IGNATIUS COLLEGE FRANK JAMES STUART JAMES BERNARD STUART. JR. JOHN ALBERT SULLIVAN42 The IGNATIAN 1929 WHEN wc turn back the pages of history and gaze at the previous classes that have graduated from St. Ignatius College in days gone by, and then look at the present number leaving, we are startled at the amazing increase. From mere groups of eight or ten, the figure has increased to far over ninety at this present year. Well do the men, the second class to leave the new building on the "Heights," remember the hardships and struggles that have been encountered in the years gone by since they started as freshmen in the old wooden buildings on Hayes Street. Francis X. Kf.rner They have watched the growth of the school for four years and have given all their efforts towards the attainment of an end that once seemed impossible and now is a reality. On the threshold of manhood, they now leave their Alma Mater and go out into the world to seek their fortunes on the highway of life. Deep in their hearts are fond recollections and memories of that college which has striven so hard to fortify them against the trials and temptations of the world. i 1 DIVISION OF ARTS AND SCIHNCE The activities of the senior di ision of Arts and Science have been quite numerous during the foregoing year. Francis X. Kerner was elected president at the beginning of the term and carried out the duties imposed by that office in a very proper manner. The other officers elected were: Richard J. Hecht, vice-president; Lawrence E. Mclnerney, secretary; Thomas G. List, treasurer; and James F. Layden sergeant-at-arms. The men chosen to represent the class were Richard J. Hecht and Daniel C. Deasy, Jr. The first thought of the seniors was to procure some distinguishing mark whereby they might easily be recognised. Rings were decided upon, and through the efforts of Edward K. Butler, a very appropriate and conservative design was found. With the new system of having senior managers for various sports being established this year, a number of the members of the class were kept quite busy during the seasons in which their respective sports predominated. The men chosen as managers were: Jack Patridge, general manager; George Malone)', manager of football; John J. Coleman, manager of track; and Richard J. Hecht. manager of minor sports.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 43 Numerous committees were formed towards the end of the year to take charge of various incidentals connected with graduation. Francis J. Colligan ably directed the men forming them. Social affairs were given during the term, towards the close of which an exclusive dinner dance was held at the Lakeside Country Club. i DIVISION OF COMMERCE AND FINANCE The past year at St. Ignatius has been one of unusual interest to the members of the Senior Commerce and Finance class, and the results achieved in various activities have more than fulfilled their expectations. Shortly after the start of the Fall term the election of class officers took place, Paul Spottiswood receiving the office of president. The other men elected were: Harr)- A. Hunt, vice-president; James B. Stuart, treasurer; William J. Loftus, sergeant-at-arms; and Frank Stuart and Frank Morgan, executive committee representatives. The annual banquet held at the F.lks Club proved to be the outstanding event of the year, and one of the most interesting features of the evening was the adoption of organization plans for the founding of the Commerce Alumni Club. Although but a small group of men, this class deserves a great deal of credit for its earnest cooperation in all school activities, whether scholastic or social. i DIVISION OF LAW The Fall of 1928 found forty-three students ready to embark on their final year of legal training at St. Ignatius. The survivors of three years of strenuous toil faced together their last ordeal. The demands on their time exacted by studies left little opportunity for class social life during this period. A banquet was tendered to the Honorable Maurice T. Dooling on the occasion of his elevation to the Superior Bench in the early part of the Fall term. The officers elected for the year were: Toland C. McGeitigan, president; John A. Sullivan, vice-president; W. Cooley, Jr., treasurer; Walter Whelan, secretary; Charles Rockwell, sergeant-at-arms; and George McKnew and Edward M. Jacobsen, executive committee representatives. Toland C.

POWERS THEODORE TAMBA WILLIAM JOHN LOFTUS FRANCIS LOUIS MORAN46 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 Class of 1930 i DIVISION OF- ARTS AND SCIENCE HE Junior class held its first meeting towards the end of August. The men elected to office were: Raymond P. Maloney, president; John J. Casey, vice-president; John E. O’Marie, secretary-treasurer; and William B. Spohn and Charles J. Maestri were chosen as class members of the executive committee. The first important business that arose was concerning the choice of some distinguishing wearing apparel, whereby Juniors might easily be recognised from other members of the Arts and Science student body. They decided after many long arguments and heated discussions that blue shirts and cords would be about the most collegiate Raymond P. Malonf.y costume that could be found. Thereafter, loyal members of the class of '30 were known at a distance by their outward appearances. Numerous class members were chosen as third year managers for various sports. They were awarded these positions as a result of the hard work they had done the previous year. Those men who were selected were: Joseph Rock and Joseph Gaddy, football; Harold Seguine and Charles Maestri, basketball; George Duffy and Charles Hoertkorn, baseball; and William Spohn and Joseph De Martini, track. These men in managerial offices very capably fulfilled all that was expected of them. The greatest task of the year that was undertaken by the Junior class was the Senior Ball. This dance was sponsored by the third year men in place of the Junior Prom, which has usually been the custom. It was a great success, and very gratefully appreciated by the upper classmen. Thus ends the calendar of the Junior Class. Although, taken as a body, they have not been so active, nevertheless it is crowded with individual stars who shine forth in all collegiate activities. i i DIVISION OF COMMERCE AND FINANCE The division of Commerce and Finance enjoyed a most successful year. At the beginning of the term the election of class officers took place. Charles O'Brien was chosen as president, William O'Brien vice-president, Cecil Dana secretary-treasurer, and Gus Gazzano was elected as class representative.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 47 On Saturday evening, December 15th, the traditional banquet of the upper class Commerce Division was held in combination with the seniors. The guests of honor were Mr. William Ryan and Mr. N. J. Busch, faculty members of the commerce department. The outstanding feature of the affair was the exceptional turkey dinner and the formulation of plans towards the organization of a commerce association. William O’Brien of this class was chosen as treasurer. By the combined efforts of all members of the class in all activities, a very successful year has passed. True college spirit was shown and a bright future is looked forward to in their last year. i DIVISION OF LAW "College life is a quip of the imagination,” remarked a member of the Junior class of the Law College, "and is of little significance to us." That student hit the nail on the head, for when you consider eight or more hours work during the day plus two hours within the wall of this institution of learning plus —?- hours in preparing your studies, you have little time left for play. However, some of the Juniors found time to romp the green fields and settle the golf supremacy of the class at Harding Municipal Links last Fall. About sixteen members of the class participated. Bobby Ainsworth captured the title and a handsome trophy. The annual Law and Commerce banquet was the only other event in which the Junior class participated collectively. It was held on the evening of May 23rd, at the St. Francis Hotel. This event was the largest function to be given by the evening college during the year, prior to 1928 the Senior class shouldered the responsibility entailed in presenting the dinner, but in that year the Juniors assumed the role of host to the outgoing graduates. Likewise, this year the class took the initiative and put forth one of the finest banquets yet to be given by any class of the Law and Commerce Colleges. Harry Grover was chairman of the banquet committee. Mr. Frank Baumgarten, the president of the class, assisted him, as did Messrs. Frank Kirby, Albert Ellcdgc, Robert Higgins, Arthur Holmes and Ray Sullivan. The officers of the Junior Law class for the year were: Frank Baumgarten president, Harry N. Grover vice-president. Thomas Lynch secretary-treasurer, and Daniel Murphy and Conrad Hub-ner executive committee representatives.

Devine THE sophomore class began the year with a great amount of pep and continued in this enthusiastic state until the end. On August 23, a day that will remain immortal in the minds of all freshmen, the first year men won what is officially called the Annual Brawl.” Most all the members of the class made themselves conspicuous by their presence, remembering, no doubt, the world old adage, "united we stand, divided we fall." They stood, alright, against the well concerted attack of the frosh, and for the rest of the year continued to hold the victory over their heads. During this week a Vigilance Committee was chosen to draw up a set of rules governing the actions of the freshmen. The rules are as follows: (1) Freshmen hats must be worn on the college grounds and in the vicinity on all college days, at rallies and at all athletic events in which the "Gray Fog” participates. (2) Freshmen may no: smoke in the Cafeteria. (3) Freshmen may not use the east steps of the Arts Building. (-1) Freshmen may not use the main entrance nor the paths leading thereto. ( ) Freshmen must be present at all rallies, games, etc., and must sit in the rooting section at all intercollegiate contests. (6) Freshmen arc obliged to attend the Freshman Reception. It is the campus etiquette that the Freshmen return this event with the Ignatian Spring informal, "The Freshman Fandango.” (7) Freshmen must at all times be courteous and allow upper classmen to precede them. (8) Freshmen must always carry their Student Handbooks. The duty of the Vigilance Committee was to sec that these regulations were strictly carried out. On the evening of the twenty-fifth of August, the class sponsored the second annual Freshman Reception Dance in the College Auditorium. All animosity that might have arisen as a result of the fracas two days preceding was forgotten and a spirit of jovial friendship pervaded the atmosphere. The hall was decorated as duly fitted the occasion. Green and gold lights flitted over the mass of twirling couples and here and there was the flash of spotlights from the balcony. This dance was the climax to an exciting week of welcome. It was considered a huge social success due to the combined action of the class as a whole and those men who worked on the committee. The committee consisted of Leo Butler, Lloyd Luckman,ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 63 James OGara, Vincent Lafferty and Tom Vlautin of the class of '31 and two upper division men, Frank Colligan and William Spohn. The next action of the class was to elect its officers for the term. The office of president was filled by Ralph A. Devine, whose activities during the previous year were very notable and worthy of the honor conferred upon him. The office of vice-president was given to James O Gara, that of secretary to Gerald Doyle, treasurer to Martin Reichlin, and sergeant-at-arms to Rene Bareilles. Towards the end of October the sophs held their annual banquet at Gigliettes, the same Italian restaurant in which they held their frosh banquet last year. The dinner itself was pronounced excellent and the speeches that followed even more so. Ralph Devine and Ted Kaplanis each emphasized the ability of the members of '31. Phil Wheeler, last but not least of the spokesmen, made a very logical and convincing syllogism, proving that the sophomore class was not only the best class in St. Ignatius College, but also the best class in the entire country. The committee in charge of the affair was composed of Messrs. Giubbini and Martin Reichlin. There was certainly no sign of inactivity taking hold of the sophs because immediately after this they decided that it was about time to give the famous "Sophomore Hop." The Block Club had been talking about giving a dance in rather doubtful terms, so what did the bright young second year men do but select Hallowe'en as the date for the occasion. Arrangements for the evening were made by a committee consisting of Jack Cullen, William Riley, Frank Brophy, Tom Vlautin, Ralph Devine, Leo Fee and Thomas Fitzpatrick.61 The IGNAT1AN ' 1929 They deserve much praise considering chat it only took a week or so from the time that it was thought of until the night that it was given. The Auditorium was decorated in an eerie manner. Bats, witches and black cats hung from all parts of the ceiling, and yellow and black crepe paper swung in a lazy manner from the chandeliers. Even with all the awe inspiring contrivances a very enjoyable evening was had by all those present, which amounted to over two hundred couples. All was quiet for a long time with nothing to do but see that the so-called ' inferior frosh” carried their Handbooks and complied with all the rules and regulations thereof, until suddenly, out of a clear sky, came the famous flag controversy. The frosh, attempting to play a practical joke on the sophomore class, had erected a freshman banner on the sophomore flag pole. This was discovered the morning after the crime had been committed, which, by the way, was Election Day. It took but a few minutes, however, with the aid of a long pole, to tear down the offending streamer. As a result of this insurrection, the Vigilance Committee enforced even more stringent rules than before upon the wily freshmen, and peace once again was established after a few muttered threats on the part of the insurgents. On Monday, February 13, the class held the first banquet of the second semester. The festivities were carried on at La Rosa Restaurant. Leo Butler very capably acted as toastmaster for the occasion. Those men in charge of the arrangements and details connected were Louis Brown. Lawrence Giubbini and E. Lastreto. At the end of the term all members of the class universely acknowledged that the year had been most successful in every respect.ST.

We may have just hopes for a great future St. Ignatius that will rival any of the large universities on the Coast if such a proportionate increase continues for the next few years. From these new men must come the future standing of the college. The burden rests with them whether St. Ignatius will keep up the name it has established in all curricular activities or whether it will merely drift into mediocrity. Upon the shoulders of these new men will rest the upholding of records established in former years by men who have striven with all their energies to gain the name that is held by St. Ignatius at present. It has taken many years for St. Ignatius to attain the heights that it once held before the great catastrophe of 1906. Now, after years of struggle, we have once more achieved fame, and for the continuance of this we rely entirely upon the youthful members who are increasing in numbers yearly. EVENTS OF THE YEAR On August 16, over one hundred and sixty new students paraded the halls, searching for class rooms and anxiously scanning schedule cards to see if they were going in the right direction or were on the correct floor. It did not take them more than one or two days, however, to accustom themselves to the new environment and get organized. Freshman rules were posted everywhere, and woe to those poor frosh who failed to comply with them! Green and gold beanies and handbooks in hip pockets were in evidence wherever one went. The Ignatian field on August 23, a day dedicated entirely to first year men, was the scene of numerous events. At nine thirty in the morning all the loyal frosh were lined up under the supervision of the high and mighty sophomores and given the program for the day. The first event was a sack race in which ninety members from each class took part. It was won by the sophomores, as was the next number, the three legged Francis I. O'Gara69 ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE race. A tug-o'-war followed, with a team of forty on each end of the rope. The sophomores won this by a narrow margin. The next event, however, belonged to the freshmen. Mounted on human steeds they unbalanced the wary sophs in the jousting contest. Finally, the great event of the day came, the fiag contest. Equal numbers from each side came into a hand to hand combat for the possession of the pennant. After long hours of bitter struggle which completely demolished the little remaining clothes of the contestants, the frosh emerged victorious. Sad to relate, however, the two victories were not enough to overcome the lead established by the sophomores, and as a result the pangs of defeat stung bitterly into the hearts of the freshmen. On the evening of the twenty-fifth, all members of the class of '32 experienced their first real collegiate dance. Green and gold beanies were forgotten and even bitter thoughts against their vanquishers were put aside as the latter acted as hosts for the evening. It was considered a huge social success and a fitting climax to a strenuous week. Every freshman admitted that he had a good time. As is usually the case, it took but a few days to get acquainted, so after thoughts of the festivities of the previous week began to calm down a more serious matter presented itself. The first business to arise was the election of olficers for the term. Francis B. O'Gara was elected president, Henry Rittore, secretary. Nicholas Beidov, sergeant-at-arms, and Jack Malone)' and "Moco” Woodworth were chosen to represent the class. After this was completed, numerous enterprising young freshmen volunteered to become class managers of various sports, hoping that some day the)' will work up to the senior positions.70 The IGNATIAN ' 19?9 .............. All was quiet and peaceful for awhile until the fatal evening of the Stanford Debate, when, as the freshmen aptly put it, "the worm turned," and the sophs had one put over on them, as the expression goes. While everyone was crowded in the Auditorium listening to the arguments put forth by the firm supporters of Alfred Smith and Herbert Hoover, a group of these ambitious lads took it upon themselves to drape the flag pole with a green and gold pennant as an emblem of their class. They did so, and left an old black rag at half mast in remembrance of the sophomores who once defeated them. Although this victory was actually very short-lived in itself, morally it remained as an inspiration for months to come. Towards the end of November the frosh convened for a banquet at the Hotel Stewart. The evening was voted a great success, the principal speakers being Ernie Loustau and Francis O'Gara. Entertainment was afforded by talented members of the class. Vocal and musical selections were tendered by Messrs. J. O'Sullivan, Percy Crecde and Edward Murphy. The committee in charge of this was composed of Messrs. Francis O'Gara, Joseph McCormack, W. Murphy, James Murphy, Jack Maloney and Percy Creedc. The climax of the year came with the "Freshman Fandango." Plans were made Several months in advance for this auspicious occasion which has been written down in the traditions of the college since we entered the new building. The dance was given at the Lakeside Country Club on Saturday evening, April 6th. The men in charge of the entertainment were to be congratulated for the fine manner in which they conducted the affair. The programs were very artistically decorated and many novelties wereST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 71 introduced during the course of the evening to give it a touch of the unusual. The committee caking charge of the arrangements consisted of Francis O'Gara. Joseph McCormack, Percy Creede, J. Sullivan and Alan Grant. There were numerous other activities during the semesters, which, although not of a social type, were nevertheless a great credit to the class. The freshman basketball team made a fine record for itself under the able coaching of Jack Pairidge. Much praise is due the class for the very clever presentation of "The Hottentot," under the fine directing of Mr. James Gill. This was a freshman play with an entire freshman cast. Those members who attempted to achieve thespian fame were Barny Carr, Marcel Smith, Richard Costello, E. Lucy, Gerald Shannon, L. Bliner and Herb Buckley. After scanning the calendar of the freshmen class for the year, one cannot but wonder at the marvelous enthusiasm shown by these men in all school events. Such activity in the class of 32 is most surely indicative of their future success in social and scholastic functions in the years of college life that remain ahead of them. There are five courses open to freshmen at present: Unrestricted, Pre-Legal, Pre-Medical, Pre-Engineering and Commerce and Finance.72 FresLmam Commerce and Finance OFFICERS E. Cahili. T.

Heretofore the activities were managed almost entirely by the faculty. But by the establishment of this new form of carrying on the affairs of the student body, the students have been given a voice in the handling of most of the activities that concern them. Previously, the matter of scheduling debates, the method of choosing the speakers and the subjects of debate were in the hands of the faculty, or a representative who was usually a member of the faculty. Likewise, matters of discipline were also in the hands of the faculty, the students having no right to suggest penalty or punishment for violating the rules of conduct. But with the introduction of student self-government, these matters are changed to a great extent. The students have the power now to manage most of the affairs on the college calendar that concern them, the faculty giving their approval or disapproval after the events have been planned by the students. Most important of the innovations of the new system of government is the creation of the Executive Committee. Ir is composed of the Student-Body officers, the presidents of the four under-graduate classes, and two representatives of the four under-graduateST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 77 Rock Devine classes, elected annually by (heir respective classes. The Executive Committee is the supreme legislative body. The authority of the sub committees is understood to rest ultimately in this body. The next in importance and power is the General Activities Sub-Committee. This Committee is appointed by the Chairman of the Executive Committee, with the approval of the members of this Committee. It consists of three or more students from the three upper classes, with the Vice-President of the college. It must keep a calendar of all extra-curricular events taking place on the college property or given under the auspices of the college. Its sanction is necessary for all functions of any organized group of students. Another committee, the Game Sub-Committee, manages the rooting sections, arranges stunts and events of a similar nature. It is evident that these committees have much of the power that was formerly exercised by representatives of the faculty. But by the granting of student government, many privileges have been given the students which were previously not enjoyed by them. Aside from the power given to the students by the creation of these committees, they have a representation on three new Councils. These Councils, known as the Publications. Forensics, and Dramatics Councils, supervise the interests of the college in regard to publicity, inter-collegiate and intra-mural debates and speaking contests, the production of plays and matters along these lines that come under their jurisdiction. Aside78 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 Mellon Sullivan from the students of (he various activities on these Councils, there are also faculty representatives. Representation on these Councils has given the students, through their representatives, a great deal of influence, especially as regards forensic activities. Formerly, the method of selecting the various speakers for the public speaking contests, the arrangement of inter-collegiate debates, and other details, were handled by the faculty entirely. But the student representative on this Council has been empowered to carry on many of the negotiations necessary for the scheduling of the debates with other colleges, and has a voice in the selection of subjects for debate. Two new boards have been formulated for the purpose of directing student conduct and athletic activities. They are supreme in their own fields, choose their own officers, and formulate their own by-laws. These boards are known as: The Board of Student Control, and the Board of Athletic Control. The Board of Student Control is composed of the president of the Student-Body and two senior students and two junior students chosen by the Executive Committee. The powers of the Board of Student Control are as follows: (1) Enforcement of faculty regulations insofar as delegated by the president of St. Ignatius College, as affecting the name and reputation of the College. (2) Interpretation and enforcement of the Constitution and its General By-Laws. The board shall preserve the original text of the Constitution and shall publish it in some form at the beginning of each college year. (3) Enforcement of student regulations expressed or implied.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 79 Bussman O'Marie (•1) Suggestion of regulations to the executive committee. The Board of Athletic Control shall be composed of three alumni appointed tricnnially by the president of the alumni association; three faculty representatives appointed by the president of St. Ignatius College; three student representatives who shall be: The president of the Studeni-Bouy, the president of the student association of the schools, and an upper division student of the Division of Liberal Arts, elected annually by the Executive Committee. The Board of Athletic Control fosters, encourages, and exerts complete control over all athletic activities of St. Ignatius College and all matters immediately associated with it. The election of officers likewise is the privilege of the students. The president, vice-president, and secretary of the Student-Body are chosen annually by the students by secret ballot, on nominations made and seconded at a general meeting held on the Monday preceding the election. The treasurer is elected by the Executive Committee on the Tuesday following the election of the president. The varsity yell leader likewise is elected by the members of the Student-Body by80 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 secret ballot, on nominations made and seconded at a general meeting of the Student Association. Elections are carried by a majority of the votes cast for the particular office. The term of office for all officers shall Ik one year from Commencement or immediately upon election if subsequently chosen, to Commencement. The Board of Student Control shall supervise all elections of the Student-Body. No member of that board running for another office may participate in the supervision of an election at which he is a candidate. The right of recall also has been given to the students. Any elected officer or any member of the Executive Committee or a sub committee is subject to recall by the presentation of a petition signed by ten percent of the students. The petition must first be presented to the Board of Student Control. Then with recommendations, is referred to a vote by secret ballot of the members of the Student-Body. A two-thirds majority of the votes cast is sufficient for the recall. The Student-Body has likewise the privilege of referendum. A petition signed by ten percent of the members of the Student-Body and presented to the president shall make it incumbent upon the latter to submit to the Student-Body any official act of the Executive Committee, or of its sub-committees, at a meeting of the Student-Body within one week for discussion, and voting, upon the question. A majority of negative votes cast shall be sufficient for a referendum. 81 ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE After a year's trial, the organizations created by the new system of student self-government have functioned very efficiently. The Executive Committee has managed many of the activities which were previously handled by the faculty alone. The sub committees have ably assisted the chief executive body. The councils have aided in the supervision of publications, forensics and dramatics. The Board of Student Control has succeeded in regulating the conduct of the students, to a great extent. The Board of Athletic Control has moderated athletics throughout the term, and the cooperation of the Student-Body has greatly assisted the various committees, councils and boards in aiding the faculty to complete the schedules of the many activities that have occupied the time of the students in all the classes. Without doubt, ;f the cooperation of the students continues as enthusiastically as it has begun, the system of student government will succeed at St. Ignatius just as it has at most of the colleges that have adopted it.82 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 Executive Committees ARTS AND SCIENCE Ricardo J.

'31 A tsociale Fuiilor Ftiitor-in-Cbief llu finest Manager I lie 1929 Ign iian i AN annual is supposed to be a complete and unprejudiced chronicle of a scholastic year. It is supposed ro have as its motif, its unifying principle, something intimately connected with the year it records. This 1929 IGNATIAN was planned in accordance with these purposes. The editor and his staff determined at the outset to give each organization in the school, and every activity, scholastic or extra-curricular, its due and proportionate representation in the book. As there are more organizations and more activities this year than last, it was immediately apparent that the book would have to be enlarged. That's why it's ninety pages larger. As the year has been one of unprecedented progress, it was decided to adopt the Progress of the Law as a motif. In order to better illustrate this motif, and so keep the journal unified, the four four-color tip-ins were planned. The credit for them goes to Edward McDcvitt, of the Freshman class, whose original paintings they are. The staff hopes that this Ignatian has fulfilled its purpose, and that it will serve in the years to come, not only as a reminder of 1929, but as a modest model for greater and finer year books, published by a greater and even more progressive student body.ST.

IGNATIUS COLLEGE 89 PUBLICITY BUREAU THIS organization, one of the most necessary adjuncts to college activities, has continued to uphold the high standard set during the three previous years of its existence. Its chief function, as usual, has been to keep the local newspapers supplied with detailed information regarding student activities on Ignatian Heights, particularly the events on the athletic calendar. This branch has first call upon the services of the members of this group of activity. To understand the work connected with this bureau, let it be said that for every event taking place exactly five different versions must be written in order to satisfy the needs of the newspapers. Personal visits and telephone conversations arc requisites to the successful completion of their tasks. In addition to this sort of routine activity it is necessary for these men to supply all those desiring copy for season record books with the needed information, which includes scores of all games in which the Gray I;og was contestant together with names of players, coaches, managers, captains, and captains-elect. They must also arrange for the inclusion of schedules of St. Ignatius varsity football and basketball teams in those composite schedules which various organizations publish at the opening of each athletic season. Stories on out-of-town opponents of the Fogmen must be gotten in order that St. Ignatius teams be kept on the front page of the sport news pages. Under the direction of James K. McGee, ’30, these men formed the personnel of the Publicity Bureau: James K. McGee, '30 Edwin Luders, ’32 Edward Sullivan, '32 James Scully, 32 STUDENT HANDBOOK One of the most informing publications e er presented for the use of St. Ignatius students made its appearance at the opening of the fall term in the Student Handbook. This is an assemblage of all the essential information necessary for any student to gain an insight into the workings of the Associated Students Association. It contains the constitution of the Association, the personnel of all the organizations which play an active part in student affairs, and all the college songs and yells, together with the football schedule and other points of interest to the new students. The men responsible for this great improvement were Francis Colligan, ’29, W. B. Spohn, '30, T. McGettigan, '29, and W. Cooley, '29.Above the city's misery and din it stands, a silent messenger of peace To those whose hungry souls—deep dyed with sin—seek from their hurtling fetters blest release; A gushing fountain, all a-brim with joy. for those who over sorrow's pathway trod; Its domed spires rise nobly to the sky- -two pinnacles that point aloft to Cod. Nicholas Barron, Law, '31.92 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 I lie Season e f MOST prominent in student activities this year has been the sustained and solid interest of the Student-Body in dramatics. As a rule. College productions have been things to be suffered with fortitude and silence; this year, on the other hand, the Student-Body and half of San Francisco not only suffered them, but kept clamoring for more—and they were not disappointed. Director J. J. Gill and his assistants, James F. Layden and Richard A. Vaccaro, mapped out a rather pretentious schedule which ranged all the way from a racy’ 'Hottentot” to the dramatic and heavy ' Enemy," and included everything in between. Each production was attended by a capacity house, with the S. R. O. sign greeting the late arrivals. On the whole, this year’s dramatic results have been surprising by their unusually high quality. The work of the individual players has been undoubtedly on a far higher level than formerly, and this is due in great measure to the enthusiasm anti interest which was aroused in the Student-Body by Mr James J. Gill. He stands high in the esteem of those who have worked under him, and has won to himself the utmost confidence of the Players. It is to him that the greater part of the tremendous advance in dramatics at St. Ignatius is due. Through his efforts this year, and the success with which they have been attended, the College looks forward to an entirely new era in this field of activity. With him the College Players hope to perpetuate the reputation which through him they have won to themselves during the past year. An indication of what was to follow was given Ignatian fans when they trekked up to the Heights to witness the initial offering of the year, 'White Collars." Instead of the usual gesturing, shouting and what-not, they were treated to a performance, professional in every way and the more pleasing because of the element of surprise afforded by such a genuinely good play. George C. Watren, dramatic critic of note, reviewed the play and confirmed the pleasant hopes of the fans when he said that the College Players made "an auspicious beginning of their dramatic year." His words were well borne out by the productions which followed. "The Copperhead," by Augustus Thomas, was the second effort of the College Players and, much to the surprise of the skeptics, was every bit as good and just as much a success as "White Collars." After the first night's run, "The Copperhead" was assured of success by the enthusiastic and spontaneous comment which followed. James J. KavdenST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 93 With "The Copperhead,'' Ignatian fans began to realize that the College Flayers were establishing themselves as favorites in the heart of drama-loving San Francisco. With "The Hottentot" the dramatics of the Fall semester came to a close. The Freshmen presented this play under the auspices of the College Players and they succeeded in producing a commendable play, giving promise of bigger things when they graduated to the Players. From this play the more promising were given parts in productions later presented by the College players. The first performance of the Spring season was the mystery thriller, "The Rear Car." Thanks to the reputation which they had already established, and to the "spooky" posters which appeared all over the College. "The Rear Car” packed them all in, again running an extra performance. It was during the run of this play that the splendid work of the stage crew came in for its merited meed of praise. Throughout the year the work of this crew had been of the highest calibre, but it took the unusual stage effects required in the production of "The Rear Car" to call attention to their efforts. It was fast work and no bungling; and precisely the smooth running of these effects called attention to the fact that a mighty efficient stage crew had been developed and was on the job. This conviction was strengthened, too, during the Lenten offering, "The Upper Room.” by Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson. This play, too, proved extremely popular, and continued to attract large audiences, running over the scheduled time. "The Upper Room" provided the most unusual and beautiful stage setting of all College productions. A beautiful and striking prologue and splendid scenic effects were some of the features of this production. Bringing the year to a close was The Enemy"—the "big shot" of the season. Running through eight performances, no effort was spared to make this play the climax of an epochal year in Ignatian dramatics. It was "The Enemy" which brought the College before the public eye, and definitely established the Ignatian College Flayers as a dramatic group equal to any college players in the country. No little credit is due, and reviews of the play would not be complete, without mentioning the work of the orchestra throughout the season. Each performance saw appropriate selections rendered with original scoring of old favorites, a feature which added not a little to the attractiveness of the programs. Kichaku A.

"The Copperhead," second of the productions of the College Players, scored a decisive hit, and, like its predecessor, ran for an extra performance. The drama, presented in the Little Theater under the direction of James J. Gill, was pronounced one of the outstanding productions of the College year. In this play, Arthur Goldstein and Frcdeiica Nestor, two outstanding lights of the College year, made their debut, and established themselves in the front rank of the College Players.Esther Cameron made her debut on the Little Theatre boards in the role of Mrs. Manning in the "Copperhead,” a part which fitted her admirably, and to which she brought a charm all her own. Madeline Cameron's first appearance before Ignatian Little Theatre fans saw her playing Grandma Per ley in the "Copperhead," a part of peculiar difficulty. Miss Cameron, however, played the part very well indeed, and was very well received. Wallace Cameron, brother of the two young ladies just mentioned, is a prime favorite with Ignatian fans. He established himself with them first as cousin in "White Collars,” and then as Bruce in "The Enemy." His Cousin Henry was one of the most realistic and convincing pieces of the season. Bernard Carr was kept busy in College productions during the past year. From the part of Larry Crawford in the Freshman play, "The Hottentot," he entered the ranks of the College Players as Kirk Allen in the "Rear Car," and then gave a remarkable-portrayal of Carl Behrend. the young playwright in the Enemy."98 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 THE COLLEGE PLAYERS ' ST.

The College Players presented the Freshman Division in this, the last play of the Fall semester. Considering that for most of the players, this was their first appearance on the stage, the Frosh acquitted themselves very creditably, indeed. Several of those who made their initial bow in "The Hottentot" returned to appear in later presentations of the Players. Director James Gill chose this cast wisely, and thanks to him, there are now ranked among the Players one or two of these who promise to become really finished artists under his tutelage.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 99 Jack Cullen played the part of John, the Beloved Disciple, in the "Upper Room." His performance was smooth and reverential throughout. Both in feature and in voice, Jack was admirably cast, and played cjuite well in this, his first appearance. Helen Daley made her initial appearance as Mrs. Bates in the "Copperhead," and played the part very intelligently. Her sincerity added greatly to the calibre of her performance. Daniel Deasy, a veteran, gave a dramatic interpretation of Sam Carter, the messenger in the "Copperhead." His appearance came at the climax of the play, and the dolorous tones in which he delivered his message certainly helped the effectiveness of that climax. Joseph Dondero, cast as Longinus the centurion in the "Upper Room," gave a creditable performance in his first appearance on the stage. While it may not seem "the thing to do," yet mention must be made of the remarkable resemblance he bore to the accepted notion of what Roman centurions looked like.100 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 THE COLLEGE PLAYERS ' ST.

Rose, was chosen by Director James J. Gill as the initial production of the College Players for the Spring semester. The play is well-known, and consequently there was a large attendance at each performance. The play was received very well, and the thrills and chills of that last act will linger in the memories of those who attended. The action was fast from the opening scene, and the players went through without a slip-up. Arthur Goldstein and Frederica Nestor, both of whom had distinguished themselves in "The Copperhead," returned to score again even more than they had in that production. Kathleen Sherman, star of "White Collars," and George Duffy, as Titus, both added greatly to the comedy of the piece.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 101 Iris Dorso gave Ignacian fans a very inreresting picture of a mother of the "G. M. C." when she played Mrs. Thayer in "White Collars.” She made Mrs. Thayer live, and won the sympathy of the audience for her. Miss Dorso is to be commended for Iter promising debut. George Duffy, large and black, scored a hit as the porter in the Rear Car.” His rabbits-foot rubbing caused almost as much laughter as the rolling and blinking of his eyes. George did very well indeed, and in him, the Players are sure of a "blackface” of no mean ability. Arthur Goldstein is unquestionably the "find” of the entire season. As Milt Shanks in the "Copperhead," he rose to heights seldom achieved by amateurs; as Sheridan Scott in the "Rear Car," he gave an equally splendid performance, and as Dr. Arndt in "The Enemy," he climaxed a brilliant season, with a perfect performance. Allan Grant, one of the Freshmen presented by the College Players in the "Hottentot," was another who made his debut this year. He gave a creditable performance, and will bear watching.102 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 THE COLLEGE PLAYERS ' ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE Present ”THE UPPER ROOM” ST.

This sacred drama, from the pen of Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson, was the College Players' contribution to the theater of the Lenten season. Director James Gill chose this drama as one peculiarly adapted to presentation in the Little Theater. This was unquestionably the most artistic production of the entire year, and all who saw the play were deeply impressed by the beauty and realism with which it unfolded the drama of the Passion. The effect of the play was heightened by the musical background. ’Stabat Mater," the "Ave Marie" and the "Vexilla Regis” being the most noteworthy.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 103 Gabriellc Greefkens made a very’ effective "Sally Van Luyn” in "White Collars," and her success in this part was overshadowed only by her portrayal of The Virgin Mary in "The Upper Room." Though each part was quite at opposites with the other, Miss Greefkens fitted quite nicely into each. Jay Hale was manly and pleasant looking as "William Van Luyn" in White Collars." Though this was his first appearance on the Little Theatre stage, he gave a distinctly likeable impersonation of the young millionaire hero. Phyllis Haley appeared for the first time in the role of "Roxie" in "The Rear Car.” The part was rather difficult, but Miss Haley gave an altogether creditable performance, and did much to intensify the suspense element of the play. Ruth Halpin was very engaging as "Mrs. Ollic Gilford" in The Hottentot, the winter production of the Freshman division, and although the part required great skill, her interpretation left nothing to be desired.104 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 THE COLLEGE PLAYERS ' ST.

"The Enemy," a drama in four acts, by Channing Pollock, was chosen by Director James J. Gill as the closing production of the Dramatic season. No effort, no expense was spared to assure the success of this production. Seven performances of "The Enemy" were given, each of which was eminently successful. The play offers an unusual opportunity for emotional and strong acting, and in this connection, the work of Miss Nestor and of Messrs. Cameron and Goldstein merits particular mention. Martial airs, rendered by the College orchestra, provided a fitting musical setting for the production, the climax of a truly great year in Ignatian dramatics.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 105 Helen Hogan entered the College Players in their big shot,' "The Enemy," and proved a distinctly pleasant surprise with her "Baruska.” She enjoyed playing the part, and was very well received by the audience. She is a welcome addition to the College Players. Lawrence Horgan made his first appearance as Captain Hardy in "The Copperhead." a slow-moving part, and one which he played quite well. His second effort was the part of John Blake in "The Rear Car," and here, too, he showed to good advantage. Francis Kerner was introduced to Ignatian fans as Joey in "The Copperhead." So exceptional was his work that he was cast again as Samuel in The Upper Room." His portrayal of youthful roles was one of the outstanding features of the season. Val King played the part of Gillespie in "The Copperhead," and that of Achaz in "The Upper Room." Both were character roles and were well done. Y v; rf-h 106 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 Bernard Lapachct is another who made his debut in "The Copperhead." He played "Doctor Randall," and certainly looked the part of the regularly jilted suitor. I.a Prelc Lindsay, as Mrs Chadwick in "The Hottentot," made a very good impression as a vivacious and entertaining society woman. Her unobtrusive dignity makes her a welcome addition to the Players. Thomas List needed but one appearance as (he Doctor in "The Upper Room" to convince the director that he was just the man to play Fritz Winklemann in "The Enemy." Henrietta Lombardi played the role of Veronica in "The Upper Room.” and though she appeared only for the latter part of the play, she had a graceful presence.107 ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE Dorothy London played the part of Sue Perley in "The Copperhead." Her portrayal was lively and vivacious, and won her favorable notice. Emmett Lucey, another of the freshmen presented in The Hottentot," made a very realistic Ollie Gilford, and in considering that this was his first appearance on the Little Theater stage, his performance was quite good. Lloyd Luckmann gave a very convincing portrayal of the family-head of a middle-class household in "White Collars." His "Mr. Thayer” was well done, and won for him the sympathy of the audience. Edwin Luders did a really clever bit as Olson in the Freshman presentation. The Hottentot.” Each time he came onto the stage, he drew favorable criticism and was well applauded.The IGNATIAN ' 1929 108 It seems that the Freshmen production, 'The Hottentot,” discovered several young actors of promise. Among these was Milton McGreevy, who played the part of Reggie Townesly. Mary McQuaid lent a pleasing personality to the Freshman vehicle, "The Hottentot.' in which she played the heroine, the young lady in whose colors the hero speeds down the "home stretch” astride the fleet-footed "Hottentot." Judas, in "The Upper Room." is a part that calls for considerably more than a mere flash of artistic temperament, but it may be said that Edward Murphy played it effectively and with ease. Frederica Nestor brought a technique all her own to the ranks of the College Players. As the Heroine, Miss Nestor stoied heavily in each of the three plays in which she appeared. "The Copperhead," "The Rear Car." and "The Enemy" were all the better because of her presence in their casts.109 ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE Daniel O'Brien helped both the comic and dramatic elements of "White Collars" by his able impersonation of Tom Gibney, a part that required much broad humor and not a little knocking about on the stage. "The Copperhead" provided several parts that created suspense and tensity. Of these much may be said, especially that of "Brother Andrews," which gave Robert Orr an opportunity to score in this difficult role. Though of an unusually difficult nature, the part of Brother Andrews was well sustained to the end. Joseph Rock as "Phillip Manning” in "The Copperhead,” proved himself one of the most capable and popular juvenile "leads” of the season. His winning personality and pleasing voice and manner added greatly to his success. Gerald Shannon began acting for the Players in the somewhat trying role of the Butler in "The Hottentot." He played the part so effectively that he was chosen to play Luke Carson in "The Rear Car."110 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 •MIIUMItMIMMmMlltMIIIMMtMMtMtIIIMIIMIIIMIIItMHtMmMI Kathleen Sherman was given two long and difficult roles in "Helen Thayer” and "Norah O’Neil,” the first in the opening production of the season, "White Collars," and the second in "The Rear Car." Both parts were capably handled and received favorable-criticism in local papers. Marcel Smith played the hero in "The Hottentot," and laid a firm grip on the audience in the character of the nervous young man compelled by circumstances to ride to victory on the derby winner to win the hand and heart of the bright-eyed little ingenue. Character parts are often the backbone of a play. Robert Taylor, with two of these, the first being "Lem Tollard” in "The Copperhead," and the other "Joseph of Arima-thea" in "The Upper Room," contributed strong material to the performance. Malcolm Wilmes acted creditably in several of the presentations. He first appeared as the heavy in the mysterious "Rear Car," and waved the banner of College Players in the subsequent productions in a manner worthy of a better cause, if such there be.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 111 La Rue Marquis made a very pretty lead in "White Collars" as the daughter of the Thayers. She was well cast as "Joan," and her performance was pleasant and smooth. Mary McCarthy played "Magdalene" in "The Upper Room," the Lenten offering of the College Flayers. This was her first appearance at St. Ignatius, and she gave an intelligent and sympathetic interpretation of the Great Penitent. Robert O’Neill made the greatest hit of his young life as Kurt, the little boy in "The Enemy." Robert, be it said, is not yet a collegian, but after his remarkable playing in "The Enemy," Robert will one day be a College Player of prominence. Robert O'Neili.112 The IGNAT1AN ' 1929 Dillon Dreschler Williams Lafferty Johnson Levin Brady Girard DRAMATICS PERSONNEL THE successful Dramatics season which the College Players of St. Ignatius have enjoyed is due in no small measure to the hard and efficient work of the Personnel. At each rehearsal, the electricians, prop men, stage manager, and their assistants were kept every bit as bus) as the players in executing the many trying details which always accompany a successful production. They put in far more time on tHe productions than did the players; they worked smoothly and intelligently; no job " was too big or too insignificant for their best efforts, and the College Players are grateful to them for the unselfishness with which they worked to make every production a success.M Dev»rr Forensics114 itlUMIIIMMItMIttMIIH himmimmiim The IGNATIAN ' 1929 f Season [ ' HI: Forensics season just finished lias been one of the best in the history of the college. Through the efforts of Manager William B. Spohn, relations were renewed with Stanford, with whom two debates, one in the Fall, and one in the Spring semesters were held. Negotiations were opened with Northwestern, but due to an error in their schedule, the proposed debate did not materialize. Intramural forensics occupied the greater part of the season, with two oratorial contests and one Gold Medal Intramural debate. During the progress of these contests much promising talent Wiiiiam B si oiin waS bought to light. Manager Spohn is to be commended particularly for the interest in forensics which he aroused and maintained in the lower division. In this way he developed speakers who will next year undoubtedly be on the role of varsity debaters. A unique feature of the '2S-'29 season was the non-varsity debate between members of the Philorthian Society of the University of California. This is the first time that women have participated in a St. Ignatius debate. In all, the major feature of the season was the success of Spohn's efforts to develop varsity debating material for future years. This is one of the finest accomplishments which marked his direction of Ignation forensics, and it is sincerely hoped that this policy will continue in operation in future years.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 115 Yo M. L Sullivan Memorial Contest i THE Ignatian Council of the Young Men’s Institute presented a contest in Oratory in honor of the memory of their late president, Jeri-miah F. Sullivan. The participants were chosen, one student from each of the three Catholic Universities, St. Ignatius, Santa Clara and St. Mary’s. This contest was held on the evening of the Twenty-seventh of November at the Young Men's Institute Hall. Preceding the opening speech, introductory remarks were made by David I. Mahoney, president of the Ignatian Council. W. A. Kelly, chairman of the evening, made an address eulogizing Judge Sullivan, praising him as a man, judge, and executive. The subject for this, the first contest, was "The Catholic American in Public Life.” John A. O'Kane was the Ignatian entry and his competitors were T. P. Ryan, Santa Clara, senior, and John L. Mull any, of St. Mary's College. John A. O'Kane is the possessor of the lirst award of this Oratorical Contest. The decision of the judges was unanimous in favor of the St. Ignatius senior. O'Kane traced the career of the Catholic American, who enters public life, and stressed the oneness of the spirit of Catholicity with the spirit of Americanism. He presented the Catholic background of America and gave the Catholic attitude toward public affairs. J. Mullany, the St. Mary's contestant, sticssed many of the same points, which were afterward discussed by O'Kane. Ryan, of Santa Clara, used a theme which discussed the Catholic attitude in the campaign for President just past. Judge Harold Louderback made the presentation to O'Kane and he was assisted in his decision by Hon. W. H. Langdon, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of California; Hon. George A. Sturdevant, District Court of Appeal; Hon. Walter Perry Johnson, and Franklin A. Griffin of the Superior Court of San Francisco. John A. O'Kanf.i mu •••mi mi ••••in mii ■ •• ••••••■ IMIIIMII The IGNATIAN ' 1929 116 Stanford Debate i TAKING advantage of the unusual and unprecedented interest in the last Presidential campaign, Saint Ignatius College and Stanford University renewed Forensic relations with a debate on the ultra-timely question. Resolved: that a Democratic Administration under Govcrnbr Alfred H. Smith should succeed the present Administration." The debate was a split-team, no decision affair wi:h Angel. Stanford '30. pairing with Spohn, St. Ignatius '30, on the affirmative. Opposed to them were Shaw, Stanford '30, and Colligan. St. Ignatius '29. Thanks to the timeliness of the question, and to the fact that the debate was held on the night before election, the College Auditorium was crowded to overflowing. As a matter of fact, the crowd that attended this debate was the largest ever to attend any Forsensic activity on the Heights. Before this record-breaking crowd, both teams displayed a forensic "finesse,” spiced with humor, that won praise for the individual debaters as well as for their respective Colleges. Spohn, first affirmative, with a gift for invective, indicted the Republican party for failure to live up ro its campaign promises, concluding from this that the Republican Administration was untrustworthy, and should be succeeded by a Democratic Administration under Governor Alfred F. Smith, whose record has proven him to be fully worthy of trust. Colligan, second negative, called attention to the fact that with the predominance of economic factors in the United States today, Governor Smith's "unsound political philosophy”—State Socialism rendered him incapable of successfully fulfilling the office of President. So high was the calibre of the discussion that Mr. William A. O’Brien, A.B., LL.B., chairman of the evening, expressed the sentiment of all when he announced these four gentlemen the ablest debaters to represent either Stanford or St. Ignatius in many years. Francis X. Ki-hnfkST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 117 Second Stanford Debate On Monday evening, April 22, the second of the Stanford-St. Ignatius debates was held in the Little Theater at St. Ignatius College. The question was one of purely academic interest, "Resolved, that foreign criticism of American culture, ideals, and characteristics is justified.” Francis Kerner and Valentine King, St. Ignatius, ‘29, maintained the affirmative, while George Emory Bodle, Stanford. ‘29, and Irving Rosenblatt, Stanford, '30, upheld the negative side of the question. The attendance was large, as had been that at the preceding St. Ignatius-Stanford tilt, held in the Fall semester. Since this debate, too, was a non-decision contest, the opinion of the audience was divided as to the issue of the discussion. Kerner, first affirmative, defined and restricted the meaning of the term, "culture.” and then proceeded ro show that American ideals and the expression of them in American characteristics, do justify the criticism which they receive. His talk, conducted in a lightly humorous vein, kept the audience constantly entertained. King, second affirmative, discussed “culture," and stressed the lack of any real culture in America, as shown by the ideal of most American colleges, which fill their students with facts but utterly neglected the formative element which is essential to true culture. The Stanford case was based chiefly on a justification of the philosophy which lies behind American ideals and characteristics. On the whole, the debate proved to be quite interesting, and maintained the high calibre of the Fall debate. Valentine Kino 118 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 IMUmlllMMIHItlMlltlllHMIllMlIUllimtlMIHMlMMIIIMiMMIII Oratorical Contest i A BRILLIANT array of talented young speakers was presented when the annual contest in oratory was held Friday evening, February 15, in the College Little Theatre. The contest marked the beginning of what was probably the most extensive program of forensic activities at Saint Ignatius College. Truly both faculty and alumni can look to the coming years with hope and promise of the permanacy of Ignatian prowess in this branch of activities. Competition, according to the plan of 1927, was restricted to the members of the three upper classes, though six of the eight contestants were representatives of the sophomore class. Frank Silva, '31, presented a clever encomium of the late Cardinal Mercier in the "Voice of Belgium.” His delivery and composition won for him the decision of the judges which carried with it a gold medal, gift of the Ignatian Council No. 35, Y. M. I. Francis J. Colligan, ‘29, won a close second place with an effective picture of the World at the Crossways.” Lloyd Luckmann, ‘31, and T. R. Villanueva, ‘31. were deemed by the judges as equal in merit for third place in this contest. “The Catholic Emancipator,” the subject chosen by Luckmann, was a panygeric on the 200th anniversary of Edmund Burke. Ihe feeling and force that were added to the presentation of the excellent plea for the "Redeeming of America’s Promise," by Villanueva is worthy of special commendation. Of the other contestants, James S. De-Martini, ‘31, is entitled to special mention for the masterful manner in which he presented his eulogy of Father Ruppert, S. J. Cyril Bryner, ‘31, gave an exposition of the forces of Bolshevism. Joseph Dondero, ‘31, extolled world peace. J. Coleman, ‘29, criticized the expediency of the present day criminal courts. H. C. Haley, '27, held the chair. Hon. D. C. Deasy, Hon. T. I. Fitzpatrick, and Hon. L. T. Jacks were the gentlemen who kindly consented to act as judges. Fkank SilvaST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 119 Calif or:ma Phil ort hi an Society Dehate THE popular non-varsity debate of the season was contested with the women’s debating society of the University of California. Philorthians, Monday evening, April 15. The debate was in answer to a challenge by the society for a meet at either college under any system of rules. California was the place chosen. A two-man team, composed of Louis Ferrari, ’32. and Vincent Lafferty, '31, represented St. Ignatius in a question, Resolved: "That the temporary insanity law and plea be abolished in criminal cases." They presented their case in their usual characteristic manner, combining "the useful with the pleasant." Lafferty stressed the psychological aspects of the case by pointing out that, although it is true Francis J. that the emotions are great factors in determining the nature of conduct and are much more influential in determining the extent of guilt in criminal cases, yet it is a psychological fact that crime, as such, can never be attributable always to an undue play of the emotions. The very nature and degree of crime itself, he said, depends upon the degree to which the intellect has assenred to the act. Ferrari amused the audience with very appropriate examples of the ridiculous lengths to which these appeals have been carried. He showed that from the loose interpretation of the term insanity, fully ninety-five per cent of the population of the United States arc slightly infirmed mentally. The debate was a no-decision contest ind a fortunate event in view of the conviction which marked the presentation of arguments on both sides. f i FROSH DEBATE An innovation in the relations between the Extension Division and the school of Liberal Arts was made by way of a debate held between the forensic classes of each. The question was. Resolved: "That the United States should enter the World Court under the Root Flan.” The discussion was surprisingly complete and both sides were well applauded for the presentation of their respective cases. This debate provided a pleasant evening in view of the unexpected quality of the discussion.120 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 McKinley C fold Medal Debate rHIS outstanding event of intra-mural forensic activities was held on Friday evening. March 23, in the College Auditorium. The contest this year was opened to both divisions of the classes, but due to the withdrawal of Frank Colligan, '29, the lower debating group held all of the six places in the contest. Four of the contestants were members of the Sophomore class and two representatives from the McKinley debate of last year. Messrs. Francis O'Gara, '32, James DcMartini. '31, and Frank Silva presented the proof of the Affirmative "That the Policy of the Federal Reserve Board in Curbing Stork Market Speculation Is Justified.” Upholding the negative side of this question was Thomas Kelleher, '31, Louis Ferrari, '32, and Vincent Lafferty, 31. These men based their contention that the Federal Reserve Board was working an irremediable harm on most every form of credit and business. They were awarded the decision. It was not the contention of the negative speakers that the purpose of the Federal Reserve was wrong, but that the method employed in curbing stock market speculation was unjustified. The statements of the negative by their second and third speakers were sound and apparent based on economic laws and indisputable facts. The unjustifiable encroachment on all other forms of credit as well as that of the traders was a salient feature of the attack of the winners. The affirmative side was complemented by the individual success of its speakers. Frank J. Silva was awarded the gold medal, gift of Hon. Benjamin E. McKinley, '93. as the most finished speaker. His topic, poise and ease made him stand out from among the others. L. Ferrari, J. De-Martini and F. Kelleher were first presented bv the judges as equal for second merit. After deliberation they decided the honor rightly Louis Ferrari's. Edward McQuadc, '28, acted as chairman of the evening. The judges who served were, Messrs. J. A. Duffy, V. C. Sether. and A. Donald McQuade. Fkank Silva122 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 The Attitude 1 owarJs Science During the Ages i i i ALTHOUGH the primitive man s speculation upon life and its phenomena was very simple, nevertheless this empirical folk-knowledge that comes down to us at the present day has continually influenced scientific research. Many of the modern problems which science is now debating were known to the aborigines. Since Babylon has been considered the earliest home of human civilization, we must seek our sources there. At the time in which "oriental wisdom” played such an important role, men were more or less attempting to defend themselves against nature rather than trying to conquer it. The various violences of the physical universe were the sources of natural superstitions to mankind. The only method of overpowering these supernatural fears was by opposing them with the same weapons, and, as a result of this, magic and sorcery ran rampant. Many of these customs come right down to the twentieth century. Among the northern people and also many of the uncivilized tribes of today, totemism and animal worship still prevail. Even in certain parts of Egypt the sacrificing of sacred animals to natural deities remains as a vestige of ancient civilization. The first nation to attempt to reduce these individual facts of science, accumulated by the Babylonians and Egyptians to a consistently realized conception of nature, was Greece. This famous people of classical renown fostered all methods of research. After the early Ionian philosophers put forth their hydrozoic theory, innumerable other systems for explaining the universe arose. It would be useless to quote the various philosophers and philosophical schools that were prevalent, but the main thing that the world owes to Greece is those great advances made in the scientific line which were a basis for all further speculation. The first set back that science received came from the Sophists. This school of subjectivity claimed that "man is the measure of all things" consequently, what could be the use of theorizing upon various problems from an objective viewpoint if all such theories were to be regarded as true? It looked as if the very soul had dropped out of the idea of advancement for a while, until the advent of two men to whom we are indebted for the Greek intellectual redemption—Socrates and his disciple, Plato. To these men we owe the foundation of biological systematization. After the school of Plato and the followers of the Socratic concept began to decline, Aristotle, the greatest biologist of antiquity, rose to fame. We find enunciated in his works for the first time a really complete theory of evolution. We might justly term himST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 123 the father of biology and embryology because his works upon these subjects, although somewhat crude, were nevertheless facts, and, which is more important, they were an incentive to future experimentalists. The result of Aristotelian specialized forms of biological research produced an abundant harvest, even though the ancient concepts of nature failed to advance. The center of natural research located itself in Alexandria, the purely Greek capitol of Egypt. Here, under the patronage of the refined and generous kings of the Ptolemaic dynasty, there was established one of the greatest institutes of scientific research the w-orld has ever known. Likewise great advancements came about in Rome. Pliny, next to Aristotle, was one of the most influential biologists of classical antiquity. During the centuries that followed his ’‘Natural History” stood in highest importance. Gradually, after Aristotle, scientific research declined. It had already reached its zenith. No thought was given to natural speculation because of the prevalence of political corruption and crime. The next few centuries saw the slow dissolution of the Roman Empire. In the fifth century the World Empire collapsed entirely, owing to the inroads of the Germans. New kingdoms were founded by barbarous nations and all cultural progression ceased. Nothing was done by the scholars in the Eastern Empire to advance science, while, on the other hand, the Byzantine physicians, famed for their great ability, honorably upheld the traditions of the old medical science. However, these ambitious students had received no academic instructions in medicine, and as a result they were in reality merely practitioners and did little to promote surgery or anatomy. We have to pass through the dark middle ages because science was practically at a standstill during this period. Such a thing as independent creative w-ork in any line was unknown. Western culture fell prey to hordes of migratory people; the only bond that held men together was that of religion—Christianity. We next come to that era of intellectual revolution called the Renaissance, when men came to the realization of the necessity of culture. This, of course, started in Italy, who felt herself to be the rightful heir of ancient Rome. The alchemistic experimental science of the Arabs formed the basis of numerous explanations of nature, while great geographical discoveries and newly found classical authors offered new ideas for special investigation in the sphere of natural sciences. The period of the Renaissance was therefore one of restless seeking and collecting results that in later centuries would be utilized for the purpose of making a complete revaluation of the whole conception of nature common to people of antiquity and the middle ages. The seventeenth and eighteenth centuries saw still further advancement, with such men as Cuvier, Linnaeus and Harvey in the field of biology, and such renowned physicists124 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 as Galileo and Sir Isaac Newton. Research was carried on with the aid of the microscope which had then come into existence. Systematization and the formulation of laws in physics and chemistry produced wonderful results. Towards the end of the eighteenth century there was an anti-scientific reaction caused by the French Revolution. On May 8th, 1794, Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, the eminent French chemist, was guillotined on account of his discovery. He was decapitated with the cry, "The Republic needs no scientists.” Just as Prometheus was forced to suffer exile as the result of giving fire to mortal man, so likewise Lavoisier was punished for discovering the chemical action of fire. Nevertheless, this intolerance did not last long, and in the years that followed France produced some of the world's most famous natural scientists. The nineteenth and twentieth centuries have shown marvelous advances which rival in proportion anything mankind has ever known. From mere generalization we have progressed to a high state of specialization. The human race waits with arms outstretched to seize anything that is thrown from the world of science. Perhaps this is good, perhaps not. We must always remember that culture and advancement have run in cycles from the very beginning of civilization. Whether we are on the peak of the present cycle or still ascending remains unknown to us, but from all outward appearances we seem to be merely on the verge of a marvelous future world of scientific investigation. Robkrt T. Orr, Arts, 29-ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 125 Macaulay s “Mirab ran IT is true. He has drawn a perfect portrait. He has painted a rare landscape. He has molded a splendid vase, delightful in line, pleasing in its very perfection, exquisite withal. In a word, Macaulay has written another essay, "Mirabeau.” In this essay there are two pictures, intense and realistic —Bourbon France and Revolutionary France. These two bring a series of scenes to the mind, among them the following. It is midnight. The Tuilleries is aglow with light. Fair maidens, powdered beaux, and haughty matrons stroll about upon the terraces, or wander amongst the lilacs, or rest beside the fragrant fountains on the lawns. Within, all is merriment. A drunken king and his besotted courtiers are very much in evidence. The wine cup, the snuff box, and the pudding dish pass from hand to hand. Minuets vie with lighter dances upon the floor; no worries, no cares are here. The king makes merry, and the court is gay. It is morn. The squire prepares for the hunt. With scarlet waistcoat, tight breeches, and gold-headed crop, he mounts his horse. The brush appears. The bugle blows. The leash is loosed from the hounds. The hunt is on. Away they go! They leap the creek, they spurn the hedge, go dashing headlong across the fields. But what cares he for the serf and the vassal? He is a Chevalier, why should he think of the villein who tills the soil? Let him starve, another will be found to take his place! —The brush! There he goes! Tally ho! Tally ho! Tally ho! It is high noon. The farmer stops his plow. He wipes the futile sweat from his sunburned brow and loosens the straining nag from the heavy, unwieldy implement of toil. He gazes backward, and he sighs. Seventeen furrows has he turned since break of day. Seventeen dreadful, agonizing furrows in the barren soil. He curses as he thinks of the vanity of his life. The Angelus chimes forth from the belfry of the chapel across the way. But the plowman heeds it not—he is steeped in the tar of degradation, rolled in the filthy feathers of despair. His calloused hands know the Sign of the Cross no more; they have shaped themselves to the sickle and the plow.126 The IGNATIAN - 1929 These are the scenes suggested by the first of Macauley's pictures. The second, to my mind, suggests the following: Again it is noon. The Assembly hall is crowded with eager spectators. And what a sickening mob they are! A gory, grimy, ghastly throng! A sweating, sordid, struggling mass of men! A trial, so-called, is in session. A hundred hapless humans are being harangued. Harangued by the men they spat upon but a few short weeks before. There they stand, stripped of their finery, in the midst of that bestial mob that calls itself the Government of France. Now they have no silks or satins, velvets or velours. Now no rings adorn their dainty, effeminate hands. They have lost their very names with their possessions, and are now all called by the common taunt, "Sacros Aristos." They are without riches, without hope, without friends; they are to lose life itself when this mocker)' is ended. Their heads arc destined for the lamp-post, their bodies for the sewer, the rats, or the dogs. They are the nobility of France, poor helpless fools! They scoffed at justice, how can they expect it now? But the crowd leaves the courthouse. The spectators adjourn to the Place Vendome, to the guillotine. Each man wears a ghastly grin on his grimy face. They walk briskly down the boulevard, bantering, chaffing, singing the filthy, ribald songs of the Revolution. They think themselves happy. They think that in satisfying their lust for blood they are satisfying the demands of impartial justice, at the expense of the aristocracy. They think they are patriots; they are but madmen, lower than the beasts of the field. But the place of execution has been reached, and the first fainting victim is about to mount the ’’altar of liberty." He is dragged up the fatal steps to the crude device of slaughter. He is fastened to the board and lowered into place. The "little window" is set in position. There is the sound of something grating, rasping; a shriek from the victim, an expectant sigh from the mob; a sickening thud and tearing of flesh—and the head of the first unfortunate drops into the hands of the boys who wait below. Ninety-nine more nobles of the court of France, princes, princesses, marquises, and all the rest, await their turn, sitting half-stupified with fright and nausea in the little two-wheeled carts of doom. They know that they will all be mangled corpses before the crowd shall cry, "Well done, citoyen, well done!"—that the)' shall be no more when the hungry mob departs. These are the kinds of scenes suggested, not by any means painted, by Macaulay in his essay on Mirabeau. He has described the man, Mirabeau, as none other has ever described him; with that insight, with that plethoric fullness which can only be describedST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 127 as "Macaulayese." Under no circumstances should I advise one to neglect reading this essay, especially if he be afraid of finding nothing but the somber and the sordid therein. The work is light and full of anecdote and incident, just as any other of Macaulay s essays. I can only say, "Read it, if you seek information, instruction, and enjoyment." Daniel C. Deasv, Jr., Arts, ’29. i SUNSET (An Alliterative Exercise) Flushed in his face as he falls from on high, Leaving at evening his post in the sky. Red arc the clouds that the sunset has painted, Golden the gleam on the sea, still untainted. Dusky the darkness drops dismally down, Seeking to shut out the sun ere he drown, Seeking to cut short the light of the day; Shrouding the earth in a mantle of gray. Down falls the sun, till his face shows no more, Riscrh his sister and casts on the shore Beauteous her varying beams (Earth now most wondeiful seems). Fondly we think of Sol bearing the light, Sadly we watch him depart for the night. But the moon—yes, as we see her arise Softly from Ocean's deptns into the skies— Snatches our thoughts and our hearts both away, Making us love the night e'en as the day. Daniel C. Deasy, Jr., Arts, '29.The IGNATIAN ' 1929 128 Flie Talking .Movie andits Il ffect Upon tilueSfage SOME twenty or more years ago, when the silent drama became a very important part of theatrical entertainment. it was regarded as a very great menace to the stage play. Producers of legitimate drama saw in the motion picture the doom of their business. In fact, many of them thought that in a short time the spoken drama would be a thing of the past. And in all truth the motion picture was a menace to the stage play, in many instances disastrous to it. People at once took to the new form of amusement in such great numbers that it was found necessary to convert one theatre after another from a legitimate house into a "movie” to satisfy public demand. However, after a time the public reverted to the stage as a form of entertainment, without deserting the motion picture. It merely found that after all. there was nothing that could quite take the place of the spoken drama. It realized that while the motion picture had many advantages, it really could never duplicate the spoken line nor the interest aroused by seeing real human beings "in person" enacting their roles. In this year of 1929 the stage is confronted with a new problem. The screen "talks." Now the question arises, "Will the talkies' supplant the stage play?” The best plays arc-being produced on the screen, with the finest stage stars featured in them because of their splendidly cultivated voices. Consequently the stars are deserting the stage for the "talkies,” and it would seem anew that the stage is doomed. Nevertheless, this writer does not think that such is the case. The stage is not doomed, for there is nothing in theatrical entertainment, even today, that can supplant it. True, the "talkies" have all the footlight favorites in their productions, but, notwithstanding that, they form nothing more than a very good substitute for the legitimate-stage. There is lacking in them the flesh and blood" presence that is found on the stage and that is the true satisfaction to every devotee of the spoken drama. To such a one the mere fact that a great stage favorite is going to appear in a "talkie" means very-little. He wants the stage and everything that goes with it—and nothing else. That theST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 129 stage today has thousands of such devotees is a certainty. That it will always have them is something that cannot be very well denied. With these two facts in mind it is a foregone conclusion that the stage is by no means doomed. The "talkies" may for a time have a temporary effect on the stage, as their predecessor, the silent drama, did. But it will never be more than temporary. The stage will always exist as the most highly artistic form of entertainment, as it justly and truly is. As such it will always be firmly entrenched in the hearts of all true lovers of the theater.

Sullivan, Arts, ’32.130 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 The N ogled of Latin-American Literature THE legends of Fiji and the folk straits of the Andaman Islands will some day find enterprising professors who will expound their beauty for the edification of scholarly youth. These and a thousand other entertaining but equally valueless subjects may engage the attention of savants whose penchant for the eccentric and zest for making college curriculi ridiculous impel them to explore every corner of our planet. Hence it seems strange, not to say absurd, that these industrious gentlemen who seek the original, the new, the virgin, have not stumbled upon that veritable Golconda of belles leilres—Latin America. The Latin American has two ruling passions, politics and literature. Of these aberrations politics is the least conducive to a prolonged and brilliant career; this explains the over-production of literary copy south of the Rio Grande. The descendants of the Consquistadores have the obsession of the written word; they write about anything and everything. These prolific lit-erateurs have written much that is bad, very bad, and not so much that is brilliant or exquisite. The)' have the virtue of never spawning mediocrities, mediocrity being almost exclusively the affliction of Northern America. A Latin Edgar Guest would have gone in for politics and disappeared at an early age, saving H. L. Mencken much worry. Now we must substantiate our claims and prove that Latin Americans have really produced literary works worthy of the interest of America’s institutions of higher culture. The greatest and most inspired poets of the twentieth century, without regard to race or nationality, are Ruben Dario, Jose Santos Chocano, and Amado Nervo. Dario is a native of stormy Nicaragua, Nervo is a Mexican, Chocano a Peruvian. We do not have to stand alone responsible for this assertion, nor, on the other hand, quote from lengthy tomes of erudite criticism (something we shall do later) ; it is enough to say that in as critical and nationalistic a country as France no modern poet, with the exception of the three named, has provoked such favorable, not to say praiseful comment. In Spain, where the ordinary Spanish American writer is greeted in a somewhat supercilious manner, Dario, Nervo and Chocano have been received with the greatest enthusiasm. No foreign man of letters has ever met with such eloquent approval from Spanish critics since Goethe was discovered by the Peninsulars. And, lest we forget, the great Ruiz de Alarcon, whom Spain places equal to Fuso de Molina, was born in Mexico,ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 131 lived his youth in Mexico, and found expression for his poetic genius in his native land, though his maturer art was given to Spain. But let us dismiss Ruiz de Alarcon from the question ; he has been the subject of too many polemics. The aforementioned poets are not innovators. They follow the accepted forms with but small deviations—hence the comment which their works has aroused has not been caused by their eccentricities, but to their refreshing excellence which gives new vitality to an almost dead art.

McInerney, Arts, '29.132 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 I lie V oice of .Bel glum - C ardinal Mer cier WHEN the passions of men cannot be chained down :o law and principle, the stablest of governments must come to civil strife. When the wrath of nations overleaps the bounds of reasonable action, no power on earth can withhold the resort to arms. There have always been wars, and unless trust and forbearance shall triumph over experience at last, there always will be wars; and there will always lx an appetite for tales of heroism. The earliest literature records them, and so must the last. Heroism is no ordinary thing. It is not a quality found in the character of all men. nor even the majority of men; nor is it a trait manifested by any and every soldier that goes forth into battle. Heroism is rather something extraordinary. a seal of nobility stamped only on the most virile of men, an attribute displayed only by the most remarkable of warriors. It is a poetry of drama in reality instead of in word. Whether it be typified by the Spartans at Thermopylae, or exemplified by Wellington on the field at Waterloo; whether it be pictured by Wolfe or Montcalm on the Plains of Abraham, or blazoned by Pickett in his charge on the heights of Gettysburg, it is always the beautiful impatient gesture of the soul at its highest reach, baring its own breast to a fatal wound in its eagerness to deal a death blow at something it abhors. The world was destined to see a new and even greater valor in 191 1. The flash of an automatic in Serbia ignited the passions of the Old World and marked the beginning of the most stupendous struggle in history'. Nations grappled with nations in deadly combat, bayonet met bayonet with all the savagery of barbarous warfare. Here was the stage all set for feats of heroism. This was the moment for bravery to find new laurels such as it never had worn before. Nations blinded by the craving for conquest, moved by the impulse to obtain even greater national prestige, disregarded treaties’ promises, forgot their pride and honor, committed outrageous offenses against the weak and helpless. Attempting to justify their batfcarous deeds with the cry. Necessity knows no law!" There was Belgium, neutral and defenseless Belgium, overrun by a powerful foe. striving valiantly to check an enemy overwhelmingly her superior. Belgium, smallest of nations, in the clutches of the greatest of the central powers, struggling desperately to free herself from the burden of a yoke so unbearable to her; Belgium, feeble, unprotected, crushed by the most formidable military-force in the world, yet achieving the most outstanding victory of the greatest war in history. There was Belgium, and among her noblest sons stood her foremost hero, a towerST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 133 of strength; a source of consolation to her suffering people. There he stood, scorning all danger, listening only to the voice of his conscience, demanding justice for his outraged countrymen. There he walked, setting the hearts of his fellow men pulsating with the fire of a newborn patriotism, inspiring them in the very face of an omnipotent rival. There he fought, a hero whose only motives were truth and fairness, armed with the crucifix of Christ, commissioned by the Holy Orders of His Church. Is it necessary for me to mention the name of that heroic protector of Belgium, that holy prince of the Roman Catholic Church? Am I compelled to make known to you, Americans, that man who did not leave a stone unturned to preserve those selfsame principles of liberty and equality from which these United States have sprung? Must I reveal to you, fathers, mothers, sisters, who probably had a son, or a brother, or a dear one "over there” fighting to make "the world safe for democracy," to you who may have spent sleepless nights praying for the safekeeping and safe return of that son, or that brother, or that dear one, must I reveal to you the bearer of your prayers to the Blessed Savior, the messenger of your love and affection, the guardian of your boys in battle, their Godspeed towards Heaven in death? What Englishman, what Frenchman docs not revere the name of Cardinal Mercier? What member of the allied forces does not cheiish the memory of the Primate of Belgium and the voice of her people—the voice that with majestic scorn and yet superb self control called the high command of the enemy to account for broken promises; the voice that aroused the indignation of the civilized world by its “Appeal to Neutrals”; the voice that rang out above the multitudes densely packing the Brussels’ Cathedral. "My children, never bend you necks to the conqueror"; the voice that burst forth in protest to Governor-General Von Blissing, "This is no longer war; it is an attack upon humanity"; the serene and fearless voice that defied hostile rulers with the cry, "Right violated is still right; injustice supported by force is still injustice!” When his countrymen were crushed under the iron heel of military rule, he was the flag of their oppressed nation. With a plea to Heaven in his heart and armed with the conviction that he was upholding honesty and integrity, he alone stepped into the breach for Belgian liberties; stretching forth his arms in supplication for his suffering people, he urged them to increase their fortitude and assured them that God above would preserve them. Mercier was the man who took the challenge and flung it back in calm defiance to his all-powerful foe by re-animating his fellow citizens and planting the arms of war where before :he peaceful plow had torn a furrow. It was he who inspired and revitalized the handful of down-hearted and down-trodden peasants that halted the onrush of the Prussian hordes at Liege and Louvain until the Allies were ready to meet them. With his hand lifted in holy benediction over his outraged children, with his soul crying out to heaven for their consolation and protection, he shone forth as the beacon light of hope, rising triumphantly as the bulwark against imperialism, walking the path of Christian righteousness, confident in the goodness of the Almighty.134 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 When the history of the first years of this century shall have been written with its awful stories of bloodshed and destruction, its record of battle and slaughter, there will be many now famous who will be forgotten. Thai will not be true of the man in whose honor we now speak. This soldier of the Church has become a shrine at which the heart of mankind will ever rejoice and give thanks, for his greatness was not only that of the warrior, but that of the saint; his mission was to alleviate the sufferings of his noble people, to infuse in them new spirit and new life, to make of them, as they turned out to be, a nation of heroes—and of these heroes, he was the first, the truest, the greatest.

IGNATIUS COLLEGE 135 i lie Last Outpost 1 1 POETRY is not entirely gone from modern civilization. In a clear green twilight, at the hour when faces become indistinguishable and forms take on fantastic and foreign suggestions, I turned down an empty street and came to an abrupt halt at a great building of brown stone. It was a hospital, blank and unadorned. From where I stood, close under the wall, it rose like a high wine-colored cliff. It was what I saw in the window that held me. The square was suffused with an orange electric glow, and close to the pane were tubes, retorts, phials, and those round jars that used to shine like red and green eyes in the windows of old-fashioned drug stores. Their very shapes wild and outlandish, they held liquids the essence of elfland. Clear, pentecostal. transparent red; dark, mystic, mid-ocean blue; white opal, like a watery moon; hanging, floating seas, in whose translucent abysses moved what offspring of pure light only Turner might have told. As 1 looked there hovered over them a shadow, strange and distorted, the guardian djin of those unheard-of seas! The door swung back—a man pushed by me with a look—a man muffled in a black coat, clutching in his hand a dark and mysterious satchel. Did it hold within it a phial of that bursting, bottled, sunset sky? Did he know its secret? No wonder that he went robed in black—in reverence to the light within! Were it another day, I should have followed him. crying: Beware! Beware! His flashing eyes, his floating hair Weave a circle round him thrice. And close your eyes with holy dread, For he on honey dew hath fed And drunk the milk of Paradise! And I marveled: If a doctor were ever a poet, what wierd potions would he not evolve, what panaceas for the soul! How the world would change in the wedding of art and science! Edward S.

Oft have I wooed thee when the Summer's noon Burst prison buds and bade the flowers bloom free. And brimmed with wistful colors the lagoon. Yet unrequited was my love for thee. When Autumn with its ripened sweets had filled To the rude rafters every vacant barn. I've wooed thee. Poesy, my soul instilled With love beams, brighter than the light of morn. When hoary Winter with its icy breath Spread frozen wings of snow o'er flower and tree— False, treacherous wings of feathers steeped in death— And every vassal of the sun did flee To that dark mystic world that lies one gasp Beyond this world of ours, I sought in vainST.

Or wander down beside the rushy brook Where swaying reeds with racing winds would play. Their swishing laugh re-echoing in the nook, In which I sat upon a mossy throne, Bidding the faery Fancy weave her thread Into a land o'er which I reigned alone— Most precious youth—O days of love, long dead— Dryad, you whispered something in my ear. Something supremely beautiful and sweet, A love-word which my inmost soul did hear, Which these dull lips of clay can ne'er repeat. It was the seed of sweetly sad romance. The bulb, the root, the essence of things fair, And, fostered by the magic sun of chance, It bloomed, a blossom beautiful and rare. But, as a caged lark that iongs to breast Uplifting airs and reach its mother skies. It brought me to the bower of your rest. Grant it your dewy blessing ere it dies. Grant to these lips a powerful melody, Which, like a storm o'er worldly minds shall break. And lift the clouds that lie twixt them and thee. Then shall the poppies fade. And you?—Awake! Nicholas Barron, Law, '31.138 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 The Supreme C ourt and tlie Constitution THE Constitution of the United States is the most important production of its kind in human history. It created, without historic precedent, a federal-minded government. It combined national strength with individual liberty in a degree so remarkable as to attract the world's admiration. Never before in the history of man had a government struck sc fine a balance between liberty and union, between states' rights and national sovereignty. 1 he world had labored for ages to solve the greatest of all governmental problems, but it had labored in vain. Greece, in her mad clamor for liberty, had forgotten the need of the strength that union brings, and she perished. Rome made the opposite mistake. Rome fostered union, nationality, for its strength, until it became a tyrant and strangled the child liberty. It was left for our Revolutionary fathers to strike the balance which was to make this nation the greatest on the face of the earth, by holding up before the eyes of the world the imperishable rules of justice in the exercise of government. Many of these men who. as members of the convention of 1789, participated in the flaming of the Constiution were lawyers trained in the principles of the Common Law. The failings in all previous forms of government were patent to them. Now being presented with the task of laying a foundation for their government, they resorted to those selfsame principles of the Common Law because they discerned in them a means of administration deemed wise to adopt. Following this trend of thought the)- established a national judiciary which was the crowning achievement of the convention and made-possible the successful operation of a federal system of government. In intent this judiciary was to be a separate and independent department of the government. Actually, however, like the executive and legislative branches, it is dependent upon the action of other departments for its creation and operation. Although the Constitution provides for this Supreme Court. Congress must take some action in organizing the Court and determining the number of justices. Acting upon this power, Congress has established other courts which are entirely under its control. These courts may be established, abolished, their jurisdiction extended or diminished, just as Congress wills. However, the power of Congress may not abolish the Supreme Court, for this condition is expressly provided against in the Constitution; nor can its original jurisdiction be altered by any act of Congress. This jurisdiction includes all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those to which a State is a party.139 ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE Its appellate jurisdiction, moreover, covers all cases over which the United States courts could take legal authority '’with such exceptions and under such regulations as Congress shall make." Congress has made these exceptions and regulations from time to time, but the jurisdiction is still very wide and of surpassing importance. In general it includes all cases from state courts where a national law or right has not been upheld, or where a state law' or right has been supported against the claim of a national; all cases in which the jurisdiction of the district is questioned; all cases where the construction of the Constitution of the United States or any law or treaty is involved, or a State Constitution or statute is claimed to be in contravention to the national Constitution, and in all cases where the decision of the Circuit Court of Appeals is not final. In all cases where such judgment is final the Supreme Court may review the decision and uphold or reverse it. In addition, under certain conditions, appeals may be taken from the Court of Customs Appeals and Courts of Claims; also from the District Court when sitting as a Prize-Court, and in certain cases from the District Courts of Hawaii, Porto Rico, Alaska, the Philippines, and the District of Columbia. Thus the final decision of a constitutional question, the constitutionality of either a state law or a congressional statute, may be appealed and brought before the Supreme Court. The greatest work of the Supreme Court, and that which has attracted most attention, has been its interpretation of the Constitution. In its performance of that duty the Court has had to apply an instrument made at the birth of the Government to the changing conditions of the nation s development. This has been done in all cases with the wisdom of statesmen after due judicial deliberation. The judges have been, with scarcely an exception, learned and able attorneys, and their personal characters have given weight to their judgments. The)’ have performed their duties with courage, integrity, and intelligence. The)’ have, in general, administered with firmness and with tact the jurisdiction of their Courts. Sovereign states, great business institutions, and the masses of the people have bowed to the judgments of that tribunal. No fair-minded man has ever doubted, however much he might be disposed to criticise the finding in any particular case, that the Court in arriving at its conclusions has given full consideration to ever)’ fact and argument in its earnest endeavor to do justice. The construing of the Constitution—and that construction is authoritative and final, as regards the subject matters of judicial determination—is made by the Supreme Court following a few simple rules. The construction is neither lax nor vigorous, but such as to effectuate the purposes of the instrument as "an establishment of a frame of government, and a declaration of that government s fundamental principles, intended to endure for ages and to be adapted to the various crises of human affairs"; the antecedent history of the country and the state of the public affairs at the time of the adoption of the Constitution are considered, in Older that the old law, the mischief, and the remedy may have their relative weights; a contemporaneous legislative exposition agreed upon for a long term of years fixes the construction; the words are read in their natural sense, departing from and varying by construction the natural meaning of the words only when140 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 different clauses of the instrument bear upon each other and would conflict, unless the words were construed otherwise than by their natural and common import; an exception from a power which is granted in express terms marks the extent of that power and shows that it necessarily includes other cases which come within the terms of the grant and which might have been, but were not, specifically excepted; when a term of Common Law is used, its Common Law meaning is adopted with it; "The Federalist" is not, of course, of binding authority but is considered of great weight as a complete commentary upon the Constitution, and is appealed to by all parties in c|uestions to which that instrument has given birth; the reported proceedings of the conventions which framed the Constitution, and of the several state conventions which ratified it, though frequently referred to in the discussion of questions of constitutional construction, arc not of binding authority. The Supreme Court will not, however, on slight implication or vague conjecture, judicially determine an act of legislation to be in conflict with the Constitution, for the presumption is always in favor of the constitutionality of a law. In carrying out the tremendous work, which its founders foresaw and aimed to protect by preventing Congress and other legislative bodies from making laws in excess of their powers, the greatest service which this Supreme Court has rendered to the country is that throughout our history it has been an object lesson of the supremacy of the law. It is impossible to overstate the vital importance to the Republic of the teaching of this lesson, a lesson so hard for a democracy to learn, and so essential to the maintenance of free institutions. William F. Sherman, Arts, 30.142 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 IGNATIAN CHRISTMAS FORMAL The climax of social activities at St. Ignatius was the first annual Christmas Formal given in the College Little Theater on Saturday, December 8. The feature of the evening was the music by Jack Swales' crooning syncopators of University of California fame. The decorations were simple and complete, suggesting and lending an atmosphere of the Yuletide season, set off with distinctive programs of parchment. The affair was under the direction of the Student-Body and managed by a committee of L. Mclnerney, P. Vlautin, chairman, A. Sullivan, H. Seguine, L. I.uckman, J. Cullen, J. McCormack, W. Spohn and F. Colligan. ♦ i FROSH RECEPTION On Saturday, August 25, the second annual Freshman Reception welcomed the Class of '32, College of Arts and Sciences, in a warm and friendly fashion, in contrast to the preceding week of Freshman rules, brawls and hazing. All class enmities were set aside and the upper classmen as well as the Sophs joined in the lively welcome. The College Little Theater, tactfully decorated in a scheme of Green and Gold, pennants and banners, with snappy music by a freshman orchestra, was the setting of the occasion. SPORTS DANCE The Block Club made its social debut with a novel sports dance as a preliminary to the Gray Fog football season. In the College Little Theater on October 6, a large and enthusiastic crowd applauded this first effort of the Block Club. i i FOOTBALL DANCE The visiting football gentry from Gonzaga were entertained on the evening following the College Big Game in the College Little Theater. A large gathering attended to honor the visitors from the North. The Block Club sponsored the event.143 ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE FRESHMAN FANDANGO In continuation of the custom inaugurated by the freshmen of last year, the class of 1932 on the evening of April 6, were hosts at the annual informal Fandango. The)' upheld the tradition in a worthy manner with their very enjoyable affair held at Lakeside Country Club. The music was entrancing and rendered in a manner befitting the occasion, the one event of the year where the lowly frosh come into their own. Novel programs and interesting diversions in the form of entertainment featured between numbers on the regular dance program. The full measure of appreciation for the success of the affair must be accorded to the committee composed of Francis O Gara, chairman, Joseph McCormack, Percy Creede jnd J. Sullivan. BASKETBALL DANCE In the spirit of the prospective basketball season the first social event of the Spring semester was held at the Hillcrest Club Saturday evening, January 26, under the auspices of the Block club. With the famous Russian Hill as its backgiound, the Club was a perfect setting for the evening. A popular San Francisco cabaret oichestra justly upheld their fame, receiving much favorable comment. Programs were appiopriate to the occasion, being the reproduction of a basketball in every detail and having a Block S. I. embossed on the outside. R. Parina, J. Casey and A. Skelly were in charge of the evening’s affair, and are deserving of no small commendation for its success. SOPH DRAG On the Hallowed Eve of October 31, the Sophomores were hosts to the Student-Body at their annual ■■Drag,'' held in the Little Theatre of the Liberal Arts Building. With a graveyard in the background and original though conventional decorations, the happy crowd absorbed the spirit so well dispensed by rhe syncopators who played from a set "in Hades."144 The 1GNATIAN ' 1929 SENIOR BALL One of the greatest innovations ever attempted at St. Ignatius in a social way was the first Senior Ball. Members of the Junior Classes decided to merge their efforts with those of the seniors and the Senior Ball representatives and ma':e this event positively the greatest ever in Ignatian History. Attended by every member of the Student-Body in any way socially inclined, as well as by a good sprinkling of the younger alumni, this monster project can be voted as the latest success of St. Ignatius. The date of the affair was May 18, appropriately chosen because of its proximity to the exercises connected with Commencement, and rounding off the circle of affairs by adding the social touch. LAW FORMAL The sixth annual formal dance given by the department of Law and Commerce proved as distinct a success this year as it has been heretofore. The committee is to be profusely congratulated for the striking way in which all arrangements were handled. An evening to be remembered by all appreciative enthusiasts. ARTS SENIOR DINNER DANCE The Arts and Sciences seniors held their annual formal dinner dance, which has become one of the customs religiously adhered to by members of the senior class. This year the dance was held at the Lakeside Country Club on April 27. The affair was one of the best ever given under college auspices and ever)’ detail was in strict harmony with the general amenities of the evening. President Frank Kerner headed the committee in charge of the last official function of this class as undergraduates. ♦ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 145 Rail i i i ICS I he Football Rallies of the ’28 season were held in the College auditorium and on the east court of the Liberal Arts Building. Enthusiasm over the prospects of the varsity potential Far Western Conference Champs packed them in at each of these rallies. Entertainment was as diversified as possible, and saved to discover several stars for rally and entertainment purposes. Prominent among the discoveries was ’Speck" Lisle, fair-haired boy of Ignatian boxers. "Speck’’ displayed some of the class that has given him his reputation in amateur circles, and at each rally was much in demand. Eddy O’Niel’s quartet rendered Ignatian airs and rally songs with true Sophomore verve, and a brand new series of numbers to boot. The surprise of the year came as a result of a production stupendous, magnificent and other adjectives, called for some reason or other "The Volga Boatman." The Two Big Rallies of the Season: THE SANTA CLARA RALLY With the combined schools of Arts and Law-Commerce, the yell leaders worked wonders with the yells and songs. The chief speaker of the evening was Coach Jimmie Needles, who gave a prospectus of the season. Prominent alumni grew reminiscent and entertained the assemblage with talcs of the days of yore. Eddy Hcaly sang songs and told jokes in the style that made him the most popular entertainer in the city some years back. Two different quartets rendered all possible varieties of songs; "The Volga Boatman" dragged his heavy burden across the stage to the doleful strains of some hideous music. These, together with incidental numbers, plus the high pitch of enthusiasm in the assembly, all combined to make the evening's entertainment an unqualified success. THE SAINT MARY S RALLY Oratory—almost exclusively of a positive nature, featured this rally. Very pointed remarks were made about the crowded (?) rooting sections. The remarks were very effective indeed, as the section at the St. Mary’s game was the largest and peppiest of the year. The rally itself became a pep meeting as the words of the speakers began to sink home. Everyone left the hall bearing a small sign with the legend "Whip the Gaels” . . . and all were "her up" over the prospects of winning the Far Western Conference Title. Captain Jack O'Marie showed that he knows how to address a rally as well as to crash through opposing linesmen. It was after this rally that hand bills appeared lining every pole, on all roads in the vicinity of the Stadium—"Whip the Gaels."146 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 With the prospect of a championship basketball team in sight the followers of the Gray Fog crowded ever)’ rally which preceded the appearance of the varsity. With the talent that had been discovered during the run of football rallies plus several new entertainers, singers, "hoofers" and speakers, the rallies were all that rallies should be. Oratory played a large part in most of these assemblies, all of which were held in the College Auditorium. Captain Ray Maloney featured almost every meeting with a few words on the coming games. Enthusiasm reached its highest pitch directly after the victory over California. While followers of the Fog had taken victor)' for granted, the hard fight with which the Fog took that victory, added a color all its own to this rally. Moreover, this victory was co-incidenral with the visit of the Provincial and these two circumstances plus the holiday that resulted, made this rally a huge success. After they had defeated their Pacific Association opponents to win the Coast Title and a trip to Kansas City to compete in the National Tournament there took place probably the greatest rally and send off accorded any Ignatian team. An auto parade for several blocks long formed just in front of the Liberal Arts Building, and with Traffic Officers leading the way, proceeded to the City Hall, where Mayor Rolph s official representative joined the parade. An impromtu rally was held on the steps of the City Hall and then with the band playing Ignatian airs, the parade started down Market Street for the Ferry. Alumni joined the parade as it passed along so that by the time the Ferry Building was reached there was a representative crowd of Ignatian preps, Ignatian Collegians and Ignatian Alumni, all on hand to help in the huge send off. Yell leaders mounted on the steps at the Ferry Building and directed yells and songs from the throng that packed every inch of space along the corridors. Coach Jimmy Needles received a tremendous ovation as he rose to say a few- words just before leaving. Each member of the team received a similar ovation; the compliments and best wishes of the city's representative were accorded the team and to cap it all a beautiful floral piece expressed the best wishes of the Rossi Florists, rivals for the P. A. A. Title. Several members of the Y. M. I. Team, finalists with the Fogmen in the tournament were also on hand to offer congratulations and best wishes in the quest for the national championship. On their return, the team was received into the city by the Executive Committee of the A. S. S. 1. C. and the Skull and Sledge Society. The team was taken to an informal luncheon and then returned to their homes. On the following day they received their official welcome with a rally and the aw-ard of blocks in the College Auditorium.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 147 anquie i i i The annual Senior Dinner Dance was given at the Lakeside Country Club at the beginning of May. The graduates closed their college careers with a final successful social event, well attended and thoroughly enjoyed. The affair was one quiet and dignified in tone, and this was enhanced by the rich atmosphere of the Club. The Sophomores entertained themselves at the "La Tosca" cafe during the latter part of the Fall semester. The dinner was thoroughly enjoyed by the class and was enlivened by a program of appropriate entertainment. This event of their curriculum was outstanding for its success. The Class of '31 again dined themselves early in the Spring at the "Flower of Italy" with a similar evening. This Affair was well acclaimed by the participants as a guarantee for more of the kind before the expiration of the term. i A banquet held at the "Lido Cafe" was one of the outstanding social events of the fall semester held by the Freshman Class. The dinner was marked by its departure from the usual in affairs of such nature. The entertainment was novel and inspiring, and the evening was held as a success to be envied. The Freshmen were in full attendance and did justice to their cause.THE PROGRESS OF LAW in.

Without social aims the organization is more than a society, because it extends hospitality to its guests and entertains distinguished visitors as opportunities are offered. Meetings are held twice a month, at which an invited speaker addresses the members on some technical subject, or films are displayed and discussed. Acquaintances formed under such conditions not only improve the appreciation of professional ideals, but establish friendly relations which will be valuable in the future in securing positions of advantage. Three public lectures are given each year to spread timely scientific knowledge and give public approval to younger men whose worth should be more generally appreciated. Such occasions likewise offer a pleasant opportunity for inviting and entertaining guests in an open meeting which concludes with the serving of refreshments in the analytical laboratory.

Judge Matt I. Sullivan has been giving a great deal of his time and devoting his talents to the realization of this hope. The addition of this property to the land now occupied by the college will make it possible to carry out the plans that the Administration has in mind for the construction of a Greater St. Ignatius." DINNER IN HONOR OF FATHER WOODS On September 26, 1928, a dinner was held in honor of Father Woods, S. J., prominent Jesuit and a former moderator of the Alumni, on the occasion of his golden jubilee in the Society of Jesus. The affair was held at the Bohemian Club, and brought out the unified attitude of the Alumni toward this beloved Jesuit. Under the chairmanship of Joseph A. Muiphy, the arrangements for the celebration were carried out successfully in every detail. Edward F. O Day was the toastmaster, and entered whole-heartedly into the spirit of the evening. Among the speakers of the evening were Vincent K. Butler, who delivered a touching address in praise of the work of Father Woods; Honorable James D. Phelan, President of the Alumni Association; John Mulrenin; Father Zacheus Maher, S.J.; Father D. J. Mahoney, S.J. FOOTBALL LUNCHEON On October 4, a luncheon was held in honor of the Varsity football team at the Palace Hotel. Martin H. O'Brien acted as Chairman of the Committee in charge. William T.

This was shortly after the team had won the Pacific Coast elimination tournament, for the selection of the squad that would be admitted into the National Championship playoff. The banquet, which was in the nature of a sendoff, took place at the Elks Club. The banquet was attended with great enthusiasm by the large crowd present. J. Frank Barrett was chairman of the committee in charge of arrangements. Charles Knights presided. The team was presented, and mementos were given to Coach Jimmy Needles and Manager Jack Patridge, by John L. Whelan of the Board of Athletic Control.168 The IGNATIAN 1929 ACTIVE YOUNGER ALUMNI i It is interesting to observe chat many of the comparatively younger members of the Alumni, graduates of recent years, have returned in the role of teachers in the various departments of the college. Scanning the list of instructors, one who has been at St. Ignatius since the days when classes were held in the old wooden building on Hayes Street, notices the names of several young men who were students themselves but a few years before the occupation of the present building of Liberal Arts. These graduates have left impressive records behind them, which will challenge the efforts of scholarly students of the classes of future years. Their participation in the forensic activities, cherished traditions at St. Ignatius, their excellent records in scholastic pursuits, and their victorious competition in literary contests of a religious and secular nature, attest their enthusiastic interest in collegiate activities. In fact, many of the undergraduates can readily recall the triumph of some of these youthful teachers in oratorical and elocutionary efforts; their success in the portrayal of characters well-known to enthusiasts of the drama, their splendid appearance on the night of graduation, when their diplomas and degrees were conferred upon them with honors. None of these of whom I speak were content with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, but continued their studies, some remaining at their Alma Mater, and some enrolling in other institutions. In the class of nineteen hundred twenty-one, there were two young men, William T. Sweigert, and Edward I. Fitzpatrick, who were graduated with the Bachelor of Arts degree. Both had been taking law during the senior and junior year of their college course, and continued, receiving the degree of Bachelor of Laws two years later. Among their employments at present is the instruction of classes in the Law and Extension course of the college. Two other graduates, membeis of the class of nineteen twenty-four, are now on the faculty, with the others mentioned. William A. O'Brien received his Arts degree in '24, and his LL.B. two years later, being valedictorian of his class. Immediately after passing the Bar, he w-as engaged as an instructor of Law' in the Division of Arts and Science. His classmate, w'ho is Charles Ruggles, after receiving his Bachelor degree from the Liberal Arts department, taught chemistry at St. Ignatius, but is at present on the faculty of the Extension Division, which opened when the present building w'as occupied. From the class of ’25 two more have been placed on the faculty, one in the day department and the other in the law school. Preston Devine, after receiving his A.B. in 25, continued with the study of law which lie had begun in his junior year. After beingST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 169 graduated with his LL.B., he was admitted to the faculty as instructor of several courses, among them being law and economics. A classmate, Edward D. Keil, after graduating with the A.B. degree, entered the Harvard School of Law, and received his Bachelor degree in this stuJy last Spring. He was added to the faculty of the St. Ignatius Law School in the Fall of the present term. A. Russell Berti, M.A., LL.B., has the distinction among this group of being the first and only one to receive a Master s degree. Being graduated in '26 with an A.B., he continued the study of law. which he also had begun in the midst of his study of the Liberal Arts. While yet an undergraduate in the Law School, he entered the post graduate division at the University of California, and completed the Master's course with an enviable record before he had concluded his legal pursuits at St. Ignatius. Since last Fall he has been on the faculty of the Division of Arts and Science, teaching courses in the upper as well as in the lower division classes. Aside from these few members of the enlarged faculty, there are many more who have been graduated from St. Ignatius in past years who have returned as teachers of the subjects in which they attained a high scholastic standing, or from which they chose their life work; but since this is an eulogy in praise of a certain group which I regard as younger members of the Alumni, the older members of this association of graduates are not to consider themselves slighted. Their names and portraits, and accounts of their activity and accomplishments to advance the intersets of the College, have appeared in each succeeding issue of the Annual. But the work of these younger members of the Alumni Association, who have helped materially to maintain the scholastic standard of the curriculum in all departments of the College, is unquestionably worthy of all the praise that may be derived through this medium.THE PROGRESS OF LAW IV. I j ist. we joy in the perfection Legal science has attained. Now we show a predilection For the good that we have gained. Law has reached a station, therefore. Hitherto unrealized. We've more statutes than we care for. But, thank God, we’re civilized! F. H. O.ATHLETICS i 172 The IGNATIAN - 1929 Managerial System THE increasing participation in athletics has necessitated the adoption of the managerial system 31 St. Ignatius College. Previously, when there was less participation in sports, the correspondence, arrangement of schedule in various sports, and the securing and transportation of equipment was not a difficult task and was done by the coach and a manager, chosen from among the students who were willing to undertake the work. A manager was chosen for each sport and often the student selected was a lower classman. He assisted the coach in preparing for the coming season, and was present when the particular events that came under his jurisdiction were scheduled. Such a system was satisfactory when three or four events completed a season's schedule. But now sports have a more significant place among the activities at college. During the football season, every weekend a game is scheduled either at home or out of town. In the other major sports, extensive schedules are arranged and concluded. In addition to the major sports, namely, football, basket-bad, baseball and track, intramural activities have become popular among the students of all classes. Among these are golf, tennis, boxing and handball. Such active participation requires an extensive and efficient system of management. Since most colleges employ the system of student management, St. Ignatius has adopted this system, and it has been in operation since the past football season. The purpose of student managers is to give those who are interested in athletics, but are unable to participate, an opportunity to keep in close touch with the teams and at the same time actively help to carry out the schedule without difficulty that often arises from lack of equipment or the loss of it. The system in brief is as follows: A General Manager is chosen by the Board of Athletic Control to act as its administrative agent. He is assisted by five senior managers, who manage football, basketball, baseball, track and minor sports. Intramural activities are included among minor sports. The senior manager is selected by the process of elimination, after serving three years as an assistant while in freshman, sophomore and junior years. In freshman year, a student desiring to become an athletic manager files an application with the General Manager. Five managers are selected for each sport from among the freshman candidates to serve as assistants during the sophomore year. Jack Patridge. Genual ManagerST.

Hecht, Minor Sports At the end of the sophomore year, ten are selected from among this group to serve as Junior Managers. From these ten Juniors are selected five Senior Managers. The selection of the senior, junior and sophomore managers is made by the majority of the individuals with whom they work. This group is composed of the Athletic Director, the General Manager, the retiring Senior Manager of the respective sport, the chairman of the Board of Athletic Control and the faculty Athletic Moderator. The duties of the Senior Manager vary according to the requirements of his sport, but in general he is responsible for the progress of the sport, the handling of the equipment, and the accommodations of the teams and the arrangement of games as necessary. One of his most important duties is the assigning of work to the assistant managers. At the beginning of the Fall semester, the senior managers receive the managerial Block award. This differs from the athletic award only in that it has a bar of the same-material of the letter, beneath it. The junior and sophomore assistants and the freshman candidates are given insignia of lesser significance. Those who are most deserving, usually receive a numeral.174 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 The system after one year of operation, has been highly successful. The managers from the various classes have assisted very efficiently in their respective sports. They have aided in preparing for the season by their readiness to fill the needs of the teams on days of practice; they have appeared at the games and performed the duties assigned them faithfully. Usually, only the Senior Manager and the General Manager accompany the teams on trips. The few final arrangements that remain after the team leaves town can be concluded by these two managers, together with the coach. This practice of taking only the Senior and General Managers out of town is an added incentive to the lower class assistants to continue their efforts, until they are in the senior year, so as to earn appointment to one of these positions and thus go on the trips that will be on the schedule of the teams year after year. The work of the managers has had much to do with the success of the teams during the present term. Without their efficient cooperation the various delays that arise frequently from lack of equipment would have halted practice and hindered other preseason activities.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 175 Lcustau Connell ell Leaders A Al Scott, '29 led the yell leaders for his third consecutive year and with the assistance of Ernest Loustau, '32, and Joseph Connell, '32, the Gray Fo£ teams were cheered to victory. The rooting organized by Al and his assistants was the best that has been produced at St. Ignatius in many years. Although Al leaves us this year, he will have left behind him a record for his successors to aim at and try to duplicate. Loustau and Connell will more than likely be named as yell leaders for the coming year but as yet the senior leader has not been elected.True friends are golden treasures fine, Whose shining lustre lights one's mind— A vision red and gold doth shine And there a friend so dear 1 find.

This is the stipulation for the Boyle Loyalty Award, made by William S. Boyle, ‘07, who was impressed with the sportsmanship of the lunarians in their athletic activities with the University of Nevada. With these words he sent to the College a medal to be awarded annually to the player fulfilling this condition. The Boyle Award has been given to three players to date, the third year of its existence. Captain Jack O'Marie was the recipient of the award this year. Last year the Boyle Medal was awarded to Richard Vaccaro, ‘30, who completed his athletic achievements at St. Ignatius. In 1926 the medal was given to Dan Murphy, this being the initial award. C.aptain O'Marie was one of the outstanding centers on the Pacific Coast last year, barring no conferences and geographical demarcations. It goes without saying that he starred in minor games, but what is to be noted is that he maintained his sterling game-in competition with the strongest teams on the Gray Fog schedule, and these include the best in the West. A great part of St. Ignatius' defense, which was the occasion of many favorable-remarks by the press, was played by Captain O'Marie. He never failed to talk it up when the going was bad, and exuded new confidence to his neighbors on the line. The best concrete tribute that can be paid to O'Marie is to recount that he has been re-elected to a full term of the captaincy for 1929. sharing that honor with George Olson In 1928 he was named captain in reversal of a decision to name no leader for that season. O'MarikST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 179180 The 1GNATIAN ' 1929 Harry Quass Jimmy Richard Vaccaro Coaching Ciaff THH coaching staff this year welcomed a new comer in Richard "Red” Vacarro, who took over the job of handling the leserves and giving his assistance to the other coaches. Heretofore Red" has always confined his work to the athletic field himself, but with the completion of his college career he took up the task of assisting Jimmy Needles and Harr)' Quass on the gridiron. James R. Needles deserves any tribute that can be predicated of him at St. Ignatius. It is only now that the foundation laid five years ago is beginning to allow a superstructure which we have every reason to expect will reach into the upper regions of football renown. Jimmy had his most successful year in 1928. It was really the first season that he was free from harassing worries anent small and light men. Harr)' Quass, line coach, late of Washington and Gonzaga, has been invaluable to Jimmy in taking the players through the routine work. St. Ignatius' defense, which at times was remarkable, may be laid to Quass.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 181 CAPTAINS At the conclusion of the 1928 season, when it was time to elect a grid leader for the Fall of 1929, it was decided by the athletic authorities to forego the election until the season got under way and some player loomed as an unmistakable choice. Two weeks after the start of the season. Jack O’Marie, center, proved to the the actual, if not the duly named, leader of the squad, and his position was confirmed by formal election of the captaincy. O'Marie has been mentioned by almost every sports writer following bay football as being worthy of consideration for an All-Star berth. By his stellar playing and superb leadership, O'Marie proved his worth to the position of honor Jack O Marif. Crater awarded him. With one more year to play he looks like the first All-Coast man to be developed at St. Ignatius. At the annual banquet attended by the football team, the players confirmed their admiration of O'Marie by re-electing him captain along with George Olson, star end for the Gray Fog for the past three years. Olson and O'Marie have been at St. Ignatius for seven years, having received their early training at St. Ignatius High School. Olson is not a big man as football players go, but he never let his comparative lightness excuse him from playing a vigorous game. He is equally good on defense and offense. Some of the prettiest pass plays concocted by Coach Needles wound up with Olson on the receiving end. and some of the flossiest around-end plays of opposing coaches have been spoiled by him on defense. He is speedy, rugged and tireless, and tackles with a viciousness not frequently seen on the field. The Gray Fog eleven is doubly insured for good leadership for 1929 with Olson and O'Marie at the helm. Gforgf Olson, F.nJ182 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 Si. Ignatius 12, Nevada 0 Heralded as a fast and light team, the Nevada Wolves came to town to engage the Gray l og of St. Ignatius in the season's first encounter for both institutions. It was a game filled with thrills for spectators, but. as it was the initial appearance of the two teams, the contest was not all that it could have been in the way of good football. In the first half both squads battled up and down the field, but all attempts to score were frustrated whenever an opportunity presented itself. The yardage made in this half was about ecjual, the Ignatians enjoying the advantage, if any. Before the customers had settled down to witness the continuation of the stubborn battle at the beginning of the second half. Hlmer Sadocchi, diminutive quarterback, received the kickoff on his thirty-five yard line and raced the entire length of the field in a beautiful swerving, dodging manner, to store the first touchdown of the season for the Gray Fog. Baric-lies missed the try for point and the store stood 6-0 in favor of the Ignatians. The other score was the result of a last quarter drive of sixty yards by the Gray Fog. featuring Anderson. Kleckner and Barcilles. Big Bob Kleckner went over for the score frem the six yard line. The final count was 12-0 in favor of the Ignatians when Bareillcs again missed the try for point. In the first half things were made lively for the Ignatians when Captain Bailley of the Wolves carried the ball over one hundred yards in three plays, but was forced to leave the game in the initial quarter because of injuries. In the line Captain O'Marie, Hanlon and Vin Bray showed well, while Sadocchi, Ba c:lles and Kleckner gave premise in the backrteld. Sadocchi, Quarterback St. Ignatius 0, Olympic Club 13 Favored to be overwhelmed by a blushingly large score, the varsity scored a moral victor)- when it held the All-American, undefeated Olympic Club team to a 13-0 score. The showing of the Ignatians can best be depicted in the following words of one of the leading papers: "The Ignatians battled man for man against an undefeated team hailed as the greatest eleven in the country, and battled their opponents to a standstill.”ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 183 Big Bob Kleckner scoring bis first touchdown of the season for the Igna tians. Kleckner was the mainstay of the Gray Fog and on this play went over from the six yard line for the second score of the day, and to end the scoring of the game, which resulted in a win for the Ignatians over the Nevada Wolves. John Casey Quart?' Russell Kfil Quarter184 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 . Although choosing to be on the defensive most of the game, the Gray Fog launched a passing attack occasionally that had the Olympians puzzled. Most of the spirals went via the Klcckner to Hor-gan route. On one occasion such a pass placed the ball on the Olympic twenty-four yard line, but the All-Americans held and Klcckner was forced to kick over the goal. Two drives, one in the first quarter and one in the fourth, were the sum total of the Winged O's superiority over the Gray Fog. The first tally was the result of a straight drive down the field from the Ignatian forty yard line. Wilson. Allen, Kaer and Marcus participated in the attick, the latter scoring the touchdown. On the try for point St. Ignatius was offside and the digit was awarded to the Club on the technicality. Simas, entering the contest at the beginning of the fourth quarter, was directly responsible for the second touchdown. His thirty-five yard run around the end put the ball on the Ignatian twenty-yard line. From there Wilson and Allen pounded the Ignatian wall inch by inch for the touchdown. Wilson failed to convert. Parina, our red-headed demon of a tackle, was very much in evidence throughout the game, as was Captain O'Marie. In the backficld Kleckner's kicking was the feature, while Horgan's vicious tackling and pass-snaring are worthy of mention. Andf.rson. Vullbad Santa Clara 33, 5 . Ignatius 0 After outplaying and outfighting a superior and more powerful Bronco eleven for one scoreless half. Coach Needles' Ignatians finally crumbled before a second half onslaught and succumbed to a 33-0 avalanche. What appeared to be a close game in the first half turned out to be a severe beating when the Gray Fog. minus capable reserves, cracked under the strain. The turning point come after the third period was three minutes old. And never thereafter did the Broncos cease in their lust for touchdowns. Every play attempted by our fellow Jesuits worked and the score column was augmented by methods ranging from a one yard buck to an eighty yard kickoff return. Haakinson, Machado, Mettler and Barsi were the heavy gunners for the Santa Clarans. The steady Ignatian teamwork of the first half, plus the brilliant defensive work of O'Marie, Bray and Kleckner, all went to naught. The boys seemed exhausted, while the opposition became invigorated with new life.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 185 The Gray Fog fought an uphill fight against the Santa Clarans and held them even for three periods. Here the Ignatians held Barsi of Santa Clara for no gain on a wide end run.

Gwynn Carey Joe Stapleton Guard186 The IGNAT1AN ' 1929 The only Gray Fog scoring threat came early in the first quarter when a pass, Klcckner to Olson, placed the ball on the Bronco four yard line. Four tries by Kletkner, however, failed to materialize when the Santa Clara line stiffened and held. This piece of offensive work carried the ball to the Broncos' territory, where it remained during the entire half. Parma, Bray, O'Marie, Olson, Keil and Kleck-ner must be commended on their valiant stand. The Santa Clara reserves proved too much for them, for only superhuman efforts could stand that second half after such a hard-fought first period. Si. Ignatius 19, V res no State 0 Displaying a well diversified attack, the St. Ignatius football machine ran up its season's highest .-core by mowing down the Fresno State College eleven, 19 0. The Gray l;og started its march immediately on the opening kickoff, and after five minutes of play was leading 6-0. The score was the result of a poor punt by Telonicher of Fresno. The Ignatians took possession of the ball on the Fresno twenty-seven yard line. Bareilles, on straight power plays, carried the ball to the two yard line, where Anderson went over for the score. Tall man failed to convert. Towards the end of the first quarter, Parina blocked a punt and recovered on the Fresno twenty-eight yard stripe. The Ignatians were on their way again and managed to put the ball on the two yard line through the efforts of Bareilles, Anderson and Sadocchi. as the quarter ended. On the fiist play of the second quarter. Anderson bucked the pigskin over and Tallman converted. The score stood 13-0. The other touchdown also came in the second period, and the scoring was over for the day. Sadocchi received a punt on his thirty-nine yard line and by some clever open field running through the whole Teacher eleven, carried the ball to the Fresno twenty-six yard line. From that point Kleckner went into action and in five consecutive plays the pigskin rested on the fourteen yard line. Two more bucks at the line gained two more-yards, and then Kleckner raced around end for twelve yards and six digits. Tallman's attempt at conversion went wide and the half ended with the varsity leading 19-0. At the beginning of the second half Needles made many substitutions and the Fresnoans looked better even though they could not score. Prusonovski.

The game was not as close as the score indicates. Statistics show that in actual sustained play the Ignatians were superior. In fact, they gained twice .is much yardage as the Lions. Fumbles were the undermining factor which nearly cost the game. The St. Ignatius touchdowns were made in the first, second and third quarters. Fach time the Saints failed to convert. The fust score was made by Bareilles of St. Ignatius in the opening period after a line-smashing drive nearly the entire length of the field. Barfilles. Hjlfbjck jn thc ncxl quarter two long passes, Bareilles to Olson, coupled with Kleckner’s line plunging, put the Ignatians again in the scoring position. Bareilles recovered Kleckner’s fumble on the goal line and rolled over for the touchdown. The Gray Fog’s twelve-point lead soon dwindled to a one-point disadvantage. The Lions first scored when Joyce, Loyola center, picked up a fumble and galloped thirty yards to a tally. The other, just before the half ended, was effected by a pass, Hoffman to Eckenroth. Eaton converted to put the Lions in the lead. In the second period, Jimmy Needles, St. Ignatius coach, installed a clever cutback play featuring Bareilles and Kleckner. This play gained six and seven yards per try, with the result that Bareilles scored, with six minutes left to play in the third quarter. This five point advantage could not be overcome by the Lions, try as they did. Olson and Carey were proclaimed the outstanding linesmen by Los Angeles papers, while the offensive work of the backfield aces, Bareilles and Kleckner, was commented upon favorably.

The varsity came close to scoring on four other occasions, only to be stopped in the shadow of the Aggies' goal posts each time. The visitors, however, at no time penetrated farther than the Ignatian thirty-five yard line. The Gray I;og took advantage of a "break" for its first score. Brett, Aggies' quarterback, in attempting to punt from his own six yard line, could send the oval only to his own twenty-six yard line. Anderson made eleven yards on the first play for a first down. Bareilles then circled end for seven yards. Kleckner added a yard at center and Bareilles made it first down on the eight yard line with a two yard thrust. Three times at the line netted five yards, and on a lateral pass, Bareilles to Kleckner, the latter scored. Tallman added the extra point and the varsity led 7-0. With St. Ignatius in possession of the ball on the Aggie forty yard line in the fourth quarter, Kleckner passed eleven yards to Bareilles for a first down on the Farmers' twenty-nine yard stripe. A futile stab was made at the line and on the next play Bareilles passed twenty-five yards to Foss, who ran the remaining five yards to a touchdown. Tallman converted. Carroll l oss, substitute end, proved a sensation. Besides recovering a fumble, he made many startling tackles and scored a touchdown to boot. Hanlon also played well, as did Tallman in the line. Bareilles showed that he has great possibilities. His line plunging, end-running, pass-receiving and pass-throwing gave the crowd many a thrill, and a good word for the Frenchman from the scribes. St. Ignatius 0, St. Mary's 13 St. Ignatius met St. Mary's in her game of the season. The contest decided the winner of the Far Western Conference, the Moragans coming out on the long end of a 13-0 score. Both the Gael touchdowns were made in the first half. The Fog eleven held them scoreless in the second half. St. Mary's scored early in the game with a beautiful return of a punt by Boyle to the Ignatian one yard line.

A pass, Stennett to Rodingad, a few line plays, and then Stennett plunged the remaining seven yards foi a touchdown. The team came on the field in the third quarter and fought in a fashion that is characteristic of St. Ignatius teams. The whole third quarter the boys from Moraga were on the defense. In the fourth quarter the ball see-sawed back and forth, both teams fighting hard, but neither threatening the other's goal. The brilliant playing of Captain "Coke" O’Marie, George Olson. Frank Hanlon, Rene Bareilles and Frank Horgan merited mention. St. Ignatius 0, Gonzaga 27 Gonzaga University, with the most finished attack displayed at Kezar Stadium during the season of 1928, defeated St. Ignatius 27-0 before some 6000 fans in the most ambitious game on the Gray i:og schedule. The Ignatians faced an eleven that played perfect football, that seldom made a mistake, was never on the defensive, and did well to hold the Bulldogs as well as they did. Jimmy Needles' Ignations weren't outfought—the)' never are—but that day they were outplayed. Every one of the four Gonzaga touchdowns was fairly earned and the results of a shifting, always moving, hard hitting backfield that knew just what to do and proceeded to do that. A foretaste of the events that were to transpire came in the first five minutes of play. An exchange of punts, fairly even, had followed the kickoff, until Bareilles, charged in a body by the Bulldog wall, was hurried into kicking hastily, Gonzaga taking the first down on its own forty yard line. From that point on a varied assortment of plays that followed each other with bewildering rapidity, Gonzaga launched an uninterrupted march straight down the field to a touchdown. Fnd runs, line plunges, bullet passes all were successful, and all were completed with machine-1 ike rapidity. It may not be amiss to note here, in way of extenuation, that this Gonzaga outfit, the week before, had taken St. Mary’s down the line, 20-7. Bob Kleckner tried desperately to stave ofl the scores by his long distance punting, and Bob did well, but when a punter like Hunting of Gonzaga gets off eighty yard punts, of what avail is a sixty yard kick?

Three first down in a row which advanced them from the seventeen yard mark to the forty yard line, gave the routers a chance to cheer, but when the Fog finally relinquished the ball Hunting punted it back for an astounding distance. The Bulldogs stole the show, but St. Ignatius was not without its contributors to the spectators' amusement. Frank Hanlon at end gave a good performance. Bob Kleckner would have made the fans gasp with his punts—if Hunting had stayed at Spokane. Vin Bray played a vicious game at guard and Captain O'Marie sustained his reputation as "one of the best.” HORGAN. Quarterback THE SEASON The St. Ignatius varsity closed its I92H season with the Gonzaga game, and closed it with a decided improvement which will make it the team to beat next year. Against the Bulldogs, the varsity showed that they were up and coming, and that in the near future it will be among the leading teams on the Pacific Coast. The Gray Fog displayed a brand of football this year that would be a credit to any large institution. The team was composed almost entirely of freshmen and sophomores, and when these boys have obtained a little more of that necessity, experience, they will be hard to beat. With but four or five juniors on the team and no seniors, the team will be intact next year, and with the experience which they have acquired this year they are bound to show an improvement. Next year the Ignatians intend to have a freshman team so that these men will have gained enough experience to be able to make the varsity when they are sophomores. Although they were young and inexperienced this year, the Gray Fog gridders held the leading teams of the West to small margins of victory. The Olympic Club, probably the best team in the country, was held to the narrow margin of two touchdowns. The Olympic Club defeated all their opponents Iasi year, including the two leading colleges of the state, and they were not held to any extent as they were when they played the Ignatians.ST.

MARY'S, winner of the Far Western Con- ■ Frank Hanlon. End "' M- St. Ignatius took its worst defeats at the hands of Santa Clara and Gonzaga, but it is interesting to note that not until the last stages did the Gray Fog crack. This must be interpreted to mean that the varsity lacked only reserve strength, for when the teams were fresh, there was little to choose between the eventual winner and the eventual loser. The team, led by Captain Jack O'Marie, was the leading contender for the Far Western flag, with three wins and no defeats, until it ran afoul of St. Mary's. To enter their finals in their second year of conference football is truly a commendable accomplishment. If the season showed nothing else, it found a captain and field leader in Captain Jack O'Marie, who was touted by radio and press as one of the best centers in Coast football. Those who were conspicuous on the field were: Klcckner, who, playing his first year of college football, won the admiration of various writers who mentioned him as a prospective All-American; Rene Bareilles, of the sophomore class received his just recognition for his work; Vin Bray, at guard, has been the outstanding lineman of the team, with the exception of Captain O'Marie; Hanlon and Olson at ends were the flashiest wingmen in the Conference. They will have one more year of varsity competition. Many others of the team received recognition by the journalists. The Ignatians finished their season with five wins and four defeats, and there are better prospects for next season. This is the best season St. Ignatius has ever enjoyed in the grid sport, at which it has been engaged five years. At the conclusion of the football season, the athletic authorities thought it expedient to withdraw from the Far Western Conference after being a member for two years. It is understood that the college withdrew because of the difficulty of arranging an advantageous football schedule while adhering to the conference's ruling on the number of conference games which must be played.ST.

Coast 'Champions THli SEASON HE St. Ignatius varsity climaxed the greatest collegiate season ever to be enjoyed on the Pacific Coast with the enviable record of having played twenty-three games with the loss of but two contests. The records show that the Gray Fog holds the championship of the Pacific Coast and all other titles attached thereto. The Ignatians not only won the collegiate title but they entered and won the Pacific Association of the A. A. U. tournament that carried a trip to Kansas City and competition in the National Championships. The Ignatians were the beneficiaries of two good breaks at the N. A. U. b»’t S'Vkness and injuries overcame them and they suffered defeat for the second time of the season by the Phillips University of Enid, Oklahoma. The Ignatians drew a bye in the first round and in the second they were the recipients of a default. Jam i s K. Needles, Coach On the Coast the Gray l og went through a season that warranted them the honor of being the best of the West. The college season gave the Ignatian varsity a record of seventeen victories and but one defeat. That at the hands of Santa Clara, whom the Ignatians had previously defeated. Among the victims of the Gray I’og are numbered such teams as : California, the winner of the Pacific Coast Conference, Stanford, Santa Clara, Olympic Club, St. Mary's, and wins over the strong Y. M. I. team coached by Frank Needles, brother of Jimmy Needles, the director of the Ignatians. Led by Captain Ray Maloney, All-American forward, the Ignatians were easily the best of the coast and demonstrated their worthiness to all those who care to doubt their ability. Maloney was easily the most outstanding player on the team by his consistent shooting and especially for his manner of handling the team on the court. Maloney further demonstrated his abilities when at the Nationals where in the one game thatCaptain Raymond Maloney, who received mention as All-American from the officials at Kansas City. Maloney is playing his third year of basketball at St. Ignatius and is the best forward on the coast as well as the best man on the Gray Fog team. He is the first man ever to receive an All-American position in basketball on the Pacific Coast. The IGNATIAN ' 1929 204 he appeared, suffering from an infection of the Ic , played a game that took the attention of the jutiles and he was awarded an All-American mention as a forward. Maloney in the majority of the games was the most prominent player and was a source of inspiration to his teammates. Much credit is due to Coach Jimmy Needles for his production of the team that won the Coast Championship. His efforts in keeping the team in the best of shape and for teaching them all the fine points of the game. Needles will be remembered for his guarding on the Gray Fog varsity about seven years ago, also when he was with the Fbcr Sheehan Clothiers as a pro. Needles is now serving his sixth year at St. Ignatius as head coach of athletics. He has produced in the last two years besides good football teams, two championship basketball teams that have been the class of the Coast. Last year the Ignatians' record showed sixteen victories as against five defeats. The record this year shows twenty one wins and but two defeats. To Mr. Loren .o Malone, S. J., the athletic moderator, is attributed the praise of having taken care of all arrangements along with Manager Jack Patridge, including the financial end of the season and he reports a very successful campaign. Mr. Malone also made the trip Fast and took care that rht boys kept the strictest of training. His work has been very heavy and his manner in treating it was the best that has been done in the past few years. The Ignatians have received much notice from the press and they are well deserving of all the praise and glory that has been heaped upon them. In the local papers they were always afforded a front page story no matter whether they were playing the leading teams or if they were to play a team of lesser ability. When the team left for the Fast and the National Championships, the daily papers ran a story of their doings every day and during the following week they kept on playing up the Ignatians as the Coast Champions. The press bureau was very instrumental in this manner and is deserving of much credit for their work in keeping the name of St. Ignatius on the front page. Mk. Lorenzo Malone S. I.. ModeratorST.

The Broncos, enjoying a full night, played the best ball that they had shown all year, caught the Ignatians on an off-night, and beat them by the score of 26-13. Leahy, Connelly and Sherman were the big guns who finally took the measure of the Ignatians. Leahy played the best game of those on the floor, and was high point man of the game, with four field goals that all went through the mesh from way out near the center of the court. Connelly also was very helpful to the Broncos with his floor game, and accounted for seven points, as did Sherman. For the Ignatians Hale seemed to be the only man in any way having an eye for the basket, and he shot three-field goals. Maloney played a good defensive game, but was unable to connect with the basket.

This was very favorable but for the injuries and sickness encountered during the long journey to Missouri; the list of those unable to play would have resembled one of a local hospital, still they played as best they could, and after receiving a bye in the first round and a default in the second they met the Phillips in the third and were eliminated by the score of 26-17. Capt. Maloney, who later received All-American mention, played the best game of the team and shot 11 points to keep the Ignatians in the running in the first half. The half ended with the Phillips leading 16-15; at the beginning of the second half Maloney shot another basket, to put the Gray Fog in the lead, but here he was forced from the game with a badly fractured ankle and the chances of the Ignatians left with him, for he was the only one able to cope with the boys from Phillips. Maloney played the game with a severe infection on his leg and, at that, proved himself one of rhe best in the country. Piper and Mulligan led the attack for the victors, the former with 13 points and the latter with 6. The score: ST. IGNATIUS FG. F. TL. PHILLIPS FG. F. TL.

IGNATIUS COLLEGE 223 THE SEASON The Gray Fog freshman basketball team followed the lead of its older brothers by winning the majority of its games. The first year men made a record that has not been surpassed by any previous frosh team, winning ten and losing but two of its games. The Freshmen, under the leadership of Jack Patridge, former varsity star, were able to play and win the majority of their games as preliminaries to the varsity games. For the frosh, Malone)', brother of Captain Malone)’ of the varsity, and Garrigan, the other forward, set up an enviable record of being the highest scoring freshmen on the Coast. Jack Maloney. in 12 games, scored 79 points for an average of 6.5 points per game. Elmer Garrigan was second with a total of 69 points to his credit, and an average of 5.9 per game. Captain "Mushy” Ensler displayed throughout the season a very good and well rounded game at the running guard position, and looks like very favorable material for the varsity next year, as do Maloney and Garrigan. Fnsler showed himself to be a capable leader and basketball player. THE SEASON S RECORD ST.

C. '45's by the score of 29-20. Maloney and Garrigan were the shooting aces of this game, and with the guarding of Ensler they had an easy time of it, and breezed through the game. Murphy and Rittori played well in this game. Next the freshmen encountered the S. F. B. Club, and again emerged triumphant, this time by the score of 22-11. Maloney, Ensler and Murphy were particularly brilliant in this contest. The frosh led at half time by the score of 16-4. Following these two games, the freshmen continued the season with winning eight more games and losing but two games. These loses were to the California Freshmen and the St. Ignatius High School. During the remainder of the season the stars that have already been mentioned continued their fine work, while Rittori, Sulik and a few others sprang into the spotlight and gave a very good account of themselves. The loss to the California Freshmen may be attributed to the fact that Jack Maloney was sick and unable to play. His absence from the lineup greatly depreciated the working order and offense of the team. Coach Patridge deserves a vast amount of credit for the manner in which he kept the boys in trim while handling the managerial parr of the Varsity at the same time. Pat has produced one of the best freshman teams ever to be seen on the Coast, and although the team lacked a great deal of height that is very essential to all good teams, they made up for it in the speed that showed itself to the benefit of the team. From this year's team Coach Needles will have a lot of material to bolster up his reserves on the varsity. Among the likely prospects are Jack Maloney, Elmer Garrigan, Mushy Ensler and Lefty Rittori. Maloney and Garrigan are two classy forwards who, with a little more weight and a couple of inches added to their height will be able to compete with the best of basketball players and teams. Maloney seemed to be the better of the two, and appears to be the exact duplicate of his brother, Ray, who was rated an All-American this year by the officials at Kansas City this year. Elmer Garrigan, although a little bit slower than Maloney, is a very good defensive player, and has a good shooting eye. He will be very valuable to Needles next year for a reserve and will be able to take his place without any hesitating. Ensler and Rittori look to be the best of the freshmen for the guard positions. Ensler was captain of the team, and as he is a big boy he will most likely see service next year on the varsity. Rittori, a small boy, is a good guard, and has a better shooting eye than Ensler, though not so tall and heavy. He is very fast and appears to be the best guard on the team. Murphy and O'Dea, the two centers, will be helpful to the varsity when they have had a little more experience. Murphy is the largest, although O'Dea seemed to have a better eye than Murphy.ST.

'29228 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 Coach "Ping” Bodie i 1 Otherwise known as Frank Pizzola, has taken over the job as Baseball Coach at St. Ignatius and has produced a fair to middlin' team in his first year. Bodie accepted the position and after a few days practice stated that although he had some good boys he would be able in another year to turn out as good a team as has been seen on the collegiate coast in some time. Bodie has played some 25 years of professional ball and he is imparting all of knowledge to his proteges. "Ping” is well-known along the coast, having played with the San Francisco Seals and the Missions. Bodie also played several years with the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox. He was sent back to the Coast League where he played but a half season when he once more went up to the major league; this time he was called back to the Yankees for duty. Later he was sold to the Seals and then sold to the Missions; it is now rumored that he will play in the Valley League this summer. THE SEASON The varsity baseball team is now in the middle of its most successful season with the record of four wins and four defeats. Led by Capt. Ray O'Connor the team hopes ro make this the best ever to be enjoyed by St. Ignatius. The Gray Fog has always been known for its basketball and baseball teams and this years baseball team is living up to its reputation. On the varsity this year are such men as Ray O'Connor the hitting outfielder who, besides being Captain of the team is leading the hitters. George Maloney the three-year veteran is holding down the third base and is still doing a good job of it. F.rnest Sulik, a new man to St. Ignatius, is playing center field and is one of the leading batters on the team. Sulik played in the Mid-Winter League in San Francisco and is considered one of the many good prospects, that could make good if they took to professsional baseball playing. "Ping" Bodir, CoachST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 229 As Coach Bodie loses but three of hi? regulars he hopes to get an early start next year and promises to turn out an even better team than he is doing this year. Gene Sullivan, Sam Black, Me-Sorley, Sulik, Maestri and Clecak will form the nucleus of next year's team according to Bodie. Besides these men he will have both Joe Rock and Jack O'Dea, his best pitchers. Martin Reichlin, a veteran from last year's squad, lost to Bodie this year because of his playing varsity basketball, will be playing and pitching the same brand of ball that he displayed fast season. Ray Maloney the veteran catcher was injured playing basketball at Kansas City this year and was unable to catch. He will be ready next year much to the re- Ray O'Connor. Captain and Out field et life of Coach Bodie, as Maloney is the best catcher outside of professional players on the Coast. Bareilles and Kleckner as well as Joe Smith were lost to Bodie because of baskeball activities this season. Ray O'Connor, Captain and Outfielder Varsity 1, Santa Clara 6 With only three days practice behind them, the varsity nine went down to defeat at the hands of the Santa Clara Broncos to the tune of 6-1. The varsity was still weak with the willow and they only collected three hits off Casanova of Santa Clara. The Broncos only got to O'Dea of the Ignatians for eight hits.

Sten-nett was the only obstacle that the Ignatians encountered and he was enough to upset all hopes that the Gray l oggers had of winning the ball game. Stennett collected three for three to maintain a perfect record. He hit a homer, a triple, and a single in as many times at bat. Joe Rock, the lanky pitcher, held the other Gaels well in hand and including the three hits of Stennett allowed only six bingles. Maloney was the hitting ace of the Ignatians with two for four and both of these went for two bases. Maloney, McSorley, O'Connor and Sulik looked well in the field for the varsity.

Both teams broke up an extra inning game by scoring in the ninth. Rock, Ignatian pitcher, besides pitching a beautiful game, got a double with the bases full in this inning and scored three runs, winning his own game.

Here the season was interrupted by three weeks of rain and stormy weather, and the varsity was kept busy trying to keep in shape and to practice when ever the weather permitted. The scheduled games with Santa Clara were called off because of the Broncos claiming a full schedule. St. Mary's and the Olympic Club were obliged to postpone games on account of the rain and they are to be played after the book goes to press. Varsity 7, California 8 PAYNTER. Infield It took ten innings of good and bad baseball before the California varsity could emerge victorious over the Varsity by an 8-7 count. The Bears scored six runs in the first inning on a few walks, wild pitches and a couple of hits intervened here and there. After that Joe Rock settled down and pitched a beautiful game, while Morton, Infield232 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 MMIMIIIMIMMIIIMIIIMIIlMIIUMIIIMIIIMIIMIIIMIDIVlIIIMmVIll his team-mates kept pecking away and finally tied the score in the ninth when Su-lik walked, stole second, and scored when Williamson, Bear catcher threw over second base.

O Dea the Ignatian pitcher, duplicated this and the Clubmen could only touch him for the same number of hits, but the unfortunate part of it was that they were able to get theirs in bunches while the Ignatians could not work together. A true story of the game may be ascertained by the fact that the Ignatians had nine men left on the bases. Sulik with two for three led the hitters of the day, while McSorley played well at short and turned in some nice plays besides catching the last four innings.

'29236 The IGNATIAN - 1929 Varsity Track T earn COACH CHARLEY HUNTER St. Ignatius has again been very fortunate in obtaining Charley Hunter as track coach. Hunter has been coaching the Ignatians for the past three years and has produced wonderful results. Hunter before being signed by the College was coach of the High School and still handles the Olympic Club wingmen on the cinders. Hunter has trained the Ignatians in the past so that they have been gaining more and more prominence on the oval. Walsh. Sullivan and O'Marie are some of his proteges. Walsh and Sullivan are nearing form in the sprints and both should make good times this year. Capt. Jimmy Barron, one of the fastest half-milers on the Coast, is fastly rounding into condition since his return from Kansas City with the Basketball team.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 237 TkeS easom i At the time of going to press the varsity has not as yet engaged in any meets but they are scheduled to meet, in the Sacramento Relays, the best of the West in the form of Stanford and California, the peers of track activities on the Coast. The Ignations will send the strongest team ever to be assembled in San Francisco to the meet and with the hopes of breaking into the score column. Representing the Gray Fog in the weights will be John O'Marie of football fame and Russ Keil. O'Marie although a junior is competing in the field for the first time and hopes to gain some valuable experience. He will be competing with the record holders from Stanford, who have recently broken the discus and shotput measurements. On April 20th the track team will meet ? team representing the University of Nevada, at Reno. With such men as Montague, who will be entered in the 100 yard and 220 yard dashes, Jack Walsh, and Lyle Brown in the quarter mile event, and Capt. Jimmy Barron in the half-mile run, the track men on the squad should make a creditable showing. Then in the field events, Phil Moschella should be a certain scorer in the pole vault, Elmer Beglund and Ernie Loebbeke are good for points in the shotput event. O'Marie if he repeats his performance of the past two years should show up w-ell in the discus. Leonard Bisio and Frank Toso have shown a great deal of ability in the broad-jump. The following week the track men will appear at Fresno in the Annual Relays. In the meet there are several open events aside from the relays, and we have several stars who should place in these events. Ralph Montague will be entered in the 100 yard dash and should prove himself to be the class of the sprinters entered. Berglund and Loebbeke have an excellent chance to place in the open shotput event. In the relay St. Ignatius will be represented in the mile relay and two mile relay events. With several included from last year's team Capt. Jimmy Barron, Jack Walsh, and Andy Sullivan, together with many talented new men the relays teams should acquit themselves creditably. Among the younger candidates on the squad are such well-known stars as Bud Smith, Joe Tinney, Cy Murphy, and Jack Meagher, who are getting valuable experience for the next years varsity and may even see service this spring. Meagher though a small man is a fast sprinter and Tinney is being converted from a sprinter into a quarter mile man. Smith also is a very promising quarter miler. Murphy shows signs of developing into a sprinter.238 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 Varsity Golf 1 cam Left to right: Wji, Breen. Wm. Wilson. Wm. Clark. James McGfe, Arthur Folfy. James Murphy. The golf team under the leadership of Jimmy Murphy has been enjoying a wonderful season. To date they have played the Stanford Varsity and dates are being sought for the California matches that were postponed from February because of mixed dates. Matches are also being arranged with various clubs around San Francisco and a very busy spring is promised the golfers. The match with Stanford shewed the Ignatians that more practice was needed and that in the future they would have to put more pep into their drives and approaches. Breen. Clark and Murphy seem to be the class of the Gray Foggers. Breen and Murphy specialize in driving while McGee and Clark appear to have well rounded and good games.ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 239 V arsiiy X ennis i i The Ignatians netmen are enjoying the best season this year that has been seen on the Ignatian Heights. Of the two matches played the Ignatians while losing have demonstrated that they are gaining in the net world and that next year they will be up among the leading teams on the coast. The team so far has lost to California and Stanford but showed promise in doing so. Matches arc to be played with the Nevada squad on the 20th of April and with St. Mary's close after that. The team going to Reno will include the two ranking players with a possibility of the third man also making the trip. The leading players to date include Lloyd Joseph. Maurice Lopez and Wilson O'Brien. In the Stanford meet; Joseph, suffering from sickness lost to Wheatley by the score of 6-3, 6-3. Hall of Stanford had an easy time with O'Brien 6-2, 6-2. Lopez almost beat Renzel but was eliminated, 6-1, 6-1. The doubles were harder fought and the Ignatians gave a better account of themselves, Joseph and O'Brien losing to Wheatley and Hall, 6-3, 6-1. Lopez and Loustau were beaten by the score of 6-1, 6-3. In the California match the Ignatians came off but little better losing all matches but were not in shape to compete with the boys from the larger institution. McKee of the Bears won over Lopez 6-4, 6-1. Chasseur beat Joseph 6-2, 6-1, O'Brien was defeated by Roogs of California and the Bears Captain, by the score of 6-1, 6-1. Loustau lost the fourth match in the singles by the score of 6-0, 6-1. Shirley Ward was his conquerer. The doubles went to California by the scores of 6-4, 7-5, and 6-4, 6-4. Lopez and Loustau were defeated by Hoogs and Chasseur 6-4, 7-5. Joseph and O'Brien after a hard fight lost to Shisher and Burrel 6-4, 6-4. Matches are also being sought with the Island City and the Olympic Clubs. Santa Clara may be added to the list of the matches as may be the Fresno State Teachers College.240 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 Ignatian Boxing Beam The St. Ignatius boxing team under the leadership of ' Spec” Lyle is making great progress and will be ready for the Sacramento matches by the 6th of April. Those making the trip will be ' Spec” Lyle, Kleckner. Bunner, Beidov, O'Connell, McPartland and a possibility of a seventh man yet to be named. This is the first boxing team to represent St. Ignatius and much cannot be expected. Lyle, who reached the finals of the Olympic Games tryouts last year, is the team's best bet, although Bunner is also rated to place in the Intercollegiate matches at Sacramento. Lyle is at present one of the favorites to be winner in his class. His past reputation makes him so prominent.242243 ST.

(Continued on Page 25ji)F 250 The IGNATIAN ' 1929ST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 251 Tike Brawl i Self-preservation in a great big way was the theme, so to speak, of the annual get-together of the Sophomores and Freshmen—the Brawl. After a welcome rally held in the Auditorium at which they were officially welcomed by President Edward J. Whelan, S. J., the Freshmen were informed that if the)’ would step over to the Ignatian field they would be entertained with an unusually attractive program. Anticipating the nature of the "program,” t|ie Freshmen entered the lists suitably garbed. With a spirit of hollow bravado, and garbed in decrepit sweat-shirts, daubed with red paint, the Frosh huddled and quivered in one far corner of the field. They gave vent to weak little cheers for the class of '32, and in this groveling posture they offered a sorry spectacle indeed . . . merely Iambs for the Sophomoric slaughter . . . Things had been planned after a very definite fashion, but due to some unexplainable psychological element peculiar to small college boys, these well-laid plans "went aggley." It seems that one ambitious Sophomore stole their can of red paint from beneath the very noses of the Frosh. This occasioned an out-burst of very loud whooping . . . ensue one embroglio Soph has stolen paint . . . small fighting; no blood-shed; paint regained at cost of sundry shirts. The boys looked natty and quite nobby in their torn and red-bedaubed cords. Events begin. The sack-race lasted for about twenty minutes, at the end of which time A good thing to remember, both in and out of College: Your linens will last longer when you let us launder them That’s one reason why we are known as— ’The Recommended Laundry” La Grande White’s Laundry Company 250 Twelfth Street San Francisco Phone: MARKET 0916 Suburban Phones: San Mateo M88 Redwood 301 San Raphael 1576 . ....—.................... " ...............------252 The IGNATIAN - 1929 Sophomoronia emerges five laps behind but six points to the good . . . Frosh are bilked out of points. Much incidental blood and flying specks of protoplasm. Tug-O-War now becomes the biggest thing in Foglct lives. They strain and pull and groan aloud to high heaven, but to no avail. They lose, unknown to themselves to the combined efforts of Sophs and Juniors. And now comes the climax of the day s entertainment. The Flag-rush is in order and with the Flag goes victory. On a little knoll at the end of the field, there flutters weakly a small green flag on a very crude flag pole. Round about the Sophs gather with determination, do or-die stuff stamped on their dummish faces. They put their hands behind their backs. Evidently the plot thickens. Yes, it does; the babes are advancing now very warily. Hark! The unmistakable "squoosh" of over-ripe tomatoes break upon the ear. A barrage now greets the on-rushing hoard of infuriated Freshmen. Bedlam proceeds to dethrone pandemonium as ruler supreme at the foot of the flag pole. Out of a storm—a cyclone of flying fists, legs, arms and bodies, a mite of a freshman goes speeding like six scared jack rabbits, with a streak of green clutched to his chest. However, the valiant Freshmen are declared the losers, therefore off came their shirts —"what was left of them, if any"—and with them the belts of the Sophomores. The Gauntlet . . . curtain over a very painful scene, indeed. %EADE 3333333: PORTRA1TEUR CDOCCCOCBOOCCOPCQOCBCBOCPDOCBOOCBCOCCOOCCC Etchings Charco-Broms Miniatures Through Photography i Telephone SUttir 4472 231 Shreve Building San Francisco Corner Grant Avenue and Post Street ST.

The affair was well attended and completely successful. The juniors entered and sponsored the occasion with characteristic individuality, and brought to the annual festival a light-hearted, comradely spirit never before expressed in a serious banquet. The Seniors, the final arbiters, held themselves honored by the tribute of the Class of '30 in the Fiasco de Adios.272 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 HIM IIIMHIIMIIIMIIIMIIIMNMMIHMIlMMIIIi' —H • RELIABLE LOAN OFFICE OBRIEN’S 109 Third Stri:i:t 1600 Haight Street San Francisco HEMLOCK 0998 + I- I ]io .Rotary Drill ' INHERE arc two important and contrasted methods of drilling wells. One of these -i. may lx: termed "churn drilling," while the other is best described as "rotary drilling." Churn drilling originated with the Chinese. It is also known as the "free-falling” tool method, because in this system a heavy cutting tool—the 'bit"—is alternately raised and dropped. The series of blows thus dealt by the bit gradually wears away the rocks and deepens the hole. When the bit is suspended on a cable or rope, the system is spoken of as the "cable" system, or, because of its extensive use in the American oil fields, as the "standard" or the "American” system. It is also called, according to its modifications and the localities where it is used, the "Galician," "Canadian," and "Russian" system. Rotary drilling utilizes, instead of percussive action, the abrasion caused by the rapid and continuous rotation of the bit, which is equipped with sharp cutting edges. This method originated in Texas; it is the method in common use in the Gulf Coast and California fields, and is sometimes called the "California” system. When the cutting edges arc supplied in the form of diamonds set in the periphery of the bit, it is known as "diamond" drilling. In some modifications of this system the actual boring takes place in an annular space and results in the formation of a cylinder of rock in the borehole. This is called the "core," and the system "core” drilling. There are other modifications of this system, depending upon special appliances and tools used. Where the material ro be drilled through is soft, the rotary system is used to far greater advantage than the standard. The practical operation consists of rapidly rotating a column of pipe, at the lower end of which is a cutting bit. In the bit are holes, through which water, with clay in suspension, is sent under pressure. The fluid mixes with the cuttings and carries them up to the surface and the side of the hole. The clay that is held in suspension in the water "muds up" the walls of the hole, prevents caving, andST. IGNATIUS COLLEGE 273 H HENRY WONG HIM, M.D. 1 1 i 1 1 Physician Surgeon JAMES P. McAULIFFE ffi s 1 I I San Francisco California 1 i 1 i causes the pipe to turn more readily. The muddy fluid, because of its greater density, also brings to the surface cuttings which could not be lifted by water alone. It is known as ' mud flush," or "mud slip." The drilling rig for the rotary system differs from the standard rig in the following particulars: It carries no walking beam, bull-wheel, band-wheel, or sand reel; it is composed of a derrick equipped with a "rotary," which is a device for rotating the bit, a "draw works” or "hoist" that is used for raising and lowering the tools and pipe, and an engine house covering the boilers and engines from which the machinery is driven by chain transmission. The rig is also equipped with pumps and proper pipe connections for feeding a constant stream of the mud flush to the tools when drilling. The derrick used for rotary drilling is little different from that used with the standard rig. It is generally of wood, about 86 to 112 feet high, and carries at its summit the usual crown block. The draw works, or hoist, takes the place of the hand-wheel and bull-wheel. It is placed on the engine side of the derrick and consists essentially of two parallel shafts, the line shaft and the drum. It is driven by a chain and clutch which engage on the driving sprocket of the line shaft. The draw works transmits power to the rotary by means of a chain operated from the rotary drive sprocket. The drum shaft is turned by chain and is also driven from the line shaft by the drum drive sprocket. The drum is used to reel up the cable necessary to support and to hoist the drill pipe and casing. The machine used to rotate the drill pipe and permit lowering it at the same time is called the “rotary.” The chief parts are a rigid base and a turntable turned by a system of gears actuated by means of a chain drive sprocket from the line shaft of the draw works. The drill pipe is held through a swivel by the cable, which passes over the crown pulley and around the drum shaft of the draw works. The portion of the drill pipe which passes through the turntable of the rotary is called the "grief stem," and consists of a very strong and durable square section of steel pipe. The center hole of the turntable is of a similar section, and hence the drill pipe is forced to turn with the turntable. A constant stream of water must be circulated through the hole while drilling. This is supplied by pumps which force the water through a hose and the rotary swivel connection and then down the drill pipe. Two pumps of the duplex steam-driven type are274 The IGNATIAN ' 1929 % TUXEDOS O’CONNELL and DAVIS STATIONERS PRINTERS Have you seen our latest Tuxedos?

Muddy water has been mentioned as being more efficient than clear water for rotary drilling; for securing this mud-laden fluid, so-called "mud-mixers” of various types are used. The rotary swivel serves a twofold purpose; it supports the drill pipe and also serves as a water connection. It is suspended by a hook at the end of a cable wound on the hoisting drum and passed over the crown pulley. The swivel is connected to the drill pipe at its bottom, and at the top a sort of uoose-neck pipe serves as the connection for the mud-laden fluid which passes down through the swivel and drill pipe to the bit. Drill pipe is made of iron in sections about 20 feet long. It averages about 2] 2 to 6 inches in diameter and is threaded at both ends for fastening together by means of outside couplings. A large variety of bits finds use for the varying conditions met by the driller. In working with a rotary drill, the driller occupies a position to the right of the draw works, and faces the rotary. The various controls, consisting of a rotary clutch lever which governs the turntable, the throttle and the reversing rod for the engine, the brake-lever for the drum shaft, and the levers controlling the clutches on the line shaft of the draw works, are all within easy reach. As drilling progresses, the driller eases up the brake on the hoisting drum and allows the grief stem to slide through the rotary, thus lowering the drill. Drilling is continued until a depth of 20 feet has been added. The rotation is then stopped, the drill pipe raised until the uppermost joint clears the rotary table, slips inserted to hold the dtill pipe, and the grief stem unscrewed. A new joint of drill pipe is then added to the top of the string, the grief stem reattached, and the slips removed. The drill pipe is then lowered in order to bring the grief stem back into position in the rotary turntable, and the drilling continued. From "Oil Wei! Drilling." By Karl J. Waidj:r, Science, ’30.ST.
