This year, the impressive appearance of the build-
ings on the University of Detroit High School campus
on Seven Mile Road took on a new look. An addition
was built at the rear of the present Faculty Building.
It will provide a kitchen, dining room, several chapels,
a recreation room, and living quarters for the Iesuit
faculty. The space has been badly needed for a long
while, and finally through the hard work of many,
especially the Dad's Club, it is a reality.
Adding substantially to the new look is the con-
necting passageway between the School Building and
the Faculty Residence. This one-story structure will
house a new treasurer's office, a switchboard room,
and four parlors for consultation with visitors. Now all
the buildings on the campus are connected so that a
person can walk from the Faculty residence to the
Senior Lounge in the gym without stepping out-of-doors.
The main entrance on Cambridge Ave., at the left,
is the focus point of our campus. It is through this
entrance that young men of Detroit walk to reap the
many benefits of a Catholic Education in the Iesuit

present Faculty Building as it was seen in early September

Our shield declares in emblems the mean-
ing of this year's annual. The basic meaning
has been written across the tops of our papers
for the last four years: A.M.D.G.: For the Greater
Glory of God. It is the desire of the faculty and
students oi the University of Detroit High School
that everything be done for this purpose - to
glorify God. This intention is really the answer
to the child's question: "Why did God make
me?" He made me to know Him, to love Him
and to serve Him, in a word to glorify Him.
These three are present in any good act, but
for editorial reasons we have divided our treat-
ment of them. Knowledge will be treated in the
Senior and Underclass sections, Love will be
treated in the Religious section, and Service in
the Activities and Sports sections-all A.M.D.G.

A whispering stone, you are soft-hewn
From out the earth's cold heart.
And silent boy, I am a rnan too soon.
Goodby - for we must part.
Dear Mother, symbolized by art,
My school these years,
When I would listen you have held my heart,
And when I hurt, you touched my tears.
Fix deep this picture of yourself within my gaze:
This anxious marble smile.
I need the memory of these days
When we could sit and talk awhile.
Then will I learn the lesson of this rock so hewn,
Which says to me today:
"The boy is always man too soon,
You must not go away."

Mr. McGough. S.I.. recovers an algebraic fumble by members
"Men of 3-A arise!" This has become the rallying
call for all true, red-blooded members of our class.
As you can see, our course of studies has affected
us immensely. For in some way, each subject has
made this cliche appropriate. In ethics it was the
life of Christ: in English the perpetual struggle to
produce themes: in Greek the tales of Odysseus: in
Latin the Catilinarian Conspiracy: in math the fruit-

proved our ability to express ourselves through the

the glory that was Greece: and Mr. McGough, who
unfolded the mysteries of the "unknowns" for us.

lated by 3-C that would
astound even Einstein.
After math. we proceed
to the atomic testing

ed a few casualties, Mr.
Stackable sends us on our way to our English class.
If our grammar "ain't" quite right, it is quickly
brought up to par by Fr. Hussey. 3-C then heads for
its true spiritual home - the cafeteria. After eating
everything edible, in addition to a variety of other
things, we enter into the Roman Era with Mr. Mc-
Kendrick. After listening to Cicero bawling out some
Roman "hood" for a half hour or so we entrain for
the last class - speech. Since everyone has been
excused from speaking because of a cold, we spend
this period waiting for the bell which, when it does
ring, is the signal for the elephant stampede to begin.
Our class is really a crossroads of the school. We
have our share of the athletes, an ample sufficiency
of comics, a few would-be Don Iuans, and even
some students. But, whatever classification you use,
one thing is true of every real member of 3-C: he is
your friend, he is interested in you, he would do
anything for you . . . What more could anyone ask?

This is the school! There are over a thousand stu-
dents here. I was working the day watch on sopho-
more classes. My job . . . cover 2-A from 9:30 until
2:35. Arrived on the job at 9:32 A.M., before most
of the class. The first period was a course in Amer-
ican History, which was taught by Mr. Madigan.
Next class is geometry where Mr. Sartor daily encour-
ages the support of this charming Greek remnant.
As lunch time rolled around I found 2-A fthe terror
of the intramural leaguel on top of the pack.

cealed as a wastebasket to avoid discoveryl. Mr.
Mulhem starts the afternoon off teaching the dread

I found that, as a whole, the class has a
great spirit and quite a sense of humor

As the final bell rings there is a mad dash

port, I underlined the fact that 2-A is the
best room in the second year without any
trace of a doubt. CASE CLOSED.

All 2-C is divided into two parts: lunch period and
classes. Of these parts the first is inhabited by the
students, impeded by their lunches: the second by
the teachers. Of all our teachers none are very brave
for the students often ask them questions they cannot
answer. On the other hand the students are very
brave for they are continually waging war with
their enemy, and seem never to tire of asking ques-
tions - any questions. The teachers, who occupy
the front of the room, are, of course, the enemy.
The classroom of 2-C is held in on all sides by walls,
and its inhabitants are often striving to go out of
that encumbered place to the lunchroom where they
may more easily wage war with their enemy. Most
of the time they are prevented from making a run
for it by fear of jug. Sometimes, however, those who
are desirous of the glory of reaching the lunchroom
are captured enroute by enemy patrols. Others do
infiltrate through the lines and arrive in the desired
position. They are greeted by the legions of the
enemy. These forces often seize hostages for the
purpose of cleaning up the
territory commonly referred
to as the lunchroom. Ulti-
mately the students are driv-
en back to their encumbered
positions and generously
provided with homework.

Our class day is a very busy one. A lot of the men
in our class start every day at Communion Mass.
Our first class is Latin with Mr. Urmston in the cock-
pit. Most of us liked Latin until it carne time to meet
Caesar and the ablative absolute. Latin yields way
to geometry which most of us enjoy as Mr. Verhelle
keeps us busy and still adds a little touch of humor.
The next period is the period every growing boy
enjoys - lunch. After that comes ethics, gym, or
speech. Mr. Daqenais enters now and does a fine
job of teaching us our own language - we all like
him. Next we go to Mr. Madigan's class of history.
Ot course, we start oft the class with a little humor.

The 1-A freshman class of
'55 is well noted for its out-
standing men. Whether on
the playing-field, in the class-
room, or in chapel, l-A men
rank tops. In Intramural and
Freshman football, basket-
ball, and baseball, 1-A men
display unmatched ability.
We always take home honors earned by the extra
"go-power" we put in our schoolwork. Many of us
distinguish ourselves as Sodalists. Since all 1-A men
are of such high caliber, it was indeed difficult to elect
a class president. Mike McGough ably holds the office.
At present we cannot name the "bestest" of the best
in regards to scholastic and athletic achievement: but
of one thing we are certainedwin by a large margin or
just make it under the wire Cwe never losel, each and
every one of us will be fighting all the way.
If up to now this has sounded pretty dry and serious,
don't get us Wrong: we kid around a lot too. Many are
the times that an unvsiary prefect finds an eraser whizz-
ing past his head. We hope to correct such unfortunate
circumstances by perfecting our aim. In the meantime
our pet project is procuring spectacles of the Venetian
"blinds". By playing hard, working hard, and praying
hard, we hope to one day make the faculty proud to
recall to mind class "1-A of '55".

I think our class is the best in the school, and I'm
sure everyone else in l-C thinks so too. Our scholar-
ship marks were not very good in the beginning,
and we had a little trouble adjusting ourselves: but
time and hard work took care of that.

ball team, and we had one excellent swimmer and
a very good debater. U. of D. held its first Frosh

new ways of getting jugged. Collins was first in line
to copy Colosimo's homework as Coury and Hogan
were engaged in mortal combat. Cusick was still
sleeping. Donnelly was absent mindedly marking
up his arm with his ball pont pen. Flavin and F ahner
were busily making paper wads while Fogliatti,
Freeman, and Granowicz were peppering Zanetti,
Sellers, and Wilczak, who were doing their best to
retum fire. Hershey was practicing drums on House's
head while Kavanaugh and Kolasa were flipping
pennies. Wozniak was trying to borrow O'Rei11y's
pen, which Wrona had already gotten. Uicher was
recovering from the eraser which had just bounced
off his head towards Bommarito and Vanderslice
who were engrossed in a game of chess, which
neither knew how to play. Mullet, Tucci, and Zaroff
were engaged in a fierce poker game. Zook was
carefully constructing a paper airplane and Cobb
and Taylor were listening to Udry's history talk
while Rinn gave him a hot foot.

They tell us school-work is easy. Our English teach-
er, Mr. Streicher, has told us that English is one of
the easiest things in the world if you just study. His
Friday exams prove to be somewhat difficult if you
don't. Fr. Decker, our Latin and ethics teacher, with
his three-foot long ruler, has told us anybody who
wants to learn Latin and puts his mind to it - can.
He doesn't give much homework but when he does,
brother, look out! Our algebra teacher, Fr. McLaugh-
lin, has told us many times that we can learn
algebra by listening to explanations and following
examples. Mr. Kildes, our history teacher, has so
often told us the only way to get history is to read
and comprehend what is read.
But it hasn't been as easy as all that. It has been
work, and yet we of 1-F have had our share of fun
too. All work and no play was not the order of our
day. We took part in intramural sports and had a lot
of fun with each other. We hope to be together next

Mr. Arbogast admires the products of the creative genius of 1-G
In the class of l-G there
are thirty-six sturdy young
men eager to gain knowl-
edge. To help us in our
endeavor we have four
capable teachers: Fr. Hut-
tinger for Latin and ethics,
Mr. Sartor for algebra, Mr.
Arbogast for history, and
Mr. Streicher for English.
In our Latin class we
learned to speak as the Romans spoke. If we didn't
learn it one way from Fr. Huttinger, we learned it
another way from his constant companion, Sebas-
tian. The history course was Medieval History and
showed how lucky we are to be living these days.
In algebra we learned about equations, polynomials,
and factoring as the Arabs developed them years
ago. In English we read "Treasure Island" and wrote
compositions about it.
However, 1-G didn't spend all its time with school
work. We had representatives in the Freshman So-
dality, on the football team, on the debate team, in
the Glee Club, and at least one member in the

The education of a boy requires a lot
more than teachers cmd a school. It
is a twenty-four hour a day job and a
seven day week. The Mothers' Club
here at the U. of D. High realizes this
and works in active cooperation with
the school in the training of their sons.
On the first Tuesday of every month
the Mothers gather with their Moder-
ator, Fr. Iames Farrell, S.I. to have a
business meeting. After the meeting the
teachers come in and confer with the
mothers individually on the progress or
lack thereof of the boys. Together, more
often than not, explanations of poor
work can be worked out and some
Each month the mothers have a draw-
ing and award a year's scholarship to
one of their members. They have taken
an active interest in the new buildir1g
that is going on, contributing the pro-
ceeds of their Gala Nite Dance to the
furnishing of several rooms in the new

A large part of the University of
Detroit High School campus is a monu-
ment to the constant support and inter-
est of the Dad's Club. The Gym was a
dream until a group of the Dads de-
cided to make it a reality. The Iesuit
Faculty residence and connecting wing
was also a dream which is now mater-
ializing due to the determination of our
Dads. They have realized that a Cath-
olic education is a necessity and have
taken the required means to insure it.
At their last meeting one half of the
entire expenses for the new additons
had been acquired.
It would be unfair, however, to list
only their business connection with the
school. How well we remember the
numbers of them who stood in the rain
throughout the Fordson game. They
sponsor one of the biggest social events
of the year, the Harvest Party. Together
with Reverend I. Robert Koch, S.I. and
Fr. Peter L. Decker, SJ., the Dads are
out to see that we have the best High
School in the city.

The Sophomore Sodalists gather in the study hall for their weekly meeting.
Its drive spearheaded by its three able prefects:
Dick Hull, Iohn Azar, and Frank Cody, the sophomore
Sodality has swung into action. This year led by Fr.
Middendorf and Mr. Dagenais, the sophomore sodalists
have stressed the lay apostolate - a main part of
Sodality work. Among the first to benefit from this were
the needy families of Our Lady of Victory and St.
Boniface Parishes, through Christmas baskets packed
and delivered by sophomore sodalists. The Sophomore
Sodality has not neglected the home front either. Few
here at school have not noticed the Sodality's constant
sponsoring of the Advent Rosary, Lenten devotions.

An important part of going to U. of D. High for four years is going to Manresa
for three days. As in former years the seniors again made closed retreats in
five groups. This Iesuit retreat house, situated on forty rolling acres in Bloom-
field Hills, is impressively quiet. But then the site is only an aid, a crutch, in the
work of the retreat itself. Each group of seniors under the direction of its retreat
master made the spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Each young man found
these Exercises together with God's grace conducive to union with Him and
Retreats are superlatively unaustentatious. They are not the delight of
the camera man. Still, pictured here for memory's sake, are a few scenes
from Manresa. No date on a U. of D. High senior's calendar was more important
in bustling '54-'55 than his meeting with Christ, the King, in retreat. This each

The real purpose of the yearly retreat is to give time for a fellow to get better acquainted with his Maker.
From the first day at the U. ol D. High boys are made to realize
that this world has one more than three dimensions - a spiritual
dimension. Their day begins with the great prayer of the Mass and is
punctuated by frequent prayers before and after class.
The year itself reaches its climax in the annual retreat. During
this three day period the school suspends academic activities. The
usual class-day noises give way to silence. The chapel is the center
of operations where several times a day conferences are given to
help the young man arrive at some decision concerning his present
and future life. It is a time of intense though silent activity. This year
the directors: Fr. Charles Sullivan, SJ. and Robert Hinks, SJ. led the
underclassmen to Palestine and introduced them again to Iesus Christ.
The students talked to Him, they asked what He would have them
to do - and they finished the retreat resolved to do it.

If you were to take a poll of the favorite rising hour of
the average U. of D. High boy you would probably
find that it is more often the afternoon than the moming.
It is with this in mind that the rest of us may well
stand in awe of the acolytes of our school. Whatever
the weather, whatever the distance, whatever the time
- they are here daily to help the priest renew the
Sacrifice of Calvary. Father Henry makes the assign-
ments and at 6:15 or so the next moming the boys
begin to arrive. They are acolytes - servants of Christ.

promises of less homework, we even had a concert and
a special basketball game - all with the same end
in view: global conquest.
Yet when we pause for a moment to think we
realize that this collection is not just a game to while
away a class aftemoon, that Father doesn't particularly
enjoy trudging up and down the corridors, that no
one enjoys begging: we recognize, in short, that this
is a rather serious ten minutes in the week. For it is
in these few moments that we do our share to provide

The U. of D. High Victory Band of 1954 gained
renown throughout the school and city as the
only band in Detroit to play at all its school's
football games. From the stands behind the
school, to massive Briggs Stadium, the Victory
Band followed the team, serenading it on to
victory. Under the very capable leadership of
Father Linz, the band council, the captain
Fred Crane, and the drum major Ernie Krafft,
the marching band entertained football fans
with music-filled half-times. Among the selec-
tions played by the band. Lady of Spain, Over
the Rainbow, and the famous "March Man-
euver" were the most popular. With seventy-
two members acting as one, the band marched
and played its way to success.

THE 1955 U of D HIGH GLEE CLUB
"I'll never bawl you out for singing the wrong note . . .
sometimes. IUST SING!" In these words Father Linz
declares the basic theme cmd motto of the Glee Club.
Father started the organization soon after his arrival
at the U. of D. High and has made it a going concern
ever since. The C1ub's activities have varied between
concerts and musical comedies. This year the club
returned to the Concert type program.
The purpose of the Club is more than simply providing
entertainment for itself and the school. It is a part of
the education of the members, teaching them consist-
ency, responsibility, and cooperation. On Sunday, May
22nd, the songsters presented a concert designed to
please the ears of all. Their success followed naturally
from their spirit and enthusiasm which they showed
throughout the year

With the assistance and coaching of Fr.
Samuel F. Listermann, SJ., who is in his first
year as speech coach in our school, the squad
had a very successful season, despite a difficult
schedule. It had a sufficient number of victories
to qualify for the State Eliminations and was
awarded a plaque for outstanding performance.
While the regular varsity debaters were
doing so well in the interscholastic debates, the
others of the varsity squad held a few practice
debates and discussions at early moming meet-
ings. The usual intramural debate toumament
was rejected this year by both the debaters and
the moderator, in favor of other speech activ-
ities. The nucleus of a fine debate team is cer-
tainly formed, next year we look for still greater

Hap! rap! rap! And with the knock of that gavel
upon the rostrum, another year of Iunior debating
comes to a close. The topic debated was: "Resolved,
that the United States should initiate a policy of free
trade among nations friendly to the United States."
The majority of the debates were intramural and took
place in the speech room every Thursday moming.
Some of the more experienced debaters, like Varsity
Squad members, Chet Mateja and Louis Fortunate,
however, debated with other schools in the Metropol-
itan and State Leagues.
As Fr. Listerman, the indefatigable director of the
speech activity said it would, debating has increased
our self-confidence, improved our habits of study, and
given us experience in the use of logic.
This year's debate topic: "Resolved that the United
States should adopt a policy of free trade toward na-
tions friendly to the United States," was brilliantly
handled by such Sophomore teams as Vansen and
Mackillop who, defending the negative, defeated Austin
High: and Canfield and Anderson: and Bridenstine and
Clarke who pounded the rostrum for the affirmative.

Thus the Physics Club serves a double purpose:
it instructs in an extremely interesting field - explana-
tion of matter and energy: it provides a natural outlet
for the curiosity which has been stirred up in recent
years with the development of the atomic bomb and
the growth of the age of the same name.
To put a little color into their studies Mr. Stepaniak
took his members on tours of several plants around the
city: Plymouth Corp.: Editor Co.: Bell Telephone Co.:
Ethyl Corp.: Carboloy. Here they witnessed the practical
application of the laws and theories of mechanics,
hecrt, light, sound, electricity, and the structure of the
atom and saw how they are utilized for the betterment

Ancient Greece and Home lived again in the work of the
Classical Club this year. Since only those students of senior
Latin and Greek with more than mere class-time interest com-
posed the Club, the members were able to cover much with
Mr. Charles H. Giblin, S.I. as guide to the past. During the first
semester, activity was confined to preparatory work in Cicer-
onic translation and imitation for the annual Inter-scholastic
Latin Contest. Then for two hours on December 7, this group
of six 4A men translated a selection from Newman's Idea of
a University into Ciceronic and for two more hours labored at
Cicero's De Divinatione. After Christmas, these same students
launched into the study of Homer's Iliad in the original Greek
during the daily breakfast period. Soon, the Club enlarged
when a number of interested juniors and seniors joined to
study the works of Horace, Cicero, and the Greek comedians
and dramatists. In conjunction with the speech classes, the
senior members even produced and presented their own trans-
lations into modem English of popular passages of Thucydides'
Peloponnesian Wax. For the entire year, by means of transla-
tion, appreciative study, and discussion on their own free time,
the members of the Classical Club discovered for themselves
why the Greek and Latin classics have endured to the present.

Anyone who has ever attended a football or basket-
ball game knows that half of the fun is the shouting.
This being so, we realize the importance of they cheer-
leaders. Their exuberance and untiring efforts are
partly responsible for our teams' fine successes. Always
there, when both team and student body needed them
they helped spark many a touchdown, "two-pointer",
and pep rally. Living up to another fine trait of the
U. of D. Hi man, they never failed, at half time to
fraternize with our opposing school's cheerleaders.

Without a doubt, the Student Senate has achieved its finer purpose, to foster
and sponsor school activities. This year the Senate's moderator was our assist-
ant principal, Fr. I. I. Miday, SJ. From September to Iune the Senate has
planned and executed its assignments. For the first time in the school's history,
a council between the four major high-schools in our area was made, the
Quad-High Council. The sale of tickets and ushering at all sporting events
were cared for by the Senate. Our Annual Holly Hop and Gala Nite were also
accomplished through the Senate's efforts. Rallies were conducted and music
was furnished in the cafeteria after the purchase of an F-M tuner by the Senate.
These are only a few of the multiple accomplishments of the Senate. The
officers for the Senate were: lim Foster, President: Ed Draves, Vice-President:

Senior, 170 lb., 6 ft. end, Ierry

of the '53 season to become a

and pass receiving ability
greatly increased the team's

his alertness by picking up two
fumbles for touchdowns against
Pershing. He hopes he has the
same success in studying law
at Michigan that he did this
year in football.
U of D 32
In this year's opener. the Cubs were out to avenge last year's 6-0 loss
to the Huskies. It was that defeat which broke the Cubs' back. But this year
it was a different story. The boys completely outplayed the Redfordites on
their way to success. On the second play from scrimmage, Bruce Maher took
a pitch-out from quarterback lim Foster and scooted 13 yards for the first
touchdown of the season. Lodish converted. After an exchange of punts Connors
went off tackle for 60 yards in two carries and put U.D. within striking distance.
Again taking a pitch-out off the "belly" series, Maher sprinted the remaining
12 yards and U.D. lead 13-0. Lodish's kick was good.
In the opening minutes of the second quarter Maher reeled off runs of
20 and 21 yards and then Connors banged to the 1. From there Foster took the
pigskin across. As the half ended the score board read 20-0.
In the third period Redford put up a defensive stand and held the
rampaging Cubs to one first down. Connors and Maher again carried the bmnt
of the Cub attack, but the inspired Redford line stiffened and held. However,
in the middle of the last stanza Foster tossed a 24 yard pass to end, Ierry
Barlow, who scampered across the goal line. Lodish's attempt was blocked.
After a 15 yard penalty, lim Lozon, the Redford quarterback, decided to try a
pass, although his three previous attempts through the air had been intercepted
by Maher. This time an alert Bob Kaump picked off the Redford pass and
dashed 30 yards unmolested for the Cubs' fifth and final touchdown.
In shutting out Redford, Coach Bob Tiernan's hustling squad handed
the Huskies their first shut-out in 34 games. U.D. had defeated them 7-0 in
the second game of the 1949 season.
. A ., in
U of D
In the only night game of the season, the exuberant Cubs took on a
highly rated Fordson ll. The Tractors were prepared to plow Coach Tieman's
outfit under: the boys had other ideas. Fordson had a lot to offer, as they had
been picked for the Border Cities' championship. and were currently ranked
fourth in the state. However, the Cubs were not to be ignored, for they were
placed sixth in the state, and by defeating Redford, they stamped themselves
top West Side contender for the Metropolitan League championship. But no-
body planned on the weather.
The rain started in the opening seconds as U.D. kicked off to Fordson
in one of the state's top ten games of the week. On the second play from
scrimmage Al Bardell of Fordson flipped a l2 yard pass to Dick Weigant,
Tractor co-captain, good for a first down. Utilizing the famed Michigan single
wing attack, the Dearborn squad pushed to mid-field where they were forced
to punt. Moe DesRosiers hustled the ball to the 23. And the rain came down.
Mud held down both teams, and the ball changed hands a number of
times, with neither team doing much. Late in the second quarter, largely on
the efforts of Connors and Desltosiers, the Cubs splashed to the four yard line
of Fordson. After two running plays failed, Foster cleverly faked a hand-off
to Maher and dropped back to pass. DesRosiers gathered in the slimy ball for
a touchdown. The half ended with the score 6-0 as Lodish's kick was blocked.
And the rain came down.
The second half opened spectacularly when Connors retumed the kick-
off 56 yards. The U.D. drive stalled and Fordson took over. After a few plays
Fordson Coach Mike Megregian used a bit of strategy. Hoping the Cubs would
fumble, he elected to punt on second down. The plan worked, and moments
later Dick Cuit slithered into the end zone for the equalizer. The kick was
blocked, and the game ended. And the rain came down.

One of the hardest-running
backs on this year's team was
this fighting Irishman. lack was
slowed down this year by a
knee injury, but despite this
fact, he displayed unquestion-
able ability. In two seasons for
the varsity, he gained 1000
yards and scored 9 touchdowns.
His lifelong ambition has been
to play ball for Notre Dame.
In the Cub attack speedy,
aggressive guards are an essen-
ital factor. Pat fills the bill per-
fectly. Although weighing only
163 lbs., this senior held the
respect of every other player
he met. He handled the de-
fensive linebacker spot and
called defensive signals most
capably. One of the most popu-
lar men on the campus, Pat's
ambition is to be an aeronauti-
"Ox" is U. of D.'s answer to
a "hard-luck kid". Last year he
broke his right leg early in the
season. His bad luck continued
this year when he broke his
right ankle. Steve, co-captain
and senior, played on the '52
Goodfellow Team, and would
have seen regular action if not
for his mishaps. At 6 ft. and 205
lbs., he hopes to play college
football and study dentistry at
the University of Detroit.
Considered by observers the
most improved player on the
team, "Mac", a tackle, will be
back to greatly improve next
year's chances for another
championship. The 190 lb., 6
footer plans on conditioning
himself for next fall by doing
construction work during the
summer. This husky junior
hopes to attend Notre Dame or
Michigan and study Engineer-

For their next tilt, the Cubs returned to U. of D.'s own back yard to take
on a highly rated Northwestern team. Some said the winner of this contest
would definitely emerge a West Side title favorite, and popular city opinion
seemed to be with the Colts. However, a determined Cub squad set out to
prove that they had been underestimated.
Northwestern elected to receive. Cordell, Colt halfback, fumbled on the
second play, and Draves pounced on the ball. On the first play from scrimmage,
Foster handed off to Connors, who lateraled to Maher, the play was good for
22 yards. Then Connors repeated, this time blasting over from the six. End,
Mike Lodish, converted and the score was 7-0. Northwestern got nowhere after
the kickoff and were forced to punt. Maher gathered it in and rumbled 70 yards
for the Cubs' second touchdown in less than two minutes. Northwestern started
a drive after the kick-off, but again a Colt fumbled, and Barlow recovered.
Connors then moved the ball 48 yards in three tries to set up the next touch-
down. Maher took it over from the seven, and Lodish again converted.
U. D. kept control of the ball during the entire second quarter and moved
down the field. Foster completed four out of five passes, and put the ball in
scoring position. This time it was DesRosiers scoring on an eight yard dash.
The half ended with the score 26-0.
The third quarter was a repeat of the second, with U.D. again controlling
the play. The entire backfield combined to march down the field where Foster
passed to DesRosiers for the fifth touchdown of the game. Lodish faked the
kick, and Foster passed to Maher for the extra point. ln the final period, Erdman
reeled off 55 yards and set up Marks' seven yard score. Lodish converted to
make the final score 40-0.

After the Cubs routed Northwestern, they were picked as favorites on
the West Side. Central was detennined to derail the Cubs' "championship
express" and boasted that they had the solution to the potent U.D. attack.
The game started in a slight drizzle, which did not hinder play. On an
unusual play, Iohn Young carried the ball and picked up 31 yards. A few
plays later quarterback lim Foster flipped a 9 yard pass to DesRosiers, but
the U.D. field general was injured on the play. After two penalties were asf
sessed against the Cubs, Connors sprinted 17 yards for the first score of the
game. Lodish split the uprights and the Cubs led 7-0. The game seesawed
back and forth until early in the second period when Deshosiers broke loose
for a 40 yard jaunt and another touchdown. However, three plays later Ron
Little eluded the Cub defense and stonned 62 yards up the middle to break
the Cubs' unscored upon record. They added the extra point and that's the
way the half ended, 13-7.
In the third period, the Cubs, sparked by Connors and DesRosiers moved
into pay dirt, with Desltosiers carrying the ball the last seven yards. A few
plays later, Ed Draves blocked the Trailblazers' punt and a Central player
recovered it behind his own goal line for a U.D. safety. On the opening play
of the fourth quarter, Maher ran 18 yards for another U.D. score, and Lodish
booted the point. This completely sank Central, and the game ended, 28-7.
Linemen who stood out were end, Mike Lodish, who sparkled on defense
and converted twice, and guards, Iohn Young and Phil Smith, who laid key
blocks. The game also saw Tom McCarthy capably fill the shoes of lim Foster,
who was injured early in the game.
The little, forgotten man who
did a big unforgettable job.
These words sum up how peo-
ple feel about Phil's terrific
blocking and tackling. "Smitty"
joined the varsity last year af-
ter transferring from St. Louis
University High School. Few
people outside of his teammates
realize how valuable this 5 ft.
10 in., 170 lb. guard was. An
ardent sodalist, he is as strong
a man off the field as on.
1 1 f
Son of a football alumnus of
U. of D. high, this big junior
was instnunental in the many
victories of this year. Mike, a
6 ft. 1 in. giant, looks forward
to another successful year at
center. No matter where he
plays he will surely turn in a
better than average perform-
ance for the '55 Cubs.
"Feets" will always be re-
membered for his great run
against Mackenzie. One of the
toughest men on the team to
bring down, Bill is built like a
tank. A popular man from
Grosse Pointe, he was one of
three top-rate fullbacks on the
squad. Everyone will agree that
Bill has excellent sportsmanship
both on and off the field. He
plans to enroll at Iohn Carroll
University next fall.
"Big while playing vars-
ity ball only one year, proved
himself one of the most valu-
able men on the team. Weigh-
ing 225 lbs. and standing 6 ft.

called him, could always be
counted on for a great game.

second string All-State to prove
his ability. His ambition is to

The Mackenzie Stags were the next victims of the rampaging Cub
eleven. Again playing in their own back yard, the Maron and White Marauders
treated their guests to a display of tremendous offensive and defensive power.
The game started on even terms until DeMattia intercepted a pass on
the Stag 40. Connors and DesRosiers teamed up to move the ball down to the
1, where Connors plunged over for the first score of the game. Lodish converted.
Soon after the kickoff, the Stags, picking up only 4 yards in three tries, punted
to Connors. Aided by good blocking, the Cub backs moved the ball to within
scoring distance. Maher skirted right end into the end zone where he was hit
hard and fumbled. However, end Barlow pounced on the ball for a touchdown.
Again Lodish converted, and the score was 14-0.
Two sensational runs brought the Cubs their next two touchdowns.
Deslilosiers took the ball on his own twenty and outmaneuvered the entire
Mackenzie team going all the way. Shortly thereafter, McCarthy was trapped
behind the line, but spotted Marks open on the sidelines. Marks grabbed the
short pass and bulled his way 55 yards for another touchdown. At the end of
the half the score was 26-0.
Early in the third period, DesRosiers intercepted a Stag pass and
rambled 35 yards for his second touchdown of the game. McCarthy passed to
Maher for the extra point. Mackenzie fumbled the kickoff, and Nowicki re-
covered for U.D. A few plays later, Wiktor went 3 yards for a touchdown.
Lodish split the uprights for his third extra point of the game. McCarthy took
to the air and picked up 63 yards on three passes, including a two yard pass
to Conroy for the touchdown. The next score was set up by an interception by
Erdman. Nowicki plunged over from the 1, and the final score was 52-0.

On October 28th the Cubs took on winless Cody, a newcomer to the Metro-
politan League. Taking advantage of this fact, Coach Tiernan showed Cub
partisans his vaunted bench strength.
The Cubs got off to a fast start. Cody kicked off and the Cubs toola
over. On the first play Maher sped 30 yards for a first down. Not to be outdone,
DesRosiers raced 37 yards, and the Cubs were ahead to stay. Lodish added
the extra point. After an exchange of punts, DesRosiers recoved a Comet
fumble on the 12 yard line. On the next play, Maher carted the pigskin into
the endzone, but it slipped from his grasp. However, Smith fell on it and scored
the annual 1ineman's touchdown. Lodish's kick was good. Cody could do
nothing with the ball and was forced to punt. Maher took the ball 15 yards
and DesRosiers went for 40 and 26 yards, the latter run being good for a
touchdown. The Cubs lone marker in the second period of play came as a
result of McCarthy's 45 yard pass to Barlow. Lodish converted, making the
score at the half, 27-0.
The Cubs were held scoreless in the third period. However, Rog Nowicki
distinguished himself as a capable replacement for the injured lack Connors.
Nowicki can'ied the ball on four successive tries and picked up 43 yards. In
the opening minutes of the fourth quarter the Cubs were momentarily stalled
by a 15 yard clipping penalty. Maher and Lodish each picked up a first down
before Maher went over for a touchdown. Nowicki started the final drive of the
game with a 24 yard off-tackle play. Then Maher took over and went for nins
of 25, 8, and 1 yard and scored the final touchdown of the game. Lodish's kick
was good and the game ended with the Cubs on the long end of a 40-0 score.
Co-captain, All-City, and a
great guy, "Moe" fought hard-
est when the chips were down.
Thought of merely as a de-
fensive back, he scored 12
touchdowns in the fight for the
championship. Playing with an
injured leg in the Goodfellow
Game was typical of his spirit
throughout the season. Ambi-
tious "Moe" aims to become a
pre-medical student at Creight-
Iohn, having had no previous
varsity experience, proved him-
self as one of the best guards
tumed out by Coach Tieman.
Built close to the ground, this
193 pounder stands 5 ft., 9M in.
Slighted in the post-season foot-
ball honors, Iohrmy, possessing
a 93 plus average in the Classi-
cal course, will undoubtedly
graduate with scholastic honors.
Ambition is law.
The most famous of all Cub
gridders, this junior pulled in
first string All-City and All-State
honors. Standing 6 ft. ZW in.
and weighing 205, the "Lcd"
excelled in the fundamentals of
blocking and tackling. The big
end will be back next year to
anchor the Cub line. He and
Ierry Kronk have been elected
C0-captains for next season.
One of the unsung heroes,
this scrappy junior improved
much during the progress of the
season. Standing 5 ft. 10 in. and
weighing a bulky 185, lohn was
groomed at the defensive end
spot. Should be much better
next year. Iohn was high scorer
on the Varsity basketball tearn
and is also an excellent golfer
and baseball player.

After steam rolling over five previous opponents this season, the Cubs had all
they could handle from the Cowboys of Western, who had won only one of
five previous games. Western riddled the Cubs' vaunted line for repeated gains
throughout the game and only their pass defense corps and numerous Westem
fumbles and pass interceptions saved the Cubs from disaster. On four different
times during the game Western put on drives only to have fumbles halt them.
The Cubs started off with what looked like a repetition of many of their
other games when they recovered a Westem fumble on the first play. In three
plays Bog Nowicki went over. Lodish converted, but that was the last the
Cubs saw of the ball in the first quarter. Westem then moved the ball through
the Cub line on short gains, the longest run being 6 yards by Elias. However,
on the first play of the second quarter Maher stopped Westem with his inter-
ception. McCarthy took to the air and heaved a pass to Desflosiers good for
47 yards. He then hit Lodish with a nine yard pass and put the Cubs within
striking distance. On the next play, Deslitosiers skirted left end for 26 yards
and a touchdown. Lodish's kick was good, and the half ended with the score
Westem held the edge for the remainder of the game but wasn't able
to hit paydirt until the final quarter when Gus Barrera intercepted a U.D. pass
on our 32. A few plays later Elias scored, but the game ended 14-6.
This victory assured the Cubs of a tie with Mumford for the West side
championship. Who would meet the East side champion would be decided at
a board meeting the following week. U.D. was picked and marched into U.D.
Stadium with a lofty fourth place state rating.

U.D., the West Side Champ, met Pershing, the East Side kingpin, before a
crowd of 12,000 at U.D. Stadium on November 12. Although the Cubs had lost
three first team men in the persons of lim Foster, lack Connors, and Steve
Ostrowski earlier in the season, they had been able to overcome this handicap.
That night the Cubs were to be put to their severest test.
U.D. kicked off to Pershing who brought the ball back 30 yards. How-
ever, the Doughboys were unable to get a first down and Fred Iulian booted
a 50 yard punt. A few plays later, Maher broke loose for 50 yards, and put
the ball within striking distance. Three plays later, Deslitosiers took the ball
over from the 4 and Lodish added the extra point.
Taking advantage of Pershing's misplays, U.D. tallied three times in
the second period. Maher scored the first one on a short run of 3 yards. Two
plays later, end Ierry Barlow stole a Doughboy handoff and dashed 20 yards
for another touchdown. Bill Marks scored the third in an unusual sequence of
plays. He scored once, but the Cubs were penalized for illegal assistance. The
following play, Pershing interfered with a Cub pass, and were penalized 15
yards, bringing the ball back to the one. This time Marks made it, and Lodish
converted. At the end of the half, the Cubs led 26-0.
Play see-sawed back and forth in the quarter, but neither team scored.
In the fourth quarter, Erdman and Nowicki moved the ball down to the goal
line, where Erdman scored. Lodish's kick was good. Pershing averted a shut-
out when Lou Robinson went 17 yards for a Doughboy score. In the closing
minutes of the game, Barlow recovered Iulian's fumble on the U.D. 28 yard
line, and went all the way for the score. The final score was U.D. 39, Pershing 6.
Marks blasts hole into the end zone for a TD against Pershing.
One of the main reasons why
the Cubs won the city cham-
pionship, Tom took over the
quarterbacking reins from the
ailing Foster after the North-
western game. The 6 ft., 175
pounder promptly showed him-
self as an expert passer, good
ball handler, and fine leader.
Throughout the season, his first
on varsity, he threw 21 out of
30 attempts good for 400 yards.
His faking and generalship
stood out especially in the
Bruce was a man who always
fought and fought hard. lf some
one were to ask you which
game he played best you would
have to say all of them, for he
never let down. Weighing 180
lbs., "fuce" was a halfback with
terrific broken field running
ability. He made first string All-
City. Bruce plans to play foot-
ball for Wisconsin where he is
going to study.

For the second time in three years, the Cubs met the Rustics oi St. Mary's
of Redford in the 15th annual Goodfellows' Game. A crowd of 33,000 was on
hand to witness this battle between the two top teams in the city.
U.D. won the toss and elected to kick-oit. Furlong, Donahoo, and Stuart
combined to move the ball to midfield where St. Mary's was forced to punt.
However, Bob Kaump, playing for the injured DesRosiers dropped the ball
and O'Connor recovered on the l6. The Rustics could not move the ball past
the nine, and U.D. took over. Two plays later Bruce Maher took off for ninety
yards and the first score of the game. Lodish converted, the score was 7-0.
Following the kickoff, Brorby passed to
Furlong for a touchdown. The play cov-
ered 52 yards. Furlong ran for the extra
point and tied the game at 7-7.
Early in the second quarter St.
Mary's gambled for a first down and
lost with U.D. taking over on the oppo-
sition 30. The entire Cub backfield took
turns pushing the ball to the one yard
line where Bruce Maher scooted over
for his second touchdown of the game.
Lodish's kick was blocked. Brorby took
to the air after the kickoff and hurled a
23 yard pass to Arbanas for a first
down. Again Brorby passed, this time
to Donahoo, who went 23 yards for a
Rustic touchdown. Furlong tried to run
the extra point, but was stopped by the
Cub line inches from the goal.

Before Mr. Owen came here the rec-

The '55 Cubs staited their basketball season shortly
after the end of the extended football season. They
gave up two early games to Cooley C42-351 and Westem
155-451. Determination rather than despair set into the
Cub quintet. They threatened the Northwestern Colts
until the 4th period when the Champions sufficiently
overcame the Cubs' 7 point lead to be on top when the
final buzzer sounded. Chadsey played host to the Cubs
next and our boys came out on the short end of a
67-45 count. The stands buged for the big game of the
year: the Cubs versus C.C. However it was a sad night
for U. of D. as the Cubs were shaved, 47-46. Victory
tasted sweet to the entire student body as the Cubs
side swiped Mackenzie, 61-37. Conroy picked up 22
points in this game and 29 points as the Cubs drew
even with Southwestern, 61-61. Coach Ralph Owen's
crew became just another victim in the path of the
City Championship Cass Tech. team, but our quintet
got back in the winner's column when they turned back
Cody, 65-48. Central slowed down the Cubs' hopes of
complete recovery when they overcame the Cubs' lead
to win by one point. Our tive got back on their toes
against Redford and won, 50-33. We drew Pershing
in the Consolation Playoffs and dropped the first game,
44-36. Four seniors bowed out of high school play with
this final game: Andries, Kuras, Morrissey, and Duffy.
However, the top scorers of the individual games were
four juniors: Conroy, Lewandowski, Wiktor, and Lodish.

With the opening of the baseball season on May 6
many new faces will dot the '55 Cub lineup. Last season
the baseball team finished first on the West Side and
was finally eliminated in the semi-finals. This success
was accomplished by the cooperation of the players
and fine coaching from Winslow Goodman. However,
graduation took most of the first string diamond men.
Among the graduates were infielders Higgins, Brazil,
Wilson, McKeever, and outfielders: Forberg, Sadowski.
Turning to this season, the Cubs have a new coach
in Ralph E. Owen. There is good reason to believe the
team will improve much under his guidance. Thus far
the team has shown a good amount of spirit and
determination and ever candidate is going out 'to
eam a spot on the roster. Returning veterans include
pitchers Daar, Graham, Cybulski, and catcher Mike
Lodish, an All-State football selection. Tom McCarthy,
A1 Wortman, Mike Kuras, Ron Wiktor and Iohn Conroy
are other top rate players returning.
Included on the schedule are games with Chadsey,
Central, Northwestern, Southwestem, Cody, Westem,
Cooley, and Mackenzie. The Cubs will also play Red-
ford, a team they shellacked 9-0 last year.

With new ambition and some new talent, the Cub swimmers really
made their mark on the Metropolitan League this year. A 6-1 dual meet record
and third place in the city championships were the results of that effort. This
record is amazing in that the swimmers do not have the use of a pool for
practice and are further handicapped by the lack of a coach.

moderator Mr. Edward Mulhem, S.I., downed their first six opponents. Then,
in the last meet, the Cubs swam Denby, the perennial East Side champ, for
the sectional title. The team lost that one but an ambitious detennination fired
the swimmers through the qualifying rounds of the city championships, and
in the finals they compiled enough points to pull third place out of the grasp
of several other good teams. Their points were contributed mainly by the
seven all-city swimmers: Iohn Balint, Tom Cusick, and Bob Kroha of the second
place Medley Relay Team, and Tim Kennary, Iohn Kroha, Mike Sullivan, and
Mike Risdon of the Free Style Relay which also took second. Frank Cody's
breaststroke performance also deserves credit. Next season with practically
this same team available, the natators have an excellent chance to annex
the city title.

The Cubs may win the Tennis Championship for
the first time this season. Last year's successful 5-2
record will inspire the Cubs to capture the East Side
net title that eluded their clutches in '54. The Cubs
finished 3rd, losing close matches to both first place
Denby C2-Sl and second ranking Central t2-37. The Cubs
successfully downed Southeastem K4-ll, Pershing 64-ll,
and Cass Tech K5-Ol: they managed to edge out North-
western C3-23 and Wilbur Wright C3-25.
Helped immensely last year by star Rudy Her-
nando, all-city finalist in the cit ytournarnent, and per-
haps one of the best tennis players in the city, the Cubs
will endeavor to get along without his services, since
he transferred school at the semester. Returning to
the squad are five top-flight players: lim Foster and
Iohn Valenti, veterans of 2 years, Ieff Jennings, Mike
Hopper, and Roger Ferko. Iim Foster and Iohn Valenti
as a doubles team are hoping to go far in the dual
matches and the city tournament. Valenti and Walker
advanced to the semi-finals in doubles while Foster
reached the quarter-finals in singles. Mike Hopper and
Roger Ferko will try a hand at singles, Jennings will
probably play doubles. Over forty candidates an-
swered the call for tennis. There should be a few good
prospects in this group. Mr. Edward Mulhem, SJ., who
did so well with the swimming team, will act as mod-
erator of the '55 Cub "Netters".

The '55 Cub linksmen head into the season as present City Champions.
Last year's team, led by All-City Ioe Grace, swept through the regular dual
meet schedule in professional style. However, Grace has graduated and the
Cubs are without the services of one of the top golfers of this area. Despite
this fact, there is much optimism at U. of D. this spring. Returning are Captain
Iim Thompson and All-City Tom Skover. Other bright spots in the outlook result
from the fact that Pat Costello, ineligible last year, and Ierry Bartush are return-
ing to help out. The team is also expecting help from four outstanding prospects
in Tom Grace, Tom Morris, lim Hogan, and Bob Kroha. Carrying a record of
eleven titles in as many years under the guidance of Father Schumacher, SJ.,
the U. of D. golfers have a tremendous record to keep up with. Rackham will
be the home course and a new Metropolitan League system of scoring will be
used. At any rate, the golf situation at U. of D. looks bright for some time.

senior hopes to pace the linksmen to another '
championship. Played an end spot on the

repeat this year. While standing out in gol!

Reilly 1281 receives a pointer from Mr. Verhelle,
S.I'., as Mr. McGough, SJ., watches the battle.
Early in September some ninety candidates answered the call
for freshman football. Coaches McGough and Verhelle whip-
ped the squad through many rugged workouts and from the
looks of things their hard work paid off. The freshman team
ended the season with three wins and two losses. The most
outstanding achievement of the team was the victory over
Catholic Central. It was the first time the freshman team has
beaten a C. C. eleven in over four years. The squad was led
by Captains Hal LeDuc and Blair Moore. Outstanding per-
formers on the team were Steve Rinn, leading scoring and
leading ground gainer: defensive backs Fromhart and F ogliatti:
and lineman Hurford. The squad will place a few of its better
players on next year's varsity. However, most of the team will
need a year's experience on the reserve team.

Although the varsity basketball team was having its
troubles the reserve squad fared a bit better. Led by
Captains Pauli and Morad, the team tumed in a 4 win.
6 lost record. An interesting note is the fact that the
team outscored their opponents while winning only
forty per cent of their games. High scorers were Sulli-
van, Morad, and Balog. The squad was coached by
Mr. F rank McGough, SJ.
The frosh squad was slowed down by the lack of
height. Nevertheless, the team won five out of its
eleven games. An added handicap was the fact that
six freshmen players were moved up to the reserves
at mid-season. Several varsity prospects were discov-
ered and they will make their debut next season. The
high scorers were Blair Moore and Nomi Fredricks.

But things are changing. In fact, it isn't at all
unusual any more for a man in his thirties to
move up to the "car of cars."
There are two basic reasons for this.
In the first place, success is coming earlier now
to a far greater group of young men than in
years gone by.
And, secondly, the news of CadiIlac's remark-
able economy is spreading far and wide.
Actually, once a man feels justified in making
the initial, investment, he is economically on
pride for almost any period of years he may elect.
Upkeep is remarkably low-and few cars of
any size will run farther on a gallon of gasoline.
And when it comes to purchare price-well,
there are twelve different models of other Amer-
ican makes which actually cost more than the
Thus, it is small wonder that more and more
people in a younger a e bracket are making the
move to Cadillac. It ilas become a logical and
practical thing for them to do.
So, ifyou are ready for a Cadillac--remember
that achievement-and not age-is the criterion.

GAsgSERVICE since 1851
1. dniu 7 N
Gas service was first provided for Detroit users back in 1851.
At that time only a few homes were lucky enough to receive the
wonderful, new "illuminating gas" to replace kerosene lamps.
Today we are serving more than three-quarter million cus-
tomers in Detroit and Michigan. And the natural gas provided
is used in a great many ways . . . for cooking, water heating,
refrigerating, incinerating, clothes drying, and house heating.
Industry uses gas in a variety of processing operations.
We plan continually for the years ahead in order to provide
an adequate supply of gas for the needs of the communities
