S PYl ti m y x 1928 REDWOOD PUBLISHED BY THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SANTA CLARA ALVIN J. WOLF, ' 2 editor MAURICE HOFFMAN, ' 29 ' Business J)iCanager 1928 REDWOOD ANNUAL PUBLICATION OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SANTA CLARA SANTA CLARA • CALIFORNIA • VOLUME XXVII «v? Jk IA - V t o FOREWORD THE new Mission Santa Clara of 1928 is completed! The last stone has been laid, the last timber put in place! And as this new ornament, so significant of the spirit of Godliness per- meating the ideals and teachings of the University of Santa Clara, rises to a new birth, the history of the foundation of this preeminent state of California is of necessity called to mind. We are honored in being called her sons. We rejoice in knowing and laud- ing her virtues. It is with the hope, therefore, that some new reason may be found for knowing and loving better this state and its founders, that we have selected as the motif of the 1928 Redwood, " Historic California. " ° Nn ° KL DEDICATION ANOTHER group of years have slipped away and once again the .University and the people of Cali- fornia are called upon to witness that gigantic drama. The Passion Play of Santa Clara. It has been the work of months, nay! of years to accomplish this masterpiece of all that is pure and high and noble. To Clay M. Greene, the author; to Edward P. Murphy, through whose un- tiring efforts the 1928 production was made possible; to the student actors, who in any way have helped to mak this historic gem of their Alma Mate a success: to the makers of The Passion Play of Santa Clara, both past and pres- ent, is this volume respectfully ded ' cated. JRING the few short years of the student ' s sojourn at Santa Clara many changes transpire. One looks back over that time to his entrance day, recalls the faces of former Fathers and professors, sees again in his imagination the " Row, " the old " Ship, " and the Infirmary. Yet these fond memories are overshadowed by the passing from our midst of the Third Mission Santa Clara, a victim to the devasting fire of October 25th, 1926. Through her portals had moved for over a century the priest and the layman, the teacher and the taught, friends and benefactors of the University. How many thousands first communed at her rail! What numbers have been blessed and buried from her altar! Mute witness to the coming and going of generations what transformations she has seen! Not in the mere accomplishments of your school years and mine but the continued struggle of scores of them. Erected for the greater glory of God, in service, love and charity toward mankind, this Third of the Mission Churches sent that spirit onward though the edifice itself, like all earthly things, has passed away.

THE REDWOOD The Campus before the Mission Fire- University For some time, and especially during the past year, old grads and alumni have wandered hack to the old stamping grounds of Alma Mater to view what for them has been the scene of scenes — The Rebuilt Santa Clara Campus ! True, there has been a pang of pain as they realize that the historic buildings which they once knew and loved so well are no more. But this has given way in time to a happier thought as they grasp the meaning of these new structures : more students for Santa Clara, more men molded according to the principles of Santa Clara, and, in the end, more sons of Santa Clara. l " ' l l ' " l l ' " l l ' " l l ' " l I .17! THE REDWOOD Splendid co-operation has done this for our institution. Co-operation on the part of the University authorities and on the part of the Alumni. When Mission Santa Clara was gutted over a year and a half ago, the loyal sons of the University were among the first to offer help for its restoration. Not only that — upon the completion of the Mission Church, certain necessary fixtures were wanting; again the alumni responded nobly, willingly. PETER F. MORETTINI, University of Santa Clara graduate and loyal alumnus, through whose generosity and thoughtfulness the recasting of the ruined Mission Bell was made possible March, 1928 RANDALL D. O ' NEILL, also graduate of University of Santa Clara, who, together with Mr. Morettini, saved for the future glory of the New Mission Santa Clara that which otherwise would certainly have been lost forever. : ■ ' The recast Mission Bell and the two Alumni who financed it. The students of the University must not be forgotten when mention is made of Santa Clara and Santa Clara ' s development. They have had no little part in broadcasting their institution ' s fair name to all corners of the country. A perusal of The Redwood ' s Activities for the past year will satisfy the incpivirer that Santa Clara ' s students have done their bit and done it well. When the Mission Restoration Committee needed their assistance the entire student body turned out en masse and contributed what they could both financially and in spirit. The greater Santa Clara is speedily becoming a reality. Already we boast of ideals that will and must pave the way toward wider recognition, keener interest — a new era. Kgv. Cornelius J. oMcQoy, S- J- Tresident of the University California ' s romantic history is an inspiration to higher and better things. The Franciscan Padres, fired with zeal for souls and civilization, came to the far western seaboard, and established their wondrous chain of Mis- sions, wherein they taught the natives the sacred truths of Faith, the lessons of eternity, and formed in them the social bonds of Christian civilization. Their ex- ample hires us on to similar sacrifices and to like accomplishments. Adventurers too, came to this land of beauty and of promise and soon un- earthed the stored treasures of its hidden gold. Couriers bore the tidings far and wide, and paths were opened over precipitous mountains, through virgin forests and over dreary, sage-ladened plains to the golden land of worldly riches. A State was added to the Union. Other adventurers — black-robed, men crucified to the world and to whom the world was crucified, heard the tidings and came in quest of souls, to seek a treasure of human hearts. Into the Valley of Santa Clara they came, to the hallowed, crumbling walls of her almost desolate Mission. At a Bishop ' s bidding they opened a College — the first in the far West, and gave ge nerously of effort and of life for the cause of Christ. Today a University surrounds the restored Mission of Santa Clara, and a new generation carries on the work of the Padres and of the black-robed adventurers. May Heaven shower a blessing on their work! bs} THE REDWOOD W. C. GlANERA, S. J Vice-President cAdministration I ' ring the past year the Administrative Board of the University of Santa (Clara has been responsible for many beneficial developments in the life of the institution. Through the initiative of Rev. Cornelius J. McCoy, S. J., President of the University, the Restoration of Mission Santa Clara received its first impetus early in August, 1927, and was completed in time for the Commence- ment Exercises which took place conjointly with the dedication on May 13, 1928. This year several new professors were added to the faculty: Mr. Hinckley, En- gineering; Mr. Cook, Chemistry; Mr. Whiteside, Business Administration; Mr. Ballinger, Biology; Mr. Armstrong, Law; Mr. Murphy, Dramatics and Public Speaking; Father Edward Shipsey, S.

Father Jerome S. Ricard, S. J., are congratulating him on what is at last the realization of his fondest hopes — the construc- ■ tion of the Knights of Columbus Ricard Memorial Observatory. For years his equipment has been crude, his facilities inadequate ; yet he has kept on though the long years were fast closing in on him. He was always happy, always hoping, always confident that he would not die ere he saw the new Ricard Memorial com- plete. His wish has been granted. FATHER RICARD finds time now to be happy in the thought that, given a suitable structure, the work which he tried so gallantly to carry on will flourish under a new generation. " THE PADRE OF THE RAINS " — the friend of anyone in need. Many people of the valley profit by his forecasts. Re The Knights of Columbus are to be congratulated most sincerely. Surely here are men who are striving to do the work which their organiaztion has set before them. Other Columbuses giving of their own to help and better others, continually on the alert to discover greater good at their own expense and often with much sacrifice. Father Ricard ' s work is a noble work. It is not for his own glory that he is seeking but for the good of his fellow man. The new observatory will help him carry on. It will help those who come after him to carry on in his stead, cherishing PS ' i i ' " i i ' " i i TT T P T r r nT r l 9 2 8 ■ ■ r l37l :; -s a Santa Clara. Showing the beautiful facade.

There is no need to go into the details of the success of this noble priest in his conquest of souls.

Santa Qlara mains after the devastating fire of October 25, 1926, and that reconstructed through the loyal generosity of two of our later alumni. It is thrilling indeed to live in the atmosphere of such a romantic past. Water, earthquake and fire have done away with the first three missions of Santa Clara. The fourth is built ! What element will be the reason of its end? Surely not earth- quake, for it is solid with the staunchest steel and concrete. Fire? Hardly. Its interior and exterior are fire-proof through- out in as far as any building can be fire- proof. Flood? Ask those who saw its foundations plunged into the depths of the old Mission sod. God has His own ways 1 " " l ' " ' ' " ' - and if the end of the Fourth Mission is to come, the stoutest steel shall not prevent it. The Fourth Mission Santa Clara is a tribute to those that had any part in restoring it. The alumni, the Native Sons of California, the stu- dents of the University of Santa Clara, all may justly feel proud of hav- ing been instrumental in its construction. ff39l HE coming of the Dons " was practically simultaneous with the ad- vent of the good padres into unexplored tracts of early California.

The resistance was at most intermittent, and the European who had broken his way through the terrible, mysterious Apache Land found little trouble on the western slope. Of Spanish noble blood these first settlers discovered the fitness of the new country for their ambitions and soon a semblance of civil government sprang up. Monterey became their capital in 1768.

LITERARY n V ' i THE REDWOOD 5 ie Qfory hat " Was By Victor Diepenbrock, Law ' 28 t is a California day of a hundred years ago. " Apollo ' s fiery steeds " are just commencing " their descent from their long, perilous climb. Un der his gentle caress an adobe Mission lies sleeping. It is time for the siesta. But soon the ___ __„ 1 ™«, tolling bells call the Padre and his Indian children to their interrupted duties. With patient, kindly air the old Fran- ciscan attends to the plights of his primitive flock. He is a jolly man, with a bit of comforting philosophy for each new disappointment. They must do their utmost and place their trust in God, for in these two things shall they find peace and strength in the time of adversity. Perhaps, he is thinking of home, of his youth in far away Spain, when his reverie is shattered by the approach of a stranger — a weary, travel- stained fellow, who checks his miserable mount, at sight of the Padre, and with all the courtesy of a gentleman, inquires as to the health of his host. The wanderer seeks a bit of rest, a morsel of food, a draught of wine, and unkempt though he be, poor as he is, he is taken in and given the hospitality of the Mission. For in those gallant days, the latchet strings were ever on the outside and few were the outcasts who had to sleep beneath the stars. It is a California night. A golden moon hangs suspended from the jewel-encrusted heavens. The air, heavy with the perfume of the dangling wisteria, has its stillness broken at intervals by the hoot of the great owl. The night seems filled with a cpieer, an odd symphony of tiny insects, with the rustle of crawling creatures, with the mournful cry of the coyote. In the distance a light peeps through the shutters of a hacienda, to guide the way of the handsome young caballero calling on his senorita. Soon these two will ask the venerable Padre to bless them in marriage and to pray for them that they may have many and strong children and a happy home. Wealth they care not for — but only peace and comfort and love. A simple, almost child-like life the early Calif ornian led, but what a beautiful one ! Ah, what a life was that ! Where ever was there a more picturesque, a more romantic people than the Spaniard of a mere century ago ? Where might anyone find a more selfless, a more sacrificing, a more noble person than the old Padre? Let me attempt to tell the story of the Missions. A string of pearls were they, extending from Sonoma in the north to San Diego in the south, a string of once lustrous, matched pearls, a string that had been dipped into the wine of time, but now is broken and faded. Yet there still remain some of these monuments to a race now gone — to a work now finished. Though much of what was the string of Missions has crumbled into dust, still in their remains, they attest the love that the missionary had for his fellow man. Noble structures, perpetuating the memories l43l I H THE REDWOOD of all the missionaries, they are particularly kind to the work of one — Padre Junipero Serra. Junipero Serra, to whom California owes so much, was born in the year 1712. His were a people of no social distinction or worldly ambition, but a simple house whose wealth lay in its love for God and devotion to ordinary duties. Though christened Michael Joseph, young Serra early laid aside this name for the loved Franciscan one of Junipero. As a boy he showed the traits and predilections which later characterized the man as we know him. Ever devout and pious, he entered the seminary at the age of sixteen and only two years later took the strict vows of the Franciscan Order. Unlike those of so many, the ambitions, which Junipero Serra cherished as a youth, were the ambitions of the man ; the friends whom he loved as a student in the seminary were his intimate companions when a priest. Saintly Serra and the three whose lives were so closely entwined with his own, Palou, Verger and Crespi, met in the monastery, loved one another and each found in the others the same aspirations and hopes that flowed in his own heart. The four ever eagerly looked forward to the time when they would be working, side by side, in New Spain, teaching and laboring among the savages. Again and again the four pleaded to be dispatched to the new country, again and again they were bitterly disappointed. Finally, when it seemed as though Fathers Serra and Palou might sail while the others remained, their infinite patience was rewarded and in happy rapture the bosom companions left the land of their birth. The voyage was a severe one, for they were tossed about on an unfriendly sea for twenty-four hours short of a hundred days, their provisions were exhausted, rumbles of dissension among the crew were spasmodically heard, and, so threatening was the weather, that it seemed the brave little ship would never reach the dreamed- of land. What a calamity for California had they been lost ! That voyage portended every movement that Junipero Serra was to make in the work of building up a civilization in the New World. The many days on the trackless seas were figures of the disappointing years, which were to pass before the little band was to leave Mexico for the golden goal — California ; the mutiny of the sailors must have given Serra a premonition of the intermittent troubles with the Indian and White, and the failure of the provisions was a harbinger of many lean days to come. Yet those valiant priests had courage, and of that courage was born the will to carry on for God and for the souls, minds and bodies of men. The four monks were not to have their ambitions realized at once. Year after year dragged on until nineteen had passed and still the intrepid group remained in Mexico. It was not until 1767, when the Jesuits were suppressed in the Spanish Dominions, that the Franciscans were to see the California that they had come to love. Biography says that Serra, in the exultation in the dream now come true, was " unable to speak a single word for tears. " Surely we need not wonder at this, for the saintly man had then reached the age of fifty-six, and from boyhood he had lived to work among these his red-skinned brothers. If Father Serra suffered privations during that first score of years, it was in mere preparation for the diffi- n It it u THE REDWOOD culties that were to come. No one, no matter how staunch of heart, could have fought against the odds he fought against, had he been working toward a merely human goal. Allow me to quote a passage from Engelhardt to show the determination and character of the Padre. " Serra ' s leg had become infected and mortification had set in. Governor Portola, in his kindness, asked him to return to the Velicata, but this the noble man would not consider, although he was in such intense pain that he could not draw a breath without a pitiful groan. The humble priest would allow no one to carry him, for he believed that he had offended God and was now suffering for his sins. In his agony Serra begged God to forgive him and then called a muleteer and asked of him, ' My son, can you find some remedy for my sore foot and leg? ' " ' What remedy can I have? I am not a surgeon, but a mule driver and can cure my beasts only. " " ' Well, my son, ' said the sufferer, ' imagine that I am one of those animals, and that this is one of their wounds, which pains me so much that I can not sleep ; then apply the same remedy you would apply to one of your beasts. ' " ' This I will do to please you, Father, ' said the man. He then took some tallow and mixing it with herbs he applied a poultice to the priest ' s sore leg. God rewarded the humility of His servant. The patient rested quietly that night, and next morning, to the surprise of everyone he arose early to recite matins. " No wonder that such a man was able to found nine missions, before his inspiring death in 1784. His labors were, in a great part, responsible for the additional ten added to the string within the score of years after his death. It is, then, primarily to the Franciscan Fathers and particularly to Saintly Serra that early California owed her remarkably high civilization and that the California of today has such a rich background in history and romance. Not many seasons had come and gone after the simple burial of Padre Junipero Serra, in the Mission San Carlos, before the missions were not only securely estab- lished but many of them were even prosperous and extremely wealthy, in lands and cattle. At their height the several missions were not only ornate temples for the adoration of God, not only the gay scenes of lavish fiestas wherein the entire country-side feasted and rejoiced, but they were also the centers of all the civiliza- tion they had introduced. The missionaries had come into an undeveloped land, inhabited by aborigines of a particularly low mental type. With this unpromising material, he!-e at the world ' s end, they introduced and began the development of the agriculture, horticulture and animal industry, the useful and the fine arts, which in their flowering of today and their promise for tomorrow make California a name to conjure with the world over. They brought the first seeds to sow our fields, the first trees to make our orchards, the first stock to furnish our domestic animals. They made of the roving and shiftless Indians, tillers of the fields, care-takers of orchards, herders of sheep and cattle. Carpenters, they made of them, and blacksmiths and craftsmen of various sorts. They taught them letters, and painting and architecture. Their architecture t ; " a n THE REDWOOD has colored the whole architecture of our State. They taught the savages how to serve and worship God and set them on the way to become civilized men. Then greed, the white man ' s greed, wrecked it all. The missionaries were driven out, the Indians scattered and that sadness which follows greatness became the heritage of a chain of noble ruins. Later, by fifteen years, came the Americans, and we continued, in our own way, what had been checked at the spoliation. Thus the California Missions became the cultured, hallowed spots of this great State. In full vigor and in their early strength they, more than any other factor, gave to the West Coast a civilization as high and more ideal than the civilization of the original colonies. What a shame that today, only three or four generations removed, there remain as monuments only a few crumbling heaps of dust to remind us of the glory that was California. Immutable nature demands that man and the works of man shall pass and fall away, and, though we can not give to the Missions, now being restored or rebuilt, all the kindly spirit and soft glamor of the Padre, still we can not allow the memory of his works to vanish into the cold pages of history. The picture of a California of a hundred years ago has faded. No longer do the mellow bells toll their kindly message to the simple-hearted Indian. No longer does the brown-robed Franciscan labor among his primitive flock. The Spanish gentle- man woos no longer the soft eyed senorita. The scene has shifted. Where once the bellowing herds thundered over the prairie, stately cities now stand. California, richer in wealth, is poorer in romance. These puny words have attempted to sketch a mighty story, a story too rich in every way for poor pen in small space to tell. Yet, if anything we have said gives anyone an insight into those early days of California ; if, because of our efforts intellectual curiosity has anywhere been awakened in so rich a field, then we shall have done much. If California had nothing else but her few clay Missions, stretch- ing out along El Camino Real, she would be wealthy in a tradition of which she might well be proud. Had she all else, but had the Franciscan Padres never visited her rugged shores, she would forever lack a sacred memory and a hallowed treasure. r I46I u n TH E REDWOOD o a tyorty-J iner " And all fulfilled the vision we Who watch and wait will never see.

Spann, Law ' 28 s the traveler leaves the tall timber and comes suddenly out upon Man- zanita Plateau, it is a cold, lonesome sight that meets his eye. Directly to the east, some five miles away, Mt. Lassen stares at him, aloof, rugged and secretive, crowned with a filmy haze that so often is mistaken by the tourist for smoke from one of her jagged craters. And as his eye sweeps down from the very summit the view becomes less pleasant. Around him, perhaps for ten square miles is a gently rising plain covered with an im- || penetrable growth of Manzanita bushes, and in sharp con- trast to the dusky green of this thicket are great lava boulders, Ik brown, age-old and pock-marked in that peculiar way that Jnh reminds the observer of a great stone sponge. If the day mk k jBI II ' ie c ' e ar, there hovers about the whole panorama an air of ifl ■= SM II mystery, of forgotten ages, of great loneliness. I . jij In these surroundings there once lived a very famous Hat E " " si ™™ " Creek Indian Chief, whose civilized cognomen, though a little grotesque, was none other than Charley the Shavehead. He had guided his tribe into California over the passes of the Sierras, from which they had gazed to the westward, far out over the great rolling vista, across the upper Sacramento Valley to the substantial but more humble Coast Range ; northward to the sentinel- like Shasta that raised her austere, snow-capped head far above her nearest rivals ; southward, down ridge after ridge to the fertile plains of the Sacramento ; and eastward into the pinnacled land of the rising sun. He lived to see the first aggressive, adventurous settler enter his domain, lived to see his supplanters grow and multiply, plough and cultivate, until every square mile of this great panorama bore witness to the labor of man. Before he died, dismantled of his tribal glory and savage prowess, he described to the white men geographical changes that had taken place ; painted to them in his gutteral monosyllabic tongue, a picture of the beautiful and fertile little basin that now forms the bottom of that sparkling Manzanita Lake, nestling at the very foot of the mysterious old volcano ; told them how many moons ago, the Old Man of the Mountain had grumbled and roared and belched forth smoke and steam. All these things he revealed to the eager whites. But of his great secret he maintained that stone-like impenetrability so characteristic of his race. Of Charley Shavehead ' s great secret, everyone had heard. Only one man ever had a nearer knowledge of it and he could make no use of it, though much he tried. One day, they will tell you in the North, when the first settlers started to creep into the rugged country, a lone herdsman found the Great Chief asleep at the foot of a tree. A quiver of arrows lay at his side, his bow across his breast. As hos- tility, or at least uncertainty, marked the relations between native and white, the horseman quietly dismounted, crept down within reach, and prodded the prostrate [48] THE REDWOOD ; : i warrior with the barrel of his gun. The startled Indian sat up with wide-eyed astonishment and fear, but the white man made known to him that he meant no harm. Conversation was carried on by means of signs and grunts and was marked by long Indian silences. Confidence grew. Finally the pioneer returned to his horse, led him down the slope, and the Great Chief accompanied him. The follow- ing morning they began a journey, the details of which the very children can tell you. They know how the young white man permitted himself to be blindfolded and led a day ' s march from Manzanita Lake into a wild and rugged country, round many a turn, across many a ravine, through the laughing of many a mountin stream as it splashed its way from the High Sierras to the brawling tributaries of the Sacramento below. At the completion of the march, the bandages were re- moved and the white man stood before a cave. Once within, gold, in fabulous quantities, seemed to leap out at him in its glistening. There it was, above, below and all about. The Chief placed a heavy nugget in his hand, re-blindfolded him and began the march back. Jim Holloway searched far and wide to find that cave again. But long before Charley the Shavehead died, Jim had dropped out of sight and was heard of no more.. As the years wore on, men singly and in groups had tried to wrest the Indian ' s secret from him and then from the mountains as well ; but in vain. When, at last, Charley the Shavehead, Great Chief of the Hat Creeks, was gathered to his fathers, the story sett led into a dim legend of the hills and valleys. Many years later, when from the blackened pinnacle of Lassen one could view a civilized, populated country for miles ; years after the Indian tribes had been deprived of their favorite hunting grounds and had become dependents upon their displacers, into a little northern California town there came an old man. Stamped was his weather beaten countenance with the mark of years. Silent and secretive was he. He spoke to few and spent but a few short days getting together a small but efficient pack outfit. Then he struck into the mountains to the east and north of Lassen. " Jim Holloway! ' someone suggested. Soon the whole town was agog. Could it really be he? Could it be the young man who had made the blindfolded march and seen the cave and the gold? Was he returned in his age to find what he had failed to find in his youth? Some scoffed volubly at the idea, some were puzzled and some were convinced. A week went by. The aged stranger did not return. Speculation and sympathy reached a high pitch and found expression in a searching party, which set out for the wild country toward which he had gone. A week later they returned. His pack animals had been found. But of him they found not a trace, neither then nor later. Who he was, where he had come from, whither he had gone, no one knew. Yet around the fires of the North on winter evenings, or in the cool twilight of summer, you will find those who will tell you in awed tones, " It surely was Jim Holloway come back to find the cave of Charlev the Shavehead. " m C49l ' H THE REDWOOD n Some Ideas ofSarly California Oracle By Walter Raven In order to understand the position of business in early California a brief recapitulation of early history seems advisable. When the missionaries first came to this State they found a land as barren of produce as any land could be. The peoples of the land were as ambitionless as any tribe I on the continent of North America. Sixteen Franciscan missionaries came up from Mexico I and, aided by a guard of soldiers, established the Mission San Diego at the site of the present city of San Diego on July 16, 1769. From that point, missions were built at regu- lar intervals along the coast. Considering the condition of the land and the state of the I peoples, the missionaries did more work than would seem § humanly possible during the next few years. The Franciscans I had to build the missions and their homes, till the fields, plant ;s crops, teach and instruct the Indians and at the same time do the countless small tasks that came with the upbuilding of each civilization. Besides being lazy, the early California Indians were gifted with an unbelievable stupidity. They never did quite comprehend why men should work when they could steal, or why a man should work when he had food. It was only through the stoutness of the defense of the soldiers, who were sent to guard the missionaries, that there was not more than one mission reduced to dust by the attacks of such Indians with the purpose of theft. It took a system of rewards to start the Indians to work and example to keep them at it. It was no uncommon sight in the early days to see the Padre in charge of a mission at work in the fields or doing a (laborer ' s work in building. After a few years the Indians learned to appreciate what they had worked for, and began to acquire the idea of working rather than stealing for their food. As the San Francisco Directory for the year 1852 has it, " The Indians learned to repose entire confidence in the Padres, and embraced with avidity the new religion. " Hours of work in those early times may surprise many gentlemen of industry in this day. To again quote the directory, " They worked eight hours in the twenty- four and received in return all of the necessaries of life, such as food and apparel, together with trinkets and rum, the latter being regarded as an indispensable article of diet in those days. " Because of the great cost, dangers to transportation and the uncertainty of trans- portation in the early days, all the necessaries of life had to be produced at the missions. This meant that the monks had to instruct and train the Indians so that after the period of training they were skilled craftsmen. This work of training workers is usually the labor of several generations and yet the monks managed well in a few short years. It is said that before 1800 a master weaver was brought up from Mexico City to the Mission Santa Barbara, and there instructed the :. ISO} II N a THE REDWOOD Indians in the art of weaving; so that it was not necessary to send away for these supplies. He remained there long enough to ground all of the weavers in their art. Other crafts were developed with as much care until each mission was producing all that was necessary for its existence. Robinson in his " Life in California Before the Conquest, " says of the Indians, " Many were carpenters, masons, coopers, saddlers, shoemakers, weavers, etc., while the females were employed in spinning and preparing wool for their looms, which produced a sufficiency of blankets for their yearly consumption. Thus everyone had his particular vocation. " If anyone will wonder at the repeated references to the missions and the Indians it will be remembered that up to this time there had been as yet no society, trade, industry or commerce away from the missions. They were the only spots of culti- vation and civilization in an otherwise desolate land. As yet the Indians had not developed enough initiative to exist away from the missions. Indeed they were often provided with proper means and dismissed, " but we are told that they invariably failed and that the natives sooner or later returned to seek the protection and guardianship of the Padres, after wasting their cattle and other stock. " There had been no definite need for money up to this time. Barter was the most convenient method of trade. Most of the peoples of the land had as yet no proper appreciation of money as such. Trade was limited to the calls of the occasional travelers from Spain, Mexico or the United States. Industry was limited to the needs of the missions and its people. A basis for all future trading, commerce and industry was being built up in the shape of a pastoral, agricultural and horti- cultural form of life. Shortly after 1800 the King of Spain began to hear stories of the promise of the new land of California and so divided the land up among his favorites as a sign of his bounty. The missions, as a ruling power in California, had begun to lose their prominent place. As was to be expected, the grandees of Spain, could not or would not be satis- fied with the simple fare of the monks and Indians. They needed delicacies in the way of food, entertainment and clothes. As the most of such delicacies were im- ported from Europe and Europe was in the habit of receiving gold or silver for her supplies, the new landed owners had to find an outlet and sell their surplus for gold or silver. Thus soap, cattle, horses, sheep, hides and furs were sold in Mexico, Spain and the United States, or to traders from those places. In many cases the new estate owners were hard masters and the only way to keep the natives on their estates was to bind them to peonage. For themselves they were often prodigal in their manner of living. Early traders bring back stories of such grandees wearing a thousand dollars ' worth of clothes and of paying bills of ten thousand dollars in gold. It will be easily seen from this how the gulf had widened between the whites and the natives since the early missionary years. Need for the new, wasteful owners may not be apparent upon first sight but California had already begun to produce a surplus beyond her power to use, and the quickest and surest manner of attracting traders and of opening trade routes was to offer fine prices for all goods. With the advent of the traders and trade routes in definitely marked lines, commerce began to spring up within the State. r 15 1 ■ i II 1 TJ THE REDWOOD Towns were established wherever needed, to act as reserve and storage points from which the whole of California might be supplied. California now needed only one thing to make her one of the trading terri- tories of the continent, viz., a denser population of industrious, careful people. This came earlier, to a greater degree and from a source almost unthought of. To quote the San Francisco Directory for 1850, " Early in 1848 a feverish excitement appears to have taken hold of the public mind, in regards to the supposed mineral treasures of the country. But it was worthy of remark that gold was the metal least thought or talked of. " Silver, quicksilver, copper, saltpeter, sulphur and limestone were the articles sought for. It is amusing to note from the same source that, " coal had been found near San Francisco, which, however, had the unfor- tunate quality of being uncombustible. " Gold was discovered in California in 1848. This attracted very little attention till the early part of 1849, when investigators began to come back from the hills with tales of the great riches of certain sections of the country. All California business was almost immediately suspended while the people began their search for gold. In a surprisingly short time the peoples of the world had heard, and had begun to pour into California. Wherever people are they want much the same things that they have enjoyed at home. In order to supply the wants of all these people a brisk trade sprang up between California and all the rest of the world and California was now in a position to satisfy all of her desires with gold. It was at this time that California enjoyed a period of prosperity then, and even today, almost unknown. Carpenters and skilled laborers of a similar class often refused fifteen to twenty dollars a day for their work. Banks, brokerage houses and great trading companies sprang into existence almost overnight. Some of these have existed down to this day. The majority of those who had come in the rush were of the pioneer American type, men of British Isles stock. Quite naturally there was not enough gold to satisfy everyone. Members of this American type had not the desire or means to recross the continent ; besides they looked at the soil and other necessaries for an agricultural life and found it to their liking, so they settled here. California had entered the third or large-scale agricultural stage of its development. The period of early California had passed. Mexico was to lose its hold and California was to declare its independence, and to be admitted to the Union. California of the early days passed thru the necessary steps that any state must, to secure any permanent happiness. It received a basis for all future development in the work of the Franciscan missionaries. It received trade and trade-routes thru the prodigalities of its Spanish owners. It received a denser, more industrious and more appreciative population thru the gold rush. As a product of these factors and its natural resources and geographical position, it is probably entering its last and greatest stage, as the shipping and industrial center of the western world. .-:. Is ] tfShe Coming of the Law Joseph A. Bonacina, Law ' 28 The origin of California Law must be sought in the evolution of the State into an organized expression of human society. Our backgrounds are the aborigines, the Spaniards and the Americans. God is the first law-giver. From Him the aborigines received the Natural Law, and to this in their humble, yet savage way they showed respect. They bowed to authority. They recognized their depend- ence upon a higher being which to them seemed to have been manifested in the sun, moon, and stars ; in the lives of birds, animals, and plants. They punished and rewarded their fellow creatures in proportion to their deeds. Then came revealed religion to specify and elevate the crudities of the unaided natural law. And with it, since it was Catholic and came from Spain, there came the Canon Law and the civil law of Spain. The Franciscans, therefore, brought Canon Law. They brought that adaptation of Roman Law to church polity which here, as all over Europe, had preceded and fundamentally affected the Civil Law. The Franciscans were pioneers in the colonization of California. They were naturally, therefore, the first to bring order, and order is nothing more than the observance of certain relations that exist between individual human beings, as well as those which exist among human beings organized into communities. The first law, therefore, was the law of God and of the Church. The coming of the Spaniards, and their subsequent control of California added to the law brought here by the Fathers. Military regulations preceded the adoption of the Spanish civil law, which was based upon the Justinian Code, dating back to 525 A. D. The Spanish law grew in California in proportion to the growth of Spanish colonial organizations. And then Spain lost its Central American seizures. Mexico asserted its independence from the Spanish government. California became a Mexican territory, but this did not bring about any serious changes in early Cali- fornia law. Mexico still clung to the Continental system of jurisprudence. The Spanish law still regulated civil actions and this remained even after the territory was formally admitted as a member of the Union. When California became the mecca for the American people upon the discovery of gold, it attracted immigrants from every state in the Union, who feared not the hardships of tedious journeys to the coast. It brought to the new territory varied types of human characters. They came and staked out their claims. They estab- lished communities and some temporary systems of law and order. It was at this time that much of the present California law grew out of customs. The mining industry became exceedingly important. It naturally became neces- sary to establish regulations regarding location and establishment of claims. The people created uses for the water in their mining activities and the rules they : 153} THE REDWOOD - A " adopted became the foundation of the present mining and water rights. What was for that time the unwritten law became the present written law of the State. In this law of custom there were commingled the principles that were true in the old Common Law of England. Of the three channels through which the old Roman law had come into California, namely : Canon Law, Spanish Civil Law and the Common Law of England, the last proved the most permanently important because it became the proximate basis of California jurisprudence. But the Common Law was often found unsuited to the purposes of the early Californians. To illustrate this matter, allow me to quote from Dean Orrin K. McMurray ' s article in " The Summons, " " On the Development of California Law. " " Though the common law of England was adopted as the basis of the jurisprudence of the new state, not every rule in that system became law. This is illustrated by the law regarding trespass and the duty to restrain cattle from trespassing. The English rule in respect to trespassing animals was that the owner was liable for their trespasses, where he could show no justification. But such a rule was manifestly unsuited to a pastoral society. To fence one ' s cattle in would often cost more than the value of the land. The California courts were early settled that the common law of the state must be held to be opposite to the English rule. " As we passed from the mining activities to agriculture it became necessary to adopt new customs, and though statutes were enacted to govern the new field, the early customs still expressed the law of the State where no legislative changes had been made. With a population that had increased from a few thousand to more than one hundred thousand from 1848 to 1849, nearly every semblance of the system of jurisprudence which then existed was swept away. Substitutions for this custom and that began, until little was left of the system which had served the early settlers of the State. In 1850, after California had been admitted into the Union, a statute was passed in April which formally adopted the Common Law of England. The State became like many others, one which practiced under the old English systems of procedure, in so far as there were no repugnancies to the Constitution of the State. Little of the old Mexican-Spanish law was left. The unwritten law of customs had been written and cases had been reported and the State thereafter began legal work under the Common Law. Yet the Spanish law, according " to our authorities, had some permanent influence on the question of community property. It had to be consulted in the decision of old land grants under the Spanish rule. The Common Law was, however, recog- nized as a permanent system. But it did not remain so. The Common Law was extremely technical. It demanded that a writ be pro- cured for this and for that. It did not allow the joining of causes of action which had arisen even from the same subject matter or the same injury. To a growing State it became a burdensome, tedious system which extended litigation rather than curtailed it. In its wake their came the Practice Act of 1850, which was a statutory modification of the Common Law. I54» THE REDWOOD it The Common Law actions and the distinction which existed between legal and equitable forms of procedure were abolished by this Practice Act, which was fol- lowed by the Practice Act of 1851. New York State, long recognized as the seat of legal wisdom, had been forced to break from the traces of the Common Law as far back as 1848. The rapid advancement of the State, its remarkable growth in production and shipping, and the accompanying entanglement of litigation were more than the Common Law system of jurisprudence could cope with, and New York had to change. New York provided for itself the Code system of pleading. It enacted a Civil Code of Procedure, a Penal Code, and Political Code. California followed suit in 1872, and this was a very important step in the legal development of the Golden State. The intent behind the adoption of the codes was to simplify pleading. The California code recognized the right to contract by women in respect to the con- veyances of their private property without interference from their mates. The codes enabled business to prosper and grow, and yet limited the powers of cor- porations, which were already growing from the seed that had been planted in the State ' s earliest period of existence. The California Code was edited by James H. Deering of the San Francisco Bar. It followed very closely the Code of the State of New York, which was likewise edited by a Deering, a brother to the California barrister. It is for this reason that many of the leading New York cases make valuable authorities in the establishment and solution of our own cases. The Code of Civil Procedure, written by Deering, was adopted on March 11, 1872. On the 21st of March of the same year the legislature of this State adopted Deering ' s Civil Code. The Penal Code, also written by Deering, was adopted the month previous, on the 14th of February, 1872. Since that time many amendments have been added. Old sections of the codes have been revised or more practical ones substituted. The Codes have kept abreast of the progress made by the State in the various enterprises and industries. At the present time California claims one of the leading and most thorough systems of jurisprudence in the Union. Yet underneath the system there are still vestiges of the Spanish law, and the Common Law. Barristers, in the absence of more suitable principles, are often found going back to the Spanish and Common Law rulings. And under all of these there still exists the law of God, and the truths of revealed religion.

And yet, oddly enough, it is only in recent years that scholars have arrived at anything like a scientific study of the facts involved and of their influence on the coloring and course of events. The field is still some- what a virgin one, even among scholars. The general public of the fairly educated is scarcely aware of it. I speak of the monasteries and of Western Monasticism and suggest that our California history gives us an opportunity for comparison which greatly promotes understanding. St. Benedict, the Patriarch of Western Monasticism was born toward the end of the fifth century and lived his mature life during the first half of the sixth century (480-544). During his life the disintegration and migration were fully under way. In that sea of floating population islands now appeared. These islands were called monasteries. About them, men began to settle and to practice first the useful, then the fine arts. About them cities revived or were found. They were the centers about which the re-crystallization of civilization and culture took place. They implanted and fostered our Occidental, Christian civilization. Obedience, the dignity of manual labor, a spirit of democracy were the lesson the Benedictines taught that rude age both by precept and example. Agriculture, the first condition of stability and the primary requisite for a state of civilization, they restored as a fact and pushed forward as a science. They cleared forests, drained swamps, introduced irrigation, they rotated crops, rested the land, imported and distributed seeds ; improved stock, established pisciculture and apiculture ; they , M i :-.- - THE REDWOOD built roads and bridges ; they exercised and taught men all the useful arts ; they were carpenters, masons, blacksmiths, locksmiths, spinners, weavers, embroiderers, gold and sliversmiths ; they were architects and engineers, painters and sculptors. For through them the fine arts reappeared. The charitable institutions of all sorts which mark our Western Civilization, originated with them. Academic training- reappeared and was greatly extended through them. They harbored the treasurers of the ancient learning. (See Marique, " History of Christian Education. " Vol. I.) Into a California, uncultivated and uncultured, came eighteenth century Fran- ciscans, true heirs of medieval monastic traditions. They dotted the land with monasteries which we call " Missions. " They began for us here all that their pre- decessors of a full thousand years before had begun for Europe ; transmitted all that those predecessors had transmitted. Although centuries separate the magnanimous labors of Junipero Serra and St. Benedict, their contribution to society was strikingly similar, and this similarity could be profitably studied so as to throw additional light both on the history of California and of Europe. The order of development here was the order of develop- ment there ; the spirit of the first development here was the spirit of the first development there. We moved and expanded from the first beginnings here, trans- ferring functions to other institutions as organization became more complex and diversified. So did they.

' ■ " ' ' " l ' " l 1 ' f57l .: THE REDWOOD T gmanization, Americanization and (California By Joseph J. Deacon, Arts ' 28 Y ever, in the course of history, has there existed a political unit so vast in its sphere of influence, so firm and centralized in its dominion and so efficient in its organization as was the empire strengthened by the sword of Caesar, consolidated by the genius of Diocletian and elevated to the dignity of a Christian State by the political wisdom of Con- stantine. Rome, the eternal city, reared on the banks of the Tiber by the hand of the fabled Romulus, long ere the sun of Athens had risen to its zenith ; Rome the dauntless, defending her walls against the armies of Tuscany ; Rome the invincible, overrunning and subjugating the peninsula of Italy and I L I spreading her power over the fair cities of Greece, hurling !

Li.. jmmm g u s jj ent j s t he matchless tongue of Cicero. Silent are the trumpets of Caesar and the tread of his conquering legions. Gone are the feasts of Lucullus ; the pomp and splendor of Augustus. Gone are all the works of Roman genius : villas, amphitheatres, roads, bridges, aqueducts — marvels of a technical skill in many respects equal, if not superior, to that of the Twentieth Century. Gone are the once proud cities of Gaul, of Spain, of Africa and of Asia which bowed to the mastery of the Caesars. All have moulded into dust and only fragmentary ruins remain to testify to the grandeur of the past. What then ? Has all this glory gone for naught ? Was it for nothing that Fabius baffled the skill of Hannibal ? Was it for nothing that Scipio stormed the walls of Carthage ? Was it for nothing that Caesar tamed the spirit of the savage Gaul ? No. Such is the Providence of Him who rules over the destinies of nations that, though ruin and desolation eat out the heart of an empire, they cannot obliterate its benefits. Many are the lessons which we of the Twentieth Century may learn from the history of Rome, and many too are the analogies which may be drawn between the political and social problems which confronted her and those which confront the thinking mind of the present age. The composition of the Roman Empire bears a striking similarity to that of the American Commonwealth. At the beginning of the second century of the Christian era, before the provinces had been decimated by pestilence and barbaric invasion, its population was about equal to that of the United States of the present day. Bounded on the east by the Tigris and the Euphrates, on the west by the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, on the south by the desert of Sahara, and on the north by the Rhine and the Danube, the Roman world embraced a heterogeneous and widely varying people. The grandest tribute to the organizing genius of the Caesars is the fact TEi :; THE REDWOOD that they caused this vast polyglot population to fight under a single standard, bow the knee before a single throne and unite for the weal of a single State. Nothing like it had ever been seen before. The fabled empires of the East were vast, loosely organized confederations which usually passed away with the passing of their founders. I have said that, when considered from an ethnic standpoint, the United States offers a certain resemblance to ancient Rome. But our task is not half so difficult as hers. Our immigrants come to us willingly to secure the blessings of liberty and wider human opportunity, and, for the most part are ready enough to submit to our laws. Rome, on the other hand, extended her dominions by conquest and compelled or lead the vanquished provinces and racial groups to submit to her authority, favor her language, follow her law, and to take on her traditions and culture. But force, of its very nature, is limited. Even Rome, great as was her supremacy in arms, could not have built up an empire by the sword alone. This her rulers were quick to realize, and herein lay their greatest strength. Their method was to grant a certain amount of local autonomy to the conquered provinces, admit their people to Roman citizenship, and to incorporate their culture and religion into the culture and religion of the empire. Opportunity for commerce and intercourse were to be created and preserved by arms. The American people like the Romans of old, are, in point of origin, a polyglot race, but it is chiefly in the case of California that we have assimilated anything like a foreign province. Let us see how we came by this rich and colorful land. In the Sixteenth Century, Spain was the great military and commercial State of Europe and her fleets cruised unchallanged through the waters of the southern ocean. In the reign of Elizabeth of England, this power received a terrible blow from which it never recovered. Although Spain steadily declined in wealth and vigor after the defeat of the great Armada, she retained her dominions in North and South America almost until the middle of the Nineteenth Century. Hardly had the Congress of Vienna settled the destiny of Europe when the Spanish provinces in the New World began to wrench themselves free from the mother country. The dilapidated government at Madrid could do little or nothing to check the general revolt. The astute and farsighted Canning, perceiving commercial advantages for England in the possibility of independence for the Spanish colonies, was quick to lend them his support and sympathy, and Monroe, following his lead, came forth with his famous doctrine. Mexico, inspired by her southern neighbors, rose in revolt, and threw off the foreign yoke, only to be doomed to chronic civil conflict. Texas, then one of the largest Mexican states, soon became filled with American pioneers, who, as soon as they were sufficiently strong, drove out their Mexican masters and set up an inde- pendent government of their own. In the midst of all this strife and turmoil, California, the fairest of the Mexican states, basked serenely in the light of the western sun, unmindful of the turbulence of the southern provinces. V ■ ' ' l59l THE REDWOOD It is possible that, had Mexico possessed a strong and vigorous government, she might have kept her hold on California, but even had this been the case, her per- manent supremacy in this most northern province would have been highly improb- able. The discovery of gold brought in a stream of adventurers from the eastern states, who had no intention of remaining subjects of an alien race. In 1850, these enterprising and energetic settlers rose in revolt against Mexico. There is no more pitiful commentary on the weakness and inefficiency of that unhappy country than the fact that the government at Mexico and the Mexican garrisons made hardly the slightest effort to put down this rebellion. It is not our purpose here, however, to render an account of the events leading to the separation of California from Mexico and her subsequent admission into the American Union. The fact we wish to record is simply this : the absorption of California into the American Commonwealth is the chief instance in which this country assimilated a foreign people en masse, and thus followed in the footsteps of imperial Rome. Texas and the Louisiana Purchase, to be sure, gave us foreign territory, but their cases do not seem to me as striking as California ' s. In California, the Spanish art and the Spanish traditions met and blended with the institutions and customs of America. It is not easy to indicate the united influence of these two elements on the character and habits of the people of California, especially since the Spanish element is gradually being erased by the influx of a new population from the eastern states. But a little reflection will make it clear that the influence of Spain is still strong in this great and far-famed State. From San Diego to San Francisco, and even farther to the north, the sainted names of her cities bespeak the ardent Faith of the pious Franciscan Fathers. The mission architecture is a product of Spain and Mexico. The free and open-handed hospitality of the Latin still reveals itself in the character of the older people of California ; and the Spanish families, who once ruled the State, have mingled their blood with the blood of the American immigrant. Rome became great through the assimilation and fusion of many peoples. But Rome usually did this in the case of whole provinces and groups. It is chiefly in California that Americanization proceeded by the twofold process of transforming both the individual immigrant and the previously existing group.

" The two brothers from jjfc, se l fRM Vermont " and paused as though reviewing once more a scene often recalled. " The Vermont Twins we called them on the ship coming out. I daresav they weren ' t twins, though certainly brothers. At any rate the ship ' s register showed that they had the same family name, and the few words they were overheard to say showed they were from Vermont. " Strange lads they were in a way. Do you know that on the long voyage down to Panama, across the Isthmus by rail, and up the Pacific Coast by boat again, they never once talked to any of the other passengers? They kept to themselves always, well-behaved and aloof. They attracted attention, of course, by the fact that they kept apart and there was some suspicion of them at first. But after a time they were taken for granted and only now and then did anyone make a reference to the Vermonters. " Once we had come in through the Golden Gate, then newly named, and landed in San Francisco, I lost all trace of them. " There followed the first few hectic days ashore and then, when we had out- fitted ourselves, we started for the gold fields. " I had drifted from place to place and had gathered enough gold to make me decide to take my present earnings to Philadelphia and later return for more. I made little pouches along the inside of my belt to hold my nuggets and dust — about $5000.00 worth. Everything was ready for my start to San Francisco, when I noticed the Vermonters passing through camp. " ' Have they been here long? ' I asked a man near me. ' In and out, ' he answered. ' Mysterious fellers, you know; never talk to nobody, only just themselves and then not much ; never spend no money, exceptin ' only for supplies. But they ' s a lot of talk about them strikin ' it ric h somewhere back in the hills. Nobodv knows. They just disappear over the trail and only come back for grub. Them young fellers means business and they ' s only out here for one thing, an ' I reckon they got it. ' " After a few days in San Francisco, I was aboard the boat for Panama. Out- side the Golden Gate I was walking the deck, thinking how my gold would help my family along and give me enough to put away for future use, — when I came ■,-■; I61J THE REDWOOD r. upon the two Vermonters. All down the coast it was the same story. No one ever saw them apart and they never talked to any one else. " One afternoon off the Mexican coast, I was startled out of my cabin by a cry of fire. Smoke was pouring out of the hold furiously and there was a mighty stir from stem to stern, passengers frantic, crew desperate. " After a time it became evident that we were doomed and the order was given to abandon ship. I went to my cabin and fastened on my belt, filled with gold, gathered up a few other belongings and came on deck again. About the life-boats, which were too few, all was confusion and disorder. When the last swung away I found myself behind. " On the deck forward were the two Vermonters. They stood with an open carpet-bag between them, looking down into it, with agony and indecision on their faces. " The ship took a decided lurch, while steam hissed through the smoke. A mem- ber of the ship ' s crew yelled, ' Jump overboard, ' which I did without more ceremony. " For a time I struggled on desperately, but no matter how I tried, I could not keep above water. Suddenly it dawned on me that it was the belt, the gold-filled belt, which was pulling me down. Reluctantly and as a last resource, I slipped it loose, and could feel it leap away from me on its way to the bottom of the Pacific. " When I reached the surface again, I found a piece of flotsam nearby and clambered on. The ship was more desperately enveloped than ever, but out there on the forward deck with their open carpet-bag still between them stood my two friends, their faces still torn with agony and indecision. " Suddenly there was a mighty lurch, a groaning and hissing, and the ship plunged down by the prow, leaving only a vortex of angry waters and bits of wreckage when suction had done it work. Later I was picked up and taken on my way " The old man paused and stirred the dirt uneasily with his right foot. " Somehow, " he said slowly, " I ' ve never forgotten the last view I had of that forward deck. " ::. M THE REDWOOD he Tacific Railroad Robert P. O ' Brien, Engineering ' 28 Californians of today may not be sufficiently aware of what Californians of yesterday achieved in building the California or Far Western section of the first transcontinental railroad.

" V 11 cat i° n of conditions must not obscure for us the magnitude TP I of that achievement during the rudimentary state of our de- ll velopment.

II Coast to Coast over what is now known as the Overland K II Route. RjN Two master strokes of human genius here present them- Ht Hk selves to us, the one in engineering, the other in finance. BB ai __ II Pioneering in two such widely divergent fields, four honest, hard-working, far-seeing merchants bore the brunt of the ridicule of the nation and, exhibiting insurmountable zeal and trust in their judg- ment, pushed the construction of the first railroad across the Rocky and Sierra Mountains to a glorious finish. Leland Stanford, Collis Huntington, Mark Hop- kins and Charles Crocker were the men who performed master strokes of finance and engineering, and overcame staggering obstacles in spanning a continent by threading the forbidding mountain ranges with ribbons of steel. In the February of 1832, before the country could boast of more than 100 miles of operating railroads, a small weekly paper in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in an editorial advocated the building of a railroad from the Great Lakes to the Pacific. This was the debut of the Pacific Railroad " idea " which claimed a fitful existence until 1862, when Congress passed the Pacific Railroad Bill. During the years that intervened between the introduction of the idea and the passage of the bill many of the most brilliant minds of the country were at one time or another interested in the project, and the net result of all investigations and opinions was rather against the project, than in its favor. In 1853 the matter had assumed such . national proportions that the Secretary of War was instructed by Congress to investigate, and ascertain the most advan- tageous route to the Coast. As a result of this move five parties of Army engineers took the field and when the reports had been turned in, five possible routes had been examined. Four of these are in use today by trans-continenal railroads. The conclusion drawn by these engineers was that the Southern route offered the most advantageous passage and if the Civil War had not intervened it is not unlikely that the first railroad would have been through the Southern States. The moving spirit in the work of starting the Pacific Railroad was a young engi- neer, Theodore Judah, who had been engaged as chief engineer of the Sacramento m THE REDWOOD Valley Railroad. He was thoroughly convinced of the possibility and need of the transcontinental road. From 1856 to 1860 he divided his time between educating the people of the West and the members of Congress to the feasibility of the proj- ect. He worked tirelessly at his task and his persistent efforts were beginning to bear fruit when the question of slavery appropriated such a prominent place in the Congressional discussions that the Pacific Railroad Bill was forced into the back- ground. Judah, undaunted, returned to California and undertook to investigate the mountainous country over which the railroad would have to be built. On a tip from a resident of Dutch Flat and with the aid of money raised in that town he dis- covered a much shorter and more practical pass than -that indicated in the reports of the Army Engineers some six years previously. Friends of Judah in Sacramento took the matter before Stanford, at that time a prosperous merchant of the Valley town and he in turn interested Hopkins and Huntington, who ran a hardware store, and Crocker, a friend, who had a small capital at hand. The four agreed to finance a survey of the proposed route, but would not be responsible for the formation of any company, unless the survev turned out exceptionally well. These men, to whom the people of the West are indebted for the first road across the mountains, have attained enviable places among the great men whom the West has developed. The " Big Four, " as they are known, performed miracles within the few following years until the comple- tion of the system. Huntington had a keen mind in financial matters and Hopkins fostered the funds which the former raised. Stanford was the executive genius behind the project and to Crocker goes the credit for getting more work out of the men under him than would have been possible under any other similar condition. All had proved success- ful in their own endeavors and as a combination they were so fitted that they worked " miracles " in carrying out their dreams. With the declaration of the Civil War the southern routes were excluded. But more than this, the war made plain the fact that the railroad to the Coast was more than a commercial asset. It was a military necessity. President Lincoln, being- urged by members of the Senate to build the railroad with government forces, replied : " The National Government has its hands full in carrying on the war. Private enterprise must build the Pacific Railroad and all the government can do is aid, even admitting its construction is a political as well as a military necessity. " Spurred on by this opinion of the President the " Big Four " formed a company in the summer of 1861 and Judah was dispatched to Congress to secure the passage of a Bill. His efforts proved successful and in May, 1862, the Pacific Railroad Act was passed, and signed by President Lincoln on the first of July. It provided for the construction of a railroad and telegraph line from San Francisco to the eastern boundary of California as the part assigned to the new California company, the eastern portion of the work being given to the Union Pacific Company. The bill gave the railroad a strip of right away 200 feet wide and financial assistance in the form of $1000 United States bonds at the rate of $16,000 per mile. This was raised to $48,000 per mile in the mountains and $32,000 per mile beyond the mountains. 1 4 Il :S I THE REDWOOD These bonds were first mortgage on the entire property of the company. It was further provided that the road should be built at the rate of fifty miles the first year and fifty miles each year thereafter, except that the rate was reduced to twenty miles annually through the mountains. Later acts provided that the road could continue its construction work eastward of the Nevada line until the eastward work- met that being pushed westward. As soon as it was certain that the road was to be built, opposition of the most pernicious kind arose and all but swamped the baby project. The Steamship Com- panies, which operated around the Horn, Pony Express Companies, toll roads and even the Sitka Ice Company began a campaign of propaganda, designed to prevent the investment of any money in the new venture, and the fight became so bitter that it was extended to the money centers of Europe whither the company went for aid. Even the press, which had been so loud in praise of the project before it was assured, now turned against it and only three papers in the whole of California came to the aid of the work. Money became so scarce that at one time the treasury of the company was without funds for seventeen clays . For a time it appeared that the company would be forced to go into bankruptcy. Discouraging rumors sponsored by prominent engineers had their effect on public opinion. Many fully believed the stories that the passage through granite barriers was more than human skill could overcome, and that, if the road were finally finished, the heavy snows reaching a depth of fifty feet at times, would make opera- tion of the road in winter a physical impossibility. All the materials necessary for construction had to be purchased on the East Coast and transported by vessels to the West. The journey around the Horn con- sumed from eight to ten months and the war had raised freight rates as much as 275 per cent. The journey by sea to the Isthmus of Panama and then overland to the Pacific was shorter but the rates was just as high, if not higher, so the gain in this method was negligible. At one time the transporation of steel rails by this latter route cost $52 a ton or one-third of the total cost of the rails. Labor was scarce, expensive, and inclined to drop everything and join any and all gold " rushes. " The laborers were nearly all miners and the work on the railroad was taken merely to furnish a " stake " with which they could prospect further for the coveted gold. Breaking ground for the road called for a gala gathering and all the notables of Central California were present in Sacramento, January 8, 1863 to witness the event. Stanford, the Governor, officiated, but the most effective of all the speakers was Crocker, the outstanding personality in the venture. His own words on that occasion paint him truly : " All that I have — all of my own strength, intellect and energy — are devoted to the building of this section which I have undertaken. " The first shipment of rails arrived in 1863. Until the completion of the road in 1869, the sea between the East and West Coast was almost paved with ships carry- ing supplies. There were times when no less than thirty ships were on the seas at a given moment, laden with material for the scene of action. The actual construction of the road was begun with a grim determination to conquer the Sierras at any cost. Work progressed slowly but steadily. For the 16 5 | THE REDWOOD .:. initial few miles beyond the first crossing of the American River, grading was com- paratively easy and by the last of February 1864, the road extended to what is now Roseville. Two months later trains were operating on regular schedule between Sacramento and Roseville. By the middle of the following June the line was com- pleted and operating as far as Newcastle, 31 miles from Sacramento. President Lincoln proved his good will toward the project at this juncture by handing down a most important decision from the viewpoint of the Railroad. Since the Government had agreed to pay four times as much for mountain construction as for the first few miles out of Sacramento, it became important to fix the point at which the mountain construction was considered to begin. Some of the members of Congress suggested that this point be fixed at the end of the first fifty miles of the road. The Supreme Court of California decided that the Sierras began 31 miles from Sacramento. The final decision was up to the President and he fixed the point just 7:18 miles from Sacramento. The amount gained by the company by this decision totaled more than a million dollars. Much litigation over these advances from the Federal Government, as well as money pledged by State and County authorities, drained the treasury and con- struction was curtailed during the winter of 1864. As it was, the winter proved to be one of the mildest experienced during the construction of the line. It was later pointed out by officials of the company that, if there had been no litigation and the rate of construction could have been maintained as it was before and after, the Western section would have met the Union Pacific at Cheyenne rather than west of Ogden. California would than have had control of the rich country of western Wyoming, Montana and Utah. During December 1864 the force of men employed on the road had dwindled to a bare 300 men. As circumstances improved and money began to flow into the coffers of the Company, the force was rapidly increased until by July the payrolls included some 4,000 names. Many of these were Chinese laborers who were turned to as a last resort in an effort to get satisfactory labor. The experiment proved a success and the road profited by the use of Asiatics. The only implements for grading at that time were the pick, shovel, black powder and horses and the Chinese proved to be the only labor that would stay on the job. Before the road was com- pleted the number of Chinese employed had grown to 12,000. By September the road was completed to Colfax, 55 miles above Sacramento and construction was being pushed ahead with superhuman effort. Camps were scattered all along the line as far as the summit and, before winter had set in, all the tunnels west of the summit were open and the summit tunnel itself was being driven from both ends. An especially bitter winter hampered progress at every turn. Snow covered everything, and even closed some of the tunnels, forcing the crews to abandon work. Heavy rains ruined the wagon roads, hindering the delivery of supplies, and food for the men was packed in on the backs of horses. Doggedly, refusing to give up, and fighting the elements every foot of the way, the builders pushed on twenty-five miles farther into the mountains by the end of the year. As the new year came on all forces were mustered for record-breaking {[66]} THE REDWOOD construction and it was even found advisable to sink a shaft to the summit tunnel and work the bore from four faces. The sinking of the shaft proved to be more of a job than was at first thought. Most of the digging was through solid rock and at times the progress was as low as seven inches a day. It was not until December of 1866 that the shaft was finished and work begun on driving the tunnel. Its completion was then consummated within a year. To sink the shaft it was neces- sary to haul a small hoisting engine to the place and the story of this task is a most interesting one. It took six weeks of alternate packing, rolling on logs, building roads and clearing brush to reach the summit from the end of rail. It is interesting to note that a moving picture company in duplicating this feat was content to stop after hauling a duplicate engine only 500 feet, even with the aid of all modern appliances. During the winter of 1866-67 the work on the tunnels went ahead at a rapid rate. The heavy snows did not affect progress as seriously as during the previous winter, but at times it was necessary to drill snow tunnels as long as two hundred feet to reach the portal of the tunnel itself. Dynamite, invented in 1866, was not yet available, and although nitro-glycerine had been known for many years, its use was not encouraged and was finally forbidden after a fatal accident in one of the tunnels. Rapid progress of the Union Pacific westward spurred the builders to greater efforts. Materials of construction and rolling stock were hauled over the summit on wagons and work of grading started in Truckee Canyon. The grade was being pushed in both directions and as soon the winter ' s snows had begun to melt, inten- sive operations were begun all along the right of way. By mid-summer, 1867, the first locomotive crossed the divide and the line was open to Summit before the end of the year. Work from Truckee east went ahead rapidly and in the middle of December the first construction engine crossed the state line into Nevada. In the spring of 1868 all forces were marshalled and the race for territory began between the two companies striving for the goal. The force of men was increased to 25,000 and the teams used on the grade amounted to some 6,000. Crocker an- nounced a program of a mile of grade a day and drove his men at a terrific rate. Twenty-five saw mills near Truckee were kept busy supplying lumber for the road. Some idea of the rapidity of construction can be gained from this fact. It took three years to build 157 miles of the road over the Sierras with a force of men averaging about 11,000. In the next ten months the final 555 miles were built with a force of men that did not average over 5,000. Terrible hardships were endured by the men in crossing the desert. Heat, hunger and thirst threatened progress, but these were all overcome and records of road building never equalled were performed by thes hardy pioneers in the most for- bidding of fields under horrible handicaps. The winter of 1868-69 proved the most severe of any during the constructional period and the cold inflicted as much suffering in the desert as the previous winters had caused in the mountains. The very ground froze and in order to carry on the grading the right of way was blasted almost every foot of the way. Supplies were [67] A THE REDWOOD halted in the mountains and only after the greatest efforts was the constant stream kept moving to the front. As the year 1869 aged, the work was redoubled and on the two sections now nearly at the meeting point was pushed on furiously. The construction parties vied with one another in miles of daily progress and a fiercer contest ensued. The Union Pacific triumphantly broke all records by laying six miles of track. The Central Pacific retaliated with seven but were bested by the Union with seven and one-half. Crocker, placing the utmost faith in the men who had carried on his work, boasted that he could lay ten miles of track in one day. He was promptly challenged by an official of the rival line and a wager of ten thousand dollars was placed. A day was fixed and with his picked band of men Crocker set out to win the bet. Eight Irishmen were chosen as the track layers and operations commenced at 7 in the morning before a notable gathering of prominent men of both roads. The rails were laid at the rate of 190 feet a minute and before the noon meal was served six miles of track had been laid. The remainder was easily accomplished. In the twelve hours of work ten miles and two hundred feet of track were laid and these eight men had placed 3520 steel rails. This superhuman effort carried the Central Pacific to within four miles of the meeting place and the remaining track was laid the following day. The last spike, a golden one, was driven at a great ceremony on May 10, 1869, seven years before the time limit allowed by the Government. Such intensive road building has never since been seen and our first transconti- nental road is our greatest and most memorable engineering feat in the development of the West.

By Edwin Coolidge, ' 09 l7i} THE REDWOOD ' :: c he Qame The pistol cracked and the field was cleared, A half of the game was done. The squads, dark browed with work and care, Sought a rest from the wind and sun. Then rose the sound of a merry chase ; An old ball of rags flew by, And eight small boys came in hot pursuit, Joy in each face and eye. Old clothes, bare heads and with happy hearts And bound by no rules of men, They jumped and ran o ' er the green and laughed. What a joy to be young again ! For theirs is life as it now should be, A life full of smiles and flowers, Of songs and trees and God ' s blue sky, Of friends and happy hours. A blast : and grimly the game goes on ; Intensely they smash at play. Is this then life as it now must be, At the dawn of manhood ' s day? Harold P. Maloney, ' 23. 172] ' I l ' " l l ' " l I 1 w 1 I n the early spring time of more than a century and a half ago an aged Fran- ciscan Missionary paused on the summit of a lofty mountain to gaze upon the expanse of land and sea stretching hefore his appreciative glance. A silent land and free from the marks of human habitation lay along the shores of a surging and passionate sea. Then sunlight changed to shadow and dimness to darkness. He had trudged his unbeaten way to a camping ground below and had fallen asleep with his fancy filled with the light — the golden light — of shining stars, and his mind filled with the glory and depth of their mysterious significance. He slept a peaceful sleep in keeping with nature ' s harmony about him, and as he slept a vision seemed to rise before him. He saw again the same outline of rolling land and surging sea, but what a change had come over the land ! Here were plains carpeted and checkered with the green that announces golden harvest and luxuriant with trees bending low with golden fruit. Cattle were peacefully grazing in the meadows and well-kept homes and out-houses bespoke conditions of prosperous stability. Now the vision became broader and more extended. Great cities composed of massive buildings of various sizes and diverse descriptions spread before him, while their paved streets mirrored scenes of industry and commerce. Within the cities there were massive cathedrals for worship and gigantic factories with thou- sands of employees, yet everywhere there seemed to be radiated a spirit of friendly hospitality and pleasant progress mingled with an attitude of intellectual apprecia- tion. With a start the dreamer awoke, and instantly the vision of a magnificent state, colossal in its present perfection and future promise, vanished. The empire of his dreams was gone, and the good Priest was confronted once more with the stern reality of an undeveloped land torn at by turbulent tides. As the Franciscan gazed upon his surroundings even the most remote reality of this future empire faded as a phantom into the valley of delusion. Such a well established community in this barren, uninhabited region was beyond realization in any appreciable period of time. Allow yourself to be carried along the stream of years for seventy-five or more and gaze again, with an attitude of tremulous expectancy, upon the ocean-washed coast of California. It is the same over which the Franciscan mused and dreamed. In some stupendous way, a marvelous change has passed over this land. It is the year of the celebrated California gold discovery, and seemingly over night the whole aspect of the situation had changed. Did some sprite with a magic wand transform the previous picture of inactivity and restfulness into a scene of activity and restless energy? a f73l THE REDWOOD Like a wild fire fanned by sweeping winds, the news of the discovery had trav- eled in an incredible manner. Gold became the universal topic of American con- versation. Political strifes and factional interests were forgotten in the insane desire to reach California. Overnight the traditions of generations were cast aside, and the early morning hours were witnesses to many a hasty departure. California had become the mecca for the weary, the bold, the adventurous, and the greedy of America. As time passed and the sweeping tide of humanity multiplied, their modes of travel became more numerous. The voyagers came by land and by sea. Braving the hardships and dangers of an overland trip, many expeditions were formed which traveled together for the purpose of mutual protection from bands of bel- ligerent Indians. Over the Northern, Central and Southern Routes they traveled with one unified goal in mind, gold. Others took passage on ships sailing from Eastern and Southern ports and eliminated some of the dangers and discomforts of overland travel. Over diverse courses and with varied interests they hurried on, and yet their motives in coming to this far distant land were similar. These motives were based upon one hope, one ambition, and one desire, gold. A study of the characters in this mad rush furnishes an outstanding example of contrast, because of the varied occupations of the individuals who participated in it. Here was the rough farmer who had left his family " back in the States, " while he set out in search of fortune. Here was the dapper city dweller, ill at ease in the raw surroundings. The man by the fireside was a scheming " crook " from New York. The individual beside him was only recently the sheriff of a Southern county. Of the two men who were talking together, one was formerly a college professor, while the other was once a tramp. The high and the low of human society met under equal banners. Although the status of the individuals differed greatly, yet the desire of the individual was the ambition of the community, the ambition of the community was the desire of the individual, gold. At the outset business pursuits were neglected in the mad rush for the gold fields. However, it was not long before enterprising individuals realized that gold could be secured by business pursuits without digging for it. By this gradual turn to business, industry was promoted, and the situation became more stabilized. Abundance of available wealth soon made it possible to develop the pursuits of agriculture to a high degree. City life grew with the influx of humanity and the abundance of wealth. In a very short time cities of vast proportions began to grow out of what had formerly been trading stations. As the seemingly inexhaustible and undreamed of mineral wealth continued to be unearthed, a new atmosphere of mental culture, refinement, great wealth and stability, which was evidenced everyw here throughout the State, must be attributed in the last analysis to California ' s magic lure, gold. If our Missionary had been permitted seventy-five years of added life, he would, in all probability have lived to gaze upon the gradual formation of that which he had evisioned. He had perceived the natural surface assets of the land, but the l74l secret of its hidden treasures had been beyond his anticipation. It was this buried treasure which placed the name of California upon the lips of every American. It was the stories of its golden treasures that stirred the imagination and aroused the thirst for adventure in the hearts of numberless men. It was the dream of unlimited opportunity because of the abundance of golden wealth, which turned attention to the latent possibilities in commerce and agri- culture. Gold it was that evoked a California culture within this hitherto barren frontier land. Golden ore had lured men, golden grain maintained them and golden fruit made the measure overflowing. The Golden Gate, the Golden State and the Golden West have not been mere poetical terms for us. Nor can the history of out- State be fathomed without the magic of that one, fourdettered word, — gold. IGHTEEN years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock the Spanish sailor, Viscaino, brought settlers to the Bay of Monterey. On the ship were two Carmelites. This early date marked the naming of Carmel River and the Santa Lucia Mountains. Long before this tales of cities of gold with their stores of emeralds and rubies reached the ears of Hernando Cortez. who immediately dispatched from Mexico expeditions to search for these treasures. As a result California, New Mexico and Arizona were discovered and explored. Chief among these venturesome parties was that of Juan Rodriques Cabrillo. To him must be attributed the discovery of California. A brave and noble son of Spain he sacrificed his life to spread her fame, and with his last breath ex- horted his captain to continue the task. From about 1822 until 1846 California remained under Mexican rule. Ambi- tious settlers from the eastern states had by this time founded their own com- munities and soon there rose political feuds and jealousy against the existing government. Americans declared their independence in 1846 and our forces, capturing Monterey and other places then claimed the whole of California as a territory of the United States. In 1850 this vast expanse of rich land became part of the growing Union. ACTIVITIES ears before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock the Um brought settlers to the Bay of Monterey. On two Carmelites.

Last year marked the beginning of a real effort to portray the social and more or less serious events of the Santa Claran ' s college days. This ambitious enterprise led to an inclusion of pictures designed to present the less fortunate predica- ments which now and then are bound to occur in every Freshman initiation as well as the happier moments that develop as the year proceeds. College life has its ups and downs. Along with the lighter depictions will be found those of more serious trend. The reference now is particularly to that division set aside purposely for the history and sc enes of the year ' s " Passion Play. " Without doubt this undertaking is distinctively an achievement of the students. Owing to the large cast, the crowds before which it is offered, and the many tasks to be performed, practically every student in the University had something to do toward its success. Their complete and self-sacrificing response merits whatever space this volume allows. So it is that the following pages, telling more by pictures than by words, slip benignly from the ridicu- lous to the sublime, unfolding as they go a panorama of pleasure not unmixed with labor, but with all of that a reminder of Ruskin ' s words: " You were made for happiness, and the world was filled with things which you will enjoy, unless you are too proud to be pleased by them, or too grasping to care for what you cannot turn to other account than mere delight. " V r: ffl v. I79J -; ;• THE REDWOOD Trollies :th the Nevada Game his- tory, and the Stanford Game a grim ordeal of the future, the evening of November 10th, 1927, found all concerned gathered together in Seifert Gymnasium. Yells and songs helped to stimulate the spirit for the approaching struggle. Then followed speeches by Earle Rey- nolds, President of the Associated Stu- dents, and others who were more par- ticularly responsible for the work of the team. In this latter regard, Gap- tain Bud Cummings delivered a spirited and impressive talk which all Santa Clarans will remember and which wholly removed whatever depression had prevailed until that time. Coaches Boland and Walsh spoke both of the past and present with their characteristic determination. With the completion of the formal part of the rally, the junior Class presented to the Varsity and the future athletic teams of Santa Clara eleven blankets. Thomas P. Ryan, Junior Class President, spoke of Santa Clara spirit, while under the rays of a cleverly placed spotlight the first Santa Clara Blanket slowly tumbled open revealing to the assembly the great white S. C. on a field of red. The remain- ing ten blankets were then presented to the Varsity. Honor it! II [SO] Following a different program than in previous years the Seifert Gymnasium became the scene of the 1927-1928 rallies. Because of the atmosphere and the direction, they took on the proportions of informal gatherings whose purpose it was to stimulate spirit of co-operation and confidence between the student body, the coaches, and the players. A general plan existed throughout both semesters. Songs, skits, boxing matches, speeches and yells, constituted the entertainment ; and here a word of commenda- tion should be given to all those who in one way or another assisted in making the rallies characteristic of Santa Clara men. The California Rally, College of Pacific, and Olympic Club, and others were occasions for such meetings. But besides gatherings for these particular purposes a few special features of the rally schedule were had. The greatest of these was Billy Burke ' s Smoker, which under the direction of the rally committee, was staged for the beloved trainer and boxing instructor. Members of the Athens ' Club and boxers of Santa Clara staged bouts for the instruction as well as entertainment of the students. Billie Burke will return next vear !

McKenna, as Jean Val- jean, won the sixth annual Dramatic Art Con- test. McKenna, who also captured the coveted laurels in 1925 by an excellent interpretation from Shaw ' s " Joan, " received as first prize a gold watch donated by Louis Lurie of San Francisco. The award was made by the judges because of the magnificent characterization dis- played by this competent Santa Clara per- former. Restraint and fire, in their proper moments, were the predominant elements in McKenna ' s portrayal. This is McKenna ' s last year of competition since he is to graduate in May. During the four years he has been attending college here he has especially distinguished himself as a speaker, actor and scholar. His continued success is our fervent wish ! Fenton J. McKenna Receiving the winning vote of one of the judges, Wray Griffith, in a selection entitled " The Man Without a Head, " won the plaudits and hearts of his hearers, though he just missed out on the final decision. In an original playlet, " Pasquali ' s Alimony, " a delightful and humorous sketch, Salvadore Sanfilippp won third place. Among others who competed and gave a creditable account of themselves were J. Raymond Deasy and Arthur Kenny in " Moonshine, " John P. McEnery in a scene from " The Emperor Julian, " J. Barrett McMahon in a part from " Ben Hur, " Andrew Brennan in a selection from " Richelieu, " and Carrol Kirby in a bit from " Alymer ' s Secret. " Under the direction of Father E. M.

Resuming again debating negotiations with St. Mary ' s College of Oakland, the Senate, Senior debating organization of the camuus, arranged for a dual contest which was held on the evening of December 5, 1927. The results were very successful for Santa Clara, both teams being given a unanimous victory by the judges. To St. Mary ' s were sent Senators John A. Spann and Fenton J. McKenna who argued the negative side of the question : " Resolved : That the two-thirds majority rule should be done away with in the Democratic Convention. " The evening was a fiery one, filled with heated discussions and pertinent questions, which made the debate extremely exciting for the audience. Contesting in the Lounge Room of Seifert Gymnasium on the same evening, and upon the affirmative side of the same question, Senators Joseph J. Deacon and Napoleon J. Menard proved conclusively to the honorable judges and a capacity house that the two-thirds rule should be abolished. These debates concluded for the year all outside con- tests. Returning again to affairs of the campus our atten- tion centers upon the Ryland debate. This encounter has always been considered the climax to forensic en- deavor in the debating year, which at the same time establishes for another term the superiority of either the House or Senate. Choosing a subj ect for the 1928 Ryland, the House of Philhistorians proposed to the Philalethic Senate the following proposition: " Resolved: That Herbert . . ' . . I Hoover would make a better President than Governor 5 v m i Fenton J.

After much consideration the Senate, whose right it was, chose the negative side of the issue and selected for their team men who upheld the traditional worthiness of their assembly. Senator John A. Spann, member of last year ' s Ryland team, Senator Thomas P. Ryan, a Ryland debater from the House, and Fenton J. McKenna argued the question for the Senate in the order designated. Representing the House of Philhistorians were : LeRoy J. Lounibos, Arthur Kenny and Salvadore Sanfilippo, who took upon themselves the heavy responsibility of maintaining the affirmative. There have been few Ryland debates in which so much campus and outside interest was manifest. Few debates were more absorbing for the listeners or speakers. And though at an early stage of the contest the arguments prescinded from personalities and took on the proportions of a general discussion as to political platforms and principles, yet these ideas were ever kept entertaining. The decision of the judges was acclaimed as just though, difficult to render owing to the fine argumentation on both sides. The judges decided after much consultation that the debate of the evening was won by the Negative, while Representative Arthur H. Kenny was voted the best speaker, with Senators McKenna and Spann second and third, respectively. Charles R. Boden, ' 23, was chairman. Both houses are to be sincerely congratulated for their capable handling of a subject that demanded so much of personal opinion and yet was presented in so unbiased a manner. 187!

A few scenes of ivhat the varsity experienced on the ivay over and ivhen they got there. he Stage Qrew ramatics at the University of Santa Clara have long been known as the most outstanding amateur productions in collegiate circles on the Pacific Coast, and especially after this year ' s " Passion Play. " Its portrayal was witnessed by thousands of people from all over the state. But in connection with these dramatic successes of the University there is an important organization whose cooperation with the actors and directors is an absolute necessity. To the students on the campus this group is known as the stage crew. The stage of the University auditorium is complete and up-to-date in every detail and under the supervision of William I. Boland, Senior in the College of Engineering, the most spectacular and impressive stage effects were produced in order that the Santa Clara Passion Play might be most successful. During the heavy work between scenes of the sacred drama the stage men were dis- tinguishable by their attire. They were dressed in neat coveralls of a uniform color, jffc something new, but of such advan- tage as to certainly justify the ex- , k Ml penditure.

" THE REDWOOD ! he Builders of the Mission i N A material way the University has this past year expanded con- siderably by the addition to the campus of a wonderful students ' chapel, the new Mission Santa Clara, faithfully patterned after the old, which has risen up from the ruins of that famous Mission de- stroyed by fire in October, 1926. During the latter part of Sep- tember the building of the new church was started. It was made possible only through the generosity of the students and friends of the institution scattered throughout the State. Constructed along classical lines the new edifice on its exterior presents a most imposing picture of simplicity and beauty. In the Sacristy is a place for relics of the old Mission. The side altars have individual sacristies which enable the celebrant to obtain close at hand the necessary vestments for his Mass. In the course of the year and during some of the vacations the following students lent a hand in the construction of this magnificent new Mission : Tyler Sidener, Wally O ' Daniels, Bud Cummings, William Belloli, Paul Torelli, Matthew Susanj, Sid Steward, Bud Hall, Esteban Parra, Eustaquio Arias, Alberto Dent. Arthur Prag, Philip Bagley and Davies Karam. H. C. Miller was the contractor. Just a couple if workers! J Dinner Time! Q i l " ' l i ' A J£ fell THOS. P.

DELANY CHAIRMAN ENGINEERS ' DANCE THE REDWOOD Legal tyrat IDance The first dance of the 1928 social season to take place off the campus was held in the Lanai of the Hotel Vendome on February 4th by the Legal Fraternity of the University. The ballroom of the hotel was transformed into a moonlit garden with sprigs of wild cherry and ivy forming the background. Music was furnished by jerry Lannigan ' s Or- chestra and the selections rendered mingled with the garden scene and soft lights to make the affair a dance that will linger long in the memories of those who attended. Instrumental in making the Legal Fraternity Dance go beyond the expectations of everyone was Gerald Chargin, who headed the decora- tion committee. John L. Quinn, of the En- gineering Society, had charge of the lighting- effects. Engineers ' !r Dance Immediately after the students returned from the Easter holidays they were feted by the Engineering Society, which gave a splendid dance at the Hotel Vendome. This was the first of that number of dances which concluded the social year. Under supervision of Nicholas K. Delaney, Chairman of the Dance Committee, the affair was of the usual brilliance, as are all the social functions of this organization. The lighting effects and the decorations were in accord with the time of year in its spring hues and fresh- ness. The music was furnished by one of the best orchestras on the peninsula, and although the expenditure for the entertainment was great, still the attainment of the Society ' s ob- jective — to give everyone a most enjoyable evening — was realized. t [9 1 PR.E-MED DANCE J jj0 ■ ):, JOSEPH M C NEALY CHAIRMAN B.A.A.

The hall was very beau- tifully decorated, and owing to the small mem- bership in the organization it meant a great sacrifice on the part of all. In accordance with past custom the pre-medicals made this affair of the 21st of April an invitational one, assur- ing therefore that the floor would not be over- crowded. The success of the undertaking was due in large measure to the efforts of President Bo- land and Committee Leader Delbert De Smet. These men were assisted by Horace Wald, Henry Sanfilippo, Cyril McDonald, Jos. O ' Con- nor, Ernest Chargin and the Decoration Com- mittee headed by Peter Knego. Socially speaking the University closed on Saturday evening, April 28th, at a dance given by the Business Administration As- sociation in the Lanai of the Hotel Vendome in San Jose. Members of the college depart- ments and their friends gathered at a farewell dance that was a blaze of color and splendor. A committee headed by Joe McNealy, Bill Burke, Harry Morey and Warren Ahart had complete charge of this affair and much of its success is due to the diligence of these men. The orchestra was the same as that which per- formed so ably for the Legal Fraternity earlier in the year, and their selection met with the same hearty approval. The decorations were of light shades in order that they might harmonize with the prevailing spring atmosphere. 19 2 8 ■ " J , i L f: 193} THE REDWOOD Jt I . 4 ©he S en i° r r R reat w hen a boy first enters Santa Clara he soon finds himself in an atmosphere quite different from that to which he has been accustomed.

Round about monas- teries the great European Universities developed. And from medieval monasteries came the medieval drama. The Passion jPlay of Santa Clara is a revival of that drama : The Passion Play of OberammefiWu a survival. Junipero Serra and his companions, on January 12, 1777, established at Santa Clara a Franciscan monastery which carme to be known as Mission Santa Clara.

The angelic chorus is heard again as the caravan sets out on its journey. QL f sy ii 3it( JJ There is a lapse of thirty-three years -between the Prologue and Scene I, which is laid in the Council Chamber in the Palace of Caiaphas, chief of the High Priests of Jerusalem. The city is in a turmoil over the threatened triumphal entry into Jerusalem of a certain Nazarene, who, it is said, is about to proclaim Himself King of the Jews. The priests learn that Hej is the same " Whose coming was made known in Bethlehem thirty-three years before, and foretold more recently by One crying out in the wilderness: ' Prepare e ' he way of the Lord!

He leaves Dathian and the Priests to join the others at the Last Supper, after he has assured them that he will betray the Nazarene to them at the Gate of Bethphjage. T he High Priests, led by Caiaphas, then hold council, and this council resulfs in the decision that the Nazarene must be put to death. K ° l! v - — • .- j CioaJ f (T l3 € © A few hours are supposed to elapse before the next scene, which is again the Mount of Olives, but at night. The Apostles come from the Last Supper, fearful of what the Master has. told them of his 1 coming betrayal. They also discuss the other great features of the feast, namely, the institution of the Holy Eucharist. While they are thus occupied Peter rushes! into the scene with the tragic news of the betrayal by Judas, and the scene closes with the faithful ones ' prayer for the safe deliverance of their Master. The fourth scene is set in the throned room in the Palace of Herod Antipas, Tetrarch of Galilee. Herod is much worried over the added incursions of the Romans upon his realm, and he bewaws the sleepless nights he has had as the result of his execution of John the Baptist A papyrus from Pontius Pilate, Roman Governor of Jerusalem, arrives stating that the case of the Nazarene has been sent to Herod for final disposition, the Nazarene being of Galilee.

The courtyard is filled ing, noisy, clamoring popu- expected news that Herod Nazarene.

This intelligence throws the mob into further disorder and rebellious rage. Caiaphas and the Hi jh Priests enter and demand the presence of Pilate and his Court. A flourish of trimpets announces that the Court is about to convene and in another moment the Governor is seated on his throne. Caiaphas acquaints Pilate more fully with the refusal of Herod to pass sentence on the Nazarene, and then Pilate orders that rhe Divine Victim be placed on the judg- ment stand. Again the brilliant radiance (appears. The mob turns in that direction but with shouts and cries of derision. Pu4te examines the Prisoner for a s econd time and can find no guilt in Him. He appeals to the rabble for a remission of the sentence, but they angrily refuse, demanding the release of the prisoner, Barabbas, instead. Pilate hesitates, doubting, and oiice more argues with the Priests and the angry mob. The Apostles, who are gathered together in a corner of the courtyard, follow the action of the scene with alternate hope and despair. The play now Q-n : Tf D G I104I reaches one of the most dramatic of its ' , ' many climaxes, and the tension of the situation is mighty. Again the demand ofAth ' e multitude for the release of Barabbas in place of the Nazarene is as terrible as fe is actual, and it is here that the weak Governor, no longer able to withstand their cries, and fearing an unfavorable report in Rome, releases Barabbas. Tie; goes through the show of washing his hands of the blood of the innocent Victifjiand delivers Him up to be crucified. In the sixth scene the Way of the Cross is portrayed in its awful reality. The scene represents a roadway on the apprqach to Calvary which is shown in the dis- tance. The Apostles, all save Judas, are gathered together in a little group, at a gateway in the center of a stone wall. Fyom the city of Jerusalem comes the dull murmur of the rabble, angry and frenziec as it follows the Savior and His burden- some implement of torture. With tear-stained eyes the Apostles watch the approach- ing procession and as it draws near, Jol n closes the gate and they crouch below the wall in silent grief .

But they spurn him and cast him aside, now that their foul purpose is accom- plished. In a frenzy of despair he casts the thirty pieces of silver at their feet, and in a fury of awful curses he rushes away to hang himself from a tree. It is fear- some and appalling, this madness of Judas. One stands aghast as the soul of the wretched man is laid bare, and a great pi.ty comes at the terrible tragedy of it all. The last scene is laid in the Temple of Jerusalem, before the Holy of Holies, and it is the third hour of the crucifixion. Unnatural night has fallen on the city and, the populace has fled in terror to the Temple. The earth quakes, the thunder roars and lightning flashes. A soldier enters with the garments of the Christ which he has won at casting lots. Caiaphas and the Priests come to the Temple, and unable to quell the terror of the populace, they order their arrest. But before this can be accomplished, Pilate, covered with fear and shame at what he has done, rushes into the Temple and begs protection at the hands of the Priests. He is spurned by Caia- ,..;vv ; ;;,.■; % ;il v ' V.: .-;:r ■■■■ ' x. ' Vv ' ■ a if s) to61 ' j xG Sl3 l --._. -., x j phas who orders the soldiers to seize and hiassacre the populace. As they are about to obey his command, there is another terr tfic roll of earthquake and roar of thunder and wind. The columns upholding the Iiely of Holies are seen to sway, and as the Veil of the Temple is rent in twain th e columns fall and crash to the ground as though in vengeance against the awful tragedy. Caiaphas and the Priests flee in terror, followed by the frenzied mob, anrlks Pilate falls upon his knees and buries his face, jagged lightning flashes reveal fhe distant Golgotha beyond the ruins of the Temple. Silhouetted against the angi y sky are three stark crosses, silent testi- mony of the tragedy that stands against ah mankind. The Apostles enter, having fled to the Temple in their fear, and PilatW turns to them for forgiveness. A mighty hush prevades the scene as Peter speaks to Pilate. He foretells that the Faith He died to spread through all the world sh; 11 yet shine on the world and rule from Rome.

The incidents in the Life I I of Christ have been so ar- raii-ril, iln ' plot so hinncil, , ,. 1 that one is carried through the different scenes of the g jj|§ Passion with an almost magical skill. When Matt- f , hew narrates the different circumstances of the Last f V - - Supper to his father, Jech- onias, one feels that he is actually present at this farewell repast, and he cannot but be impressed with its tremendous solemnity. And so, too, one goes forth with a mingling of fear and love to Gethsemane. The prayer of the Saviour, the traitor- ous kiss, the rudeness of the soldiery, the wickedness of the High Priests are so realistically suggested that the presence of the Divine One is not required. And when Herod Antipas commands the Nazarene to stand before him, the actual presence of the Christ is felt rather than missed in the glow of the Holy Light that radiates the scene, suggestive of the imagined character. In the scene before Pilate the Holy Light is once again more effective than if an actor imper- sonating the Master stood before the Roman Governor to receive the jeers and derision of the Jewish populace. The living, breathing, pulsating Presence is made manifest by skillful and adroit use of words, acts and lighting suggestion. Kl foKD Q [io8] Again the effect of the moving, staggering, burdensome Cross showing above the walls on the roadway to Calvary is mor| admirably impressive than if a human figure were seen staggering under its wejfcht. And so it is throughout the play to ffte ' Very end, when three crosses appear on lightning-swept Golgotha. The suggestion of the Divine Presence seems more reverential and effective than would an tctor ' s portrayal, no matter how perfect his artistic touch. j It has been remarked by many who have witnessed the Passion Play of Santa Clara that the cast contains no female characters. This may seem the more striking by reason of the fact that the women of iha Gospels are so dramatically interesting. Mary, the Mother of Christ; Mary andWMartha ; Mary Magdalen and the Holy Veronica are so intermingled with the chief incidents of the Passion, that it has occurred to many as one of the unavoidable limitations of Santa Clara ' s wonder- ful play. But these holy women are in mu :h the same position, in the sacred drama, as that of the character of . " K TV— - e Saviour.

OBERAMMERGA Santa Clara is sometimes called thfe Oberammergau of America, and the Play America ' s leading Passion Play, and not without reason. Oberammergau the world-famous Alpine village has a Passion Play which has been produced at recurring intervals of ten years during three centuries. People come to see it from all parts of the world. It is not a commercial venture, but a religious and artistic effort. Close relations have existed between the Oberammergau players and Santa Clara almost from the beginntr g of the Santa Clara Play. In 1923 Mr. Anton Lang, the leading actor of Oberammergau, sent personal greetings to the Director, cast and Student Body of Sanra. Clara. This year he has done the same, and other prominent actors have sent greWngs to those playing the corresponding parts in the Santa Clara Play. This is a unique recognition of the Santa Clara Play.

He is a nWmber of the Bohemian Club, San Fran- cisco, and received his theatrical training] in the Santa Clara dramatic tradition. On the occasion of the last presentation of the play, in 1923, the hope was expressed by the then University authorities that Santa Clara might see her way clear to produce this play at recurring intervals of about five years. Some people, outside of official circles! even suggested that there be an annual presentation, together with the building of a separate theatre for this express purpose. Such a thought, however complimentary, was never seriously entertained for many and manifest reasons. But would be able to produce her Passion PI tion is in keeping with that desire.

W. C. Gianera, S. J. Advisor Chisholm Treasurer Student Body cActivities The semester of 1927-28 found Earle J. Reynolds, of the College of Business Administration, guiding the destinies erf the Associated Student Body during the quarterly meetings of the Student Congress. The regime of the latter has now extended through three years with greater attainments to its credit, and more efficiency and satisfaction than seems to have been accom- plished under the previous system. Various tasks undertaken by the Congress in the way of helping the students during their pep rallies and entertainments were : The appointment of a committee to take charge of dramatic events and speeches prior to the St. Mary ' s football game ; the handling of ticket blocks in the " Little Big Game, " at Kezar Stadium ; and the choosing finally from among its members those who would constitute the Central Committee in charge of all publicity for the " Passion Play. " In these respects special meetings of the association had to be held. Alterations in the Student Congress Constitution had to do with the awarding of numerals to all Freshmen earning them in a major sport. Likewise amendments regarding the appointment of managers, and the distribution of letters were passed. The personnel of the Student Congress each year is to include, besides the Presi- dent of the Associated Students, representatives respectively from the Senior, Junior, Sophomore, and Freshman classes, as well as the president of these di- visions ; also the chief yell leader, and manager of football, basketball, and baseball ; then one member from each of the following campus organizations : the Legal Fra- ternity, Engineering Society, the Mendel Club, Business Administration Associa- tion, and the Block S. C. Society. Besides the usual representative from the " Santa Clara " it was deemed advisable to this year admit the director and moderator of the " Passion Play " to facilitate the publicity of the latter. 9] THE REDWOOD f: I Pi B §91BH . r. ■;■■ ' ■; ' " -I • " : K • ; : ' -: j : ! .

There is need for a medium between the study and the application of the principles learned. Such is one purpose of the Legal Fraternity. The 1927-1928 school term was begun with the initiation of sixteen Freshman lawyers in Seifert Gymnasium on Sunday evening, September the 19th. Besides the Moderator, Fr. John B. Ferguson, S. J., Fr. John A. Lennon, S. J., Dean of Faculties, was also present and addressed the members of the Fraternity. The committee in charge was headed by Joseph A. Schenone who was assisted by George L. Malley ; the entertainment committee being in the care of Leslie Keating. The outstanding task of the season which was undertaken by the Legal Frater- nity, however, was their handling of a speaking tour in the interest of the " Passion Play of Santa Clara. " _ While the motive was a most worthy one and much positive good re- sulted from the effort, it was not without profit to the speakers themselves who were able in this way to address public audiences of varied sym- pathies. The experience was wholesome. The dis- f m I tricts covered included San Jose and vicinity, San Francisco and smaller towns along the penin- sula. Director Edward Preston Murphy, a mem- ber of the Fraternity, was of course the lead- ing speaker. Others who helped him and took much of the responsibil- ity of making good the RnwARii P.

Then followed the Optimist Club, and at San Mateo the Knights of Columbus were verbally reminded of the coming " Passion Play of Santa Clara. " Referring now to the internal activity of the Legal Fraternity we find that prominent speakers of the year who brought out interesting and daily occurrences in the practice of the law were William A. O ' Brien, Assistant United States Attorney for Northern California districts, and Professor H. S. Armstrong, of our own Law Department.

February 4th, 1928, marked the date, and the Hotel Vendome the place of this season ' s festivities. Thomas P. Ryan was appointed head of the dance committee, with Leslie Keating taking care of the program, assisted by Ian Hunter and Leonard Reeg. Gerald Chargin was in charge of the decorations which always do much toward the pleasure of the evening. The music being of great importance was necessarily entrusted to a graduate of Santa Clara. In this regard the Legal Fraternity consider themselves fortunate to secure the service of the orchestra of Jerrv Lannigan, A. B. ' 26. The programs were finished in black leather with the insignia of the Fraternity on the cover. .i 7l ■ he business Administration cAssociation Although the Business Administration Association is a comparatively new organization on the campus it functions with the efficiency that generally comes only after various courses of action have long been practised. One of the year ' s most important developments came through the efforts of Fac- ulty Advisor, Professor E. J. Kelly, to establish an Honor Fraternity to which members of certain high scholarship standing would be admitted. This was to be done with a view to gaining recognition from a national organization and thereby obtain help for the students after graduation. Two dances were held during the year. The first came the night of our football victory over Stanford, the second on April 8, 1928, at the Hotel Vendome. Joseph McNealy was chairman of the committee managing the latter. Officers of the Association for the year 1927-1928 were Wayne O ' Brien, Presi- dent ; Howard Butler, Vice-President ; Stanley Quinn, Secretary ; Albert Shea. Treasurer ; and Frank Schuppert, Sergeant-at-arms. :1 Heagerty, T. Bouret O ' Daniels, H. Mahoney, J. D. Butler Cunningham Kopp Fatjo Berg, R.

The past year has been one of special effort within the organization in the way of preparing scientific papers and then having them read at meetings. Another salient feature of the pre-medical men ' s association has been the spon- soring of many instructive lectures by prominent physicians and surgeons of the bay region. One of the chief speakers of the year was Dr. Milton B. Lennon of San Francisco, Neurologist and Professor at the University of California Medical School. His talk dealt with the " History of Medicine " and was one that will be remembered by all that attended the meeting. Several papers on scientific subjects were prepared throughout the year by students in the Club and some of the more prominent ones were Peter Knego ' s treatise of the subject " Blood, " and another on " Johann Mendel, " after whom the organization was named, by Delbert De Smet. A banquet was held by the Mendel Club in the early part of September, during the course of which Professor Ballanger, the Club ' s faculty advisor, spoke to the members on the subject of Biology. Two dances were given by the Mendel Club during the past year. One was held in the Seifert Gymnasium midway in the fall semester and the other in the spring session, at the Hotel Sainte Claire, San Jose. X 3.1j i: ' ■:■ GlLLICK Sanfilippo, H Krag The chairman of the committee handling the first social event was James Riordan, to whom much credit is due for making the dance an exceptionally delightful and entertaining affair. En couraged by their initial success the members of the Club made extensive plans for another such enjoyment toward the end of the school term. Owing to the small number of men in the organization it was encumbent upon each and every one to employ every spare moment toward the completion of final arrange- ments. President Edward Boland was the chairman and apportioned the work to be done in a commendable manner. The ultimate success of the dance was attributable, however, to the real co-operation within the Club. ; [ija] t THE REDWOOD Debating Societies NCR the first days of the found- ing of the University of Santa Clara one primary activity in the ege has been debating. While this ict is true of most educational groups, is distinctively so in the case of operated by the Society of Jesus. The reason for this lies in the fact that within all Jesuit controlled col- leges the subjects of logic, rhetoric and oratory have an important place in the F. COPELANII, S. J. Moderator " House " j. B. Ferguson, Moderator " Senate " curricula. Hence it follows that with such courses holding the outstanding posi- tions, work in the form of debating and oratorical exhibition is so utilized that the student may be able to apply in a practical way the principles he has mastered in the classroom study. This has been the case at Santa Clara. With a success that has proved time and time again a valuable training for a man in the business world she has used debates since the very beginning concurrently with her curricula. So it is no wonder that on the campus of the institution various organizations among the studentry are devoted entirely to forensic tasks. Generally according to the number of years one has been in attendance and also considering scholarship there are three classes of debaters : those belonging to the Philalethic Senate, to the House of Philhistorians, and to the Stephen M. White Society. The first named is given over to the debating activi- ties of the upper classmen of the University. After a glorious record of many years, this organization met early last fall and instated the officers for the approach- ing year. Those chosen to take up these responsibilities were Victor Diepenbrock, Vice-President ; John E. Hurley, Recording Secretary; Fenton J. McKenna, Corresponding Secretary, and Ian B. Hunter, Sergeant- at-Arms. Rev. John B. Ferguson, S. J., was President. Among the most important debates held in its cham- bers were discussions on the questions, " Resolved : That the New Marriage Law is a Beneficial Regulation, " and, " Resolved : That Governors of States Should Not Have Pardoning Powers. " Outside of the Ryland Debate the A. V. COGHLAN, S. J. Moderator " Stephen M. White " i:- 1 £. THE REDWOOD II Victor Diepenbrock Vice-President " Senate " crowning " point of the year was reached when represen- tatives from the Senate defeated St. Mary ' s College of Oakland in a dual meet, Decemher 6th, 1927. The question under consideration was, " Resolved : That the Democratic Party Rescind the Two-thirds Majority Rule. " At Santa Clara, where one of the con- tests was held, Senators Napoleon J. Menard and Joseph J. Deacon successfully defended the negative. At St. Mary ' s Senators John A. Spann and Fenton J. McKenna, taking the affirmative side, were likewise victorious. Also open to upperclassmen is the House of Phil- historians. The officers chosen for the 1927-1928 term were Leroy Lounibos, Clerk ; William Gallagher, Sec- retary ; Edgar Thrift, Treasurer; John Maher, Librar- ian, and Walter Raven, Sergeant-at-Arms. Rev. Ray- __ mmm ____ _ mond Copeland, S. J., was appointed Moderator of the assembly. Fr. Copeland, himself a Ryland Debater in the past, was able to arrange some very interesting sessions. Topics disputed during the year were, " Resolved: That Capital Punishment Should Be Abolished in Cases Decided by Circumstantial Evidence, " and again, " Re- solved : That Political and Social Causes Rather Than Religious Causes Were Responsible for the Protestant Reformation in Germany, " then lastly, " Resolved: That the United States Should Subsidize the Merchant Marine. " Many forceful speakers were developed in the course of the year through the experience gained in these encounters. A similar organization to these two and restricted to Freshmen only is the Stephen M. White Debating Society. It was this year under the direction of Fr. A. V. Coghlan, S. J. This year ' s election found the following new men installed as officers : Sherman Leahy, Recording Sec- retary ; James Gallagher, Corresponding Secretary, and Anthony Morabito, Sergeant-at-Arms. Subjects for argument were, " Resolved: That Inter- collegiate Football Promotes the Best Interests of the College, " and, " Resolved: That Labor Unions as They Now Exist Are on the Whole Beneficial to the United States.

" These men undertook the very responsible task of seeing that the sacred production " - was played before capacity houses, and that those who attended should find everything as convenient as possible. Besides the great incidental details, such duties involved the sale of tickets at the window, ably managed by Wayne O ' Brien, the assignments of students to take care of the traffic, ushering, and the contents of the programs. In the way of assuring the director and cast that thousands would witness their performance this committee, headed by Earle J. Reynolds, inaugurated a speaking- tour which was ultimately left to the capabilities of the Legal Fraternity. One of the most persuasive talkers in this behalf was Ian Hunter, of the Law Department, who addressed many San Jose clubs. So for the whole 1927- 1928 school term and es- pecially during the month of the Play this organiza- tion functioned without interruption. As a conse- quence of this, and in view of the fact that a similar group will of necessity be formed for each " Passion r t life.,. Play " of the future, it has been deemed no more than just that a place should be made for it in the proper section of The Redwood. There is no little honor accruing to the men who gave so unsparingly of their time that this pro- duction might be the great- est dramatic feature in Santa Clara ' s history. Ian Hunter Ik ' University Publications 1 I With the largest stuck University student t along other lines of ' H the largest student body in the history of its Collegiate Annals the body and alumni looked forward to a development endeavor connected with the institution. Not least among these were the university publications " The Redwood, " the official annual volume, and " The Santa Clara, " the weekly school newspaper. Up to a short tune ago these two school organs were of the average due to a small student body and a fair amount of interest. During the past two years the attention not only of the students but even of the alumni and friends of the University has been called to the exceptional advance made by Santa Clarans in things scholastic and athletic. The dramatic achieve- ments of two, three and four years have terminated in Clay M. Greene ' s master drama " The Passion Play of Santa Clara " ; significant debates have been won, class specimens of every nature have been of the high- est calibre. Of our athletic prowess the same may be said. Prob- ably the first of the University ' s publications to be affected by this " renaissance " was The Santa Clara. From a five-column six-page bi-monthly it began its development by being published weekly. Then in a few weeks it waxed to a flourishing six-column pub- ication. Advertisers both local and national expressed desire to appear in its columns and the Moderator was forced to establish The Santa Clara a regular seven-column six-page weekly. In the meantime the paper was increasing in work as well as interest and a journalism class was inaugurated under the supervision of the Moderator, Father Casey, to care for this need. Today The Santa Clara specializes in sport, literary and news articles which have brought praise from many of our well known news- paper men. The Redwood, too, has seen its best year so far in the 1928 edition. No expense has been spared to entice the attention of our alumni and students to new interests in their Alma Mater. Two features appear in the 1928 Redwood: The art work, which, although simple and dignified, has brought forth much praise ; and the sport section, which has been enlarged and vivified by innumerable pictures and other features. Albert M. Casey, S. J. Moderator of Publications n t-T he (r RedwQod .:! The many features of the 1928 Redwood, Annual Publication of the University of Santa Clara, will speak for themselves in the pages of this book. Suffice it to say that much labor and expense has been expended in an honest effort of the Redwood staff to publish what they think to be the best annual of which they are capable. Insignia for senior staff members of the 1928 Redwood have been given this year for the first time. Two members of the staff were eligible in Alvin Wolf, Editor-in-Chief and Victor Diepenbrock, Liter- ary Editor. The other members of the staff, although not senior members, are worthy of much praise. Those who are accustomed to peruse the pages of this University Annual from year to year will find that in keeping with the policies of advancement of the school publications the 1928 Redwood has been expanded some fifty pages to meet the necessities of new sports and new organizations, instituted during the past year.

Bras Bradley Moro? IN BURG Hoffman Butler, J. Ken he Qhoir ecause of the fact that it never has an opportunity to compare itself with singing of a like nature from other school or churches, our own choir is so easily taken to he quite the ordinary accomplishment when in reality it performs a very important function of campus life. The singing at the various masses and at Sunday evening benediction requires much practice, and therefore takes the time of those who belong. Of the masses sung during the year the outstanding ones were the Mass of the Holy Ghost, the Requiem Mass for deceased Alumni (composed by Pietro Yon), the services on the occasion of the final vows of Father Shipsey, S. J., and then the Solemn High Mass at the Baccalaureate exercises. This last mass was also coincident with the dedication of the new Mission Santa Clara, begun and com- pleted during the current school year. For the past few years the choir has been under the supervision and direction of Father A. V. Coghlan, S. J., and it is entirely through his efforts that perfection has been approached. With- out more than just good talent to work upon, Father Coghlan has developed splendid harmony, being neither too loud for our small chapel, nor yet so soft V: as to lose any of its effect. This year ' s tenors were Alfred Ronstadt, Paul Vredenburg, Harold Mor- oney, Fred DeLongchamps, John Bradley, Arthur Kenny, Frank Sabala, John Butler ; and the basses, Maurice Hoffman, Charles Bras, Charles Heininger, Rae Steinheimer and Arch bald Aranda.

His continued association with the student memhers has been productive of splendid musical accompaniment for all the University productions given this year in the auditorium.

Of course the musical triumph of the season was achieved at the " Passion Play " but other notable successes were occasioned by the First Friday exercises, the Owl Oratorical Contest, the Dramatic Art Contest, and the Ryland Debate. The " Pep Orchestra " furnished some jazzy tunes at the various rallies.

Difficulties which began with the destruction of the Sanctuary quarters by the Old Mission fire were not mitigated during the present school year. The members of this honor organization showed uncommon unselfishness in spite of these difficulties and were seldom admonished for want of care in the service at the altar. Father Albert M. Casey, S. J., Moderator of the Society, has words of highest praise for all. Due to the selectivity of this body all had frequent opportunities to serve at Mass, and few there were who did not avail themselves of the occasions of serving in emergencies when they arose. The exactness observed in the manner of serving was noticeable in many in- stances especially on solemn occasions, such as the Mass of the Holy Ghost, which was a public function held in the parish church. Gerald Harrington as Censor was outstanding in fidelity both in things apper- taining to his office and in serving. Many others deserve praise for singular merit during the past school year. [146] The Sodality, made up of selected students of the University, aims at ren- dering special devotion to the Blessed Virgin. Reverend John P. Moot . S. J., is the Moderator of the organization and this year engaged various members to also help him in small matters pertaining to the office of Chaplain. In this manner the 1927-1928 Religious Survey was conducted most efficientlv.

With an executive board consisting of John Blackinger as president ; Stanley Quinn, secretary ; Albert Shea, treasurer, and John Connolly, moderator, the Managers opened the social season for all departments by holding their annual dance early in the year in the Seifert Gymnasium.

Later on this organization conducted similar pep gathering for the encouragement of the basketball squad. The management of the traffic during the production of the " Passion Play " at the auditorium was likewise a task for the Block Men. They had complete charge of regulating all motor ve- hicles, assigning parking space as well as to keep the main thoroughfares clear. Immediately after Lent the Block S.

ATHLETICS n introduction THAT the University of Santa Clara enjoyed a most suc- cessful year of intercollegiate athletic competition is a foregone conclusion. The various teams did not win so- called championships, but each unit, whether it was the football eleven, the basketball five or the baseball nine, gave splendid accounts of the Broncos ' mettle on all occasions, and when vic- tory was not the result, the character of opposition which the Santa Clara teams put forth was always of the nature and quality which brought praise and respect in spite of a defeat. INAUGURATION of the " freshman rule " by the Santa Clara authorities appeared a drastic measure in that it weakened the varsity teams for 1927-1928, but considering the move relative to the future, it is looked upon as a medium which shall, starting next fall, make it possible to turn over well-trained material for the varsity squads of the approaching seasons and thus insure Santa Clara teams of the highest caliber. IN successfully combating the strongest opposition on the Coast, the coaches have very diligently and loyally worked with their men and have produced teams worthy of the tradition of Santa Clara, and in so doing have won the confi- dence and a cherished place in the hearts of the student body. S THE finale, therefore, of a successful year, this Chron- icle of the 1927-1928 calendar is presented, with the hope that it will stimulate and foster that spirit so necessary for the success of teams under stiff competition. n ' i i ' " i i " I i " ' i i " - ' i j r ffi53l THE REDWOOD !- ' :. y FOOTBALL n Coach Adam Walsh uiing touchdown against St. Ignatius hen the fact is considered that Coach Adam Walsh had a very limited amount of material to build his 1927 football machine with, and furthermore, that he was denied the use of freshmen this year for the first time and that he was forced to meet two of the strongest teams on the Coast in the first two games ; then the record which the Broncos achieved can be taken as most noteworthy. Injuries kept the ' squad in a bad way most of the year, but when the Stanford game rolled around the team was in good functioning order and as a result beat Pop Warner ' s men and es- tablished the Broncos as a football power. A successful invasion of Hawaii was another highlight of the season. Joe Boland, from Notre Dame, joined the staff as assistant varsity coach and it was largely his work with the linemen that the Broncos had such a stubborn defense. Adam Walsh, head coach and Director of Athletics, added further laurels to his already brilliant record in bringing about a vast and noticeable improvement of the Broncos ' foodjall destinies. His men are well versed in the Notre Dame system and with a large number of fresh- men to augment next season ' s team, the student body is confident he will lead Santa Clara to further glory in the football world. " THE REDWOO Qalifornia Qame Making their initial bow of the 1927 season, the Santa Clara football men faced the University of California Bears on the warm afternoon of September 24th, and after a close and thrilling battle lost by a 14 to 6 score. The Broncos were the first to score. After the kickoff both teams resorted to punting and Simoni of Santa Clara having the better of the kicking, the Green Wave took possession of the ball on California ' s 10-yard line. From this point a pass, Barsi to Captain Bud Cummings who was standing on the goal line, brought the score. After failure to do anything through the Mis- sion line, the Calif ornians assumed a passing attack which brought cm the two scores and victory. It was in this game that Gnido Simoni estab- lished himself as one of the best punters on the Coast. Schenone and Caresse, new men in the line-up, played the entire game at guard and p - ave wonderful exhibitions. 3D Top row, left to right — Blackinger (manager), Leonard, Koller, Kerckhoff, Granucci, Terremere, Ahart, Simoni, Chisholm, Donohue, Regan, Burke (trainer).

After a weird game the local players left for home on the short end of a 52 to 12 score. The charges of Adam Walsh, badly weak- ened by injuries received in the game the pre- vious week, started well and put over the first touchdown of the game in the first five minutes of play, but the score was not allowed. This break seemed to be a serious one affecting " the attitude of the team and from that point on the southerners had things very much their own way until the last ten mintues of the game. Herbert Haakinson, substitute, was injected into the fray at this point and pulled the team together whereupon two scores were tallied. Barsi passed, a Trojan tried to intercept but batted the ball into Granucci ' s arms, who ran across the line for a score. Another pass, Haak- inson to Cummings, scored. Simoni continued with his excellent punting in this game, one kick sailing in the air for more than sixty yards. Haakinson, in for a short time, ran the team exceptionally well.

In this encounter. Herb Haakinson, the new quarterback, made the first kick after touch- down to be registered by the Broncos up to this time of the playing season. Scores were made in each of the four previously played games, yet all remained unconverted. Had Haakinson failed to produce this kick, Santa Clara would have been defeated. The Bronco score came as the result of a Nevada fumble recovered by Vin Caresse. On the following play Haakinson tossed a pass to Captain Cummings, who stepped across the goal line. Little Herb then converted the score and warded off defeat. This all happened in the first five minutes of play. Nevada scored when Bailey, halfback, made a beautiful sixty-five yard run through a broken field. The Broncos were badly crippled, Hassler and Fawley, flashy halves, did not make the trip.

The Broncos, as the result of a last quarter drive came out with a 12 to 6 victorv. Richard Hassi Anthony Valine — End Because of the fact that Santa Clara had dropped the first two games of the season and that the Gray Fog eleven representing St. Ignatius had made a laudable early season record, the San Francisco team was pointed and very determined to win over Coach Walsh ' s men. The game was stubbornly fought, as can be taken by the scoreless tie which existed at the end of the first half. Both teams played very orthodox football in the first and second quarters, not elect- ing to take any unnecessary chances. The play con- sisted for the most part of a few line bucks and then a punt. Punting honors were evenly divided, whereby neither team could gain an advantage. er Play resumed in the third period much as it had existed all during the initial half until Big Rod Chisholm broke through the Gray Fog line to block one of Barron ' s punts. The ball rolled toward the Santa Clara goal line with Chisholm and Barron, the Saint player, and a host of Broncos in hot pursuit. Chisholm got his hands on the ball but lost it again and it bounded across the line where Mc- Govern fell on it for a touchdown. The uninterrupted ninety-three-yard march which Ter- remere, Fawley, Hassler and McCormick put on in the last quarter brought the winning score, since St. Ignatius scored soon after McGovern ' s touchdown. This march was the most thrilling part of the game, for slowly but surely the Broncos advanced to the Gray Fog goal. Line bucks by Terremere and Fawley and end runs by McCormick and passes from Hassler to Mac on their right side of the line brought the ball to the 10-yard mark, from where Fawley went around left end to a touchdown. fi6oJ .:: Tatific Qame Stockton was the scene of Santa Clara ' s decisive triumph over the College of the Pacific eleven on the afternoon of October 15th. The Green Wave charges of Coach Walsh ran six scores over the goal line, the contest end- ing with a 36 to 6 score. The Santa Clara coach used all his regu- lar squad during the game, else had the first string men played more, no doubt a larger score would have been the outcome. The first score came when as the game was just a few minutes old, Valine recovered a Pacific fum- ble and Dick Hassler threw a pass to McCormick who ran a few yards for the first six points. Just a few minutes passed and McCormick counted again, this time after making a beautiful fifty-five- yard run through a broken field. No scores were made during the second period and the half ended, 12 to 0, favoring the Broncos. Touchdown number three was made early in the third quarter, Big Al Terremere carrying the ball over. Soon after this Hassler, playing safety, caught a punt and negotiated some sixty-five yards to score, but a Bronco was ruled offside and the effort was in vain. Captain Bud Cummings contributed the fourth score which came after a series of long runs by Marty Miller. Miller was used a lot in this period and averaged 10 yards every time he carried the ball. Guido Simoni brought the local score to 30 points and soon after, Captain Cummings added the final mark by means of a short run. Bud Cummings, Simoni and McCor- mick worked the ball fifty yards on line smashes to the spot from where Cummings carried the pigskin over. It was in this game that Fawley was injured and forced to remain on the bench till the Hawaii games. Dick Hassler, ill and injured for two years, showed up well and looked like the Hassler of old. However, an injury the following week put him out for the season. Walter Roller — End Al Terremere — Full ¥ fi6ij THE REDWOOD Joe Schenone — Guard n Stanford Qame ecause they played football the way they were drilled to play and because the hitherto magic name of Warner ' s Stanford team meant absolutely nothing to them, and further- more, because they had the power and ability to deliver with a touchdown at the necessary moment, the Green Wave charges of Adam Walsh defeated the Stanford Cardinals on November 12th by a 13 to 6 score. The absence of several first string backfield men from the Bronco ranks gave the victory the value of a still greater accomplishment. Hassler, Fawley and Haakinson, backs, and Ahart, tackle, were con- fined to the hospital list with injuries. Stanford started its second team and found re- sistance at the start and was forced to punt. Simoni returned the punt and for a few minutes the game developed into a kicking duel in which the Bronco kicker had a decided advantage. This brought the ball in mid-field with Santa Clara in possession. Captain Cummings started the fireworks with an end run good for twenty-three yards. A few line plays followed and the little Bronco captain went out and took a forward pass thrown by Kenny McConnick from right under the noses of three Stanford backfield men and ran the remaining fifteen yards to the first score of the game. Just as the half was ending Stanford tied the score. Vincenti ' s run deep into Bronco territory after catching a pass and a line buck scored. Stanford ' s first team, which was resting the first half, started fresh in the third period but could not penetrate the Bronco defense. Falk, moved from end to quarter, kept up Simoni ' s good punt record which gave the ball to the Broncs in Stanford territory. Falk passed to McCormick over the goal line, drop-kicked the extra point and won the game. THE REDWOOD r St. ' (Clary ' s Qame Another Little Big Game went to the St. Marys collegians of Oakland when the Santa Clara Broncos came out on the short end of a 22 to score in the contest staged in the Kezar stadium November 26th before a large crowd. The score itself might point that the Gaels had an easy afternoon at the expense of the Mission gridsters, but nothing such is the case. The game was hard fought throughout, as is characteristic of St. Mary ' s-Santa Clara battles, and even though the Saints had three touchdowns and a safety to the good, they were not sure of their ground unt the final whistle blew. Both teams played the game with several regu- lars on the absent list, but with their presence the outcome could not have been much different. St. Mary ' s was more or less presented with a touchdown at the start of the game when one of the Saint linemen recovered a ball which was badly passed from the Mission center and St. Mary ' s had possession on the half -yard line. After three tries a score was effected. Two forward passes to Frankain, Saint end, completely baffled the Santa Clara defense and brought two touchdowns and with conversions the score read 20 to 0. A safety in the final period, when Falk was tackled behind his own goal line ended the scoring for the day. Santa Clara was placed in a bad position early in the first quarter, when Simoni, premier punter on the Coast, was forced out of the contest with a badly injured eye. Roderick Chisholm was beyond all doubt the star of the game. His playing was marvelous and he certainly ended a brilliant career in truly All- America fashion. v Guido Simoni — F Mvles Rf.gax— End •3); ) Ken McCormick — Half TT U I 6JI THE REDWOOD Olympic Qlub Qame The annual battle with the Olympic Club can be truthfully called the hardest fought game of the 1927 season. The Clubmen with an assortment of former Ail- American players won out in the end by a one touchdown margin, 6 to 0. The game was played at Kezar stadium in what was a half fog, half rain condition of weather. A fumble on the Bronco ' s 20-yard line gave the San Franciscans the chance they needed and from this juncture they started a hard drive for a touchdown. The Club players made one first downs and with ten yards remaining started on another. For three downs the Broncs held the powerful Clubmen in this one position. Kutsch stepped back to pass but all the receivers were covered, and since it was fourth down he took a chance and succeeded in just making the goal e. Except for the time when Kutsch slipped over the goal line, the Santa Clara defense was air- tight. Simoni and Terremere intercepted passes, Captain Cummings and McCormick recovered fumbles, and Valine, Chisholm, Granucci, and Bud and Ed Cummings made a host of tackles and thus thwarted all the efforts of the speedy Kaer, McKee and Len Casanova. 19 2 8 . ' i i ' " i i " ' i i ' a Fresno State Qame aking no chance of laying the squad open to further injuries with the St. Mary ' s game only a week away, Coach Walsh in meeting the Fresno State eleven played a goodly portion of his second string men and up to the final thirty seconds of play had the game in hand with a 6 to lead, but the Bulldogs of Fresno rallied by throwing a pass to a touchdown just as the timekeeper was ready to announce the end of the game and the failure to convert saved the day for Santa Clara by preventing a defeat and ending the encounter in a 6 to 6 tie. Captain Cummings did not see any action, his place being taken by George Barsi. Barsi played an exceptionally good game and his selection was a wise one. The Broncos made their touchdown early in the final quarter after a concerted drive from the Staters ' 33-yard line. McCormick and Barsi, in a series of line plunges, reached the 16-yard line. From here Falk tossed a short pass just out of reach of the Bulldogs to McCormick, who scored. The drop-kick failed. Soon after this score Miller made a long run and another score was in sight, but after this the Fresno defense stiffened. t: Tyler Sipener — Center 6 5 ] ;■ ' ■ w THE REDWOOD riri -J % , ... ,p-.- :5i Top: Miller cutsback fur five yards.

Qame In the first post season game under the regime of Coach Adam Walsh, the Santa Clara Broncos won from the strong Hawaii Athletic Club aggregation on Christmas Day in Honolulu by a 26 to 7 score. This was the first game of the Honolulu invasion, the second being scheduled for January 2, 1928, with the famous University of Hawaii Roaring Rainbows. The Santa Clara party which made the trip to the islands included exactly two elevens, Rev. Edm. Ryan, S. J., Coach Joe Boland, Head Coach Adam Walsh and Mrs. Walsh. That the Broncos not only won both games, but falso captured the hearts of the entire populace of the islands is evidenced by the wondrous praise and hos- pitality which was accorded the visitors. 4 Asst.

The attend- ance record for Hawaii games was broken and in a brilliant, thrilling last quarter drive, in a game crowded with the fastest playing imaginable, the Broncos put over a touchdown and won 18 to 12. It was the first defeat the Rainbows suffered this year and the first game in several years which they lost on the islands. Valine caught a pass to make the first score, Simoni and Miller made the other- two on line bucks. Miller ' s score was made in the last six minutes with the score tied. Captain Cummings, be- cause of his sterling per- formances, in leaving the field was given the greatest ovation ever accorded a player in Hawaii. The whole squad played and it was the best game of the entire season. Trainer Billy Burke Yell Leader Dan C. Bardin (•9} TH E REDWOOD FROSH frC : Coach John L. " Pat " Connolly :ores against Stanford Frosh Santa Clara had an organized freshmen eleven this year for the first time. Com- pliance with Pacific Coast Conference rules made the first year men ineligible for the varsity. John L. " Pat " Connolly, former star end under Coach Walsh, served as the coach of the yearlings and his ability as a coach was shown by the wonderful record which the young Broncs made during the season ' s play. Pat ' s biggest task was to get these new men well grounded in the intricacies of the Notre Dame system. As can be expected the players did not fall rapidly into line with a system for- eign to them, but after a few weeks the team rounded into shape and Coach Connolly had one of the best Frosh elevens on the Coast. The squad scrimmaged with the varsity about twice a week, and toward the end of the season proved to be a good match for the varsity men. The squad included Captain Tassi, Jaqua, Axt, Rooney, Farrell, H. Mettler, Manwell, Rowland, Martin, Casanova, Alexander, Leahy, Fox, Martinelli, Moran, Ehlert, H. O ' Daniels, Oliver, Welsh, C.

It was more or less a hectic affair, the local Babes losing by an IS to 8 score, after a couple touch- downs had been declared null and void. A few weeks later they came back and gave Stanford ' s Frosh a decisive beating. The young- Cards were only able to make one first downs and that with the aid of a penalty. Against the St. Mary ' s Frosh the Mission pea-greens put up a great battle. The Saints intercepted a pass to score, did not convert but a Colt was offside and the point was awarded to St. Mary ' s, who thus won 7 to 6. In yards made from scrimmage the young- Saints were far outclassed, Connolly ' s men amassing more than twice the total the victors did. Santa Clara scored on a lateral pass. It was one of the most perfectly executed and beautiful plays ever seen on Mission Field.

IN SPITE of many obstacles at the start of the train- ing season the Bronco cage team, before many games had been played, was recognized as a capable, well-drilled organization, one that would hold its own against any of the strongest quintets on the coast. Evidence of this is gained by pursuing the record of the team for the season, which shows vic- tories over such strong opponents as California, Stan- ford, College of the Pacific, the Olympic Club, St. Mary ' s and St. Ignatius. Such a list of triumphs is one that any basketball club can be proud of. THE FACT that the University ' s athletic authorities decided to adopt the freshman rule to take effect during the seasons of 1927-28, make it impossible to increase the size of the basketball squad over that of last year. Only the men who were left from the team of a year ago were eligible to play, the incoming freshmen being organized into a separate unit. This cut the size of the squad and altered the plans of the coach, who, with a heavy and difficult schedule facing him, intended to carry a large enough group of men so that just a few would not be compelled to go through all the games without rest. No new material coming up from the rest of the student body and the absence of freshmen brought on the exact result which from the first it was the plan to avoid. THE ABSENCE of the captain, who was on a post- season trip with the football varsity and an in- jury to another star player wrecked the team play of the squad in the opening weeks. When the captain returned it was like starting practice all over again, but the five men who carried the burden throughout the season rapidly rounded into shape, starting off with the Stanford victory and made a great record up to the time of the St. Mary ' s series, when the strain of too much basketball had its telling effect and the ancient rivals took the annual series after a bitter struggle. n I«73l : Standing — Dykes (Coach), Boland, Regan, Connolly, Pacheco and Moroney. Seated — Vukota, Reynolds, Gough, Captain Barsi, Sherman and McNealy. he Varsity A veteran squad answered the call of Coach Harlan H. Dykes early last winter when the preliminary work for the 1928 season was instituted. All of the players returning from the team of the year previous had the ad- vantage of one season ' s training under Coach Dykes and this proved to be a big feature aiding the progress of the Bronco five, which was otherwise hampered by the loss of incoming material from the freshman class, making the personnel much smaller this year than last. The schedule, which was drafted at the close of the 1927 season, included in quick succession, contests with the strongest fives in the Bay region without a single easy game or breathing spell in between. The coach had to plan accordingly and to face such a program was indeed energetic and ambitious. Beginning practice during the latter part of October, the foundation was well- laid for the successful season which was to follow. Every afternoon the squad re- ported for instruction and only for the fact that Captain George Barsi was detained with the football team, the cagemen showed great signs of improvement over then- form of 1927 and were ready for the tough schedule upon the approach of the Christmas holidays. ; 74} THE REDWOOD .X George Sherman earned a place in the reg- ular line-up this season. He saw little service during 1927 because of a broken hand but stepped into one of the forward positions from the very beginning " of the season and played the whole of practically all the contests. Coach Dykes made another change in the line-up, sending Frank Schuppert to his old position at running guard from the forward post. He was the key-man in the Dykes ' of- fense and his early showing indicated that he would have a great season. However, he re- ceived an injury in the second game and was kept out of several of the games. He played a few minutes in the California game but was in- jured again in the first game with St. Ignatius and was forced to retire for the season. Tim Connolly and Jock Moroney were reassigned to their old po- sitions a n d c o n t i n u e d with the bril- liant record they set up in ! 1927. f M k, Itawfc- Zmm fymmm0Li f Captain George Barsi Captain Barsi, after returning from the Hawaiian Islands took charge of the team on the court and directed the attack in an efficient manner. Coach Dykes developed in Jack Gough, one of the outstanding forwards on the Pacific Coast. He was high point man in practically every game and had an impressive average of twelve points a game for the season. In addi- tion to his shooting ability he speeded up the team-work by his clever floor play. The above five men, excluding Schuppert, played the major part of all the games. Every one of the group will be back again next year. Vukota, forwards ; Joe Regan, center and Wil- liam Boland, and Carl Pacheco, guards, were the reserves. Coach Harlan H. Dykes a r ' 175! THE REDWOOD u Sodality Qlub Qame The Santa Clara Sodality Club quintet furnished the opposition for the Broncos ' first appearance before the student body on the evening of January 5. The game was played on the Seifert Gym court and the Missionites walked off with a 49 to 19 victory. Called the first game of the season in reality it was the third. An all-star team The clubmen played well but were on the defensive most of the first half and the early part of the second half against the su- perior passing game which the Broncos nut on. and the Naval Reserve fives of San Jose were met during the Christ- mas holidays and Har- lan Dykes ' team was returned the winner on each occasion. The game with the Sodality Club did not start as fast as was ex- pected but after a few minutes the m e n found the range and led by Jack Gough, piled up a lead that proved to be too much for the visiting club to overcome. Jack GouGH-Forward line to make a total of twenty-five points. This in game. Tall, Tim Connolly, the center, was second high in the total of points scored with five field goals to his credit. The remaining points of the Broncos ' score were ac- counted among Sherman, Boland, Schuppert, Moroney and Vukota. Frank Schuppert acted as captain in this game in the absence of Captain George Barsi, who had not yet returned from the post-season trip of the football team. Puccinelli, Captain of the Sodality Club five, led his team with a record of eight points scored. He was best performer on the visiting team ' s line-up, playing a good floor game. Scott, forward ; Burrell, center, and Loughran and P. Pavley, guards with Puccinelli formed the Club line-up. This first game showed that Coach Dykes ' team was well founded in their signals and plays and the extra practice periods gained during the holidays showed good results. Jack Gough was not | only high point man for the contest but was easily the out- standing player on the court. His record for the evening showed eleven goals from the field and three tosses from the free throw tself was enough to win the REDWOOD t n OH 5an Jose Qoids Qame efore a crowd that filled Seifert Gym, the Varsity basketball five ran up a score of 48 points to 18 for the Y. M. C. A. Golds of San Jose, January 10th. The large crowd, as well as the visiting team, was dazzled by the speed, dash, and fire displayed by the Broncos in this, their first major encounter of the season. Led by the light- ning Jack Gough, who rang the opponents ' basket for a total of twenty-one points, the Santa Clara quintet bombarded the back- board for fifteen bask- ets from the field and eighteen free throws. Coach Dykes took his regulars out of the line-up early in the second half and the subs continued on in the same brilliant fash- ion in advancing the ball down the court for points as first string men whom they replaced. The local Mission five led at half time by a 24 to 10 count. It was in this game that Frank Schuppert, t h e flashy running- guard and pivot man of the Bronco offense was injured and prac- tically lost to the team for the balance of the season. He collided with one of the visit- ing players and in fall- ing so badly hurt his knee that he had to be assisted from the floor. Tim Connolly — Center The loss of this star put the Santa Clara team in a serious position, as there was no other player to take his place save Captain Barsi, who was still away with the grid squad. Up to this point of the season the Broncos were playing in mid-season form and were no doubt just at about the top of their game when the loss of this one player put the squad back several weeks. The work of George Sherman and Tim Connolly, forward and center respectively, under the basket was of high order. The manner in which they passed the ball back and forth and continually had the Golds ' defense worried was one of the highlights of the contest. With Jack Gough this pair would advance the ball down the court on the famous Dykes " fast break " and Gough, on a majority of the cases and then Connolly, who was second for high point honors, would proceed to ring up the baskets. Harold " Jock " Moroney, the stalwart standing guard, showed up well in this game by knocking down passes of the opponents and taking the ball off the back- board in an uncanny fashion. Earle " Spud " Reynolds, who replaced Schuppert ac- counted for several points and did some accurate passing to the man in the hole. it I ' 77] J. M. J. Qame first defeat of the season came at the hands of the strong Young Men ' s istitute five of San Francisco. The game was played on January 14 in the campus gym and at the termination of the evening ' s festivities the Broncos were on the short end of a 40 to 29 score. PHP he j Ins Although the score might indicate that the aflair was a one-sided one, the game itself was far from that. The Clubmen took the lead early in the con- t e s t and held it throughout but they were never sure of their ground and were forced to play hard every minute to ward off the rally the Bron- cos made in the second half. The local five was seriously handicapped by the absence of Frank Schuppert from this game and his absence had an effect with every man on (ii-.oRi.E Shkrma ' x — Forward the line-up and even the injection of Cap- tain George Barsi in- to the game for the first time during the season was not suffi- cient to offset the loss. Barsi had been only two days off the boat after a long ocean voy- age from Hawaii and had not seen enough of a basketball to give a good account of him- self in so brief a time of practice. Schuppert had been the main cog in both the offense and de- fense up to the time of the team. The Institute players rang up two baskets before the Broncos were able to find the scoring range. Behind 4 to 0, Gough, Connolly and Barsi worked the ball down the court and Jack accounted for the first local tally. From then on during the re- mainder of the initial half the score remained in that same relative position, a last minute spurt giving the Club tossers a five-point lead at half time. The Clubmen came back stronger in the final period and led by Cook and Har- rigan established a substantial lead, while Begley and O ' Neil gave a fine exhibition of defensive tactics. Yet, in spite of the efforts of the latter, they were not able to entirely check the flashy work of Jack Gough, who came off the court high point man for the evening with a total of eighteen points. He was the outstanding man on the team and on several occasions when he was held to the middle of the court he simply stopped, paused and put the ball through the basket from long range. Moroney and Sherman also played a fine game for the Broncos. :! ' 7«I THE REDWO i .: OD Stanford Qame Showing a vast improvement in form over their previous encounter, Coach Harlan Dykes ' fast and clever varsity quintet journeyed up to the Cardinal gym and took a thrilling 21 to 20-point game from the Stanfordites on January 18. This win marked the second victory in a major sport which the Santa Clara athletes achieved over the Cardinals .this past athletic year. The particular victory came as a fitting cli- max of the wonderful victory of the foothall team over Stanford which was still fresh in the minds of every- one. The fact that the game was regarded by Stanford men as the best which their team had put on this season to date made the local accomplishment the more impressive. The Cards took the lead before the game had progressed verv far w h e n Vincenti added a point from the free throw line. This didn ' t last long for one of the Card players fouled Gough and that young sharp- shooter evened the score. The play dur- ing the first five min- utes was exceptionally fast and -neither team had much of an op- portunity to get near the basket for a field goal, the guarding was so close. Harold Moroney — Guard Captain George Barsi put in the first basket on a long toss from the middle of the court. Gough and Connolly worked a little fast teamwork, bringing the ball down under the basket where the former rang up two points. This put the Broncos into the lead by sev- eral points. The half ended 10 to 8 in favor of the local team, most of the Stan- ford ' s points coming by way of the free throw formation. Stanford came back strong to start the second half and went into the lead when Clark added a free throw and a field basket immediately after the tipoff. In a few minutes Connolly evened the score from the foul line. During the last quarter Captain Barsi was forced from the floor because of too many fouls and little Joe McNealy took his place and in shooting a goal from the free throw line, put the point through the basket which proved to be the winning margin. Stanford rushed in an entire new team when Barsi left the court and made a desperate effort to win, but the rally fell short, mainly due to the fine defensive efforts of Moroney, Connolly and McNealy against the fresh men. ::. 19} :-:■ r F THE REDWOOD Pacific Qame cing the College of the Pacific Tigers who had an impressive early season record, the Santa Clara quintet on the evening, January 21st, in the Seifert Gym surprised many by winning in easy fashion by a 24 to 12 score.

The remaining five points that the Stockton players made were tallied from the free throw line. Connolly began where he left off at the half and accounted three more baskets during the last twenty minutes of play to make him high point man for the night. Barsi in sinking a long shot from beyond the middle of the floor made the best shot of the game. Coach Dykes used the same five men throughout the contest in order to develop the teamwork with Barsi, who had not been in the line-up long. Gough, Sherman, Connolly, Captain Barsi and Moroney formed the combination which sent the Tigers home with a bad defeat.

The game was played on the Bears ' home court and this fact added to the achievement. Knowing that the Santa Clara team had a very small squad and were not able to make frequent substitutions, the California coach started the game with a second team with the intention of wearing down the Broncos and then to insert his reg- ulars during the final twenty minutes would be able to run up a good score with a fresh team, supposed- ly the best he had. The idea proved to be a disastrous one for California, since the Joe McNealy — Forward local players ran up a lead amounting to five points on the Cali- fornia second team and the two regulars who played in the first half. The score at half time was 13 t o 8. Each team made ten points in the final period, but despite the fact that most of the California players were fresh and the Broncos tired after a mauling half, the edge was decidedly in the favor of Coach Dykes ' players. Corbin, the able California center, who was kept on the sidelines during the first twenty minutes of play, sank a basket im- mediately after the opening tip-off of the second half, but Gough retaliated with a basket in answer just as suddenly after the following tip-off as the Bear player had a few seconds previously. The play throughout the contest was very fast and the guarding so close that a number of fouls were committed by both teams. Captain Barsi was retired a few minutes before the final whistle and Frank Schuppert, who had been out of the game for a month took the captain ' s place and was largely instrumental in warding off the frantic last minute rally which the Berkeleymen made. Leading by one basket and stalling under the California goal, the Broncs were rushed and a fast pass from Schuppert to Gough to Sherman to Connolly brought the basket which actually decided the game. Gough was high point man with eight points, Connolly next with seven and Sherman, and Corbin of California, tied with six apiece. M 4 181] : THE REDWOOD St. Ignatius Qame Too many hard games in succession put the Bronco basket tossers in a bad slump by the time February 1st rolled around, and as a result the powerful St. Ignatius College quintet of San Francisco found the local five on an off night and emerged with a 25 to 22 victory. Just as the score indicates, the game was fast and interest- ing. It could be ob- served that Coach Dykes ' players were far below their usual form. In contrast the St. Ignatius team played a wonderful game, perhaps their best of the season. The Broncos were the first to score, counting when Tim Connolly put the ball through the m e s h from the free throw line and a few min- utes later he scored from the field and gave Santa Clara a three-point lead. had a badly injured leg so Schuppert went back in and in less than a minute suffered another knee injury, which put him out of the game for the balance of the season. St. Ignatius took the lead before the half ended and shots by Connolly and Gough regained it early in the second half but the Broncos lost it later. In the last minute of play Santa Clara was seven points behind, and Connolly, who was high- point man and star of the game for the Broncos, shot two baskets in quick succes- sion and brought the margin down three points. Earle Reynolds — Forward After the first field shot by the Bronco center there was no scoring for fully five minutes. The play was very fast and none of the players had time to get set for a shot, the guarding on both sides was so close.

Coach Dykes ' boys took the lead in about the first second of play when George Sherman, the big for- ward, caught the ball from the tip-off and after a short dribble shot a basket with the Olympian guards look- ing on. The teams had no sooner lined up again when Gough duplicated Sherman ' s feat. The game was six minutes old before the Clubmen tallied, so close was the guarding of the entire Bronco team. Jock Moroney and Captain B a r s i played their best de- fensive game of the season and never al- lowed Nip McHose or Gene M i n o r, the Olympic sharpshoot- ing forwards, get in close for an easv shot. Several times dur- ing the contest the score was tied but the local five was never behind. At half time the score stood 15 to 13. Gough, Connolly and Sherman added four points at the start of the final period and then the Clubmen came forward with a rally, which with a minute yet to go found them still behind, 22 to 20. Gough added another shot from the field to cinch the game and just the instant before the final whistle Tim Connolly added the final two points of the evening. Offensively Jack Gough was the most conspicuous player on the court. His clever dribbling, passing and ( rEORGE Vukota — Forward shooting gave him a decided edge over the rival forwa largest to ever witness a game on the Mission court. OLYMPIC CLUB (20) FG.

He entered in Joe Regan — Center middle of the floor and caged a long shot which placed his team in the lead. St. Ignatius secured a point on a free throw and Gough followed this by slapping in a shot under the basket which Connolly had just failed to get through the ring.

THE REDWOOD St (Gary ' s Series Santa Clara added another victory to their list on the evening of February 23 at the expense of the mauling, Galloping Gaels of St. Mary ' s College and took a 30 to 28 victory in a wild and exciting game played as the initial con- test of the annual Saint-Bronco series. The contest was played on the Kezar Pavilion court before a big crowd. The game itself from a strict basket- ball standpoint was nothing exceptional. Yet it was more or less a thriller — close, espe- cially during the final minutes when St. Mary ' s tried in vain to catch the flying Broncs. The Broncos were ahead — at first by two points, then four, then two, four again and two. Such was the order in the closing minutes of play. The game was rough. It was allowed to become too much so, each team being guilty of committing more fouls than in any other Bronco contest this season. St. Mary ' s was the first to score, Tazer and the tough Frank- ain getting baskets and the former a free throw to place their team out in the lead, 5 to 0. William Boland — Guard From this point on the game became ex- ceedingly rough, the six succeeding plays ending up on the free throw line. Moroney put an end to the foul and free tactics by putting a long shot from the side through the basket. He added another long one a few seconds later and from this point on the Broncos were never behind. The first eleven plays of the second half were fouls, two Broncos and one Saint player were put off the court. Gough was high point man. ST. MARY ' S Fg.

The second game was more interesting fro m a spectator ' s standpoint than the first. Fast and clever work throughout made it an interesting one to watch. St. Mary ' s was nine points in the lead at the end of the half, came back at the start of the second to make eleven more while the Broncos were accu- mulating just one. Then Santa Clara staged a rally and ran ten to one points for the Gaels. St. Mary ' s played great ball, many claimed it their best of the season. The third game was conspicious by the ab- sence of fouling which dominated the first two. Tazer in making fourteen points was largely responsible for his team ' s victory. n SANTA CLARA Fg.

Dykes, the varsity mentor. Considering all things the team had a most successful year, met and defeated some of the best teams of their own calibre in this part of the state and developed a large number of men who, in future years, shall be of valuable service to the varsity squad. The freshmen began practice early last winter with the varsity and as the season wore on they proved to be a good match for Captain Barsi and his team. The freshmen had a rather large and well-balanced squad except in a few cases when injuries cut down the proficiency. At the start of the season Coach Dykes worked up a great combination with Marshall Leahy and Steve Murray as forwards, George Rooney as center and Captain Herman Mettler and Mario Tollini as the guards. A few days before the first game Rooney wrenched his knee and was lost for the entire season. This necessitated in Coach Dykes looking for a new center and accounts for the fact that an important game was lost to Stanford. Leahy went to center and Ehlert and :1 : «7i THE REDWOOD Manwell worked as forwards until Melvin Flohr joined the squad a few weeks later and played center, moving Leahy back to forward. Leahy became ill just before the California game and as a result the team went into this contest somewhat crippled. The big highlights of the Frosh season was the triumph over the St. Mary ' s Babes. Only two games were played, the Broncho yearlings running off with both, the first one with Leahy out of the line-up. After defeating handily the St. Vin- cent ' s High School quintet of Vallejo, the Frosh met and won over the strong Gale- lio High School team from San Francisco by a 30 to 22 score. The Frosh, behind at the start of the game, played in SeifertGym, made a big rally to take the lead just be- fore the half and stayed out in front for the remainder of the game. Steve Murray and Marshall Leahy were high point men with ten each. f to 10 score mainly be- cause Marshall Leahy, who usually gets at least four baskets a game, had an off night and didn ' t tally a sin- gle point. With Leahy ill and unable to give his best game, the Frosh lost to the California first year men by a 17 to 12 score. Flohr, who had just joined the squad a few days prev- ious, played and bol- stered the weakened Colts considerably. Stanford won over the local frosh by a 22 Captain Herman Mettler The Frosh turned back the St. Mary ' s yearlings in the first game of the series, played in Seifert Gym, by a 27 to 24 score. The Frosh played good ball through- out, even with Leahy, their star player, out of the line-up. Starting out with a field goal by Murray in the first few seconds of play, the Broncs piled up a lead of eight points before the visitors could score and led at half time, 17 to 14. Murray, stocky forward, was the best man on the floor. His remarkable shooting accounted for fourteen field points for the home team. Playing their best basketball of the year, Coach Dykes ' freshmen terminated their season by taking their second straight game from the St. Mary ' s Babes, 25 to 18. The conquered team was prone to make the contest rough but the local five by some clever pivoting and passing kept the ball away from their hard fighting- opponents. Because of his good work in the first game Murray was closely guarded and to off-set this Flohr and Leahy each stepped out and made eight points apiece to tie for high point honors and to keep the young Saints in check. IX ,4 :. I188J : M THE REDWOOD tfohe Qoach Credit for the success which Santa Clara enjoyed on the basketball court tin ' s season all goes to Harlan H. Dykes, the popular coach. Mr. Dykes really did excellent work in handling both the varsity and freshmen fives and had he been only fairly successful after undertaking such a big task he would have been deserving of a world of praise, but he ac- complished the very exceptional and gave to Santa Clara a var- sity five which ranked on a par with any other team in the state and which has become a power in Pacific Coast basketball ; not to mention his fresh- man quintet in which he developed several players who are ex- pected to step into varsity positions next winter. His problems with both teams were by no wise easy. He was in- like the put the confronted all season long with a hard schedule and a very limited squad of var- sity men to play the games and with juries and the handic a p p ing team to say that he a great team on court for every game is putting it mild. It was thought that he had no substitutes but in one game he proved otherwise, that he had developed good re- serves, for one of the subs was put in when the team was behind and won the game.

' it ::. DATING far back to those days when athletic competition was in its infancy one can trace what was the beginning of the present Bronco diamond history. In the days before the pigskin was being kicked about the gridirons, Santa Clara was produc- ing teams — graduating players who went out, made names for themselves and their school in the great diamond sport. SANTA CLARA ' S coach of the present time, Justin Fitzgerald, is one of these former heroes. Others too numerous to men- tion, before and since his time, have trod the same traditional path. THE fact is that no matter whether he has turned out any brilliant players this year or not, the chances are he has, that old spirit born in the West ' s seat of learning so long ago is being perpetuated by an old master of the craft — tradition is fostered and honored; our team of this year is reviving a thing of the past — to be propagated by the future. THE season just closed was a good one. The record compiled, a favorable one. There were a few disappointing features to be sure, but these were more than off-set by what the team accomplished, development of men and of players.

The number of Collegiate games was of necessity shortened in order that the Passion Play of Santa Clara should suffer no interference. This was only proper. The team entered into College competition with an unblemished standing of seven straight wins. The season looked prosperous, and as it turned out the s eason ' s record was nothing to be sorry about. Many old hands on the team gave evidence of future greatness in the national pastime. Among these might be mentioned Marvin Owen, whose batting and snappv fielding left nothing to be desired. A word of praise must be mentioned in the case of [ohnny Casanova and John Morey. Casanova making his debut as a member of the Varsity pitching staff turned in some nice wins and was always re- liable in the pinches whether at bat or on the mound. :.

This gave the Frosh an opportunity to organize in a general way a baseball club. This was done under the cap- able leadership of Al Tassi, Frosh Football Captain. The team was under Fresh- man direction. The schedule consisted of five games with nearby high schools. The Frosh lost three and won two, not a bad record when all circumstances are taken into consideration. Some very excellent material caught Coach Fitzgerald ' s eye during the Frosh skirmishes. This was especially so in the game with San Jose High, which the Frosh won 7-2. Howie O ' Daniels, Frosh chucker, kept the high school batsmen well in hand, while he put the game on ice in the seventh inning with a circuit clout with the bases loaded. All in all the Freshman Club had much reason to look on the season as successful. THE TEAM Pitchers.— .Storm and H.

It is to him that credit is due for refounding of what promises to be a permanent Bronco sport. Billy for many years was a professional fighter, and in his days in the ring took part in 169 battles, fighting such men as Joe Hagan, former middleweight champion of the world ; Harry Ramsay, Philadelphia socker, Connie Smith of Gotham, and the famous " Bat " Levinsky. er, and this year when the grid schedule was com- pleted, he was made coach of boxing and swimming. Billy has a great love for sports, and this with his former ring experience made him an ideal instruc- tor. Burke has had a most successful year here. He was very popular on the campus, and did an im- mense amount of good, phy- sically and otherwise. Later Billy became con- nected with the ring as a referee, and in time became a trainer. But a few years ago the Oakland Oaks need- ed a man to keep their team in shape. They got hold of Burke, and since then he has been keeping the Oakland- ers all fixed up for their strenuous baseball seasons. For the last two years Billy has come down to the University as football train- l " ' l l ' " l 1 ' i ' " i i " .

The Athens ' Club men were outweighed, and, as a whole, outclassed in skill, but they put up lots of fight. Harry Morey, 130 pound Santa Claran, opened the night by taking the decision in a bout with McLean. Tommy O ' Hara, 115, of the University beat Izzy Can- tor, 110, of the club out of the other decision in a fast, hard bitting contest. Al Ruffo, University, a n d •anged by Billy were a three round bout between (Jimmy Duffy), Pacific Coast Welterweight, and C. boxing team — and a show put on by Mickey Frank B. Tucker, both 175 pounders, worked out the hardest bout of the evening with Ruffo showing some real class against the Oak- lander. Les Keating fought plucky Bob Woods of the club for two rounds ; Mickey Farrell met Dor- man, Athens ' Club, in a one-sided affair in which the heavy Farrell outclassed his opponent all around. George Malley, S. C. Prep coach and former Olympic club scrapper fought Ray Parmer in the big event of the night. Ray Deasy die not box. THE REDWOOD H " -i Intra-mural Sports Intra-mural sports offered an opportunity for everyone to get into some form of athletics, and in this way students who did not go in for major sports were given an incentive to exercise and build themselves up. This year the intra-mural games were particularly well patronized, and the stu- dents took part in the different branches of athletics with great interest. basketball Inter-College and Inter-Class basketball tournaments were played off during the latter part of October under the direction of Coach Harlan Dykes, basketball mentor, and were held chiefly to acquaint the coach with the new Frosh material and to discover any embryonic stars who might be eligible for the varsity. Inter-Class games were played in the unlimited class, and there were games in both unlimited and 145 pound divisions in the Inter-college tournament. The Engineers took the Inter-College unlimited contest, and the Lawyers were first in the 145 division. The Business men took the Inter-College play. Inter-class tournament The Seniors were taken out by the Sophomores when the second year men downed them 39-7. The Freshmen beat the Juniors 22-20. The final title went to the Sophomores by their 34-19 victory over the class of Thirtv-One. Inter -college (fleets Unlimited s In the eliminations the Engineers beat the Pre-Medics 25-7, and the Lawyers defaulted to the Business Men. The Business beat the Engineers 28-23 for the title. 145 Tound Qlass The Pre-Meds eliminated the Engineers, 29-9, and the Lawyers took Business 13- 8. For the finals the Lawvers triumphed over the Doctors 18-14. [207I THE REDWOOD i Upper left — Owen holding seven baseballs. Upper right — Board of strategy.

Kieferdorf, Vice-President of the Bank of Italy and head of its Trust Department, has distinguished himself this year by his whole-hearted and en- thusiastic cooperation with the faculty and student body in every activity, scholastic, financial and athletic, of the University. Special mention must be made of his deep interest in the Mission restoration campaign and in the success of the Passion Play. His influence has been an inspiration to all his fellow alumni. Mr. James A. Bacigalupi, President of the Bank of Italy, has this year mani- fested his oft-proved loyalty to Santa Clara, by his sympathetic concern in the restoration of his beloved Mission Santa Clara and in particular by his generous contribution of the funds necessary to erect and adorn the altars of the Crucifix and of our Lady of Guadalupe. Mr. Frank M. Heffernan, distinguished president of the Alumni Association for two terms, has proven again his devotion to Santa Clara, by a handsome donation covering the main altar, the reredos, the mural painting over the sanctuary, the pulpit and the altar railing. The gift is made in memory of his departed father and mother. Mr. C. M. Castruccio continues the same loyal, active, interested " Cas " that we have always known. Santa Clara scarcely ever plays an important game without having " Cas " on the side-lines. The journey from Los Angeles is never too great or too tiring for him when a meeting of the Athletic Board is called. Within the last few months a baby daughter has come to bless his happy home. t = ■ h m THE REDWOOD Mr. William F. Humphrey, prominent alumnus and attorney, and president of the Associated Oil Company, shows his love for his Alma Mater on every occasion. Outstanding has been his active interest and generosity in the work of rebuilding the Mission. Quiet, efficient, unassuming Jack Irillary, treasurer of the Alumni Association, again handled the finances of the " Big Game " to the thorough satisfaction of the managements of St. Mary ' s and of Santa Clara. His worth to the French-Ameri- can Bank has been recognized by his promotion to the position of Vice-President. Dr. Fred Gerlach, alumnus and eminent physician and surgeon of San Jose, has faithfully attended the University sick for over thirty years. The magnificent X-ray instrument in the infirmary attests his generosity and love of Alma Mater. He leaves in May for an extended tour of Europe. Leo Ellis, an architect in San Francisco, very generously contributed all the preliminary drawings for the Mission Chapel. J. Lester Pierce has shown special interest in the interior finishing of the Mis- sion. The reredos, altars, pulpit, altar railing, confessionals and pews are all the work of the Pacific Manufacturing Company, Santa Clara. Mr. Clay M. Greene, ' 69, was conspicuous on the campus during the last week of rehearsals of the Passion Play and during several of the performances. The Play was every bit as successful as when first produced, twenty-seven years ago. W. C. G. McDonnell has blossomed forth as the owner and publisher of a paper, the " San Francisco Herald. " Mr. Hoover ' s presidential possibilities seem to be a favorite topic. Ed. Kearns of Salt Lake has sent the University some valuable specimens of mining ores. Mr. Felix Galtes of Bakersfield shows his interest in the rebuilding of the Mis- sion by periodically sending in a check towards its reconstruction. Mr. Clarence C. Coolidge has retired from his career of public service as Dis- trict Attorney of Santa Clara County. He has entered private practice in the Bank of Italy Building and continues as professor in the Law Department and as legal counsel of the Board of Trustees of the University. Messrs. William Lotz, Ronald Stewart, Ed. Fellows, Peter Morettini and Ralph Martin are doing excellent work as professors in various departments of the University.

Kieferdorf of the class of ' 00, the opening performance of the Passion Play was witnessed by a large group of Alumni. In the dim dramatic light of the theatre, and in a gathering of so many distinguished auditors I may have missed faces. With this apology I submit the names of those I recognized, and many of these be it noted were shep- herding parties of fives and tens : W. J. Kieferdorf, James A. Bacigalupi, F. M.

Gallagher, the genial mortician of Alameda. Carlos McClatchy, " Fresno Bee " proprietor, James E. Walsh, manager of the Flood Estate, Adolph Camarillo, belted squire of Ventura County, and last but not least, Joseph Hooper, president of the First Federal Trust. Joe is and has always been one of Santa Clara ' s most cherished sons.

John O ' Toole, former Alumni President, and now City Attorney of San Fran- cisco, is earning for himself a reputation in the legal lore of city government that is unequaled in the great City which he serves. Chauncey Tramutolo — no need to say much of Chauncey. He is a booster for Santa Clara in fair weather and foul. We notice from press reports that he is one of the great boosters of Al Smith for President. Dr. O. D. Hamlin, the doctor is the type of man that any college would be proud of. His is a profession that is always giving service. Our wish and prayer is that the Lord will spare him to us for many years so that this tear-stained world of ours may have a few tears less. Tom Crowe of Visalia. Tom is practising law in his own native heath, and we are looking to see him soon, a name to conjure with, in that land of nightshirt paraders. W. R. Donnelly of Anderson came down to see the Passion Play and inci- dentally to give his young hopeful the once over. Dr. Joe Toner, besides practising his profession of trying to lessen the score of human ills, is also interested in City Government. In the November elections he was a successful candidate to the Board of Supervisors. Stanley Sargent paid us a visit. We were glad to see him. Stanley comes from a long line of Santa Clara graduates. He is the brother of Brad, of the class of ' 13. Poor Bradley is one of the eight Santa Clara men whose bodies lie in Flan- ders ' field. Angelo Rianda is such an enthusiast for Santa Clara that he accompanied the football team to the Hawaiian Islands. If the Broncos fail to be champions, it will not be Rianda ' s fault. With regret we learn that he was recently in a serious auto accident. Speaking of the trip to the Islands, it was certainly inspiring to meet so many old Santa Clara men natives of the Islands, so loyal to the old school and so brim- ful of happy memories of their days there. You have the Mclnerney brothers, leading aristocrats and most successful business men. Twin brothers, by the way and strange as it may seem, they have yet to fall before the shafts of Cupid. There is Manuel Ferry, Vice-President of the International Trust Company. Manuel ' s hospitality will long be remembered by every Santa Clara man that had the privilege of making that trip. There is George Hanneberg. George was with the boys all the time, though he holds the responsible position of secretary to the Mayor. Last, but not least, " Barney " Jarrett, the same Barney, whom we knew in days of yore, happy go-lucky, imperturbable, the world ever at his feet, and Santa Clara on the top of the world.

Although basketball was unknown at Santa Clara when R. M. F. Soto was a boy not a game of any kind is played in the city that he is not there. Present from Los Angeles at the last Alumni Banquet was Mr. Hurd, who is now practising law in that city. In spite of his seriously impaired eyesight, Johnny Ivancovich continues to thrill audiences in San Francisco by his wonderful acting. To Roy Bronson goes the honor of being elected for the second time President of the Laymen ' s Retreat Association. Much of the success of this movement is due to his energy. Richard Montgomery aided in the recent rebuilding of the Mission. The case regarding the airplane patents of his brother John Montgomery has been re- opened lately. On his retirement from the Federal Attorney ' s office in San Francisco, Tommy Riordan found himself fully occupied with his private practice. One of the rising young attorneys of San Francisco is Jimmie O ' Connor, who will be remembered as athletic manager while at college.

Louis Arata ' s death at Crockett brought sorrow to his wide circle of friends, and in him Santa Clara loses an alumnus who had a lively and continuous affection for his Alma Mater. Daniel Flannery died very suddenly. No man was more widely known and loved in Santa Clara County, which he had served as Recorder for twenty years. Santa Clara ' s oldest .student died in San Francisco during the winter. The name or Jose Miramontes appears in the first College Catalogue — thus another link with the past is gone. Richard Fox, an early alumnus, died April 18, in San Jose. In Bakersfield the death of Louis Olcese claimed one who ever was ready to assist. In the Mission Drive he organized the work in the San Joaquin Valley. The younger generation of alumni were saddened to learn of the sudden and unexpected death of Elisandro Palomares. It is but proper to record the demise of Patrick Higgins in Paris. It was under his able coaching that Santa Clara first began to play the best Rugby football in the State.

Sexton even in death turned his thoughts back to boyhood days, making provision in his will for the establishment of three scholarships. In the death of Jos. R. Ryland, Santa Clara County and University lost one of its most highly respected citizens, whose family has ever been closely connected with Santa Clara since its beginning. The deaths of James and Vincent McDevitt, brothers of Joseph McDevitt, former president of the alumni, were particularly sad, as they occurred within a short time of each other. Four of our Alumni, Dr. Anthony, Joseph, Aloysius and Victor Diepen- brock recently lost their father, who had all his sons educated here. The recent death of Mrs. Beck in San Jose took the mother of Paul Beck, one of our earliest engineering graduates. Wm. Hudner of San Diego passed away recently. Santa Clara lost another faithful Alumnus on the death of Geo. H. Murphy of Milpitas. Thomas O ' Connor passed away during the course of the year. Michael Brown, ' 09, met his death in an aviation accident in April. In addition to the donations of altars in the Mission mentioned above, we are happy to record that Messrs Alfred Tobin, William Kieferdorf, Luis Fatjo and the Canelo Bros., " Ad " and Harry, have each donated funds for the installation and decoration of side altars. The cooperation of the alumni has been extremely gratifying.
