PICTURES OF THE MONTH
OE THE WHOLE MAN
The type of education one receives is directly related to his understand-
ing of life and the philosophy upon which it is based. The philosophical
ideal of Coyle has for its foundation three inevitable factors: that man
must earn a livelihood, live, and die regardless of the form of training he
has received. To exercise each of these to its fullest requires a completely
rounded personality, the total man, whose mind, heart and hand have been
equally and at the same time properly developed to their respective ca-
pacities. Coyle students have been subjected to the influence of one of
the humanistic movements which hold as its chief tenet, the develop-
ment of the individual.
The Ancient Greeks and Romans, lacking the supernatural goal given
men by faith, centered their studies about man and the problems of his
materialistic happiness. Their conclusion was that each should struggle
for the fullest development of his individuality in order that life might be
,".- ,-1, ,a,
A, - ..,. ,L .,, ...IA-
. , , 1- ,. ,
as harmonious and complete as possib e. Thus their emphasis vvas upon a
sound mind and a sound body theory,
We ot Coyle follow the traditions ot St, Thomas More and St. John
Fisher which adapt the culture ot the ancient writers to Christian stand-
ards in order that the strength ot the mind and body might be matched
with spiritual fortitude The Pagan l-lumanists tail in obtaining their goal
tor the omission ot the spiritual development produces incomplete
This book was undertaken with the purpose ot presenting in a concrete
and graphic manner these principles and their ettects upon the mind, the
heart and the hand ot all Coyle students.

To Brother Richard, C.S.C., our principal, in acknowledgment of his
sincere interest and gratuitous labors in behalf ot his students, we, the

manhood, We depart as the truit ot his unrestrained labors. With humility
and gratitude we pray that we may be sound truit - worthy exponents of
the high ideals established within us in order to be an asset both to God

TO HIS EXCELLENCY, BISHOP JAMES E. CASSIDY
Upon the occasion of the celebration of your Golden Anniversary of
Ordination to the Holy Priesthood, vve feel that our personal thanks should
be expressed in gratitude for one particular act of your administration of
this diocese,-that of bringing Monsignor James Coyle High School into
existence. Though there are many other acts, we feel that this alone was of a
sufficiently personal nature that no one but ourselves, who have been in-
fluenced directly, could adequately thank you. As our course within these
walls draws to a close, we, in parting, wish by this expression to assure you
of our sincere gratitude.

Tl-lE DRAMATIC CLUB
Acting is but one of the many opportunities of-
fered a high school student to develop within himself
the art of self-expression, By participating in such
undertakings, the faculties of concentration and re-
tention are exercised. This was the case of the twelve
hopeful thespians as they began the long, tedious
work of preparing this year's production, "The Big
Help," under the direction of Brother Theophilus,
C.S.C. As is the case of all knowledge, the end fully
rewards all efforts undertaken in its attainment,
BROTH ER TH EOPH ILUS, C.S.C.
The plot, of this year's presentation, centered
around the short-tempered and bellowing Mr. Hop-
ford Uohri Driscolll, whose chief concern was his
election to the office of Alderman. These efforts
were constantly interrupted by the many problems
that arose within his own family, The entrance of the
aesthetic Gail Parkhurst Uohn Lancasterl served as
a catalysis to cause a chain reaction in a series of
Gail soon finds himself at-
tracted to Jackie l-lopford llvlaureen Mclvlanusl,

the assistance of her movie-minded sister, Janet
lGertrude Zavvackil and her "not-too-bright" boy
friend, Bob Davenhall lCharles Gradyl, whose fatlfer
happens to be opposing Mr, l-lopford for the Office
of Alderman, lnterwoven is the story of Claude l-lcp-

force his father to give the required permission.

This year's Debate Club found itself faced
with two varied and interesting problems for
discussion. During the Fall season, the topic
touched upon the issue of the day by challeng-
ing the justification of the l-louse's un-Ameri-
can Activities Committee. With the opening of
the Spring debating session, the topic was al-
tered to treat the subject of outdoor advertis-
ing. Although both subjects demanded totally
different treatments, this year's team arose to
the attack in the Narragansett lnterscholastic
Under the directorship of Mr. John O'Neill,
the Club sent two teams in the arena of mental
combat. Representing the negative were Mor-
gan Powers and Antone Luongo, with Joseph
Delaney and Roger Araujo as substitutes. De-
fending the affirmative's position were William
Briggs and Edward Selleck, with Richard Bel-
more and Francis Boyes in the understudy

During the school year many events occur in
which the Stage Technicians play a necessary
and an important role. Some of their activities
during this past year included the remodeling
of the existing stage set and the building of
new pieces, during Thanksgiving vacation, in
order to create tor the audience the l-lopford
home in "The Big Help." This work required the
sawing of lumber, the driving of nails, the
swishing ot paint brushes, the arrangements of
lights and those problems back stage during
the actual presentations. The creation of the
roof-top ot an oriental palace for the Christmas
assembly proved to be their next assignment.
Also on their agenda was the stage setting tor
the Annual Band Concert. Although this small
group of students do not receive prominent
recognition for their labors, they freely devote
their time to make this invaluable contribution
in support of those activities which require their

Journalism, as a tool ot the people, has become a

Where most gf me "work" IS accomphshed, Mr Poweridrrves his point home,
Under the direction of Brother Cyrinus,
CSC., the COYLE WARRIOR entered its
thirteeth year of publication, as a printed paper,
to serve its designated purpose of bringing to
the entire student body the activities of various
groups within the family of Coyle. By present-
ing the aspects of Catholic Action as practiced
by the various organizations, it also fulfilled the
obligation of the Catholic Press, that of ac-
quainting students with the various ways in
which they may serve their Church, their coun-
try, and their school.
Last year the WARRIOR attempted, as an
experiment, to produce its paper entirely
from the funds allotted this organization from
the Activity Fee which necessitated a dimin-
ished form of the paper, At the requests of the
students this Fall, the WARRIOR again re-
turned to its original format which was made
possible by the solicitation of advertisments.
The large scale edition, as it reached the stu-
dents throughout the year, has fulfilled all ex-

As a newspaper cannot be the sole publica-

many hours of labor, they were able to produce
a paper deserving the gratitude of the student
body. Stimulated by the immediate interest
taken by theistudents, the members of the
staff were more than willing to give their free
time to gathering material, to proof-reading,
and to preparing dummies, required to develop
a better newspaper.

Organized during the early days of Coyle,
the Band has served to develop the cultural life
and to teach a worthy manner in which to use
leisure time, in order to round out the total
personality of the student body. lt has become
an asset to the school by its participation in the
activities of the football season, and, in its own
right, by its annual Spring Concert. The spec-
tators at the games will remember the preci-
sion maneuvers and the varied formations exe-
cuted on the playing field during half time
under the direction of Brother Renatus, CSC.,
and carried out by the band officers George
Horan, President, Thomas Moran, Student Di-
rector, John Kearns, Drum Major, Henry Fann-
ing, Manager, and Charles Souza, Librarian.
ln addition to their half-time displays, the
Band spends much time in the preparation of
the Annual Concert. This year's concert, truly
a major event, was held on May 9th, The varied
program included a series of popular overtures
arranged for concert band work such as Oliva-
doti's "CarnivaI of Roses" and ButcheI's melo-
dic "Shalimar." No Band Concert is considered
complete without a section totally devoted to
traditional marches delivered with brilliant
trumpet work and military snap Besides those
long standing favorites of this type of music,
the Band presented Afford's "Colonel Bogey"
and McCoy's "Lights Out" which found imme-
diate audience approval.
In acknowledgement of their faithful service
and the fulfillment of the requirements, Mono-
grams were awarded this year to Thomas Gug-
lielmo, George Horan, and Thomas Moran,

The l948 Christmas Prom, presented by the
Junior Class for the second consecutive year,
proved to be a grand success to more than one
hundred couples in attendance. The elaborate
decorations, the fruits of the Dance Commit-
tee's labors under the direction of Brother
Ralph, CSC, well merited the praise it re-
ceived as it marked one ot the high lights of
the evening's festivities. Numerous lighted
trees adorned the walls of the auditorium,
while, suspended from the overhead streamers,
brilliant sparkles representing snow crystals
added to the wintry atmosphere.
The music of Artie Shaw lent an air ot
sophistication to the dance, except for the
traditional comedy number which has become
increasingly popular with the years, Much to
the pleasure of those in attendance, a number
of requests were honored by "Maestro" Shaw.
Adding to the dignity ot the social evening
were the chaperones, Mr, and,Mrs. Gilbert
Chicca, Mr, and Mrs, Frank Pacheco, Mr. and
Mrs. Kenneth Hunt, and Mrs and Mrs, John
Joy, who were greeted with heartfelt applause
upon being presented to the students and their
guests. The event was also honored by the pre-
sence of many alumni, some of whom were
home on leave from various branches of the
The dance itself, the pinnacle of the Christ-
mas vacation, was fully enjoyed by all, most ot
the guests remaining until the very last num-
ber, After the intermission repast, many parti-
cipated in the Grand March which was led by
the officers of the Junior Class and their
guests, With the strains of the last serenade
echoing throughout the room, a galaxy of
starry-eyed dancers reluctantly acknowledged
the termination ot a long awaited but quickly

The Camera Club, under the supervision of
Brother Thaddeus, C.S.C., has been meeting
during the eighth period, once a week to dis-
cuss the basic principles of photography-de-
veloping, printing, and enlarging photographs.
For those more advanced, Brother Thaddeus
has posed the technical problems of toning and
copy work to challenge their activities,
Besides studying the mechanics ot photog-
raphy, this organization has opened to its
members the opportunities of entering their
work in National Contests. ln past years, sev-
eral of the members have earned Certificates
of Merit in the National High School Photo-
graphic Awards Contest,
As an added activity to inspire not only its
own members but other students in school to
greater artistry in their photographic endea-
vours, the Club sponsored, during the Fall, an
exhibition of outstanding examples of the work
produced by other high school students
throughout the nation. The next time you see

With pen and pencil, paint and brush, scis-
sors and pins, the busy members of this organi-
zation, under the direction of Brother Eagan,
CSC, provided the gay and colorful banners,
pennants, streamers, Warrior heads, and
posters which contributed so much to the at-
mosphere and success of the home football
games. The Decorators' Club, revived last year
in an unofficial manner after a long period of
dormancy, proved to be so successful that it
was restored to the calender of Coyle Organi-
zations this Fall This activity deserves praise
for originating and executing this unique meth-
od of arousing and sustaining extra show of
spirit connected with football. The members,
few as they were, offered their Saturday morn-
ings on each of the home game days to promote
this display of Warrior ardor in support of their
team. lt is the hope that this "infant" in the list
of extra-curricular activities, will prosper with
each succeeding year in order to serve the
school in an even greater capacity.

After weeks of preparation, eleven finalists,
chosen from the Freshmen and Sophomore Classes,
paced nervously behind the blue curtains as they
awaited the Master of Ceremonies to announce their
names. For several, this activity marked their first
opportunity to appear before their assembled class-
mates. One by one the pieces they had chosen were
recited - now impassioned, now pleading - as they
interpreted the author's words in an attempt to win
the audience, the judges and the coveted Father
Dolan Declamation Medals.
The last speaker had finished, an excited buzi
arose from the audience as all awaited the judges'
verdicts. Tension increased as Edward Selleck, the
Master of Ceremonies, began to read the Medalist's
names. William Hurley captured First Honors for
the second year with his recitation of "The Ride of
Collin's Grave". Joseph Delaney's treatment of "Our
Responsibility As A Nation" earned Second Honors,
while Henry Fanning won Third Honors with his
"Liberty or Death" speech. The other contestants
and their selections were: Roger Araujo, "The
American Experiment", Dale Bellerose, "The Charge
of the Light Brigade", Leo Harlow, Hamlet's "To Be
Or Not To Be", Paul Najim, "Gunga Din", John
O'Toole, "The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver", Ray-
mond Perra, "Antony's Funeral Oration", Raymond
Walsh, "The Definition of a Gentleman", and Peter
Wayner, "My Last Duchess".
ln addition to the Bishop Cassidy Medals in Ora-
tory, the honor of Class Orator for the Commence-
ment exercises formed an incentive towards a scho-
lastic attitude in the competition among the mem-
bers of the Junior and Senior Classes. After weeks of
careful research and preparation, the many hopeful
orators presented their papers and anxiously awaited
the results of the eliminations which were to be
posted the following morning bearing the names of
those elected, from a group of fourteen, to compete
in the finals. When the awaited list appeared, it bore
the names of two Juniors, Francis Boyes, "Com-
munism on the Move", and, David Gregg, "Social-
ized Medicine", along with those of four Seniors,
John Cronin, "Humanity Debased", John Driscoll,
"Man Must Work", Joseph Mastromarino, "The
Presidential Term of Office", and Edward Selleck,
"The Christopher's Call To Arms".
One short week later, after several post-school
practice sessions, the day of the final competitions
arrived. Needless to say, the usual signs of nervous-
ness were exhibited but these students speaking
their own thoughts with conviction, showed poise
and, at times, flashes of oratorical prowess. The
judges, having taken all the factors into considera-
tion, awarded the honor of First Place and the title
of Oratorian for the Class of l949, to Edward
Selleck. Joseph Mastromarino was the unanimous
choice of the audience and the Judges for second
place, while the bronze medal of Third l-lonors was
presented to John Driscoll.

Early Sunday morning, November Zl st, many
Coyle students and followers gathered at Saint
Mary's Church for a special Mass before start-
ing their lengthy journey to New York City and
the long anticipated football game with Cardi-
nal Hayes l-ligh of that city. After the Mass,
four busses transported the loyal supporters to
Coyle for breakfast in the cafeteria, About six
o'clock, as the sky in the East began to grey,
began the journey to the great Metropolis,
After much cheering and excitement, the
passengers finally arrived at West Haven, Con-
necticut, the home of the recently constructed
Notre Dame High conducted by the Brothers
of l-loly Cross, where the fans had the oppor-
tunity to stretch their cramped muscles and to
receive nourishment in the school cafeteria.
The Coylelites will long remember the hospl-
tality tendered them on this occasion as the
entire school was open to their inspection while
music drifted through the PA. system.
An hour later the busses were once again on
their way, non-stop to the Tri-borough Bridge
and the Randall Island Stadium, Upon arrival,
everyone was amazed by the immense, beauti-
ful stadium that was to be the scene of that
day's game. Although the Warriors put up a
stubborn fight they went down before an I8-O
Cardinal and Gold score,
After the game, the students and fans were
again aboard their conveyances for a sight-see-
ing trip through the City Under the gay lights
and towering buildings, everybody had a won-
derful time singing the school songs, shouting
Fruit do-nuts and coffee before starting. . . We're on our way . . . West Haven: Who has the key?
cheers, and above all, admiring the great spec-
tacles of "Gotham," as the busses rolled
through crowded Times Square.
Leaving behind the noise and glitter of the
busy City, the busses turned northward to begin
the return trip to Taunton, After the first hour
of riding, a stop was made at a roadside restau-
rant for a lunch which had been eagerly antici-
pated by everybody. Their appetites satisfied,
their muscles tired, their voices nearly reduced
to a whisper, the students settled down for a
more or less quiet ride home. 1

On the last day before the beginning of va-
cation, the Freshmen presented their traditional
Christmas Assembly. This year's program was
opened by the joyous notes of favorite Christ-
mas carols played by the Band. Immediately fol-
lowing, the Vested Freshmen Choir, especially
trained for this appearance by Brother Floren-
tius, CSC., presented a vocal tribute to the
Birth of Our Lord through the rendering of four
numbers, "l-lark The Herald Angels Sing,"
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "O Little
Town of Bethlehem," and "We Three Kings,"
accompanied by l-lenry Fanning on the piano.
As the last notes reverberated across the au-
ditorium, the curtains parted to reveal the play
which had been rehearsed for two weeks under
the watchful eye of Brother Eagan, C.S.C.
Their selection, "lt Was Written ln The Star,"
treated the theme of the three Wisemen and
their choice of suitable gifts that were worthy
to be presented to the long anticipated
Messiah. The two scene play had for its setting
the palace roof of Lord Balthazar Uohn Regol,
one of the Wisemen. As the play opened
Sofiamor lRoger Araujol and Sikrit lAlfred
Lenardsonl, members of the palace staff, were
excitedly awaiting the arrival of Lord Gaspard
Uoseph Delaneyi and Lord Melchoir Uoseph
l-lopkinsl for the star of the prophecy had ap-
peared in the sky.
When the auditorium lights went on again
after the last ucurtain, the approving applause
of the upperclassmen and the faculty expressed
their appreciation to the members of the Fresh-
men Class for their many hours of practice to
prepare this program
Father Bourgoin's and Brother Richard's
Christmas Messages stressed the theme that
this season should not be simply a day marked
by the reception of gifts, but should be a time
in which one could serve others, not merely by
giving gifts but, more important, by offering
thanks to God in Whose memory all these pro-
ceedings take place.
The next part of the program was marked
by the awarding of the long awaited Football
Monograms. ln the opinion of Coach Burns and
the other members of the Board, twenty-one
members of this year's squad merited the mon-
ogram award which brought ioy to those so
honored and served as an inspiration and a goal
for others to obtain in the future.
The Christmas Assembly was closed by a
community sing directed by Brother Thaddeus,
C.S.C., and the Recessional number played by

Thomas A Kempis
Each year as Holy Mother Church, in her liturgy,
turns her attention to the sufferings of her Founder,
Jesus Christ, in commemoration of His three great
acts of love--the redemption of the human race, and
the institution of the Sacraments of Penance and
of the Holy Eucharist-Coyle students withdraw
momentarily from the distractions of the world to
examine themselves in their relationship with God
and to plot a course of life which will prove their
love and their gratefulness as recipients of these
gifts of Divine Love.
This retreat from all earthly confusion is charac-
terized by a spirit of silence which lends the mind to
acts of contemplation and adoration, averts the
hearts to God and permits a resultant realization of
our ingratitude to God for His innumerous benefits
thus leading to a firm resolution to correct these
Along with this most essential inventory of the
past year with its beneficial effects, the retreat
permits the student to reflect upon the choice of
the road he wishes to transverse in his quest of
happiness and to question himself as to the state of
life most suited to his personality. For this reason,
the youth of today need an opportunity to withdraw
temporarily from the world in order to ponder over
the vocation in life to which God is calling him. Just
as the sound ofa dropped pin is imperceptible in the
din of a subway station, yet quite distinctly heard in
an empty room, so also is God's grace and bidding
difficult to distinguish in the confusion of ordinary
existence while quite easily understood by the mind
which is elevated and dedicated to Him in medita-
Thus it is that annually Coyle students withdraw
from their ordinary occupations to dedicate the
first three days of Holy Week to Christ in honor of
His great love for us. Father Edward V. Winsper,
S. J., the Retreat Master, chose Christ the leader,
the fighter, as the central theme of his series of
lgnatian conferences. Developing this theme, Father
stressed in particular Christ's manliness and His
fighting spirit as those qualities most appealing to
the students in order to draw them more perfectly
to our crucified Lord, as their Model. His insatiable
"thirst" for our love and petition, His infinite yearn-
ing for our eternal welfare compelled Him to present
us two salutary gifts, that of His own Mother to aid
us as our heavenly Mother, and that of Himself in
the Most Blessed Sacrament, to be the Food of our
soul, our Divine Nourishment,
The three days of exercises terminated with the
imparting of the Papal Blessing followed by Bene-
dction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Each stu-
dent left the chapel-auditorium feeling more fully
prepared to celebrate the mysteries of the Passion
with greater appreciation during the latter days of
the Holy Week.
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION AND Tl-IE TOTAL MAN
Paganistic humanism sums its principles into the text that man alone, and by himself,
works out his salvation. We see the dialectical banner of Marx raised today throughout
the world proclaiming that man does not need God but that he must and can achieve his
own destiny and salvation. lf this be true then man is free from any jurisdiction or de-
pendency upon God, Difficulties arise from the fact that human society and everything
which surrounds man bears a likeness to God and shows its relationship to the Creator.
Thus it is that the Marxist, the Communist, to gain his selfish end, must first purge the
Creator from the mind of mankind, to proclaim an emancipation of the intellect from
that one object which can satisfy it.
To combat this malignant growth, Christian humanism maintains, since the time of
Christ, that man is not a creature of isolation but an intrinsic organ of society which binds
him in service to his fellowman and in reverence to his Creator. No longer is the end of
man limited to his materialistic comforts but is expanded to include a preparation for
the Kingdom of God in eternity.
Thus it is that Catholic education throughout the world has insisted upon the principle
that all physical and mental training of man be Christo-centric. With Christ as our com-
pass we may be assured that the voyage upon which we are sailing will be a safe one. To
enable the attainment of this end, we students of Coyle have religious instruction in our
obligations and duties to our God and our fellowman. This instruction does not end with
the religion class but permeates all our undertakings in the search for truth. In times of
difficulty we are taught to petition God for assistance, and, in times of prosperity to
direct heavenward a hymn of thanksgiving. Thus is the manner in which we are formed in
order that each may better fulfill his obligations as a Catholic and as an American,

Having lost most of the I947 team through gradu-
ation, the Coyle Warriors opened their season with
a comparably inexperienced squad. Plagued with an
unprecedented number of injuries throughout the
season, the team fought gallantly to end the season
Coyle I3 -
Gerry McNally and Andy Raposa led the Warriors,
in their curtain raising game, to defeat a spirited
Fairhaven eleven on Father Woodley Field. Vin Joyal
accounted for the extra point by his kick through the
uprights following the second touchdown.
ln the first period, after taking the ball on their
opponent's thirty-seven yard line, the Warriors drove
to the twenty. Skippy Lewis picked up five yards on
with a record of four victories against five defeats.
Their finest game was the hard fought battle against
Durfee in which the Fall River team barely managed
to edge a last period victory, 25 - 20.
an end run with McNally plowing through his own
left tackle on the next play for the first score. Coyle
again took the ball, in the second period, sending
Raposa galloping twenty yards around end. After
Butch Maguire threw a pass to Lewis, Raposa went
around right guard for the second score. Joyal's con-
version raised the score to i3 --O. Sherman Kinney,
the outstanding Blue and White back, scored their
only tally on his end run during the final period.
Coyle Z6 - Attleboro 31
The Warriors suffered their first defeat at the
hands of a strong Attleboro squad at Hayward Field
by a slim margin of five points. Maguire sparked the
offensive play for Coyle by his passing and running
plays and he set up all the touchdowns in the War-
riors' spectacular second half comeback. After trail-
ing 25 -6 at half time, the Warriors showed signs
of that old Coyle fight by running the score within
five points of that held by the highly favored Attle-
Maguire threw two touchdown passes to Joyal and
one to Jim Hill. Later a fourth pass set up the final
touchdown which was scored by Paul Silva. Joyal con-
verted two of his four tries for the Warrior's extra
points, John Cumiskey and Ed Roster stood out in
Coyle line. Two of the Attleboro tallies were scored
by Marcoccio. Randell, Thomson and Young scored
the other three touchdowns with Cassidy kicking the
The second victory of the season came as the War-
riors edged out Barnstable High on a fourth period
score ending the game l4 - 7. Silva and Dave Shea-
han scored the two Coyle touchdowns with Joyal
kicking both of the conversion points. The records
show that Coyle gained 204 yards by their running
and passing during the afternoon.
ln the first period, Brown faded back, threw a
twenty-five yard pass to Bearse who ran the last thir-
ty for the game's opening score, Ashley then skirted
the left end of the Warrior's line for the extra point.
After Fred Murphy blocked an attempted Barnstable
punt, Dick Pickett fell on the ball giving Coyle pos-
session on their opponent's twenty-five yard line.
Three plays later Maguire threw a pass to Sheahan in
the end zone for the Warrior's first tally. Later in the
final period, Silva crashed through his own left guard
for the second touchdown from the Barnstable thir-
teen yard line.
Coyle 0- New Bedford 33
A crippled Coyle eleven went down to a defeat at
the hands of a strong New Bedford team at Sargeant
Field, 33 AO. Suffering the absence of seven first-
string players, the Warriors were handicapped from
the beginning. During the game, the second defeat
in four games, Silva was removed from the game with
a fractured left leg following the opening kick-off
and Jack Twomey was injured in a clash during the
The touchdowns for the New Bedford eleven were
Coyle 0 -Taunton 7
Taunton defeated Coyle in a close contest for the
City Title by a third period tally which proved to be
the deciding factor of the game. The win, the first
by Taunton in the past four years of competition for
the Lions Club Trophy, was predicted to be a iugger-
naut rolling over a crippled Coyle eleven. But Captain
Keough, of the Orange and Black, scored only one
tally on a pass from Charlie l-loye after the ball had
been advanced to the forty yard line,
The Warriors outgained their city opponents in
total yardage for the game by gaining eighty-six
yards on rushing to Taunton's one hundred and eigh-
teen, coupled with seventy-nine Blue and Gold yards
on passing compared to seventeen yards by their ri-
vals. An outstanding play of the game was Raposa's
thirty yard run around left end for the longest single
gain of the game.
Coyle 6-Vincentian Institute 0
To maintain their record of never having lost to
the Albany team, the Warriors gained their third vic-
tory of the season by defeating V. I., 6- O. A fourth
period touchdown by Raposa accounted for the War-
rior's only points. Rivalry between these two schools
scored by Watkins, Chapman, Nickerson and two by
Taylor, The extra points were accounted for by two
Louro kicks and a Nickerson pass to Gilium. The
Warriors threatened to score three times but were
unable to bring them into reality.
Capt. Cumiskey and Coach Burns check strategy.
was instituted in l938 for a two year period with the
current series being resumed in l946.
McNally made the longest run of the afternoon
by dashing off right guard for a gain of twenty-eight
yards As the third period ended, the Warriors were
in possession of the ball on the Vincentian thirty-two
Coyle 20 -
A strong Durfee squad, paced by the running and
passing attacks of Joe Andrews, nosed out a 25 - 20
win over Coyle in the Armistice Day game.Durfee
took an early lead chalking up twelve points while
holding the Warriors scoreless. Coyle fought back
hard in the second period, not only matching the Fall
River score but to take the lead at the half, 20 -l 2.
The Warrior scores were claimed by Raposa, McNally,
and Dick Gracia, the extra points were kicked by
yard line. After the opening of the fourth quarter,
the ball was advanced to the seven by three succes-
sive runs where Raposa picked it up to run through
his own right guard for the score, Maguire, Joyal,
McNally, Raposa, Cumiskey and l-lart stood out for
the Warriors while Wilson, Condon, Cos and O'l-lara
demonstrated the Albany style.
The Durfee team struck back in the third period to
come within two points of a tie, the scoreboard read-
ing 2O-- l8 in favor of Coyle. During the final min-
utes of the fourth quarter, the strong Red and Black
team scored to take the lead and the game 25 -- 20.
Andrew, the star back of Durfee, scored the entire
twenty-five points for his team making him one of
the leading scorers in the state with one hundred
forty-three points in his favor,
Coyle 0-Cardinal Hayes 18
The Warriors lost their fifth game of the season
to a powerful Cardinal l-layes team in New York City,
i8 aa- O, The win was the sixth in seven games for the
New Yorkers. This year's score was nearly the reverse
of Coyle's 20 7 victory over the Cardinal and Gold
Neither team was able to push across a score in the
first quarter. The first score came as Caccoppoli spir-

ited the ball across the line following Rossetti's spec-
tacular reception of a l-layes' pass. The second tally
by the New Yorkers came in the final period with
Graduis running seventy-four yards, Caccoppoli ac-
counted for the final tally as he carried the ball over
with only one minute remaining in the game. Captain
Cumiskey, Armund, Armando, Annunziato and
Raposa stood out for the Warriors with Brennan, Ros-
setti and Caccoppoli as the Cardinal and Gold heroes.
There they go . . .
Coyle 7 - Walpole 6
The traditional Thanksgiving day clash between
Coyle and Walpole proved to be a thrilling finale as
the Warriors ended the game with a one point lead,
7 - 6. The loss was the eighth in ten starts for Wal-
pole, winning one and tying the other.
Maguire scored the first tally of the contest on a
quarterback sneak from the three yard line in the
first period, less than three minutes after the kick-
off. Joyal's attempt for the extra point was successful
giving the Warriors the winning lead.
The Walpole team held the driving Blue and Gold
scoreless in the second half and managed to chalk up
one score. ln the third period Cisternelli carried the
ball seventy yards behind beautiful blocking by his
team mates only to be tackled by Joyal after over-
coming a twenty yard lead. A few plays later Cister-
nelli gained his revenge by carrying the ball across
from the two yard line. Mike O'Grady blocked the
Walpole attempt for the extra point and saved the
victory for Coyle.

With five varsity men graduated last year,
Coach Burns had to depend upon his two vet-
erans, Skippy Lewis and Frank Tosti, for the
backbone of his l948-49 squad. The Coach, a
firm believer in hard work and aggressiveness,

chose for his team only those who demon-
strated these qualities through the weeks of
ln making their first appearance, the War-
riors suffered a 45 - 30 defeat at the hands of
a much improved St. Sebastian team. The Coyle
men had a poor start and did not start to func-
tion as a team until they encountered thc
strong New Bedford team. The Warriors had
lost seven games and won only three up to this
game. None of the wins happened to be in the
Bristol Country league. Their close defeat by
one point to their city rivals, Taunton, 37 -36
proved to be a stinging blow, With their past
record coupled to the fact that New Bedford
ranked second in the league with only one de-
feat, little was expected in this conflict, The
score mounted slowly for both teams until the
dying moments of the game when Coyle scored
the tying basket bringing the count 27 -27,
Roger Morgan, playing his first minutes in a
varsity game, received a pass from Captain
Lewis and shot from outside the bucket to
break the tie. New Bedford tried to tie the
game again but their shot missed its mark.
Lewis nabbed the ball on the rebound and was
able, with the aid of his team mates, to freeze
the ball giving Coyle an upset game, 294 27
Only two games later, the Blue and Gold
turned in another upset defeating the much
publicized Attleboro, 33 -30, After a record
of two upsets over two of the strongest teams
in the league, the newspapers knighted the
Warriors with the accolade of "Jack the Giant

As a new baseball season comes into view, it would be appropriate to
review some of the highlights from the many games played last year
which remain predominantly in our minds, The "super-duper" pitching
turned in by "Skippy" Lewis during the ninth inning rally over New
Bedford, Frank Shea's death-dealing hit for two bases that produced
the winning run for the Warriors, and the numerous other thrills that
give that added zest needed to make this sport the nation's favorite
l-laving had a fairly successful baseball season last year, Coach Burns
is looking towards the l949 season with searching eyes . Graduation
claimed such players as Leo Tuite, who was chosen out of a large field
of competition to represent Coyle as catcher on the BOSTON POST
ALL STAR TEAM, "Reese" LeVasseaur, the alert and capable second
baseman, Billy Sullivan, whose strong and accurate outfield throwing
arm will be missed along with Archie Franco's fine playing in the first
base position. This year's team will be well supplied with such seasoned
players as "Skippy" Lewis and William Warren in the pitcher's box, Ray
Desmarais and Vin Joyal defending the field, John Conforti for the
fourth year as short-stop and Bob Silva at the third base position,
should be the combination to produce a highly successful season.

Physical education holds the important
position of a bulwark to every phase of
the curriculum of Catholic education. At
Coyle, every physically able freshman and
sophomore is required to devote one pe-
riod a week to this wholesome, physical
activity. The main emphasis of the pro-
gram is devoted primarily to group-com-
petitive athletics consisting of basket-
ball, touch-football, soccer, softball and
other similiar group games. If personal
happiness and service are worthy educa-
tional ideals, what better opportunity is
provided for the realization of these ends
than the happiness derived from partici-
pation in group athletics at Coyle?
The principle objectives of the physical
education program may be summarized
in terms of their educational values: first,
to promote skill in various games and
sports, second, to develop such desirable
qualities as sportmanship co-operation,
self-reliance, and friendliness, third, to
develop group loyalties which enable a
student to put forth his best efforts sub-
iugating individual interests to the wel-
fare of the group, and fourth, to provide
healthful exercise which contributes to
the development of the individual.
Thus it can be seen that the many de-
sired outcomes of the physical education
program parallel those desired in the Ca-
tholic education of the mind, the heart,
and the hand.

TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW
Thus we bring to a close this, the l949 edition of the COYLE
REVIEW amid the varied symptoms ot Spring. We have attempted
within these pages to illustrate some of the many ways in which the
mind, the heart, and the hand of the Coyle student is trained in order
to produce a total entity, a well-rounded personality that will not only
be an asset to the individual but to the society in which he will one day
take his place For some of us the closing ofthe school year, so quickly
elapsed, marks our last at Coyle, while to others, it has only been the
commencement, or another stepping stone towards the termination
of our high school lite. For those who are venturing into a confused
world, a world worrying about the possibility of another depression,
a world engaged in the death struggle ot a cold war between two
mighty ideologies, a world trying to solve the problems ot a recent
military victory, and to those who remain behind, this year will hold
many cherished memories from which to draw our strength for tomor-
row. What lies beyond the horizon in tomorrow only Divine Providence
knows and time will reveal, Formed as Christo-centric men, we will
meet the challenge with determined courage and taith.
