EDWARD J. ZEMAN, S.J. Treasurer REV. WILLIAM C. GIANERA, S.J. Dean of the Faculties REV. JAMES H. STREHL, S.J. Minister REV. GEORGE A. GILBERT, S.J. Curator of Museums Santa Clara, oldest college in the West, embodies the happy medium between its characteristic traditions and the necessity of " keeping up with the times. " Steeped in the ideas and ideals of the great Catholic educators of past days, the Uni- versity nevertheless has been far from re- luctant to accept new and approved trends in matters both educational and adminis- trative. Rev. Louis C. Rudolph, S.J., Presi- dent of Santa Clara, has guided the des- tinies of the Mission School accordingly. With a keen understanding of the various executive problems that beset the author- ities of a university, Father Rudolph has judiciously selected men who can capa- bly fill the demands occasioned by their positions. In charge of disciplinary matters, Rev. J. P. O ' Connell, S.J., Vice-President of Santa Clara, has efficiently handled a post which often necessitates long work and careful judgments. As Moderator of the Passion Play he proved an excellent administrator for Santa Clara ' s most famed dramatic pro- duction. Liked and respected for his unceasing ef- forts to maintain a high scholastic standard in the University, Rev. W. C. Gianera, S.J., Dean of the Faculties, is one of the main factors in keeping Santa Clara ' s scholastic reguirements on a level with any Uni- versity in the United States. Since his Page Ten THE REDWOOD • 1939 REV. LOUIS C. RUDOLPH, S.J. President REV. JOHN P. O ' CONNELL, S.J. Vice-President tenure at the School, he has seen the Law College, the College of Engineering and the Pre-Medical department gain the sanc- tion of the leading accrediting associations in their respective fields. Rev. Edward J. Zeman, Treasurer, is a new member of the institution ' s executive board, but the guiet and efficient manner in which he has discharged his duties has already merited him the praise of the stu- dents and parents to whom financial mat- ters are of prime importance. Content to remain behind the scenes, Rev. James H. Strehl, S.J., Minister, is typical of those men at the University who satisfac- torily perform their necessary duties in school administration unrecognized by the majority of individuals. Officially called " Curator of the Museums, " Rev. George A. Gilbert, S.J., Supervisor of the Grounds, has won the unanimous plaudits of students and visitors not only for constantly improving the museums of the University, but also for his untiring work in making the Mission campus one of the beautiful spots of the West. With such stimulating surroundings it is little wonder that Santa Clara students take pride in ex- hibiting " their " campus to their parents, relatives and friends. With the assistance of head gardener Robert Coward, Father Gilbert has spared no effort to add to the beauty and usefulness of the grounds. Recognizing these facts, serious-minded Santa Clarans regard with admiration the workman-like and efficient administration of the executive faculty of the University. Fortunate are they who take the utmost advantage of the unselfish work of those in charge. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Eleven DEAN EDWARD J.

Here are found those with majors in any one of a number of subjects including Eng- lish, History, Political Science or Chem- istry. And it is the ranks of those registered in the College of Arts and Sciences that the men are found who direct and carry on Santa Clara ' s extensive extra-curricular program. Staffs of the campus publications, the mem- bership of the debating societies and the dramatic group are composed mainly of Artsmen. Their scholastic schedule is usually less taxing than that of the Engi- neers, who, for example, spend long ses- sions in the laboratory to complete their lengthy assignments. Thus, the Arts scholar is expected to take advantage of his leisure time by participating in the extra-curricular activity or activities of his choice.

Final examina- tions not far away. Senior artsmen making their exit in a frenz ied burst of studying and writing. That ' s the traditional way the graduating members of the senior class spend their last weeks in college and a lasting impression of what they did and what could have done is firmly impressed on their minds as they prepare to leave the walls of their Alma Mater. Then the successful completion of the final examinations and the seniors are, in real- ity, alumni to-be. A guiet, meditative, in- spiring (no worries now) spiritual retreat is given. Baccalaureate Mass and then the climax of four years of alternate studying, relaxing, talking and sacrifice is realized as they receive their diplomas at the com- mencement exercises. This year ' s class was no exception and in- habitants of Nobili Hall witnessed with mixed admiration and amusement the efforts of Francis Sanguinetti to devote his THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Twenty-three talents to three publications, recover from the strain of the Passion Play, and study; or Ken Leake in managing a baseball club, playing on the tennis team, working on the " Redwood " and finishing up an original es- say for a prize contest; or Hugh Smith pre- paring for a debate, penning his thesis, and lining up radio programs; or Bill Bruce in essays, studies, and executive duties as Senior class president; or Student Body President John O ' Hara as he sought to put a successful close to one of Santa Clara ' s greatest years. Meanwhile, a junior class, headed by Paul Claudon keenly watched the frantic plight of the seniors, determined not to put them- selves in the same position next year. Es- says and theses, resolved such top-ranking Artsmen as Oscar Odegaard, Art Milhaupt, Tom Davis, Leon Williams, Bill Anahu and John Doherty are not to be put off till the last moment. But probably next year ' s junior artsmen will see the recurrence of the above events. Other anxious juniors, after their first orals in philosophy at the close of the term, vowed to prepare long in advance next year. The outstanding successes of the class in- cluded the staging of one of the best Proms in the memory of upperclassmen, the re- taining of the intramural championship trophy for the second consecutive year, and the publishing of the " Redwood " by a staff composed mainly of third year men. Ranking among its members were a num- ber of star athletes — Ray McCarthy, Jack Roche, Bill Anahu, " Toddy " Giannini, John Schiechl, Joe Felipe, Paul Claudon, Bill Filippi, Clay McGowan and Dale Case. Their cooperation in the class ' s numerous activities lent both prestige and valuable aid to the extra-curricular success of the third year men.

Dramatics numbered several juniors in its productions also — namely, Edward Sullivan, Leon Williams, and Rob- ert Lilley. Sophomore artsmen are also under the obligation to turn in essays of not less than 5000 words as an assurance of upper- class standing. Aside from this scholastic chore sophomore arts students are com- paratively free to indulge at will in extra- curricular activities of their choosing. Leading debaters Dwan, Engstrom and Healy had a busy year with outstanding appearances in the Foch and Ryland Debates. Meanwhile Alan Williams, Pat McGarry, Arthur Olsen, and Lloyd Alaga devoted a good share of their time to de- veloping their literary talents by working on various campus publications. Pre-medi- cal students Jimmy Flippen and Joe Giansiracusa show that their straight-A records are the result of intensive labor- atory work, as well as personal ability, while Fred Weaver, a day scholar, is one of the outstanding students and leaders of the off-campus scholars. William McGuire, prominent boarder, became one of the few sophomores to win the annual Owl Orator- ical Contest by out-speaking the School ' s best. Under the enthusiastic leadership of Rob- ert Owen, sophomore artsman, the second year students reached new heights in class enthusiasm and accomplishments. Their fine showing in sponsoring some of the best dances on the campus, in competing for the intramural cup, and in other fields of non- academic endeavor stamps them as one of the best organized groups on the campus. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Twenty-five Their presence was also felt in athletics: Jim Johnson, Dick Clark, Bill Grul, Bruce Hale, Johnny Hanna, Marty Passaglia, Bob Feerick, and Russ Lebeck furnished the im- pe tus to Bronco athletic squads, resulting in one of the school ' s greatest years from that standpoint. In like manner, one of the main reasons for Santa Clara ' s all-around success with her vigorous and large program of extra-cur- ricular events has been the wholehearted participation of the freshman arts students in such programs. Although handicapped by lack of organization at the beginning of the term, class president Dave Noonan had the satisfaction of seeing his constituents execute a very successful dance idea in the Lounge Room. Edward Hurbutt, Roger Garety, Rollie Jones, James Tupy, John Mullen, James Mc- Kenna, Donald Driscoll, Michael Hayes, William Brady and Leo Murphy all were outstanding in Santa Clara activities. In addition, the athletic squads of Kenna Hall wrote athletic history for the third consecu- tive year in three lines of sports. To cite one college for contributing a number of stars would be unfair; nevertheless, such arts- men as Dick Mangan, Gus Paglia, Ned Sheehan, John Collins, Leo Murphy, Bill Royer, Frank Zmak, George Poppin, Ken- neth Casanega and Frank Petersen proved to be great additions to the athletic pros- pects of the University. £ «J Pi XL CI ,JL CI Mm IS 4a. ■ ' AB At Mk „ mi, P 1 ft %»«, ■ 4 i kmh s 1 First Row: Kelly, Lawrence, Lebeck, Lewis, Limpert, Linsenmeyer, Litschi, Lorentz, Lounibos.

This important field in the swiftly changing economic world of today affords Santa Clara ' s College of Business Administration ample opportunity to offer a variety of courses to its students with the express pur- pose of training them to meet the general as well as specific problems of modern industry. Under the expert supervision of Dean Edward J. Kelly, the youngest college of the University has steadily increased in popularity and prestige during the past few years as a result of capable instruc- tion, efficient laboratory facilities and an excellent reference library. In order that today ' s business student will not be confined to a narrow path of spe- cialization, certain courses in the College of Arts and Sciences are included in their prescribed curriculum, and others are open as electives. In addition, participation in a limited number of extra-curricular activ- ities is highly encouraged by the depart- ment. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Twenty-nine CLASS OF 1939 . . .

THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Thirty-one Junior Businessmen Long hours of accounting work as well as study makes the business man ideally pre- pared to enter into that field after gradua- tion accustomed to labor and sacrifice. Senior Orals, thoroughly covering the work of the preceding business courses, test the mettle and I.Q. of any prospective gradu- ate. Then, too, the obligation of turning in a lengthy thesis is incumbent upon the fu- ture business executives and accountants. This year ' s graduating class was espe- cially marked by brilliance in scholarship and school cooperation. Richard and Rob- ert Lautze proved to be two of the best business students in the history of the col- lege, while participating in sports, sodality and sanctuary activities. Jerry Kelleher, another outstanding graduate, was the highest ranking officer in the cadet corps. Richard Campodonico was especially ac- tive in student body work and under his guidance in School ' s long-awaited for so- cial program was finally inaugurated. Bruno Pellegrini and Ed Shando also dis- proved the statement that athletes hardly ever make the grade as Business students. John Hayes was school yell leader, while Ed Walker participated in both the R.O.T.C. and the school band. Junior business students continued their hard pace, realizing that even stricter re- guirements will be fostered on them next Fall as a result of becoming accredited to another association. Outstanding athletes were numbered among the ranks of the best students — Frank Hagan, George Ham- ilton, Nicholas Stubler and Robert Scholk. Al Grisez and Milton Molinari also proved to be class leaders. Sophomore and freshmen students in the College are still somewhat undergoing a selective process. A number are forced to drop each term because of the School ' s rigid scholastic demands. Among those who proved to be as active in studies as in other extra-curricular events were William DeCoursey, Donald Engstrom, John Hart- mann, Steve Cardwell, Larry LeSage and Charles Carlguist. r w fi .O f l (fc l;fc A ▲ First Row: Bailey, Ball, Changala, Cronan, Cumming, de la Guardia, Eyrond.

THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Thirty-three ni 1 1 1 1. 1 OF Page Thirty-four THE REDWOOD • 1939 nin,miiiH The Twentieth Century, a thousand years or so hence, will probably be known as " the age of builders. " Ever since the possi- bilities of steel construction were first dem- onstrated in the Eiffel Tower, construction has become bigger, and, what is more im- portant, better. Before that period such structures as the modern skyscraper, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Grand Coulee Dam were impossible even in theory, let alone in practice. But, due to the ever-advancing skill and knowledge of the engineer, America and the world have become immeasurably richer, thousands of hours have been saved every day, and millions of acres have been made habit- able for men. Now new problems are beginning to con- front the engineer. Not only must he be a technician, but more and more the neces- sity arises that he be an economist, a busi- ness man and an administrator. Engi- neering projects are not built just for size, but they are investments which must pay for their cost and their upkeep. In a lesser degree, this is true of small projects as well as large. Dean Sullivan ' s College has witnessed this development, and has for some time included courses in Economics and Engineers ' Law in the regular curricu- lum in addition to Civil, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineering.

SUB-SENIORS STEPHEN GRAHAM ALVORD WOLFF THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Thirty-seven Four years of long, drawn out class ses- sions and difficult outside assignments are the lot of those entering the Engineering School. Glimpsed at rare intervals from eight to four, the engineers are certainly the most active of the undergraduates. Nevertheless the society has a reputation and a facility for " getting things done " . Their dances are not soon forgotten, their work on the bonfire is always a success, and their cooperation in aiding other school functions is always forthcoming. A great share of the praise for this unfail- ing aid and enthusiasm can be traced to the leadership inspired by this year ' s graduating seniors, under the nominal head of James Breen, president of the Society of Engineers. Along with such capable executives as Jerry O ' Shea, Mathew Whitfield, Frank Ryan and Joseph Mascovich, Breen raised the engineering students to a peak in activity this year. Below the graduates somewhat are the Sub-Senior engineers. These men are taking a more complete, yet less rigid schedule than the four year class. Al Wolff, giant football star, is one of the high ranking students in the upperclass division of engineering, while Steve Graham ' s im- portant position as Stage Manager for the University ' s dramatic production demand- ed much of his time and labor. The suc- cess of his crew in the Passion Play stands out as a testimony not only to his execu- tive ability but to the spirit of the whole Engineering College as well. Junior students have been no less inter- ested in the society ' s activities. Leading members of the class include William Box, Frank Booth, John Sylva, Ernie Cambou, George Arata and Roger Dieudonne, all of whom have stood out in sports or other lines of extra-curricular work. Sophomore and freshmen members of the College are hard pressed their first two years as the curriculum taxes their ability to assimilate the difficult courses. Having once passed that stage, they stand a good chance to complete the course success- fully. Class leaders in these divisions might include Ken Friedenbach, Andy Stolarz, Wilbur Morton, Gus Olivier, Ber- nard Bannan, Ed McFadden, Louis Tres- cony and Keith Canella. « y L +i First Row: Arata, Bates, Booth, Box, Bressani, Cambou.

THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Thirty- nine i in u; i, i; i ( Page Forty THE REDWOOD • 1939 L 1 With the coming of Dean Edwin J. Owens to the Santa Clara College of Law in 1933, the College has steadily grown in size and prestige. Working on the principles of a relatively small enrollment, a proportion- ately large faculty, strict entrance require- ments, and even stricter scholastic require- ments, the College was recognized last term by the American Bar Association. This year saw it reach full maturity with the completion of the new Law Building— Bergin Hall. This building, located in a secluded corner of the campus, contains a complete Law unit — Law Library, classrooms, faculty of- fices, and Moot Court — bringing, with the special furnishings, the students into an atmosphere congenial for the hours of study they must spend. Law students, as a rule, do not have much time for extra-curricular work. Santa Clara ' s men are no exceptions, though they do engage in the annual " Coolidge Competition, " a mock trial before regular California judges, and also participate in the activities of the " Woolsack, " honorary organization for students of the Junior and Senior years.

Fortunate indeed is the organization which has efficient leadership. This factor, perhaps more than any other, explains the remarkable efficiency of the United States ' military force, for the Army is justly famed as developer of leaders. Santa Clara ' s three-year-old Reserve Offi- cers Training Corps has not been an ex- ception to this rule. Heading its destinies is Major Ernest T. Barco of the United States Field Artillery. Possessor of an A.B. and an LL.B. degree, as well as having graduated from the Field Artillery School and seen service in the World War, Major Barco is in an excellent position to train men for reserve commissions. Further guidance is provided by two other commissioned officers of the Field Artillery, Captain Henry E. Sanderson and Captain Russell G. Duff. They have charge of the first and second year men in the unit, and the task of moulding an inexperienced group of men into a well-trained cadet corps has been ably performed by their diligence. Page Forty-four THE REDWOOD • 1939 U hrW " ££ ' J 2Z ' TACTICS Already representing an investment of several hundred thousand dollars worth of equipment furnished by the government, the R.O.T.C. field — better known now by its newly given of ficial tiU e _ tgnjori_FielgL —is being constantly improved. A larger g roup of R.O.T.C. students staffed by a more ample set of cadet officers have in- stituted activities unknown during Santa Clara ' s first two years of military science. Such field activities, technically known as " R.S.O.P. " , were possible this year on a larger scale than before. Setting up an observation post for the commanding offi- cer and his detail, selecting a concealed gun position, and establishing telephone communication between them over a con- siderable distance and with dispatch has been most fundamental training. An R.S.O.P. is being planned on the rifle range some 15 miles from Santa Clara for the corps area inspector. In the chosen site, mountains, valleys, forests, streams, and other terrain characteristics form an, ideal set-up for a theatre of war. A new concrete dugout was added to the equipment at Stanton Field this year. It is a model training ground for the cadet officers. Here are placed four model can- non, developed by the Army scarcely a year ago. Here also are the Battery Com- mander ' s instruments for the use of the student. Observed by his officer and by a spy-eyed corps compatriot who search the eye-level target area with their binoculars to observe the slightest error in his pro- cedure, the student rapidly learns to issue commands " up ten — on number two open five — battery right, five three hundred " in orthodox fashion. Not infrequently direct hits send the targets spinning when an especially accurate series of commands is issued. The indoor pistol range, where Santo Clara ' s pistol team competes in matches with other college units — by letter — was also changed. Formerly in the basement of the " Ship " it is now at Stanton Field where " Commence Firing " is the order of the day for team members. • " _! • ■A fcifc ' " i ■ ' -JBL ' ' . " :•■■ MW- • . ; IPS?

Held on President ' s Day, May 3rd, the above scenes show Santa Clara ' s crack motor- ized unit going through their paces. Important part of Santa Clara ' s R.O. T.C. is the participation in a number of parades during the fall and spring semesters. At least five additional hours per term are reguired for satisfactory completion of the basic and advance courses. Santa Clara ' s sole fall parade is usually held in conjunction with the local com- munity ' s celebration of Armistice Day. Pur- suant to past custom, the staff selected the outstanding battery to participate in the ceremonies. Choice is made as a result of competitive ratings for each battery in their weekly drills. Points are awarded for lead- ership, military bearing, military drill, appearance and attendance. With the advent of spring, the entire mili- tary department assumes an even stricter attitude. Weekly practice parades with the entire battalion assembled are held on [Stant on Field as a preparation for the cli- matic reviews on President ' s Day and on the occasion of the 9th Corps Area Com- mander ' s visit. The " Excellent " rating which the unit has earned during the last two years is ample evidence of the serious- ness and organization that is present dur- ing these important days.

STUDENT iwnwm Those among the students who are in- vested with executive powers are usually little remembered after the expiration of their term of office. But the members of the Student Congress for the past year will not soon be forgotten for the work they have accomplished. Students who attended the University dur- ing the school year of 1938-1939 will recall with pleasure the series of campus dances that this executive board of the Associated Students of the University of Santa Clara sponsored and arranged with the Catholic women ' s colleges of the Bay area. But an even more tangible remembrance of their work will be available to future generations of Santa Clarans. Through the activity of President John O ' Hara and a board consisting of Edward Nelson, Wil- liam McDonough, Norman Bayley, Lester Bricca and Arthur Meagher, an intention of several years standing was realized in the drawing up and adoption of a new student government constitution, a revision of the 1933 document. In writing this new governmental consti- tution the representatives of the various in- terests of the student body who make up the Student Congress defined and clarified the rights and privileges of the body. In addition to this, the constitution provides for several new committees, chief of which is the Social Committee, which was headed by Richard Campodonico this year. It is in charge of all social functions of the Uni- versity. The Student Congress was composed of the officers of the Associated Students: John O ' Hara, President; Richard Campo- donico, Vice-President; Lester Bricca, Secre- tary; Raymond McCarthy, Treasurer, and Alvord Wolff, Sergeant-at-Arms; the repre- sentative and presidents of each of the classes; the delegates of campus organiza- tions, the head yell leader and the editor of The Santa Clara.

Hard times are in store for Santa Clara ' s students of business administration; not the hard times of sinking industrials and rails, index numbers of decreasing stature, and downward trends, but rather the hard times of rising standards of student work in this already able department of the Uni- versity. However, radical change is not to be desired in the organization which unites all students in the Business Administration and acquaints its members with the prac- tical or field aspects of modern finance, commerce and industry. Informative voca- tional talks by prominent business men, inspection of the Bay region ' s leading firms and financial management of various student body functions are some of the means taken to accomplish this end. At- tending of the Convention of National Cost Accountants at the San Francisco ' s World Fair was a field day in the spring semester. Here the principles and operations of mod- ern accounting procedure were demon- strated to association members by experts. The " B.A.A.

The an- nual dance after the Stanford game was one of the most successful informal dances of the year. Its usual spring dance date was turned over to the " Redwood " as a financial aid to the publication. Observers and critics may rightly presume to " guess " that the continued success of the Business Administration Association was due as much to capable direction as to its interested members. Richard Lautze, the President, along with Fred Eyrond, Vice-President; Frank Hagan, Secretary; Edward Kelly, Treasurer, and Fred Ball, Sergeant-at-Arms, were the motivating force behind the busy program of th-9 B.A.A.

PlilNNHIM SOCIETIES Should a Santa Clara student be master of the intricacies of the slide rule and the transit we can surmise that he is a member of the Engineering Society. Should he wear a small circular pin on his lapel, carry- great loads of books and appear only at rare intervals our surmisal is a certainty. More properly speaking, the Engineering Society, one of the most active and power- ful bodies on the campus, is composed of the Associated Society of Electrical Engi- neers, the Associated Society of Mechani- cal Engineers, and the Associated Society of Civil Engineers. Admittance to Santa Clara ' s Engineering Society is guite nat- urally restricted to those who are enrolled in the school of Engineering. The regular functions of the organization, supplemented by a number of special services to the student body, were carried out with great vigor and success. The fre- quent meetings of the group featured talks by men prominent in the engineering field. Especially noteworthy was the work of the Engineering Society in conjunction with the seventh production of Santa Clara ' s Passion Play. Under the leadership of Stephen Graham, the technical effects and staging of this dramatic undertaking were handled with facility and effectiveness. Paramount among the outside activities of the Engineering Society was the World ' s Fair Excursion of the entire organization to Treasure Island. Among the engineering students the prev- alent opinion was that student administra- tors, President James Breen, Vice-President Jerry O ' Shea, Treasurer Jon Papez, Secre- tary George Arata, Sergeant-at-Arms Franklin Gomes, and Librarian Kenneth Friedenbach were responsible for this greatest year of the Engineering Society. The cooperation of Mathew Whitfield, Jerry O ' Shea and Joseph Mascovich, division presidents, aided Breen greatly. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Fifty-three THE REDWOOD... CARLIN TREAT Editor ARTHUR MEAGHER Executive Editor KENNETH LEAKE Sports Editor JOHN WALSH Business Manager JOHN DOHERTY Managing Editor The Redwood is an investment which in- creases in value from year to year, yet the undergraduate, busily engaged in sports and studies and friendships, often fails to realize that memories of them in a year- book will mean a great deal to him in later life when " college days " are far behind. This is what this year ' s Redwood staff under the able leadership of Editor Carlin Treat and his assistant, Arthur Meagher, have attempted to do. Constantly at work, they have selected what will be most in- teresting: photographs of all students and their instructors, and especially those of the graduating class; snapshots of the characteristic activities and traditions on the Mission campus; a complete chronicle of a great year in sports; and sections de- voted to classes, organizations and the biggest event of the school year, the 1939 Passion Play. A seemingly lethargic student body at the start of the financial drive of Business Man- ager John Walsh was finally roused into action by the real possibility of not having an annual, and the publication became an actuality under Treat and his capable assistants, Arthur Meagher, Francis San- guinetti, John Doherty, Kenneth Leake, Alan Williams, Robert Shorrock and Oscar Odegaard. Rev. J. P. O ' Connell, S.J. was Moderator of the publication. Page Fifty-four THE REDWOOD • 1939 THE SANTA CLARA . . . F NORMAN BAYLEY Editor ROGER DIEUDONNE Managing Editor THOMAS DAVIS News Editor CARLIN TREAT Sports Editor MANUEL FELCIANO Feature Editor Taking up where they left off last spring, the editors of The Santa Clara continued their process of " modernizing " the weekly- paper according to the best principles of today ' s journalism. So successful has this policy been that the newspaper once again has risen to a high place among national collegiate weeklies. More adeguate systems of campus cover- age have been devised, new and attrac- tive head faces have been substituted, and several other technical improvements launched under the direction of Editor-in- Chief Norman Bayley and Moderator Rev. George Lucy, S.J. The " Collegiate Digest, " a national college rotogravure section, has also been included in the issues. During football season and basketball, a six-pago edition was published featuring a special alumni section as well. Besides the editors pictured above, much credit should be given to several " men behind the scenes " who labored long and faithfully that the issues might make the deadline — namely, Edward Hurlbutt, Don Driscoll, Al Williams, Sam Leask, Edward Sullivan, Donald Engstrom and James Tupy. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Fifty-fife FIRST THE BUM . . . E. FRANCIS SANGUINETTI Editor ALAN WILLIAMS Executive Board richard Mcdonald Executive Board ARTHUR MEAGHER Managing Editor Many a small University would hesitate to accept the editorship of a publication that would entail a great amount of time and effort, especially if extra-curricular activ- ities crowded their school year. But not at Santa Clara where a group of willing and talented students immediately volunteered to shoulder the responsibility of editing the famed anthology of Cali- fornia collegiate verse, " First The Blade, " when the opportunity was presented them. With Rev. Edward Shipsey, S.J., head of Santa Clara ' s English department, assist- ing, an editorial board under Francis San- guinetti, guickly set about soliciting verse contributions, prize awards, and selecting capable judges. Out of a thousand entries, seventy were chosen for publication by the staff. Early in May the book appeared, reveal- ing the excellent make-up work of Arthur Meagher and definitely proving that the literary capabilities of a school are not necessarily proportionate to its size. Page Fifty-six THE REDWOOD • 1939 THE OWL E. FRANCIS SANGUINETTI Editor ARTHUR MEAGHER Managing Editor ALAN WILLIAMS Executive Board JOSEPH TOBIN Business Manager Divorced in 1938 from its parent publica- tion, The Santa Clara, the one-time literary supplement of the weekly newspaper, better known as The Owl, has winged its way to new heights in originality and reader appeal during the past school year. Under the skilled direction of Editor Fran- cis Sanguinetti and Managing Editor Arthur Meagher, Santa Clara ' s oldest pub- lication continued its refreshing change in make-up which it inaugurated last spring. Nor was the editorial staff content to hew to the lines of old in the detail of subject matter. A Fall and Spring bo ok review section merited the unanimous approval of its constant readers, while the special Pas- sion Play edition was replete with authori- tative and interesting comments on the current production, as well as accurate background description. Moderator for The Owl was Edward Ship- sey, S.J., who has been the ultimate stabil- izing influence behind the maintenance of a high standard of literary excellence. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Fifty-seven MANUEL FELCIANO President J. FENTON McKENNA Director ()U Named for Santa Clara ' s famous alumnus of the Class of ' 69, the Clay M. Greene Players of the University of Santa Clara seek to perpetuate the remarkable dra- matic tradition of the Mission School. This heritage, though embodied chiefly in the traditional plays and the Dramatic Art Contest, is not confined to these. During its four years of existence, with many of this year ' s graduating class as charter mem- bers, the Players presented a larger num- ber and greater variety of plays than has ever been done before at Santa Clara. This achievement is due as much to the efforts of the Director, J. Fenton McKenna, and the cooperation of the Moderator, Rev. John P. O ' Connell, S.J., as it is to the mem- bers themselves. Although the Passion Play dominated the activities of the society this year, it was by no means the only function. The weekly radio programs over station KQW, San Jose, were continued as usual, and occa- sional social entertainments for various service clubs and organizations were given. This " good will " mission was cli- maxed by the work of the Passion Play Entertainment and Speaker ' s Bureaus dur- ing March, which, though not composed entirely of Players, operated through their organization and were largely made up of them. The first semester was occupied to a great extent by organization work, the staging of the annual Dramatic Art Contest, which was won by the 1936-37 victor, James Doherty, and a very successful private reading performance of " Julius Caesar " . The second semester, of course, was de- voted to the Passion Play, and all activities of the organization were suspended in order that every effort could be directed towards that crowning point of Santa Clara ' s dramatic year. The Executive Committee, convening once a week, was composed of Manuel Fel- ciano, President; Hugh Smith, Vice-Presi- dent; E. Francis Sanguinetti, Recording Secretary; Milton Piuma, Corresponding Secretary; Leon Williams, Treasurer; Nor- man Bayley, Personnel; Dion Holm, Radio; James Doherty, and Dr. McKenna. s Page Fifty- eight THE REDWOOD • 1939 Ifc, r 1 «t{ O ( " % -- ». -qr- s c «4 4 ™ 2 « r 1 First Row: Adams, Bayley, Cardwell, Chargin, Cummins.

Principal function of the Senior Sodality is to perpetuate on the campus the tradi- tional Santa Clara devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to encourage a more freguent reception of the Sacraments. In carrying out their spiritual objective, the Sodalists, under the guidance of Rev. Hugh C. Donovan, S.J., have joined with the junior organization once a month for Mass and Holy Communion on a day when Chapel attendance was not reguired. In a like manner, the group has been instru- mental in reviving the custom of holding a special Sodality Benediction during each school term. Membership in the Senior Sodality is open to all Sophomores, luniors and Seniors. Indicative of the importance which it occupies in school affairs is the stipulation that all Sanctuary members must be en- rolled Sodalists. Over seventy-five upper- class men have joined the cult of the Queen of Heaven. At the group meetings, discussions of some phases of Our Mother ' s life are ordinarily held under the leadership of the Modera- tor and Prefect. Owing to the crowded school year, these highly instructive talks were regretfully dispensed with for the cur- rent term. Leaders of the senior organization have been Prefect William McDonough, Vice- Prefect Alan William and Counsellors Robert Wagner and Louis Di Ricco. Wil- liam Box performed the duties of Secretary.

Go to members of the Senior Sanctuary Society, those who would know something about the hardships of early morning ris- ings; and by the members of the Senior Sanctuary Society an example is set that all, inguisitive or not, could do well to imi- tate. Oldest organization on the campus, this group of faithful and self-sacrificing stu- dents is justly called the " Honor Society " of Santa Clara. Annually only those are admitted from the ranks of the Freshman altar society who are Sodalists in good standing, students of above average scho- lastic rating and residents at the Univer- sity. On its rolls are inscribed the names of the outstanding men of Santa Clara, now and of the past. Also known as the Saint John Berchman ' s Sanctuary Society, the chief activity and privilege of the organization is to assist the priest in the celebration of Holy Mass, Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and other of his sacred offices. This year, under the moderatorship of Rev. J. C. Pohley, S.J., the senior acolytes inaug- urated the custom of donning cassock and surplice while serving at the side altars, as well as on the main altar. The members were rewarded with a ban- guet at the conclusion of the first semester, while the last week in April saw the an- nual Sanctuary Society picnic and cruise on San Francisco Bay. Prefect of the society for the second se- mester was Richard Lautze, with John Thorn as Secretary, and John Walsh as Censor. William Bruce held the post of Prefect during the fall semester, while Richard Jobst was Secretary and James Breen acted as Censor.

Established in 1930 as preparatory organi- zations for the upper groups, the Fresh- man Sodality and Sanctuary Society have increased greatly in membership and prominence during the last ten years. Like the Senior Sodality, the Freshman membership strives to preserve the pious devotion to Our Lady by attending the monthly special Communion with the upper group. Their moderator, Father Don- avon, therefore, has sought to interest first year Catholic men in the opportunities which the Sodality offers for religious ex- pression as well as for preparation to enroll in the Senior organization. Prefect of the Freshman Sodality was Leo Murphy. He was assisted by the follow- ing officers: William O ' Brien, Vice-Prefect; John Sexton and William Ebert, Counsel- lors, and Henry Vila, Secretary. Founded for the express purpose of teach- ing incoming students the correct ritual for assisting the priest at Mass, the junior society seeks to successfully prepare its members for an invitation into the select Senior Sanctuary Society. Page Sixty-two THE REDWOOD • 1939 THE WOOLSACK . . . First Row: Mager, Green, Doll. Second Row: Morton, Cronin, Artz. Quietly remaining in the background dur- ing the first three-guarters of the school year, the lawyers make their phoenix-like appearance before the student body dur- ing the spring presentation of the annual Coolidge Competition. This event is the chief function of The Woolsack, an honor- ary society composed of those who have maintained an honor rating for a year in the College of Law. Deriving its name from the symbolism of the cushion of wool, covered with red cloth, upon which the leading English judge— the Lord Chancellor — sat during court ses- sions, The Woolsack offers an incentive to those students striving to make the study of law their profession. In conducting the Coolidge Competition, which was estab- lished in 1934 in honor of Dean Emeritus Clarence C. Coolidge, The Woolsack aims to further stimulate among its members the desire for legal research and to develop their powers of legal analysis. The Court, consisting of three prominent jurists, bases its decision on the structure of briefs, submitted in advance by the counsels, skill in argumentation and presentation, and ability to satisfactorily answer the guestions propounded by the Court. Winners of the sixth annual Coolidge Com- petition this spring were Richard Morton and George Doll, who defeated George Artz and Herman Mager. Francis Cronin served as Clerk of Court. Dean Edwin J. Owens was in charge of the classic event. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Sixty-three The Senate • • • LITERARY First Row: Adams, Andre, Anello, Bruce, Cronin. Second Row: Depaoli, las.

Top ranking debating society on the Mis- sion campus is the Philalethic Senate, upper house of Santa Clara ' s unique Lit- erary Congress. Established in 1857 to afford its members an opportunity for practical training in debating and other forms of public speaking, the Senate orig- inally met in joint session with the lower House of Philhistorians. Since the War, however, this union has been disrupted. Except for the annual Ryland Debate, held in honor of the Hon- orable Caius Ryland, ' 97, and the Foch Debate with St. Mary ' s, the two forensic groups convene separately. In the thirty- sixth renewal of the Ryland competition, Senators Hugh Smith, John Walsh and Wil- liam McDonough ably represented the upper house, while Senator Francis San- guinetti was adjudged the best speaker in the Literary Congress ' s success in the Foch contest and awarded a plaque by the French consul. Strict requirements are set up for new can- didates. Membership is limited to Junior and Senior debaters who have completed a successful year in the lower house. As a further check, the Senate stipulates that all prospective entrants deliver satisfactory initiation speeches on a topic of their own choice. Rev. James F. Corbett, S.J., Moderator of the organization, revived many of the cus- toms of procedure of past days. Debate subjects were proposed in the form of a bill and following pro and con argumenta- tion on the resolution the Senators decided on its merit. Page Sixty-four THE REDWOOD • 1939 minim . . .

The House of Philhistorians, the junior member of the Literary Congress, is the testing ground from which emerge Santa Clara ' s outstanding orators and debaters. The instrument by which these men de- velop are the weekly debates in which every member of the House participates several times during the year. In addition to these intra-house debates a number of intercollegiate encounters and exhibition debates were held. There is actual com- petition in the weekly contests, but it is sub- ordinated to the more important ends of developing poise, style, and facility of speech in the declaimers. The topics discussed by the Philhistorians ranged from matters of politics, art, and ed- ucation to questions of athletics and hob- bies. Under the experienced leadership of Rev. Edward J. Boland, S.J., the meetings of the students were marked by the en- couraging sign of heated argumentation among the prospective Senators. The House closed its active schedule with a representative showing in the Ryland De- bate. Opposing the Philalethic Senate in the classic event were Richard Dwan, Don- ald Engstrom, and Thomas Healy. Officers for the current scholastic year were Lloyd Alaga, Vice-Speaker; Donald Engstrom, Secretary; Ted Burns, Treasurer, and Dion Holm, Sergeant-at-Arms.

Initiates into Santa Clara ' s extra-curricular program are ordinarily given their bap- tism of fire as public speakers at the fall meetings of the Stephen M. White Debat- ing Society. Called " Stephen M. White " in honor of one of Santa Clara ' s graduates who achieved great prominence as a lawyer and a United States Senator, this organization had an enrollment of over thirty active members of the Freshman class. The stim- ulating leadership of Rev. Raymond F. Copeland, S.J., aided many inexperienced men to develop into competent debaters. In addition to the weekly intra-society de- bates, several intercollegiate contests were held: three each with the University of California and Stanford University, two each with the University of San Francisco, St. Mary ' s College, and San Jose State Col- lege, and one with the College of Pacific. Current headline topics of national or in- ternational concern were available in abundance during the hectic months of the close of 1938 and the beginning of 1939. Although all the members improved greatly in constructive argumentation, Roger Garety, Edward Bean, Gordon Klein and Paul Hayes proved themselves especially skilled rebuttalists, as well. In order to develop the individual speak- ers, chairmanship of each meeting has been given to a different man. The only regular officer of the Society during the past year has been Donald Santure, Re- cording Secretary.

Scientific Societies . . . Eastward on the Santa Clara campus every afternoon trudge a group of college men in the direction of the Science Build- ing. It is from their numbers that the mem- bers of the two science societies, the Galtes Chemistry Society and the Mendel Biological Society, are drawn. It is from the pages of scientific history that the names of these organizations have been taken. Rev. Paul Galtes, S.J., made a series of famous experiments in radio phenomena during the early part of the century of such value that even the re- nowned Marconi made a special trip to Santa Clara to inspect his work. Gregor Johann Mendel, an Augustinian monk of the 19th century, inaugurated develop- ments in the field of biology that laid the foundation for the great advancements made more recently in that science. Aims of these groups have been similar. Besides fostering a greater interest and en- thusiasm in the various aspects of their respective sciences, the societies desire to keep their members abreast of current de- velopments in the world of scientific af- fairs, whether it be in chemistry or biology. Toward attainment of their objectives, lec- tures by recognized authorities and numer- ous field trips have been promoted. All these functions have been carried out in addition to the regular " get-togethers " at First Row: Porter, Bo, Stickel, Estelle, Trembley. Second Row: Dr. Deck, Thelen, Youngman, Stringari, Lambert. which points of mutual interest have been discussed. Officers of the Galtes Chemistry Society were: Paul Thelen, President; Michael Bo, Vice-President; lohn Estelle, Secretary, and Lawrence Stringari, Treasurer. Presiding over the Mendel Biological Society were: Raymond Nemecek, President; Charles Bardin, Vice-President, and Adolph Zap- pelli, Secretary-Treasurer. Both clubs climaxed their annual activities with banguets. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Sixty-seven First Row: Scmguinetti, Bo, Anello, Campodonico.

The Nobili Club The Italian Club, renamed the Nobili Club in deference to the memory of the re- nowned Italian Jesuit, Father Nobili, first president of the University, is dedicated to the purpose of arousing among Santa Clara students an interest in the culture and customs of Italy. Moderator of the Nobili Club is Professor Umberto Olivieri, LL.D., who strongly ad- vocates a diligent study among the mem- bers of Italian language, tradition, and arts. In keeping with their aims of fostering Italian culture, the Nobili Club held fre- quent dinners featuring speakers on cul- tural and political subjects of Latin signifi- cance. The social activity of the club was brought to a successful close with a bar- becue this spring in the Los Gatos hills. Together with the Catala Club, the Nobili Club sponsored a lecture by the distin- guished scholar, Professor Altrocchi, head of the department of romance languages at the University of California, upon " Castles in Italy, " a discussion of the history and artistic value of the great castles of Italy. The officers who guided the destinies of Santa Clara ' s only active language club through its most successful year since its inception were Lester Bricca, President; Joseph Dusina, Vice-President, and Milton Piuma, Secretary. Page Sixty-eight THE REDWOOD • 1939 Day Scholars Association Harold Harvey, Eugene Fretz and Fred Eyrond, Arthur Milhaupt, Thomas Davis. Although they constitute the largest single group on the campus, the day scholars have always been somewhat set apart from the resident students because of the handicap of being absent from the campus when many of the extra-curricular events take place. The Day Scholars ' Association was formed with the prime purpose of furthering the participation of day scholars in student functions, and this year the Association was continually active in progressing towards that goal. The most striking evidence of its success is found in the fact that there is scarcely a member of the Association who does not participate in at least one other campus organization or activity. Membership of non-resident students in the House of Phil- historians, the Philalethic Senate, and their entry into the Owl Oratorical Contest are examples of the growing interest in cam- pus affairs. Whole-hearted support by the individuals of the group was responsible, in great part, for the success of the newly organized socials with prominent Catholic women ' s colleges and the world-famed Passion Play. Association officers for the 1938-1939 school year were Robert Ayers, President; Fred Eyrond, Vice-President; Thomas Davis, Secretary; Justin Hannon, Treasurer; Wil- liam Egense, Sergeant-at-Arms, and Arthur Milhaupt, Student Congress Repre- sentative. Eyrond succeeded Ayers, who became a resident student, at the beginning of the spring semester. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Sixty-nine mH n Xp.

Although disappointed inasmuch as they were unable to present the orchestral back- ground for the Passion Play, the small but enthusiastic Santa Clara orchestra ably carried out its custom of playing at all the formal dramatic and forensic competitions in the University Auditorium during the past school year. A great deal of credit for the success and effectiveness of the group belongs to Pro- fessor Clemens Van Perre, Director of Music at Santa Clara. Professor Van Perre did remarkable work in gathering together and conducting this representative group of musicians. The addition of popular arrangements of modern airs as well as school songs to their regular repertoire made the Univer- sity band a unique college musical organi- zation on the Pacific Coast. Assisted by the president of the group, Bernard Hanlon, Professor Van Perre ' s novel, rhythmic adap- tations provided stirring moments for the spectators during the intervals at both football and basketball games. A swing quartette proved one of the features of their musical offerings at football contests and pre-game rallies. Appearance of the band has not been lim- ited to campus or school functions. Follow- ing their superb showings at athletic events, the band has been besieged by numerous outside groups and several spe- cial programs were held off the Mission School as a result. Page Seventy THE REDWOOD • 1939 The Choir It can be scarcely yet be called a tradition at Santa Clara, for a school ' s traditions are necessarily practices which endure through the successive graduations of many classes of her sons, and the student choir is now only in its third year. Still, it is a practice we might well wish to become an enduring one. During this the third year since the choir was organized with the encouragement of Rev. Hugh C. Donovan, S.J., a more expe- rienced and closer-knit group has added reverent vocal praise to the prayers of the students at Holy Mass. The repertoire of the student singers has been extended to include hymns taken from the Catholic countries of Europe and revivals of earlier Latin psalms. Guiding the progress of the Chapel Chor- isters have been E. Francis Sanguinetti, director-organist, and Edward Sullivan, junior organist. Innovations have been student direction of the choir for the important Mass of the Holy Ghost, held in early weeks of autumn, and the Mass for deceased faculty and alumni, which is celebrated later in the fall, and the Reguiem Mass sung on the occa- sion of the death of Pius XL The pulse of organ music with the gradual crescendo of bass, of baritone, and of tenor voices richly blending to help us lift our minds and hearts in praise to God is a sound we hope will very soon become an established tradition at Santa Clara.

The Block SC Society, if nothing else, could boast of having the most unigue member- ship reguirements and initiation. While other self-styled and loftier organizations demand that the candidate for entrance be a dramatist, a pre-medical student, or a debater, the Block SC Society demands only that its members be the possessors of a sweater. The fact that this sweater must be the award for any major athletic en- deavor only adds to the unigueness of the reguirement. This body of block-earners finds itself without any definite procedure or line of duty to follow. The mere fact that it has undefinable duties only makes its tasks more bountiful. This follows from the prem- ise that where all other campus societies have certain standard functions and per- formances, the Block SC Society must eventually carry what remaining or extra responsibilities there may be. An outstand- ing example of their handling of a depart- ment which was not under the direct authorship of any other society was in the case where a committee of sweater- wearers was appointe d to undertake and solve the traffic problem presented by the Passion Play. This they did with excellent results. Unfortunately due to the time absorbed by the Passion Play during a comparatively short second semester, the blockmen were unable to revive their great entertainment offering, the Block SC show. An athletic carnival, however, was sponsored by the club in the first semester. Tom Gilbert, star football player, was the president of the group and to him goes the plaudits of all the campus for the capable manner in which he directed the activities of the organization during the past year. Page Seventy-two THE REDWOOD • 1939 RULV COMMITTEE . . . Yell Leaders Tobin, Hayes, and Jones. Owen, Williams, Bricca, Campodonico, Folger, Felciano. Paradoxical as it may seem, winning ath- letic squads usually make the work of both the Yell Leaders and Rally Committee more difficult. Prolonged winning streaks by a University ' s teams often seem to herald a period of disinterest on the part of their adherents. Santa Clara ' s great football record and their equally outstanding showing on the basketball court made both the cheer lead- ers and the rally committeemen work over- time this year in an effort to keep student enthusiasm at a constant high pitch. This they did in a manner which won the approval of athletes and spectators as well as the student body. Headed by Jack Hayes, the trio of yell leaders set an excellent example through- out the season. No matter what the event —varsity or freshman — one or more of the staff was on hand to guide the rooters in their vocal efforts. Along with his capable assistants, Joe Tobin and Roy Jones, Hayes inaugurated a new practice in the local cheering section — namely, that of allowing rival yell leaders to direct the rooters dur- ing the half-time interval. The innovation caused much favorable comment from out- side sources as well as creating a sports- man-like attitude among the students. The great record of the varsity and freshman football teams as well as the basketball aggregations offers ample evidence of their ability. The all-important Rally Committee pro- vided the spark that sent the Broncos off to a great athletic year. By the successful staging of several important rallies, the group intensified the students ' interest in a winning team and prevented a feeling of indifference from spreading over the campus. By organizing the seating ar- rangements, providing megaphones and half-time entertainment, they more than made up for the apathy of students at cheering. Highspot of their efforts was the St. Mary ' s rally in the " Ship " and the bon- fire afterwards. " Dooley " Bertolani ' s effi- cient work was the major factor in the success of the Committee, while Leon Wil- liams, Robert " Tex " Owen, Lester Bricca, Manuel Felciano, Roy Folger and Harry McGowan deserve much credit for their valuable work.

Well might the majority of student organi- zations at Santa Clara imitate the construc- tive program of action that the Catala Club has followed during the past year. Founded less than ten years ago, this group has achieved an enviable position among the University ' s outstanding so- cieties. Appropriately named after the personifica- tion of the Mission ' s traditional sanctity, Venerable Magin de Catala, the present presen t feminine auxiliary represents in reality the perpetuation of the part early Spanish women played in the welfare of the Mission Santa Clara. With the move for his beatification already begun, the Catala Club has reverently supported his cause. Membership is not limited merely to the mothers or relations of Santa Clara stu- dents, but embraces the wives of the teachers and alumni as well as any other ladies who are actively interested in the Mission and School. Aside from their sup- port of all student functions, the club has a singular aim which is expressed in their by-laws — namely, " to contribute to the cul- tural welfare of the community. " To assist in carrying out this objective, the leader of the Catala Club, Mrs. Edmund C. Flynn, with the assistance of the Univer- sity ' s English chairman, Rev. Edward Shipsey, S.J., has continued with even greater success the policy of former years in presenting each Thursday morning throughout the scholastic year a series of informative and stimulating lectures by prominent faculty members.

Club executives and members devoted a great deal of their time during the second semester to cooperating with the Univer- sity publicity department in the immense task of successfully staging Santa Clara ' s seventh annual Passion Play. Many of the ladies were fortunate in finding per- sons to act as sponsors for the production, while other devoted their time to spreading information of the drama by talks and in- formal conversation. The ultimate success of the play bespoke well for their industry. Noteworthy, too, was the cooperation by the club in assisting at the recently inaug- urated socials held by the students. Under Mrs. Flynn ' s supervision, several ladies prepared the refreshments for the three din- ner dances held in fall at the University, ities during the summer months but re- sumes them during the fall. Assisting Mrs. Flynn in carrying out the aims of the Catala Club have been a num- ber of capable administrative officers who have given of their time unselfishly for the benefit of the organization: Mrs. Sara de Quevedo, Mrs. Guy U. Smith, Mrs. Herman F. Budde, Mrs. Mary G. McCormick, Mrs. Lauren L. LaHue and Mrs. Walter G. Fitz- gerald. The annual June garden party climaxed the group ' s activities for the school term.

GREENI Author The students of the University of Santa Clara once again presented with pride the " Passion Play of Santa Clara. " Six times previously audiences have thrilled before this dramatic version of the life and death of the Christus since the initial pro- duction was given almost two score years ago in 1901. That year marked the Golden Anniver- sary of the founding of the University of Santa Clara: fifty years had passed since the priests of the Society of Jesus had taken over the site of the Mission Santa Clara for the purpose of establishing an institu- tion of higher learning. President of the University at the turn of the centur ywas Reverend Robert E. Kenna, S.J., and it is to him that much of the credit for the inception of the Passion Play must be given. Anxious to make of the Golden Jubilee a memorable event, Father Kenna wrote to his former class- mate, Clay M. Greene, and reguested him to write a religious drama suitable to the occasion. Clay M. Greene — poet, actor, and play- wright graduated from Santa Clara in ' 69 and tasted freely of the fruits of success. Many plays, poems and stories from his gifted pen attracted much favorable atten- tion and at one time he held three plays running simultaneously on Broadway. When Greene received Father Kenna ' s reguest to write a jubilee play, he saw an opportunity to realize a dream that has long been in his thoughts. So it was, through his genius as a playwright, that the " Passion Play of Santa Clara " was written. So great a success was the original showing that the play has become Santa Clara ' s greatest tradition. Again in 1903 and in 1907; once again in 1923, 1938 and then in 1933, the " Passion Play of Santa Clara " has been given intelligent and rev- erential interpretation by the university students. Page Seventy-eight THE REDWOOD • 1939 Its Direction anil Mounting DR. FENTON J. McKENNA Director The success of this year ' s production rested most heavily on the shoulders of two men, Dr. J. Fenton McKenna and Mr. Waldemar Johansen. Santa Clara ' s director ' s duties were diffi- cult enough considering the guiding of the drama itself, but to this was added the necessity of selecting costumes, supervis- ing the taking of publicity pictures and in- numerable other details which are so im- portant to the success of the Passion Play. It is at once evident that Dr. McKenna de- serves a great amount of praise for his un- selfish efforts. In Mr. Waldemar Johansen, Santa Clara possessed a noted stage designer. Al- though he is a member of the faculty at Stanford University, Mr. Johansen kindly consented to design the sets for the Passion Play, and more than this, be Technical Di- rector of the whole production. In his sets, Mr. Johansen ' s avowed purpose was to strengthen the appeal of the spoken word and not weaken their force by crowding the stage with too many details as is often done in the purely realistic settings. To this MR. WALDEMAR JOHANSEN Technical Advisor end each scene was designed in the utmost simplicity so that the lack of detail might emphasize the true meaning of the inci- dent and convey to the audience the underlying emotion and feeling. The adroit use of ramps and elevations added immeasurably to the effectiveness of the drama, the whole aiding the actors in pro- jecting their characterizations and facilitat- ing interesting and striking stage pictures. Mention, too, of Mr. Frank M. Sanders, who so brilliantly executed Mr. Johansen ' s de- signs and gave unstintingly of his time and labor to make this Passion Play the most striking, as well as beautiful, production of its kind, should be given. Behind the scenes, but nevertheless guite active was the Moderator, Rev. J. P. O ' Connell, S.J., who worked untiringly to aid the princi- pals. It is to these men that the University owes a deep debt of gratitude, not only because of their labors but because of their unfail- ing good humor and splendid spirit of co- operation. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Seventy-nine MILTON PIUMA Production Manager STEVE GRAHAM Stage Manager Its Production There are two parts to the great Santa Clara tradition known as the Passion Play. The part behind the scenes first, and the part in front of the scenes second, named in the order in which credi t should be given them. Although it is obvious every unit that worked for the good of the Passion Play is important and necessary, still credit can be distributed a little more specifically. Actors are vitally important to a play and the work they do determines the guality of the show. But it is easy to do good work when the artist knows that people will im- mediately recognize it, talk about it and praise it. It is not so easy, on the other hand to put time and energy into something that affords no reward but the satisfaction of knowing that a job has been well done. Active publicity work on the Passion Play under Anthony Hamman, Alumni Execu- tive-Secretary began at the start of the sec- ond semester, but the production of the drama commenced far sooner. Under the student supervision of Milton Piuma, the production needs of the play were drafted long in advance of the actual selection of gualified students to fulfill these essential positions. Similarly, the stage crew under Steve Graham had to be satisfactorily lined up before definite plans could be laid for the staging of the drama. Following the opening of the second semester at Santa Clara, the plans became a reality. Wholehearted cooperation by the engineering department made the techni- cal phases of the production of the play easy to solve. Upon George Unsworth fell the heavy burden of controlling the light- ing of the drama, while Hugh Smith took a leading part in directing switchboard oper- ations backstage. Meanwhile, Milton Piuma ' s call for actual production work had been answered by a number of will- ing workers. Dave Kern, Harry Zell, Joseph Schweitzer and Walter Cummins all con- tributed leading parts to making the re- hearsals and production a success. Truly the finished product, the 1939 Passion Play, symbolized a harmony between two working units, and the strength of both. Page Eighty THE REDWOOD • 1939 Behind The Scenes . . . Those who saw the scenes behind the scenes at the seventh Santa Clara Passion Play were privileged to view many an in- teresting, a s well as many a ludicrous sight. Typical it seems of the back stage drama that occurred during the ten day run was the vision of several bewhiskered and venerable citizens of Jerusalem in their unaccustomed garb industriously shooting a game of snooker in the School Co-op, while they waited for their scene to be called. In the memory of almost any Santa Clara alumni there are remembrances of unusual and novel sights that the walls of Seifert Gym have embraced. But, what with Roman soldiers vying each other at ping- pong or a couple of Bethelehem ' s sheph- erds irreverently shooting baskets, it was evident that the cast of the Passion Play had indeed taken over the gymnasium for their own. Immediately back-stage the action was continual and exciting. When the play was not in actual progress, the stage crew was either frantically engaged in shifting scen- ery or making preparations for the next showing. The efficiency of all the " fly- men " and " gripmen " was a thing of sur- prising smoothness and cooperation as they grew even more acquainted with their tasks. Even the audiences at the performances glimpsed something of the spirit and color that was behind the scenes. Before the opening curtain, the white-bearded Wise Man sat on the back steps of the " Ship " with an arm thrown companionably about a High Priest ' s shoulders. Or, perhaps one of Pilate ' bodyguards, helmet askew, re- clined on the lawn deep in the neglected study of philosophy. But, climax of all, each day ' s activities as the fully costumed thespians, their make-up vivid and start- ling trudged en masse over from the " Ship " to the gym; then the reality of the drama lost even the least portion of its signifi- cance. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Eighty-one Before The Divided into a Prologue and Seven Scenes, the " Passion Play of Santa Clara " affords a powerful and intense version of the life of Christ. In the prologue we are trans- ported to the plains of Bethlehem on the night of the Nativity. Suddenly into the midst of the shepherds sleeping amidst peace and tranguillity comes a shepherd lad, Zoribel by name, who awakens them and prophesies the coming of the Messiah. Their doubts as to the truth of his story are soon dispelled by the appearance of the Angel of the Lord, who explains the significance of the brilliant new star newly arisen in the East. Ammon and Dathian, emissaries from Herod the Great, along with three Kings from the East, bear preci- ous gifts for the new-born King and inguire of the shepherds of his whereabouts. A period of thirty-three years has elapsed as Scene I begins in the Council Chamber of the chief High Priest of Jerusalem, Caia- phas. The city has been thrown in turmoil over the threatened triumphal entry into the city of a certain Nazarene, who, it is said, will proclaim himself King of the Jews. Immediately after this follows the highlight of the Nazarene ' s dramatic entry and the enthusiasm of the populace. Alarmed, the priests convene to overthrow him. Dathian, now advisor of Caiaphas, secures Judas, one of the Master apostles, presently discontented with his life, and brings him before the High Council. But fearing the conseguences of an act of treason, he denounces thern and flees. The Mount of Olives, overlooking Jeru- salem, comprises the setting for Scenes II and III. Shortly before the hour of the Last Supper, ten Apostles are assembled, await- ing the coming of Matthew and Judas. Matthew enters and relates how he acci- dentally overheard Caiaphas tempt Judas and how Judas finally perceived his weak- ness and fled. At this moment Judas enters; but he denies any intention of betraying the Master and convinces the other Apos- tles that he will remain faithful. At the start for the place of the Last Supper, Judas is again bribed by Dathian and Caiaphas to THE REDWOOD • 1939 Scenes betray his Leader with thirty pieces of sil- ver. The Fourth Scene is set in the throne room of Herod Antipas, Tetrach of Galilee. He, worried at the incursion of his power by the Romans, has been informed by the Roman Governor, Pilate that final disposi- tion of the Nazarene ' s case will be left to him. Upon the joint plea of Matthew and his recently converted father, Jechonais, Herod promises to do what he can to save him. Scene V reveals the courtyard adjoining Pilate ' s Judgment Hall. Here the clamoring mob, urged on by the Merchants and Caiaphas, demand that Pilate pass judg- ment. Twice he declares His innocence, but when they select Barabbas to be freed in place of the just Prisoner, he wavers and delivers the Victim to be crucified, after washing his hands of the blood of the Man. The terrible reality of the Way of the Cross is the main theme of the Sixth Scene. We see the roadway to Calvary, which, itself can be seen far in the distance. The proces- sion moves on as the great Cross appears in shadow as it is borne waveringly on the weary shoulders of the Victim. It falls, elicit- ing savage cries of joy, but somehow, it slowly rises and goes forward on its tragic journey. The last scene is laid in the Temple of Jeru- salem before the Holy of Holies. It is the third hour of the crucifixion. Strange nat- ural phenomena has caused the populace to flee to the Temple. Caiaphas, alarmed, orders their arrest, but before he can do it, Pilate rushes in and begs for protection, realizing the enormity of his crime. He is ignored, however, and Caiaphas orders the soldiers to massacre the people. But before he can act, a tremendous sound fills the Temple, the Holy of Holies is seen to sway as its columns waver, and then it crashes to the ground. The priests flee ter- ror-stricken, along with the mob. Pilate falls to his knees as lightning reveals the C oss, silhouetted in the distance. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Eighty-three JAMES A. DOHERTY ended his dramatic career at the University with his moving portrayal of the elderly patriarch, Jechonias, a rich Publican of Jerusalem wh o comes to a knowledge and belief in the Christ through his son, the Apostle Matthew. Winner of the Dramatic Art Contest in 1937 and again this year, he is the second person to achieve this honor in the history of the school. Climaxing his four years of dra- matic work, FRANCIS SANGUI- NETTI, played Judas in the Pas- sion Play. Outstanding in campus activities, winner of the Dramatic Art Contest of 1938, his excellent characterization of one of the main roles in the Play served as a fitting climax to his career. The Passion Play of Santa Clara meant more to HUGH SMITH than just the opportunity to play the role of Herod. It was the realiza- tion of the dream of a new and efficient switchboard for the Uni- versity Theatre. Designed and constructed by himself with the aid and cooperation of the College of Engineering, the board is of the very latest type. Smith has many favorable reviews for his outstanding performances in Clay M. Greene productions and his excellent showing in the Pas- sion Play was indicative of his ability. Page Eighty-four MANUEL FELCIANO ' S fine per- formance in past Clay M. Greene productions were crowned by his realistic portrayal of the weak and vacillating Roman governor, Pontius Pilate.

Three victories over Stanford, two over St. Mary ' s, three over U. S. F., and a flock of intersectional wins! Thus, Santa Clara ' s magnificent football team has completed the three greatest years in Mission grid history. Under the gentlemanly general, " Buck " Shaw, the Broncos have waged a vigorous three sea- son campaign that has brought nation- wide respect, glory and fame to a school which once " fielded a pretty fair club on occasion. " A brilliant 16-game winning streak featured the three-year pull from athletic obscurity to national recognition, for in the progress of that remarkable record, the Broncos trampled, crushed and cooly drubbed the best in the land. Shadows of the immortal Rockne were cast across Ryan Field as the Broncos boomed into a spotlight they were never expected to reach. Students no longer asked, " Who won? " They wanted to know " What was the score? " During the first two years, which have been recorded with gusto in the newspa- pers, the Broncos lost one game. Despite the fact that two of the eight games on the 1938 schedule were lost, that season, in one respect, is the crowning point of the " Santa Clara Success " campaign.

" SAM " DUNNE The papers gave the scores but Santa Clara fans alone knew that the figures were a mere paragraph of the 1938 story. A football sguad, grid weary from two suc- cessful but too lengthy previous seasons, laboring under a tension that accompanies continual triumph, pointed at by every team it played, and, in general, damned if it didn ' t and met with " What of it? " if it did, showed a courage worth all the sugar in Louisiana and all the oranges in Florida. Battling furiously against an inevitable, football-tired staleness that would overtake them sooner or later, the Broncos fought just as fiercely when they were caught. Ominous prophecies shadowed the turf as the season progressed and the Broncos fought desperately the tremendous trifles which were piling rapidly. Six consecutive victories, each shakier than the one preceding it, were registered be- fore the first defeat — at the hands of St. Mary ' s. Paradoxically, that game was the apex of the season, for Santa Clarans fought harder than they had at any time in three years. They brushed by disap- pointment after disappointment, although sensing with the fans that they were des- tined to be denied that afternoon. The Detroit loss was an anti-climax, a further experiment with Santa Clara courage. It was truly a successful season because it showed that there is more to a great foot- ball team than victories. — K.L. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page Ninety-one THE BRONCOS . . . CAPTAIN ALVORD " AL " WOLFF Right Tackle To select a team leader from twelve stand- out senior gridmen would indeed have been a difficult task for any coach. Wisely enough, therefore, Coach Shaw designated one or two men to assume the duties of captain during the past season. Every senior had the honor of captaincy or co-captaincy bestowed upon him once during the Bronco ' s nine scheduled games for 1938. At the close of the season the players, as is their custom, chose Alvord " Al " Wolff, almost unanimous choice for Ail-American tackle last fall, as the player who proved to be the most inspirational factor fo r the sguad. Wolff, for three years the Coast ' s leading tackle, rose to great heights in the early part of his junior career and his spec- tacular linework in the second Sugar Bowl game at New Orleans opened the eyes of the Nation ' s top sports writers. A brilliant student and a great sportsman, Al cer- tainly deserved the distinction conferred upon him by those best gualified to judge — his teammates. Along with Jim Coughlan, star end, Wolff ended up his season in a blaze of glory by proving to be the outstanding defensive tackle on the field in the annual Shrine East-West classic at San Francisco on New Year ' s Day. Coughlan, after a brilliant start as a sophomore, was considered through as a junior when he suffered a severe knee injury. However, he came back to score the winning touchdown in the second New Orleans game, and after a splendid performance in the regular 1938 schedule, he amazed onlookers at Kezar New Year ' s by making spectacular touchdown catches of two passes to give the West a 14 to victory over the sup- posedly superior East forces. Along with Russ Clarke, George Locke, Jerry Ginney and Bruno Pellegrini, Cough- lan and Wolff participated in the K. C. Charity game at San Francisco late in Jan- uary. There Bruno Pellegrini proved to the Bay football fans that he was among the best by out-shining first stringer Davey O ' Brien.

The seniors were Jim Smith, fullback star of the 1938 Sugar Bowl game, and Bill STRINGARI BILL BRUCE Bruce, hard-luck end. The junior was Larry Stringari of Colorado. His trick shoulder injury persuaded Coach " Buck " Shaw to keep the husky flankman out of a suit for the rest of his collegiate years, tak- ing no chances of incurring serious compli- cations. r - v •$ )- t First Row: Pellegrini, Barlow, W.

The Mission forces began their triumphal parade in the middle of the open period with Tom Gilbert scoring on a seven-yard run around left end to put the finishing touch to a 55-yard downfield march. A 47-yard runback of an Indian pass by Jim Johnson set the stage for the second tally, Joe Hoyt charging over left tackle from nine yards out to make the touchdown.

To call the Santa Clara victory decisive is what one onlooker termed " a masterpiece of understatement " . Two additional Bronco touchdowns were called back; a 15-yard plunge over right tackle by Dick Clark and a spectacular 85-yard kickoff return by Jim Barlow. Stanford, except for Pete Fay ' s flashy running, was completely outclassed, offensively and defensively. Santa Clara, using three complete units, appeared to be in mid-season form. — A.W.

Thirty thousand fans saw the game in Kezar Stadium. A sudden, 52-yard drive in the closing min- utes of the third guarter, climaxed by a six-yard " sneak " executed by Quarterback Ray McCarthy, enabled the Broncos to reg- ister the seven points constituting the mar- gin of victory. The fourth guarter was filled with des- perate Aggie aerial thrusts, engineered chiefly by Halback Dick Todd, " the pride of the southwestern conference, " who Page Ninety-six THE REDWOOD • 1939 Kir Jy M irk 4 Coughlan ' s block enables Pellegrini to elude Aggie defender, while Anahu looks on TEXAS A.

The closest the Aggies came to shattering the Santa Clara string of victories was in a second guarter march that reached the nine-yard line before bogging. Confused in their offensive blocking as- signments by the shifting and unorthodox Aggie defenses and surprised by the strong running attack of " just another passing team " , the Broncos never became the smooth, powerful unit they were the previous week. Jim Barlow and Dick Clark, who played in his second game as a regular halfback, led the Santa Clara attack, and Johnny Schiechl established himself as the best center on the Pacific Coast. — A.O.

Striking with lightning-like thrusts, the Shawmen took to the air against the closely bunched Arizona defense, and three touchdowns were their first guarter harvest.

Precedents were scattered all over the field as the Broncos and Razorbacks battled one of the most spectacular games ever played in San Francisco. The Santa Clara goal line was crossed for the first time since the opening game of the 1937 season — a record of 12 straight games. Santa Clara was scored upon on the ground for the first time in the three- year history of Shaw-coached teams. " The passingest team in the nation " was decisively outpassed by the Broncos, and Page One Hundred THE REDWOOD • 1939 6-ARUmS BOB DeBENEDICTIS Guard the Razorback aerial attack was boomer- anged into two Santa Clara touchdowns by a perfect defense. The game was filled with long runs and spectacular drives. Johnny Schiechl, Bronco center, received a lateral pass from Bill Anahu and raced 34 yards to a touch- down in the first guarter. But a determined Arkansas team, led by such brilliant backs as Kay Eakin and Ray Atwood, immedi- ately executed a 75-yard march, culminat- ing in a 14-yard drive by Atwood into the end zone. Jack Roche returned an Eakin pass 42 yards across the goal line in the last min- ute of the second period, and Ray Mc- Carthy set up the final Bronco touchdown with a similar interception. A pass, Tom Gilbert to Dick Clark, from the 14-yard marker and a two-yard plunge by Clark, gave Santa Clara her last tally. — A.O.

The pass was ruled incomplete on a guestionable decision. The actual winning touchdown was scored on a freak play in the second quarter. Kicking from his own 35, Johnny Pingel, star Spartan halfback who was the thorn in the side of the Broncos all day, was smothered by giant Nick Stubler, and Walt Smith seized the bounding pigskin to run unmolested to a touchdown. Old depend- able Tom Gilbert split the uprights to add the extra point which was the margin of victory. — A.O.

Although they could get nowhere offen- sively in the first half, the Dons stopped every drive the Broncos executed, even to denying a touchdown when the ball rested on their one-foot line with three downs to punch it over.

The small U.S.F. sguad tired in the last period, but they were able to keep their goal line uncrossed for the remainder of the game. The great kicking of Al Braga was instrumental in holding the Broncos at bay. Jim Johnson, sophomore halfback, who had played little in earlier games, emerged as the individual star for Santa Clara. Entering the game after Pellegrini was in- jured, Johnson sparked the team to the win- ning touchdown with accurate passes and powerful off-tackle ball carrying. — A.O.

From its season performances, Santa Clara had shaped up as the stronger team but the aftermath of the 17th renewal of the " Little Big Game " demonstrated that the Gael outfit was, at least on that afternoon, the better team. It was a tough and thrilling contest from its opening minutes and the 65,000 specta- tors seated in San Francisco ' s Kezar Stad- ium were treated to a typical brand of Bronco-Gael warfare.

From that point, the Gael fullback, Smith, plunged it over to decide the game. Four times in the final quarter, as the Bronco adherents roared encouragement, the Missionite eleven penetrated within scoring distance, once reaching the Gael four-yard line. But victory was not to be theirs that afternoon. Jim Coughlan, Johnny Schiechl and Russ Clarke were particularly brilliant in the Bronco forward wall. However, their efforts were unavailing as the Gaels refused to accept anything but victory. It was a sad day for Santa Clara and a great and de- serving triumph for the men from the hills of Moraga. — A. W.

A one-point Santa Clara loss seemed a far- fetched possibility as the opening half came to an end. Already the Red and White machine had manufactured one score on a 33-yard pass from Pellegrini to McCarthy and the consistent manner in which the Santa Clara yardage total was swelling belied the danger of the missed conversion.

In the final four minutes of the con- test the Santa Clara eleven drove 63 yards to the Detroit five-yard stripe. There, with seconds left in the game, Gilbert ' s at- tempted field goal was blocked by an avalanche of charging Detroiters. The decision went to Detroit by the differ- ence of a single point, and how it hap- pened as it did Santa Clara supporters are yet wondering. — A.W.

Starting the year a completely unknown quantity as all freshmen teams do, Coach Leonard Casanova ' s yearling football squad surprised itself, its coaches and the whole school by becoming, in a few weeks, the greatest first-year aggregation in the history of Santa Clara. The freshmen roared through a five-game schedule un- defeated, untie dand unscored-upon. Not only was the class of ' 42 group the fin- est in the school ' s history, but it was ac- claimed by sports authorities, after the 44 to rout of St. Marys, as probably the greatest freshman eleven the bay area has ever seen. Coach Leonard Casanova, assisted by Louis Farasyn, 1937 captain, took a group of candidates, fresh from prep turfs, and molded them into a smooth versatile team which, from the opening 13 to victory over San Mateo Junior College to the com- plete triumph over St. Mary ' s, astounded every football fan who saw it in action. Equipped with only a half-dozen basic run- ning plays, the Colts took the field and completely walloped a heavier, more ex- perienced San Mateo eleven in the first game. It immediately became apparent that a lanky, blonde boy from Oakland, Kenny Casanega, was a great passer. He Page One Hundred Ten THE REDWOOD • 1939 whipped two perfect tosses to Ends Dan Willis and Chuck Schoepf early in the con- test. Two other particularly able backs ap- peared later in the game as Paul Sopel and Frank Petersen alternated in carrying the ball on a 60-yard march for the second touchdown. Modesto Junior College was the next vic- tim in the victory march. This game was played on a rain-soaked field in Modesto under the arcs, and the adverse conditions prevented at least two more touchdowns from being added to the 13 to score. Casa- nega justified his admirers ' boasts by pass- ing brilliantly, but it was another rugged halfback, Gil McDermid, who tossed to Willis for the first touchdown. Sopel scampered 80 yards through broken field for the other score. Rubert Thornton, George Poppin, guards, and Nate Howard, end, were outstanding in the forward wall. Now rolling along with the momentum of an avalanche, the frosh had little difficulty throttling the U. S. F. yearlings, 19 to 0, under the arcs of Kezar Stadium. The Don frosh were the strongest Santa Clara met all year, but the hard-charging line smothered Muchacho offensive thrusts, even one starting from the one-foot line be- cause of a penalty. The uncanny Casa- nega arm again set up touchdowns with completed passes. Frank Zmak and Bob " Peanuts " Smith, two giant tackles, led the defensive forces of the Colts with smash- ing play. Marin Junior College, heralded as a superior jaysee team, fell easy prey to the rampaging Colts. Four teams were used by Coach Casanova to run-up an easy 25 to win. Ray Lutz, Hawaiian halfback, spun and twisted 60 yards down the side- lines for the most spectacular play of the game. While the freshmen looked better than average in their first four contests, their reputation as an all-time great team was made in Seals Stadium in San Francisco by the manner in which 44 points were rolled up against a reputedly good St. Marys ' freshman club. Just five minutes of play elapsed before Casanega broke free for a 5-yard touchdown gallop, and, from then on, it was a Santa Clara field day. Petersen stole individual honors with three goal line trips; Bill Singen, fullback, garnered one; Ends Ken Dewing and How- ard received scoring passes, and Casa- nega cut loose for a 50-yard dash a minute before the gun ended the carnage. — A.O.

CAPTAIN ED NELSON COACH GEORGE A. BARSI Coach George Barsi ' s basketball team, 1938-39 edition, enjoyed the most success- ful season since the genial mentor as- sumed the reins of Santa Clara ' s tradition- packed sport four years ago. Besides win- ning the coveted Northern California Inter- collegiate Conference championship, the Broncos swept to victories over the Stan- ford Indians and the California Bears, runners-up in the Pacific Coast Conference race. Out of 20 games played the Santa Clara cagers won 15, three of the losses resulting from a strenuous five-game tour of the Mid- dle West. St. Mary ' s and California, in the second meeting between the two schools, proved to be the only coast teams who held wins over the Barsimen. Santa Clara, in addition to routing confer- ence opposition, walloped such guintets as the Olympic Club, California Aggies (win- ners of the Far-Western Conference) and the Athens Club. With a sguad composed of ten veterans and a galaxy of spectacular sophomores, George Barsi employed a breath-taking fast break which minimized the height and size disadvantage incurred by the Broncos in almost every game. Page One Hundred Fourteen THE REDWOOD • 1939 AID THE SQUAD . . . The leading Santa Clara scorer was Bruce Hale, sophomore forward, who ran up a total of 179 points for the season. Hale, a spindle-] egged speed merchant, lost high- point conference honors by one solitary marker to Tony Franusich of U. S. F., who tallied 95 points. Next in seasonal scoring was Ed Nelson with 146 points; he was fol- lowed by Bob Feerick, another sophomore, whose 133 points were made from the guard position. Hale and Nelson made all of the All-Con- ference selections of the bay area papers, and Feerick and Ralph " Toddy " Giannini, whose injured arm handicapped him throughout the season, were honored also. Marty Passaglia, swift running mate of the artistic Hale, was selected by the Univer- sity of Detroit for his outstanding play. With the close of the highly successful sea- son, all eyes are turned toward next year ' s prospects. Missing from the roster will be such standouts as Ed Nelson, center; Ed Shando, guard; Sammy Andersen, for- ward; the hard fighting Lautze twins, Bob and Dick, and Bob Ayers, guard. Despite the severe losses, the Barsi machine looms to be a mighty potent instrument in 1939-40 with a plentiful supply of experience, speed and several promising candidates from the freshmen. — P.C.

After playing and winning four " opening tests " on the coast, the Santa Clara sguad toured middle western cities with the fol- lowing results: Santa Clara 23 Detroit 25 Santa Clara 45 Hamline 33 Santa Clara 31 Marquette 33 Santa Clara 57 DePaul 51 Santa Clara 31 Loyola 33 Coach George Barsi, ten players and Manager Ray Nemecek boarded the Challenger December 23, traveling steadily until Christmas Day when they arrived in Denver. Here a workout was held at St. Regis College. Realizing that the players needed relaxation after several nights on the train, Coach Barsi encouraged the sguad to " frolic " in the snow. That night the Santa Clarans boarded the Denver Zephyr bound for Detroit. Train weary when arriving in Detroit, the Broncos hurried off to their hotel and climbed into regular beds for the first time since departing. The following day, Detroit University, hosts to the visitors, showed-off the city. First, it was Ford ' s Greenfield Village; then, a professional basketball game; finally, on the morning of the 28th, a sight seeing tour into Canada. The players found it interesting to know that one has to go south to get to Windsor, Canada, from Detroit. This warm hospitality was too much for the Broncos who appeared sluggish and stale losing to the Lions, 25 to 23. This was the sguad ' s first taste of Middle West basketball, and was the roughest mouthful of the trip. The half-time score, 8-8, indicates that the players were busy doing things other than ringing baskets. Marty Passaglia was high-point man for Santa Clara with six points; Bob Calihan of Detroit garnered ,11. Passaglia later was named on Detroit ' s all- opponent team. A rather disgruntled group of Broncos left the next day for St. Paul where a homecoming celebration awaited Coach Barsi. Upon entering Hamline University ' s gym, George came face to face with a huge banner which read, " Wel- come to George Barsi and His Broncos. " Santa Clara re- sponded by walloping Hamline, 45 to 33, as Joe Felipe scored 17 points. The team arrived in Milwaukee New Year ' s Eve, being scheduled to play highly touted Marguette the same night. Marguette was defending a two-year win streak on her own court. The Broncos were somewhat upset upon their arrival at the hotel before the game when they were unable to locate Page One Hundred Sixteen THE REDWOOD • 1939 THE MIDWEST . . . their luggage, frantically tracing down the taxi cab driver who had neglected to follow them. Greeted by an overflow crowd of 3500 people, Santa Clara took the floor against Marguette and the sensational Dave Quabis. Twice the Broncos threatened to pull away but, on both occasions, Quabis countered with two guick buckets from long range. In the meantime, Big Ed Nelson was running up an impres- sive point total in his own right. Not more than two points separated the two teams until the final two minutes when Quabis scored two guick baskets. Santa Clara made up one of the goals but the gun ended with the score against her, 33 to 31. Downhearted after their second two-point defeat, the Broncos were guests of Fr. E. J. Zeman, faculty advisor for the team, at a New Year ' s Eve party. Chicago welcomed the traveling Broncos the following day, and the players were surprised to learn that Detroit Univer- sity, through the person of Graduate Manager Mike Peters, had arranged for them to see a thrilling ice-hockey game. The next night Santa Clara met DePaul in a game marking the high-point of the trip. Playing before a packed throng of 6500, the victory made the Barsimen favorites with Chi- cago fans. Behind at half-time, Santa Clara overcame a 30 to 16 deficit after confusing DePaul with a switch to man- to-man defense all over the court. Bruce Hale, " Toddy " Giannini and Bob Feerick went on a one-handed shooting spree, compiling the amazing total of 41 points in the second half. Santa Clara met Loyola two nights later, and again the Broncos were victims of the " fatal two-points " . This time the final score was 33 to 31. Loyola, unbeaten in 1 1 games, was paced by two Ail-Americans, " Wibs " Kautz at guard and Novak, six-feet and nine inches of center. The Broncos counted on Big Ed Nelson to offset Novak ' s great height, and it was due chiefly to the fine backboard work of Nelson, who, against overwhelming odds, kept the score knotted at half- time at 18-all. Although never headed by more than four points, the Broncos were never in front. After the game, the sguad was rushed to the station where they once again boarded the train, this time bound for home. To the school, the trip proved that its basketball team was on a par with the best in the nation. To the players, and par- ticularly six seniors, the trip will always remain as one of the most pleasant experiences of their college careers.— The Lautzes. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page One Hundred Seventeen ST. MARY ' S SERIES . . . Although St. Mary ' s gave the Broncos their first Northern California Intercollegiate Conference defeat of 1939 and ended their undefeated record on the West Coast, Santa Clara ' s clever basketball team re- covered to win the second and third games of the traditional series and emerge victors over the Gaels for the second straight year. The first game, won by St. Mary ' s 37-33, was a triumph for the coaching skill of the Gael coach, Harlan Dykes. Santa Clara trailed from the opening whistle, and, after drawing-up even at 27- all, wilted before the relentles guarding of the Gaels. She lacked the smoothness and coordination of earlier games. Bruce Hale tied with Wood and Andrade for high-point honor at 12 apiece. Adequate revenge fell to the Broncos in the scond game of the series. Kept nearly even by the sensational shooting of " Scotty " McPhail in the first half, the Gaels were completely routed by an aroused Mis- sion quintet in the final period. A total of 17 points were rung up before a single Gael tally was made, and the Santa Clara second team finished the game, winning by a score of 48-35. This win made the Broncos all but mathematically certain to take their first league championship. Hale again led the scoring with 14 points. The third game of the series, played merely as a formality since Santa Clara had al- ready won the championship, was an easy Bronco win over a crippled St. Mary ' s team, 47-39. Hale went on a scoring spree in the first half and Bob Feerick took his turn in the second period, the two men aggregat- ing 31 points for the night ' s workout. — A.O.

Santa Clara gained sweet revenge for the defeats at the hands of San Jose State in 1938 by walloping the Spartans easily in two straight games to win the abbreviated series by scores of 59-27 and 40-34. The first game, played before a packed auditorium in San Jose, was a cautious, close game for the first half — Santa Clara led only 19-15 at the intermission — but the smooth Broncos took control as the second period opened and battered the bewildered Spartans with 1 1 straight points before they could ring up a free throw. In this game Bruce Hale established himself as the cleverest and deadliest basket tosser among California colleges. He played only a part of the game, yet rang up 19 points in sensational style. Marty Passaglia, running mate with Hale, executed the job of " feeder " to his high-scoring teammate to perfection. Webb Anderson, Spartan for- ward, led his teammates with 6 points. The second game of the series was less of a fiasco but the Santa Clara victory, 40-34, was none the less complete. Nearly 4000 spectators crowded San Jose ' s Civic Audi- torium to watch another chapter in the bit- terest athletic rivalry in the history of the two schools. Again, Santa Clara started slowly, leading only 19-18 at the half, and the Spartans hung on grimly until the final few minutes when the Broncs cut loose with a scoring spree which meant almost cer- tainly the Northern California Intercolleg- iate Conference championship. Tied at 28- all with six minutes to play, Santa Clara tallied on a tip-in by Nelson, a short shot by Hale and Feerick ' s 20-foot one-handed toss. Nelson flipped in another basket to clinch the game as San Jose closed with a belated rush. Nelson led the Bronco scorers with 12 points and Bendeich tallied 11 for State.— A.O.

Series A double win over the University of San Francisco ' s basketball squad helped the Santa Clara cagemen cinch their first NCIB title. Forgetting the dullness of their first meeting of the season, both teams com- bined to make the second contest one of the most thrilling tilts ever witnessed in San Francisco ' s Kezar Pavilion. In their conference opner, the Barsimen led from the start to defeat their traditional rival, 34 to 25, in a slow and drag game. For a few moments in the second half as the Don ' s Johnny Ignoffo dropped through five quick baskets, the Santa Clara chances for victory seemed endangered. But the Broncos moved away again and held their lead safely through the closing minutes. Marty Passaglia topped the Mission scor- ing with four field goals. After trailing the Dons for five minutes after the start of the second half, George Barsi ' s charges, with Ed Nelson pulling the game out of the fire, swept through the Hilltop- pers for the series win, 54 to 41. The Broncos held a slight 24 to 22 half-time lead, due mainly to the scoring efforts of Forward Bruce Hale. But in the last period Franusich, the Don ' s great forward, sank four long arching shots to run the score to 30 to 26 in the home team ' s favor. Hale, Feerick and Felipe then came right back to turn the tide again in the Bronco direc- tion, 38 to 34. At this point, Ed Nelson went on an amaz- ing scoring spree that netted him six con- secutive baskets. Sixteen points ahead, the Mission five coasted the rest of the game. Final scoring gave Nelson high honors with 16 points, with 15 digits credited to Hale. Bob Feerick accounted for 10 points and fed cleverly to his fellow players. — ■ A.W. Nelson tallies as Feerick watches Page One Hundred Twenty THE REDWOOD • 1939 I ' iiI. Stanford Series Twice the Bronco cagers did battle with the University of California quintet but only once did they come out ahead. The lone meeting with Everett Dean ' s Stanford five saw the swift Missionites winning out in a close contest. The initial encounter with the elongated Bears, which ended in a 31 to 28 Bronco victory, was a slow and boring tilt for thirty- six of its forty minutes. Only as the Bronco ' s last minute stall successfully protected their slim lead were the 3000 fans in San Jose ' s Civic Auditorium stirred out of their dreams. Hale was high scorer for the evening with nine points. Notwithstanding a 15 to 13 lead at half- time, the Santa Clara basketballers man- aged to drop their second contest with the Bears by a decisive 43 to 28 score. The towering Calif ornians solved the Bronco fast break soon after the second period commenced and with Ogilvie drop- ping through five baskets jumped guickly away to a 36 to 27 lead. From then on in it was all California as the Blue and Gold players completely controlled the back- board play and repeatedly broke up the Santa Clarans ' speedy offense. Ed Nelson led the scoring with ten points. In its only game with the Stanford team, a train-weary Barsi five, just returned from an Eastern invasion, edged out a 37 to 34 win before 3500 spectators in the Palo Alto gymnasium. Captaine Zonne of the Indians kept his team in the game by scoring 21 points, but his efforts could not stem an 8 to Bronco lead in the first five minutes nor the 22 to 18 half-time score. Hale, Giannini, and Nelson grabbed Santa Clara scoring honors with eleven, ten and nine digits respectively. — A.W. W-i- Forward Feerick unleashes his deadly hook shot against California.

Rather than relaxing against their some- what weaker opponents from the College of Pacific, the Santa Clara basketeers played their best brand of ball in both of their encounters with the Bengals to come out ahead in each instance by a comfort- able margin. In the first game played at Seifert Gym- nasium, the Bronco cagers, minus the serv- ices of first-stringers Feerick and Giannini, revealed a species of fast break and accu- rate shooting that game them an easy 55 to 37 victory. Pacific tallied only four field goals in the opening half and wound up that period trailing 13 to 25. The inspired shooting of the Bronco cagers safely maintained that lead during the second half, although the visitors managed to sink several long at- tempts. The clever passing of Sophomore Bruce Hale was, to a great extent, responsible for the overwhelming Bronco win. Time and time again, Hale fed the ball to his team- mates to set them up for close-in shots. Stocky Joe Felipe rang up 17 points with his accurate over-hand right shot to nab scoring honors, while Ed Nelson ' s tip-ins netted him 16. Hale, himself, succeeded in tallying 13. Traveling to Stockton to complete their series with the College of Pacific sguad, the Broncos repeated their initial triumph to win again by a substantial 45 to 33 margin. Once again the CO. P. five was unable to stop the brilliant shot-making and floor game of the Missionites, as Messrs. Gian- nini, Hale and Passaglia rang up a 21 to 10 lead at the half. Scoring practically at will on easy set-up shots sprung from a slow-breaking offense, Giannini dropped through nine field goals and two free throws for a high-scoring total of 20 points.— A.W.

But as the season rolled along, the Colts, under the watchful eyes of Coach George Barsi, improved by leaps and bounds to pull down the curtain on an outstanding season. This year saw a seemingly ordinary ball club emerge victorious over such appar- ently superior rivals as the freshman squads of California, University of San Francisco, St. Mary ' s and San Jose State as a result of the deadly shooting of Mangan and Punchochar and the aggressive work of Murphy and Matula, two of the most im- proved men on the squad. Dick Mangan, a small but highly versa- tile guard, led the frosh scorers with a total of 125 points for thirteen games. His superb ball handling and tea mleadership was the main factor in the Colts ' record of nine wins and four losses. Next in scoring was Lee Puncochar, who ran up 71 points by dint of uncanny marksmanship from far out. Murphy and Matula proved to be a great asset when the going became a little rough. Though not outstanding scorers, their remarkable ability to obtain the back- board rebounds aided the freshmen no little in their fast-break and defensive play. Others who showed well in their frequent appearance in the lineup were Ohio ' s lithe but capable forward prospect, Bob Robens, tall Bob Schairer, and Ed Hurlbutt. — P.C. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page One Hundred Twenty-three 3 4 $ f° IASEIUL THE COMH, THE CAPTAIN COACH JUSTIN FITZGERALD CAPTAIN LES BRICCA The man who wrote " There ' s nothing new under the sun " did not see the Santa Clara baseball team perform during the 1939 season. In one of the daffiest, looniest years on record, Coach Justin Fitzgerald ' s Bronco baseballers won two and lost 13 games to wind-up in the cellar of the California In- tercollegiate Baseball League. Santa Clara ' s " hot ' n ' cold " nine did every- thing from blowing 16-run leads to squeez- ing six runs across the plate in a last inning rally. Working with a minimum of mate- rial, " Fitz, " who is considered one of the finest college baseball coaches in the nation, tried in vain to keep the Broncos from doing the worst possible thing at the worst possible time. Few years in the Mission school ' s baseball history can chal- lenge some of the performances during the season just completed. Try as she might, Santa Clara could not escape the inevitable one or two bad innings. One minute, the Broncos clicked like champions; the next, they stole a march on the Brooklyn Dodgers. The close-cropped hair of the veteran mentor whitened with every pitch as he Page One Hundred Twenty-six THE REDWOOD • 1939 illl THE TOM . • • saw his charges lose a 22 to 19 game to California after leading in the sixth inning, 16 to — a feat causing considerable com- ment, not to mention raising of eyebrows, from the lowliest hot-stove league to the mightiest major circles. In each game the Broncos showed flurries of high-class baseball. In two of the three games they lost to Stanford, they were leading in the final innings. Two of the U. S. C. games were nip and tuck affairs, and one of those was virtually conceded to the Fitzmen by Troy. The only series in which Santa Clara was truly outclassed was the three-game round with the high- powered St. Mary ' s Gaels. At the conclusion of the season, Wally Carroll, sophomore outfielder, left school to join the Los Angeles Pacific Coast League team, being signed by the Chicago Cubs.

THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page One Hundred Twenty-seven ' ' ■ Southern Trip . . . The southern invasion of the Bronco baseballers gave them their first taste of league victory. Four games were played under the warm Southern California sunshine, but it was not until almost dusk of the last day of their visit to the city of the Angels that Coach Justin Fitzgerald ' s charges emerged victorious. Supplying the opposition in the league opener for the con- ference champion U. S. C. Trojans, the Broncos gave way in the tenth inning of a close ball game by a score of 9 to 8. Slapping the offerings of Bricca, Ed Nelson, Gene McFadden and Russ Lebeck to all corners of the park, the U. S. C. nine ran roughshod over Santa Clara by a score of 17 to 8 in the second tilt. Again it was wildness on the part of Mission hurlers and errors afield which did more damage than the Trojans themselves.

Bruins on the new West- wood diamond, Santa Clara split a two-game series, drop- ping the opener, 3 to 1 , and taking the second game, 6 to 3. Big Ed Nelson twirled seven-hit baseball in the first contest but Bronco bats were stilled by jack Whitlow, Bruin mounds- man, who allowed a scant five blows. Led by Frank Battaglia at the plate and Russ Lebeck on the pitching slab, Santa Clara coasted to its first league victory by the decisive score of 6 to 2. Lebeck kept nine hits well scattered and fanned seven U. C. L. A. batsmen while Battaglia accounted for a walk, a single and a timely triple. In the two games the southern teams played on Ryan Field, 68 runs were scored by the three teams involved. The Bron- cos lost to U. S. C, 18 to 17, and nipped U. C. L. A., 17 to 16, in a fitting fiasco to close the season. Santa Clara ' s base- ballers terminated their season by scoring six runs in the last half of the ninth to annex their second league victory and snatch the series from the Bruins. — L. B. W KM ' Bl. FRANK BATTAGLIA JOHNNY HANNA Page One Hundred Twenty-eight PAUL CLAUDON GENE McFADDEN BILL FILIPPI THE REDWOOD • 1939 St. Mary ' s Series St. Mary ' s had little difficulty drubbing the Broncos in the three-game series by respec- tive scores of 8 to 3, 8 toO and 11 to 1. The opening game was played in Seals ' Stadium, San Francisco. Johnny Chan- gala opened the game with a double and scored on John Hanna ' s single. The brief Bronco jubilation was forgotten soon after- ward when the Gaels walloped the curves of Pitcher Russ Lebeck for consecutive basehits and a lead that spelled victory all the way for the men from Moraga. The hitting of Changala and Battaglia was the bright light in the Bronco efforts. Each of them smacked out two base hits. The Broncos, despite the 8 to 3 score, looked im- pressive in the game and showed poten- tialities of playing a classy brand of ball. The next Gael encounter found the Santa Clarans facing the greatest pitching they faced all season when " Bud " Merrill, Gael righthander, blazed fast balls and cracked curves by the Fitzmen who garnered a lone bingle — Wally Carroll ' s poke through the infield in the sixth inning. While Merrill was toying with the Broncos, Gene McFad- den was hit eight times for as many runs. The lanky sophomore hurled good ball despite the inconsistent support of his fielders. Still gunning for their second victory of the season, Coach Fitzgerald ' s charges again met the league leading Gaels in their last game of the series. Again, the superb pitching of the St. Mary ' s staff, this time represented by Emmet O ' Neil, throttled Bronco bats. O ' Neil scattered nine Santa Clara hits, allowing one run while the Mo- ragamen scored 1 1 times. Wally Carroll, leading Bronco hitter for the season stole batting honors for the day with a double and two singles. — P.C.

THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page One Hundred Twenty-nine Stanford Series The unsuccessful Bronco baseball team submitted to a clean sweep by Stanford in the 1939 renewal of the annual series, al- though Santa Clara turned in one of its best games of the season in losing to the Indians. The first game, the California Intercolleg- iate Baseball Association opener for the Broncos, was an easy victory for Stanford, misplays in the field contributing as much as Stanford hits to the 8-4 score. Santa Clara outhit the Indians, 12-10, but they were never sufficiently bunched to pro- duce many runs. Stanford, on the other hand, took advantage of loose pitching by Gene McFadden, who started the game, and Les Bricca for enough runs to win. The second contest was a pitcher ' s battle from start to finish with Les Bricca opposing Ouentin Thompson, Card star. Thompson allowed the Broncos only three hits and one run, but Bricca matched his lethal hurling all the way, until a walk, a sacri- fice hit, and a single in the last half of the eighth inning enabled Livermore, Card first baseman, to score the winning run. The Santa Clara run was scored by Clau- don who tripled to center field in the sixth inning and was sacrified home by Case. Stanford tied the score in the seventh and went ahead to win in the eighth. Bricca hurled an effective game, allowing five hits, five walks, and striking out five men. The last game of the series, played late in the season, went to Stanford by a score of 18 to 3. The Indian batters had little diffi- culty in ge tting to three Bronco pitchers, Lebeck, the starter, McFadden and Echen- ique, for 17 hits and 18 runs, while Santa Clara batters could do nothing with the offerings of Al Lazzarone. — A.O. 1 ' « WRfP JOHN CHANGALA Catcher-Shortstop JACK ROCHE Shortstop Roche retires Lazzarone, Stanford hurler, on easy put-out. Page One Hundred Thirty THE REDWOOD • 1939 California Series What was, without a doubt, the wildest and the most unique game ever played on Ryan Field was witnessed by some 600 fans attending the series opener between Santa Clara and California. The final score was 22 to 19 in favor of the visitors. Russ Lebeck started on the mound for the Broncos and pitched sensational ball in the first five innings, allowing only one weak single. While Lebeck was holding the Cal hitters at bay, the locals were pounding out 14 base hits and 16 runs. The hitting of the McGowan brothers, Harry and Clay, and of Jack Roche featured the onslaught. In the sixth frame, Lebeck, after a long inning at bat for his teammates, returned to the mound with a cold arm, and, before the inning was over the Bears had pushed over six tallies. Coming back in the eighth inning, California got to four Santa Clara pitchers for 13 runs, giving her a three-run lead. Coach Justin Fitzgerald ' s boys knotted the score in their half of the eighth with a walk and three base hits. But again the pitch- ing staff of the hapless Broncos weakened, and what was at one time, an easy victory turned out to be an unbelievable defeat. Seeking revenge after their historical downfall, the Broncos met the Bears again, this time i n Berkeley. The hard-hitting Clint Evans ' men hammered Santa Clara pitch- ers in the opening innings, and, before the spectators were comfortably settled in their seats, California had built up a command- ing lead that was never threatened. The score was 6 to 4 although the Broncos were outhit by a scant one blow. With the series already decided, the defeat- weary Broncos journeyed to the California diamond in a vain effort to annex the re- maining game. Captain Lester Bricca took over the hurling chores, but he was wild, and big Ed Nelson went into the fracas with a six-run deficit staring him in the face. For the remainder of the game, Nelson pitched shutout ball in addition to slashing out a triple, driving in three runs in the sixth. Despite this rally, Santa Clara lost 6 to 5. ■ ' w 2 £ i — ' - — L — • iCfe DALE CASE Third Base HARRY McGOWAN Center Field IHIMnHKnBQB B Catcher Harry McGowan juggles ball in crucial seventh inning against California.

Climaxing one of Santa Clara ' s most suc- cessful freshman seasons, Coach Len Casa- nova ' s yearling horsehiders played a representative twenty-two game schedule, winning nineteen, losing two and tying one. Included in the list of Freshman victories were a pair of wins over St. Mary ' s highly- touted freshman nine, 4 to and 10 to 6. " Lefty " Collins, sensational southpaw, pitched both games, receiving superlative support from his mates at bat and afield. Next most important conguest was an 1 1 to 5 triumph over the barnstorming Pasa- dena J. C. at Ryan Field. Long homers by Graham and Newby gave the frosh the impetus that carried them on to an easy victory. Santa Clara ' s yearlings also vanguished such teams as San Mateo J. C, San Jose State frosh, St. Ignatius, Polytechnic, Low- ell, Balboa and San Jose high schools. The locals dropped a close tilt to Commerce and another thriller to San Jose High. Adding greatly to the strength of the Kenna nine was the fine pitching of Collins, Cahalan, and Franzoia, three lefthanders. Collins, brilliant prep star, lived up to his advance notices in compiling seven triumphs in eight starts. Cahalan ' s remark- able improvement was a factor that aided the Colts tremendously in their great sea- son, while Franzoia was always a steady performer. The able receiving of Bill Royer proved to be a great help for the Mission mound staff, while Dooly and Farrell formed an excel- lent keystone combination. Ned Sheehan ' s fine fielding and hard slugging at third base has already ticketed him for a varsity berth next year. Bill Newby and Gus Paglia were the leading outfielders. However, Graham and Carlguist were invaluable when it came to timely hitting. Other re- serves who showed well were Matula, Pedroni and Bean.

In brief, he must handle all the routine and difficult assign- ments handed him by the various coaching staffs and players. Throughout the locker- rooms cries of " Hey, manager, where ' s my suit; where ' s my jersey; get my helmet; how do you expect us to hit without bats? " Santa Clara is no exception to the rule. Manager Harry Zell guided the football managers with all the finesse and vitality of a foresighted business executive. Ray Nemecek withstood the whims and protests of a championship basketball team, while Kenneth Leake carried bats and chased the foul balls for the consistently losing baseball team. Under the direction of Minor Sports Leader George Barsi, Robert Scholk successfully managed the largest intramural schedule ever attempted at the Mission institution. Despite the drudgery that is connected with the position, the top managers of var- sity sports are amply repaid by the con- tacts they make, the award of a block sweater, and the coveted honor of being included as a member of the team when the varsity travels far from its home grounds. Harry Zell, for example, accom- panied the gridders in their trips to Michi- gan, Arizona and Sacramento. Ray Ne- mecek packed the basketball and the suits at Christmas time and boarded a train for the Midwest as Santa Clara ' s cagers made their longest tour in the annals of the sport at the Mission campus. Kenneth Leake, head baseball manager, spent five days in Los Angeles with his charges in their an- nual invasion of the Southland.

Making its first appearance on the campus, wrestling was introduced to Santa Clara students as an intercollegiate sport by John DeMello, first-year law student and a former San Jose State grappler. A small but enthusiastic group of students reported at the start of the season. A prac- tice match with the neighboring Spartans saw the locals win, 3 matches to 2. Most promising men on the sguad were Lloyd Bertoglio, Rubert Thornton, Andy Stolarz, Al Olsen and Clarence Cassady. All return for action next year when a more ambitious schedule will be undertaken. — R.S. With an inexperienced team, Rev. A. J. Humphreys ' mermen showed great prom- ise for future seasons in the four meets held this spring. Highspot of the year was the smashing 45 to 12 win over St. Mary ' s in the renewal of a traditional rivalry. The crack swimming teams of CO. P. and S.F. State outpointed the locals in the other contests. Ray MacDonald, team captain; Elwin Filip- poni, Bill Reilly, Dick Schinazi and John Regan, all of whom are eligible in 1940, were the outstanding men on the sguad.

Showing flashes of great form during the past net season, Santa Clara ' s inconsistent tennis team finished in a tie for second place in the NCIC race. Victories over S.F. State, U.S.F. and St. Mary ' s earned the locals the runner-up spot, although they were twice vanguished by the championship San Jose State club in hard-fought duels. Captain of the Missionites was Bob Sulli- can, who has finished four years of top- flight tennis. Ranking team members were Ken Leake, John Storm, Fred Eyrond, Gene Fretz, John Boyer and Ed Hurlbutt. — A.W. Santa Clara ' s golf team wound up in third place in the NCIC links competition this spring. Winning the first match from U.S.F. by a 5 to 4 margin, the Broncos lost a chance to cop the series by bowing, 8 to 1, in the second engagement. San Jose State ' s championship team defeated the Mission stick-wielders twice, while St. Mary ' s broke even with the locals. Captain of the team was George Locke. Other sguad members were: Eugene Mc- Fadden, Richard Jobst, James Hutcheson, Bill Ebert and Maury Salomon. — R.S. THE REDWOOD • 1939 Page One Hundred Thirty-seven II T H A Touch Football . .

The sophomore and junior class touch- tackle football teams fought a close battle for the intramural football championship last September with the sophomores edg- ing out the title in the last game of the season, 14-8. The first half ended in a tie between these two classes as they battled to a 12-12 tie in their only meeting. Trounced 36-6 by the third yearmen, the seniors pulled the biggest upset of the sea- son by trimming the juniors, 12-6, in their second meeting. Dethroned from the intramural basketball championship for the first time since they were freshmen, the senior hoopmen wound up behind the juniors and the eventual winners, the sophomores, in the most hotly contested race The climax of the race was reached when the junior class, eliminators of the favored senior team, met the sophs as an added attraction to the St. Mary ' s-Santa Clara varsity game in San Jose. The small, fast sophs outplayed the hefty class of ' 40 hoop- men, winning 41-35. — R.S.

Barely turning back the senior netters, the sophomore intramural tennis squad won the annual fall tourney with three succes- sive triumphs. Competing for the title-holders were John Storm, Gene Limpert, Dion Holm, Al Wil- liams, Roy Folger and Ken Friedenbach. Top racquet-swingers for the other classes were such men as Ken Leake and Frank Ryan for the seniors, Gene Fretz and Bob Scholk for the juniors and Ed Hurlbutt and Jack Sexton for the freshmen. — R.S. Softball, one of the most popular of the intramural sports, completed the interclass competition for the year. The rejuvenated senior ten, two-year winner of the event, took the second half, while the juniors an- nexed the initial half. Led by Jack Sylva and Ray McCarthy, the juniors swept through the first half without a loss to win title honors. However, the seniors, behind the steady .hurling of Walt Smith, and the star play- ing of Shando, Campodonico, the Lautzes and Hayes, captured the second half from the juniors by a 3 to 1 score. — R.S.
