OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN FRANCISCO
There is a world-wide struggle to capture the mind of youth. Through “youth movements” foreign dictatorships aim to perpetuate their pernicious doctrines. In our own country youth is exposed to these poisons which can destroy our hard-won liberties. Protection should come from the leading universities, but many of these universities will not or dare not take a stand.
The University of San Francisco refuses to subscribe to the doctrine that "academic freedom” may be used as a pretext to teach systems which destroy all freedom. We proudly boast that we have always taught and will continue to teach the following creed:
We believe in God.
We believe in the personal dignity of man.
We believe that man has natural rights which come from God and not from the State.
We are therefore opposed to all forms of dictatorship which are based on the philosophy that the “total man” (totalitarianism) belongs to the State.
We believe in the sanctity of the home—the basic unit of civilization.
We believe in the natural right of private property, but likewise that private property has its social obligations.
We believe that Labor has not only rights but obligations.
We believe that Capital has not only rights but obligations.
We are vigorously opposed to all forms of “racism” —persecution or intolerance because of race.
We believe that liberty is a sacred thing, but that law, which regulates liberty, is a sacred obligation.
We believe in inculcating all the essential liberties of American Democracy and take open and frank issue with all brands of spurious “democracy.”
We believe, briefly, in the teachings of Christ, who held that morality must regulate the personal, family, economic, political and international life of men if civilization is to endure.v t. jPrands QfssisiDEDICATION
The dream is being realized. The new now rises from the old, as all around us the greater University of San Francisco becomes real. To the west the bright mass of a new Library stands, a token of the future campus; and in the minds of the Jesuit fathers and their friends, where the structures of today stand now, other newer buildings are taking on form. This is the dream, and with it in mind, the class leaving USF in 1952 dedicates its fulfillment to its patron, St. Francis. For ourselves, and our University; that our dreams and the dreams of USF may be fulfilled, we, San Francisco, dedicate this book to you, San Francisco.A path through the Campus leading to the Library

We live each day and run the gamut of joy and sorrow, fear and strength, despair and confidence, gay humor and somber sorrow. Each day fades into another day and eventually another year has come and gone—and we have lived it.
At the end of a year, what do we recall? Surely, not the mundane, the everyday tempo of existence. We recall the events which mark personal achievements, the success of a work which had our support, the admiration of those close to us.
During your University career, the days pass much too fast. It may be a decade before you pause to remember. A Year Book will be taken from the shelf and just the turn of a page or two and memories will crowd in upon you.
With the unsettled conditions of the times, many of you will be scattered to foreign lands on missions of War and Peace. Then, it may be that your only class-reunion will be through the pages of a Year Book which revives activities and associations of one's college years.
When you return from the obligations to your country nothing will give you greater comfort and a feeling of “normalcy” than the revival of school memories.
A university is measured not alone by its growth of buildings and equipment but in the formation of Christian gentlemen. In the years to come, may this record of one year's striving toward that goal be an inspiration and a re-dedication to that aim of the University of San Francisco.
Sincerely yours.WILLIAM TOBIN. S. J. RECTOR

SCHOOL OF LAW

m EDITION TITLES 27-42
The School of Law, founded in 1912 as a night school, has since become a major department of the University with both a Day and Evening division. Now situated on the third floor of the Richard A. Gleason Library, it provides excellent facilities for those seeking a Law degree. Plans are being prepared for the erection in the near future of a structure to be used exclusively for the School of Law and to house the Law Library of over 15,000 volumes. The school was headed this year by a new Dean, Vernon X. Miller, and a select faculty of experienced teachers. Students who managed to free themselves from their books engaged in the activities sponsored by Phi Alpha Delta fraternity and the other law clubs. The outstanding event on the year’s social calendar was the annual Christmas dinner dance at the Palace Hotel. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoyed the spring picnic, another Law School traditional. For years the school has maintained a fine academic standing which has reflected upon the whole University and has aided in the spreading of the University's fame. The School of Law continues to train men in its high standards.

THE COLLEGES OF
While there is no similarity whatsoever between the College of Liberal Arts dnd the College of Science, we discuss them together because they are both housed in the same building and have the same Dean, namely. Rev. Alexis I. Mei, S. J. The curriculum in the school of Arts aims at providing a student with a cultural background in the fields of Classical Languages, Philosophy, Economics, English, History, Modern Languages, Philosophy and Political Science. Unlike the other colleges at the University which provide specific vocational training, Liberal Arts primarily prepares a student for Law School, governmental service, for the teaching profession and above all for the business of life. On the other hand, the College of Science trains the student exactly for the scientific research in industrial and medical fields into which he will go. It also trains him in other scientific and liberal art courses which will provide him with an adequate foundation. This department offers Majors in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics along with a pre-medical program. Also included in the College of Science is a Nursing Curriculum which provides young women with a degree in Nursing.

COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
Richard D. Roberts. Statistics Class
The aim of the College of Business Administration is to train students to meet the general as well as the specific problems of modern industry. The College serves as an efficient medium in which a student receives apprenticeship in the vast business world. Lower division work consists of preparing the student for a major field and simultaneously enlightening him with courses in Philosophy. History and Economic Theory in order to provide him with broader principles necessary for dealing with the industrial system in its social relationships. With lower division work completed, the student proceeds to professional courses in the following major fields: Accounting, Finance, Foreign Trade, General Business, Industrial Relations or Marketing. The Laboratory of the College is the City of San Francisco in which the University is located. The faculty is composed of various leading business men who meet the everyday, changing characteristics of the business world. Many of the students in the College remain in the’city in which they established valuable personal contacts in the business world for later life.

TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM
The Teacher Training Program of the University of San Francisco is extensive. The California State Board of Education has authorized the University to prepare candidates for the General Secondary, Secondary School Administration and Secondary School Supervision credentials.
The program, directed by Rev. Paul J. Harney, S. J., prepares students for teaching in California's public schools. The General Secondary Credential authorizes the prospective teacher to teach in public high schools or the seventh and eighth grades of public elementary schools.
The University offers the Secondary Credential to students majoring in a wide variety of fields: Business Education, French, Italian, Latin, Spanish, Social Studies, English, English-Speech, Life Sciences, General Science and the Physical Sciences.

George E. Lucy. S. J. Director. Evening Division
One important accomplishment of U.S.F. students during the school year 1951-52 was made when the Executive Council of the Day Division voted unanimously to grant a charter to the Evening Division Student Council acknowledging it as the official organ of Evening Division Students.
This Student Council is an outgrowth of the old Planning Committee which organized and scheduled activities, dances, etc., for the students. Prominent on this committee were John Steffler, Frank Weiss, and Marie Quintana, who were elected President, Vice President, and Secretary, respectively.
The functions of the Student Council include not only planning future activities and dances but also acting as a liaison between the students, faculty, and University as regards initiation of new courses, and also promoting mutual understanding and cooperation between the Day and Evening Divisions.
Through this Council the Evening Division students have built up a highly enviable record. Besides their
highly successful dances, including the Turkey Trot, and the Halloween and Valentine dances, the Homecoming Queen and her runner-up were chosen from Evening Division candidates. The best float in the Home-coming Celebration parade was also sponsored by the Evening Division.
The amazing display of college spirit which has been generated in the Evening Division is due not only to the students but also in a large part to Fr. George E. Lucy, S. 1., the director, who did much to encourage these extracurricular activities and to show that the Evening Division also has a place tor campus activities in its academic program.
Plans are now being made that when finished will enable Evening Division students to oin Day students clubs and which will integrate the University. In the words of John Steffler, Evening Division Student Council president, "We've come a long way since our inception, but we feel that there is still a grea deal to do."

William T. Henneberry Student Body President
The school year begins. Twenty-one students, in whose hands lies the responsibility of student self-government, file into the Semaria Room for the first meeting of the Executive Council. They begin studying suggestions and discussing motions. Initiative and energy become evident as plans are constructed for such distant events as the Winter Carnival, the sale of school jackets and the formation of a yearbook staff.
The school year unfolds. Under the leadership of Student Body President Bill Henneberry, serving every school function with the vigor of an eager freshman, the Executive Council continues its work. Without glory, Ralph Thomas, Student Body Vice President, diligently plans every extracurricular activity on or off the campus. Recording Secretary Roy Vallarino,
besides catching in detail the proceedings of every meeting, also has the duty of molding together all of the clubs and organizations of the University. The task of locating suitable dates for newly arising functions on a crowded social calendar is carried out by Corresponding Secretary Lou Stephens. Mai Visbal's weekly Treasurer's reports remain consistently in the black as a result of his assiduous thrift with Student Body Funds. Yell Leader Jim Disney inspires spirit at rallies, games and any other functions which require concentrated effort on the part of students. These student body officers, together with the fifteen other members of the Executive Council, have week after week continued to work wholeheartedly and shape legislation to the best interests of the Student Body.

In addition to the student body officers, the school's governing body included an N.F.C.C.S, (National Federation of Catholic College Students) representative, a B.S.C. representative, a Foghorn representative and the class president and two representatives from each of the four undergraduate classes.
Amiable and efficient Sherman Hall represented the University at the monthly meetings of the Bay Area Catholic Colleges besides working untiringly in his duties as a member of the Executive Council.
Representing the B.S.C. was industrious Bill Byrd, who added much to the Council's success with his complete knowledge of the University Constitution and student regulations.
Experienced Dick Nachtsheim, as Foghorn representative, continually promoted cooperation between the school's press organ and the Executive Council.
Popular Senior class president, Jim Kearney, with the help of two diligent representatives, Walt Johnson and Len Asiano, voiced the political views of the Senior class which symbolized leadership throughout the year. With Vice President Pat Roberts and Secretary-Treasurer Sherman Hall, they molded every
senior class function into a social and financial success.
School spirit keynoted the Junior class under the responsible direction of President Jack Connelly. Jack, together with Vice President Tom Pierce, Secretary-Treasurer Carl Re and two inexhaustible representatives, Joe Troy and Bill Kern, sparked every school event with enthusiasm.
Energetic and reliable Sophomore class president Dom Tarantino and veteran representatives Larry McCarthy and Phil O'Connor worked efficiently and provided hard working Sophomores at every student function. Helping plan each of the Sophomore's class functions were Vice President Jim Quinn and Secretary-Treasurer John McCarthy.
The freshman class quickly learned the operations of student government through popular Freshman President George Hayes and representatives Bill Bush and Ray Healy. These men, together with Vice President John Murphy and Secretary-Treasurer K. C. Jones, carried out many extra duties and proved to be one of the most successful classes of the school.

The Class of 1952 has witnessed probably the finest era in the history of the Hilltop. This "Golden Era," so to speak, started with the greatest year of sports the school has ever known. National Champions at three sports in one year gave the school the name of "Home of the Champions." This was truly a remarkable start for the men of '52 but it was not only in the athletic field that we were winning merits. The Freshman Fandango hit the apex of the social calendar and the enrollment broke all records at the University. Joe Kuharich started his build-up program and the Class of 1952 was the core of his plot.
The second and third years of our stay in the land of the Don were ordinary years except for wild car parades down Market Street to the City Hall or watching and waiting for the day we could use the Senior Patio. Cappy Lavin was a wonder with the casaba and Bob Thollander was drawing the views of the scouts with his adroitness with a spheroid. Bill Henne-berry was elected Student Body President and all was made in readiness for the "big Year."
September 1951 came and with it a football team that no other team in the annals of the University could match for ability to win games. This undefin-able quality was typical not only of the team but of the members of the Class of which a great portion of that team was made. May those qualities remain in us, forever!

The Class of '53 returned to the Hilltop on a sunny September Morn to register for the first time as upper classmen. A few weeks passed and Jack Connelly was elected Prexy.
As at every school, the most important social event of the year is the Junior Prom, so too on the Hilltop it topped all Don activities. Veep, Tom Pierce, Secretary-Treasurer Carl Re, and Representatives Joe Troy and Bill Kern aided Connelly in being a perfect host for the Senior Class at the Prom. It was held at the Palace-like Peninsula Golf and Country Club in the early part of February, where Dons danced to golden music on a beautiful moonlit night.
Before the Prom, on January 7, Connelly took another leading role by organizing the Winter Carnival. With an able committee he conducted the affair to be a success.
Representative Troy was a co-chairman v ith Senior Jim Disney on the Homecoming Committee.
Representative Kern and Junior Jack Goodwin were assistant yell leaders who were greatly responsible for the Don-spirit at all football games.
Prominent Foghorn writers included Jerry Dalton, Dick Nachtsheim, Phil Lum, Bill Crawford and Jack Cannon.

Dom Tarantino Class Presidont
A troubled, undecided world greeted the class of 1954 as it returned in early September from far flung vacation spots. The Sophomores quickly organized themselves by electing capable leaders who would guide the activities of the class in its sepond year on the Hilltop. An Italian, Dom Tarantino, was elected President to lead the class, along with a quartet of popular Irishmen, Vice President Jim Quinn, Secretary John McCarthy, and Class Representatives Phil O'Connor and Larry McCarthy. The work of uniting the class in support of campus activities was ably performed by these men to such an extent that many have called the Sophomores this year’s outstanding class. Under the direction of Barney Blackmore, Sophs Tony Mayta and Jack Portello did yeoman labor in turning out the posters and signs which festooned the school. On the dramatic scene, the College Players were greatly helped by sophomore talent. John Warren, Ted Moore, and George Reynolds all turned in great performances in the first two plays, while the Passion Play utilized these and a great many more, including Ed Antagnoli, Gary Alta-mirano. Phil Reed, Dick Walsten, and Joe Ehrlach. Leonard Heinz and Tom Walsh spent many hours compiling sports articles for the Foghorn; Bill Olmo was a familiar figure behind the desk of the Gleeson Library, as was Dave Silva in the bookstore; John P. Riordan led the school in public oratory and debating. If Bill Ferrero and Bob Granucci were sometimes not seen, it was only because they were obscured by their omnipresent cameras. These are only a few of the names that made this year's Sophomore class well-known, energetic, well-liked, and influential.

When the men of the University of San Francisco, class of '52, look back into their memories, chances are they'll remember this year's Freshman class. These boys who will graduate three years hence came from all parts of California and the world, but when they became one group they really had it. Whatever they did turned out tops. Whether it was supporting a blood-drive, or turning out for a rally, game, or dance, the Freshmen were always in there one hundred percent. The class of '55 was formally greeted by USF in the usual grand style, amid a blaze of green and gold dinks. For several weeks the freshman and his dink walked, talked, ate, slept, and studied together. It is a chapter of the story they would all rather forget, and will someday enjoy remembering. Let it be said only that one day the end came, and dinks faded into the past. But before that day the class of '55 had elected its officers, and were thoroughly incorporated as a component of the student body. The cage sport dominated the yearlings' political scene as George Hayes stepped into the presidency, taking two of his former teammates, Bill Bush and Ray Healy, with him as class representatives. Jack Murphy became vice president, and K. C. Jones, another casabist, assumed the duties of secretary and treasurer. The freshman's days sped past like express trains. Then, as it does every year, the great day came—March 15, and the Frosh Fandango. Each loyal class member polished up the old jalopy, picked up the best girl, and sped off to the dance. Any one of them will tell you that there never was a greater social event than this year's Fandango, which concluded the new thrills of another first year at USF.

A nursing curriculum established in 1948 has given USF its coeducational appearance. In that year, St. Mary's College of Nursing became affiliated with USF and put into action a degree program. This program enables a woman attending the University for three semesters and a summer session to graduate with a Bachelor of Science Degree in nursing after completing three years training at the hospital. The nurses are active participants in student activities and in many of the organizations on the campus.

Offense in Action
USF-39 SAN JOSE STATE-2 USF-42 SAN JOSE STATE-7
Everybody—backs, tackles, guards, centers and ends —got into the act in this game. Ollie Matson, playing his usual stellar game against a San Jose State football team, raced up and down the field for 127 yards and two touchdowns. Ed Brown unlimbered his pitching arm and tossed left to Merrill Peacock and right to Bob St. Clair; before the evening was over left end Peacock had scored three touchdowns while right end St. Clair snagged another six-pointer. The versatile Brown also booted three extra points, needless but nevertheless welcomed. In the course of action, he also made 19 completions out of 34 attempts and 261 yards.
But it was not all offense. Far from it. The defensive team, consisting for the most part of Burl Toler, Gino Marchetti, Mike Mergen, and Bob St. Clair, allowed but 61 yards on the ground to the Spartans. Even more astounding was the fact that San Jose State was not allowed a first down until the remaining twelve minutes of the game! By that time, the issue was settled. The Spartans could not unlimber their offense
mainly because of the loss of their ace quarterback, Lynn Aplanalp, who suffered an injury in scrimmage.
Three weeks later, the Spartans began "Operation Save Face," a calculated attempt to regain some luster lost to the Don team that had humbled them so completely. For two quarters the Prune Valley boys showed the partisan home town crowd that they could play in the same league as USF, for they trailed only 7-16 before the end of the third period. Ollie soon put a stop to their aspirations by reeling 54 yards through the Spartan team. Although the run was nullified by a penalty, nevertheless the pressure on the home team was heightened to such a degree that from here on it was "no contest." Matson scored thrice, while Joe Scudero, Dick Huxley and Vince Sakowski tallied one touchdown apiece; Burl Toler capitalized on a SJS miscue for a safety. Center Hal Sachs added four points-after-touchdowns to bring the USF scoring to 42 for the evening. The Spartans' consolation touchdown came as a result of a pass play.

This was strictly Matson's show, as the giant fullback boomed for 235 yards in 33 carries, picking up 3 touchdowns along the way. Even the Vandal speed merchant, Glen Christian, had to take a back seat to the human piledriver. Before the game, Christian was hailed (by the Idaho athletic office) as being so fast that it would be sheer folly for opposing linemen to stop him from going through the line or from skirting the ends. Matson, however, put on a personal demonstration in the theory and art of line-busting and end-running. His last touchdown, early in the fourth quarter, was a 68-yard burst through the right side of the Idaho line; along the way to the Vandal goal line he by-passed three looming defenders—all of whom had a momentary hold on Ollie—all of whom were soon shaken off and left behind. The other touchdowns climaxed long and spirited drives and were also scored by the ubiquitous Matson.
The fourth Green-and-Gold touchdown of the day was the result of Joe Scudero's broken field running after taking a punt on the midfield stripe. Ed Brown threw a crunching key block to spring Scudero, and,
in the process, wrenched a back muscle. The ailment did not respond to the heat pads or whirlpools of Trainer Frank Zanazzi until ten days later; in the interim. Bill Henneberry quarterbacked the team to a victory over a pro-hardened foe.
In the previous week's game, the Dons allowed but 61 yards to San Jose State; this week, up in Boise, the defensive crew grudgingly gave up 57 yards to Christian and company. The lone Idaho tally came as the result of a pass play, in the last few minutes of the game, when Coach Kuharich had replaced the starters, fast tiring because of the humidity, with second- and third-stringers. Vandal Coach Babe Curfman opined that the Dons could have scored a few more times if they had so desired.
Ollie no doubt put on a more than convincing demonstration to Northwest sportswriters—themselves booming a favorite son for All-American honors—even though romping in a partisan stadium. His feats for the day could well have cinched his All-American selection.

USF-26 CAMP PENDLETON MARINES-0
Back home at Kezar Stadium, the Dons encountered the first of their two service opponents, the Camp Pendleton Marines. Granted, the Marines lacked the glamor of a college team, but the grid squad's personnel was by no means a conglomeration of heavy men thrown together for the purpose of exercise. Instead, they were a balanced mixture of ex-professionals (including an All-Pro end) and former college football players. A few of the names on the CamPen rostor included the following men: Walt Szot, ex-Chicago Cardinal and Pittsburgh Stooler tackle: Gene Valentine, ex-Rice Institute goard; Bob Buel. ex-Chicago Bear and Wisconsin tackle;
Cloyce Box, 1950 All-Pro with the a.
Detroit Lions; Charlie Harris, prom-ising back from the University of Georgia frosh squad; Joe Cribari, honorable mention All -American center from Denver University; and so on down the list. The previous week saw the Marine line (which averaged 222 pounds) limit a USC backfield to 28 yards; Camp Pendleton won from this Trojan "jayvee" squad
Larry Slajchert Center
Bob Schaeffer Guard
27-17, but raised a ruckus about whether they had beaten a goof squad aggregation or varsity material. The incident was allowed to die quietly by El Trojan supporters in order to insure a winning season for USC.
Quarterback Bill Henr.efcerry ployed his first full varsity game , sj on this sunny Sunday when Ed Brown did not respond to treatments for a back injury. The defensive team took up the slock, and the combination of offense as called by Henneberry and PS of defense as called by Burl Toler produced a 26 0 win for the Green-and-Gold. The Gargantuas of the Golden Gate outplayed the heavier Marines all the way and sent them home with minus 47 yards in rushing. Ollie hounded the vaunted Cloyce Box all afternoon and allowed him but one completed pass, while Ollie himself picked up two touchdowns on long runs. Roy Giorgi, up to his old pass thieving tricks, rammed an interception back for another touchdown. as George McLaughlin ended the scoring for the afternoon with the catch of a pass that resulted in an 80-yard t.d. play.

Sakowski smashes Ram line
Ollie Matson staked his claim for All-American honors before a skeptical New York sportswriters' aggregation—presumably the best, if not the most vociferous, in the business—as he rammed home two kickoffs of over 90 yards each against an inspired Fordham team. In a see-saw battle that was not decided until the final minute, the two teams exchanged point-making with the regularity of a metronome. Ed Brown (not to be confused with Ed Brown of Fordham) displayed quick thinking when, with approximately one minute left in the game, he found all his potential receivers blanketed but slithered over the final three yards himself for the last, and winning, points of the afternoon.
There were other ramifications to the victory: serious injuries to Roy Giorgi and Joe Arenivar, frosh defensive specialist, sidelined the pair for the rest of the season; Joe Scudero and George Carley also came up with assorted injuries that kept the former out of action for two weeks and hampered the latter for a while.
The Dons scored first, at the outset of the game: Ollie fumbled the ball, picked it up on the first re-
bound, and outraced 11 opponents, 10 blockers, and four officials to the other side of the grid. If anyone came in late for this feat, it was duplicated by the same star (Matson), supporting cast (his teammates), and stooges (guess who?) a few minutes later; this kickoff play, which covered 90 yards, was identical to the previous one, even to the momentary bobble. As usual the hard-hitting, defensive linemen and backs smashed every effort that the Ramsters made. Joe Kozdeba, Jack Hyatt and Dave Ficca tried to ram through center, guard, tackle and end, yet they hardly gained an inch as they were cut down by Burl Toler, Gino Marchetti, Grey Hillig, Ralph Thomas, Bob St. Clair and Harold Sachs. Then the Rams changed their offense to air attacks. Tom Healy of Fordham, when he wasn't pulled down by Marchetti and St. Clair, managed to throw a few passes which accounted for Fordham's 26 points on the scoreboard.
As in every game, the Number 1 Defensive line in the nation rocked offensive running attacks so badly that they had to pass.

Back to Kezar Stadium traipsed the injury-riddled Hilltoppers to do battle with upset-minded San Diego Naval Training Center, surprise victors earlier in the season over the Loyola Lions. Like the previous Service opponent the Dons faced, the Bluejacket roster also contained an imposing list of ex-professional and former collegiate stars. George Musacco, rampaging fullback on Loyola's championship football team of 1950, teamed up with the Jackets to give the Dons a bad time—a habit he had fallen into ever since his playing days with the Lions. As a junior, he had been chosen unanimously, along with Eddie LeBaron of COP, on the Green-and-Gold All-Opponent team of 1949; the two wore the only players so honored that year. Other names on the NTC line-up were Ken Jackson, 240-pound All-Southwest Conference tackle from the University of Texas; Bucky Curtis, All-American end from Vanderbilt; Earl Stelle, stellar All-Coast defensive back from Oregon U; quarterback Don Logue and Ralph Cochran,of theUniversities of Arkansasand Alabama, respectively; “Skip'' Giancanelli,
running mate with Musacco on the previous year's Loyola team; Odie Posey, swift back hailing from the L. A. Rams, and so on down the list. The defensive line totaled a fast and vicious 210-pound average, while the offensive front wall weighed in a bit heavier but no clumsier.
The game started out with the Bluejackets holding the upper hand for a good part of the first quarter. Ollie Matson soon put a stop to all this nonsense by toting the ball from his own 45 to the Navy 17-yard stripe on five carries. From there Ed Brown hurled to towering Bob St. Clair for score number 1. A few minutes later Matson skimmed the waves for 24 and 34 yard gains to set up an other touchdown; Brown, apparently using a radar contraption, found Merrill Peacock some 24 yards downfield— presto, t.d. number 2. From then on it became a rout: Matson scored once. Brown bootlegged from the two, and USF had 26 points. With eleven seconds left in the game Ralph Cochran heaved 24 yards to end Gallie McCormack for the Navy's consolation score.

The Buckin' Bronc and El Dashing Don renewed old friendships in Kezar Stadium on a balmy Sunday afternoon, but it was not a social that the two were attending.
Instead, the affair carried the label "classic," a magic word that lures crowds into stadiums and sets partisan followers of either team into week-long hysteria. The Broncos were most cooperative in insuring a large turnout at the stadium: up to the previous week, Santa Clara had dropped four games to Pacific Coast Conference foes while annexing only one win, that over listless Loyola. But of a sudden, the Bronc kicked and bucked; when the dust had settled, the Arkansas Razorbacks found themselves mauled, 21-12, by a team who, by all rights, had no business playing football with them. So the stage was set, and over 32,500 fans awaited eagerly for the renewal of the twenty-second USF-Santa Clara grid contest.
Although the Dons led. 7-0, at the intermission, the Broncos were rolling and holding at the right time, so that the issue was not clear until later in the battle. USF came by its early score on a sustained 66-
yard march—56 of 'em garnered by Matson—and capped by a two-yard headlong plunge throuah 21 pushing and shoving players; oh yes, the selfsame Matson was the plunger!
The half time festivities entertained the crowd, true, but not in the manner the two teams were to do in the opening minutes of the second half. After futilely wasting the first half in trying to spring a swift back through the impenetrable Don front wall, Bronc quarterback Johnny Pasco seemingly found the right combination to another upset victory when, at long last, one of his many short screen passes clicked for a 64-yard scoring play. But elation turned into frustration when, on the next series of SC downs, George Carley pulled a "Roy Giorgi" by scooting over the goal stripe with an intercepted pigskin in his hands. This was too much for the tiring Mare, as the Dons rolled on to two more scores. A spine-snapping 80-yard drive, climaxed by Ollie's secont t.d. of the day, and a brilliant 54-yard spurt by Mr. Touchdown, U.S.A., found the Green-and Gold busting the Bronc for the second time in as many years.

USF-47 COLLEGE OF THE PACIFIC-14
The perennial Autumnal question regarding the comparative value of emphasizing offense or of stressing defense came to a head on a chilly mid-November night at Pacific Memorial Stadium, Stockton. Over 40,000 fans —the largest football flock in Grape Valley history—overflowed the new concrete arena to find out the answer to this and other questions: Would USF's defense (No. 1 in the nation) stop OOP's phenomenal rushing (No. 1 in the nation)? Would Ollie outspeed the Tiger's pride and joy, Eddie Macon? Could USF measure up to some of OOP's other opponents, like Oregon. Clerr.son, or Marquette?
The Don defense answered the first question in jig time by coming up with ihree t.d.'s in 20 minutes. The first two scores were gifts of Eddie Macon who hobbled lazy punts with the greatest of ease: Ollie skirted 6 yards around end for the first score after the first miscue, and Bob St. Clair recovered the second slip for the Dons next points. Two hundred and fifty pounds of tackle Mike Mergen collapsed on a punt blocked by Burl Toler, for the third touchdown; miraculously, the ball remained intact. That answered
Frank McLaughlin Dick Colombini
question number 1, as the Dons held a twenty point bulge at halftime.
The third stanza was all OOP's, as the rejuvenated Tigers rolled up several first downs and pushed over a hard-earned touchdown, the first foe to perform such a feat against the miserly Don defense of '51. But to settle question number two: early in period four, Ollie picked up a block by guard Lou Stephens and scampered and scampered until he reached the Tiger's der, some 68 yards away. The nearest defender, following at a safe distance behind, was none other than Eddie Macon! Next question.
Ed Brown racked up two more tallies when he hurled 27 yards to Merrill Peacock, and then, working from a modified punt formation, tossed 35 yards downfield to St. Clair. COP growled back harmlessly with a meaningless t.d. when Doug Scovil lobbed a short pass to Macon. The last USF six-pointer came in the last sweep of the clock's big hand: Ed Brown, espying no open receivers, bowled 31 yards down the middle for the Green-and-Gold's largest point total of the year. The output more than exceeded the points scored against COP by Oregon, Clemson, and Marquette COMBINED!

Like King Tantalus hungrily reaching for the enticing fruits which hung within arm's reach but to be denied them in the last minute, Ollie Matson, too, felt bitter frustration when several national records were at his fingertips, only to slip away in the matter of a few seconds. As events turned out, Ollie did walk away with a few titles, and his work during the year did not go for naught.
The epic duel between Loyola's record-busting quarterback, Don Klosterman, and USF'sAll-American nominee, one O. Matson, failed to attract more than sixteen thousand souls to the cavernous stadium; even the gigantic struggle between the two failed to materialize to its potential, as the heavy linemen battled it out instead. Jordan Oliver stacked an eight-man wall that moved as a man against Ollie's slightest twitch. The Dons, without the services of All-Coast Tackle Gino Marchetti who was suffering from a foot injury, could not check the defensive slants of such Goliaths as Ernie Cheatham (248 lbs.), Warren Routt (240 lbs.), and Maury Nipp (212 lbs.). But what the Don offensive forwards lacked the defensive linemen made up for, by limiting the Lion
runners to a mere 44 yards, less than one half a football field.
The contest started off sluggishly, but short runs by Matson, Carley and Jim Whitney, interspersed with timely pitches by Brown, produced a sustained drive to the Lion 6-yard stripe,, from where Ollie galloped over. A few minutes later Matson retired temporarily to the sidelines for equipment repair. Dick Huxley, taking over the fullback slot, caught the defenders relaxed for a moment, and shot through the line for 72 long yards to the 8 yard line. From there, Ed Brown tossed effortlessly to Ralph Thomas. Ollie later duplicated his first t.d. by outspeeding the defensive flankman on his right. Ed Brown, alert to every situation, prevented a Eton miscue from becoming a Lion touchdown by deftly slapping the ball from out of his own end zone.
Matson's 112-yard total fell four yards short of bypassing the all-time collegiate mark; his 21 t.d.'s for the season fell one short of tieing the record of 22, but nevertheless he did accrue other records and honors.

In 1949, a young and heralded sophomore arrived on the Hilltop. He could run. and he could kick, but oh, how he could pass! At 6'?." and 212, Ed was big, and ruined whole opposing teams with his big right arm. He tossed the pigskin short like a screaming rifle bullet, and heaved it down field like a whistling artillery shell.
This year's ROTC Cadet Colonel and alternate right halfback was bull-like George Carley, 187 pounds of snorting power. Sometimes called "Bonzo" because of his antics, George became strictly business on the field. In 1950, George had the best rushing average on the team. On defense, George prevented end runs like a sheep deg protecting its flock.
Ed was the second fastest wingman on the squad, and a potentially fine receiver. The 6T 193-pound end is a native of Santa Monica. He was particularly distinguished during Homecoming Week, escorting the Queen herself.
Roy, a San Franciscan, was largely used as line backer. A racehorse start enabled him to run four intercepted passes back to touchdowns during his Don career. He played the rest of his Senior year only in spirit from a hospital bed and a wheel chair, after a serious knee injury in the Fordham game.
Bill, President of both the student body and the Block Club, was a cunning field general behind Brown, and an excellent short passer. He starred in a spring intrasquad game when ho quarterbacked his team to an upset win. He reached the summit of his football career in the Camp Pendleton contest, directing a powerful ground offense through a fierce opposing line as the Dons shut out the Marines 26 to 0.
Through sheer ferociousness, 185-pound guard Greg Hillig could drive back a man with a weight advantage of 25 pounds. Around campus, the bespectacled Hillig resembled the "typical" biology student, but in a game looked entirely like a football player. A swift downfield blocker from Cochrane, Wisconsin, he was aiso a hockey star in prep school.
6'3" and 225 pounds, arms like milk cartons and a torso like a Greek god. That was left tackle Gino Marchetti. Fastest lineman outside of the ends, this Italian not only piled up plays to the inside, but also bashed down runners swinging wide. Charging into offensive backfields, Gino trampled many pass plays before they started. He became the best tackle on the Pacific Coast.
At 6'5” and 243, this blond Superman stood out like the hulk of a ship. Opponents tried, but couldn't move him without a crane. The impossible occurred in the COP game when everybody scrambled for a blocked punt that plunked into the Tiger end zone. Mike finally collapsed on the ball for six points, and the thing didn't even burst.GRADUATING SENIORS
Once hailed as the best prep back in the city, Peacock was shifted to end as a sophomore, and began racing under tosses far down the field. He holds the city prep high hurdle mark. He was the quickest flankman on the club, and a terrible threat to defensive secondaries, combining shiftiness with amazing catches.
Only one non-letterman appeared in the starting lineup. He was Ha! Sachs, a 6'2", 2C0-pound Pasadenan. The Dons were never forced to employ his field goal kicking to any great extent, and his rather polished public-speaking talents went almost entirely to waste. He did remain the prime mover on play after play during the course of nine games.
Two Santa Clara men were commencing a reverse fpllow-ing a Don punt when Mr. Sakowski tackled both of them in one lunge. A walking sports encyclopedia from Shenandoah, Penn., Vince met with a sorry ending in the Loyola contest, having two vertebrae cracked. He is working for a teaching credential, majoring in History.
“Rugged" Ralph played with a blend of superb conditioning and extreme savageness. He made few mistakes at either offensive or defensive end. Many of his catches came in the clutch, providing scores either directly or indirectly. Recognizing nis leadership even off the field, the student body selected him as vice president, a post very similar to his stadium skills, embodying a lot of work with a little glory.
During three years, everywhere enemy runners were, Burl Toler also was. lust behind the line, far out on the flanks, or deep in the secondary, he operated like a scythe. Tough to block and tough to escape from, the Cleveland Browns already hold the deed to this adhesive-like linebacker. Co-Captain Toler, a lanky 210-pounder, played offense as well as defense. Burl was one of the best liked men on the team.
Vince Tringali, a San Franciscan, who put in two years of junior college ball at guard and tackle before ontering USF, helped cement the middle of one of the country's most solid defensive lines. He played the ukulele at squad vocal sessions.
At 6' and 225 pounds, “Red" probably showed more improvement than any other player at USF in recent years. He didn't even play football in high school, but a steady and conscientious spirit won him a position on the first team. “Red" played offensive right guard during his senior term, and was elected corresponding secretary of the student body.
Ordinarily quite amiable, Weibel became one of the meanest characters in the game at his defensive end position. He sometimes formed a ukulele duet with Tringali, and will have a June destination of Allentown, Pennsylvania, to become legend with the rest of his 1951 teammates.ALL-AMERICAN OLLIE MATSON
On the best football team USF ever fielded, there had to be a best player. His name was Ollie Matson, his number “33," and his position fullback.
He could run like a frightened gazelle or hit like a bull moose, equally effective skirting the ends or belting the middle. On defense, the lithe 203-pound Negro blanketed a major portion of the secondary.
Matson could make that crucial first down, or break up a game with one savage burst. He inspired the men who blocked for him, and depressed those who had to tackle him.
At season's end, he gained the recognition that no Don had ever held before him: Ollie Matson became the Hilltop's first All-American.t't'PHHMRwpU

The rather unimpressive record of 11 wins and 13 losses by the USF basketball team for the 1951-52 season might lead one to believe that Phil Wopert's squad had a poor year. Had it not been for inexperience, however, the score of six of those games could have gone the other way.
The return for next year of Phil Vukicevich, Frank Evangelho, Keith Walker, K. C. Jones, Jerry Mullen, Dick Jensen, plus all the other members of the club, with the exception of Senior Walt Mehl, should provide the students and fans alike with one of the best teams the school has ever produced.
Already Sophomore Frank Evangelho is being likened to "the great" Don Lofgran. Phil Vukicevich has proved his worth by being the only Junior to be selected on the first string All-Northern California Team for 1952, while K. C. Jones has given promise of becoming an all-time Don great. One can easily see why the Dons hold high hopes for next year's casaba squad.

with a loss to Sacramento due to the failure of their highly regarded bus to last the long, tough struggle to our Capital. But a stellar performance against COP more than made up for this defeat, as Jerry Mullen paced USF to a 60-46 victory with 15 points.
Then came the club's victory over California, 51-42, and we seemed to be on our way, but USC put an end to the glint in our eyes as they ground out a 50-43 win. The following night saw the Hilltoppers outlast the Loyola Lions, 45-41, in a game which was sparked by K. C. Jones!
Kansas State followed and USF, starring Dick Jensen, played their best game of the season. Jensen scored 16 points and controlled both blackboards. The final score was 55-52 against a sguad that ranked seventh in the nation at the time.
It looked, though, as if USF had put all their eggs in one basket in the Kansas State game, for in the next two games against UCLA and Stanford they were very unimpressive and lost both.
Carl Lawson, Forward Jerry Harrington, ForwardThe All-College tournament in Oklahoma City was next on the schedule for the Don basketball team and they managed to win one while losing two. The Don's victim was Tulane, 65-57. The game was marked by a steady brand of ball from the whole club. The losses were to Oklahoma A $M, with Keith Walker hitting 19 points for our side, and Wyoming. Frank Evangelho made the All-Tournament second team.
The Dons returned home to play Oregon and this farce showed the team to be at its worst, as it lost to a squad which on any other night they could have beaten by ten points. But what happened to the USFer's in the period in between the Oregon loss and the tilt that followed three days later, could hardly be explained, as the Hilltoppers squelched the Seattle Chieftains, and their sensational Johnny O'Brien, 75-62. Both Frank Evangelho, with 28 points, and Phil Vukicevich, who was given the task of guarding O'Brien, offset the Seattle attack.
The Independent League followed after this game. The team started off on a strong note by defeating Loyola, San Jose, and Santa Clara in that order, but then got off key by losing to St. Mary's twice. Two torrid overtime periods had to be played before the Gaels took control in the

first game, 66-63. The second game score was 49 to 45. It was during these games v ith the Independents that Walt Mehl hit a hot streak v.’hich led to his being named "player of the week" two weeks in a row.
In the next contest the Dons again took it on the chin from the powerful Trojans, 64-58. This was followed by the Dons' eleventh defeat of the year to San lose. Santa Clara was next on the list for the team, and we suffered our fifth straight defeat.
The Independent Tournament found the Dons regaining their old form with a solid 56-46 win over the St. Mary's Gaels. But the following night saw the Hilltoppers blowing a 14-point lead to Broncos to lose 51-50. Thus USF lost its chance to become king of the Independents.
The finale against COP found the Dons hitting 51 per cent of their shots for a 69-52 victory. Rich Mohr and Walt Mehl led the way v ith 14 points apiece.
Jack Cannon, Tom Lampe, Carl Lawson, Jerry Harrington, Rudy Zannini, Clem Korte and Bill Bush did their part in the Dons' quest for victories, and much is expected from them in the next season.

After weeks pf being on the wrong end of many varsity elbows at practice the Junior Varsity was ready. Coach Ross Giudice took his fiery charges on their longest trip to open the season at Stockton. The College of Pacific J. V.'s, consisting of mostly second and third string varsity players, halted a USF desperation drive and came out on top. But there was an entirely different ball club on the floor against the Cal Blues when playing for the home fans. This USF squad was one of the few to tip the promising yearlings and lesser varsity stars of the Blue and Gold. After grabbing a sixteen point lead, coasting, and finally dropping a contest to Ralph Hillsman's City College Rams, the team became rejuvenated. Only one of the remaining thirteen scheduled games was lost.
This streak was led by captain and leading scorer Rudy Zannini. Although this All-City star from Saint Ignatius High School was the leader, the team was well-balanced and could not boast of a single player upon whom they must rely. In no game during the regular season did an individual garner twenty points. Leading scorers were: Bob Weibush, who was a real threat at the pivot post and was always on the boards; Bill Bush, whose fine defense and shooting earned him a varsity berth at the end of the season; Tag Walker, with his lightning layups, and Dick Lawless, with his terrific rebounding and, scoring two Oakland High boys, who adapted themselves quickly to the reverse action system and proved invaluable assets to the team; Ed Rueda, from Grant
Tech via the U. S. Army, the only married man on the squad, who was very difficult for the opposition to handle because of his excellent set shot; George Hayes, who shared the starting guard berth with Rueda and displayed a rough and tumble, fighting style which made him tough to stop; and finally, adding strength to the potent front line, Stan Buchanan, whose defensive hustle made it rugged for the opposition in the hole, and Ray Healy, whose deadly long shot chalked up many points on the scoreboard. Also deserving of mention are Bruce Cassayre and Les Brilliant who had difficulties and were forced to quit the club during the season.
A few of the teams beaten in this winning skein were highly touted San Diego Navy, Alameda Naval Air Station, S. F. Chinese, Marin J. C., St. Mary's J. V.'s twice, and San Jose J. V.'s once. The only loss was at San Jose State.
Ross Giudice and his boys were not satisfied with nightly tussles with the varsity and a full schedule of games, so they signed up for the PA Tourney. Under the name of Towne Delivery Service, the J. V.'s, led by Zannini's twenty-six points, scored an even one hundred points in the opener. In the second game the Moffat Field Flyers succumbed to the fastest breaking team on the Hilltop since the installation of reverse action. The first game, with five players hitting for double numbers, was in direct contrast to the third game, in which a cold USF team lost to West Coast Industries, coached by Rene Herrerias. With this game the USF J. V.'s ended a very successful season.USF SOCCER TEAM

A record turnout of 36 soccer aspirants greeted Coach Augustini ("Gus") P. Donoghue last fall. While team manager Victor Pesqueira was frantically searching for extra cleats, jerseys and shorts to outfit the army of kickers. Coach Donoghue surveyed the prospects for another unbeaten season. He had to admit that the outlook was very bright. True, gone were the Dons' All-American fullback Steve Negoescu, goal tender Angelo Carmassi, and center forward Dick Baptista. All three were members of the Dons' national championship eleven of 1949.
Returning to don the Green Gold were twelve lettermen, two of whom, Olufunmi Osibogun and Jimmy Diaz, were destined for All-American honors. Front-liners Ike Ozigbu, Jose Leon, and Manny Ortiz,

All-Conference selections last season, were among the veteran soccer-men. Also returning were backfielders Bill Cox, Maurice Beatty, Bob Lommori, Bill Bigarani, Jack Goodwin, Frank Fraher and Jim Kilday.
And the Hilltop attracted newcomers to the Soccer team. Some of the new members were Lorin Scola, a product of San Francisco's high school soccer league; A1 Rangel, a transfer from City College of San Francisco; and Isaac Montanez and Jose Franco y Perez from south of the border. These formed Coach Donoghue's needed reserve strength.
Sporting a record of 28 games without defeat and three consecutive Northern California crowns, the Dons opened the 1951 season against the Gaters of San Francisco State College. The defending champions vanquished the Gaters, 4-0. City College of San Francisco, Stanford, California, and Santa Clara also succumbed to the onslaught of the Hilltop Horde, as they annexed the first round title.
Second round play saw the Dons again assert their supremacy, as they once more swept through their slate unscathed.
The Conference crown earned the Dons a shot at the southern California titlist, UCLA, for the Pacific Coast championship. Bre'r Bruin spent his carfare for nothing. He bowed before the Hilltoppers 2-0.

The Soccer Bowl was next. Once before the Dons had played in the annual soccer classic. They gained a 2-2 stand-off with the Nittany Lions of Penn State in 1949.
Two behemoths of college soccerdom, the USF Dons and the Temple University Owls, collided for this year's title, National Collegiate Soccer Champions.
Ten thousand fans witnessed the clash between the two soccer titans in San Francisco's Kezar Stadium on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
The Owls' Ed Tatoian scored two quick goals in the first canto. Forming an impregnable cordon around the net for the remaining three periods, the Templars brought to an end the most imposing collegiate win streak—40 games without defeat.
Two Dons, Olufunmi Osibogun and Jimmy Diaz, both unanimous choices on the All-Conference team, were named to the mythical soccer All-American. Jose Leon, Ike Ozigbu, and Manny Ortiz were named to the All-Conference Eleven.
Reserve Jim Kilday was awarded the Thomas Mahoney Memorial Trophy, symbolic of his loyalty and examplary conduct both on and off the playing field.

Bill Cunningham Coach
H3 M H
Powerful, spirited, and experienced. This is how the 1952 USF baseball nine was described by opposition and scouts alike.
The backbone of the team was the left-handed hitting array of freshman Joe Arenivar, John Olcese, Eddy Rommell, Len Karp, and Gene Jacobs. Their power helped the Hilltoppers compile one of their finest seasons in recent history. Following them in the batting order were Hal Sandel, Lou Marietta and Dan Moriarity. Excepting for the substituting of Lauren Scola for John Olcese, and Dick Bechelli for Dan Moriarity as Coach Bill Cunningham saw fit, this is what enemy opposition faced during the season.
The first seven games saw the Dons win five, tie one, and lose one. Three of these tilts were pitched by ace right-hander Bob Thollander,and a look at some of the opposition whom he fired against showed why he was one of the best collegiate pitchers in the country. He held Stanford to a 3-3 tie, hurled a two-hit 5-2 victory over California, and struck out ten in succumbing to Santa Clara 3-2.
Joe Arenivar proved to be the answer to a coach's prayer, as Bill Cunningham found out. In Joe he had a capable lead-off hitter and surehanded outfielder. Since he is only a freshman, he should provide a good nucleus for future teams on the Hilltop.
John Olcese shared the second base duties with freshman Lauren Scola. John was noted for his hitting and Scola for his fielding, thus making it tough for a coach to choose between them when game time came.
Ed Rommil CaptainThird baseman Eddy Rommel 1 had a rather slow start this season, as he had trouble lowering his pegs to first base, but he found himself in that department and along with his hitting, it was no wonder that Coach Bill never lost faith in him.
The cleanup hitter of the Don team was Len Karp, and with his power no one disputed his right to that spot. In batting practice he often knocked balls into the bushes in right center field, by no means an easy feat. The powerful first sacker led the hitting the year before this.
Gene Jacobs was the big gun in the batting department. There is no doubt that every scout in the major leagues would like to see his name on the dotted line.
None of his hits were of the cheap variety, with most of them being lined into left field. He showed himself to be an outstanding clutch hitter as well as a fast centerfielder.
At shortstop was Hal Sandell, the best glove man of a strong infield, and also a good sticker at the plate. Hal and outfielder Lou Marietta, both seniors, put a lot of effort into making the team click with their spirit. Against Santa Clara, Lou rapped out three hits against the fast ball pitching of Dick Camilli.
Sophomore Dick Bechelli proved tough competition
aw for Dan Moriarity in the
catching department, but Dan had the edge because of his timely base hits during the season.
For outfield. Bill Cunningham had capable replacements in Bob Castagnetto and Keith Walker, who started late due to basketball.
Behind pitcher Bob Thollander, Cunningham had capable pitching staff in Lou Pisani, Joe Sarto. Jack Gallagher, Andy Conway, and Jerry Tamelier.
Scores of the first six games played were: Stanford 3, USF 3; Palo Alto Oaks 5, USF 13; San Francisco State 4, USF 5; St. Louis Brownies Rookies 3, USF 11; COP 5, USF 7; and Santa Clara 3, USF 2.
Since the prospects for the varsity were so promising and plentiful, Harvey Christensen took the capable job of coaching a J. V. squad. The squad consisted of such outstanding men as Bill Menagh, Paul Torrente, Jerry Donovan, Len Heinz and John Becker, the latter two composing the battery of pitcher and catcher respectively. The team had a late start in the season; however, it managed to organize rapidly and it continued on to win many games against Junior College and High School Varsities.1st Row: S. Liberty, J.

Charley CooperYELL LEADERS
School spirit at USF, sparked this year by a mighty football team, caught fire as the team rolled through an undefeated season. Three inspiring yell leaders, Jim Disney, Jack Goodwin, and Bill Kern, sustained fresh spirit among students even into the dying moments of each contest. Don rooters continually passed the final test of true school spirit, yelling as loudly when the team fell behind in scoring as they did when the team was winning.
This fighting Don spirit was not limited to rallies and home games alone but followed the team to games in such distant places as San Jose, Stockton, Los Angeles, and Boise, Idaho.
At each game the three yell leaders mingled through the rooting section, using every student's voice to urge the team to victory.
A necessary supplement to yell leaders and rooters was the unsung Games Committee led by Sherman
Hall. Arriving at rallies and games long before starting time, they prepared seating and always seemed able to accommodate every student.
As a glorious football legend was fading into the past, the basketball team had started its season. Soon Students began spurring the young hoopsters on through their most difficult games. Finally, during the tournament of independent colleges at the Cow Palace, this enthusiasm reached a peak as the team missed winning the tournament by just one point.
School spirit was not limited to football and basketball seasons alone. The Soccer Bowl, held in San Francisco between USF and Temple University, found hundreds of Dons supporting the team in a game that was strange to most of the rooters.
The Yell Leaders, Rooting Section and Games Committee this year renewed with added vigor the school spirit that has become a tradition at USF.

Ray Fazzio. Editor-in-Chiof
The perennial question of whether to have a yearbook or not arose again at USF this year. Would the time, work and money required for a yearbook overtax the resources of the University and its students? The question was finally answered when sophomore Ray Fazzio offered his services to the time-consuming job of editor, and presented plans which were considered feasible by both faculty and students. He rallied together a literary staff under Sophomore Phil O'Connor. Skillful George Stanley was chosen to aid O'Connor in compiling and writing material for the yearbook. Stanley and O'Connor molded together a staff of writers, consisting especially of lower classmen who showed outstanding literary ability.
Another Sophomore, Bill Ferrero, gathered together a group of camera enthusiasts and began photographing various school activities. These photographs served as an indispensible supplement to the yearbook's professional photography.

Yearbook sales were handled efficiently by Jerry Desmond. Every day, between classes, he and his assistants diligently sold books from a booth in the main hall of the University.
The foundation for the 1952 yearbook was advertising. Without it, the student body would have been financially incapable of carrying out plans for a yearbook in this and possibly in future years. Sophomore Bob Granucci agreed to handle the exacting work of advertising manager and soon found spirited students who would constitute the advertising committee. Daily they contacted business and professional men in order to assure the yearbook of solid financial groundwork.
These men, the core of the yearbook committee, gathered weekly in the library and discussed the many problems involved in successfully planning a yearbook. Although young, inexperienced and small in number, they continued to overcome difficulties. Only when they slowly turn the glossy pages of this book will they feel satisfied that their job has been completed.

Highlighted by a two-color Homecoming issue and a six-page senior rootball issue, the Foghorn continued to make its regular Friday morning appearance on the campus.
Some would praise the week's issue, others would be angered by it; all had a copy in possession by 11 a.m.
A St. Ives Law Club meeting or the student body elections, the USF-Santa Clara game or the Soph Drag, a faculty member's latest book or the College Players' coming production, the current biology lab project or the past week's intramural activity; all were included within the publication's pages along with the humor and anecdotes that invade the academic year of student and professor.
The staff was headed by Editor Walt Johnson, whose weekly "Johnson Rag" brought to light the big and little events of campus life. Capable Dick Nachtsheim was Walt's chief assistant in the job of Managing Editor. The genial Aryan, A1 Schlarmann,

Louis Marietta President
The Sanctuary Society, oldest student organization of the University, can also boast of an enrollment this year in excess of 40 members, who are led by Mr. Burke, the society moderator. The officers for the school year are Lou Marietta, President, and Joe Richards, Secretary.
As in past years, the USF group serves daily and Sunday Masses at nearby St. Ignatius Church, and in addition, each semester the Sanctuary Society assists at the church ceremonies attended by the student body. Among important assemblies are the Mass of the Holy Ghost, the Memorial Mass, for all the deceased of the faculty and the student body, and their friends, and the Graduation Mass at the close of studies.
Many new members have learned to serve mass under the tutelage of Mr. Burke, who emphasizes that a willingness to serve God is the only requirement for joining the Society. Each year the novices are welcomed to the association by elaborate ceremony on the altar of the Church.
Another yearly event is the picnic, held at the Villa Joseph in Los Gatos. This beautiful spot lends itself to a pleasant day for all the members, who always look forward to the springtime holiday.

On January 21,1945, Pope Pius XII declared that “the model of a Catholic, which the Sodality has set itself from the beginning to form, has perhaps never corresponded to the needs and contingencies of any time as today, and that no time perhaps has needed it so urgently as ours."—Golden Jubilee Address.
The small but active USF Sodality fulfilled just this need. Under its moderator, Fr. Ralph Brown, S. J. and Prefect Perry Hack this organization has been the spiritual backbone of the University. The Sodality met every Wednesday morning at ten minutes to seven and all attended Mass and received Communion. A business meeting followed in which active work of the Sodality was discussed. The annual Christmas Food Basket drive was sponsored by this society and proved through hard work on the part of the members and the cooperation of the student body to be a huge success. Discussion Forums were also a worthwhile activity of the Sodality. Every Thursday current questions relating to the Church or Religion were aired in public forum.

Bill Olmo President
One of USF's most recently organized clubs, and lately one of its most popular, the Math Club was organized in 1949 by Mr. Sussman. Upon his failure to return to USF during the next semester, the Math Club was not reorganized until his arrival this fall, when under the tutelage of Bill Olmo and himself, it sprang back into being. At the first of their regular Wednesday night conclaves, which showed an amazing attendance for a first meeting, organizer Olmo was elected president. Diminutive soccer star Ike Ozigbu became the vice president and treasurer, while Tony Mayta added the job of Math Club secretary to his growing list of activities. The Club's principal distinction during 1951 was its success where so many older clubs were either unsuccessful or lethargic, in fielding an intramural football team. Directly on the heels of their gridiron successes came an artistic and popular booth at the traditional Winter Carnival. The Math Club, besides meeting at USF on Wednesday nights, holds bimonthly gatherings with a similar organization at the College of the Holy Names in Oakland. Moderator Irving I. Sussman and faculty advisor Thomas J. Saunders, S. J., hope for greater success for this fastest-growing and quickest-to-catch-on of all Don organizations.

BLOCK SF CLUB
The Block SF Club of the University of San Francisco is composed of all athletes who have fulfilled the requirements of the sport in which they participate and whose scholastic standings meet with given requirements. Its purpose is to form a closer society, to establish prestige for athletic ability of the students, to promote better relationship between the members of this society and the University and those associated with the University.
Its primary activities are its annual spring smoker and its farewell dinner, which was initiated last year, in honor of senior athletes. This dinner met with such
success that it was decided that it too should be held annually.
In the fall semester the activities of the Block Club were limited due to the full schedules of the football and basketball teams. However, with the coming spring semester elections were held and plans for the future school months were made. The newly elected officers of the Club were: President, Burl Toler; Vice President, Harold Sandell; Secretary, Joe Sarto; and Treasurer, Bob Thollander. The moderator of the Block Club is Roy C. Hall, Dean of the School of Business Administration.First Rovr: J. Coleman, R. Ainslie. Second Row'; P. Colline. D. Stoesscr. C. Lynch, D. Olcemendy. W. Tognatti, A. Labrodor. A. Caatoznagna.

The Scabbard and Blade Club is USF's chapter of a national honor society for upper division ROTC Cadets, and is one of the University's most active and sociable organizations. Under the able administration of Cadet Captain John J. Corrigan, club president, and vice president Cadet First Lieutenant Jack Gottsche, the Scabbard and Blade sponsored numerous activities for its members. First on the list of these
fetes, of course, are the two formal Military Balls. Other dances, several of them informal, and one a joint affair with the University of California's chapter, brought the Scabbard and Blade to the first rank among Don clubs and organizations. In addition to their dances, the military society held a club picnic and a festive pledge dinner. Other officers include A1 Coleman, Ed Goeas, Bob McDonald, and Bob Hoots.

A spaghetti feed at the beginning of spring semester was the setting for the installation of the officers: Ann Ashburn, President: Alyce Cress, Vice-President; Beverly Luchetti, Secretary; and Mary Harrison, Treasurer. The highlights of the semester were a banquet at the Huntington Hotel and a successful dance at the climax of the summer session.
Fall semester tripled the membership, and the new members were welcomed at a dinner at the Backyard. The success of their doll booth at the Winter Carnival, their active participation in the Homecoming rally and dance, and their exhibit during club week made them a popular organization.
The new officers for spring semester, Thomasene Eklund, President; Barbara Keller, Vice President; and Bernadette Boyle. Secretary-Treasurer, were installed at a dinner at Three Little Swiss. Continued success is anticipated under the guidance of their new moderator, Father Ralph Brown, S. J.THE BIO-CHEMICAL CLUB
Emmet Smith Prosidont
Men of all branches in the science department—chemistry, biology, pre-med or physics— enjoy the good fellowship of the Bio-Chemical Club. It is possibly the oldest chartered organization on campus, with a mellow history dating back to the days of old St. Ignatius College. The Club meets approximately every two weeks and undertakes many activities of both professional and social interest. These activities include field trips to industrial research laboratories, guest speakers and movies on technical topics, and the presen ! tation of papers at regional conferences. These alternate with picnics, intramural sports, and the late hour harmony of rich masculine voices. An annual Halloween dancel presented in cooperation with the Wassman Society, has become a college tradition.] The year 1951-52 has been very successful, with a large and enthusiastic membership.] Emmet Smith holds the helm, with Jack Fennel veeping, while Joe Cummins quills the records and correspondence, and Bob Dummel broods over the moneybags. Stalwart John Decker is the sergeant-at-arms. And long after the sharp scent of formalin is gone, the twilight hours in quant lab forgotten, a USF science graduate will remember the robust meetings of ’The Biochem.” They beiieve that their group is not just a club, but one of the permanent traditions of the University.

THE WASMANN BIOLOGICAL SOCIETY
The Wasmann Biological Society, one of the oldest and most active organizations of the campus, has for its purpose the promotion of the biological sciences, particularly by fostering among its members a spirit of lively interest and active participation in the solution of the problems of biology.
The Society was founded in 1936 by Dr. Edward L. Kessel in honor of the great Jesuit biologist. Father Felix Wasmann.
In the year 1951-52 the Society was led by Allen Calvert as president; Tony Longo, vice president; Ann Ashburn, secretary; and Martha Newman, treasurer.
Bimonthly meetings were held featuring prominent guest speakers and scientific movies. Field trips, including excursions to various centers of scientific research, were conducted throughout the year as one of the many phases of club activities. At Homecoming Week, the Wasmann Society took first place in the exhibits with their extensive scientific display. Commencing this year a book will be contributed to the biology library in the club's name. Supplementing these more formal activities were picnics, parties, and a ski trip, which were highlighted by the popular Halloween Dance and the annual Wasmann Alumni Banquet.

Ed Hurley President
On November 7,1951, hundreds of gay, fun-loving USF theatre-goers flocked to the Little Theatre at Fulton and Cole Street to see the rollicking comedy, "Two Blind Mice,” the College Players' opener for the 1951-52 season.
Before the largest audience in Director Stu Bennett's memory, Samuel Spewack presented his sprightly sketch of the hilarious adventures of two charming old ladies (Marjorie Werby and Dixie Shaw) who persisted in operating a government office three years after it had been abolished. Don McLaughlin starred as the frolicsome Tommy Thurston trying to win back his sweetheart, Karen Norwood (Betty Jane Bennett) from the pernickety Dr. Henry McGill (Robert Johnson). James Lynch was the bellowing arm-swinging Senator Kruger who disliked everyone including Barry Churton, John Collins, Jerry Dalton, Dave Devincenzi, and Milt Gottardi, who were, among others, also featured in the cast. In short, "Two Blind Mice” was one of the most successful and funniest shows of the year.
It was at 8:36 o'clock on the evening of January 11, 1952, when USF theatre-goers fidgeted expectantly with programs while the restless strain of the Funeral Dirge from "Hamlet” died away and the curtain lifted on the Victorian thriller "Gaslight."
The scene of action took place in a sinister residence located in the Pimlico district of London, circa 1880. The suavity and bitterness of the lead, Mr. Manning-ham (Milt Gottardi) pervaded the entire household with a touch of mystery as he demoniacally tortured his frightened wife (Betty Jane Bennett) into near insanity in order that the ownership of the house and the jewels hidden therein would pass into his hands. Both Gottardi and Theodore Moore as the jocular and friendly Inspector Rough who rallied Mrs. Manning-ham's spirits, wove into the plot an air of suspense that mounted to the play's stirring climax.
Rounding out the cast of five—the smallest in Director Stu Bennett's memory, were the two supporting headliners of the show, Patricia Barry, playing the part of the brassy maid Nancy with flirtatious eyes on Mr. Manningham, and John Warren, who was portrayed in the role of the prim and proper butler Henry, instrumental in concealing Inspector Rough
on his frequent visits from Director
the preying eyes of Manningham.
"Gaslight” was not only a very enjoyable play, but it was the comment of many of those who saw it that among all of Director Stu Bennett's dramatic presentations, this was one of the finest.
TRIUMPH OF THE CROSS
Jim Pravottoni Chziat
March and Easter-tide saw the release of the imposing production, “Triumph of the Cross,'' Director Stu Bennett's first presentation of a passion play. Written by Fr. Thomas O'Brien, S. J., and consisting of a cast of eighty, the play enjoyed its World Premiere at the USF Little Theatre. Members of the main cast worked in complete pantomime while a narrator (Jud Holstein) and two choirs, consisting of some twenty voice-speaking choristers, shed light on the events taking place on stage.
Ray Neal was cast in the role of Judas, while other leads included Jim Pravettoni as Christ, Milt Gottardi as Peter, Joe Scudero as Pilate, Ted Moore as Caiaphus, and Marion Brunn and Monica Murphy in the roles of Mary and Mary Magdalene respectively.
Production problems and finances were another highlight of the season. Plays ranking as "firsts'' in these respects were “Two Blind Mice," which grossed the largest
Marion Brunn Mary
Milt Gottardi St. Potor
profit of any play in all Producer Stu Bennett's experience at the Hilltop. "Gaslight' took another "first" as having the longest rehearsal schedule of any of Director Stu Bennett's productions. Rehearsals for the cast of five occupied a period extending over two months. "Triumph of the Cross” had the largest cast, was the most expensive production put on at the Little Theatre, expenditures exceeding some fifteen hundred dollars, and had the largest set which extended into the auditorium proper. The huge task of construction was under the supervision of College Players President Edward Hurley.
Among all the organizations, clubs, and societies on the University campus, probably very few have a greater or nobler tradition to maintain.
Stirred on by that same spirit of devotion to the College Players group that has long stirred the minds of those that have come and passed on before them, the College Players of the year 1951-52 have championed those ideals and have added a brighter page to the history of one of our University's most illustrious oraanizations.

festivities. Those festivities got off with a loud bang Friday evening, at the monster rally on the Don campus. Homecoming gueen Jean Carol Kindy was escorted to the stage amid ceremonious torchlight and band music, where she was crowned to reign over the entire celebration. The whole audience then joined in yells and cheers, and in the singing of the USF Victory Song, which was followed by the introduction of speakers. The crowd was addressed by Thomas J. Mellon, President of the Alumni Association, Bill Henneberry, team captains Marchetti and Toler, and Joe Kuharic and his assistants.
Variety entertainment followed on the list, and the final event of the night was a dance in the USF Auditorium, highlighted by a novelty step contest between alumni and students. After the dance, losers and winners alike went home to rest for the next day. There would be more celebration and dancing on Saturday. The Alumni registered for "their day" early Saturday morning, and immediately set out to watch the USF-Santa Clara soccer game, which the Dons won.
From 12 noon until 1:30, the individual graduating years held their reunions and luncheons, being entertained while eating by the USF band and Glee Club. After lunch, the Alumni were invited to participate in special events, and as was expected, they complied with alacrity.
These special events included regional meetings of the Law Society and USF Alumni Chapters, a Canasta-Bridge tournament for their wives, USF-Fordham Football Movies and the displays of the various university clubs, put together and managed by the undergrads. The alumni spent their afternoon viewing and taking part in these special
"Welcome home, Dons!" shouted the USF Foghorn of November 2, 1951. "Welcome to the greatest Don Homecoming of all time. Hundreds of Old Grads have returned to the Center of the Universe bounded by Fulton and Parker, Golden Gate and Masonic. A famous block, one filled with memories that have endured through all the years: memories which will be refreshed this week-end in the biggest back-slapping fiesta that the St. Ignatius towers have ever looked down upon."
The University's first full-scale Homecoming celebration had already begun Thursday afternoon at the Marines’ Memorial Club with the Kick-off Luncheon. Presidents and football coaches of USF and Santa Clara, the Homecoming grid opponent, had addressed the alumni, welcoming them to the four days ofCOMING
events, and then gradually drifted away from the USF campus, most of them going to home or hotel room to dress for the festive Homecoming dance to be held that evening.
The Foghorn had hailed this dance as the point where "the celebrations will have Reached the fever pitch." It was most certainly that, as joyous parties of students with their dates and alumni with their wives trekked to the Tanforan Turf Club for an evening of exhilarating fun that lasted for many into the wee hours of the morning.
The University of San Francisco, however, students and grads both, was up early Sunday morning for Mass. Many Dons of former days attended the High Mass celebrated in their honor on the familiar altar of St. Ignatius
sermon was lent Raymond
Church, at which the inspiring
?iven by Academic Vice-President rcayrnona . Feely, S. J. After mass and breakfast, the Dons of 1902 and 1952 were off to the game with Santa Clara. The story of that Massacre that was such a fitting conclusion to USF's first great Homecoming is clear and vivid enough in the minds of both Don and Bronco rooters. USF won, 26 to 7, and the students of all years began filing out of Kezar Stadium, many to parties where they would try to carry the savor of this greatest of Homecomings over a few more precious hours.
It was a great Homecoming. But it was only great because of the'men behind it who made it so great; because of Bill Muller, grad of 1938, who was general chairman of it all; because of Joe Troy and Jim Disney, who were AS-USF co-chairmen; and because of all the "unsung heroes" on their staffs. The class of 1952 salutes them; they will further realize their worth when it comes time for their first Homecoming.Evening Student Council rocoives Charter
The night of December first found the Sophomore Class gathering at the scenic San Francisco Golf and Country Club for their traditional Soph Drag. Weeks of preparation by the hard working Dance Committee to secure a suitable site for the dance was rewarded as 300 happy students glided across a colorfully decorated dance floor to the music of popular Herb Falconer and his orchestra. The energetic committee, led by Dorn Tarantino and Jim Quinn, included a cross section of sophomores—Jack Brennan, Don Rebholtz, Bill Sandbach, Larry McCarthy, Bob Treseler, John McCarthy and Phil O'Connor. Besides having traditional significance, the dance also marked the end of a successful football season. Freshmen, Juniors and Seniors joined Sophomores in purchasing a surprisingly high number of advanced bids. Threatening weather subsided as Dons traveled to the beautiful country setting of the dance. Numerous blissful moments were culminated as the band played the final strains of "Goodnight Sweetheart." As couples filed into their automobiles all agreed that this had been the most successful dance of the semester.MILITARY BALL
The two military organizations at USF, the Scabbard and Blade and the Pershing Rifles, set December 14 as the date of the Regimental Military Ball. Forming a dance committee, Presidents Howard Hill of the Pershing Rifles and John Corrigan of the Scabbard and Blade worked vigorously to secure tallies, prepare decorations and set the stage for a successful dance. Dance co-chairman, Theodore Mundorff and Albert •Sullivan assembled members from both clubs in combined preparation for the dance. Through the efforts of the clubs' moderators, Major Paul Berger and Captain Adolph Serfin, the elite Presidio Officers' Club was obtained as a site for the dance. Then the orchestra of Jimmy Blass, popular among colleges in the bay area, was added to the scene as a final measure of success. The ball was termed by veteran members of both clubs as the most enjoyable of all military dances.BLOOD
On January eighth and ninth, the faculty and students, through the efforts of the Scabbard and Blade Society, were given the opportunity to donate their blood to the armed forces.
Time was a vital element as only two days were available on which the blcod could be given. Through the direction ofdonations
Bob Laws and the public addresses of Fr. Scannell over 250 pints of blood were donated.
Credit should also be given to Colonel Guy H. Stubs, PMST, and to the entire ROTC staff, who backed the initial undertaking and who canvassed their classes for donors.FR. DUNNE ADDRESSES THE STUDENT BODYCompliments

The Schola Cantorum, under the auspices of the University's new Music Department, received its formal inauguration on January 8, 1952, at a reception hosting many of the community's musically minded citizens.
The inauguration was honored with the presence of Pierre Monteux, distinguished conductor of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Fr. Lyons found this a fitting time to announce the foundation of a scholarship bearing the famed maestro's name to be instituted at the University.
Membership in the Schola Cantorum is open to
people of all races and creeds, to college people and non-college people. The group gathered weekly in the auditorium of Roosevelt Junior High School.
Under the directorship of Dr. Giovanni Camajani, the Schola Cantorum gave its first public appearance at the Veterans Auditorium in May. Highlights of the program were "Jephite," by Carissimi; "Providebam Domino," by De Lassus; the" Alleluia," by Scarlatto; "In Ecclesius," by Gabrielus; and the "Hymn for Rogation Sunday," by Canning.
The Schola Cantorum ended the semester with great success and can look forward to coming years.
