u Ik mr m WILDER OTIS FINCH, Ph. B. in Journalism Besides being Downey ' s roommate " Zilmer " is famous as a member of the " Turtles, " a Chicago Hiker, Secretary of the Pam Club, and leading lady in Notre Dame dramatic productions. In his Freshman year he received an average of 93% in one of the quar- terly exams, but he has long since lived that down. He was the mysterious lady in red who led the Grand March at the Day Students ' Dance and danced so gracefully with Prof. Benitz. " A prettier girl never smoked a cigarette " was the verdict of all. Above all, " Zilmer " is a whole-hearted, lovable fellow, undoubtedly destined to make a great name for himself in the advertising world. I It Die id r ia m «k CHARLES FREEMAN FITZGERALD, M. E. Fitzgerald is a big Oregonian — big in body, in mind, and in heart. During the last four years, he has been one of the most prominent and popular men at Notre Dame. As captain of the great 1915 football team, he won the recognition which his athletic ability deserved — a place on the all-American. His ability to shoot goals from the field and the foul line have made his presence on the basketball team invaluable. After four years of success in meeting the difficulties of the mathematics classes and the other troubles of the engineers, he has succumbed (according to rumor) to the charms of one of the fair ones in the neighboring city. JOS EPH PATRICK FLYNN, B. S. in Architecture " Stubby, " the all-time champion distributor of good nature, has been an excellent stu- dent, elite society man, and versatile athlete from his first day here (when he sharpened his pencil, wood and all, with an emery board). In the meantime he has played on the Brownson teams in all sports and has made quite a name for himself in inter-hall circles ; but now he is a " Presbyterian " and can ' t play. We hold nothing against him even if he was treasurer of the class our Sophomore year: but, as may be judged from his drawings appearing in this book, we think he will- build a great reputation for himself as well as many stone and steel structures. 41

ALLEN HENRY ELWARD, LL. B. What " Mai " has done for Notre Dame in athletics, let another section of this book tell. Suffice it to say that when Coach Harper takes stock of his material next fall, he will be up against the task of filling the shoes of one of the best right ends who ever donned moleskins. As a student, " Mai " has been equally successful, as any member of Fr. Walsh ' s History class will testify. " Mai " was downcast the first of the year, but now that " Zipper " has returned to bunk with him, his cup of happiness is filled. May he fight his own battles, with the same fervor with which he has fought for Notre Dame so long and so well. PADRE CANDIDO FERNANDEZ, B. S. in Chemistry As shy young Freshmen we were introduced to Padre Candido of Civila, Spain. It is far from home and his " tales of Spain " made him the lion of his class. To describe the many accomplishments of Padre ' s career at N. D. would require greater pens and space than ours. He mastered everything. Little in stature but mighty in word and deed, Padre bats 1000%. His million dollar smile, his curly hair, and his enviable versatility make him a prize student. When Padre hies himself to the Philippines with his N. D. parchment, it will be with the best wishes of all his comrades, especially the class of ' 16. PADRE MANUEL FERNANDEZ, M. S. One glance at Padre ' s high wide forehead and no explanation is needed of what he has accomplished. In his four years at N. D. Padre claims an M. S. degree, and justly so, for his consistent application and marvelous ability give to his Alma Mater a classifica- tion of all her Protozoa plus a research thesis on " The Anatomy of the Shrimp. " Padre is an alumnus of the Biology course, and his mission is to teach in the Philippines. Padre often skives to South Bend and e ' en Chicago where he relates to the " Spanish Society of Chicago " each and every play of our football team. " Good luck to you, Padre, " is the heartfelt wish of your many friends. 40 1

JAMES WILLIAM FOLEY, Ph. B. While starring on the Varsity baseball team in 1910, Jimmy was injured so seriously that he remained out of school for two years. Hence our good fortune in having him as a member of the class of ' 16. Foley ' s course was light this year so he divided his time between George Hull, Mishawaka, Perrott ' s Glee Club and the 1916 Dome. As Athletic Editor, he has added greatly to the merit of this book. Jim has the polish of a Bostonian without the eastern accent, the charm of a true son of Erin, and the voice of an Alcott — what more could be desired ? ALFRED FRANCIS FRIES, C. E. If Al instead of Pete Yearns had announced the Dome dedication to Prof. McCue there would have been no hesitancy on the professor ' s part in accepting it, for Al ' s prin- cipal hobby is Civil Engineering. He has other hobbies also, such as playing the piano and dancing, while his social activities extend all the way from Grand Haven, Michigan, to Marion, Indiana ; but he never lets these things stand in the way of his work. Al ' s athletic build has also attracted Coach Rochne ' s attention this last year. Every man of 1916 will agree with us in saying that Al is a fine, attractive and likeable lad whose suc- cess in the world seems assured. TIMOTHY PATRICK GALVIX. Ph. It. Tim rolled up his sleeves in the fall of 1912 and has not stopped for breath yet. He has accomplished more than anyone else in our class ; but at the same time he has given enough time to the pleasures of life to become a friend to everyone. He has learned more in books than the " grinds " and has learned more about making true friends than anyone else. He put out this book; and although it took much of his time, he was glad to do all he could for the class. He is most prominent as an orator (having won the Breen Medal) and as a debater (being a member of the Varsity team for three years). A man with his " pep " will not stop until he has reached the top. 42
