As year by year sees its endless procession of mourners to the fields beyond the city, so moment by moment sees its memories being placed away in the dull graves of yesterday. But it is not a sad thought. Mem-ories, li e men, have their Easter; they have their Resurrection. They have an angel to stand at the door of the tomb and roll back the stone. That angel is the printed word.

WHICH WILL IT BE? One of us, dear, either you or I, Must hear God's call “Thy love must die!" And sink with agonizing cry In helpless grief. Which will it be? One of us, dear, must kneel, Where a belfry tolls with mournful peal, And watch Death's ship with steady keel Bear the other away. Which will it be? One of us, dear, must stave A crying heart near open grave, While pent up sorrows within, rave; And the earth will close Over you or me. One of us, dear, must bear The heavy burden that none may share Because we both do truly care, And God alone can cheer. Which will it be? One of us, dear, must wait To drain the dregs of bitter fate And pray for Death to open the gate To dark unknown. Which will it be? —W. T.

Its purpose is to offer congenial association and means of acquiring the latest information to young men interested in the fundamental sciences underlying the newer practice of medicine. It aims to discuss such biological and chemical subjects as are taught usually from a technical aspect but which have wide philosophical and sociological implications. This is done in part by members submitting reports after searching the literature pertaining to such subjects and especially by discussions of promh nent physicians who address the Club twice a month. Occasionally public meetings are held when topics of unusual interest to well informed people are treated by speakers of distinction. Incidentally this association with invited lecturers offers easy oppor tunities of becoming acquainted with distinguished medical men. James I. Smith.......................President Robert W.

J President Vice'President V ice'President Secretary T reasurer Moderator “And from the fig tree learn a parable: when the branch thereof is now tender and the leaves come forth, you know that summer is nigh." This is not chosen as the text for a sermon, so let it not be taken as an additional reason for not reading further. It is selected rather because of the easy application of the parable to the sturdy old tree to which these pages are devoted. In the following jottings we shall note here and there a budding leaf that presages the coming of summer. Indeed at no time in her history has the staunch old tree beneath whose tender shade Little Alumnus took his first toddling steps along the difficult path to knowledge and against whose solidtrunk he leaned when as a youth full grown he dreamed great dreams, never has our sheltering Alma Mater showed so many indications of a season of mellow fruitfulness. We are glad to observe that one of the most notable phenomena in our changing season of fortune is the awakening of the Alumni Association. The reason for the awakening may be found in the devoted work of the Old Guard under the able leadership of President Frank P. Hughes, '83, and the appointment to the Presidency of the College of a true alumnus, Rev. Edward J. Whelan, S.J. If anyone accepts the foregoing as mere posies from Polyanna, he was not present at the Annual Alumni Banquet on the evening of December 9th, when the largest banquet gathering in the annals of the Association met in the Gold Room of the Palace Hotel. The success of the affair was due largely to the efforts of Mr. Frank Barrett, '07, the Chairman of the Committee. The Alumni Banquet was the crowning event in a week of events cele-brating the Diamond Jubilee of the coming of the Jesuit Fathers to San Francisco. Among the guests of honor on that occasion were: Hon. James D. Phelan, '81; Hon. James Rolph, Jr., representing the city; Hon. Thos. Lennon, President of the St. Mary's College Alumni; Hon. William P. Lawlor: Hon. Jeremiah Sullivan, '75; Reverend Zacheus Maher, S. J., President of Santa Clara University, and Very Reverend Jos. Piet, S.J., Provincial of the Jesuits of the California Province. Florence M. McAuliffe, '05, was the toastmaster of the evening and the following responded to his call to address the assembled old boys: Mr. Frank P. Hughes, '83, President of the Alumni Association; Rev. Thomas J. Flaherty, S.J., '05, Moderator of the Alumni; Rev. Edward J. Whelan, S. J., '07, President of St. Ignatius College; Hon. James D. Phelan, '81; Charles A. Sweigert, '93; Stanislaus A. Riley, '00; Leland R. Jacobson, '16, and George E. Devine, '23. On the same evening the members chose the officers who are to rule the destinies of the Association for the year 1926. Mr. Frank P. Hughes, '83, was re-elected to the office of President; Mr. Andrew Conway, '23, Vice-President, and Mr. Leland R. Jacobson, '16, Treasurer, while Mr. William T. Sweigert, '21, was re-elected Secretary. Hon. Jeremiah Sullivan, our oldest living alumnus, proved himself the man of the hour when he assumed control of the meeting upon the nomination of Mr. Frank P. Hughes. The esteemed Judge delivered himself of a few remarks and handled the meeting in a manner that showed him as well suited for the halls of the State as for the bench and this, let us notice, is no faint praise. His Honor the Mayor, who, by the way, holds a degree from St. Ignatius, spoke for the people of San Francisco and paid high tribute to the work ofthe college and the Fathers during the seventyTive long years they have labored for the people of this city and State. Another event sponsored by the Alumni during the past year was the First Annual Ball, held at the Fairmont Hotel. This marks the first splash the Alumni has made in the strictly social in many moons. Many of the old boys were there with their wives and some of the younger old boys were similarly accoutred, while the “lads" were there in force, each accompanied by his respective lassie. Chairman Ivan Mareovich and the members of the committee are to be congratulated for proving to us that our dancing days are not yet over. Under the progressive policy of our fellow alumnus the new President of St. Ignatius College, Reverend Edward J. Whelan, ’07, a new system for the administration of athletics has been adopted. We are pleased to note that the Alumni has been given substantial representation on the new Board of Athletic Control. The Alumni representatives are Mr. Robert D. Rossi, '08; Mr. Darrell W. Daly, and Mr. Jack Whelan, '05. The Alumni Association acted as host to our new President, Father Whelan, at a special luncheon on September 17th, at the St. Francis Hotel. Hon. Jeremiah Sullivan presided, and Thos. W. Hickey, '93, the first teacher of the new President, was the principle speaker. St. Ignatius College is the positive proof which sharpens the teeth of the old saw about better mouse traps and the path the world builds to their maker's door. If the proverb were literally true, the sidewalk on Hayes Street would have already been pounded to gravel by those in search of new and better college presidents. There are other Jesuit colleges in existence on the Coast, to be sure, but beyond this we cannot venture. By way of explanation we submit the following: Santa Clara University, Santa Clara— Rev. Zacheus Maher, S. J., 00, President. Rev. John A. Lennon, S. J., 05—Dean of the Faculties. Seattle College, Wash.—Rev. William Boland, S. J., 96, President. Loyola College, Los Angeles- Rev. Joseph Sullivan, S. J., ex. 01, President. Sacred Heart Novitiate, Los Gatos—Rev. Leo Simpson, S. J., ex. 01, Rector. And to reinforce the already accutely obvious: St. Ignatius College—Rev. Edward J. Whelan, S. J., 07, President! A successful novelist once remarked that “people always like to read stories about duchesses." That, perhaps, is one reason why we all so thop oughly enjoyed the address of Hon. Richard O. Tobin, '96, on the occasion of the Alumni luncheon tendered him at the Palace Hotel. As Minister Plenipotentiary from the United States to the Hague, Mr. Tobin is truly one who consorts with kings, and that paradoxically enough is sufficient to endear him in the hearts of all true democrats. The speaker delighted us with an eloquent description of Holland and her people, a description thatwas jewelled with philosophy and spiced with anecdote. We may well be proud of Richard Tobin, scholar, gentleman, diplomat, and son of St. Ignatius. At the First Convention of the National Catholic Alumni Federation, which recently met in New York City, St. Ignatius College was represented by Dr. A. H. Giannini, '94, and Mr. Edmund W. Marks, '81. St. Ignatius was singularly honored by the election of Dr. Giannini to the Board of Trustees. Disconsolately droop the banners of Klandom over the executive mansion of “Wizard" Evans in Atlanta. All over the country, kleagles, cyclops and goblins turn in their uniforms and dealers in second-hand night gowns begin to snub bank presidents. Out of the West, a new figure, lance couched and tipped with the pennon of a finer clan, rides boldly. Alumni recognize in him Frank Murphy, newly created Grand Knight of Council 880, K. C. The marriage of Doctor Stanley Burns to Miss Margaret Toner of San Francisco, marks the latest apostasy from the Order—more or less loyal—of Local Eligibles. The event reminds us that Eros is after all the one unconquerable strategist. His weapon, the bow and arrow, primitive though it seems, is yet the one missile that has never been known to miss. While the defeated “sell out gang" (terminology W. R. Hearst's) were convening in the steam room to restore their broken faith in the people, Hon. John J. O'Toole, newly elected City Attorney, was making the following appointments: Dion R. Holm, ex. '12, First Assistant; Sylvain D. Leipsic, '21, Deputy Attorney, and Thomas J. Slevin, '25, Chief Clerk. '19—Automobile Row reports a wild flurry in the sale of bumpers! Safety appliance prices soar! Thousands of frenzied pedestrians disrupt meeting of town council with plea for overhead sidewalk system! Why? Well, Vin Hallinan, our young attorney who has reared the structure of a fortune upon other peoples' collisions, has purchased a car the better to acquaint himself with the experimental stages of damage suits. '16—Dr. Thomas Lennon, but recently returned from an extended European honeymoon, is now engaged as a member of the teaching staff at the University of California Hospital. Dr. and Mrs. Lennon were accompanied by their young son, John Daniel. Although by birth an alien, the young man is evincing an active interest in the affairs of his adopted country. Recently he assisted at the dedication ceremony of a new local bank, but owing to the difficulty which John is at present experiencing with our language, we are unable to herein engross his remarks. The linguistic difficulty will doubtless in time be surmounted since John is only nine months old.'25—Preston Devine, now a Junior in the Law School, and recently elevated to the office of Vice-President of the Student Body of that department, is keeping up the Devine tradition (no pun intended) of forensics. Pres was a member of the winning St. Ignatius team in the recent St. Ignatius-Loyola debate. Charlie Ruggles, '24, now a member of the Senior class in Law, did a one-night stand in the village of Los Angeles with the same act, meeting the Loyola debaters on their home stage. '10—Joe Sweeney, who devoted his time to instructing the youth of this institution until the Knights of Columbus and the government of our fair city clamored for his attention, is now engaged in the service of the Red, White and Blue. Joe has been appointed to the office of Assistant United States Attorney and is in charge of immigration and naturalization litigation for the United States Government. Perhaps Joe's training in moral philosophy may have something to do with the current policy of the Department of Commerce toward prominent visitors from beyond the briny. '16—If Eddie Foy had not already proved the futility of the assertion that the profession of the theatre is the enemy of domestic stability, the case of Tom Foster would be proof sufficient. Tom, who is surrounded by a happy and growing family on the pleasant uplands of Marin, has just added another triumph to his long line of dramatic successes. He was the Christian Brent of “Peg O' My Heart", recently produced for the benefit of St. Ignatius College. “As in a theatre the eyes of men, After a well graced actor leaves the stage, Are bent on him that enters next”—we notice the familiar figures of Harry Flood and Hall Evans, who did splendid work in the same production. R. I. P.—Death, the ultimate spouse of all heroes, jealous that so many brave and generous ones should dwell among the same group of mere mortals, has during the past year made many memorable calls to the alumni of St. Ignatius. Chief Samuel Spear, loser in a fight with angry Neptune to save the lives of his sons; Howard Born with his baccalaureate honors still fresh upon him; Jerome O'Neill, aged figure of the Comstock days; Luke Flynn, staunch and generous leader of the alumni; John Mahoney, faithful servant of the archdiocese, and the skillful, kindly Dr. John Gallagher, have reached the Great Commencement. '23—“Oh, new generation of ancient Cadmus, I come to learn what emotions fill your hearts today." So said our old friend Oedipus the King, and so also said our young friend Geo. E. Devine in striking the key-note ot his address on behalf of the younger alumni, at the Annual Alumni Banquet. Nor will it be soon forgotten how this worthy rep' resentative of the youngsters proceeded to answer this question. If this were not already the day of the young man, such representation would soon make it so. Gerry O’Gara, not long since a member of the Ignatian Staff, has persevered in the journalistic bent and is now business manager of the Olympian and a member of the Sporting Department of the San Fran cisco Chronicle. This devotion to the ink and presses is, however, temporary, for Gerry is now a Senior at Hastings Law School and will soon become a member of the bar, even as his father before him. '24—How swift and full the times! Youth, that but yesterday viewed with impatient gesture the crawling pageant of the years, today would stay a bit the onrush of its flight. The wrinkles of mirth have been replaced by the sober traceries of thought and playmates have become pro fessors. Charlie Sweigert inclines the adolescent mind to the works of Mendelejeff, Pasteur, Curie, and Fr. Conlon, while Bill O'Brien in' structs a prospective citizenry in the theory of government, attempting at the same time to curb the youthful appetite for college humor and the funny paper. Jackie Coogan wears a No. 16 collar; yesterday's nursling complains of his neuritis; classmates are caught slyly reading “How to Reduce”, and—Marty O'Brien has become a father. Yea! verily, how swift and full the times! '25—“A prophet is without honor in his own country.” But that was be' fore Ed Keil went to Harvard. Ed, whose departure from our musty halls is so recent that a heavy collegiate atmosphere still seems to pep vade them, has proved the futility of trusting to long residence for the attainment of academic success. Back in the far East where Harvard is Harvard and Jesuit boys are students, a young man with a brightly be'ribboned sheepskin, tied his horse to the Law Library as the light of September's setting sun turned all to crimson. No sooner registered than he begins to demonstrate that he has learned a few things with the scholastic six'shooter. When winter comes his name is inscribed upon the roll of honor students. With spring still far behind, he hits the bull's eye, and Ed has won a scholarship! And here from the same number, another intercollegiate Nelly Bly—out from the very heart of the Baptist belt, laden with honors and distinctions by his foster Alma Mater, Notre Dame, comes Eustace Cullinan, Jr. Euie, seeking other fields to conquer, has become a student of the law in the subup ban stillness of the Stanford Farm.NEWLY ORDAINED ALUMNI Ki.v JottMi Howard, S.

Fresh from the inquisitorial chamber of an abnormally curious faculty comes the class of 1926. About fifteen letters men and about twice as many more lawyers, they stand on the threshold, awaiting the great adventure of living down a college education. Armed with oda, epoda, syllogisms and epycherimata, and fairly bristling with lands, tenements and hereditaments, complaints and cross complaints, they stand impatient for the fray. The Alumni Association, on behalf of an awaiting world, bids them welcome!DAY COLLEGE DANCE Last year the Day College graciously submerged its identity on the oc-casion of its second annual dance and condescended to call the affair the Football Dance in deference to the nascent football team which was then in ’ the thick of the annual fall battle for sporting page space. This year saw the event revert to its orginal status, that of the Annual Dance of the Associ-ated Students of St. Ignatius College, conceived and promoted exclusively by Day College students. Herb Williamson and his aides, the President and Vice-President of each class, selected November 28th as the date, the Gold Room of the Palace Hotel as the place, and Art Weidner’s band, popular exponent of microphone orchestrations, as the music. Once again the programs, usually a neglected item, were the pride and joy of the committee and were suitable souvenirs against the time when the melancholy days are come. FOOTBALL SMOKER Ignatian fans with football appetite, whetted by a ten months' fast, need little exhortation to attend the early games on the schedule, but by the time the last game rolls around they have had their fill and are inclined to vacate the bleachers. The football smoker, held last year on the eve of our opening game, was delayed this year until the night before the closing encounter in order to insure a good attendance at the curtain. The party started innocently enough. Two fast boys sparred away twelve minutes, vocal and piano solos intervened, and then two more bantams entertained. A couple of monologists, who held their “gags” in common next were led before us. Coach Jim Needles gave an optimistic talk and Walt Nieland, captain of the 1925 varsity, followed with an address that could in no way be classed with the meaningless mumblings of team captains. Walt was not perfectly orthodox, but he had ideas. Immediately after, the committeemen converted the smoker-rally into an orgy by distributing refreshments. FRESHMAN RECEPTION Besides its title function the Freshman Reception was used as an occasion to welcome Fr. Edward Whelan, S.J., the new President of the College,and it was only after he had been duly received that the class of '29 were given recognition. Fr. President, in a response to an address of welcome, gave a vital talk in which he revealed his aspirations and besought the con' currence of the students. The Freshmen then were imposed upon by potentates of the Student Body and powers in things athletic, who told them of their part in the college's life, and in a way, congratulated them for registering at St. Ignatius. Following varied entertainments, hot dogs, coffee and doughnuts were served. But the affair was only a partial success in that the upper classmen failed to make their guests, the Freshmen, bathe the dishes. Although he was not aware of it, Fr. Whelan, by his presence, deterred the hosts from resorting to duress in the executing of their scheme. Serenely the Freshmen took their leave under the unconscious patronage of our new President. Next day, however, a contingent of first year men were led back into the hall to perform as domestics. ORATORICAL CONTEST Raymond L. Sullivan, '28, speaking on “Crime and the New Decalogue", won the gold medal offered by Ignatian Council, Y. M. I., in the annual oratorical contest held this year in the Saint Ignatius Hall on March 2nd. Sullivan's speech, which was aimed at the apathy of our penal system Uy wards the malicious intent of wrong'doers, was doubtlessly honored for its order and symmetry. Two of the three judges, Mr. Edmund A. Rossi, Dr. Stanley T. Burns, and Mr. W. Vincent Leahy, voted for the winner and two recipients of honorable mention in the same order. Second place was awarded to Frank E. Ruggles for his address on "Cub ture and Character", in which he distinguished between education and probity. James A. O'Gara, '26, winner of the third mention, advanced a neglected formula for the abatement of the ubiquitous moral laxity when he suggested that the Catholic laity of the nation lead the way for their fellow' men by reforming themselves. John B. Lounibos, '26, eulogized the Jesuit martyrs of North America. Herbert Williamson, '26, defended the action of the United States in ex' acting payments from France. The potentialities of the radio in dissemi' nating Catholic doctrines were revealed by Conrad T. Hubner, '28. John J. Coleman, '29, hailed the Locarno Pact as the death of future Franco'Prussian wars. Prohibition, its spirit and its operation, was con' victed on all counts by Frank H. Smith, '29. Edward M. Tattenham, '29, excoriated those responsible for child labor and deprecated its institution in California. William A. O'Brien, winner of the medal a few years back, gave the introductory remarks, informing the audience of the nature of the contest, and the place of public speaking in the Jesuit system of education. ST. IGNATIUS'LOYOLA DEBATE The dual debate held at the Knights of Columbus Hall on November 27th, between Saint Ignatius College and Loyola College of Los Angeles, was on a question which, at the time, occupied the front columns of the newspapers and elicited lengthy discussion in the House and Senate: Resolved, that a Department of National Defense Be Instituted, combining Army, Navy and Air Forces Under Single Control. On this account, a large mixed audience, usually not associated with intercollegiate debating, was on hand to greet the speakers. The visiting debaters, Messrs. H. Landon Morris, Law, '27; Morey J. O'Brien, Law, '27, and George H. Dunne, Arts, '26, attacked the proposal, while Messrs. Preston Devine, Law, '27; John B. Lounibus, Arts, '26, and William B. Spohn, Law, '28, defended it. Intricate arguments advanced from the theoretical, the practical and finally the probable aspects, earned the judges' decision for the Ignatian speakers, each of whom had a distinct role in the development of the defense. What the Loyolans lacked in material they substituted with rhetoric, for the visitors were certainly spellbinders. Mr. William B. Spohn was judged the best speaker of the evening. On the same night, Messrs. Jerome Duffy, George Harris and Charles Ruggles took up the negative side of this question at Los Angeles, but they were not as successful as their colleagues on this end, losing the decision after a spirited session. Judge Daniel C. Deasy, Mr. Walter P. Johnson and Judge Edward P. Shortall rendered the decision here, and Mr. William Sweigert was Chair' man. McKINLEY GOLD MEDAL DEBATE A speech fraught with satire and delivered in slightly more than half the allotted time, won for Edward V. McQuade, '28, the McKinley Gold Medal at the Annual Prize Debate of the Senior Philhistorian Debating Society, held this year on April 14th, in Santa Maria Hall, Knights of Columbus Building. McQuade, together with John Coleman, '29, and Francis Kerner, '29, attacked a proposal to equalize in all respects the rights and duties of men and women, and waiving arguments from statistics and authorities, devoted his speech to nice thrusts at the age that broached such a measure. Conrad Hubner, '28; Frank Smith, '29, and Frank Kirby, '28, pleaded for the proposition. The judges who decided in favor of the negative team, were: Lieutenant'Colonel Daniel A. Nolan, Major Ernest J. Carr, and Lieutenant Frederick W. Wennerberg. Mr. Preston Devine was Chairman.SENIOR PHILHISTORIAN DEBATING SOCIETY Problems that distress the mortal span of our august statesmen are brought to an issue within two hours every Monday morning by the Fresh' men and Sophomores, the members of the S. P. D. S. Under the moderator' ship of Father John Gearon, S. J., the Society continued in its work of train' ing creditable speakers. The officers for the two semesters were: Frank Kirby, President; Frank Kerncr, Vice'President; Edward McQuade, Secretary, and Robert Miller, Sergeant'at'Arms. PRESS BUREAU If you have espied with pleasing frequency the name of St. Ignatius in the local dailies during the last six months and have wondered why the scribes at last awakened to the news values of your college, a recital of the activities of the Press Bureau would dissipate your wonderment. The Press Bureau was brought into existence a few days after the opening of the second semester and immediately began to tell the world about the Varsity Quintet. Daniel McSweeny, Russell Berti, William Connolly and James A. O'Gara prepared copy for the newspapers. LAWCOMMERCE DANCE Eclipsing all the records of previous years, both in real enjoyment and in attendance, the Associated Students of the departments of Commerce and Law held their third annual dance at the Fairmont Hotel. Much credit is due the Committee, composed of men from both the StU' dent Bodies. Their plans were carried out to such a point of perfection that the only comments made upon the dance were words of praise. BROOK GOLD MEDAL DEBATE The Law School Philalethic Senate completed their public debates at the Knights of Columbus Hall with the annual Gold Medal Debate. The question, “Resolved: That Congress, by a two'thirds majority, should have the power to nullify decisions of the Supreme Court," was a timely subject and gave plenty of matter to the competent members of the Senate. Messrs. Bianchi, Dana and McCarron upheld the affirmative side of the debate, while Messrs. Ford, Lee and Shelley maintained the opposite. The latter, by their oratorical ability, convinced the judges of their opinion and merited the decision, while Lee, a member of the winning side, was awarded the gold medal as the best speaker of the evening.BOARD OF ATHLETIC CONTROL F. Acquistapace, S. J. J. Whelan C. J. Walsh. S. J. R. Rossi E. Barricklo D. McSweeny D. Daly The Board of Athletic Control was organized in November, 1925. Prior to that time there had existed a growing sentiment that a reorganization of the athletic department was necessary in order to secure greater efficiency. Following a series of conferences with the Faculty, a Board of seven mem' bers was finally adopted, the membership to consist of two student repre' sentatives (Presidents of the Associated Students), two Faculty members and three Alumni representatives. John L. Whelan............................Chairman Elmer Barricklo...........................Vicc'Chairman Robert D. Rossi ..........................Treasurer Darrell W. Daly...........................SecretaryJimmy Needles Head Coach of Athletics Too much credit cannot he given Jimmy for the excellent work in the athletic line during his stay at St. Ignatius. Working under handicaps and lacking material for championship college teams, he has, nevertheless, toiled on, building up the material offered him. Jimmy is one of the most popular players and coaches in this vicinity and we look forward to the day when he will he able to turn out the teams that will reflect on him the credit that is his due. His latest achievement, the bringing home to the High School the chanv pionship through the basketball team which he and his brother Frank coached, added another to his list of victories. John Rudden has been the Student Manager for the past few years and has merited well of the College. His knowledge of sports and the players has armed him with the needed qualities of his position.

Never at any time a weak aggregation, the Club team ot this season possessed a powerful attack and a sterling defense unequalled in its history, as was conclusively proven by its victories over California and Stanford Universities. The Ignatians, however, were undaunted and went at their work with such unfailing vigor that the Clubmen were more than once hard pressed to maintain their rather scant margin of victory. Our team reached their peak offensively in the fourth quarter, when two perfectly executed forward passes and a fifteemyard dash by Tony Young put the ball on the Club's fouryard line. From there Captain Nieland cap ried it over in two line plunges. The attempt at goal was blocked. Fred Haub, Captain Nieland and the Young brothers starred for the Red and Blue. It may be noted that in comparison with the Olympic Club'Stanford and the Olympic ClulyCalifornia games, St. Ignatius shows up very favorably, scoring at least a touchdown where both the other two universities were blanked, and playing just as good a game defensively. ARMY 6, IGNATIANS 6 Every schedule has its surprise. The Ignatians found their 1925 jolt in the person of Sandy Goodman, nationally known athlete and former West Point luminary, who took a number ol raw huskies from the Ninth ArmyCorps and moulded them into a very capable football machine that held the Ignatians to a 6'6 tie score. The collegians, however, were suffering a let'down of tension after the strenuous Olympic Club game; so it is possible that had the soldiers possessed a different position on the schedule the story would have been otherwise. Goodman himself played a very large part in the efforts of the Army team, shifting from line to back field and from back field to line with speed that was bewildering. All in all the game was rather a disappointment. Although no glaring errors were committed, neither was any extraordinary brilliance exhibited because of its lack of color. BARBARIANS 0, IGNATIANS 20 There was practically no difficulty for the Ignatians in winning this con' test, and with just a little more initiative the boys might have swelled their total by two or three more touchdowns, which score would have more cop rectly demonstrated the relative strength of the two squads. The Barbs were hopelessly outclassed. Except for a momentary flash in the final quarter, when the clubmen brought the ball to the Ignatian twenty' yard line, the play was continuously in the Barbarian territory. McDonald bucked over the first score in the initial period but the try for goal failed. In the second quarter the Ignatians started a march from midfield and by consistent line plunging carried the oval to the Barbs’ twelve'yard line. Here Nieland took the ball on a crisscross and went over for the second touch'down, the play being carried through with such perfection that the Captain was able to cross the line without a single hand touching him. In the third quarter Mann circled his right end for a pretty run of 35 yards to place the pigskin on the five-yard line. Again he carried the ball and this time skirted his left end for a third and final tally of the day. Mann kicked the goal. Coach Needles gave nearly all his players a chance in this game, sometimes changing almost the entire line-up. Of the regulars, Slide Falvey and Walt Nieland played unusually good ball, while every one concerned did his bit to bring about the victory. CHICO STATE 23, IGNATIANS 0 The Chico Teachers journeyed to San Francisco boasting an impenetrable line and a steady attack and departed on the long end of a 23 to 0 score with their boast made good and their reputation intact. There is no trouble explaining this defeat. The Ignatians suffered quite a startling reversal of form, and this, together with the Teachers consistent offense, was more than enough to decide the issue. Chico depended on straight football without any of the fancy frills, the nearest approach to a sensation occurring in the first quarter, when halfback Canfield raced from midfield to score a touchdown. Colledge plunged through for a tally in the second period and duplicated his feat in the third. In the final quarter Lee drop-kicked a field goal for three more points. Fullback Butts, the outstanding performer for the visitors, dis-played his wares, while Dan Murphy and Red Vaccaro showed up nicely for the Ignatians. NEVADA 7, IGNATIANS 0 This was one of those heart-rending affairs, wherein victory always beckons and never seems to materialize. Undoubtedly the high altitude at Reno had a bad effect on the Ignatians, as it seems to have on every group of athletes who visit the Nevada University. The Ignatians encountered the Notre Dame system for the first time of the season and showed great defensive power in breaking up the Wolf Pack’s plays. To Tom Broadmerkle, Wally Cameron and Bill McDonald goes a great deal of credit for their uncanny foresight in sensing plays and stopping them before they had a chance to materialize. Dan Murphy, Fred Haub and Slide Falvey put up a brilliant game, as did also Walter Nieland at quarter. Although the Ignatians were defeated, their sportsmanship and their gentlemanly conduct created many favorable comments, the value of which cannot be estimated. In appreciation of this conduct a gold medal was later sent to the squad by a prominent citizen of Reno.CALIFORNIA AGGIES 3, IGNATIANS 0 This game comes also under the general heading of “tough one to lose." Neither team played up to the standard it was capable of, each one making many slips of judgment and failing at critical moments. The only score of the contest occurred in the third quarter when Captain Taut of the Aggies kicked a field goal to give his team the victory. The game was slow and the style of play unvaried, affording little chance for individual starring. MARE ISLAND HOSPITAL 0, IGNATIANS 13 The Ignatians finished the season in a blaze of glory by defeating the sailors from Mare Island Base Hospital 13 to 0, but they nearly gave the customers heartdailure by waiting until the final period to push over their markers. All indications pointed to a scoreless tie when the fourth quarter started, but the Ignatians took advantage of a fortunate break to start things going. Red Cameron filtered through the Marine line and blocked a punt which Dan Murphy nailed on the Marines' ten yard line. Fred Haub went over for a touchdown that Nicland converted to make seven points. Apparently this was but a starter for the boys, because in a few moments they began a parade of steady gains from midfield, Haub finally smashing through for another score. Cameron and Murphy turned in some excellent line play and Fred Haub tore off consistently long gains. Another score was refused when Fred Haub again crossed the line, but the teams were called back for offside.■Mi Wright Borchers PoLATI Morrissey MeyerINTRODUCTION TO SEASON Though getting off to a rather late start this year, the Varsity Basketball Team acquitted themselves very favorably, and under the direction of Coach Jimmy Needles, completed another successful season. Owing to this late start, a rather heavy schedule was completed in a brief time and playing an average of three games a week often told on the players. Of the fourteen games played, eight were victories while six went to the opponents. Some of the fastest quintets were encountered and sent back on the short end of the score. The Y. M. I. team which went back to participate in the national tournament was defeated by a scant basket, as was St. Mary's in the first game of the series. The tables were also turned on Nevada after the first game ended in defeat for us. Santa Clara, though not in the best shape possible, went down before the fast Ignatians twice, as did also the weak California Aggies. California scored a victory in the second game we played. St. Mary's staged a comeback and romped off with the second game with ease. With practically a veteran team in sight for next year, hopes are high that the basketball fame of St. Ignatius College will be retained.

IGNATIUS 32, SAN JOSE “GOLDS" 15 THE first contest of the season was with the San Jose Y. M. C. A., and the clash resulted in rather an easy win for the Ignatians. The “Golds” were fast and possessed plenty of fight, but were not heavy enough to cope successfully with the husky collegians. Johnny Patridge, who sank five field goals, was the high-point man of the fray, and Al. O’Neill was right on his heels with six points to his credit. Phil Morrissey made a come-back after his enforced lay-off of a full year, and demonstrated the fine points of playing guard with an easy skill and a finished technique that proclaimed him a master of his position. Walt Nieland also showed a good floor game, and Tony Glynn drew a lot of applause with his smashing tactics at guard. The passing attack and the potential scoring power that the Ignatians displayed in this game was a source of satisfaction both to Coach Needles and to the college rooters, who felt that the varsity was well on its way to another triumphant season.

IGNATIUS 17 To St. Ignatius fell the task of opening up the inter-collegiate basketball season, with the powerful Bear quintet as their opponents. Although the contest was exciting and entertaining throughout, it could hardly be classed as a shining exposition of the technical points of basketball. Both fives played the wild, dashing, driving game which is so popular with the fans, but which does not always obtain the results desired. As an excuse for failing to show any semblance of co-ordinated team play, the University hoopsters offered the fact that their forward and captain, Benny Holmes, about whom their attack centered, was absent from the clash on account of illness and that consequently they could not be expected to show to much advantage. The Ignatians were without any excuse at all, unless it be the time-honored alibiconcerning breaks of the game. At that, the boys did have some cause for complaint on that score. Lady Luck wore a onesided grin all evening, and the serious half of her countenance was turned toward St. Ignatius. Bill Higgins and Frank Watson, Bear center and forward, respectively, went on a hoop'ringing rampage and chalked up fourteen markers apiece. Too much of the blame for this should not be attached to the Ignatian guards, however, for half the time the Bruins were shooting blindly. Seemingly they couldn't miss. Jack Patridge and Al. O'Neill accounted for five digits apiece, and prob' ably would have doubled their average had it not been for George Dixon, Bear guard. Time and again an Ignatian formation would weave swiftly down the court, only to be stopped almost in the shadow of the basket by the herculean efforts of the aforesaid Dixon. The team certainly showed a let'down in this game, but perhaps it was better to have it occur then than later on at a more important stage of the season. California Pos. f-g Ft.

IGNATIUS 26, SANTA CLARA 12 Little trouble was experienced in taking the Bronco's down the line by a 26 to 12 count on the Santa Clara court. At best the Valley five was no match for the Ignatians, and handicapped by injuries, as they were in this game, they hardly deserved to even appear on the same court with their rivals. Cameron showed the way in this collision, hanging up a total of five field goals, sinking all of them in the second half. He also scintillated with his play at center, breaking up numerous Bronco attacks with mad abandon. Phil Morrissey turned in a more than usually brilliant exhibition at guard, and topped off a fine evening with three perfect field goals. Walter Nieland, whose forte generally lies in team play, added a little spice to his good per formance by accounting for seven points. Valine was the individual Bronco star of the contest with two field goals to his credit. McAuliffe also played well, and with just a little more aidfrom the Fates might have done a great deal towards stemming the tide of the Ignatian attack. St. Ignatius Pos. Fg Ft.

Not that there was anything unsavory in the manner in which the defeat itself was administered, but the blow was so unexpected, the upset so startling, the shock so disheartening. The Stanford Club, a newly organized athletic association, was admitted to the St. Ignatius schedule almost in the nature of a filler-in, a warm-up game, but due largely to the singular play of Teddy Stoddard and Maurer, club stars, the Stanfordites brought about the biggest reversal in basketball dope of the season. This Stoddard was a decided thorn in the Ignatian side, working the angles for four field goals and smashing many an Ignatian angle on the side. His running mate, Maurer, was not a whit less effective, scoring five markers and playing a whirlwind defensive game. Jack Patridge and Phil Morrissey strove nobly to avert the issue, but the meager help afforded them by their team-mates was a drawback, and the Club finished on top. St. Ignatius i’os. Fg. Ft.

IGNATIUS 19 Traditional rivalry was resumed, old sores were re-opened, when the Nevada Wolves vanquished the Ignatian hoopsters on the Reno Court by a count of 31 to 19.A young and extraordinarily voracious Wolf, Frederick by name, formed a very large part of the Nevada offense and an equally generous part of her defense. Possessed of a remarkably accurate eye and a bewildering speed of foot, this ravaging wolverine rang up twelve points with an ease that was disconcerting. Frederick was paired off with another marauder, answering to the cognomen of Bream, and this member of the Pack did his best to emulate his savage running mate. His emulation touched the very fair peak of nine markers. These boys were merely the brightly shining lights, however. Several other boys, notably Clover and Goodale, were as rapiers on the offense and like cutlasses on the defense. The striking inability of the Ignatians to do much in the way of scoring in this game may be attributed to the very capable manner in which Phil Mop rissey was covered. He was quashed, squelched, smothered, and his team' mates were powerless without the usual stellar assistance of the most depend' able cog in their machine. Cameron was the mainspring of what little Ignatian offense there was, finding the target three times. Johnny Patridge played a nice floor game, but his scoring attempts were fruitless. Nevada carried a little too much clever' ness, both of body and of mind, for the Ignatians in this contest. Nevada Pos. Ft. Total St. igmHitts Pos. Fg. Ft.

IGNATIUS 26, NEVADA 17 Changing their style of play overnight, from one of reckless speed to one of caution and precision, the Ignatians solved the Nevada defense and in the second and final game of their series whipped the Wolves by a score of 26 to 17. This time Phil Morrissey broke loose from the leech'like guards who had stopped him the night before and again flashed his brilliant technique, scoring six points and smashing many Wolf formations even before they had begun moving down the floor. This time Patridge and Nieland, the southpaw forward duo, washed out the dust from their eyes, and replacing the dust with blood set forth on a rampage that did not stop until it had netted them twenty points and the game.If ever a basketball attack reminded one of the forays of the fabled Three Musketeers, it was this raid which the Ignatians flashed in the second Nevada game. Nieland, Patridge, and Morrissey rambling down the court with swashbuckling ardor, and returning only to start another campaign. Be' tween them, the three accounted for all of the Ignatian points. Nevada Hashed a brief spurt early in the second half, but quickly receded into submission. Fredericks again featured for the Wolves, accounting for seven digits. He was ably supported by Bailey.

I. had displayed such an imposing early'season form that the Institute was favored by many to win by a comfortable margin. But by virtue of a lot of fight, that quality which ever characterizes Ignatian teams, the boys came through and beat Old Man Dope at his own game. The clash itself was one of those nip'and'tuck, give'and'take, seesaw affairs, with neither team leading by any appreciable margin at any time, and with the issue always in doubt. Phil Morrissey was top'point man with eight points to his credit and with the assistance of Tony Glynn big Phil also succeeded in stopping the much'feared Bailey, star of the Institute five, rather effectively. The energetic Ernie was able to score but three points all even' ing, and even that was a difficult task with Morrissey and Glynn hounding his every move. Little John Patridge was in good form, too, ringing seven points and turn' ing in a darting, bewildering floorgame.

MARY'S 18 There is something about a basketball game between St. Mary's and St. Ignatius that seems to go to the heads of the players as well as the spectators, and this contest from which the Ignatians emerged victors, was no exception. A total of twenty personal fouls was called on both teams, St. Mary's having the edge with twelve of them to their credit, or discredit. Fine basketball was combined with that bit of fight which always pleases and it was not until the final minute, when Patridge sank a free throw, that the game was decided. Phil Morrissey maintained the exceptional standard which had been his all season, ringing nine points and displaying an all-around polish of play that for finish and artistry would be hard to excel, anywhere. It seemed that it was Phil’s night, for although his team-mates acquitted themselves creditably, they could not quite get over the hump when it came to scoring. So Phil's points were badly and vitally needed. Lawless and Underhill carried the brunt of St. Mary's attack, while Con-lan scintillated at a guard position. Tazer, a young forward, got into the game for a while and surely made his presence felt. But better forwards than he would have been stopped that night, as the guarding and blocking of Morrissey and Glynn was above reproach. St. Ignatius Pos. Fg. Ft. Total St. Mary's Pos. Fg. Ft.

The Oakland collegians displayed an almost impenetrable defense, which was adamant before the frequent and fruitless attempts of the Ignatians to pierce it. Lawless and Tazer divided the basket-ringing honors of the evening, each man scoring ten points. Underhill turned in a total of eight more digits, besides playing a fine game at center, while Lien and Conlan were like stone walls at the guard positions.The individual play of the Ignatians was overshadowed by the brilliance of their adversaries, but even at that Al.

IGNATIUS 20 One of those thrilling last-minute scoring rushes so common in basketball turned the tide in favor of the College of Pacific Tigers in one of the fastest games of the season. The Ignatians after having played the Tigers almost to a standstill, left the court at half-time on the long end of a 10-9 count. At the start of the final period, however, the Tigers commenced a dashing attack, and with Captain Wood leading the way, scored enough points to nose out the Ignatians by a 23-20 score. The teams were a perfect match for each other as far as ability went, but the varsity lacked that co-ordination of work which is vitally necessary to their style of play, and this turned out to be the deciding factor in the final result. Lefty Patridge topped the point-getters with nine markers, and played his unfailingly brainy game at forward. McArthur and Royse, Tiger forwards, weaved through the Ignatian defense time and again and before they were through had accounted for 13 points between them. The star of the Tigers, however, was Captain Wood at guard, who was the leading spirit in nearly every foray which the Pacific boys directed against their opponents' goal. Phil Morrissey starred again on the floor, and also rang up five digits towards the total. Pacific Pos. Fg. Ft. Total St. Ignatius Pos. Fg. Ft.

IGNATIUS 25 Although there was a difference of eight points in the final score, the Olympic Club, on this night, were certainly not eight points better than the Ignatians. The game was one of those free-scoring affairs where the nettingis constantly quivering from repeated attacks, and the varsity was in this battle for points every minute of the fray. During the first half, the Winged'O experienced depressing difficulty in piercing the stout five man defense part on display by the Ignatians; but later in the game, after Phil Morrissey had been ordered from the tussle for making a pass at an opponent, this detense cracked and the Club forwards poured through the breach and started an avalanche of baskets. Hammersley and Miner were the pivoting points for the Club offense, and they did their share of the work nobly. They were ably abetted by Jerry Donovan, who played a smashingly successful game at the tip-off position. Johnny Patridge went on another scoring rampage, sinking nine points, eight of which he registered in the first period. In the second half the Club defensive men were all over him like a carpet, and his shooting went for nothing. Cameron put up a whirlwind game at center until late in the second half, when he accidentally drove into a Club player and was knocked cold by the impact. He was carried from the floor and immediately the varsity let down in their rush. Olympic Club Pos. Fg. Ft. Total St. Ignatius Pos. Fg. Ft.

Santa Clara was the first victim, being buried under a 28' 15 count. A1 O'Neill and Jack Patridge went on a spree together, returning with 21 points between them, but they encountered quite a little opposition on the way from two gentlemen of the Valley university, Barsi and Malley by name. The game, however, was somewhat of a debacle, the best defense which the Broncos could offer being so slight as to be almost negligible. St. Ignatius Pos. Fg. Ft. Total Santo Clara Pos. Fg. Ft.

IGNATIUS 36, CALIFORNIA AGGIES 15 Had this been played under the Marquis of Queensbury rules, the referee would have stopped the match sometime early in the final period and raised the Ignatian hand in token of welhearned victory. It was really no contest. In contrast to the Davis representatives the Ignatians looked like a smooth, welhoiled machine incapable of developing any knocks. Everyone performed their duties well, but Wright and O'Neill had their basket eyes with them and accumulated a nice total for themselves. For the Aggies, Phillips and Fine were the only ones to show any semblance of class. St. Ignatius Pos. F - Ft. Total Cal. Aggies Pos. Ft. Total Wright f. 3 1 7 f.

IGNATIUS 40, CALIFORNIA AGGIES 9 A vivid idea of this clash may be gleaned from the fact that around about the end of the first half a good portion of the spectators left the gym and ambled over to see some professional cagers in action. There is nothing that can be said of this game, unless it might be that the Ignatians had reached their peak, which is one worthy of emulation, and that the Aggies had not even started to climb to the summit. Johnny Patridge finished the season right by dropping six field goals from difficult angles, while Wright was also there with four. The Aggies scored their two field goals in the last minutes of play. St. Ignatius Pos. Fg. Ft.

Strehl Stoddard Anderson Thompson Joseph Black Howard Crane One of the most encouraging features of the 1926 basketball season was the splendid showing made by the Reserves. The youngsters encountered about every class of opposition that it is possible for amateur basketball to offer, and in every clash they displayed a dashing spirit and an admirable concerting of action that augured well for varsity squads of the future. The Reserves refused no comers, and here is a brief record of their cep tainly creditable showing. Reserves 30 — S. F. Rational Guards 16 The babes were too trickly fast for the big and rather clumsy soldiers, filtering through the guardsmen's defense with a smoothness that was re' markable. Crane and Black led the scoring attack for the winners. Reserves 19 — Santa Clara Frosh 11 This was one of those “naturals", a battle for blood, for most of the boys had been rivals in high school days. Sammy Black and Stoddard featured with six points apiece.Reserves 16— Stanford A. C. 145s 25 The Club boys flashed a driving attack that the Ignatian babes could not fathom until it was too late in the game. Rodrique was the star for the victors, while Stoddard played well for the Reserves. Reserves 28 —St. Mary's Frosh 21 Another “grudge" affair, in which the Ignatians triumphed solely by virtue of their fighting spirit. Black topped the Ignatian offense with four field goals, and Charick of the Saints was not far behind with three. Reserves 20 — Matson Navigation 8 After having been disgracefully whitewashed in the first period the babes, notably Maloney and Black came back strong in the second half and played the opponents off the court. The Reserves trailed 8 to 0 at the half time. Reserves 24 — Sam McKee Real Estate 19 The Sam McKee Real Estate Board packed a fair punch, but the babes displayed plenty of staying ability and walked off with the decision. Crane and Black were the individual bright lights for the winners. Reserves 28 — H. T. I. 16 With Sammy Black sinking the ball in the basket from all angles of the court, the babes trampled all over the H. T. I. club to the tune of a 28-16 score. Howard played his usual brilliant game at guard saving the score. Reserves 28 — Poly High Vnlimiteds 33 Outweighed, but not outfought, the Reserves dropped a tough one to the Poly High Unlimiteds. Borreilles led the victors' attack with 12 points to his credit, while Sammy Black kept up his scoring to the extent of 13 digits to his side of the list. Reserves 24 — St. Mary's Frosh 23 The sweetness of this victory was marred by the rather questionable action of the Saint coach in ordering his team from the floor after they had refused to abide by the referee's decision in awarding a free throw to the Ignatians. Judging from the play of the two squads during the game, however, the Ignatians possessed a slight edge over their opponents and deserved to win.

City-wide interest was aroused in this game by a flock of posters and such proclaiming the first diamond clash of the two ancient rivals in several years. Jack Kavanaugh hurled the game for the Ignatians and his work made one think of the famous little girl with a curl, who was very good when she was good, but when she was bad . .. !!! Jack took his leave about the sixth, and Bill Barry finished up. Scherf for the Broncos featured with a homer. R H E Santa Clara 10 8 2 St. Ignatius 9 3 Batteries—Gottwalls and Blank; Kavanaugh, Barry and Higgins. Santa Clara Alumni 3 — St. Ignatius 9 If they could not pound the Broncos themselves, at least the Ignatians could take it out on their sires, which they proceeded to do with great gusto. Johnny Patridge chucked flossy ball, never being in danger except for a momentary flurry in the ninth, when the enemy scored two runs. Joe Henneberry contributed the piece de resistance when he doubled against the right center field boards for two bags with the sacks loaded. R H E St. Ignatius 9 9 1 Santa Clara Alumni 3 7 1 Batteries—Patridge and Higgins; Whelan, O'Neill and Harwood. St. Ignatius 9 — Associated Oil Co. 4 The Oil Company sported a flashy aggregation of ball hawks, but the throwing of Lefty Kavanaugh and the powerful Ignatian offensive was too much for them. Flach and O'Connor hit for the circuit, while third'sacker Gaetjen amassed a total of four out of four, one a triple, and another a double. R H E St. Ignatius 9 16 3 Associated Oil 4 7 2 Batteries—Kavanaugh and Higgins; English and Connaro.St. Ignatius 18— Blal{C'Moffitt'Towne 3 Preserve us from any more like this.

The big bat of Bob Higgins was a mighty factor in the varsity scoring, while Jack Kavanaugh turned in his usual steady game. R H E St. Ignatius........................... 4 5 1 Ignatian Council....................... 2 2 1 Batteries—Kavanaugh and Higgins; Kendall and McClure. St. Ignatius 17 — Union Oil 9 Most certainly an extremely decorative feather in the Ignatian bonnet. The Oilers possessed a flashy defense and a driving attack, but lacked con' centration against the hurling of Kavanaugh and Flach. The Ignatians scored ten runs in the third inning, sending Lefty McKenna to cover under a barrage of basehits. Hettich, Gaetjen and McQuade led the offensive with three blows apiece. R H E St. Ignatius.......................... 17 18 1 Union Oil Co........................... 9 12 3 Batteries—Kavanaugh, Flach and Higgins; McKenna, Oagard and Hutton. St. Ignatius Alumni 5 — St. Ignatius 2 Another unpleasant dose. Eddie Morrissey, a pitching idol in by'gone days, flashed some of his ancient brilliance and set the collegians of the present day down with ease. There was an idea and a purpose back of every ball pitched, an idea the Ignatians could not fathom and a purpose they could not defeat. Ohlandt and Fabris were instrumental in manufacturing the Alumni runs, while O'Day nipped many a varsity rally with scintillating plays at first base. Gaetjen solved Morrissey's delivery for three smacks, but received no aid from his teammates. Johnny Patridge pitched fine ball and hardly deserved to lose.

J., was organized at the beginning of the school year the St. Ignatius Boys Choir. Through the devoted efforts of their President, Edward Varni, and their able Organist, Joseph Strad" cutter, they soon proved themselves worthy of their Alma Mater. Repeatedly at the church exercises the people were inspired with devotion on hearing the time honored hymns and melodies harmoniously wafted to the throne of God. During the annual Students' Retreat, the services of the little choral club were gratefully appreciated. At the Midnight Mass the choir sang to perfect tion. Special mention should be made of our youthful soloist, Bobby Devlin.RALLIES The fall season of the athletic semester and the consequent football regime ushered in with many enthusiastic rallies. The initial rally was held on the fifteenth of October, the day before our game with Mission High. The entire Student Body attended the meeting for it was the occasion of the first official rally and anxiety prevailed among the members. No encouragement was needed from the yell leaders for the students to cheer lustily for the team, Alma Mater, the coaches, and for their individual classes. The Moderator, in opening the meeting, gave his usual short address and was seconded by his assistant, who introduced the members of the team. The football eleven next appeared and advanced upon the stage; and drew themselves into battle array. From this point of vantage Captain Hanlon delivered his remarks, stating his confidence in the team and his earnest hope of victory. The manager followed him and spoke clearly and decisively, leaving no shadow of doubt as to the merits of the line and the skill and vigor of the backficld. He represented the sacrifice that the players made for the honor of the school and asked the full support of the Student Body. The coach could do nothing after this comprehensive speech but to emphasize the manager's appeal by reiterating his remarks, using stronger and more convincing evi' dence and by expressing in a thoroughly enlightening manner the condition of football affairs. His impressive talk did much toward the accomplishment of his purpose, for there was an almost immediate increase in the depleted ranks of the squad. BLOCK LETTER RALLY Another great event in the form of a block letter rally occurred in the auditorium on December 4th. This rally was the occasion of the presenta tion of the awards to the athletes who had proved their worthiness during the football season. One of the interesting features of the program was the work of the Glee Club, which rendered the school anthem in a delightful fashion with fervent applause of their comrades. The musical selections, as supplied by the High School Orchestra, created the close harmony of the function and established the order in the meeting. The Moderator then announced the recipients of the block. In eulogistic phrases he spoke of the noble deeds and true sportsmanship of the players and offered congratulations for their excellent athletic prowess. Led by their captain, who had so ably conducted them to victory, the team were presented with their blocks by Fr. President with a fitting compliment. Incidentally, the class of Fourth Year “B" was presented with a silver trophy for the championship team in interclass indoor baseball, the indi' vidual players receiving their numerals.SENIOR RECEPTION TO MOTHERS The present seniors, the class of '26, have exercised their individuality, burrowed deeply into their resources, and presented an entirely new and original event. They have established a praiseworthy precedent in the realm of scholastic affairs. This event was the Seniors' reception to their parents. Under the direction of Fr. McFadden, S.J., the various members of the committees responded with great enthusiasm and produced the excellent evening's diversion. All semblance of formality was omitted and the meet' ing was a success as all present entered into the spirit of the occasion. Fr. President spoke in honor of the occasion and praised the efforts of the Seniors and expressed his favor of the undertaking. He also extolled the commendable attitude of the parents and implied his sanction for a Mother's Club. The High School Orchestra introduced each successive number with selections from its voluminous repertoire. The salutatory was rendered by William Clark who explained the nature of the reception. The event also marked the debut of the newly organized Glee Club whose efforts were well received by the assembly. An elocution' ist, Mr. Kane, recited a pathetic little ballad to conform with the harmony of the principal song, composed from a “mother" theme. He was accompanied by the Senior accomplished musician, Perkocha, and a chorus from the same class. The humor of the evening was supplied by two individual speakers: John Daly, who delivered a short recital, “Father Dan O'Malley", and Frank O'Neill, who won the welbrnerited applause of the audience with his “My First Recital". The refreshments were then served by many volunteer waiters and no one was omitted from their generosity. ELOCUTION CONTEST These occasions of public declamations are becoming more and more popular. They are being staged in larger halls and every effort is made to bring to the people the importance of these events. The High School looks on with interest and the audience which usually follows such affairs over' swells its generous proportions at each succeeding contest. The speakers arc delivering the classics while the elocutionists are the select few of the school. They who pass the strict elimination try'outs are considered fortunate and those who face the public at the final contest hold enviable positions in the eyes of their fellow students. This year's contest, which was presented on March 9th, was no excep' tion. The speakers, the audience and the school were honored with the presence of Dr. James Franklin Smith, who, with his colleagues, Mr. Eustace Cullinan and Mr. Thomas W. Hickey, officiated as the judges of the con'test. Dr. Smith is the donor of the Gold Medal which is conferred on the one judged the most proficient. For many years the Senior class has been overshadowed by more eloquent lower classmen. This year it remained for Frank H. O'Neill to acquire the coveted prize with a comic recitation, “Stell at the Picture Show". Clever mimicry, excessive pantomime and rhetorical ability are responsible for the justly awarded decision. The remarkable display of talent manifested by William N. Compagno secured for him the second place. He gave a rare exhibition of T. A. Daly's masterpiece, “Rosa". “The Highwayman” followed with third prize with Ralph Tichenor as the lucky one. The other contestants were worthy of their places and proved themselves elocutionists of merit. The High School Orchestra supplied the music for the program and con' tributed not a little to the evening's entertainment. MUSEUM ESSAY CONTEST The lower classes appeared in the city'wide contest of the M. H. dc Young Memorial Museum and gave a public acknowledgment of their pro ficiency in the literary field. Daniel Kelleher and George Olson, of First and Second Year High, respectively, were the authors of the winning essays and the possessorsof the trophies. Harry Robinson, another Sophomore, received honorable mention in the contest. GOLD MEDAL DEBATE Representing themselves as sages of the day, the youthful ancestors of future generations attacked and defended the question “Resolved: That This House Pities Its Grandchildren", on the evening of March 26th. It was the occasion of the Gold Medal debate of the Senate in K. C. Hall. Mr. William A. O'Brien, the chairman of the evening, explained the origin of the question and its relation to the youth of every generation. The affirmative side of the question was steadfastly maintained by James McGee, Wilson O'Brien and Harry B. Smith, Jr. Disproving the au' thenticity of the subject, the negative team, consisting of John H. Maher, George Littlejohn and Eneas Kane, swept on to a triumphant finish. Hon. John J. O'Toole, Mr. C. Harold Caulfield and Mr. William T. Sweigert acted as judges of the debate, the former announcing the decision. The Gold Medal, the gift of the Gentlemen's Sodality for which the de' baters competed, was awarded to the most brilliant speaker of the evening, George T. Littlejohn, whose polished manner and rhetorical ability, linked with a tinge of wit, merited the honorable position. The High School Orchestra generously responded with musical com' positions of grandeur and beauty. ITIMTIGSCoach Frank J. Needles Frank is a coach of whom St. Ig-natius is justly proud. A graduate of Gonzaga University, he came to us two years ago, and besides doing well with the football team, he has achieved the honor of coaching his basketball team to the first State Championship ever brought to San Francisco. His untiring labor and his good influence about the school have earned for him the sincere gratitude of all at St. Ignatius.McEnerney Kane Hanlon Cd xain 1926 Manager Cap«4»n I92S SEASON'S RECORD San Rafael 19 — St. Ignatius 0 The first game of the season, although a practice one, resulted in a dis appointment for the Ignatians. The team played well against a much heavier aggregation and the contest was much closer than the score indicates. Ray Maloney was the star of the game, making gains whenever called upon and quite often ran through more than half of the opponents, shaking off tacklers with uncanny skill. Captain Frank Hanlon also played in his stellar way. Vallejo 20 — St. Ignatius 0 The following week the squad traveled to Vallejo in an attempt to bring home a victory and again were disappointed. Luck seemed against them and Vallejo won. The Ignatians made ten first downs to their opponents' three but were unable to use them to scoring advantage. Captain Frank Hanlon and Gehres starred for the losers. Hitchcock 6 — St. Ignatius 12 About this time a few pessimists wandered about the school, foretelling the fate of the football team, but when they came through with a victorythese knockers disappeared and all was joy once more. The Ignatians, after trailing throughout the first half, settled down to real playing and early in the third quarter Ray Maloney bucked the pigskin over for a touchdown. Bill Wilson completed the score with a long seventy yard run in the last few minutes of play. Tamalpais 12— St. Ignatius 0 The next game played resulted in a surprise defeat, but it was a well earned victory for Tam. They heavily outweighed our team and none can realize how our lighter squad fought to keep down the score. Tam scored twice during the encounter. The first score came as a result of an intercepted pass, and again on a concealed play. George Olson, Johnny Knopp and Captain Hanlon were the main attractions and gave a wonderful exhibition of football. Mission 7 — St. Ignatius 0 A real break of the game, quickly taken advantage of by an alert Mission end, snatched seeming victory from the Ignatians in their first S. F. A. L. game and gave it to Mission. Our boys outplayed Mission and made long drives into their territory but again luck disappeared from our side and we suffered another defeat. It was a terrible surprise, as the game seemed in our grasp when someone erred. The ball was snapped from the center but no one was there to receive it. Miller, an opposing end, scooped up the lost ball and ran to a touchdown. Captain Hanlon, Ray Maloney and Knopp deserve special mention. Miller was the outstanding man for Mission. Lick.'Wilmerding 28 — St. Ignatius 0 The Lick game was a contest to be looked upon with admiration. They were fast, experienced, and outweighed our boys ten pounds to the man. Notwithstanding this unevenness of teams, the Tigers had to fight to score the touchdowns and earn their points. One consolation can be drawn from such a score: Lick turned out to be champions of the league. Galileo 0— St. Ignatius 18 This game was a regular swimming match and with both sides pretty fair swimmers the contest was very exciting. Very few gains were made by runs, slides having more to do with yardage gained. A five yard run meant an additional five yards on the slide. Three touchdowns were made during the contest, but owing to the wet condition of the ground conversions failed, as the ball would not bounce.The Big Came Over 5,000 fans visited Ewing Field to see the annual struggle between the Ignatians and the “Fighting Irish", and they saw one of the best games in the S. F. A. L. season. They saw the heavier Sacred Heart team pushed backwards, and they saw a form hurtle over the goal line and then rebound, and finally they saw the referee refuse to grant the score on the rule of for ward motion. The Ignatians were the team driving the opponents back and Johnny Knopp was the form that went over the line and came back again. The Irish scored two touchdowns; one on a blocked kick and the second on a fumble. It was a real game; hard fought but featured by breaks. In this game the team fought as they never fought before. All knew it was the best team that had ever faced the Irish and if ever there was a chance to win, it was now. The first half found the ball in our possession and in the territory of the enemy practically the whole time. Captain Frank Hanlon, Ray Maloney, George Olson and Johnny Knopp, although getting special mention, worked no more for the success of the team than did the others. All gave their utmost for the game, and it was only when the final gun sounded that they left the field to rest. Though the Sacred Heart team scored two touchdowns, the game was later awarded to us because of the ineligibility of two of the opposing players. Lowell 18 — St. Ignatius 6 The team for the next game bucked up against the heaviest eleven in the league, and made a good showing for themselves. Lowell scored three touch' downs and were forced to work harder than they expected in order to get them. Our light scrappers fought hard in this game to overcome the opposi' tion of the heavier team and their efforts were more than satisfactory. Lowell held firmly until the last period, when by means of an aerial attack, the Ignatians managed to run the ball the length of the field and cross the line for a marker. The try at goal failed. Thus ended the 1925 season with one of the best teams St. Ignatius High has yet put on the field.M. Leahy . Olson Barron Michkllktti Black Bray KnoppStapleton Gbhres Wilson Clark Skelly Mei MaloneyOUR STATE CHAMPIONSHIP BASKETBALL TEAM During the past year St. Ignatius High achieved an honor unique, not only in our own school, but also in all other City schools—a State Cham' pionship. The 145-Pound Team representing the high school and entered in the San Francisco Athletic League, triumphed over all opponents in this division, thereby winning the city championship in this weight. Permission was then asked of the officials to enter this same team as an unlimited quintet in the California Interscholastic Federation and seek State honors. The petition was acceded to and immediately a new schedule was entered upon and members of the unlimited team were added as reserve strength. An auspicious entry was made when the Ignatians won their first game from Tamalpais Union Hi, a team already defeated in a pre-season game. Next came the Pacific Grove five who also went down to defeat after a hard struggle. Both these games were played on our home court. The schedule then called for a short trip to meet the highly touted Palo Alto team at Palo Alto. The first half ended with us leading by one point. During the second half 17 points were scored against a lone tally by P. A. By far the hardest game of the year and really the deciding feature of the C. I. F. was the game at Napa. They had a reputation and lived up to it. Rated as the best in the State, they determined to maintain their prestige. Both teams were keyed up to their best, and from the opening whistle to the final gun, the score seesawed. With a half minute to play, Olson scooped a lost ball and dropped the deciding basket. The game ended immediately. Marysville Hi was played in San Francisco on a neutral court and the Ignatians ran up a 34 to 22 score with no difficulty. This settled the championship of northern California. The finals of the League were to be settled at Lemoore with the champs of the Southern Division. The Ignatians found no trouble with this team, running up an 11 to 2 score during the first half. The game ended 20 to 11. The members of the winning team, who were awarded block sweaters and gold basketballs, are: Captain Maloney, M. Leahy, Feerick, Burns, Olson, and Casey. To all those who participated in games in which the championship of a sectional division was decided, a block S. I. H. was granted by the school. To Coaches Jimmy and Frank Needles is due the lasting gratitude of the Student Body for their successful work in the athletic line and especially for this honor brought to the school and the city. Co-operation was the watchword of the entire team for the season and it was this, together with the coaching and assistance of the student bodies, not only of our own school, but of those of nearly all the other high schools in the city, that made the State Championship a reality.STATE CHAMPIONS Top: M.

The trans bay team was hopelessly outclassed by our team, which was superior in every department of the game. As the score indicates, the contest was a slugfest with Bray heading the list. Keane played a stellar game behind the bat and Marty Reichlin tossed a superb game besides contributing to the score by getting a home run. R H E St. Ignatius......................... 10 10 1 San Rafael............................ 1 6 4 St. Ignatius 4 — St. Mary's 5 When the Preps from Oakland obtained four runs in the first inning, things looked pretty bad until the sixth. In this inning the Ignatians also got their four and showed that they were far from being discouraged. In the seventh the St. Mary's shortstop hit a triple and scored the winning run on a squeeze play. Schied was the leading hitter for St. Ignatius. Galvin, Reichlin and Keane were the battery for us. R H E St. Ignatius.......................... 4 8 1 St. Mary s............................ 5 9 0 St. Ignatius 10 — Potter 0 After the defeat by the Preps the team came back and in a slugging match knocked the ball all over the lot and ran up a 10 run score against Potter. Everybody got their share of hits and the team did well at fielding. Kennealy managed to keep the opposition well under control at all times. R H E St. Ignatius......................... 10 8 1 Potter ............................... 0 1 0 St. Ignatius 1 —San Jose High 7 Whatever the trouble was, the boys looked far from being a ball club this day and were humiliated by the home guard at San Jose. They played in a listless fashion and were oil form in batting and fielding. Reichlin and Keane upheld the battery end of the team. R H E St. Ignatius.......................... 1 4 1 San Jose.............................. 7 6 1 St. Ignatius 0 — Santa Clara 12 The Valley does not seem an apt place to play for the Ignatians and they again went down miserably to defeat at the hands of the Santa Clara Preps. This was the third game of the week for Reichlin and the strain told onhim, the young Broncos finding no difficulty in solving his delivery and driving the ball to all corners. Besides holding the visitors scoreless, the Preps piled up 12 runs and sent the boys back to the city with some gloom and disappointment. Schied was the leading hitter for the losers, getting two out of four. R H E St. Ignatius 0 4 0 Santa Clara 12 16 1 St. Ignatius 0 — McClymojids 6 The offerings of Kennealy were far from baffling to the fast diamond nine of McClymonds and they nicked him for six runs in the first two innings and thereby settled the game for themselves. Kennealy was relieved by Reichlin, but the damage was done, although Marty pitched phenomenal ball, holding the team scoreless for the rest of the game. His teammates, however, did not make any response to his repeated calls for runs and all his efforts were in vain. A streak of poor base running struck the team this day and they did not show any class in this regard. Schied, Sullivan and Keane starred for us. R H E St. Ignatius 0 7 2 McClymonds 6 6 2 St. Ignatius 2 — California Frosh 7 Those who saw this game are still wondering how we lost. Trailing 2 to 0 up to the sixth inning, the California Babes came through with a vengeance in their half and when all the smoke had blown away six runs had crossed the plate and our chances of victory took wings and departed. R H E St. Ignatius........................... 2 7 2 California Frosh ...................... 7 8 1 St. Ignatius 4 — Mission High 3 In the opening game of the S. F. A. L. for us a rather exciting ninth inn' ing brought us a run and the victory. No closer finish could have been had without the game ending in a tie. The ninth opened with the Ignatians lead' ing, but when the Missions came to bat they made a final effort to win. Three men were gotten on base without an out being made against them. Two squeeze plays were made and two men were caught at the plate by flying dives of Ray Maloney. A hit brought in a man, but the third out was made as a Missioner tried to score from second and was caught at the plate by inches.

L. victory was added to the list when Jimmy McGee and Wilson O'Brien defeated Bobby Forbes and Aleazer in the 130pound class. In the singles of the unlimited division Joe Coughlin met Hirschfield of Commerce, while in the 130pound class McGee encountered Forbes of Lowell. To finish up the season in successful style Murphy and Coughlin met the doubles team of Commerce for the finals. With this showing behind them the Ignatian tennis team entered in the C. I. F. bid fair to repeat their S. F. A. L. wins and annex another title. In 1925 the Ignatians also romped off with the honors when Coughlin won the championship of the 1 3(Fpound class, while McGee and Coughlin as a doubles team also won the championship in their turn. Of the team of 1926 but Coughlin and Pegg will not graduate and the foundation of a good 1927 team is already laid.S. F. A. L. SWIMMING MEET In the recent swimming meet held at Sutra Baths, St. Ignatius managed to score 6 points thereby earning fourth place on the list. Red O'Connor of Third Year was responsible for five of these points by nosing out all competitors in the diving. Red had little difficulty here, being capable of making the prettiest dives for the day. He duplicated his per formance of last year, when he also won first place in this event. Bill Hopper of First Year made the other tally by coming in third in the 220 yard swim. Considering how both these are still in the lightweight class and were competing with those in the unlimited division and against more experienced swimmers, we can congratulate them on their showing. TRACK MEET As we go to press the S. F. A. L. track meet has not been held. Conse quently, we can do no more than comment on the excellent possibilities foreshadowed by the early season work of Coach Charlie Hunter's track squad. In the unlimited division our hopes are pinned fast on speedy Billy Wilson, around whom clusters a group of other stars such as Gerald Doyle, Werner, Brodigan, Morabito and Gene Smith. In the lightweight division, headed by Frank O'Gara, St. Ignatius has already shown a decided superiority by overwhelming the Lowell light' weights in a dual meet in which the Ignatians captured every first place and totaled a score of 82 to 55. Bill Wilson is the star sprinter of the Ignatian squad and his early season record of 52 seconds for the 440 gives him a good chance to win this event. Werner is capable of making 6 feet 5 inches in the high jump, a record which local prep contenders should find difficult to overcome. Kclleher's ability to put the shot 44 feet should assure him at least of a place in this event. The 110'pounders are exceptionally strong, having brilliant performers in three or four events. Such lads as Gerald Meagher, Cabrera, Padilla, Laferty and others have all proved their ability in the recent Lowell meet. Any one who has seen Franky O'Gara run the hundred predicts a briL liant career for him on the cinder path, for he seems to have all the quali' fications needed in the young Paddock that he is.THIRD YEAR HIGH "A Tof : Campi ilia.

It was one thing to read adventure and another thing to live it and no printed page could now satisfy Tommy's mounting appetite for thrills. From now on, resolved Tommy, he was going to live, not merely exist. No longer would he be a nobody in a world of nobodies. Tommy was nineteen and normal. Although he had been working but a year he was a convert to the doctrine that the alarm clock and the time clock are the only obstructions to man in his pursuit of happiness. Tommy was not lazy. He was bubbling over with all the vivacity concomitant with youth and the thought of wasting his talent on the sedentary duties of a clerkship at seventeen'fifty a week galled him. Tommy wanted a job that would entertain him, a job like that of an actor, a taxidermist, a leader of a geographical society expedition or a window trimmer. But Tommy was not so sure that he wanted any kind of a job because a job meant time clocks and bosses. The sea story that he had just been reading had left him still more uncertain. As his imagination left the page he visualized himself as a modern nomad of the deep, carefree and iron'willed captain of a carefree and iron'willed crew. It pleased Tommy immensely to think that he was so constituted as to make a perfect specimen of the standard type of adventurer—gallant, vital, reckless, and just bad enough to escape the anathema of “good boy". Oh, for the life on the briny deep with the careening deck underfoot and the saline breezes doing Aeolian harp stunts on the rigging overhead and, yes, we'll put that in, too, a crazy drunken crew beating down the door of the cabin wherein stand I, Tommy, with composure and a raised pistol! Abruptly, Tommy's errant thoughts tumbled down to the open book lying in his lap. It had cruelly awakened him from an ecstacy of romance. Tommy despised that book for that, and anyhow, it's disgusting to read a story when you know it's impossible for you to live it. So Tommy closed his book with a bang. “Someone wants to speak to you on the phone, Tom," called a voice from the hall. It was Tommy’s sixteen year old sister. Betty, the announcer of the phone call, and Tommy, the recipient of the phone call, had more between them than anything the Bell System had trademarked. First, it was Tommy who fortnightly embezzled his own buff envelope of small change that Betty's budget might be benefited over and above what mother allowed. Secondly, only three years separated Betty’s and Tommy's worlds, and three years are not sufficient to prevent the association of their orbs. Tommy was just swell.It was Jake on the phone. Sometimes we have people in our acquaintance not by any choice of ours but forced upon us by proximity of residence. Jake lived near Tommy. He had phoned Tommy to meet him in front of Reilly's in half an hour. Jake abrogated reception formalities on the occasion of Tommy's arrival. “Come inside and we'll gab while shootin' a game," he directed. “We'll get a table in the corner.” As Tommy demolished the triangle with the cue ball, Jake began to purr confidently. “Listen, Tommy, me and you've been thick pretty long now, so you were the first guy I thought of. I’ve been doin' a little work for a coupla months, but it's grown too small for me. I want to pull off some big time stuff. What do you say if we go inta cahoots and clean up on a coupla houses? Listen, Tommy," continued Jake argumentatively, as if Tommy had raised an objection. “It's a snap. Those rich blokes got so much stuff lying around their joints that we could cart away half of it and they wouldn't miss a thing. You can rake in all kinds of jack. Don't have to work if you don't want to, but it's best to keep your job as a stall.” Tommy was disgusted. He might have expected something like that from Jake, but he tried valiantly to be decent. “Nope,” he said, “I can't see that stuff at all.” They finished the game in silence, Jake speaking only to ask for the cue chalk. Tommy made a break for home as soon as he could get away politely. Entering the house, he went straight to his room and without turning on the light, slumped into a chair, sullen and dejected. This episode with Jake was not the only depressing factor of the day, for he was not out of bed ten minutes when his buoyancy suffered its first demolition. While gulping down breakfast he was reading the sporting page, which he had folded and propped against the sugar bowl. His mother, after an impatient glance at the clock, which was then indicating the eight'thirty mark, snatched the journal of athletic activities from under his nose with the admonition to get a move on. Just then Betty passed through the room on her way to school, wearing a thing of odium and an abomination forever. It was champagne colored, the prevalent hue, and had light brown fur around the cuffs and collar. Tommy could bring himself around to tolerate the material and cut of the coat, but the fur curdled his aesthetic sense. In the store where Betty bought it they told her the fur was squirrel, but Tommy knew the saleswoman had her zoology confused. In all seasons he loathed the fur, but in rainy weather it approached in appearance that which he had always believed it to be, an Airedale pelt. Not wishing to make Betty conscious of the wrap's shoddi' ness, he had never expressed his opinion of it but he was impatient for the day when she would discard it.On his way to work he had conjectured on the time when Betty would be due for a new outfit, but his knowledge of the family's shopping intervals would not permit him to set the date within two months. Sixty days more of the tawny eyesore and his seventy dollars a month was incapable ot abating the nuisance. Tommy had observed that Betty could wear clothes. Some girls never do look dressed up, but Betty possessed in no mean measure that attribute designated by the alhencompassing term, class. For some months it was his secret ambition to see Betty resplendent in a cloak that sold for a price in the early three figures. If anybody could bring out the possibilities in a garment, Betty could and he longed to afford her the opportunity. Tommy pulled himself out of the chair and walking over to the wall, turned on the light. The first thing that caught his eye was a book lying on the table under the concentrated beam of a goose necked reading lamp. He sauntered over and picked it up, weighing it in his hand like a despondent fingering a gun. It was one of the “Boston Blackie" series which he had read several years ago. He recalled that he had enjoyed that story at the time. Tommy had a sincere appreciative sympathy for good felons, that is, for wrongdoers who display a virtuous abstinence in professional life. He harbored no abhorrence for the second story man who second'Storied dis' erectly, leaving other species of malefactions to their respective exponents. “Boston Blackie" exemplified Tommy's beloved housebreaker. Mentally synopsising the story he remembered that “Boston Blackie" on several oc' casions had turned the emoluments of a night's work over to lady friends, or was it a lady friend? Tommy, too, had a lady friend and she stood in need of emoluments but she didn't stand much of a chance of getting them at present. Somehow, although “Boston Blackie's" characterization was vague in his mind. Tommy could not remember him vacillating in the face of ad' verse circumstances and denying his lady friend the necessaries of life be' cause they were not conveniently obtainable. In just such a case as Tommy's, “Boston Blackie" would deftly search of a night some of the best private wardrobes in the municipality for feminine raiment of suitable size and quality. If the lady friend inquired of its origin, why, it was purchased, perhaps from a broker of unredeemed goods of welhto'do women. That was just what “Boston Blackie" would do and Tommy could not make himself condemn him for it. “Boston Blackie" had had his name in the papers many times. People had heard about him but they didn't hate him as they did other crooks. He was brainy. He was a knigbt of the night. People secretly admired him and hoped he wouldn't get caught. It took brains to be a “Boston Blackie". As much brains, concluded Tommy, as any captain commissioned by Conrad or Sabatini or Melville. Then, too, “Boston Blackie's" profession was practicaland not highly offensive even though it was unethical. Further, it was clever and cleverness ameliorates a multitude of larcenies. It was the practicality of “Boston Blackie" that first led Tommy to resolve to emulate him. Betty did need a coat. The resolution was further confirmed by Tommy's early-born urge to outwit the constabulary. Attempting to satisfy some little scruples on the ethicacy of his after dinner avocation, he promised himself to take only a coat, but deep within himself he knew that the coat was but a hastily summoned provocation for the beginning of a protracted series of venturesome forays which he calcu' lated would vary his jaded evening hours. “Tiptoe Tommy" would be a good sobriquet. Tommy hoped the news' papermen would think of that when they were writing up his escapades. Tommy hoped that the night city editor would send a feature writer along with the regular reporter to the scene of his nocturnal labors. A regular reporter doesn't catch the color in a story and Tommy's work was going to have color. Momentarily emboldened. Tommy stepped out into the hall and called up Jake who was still at Reilly's. Evidently Jake was skeptical but Tommy parleyed. “I'll take you up on that—you know what you said tonight. No, I'm not kidding you . . . yes, I know, but I've changed my mind . . . that's straight. Why so early? Oh, yes, I see ... at nine o'clock, then. At Reilly's? So long, Jake. What? No . . . forget that. I'm not trying to string you. So long." Tommy stepped back into his room. Tomorrow would not give him much time in which to make extensive plans, yet he must make tomorrow night's affair a first class job. Tommy was not going to serve an apprenticeship. No modest beginning for him. Arsene Lupin pulled his first job with polish and technique and Tommy was going to make Arsene Lupin look like a pilferer of gum machines. ♦ “What's the matter with this place?" asked Tommy in a low tone as he laid his hand on Jake's arm to check his progress up the street. Jake studied the house before him long and steadily as if he had been asked to appraise its value. “Nothin' as far as I can see," he finally answered. “Kinda gloomy lookin', though." The residence in question was gloomy looking. The empty blackness of the windows, aggravated by drawn shades, loomed up dismally against the pallid paint of the house. Set back some distance from the sidewalk and situated midway between two street lamps but enjoying the light of neither,it was an invitation to the night prowler. Yet the very atmosphere of the place was its best protection, for some portentous presence which enveloped the place repelled the depredator by its gloom. Perhaps it was the sorrow of a recent death; perhaps it was the horror of a tragedy; perhaps the disgrace of a public crime. Tommy felt it as he stood on the sidewalk and looked at the house, but with Tommy there was no turning back—now. He led the way across the lawn. A quick inspection of the front windows gave no promise of an entry from that side. The two skulked around to the side of the house. Jake spied a window open a few inches from the top. “Look, Tommy," he whispered, pointing to the window. “Won't have to use a jimmy. Let's get in here.' Tommy buzzed his assent. Carefully raising the window, he wriggled in over the sill and awaited Jake, who closed the window after him. After almost a minute of dead silence, Jake's flashlight projected a yellow cone across the room. “Some guy's bedroom,” observed Jake as he swung his light around to all corners. “The bed ain't been slept in, though.' “Got a gun?" asked Tommy. “Yeh." “Gimme it.” Jake showed no reluctance in yielding the weapon. A gun adds ten years to most sentences. The touch of the steel thrilled Tommy. He was nervous, but enjoying himself wantonly. Jake was unaffected, but this thing was a business with him. Tommy marveled at his accomplice's apathy. “Com'ere,” summoned Jake under his breath. He had opened the top drawer of a dresser and his light disclosed a few articles pertaining to a young man's wardrobe. “We'll take just the cuff links," he muttered, a little disappointed. “The rest of the junk ain't worth luggin' out. Let's make the next room. Gotta get more than this." “Why not clean out this drawer?" persisted Tommy. “You're leaving some pretty good stuff. I'm going to sweep out the place—just to get a kick out of it. You can have my share when we get outside. I couldn't bring it home, anyway." “Aw, all right, all right, we'll take"-the click of a latch somewhere in the house silenced Jake. Tommy drew back to the wall and tiptoed his way to the window. Then came the realization that such an exit before anythinghad happened would not be consistent with the conduct of a gentleman adventurer. Shame and daring brought Tommy back to Jake's side. In the front of the house a door closed with a slight thud. Footfalls, light and soft but not meant to be muffled, came down the hall. A switch snapped in the next room and light shone under the connecting door. “Someone’s just getting in," whispered Tommy in the softest tones he could. It seemed to him that the person in the next room was very quiet. For a few minutes now he had heard not a sound. Didn't the occupant intend to go to bed? At length Tommy's straining ears and pumping heart were re' warded. A moan followed by several convulsive sobs drifted in from the next room. Down the hall came a person with padded footsteps. “Why, my dear, what's the matter! Are you sick?" “No'n'no, I'm not sick, mother," answered the sobbing one. “Didn't you have a good time at the dance?” continued the mother. “Come, Aileen, do stop your crying and tell me.” “Oh, mother! Did I have a good time at the dance? Why did you ask me that? I was never so humiliated. All evening I saw people slyly pointing me out to their friends. I knew what they were saying: There’s Aileen Bostwick, Bill Bostwick's kid sister. Bill was caught taking funds from his boss a few months back. He's got about two years ahead of him yet'. That’s what they were saying, mother. Oh, I know it, I know it. And all the boys were so changed. They acted as if they were ashamed to be seen on the floor with me. I've heard hundreds of excuses tonight, hundreds, mother. Here, look at my program. I'm never, never going out again. I just can't.” “Some silly jane squawkin',” broke in Jake almost aloud. “Come on, Tommy, let’s go in and stick 'em both up. They must have some stuff in that room. Come on, there ain't no men in the house.” “Shut up, you!” hissed Tommy. “Don't you shoot your face off so loud again. We're getting out of here right now and don't you make any noise about it, either.” Jake remonstrated. He was sure that there was a fistful of lavalieres and brooches in that room to be had for the asking. But Tommy’s voice had an imperious ring that Jake had never heard before. Instinctively he felt his hip pocket. Then he remembered. At Tommy's next demand for an exit Jake acquiesced, for he was sensible if not honest. Tommy had scarcely closed the window when Jake commenced his com' pliments.“So you’re the guy who was going to do so much tonight. You're the guy who wanted to pack away everything in sight. Boy, you sure did fall flat, and just because you heard some little sissy bawlin’. Say, you're game all right. You're yellow—just plain yellow—nothin' else to it! You spoiled a good night's work for me. Talk about your easy hauls. That's rich—scared out by a boo-hooin's twist.” Jake's epilogue was a derisive laugh. Tommy absorbed the tirade with magnanimity. He hurried across the lawn to the sidewalk and down the street in the direction of the car line, seemingly unconscious of his companion who walked at his side wholly taken back by Tommy's non'combative disposition. Jake had always known Tommy as a young fellow who was just as un' likely to condone such an insult as he had just given as he was to be chased out of a dark room by a little girl who didn't even know he was there. Yet, argued Jake, Tommy had done just these two things tonight. Jake began to experience an awful feeling that Tommy had turned recreant. He would attempt to have the defendant evince himself. “Well, bad man, what have you got to say for yourself?" asked Jake, assuming a tone of raillery that he did not now feel. “Jake," answered Tommy meditatively, “I don't think I really knew what this game meant. I had an idea that it was all fun—just a grown-up man's fun. I figured that all the hardships were on my side—dodging bullets, hiding from cops and things like that. I didn't figure on------shamefaced kid sisters. I've got a kid sister, Jake, and she’s just at the age when she's starting to go around to parties and dances. Believe me. I'm not going to do like that Bostwick bloke did. He's cooped up, but nobody sees him. They see his sister, though. Gee, suppose I had been caught in that house! And I had a gat on me, too. Here, take this!”CRIME AND THE NEW DECALOGUE By Raymond L. Sullivan '28 Prise winner in Oratorical Contest (abridged) TODAY this country finds itself placed in a most unenviable predica' ment, a predicament evidenced by the appalling immensity of its pres' ent wave of crime. It is true that neurologists are trying to explain away crime, it is true that in our Legislatures law is trying to curb it, and in our schools education is trying to prevent its further advancement. But despite the efforts of science, we hear of the armored car in the streets of our Eastern cities and the machine gun above the cashier's window in some of their large banks. Despite the efforts of the law, Chicago, which had one murder a day, now sees one both morning and afternoon; despite the efforts of education the thug and the footpad stalk more boldly in our streets and to our body politic the leach of corruption still clings tenaciously, glutting itself on the people's money. For the causes of this social menace, we need not look long nor far. They are manifest in the home with its authority broken down by defiant youth or totally disrupted by divorce—the home which is now sending individuals who have not heeded authority in its first stages, to be humbly subservient to it in its last; they are manifest in the obvious laxity of our criminal pro' cedure; they are manifest in the doctrine of gross materialism which like a malignant growth has spread throughout our whole social system and pene trated our courts, calling murderers and the thug the victims of unrestrain' able impulse, to be pitied, yes, to be aided, yes, but held responsible? No! Yet to remedy our predicament, we still hear some say, "Let us have more education and we will have less crime." But we have been getting more edu' cation, we are getting more education. And is our crime being lessened? Have we now comparatively less murders, or less thefts, or less assaults than we had in the days of Horace Mann? Without a doubt, we can say, "No”. Why? Because education is not a preventative of crime. Crime is an act of the will: education a development of the intelligence. That indescribable something by which the murderer says "I will kill," and the thief "I will steal," is far different from that other internal functioning which reasons out for the student the problems of calculus or chemistry and the invigorating force of the one cannot be applied to the ills of the other. We find that the very same institutions which graduate some of our most brilliant, learned citizens are equally capable of turning out into the world some of our most crafty, clever criminals, and some of these institutions, as one writer has soaptly put it, we find increasing crime by “teaching flaming youth that free will is a myth and responsibility for one's actions a metaphysical absurdity." Others have said that we need more laws to control an increasing population. Yet the more laws we enact, the more lawlessness we have. Our statute books are filled, and our penitentiaries as well. It is easy to see that legislation says “thou shalt" or “thou shalt not," but does it go any further? Does it put the spirit of obedience in the hearts of the citizens? No! And that is what we need most. We have the law, yes; what we want now is the determination to obey the law, and this determination to obey the law is not the by-product of legislation. Now modern science contends that it has found the solution to our crime problem. Enthusiastic scientists judge the causes of crime by physical criteria and with their new science, the “science of human heredity," maintain that they can build a race free from crime. But is this materialistic theory the solution? Surely no thoughtful person who sees before him the necessity of a future life, and the spiritual soul which that implies, and the free will contained in that soul, would say yes. For crime is an act of that free will, an immaterial faculty, which may be modified but never controlled by material physical functioning. Neither science, nor legislation, nor education can of themselves remedy our crime wave. In desperation we ask is there a remedy? Is there an outcome from this seemingly inevitable social chaos? There is and has been. One hundred and thirty years ago, our first President mentioned it in his farewell address, when he said, that of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality arc indispensable supports. Only in last October our present President reiterated that thought when he declared that the utmost ingenuity on the part of the police powers will be substantially all wasted if there does not exist on the part of the people a strong and vigorous determination to observe the law. Such a determination cannot be produced by the government. My own opinion is that it is furnished by religion. The remedy for our crime wave lies in religion. The citizen will abide by the law, because there exists in himself a firm determination to do right which is the product of religion. That determination is an act of the will; the present challenge to authority is voiced by the will. Our only course, then, is to cure this disease of the will with the medicine for the will, and the only such medicine which we have, the only such medicine which we will ever have, is religion. Operating in the home, it will prevent this breaking down of parental authority, this weakening and disruption of our social foundations; operating in the world at large, it will exterminate these doctrines of gross materialism which are making such a ridiculous travesty of our courts. Once this was a Christian nation and a law-abiding one; now sixty per cent of its people are without creed, nine out of ten of its childrenare growing up in ignorance of their God, and crime runs rampant in our streets. Why? Because we are trying to maintain morality with a new decalogue, the decalogue of education and of science and of law. That decalogue, by itself, is utterly failing. It is about time that we return to the old decalogue of Mount Sinai, and with Washington admit that “national morality cannot prevail an exclusion of religious principle." Let us not abandon our search after knowledge, let us not forsake our legislature or leave our legal defects uncorrected. Yet on the other hand, let us bear in mind that, primarily, it is not the enforcement of the law, but the determination of the citizen to obey it; primarily, it is not the statute books, but the will resolving to heed its provisions; primarily, it is not our legal deficiences, but the evil intention which takes advantage of them. If we want morality, and we do, we cannot merely legislate it; if we want moral growth, and we do, we will not find it in mere intellectual growth. Our chief executive has expressed it well; ‘There is no form of education which will not fail, there is no form of government which will not fail, there is no form of reward which will not fail. Redemption must come through sacrifice and sacrifice is the essence of religion." IDYLLS Whisper to me, ye Muses gracious. Thoughts of the odorous woodland spacious; Give to my pen the impulse gay To chant of Nature a lovely lay. . . . Bathed in sunshine warm and bright. Stirred by the zephyrs airy and light; What can compare with the wond'rous sight Of a forest tow'ring in mid'day height. Wand'ring in cool of the sylvan shade, Watching the shafts of the sunlight rayed Through the leafy branches that swaying above Whisper the language of the trees as they move. Philip Haggard.UTOPIAN EDUCATION By Frank E. Ruggles 29 Second Prise in Oratorical Contest FROM time immemorial, intellectual endowments have been crowned with bays of honor; education has been the idohgod of the human race. Men have worshipped at its shrine with an Eastern idolatry. Men of great intellect have been regarded as demigods. The multitude have looked upon them with awestruck wonder. With cheerful and reverent hands the world has crowned education with its richest honors. Its pathway has been strewn with flowers; its brow has worn the loftiest plumes; it has sat upon the proudest throne; it has held the mightiest scepter of power. The American people were never so devoted to the cause of education as they are now. Annually philanthropists increase their gifts and legislatures enlarge their appropriations for the promotion of this great interest. The year now closed has been characterized beyond all preceding years by the vast sums devoted to schools of all grades, from the kindergarten to uni' versities. Now all of the great thinking men of today realize the urgent necessity of education. No man within the limits of this broad land should plead ig' norance for moral delinquency or political heresy. Each one should know his rights and the means of maintaining them—should understand all his duties, personal, relative and divine, and enjoy nature by a just appreciation of the wisdom of her laws and the beauty and sublimity of her exhibitions. And all this is absolutely necessary for the welfare of the country! ignor ance, like a shackle, must be broken. But while recognizing the value of education, it is possible for us to overvalue it, and ascribe to it a power which it does not possess. We may make a fetish of it and superstitiously attribute to it the divine power of regeneration. Indeed, this is precisely what many among us are doing. They are vainly imagining that all wrong originated in ignorance, and that universal education will put a stop to all iniquity in all the earth. Although culture has its share in diminishing evil, nothing is further from the truth than that universal education would eliminate all wrong. Knowledge, I concede, is a means of propagating virtue, and I might add, a state of ignorance is incompatible with general piety; still there is no necessary connection between education and virtuous conduct. In knowh edge there is no high and holy; no uniform standard of right and wrong; nothing to restrain the passions and curb the will; nothing to hold the con' duct to rectitude by the richness of its rewards, or the might and eternity otits punishments. The mind may teem with knowledge yet the character be destitute of honor, justice, mercy and benevolence. The astronomer may explore the heavens and read intelligibly the language of the stars, yet defraud his neighbor. The historian may know for himself the triumphs and defeats, the rise and fall of empires, yet fulfill no duty, relative or divine. The judge may grace the ermine by the depth of his science and the extent of his legal lore and still receive from the hand of wealth or power the wages of corruption. The poet, fancy'winged, may traverse earth, and sea, and air, yet see no God at all. Now, as a striking illustration of this universal devotion to education, an illustration that well exemplifies the trend of our modern education, let us consider a measure that has been endorsed by many people, in various localities throughout the length and breadth of this country. It is one that, although singular in purpose, well demonstrates the all'embracing principle involved. This measure is to the effect that all aspirants for public office be required to pass a civil service examination such as will thoroughly test their worldly knowledge in order to determine their eligibility for election. Now is it hoped that by testing these candidates in such a manner, all the corruption, all the graft, all the inefficiency that exist in the operation of our govern' ment today will be done away with? But are these portentous evils due to ignorance? Decidedly, no. They are assignable not to lack of education, but to the lack of something greater and nobler, namely, morality. I daresay that a man aspiring to a public office would not receive even so much as a passing thought from the populace, let alone a vote, if he relied for the success of his candidacy solely upon the tact that he was an inteh lectual genius. No, that man who drew your attention and respect and admiration had those virtues which are especially needed in a public official. These virtues are, unflinching fidelity to principles, sincere patriotism, a devotion to the true honor and happiness of the country, magnanimity, dis' daining whatever is at all objectionable in means and ends, conscientious respect for the rights of all men, and civil courage, which is as noble as military courage and far less common. George Washington was not highly educated, but he solved wisely and promptly the issues by which he was confronted. Aaron Burr was the most cultured man of his day, and by the skill which he acquired through edu' cation he created problems for the Republic. Benedict Arnold held the sword of education in his hand but with it he drew the country's life blood. It is plainly evident then that it is not more educated men, but more men of integrity that our country, in common with all other nations, needs most urgently. To put it roughly, something like this, more depends upon char acter than specialized training; determination, strong sincerity and integritycarry one farther than a mere knowledge of the rules of the game; one sees that people who rely on their knowledge of the rules of the game often come to grief. The truth of the principles I have applied to our public officials is brought home to us more strongly by the knowledge acquired in our contact with all of those around us. The world presents today two phases of education: education bereft of morality and education coupled with morality. One comes to illumine, the other to purify. One expands the mind, the other directs and sanctifies motives. One is light, beautiful, it is true, yet often cold as Alpine reflections; the other is warm, and genial, and vivifying. Intellectual improvement alone is not sufficient. There is a widespread dif' ference between the education of thought and of moral principle; the ideal is a perfectly blended combination of the two. They must walk hand in hand. The world has never been saved and never can be redeemed by mentality alone. Morality is far more vital to the progress of civilization. As a guide we should never forget for a moment the teaching of our Lord, namely, that a pure heart will clarify the mind.DEAD By James McGf.e, H. S. '26 MRS. ALLEN was dead. “There was no doubt about it." It was duly registered in the records of demises. You could find it at the Board of Health and, better still, you could sec her gravestone with the eulogium of her life upon it. But there was one remarkable fact about the death of Mrs. Allen: she did not know that she was dead. And there was another almost equally as remarkable: she had died in her nightgown of apoplexy. Mrs. Allen put the blame on Mrs. Rennie, her next door neighbor. You see, one night Brady's (they live across the street) caught sight of flames creeping along the roof of Mrs. Rennie's. The first inkling Mrs. Allen had of it was the sound of firemen's axes breaking into her wall in compliance with that old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Now, Mrs. Allen was a very irascible lady, with an equally irascible temper and three daughters. And when the fire was over and the firemen had gone home, she was thoroughly roused over three things: she had run into the street in her nightgown: she could not rouse her youngest daughter and, last but not least, her husband had not come home yet. And so long after all was quiet, she sat upon the watch like a certain feminine character of cartoon fame and waited for her spouse. The longer she waited the angrier she got, and when her beloved finally entered the threshold of his hearth slightly inebriated, the good woman so vent her spleen in calling him a worthless vagabond, deserter of his family and other pet synonyms for husband that she fell into a fit of apoplexy from which she never recovered to mortal eyes. However, she had no sooner been covered by the warm, wormy sod than she awoke and sat up astounded in her coffin. "Now," she said, “how in the world did I ever get into this stuffy place?" She was shocked and a bit terrified to hear a hollow sounding voice remark in warning, “Do not desecrate the Land of the Dead." “The Land of the Dead," Mrs. Allen exclaimed. "But I am not dead.” “Not dead, not dead," echoed a hundred hollow muffled voices from the graves around, “Ha, ha, not dead!” Mrs. Allen lroked about her, rising in her box to see the source of the first voice. Sitting at the foot of her coffin was a little old woman, dried skin, toothless, no eye in one socket, a black patch over the other. “Ho, ho!" said this apparition to the astounded but not overcome woman. “So you think you are not dead. Why you are just as dead as the rest of us. Just as dead as I am."“Well, you old hag," said our dauntless heroine, “since you say I am, I must be, because I can explain it no other way. But I wish you would respect your superiors. I am much better dressed than you are, you old hussy, and I wish you would find your place." Now we might as well explain right here that when she was alive Mrs. Allen had been an inveterate gossip. And so her present state did not faze her in the least. “Admirable, admirable," said the old woman, continuing the conversa' tion, “I really think that you will do. You seem to live up to your advance reputation. Come along with me," and she waved her stick in a beckoning way. Mrs. Allen's curiosity was aroused and she followed, nothing loath. Presently they came to a great iron door set in rock. Here the old witch knocked and telling her protege to be silent, opened the d(x r and led her inside. The room was filled with women, and they were all talking as fast and as hard as they could talk, pointing and gesticulating at one another, whispering into one another's ear and looking at their neighbor as though she were going to be the subject of their next conversation. The arrival of a new member set them into silence, but they quickly burst out again on the subject of the styles and fashions of the world they had left, and on the style of Mrs. Allen's clothes in particular. Mrs. Allen warmed to the atmosphere and wished she could give it to that old biddy over in the corner, and would have, only she had been warned to silence. Suddenly, the room, at the sound of a shrill siren, dropped into a chilled stillness. An ominous voice was heard to announce, “All hail to Her Highness, the Great and Most Illustrious Monarch, Mrs. Paul Pry." And as a ferocious looking woman ten feet tall, with a nose like a hawk and a pair of stovedid glasses entered followed by a woman with a large book, the whole assembly bowed down before her. This awful individual turned to the lady with the huge tomelike volume. “Mrs. Grundy, read the account of the new arrival," and she looked ferociously in the direction of Mrs. Allen, who for some reason felt her knees shaking together in a sharp tattoo. That estimable female commenced her category. “Mrs. Eliza Allen, born ------, died -----; ruined the life of young wife by scandalizing her hus band.” The assembly clapped in applause. “Caused a family quarrel that ended in the extermination of the entire group in feuds."Mrs. Allen actually felt complimented and pleased, so happy the women seemed. Just as she was going to turn to one of her former friends who had departed the earth before her, and tell more delicious scandal, she felt the atmosphere suddenly turn icy cold. Mrs. Grundy was just reading, “When she could have ruined ten families by communicating her knowledge to her neighbors and caused several (ires and killings, she suddenly repented and refused to say a word to anyone." “We will not have her," the awful crowd shrieked. “We will not have her." Her Great and Most Illustrious Monarch Mrs. Paul Pry turned to the old woman of the stick and said, “Remove this woman from our midst: she is unworthy." Suddenly Mrs. Allen lost all consciousness and, waking, found herself in a wonderful white place filled with gold and marble, and incense, with the tune of the harp supplanting all other sounds. A beautiful angel presented herself before Mrs. Allen and said, “Take this harp and play upon it and live happily with us in Paradise." At this Mrs. Allen, antagonized by the beauty of the creature, answered sharply, “If you please, I do not play the harp, I would much rather talk." “Then," said the angel, sadly, “this is no place for you," and with that Mrs. Allen went to sleep again, and when she woke up she found herself in another place which we won't mention because it isn't nice to mention, where she was presented with a fork and a tail forked like her tongue. And now Mrs. Allen is convinced that she is dead.AN APPRECIATION Wc wish to thank, all those who have so gov erously aided us in any way in the making of this Annual.
