Frontispiece Dedication Foreword In Memoriam The College Administration Classes Activities Organizations Athletics Alumni Literary
HIS 1928 volume of The Ignatian is not
designed for the men now at St. Ignatius College. The events it recounts, the faces it pictures, are as well known to the men of the college as they are to the compilators of this yearbook.
Nor can it purport to be a memoir recorded by the older students for perusal by the younger, for no one has attended for more than one year the St. Ignatius College we have endeavored to chronicle.
It is for the benevolent observers of the college that we publish this volume of The Ignatian, to apprise them of the strange, new spirit which has abruptly emerged within the year.

Sperming giant ambitions, budding fair Slender slips, alive in freshened air—
Living, full, and freely, void of care.
Golden glories—heartstreams overflown, Rustles of the fledglings, self-styled grown— Fervor that the wiser will condone In Summer.
Rumination, haunting hints of death— Gilded dream leaves, cold wind scattereth, Stilled souls, tasting of the real’s breath In Autumn.
Trunks bare, staring silent in the dawn Of a strange day, forgetful of the song In things. The happiest year is gone.

Hail, Saint Ignatius, hail to thee Who reignest so triumphantly
On city’s heights—so fair to see,
The theme of loving song.
Unfurl thy banners, Green and Gold As echoes every hill and vale,
The homage of our grateful hearts,
All hail to thee, all hail!
Hail, Saint Ignatius, hail to thee We pledge our lasting loyalty.
True and steadfast we shall be To thee, our Mother blest.
Through endless days thy sons shall strive To make thy name and fame prevail.
O Alma Mater glorious,
All hail to thee, all hail!

NO man, with the exception of those immediately connected with the coaching staff, is more responsible for the success of St. Ignatius athletic teams than Mr. Lorenzo M. Malone, S. J., moderator of athletics.
Mr. Malone came to St. Ignatius in the fall of 1926, when the college had only two years of football competition to its credit. He immediately swung into the course of athletic events here and carried to realization within two years the expectations of those who laid the foundation for the varsity in 1924.
It requires a special talent to initiate a movement and it requires a talent of another description to carry that movement to fruition. Of this latter species we are certain that Mr. Malone is the possessor and we have no reason to doubt that he also has the former.
Mr. Lorenzo M. Malone, S. J. Moderator of Athletics
In August, 1926, when Mr. Malone first arrived here, the varsity football team entered into its third year and was yet a puny and inconsequential upstart in a company of hardy aggregations. Mr. Malone then displayed those attributes which have since won for him a list of successes, by taking hold of the nascent policy, and nursing it along to the robust strength it now displays, instead of discarding it for another, as is generally done with a change in athletic administration.
In addition to his manifold duties as moderator of athletic teams, Mr. Malone has taken an active interest in the managerial end of the bi-weekly and the annual, for which the editors of these two publications are indebted.
Mr. Malone is an ex-officio member of the Board of Athletic Control, in his capacity of moderator.

The 1928 Ignatian
C7 .HE staff is not a little proud to present this photographic and typo-VJy graphical chronicle of how the first year of the college’s residence in its new quarters was spent.
It is not of any technical or aesthetic excellence which the volume may possess that the staff is particularly proud, but of the distinction of being chosen to write the annals of the college in such a momentous year. When the college sloughed off its mean habiliment, "we were there.”
This group has covered the biggest story to come out of St. Ignatius since its dynamiting on Van Ness Avenue twenty-two years ago. An annual is a true indication of a coliege’s E H health. We suggest, then, that present owners
of this volume preserve it for purposes of comparison with annuals published by the college even within a decade, to determine the strides St. Ignatius had made in the intervening time. It is so that new externals have exhilarated the college within the past year, but he is a myopic individual who thinks that the college has not an incalculably higher destiny.
The staff is not averse to supplying the flyleaf of Volume I, Ignatian History, New McQuade, Associate Editor Series.

ORGANIZED in January, 1926, the Publicity Bureau, in the short space of two years, has proved itself to be the most useful and lucrative of subsidiary organizations of the College.
Its function is to keep local papers supplied with prepared information regarding activities at St. Ignatius. Because of its limited personnel, the Bureau has been forced to confine most of its efforts to exploiting the Ignatian athletic teams, which, after all, is the primary duty of a college publicity bureau. However, the Bureau did not entirely neglect to herald to the public other activities of the student body.
In handling St. Ignatius athletics, the Publicity Bureau must not only write five different versions of the same news item concerning a St. Ignatius team, for the five local papers, but its members must also visit the staff writers of the papers and orally give them material for a story when the writers decide that the game is important enough for a signed story. Otherwise, the stories are written by members of the Bureau.
Among the Publicity Bureau’s minor occupations is that of supplying record books, such as Spaldings, with Gray Fog teams’ season records, names of their coaches, captains, captains-elect and managers. At the beginning of each football season the Bureau must see to it that all companies publishing composite football schedules of Coast teams, are supplied with a copy of the Gray Fog schedule.
The Bureau must also keep in touch with the wire services, such as the Associated Press and the United Press, in order that St. Ignatius doings may be broadcasted all over the West. The account of the St. Ignatius-Loyola game, to cite one example, was carried by these agencies as far north as Seattle and as far east as Denver. In the papers of these cities fairly long stories of the game were printed. Of course, one-line items giving just the names of the contestants and the final score, were sent all over the country.
Whenever a St. Ignatius team leaves for an out-of-town game, the Publicity Bureau precedes it with complete information sheets, both to the manager of the team and to the sports editors of that city’s papers. These sheets give all data that one would desire on St. Ignatius teams.
William N. Connolly, ’28 Lawrence E. McInerney, ’29 James K. McGee, ’30
formed the personnel of the Publicity Bureau, with Connolly directing.

St. John Berchman’s Sanctuary Society
A N increase in membership and the institution of a new honor degree lare two of the more important features which the St. John Berchman’s Sanctuary Society acquired during the past scholastic year.
This society is composed of the undergraduate men who serve on the altar of St. Ignatius Church, adjoining the college. A high standard of scholarship and of character make this organization exclusive, with the result that it is perhaps the ranking society of its kind in San Francisco.

The Drama Season
HERE was no compartment in the new building used more frequently and with more profitable results than the little theater. No sooner was it ready for its first audience when its capacity was taxed by
a production of three one-act plays under the direction of Rev. Alexander J. Cody, S. J., of the department of English.
Father Cody chose to develop student actors for the next two or three years by first venturing forth with a trilogy of one-act playlets, rather than to undertake one large piece of heavy drama, thereby placing an imposition upon the director and the players. Freshmen figured prominently in Father Cody’s productions, one of the plays, "The Crows nest,” being acted exclusively by first-year men.
The popularity of Father Cody’s decision was evidenced by the full house which greeted the first three one-act presentations and the attentiveness of the spectators throughout the action. On the first program was a skit of the sea, an episode in the life of St. Francis of Assissi, and a bit of comedy from Shakespeare. This represented a well-balanced program, delectable to the appetites of the audience.
The position of a little theater in the life of a college is one too often underestimated. The drama has always found staunch supporters among college people and especially the drama as represented in the little theater movement, that is, the non-commercial stage. Those responsible for the designing of the Arts and Science unit of St. Ignatius College are to be commended upon their true wisdom in including a little theater of such complete appointment. Father Cody, too, is deserving of congratulations for his dispatch in putting the new equipment to use.
fhe most pretentious attempt at dramatics for the year was Sheridan’s "The Rivals,” staged in the latter part of April in the little theater under the direction of Mr. Thomas F. Foster, A. B. 16, who has been connected for several years with amateur productions given for the benefit of the college.
The technical work of the productions, usually given over to experienced professional hands, was performed by Richard G. Johnson '31, stage manager, and William J. Dillon ’31, electrician. All properties were either built or procured by these two freshmen and all lighting effects were arranged by them.

O’Kane Colligan Enos
NEW stars twinkled in the Ignatian firmament when the annual oratorical contest was held Friday evening, February 24, in the college little theater. So brightly did they twinkle that both faculty and alumni, who are so often wont to look to the past for palmier days, acclaimed the contest by far the best ever, prophetic of a better future.
Following the plan inaugurated in the 1927 contest, competition was restricted to members of the three upper classes.
John A. O’Kane, ’29, delivered in masterly fashion a eulogy of Fra Junipero Serra. His delivery and composition won for him the decision of the judges, which carries with it the gold medal donated by Ignatian Council No. 3 5, Y. M. I.
Francis J. Colligan, ’29, received second place for his excellent panegyric of Father Damian, the Man of Molokai.
Third place was voted to Elliott M. Enos, ’30, who treated the familiar theme of "Godless Education” with particular force.
Of the other contestants, Edward V. McQuade, ’28, drew the best response from the audience for his plan to rid public service of political parasites by choosing public officials as juries as now selected, instead of by election. Eneas Kane, ’30, exposed the forces behind Senator Heflin. William Nichols, ’30, extolled American mothers. Wilson J. O’Brien, ’30, criticized the school of Mencken. William Spohn, ’30, deprecated dollar diplomacy in American foreign business.
James G. Smyth, ’27, medalist last year, held the chair. Messrs. James G. Fitzgerald, Gerald J. O’Gara and Eustace Cullinan Jr. served as judges.

Washington State Debate
eXTRA-MURAL activities in forensics were confined this year to a debate with representatives from the State College of Washington. In spite of a heavy downpour of rain, Friday evening, March 23, witnessed an excellent audience in the little theater as Raymond L. Sullivan, ’28, and William B. Spohn, ’30, maintained the affirmative of the question: "Resolved, That American Investors and Investments in Foreign Countries Should Be Protected Only by the Government of the Nation in Which the Investment Is Made.
Mr. Sullivan, as first affirmative, denounced governmental interference in foreign countries as a violation of basic ethical principles. Mr Spohn expounded the practical loss resulting from such practices, in regard to our political and financial prestige in Europe.
Mr. Albert Fox and Mr. Carlyln Miller of Washington State based their case principally on the impracticability of non-protection and its universal use by sovereign states.
Mr. Fox, the first speaker for the negative, impressed upon his audience the material benefits to be derived from protection in foreign countries. His argument was taken up by Mr. Sullivan in the rebuttal, who insisted that an unethical method, no matter how much emolument may be attached to it, can never be rendered ethical by a consideration of its practicality.
So well put were the practical arguments for both sides of the issue, that it was principally the ethical presentations of the St. Ignatius team which won from the judges a unanimous decision.
Mr. William A. O’Brien was chairman of the evening.
The gentlemen who kindly consented to act as judges were Mr. Frank H. Kerrigan, Mr.
George J. Hatfield and Mr. Nat Schmulowitz.

McKinley Gold Medal Debate
(7 HIS outstanding event of intra-mural debat-ing activities took place this year on Monday evening, March 28, in the college little theater.
Confined to members of the Philhistorian Society, a lower division debating group, this year’s affair saw the class of ’31 with a monopoly on the six places on the rostrum.
Messrs. Vincent Lafferty, Leo Butler and Lloyd Luckman assumed the burden of proving "That It McEnerney Would Be to the Best Interests of the Democratic
Party to Nominate Governor Al Smith as Its Presidential Candidate in 1928.”
The negative side of the question was upheld by Messrs. James De Martini, Garret McEnerney and Frank Griffin, who, basing their contention on the intolerance of the "Solid South” and its attitude toward prohibition, downed the affirmative team in one of the liveliest verbal clashes in St. Ignatius debating history.
It was not the contention of the negative speakers that Governor Smith is not worthy of the Democratic nomination, but that his nomination would be detrimental to the unity and concord of the factions within the organization.
One point was brought up wherein it was shown that should Governor Smith be nominated and elected to the presidency, still his success would be an evil to the party, for the rupture caused by the nomination would not be healed by consequent Democratic prestige.
The success of the negative side was completed by the awarding of the gold medal, a gift of Hon. Benjamin L. McKinley, ’93, for the most finished speaker, to Garret W. McEnerney.
Lloyd Luckman and Frank Griffin were ranked by the judges as second and third in merit.
Mr. William B. Spohn, ’30, winner of the medal last year, was chairman.
The judges who rendered the decision were Messrs. Joseph R. Aurre-coechea, Norbert J. Korte and W. Kevin Casey.
The event was well attended.

ST. IGNATIUS College produced its first Glee Club last October, when a group of some thirty undergraduates, organized and coached by Professor Roberto Sangiorgi of the Spanish Department of the College and Arts and Science, appeared in recital on October 26, in conjunction with three one-act skits by the College Players.
The Glee Club got off to an auspicious start in October and proved its popularity by singing before a packed house early in December, when the group gave a recital of Christmas chorals.
Mr. Sangiorgi is deserving of much praise for his initiative in organizing, arranging and training the men who answered his call for glee club tryouts early in the fall semester. For the most part, the men were without the benefits of previous voice culture, but the tonal quality achieved by Professor Sangiorgi was pleasing.

C7 HE St. Ignatius Bio-Chemical Society is an organization composed v-' of medical students at the college, banded together for the following express purposes:
I. To foster intimate friendship with men eminent in the medical and allied professions.
II. To offer an opportunity for medical students to gather together in a meeting in which modern medical developments are discussed.
III. To sponsor public meetings in which prominent men of the medical profession may discuss topics of vital interest to the students.
Under the auspices of the Society, a film revealing the chemical procedures in the wholesale meat industry was exhibited in the college little theater last October. Exhibitions of such a nature, together with lectures, are the extent of the Society’s public functions.

CD EV. JOHN J. CUNNINGHAM, S. J., dean of men and director of the College Sodality, reorganized that body in the spring semester by calling for election of new officers and limiting membership to upper division students.
The purpose of the College Sodality is to promote devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary among seniors and juniors of the student body, by periodical reception of Holy Communion in a body and by other exterior marks of piety.
A sodality of a similar nature is being formed for the lower division of the college. It was thought wise to segregate the upper division students from those of the lower division in the matter of sodalities because of the difference in discipline that must be exercised upon the two bodies.

HE fifth annual Law and Com-vJ merce formal was held in the Gold Room of the Fairmont Hotel, Saturday evening, February 11. Traditionally the premier social event of the Law and Commerce year, it proved a distinct success. A representative attendance, excellent music, attractive leather programs, made the evening truly pleasant.
The committee in charge, Toland C. McGettigan, James Smyth, Ralph Spence, Conrad Hubner and Walter Daley, received the congratulations of all for the manner in which every detail of the evening was arranged.
Frosh Arts Reception For the first time in the history of St. Ignatius, Djer Kiss and Coty rivalled Camel and Chesterfield for aroma honors in the college auditorium Saturday evening, September 17. The occasion was the reception dance in honor of the class of ’31, College of Arts and Sciences.
Allaying all memories of the class brawl of the preceding week, the class of 3 1 cared for the arrangements of the evening. The sophomore committee, composed of William Spohn, Paul Vlautin and Joe Rock, provided the necessary details in satisfactory manner.
Block Club Dance With the football spirit high, the Block Club dance, held October 12 in the college auditorium, was an unqualified success. The music and other appointments of the evening, with the enthusiasm of the large attendance, made the affair memorable.
No small credit is due the committee, composed of Jack Patridge, George Olson and George Maloney, whose efforts assured the success of the evening.
Law-Commerce Frosh Reception Saturday evening, October 22, the Law-Commerce student body welcomed the freshman classes with an informal dance in the college auditorium.
Conrad Hubner, Law, 30, acted as chairman of the committee managing the dance, assisted by Joseph Bussman, Commerce, ’29, and Walter Daley, Commerce, ’28.

eELEBRATING the varsity’s triumph over Loyola, the annual football dance, given in the college little theater on Friday evening, November 25, this year surpassed all previous records for spirit and pleasure.
Novel programs, serpentine, vari-colored balloons, tantalizing music, and the informal atmosphere featured the evening.
Hugh Mullin, Arts, 28, assisted by Walter Daley, Commerce, ’28, and Conrad Hubner, Arts, ’28, served on the committee in charge of arrangements.
Members of the Loyola football squad and rooters who accompanied the team from Los Angeles were guests at the affair.
The class of 1929 gave its Junior Prom in the Colonial Ballroom of the St. Francis Hotel, Saturday evening, April 14. Without a doubt the outstanding social event on the college’s calendar, the Prom eclipsed all past records for popularity and established new heights for success.
Music for the dancing was played by the Troubadors, popular exponents of microphonic syncopation. During the intermissions varied entertainment was presented, among which were the vocal solos of Joseph J. Tissier, ’28.
Distinctive programs of green leather embossed with the Ignatian shield in gold and made into the form of card-cases, served as souvenirs of St. Ignatius’ most successful social event.
The committee in charge, to whose ability are to be credited the many novelties of the evening, was composed of William A. McCormack, chairman, Jack Patridge, Al Scott and Frank Colligan.
An innovation in the order of social affairs was the dance given by the class of 1931 at the Palace Hotel, Saturday evening, May 5. The Freshman Fandango with the Gold Room as its locale, rivalled the success of the Junior Prom of a few weeks before and easily surpassed other events of the college list for popular attention.
Bids, programs and decorations, all quite distinctive for their originality, were done in a theme of green and gold. The music of the evening had that urge which is not to be denied, but which is so seldom found.
Novelties throughout the program featured the evening because of their departure from the usual course of such dances.
Lloyd D. Luckman, chairman of the committee, was assisted by Messrs. Roger O’Meara, Garret McEncrney, Ralph Devine, Frank Silva, Russell Keil, Joseph Desmond, Frank Brophy, Nestor Paiva, Jay Hale and William Wilson, president of the class of ’31.

OQt 5Mensor Merrill Scott
Al Scott, ’29, headed the varsity yell leaders, of whom the other two were Mel Mensor and Jimmy Merrill. Organized rooting was engaged in at all football and basketball games during the past year and also at rallies preparatory to those games.
Bleacher stunts were attempted for the first time at the Loyola game on Thanksgiving Day, with satisfactory results. Scott was assisted in plotting the stunts by Frank Colligan, 29, and Lawrence Mclnerney, ’29.
The freshman manager system was introduced this year, by which the manager of a sport is given assistance in the details of his work by several freshmen, who thus place themselves as eligibles for managerships when they attain the upper division.

Bovle Loyalty Award
HE Boyle Loyalty Award is made each year to "the football player who, by his conduct on the field, has been the source of most inspiration to his team mates.”
The Boyle Award was instituted in the fall of 1926 by William S. Boyle, '07, residing in Reno, Nevada, who was so impressed by the sportsmanship exhibited by the St. Ignatius football varsity in losing to the University of Nevada team that year, that he resolved to reward the player who inspired his team mates, with a permanent token. The Boyle
Loyalty Award, or Boyle Inspirational Medal, was the outcome.
In 1926, the first year of the award, the medal was voted to Daniel C. Murphy, Jr., then captain of the varsity.
At the conclusion of the season just passed, the medal was voted to Richard A. Vaccaro, who closed his fourth year of varsity competition with the 1927 Loyola game.
In both instances, the vote was unanimous.
It should be remarked that both Murphy and Vaccaro, winners of the medal, are the only football players to serve four years on the varsity since the resumption of American football at St. Ignatius.

t7 HE college’s entrance into the Far Western Conference precipitated the adoption of a new athletic policy which had been contemplated for the past two years. Heretofore, the athletic teams, especially the football team, were composed of more night college men than day college men, with the result that practice had to be engaged in at an hour convenient to the night college man who worked during the day.
Practice was held for a small hour, between the time when the night college men quit work and the hour for the first night classes, 7:30 o’clock. Such a condition was trying both to the coach and to the players.
At the close of the 1926 season the move to use day college men exclusively was seriously discussed and during the intervening months before the opening of the 1927 season the decision was made to adopt the policy now in force. Improvement in the efficiency of the teams was immediate.
The longer hours of practice in the afternoons allowed Coach Jimmy Needles to dispense more than the bare fundamentals of the game and served to keep down the number of injuries consequent upon poor condition. The offense of the team this year was varied and effective, so much so that the Green and Gold outplayed more than one team to which it lost. The lack of reserves to replace the weary first string men was all that kept St. Ignatius from enjoying an .800 season.
Coach Needles had the services of Harry Quass of the University of Washington and Gonzaga College as his line coach and of Gus Peterson as trainer.
Both of these men played a considerable part in the sharp rise that the varsity took in football circles last season. The work of Quass, for instance, was evident in the Santa Clara, St. Mary’s and Army games when the St. Ignatius line surprised even
r xo IGNATIAN
its well-wishers by its stubbornness against heavier opponents.
Serious injuries were not as frequent last season as in the season previous, although the 1927 schedule was heavier, a fact that speaks well for Trainer Peterson.
On the whole, the team was an extremely young athletic organization. Of the twenty-nine men who retained positions on the squad all season, one is a senior,
Dan Murphy, eleven are sophomores, and seventeen are freshmen. 1 his fact was repeatedly impressed upon the public by the sports experts, who marvelled at the product Coach Needles turned out from the inexperienced timber at hand.
With the removal of the college to the new building on Cole and Fulton Streets the colors of the institution were changed to green and gold. These hues were worn for the first time by a St. Ignatius team at Reno on September 24, when the varsity defeated the University of Nevada, and for the first time in San Francisco on October 2, when the varsity bowed to the Olympic Club. Formerly, the colors were red and blue.
The annual dinner given by the Associated Students to the football
squad was held this year at the Whitcomb Hotel on December 3. Edward V. Mc-Quadc, manager of the football team, was toastmaster. Those at the speakers’ table were Mr. L. M. Malone, S. }., moderator of athletics, Coach Needles, Darrell W. Daly and John L. Whelan of the Board of Athletic Control and Dan Murphy, the only outgoing senior. Richard A. Vac-caro was voted the Boyle Inspirational medal as the player "who, by his conduct on the field, has been the source of most inspiration to his team mates.” Murphy received the medal last year. At the banquet it was decided to forego the election of a permanent captain until one of the players has attained his senior year. For the 1928 season Coach Needles will appoint a captain for each game.
Morgan scoring on Barron’s pass
Varsity 32 Loyola 7 The raging, roaring Lions of Loyola were more than tamed by the Fog-men, who, in the "Game of Two Cities,” turned hunter and utterly routed their ferocious foes. A crowd of slightly less than 10,000 saw the Loyolans lose a one-sided game by the score of 32-7. However, the variety of play and the brilliant runs of both sides more than atoned for the difference in points amassed.
Before the game had advanced very far it was apparent that the Fog had the better team. Early in the first quarter Bareilles, aided by Barron
and Phipps, carried the ball clear down the field to Loyola’s twenty-yard line. Here Jimmy Barron passed to Swede Olson, who caught the oval without difficulty and stepped over the line for the Fog’s first six points. Rene Bareilles failed to kick goal.
From here it was nothing more than a repetition of the foregoing. The Loyola backs could not function and were constantly fumbling both the ball and their signals. Tunncy, on one occasion, got away on a nice gain, but that was the only bright spot in the Lions’ attack. The story of the game can best be summed up in these statistics: Loyola made four first
downs to twenty-one by St. Ignatius. This just about indicates the relative merits of the two teams that day.
Phipps, Half hack
Barron skirting right end
Near the end of the first quarter Olson recovered Lowery’s fumble on the Loyola thirty-eight yard line. At the start of the second epoch, after a few preliminary plays, Barron passed a perfect one to Morgan, who caught the ball over the line for St. Ignatius’ twelfth marker. This time Bareilles kicked goal.
Still in the second quarter. Bus Phipps carried close to the Loyola line in two runs, netting fifteen and twelve yards each, thanks to the interfering of Santee and Vaccaro. Bus was now tired and anyhow Benny Santee was once more up on his feet ready to go, so Frank Horgan gave the ball to Benny, who crashed through for the third touchdown. Bareilles failed to convert.
Late in this quarter Loyola showed its only flash when a thirty-yard pass from the hand of Al Hocffer was caught by Jim Tunney on the fifty-yard line and carried by the latter over the goal line.
Bus Phipps pursued Tunney, but was unable to catch the flying Numa. The play was well executed and Loyola deserved the touchdown. A St. Ignatius offside gave the Lions the extra point.
The third period was scoreless. To start the fourth canto the Lions produced a
Santei , fullback«£ 0
I G N A T I A N
perpendicular punt which was caught on their twenty-eight yard line. In five plays starring Phipps and Santee the ball was carried to the one-yard line, from which point Benny bucked it over in one play.
He was seconded in his efforts by Horgan and Bareilles. Bareilles failed to kick goal.
Immediately after this Phipps provided a thrill by breaking loose off tackle and journeying seventy-five yards before being brought to earth by Currin.
Joe Sheerin, freshly sent in at fullback, plunged through to make the final and fifth touchdown after the entire back-ficld had united to bring the ball within striking distance of the Loyola chalk. Red Vaccaro converted, contrary to general opinion.
Noticeable in the line were the efforts of Murphy, Bray, McEnerney, Vaccaro and Olson. Winter and Parina played per usual, which is a high compliment. Bareilles, Santee, Phipps, Horgan and the right arm of Barron were prominent in the play-by-play account.
Varsity 19 Nevada 0 In its initial game of the season and, incidentally, its first Par Western
Conference contest, the Gray Fog upset all predictions and trounced the Nevada Wolfpack by the goodly margin of nineteen points to none.
There was no scoring in the first period and whatever edge there was in playing strength seemed to be in favor of the Fog. The first touchdown came about in the second quarter when Johnny Knopp intercepted a Nevada pass in midfield. On the first down Knopp passed to Jack Casey, who carried to Nevada’s ten-yard line. Bareilles then made two through center and on the next play passed to Bac-ciocco, who fought his way through a broken field to a touchdown. Benny Santee missed the try for point and the half ended with the Fog on the better end of a 6-0 score.
It was again Knopp who started the Green Shirts on the touchdown route when he stopped a pass deep in his own territory and ran it back to the forty-yard line. Santee, after failing on several line plays, on the last down raced around end for a forty-yard gain and a touchdown. Benny converted to make St. Ignatius’ total thirteen.
Jimmy Barron came into the limelight at this stage of the game, paired with Santee. This duo belabored the Wolf wall until the play was very much in Nevada’s corner of the lot, with the result that when Santee slipped through for a short gain he stumbled across the line for the final score. He failed to convert.
Captain Tom Carothers merited the esteem of Reno journals for his breaking through the Wolfpack line to halt incipient runs. His work on the offensive was also responsible for the success St. Ignatius backs enjoyed in hitting the line. Several of Jimmy Barron’s punts were whoppers. Johnny Knopp was connected in some way with all three of the scoring plays.
Varsity 0 Olympic Club 34
The All-American Olympic Club team was more than the Gray Fog youngsters could cope with, and although losing by the score of 34-0, still the varsity went down to a not inglorious defeat. The experience of their older adversaries and the unstoppable running of Kutsch and Kaer proved to be the big factor in the undoing of the Green Shirt athletes. These two Olympic backs cornered all the spectacular stuff and shoved over the majority of the club’s scores. It was their frequent wanderings that kept the Fog’s defense taut and nervous all afternoon and more or less helped to run up the Olympic yardage total.
Captain Yoder at end was tough for the Gray Fog wingmen and backs.
The team battled stiffly throughout the

entire contest, but only in one period, the first, did it show any of the class which had marked the Nevada victory. Horgan at quarter directed the plays with precision and succeeded in piercing the Olympic’s defense on several occasions. Bus Phipps did some appreciable ball-carrying on more than one occasion. Merch Winter played sixty minutes of gruelling football and made any number of hard stops. Jack O’Maric, who relieved Tom Carothers when the latter was injured, bore up well.
Writeups in local papers the next day ranked Captain Carothers and Benny Santee as "on a par with the club stars.”
Varsity 6 Santa Ci.ara 12 After outplaying and outsmarting the Santa Clara varsity for three quarters, the Gray Fog eleven weakened and yielded the first football game involving St. Ignatius and Santa Clara in many seasons, to the Broncs by a 12-6 score.
With the exception of the fourth period it was an evenly fought contest, with neither side having any material advantage. The Green Wave of Santa Clara was hard put to score the victory that it did, for St. Ignatius made more yards from scrimmage, more downs, and also outpunted their rivals.
o I G N A T I A N o
Fog penetrates the Bronco line
During the entire first half the Broncos broke loose from their corral only once and managed to get into the Ignatian side of the pasture. The remainder of the time they were having trouble in the far corner of their own territory. St. Ignatius manifested a superiority complex in the offensive department, for time and time again the team worked the ball down into proximity of the goal posts, only to lose it on some break of the game.
To start the third period, St. Ignatius received kickoff, ran one play and attempted to kick from scrimmage on the twenty-four yard mark. Gran-ucci and Chisholm for the Broncs broke through and Chisholm blocked Barron’s kick and sent the ball rolling backwards.
Granucci scooped up the oval but missed, and Chisholm took a flyer and missed also, the ball all the while bounding into the end zone. In the scramble that followed,
McGovern, Santa Clara guard, gained possession of the ball for a touchdown.
Hassler failed in his drop kick.
St. Ignatius again received the kickoff and after an exchange of punts and an intercepted pass by Horgan, the Gray Fog forced the Broncs deep into their territory. The Ignatians took the ball on downs on the Santa Clara forty-eight yard line. Santee bucked the ball ten
IGNATIAN cxs i
cxs r a
yards, aided by a five-yard penalty, to the thirty-four yard mark. Here St. Ignatius insisted on passing, although the officials seemed to oppose it. Barron passed to Knopp over center for ten yards, but the play was called back. Barron then passed to Knopp over center for fifteen yards. The play was called back again for a double offside.
Determined that the pass should be made, Barron again passed to Knopp, a little to the left of center this time, and Johnny made the play stick. With a beautiful running catch he gathered in the ball, and, handily assisted by interference, made the goal line in clean style. Santee failed to convert.
This happened late in the game and from all appearances the game was destined to end deadlocked. But the Broncs were desperate and this condition, aided by the Gray Fog ennui, enabled the peninsula gridders to batter down the tiring St. Ignatius’ defense, which could not be replaced for lack of reserves. The end came when the Broncs took the ball on their twenty-yard line and bucked and passed it to the Fog’s ten-yard line. Fawley took it from here and plowed
through to the odd touchdown. During the Bronco march there were several occasions on which it seemed certain to falter, but frantic passes, caught off the shoe tops of some Bronco, saved possession of the ball for them.
Frank Hanlon, Tom Carothers, Jimmy Barron, Johnny Knopp and Benny Santee were the proud men after the game. Barron, although he did not figure in the scoring, broke away every so often for good gains. His best thrust was a twenty-yard accumulation off tackle. Barron’s three successful throws to Knopp and Knopp’s receiving of them was the feature of the contest.

Varsity 0 St. Mary’s 23
As usual, the fourth period proved to be the jinx hour for the Gray Fog. After holding the Saints to a 2-0 score for three quarters, the Fogmcn allowed the Saints to stage a comeback in the closing minutes of play and to score twenty-one points in rapid succession. Some condolence may be gained from the fact that the Ignatians made the renowned Seven Stalwarts of St. Mary’s look rather ordinary, and, in spots actually outplayed them.
The first St. Mary’s score, a two-pointer, came in the first few minutes of play. Rooney placed a perfect kick in the St. Ignatius corner of the field, the ball coming to rest on the two-yard line. Barron attempted to pass from behind his own goal line, but he was rushed by Illia, who forced the Ignatian back into a safety. That ended the scoring until within five minutes of closing time.
From then on the ball see-sawed back and forth with neither side being able to summon enough concentrated strength to stage an effective attack. Barron completed a number of passes to Olson and Hanlon and Phipps and Santee got away for fair gains, mostly through the
Saints’ vaunted line. Parina, Tacklc
c xd I G N A T I A N
The Ignatian line proved invulnerable to the thrusts of Scarlett, Haley, Pitch-ford and Rooney and at times the Fog linesmen broke through the stout Gael defense to smear the backs yards behind the line of scrimmage.
The third quarter was a repetition of the preceding two. St. Mary’s had not as yet used the shift and wide end runs by Merrick and Rooney gained little or no yardage. Bareilles and Phipps had equal difficulty in this canto.
Beginning the fourth quarter Merrick and Rooney alternated in carrying the ball from the St. Ignatius’ forty-five yard line to the eight-yard line, where an incomplete pass over the goal line gave St. Ignatius possession of the ball on her twenty-yard mark. Shccrin then attempted a pass which was intercepted by Pitchford, St. Mary’s taking the ball on St. Ignatius’ twenty-seven yard line. Merrick and Rooney again advanced the oval, this time to the Fog’s twelve-yard line, with first down coming up. On a series of criss-crosses, Merrick plunged over for the first and only score that St. Mary’s made that day in her own right, that is, while she was on the offensive. Mulcahy converted.
The second touchdown came a short time later, when Barron, again attempting a pass from his twenty-yard line, tossed the pigskin into the waiting arms of Rooney, who galloped across the line. Mulcahy kicked goal.
With but three minutes to go the final score cropped up when Higgins blocked Barron’s attempted punt from his ten-yard line. Captain Larry Bettencourt, St.
Mary’s All-American center, recovered the maverick ball for a touchdown. Pitch-ford converted.
Jack O’Maric, playing regular center position for the first time, was the star performer of either team. He outcharged and, what is more, outguessed, Bettencourt on plenteous occasions and messed up the Gael offense with frequency. Santee, Olson, Phipps and Barron worked well also.

Linesmen rush Army punter
Varsity 7 West Coast Army 12
The powerful and heavy West Coast Army team extracted a 12-7 victory from the Gray Fog eleven while a blanket of clinging fog hovered over Kezar Stadium. Although the service gridders showed signs of superior strength throughout the contest, they were considerably outplayed at various times during the contest when the superb Ignatian defense had practically rendered their attack harmless.
In the first period the play was confined to the Jarheads’ territory and a kicking game was resorted to by both sides. During this quarter and even in the second, the Ignatians showed none of the dogged determination that characterized their stand against St. Mary’s. Army scored both of its touchdowns in these periods, while the Gray Fog was in the doldrums.
Early in the second quarter the government gridders took the ball after an exchange of punts, on the Ignatians' twenty-nine yard line, and Blough, on the first play, got free on an off-tackle slice and ran twenty-nine yards to a touchdown. Barnes missed the try for point.
The Army scored again in the second quarter, this time a few minutes before
Ski i ly, End
I G N A T I A N
the gun ended the first half. Blough, carrying the ball, skirted right end for forty yards and arrived at the goal in the company of several fellow Army men.
Barnes again missed the uprights with the kick.
When the teams left the field at half time the general opinion among the non-Ignatian spectators was that those twelve Army points were just the beginning of what the Jarheads would amass before the final gun. But the Fogmen were given a harangue by Coach Jimmy Needles in the clubhouse and when they trotted on the field for preliminary warm-up, they displayed a new attitude towards this particular branch of the military service.
A few minutes after the start of the third quarter, Cedarholme’s punt was blocked on the Army six-yard line by at least five Gray Fog linesmen. Following three tries, in which he averaged two yards a crack, Benny Santee crashed through guard for a score. He finished off the business by converting for the extra point.
In the final period St. Ignatius once more fell victim to exhaustion and the Army threatened several times. One stand of the Green Shirts in
particular, that on the one-yard line with the Army having three downs to go, was a remarkable bit of football stubbornness.
While the early-leavers were filing through the exits the Fog pulled a play that fell inches short of winning the game. Standing in the shadows of his own goal posts, Barron flipped a thirty-five yard pass to Hanlon, who snared it on the run and charged down the grid with a clear field ahead. Blough and Gilmore chased Hanlon for forty yards and Blough nailed him with a flying tackle from behind. Hanlon carried victory with him, but he was too exhausted to lengthen his stride.
Skelly, Bacciocco, Murphy and Staple-ton worked well in the line and Sullivan, Barron and Barcillcs in the backfield.

Varsity 6 Fresno State 6 Battling as only two evenly matched teams can, the Fresno State College grid-ders and the St. Ignatius football product fought through four frames of heat and fast football to a 6-6 tie. Not that alibis are in order, but the extremely hot weather and the penalties combined with the bad breaks certainly played havoc with whatever chances the Ignatians had.
The strength of Fresno State was vastly underestimated, as the scores of other teams that battled Fresno will testify. Then again, the four gruelling games played at Kczar Stadium on successive Sundays were not conducive to good condition. On the other hand, the Gray Fog gridmen were a little frayed at the cuffs as they entrained for Fresno, thanks to the strenuous workouts afforded them by the Olympic Club, St. Mary’s, Santa Clara and West Coast Army.
St. Ignatius’ equal share of the twelve points held in common was won late in the game when Johnny Knopp recovered a fumble on his thirty-five yard line. Knopp was limping around with an injured leg at the time, but the joy of getting possession of the oval made him oblivious to the pain and he volunteered his services to advance the yardsticks to the Fresno ten-yard line in three runs. A toss, Barron to Hanlon, moved the ball up to the one-yard line, whence Benny Santee crashed over on the next play. His attempt at conversion, on which hinged the outcome of the game, fell short by inches.
Bareilles, Barron and Knopp were all booting them high and far and, Bus Phipps, who undertook to do a great deal of the ball carrying chores, gave the townsmen of Lemoore, who came over en masse to watch him, plenty to write home about.
Dick Parina and Mcrch Winter added to their endurance record by playing another full game without relief, both for themselves and for their opponents.
o I G N A T I
George Olson, laid out for a while at one stage of the game, came back to snare one particular pass in as sensational a manner as the Fresnonians have seen in quite a spell.
Joe Sheerin and Frank Morgan performed better than creditably, all things considered. Phipps, as related above, was the halfback luminary of the day. Besides Merch Winter and Dick Parina, Hanlon, Olson and O’Marie were prominent in line play.
The night of the game the team was lionized by civic organizations of Fresno. Members of the teams and the St. Ignatius entourage were guests at a banquet tendered Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, athletes in another field.
Varsity 7 California Aggils 2 A fast open running attack, which netted the only touchdown of the game, enabled the varsity to defeat the California Aggies, 7-2, in a Far Western Conference contest. The game was fairly close, with St. Ignatius having the edge in the first half and both teams being equal in the closing division.
Soon after the opening whistle had started play the Green Shirt warriors literally swept their opponents off their feet with a brilliant passing

skirmish. Jimmy Barron heaved two long ellipses to Bus Phipps, who raced down the field on both occasions for long gains. One of these Barron-Phipps passes brought the ball to the Aggies’ ten-yard line, from which point Benny Santee bucked it over in three tries. Santee also toed the ball over the bar to gain the extra point.
The Aggies scored their pair of markers in the second quarter. Phipps, after catching a punt, was attempting to bring the ball back but was hemmed in and caught behind his goal. Once the Aggies came within scoring distance, but the superb Ignatian defense forced them to relinquish the ball on downs.
The outstanding men of the Gray Fog team were Winter and Parina, whose ferocious tackling and all-around efficiency helped tide the Fog over to a victory. Knopp’s kicking was consistent and his long punts greatly aided the team’s defensive play.
Varsity 6 College of the Pacific 20 Armistice Day was a semi-legal holiday, but for the St. Ignatius varsity it was a complete leave of absence from the fundamental functions of a football player. The Gray Fog eleven refused to work its plays that day and the Pacific Tiger was allowed to saunter off with a 20-6 win in a Far 3r £x
Western Conference engagement played at Stockton.
Pacific, rated the underdogs, went after the Ignatians right from the whistle and by the end of the first half had accumulated thirteen points to the Fog’s none. A non-deceptive pass play, Disbrow to Pickering, accounted for both scores.
In the third quarter, when the outcome of the game was still in doubt because of St. Ignatius’ show of new life, the Tigers counted again when Captain Jones recovered a fumble out of the usually steady hands of Frank Horgan.
After hearing Jimmy Needles’ words of commendation and esteem, the team came back in the third quarter and played with a snap that was evident in its San Francisco appearances. Here is the official record of how St. Ignatius’ six points were accounted for:
"Pacific kicked off to start the second half, Barron receiving. Barron returned to the thirty-three yard line. On the next play Santee carried the ball out. Barron passed to Bareilles over the center of the line for a twenty-seven yard gain. Santee made five through guard. Barron quick-
kicked to Pacific’s twenty-two yard line. Pacific returned a kick to St. Ignatius’ thirty-six yard line. Barron passed to Bareilles for twenty-one yards. Barron made eight yards off tackle. Santee made first down over center. Bareilles made twenty yards off tackle with a cutback. The ball is now on Pacific’s fifteen-yard line. On the next play Barron went around Pacific’s right end for thirteen yards, bringing the ball to Pacific’s two-yard line. Bareilles scored on a reverse off left tackle. Bareilles failed to convert.”
The consensus of opinion is that St. Ignatius showed only her accustomed form in that drive.
Jimmy Barron and Rene Bareilles were the offensive stars for the Fog. Barron is

usually content to confine his activities in one game cither to passing or running, but in this contest he performed both functions and with much success. Barron’s passing and running and Barcilles’ running were the best seen on the Stockton gridiron, despite the defeat of their team. Johnny Knopp got rid of several long punts just to verify the predictions of Stockton sport pages.
In the line, Jack O’Marie played a ferocious game, especially on the defensive.

IT IS the sincere belief of well-posted followers of sports within the walls of the college and of impartial observers outside its pale that St. Ignatius was never represented by a more able athletic organization than the varsity basketball team which climaxed its 1927-1928 season by winning the Far Western Conference title, a distinction that represents the utmost in basketball achievement for this section of the country.
The Ignatian quintet went through a pretentious schedule of twenty-one engagements, in which were included the cream of Western club and college teams along with organizations of lesser caliber. Sixteen of these games were victories for the Gray Fog. Of the five defeats, only one, or possibly two, were of a nature that would lead a sane-minded follower of the team’s fortunes to list them as legitimate defeats on the final record.
St. Ignatius played no mean part in the precipitous rise in popularity which basketball took during the past season. California has never known the turnouts which the indoor sport elicited last winter. Previous to St. Ignatius’ win over the University of California at Berkeley, there were no inklings that the 1928 season was to be any more successful from a box office consideration than foregoing years. But the Gray Fog victory over the inveterate winners of the Pacific Coast Conference title revealed to cage followers that the superlative in basketball was to be seen on this side of the bay. Accordingly, the next appearance of the varsity, that against St. Mary’s in Kezar Pavilion, was witnessed by what was then a record-breaking crowd. Ever after that game the pavilion was comfortably filled for major games. It is exercising no undue presumption to state that St. Ignatius set a precedent for the tremendous turnouts and distributed the infection which inoculated the heretofore apathetic cage spectator.
We have it on the testimony of local scribes that the Gray Fog varsity contributed more spectacular and breath-taking games this season than any other quintet. After the game in which the team showed its first signs of latent greatness, the Y. M. I. game, St. Ignatius never played before a local audience that was even moderate in size.
While the quintet was composed of individuals of All-State caliber, it was the dazzling teamwork instilled by Coach Jimmy Needles that caught the fancy of the fans. The varsity, being comparatively light in weight and short in stature, relied upon an extremely fast game to score its wins and for this attribute won the support of students of the game. The record of the team and its beauty of action on the floor while making that record installed Jimmy Needles as the ranking basketball mentor for this province.

Not a little of the team’s prominence was due to the confidence and stability which flowed to the players from the captaincy, held by Jack Patridge, a name synonymous with basketball here at St. Ignatius. "Pat” possesses that fleeting quality which enabled him to exercise control over his team mates and at the same time to enjoy their respect for him as a leader and esteem of him as a player. He will be the only player lost to the squad next year, but his going will equal the loss of several stars of a less amiable nature.
Patridge will be succeeded next year as captain by Ray Maloney, as sensational and finished a forward as there is in the state and a holder of that status since his high school days. Maloney has contributed some lofty moments to St. Ignatius basketball history in the past two years and it is greatly to be expected that his performance of the duties of captain in 1929 will be on a plane with his previous accomplishments.

Jimmy Needles trotted out his reserve strength in this game and the boys carried on as smoothly as the regulars.

Varsity 30 California 19
It remained for the varsity to decisively defeat the University of California quintet, four times winner of the Pacific Coast Conference title, before the Gray Fog was officially recognized as the dictator in hardwood floor circles. The team surprised even its most ardent boosters. The Bears were completly outplayed from start to finish, both in floor play and in accuracy in shooting. The margin St. Ignatius held over California in floor play was the greatest any team enjoyed over the Bears last season. At one time the varsity led 16-6. Rene Bareilles played his greatest individual game of the year, scoring sixteen points and bewildering the Bears by his dribbling, pivoting and passing.
Ray Maloney and Tom Feerick were the other offensive stars, these two
121Vlautin Knopp G. Maloney
working the hole together with damaging effect. Feerick outplayed by far his rival, an All-Coast selection of last year. California got plenty of shots at the basket, but they were of the variety that didn’t deserve to go in, desperate, one-hand affairs. This condition was caused by the close guarding of Patridge, Cameron, Hale and Olson. Cameron’s work in taking Bear shots off the backboard and setting the ball into motion to Bareiiles or Maloney caused a great deal of comment. The score at half time was 22-13 in St. Ignatius’ favor.

Varsity 31 St. Mary’s 32
From the heights of the California victory the varsity dropped to the pit of the St. Mary’s defeat. Before the largest crowd Kezar witnessed to that date, the Saints nosed out the Gray Fog 32-31. St. Mary’s ability to sink baskets from difficult angles and great distances was uncanny. The varsity outplayed the Saints on the floor, but could not find the hoop, especially in the opening minutes when the Fogmen might have run up a lead that would have enabled them to loaf the rest of the game. The game was termed the most thrilling seen in San Francisco within the memory of the younger generation of fans. Nor was it surpassed in this claim by games later in the season.
Eleven times during the game the lead changed hands and four times within the last three minutes. Early in the game Rene Barcilles was ejected for personal fouls, throwing the burden of the scoring upon Ray Maloney, who did nobly with sixteen points. Captain Patridge, Cameron, Olson and Hale did all they could to prevent what finally did happen. The Saints’ lead was given by "Butch” Simas, who sank a basket from midcourt in a frantic attempt, while the gun was in the timekeeper’s hand.

Fresno State Series
The varsity established itself in the Far Western Conference standing by taking two games from the Fresno State quintet on successive nights.
Fresno State presented better opposition than most fans imagined. In the first game the valley boys were bewildered by the size of Kezar Pavilion and could not accustom themselves to the distances. The second game saw them at their proper level.
Rene Bareilles and Ray Maloney led the scoring in the first game, followed by Tom Feerick and Captain Jack Patridge. George Maloney, sent into the game in the second half, made a perfect shooting record for himself, getting two out of two. Johnny Knopp loomed up well also.
The second game extended the Gray Fog hoopsters a great deal more.

The varsity was beyond recognition in this game. None of the fastbreaking tactics which characterized its work in previous games was in evidence. Its shooting of fouls was atrocious and its attempts to score field goals only a whit better. Ray Maloney was in the doldrums all evening, his shots spinning around the hoop before dropping outside.

The victory over Santa Clara, winner of games with both Stanford and California, re-established the Gray Fog in its position which it held following the California game. The two teams staged the season’s fastest moving game. The absence of many fouls was conspicuous. Ray Maloney found the basket for seven sensational field goals in as brilliant a manner as we ever shall pine to see. Three of them were made while the little captain-elect was running at top speed directly under the hoop, after receiving bullet passes from Bareilles or Patridge.
This game saw the new Needles combination for the first time; Rene Bareilles shifted to running guard, Captain Patridge to forward, Jay Hale to center, with Wally Cameron jumping to start the play. Bareilles’ floor work and feeding of Maloney was a thing of beauty. Wally Cameron started the team’s string by sinking two long ones from midcourt.

Another capacity crowd saw the second St. Mary’s-St. Ignatius game, which was taken by the Fog 25-18. The contest was a slow one, due, no doubt, to the safety-first attitude of the Fogmen and the suspicion among the Gaels that they couldn’t repeat. At half time the score favored the eventual winners 16-9. At no time did the Saints threaten. The superiority of the Gray Fog in floor play was obvious, but its shooting was not up to par. Ray Maloney was guarded like the last dime and could get free to score only three units. Jay Hale, Tex Cameron, Rene Bareilles and Captain John J. Patridge did elude the Gael goalers for twenty points among them. Rene Bareilles continued his smart passing and dribbling. "Butch” Simas, the man who downed the Gray Fog with a fifty-foot ellipse in the first game, was shut out with nary a point. Cameron, Olson and Bareilles were responsible for this meritorious act.

Varsity 31 Olympic Club 29
You may thank Jay Hale for the Gray Fog’s win over the Olympic Club, destined to emerge the best team in the Pacific Association finals some weeks after the St. Ignatius game. The southpaw center eager took a pass from Bareilles when the score was knotted at 29 all, and with twenty seconds to go, looped the ball through the iron circle without touching the metal. The shot was just this side of midcourt.
For weeks in advance this St. Ignatius-Olympic game was played up in the local sheets as the cage classic of these parts, and it was. Despite the close score, the Ignatian superiority in general play was pronounced. Patridge’s ability to cash in on free throws and Hale’s ability to cast in field goals meant the difference between victory and defeat for the Fog.
In the first half, the Ignatians had things much their own way and led 15-13 when the gun sounded the end of the first division. In the second half, however, the Olympians, or rather Nip McHose, ran up a string of three field goals before the Fog defense tightened, putting the club into the lead. Wally Cameron, Captain Patridge and Rene Bareilles doubled their efforts and once more St. Ignatius moved forward while the clubmen marked time. “Pat” dropped through four free throws, a mighty valuable operation now that the game is over.
In retrospect, it is easy to visualize why Jay Hale and Rene Bareilles were picked as the two best men in their positions in state basketball. They were playing in true character this night.

George Maloney, sent into the game at the closing minute, tried valiantly to do the well-nigh impossible, defeat Santa Clara on its own court, but George’s endeavor fell just one point short of fruition and the Santa Clara Bronco triumphed over the St. Ignatius Gray Fog, 24-23. The first shot out of the hands of George went for two points. Before he could wheel into position for another crack at the net the gun barked the end of the contest.
St. Ignatius started off with a rush, scoring four points before the Broncs recorded any. Throughout the first half the Fog led and at half time the figures favored it 13-12. Before the end of the second half, Santa Clara obtained the lead for the first time, but soon lost it again. From this point on the lead changed hands with every basket.
Jay Hale was the only Fogman to score with frequency and regularity. Jay accounted for eight of the varsity’s points, a goodly sum when the size of the total score and the tightness of the guarding are remembered. Following up his shots with grim determination to recover the ball if it should fail to go in, Jay scored most of his points by flipping the casaba into the net with his good left hand with Broncos to the right of him, also to the left. Bareilles and Wally Cameron contributed their share to the evening’s close guarding.

Varsity 24 Nevada 22
The greatly desired Far Western Conference championship was eked out by the margin of two points, represented by Ray Maloney’s last minute bucket from afar, at the expense of the University of Nevada’s quintet on the Reno court.
At the end of the first half the varsity led by the comfortable margin of 17-11. During that time Jay Hale had registered five field goals and before the night was over, was destined to get one more for a grand total of twelve units and high point laurels. Jay’s falling off from his first half scoring string was indicative of the entire team’s slump in the second half. The team mustered up only seven markers in the latter part of the evening. Otherwise, the title would have been annexed by a more representative score.
Ray Maloney, along with Hale, displayed the nicest floor work of the tilt. Wally Cameron’s retrieving the ball off the backboard was again the topic of the shower room.

The Baseball Season
HE St. Ignatius ballyard took on a big league glow this spring, with Tony Lazzeri, San Francisco’s gift to the New York Yankees, acting as mentor of the Gray Fog nine. Bad weather cut short Tony’s stay and after about two weeks of intermittent workouts, he was forced to pack up and hie himself to the training camp of the world’s champions.
At his departure, the club was taken over by Mr. L. M. Malone, S. J., moderator of athletics, who remained as pilot throughout the season. Although the percentage ranking of the team was not high, great encouragement has been derived from the fact that most of the players are freshmen and sophomores, with several seasons of competition in the offing. The experience they absorbed this year, therefore, will not be wasted. The squad will return intact next year, including Captain Ray O’Connor and Manager George Duffy.
Among other happy omens, the season saw a resumption of baseball relations with St. Mary’s and Santa Clara.
Varsity 4 Seymour Drug 12
Playing spotty, lustreless ball, the Fog dropped its first practice tilt of the season to the Seymour Drug nine by the topheavy score of 12-4. Captain Ray O’Connor led the barrage with three hits, and George Maloney seconded him with a triple and a single.
The numerous bobbles and the lack of hitting eye displayed by the Fogmen may be attributed to the fact that the basketball men on the team, and they composed about half of the ball club, arrived in town only a few hours before game time, having spent the week-end at Reno. Joe Rock and Jack Patridgc, for instance, who pitched, were two of the travellers.
Marty Reichlin, of whom much is expected, finished the game and got his first college baseball experience.

Joe Rock had too much stuff for the bankers, flopping thirteen of them on strikes and holding them to four scattered hits. The Maloney brothers and Charley Maestri collected three blows apiece, George getting a triple and a double, not to mention a single. Frank Horgan’s fielding at second base was a piece of superlative baseball.

Captain Ray O’Connor starred on the defensive as well as on the offensive. Marty Rcichlin, the big righthander, relieved Patridge in the late innings and gave the Colgate batters the same kind of puzzlers as his predecessor had been dispensing.

Lefty Patridge had a couple of bad innings right at the start, and with four bobbles his mates made behind him, this was enough to sink the portsider. The St. Mary’s batsmen were out for an average boosting spree and would not be denied.
Bill Clecack in right field got plenty of chances to prove his ability as a ball hawk and came through the ordeal with the reputation of a Class A outfielder.

George Maloney was shifted from third base to short and Johnny Knopp was sent in at third. Weak hitting was also evident.

Track is the youngest of the so-called major sports at St. Ignatius, and, like every other youngster, it is still in the formative period and without any great accomplishments.
However, there are some few men on the squad who should score points in any respectable meet and with these as a nucleus, the Ignatian harriers should present next season an aggregation of formidable track and field men.
It is felt that, although the team is but pioneering, it is off to a better start than were the other St. Ignatius teams in their infancy and that track and field prospects at St. Ignatius are brighter than at other colleges of the smaller circle.
Jack Walsh seems to be the most hasty of the sprinters, along with Bill Wilson, former San Francisco high school star, and Andy Sullivan, who was equally prominent in Oakland prep circles. Bob McGibben is also an Ignatian entrant in the short races. Both Wilson and Sullivan extend their endeavors to the low hurdles.
Henry Aldana, one of the most ardent track enthusiasts at the college and the leader in the movement to establish a Gray Fog team on the cinder path, specializes in the 440-yard run and is also a member of the mile
I G N A T I A N
relay team. Jack Casey, Johnny Coleman and Jim Eames are also likely looking one-lap men.
The Fog should be particularly strong in the half-mile, with Jay Hale, Jimmy Barron and Jim Fames entered in that event. Hale was just about the best that local high schools produced last year in the half-mile and the mile and it is almost certain that he will be equally successful in college competition. He has announced himself as out for the half-mile only, but he should be as successful in the mile if he decides to negotiate that distance. Barron, too, was a better than average high school performer. Jim Eames is one of the earnest workers on the squad and has put a great deal of half miles behind him in the past few weeks.
For the mile the Gray Fog must rely on Frank Morton, Jimmy Barron, Joe Hazelwood, Jack Werner and possibly Jay Hale. Morton is one entrant who is likely to surprise in this event, as he had much success at the distance last year. Jimmy Barron, the long-limbed halfback, is capable of turning in a good time card for this race also.
In the two-mile several of the above names appear, those of Frank Morton, Bud Lafferty and Jack Werner. Morton is a seasoned performer in this event as well as in the mile.
Those out for the hurdles, both the 120 and the 220 yard stick races, are Bill Wilson, Andy Sullivan, Bob Orr and Deac Lcchner. Wilson and Sullivan arc fast men in the sprints and should use their speed to good advantage in getting over the obstacles.
Bob Orr is also out for the broad jump, with Tom Kearney. In the high jump the Gray Fog entrants are Jack Werner and Bill Wilson.
Jack O’Marie, Bob Sullivan and Tom Fecrick are the only Ignatians active in the remaining field events. O’Marie throws the discus, Sullivan puts the shot and Fecrick tosses the spear.

Experience was the sum total of the assets listed at the end of the season by the St. Ignatius tennis varsity, but the racket men expressed satisfaction, commenting that experience was sufficient.
The net team, captained by James K. McGee and including in its ranks such stars as Wilson O’Brien, Lloyd Joseph, Mark Joseph and Martin Kcneally, played three intercollegiate matches during the months of February and March, winning one and losing two.
The squad opened its season on February 17 at Stanford, meeting the Stanford varsity in a five-match contest. The Cards took every match from the Ignatians. Wheatly of Stanford defeated McGee of St. Ignatius, 6-0, 6-1; Herrington of Stanford defeated L. Joseph of St. Ignatius, 6-2, 6-3; McElvenny of Stanford defeated O’Brien of St. Ignatius, 6-0, 6-0. The team fared just as badly at the hands of the Card doubles squads, when Wheatley and Thomas downed McGee and O’Brien, 6-2, 6-3, and Herrington and McElvenny won from Mark Joseph and Kcneally, 6-0,6-0.
This was a harsh setback with which to open the season, but undaunted the net squad tackled California on the Berkeley courts, just one month later. The improvement was remarkable. In spite of the fact that the Ignatians did not take a match, the showing made differed vastly from that made at Stanford. Many of the matches against the Bear netmen could have gone either way.
Martin McKee, left-handed first string man of the Bears, opened the play with a victory over Jimmy McGee of St. Ignatius in a match in which the Gray Fog captain had a lead of 4-2 in the second set. McKee won, 6-2, 6-4.
Keneally of St. Ignatius, after taking the first set from Bob Hager of California, dropped the second place match, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2. Keneally developed a bad blood blister in this match. Lloyd Joseph wielded his southpaw bat with effectiveness to push Nebo Chasseur to the limit before the Californian won out, 6-4, 7-5. Wilson O’Brien lost 6-0, 6-0 to Dick Hoogs of the Bears in the other singles played. Mark Joseph also lost his singles match. California took the doubles.
There is really one intercollegiate endeavor of the net squad that should be revealed in full. The matches against St. Mary’s on March 18, the day following the California games, climaxed the season with a victory.
O’Brien and the Joseph brothers all won their singles, McGee being the only Ignatian to drop a match, a hard-fought engagement with Lopes, leading man of the Gaels. The only other match lost was a doubles match in which O’Brien and Lloyd Joseph fell before the Gaelic racketers.

Rallies and Smokers
HE first football rally for the 1927 season came in the form of a triumphal assembly of undergraduates in celebration of the Gray Fog’s sweep over the Nevada Wolfpack. Convened by Al Scott, varsity yell leader, the Monday morning following the game, on the east steps of the Arts building, a throng of appreciative students barked out "locomotives” and "Whispering Saints” with a punch which promised big things in a rooting way for St. Ignatius during the year.
Father President, Edward J. Whelan, S. J., delivered a brief address to the gathering, marked by enthusiasm in the progress of Ignatian football.
Captain Tom Carothers, greeted with an outburst of wild applause, gave one of those direct, pithy talks which characterize all his athletic oratory.
The appearance of Coach Jimmy Needles was a signal for more noise. Jimmy quietly sketched the type of varsity he was producing and its probable accomplishments for the impending season.
Dan Murphy, president of the A. S. S. I. C., and Manager Ed McQuade concluded the program of speakers, all of whom instilled not a little quiet confidence as to this year’s athletic outlook.
Santa Clara Game
Friday, October 7, saw a rally tendered by all divisions of the college as a preface to the St. Ignatius-Santa Clara game the following Sunday. Coach Jimmy Needles, Mr. Lorenzo Malone, S. J., moderator of athletics, Darrell W. Daly of the board of athletic control, delivered the principal addresses of the evening, all predicting a real struggle with the Broncos from the valley.
Talent, graciously supplied by various city clubs, including a leather pushing act staged by Olympic Club members, provided entertainment for the affair. What was most interesting in the way of novelty, was the attendance at the rally of co-eds, the first crop of that species ever to attend a St. Ignatius rally in the status of students.
Football Block Awards
A well-deserved rally in appreciation of a much deserving varsity—one of St. Ignatius’ most lively rooting parties—formed an ideal setting for the 1927 football block awards.
With the auditorium packed with Fog supporters, Father Edward J. Whelan, S. J., conferred block S. I. sweaters on nineteen varsity members. In addition to the white garment, "Red” Vaccaro, gridiron favorite and veteran of the varsity, received a green and gold blanket, his "sheepskin” for four years of football service.
£ o I G N A T I A N
Sometime later, at a dinner tendered the varsity by the Associated Students at the Hotel Whitcomb, "Red” was unanimously voted the Boyle Medal, which is annually awarded to "the player, who, by his conduct on the field, has been the source of most inspiration to his team mates.”
In passing, it should be revealed that at this same dinner it was decided not to elect a captain until some of the varsity members attained their senior year, thus excluding the possibility of a permanent captain for the 1928 season. During the coming season a captain for each game will be named by Coach Needles, it was agreed.
At the block award rally, Mr. Malone, S. J., who followed Father President on the speakers’ list, commended the gridders for their conduct not only on the field, but off the scene of battle as well, and then launched into a sanguinary prophecy of what the varsity basketball would do and later did.
The "Junior Quartette,” composed of Aldana, List, Laydcn and Scott, and sundry juvenile clog-dancers supplied the remainder of the evening’s diversion. So passed the 1927 football varsity—J. R. Needles’ best to date.
Thanksgiving Eve has become a two-year old tradition at St. Ignatius, with its annual big game rally, heralding the St. Ignatius-Loyola "Game of Two Cities.”
This year’s affair was as successful as the game which climaxed the season the following day. The senior class of the Arts and Sciences division in conjunction with representatives of the Schools of Law and Commerce, saw their exertion rewarded with the most spirited rally that the college ever staged.
The auditorium early in the evening was packed with blaring notes escaping from brass band instruments and with men students and their frailer complements, all lending color to the picture with green and gold rooters’ caps, the promotion of one George Maloney.
A group of professional players started off with a skit which brought down the house—from the balcony to the main floor. The song and dance act which followed was succeeded in turn by the "Junior Quartette.” The remainder of the musical program was contributed by the Glee Club, offering a number of selections and leading the assembled S. I. men in a lusty rendition of "Fight for St. Ignatius.”
Darrell W. Daly, secretary of the board of athletic control, in the role of master of ceremonies, introduced Pat Fraync, sports and sporting editor of the San Francisco Call and an alumnus of Loyola, who for both
142«C- £ 0-
I G N A T I A N o s
reasons passed the buck with a few cracks to Graduate Manager McLaughlin of Loyola.
Following the Loyola impresario’s lacrimose prophecy for St. Ignatius, President Costello of the Loyola Alumni Association lent a serious touch to the affair with a eulogy of St. Ignatius’ many benefactors and an exposition of his alma mater’s plight.
Yell leaders Scott, Mensor and Merrill interspersed yells and songs through the program.

HISTORY was made, tradition founded, at the expense and discomfort—both mental and physical—of the class of 1930 in the first Ignatian class brawl, Thursday, September 8. Although the sophs had voted against any test of strength—out of deference to the size and number of the frosh—they acceded to the proposals of Dean H. F. Flynn, S. J., Coach Jimmy Needles and the Block Club who formed the "bigger and better, onward and upward,” etc., faction. The sophs tried, but in vain; the brawn and number of the frosh prevailed.
To offset the two-to-one majority of the yearlings, plans called for picked teams to contest the events of the afternoon. But they were only plans—as a matter of fact, the same band of valiant sophs in every event, against different teams of frosh, who swarmed Ignatian Field in veritable hordes.
Aside from this, the program was ably conducted. Coach Jimmy Needles acted as master of ceremonies, assisted by a Block Club committee of Ray O’Connor, ’29, Dan Murphy, ’28, Jack Kavanaugh, ’28, George Maloney, ’29, Jack Patridge, ’29, and Ed McQuade, ’28.
A novel bucking-machine contest opened the program. The frosh threw three sets of football linesmen into the fray, driving back every available second year hope.
The tug-o-war, the next feature, seemed at first to hold better chance for the sophs. Surely with the redoubtable George Duffy as anchor man, the class of ’30 were expected to do well. But the yearlings had been inspired by their initial victory and slowly dragged Duffy et al. through the mud and spray of the middle zone.
A greased pig was then loosed on the field, but he did not choose to run for ’30 and 31. Whether he was chagrined at the company he was forced to keep no one can say, but unquestionably he was the most apathetic porker ever seen off a dinner plate. Finally he was retired to his private box, the event ruled out, and the program continued.
Amid clouds of dust, permitting unrestained shin-gouging, the frosh won the jousting bouts. By use of the flying wedge, the sophs were able to draw in the pushball contest.
The frosh chose Jimmy Merrill and Dick Parina to match against Jack Casey and Tom Carothers of the sophs in an effort to garner the pennant atop a thirty-foot greased flagpole. This foursome maneuvered at length until by some Herculean turn Parina held the soph assailants long enough for Merrill to capture the gonfalon. As he slid down, the ’3 1 men rallied around the pole in victorious melee.

eVERY good banquet, like every good play, must have a climax. Often it is merely material, reaching its consummation at the demi tasse. More infrequently, it is found in some sparkling wit or majestic oratory following the feast. On occasions all too few, it comes when a gathering is electrified by some stirring force which seems to quicken the whole with a new and glorious spirit. Such was the climax of the annual Alumni Banquet on December 15, 1927. True, the committee in charge had provided one of the splendid repasts for which the Palace Hotel is noted, and afterwards a few chosen alumni had recounted the glories of the past or inspired their hearers with visions of greater things to come, in a manner seldom equalled before. But the master chord that touched the depths of the heart of every alumnus was sounded when Father Edward J. Whelan, S. J., president of the college, in simple words announced the gift of $100,000 by James D. Phelan to his Alma Mater for the further growth and upbuilding of the college. There came then the realization that through the generosity of one who had not forgotten the inspiration of other days at St. Ignatius, the dreams and yearnings and hopes for the future so vividly portrayed by the speakers of the evening, were to be magnificently advanced. This was the climax of the dinner.
And a fitting climax it was. At the invitation of C. Harold Caulfield, ’13, chairman of the Banquet Committee, a goodly number of the old boys had met again to renew old friendships, to clasp hands with old companions and to pay affectionate tribute to old professors, and in every respect the event was worthy of its predecessors.
Charles P. Knights, 12, whose able administration as President of the alumni was drawing to a close, conducted the meeting through the business of the evening in his usual efficient style.
Joseph A. Murphy, 01, then assumed command and presided over the festivities in his accustomed genial manner. The following worthy alumni responded to his summons:
William A. O’Brien, ’24, representing the younger alumni, who discoursed in masterful style on the new spirit of the college.
James R. Needles, who summed up the important topic of athletics in a way that won instantly the interest and support of all.
Eustace Cullinan, ’07, who, in polished manner and keen analytical mind, brought forth some impressive thoughts on the Jesuit college man, and the place he must take in the West today.
Father Richard A. Gleeson, S. J., beloved moderator of the alumni, whose kindly words brought inspiration to us all.

Father D. J. Mahony, S. J., dear to the heart of every alumnus, received his usual tribute when he spoke a few affectionate words to the "old grads” and cordially invited all to visit El Retiro San Inigo, where he is now engaged, with Father Zacheus Maher, ’00, at the "spiritual country club.”
Then Father Whelan’s address on the progress of the college, of absorbing interest, culminating in the announcement of Senator Phelan’s splendid gift.
The ringing applause which swept through the hall after the first moment of gratified surprise, had been preceded only a few minutes before by that which greeted the election of Senator Phelan to the office of President of the Alumni. In presenting the name of the distinguished alumnus, Hon. Matt I. Sullivan sketched his many achievements as citizen and statesman since his graduation with the class of 1881. As financier and litcrateur, he has contributed much to the prosperity and culture of California. As Mayor of San Francisco, as Senator from California, and as a leader in every great civic movement, he has always been an outstanding and respected figure in the life of our city. State and Nation.
The election of Judge Matt I. Sullivan, ’76, to the office of Vice President also met with popular and well-deserved favor. Judge Sullivan, like Senator Phelan, has long merited and received public recognition, and has ever been a staunch supporter of things Ignatian. A member of one of the oldest classes now represented at alumni gatherings, he is most active in every endeavor for the good of the old institution.
John S. Drum, ’91, one of the mighty men of California Street, and prominent among the financial leaders of the West, was likewise elected Vice President. Mr. Drum has throughout his life retained a loyal affection for St. Ignatius, and the Association is honored in his assumption of this office.
Demonstrating the national scope of Ignatian affairs, the choice for the remaining office of Vice President fell upon Dr. A. H. Giannini, ’94, erstwhile medico, and now financial genius of the East. This merger of Atlantic and Pacific interests having been completed, much to the satisfaction of all present, Alumni stock was at once quoted 100 points higher. "Doc,” always in touch with Ignatian affairs, will keep alumni who arc far from home from being separated altogether from the old institution.
The office of Secretary was conferred upon George E. Devine, ’23, active among the younger alumni.
IGNATIAN o 5
The honesty and integrity of W. Urie Walsh, ’24, rising attorney, as well as his "go get it” spirit, were honored in his election to the office of Treasurer. Walsh is remembered among the newer generation for his energies in college affairs a few years ago, and has since carried the same activity into the alumni. Financial affairs are sure to be ably administered under Urie’s direction.
Under the leadership of these officers, aided by an enthusiastic Executive Committee, the Association has embarked upon an extensive program for the year. First in the order of time, was a reception and breakfast, in which our Association participated, given in honor of the visiting Notre Dame Glee Club at the Palace Hotel on January 3, 1928.
St. Ignatius College was represented this year at the annual conference of alumni secretaries of the Pacific Coast, held at the University of California on February 1 1, 1928. Many valuable contacts were thus established with the alumni officers and associations of other colleges. Problems of alumni organization and business affairs were discussed during the day, with a profitable exchange of ideas.
Gold basketballs were presented to the college basketball team, champions of the Far Western Conference, at an informal dinner at the Whitcomb Hotel arranged in honor of the team by the alumni. The event was attended largely by the loyal band of alumni who had consistently followed the fortunes of the team at every game throughout the season. Short and effective talks were made by Jack Whelan, who presided, Frank Hughes, Captain Jack Patridge, Captain-elect Ray Maloney, and Jim Needles, who was the recipient of a gold watch.
The Alumni Association of St. Ignatius College was represented again this year at the annual convention of the National Catholic Alumni Federation in New York on April 20, 21, and 22. This body, composed of the alumni organizations of 39 of the leading Catholic colleges of the country, is making steady progress in the interests of Catholic colleges and alumni throughout the country. St. Ignatius College, by the way, and St. Mary’s College of Oakland, are the only western institutions represented in the national organization, and this evidence of the enterprising spirit of the two Pacific Coast colleges was recently the subject of most favorable comment in "America,” which singled out the two western colleges for special mention. We have been fortunate in being represented this year, as in the past by Dr. A. H. Giannini, ’94, and Edmund W. Marks, ’81.

At the present writing, a dance is being planned which will bring together in social festivities alumni who for many years have been entirely occupied with the sterner things of life, as well as those whose devotion to Terpsichore is constant and unfailing. The affair is to be in the nature of a homecoming for all alumni, being held in the auditorium of the new college building, and the stately halls will no doubt resound with surprised exclamations of old boys who cannot imagine anything Ignatian except in terms of the old wooden shacks. This will be the first strictly alumni event to be held in the new building, and no doubt a large gathering of quondam students will take advantage of the occasion to visit the new edifice.
An item in the daily press under date of November IS, 1927, under the heading of "Twenty-five Years Ago Today” reads as follows:
"Graduates of St. Ignatius College formed an Alumni Association, with Judge Jeremiah Sullivan as President, and the following in other offices and committee memberships: John E. Fitzpatrick, John A. Hicks, Henry P. Bowie, Albert A. Whittle, Rev. J. Gleason, W. A. Breen, George Connolly, John S. Drum, Dr. A. H. Giannini, Frank C. Cleary, John F. Brooks, Joseph S. Tobin, Edward F. Luby.”
While our organization has associations running back much further than a quarter of a century, it is interesting to note the point to which it had arrived so many years ago. The names of all in this little group are familiar even now to every Ignatian Alumnus. Some live on only in the hearts of their fellows and in the grateful memory of their Alma Mater. Others are to this day our staunchest members, whose faces brighten every alumni gathering, and whose shoulders are always to the wheel.
San Francisco has been well represented at Washington in its delegation sent to convince the President and Congress of the necessity of a bay bridge, in the presence of Hon. Matt I. Sullivan, ’76, and Hon. James Rolph, Jr., ’19. If permission for the span is not granted shortly, it will not be for lack of intelligent and earnest effort on the part of these representatives.
Monsignor Joseph M. Gleason, ’87, for nineteen years pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Church at Palo Alto, was recently appointed pastor of St. Francis de Sales Church, Oakland, to succeed the late Monsignor Dempsey. Monsignor Gleason is well known, not only among the "old grads,” but throughout the state by reason of his services in the Philippines during the Spanish American war and in China during the Boxer rebellion.

Father Culligan, Jubilarian
FATHER WILLIAM H. CULLIGAN, S. J., was the first of the two venerable Jesuit priests to be feted in 1927 on the occasion of their attaining fifty years in the Society of Jesus. Father Culligan preceded Father Richard A. Gleeson, S. J., who also celebrated his golden jubilee within the past scholastic year, by a little over three months, Father Culligan having entered the Order on July 30, 1877, and Father Gleeson in the latter part of October.
Born in San Francisco, Father Culligan received his early education at St. Ignatius College and while yet a mere youth entered the Society of Jesus on the feast day of its founder.
His novitiate was made at Santa Clara University and later he came back to St. Ignatius College as a professor. His divinity course was pursued at Woodstock, Maryland, from 1890 until he was ordained by Cardinal Gibbons on June 29, 1893.
After his ordination Father Culligan returned to his native state to occupy the office of Minister at Santa Clara University from 1893 to 1894. At the turn of the century he was spiritual father of the students of St. Ignatius College.
Following several other important offices in San Jose and Santa Clara Father Culligan was transferred to Seattle in 1918, where he was appointed to the pastorate of the Church of the Immaculate Conception. It was while he was in this capacity that Father Culligan established the envelope system for Sunday collections. So successful was it that the system was adopted by other churches in the northern city, and has since spread beyond that diocese.
In 1925, after long years of struggle to remove the debt that oppressed St. Ignatius College, the faculty was apprised of the fact that Father Culligan was to be sent to them to apply his financial genius to the amelioration of the condition of his Alma Mater. At St. Ignatius he was Secretary-Treasurer and proceeded to introduce the successful envelope system which in a short time yielded a building fund of growing proportions. The present Arts and Science building, the first unit of the building program, is a product of Father Culligan’s energy and initiative in financial matters.
Father Culligan was the eleventh St. Ignatius graduate to enter the Society. Fifty years after his entrance he returned to lend realization to a dream which was born when he was an undergraduate at the college— an imposing set of buildings on Ignatian Heights.
This jubilarian is a model for the undergraduates of today.

"Fifty Years a Priest”
year 1927 was the fiftieth year of Father Richard A. Glecson’s identification with the Society of Jesus and his golden jubilee was celebrated in a manner that must have made observers ruminate on how the Church honors those who persist in the un-glamorous tasks of a priest.
Richard A. Gleeson was born in Philadelphia on December 24, 1861, and joined the Jesuit order at the age of sixteen. He had been in the order but a week when a Jesuit a.-rived in Philadelphia from a tour of Europe in search of young men who would volunteer to work in the California missions, where there was a dearth of priests and vocations.
Father Gleeson applied for membership in the party and the next day left with fourteen other young men for California. He arrived here on September 28, 1877.
Rev. Richard A. Gief.son
During his years as a priest, Father Gleeson was intimately connected with the work of educating Catholic young men. He was successively Prefect of Studies at Santa Clara, and later at the Sacred Heart Novitiate at Los Gatos. From 1905 to 1910 he was president of Santa Clara and from 1911 to 1914 president of Loyola College at Los Angeles, having been the founder and first president of that institution. Later he was appointed provincial of all the Jesuit houses in the West.
Since 1918 Father Gleeson has been in charge of the St. Ignatius Conservation League, an organization responsible in a great measure for the clearing of the debt on the college.
This silver-haired priest was tendered what was perhaps the most remarkable tribute an individual ever received in this city. His jubilee celebration opened with a solemn high Mass at St. Ignatius Church on Sunday, November 13, of which the jubilarian was celebrant. The following Monday evening he was guest at a public reception in the Gold Room of the Palace Hotel, where one thousand of his friends gathered to do him honor, among them being Mayor James Rolph, Jr. Following the reception, a testimonial dinner was held in the Gold and Rose Rooms of the hotel.
All during both functions, the jubilarian was the cynosure of innumerable compliments and congratulations.

'Tour Years After”
FDUR years ago, assembled in the old buildings down on Hayes Street, some sixty students enrolled as the first freshman class of the Commerce and Finance Department.
During the four years that have passed, many of these students found it impossible to continue their studies, and were forced to leave school, until finally with the beginning of the senior year, the class had dwindled down to ten. But these ten men have stuck together through their last year, and when, on the eve of May 23, the senior classes of all the Departments of the College will gather together for the commencement exercises, this class will go down in history as the first to graduate from the Commerce and Finance Department.
It takes years fully to organize a course of study such as is presented in this department, and it will be a source of consolation to these men to feel that through their efforts they have played an important part in giving to St. Ignatius College a course of study which, within a few short years, will equal in prominence an importance any of the other well-known departments which go to make up the college.
Not only did the men of this senior class do much towards developing the course laid out for the Commerce and Finance Department, but they also gave a great deal of their outside time to further the social and student body activities that fill the yearly calendar of the college.
They fought for recognition from the Law School Student Body, and through their persistent efforts were admitted as members, thereby changing the name to Law and Commerce Student Body. Through their zeal and the interest they took in school affairs, they were appointed as members on all the committees handling school functions, until finally when the elections were held for student body officers for the year 1927-28, despite the fact that they were outnumbered by the Law College, they succeeded in electing one of their number as vice president, the first student body office to be held by a commerce man.
This senior class leaves behind it an enviable record. Even though it will pass from the classrooms of the college at graduation, yet it will not be forgotten quite so quickly as other senior classes, because it possesses a certain immortal characteristic—it is the firs senior class.

The Story of a College
IN the year of the Vigilantes, 1 85 5, when San Francisco was a small and somewhat lawless town, the Rev. Anthony Maraschi, S. J., sought and obtained permission to open a new parish church. "Any place over there,” said Archbishop Alemany, as he pointed to the sand hills beyond the city limits.
Without any delay Father Maraschi secured a hundred vara lot—275 square feet—on the south side of Market Street, midway between Fourth and Fifth, and, with borrowed money, undertook the erection of a church, parochial residence and a school building. The church was dedicated July 1 5, 185 5, and the school, a rudely constructed wooden building of but one room, 40x25 feet, was opened for the reception of pupils on October 15 of the same year.
The new institution was situated in what was then known as St. Ann’s Valley, a small strip of low land between surrounding sand hills. The "Faculty Building” was so small that Father Maraschi and his companion, Father Michael Accolti, had to share the same room, while two Jesuit brothers, together with a Frenchman, an old soldier of Napoleon’s army, slept on rude bunks in the attic.
The records make mention of but one student, Richard McCabe, entering the institution on the opening day, and of one professor, Mr. John Haley, a young Irishman.
In the spring of 1856 a plank walk was built between the primitive institution and the city proper. Sand hills on all sides made necessary a somewhat circuitous route—north on Stockton street to O’Farrell, along O’Farrell to Dupont (now Grant Avenue), on Dupont to Sutter and on Sutter to Montgomery.
In 18 58 there were sixty-five pupils and six professors. In August 1858, the fourth annual session of St. Ignatius Day School was announced in "The Monitor,” a Catholic weekly, and in the secular newspaper. "Accommodations much better than heretofore,” promised the advertisement and gave this list of studies in bold face type: "Rhetoric, Grammar, Composition, Elocution, Mathematics, Book-keeping, Arithmetic, Ancient and Modern Languages, History, Geography, Penmanship, Music and Drawing.” It was a strange medley of studies but it must be remembered that the school was open to all grades from the elementary classes to Philosophy and Science.
In 18 59 the institution was officially recognized by the General of the Society of Jesus as an incipient college and application was made to the State Legislature for a charter. On April 30, the charter was granted and "Under the style and title of St. Ignatius College.” the little institution was "empowered to confer degrees, with such literary honors as are granted in any University in the United States.”
IGNATIAN ocs®-i $
Heartened by these recognitions, the Fathers undertook to enlarge the school and secured more property on Jessie Street, where they erected a large wooden building with ample appointments for educational work. This induced 475 pupils to attend in 1862.
The first recipient of the degree of Bachelor of Arts was one Augustus Bowie, who entered the college as early as 18 56. He was graduated with honors as a Bachelor of Arts in 1863. The following year there were no graduates. At that time a three-day public oral examination was held for aspirants for a degree. The questions were taken from three of Cicero’s orations, the second book of the Odes of Horace and the sixth and seventh books of Homer’s Iliad.
In January, 1880, the college was transferred to the new and commodious structure on Van Ness Avenue, where, until April, 1906, the regular Jesuit course was marked with success. For nearly twenty years the elementary grades were retained partly because there were but few parochial schools in the city. At one time there were as many as 1100 names on the roster but the college registration was small. During the second twenty-five years of the college’s life there were only 82 successful degree students, or only a little more than three a year.
In October, 1905, St. Ignatius College celebrated its Golden Jubilee. For the first time in its history the institution was out of debt and even had money on hand and plans for expansion at heart. The Fathers hoped to move the High School to a new site beyond Fillmore Street, where new and cheap land was then available, and to remodel the Van Ness Avenue buildings for the exclusive use of college students. A law school and a department of medicine and allied sciences were contemplated.
Then, of a sudden, came the earthquake and the fire. In a few hours the work of fifty years was undone. The college library which harbored some rare volumes, the physical cabinet of which the college was so proud, the new gymnasium and the church, with but few equals in the United States, all were swept out of existence.
But the Jesuit Fathers were among the first to rebuild. Again was the college housed in a wooden building, far from the center of town and again was the institution burdened with debt, and so heavily burdened that in 1919 it was on the verge of bankruptcy. An appeal was made to the people of San Francisco. The facts were placed before them—St. Ignatius had a debt of more than a million dollars and was unable to pay the interest. The response was generous and immediate. In less than two months $330,000 was pledged and at the close of a year one hundred per cent of this money was collected. By the May Festival in 1921 and the sale of the Van Ness Avenue property the debt was reduced by more than $700,000.
o I G N A T I A N oc
Through the generosity of Mrs. Berthe L. Welsh, a new faculty building was erected on its present site and the wooden building on Hayes and Shrader Streets was remodeled to accommodate more than 1000 students.
In 1912, the law school was established and proved to be one of the most successful of its kind in the state. It was organized under the direction of Rev. John J. Ford, S. J., and for the first few years classes were held in the Grant Building on Market Street. Then it became expedient to move the school to the quarters on Hayes and Shrader Streets, where it was housed until 1927.
During the war the college was converted into a Students’ Army Training Corps and gave a large measure of her sons to the service of the nation.
Since 1906 the elementary classes were gradually dropped but it was not until 1918 that the preparatory school was limited to the high school grades. The growth of parochial school in adjacent parishes made it unnecessary to continue instruction in the primary grades. Once the high school was set apart, it waxed strong until now it ranks as the largest Catholic boys’ high school in the west.
In August, 1924, the college of Commerce and Finance was instituted in the evening division, the first graduates of which, Bachelors of Commercial Science, will receive their diplomas this May. St. Ignatius became co-educational with the opening of the fall semester in 1927, in the new Liberal Arts unit, when women students were allowed to register in the Evening College, which was organized in September, 1927, and which consists of courses in literature, languages, history, philosophy, industrial chemistry and commercial sciences.
At the re-opening of classes in August, 1927, the college was moved into a new building, the Liberal Arts unit, erected during the preceding year on a Fulton Street block, adjoining the Faculty residence. Here, with improved equipment and surroundings, San Francisco’s pioneer institution of higher learning has already begun to realize its long-frustrated desire to be of larger usefulness to the neighboring community and to the state.

Chesterton; An Estimate
By Conrad T. Hubttcr, ’28
f7 ?HOSE who were present at the fest of reason and the flow of soul held by a prominent Western critic some months ago, heard Gilbert Keith Chesterton most inaptly characterized as "sometimes alive”; most inaptly, I say, because vitality is of the very essence of Chesterton, and vibrant energy is as inseparable from him as his adiposis. A big man, and an active one, he exibits his preference for these characteristics with Chestertonian egotism. Like Caesar, he has a preference for men who are well fed; his heroines, although he rather neglects women, always have red hair. This worship of the robust is a fundamental fact of all his work, and as a critic of letters he confines himself almost entirely to big men. His book on the Victorian era shows an indifference to little people, and like Will Durant he gives only his own opinions about his own selection of big men. However, I do not seek to criticise him for lack of imagination or industry because he picks men already so well written about, for the truth is quite otherwise. The truth is merely that Mr. Chesterton prefers big things.
In his criticisms of big men, Chesterton possesses that rare ability which we have so frequently heard attributed to Wordsworth. He sees the obvious, which the small critic is apt to miss. He is a natural reactionary, not a great or courageous thinker, and rather than a stylist he is the possessor of a trick style. He considers himself orthodox, while he is a rebel against orthodoxy; and we will see that a more fitting appelation was bestowed on him by the man who said he is "an undergraduate who never grew up.” The normal tendency of the bright young man is to criticise prevailing shibboleths, whether they are the shibboleths of orthodoxy or of free thought, of conservatism or of communism. Garibaldi and Mussolini were both successful in their appeal to youth, though Garibaldi fought for freedom against the tyranny of the Church, and Mussolini for authority against the tyranny of the mob.
Applying these facts to Chesterton we see that he is only orthodox by accident. He was brought up in religion and his first reaction made him an agnostic. While still in his teens he read Huxley and joined an ethical society, but rationalism soon faded out and after playing around with the modern fads until he was surfeited Chesterton dedicated his life to opposing the highbrows. A complete reactionary, he represented the antiintellectuals. He became the champion of the ordinary man, he took the philosophy of the man in the street, and the views of the man in the gallery. The result was paradoxical. The average democrat whom G. K.C. extolls, prefers Thomas Hardy, whom Chesterton politely described as "the village atheist brooding over the village idiot,” yet Chesterton’s own
167:r £ o-
readers are composed mostly of those sophisticated moderns whom he denounces but frequently loves.
He started on his career by writing for thirteen years for a Liberal Party journal. The situation became absurd. The paper would advocate temperance, Chesterton would sing the glories of beer; and before he severed his connections with the paper, the readers had come to almost invariably expect an article attacking some of their pet beliefs, which would afterwards have to be corrected by an editorial on the same page. Up to this time Chesterton had not fully developed that intolerable narrow-mindedness and strong prejudice which he now boasts; he merely defended his own opinions. Soon he soldered his friendship with Belloc and lost his personal views at the same time. He became the echo of Belloc. His sentiments on all questions were the same as Belloc’s; he criticised vegetarians and socialists, and praised good beer; Belloc hated Jews, Chesterton became an anti-Semite. Chesterton adopted Belloc’s views in religion and politics, and Chesterton the reactionary became Chesterton the Catholic.
Chesterton’s style is part of the man. He is the journalist writing for the day only. Unique and as inimitable as Shakespeare, nevertheless he writes only for the times and he treats all things as contemporary. In spite of his wonderful argumentation, and his intuitive gift of feeling for just the right metaphor to voice the impression, nevertheless his works are doomed to early oblivion, which is the inevitable result of the journalistic touch. He seems to seek for debating points rather than to debate. He invents a grotesque situation, some absurd hypothesis, and placing it in juxtaposition with the normal, by a few strokes of wit and irony and an epigram or two puts his point over, its weakness lost in the brilliancy of the style. Although he loves a good fighter and is always just, he is not generous. His infernal prejudice will not allow him to tolerate alien views, and lie scorns them with Chestertonian egotism. Take for instance the introduction to his book on George Bernard Shaw: '‘Most people either say that they agree with Bernard Shaw or that they do not understand him. I am the only person who understands him and I do not agree with him.”
In addition to this ipse dixit, and his general lack of courtesy, Chesterton has a habit of emitting a string of epigrams and treating them as an argument; having thus distracted his opponent, he then accuses him of an ignoratio elenchi.
When he came to argue upon religion, Chesterton stood upon all the tricks at his command. He attacked the skeptics with their own weapons, and with unfailing high spirits jested about solemn themes, for to use his own expression, "what is the use of a religion that cannot stand a jest?” Furthermore, Chesterton is at his best as a destructive critic of other men’s
o ;c X
£ o IGNATIAN
creeds, and the Chestcrtonian philosophy with all its parade of common sense against professors, is extraordinarily effective from its very paradoxical ultra-modernness. The man possesses an uncanny cleverness in exposing loose thought and half-baked philosophy, and for these we praise him. But why in the name of common sense is Chesterton always parading his views on religion? His novels are merely excuses for his characters to obtrude long-winded opinions on religion which make Shaw’s prefaces seem like epigrams. His only play, '‘Magic,” resolves itself down to a lengthy discussion on "do miracles happen?” and his critical works arc an attempt to show how the opinions of other men can be resolved into his.
No wonder people are always crying "Why does Chesterton have to obtrude his Catholicism?” In his defense of himself published in a recent issue of "America,” Chesterton claimed that it was an exaggeration of people who were looking for such things in his work, but his defense is poor. He is too aggressively Catholic.
In summary, therefore, I would say let us cherish Chesterton as a wit, as a stylist, and as a philosopher; and because of these, let us pardon his discourtesy in controversy, and let us forgive though he will not allow us to forget his aggressive religious zeal.
