NIAGARA UNIVERSITY, NIAGARA FALLS, N. '1
To the vision and courage of the Vincentian Order, this annual is reverently
eetlicatetl. Among the aims of the Order are missionary expansion and the
education of youth. lt is the spirit, which they have exemplified in the latter
pursuit, that we here extol. Many of the priests, now among us, are suffering
physical ailments which they incurred as servants of God, in the far-off
missions. Having labored under the adversities of unbearable climate, de-
pressing subjections and bitter self-privations, in foreign outposts, they
return home to sacrifice the remainder of their existence, teaching in their
educational institutions. lt is only human to anticipate material reward for
services renderedg yet these men receive nothing remunerative in life-their
compensation is spiritual, . . Niagara University is an eminent example of
the perseverance of the Vincentians. Since its founding in 1856, many dis-
heartening reverses vvere encountered. Twice destroyed by the ravages of lire,
the university Was rebuilt With great difficulty. Again, financial inadequacy
once threatened the surrender of the institution. These and countless other
seemingly insurmountable crises have been triumphantly survived by these
valiant men of God. May their heroic efforts be ever crowned with God's
blessing and success! May their spirit never wane!
Upon leaving our alma mater, our hearts are diffused with
conflicting emotions of rapture and regret. We are impelled
by an eagerness to go ong yet We are fain to look back-
to reminisee .... That we might live again in the annals
of a genial pastg that We might mitigate the bitterness of
present partingg that We might abet our memories in future
retrospect--We have compiled this epitome.

NRCMDISHOP JOHN LYNCH, C M
OF TORONTO, FOUNDER
In a humble two-story frame building were held the first classes at
Niagara. This annex to the Half Way House was subject to frequent
visits by the chubby children of the tavern keeper. Often one of them
would wander in with jam-besmeared countenance to distract both
teacher and pupils. At other times, lectures were interrupted by one or
another of the urchins seeking aid in putting an unruly button in its
proper place. Such were conditions in the early days of the University.
Many were the problems which confronted the founder and his
assistants. Persevering, they overcame these difficulties, and in their
tenacity, set a tradition for those Who followed them. Theirs is a
shining example to us, who have made Niagara our home.

PHILIP S. BROWN
Philip Brown, "Phil" to the men of
Niagara, has spent an enjoyable four
years at Monteagle Ridge. A good
student and a splendid mixer, he has
made for himself a legion of friends
among the students and the professors.
It is with real interest that his Niagara
associates will watch the progress of
this amiable young man.

In '32 Niagara received a lad who was
destined to make his presence felt in
every field of endeavor. Blessed with a
fine mind, snappy wit, and a lively
personality, "Red" has always been in
the top row, whether it be for scholastic
honors or social stardom. May you
continue, "Red," to be a leader in the
new life ahead.

When you hear the chug-chug of an
ailing Chevrolet straining up the drive,
make ready for Adolph. An indefatiga-
ble worker, whether on his car or in
his studies, Adolph has never been
known to give up. A fine nature, an
animate smile, an eager desire to be
helpful, explains why all know Adolph
as a good fellow.

Keen, democratic, a brilliant scholar, a
warm-hearted friend, after four years on
the Ridge we give you, clever, affable
"Dutch" Cornell. To predict the future
is a heedless thing, but if gi man ff,
succeed must be decent, intelligent and
spirited, it is not too much to say that
this fellow has a great change,

"Dom" came to Niagara after passing
the first tvvo years of his college career
at Cathedral College. Ever since the
day he entered "Old Niagara" he en-
deared himself to professors and stu-

of so promising a lad.

The loss of Paul to the class of '35 was

Although George hails from the small

When we, and others, become alumni of Niagara University, and examine the records
and achievements of all previous classes that have passed through the hallowed halls
of old "N.U.," it will be found that the class of '37 ranks among the best. We have
been endowed well with both brains and brawn. Scholasticallv-our motto is "Nulli

with a mantle of superiority in dominating the callovv Freshmen. During this year
We endeavored to surpass our previous accomplishments. Intramural sports savv us
once more victorious. The varsity football and basketball' squads were heavily
studded with Sophomores, who helped greatly to bear the burden of competition.
Our social and scholastic feats were repeated.
With a more diminutive group, We entered our Junior year, bearing an entirely
altered attitude. Our Sophomoric trait was a thing of the past. We aimed to be real
men at the realization of the seriousness of our future life. We faced the stark reality
that We were, after a short period, to face the calloused world on our own. lmpelled
by this vivid realization, we strove to better our already established standard.
ln terminating our third year's work, we proudly retrospect, and anxiously antici-
pate the final chapter in our class history-Our Senior Year.

Farewell '34-Enter '38. So we did, with cocky smiles on our faces and knife-like
creases in our trousers. But alas! '37 soon vanquished both of them. With the imperial-
ism of the Soph class came-the pool! As events moved on, we soon found ourselves
in a land of bewilderment with all-night hazings, grape-gatherings, trunk-lugging
and bed-making. Chagrined, we asked ourselves: "Are we men or mice?" The Sophs,
with their "Riot Act,,' responded: "Mice!"
The hazing over, friendships formed and '38 began to move as 21 unit. Ar inrrainuriml

When We, as Freshmen, entered the venerable halls of Niagara, it was With a feeling
of avve mingled somewhat with trepidation. Underlying these emotions was that of
happiness, our ambition was realized, We were college men, out to conquer the world
-or at least that Part of it which was to be our world for four years. Acquisition of
knowledge was our primary motive for entering, but behind this existed a desire to
assimilate the traditions and spirit of university life.
Our youthful expectations sustained a series of rude jolts when we contacted the 3
Sophomores, our nominal superiors. Ideas of high school seniority were banished
by the welcoming treatment We bore. The hazing we encountered was extremely
irksome at times, but it was finally consummated and we discovered that the Usophsn
-the bane of our existence as Freshmen-were actually human and real fellows.

nearing completion, We were gradually absorbing the "Niagara Spirit." Football
games in Varsity Stadium nurtured this budding ardor. Later it was developed to its
fullest extent by the success of our varsity basketball team. This elusive spirit blended
us, as a class, into a solid cooperative unit, progressing from our former stand, as
lonely individuals in a new atmosphere. Our first exclusively Freshman function,
the class banquet, was a signal success, thanks to the concurrent effort of the class
as a body. Ideals originated at that banquet have been faithfully adhered to through-
out the year.
In the field of sport, on both gridiron and basketball court, we Freshmen estab-
lished an enviable record, earning coveted "Little Three" championships in both
aforementioned sports. Intramural activity savv the Freshmen earn the reputation
of hard-fighting, sportsmanlike competitors.

Long before the campus assumed the prodigious proportions it now
embraces, it enjoyed a personal "stone age." The genesis of mighty
edifices, that today? enhance the summit of the gorge, first took shape
in 1862. The foundation and much of the superstructure of that first
building remains even today. The library and Dean's offices are ample
testimony to its longevity .... What a transformation this event
prophesied! New hopes, dreams and ideals sprang from its conception,
and the propensities of the University's Fathers slowly but surely
took place. What a monument of remembrance these mighty men left
for posterity! . . . Today, when we view these new and modern build-
ings, we raise a toast to the foresight and integrity of these Fathers
who utilized all of nature's gifts here, high atop Nlonteagle Ridge.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS ASSISTANT BASKETBALL COACH
Every successful business enterprise has its silent, unheralded and unsung heroes.
The same is true of athletics on Monteagle Ridge. Niagara's genial ambassador in
athletic relations, Fatherjoseph lllig, personifies the loyalty becoming a true Niagara
man. Then there are those two line Freshman coaches, Harry Patzsch and Bill Furey,
Whose champion football and basketball teams speak for the ability and loyalty of
these men respectively. All three, stars in their field.

Unheralded, unsung and unknown to the general public, the different athletic
managers perform their many duties with a zeal that is ardent and untiring. They
are the necessary link between the coach and the team. It is through their efforts
that our teams appear on the field Well-attired and Well-equipped. Without their
coordination, athletic encounters could not be handled with the usualperfection.
They bear the onus of the unseen burden, laboring on with only the accommodation
of their charges in view.

DOWNEY, OF MANHATTAN, GAINING 20-YARDS AGAINST NIAGARA
With Ted Husing announcing, Niagara ushered in the
1936 football season at Ebbets Field, by dropping a
hard-fought game to the highly publicized Green Jaspers
of Manhattan, 25 to 6.
Although thejaspers were victorious, the Notre Dame
attack of the Purple Eagles functioned well. Early in the
second half the Eagles, led by Keegan, Dunn and Crotty,
marched down the field to score their only touchdown
with a burst of speed and power that brought the crowd
of ten thousand to their feet, in one mighty roar of cheer-
ing. However, Niagara floundered in several other
scoring chances, due to fumbles and the loss of Joe
Rybak, who was carried from the game suffering from a
broken shoulder. Downey and Kaye were the big guns
of the Jasper attack, that carried too much manpower
for the Eagles.
Following a week's intensive practice, the Purple
eleven again took to the road to engage the Red Raiders
of Colgate. Needless to say, the Chenango aggregation
packed too much power for the Niagara team and won
30 to O. But the grim determination and pluck of the
Eagles, in the face of such opposition, marked them as
a real contender. Tihay's kicking and Regan's running,
and the line play of Lucas and Petit, were outstanding
for the Purple, while the bone-crushing line drives of
Irwin, and the passing of Kern aided the Raiders in their
' . , y
pf- . .
NOTRE DAME "E" SHIFTS TO THE RIGHT, AGAINST THE EAGLES
Returning home to face the Notre Dame B team,
Niagara was determined to win, but again the Purple
clad warriors fell before the onslaught of a flawless
attack, 25 to 12. It seemed that the Irish eleven were
unable to make a miscue, as they scored time and again.
However, the personnel of their team included some
men, who later in the season, played on the Irish varsity
against Ohio State.
Then came the thriller, the Clarkson game in Varsity
Stadium. Niagara was out to win this annual home-
coming game, and they took the lead early in the final
quarter, but then they seemed bewildered, and allowed
Clarkson to tie the score 6 to 6, just before the final
whistle ended the game. Godfrey, Dunn, Lucas, and
Crotty stood out as the leaders in this heartbreaker,
while Blackley, McGrath and Fiesinger led the way for
Scoring their first win here in fifteen years, St. Bona-
venture dominated this Little Three Conference game
throughout. The play of their stars, Faust and Painton,
was spectacular. But again the Notre Dame attack of the
Eagles made the going plenty tough for the opposition.
Bonnies speed proved demoralizing to the Purple, how-
ever, and the score totaled 33 to 7 in their favor.
Outplaying the Larries from Canton did not gain
victory for the fighting Purple team. The breaks were
against them and St. Lawrence won 20 to 13. Niagara
clicked smoothly in midfield, but once near the goal
line, they seemed to get over-anxious. Freeman, Regan,
and Tihay, the Sophomore backfield, were supreme for

Led by Dunn, Schultz, Godfrey, Regan and Albano,
the Purple Eagles scored an easy victory over Alfred 40
to O. The lads from Monteagle Ridge were never headed
in their victory march over the weaker Saxons. Hodges,
punting ace of the Saxons, starred for the losers.
Hampered by a poor start, the Eagles went down to
defeat before the onslaught of the Friars of Providence
Q 20 to 6. The Purple eleven lost the game due to loose play
in the first period, when Providence scored three times.
Lucas, Leonard, and Dunn were the individual stars for
the Monteagle aggregation.
Although Johnny Godfrey was an All-American for
the day, the Purple Eagles were defeated by the Griflins
of Canisius 14 to 12, in the most thrilling game of the
season. Godfrey put on a line smashing show, in the
final minutes of play, that carried the ball for approxi-
mately seventy yards in thirteen plays, aided by the
smashing blocking of Lucas and Captain Joe Crotty.
Then Joe Regan raced around end for the score. Then, as
"MIKE" GULEY the seconds faded into history, and the crowd began to
leave the field, Clare Leonard pulled one of the "bag of
tricks" plays. Tihay faded back to pass, dodged forward to avoid two tacklers, and
hurled a long one down to Leonard, who caught it on about the Canisius seven-
teen, where he was tackled. That play started from about the Niagara twelve-yard
line. The crowd went wild, as it beheld the final gesture of a great team, that made
its bid for one major victory, but alas, out of the roar came silence, as the officials
ruled that Tihay had been too close to the line of scrimmage when he threw that
mighty pass. A few minutes later those same officials put an end to the game and to

With the varsity enjoying but mediocre success in their campaign for football
honors, considerable attention was focused on the Frosh, whose lineup included
many former high school and prep school sensations. Although limited to a meagre
schedule and serving, for the most part, as conditioners for the varsity, the Eaglets
were able to participate in five contests from which they emergedwith four victories
to their credit. Opening the season at Rochester, they easily disposed of their more
inexperienced opponents, but a week later they met unexpected opposition from Tona-
Wanda high school. However, after a few weeks' drilling in the fundamentals of the
intricate Notre Dame system by Coach Harry Patzsch, the Frosh hit their true form
and overwhelmed the Alfred Frosh. The yearlings from St. Bona's were met in the
first of the Little Three series. After a hard-fought battle, Niagara's Frosh emerged
victorious. The climax of the season came in the game with Canisius. The hitherto
undefeated and highly-publicized Griflins had numbered among their victims such
teams as the Cornell and Colgate Frosh. Before one of the largest crowds of the
year, the Eaglets put on a display of football that brought them not only the Little
Three Title, but the mythical Championship of the State of New York. With many
brilliant varsity prospects numbered among the members of the Freshman squad,
Niagara's success on the gridiron, in the future, seems assured.

which he has coached while on Monteagle Ridge. "Taps" was assisted during the

ONE EXCITING MOM11N'f IN THL BLKYFALO STATE YR!-.CAS
With the Little Three Trophy resting securely on Mont-

by the Olympic selection for the Madison Square Garden

With early season successes, marred only hy the loss
to Colgate, on the latter's court, Niagara started on their
annual New York trip. .'Xlhany State Teachers led
throughout the initial half, hut the last period drive of
the Eagles made the tinal score -48 to 38 in their favor.
Then came the hig game the win over the famous
Redmen of St. ,lohn's, -lo to 37. For years "Taps" Galla-
gher has dreamed of going to New York and heating his
Alma Mater on the hardwood tourtg and it remained for

CAPTAIN PAUL RETRIEVES BALL IN VICTORY OVER SYRACUSE
fell in rapid succession before the onslaught of the
Eagles. Then came the surprise as Buffalo State Teachers,
meeting Niagara on State's small court, defeated the
Eagles, 25 to 24. And then, in the spacious Broadway
Auditorium in Buffalo, Niagara showed the worst form
of the year to lose to St. Bonaventure, 37 to 25. In losing
this game, it seemed that the Purple mentor was losing
his grip on the club, that earlier in the season had looked
to be the greatest in the history of the University. But
on the Northern New York trip, "Taps" showed his
skill, and, by clever coaching, showed the way to
decisive wins over both St. Lawrence and Clarkson, and
repeated the feat the following week, when both teams
visited Monteagle Ridge.
Then with the Little Three Crown in the balance, St.
Bonaventure came to St. Vincent's gym, with their
Conference high-scorer in the person of "Hooks"
Loeven. Again "Taps" rose to the situation and chose
"Joey" Regan to take care of the Indian star. Niagara
won the game and Loeven scored but once, while the
husky Regan tallied twelve points. The following week
Canisius visited the Ridge in vain, as Gallagher again
used a Sophomore to clinch the Little Three Title.
Jack DiGiovanni was inserted into the fray to cover the
lanky Dudziak, and the job he did labeled him as one
of Niagara's great players.

Then came the Syracuse trip and high hopes for vic-
tory after last year's close battle. With the Eagles pack-
ing the fans in as usual, the two teams took the court in
Archibald Gym. When the smoke of battle cleared away,
the Purple Eagles, from high above Niagara's mighty
Gorge, walked off the court with a 34 to 30 victory
tucked away. Again the joyous message of victory
Then with the invitation of the Olympic Committee
in his pocket, "Taps" took his unheralded Eagles to
Madison Square Garden. Manhattan was conquered,
St. Francis beaten, and Niagara's Purple Eagles reigned
champions of Olympic District One, including the New
England states and New York state. Then, after a
week's rest, Niagara again took the road to meet
Temple in the Palestra in Philadelphia. Temple took an
early lead, but as the game wore on, the crowd rose to
acclaim a fighting band of basketeers from Monteagle
Ridge. Niagara tied the score time and again, only to
lose 37 to 36 on a last second foul, scored by a man who
had scored five consecutive times from the tifteen foot
mark that evening.
Thus ended the battles of the greatest, fightingest, gamest team Niagara has ever
had. C211 they repeat? With Captain "Bob" Paul missing next year, Gallagher will
have a tough Job finding another first class center, but "Taps" has proven his ability,
and the other veterans have showed us their calibre. They will repeat,

The 1935-36 edition of Freshman basketball at Niagara was most satisfactory to all
concerned. The Frosh went through a season of eighteen games with only one defeat
charged up against them and that being administered by a powerful and inspired
Colgate quintet. Little Three rivals fell before their onslaughts and they brought
back the Little Three Freshman championship after an absence of one year. All
district titles went to them as they defeated every team in the district that they
played, whether that team was of high school caliber or of Freshman strength.
To pick an individual star would be quite impossible due to the fact that every
man on the squad can be considered in such capacity without any hesitation or dis-
crimination shown. Fred Liberti, captain and stellar guard, was the high scorer for
the season, accounting for one hundred and twenty-four points on fifty-four field
goals and sixteen free throws. Runner-up to Liberti was Frank Bello, left forward,
who scored one hundred and eleven points on forty-five field goals and twenty-one
free throws. Blake, Ott Schmid and Morgan Davies were the next highest scorers to
round out the starting five for the Frosh. They totaled one hundred and seven, eighty-
seven and seventy points respectively.
The 1936-37 varsity will be further strengthened by these stalwart Freshmen who
next year will be extending a veteran squad to hold their starting positions. Liberti,
Bello, Blake, Schmid, Davies and Wood should go far in the ranks of varsity basket-
ball when they go up next year.

The aim of education is the harmonious development of mind and body. Niagara,
in producing an intellectual man, has not neglected the physical aspect of his training.
Opportunities are given to those who have not the natural ability or physique to
participate in varsity athletics, to compete in intramural sports under the able
direction of the Athletic Association and intramural manager, Thomas O'Donnell '36.
Baseball, basketball, football, track, swimming, softball and handball, all take
their place on the intramural calendar. Basketball is probably the most popular of
these sports. Each class is represented by two basketball teams, one in the
division and one in the "B" division. The winners of the two leagues play off for the
championship. After the interclass league play is finished, a tournament is held for
the district clubs. This tournament turns in some very good basketball and rouses a
high pitch of enthusiasm among the club members.
Touch-football is fast gaining in popularity on the campus since its introduction
two years ago. This game provides all the thrills and excitement of real football
minus the dangers and injuries of the original game.
This spring golf and tennis are to be added to the program. Plans are in progress
for an annual handicap golf tourney in which all students will be eligible to compete
for the school championship.

Tennis, the newest of Niagara's varsity sports, stepped bravely, but a bit unsteadily,
out of the infant class last spring. The Purple racqueteers started their fourth season
of intercollegiate competition with an indoor match against St. Bonaventure on April
4th, and they played through an ambitious schedule that was studded with strong
opposition. Besides the usual Little Three matches, Niagara's 1936 tennis schedule
featured meetings with Colgate and an international home-and-home series with
St. Michaels of Toronto. , Q
Niagara's six leading tennists came in pairs this season. First there were two former
lettermen-John Murphy, a steady left-hander from the Falls, andjohn Cannan, who
won his "N" two seasons back. Then two Juniors who bolstered the strong Frosh of
1934 but did not try out for the varsity last year-Richard Walton and James Fortune.
Finally, a "long and short" Sophomore combination-Ames Schoninger and Ninzio
Upon the brilliant strokes of this sturdy sextet rested the chances for successfully
bringing tennis out of its cloud of obscurity at Niagara. Bright as the outlook may
have been in 1936, it will even be brighter in 1937 for not one of these stalwarts will
be graduated this year.

Golf is not as yet a major sport at Niagara. However, it is destined to be ranked as
such in a very few years. The interest of the student body and the calibre of the
teams must necessarily warrant it to be ranked highly among the sports of the Uni-
This year marked the official opening of the new nine holes added to the course.
With this latest addition, the course is rated as one of the best in Western New York.
Not more than a five minute walk from the campus proper, it is conveniently situated
at the north end of the college grounds.
The links are especially noted for their gently sloping greens. They stand out as
puffs of deep green velvet carpets in the distance. Between them are wide aisles of a
darker shade-the fairways. Sand beds dot the borders of the greens. A babbling
brook, gentle yet merciless, winds its way among the trees, fairways and sand beds.
Streamlined white balls, zipping with a whiz, cutting the air, find their treacherous
landing spots. Swinging clubs, benches, fountains, golfers, caddies, sunshine-a
wonderful spectacle indeed! Such is the beauty and thrill of our golf course.
Since 1932 Niagara has turned out very good golf teams. This year's team is no
exception. More and more matches are being arranged each year. Boasting manv
capable players, and supported by a host of followers from the University and from
downtown, the team has pledged itself to lift golf into the major realm.

The Ming malemy
In the spring of 1935 some of the students were 'astonished to see on our campus one
fine day, a horse. Great vvas the amazement of the undergraduates when this report
was circulated. Rumor had it that the automobile had seen its day, and soon would
give way to the horse. Rumor also had it that the beast had escaped from an itinerant
Another day dawned, and the rumors were forgotten. Authorities denied flatly
that any such thing as a horse had been seen here in years. Lo and behold, that very
afternoon not one, but four horses were seen, complete with reins, saddles, stirrups,
and even riders. Closer examination proved that these intrepid equestrians were
Niagarans. From them it was learned that there was to be a riding academy run by
the University, and located on the school property.
Who was there among the college men who did not make a visit to the stables to
view the mounts? Whose curiosity vvas so slight that he did not ask many questions
concerning bays and sorrels, saddles and cinches, reins and stirrups? Probably if the
truth were knovvn, every Niagaran was present in the barn at some time during the
first Week of the academy's existence.
lt met vvith immediate success. The novelty has since worn off, but its popularity
has not vvaned. Horses no longer are an unusual sight, but novv furnish one of the
more popular forms of amusement and exercise at Monteagle Ridge.
REV. R. E. V. RICE, c.M.
The joy and exultation, of witnessing its first stone structure ma-
terialize, was short-lived. Only a few months after its completion it
was entirely destroyed by fire .... Saddened and sorrowful were the
hearts of the Fathers, as they Viewed the ruins now leveled to the
ground. But sadder still, because with the conflagration also came
the death of one of the Seminarians, who lost his life, gallantly trying
to save the edifice .... All the dreams and hopes of the Fathers were
shattered as they viewed the debris. Long years of effort and sacrifice
gone for naught, for here at their feet lay their enterprise! Consterna-
tion reigned in the high places .... But with unquenchable and un-
dying zeal, the small but untiring band of Vincentian Fathers again
took up the task of reconstructing what was left of "Old Niagara."

Under the leadership of James Fortune, editor of the first five issues, many pictures
of news and sports events were introduced, which of themselves graphically told a
fascinating story. This practice was continued by Donald Welch, who succeeded
Fortune following the latter's resignation because of a heavy study schedule.
Editorially speaking, the Index this year has attempted to arouse interest in Ni-
agara's extra-curricular activities. The one objective always kept in mind has been
the greater honor and glory of the University. Convincing testimony that our work
has not been in vain is given by the present revived interest in campus activities.

The induction of fifteen new students into its folds this year has again attested to the
scholastic value which the Lambda Chapter of Delta Mu Delta, honorary fraternity
of the Niagara University School of Business, has cloaked about its many members.
The fraternity, organized and made national by the faculty of New York Univer-
sity in 1913, was incorporated as a seat of honor at Niagara in 1932, chiefly through
the progressive zeal of its Dean of Business, John R. Wilkinson, B.B.A.
Since its inauguration the results have proven twofold. The requirement of a high
scholastic average for a period of two consecutive years has naturally greatly tended
to increase both the "class" and "after class-work" of the several students of the
On the other hand, Delta Mu Delta has given to the School of Business a chapter
of a national honor society which may correctly be regarded as being parallel to any
concerning itself with the several honor students of colleges of Arts and Sciences
throughout the country.
In organizing the Lambda Chapter of Delta Mu Delta the faculty have provided a
"place in the sun" which can be attained by the Business student prior to graduation.
Rapid increase in its membership can be expected in the years to come.

a unanimous decision. From that point onward, Niagara marched to victories over
strong teams from Rochester and Buffalo, and swept down upon Hobart, at Geneva,
to win a hard fought debate from the "Deacons" On four occasions our debaters
employed the radio in spreading Niagara's glory.
Late in March, three teams were on the road at the same time, one in Canton, one
in Syracuse, and the other in Buffalo. The University of Florida sent a strong team
from the sunny south. Niagara, in a fiercely contested debate, emerged victorious.
Only once in the entire season did Niagara taste defeat, at the hands of a great team
from Canisius College.

debaters, and to wish to Pi Delta Pi, unlimited success in future efforts.

Only ten years younger than the school itself, the R.E.V.R. still keeps up its strong,
constant life. Termed as the oldest club on the campus, this society is still admired
for its most noble qualities.

The R.E.V.R.L.A. was founded by Robert Emmet Vincent Rice, CM. in 1866.
Since that time the society has been progressing from year to year. Many Niagara
men have carried out with them into the world, the ideals and powers of oratory
imbibed in the club rooms of the society. The work begun by Father Rice has not
faltered and as long as his spirit continues to be carried on, it never shall falter.
It cannot be sufhciently stressed that the benefits reaped from an active membership
in this society can never be overestimated. Besides obtaining both knowledge and
training along oratorical lines, discipline, righteousness and all the virtues that foster
a strong character are assimilated. Good fellowship is promoted and literary abilities
are brought out. The R.E.V.R. stands out as one of the most productive societies
now existing in Niagara University.

After being frustrated two years consecutively in his efforts to produce a minstrel
show, "Tiny" Dippery this year accomplished what many at first believed to be im-
possible. Enlisting the aid of Father Robert Gillard, "Tiny" set out to prove that the
scoffers were wrong, and to make Niagara's Minstrels a reality.
These two permitted no obstacles to stand in their way. After first securing a will-
ing cast, they proceeded to drill them through hours of arduous rehearsals. This hard
work did not dampen the ardor of the performers, but rather aroused their enthusiasm
to a higher pitch.
Not only was great care given to the performance itself, but scenes and costumes as
well were planned and prepared with the greatest of care.
The outstanding feature of this minstrel show was the fact that its financial success
was assured long before the first curtain rose. This is the more remarkable considering
the fact that many had told its sponsors that their efforts could onlv result in failure.
The performance itself was a tremendous success. What else could he the result of
such hard and faithful labor? Clever comedy, snappy singing, and line dancing made
all present acclaim the merit of Niagara's 1936 Minsrrels.

This, the only language club at Niagara, has proven its popularity by always

However, it is not to be thought that the society's activities are restricted to the
social field. At their frequent meetings the members engage in many projects which
serve to familiarize them more thoroughly with the German tongue. Through the
media of lectures, slides, debates, and songs, they acquaint themselves with the
manners and customs of the German people.

time furnishing them with useful and interesting information.

Under the excellent guidance and dynamic leadership of Father Robert Gillard, the
Niagara University Band has taken a new lease on life. One might venture to quote
without fear of successful contradiction the time-worn phrase, "bigger and better
than ever " in describing the 1935-36 edition of the organization. With their snappy
new uniforms of rich purple hue, the polished brass shining in the sun, the glinting
s 4, N'-
ofthe drum major's baton as he twirls it expertly, they always cnt qi figure that makes
the heart of any Niagara man glow with pride. Nor is that pride hnsed only on looks:
for in marching and playing they need take oil' their hats to no one.
This year particularly the band has been very active. Not only have they appeared
at all home football games, cheering on the Purple and entertaining the spectators
between halves, but at every pep meeting and rally, the hand was there to .add that
necessary touch to enliven the spirits of the gang.
With. this line record to look hack upon, we are happy to tongr.unl.ite the hand

The music for the majority of social functions sponsored by the university, is provided
by our own orchestra. For the past two years its training and development has been
in the hands of Father Robert Gillard. His ability as a director is readily perceptible
in the popularity which the orchestra has recently merited. The administration of
the university showed its appreciation of their musical attainment by outfitting them
in sartorial splendor, that they might be equally pleasing to the eye as well as the
ear. Several times this year, their music has emanated from the ballrooms of the

In every extra-curricular activity, individual ability is recognized and rewarded
by fame in proportion to its worth. In an organization such as this, performing as a
coordinate unit, personal distinction is very rare. They sacrifice a great deal of their
leisure time, learning and practicing new "sensations" to add to the appeal of their
musical repertoire. Their remuneration is the pleasure and enjoyment which they
bring to their dancing audience.

A turn for the better in Niagara's fortunes was marked by the heroic
efforts of Marcus Brown. Plodding three miles through a driving
snow storm to bring a loan to the University, he arrived barely in
time to save the school from the auctioneer's hammer. This indeed
proved a good omen, as well as direct aid, for the future immediately
assumed a roseate hue. The Worst of the struggle was over, and the
greatest difficulties had been overcome. Niagara was then entering
into an altogether different period, one of prosper-iry, success. and
happiness. The trials of her administrators were ,less frequent and less
severe: a new era had dawned.

N iagara's activities. Perhaps the persistent, unconquerable spirit of the north country,
inculcated in these men from childhood, is responsible for this bid to campus renown,

In athletics, they are the outstanding group on the campus. Two football captains,
as Well as many other brilliant varsity athletes of the last four years, are natives ot
this fair city. In intra-club athletics they have been a credit to their organization.
In the classroom they leave little to be desired. They have been crowned with the
highest success in their everlasting quest for knowledge.
ln the social realm they are the "tops." The fame of their dance at Christmas has
spread throughout the remotest corners of western New York and is heralded as the
climax of the Yuletide social season. Their annual banquet held in conjunction with
the Alumni tends to cement the ties of fraternity that exist among the Niagara brothers
of the "Windy City."
Their success in all their endeavors is well merited and Niagara cannot but reioice
at the prospect of more members of this outstanding undergraduate bodv.

Many of the athletes, who have made history at Niagara, trace their birthplace to
the city of Syracuse. Its social events have always been a real success and a thing to
look forward to in the native city. The club's activity is not limited to its own func-
tions. You can always find one of its representatives in the whirl of college life,
whether it be for a social, educational or athletic occasion. Niagara is proud of the
interest and willingness to participate shown by Syracuse. In interclub athletics, the
Syracuse Club is always in high standing. When Niagara's varsity travels to Syracuse
for the annual basketball game, we find the Syracuse Club cheering her alma mater
against her own city representatives. May the club continue to carve its name into
the history of Niagara!

When the Senior Class took its final bow on the evening of January 31, the moon,
shining in all its brilliance, seemed to whisper, "Be happy and gay, for tonight is
your last social affair." These words seeped through the very walls of the historic
Cataract House and penetrated the hearts of all present. The toe-tingling music of
Smmiing: N1cHoLsoN, KEATING, DUCETIE, PAUL, WELCH, KINNANE, CREAN
Seated' Mc cL1NcY, TESSIER, GRENWIS, LUCAS, HALLAHAN
Kay Moran and her orchestra added zest to the Ballg and the class, which for four
years had visited this time-honored institution, were bowing out graciously.
From their exuberant and smiling faces all seemed merry and jovial, but beneath
this guise were hearts filled with sadness-for Niagara's oldest sons were soon to
leave their mother's protecting arms. But still came the words of the wise old moon,
"Be happy, be gay! " and thoughts of the morrow slowly passed away and words of
tenderness were whispered into anxious and affectionate ears.
,And thus the class of '36 passed in review, rich in tradition, novel in precedent,
and ever loyal to its foster mother, protector of her Royal Purple and White.

The Junior Prom, the final formal function of the year has come, when the class of '37
plays host to the departing Seniors. Spring in all its glory is now on the Ridge, and
the stage is set-long summery evenings, full moon, brilliant starlight. What more
could be needed to inspire fond parting.

The New Alumni Hall which was dedicated May 30, 1899 was the pre-
lude to Niagara's "Golden Age." But the sinister hand of fate was
still waving its black fan, for conflagration again visited the Ridge
campus in 1913, and once more the metal of the Vincentian Fathers
was put to the test. But with indefatigable spirit and energy, they
once more took up the reins and set about its reconstruction ....
Lacking all the material means of such an undertaking, but endowed
with an abundance of spiritual wealth and an untiring and ever loyal
devotion to Our Lady of Angels, work was soon begun. Who, that
now gazes upon the finished structure of the newer New Alumni Hall,
cannot but marvel at the magnificence of such signal progress. 1

Three short years ago Niagara opened its doors to greet its first students in the
Rochester Division. As we stepped over the threshold there were no upperclassmen
to make us toe the line and obey their rulesg it was up to us to establish the pre-
cedents. We do pride ourselves for the small part vve have had in building up the
hne reputation that the school enjoys today. ' '
Two classes have follovve
fondest wish of the Juniors is th h
brighter and still greater heights.
The student government set up by Dean Wilkinson is a model which any college
might be proud to call its own. With the friendly advice of Father Mahoney, IIhC
wise counsel of the Dean, and the Whole-hearted cooperation of the student bOClY,
we have thoroughly enjoyed these three years and look forward to an even more
pleasant senior year.

Two years ago twenty-one young men, recognizing the need for higher education
in the World of modern business, became the pioneer class of the Night Division.
Total strangers then, they have since tasted the fruits of that intangible something,
school spirit, and have become fast friends.
Despite the onerous cares of responsible positions by day, and full scholastic
schedules at night, they have been most generous of their time in the vvhole-hearted
participation they have given the extra-curricular activities of the school.
The Junior Class takes pride in the fact that six of its members are included in the
Student Council. That such a large percentage vvas chosen for this governing board
is an indication of the scholarship of the class.
Last year tvvo young ladies transferred from other schools and became members
of the Class of '37. Their enthusiasm in the scholastic and social activities of the
school has added no little prestige to the class.
Ever maintaining the atmosphere of delightful camaraderie, they have not lost
sight of the sobering thought that they are creating precedents and tradition.

.-Xlter two years of college life, the Sophomore Class of the Rochester Division points
with P.lI'tlOIlLllWlC pride to its achievements in curricular and extra-curricular activity.
lt has emerged from the chrysalis of Freshman vvonderment, and taken its place in
the college scheme with responsible seriousness.
By keeping at all times within the realm of good behaviour, they have encountered
little opposition or trouble from the Juniors, an
their superior position to the Freshman class
of its members.
d have on occasion demonstrated
by the simple process of harrying some
Sophomores can be counted in all the activities ofthe school as alert and interested
participim ts. ln the field of sports, we find the basketball and tennis teams made up
chielly of second-year men. The business, debating, and social clubs all give evidence
that the second class to be graduated from this school has initiative and the will for
ln conjunction with the Freshmen, they presented the first outstanding social
event of tie school, the Freshman-Sophomore Hop, truly a success. With the eX-
petience of past vicissitudes for a stepping-stone, greater things may be expected.

The Night Division ofthe Sophomore Class modestly admits that it has been a most
active and zealous unit in the affairs of Niagara University. Its members, since their
initiation into the life of the school, have banded together in a compact and energetic
body, disregarding differences of personality, for the purpose of fostering and en-
hancing the Spirit of the University.
In continuation of the fine work accomplished in their Freshman year, the Sopho-
mores have contributed many of their ,members to the various scholarly and social
organizations of the Rochester Division. In the realms of sports, dramatics, student
government and journalism, their representatives have been most eager and en-
thusiastic in furthering the interests of the School. Also, they have expended a great
deal of time and energy in garnering for their class high scholastic distinction and
Over a period of two years, acquaintances have been made, which, nurtured' by
close companionship and a common purpose, have steadily ripened into friendships
which will undoubtedly endure long after the far distant degrees have been bestowed
and the Sophomores have stepped forth as graduates of this University.

It is within the power of each incoming Freshman body to serve as trail-blazers.
Some may regard this period of probation as a privilege, others look upon it as an
unpleasant duty. Needless to say, those who consider the initial year of a four year
course a privilege will reap full benefit and enjoyment from the Whole course. Their's
is the opportunity to initiate a cycle with the fruits ofa banner year. The succeeding
three years will be tilled with competition with new entrants and the struggle to
equal and better the records of their predecessors.
With the enthusiasm of professionals and the integrity of lawyers, accountants,
and business executives-positions to which they aspire-each member ofthe Class
of '39 has determined to set up an enviable record.
With such a spirited start, it is not diflicult to picture the strides which will be
taken by those neophytes of today. Whatever the nature of their ventures, the
University expects this history-making Freshman Class to blaze a trail of sound
achievement as long as they remain students of Niagara.

Attending their classes at the close of a day devoted to the grim business of earning
a living, Freshmen of the Evening Division apply themselves to their studies with an
enthusiasm that only a self-imposed task can arouse. Keenly aware of the standards
demanded of those who would play even a minor part in the economic struggle
today, these young people are convinced of the necessity of a higher education.
And they are backing their convictions with their spare time and their somewhat
' less spare funds.
With an avidity for study that has been indulged to the full extent of their leisure,
they have had little opportunity for initiating extra-curricular activities. They have,
however, shown a Willingness to cooperate with other divisions and to participate
in interclass functions. No doubt, as experience directs the compilation of their
Schedules, they Will find it possible to avail themselves in greater degree of oppor-
tunities for developing the social side of their natures.

lt is quite conceivable that student government may become a boon or a detriment
to a university. That the results achieved from the Work of the Student Council
have been a distinct asset, is, We think, an occasion for pride on the part of the
Student Body which designated the personnel of this group, and OU the Paff Of TUC
university which encouraged its leadership. I
For we hold that the proof of any government is in the governed. The phenomenal

community, and, above all, the genuine regard which the student body has for the
Council are eloquent tributes to its efforts.
The officers of the Student Council, selected on the basis of scholastic attainment,
consist of President Herbert Gazely, Vice-President Williain Knauf, Secretary Gregg
Merrell, and Treasurer John Deegan. No small part of the Council's success is due
to the faculty advisor, Mr. Francis A. O'Brien. His advice has been ready and ade-
quate vvhenever needed.
"Beware of that man," said Diderot of Rousseau, "He believes everything he
says!" We are reminded by such a saying that sincerity, as a form of influence, is
an engine of incalculable potency. Here, then, is the quality we would apply to the
Council. Honesty of purpose has ever premeated their efforts. Difference of opinion?
Certainly. Spirited argument? Of course. But always they have visioned the ideal of
a great University of which they are the pioneers.

efhcient cooperation on the part of the student body and faculty, we should have
been unable to bring to the book whatever measure of success it has attained.
The principle, that credit should be given where credit is due, places on the staff
the welcome obligation to give public recognition to the services rendered by the
faculty advisor, Mr. Willis T. Jensen. His advice and criticism have been invaluable.
If the reader of these pages has gleaned any conception of the warm friendship
which has inspired our efforts, or if he has come to some understanding of the spirit
of fellowship that prevails at Niagara, we shall feel well repaid.
The Business Forum was founded in 1933. The members of this organization strive
through the cooperation of its leaders to gain a more intimate understanding of
contemporary practice. Guest speakers of renown are responsible for one side of the
instruction, the organization also benefits from field trips.
The growth of the club has been gradual but sound, and there is no doubt that its

membership will continue to grow with the ever-present spirit of Niagara behind it.
Under the leadership of Mr. John Barrow, faculty advisor, the Forum has become
one of the most active clubs in the University. In addition to the gaining of practical
knowledge, Mr. Barrow has fostered an atmosphere of good fellowship among the
members which is evident in every undertaking of which they are a part.
li Field trips to several of our city's largest manufacturers were more helpful to the
ii individual than might be presumed, as operations and practices observed were new
to us. Such opportunities as these cannot be overlooked by the student who will
one day be thankful for bits of information gathered from varied tields of industry.

in which the administration and the new coach, Mr. Willis T. Jensen, found them-

The Women's Association has accomplished the immediate purpose for which it was
formed last year-that of securing for the Women of the college a share in the extra-
curricular program by gaining representation on the Student Council.
Better still, it has strengthened friendship's ties by promoting social activity among
the Women students. The Association has had many interesting and lively meetings
during the year. The members have tried to establish a tradition among the women
of Niagara which will continue after their college days are over-an unsvverving
loyalty to the standards and ideals of the University.
The sympathy and guidance that Dean Wilkinson has given the Women's Associa-
tion has been sincerely appreciated by its members. The Dean has never failed to
lend a Willing ear to the many needs of the group, be they great or small.

This year a Board of Censors was elected for the sole purpose of testing the skill of
new members. At the first few meetings, new members were quizzed by the Board
in the presence of the members. A Hallowe'en party was arranged last fall, in Decem-
ber an initiation festivity was given in honor of the new members, and in March a
St. Patrick's party was held at Miss Herman's home.
The members of the Club are very proud of the success of their endeavors to pro-
mote social relationship within the group, and it is their sincere wish that the new
members will continue the work which they have begun.

They opened the schedule, playing Freshman basketball, by Winning a fast, hard-
fought game from Saint Michael's of Toronto University, and closed with a creditable
loss to the phenomenal squad of Freshmen from Syracuse University.
Throughout the early part of the season Mel Smith, pivot man of the team, showed
his superiority to other centers by out-playing and out-scoring the best of them, his
loss to the squad at mid-year was a sore blow. Jack White directed the floor work
and his shiftiness and keen eye accounted for a majority of the points in most games.

IT'S WO DERFULV'
O The yearbook disease Cpahlicamlum amzaalisD is a periodic affliction in all
of our best schools. 0 Earb' symptoms: a flurry of activity, shortened
breath, contracts before the eyes, a shaky signature with an empty feeling
in the pit of the stomach after signing. 0 First stage: staff assignments,
liberal promises of assistance, accompanied by a feeling of security. CLook
out for this false peace-ever hear of the lull before the storm?D 0 5 'ff'
stage: feverish activity, sleepless nights, muttering under the breath,
gleaming vvildy, hair on end. 0 Thira' or virulent stage: utter frenzy, ac-
companied by frothing at the mouth and tearing the hair. Approach with
caution, as patient is in no mood to be trifled with. At this point patient may
be heard retorting to critics: "I hope all your children will be yearbook
editors!" 0 Ol' Doc has never isolated the germ of yearbook
disease, but he's known all over the country for his wonderful bedsidd
manner. His old homely prescription 'let me do all the doctorin' always
prevents the last and deadliest stage: editorial insanity, aggravated by
separate printer and engraver. He laughs at specialists: "A feller told me one
time, he sez 'A specialist is a kind of a man that knows more and more about
less and less,' 'n' durned if he ain't right." 0 Two of the doc's best patients
this year are "Red" Crean and Bill Heiber. The NIAGARAN is finished, and
they're not only alive but in the best of health. 0 Verham sapierztae satis est
-which freely translated, means "Let that be a lesson to you."
