Yes, and with the passage of time we have come to understand only too well the true significance of that old adage, "the old giveth way to the new". Then time has come when we must give up our places to others as our predecessors did to us. We are no longer the careless, frivolous youths of four years ago, whose happy laughter rang through the corridors and classrooms. Today we are sober and thoughtful, for we realize that the day has come when we must part. We must leave those who have made it possible for us to enjoy the happiest four years we have ever known, who have enabled us to accomplish the many and worthy things we have done. It seems only yesterday that we were a restless crowd, eager to trod along that road newly opened tor us-High School. There we would be accorded the dignity of our years. No longer would we be treated as children! Oh, but what a disappointment that first year was! We were not welcomed into the comradship of the upper classes as equals. The injus- tice of it all-treated as something beneath their notice, upon whom was bestowed the humiliating title of "Freshies". However, to the higher classes, we owe much, for, in our ostracism we banded more closely to- gether-a union which survives to this day and which we dearly treasure. In-as-much as we were able, we took a small part in sports. Then, before we knew it, summer had come and gone and we found ourselves Sophomores. With the realization that now we had come into our own, we plunged into work. Our first duty was that of election of class officers. II-B proceeded to elect John Hart, president, Tris Bologn- ino, vice president, Robert McGinnis, secretaryg and Frank Lynch, treas- urer. II-A reelected George Feeley and made John McCaffrey his assist- ant, giving Frank Gibbons the office of secretary and Robert Wuest that of treasurer. During our Second Year we were represented in football by McCaf- frey, O'Byrne, Graham and Byrne, by Gibbons, Hart, Byrne, Hadlow and O'Byrne in the basketball J. V., by Bonfiglio, Graham, Goldmann, Byrne, Reddy, Rowe, Lynch, Zock and Hennebry on the cinder path. Then, barring our way into Third Year came the final exams. With determination we overcame these obstacles and the year was started right by III-B electing C. Hennebry, T. Bolognino, W. Goldmann and P. O'Rourke to the offices of president, vice president, secretary and treas- urer, respectively, and T. O'Byrne, J. McCaffrey, R. O'Connor and R. Wuest held the corresponding positions in III-A. Of course, the name of "Juniors" was carried to glory on the athletic field. Suffice it to mention that John McCaffrey was elected football cap- tain of the varsity. Then, too, the "Gold and Blue" had some of its con- tributors from the Juniors, among them being Edmund Kiernan, John Sullivan and John Noonan, the latter being especially noted for his fine poetical contributions. Page twenty MOUNTAINEER t Then, all too soon did we become Seniors. Examinations, vacations were over and once again we were renewing old friendships, after which we proceeded to the polls for the last high school election we would ever hold. There the Senior class bestowed the highest office-that of presi- dent-on our worthy classmate, Tom O'Byrne of IV-A, whose record of the preceding year warranted his reelection. To even things up, John Dooley of IV-B was elected vice president. The other offices went to "Buddy" May and Robert Wuest of IV-A, and Pat O'Rourke and Warren Goldmann of IV-B. In the field of sports the Seniors, feeling that their course was fast drawing to a close, worked tirelessly. On the football field it was Cap- tain P. O'Rourke, centerg P. Byrne, fullback: W. Christopher, quarter- back, O'Byrne, right end, Graham, right 'halfg Hadlow, left end, McCaf- frey, Hennessey, Johnson, Jordan, Cronin, May and Finnegan-all helped to carry to higher laurels the fair name of the Senior class. F. 'Gibbons was Manager, assisted by J. Drew. Again in basketball, the Seniors held 'sway by the presence of J. Had- low, P. Byrne, T. O'Byrne, J. Noonan, F. Gibbons, J. Dooley, J. Drew and C. Hennebry, Manager. As for track it is expected that the Seniors will "have the situation well in hand" again as they have had in other sports. It is understood, of course, that athletics was not the only thing in which the names of Seniors held the. limelight. It is significant to note that of the twenty positions on the staff of the "Gold and Blue", fifteen were held by Seniors. The responsibility of Editor-in-Chief fell upon John Noonan, who deftly handled the position. As assistant he had the services of Stephen Duggan. Then, too, among the Seniors are N. Sabi, H. Finnegan, A. Rowe, A. Ihle, J. Drew, J. Lyons, J. Noonan and S. Dug- gan whose names generally adorn the Honor Roll. When in March, Reverend Father Corbett, S.J. addressed the Senior class, all listened attentively, for the Reverend Father spoke on the fu- ture of high school graduates, and how we should fit ourselves for the different walks of life which we should soon tread. Now that Commencement is near, we have put aside trepidation and buckled down to make our last few weeks at the Mount something to re- member with joy in the years to come. We should not fail to express our sincere gratitude to the Brothers who have untiringly aided in making our stay at Mount St., Michael pleasant and instructive. Without their invaluable help, we should be ill, prepared to face the problems that will confront us in active life. To them the Senior class of '33 express their heartfelt appreciation. Though sorrowful at the thought of leaving so many true friends, we go forward with confidence, for we know that the education we have received at the Mount "will hold us in good stead". So, departing as true Mopntaineers, we ask that you keep us in pleasant memory. Vale!

NORMAN BARRON "The Baron" Baseball 3g Football 3, 45 Sodality 3, 4. JOHN A. BLAKE "Ambassador" Sodality 3, 4. Page twenty-two JOHN A. BLAKE NORMAN BARRON A MOST quiet and unassuming "Baron" this Nor- man is. Regular of habit, and calm of disposi- tion, he performs his school duties Without the least bit of fuss. His recitation and test marks are always satisfactory. And Norman is also athletically inclin- ed. He had his fling at baseball and football. Last fall his services were surely appreciated by the foot- ball coach. He did not report for baseball this sea- son in order to give someone else a chance. May we suggest that you turn to page forty-six of this Annual to get an idea of what a little dear Norman was be- fore he got his hair bobbed. The "Baron's" future- but that's a dark secret. To all inquiries he gives only his friendly smile and Wise shaking of the head. Here's wishing you God speed, Norman. THIS Blake lad is full of mischief. Under a suave exterior he conceals a fun-loving and carefree busybody. pHe is a very pleasant pal and is generally rather good at entertaining. Words, words--yes, John can and does use them. He argued himself into being called the "Ambassador". Musically inclined, John made good use of this gift during the football season in leading the School March. And, do you re- member the game at which he formed a one-man band? We must admire the "Ambassador" for his school spirit and general interest in all our activities. Everr though John is gifted with talent usually asso- ciated with the law profession, he intends to study medicine. We are certain of his success in this field. - 'www-v':-iv-v Q IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlllllilllllllIllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlIIIIlIllIlllllllllllIllllIlIll!IIllIIIllIIIIIIIllIlII!IIlIIIlIIllIIIIIIlllllllllllllllllilllllllIIIllllllllllIIllIIIIIIIIIIllIIIlIIIIIIIllIIIIIIIIIIIIIlIIIIIIIIIIIIIllllllllllllllllllllllil FREDERICK A. BUNGE JOHN P. BYRNE WHEN Fred entered the Mount in '30 coming all the way' from Argentina, he had some difficulty to follow Sophomore work as he did not speak English fluently, but he soon overcame that obstacle and made his way to the head of the class. He won the Scholarship medal in second year. "Fritz" had started with the class of '34 but he joined us Septem- ber last. In the field of sports he also did well. He took part in track and gymnasium apparatus work. In the first he was outstanding as a sprinter and in the latter he was best on the parallels. Fred likes electrical and radio work and he plans to go back to Argentina this summer, after an absence of three years, where he will pursue a training course in en- gineering with the American Telephone and Tele- graph Company. SINCE "Pat" entered the Mount, four years ago, he has been the backbone of all the sports participated in by the school. His sterling and brilliant work on the football, baseball, basketball and track teams will be long talked about and admired at the Mount. No one's claim to popularity could be more surely founded than that of Pat. His good nature and friendly spirit have made him a sought-after companion by all who have had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with him. Although much of his time has been taken up with sports, Pat always managed to get along well in his studies. He intends to continue his schooling at Columbia. Knowing something of his grit and de- termination we have no fears for his future success. E Illllllllllllllll llllllllllllll E E FREDERICK A. BUNGE Cl'Fritz77 HFred!!

Columbia Page twenty-four WILLIAM J. CHRISTOPHER MATTHEW F. CHARDE SHORT, fair hair, blue eyes, a smiling countenance -in short, Matt has been with us for his Whole high school course. A practical joker, he has afforded his classmates many happy moments by pointed quips and happy humor. In Freshman and Sophomore years, Matt proudly attended to his duties as assistant manager of the football teams. In third year he be- came affiliated with the O'Conne1l boy, other half of the "Mutt and J eff" team, and the close friendship has lasted to this day. Though small in size, Matt is big of heart, always ready to give a helping hand to him who needs it. From Mount St. Michael he will go to Manhattan to pursue a business course. We hope the high stool will in time give place to the banker's chair. WCHRISN hails from Lawrence, Mass., the place where football players are made. He became popular with the whole student body shortly after his arrival because of his jovial character and prowess on the gridiron. Whoever got in the way of Chris' straight arm had something to talk about after the game, even if he was a deaf-mute. The way he direct- ed plays from his position at quarter-back earned for him a place on the city All Star team for Private High Schools. Friendly towards all, he soon became ac- quainted with friends of his friends so that he did not long feel the results of migration. 'Tis said he even writes occasionally to some Westchester town. Columbia is the college where Chris will study busi- ness and play football. We expect to hear big things of him in both these activities.

COYNE JAMES M. CRONIN IIBERNIEH is a quiet chap. His entrance to the Mount two years ago was rather providential. Since then we have had an ardent and enthusiastic support- er of all sports. One need not be an athelete to dis- play school spirit and this Bernie has demonstrated by his whole-hearted support of student activities. History and mathematics appeal mostly to him and although his future is yet undecided, we are sure he will make his mark in whatever occupation he may choose as his lifework. Bernie's high standing in class and natural studious demeanor denote a serious character whose only aim is true success. IN FEBRUARY of 1931, a quiet young man entered the Mount and in a very short space of time was classified as a close friend of all. He it was who gave us a fuller understanding of that old saying, "Smile and the world smiles with you." Daily Jim's smile sent the students happily off to their studies. A great lover of the outdoors and interested in mechan- ics, this young fellow combines both avocations on a Saturday by breathing in country air while tinkering with his antediluvian Pontiac. After graduation Jim hopes to become a flying cadet and in due time win those coveted wings of the Army Air Corps. Happy landings, Jim! BERNARD J. COYNE E "Bernie" 2 sodalrify 3, 4. E E E 2 JAMES M.

DOOLEY JOHN entered the Mount in '31, A ready mixer, he soon made friends with all those with Whom he came into contact. As a writer he realized the high literary standards attainable at Mount St. Michael. During his stay here John showed his ability as a scholar and an athlete. In the latter field he Was prominent on the basketball court and baseball dia- mond. Much of the pitching duty was carried by him during the season of '33. His ready smile and humor have rendered him very popular with all of us. John expects to continue acquiring school knowledge at Manhattan College, and we are sure that his efforts will be crowned with success. TIMIDLY examining the new school he had just en- tered, back in '31, John calmly and seriously came to the conclusion that the Mount was the place he had been looking for. He was very quiet, and slow at get- ting acquainted. As his shyness wore off, the number of his friends increased at a surprising rate. He has shown his loyalty to his school by the active part he took in all student activities. On the Cross Country and Track teams, John showed his grit and determina- tion. In Senior year he made the Varsity Basketball team. Here he gave several fine performances by his calmness and deadly accuracy. "Deacon", so named because of his non-excitable nature, has heard the Master's call and will study for the Priesthood. He leaves with our best wishes for a fruitful career. .-.M . .

DUGGAN HAROLD F. X. FINNEGAN ALTHOUGH "Steve" has been in Mount St. Michael but one short year, he has made his presence agreeable and useful in many ways. Genial in charac- ter and of a helpful disposition, he is well liked by both his teachers and fellow students. He was chosen Ass't Editor-in-Chief of the "Gold and Blue" and Edi- tor-in-Chief of the "Mountaineer"-so much for his literary ability and interest in the art of writing. Some day Steve may reach the goal of his ambition by writing "The Great American Novel". Armed with sterling qualities of character and an earnest desire to succeed, Steve is well prepared to meet whatever difficulties may confront him in his business career. SHY in disposition yet strong of heart, Harold -F. X. faithfully plodded his way' through the four years of high school work prescribed by Mount St. Michael and always managed to be on. the Honor list though he found time to take part in extra-curricular activi- ties. He distinguished himself on the football field and also in track. Because of his retiring disposition, Harry does not make friends so very easilyg yet those favored with his friendship have come to know what it means to have a real and devoted pal. He will con- tinue his studies next year at Manhattan College. STEPHEN J. DUGGAN " Steve" . Ass't Editor-in-Chief of "Gold and Blue" 43 Edi- tor-in-Chief of '33 Moun- taineefrg Mgr. Baseball 4.

He has been here for seven years. There is something about Frank that makes everyone like him. We can't adequately express it, but never- theless it is there. The nearest quality that suggests itself is pleasantness, but to make the qualification complete we must include his natural ability in sports. Watch the Mount rooters shout with excitement when he runs the "century" or dribbles a basketball through the opposition and you will understand some of the reason for his popularity. Frank also does his best in his studies. He plans to do his studying at night next year, and explore the business world during the day. ' THE able-bodied Warren Goldmann became acquaint- ed with the school two years ago. "Goldie", with his manly proportions, has been one of the mainstays of the football team for the last two seasons during which time he successfully filled the guard position. His endeavors have not been restricted to the gridiron alone, however, for he has held the position of class secretary and kept the readers of the "Gold and Blue" posted on the doings of the Seniors. If we examine the serious side of Warren's life we Will discover that he has the ambition of becoming a Doctor and intends to study the elements of his future profession at Ford- ham University. We are sure that "Goldie" will be as successful in the medical world as he was in win- ning the admiration of his classmates. lllllllllllllllllllllllHlllllllll1llllllllIlIlll11IlIIlIlIIIllIIIIIIllIIIIIiIII!II'llIlillllllllllllllllllllllllll1.llllhlllll1lllllllllllll1IlllIIIIllIII!IIIlIIlIIIIIIllIIIIIIIlIllIlllIlllIlllllllIIllIllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllll'IIIllIII!ElEll w ' , . - ROBERT A. GRAHAM JOHN J. HADLOW IN THE early part of '30, Mount St. Michael was fa- vored with the advent of a young titian-haired youth named "Bob" Graham. "Red", as he is better known, has the happy faculty of being able to face all forms of difficulty with a smile. We therefore have every reason to believe that he will become a successful busi- ness man, as it is his intention to go into business. Bob has been a source of much entertainment, both to his amusement and otherwise. He has made a name for himself in the field of sports by his splendid per- formance on the gridiron, cinder track and tennis court. We sincerely hope that the esteem we have for "Red" will follow him in all his undertakings through life. JOHN discovered the Mount five years ago. Since then he has been very much at school, being a resi- dent student all these years. Thus, we've had plenty of time to become acquainted with this lad, and a fine companion he proved to be. "Haddock"-he is a bit hard of hearing-knows how to smile when the going is rough. This disposition and his natural good na- ture have brought him successfully through many a difficulty. A good athlete, he gave his best in football, basketball, baseball and track. John has a good store of patience, but one cannot abuse him always with im- punity: once his "Irish" is aroused, better beware! He will do his studying at Manhattan next year. -A , .-H. b - M va- ROBERT A. GRAHAM uRedn ulgwrostyn Major Letter-Track 3, , 43 Football 3, 43 Tennis 3, 45 Sodality 3, 4. ' Tufts JOHN J.

HENNEBRY JOHN F. HEFFERNAN WJACKH holds a unique distinction. He is indisputa- bly the most quiet and unassuming student in the class of '33. Yet he holds in the hearts of all a place of respect and friendship. Those who know him best realize what a fine fellow he is and are very fast friends of his. For, in his quiet way there is truly a charm which one cannot overlook. Never forward, Jack plods his silent path, doing the best he can. In Sophomore and Junior years he did very good Work on both baseball and football teams. He did not take part in athletics in Senior year so that he could de- vote more time to his studies. We shall always re- member J ack as a true gentleman and faithful friend. CHARLIE was a resident student for his first two years at the Mount. His folks having' moved from "The Windy City" to Mount Vernon. he became a day scholar. During his five vears' stav here he always had the best interests of the school at heart and was a firm supporter of all its activities. In Junior year he was elected President of the class and filled that office with befitting dignity. "Peanuts" is the proud owner of a trim little coupe that has done much pas- senger service between the school and a nearbv sub- wav station. Charlie's genial character and sincerity won him a host of friends. He hopes to drop anchor at Annapolis for his college course as he likes the tang' of the briny deep. llIilIIiIIIIIIIIllllllllllllllllllllllllllHillllllllIlllliIIIllIlIIIIIIIIIIIIIIllIIIIIIIIIIIIlIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlllllllllllllllllillIIllIllIIlIllllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIllIIIIIIIlIIIIIIIIIIlIIIIlIIIlIlIlIIIlIIIIIIIlIIIlIIIIlIIIIIIlllllllllllllllllllllll MICHAEL R. HENNESSEY FRANK A. HOFFMAN WHILE we were still timid Sophs, a big, good-natur- ed hulk made his appearance, later we came to know him as "Skippy", Though of large proportions, "Mike" is in no sense a bully. On the contrary, he is as kindly and friendly as any Senior. Whenever "Skippy" had to stand during class, the aisle wherein he stood was indeed very full of feet. He was of con- siderable help to the football team once a pair of shoes was found that fit him. In his Senior year he made the Varsity eleven, playing at guard. When the foot- ball season was over, Mike never tarried long at school after dismissal. 'Tis said he was booked for evenings rather ofteng social affairs, of course. From Mt. St. Michael, "Skippy" will migrate to Manhattan. FRANK is a jovial and optimistic sort of chap. He has been closely associated with a number of the school's activities. In all of these he showed the same interest and spirit that characterized his every act. As assistant manager, then manager of the track team, he worked for the best interests of the school. An ardent tennis fan, he made the team in Senior year. During the same year he, in company with Tom Rice, had charge of the humor column in the "Gold and Blue". It is not always easy to find appropriate jokes that will bring a laugh in "Depression" times. Frank has decided that his future career lies in the field of legal pursuits. He will go to St. John's next year. MICHAEL R. HENNESSEY csMikexv uskippyn Football 3, 4. Manhattan FRANK A.

He is a scientist at heart as has been proved in the various laboratories. His generosity is well known among us and no one is given the "cold shoulder" if he seeks help from Arty. Because of his interest in things scientific, he expects to pursue col- lege work that will eventually lead him to electrical engineering. He may begin his higher studies in Notre Dame. Whatever college he may choose will be fortunate in acquiring so apt a pupil. lJTONY" is an optimistic and enthusiastic sort of fel- low. Although book learning does not come to him as easily as it may to some, he always managed to get along. We have yet to see him downhearted over some obstacle that may confront him. Very fond of athletics, Tony gave much of his spare time to sports. As half-back on the football team he afforded the spectators thrills by his mad rushes through Op- posing tacklers. But it is especially in baseball that Tony showed us how the game should be played. As centerfielder he ensnared flies within a radius of hun- dreds of feet and at bat had the opposing outfielders show their wares. He intends to become an engineer, and if his enthusiasm grows with his years, we may yet hear of his trying to tube or bridge the Atlantic. lllllHIIIIIIIIIIIIlllllllllllllllliHWHHiHiHMlillllllllNlIHHIHlilllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIliiIIliIlHlIHHUHlHHNHillllilllillillillIllIlllilIilllilIIIIIII!IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHillllllllllllllllllllllllNH1llillllH1Hlllllllllllllilllllll ROBERT J. JORDAN VINCENT T. KELLY OF THOSE whose popularity is well earned Bob stands out prominently. His persistence and determina- tion on the gridiron made him a respected opponent to visiting teams. A genial willingness to learn brought him the esteem of the faculty as well as that of the student body. He has a remarkable aptitude for the study of Chemistry and allied sciences. His smiling face is well known and liked by all those who have ever come into contact with him. After gradua- tion Bob will enter the University of Maryland to study Dentistry. His good nature will serve him well in the profession which he intends to follow. We are sure that "Boo-Boo" will attain the same success in college that he acquired at Mount St. Michael. IIGOOD things come in small packages". This ap- pears to be true of diminutive Vin. Rumor has it that the reason why he started school a few days late was that the Principal was somewhat skeptical of one so small despite the applicant's marks. "Vin" came to us in Senior year and immediately set to work making friends, a task that was easy for him. He was a valuable asset to both basketball and track squads. Many a bigger man trailed him in the various dashes on the cinder path. Our tiny senior intends entering Savage Institute to study physical training. The Mount will be glad to have one of its graduates come back to tell of his experience as health and strength builder. ROBERT J. JORDAN "Bob" "Boo-Boo" Football 3, 4.

MAY JOHN R. LYONS THE second term of Sophomore year found a new member added to the class of '33, Johnny Lyons made his entrance like a "little ray of sunshine" and has been smiling ever since. To him the twenty-five credits each week came easily and at the end of the month mounting to honor heights seemed almost sim- ple. Smiling John hails from the prosperous Bronx section called Woodlawn from where he has commuted daily to his beloved Alma Mater, Mount St. Michael. But John's travels are to be extended, and along no other path than that of medicine. Good luck to you, John, and may every possible success be yours. BLESSED with a happy mixture of joviality and sin- cerity, Bud has endeared himself to his classmates, whether acting as member of the track team or at- tending to his duties as class secretary. He proved himself an ardent sportsman of the gridiron for which endeavor he received a major letter. As a trackman, "May the Miler" is a hard man to beat, a fact that our rival schools can confirm. The study of medicine will take up Bud's interest in the future. We know he will make a great doctor for anyone with his humor and patience is bound to succeed. It is with sincere regret that we come to the time when Buddy must leave us. .1 1,53 .

MEEHAN DONALD J. MEEHAN WHEN Paul leaves the Mount he will take with him memories made indelible following five years of struggle in the form of intensive study for the crown of victory, graduation. Paul, throughout the years he has spent at the Mount, has shown keen interest in science and mathematics, in both of which he has proven himself excellent as displayed by the fact that he won the Scholarship medal when a Junior. Paul has attracted the attention of his teachers by his frankness and his outspoken beliefs. He is never caught napping when an argument on any subject arisesg in fact Paul frankly admits they have often greatly aided in starting the arguments. Due to his scientific turn of mind, Paul has chosen New York University where he intends to pursue the study of chemical engineering. DONALD Meehan entered the Mount in the eighth grade of the grammar school with his twin broth- er, Paul. Since then "Don" has industriously follow- ed his course of studies with a silent but determined attitude. Although "Don" hasn't received monthly or weekly marks astoundingly high, at the same time they have never given him a failing average, all of which speaks decidedly in his favor for being steady- going rather than eccentric. And all people will agree that the former attribute is far preferable in dealing with the problems of life. "Don" hasn't definitely de- cided upon his future but he is inclined toward engin- eering and has selected New York University as his future Alma Mater. Good luck, "Don", -ag PAUL J.

It was not long before he had a multitude of friends who knew how to appreciate his good nature. Brendan took an activepart in the various school activities. In track, his distance is the eight-eighty. As one of the associate editors of the "Gold and Blue" he wrote a number of articles through which one may see his smiling personality. Dan cherishes the hope of some day becoming a law- yer. To attain his desire he has decided to go to the University of Alabama. Our good wishes will accom- pany him to the South. MTUCKU shuffled into our midst when We were en- grossed in second year work. His ingratiating manner made short work of the formalities of ac- quaintanceship and he directly became a true Moun- taineer. Not easily excited, Jim made his way with a smile, unruffled by the vicissitudes of a student's life. Last season he joined the football squad and became christened "The Tuckahoe Terror" because of his fiery attitude in scrimmage. At the beginning of second term in Senior year, Jim and Pater Went into a huddle, the outcome of which made "Tuck" a resident student -commuting was not favorable to his general health. He is Well liked and should succeed in his chosen field. He has grand ideas for a better and more artistic Rome, so he will study Architecture. ."l,l'll'lllllllllllll'llllllllll"l'''I"T'7'lw,'3ll"lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll''N' 'Till.wllllllIlllllllllllllllllllllli'lllllll""l"""l "Hl"'l'l 'lllllllllllllllllllll"llllll"lllll' JOHN H.

Since the beginning of Fresh- man year he has been of considerable help in football, baseball and track. Because of his fighting spirit and knowledge of the game, he was elected Captain of the football team for two consecutive seasons, and in '32 John was awarded a football trophv and a medal for track. During his stay at Mount St. Michael "Mac" has made many friends, and he is sure to make many more at Columbia where he intends to learn the se- crets of dentistry. We are all "pulling with you", Mac! NBOBH is one of the veterans who entered Mount St. Michael when it first opened seven years ago. Since then-a boarder in knee breeches to a serious commuter from Connecticut. The distance that "Woozey" has to travel in reaching the Mount has pre- vented his taking active part in sports, but he"?s none the less a loyal and true supporter of the Mount's teams, cheering them on to victory whenever he can do so. He is possessed of a pleasing and attractive personality that makes him an enjoyable companion. One has but to talk to him to like him. One with such a disposition and character is bound to be successful in life. JOHN H. MCCAFFREY isMac1s Tmclf 1, 2, 3, 45 Base'- lmll 2, 3. 45 Football 1, 2, 3, 43 Class Vice' President 2, 3.

In him we have an orator of parts, for upon the introduction of any debatable topic, Bob will launch forth into a spirited oration that always makes an impression. One of Bob's difficulties has been to reach school before 8:45 a. m. Apparently, the cream colored limousine does not consistently run up to form: or is it that "Mac's sprightliness in breaking away from the arms of Morpheus left something to be desired? He has a slight affliction, called "Sea Fever". Therefore, he will study at a Nautical School after he leaves us. Good luck, Macy don't forget the water-wings! TWO years ago, Jack registered as a Junior, and im- mediately became acclimated. He has since play- ed an important role in both studies and athletics. Generally, he ranks among the first five of his class. On the basketball court he held a regular guard posi- tion, and the manner in which he played about first base on the diamond Won the admiration of many. Rumor has it that the fair spectator Who generally sat near first during the baseball season, came for the sole reason of admiring her hero who disported him- self at first. As Editor-in-Chief of the "Gold and Blue", Jack made many poetic contributions that won flattering comments from neighboring schools.

He came to us in second year, and upon seeing what a splendid school he was to attend, decided to conquer the hearts of those in it. In this he was successful, for almost immediately he won the friendship of the whole stu- dent body. As President of the Junior and Senior classes he merited unstinted praise. On the football team he was a fair, clever and aggressive player. He was pivot-man of the basketball team and one of its highest scorers. Add to this his characteristic quali- ties of amiability and good fellowship and you will have a fair idea of the reason for his popularity. Tom will continue his studies at Columbia University to- wards a medical degree. NDICK" graduated from our grammar school and sought to acquire his high school education else- where, but it was not long before he was back at the Mount-there was no place like it, after all. Quiet in demeanor, he is possessed of a likable personality that easily attracts friends to him. He is greatly interest- ed in his father's business, contracting engineer, and we are told that Francis is of considerable help after school hours. Due to the fact that his services at home were usually needed immediately after school, Dick had no occasion to take part in extra-curricular activities. Of course, he is bent on following in his father's footsteps, so Francis will take up an engin- eering course at Manhattan. THOMAS J. O'BYRNE NT0mY! Hobie!!

His kindly smile and general good nature have won him many friends during his four years' stay at the Mount. He claims to be the only senior who takes a cold shower every morning-how does he get that way? Science always came easily to him so that he acquired considerable knowledge in this line of study. In a few years when you, read of the exploits of General R. O'Connor, do not be surprised, for Rod intends to follow in the foot- steps of his brother and be the Mount's second repre- sentative at West Point--his brother, George, gradu- ate of '31, is now in Sophomore year of the U. S. Army institution. NIPJADDYH of the carrot locks crashed into our com- pany in second year. He readily endeared him- self to his classmates and teachers and immediately showed himself to be a good sport. His ability and earnest effort in football won for him the title of cap- tain in Senior year. He was also member of the base- ball squad. A warm, generous heart, a calm and hap- py disposition characterize Pat. His Irish wit per- meates the classroom with an air of jollity and his presence will surely be missed by the professors. All is not fun in Pat, however. He can be serious when business calls for that disposition. His future career will undoubtedly be a successful one. Best o' luck, Pat!

Pmusi GEORGE E. QUINN iIVINN1E" entered the Mount after his younger brother had discovered and explored itg evident- ly, he was taking no chances. At first he was a resi- dent studentg but that kept him away from home too much, so it was decided best for him to board at home. He did not enter the field of sports because of the fact that soccer and swimming, his favorite activities, are not included in the school athletic games. As "Vin- nie" is rather conservative, he made few friends. However, those favored by his friendship will readily testify to his sincerity and generosity. "Enzo" ex- pects to study medicine. His plans for the future are not definite yet, but it is more than probable that he will do his further studying in sunny Italy. GEORGE is, to those intimately acquainted with him, a right fine chap and agreeable companion. Of a quiet demeanor, he may give a stranger an impression that is somewhat misleading, one of shyness and tim- idity. Such are not, however, his dominant charac- teristics. His sly puns and "wisecracks", not always appreciated by the teachers, caused much amusement in the classroom. He is much more wide awake than he appears at first sight. Although not an athlete himself, he was always a firm and constant supporter of the Mount's various teams. It is not sure whether or not George will continue his studies after gradua- tion. We wish him good luck in his future undertak- 2 ings. VINCENT E. PARISI "Vinnie" "Enzo" GEORGE E.

At first little was noticed re- markable in him 3 but it was not long before his oblig- ing manner and kindly disposition captivated us en- tirely. He distinguished himself in outdoor activities as well as in class. Letters for Football, Baseball and Track give evidence of his true sportsmanship. In Senior year, Joe was elected Prefect of the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin. This fact gives an accurate estimate of his frank and unblemished character. Electrical engineering is the course which he will take at an upstate college. Rensselaer's gain is the Mount's loss. Here's wishing good luck to a true Mountaineer. AT THE outset of his High School career, a tall, thin boy with light wavy hair and happy grin directed his steps towards the Mount as his future Alma Ma- ter. lt took but a short while for this quiet lad to find a place in the hearts of his classmates. Tom has had his hard knocks and has taken them with a smile. His wit and humor gave the readers of the "Gold and Blue" many hearty laughs by keeping the joke column well stacked with funny stories and quips. Although Tom was not a star athlete he showed his willingness to help by holding down places on the J. V. Football and Basketball teams. As yet "Camel" has not chosen his vocation, but wherever he may go we wish him success and happiness. 4.-.,,v-,I4 1liI!ll'IHIIIllllllllllllllllllllllllllHHHHHllllllllIllllllllllIIIIIIIl!IllHllllllllllllilllllllllIIIllIIIIIIIIIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllil1llllllllllIIIIlIIIIllllIIIllllllillllllillllllllllllllllllllUllllllHHEllllllllllllllllllllllll ARTHUR T.

During English, however, he enjoys having verbal jousts with the teacher and his classmates. On the athletic field, Arty has distinguished himself as a track man of worth. Nevertheless, his favorite sport is golf. On Monday morning, in the study hall, the boys are given a treat with "AtRowe's" vivid descrip- tion of how he regularly beats the pater on the roll- ing green. He is going to Dartmouth where he ex- pects to pick up the fine points of the medical pro- fession. NO STUDENT at the Mount is deserving of more praise for success in scholarship than Nestor Sabi. On his arrival from Cuba in '31, he entered second year while we began Junior work. Due to his splendid achievements during that year, he was allowed to start fourth year work last September and he now leads both sections of the Senior class in weekly and monthly reports. One must not suppose that Nestor is continually at his books, he also found time to take part in baseball and track events. He stands as an example of real scholarship and is respected as such.

Active in student activities, he was a valuable asset to the school. Basketball and Baseball claimed his services. Though not a star, he gave the best that was in him: and who could ask for more. It is rumored that Char- lie is an accomplished hockey player and belongs to a well-known Bronx junior sextet. The name "Two- point" he acquired on the Basketball court because of his usual modest score. He intends to study Medicine and will do his preliminary work at Columbia. MSULLYH, so christened by one of his teachers, ap- peared in our classes at the beginning of Junior year. Soon after his arrival here, he formed an ex- clusive friendship with one of the Meehan twins. Not until Senior year was another, one of the Zock twins this time, accepted into the close friendship team. We should not have you believe, however, that "J, P." was distant with his other classmates. The two mentioned above were special friends. He knew how to make himself pleasant to all others.

It really is a very good rep- resentation of our own "Bob", His cheerful grin and witty sayings brightened up many rainy-day school periods-and who could be cross with the "Colonel"! He is quite a sport and excells in baseball. He also participated in football and track. At shortstop po- sition he knows what to do with the balls that come his way, much to the regret of opposing batters. Bob is a good example of the ready concurrence of studies and athletics. Every month his name graces the Honor Roll. Since his coming, four years ago, he has made many friends and his memory will live long in the hearts of his classmates. HERE is a young man who literally grew with the Mount, for "Jim" was one of the first boys regis- tered in this school. With his twin brother, "Tony" Cgraduated in '32J, he must be rated among the most punctual and faithful students in Mount St. Michael. Through persistent effort he has won a place on the track team every year. As a scholar, Jim personifies the happy mediumg while not at the head of his class, he always kept a safe distance from the fatal mark. He earned the name "Bicycle Jim" because of his con- tinual adherence to that mode of travel in going to and from school. If things turn out the way they should, Jim will enter Annapolis next Fall.

Small in numbers, but big in ambitions, we set to work with the determination that this, our last year in Grammar School, would be a successful and happy one. We are glad to say that we have realized most of our dreams. Two brilliant recruits were shortly added to the class. Elmer Nistal enrolled, and a few days later Edward Power joined us. Both boys soon learned the "lay of the land", and together with the rest of the group worked on towards the mid-year examinations. In February, the Regents were bravely faced and easily conquered. Vincent DeRosa obtained the highest average in these examinations with George Grant a close second. It is because of our success in the February tests that we see June arrive with calm and confidence. What was achieved in February should be duplicated in June. Though small in stature, we have had some experience in sports. Football held our attention in the Fall, and when, not watching the Var- sity go through their paces, we organized and played interclass games. No accidents, even minor ones, marred the joy and thrill of those contests. During the winter months we occupied ourselves with basketball, and now our interest is taken up with baseball, the National Sport. Thanks to our prefect, Brother Albert, we have a level and smooth diamond whereon we are learning the essentials of the game. Our first tilt of the season was with Iona and we reaped an overwhelming victory, 16-4. No doubt, some of us will make the Varsity in the near future. J. Harvey, J. O'Neil and W. Earley seem to be the most promising among us. In the Mission field, we must admit We have not been so very suc- cessful. We rather blame the depression than admit selfishness on our part. Edward Kramer easily tops the list of generous contributors to the worthy cause. Henry Weimer also deserves honorable mention. Congratulations to our medalists! William J.

The "Gold and lilmf' is the monthly literary publication of Mount St. Michael. It is edited and published by a self-perpetuating board of student editors. This magazine is typical of the literary talent in the High School. Its chief aim is to inculcate a literary spirit in the students, which will be a help to them in future life. It gives them the necessary opportunity to prove their talent and ambition. The secondary purpose of the "Gold and Blue" is to build up an inti- mate connection between the boys, the parents of the boys and friends of the school. The events taking place at school are brought, to the parents through the medium of this monthly publication. It enables the parents to keep in touch with the activities of their boy. Every phase of activity carried on in the school is ably covered in the different departments. It is generally felt that as year succeeds year, the "Gold and Blue" makes forward steps toward a closer realization of the purpose of its existence. May those who follow in our places continue to strive, as we have done, to uphold the standard set by their predecessors. Page sixty-tlzrcc MOUNTAINEER 4 Page sixty-four MOUNTAIN EER SEVENTH ANNUAL GTMNASGIIG EXHIIZJIIGIIGDN The afternoon of Sunday, May 14th, threatened rain. Nevertheless, the school campus was occupied to its fullest seating capacity by -a mul- titude of proud parents and eager friends. The school banner of gold and navy blue fluttered high above the spectators as if in justified pride of the sons of Mount St. Michael. Mr. James Jordan, athletic coach and gym instructor, should well be applauded for the excellent display made by the boys under his direction. Promptly at two-thirty, the music of the Grand March began. Simultane- ously, a long column of boys, four abreast, made a soldierly entrance upon the field. Dressed in their gray uniforms neatly trimmed with the school emblem and stripes, the students gave a performance of striking mechani- cal perfection and rhythmic beauty. Intricate apparatus drills and cal- isthenics followed in rapid flawless order. The program was concluded with a relay race which was won by the Senior class. I L As a happy climax, Brother Principal announced that the following day would be a holiday for the entire school, as a reward for diligent prac- tice during the year that resulted in such a splendid gymnastic exhibition.

It is by far the largest organization in our school. Though founded only last year, it has an actual enrollment of over seventy members, i. e. half of the high school student body. The religious activities of the sodality are under the direction of Brother Vincent Dominic aided by two Prefects chosen by the Sodalists. Joseph Reddy and John Drew were the Prefects this year. Every Thursday morning the Sodalists receive an instruction given by Brother Moderator. In the afternoon confessions are heard and all the members are expected to assist at Holy Mass in the school Chapel on Friday morning. Besides developing in the hearts of its' members a stronger devotion to the Blessed Virgin, the Sodality has done a great deal to augment the number of frequent communicants among our student body. The Sodalists in Senior year take this opportunity to thank Brother Vincent Dominic and Rev. J. Corbett, S.J. for their untiring efforts to- wards our spiritual betterment. We sincerely trust that the Sodality will continue to grow under their supervision and direction, and that the un- der-classmen will give their entire cooperation to such a noble organiza- tion.

We won three games, lost three, and tied oneg but of the three games lost, two were to schools giving postgraduate work, so our losing did not carry with it the sting that it might have otherwise. This year, the third of Mountaineer football, Mr. James Jordan of Lawrence, Mass., became coach and he deserves credit for the fast and smooth-working team that wore the gold and blue colors on the gridiron during the past season. In the backfield, "Bill" Christopher directed the eleven and called the plays from his quarterback position. His general- ship was of the highest order. Frank Oveis, admirable interference for the ball-carrier, played at left halfback. The fast and shifty "Red" Gra- ham held down the right halfback position. Our iron man, Pat Byrne, punted, passed and plunged from his fullback berth. This Pat was a tough customer to stop. He held high scoring honors for the season with forty- eight points to his credit. Our backfield combination was excellently bal- anced and played a fast and delusive game. Johnson, as first string sub- stitute, played like a regular. Joe Buchanan, captain-elect for next year, and "Buddy" May also did commendable work during the season. Captain O'Rourke played center throughout the year. With his faultless passing, fighting spirit and ability at backing up the line, he was one of the mainstays of the team. Flanking him on either side were "Andy" McDermott and McCaffrey. These huskies allowed very few gains through tackle. The guards were Cronin and Deneen, with Hen- 116SS8y and Goldmann as substitutes. Tom O'Byrne and Johnny Hadlow were the regular ends. Tom, by his knack of snaring long passes, proved to be a great asset to the team, while Johnny's fleetness of foot served him in good stead at this position. In the matter of scoring, 107 points were chalked up by our oppon- ents while we accumulated 1015 but 82 of the opponents' points were scored by two schools that were much- too strong for us. The first game was played in Newark, N. J., with St. Benedict's Prep. The contest was rather one-sided, and we succeeded in tallying once while our opponents rolled up 47 points. Troise- and Fishbein did most of the scoring for St. Benedict's. Pat Byrne's line plunge, after a beautiful run by Christopher, accounted for the Mountaineer's lone tally. The Gold and Blue garnered easy victories in the next two games. All Hallows, last year's Catholic High School City Champions, were de- feated to the tune of 31-O. In a rough and tumble game, with our boys showing tremendous power, St. Joseph's eleven were overcome by the decisive score of 38-0. Pat Byrne scored five touchdowns in this en- counter.

Graham, F. Oveis. In the next game, the best ever played on the school gridiron, the Mountaineers avenged last year's defeat at the hands of Pelham H. S., by subduing the "Pelicans" 12-6. Byrne and O'Byrne scored touchdowns, the latter on a thirty-yard pass from "Chris" in the last quarter. Making their bow in Brooklyn, the Mount eleven engaged in a gruell- ing contest with the St. John's warriors. The two teams were evenly matched, as the 0-0 score indicates. The second defeat of the season came at the hands of a fighting Ford- ham team and as a result of over confidence on the part of the Mountain- eers. After scoring early in the first period, the Mount boys played in- different ball and allowed the Prepsters to roll up 19 points. The final score was 19-14. The last game was played at Oakdale with the powerful LaSalle Mili- tary Academy eleven. A heavy rain fell during the whole contest. Though our plays were ineffective, the cadets amassed 35 points and held us scoreless. Graduation will work havoc with the 1932 lineup. Eight members of the first team together with an equal number of substitutes will gradu- ate in June. Trombetta, Fajen, Buchanan, Oveis, Fracchia, Deneen and McDermott will form the nucleus of next year's eleven. There is little reason to be pessimistic, however, for it is more than likely that Coach Jordan will be able to develop a strong team with the material on hand.

Playing under many handicaps the team won eleven contests while losing seven. Despite the fact that it was a completely new team, playing under a new coach and new system, the Gold and Blue colors have flown in victory during most of the season-a tribute to Mr. Jordan's ability to get results. The first game of the season, against the Alumni, proved to be a thriller. Trailing 17-11 at half time the Varsity fought its way up to tie the game at the final whistle. In an exciting overtime period the Alumni won out 26-25. In the second game, Manhattan Prep., more experienced and having the advantage of a large court, defeated the Varsity 25-10. But the next game saw Cathedral Prep. trounced 26-11 by a fast passing attack on the part of the Gold and Blue quintet. De La Salle was the next victim to fall before the Mount. It required an overtime period to decide the fray but the fighting spirit of the Moun- taineers prevailed and victory was ours 24-22. McBurney then was easily conquered 31-21. In a rough and hard fought contest the Saints were defeated by Iona 15-13. A jinx seemed to be following the team forlin the next encounter we were again defeated, this time by All Hallows. The score was 13-12. The game with Loyola was a runaway for us. We won handily by the score of 31-7. Fordham Prep was met next and we again tasted de- feat 18-13. In our second match with Iona we evened up matters by win- ning 26-22. Another victory was added to our string when we downed Regis 23-21 in a close battle. The next victim was De La Salle. In a rather close encounter the Mount was victorious. The final score was 27-24. The next two games were sad experiences indeed. Manhattan trounced the wearers of the Gold and Blue"27-16 and Tolentine eked out a 27-23 victory. At this point the Mountaineer five determined to bring home the ba- con in the remaining games and they finished the season with a winning streak of the last four games. Loyola was downed 27-19. All Hallows was on the short end of a 24-10 score. Tuckahoe, a strong Westchester County team, was defeated in a hard fought battle 26-21. With the final game of the season the Saints reached the peak of their conquests by defeating St. Nicholas of Tolentine 22-20. A more tense and exciting game could hardly be imagined. Victory, here, was sweet indeed. The season's totals give 374 points to the Mountaineers and 324 to the opponents. "Pat" Byrne was high scorer with 137 points to his credit. It was "Pat's" scoring ability which gained many a victory for the Gold and Blue. The center of the team, both in position and strength, was Tom 0'Byrne. He appears to have developed over night into one of the finest centers in basketball. His knack of scoring from under the basket held his opponent spellbound. "O'Bie's" loss through graduation will be hard to replace. Page eighty-four MOUNTAINEER Loft to right-H. DeBruyn, Assistant Managerg James F. Jordan, Coach, V. Kelly E. Ernano, F. Gibbons, J.

The position of right guard was held by John Noonan. John is a cle- ver man on the defensive and it was due largely to his guarding that the opposing fives failed to score. Noonan starred at breaking up the oppo- sition's attack and although he himself did not score often his wonderful floor work won the acclaim of all. The other guard position was held by "Deacon" Drew. His perform- ance was consistent and effective. Drew was also endowed with a won- derful eye for shooting baskets and in this department of the game he helped the team no little. "Deacon" is another vasity man who developed overnight. Johnny Hadlow is one of the veterans held over from last year's team. Johnny, playing the game, is all fight. He never' stops trying until the final whistle is blown. "Chubby" Trombetta played forward on the varsity for the last half of the season. He fought his way up from the Jayvees to hold down a varsity berth. He fulfilled Coach Jordan's assignment and justified the trust put in him. John Dooley played forward on the varsity for the first half of the season. He was a valuable floor man and it was due to unforseen circum- stances that he could not finish the season. Coach Jordan also had confidence in his reserves: Kelly, Gibbons, Shannon and Ernano. Although nine of the eleven men on the varsity squad will be lost through graduation, there is no need to fear for next year's team as there is some very good material in the J . V. ranks.

Playing a fifteen game schedule, the second squad won twelve and were defeated in three. Among the outstanding games were those with La Salle, which required three overtime periods before the Mount finally won, and Fordham, All Hallows and St. Ann's. "Tommy" Lynch, despite his small stature, proved to be a constant menace to the opponent teams. Tommy's main asset is an excellent eye for shooting baskets. P - Tom Rice held the center position and showed himself to be a worthy choice for the post. Many times his ability to get the tap enabled his teammates to Work their play in fine style. Johnny McHugh showed a marked ability for procuring points at the time when they were most needed. Throughout the entire season he was one of the team's high scorers. The guard positions were held by two freshmen, Frank Oveis and "Nick" Romano. The reason for low scores on the opponent's side can be traced to the fine guarding of Frank and Nick. Harlin, Stachnik and Fracchia also saw service in Jayvee events. It is no rash prediction that Coach Jordan may look forward to a bright future with such material as this.

Eight were Catholic League games and our five victories give us a percentage of .625 with a rank of third. The remain- ing games may, of course, Work havoc with present percentages and league standings. We made an auspicious bow in League baseball by nosing out St. Ann's in our first game of the season, 1-0. The game had to go one extra inning to decide the contest. Two straight it was, when we shaded All Hallows 5-4 in another league game. A two run rally in the last inning won for the Gold and Blue. Continuing to play errorless ball, our boys took over DeLaSalle in a close contest by the score of 3-1. Dooley of the Mount gave a fine ex- hibition of cool pitching. Both teams collected four hits, but whereas ours were bunched, DeLaSalle's were well scattered. Our winning streak was broken by Manhattan in our fourth League contest. McGreevey, Manhattan twirler, limited us to two doubles, both made by "Tony" Johnson, and we were beaten 5-1. On May 4th we traveled to New Rochelle to play the strong Iona team. Here, we were handed a first class trouncing. This game was not a League affair and it offered us an opportunity of discovering some hid- den pitching talent in Eddie Ernano, our regular shortstop. The final score was 16-4. Fordham, leaders of the League, were our next opponents. Ernano held them scorless for five innings, but a five run rally gave them the game, 5-2. The return game with St. Ann's was postponed indefinitely. It will probably be played at the end of the season. Our second game with Fordham turned out to be a victory for us. The game had to be called in the sixth inning because of rain. At the time we led 2-0. All Hallows next played their return game on our dia- mond. The game was spirited and exciting. Trailing by one run in the last inning, our boys rallied sufficiently to score twice, thereby winning the game. J. Pagano, making his first appearance of the season, did some very good work on the mound for the winners. On May 23rd We staged our second encounter with Manhattan on Jas- per Field. After three hours of ragged baseball that ran nine innings, we emerged losers, 10-9. By dropping this, game, we practically threw away our last chance of leading the League. At the start of the season, the outlook for a fielding team was rather promising, but we were sadly in need of pitchers. One on whom we re- lied, J. Pagano, was stricken with acute appendicitis and had to be operat- ed. This limited our pitching staff to John Dooley, veteran of last year, Page eighty-eight MUUNTAINEER Page eighty-nine MOUNTAINEER and "Nick" Romano, a freshman. Later on, however, another pitcher was discovered in Eddie Ernano who is also an excellent shortstop. On May 19th our pitching staff became complete when Pagano was permitted to "toss them around". In the outfield the work is shared by E. Burke, A. Johnson and J. McCaffrey. Burke plays in left, and though only a Junior, is a veteran from last year's team. His arm is something to be respected, and when he camps under a fly, it is a sure out. Johnson, at center, is also a vet- eran, and was shifted from left to his present position at the beginning of the season. He is lead-off man and has one of the highest batting aver- ages of the team. He has the best arm in the outfield, a fact that was demonstrated repeatedly when men tried to steal home after a fly into "Tony's" territory. Our right fielder is J. McCaffrey. "Mac" is the heavi- est man on the team, and though slow on the bases does very commendable work in the field. He wields the bat with telling effect on the offerings of opponent pitchers, and has the second best batting average of the team. The infield consists of H. Deneen at third, E. Ernano at short, W. Christopher at second, and J. Noonan at first. Harry is no slouch at the "hot corner". He plays hard and will make a very good infielder as he has still two years of high school baseball before him. He has had little luck at bat, but that will be remedied before long, for Harry is always ready to learn and "takes his baseball seriously". Eddie Ernano is a classy little player. At short, a ball has scant chance of getting by him. He seems to scoop them up with hardly an ef- fort. When a pitcher was needed, Eddie stepped in the box and astounded the critics who had doubted his ability. At bat he gives a good account of himself, and though he seldom hits very far, he rarely is called out by the three-strike route. W. Christopher is at second. A seasoned football player, Bill, is not easily frightened by a small, skipping baseball. The hardest hit ball, if batted in "Chris' " direction, will have to fight it out with our second baseman before bounding freely to the outfieldg and very few indeed know how to get by Chris. Verily, were the swiftest grounder to carom off "Bill's" chin, we have no doubt that he would be planted in the pathway of the next one, so earnest a player is he. The initial sack is covered by J. Noonan. He is a fast player and generally spears them in his one-handed fashion. His continual chatter encourages our pitcher, worries the opposing twirler, and sometimes even annoys the umpire. "Pat" Byrne is our slugging catcher. He has hit safely ten times out of his last fourteen trips to the plate. Behind the plate, he knows how to encourage the wavering pitcher, and spreads confidence by his spirited talk and active play. A valuable player is this "Pat"!

His task was a heavy one at the beginning of the season, and he did very good work in winning the first three games. Later, an injury to his back kept him from active play for a week or so. When not pitch- ing, John generally fills an infield position. "Nick" Romano and J. Pagano also saw service in the pitcher's box. We expect much from "Nick" who is only a freshman and is coming right along. Pagano, with his pitching arm and batting eye is an asset of im- portance to the team. He is in Sophomore year. Space does not allow us to introduce the other players. Though a number of regulars will graduate in June, there is sufficient material to cause us to feel optimistic about the 1934 prospects.

This call was answered enthusiastically by upper classmen, but unfortunately, few of them could qualify for the midget and junior divi- sions of the team. Consequently, while the senior division had a wealth of material, the junior and midget sections were noticeably lacking of it. When this fact was made clear to younger members of the student body, they too responded generously and the track squad then began to get un- der way in true Mt. St. Michael fashion, and in spite of the fact that they were late in getting started, the tracksters have made wonderful progress. The first meet of the season, scheduled for May 6th with Bronxville, was called off due to rain. This fact was both unfortunate and fortunate for the team because, while it postponed real competition, it gave them a little longer to round into shape. On May 15th the Saints had a chance to match paces with Iona. The showing they made, considering the amount of practice they had had, was surprising. In the meet we garnered three first places-Graham in the Senior 440, Zock in the Senior high jump and Stachnik in the Junior shot- put. There were also numerous second and third places taken by our boys. Several of them placed in two or more events. Among them are Christopher, who placed second in the Senior shot-put and third in the 220-yard dash, McGinn, who was first and third in the Junior 300-yard and 100-yard dashes respectively, and a member of the relay team which placed third, Kelly, who was second in both the Junior 220 and shot-put, McHugh, who placed second in both the Junior high jump aid broad jumpg Lyons, who was third in the Junior broad jump and third in the shot-put, While O'Neil, also a Junior, was second in the 100-yard and third in the 220-yard dashes. But in spite of the boys' fine showing, the Iona aggre- gation Was a bit too strong for us and walked off with the meet. The next taste of competition that the team had Was with Regis on our track which is the largest school track in the city, being a little more than a third of a mile in length. Regis brought down a strong squad and the Mount showed that it is worthy of good competition. "Red" Graham again took first place in the 440, running a sterling race, while Johnny Dooley was first in the broad jump, and Christopher and McCaffrey split first place in the shot-put. For the Juniors, tO'Neil took first place in the 100-yard and 220-yard dashes, and Lyons placed first in the broad jump and third in the shot-put. Schier was the only one of the midgets to place, netting two points. It was the midget section of the team that lost the Regis meet for us due principally to lack of material in that division.

The team bids fair to give a good account of itself in the remaining contests if the boys con- tinue to improve as they have been doing lately. The midget department received some reinforcements and with a little practice should come up to the strength of the other divisions of the team. When they do so, it will be no ,easy task to conquer the Gold and Blue trackmen. Now, let us devote a little space to some of the outstanding athletes of the cinder path and field events. As a sprinter, "Red" Graham's distinctive performances in the 440 set him in a class by himself. A sure winner in this event, "Red" looks forward to a smashing victory in the C. H. S. A. A. meet which is sched- uled for May 30th. Kelly is also a sure point winner as is O'Neil. The latter is only in the eighth grade and, with proper practice and training, will turn in some fine records before he gets through high school. Gib- bons, too, is a sprinter on whom we can always depend for a few points. Sabi is our half miler of speed, but to show his versatility, he also competes in dashes and the high jump and is no set-up in, either case. In the mile run we have Murphy and O'Connor, both of whom have shown improvement since the season started and are a threat to the distance run- ners. While Murphy is the better of the two Cand he is only a Sopho- morej, O'Connor is constantly pressing him for supremacy in that field. McCaffrey and Christopher, along with Pat Byrne, are the boys who throw the shot aboutg and if anyone cares to question their ability, we di- rect him to our rivals. Christopher is also a sprinter of note. In the other field events we have Dooley, good in the broad jump and an able high jumper. Also clearing the high bar are Drew and Zock, both of whom continually fight it out for first place. Hadlow sprints the 440 and occasionally beats Dooley in the broad jump. It is hardly possible for us to mention here the prowess of every member of the track squad, but we are proud to say that the team has been a credit to the school and is expected to carry on the traditions of the Mount.

From the twenty-five or so boys who joined the tennis squad, seven were chosen to represent Mount St. Michael in interscholas- tic competition. The greater part of last year's team was lost to the school through graduation, so we were faced with the task of developing a winning combination with raw material. "Red" Graham, a veteran of last year's team, plays number one man in the singles and occasionally completes a doubles combination when a point is necessary. "J im" Cronin, our second and last veteran, has been picked to play number two in the singles,matches. He plays a very consistent and ex- cellent game. For number three in the singles, Frank Gibbons has been chosen. He alternates with little "Tommy" Lynch in opposing the third best man of the rival team. Both can be relied upon to give a good account of themselves. In the doubles series, Graham generally is paired with Earl Shana- han, while Tom Lynch, James Zock and Frank Hoffman form the ma- terial from which the other team is chosen. Our first tennis match was with Fordham Prep. A tough tussle was expected and our boys proved their mettle. Graham was matched with Fox of the Prep and won in two straight sets. Cronin and Gibbons were both defeated in the other two singles matches. With the score 2-1 against us, the doubles were begun. Graham and Shanahan won over Fox and Groh, and Gibbons and Cronin defeated Burke and Smith, there- by winning the contest 3-2. In our next encounter we met the experienced and clever Riverdale team. Graham was overcome, but only after three close and long drawn out sets. Cronin and Gibbons played very good games but bowed to su- perior racquet work. In the doubles, Graham was paired with Lynch, and Cronin with Gibbons. Again, we had to taste of defeat. This gave River- dale a clean sweep of the match. We still have a few matches to play. It is to be hoped that our boys will be able to hold their own against some of the strong teams we have yet to meet.
