MATTI-ll W O Nll
From the vaulted heights of
heaven to the humble cell of
their priests, the roll call of the
Order of Our Lady of Mount
Carmel had been truly a glorious
one. Founded by the prophet
Elias, the order dwelt on Mt.
Carmel in Palestine until the
twelfth century when it was
driven from its own land by
the Saracen host. Although eyed
askance by Europe still under
the fostering protection of
Mary it rapidly grew and
gained the affection of all with
whom it came in contact Re
markable for piety a leader in
the missionary field justly cele
brated as a teacher Carmel has
become one of the foremost re
ligious organizations of the
In Mt Carmel High School

spiritual and the material

The idea of a Catholic educational in-
stitution in Woodlawn was conceived in
1902, and carried out in the founding of St.
Cyril's College. It became evident, however.
in 1924, that the school had outgrown its
old quarters-necessitating an expansion
program which resulted in the present Mt.
Carmel, the name being changed at that time,
in honor of Qur Lady of Mt. Carmel. the
special patroness of the school and of the
Order. The old building is still being used
for a chapel, a priests' refectory, a school
cafeteria, and a library, besides accommodat-
ing the offices of the Little Flower Society,
For location, environment, and accessi-
bility, Mt. Carmel is ideally situated. The
school building faces east on Dante Avenue,
at Sixty-fourth Street. On the north is the
Carmelite Monastery and on the south, St.
Cyril's Parish Rectory.
To the south is a district almost exclu-
sively residential, and yet a moment's walk
in a northerly direction will bring one to the
shoppingfsection of Woodlawn. The Elec-
trified llliinois Central Suburban Service has
a station within a block of the school. and
providesifast convenient service for the entire
South Slgore district, as well as for South
Chicago, Pullman, Blue Island, Gary, East
Chicago, 'and Whiting. The Chicago Sur-
face Lines cars are also within a block of the
school, offering transportation to and from
all directions: the Elevated Lines, a scant
two blocks from the school, reach practically
every locality north and west. The Chicago
Motor Coach Company's route through
Jackson Park serves as still another means
of conveyance. Thus we see that every facil-
ity is at hand for the safe and speedy trans-
portation of the student.

The school itself is housed in a spacious
modern building. It is perfectly equipped with
large, well-lighted, and well-ventilated class-
rooms, excellent laboratories, lecture halls, a new
gymnasium, and an up-to-date swimming pool.
In connection with the latter two, provision
has been made for lockers for visiting as well as
home teams. The gymnasium contains all types
of athletic equipment regular instruction in the
use of which is g1ven the students for exercise
and for the conditioning of the various teams
The latest innovation is a radio amplifying sys
tem to simplify announcement making
Apart from the material side Mt Carmel
has received the highest possible rating scholas
tically It is accredlted by the University of
Illinois and the North Central Association of
Secondary Schools and Colleges This affiliation
carries with it the privilege of entry without
examination to any University or College recog
nized by these organizations

The certificate pr1v1lege Centrance upon recom
mendatlon of the faculty? IS held with three
large Eastern Universities namely Georgetown

In order to ma1nta1n this accred1tat1on as
well as their own high standards of s holarship
the Carmelite Fathers have outl1ned a strict
course of study which IS designed primarily for
the best interests of the student body During
the first two years all the students are required
to do practically the same work w1th the excep
tion of being permitted the choice of a language
In third year several electives are offered and

In addition to religious instruction there is a
definitely planned spiritual system of training.
Holy Mass is celebrated twice each Week, on
Tuesday morning for the Freshmen and Sopho-
mores, and on Thursday for the Juniors and
Seniors. After Mass a short instruction is given
on some point of current spiritual interest to the
students. ln order to encourage frequent recep-
tion of the sacraments of Penance and Holy
Communion, confessions are heard all day each
Friday, and an opportunity is given the boy to
make use of this during his study period.
The first Friday of each month is general
Communion for the entire student body Con
fessions are heard the day before and provisions
re made for the students breakfasts after Mass
Holy Hour is also observed on first Friday
On Wednesday students are urged to attend the

We stand upon the threshold of Worldly
turmoil-we pause to recall those happy mem-
ories of the friendship of high-school days-
in review pass the activities-Qscholastic, athletic
and social-that have been enjoyed by the Class
of '37 in its four years march to graduation.
To our minds come the warm friendships
-the close contacts With fellow-students-the
guiding hands of the teachers-the thrills of
competition-memories of the bonds which
link us to the Class of '37.
Soon we will become figures in a new and
different world, yet these prep-school friendships
will remain a binding force-the old, familiar
faces of classmates and instructors may soon disf
appear, but fond recollections Will prolong the
memorable days spent in Carmel's halls-and
so the 1937 ORIFLAMME Will be instrumental
in recalling to mind that period when life was
happiestfmay the cherished recollections of the
Class of '37 be forever preserved in this-THE
ORIELAMME OE FRIENDSHIP.
September, l933-for us, the beginning of a new life-a strange,
yet exciting life-quickly we adapted ourselves to the spirit of Carmel,
both in and out of the classroom-we set a new standard for Freshmen
in scholastic standing--Five of us were members of the Lightweight
football squad-one earned a place on the Lightweight basketball
team to the minor sports boxing wrestling track and swimming
we contributed many future outstanding athletes Five were mem
bers of the Student Council the newly formed Junior Literary and
Debating Clubs together with the other clubs attracted an exception
ally large number of us to the Band we gave twenty musicians one
was a member of the highly successful play Depend On Me
As Sophomores we contributed much to Carmel s act1v1t1es
adding many outstanding achievements to our record already three
of us were of the Monogram Club three more received their letters
for their work on the Heavyweight football team nine were on the
Lightweight squad four on Track and seven on the Swimming team
we had three members on the Lightweight basketball team we
contributed six members to the Wrestling and Boxing teams seven
the annual play Nora Nobody had three in the cast The scholastic
standards of Freshmen year were upheld and further advanced
Juniors Upper classmen at last Friendships grew stronger
activities broader as always athletics were foremost in our minds
but now we took more interest in the social life of the school our
Junior Prom was a tremendous success eleven of us were members
of the Band thirteen found admittance to the Monogram Club the
annual play Shannons of Broadway attracted three from our ranks
Football received seventeen from the Junior class twelve plaved on
the Heavyweight team and five were members of the winning Light
weights three of us performed on the Lightweight basketball team
the Heavyweight team was strengthened by two players ln the minors
track golf tennis wrestling boxing and swimming the Junior
class showed admirably the other organizations sponsored by the
school welcomed the Jun ors who swelled their ranks
joined the Orchestra-and the Band profited by claiming nine of us-

- AS SENIORS
The grand finale draws near. As Seniors we have contributed to
the Carmel glories in footballfeighteen Seniors fought for the Brown
and White - Heavyweight basketball had four, and the Catholic
Lightweight Basketball Champions had three, one the captain. Car-
mel's Christmas Dance, one of the high-lights of the mid-year social
season, was ably sponsored by the Seniors and proved a splendid suc-
cess. Organization claimed many of us, dramatics took twelve, the
Art Club four, the Chemistry Club fifteen, while Cisca, the Monogram
Club and the Anti-Communist Club were made up chiefly of Seniors.
Track, golf, intramural sports and boxing were well represented
by us. They had ten in the band. Nine were on the Student Council.
The social year was closed with our great Prom which all will long
remember. Soft lights-enchanting music-a symphony of beautiful
colors-truly a Carmel affair.
And now it remains for us to say farewell to our school and to
our many friends and pals. Our gratitude to those who shared our
joys, our triumphs, our disappointments, long will the memories of
those years spent in her halls be fond recollections. No matter how
divergent our walks of life . . . the days at Carmel will ever be with
us, an inspiration to carry onward to our last, great reunion.

True men of Carmel? Our pride in the
Class of '38 is well-founded. for time and time
again they have proved their mettle. The un-
limited enthusiasm, the dogged perseverance.
and the boundless energy which the Juniors
have displayed in the scholastic. athletic, and
social fields proclaims them to be the ideal
In the classroom the Juniors have done ex-
ceedingly well, as is evidenced by the large
number of Honor Cards to which they have con-
sistently laid claim.
The Class of '38 has done more than its
share to perpetuate Carmel's fame in athletics.
The heavyweight football team welcomed sev-
enteen Juniors into its ranks----ten won letters
-twenty-IWO claimed recognition on the light-
weight grid team---the heavyweight basketball
squad was assisted by the invaluable work of
three Juniors--the ponies coveted four---the
bantams five-and the Hys sixethey gave eight
men to the track team-they also contributed
seven for wrestling--and six for boxingfthe
Juniors entered seven teams in the intramural
basketball tournament, and were represented by
a large number of students in the free-throw and
handball contests--twelve found places on the
Band--five in the popular orchestra and four in
the classical aggregation---three joined the Ger-
man Band--Cisca, the Art Club, the Mis-
sion Club, and the Monogram Club found these
third year students among their most active
members-The Class of '38 undertook and sup-
ported one of the most successful Junior proms
ever sponsored at Carmel.
The Class of '38 has always upheld Car-
mel's high standards, and as Seniors. they will
prove worthy and capable leaders.

JOSEPH VON ALBADE
Stalwarts of 1939! Truly has the Sopho-
more Class been able to leave an indelible mark
for scholastic achievement. athletic attainment,
and social prominence.
Many of the lads supplemented school en-
deavor by capturing the spotlight on the
gridiron, the basketball floor, and on the track
team. Their record for sports follows: the foot-
ball team tackled seven-the basketball heavies
netted six-six again were on the Catholic
league lightweight cage champs-other repre-
sentatives won honors with the flys and ban-
tams, while the boxing team claimed four.
That their intramural sports were a success
ishevidenced by the fact that seventeen teams
entered the basketball tournament and no less
than fifty joined in the handball play-off.
This vigorous athletic program was bal-
anced by a loyal support in social activities:
Hfteen played on the band-three of our ama-
teur Thespians lent their talents to the Dramatic
Club, while the Cisca, Honor, and Art Clubs
received notable contributions from capable
Indeed, any class that is able to produce such
a noteworthy record in all fields, demands
prophecy of a bright and promising future.

On the threshold of Carmel stands an
anxious group of boys. eager to win laurels in
all Heldsea the Freshmen. Since September, they
have adapted themselves rapidly to high-school
lifee-surging forward in scholarship and carry-
ing the colors of Carmel to even greater
triumphs in sports.
Twenty of the Class of '40 found their
places in lightweight football-live helped boost
the basketball team to its Catholic Champion-
ship. Flyweight basketball and intramural
sports-boxing, wrestling, swimming, and track
eefound willing members among the Freshmen.
Fifteen entered the band, while Dramatics.
Cisca. Art, and other activities were all attended

In its scholastic and athletic ability the Class
of '40 shines brightly, and promises to be a help-
ful factor in the future progress of Mt. Carmel.

Friendship . . . between teacher student, and parent. . . the keynote
of Carmel organizations . . . the epitome of the spirit of Carmel.
Without adequate extra-curricular activities nc education can be
complete . . . it is only there that a a stuaent can express himself to the
fullest. Carmel will always encourage those il" which offer the
student training in social and civic adjustment. A
Student organizations are of vital importan vocational
guides. Whatever interest a student may have in a subject is certain
to be intensified by constant contact with other boys having a kindred
interest. Carmel's widely diversified clubs fit the varying talents of
her many students and develop their independence. Planning a dance,
putting out a school publication, taking part in a play or debate,
creates a spirit of self-reliance which is of vital import.
At Carmel, two distinct types of organizations have been estab-
lished . . . those of parents and those of students. gp.,
These clubs of Carmel serve a dual purpose . . . teachersiggtt a
deeper insight into the habits and characters of their students . . .

To promote a spirit of friendship and comradeship between
the Dads and their sons is the prime objective of the Mt. Carmel
This year for the sake of the students, the Dads have
undertaken many more activities, namely, promoting athletic
events, sponsoring dances, and the encouragement of intra-
mural sports. The Notre Dame night, for the purpose of cre-
ating a fund for the purchase of new football uniforms, was
one of the most successful affairs ever undertaken at Carmel.
A leader among the organizations at Mt. Carmel is the
recently inaugurated St. Albert's Club, composed of those Dads
who have sons in the Carmelite order.
This club was established to bring into closer contact the
fathers of the priests and to act as an additional inspiration to
The organization has a bright future: they are planning
many social functions for the future, whereby the fathers can
raise funds for the benefit of their sons.
Under the able leadership of Mr. Slobig, the Hrst president,
a bright future is in store for this organization.

The purpose of this "Oriflamme of Friendship"
is to give a faithful, vivid picture of Carmel. It is our
desire to portray life at Carmel in its varied phases . . .
the quiet of the chapel hour . . . the studious effort of
the classroom . . . the lighter moods of the recreation
periods . . . the tense atmosphere of the athletic field.
School life means more than the mere acquisition of
knowledge . . . it means Friendship, the basis of all
Inasmuch as the ORIFLAMME has consistently
won the highest journalistic honors . . . Interscholastic
Press Association's "All American" honors . . . Cath-
olic Press Associations "All Catholic" rating . . . The
State of Illinois' merit certificates . . . Columbian
Scholastic Press Association's Gold Medals . . . we feel
a deep responsibility to uphold the traditions estab-
lished by previous ORIFLAMMES. It is our fond hope
that this, the "Oriflamme of Friendship," will be a
worthy addition to those of the past.
The ORIFLAMMES repeated success and brilliant
record in the field of high school journalism can be
attributed in great part to the perseverance zeal and
helpful co operation of Father Andrew L Weldon
who has been as in years past a helpful adviser in the
compilation of the ORIPLAMMI3 We of the staff are
grateful to Father Andrew s generous aid and for his
co operative efforts in the editing of this volume
In our dedication we have chosen a man inti
mately associated xx ith life at Carmel a man whose
wonderful character and vs arm heart endear him to all
who come in contact with him It is only fitting that
this Oriflamme of Friendship should honor one who
so personifies this quality and who is still so much a
part of Carmel Father Hilary Doswald pioneer prin
cipal and president is responsible for the shaping of
the traditions that make the Carmel of today We
hope that in Mt Carmel High he will find realized his
cherished dreams of yesterday We offer him the Ori
fiamme of Friendship as a slight memento of those
long years of arduous work
On behalf of the living Carmel priests pro
fessors and fellow students the OR1PLAMMh bids
the Class of 37 a friendly but regretful farewell Soon
a strange world will be your lot in sharp contrast to
the happy days at Carmel but the memories of the
many friendships and well spent hours at Carmel will
be a source of consolation and an inspiration
Class of 37 Carmel wishes you Godspeed May
the light of divine faith in God and may the warm ties
of human friendship lead ever onward and upward to
your eternal reward

The CARMEL-LITE rolls off the press. A student news-
paper makes its first appearance and that old Carmel spirit
carries it through to the finish line-many times a winner. A
real reflection of current happenings to the students and teams
of Carmel finds its beginnings with the CARMEL-LITE of '37.
This essentially student publication is now climaxed only by
the appearance of the ORIELAMME of '37.
On October 2nd, the first of the bi-monthly editions was
issued and sold rapidly by the local newsboys to an interested
student body eager to read about themselves. The dreams of
an original student publication with "smash" headlines and
sparkling news stories has at last been realized!
Because of close relation between Carmel's students and
the many news stories, the CARMEL-LITE endeavored to play
up flashy angles in its copy and thus provide fast and interest-
ing reading for a critical public. There is no room for a dull
and conservative newspaper in this anything but dull and
conservative student body.
Then, too, the world's greatest Sports' section occupied
over a fourth of the space. With intimate and accurate
reviews of Carmel s many teams in the field of athletics the
sports page was an outstanding feature of the CARMEL LITE
Box scores predlctions and fast moving accounts of athletic
contests made up the colorful page of Sports
In the two broad pages between news and sports
lay the features of the CARMEL LITE Here could be found
the great names of Carmel in the fire of good natured humor
Here the fun and Jokes of school wits found a stage Here
the opinions of the day were aired in typical CARMEL LITE
Much credit is due to Fr Frederic Manion whose advice
nd assistance were of invaluable aid in the establishment of
he CARMI L LITE His determination and spirit were greatly
eflected in the work of the staff
lt is a certainty that the CARMII LITE has not reached
the fullest peak that a publication of its kind may attain
There is ample room for development and expansion in this
Held of journalistic enterprise The class of 37 has initiated
the CARMEL LITE and has given it a fast start The future
years mold it 1nto one of America s finest high school news
papers lt is the sincere desire of the founders that such a feat
shall be accomplished
So good luck to Fr Maurice Anderson and the Junior
otaff of 38 who will strive to further advance this all impor
tant Carmel organization in prowess and repute

THE SENIOR STUDENT COUNCIL
Composed of the Senior Class Ofiicers and one member from each Senior section, this
student council has proposed and planned many dances and activities-two of their greatest
successes being the Holiday Dance and the Senior Prom.
The Senior Council provides direct communication between student and faculty, and
presents to the teachers a more comprehensive student viewpoint as they, being students, are
closer to their own problems and interests.
This year's Council has fulfilled their duties competently, justifying the trust placed
in them by fellow classmates and faculty.
In 1935, Carmel established the Honor Club to promote a spirit of friendship among
those students, who through diligence and perseverance have merited the coveted position of
proficiency finalists. As admission to this club requires that the individual must have been a
proficiency finalist, that is one of the five highest in scholastic standing in his respective
year, it is a distinct privilege to be a member.
In spite of its limited membership, this club is a powerful factor in school life, and
will be one of the outstanding clubs of Carmel in future years.
The Art Club, now a mature organization of eight years, has proved itself time and
again. Its advertisements, by way of posters and showcards, do much to promote other
school activities, and at the same time benefit the Art Club by the practice and experience
they give. The members of the club, under the guidance of Father Victor, have far advanced
in their chosen field, as can be observed by the excellence of their work.
In addition to their regular activities, they joined with the Band in producing one of
the best novelty dances of the year-the penny a pound dance. Instead of charging a stan-
ard price for the bid, one cent was charged for each pound of the girl's weight. Although
new, the idea was a great success. '
From the proceeds of this dance, the club was able to sponsor its annual picnic, another
of its varied activities.
The club has now grown to such an extent that it is almost indispensable. Dances,
athletic programs and social events all depend on it for posters, and its art work has done
much to boost school spirit.
The Chemistry Club, in its second year of
existence, has sought an increase of interest
in high school science, particularly Chemistry,
so that the student may have an appreciable
knowledge which will be useful in everyday
life. With its members it has proved to be
one of Carmels most active bodies. It has
promoted a good spirit throughout the stu-
dent body by sponsoring an annual science
poster contest and several interesting trips to
points of scientific interest. Much credit is
due to our faculty advisor, Father Damian.
We hope that the club will always be a part

"Under the leadership of His Excellency, Bishop Sheil, in order to foster Catholic student
ideals and to develop Catholic leaders, we organize ourselves under the title 'The Sodality of Our
Lady of Mt. Carmel,' in affiliation with the organization known as Chicago Student Catholic
Action." Thus reads the constitution under which Carmel's Cisca unit went under way at the
beginning of its third year of active participation.
The proximate goal of Catholic Action, according to His Holiness, Pope Pius Xl, is
personal holiness. The theme throughout the city, which underlies all Cisca's work, is the
all-embracing doctrine of the Mystical Body of Christ. The whole human race is embraced in
one brotherhood of love. Christ is the Head of the Church and we are His members, and hence
we are members of each other. With this motivation the most ordinary lives and every-day
actions are transformed into sublime and high adventure. By the way in which the doctrine of
the Mystical Body is sweeping through the Church, ample evidence is given of the ever-fruitful
treasury of the Church's doctrine and its ability to accommodate itself to all times and people
and still remain fundamentally unchanged.
For convenience the sodality work is divided up into four phases, comprised under the four
committees: "Eucharistic-Our Lady's," "Apostolic," "Literature," and "Social Action." Mt.
Carmel sends delegates to the weekly meetings of these committees at the central headquarters of
Cisca, who make known the progress that is being made in their own school and bring back
ideas and projects that have been found effective elsewhere. The constant interchange of ideas
makes for unity and helpfulness which are principal characteristics of Catholic Action.
Cisca has many subcommittees which are entrusted to the leadership of individual schools
under the four main committees. The subject of Communism has been detailed to Mt. Carmel:
weekly a study club meets and discusses the latest literature on Communism, plans the best
method to refute its false ideas and hears reports on the various developments in its tactics. The
materialistic Third International is counteracteil by the spiritual international, The Mystical
Body of Christ.
Everything is done to facilitate the spiritual development. Each of the four classes has its
own retreat under a competent spiritual guide. Confessions are heard all day Friday, to give all
an opportunity to draw weekly assistance from the sacramental fountain. Weekly, and, if pos-
sible, daily Communion is urged upon all. On the first Fridays the students attend Mass and
receive the Blessed Sacrament in a body in the gymnasium. "Holy Hours" and weekly Benedic-
tion tends to strengthen the bond of love between the student and his Sacramental Lord.
Very closely connected with this is the devotion to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, in whose
honor services are held during the noon hour on Wednesday. The Church is always well Hlled.
The religious bulletin, written by Fr. Arnold, was a potent factor in fostering the religious
Besides endeavoring to promote personal holiness, the Sodality of Mt. Carmel has entered
into many of the various activities sponsored by Cisca. It has constantly supported the diocesan
newspaper, the New World. It has collected thousands of stamps to aid the Carmelite foreign
missions. At a set time every day the students unite in prayer for the Propagation of the Faith
and the Catholic Youth Organization. A very successful bundle drive was held and a truckload
of old clothes was accumulated for the needy. The Sodality looks back fondly to the day in
May, 1935, upon which it was host to the largest general meeting Cisca convened.

Organized seven years ago to aid in arousing a strangely dormant school spirit, Carmel's
band has come a long way on the road to musical prominence. We owe a debt of thanks for this
success to the school and Mr. Beringer, and director for the past few years-to the school for its
hearty cooperation in our every undertaking-to Mr. Beringer for his untiring efforts to build
up a band of which we can all be proud.
Carmel's has always been considered the best uniformed high school band in the city, and
this year, with the marching greatly improved, thanks to Father Frederic, favorable comments
were heard throughout the stands as we marched between the halves at the football games. We
were kept busy throughout the year playing at football and basketball games, entertaining at
plays and parish dinners.
Our ventures into the social Held were crowned with success. The band banquet featured
not only an excellent dinner but also the debut of the "Hungry Five," an ensemble which later
won the school's amateur contest.
The Art Club and Band Dance offered the novel penny-a-pound idea which assured the
dance's financial success.
The band has been entered this year in the annual Diocesan Band Contest. We feel con-
fident that our performance will be a credit to the school and that our soloists will carry away a
few of the medals.
The usual concert was cancelled this year, and the band entertained at the car raffle instead,
at which time also letter winners received their awards. Hearty applause greeted our efforts and
put us in good humor for the annual picnic the next day.
Band officers during the past year were:
George Jacobmeyer ..... . . . . ,.... President
William Haas ..,.. . . ,Vice-President
Kenneth Orr . . ..., Secretary
Matthew Marz ....,.......... . . Treasurer
Father Regis is the band moderator.

The Monogram Club has been one of the most important and socially promi-
nent organizations in the school since it was organized ten years ago. This club was
organized for the purpose of gathering together all those who have Won Major
Letters in the field of athletics. The main purpose of this club is to guard against
any other letter beside a Carmel "C" being worn in or around Carmel's premises.
This club gives as its social contribution to the school the Homecoming Dance
which was held this year in the latter part of January. It was very colorful and was
without doubt the most successful dance ever given by any organization in Carmel,
At this dance Carmel Welcomes the return of the Alumni to the scene of their high-
school days. The old grads, of course, find this a special time of rejoicing and a time
to recall the memories of yester-year. It also sponsors the football and basketball
banquets which are given each year for those on the different squads as a token of
appreciation from the Athletic Board of Mt. Carmel.
But the influence of the Monogram Club extends a great deal further than the
athletic field or social activities of the school. The underlying spirit of the club,
friendships formed, the promotion of pride in curricular activities and in personal
achievements, all are of infinite value to the individual, and aid him in forming a
basis for citizenship and manhood of later life.
To the ofhcers of the Monogram Club and to the faculty adviser, the members
of the club owe their thanks for the way the meetings were conducted this year.

"The Irish are with us." Completely eliminating any competition this year are four Celtic
organizations. These fine representatives of Carmel spirit offer the student another opportunity
to form new friends among his classmates. For nine consecutive years these clubs have provided
a basis for interesting social and scholastic activities on the part of its members.
The O'Briens, celebrating their Hrst birthday, spring to a prominent front row position,
being tied with its rival, the Sullivans, for the largest membership. The character and size of the
individual rates it a first place.
In the second year of its budding existence, the Sullivan Club gained wide fame due to the
ability of its members, having representation in athletics, school organizations, and the band.
Returning after a year's lapse, the Murphy Club is once again in the limelight. Mr.
Murphy, our gym instructor, is the oldest member and deserving of a prominent place, He may
be regarded as the spirit of the club and an inspiration for all its members in every field.
The Ryan Club, although comparatively young, has been able to outnumber many other
prospective clubs by a wide margin. Coupled with its social and athletic activities, it represents
a cross-section of Carmel life.

In keeping with a fourteen-year tradition, the
Mt. Carmel Dramatic Club scored another hit in
the presentation of its 14th annual production.
As a vehicle the Club of 37 presented Dulcy a
sparkling comedy vx hich enjoyed prolonged popu-
larity on Broadway some years ago
Since 1924 when it was begun by Mr Rutter
the Dramatic Club has gradually added to its
laurels with the help of several able directors
They were Mr Brophy who succeeded Mr Rutter
Mr Sugrue Fr Angelus and the present director
Fr Kieran These men have proved their mettle
by the reputation they have given Mt Carmel s
sprouting dramatists The students of course
must claim some credit for the enviable heights the
Club has reached but credit must go in greater
measure to the painstaking efforts of the directors
in first of all choosing suitable plays secondly
careful matching as closely as possible the per
sonality of the student to the required role and
lastly the patient coaching which is so necessary
to perfect a play
Carmel s latest dramatic xenture Dulcy
played three successive nights to capacity audiences
in St Cyril s Hall The triumphant series was
climaxed by a benefit performance in Mercy High
School s splendidly appointed auditorium
This year s success was due to a remarkable
comlbination of an excellent play gifted players
and able direction Gordon Smith the leading
man ably done by John Kelley is the loving
husband who finds his every move blocked by the
innocent tastelessness of his wife Dulcinea most
conx incingly portrayed by James Duffin Another
victim of Ducy s unwitting mistakes is C Roger
Forbes a rheumatic magnate who is irritated to
the breaking point by her ponderous attempts at
being the perfect hostess Numerous laughs are
evoked with the aid of an able supporting cast
including John Murphy Norman Nagel George
Kennelly Thomas Gannon James McKillip
Joseph Figliulo and Joseph Walsh
The entire play is woven around an impend
ing merger between Smith and Forbes Dulcy s
blunders result in Forbes calling off the whole
deal Van Dyke a millionaire playboy offers to
back Smith in a different deal but Smith s hope is
turned to deepest despair when Van Dyke is re
vealed in his true person as a somewhat balmy
maker of bogus deals The climax is reached when
a necklace disappears and Forbes daughter elopes
with one of the more boring guests At length in
spite of Dulcy the difficulties are solved the deal
between Smith and Forbes is closed and all are
surprised to Hnd Angela Forbes daughter happily
married not to the odious scenario writer but to
Smith s extremely likeable brother William
It is the hope of this year s Dramatic Club
that in succeeding years the casts will not only live
up to but add substantially to Mt Carmels

The crowd breaks forth in a roar . . . he's loose . . .
he's away . . . he's down the field . . . it's a touchdown.
The band strikes up, and "Stand Up and Sing, Men of
Carmel," pours forth from the throats of her thousands
of loyal supporters. Carmel is victorious again.
Not alone in football . . .but in basketball, in base-
ball, in golf, in tennis, in track, in boxing, in wrestling,
in swimming . . . Carmel's fighting spirit predominates.
In all these fields has Carmel established a name to be
feared and respected. .
"A sound mind in a sound body," may indeed be
trite, but it is none the less true. Nowhere does it
receive greater application than at Carmel. No form of
school activity brings out more spontaneous enjoy-
ment than athletics. Carmel guides the exuberance of
youth into channels which will be the most productive
and by so doing she creates for herself the name that is
synonymous with all that is truly sporting in athletics
. . . fair play . . . loyalty . . . fighting spirit.
Not all of her students are fighting on the field . . .
many stand by . . . and with that whole hearted support
and co-operation so definitely Carmelite, they share in
her victories and bear with her in defeats. This loyalty
. . . this co-operation . . . this spirit of friendship
between athlete and student have won for her
the eminent position she now occupies.
And so this section portrays
that sportsmanship, that loy-
alty, that spirit of friendship to
both friends and foes, that is
ours. True Catholic gentlemen
. . . true sons of Carmel . . .

After the resignation of "Hod" Ofstie, the entire student body was left in a mild
furor of expectation as the faculty council debated the question of a new coach
Their final selection of Wally Fromhart was received enthusiastically by all as the
wisest choice possible although Mr Ofstie s departure was deeply regretted
Mr Fromhart graduated from Notre Dame in 1936 after starring for two years
at quarter back His fame had spread throughout the country and as a result he
was chosen to play on the All Star team an honor not granted to many It was
by his brilliant playing that the team was able to tie the Detroit Lions for he called
the play that scored a touchdown and later kicked for the extra point Besides be
ing a football star Mr Fromhart also played third base on the school baseball team
This year Carmel looks forward to another great team in football like those
we have had in the past With Wally Fromhart leading the Caravan should come
through to win for him a reputation in the coaching field and to gain further
glory for the Brown and White
Carmel opened the season with all the pros
pects of a championship team Its two prac
tice games it won easily taking Michigan City
6 0 and Pio Nono 24 O These games cost
bitterly as they were the cause of losing sev
eral of our most valuable players Carmel
managed to eke out a last minute victory over
Loyola 7 O Leo proved too strong a com
Fevs teams in Carmel s history have encoun
tered greater obstacles whether injuries d
feats bad breaks or disappointments and still
preserved that true Carmel spirit gallantly
sporting and valiantly persevering
Joe Joyce the captain and end although
injured for a major part of the season bol
stered up the courage of the team even when
not playing The plunging fullback Powell
the triple threat man Looney Jack
Kenny a dependable quarterback and safety
PIO NONO Full of confidence Carmel
opened the season against Pio Nono at
Milwaukee In spite of a heavy rainfall the
Brown and White showed their superiorlty
piling up a 24 0 lead in three quarters
MICHIGAN CITY The Carmelltes came
through for their second w1n1n as many prac
tice games by defeating Michigan City High
School on September 26th by a six to nothing
score The first quarter featured a punting
duel between the two teams but in the second
quarter Looney drove over for the only score
of the game
LOYOLA Mt Carmel played her first
league game against Loyola on October 4th
and succeeded in winning her third successive
victory over the north siders this time by a
seven to nothing score Both teams battled
without scoring in the first three quarters
b1nat1on for our weakened team and so the
Lions won 16 0 De La Salle also proved too
powerful winning 12 0 Carmel tied up a
fighting De Paul team 7 7 and then held Rita
to a scoreless tie the following Sunday The
Caravan trekked down to St Bede where they
had another 7 7 tie and finally wound up the
season losing to St George 6 O
man Orrle Crepeau a blocking right half
back Ray Sullivan one of the best defen
sive backs in the league all of these made
our backfield feared throughout the league
Fitzgerald and Ronspies repeatedly stopped
McKenna and Smith were outstanding tackles
on both offense and defense McHugh at
center made a reliable pivot man Along with
three sturdy guards Reid Merrion and
Cahill these men formed one of the best lines
that Carmel has had for years
LEO On October llth Leo High tradi
tional rivals of the Brown and White dealt
the Mt Carmel gridders their first set back of
the season The Leoites won the game by a
sixteen to nothing score through the spectac
ular playing of Mackey Gallagher and Gal
DE LA SALLE Following the strenuous
Leo contest of the week before Carmel suf
fered a let down on October 18th and was
defeated by De La Salle twelve to nothing

lost for the season due to a broken leg
DE PAUL Mt Carmel played her next
game agalnst the Red Devils of De Paul
Academy on October 25th Despite the seven

pletely outplayed their opponents gaining
many more yards from scrimmage than the
North Slders and coming within striking dis

ST. RITA. On November lst, Mt. Car-

this case St. Rita, but was forced to be content
with a scoreless tie. As the first half ended
Carmel had the ball on the three-yard line,
but then a downpour of rain commenced,
which rendered the field almost impossible for
play, but the game continued without a touch-
ST. BEDE. A fighting Mt. Carmel team
was held to another tie the next Sunday by
the visiting St. Bede team. In the second
quarter Joyce blocked a punt placing the ball
in a scoring position. Powell then plunged
over with Crepeau converting.
ST GEORGE In a hard fought battle at
Evanston on November l4th Carmel closed
her season by bowing to St George Dragons

The Lights won their second straight

contested until the final gun.

Although the Heavyweight team this year
was not of the caliber of our championship
Lights, nevertheless they were one of the best
teams Carmel has had in a great many years.
The individual stars all performed ably.
Tony Kelly, the captain and star forward,
led the team onward with his fighting spirit.
In the Rita game he came within four points
of tying Carmel's record for individual scor-
ing in one game. Bill Georgen, lanky center,
would have led the league in scoring had he
not missed two games because of illness. As
a pivot man, he was indispensable and ac-
counted for more than half the points in each
game. George Morse, although ineligible for
the first few games. snared the ball for Carmel
on every tip-off. Dick Creevy and Jack Mc-
Callum, sophomore stars, completed the team.
The Lightweights, Corbett and De Guide.
also played on the Heavies and turned in
With most of this year's Lights on next

son will not be amiss.

The largest turnout in years combined with
the coaching ability of Mr. "Mike" O'Con-
nor should give Carmel one of its best track
teams in recent years. A few pre-season prac-
tices have shown a wealth of ability among
the candidates, and Mr. O'Connor is looking
forward to a very successful season.
John Kenny, National Catholic Half-Mile
champ, will be back trying hard to repeat his
outstanding performance of 1936. Pressing
hard on Kenny's heels will be two other cap-
able half-milers. Barder and O'Donnell. Thad
"Flash" Ciorny and Johnny Allen, stellar
sprint men, are looking forward to their best
season. With such championship material.
Carmel will be a dangerous contender for the
1937 league crown.
Boxing, which for the past years has been
rising rapidly in popularity at Carmel, again
swings into what promises to be a most suc-
cessful season. A full squad of able battlers,
under the tutelage of Mr. Murphy, has
already begun the stiff training routine in
Murphy for the ine performance of the team
in past years. Mr. Murphy has brought box-
ing out of obscurity and turned it into one
of the most popular sports at Carmel. Many
future fistic glories are in store for Carmelite
pugilists, and we feel confident that as years

The informal hours at Carmelf Here, friends are made-here,
freed from the strains of studies, the student may join in impromptu
gatherings, engage in interclass sports, kneel in the quiet of the chapel.
These are the hours when the best in a boy is brought out as he drops
all formality and enjoys life.
An abundance of gymnastic equipment, indoor and outdoor
handball courts, a new athletic field, a modern swimming pool, bowl-
ing alleys, billiard and ping-pong tables-these are the opportunities
offered by Carmel to the boy to engage in healthy, interesting pastimes.
Camp Carmel, situated on the wooded shores of Hudson Lake,
Indiana, is typical of the friendly, informal side of Carmel. Here the
Carmel boy may renew his acquaintances of the school year and engage
in a well-rounded program of sports and other amusements. Here he
may continue under the spiritual guidance of the Carmelite Fathers
and still enjoy an ideal vacation.
Carmel encourages the informal gathering, promotes companion-
ship, and stimulates interest in those things which, although not in-
cluded in the school program, are truly Carmelite.
The purpose of these Carmelitana pages is to portray that period
when the student, free from the vigilant eye of his teacher and left to
his own resources, relaxes, laughs, and finds something worth more
than all the knowledge available-a friend.
And now, dear reader, you're in for it. On these pages we are about to re-enact all the events
of the year, so settle yourselves comfortably and hope for the best.
The school year started off with a bang as a "Benny" ran into a blank wall looking for
the elevator that would take him to his third floor class. On the second day out, the same Fresh-
man discovered that the school has no elevators. He made up for it, however, by buying a fur-
lined locker from a Senior. Hot stuff! Tuesday of the next week found the Freshmen and their
elder brothers, the Sophomores, in church. They were paralyzed at the sight of a collection box
but managed to get their hands to their pockets. In the meantime the discipline office had its
hands full with students who "forgot" that school had begun. They were soon reminded of it.
The year-old loudspeaker system in school had the Seniors somewhat upset. They claimed
it disturbed their sleep. Freshmen, on the other hand, barely live from one announcement to
the next. Parent-Teacher meetings, too, muddled the school's affairs. There's many a student
who would like to see this ancient Carmel custom abolished.
Around the end of the month, various wild-eyed Seniors were seen parading up and down
the halls, carrying election banners. Final results were: President, Bill Bryar: Vice-President,
Joe Joyce: Secretary, Ray Smith, and Treasurer, Reg. McHugh.
The long-heralded newspaper, edited by Bill Bryar, finally came out amidst a burst of jokes
and news. Judging by the acclaim given it, it will be a permanent institution. The following
Sunday, Carmel started her football season by defeating Loyola, 7-0, in a real thriller which
included a last-minute touchdown by Don Powell. All the excitement over, Monday found the
Freshmen in green caps as their initiation began. Several "Frosh" undertook lunder the guid-
ance of the Seniorsl to give the sidewalk a thorough cleaning. The next Sunday, however, was
a sad day. Carmel lost to St. Leo, but they fought every inch of the way. Tiny Shrewbridge
Field was jammed so 'tight there wasn't much room for the players. In spite of the defeat, how-
ever, there was some rejoicing amidst the gloom. The ORIFLAMME was awarded All-American
honors for 1936. A few days later the school was upset by another election-this time for the
Junior class officers. Results were: Crepeau, President: Kelly, Vice-President: Morse, Secretary,
and Morin, Treasurer. The election, however, failed to explain the conspicuous absence of
Juniors from the honor roll for September. We think Mr. O'Connor could help on that point.
As a move for a greater school spirit, Father Theodore announced the new school song, tc
the accompaniment of the student body. It will be in official use at all future football games.
Later in the week, a straw vote was taken by the CARMEL-LITE to decide the outcome of the
presidential election. President Roosevelt, as expected, won by a large margin.

Carmel's Brown and White began the month by battling St. Rita to a scoreless tie. Statis-
tics show, however, that the Caravan outplayed their foes. Then. almost as if planned, Roose-
velt won the elections in an identical manner to that predicted by the CARMEL-LITE. A real
scoop for the fast-growing publication!
Friday 13 of this month held no terrors for the Monogram Club. They made a great suc-
cess of the annual Homecoming Dance. Art Goldsmith did the musical honors. Later on our
cafeteria held its grand opening with a special feast of pop and hot dogs. It was built under St.
Cyril's church, in the ample basement.
Sounds of weighty argument issued from the office as the brainy ones QSeniorsf7 debated on
the price of their rings. Final decision: 5Bl0.00. Several days after, Father Theodore led the
school in pledging allegiance to the flag in a mass outdoor meeting that boded no good for
Before dismissing the school for the Thanksgiving Holidays there was a general meeting in
the gym. Two days later the drug stores reported a shortage of castor oil. We suspect that the
Freshmen were a little too attentive to the turkey, and forgot to be thankful.
On the 28th. the Avalon Theatre was the scene of Carmel's super-colossal midnight show
which packed the house to the rafters. This party took the place of the regular carnival.
Upon returning to school, Johnny Jordan called for volunteers to the basketball team.
Freshmen cage aspirants soon learned that dribbling has nothing to do with water.
The results of last month's coaching soon showed their effects in two victories over St.
George. Keep your eye on the Dragons, you'll see more of them later. The basketball was for-
gotten momentarily, as letters were awarded at the annual football banquet. Later in the
evening, Oreal Crepeau was announced captain of the team for 193 7.
Intramural sports got under way as Jack Lucas and Dick Monaghan won handball cham-
pionships in Senior and Junior divisions, respectively. Both were awarded gold medals.
The CARMEL-LITE carried on in true Carmel fashion, appearing in the Chicago Evening
American's student section. Everyone acclaimed it an excellent piece of work.
Later in the week, the faculty announced the resignation of "Hod" Ofstie, Carmel's famous
grid coach. Every Carmel student owes "Hod" a debt of gratitude for the Hne teams he has
turned out in the past. Good luck to you, "HodI"
Freshmen and Sophomores at Mass were lectured by Fr. Theodore on "Proper Respect for
the Seniors." One joker la Seniorj has already sent Johnny Jordan a book on reducing.
Before dismissal, Carmel's yearly amateur show was held, furnishing mirth and amusement
to the students lg those who didn't participatej and ending the year with a "bang!"
The night after Christmas various colored ties graced the Medinah, as the Holiday Dance
proceeded. The music was furnished by Carleton Kelsey's band.

The Seniors started the year by Hgetting religion." Father Peter Crumley, O.S.F., led the
"High and Mightiesu in their retreat. Judging by the results, it was a success. One Senior was
actually seen talking to a Freshman. But don't be alarmed: he.,-was only trying to borrow
money. ' '
A few days later, "Wally" Fromhart, the Notre Dame football star, was named as the new
football coach. He's got a hard job ahead of him, but all our trust is in him. Good luck,
The Mid-Year Dance rolled around, and with it a novelty, innovated by the Art Club
and the Band. Escorts paid a penny a pound for the girls instead of a fixed price. Heavyweights
went out of style in a hurry!
Shortly after, "Dulcy," the former Broadway hit, was presented by the Dramatic Club
and scored a definite hit. We direct a bushel of praise at Fr. Kieran and his able cast.
But comedy didn't reign for long. The mid-year exams clipped the enrollment list and
threw a scare into a lot of other fellows. General gloom prevailed, but the Monogram Club did
its best to dispel it. The annual initiation took the form on an impromptu Ziegfeld Follies
Chorus in front of the school. It was their legs that were red, not their faces. fFlannel
Business boomed in the cafeteria, and knocked out the walls. Or was it the carpenters?
Anyway, plenty more eating space was uncovered.
Gur lightweight basketball team, running strong, found itself in first place after Leo
defeated St. Rita. There's a pal for you!
Nominations for the most popular boy in school were put in order, under the sponsorship
of the CARMEL-LITE. Results were not long in coming in. Abraham, Lincoln topped the list
February l2, as the school was let out in honor of his birthday. It seems he freed more than
Two weeks later, Washington replaced "Abe" at the head of the list as we got another
free day. We find he was something of an emancipator, also.
Fr. Theodore started a drive for new football uniforms for next year's team. The drive
includes several basketball games and a boxing show.
The Lights remained in first place by virtue of their win over De La Salle, but the Heavies
lost. Better luck next time, boys! Both teams faded from the picture, however, as two
impromptu teams composed of the lay profs and the fratres battled it out for the school title.
The lay profs won the classic in an over-time, 32-28.
Hurrah! The Lights popped back into the limelight with a victory over St. Rita, thus
leaving them only one game from the city championship. Hail the South Side Champs!
The argument over the when, where, and how of the Senior Prom waxed hot and furious.
Meanwhile, the Juniors quietly and decisively settled all plans for theirs.
Our Lights rose in the fourth quarter to defeat St. George lremember theml and win the
city championship. Not one orchid but a whole bouquet to Johnny Jordan and his ultra-sen-
The "Notre Dame" night, with boxing, movies and celebrities, was an overwhelming suc-
cess. The football team is now assured of new uniforms.
As a finishing touch to this program, a free dance was held in the gym on St. Patrick's Eve.
All who attended the Notre Dame night were entitled to the dance.
The Senior staff of the CARMEL-LITE turned the paper over to the Juniors. whose first
edition proved its worth. Good luck, boys, and may your reign have the success of the Seniors.
That man with the camera disrupted the school again, taking pictures of clubs, teams, and
ln another Prof-Fratres game, the priests came out on top to the tune of 28-18. Fr. Owen
Fenwick of Chicago won the national tournament at Loyola, beating Joliet in the finals.
Father Regis started a free-throw contest that should prove interesting. Wonder if a fellow
has to be fouled before he can enter?
The winner of the popularity contest was announced as George Morse, star center of the
basketball team. We bet George polled most of his votes over at Loretto!

Erom the mists of our dreams the ORIFLAMME of 1937 has emerged. And now,
we the staff, must pause to take advantage of this, our last opportunity to make
known those sentiments which we feel to all who have given freely of their time
and whole-hearted support to make this volume an outstanding success and a worthy
sequel to its renowned predecessors.
We gratefully acknowledge the support proferred the ORIFLAMME by the Car-
melite Fathers. The record attained by previous ORIFLAMMES has been a direct
result of this cooperation.
In particular, we wish to express our sincere gratitude to Father Andrew L.
Weldon, O. Carm, for the infinite pains he has taken in planning, organizing and
directing the Wqgk on the yearbook.
To those foiur great commercial organizations outside the school, Fred J. Ringley
Co., Pontiac Engraving 8 Electrotype Company, De Haven Studios and Globe
Binding 8 Embossing Company, who have contributed so much to our publica-
tion, we can have only feelings of the utmost thankfulness.
Of the first, Mr. Roy Sanger, Mr. Maurice Sanger, and Mr. W. L. Q'Brien have
all labored indtistriously to give this book its typographical perfection. From the
staff of Pontiac, Mr. O. S. Barrett has given freely of his time and careful thought
in planning the book and in the execution of the beautiful engravings. Miss Parks
of De Haven has aided invaluably in the preparation and identincation of the line
portrait photographs for which the studio was responsible. The beautiful cover
design is the work of Mr. O. S. Barrett of Pontiac and of Justin Miller of Globe,
the former the creator, and the latter the fabricator.
We also wish to express our gratitude to those members of the Junior Class,
Matthew Rigler, James Juby, Sigmund Rybarczyk, Dave Maguire, Frank Balaam,
and William Neale who gave unstintingly of their time to aid in the preparation
and identification of the lower class pictures.
In particular we thank the Dads' Club and the Mothers' Club for their untir-
ing support of all school activities and especially of this, the QRIFLAMME.
This ORIFLAMME was made Hnancially possible by the whole-hearted sup-
port and cooperation of our patrons. The student body at large has by its faithful
support, both moral and financial, proved once again the efficacy of the indomi-
table Carmel spirit.
And so, with a warm handclasp and a last farewell to all of you, our
friends. we present our Hnal achievement here at Carmel, the ORIELAMME
