meaning of friendship. Fleeting years can never destroy our appreciation of Mr and Mrs. Zarella and Mr. White. In them we found a constant source of guidance and world¬ ly wisdom. Only a humble thanks can we offer for all the work they ' ve done and all the joy they have given us. Milton wrote wisely when he said that time is the thief of youth. Soon we shall have grown o ld. But we shall be happy and satisfied for we ' ve known a wonder¬ ful home. We have had competent counselors. We have lived a life which was rich with the gifts of friend¬ ships made and strong in the strength of wis¬ dom gained. The training of children is a profession, where we must know how to lose time in order to gain it. Rousseau THE HOUSEHOLD STAFF S £ IV 1 D H S " Greater than worldly possession, More precious than rarest of stone, Priceless beyond comprehension Is a single friendship alone.

Dear Classniales: The period of our under graduate days at the College has passed quickly, profitably, and happily. Once more a graduating class glances back over four years. Coining to a full realization of the glory and tradition of the Alina Mater that is its own. Her hand has ever guided us during the transition and maturing years of our lives. Soon we are to have conferred upon us her token of recognition for our efforts as members of her great institution. Now we go our several ways armed with the ideals and aspirations that Girard, to whom we shall always he indebted, has given us. We regret leaving the halls wherein we have studied, and yet we are anxious like those classes that have gone before us to take into the world the knowledge we have gained.

It would require some space to write of the other squad members, so we shall nome a few with apologies to those who are remembered but not mentioned. Mike Cenci became famous for the goals he repeatedly made despite the height of many of his opoonents. Vince Capozzi displayed magnificent ability on the line with Bob Anderson, Bill Freudenberger, and " Jock " Tolamini. It would be improper to forget Ramsey Koumjian and Frank Montalbono for their inimitable attack. Many of the problems of the team found solution on the broad shoulders of our capable manager Joe Tees. Mr Otto con truly feel proud of the teams he shapes, for it is only by his perse- erance and vast knowledge of such sports that any Girard soccer team can reach such heights. TRACK It must be that Phidippides in earlier youth practiced running and jumping, hurling and vaulting to troin himself for his later life. And when called upon to carry -a plea for aid to the Spartans from the Athenians he did so ond in the end ga e his life for the welfare of his country. We did not ask that the track team give Its life fc ' r the College, but we did ask them to give all excert thot and they did so. Theirs was a hard task; like Phidippides they had to tram rig¬ orously and strenuously. Some fell by the wayside and were content to stop for a momentary rest, tut others ran on fight¬ ing though tired ond out of breath Felows like Ed Wood, who co-captain- ed this year ' s team, were the backbone of this organization. Bill Freudenberg showed o willingness to fight as he took the honor of highest-point scorer. It gave us a thrill to watch " Freudy " tear down the track, feet flying, head low, end fists clench¬ ed. We were not surprised when he repeatedly jumped over the high bar. " Freudy " has what It takes. Tom Melvin, Joe Hoffman, and George Satterfield were our representatives as the half-milers. Jim Curtis and Bill Neapolitan threw the shot very capably SWIMMING Although our class had only two rep¬ resentatives among the mermen, this duet was an important point-winning combination for Coach Dunlevy ' s swim¬ mers. Captaining the tankmen and serv¬ ing very efficiently as a star 200 yard free-styler, Simon Koumjian proved more than once the real value of consistent practice by exhibiting ability back in Junior High. He earned the position of captain by his loyalty and record. To re¬ ward his efforts Simon has in years of swimming collected a fist full of ' Gs. Completing the second half of this aquatic duo is " Hoagy " Hugget While Joe |0 ned the team only in his Junior-two term, he has made a fine showing and earned u I nir of " G ' s " to prove this point. Also a free-styler, Joe participated in the 50-yard wims and relays. Managing for Coach Dunlevy and handing in the kind of job that his name suggests, Jim Wells took the limelight Often the significance of this position is Ov.-rlooked, but the effort and efficiency Jim put forth must not be omitted, he well-earned his lette;. The class may well be proud of its three members affiliated with this organization BASEBALL Led by " Bob " Harold, the able co-captain, the January forty-niners contributed greatly to a very successful season. The heavy hitting of " Nev " Pelleschi, the flawless fielding of John Oakill and Mike Cenci, along with " Cooky " Pascali ' s speed on the bases, were some of the basic factors necessary for a great season. Mac McGuire capably filled the position of a relief hurler. Not to be forgotten are the indispensable substitutes, Tom Foley and " Hots " Weiner, who filled in wherever necessary and did a fine job. " Hook " Fitzpatrick carried out the important work of manager. The class is proud of their ability. BASKETBALL The aggregation of Girard courtmen, led.capably last seoson by the able Nevio Pelleschi, owed much to the forty-niners of January. Starters in the quintet included such prominent Allenite athletes as " Hor " Harold, Bob Anderson, John Oa kill and Captain Pelleschi. Contributing to the first team as reliable substitutes were " flashy " Mike Cenci, Tom Foley, Sam Weiner, " Mac " McKenzie, " Cookie " Poscali and Ramsey Koumjian. Let us not look over the dependable and alert manager which the " passers " found in the person of Maurice Gawlas. To the coach, Mr. Wolstenholme, we convey our sincere thanks for the labor he out into the training of our basketball men. L COACHES " Men, my brothers, men the workers, ever reaping something new. That which they hove done but earnest of the things that they shall do. " How true this is of our coaches. In each we find a kindness unsurpassable anywhere else. At times it became their tasks to push us a little more to excite our interest in sports. We soon saw that theirs was a hard task with few rewards yet great self sacrifice. We can only say that wherever we are and whatever we may do your unerring interest in our welfare will always remain with us. Most likely to succeed..The pass Most populor . . V. .Kourrjion, R.

Moko r-f, ACTIVITIES txrrutiur mnmmittrr Our class extends a note of gratitude to its leaders who unerringly blazed the trail for us to follow. Ramsey Koumjian ably conducted his arduous duties as Pres¬ ident. His well-qualified associates featured " Bugs " Rabbitt as Vice-President Tom Melvin as Secretary and Ed Mako as Treasurer. Ramsey carried the heavy responsibilities of Senior Class President with ability " Bugs " Rabbitt worked diligently to brmg about o coordinated Student Council os that orgonization ' s president, and we must say that his was a most successful term Vince Cusatis ably represented the class in the Conference Committee for three consecutive terms. Lost, but not least we have " Nev " Pelleschi who worthily expressed our opinions as our representative on the Athletic Committee. Nattnual ffiminr urtrtii The National Honor Society, known over the country os the N H. S., was on integrol port of our class ' stability. At eoch new induction a wave of what might be termed " proud jealousy " swept over our class. Through many of us watching a classmate inaugurated into an organization of such national importance went a thrill of pride, and with this pride a pang of jealousy, the desire to be a part, to belong to something worthy of our most intense emulation. The president of this organization, " Mac " McKenzie, truly possessed the attri¬ butes, the foundation of this greot organization: CHARACTER, LEADERSHIP, SCHOL¬ ARSHIP and SERVICE. Joseph Van Horn was chosen as secretary. Joe ' s greatest asset lies in his all- around ability. It is seldom that we find such as he. Other members of this organization inducted later were: Robert Anderson and Harry Pittman. laltaliini Waterloo, Antietum, Thermopylae, and Argonne, like so many dreams, have faded into the mist of time. There heroism, courage, and determination came to the fore. Strategy and skill drove the countless armies on. Here in Girard is the birthplace of men who may have fought there. Here boys destined to play important parts in paving the way for a better world have lived and learned. Among our own battalion members in the class of Jan.

Tom Melvin, Bill Marine and Mac Me Kenzie, the other members of the staff, displayed in their particular positions talents of leadership. The four company commanders, Howard Eveland, Michael Cenci, Attilio Pascal!, and Edward Powers, incessantly tried and trained their companies for the competitive drill and thus were eligible for this honor. We can thank Colonel Hamilton most heartily for his unerring guidance and also his staff for their interest in this organization. Staff of " Jan. ' 49.

" Olhp SauJi an ( rrhpatra During the past four years we have enjoyed working in two of the most interesting and varied organizations at Girard-—the band and orchestra. The color and snap of the Senior Band ' s drill on Founder ' s Day, the regular Satur¬ day morning concerts, the rousing strains of a march, and a final climax to a year ' s work with the annual Christmas Concert—these are events which will long remain in our memories. Ken Gibbons, a capable and respected maestro, captained the Band for a suc¬ cessful and outstanding season. Much of the ensembles ' high attainment was made possible by such potential artists as Frank Montalbano, Hars Pittman, and Tony Puglisi in the clarinet section; Bill Murray, Paul Neider, and Herb Adams leading the Cornets; Bill Freudenberger, Bill Faust, Mike Mazak, and George Satterfield ca¬ pably supporting the brass section. It is only fitting that we express a word of thanks here for Phil ' s remarkable violin playing and never-ending desire to help other musically inclined students. The fellows of the musical organizations wish to thank Dr, Horning and Mr. Frey for the time they so willingly and patiently spent in teaching them the fundamentals of music. Sraumtir (Uliib " The World ' s a Theatre; the Earth’s a Stage Wh ' tch God and Nature Do with Actors Fill.” The first production in which our class took many leading ports was " Oliver Twist " adapted from the book by Mr. Andrews. " Bugs " Rabbitt, the president of the Dramatic Club, played the blustering and somewhat unconscious Mr. Bumble. His wife, given to wild tantrums ond gin, found able representation in Vince Cusatis. " Nev " Pelleschi, " Choddy " Powers and " Cookie " Pascali displayed their talents in other roles. One can easily recognize the importance of dramatics at Girard. This becomes more and more evident when we think of famous plays such as " Yellow Jack, " " The Admirable Crichton, " and the wonderful Centennial Pageant. Victor Hugo, in writing " Les Miserables, " displayed talent comparable to that of the finest novels. When Mr. Andrews chose this story and adapted it to a play, it was evident that here was the making of a good drama. Rabbitt took the difficult part of narrator, a task requiring that he hold to¬ gether the different episodes with continuity, We should mention that Tom Melvin displayed great acting ability in his interpretation of many of the characters at the try-outs. For Mr. Andrews we can only say that life is not filled with such as you. People who willingly give of their time to edify others are too often appreciated in silence. Publiraltntis Throughout the years, Girard has presented o variety of school publications. As the desire for campus information grew, so did these journalistic works. Today we take them for granted, not realizing that they represent o tradition in a good school and symbolize our broadening area of student interests. There must be on opportunity to develop these interests through the written word. When time has tried the memory of on old graduate, and he looks bock with longing to his high school days, what could provide more pleasure than turning the yellow leaves of his graduation book, reminiscing and exulting. We, too in later days, will look at ours and remember Vince Cusotis, whose unselfish and witty atti¬ tude coupled with his innate ability to originate, hove created a year book of which every classmate is proud. . , THE CORINTHIAN is not the only publication worthy of applause. I here is also THE GIRARD MAGAZINE, a booklet which has made substantial progress in recent years. The MAGAZINE staff was lucky enough to have as their Editor-in-chief one of the finest producers of creative writing in Girard history. Herb Adorns. Yes and there is also THE GIRARD NEWS Girord |ust wouldn t be Girard without Its newspoper. To George Sotterfield, 0 very copoble Editor-in-chief ond diligent worker, go our congrotulotions. As George goes on through life we ore sure he ' ll be a great success. We wish olso to thank the Foculty sponsors without whose guidance and assistance these publicatio.ns would have been impossible. Ruling Beginning the post term with mostly an inexperienced group, Bill Murray, through his constant effort ond continual encouragement, did a wonderful job in producing one of the Girard ' s better swing bands Bill served two years in the trumpet section during which he was quietly preparing himself for the leodership of the aggregation. Herb Adams, a trumpeter in two previous bands, filled in the other trumpet chords. Frank Montalbano, a veteran on the saxophone, proved his tolent during the past term by playing the melody part nn his alto. Bill Faust, playing a sweet trombone, served in the brass section for three terms Joining the band in their last term were George Satterfield, also on the trombone. Bill Phillios contributing to their rhythm department with his bass fiddle, and Pat Rabbitt, who did a fine job on the vocal assignments. Serving in the unsung position of monager, Som Weiner aided tremendously in the business side of the engagements. To those of this group, the Swing Band is one of the most enjoyable activities of Girard To see dancers having a pleasant evening brings back a double satisfaction to reward the band for its hours of practice.

From them the fire of ideas and convictions flares forth and IS rekindled by the tide of events of which their proteges are a part. It is from them that men become great, and nations are formed. Was it not so that Socrates fought Plato that a special class should rule, and even today his philosophy lives? Did not Nietsche influence Hitler and help to start the Second World War? Did not Marx teach of a workers ' Utopia and start the Russian Revolution? Who can say that Paine did not teach that freedom of the press, religion and speech must be fought for? Indirectly he helped to kindle the flame of the Revolution On and on through time we recall great teachers from before Christ and his disciples to the present day.

You can remember how we rehearsed a French song with Miss Frey, the excite¬ ment before the big night, and the si¬ lence that was over us sitting around Dr. Melchior ' s feet as he delivered a challenge. On up the ladder: 1-2, 2-1, and finally 2-2. Gosh! Girls at last! " Tippy " was almost doing cart wheels to liberate his exuberance while " Har— shy guy Har " —was sitting alone in the corner. That wos 2-2. Came J-1 and so did dancing instructors. How can we forget the blush of Howard Eveicnd a slide with Miss McGhee. Then the J-1 dance and all the phone calls, meetings in the park, and pas¬ sionate letters which followed. Up through the High School mist we whirled. J-1, J-2, S-1, S-2; the slide close, slide, became glide, pause, glide. The melodious strains of the Swing Band, the not-to-be-outdone-cry of our lively consistent Em Cee, Vince Cusatis, the cheerfulness of Miss McGhee, Miss Frazier, and our other hosts and and hostesses, fancy stepping by French and Mary Jane, " Scraz " and Joan, Herb and mythical Mary Ann are all milestones in our career. Time will rust us, but we mustn ' t forget these pleasant moments we spent together. i FOUNDER ' S HALL THE LIBRARY ‘, . AS WE CAME THE CORINTHIAN June I C jrard College Philadelphia, Pa.

WILLIAM COOPER 1 ‘ " w That name is inscribed in the hearts of some 15,000 alumni, and the number will gradually swell un¬ til the wrought iron gates of Girard close forever. Comparatively poor as a boy, Stephen Girard came to this country and amassed a tremendous fortune which he willed to found a school that would teach fatherless boys the precepts of monhood. Like few leaders before him, he possessed the ability to see what lay ahead in future years. We, the grad¬ uating class, and you who will march the road eastward in years to come, and those who have preceded us are the beneficiaries of that foresight. Tribute has been paid him many times and many ways, but we, the Class of June 1949, although our words lock the glamour and polish of experienced orotors, wish to express our sincerest appreciation of a man who is revered by all of us. STEPHEN GIRARD Founder of Girard College 1 DR. MERLE M. ODGERS President of Girard College " Sons of Girard, I charge you never to forget the great bene¬ fits you hove received in this school. " These words—the final challenge we receive under the President ' s wise guidance— will be forever ringing in our ears. It is to him we have looked for ten years as a fine example of a gentleman, for a wise interpretation of the Bible, and for the type of leadership that can leave one only with a feeling of security. For all this we would like to express our sincerest appreciation, and assure him that we will always remember to carry with us " the good name of Girard College. " THE HIGH SCHOOL FACULTY To The Graduating Class ' - June ig4g: What should I say in the last of a long series of letters written to the boys of graduating classes? Frequently I have said in substance: we have grown to love you and it is hard to see you leave us; we are proud of the contributions you have made to Girard; we are confident of your success after you leave us; we crave for you happiness as a family man and useful¬ ness as a citizen. All of this I happily say again to you. As I grow older I overlook readily minor peccadilloes, and give greater thought to character, personality, and performance. At any rate as I watch you young men come up the aisle in the auditorium I forget the trivia and am very conscious of the fact that you do have ability, and that you have shown a most gracious and friendly attitude toward all who knew you, and that you do give every promise of success in office, shop, and college. I know all too well, however, that you will be confronted by unanticipated hurdles. You will be impatient for promotion, as you see other boys surpass you in wages and advancement; " balancing the budget” will disillusion you as to what you can do, or rather cannot do, with your income; your love affairs may not work out to your satisfaction. The cure-all that will help most is to have a long-range objective for your life’s fulfilment. To be respected for your sterling worth in your community; to be hon¬ ored for your success in your vocation; to be loved and revered by your wife and children; to have the confidence of your associates and the veneration of old folks and little children; to be conscious daily of your love for God and your fellowmen— these attributes will assure the ultimate happiness that you crave. May you be a blessing to the world that will be yours. Sincerely and affectionately, D. MONTFORT MELCHIOR Principal of the High School THE 1949 CORINTHIAN THE CORINTHIAN hm life in ALLEN HALL Mr. Zarella Mrs. Zarella Mr. White Everyone in the College below the graduating class looks forward to reaching Allen Hall. Naturally when we arrived at Allen, we expected a great deal. Our expectations were more than fulfilled. At last, instead of being lost in the crowd we were individuals and personalities. It was in Allen that we first realized that our class had a wide influence among the underclassmen. This was the responsibility that came attached to our new freedom. This feeling of freedom has done much to prepare us for the social aspects of our life in the outside world. Allen ' s freedom and companionship made our last term at Girard one which all of us hate to see end. Our parting comes when we have acquired an ideal acquaintance with our classrnates. Important factors in the enjoyment we had on the last stop on the road east were the help ond advice of Mr. and Mrs. Zarella and Mr. White. In the small parties after study and in the house parties, they have provided numerous hours of en¬ tertainment and amusement. The thrill of having a personal room would hove been less if it hadn ' t been for the encouragement and aid we received. Mr. Zarella always has a solution for any Girardian ' s problem. For everything they have done for us, we thank Mr. White and Mr. and Mrs. Zarella, whose last term in Allen we hope we have made the best. i 10 f- ALLEN HALL MEMORIES 1049 THE CORINTHIAN in - Mo ISTEROOS Chubby Reese- ho5T5A6HFUL 5e 5T Dancer :VjUNE ' 49 Larry Crocuolo RocCO CAr PAK WE Ed Hunta H o ST Popular Tof Faustiho E ESTDRC8SE0, DestLookins Tom 6oLiAi Best iAusiciah J.

Dear Classmates: All too soon has come the time for me to write this letter. It’s not an easy job, for in living the past ten years I have learned the meaning of companionship. When it comes time for me to say goodbye, words can’t express my feelings. 1 realize now how lucky I was to be a " hummer.” Where but in Girard could a strange young boy find a new home that would some day be so hard to leave? Where could he find so many boys who would share with him all their thoughts, failures, and accomplishments? Where else could he find a group of adults who would play the dual role to success as he traveled the old road east. Yes, fellows, we’ve grown up within the confines of a great tradition. Its ivy-covered walls and its many colors will always be a cherished memory of our happy youth. Never forget them; they weren’t meant to be forgotten. Look about you, classmates!

One might say that Jim had the largest appetite in the Class, but the way he wrestles and swims justifies it; so that ' s that.

' " Reds ' " flashing hair was a familiar sight on the baseball diamond bosketboll court, ond the soccer field. His ability as an athlete is natural. Admired by many for this skill, " Reds " remains modest. Perhaps it is this quality which makes it tough to say goodbye to him! RICHARD EUGENE CLOSSIN (Dick) 181 Plainfield Avenue, Johnstown, Pa.

Whenever you heord melodious tones echoing through the halls, more than likely they would be traced to " Pat. " On all occasions, whether with the Glee Club or his Harmony Club, his voice was an instrument of pleasure. Pot wasn ' t missing when brains were passed out either.

Good for a joke, and never too busy to listen to a new one, johnny ' s a fine gymnast and a three-letter man. He did much t o keep Girard on the winning side. If Johnny can go through life with his ser¬ ious outlook, he can attoin a name for himself. GEORGE CINTON REESE (Chubbie) 1168 Villanovo Avenue, Rutledge, Pa.

He proved this by leading the Battalion os Cadet Major this post term. Aside from that he served three terns on the stoff and four seasons on the swimming team A capable printer, Fran did much for the class by lending a hand on printing programs and such. He is another classmate Girard will be proud of. JOSEPH TINI (Joe) --- 911 Blakely Street, Jessup, Pa.

It was our over-six foot Palmer who guarded the first sock so zealously. Smooth - fielding Rocco Campanile gobbled them up at second and he was always a threat at the plate. " Reds " Carfrey was our fancy shortstop and " pepper box " of the team. His chatter did much to keep the team in good spirits. Tinkers to Evers to Chance had nothing on " Reds " to Rocco to " Duges. " In the outer pastures of the north playground roamed ouir two fielders, " Chubby " Reese and Larry Criscuolo. ' Chubby ' s " booming voice could be heard at all times cheering on the pitcher, while " Larry ' s peg from center field made him a constant threat to ball¬ players who like to stretch their hits. For the past two seasons the June forty-niners have been well represented on the court,. .They were captained by our big six foot three inch veteran center, " Dugan " Palmer, who constantly dom¬ inated the backboards.. .Not to be for¬ gotten is our co-captain, Ed. Quinn, who did some clever play making throughout the season.. .These two fellows handled the team smoothly and helped to make it outstanding. " Kif " Carfrey and Rocco Campan¬ ile filled the bill as first stringers and saw plenty of action along with " Dugan " and Ed. What good is a team without re¬ serves? Well, we had the best in that department. Among our " flashy " sub¬ stitutes were such standouts as ' Tout " Toutkaidjian, " Chubby " Reese, " Flip " Jones and " Turtle " Blackwell. These fellows contributed greatly to the team. We want to thank our Coach, Mr. Wolstenholme, for giving so much effort and interest to the training of our " hoopsters. " June ' 49 in Basketball " Flip " Jones was our only hurler, and his baffling curves won many a ball game and fattened his number of strikeouts. A little more time and " Flip " will be able to write his own " Strikeout Story. " Serving as utility outfielder and infielder were Tom Golias and Jim Wilkinson, both of whom could hold their own whether at the plate or on the field. Thanks to the work of Coach Wolstenholme and the spirit of the team, Girard finished another great season. THE COStlMTHIAN 1949 TRACK AND SWIMMING Our class showed a sudden outburst of interest in track this season, and the spec¬ tators enjoyed watching new members wha had never felt the thrill of breaking down the runway with a first or second place. Wilkinson showed more natural abil¬ ity than he had a few years ago, as he brought in surprising times in the mile run. His well developed stride put him in front to place for Girard this season. Most of our help was given around the pit with five athletes, " Gabes " DiFabio, George Wingerter, " Moe " Lang, Bob Cor- June 49 in Track sini, and " Turtle " Blackwell. Honors in the high jump were captured by " Moe " Lang as he completed his most successful season. Girard secured many places in the running broad with the services of " Turtle " Blackwell and Bob Corsini, who made surprising distances. Our tankmen would feel more at home in our tiled pool than they would bathing in the pool of Taj Mahal in India, or swimming the Hellespont like the great American author-traveler Richard Halliburton. Some mighty fine splashing has been done by our mermen during this past term. Leading the Steel and Garnet aquaboys was Fran Smead, who was one of team ' s best freestylers. He earned the position of captain by his loyalty and record. Adding much to the athletic prowess of the tankmen was " Cav " Cavanagh our persevering 200-yard free-styler. Also, a free-styler, Jerry Goldman participated in the 50-yard swims and relays. The not-to-be-forgotten backstroking was done by Maxie Breslin. Bending the boards for the Steel and Garnet " chlorine boys " was " Umbie " D ' Annibale. These fellows have proved more than once the value of consistent practice since first joining the team in Junior High. Carrying on in the necessary job as manager for the swimmers and Coach Dunlevy was Eddie Mika. His effort and efficiency are not to be overlooked. Although halted in the middle of their last season by an epidemic, these members of the swimming team did their best, and the Class may well be proud of their work in this organization. THE CORINTHIAN June ' 49 in Swimming -{36F SOCCER June ' 49 in Soccer Although our class didn ' t place too many fellows on the first string in soccer, we were well represented. We had only two regulars in " Dugan " Palmer and " Reds " Carfrey, but we had a wealth of talent in substitutes. Notable among this latter group are " Chubby " Reese and Jim Wilkinson who filled in admirably in the pinches. These four members played important roles in helping tie Northeast for the city soccer championship. It would require a great deal of space to write up all the other squad members, so with apologies to them we mention only their names; " Cork " Corsini, " Flip " Jones, Ed Quinn, and Rocco Campanile filled in for our regulars whenever possible and were I a continual source of spirit for the team. I Also performing well were Bill Fray, Tom Golias, Ben Gunning, Elmer Paterson, I and Larry Criscuolo. f But these fellows could never have achieved the glory they brought to themselves ' and to the school without the personal understanding, perseverance, and vast know¬ ledge of a talented and skillful leader. Such a man is Coach Otto. It is to him that we owe our particular abilities in soccer. 1949 THE CORINTHIAN -{37} ' GYMNASIUM June ' 49 in The Gym Team No person in the Hum con soy our class was lacking in gymnasts, for among that " terrific " team were five talented young men, Manny Procopio, Ben Gunning, Tom Foustino, Ed Yurish, and Johnny Raiewski. " Copes " Procopio has shattered all " Hum " records in gym, and now leaves Girard with a record of 943 points for one meet. A truly marvelous feat indeed, and one that will not be m.atched for a long time. " Copes " not only distinguished himself in the " Hum " meets, but in the invitation meet he won the horizontal bar title for Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Ben Gunning is a star tumbler and many times held the spectators in awe as he performed his acrobatic feats on the mat. Ben proved he was no amateur on the other pieces of apparatus, for it was a common thing to see his name listed among the top scorers. Tom Foustino is the " monkey " of our gymnasts. He conributed all he had to the gym team, specializing in the rope climbing department. His small, lithe body fairly flew up the rope to bring a few points to Girard. Ed Yurish is a little man but a big boy in gym. He is fast and sure on the side horse and horizontal bar. John Raiewski was another participant of the gym team. Due to an operation on his arm, John was not able to compete for the " Hum " during the ' 48- ' 49 season. As they leave today, the members of the gym team wish to express their deepest appreciation to Mr. A. Carl Patterson, coach of the gym team, who taught them all they know. THE CORINTHIAN •{38; THE COACHES Mr. John P. Dun levy Mr. A. Carl Patterson Mr. Alford G. Otto Mr. David C. Wolstenholme Everyone knows that often there is not enough time for a person to accumulate enough experience in athletics. Taking the place of experience, our coaches have done a swell job. Without their watchful guidance our teams would not have made the numerous fine showings they did. Our coaches have provided the ways and means of playing which a winning team must have. It was Coach Otto who taught the soccermen enough to gain a tie with North¬ east when they played for the city championship. It was this same man who taught the cindermen and tried to make them speedsters on the track. Coach Patterson turned out a gym team of which we can be justly proud. Under his direction the tumblers lost only two meets. In the Armory our dribblers could not have scored a total of only four points less than the opponents without the aid of Coach Wol¬ stenholme. The games we won are a tribute to his knowledge. His helping hand was also necessary to turn out a good baseball nine. In the depths of the High School, Coach Dunlevy gave the mermen hints on how to give the fish competition. Looking at the record, we find that his teachings must have been very good. Every coach will be remembered by the fellows who worked under him. Their directions and advice will forever be remembered. If we changed a famous proverb a little bit, it might be made to read like this; " Experience is the best teacher, and a coach can provide plenty of it. " 1949 THE CORINTHIAN RETIRING MEMBERS OF FACULTY AND STAFF Dr. Melchior Mr. Bardsley Mr. Sparks Mr. Davis Miss Sipple DR. D. MONTFORT MELCHIOR Dr. Melchior’s kind, affectionate feeling toward all will long be remembered, for it was he who guided us unerringly along the rough road to wisdom. How can we ever for¬ get his talks in the auditorium—humorous or serious, but benefiting all? Loved and re¬ spected by all, he will never be forgotten by Girardians who have come under his thought¬ ful guidance. MR. JOSEPH A. DAVIS Mr. Joseph A. Davis is well known to every Girardian as the one under whom the Household Department has progressed im¬ mensely. His knowledge of and interest in boys did much to promote better relations between the College personnel and students. His ac¬ complishments as Superintendent of House¬ hold deserve highest praise. MR. CHARLES T. BARDSLEY All commercial students agree that from Mr. Bardsley’s expert teaching anyone can learn shorthand. His retirement has been well ea rned, and he has deserved the time which he can now devote to his hobbies, chess and gardening. The Class now says farewell with a hearty an revoir. MISS ETHEL A. SIPPLE Although we have not been associated with Miss Sipple during our later period at Girard, she played an important role in our younger years. From our first school day un¬ til junior high she has had the task of form¬ ing our immature minds and guiding our adventurous thoughts. While the memory of her is fresh and rich, we wish to express our appreciation and wish her many happy years of retirement. MR. WILLIAM C. SPARKS Much admired around the campus is Mr. William C. Sparks. His humor endeared him to all. His interest in sports is the cause of Girard’s large-scale athletic program. This interest makes the boys think of him not only as an advi.sor but also as a friend. To attain Mr. Sparks’ cheerful, inspirational manner is our highest goal. THE CORINTHIAN (40}- ACTIVITIES THE CORINTHIAN ■{41 ! 1949 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Anderson Collier Jones Palmer Foustino Quinn In our S-1 term, Tom Foustino was elected President. His work throughout the term was so satisfying that he received unanimously the presidency in our final six months stay at Girard. Under him was the capable Jim Palmer, who served as Vice- President. Jim holds an office in every organization of which he is a member. Philip Jones and Ed Quinn completed the officers who were chosen to lead the Class and set an example for the following classes. Both are capable and hardworking fellows, who have done much for the welfare of the Class throughout the years. The Student Council was led through a very successful term under the guidance of Jim Collier. He carried out his responsibility in a way that labeled him as a profes¬ sional leader. Jim Palmer showed his worth by securing the position of Treasurer of the Council. In the Athletic Council, it was again Jim Palmer who represented the Class. The Conference Committee had as our representative the well qualified Jim Col¬ lier. Jim represented the Class in some organization throughout the High School, and we as his classmates are proud of the way he handled all Class matters. THE CORINTHIAN {42 S ccai " Moonlight Serenade " was the name of our.first class dance. Soft music and dim lights combined with beautiful girls and handsome " Casanovas " created a dreamy atmosphere. Dave Pustilnick was our first master of ceremonies. He did a swell job for an inexperienced co¬ median. In the spring of ' 48 Founder ' s Hall was opened after being closed for re¬ pairs. For the first time we were allowed to see the beautifully decorated ball¬ room. This dance, combined with the celebration of Centennial Week, of¬ ficially opened the anniversary of our Alma Mater. Dr. Odgers and the Board of Directors were present, and Dr. Melchior did us the honor of cutting our huge 25-pound cake. S-1, and our first term as seniors. " Harvest Moon, " under the direction of Mr. Baker and Miss Sigmund, turned into the best dance ever held at Girard. The decorations were exquisite, and the play¬ ing of the swing band superb. Al Zam¬ brano took over the chore as M. C. and did a bang up job of it. So good, was he, that he was unanimously elected to the same job in S-2. Rocco Campanile walk¬ ed off with the elimination prize. " Allen Nite! " At last we were members of the graduating class. Using the same dance committee, we again had the best dance ever. The slippery floor added to the confusion and fun, and more than one couple kicked off the wrong way in the Conga line. Our numerous " lady killers " joined in the hilarity and provided all of us with loads of fun. Soon we were walking up the steps of Founder ' s Hall with a beautiful girl clad in a shimmering evening gown to our last social affair at the Hum. The three hours we spent in the ballroom seemed like a dream, and it seemed only a few minutes till it was time to leave and close the book on the social world. For the first time we realized fully just how much fun we had in those never-to-be-forgotten class dances and parties. The success of all of these dances was largely due to the tireless efforts of our hostesses and hosts. Miss Louise Sigmund, Mrs. Cooper, Mr. Cooper and Mr. Baker. We cannot hesitate to mention the person who transformed us from those blushing boys into the gentlemen we are now. Miss Miriam McGhee. " Thank you very much. " THE CORINTHIAN 1949 JUNE ' 49 IN THE BATTALION It was evident as soon os the junior term began who the leader of the doss in the Battalion would be. With the help and advice of Colonel Hamilton, Cadet-Major Fran Smead took charge of the cadets and certainly raised the standards. Aiding him in his job of trying to make as much as possible perfect were Captain Adjutant Larry Criscuolo and Captain of Recruits " Flip " Jones. Breaking the Battalion into companies, we had Captain George Wingerter leading Company A with the help of Lieutenant John Cavanagh. Three fellows from our class were leaders of Company B. Captain Ed Quinn had the assistance of Lieutenants " Umbies " D ' Annibale and Bob Corsini. Following the commands of Captam " Cos " Tripolitis and Lieutenant " Gabes " DiFabio, Com¬ pany C tried to improve their snappiness. All four top officers of Company D were from our class. They were Captain Ed Yurish and Lieutenants Charles Koff, Rocco Campanile and Anthony Gorski. Under these capable leaders the more unfortunate members of the Battalion got down to work and really tried to improve on last term ' s record. All the officers appreciate the helpful leadership of Colonel Hamilton. Although we might not hove enjoyed guard duty, it is certain that the thoughts of the com- Lieut Colonel James M. Homilton P°ny drills and the parades, both practice and display, Miiitory Science and Tactics Will remain among our pleosont and treasured memories. THE CORINTHIAN JUNE ' 49 IN THE BAND Besides being probably the most cherished and inspiring activity we engaged in at Girard, the instrumental music program offered us many pleasant experiences. From the long bus trips to Hanover or Atlantic City during the Centennial to our un¬ dignified performance in the elephant yard in the Philadelphia Zoo, lie memories which are ours forever. In the spring term it was a trip to Penn Charter, or the color of the senior Band ' s drill on Founder ' s Day. The fall brought the Cultural Olympics. During the past term we have been piloted under the leadership of " Tout " Toutkaidjian, ably assisted by John Patriarca. Tom Faustino was 2nd Lieutenant, and Chester Clapper and Ben Beers were 1st Sergeant and Supply Sergeant respectively. In the clarinet section were Pat Patriarca, " Chubby " Reese, and Chester Clapper, while Tom Faustino handled the bass clarinet. " Tout " Toutkaidjian, Dugan Palmer, and " Life " Levis took care of the trumpet section, while Louie Napoli produced mellow notes on his French horn and Ben Beers tooted the baritone. The sax¬ ophone was just that when Walt Wagner played it. Jim Collier had " the grandpa of the orchestra " - - the bassoon. To Dr. Horning, who has won the admiration and respect of all, and to Mr. Frey and Mr. Morrison, who developed in us t he love of some¬ thing we shall retain and cherish all our lives, we offer our sincere appreciation and thanks. Dr. Ralph V. Horning, Director 1949 THE CORIMTHIAM -{45 DRAMATICS June ' 49 in The Dramatic Club Most Girardians have had only a brief encounter with Dramatics—a tussle in the classroom with one or more of Shakespeare ' s ploys, maybe. Our doss, fortunately, re¬ cognized the importance of Dramatics at Girard, and that is one of the reasons we had such a large representation. Our first contribution to Girard histrionics was the production, " Oliver Twist. " Joe Giordano, who mode his debut os Oliver, did o fine job. Pusty Pustilnick, who was rewarded for all his hard work and performances by being elected President of the Dramatic Club in S-2, played the arduous role of Noah Claypole. Then, in S-1, eleven of the class actors sup¬ ported Dave Pustilnick in " Jean Valjean, " adapt¬ ed form Victor Hugo ' s novel " Les Miserables. " Carl young put on the robes of a bishop and Pat Patriarca and Jim Collier were the sedate wife and gossipy maid respectively. In the courtroom scene it was " Tout " Toutkaidjian and " Umbies " D ' Annibale who held the audience in awe. For our final term in the limelight, Dave Pustilnick, " Umbies " D ' Annibale, " Tout " Tout¬ kaidjian, Carl Young, Pat Patriarca, and Jim Collier were brought forth in Oliver Goldsmith ' s " She Stoops to Conquer. " The servant scene with Walt Cranmer, Ben Gunning, and Tom Golias was acted so well that the audience was constantly thrown into peals of laughter. Not to go unnoticed were Dick Lang and Tom Golias, who did many splendid scenery pieces and Jim Wilkinson and " Kif " Carfrey the property managers. And to you Mr. Andrews, words cannot express our satisfaction and grati¬ tude. Mr. Henry V. Andrews Director THE CORINTHIAN i46 ' r I I THE GLEE CLUB The purpose of the Club during the lost term wos twofold; The members goined knowledge and a finer appreciation of music and in turn shared it with all who heard the singing. But how can we ever look back on those happy moments we spent together and forget the friendly guidance and professional advice of our leader, Dr. Harry C. Banks, Jr.? Also guiding us along the path through her insight and wonderful person¬ ality was Miss Juliet E. Stacks, our fine accompanist. It is only through them that we have been abl e to appreciate the real value of our music. Ed Quinn served capably in his position as President of the Club and was very instrumental in maintaining the high in¬ terest and spirit charact¬ eristic of the organization. Also serving well were Larry Criscuolo as Vice- President, Jim Palmer as Secretary, and " Tout " Toutkaidjian as Trea¬ surer. As we leave this home of ours, we will always cherish the many happy hours we spent as mem¬ bers of the Glee Club. THE CORINTHIAN 1949 W Dr Harry C. Bonks Director of Music Miss Juliet C.

As we watched our classmates inaugurated, we could not help feeling a sense of pride for their achievement. Yet there lingered a pang of envy, the desire to take the oath, to become a member, to be recognized as a part of a great society. John Anderson served two terms as Pres¬ ident of the society. James Palmer served capably as vice-pres¬ ident, and Joseph Giordano in his capacity as secretary. James Collier and John Patriarca are not to be forgotten, for their persistent efforts in maintaining the integrity of the society were surely instrumental in keeping its spirits alive. Other members who were later inducted into the organization are: Irvin Miller, Paul Beers, Jerome Goldman, and Walt Wagner.
