THE REDWOOD of nineteen hundred and thirty-seven r %■ 4S£k THE REDWOOD 1937 THE ANNUAL PUBLICATION ASSOCIATED STUDENTS UNIVERSITY OF SANTA CLARA SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA VOLUME XXXIII FOREWORD " To mould men after the model of the Man-God, and thus form them to serve their fellow men, their country and their God; this is the ideal and the purpose of the University of Santa Clara. " ... If we, the editors of THE REDWOOD, have adequately recorded the seeking and the fulfillment of this ideal by the men of Santa Clara, then gratification is ours. May this annual during the years to come, bring back fond memories of the gallant struggle for that magnificent paragon and of the spiritual, scholastic and athletic achievements which the sons of Santa Clara have made their own. REV. JOHN J. MITTY DEDICATION In appreciation and tribute to one whose successful endeavors inspired by his untiring zeal have merited the fruits of triumph for the Holy Catholic Church, THE REDWOOD of Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-Seven is dedicated to his Excellency The Most Reverend John J. Mitty, Archbishop of San Francisco. The Chapel Tower as seen from the inner gardens. ' Many years separate these immense palms and beautiful Nobili Hall. IN MEMORIAM REVEREND HENRY WOODS, S. J. Vctrsi has lost a good friend. The Society of Jesus has lost a valued worker. Literary America has lost one of its finest classical scholars. And this because we shall no longer see the " old familiar face " of Father Henry Woods as he walked across the sun-filled quadrangles; be- cause we shall no longer hear the interesting inflections of his voice as he besought library students to " please refrain from bending the pages of the books. They are dear and valued friends and we should treat them as such. " Father Woods, former Librarian of Varsi, literary figure and student, teacher and philoso- pher, priest and Jesuit, died May 4, 1936, in Dcnohoe Infirmary at the age of 83 years, 58 of them spent in the Society of Jesus. He died loved, respected, and deeply mourned. His friends and admirers felt keenly the absence of one of the last examples of the literary and spiritual tradition that impelled the Oxford move- ment and produced the gentleman who was Father Woods. When shall we see another who so fervently raised the cross and so wisely wielded the pen? BOOK I UNIVERSITY REV. LOUIS C. RUDOLPH, S. J. President PRESIDENT During the past two years, Reverend Louis C. Rudolph, S. J., president of The University of Santa Clara, has been in complete charge of the major administrative problems. One need only look about him and see the wonderful work which has been accomplished towards the main- tenance and betterment of Santa Clara. As a result of his undaunted efforts, we have THE REDWOOD which he aided in rejuvenating. On behalf of the students, faculty and alumni, the editors wish to thank and congratulate Father Rudolph.

WOLF Professor of English Professor of English COLLEGES The College of Arts and Sciences has as its purpose the harmonious develop- ment of the students ' mental, moral and physical faculties. Its end is to establish a cultural foundation in the student, upon which future specialization may be based. Concentrated work in the fields of the humanities, economics, English, history, philosophy, political science, biology and chemistry, lead to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Philosophy, or Bachelor of Science. The require- ments for pre-medical students may be met by following for at least three years, the science courses in the College of Arts and Sciences. Today it is necessary to be able to cope with the general as well as the specific problems of modern industry. Hence the College of Business Administration does not aim at extreme specialization, but endeavors to enable the student to understand the fundamental principles of the industrial system. The student gains a practical insight into representative industries by a series of lectures given by prominent businessmen, and by a series of inspection tours of metro- politan industrial establishments. A four year course with a major in one of the three basic departments i. e., Business Organization and Management, Finance and Accounting leads to the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science. The engineer of today must possess more than a mere technical ability. He should have a broad cultural background together with a fundamental knowl- edge of the principles of those sciences upon which all engineering is based. This is the ideal offered by the College of Engineering. Four and five year courses lead to the degrees of Bachelor of Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. These courses are presented in an environment which contributes to the cultural background and moral training as well as deep, per- severing study. A sufficiency of practical work enables the student to apply his knowledge and training to the best advantage. As its three-fold purpose, the College of Law offers a thorough training in the basic principles of English, American and California law; a proper guide to the application of these principles by actual practice in office work and court pro- cedure; finally, a strict training in the ethical principles which should govern the legal profession. The prescribed courses lead to the Bachelor of Law degree, and the certificate in law. SENIORS SENIORS WILLIAM J. ADAMS, JR. College of Engineering Santa Cruz, California GEORGE W. ARTZ, JR.

Smith SOPHOMORE CLASS The men of ' 39 entered Santa Clara as the largest class to enroll at the Uni- versity in many years. Because of their number and varied abilities, they broke precedent in their participation in campus activities. Beginning their sophomore year with a splendid demonstration of class organi- zation in their efficient handling of the Freshman initiation, they continued their co-operative spirit throughout the year by active participation in campus func- tions. Important editorial positions on the staff of THE REDWOOD, The Owl, and The Santa Clara were ably filled by second year men, while their part in dra- matics and debating marked them a talented group. Future success in athletic fields may be looked for; the key positions in many sports being already in the hands of this year ' s sophomore students. Congratulations for the success of the class as a unit belong to Edward Nelson, President; to John O ' Hara, Vice-President; to Robert De Benedictis, Secretary, and to William Bruce, the Student Congress Representative of the class.

But after the first semester the class proved that this was no indication of future work. Freshmen can now be found on the active member lists of practically all stu- dent organizations. They figure prominently on the rosters of the Clay M. Greene Players, of the Glee Club and Band, and of the science organizations. On The Santa Clara and Owl staffs they have done work which speaks well for the future of those publications. A fine record in debating and public speaking has been marked up to the credit of the Freshmen while their splendid showing in University athletics has made Varsity men less sure of their positions. As their leaders in their first Santa Clara year the Freshmen elected to presi- dency, Raymond McCarthy; to the office of Vice-President, Nicholas Stubler; Joseph Lacey to the secretarial position, and Jack Flanagan to the Sergeant-at- Arms post.

Filippini ' 37, realizing several noteworthy ends. Organized for efficiency in school activities, the Congress met on an average of once every six weeks during the year, to act in the capacity of intermediary between classes and societies of the university. With the firm purpose of reviving THE REDWOOD, this group last September began a concentrated drive to secure sufficient funds to re-establish the year-book among university publications. The Student Congress also sponsored the highly successful student-body dance, the first in several years; managed to have golf recognized as a minor sport; were responsible for the success of many dances, rallies, and other social functions. Rev. John O ' Connell, S. J., prefect of discipline, presided at all the meetings. PAUL O ' HARA Business Manager LAWRENCE KIRSCH Sports Editor JOHN C.

Through the splendid support and cooperation of alumni and friends of Santa Clara, sufficient funds were secured to commence publication. To these men and women, we are deep! grateful. It has been through the untiring efforts of Rev. Vincent Casey, S. J., moderator, that has encouraged THE REDWOOD staff to greater accomplishments which are manifested here in this annual. Acting in the capacity of Managing Editor and Business Manager, John Chartz and Paul O ' Hara respectively, have effici- ently and successfully performed their charge. Norman Bayley, News Editor, has proven himself an energetic worker and has set a criterion which others in years to come may strive to achieve. The task of Sports Editor was ably filled by Lawrence Kirsch, who had an unprecedented amount of work to accomplish in the limited time which was allotted him. To the associate editors and all who have aided in any way to help re-establish THE REDWOOD, I am profoundly appreciative. j flUyUW . EDITOR, THE REDWOOD - " . ' : ' ■ GEORGE C.

Earning national recognition and honors consistently, the publication has been awarded the Ail-American rating year after year by the board of review of Collegiate papers. In 1934, it was given the " Pacemaker " rating, which placed it among the first four Ail-American university newspapers in the United States. Recording campus activities and university news is the purpose of The Santa Clara, and it is the aim of our staff to retain the paper ' s position among collegiate publications. The weekly also affords the students an opportunity to apply the theories of journalism they are taught in the newly formed classes. The Santa Clara ' s faculty moderator, Rev. Raymond Prendiville, S. J., also heads the jour- nalism department, which was formed as a result of the interest displayed by students in the University ' s publications. Copies of our newspaper are sent each week to the alumni and friends of Santa Clara, as well as to the Library of Congress, to universities and colleges throughout the nation, and to seven foreign countries. H44 EDITOR, THE SANTA CLARA Back Row: Felciano, Artz, Klrsch, Joseph, Naumes Front Row: Green, Meagher, Kane, Sanguinetti, Barton THE OWL First published in 1869, The Owl, monthly literary magazine of the University, is the oldest of Santa Clara ' s student publications. For six years after its incep- tion, it appeared regularly; in 1875, it was discontinued, and its finances were used as the initial awards in an annual oratorical contest sponsored by the maga- zine. It appeared periodically during the ensuing years, only recently becoming firmly established as a regular campus publication. In recent years, The Owl has been published monthly under the supervision of Rev. Edward Shipsey, S. J., head of the English department, and faculty mod- erator. Gerard Wagstaffe ' 38 was editor of the magazine during the first term this year. We made several constructive changes in the make-up of the magazine this year, which met with the approval of the readers. The contents of The Owl are made up of original essays, short stories, and verse contributed by students of the University, and the magazine has the distinction of having a complete file of its issues kept in Rome. f t Z _ EDITOR, THE OWL REV.

THE BOARD OF STUDENT PUBLICATIONS Although convening rarely, the board on publications, consisting of the pre- fects of discipline and studies and the moderators of the various publications, controls important appointments and general policies of The Santa Clara, weekly newspaper; The Owl, monthly literary magazine, and THE REDWOOD, the University year book. Members of this year ' s board were Rev. J. P. O ' Connell, S. J., prefect of disci- pline; Rev. W. C. Gianera, S. J., prefect of studies; Rev. Edward Shipsey, S. J., moderator of The Owl; Raymond E. Prendiville, S. J., moderator for The Santa Clara, and Vincent J. Casey, S. J., moderator for THE REDWOOD. Appointments of editors particularly is the work of the board, appointments ordinarily being made upon the recommendation of the moderator, subject to the approval of the board. The presence of the prefects of discipline and studies as members eliminates the possibility of the appointment of any one whose conduct does not merit the position, or whose scholastic standing is not satisfactory. Sack Row: Farasyri, Morgan, Artz, Kilkenny, O ' Connor, Kelly, Front Row: Green, Doll, Filippini, Cost, Clark, Ferro THE PHILALETHIC SENATE Santa Clara originated the practice of modelling college debating societies after the national legislature. Eighty years ago, in 1857, it founded the Literary Congress, composed of two houses, and its example has since been followed by numerous institutions throughout the country. The Philalethic Senate is the upper house of the Congress, and like its com- panion, the House of Philhistorians, was founded for the purpose of fostering student debating. Speakers who have had one year ' s experience in the lower house are admitted to membership in the Senate. Under the direction of Rev. Cyril Kavanagh, S. J., the octogenarian club enjoyed a very active year in 1936-37, during which it scheduled a number of intercollegiate debates with neighboring universities, held regular weekly meet- ings, and participated in the traditional Ryland Debate, between the House and the Senate. George C. Clark ' 37 was elected president of the Senate during the first sem- ester of this year, and was replaced during the second semester by John A. Cost ' 38. Back Row: J. O ' Hara, Crisw IcDonough, Smith, Doherty, Bricca, N. Bayley, Meaghe s, O ' Toole, Twohy, Sanguinetti, Haid, Adams THE HOUSE OF PHILHISTORIANS Santa Clarans interested in debating belong to the Stephen M. White Society as freshmen, and become members of the House of Philh istorians in their sopho- more year. The House is the lower body of the Literary Congress, and, with the Philalethic Senate, has been instrumental in building Santa Clara ' s distinguished reputation in forensics. Since its inception in 1857.. the House has continually been active in developing capable speakers by maintaining its program of regular weekly debates among its own members,- and carrying on a program of intercollegiate meets with other universities. But its most important duty each year comes with the Ryland Debate, in which it competes with the Senate for prizes established by an early Santa Clara alumnus and his son. Since the founding of the Ryland Debate, the Senate has won twenty times, the House thirteen. Rev. E. R. Boland, S. J., moderator of the group for the past several years, guided its destinies this year, aided by Kevin Twohy ' 39, the vice-speaker. Back Row: Doherty, Wil Front Row: Goehner, Brad ns, De Paoli, Andre, Cronin, Rankin Rev. R. F. Copeland, Miraglia, Walsh THE STEPHEN M. WHITE The very name of the Stephen M. White Society serves to introduce to its members the celebrated debating tradition of Santa Clara. The club was founded in 1922, in honor of Stephen M. White, who was graduated from the University in 1871, and in later life, distinguished himself as a lawyer and statesman, spending a term in the United States Senate, as representative from California. Its membership is restricted to freshmen who are interested in debating, although no previous forensic experience is demanded of its candidates. The purpose of the organization is to instruct its members in speaking technique, and argumentation, and to improve the style and presentation of those who are already familiar with the method of debating. To accomplish this end, the group held regular weekly meetings, at which debates between members were held, and conducted an extensive program of inter-collegiate contests. Rev. R. F. Copeland, S. J., the moderator this year, introduced an experiment by appointing a new chairman for each meeting, instead of the traditional permanent presiding officer.

GREEN PLAYERS Although the name of the Clay M. Green players has been associated with the university for many years, it was not until the fall of 1936 that the group officially united into a campus organization. The players took their name from Clay M. Green ' 86, who after graduating from the university became famous in dramatic circles as an actor, producer, and playwright. He is the author and first director of the famed Santa Clara Passion Play. Another Santa Claran who achieved recognition in the theater was Martin V. Merle ' 06, who wrote Light Eternal and the traditional Mission Play. These three plays together with Journey ' s End, Whistling in the Dark, and the Serra Pageant, rank foremost in the past university productions. The society, rapidly becoming known as the most active, is open to all students desiring admission. All dramatic work is under the direction of the players, and this year a fifteen minute radio program on station KQW in San Jose was added to their dramatic responsibilities. Rev. J. P. O ' Connell and Director Fenton McKenna with Raymond Volpe, president, guided the society through the past year. DRAMATICS Excellent organization, enthusiastic cooperation, and wholehearted member- response spells success for any group. These the Clay M. Greene Players have had in full measure this past year. An innovation of the year was the addition of the radio program. Every Wednesday night at six forty-five, the chimes announce a Santa Clara quarter hour through the facilities of station KQW in San Jose. Script writers, directors, organizers, and actors cooperated with Walter Van Der Ahe, and his successor, Hugh Smith, in arranging the program. Starting the Fall season with three one-act plays, following with the Dramatic Art Contest, won by James Doherty, the first semester was completed. The Spring term opened with " Ceiling Zero " by Frank Wead, and closed with a brilliant performance of T. S. Elliot ' s magnificent poetic drama, " Murder in the Cathedral. " This was the Northwest premiere of this play. Seniors who gave their last performances at the University this Spring are Harold F. Green, George C. Clark, John C. Filippini, and George W. Artz, Jr. They have all contributed much to Santa Clara ' s dramatics. George Artz was featured in " Ceiling Zero, " giving a superb performance as " Jake Lee. " Raymond J. Volpe, who, in his Junior year was elected president of the organi- zation for the second semester, did splendid work in " Napoleon ' s Barber, " " Ceil- ing Zero, " and " Murder in the Cathedral. " Franklin Cullen won praise for his work in this year ' s productions. Names seen frequently this year, and whose outstanding work gives the players a bright future to look forward to, include E. Francis Sanguinetti, Hugh Smith, Manuel Felciano, James Doherty, James O ' Toole, Eugene Adams, Robert Hill, and Norman Bayley. To mention specific men in a short article is little enough praise for their performances. New men, who will be much in evidence in future productions, are John Walsh, Joseph Tobin, and Leon Williams. General assistance in staging was ably given John Hartmann, Oscar Odegaard, and Ed Sullivan. The feminine leads this year were played by Marion Joy Bailey, Margaret Greenfield, Eloise Johnston, and Marian Peterson. Staging was in the capable hands of Manager Leo Ruth, assisted by Norvin Lewis, Roger Dieudonne, Phillip Hand, Fred MacDonald, and Emmett Brady. Rev. John P. O ' Connell, S. J., gave enthusiastic co-operation as moderator this year, and lent much to the success of the productions. hiocrmo nc n d a i. , a t i c DIRECTOR OF DRAMATICS Back Row: Piurna, De Young, Anahu, Egense, Cerutti, Sullivan, Toomey, Waters, Kelleher, Spec Second Row: Corporal Fullbright, Jones, Bezore, Walker, Doherty, Milhaupt, Garret, Nelson, Whittle, Row: Corp.

Introduced on March 9, 1936, the Reserve Officer ' s Training Corps actively began instructions with the enrollment of the freshman class of ' 40. The entire group of first-year men, and eighteen volunteer sophomores were enlisted, to establish the initial Army unit at Santa Clara. The unit consists of a battalion of four motorized field artillery batteries, under the command of Major E. T. Barco, assisted by Capt. H. E. Sanderson, and Capt. R. G. Duff. With the erection of equipment sheds, personnel buildings, pistol ranges, and the necessary arrangement of parade grounds by the Spring of ' 37, the unit began to function efficiently. Military theory classes were established, with advancement made possible through exemplary conduct, and high rating in theory courses. In the first year, two already commissioned reserve officers were elevated to the rank of cadet- major and cadet-captain respectively, while twenty-one privates were advanced to the position of sergeant, and twenty-eight men to the rank of corporal.

The Engineer- ing Society ' s primary purpose is to aid its members in the acquisition of ease in public speaking, and to familiarize them with parliamentary procedure; it functioned this year under the supervision of its president, William Adams ' 37. However, the club ' s activities extend far beyond providing the engineers with forensic experience. There is a yearly schedule of lectures by prominent engi- neers, and inspection tours of noteworthy engineering projects, designed to intro- duce the practical features of their future profession to the " Blue-Shirts. " The stage crew, which performs behind-the-scenes duty in all of Santa Clara dramatic productions, is made up of members of the Engineering Society. The traditional bonfire which precedes the " Little Big Game " with St. Mary ' s each year, is con- structed under the supervision of the engineers. The Society participates in the social life of the campus by sponsoring a dance each semester. Its most extensive extra-curricular work, however, is called forth in preparations for Engineer ' s Day, an annual exhibition of student scientific achievements, and mechanical and electrical novelties. : E.

Kelly, head of the College of Business Administration, and President Stanley Secondo ' 37, the Business Administration Association advanced in prestige during the two semesters of 1936-37, with an expansion in its program of activities. The Businessmen ' s Association sponsored, as usual, its semi-annual dances as its part in the social life of the campus; however, the group ' s chief accomplish- ment was an increased effectiveness in its internal program. Inspection tours through the larger banks and Stock Exchanges of the Bay Area were arranged for the benefit of the members, while valuable experience was gained in the handling of student-body affairs. Organized in October, 1935, by students in the College of Business Adminis- tration, for the purpose of encouraging the study of required subjects of the department, by affording members an opportunity for commercial and financial research, the B. A. A. is one of the few clubs which has remained active from its J n eption. he society has been an invaluable asset to its members, in the past, in view of its contacts and influence in the business world, and its ability to provide them with a practical application of business theory, and familiarize them with com- mercial practices.

Founded under the inspiration of Gregor Mendel, great modern biologist, the club exists for the purpose of stimulating individual re- search among the pre-medical students, and providing them with an insight into the problems of their future profession. Like that of other scientific groups on the campus, the program of the Mendel Society includes topical addresses by Bay Region physicians, designed to sus- tain student interest in current developments in the medical field. The activity schedule also features discussions of vital biological subjects, by members of the club, as well as the presentation of educational motion pictures. The principal interest of the members of the Mendel Society this year was the foundation of the scientific library on the campus. The pre-medical students, working with the assistance of the Galtes Chemistry Society, began the work of developing the library, for the benefit of students of the various branches of experimental science taught at the University. This recently established refer- ence department is conveniently located in the Alumni Science Hall. Back Row: Bruc Front Row: H. Smith, Meagher, Artz, Doherty, hy, Rev. E. Shipsey, San.

Founded to promote an interest in the classical tradition, and an appreciation of literature and the arts, the organization has made a noteworthy contribution to the campus life. Its program of activities includes several meetings during each year, at which papers on subjects of cultural interest are read by the members, and discussions on significant features of the University ' s arts course are held. The society pro- vides an opportunity for individual research and development to its members, and seeks to supply a classical and cultural background for their college courses. Arts Society men have an opportunity to measure the practical benefits of their work by writing essays, poetry, and short stories for the Santa Clara publi- cations. Rev. Edward Shipsey, advisor of the university monthly magazine, and head of the English Department, is moderator of the Arts Society. This year under Walter Von Der Ahe ' 37 the Arts-men increased membership by invitation only, and conducted their meetings like an informal pipe-smoking club.

SOCIETY Although not as active as usual in the early part of the 1936-37 scholastic year, the Block S. C. Society took a new lease on life, and once again established itself as one of the outstanding active organizations on the campus, during the second semester. The athletic organization this year functioned under two presidents, Frank Smith holding that office during the first term, and being supplanted by Louis Farasyn for the latter half of the year. Football playing members of the society, who will be lost through graduation are Nello Falaschi, Lionel Rodgers, Norman Finney, Frank Smith, Robert McGee, Richard Bassi, Don DeRosa, and Harold Seramin. Lettermen members of the basketball team who will be lost by gradua- tion are Charles Bannan and Nicholas Radunich. Graduating baseball lettermen are Roland Casassa, Robert McGuire, John Sweeney and Joseph Sullivan. Most noteworthy of Block S. C. productions was the variety show, which took place in Seifert Gymnasium on March 18. It combined professional and amateur talent, with exhibitions by students, members of the San Francisco Y. M. C. A., and professional and amateur champions in many different fields, including fencing, boxing, wrestling, weight-lifting, hand-balancing, rope-skipping and a number of unique performances. The show was generally conceded to be one of the best presentations of the year. Q 9 ffl. If • N 1 ' M i : i -i r " A] ■ fcL THE WOOLSACK The Lord High Chancellor of England ' s House of Lords sifs upon the Woolsack, when the House is in session. By association, generations of English barristers began to use " Woolsack " as a term denoting the office of chancellor, and later widened this application to designate various other legal groups and offices. When, two years ago, Santa Clara ' s hardworking legal students determined to form an honor society of their own, they chose the title " Woolsack " for it. The Woolsack was organized both for the purpose of supplying the lawyers with an objective for intensive work, and to manage all their extra-curricular affairs. To become a member of Woolsack, the applicant must have maintained an honor rating in academic work throughout the previous year. At present, there are four members in the legal club, including James Green, its Chancellor; James Arnerich, the Vice-Chancellor; Louis Doll, and Alfred Twigg. The honor society has been instrumental in developing the steadily-growing reputation of the Law School. Its frequent business meetings are held to discuss details of such legal activities as the annual Coolidge Competition, of which Woolsack has complete charge, and the yearly social functions of the group. ff.fLlf £ : Filippini, Thornton, W.

Hauck, Lautze, Green THE SENIOR SANCTUARY SOCIETY At once the oldest organization on the campus, and the strictest in membership requirements, the Senior Sanctuary Society traces its origin to the earliest days of Santa Clara. Since 1851, its members have devoted themselves to the special service of God by assisting the priests at Mass. A student must first be a member of the Senior Sodality to join the St. John Berchmanns ' Society, the acolytes constituting the inner circle of the Sodality. Further requirements demand that Sanctuary men be resident students of the University, rank high in their academic work, and give evidence that they possess the upright character and exemplary devotion necessary in those who minister during Mass. Duties of Sanctuary Society members consist in serving the Masses in the Mission Chapel, and administering in the other spiritual exercises. The organi- zation gathers monthly for a business meeting, during w hich the moderator, this year Rev. Herman Hauck, S. J., gives a devotional lecture and announces future plans. An annual winter banquet, and spring picnic, complete the Society ' s activities.

Since that date, this organization, whose purpose is the fostering of devotion to the Blessed Virgin, has been an integral part of the campus life. Until six years ago, there was but one Sodality in the University; however, in 1931, it was found advisable to form a separate organization for freshmen students. The activities of the Senior Sodality are divided into three branches. Of these, the first is a monthly Communion, at which both Senior and Freshmen Sodalists attend Mass and receive Communion in a body. The second is a monthly Bene- diction, preceding which the moderator delivers a short devotional lecture on the Blessed Virgin. A joint meeting of the Freshmen and Senior groups consti- tutes the third activity, at which members of the Sodality give short talks on some phase of Mary ' s life. During the past year, Jack Donovan ' 38 was prefect of the Senior Sodality, and Rev. Hugh C. Donavon, S. J., the University ' s Chaplain, was its moderator. fSft £3 o. .

Hauck, Wal: THE FRESHMAN SANCTUARY SOCIETY Begun in 1930, with an original membership of fifteen, the Freshman Sanctuary Society was instituted for the purpose of training freshman students in the man- ner of serving Mass, and to prepare them for entrance into the St. John Berch- manns ' Society, which is made up of upperclass acolytes. Since that time, it has maintained the high standards established by the charter group, and this year was composed of nineteen first-year men. Since the privilege of serving the Masses at the main altar of the Mission Chapel is reserved for members of the Senior Sanctuary Society, the principal duty of the freshman acolytes is assisting the priests at the six side altars of the Chapel. At the frequent meetings of the Society, its moderator, Rev. Herman Hauck, S. J., delivered devotional lectures, at which he stressed the importance of a thorough knowledge of the significance of the Mass, for those who were striving to become more proficient servers. In addition to these talks, the moderator con- ducted instruction classes, at which he suggested corrections and improvements in the manner in which the freshmen served Mass, and thus prepared them for entrance into the Senior Society.

Hoyt, Walsh, Thorn, McGinty THE FRESHMAN SODALITY Previous to 1930, freshmen who intended to become members of the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin were considered postulants to that organization during their first year in the University, due to the fact that the Sodality was made up of sophomores and upperclassmen only. However, the Chaplain perceived the necessity of uniting the prospective Sodalists, in order to preserve their interest in the movement, and stimulate their personal sanctity and devotion. For that reason, the Freshman Sodality was established, and has, since that time, played an important part in the spiritual life of Santa Clara. Its field of activity is closely linked with that of the Senior Sodality, and nearly all its func- tions are held in conjunction with those of the upper branch of the devotional body. Once each month, the combined members of the two Sodalities attend Mass and receive Communion together; in addition, the monthly Sodality Benediction, accompanied by a devotional address from the moderator, is given for their benefit. Membership in the Freshman Sodality reached forty this year, under the leadership of John Chapman, the prefect during 1936-37, and the organization ' s seventh year was one of increased activity and effectiveness. usMMmim Back Row: Gaspar, A.

Lautze, Dingacci, Brady, O ' Brien, Prof. Van Perre, Sanor, Davis, Lemke, Masco THE BAND Definitely, this year was one of accomplishment for the University of Santa Clara Band. To keep pace with the success of an outstanding football team is difficult, but the band, under the direction of Clemmen Van Perre, succeeded by enlarging its membership from forty to fifty; by presenting half-time entertain- ment at important games and by increasing its marching cadence. This last improvement added effective smartness to the organization both in its drilling and its actual playing. Block letter formations in that same lively tempo lent color to local games. In extending musical welcome to returning gridmen, and by lead- ing many a pre-game rally the band performed notable service to the school. Of interest to music lovers is the Annual University Band Concert. This year, unusual success marked its presentation. Outstanding in a pleasurable program was a medley of airs from " Faust " played in the rhythm and mood of many lands. The University Glee Club also participated. Featured solo instruments were the trombone, cornet, accordion and piano. The band participated in the University ' s first military review. Its principle trip this year as a unit was to Los Angeles where its presence was effective in earning cm athletic victory over Loyola University. w T-m HT T Back Row: Davis, Sylva, Mascovich, Filippi, Woods, Hartwig, Sousa Sitting: Turturici, Scimeca, Odegaard, De Diego, Li I ley, Prof. Van Perre, O ' Brien, Brady THE ORCHESTRA Emphasis on instrumental musical organizations here at Santa Clara seems traditionally to alternate between the band and the orchestra. During 1933 and 1934 for example, the orchestra was undoubtedly in the ascendancy. In 1933 the organization took an active part in an outstanding Passion Play by furnishing musical background for important scenes. At that time many stringed instru- ments were available on the campus, but few brass instrument players could be found. Hence, there existed a large and active orchestra and a small, seldom used band. Since that time the balance of instrumental ability has shifted. The last two years found a prominent band, with but few students able to play stringed instruments. Important then, but not numerous were the activities of the past school year that called on the services of the University Orchestra. Entr ' acte music for dramatic productions of the Clay M. Green Players was often supplied. These included three one-act plays, the Annual Dramatic Art Contest, " Ceiling Zero, " and the spring production, " Murder in the Cathedral. " In the Owl Oratorical Contest and in the Ryland Debate the orchestra also pro- vided musical diversion. Its concluding service and last appearance of the year under the direction of Professor Clemmens Van Perre is the participation in the Annual Commencement exercises. Front Row: W. C ley, Barton, Ryan, Sullivan is, Artz, Sanguinetti, H, Smith THE CHOIR A new idea filled an old need, when, this year, for the first time in the Uni- versity ' s history, a student choir, under student direction, was organized. Previ- ously, in the hushed silence of early morning, generations of under-graduates had filed to the Mission Chapel for their bi-weekly Holy Mass. But always a colorful part of the Mass was missing, for no vocal offerings accompanied their prayers. Rev. Hugh C. Donavon, S. J., perceived this need, and, under his encour- agement, the Student Week-Day Choir sang its first faltering Kyrie, and finally emerged as a vigorous campus organization. Naturally, the little chorus met difficulties in its first year of existence. But with admirable perseverance, rehearsals were conducted, and, in spite of all obsta- cles, the chorus perfected itself. In the Spring semester, it was called upon to produce a radio program in which original student compositions were sung with marked success. In the hope of a more varied program, Student Director George Artz, Jr., turned the efforts of the group toward a cappella singing. Although more difficult than customary hymn interpretations, it offered the students greater opportunities for individual improvement, and served as a pleasant culmination of the year ' s activities.

Over a local radio station Coach " Buck " Shaw discussed the prospects of the coming season, while in four part harmony, the Glee Club lent vocal color under the direction of Clemmens Van Perre. Later in the school year the Club was called upon to produce an entire radio program. It was pleasantly varied and consisted of both solo and chorus singing. The " Winter ' s Song " and " Boar ' s Head Tavern " were among the more effective numbers. The highlight of the year ' s accomplishments was the drawing up and accept- ance of a written constitution and by-laws. Although the Glee Club ' s history is almost as venerable as the University itself, no formal document of organization had ever been composed. Richard Barton ' 37, president of the club, drew up a constitution which was unanimously accepted by the members. It was then submitted to Father Rector whose approval officially recognized the Glee Club as a University organization. In order to aid the Band and, at the same time, to successfully terminate the year ' s activities, the Glee Club presented two groups of songs in the University Annual Band Concert. The negro love song, " Cloe, " and, although of entirely different type, " Going Home, " from the New World Symphony, also caused much favorable comment. Back Row: Helfrich, Schweitzer, Thelen, Porter it Row: O ' Brien, Prudhomme, Dr. Deck, R. O ' Co THE GALTES CHEMISTRY SOCIETY Rev. Paul Galtes, S. J., contributed so notably to the scientific advancement of the University, that an organization was founded in his honor. Arising out of the necessity for unity among the science students, the Galtes Chemistry Society was founded in 1935 for the purpose of supplying its members with practical experience in applied chemistry, and as a supplement to their theory courses. Contributions to the campus at large include lectures by prominent men on subjects of a scientific nature, and the arrangement of novel demonstrations at the University. Inspection tours through local industrial plants have become a part of the club ' s regular program. This year, under the direction of Edward Prudhomme ' 37, and their faculty advisor, Dr. Deck, head of the department of chemistry, these periodic educational trips have played an increasingly im- portant part in the activities of the organization. In conjunction with the Mendel Biological Society, the chemistry club assisted in the foundation of a scientific library, to be at the disposal of all Santa Clara technical students. The Galtes Society was invited this year, for the first time, to prepare a display which was a part of the Engineers ' Day exhibitions. 0 1 M T. McDonald, Doll, Gaspar, Burke DAY SCHOLARS Non-resident students of Santa Clara belong to an organization whose purpose is to strengthen the bond between themselves and the students who live on the campus. The modern history of the Day Scholar ' s Association dates from 1934, when the group was reorganized after a period of inactivity. Aware that the most important function of the club is to foster increased par- ticipation in University activities by the non-resident members of the student- body, leaders of the movement have bent every effort to sponsor social functions, and co-operate with all student-body committees which regulate campus affairs. During the past year, William Gaspar officiated as president of the Day Scholars, and directed the activity-program of the group. At the regular weekly meetings of the organization, its members discuss details of various student functions in which they actively engage, and appoint representatives who assist the Student Council. The Day Scholars contributed to the social life of the University twice during the past year, by sponsoring two highly successful dances. The first of these affairs was held early in the Fall, and the second in April, for the benefit of resident students. SPANISH CLUB ITALIAN CLUB THE ITALIAN AND SPANISH CLUBS As a result of the growing interest displayed by students of the Romance lan- guages at Santa Clara, two clubs, the Italian and Spanish organizations, have appeared during recent years. They were organized with the object of promoting appreciation of the tongues themselves, and to preserve the traditions of the peoples who played an important part in the founding of the Mission. The Italian Club, first to be established, was founded three years ago under the guidance of Prof. Uberto Olivieri; its success prompted Prof. Pablo Avila to organize a similar body for the Spanish students. Though organized this year, and the infant society on the campus, the Spanish group is following the older language club in its active yearly program. The program of both groups include banquets, addresses by men prominent in international affairs, and frequent discussional meetings. Students in the University of Italian or Spanish heritage, as well as those en- rolled in the respective language classes, are eligible for membership.

He was Lawrence T. " Buck " Shaw, who, rising from his position as assistant coach, filled the vacancy left by " Clipper " Smith. Frosh Coach Al Ruffo was made assistant mentor, and Len Casanova took charge of the yearlings. Despite the rather shady prospects, a new spirit arose on the practice field. It was a willingness to learn, a determination to do good. With " Buck " teaching the plays in his quiet, instructive manner, and Al, the fiery, inspirational driving force, keeping the team at work, the Broncos rolled on to their greatest year in history. Credit of the highest degree should also be given Trainer Henry Schmidt, who was a motivating force to the ' 36 eleven, his posters and jolly, animated self encouraging the squad immensely. Manager Ray Volpe ' 38, with his assistants, worked unceasingly during the Broncos ' epochal rise.

The first score was chalked up by Pavelko from the four yard stripe, to which point Seramin had com- pleted a pass to De Rosa. Ev Fisher accounted for the second tally after a seventy-five yard sustained drive. After a blocked kick put the ball in Bronco posses- sion, Jim Smith plunged over in three plays.

The third period found, the second string scoring on a long pass from Barlow to Perrin that gained forty-nine yards.

Two quickly and perfectly-executed sustained drives netted both Bronco scores early in the first half. With Falaschi blocking ahead of him, Norm Finney made six points on an end-around. When Alabama Poly failed to gain in two series of plays, the Broncos started another offensive march, which culminated in a long pass from De Rosa to Gomez for the second score. The inter-sectional classic found the Broncos supe- rior throughout. jRUNO PELLEGRINI HAL SERAMIN halfback Santa Clara 19 St. Mary ' s Santa Clara 19, St. Mary ' s 0, read the scoreboard. And few of the 61,000 persons could deny the Bronco superiority. Falaschi, determined to end the long-succession of Gael victories, called a pass on fourth down, deep in Moraga territory. The Gomez to De Rosa combina- tion clicked to put the ball on the six, and two plays later, Gomez caught De Rosa ' s toss in the end zone. Three minutes afterwards, Pavelko recovered a Gael fumble. Bruno Pellegrini brought the ball to the nine marker, then, after being held for three plays, Gomez shot a scoring pass to Finney. Li Rodgers added a third touchdown when he scooped up a blocked Gael kick and ran over. i prn LI RODGERS DICK BASSI LOU FARASYN Santa Clara 13 Loyola 6 Scared by a first-minute Loyola touchdown, Santa Clara came back with a powerful ground attack to down the Lion squad, 13-6, in the Los Angeles Coli- seum. In the first play of the game, De Rosa ' s pass was intercepted, and Byrne scored after two plays had brought the Loyolans to the one yard line. The Broncos drove to the Lion twenty late in the same quarter, where Falaschi ambled wide around end to pay dirt after failing to find a pass-receiver. Making use of superior kicking, Santa Clara ad- vanced the pigskin to the Loyola fourteen stripe from which point Pavelko plunged through center to go over standing up. Santa Clara Texas Christian 9 The nation ' s only undefeated-untied eleven, Santa Clara entered the Texas Christian game under a psychological " pressure " . Sammy Baugh completed the job that left the Broncos on the losing end of a 9-0 count. Falaschi ran an intercepted pass to the Horned Frog four yard line in the first guarter, but here the Bronco attack bogged down. Later in the same period, Seramin repeated, but his touchdown run was called back because of alleged clipping. Baugh passed to a score in the second, guarter with three bullet pitches. In the second half his long punts kept Santa Clara in the hole and paved the way for a T. C. U. field goal. EMKH DON DE ROSA halfback Santa Clara 2 1 Louisiana State 1 4 Engaging in the most important athletic event in the school ' s history— the Sugar Bowl Classic in New ' Orleans — Santa Clara proved itself the " nation ' s tops " by defeating Louisiana State, 21-14. Before the packed stadium had settled down, Ail- American , Falaschi had passed deceptively to Comez for a touchdown. With the stonewall defense of the Bronco line, aided by Pavelko ' s punting, keep- ing the Tigers back on their haunches, Santa Clara stunned the crowd again as Pellegrini hurled a long pass to Finney for another tally. The third touchdown came after one of many inter- cepted L. S. U. passes. Smith lateralled to Falaschi after he had been tackled on an end-around. 4A .O ,P 1 Rally Committee There is a certain amount of color associated with athletic events. This year at Santa Clara much of that color was lent by the Rally Committee and the Yell Leaders. All rallies, besides seating arrangements and stunts at the games, were " brain childs " of Director John Cost, who planned the traditional St. Mary ' s and Stanford rallies. Manuel Felciano, James O ' Toole, Paul Kelly, Paul Paganini, Harry and Norman Bayley made up the committee. Fred DeMaestri and his assistants, George Artz and Jack Hayes, kept up student body enthusiasm at all contests, and credit for some of the success of the athletic year should be given them and the Rally Committee. o 9 . a fcSz ,. 8 f »0 f asf 24f 40 f 4S f 48 fi9 | A % I0 t l t 4 4f i 3 f e f 5? ° ' €• « t S| , 7 f q ' 8 f IS f 7 |o 8 | 5? | J Back Row: Delmas, Stringari, Holman.

The Bronclets then swamped San Jose State by a score of 32-0. Hoyt scored in the first quarter, McCarthy in the second, Schiechl in the third, and both Hoyt and McCarthy in the final period. Still unscored-on, the Colts overcame California Polytechnic with Ball tallying in the first canto, and Hoyt in the third on a recovery of Hagan ' s fumble. The following week, U. S. F.

BASKETBALL BRONCO COACHES 9 . .f i ' P .f BAKS I JACK OTTEN Frosh Coach ARNOLD HUGHES Manager BA SKETBALL COACHES Two years ago when George Barsi arrived from Minnesota to take over the reins as head basketball coach, he was met by a galaxy of seasoned veterans. But in his second year, faced with the task of building a team with only three lettermen, a few inexperienced substitutes, and a group of green but willing sophomores, Coach Barsi went to work and showed the fans a team worthy of the name of Santa Clara Broncos. In his short time here, Barsi has developed many men who are destined to retain the high prestige of Santa Clara hoop teams. Rising from the ranks of the student body, Jack Often proved the most success- ful first year coach on the Pacific Coast. Otten gave Santa Clara its greatest freshman basketball team in the history of the mission institution, and has the possibilities of becoming a really great coach.

SERIES After conquering the Ccri-Aggie, Olympic Club, Oregon and Arizona quintets, the Broncos continued their winning ways by defeating College of the Pacific, 29-28, in the first Northern California Intercollegiate Conference game. Unlike their former victories, the contest was a nip and tuck affair until the final gun. Ed Shando sunk the winning basket in the last minute of play. The Santa Clarans found themselves completely off-form and never once during the wild tilt did either squad hold more than a three-point lead. Not until the insertion of Shando, Ayers, and the Lautze brothers were the Broncos able to turn the tide against the long-shooting Bengals. Once again the defensive work of Heffernan stood out. Failing to break the jinx that the Tigers held over them, the Broncos neverthe- less eked out a hair-raising 40-39 overtime victory in the second game, to capture the series. In contrast to the listless Santa Clarans, the C. O. P. five played well over their heads, sinking as well as following-up their long shots. Tied at the game ' s finish, Shando once again came through and insured victory for the Missionites in the extra period. Nelson attempts a tip-in and Radunich awaits the rebound. SAN JOSE STATE SERIES Decidedly off form, the varsity basketballers were forced to come from behind in the last few minutes of play in order to defeat the San Jose State Spartans, 38-36, in their second game of conference play. Kept in the running only by the sharpshooting of Sammy Anderson, the Broncos trailed at half-time 21-15. Fine defensive play by Pat Heffernan and Charlie Bannan held the inspired Spartan five in check during the second half, while the Bronco forwards managed to find the hoop for the much-needed points to gain the victory. Duplicating their feat of the initial game, the Broncos found their old form in the second half and proceeded to defeat the Spartans in easy fashion by a 36-25 score. Although trailing in the first half, the Santa Clarans had no trouble when Nick Radunich began running up the points. Playing his usual game, Nick managed to garner 17 points and was ably assisted by Anderson and Shando in this department of the game. Bannan and Heffernan continued to be the steadying influences on the team with their stellar guard games. the floor, Anderson stooping. U. S. F. SERIES Exhibiting an improving fast-break offense and an air-tight defense, the Santa Clara cagers trimmed the University of San Francisco, 34-25, in their initial en- counter. The Bronco quintet was neither headed nor tied after Stan Anderson opened the scoring with a toss from the seventeen-foot line. At half time the score stood 19-9. The Dons, held well in check by the close guarding of their opponents, were unable to work the ball into position for set-up shots. Only in the second half did the Hilltoppers start sinking their long shots, but their rally was staved off and the Broncos drew ahead with some spectacular shooting by Radunich and Shando. Surprised by a determined U. S. F. offense, Santa Clara was upset, 35-31, in their second contest, as the Dons gained a 10-2 advantage early in the game. Only through a breath-taking rally led by Ed Shando were the Broncos able to knot the score at nineteen all at the half. The Barsi-men drew ahead in the second canto as Bannan, who played one of his best games, sunk two in a row. But the Dons soon drew away, scoring re- peatedly on long, arching tosses. nderson pushes in a follow-up. ST. MARYS SERIES St. Mary ' s hoopsters copped their second series win in ten years when they defeated the Broncs in the California Intercollegiate Conference playoff. In the first encounter, Santa Clara jumped into an early lead, and, led by Sammy Anderson, who scored 24 points, gained a 16-8 lead at half-time. In the second period Barsi ' s smoothly -working quintet toyed with the smaller Moragans. Scared by a number of Laird ' s field goals, the Missionites again went into action and triumphed 45-38. In the following rough and tumble contest, marred by a record number of fouls, Jimmy Underbill ' s cagers forged ahead 19-18 at the half and won out 39-33. With sharpshooting Ed Shando and Bob Ayers storming the bucket, the Broncs drew up to 25 all, but Rockwell dropped in two in succession to draw away from the Barsi-men. Starting slowly in the play-off tilt, the mission court men garnered but eleven points in the first period. Poor ball-handling and floor work on the part of the Santa Clarans resulted in the final 39-32 score. The Gaels guarded their oppo- nents closely and broke themselves into scoring positions time and again. Anderson and Ayers held the Bronco limelight. Back Row: Felipe, Jurewicz, Giannini, Lacey, Booth, Dutton Front Row: Naughton, Ryan, Nemecek, Janeczek, Claudon FRESHMAN BASKETBALL Under the tutelage of Coach Jack Otten, the frosh cagers developed into one of the most successful freshman basketball teams ever produced at Santa Clara. After three successive local wins over Bellarmine, St. James, and Veneto, the yearlings traveled to Santa Rosa and received their first defeat by the high school there in an overtime game by a 45-42 score. In rapid succession Otten ' s five knocked over St. Ignatius, Polytechnic, San Jose State, and Sacramento J. C. Then victories over the U. S. F. and California Frosh in closely contested games put them among the outstanding freshman teams of the coast. Coming out as victors twice over St. Mary ' s, defeated once by U. S. F., con- quering San Jose again, and completing the season by overcoming the Stanford Frosh, 52-43, the Colt hoopsters left an enviable record. Throughout the season Gianinni scored more points than any other of his teammates. Felipe, who ranked second in scoring, proved invaluable with Jure- wicz, Claudon or Gianinni as a scoring combination. Dutton and Scholk, em- ploying remarkable floor-work, were mainly responsible for the comparatively few points scored by opponents. BASEBALL BRONCO COACHES JUSTIN FITZGERALD LEN CASANOVA Frosh Coach george McCarthy Manager BASEBALL COACHES Declared one of the ablest " Professors " of baseball in the west, Coach Justin Fitzgerald, ex-major leaguer, directed the destinies of the 1937 Santa Clara base- ball team. Beloved by all who have had contact with him, the inspiring Bronco leader has never been called " coach " to his face. The only name he will recog- nize is " Fitz. " One of the finest place hitters to grace major league circuits, " Fitz ' s " brilliant playing career came to an abrupt end when he incurred an arm injury after a throwing exhibition. He returned to his alma mater to coach and develop young stars. This season " Fitz " faced the problem of forming a team from green material as well as transfers, with six returning lettermen as a foundation for the nine. Freshman baseball was revived at Santa Clara this year with Coach Leonard Casanova, yearling football tutor, at the helm. Rapidly weaving his fine pros- pects into a winning combination, " Cas " developed many players who will prove valuable to the varsity in coming seasons. iw: McCarthy, Sweeney, McGuire, Blaettler, C. Schmidt, Del Biaggio, Sullivan, Fi Front Row: Casassa, Garbarino, Bertolani, Schmidt, Bricca, Radunich, Pellegrini ST. MARYS SERIES The Broncos lagged through an unpleasant baseball series with St. Mary ' s this season. Three times the two schools met and three times Santa Clara failed to equal the Gael ' s total by more than six runs. The scores were: 13-6, 12-5, and 9-1. More than three thousand fans watched the Broncos drop the series opener, 13-6, in the Seals Stadium in San Francisco. After trailing, 3-2, for five innings, Pitcher Les Bricca became wild and his teammates followed suit. TEAM St. Mary ' s Santa Clara. H Batteries: Flanagan, Merrill, Greenlaw, and Bourne; Bricca, Selenger, Gar- barino, Sullivan, and Pellegrini, Dusina. The second St. Mary ' s-Santa Clara tilt, which was played on Ryan Field, was a replica of the first. The Mission nine was behind 6-4 until the seventh inning when a barrage of Gael hits and a prolonged series of Santa Clara errors drove Pitcher Nick Radunich to shelter. The final score was twelve to five. In the final meeting of the two teams, St. Mary ' s mercilessly hammered bingles off the deliveries of Selenger, Bricca, and Bertolani to turn in a convincing nine to one win. -a: % STANFORD SERIES For the first five innings of the Bronco league opener with Stanford, the Indians were held in check by " Dooley " Bertolani. After two runs in the sixth gave the Cards a 5-2 lead, Bertolani was relieved by Les Bricca, who went into the eighth inning with the score tied, 5-5. This frame spelled doom for the Broncos as Bricca was batted from the box. " Lefty " Selenger replaced him. The game ended 10-5. The second game of the series resulted in the same score. Bob Furman handled the mound chores for Stanford, while Bertolani, Bricca and Selenger pitched for Santa Clara. The Stanford batters again clubbed every offering of the three Bronco chuckers, to win the series. Captain Casassa and Curt Schmidt played brilliantly for Fitzgerald ' s nine. With Bronco errors as frequent as Stanford hits, Nick Radunich lost the third straight to the Cardinals, 4-1. Holding the Wolters-coached squad scoreless for five innings, and leading 1-0, Santa Clara blew the game. Two hits, two walks, together with the same number of errors, cinched the ball game for the Palo Altons. After Rasmussen got in trouble in the sixth, Weierhauser came in and took command. U. S. C. SERIES Blanked by Joe Gonzales, 7-0, Santa Clara ' s Bertolani, Bricca and Selenger were in trouble throughout the U. S. C. series opener. Nick Radunich pitched the Missionites to their first win, shading the Trojans, 6-4. The southern California squad could not halt the bombardment of Schmidt, Casassa and Del Baggio. A pitcher ' s duel between Radunich and Gonzales in the final game saw U. S. C. winning, 8-7, in a ten inning thriller. Santa Clara led 7-6 going into the ninth, but errors again spelled defeat. The hitting of Blaettler and Schmidt was one of the game ' s highlights. U. C. L. A. SERIES The U. C. L. A. series opened with Santa Clara losing, 13-10, after taking an early lead in a free-hitting contest. Neither Bertolani, Bricca or Selenger could hold the Bruins. With Radunich on the mound again, the S. C. squad nosed out the Uclans, 10-7. After U. C. L. A. had forged ahead in the eighth, Santa Clara retaliated when Johnny Changala homed in the final frame with three and two on him, two down, and the bases full, to win the game. Late in the season, U. C. L. A. captured the series, thumping Santa Clara, 1 1-4. Radunich, Selenger and Bricca were batted freely by the Bruins, Pellegrini ' s homer being the only Bronco highlight of the day. Pellegrini finishes the last lap of a homer CALIFORNIA SERIES Another team to boost its conference standings at the expense of the unfortu- nate Santa Clara baseballers was the University of California. The Bears scored a clean sweep of the annual three-game series, 9-5, 6-2, and 19-8. In the first tilt, staged on Edwards Field, Berkeley, the Broncos went into the eighth inning with a 5 to 4 lead. With two outs and the bases loaded, Dave McNeil, California outfielder, southpawed one of Les Bricca ' s offerings for a three-bagger, starting the Bear rout. Nick Radunich and Bill Priest, California curve-ball artist, had been pitching nip and tuck mound battle until the eighth episode when temporary wildness forced Coach Justin Fitzgerald to relieve Radunich. Taking advantage of seven Bronco errors, the Bears won an easy 6 to 2 deci- sion in the second game. Priest and Radunich once more opposed each other. In the final game of the series, Santa Clara closed its season by losing to Cali- fornia, 19 to 8, on Ryan Field. The Bears scored in every inning but the eighth. Roche, Edge, Claudon, Patterson, Scholk, Ze W. Filippi, Morey, Alba Battaglia, Naughton, Booth FRESHMAN BASEBALL Despite the rains which handicapped practice and postponed many of the early contests, the frosh baseball team under Coach Len Casanova gave promise of a future varsity that will reach a new high for Santa Clara baseball during the next three years. Catcher Roche was one of the most outstanding players on the nine, and should fill that position on the 1938 varsity. Claudon, Albanese, and Patterson, constituting the pitching staff, were mainly responsible for the yearling success. Edge, as first baseman and relief pitcher, advanced to one of the leading hitters. Filippi and Battaglia at second and third, and Morey at shortstop covered the infield and scored their share of the runs. McGowan in left field, Hagan in center, Naughton in right, and Scholk as an alternate, contributed their parts to the enviable record. The outstanding games were a split series with St. Mary ' s and San Jose State frosh, two victories over S. F. J. C, defeats by Sacramento and Galileo Highs, and a win over Palo Alto prep. As THE REDWOOD went to press after their twelfth game had been played, eight of which the frosh captured, the remaining scores were not available. MINOR SPORTS fj ft § : m uh mm m to Back Row: Kelly, McGuffin, Puppo, Bruce, H. Bayley, Cost, Green, Gearin, Mgr. Front Row: Arata, Mascovich, Badame, Williams, Chiaramonte, O ' Hara, Petit, Gomes, Burke BOXING After several years of development, boxing has come into prominence as one of Santa Clara ' s minor sports. Under the able direction of Al Ruffo, a strong team was formed. Although the season was unduly short, the boxers consoled them- selves in the fact that two men were sent to Sacramento for the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Tournament. Julio Chiaramonte captured the 165-pound cham- pionship, and heavyweight John Misegades barely lost in the semi-finals. The two-man team thus won fourth place for Santa Clara. The champions of the various divisions were Misegades in the heavyweight class, Harry Bayley in the 179 class, Chiaramonte, who besides aiding Ruffo, held the 169-pound title, Larry Kirsch in the 159-pound division, John O ' Hara and George Arata in the 149 and 139 classes, and Bantamweight James Badame. G ordon Gearin acted as manager. With a foundation firmly established this year, it is hoped that a more complete schedule will be offered next season. The return of the seven champions together with such men as Bruce and Anahu, who were out because of injuries, and John Mascovich, Santa Clara will be prominent in Pacific Coast boxing. ft § ?- k g c A £7 it Back Row: Dodd, Kahn, Eyrond, Sullivan, Artz, Bars! Front Row: Leake, Kauffman, Buckley, Turturici, Lewis ::■: TENNIS Potentially the strongest tennis squad ever to grace the mission courts, Santa Clara ' s racquet-wielders, led by number one man Don Dodd, opened their season with a close 5 to 4 win over San Mateo Junior College. Following this expected start, they overwhelmed Menlo J. C, 8 to 1, and commenced their Northern California Intercollegiate Conference schedule by trimming San Fran- cisco State, 6 to 3. On the heels of their initial league victory, however, came a surprising upset at the hands of the U. S. F. netters, and still another setback by San lose State, 5 to 4. Up to this point the six-man Bronco team were conceded a chance to finish their season undefeated. In the third league match, the Broncos downed San Francisco State again, 6 to 3. Following top-ranking Dodd on the team were steady Norvin Lewis, Captain Bob Sullivan, Dave Buckley, Tony Turturici, and Freshman Bill Kauffman, the only court man without former varsity experience. The doubles matches saw Dodd teamed with Buckley, Sullivan paired with Lewis, and Kauffman supple- mented by Turturici. George Artz and Bill Hendricks acted as capable substitutes. Back Row: Cost, Gearin, Maier, N. Bayley Front Row: Meagher, Mc Gurk, Robinson, Filippon SWIMMING Swimming, as in former years at Santa Clara, enjoyed its usual amount of attention rom the student body. In the spacious, heated plunge housed in Seifert gymnasium, both fall and spring interclass meets were held. In the initial affair the frosh broke an old tradition to upset the favored sophomores and score a total of forty-three points. The sophomores, juniors and seniors followed in that order, totalling nineteen, sixteen, and nine points respectively. John Filipponi of the first year men tallied sixteen digits, heading the fields in the dives and the 100-yard backstroke, as well as swimming on the two winning frosh relay teams. His classmates, Burke McDonald and Bill Toomey, took firsts in the 50-yard backstroke and 50-yard breaststroke events respectively. For the sophomores, Charles Haid defeated all comers in the 50-yard free style, and Milton Piuma won the plunge for distance. Jack Maier of the juniors took the 100 and 220 free style events. Classes in swimming instruction offered daily by Maier were surprisingly well attended. Next year it is expected that a representative swimming team will be organized to meet local schools. ! I V £ la Back Row: Often, Williams, Sweeney, J. O ' Hara, Pelfini Front Row: Goodell, Casassa, D. Brown, J. Breen, Garratt INTRAMURAL SPORTS Intramural sports at Santa Clara reached a peak of popularity this season never before attained at the mission institution. George Barsi ' s first move as minor sports coach on his arrival here two years ago was the promoting of this important phase of student life. The program consisted of interclass tournaments in touch football, handball, tennis, swimming, basketball, softball and track that stirred up keen rivalry as well as provided an excellent source of exercise in which all were able to par- ticipate. Besides receiving a number of points for emerging victorious in an event, the members of a winning team were awarded medals. A proportionate number of points was given the other classes according to their standings. Although unde- termined as yet, the class compiling the largest score will have their name engraved on a large intramural trophy. The seniors captured the touch football and handball events, while the fresh- men came out on top in the tennis and swimming meets. To the sophomores went the basketball championship. Although golf was not on the intramural program, the six-man team consisting of Hutcheson, O ' Connor, Locke, Kilkenny, and Clarke, placed high in the Northern California Intercollegiate Conference.
