'Our modern discovery of the Middle Ages,
after thelong period ofintervening darkness that
obscured them, wasof necessity agradual process.
To begin with, there were landmarks that could
never bewholly lost to sight, however dimly they
might be limned for the men of that day on the
dull grayband of theirhorizon line--promontories
and mountaintops that stood out stark and bold,
as undeniable realities which deluge and earth-
quake never could obliterate.'
Thus metaphorically did Father Husslein,
S.J. refer to such men as Dante, Aquinas,Francis
of Assisi, and farther away in the remote dis-
tance, Benedict, Gregory the Great, Charlemagne,
Alfred the Great, and a host of others whom man-
kind would never forget.
Our school bears the name of such alandmark
and it isbut natural that wethink of Mont-Saint-
Michel when weread that 'as the darkness lifted
and the mist withdrew, the last wraithsdrifted
and hung about the graceful Gothic spires, that
rose like dreams of beauty against the blue of
the enduring skies.'

Set like a sentinel In the sea at the pomt where Normandy
and Brittany, two of the lovellest provlnces of France meet, Mont
Saint Michel, unlque marvel of architectural beauty, stands on Its rock
of granite in the middle of an immense bay
On an abrupt and steep pedestal are the abbey churches steeple, clolster and
fortress crypts and prisons built one above the other mdescnbably lntermlngled
and yet In thelr ensemble as in their detail a wonder of harmony a poem In stone
Only an ardent faith could have Inspired the creative genius of the artisans of Mont
Samt Michel The hard stone has been hewn with vigour and chlselled with delicacy until
the leaves of granite decorating lt seem trembling with life
This medieval marvel of ortand religious mystlclsm has been sung with equal enthusiasm by the
troubadours of the eleventh century and by writers of our epoch All agree that it is the highest
expression of the art of the Middle Ages In Western Europe
lt IS not possible to fund a fmer evocatuon of the past than this wonderful abbey on its Island,
reached by way of three fortified gateways, a barbtcan and a steep stairway In the interior
powerful and harmonious in design, the Guard Room at once fills the visitor with admiration,
By the Grand Degre monumental staircase, the austere bulldmgs ofthe abbey are reached,
crowned by the Sault Gaultier terrace, from which the spectator looks down over a vast and
imposing panorama of land and sea Above the abbey ls the church, another pure gewel upon
which patient monks lavlshed their art from the eleventh to the fifteenth century The ' lace work
staircase the dormitory of the monks, the clolster wrth its double row af graceful columns,
Romanesque crypts chapels, halls cellars and sentry walks are so many elements which bring
back out of the past the daily life of the monastery fortress and go to prove how well deserved
is its title of the Marvel of the West
Nowhere else rs the poetry ofthe sea so closely allied to the poetry of stone, the waters forming
a wonderful setting for this medieval lewel Here the architecture IS ln appropriate scale with
the grandeur ofthe sea, a grand symphony nn stone with the contrast of moving water and
motionless sculptured plllar and buttress
Mont Samt Michel on its Island IS Indeed the unique marvel of architecture one which never disap
points the tourists who come from every part of the world to admlre this .ewel floating like a ship on
the ocean tapering to a pomt with its splre on which a statue of Samt Michael flashes in the sun
enchanting illustration of the balanced grace of French art of the thirteenth century.

When the I947 outdoor-track season commenced,
, the attention of track enthusiasts throughout the metro-
politan area was ocused on those "upstarts" rom the
, i 1 I , -
ever, even the most obstinate had to recognize Mount

C if: P
After defeatung Cardunal Hayes by some 42 pounts
un the Bronx Manhattan Westchester Charrfpuonshups
Coach Bull Ward set hus sughts on the Pruvate School s
ute Once more old man upset was present as e
Mount carrued off the vuctor s share of 715 pounts to
for the boys from Brook yn and uust to ma e
sure our name stayed un the program, the 880 yd
relay team of Avery, Caun, Sweeney and McGunley
negotuated the dustance un record tume
A month later, un June, Randall s Island was the
scene of a hard fought battle between Loughlun and
the Mount As usual our overwhelmung strength un the
held events decuded the outcome Capt Peter Frasca
won the Shot put and establushed a new record un the
duscus, whule Steve Kennedy tossed the Javelun 156
fee 7 unches for another record Ken McDowell
stayed un the more than hve club wuth 7 pounts for
oruty un the hugh Jump
After the last event had been completed and the
score tabulated four pounts separated the Mount from
theur closest ruval
P r ll The 1948 Season
Wuth theur team broken up by the loss of many
of last year's outstandung performers, thus year's Mount
aggregatuon suffered greatly by lack of numbers Never
theless, a few outstandung performances by some of the
boys showed that although the quantuty was mussung,
the qualuty was ever more pronounced than un prevuous
One week later at was McGunley who agaun broke
out front at the start of the lC4A unvutatuon 1280
re ay rlue aun an rt Ma ue o p a
spectable dustance between the Mount and the second
place team, and anchorman Bob Brawn reeled off
one of hus bet undoor performances, as the Mountues
establushed theur second record un as many weeks
The furst Annual Bronx Manhattan Westchester un
door meet, say the Mount hnush a poor second Charlue
Caun un the fifty, and Bob Brawn un the Quarter, were
the only two Mount wunners
We dropped down a notch un the C H S A A Cham
puonshups as Loughlun regauned theur tutle The mule
relay of Buanco Lambuase, Joos, and Mattuello sup
plued the Mount wuth uts only vuctory of the afternoon
The unutual track meet of the outdoor season saw
a Mount foursome of Tom McGunley Charlue Caun
Art Mattuello and Ken McDowell wun the Eastern
lnterscholastuc 880 yd relay champuonshup as well as
a second place un the 440 yd relay
The Fufty Fourth Annual Penn Relay Carnuval was
the scene of the fastest one mule relay ever run by a
team representung Mount Saunt Muchael
A swuft Mount foursome composed of Bob Brawn,
Art Mattuello Ken McDowell, and Tom MsGunley was
clocked un a brulluant 3 289 whuch eclupsed the per
formances of better than 200 other class relay teams
After a few prelumanary meets fauled to produce
any spectacular team runnung un the relay eve ts
ro her Sumeon played hus ace un the Natuonal
lnterscholastuc Indoor Champuonshups Tom McGunley,
Charlue Caun, Bob Brawn, and Ken McDowell showed
theur heels to teams from all over the country, as
exed the sux lap re y tutle estab us ung a
new Natuonal Hugh School record of 1451
Judgung by past performances, the Mountues should
complete the 1948 curcuut un grand style and as for
next season Brother Sumeon wull have such capable
Performers as Art Mattuello only a sophomore, but
nevertheless a dangerous sprunter and quarter mule,
Ralph Lambuase and Ralph Buanco whose senuor year
should see them at the top of local competutuon I
the dustance department, Brother wull count on Jum
Enrught and Leo Forrest both sophomores, to show
theur heels to even the most hughly touted competutors
Add to these a host of other talented under class
men and even the least optumustuc of us can vusualuze

After decisive defeats at the hands of La Salle 472-393
and Cardinal Hayes 1671-375, some might have grown a little
discouraged at the outlook. However, because of the un-
tiring efforts of our coach, the boys began to hit their pace.
Each game was bitter and hard-fought, with only a basket
or two the difference. ln return engagements with the same
teams, the Mounties showed the results of their good coach-
ing and undying spirit. ln itself, that is a hne tribute to
Carlson, returning to the wars after some hard luck
last year, proved as capable under the basket as any center
we have seen this year. lt was always a treat to watch
rival coaches send their boys in with orders to get the
big boy out on fouls. Dan Mitchell, with his inimitable
corner shot, and Terry McCabe, with his long set! were
constant threats to any type of defense. Dominic and
Angelo Mazzei, playing up front in the zone defense,
baflied the playmakers continually and offset many a scoring
opportunity. Jimmy Mitchell and Moose McKenna were twc
very reliable ball-handlers throughout the campaign.
The junior varsity gave promise, both in the regular
season and in the tournament, of happy days for the Mount
rooters. The boys compiled a regular season record of
14 wins and 5 losses. Kelly, Hughes, Forbes, Stapleton,
and Phelan were standouts during the season and proved
their real calibre as replacements during the winning of
the tourney. Quilter, McCabe, and Fontaine rate as ine
material for coming varsities.

"HAIL. HAIL. THE GANG' S ALL HERE!"
The boys started the season off with not too loud a
bang, defeating a rather weak, but spirited St. John eleven
U2-Ol. Against a strong and well-trained Mt. Pleasant
club, the M o u n t i e s were completely outclasses and
lost 19-0. The team fought hard and, discounting a few
tough breaks, could have chalked up a few tallies. Things
looked up a bit when the boys took the field against
Central Catholic of Lawrence. Before a packed Stadium,
some 10,000 fans, the Gold and Blue humbled an unsteady
Central team, winning by a pair of touchdowns, I9-6. Joos
led the parade with a 65 yard trek of a punt. He pitched
beautifully to Healy later for the second, and Avery added
the third on a Hip from Merone.
Brooklyn Prep won the championship of the city, but
on October 26, they lost just a bit of the gloss. Over-
whelming favorites going into the game, they narrowly es-
caped a last minute touchdown defeat. However, the better
team won 12-7, but the Mount showed plenty of its old
spirit. Ten seconds might easily have given the city an-

The two fastest touchdowns in city football put lona
Prep out in front U4-Ol before some of our boys had their
helmets strapped. However, the glory probably dimmed
their precision, for they soon slowed down to a trot. Fight-
ing hard against an experienced Irish eleven, the Mounties
scored once and came within a Finger-tip of scoring a
second time. Despite the grand performances of Bobby Law
and Jim McCabe, it was lona's day, and they won lid-61.

Over the really rough spots in the schedule, the boys
braced up and took two in a row. The hrst from Power
HA-73 was not the best game they could have played. The
second 125-Cl from St. Francis left little to be desired.
Hopes ran high for the Hayes game. The team had hnally
hit its peak. Broder, Ahern, Cardinale, Hughes, and Halli-
nan all patched nn to make at a wonderful nlght for the
tired and weary Mounties.

CThanksglving Dayj O
Cardinal Hayes H. S.
However, let us say that hopes ran a little too high.
On Thanksgiving Day, a highly spirited Hayes team took
the held, determined to end the winning streak the Mount
had over them. That's just what they did. It was a
great day for the Cardinal and Gold, and they deserved it.
They outblocked, outran, and even outfought a sluggish
Mount team that 'never recovered from the initial shock
administered by La Monica. They couldn't be stopped and
weren't. The Blue and Gold line tried hard, but a dith-
cult season began to have its effect. Strawbridge, playing
with a serious knee injury, rallied the boys, but they
didn't have it. C24-0l is a better Dill to swallow, but
more glory to the team that handed it out.
Now that the shock is over, let's rally to our stand-
ard and prepare for other days. There's work to be done.
We weren't the best last year, but we can be next year.
Congratulations to the boys and coaches, Mr La Borne and
Mr. Murphy for a fine showing, though a losing one.

Because ol .ts 'ather tarnished record durlng the season,
-he Mount wasnt thought to be a threat to Iona, Hackley,
gf Cglumoia Grammar, all top-ranking teams. After the
first nig'it's oerforrnance, however, things changed a bit
and newswriters conceded us a chance. St. John's proved
to be too srnale and underrnanned 'for the Mountles. The
score 60-27, tels but a little of the true story. Blessed
Sacrament proved tney wee a lead.ng contender for the
t.tle. but weakened in the closing period to lose, 57-52.
Carlson and Dan Mitchell were deadly throughout the game
The Mountres won the hrst of their trophies by trouncinq
Concordia, 50-36 This entitled the team to the Parochial
School Championship title Before a sacked house of over
l5OO oeop'e, a determined Mcunt quintet upset the Dre-
qame forecasts and routed Hazkley 53-38. Thus, in one
night the boys accomplished something considered unfamil.ar
to the Mount
The ovation that Mr Morphy received was well de-
served for the fine exhibition his boys put on. We feel that
some of it was directed toward Brother Ignatius and Brother
Gilbert for the fine work they did getting the boys in shape
before the season, and keeping the J. V. at its peak after
Mr. Murphy took over the varsity. Congratulations to all.

The season of '47 - '48 found the Foruni and
Debating Team taking a well deserved place among all
the other activities at the Mount. This is largely be-
cause of the great interest and the guiding hand of
Brother Herman Edwin, who has taken upon himself
the tedious job of building up a hrstwate debating
team from what was practically a non-existent organi-
zation three years ago. At that time four boys con-
stituted the entire team: John Hebron, Hubert Donlon,
Thomas Ryan, and Denis Thonmson. This year there
are four senior teams and two junior teams in addi-
tion to the newly formed Junior Forum with sixteen
At the hrst meeting of the year elections were
held and Johnny Hebron and Tom Ryan were Put at
the helm in the role of co-presidents. Hughie Donlon
was elected treasurer, and Jim Morgan, who joined
the team last year, was elected secretary. The rest of
the team is made up of: Denis Thompson, Johnny
Clarke, James Keenan, Eddie Eddington, Dan Murphy,
Charles Flynn, Ralph Pempel, and Charles Krug. This
year, for the hrst time also, the boys, who spend a
great deal of their own time in trying to win glory
for the Mount, received public recognition. Awards,
authorized through the crusading of Brother Herman,
were presented to all those participated in a sufficient
number of Forum activities. Some of the boys also
received awards for their work in the Catholic Forensic
League, a newly formed league of eighteen Catholic
high schools in Greater New York. Everyone earned
the initial Membership Certihcate, many won the De-
gree of Honor Certificate, and a few were even a-
warded the Certificate for the Degree of Excellence.
The Erst major activity run by the League was an
oratorical declamation contest held at the Mount on
January 10, 1948, in which twenty-one schools com-
peted. Our own representative, Tom Ryan, took third
place behind Thomas Carey of Chaminade and Arthur
Leone of Cardinal Hayes. Johnny Clarke represented
the Blue and Gold in a dramatic oration contest.
Eight of the boys took part in a mass tournament,
consisting of debates and all forms of oratory, which
was held at Cathedral High School on May 5-6. The
debating teams: J. Morgan and D. Thompson, J. Hebron,
and C. Flynn took second place winnir.g four silver
medals and a trophy. H. Donlon won second place in
the Original Oratory hnals and T. Ryan took second
place in the Oratorical Declamation final. Really
splendid achievements when the fine competition offered
by fifteen other schools is considered!

The Iaurels of the Mount were upheld outside the
League also. ln the first oratorical contest of the
year, sponsored by the Ancient Order of l-libernians,
Hubert Donlon took fourth place and most assuredly
would have done better if he had not suffered a lapse
of memory while speaking. Next came the American
Legion Oratorical Contest in which Tom Ryan, -repeat-
ing Hubert Donlon's victory of last year, won first
place in the Bronx eliminations. ln the famous Jour-
nal-American Contest it was again Hughie Donlon who
represented the. Mount, but he tinished behind Vivian
Feracci of St. Barnabas and Bernard Gaffney of Ford-
ham Prep. The Holy Name Contest, which is held
late in the season, was won last year by Hughie
Donlon' and the Mount rested its hopes for a second
win this year upon Tom Ryan, but he took only third
place in a closely fought contest. These two boys, who
came to the Mount together from St. Brendan's, are
both graduating this year, but we have no doubt that
the standards of the Mount will well upheld in
the field of oratory by the boys who are coming up in
the next few years, and who are already showing great

Seniors At Mt. St. Michael
Inaugurate Student Council
By THOMAS RYAN
Vinh the ht-lp ot .1 lcu' ol the Brothers. the Senior Class is
cstgtblisliing this year. for the first time in the history of tht- Mount,
an organization .among the Students lor the benefit both ol the
students and the school. Many times in recent years the idcu ol
forming it Student Council has been promoted, but never to it great
enough degree to result in any ac-
tion. This year, however, the pro-
ject was once more brought before
the student body, and the Class
of 1948, in view of their own ben-
efit and that of the thousands of
boys who follow in their footsteps,
have taken upon themselves the
responsibility of beginning and
proving the value of a Student
Council at the Mount.
During the week of the Retreat,
an announcement was made at
lunch one afternoon that there
would be a meeting of all the Sen-
iors in the Gym. This meeting was
under the direction of Brother
Herman, who pointed out the fact
that since this would be the first
year of the Student Council mem-
bership would be limited to the
Senior Class. After Brother had
spoken on the purposes and ad-
vantages of such an organization
and had answered the queries of
some of the students as to how
everything would be run, a vote
was taken and it was found that
the Senior Class was unamimously
in favor of having a Student Coun-
cil. It was decided that the Coun-
cil would consist of five officers
and fifteen additional members, all
of whom would be elected during
the following week.
Candidacy was open to all Sen-
iors, the only qualification being
approval by three of your former
teachers. The nominations were
then handed in to one of the three
Moderators: Brother Herman,
Brother Benedict and Brother Ig-
natius: who printed up lists of the
candidates and ballots for the elec-
tion. Again the Seniors were as-
sembled in the Gym each was given
a ballot on which he could vote for
any five of the forty names which
appeared on the list. We are happy
to say that the twenty boys who
were elected represent the finest
and most unprejudiced choice which
could have been made.
The following are the five boys
who polled the most votes and who
therefore become the Officers of
the First Mt. St. Michael Student
Council. tThe names of the other
fifteen members will appear in next

The 1947-1948 edition of the Tower has proved
successful in presenting news events to the students
in a most interesting fashion. This year's paper has
upheld the line standards attained by former staffs and
has oven succeeded in earning additional laurels to add
to the glory of Mount Saint Michael.
The 1947-1948 Tower staff was under the guid-
ance of our moderator, Brother Luke. To him, whose
cooperation and timely advice were invaluable, belongs
much credit for the progress of our school's publication.
....As editor, popular John Hebron proved to be a
most ellicient and conscientious leader. Ken McDowell
earned the position of assistant editor, a post he also
held last year, and together with John Hebron pro-

The Mount has always been most prominent in the
held of sports and naturally this department was one
of great importance in the Tower. Frank McCarthy-
was our capable sports editor and his column, "Sport
Shots," proved to be one of the most popular. He
was ably supported by such sterling writers' as Marty
Ambrose, Dan Suhre, Ray Maguire, Ed Flynn, Tom
Mulligan, Joseph'LaPietra and Henry Bustos.
The first thing a Mountie does when he receives
the-Tower is to turn to the columns and perhaps the
most widely-read of these was the traditional "Look-
0ut" penned by Bob Brawn, whose ready wit and natu-
ral Hair for writing was the source of many a joyous
chuckle. The senior gossip column, the "Smoky Sen-
ior," was' taken care of by Hubert Donlan. Ed
Scully was our inquiring Photographer, while Tom
Ryan headed the "Hall of Fame." Gerry McMorrow
and Santo Lento kept the school well-informed on the
doings of the boarders in the "Boarder Line." Down
through the succeeding years we noticed "Junior Gos-
sip" written by James Keenan, "Soph Stuff" by
capable Don Tighe, "Frosh Frolics" by Bruce Mc-
Grath and the doings of the grammar school :omoilcd
by J. McCarthy, our youngest journalist.
On the Tower, as on all other publications, is
a group of determined young journalists whose efforts
pass by unrewarded but who, nevertheless, deserve
praise as the back-bone of the paper. I am, of
course, referring to the the ever-faithful news staff.
The 1947-i948 Tower can boast such news hounds as
E. Eddington, whose personal responsibility was a
monthly Forum article, James Holmes, who kept us
informed on the Band's activities, James Morgan,
whose feature articles concerned the Student Councili
John Vigilante, Jim Bolger, Robert Slattery, Charles
Krug, Don Sauer, Dan Mitchell, Tom Healey, Richard
Bartol and Ed Berberian. And, in bestowing praise l
must not forget our vigilant photographers, Bob Brawn,
Bill Desnoes, Omar Adame and Frank Cunning in high
school, and Joe McGrath and Alex Loye from the
grammar school students.
Truly, the graduating class of 1948 can be justly
proud of this year's publication as the Tower has
advanced the banner of Mount Saint Michael in the
ranks of scholastic publications.
