Text from Pages 1 - 216 of the 1959 volume:

the last ferry boat leaves san francisco and with it went a full page of history 2man pushes himself into the heavens and hopes to play with the stars 3to ca university that is dedicated here at the university of son fran-cisco the wisdom of the past guides the progress of the future, eras may come and eras may go, but the truth never falters, never changes. universities are not only teachers of men but moulders of the leaders of men. in today's bitter struggle between the free world and the slave mind . . . the university of san fran-cisco proudly proclaims that it has always taught and will continue to teach the creed found on the following 14 pages. the university of san francisco's CREDO! 5mure believe in -time personal dignity of man. 7wire believe that man Has natural rights which come from Cod and not from the State. 8we are therefore opposed to all forms otf dictatorship which are based on the philosophy that the "total man" [totalitarianism] belongs to the state. 9we believe in the natoral right of private property but I ike wise that private property Has its social obligations.we believe that Labor Has not only rights but obligations. 1213 ■■we care vigorously opposed to call -forms of "racism"— persecution or intolerance because of race. 14I 16wire believe in the intense study of the tenents and tactics of those who would seek to destroy those essential liberties of American democracy 17we believe that "academic freedom" should not be used which destroy all freedom. 18table dedication fro truth.......I administration men........22 lOOth graduating class • • • 32

activities of the city government needs a strong and intelligent hand to guide its progress, and so does a university. the city government has the honorable george Christopher and our university has the rev. john connolly, s.j. both men play a vital part in the growth of san francisco, for both the university and the city are a part of each other, and what benefits one benefits both and what endangers one endangers both. fr. connolly heads the university's administration but the running of a university is not a one man job and so on the following pages the don presents the administration men.23rev. charles dullea, s.j. father rectorfeather president rev. john f.x. connolly my dear graduates: as alumni of the university of san francisco you must be ever mindful of the obligation that is yours as Christian men and women, you are on the threshold of a new and challenging world marked by the most extraordinary scientific achievements in history, man, like the satellites that he has launched, has soared high in the pursuit of scientific knowledge which has changed the very face of the earth, during your years at the university, you have been engaged in the pursuit of truth wherever it was to be found, either in the cultural heritage of the past or in the most recent discoveries of the present, you have been imbued with the conviction that truth is eternal and that our discovery of truth is but a further participation of the infinite wisdom of God. as men and women of the university of san francisco, you must never cease in the pursuit of truth for this is the mark of the educated man. but as Jesuit graduates you must do more . . . you must strive with vigor and constancy for the good, love of truth and desire for the good must be the characteristics of your life. it is my earnest prayer for each of you that by your knowledge and your example you may exert the true Christian leadership which the world so urgently needs today. father president sits symbolically behind a machine devised to change the shape of tho earth, his job is to guide the academic activity of this university and he does so with a sure and a steady hand. rev. john f.x.

willis cgan s.j. flank rev. john f.x. connolly, s.j., our president. 31stop and think, for only a second. imagine 100 and four years back before prohibition, teddy roosevelt, san francisco's famed earthquake, almost as far back as California's gold rush with its undeniable forty-niners, that's when this university sprung roots, and now it will graduate its 100th class. in many, maybe too many, respects this graduating class is like so many others in the past, but this class is different, it represents the fulfillment of an ideal. 100 classes of students will have completed their undergraduated training at the university of san francisco, and this is mute testimony that those beliefs on which this university stands are sound and true and do work, these beliefs are not merely 14 separate sentences, they are a code to follow through life and they are the guide that carried this university through 100 graduating classes. in this light the don is proud to present the 100th graduating class, and thanks must go to lee vandendale for an ' imaginative job of putting the section together and to tom collins for his excellent portraits. 32bernard w. antes biology san francisco

science to mould manhood to develop the entire man, mind and heart, body and soul; to form as well as to inform; to train the mind to analyze rather than to memorize, so that it may distinguish truth

the God who promulgated them . . . the eternally vital principles of truth and of justice; 100 Christ, crucified, our Savior . . .lives lor us to instil into youth the neglected doctrine that morality must govern economics and politics, and that modern ills cannot be cured merely by shitting economic systems and changing political structures; pointing out that every system must be administered by men over men and that selfishness, greed, dishonesty and lust for power are moral evils which cannot be eliminated by civil legislation but only by moral restraint; to revet to the minds of youth the truth that all hatreds, whether of class or race or creed or foreign nations, rot civilization, and that irrespective of one's belief, the sole and ultimate solution of economic, political and social ills was epitomized by Him Who said: "thou shalt.love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart and with thy whole mind; . . . thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." this is the proud tradition, this is the aim and objective of the education imparted by the Jesuit fathers and lay faculty of the university of san francisco. iimcll yermatek businessthe spirit of the don the spirit of the don is the don himself in study and in play, the story of the university is told best by its students, for they are the university, they act out their parts which makes this unlike all the other institutions of higher learning everywhere, the spirit or mood of the university is unique and can only be seen in the students as they go about their daily duties, sometimes the mood is frolic, other times seriousness, but always it is a changing spirit of life at u.s.f. 102104who us? steal a desk? the cool calm calculating grating of prisoners of war insures peace even if there must be war and more!

church, twin spires stretch their fingers heavenward, symbolic of the spiritual life which must be developed if the university is to train the whole man. the men in black known as jesuit fathers impart to their students the paramount importance of the religious truths on which the university was founded over a century ago. these truths become an integral part of the student's university life. for only if the universities produce men and women who understand the basic and significant truths of life can the challenges presented by the dazed and changing world hope to be met. let us pray "i believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth;115911two thousand years ago, Christ arose. He did it silently, there were no trumpets, there were no cannon, there were no shouts, yet that act shook the world, how apt. Christ is silent, yet shouts. He is heard at midnight in calm wind, seen in the flower, touched in the water, smelled in the air, tasted in the fruit. sensativity is a gift from Him. it is the ability of sense, it is nourished and well-kept; rarely is it inborn, it is out-born of study and circumstance, humility and prayer. the circumstance mingled with study is here at this university, we students of the fifty million men of student age at this university are lucky. luck and the will of God might be drafted and made one; however, this is a matter for the theologians to ponder, the university of san francisco is a catholic university with catholic ideals, catholic traditions, and catholic teachings, not fly-by-night ideals and traditions, but traditions and ideals tested by the heat of centuries. the university's teaching mode is not a mode making man an animal to be scrutinized in relation to his surroundings, but a mode that makes man the maker and modifier of his surroundings. we at the university are proud of our religious heritage, and here at the university we learn the principles that will guide our actions through the long journey of life. 117"He descended into Hell, the tHird day He arose again from the dead; 1 1 8 suHered under pont us pWate, v as CTUcUicd, d ed and was buried."the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. amen." the apostles' creed ...it is said, and with much authority, that elephants wander through the bliss of life clinging to the tail of the elephant in front of them. in this manner, most of the pondering pachyderms plod through their existence without ever knowing where they are going, why, or how they are going to get there. but even these thick-skinned beats need a leader, for whom there is no tail to grab and follow. so too at the university . there must be a leader, but since a university is indeed a diverse and complicated experience with many different paths to follow, there must be not one but many leaders. obviously, also, the men and women of a university do not follow as blindly as do the elephants, but still there must be the student leaders to suggest the "paths" to follow, to these this section is so dedicated. 122bill ivcy, treasurer frank dc benedetfi, b.s.c. chairman bill macchi, n.f.c.c.s. senior delegate ken collins, secretarythe d His government student government is just that, officers arc elected by the men and women of the university, and these officers are entrusted with the responsibility of representing the student body. to represent their fellow students, these elected officers hold weekly legislative meetings, here the fate of student government is planned and argued out. since most of the student body arc merely informed on what the officers conclude, the '59 don thought it nice to take the men and women of the university behind the scenes of a typical, dramatic meeting. the picture to the right is the first peep inside, for more turn the page. boycr august, bob ferrera, and parliamentarian cd chow.student legislature frank dc dencdefti, b.s.c. chairman; don drcscl, head yell leader ken collins, secretary; bill ivey, treasurer; bill macchi, n.f.c.c.s. president juniors: charlie fracchia, representative; joe di gregorio, representative; bob du rardi president seniors: frank trumbower, president, cd griffin, representative; rich Icvcrone. representative freshmen: dan ritter, representative; armond vasquex, representative; lee avcllone, president sophomores: tom valvcrdc. representative; mike me cabc, representative; ken bolicr, presidentthe cfl as part of the system of training students in the art of self-government, this university has a judicial as well as an executive and legislative branch of student government. throughout the year four upperclassmen sat on the student court considering eases of disciplinary infractions, fortunately there were no major controversies during the year. it can be said that they conducted themselves according to the noblest traditions of Christian equity. ray williamson, chief justice 127 gcorge jercichthe '59 don the time has come, they say, to speak of many things, midnight meetings, fun and sweat, and maybe lots of good hot java. well, it didn't happen that way on the don — not this year, nineteen hundred and fifty-nine. instead, the big story of the book is best told in solid cooperation—and the fact that the staff numbered but three. but while the student staff may have been small, the cooperation from professional people was monumentous. pat and tom collins did a great job with the photography, as did braxelton and hanscom with the printing. and two sophomores, one a pre-cd student and the other majoring in political science, turned in skilled performances, helping at every turn in putting out this book. don't forget the students, without whose help this book would not at all be needed. hope you like it. we do.

and there's the slightly fantastic basketball power that couldn't lose for winning, and the soccer squads that have yet to lose in how many years now? these are a few of the many memories that float from the record books, but can it be wondered why the don is the sport he is? so to the sporting dons wherever they might be, this section is happily dedicated, and to bob crowley, section editor, here's to a job well done. 168h portrait of the winnioges coac 170 if someone asked you to name america's most successful coach in terms of won and lost records, who would you pick? bud wilkenson, architect of the university of Oklahoma's fabulously successful football empire? the late knutc rockne, grid mastermind at notre dame in the thirties? or perhaps adolph rupp, grim builder of basketball champions at kentucky? if you picked any of these gentlemen, you'd be wrong. what may be the winningest coach in the united states coaches the world's most popular sport, fields teams regu- larly right here in northern California, yet, despite the perennial success of this man, he is virtually unknown. this wonder-worker is the highly respected dr. a. p. donoghue, soccer coach at the university of san francisco. don-oghue plays a dual role on the hilltop, his primary position is director of admissions, and here he is known as "dr. donoghue,'' an important member of the university administration, on the soccer field, he's "gus," possibly the winningest athletic coach in the 49 states. gus dohoghue's soccer teams have swept to the championship of the northern California intercollegiate soccer conference eleven straight times, have been ranked in the top ten in the nation ever since 1948, have won 85 per cent of their games since 1947, are currently working on a 37-gamc win streak, have held the soccer co-championship of the united states, and have had 15 all-americans in the last ten years. the soccer team hasn't lost a game in four seaons. usf's soccer dons have done this without scholarship aid of any kind, on a limited athletic budget that leaves very little for minor sports, and without any type of concentrated recruiting system. in an era when successful sports teams cannot be sustained for any length of time, even in the minor sports, without an intense system of booster clubs, financial angels, and recruiters, donoghuc's achievements are unique. yet every fall, donoghue is the picture of quiet pessimism when someone asks about his chances for the coming kickball season, he paints a doleful picture of injuries, incligilities, lack of depth, losses by graduation, powerful opponents, and all manner of miseries, yet every season for the last ten years his soccer squads have all but annihilated their opponents. this year the don booters won all their games, took still another northern California soccer conference title, and defeated cal tech for the championship of the west coast, the success of this year's team and all the other soccer teams of the last ten years, can only be credited to one man, gus donoghue. to you dr. donoghue, every student of the university expresses their gratitude for a job well done. coach gus donoghuc carefully prepares the list of his starting team prior to another northern California soccer conference game, the wisdom of his selections is evidenced by his outstanding record of victories. during the game, coach donoghuo directs the action from the bench, his anxious face reflects the tenseness of the contest, as the dons fought to garner another win. the game won, the players departed, gus donoghue stands alone in the locker room, his pensive expression probably indicates that he is already looking, ahead to next week's encounter.the undefeated champions 1958-1959 soccer team: front row, left to right, stan jonah, waync sandion Ico-capt,), frank palazuclos, mauricio salverra, marcclo gumucio, les lezeano, eric fink, luis duran. second row: dr. donoghuc, sal iraheta, john harper, ludwig soddemann, tony njoku (co-capt.l, fim brophy, serge burenin, herb weiss, cd duran, gcorge tubman.best on the coos ? best in the nation? in the last few years the luster and the prestige which have accompanied the acquisition of national basketball championships have tended to overshadow the accomplishments of usf's most successful, but least publicized athletic endeavor, soccer, since 1930 the tradition of a winning soccer team on the hilltop has been honored by almost every group of don booters; this year's ball club was no exception. the 1958-1959 version of the usf soccer team was one of the strongest ever fielded on the hilltop, under the skillful direction of dr. augustine p. "gus" donoghue, the dons annexed their eleventh consecutive northern California intercollegiate soccer conference championship, in compiling a record of seven wins and no losses in league competition, the booters completed their fourth consecutive undefeated season, an even more remarkable achievement, was the unprecedented 57 goals which were scored in conference play, while the opposition could register only two points against them, the devastating mixture of a high scoring offense and an air-tight defense produced a combination which no team came close to matching. at the outset of the season, coach "gus" donoghue painted a picture of the prospects of this year's soccermen, citing graduation losses and "greatly" improved opponents as major obstacles which had to be surmounted, the amazing success of this year's club shows how effectively these challenges were met and overcome. with a strong contingent returning from the 1957 championship team, including all-conference performers tony njoku and wayne saindon and veterans stan jonah, eric fink, serge burenin, mauricio salaverra, sal iraheta, ed duran, louic duran and josc backo-vic, coach donoghue began to build a ball club, four outstanding newcomers, frank suarez, ludwig soddermann, herb weiss and bill gallindo provided donoghue with the additional ingredients he needed to mould a winning team. three practice games prior to the opening of the league season furnished the opportunity to integrate the new players into the usf style of play and to correct any apparent weaknesses, the dons opened their exhibition slate with a stunning 9-4 upset victory over an alumni club, which was described "as the best alumni eleven ever faced by a don team." in the following weeks, the rapidly improving hilltoppers crushed the strong san francisco scots (10-3) and tamoroc, a team composed of filipino players. aided by the experience gained in the practice games, the dons opened the defense of their conference crown with a surprisingly easy 5-0 victory over California; the team rated as their greatest potential threat, gathering momentum with each game, the green and gold soccer players posted consecutive triumphs over Stanford (8-0), California aggies (9-2), santa clara (F5-0), san jose state (8-0), city college of san francisco (2-0), and san francisco state (10-0). only in the city college contest were the powerful dons extended to any degree; the usf players rate ccsf as their toughest opponent. after the completion of their regular season play, the hilltoppers accepted an invitation by California tech to play in a post season game at pasadena. with relative ease and workmanlike efficiency, the dons disposed of tech 8-0. evidence of the caliber of the ball players who composed this year's talent-laden squad, is demonstrated by usf's domination of the all-conference team, six dons won berths on the all-conference eleven: forwards wayne saindon, frank suarez, herb weiss and ludwig soddermann, halfback tony nyoku and fullback gcorge tubman were named to the first team, in addition, halfback serge burenin received honorable mention for his exceptional defense work. as usual, the dons were acknowledged as the strongest team on the coast because of their impressive record of achievements, however, since the hilltoppers failed to play the leading soccer teams from other sections of the country, and since the selection of teams for the mythical top ten in soccer is dominated by eastern writers and coaches, the question "were the dons the best in the nation?" would seem to go unanswered, nevertheless, there is no doubt in the mind of every university of san francisco student that this year's soccer team was the no. 1 team in this country. frank piliiud«i was the sparkplug and the playmakcr of this year's soccer team, from his forward position, frank didn't score very much, because he was content to set up goals for his team mates, his perfect passing and expert dribbling won him the respect of every player in the conference and a berth on the all-conference squad.co-captain waync sandion was part of the don't high-scoring forward wall, hit adept footwork and rugged defemive play were vital factort in enabling the hilltoppcrt to annex their eleventh conteeutivc conference title, waync wat tclcctcd to the all-conference team for the second straight year. goalie tim brophy was the loneliest man on the soccer field this season, the stout don defense seldom gave opposing players an opportunity to attempt a goal, when a rival did manage to take a shot, tim was always there to block it. The fact that only two goals were scored against usf is due in a large part to the efforts of this unsung hero.eric fink was one of the few seniors on this year's starting team, as a halfback, he was an intrcgal part of the hilltop backline which proved almost impregnable to opponents, his graduation will create a gap in the don defense which will be difficult to fill. the ccsf goalie blocks an attempted goal by herb weiss, as stan jonah looks on helplessly, the rams were the toughest team faced by the usf soccermcn all season and the narrow 2-0 victory margin proves it. 175fullback gcorgc tubman clean the ball out from near thc njoku and ludwig soddemann move in to take up the play.

( serge burenin ,was given all-conference honorable mention for the outstanding job he turned in at left halfback, his greatness lay in his ability to steal the ball from opponents who were driving up field and to dribble it effectively to teammates liberian born george tubman Nvas chosen as an all-conference' fullback, the selection was based on george's strong defensive play and excellent all-around performance. Whenever the ball came near the don goal, george was there to send it sailing upficld, where the usf forward wall would turn the play into a score.v tony njok)i--'has been an •((•conference halfback for two consecutive years, from his position at center halfback, tony was seen leaving defenders kicking the air as he dribbled past them toward the goal. His accurate passing set up many scores for the don forwards, on defense, it was very rare when an opponent was able to get the ball past his agile feet. tony njoku intercepts a bronco pass and drives the ball back up field to the usf forwards, the dejected stance cd duran was probably the least publicised of the usf soccermcn this season, yet his play was not outshone by some of his more illustrious teammates, the tall, fair-haired fullback contributed heavily to a don defense which was perhaps the strongest in the nation, his strong play toward the end of the season indicated he will be a candidate for conference honors next year. halfback cd duran blasts the ball away from a staggering santa clara forward late in the game, with the dons leading 12-0, ludwig soddemann and john harper converge to regain possession of the ball for the hilltoppers.herb wciss demonstrates the form which won him all-conference honors, as he drives past two city college defenders for a goal forward stan jonah was a vital member of the high-scoring don front line, his point-making ability contributed heavily to the early usf victories over California and Stanford, the presence of this two-year veteran on the squad acted as a steadying influence on the other members of this young ball club, stan, a senior, graduates this june and his loss will be felt greatly by the team next season. herb wcis was another member of the hilltop forward wall, which was considered one of the best in the history of usf. his ability to score equally well with either foot enabled him to be one of the leading scorers on the team. Herb's consistently outstanding performance on both offense and defense won him a berth on the all-eonfcrcncc eleven.sy - X, ludwig soddemann was one of the two highest scorers on this year's varsity, his dazzling footwork and expert shooting easily won him a place on the all-conference squad, ludwig's vigorous play on both offense and defense was typical of the spirit which prevailed on the 1958-1959 soccer team, unfortunately for the dons, he is an exchange student and must return to his native germany next semester. don forward herb weiss blasts the ball past a dismayed bronco defender for the first of four goals he scored in the 1 5-0 rout of santa clara.

season of intercollegiate matches. it can also be said that the don boxers laid a most solid ground work for future boxing seasons with their hard work and respectful showing. welterweight cd young

AcoAcA to «rv»o V a c» «'' •• growth of football took another giant step forward at usf this year, the product of a small scale renaissance in 1956, five years after the death of the sport on the hilltop, the grid game has grown like a healthy weed on the ignatian heights under the gardening of robert "sarge"-mackenxie. originally only an intramural setup, the progam branched out last season to include home and home engagements with the san francisco state reserves, this year, two more games were added to the state encounters: treasure island navy team and the cal aggie reserves. in addition to the outside games, the round-robin intramural league remained. in the second year since the league's beginning, the vigilante's won the conference championship, sponsored by the block sf society, the bill and mike gregor-captaincd club beat off the second place pershing rifle Caballeros and the delta sigma pi grey fog in a bitterly fought campaign. for their outside competition, the three intramural teams were combined to form one all-star aggregation, the combination split the season, beating treasure island, 18-15, and cal aggie, 14-8, but dropping two to san francisco state, 30-6 and 42-22. the treasure island tilt kicked off the season, played on the navy base in 95 degree weather, the game was close from the start, however, the fine defensive line play of the dons, led by gregor and speedy joe shea, held the pirates' offense down, the hard running of bob o'ncill and john mccaulcy, coupled with a 55 yard touchdown sprint by frosh quarterback davc chapla in the fourth quarter, pulled the game out for usf. it was the hilltop's first football win since 1951. perhaps the most exciting game of the season was played under the lights at davis. usf scored early when flanker back cd griffin took an outside reverse and outsped the aggie defenders for a 25 yard td. the dons held their 6-0 lead until the third quarter when the aggies completed several passes and took the lead 8-0. mackenxic sent chapla to the air to try to pull the game out. with two and a half minutes left to play, the don quarterback hit griffin with an "alley oop" in the end zone for the winning score.an experiment the intramural season held the attention of usf fans for several weeks, as the Caballeros took the league lead, paced by the running of senior halfback jerry finnigan and the line play of pete orth, jack ahern, john arnold, bob rocmer, and tom norton. tony dark quarterbacked the club, which led at the end of the first round. but the vigilantes and the grey fog rose up to conquer the cabs, paced by end bill cutler, the passing of me cauley, and the running of joel momsen, coupled with the line play of bill ferrero, bill defuniak, and john hcnncsscy, the vigilantes defeated the grey fog, who were led by shea, cd dcantoni, john quilici, joe napier, captain jim mcdonald, and tony smith, and went on to win the campus conference title. the intramural season took its toll in injuries, however, and the dons felt the loss of key personnel in their 30-6 defeat at state, behind 12-0 before they even ran a play from scrimmage, the dons were down 22-0 at the half, and though they held the gators even in the second half, they were to far behind to catch up. usf's lone touchdown followed long runs by finnigan and mccaulcy, and came in the fourth quarter on a pass from griffin to cutler. the second state game found the green and gold in much the same position, the gators tallied three times before usf could get out of its own territory, and it wasn't until chapla picked to griffin on a 50 yard pass play in the second quarter that the dons got on the scoreboard, the half ended 28-8. usf came out fired up to start the second half, and started throwing the pigskin around, quick passes to griffin and cutler shoved state back, and chapla fired twice to cutler for scores, usf crept up to 28-22, and it looked as if hilltop alumni and fans were in for an upset, but state intercepted a pass, finally, and two long runs by the gator's bob lualhati iced it for the lake mcrccd people, 48-22. fc- at the season's end, ed griffin and jim mcdonald were named the outstanding back and lineman respectively by coach mackcnxic. incomplete! a pan intended for Caballero end bob roetner falls incomplete during the championship game with the vigilantei. on this

"sarge" maekenxic gives final words of advice to vigilante gridders john strain and john hennessy prior to their championship game with the caballcros. coach mackcnzic, the man who conceived the entire usf intramural system and is the driving force behind it, deserves a special tribute for his self-sacrificing efforts, besides being the usf grid mentor, "sarge" is also a professor of political science, a scout for the Cleveland browns, and the father of a large family, this year, without personal gain, without the aid of assistant coaches, and often without thanks, robert mackcnxie moulded some 55 players into team, which brought the hilltop it first gridiron victories since the sport was dropped in 1951. the student body owes a great debt of gratitude to "sarge" mackenzie.finnigan on the moue ♦he league's leading ground gainer jerry finnigan of the Caballeros demonstrates the speed which enabled him to amass 242 yards rushing this season, vigilante's john hennessy 25• and russ graff 1 5 close in to try and stop the hard-charging finnigan. a vigilante bites the dust vigilante halfback bert ripple is brought to earth by caballcro ed o'rcilly and an unidentified player, tony smith '26', russ graff 15 , jack ahern '65'» tom rich '88', and mike gregor 231 arc interested onlookers. 189faces on the field jll-lcjguc caballcro halfback jerry finnigan all-league vigilante guard bill ferrero caballcro tackle pete orth kneeling: john strain, don stenson, byron smith. vigilante tackle john hennessy standing: joel momten and bert ripple. all-league grey fog guard john quilici all-league caballcro quarterback tony chrkall-league vigilante halfback john me cauley all-league caballero tackle tom norton vigilante quarterback ruts graff the situation for next year looks promising, the entrance of santa clara into the program, coupled with several games already on the schedule, should increase the number of football players who don the green and gold, these men along with a fine nucleus of returning gridders such as cutler, me caulcy, napicr, hennessy, orth, norton, ahearn, smith, momsen, and a flock of others, including 230 pound rene bourdet, who was injured in the treasure island game, should give "sarge's charges" a team, which will greatly improve on the '58 tally. all-league vigilante end bill cutler caballero guard john arnold all-league caballero end bob rocmerbaseball is the sport of spring and certain young men and their coach are, indeed, dedicated to this sport, they win their fair share of ball games and play a gruelling schedule and few fans watch their effects, and again this season the baseball nine under the gifted guidance of "dutch" anderson won more than they lost, but what is of far greater importance, they showed many that college baseball is not dead on the hilltop, and it is of endless surprise to many fans that year after year, usf turns out top flight baseball squads, and it is, indeed, a surprise to the students themselves who have their time and energies filled with the things of spring. outfield: bernie wend, cf; wait chapman.

I I 194 1958-1959 varsity basketball team — kneeling, left to right: bob norton, charlcy range, ron cox, don drinon, davc lillevand. standing, manager sal fish, cd slcvin, bernie Schneider, fred lacour, mike prcascau, jerry robinson, john Cunningham, george jcrcich, don moses, coach phil woolpert. sr itnoflgrthe tragic era "the ingredients that go to make up an athlete" arc equal parts of talent, determination, coaching, and desire." these words of pop warner are truer today than when he spoke them to jim thorpe many years ago before the indian great amazed an athletic world on the Olympic cinders, no team or individual can hope to achieve success unless possessed, in at least an equal distribution, of the four qualities mentioned above and usf's 1958-59 baskctballcrs have been a tragic example of this fact. super laden with the finest coaching in the business, chuck full of desire and determination, the dons of '59 faced the toughest basketball schedule in hilltop history minus their share of the talent, it became an interesting, exciting, but tragic year for the dons. even as clgin baylor's 35-foot jumper swished the cow palace net on march 14, 1958 to give the Seattle chieftains a 69-67 ncaa regional victory, usf proponents knew that it was not true that the don era of basketball had ended, on that evening when phil woolpert's dons suffered their first regional tournament loss, one merely had to glance at the roster of returning veterans and upcoming frosh to realize that the era was not over, only slowed down somewhat. but the truth was that the russell-jones-farmcr-brown days of hilltop basketball had become history and that a new sense of athletic glory and achievement was rising on the horizon. filing from the cow palace that rainy march evening usf fans recounted the names of john Cunningham, davc lillcvand, bob radanovich, jerry robinson, bill connolly, whose abilities on a basketball court would personify and shine beside the height of art day and scoring power of fred lacour. then there would be the strength from jv stars jim moya, don motes, gcorge jercich, leroy jones, bob norton, ed slevin and bemie schncider to go with frosh stars ron cox, dave hinds and charley range as well as jc transfer danny drinon. and to top the list would be the return of mike preaseau, a veteran of the 1956 ncaa playoffs, it didn't matter what the press said, things looked good for the dons. but fate will have its way and the era ended, first came the news that the 6-9 day was being dropped from the university for disciplinary reasons, then fabulous frcddic lacour, usf's one candidate for all-american honors was scholastically incligable until the beginning of the spring semester, after fourteen games had entered the record books, and finally, the year layoff had hurt preaseau more than had been planned and the hearty forward from redding sat out a good portion of the season with an injured pride before roaring back for a champion's finish. tho talent was gone and only bare ability with an abundance of heart and determination was left to compliment one of the most prolific demonstrations of coaching basketball fans have seen in many a day. with little effort woolpert's stalwarts opened the 1958-59 campaign dec. 1, downing chico state, 61-34 and then returned home to dedicate their new million dollar memorial gymnasium. dedication night offered a preview of things to come in basketball, scores, and officiating, before a jam packed house of 6,000 tho dons outhustlcd, outplayed, and outgunned the chieftains of Seattle to revenge the bayor-led murder of the year before, but fell victims to the same fate, 60-58. This time the back breaking two points came from the fingertips of francis saunders, clgin baylor's cousin, with three seconds remaining, the dons had literally dominated the scene until the closing minutes and the tears that flowed were justified as they were a few days later when woolpert's young men took it on the chin from texas Christian, 58-56 and kansas state, 53-52. After the Seattle contest usf moved across the bay to give California golden bear mentor pete newell his first win over a phil woolpert coached five, 50-43. it was a bad night for the locals who just couldn't match the bears' height or shooting consistency. a few nights later the green and gold tasted victory for the first time since the season opener at chico by nosing out wichita, 47-46. once more preaseau sparked things while robinson and hinds, subbing for the injured Cunningham pulled down the rebounds, lillevand camo alive as did ron cox, who shown so brilliantly against Seattle, and the dons had a balanced performance for a win. then started a five-game losing streak that didn't end until january 3, when the locals had to fight all the way to turn away their cross-town rivals, san francisco state, 73-63. first it was Stanford in memorial gym, 53-45, in a miserable usf showing, then three in the all-college tournament at Oklahoma city, the host team did the trick, 72-64, followed by Oregon, 64-53, and wichita took revenge, 86-68. from the tourney where the dons had been champs the year previous they traveled to st. louis where former usf hoop ace john bonnington's club had no mercy with his old school, 6°-42. the west coast athletic conference opened at san jose with a big bang—right in the dons' faces, santa clara, behind frank sobrero and mel prescott, handed the green and golders a 60-54 dumping in spite of an excellent scoring performance by the sophomore charley range, the next night the dons took anothor win. this time the victim was hapless san jose state, 51-46, but the wcac pride was short lived, for four weeks later the same spartans, the weak sisters of the league presented the dons a 48-45 upset loss. with the san jose win fred lacour returned to the lineup but the damage was done, many expected fantastic things from freddie and he gave it to them in one of the finest performances of a usf baskctballer. running up the highest scoring percentage since bill russell, fred scored on 77 of 195 field goals for 39.5 and hitting the mark on 51 of 59 free throw attempts, the 6-4 junior recorded 205 points for a 17.1 average in only 12 games, his scoring was second only to cunning-hans' 13.3, 3.32 point season, fred's play was brilliant, however, he joined a club that had suffered too many close setbacks and had not improved with the season, all the desire was there but a bit of the determination seeped away with the 2 and 3 point losses, memorial gym was nick-named "heartbreak alley" and the name stuck for the remainder of the season. fred joined the club in time to travel to Seattle for another chieftain win, this time, 80-62 and a 71-58 loss to Utah at salt lake, back in "heartbreak alley" the dons went into overtime behind a 24 point performance by freddie and a shining rebounding gamo by Cunningham before being edged by the wcac champs, the st. mary's gaols, jim weaver's moragans were in sheer panic most of the way but shook it off to outclass the green and gold with just too much talent, two weeks later on feb. 17, with the home court advantage, the gaels proved just how tough they were and ran away with a 91-53 victory. after the first st. mary's game the dons headed for Stockton and the cop tigers gave the visitors little respect and another loss—57-43. in the return match radanovich, lacour, Cunningham, cox, lillevand and company were never in trouble while they dumped the college of pacific, 68-60. pepperdinc, traditionally an easy usf pushover, was just the opposite in '59 as they drubbed the dons, 62-53 and 83-63. in the first encounter lacour established a gymnasium record for memorial hoopsters to shoot for by netting 30 points, loyola offered the dons formidable opposition in los angcles and took a 60-53 decision but finished second best in san francisco. it was a 63-59 victory for the dons over loyola's lions that ended a seven-game losing streak that had begun with the second Seattle loss. the final contest of the season was the heartbreaker to end all. a win over santa clara in the finale, march 4, would have meant some sort of icing for a poorly baked cake, but the broncos and the officials were not to be denied, trailing all the way until the final three minutes, the broncs hit on every free throw they were given (and they were given plenty) to win it going away, 70-64. no, the season didn't end as was expected, usf finished with six wins and twenty losses, phil woolpert and usf had gone through the worst season in their basketball histories, but the hilltop had witnessed a fight against unsurmountablc odds, the talent was scarce and the guts plentiful, they fought all the way and earned every bit of praise that could be offered.a little too late, don forward bob dadanovich goes high trying to block a shot by Seattle's "sweet'' charlic brown, however, the smooth performing brown managed to score and led his chieftain teammates to a thrilling 60-58 win. something to cheer about, led by fred la cour, who is pictured above scoring 2 of his 24 points, the dons came within a single tally, 64-63, of upsetting the champion st. mary's gacls. 196 no you don't! little davc lillevand, sparkplug of the dons all season, scrambles after a loose ball with giant gacl tom mcschcry; rugged davc got it.first win. davc hinds, substituting for injured john Cunningham, pushes up a shot over a husky wichita defender dave lillcvand and bob dadanovich took on. the hilltoppers finally managed to win one in their own gym, beating the wheat-shockers, 47-46. Cunningham vs. mcschery. in a titanic struggle for control of the backboards, john Cunningham battled with the gad's mcschery all evening, at the end of the contest Cunningham was the winner, capturing 20 rebounds to meschery's 18. the story of the season, a taller Seattle player has just taken a rebound despite the heroics of hilltop forward mike prea-seau. in almost every game this year, the dons were faced with a great height disadvantage which pure courage and determination could not overcome.the end. the look of frustration and disappointment is written on the faces of john Cunningham (10), charlcy range (32), and fred lacour (21), as they watch davc lillc-vand struggling vainly with gaol dick sigaty to gain posssession of the ball, this action took place in the closing seconds of the game with st. mary's leading by a single point. the players and fans departed; the season completed; the gym stands dark and silent, a lonely janitor pushes his mop before him, sweeping up the remnants of the shattered dreams of victory.varsity, left to right: al pcgucros wilils casey, rich flocchini, cd pryal, john krebscr leapt.), john clmcr. the most exclusive club on campus had another successful season this year, the usf rifle club, a very exclusive organization, is composed of a few select individuals who arc interested in target shooting, they compete on the collegiate level, meeting such teams as California, Stanford, and santa clara. the squad is also entered in the city league competition, the varsity fires in the "b" section and the freshmen in the "c" section. in past years usf has had one of the top rifle teams in the country, in fact it placed third in collegiate competition in the nation last year, like the basketball team the rifle squad fell upon hard times this year and while still successful, it has not attained provious high standards. this year's squad is led by president and captain john krcslcr. other members of the squad include tim brophy, willis casey, richard flocchini, al pegueros and cd pryal. john clmer, a part time student, won all-american honors for the dons. team number 2 — front row, left to right: frank fochr, jim babich, cliff hughes, dermis baskin, paul ross. back row: ernie schoene, daryl cano, joc carson, philip imos, dennis green, lou prusinouski, jack vidosh.terry gleason hjrold villavcccs don Hcngchold larry brownc tony njoky 200 bob vcrzcllo george rowanmilestones: 1912—saint ignatius college, which is now located at hayes and shrader, opens its doors to the first evening division students, this small, select group consists of junior college graduates attending law school. 1924—the evening division expands, and students can now earn a bachelor's degree in commercial science. 1930—saint ignatius college becomes the university of san francisco, at the request of the city of san francisco, in this, the diamond anniversary of the institution. 1941-5—world war ii depletes the evening division, except for government sponsored programs. 1946—returning veterans swell the ranks, and enrollment reaches an unheard of 400.

At the same time they have maintained their place in the working world family. they have chosen the better thing, their higher education; and even though the cost to themselves has been high, they have followed their course with wonderful motivation and determination. the university of san francisco is proud to number this "group" of evening division students among its graduates as it knows quite well that they have received a well-rounded education and deeply appreciate the degree they have worked so hard to gain, it knows also that they will in the future be very loyal sons and daughters of this university and champions of the catholic education they have received. sincerely, fr. gcrald sugrue, s.j. directorw. e.
