'There is no paradise on earth. If it were ruled by law and order, it would be a place of almost endless natural happiness. But we live in a world ruled by greed and grab, whose right, left and center seek self first with no thought of a second. In this world whose guides are blind to all but material interests Catholic education strives to lead the way to clear thinking by establishing first of all law and order in the mind.
It strives to follow the path of truth through the maelstrom of conflicting theories, to pierce the fog of propaganda and to rise above the swamps of doubt and despair. Unlike other types of education it does not hesitate but rests on the firm foundation of reasonable faith.
You Catholic trained young men will go forth striving mightily to improve the world you live in but cognizant that it will still be a place of pilgrimage, doing your bit to make the world better but not deluded by any Utopian dreams of endless prosperity for all.
You will be conscious that no matter what system may be the fad of the age, the little world of man’s own soul is the all important battleground of the individual. In peace, in war, in material success or failure, in health or sickness, it will be your first consideration. The times are bad but the times are always bad because we have here not a lasting city but a vale of tears. Face these facts bravely and you will find happiness here and hereafter. This is the realism of Catholicism and Catholic education.DEAN
FR. JAMES J. LYONS, S. J.
tt is a pleasure to welcome this appearance of the Annual and to commend the suc- cessful achievement of a cooperative enterprise. Such a pictorial record of campus activities should be a cherished tradition in the stronghold of the Dons. Phe years will greatly enhance the value of this album. Phe spirit of an institution can be gauged by the successful functioning of its various student organizations and of social events which promote family pride and foster those strength-giving friendships which make the University in very truth an Alma Mater. In the Jesuit system of education the things of the mind are rightfully given the place of honor. The University of San Francisco is conscious always of its academic obligation to the Associated Students, but it does not concern itself alone with the things of the mind. It endorses whole-heartedly as well those warmer interests of physical prowess and friendly hearts. The development ot these is considered a necessary complement to academic education. May the Annual be a hardy perennial for the admiration of each successive generation of Dons—may it be a mirror of beloved friends, of familiar scenes and of traditions cherished as the very life-blood of the University which glories in generations of sons since 1855.The FACULTY COMMITTEE
A. R. Bcrti (Adviser). M. K. Quinlan (Chairman). G. G. Dexter (Secretary)
r I 'hi: faculty committee on Activities consisting of three members of the University Faculty was originally conceived and established by Father Albert I. Whelan, Dean of the University, at the outset of the 1934 scholastic year.
The main purpose of Father Whelan in appointing this group was to turn over to it the guardianship, as it were, of the scholastic calendar. With this understanding the committee has since functioned as chief co-ordinating factor for the activities of the numerous student’s organizations. It has of necessity from time to time drawn up rules and regulations governing student participation in extra curricular activities and has exercised a certain amount of control ov er social functions such as the various class dances.
In the main, however, the committee endeavors to guide and counsel rather than initiate procedure, the latter being left to the student body through its elected officers. In the same spirit the committee does not possess any special disciplinary powers but relies normally on the Student Board of Control for the enforcement of its decisions. The Committee serving as it does under the direct supervision of the Dean of the University makes a weekly report to him in the form of the minutes of each meeting.
Normally, any member of the faculty serving on this committee will do so for a period of three years. Fach year, one member will retire and his successor will be chosen by the Dean. The new member will ordinarily act as Secretary during his first year, as Chairman during his second year, and as adviser for his final year.r | 'he purpose of the University of San Francisco is to mould men, and thus form them to serve their fellow men, their country and their God. If we, the editors of the Don, have adequately recorded the seeking of and the fulfillment of this ideal by the men of the University of San Francisco, then gratification is ours.
May this Annual, in the years to come, bring back fond memories of that gallant struggle.History of the
UNIVERSITY OF SAN FRANCISCO
It was on December 8, 1849, that a schooner slipped through the picturesque Golden Gate and dropped anchor in San Francisco Bay. The craft was five days out from Portland, and another day was required before its passengers could set foot on land. Consequently, on December 9, Father Michael Accolti and Father John Xobili, the first of the long line of “San Francisco Jesuits,” landed at the scene of their apostolate. True, Father Eusebius Kino, the Jesuit missionary-explorer, had touched California’s shores in 1700, but his stay was of the briefest, and Jesuit Action in California did not get under way until the advent of the two Italian Fathers, Michael Accolti and John Nobili.
What kind of a city did the Jesuits find? Accolti has left us a vivid description: “Whether San Francisco ought to be called madhouse or Babylon I am at a loss to determine, so great was the disorder, the brawling and the reign of brazen-faced crime on a soil not yet under the sway of human laws.” Into this atmosphere, the two Jesuits plunged, and the results of their initial zeal are evident in the modern University of San Francisco.
Jesuit “Forty-Niners” • Although Xobili and Accolti were the first Jesuits in the city, it was another Italian priest who was to begin the Society’s formal work of education in San Francisco. This was Father Anthony Maraschi, a member of the Turin Province, who arrived in San Francisco on November 1, 1854. It was not long before he was asking the first Archbishop, Joseph Alemanv, O. P., to designate a spot for the proposed college. His Excellency answered with a sweep of his hand towards the vast sand-dunes on which most of the city is now built, and said: “Any place out there!” Market Street, between Fourth and Fifth, then not even graded or open to traffic, was selected as the site. A plain wooden building was the first St. Ignatius’ College. Situated behind the church, it consisted of one large room, and instruction commenced on October 15, 1855, when Richard McCabe was enrolled as the first pupil. After a few months, classes were interrupted for a short time, due to fewness of students, but Father Maraschi was not daunted and used to say: “Here, in time, will be the heart of a great city!”
The need for a new college soon became imperative. Consequently, on May 11,1862, the site of the second church and college was blessed. This was but a short distance from the first unit, and San Francisco’s mighty Emporium now stands on the spot. By December, the new building was complete and proved so attractive that the number of students soon exceeded 450. In 1870, Father Bayma added a three-story, rambling structure—more useful than ornamental—which provided sixteen more classrooms. But already the Fathers were planning to move west with the expanding city, for it was early evident that their present site would soon be located in a busy commercial district.
In 1878, Father Yarsi informed Archbishop Alemanv that Rome had approved plans for a greater St. Ignatius’ College—to be built on “lot 74 of the W estern Addition.” A great throng crowded the new site on Hayes Street and Van Ness Avenue on October20, 1878, as Bishop O’Connell of Grass Valley blessed the cornerstone for the new church and college. On February 2, 1880, Bishop Healy of Portland, Maine, blessed the college, and instruction commenced that very day with 650 students in attendance. (The beautiful new church had been dedicated on the previous day by Archbishop Alemany.) By 1882, the number of students had risen to 780.
Phe history of the institution from 1882-1906 is that of a growing college which registered substantial gains in many fields. The faculty was increased with the rise in student attendance, and St. Ignatius’ College became justly famed as a center of educational activities. In 1905 the Golden Jubilee celebration was held, and felicitations were received from Pius X. An unprecedented period of expansion was ahead when, on April 18, 1906, came the catastrophic blow of earthquake and tire, which destroyed the work of half a century. 'Phe college was ruined, and Father Frieden, then President, sadly telegraphed the laconic words to Rome: “Ignatius fuit”; “St. Ignatius once existed!”
Although saddened beyond measure by the utter destruction of their educational and religious establishment, the Jesuit Fathers courageously devoted themselves to the work of reconstruction. Ground was acquired on Hayes Street, near Golden Gate Park, and Father Frieden and his companions nerved themselves anew to recommence the work of building St. Ignatius’ College. Pioneer days were relived and pioneer hardships were felt once more during these early unsettled years. It was decided to build a “temporary” church and college at Hayes and Shrader Streets, until funds should be forthcoming for a better establishment. However, the college was to occupy its “temporary” quarters for over twenty years, until 1927!
In August, 1927, pioneer days again came to an end with the opening of the new and spacious Liberal Arts Building on Ignatian Heights. Krected in the shadow of the previously constructed church, it was blessed on October 9, 1927, by Archbishop F.dward J. Hanna. Phe Diamond Jubilee of the college was held in 1930, when the city of San Francisco feted the pioneer Jesuits who had so ably trained generations of San Franciscans. At this time, the name of the institution was changed to the University of San Francisco. On Sunday, October 19, Archbishop Hanna celebrated pontifical mass in the athletic field before a large assembly of well-wishers, and the late lamented Cardinal Hayes of New York gave the sermon. In 1931, progress was registered in the addition of classroom and laboratory space by the extension of the west wing.
Jesuit “Thirty-Niners” • On July 16, 1938, Father William J. Dunne succeeded to the presidency of the University of San Fracnisco. He succeeded Rev. Harold Ring, S. J. Latest figures give a total of 935 in attendance at the day and night sessions of the institution. With its foundation work accomplished, the University is fast becoming a power of religious and cultural influence under the Jesuit “thirty-niners.”
It is indeed a far cry from Father Maraschi and his one-room college of 1855 to the modern university of today. Yet the spirit, the aims and ideals of those in charge are substantially the same, and the present day “Jesuits in San Francisco” are proud to consider themselves successors of the early Fathers whose labor and sacrifices are responsible for present-day success. They look forward confidently to the future of the “Hilltop,” placing their hope in God for the future progress of the University of San Francisco—San Francisco's Own University.Contents
ADMIKIST RATION I I
O R G A N IZ AT IONS
1 THE AIM OF JESUIT EDUCATION
qpHE aim of the Jesuit system of training is the development of the whole man, man completely considered: man as a physical, an emotional, an intellectual, a volitional and a religious being. Discipline of these distinctive human powers of the student is the keynote in the process of development. The aim of Jesuit instruction and training is formative as well as informative. Information, the acquisition of knowledge and facts, is emphatically insisted on; but, for the most part, as an instrument employed in a process, not as the final purpose to be achieved. The formation of character, the development of the student’s moral conscience for a life of honor, integrity and usefulness in this world and preparation of his immortal soul for the next life, is given the enormous attention and consideration it deserves.
Modern education too often neglects to administer to the whole man. The Jesuits apply education to the whole personality of the student. Spiritual values are made superior to the over-emphasized money-values of modern education. The Jesuit fathers keep in mind the ultimate object of all education: the eternal life. Preparation for the earthly happiness of the student is stressed, but the eyes of the student are directed upward and not fixed downward.
The frailty of human nature is realized by these eminent teachers. The proper environment for education and circumstances conducive to good mental and moral training are established or created. These great teachers are well aware of the fact that the sea of life is filled with many human derelicts, human derelicts whose capacities, talents and abilities are misguided and misspent. They see these derelicts drifting from port to port, sometimes filled with poor educational cargo. They see these human souls sailing their ships under false banners and dangerous philosophical cargo. They see a world of numerous intellectual and moral diseases, diseases that spread in everwidening contagious circles. They see the materialism, the agnosticism, the scepticism, and the cynicism of secular education biting deeply into the perplexed minds of multitudes of students. They see the cracks in the decaying codes of morality; they see religion taking on an egocentric tinge.
The Jesuits aim to equip their students to fight against, to resist and to overcome these intellectual and moral diseases in the world. They aim to equip each student with a ship filled with precious cargo. They aim to make each student the pilot of that ship, to train the pilot to navigate in troubled waters, to train the pilot to be alert and vigilant of dangerous reefs and barriers, to train the pilot to watch and look to The Supreme God of All who stands as a lighthouse beacon shedding light to illuminate the way.
The Jesuit system of training aims to give the student pilot a rich, useful, eternally true philosophical cargo. This cargo—scholastic phi-losophy is one of the most invaluable products of Jesuit education. It reaches the student how to analyze, how to discriminate, how to distinguish, how to detect the true from the false, how to detect sophistry, how to define and clarify, how to discard the irrelevant. This cargo grounds the student pilot in the Christian beliefs and principles that concern his ultimate destiny, that lay down the rules for his conduct in the attainment of his last end.
Jesuit training aims to produce a well-balanced personality, a well-balanced education, in the student. The one-sided, one-track-mind specialist is not the product desired by the Jesuits. Man, they believe, is a being who possesses latent powers for the pursuit and attainment of many intellectual pleasures. Man, they believe, is capable of greater intellectual achievement, of greater understanding, of more harmonious living.
Phe ideal student that the Jesuit system of training aims to turn out is pretty well exemplified in Cardinal Newman’s Ideal Man:
“He is at home in any society, he has common ground with every class; he knows when to speak and when to be silent; he is able to converse, he is able to listen; lie can ask a question pertinently, and gain a lesson seasonably, when he has nothing to impart himself; he is ever ready, yet never in the way; he is a pleasant companion and a comrade you can depend on; he knows when to be serious and when to trille, and he has a sure tact which enables him to trifle with gracefulness and to be serious with effect. He has the repose of a mind, which lives in itself, while it lives in the world, and which has resources for its happiness at home when it cannot go abroad. He has a gift which serves him in public, and supports him in retirement, without which good fortune is but vulgar, and with which failure and disappointment have a charm. Phe art which tends to make a man all this is in its idea as useful as the art of wealth or the art of health, though it is less susceptible of method, and less tangible, less certain, less complete in its result.”
'Phe Jesuits aim to approach this Ideal Man. However, while aiming to develop all these human attributes and virtues in the student they have in mind the last end of the human being, the most important end, the end to which all other ends are subordinated. So Jesuit training disciplines the mind and will of the student, builds strong moral fibre, develops self-control and volitional habits that teach the student to do what he is supposed to do in spite of any discomfort or pain it may bring.
Thus equipped the student is sent out into the world, fitted to meet the tasks that come before him, fitted to become a useful and loyal citizen of domestic, civil and state society. Into the fields of labor, of business, of professional life, of government and of every phase of human activity the Jesuit student is sent, armed with knowledge and discipline that seeks to ennoble and to benefit human society.
The aim of Jesuit training is deep and wide and embraces the whole man. The world will be made a better place to live in because of it.Wilson Aldridge, S. J. James IJ. Kassel! Augustine K. Kerti

Jpo develop among the students a habit of manly self-reliance and initiative, a sense of responsibility and a spirit of whole-hearted co-operation with the administration in promoting the best interests of the University, liberal new powers of self-government in all extra curricular activities were delegated to the Associated Students by the Reverend President in the spring of 1928.'Thus the University of San Francisco became the first among Jesuit colleges to grant self-government to its students.
The constitution ratified at this time provided for the election of officers of the Associated Students and the establishment of a student executive committee. Supreme judicial power was vested in the Board of Student Control, while all activities were placed under the supervision of the Vice-President with assistance from a General Activities Committee. Provisions were made for Publications, Forensics, and Dramatics Councils, monthly meetings of the Associated Students, elections for officers and of Publication Staffs, and petition for changes in the By-laws and for amendments.
During the past year, the officers of the Associated Students have been: Peter Sexton, President; James Madden, Vice-President; William Carberry, Secretary; and Norton Ilerold, Treasurer.Peter Sexton James Madden

In the elections for the new offices held last year, Richard Stubbs was elected President; Kevin Lowe, Vice President; George Higgins, Treasurer; and Willis O'Brien, Secretary. Probably the outstanding social event of the year was the ever popular Law-Commerce Formal held this year at the new Aquatic Park. The dance proved hugely successful and was certainly a credit to the Kvening Division officers who so ably handled the affair.
Student government in the night school is similar to that employed in the Day school. An Kxecutive Council, made up of representatives from all classes governs the Student Body. The Kxecutive Council meets weekly.Richard Slultbs President

T iftixg minds and hearts to the mem-ory of our beloved University, the Senior Class today stands upon the threshold of an anticipated successful life. With bared heads and misty eyes, the prospective graduates take leave to sing for the last time as undergraduates the revered and endeared hymn:
Hail San Francisco! Hail to thee! Enthroned beside the western sea! Thy storied past shall ever be The theme of loving song.
Unfurl thy banners, Green and Gold, As echoes every hill and vale The homage of our grateful hearts, All hail to thee, all hail!
Let us repeat:
All hail to thee—all hail!

The sophomores, the most versatile class in the University, receive the plaudits of their fellow students for being the backbone of every school organization.
In sports, the sophs supplied half the varsity football team and had five men on the varsity basketball squad. A poll of membership in other clubs and organizations showed the second year men made up fully half of all those who participated in extra-curricular activities.
At the start of the year the sophs lost a disastrous Brawl to the incoming Freshmen but it was not that the frosh outfought their opponents but outnumbered them three to one.
'The next evening the sophs showed that there was no hard feeling, and returning good for evil played host at the annual Freshman Reception.
Highlight of the year for sophomores came on October 12 when the Soph Drag was held at the Lakeside Coif and Country Club. Warren Bingen's Orchestra supplied the music for more than 300 couples.CLASS OF ’42
“ reat things are expected of your class,” declared Student Body President Peter Sexton to the incoming Freshmen last September; and the Freshman Class is not disappointing this prediction.
Organized unusually well and early, the C lass of '42 rolled to an easy triumph over the sophomores in the annual Brawl, which served as their debut to University life. Led by brawl captains Jim Herning and Charlie White, they scored a one-sided 41 4 -l victory.
On the evening of Saint Patrick’s, March 17, the Freshmen under President Jim Herning made their initial social success with the Freshman Fandango. This traditional affair was held at the Oak Knoll Country Club in the Fast Bay. Larry Cannon’s Orchestra provided the music, and the Class of '42 were “wearing of the green" as they swayed to social triumph.
RESERVE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS
IN the fall of 1937 a motorized Coast Artillery Unit of the Reserve Officer’s Training Corps was installed at the University of San Francisco. From an original two hundred cadets the battalion has grown into an enrollment of three hundred and fifty under the guidance of Lt. Col. Frank Drake, C.A.C., Major W illiam Brey, C.A.C., and Major William LaFrenz. Commanding officer of the battalion is Cadet-Major Clarence Alameda; battery commanders include Captains Elmo Mauer, Harold Stark, Charles Breen, and Paul Golden.
The U. S. Army has supplied the technical equipment for the unit. Included in it at present are three hundred and seventy U. S. rifles, two machine guns, a 3 inch anti-aircraft gun, and a 155mm. gun. Transportation facilities embrace a three and a half ton Mack truck and a light runabout Ford. Most recent additions are a plotting room with complete equipment and an adjoining 22 caliber rifle range; both are located in the basement of the Loyola Lodge.RESERVE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS
In connection with the work on the new campus, a red-rock drill field was constructed and laid out in the fields to the rear of the Armory building.
The basic course of two years is compulsory for all freshmen and sophomores. Its purpose is the development of non-commissioned officers through training in the essentials of army leadership and organization. The advanced course, begun last Fall with twenty-two student officers, is planned so as to lead to a commission in the Coast Artillery Corps of the Reserve Army.
For the first time this spring a rifle team of fifteen men was organized by Major I rev and Sergeant 11. 1 lersh to compete with collegiate teams throughout the country. From these fifteen five have been chosen to represent the I niversity of San Francisco in the annual 1 learst trophy matches, the first time the Heights has ever taken part in national intercollegiate competitionR.O.T.C. OFFICERS
'I'he progress of the unit was shown when the 65th Anti-aircraft Regiment gave a demonstration before it on the University campus March 7, 9, and 13th. Inasmuch as the regiment from Fort Scott is but newly organized the cadets were privileged in seeing the latest equipment to be installed by the W ar Department.
THE R.O.T.C. BANDEVENING DIVISION
Thk shades of night lost some of their darkness when two score students brought the lire of enthusiasm to Ignatian Heights to begin the study of the law. Men and women alike came from their daily tasks in the city to begin the unceasing, arduous, strenuous but invigorating march to leadership through the path of the law.
All knew why they were coming to law school. Some found it difficult to explain the motives that prompted them. To say that one came to make himself a more useful citizen would appear too heroic. To say that one came out of pure curiosity would make one appear too intellectual. To say that one came to prepare himself for a better job would sound too ordinary. To say that one came because he couldn't resist family pressure would border on the servile.But they all came. Considerations of more useful citizenship couldn’t escape them entirely. They knew that twenty-six of the thirty-one presidents of these I'nited States had been lawyers. They knew that seventy-one out of their ninety-six Senators were lawyers, and that two hundred and thirtv-iive of the four hundred and thirty-five representatives in Congress were lawyers, and that more than one-half the governors of the states were lawyers. They had learned from history the part that lawyers had played in establishing their country, with twenty-five out of fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence and fifty-nine per cent of the signers of the Constitution drawn from the ranks of lawyers.
If they came to satisfy their hidden curosity they soon found it satisfied upon discovering that the law reached out into every branch of learning ami every field of human activity. This very discovery proved to them, if they had a doubt, that they could render a far more valuable service in their own line of work because the study of law revealed to them the part that their work played in the orderly operation of the community in which they lived.
Consolation was found for those who could not resist family pressure. They had entered upon the profession of argument makers and for them gratuituously to enter upon this field of activity at home would stamp them with the mark of amateur.
’Hie work was begun under the direction of the genial Lewis C. Cassidy, then serving as Dean. The mysterious rules of contracts unfolded by him and the advantages of accepting an offer by mail or telegraph or in person were all weighed. The rules of Civil Procedure were revealed by the dignified William l». Schaefer, and meticulous Sherry Basil Myers impressed the rigors of the Criminal Law upon the neophytes. In his salty Cape Cod manner John D. O’Reilly distinguished contingent and vested remainders and explained the rule in Shelly’s case. The work was completed with a survey of the doings of John Q. Prudence, Caspar Milquetoast, and Little Rollo in the field of Torts.SOPHOMORE
A new year brought changes. The number of students was less. A new Dean was in charge. A feeling of membership in a large family was established. The class participated in the annual dance of the Evening Division at the St. Francis Yacht Club, and the annual dinner at the Clift Hotel where a warm welcome was given to Dean Charles H. kinnane. Noelithia Stubbs, John Maloney, Arthur Slater and John Castagnetto earned a place on the Honor Roll for proficiency in study.
The demands made on Library space and Library facilities by this group caused a new room to be added, where the privilege of smoking and typing could be allowed. The seriousness and the importance of the law had already made its impression!
Some of the brightness of other years appeared dimmed by t he absence of the always colorful Professor Sherry 15. Myers, who had gone to France to continue his studies in the field of Community Property. Pile faculty picture had been much changed. The faces of Lewis C. Cassidy, John D. O’Reilly, Edward D. keil, Harold C. Caulfield were no longer to be seen. In their places were J. Joseph Sullivan, James F. Rice, Richard Sims, August Rothschild and Lee F. Dante.
Phe class continued its fine work in academic achievement and the plaque given for the highest honors in the field of Equity was awarded to Noelithia Stubbs.SENIOR
The race down the final stretch had but nine contenders. Everyone was well qualified to give a splendid performance. Arthur Slagter participated in the first Moot Court held for the evening school in many years. Richard Stubbs proved to be an able and efficient student body president. The night school dance was held in the romantic setting of the new Casino at Aquatic Park, and was part of the Civic Celebration of the opening of the Golden Gate International Exposition.
Noelithia Stubbs was a joint author of a Law Review Article with a member of the faculty that appeared in the Rocky Mountain Law Review. The student body received a visit from the new President of the University, Very Reverend W illiam Dunne. S. J.. and heard an inspiring talk. The President of the American Bar Association, Honorable Frank J. Hogan, paid an official visit and won the acclaim of the entire universt}'. Paul Vallee, head of the State Bar of Calfornia, also gave a talk.
A fine banquet was presented at the Hotel Empire in honor of the new President of the University, and stirring tributes were presented by City Attorney John J. O'Toole, Judge C. J. Goodsell, and John H. Riordan. president of the San Francisco Bar Association.Tt is generally acknowledged that a college student’s undergraduate career should include, besides the scholastic courses, some extra-curricular activity. This principle underlies student life at the University of San Francisco to the extent that students are not only encouraged but expected to supplement class work with an activity.
Opportunities are offered to participate in associations and class functions, athletics, dramatics, forensics, management of sports, music, and publications. While not all are asked to enter into the activities, the student who does not interest himself in at least one should feel out of place in any college.
Through class and general student organizations, the various extracurricular activities are sponsored and directed. The offices of the classes and student association offer students of organizing and executive ability means of assisting in the direction of the undertakings.
Through class committees and offices, general association positions are to be attained by those students who show their aptitude for such responsibilities. While the officers of the student association are generally selected from among the upper classes, there are several association committees offering underclassmen an excellent opportunity to demonstrate their ability in various student activities. Chief among these are the Games and General Activities Committees. These committees are selected from among those students who have evidenced their abilities in class and organization functions.
Class elections are held during the first month of the fall semester; general association elections during April and May.' .afR MAUC y,,.

HME -VSINTRA-MURAL SPORTS
TV he participation of all students in some form of athletics has been the aim of the intra-mural sports program, which during the past year has attracted wide interest. Approximately two hundred students were enrolled in the various sports.
Directing the competition among the various campus organizations was the Intra-Mural Athletic Hoard, comprised of Maurice Carmody, chairman, Harry Katz and Arthur Zief, acting members, and Student Body President Peter Sexton, member ex-otffcio.
Competition in the fall embraced handball and six-man touch-tackle football. A novel innovation was the “Carmody Coca-Cola” presented to the outstanding players of each week. Basketball took over in the winter, with the games being played in Kezar Pavilion. The Spring saw enrollment for baseball reach tlie point when two leagues had to be organized in order to accommodate all the entrants.
Members of the winning clubs in each sport were presented with medals by the Intra-mural Board. To even' player, however, went the enjoyment and thrill of stiff competition and momentary relaxation from the cares of schoolwork.A hit?
Ilandy " Hinds ...The FRESHMAN BRAWI
X7ith a dash of egg and a spray of tomato, the Frosh-Soph Brawl officially ushers the newest class into the University each September. The traditional climax to a week of sporadic clashes between lower classmen, the Brawl cools all desire for further conflict very effectively. Paint begins the adornment of the Frosh and it forms a sort of shield for the missiles contacted in the final event, the flag Rush.
This year the Sophomores were led by Kd Dullea and the frosh united behind co-captains Jim Herning and Charlie White. A beautiful green paint job on the Frosh served to distinguish the two sides at the beginning of the day, but smearing resulting from the Ball Rush made recognition of individuals impossible after the first event. The Freshmen were successful in rushing the huge ball over the Sophomore goal and scored the first point thereby.
The field events fell to the onslaught of the freshmen except for a lone Soph victory in the Sack Race. The score stood at three to one when both sides removed to Lone Mountain for the climactic event, the Flag Rush. Far up on the slope the Freshman green hat floated atop a greased pole, the pole itself surrounded by the militant Sophomores with ammunition of every variety of odor and color close at hand. Down below the Freshmen spread slowly upwards on the sandy expanse between the two forces. The battle began and raged around the pole. Driven farther up by superior forces the Sophs made forays to clear the attackers from the pole when the hat was endangered. The air was tilled in all directions with flying foodstuffs. Finally just before the time limit ended the combat, Tom Rovere climbed the now sanded pole and retrieved the (ireen I lat, symbol of Freshmen freedom from further surveil lance.
The Block Club led by John Swanson and Alec Schwarz acted as committee for conducting the affair.COLLEGE
Ane of the most active and widely acclaimed organizations on the campus, the College Players rank among the foremost Little Theatre groups in the Bay Region, t nder the direction of James J. Gill, recognized throughout the Pacific Coast for his dramatic achievements, the Players operate without officers and choose their members solely on merit.
During the dozen years of their existence as a group, the Players have established themselves firmly in San Francisco dramatic circles, sending members on to success in radio, stage and screen. This year four outstanding productions were presented.
'The season opened in September with “The Night of January 16th,” a mystery-comedy set entirely within a court-room during a murder trial. A jury was selected from the audience. In the leading roles were Agnes-Marie Lyman, Owen Brady and Al Maggini. Prominent in the supporting cast were Jack Bruton, Barbara Spedick, Norman 11am-mersly and James Herning.
I he smash hit of the season came in November when “Father Malachv’s Miracle” was produced for the first time outside of New Y’ork. Packed houses and banner press notices were won by this “serious comedy-satire” on “so-called religious ideals,” prejudice and bigotry. In the title role was alumnus Jack Movies of National and Columbia Broadcasting fame. Ably supporting him were Ruth Peterson, also of radio, Al Maggini, Jim Herning, Charles Breen, Kd Boessenecker, Al Coenan and Ray O’Brien in a cast of thirty-four.
In February “Louder Please,” a satire on Hollywood press agents, was brought to the boards. Jack O'Rourke and Virginia Lohman carried the leads. Jack Sullivan, Norman Hammerslv, Geraldine Amos. Don Helbig, and George Whelan were outstanding in minor parts.
Responding to many requests, the Players rounded out their season in April with “Death Takes a Holiday,” stage and screen triumph of five years ago. Star of the play was Al O’Dea.THE PLAYERS

The varsity debate squad began the 1938-39 season under the leadership of a new faculty adviser, Mr. Frank Silva, S. J., who succeeded Mr. A. Russell Berti who withdrew after leading the group for several years. The Forensics Council selected Norton Herold, the winner of the V. M. I. Oratorical Contest, to till the post of Student Manager.
At the tryouts for positions on the varsity squad in September, Jack O’Brien, Norman Hammersly, David Marcus, Thomas Waters, Richard Fenton and Richard Keegan were chosen to till the vacancies left by the graduated seniors.
During the fall season the varsity team engaged in debates with San Francisco State, San Jose State, Saint Marys, Santa Clara, California, Stanford and several non-scholastic organizations.
In September John J. O'Rourke competed as the U. S. I1', representative in the twelfth annual Sullivan Memorial Oratorical Contest, with speakers from Loyola, Santa Clara, The University of San Francisco and Saint Marys College. Our representative, John J. O’Rourke was awarded the prize as best speaker.
The month of March saw varsity debater Herold emerging victorious in the annual V. M. I. Oratorical Contest. In the latter part of March Mr. Silva, S. J., accompanied two senior debaters, Norton Herold and James Mace in a trip to Ix s Angeles where they met the University of Southern California, The University of California at Los Angeles, Loyola University, Occidental College and Whittier College.

A s tin-: oxi.y campus organization restricted to Freshmen, the Gavel occupies a unique position in student affairs. Designed to train First Year men for varsity debate competition, the Gavel has proved unsually successful since its inception in 1932.
This year the Gavel engaged freshmen teams from Stanford, Santa Clara and Saint Mary’s, as well as the varsity squads from San Francisco and Sacramento Junior Colleges. The varsity system of home-and-home debates with no decision was followed. Blessed with an abundance of material, the Freshmen were able to employ fifteen debaters in some ten intercollegiate contests.
Regular weekly meetings were held each Monday evening, accompanied by intra-society debates. In addition to their forensic activities the debaters sponsored such social affairs as a post-Lenten banquet, an outing at Alma, and swimming and roller-skating parties.
President Eugene O'Meara headed the Gavel, being assisted by Vice-President Bob Christian and Secretary Joe Servente. The moderator was Mr. 1 larry Corcoran, S. J., who succeeded Mr. Francis Silva, S. J., in February.The FOGHORN

qpHE opening of the fall semester is signalized as official by the first “■ issue of the University newspaper, “The Foghorn.” The staff elects a new editor each semester and begins work immediately on returning to school. Thus Mr. Norman Hammersley, selected to succeed W illiam McW alters, spring term editor, started immediate work gathering news for the initial appearance of The Foghorn. Recounting the events that marked the freshmen initiations and the other matters connected with the opening of the year’s activities, the paper soon gathered a capable staff to replace the graduated members; routine publication followed.
The semester’s work was noteworthy and received a word of praise when the staff was the recipient of a letter of commendation from Mr. William Stern of the Special F.vents Department of N. B.C., on the excellent context of the Foghorn. An outstanding edition was issued in conjunction with the gridiron clash with Saint Mary’s. 'The Sports Department under Richard Blake was assisted by the editor and the whole staff in publishing a special sports edition.
After the spring vacation new editor elections brought Mr. John J. O'Rourke into the position, succeeding Mr. Hammersley. Mr. O’Rourke, senior in the College of Liberal Arts, functioned as Business Manager for the Publication for the past three years.THE 1939 DON
( entered around the publication of an annual is the activity of a student body, for the annual is the memory of a college year preserved in writing. This issue must take up the thread that was dropped for a year when no publication appeared in 1 38.
Once assured that a representative book would appear, the student body purchased options in numbers that insured widespread distribution. President Peter Sexton selected three men to guide the Annual to the presses. Laurence O’Toole was appointed Kditor-in-Chief; Edward McGuirk as assistant, and Stephen Esposto received the responsibility of the Literary Editorship. The photography was handled by Alfred Maggini and his able assistants, James Duane and Marcel Vogel. A group of active aides were used to take care of the multitudinous duties that arise in publication. The very important work, in gathering advertising that would defray a great part of the expense of the lxx)k, was consigned to the care of Frank Lawson.
Fhe result of the combined efforts of these men and many others whose work was less responsible but no less important, is a tribute to the leadership of the student officers who made it possible, and to the sincere efforts of those in charge, who wished to assist the Jesuits in making the University of San Francisco better known for its culture and its learning.quarterly
SAN FRANCISCO QUARTERLY •
WORLDS — FAIR
•04. vj . • |M IIM • HVUIII |
M iNDFULof tlie fact that the written word is the best means of expressing views upon philosophy, literature, politics, and economics, the faculty and students of the University have presented the “Quarterly” to a wide audience as the expression of thoughtful study in those various fields. Its purpose has not been controversial but rather to “sene for delight, for ornament, and for knowledge”; that the readers may And the pages more interesting and instructive with each issue.
The Quarterly is edited by the officers of Kappa Lambda Sigma and the editorial board for the year consisted of three men, Stephen Fsposto, Victor Lontilio, and James Mace. Rev. James J. Lyons represented the faculty in their cooperation with the students in publication of the booklet.
A World’s Fair Kdition of the Quarterly appeared in March, published to do honor to San Francisco’s Ciolden (late International Imposition. It was dedicated to the Aladdin palaces that have arisen on T reasure Island within the Golden Gate. The varieties of color and the shifting kaleidoscope that frames San Francisco were translated by the written word.PUBLICATIONS ST A F FS
The popular Don Debonair went formal to some of his dances this year. Early in the fall the Sophomores arranged and presented the traditional “Soph Drag” in the beautiful surroundings of the Lakeside Country Club. 'The contrast of the affair to the frolicking Freshman Reception in the University made dance history.
The Treasure Island dance and the Block Club Barn Dance were exceptional tho informal; but the Freshman Fandango returned another year to combine beauty, soft lights, crowds, and late curfews as the social highlight of the year. In the rolling hills across the Bay the Oak Knoll Country Club welcomed its first “Don" dance.
Don Debonair was sad and glad at the Junior Prom; he enjoyed himself but he gathered, united, for the last time. It was the last dance attended by the Senior class together with the underclassmen and Don Debonair had a tear in his eye. The social calendar was about to close.'
C aint Ignatius College was but an infant, that October in 1865, when the Saint John Herchman’s Sanctuary Society came into being. 'Today it remains the single direct connection between the University of San Francisco and the College Church of Saint Ignatius.
The Sanctuary Society is among the most prominent in the University, and holds regular meetings. It takes part in all sports and other intra-mural activities.
Mr. W ilson Aldridge, S. J., serves as moderator. Student officers include: Prefect, William W hitfield; Secretary, Vernon Gates.
Strictly an acolytical society, it serves in the observance of the Church’s rites and ceremonies. It has as its functions the serving of mass every Sunday and I lolyday, and on important occasions. The members assist at the annual student retreat, all student religious services and exercises, and at the Baccalaurate services at the end of the school year.SODALITY
ne of the prime aims of a Catholic University is a well rounded 'education balancing the spiritual with the material development. Thus it was that one of the first acts of the founders of this University was the organizing of a Sodality of Mary, which was revitalized this year under Father McGrorey, the Dean of Men.
The Sodality Functions through six committees the Committee of Mary, the Eucharistic, Apostolic, Social, Publicity, and Membership committees. Each committee is comprised of a scholastic and three sodalists acting under the supervision of the officers: Frank Lawson, Prefect; Joseph Martinelli, Vice Prefect; and John Kent. Secretary. Each month the sodality holds at least one business meeting, one spiritual meeting, and gathers for an informal night meeting.
The activities fostered by the sodality have been numerous. Beautiful drapes were procured for the University Chapel and Stations of the Cross, in miniature, placed on the walls. The Stations were the gift of John Swanson. During Lent morning Mass and noon rosaries were sponsored in the student chapel. Every weekend two students were sent on retreat to El Retiro. Many other activities of a spiritual nature gave the student body a greater opportunity for increasing piety and spiritual development.
Thus does the Sodality of Mary minister to the spiritual aspect of College life. Due in great part to the inspiring work and advice of Father McGrorey and Mr. Ralph Tichenor, S. J., its efforts have been expansive and well rewarded.PRESIDENT’S CLUB
Am: of tin: youngest organizations on the Campus, the President’s 'Club was founded in 1935 by the Reverend Father Dean, James J. Lyons, S.J. It lias as its purpose a course of action which will be for the best interests of the .University, its activity and administration. This club considers all matters proper to student activity, and maintains a suggestive power in the operation of student government. In composition the group consists of the student officers, class presidents, organization presidents, and the editors of the various publications.
Under the chairmanship of Student Body President Peter Sexton and Moderator Father Lyons, monthly meetings have been held and active progress has been realized in the promotion of student interest in activities. Reports from the different organizations are considered and solutions to difficulties formulated. Participation in extra-curricular work by the general student-body is encouraged thru the medium of the President’s Club.KAPPA LAMBDA SIGMA
T'hk oldest honor fraternity on the campus is the boast of Kappa Lambda Sigma, founded first in 1871 and reorganized on I)ecember 5, 1926. It is a literary society with membership restricted to upper division students, who have distinguished themselves for interest and excellence in the study of English literature.
1'he society in general aims to foster the study and thorough treatment of the outstanding figures in modern thought and literature. In charge of the organization were Stephen F.sposto, Archon; Victor l$on-tilio, h'parchon; and James Mace, Scribe. Acting as moderator was Professor Daniel O’Dooley of the English Department.
The main activity of Kappa Lambda Sigma has been the editing and publishing of the San Francisco Quarterly, a consensus of the literary and creative effort of faculty and students. The Quarterly appears thrice annually in Fall, Spring and Summer.PI DELTA PI
Tin: lower division honor society, Pi I)elta Pi, took on a new stature this year by editing and publishing the best literary efforts of its members in “The (larret". This was the most ambitious achievement of the club in recent years. Fluctuating in personnel with the number of underclassmen interested and talented in the writing field, the membership reached twenty-five under the leadership of Frank Courtney, President for the term. Mr. Coleman, S.J., acted as moderator and was very active in abetting the efforts of the club with advice and literary assistance.
I'he meetings of the organization in the early part of the year were taken up with discussions of prominent authors and lectures on them by well known authorities. Financing and editing “The Garret” received special attention until Editors Jack O’Brien and Frank Courtney distributed finished copies to the members in February. The latter part of the term was used to promote interest among the student body in styles and authors of contemporary literature.ST. IVES
The cultural and professional study of law is the purpose of the Saint Ive’s Law Club. Thus, this year was a successful one under the able direction of the club’s moderator. Professor A. Russel Berti. and its President, James Y. Mace.
Twelve seminar meetings were held for discussions on various phases of jurisprudence. Distinguished speakers from the bench and bar were presented; social gatherings followed each session.
Highlight of the year was the dedication of the Saint Ives window in the College Church. This paralleled the memorial set up at Treguier, the birthplace of the saint, by the American Bar Association of lawyers of the United States. The Club's window is the only stained-glass representation of St. Ives in this country.
Phis fraternity has been in existence since 1934, when it was founded by Professor Berti. The fifth anniversary of the club will be celebrated with a banquet at the Golden Gate International Exposition on October 15th.THOMISTS
■p KDiCATED to St. Thomas Aquinas, the “Angelic Doctor” of the thir-A teenth century, the Thomists are a philosophical society organized among the upper division students interested in Philosophy. The society concerns itself chiefly with the Philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas. The spread and development of this philosophy, in the turmoil of confused thought so prevalent today, is outlined and discussed.
Outside the University the Thomists are well-known for their meetings with students of other universities in formal and informal discussions of vital problems in modern philosophy. The most successful meeting of the year was held at the University of California where students of both institutions compared the metaphysical and ethical doctrines of Plato and Aristotle in open discussion.
The campus gatherings of the society were brightened by the presentation of guest speakers on various subjects concerned with philosophy. 'The membership did honor to their patron by attending mass in a body at the Carmelite Chapel on the feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas, March 7th.
President Steve Ksposto, Vice-President Edward Jacobsen, and Secretary Raymond Roure presided at the semi-annual banquet held at the end of each semester. Dr. Arthur I). Pearon of the Department of Philosophy acted as moderator.11
kappa alpha phi
Steadii.y going to the front as one of the most active organizations in the school has been the Kappa Alpha Phi. Boasting of its large roster, its high scholastic rating, and its years of service, this honor fraternity has as its President, Ted Wurm; Vice-President, Frank Duinmel, and Secretary-Treasurer, William Partmann.
'Phis group is comprised of lower division honor students in the Kconomics curriculum. Besides regular business meetings, discussions of the status of the club, and participation in the various intra-mural sports, the Kappa Alpha Phi held public lectures every other Wednesday during noon hour. Ciuest speakers were presented to the club members and visitors, representing every field of endeavour. Included among these were illustrated lectures on the World's Fair, the Modern Trend in Railroad Transportation, and many others.
Another constructive move of the group was the donation of many new accounting and commercial volumes to the University library.BIO-CHEM
npo maintain tlu traditionally high level of scientilic endeavor at the University, the Bio-Chemical Club was founded as an extracurricular society in 1923. It has as its specific purpose the expression of individual achievement in selected fields of study.
This year the club’s officers were President, Klmo Mauer; Secretary, Cliff Jensen, and Treasurer, Cyril Coenan. Moderator is Professor Ciorman of the chemistry department.
The Bio-Chemical Club held regular bi-monthly meetings, and presented numerous lectures by various personages, both faculty and alumni, prominent in this field of study, and by members of the club. The lectures were mostly of a scientific nature and were well received.
This group sponsored representative entries in all intra-mural sports and took an active interest in all school functions.The WAS MANN CLUB
T'hk Wasmann Club is an organization to foster a spirit of lively interest in the problems of Biology and Science. It strives to imitate the zeal of Father Erich W asmann, S.J., for scientific discovery and the increased knowledge of scientific methods.
The members engage in varied activities for they have many interests. Most important is the publication of the “Wasmann Collector”. Printed and bound for the first time this year the booklet contains articles by eminent men in fields that are of direct concern to the studies of the membership.
Aside from the “Collector”, the Club has regular bi-monthly meetings for discussion and for the presentation of prominent authorities as guest speakers. A number of subjects were thoroughly explained for the members and valuable advice given to those who are preparing for medicine as a profession.
The Club has gathered a fine collection of terinitophilous and myr-mecophilous insects and another of marine invertebrates. These are used in the Biology Department of the University.
An active alumni and a distinguished honorary membership have made the club well known in scientific circles outside the University proper.The MARASCHI CLUB
The Italian influence on the City of San Francisco is reflected by the social and cultural organization on the University Campus, I'he Maraschi Club. With a large membership drawn from those of Italian descent among the students, the group does not restrict its membership to such a qualification but strives to interest one and all. The Club is associated with the Salesian Boy’s Club that has representatives in most of the local universities and colleges. This association keeps the University group in contact with these similar clubs and all unite at a yearly convention to discuss their progress in the various fields of endeavour.
The Convention last year was given at this University and will be repeated this year at the University of Santa Clara. In attendance will be Italian organizations from California, San Francisco Junior College, San Francisco State, Saint Mary’s, The S. F. College for Women, and many others.
The Maraschi basketball team from the University had a very good showing in the Salesian League ranking third in the final standing. Mr. Branchi, the moderator, kept the members interested in Italian Art, Culture, and History by the presentation of guest speakers on phases of these subjects.
Dino Orlandi directed the Maraschi club, assisted by Edward I)ap-ello and the proceedings were recorded by Secretary Salvador (iug-lielmo.The DON QUIXOTE CLUB
A group of students, studying the Spanish language, banded together in 1936 to revive interest in Spanish culture and speech. The atmosphere of the San Francisco Don was to be cultivated that the heritage of the University from the old California Dons might not be neglected. Since that time most of those registered for the study of Spanish have joined the Don Quixote Club.
Noted for its line baseball team, participating in the intra-mural league, the club has time also for serious interests. During the year the members were addressed by Father Muez, a Spanish priest who has served in his duties in the war lines in Spain. Several of the South American Consuls stationed in San Francisco were kind enough to appear as guest speakers.
Mr. Brill of the Spanish Department acts as moderator for the organization. George Corona was selected as President for the term and Norton I lerold held the position of Secret ary-Treasurer.PHILHISTORIANS
I 'iii: university of San Francisco has always specialized in the art of public speaking. One of the chief means for promoting this activity is the Philhistorian Debating Society.
The Philhistorians pride themselves on being one of the oldest organizations on the hilltop. Year after year they have spread the name of the University far and wide by the ability of its orators both at home and on debating tours.
The year 1939 has been outstanding in so far as debating is concerned. Debates on vital issues were held at the bi-weekly meetings of the members. T his year the Society was under the guidance of . lr. Frank Silva, J S., who played no small part in the success the Philhistorians enjoyed during the year.
Ernest Emmons presided at the meetings as Chairman.INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB
The widest sphere of activity of any organization on the campus is the claim of the International Relations Club, re-established in September, 1938, with twenty-five new members and with Professor P. Carrico as Faculty Advisor. W eekly meetings were held throughout the year, during which open forums were held on international politics, or discussions of outstanding and popular topics of international significance.
During the year many prominent speakers having been presented, including among others, the Countess Xostitz, on the Spanish situation, Mr. Luis Dieguez, on the Mexican Oil case, and the consuls of several of the South American Republics, the latter in keeping with President Roosevelt’s expressed desire for furthering relations between North and South America.
Early last semester the group attended the regional convention of Bay Area International Relations Clubs held at the Dominican College in San Rafael. Rev. Peter M. Dunne, S. J., chairman of the University department of History, addressed the assembled groups from the San Francisco College for W omen, Dominican College and the University of San Francisco.
The President of the IRC is Owen Brady; Vice-President, Raymond Roure; Secretary, John Coyne, and Treasurer, Robert W’ardell.CHESS
This Club, organized in the University to bring together those students interested in the intricacies of Chess, so popular among men with a bent toward concentration and detailed planning, is not large but very active. Divided into a varsity and freshman chapter, both groups engage in friendly matches among themselves. Kspeciallv in the freshman group there is an endeavor to interest and teach new players that a more widespread competition might be obtained.
Matches with outsiders were arranged for the varsity and in competition with the Spanish Chess Club and the California University Chess Club they had a modicum of success.
The Club engages in the Intra-mural league sports and makes a very representable showing not in keeping with the general “Greybeard” conception of the chess player.
The tournament to determine the champion of the game in the University showed the club president, George L. Corona, to be the best as well as the most active of the Chessmen.GLEE CLUB
A i.most a tradition on the Hilltop, the Glee Club has as its presi-dent, Victor Bonfilio, as Vice-President, Tom McKittrick, and as Secretary-Treasurer, Edward Dolan.
Early in the first semester the group inaugurated its activities by appearing before the banquet of the American Bar Association. A little later it sang for the Japanese Mission Society. Following these were performances at many functions; notable was an appearance in a program at the Civic Auditorium before some ten thousand people.
The hard work and rehearsals of that semester produced a concert worthy of their efforts. This concert comprised the short musical narrative, “Cleopatra”, and the rendering of several classical and popular selections. It was the highlight of the year’s activities.
'Fhe club sings at the services during the annual retreat and frequently at Masses throughout the year. Its able director is Mr. Leo Havorka.STAGE CREW
A necessary assistant to the college Players but a distinctive entity, the Stage Crew functions behind the scenes at all the activities carried on in the University Auditorium. A small number of students interested in stage effects, lighting, and scenic illusion form the Crew, which is a responsible part of the University. In its care is the back stage area and everything used in stage work. The success of a play may often depend on quick response by the members to cues for lights, sound effects, and scenery arrangement.
The Crew is not a chartered club but directly organized under faculty jurisdiction and carries out the orders of the Stage Director, Mr. James Gill. Stage Managers, successively, were Fred Stephens during the fall and Jack Lightbody in the spring. Each occupied the position as Chief Electrician before taking full authority.
The most ambitious stage effects were created in conjunction with the fall production, “Father Malachy’s Miracle” as each performance required four complete scenery changes.BLOCK CLUB
The year 1938-39 was a banner one for the Block Club of the University. Under the capable leadership of its president, John Swanson, the organization fulfilled the hopes of Wally Cameron and Russ Kiel who revived it in 1929. Secretary John Gurnee was kept busy corresponding with athletic alumni and recording the efforts of the club to foster a greater U. S. F. program. For the first time complimentary tickets were actively distributed to the lettermen graduating within the last four years. After the football season had swelled the membership to some thirty, a dinner was arranged for all the former athletes whose names have carried far in the prowess of the past in conjunction with the annual football dinner.
The club sponsored a “return to the land” dance in February and filled the school hall with all manner of fowl, foolishness, and farmerettes. The whole membership took part in arranging the affair, guided by Miatovich. Its success bids fair to make it traditional with the school.
Composed of men who have been awarded letters or blocks for participation in major sports at the University, the club functions as a leader in the promotion of school spirit. Its members are charged with the duty of usher at the church functions and their colorful sweaters mark their presence about the campus. Their moderator is Coach George Mai ley.CIRCLE BLOCK
C implementing the work of the Block Club is that of the Circle Block Club, composed of Dons who have received circle “SF” letters for active competition in such sports as soccer, rugby, crew, tennis, golf, and various other minor sports.
Members of the Cirle Block Club augment the work of the Letter Society in most functions of the University and take part in ushering or otherwise furthering the interests of the University. The prime objective of this organization is to advance the interests of the student body in the minor sports program, as well as to build up a representative group of competitive athletes.
The Circle Block Club has as its president, William Herbert; Vice-President, Peter Sexton; Secretary, Paul (lolden, and Treasurer, William Houston.

THE GAMES COMMITTEE
7 itii an explicit understanding of the new “life” that has gripped the I’niversitv of San Francisco and especially its football team, the Games Committee operated for the past year in the interests of the student rooting section. Faced with the task of maintaining order and spirit among those assembled at the games, the committee served an end which has brought comment and compliment from the sports minded populace of the Bay Area. Chosen from among the four classes, the twelve members applied themselves industriously to assist in bringing forth a spirit that has been unparalleled in the history of sports on the Hilltop. Although the results must necessarily be relegated to its proper source, the general student-body, still the Games Committee must be credited with bringing forth that enthusiasm so typical of a C. S. F. man. This it did by making a compact group of those attending the contests and assisting the yell-leaders in the promotion and execution of yells and arrangements.
Because it lacks its appropriate place in this publication, mention must here be made of the enthusiasm and spirit which crowned our close contests with the Saint Mary’s and Santa Clara varsities. No moral victory could be ours this past season; we desired no moral victory. Instead, we received a triumph far greater than mere temporary success; we were the recipients of a recognition that shall forever mark Don contests. Favorable remarks were everlastingly in praise of our rooting section. “Glorious in victory, brilliant in defeat,” was the expression predicated of our University.
So, compliments to this year’s Games Committee the cornerstone has been laid; your work has been appreciated. To those of the future, may success be always yours.JENSEN OLOONEV PLATO
“All right men, let’s spell it, and make it loud show those men out on the field that we’re behind them all the way.”
Thus constantly and with untiring ardor Joe O'Looney and his assistants, Cliff Jensen and (ieorge Plato, exhorted the Don Rooters throughout the football and basketball seasons.
Results speak for themselves, and the spirit of the Don Rooters as displayed at these games, is the final indication of the hard work and great ability of the Don yell leaders.
In moments of victory the heart of the rooter swells and his voice rings forth in spontaneous exultation. But in moments of defeat when the victory seems difficult or impossible to attain, the yell-leaders must rally the courage of the rooter and revive his fallen spirit. That the Don rooters were never low in spirit, even in the face of defeat, is a tribute to the team, to the rooters and. most of all, the yell kings.U. S. F. 31

Turning on a vicious ground and .aerial attack, the Dons opened their season with a crushing 31-0 victory over the St. Mary’s of Texas Rattlers before a first day-crowd of 15,000 fans at kezar Stadium.
Cliff Fisk, Marv Mosconi. A1 Braga and Art McCaffrey slashed and passed their way to five scores as the linemen led by Blase Miatovich, Tom Rice, and big Dante Benedetti tore great holes in the Rattlers' farward wall.
Cliff Fisk culminated a 60 yard first quarter drive by smashing over tackle from nine yards out. The second touchdown featured two 15-yard passes from Man Mosconi to A1 Braga. Mosconi raced aroun dend for the score. The first half ended with the Dons on the long end of a 12-0 score.
The Hilltoppers came roaring back in the third quarter to tally three more times. Content with this lead, Coach George Mallev called off his regulars and substituted second and third stringers.
A1 Braga drove over from the 11 yard line on a weak side reverse while Cliff Risk made his second touchdown of the day by pile-driving through left guard from six yards out.
I he last score came in spectacular fashion when Art McCaffrey uncorked a perfect strike to Rod air in the corner of the end zone. Knrico Bianchi converted for the extra point.V. S. F. 20
It was “A1 Braga Night” under the arc lights of Seals Stadium as the Dons whitewashed the Cowbovs of I lardin-Simmons, Texas, bv the tune of 20-0 before a crowd of 19,000.
Braga scored three touchdowns, one after a 70 yard ramble and the other two on short passes.
Taking a reverse from Fisk, Braga shot around his own left end, slithered out of the arms of three tacklers, and behind beautiful downfield blocking by Charley Kreniesec, Tom Rice and John L. Sullivan went all the way. Man Mosconi added the extra point.
After an exchange of punts late in the second period the Dons took the ball near midfield. Mosconi tossed to Braga on the 33 and Al crashed to the 14 before going down. On the next play Mosconi threw again to Braga who took the ball out of a welter of Cowboy backs and ran across the goal. Mosconi again connected for the extra point.
The Cowboys came back strong in the third quarter and drove 60 yards on a series of screened pass plays but were stopped on the Don 30. Taking over possession, the Dons made their last march of the evening which ended when little Pete Visentin pitched to Braga over the goal. The conversion failed.
In their second victory over Texas teams in as many weeks, the Dons showed great improvement. Knds Bill Telesmanic and John L. Sullivan were standouts. Doug Stinson and Dan Fisk showed well at center while the second backheld of Rod air, F.nrico Bicanchi, Pete Visentin and Bill Casey rolled up plenty of yardage in the last period.' | 'he naturai. reaction of letting down after two smashing victories set in when the Dons met the Montana Grizzlies and as a result the game dragged to a disappointing scoreless tie.
While they were able to march between the 20 yard lines the Green and Gold team could not penetrate the stubborn Grizzly defense when pay-dirt loomed ahead.
A1 Braga and Cliff Fisk carried the ball four times deep into Montana territory but a Grizzly line led by center Bill Matasovic successfully held them off.
Twice in the third quarter the Dons drove to the 20 yard marker but were repelled by the Northerners.
The Grizzlies threatened once when Bill Lazetich and Kd Dolan led a march to the 11 yard line but guards Trude Spearman and Charley Kremesec stopped center drives.
Pete Visentin and Man Mosconi alternated at left half and safety and both threatened on numerous occasions to return punts all the way.
A1 Braga brought “oohs” and “ahs” from the crowd of 12,000 with his phenomenal kicking. Three of his efforts went ov er 60 yards in the air and one went sailing 67. It was against this same Montana team last year that Braga rooted a ball out 81 yards on the tlv, a record for American football.J«.r i.'astilli" Qiuirlerlmek

T. a si.ow dragging game, the Dons stopped the Santa Barbara State Gauchos 14-0 in
another night game at Seals Stadium. Cold and fog kept the crowd down to 7,500.
In the first quarter A1 Braga ran his weak side reverse through tackle and threaded his way 38 yards to a score.
The other Don tally came in the second period when Fete Breceda snagged a 14 yard pass from Mosconi and fell across the goal with two Gauchos hanging on his neck. Mosconi converted both scores.
The Dons rolled up 389 yards from scrimmage and passes but were held half a dozen times by the scrappy Santa Barbara outfit within the five yard line.
Cliff Fisk threatened to break away in the first and third quarters but after gallops of 20 and 33 yards was hauled down from behind by the safety man.
The Gauchos showed little in the way of offense but showed great defensive strength near their end zone.
Sophomore Grant Mill started in place of the injured Blase Miatovich and turned in a great game. Tom Rice, Pete Breceda, Bill Telesmanic and Doug Stinson were the other standouts in the line.Jack Hcggg Center

Ox a gloomv and wet October Sunday afternoon, George Mailer's fighting Don team was downed by the St. Mary’s Gaels, 13-6, as a near capacity crowd of 50,000 watched the wildest football game of the Bay Region schedule.
The first half found the Moragans driving the Green and Gold band steadily back. Only the great punting of A1 Braga and heroic defensive work of Tom Rice, Bill Casey and Blase Miatovich stopped the Ciaels from scoring.
But with the start of the second half the Dons opened up a scoring attack that carried them across the Red and Blue goal. Fisk and Braga smashed their way to midfield behind decisive key blocks by Bill Casey. At this point Fisk faded for a pass and threw to Bill Telesmanic who had streaked behind the Gael defense. Telesmanic made the catch on the 16 and loped the remaining distance for the touchdown. The attempted conversion failed.
Not content with six points, the Dons drove deep into St. Mary's territory late in the third period. A pass from Pete Visentin to Telesmanic produced what looked like another touchdown but the officials ruled interference on the play.
The Gaels rolled late in the last period. On a flanker play Mike Klotovich shot a spot pass over center to Harry Aronson who tallied standing up. The conversion made tlie score 7-6. Insult was added to injury a few minutes later when Klotovich ran 52 yards over his own right tackle for the second Gael score.
The play was disputed by the Dons as illegal but the officials ruled in favor of St. Mary’s.
With onlv two minutes of play remaining the Dons advanced to midfield but last second passes fell incomplete or were batted down.U. S. F. 0

Before forty-five thousand wild gridiron fans “Buck” Shaw's Santa Clara University Broncos squeezed through with a close 7-0 victory over George Mai ley’s valiant hand of Don gridders.
Striking in a third period drive of 61 yards, the two-time Sugar Bowl champs sprang sophomore Jimmy Johnson loose on a 27 yard gallop to register the lone tally of the bitterly fought game.
The twelfth renewal of the annual Bronco-Don game saw the underdog San Francisco squad fight on even terms for the first half, twice holding the heralded Bronc attack deep in the shadow of the goal posts. In the opening period a beautifully executed pass from Gilbert to McCarthy took the ball to the Don four yard marker. But the great forward wall of San Francisco pushed the overconfident Bronc squad back to the ten yard stripe. There an incompleted fourth down pass nullified the scoring opportunity.
A second attempt on the part of Santa Clara to score in the second period also met with failure as the Don line rose to the occasion and held the Broncson the 15 yard line.
Injuries to Cliff Fisk and Bill Telesmanic in the first half gave Don victory chances a severe setback. Telesmanic had to retire from the game, and ClitF Fisk's usual crushing game was below par.
Highlights of an otherwise dull game were the great punting of All-Coast A1 Braga, who averaged 43 yards per kick, and the safety work of Fete Visentin, who twice was nearly off to the races on his returns.
A forty-five yard pass from Art McCafferv to Braga in the last twenty seconds of play temporarily gave Bronc fans a heart attack, but it was short lived as “Ambling A I” was forced out of bounds at the mid-field stripe as the gun sounded.1

Otrea.yi i.ined attacks were the order of the day in the Raisin City on Armistice Day when Jimmy Bradshaw’s razzle dazzle squad of Fresno Staters almost caught the
Dons napping. However, the Staters succumbed in the final quarter when reserve strength of the Dons overwhelmed their opponents.
Fireworks began popping on the first play of the game when Captain Toby Heeb of the Bulldogs took Blase Miatovich’s kickoff and rambled back fifty-four yards to tlie San Francisco thirty-six yard line. In less than seven plays the Bulldogs had scored, ! with Petersen hitting pay dirt from three yards out.
Electing to kick-off again, the Dons were surprised to find their backs once more against their goal posts. Aided by a thirty-five yard jaunt by halfback Ernie Poore, the Slaters moved to within four yards of pay dirt from which point an attempted field goal went wide.
I ired of being pushed around, the 1 )ons took the ball on their own twenty yard stripe and decided to do a little sightseeing on their own.
“Ambling A!” Braga personally conducted the tour when he cut inside left tackle, headed for the eastern sidelines, and then aided by a neat block by Cliff Fisk scooted eighty yards to a score. Cliff added the extra point, and the small band of Don rooters who made the trip breathed more easily. Late in the fourth quarter the Dons scored again.
A1 Wright picked up a loose ball on the Fresno thirty-nine. Mosconi passed complete to Fisk who t umbled on the twenty-nine. The ball bounded crazily to the nine yard line where Braga fell on it. On the next play Braga drove over the goal for the second touchdown. Fisk converted.

XXTinding up the 1938 grid season, which was the greatest ever at the University of ’ ' San Francisco, George Malley’s big Green and Gold machine rolled over Gonzaga University of Spokane by an 8-0 score.
File Don-Bulldog encounter marked the grid finale for such great Don gridders as Al Braga, Tom Rice, Blase Miatovich, Charley Kremesec, Art McCaffery, Hugh Miles and Bill Casey.
Sparking the Don attack was All-Coast Al Braga the Crockett Rockett, who turned in one of the most brilliant performances of his career in getting off on jaunts of 51 and 70 yards.
His initial gallop of 51 yards came on the opening kickoff when he ran the ball back deep into the Bulldog territory. Later in the same period Braga took a reverse from Fete Visentin who was playing safety on the Don twenty-seven. The speedy half streaked down the western sidelines for seventy yards, to be knocked out of bounds by Tony Canadeo on the three yard line. Visentin went over for the score.
After a see-saw battle for two quarters which saw the Dons holding the upper hand and the Bulldogs never threatening, the Gonzagans tried the ancient Statue of Liberty play on their own goal line only to have Miatovitch and Pete Breceda smash through and nail Canadeo for a safety.
The game was played on an ice-covered field which made ball handling precarious. If it had not been for adverse weather conditions the Dons would have probably punched over another two scores.FRESHMAN
Coach Bob Kleckner
Anew crop of Don football material paraded before the watchful eyes of varsity coach George Malley during the past season, performing under the able direction of frosh coaches Bob Kleckner and Alex Schwarz.
Following in the footsteps of the great undefeated 1937 frosh squad which trampled over a half dozen opponents, this year’s edition couldn’t quite come up to the record set for them and bowed in defeat twice, once to Santa Clara’s great yearling squad, and once to the powerful varsity of the California Polytechnic School at San Luis Obispo. Wins were chalked up over San Francisco J. C., San Jose State Freshmen, and St. Mary’s Frosh.
George Malley’s eyes fairly popped from his head as he watched the performances of one of Kleckner’s prize pupils, Pete Franceschi. The former All-Citv halfback from Mission High in San Francisco ran roughshod over all opponents, registering six touchdowns against the live opponents the Muchachos tackled. All gallops into the end zone came after runs of over fifty yards. Another run of one hundred and two yards, reeled off against San Francisco J.C., was nullified by an offside penalty.
But the success of the yearling squad was not alone credited to Francheschi.
Others who performed notably during the season included the great dial Warford, hard hitting fullback from Oakland; Tiger Smith, scrappy center from Santa Clara’s prep school, Bellarmine; Joe Van der Linden of Los Angeles, guard; Russ Kynock (now at Louisiana State), an end who gave great promise of developing into a fine wingman; Leo Cima, from Sacramento, a smooth halfback. Two tackles who are sure to be varsity material are Joe DiGrazia and “Red” Simmons, both of whom are well over 200 pounds.
With the splendid material developed by the frosh squad, wide open battles loom for places on the Don varsity of 1939. Five first string berths are left open by graduation and at least two of them should be filled by the upcoming yearlings.

Making their debut in Northern California Intercollegiate Basketball play, the Dons swamped the College of the Pacific live, 4-3, in kezar Pavilion.
With Tony Franusich and Johnny Ignoffo leading the attack, the Green and Gold held a 20 11 halftime lead.
Franusich continued the attack in the last half and wound up with 17 points for the evening. Ignoffo tanked four field goals and a foul shot for nine points.
Stellar defensive work by Johnny Gurnee and Curt Knifsend minimized Tiger scoring opportunities.
Bob Burman, rangy sophomore center, made his first appearance in the Green and Gold lineup and played consistent ball.
Reserve strength proved efficient in Olivero, Porter, Fair and O’Looney.
Going to Stockton for the final game of the series, the Dons squeezed through with a 32-29 win.
Bob Fair, sub forward, proved himself of first string caliber in t his contest by scoring 12 points. Tony Franusich, ace Don sharpshooter, had a completely off night and was held scoreless.
John Guinee, scrappy Don guard, made up for Franusich’s inability to score by sinking five field goals.
Ripon, Tiger forward, led the losers with 11 points.

Ax amazing University of San Francisco five practically blasted a heavily favored St. Mary’s team right off the kezar court in winning the first game of the series 58-46. Coach Cameron's cagers simply outspeeded their taller rivals and at no time was the contest close. In the last few minutes of the game the Moragans wilted perceptibly under the fast breaking attack of the Dons.
Tony Franusich accounted for 18 points and was ably supported by Johnny (luinee and Curt Knifsend, each of whom contributed 10 points.
After a slow start that saw them trailing 7-5 in the first quarter, the Don five suddenly snapped from its lethargy and swept the St. Man ’s series by taking a second game victory 44-31.
Bob Fair and Tony Franusich pulled the game from the fire at the beginning of the second half when they put the Dons out in front 29-20.
Fair sank 16 points for high man honors, but Franusich won the individual scoring championship of the conference in tallying 14 points. This gave him a total of 94 in conference play.Marly Portci Guard

Woefully off form, the Dons bowed to the fast-breaking Bronco outfit in the first encounter of the Santa Clara series by a 34-25 score in the San Jose Auditorium. It was just one of those nights that found Tony Franusich, Johnny Guinee, Curt knifsend and Bob Burman not able to hit the basket. The sole comfort in the defeat was the play of Johnny Ignoffo who garnered 12 points.
One of the most thrilling games to be played at Kezar was the second Don-Bronco tilt which saw the Green and Gold going down to a 54-41 defeat.
The score does not indicate the closeness of the battle for it was not until the last few minutes that the Broncos went into a commanding lead.
The lead see-sawed during the tirst half and the greater portion of the second, but Kd Nelson, Bronco center, suddenly went wild with four successive tip-in shots to put Santa Clara far out in front.
Tony Franusich led the Dons with 16 points and was followed by Bob Fair who made 10. Guinee and knifsend played their usual good game and were the mainstays of the Don squad.
Bruce Hale, Kd Nelson and Bobby Ferrick played dependable games at the guard positions for S. C. U. Hale made 10 points. Nelson sank eight and Ferrick seven.Playing their first game without the services of Johnny Ignoffo, star forward, the I )ons dropped the first game of the San Jose State series 56-40 in the Spartan pavilion in San Jose.
IgnofTo was seriously injured in an automobile crash the night before the Spartan clash, and at game time was fighting for his life in a San Francisco hospital.
W ith heavy hearts and far distant minds the Dons carried on, but with the start of the second half they fell apart and let a six point lead vanish.
W ith a minute and a half to go the Dons came within two points of the Spartans, but Carl Bendich, San Jose guard, suddenly tanked seven field goals in the remaining seconds.
Bendich carried off high point honors with 24, followed by Tony Franusich with 16 digits.J. PORTER. DEBRL'NER. TOOMEY. CANEPO. COMISKEY. WHITE. GREALISH. CASSKLLI. K ALFA IN. HI RTOI.UCCI
1} EC0RD breakers” was the name hung on this 1939 edition of the University of
J San Francisco Freshman basketball team.
One of the best aggregations ever to wear the frosh colors in the history of the school, coach Bob Kleckner’s squad went through a twelve game schedule, coming out on top eleven times. The one defeat was inflicted at the hands of the Santa Clara freshmen, but a return game saw the young Dons gaining revenge for the single blemish on their record.
Outstanding achievements accomplished during the season by Kleckner’s men included a masterful exhibition of defensive ball when they held Commerce High School to but one foul shot in a game which saw the future varsity stars winning by a 22 to 1 score. The game established a new local record for defensive playing.
Highest scoring achievement for the season saw the frosh swamp the San Francisco Boy’s Club by a 77-39 score. 'Phis game revealed marked improvement of the team, for earlier in the season they had previously defeated the same outfit, but by a 38-20 score.
Individual performances were the highlights of the season, as first one and then another of the frosh hoopsters would put on a one man show.
Jimmy Porter, great center from St. Ignatius High School, went on a scoring rampage against San Francisco Boy’s Club and took high point honors for the evening with 25 points.
Ed Kalfain rose to the heights against Martinez’ High School Alhambra Alumni and swished another 25 points through the nets.
Destined to provide Wally Cameron’s varsity with fine material next season are Will DeBruner, the ex Galileo star; Mario Bertolucci, Charley White, Caselli, Shrupp, Houlihan, Grealisli and Comiskey.

T espite a delay in organization of soccer of U. S. F. in the fall of 1938, the Don team was moderately successful in its campaign. Not until after league competition was actually under way was it determined whether L . S. F. would be represented by a team. This delay, plus the fact that there was no coach, would have been sufficient to dismay many a group, but not the hardy Soccerites.
With the veterans from the previous year as a nucleus, a squad was formed which at no time exceeded 15 varsity men. Organized and coached by themselves, the Dons proceeded to give all comers a good battle. When the season was over the Dons found themselves in third position behind California and San Jose.
Handicapped offensively because Kenzo Quilici, clever center-forward, was closely guarded by all opponents, the Dons were especially strong defensively. Herbert in goal was given tine support by his fullbacks, Paul Golden and Walt Odone, and by Captain “Red” Houston at center half.
1’he outstanding game was the second California contest. The Don full backs kept Bear star Musante bottled up while Quilici made several spectacular efforts to score. In the final minutes the Bears scored a freak goal and the wearied Dons bowed in defeat 1-0.
During the entire season the Dons displayed a tire and heart to win which was a credit to U.S.F. Only a few freak goals, lack of a coach and of substitutes cost them a chance at the championship.

Doxi.nc had one of its least successful years since its inception as a minor sport at the Iniversity. The team had but two dual meets, both with the Central Y.M.C.A. of San Francisco, and absence of any collegiate opponent on the schedule made the season less attractive than it might have been.
Another factor that hampered the team was the fact that a full varsity squad was not available and it was necessary to recruit freshmen. However, it may be said to their credit that they won the majority of their bouts.
The first match with the Y. M. C. A. resulted in a 5-4 victory for L’SF. Highlight of the evening was Big Dan Benedetti’s first round technical knockout over the “Y” light heavyweight entry.
In the return engagement the Dons won by a 6-5 count. Benedetti again stole the show with his victory over Karl Bolster, former Don fullback.
March 24-25 Coach Jim Mace took five men to Sacramento to the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Tournament. But lack of suitable opposition during the year proved the Dons no match for their more experienced foes.
Pete Breceda, who showed the effect of dropping 15 pounds too rapidly, lost in his opening light heavyweight fight. Dan Benedetti won one match but was put out of the running on the second night of the tourney. Carmelo Celestrc, welterweight; George Radovich, middleweight, and heavyweight Dan Fisk all lost their first round matches.
'Fhe team’s lack of success can not be blamed on Coach Mace or on the boxers themselves but must be attributed to the young age and inexperience of the boys and lack of strong opposition.
However, with the team remaining virtually intact better things may be looked for in the next few years.
Manager of the team for the third year was Alan W hite.TENNIS

Mkmhkrs of the three year old California Intercollegiate Tennis Conference, the Dons for the first time are favorites to win the title.
In their first match of the season the Dons won handily over St. Mary’s by a 7-2 score. A week later they conquered Santa Clara Broncos bv a 5-4 margin.
Against San Francisco State the Dons were favored to win, but it was just one of those days that saw placement shots skimming outside by inches and the Staters won 5 to 4.
San Jose State is the fifth member of the association.
Tom Clecak, two year veteran, holds down the No. 1 spot on the squad closely followed by Captain Bill Herbert in second position. Bryan McCarthy, Marin Junior College transfer, is No. 3. Other members of the first string squad are veteran Ed Da-pello and newcomers John McDonald and loin Waters.
A strong reserve team, made up in the main of lower classmen, lists Jack kimbark, Frank Samonte, Phil Povey, W alt Fleischer, Doug Vueve and John Tringali.
In each match six singles and three double games are played. One point is given for each match win.
Next year the team will be the strongest in the conference as only Bill Herbert will be lost through graduation.

One of the least known but perhaps the most successful minor sport is golf. The Don team won the Northern California Inter-collegiate Golf Championship in 1937 and were runners up in 1938. This year they are co-favorites with San Jose State.
In their first match the Dons met Santa Clara Broncos and won an easy 8-1 match. Later in the season on their home course the Broncos put up a better battle but fell again by a 5-4 score.
Against St. Mary’s the Green and Gold won two easy victories. Playing on the Gaels’ home course the Dons took the tirst match by an overwhelming 8] 'V2 margin and later beat them in San Francisco by a 7-2 margin.
San Jose State is the only team to win over the CSF golfers. Playing on their home course the Spartans won a 6-3 victory. A return match was held in late April.
Bill Griffith, three year veteran, is playing captain and is voted by observers as one of the most promising golfers in the Conference. Griffith lost but one match over the length of the season.
Charles Otto and Bill Go wans, two year veterans, are lx th capable of near par golf and will form a nucleus for next year’s squad.
Johnny Swanson, who has only been playing a year but who is already down to the high 70’s, Vin Finigann and Sonny Swar . are the other members of the squad.
In early May the Don golfers will act as host to other conference members when an individual tournament will be held to determine the best collegiate club-swinger. Bob McGlashan of CSF won the individual championship in 1937 and 1938. Griffith is the Dons’ chief hope this year.

Oi.D timers have said that if the U.S. F. Rugby team ever settled down, organized properly, practiced regularly and really learned the tine points of the game, it would have no trouble beating any team in the Bay Region. This year, after a very slow start, it looked like the Dons were going to do just that. But a series of injuries to such capable men as Captain Tom Rice and Pete Visentin, unfortunate mistakes in games and lack of practice finally took their toll. Despite this, the Don rugby team continued on its way as the toughest team to beat in the Bay Area Conference.
Back from last year’s squad were such stalwarts as Captain Tom Rice, Pete Breceda, Jim Madden and Bill Barry in the scrum; Paul Golden at wing forward and Walt Pudoff, Charley Kremesac, A1 Braga, Sammy Johnstone, and Hugh Malley in the backfield. To these men Coach Marovich added Larkins, Portello, DiGrazia and Mohr in the scrum, and P. Visentin, Pete Franchesi and Glenn underling in the backfield. This was a strong team on paper and just as strong and tough to beat on the field.
The Dons showed their strength principally against Stanford. California and the Olympic Club. Though they lost these three games, the margin of victory in each case was but one try. Two of the games at least could easily have ended in victory for the unorthodox Don ruggers. In the Olympic Club fray, one of the roughest seen hereabouts, Charley Kremesac scored what should have been the winning try, but a questionable decision disallowed the effort.
Coach Marcovich and his ruggers were to play British Columbia on Treasure Island. They wished to wallop again those whose national game is rugby, but unfortunately all rugby games on the island were cancelled.
Credit should be given to Tom Rice and Charley Kremesac for the work they have done in making rugby a success at I S.I

( h .mpions for the past two years in the California Collegiate Oarsmen Association, the Dons are training to win their third title under Coach Bill Lenhart.
Veterans Hob Neal, Ross Dunleavv, Bill Reynolds, Charles Fournier, Joe Kane and Tom W aters with freshmen Bill Campbell, Dave Morris, Hob Rossi, Hob Flood, Don Helbig and Leo Orginos are heavy favorites in league circles to win the championship again.
Competition in crew is restricted to two years as other members of the association are junior colleges. Consequently the Dons lost many men from last year who are still in school but ineligible to compete.
League races with San Mateo Junior College, San Francisco Junior College and Polytechnic College of Oakland are not held until early May. However, in practice races with San Francisco high school crews the Dons have won handily.
Races are held over a 2000 meter course along the Marina.
Special block letters are awarded crew men. This crew block was designed two years ago by the Athletic Office when the Dons won their first championship.In keeping with the national celebration of the Centennial of Baseball, the University of San Francisco maintained its prestige in Bay Area athletic circles by fielding a b team that ranked with the best of the college outfits.
To John horde and Coach Bill Tobin, S. J., goes much of the credit for the Dons' fine showing, horde lined up a strong schedule while Tobin whipped his material into a first rate aggregation.
Outstanding member of the team was Cliff Fisk, who, when not pitching, patrolled center-field. Fisk maintained a .500 batting average over the length of the season.
Other standouts on the squad were Captain Berch Dougherty at first base and Bill Telesmanic, a sophomore who went behind the plate for the first time, and proved himself a potentially great catcher.
Dougherty and Jack Drath at first, Paul Kimball and Carl Oliva at Second, Dick Shaughnessy at shortstop and Smith at third gave the Dons one of the strongest college defensive units in northern California.
Punch at the plate was provided by outfielders Kd holey, Jack Beggs, Dan Fisk, Cliff Fisk, Louie Noel, Ken Houghton and F.zio Paolino.
With the exception of Dougherty, a three year veteran, the whole squad will return for competition next year.
Unfortunately several March games with San Jose State, St. Mary’s, San Francisco Junior College and Marin Junior College were cancelled due to rain or wet grounds.

TTardest working members of any athletic team but most often ■ ignored are the athletic managers.
To these men comes all the grief and none of the glory of the sports parade. It is they who must dole out and account for equipment, attend to every detail. When things are working smoothly they are forgotten when praise is distributed, when something goes wrong they come in for all the blame.
A thankless job and a responsible one is theirs.
First to come to practice and last to leave, they experience neither the thrill of participation nor the passive joy of a spectator.
Without these men the should could not go on. They operate behind the scenes, unknown by most and little cared for by all.
What fun they get from their jobs only they know, but at least we should be thankful for Jim Duane, 'Tom Scally, Con O’Brien, Bob Barbieri,Tom Tasso, Alan White, Bill Britt and Rav Agosti and sometimes when celebrating a victory accord them a little of the merit they so justly deserve.
