Eclitor-in-Chief Ol The Excelsior
l57 Highland Avenue Providence, R. l.
Here we have one of the outstanding athletes ever to don
a Mount uniform. "Dick" was with us for three years but no
other student, in the history of the school, secured so many
friends. His nice manners, magnetic personality, excellent
behavior won the affection of all. On the football field, on
the ice, on the diamond, he was "everywhere" and caused
the opposing coaches many headaches. His scholastic rec-
ord was worthy of his athletic ability, He wants to study
journalism, and some day, we have hopes, he will replace
Jack Martin, as sports editor of the "Providence Journal".
320 Third Avenue Woonsocket, R. l.
The Mount's king of swing! This title certainly fits
"Truc", his friends testifying he can swing itl l-le heads
an orchestra and plays the drums. "Truc" is a chubby fel-
low, the proud possessor of large dimples in each cheekg he
thanks God to have endowed him with a sweet temper. A
very popular boy, he enjoys playing Bro. Elisee's music
records every noon. l-le doesn't go in for sports very much,
and in his studies he tries to get fairly good marks counting
on the inspiration of the l-loly Ghost.
379 Third Avenue Woonsocket, R. l.
Gerard has been with us for a number of years. This
quiet, good-natured chap has won a place in the hearts of
faculty members and students. l-lis untiring efforts have
enabled him to have his name grace the honor roll sev-
eral times. "Butch", as he wishes the boys to call him, was
a valuable asset to the football teamg his smashing tackles
were certainly a menace to our opponents on the gridiron,
Gerard hasn't revealed his future plans but we feel sure that
his genial manner and assiduous work will carry him far in
whatever field he attempts to enter in life. l-lere's loads of
luck and success to a great friendl
RAYMOND BEAUCHEM l N
89 Merrill Court Woonsocket, R. l.
Eight years ago this amiable lad first ascended the hills
to Mount Saint Charles Academy, His name has often
adorned the Honor Roll and he is destined to make a place
for himself in the lumber industry. Whenever there is a
discussion, "Ray" is seen in the thick of it. He's an authority
on all sports, rules, and records. Geniality and perseverance
are his chief characteristics. Typevvriting and bookkeeping
are his pet subjects. Here's to a great pal and likeable
chap, may all his undertakings be successful!
368 Church Avenue Verdun, P. Q.
Presenting "Georgie", Verdun's most creditable gift to
the Mount! He graced the halls of our Academy for the
past three years. His good looks and charming personality
have won him many friends. The Mount's Flying French-
men are losing a valuable center in George, his fine stick-
handling and all-round team play gave the Mount its third
consecutive hockey championship. George has also been
outstanding in his studies during his stay here, he has se-
cured three Honor Roll letters, which proves his merit as a
student. George intends to work for his Dad, and during
his spare moments to play senior hockey for Verdun. His
many friends will be glad to welcome back their lost hero!
325 Grove Street Woonsocket, R. I.
Meet "Cam", one of the handsomest of the Senior Classl
He graduates with enough credits to pass them down to
other students who are not passing. He is one of the wit-
tiest of his class. He has been on the Honor Roll for three
years. As many students in the school, as many friends he
has. He has been on our great hockey team for the past
two years. Whatever he intends to do after he graduates
from school, we believe that with his unerring personality,
nothing but success awaits him,
426 East 26th Street New York, N, Y.
Tall, dark, and handsome are only a few of the masculine
qualities this boy possesses. A product from the sidewalks
of New York, Carl came to the Mount three years ago. Un-
able to attend the Mount in l939, Carl returned to us this
year with all of his sparkling personality and brilliant mind,
"Tex", as he is called by his fellow students, has proven
himself a capable student. "Tex" is one of those boys who
has toured a great deal, he has souvenirs from Pennsylvania,
New Mexico and Texas. His one great ambition is to own
a hunting lodge up in the mountains of Colorado. For what-
ever field Carl pursues, we are sure that his efforts will
be crowned with success.

Presenting jovial and friendly Gerard Biron of the Social
section of Woonsocketl Although his scholastic rating did
not place him on the Honor Roll, he managed to secure
graduation requirements, He was a member of the band
for five years and the best cornetist in the group. If you see
a white plane circling over Woonsocket, you may assure
yourself that it is Gerard piloting it His loyalty to the
Mount has been unflinching, His ambition is to become a
professional aviator. We wish him the best of success and
hope that his parachute is always in good condition.
l58 Central Street lvlanville, R. 1.
.A quiet boy from Manvillel This is the description that
anybody will give you ot Bernard. Always striving to do
his best in studies, he was well repaid tor his name was never
missing from the Honor Roll during his tour years' stay at
the lvlount. As a relaxation from studies, "Bernie" has been
interested in sports, especially baseball. Everybody knovvs
how well he can uphold his point in baseball discussions, No
one has ever heard this boy muttering about his bad luck,
he takes everything in an optimistic vvay, the reason why
we all believe Bernard will succeed in liter h
JEAN LOUIS BOLDUC
57 Water Street Waterville, Me.
"Johnny" hails from "away up there" in Maine. A prize-
vvinning and pleasing disposition have made him an indispens-
able member ot our graduating class, Without this beam-
ing ray ot sunshine, the campus would have often been a
dreary spot, Although "Johnny" has not been a participant
in sports, his quarterly papers otten l:ore a 90 plus mark,
a probable explanation why he never displayed his wares on
the athletic field, As yet he is undecided as to the college
he plans to enter, l-le has so tar three, vvith "l-loly Cross"
leading. Whatever college he enters, he will certainly bring
honor to his Alma Mater. Good luck, "Johnny"l
28 Plymouth Street New Bedford, Mass,
Known affectionately as "Jim", he is New Bedford's gift
to Mount Saint Charles. A stellar student and a good basket-
ball player, he possesses all those traits that endear him
to those that know him, l-le personifies the words of the
poet who said, "Who smiles receives an answering smile."
l-lis good naturedness, and witty remarks, are an integral
part of the Senior Class, l-le will enter l-loly Cross in the
fall and we expect laudable reports from the Dean. l-lappy
landings to a zealous worker and a great friend!
l Morton Avenue Woonsocket, R. l,
ln Elmer we have the perfect specimen of the quiet fel-
low, who thinks over the situation from all angles before
voicing his opinion. Never has "EI" been heard to even
give the slightest sign of dissatisfaction. l-le has a good
word for everyone and is willing to help all. Ohl if only
more persons could imitate his calm efficiency! l'm sure
that this world would be a better place to live in. Elmer is
made of exactly the stuff that is needed to succeed in all
222 l.ake Street Brighton, Mass.
"Smiley" is a cheerful happy-go-lucky representative of
Boston. For a number of years now his favorite exercise
has been to purchase the newspapers at Fontaine's every
morning for Bros Elisee. Being an ardent sport fan, his
boisterous voice is often raised in defense of his favorite
team against the arguments of his opponents. l-le plans
to realize his ambitions by enlisting with the United States
Marine Corps in September, We are sure he will be a credit
to his school and to his country.
570 Canton Street Stoughton, Mass.
Everybody knows Robert, the smiling lad from Stoughton,
who graced the portals of the Mount for the first time last
September. l-le came here to prepare for College. His ever-
smiling face and attractive personality have won him nu-
merous friends vvherever he has gone. ln intramural sports,
he set a fine example of how to take both victory and de-
feat. l-lis persistency in endeavor is matched only by his
desire to get ahead, l-lis sharp vvit and keen humor have
enlivened numerous groups of friends. l-le intends to fur-
ther his studies at l-loly Cross, the outstanding Catholic
College in the East.
804 Park Avenue Woonsocket, R, l,
"Pete", as he is known to his classmates, is a good-natured,
pleasant, and most helpful tellow. I-Ie has never tailed to
inscribe his name on the l-lonor Roll during his nine years
at the Mount. "Pete" graduates with enough credits to
allow two "tlunkers" to get the sheepskin, A master of
the typewriter, he seldom tails to average a sensational
seventy-five words a minute, Not only does he excel in
his class-work, but although he is only sixteen years old,
"Pete" rates very high among the city's ten leading chess
players. Congratulations, l-lill College!
lClO Bayvue Avenue Salem, Mass.
"Tom" is one of the most prominent Seniors to graduate
this year. During the tour years he was here, he made it a
policy to be a friend to everyone and an enemy to no one,
"Tom" was late in entering this year much to the detriment
ot the football team where, in. past years, he was outstand-
ing at right tackle. Also known as "Muscles", he'll be re-
membered tor his feats ot strength, which included boxing
and wrestling, "Tom's" plans tor the tuture are shipbuild-
ing and roaming the seven seas. ln the years to come we
expect to see some transatlantic steamer named after him.

During his five-year tenure at the Mount "Fran" has
gained praise and honor from all of his teachers. His name
has never failed to grace the Honor Roll, His pleasing per-
sonality has won him many friends amongst the students.
ln both French and English Public-Speaking, he has shown
himself an outstanding member. He fared well as a mem-
ber of the track team and starred in intramural sports. As
associate editor of "The Excelsior", he has contributed
greatly to its success. For a man with such ambition we have
high hopes for his future studies in Chemistry at Holy Cross.
372 Grove Street Woonsocket, R. l.
"Jerry" is one of the Mount's big-three, ithe cheerful
onel. ln his seven years as a lvlounty, all but one year saw
him off the Honor Roll. No events did he pass by. For
athletics he cheered, for the band he blew the French horn,
in elocution he excelled, in architectural drawing he was a
master, Gerard is decidedly a serious young man and we
thoughtfully say that he was never reprimanded by the
Brothers. As an interior decorator, we are sure that his
winning smile and personality will gain him a well-earned

l'Paulie" may not be the biggest member ot our football
squad, but he is in there giving his best all the time He
has for his motto: "The bigger they are the harder they
tall." Although not an outstanding student, he has made
a scholastic record worthy ot a good athlete. His agreeable
and delightful disposition has won the hearts ot all those
who came in contact with him. We have not heard what
Paul intends to do after he graduates, but we are sure that
he will make good. Au revoir, Paul, and the best ot luckl
l26 Hope Street Woonsocket, R, I.
"Champ" is one of the brightest and wittiest students
of the Senior Class He has always been a hard worker
which he proved by attaining the Honor Roll throughout
his High School course. One cannot miss his witty and
polished utterances in or out of class. His wonderful ability
in bookkeeping and arithmetic will surely help him secure an
accountant's job. We are sure that he will succeed in lite
because of his amiable and strong character. Best of luck.
Rhode Island State College

I'm certain that everyone knows "Marty", the smiling,
cheerful, broad-chested youth from Boston. "Marty", in his
junior year, attracted the attention of the sport fans by his
brilliant ability as a track man and this year he won fame
on the football field. "Marty" is extremely fond of using
elongated words. Quite often he will be heard to say, "ln
English that means , . . I" In class and study, however,
"Marty" is very serious, and continually in search of knowl-
edge for which he is much admired by his teachers. We
hear that you intend to become a priest. Congratulations!

This lad, in his nine years of attendance at the Mount has
continually chased old man gloom away from our portals

his spontaneous remarks. No doubt we acclaim him as the
most popular boy in school whenever a game is played a
story is told, a meeting is held or even a iam session is staged

will long remember his speed on the track team Quite a

To make a short subject tall, "Gus" has been a member
of the student body for seven years. Not a year has passed
without seeing this quiet, unassuming youth, inscribing his
name on the Honor Roll, l-le has gained the affection of
everyone by his friendly smile and pleasing personality: "Gus"
is one of the shortest members of the senior class but by
no means to be judged by his misleading "altitude". Whether
and where he plans to further his studies he has not divulged.
We are sure that whatever he undertakes he will reap suc-

Serious, studious, dignified, and friendly-these are a few
of the qualities which may be unmistakably attributed to
this Connecticut lad for his continual perseverance through-
out his three-year stay with us, Although "Ray" did not
compete in varsity sports, he has always been a prominent
figure in all intramural activities. "Ray" has often led his
class in studies, his popularity made him president of his
Junior Class last year. Upon graduation "Ray" contemplates
entering a Medical School to prepare for the profession of
dentistry. We are confident he will succeed in any profes-
50 Cross Street Woonsocket, R. l.
Some seven or eight years ago this ever-smiling, good-
natured fellow entered the portals of Mount Saint Charles.
A more cheerful and happy-go-lucky student has never been
seen at school. '!Bill" is no wizard when it comes to "Trig",
but he holds 'his own when it comes to argue. "Bill" was
also a worthy member of the Public-Speaking class, and
his many speeches delivered with dramatic duality, held audi-
ences spellbound. l-lis personality earned him many friends
with both students and teachers, and we feel sure that his
winning smile and genial personality will win him a place
in the world.
402 Weston Road Wellesley, Mass.

Mount this year. A graduate of Wellesley High School, he
came here to pursue his studies, and prepare for college.

distinguished group who made the Honor Roll. "Bob" is a
quiet and likeable boy, who has made many friends during
his one-year stay at the Mount. l-lis quiet personality and
tireless energy for his work will always be remembered. l-lis
main ambition would be to enter l-loly Cross College, to
study under the careful and expert guidance of the Jesuit

Although weighing a hundred and twenty-five, young
Robert has earned the school's monogram in sports for three
successive years, Playing for the hockey team, who were
National Champions, this capable young athlete displayed
remarkable courage by performing against opponents nearly
twice his size. ln the classroom, "Bob" used his brains to
good advantage. l-laying attained the l-lonor Roll through-
out his entire high school course, verifies this scholastic
statement. Bob intends to further his school days by spe-
cializing in accounting at l-lill College. Best of luck, Bobl

Faithfully walking through the portals of M, S, C., every
school day, for the past nine years, has been a happy, in-
telligent-looking boys None other than our own l-lenri Des-
rochers who usually brought something funny into the Chem-
istry Class. l-lenri has acquired four l-lonor Roll letters
through diligent, hard work in the classroom, and was a
loyal rooter for the Mount in all athletic contests. Photo-
graphing is his hobby but another interesting pastime is that
of creating original drawings which always produce a laugh,
Dairying will be his aim in future business and we are quite
sure that he will succeed,

Introducing "Jack", one of the several boys who took a
post-graduate course at the Mount this year. He is a grad-
uate of Everett High School, where he held a prominent
position on two major athletic teams, "Jack's" only show-
ing of his ability in sports was in the intramural league where
he was a favorite stand-out. His wit and keen sense of
humor have won him a constant place in the heart of every
student here at the Mount., "Jack's" present ambition is
to enter Boston College this fall, where he will study law.
We know, "Jack", that your personality and determination
will win for you as many cases as it did friends here at the
29-54 l43rd Street Flushing, N. Y.
One of the most popular boys at the Mount is "Joe", For
three years he has been here and each year has left his name
higher in both athletics and scholastic achievements. On
our football team he was several times mentioned for All-
State. This year he was Captain of the squad. Although
"Joe" plays basketball and baseball very well he has not
had the urge to compete on the varsity, ln the intramural
basketball league his team found first place. As a scholar
"Joe" is a fine example. For the past three years, he has
been on the Honor Roll. These two achievements coupled
with his wonderful personality made him worth while know-
ing and worth while remembering. "Joe" is from New York,
the city where a lot of great fellows live.
l38 Church Street Woonsocket, R. I,
"Bill" is one of the many fine Saint Charles youths at-
tending the Mount. Time and time again, his name graced
the I-lonor Roll at the institution and all concerned know
that he has deserved it. l-lis refined manners have won him
the esteem and respect of everyone. I-le was on Ray Vaud-
reuiI's basketball team this winter and, altlcough a second-
stringer, he participated in a few games, long enough to
prove his worth, I-le is very faithful in everything that he
attempts and doesn't stop until he achieves his goal. We
are positive that he will be a success once out of school.
208 Elmore Street Woonsocket, R. I.
Roland, the man with a million friends, a gay smile and a
heart of gold, concluded his fourth year of commercial
studies at the Mount. Arithmetic and Bookkeeping are
the two subjects in which Roland has found best results.
As many students in the school, as many friends he has.
For the last four years he has always managed to keep his
name on the I-lonor Roll. After graduation, Roland plans
ow following his father's footsteps in the Insurance and Real
Estate business. We all wish him great success and we
know he will bring credit to the Mount.
44 Edmund Street Woonsocket, R. l.
"Dick" to you, that freckled-faced lad, from the North
End, may be one of the smallest members of the Senior Class,
but on the gridiron he is a giant. l-le's a typical example
of the spirit of the "fighting Irish". Besides being promi-
nent in athletics, having played first-string half-back in
football, he's known for his dignified behavior and polished
manners. Like his first cousin, James Everett, he vvill leave
at the Mount the best souvenir, Those ever-smiling Irish
eyes won him many friends in his three years' stay at the
Mount. Success knocks at your door, you've only to let it
l9O Althea Street Providence, R. l.
We present the smiling "Duke", Paul is distinguished
for his sunny disposition, his ready smile, and his willingness
to co-operate with everyone, Though his small stature dicl
not permit him to be a varsity man, Paul has participated
in many intramural sports where he has found much pleas-
ure and renown. If good-naturedness could be coined, Paul
would be rich indeed. With these innumerable qualities
and sincere ambitions, we feel certain to say that Paul will
be a success in whatever he undertakes. l-lere's to your
success in everything you do, Pauli
592 Blackstone Street Woonsocket, R. l.
"Garchie" came to us three years ago, and since then
has won a host of friends with his light-hearted wit and
humor. Although some of his jokes are pretty dry, he gets
a good one across now and then, Sometimes his wit and
joking get him into a little difficulty in class, as the Brother
has a knack of handing out 2 or 3 pages to copy, and sure
enough our good friend Francis is among those to get them
"Garchie" didn't make the varsity in either football or bas-
ketball but he tried hard, and in practice sessions he caused
the varsity boys plenty of trouble. Francis plans to enter
his father's fruit business. With a fresh start before him,
we feel sure that "Garchie" will succeed.
28 Central Street Manville, R. l,
Bernard is a quiet, unassuming fellow, but this does not
prevent him from being very popular with his classmates. l-le
resides in Manville and the best part of it is that he upholds
that town's rights. As for studies, you often see him at
the top of his classy this he has achieved by his constant
daily works l-le is a sort of a fellow who minds his own
business but on the other hand is always willing' to help
anyones l-lis polite and courteous manners are his fortune.
Industrial Chemistry is one of his favorite subjects. Greet-
ings to the President of the Band Council!
33 Morton Street Woonsocket, R. l,
This young gentleman is the smallest fellow in this year's
graduating class, but he is nevertheless one of its leading
students, having earned two gold letters in two years. He
transferred from Woonsocket High last year to join the
Mount, He is also athletically inclined, and baseball is his
favorite. He makes trigonometry look easy and this is one
of his best subiects. He also is in the lndustrial Chem-
istry Course. The Boy Scouts of Precious Blood Parish also
take part of his time. l.ots of luck, "Nicky"l
49 Burt Street Dorchester, Mass.
"Bob" comes from Dorchester, Mass. At the end of this

thinking of joining the army and has spent three or four
summers at an army camp of the C. M, T. C "Bob" has

seen him go through high school with flying colors, we can-
not help being optimistic when it comes to predicting his
future. We're all pulling for you, "Greg"l

his ready smile, and numerous manifestations of school
spirit, during his two years at the Mount. After his gradu-
ation he hopes to become the clarinetist of some well-known
orchestra. In his spare time he hopes to help his father
in his printing business. We look to him for great accom-
plishments in the great game of life, and may he some day

Andrew is a newcomer at the Mount, but he is already
known by everyone, His nimble tingers are masters of the
piano keyboard as well as the typewriter keyboard. "Andy's"
witty puns provide laughter tor all. His distinguished man-
ners and aristocratic airs gain him respect. Alasl He has
been at the Mount only one year. Andrew's hopes are to
enter civil service, and we all know that he cannot tail. Best
of luck, maestro!

Frank, the Brooklyn Dodgers fan, has been in our midst
for the last three years. The old proverb, "when a fellow
needs a friend," surely fits to Hibner, because he is a most
popular student. Frank was on the track team in l939, and
was one of the outstanding performers, but what Frank
really excels in is his studies. He has received his three
Honor Roll letters, which prove him an outstanding scholar.
Hibner's best friend is his pipe. Frank intends to enter
Fordham, where he will study medicine. He certainly will
be a great asset to this university.
60 Superior Street Lynn, Mass.
Frank comes from Lynn, a city noted for the good humor
of its inhabitants, He brought that good humor along with
him and distributed it among us freely whenever and wher-
ever it was needed, Although this is his first year at the
Mount, he was not long in making himself popular with
the student body because of his quiet, refined nature, Frank
was everybody's friend and always ready to lend a helping
hand to anyone who needed it. Frank hopes to be a me-
chanical engineer in the future and plans on getting the
necessary training at Holy Cross next year. i

Although Walter will never die from over-work, his natural
abilities should carry him on top of Mount Olympus, for
they have made him outstanding here on the l-lilltop. l-le
never was known to rush himselt anywhere. l-le has the
dignity and bearing of a true Senior and believes that sports
should be encouraged although he never participated, but
his support is there, he is seen at almost every sport event.
So tar he is undecided as to the path he is to tollow in lite,

Asbie, better known as "Streaky", this short, but yet
broad-shouldered lad, is a product ot Fairmount. ln his
three years' stay at the Mount he has received three let-
ters in baseball and one in track. ln studies, he does as
equally well as in athletics. lt you happen to see "Streaky"
in the yard, you will usually see "Gene Krupa" Artruc, Jo-
lin's right-hand man, trailing him, Artruc and Jolin are
the Mount's inseparable pair. Ambition and perseverance
will some day rush "Streaky" to a high position as a drafts-
man in any engineering plantl

The Mount will sutter a great loss when "Wimpy" grad-
uates. "Wimpy" has been a student at the Academy tor
the past tive years during which time he has acquired all
that the institution could otter in the way ot sports and
learning. l-le has played three years ot Varsity Basketball
and two years of football, a leg injury hindered his attempt
to play baseball. Rarely early tor classes, he trods noncha-
lantly along without the slightest thought ot time, but
slowly and surely arrives. l-lis clever wit and personality
have won him a host ot triends and admirers among both
"sexes". "Wimpy" is not a man to look towards the tuture,
so his plans have not been determined as yet.

Leo is a rather quiet type ot boy in class, once outside
his disposition changes completely, he is ready to tease
others and to share in all activities. l-le was an illustrious
member ot the track team, and Coach Domina Jalbert had
hopes of sending him to a Boston marathon, ln school sub-
jects he fared remarkably well in spite ot repeated absences.
Leo will always be pointed out as a model ot refined man-
ners, excellent behavior, and loyalty to the Mount. l-le
will be a credit to the Catholic training he has received
since his birth.

A strong and hard-working youth, Rene is certainly the
pride of Manville. During all his high school course he has
proven himself to be one of the better students at the
Mount by always being a member of the Honor Roll. Last
fall intervening circumstances did not permit Rene to play
football, but he showed his ability in that sport by his bril-
liant work on the gridiron during his junior year. Rather
independent this young man has taken the good habit of
deciding for himself what is the best thing to do in tight
situations. This will certainly prove a great help to him
in the world, Every boy in the school wishes the best of
luck to you, Rene.

Here is the mathematician of the senior class, very
thoughtful, very amiable, and very intellectual. Cool, logi-
cal thinking, with mathematical precision, exemplifies this
Bostonian. "Ray" has the quality of quietness but never
fails to make himself heard when his interests are being
discussed. In his three-year stay, we have noticed that
"Ray" has one of the most congenial personalities in the
Hilltop institute. His sunny disposition and willingness to
co-operate have won him many friends. "Ray" has set an
enviable record, generally receiving ninety percent or bet-
ter. He plans to matriculate at lvl, I. T. and become an
engineer. If present signs mean anything, "Ray" should
go far on the road of life

jokes and witty remarks often cause a great deal of laughter.
His future plans are worthy of an ambitious young man and

Saint Charles to spend four years here as a student. l-le
has done well both on the athletic field and in the class-
room. For the football team he played right guard and was
several times mentioned for "All State" in that position.
ln his scholastic achievement he has been on the l-lonor

he is worth having. l-le is thinking of taking over his father's

come up with the most fantastic tales. l-lis liberal smile and
sparkling teeth have gained him the esteem of all his class-
mates, Assiduity, ability to work, loyalty are but few of

l-lis genial manners and sparkling smile have won him a warm
spot in the hearts ot most ot the students. ln the class-
room he tackles studies with the same determination that
gives him All-State rating as goalie. Whatever school claims

student who never allows a dull moment to pass in which
he could be furnishing the rest of the crowd with a hearty
laugh. The Mount will miss you, "Danny"l

by his classmates. l-le has not felt the urge to go to col-
lege. l-lis ambition is to own a store. l-le is a genial chap,

keeping and French, "Nei" is nothing short of a wizard.
When it comes to French dictation, very few indeed do a

Trophy. l-lis pleasing personality and manner ot accomplish-
ment have won him many friends l-lis popularity is ac-
centuated by his sense ot humor, his love of fun, and his
devil-may-care attitude. "Jim" was unable to participate

We have reached the stage where our secondary school course is completed. Some
of us will go further into the mysteries of learning and others will step out to face
the world. We feel, however, that we are prepared to take our next step into life.
We have been as well-trained in our religion as in our studies. The realization that
life is just beginning does not daunt us because our teachers have instilled in us the
desire to get ahead and the ambition to be worthy citizens of this beautiful country.
With all this in mind, we know that God will help us.
Many boys among us have been standouts during their sojourn here. Raymond
Cote, Raymond Loughman, Francis Carrier, James Bolton, Jean Louis Bolduc and Rich-
ard Rondeau are noted for their scholastic achievements. ln the field of sports we
have such names as Joseph Donahue, Captain of the football team, Martin Cogavin,
Roland Martelly, Joseph Perreault and others who have shown themselves to be good,
clean and honest sportsmen. The names of these boys have adorned the honor roll
as well as the sports column. They are examples of what true Christian fellows should
be. They are typical "Mount" boys.
The time has come when we must bid farewell to Mount Saint Charles. We are
proud that we have been permitted to attend and graduate from this true Catholic
school. We cannot express in mere words the respect, the honor and the love that
we hold for our "Alma Mater". To the Chaplain and the Brothers, we wish to bestow
our sincere but humble appreciation for the many courtesies shown unto us. To the
undergraduates, we leave the duty of upholding the honor of our school. May their
sojourn here be as pleasant as ours has been.

Almost everyone is familiar with the scholastic and athletic achievements of our
class. We are all proud of the fact that fifty per cent of the boys have graced the
Honor Roll during the year and at least one or more of our fellow-students have been
prominent on every athletic team.
But since very few are acquainted with their more conspicuous doings, let me
take you for a visit through our class on a beautiful Monday morning when our future
business men are busily preparing for the big week ahead.
There is James Brogie trying to explain to Brother Florian, unsatisfactorily as
usual, why he used red ink instead of blue ink in his English work and why he used
blue ink instead of red ink in his Bookkeeping work. Grenier and Lemieux are not
bothering to close the doors, for the Messrs. Desaulniers and Santanna should make
their entrance in about five more minutes. Beauchemin, Caron, and Normandin are
still arguing about who pulled the worst "l:oner" in yesterday's Royals' game. Gregoire
has just received the result of last week's English examination and yells out, "lt's a
gip." Blais wants Turenne to return his English homework pronto. "Peppy" Jolin is
fast asleep as usual. Plante is bewildered to see some boys come in with as many as
two books. Ethier, proud of his steady improvement in Bookkeeping, remarks to Bour-
get, "Boy, am l good! l'm only two thousand dollars out of the way in my last Work
Sheet." Biron, who has just noticed that his friend is absent again, wonders what
excuse William will have this time. Lavallee should be through with his Commercial
Law in a few more minutes. Paul Cayer, straining himself to see what time it is, mut-
ters disgustedly, "Why don't they make bigger and faster clocks?" The OH BOY
Gum Company sales sheets should show a terrific decrease this month because Pelo-
quin has changed his brand. Andrew Henry is polishing up on his shorthand. Belisle
asks Rogers if he has collected a list of words in Literature because Cam always likes
to have a model to help him along. Champagne and Belanger have started their little
daily discussion which begins exactly at 8:30 and ends promptly at 3 il 5. Poor Mande-
ville! He still cannot convince the Brother that too much studying is responsible
for his being tired every Monday. RO ND O

This group of fair-looking students will soon replace us and assume our respon-
sibilities as dignified seniors.
During this school-year, they have contributed many athletes in the different
sports activities, their name has flown quarterly on the banners of honor, they have
respected us and they displayed a fine spirit for the Alma Mater.
The senior class of '40 will long remember them for their typical habits. We
will long visualize the optimistic Toupin-Myette team, we will listen to the echoes of
the low sonorous voice of Bob Carignan, the gay songs of Bob Boudreau, we will
listen to the famous debating pair, Raymond Linton and Leon Allard, we will overlook
the size Of. Mike Vanasse, we definitely will approve the romance of "Charlie" Allard,
we will all look forward to the generous smile of Tommy DeSisto.
On the field of sports: Marcel Peloquin, Johnny Carr, Jules Guy, William
Heffernan and Johnny McNamara were distinguished players on the hopeful varsity
baseball team. The Junior Varsity hockey team was represented by Russ Ethier,
Marcel Peloquin, and Ray Frost, these boys appear as promising prospects for Brother
Adelard's varsity hockey team.
ln the first quarterly exams, Charles Allard, Omer l-loule, Christopher Sullivan,
John Carr and Marcel Peloquin ranked the highest.
The second quarterly exams found James Munson on top followed by Allard,
l-loule, Peloquin and Sullivan.
-The third quarter results finished with l-loule, Munson and Carr tied for first
place, with Sullivan and Tommy DeSisto close behind.
Other outstanding class members were: William Duffy, the nervy New Jerseyite,
the famous Mousseau brothers, Fran and John, Dick Mulligan, a bright basketball
prospect, Leo Dubuc, who earned his sweater and letter on the football team, and
Walter Morris, the persistent pupil from Wellesley, Mass.
Jack Mahoney tried hard to make the ball. team this year but needs another
season of conditioning in Bro. Elisee's minor league loop.
John McAuliffe was a Junior Varsity basketball player, an intramural baseball
and football star, besides being a member of the Altar Boys' society.

Among the three Junior classes in the school, the Junior Class Commercial
deserves special mention for its achievements both in scholastic and athletic ability.
The Junior commercial class leads the other Junior classes, by placing the three first
students on the Honor Roll in the exams. Under the capable direction of both
Brother Henry and Brother Alvarez, the boys have certainly progressed.
Three prominent members of the Rhode Island State Hockey Team came from
this class, Marcel Pilon, Roland Lemire and Marcel Bessette. ln basketball they were
represented by Captain Walter McPherson, who was given honorable mention on the
Rhode Island State Schoolboy basketball team for Class B. Robert Dusablon was
elected Football Captain for next year. Walter McPherson and Robert Dusablon are
also counted upon by the baseball fans to place the Mount on top of Class B.
The city of Manville, should we say the borough of Woonsocket, had the largest
representation in this class, Roger Roy, Lucien Peloquin, Gerard Roberts were luminar-
ies of that city in the examinations. Without fail, we must say that Brother Henry,
who hails from that borough, finds it natural that bright boys come from there.

Presenting the Sophomore Classical group with its outstanding intellectuals and
promising athletes! This class of fine young gentlemen have proved themselves
capable of following in the footsteps of the senior-bound juniors.
The leaders in the scholastic department are John McHugh, Emile Robert, Robert
L'Heureux, Leo Dyer, Lawrence Frost, Jean-Paul Hazebrouck, George Riley, and
Gerard Sutherland. This flock of youngsters are the cream of the crop as far as
scholastic ability is concerned.
However, we must not omit me boys who appear as stars-to-be in the field of
athletics. These include George McCormack, Walter Bacon, and John Dubois, Junior
Varsity Basketball players who will probably be on the first team-next year. Brother
Michael's Junior League this year introduced new up and coming athletes, such as
Francis Jeton, Paul Foisy, Lawrence Frost, Joe Connolly, and Henry Drewes. Rene
Morin and Normand Andrews added their bit to athletic prominence by being members
of the varsity football squad.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT: J
Daniel iWild Horsel Martin is quite the singer!
Francis Greeley has developed a school girl complexion.
David O'Brien has become Brother Elisee's right-hand man.
Francis Boyd fthe Springfield Special? still doesn't know what the score is yet.
Henry Drewes refuses to share his high marks with Edward Greene.
Timothy O'Connor is this class's gift to the fair sex.
Lawrence Frost came out of Hicksville into civilization.

The Sophomore class is the largest one at the Mount, but this does not prevent
it from capturing its share of the honors. In the classroom or on the athletic field,
you often see these Sophomores excel.
Many of these boys are in the Junior division under the supervision of Rev. Bro.
Michael. Tom Perkins, president of last year's Freshman class, is a prominent mem-
ber, playing all sports and doing well in his studies. Joe Cannon, however, prefers
sports alone, and is doing a good job of it, he should be ready for the varsity next year!
Joe Connolly, hailing from North Smithfield, is another fine chap. Joe's the
son of the former Boston Braves outfielder. Of course you all know that reckless
driver, Mike Borek, from Millville. Lawrence Frost, Dick Rondeau's New York pal,
wants to be a hockey star some day, while Louis Panuzio and Francis Jeton desire to
stick to the football field.
A few of these boys made good with the varsity in their first year out. They
are, .lim Murphy in football and baseball, Bob Ouelette in football and basketball, and
Walt Bacon in baseball.
Joseph Barry is one of the leading scholars while Tom Perkins, Lawrence Frost,
and Walt Bacon are not far behind.
Fellows, you have just passed that "Sophomore iinx", so from now till your senior
year, you should strive to acquire your share of the spoils, especially in the classroom.

Among the classes that may rightly be proud of their achievements are the two
Sophomore-Commercial classes. These classes have been under the expert guidance
of both Brother Mathias and Brother Phileas. ,
It has been the duty of these Brothers to instruct their classes in the elements
of Bookkeeping, English, Commercial Arithmetic and various other studies.
Foremost among the student-scholars of this class are Ernest Lessard, Edward
Curka, Charles Richard, Ernest Segalla, Fernand Lamontagne, Donald Beaudoin, Felix
Oleaga, Thomas Ling, Freddy lvlilliard, and not the least, Gabriel Bessette.
Prominent members in athletics, Robert Ouelette, Robert Cormier, Antoine
Trudeau, add to the cIass's prestige.
It is generally agreed that when the time comes for them to graduate, the school
shall be justly proud of their accomplishments. Class of '42 hitch your wagon to the
Seniors' star. Pray and work to the best of your ability. Co-operate with the Brothers
and do not abuse your many privileges. May your senior year be as happy and
fruitful as ours. y

"First we make our habits, then they make us."
Keeping this quotation in mind, we may form a candid picture of this illustrious
freshman class of l94O. Their persistency and sincerity have distinguished them
from former freshman groups. lt is apparent, through their record of scholastic and
athletic achievements, that they realize how the inculcation of the correct habits
now, will alleviate the dreaded "last minute" work in time to come.
The class could be ideally represented scholastically by "Cluck" Santanna, who has
made many an upperclassman look with awe at such an enviable record. Edward
Muldoon has also shown considerable ability in studies. Fred Musser ranks high
among the leaders.
Although they have not been able to participate in varsity sports, the freshmen
have displayed splendid talent in the Junior High Sports League. Among the fore-
most of these athletes are: Joe Cannon, Fred Sharby, and James Gookin.
l n the short months that have intervened since the opening of school in Septem-
ber, we have made the acquaintances of some of the most congenial personalities of
the academy. A fine example of a friendly, frank lad, is Thomas McManus.
After several months of arduous work, these freshmen have attained sufficient
knowledge to give their teachers a cause for just pride and to permit the latter to
justly promote them to a higher grade.

I think it proper and fitting that we, the seniors, salute the "kids" of the busi-
ness course, the first year commercial. These boys, under the expert direction of
Bro. Louis and Bro. Joseph-Albert, are taught the elementary subjects of the High
School course world.
These "kids", as they are known, are fresh from grammar school, therefore the
teachers must double their efforts to break them into the daily routine work of high
school. The freshmen at the "Mount" should consider themselves lucky for they are
able to learn the art of typewriting in their very first year, an opportunity available
only in the junior year of most schools.
The most noted fellows of their groups are Henry Henson, proficient in both
French and English, Alphonse Marcoux and Anthony Nardolillo, stellar athletes of
Junior High Sports, Frederick Sharby, practically a professional on the piano-accor-
dion, Leonard Rousseau, small package of sparkling personality, Eymard Willoughby,
argumentative little whipper-snapper, Thomas Mclvlanus, living specimen of joviality,
most handsome, and Edmund Robbins, quote, "Ninety next time, Brother", unquote.
To our "Kids" we offer our best wishes, and we hope that the class of '44 will
follow in the footsteps of our intellectualists and our athletes.

PROIVIINENT MEMBERS OE THE PUBLIC-SPEAKING CLASSES
WINNING CLASS IN THE ORATGRICAI. CONTEST
Public Speaking Classes
Realizing the deep significance of being able to express thought in word pub-
licly, the faculty reorganized and greatly emphasized the public speaking classes
this year. The daily sessions, attended by all the high school students, one class
each day, were conducted by the competent moderator, Rev. Bro. Theodore. This
tactful, well-versed and ever so popular teacher immediately attracted the attention
of all his pupils and stimulated them to earnest endeavor.
The class began by learning the fundamental principles of speaking, the basis
on which further excellence in style was to follow. Nervousness and timidity were
banished by actual speaking, and replaced by confidence and forcefulness. When
our teacher believed that we had overcome these primary defects, he stressed the
urgent need of other qualities indispensable to good speaking, as the correct pronun-
ciation, a clear, well-modulated voice, and the proper use of gestures.
Having attained a considerable degree of excellence in simple speaking, our
attention was devoted to familiarizing ourselves to the practicable and finer types of
discourse. The course was enlivened by our participating in various forms of de-
bates, and usage of Parliamentary procedure. Wits were sharpened and humor was
enriched by 'open forum and round table discussion.
Evidence that these classes have borne fruit may be seen by the remarkable
performance of James Tobin, winner of the Bishop's award. Others, like James
Rogers, Francis Carrier, Joe Donahue, Raymond Cote, Andy Doherty, Martin Cogavin,
Robert Cormier, Charles Dennen, Robert Boudreau, Jules Guy, Raymond Branchaud,
Leon Allard, Leo Dubuc and Charles Desmarais are excellent examples.
After several months of arduous work, the faculty feels certain that it has pro-
duced young men who can forcefully defend their firm ideals, and not be daunted
by the prospect of speaking in public, an important capstone of education.

J JAMES TOBlN
Winner of the Oratorical Contest
James J. Tobin ot Somerville, Mass, the man with a confident personality, was
awarded the Bishop Keough oratorical trophy tor l94O in a contest sponsored by
secondary schools ot the Roman Catholic Diocese ot Providence at St. Raphael's
Academy, Pawtucket, R. l. Well known tor his loguacity in the weekly public
speaking classes, Jim achieved the "surprise" ot the year in the Academy records.
ln capturing tirst place in the boys' division tor the annual oratorical contest of
Catholic high schools in Providence, the high-spirited Jimmy defeated representatives
from LaSalle Academy, De LaSalle Academy, and St. Raphael's Academy.
The contest had as its theme, "The Catholic Church and Peace". Our energetic
and ambitious delegate spoke on the subject, "Peace Through the Church, the
Mystical Body" and stressed the necessity ot bringing God back into human lite,
Tobin averred that the present state ot the world is due to the neglect ot the Church
by the peoples and leaders of the world. Catholics, he said, have the responsibility
of leading the world into the way ot peace by leading men to seek God through
Christ and His Church.
We are very proud ot Jiml RICHARD RONDEAU
The Football Review
Coach Ray Vaudreuil, the young energetic mentor from Worcester, had many
sophomores and juniors playing on the varsity this year in order to produce a strong
combination for next year's football campaign. Joseph Donahue, of Flushing, Long
Island, captained this year's representation on the gridiron and although it was the
poorest team in the history of the Academy, Joe's aggressive fighting spirit and
dependable playing was the feature of every game.
The following boys on the football team will graduate in June: Capt. Donahue,
l-lartwell, Cayer, Martelly, Perreault, Bilodeau, Everett, Cogavin, McDonald, Beauch-
emin, and Heffernan.
RESUME OE Tl-lE l94O FOOTBALL CAMPAIGN
M. S. C. O Westerly l3
Bewildered by a strong aerial attack, the Mount lost their opening game at
Barry Field. Living up to all expectations, Capt. Joe Donahue performed brilliantly
at right guard. John Mousseau and Marty Cogavin played well also.
M. S. C. O Lockwood 6
ln a very evenly matched battle, the visitors came out on top by virtue of a
2l yard touchdown run in the third period. Bob Dusablon's passes to McPherson and
Ouellette were a great help to the Mount. Q
M. S. C. O ' Aldrich 20
Displaying power, speed, and an excellent aerial attack, Aldrich was more than
a match for the l-lilltoppers. Dick Hartwell and Roland Martelly stopped many
rushes by their numerous tackles.
M. S. C. O West Warwick 33
Dick Everett's quarterbacking and Bob Dusablon's long punts kept the cham-
pionship West Warwick eleven from scoring more points than they did.
M. S. C. O Classical 27
Aided by a horde of lightning-fast backs, the Providence eleven was the fifth
straight victor of the Mounties in the Class B league.
M. S. C. O St. Raphael 27
Much after the manner of the preceding games, our boys went down to defeat
again. The second-stringers played practically the entire game and they performed
M. S. C. 7 Central Falls 20
Bob Ouellette, promising sophomore halfback, had the unique distinction of
scoring 'the team's only touchdown in the football campaign. The score came late
in the fourth quarter after the opponents had tallied on two blocked kicks and an
M. S. C. O Woonsocket l4
Touchdowns which resulted after a 73 yard drive and the recovery of a free ball
in the end zone spelled the doom to our team in the Thanksgiving Day classic. Bob
Dusablon and Capt. Donahue did meritorious work every minute of the game.
The Basketball Season
Showing a complete reversal of form from that which was displayed by last
year's quintet, which won only two games, the surprisingly strong l939-'40 basketball
team completed a highly successful season with an even percentage of seven wins
and seven defeats. Coach Ray Vaudreuil was the important factor in the team's
abrupt style of play. Ray was well-respected by his charges for his boundless knowl-
edge of basketball and they proved their appreciation by turning in an exceptionally
ln the Class B loop, victories were won against Lockwood and St. Raphael, twice
each, and West Warwick. ln comparison, our toys lost twice to Westerly, Woon-
socket, and Central Falls and once to Aldrich. The Red and Blue were also tri-
umphant in two exhibition games against South Bellingham High and St. Mary's
Walter McPherson of Woonsocket, one of the best guards performing in the
Class B division this year, was the captain of this plucky team. Jimmy Rogers, Bill
Dubois, Wilt Jolin, and Fran Gardella of the graduating class played on the team also.
Bob Cormier, high-scoring forward, and Bob Ouellette, an experienced center,
have been elected co-captains ot next season's squad and they certainly deserve that
honor. ln conclusion, we hope that the l94O-'4l basketball team will rise to equal
heights that the preceding team has procured.

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
MS. C. 8 St. Francis Prep. 2
Arriving in Providence on Sunday morning, March 3l, from New York via boat,
the St. Francis Prep hockey team was greeted by Rev. Brother Adelard, generalissimo
of Mount Hockey affairs, and other school dignitaries. The team was the guest at the
Hilltop Institute until game time in the afternoon.
Going into the contest with a winning streak over a two-year period, marred by
one tie, the New Yorkers retained supreme confidence in themselves. However, their
attitude vanished soon after they glimpsed our fast-skating Canadian trio on the
Displaying their usual systematic goal-scoring parade, the Mounties racked up
four goals apiece in the first periods. Lemire high-lighted the offense drive by
tallying four times, Tremblay dented the cords thrice, and Co-Capt. Belanger ac-
counted for the other goal. - .
Through the victory, Rev. Brother Adelard and his colorful Flying-Frenchmen
laid claim to the National Schoolboy Hockey crown, St. Francis having been the only
school north, east, south, or west to accept a bid to attempt to dethrone the

With a new coach at its helm and many new faces in its line-up, the Saints'
baseball team set out with high hopes of conquering all other teams in the Class
B loop, Mr. Raymond Vaudreuil, basketball and football coach, succeeded Mr.
Louis Lepine as this year's baseball coach. Asbie Jolin, starting his third year at
third base, was unanimously elected captain of the team.
Six lettermen remained from the l939 outfit, namely: Red Dusablon, shortstop,
Asbie Jolin, third base, Joe Perreault, catcher, Al Gregoire and Jules Guy, out-
fielders, and John McNamara and Walt McPherson, pitchers. The biggest losses
were Dick Rondeau's ineligibility and Gus Galipeau's departure to the St. Louis
Cardinal's training camp in Florida.
ln the infield, Bob Cormier took over the duties of first baseman, and Marcel
Peloquin, a capable youngster, took over the second base obligations. Roger Mande-
ville has been retained as a pitcher. The other members of the squad are: Jim Murphy,
John Carr, Leo McDuff, Gerard Roberts, Fred St. George, and William Heffernan.
The Mount was nosed out 3-2 in the first test of the season against La Salle
Academy. In the Class B games, the team has toppled Sacred Heart lO-l, but were
beaten 5-4 by St. Raphael's in extra innings These few games have given the
M. S. C. fans high hopes for a successful season.

DEVOTION TO THE SACRED HEART IS FOREMOST AT THE MOUNT
"Behold the heart that loved men so much"l Such were the words of Our Saviour,
Jesus Christ, at the time of his revelation to Saint Margaret Mary. Previous to
this, devotion to the Sacred Heart had not been widespread. Now, however, convents
and monasteries were set up to further this special devotion to Jesus, We, the
fortunate students of this splendid Academy, are instructed by the Brothers of the
Sacred Heart, sterling educators, who have dedicated their lives to the spreading
of this great devotion to Our Lord.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart may be defined as Devotion to the adorable Heart
of Jesus Christ in so far as this heart represents and recalls his love, God gives his
heart to us as a symbol of his love. Our duty is to cherish and return this love.
We, students of Mount Saint Charles, are well aware of the powers of the Sacred
Heart. ln our lovely chapel the statue of the Sacred Heart tops the main altar,
before which students constantly pray and burn vigil lights to obtain needed spiritual
aid, Before every game athletes may be found in the chapel appealing to the Sacred
Heart for protection and for victory, if agreeable to Him.
The front wall of every room is adorned by a picture of the Sacred Heart and
each student dedicates every work sheet to the Sacred Heart by the letters: A, C. J.
which mean, "The Sacred Heart Be Loved."
With an environment such as this, it is no wonder that the Mount boys believe
the Sacred Heart to be their staunchest advocate, And when they go forth to
fight in the amphitheater of life they will constantly turn to the Sacred Heart for
succor, banking their assurance on His words.

Snapshots at Random
This distinguished graduating class ot the grammar school course displayed
promptitude, courtesy, and intelligence throughout the entire year. What more could
a teacher demand ot them?
Heading the list ot individual characters were the names ot David Buckley and
Franny lVlcAulitte. These two youngsters will certainly attain scholastic honors
in their high school days it they continue such outstanding class work. Jimmy Coyne,
Jack Turner, and James Reilly also proved they could get results by constant ettorts.
Dicky Frost, who relishes the goal-tending position ot Davey Kerr, New York
Rangers, captained the Indians who won the Class B hockey title ot the Junior
League. Robert Dusseault was a member ot that team also Tom Gallagher played
on the Junior l-ligh Baseball team. Arthur Carson took care ot the managerial reins
for all Brother lVlichael's athletic teams.
"Tex" Welles, the loguacious lad, is well-known tor his tall stories. Joe "Teeth"
Woodlock played guard on the Robins team, Class B basketball champions ot the
Junior League. Edward Lutz, and Richard Bonneville, late-comers to the class, and
Joseph Zumbo were capable students who never got in trouble.
Brother Bernard, who had the honor ot teaching these boys, was very proud ot
his class and he wishes that the boys continue their fine work in first-year high.

GRADE VllaBROTl-lER ROlNlALD'S CLASS
l-lere we have the babies of the school, They are apprentices beginning on a
long and strenuous journey through many years of work in studies.
The hard and happy years of high school and college lie before them. Perhaps
at times, their footsteps may falter, some may fall to the wayside but for the most
part we are sure that with the sterling qualities of perseverance and loyalty that they
now display, they will forge ahead slowly and surely to the time when the Mount
shall be proud to present them its highest honor, the high school diploma symbolizing
their success in secondary work.
l-lighest honors of the year belong to Rene Soucy and Robert Pelletier with Ray
Gervais, Al Derochers, and Roger Poirier following close behind The "Beau Brummelf'
we are told, is handsome Paul McDermott. The class athlete is Rudy Chioffi having
won his letter as guard on Brother lVlichael's Junior l-ligh football team. Robert
Donahue, following the footsteps of brother Joe, varsity football captain, won the
title of the most popular boy.
Julian Oleaga, the little Spanish boy, keeps in good with Brother Ronald furnish-
ing him with stamps. The most gentlemanly is Charlie Trainor, the young red-head
from Providence. Bob Sheridan, Ray Beaudry and Louis Bertholet are all-round
athletes Robert "Doc" Savage and Ray Gaudet are new-comers who give promise
of doing great things,
