We are sorry for any
mistakes in this year-
Some may say he had little effect around the school. But Fr. Joseph
Lechtenberg's spirit of love, even if his accomplishments went
unrecognized, undeniably affected those who were around him. He gently
changed you as his soft influence pervaded your thoughts.
You began to realize that Fr. Lechtenbergis worries about the light bill
and about influential students getting away with bullying janitors were
not the capricious worries of an aging Jesuit - but that his thoughts had
a cohesiveness, that one theme ran throughout: a concern for others. He
knew the more spent on uselessly lit lights, the more the tuition and the
harder it would be for the poorer students to come here. He was aware
that if students weren't forced to respect each others' dignity, they could
not respect their own. Most of all, Fr. Lechtenberg realized that it is in
the little things that you have to show your concern. He caused us to see
that indeed it is all the little things that add up to equal the whole, and
if the spirit of love isn't shown in these things, then it cannot be present
in the whole. If U. of D. Hi's spirit is to continue to be a loving one, Fr.
Lechtenberg's spirit must continue to be manifested in the little things.
Students and faculty have to be aware that a little remark, a glance, a
little more effort, a little smile are the things that make the spirit of U.
of D. High.
Father saw this, and because of it he knew his job didn't have to seem
important to all, that everyone needn't consider him vital, tht he didnlt
have to strike others with the force of an earthquake.
But we know that he is essential, like the wind and the sea - always
present, always at work.
Now, as Fr. Lechtenberg is in the hospital, the need is made evident
for more men around the High who know, as he does, that they don't
have to be saliently spectacular, just be there, and care.

Occurring once a year
and only for the
Seniors, the Prom is the
culmination of a social
life manufactured by
four years of effort. It's
a time for fancy cars,
frilly clothes, and
fragrancesg for dancing,
laughing and and even
at times tears. But
much much more it's a
time to say good-bye to
those close friends in an
of high school and
geared to the future. It's
the last dance in an
endless line of sockhops
and of course it's the
last chance to wonder
where Alex is while
you're eating at

Poised like lifeless pawns we waited for the
moment where this state of limbo would end.
"Would that speaker ever shut upg when would
Canfield get on with it." It seemed like an
eternity. But finally it happened. "Would the
first row of the University of Detroit High
School graduating class of 1976 please stand."
Our nervousness crackled through the air like
excited charged particles, the end had begun.
Four years of pain, bliss, misery, and joy would
end with the calling of a name, the gift of a
parchment, a few seconds of recognition.
omehow it was incomplete. Four years of
effort only to be short changed. It wasn't fair

For the second season in a row, the Cub Football team
finished with a less than impressive record fl-71. Playing
against such teams as Class A finalist Traverse City and
the consistently powerful Central Division teams, the
Cubs captured only one victory, a non-leaguer, over the
Greyhounds of St. Ladislaus, 21-0.
The Cubs started preparation for the '75 season in
early February, but they entered the season with no more
than a half-dozen returning starters from the '74 team.
The offensive squad appeared listless the entire season,
only able to score a mere 41 points. However, the Cub's
desire, dedication, and determination came out in their
persistently cossack like defensive play, which was led by
All-State Honorable Mention recipient Rick Jones. After
yielding over half of the year's total points to Brother
Rice and Traverse City, the Cubs lost the remaining
games by the average score of 17-7.
Despite the grueling, incessant practices under the
scalding August sun, constant mental errors forced
consistently bad field position throughout the season.
This problem of inexperience plagued the Cubs the entire
season, as they presented informally nearly ten points a
game to their more than grateful opponents.
Even though the Cubs were one of the best
conditioned teams of those they met, Head Coach Louis
Offer mentioned that the team was at a tremendous
disadvantage going into games with only eleven seniors.
Hopefully, in the years to come, Mr. Offer and the other
coaches will be able to construct a title-contender using a
more than seasoned group of returning lettermen as their
basis. It is with sorrow that one leaves this team, but the
joys from memories will linger forever. Maybe it's glory
that one seeks in the game, but one doesn't get up at
5:30 a.m. for three months straight in search of glory.
Despite the pig pen, the sled, Coach Vincent's down-ups,
and especially the 1-7 record, one plays football
primarily for love of the game. It is this love gained that
made it a worthwhile season, more so for those returning
who will use their matured talents and personalities in
search of the Catholic league title.
Upper Right: Al Witan looks on in anxious
anticipation. Middle: David Rye, Doug Don-
Y + , tt E, .., ?
aldson, Charles Maclntosh, and the rest of the
defense sets as the Cubs expose their awesome
ll man line. Right: Gerry Vincent and Bob
Salcnik lead the way for Mike Cammons,
waist deep in the big muddy.

With a squad that at most numbered two dozen, this
year's determined J.V. team failed to win a game.
Consisting primarily of sophomores, this team lacked the
natural talent that great numbers provide. With only a
handful of juniors, however, this team did exhibit some
brilliance. With the presence of Lance Petross, the .I.V.
team had the opportunities to let loose a feared,
explosive runner. Their defense, not unlike the varsities,
was a mobster like one that frequently buried second
guessing opponents. Despite their unimpressive record,
this team showed unity, sustained determination, and
confidence throughout their many losses. Through the
coaching of Mr. Thomas Vincent and Mr. Tony
Williams, this team fought hard and valiantly trying to
retain that bit of respect that they certainly deserved.
Above Right: The freshman defense shows a little of its punch. Far Right:
The freshman offense is set into motion after taking a kick-off. Above
Middle: J.V. defenders maui a Notre Dame opponent. Above: Lamar Davis
hammers a stifled Notre Dame opponent.
Over the past two years there has been a revelation in
fall sports at the "High.', This revelation concerns the
emergence of the mighty Jesuit Academy Football Team
as a CYO League power. The team's potency was
especially evident in its second place finish in the
division. Under the coaching of Mr. John Zybard and
Mr, Dan Osinski, the team finished with a 4-2 division
record and a 4-3 overall mark.
Using the raw talent they possessed, the J.A. Cubs
overcame their lack in numbers Conly 231 to be the best
team in the two year history of the club. With such a
successful season, one can look forward to more
successful teams to come.
Without the spirit, love, and unity which was abosrbed
throughout the season, the team might not have been so
successful. The most important thing about football is
not winning, but the experience one gains for life. The
joy and enthusiasm brought forth through the team will
help develop the football program and the lives of the
players. Through the team, they have gotten to know the
"High" or the "Academy" better and have become more
a part of the U. of D. High Community.
Freshman football was again somewhat disappointing.
Although the team finished with a 0-6-1 record, it
showed extreme power and valuable size, which, with
training can be used to its advantage next year when its
members become J.V.'s.
Coaches Mr. Ron Naski and Mr. Carl Saam put in
lots of time and effort, and they should be rewarded if
next year's J.V. team becomes a power to be reckoned
with in the Central Division. The team's offense failed to
score many points, but the defense kept the team close in
all of its games. Mr. Naski felt that the team had a lot
of talent, but he also commented that this abundance of
talent could have been used more effectively if the
players would have stuck together as a team.

After losing Jim Baumgartner and Kevin Halloran at the
end of the '75 school year only one bright spot remained and
that was Chris Knoll. Chris, who co-captained with John

"You can never go home," Thomas Wolfe said. This quote
certainly applies to the 1976 U of D High Golf Team. For 2-V2
months the flat, but green Rackham Golf Course in Royal Oak
was our home. We laughed, bogied, cussed, looked, cried, and
birdied there. We can never go back without remembering the
many times we had leaned on our drivers on the weedy first tee,
wondering what this round would bring. For each two hours on
the course, we spent countless hours pounding out golf balls.
Years of talent and effort boiled down to two hours on the
The big bad boggie man dealt us our fair share of wins and
losses. We burst into the season with an eighteen stroke pomp
over an inexperienced De La Salle. On a cold and blustery day,
we lost by one stroke to a cocky Brother Rice. Then, as though
things weren't bad enough, we lost by two strokes to Notre
Dame. Bishop Borgess survived a wildly windy day and gave us
our third loss. Right out of a Hemingway novel, it started to
rain. Then we lost again to C. C. But in the second half of the
season, we clubbed a victory out of De La Salle. On the
imaginatively rolling Oakland Hills, we dropped one in the back
door to beat a failing Brother Rice by one stroke. Then we
knocked Bishop Borgess and Notre Dame dead stiff with
victories. But we saved the dramatics for C. C. With a second
place or first place tie at stake, we turned our attention to the
Shamrocks. The U of D High Cubs fired the lowest score ever
achieved at Rackham. The C. C. boys looked as if they had
sharked a shot when they heard of the 155-158 defeat.
So the fate of the stars and our hearts led us to a three-way
play-off. The cast included Bishop Borgess, Catholic Central, an
U of D. The drive to the neutral course was long, quiet, and
tense. The first drives were under a thin cloudy sky. The time
was now. It soon was apparent that Bishop Borgess was out of
the match. The pressure built along with a chilling wind. When
we reached the ninth green, we looked at one another and knew
it was close. Disbelieving brains added the scores. The sun
popped out for the first time all day. Then the sun disappeared
along with our Catholic League title. We lost by one stroke.
Well, time will soon erase scores and matches, but our
memories will retain many more important things . . .
Who could forget Mike Billig, cigarette in mouth and magic
two wood in hand. He had an explosive sense of humor off the
course and a deadly serious attitude on the course. Mike, a
member of the 2nd All-Catholic team, must have scored more
birdies and won more skin matches than anyone else on the
team. He never lost when he played for money.
Who could forget Gary Wenstrup slaving over a 4-footer to
prevent 3-putting another green. The sweet-swinging skinny
senior was a dedicated competitor. Spending countless hours on
his "rockpile" fthe practice rangej, his dedication bordered on
obsession. The self-appointed team lesson-giver was a constant
help to all.
Who could forget Jim McCarthy. His clubs were in' perfect
order and his shoulder turn the best this side of Augusta. On the
course, Jim was a perfectionist. If he shot a record-breaker, he
would find fault with something. He never stopped working
because he was never satisfied.
Who could forget Ray Villeneuve striding into the wind
towards the first green. Ray believed he could beat Jack Nick
laus fand maybe he couldj. Ray, a member of the lst All-
Catholic team, thrived on pressure. He graduated from the Arnie
Palmer school of golf with a major in charisma. I'll never forget
the countless hours we spent practicing and spilling our golf
knowledge on each other.
Who could forget Timmy LaRoure with an unbelievably steady
swing due to that unmoveable head. Timmy must be one of the
nicest guys ever to walk the golf course. If an opponent had to
sink a ten-footer to beat Tim, and did, Tim would be the first to
sincerely congratulate him. They say that nice guys finish last.
Well, Tim will prove them all wrong in the next two years.
Who could forget David Brunning slicing his drives and
enjoying it. You could always count on Dave for a smile and a
Who could forget Mike Costello with his right-sided swing and
his deadly blade putter. Mike had a golf bag colored red from all
the blood he drew from his opponents. There were few players
that Mike didn't outplay last year. He beat half with his
sarcastic tongue and sly smile and the other half with his sharp
Who could forget Fr. Verhelle, our quiet, witty, and always
reassuring coach, standing under that tall oak tree that guards
the ninth green, meticulously adding our scores. When tempers
were hot, he cooled them. He was never too busy to listen
patiently, as we complained about that skull on the sixth hole.
So the season is over, it has been broken never to be mended.
Weive changed, and change is movement. In ZORBA THE
GREEK, Nikos Kazantzakis speaks of the past for us, "While
experiencing happiness, we have difficulty in being conscious of
it. Only when happiness is past and we look back on it do we
realize - sometimes with astonishment - how happy we were?

It's a hard act to follow when your predecessors eased
their way to the Catholic League Championship,
simultaneously capturing the love and support of the U.
of D. High community. Only one starter, Ed Moultrie,
was left from what was probably the High's best team
ever. So it was that Head Coach Mr. Dan Hafner, with
his seemingly restrained enthusiasm, attempted to build a
winner with only six seniors and a player whom he
claimed was the best in the city, Ed Moultrie.
After losing the height of both Tyrone Hunter and
Paul Kozlowski, the Cubs were forced to play a man-to-
man defense and running game in hopes of taking
advantage of their quickness and naturally good defensive
play. With only 6-3 lanky center Bill Ponkowski and a
couple of 6-4 inexperienced sophomores, the team was
usually dominated on the boards. Consequently, when
their running game lingered, the Cubs were forced into
taking bad percentage shots instead of those easier
insiders. Frequently the statistics supported this
perception, as the team came up against the glutinous
defense of Shrine and hardly hit 3073 against C.C. Yet it
can be said, as went Ed Moultrie and speedy Derrick
Mayes, so went the Cubs. If either of these two had a
bad night, it was nearly impossible for any compensation
to retain a victory.
Suprisingly, however, this young team with primarily
sophomores and juniors land one freshmanj captured
victories over Catholic League tournament teams Brother
Rice and Divine Child. CD.C. actually lost its position in
a coin flip to Shrinej The play of the underclassmen was
highlighted by sophomore Alvin Loving who was a
frequent starter in earlier games. Alvin hit for 30 against
C.C. although' the Cubs lost 96-69. These underclassmen
were used more often by Head Coach Hafner than ever
before. Attempting to instill in these players the
experience they will need, Mr. Hafner tried to get every
player into the game, whether the team was narrowly
ahead or narrowly behind.
The team did quite well, as they finished with a 10-11
overall record. Although they lost their first game in the
state play-offs, the team and especially Mr. Hafner did
an excellent job with the material available.
Appropriately, guards Ed Moultrie and Derrick Mayes
were named to many special teams by the FREE PRESS
and the NEWS. With such a suprising season finished,
the seniors can leave with many fond memories, as Mr.
Hafner again works painstakingly to develop a good and
worthwhile basketball program at the "High"

One word can sum up our season for this year - heart
breaking. Upon losing our first four games by a total of
eleven points, we got the distinct impression that a jinx
had been placed on the team. Our coach Mr. Daniels
added new plays and kept encouraging us, while Mr.
Hafner looked on, trying to figure out why we couldn't
get a much needed win. Then two of our leading
rebounders and scorers, Charles Maclntosh and James
Sessions, became varsity players. We received three
players from the Freshman team, but as fate would have
it, we were destined to a dismal season. Although we lost
many games, the team hustled, learned, and sometimes
played like a group of five desperate men. Our few fans
witnessed remarkable scoring feats by Darryl Jenkins and
Russell Richey, as well as rebounding prowess by Dan
Souphis and Eric Dunkin. Even though we didn't end up
as 41, the season was still a worthwhile one. Perhaps
some of us will aid the Varsity team of next year in their
quest for the Catholic League Title. But for those who
don't make it, there will always be those great memories
of Kevin acting to draw an offensive foul, or David
Camp getting burned on the baseline.

stalled in the C.Y.O. finals. Led by Marty Smith and
Romulus Murphy, the team frequently pasted their
opponents, although they lost a close game in the finals.

The listless Detroit sun sets on the weary U. of D. High track.
The chalk lines in the cinder will soon be upset by bursts of tiny
plants and weeds as summer arrives. If this doting oval could speak,
what would it say? The thousands of runners and gallons of sweat?
The dropped batons and fallen hurdles? And what of the 1976
season? Did anything happen?
The 1976 U. of D. High track season bloomed several times, yet
withered quicker than a rose. Sparked by the unfledged enthusiasm
of youth and guided by mature experience, the Cubs accomplished
the following: 3-3 overall dual meet record, 3-2 division record, U.
of D. High's first track State Regional Championship, and fourth
place in the Catholic League Finals.
Led by co-captains, Tony Everson and Bob Lukas, the supple
young men ran, jumped, and threw their way through spring.
Perhaps, the only valuable lesson gained from this season was the
promise of hope. The example of dedication and loyalty exhibited
by the nine seniors provided their successors with an optimistic view
of the future. With a bus load of talented freshmen, sophomores,
juniors, next season promises to be a fulfilling one. A successful
Jesuit Academy team also offers a variety of developing track men.
Under the experienced eye of head coach, John J. Tenbusch, the
76 season has laid the foundation for a brilliant tomorrow. Such a
fundation could not have been laid without the coaching abilities of
Mr. Tom Gorman S.J. and Mr. Richard Theis S.J. Many other
contributors should be thanked also, but the sun has set on the 76
track season. Once. again the promise of youth reaps hope for the

The Jesuit Academy track team began it's first year of existence by
winningthe CYO City Championship. Along the way, they also won a
divisional title with a 6-0 dual meet record and the Guardian Angels CYO
Invitational Track Meet. Ronald McDonald, Eric Ayers, and Gordon
Goodwin played key roles in the city finals by scoring in six events. The
team showed its speed by tieing or breaking the CYO record in the 50 Yard
dash, the 440 yard run, and the 880 yard relay.

This year's baseball team suffered from a lack
of experience and finished with an unimpressive
4-14 record. After suprisingly winning their first
game over a strong Warren Fitzgerald team 6-4,
the team suffered from a lack of academics to
struggle through the rest of the season. With
only five seniors on the team, there was a lack of
good hitting and pitching. The hitting was
highlighted by Pat fthe Fonzej Balaze and Bob
Salenik. Although the pitching was inconsistent,
Mike Mitzel and Joe Overall turned in fine
performances. The team worked hard under the
excellent direction of coach Mr. Dan Osinski.
Despite their bad record, the team learned much
and hopefully gained valuable experience.

A young but talented tennis squad finished
their Catholic League schedule this year with a
4-4 record. Despite having only two experienced
seniors in Hart Mecke and Bob Toal, the team
did quite well behind the consistently good play
of Dan Wheatley, Mark McGowen, Melvin
Hollowell, Pat Flaharty, and others.
After a dozen years, the principal of the
"High" finally came to watch a match. In the
presence of Fr. Canfield, the team responded
with a 4-3 victory over De LaSalle. The team
also came up against tough opponents such as
Class A-B State Champs Austin and the always
powerful Brother Rice squad. All three doubles'
teams made it to the 2nd round in the State
Reginals, while lst-2nd-3rd singles, men Dan
Wheatley, Mark McGowen and Pat Flaharty,
and the 41 doubles'team of Hart Mecke and
Melvin Hollowell put in exellent performances
throughout the season.
With the top five singles men and others
returning, next years team should be extremely
strong. Also next year Gordon Williams, a semi-
finalist in the National Junior Tennis
Tournament will be eligible as a freshman to
play on the team. With the good coaching of
Mr. Joseph Rodriguez and the abundance of
experience available, next year's team promises
to be one of the best in the High's history.

This year Varsity Bowling was revived at U. of D.
High. Mr. Richard Theis, S.J. and Mr. Chris Buryta
managed a team of qualified students to compete
against other high schools. At the end of the first
half-season the team was last in the eight team league
but moved up to sixth place at the close of the year.
Randy Elder received a trophy for the highest game in
the league, 259. Other notables were Kevin Rucinski,
157 and Bill Gerber, 167. Although it was not an
extremely successful year it was an opportunity to
compete and prepare for victories in upcoming years.
If intermural competition didn't interest you, you
could still enjoy a Friday afternoon of bowling for
52.00 at the WY-7. As can be witnessed from these
pictures, it is a time to relax and enjoy yourself.

Bright lights, a packed house, nervous

crucial moment that a Harlequin enters the
stage is only topped by the tumultuous joy
and exuberation he feels when he steps off it
for the final time.
In these past two years, I have seen a
multitude of late hours and entire Saturdays
devoted to the strengthening of a dance
number or the polishing or a scene. But these
things, as difficult and nerve-racking as they
are, all dissappear when the makeup is
applied, the costumes are adjusted, and the
imaginary curtain is drawn. It is for this
simple pleasure that the Harlequin works for.
Although only a few of us will go on to
theater in college and even fewer onto the
professional ranks, the experience gathered
here will remain in all aspects of life.
One particular moment sticks in my mind
as truly representative of the Harlequin
experience. As I labored through some half-
attempt at becoming a Landlord in THE
DRUNKARD, I turned to a fellow Harlequin
and remarked, "Is all of this worth it?" For
some the answer would be negative, yet this
individual summed up very simply a feeling
we all share. He said, "Of course - you'll
remember this work when you take your bow
- then you'll know it's been worth itf'
So this is it. The seedy curtains, the shoes
with cracked insteps, the make-up that sticks
like glue, CAROUSEL, THE DRUNKARD,
FINIAN'S RAINBOW, Buzz Collins, the
closing-night mass, the Fat Lady. They are all
behind me now. I am a Harlequin.

To examine the Harlequins this year alone
would be a dissapointingly futile attempt at
portraying a memory. Through four years, the
Harlequins provided an atmosphere of love
where personal growth was mandatory. Polo,

Zaris, Grimer, Phil, Dennis, Mrs. Crane,
K.B., and all the individuals who shared that
special love made up the real core of this
Acting: as a hobby, as a religion, as a joke,
all were given a chance to be practiced. In the
transformed - Commons - theater, many
different people for just as many different
reasons, practiced the art of "make- believe"
and learned some very important things about
themselves. For example, how would you
know that you could get up early on a
Sunday, go to a ten o'clock mass, practice,
exercise, sing, dance a couple miles, take a
dinner break, then come back and do it all
again until it looked mediocre, get home
around midnight and collapse into bed, unless
you were given a chance to try? For
whatever reason - the applause, the Fat
Lady, the parties - somehow this group
came together, loved a lot, and put on a
Maybe something was missing this year,
maybe something was added, but I know, "in
my heart of hearts" that whenever I come
back to see a Harlequin production, if the
acting fails to amaze me and the lighting and
stage crews don't astound me with technical
miracles, I will always feel the warm glow of
"love and purpose" that is ever-present during

To paraphrase from a treasured story by
a favorite storyteller: There's nothing
prettier than to be G0d's actress. There has
been nothing more enjoyable or more
important in the last four years than my
time spent with the Harlequins.
The laughter and tears, the exhilarating
feeling of opening night, the friends and
experiences that will never be forgotten -
all of these are cherished memories of a
beautifully unique group of people that I
lived, loved and prayed with. '

As the Harlequin experience is a
tremendously emotional one, it is hard to
sum up the learning that goes on.
However, in my leisure hours ffew
indeedj, I came across the song here.
After doing some reading, I noticed how
much of the Harlequin experience my
eyes saw in it. Some people won't

Perhaps needless to repeat, the
Harlequin experience lends itself to an
amount of knowledge of others and self
seldom equalled in any other school
activity. The avenues of learning open to
the student in the group, the diversified
interests he can pursue, the numerous
different types of people he meets, all
contribute to the intricate and complex
stimulus that are the features of this
experience. If I may insert the
perfunctory personal comment of the
article here, I think my time spent with
the Harlequins was the most valuable
fknowledge and recreationwisej I spent
in the school. It can't be that way for
everyone, but my four years in drama
were filled fand I mean filledj with too
many nice experiences and people
fespeciallyj for it to be any other way,

In debating, we came across something called the
"cost-benefit ratio? which is exactly what is sounds like:
a numerical representation of the cost of doing something
versus the benefits gained by doing it. Debate has had its
costs: it took a hunk out of the school budget, and a big
hunk out of our own pockets, it kept us out of Father y
Polakowski's class, and it made for a lot of wear on the
orange Volvo which belongs to Mr. Neaton. But its
benefits were immeasurable: it taught us to think and
speak: it's brought us lifetime friends at the High,
around the state, and around the country. The Cost-
benefit ratio: somewhere around 1000:l!
1975-76 was a great season. We were blessed with the
arrival of the "Super Frosh:" Chuck and Miller, and
Wohl and Greenwald, Braxton, S. Sheffieck, and Maben.
We saw the fanatical work of Bob Martyn rewarded
with tournament victories at Seaholm and Catholic
Central. We saw Bill Kerwin - a very fine debatorf'
We saw Mulhern named top speaker at many
tournaments. We saw Belanger and Hollowell progress to
the point where they could no longer be called the
munchkins. We saw the."doc" and "chippy" tWang and
Sheffieckj developing their own styles. We saw
Montgomery and Wilbert provide us with a little insight
and a lot of good times, and a lot of good laughs.
Oh, we had disappointments. Our quarterfinals jinx
continued, as we lost that round at State Finals for the
third year in a row. We lost Doc Wang when he decided
to take a leave of absence to give his regards to Mao.
Every round we lost tand we did lose a fewj brought us
In the end though, the disappointments were minor.
When I pick up this book ten years from now, it will be
the fond memories of "stump the coach on tidbits" in the
car on the way home from New York or Chicago which
will stick in my memory. It'll be the feeling of beating
C.C. on a 5-0 decision in New York and repeating it at
the University of Pittsburgh which will stand out.
Finally: for his countless hours of work, his joking
around to help us cope with defeat, for the hurt he felt
along with us when we lost at the States, for the things
he taught us, for the love he showed us, thank you, Rick

Rising To The Top
Adjusting his tie, the nervous student strides to the
front of the room. He gazes out at his captive audience,
they being the lions and he, Daniel. His tongue is tied,
his throat dry, his stomach knotted. He nods to the judge
and begins his six minute speech. On this nippy Spring
Sunday afternoon, yet another Detroit Catholic Forensic
League QDCFLJ tournament is underway.
Under the direction of coach Mr. Ronald Naski, this
year's DCFL president, fourteen students participated in
FORENSICS. If success is measured in terms of
accomplishments, then U. of D. High takes perhaps a
second place to schools like Bishop Borgess or Mercy.
But the real success of the program can only be
calculated by the individual competitors . . . we did the
best we could!
FORENSICS, a nice word that means so little to so
many, is divided into several catagories such as Oratory,
Extemporaneous Speaking, Interpretation and Multiple
Reading. From here, furthur division occurs. In Oratory,
male and female students are separated. Extemp is for
anyone who can convey a message convincingly and
speak spontaneously. Those who can act numerous roles
enter Storytelling or Dramatic Interp and those who
enjoy camaraderie join the Multiple.
Aside from the minimal attendance at most
tournaments, the Forensic team did well in the major
tournaments. The Grand Tournament, DCFL's National
Qualifying tournament, produced winners Dan Mulhern,
Michael Montgomery and Matt Wilbert in Extemp and
Mark Dreyer in Radio News. At the dictrict tournament
held at U. of D. High March 20, Regional qualifiers
included Pete Schaefer and Matt Wilbert in Extemp,
Dan Mulhern in Oratory and Bill Hittler in Storytelling.
At the Regional Tournament, Dan Mulhern took first
in Oratory. Pete Schaefer and Matt Wilbert received
honorable mention in Extemp. At the State Finals on
May 8, 1976, Dan Mulhern won the State Championship
All in all, the 1976 Forensic team can be linked to a
group of mountain climbers: they have reached
preliminary peaks, but greater ascent is still possible in
years to come.

"Everyone is corrupt, irrational, psychopathic or innately evil - except
me, of course, which is a great handicap, really, since I have to figure
out ways of cheating these nuts out of their votes."
So ran the reasoning of a seasoned MUN veteran explaining the value
of Model United Nations in preparing its participants for success in later
life. This worldly simulation has been credited, and seemingly justly so,
with giving those who have the chutzpah to get body and soul into the
act a realistic preview of the feelings and dynamics of the various uses
and abuses of power. To those who remain on the periphery, it provides a
revealing look into the dementation that takes over the individual's mind
when placed in a legislative body. A true change of character is
manifested in the actions of those who are caught up in the inevitable
power plays that develop. The most common battle played out during my
years in MUN has been the ever-present enmity between the "weird"
UDHS faction and everybody else. Indeed, we have been joined semi-
permenantly by a few exceptionally intelligent Mercy and Marian
delegates, but they are part of another phenomenon, This U. of D. hate-
obsession faction has been led, chiefly by the Br. Rice contingent. Since
we have consistantly been outnumbered, our only recourse has been to
out-maneuver, outthink and outtalk our goth-like opposition. Simple
parliamentary moves become vital tests of strength on major resolutions.
Nothing is as it seemsg a move to table may actually be an unscrupulous
attempt to abort any sincere move to table, a point of order may be, and
more often than not not is a malicous slap at the opposition. And no
MUN could be complete without that inevitable triple-cross.
This REALPOLITIK many times results in an ever present maladt,
unrestrained cynicism coupled with an amused contempt for those who
have not yet joined the ranks of the afflicted. This leads the
aforementioned delegates into the U. of D. camp where the disease
strikes hardest. For it is the U. of D. contigent that is forced to wield
naked power most efficiently, utilizing all its superior cerebral capacity in
the pragmatic use of oft-quoted ideals, simply to survive the undisputed
victor where the choice is "aut vincers aut mori."
You may ask where the world comes out in this bizzarre simulation.
Anyone with the slightest MUN experience could answer that naivete.
How do you think we got to where we are now??

SENATE - SENATE
An open letter to anyone who actually reads yearbook
Hi, why are you reading this? Would you like to read
something about the infamous "Senate of '76?" Well,
It's summer already and I don't feel like writing about
the "Senate," Oh well . . .
"Hello, would you like to buy a raffle ticket?,'
"Hello, would you like to sell a raffle ticket'?',
No, the raffle was no great success. It was a success,
but not a great one. This brainchild of the 5 officers -
or was it 4, or 3? - netted over l0 grand for the ol'
UofD, but it didn't generate the school unity of the
unforgettable "Century Walk." Ah, yes, the Century
Walk. Each year the Senate is compared to the Senate
of that golden year. Fortunately, I don't remember much
of it, so my comparisons come to an end. I, however,
digress Cblatant plagirismj.
Most of the "Senate"-sponsored events were of the
same caliber as the raffle: intermittantly good and

disastrous. The proper comingling
of ennui and general lack of
experience produced a Senate that
could so consistently produce
nothing noteworthy. lt' nothing else,
this year's Senate has been a lesson
to future generations of Qudders,
uddies, what do you call
yourselves?J U of D men to not
elect 5 loons in one year. Indeed,
the desultory nature of this very
passage should reveal the basic
instability of the Senate's officers'
minds. Oh well Oh well ..,.

Directed by Fr. Hillebrand, the
Community Action Movement of the 75-
76 commenced with an appeal on an
appeal on an ostentatiously voluminous
sign urging us students to join C.A.M.
Impressed with the long roll of paper
that Fr. Hillebrand employed as the sign
to promulgate C.A.M.'s existence and
function, we attended the first two
meetings. At the first one, a
representative from the Saint Francis
Home for boys addressed us . . He
advised us not only to be patient and to
be strict but also to have fun with the
boys. Each of us selected one night each
week to go to Saint Francis.
On the first Tuesday we, seniors John
Bongort and Don Montgomery and
junior Michael Hatcher, worked at Saint
Francis, we met the boys, talked to
them, attempted to play basketball with
them, and grew as Christian men. After
an evening of fun and learning, we had
to say good-bye. On a few Tuesdays, we
took an hour to say good-bye to the
youngsters. What really made our day
worth while was the boys wanting us to
stay and inviting us to dine with them.
Well, C.A.M. was great. As we look
back, we discover that not only the
parentially, unwanted boys procured
something from C.A.M. but also did we.
