The i ast decade has been a decade of progress for the University and the student body. While practically doubling its attendance and facilities, the University has achieved an academic advance unixtralleled in the Bay Area. Undoubtedly, numerous factors, economic and otherwise, might be enumerated to account for this phenomenon. Yet. all in all, after all has been said, the advance of an institution is not self-generative: IT MUST NECESSARILY BEGIN WITH MEN. In this, USE has been fortunate. This institution calls forth great men — men of commitment who have placed the interests of the University above their own: men whose dedication and perseverance have made possible what the city and the student body too often take for granted. To these men, the University shall ever be grateful. REVEREND EDMOND J. SMYTH, S.J. Few men at this University are more respected than Fr. Smyth, S.J., Dean of the Colleges of Arts and Science. Fr. Smyth was bom in San Francisco on May 21st, 1919. He received his A.B. degree from Gonzaga University in 1942 and his M.A. from the same institution in 1943. From 1943 to 1947, he attended the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies. In 1951 he received his S.T.L. from Alma College and in 1953 his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. In the Fall of 1955, Fr. Smyth was appointed to his present position. Since that lime, he has been the personal counsel and guide of unknown hundreds of students. He is an educator of the Eastern Tradition. His sentences are measured, his manner is reserved, and his thought is precise. His overall bearing and appearance is that of a scholar. Fr. Smyth’s deep interest in the individual, reflected in the long and sometimes tedious hours spent in his office discussing with, talking to, admonishing, and encouraging the undergraduate, manifests an attitude of sincere humanism. He is an administrator who has not forgotten, who will not let himself forget, that the student is the foundation of the University.Reverend Edmond J. Smyth. S.J. seated in his office in Campion Hall. 7REVEREND FRANCIS J. CALLAHAN, S.J. Fr. Callahan. S.J.. vice president in charge of development, is a modest man with a deep personal dynamism. Perhaps he might best be described as a man who calls a spade a spade. He is straightforward and unpretentious in his manner. Born in San Francisco on April 29th, 1913, Father Callahan attended St. Ignatius High School before receiving his A.B. and M.A. from Gonzaga University. Subsequently, he was awarded degrees from Alma College, Catholic University, and the Pontifical Gregorian University. After teaching at Santa Clara University and Alma College, Father Callahan joined the USF faculty in 1952 as Law School chaplain and assistant professor of jurisprudence and canon law. Two years later he was appointed associate director of development, and in 1956 he was appointed director of development and alumni moderator for the University. Perhaps the growth of the University during these past five years speaks best for the accomplishments of this man: the USF Memorial Gym, the new wing of Phelan Hall, the Kendrick law school building, and the projected science center. In all of this, Father Callahan has remained in the background, working hard and asking little. No doubt he shall continue to do so. He is truly one of the men ‘‘behind the scenes.”Reverend Francis J. Callahan, SJ. considers the state of the school's financial needs.REVEREND JOHN F. X CONNOLLY. SJ. Father John Connolly, President of the University of San Francisco, is a mature man of penetrating insight. This man alone bears the ultimate responsibility for the University. This, in itself. would be enough; yet more than this, he is the representative and spokesman of this institution to the city and to the state. Father Connolly succeeded Father William Dunne as President of the University on Monday. August 16th, 4954. He was the youngest president the University had ever had. being just 39 years of age. Prior to his appointment as President. Father Connolly was Rector of the Jesuit Novitiate at Los Gatos for five years. He attended St. Anne's Grammar School and St. Ignatius High, graduating from the latter in 1933. He entered the Jesuit order that same year and was ordained in San Francisco in 1946. Father Connolly has distinguished himself as an able administrator, integrating and relating the various departments of the University into a well-functioning, organic whole. His administrative reign has been marked by the most remarkable success, both in terms of material development and academic advance. Such progress can only be the result of a thorough knowledge and understanding coupled with appropriate action. Father Connolly has given direction to the present, he has strengthened the past, and he has secured a place in the future for this University. To this man, the students are humbly grateful.Reverend John F. X. Connolly.

The ideals of the French Revolution were neither forgotten by the nationalists nor forgiven by the imperialists. It was a time of revolution. The whole of the year of 1818 had been given over to political upheaval. The university students, the political radical, even some of the more liberal nobles, had risen against the autocracy of the kings. Politically, the revolutions were a failure; but even their very failure could only etch more sharply in the mind the fact that old ways and old peoples would either have to answer the question of the young, or be themselves destroyed. All of the arts were involved in this time of revolution: yet their revolution was only in part of a political nature. The great movement in vogue, romanticism, was an intensely personal form which treated solely of the individual and his communication with reality. The freedom of the individual was the very basis of the romantic credo which led the artist to create works of art solely to express himself, and not merely to conform to a particular. The fashionable painters of this time, the habitues of the Salon and the Royal Academy, found themselves being challenged by such radicals as Turner. Manet. The latter dared to show that all in the world was not pretty and moral. So even while the Messoniers and Bourgereaus painted their pleasant, socially-accepted pictures of so-cially-acceptabic scenes, there was a rising tide of young painters who dared to taint what they saw, not merely what they were expected to see. Romanticism was even stronger in music. Liszt. Wagner, Berlioz, and the intensely patriotic Chopin, created floods of untrammeled, deeply personal sound, which made the listener sharply aware of his emotions. The intense Polish essence of Chopin’s music made him a rallying-center not only for lovers of Poland, but for all devotees of freedom. It was commonly recognized that the Wagner operas were teeming with revolutionary sentiments, and that their creator himself was a dangerous political radical. 1415Literature was an even stronger social force. The Victorian novels, behind their facade of seemingly tacit confirmation of Her Majesty’s benevolent rule, were powerful documents of social criticism and judgment. With the French novelists — Balzac, Hugo, Stendhal — the novel was a great weapon for a stinging denunciation of corrupt society. Poetry of the romantic age. as far back as Shelley, was a continuous cry for freedom. Then, too, poets such as Foe and Baudelaire were telling society of emotions of which it preferred to pretend ignorance. Religion was torn by modernism, rationalism. Its only answer to all of these objections seemed to be a reaffirmation of conservatism and reaction, which answers failed to crush the ever-mounting tide of question and doubt. Hegel. Marx, and soon Darwin, in their analysis of man in all of his ramifications, bewildered the European by their deft and complete revision of early notions, of everything which in former times had been accepted as correct. This was the age of revolution in Europe. Man was not content to purchase bread at the price of freedom. It was an age of questions which demanded answers, of answers whose application frightened the mind. On the other side of the world lay America, still swathed in the comfortable provinciality which was as yet untroubled by great revolutions. In New England, the country’s only intellectual area, there were great minds who were aware of the revolutions in Europe. Emerson, Thoreau, Alcott all knew of German transcendentalism, and were heavily influenced by it. The curious Utopian experiment at Brooke Farm saw the New England intellectuals milking cows in the morning and reading Aristotle at night. And then there was the unique genius of Thoreau: at Walden Pond he pondered on the individual and his relation to society. But, save for these intellectual islands, the rest of America cared little for Europe and its new ideas of revolution. Vet America itself was in the throes of great movement. The discovery of gold in California forced that long-dormant region into a lusty and bustling life. Its past Spanish glory was only a dim memory. The missions of the Franciscans and the Jesuits, the glamorous California of the Spanish haciendas, had disappeared with the political dissolution from Spain. The secularization of many of the. missions had precipitated the state into a soporific coma from which only the coming of the lively Americans could raise it. But in 1855, life had roared back into California. Life was disordered, in great part purposeless, and had only the most flimsy of motives: but it was nevertheless life. The hunger for gold was only the cause by which California began to grow. For the few who found it, their search was a cause for rejoicing; for the many who failed, it was imperative, for the sake of survival, to chart a new life in a new land. Of the needs faced by these people, education was one of the most pressing. And it is in this that the Jesuits and the embryonic University of San Francisco enter history. 16the city of San Francisco 105 years after the founding of St. Ignatius College.The entry of the Jesuits into San Francisco in 1855 was most unspectacular. They arrived by cattle-boat, and came to a city in which priests were so rare as to be an object of curiosity. The Jesuit missions of southern California had long ago settled into decay; the work was new, and had no roots on which to draw save those of oast greatness and determination. The Jesuits had come to San Francisco to serve as priests, of which there were too few. They probably had no definite ideas of starting a school, but were content to do whatever work the archbishop offered them. When they did suggest starting a school, they were offered a realm of sand dunes as their site. Their first school. Saint Ignatius College, was a one-room building. Its beginning was most primitive, but it grew until it is today the University of San Francisco, the only such institution in this city. The university has always taken pride in its uniqueness; but, it may be asked, is there any real reason for this pride, or is it only unwarranted chauvinism? Is the University of San Francisco a unique institution in this city, or is it just another school which happens to be Catholic and Jesuit? All institutions of education work with facts and iniormation meir raw materials; their differences as schools lie in the manner and methods by which they interpret and affix these facts to the world outside the school walls. The uniqueness of the University of San Francisco, therefore, lies in the fact that it is a Catholic university, because its interpretation and explanation of facts are base l on Catholic philosophy. The secular institution is content to influence its student towards becoming something called a humanist. At best, the humanist learns to organize his information into a philosophy of service, and thus to heln himself and others. At worst, he is free to shape and understand facts in any manner which pleases him, and then to transfer this twisted image onto those with whom he has contact. But the Catholic school is radically different. It does not allow the student to use information to suit his fancy; it does not merely make him a “useful member of society." It teaches him, honestly and without pretense, the Christian interpretation of reality, because it knows that its interpretation is correct. The University ot San Francisco is in existence as a Christian institution, only because God; in the person of Jesus Christ, revealed the truth bv which man can obtain the goal for which he exists. The Catholic theory of education, and its Jesuit practitioners, exist only to further the work of Christ. It is this divinity of purpose which gives the University of Sail Francisco its real uniqueness. 18 St. Ignatius Church. an image of the past and a vision of the future. 19Divinity of purpose may seem distant and even obscure in the maze of ordinary courses and classes: for he Christian religion is not a philopher’s stone which turns all dross to gold: it is rather a magnet which gives all a sense of direction and purpose. USF does not offer its Christo-centric curriculum as a panacea, a cure-all, or an answer to every question; it offers it because, if properly used, it can give the best hints and suggestions as to the direction in which truth lies. However, proof for this must not be sought by examining the percentage of truth found in this school, or in its degree of applicability. Truth, which is the main business of the school, is an experience; it can be eased and enlightened by the sensible accumulation and interpretation of facts; but it can be achieved only through experience and life. This, in theory, is the unique feature of the university; in practice, however, it is often clouded-over. The teacher who is merely competent; the student who wants only the easiest teachers; the courses which are “watered-down;” the apathy and disinterest — all of these combine to pollute the purity and stagnate the school, too often seem to make USF just another school whose only distinction is the fact that its teachers are Christian. It would be wrong to pretend that the mere fact that USF is a Catholic university means that it is right in all cases, that all of its teachers and all of its subjects are the best of all possible teachers and subjects in the best of all possible schools; it would be wrong to apologize for its failings and backings by cloaking them under the guise of religion; it would be wrong to take the one word, “catholic,” and use it to solve each and every problem. But, nevertheless, in spite of the human element, in spite of human failings, in spite of the great problem of financing the school, it must be always remembered that, in San Francisco, USF has a special uniqueness. Its uniqueness is not extrinsic, but is rather the prime matter which determines the special form which the school takes. 20Glecson Library on a Sunday morning — the mark of progress. 21The complaint is often heard, that a school year book is of no interest to anyone not directly connected with school. This is too often true; indifferent photographs of students and student events are placed between hard covers, and the result is called a “year book.” Another extreme equally as fruitless is the yearbook which attempts to make its every sentence an oracle, and sets itself up as a censor and monitor of society. A synthesis must be reached, if the yearbook is to be a functional success: it must combine the virtues of the two extremes and omit their vices. The Don has attempted, with this present copy, to be both a source of happy memories and a gad-fly for a few thoughts. Its staff has presented USF as it was, and is, and will be. They have interpreted events as they have understood them, and strove to amuse as well as to entertain. They were not so serious as to be unable to criticize their work, but were not so flippant as to see their work as a joke. If they have succeeded they have shown the reader of USF that which Keats calls “a shadow of a magnitude.” 22the post merges into the present as the present merges into the future. 23The Jesuit Fathers of St. Ignatius College had reason to be grateful on the morning of April IB, 1906. Just as first light was beginning to break on that beautiful Spring day, an earthquake had struck the city. The downtown section of the city, away to the east was burning. The college was thankful. Earthquake damage to the buildings on the campus along Van Ness Avenue was not serious, and no one thought the fire could cross Van Ness Avenue, the widest street in the city. Hut St. Ignatius College was marked for destruction nonetheless. A housewife living near the college decided to cook breakfast for her family, kindled a fire in the stove's trash burner and set the house afire because the chimney had been damaged by the earthquake. And then the house next door broke into flames and then the whole block. The wind carried the burning embers, and the wooden towers of St. Ignatius Church began to smoulder. Then the church itself burned, followed by the college, until thc(e was nothing left but bare sandstone walls and twisted steel beams. There was nothing anyone could do but carry out what you could and watch the fire destroy everything it had taken Years to build. 24(hr sleepy Mexican village of Yerba Buena, almost overnight, had been turned into the boomtaten of San Francisco. Teeming with hungry goldscckcrs, this city, in 1885. was to receive a man who brought gold—gold more precious than any from Sutter's Creek History is an old man with tired eyes who smokes his pipe quietly, alternately smiling and frowning, witnessing the ebb and flow of fortune. His age is mountain-old. His hand is like the sea, all-embracing, trembling with its might. He is the master of a grand order for his kingdom is mankind. He stretches through the day and through the night, penetrating all corners, observing all deeds. He is a good friend whose intent is to give substance, understanding and purpose. He makes the obscure real, the forgotten remembered. He needs only to be discerned, he needs only to be questioned. Once revived his words are not soon forgotten. TRADITIONS AND LEGENDS On Wednesday, November 1, 1854, early in the San Francisco morning, a young Jesuit priest and his two companions strolled down the gangplank of the S.S. Sonora. The young priest and his two associates had been accompanied on their voyage by a hand of hungry gold seekers. California was in the midst of a social upheaval, hundreds of thousands of homesteaders, financiers, and opportunists had settled its shores since the first cry of gold some seven years before. In these times, there was no room for the fragile or afraid. 'fhe young priest who had stepped from the ship Sonora was to someday become the founder of the largest Catholic men’s school west of Chicago. His name was Father Antonio Maraschi, S.J. San Francisco was at the crossroads of the many meeting paths to and from the gold country. The city of Antonio Maraschi was a bedlam. A contemporary of the young priest wrote of San Francisco.” . . . whether it should be called a mad house or Babylon. am at a loss to determine—so great in those days was the disorder, the brawling, the open immorality . . .” Fr. Maraschi had a difficult task before him. "Where? Out there . . .” Some six months passed liefore the young Jesuit at last received the permission of Archbishop Alemany to begin his college “somewhere out there.” The “somewhere out there” was in the sanddunes, desolate, deserted, and plagued by occasional floods. Undaunted, P’r. Maraschi borrowed some money, bought some land and built three buildings. School opened on Monday, October 15, 1855. Three students braved the lonely desert surrounding the school, the first of which was Master Richard McCabe. He was the first of the long line of Irish Immigrants to receive a classical education from the Italian Jesuits. An Object of Curiosity A Brother Weyringer, who arrived in January of the following year to help with the chores, writes of the early St. Ignatius, “We lived in a hole surrounded by sand hills . . . a Jesuit in cap and cassock teas a rare object of curiosity to the children of those days in San Francisco; and perched on the hilltop, they surveyed the scene below, making Father Maraschi the brunt of many remarks” Brother Weyringer was full of antics and fun. Of one of his early adventures he says “One day. in rambling over the hills of St. Anne's Valley, I came upon a pretty plant whose speciesjvas unknown to me. It was of a glossy green and seemed by nature a climber. ‘How much it will add to the beauty of the church,' I thought, ‘if 1 train it along the wall and arch it over doors and windows.' Carefully, then, not to injure its tender roots, I dug it out of the soft sand, and bore it home in all the pride of original discovery. planted it by the sacristy door, I knew that Fr. 25Maraschi would see it. I knew, at least. thought I knew that he would comment on my diligence. I waited for his approbation. Waited? Well. yes, I am still waiting for that. He saw the plant? Well, not exactly for such as the present object of my care, for that plant of the glossy leaves was the common poison oak. and it was soon at safe distance withering in the sun. Appearances, even in California, are at times deceitful.” During this first year of its existence, St. Ignatius Academy acquired its first lay teacher, another Irish immigrant, one John Haley. He slept in the classroom that year —evidently, quite comfortable and secure. He was USF’s first boarder. Some S200.00 were paid to him for his year’s work. No other record exists of John from that time on, but legend is that he went back to Ireland. The Steam Engine In 1857, one Thomas Hayes acquired an option to build a steam engine line along the present length of Market Street, passing right in front of St. Ignatius Academy. He was a grand capitalist, an all-American baron. He dug deep moats along his railway tracks to protect them from the hard knocks of traveling wagons. After some rain, his ditches came to be filled with water. The water became stagnant, mosquitoes bred, two passengers drowned, but, above all protests, the railway charged on. Perhaps this was but one of the many factors that slowed S.I.’s first years of growth. In 1861, Market Street was paved: the once lonely little outpost of Jesuit education was now in contact with the big city. Enrollment doubled and tripled many times over. The noble forerunner of USF now had an enrollment of some 140 students and a staff of some 12 professors. Ding-Dong Inspired by this rabbit-like growth, Fr. Maraschi and Fr. Villiger went bell-hunting. After all, they needed something to call the students to school. Providence smiled upon them. A bell, originally cast for the San Francisco Fire Department by a company in Sheffield, England was left unpurchased by the city because it had no mone '. Actually, neither did Fathers Maraschi or Villiger. Hut it was such a good bargain — only 1,300 dollars. A few weeks later the bell was hung in the tower of the church of USF’s first campus. The largest steel bell ever cast in England was the property of the sanddune college. The firebell is still with the USF of today, hanging in the campanile of Saint Ignatius Church. That same year, in response to the demands placed upon the college, S.I. commenced its first building program: a new church was built, the largest in the State, with a capacity of some 3,000 persons. Another “class room” was built, this time three stories high —with windows and corridors, and all the modern conveniences. This was termed S.I.'s second campus, since these buildings were constructed on some newly acquired property bordering on Jessie Street. The old buildings were converted to storage rooms. S.I. made some amazing contributions to the city during these early years. Even without government aid. the college Edison, Father Joseph Nery, managed to successfully design and demonstrate an incandescent lamp. Under his guidance, the college obtained the largest electric generator in the United States. Yet although to the casual observer the S.I. of the 1860’s and the 1870's had reached an apex of development, an insidious tyrant was all the while undermining the foundations of this proud institution. Property tax had been invented. The old S.I. property, was, by this time, quite valuable; in fact taxes on the old campus alone were in excess of 12,000 dollars a year. USF' had to be moved to be saved. The administration acquired some property on Van Ness and Hayes Streets. The lo- thc campus at Hayes and Van Ness, one of the glittering lights of pre-fire San Francisco, here the University reached its peak: scientific laboratories, a gymnasium and suimming pool, a campus integral with the city of San Francisco—a product of fifty years of devoted labor and sacrifice. 26the earthquake anti fire of 1906 left hut an em ity shell where nre stood the most modern und well equipped toilette in the H est. the buildings u ere totally uninsured. cation appeared excellent and the tax was cheap. So the decision was made: to pack up and move again. This, however, was not without difficulty. San Francisco was in the throws of a recession (Eisenhower-type), thousands of men were idle, violence and even some panic threatened. The Coolie Question During this tranquil time , Fr. Maraschi asked for bids from the City’s contractors to build the new St. Ignatius Church. A rumor escaped that a Chinese company had hid the lowest: tempers flared, unions protested, collections dwindled. In those days following the reconstruction of the South, San Francisco was the little rock of the West. On July third, the San Francisco Examiner published a crusading-type editorial entitled, “A Question for Those Concerned.” The noble prose of this dissertation read, “. . . the lowest bidder was the Chinese company . . . The Chinese company employs only coolies as a matter of course." With a flare of indignant righteousness, the editorial ended, “The contract ought not to he given to the Chinese company nor to any company that employs coolies to make bricks. It ought to be given to the company that employs white men." Even then, the examiner was obviously a Hearst paper, maintaining an unusually high degree of journalistic endeavor coupled with the sterling logic of an Aristotle. All would have been peachy for the Examiner if their source had been correct, but unfortunately, their source was not correct. So Father Varsi, administrator extraordinary, kindly explained to the paper their mistaken notion. Father Kiordan, author of the S.I. history, notes the conclusion of this little episode as follows, "The Examiner threw the blame of misinformation on the Call. ." In spite of the newspapers, the new campus was dedicated in February of 1880 and with this commenced the golden era of Saint Ignatius. The college of this era offered only the AH degree. An oral examination in each of the languages of Latin and Greek was required of each graduating student. The classical emphasis of the College was augmented by such elective courses as mineralogy, astronomy and navigation. A Jesuit Boys’ Club was founded: undoubtedly it was one of the first such organizations of its sort in the United States. According to Father Kiordan, the club was better "than spending a night on Market Street among low companions and low amusements." The girls were well cared for too. The forerunner of the School of Nursing made its dehut in the I880 s with a girls’ Sunday school under the direction of Father Kenna. At the height of its development, over 700 girls were instructed each Sunday by a stall' of professional lay teachers. A G tn and a Half The million dollar school campus was lauded in every quarter as a magnificent edifice. The San Francisco Call of February 15, 1880, said of the campus auditorium. "A more commodious and attractive hall is not to be found in the city. Both ear and eye are gratified — the eye with a delicate display of light and shade upon the pure and subdued white of the walls; the ear with the perfection with which every vibration of even the most delicate sound is distinctly heard" Mr. Clarence Eddy, then one of America’s outstanding concert organists said the Saint Ignatius Church organ was the "finest and best 27in the world” The S.I. Van Ness gymnasium was a prime example of the foresight and understanding of the early Jesuits. Fr. Riordan writes of the building, “From the right of the vestibule, a stairway descends to the locker-room, bowling alley. billiard-room, reading room. and plunge ... A physician's office adjoins the main entrance. it being intended that the students submit to examinations at the beginning and during their course, that the work of physical culture may be gone at wisely, and no part that is structurally weak be exposed to undue strain . . . In the West end is the bicycle room.” The graduations of the days of yore rivaled the decor of Queen Victoria. A newspaper of the day described the graduation banquet as a delightful affair, there was music by a stringed orchestra throughout the evening. The formal program opened with a toast to Pope Pius X, the company standing while the toast was drunk. In the same manner, there was a toast to the President of the United States” The Third Campus of Old S. I. with its classical academic program, its outstanding facilities, its rich traditions, marked the high point of the development of the L'.S.F. to be. April 18, 1906. Father Vincent Testa was celebrating an early Mass at 5:15. The earthquake dislodged the candlesticks on the altar. Father was struck on the nose by a falling candle: fortunately, he was not seriously hurt. At 6:15 the Jesuit fathers celebrated public Mass for an overflowing crowd of people who were anxious to receive the sacraments; indeed, every time a priest stepped into the street, he was instantly beseiged by persons eager to receive absolution. Although the college did sustain earthquake damage, the destruction was not so serious as to be irrepairable. However, what the earthquake spared, the fire destroyed. The holocaust is attributed to a housewife who was cooking ham and eggs for her family. The fire spread to some unused outhouses on the school lot west of the church. The west tower of the church caught fire, was extinguished and later took fire again. This time the fire could not be reached. There was no water available, and the whole church was gutted. Father Minister was able to save only a few insurance policies, coins, and jewels, which lie carried in his pillow case.

The college was one of the three institutions in America—the other two were Harvard and Yale—which had been presented with an ounce of the newly discovered radium. The reason for the choice of a college for so great a gift is manifest when one recalls that St. Ignatius College had the finest assaying and surveying equipment on the West Coast, provided electric lights for Market Street, had the only telegraph equipment in San Francisco, and, in 1885, had been commended by the Smithsonian Institute for the excellence of its scientific collection. ihr L'SF swimming toot fin 1905. that held over 100.000 gallons . . . teas open student body.the I sh gym in J905 WQS most modrrri in the Ktst- the Kyra had facilities for boxing, tramftolinc, ueightlifting, wrestling and handball, the fenced-in area (upper section of the picture) is an indoor race track, all of this u-as in line with the Jesuit ideal of developing the whole man, mind and body. The brother who was entrusted with the keeping of the radium managed to save the entire mineralogical collection during the earthquake; however, he lailcd to rescue the radium. A week later he was run down by a bicycle. The Senior of 1909. a forerunner of the Don reads: "After the fire, the class uas scattered to all parts of the State; many were burned out. and had to seek refuge in one or another of the camps that were formed in various parts of the city; but each and every one was full of hope, and anxious for the time when all should assemble at Neu St. Ignatius College which was shortly in process of construction at Hayes and Shrader Streets.” On July 1, 1906, the Jesuits broke ground for the new (and fourth) St. Ignatius College. The buildings were meant only as temporary structures; it was obvious that much time would be required to restore the baroque splendor of the past St. Ignatius College. It was this element of time which caused the Jesuit fathers to decline the generous offer of the Sisters of Mercy, who wished to present them the site of the present St. Mary's Hospital for two rent-free years. The new school, located at Hayes and Shrader, opened on September 1st. This institution, christened “The Shirt Factory” by its students, was in use until 1927. Although its appearance was laconic and unimpressive, its achievements were a brilliant continuation of the goals of the ratio studiorum. Among its achievements we find: 1911, the first lineal ancestor of the Don; 1912, St. Ignatius Law School; 1919, debate victory over Stanford; 1923, a Passion Play presented in cooperation with Santa Clara; 1925, the “Pageant of Youth,” presented in the civic auditorium. Work on the present Hilltop lwgan as early as 1906, when the Fathers requested permission to move to the present site. It was purchased in 1910, in which year ground for the church was broken: the cornerstone was laid two years later. Campion Hall was dedicated in 1927, and the fifth and final St. Ignatius College was begun. 1930 saw the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of St. Ignatius College. October 12-19 was proclaimed “Diamond Jubilee Week.” Cardinal Hayes of New York preached at the open air jubilee Mass. There was much about which to rejoice; enrollment, for instance, had leaped in a few years from 40 to 500. The Passing of The Grey Fog It was during this period that the name "Dons'' was first used. Up to this time, the school had been called “The Grey Fog.'' The Junior Chamber of Commerce objected to this name (it had been in use for only two years) as being detrimental to the glorious reputation of this fair city. In its brilliant refutation of this provincialism, the Foghorn wrote: "A thundering horde can be cornered: a red horde can be outwitted and overcome; a fighting Irishman 29can be beaten into submission; a bronco can be roped. But the grey fog is unconquerable. It is supreme, defying every contrivance of man to vanquish it and place it under his control.” It suggested to the opposing worthies, 7 the Junior Chamber oj Commerce is so set against the fog, they should station their members out at Land's End some afternoon and try to stop it from rolling in.” When it was derided to change the name, a panel of nine pondered over some 150 suggestions. The winning name, Dons, was proposed by Jack Rhode, sports editor of the Foghorn. The handbooks of the time give ample examples of the pitch at which school spirit tuned. There were the old songs, “Green and Gold;” “All for You;” “Hike. Fog! “Hally Song;” “Fight for Old S. I.;” and a score of yells. The freshmen rules included such dicta as, “Freshmen may not smoke in the cafeteria;” “Freshmen must be present at all rallies and games;” and “Freshmen must at all times be courteous and allow upper classmen to precede them.” All of this school spirit was crystallized in 1928, with the formal establishment of student self-government. This era also saw the change of “St. Ignatius University” to “University of San Francisco.” This was not without its incidents. It was suggested that this change was accomplished purely to obtain further gifts and monies; that a “sectarian” school would use the name of the city. Nevertheless, the change was accomplished. At a later date, the Foghorn indignantly urged that, if the name must be abbreviated, it be shortened to USF, and not to “Frisco U.” Expansion continued with the purchase, in 1934, of the remaining property which now constitutes the campus of USF. This was a lengthy and complex work, and, at one point, involved a United States Circuit Court. The ground on which the campus is situated was formerly a Masonic cemetery, which housed 14,000 bodies. Although the cemetery was no longer used after 1903, and the trustees were willing to sell it, the families of the deceased objected to parting with such hallowed ground. The place was described as a “menace to health, a wilderness frequented by vagabonds, and a barrier to fire apparatus.” The university buildings had been built up to the property line, and it is this fact which explains the unusual shape of the liberal arts building, and the littleness of Little Theater. The case was finally brought to court in 1930. the Jesuits won, and the property was purchased in 1934. This must have been a great relief to the students, who every few weeks were gathered after noon class to clean up the cemetery, for which service they received donated refreshments. The notable features of the interim before the war years were the publication, in 1937, of the first issue of the biology department’s scholarily journal, “The Wassmann Collector.” and the publication, in 1940, of the USF Credo. Authored by Fr. Raymond Feelev. S.J., it received national attention and commendation.

Because of the war emergency, the two-semester year was lengthened into three semesters, and summer school was added to the students’ academic calendar. January of 1943 was the first wartime accelerated graduation. School was on a day to day basis, and the Foghorn observed that "Students were in school one day and in the service the next. Enrollment dropped to 133 students in the day division, 94 in the evening, and 56 in the law school. The Cannon Episode A humorous anecdote is provided by the famous incident of the cannon. As part of a military display, a cannon was placed in front of St. Ignatius Church by the school KOTC. A certain religious group was frightened by this seeming manifestation of “popish tyranny,” and published the word that the Jesuits were about to descend on the city and capture it. The end of the war saw enrollment rise to the unprecedented figure of 2,500 students. This plethora demanded more classroom space. In 1946, USF received from the federal government 12 additional classrooms. These classrooms are the famous and beloved “Hacienda Area.” The Foghorns headline in 1948, “Tradition Shattered; Girls Flutter Halls. ' announced the advent of the 48 ladies, the first student nurses to grace this campus. During the following year, the USF Dons had the singular honor of being selected to play at the National Invitational Tournament in Madison Square Garden; they won the trophy and came back to the glory of car parades, encomiums and festivity. A somber note was struck by the death of Mr. James Gill, who for twenty years had been the Dramatic Director at USF. But sports did not bear the palm alone. The next decade brought with it Gleeson Library; the annual graduation at the Opera House; evening division courses in fine arts appreciation; a Great Books Program, now disappeared; Poly Sci 140 (noted and praised by Time): the Schola Cantorium; the Adult Education Center; university lectures by the faculty; Phelan Hall, radio and television broadcasts by the Labor Management School; lectures by Dr. John Hicks, Dr. Mortimer Adler, and Fr. Martin D'Arcy, S.J.; the gymnasium; the Phelan Hall annex; and last, but not least, green uniforms for the ROTC cadets. The present merges into the future. Although Santa Clara, USF's sister school, has recently become co-educational, USF has remained true to its tradition. As a men’s school, it was founded — and as a men's school, it has grown and matured. The fads of the present are not its food. Let the student know his school better that he may better represent it, that lie may better serve it, and that he may better love it. May these traditions and legends serve as the building blocks of that better understanding. USF, all hail to thee! 31THE PRESENT Like all living institutions, the University of San Francisco has an historical, immediate, and future existence. The pageant of the historical University of San Francisco is the story of small beginnings in a gold rush town, gradual growth, an academic golden age, destruction by earthquake, and then a long and painful process of restoring the ruins of the work of fifty years. It is an exciting chapter in the history of San Francisco, a tale of Italian Jesuits, Irish students, scientific achievement, exact learning, and magnificent athletic prowess. This yearbook intends to capture in picture and text the highlights of this University’s one hundred year history. The past however, is but a prologue to the present and to the future. It gives meaning in time to the collection of concrete buildings, library stacks, tennis-shoed and button-downed students, basketball teams, professors, and Jesuits which collectively form the organis whole of the University of San Francisco. For ultimately it is the present that concerns us. This is the time of our challenge, the framework of our intellectual growth and endeavor. The immediate University of Sab Francisco is metropolitan in spirit, expanding in facilities, and eager to progress. Eucalyptus lined paths, ivy covered buildings, fraternity row — these are con- 32the University of San Francisco on a wind-swept cloudy day. spicuously absent. Instead, modern concrete buildings, poised on a hilltop, incorporate the beauties of San Francisco into its campus. Only St. Ignatius Church, a replica of St. Paul’s “outside the walls," remind the visitor that this school has roots in an educational system developed in an older, mellower milieu. U.S.F. has the look of newness, in spite of its one hundred year history. Four new buildings have been added within the last eight years—Gleason Library, Phelan Hall, the Memorial Gymnasium, and Xavier Hall, the Jesuit faculty residence. A law school and a science building will be ready within the near future. With these new buildings a change has come over U.S.F. In days gone by Irish-looking fellows who came to school aboard a streetcar formed the sociologically significant portion of the student body. Phelan Hall has made it possible to live on campus. USF is no longer a streetcar college, for now the student population is divided almost half and half between the streetcar riders and the residents. 33 a lone student sits in the descried Campion flail lounge, for all of our days, ue shall remember this place for a multitude of reasons.before the bifi blaze the car parade These facts are relatively known to the student. U.S.F. is a school in transition. Change characterizes this generation. The classes presently attending the University, the decisions being made at present both academic and material—are laying the ground work for the future. In this, both the administration and the student bear a momentous obligation to the future. The path the student walks now shall become roads in the next generation. Thus it behooves the student and professor to walk wisely. Undoubtedly t h e administration has recognized this responsibility. It has made changes affecting the student in concrete dramatic ways. The theology department under Father Zabala has attempted to place the emphasis of the University’s course of religious instruction on Christ’s living presence in the world, so as to better meet the demands of that world. 34 the professor at his deskThe Philosophy department has taken a more liberal bent allowing the individual professors to choose their text. The Psychology department has assigned individual councilors to each student of that department. Concomitant change is taking place throughout the departments as a whole. To he intelligible these innnovations must he seen as a response to the challenge of the times U.S.F. in a very real way is competing with a multitude of colleges in and about the hay area. Within the confines of San Francisco proper, three other institutions: U.C. Extension, City College, and State College are challenging the primacy of the right of the University to call itself the City's own. These institutions too are building and adapting—some more effectively than others. State College has developed a fine teacher training school. In dramatics and music, its reputa-tation is nationwide. U.C. extension ofTers many hundreds of lectures, symposiums, and conferences —some of which bring to the willing learner world famous men. City College is rapidly improving their campus area, attempting to raise academic standards while maintaining their quantitative output of students. 35In one sense these institutions are magnanimously fortunate. They lo not share the problem of the budget. Uncle California and Sister San Francisco dole out the tax flayer’s money as they need it. True, sometimes, these institutions suffer pangs of financial need, but if the pressure becomes severe, all they need do is cry help—and help, sooner or later, will come. Although at first sight, this magic appears as a blessing, perhaps in another sense it may be a curse. The demands, in terms of creativity and adaptation, placed upon the secular institute do not approach those made on the private college. The private college must be good in order to survive. Further, it can take advantage of prerogatives open to it as a private institution which are closed to the secular college. The Private institution can he , directive. The state college is ex profcsso nondirective. The private university can take concrete stands relative to timely issues. The secular college can only offer opinion. Little analysis is needed to discover that what is needed in today’s world is not opinion and conformity, but rather direction and commitment. U.S.F. has the potentiality to fulfill that need. In this, it already stands head and shoulders above the secular institution. 36 RRIGADOOX presented by the college players in conjunction rcith the glee club filled the house" for tun consecutive weeks.IISF Rose of Pella Sig . . . Unfortunately, however, it is too easy to wallow in the achievements of the past and the potentialities of the future. The present is at hand. The future is always future, and the past is always past. Only concrete, immediate action is significant action. U.S.F. is building, organizing, and growing—but in what direction shall these changes lead?To attempt the answer of this question, one must examine the aims of the University: ‘"to mould manhood, to develop the entire man ... to teach him to analyze rather than to memorize, to instill culture ... to disdain mediocrity ...” Perhaps the statement of the aims observes a concomitant change in the statement of the question originally posited. “Is the University’s building and modernizing leading to the achievement of its goals? Is USF at present turning out the type of individual described? The building block of this institution’s educative program is personal student-teacher contact. Teachers set aside a minimum number of hours a week for the purpose of counselling and guiding the student. Photo by I'ano. Wells. FaglianoConceptually, this development aid appears excellent. Yet. pragmatically, it sometimes appears otherwise. Last year, one of the philosophy teachers lamented the lugubrious lack of enthusiasm on the part of the student relative to this opportunity. In two months of office hours, only one student had come to see him. This is not good. In what direction can USF move to make better the present situation Most simply stated, bring the teacher to the student on a personal basis: in seminars, in conferences, in debate. Involvement is prior to questioning, and questioning is prior to learning. The Eastern colleges make good use of informal meetings at the homes of its teachers. Such programs are on a voluntary basis aided and supported by the college. The builders of churches long ago understood the value of the overall atmosphere surrounding the worshipper. Certain environments are simply more conducive to prayer than others. So it is with learning and humanization. The Green and Gold Room is an interesting study in atmosphere; so too is the teachers’ room. Beauty and quietude, to a large extent, have been sacrificed for functionality. In this area, even a few changes might make for big results. Effective lighting, other-than-civil-service color and a few paintings might turn the Green and Gold Hoorn into a place to he rather than a place to go. So too, in other areas of the college. A Senior garden might he reinstated with walks and places to sit (and. incidentally, to think). Undoubtedly, USF has done a great deal in this direction in recent years, yet let us recognize that it still has further to go. the inner conflict and tension so intensely felt tty a coach as he watches his own team is dramatically shown in these insightful phot graphs of basketball coach Pete Pclclta.At the basis of University life is the academic program.. The academic program is an intangible— one just doesn’t see it walking around on legs. One can measure and judge it only in terms of its results. For this reason, difficulty arises in the consideration of it. The present program of “courses in the major” has its advantages. Yet too, at the same time, it has marked shortcomings. Students are too often given a segmentalized unrelated knowledge of facts. Little synthesis is attempted between the various individual disciplines. The trees are often taken for the forest. Certain Eastern schools have attempted to overcome this difficulty by introducing “correlated courses,” ic., as the student studies the impact of Hegel in philosophy, he also examines his effect in history and sociology. Moreover, in many areas, relatively little reading is required of the USF student. Fact is emphasized rather than insight. The great books of the past-—perhaps a series of elective courses offered in this subject—might do much to direct the development of the student relative to his intellectual growth and development.Jeanne John, Mardi Gras queen, and Bob Crowley. AStiSF president at the Sheraton Palace . . . USF is an institution in transition. The achievements of the past, the advances of the present, give promise to the future. The direction and achievement of that future is, in large part, to be determined by the hands of the students and faculty of today. The University, if it is to continue to grow and expand, cannot underestimate the value of critical thought and analysis relative to its total situation. In these times, not to progress is to regress. 41A PROGRESSION OF EXCELLENCE BY EDMOND J. SMYTH, S.J. As the faculty and administration reviewed the past five years in preparation for the quinquennial accreditation visitation last October, it was evident to all concerned that the University of San Francisco had grown in academic excellence. An analysis of the academic preparation and advanced degrees of faculty indicated a highly competent group of masters. Higher admission standards and stricter disqualification policies helped to shape better scholars. New and revised curricula gave both faculty and students better means to develop their intellectual growth. The University can he justly proud of its achievements. But, the University cannot he satisfied. Intellectual excellence, like all life itself, must continue to develop, to grow, to mature. If it ceases to grow, it will die. Consequently, the master and scholars of the University of San Francisco must now look to the future. The future will see a continuous strengthening of the faculty not only in its dedication to excellent teaching, hut also in its production of scholarly research. The future will demand from the students not only a higher standard of achievement but also a greater awareness and acceptance of the obligation for their own intellectual growth. The University, in its pursuit of excellence, will not tolerate those content with mediocrity. Within its halls the inquiring mind will find surprise, stimulation and satisfaction; the passive onlooker will be out of place. For such a faculty and student body plans are now being discussed and developed. The future will sec curricular expansion into graduate work for all the present undergraduate majors, the inauguration of a new major in Sociology and Social Welfare, the realization of a truly liberal Honors Program. Re-arrangement of present scheduling will require some large lecture classes so that the faculty will have more time for research scholarship and will be available for tutorials, undergraduate seminars and the disciplined direction of independent study. In 1961 we look back with pride; we look forward with hope. At the University of San Francisco there will he continuous growth within a framework of excellence because there will be life with its mysterious wonder and its joy of discovery.THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY A CHALLENGE AND A HOPE BY REVEREND J.F.X. CONNOLLY, S.J. Since its foundation in 1855 the University of San Francisco lias constantly endeavored to meet the challenge of the present and to prepare for the future. Our recently inaugurated Second Century Program epitomizes the spirit of the University whose past is a century of service and whose future is a commitment to excellence. The San Francisco area, and indeed and Western civilization, face unparalleled problems as well as opportunities. It is impossible to gauge the effects of increased automation on our society, or what the future growth of the San Francisco urban area will bring. The emerging of rtew nations and the ideological conflict between the free and the Communist worlds w ill create stress in the lives of all men. America and the democratic countries must develop leaders who are equal and able to meet these complex challenges. The aim of the Second Century Program is to make the University of San Francisco capable of fulfilling its role in the critical years ahead. This purpose is being shared by some of our most outstanding citizens, the President’s Advisory Council and the Second Century Committee. Thanks to their generosity and foresight, we have been provided w ith the means to accomplish much growth. More growth will be necessary in the years ahead, lint certainly, at the present time the University is in the strongest position of its history in all its resources of faculty, staff and physical plant. The University will constantly re-evaluate its academic programs. It will change and broaden them. It will strengthen its faculty and programs so its graduates can contribute significantly in this changing period. It w ill search out areas in the community where it can provide leadership, where it can act as a catalyst, and bring attention where public concern should be directed. As San Francisco’s oldest institution of higher learning and its only university, it must and w ill be a dynamic center for intellectual pursuit and community. These are neither half-hearted commitments or ambitious projections. With the support of those who would share in this purpose the University will, with vigor and force, make •hese commitments realities. The future is one which necessitates nothing less than greatness; mediocrity for the student, the citizens or its academic institutions would be a betrayal of democracy. The Second Century Program is the declaration of the University that it will fulfill its responsibilities. 44GRADUATES CONTENTS: class history .................... 48 graduates......................... 54 nursing graduates ................ 8247Market Street, between Fourth and Fifth Streets, SA2 SRiOTCISCO; CAL: Thin Institution, conducted by the Fathers of the Society of Jesus, was opened for the reception of Students on the 15th of October, 1855.

As it is an honor, so it is a responsibility. The responsibility it entails is to God, to society, and to self. The diploma is a beginning. It is a beginning that began when the child asked his first question and opened his first hook. In a very real way, it is the symbol of man’s search for truth. The 10.000 graduates of this university who have received this high laurel of achievement have entered in the most diverse occupations and modes of life. Some of them are now serving God as priests and brothers, others are serving the state as judges and lawyers, and still others are serving society as businessmen and professional people. But although their occupations may vary greatly with respect to what they do and how they do it, they share a common bond — and that bond is this University. 48This present graduating class and its history may be said to be representative of the whole. The events of its times, the deeds of its class, and the personalities of its members bear a remarkable resemblance to the histories of the many classes before them. The present class assembled together for the first time in early September, 1957. Uncertain and somewhat afraid, the group was subjected to the University's week-long “orientations’'’ and testing program. They listened to the warm welcome by Father President, the advice of the Deans, and the thoughtful warnings by Father Moore. At the culmination of the activities. Student Body President, Bob Bianco, impressed them with his congeniality and words of welcome. The registration which followed was an unforgettable experience. Heavy-handed FIC members “encouraged" the group to purchase raffle tickets, dance bids, and photographs. After running this gauntlet of money grabbers, the class entered the congested auditorium and began the confusing registration procedure — a maze of dinks and registration signs. The struggle for classes, the reshuffling of schedules, the endless lines: these experiences epitomized the registration pattern for the next four years. Worried and exhausted the class stumbled from the Little Theatre. Dutiful sophomores greeted them at the exit and sent them running on their separate ways. The week of Frosh Initiation was filled with “Kangaroo Court," push-ups, tray-carrying, nightly mixers, fight songs, running rallies, a successful raid on Lone Mountain, and best of all. no study. The class experienced all these things while they were learning the route to classes, buying their books, and making the gradual adjustment from high school to college. This ordeal ended with the Frosh Smoker and the official invitation into the ranks of the associated students. In the election which followed, the class chose the confident and personable Ken Bollieras class president. The mixer in Phelan Hall provided the fitting climax to the introduction to university life. Throughout the remainder of the semester, the class resigned itself to the task of successfully passing its required courses. The challenges presented by Dr. Lowe, Father Vaughn, S.J.. Father Fisher, S.J., Father Lynch, S.J.. etc, spurred the class on to gain the subject matter required for their eventual graduation. The initial shock it felt confronted with mid-term examinations was surpassed only by the disillusionment of its semester grades. The group vowed to improve. “the class of poetry" pictured in the University garden of the “2nd campusalthough the year tt as IHHH and the dress leas conspicuously different than that of twlay. the group’s action and deeds acre eery much parallel to their counterparts of today. 49these distinguished gentlemen were the only indiiidttals teho received the . IB degree in 1923. there is of course, good reason for this: not only did they have to speak and learn theology and philosophy in Latin, hut Greek u as required as well. The Freshman year was not without its lighter moments. The adventures of Mr. X and Mr. at Santa Clara; tin Yearbook scandal; “Frank Trumbower's Surprise Resignation ; the basketball team s two point loss to Elgin Baylor; Homecoming Week, and the Frosh Fandango made the first year at USF memorable. The class was justly proud of Georgiana Garcia and Betty Jo Baldwill who were chosen as members of the court for the Homecoming, of the frosh basketball team spearheaded by Charley Range, and of the successful completion of the first year in college. I he spirit was dampened by the news of Dave Stevens’ affliction with tuberculosis. The group lelt school that June, after electing Ken Bollier as Sophomore class president, some unfortunately never to return. The following September the class became the hated tormentors of the Freshmen. So confident was the class of its new superiority that it challenged the lowly Frosh to a tug-of-war over a mud roll. It took the class many weeks to remove the dirt particles from its skin and even longer to erase the stigmas of defeat. With their egos greatly deflated, the class pursued more academic endeavors. The Sophomore year passed rather quickly and quietly; only the sarcasm of Sgt. Joe Halli-nan, the Uniform Day of our student nurses, our last march on the drill field, and the Soph Drag at the Bermuda Palms, provided us with many real memories. The opening of our Memorial Gymnasium was marred by a one point loss to the University of Seattle. Charley Range performed for the Varsity that year, hut the over-all season was dismal. Social events and scandals were both at a minimum; the Mardi Gras and the BSC's theft of a Foghorn desk provided the only stimulation. The elections at the end of the year introduced several new figures as the class officers. Kent Davis and AI Blach became Junior Class president and vice-president. The task of yearbook editor was filled by another member of the class. Boh Crowley. They left school that year with a growing realization of their responsibilities in school affairs. The year 1959-1960 marked a low ebb both for the class and the University. Student Government became mired in the mud of controversy and inactivity. The endless and fruitless arguments which inhibited any progress at legislative meetings, spread to the class. The class was confronted with the “weighty” problem of whether or not the Junior Prom should he formal. In the end, this issue was never resolved to the satisfaction of anyone in the class. 50Two basketball coaches were lost that year. Phil Wool pert ami Ross Gimlice. and more than a few basketball games were lost. The once gay Mardi Gra became the occasion for the heated dispute over the positioning of the booths by the BSC chairman and the increased animosity toward Delta Sigma Pi fraternity. “Daily" issues of the Foghorn attacked student body president Boyer August’s failure to solve the unforgettable election controversies. Above the ruin and rubble which remained of Student Government rose a fellow classmate, Rob Crowley, to lead a regeneration of student life. With class support he became student body president. The few memorable events of the Junior Year include the completion of Xavier Hall, the transfer of the Sutro library to USD’s campus, vice president Nixon’s address, the Stan Kenton Concert, the fires in Phelan Hall. Lee Vandendale’s New Movement, and the hundred percent increase of lawn area. Some members of the class were signally honored: Rich Haroourt, Tom Valverde, Tom McNamara. Rob Crowley, Mike McCabe. Marcello Gumucio were appointed to Alpha Sigma Xu; Betty Jo Balkwill, Jo Ann Mulquenny, Mary Pat Singclyn, Ruth Laufcnberg, Barbara Kroetz, were named to Gamma Phi Epsilon. The 1911 graduating class numbered only 10. They had available to them few of the opportunities that the students of today do. Yet, although their task was difficult and their road narrow, they published a 100 page yearbook, participated in Sodality, worked in the Loyola Science Academy, and spoke in the Phil historian Debating Society. This they did as a group, not as isolated individuals. Their school years were full ones because they made them so. 51Joe Silva, Kent Davis, Alan Blach, Rich Harcourt and Ruth Laufenbcrg became our senior class officers; Harcourt was also selected as Foghorn editor. The rest of the class was content to concentrate on meeting the stringent requirements of its major. Summer came as a great relief. The class shall never forget its senior year. The rebirth of genuine school spirit under the guidance of Boh Crowley, ably assisted by the class own Jim Hecht, Fred Reno. Ralph Mcrrell. Vic Pease, was an achievement that the class was proud of. Indeed success became the trademark of every school activity. The reception of the basketball team at the Airport, the bonfire rallies, the car float parade, the off-campus Mardi Gras, and the improved dances, were a few of the contributions made by members of the class to school life. The loss of Father Burke and Father Ryan as teachers was a discouraging setback. Their encouragement and guiding influence were sorely missed throughout the senior year. The year of 1906 was a year of trepidation and sorrow: the work of well over a half a century was destroyed in half a day. An excerpt from the 1909 Senior, a publication sponsored by the graduating class, reads in part: “The College was laid waste together with a large portion of the city and the elass of 1909 was scattered to all parts of the State. Many were burned out and had to seek refuge in the camps throughout the city, but each one was full of hope and anxious for the opening of the new St. Ignatius College at Hayes and Shrader Streets. In September, although workmen were still engaged on the building, classes were resumed.the first student of the sand-dune St. Ignatius, Richard McCabe: undoubtedly, he was much maligned by his neighbors in the infant city. Jesuits were an object of curiosity and very much suspect. Augustus J. Bowie was the forerunner of today's graduating senior, he was the first graduate of the 10,000. Annex and imminent construction of a new law school and a science building gave promise of great advancement in USF in the future. The realization that the seniors’ college days were drawing rapidly to a close made each class and each event more meaningful. The hectic calendar of senior events provided by Alan Blach, Rich Harcourt, and Joe Silva, gave the class little opportunity seriously to consider our impending graduation. The Class was taken up with the success and enjoyment of the Senior Ball, the class banquet, the senior picnic at McNear’s Beach, the senior Exclusive at the Villa and the endless chain of graduation parties, to realize that the days at USF were almost over. The contributions of Charlie Range, baseballers, Denny Amundsen. Jim Barbeau, Hank Oliver and Tom Passalacqua played a prominent role in reviving USF athletics. The fabulous new Don presented to the school in the late spring by Lee Vandendale, and Rich Harcourt’s “quiet” Foghorn were additional memories to cherish. Indeed, as the class sat together for the last time, listening as it had in its first day at USF to the words of Father Connolly, S.J., the class could look back with pride on four years well spent. 53RICHARD M.

President, University of San Francisco My Dear Graduates, As graduates of the University of San Francisco, you are about to enter into an era of dramatic change and great individual responsibility. Perhaps never before in history have the life pursuits of the individual citizens held more meaning for the future strength and very existence of our country. You are entering into an age of the greatest scientific advance, yet a world seething with social and international stress. To some this may seem ominous; it should not. Your heritage of the truth and wisdom of the past imparted to you while at the University, your knowledge and acceptance of the Credo of the University, your thorough understanding of the dangerous threat of world communism has prepared you to meet not only the challenge of the 60 s, but. rather to direct the very course of history by living truly Christian lives and exerting an Ignatian influence on others. Because of the heritage you have received, democracy should grow in strength and bring its promise to more peoples of the world. Whatever you do in the years ahead will be reflected in the well being of your country and the lives of all men. The University willingly accepts its serious obligations of this new era. and 1 hope that with each new year your appreciation of Alma Mater will grow and the University, indeed, will look to your accomplishments with the knowledge that it, in some way, shares them. Our good wishes go with you and may God keep you always. Rev. John F. X. Connolly, S.J. HONOR A P. WADDELL At USF I haic received extensive preparation for Graduate School.

Sodality 3, Representative to Legislature 1. St. Mary's Hall Residence Council 3. Sacramento. California Nursing 86My dear graduates: The theme of this year's Don is history and Tradition. Youth, generally at least, is not known for its sympathy with history and tradition. Youth wants to make its own way, untrammeled by ties of the past, to write its own history, establish its own tradition. This is the very nature of youth, which is venturesome and forward looking. It is quite understandable. Ami somewhat less than wise. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." To ignore the lessons of our own personal experience is folly indeed; and almost equal folly to ignore the lessons of wise men merely because they happen to be our forefathers. “Tradition,” says Chesterton, “may be defined as the extension of the franchise. Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about.” The traditions of the past 106 years here at the University are not merely of antiquarian interest. They can carry us forward into present insights and present action. Only thus do we show that we have learned from our dialogue with our grandfathers. Mav the Spirit of Wisdom, the Holy Spirit, teach you the lesson of tradition. Divine as well as human, and make them bear rich fruit in you and in those to whom you, as both heirs and enrichers of a great tradition, will pass on in your wisdom. Charles W. Dullca, SJ.

ADMINISTRATION This section is delegated to the Administration of the University. Looking at the history of this facet of USF, we find that the Administration itself evolved gradually, as did the institution. In 1855, there was no division between faculty and administration. In the hectic days of USF’s founding, the faculty, administration and staff were one and the same. Most of the burdens of administrative responsibility were, of course, laid on the University’s founder and first Father President, Antonio Maraschi. The early days of Saint Ignatius College show that it was Father President who assumed all the duties of administration. In the relatively uncomplicated days of the late nineteenth century, there was no University Senate or President's Advisory Hoard. These were days when action had to be taken quickly, for hesitancy in decision could annihilate the college as surely as hesitancy in human breath or heartbeat. In 1868 Father Joseph Bayma was appointed President. He contributed to the development of Saint Ignatius by building a new classroom wing. By this time, an increased faculty helped Father President with the task of running the College. (Up to 1868, the forerunner of LSF had only a staff of three.) In 1864, Philhistorians moderator Father Barchi undertook the task of building a library, which wag to grow to 100,000 volumes before being destroyed in 1906. The pre-disaster Saint Ignatius grew to become one of the finest colleges on the west coast, and became particularly famous for its chemistry and physics laboratories. The rapid growth of the school was climaxed in 1905 by a fiftieth anniversary celebration that involved all of San Francisco. A year later, the earthquake and fire of April 18, 1906, destroyed the classrooms. 91the laboratories, the gymnasium, the faculty residence, and St. Ignatius Church. In short, the entire campus of Saint Ignatius College was demolished. This desolation was not confined to the College alone, but was only typical of the cataclysm experienced by all of San Francisco. Bay area citizens panicked, gasped, wept, and then scurried — while ashes still filled the sky and bricks were still hot — to rebuild San Francisco. The Fathers also scurried, erecting the temporary “Shirt Factory” — styleless wooden structure — on Hayes Street at the corner of Shrader. In 1914 the present St. Ignatius Church was completed on “Ignatian Heights” and the old church was to be converted to a gymnasium. In order to do this, the crosses atop the barnlike structure had to be removed. Again the administration got into the picture, as High School Principal Leo Simpson tucked his cassock into his cincture and clambered up the towers to do the job. Father Simpson's small build and busy hustling moved the students to nickname him "Skeeter.” Now in retirement at Xavier Hall, the veteran Jesuit recalls the closeness that bound administration. faculty, and students in those days. With the expansion of the University, bureaucracy was to snuff out much of this closeness. In this period of the early twentieth century, the lay faculty was largely made up of Saint Ignatius graduates. A “staff" — exclusive of janitors — was virtually unnecessary and virtually unknown. Not much emphasis was laid on public relations. One impediment was that female guests (which were rare in these days of all-male Saint Ignatus College) could not visit Father Principal in his office, which overlooked the toilets in the yard. By the University’s Diamond Jubilee year 1930, the administration had grown with the school to the point where Saint Ignatius College had become the University of San Francisco. Father Edward Whelan, as Rector, spearheaded the building of the present St. Ignatius High School at Stanyan and Turk Streets. The administration of USF has increased in size and efficiency as the school has grown. The focal point of the administration’s story remains the leadership of individuals. The previous Father President William 92Dunne lias — thus far — held the longest term of office on the Heights, and is credited with having “kept the school going” during the difficult years of World War II. Father Dunne's negotiations with the U.S. Army converted USF to a training center during the War. This factor, plus tuitions from the High School, barely kept the University afloat until the post-war influx of students. Under his fine leadership the first milestone in IJSF's construction program was realized — the Richard A. Glecson Library. During Father Dunne’s tenure, scholastic matters were well administered by Academic Vice-President Father Raymond Feely. It was he who established (and still teaches) the Political Science 140 course in the “Philosophy, Tactics and Dynamics of World Communism.” Members of the administration and faculty who know him single out “Father Ray” as one who has always been personally concerned with the welfare of the University, and who has alw’ays dedicated himself to this end. The postwar building boom of the 1950's was also manifest on our campus. Under the present administration of Father John F.X. Connolly, which began in 1954, many new structures have risen: Phelan Hall, Memorial Gymnasium, Xavier Hall, Phelan Hall Annex, and now Kendrick Hall, new home of the School of Law. In July, 1959, the work of the administration was facilitated when the Society of Jesus separated the University from its preparatory department, St. Ignatius High School. Father General of the Society, John Baptist Janssens, cited the growth and complexity of both institutions as the reason necessitating fourth (tape of a 1938 Frustrate: an unofficial bulletin of a proup of fanatics, radicals, and brainless uonders dedicated to no one in particular and nothinp in pen-eral.

The academic development of the University under the present administration has also been manifest. One man responsible for this is dedicated Academic Vice-President Father Paul Harney. Another such individual whose activity has become an integral part of the University’s life is Father Edmond Smyth, Dean of the Colleges of Arts and Sciences. Father Smyth, an excellent educational administrator, has made himself especially popular with students by his sincere concern with their welfare, personal as well as academic. Under the present administration, the University of San Francisco has grown to include a fine Graduate Division, an unparalleled Evening Division, and a hustling Summer Session. The Theology department has been revised and rejuvenated, and is about to establish a Master’s program. Next in the plans are a graduate program in English and an undergraduate major in Speech Arts. Just this year, majors in Sociology and Social Welfare have been added. Also expected are radical revisions of the undergraduate Philosophy curriculum and a graduate course in that department. 94 a rare photograph of the 1906 holocaust, the faculty and staff had to begin again anew.The Vigilante , a committee of San Francisco citizens, practice preventive punishment, the group teas at iff height during the early days of Saint Ignatius. The administration has developed greatly from the days of Father Maraschi. Before, it was hut a simple man who was both a bookkeeper and guardian in one; today, the situation has somewhat changed. The growth of USF has necessitated such a change. For example, the addition to our vocabulary of such words as “late registration,” “official withdrawal.” “Bursar's office,” and “Ozalid.” Indeed, the accumulation of red tape has so increased that USF was necessitated to install IBM machines in the basement of St. Ignatius Church. The “smallness” of Saint Ignatius College has vanished. Unfortunately, so has the corresponding closeness. Last year a faculty member complained of the lack of communication between faculty and administration. He cited as a major reason the plurality of bureaus and committees congesting channels of communication. The administration thanked him for his valuable observations, and appointed him chairman of a committee to make a study of the problem. The “smallness” of Saint Ignatius College has vanished.

Its cumulative role deals with virtually every aspect of the collegiate life from the classroom to the basketball court. Its decisions constitute the determining factors of the over-all atmosphere of USF, intellectually ami socially. The advances of recent years, materially and cogita-tively, are the results of its hands. As great as its powers are its responsibilities. Success always implies the possibility of failure. Hence the administrator must be a man who is acute, intelligent, tactful and farsighted. He must be able to accept, to reject, to think and to do.

Under the chairmanship of Charles Kendrick, the Council has, among other achievements, been instrumental in the formulation of the physical and academic planning of the Second Century Program, as well as the establishment of the Second Century Committee. Consequently, it has played a most vital part in the University’s move to meet the future.

Miss Clement and Miss Hodghead directed the school’s activities until 1925 when Ernest Bloch was made director. In 1930 they again assumed the directionship until 1951 when Albert Elkus was appointed. .Dr. Elkus was succeeded by Dr. Robin Laufer in 1957.

Through the generous bequest of Miss Dorothy Lucy in 1947 and with the help of music-minded citizens and friends of the Conservatory a permanent home was established in 1956 with the purchase of a building and property in the Sunset District. By 1960 the Conservatory’s Preparatory School had expanded to include branches in outlying communities; the Undergraduate School offered courses leading to the Music Diploma and Bachelor of Music degree; and the Conservatory had gained recognition for its workshops in opera and contemporary music. Important progress was made during the years of 1960-61. Accreditation was received from the Western College Association and National Association of Schools of Music. A reciprocal arrangement was instituted with the University of San Francisco, enabling students of both institutions to enroll for credit in the other school. In addition, the Conservatory's First Annual Composers’ Workshop won international acclaim. Many of the talented composers whose works were produced during the five-day festival were heard and appreciated for the first time. Carrying on the tradition of its founders, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music serves its students and its community by maintaining high professional standards, encouraging individual creative expression, and offering a well-rounded cultural program designed to prepare the musical artist for a successful performing or teaching career. 109Edward J. Griffin has been a faculty member since 1918. Chairman of the Education Department. he received the A.B. and M.A. degrees from Duquesnc I'nivcrsit) and in 1917 received his Pli.l). from the University of Pittsburg. EDUCATION The University was authorized to prepare secondary school teachers for public school service by the California State Hoard of Education in 1948. A department of Education was established under the chairmanship of Father Paul J. Harney, S. J. Later that year. Dr. Edward J. Griffin was invited to join the slafT to assist Father Harney and to direct the student teaching phase of the program. Father Harney served as chairman until 1957 when he was appointed academic vice-president of the University. Dr. Griffin was then promoted to department head. In 1950, the program was expanded to include training for the secondary school administration and supervision credentials. A program leading to the preparation of school librarians was added in 1958 and in 1960. a program for the preparation of school counselors was included. In 1950 the Graduate Division of the University approved programs leading to the Master of Arts degree in Education with three major fields of emphasis: Elementary Education, Secondary Education, and Secondary School Administration and Supervision. 110Since the establishment of the department, 475 men and women have been recommended for the general secondary credential, and seventy-five secondary school administrators have been trained and granted administrative and supervisory credentials. Of tin latter number. 20 are currently engaged in administrative and supervisory duties in the public secondary schools of California. Several of these graduates are on district and county superintendents' staffs and one is in the office of the State Department of Education. Success marks the man with the U.S.F. education degree. The present faculty consists of six full time instructors and sixteen part-time lecturers. In addition to the efforts made to train people for public school service, the department finds itself in a position to assist materially in training private and parochial school teachers and administrators to meet the requirements for state teaching credentials, for graduate work in Education and, for continuing in-service training and curricular development in the non-public schools. With the growth in staff and enrollment over the last twelve years, the Department of Education has become an integral part of the total University and has, to a gratifying degree, also established itself as a service agency to the University. The department is attempting to respond as effectively as possible to its obligation of educational responsibility and effort in the training of teachers for the schools of California. office of education staff: Dr. Henry Hall.

GRADUATE SCHOOL The Graduate Division, which was inaugurated during t he fall semester of 1949, is an integral part of the University. Initially the graduate curriculum included courses leading to the master's degree in biology, chemistry, and history. In the summer of 1950. the graduate program was expanded by the addition of a program leading to the master’s degree in education. In the fall semester af 1951, a master's program in political science was added to the University’s graduate offering. This Division of the University has shown a steady, consistent growth. The enrollment has increased from ten in 1949 to 245 in 1960. More than 250 people have received their master's degrees from the University of San Francisco since the inception of graduate studies here. Most of these graduates—twenty-five of whom have received doctorates at other institutions — are teaching in elementary and secondary schools, junior colleges and universities located in the midwest, the west, Hawaii, and the Philippine Islands. Other recipients of the degree are engaged in research for private industry or the federal government. 112The teaching staff of the Graduate Division includes people who have written scholarly hooks and published significant research in leading journals for the physical, life, and social sciences. Well-prepared through a happy combination of research and teaching ability, these scholarily instructors offer courses on a high level of scholarships. The long-range plans for graduate studies at the University envision the following curricular expansion within the next decade: master’s programs in business administration, economics, English, law, library science, mathematics, modern foreign languages, nursing, philosophy, physics psychology, social welfare, theology, and sociology. Despite the considerable expense involved in teaching and administrative personnel, library holdings, laboratory equipment, and supplies, the University of San Francisco has made a wholehearted commitment to this phase of its academic work, because of the commanding position which graduate work occupies both in structure of formal education and the life of the community. The elementary and secondary schools, colleges and professional schools implement systems of education and apply educational theories. Graduate Schools develop these theories and train the men and women who will put them into practice. The government, industry, the professions, and welfare agencies also rely on the research and training resources of graduate schools to strengthen both the national economy and our international position. Fully cognizant of the strategic intellectual impact of graduate studies on the individual and the community, the University has endorsed the carefully conceived and planned growth of the Graduate Division. the “machine ’ . . . at the heart of the living University . . . the beginning of the long road . .. 113Francis K.

He received his B.S. from Scton Hall College in 1915 and his LL.B. from Georgetown University in 1918. LAW Six years after the earthquake and fire a new law school was opened in San Francisco. A part of St. Ignatius College, the law school was located downtown, in the Grant Building, while the rest of the college was housed in a temporary wooden building on Hayes Street. The Law school was opened without fanfare of any kind. A notice in the City’s legal paper, “the Recorder,’ announced simply that St. Ignatius Law School was opened for students. That was all. At the beginning the. School of Law was an evening school only; daytime classes did not begin until 1931. Forty-eight years later, the impact of the school upon the legal life of the City has been all out of proportion to it size or to its inauspicious beginnings. Today, one out of every four lawyers in San Francisco is a graduate of I'SF’s Law School. Twenty-seven of its graduates are members of the bench. Huh Itianro and friend. 114 Dean Walsh and another friend.For a full-time student, law school means up to fifty hours a week of study outside the classroom for three years. In order to complete school, he must successfully pass examinations in each required subject every semester—with the final grade for that semester depending on how well he docs the examination. After he finishes school he is not yet permitted to practice the profession he has learned after years of exhausting study; he must first pass a twenty-one hour long bar examination. Few branches of endeavor demand so much from the apprentice. The fiftieth anniversary of the College of Law’s foundation will be more than just an historical milestone for the faculty and graduate. When the fifty year mark is reached in 1962, the Law School will Ik housed in a new three story building on the corner of FTilton and Shrader streets. The new Law School building has been made possible through a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kendrick. The gift is the largest single gift ever received by the University. The building will extend for 205 feet along the Southern side of Fulton Street, and will occupy an area to a depth of 105 feet. The first floor of the building will contain lecture rooms and classrooms, the second floor will contain the main library, the dean’s office and various other administrative rooms, and the third floor will contain more library space and faculty ofTices. The building is designed to accommodate 500 students and a law library of 100.000 volumes. The history of the school of law has been a proud one. This single department has contributed far more to the academic reputation of the University than its mere number or size—at first appearance —would indicate. The University is grateful and appreciative to this department to whom it owes so much. VSF undergraduates study in Gleeson Library . . . 115Andrew C. Boss, S.J., Associate Professor of Economics and Director of the Labor-Management School has been at USF since 1939. He received his A.B. degree from Gonzaga University in 1938, his M.A. from Gonzaga in 1939, the S.T.B. degree from Alma College in 1946 and, in 1948, his M.A. from Georgetown University. LABOR -MANAGEMENT The University of San Francisco Labor-Management School, one of the most respected institutions in Bay Area industrial and labor relations circles, began its 13th year on October 11, 1960, with a series of six courses on facets of labor and management relations. Since it was founded in 1948, the school has trained over 3,000 men and women from union and management groups. An average of 100 persons take the courses each term. Perhaps the most dramatic of its achievements has been the work the school did in settling two strikes which were causing serious difficulties to the general San Francisco public. In 1952, the Sailors’ Union of the Pacific and the Pacific Maritime Association were engaged in a dispute that had tied up all shipping in the area. When talks were deadlocked and negotiations broken off, the union and management groups were brought together by the USF Labor-Management School in a meeting that settled the strike. Four years later, a two month-long strike in the city’s funeral homes and cemeteries had resulted in an 800-body backlog in the city’s mortuaries awaiting burial. Again, the parties involved couldn’t get together. After a dramatic all night meeting, arranged by the Labor-Management School, Jack Goldberger, president of the San Francisco Labor Council, and Jerome Cahill, attorney for the funeral directors, issued this statement: “Through the efforts of Father Andrew Boss, Director of the Labor-Management School at the University of San Francisco, the negotiating committees were brought together tonight and reached an agreement which will be favorably reported to their respective memberships.” The strike was settled. 116farm labor and management brought together on the “Bracero” conference, to the left is labor, to the right is management, at the center is Fr. Boss, SJ. In addition to offering courses designed for both labor and management, the school sponsors workshops and symposiums designed to highlight specific problems in industrial relations. Some of the most successful have been a minority manpower employment symposium and the two conducted last year, one on new labor legislation and one on the manpower challenges of the 60’s. The school has not been idle in educating the public to the intricacies of labor-management relations. USF won a Freedom Foundation in 1953 for its Human Relations in Industry program sponsored by the Labor-Management School over local radio and television. Roth labor and management have the highest respect for the school, a somewhat unique development in these days of increasing tension between unions and management. On the occasion of the school's tenth anniversary, 1957, Frank Boise, executive vice-president of the Federated Employers of San Francisco said, “The school affords representatives of labor and management the remarkable opportunity to meet in joint classes, under competent and experienced leadership, for the study of ways to enlarge the areas of agreement and diminish the field of conflict. The large number of participants benefit markedly and so does San Francisco." George Meany, President of the AFL-CIO said of the school, “This school has pioneered in advancing labor and industrial relations on the West Coast. I know it has achieved an enviable record in obtaining the cooperation of all segments concerned in the building of a healthy economy for the people of California and our nation."Gerald A. Sugrue. S.J., Director of the Evening Division, has been at USF since 1940. In 1931, he received his A.B. degree from Gonzaga University and in 1932 received his M.A. from Gonzaga. In 1939, he received the S.T.L. degree from Alma College. EVENING DIVISION Too few realize that our University continues after dark to serve our community by offering a sound education leading to the traditional degree. Over two thousand students each semester avail themselves of this opportunity. To them it is the school of the second chance. For one reason or another their schooling has been interrupted and they are no longer able to follow the normal pattern of college life. It is a most welcome sight to sec mature men and women pursuing program of Philosophy, Mathematics, Psychology, Economics, History, Political Science, English Languages, Business Administration, Social Welfare and Sociology with the intent of finally obtaining their degree. Their difficulties are many and their sacrifices great. The University is justly proud of these Evening Division students as it realizes fully the wonderful opportunity that is offered and the great good that is accomplished.. 118the teachers meet . . .

He was granted his S.T.L. from Alma College in 1951. In 1956, he received his P.H.D. from Fordhani University. PSYCHOLOGY CENTER The Psychology Center was established in 1959. Affectionately termed the “Happy House” or the “Nutcracker Suite,” the Center provided comfort and companionship to those students who feel inclined to drop by for counseling and guidance. And while it would be inaccurate to say that streams of wild-eyed students pour in and out of the Center daily, it has nevertheless proved highly successful in satisfying the needs for which it was established. The Center provides a reading center to aid students to develop reading speed and retention and counseling services with regard to vocational aptitude, psychological advice to the students, personality and intelligence evaluations, academic guidance and so forth. Serving under Father Vaughan is Dr. Hellen McTaggart, director of the reading center, and Dr. Robert Milligan, director of the testing and guidance center. Students who have never taken advantage of the Psychology Center might he inclined to view it either humorously or possibly fearfully. Too often, common opinion mitigates against psychiatric treatment or even simple intelligence evaluation. But the staff of the Center does its best to overcome this common misconception; it is congenial, warm, friendly: ever ready to help the student in whatever capacity it is called upon to do. Its effect has been highly beneficial since its establishment. 120stage I: patient is strapped into place, lie detector device applied. stage 2: Professor Doctor Colwell checks out brainwave penetrator.

Theirs is the responsibility to encourage the student to want to educate himself, to take the active interest in learning which marks the essence and the goal of education.ECONOMICS The Department of Economics began in 1927 when the University moved to its present site on Ignatian Heights. Since its beginning the department has expanded steadily, especially in the postwar years. In the past five years the number of students enrolled in the major of Economics has increased by fifty percent. The Department of Economics services the College of Business Administration by providing students of that College with the economic theories which underlay business operations, and establish relations between government, agriculture, business, and labor. In the field of Liberal Arts, Economics is becoming more and more important in fields which formerly felt no need for its study. Such fields as history, political science, and international relations are heavily dependent upon the factor of economics. Richard E. Mulcahy, S.J.. Associate Professor of Economics and Dean of the College of Business Administration has been at the University since 1910. The present staff is the largest in the history of the department. Chairman of the Department and Professor of Economics, Richard E. Mulcahy, S.J., specializes in economics doctrine; Dr. Frederick A. Breier, Associate Professor of Economics, has as his specialty the Common Market in Europe; Dr. Otto Morgenstern, Assistant Professor of Economics, special interest in International Economics; and Mr. L. A. O'Donnell, Instructor of Economics, who specializes in the field of Labor relations. Plans for the future include an experimental course in economic theory; this would replace the economic principles course now being offered by the department. Plans also call for a course in econometrics and, ultimately, a Master's Program in Economics for which there is, at present, a great demand. 124 Frederick A. Breier (I.), Associate Professor of Economics, has been at USF since 1915. And Liguori A. O’Donnell (r.), Instructor in Economics, has ! ccn on the Hilltop since 1958.ENGLISH Prior to its establishment as an independent department, English was taught as an adjunct of the standard Liberal Arts courses. At that time the subject and major presently referred to as English was termed “belles lettres,” this latter term also including the study of Latin and Greek literature. This Liberal Arts program remained fixed, or more accurately, frozen, until the College moved to its present site. At this time, with the pressure of the accrediting groups and the spread of specialization, it became necessary and advisable for the university to organize itself on the present departmental system. Until the founding of the School of Education, in which teachers are prepared for secondary education, the Department of English was restricted in scope to those who simply wished the B.A. degree with an English Literature emphasis. With the addition of this school, the number of students majoring in English has advanced steadily. Courses are now offered in a wide range of John J. Coleman. S.J., Assistant Professor of English, received his A.B. degree from USF in 1929, the M.A. degree from Stanford University in 1931 and his S.T.B. from Alma College in 1944. He has been at USF from 1938. file English Department seated left to right: Dr. Coffey, Dr. Lowe, Dr. Kirk. Dr. Gleason. Dr. Lawless, Father Coleman. S.J. and Father Ford. S.J. fields. Creative writing, journalism, national and period literature, as well as study of individual authors, provide the core of study. Associated with the department are courses offered as remedial, non-credit courses, including remedial reading, English for the foreign born (both spoken and written) and a basic course in English skills and usage. Members of the Department of English include the chairman, John J. Coleman, S.J., David M. Kirk, Warren J. Coffey, Francis B. Ford, S.J., John B. Gleason, Anne E. Lawless, Irving Lowe, and Edward V. Warren, S.J. Present plans call for the addition of masters program in English: this department is already well on the way to establishment. As plans do not call for a program leading to the doctorate, the masters program will l e arranged so that graduates will lie prepared to enroll in any other graduate school in the country to complete their work leading to this highest academic distinction. 125Donald R. Campbell, head of the History Department, has been at the Hilltop since 1952. HISTORY The Department of History has consistently attracted a very large number of Majors over the years. This has been due to many factors. But one important influence was that of Fr. Peter M. Dunne, S.J.. who headed the Department for many years. Father Dunne was acknowledged as one of the great authorities in Latin American history; his reputation as a scholar, his skill in guiding the Department, and his ability as a teacher all added to the Department's prestige. The courses in .United States History from the colonial period to the present are supported by an extensive library collection of considerable distinction in such areas as that of the Civil War and on such special subjects as Theodore Roosevelt. The Upper Division courses in European history run in a regular sequence from the early Middle Ages to the Events of the 1950 s. Here again the Library collection is growing. thus supporting and enriching the Department’s offerings. Courses in Asian history and Soviet history have been added in recent years. The number of graduates working for the M.A. degree in History has steadily grown over the past ten years. Today there are more graduates enrolled in History than in any other graduate program other than that of Education. Undoubtedly, this department shall continue to grow and advance in future years contributing to its university and its city. the History Dc Htrimcnt acuity from left to riftht: Donald R.

Even in the earliest days of St. Ignatius College, the Latin, Greek, French, German and Italian languages were taught. Latin and Greek have been essential to the classical education and in the study of early literature and philosophy; French a n 1 German are necessary for all graduate w ork , especially in the sciences. In today's world, the emphasis in teaching languages has shifted in recognition of the need for international communication. Hence the necessity of the study of modern languages has been recognized and the fulfillment of a language requirement has been made a part of the Liberal Arts curricula. Students at USF are now required to pass an examination in the reading, writing, speaking and conversation in the language of their choice in order to graduate. Two years ago Fr. P. Carlos Rossi, S.J., designed and constructed an electronic language laboratory, a revolutionary new way to teach foreign languages. Thus the student is provided with the opportunity to hear the foreign language spoken, to speak the language himself and, from the recordings he makes, to hear his own conversation in comparison with that of the professor. Most of the ‘‘teaching'’ is, in fact, accomplished through the laboratory technique, the class hour being devoted to discussion of problems of the language and some teaching of grammar. The history of the language department has been one of a steady progression. Luigi I). Sandri. Professor of the Romance Languages, has been on campus since 1941. He received his B.S. degree from the Instituto Tecnico, Siena, Italy; his A.B. from the University of California in 1935 and his Ph.D. from UC in 1941. members of the Classics Department are from left to right: Lloyd R. Barns. SJ-. assistant professor; Luigi D. Sandri, chairman and professor; and Giucinto Matteucig. associate professor. Professors of the Romance Languages, P. Carlo Rossi, S.J., has been at USF since 1910 and Karl Schmidt, Instructor of German, lias been on the faculty since 1959. 127PHILOSOPHY Albert C. Corcoran, S.J.. Professor of Philosophy. has been at USF since 1915. He received both his A.B. and M.A. at Con-zaga University in 1926 and 1927, respectively. His S.T.L. from Alma College in 1937 and his Ph.D. from Fordham University in 1915. The philosophy department began when the University of San Francisco began. Philosophy being one of the basic courses, if not the most basic in a liberal education, the need for the department was apparent in the very beginning. The difference then was that philosophy tended to orient itself more around the classical philosophical systems, products of the great minds in philosophy: Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Hegel, Hume, Kant. Little treatment was given to the so-called tangential fields of philosophy: science, aesthetics, religion, history and so on. Each of these systems was based on attempts to offer complete, fundamental answers on basic questions of metaphysics; the uses to which these fundamental viewpoints were applied were more the work of their followers: The Platonists, Thomists, Hegelians, etc. The University of San Francisco, then, as today, taught the Aristotelian-Thomistic discipline, believing it to embody rational answers to the metaphysical questions as well as providing a basis for related fields.Modern thought, it is fairly well recognized, has—while not disproving completely—nevertheless discarded these classical philosophical systems. The influence of Hume and Kant themselves, and more exactly that of the positivists, empiricists and pragmatists have had the effect of eliminating metaphysics from much of contemporary philosophic discussion. Not that contemporary thought has disproved the old system and established another in its place, but by becoming immeshed in the universalization of science which took place in the last century, philosophy has been forced to eliminate many of the questions to which it formerly devoted itself and in which, frankly, it found its attractiveness. Many of these questions arc now thought to be empirically unanswerable; therefore they have been rejected. Thus modern philosophy has concerned itself almost totally with the tangential areas; no one has made an effort to build another elaborate system or leave the realm of empiric investigation to delve into traditional metaphysics. The Jesuits at the University of San Francisco, aware of the trends of modern thought, have sought tirelessly to introduce new approaches to the study of philosophy. Courses which are historically oriented have been introduced within the last fifteen years, covering the major philosophers in the 17th, 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. More recently much work has been expended in the teaching of the philosophies of science, aesthetics; soon to be introouced will be the fields of religion and history. But beneath all this, and providing a basis for it. lies the Aristotelian-Thomistic philosophy traditional in Jesuit colleges and universities. F.fforts are now being made to put “the candy coating on the philosophic pill" as it were, but the teaching of philosophy must still be of real appeal to the few who are willing to devote themselves to a thorough study. For the rest, philosophy can serve as a guide in other activities or as a somewhat interesting sidelight to their major fields; the real appreciation of it will have to wait until they are past the years of youth and reach the years of contemplation and question. the Philosophy Department of (SF (silting) left to right: James R.

McDonnell, S.J., Assistant Professor of Political Science and chairman of the department, has been at USF since 1916. At Gonzaga University he received his A.B. in 1935 and his M.A. in 1936. In 1912, he obtained his S.T.B. at Alma College and his Ph.D. in 1918 at St. Louis University. POLITICAL SCIENCE Political Science, as now taught, originated historically from the field of philosophy, and more particularly, the field of social philosophy. Gradually the area of study came to be called Political Economy; and.rather recently, has emerged as the study of political science. As taught at the University of San Francisco. Political Science is divided into four major areas: Political Theory and Law; Public Administration; Governments and Politics; and International Relations. Students are required to take several courses in each field, thus guaranteeing them a wide-range view of the major. None of these fields can be studied in isolation from the others. For that matter, political science studied alone (aside from economics, history, philosophy and so forth) remains academic. The faculty of the Department of Political Science includes Timothy L. McDonnell. S.J. (emphasis in political theory and the legislative process); Raymond T. Feely. S. J. (the philosophy, dynamics, and tactics of Communism); Alphonse T. Fiore (Public Administration); Donald W. Brandon (International Relations); Alexander Smetana (Constitutional I.a» and American Political Tradition); Robert C. MacKenzie (Public Administration and Geopolitics). 130members of the Political Science Department faculty. left to right: Donald W. Brandon. Timothy McDonnell. $J., Alexander Smetana.

PSYCHOLOGY The Psychology Department is the youngest of all the departments in the University. Last year its first graduates received their diplomas. Nearly a third of these pioneers were accepted by graduate schools and are now pursuing higher studies. The seeds of the department were sown when Father Vaughan returned from graduate work at Fordham University in New York and an internship in clinical psychology at St. Mary’s Hospital, San Francisco. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Bevan, coming from Dayton University, doubled the staff of psychology instructors. With the addition of Dr. Colwell, who had just completed his doctorate requirements at American University in Washington. D.C., the department was officially formed. The addition of Dr. McTaggart and Dr. Milligan, both of whom in addition to their other work in the university contribute their services to the department, greatly strengthened the curriculum. In the short space of two years, the department has grown rapidly and attracted considerable interest among the students of the University. It now boasts of sixty majors and thus is far from the smallest department in the University. The future gives promise of even greater things. Space has been allocated to the department in the new science building. These radically expanded facilities will greatly improve the quality of course offerings in the areas of experimental and clinical psychology. An advanced laboratory will allow for animal research and for more complex investigations in the field of human behavior. One of the more immediate goals of the department, once the new facilities are ready, is the establishment of a soli l Masters Program in the areas of clinical and school psychology. 132 members of the psychology department, left to right: Harold T. Bevan. Richard '. Vaughan. SJ., Helen P. McTaggart, James M. Colwell. Robert Milligan.SOCIOLOGY The Department of Sociology and Social Welfare, not as yet a Department in the sense that it is ready to accept majors, is the most recent extension of the University’s program of seeking out additional ways in which it can ! e of service to the community. Its two-pronged emphasis, between which students will be able to choose an area of concentration, is an attempt to meet the ever-growing demand for the academic and research oriented sociologists on the one hand and for personnel of true professional stature to enter the vast number of social service agencies on tlie other. In the brief period since the arrival on the Hilltop of the Department's first full-time faculty member, Dr. Ralph Lane, in the Fall of 1958, its growth rate has been nothing short of phenomenal. In rapid succession Dr. Mary J. McCormick and Rev. Eugene Schallcrt, S.J., augmented the regular staff and Mr. Daniel E. Jennings, Jr., completed Ralph I ane, assistant professor of Sociology and head of the Sociology Department has l cen on campus since 1958. the roster on a part-time basis. Enrollments in the burgeoning number of course offerings have been heavy, a measure of student enthusiasm for the Department’s approach to pressing social problems. Perhaps the most noticeable indication of the Department’s success to date is to he found in a couple of “empirically observable phenomena,” to borrow one of its own phrases: the generous larding of Phelan Hall bull sessions with rarified words from the sociological vocabulary and, what is probably a “correlated variable,” an impressive new wave of paperbacks being toted back and forth between Campion Hall and the Green and Gold Room. Father Eugene J. Schallcrt. S.J.. assistant professor of sociology, has been at USF for four years, off ami on, since 1956. 133Albert J. Zabala. S.J.. the Head of the USF Theology Department, has been at USF since 1952. He received his A.B. at Gonzaga University in 1944; his M.A. at Gonzaga in 1945, his S.T.L. from Alma College in 1951, and his S.T.D. at the Catholic University of Paris in 1959. THEOLOGY The study of theology has been traditional at USF since the founding of the school. Required only of Catholic students, the course offerings in theology are. in character, an academic treatment of the whole doctrinal and moral system of the Catholic Church; in effect, an abridged course in systematic theology. The development of each subject demands reference to the Old and New Testament writings, to patristic literature and to Church History. Until recently, cours.es were primarily systematic in curricular presentation. Two years ago the general framework was altered, placing heavy emphasis on historical development during the lower division courses and treating doctrinal matter in upper division work. These two broad areas are referred to specifically as Judaeo-Christian Origins and Christian Wisdom. The effect has been a greater stimulation toward the study of theology, resulting in a more meaningful comprehension, a more factual understanding. Members of the department include the chairman. Father Albert J. Zabala. and Fathers Casey. Brown. Diebels, Duffy, Keane, Lynch. Ryan, Scannell, Schallert.

Until then, biology courses had been given mainly by the lecture and text-book method and much of their subject matter had been pre-medicine with the “pre” left out. There was little in the way of laboratory classes as we know them today. And there was no research done by faculty members to give them that all-important, first hand contact with science and to bring prestige to the University. But with the change in name there came a change in policy. While the chief business of the Department continued to be teaching, a new emphasis was placed on scholarship which applied to teachers as well as students. Microscopes and other equipment essential to observation and experiment were provided to bring the laboratories up to University standards. T h e pre-medical students profited as much as any by these improvements, and the reputation of USF as a pre-medical training school soared. The Department of Biology has sought to give its majors an unquenchable curiosity and a zeal for satisfying it, a care for exactness and an orderliness of thinking. It has endeavored to prepare them for a career in biology, a career which will be enriched by research utilizing the modern tools of all the sciences. In this emphasis on modern research the Department of Biology has led the way at USF by its example, for back in the early thirties basic work on the systematics of insects was begun with the first important study on the embryology of fleas, the results of which were published by the Smithsonian Institution. Other Since 1930 the staff has been increased from two to six; two of these were added when instruction in biology was exte'nded to the Evening Division. The Department also participates in the work of the Graduate Division and maintains service courses for the school of Nursing. In the area of scientific journalism the Biology staff has made an outstanding contribution by editing the Wasmann Journal of Biology which is published by the University. This journal, which publishes only the results of original research, includes on its mailing list scientific institutions and universities all over the world. Edward I.. Kessel, F.oia C. Uoolley, Robert T. Orr are members of the RiologY Department. studies in this series approaching systematics from the disciplines of serology, distribution, ecology, and natural history have led to the publication of some 50 scientific papers. Faculty contributions in the areas of protozoology, physiology, population genetics, oceanography, ornithology, mammalogy, and mycology have swelled the number of scientific publications to more than 100, at least five of which may Ik? characterized as hooks. 136 Edward L. Kessel. head of the biology department.CHEMISTRY The Chemistry Department started with the courses given in the Market (Jessie) Street building in 1863. By 1870 it was occupying part of a new wing of the building, having a laboratory, lecture room, assaying office and a mineral collection. When the college moved to the Van Ness and Hayes building in 1880 there were large, well equipped laboratories, particularly for analytical chemistry and assaying. The apparatus included coke fired furnaces, crucibles and anvils for making assays. As many as 600 assays a year were performed in the adjustment of mining claims. Most of the chemicals and equipment were of French origin, brought around Cape Horn. It was all of the highest quality; some of the apparatus had been used by Reg-nault and Tyndall in their classical research work. The prize possession of the laboratory was one gram of radium bromide, purchased in Austria in 1904, which was lost in the fire of 1906, together with everything in the building. The temporary building on Hayes Street had laboratories gay with tinted floors and white wood William Maroney, Chairman of the Chemistry Department. has been teaching at USF since 1936. wmmm members "I the Chemistry Department: Melvin Gorman.

Father James Conlon conducted the chemistry courses in those days, continuing to teach when the department was moved into our present building, and up until 1938. His students included Prof. Gorman, Prof. Orr and Prof. Waidcr of the present science staff. The most noteworthy recent development in the Department has been in the use of research in teaching. The research programs of the faculty have been augmented by grants from government and private sources, so that they are now able to make significant contributions to chemical knowledge. The active participation of the students in research—a long tradition on the hilltop—has resulted in the publication of many major contributions to leading scientific journals. The rigorous empirical zeal of our illustrious Jesuit predecessors is being carried on by the faculty and students of today. 137PHYSICS Karl J. Waider, Professor of Physics, who has been a USF faculty member for 31 years. The history of the Department of Physics dates back to the earliest clays of the University of San Francisco. The study of natural philosophy as physics used to be called, formed an integral part of the program of study introduced by the Jesuit Fathers when the institution was founded. It may be noted in particular that the scientific equipment installed in the institution’s physical laboratories on Van Ness Avenue, destroyed in the earthquake and fire of 1906, was reputed to be among the finest of its day. The department majors date from 1936 when the major in pure physics was first offered. In 1955, because of the rapid advance of the electronics industry in the local area, the major in electronic physics was added. To date there have been 54 departmental graduates. The majority of our graduates have gone on to further study in graduate schools throughout the country and a fair percentage has attained the doctorate. The number of departmental majors h a s averaged about 70 in the recent years and the number of graduates about seven per annum. The present staff of the Department consists of three full-time faculty members and three part-time individuals. There is also a full-time departmental mechanician. Karlier this month the Department received a grant of S10.432 from the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission to use in equipping a laboratory in atomic a n d nuclear physics. Presently also the staff is engaged in planning its facilities in the new Science Building. It has been allocated a substantial portion of this building and its laboratories, lecture rooms and research areas are being designed for a future expansion into the graduate field. 138 department of Physics staff: Phillip Applebuum.

Take some students, some teachers, including a Father Thomas J. Saunders, and a Dr. Karl Waider. and the year 1936 and you have the year first foundations of a mathematics curriculum. % Mathematics (elementary through calculus) was first offered at USF in 1936, but it took a World War and the United States Army to formalize the curriculum into a department. The Mathematics Department of today grew out of the needs of the Army’s wartime special training program at USF, and its consequent demand for more trained scientists. It was established in the early years of World War II. A Math major first became available in 1949. Father Saunders, Mr.Edward Farrell. Dr. Irving Sussman, and the late Father Robert S. Rums, S.J., developed the modern curriculum. John E. Fischer. S.J., the head of the Mathematics Department. has been at USF since 1954. the mathematics faculty, left to right: David J. Walsh. S.J.. Thomas J. Saunders. S.J.. John E. Fischer. S.J.. Eduard T. Farrell. Sand Kishore. Reverend John E. Fischer, S.J., began teaching at USF 7 years ago, and succeeded to position of department head within one year. The staff was enlarged in 1955 and 1956 with the addition of John B. Brillhart, and Nand Kis-hore. Thomas Frayne, a USF graduate of the class of 1955, joined the department in 1960. Besides majors of its own department, the math group services majors in the natural sciences, business administration, education, sociology and psychology. It has the largest number of student contact hours of any department in the College of Science. The demands of the electronic era make it necessary for the Department to constantly modernize its curriculum. A major revision will go into effect in the Fall (’61), and a math major will be offered in the Evening Division for the first time. The installation of a high-speed computer is in the formative stages. Its teachers must also keep pace with the changing and broadening field of mathematics. At present, four of the Mathematics Department’s instructors are candidates for the doctorate degree. 139Richard E. Mulcahy. S. J. plays the dual role of Associate Professor of Economics and Dean of the College of Business Administration. He has been at USE since 1940. BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION Business Administration became a separate Department in 1920, not until 1947 did it become the College of Business Administration. During these years the University of San Francisco graduated, as it still does today, some of the finest business and civic leaders in the city and, for that matter, in the state. In 1951, the College switched to the core system of curricular arrangement, that is, a basic course in Business Administration was offered each student in the College. The student is then permitted to select an area of emphasis as his studies progress. 140The aim of the college is briefly, to develop educated businessmen. As the Dean of the College-has stated in a work of his, entitled Why A Business College?. “The businessman we hope to graduate should be a man of integrity, who is socially adjusted, possesses perspective and imagination, can think and make decisions, is able to express himself, knoivs the essentials of business, and is proud of his profession." And further on in the same work: “It is sometimes said a student ran acquire a knowledge of business administration on the job after graduation. No doubt this is true in regard to certain phases of business, particularly techniques. However, the philosophy, history and theoretical principles of a field are hardly learned in the job." At present the College of Business Administration includes some of the finest people in the field —indeed it is certainly the finest staff in the history of the College. Included on the faculty are Miss Virginia Berry, Law in Business Administration, Edwin Baltimore, Accounting, David 0. Duran, Accounting. Mr. Hawkins, Marketing, Dr. Hollos, Production Management, Mr. Simini, Accounting, and Dr. Yuan-li Wu, International Business. Plans for the future include the establishment of a graduate school for the degree of Master of Business Administration and, somewhat later, a Masters degree in accounting.

He came to the hilltop in the fall of the 1960 year. MILITARY SCIENCE The Reserve Officers’ Training Program was established at the University of San Francisco in 1936 at the request of the University officials, for patriotic motives, in an effort to cooperate with the federal government in its plan for national defense. At that time, a Coast Guard Artillery unit was formed. In the nation’s effort to meet the demands of World War II the ROTC Program gave way briefly to the Army Specialized Training Program in 1945. Following the war in 1946 the ROTC Program was again established at this University with an Artillery unit composed largely of veterans. In 1951 a Transportation unit was added. 142Graduates of the ROTC program served both in World War II and in the Korean Conflict. More than a hundred former University students gave their lives in World War II and thirteen were killed during the Korean Conflict. Many of these had received much of their military training at the University of San Francisco. In the fall of 1954, the General Military Science curriculum was established. Since then, graduates of the ROTC course have been commissioned in practically all branches of the Army. The program has been developed to include two military fraternities, the Scabbard and Rlade and the Pershing Rifles. Included in the present program is a rifle team that has brought credit to the University in this field Three former members have been elected to the All American Rifle Team. In 1958 the ROTC Department moved to its new quarters in the Memorial Gymnasium. A year later the new Army Green uniform was authorized and issued to all cadets of the Military Department. The total enrollment of the ROTC now exceeds 600 cadets and has a staff of ten military personnel. Officers and non-commissioned officers are assigned full-time duty to administer the program. Colonel C. W. Dietz is the Professor of Military Science. Colonel Dietz arrived at USF in July of 1960. Other officers of the Military staff arc Major X. V. Cipriano and Captains W. N. Taylor, M. R. Owen, and W. M. Scott. In addition to the officers mentioned above there are five non-commissioned officers: M-Sgts L 0. Hjelmstad, J. J. Hallinan, R. W. Nissley, W. A. Stern, and SFC A. J. Budjako.

She received her diploma from Mercy College of Nursing in 1928. From San Francisco College for Women she received her BS degree in 1936, and from St. Louis University she obtained her MS in Nursing in 1956. NURSING The University of San Francisco is traditionally a men’s institution. In 1948, just after the lean war years, the University, in need of students and monetary help, introduced two district nursing programs: one for the registered nurse and the other for students w h o later completed their nursing through St. Mary’s College of Nursing. In 1954, in keeping with a national trend for integration of liberal and nursing education into a truly collegiate four-year program, a radical change was made in the existing nursing curriculum. The Department of Nursing, under the jurisdiction of the College of Sciences, now became an integral unit within the University; an academic entity on a par with other departments. The University of San Francisco assumed responsibility for entire program for students admitted to its Department of Nursing. Lay women and Sisters of Mercy were appointed to the faculty. The curriculum was so organized that the student in nursing, like her peers in other colleges of the University, completed her program in four academic years and graduated with the rest of her class at the end of her eighth semester. St. Mary’s Hospital became the clinical area in which students received most of their professional experience under the direct control and supervision of the nursing school faculty. Other agencies such as County Health Departments, State and County Hospitals, and Nursery Schools became additional centers where students might learn more about people and their nursing needs by giving direct care to patients. Women students began to be a familiar scene on the University campus. Orientation week saw Freshmen students of nursing wearing “dinks” and placards, and participating in the usual routines imposed on the new student by zealous upperclassmen.. When the nationally famous USF basketball team scored its fantastic victories and the rooting section burst forth into triumphant cheers, the newly created song girls, in vivid green and gold, led the enthusiastic supporters. More and more, the sacred precincts of the hitherto all male ASUSF were invaded by students of the growing department of nursing. 144The men began to realize, surprisingly perhaps, that women could assume a useful role in student body affairs. They were full fledged members of ASUSF with all rights, privileges, and responsibilities inherent in membership from the payment of B.S.C. fines to assuming office on the Executive Committee itself. In the Spring of 1956, the Department of Nursing was raised to a school within the University. This was a busy year, with consultation visits from representatives from the National League for Nursing as well as innumerable visits and meetings with other leaders in nursing; checking, appraising, advising, organizing, and carefully plotting the course which this new ship would take in the educational sea. And then, early in 1958, an official visit from the National League for Nursing resulted National Accreditation for the basic program. The first class of seventeen students from this program graduated in June 1958. In the spring of the following year the general nursing program for the registered nurse was also awarded national accreditation. Graduates from the basic program, including this year’s class, now total seventy-seven. All classes have made consistently high scores on the State Board licensing examination which confers the title of registered nurse. One of the graduates has taken the vows of Religion as a Sister of Mercy; one has completed a Master’s degree in psychiatric nursing; others are utilizing their nursing skill in such varied areas as operating rooms, hospital clinical units, public health agencies and doctors offices. Some hare followed their husbands to countries such as Germany and Japan while yet others are following their all-important career of homomaking closer to their Alma Mater. The University of San Francisco School of Nursing is also represented in the ranks of the United States Army, Navy, and Air Force Nursing Corps. The School of Nursing is proud of its graduates who carry on the University’s tradition of leadership and who bring the spirit of mercy into the modern health field. Some day, perhaps, the University will be able to offer a Master’s degree fii Nursing.

THE YEAR II is in the light of the students, that the USF year must he considered. Through the University’s one hundred six years, traditions and attitudes have been born and buried, and all of them have significantly influenced that basically stable phenomenon known as the school year. When the High School and College were jammed together in the old “Shirt Factory" at Hayes and Shrader Streets, the spirit of the college men was at a low ebb. As the twenties progressed, USF students counted two decades spent in these “temporary” quarters, and students on the collegiate level tended to regard themselves as inmates in an overgrown prep school. To be sure, the combination of the High School and the College made positive contributions to spirit also. Rivalries between the two departments were keen, and social barriers between collegians and preps loomed prohibitively. Before the “Shirt Factory,” the grand pre-1906 campus of Saint Ignatius College also had its own distinctive spirit, just as did Father Maraschi's one-room schoolhouse on Market Street. The USF year has always followed a basic pattern of academic tensions and releases. The beginning of each school year has traditionally involved orientations of new students and reunions among returning I48 Dons. Another inherent September tradition, of course, is the initiation of Freshmen.the Freshman-Sophomore brawl in 1920. here, the sophs prepare for attack with a supply of spoiled fruit . . . 149 . . . and the attack is on, but. . .Direct physical hazing of individuals was never approved by the Administration, although it is virtually certain to have occurred in USF’s earlier years. In the tradition-laden years between 1926 and World War II, particularly, frosh-soph rivalries were always at a fever pitch. For example, when the University moved to Ignatian Heights upon the erection of Campion Hall in 1926, the freshmen were prohibited from using the front entrance to the building. The new spirit engendered by a new campus manifested itself in a lively initiation period, as well as in a rejuvenated interest in all school activities. The fall semester has always brought with it a new interest in studies. Unlike the somewhat tiring spring term, the autumn session repeated resolutions and renewed attempts. The academic adrenalin of September, though is joined by several other factors: the strengthening of social events and other extracurricular activities, and the rousing clamor of sports. For many years the brisk autumn was characterized by the reign of football on the L’SF campus. Even before the “big football” days of the 1930’s, traditional gridiron rivalries with St. Mary’s, Santa Clara. California, and Stanford were important sources for excitement for I.SF undergraduates. There were, too, rivalries which have faded, such as those with Cogswell Polytechnical College and the San Francisco Olympic Club. Soccer games always drew attention in the fall, too—as did the underlying interest of USF men in the World Series. As the fall semester progressed, several Dons found themselves further engaged in chemistry, philosophy. English, and the efforts of such societies as the Philistorians and the College Players. By midterm time, the “Phils” had sponsored quite a few intramural forensic contests at their regular meetings, and had entered a few' intercollegiate competitions around the Bay Area. Meanwhile, the College Players’ first production of the year had gone on the boards. USF”s dramatic endeavors were heightened w ith the addition of Campion Hall in 1926. Since the Jesuits had yet to pick up an option on the property behind the building, the auditorium was built clear back to the property line. The stage remained small after the option was picked up and a classroom wing added to Campion Hall in 1931. In the years 1925-1949, the Players were sparked by James J. “Boss” Gill, whose sudden mid-production death in 1949 promoted his succession by Stu Bennett, predecessor of the present director, John J. Collins. A big source of spirit, too, was the St. John Berchmans Sanctuary Society. In the pre-television era, the “Sane” pool room beneath St. Ignatius Church was a traditional “hang-out.” Especially festive were the huge breakfasts for servers after the Christmas midnight Mass, when enormous trays of lamb chops were the order for the day. 150 . . . the froth retaliate on their charge up the hill with rotten eggs, garbage can lids, and purposeful drive.the freshman class of 1918. evidence can he found of the great diversity of age of the students; also, a generation of nonconformists and individualism uas flourishing in that day. By Christmas, fall semester examinations had already been held. The dale of change to the present schedule is uncertain, hut it had long been an established policy for exams to he over by Christmas vacation, and for the spring term to begin with the New Year. The spring semester—always a seeming repetition of previous rigors—found itself bolstered by social events even more significant than those of the previous term. Junior and Senior Proms evolved early in the history of USF—somewhere around the turn of the century. These spring dances, until recently, were traditionally formal, and have always l een held in San Francisco’s plushest hotels. Basketball—which never reached its peak until the 1950’s—was a major attraction during the winter months. When the present St. Ignatius Church was built, the old structure was converted to a gymnasium, where a pillar obscured court put visiting teams at a decided disadvantage. It wasn’t long, however, before the Dons made Ke ar Pavilion their home. Cigarette smoke nestled in the dull concrete as boisterous crowds jammed the Stanyan Street barn for hardwood crucials. USF has perennially faced such traditional rivals as the Gaels and Broncos. The 1949 team, under the tutelage of former UC coach Pete Newell, went all the way to the National Invitational Tournament in New York City, and their success was followed by the undefeated—and last—Don football team of 1951. As football died, basketball reached new prominence. St. Ignatius High School coach, Phil Woolpert, rose to USF. and subtly built a team that was to explode in 1954-55-56. The spectacular win skein of the legendary Russell-Jones teams included two consecutive NCAA crowns, and prompted many contributions towards the building of a permanent home for the Dons—Memorial Gymnasium. 151Throughout the year, staff members had been working on regular publication of the Foghorn. and also on the yearbook. The first annual publication of the Ignatian in 1911 led to The Heights. The iiiios, and the present Don. The Wasmann Biological Society held field trips, the College Players racked up more successes in Campion Hall auditorium (until recently, ealled the “USF Little Theater”), and the organization of dances and rallies was complexly considered at ASUSF Legislature meetings in the old Semeria Boom (now Seminar Room C-6 in Campion Hall). The student offices were located in Loyola Lodge, now housing administrative offices and classrooms. The year was dotted, too, with concerts, sodality retreats, and fraternity parties. In the thirties, local houses served as frat headquarters (e.g. Kappa Lambda Sigma, 2 Cole Street). Before the fifties, studying was done at home. There was, as yet, no Gleason Library. And, until 1955, LSF was entirely a “streetcar college,” until the erection of Phelan Hall. Father Dunne, president of the University, addresses a hin name rally, the brick wall, torn down in 1957. surrounded Loyola Lodge, which then housed the pulsebeat of the University. 152the arboretum in Golden Gate Park provides a background for the design of flowers signifying the centennial celebration of USF. The city celebrates with its school one hundred years of scholastic and civic achievement. The spring term was not yet complete, however, without the gala celebration known as Father President's Day. A solemn Mass in St. Ignatius Church began the clay, which was climaxed by a Faculty-Senior softball game, a free lunch, and often a dance. The enthusiasm for Father President’s Day has now degenerated to mere lip service, with only token attendance at the traditional activities. Circumstances, attitudes, and procedure change. The USF year despite these changes, remains essentially the same. Tremulous freshmen still lose their way in September. Although Father Maras chi never dreamed of validated blue books, Dons have always undergone midterm and final examinations. Dances, picnics, parties, club meetings—officially organized or unofficially spontaneous—will always be with us. And so will their result: relationships between people, which are always the most valuable, most significant, and most lasting influences in any educative process. 153THE STUDENT AND TEACHER The University is a complex of buildings, students, teachers, ideas, and emotions. Within its framework, virtually every high and low of human aspiration and intention can be found. The personality of the university is as diverse as the people which constitute it. To some, it is a friendly place, full of warmth and vitality; to others, a cold place, devoid of interest and satisfaction.Iihoto by Collins 155the Iona line at the philosophy table The heart of the University is in its pco pie, the students and teachers. The buildings and the landscape form the background of the play. In the classroom, student and teacher confront one another — one, the guide, the other, the follower. In this, the teacher not only conveys his subject matter, but, more powerfully, himself — his ideas, his emotions, his total personality. Thus in a subtle fashion, the student in being taught learns more than “merely the facts.’ He learns an attitude and a mode of expression. 156Dr. Gorman ready for actionThe student-teacher coffee night.

SPIRITUAL LIFE The founding of Saint Ignatius Church and College in 1855 well characterized the zealous missionary spirit of the Society of Jesus. Well known to the students, alumni, and friends of the University are the stories of the valiant little hand of Jesuits, headed by Father Antonio Maraschi, that established a university-to-be in a one-room school building built on a sand dune. The story of USF’s founders is a story of amazing (for the time and circumstances) progress under undoubtedly charismatic leadership. Although a formal Sodality was not founded until 1858 by Father Biglione, the enthusiastic spirit of Christianity marked the work of Collegium Sancti Ignatii from the start. In the earliest days of the College, the traditions of Christendom became the traditions of the school itself: at the outset of USF’s history, students served Mass for the Jesuit Fathers, and the spirit has been manifest throughout the University’s history by the Sanctuary Society, named for the Jesuit Saint John Berchmans, himself an acolyte. 194One of the essential components of the curriculum, the programs in philosophy and theology, was included from the outset, listed in the July, 1861, catalogue as “moral and natural philosophy.’ The inception of the College on Market Street was paralleled by the birth of the nineteenth century Scriptural revival in Europe; a renaissance in Catholic Biblical scholarship was the result, flowering in the middle twentieth century and becoming manifest in the USF theology curriculum just within the past year. The revolutions experienced in philosophy during the past century are continuing to make their mark on the Ignatian Heights campus. The disaster of 1906 destroyed the new campus of 51-year-old Saint Ignatius, and necessitated the moving of the school to the temporary “Shirt Factory” at Hayes and Shrader Streets (now the site of Saint Mary’s Hall and the Saint Mary’s hospital parking lot). The drab wooden building called the “Shirt Factory,” however, was not really “temporary,” since it failed to see its demise until replaced by the Ignatian Heights” campus at the end of the 1920’s. the interior of St. Ignatius u as ornately decorated for Christmus. 1901. it uas against this background—as ivelt as that of the "nett " Church ■that the members of the St. John Berchmans Sanctuary Society served Mass in the morning hours. 195The zeal of the Jesuits who founded the College was also evident in those who reestablished it after the cataclysm of 1906, and it was perhaps in the days of the old ‘Shirt Factory'' that the religious development of USF attained a previously unknown apex. Popular Chaplains (then called “Spiritual Fathers”) and Sanctuary Society moderators were key sources of influence in the spiritual development of the students. Teachers, too, were intimately connected with students and their spiritual lives. Father .Leo Simpson, former principal of the High School, attributes this to the fact that one teacher would instruct a given class in all subjects, and also to the smallness (250) of the student body of Saint Ignatius at that time. Father Simpson, still active, spent an afternoon in Xavier Hall musing over his tenure as moderator of the Sanctuary Society in the 1910’s. He remembers many former “Sane” members who arc now prominent laymen, including San Francisco’s City Attorney Dion Holm). Many of these are now laid to rest. Father Francis Sceliger, now curate of Saint Ignatius Church, recalls the fact that students appreciated the great privilege of belonging to the Society. “Especially,” interjected Father Simpson, “when they had to pay dues of ten cents a month!” Both Fathers remember many members who later entered the Society of Jesus — among them the late Father Edward Whelan, who was Rector when Saint Ignatius College celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in 1930, changed its name (at the insistence of the City) to the University of San Francisco, and added a new high school building at Stanyan and Turk to the Ignatian Heights campus. on Ignatian Heights, the Jesuits strove to recreate the turnof-the-century St, Ignatius Church, the cornerstone of the new building was laid in 1912. 196“ Dure" (center) welcomes Father Richard Glecson (right) and Saint Ignatius students on a pilgrimage to Rome commemorating the canonization of Jesuit Saint Aloysius Gonzaga. s Two Chaplains of the old College who stand out as highlights in USF's religious history are Fathers Morris Joy (of the 1910’s) and John Cunningham (of the 1920's). “Whatever kind of a jam a kid got into,” Father Seeliger recalls, “Father Joy was the last court of appeals.” A well-liked man whose name belied his personality. Father Joy — laid to rest at Santa Clara in 1916 — is one of the University’s best remembered Chaplains. Father Cunningham is particularly noteworthy for his work at USF, but also for his tireless efforts with Boys’ Clubs in the Santa Clara Valley, and his missionary tenure in Mexico. Of course, the religious history of USF is not without its incongruous anecdotes (such as a pilgrimage of Fathers and students to Home in the late 1.920’s, when the delegation was photographed for the 1928 Ignatian naively paying homage to dictator Benito Mussolini). Another former Chaplain well remembered by the present USF students is Father William Ryan, who was famous for his lively lectures and stimulating Retreats. The present Chaplain, Father John McIntosh, continues well Father Ryan’s counseling work with students, and is particularly active in making the greatest act of the Church — the Sacrifice of the Mass — more meaningful to the laity. Father McIntosh has gained much praise from the students and the faculty for his efforts in this regard, especially in his striving for lay participation at the daily noon Mass. 197Perhaps the one man who is singularly wise in speaking of the religious development of USF is Father Seeliger. This former Sanctuary Society moderator well remembers the precision with which acolytes executed the intricate office assigned them in the Liturgy of the Church. He looks back, too, on the USF Schola Canlorutn of the early 1950’s — a group that failed to jell as a liturgical choir because its primary aim was performance and not prayer. The sagacious curate, well acquainted with ritual of the Church, lauds the reforms brought about by Popes Pius X, Pius XII, and John XXIII — especially for their significance in increasing the role of the faithful in the Church’s'acts of worship. Religious symbolism, by its nature, rests on Tradition. Such symbolism must also by its nature, change periodically to insure its meaningfulncss. This change is now occurring in the Church, and is welcomed by all intelligent Catholics. Needless to say, Father Seeliger enthusiastically supports the full exploitation of religious symbolism for striking impact upon the laity, and looks forward to increased student participation in Mass. Me singles out for praise the student choir now singing at First Friday noon Mass, and hopes for the day when our University community of five thousand will no longer employ a paid professional choir of outsiders to sing at St. Ignatius Church. 198an open-air Pontifical Mass, celebrated by Cardinal Haves of New York, high-liuhted the Jubilee; over 30,000 attended this Muss at St, Ignatius llifth School athletic field. The religious history of the University is full of legends and anecdotes. More important, it is filled with the stories of people — administrators and teachers, and certainly students — who have in their own ways made the truths of Christianity more meaningful to the University community, and thus inevitably to themselves. A new chapter in this history is being written now. It is being written by the hierarchy of the Church ir. decrees of encyclicals promoting social consciousness, theological studies, liturgical reawakening, and general involvement of the faithful in the work of the Church. And it is the ordained responsibility of this University — as a Catholic institution of educators and students. Priests and laymen, Catholics and non-Catholics — to contribute significantly to the writing of this chapter. 199FREEDOM AND THE MAN BY REV. EUGENE The secular world is a challenge to the man who desires to live the religious life. Indeed life is a challenge to man. His existence is precarious; the problematic, the unknown confronts man at every decision, at every turn, at every choice. What is at stake in this flow of life is not just the religion of Catholic students, hut their ability to love, to live, to be. For man to be, to live, or to love, he must be free. This is written ineffably into his nature. Cod searches for the man who freely loves Cod, the Cod of Moses and Jesus searches communion with the man who gives of his inner, reflective self. Life is the quest for that freedom of encounter, of meeting, of love. What happens when at the bend of a road we suddenly come to a standstill before a bit of country-side? At the first glance, we lake it all in together, the bend of the river, the patchwork of yellow, green, and mauve fields, the white road, the grey village, with its slate reflections gathered round the spat clock-tower, the billowing of the hills, the dark tapestry of the pine trees shuddering in the wind, the shadow of clouds on the ground, their jtassage over the blue sky, the laughter of the sun all that we see in one fell swoop. We are overwhelmed by the sight, and. still, silent, we let ourselves be, as itwere, swamped by it. Then we gently escape from the enclosure of it. and start to order the various planes of the picture, pick out the detailed aspects of it, reassemble the relations between them. We try to find the most favorable focus, in short, we analyze our first sight of it. not to break it up and lose it—like those unfortunate people who cannot see the woods for the trees—but to reconstruct with precision a personal synthesis out of it. 200We have the same experience in the presence of a masterpiece of art, like, say. the Polyptych of the Adoration of the Lamb by Van Eyck. At first we are struck by the general movement and play of colours, but then we examine at leisure one or another of the panels, the technique of the design, the wealth and harmony of the tints, the fine finish of the workmanship, trie role played by each of the jigures, the lines of the composition: then, standing back again we can now with a deeper and more informed admiration contemplate the harmony of the whole ensemble to which each of the parts contribute. The progress in our understanding cf a symphony follows a similar rhythm. Carried away at first, indeed almost, submerged, by the flow of sound, we then emerge sufficiently to recognize the many tributaries and streams which pour into it: satisfied by that we can then abandon ourselves, conscious and appreciative, to the river which bears us along. 'This three-fold movement — first, a rich but confused complex, then an analysis which distinguishes the elements of it, and finally synthesis which re-groups them. is the very movement of consciousness. Man awakes each morning, besieged by thousands of sensations. Knock-knock. Mellow warmth. White. Red Warbling. A rasping taste in the gums . . . Ah, that's it! They've just banged on my door, the birds are merrily striking up ... uake up, and my perceptions se surate themselves out: My bed, how cozy it is! My room . . . must have got indigestion from supper . . . Sly clothes on the chair, the desk and this work I've got to get through today. Come on! Ugh! It's more than time, up you get! Rut how many years it takes before can learn so quickly to bring into order the formidable disarray of visual, tactile, auditive impressions . . . People sometimes imagine a baby does nothing. But he works harder than a grown-up. He is building up a representation of the world, he is educating his senses, he is learning the little game of analysis and synthesis which the intelligence performs. How many attempts he has to make, how many gropings before he can correctly localize these blobs of colour which fill his eyes, these vibrations which brush against these eardrums and which correspond to near or distant objects. And think of the help a child gets, to effect the ordering of his universe, from the ex erience which education passes on to him. Any schoolboy now knoics what men have taken centuries to discover: that the earth turns upon its axis and round the sun, that the blood circulates in the veins, that germs cause sickness, that matter can be broken up right down to the atom and beyond, etc., etc. . . . It is by this give-and-take analyses and syntheses that the collective consciousness, like the individual consciousness, progresses among human beings. Primitive man has just as rich a vision of the world as the civilized, but very much more confused. All is given to him knotted up, tangled, in a lump. It doesn't occur to him to distinguish the natural, social, psychological, spiritual, and divine forces: hence the rudimentary state of his science and technique, his superstition, his magic, etc. . . . Analysis and criticism arc the first conditions of scientific knowledge. But the danger is obvious enough. Man, drunk with his new knowledge, runs the risk of sefxirating what he ought only to distinguish. Because he has discovered the physical explanation of some phenomenon, he immediately thinks he is justified in denying God to whom his native ancestors attributed a direct and much too realistic casualty. Because his psychology can uncover subconscious motives, he at once denudes the great human feelings of all their value and reduces art, morality, and religion to the suspect designs of the lower instincts. And what is the result of this mad kind of science? Men feel themselves isolated, abandoned in a universe which is at the employ of techniques but which, deprived of all meaning, destroys them with its unhuman absurdity. So they set themselves up in defiance against each other, suspect everywhere nothing but egoism, the strategems of self-love, or a struggle for existence. Fr. Kugcnc Schallert, SJ., assistant |irofn»or of sociology, received his AB from ( on aga University in 1913. Just one year later, he was granted his MA from the same institution. In 1952 the ST I. was conferred upon him at Alma College. At present, he is a candidate for a Pit.I), from Fordham University. Fr. Schallert is a much loved and respected teacher. He has given openly of himself to the students in their need. His insight and understanding into the problems of the individual have made him much demanded, and. in many instances, by any other standard than his own. over worked. To Fr. Schallert. this little section is dedicated with respect and admiration. 201What has happened? Like the child who after having taken a watch to pieces is inca mble of putting the wheels back in their place, these half-savants have only completed the first part of their task. Their analysis, pursued for its own sake, has broken up the primitive complex but forgotten that its true role teas to prepare the way for the synthesis. This is the sad result of all the barren critiques in the order of literature or art just as much as in that of action. Everyone has met those pure pedants, those distorted philologists, who in their disserations about a poem have lost the freshness of mind needed to savour its delight. That too is the madness of a mechanism which ends by subjecting man to the instruments which in principle ought to liberate him. It is the ftar celling-out effect of scientism which is the shipwreck of civilization. Why? Because it takes the means for the end and stops half-way between the confused wealth of primitive knowledge and the ordered wealth of genuine science, because it no longer has anything at its disposal but techniques without soul and elements ill-fitted to each other. Genuine thinkers, on the other hand, never lose sight of the total perspective and the final end of their efforts. All analysis and all discovery is fitted into its place in the great edifice of knowledge. Each discipline explores its domain and respects that of its neighbors. And then science, far from isolating men and subjecting them to matter or to instincts, hymns in its own way the glory of the Creator, frees minds from lower constraints, and allows them ease of encounter, and a better informed, more delicate, more human kind of love. Let us now return from the plane of knowledge to the plane of social life. The march of progress, which is similar in many ways, carries the same risks. To the primitive complex corresponds the community, which imposes itself on us as a fact anterior to our free will. To analysis corresponds the stage of compartmentalization: man takes note of his i ersonal autonomy and it rests with him whether to break his relation with others or on the contrary to accept and deepen it. And according to which manner he chooses, he will either shut himself in the isolation of egoism anil pride, or open himself up to communion with God and men whom he can meet in faith and love. Every man finds himself from birth plunged in a milieu — family, social, linguistic, civic, intellectual, moral, artistic, religious, etc. — which he has not chosen and yet which shapes and educates. Primitive man hardly manages to disentangle himself from this community: the life of the clan is more important to him than his individual life, his very reflexes are controlled by the good of the tribe. And so the problem of individual survival preoccupies him very little, and he accepts death with much greater ease than civilized man — provided that the tribe lives on. From this group he receives its moral rules, its tabus, its religious practices, without ever questioning them. In the terminology of the sociologists, primitive man is strongly integratedhe is only one element in the whole. Less so, however, than the sheep in its flock, the. cod-fish in its shoal or the ant in the ant-heap. Among the animals of this sort reaches a perfection which is happily unknown among human groups. Even among the primitive peoples, these emerges from time to lime a personality who disputes his ancestral tradition, or who at least emancipates himself sufficiently from it to use it in the controlling of others. This is how chiefs, initiators or reformers, aristocrats, ruling classes are born. If they do not confine themselves, within an csotericism or in a class, the revolutionary privilege of the freedom which they have just discovered, the movement of emancipation, spreads among the masses. You can see it among so-called civilized peoples: the primitive community becomes sterile. Each awakens to his own value, claims his rights, proclaims his independence, takes his destiny into his own hands. Is this a good or an evil? 202It is no use recalling the enthusiastic poems of revolutionaries anti romantics acclaiming freedom, considered as a supreme good. But the application of anarchist, individualistic, or simply liberal theses usually brings such tragic consequences (lake, for instance, the ‘social problem' over which there have been such struggles for more than a century) that many Utopians dream of a return to the primitive community. The ideal of total slat ism, fascist. Nazi or Stalinist, is the hive. The bee lives from the hive and only exists for it. So. let every man dedicate himself wholly to the State and receive all from it. And to reach this end, don't let there be any talk about personal trouble. This generator of trouble can be neutralized by the intensive cultivation of those gregarious instincts which man shares with the animals. Magnificent and colossal ceremonies, for instance, are multiplied in which one feels in his very bones that he owes his stature entirely to his relationship with the rest, while their mass would swamp his own feeble existence if he tried to free himself. The community sense, solidarity, collaboration, racial ties, brute courage, the sacrifice of the individual to the group — all these are played up. And yet it is utopia none the less! You can't climb back up the stream of history. Once man has emerged from animality, he cannot return to it. No effort to restore primitive community will succeed in stamping out the virus of freedom ivhich henceforth can never be lost. But in that case perhaps freedom is genuinely a disintegrating factor? Perhaps it is for this very reason — the introduction of choice — the main obstacle to the unity willed by Christ? No. For just as analysis is indispensable in passing from the. confusion of the complex to the harmony of the syntheses, but carries with it the danger, if we stop short, of depriving us of both complex and synthesis: so freedom makes it possible for us to hiss from an imposed community to a personally chosen communion, but includes the risk of individualistic isolation which tears us from community without introducing us to communion. That is why we use the term comparlmentalization for the stage intermediate between community and communion. Among free men and in the measure of their ever precarious and embryonic freedom — relations depend upon a choice, an acceptance which must be willingly maintained but may at any moment be betrayed or revoked. Have not our developing tribesmen of the Congo reached precisely this stage in communication? Torn away from the clan they are becoming, or can become, the instigators and leaders of a new social order; but it is they too who fill the jails for crimes which they would never have committed in their native village. Once man has become rootless he has to rebuild a milieu in which his personality can expand in its function as a higher ideal set before him, and without it he becomes decadent and lets himself be carried along by the worst currents. On the individual and even the biological plane, compartmenttdization comes to the fore above all at the age of puberty. The child is in general stale of equilibrium and reasonableness: he is much more like the adult than the adolescent. But in the testing-time of adolescence everything is questioned. True, there is a charm about his generous impulses and assurances which is very lovable, but one must admit that his body and his imagination, his intelligence and his af}activity are all out of proportion. Not only the equilibrium but the natural grace of the child has disappeared. But there are few more attractive sights than the young man or the young woman, who having negotiated that passage, rediscovers the harmony of a healthy body, a cultivated mind, and a solid moral life. The difference and the progress lie in the fact that the equilibrium of the child is received from without, passive, chock-a-block with igno- the cleansing of llw hands .. .ranees anti repressions, while the adult, if he comes victorious through the crisis of puberty, achieves an active equilibrium which he has at least in part recaptured for himself. Moreover, it is obvious — and there’s no doubt about this — that the distinction between community, com[ art-mentalizution, and communion is never clear cut in actual life. We are always to some extent at all three stages at once. Hut it is necessary to mark the degrees of development in order to reveal the blossoming-out of freedom and the test it has to undergo when it has to choose between egoistic in-growing and charity...... For it is all up to us. Our choice is all-decisive — to the extent, once more, that we are free, and we become so only in the course of our earthly life. It is of the utmost importance that we should be aware of it, for morality and religion can be summed up in this choice: Whether we are going to smash the links that bind us to Cod, to others, to the world, and to our own deepest personality, by isolating ourselves in a haughty atheism, egoism, disdain, disrupting introspection, or pure distraction: or, on the other hand, whether we are going to open ourselves to universal charity, to unite ourselves freely with God in a child’s love and adoration, with our brothers in comradeship, with the universe in eager self-offering and delighted service, with our own selves in a rich recollection. Jesus Christ has told us that there is but one great commandment which sums up the whole law: “Love” — that is to say. “freely choose union, communion.” Such is, in fact, the improbable power of man, created in the image of God: that he can be, and the universe can be for him, whatever he freely decides. It depends on my attitude whether God is real to me in this world and the next, for I am free to live as an atheist and free to incur my own damnation. It depends on me whether others are brothers to me or merely indifferent, whether the universe has a splendid purpose in ministering to the union of man with God, or whether it seems to me absurd, stifling and hopeless, it depends on me whether I build for myself a sincere, loving and creative personality, or whether I let myself dry up in sterile lucidity and evil destructiveness. Once we have become free and have emerged from community, are we going to move on towards isolation or towards communion, towards egoism or towards charity? That is the problem, the only one which is set to every man and which each by his own acts has to resolve. The fanaticism of certain Hitler youth who threw themselves into the Slaughter in the wildness of the early 1910 battles resulted from their hyper-integration in community. One cannot help thinking in this connection of those animals who without reflection sacrifice themselves for the good of their species. This is a death unworthy of man. But the attitude of the man who, through egoism, becomes a deserter, is no better. He has no concern for others nor for the higher principles which are at stake in the conflict, and thinks only of his own well-being. If he uses his freedom it is in the sense of isolation. And it is he again, who, being incapable of enduring the scars of existence, commits suicide when the disillusionment is top violent, when life from his own individual point of view is ‘no longer worth living.’ The Christian in a case like this knows that, according to Christ's word and example, there is no greater love than to give one’s life for those one loves, but to give it oneself, freely, through love. The merely instinctive submission to death, the refusal of death through self-love, and suicide through egoism — all these are really criminal acts. But when generously accepted, death for others confers upon him, who throughcharity gives himself, the honor of a supreme achievement. If you want to measure the great gulf between community which precedes or excludes personal freedom and communion which follows from it. consider the difference between the gregarious madness of death for the race, and the soldier's sacrifice of his life in exposing himself to danger to save a companion or to fulfill a mission. Of course, there is a risk in the entry into communion. And it is understandable that, faced with the danger of egostic isolation and finally of eternal damnation which freedom involves, certain thetdogians. philosophers and teachers too fright and hastened to deny, to minimize, to wipe out. or to make people forget, this redoubtable prerogative. Like the totalitarian politicians, they too preferred to keep man at the stage of community. It is so much more reassuring to center the whole drama of salvation upon the mystery of God or upon lower determinisms — it is so much easier to train a young animal. . Hut the denial of human freedom, is an error condemned both by the Church and by experience. And it is equally the ruin of education. God is not so pusillanimous as these timid people, and has made man ca table of freedom: and it is good that he should have done so. For there is in fact nothing greater than love, and love is not genuine that is not free. A simple example will show us quite clearly how far more valuable, in spite of the dangers of its successes, communion is than the protraction of community. Is there any closer community than that which united a future mother to the child she bears within her? He receives all from her, their rhythms are in accord. And yet the maternal love which is preparing during the months of expectancy only breaks forth at the first sign of inde tendent existence, does not ex tand until birth, until the precise moment of the sundering of their symbiosis. Now the mother can contemplate her child in front of her. ..And there is a further advance in love when the baby seems to be responding, and finally does actually respond to the marks of affection. At each stage of its existence the child frees itself more and more from maternal tuition, but in precisely the same measure its love for its tarents grows deeper and more worthy. These are the stages: birth, severance, consciousness of self, first criticisms, then the great crisis of adolescence when all things, even family ties, are challenged, after that the emancipation of youth, the independence of maturity. And in them the mother sees the biological community which united her to her son being progressively dissolved. And it can happen in fact that all relationship between them ceases. Hut if love is renewed at each stage, if it adapts itself, if it is freely accepted, there is no more precious kind of communion than that which is established between the mother and the youth or the man. who renders back with gentle res teclfulness all the love she has showered upon the unconscious child. Similarly Cod does not merely want slavish genuflections or exaltations of the instincts. He expects free men to kneel upright before him and to offer him a filial love. Human communities educate men and so are indispensable, yet transitory, like pea sticks which hold up young plants. For man himself does not reach his true stature, docs not create himself, except by cmanci tating himself from these social groupings in so far as they are imposed on him. The error or the crime of the reactions of anti-humanists, of oppressive educators, of totalitarian regimes, is to try forcibly to beat to this lower level a man who is ca table of free choice. The artificial maintenance of community denies freedom. The willful isolationism or egoism or of pride perverts it. Only communion which directs it towards charity safeguards it, Expands it, and gives it its true meaning. 205LEADERSHIP CONTENTS: history .. government publications 208 214 .224The editor and business manager of the 1911 I {'nation, the forerunner of the Pon. The stated purpose of the Ignatian was “to be a journalistic success in every sense of the word.’ It is with this purpose that the yearbook began and it is with this purpose that it continues. 208LEADERSHIP There is an awareness at USF that there is a lack of effective student leaders: there are many organizations, each one of which has a head; there are class and student officers; there are popular individuals who have a number of followers. There are outstanding individuals in both athletics and scholastics. However, although all of these are leaders in name, there are only a few who are leaders in fact: for there is more to leadership than popularity, and more to leading than being followed. Each year brings with it new students who promise leadership; sometimes the leadership is of lasting value, with effects which are measured by constructive achievement; but too often feeble leadership is hidden behind a facade of sensationalism: too many leaders measure success by the number of entertainments provided for the group. Such entertainment, it is true, momentarily dulls the students to the fact that they are receiving bread and circuses rather than an honest and lasting leadership; but the soporific soon wears off and the students are once again complaining about the lack of leadership. The problem of successful leadership is not confined to USF, nor is it a symptom exclusively associated with the college campus. The college is an integral part of the modern world, and shares all of its virtues and vices. Its main problem is that of communication, not only communication between individuals, but, more importantly, between the individual and himself. this lowly freshman of the class of 1930 explains to the assembled audience the misery of the lowest form of colletcc life. such spirit in the initiation procedure is conspicuously absent in the majority of colleges today. 209The student at USF has been raised in this environment of anxiety: he may not be analytic in classifying its symptoms, but he is keenly aware of its hesitant and limited understanding and communication; a substitute for this hampered communication is sought, and found, in the cultivation of the self. On the university campus, the cultivation of self oftentimes takes the form of misunderstanding, which is all the more pitiful because it is thought to be understanding. The humanistic dreams of education and its function are sometimes quickly forgotten and overlooked by the student, not so much because he holds them in disrepute or contempt, but because he finds them impractical or meaningless. It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness: and for the student, perhaps, it is better to have an incorrect understanding than no understanding at all. The student sometimes understands the university as an animated machine from which he extracts facts and data: for, unfortunately, many times he all too often equates information with education, and experience with maturation. He attends the university with a mind attuned to drawing from it as much as he deems valuable. He sometimes thinks that, since the university’s relation to him is only ephemeral and passing, he is not under an obligation to reciprocate with his knowledge some of the knowledge and wisdom which he has drawn from it. In short, he sees the university solely as a tool to be used, a source of information and, perhaps enjoyment. -sir THE FOG HORN g •teStES. IINITim NTIK V.M.

When he does achieve a position of leadership, his leadership is shaded and motivated solely by the circumstances and situations which shade and motivate him: if he sees the university as a pleasant interim between childhood and manhood, his leadership is thus solely concerned with providing amusement and pleasantries. If his university tenure is motivated by a desire to accumulate information, his leadership is primarily one of communication and dissemination of understanding. To divorce the leader from his followers and their environment produces a blindness to the fact that a leader is an integral part of his society, and is neither above nor beyond it. His position of leadership does not divorce him from the common denominator of being a student. during (he “era of the rough and tumble”, school activities sometimes became noticeably spirited, this is a picture of the 1927 Initiation proceedings.

No matter the variety or type of work by which the leader expresses his hegemony, he is still and always concerned with communicating, he himself must understand. His understanding of college need not necessarily he profound or erudite, it must he true. The genus leader is here qualified hy the necessary species, student leader. He is in the college and of the college, and thus must communicate to his followers an understanding of college. Popular images and misconceptions have made the student leader a sort of superman: captain of the team, president of the organization, possessor of the outstanding grade point average. Such a person may possess the personal magnetism for attracting followers; but if he lacks a correct understanding of his school and its uniqueness, and cannot coherently communicate this understanding to others, his leadership, in spite of its sensational achievements, is only sound and fury signifying nothing. The college leader, then, is a student of directed intelligence who possesses a keen understanding of his school, and can communicate the meaning of his school to others whose incision is not so keen as his own. If there is a lack of intelligent and capable student leaders, it is because there is a lack of understanding concerning the school and its work. 212This oneness of both function and purpose was at its Golden Age during the thirties. Notable as was the quality of group leadership, it was grandly augmented by the quantity of active campus organizations. There were 4 honor societies, 11 working groups, 7 campus club, 4 fraternities, each one which had its own house. The interests of these groups embraced the broadest fields of intellectual probings. There were several literary societies, a Latin honor society, groups for students of finance, journalism, and drama; there were several debating and forensic groups; students of French, engineering, and Spanish were formed into clubs. While it is true that several of these groups still exist on campus, and that several others are lineal ancestors to present groups, it must nevertheless be also admitted that too many of the other groups have permanently vanished. The leadership of these former groups was not just concerned with grade points or potential job openings; social life was a supplement to, rather than a substitute for, the fulfillment of the organizations’ purpose. That there has been a partial decline in both individual and group leadership is manifest; but this decline cannot be entirely attributed to the students. The havoc caused by the depression and the second world war, during one year of which, 1941, USF had a total enrollment of 98 students, explains in great part the deceleration of leadership. The havoc of depression and was have faded into the solvents of time; hard and able work on the part of both student and group leaders have restored most of their failings. But, nevertheless, there still remains the problem of imperfect leadership, a problem which can only be placed at the foot of the individual student. If leadership is to become a reality, and not merely a dead horse which every succeeding year beats with its prosy laments, there must be a conscious awakening among the students of their purpose in attending school and in the meaning and function of their school. A great leader cannot be shaped in adverse circumstances in a background of mediocrity and apathy: first there must be an awakening among the students, a meaningful understanding of school, in function and spirit. When this understanding is a common reality, then there will arise the leaders. the members of the “standing committees” in the year 1929 were a distinctive group of individuals, very much resembling fhe Harvard variety, only suits with tie was recommended as apparel during that period -uhich might best be termed, "the Ivy Era." USF appears to have changed through the years. 213STUDENT GOVERNMENT after one of the most gruelling presidential elections in years Hob Crowley, the former editor of the Don, swept the campus by the largest victory margin ever recorded, the expectations of the student body concerning Hob were warranted, he has undoubtedly been one of the finest student body presidents the University has ever had. during his year as president he committed himself to the betterment of virtually every aspect of student life from the improvement of the kind and amount of food served in Phelan Hall to the promotion of the giant Bonfire Hally. Early in September the hurly-burly mobs of entering f reshmen bludgeoned the understaffed members of the Registrar’s team. All was seeming tedium and confusion, all, that is, but for one small area of the Memorial gym. At the far end of the winding line, closest to the door marked exit was a series of three tables placed side by side, behind the tables sat the men called “student leaders." There they sat, drawing from their long years of experience, discussing with the entering Freshmen their needs and likes: seeing that they should not enter the school blind. 214 jim HKc.irr Student Body Vico PresidentThe Freshman Initiation was extraordinary. The blood-thirsty members of the student court crucified Freshman after Freshman. The weeks that followed were replete with student activities, with dances, with happy hours, with discussions and lectures. The basketball season brought in a series of happy events. The Giant Bonfire rally began the season, the flames rose a full 200 feet in the air— a symbol of the zeal of our fond Alma Mater. The rallies of the season sparked a school spirit almost forgotten on the hilltop. A student beer parlor was even proposed by one over-ambitious legislative member. The Mardi Gras came and went and the year faded into another cycle of student elections, victories and defeats. Indeed, this year shall never be forgot, nor shall the president of the student body and the many fine men who worked so well with him. Truly they have earned the title of USF's best.

THE SPECIAL EVENTS COMMITTEF With a perseverance worthy of a Roman Gladiator, the S.E.C. under the guidance of Dan Ritter and Dennis Kennedy has attempted to reinstate on the university campus the active interest and participation in cultural and intellectual events which once characterized the hill top campus. Their efforts have met with more or less of success. The Committee arranged lectures, exhibits, concerts, and discussions, noted historians and virtuoso piano players took their place, side by side, in the long series of student body sponsored events. 216JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS: Martha Rachli. class representative: Rob Halls, president: Rob O'.Xtill, class representative, missing: Tom O'Connor. vice-president: James Thompson, secretary-treasurer.

STUDENT COURT At the Constitutional convention in 1932, our forefathers, intent upon creating a better life, free from the tyranny and oppression of former dictators, conceived of a new student government, the government was to he patterned after the constitution of the United States — an institution stabilized by checks and balances. The new government at first succeeded. Discipline and decision was internal to the student body. Early notices published in the Foghorn read, “Case number 732, charge: routy in class, decision: guilty, sentence: public apology before ASUSF.” The World War came—the old students enlisted. And with their going went many of the traditions of the past. The student court virtually disappeared. The regrowth of this arm of student government has been somewhat slow and laborious. I.ittle significant activity was recorded during the past decade until April of 1960 when the court made its famous series of decisions, culminating in the declaration of the action of a certain student unconstitutional. This academic year the group has continued to mature taking a more active role in the area of student discipline. It, like many other institutions, has commenced the long road back. 218 Fr.

First, let us attempt an analysis of what it is by saying what it is not. Spirit is not just a feeling that one gets when one is winning. It's easy to ‘feel good' when one has a drink in one’s hands. Spirit is not just screaming and yelling and following a leader. Spirit is not rowdiness. Spirit is not asking the question, “What’s, in it for me?" Spirit is something that goes far beyond any one of these things in particular. It is a whole complex of things. Spirit and its counterpart, commitment, is founded in care, respect, understanding, and knowledge. John Holmes in action at I SFs homecoming game with Miami. elated Dons make signs to announce USFs victory over five. 222Knowledge is primary. This stands at the basis of spirit and commitment. One must know what it is that he is “for.” For example, if one is simply “for” winning a game, then spirit melts away when first the team falls behind. Knowledge must go beyond this. One must not only know what it means to win, but also know what it means to lose. Understanding flows from knowledge. In understanding, one shares a common empathy with the University. One is able to relate the small to the big in a meaningful way. Respect flows from understanding. Respect is when one sees oneself in that which one understands. Care is the last of the components of spirit. Care is the kind of commitment that true spirit is made of. This is the kind of spirit for which we, as Dons, must strive. We have achieved it in the past in very real anti striking ways. Who shall forget the team at the St. Mary’s game We shall achieve it in the future if we but take the time to know and to care.

Hence, publications must he viewed in terms of their cfTcct. both at the moment and in the future.THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN FRANCISCO DON JUBILEE EDITION Leland I). V and end ale, editor-in-chief of the Don, graduated from St. Ignatius High School in 1957. He has undertaken the publication of the largest yearbook ever published by a western Catholic institution. For almost six months, twelve hours a day, a lone streak of neonlight could be seen emi-nating from under the door of the Don office— typewriters were typing, pencils were drawing, and editors were talking. Occasionally a visit from Fr. Keane, S.J. would put an end to the night’s activity, only to cause it to begin earlier the next day. The 1961 Don had the largest staff ever assembled on any past USF publication: during its year of existence, well over 100 people were, in some way or another, connected with the book. About half of these individuals were consistent dedicated workers. Edu ard Stephan, executive editor, whose creativity and wittiness, insight and capability made much of the ’61 Don possible. 226Eacli page of the Don was a work in itself: many thousands of pictures had to be arranged, sorted and correlated, individuals had to be interviewed, copy had to be written and proof-read and reread and sometimes redone. The end product was the largest yearbook ever produced by a Catholic college in the West, a book containing over 100,000 words of copy and over 5,000 pictures. This is your book, a book which speaks well of the nature of the University and the student body which made it possible. George Devine, managing editor, is a capable writer and a superb humorist. Much of the writing in this book teas the work oi his hands. Silvano Votto. assistant to the editor, is a remarkable writer and satirist, is linguistic machinations have been a source of constant amazement to his Don com patriots.

I, George Christopher. Mayor of the City and County of San Francisco, do hereby proclaim December 8, 1960 as “DON’S DAY” in San Francisco, and officially congratulate this fine publication for its fifty years of progress and commend the University of San Francisco for its moral, educational and cultural contributions to our City. IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the city and county of San Francisco to be affixed this second day of November. Nineteen hundred and sixty. The 1911 yearbook, the first beginning of a long tradition. 231 George Christopher MayorTHE FOGHORN SINCE 1926 Richard Lloyd Harcourt. editor of the FOGHORN, loved by his staff, revered by his readers, watched by his publishers, and feared by his opponents. With the ghosts of Halog, Finnigan, and Hinckle behind him, Foghorn editor Rich Harcourt, garbed in explorer's cap and Mexican hoots, clutching a wooden statue of Don Quixote and a Baritone ukelele, charged oft' into another year of Foghorn publication. “Foghorn Demands Valverde Explain ' the headlines blared. “Awvv," not that lousy rag again," the students complained. Kevin Owen Starr. phenomenological existentialist, entrepenieur extraordinaire in the linguistic and forensic cult, perpetrator of preposterous philologic paraphernalia — where is the life we hare lost in living?The City's Fourth Daily occasionally appeared three times a week during the first semester. Subjects covered included the following: Kessel finds famed flat-footed fly; NFCCS cons Frosh—nonexistent club; Sex—Evolution key; Legislature toasts campus beer plan; Crowley asks .legislature face-lifting; Hall addition causes 1.5 mile liquor ban; Analla: 'BSC biasedAnal la claims BSC usurps court; Harcourt 'resigns; New Law School by ’62; Yearbook broke. For the first time, the finances of the Foghorn were kept under close surveillance. Business Manager Garrett Ruhl provided a highly successful remedy to the complex and flexible financing of Foghorn publication: “If we don’t have the money, we don’t spend it,” Ruhl said. the 1925 Ignatian, which gave birth to the present FOGHORN: the editor of the ICS AT!

And though at the moment some of the overzealous members of the Foghorn staff may have seen Mr. Ruhl as something of a tyrant in his control of the purse strings, the tyranny was nevertheless a necessary one. Mr. Ruhl is to he commended for his fine work and administrative responsibility. One of the high moments in Foghorn publication was the dispute over the University of California newspaper. In a radical walkout, students at Cal published the Independent Californian. assisted ably by Foghorn editor. Rich Harcourt. As soon as Harcourt volunteered his services, the National wire-presses carried the story. Offers of assistance flowed in immediately. The University of Nebraska Sagebrush editor flew to San Francisco the next day. A mysterious call from the UCLA llruin added impetus to the movement. The controversy died with a whimper and tilings returned to “normal.” THE CITY’S 234 Dennis “CL-70” I.uceyDave “Sports” Vienna The second semester saw the introduction of a new format and a new publication schedule. More sober, yet still vital, the new format brought life to the paper. No longer the City's Fourth Daily, the Foghorn is now on a more or less regular weekly schedule adding special editions when necessary. Amid the “cooler" editions tinder this new format, the first special edition screamed, in blaring headlines: "Publications Censure Hecht." The students reacted traditionally: “Aww, not that lousy rag again.’ Ever defiant, ever defending the truth as it is seen by them, ever holding to the motto: “All the news that fits, we print." The Foghorn goes on, and the Don says, “Well done.” FOURTH DAILY Paco “Henna" Pico 'hooray for Burlingame!" 235Vivacious Kevin Starr, editor-in-chief of the Gaviota, catifiht in a busy moment by a tireless Don photographer. THE GAVIOTA MEANING "SEAGULL” IN SPANISH The Gaviota, U.S.F.’s pulp magazine, censured by Father Coleman and promulgated by Arnie’s Press on Ocean Avenue, is this institution's answer to Yale's Crosscurrents and Ford ham’s Thought. It's fifty or so pages, its budget of $600.00, and its title of Seagull (from the Spanish), combine to make it a magazine magnanimously wealthy in tid-bits from the literary art.This year’s adventure consisted of some notable writings by Kennedy, Votto, Williams, and Powers. This impressive array managed to keep the bulk of their writings on the First level of beauty, thus insuring edification as well as aesthetic communication. The publication of a literary magazine, is, perhaps sometimes underrated. The editor of such a publication not only has the duty of gathering writing from every area, nook and crook, within the University, but further., he must see that the work which he gathers is of high quality—representative of a Catholic institution. Add to this hours of editing and layout, proof reading and copy changes, and one has no mean accomplishment. The Don congratulates its sister-in-arms.

Kappa Lambda Sigma, the university's oldest fraternity, met on Sunday afternoons after the late Mass to discuss the works of Byron, Shelly and Keats. Fr. Feely, S.J. was the moderator. ORGANIZATIONS “All colleges point with pride to their various societies; the alumni glory in the remembrance of their part in student institutions in bygone days; and the present students rejoice in the opportunities they now afford . . . Class work, whether dispensed in lectures or otherwise is bound to grow monotonous, and here the Societies fill an important part by adding interest to otherwise arduous labors. The number of organizations and the diversity of their objects afford to every scholar an opportunity to move in a circle of enthusiast of his own particular bent.” Equally applicable today are those words which appeared in the 1911 Ignatian, the University’s first annual. The purpose of any college organization has remained unchanged: to supplement the rigors of education with extra-curricular activity, by uniting youths seeking a common diversion. Knowledge alone fails to educate the man; but, knowledge immersed in activity exercising bis body, entertaining his imagination, and stimulating his reason will educate the man — the entire man. Societies, then, are an integral part of the college education. Man by nature prides himself on heritage: that his race is English, French, or Spanish, that his ancestors were nobility, colonists or pioneers. Man always reflects with admiration on his past generations. Like family heritage, university heritage may imbue its students with the same devotion. And old St. Ignatius College was an institution steeped in heritage. Unlike some institutions which are delivered in comfort, St. Ignatius was born and reared by its founders’ hard determination. Three 240quarters of a century were to elapse before the college found a permanent home. And though hardship and want characterized the years, the college was never without activity—without spirit. The old societies reflected their alma mater’s soul. The activities were few, hut they were meaningful endeavors. They strove to supplement the classroom—to develop the entire man—not just to present their members a “good time”! The Sodality of the Immaculate Conception of 1910 displayed the pervading spirit. As its design showed, the Sodality sought “the emitting to its members the inner satisfaction of clear conscience that all knowledge of the arts and science could not possibly bestow.” Love of God and His Church was not merely an express commitment, it was also ardent acceptance. The Loyola Science Academy, organized “to foster a deeper interest in scientific study and research among its members by having them prepare illustrated lectures on physics and on the lives of physicists” further testifies to the regnant spirit in the college. Activities were then meaningful. With the thirty’s the college saw change. It moved from the shirt factory to the heights, and became established with Campion Hall’s construction. And with the hall’s emergence, permanent expansion and increased growth began. St. Ignatius also saw a new christening. On occasion of the institution’s Diamond Jubilee the school became the University of San Francisco. Of greater importance, the institution was to see the fullest development of its societies. Campion Hall was more than a building, it was a symbol—the symbol of determination. Born choking in the sand dunes, ravaged by an earthquake, humiliated in the shirt factory, the University endured all with patience. But with rugged perseverance and unrelenting purpose the institution lived to forge a new beginning, a new foundation—Campion Hall. With the new beginning a hearty, but sincere enthusiasm burst on campus. The University quaked with activity. the Sojihomore court in 1927. wayfaring Freshmen were tried within the confines of an antique Masonic mosque. St. Ignatius Church can be seen in the background. 241Those years saw the freshmen clowning on Market Street during their initiation. And saw their admittance as college men with a smoker that was a smoker (cigars, at that); the years also witnessed rampant enthusiasm for athletics (from the 1932 Annual: “The Santa Clara goalposts were almost down, hut the coppy chaps came a-prancing; it was the first victory over the Farmers in six years.’ ) And those years saw new campus organizations mushroom. The old societies which had become traditional—the Sodality, the Sanctuary Society, the Block Club, and Kappa Lambda Sigma—were now being rivaled: new organizations stampeded forth. A Biological-Chemical Society (affectionately termed the Bio-Chem arose to replace the defunct Loyola Science Academy, and the Glee Club was re-organized to promote “collegiate vocal activities.” A frolicking Teutonic Club, of which little is known, boasted a frothing mug on its crest (indicative of a motto?), and a Chess Club gambited forth. A Gavel Society, the freshmen debating group, was formed by enthusiastic mellow-toned youths. The Latin scholars became the Horatians, and the stage hands organized the Arch and Arc. This eager group went as far as building a club-room above the auditorium stage, away from the questing eyes of Administration and fellow students The ethnic minded banded into two clubs. Those “to articulate the melodious language of Cervantes” rallied into the Don Quixote Club, and those to honor the tricolor of Napoleon marched into the La Circle Club. The Skull and Sledge, the University’s only esoteric group, crept into the insti- the 1032 University Concert Orchestra: monthly recitals were scheduled, attended by groups of over 500. this was USF's “gold-en era" when as much sutumn teas given student activities as to basketball. 242[ the "golden" College Band literally played to audiences of 50.000. a quote from the 1912 Annual tells its own story: “among the welt received events is remembered the ensemble combination of the band and the Glee Club at the Santa Clara vs. USF football contest, both uniformed organizations appeared in marching order, and when the individual rooting sections were reached, the songs of each college were sung by the club. each member equipped with small megaphones, with the band in accom paniment." tulion to promote “the Ignatian Ideal” And for editors, associate editors, and managers of the various publications the Pipe and Pen Society dribbled forth. Finally, for the more adventurous scholars, the off-campus fraternities staggered into college life. For the students united by common love in commerce and finance, Tau Delta Beta appeared: for the enthusiastic freshmen seeking greater enlightenment in literature. Pi Delta Pi was formed; for the pre-engineering students. Sigma Iota Epsilon was constructed; and for the sub-conscious minded psychology students, Psi Chi clouded in. But whatever the fraternity, one character marked them all—spirit. Maybe too much spirit! For in 1932 a “sorely needed Interfraternity Council was formed to settle differences among the frats, and to draw up a common code regulating the eligibility of pledges, the use of liquor, and the chaperoning at house parties.” But as time has shown, the fraternities were to run aground with administration; about 1936 the frats were requested to move on campus. This era of enthusiasm was the work of one man, the Rev. Hubert J. Flynn, S.J. With the new beginning in Campion Hall, this man of foresight recognized the necessity of campus societies. It was his efforts of encouraging and prompting the students into group activity, that the societies reached their unparalleled height. But with the Thirty's closing, that picture vanished.“Pearl Harbor Bombed,” “War Declared,” and a nation was thrust into a world conflict during the early Forty’s. The war affected every institution, every home, and every individual. It affected the University. Enrollment dropped from 900 to 133; campus organizations ceased to exist. With victory achieved, the men of war placed aside the tools of war and returned home. A weary and serious generation filed to fill the University’s vacancies. Painfully the re-establishment of campus societies came. But in re-establishment, a new change gripped those musty organizations. This change was intensified with the emerging Fifty’s. The Pageant of Youth presented in 1924 by St. Ignatius Colleee played before an audience of over 30.000 spectators. An excerpt from the 1925 Ignatian (the yearbook) reads, “The cast of approximately 1 000 was chosen from practically every parochial school in the city ... To accommodate the enormous number of participants, a special stage 120 feet wide with a depth of 50 feet, the largest ever built in the Civic Auditorium, was constructed. To give a stage opening to frame the dancing groups and comprehend the magnitude of the lavish scenes and lighting effects. the arch was made 70 feet wide and 50 feet high. These were obviously the days before television. 244James J. Gill, known as lln to thousands of USF graduates, taught philosophy and public speaking on the hilltop for 21 years, he moderated the college players from 1928 until he died in 1919. James Gill uas more than a teacher and director, however, he teas the friend and father of those who asked his help. A spirit of indifference and false enthusiasm (a rowdiness) permeated many societies. They confused meaningless action with meaningful activity, and the old desire of a sincere accomplishment was gone. A complacent attitude stamped their creeds. The University passed through a golden age of student activity. At that time “school-centered” achievement oriented organizations were at their height. USF was known all over the J est Coast as outstanding in debating, in oratory, in academics, and drama. The war and its aftermath ushered in a new era. Activities became entertainments. Dances were substituted for thought. USF is traveling the long road hack—the quantity and quality of organizations is rising. Yet the road shall be difficult. Hopefully, we shall be the rising tide of the new generation, a generation imbued with commitment, creativity, and courage. 245FRATERNITIES Fellowships of varied purposes, interests and functions, fraternities form a major part of the society encountered in a university. Communication and a sense of union are both the cause and effect of the spirit which marks the fraternity off from the rest of campus organizations. Usually transcending a particular interest, fraternities seek what man has always sought in his desire to relate with other men — brotherhood.FRONT ROW, left to right: Father Raul Harney, S.J., Robert Croulcy, Thontus Valverde.

This society—later renamed Alpha Sigma Nu—remained a local organization until 1921, when it became a national honorary fraternity for men in Jesuit colleges and universities throughout the United States. USF’s chapter of Alpha Sigma Nu was chartered on December 17, 1941. Members are senior students who have distinguished themselves for scholarship, loyalty, and service. The existing membership nominates successors, and the candidates’ names are sent for approval to the Deans of the colleges and to Father President. ASN’s function is not only to honor achievement, but to foster it. Consequently, the members meet often with the members of the Administration to confer on several topics vitally affecting the University. The close relationship between Alpha Sigma Nu and the administration can be seen in the fact that the fraternity’s faculty moderator is Academic Vice-President Father Paul Harney, S.J. Members of Alpha Sigma Nu also aid the Administration in working closely with the Ofiice of Admissions, in helping to execute such functions as High School Senior Day, College Hoard Examinations, and similar aspects of academic endeavor. 248I FRO.

GAMMA PHI EPSILON Gamma Pi Epsilon has often been called the female counterpart to Alpha Sigma Nu. This honorary sorority for women in Jesuit institutions was founded at Marquette University in 1925. Since then, it has become a national sorority, now encompassing L’SF and eight other co-educational Jesuit universities. Academic achievement and participation in extra-curricular activities are criteria for inclusion in the select membership of Gamma Pi Epsilon; its members are chosen from senior i students in the School of Nursing on the basis of accomplishment. Members of Gamma Pi Epsilon work closely with University Administrtaion in trying to engender scholarship and leadership. The focal point of these efforts is the School of Nursing. t t 249This literary honor society was established in September, 1871, and reorganized in December, 1926. The end and aim of the fraternity, as set forth in its constitution, is “to foster the study and thorough treatment of the outstanding figures in modern thought and literature.” Although most members of Kappa Lambda Sigma are students in English, other members of the College of Liberal Arts are also eligible for selection. Membership in Kappa Lambda Sigma has dwindled recently, due primarily to lack of activities and of student interest. The fraternity is, however, undergoing a revitalizing process. One planned function of KLS is the publication, next year, of a quarterly magazine containing essays, poetry, and fiction works from students. KAPPA LAMBDA SIGMA the nu mbers .

ALPHA DELTA GAMMA In an attempt to recreate the atmosphere of nineteenth-century Heidelberg, Alpha Delta Gamma was spawned. Although crested blazers and ornate beer mugs have been superseded by MacGregor jackets and six-packs, a semblance of college-boy spirit still makes itself seen and heard on and off the USF campus. AI)G is not solely a USF fraternity. The group here is hut a chapter of Alpha Delta Gamma, a national social fraternity in Catholic colleges. Just how a chapter of ADG appeared on the Hilltop campus is unknown. One theory is that—somewhere during the maze of the postwar forties and the “fabulous fifties'"—a horn-rimmed, crew-cut face jutted out of the basement men's room and said, “Gee. they got fraternities at big colleges but we ain't got none here!" 252And so Alpha Delta Gamma has made itself a known force on the campus. Its primary contribution is the annual post-Christmas publication of THE WIRE, a directory listing the addresses and telephone numbers of all ASl SF members. ADG is one of the most famous groups on campus: they make their presence obvious in their support of games, mixers, and similar events. Although Alpha Delta Gamma has yet to erect a fiat house, Phelan Hall serves as temporary headquarters. at the MarJi Grus the ADG booth teas undoubtedly one of the most impular.It is only fitting that Business Administration students have their own fraternity. Since “biz-add" majors seem to share a common ideology, a common aspiration and a common culture, the existing loyalties between students in this state has been welded into Delta Sigma Pi, an international fraternity of business students. USF’s chapter of Delta Sigma Pi is a prominent group, both politically and socially. Its members compromise the bulk of that august protective organization, the Board of Student Control, as well as of the ASCSF Legislature. Delta Sig members often broaden themselves by being equally active in other campus groups, such as the Marketing Club and the Young Democrats. Many patriotic members also belong to the Pershing Rifles and the Scabbard and Blade. DELTA SIGMA PI HiO. T ROW . left to ri ht: Roger I.tike. In Martinez.

It is actually the only social sorority on the campus, and all its members are students in the USF School of Nursing—many of whom reside at St. Mary’s Hall. President Diane Ginotti straight-facedly says that the three gammas, transliterated to “G"s, stand for “goodness, graciousness, and generosity.” Freshman nursing students pledging Tri Gamma undergo an initiation which involves the wearing of odd costumes on campus and the execution of cumbersome tasks, such as having male students sign plastic bags (goodness gracious!). After the pledging period neophytes are accepted on a probationary status, pending achievement of a 2.5 average. 256 Tri Gamma members are socially active, and sponsor one or two dances a year, including one at the end of the pledge week. Many members of Tri Gamma also belong to the Glee Club, and other campus organizations. Indeed, the young ladies of this sorority are sincerely endeavoring to rid the campus of ghoulishness, grouchiness, and grime. These pictures acre taken in St. Mary's Hall at the Gamma Pi Epsilon student-teacher coffee, many of the Tri Gamma girls eventually go on to be appointed members of this fine organization, picture left below is Sister Mary Rosalia. Sister Rosalia is very much loted by those who know her. although she is in her 80s. she has the spirit and cheerfulness of a teen, one of her lesser known good works is to faithfully send sandwiches and cake every night to the working nurses at St. Mary’s hospital. 257CULTURAL ACTIVITIES These activities are marked by one element, the spirit of production. Whether in the staging of a play, the performance of a musical work, or the activities of debating — all have in common that element of originality, that personal touch which, combined with technical perfection makes a cultural activity successful.259One of the chief considerations in Jesuit education is public speaking. As a result, the Philhistorians Debating Society was one of the first clubs formed at St. Ignatius College. Since the founding of the Philhistorians in 1862, the group has emphasized clear, concise reasoning and intelligible effective presentation. Debating has long been the Philhistorians’ major activity. But, as college speech activities have expanded, many individual events (such as original oratory, dramatic interpretation, etc.) have been added to the plethora of forensic tournaments at which the Philhistorians represent USF each year. Although the “Phils” concentrate on tournaments in California, they also trek to competitions in the Pacific Northwest and our newest state, Hawaii. PHILHISTORIANS nt( .

Since this change, however, the “Phils’’ are now one of the more prominent social groups on campus. The members of the Philhistorians—under the faculty moderator Father James Dempsey, S.J.—spend each Monday evening in the Maraschi Room practicing and preparing for intercollegiate competition in speech. This group also sponsors intramural forensic contests, such as the Father Cody Oratorical Contest and the Father Flaherty Debate. Members of the Philhistorians contribute much of their time as judges and officials for high school speech tournaments in the Bay Area. The activities of the group are coordinated by President Bob O'Neill. 261COLLEGE PLAYERS In June of 1363, Robert E. Lee led the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia through Pennsylvania to a date with destiny at a little town called Gettysburg. On the 30th day of June in that year. San Francisco’s oldest amateur theatre group, the College Players of the University of San Francisco gave its first performance. USF was called St. Ignatius College then, and the campus was located on Market Street, on the site of the present day Emporium Department Store. The play, a two-act epic called “Joseph and Mis Brethren” was presented as a part of the college graduation exercises. Father Joseph W. Riordan, S.J., who wrote an official history of the school on the 50th anniversary of its founding in 1905, had this to say about the players’ pioneer effort: “The naturalness of tone and gesture and the depth and sincerity of feeling displayed by the young actors, made a marked impression on the audience, which, while hoping much, was not prepared for what it witnessed.” St. Ignatius College Players presented a dramatic offering every year in the late spring for many years. As the college approached its golden anniversary in 1905, productions became more frequent. In 1904-5 season, two operettas, a minstrel show, Shakespeare’s “Henry V,” and the “Sibyl’s Prophesy” were presented in the college hall. Reviews in the San Francisco dailies were all highly satisfactory. 262 vehement Stephan Douglas shouts for slate’ rights in the Rivalry.The plays were performed that season as a pari of a civic celebration in honor of the 50th anniversary of the college, then located on Van Ness Avenue near the City Hall, in a spacious set of buildings referred to in contemporary accounts as a “Model of excellence ’ The earthquake and fire of 1906 destroyed the college buildings and put something of a crimp in the theatrical activities of its students. Plays were presented for some years in an old church building located near Golden Gate Park that served as the combination gymnasium and theater. In 1928. James J. Gill—who was affectionately called “Boss” Gill by his students— became director of dramatics at the college. Gill was one of the best loved professors at the institution and his 21-year reign as head man of the school's drama department covered the years when the school's name was changed to the University, of San Francisco, the lean depression days, the years during the second world war when enrollment dwindled to almost nothing, to the post-war years, when USF was jam-packed with returning veterans. Gill was a hard taskmaster with exacting standards; a man who drove his actors hard— and yet a man with a heart of gold. His one big weak spot: you never called his players “amateurs.” He had professional standards and expected work on a professional level.

McGettigan. The next year. Gill’s players staged “Richelieu” at the Tivoli, a theater full of memories for San Francisco theater goers. The San. Francisco critics hailed Gill’s production. Said one newspaper: “USF’s players do a professional job.” and another added: “One of the best student productions imaginable.” In 1940, after directing a cast of several thousand in the pageant celebration the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, Gill put on “Cyrano de Bergerac,” and the reviewers called it “a sparkling show piece.” One of the actors Gill directed in the war years, Richard Egan, went on to make a fine name for himself in Hollywood. What was to be his finest production, the new play, “Command Decision,” was scheduled for the Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium in the Civic Center in 1949. Rehearsals began. Then one Sunday morning, as the cast gathered for a run-through, came the stunning news: “Boss” Gill had died of a heart attack the night before. Still, the show' had to go on. Stuart G. Bennett, a friend of Gill’s and an excellent director in his own right, replaced Gill and the show opened on schedule. The papers said “Command Decision” was “professional.” Gill would have liked that. 264 Romeo and Juliet (not in that order) made a handsome couple in Shakespeare’s Classic Play.Bennett, who remained at USF for ten years, did some notable work himself, including a fine performance of “Darkness at Noon” that won raves from San Francisco critics. Under Bennett the College Players put on four shows a year and did some pioneer work in television. The Bennett-staged “You Are the Jury” series, using USF actors and law students, was a prototype for several of the current legal drama shows on TV today. Bennett resigned in 1959, to be replaced by one of his former students, John J. Collins, a young man who had made quite a mark for himself. Last season, Collins’ players staged the West Coast Premiere" of “The Power and the Glory.” USF’s “The Rivalry” and “Brigadoon” which were also presented earlier this season drew lavish praise from the local press. USF’s next production, “Romeo and Juliet,” was presented on the first two weekends in March, 1961, at the USF Little Theater. The capacity audience viewed a brilliantly moving recital of Shakespeare's tragic poetry. The season terminated with a witty showing of the comedy. “Stalin Allee.” COLLEGE PLAYERS John J.

GLEE CLUB I'he I SF Glee Club is an accomplished musical group, as their concerts on and off campus testify. The progress of the club rests solely on one practice a week under director Mr. Fred Pratt. The Glee Club, although handicapped by inadequate finances, is fast developing into a competent choral group. Socially, the Glee Club might ! e said to he second to none. The year is liberally sprinkled with parties, banquets, and informal get-togethers for the members. One of the largest organizations on campus, the Glee Club counts many nursing students among its m -mbership. Probably the most significant milestone in the brief history of the club was the presentation of "Briga-doon,” a smash-hit musical produced in conjunction with the College Players and under the direction of Mr. John Collins and Mr. Pratt. The record overflow crowds at "Brigadoon” indicate good Iio|h- for a similar success next year. The grow th of the USF Glee Club is largely due to the generous efforts of such members as President Cliff Hughes and past-Presidcnt Bob Pope, two of the best musicians the University has seen in recent years. 266FRONT ROUP, left to riftht: Chuck Fonucci.

Huge whitc-shirted rooting sections executed complex, dazzling card tricks, and snappy marching hands covered the field at halftime. USF was no exception. The football era on the Hilltop included a 10-piece marching band which donned bright uniforms and performed precise drills at all the Dons' football games. However, this sharp outfit was not the only orchestral group on campus. The University also had a concert orchestra during the thirties, which entertained regularly in recitals and symphony presentations for the general public as well as for the student body. These groups were the forerunners of the USF Pep Band, an informal group which blasts forth at most of the Dons basketball encounters. The Pep Band, under the hustling leadership of Pete Bloom, accomplishes quite a bit. considering their limited practice time (once a week with director. Mr. Fred Pratt t. In this time of relative de-emphasis on sports. th«- Pep Band serves as a reminder that the festivities of college athletics have not vanished. This snappy little group also signifies some interest in music within the University community, and perhaps prefigures more prosperous days to come. 'Row. row. row your I mat . . .’ 267SOCIETIES Brought into being for many reasons, societies, clubs and organizations are a manifestation of the many sides of a student's life. Too often, usually through unfamiliarity, the student is thought of as a classroom cog only. But even a casual examination of the activities in which students participate will indicate that there is much more. It is his participation in these extra activities which will indicate his willingness to participate in life.The Rio-Chem Socifly is an organization which united all tSF students interested in the further study of the natural sciences. Although this organization was formally organized in 1923, it was not the first such clul on campus. As fur hack as 1909 there existed on campus a scientific group, the “Loyola Science Academy." This academy grew on a USF which was one of the finest scientific institutions on the West Const. l.SF was one of the only three college in America to possess an ounce of radium; it also had the first electric power plant and the first telegraph set in San Francisco. “The Loyola Science Academy” was serious of purpose: it admitted only upper di ision students, and sponsored lectures and exhibits on the most advanced scientific ideas of the day. Although this academy was disbanded several decades later, its work of scientific advancement did not cease; for a successor soon took over its work. The original goals of the Rio-Chem were triple: to acquaint its members with the chief men of science and their achievements: to provide pre-med students with an organized study and discussion group; and to provide public meetings and lectures at which prominent scientists discussed scientific ideas of interest to the student. In 1917. due to an unprecedented number of requests for admission into the club, a complete reorganization was undertaken, under the leadership of I)r. Gorman, and the then club president F.dward Giglieri. Its pristine scientific goals are still pursued with the zeal of yore; however, the young scientists of today are learning to divide their time between the micro- and the macro-cosm. so that the Rio-Chem club is for them a vehicle for both learning and enjoyment. This combination of enjoyment and study is best seen in the club's anthropological meeting on the last day of October. Ktlinic dancing is combined with a profound study ami revival of some of the ancient and mysterious customs of this da . All branches of science are keenly interested in this work: botanists congregate around cttcnrbila ftepo; chemists observe mains sylvestris in barrels of hydrogen hydroxide; physicists study the velocity of besoms; biologists observe the effects of CjHaOH. It is in activities such as this by which the Rio-Chem Club enlivens the mind and delights the heart, thus helping to educate the whole man. BIO-CHEM CLUB FROXT ROW. Iffi in right: Leo Pasco.

By 1908 this group had so grown that it became one of the chief donors in the financing of the construction of the gymnasium. This gymnasium was so complete that it even contained an indoor running track. The present Block Club was already organized in 1925 and was later reorganized in 1955. Membership in this hylozoic organization is limited to those athletes who have won the Block SF award for their outstanding playing in intercollegiate sports. The club purposefully unites the athletes in an organization which encourages a high standard of athletic conduct, and promotes loyalty to the university and to the ideals of sport. Its membership has included such distinguished athletes ns Harry Likas, who won the national intercollegiate singles championship; members of the N.l.T. team: and such greats as Bill Bussell. K.C. Jones, Gene Brown. Mike Farmer, and John Cunningham. The club also has its lighter side, sponsoring an informal campus dance, and supervising Spartan freshman initiations. Its members facilitate seating at ball games and run tournaments ami intramural programs. They sponsor after game mixers, an athletic award dinner and smoker, ami intra-club games. It is most obvious that so harmonious and well-balanced a program cannot but succeed in producing mens smut in corporc sano. BLOCK CLUB T, ROtt, left to Hnh Joy, c- n,m Smith, tiny Uare.

HISPANIC AMERICAN CLUB Wandering through the Hacienda Area, the casual visitor on campus is likely to hear the dulcet Castillian of Lope de Vega, and Calderon de la Barca; he might think that La Vida es Sue no; but he quickly discovers that he is only observing another facet of El Gran Teatro del Mundo, USF’s Hispanic American Club. Il erian interests on campus extend back to 1928; at that time, inspired by the great hero of Cervantes (pronounced Thervantes), students concerned with things Spanish founded the Don Quixote Club. The club was composed primarily of students of the Spanish language, who both improved their fluency and obtained a better understanding of Spain and its peoples. In 1917, under its eminent moderator, El Senor Doctor Sandri, the club published a much-praised Spanish language newspaper. The present Hispanic American Club, chartered in 1951, continues to probe Spanish culture of El Siglo de Oro; but its more pressing concern is an increase of mutual understanding between the United States and all of the Spanish-speaking countries. This is accomplished by a clarification of the internal problems of Latin America and their possible solutions. The lighter side of the club is seen in its social activities, such things as fiestas, guitar serenades by moonlight. and cracking the pinata. Thus revealing both the sunlight and shadow of Spanish lands, the club succeeds in communicating to America the meaning of Spain. 272ROW . left t» right Rei. John H. MeCloin, S.J.

HISTORICAL SOCIETY Second thoughts w ill prove true the hypothesis that the purpose oi college education is the establishment of meaningful communication between the student and the world of realitv. However, because of the physical limitations imposed by a limited campus, and the necessity of the student's concentrating his energy on the specialized stiuly of his major subject, communication between the student and the world is limited in both extension and depth. The most obvious manifestation of this imperfect communication an imperfect communication which encompasses every student and his major subject - is the phenomenon of communication's being understood in terms of as imiliation of prescribed textbooks and their facts. Although a textbook can communicate the raw matter of learning, it cannot easily infuse the facts with an immanent, even tangible reality. In this matter of establishing communication, the students of history here at USF are singularly fortunate for they are able to achieve a tangible and immanent grasp of the meaning of history. The I'SF Historical Society, founded in 1952. is under the direction of the bancroftian Father John McGloin. S.J. Its purpose is the increase among the students of an interest in history. This interest is fostered by motion pictures and lectures by eminent historians. But, successful as these activities are in communicating the meaning of history, they still have an impersonal quality to them: they arc about history, but they are not history. The famous field trips of the historical society to places noted in California history are the method by which history is personalized and made real. Many such trips arc taken to the gold country and to the old California Missions. This realization of local history is the incentive method by which the student learns to combine historical facts with tangible historicity. Thus the Historical Society succeeds ill aiding its members in achieving a meaningful communication with history. Ab uno disce ornnes. 273The International Relations Club (IRC) is an organization formed to channel undirected student interest in world aiTairs into a positive criticism and meaningful understanding of the world political scene. Moderated by Dr. Donald Brandon of the political science department, it is a descendant of the Cosmopolitan Club, a USF organization founded in 1931 to foster a meaningful interest in world affairs. The IRC is no mere isolated campus group; rather, by virtue of its membership in both the National and State Federation of International Relations, and in the Greater Understanding Among Nations Association, it is a participant in both state and national organizations. The special field of interest of the USF IRC is a probing study of the relation between current domestic and foreign problems. The particular interest of this year’s studies has been the work of the United Nations, which interest was realized by the USF IRC’s participating in the yearly Model United Nations, a function which last year attracted 800 college students from 80 western universities. More local activities have included campus lectures by renowned academicians, diplomats, and journalists, who have given incisive insights into c urrent political topics and issues. A most notable achievement was the joint sponsorship by the IRC and the Historical Society of lectures by the distinguished American historian, Dr. John I). Hicks. There have also been student discussions of contemporary politics, and films about modern Japan, and about the activities of the United Nations. In 1960, the IRC was voted “most active club on campus.” Si vis monumentum, circumspicc. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB FRONT ROW, left to right: James Ventura, Ted Stahr, Ralph Ukishima.

Recently deciphered neolithic scrawls of the upper Soultrian epoch reveal that there lived at that time in Gaul a used bison and mastodon merchant whose sales were in a period of recession. In an attempt to increase his profits, he commissioned cor tain itinerant daubers to decorate his business cave at Lascaux with attractive and compelling paintings of his wares. The maneuver proved a phenomenal success. He vended so many bulls, that he used an image of that viviparous quadruped as an indication of booming busi ness; conversely, since he sold only a few bears, he used them as a symbol for bad business. This was the origin of business administration and marketing, and ultimately the origin of the USF Marketing Club. The Marketing Club is in no way unworthy of its groat Cro-Magnon ancestors. It is recognized as a collegiate chapter of the American Marketing Association; it offers its members the opportunity to learn from solvent business men how to sell for the most what they buy for tin- least, and how to make use of advertisements which will appeal to the sublimated Freudian urges of the potential customer. The success of this year's club is due in great part to its unassuming yet dynamic president. Bob Marchant, who has increased lectures in both quantity and quality, and who has communicated to even the non-business majors the significance and importance of the club.

MATH CLUB It is axiomatic that, at a I'Diversity at which there is so infinite an interest in the numbers game, there should be an organization to faclof and simplify this quadratic concern, so as to quickly solve the unknown components of this q. e. d. The theory of such an organization was first proposed on campus in the year 1961 x(in which case x 12). The limits of its infinite series have, even at this early date, been partially established by research into such non-Euclidean propositions as the symbolic logic of 2 plus 2. and the sum of all the zeros is infinity. But. on the other band, classical mathematics have not been overlooked in this flurry of modernism. On any weekend, members of the Math Club can be found constructing triangles on the sand at Ocean Beach, or meditating on the postulate, does gamma gamma gamma equal an irrational equation. From such humble beginnings, the club members advance to do post-graduate work on the odds of Bay Meadows. Faculty and .guest speakers often lecture before the club on the latest trends in mathematics: these lectures are at tunes supplemented by talks by the members themselves, who reinterpret from a modern view aspects of classical mathematics. Field trips reveal the progressive use of mathematics in science and industry. The club also combines with the math clubs of San Francisco College for Women. Holy Name College in Oakland, and Notre Dame in Belmont, to integrate usefully the probability theories of these calculating ladies. Thus, by advanced studies, lectures, field trips, and scientific conferences, the USF Math Club helps the incipient arithmetician in his work of factoring, cancelling, and solving the world. 276FRO.XT ROU . left to right: Chuck Fannucci.

PROPELLER CLUB The Propeller Club at USF, one of the 129 ports of the Propeller Club of the United States, was founded in 1951, for the purpose of enabling interested students in this port city of San Francisco to increase their knowledge of the American Merchant Marine and of maritime activities related to it. by establishing for them contact with a national maritime organization. The avowed purpose of this organization is the promotion, furtherance, and support of the American Merchant Marine, so that it will be adequate to meet the requirements of national s« eurity and the welfare of the United States. This goal is achieved by imparting to the meml ers the importance and significance of the Merchant Marine in the American Gestalt. s| ecifically in its dealings with world commerce and international business. The methods by which this idea is communicated are trips of inspection and study to shipyards, terminals, merchant vessels, lectures bv authorities in this field, and constructive research problems undertaken by the members themselves. The members are given an opportunity to demonstrate not only what they have learned, but also their own constructive criticism, by participating in the annual essay contest which the national club sponsors each year. Social life is not completely overlooked by these ancient mariners; for the Senior Port arranges dinner meetings with the Student Port here at L'SF. At these functions, both senior and junior port learn about the achievements and accomplishments of the other. In its concentrated and probing study of the maritime industries, the Profiler Club does its members the double benefit of not only imparting to them clear and precise information concerning the maritime, but also of giving them valuable information and as istance in deciding and preparing for their career in life. 277The Pershing Rifles is certainly the most admired and moralizing organization on campus. Unlike the many other campus organizations, which, while seeming to exist for only the most noble and edifying of reasons, are in reality social groups formed solely for the fanciful practice of the members' whims and piccadillocs. the Pershing Rifles has never once, since its organization in 1950. wandered in the least from the sterling and splendid ideals of its revered founder. General Blackjack. Here are his sentiments, expressed in the finest 22-5 language: “The purpose of the Pershing Rifles is the fostering of a spirit of friendship ami cooperation among men in the military departments, and the maintenance of a highly efficient drill company." The PR group on this campus has been dogmatically zealous in achieving the inspiring goals of its founder. Their school-boy zeal, which might lead to little mischiefs were it unguided, is lovingly and tenderly shaped and guided by the self-sacrificing devotion of its beloved moderator, whose every word and council is religiously followed and imitated by his eager tyroes.

It is true. alas, that certain campus organizations have the deplorable habit of sponsoring bacchanalian revelries which are euphemistically yclept “social functions.” But, to their great credit, the PRs shrink in horror at the mere thought of using a sacred club meeting as an occasion for dubious festivities. Every member of PRs attends his meetings with a complete soberness of purpose. This seriousness of purpose also extends to the PR initiations, which are a utopian model as to how initiations should be conducted: there is no senseless abuse of the pledge, indeed, the pledges think so highly of their officers that they, at their own request, always carry extra supplies of gum and cigarettes with which to treat their officers. All of the members of the Pershing Rifles are drinking in the proof of the army’s efficacy, which, carefully distilled by their mentors, will surely turn them into model officers and gentlemen.

PSYCHOLOGY CLUB The present psychology club, lovingly abbreviated by its initiates to “psi chi. ’ is a descendant of the psychology club originally formed on campus in 19.il. This parent organization grew out of a repressed desire among the psychology majors to have an organization by which to further their aims and studies. When this desire finally filtered into the collective consciousness, it was manifested by the formation of the Psychology Club. This club had as its purpose the promotion and increase of psychological studies, both among psychology majors, and any other students who were interested in studying this quintessence of dust. The neurons, however, of this early organization seem to have had some difficulty in moving the impulses over the synapses, since the club’s early case history shows it to have soon slid into cretin complacency. The cause of this depressive syndrome seems to have been an apathetic rejection by the club members of the demands of a well-adjusted campus club. However, introspective analysis of the club's neurosis brought about, after a passage of time, a revitalizing self-awareness which so activated the organization as to make it one of the present campus’ most active and vital groups. Signs of this groping towards self-consciousness were seen in the club’s activities for 1951. The case history of this phase of development reveals the club's embarking on field trips, and sponsoring lectures by authorities on human relations. But these tentative efforts were not yet enough to give the club a full accomplishment of purpose. So, in 1959, a drastic reorganization of the club, coupled with a strong reaffirmation of its goals and policies, completely freed it from its lethargy, and made it an active and useful member of campus society. The 1959 reorganization was the work of Lew Waldeisen and Jon Philips. Its most gainful and profitable work has been its members' organized study visits to some of the state’s mental institutions. Study and discussion groups give each and every member of the club the opportunity to take a full part in the life of the club. 280IHOM ROB, left to right: Joe Silva. Hon Pucci. Tom Hawkins.

IVES LAW SOCIETY If the party of the second part in the case “As I Was Going To St. Ives" were to meet any of the budding logographers of the St. Ives I aw Society, he would probably be served with a sub poena ducis tecum on grounds of heptagamy: for the St. Ives Law Society is an adult organization devoted to the serious study of the law. Because ot the upsurge of legal interest in the student body, the membership of St. Ives, which is limited to upper division students who posses a more than ex post facto interest in jurisprudence, has been increased to twenty-five. This increase in quorum, however, is neither bench-packing nor an example of ab inconvenienti. rather, it is an example of an obvious case of ipso facto. For the past twenty-six years St. Ives has furthered among its members — all of whom probably proceed to law school after college — a professional and cultural interest in the law. The Society has a diversified docket by which to achieve its purpose. Its members convene at bi-weekly sessions at which they are addressed by prominent jurists on the more recondite and erudite aspects of the law. The members attend court sessions and observe their dispensation of justice. They pay an annual visit to the State Legislature, to assure themselves that the rights of Republicans are not being abrogated. St. Ives also sponsors social functions for the members and their dates. Indeed, so serious are the members of St. Ives in their pursuit of the law that they, by a sub rosa policy, associate only with young ladies of a strong legal persuasion. Social functions, therefore, are more infrequent and less bacchic than those of other campus groups, because the St. Ives advocates are more interested in mastering Blackstone than in celebrating their singular Praxagoras and Portias. Dttlce est desipere in loco cum grano salis. 281Scabbard and Blade, the group now at inspection arms, is the national military honor society, which drafts its members from among the best upper division students of military science here at USF. Its hoplites are those officers and gentlemen who have most distinguished themselves in fulfilling the goals of the society, a more meaningful understanding of the military life, and the cultivation of the qualities of good leadership. Leadership training is fulfilled in both the theoretical ami practical levels; there is classroom theory and discussion, and its supplement, the eminently practical and delightful summer camp. However, the most practical work of the members is that of teaching the lower division cadets how to drill properly. This onerous work is made even more difficult by the apathy and even resentment of the cadets towards military training; but the officers wade through this Augean cadet indifference, and at the end of the year can report, mission accomplished. They always dress right, and are easily identifiable by the mirror-clear polish of their hatbands. They issue their primary commands in stentorian voices, and are fundamentalists in citing 22-5 by the numbers. They are amiable towards their lower-division cadets; if. for instance, some newly-inducted freshman should neglect to salute an officer, this officer kindly and courteously points out to him his error. The officer’s first thought is to discipline his men intelligently and meaningfully, and not to punish them for being recalcitrant. This practical work of leadership transforms the officers from mere clothes horses into firm and capable leaders of men. Ever conscious of the duty which goes with their honor, they are excellent leaders, and a tribute to the education of the whole man.

(genus, Societas Jesu; species, batavianus). Dr. Edward Kessell moderated the group for 22 years since its first days in 1937. In 1959. Dr. Eola Woolcy became the faculty advisor. The purpose of the group is the furtherance of interest in the biological sciences, and the active participation in the solving of problems of biology. The Wasmann Biological Society was one of the few campus organizations which remained active during the war years. Under the astute guidance of Dr. Harper and Dr. Kessell it was trebled in the postwar period by the return of former members to the club. The polymorphous activities of the club embrace all aspects of biological studies, although special attention is given to entomology. The Wasmann Biological Society is nationally famed through its erudite publication, the Wasmann Biological Journal. The program of the societv is all-embracing, and has specially planned activities which appeal to every taste. There are scientific motion pictures and field trips to study biological activities in the tidal flats. The club also sponsors dances; however, its purpose is wholly disinterested and scientific. Its dances are viewed solely as an opportunity to give the physiologists the occasion to watch the conditioned reflexes of a control group under experimentation. The members, typical examples of Jesuit education, are conscious of their social obligation to educate the whole man. With this purpose, they have festivals of a non-tcientific nature. Most famous of these is the Christmas party, in which good cheer literally flows out the doors; the society members have shown equal zeal for work and play, and are a true continuation of the great scientific traditions in Jesuit institutions.

A spectre is haunting USF—the spectre of CDC. Under the guise of a duly chartered campus organization. the Democratic Club of USF, the California Democratic Council, a progressive liberal front, has quietly edged into the campus scene in an effort to overthrow the power of the Young Republicans. The machine ami mother. Quite innocuous in its own way. the USF Democratic Club goes on in much the same quiet manner of other campus organizations, holding parties, banquets, dances, and—by way of its political affiliations —it even helps certain candidates during election time. Following the maxim that “You have nothing to lose but your pocket-books, and there’s nothing in them anyway.” the USF Demo Club pledged its support to the Kennedy-Johnson campaign. The members worked furiously and credit for the eventual victory must be given them for handing out more “I - LIKE - JACK” buttons and “NIX-ON -NIXON” bumper tags than any other organization. But midway in the furious National Campaign, the USF CDC membership was forced to divert its attention from matters of consequence to take care of its own internal strife. As a result of the Great Club’s Day Scandal, the USF Democratic Club was forced to eliminate the corruption and dissention within its own ranks. The Purge of ’60 found at least one member (going by the obvious pseudonyms of Gary Analla I relegated to political obscurity for the rest of his life. In spite of its devious methods and doubtful loyalty to conservative ideals, the Democratic Club of USF has risen to considerable political power on campus in only two years of existence. 284 « to right: R,,n Pucci, Ted Stahr.

YOUNG REPUBLICANS In its three short years an the USF campus, the Young Republicans have seen fit to declare themselves the strongest political power on campus Iwith the exception of the machine). Offering a yearly fare, jam-packed full of fun. conventions, campaigns, anti cocktail jrarties. the membership is always well over more or less one hundred loyal followers. Founded in 1958 by the ambitious young Wayne McFadden (who just finished a term as president of the College Federation Convention». the club got right into the political siting of things by organizing a special election in Roseville anti by sending a sizable tlelegation to the State Convention of } R s in Sacramento.' Sinec then they have continued to aid the Republican candidates, and have fountI the yearly Conventions filled with the party spiritts). Following the maxim that cocktail oil the bonds of fellowship and a friendly tactical compromise can ruin unsuspecting opponents, the L SF group has virtually controlled the California Party circuit. The leaders of this spend hours and days working on building their power and prestige through building a large regular membership (the more members, the more votes). Offering to the prospective members the chance to see political power and corruption firs hand, the YR's have seen their membership grow each year.

Knighthood, was brought back to the Hall of the Don. Yes. chivalry, in the persons of the Knights of Columbus, was once more given its rightful place in society on the Hilltop. The newly formed council of the Knights, under the spiritual guidance of Friar Menard, pays its Icigc homage to the Supreme Headquarters of the Knights of Columbus in New Haven Connecticut, in return for which they give the l;SF Council protection—in the form of life insurance. Each year the Knights prepare for the battles ahead by retiring to the quiet hills of El Retiro. After a weekend of spiritual guidance, they sweep onto the campus where they not only fight the windmills and save damsels in distress, but wage annual war on the serfs and burghers of the campus. This last year the broadswords and hatchets took a gruesome toll as 176 pints of blood were shed. Cooler heads prevailed, as usual, and most of the blood was stored away for another fray. In the interests of romance and courtly love, the Knights open up the Hall of the Don to the lads and lassies of the Kingdom each Spring. This year they even featured two wandering minstrels. Sir Bud and Squire Travis. They open their coffers to the poor, their minds to God. and their hearts to the girls and further the ideals which have made their organization an integral part of the campus.

The Christian living during these times is placed into an environment where the primary rule is acceptance and success, not love and commitment. In one sense, it is inconceivable that the value system of the Twentieth century could be any more anti-thetial to the Christian goals. The lay apostolate of Europe has long been cognizant of the imminent dehumanization and secularization of modern society. In concrete dynamic fashions, leading Catholic thinkers and educators have tried to make real the message of Christ in this century. The liturgical movement, the ecnumenical movement. have evolved with specifically this purpose. In this age of challenge, the I’SF Men’s Sodality as an organization w ith regular offices and planned functions has been conspicuously absent. This absence is by choice, since lay apostolate action is not made real by the usual methods of student clubs. The Men’s Sodality, reorganized and revitalized this Spring, has junked the rigid, ostentatious externalization so often attached to groups of its kind. The new Sodality, rather than sponsoring complex group projects, serves as a seminar group or meeting ground for Catholic lay men who are striving to fulfill the twofold goal of the Sodality: sanctification of self and of others. 289290the 1911 varsity basketball team, which lost only one (tame, still very new at St. Ignatius, basketball uas played and received enthusiastically, referring to the old team, the 1911 Ignatiati stated: "the rapid passing of out i uintet repeatedly bewildered the boys from the mission town, and were it not for the fart that the sun was in our eyes the first half ue would have terminated each series of passes by a double tally." 292ATHLETICS The proud tradition of USF athletics began simultaneously with the birth of the University more than a century ago. During these years, USF athletic fortunes have to a large extent reflected the economic and social conditions which have shrouded each era of American history. A brief survey of the four decades demonstrates this parallel: the Hilltop's gradual rise to sporting prominence during the tumultuous twenties, the overall decline which accompanied the depression, the renovation of the nation and USF athletics under the New Deal, the harsh toll of m .power exacted by World War II, the deliberate national recovery and the University's return to athletic power during the post-war years, their common deterioration in the late fifties, and the anticipated upswing accompanying the Kennedy administration. As USF enters its second century of existence, a sober reflection of each period is justly appropriate. Sporting the Red and Blue of old St. Ignatius College, the Grey Fog, forerunner of our present day Dons, moulded the traditions, ignited the spirit, and achieved the greatness which has become characteristic of Hilltop athletes. The accomplishments of these early teams went virtually unrecorded; stories and legends of their accomplishments have been passed down through the years. The colorful days in the old gym when trampoline, wrestling, boxing. and gymnastics were the major sports and played on an intercollegiate level. Subsequent class reunions have been filled with accounts of Dutch Reuther and Vin Brown and the day St. Ignatius almost defeated the Chicago White Sox, or when the basketball team of 1919 spearheaded by Mel Cronin, Angie Johnson, Fddie Molkenbur, and Ray Williamson upset the Los Angeles Athletic Club, or the first legitimate football team captained by I. J. S. Fitzpatrick practicing on the famous Ignatian Rockpile. The color and spirit of athletics during these early years provided a fitting backdrop to describe recent USF sporting achievements. The fabulous twenties were the years during which USF became firmly established as a national power in athletics. After capturing the Pacific Association Championship, the 1929 Ignatian five directed by Coach Jimmy Needles, fought its way to the collegiate final at Kansas City. The courageous Ignatian cagers sick and weary from cross country travel were beaten by Philip University 26-17. All-American Ray Maloney, who scored eleven of the Grey Fog’s points, played the entire second half with a fractured ankle. Maloney’s effort was characteristic of the spirit of these early teams. Later that same year, the highly touted Fog baseball team managed to gather only a mediocre 3 and 3 record. Coached by the great Ping Podie and captained by sparkplug Ray O'Connor, the all-veteran 1929 ball club was one of the biggest disappointments in Hilltop history. Their poor performance has often been blamed on the loss of the team’s mascot, a baby elephant. On the gridiron, however, the Dons enjoyed startling success. The 1930 eleven, the first to be nicknamed the Dons, and coached by Jimmy Needles, won six and lost three. The heroics of starters Dan Murphy, Red Yacarro, “Soup” Carrothers, John O'Maries, and Bob Klcckner have become models of athletic greatness. Kleckner, often called the Hilltop’s finest all-around athlete, is known for his sixty yard punts against the traditional rival. Gaels. In that same year, the first organized soccer team was fielded at USF. Existing on a personal grant 293from Father Flynn. S.J., the Zonazzi coached kickballers captured the fir t of many USF soccer championships. The Dons won every title, until it was wrested away in 1937. Early soccer greats responsible for these triumphs were A1 Gordon. Bill and Paul Golden, John Bozanno, Ike Arnowitz. Jerry Kenney, llerk Lokmiller, I. Plonsky and the late Fr. Tom Korn. S.J., Mark Golden, and Honore Zabala. Dark days athletically prevailed during most of the depression. Only soccer showed any measure of greatness. The football team coached initially by Spud Lewis and later by Duke Molby, suffered a seven year victory famine. Significantly, the economic hardships wrought by the depression, prevented many potential stars from entering the University and as a result, the basketball team fell to an unprecedented depth. Indeed, the severity of the depression was reflected in many respects by the athletic anemia which prevailed on the Hilltop. The revival of the nation earmarked the simultaneous resurgence of Don sports. The renovation of the USF athletic machine began rather significantly in 1938 when Bill Telesmanic scored USF’s first touchdown against St. Mary's since 1932. The photograph of Bill Telesmanic surrounded by two of his teammates after scoring the six pointer has become a classic example of Don spirit and desire. The real significance of the picture was not realized until three years later when Bill and his two companions, Don Fisk and Don Benedetti died defending their country. The Hilltopper victory over St. Mary's (7-0) the following season (USF’s first in their thirteen year rivalry) demonstrated emphatically USF's return to athletic prominence. That same year the Don tennis team took the limelight when it captured the California Intercollegiate Tennis Championship. Baseball also made a limited comeback. Unfortunately, it did not regain even an approximation of its past greatness and became classified as a minor sport. In 1939. war again threatened to engulf the free nations of the world. The gradual involvement of the United States caused an inevitable decline in Hilltop athletics. More and more college students enlisted in the armed services, leaving only a handful of students on the then somewhat deserted Hilltop. Basketball and soccer continued to be played, but on a very limited scale. There were no formal conferences; teams from the different colleges competed with each other on an informal basis. The football team under the direction of Jeff Cravath continued for a while amassing a 6-4 record during the ’41 season. In its final two pre-war years of competition, the Dons only won 7 of 18 contests. Most other sports, including baseball, were dropped, as college men traded their equipment for the deadly implements of war. The revival of athletics on the Hilltop following the war was a gradual process. Pete Newell, freshly discharged from the army, seized the helm of the basketball team. If his early record was not impressive, Newell began a rebuilding job which was to reap enormous dividends a few years later. The reconstruction of the basketball team was matched by the work of Dr. Augustine Donoghue with the soccer team. During his initial season. Coach Donoghue was forced to compote in the newly formed soccer conference with only eleven men. Despite their apparent manpower shortage, the Dons managed to finish a USF float from the Jays uhen football u as king, through the goal post, the players and spectators pass to the spirit of their school, the spirit of the Dons. 294football in the mid-twenties was rough because of the little padding which protected the player. here, Connors makes two yards through right tackle against Chico. a respectable third in loop play. The following season the team, bolstered by a larger turnout, rose to second place in the league standings. On the gridiron, the influx of war veterans provided the nucleus of talent front which Coach Joe Kuharich was eventually to develop his renowned football powerhouse. The Green and Gold eleven, long the doormat for other independent colleges, improved rapidly in time. Lean years in 1916 and 1918 gave way to what is now termed USF’s Golden Era in sports. First, the baseball team paced by pitcher Con Dempsey and sluggger Paul Schramka became the outstanding nine in the West. Then tennis ushered the Hilltop into the sports limelight again. Led by Art Larsen and Sam Match, the Dons won the National Collegiate Team Championship. Their coach, George Kraft, did an outstanding job in grooming his players to the top. Success in tennis was followed by comparable achievements in soccer. Beginning in 1918, the Don hooters amassed a string of eleven consecutive conference championships and a record of 91 victories without a defeat. The success of these teams can readily be attributed to All Americans Negalsco, Lee, Orifugun, Baptists, Pike, Cos, Oritz, Nyoku-Obi, and many others. Their efforts were rewarded by two bowl appearances against Pennsylvania State 1949 and Temple in 1951. winning the former and dropping the latter contest 2-0. On the hardwood, the Dons were also victorious. In 1949, four short years after the war, USF fielded the best team on the coast. Their overall record of 21-5 earned them a birth in the National Invitational Tournament in New York. The little known Don quintet was rated an embarrassing 20-1 chance of capturing the title from such powerhouses as Manhattan, Utah, Bowling Green, and Loyola of Chicago. USF' led by All-American Don Ixjfgran, Rene Herrerias, and Boss Gu id ice captured the coveted crown in commanding fashion. The following four seasons, however, saw a dismal decline in USF basketball. Directed by new Coach Phil Wool pert, the Dons enjoyed little success. Reason for the rapid decline can be laid to the inevitable letdown which follows a championship team, and the Korean War. In 1951, another of USF’s minor sports gained acclaim. The rifle team directed by Sergeant Toddy captured the Southwest Invitational Rifle Tournament and the San Francisco Rifle Association title. Outstanding marksmen on that team was All-American Tony Sherman. The rifle team’s triumphs were rapidly overshadowed by USF’s last and finest football eleven. Paced by All-American Ollie Matson, the Kuharich coached Dons gave USF' its first undefeated football season. Unforgettable are the Sunday afternoons in Kezar Stadium with 2000 shirt sleeved Dons screaming, “All the way, Ollie.” And Ollie would respond to their cries by going all the way. With the powerful Matson punching gaping holes in the opponents’ lines, the Hilltop rolled to consecutive victories over Tulsa, Nevada, St. Mary's, San Jose, Santa Clara, Detroit, COP, Fordham, and San Diego Navy. Failure of all major bowl committees to extend an invitation to the Dons made it impossible then to estimate the true value of the Hilltop eleven. However, the fact that at least eight of its members including Matson, F'd Brown, Gino Marchetti, Lou Stephens, Roy Barni, Joe Scudero, Ralph Thomas, and Bob St. Clair, starred in the professional ranks, gives some indication of its true greatness. 295Baseball during all those years was producing many outstanding individual performers, such as Bob Thollander, Joe Arenevar. and Paul Tonento. As a whole, the horsehidcrs' record of victories was mediocre. Performance, however did not dampen the enthusiasm or interest of both students and players. Significantly, many Hilltop stars were given professional tryouts or signed to major league contracts. The abandonment of football caused additional emphasis to be placed upon basketball. Coach Woolpert began an extensive building program designed to restore their 1949 stature. His endeavors were mightily rewarded when the Dons captured two consecutive NCAA championships in 1955 and 1956 and established a record of 60 victories without a defeat. Stars such as Bill Russell, K.C. Jones, Jerry Mullen, Hal Perry, Mike Farmer, Gene Brown, and innumerable others contributed to this fantastic record. Indeed, Russell and Company, among other things, were directly responsible for the construction of the memorial gym which presently stands on the Hilltop. Overnight the Jesuit University of San Francisco became the basketball capitol of the United States. The USF basketball reign ended abruptly the following season when a last-second jump shot by Elgin Baylor defeated the Dons 69-67. The completeness of the destruction of USF’s basketball dynasty was not apparent until the 1958-1959 season. Crippled by injuries and the loss of key personnel, the Don quintet suffered the worst season in Hilltop history, finishing with a miserable 6-20 record. The 1959-1960. team showed little improvement, as the Dons lost the services of two first string players and two coaches, Phil Woolpert and Russ Guidice. However, the performance of two Sophomores, Bob Ralls and Bob Gaillard, on that team and some outstanding Frosh prospects gave Don supporters legitimate hopes for a basketball comeback. Minor sports faired poorly during this period. Handicapped by small turnouts and insufficent financial support, the tennis, golf, and even baseball teams slumped into a feeble position. Only the rifle team enjoyed any real measure of success. The 1958 team paced by Ed Pyral a n d All-American John Elmer journeyed to the Rifle Tournament finals in Texas. The subsequent loss of Coach Sergeant John Newly through illness is largely responsible for the present demise. Boxing revived temporarily in 1959 and 1960 with surprising success but was dropped again because of financial reasons. The present status of all minor sports on the Hilltop is somewhat nebulous. Unless there is a substantial increase in student interest or stimulation from the administration, these teams face possible extinction in the next few years. Even the perennially successful soccer team has suffered from this overall decline in USF athletics. In 1959 for the first time in eleven years, the Donoghue coached hooters failed to capture the conference title. An NCAA ruling enabled the second place Dons to participate in the national soccer playoff at St. this 1924 St. Ignatius basketball team surpassed all former school records by winning fourteen of their eighteen names, co operation and spirit were the mainstay of this group—both on the tart of the players and of the coaching staff. 29 6the three greats—Jones, Buchanan, and Russell, they juiced our mid-fifties teams to championships almost beyond the scope of hope, these teams “uere the Dons who brought fame, not only to themselves and their school, their city and their state, but to an entire Pacific Coast area starved for recognition.” Louis. Unfortunately, the Dons were handily defeated. The decline continued the following season when the soccer team finished lower in the standings and lost several conference games. The performance of such stalwarts as George Tubman, Tim Brophy, Tony Njkou, Ed Duran, Yves Joseph and many others has been exceptional, hut the overall team strength has noticeably declined. USF soccer received an even greater setback when Coach Donoghue announced retirement at the conclusion of the 1960 season. Hilltop athletics lost not only a great coach, but an outstanding gentleman as well. His greatness will never be equalled. USF enters the sixties with renewed hope for athletic advancement, at least in the field of basketball. The work of new Coach Fete Peletta in moulding a group of inexperienced sophomores into a title contender generates hope that another “golden era” of basketball may be beginning. The success of the Don quintets of the next few years depends upon the performance of Gaillard Rails, Lloyd Moffat, Ed Thomas, John Galten, and others. The talent-laden 1960-1961 Frosh team provides an additional promise of future greatness. Apart from basketball, however, the overall future of USF sports is not promising. With the deterioration of baseball, boxing, tennis, golf, the rifle team, and even soccer, the prospect for athletic greatness on the Hilltop are dim. The “Football for Fun” program engineered by Robert “Sargc" MacKenzie has failed to fill the vacuum created when the intercollegiate sport was abandoned after 1931. Rising academic standards make it increasingly difficult for capable athletes to compete for the Green and Gold. Unless the present trend toward de-emphasis (recognized or not) is checked, USF faces an athletic future similar to those experienced at many Eastern colleges. The glory and renown of the Klechners, the Williamsons, the Golds, the Larsens, the Lofgrons, the Matsons, or the Russells may well become only a fleeting memory. As USF expands its educational base, the death of that spirit so long a part of the Hilltop becomes increasingly apparent. A greater tragedy could not befall the Dons of Ignat ion Heights. 297MEN OF THE BACK BOARDS 298 FROiXT ROU : Rctluomini. Connolly, Coach Pete Pclettn. Range, U itson. It ICK ROU : Fish.

In the beginning of the year, many problems confronted both the team and the coaching staff. Essentially, the team was young and lacked experience as a unit. The new coach, Mr. Peter Peletta, was untried in major college competition. A lack of height further complicated the already difficult situation of rebuilding a national championship team. A unifying factor was needed to bring this group of inexperienced individuals and coach together. Desire and hard work were the factors that finally brought all the elements together as a team. It must be said that no one element stood out above the rest. Always, the scoring and rebounding was balanced among all the players. When these two parts were not balanced the result added up to a loss. While absorbing the few losses, the team and coach never gave up, but displayed a great courage in the losing cause. the Don in union . . . 299I STs brilliant forward.

Since this champion play in the tournament, the team has done very well in the league. The highlights of league play were heating pre-season picks, Loyola and St. Mary’s.

This junior is a very dangerous outside shooter and often came off the bench to start rallies. Glen Wilson, Bill Connolly, and Dan Belluomini typify the USF tradition of capable guards. These players showed tremendous leadership and hustle. Frank Nolan, despite a lack of height, is known as the hustler of the Don squad. His desire has made him an inspirational asset to the squad.

An upset victory, paramount injuries, and exasperating ties resulted in a shaky season. But perhaps the most crushing element of all is that it was Dr. “Gus" Donaghue’s last season as soccer coach. The season's opener against Cal’s Golden Bears was breath taking. The outclassed Dons fought vigorously to come from behind, taking a 2-1 victory in overtime. The injury laden team then suffered its first league defeat at the hands of the Stanford Indians, 2-0. Adding to the disappointment of the loss was the news that George Tubman, ace fullback for the Dons, would he out for the season because of a knee injury sustained in the Cal game. Regardless of their brilliant play, the Dons could only even their record by tieing the Cal Aggies 0-0 in overtime. The team effort was outstanding but the right scoring punch wasn’t there. 307AI Calonjc uses fancy footwork to fell Indian during hard fought contest in Palo Alto Muni I.opez-Contrarcs.

The sweeping rains in San Jose formed a perfect setting for the dismal lie with State. 4-4. The typical rough brand of soccer played by San Jose made Don tempers fly; eventially reverting to these same tactics, the Dons beat themselves, despite Frank Jacques’ three goals. Probably the best effort of the season was witnessed in the City College game. Despite the losing score, the Dons were truly brilliant to the final gun.

Willi the news just released that Dr. Donaghue was coaching his last season, knowing that he has never had a losing season, and being fully aware of their 2-2-2 record, the hooters grimly set out to win the season’s finale. Playing on a terribly muddy field, everyone was apprehensive, but the Dons couldn’t be stopped as they won 4-2 for the man they love and respect. Goalies Dick Davidson and Gus Marudos; fullbacks Peter Grauert, George Tubman, and Alex Ysrael; and halfbacks Ed Zelaya, John Harper, and Mani Lopez-Contrares composed USF’s “stone wall” defense.

Sarge MacKenzie. Despite a thin squad and lack of experience, the LSF gridders parlayed a fighting spirit, tough line, and a few quick stepping backs into a season that fell just short of the .500 mark. The initial game of the season saw the Don eleven pitted against Cal-Aggies at the latter's field in Davis. Aggie air superiority and inexperience in the USF line-backers enabled the Cal-Aggies to utilize their drag passes to the ultimate effectiveness in the second half to walk off victorious. Invading Hollister for their second varsity game, the Dons were confronted by numerous officials’ handkerchiefs throughout the evening. USF’s Ed DeAntoni scored early in the second quarter on a screen pass from “Skip” Wright to give the Dons an early lead. A fumble on the USF 3 yard line was recovered by San Benito, and they scored on fourth down. 315Ken hill It si I is through air force blocking to catch Hamilton quarter-hack from behind.

In their first home appearance, the Don eleven met San Francisco State’s powerhouse. State, exploiting their better speed and passing game, was a little more than the Dons could handle, going down in defeat. The USF gridders nipt San Benito a second time, on the l.’SF field, in one of the wildest games of the season. San Benito unleashed a potent aerial attack that afforded them an 8-0 lead mid-way through the first quarter. The Dons came hack, and in the third quarter blasted across for two touchdowns to take and keep the lead. San Benito was unable to come back, and lost 14-8.

The USFer’s drove 67 yards in the third quarter to score and came away with a surprisingly good performance against considerably faster competition. The days of Stanfel, Matson, Brown, Scudero, Hall, and Marchetti are gone. A big lime football program of the style of past years is no longer feasible for the independent colleges. Every year there are new additions to the ranks of the has-beens, and between 1952 and 1956, this was the case with USF. There has been, however, a rebirth of football on a low pressure basis at USF. It has proven itself in the last five years as the only way for the smaller colleges to save football. 318' defensive halfback Ed DeAntoni slops Air Force ballcarrier for only short yardage. the “Lillie Sender'' hauled down after another good gain in Hamilton mud bath. 3} 9VARSITY BASEBALL FROST ROW: Oliver, Alaura, Rarbcau.

Rifling, its skill, steadiness and nerve, are quite popular sports at such institutions as San Jose State, Treasure Island, and Fort Ord. The team, at the time of this writing, has a .500 average, shooting well enough to bring additional laurels to the hilltop. long hours of vigorous training . . .Under the leadership of Joe Martinez and Tony Sisson, the 1961 Don squad should go on to new heights. 10 years have passed since L’SF fielded a team of the Davis Cup quality. The climb back uphill has been long and difficult. This year's squad looks promising. At the time of this writing, a jubilant Don team has just trounced the Santa Clara Broncos 9-0.

In fact, the combined enrollments in other departments do not equal that of the undergraduate colleges. Unlike;—say—the University of Chicago, which concentrates on graduate study, USF focuses on undergraduate work, with graduate studies added according to need. Graduate departments were virtually unknown to the infant St. Ignatius College of the 1850‘s. During the latter half of the nineteenth century, however, a School of Law developed. It was not until the twentieth century that the present graduate programs in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Science evolved. The University of San Francisco, then, has always had a spirit indicative of its nature as an undergraduate institution. Early in USF’s history, the grammar sehool (a standard fixture until the 1920 s) and the high school (under the same Administration until 1959) became socially separate from the college department. While the institutions were housed in the same quarters (until the building of Campion Hall in 1926), rivalries of some degree arose between the divisions. Hut the primary rivalry was always between classes within departments. Traditionally, the strongest interclass rivalry is between Freshmen and Sophomores. So it has been with USF. Freshman initiation has always been a September tradition, and this ceremony has evolved with the University. although the daises of the 2ffs were suit wearers and Latin linguists, they did not miss their op-port unity to hate n little good clean all-American fun. 327Early initiation rigors (particularly in the “Diamond Jubilee” period of the 1930’s) were much more legalistic than the present initiations. Throughout a freshman’s first year, he was constantly subject to the jilies of upperclassmen, and was always considered available to do ASUSF “dirty-work.” Freshmen usually played the largest part in the grave-clearing project that ensued when the Jesuits acquired the old Masonic Cemetery property. Interclass contests also marked the initiation period. In the thirties, the new St. Ignatius High School athletic field was the scene of many bizarre athletic competitions. Freshmen were required to climb a greased pole and rescue a “Don”-style initiation hat from the Sophomores, and to kick tires from one goal to the other against a defending phalanx of upperclassmen. When Ulrich Field was added in the 1930's, the games look place there, and the traditional Frosh-Soph tug-of-war evolved. In USF’s pre-war years, freshmen were required to wear suits and ties to class and to speak with respect to all upperclassmen. It was an initiation rite not unlike those of West Point and Annapolis. As the closeness of St. Ignatius College diffused into the sprawling postwar USF, initiations became brief, standardized, and almost mechanical. In the transition of USF from an intimate all-male liberal arts college to a kalcidescopicuniversity, interclass rivalry has deteriorated to lip service. Many traditionalists lament this fact, and yet the change is generally a welcome one. this interesting collection oj odds and ends icere members of St. Ignatius High School during the days of yore uhen high school and college were yet unsegregated, observing this, one can understand why when the college was moved, spirit took a roaring upswing. 328the Frosh-Soph Braid of yesteryear: the Freshmen were condemned to climb a greased pole to retrieve a flag placed at its pinnacle, here one noble Frosh made a brave attempt to save his class from the crushing fate of another day’s battle. The social barriers that divided the lower and upper divisions the freshmen and sophomores, the juniors and seniors, are all but buried. The small, intimate groups of yesteryear—a source of lasting friendships and also of exclusive cliquishness—are virtually unknown to us today. In recent years, it has become commonplace for juniors to attend the Soph Drag, of freshmen the Junior Prom. Something has been gained; something has been lost. It would be hard in 1961, to reinstate the hallowed “Senior Steps” outside the chemistry laboratories in front of Campion Hall, or to consider class standing an essential requisite for campus social prestige. And this phenomenon is not peculiar to USF. Outside Eshleman Hall at the University of California in Berkeley sits a park bench boldly labeled “RESERVED FOR SENIOR MEN.” Painted on the sidewalk is the comment, ‘To hell with Senior Men!” And often seated on the bench—totally unnoticed—is a freshman coed. To be sure, there is still a feeling of accomplishment upon entering upper division, and a sigh of relief after freshmen initiation. But the era of interclass distinction a n d rivalry seems to have vanished forever. In the present informal atmosphere of the University, however, classes will continue to exhibit, within their amorphous confines, a certain distinguishing spirit. Whether it is the relative predominance of men from the Class of 1962 in the College Players, or the singular friendliness of nursing students in the Class of 1964, there remains, despite this era's class dissolution, a certain character to each class. 329The spirit of the undergraduate classes has, of course, changed with circumstance. And perhaps the most significant change in recent years has been the addition of the School of Nursing to the University. Before the nursing students’entrance onto the campus in 1954, it was commonplace for Dons to change into and out of ROTC uniforms in the corridors of Campion Hall. But when USF became partially coed, a rule was passed which still appears in each edition-of the USF Student Handbook: ‘'ROTC uniforms must not be changed in any of the halls of the University buildings.” The rule seems humorous now, but the transition was a difficult one. Suddenly, male students began shaving before coming to school. No one would admit, however, that this was for the benefit of the new coeds. In fact, almost to this year it has been traditional to regard nursing students as irrevocably unattractive. But actions speak louder than words. Another significant change was the erection of Phelan Hall in 1955. “Them Hair now stands where barracks housed athletes during the football dynasty of “Smilin’ Ed” McKeever. Suddenly, the addition of this building,has permanently transformed USF from a day college to a boarding school. Until 1955. the campus was desolate by 1:15 every afternoon. Except for a few laboratory sessions, no after-class activity of any form occurred on the parking-lot campus until the College Players, Philhistorians, and similar groups held evening meetings. Today, over half the undergraduate students in the day division reside on campus. 330 the Frosh did not make it. somewhere at the bottom of the pole, he is receiving his just reward.the Muck Club in 1932: these chosen athletes formed the elite of the University caste system, the "Grey Fog" mesomorphs tcere members of the Varsity squads which during that eru gained the University a nationwide reputation. Since 1955, the political focus of the ASUSF has shifted to Phelan Hall. Various functions such as “Scholars' Snacks" during exams, movies (for residents only), and the annual Christmas banquet have been sponsored by the Residence Council. This organ of student government arose out of necessity when the 100-plus capacity of the dorm began to lie fdled. As tin! 50 s came to a close, increased applications lor on-campus residence necessitated the addition of a 200-plus capacity annex to the Hall. The Nursing students' residence. St. Mary's Hall, has followed its male counterpart in the organization of a Residence Council. This year, the new committee has sponsored a faculty-student coffee hour and a dance, and has worked with the Phelan council on the combined Christmas banquet. Together, the two councils succeeded in applying to their respective directors. Father Joseph Keane, S.J., and Sister Mary Grace, S.M., for extended hours of evening freedom to precede that ominous time of night known as “room-check.” Dorm life has come to USF. With it have come such traditional procedures as complaining about meals, dreading prefects, and the perennial conversation piece, “Ya goin home for th weekend?” It has only been within the past five years that the dormitories have been added to the campus, but they have made their presence known and are here to stay. The spirit of the undergraduate classes is today more amorphous than it has ever been. The picture of USF now involves a myriad of components—several of which were never considered by the three students who attended St. Ignatius College in 1855, nor by the Diamond Jubilee class of 1980. nor even the Centennial Class of 1955. The members of the undergraduate classes must now regroup and face a new USF. At this stage in the University’s development, it is imperative that efforts be continued for the growth of the students in keeping with that of their University.LIBERAL ARTS Opinion and judgment constitute the core of a liberal arts education; discussion, comparison and contrast constitute its life. Through education in liberal arts man comes closer to a recognition of his relation to other men, to the state, to God, and to himself. Through this education he passes from knowledge, through understanding, to wisdom: the long-sought, seldom realized “whole man.”Donald Ahlbach James Bahich Alfred Bailey Steven Batter Walt Brodic John Brown Richard Brown Robert Burton Kevin Connolly Michael Connich Miles Craflon Kdward De Antoni Raymond Dcimehy Richard Devinccnzi Clement Dougherty Waller Fitturniak Peter ( raiiert Michael Hannan Donald Hanson Dennis Kennedy William Klein Kolwrt Knott Daryl Lane Thomas Lang Lawrence Mackenzie Brian McMahon James Medeiros John Mahoney Gerald Marchi Joseph Mariani Koliert Martin David McAuliffe Frank Nolan Robert O'Neill Russell Ponce Robert Pope Dudley Poston Koliert Ralls Arthur Ramey Alan RavelinAlbert Chaquette Raymond Clark Marlin Coen Frank Foehr (Carlos Galvin Robert Gloiston Charles I eyes l -roy Lounibus Kenneth Lovctte Denis McLaughlin Chris Monahan Renato Nicolai Rert Ripple Daniel Ritter W.

Perhaps for the realization of an immediate need or perhaps in the realm of fundamental research and theory, man strives continually to adapt to nature in ways more useful, more pleasurable, and more productive than those of the generation preceding. This effort to harness the power of nature and direct that energy toward the service of man constitutes the nature of science and marks its value for mankind. 1 wmamry Paul Airnd Leopold Aval lone HoIhti Berio Ci'orgc Bunnell Dan Burns Jolin Oasamiijuola Richard (avalIi kauslo Cazzavago Karry Fields Brian Glusovich William Grandolfo Michael Caspers Richard Harper John Hendrickson hred Ikard George Jrddcloh Allan Mackey Dennis Marino Koltcrt Marraccini Peter Mateu Donahl Matthews John McCormack lack Mclnerney Ronald Menhennct [•‘rank Paluzuclos William Peterson Anthony Pozos Lawrence Puccinelli Natale Quiliri Kric Ruluielierg Peter Robles Carl Ryan David Shcrden Glen Stratford Robert Suzuki Roy Tulcc Albert Wchrly Stewart Wirth Claude Woolwinc William roting 352The student of science — long, long hours in the laboratory, eye-slraining research of the literature, the continual flow of problem sets: these form the preparation which enables curiosity to fulfill itself in the miracles performed by and for modern man.

Their work while undergraduates will result in years of service in one of man’s most crucial concerns, his health. The reward for their work is difficult for the uninitiated to comprehend, hut perhaps this is the key to its attraction: only the few can go beyond themselves in the service of others.Judy Alexander Marlyn Maloney Jean Til Ion Kvrlyn Bolla Judith Anne Flynn Martha Hachli Jane Matkovich Catherine Weaver Sharon Brady Barltara Franklin Donna Contri Carol MrGirriek Judytli Woods Carole Buengcr Rita llelinkamp Barbara Dillon Jean Gallagher Kathleen McDonnell Jeanne McKenzie nno|yso aim l.inda Ceeehini Kalhleen Ccrvelli Jeanne Jahn Mury Joan Kelly l.vnne Garcia Jeanne Park Mary Chester Pamela Kenefick Ionise Giaeomazzi Diane Ginotti Mary Pritchard Kileon Reilly Kathy Ailcs Mary Brigid Colvig Barbara Connecly Patricia Kneip Diane Lima 380Marilyn Hagcrman M.

Incorporated Importers, Wholesale and Retail Dealers in EASTERN AND CALIFORNIA OYSTERS CALIFORNIA MARKET San FranciscoTHE EDITORS AMEN the deed is done." A yearbook is more than a cover and its pages. A yearbook is a whole wealth of isolated happenings and events. It is a human adventure. I am sitting alone in the yearbook office, the office which had become my second home. Smoke from my cigarette is aimlessly curling up—meandering this way and that. The notebook paper upon which 1 am writing is spread out on the spotted green surface of my desk. Everything is quiet: the typewriters have stopped writing. I feel strangely distant and alone. And this is my message. I am hopelessly inadequate to write it. This is the last step, the big final, the end of the show. I feel like an actor after a play or a student after graduation. I cant redo what I've done, can I hope to better next time. The staff is gone, the staff to whom 1 shall never be able to show my gratitude or thanks in the way I should like to. So what do I do? write the way I'm writing now, hoping to communicate just a little of these last hours. To Ed Stephan. I say thanks. Ed was a guy who had an amazing ability, an agile mind, a creative talent. He had the ability to see, to predict, to understand relationship. Many times for many hours, the editor and Ed sat haggling in the neonlight of the DON office, smoking cigarette after cigarette, discussing in ivhat way this thing or that thing should be done. To Alma Merlo who was the Don s guardian angel. She teas a wonderful girl, a great credit to the University. Her understanding, her humility, her unaffectedness will always be close to the editor and to the staff. To George Devine, a Prometheus unbound, who wrote like a Harper s editor. George never once missed an assignment. He saved the DON from many a tight spot. To Silvano Votto whose puns and quips delighted and sometimes confused the staff. His Spartan zeal and wide-ranging knowledge made him one of the Dons invaluable members. To Bob Guy who never once asked the editor for help, who bludgeoned him with reminders to get this picture and make that call. Bob's fine sport section is Bob's best compliment. To Terry Guiles pie whose IBM efficiency embarrassed the editor, whose typing speed is rivaled only by rumors in Phelan Hall. Her vivacious spirit still echoes in the empty off ice. 398To Pete Montez who fought the bloody battle of the organization section, whose dedication and per-serverance were extraordinary (as every club president knows). To Bob Crowley who gave the editor ego-support, listening to his long and wearisome stories, his tirades, his diatribes and his condemnations. To Ben Hanley, whose money-making schemes almost broke the budget. He worked hard, attempting to pul the DON back on the advertising lists after many dry years. To Mary Chester who, in spite of carrying the heavy study schedule of a sophomore nurse, completed the laborious job of the student section. Her wide eyes beguiled the editor into torpor. To Judy Mills, little Miss America with her red bermuda socks, who typed more words than the editor spoke. To David Kuly and his pipes who taught the staff the art of pipe smoking. To Bob “Shylock” Lawhon who took more pictures than Graham has crackers. To Charles tiouck upon whom the editor took out his aggressions. Charlie never missed a picture. To Dan O'Neill who never spoke unkindly of life, who rivaled “Peanuts” in the art of humor. To Jack De Govia who was a Romeo off stage as well as on, to Barry Johnson, tomorrow's Elvis, who saved the reception, to George Rowan and Bob Marchant who gave the non-advertisers heart trouble, to Mary Beth Sheahan who tried to write, to Merl Simpson and Starletta Martini, the DON'S first couple, to Darell Solomon who wrote too well, the editor is deeply grateful. To Bob Chanteloupe who almost saved the horn, to Diane Jepperson, Al Black, Dennis l.ucey, Bill Klien, Mike Svancvik, Carry Johnson, Judy Flynn, Audrey Knecht, Pat de la Forest, Gary Still, Steve Knight, Bill Peterson and Larry Kean who made the work load of the book much lighter. To Bob Elmore who never heard an unkind word from the staff, to Barbara Katchcl, the DON'S photographer, who never once said “no” who always came through when she was needed, whose kindness, understanding, and efficiency are rare in the business world of today. To Doug Douglas who lost 50 pounds shooting USE pictures. To Fr. Fischer, S.J. and Fr. Moore, S.J., who kept the. editor from becoming power mad. To Fr. Keane, S.J., who spent more than one sleepless night listening to the various modulated noises emanating from the DON office. To the members of the advisory board without whose patience and advice this book would have been impossible. To the students whose sincere interest and innumerable queries provided a strong motivation for the editor and staff. To all of you a humble and sincere thank you. This book has been the culmination of 50 years of development for the DON. It has been the high point of publication development at the University. Future years shall tell the tale. The 1961 DON is not intended to be simply laid away on a shelf. It is intended to be read, to serve as a guide, to open to the reader new ideas, new goals and new horizons. In one way this book was an experiment. For a long time, the campus writers have been lamenting what they term “student apathy.” think this to have been proven false. The student is willing to work, willing to achieve, willing to create. In fact, he is crying for these things. Unfortunately, however, relatively little guidance—and in many instances, little opportunity—is given him on the long road to selfdevelopment and self-understanding. When his class hours are over, his study hours begin. But how sorrowful: life cannot be learned from a textbook. The writing in it, no matter how well done, is at best only an abstraction. Beauty, achievement, understanding: these things rest with the individual. They are found only in the individual. Most of us must be content not to become stoics. Our society demands a different system of adaptation. It demands that we find purpose and meaning in the living — in conjunction with the living, in communion with the living. ACTIVITY: yearbooks, athletics, organizations: all function to bring the student into this realm of reciprocity, of exchange with the living. These functions bring individual to individual. And if he is properly disposed, he cannot fail to succeed to learn more of himself and of others. Thus when reading this book, look for more than pictures and words: understand that each photograph and paragraph was the result of human action. Each was an achievement and a lesson, born out of a whole multiplex of interrelations. Bear in mind that the staff was growing and learning as it worked. May each student have the opportunities that this staff and editor have had, to grow, to work, and to achieve. 399CREDITS THE JUBILEE DON Dedication............ Foreword...............
