he central idea throughout the pages of our Anniversary Issue of the
"Mountaineer" is the consolin g truth that the familiar places herein
pictured have been the point of departure of hundreds of young men
to a full and stable way of life, and that these same familiar scenes will
recall the traditionally high ideals of our educational eforts.
Wie of Mt. St. Michael are proud of the many young men who have
left us to continue their education in institutions of higher learning and
from there have gone on to fill creditably the ranks of the professions.
IW e are especially proud of the many others who have generously an-
swered the Call of the Master to devote their life to His service. We are
greatly honored by the unseljish patriotism of hundreds who defended
their country in the armed forces. W' e are immeasurably indebted to the
thirty-two who have paid the supreme sacrifce of their life in the call of
duty. In short, the standing and accomplishments of those who have gone
through the Mount training during its first twenty-five years of existence
bring nothing but the greatest credit and glory.

VERY REVEREND BROTHER LEONIDA, F. M. S
Superior General of the Marist Brothers
y happy coincidence, l95l marks a double anniversary. Wliile Mount Saint Michael
turns its first quarter-century as a Marist institution, the Marist world at large re-
joices in the half-century of its Very Reverend Superior General, Brother Leonida,
as a member of the Congregation.
We join the legions of Marist Brothers and students of the six continents in the
heartfelt Te Dezzm for these fifty years of achievement and to it we add a fervent prayer
to our Heavenly Mother that she spare Her faithful servant, Brother Leonida, for many
years of endeavor and accomplishment in the Cause of Her Son.
OMNIA AD JESUM PER MARIAM!

Xlifhenever we hear the words "Mount Saint
Michael", we think of a handsome brick building.
expansive grounds, black-garbed figures - and Bro-
ther Leo Sylvius. In fact, to many Brother Leo and the
Mount are practically synonymous.
During his ten year term as Principal he has im-
pregnated the school with his personality. He has
been the mind ruling the physical operations of the
school body. A dignihed, efficient leader, Brother Leo
has the unfeigned respect and admiration of every
teacher .ind student in the school. His presence is
enough to restore ruffled discipline, while a ufatherly
talk" is reserved for the more difficult cases.

One of the brightest feathers in his cap is the new
Memorial building, for more than any other one man,
he is responsible for the actual layout of the gym.
Outstanding among Brother l.eo's qualities is an
astonishing capacity for hard workg a description of
some of his chores over and above his ever-pressing
office work would put any handyman to shame, There
is a danger that we might be inclined to rake Brother
Leo for granted and forget to express our apprecia-
tion for all he has done for us. May this serve in
some small way, then, to express our gratitude . . .
From the graduates and student body, a sincere
"Thank you, Brother Leo."

The First Ten Years
The Great War was over, schools were over-
crowded, and St. Ann's Academy taxed to the limit.
Further expansion in Manhattan was practically im-
possible, and the Brothers began to seek for greener,
less-occupied pastures. Land abounded in the far
reaches of the Bronx, and expeditionary forces ven-
tured into these wilds. After careful explorations the
most remote plot was staked out. Many a skeptical
eyebrow was raised when informed of the choice.
True, most of the area was undrained, a brook wound
across the property and decided to settle in an un-
sightly hollow near Pitman Avenue. Part of the land
purchased had been used to dump Mt. Vernon refuse,
rocks and rills had kept other prospective buyers
away. Only the territory nearest Nereid and unpaved
Murdock looked promising for school grounds. Even
today, land to the south of the Mount affords
"grounds" for comparison with those distant days.
There is one advantage to an ugly duckling, and that
is the price. Our ugly duckling was legally adopted
on September 29, 1921, since it was his feast day, St.
Michael the Archangel had no choice but to take it
under his wing. Angels seem to have acquired amaz-
ing know-how in rearing awkward children, for
some day the ugly duckling would become a majestic
x . .-.hip
,atm s. -V
Incidentals had to be attended to, Monticello and
Hill Avenues had to be blocked off, and a mass of
other details postponed the actual construction. Re-
member, those were the twinkling Twenties, the era
of .glittering prosperity, and the original blueprints
were worthy of an elaborate age. Besides the main
building, there was to have been a tremendous wing
to the North, with a swimming pool on one floor and
a gym on the other. Another large wing to the South
would serve as dormitories, while a magnificent
chapel was to lie to the rear! Perhaps these dreams
would have come true, but it was getting late -
1925 already and the big burst not four years away.
Ground was broken on September 29, and St.
Michael took a tighter grip on the reins. By Christ-
mas the steel was up and a certain question began to
fly about, "Bro. Leo, will the building be ready by
September?" In 1949 the question had not changed,
the difference was that the first Bro. Leo was then
the Provincial, while the second is the present Princi-
pal, the first project was the main building, while the
second was the Memorial Gym. In the lirst instance,
the building was ready for September. Should we
remark that the infant Mount bore an amazing re-
semblance to the mature adult of twenty-five?

Bro Florentius was in charge of the ioneer fac
. p -
ulty of fourteen Marist Brothers. With Bro. Leo,
Provincial, he deserves our gratitude and esteem for
guiding the school through the green . . . and the
lean . . . years. Father Tapin took up the duties of
chaplain which he was to perform so faithfully for
twenty-five years, whence he would go to celebrate
our jubilee in heaven. One of the "founding Broth-
ers" has risen in stature with the school, until now he
guides the destiny of the Mount as Director.
The infant showed hearty vitality from the first,
the registration scales reading a healthy 62 pupils.
The child is father to the man, and some early cus-
toms have remained with us. The first raffle for the
benefit of the basketball team was begun on Novem-
ber 16, 1926. The term "Mount weather" was coined
when the rain chased the first graduation exercises in-
doors to the chapel.
St. Michael was paid due homage by a solemn
dedication ceremony, during which his statue was
unveiled. Mrs. Charles Augustine Robinson, world-
famed National Flag Lady, presented us with an
American flag. A tablet in the parlor commemorates
this outstanding day in our history.
The Regents tests that harassed the hrst students
dealt with Civics, Silent Reading, and Spelling.
Baseball was the first organized sport. An early
Mount journalist reports, "the large open area in front
of the power-house affords us space for warming up
the old wing, sometimes, alas, to the detriment of a
few glasses in the windows of the laundry and to the
great chagrin of the laundryman, to say nothing of
the Reverend Treasurer." Our smile broadens when
we read about "a magnificent stadium" which would
occupy the hollow along "Mundy Lane". Those were
the days when winter sports did not mean football
of basketball. Our scribe goes on to say, "Many a
happy hour was spent coasting down the slopes in the
rear of the power-house. Then the brook was dam-
med and the heightening waters provided us with a
beautiful skating rink."
Rousseau would have approved of one of the
early extra-curricular activities, the cultivation of a
large garden to the south of the building by the
boarders. The Mount was a country school with a
The most glamorous activity of the year was the
annual gym exhibition in which the whole student
body participated. The 1928 exhibition set a pre-
cedent by being rained out. These spectacles grew
more impressive with the years and attracted thou-
sands of spectators. Finally they were discontinued
during the war years and never resumed.
After a year and a half of existence the young
school began to experience severe growing pains.
One reporter of the late twenties informs us, "It was
amid loud expressions of rejoicing that we heard the
news that a new building had been decided upon to
be ready for the opening of school in September.
Our basketball lovers will at least be sure of a spa-
cious and commodious hall for their settings." How
easily satisfied were the "basketball lovers" of that
In addition to the dormitory building, two addi-
tional fioors were to rise on the power-house, and
plans for the "dream gym" were pushed forward.
Then came the depression and an abondonment of
our castles in Spain, we settled for the "dorm". Regis-
tration dropped to an alarming low during the en-
suing yearsg the number of boarders once reached 65.
Another decade would pass before anyone could
seriously consider a new building program.
The depression had its brighter aspect. One hun-
dred WPA workers were kept busy for several
months covering the rubbish heap in the Mt. Vernon
corner, filling in the gulley lower down, and construc-
ting the wall along Mundy Lane. The cinder track,
the longest in the city, was laid, the football field
leveled, and handball courts erected. While the con-
struction fever was as its height, Murdock Avenue
donned a respectable pavement.

September, 1929, was an eventful month for
New York City, even though jimmy Walker's town
did not realize it at the time. In that month, football
was introduced at Mount St. Michael! Should we
risk an accusation of arrogance by noting that this
has been the most lasting ill effect of the depression
for many New York High Schools? Our Rockne
was Milton "Pop" jahodag he set an example for
future mentors by winning four out of six games in
his first season. In 1935, Mr. james jordan of Law-
rence, Mass., took over the duties of athletic director.
The following season saw the Mount soar to a dizzy
pinnacle in the football world. Highlighting a per-
fect season was the defeat of Iona, breaking the lat-
ter's undefeated skein at twenty-six games. Fordham
Prep and All Hallows were already becoming our
Baseball would not be denied its place in the sun
that year. No less an arena than the Polo Grounds
was chosen for our play-off with St. johns of Brook-
lyn for the city title. It seemed as if the Mount would
cop a double crown when we led 9-2 in the fifth
inning. However, baseball crowns do not seem to fit
us comfortably and we began our habit of passing
them on to others.
About this time an unknown young Maryknoll
priest came to the Mount during vocation week. He
impressed everyone with his evident sincerity as he
spoke of the lay apostolate. He is far better known
today as founder of the Christopher movementg his
name is Father james Keller.

Talented Dr. Carl Hauser had already taken up
his stay among us as music instructor. He was to re-
main with us in that capacity until his death in
One custom which became firmly entrenched
during these formative years was the Annual Mount
Invitation Games. As many as 850 grammar school
athletes of the surrounding vicinity have gathered
for the field and track events. The meet early gained
the prominence it was to hold for many years.
In 1936 we almost moved into Mount Vernon!
A change in the boundary line was proposed and put
up to the people in a referendum. The Bronx dwel-
lers were practically unanimous in their desire to con-
tinue to be Bronx dwellers. Mayor LaGuardia sent
the police band to parade along Murdock to show
his appreciation. We are still bounded by the side-
walks of New York!
An all-around athlete during the '35-'36 season
was a certain johnny Murphyg of whom we shall see
The year 1956 was a milestone, the tenth birth-
day of a healthy young school. Major obstacles had
been overcome during the first decade, and the able
pilots who steered the school through the rough
water deserve our whole-hearted gratitude. We pause
now to thank sincerely Bro. Florentius, Bro. Leo, and
Bro. Francis Xavier. Brother Florentius has already
gone to his rewardg we trust that he continues to use
his influence on behalf of the school he founded.
Brother Leo, Provincial and later Director during the
worst of the depression, deserves a special thanks.
Brother Francis Xavier raised the struggling school
to a level with any of its kind in this section.
The Second Decade
The beginning of the second decade found us on
the upswing, bursting with vitality. Registration was
at an all-time high of five hundred and twenty. The
Mount students took a fierce pride in their young
Alma Mater, and school spirit burned with a bright
intensity. The tenth anniversary annual affords us an
idea of the sentiments of one boy: "We rooted as
loudly for our losing team of '34 as we did for our
championship aggregation of '33 We have always
prided ourselves on our school spirit."
In june, 1936, Brother Francis had announced
that he had secured the services of a Notre Dame
alumnus and a citizen of Pelham to take charge of
the football teams. The effect was typically electric.
An inexperienced squad was whipped into shape
and proceeded to trounce its tormentors of the previ-
ous season. Benjamin Franklin, Pelham, Eastchester,
Iona and Turkey Day rivals, All Hallows, learned to
respect Howie Smiths teams in that Fall of 1936.
There was a building program in the First year of
the new era, but how modest compared to our gran-
diose dreams of '29! The cottage was constructed
and the rocky southwest corner smoothed and hlled.
The handsome statue of Our Lady lent dignity and
grace to the quadrangle.

The purpose of the raffle of 1940 was solely to
finance a new gymnasium. Mount students of the
succeeding years would become more and more con-
vinced of the truth of the adage concerning the con-
struction of Rome.
Gonzaga High traveled all the way from Wash-
ington, D. C., for the privilege of eking out a one-
point victory over M. S. M.
Our first musicale was excellently rendered but
poorly attended. Time and the growing reputation
of our orchestra would soon fill the empty seats

convenience, even a luxury, of which few other
schools can boast.
1943 was a big year in every sense. That was the
year Brother Nicholas returned as Director and took
up his pleasant task of making friends with the
school and for the school. He was to become well-
nigh indispenstable in his six-year stand at the helm.
That was also the year the Mount football team rose
to glory. Howie's squad was a thing of matchless
precision as it ripped through St. Agnes, Xavier,
Chaminade, Brooklyn Prep, Fordham Prep, Haver-
straw, Curtis and . . . the final flourish . . . Cardinal
Hayes. As New York champs we challenged the
West to send us their champs, the challenge was
taken up by St. George H. S. of Chicago. Quite a
commotion was stirred up over the coming frayg the
newspapers were interested, the Mount was New
Yorks team. The arena would have to be the Polo
Grounds, a lesser stadium would not be worthy. At
Grand Central the Mount band met the visitors in an
appropriate fashion, a half-hour serenade. The great
day was raw and the sky overcast, but the game kept
thousands of spectators at a fever heat of excitement.
We scored first and were within one minute of scor-
ing last, but the clock ran out on us with the score-
board registering ZO-25. Newsreels took the game
all over the country and showed it to'soldiers, proud
Mount alumni among them, in other lands. Gerry
Begley, Frank Burke, and Bill O'Connor went on to
play for Notre Dame.
An excellent band under the masterful conduc-
ting of Bro. Gerald Dominic won two trophies at the
Irish Feis at Fordham. The track team, as usual, won
the Bronx-Manhattan-Westchester Meet.

much needed feminine touch. The Mothers' Club was
formed under the presidency of Mrs. Begley. The
most immediate result was the first Christmas Bridge

The alumni flocked back to the school for the

renewed acquaintance with their former teachers,
present for the occasion.
Hubert Donlon won laurels as an orator in the
Holy Name and Journal American contests.
The first bazaar proved a success beyond all ex-
pectations. Only the area between the power-house
and the dormitory was used, and it turned out to be
woefully inadequate. Hundreds of people had to be
turned away for want of room.

Brother Nicholas closed his term as Director and
left for a brief sojourn in Europe. Hundreds of sin-
cere friends gathered to express their feeling at a
testimonial dinner. The Mount had reached its peak
under his direction and the fruit of his efforts would
remain after him in the form of the new gym.
The history of the year 1949-50 hardly needs
repeating. Remember the professional gridsters who
practiced on our campus? . . . the Memorial debacle?
It seems only yesterday that Bishop Donahue under
the canopy of umbrellas stooped to shovel the first
bit of saturated earth. The new gym was born at last!
In this quick glance back over the years we have
seen only the outstanding events and we probably
overlooked many that could be included. However
these news items are not the most important part of
our history nor our proudest boast The work of real
value has gone on during every school day of our
twenty five years of existence That work is the re
lentless task of education of molding minds of form

successful performance lies Mount St Michael s great

Were we to judge ofithis past basketball season
in the light of the scores listed below, we might be
inclined to say that it was a complete failure. But
even though figures don't lie, they give but a cold
and uncompromising account of a sportive event.
Our hoop quintet won a special type of victory this
year, one which ordinary books could not adequately
record, their every game was an eloquent expression
of the "never-say-die" spirit they had acquired.
Our opponents amassed sixteen victories over the
Blue and Gold in some twenty-two encounters, while
we claimed but six for ourselves. These included
double victories over Rice and Power, and single
wins over Fordham Prep and Tolentine. It was only
after having played six games that the Mounties
managed to squeeze a forty-flve to forty-three win
in some seventeen games . . . Vince Ditrano jotted
down a hundred and forty-two points in twenty con-
tests . . . Bob McGuire, Junior guard noted for his
driving and ball-handling, scored one hundred and
twenty-six points, giving him an average of six per
game . . . "Red" O'Donnell, Soph ball-handling sen-
sation and set shot artist, scored only sixty points, but
his average "from the floor" was slightly above eight
hundred as he sank twenty-five field goals out of
Bob Brandt, our lanky pivot man, was nothing
short of a sensation as he piled up three hundred and
fourteen points in twenty-two games, for an average
of almost fifteen points per game . . . john Priest,
Mounts driving forward, averaged eleven points a
game as he scored a hundred and eighty-seven points

Perhaps the most fatal club the Mount faced was
Archbishop Stepinac of White Plains. This club
defeated our quintet three games in succession. The
Crusaders were also responsible for putting us out
of the Westchester tournament in which we were the
One of the highlights of the season was the sec-
ond Fordham game. In this game Bob Brandt, our
deceptive pivot man, tallied thirteen field goals and
four free throws for a total of thirty points. This
established an unofficial school record, surpassing
"Randy" Carroll's mark of twenty-eight set last year
in one of the Stepinac frays.
The Mount had terrible luck as they lost four
contests by one point and one by two points. The
single point setbacks were: the opening two games
'against Tolentine and St. Ann's, and against LaSalle
and Xavier. The two point defeat was at the hands
of the Green and White of Manhattan Prep.
Our team did not win any awards or honors for
the school but they learned how to adopt the right
spirit in sports. No team at the Mount has ever had
more fighting spirit in the midst of such a poor and
disheartening season. These boys never became dis-
couraged even though they suffered setback after set-
back. They learned and put into practice the spirit
that is so necessary in the making of a true Christian
gentleman. We of the student body take off our hats

the average soldier . . . to a team which played its
best, regardless of the score. Congratulations, team,
for a splendid moral victory!

As the season gradually came into its important
stage, the Mount harriers took part in a number of
dual meets to prepare for the coming championship
contests. Under the guidance of coach Quigley the
Mount track team conquered Bishop DuBois twice
and Brooklyn Prep once, but failed against Seton
Hall Prep. The first of the championship meets of the
year was the New York University Meet in which
Tony Pharao came in 14th, a lone score for the
Mount. However, the team showed considerable
improvement the following week and managed to
take fourth place in the Bronx-Manhattan-Westchester
Meet. On November 4th, the Mount participated in
the Fordham meet. Tony Pharao took individual
honors, crossing the finish line in the remarkable
time of 15.52. The next Mountie to cross the finish
line was Lud Odierna in 20th position, followed by
John D'Elia 25rd, Ralph Gardner 41st, Alex Loye
51st, Joe Conway 86th, and Ralph Lewis 89th. The
combined efforts of the runners enabled the team to
take third place and obtain team medals. The next

big championship on the team's schedule was the
Westchester Championships. For the past two years
the Mount runners were able to win this important
contest and they were out to win again. On Novem-
ber Sth, Mr. Quigley's dreams of the championship
were realized when Tony Pharao crossed the finish
line in first place. Tony has the distinction of cop-
ping individual honors in this meet for three con-
secutive years. The rest of the Mount harriers placed
among the top fifteen contestants to enable them to
win the Westchester Championships a third time.
November llth was the day of the City Cham-
pionships and the Mount team showed promise of
being among the top teams. However, due in large
measure to the illness of one of its top men, T
Pharao, the team failed to place in this meet as well
as in the Private School Championships the following
week. The last meet of the seas-Jn found the team in
New jersey to take part in the Seton Hall meet. Led
by Pharao, the team placed and all the runners re-

Pete Werner tossed the shot to cop first place, and Bill
Krebs took second in a very close Freshman 50 yd.
dash. Tom Murtha added three points in the 330 yd.
dash, and Tony Pharao jotted down another two in

To climax the '50-'51 indoor track season, the all-
important City Championships were held at Madison

with Loughlin halfway in between. Tony Pharao

Hayes in the mile, and the mile relay fOdierna, Mai-
berger, Mackey and O'Brien9 managed a point by

first place, and the second 880 yd. relay composed of
Wiest, Quartaro, Thomma and Seh took fifth place.
Although the 1950-'51 season was not exceptional,
the coaches did their best with the material on hand.
The team and coaches, then, do deserve our congrat-
ulations for their hard work and fighting spirit.

On March 19, not long after the "Hot Stove"
league experts had completed their predictions for
the coming season, Coach Howie Smith started whip-
ping this year's Mountie "9" into shape. With seven
lettermen returning from last year's squad: four in-
fielders, a catcher, and two outfielders, coach Smith
already had a nucleus about which to mold a winning
team. The only problem was the pitching staff. After
brief try-outs, newcomers John Priest, Frank Weist
and Jerry Markey along with the J.V. veterans- Richie
Manello and John Rose came out on top forming this
year's pitchers. Bill Forbes and Frank Saitta, two
swift lefties, shared mound duties in non-league tilts.
Try-outs also brought to light the ability of Eddie
Gramling Coriginally a shortstopb and james Mc-
Guire, his understudy, at third base. Co-captain joe
Salvato, who hit over .300 last season, sparkled both
afield and at the plate, and was ably assisted at the
keystone by Bob McGarvie, the glue-fingered second
baseman. The duties at the initial sack fell to G.
Percoco, who was backed up by big Vin Ditrano.
Rounding out the infield was utility man Bob Alfieri,
who saw action as a second sacker. Behind the plate
we saw the Mount's squatty mainstay, Co-captain
Richie Farrell, upon whose shoulders lay the respon-
sibility of breaking in newcomer Bob Herlihy. Patrol-
ling the outer gardens were longball-hitter joe Cam-
malierig Scotty McKelvey, last year's standoutg john
O'Reilly, popular with the boarders, and Bobby
Catherman, who also could be consigned to mound
The squad headed the league until almost the
very end, living up to the title given it by Zander
Hollander, "The team to beat". Timely hitting and
surprisingly good pitching made the Blue and Gold
the area's standout. The team batting average was
well over .250 and the infleld, frequently lauded by
local papers, played almost errorless ball, booting
only an occasional grounder. On the other hand the
outfielders were frequently bothered by a strong sun,
particularly in left field. Though we were edged out
of first place in the league by Cardinal Hayes, this
year's squad deserves hearty congratudations . . . for
under Howie and Brother Terence, the team has
worked hard and long, living up to expectations.

'Ihere IS no one rn the world vnho more than a

It was therefore wlth natural maternal rnturtrveness
that the Mount Mothers banded together 10 1945
under the able leadershrp of Mrs Mary Begley to
form the Mothers Club Its prrmary purpose was to
promote socxal actrvrtres rntended to lend a fimnclal
hand to the betterment of the school they had chosen
for therr sons
Sxnce 1ts formatron thrs proneer organrzatnon has
proved untrrrng rn sponsorrng such socral actrvrtres
as brrdge parnes barn dances and Chrrstmas partres
Moreover 1 group of the Mothers took charge of the
football concession every year and therr yoyful zeal
h1s been a tremendous factor IH assurrng the success
of our yearly bazaars
Even the casual observer cannot but realrze that
Club has always been of rnvaluable
tssrstance to Mount Sarnt Mrchael It IS then the
ferxent hope of ill those connected rn my wry wrth
the school that the Mothers wrll contrnue to follovs

In a world of economic, political, and ideological
conflict such as ours, thefneed for forceful and vibrant
Catholic leadership is more urgent' than ever. This
moving conviction, cgftpled with the belief in the
"Apostolate of the Spoken-Word", explains the "raison
d'etre" of the Mount Forum. ,Wfiththis ultimate goal in
mind, the members of the Mount forensic group have
distinguished themselves in debating the national"high
school topic: Resolved that the American People Should
Reject the Welfare State.
In the fields of 'Extemporaneous Speaking, Original
Oratoty, Dramatic, Humorous, and Oratorical Declama-
tion, the members .have found ample occasions to develop
and round out their talents toward the perfection of that
ultimate aim of leadership.
