Gianera, S.J. Presidents Message As we look around us in these troublesome and unsettled times there are a few questions which all upright and honest people ask. What has brought on the present situation? Why cannot people live in peace and happiness? Is there a way to restore that v hich every- one, or at least Ihe vast majority, so earnestly desire? These are im- portant questions, questions which spring from our nature. There is an answer to these questions and it is very simple. Let the people of the world realize that they owe an obligation to God, their Creator. Let them turn their way back to Him; give Him that honor which belongs to Him. Let them serve Him as they should. Further they should live their lives, direct their actions by the principles He has set down; principles which are known to everyone. The prime object in life is not to gain riches, power and to exploit our fellow men for personal gain. This is a materialistic outlook on life which Is today all too prevalent. Too many have lost sight of or aban- doned the spiritual side of life. The business, social and educational objectives have, because of a wrong philosophy of life, become dis- torted. This wrong philosophy has brought on a lack of religion, a sepa- ration from Sod which is bound to bring on chaos, bitterness and un- happlness. The University of Santa Clara, In keeping with her expressed aim In education, endeavors to impart to her students a philosophy which properly evaluates the factors which enter into the lives of all. Keep that philosophy ever in mind, act according to the principles derived from that philosophy, persuade those with whom you deal that In no other way can we obtain the important things in life. Alma Mater bids the graduates farewell but asks that they be ever mindful of her, that they cherish the memories of the days spent here under her guidance. Alma Mater wishes you to return and return often to renew those memories, to seek counsel and direction whenever the need mcy arise. W. C. GIANERA, S.J. President. THE AXDVISORY bOAKt) EDWARD M. STRETCH, S.J. Vice-President 4Wl A challenging objective looms before the faculty and students of Santa Clara a% the oldest school in the West prepares for its second century. Fully recovered from disruptive effects of the war, the Mission School looks back upon the spirit and traditions of the past and plans for the new changes and developments of the future. Although the past two years have seen the student body swell in numbers far surpassing its best prewar years and there is the possibility of some further increase in the future, it remains the intention of its leaders that Santa Clara should always be a small school where the prob- lems and complications of its students can be given the individual attention and understanding of the faculty. Guiding the university in this policy is Rev. William C. Gianera, S.J., a man who has been associated with Santa Clara since he entered it as a student in 1903. After serving as instructor and then Vice-President, Father Gianera assumed the office of Dean of Faculties in 1928, a position which he admin- istered until he became President of the University in the autumn of 1945. His close acquaintance and long experience with the complex difficulties of school administration have won him the respect of faculty and students alike during this period of enlargement and return to normal. To fill the important positions on his immediate staff Father President has gathered a group of capable and conscientious men. First of these. Reverend JAMES A. KING, S.J. Dean of Faculties ERNEST P. WATSON, S.J. Treasurer THE ADVISORY BOARD IN SESSION Edward M. Stretch, S.J., was appointed Vice-President In the sumnner of 1946 after his return fronn four years ' service as an army chaplain. Upon him has fallen the arduous and for most part thankless duties of that difficult office. In the the administration of disciplinary matters Father Stretch has achieved the renown of being strict, but fair. Distinguished by the quiet and efficient manner in which he has handled the duties of the office of Treasurer since he assumed that position in 1942, Is Father Ernest P. Watson, S.J. Father Watson attended Santa Clara as a student In 1904, before entering the Jesuit Order In 1908. He took over his present position in 1942. Upon Father Francis J. Harrington, S.J., falls the difficult task of maintaining the buildings and improving their facilities for a capacity enrollment. Father Harrington Is also respon- sible for the constant attention and care necessary for main- taining the garden-like appearance of the grounds. The increasing number of applications for admission makes the task of gathering information on candidates an extremely important one, for a rigid selection is made necessary by the limited space available. Father James A. King, S.J., Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, organizes the Information from which the Committee on Admissions makes Its selections. Father King assumed his present position In 1945. A predominant part of Santa Clara student body life Is the spiritual atmosphere which sounds the keynote of the Jesuit educational system. The man whose leadership and counsel are responsible for this atmosphere Is Father Patrick J. Car- roll, S.J., Student Counsellor and Chaplain of the university. The spiritual and temporal aid he has given to the students during the current year is a tribute to the work and patience of Father Carroll. FRANCIS J. HARRINGTON, S.J. Administrator PATRICK J. CARROLL, S.J. Dean of Men ■ ' M ' l ' k Student Congress VALMOLKENBUHR, JR. President The work of the officers of the student body of the uni- versity carries with it a recognition that is at best evanescent. However, the officers of the 1947-48 school year left lasting reminders to the students of the future, renninders which will bring recognition to the ' r loyalty and sacrifice rendered for Santa Clara. An aggressive, forward-looking group, headed by Student Body President William V. Molkenbuhr, si ' arted the year with the idea that they v ere going to do something practical and lasting for the university, and that Is exactly what they did. In order to keep in constant contact with every member of the enlarged student body, the congress appointed two representatives on each floor of the resident halls. These representatives brought the plans and campaigns of the con- gress to every student, thereby making the student govern- ment an intrinsic part of every Santa Claran ' s college life. First project of the school year was to secure a permanent office for the student body officers, one in which all the records of p ast congresses and various other data could be kept in order. The second floor of Nobili Hall is now the location of the Office of the Associated Students. In it are kept not only the records and minutes of past and present congresses, but also all athletic trophies, such as the Little Big Game Bell, pictures of past athletic teams, and a framed copy of the constitution of the student body. Realizing the importance of a good appearance on the part of the university when in view of the general public, the GEORGE E. GRENFELL Vice-President MICHAEL T.HENNESSY Secretary FRANK L KEEGAN Treasurer MARSHALL F. MORAN C.I.C. Representative HALL G. HAYNES Sergeant-at-Arms iu. --«„ .■W: i congress then set abou ' l ' raising money to procure distinctive jackets for the University Glee Club. This was done by means of a raffle, held in November. The proceeds from this project were sufficient to provide twenty-five jackets for the song- sters. A campus-wide public address system was also provided by the raffle proceeds, as was a filing cabinet for the student body office. December found the congress sponsoring the first on- campus dance to feature a full dance band for musical en- tertainment. " Winter Frolic " was a non-profit affair, staged solely for the students ' social benefit. In addition to the orchestra, refreshments were also provided by the congress. The congress was vitally interested in any student activity, and lent its willing support to such affairs as the Block SC Society dance. In accordance with last year ' s legislation, the congress assumed full responsibility for planning, sponsoring and financing all athletic rallies. The student congress is composed of the officers of the student body, who are, besides Molkenbuhr: George Gren- fell, vice-president; Michael Hennessy, secretary; Frank Kee- gan, treasurer, and Hall Haynes, sergeant-at-arms. The presidents and representatives of all four undergrad- uate classes, delegates from campus organizations and the head cheer leader comprise the remainder of the congress. A student body picnic, and the traditional President ' s Day, a tribute from the student body to Rev. Father President, completed the agenda of the 1 947-48 student congress. Their efforts have set a standard for future congresses which will be hard to equal.

The aim of the College of Arts and Sciences is to develop to nnaturity those powers of a man by which he carries on the activities of life. Its curriculum comprises literary and scientific courses selected with special regard for their cul- tural value. The College of Arts and Sciences does not directly prepare a student for any of the specialized occupations or professions characteristic of the civilization of the present age, but rather affords a solid foundation for success within him. At the heart of the curriculum is philosophy which provides the student with an organized pattern of the universe and gives a significant meaning to the knowledge of the other studies and the experiences of life. Mathematics and the ex- perimental sciences acquaint the student with the varied material world about him. Social sciences and the humanities introduce him to man himself, his accomplishments in the past and his vast possibilities in the future. This contact with the important content of human thought and experience is given a higher and more significant mean- ing by the studies in religion which endeavor to point man toward his true purpose in life and unfold before him the supernatural value of grace. 14 College of SusiMEss Administration DEAN CHARLES J. DIRKSEN The College offers majors in Accounting, Business Manage- nnent, Econonnics and Finance. Additional work is offered in advertising, nnarketing, labor relations, statistics, transporta- tion, business law, retailing, personnel management, mathe- matics, and other subjects. During the first two years of the course, extreme special- ization is not the aim of the College. Rather, the student is trained well in the fundamentals of Economics, English, Ac- counting, Mathematics, and Logic, so that upon the selection of his major in his junior year, he will be well prepared and qualified to analyze and study the technical and special prob- lems of business. With the fundamental training he receives in the first two years of his course, and the special and technical knowledge acquired in the junior and senior years, the graduate of the College of Business Administration faces the world of modern business with a thorough education, which qualifies him to keep pace with the growth and development of business. 16 « " %f r % t ' - ' •■Higiimt College of Engineering DEAN GEORGE L. SULLIVAN A large part of the recent increase in enrollment at Santa Clara has been absorbed by the College of Engineering. Paralleling this increase has been the expansion of the faculty and the facilities of the College. Seven prefabricated steel buildings were erected to house laboratories and classrooms in preparation for the current year. These, added to the al- ready existing facilities in Montgomery Laboratory and the Science Building, provide a collegiate engineering plant com- parable with any in the country. The College of Engineering offers courses leading to a degree in any one of the three major branches of engineer- ing, civil, mechanical and electrical. But the ideal for which the Santa Clara engineer strives is to be more than surveyor, machinist or electrician. His mind must possess the acumen and culture which only a broad college training and college association can give. He is a scientist, and his acquaintance with and love of mathematics and science should be the foundation on which his knowledge of their technical appli- cation is based. Above all he must be trained to serve his Creator and to be an active and useful member of the com- munity in which he lives. ? College of Lav DEAN EDWIN J.OWENS A twofold purpose epitomizes the aim of the College of Law. Not only does It desire to send forth men of sound and acute Intellect, but also to endow these men with the qualities which promote upright character. The " case-method " of instruction, the method of classroom Instruction corresponding to that pursued by recognized law schools throughout the country. Is followed. It Is the conviction of those charged with the administration of the College of Law that the most effective teaching Is fre- quently not teaching in the formal sense at all. Nor do they hold that the Intellect Is developed or moral character In- creased by mere imparting of information In formal school sessions. As a result of these convictions the College has been com- mitted to the policy of being and remaining a small law school In which the greatest Intimacy and contact may be maintained between teacher and student not only In the class- room but constantly throughout the day. .»v n } i- , : .. .

That record shows members of this class entering Santa Clara in years ranging from 1938 to 1944. It shows classmates ranging in age almost ten years apart. It shows men experienced not only in academic pursuits, but in war, in the raising of families, in facing a disrupted world. The class of 1 948 includes businessmen who are acutely aware of the forces of finance; future lawyers who need no reminder of the gravity of the legal profession; engineers already blessed with some share of practical experience; future teachers, writers and doc- tors, few of whom whose backgrounds are not broader than graduates of old. In short, the knowledge acquired at Santa Clara by the graduates of 1948 had been widely supplemented with a wealth of real life applications. It is not difficult to recognize the force that a broader background has exerted upon the accomplishments of this class. If there is anything more striking about its record than its variability, it is its success. Evident is the success in the classroom from the scholastic average. Evident is its success in athletics from its numerous lettermen. Success has been enjoyed in its social affairs, in outside activities in work, in play, and in prayer. The history of the class of 1948 would be incomplete if no mention were made of those phases of modern college life foreign to the education of old at Santa Clara. World War II has introduced to the school a " Vets ' Village, " housing a happy group of young families whose community spirit has added a pleasant note to campus life. New, too, are the numerous boarding houses in the town of Santa Clara wherein students have learned to " batch it, " combining their studies with the skills of housekeeping. Ready, then, is this class to depart, willing to meet the challenges of a threatening world, well equipped to do its share in reshaping that world. LEFT TO RIGHT: James E. Hanses, Raymond N.

PRENTICE Vice-President Santa Clara faced trying times in the period of tran- sition from pinched wartime student bodies, to postwar numbers of students unprecedented in the school ' s ninety-seven year history. To meet the challenge of those trying times came the class of 1948. Ninety-seven seniors led the school during the 1947- 1948 school year, and led it well. Outstanding in scho- lastic, as well as extracurricular activities, the senior class set an example for the classes to come which will be hard to equal. Under the class president, Raymond M. Gleason, the seniors lent a spark of interest and intensity to every activity they entered. Other class officers included: Robert J. Prentice, vice-president; John F. Smith, sec- retary; John F. Keefe, treasurer, and James E. Hanses, sergeant-at-arms. Student body president for the year was senior Wil- liam V. Molkenbuhr, Jr., other student body officers from the senior class included George E. Grenfell, vice- president, and Michael T. Hennessy, secretary. On the literary side, the seniors also led the field. Editor of the campus literary monthly, THE OWL, was Alfred O. Kelly. Senior assistant editors were William T. McDonald and Paul M. McCormick. David E. Baci- galupo acted as sports editor for the REDWOOD, while Joseph W. Darrow was business manager for the an- nual. Bacigalupo was also president of the Business Ad- ministration Association, which had an all-senior list of officers, including: Marshall F. Moran, vice-president; Robert J. McFarland, secretary; Francis J. Donovan, treasurer, and Frank A. Laney, Jr., sergeant-at-arms. President of the Block " SC " Society was senior Wil- liam J. Prentice. Vice-president was Francis C. Smith. James E. Hanses was the president of the Sodality of Our Lady for the year. In the social life of the campus, the annual Senior Ball was held by many to be one of the outstanding dances of the year. It was held May 15 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. Patrick J. Creegan, dance com- mittee chairman, secured the orchestra of Ray Hackett for the night. Senior Week activities late in the spring semester highlighted the activities of the class. The annual Senior Retreat was held at El Retire San Inigo, the Jesuit Retreat House at Los Altos. Officers of the Engineering Society from the senior class included president, Raymond A. Hock; vice-presi- dent, Robert S. Dougherty; and treasurer, Thomas F. Griffin. Chairmen of the subordinate societies were Joseph M. Scaroni, AIEE; Robert S. Dougherty, ASME; and Eugene S. Campi, ASCE. John F. Smith was president of the National Honor Society for Jesuit colleges, the Alpha Sigma Nu, Santa Clara chapter. Representing Santa Clara at the Catholic Intercol- legiate Council meetings was Marshall F. Moran. And at the National Students ' Association, Santa Clara was represented by Michael T.

Barakatt, John L. Feeney. JUNIOR CLASS JOHN V. DIEPENBROCK President JOHN L FEENEY, JR. Vice-President To the junior class of the University of Santa Clara has fallen the task of furnishing competent leaders for the athletic, acadennic, spiritual, and social organizations on the Mission campus. And the junior class has not failed in that undertaking. Following the example set by John Diepenbrock, an aspirant to the legal profession and the class president, prominent men of ' 49 have flocked into each and every Bronco activity. Aiding Diepenbrock in the management of the intricate problems of class government are Vice- President John Feeney, Secretary Thomas Barakatt, and Treasurer Charles Sambrailo. Representing the class before the Student Congress, the legislative body of stu- dent government at Santa Clara, is Frank Keegan. These five positions, the most important which the junior class has to offer, are in the hands of five capable vet- erans who learned their lessons of dependability and responsibility on the battlefields of the recent war. Santa Clara ' s junior class has sent eager participants into athletic competition, whether it be intercollegiate or intramural. Michael Adza holds down the center position of the Bronc varsity grid team, while Vernon Hare and Moses Chavez cavort in the backfield. Tom Kelly patrols the outer pastures for Patty Cottrell ' s varsity nine, in the good company of footballer Bill Renna. George Nichols divides his time between the forward slot on the basketball squad and the sports page of the weekly " Santa Clara. " Al Martin, another versatile young man, spent his autumn directing foot- ball huddles, and his spring semester as leadoff man for the varsity tennis team. Past editor of the " Santa Clara " is J. Joseph Faber; under his direction were Junior Reporters John Banister and George Nichols, while James Bowe divided his leisure moments between managing the advertising and finance of the paper and protecting the Sanctuary So- ciety. Card stunts at football contests were in large part due to the imagination and perseverance of John Ben- nett, chairman of the Rally Committee. The engineering societies drew their strength from the presence of such noteworthy juniors as John Conrado, William Ronchelli, Basil Binckley, Joseph Brown, and Al Beltrami. Donald Sullivan held the vice-presidency of the Mendel Society which included among its mem- bers Patrick Golden, Fred Maida, Peter Consula, and Ted Donnelly. Heading the Edmund J. Young Writers ' Club was Junior Edward Silva; frequent contributions to the club were made by James and Jerry Shipsey and Mel Berling er. In the Senate, senior debating society of the Literary Congress, Martin Whelan, Jerry Fahey, Leonard Jones, William Sullivan, James Boitano, John Campion, Daniel Murphy, and John Mclnerney repre- sented the junior class; while prominent members of the Glee Club included Thomas Tuttle, Gil Wright, Horace Maggetti, Robert Kenneally, and Frank Keegan. With such adequate representation in all major cam- pus activities, the junior class of the University of Santa Clara looks forward expectantly to its golden year, ' 49. THOMAS A.

Hanratty, Harvey L. Christensen, Armand E. Ferrante. OFHOMORE CIA oo ■■fm% HARVEY CHRISTENSEN President The sophomore class of 1948 yielded the laurels of size to the freshman class this year, but retained the leader- ship of activities throughout both semesters. Still large, the class of ' 50 managed to make its interest in the school widely felt both in academic and athletic organi- zations. Harvey L. Christensen, president; James P. Hanratty, vice-president; J. Vincent Maloney, treasurer; Armand E. Ferrante, secretary, and Michael A. Gonzales, ser- geant-at-arms, served as officers for the class. Other than in his executive position, Harvey Christensen won acclaim for his defensive prowess as guard on the Bronco basketball team, and as an outstanding first baseman for the Mission nine. Pat Hanratty in the Student Con- gress worked for and finally succeeded in his fight for University affiliation with the Influential N.S.A. Sophomores practically published " The Santa Clara " this year. James D. Canty, after one semester as news editor, took over the second semester duties of editor- in-chief. William B. Macomber served as news editor in the spring semester. On the feature page, Thomas E. McCarthy and Robert L. Shindler served a semester apiece. Arthur F. Johnson and Clifford S. Be+tinger headed the sports page. James O ' Neill, George Murphy, Walter Hirth and John Sherman were constant contributors to the various pages. " The Owl, " campus literary monthly, besides many contributions by Sophomores Thomas McCarthy, James O ' Neill and George Murphy, had the editorial services of Phillip A. Patton and John Sherman. " The 1948 Redwood " boasted a sophomore literary staff, George E. Murphy acted as literary editor, and was ably assisted by James O ' Neill and Robert Shindler. The Bronco grid machine was one of the largest sophomore activities. Among the Block SC winners were James Buckley, James Canelo, Paul Conn, Eugene De- flllipls, James Dowling, Hall Haynes, Jeremiah Hen- nessy, John Hock, George Niehaus, Donald Keck, Thomas Payne, Clement Perrucci, Donald White and Ellery Williams. The basketball roster was also studded with soph- omore names. Among the cageballers were Harvey Christensen, Arden McKIIlop, Robert Sunderland, Thomas Cruza, Harvey and Harold Toso, Donald Kane, Paul Holm and John Holmes. The baseball team fielded such sophomores as Charles Bedolla, Harvey Christensen, Peter Fitipatrick, David Smith, and the Toso brothers. The minor sports were not devoid of sophomore ath- letes, either. There were men like Thomas Burns, tennis; Miles Braten, track; James Buckley and Gaeton De Mattel, boxers; and John Hock, wrestling. The Sophomore Forensic Society was reorganized after the postwar exigencies ended, by Norman San- guinetti and Thomas Conn. The Clay M. Greene Players, campus dramatic so- ciety, under President James C. O ' Neill, presented a mystery, " Ten Little Indians, " in the second semester. James O ' Neill, Thomas Doyle, George Murphy and Howard LIndekugel were among the sophomores in the cast. In practically every organization and publication on the campus, the sophomore class of 1948 has acquitted itself extremely well. Santa Clara looks forward to next year, when all these activities are transferred to the importance of their junior year. ARMAND FERRANTE Secretary ROVERT L.

NARD President The freshman class of 1948 was distinguished by the fact that it will be the Centennial graduating class of Santa Clara University. The nnembers of the class of 1951 will receive their sheepskins exactly one hundred years after Father Nobili first held classes in the Mission school. The freshmen of 1948 showed that they were proud to possess this honor by participating creditably in the activities of the University open to them. Robert I. Nard held the freshman reins of govern- ment, having been elected president in the September elections. He was assisted by Sam H. Winkleblecic as vice-president. Robert J. Diepenbrock held the post of freshman class secretary and Gordon Rice was treasurer for the first year men. Peter F. Cimino brought laurels to the class of 195! when he won the annual Dramatic Arts contest of the University. Cimino ' s skillful portrayal enabled him to gain the prize, despite the close competition of several outstanding campus thespians. With the return of freshman athletics to Santa Clara, the mission school was well represented in all major sports in the freshman division. On +he football field the freshman team played five contests, winning one. Three of the losses, however, were decided in the final minute of play. Joseph Anas- tasi proved to be a promising backfield prospect for the varsity. The freshman basketball squad won nine games wh ' le sustaining five defeats. Tall center Donald R. Mount was the high scoring player for the season. Several first year men showed considerable ability on the baseball field. Infielders Andrew Harrington and Charles F. Myatt were big factors in the successful freshman baseball season. Catcher Louis Berberet dis- played some powerful hitting ability. Robert I. Nard, freshman class president, saw regular duty at second base for the varsity baseball squad. Nard proved his worth to the team throughout the season. On the social side, the freshmen were given a recep- tion dance by the Catala Club. The evening proved to be a great success. The freshmen also gave a dance themselves in Siefert Gymnasium, patterned on the theme of " Autumn Serenade. " Prior to the annual Santa Clara-St. Mary ' s football game, the class of 1951 stood the traditional watch over the rally bonfire. No marauders were detected by the vigilant guards. The first year men completed the year with a picnic outing for the entire class. SAMUEL H. WINKLEBLECK Vice-President GORDON RICE Treasurer 75 EUGENE G. ABINANTE LUIS M. ABOITIZ DONALD M.

Sacramento, California I A VV GRADUATES Having completed a prescribed course in under- graduate work, the student who enters the University ' s College of Law must assume scholastic burdens consid- erably In excess of those borne during his undergraduate tenure as an English, Political Science or Economics major. For this reason, the entrance requirements are sufficiently rigid to insure the matriculation of those students only whose records indicate that they are capable of surviving the rigorous three-year course. The efficacious work of Dean Edwin J. Owens and the legal faculty relative to establishing the College of Law among the top-ranking institutions on the Pacific Coast was manifested when the results of the California State Bar examinations of last year showed that the graduates of the College of Law upheld the fine traditions of previous classes. The College of Law is also a member of the Association of American Law Schools. It is the desire of the faculty and administration that by means of the Individual instruction, which a small enrollment permits, as well as through the channels of law school conferences and sponsorship of law students by practicing attorneys, the student at Santa Clara shall receive that degree and quality of mental discipline which will best qualify him to pursue his profession com- petently and efficiently. 82 SECOND Y£AR IA¥ THOMAS J.

YELL LEADERS RALLY COMMITTEE FOOTBALL BASKETBALL BASEBALL TENNIS MINOR SPORTS INTRAMURAL SPORTS Yell Leaders 4v HARVEY CHRISTENSEN BOB KEIFER No football season, or any college vent for that matter, would be complete without an organized cheering section. Santa Clara, always a small school, has necessarily had cheering sections that were small in numbers. But what it lacked in size was compen- sated for by a stirring spirit. As in the past, this year the Bronco rooting section gave its teams the utmost support and in a vocal way informed Santa Clara athletes that the students were appreciative of their efforts. This student support explains, in part, the aggressiveness shown by Bronco teams. Although there were more red-capped, white-shirted rooters in the Santa Clara section than at any other time in the history of the Mission school, the Bronco rooting section was still small, comparatively. The size may have changed but everyone knew it was the Santa Clara rooting section because it never let its teams down no matter how far ahead or behind they might have been. The success of a rooting section depends, in great part, on the yell leaders who direct the group. Santa Clara ' s largest rooting section was in the hands of four yell leaders. It was Don Kane, Harvey Christensen, Pat Walsh, and Bob Keifer who organized cheers at games, rallies and general student body assemblies. Like all Santa Clarans they were proud of their teams, and proud to give them support and let the Brorrco athletes know that they were behind them one hundred per cent.

Ji m. -w -- .xS Rally Committee stk W JACK BENNETT Chairman Jack Benneff and his Rally Comnni-ffee staged four prefootball game rallies during the football season on the eve of the Stanford, Saint Mary ' s, California, and U.S.F. games. In a departure from the custom of the past, Bennett used a predominance of campus talent and student-originated skits at these rallies, rather than professional entertainers. Of the four rallies presented, the traditional Saint Mary ' s rally was the most unique. This rally was held adjacent to the site of the huge bonfire on a specially constructed stage in an open field near the campus. Along with student entertainment, each rally presented well-known Bay Area lumi- naries in the sports world, as well as former Bronco athletes. Assisting Bennett on the Rally Committee were Mel Reilly, John Feeney, John Diepenbrock, Joe O ' Halloran, Don Canty, Bob Prentice, Cliff Bettinger, Mathew Camp- bell, Jim Doyle, and Tom Arena. The activities of the Rally Committee also included the planning and directing of the intricate card stunts that were part of half-time activities at the Stanford, U.S.F., and Saint Mary ' s games.

End- ing the year with four victories and four defeats against opposition that provided for no " breathers, " the Broncos fulfilled the expectations of the coaching staff, which before the season opened, said they would be happy to go through their difficult schedule with a .500 per cent average. The 1947 edition of the football Bronco was com- prised of relatively young, inexperienced footballers and often it was this very inexperience that proved their downfall. In spite of their comparative inexperience, the Bron- cos turned in many memorable games of football this past season and supplied thrills for the fans from their inauspicious opening to the triumphant closing of the season. It is always difficult to single out the best perform- ance of a football team, but for this year ' s Broncos the job is not so difficult. By far the finest game the Broncos played last year was the season finale against the traditional foe, Saint Mary ' s. Smarting from a defeat at the hands of the Gaels the previous season, the Broncos displayed a fierce attack that held spectators spellbound while at the same time they prevented the Gaels from mustering an attack of their own. This was the day that Santa Ciaru was hot. Linemen and backs seemingly acted as a single man with clocklike precision, everyone carrying out his assignment and appearing at the right spot at the right time, whether it be on offense or defense. In stopping the Gaels the Broncos settled another old score by limiting the activities of the Gael star, Herman Wedemeyer. When Wedemeyer left the field it was the first time in his career that he had lost more yardage than he had gained. One Saturday afternoon last season the Broncos were not only cold, they were frigid. That was the blustery afternoon the Broncos played in the wind and the snow and had their first taste of the mid-west version of winter. While the Broncos flapped their arms to keep warm the acclimated Spartans from Michigan State enjoyed themselves as they waltzed to an easy 28-0 victory. One thing was certain, the Broncos were very pleased to leave frozen Michigan for the sunny clime of Santa Clara Valley. The true mettle of the Broncos was shown in their battle with the highly underrated College of the Pa- cific Tigers. Behind three touchdowns at halftime, the Broncos came roaring back with a rare display of offen- sive play to pull the game out of the fire and spoil an unbeaten season for the Stockton school. The remainder of the schedule found Santa Clara MANAGER BILL DONNELLY lukewarm against U.S.F., hot in losing to Southern Methodist, and again lukewarm in eking out a triumph against Fresno State. In their curtain raiser against California it was a matter of California controlling the temperature. With the final gun ending the Saint Mary ' s game, senior Broncos who had played their last football game for Santa Clara watched Student Body President Val Molkenbuhr take possession of " The Bell, " symbolic of victory in " The Little Big Game. " Captain Guy Giaco- puzzi. Bill Prentice, Cy Smith, Val Molkenbuhr, Gil Mc- Dermid, Pete Davis, and Bob Rados put their cleats away for the last time. Their services will be missed sorely by Coaches Len Casanova, Lou Zarza, Nello Falaschi, and Jack Roche. • BRONCO VARSITY— TOP ROW, left to right: Canelo, Kecit, Sheridan, Sambrailo, O ' Sullivan, Sarro, Yore, Boyle, Haynes, Williams, Scott, Falaschi.

GOLDEN BEARS ROMP, 33-7 In their first game of the 1947 season the Broncos faced a powerful University of California teann in Strawberry Can- yon and came out on the short end of a 33-7 score. California just proved too big, too fast and too deep for Len Casanova ' s charges. One minute and three seconds after the opening Iclclcoff Bear fullback George Fong plowed through tackle for 39 yards and a California touchdown. The only Bronco score came after Vern Sterling pounced on a Bear fumble. With the ball in Bronco hands, Bill Sheridan, Hall Haynes, and Bill Prentice combined to pass, run, and plunge 56 yards in a sustained drive to the one-foot line where Hall Haynes plunged over the last white marker.

The second half was a repetition of the first, with the Bear reserve strength proving too much for the Broncos to handle. Before the final gun had barked the Blue and Gold had added two more touchdowns to their total. Bright spot for the Broncos was the fact that they gained I 14 yards through the air in completing nine out of eighteen pass attempts. Standouts for Santa Clara in the season ' s curtain raiser were Vern Sterling and Tom Payne in the line, and Hall Haynes, who turned In his best performance of the year from the left halfback slot. j : flP : . . 4 V - M ' - t . K ■ Long-strldinq Bill Sambrailo racei head on into converging Bears TEXANS BUST BRONCOS, 22-6 A greatly improved Bronco eleven played one of Its best games of the year before a scant crowd of 5000 fans who braved a chill wind in Keiar Stadium to watch Santa Clara drop a 22-6 decision to All-American Doak Walker and the powerful Mustangs from Southern Methodist University. The score, however, is no indication of how close the game really was. The Missionites piled up 14 first downs to 8 for the Dallasites and played the Mustangs on even terms a through the game, but lacked the necessary punch to score more frequently. Billed as a passing team, the Mustangs hugged the ground all day and built their attack around Doak Walker, who per- sonally accounted for 20 of the Mustang points. He scored his first touchdown from three yards out after the Bronco forward wall had put on a great goal line stand to halt three previous thrusts by the Mustangs. Midway in the third period he raced 45 yards through the entire Santa Clara team for his and the Mustangs ' second score. Following the lone Bronco tally he scooped up the Bronco kickoff and wiggled and squirmed 99 yards for his third touchdown. He also kicked two of the extra points. All-American Doak Walker outraces Dan Buckley (88), Clenn Perucci (62), George House (60) and Don Keck (81). Bill Sheridan engineered the Bronco touchdown by leading his mates in a drive that covered 70 yards and ended by his zooming a pass to end Don Keck, who scored untouched. Moe Chavez added the seventh and final point with a conversion. The Mustangs ' last two points resulted from a misdirected Bronco lateral which bounded Into the end zone and was pounced on by a host of Mustang linemen. t: .ijiV ' --i " -i:a 9 ■■€m S pBr ' - ' --ivJS?

BRONCOS N»P FRESNO, 20-19 The slim margin of a point after touchdown resulted in the Broncos registering their first win of the season in a wild game played under the lights against a spirited Fresno State eleven. The final score was 20-19. it was Bill Sheridan, and a new-found speed merchant, half- back Paul Conn, who paced the Broncos to a win in a game which was marked by .six Santa Clara fumbles, all of which were recovered by the alert Bulldogs. A 65-yard prance by Sheridan resulted in the first Bronco touchdown. Sheridan accepted a punt and with the aid of excellent downfield blocking, kept on moving until he reached the end zone. Paul Conn scored the second touchdown from 8 yards out after Bill Renna, on a lateral from Sheridan, had ripped off a 25-yard gain.

The Broncos came charging out of the locker room and added another touchdown with Conn doing most of the heavy work, racking up 41 yards in two tries. This made the score 20-13. But once again Fresno State fought back and scored on a pass play that covered 51 yards with end Bob Hoffman on the receiving end. With the score 20-19 and probable victory hanging in the balance, the Bulldog place kicker never had a chance as his extra point bid was beautifully smothered, giving the Broncos their longsought-after victory.

BRONCOS SCALP rNDIANS, 13-7 Consistent and low-charging forwards combined with slick running by Bronco backs enabled Santa Clara ' s footballers to walk off with an easy 13-7 triumph on the home grounds of an outclassed Stanford team. Although the Broncos threatened constantly, the injury- ridden Indians managed to stave off a number of touchdown bids, but could not cope with the Santa Clara line which kept the Indian attack in check all afternoon. The first break in the game came when captain Cy Smith nailed Mike Durkett, Indian quarterback, for a 14-yard loss deep in Stanford territory. Forced to punt, the same Durkett fumbled a low pass which was recovered by another end, Jerry Hennessey, on the Stanford I. Bill Prentice had little trouble plowing over for the touchdown and Moe Chavez had even less trouble in booting the extra point. Bill Renna, the made-over center, set up the next Santa Clara touchdown thrust when he intercepted an Indian pass and moved 41 yards down the sidelines, aided by a key block by Don Keck, to the Stanford 2. From the 2 Vern Hare found a gaping hole on the left side and went over for the score. Chavez missed the conversion. It seemed as though the Broncos might hold the Indians scoreless, but a Bronco fumble and a Stanford recovery behind the goal line late in the fourth period put an end to any thoughts of a whitewashing. In a fancy bit of running, Bill Prontice i$ away on a touchdown jaunt TAME TIGERS, 21-20 Santa Clara ' s Broncos put the only blemish on an other- wise spotless College of the Pacific record when they defeated the Tigers in a hair-raising night game in Stockton, 21-20. With COP ' s passing wizard Eddie LeBaron throwing three touchdown passes and completing six heaves In six attempts, the Tigers left the gridiron at half-time with a comfortable 20 point lead. An aroused Bronco team took the field in the second half and while the Santa Clara line made life miserable for quar- terback LeBaron, Bill Sheridan pul on an aerial circus of his own. The Broncos ' first score came when Sheridan tossed the pigskin into the arms of halfback Hall Haynes after the Broncos had taken possession of the ball on Tom Payne ' s recovery of a Tiger fumble. Moe Chavez converted to make the score 20-7. Touchdown number two came after a bad kick by LeBaron put the ball on the Bronco 18. On second down Sheridan flipped to end Jerry Hennessey who galloped over for the touchdown. Again Moe " The Toe " booted the extra point. After moving the ball to the COP 47 in four plays, Sheridan was chased all the way back to his own 3 I before he could heave a screen pass, to Bill Prentice, who displayed one of the most sensational bits of running seen all season by racing across the field and then down the sidelines 46 yards to a touchdown that knotted the score. Moe Chavez raced into the game and calmly booted his third point of the night through the uprights to give the Broncos their victory. COP ' s Poulos chased by Tom Payne (73), Bill Renna (34) and Gil McDermid (61] ■4 ' . SPARTANS WHITEWASH BRONCOS, 28-0 The sun-treated Broncos from Santa Clara ran into a blinding snowstorm, icy cold winds, and a rugged Michigan State team on their invasion of East Lansing and found that the com- bination was more than they could handle as they shivered through a 28-0 lacing in snow-covered Macklin Stadium. Delayed trains, workouts in the snow, and weather condi- tions unknown to the Broncos made their swing into the mid- west a complete failure. The Spartans, unabashed by the bliz- zard, handed the Broncos their first whitewashing since prior to the war. In dropping the contest to the Staters the Broncos lost their first game of this series, which was initiated before the war. The Broncos were victors in two of the matches and one ended in a tie. Almost simultaneous with the whistle calling the teams into action there began a snow flurry. Soon there was another flurry, this time of Michigan State touchdowns. Three and one-half minutes after the contest began Spartan Horace Smith gathered in a Bronco punt and raced 85 yards to a touchdown. During the first half the Spartans added two more touchdowns to take a 21-0 lead at the half. Don White makes desperate at+empt to drive through Bob Neller as he is pulled down deep in his own territory. A slippery ball, poor visibility and frigid temperature stopped the Bronco aerial game cold and only on two occa- sions did they threaten on the ground. Highlight of the game for the Broncos was the ejj cellent defensive play of quarterback Al Martin who, time after time, repulsed touchdown bids by the Spartans. His was probably the finest bit of defensive play by any Bronco during the entire season. . 4n Don ball-carrier, Pete Matisi, is about to be dumped by Eilery Wiiiid ' - (80) and Paul Conn (41). .

WINS, 20-9 For the first time in 16 years a Santa Clara. football team succumbed to the University of San Francisco Dons when a well-polished Don outfit put on a second half drive that netted them a 20-9 triumph. Big favorites to win the contest, the Dons had their hands full with the Broncos and trailed at the half. The first half saw the underdog Broncos outplay their bigger and deeper foe but the pressure of the Don reserves was the telltale differ- ence in the second half. A Bronco fumble set up the first touchdown of the after- noon for the Dons, who took advantage of their opportunity and turned the fumble into a score to take a six-point lead. Fast charging Jerry Hennessey drove through the Don line in the second quarter and blocked a punt that rolled into the end zone, giving the Broncos a safety and their first two points.

As the half ended the Broncos rested with a three-point lead after having outplayed the Dons on all fronts. With the start of the second half little Forrest Hall, USF halfback, began chewing up yardage along with Joe Scott, and just before the third quarter ended Hall flew past grappling Bronco defenders for a touchdown. In the third quarter, with the Broncos very tired, the Dons opened up another offensive drive and this time Scott boomed through a hole in the line for five yards and the final touchdown.

SANTA CLARA CRUSHES GAELS, 33-9 Santa Clara ' s Broncos rose to offensive heights in their last game of the season v hen they completely outclassed Saint Mary ' s Gaels in the 28th renewal of the 5 1 -year-old " Little Big Game " by crushing the Moragans to the tune of 33-7 in Kezar Stadium. With the victory went possession of " The Bell " which was installed as a game trophy. In the future The Bell will go to the winning team after each traditional " Little Big Game. " Before many of the 45,000 fans had settled in their seats, quat-terback Al Martin caught the opening kickoff on his own 4-yard line and with the aid of brilliant downfield blocking by Guy Gaicopuzzi, Don Keck, and Dick Bauer, ran 94 yards to give the Broncos a lead they never relinquished. Wildly screaming Bronco rooters hardly had time to relax before Santa Clara reached pay dirt again. On their first play from scrimmage, following Tom Payne ' s recovery of a Gael fumble. Bill Sheridan passed to Ellery Williams who out- raced the Gael secondary to tally the second touchdown. With amazing suddenness the Broncos were driving toward another touchdown. Don Keck, a tower of strength on defense all day, grabbed a fumble and with Al Martin at the helm it took only three plays for the Broncos to score again, this time on a bullet pass from Martin to Keck. Thus in the short space of six minutes the Broncos had struck with lightning-like rapidity to score three touchdowns and amass 19 points. Saint Mary ' s fought back and their gameness netted them a safety late in the first period after a blocked Sheridan punt bounded into the end zone. Speedy halfback Dick Bauer brought the fans to their feet again early in the second quarter with a sensational circus catch of Bill Sheridan ' s pass, and flew 40 yards to account for the fourth Bronco core. The touchdown play covered 64 yards in its entirety. Moe Chavez, who had a busy afternoon, booted the extra point. Two minutes were left in the half when the Gaels retaliated with a 5 1 -yard touchdown pass play, Bill Van Huit tossing to Paul Crowe. In spite of the fact that they moved the ball almost at will through the Gael line, the Broncos scored but once in the second half. In the waning seconds of the game Bob Rados intercepted a desperation pass thrown by a Gael back from behind his own goal line and romped for a touchdown untouched by Gael hands. The Saint Mary ' s offense was completely stymied and their great halfback, Herman Wedemeyer, was pushed all over the field by the hard-charging Santa Clara linemen who spent most of the afternoon in the Gael backfleld.

Frosh football went the way of all organized sports during the war, and due to the continu- ation of wartime football rules which permitted freshmen to play varsity football, no freshman team was organized until last season. Starting from scratch after five long years proved no easier for the frosh than it did for the varsity. In fact it was probably tougher. A late start, schedule troubles and a lack of equip- ment hampered the freshmen. The initial practice session was held less than two weeks before the opening game and the first freshman football season since prewar days was launched on a note of apprehension. However, what the freshmen lacked in organization they made up for in spirit and hustle. Coach Jack Roche greeted fifty-three candidates at the first turnout on Ryan Field and noting their typical freshman enthusiasm, Roche began the job of moulding a football team. The first game of the frosh ' s five game schedule found them lined up against Santa Rosa Junior College in a night game at Santa Rosa. The Junior College succeeded in taking a 12-6 win over the young Broncos, but considering the time that the frosh had practiced and played together they put up a stubborn battle against a more experienced football team. One week later the frosh journeyed to the " FARM " to take on the Stanford freshmen in the Indian ' s stadium. Stan ford boasted one of the strongest freshman elevens on the Coast, but the Indian ' s star-studded outfit only managed to sneak by Santa Clara, 7-0, on a sensational desperation touchdown pass that covered ninety yards. COACH JACK ROCHE 112 The highly touted Loyola Lions were next to tangle with Jack Roche ' s Santa Clara freshnnen, and Loyola, paced by the sensational back Al Pollard, was a heavy pregame favor- ite. Again the Bronco frosh almost upset the apple cart, the Lions taking a hard-fought 13-12 decision with a touchdown In the last forty-five seconds. The hapless U.S.F. Dons drew the number four spot on the Broncos ' schedule and here the frosh came into their own, blasting U.S.F. 41-0. The San Franciscans were powerless be- for the Broncos ' offense and couldn ' t pierce the Santa Clara defense either on the ground or through the air. The final game of the 1947 frosh season brought the Saint Mary ' s Gaels to Prune Valley and Santa Clara ' s freshmen were unable to stop the Gael invasion, bowing to the Saints 27-0. In completing a season which saw them win one game and lose four this year ' s freshman football team did their best considering the conditions under which they were working. Most of their own practice time was spent preparing the varsity and although their loss column outweighs their number of wins, all of the games, with the exception of the Saint Mary ' s game, were close and could have gone either way. Several of the freshman footballers showed promise during the course of the season and undoubtedly will be heard from next year when they are eligible for varsity competition. In the backfield, Buster Wraith, a big and hard driving fullback, stood out on both offense and defense and was the spark- plug of the frosh squad. Close behind Wraith in garnering backfield honors was Joe Anastasi, a fast and flashy halfback. The tackle spot was far and away the strongest position on the team. Four outstanding tackles, Ray Verkerk, John Justice, Bob Dominick, and John Mirande, made the competition for that position very keen. In the center of the line, Gordon Rice played steady, heads-up football at the pivot spot all season. Lou Berberet and Ed Miller, two hard-charging guards rounded out the line strength for the frosh.

SASK£TSALI v ' ft j8 «C s BASKETBALL Playing from one end of the nation to the other and nrseeting the top cage teams on both coasts, the Bronco quintet brought their season to a close with a record of twelve wins and eleven setbacks, averaging fifty points per game and compiling a total of I 100 points for the 23 game slate. FRANK LANEY Co-Captain In their second season under the tutelage of Ray Pesco, the Broncos were not nearly so frisky as the record-breaking team that wore the red and white the previous year. Pesco ' s team was composed of holdover varsity lettermen, Frank Laney, Dave MarlanI, Bob Mc- KIllop, Joe Crowley, George Nichols, Harvey Christen- sen, and Paul Holm. Newcomers to the squad were Joe Greenbach, Pete Peletta, transfers, and Bob Sunder- land, George Stein, and Jack Holmes, graduates of last year ' s Junior Varsity. During the course of the season the Broncos gained the distinction of being one of the best comeback teams on the Coast. Bronco fans spent many heart palpitating evenings watching their team wait until the final stages of the game before letting loose with a barrage of buckets. The 1 947-48 team started out the season in commend- able fashion and made a successful tour of the East. Once they returned they seemed to lose the knack of playing consistent basketball. On alternate nights the Broncos looked like champions and then like doormats. This was illustrated especially well when the Broncos played the California Bears even down to the wire at the Cow Palace, only to be drubbed the next night on the same court by Stanford. With the close of the collegiate schedule most of the Broncos traded their Santa Clara uniforms and donned the suits of the San Francisco Rexilites. Entered as a unit in an A.A.U. tournament the Broncos showed their true caliber to Bay Area fans by copping the cham- pionship. So outstanding were Dave Mariani, Frank Laney, and Joe Greenbach that they were selected for the tournament all-star team. Mariani was further hon- ored by being chosen as the most outstanding player in the tournament. Earlier in the season Bob McKillop was picked on the Cow Palace all-star team. This tourney victory enabled the Rexilites to journey to Denver and vie for a spot in the Olympic tryouts. The Broncos were eliminated in the second round of play. Two court stars, co-captains Frank Laney and Dave Mariani, brought their Santa Clara playing careers to a close with the final game of the season. Laney takes with him the distinction of holding the all-time scoring record for a single season, 325 points, which he com- piled during the 1946-47 season. During the current campaign he totaled 261 points. Mariani will be remem- bered for his tricky ball handling, unerring passing and excellent floor play. He scored 174 points during the past season.

With seven games under their belts, including five vic- tories and two setbacks, the Broncagers embarked on a tour of " The Far " East where they encountered four of the nation ' s top quintets and concluded their barnstorming tour by win- n ' ng two and losing two games. First stop on the Bronco itinerary was the nation ' s capital where they tangled with an unbeaten Georgetown Univer- sity aggregation. A stirring last-half surge by the Broncos netted them a victory over the high-scoring Washington out- fit, 45-39. Trailing 29-20 at halftime, the Broncos returned to the court and started hitting from all angles. Frank Laney ' s 17 points in the second half combined with a tight defense gave the Broncos an easy victory. The Hoyas, who had previously averaged 63 points per game, were completely stalled by the Bronco defense and were able to tally only three field goals in the second half, and none in the last sixteen minutes. Frank Laney was high scorer with 22 points. After spending Christmas Day on a smoky train the Broncos moved Into Pittsburgh to meet the Iron Duke$ of Duquesne University. Duquesne has proved almost unbeatable on their Marquee ot Madison- Square Garden in New York. home court in the last decade and the night they met Santa Clara was no exception as they mauled the Broncos 56-45. The roughhouse Duquesne squad could not hit from the floor but cashed in from the free throw by converting 26 of 3 1 charity tosses. Right there was the margin of victory. The Dukes trailed for most of the first half and rallied just before the half ended to take a 24-16 lead. Thereafter they were never headed. With Dave Mariani leading the way, the Broncos pulled within two points of the Smoky City Five but never did over- take them. Mariani captured scoring honors with 16 points. From Pittsburgh the Broncos journeyed to New York to meet the City College Beavers on the hardwood of Madison Square Garden. Playing the second half of a double-header before 18,487 fans, the underdog Santa Clarans kept hot on the Beaver ' s tails until the third quarter and finally lost to the racehorse New York squad, 56-47. Again it was the Bronco penchant for fouls which was a definite factor in their defeat. To counteract the blinding speed of the City College five, the Broncos employed a slow, deliberate style of basketball. For most of the game the Beaver offense was slowed, but their speed finally proved too much for the Invading Broncos who fell apart in the third quarter. Paul Holm gets twisted around by over-eager Hoya «ll The Broncos were ofF in their shooting and had difficulty in breaking through the close guarding of the Beavers, al- though urrtil the third quarter It was a nip and tuck contest. The Beavers led 25-19 at halftime, but the Broncos closed the gap and by the beginning of the fourth quarter trailed by only two points, 37-35. Then in five minutes the fast Beaver five scored 16 points to take a commanding lead. Before the game had ended Frank Laney, Joe Greenbach, and Harvey Christensen were banished on personal fouls. Dave Mariani and Bob McKillop were the high scorers for the Broncos with twelve points each. Departing from snowbound New York and eager to gain an even split on their tour, the Broncos moved into the City of Brotherly Love New Year ' s night where they were feat- ured in the second half of a twin bill with the highly-touted Temple Owls. Again the Broncos were decided underdogs. Before a large crowd the Broncos displayed some of the most spectacular basketball of their entire campaign as they out- fought the Owls to a 64-62 victory in the waning seconds of the game. Getting set to drop one in against Georqefown is Frank Laney. The first three periods saw the Owls breezing along to an almost certain triumph with their amazing forward. Nelson Bobb, playing havoc with Bronco defenses. Only three and one-half minutes were left to play and the Broncos trailed 58 43. Then they began a blistering drive that ient the Philadelphia fans into a frenzy. In one minute Dave Mariani and Bob McKillop scored eight points. Using a very fast break the Broncos tied the score with only seconds left to play on a brilliant whirling pivot shot by Harvey Chris- tensen. Immediately following the tying tally, Bob McKillop calmly dumped one from fifteen feet out to give the Broncos a hard earned win. Nelson Bobb of Temple garnered scoring honors with 27 points, followed by Laney with 19. Bob McKillop tallied 13 and Dave Mariani 15. Winning the last two games of the three-ganne series, Ray Pesco ' s cage team managed to continue their court mastery over their arch rivals from Saint Mary ' s. On the basis of their first performance against the Gaels, at the Cow Palace, the Broncos appeared a cinch to drop the traditional series. As in their game with the Dons on th© same court the previous night, the Broncos seemed to do noth- ing right while being routed by the Gaels 47-32. With Frank Laney nursing a sprained ankle on the sidelines, Santa Clara never did start clicking as evidenced by the fact that they hit for only five field goals in the first half and seven in the second. It was simply a case of the Broncos being frigid and finding the Gael zone defense too confusing to dent. Back in their own backyard at the Civic Auditorium in San Jose, the Broncos tied up the series by handing Saint Mary ' s a 47 43 defeat. The Broncos took the lead at the outset on two long field goals by Dave Mariani and were never headed thereafter. With the amazing Gael, Frank Kudelka, hitting the hoop with precision Saint Mary ' s stayed in ' the game and trailed af halftime, 25-21. In the second half, guard Dave Mariani began dumping his long one-hand set shots and the Brorx:o$ coasted the rest of the way. Mariani headed the Bronco scoring parade with 14 points, closely followed by Bob McKillop with 12. The Gael forward was high-point man for the night with 2 (.points, rais- ing his season ' s total to an amazing 400 points. Joe Greenback, unheralded defensive whiz, was the big difference in the rubber match between the two teams. His alert guarding kept the high-scoring Kudelka tied in knots and enabled the Broncos to take a 56-53 victory. Behind 25-22 at halftime, the Broncos came back after the intermission and almost turned the game into a rout. Kudelka, who went on a scoring splurge near the end of the first half, was completely bottled in the second stanza by the ever-present Greenbach. The Gaels made a valiant effort to catch the Broncos but their tactics proved too rough and Dave Mariani bagged three free throws in the last two minutes to put the game on ice. Big Frank Laney, playing his last game for the Red and White, grabbed Bronco scoring honors with 17 points. ©a«sl defender puts nifty body block on Bob McKillop. Sunderland, cheek-to-cheek with Don, moves In for a shot. A hardwood reign that lasted for. a decade ended this year when the University of San Francisco Dons swept the annual series from the Broncos in two consecutive games. In both contests the Broncos ruled slight pre-game favorites only to be dumped by their more aggressive greenshirted foe from San Francisco. It has been a long time since any basketball team from USF captured the traditional series, especially in two contests. The first engagement of the two teams was a see-saw struggle in the spacious Cow Palace. After fighting an uphill battle all the way, the Dons surged ahead of- the Brdncos and won the game by a 52-42 score. Before the game was five minutes old it was apparent that the Broncos would have their hands full as center Frank Laney ' went up for a rebound, collided with two Dons and came crashing to the floor, twisting his ankle as he fell. Laney left the game and did not return. Only the sensational marks- manship of forward Joe Crowley kept the Broncos in the game during the first half. Crowley potted 12 points in the opening half and played an equally good defensive game. As the two teams left the floor at halftime the Broncos led 27-23. The Dons started rolling in the second half and soon the score was knotted at 35 all. Bronco chances for a victory suffered a severe setback in the second half when the sharp- shooting Crowley was forced to leave the game on personal fouls. From here on the Dons began to roll and the Broncos never threatened again. The game was a rough one with 42 personal fouls being called, 24 of them against the Dons. From where they left off in the first game, the Dons picked up again in the second encounter of the two teams at the Civic Auditorium in San Jose. USF took art early lead and whenever necessary applied pressure to win handily, 51-43. It was a poorly played game from the Bronco standpoint. Their passing was poor, rebounding ineffective and their gen- eral play erratic. Santa Clara ' s cagers were simply outplayed by their San Francisco opponents. Three quick buckets gave the Dons a 6-0 lead which they never lost. By halftime, thanks to the uncanny accuracy of center Joe McNamee, the Dons had opened the gap to 24-14. A rejuvenated Bronco team took the floor in the second half and began to play a much better brand of basketball. The Dons had too much of a lead, however, and whenever the score got close USF had enough scoring punch to stave off the Broncos. With two minutes remaining to play the score was 46-43. In their attempt to overtake the Dons, the Broncos became erratic again and the Greenshirts cashed in on this oppor- tunity to pull out in front by a more comfortable margin. Joe McNamee was high scorer for the night with 2 I points and Bronco pivotman Frank Laney was tops for Santa Clara with 14. Forward Joe Crowley dribbles around Don defend i Santa Clara ' s cagers ran against stiff opposition in their encounters with the teams of the Coast Conference, drop- ping four of their five tilts with the representatives of the Southern Division. Early in the season the Broncos battled the U.C.L.A. Bruins on successive nights and gained an even split in the series, osing the first contest, 47-42, and winning the second, 55-50. n both games the two teams were separated by a five-point margin. The first game was a rollicking, see-saw battle with the lead changing 13 times in the first 25 minutes. Every Bruin basket was matched by the Broncos until five minutes from the end when the fast-breaking Bruins, led by Dave Minor and John Stanich, put the game on Ice. Bob McKillop led the scoring parade with fourteen points. Frank Laney, held to nine points in the first game, broke loose the second night and scored 14 points, ten of them in the second half to lead the Broncos in their 55-50 win. The Bruins, still employing a wicked fast break, took a 27-20 lead at the half. In the second half while the Bruins tried to find the range, the Broncos surged past them and controlled the game until the final whistle blew. Before a record shattering crowd of 12,136 fans in the spacious San Francisco Cow Palace, the Broncos tangled with the University of California five, always a stubborn foe for the Broncos. The Bears were determined to make up for the double trimming they suffered at the hands of the Broncos the pre- vious year and early in the game moved ahead by a wide margm. Behind 33-19 in the second half, the Broncos started their familiar second half comeback. With the packed house f i it . ' . iS, 24 ..v Southern California forward sneaks by Bob for a shot. going wild, the Broncos slowly closed the gap with Bob Mc- Killop and Dave Marian! supplying the scoring punch. Joe Crowley brought the house down as he put the Broncos mo- mentarily in front, 45-46, with an arching 35-foot push shot from the sidelines. The Bronco lead was short lived as Chuck Hangar, big Cal forward, blasted Bronco hopes for a vic- tory with two quick baskets. Both teams scored once more but the game ended with Cal in front, 51 47. High-point man for Santa Clara was Bob McKillop with 14 po ' nts. Another record-breaking crowd, this time 12,204 fans, watched the Stanford Indians give the Broncos a lesson in the zone defense the following night in the Cow Palace. Stanford, out in front all night, waltzed in with an easy 53-41 victory. In comparison with the ' r previous night ' s tussle with California the Broncos looked like a different team. Santa Clara never was in the game with the alert, accurate-shoot- ing Indians and only the aggressive play of Bob McKillop, who scored 14 points, kept the score respectable. In their final tilt with Conference teams the Broncos moved South to meet the University of Southern California. As usual the Broncos trailed at the half, this time 29-25 only to bounce back on two baskets by Bob McKillop. With the score knotted, Abe Androff tipped in the winning two points in the last minute of play to give the Trojans their 54-52 win. Dave Marian! put on a dazzling display as he captured scor- ng honors with 19 points. Straining every muscle is Bob McKillop (9) as Frank Laney (II) leaps in air during UCLA qame.

Junior Varsity Basketball Santa Clara ' s yearling basketball team, under the coaching of Al Olivier, connpiled a respectable record by winning nine games while losing only five. Early in the year when it appeared that the frosh might go AL OLIVIER Coach coachless, Al Olivier, manager of the varsity, took over the coaching task and guided the young Bronco cage stars through the remainder of the year. This was the first freshman basketball team to romp over Seifert since before the war and their fine showing is a promise of things to come. Opening the season against the Fairfield Army Base the Broncs breezed to an easy 48-36 triumph. In the following contest they had even less trouble in smother- ing an Oakland Naval Hospital five, 44-26. This win streak was short lived as the Santa Clara Frosh met their first defeat at the hands of the powerful Lincoln High quintet from San Francisco. Then came a defeat by Salinas Junior College, 68-52. The Bronco frosh suffered the same fate as the varsity In the annual U.S.F. series. The Don freshmen swept the series by winning the first two encounters. In the second game of the series the Broncos dropped a hard fought 52-47 decision in probably what was their best 124 performance of the year. In the initial game U.S.F. romped to an easy 66-44 win. Again emulating the varsity, the frosh copped the series from the Saint Mary ' s Gaels. It took only two games for the frosh to take their series, while the varsity, however, was forced to go the limit before winning. The score of the first match was 56-51. The second and final game of the series was played in Vallejo and the Broncos repeated themselves by winning to the tune of 52-48. The fast breaking freshmen finished the season with a flurry of victories, notching five consecutive wins and eight of their last ten games. Standout of the freshman squad was big, strong Don Mount from Mount Carmel High School, Los Angeles. Mount led his mates in scoring by racking up 210 points for an excellent 15 point average. Mount also did yeo- man service under the boards where he grabbed most of the rebounds. Following Mount in the scoring parade was Ray Castro with I 73 points. Diminutive Jack Put- ney, captain of the frosh, performed ably all season as a playmaker and scoring threat. Joe Gisler, Frank Lico, Jim Vaudagna, Ed Berger, Curt Forsman, Ronald San- tucci, Norman Lien, Michael Styer, Bruno Filice, and John Bowden, and Ray Schwarz composed the remainder of the team.

Diamond Dust S anta Clara ' s baseball team has nowhere fo go but up this year and Coach Patty Cottrell is optinnistic of the Broncos chances of moving to the top of the Cali- fornia Intercollegiate Baseball Association. With an ex- tremely young and inexperienced team last year, the Broncos tumbled to the league cellar, principally be- cause of inadequate pitching strength. Pitching this year is more promising. With lanky Galen Norquist rounding into early form the question of the number one flinger is decided. Backing the angular Boise, Idaho, tosser is a quartet of promising hurlers, headed by Dave Smith, crafty righthander from Sacra- mento Junior College. Behind these two are Don Keith, Tom Byrd, lefthander Hal Toso, and Doug Peterson, a southpaw with a nifty curve and fast ball. If Pet erson masters his wildness he will win many games for Cottrell ' s charges. Keith moves up from the 1947 Bronco frosh and like Byrd is a righthander. Offensively the Broncos should be improved this cam- paign. They have more right and left handed balance and what is more important, more experience. The Broncos are still a young ball club being composed of one senior, three juniors and the remainder sophomores. Santa Clara may very well have the best infield in Jim Mangan chases foul fly. Coach Patty Cottrell. Double trouble, Hal and Harvey Toso. the league with Harvey Christensen, and shortstop Har- vey Toso, all-Conference infielders leading the way. The ambidexterous Christensen is covering first base and Bob Ferarri presently stationed at third. Rounding out the infield is newcomer Bob Nard who has per- formed very well in early season contests at the key- stone corner. Hal Toso also fills in at first. The outer garden finds a trio of seasoned veterans headed by the aggressive Bill Prentice, captain of the present Bronco squad. Other outfielders are long Tom Kelly, Chuck Bedolla, Joe Dunlap, Pete Fitzpatrick, and Bill Renna. Renna made Bronco observers stand up and take notice by belting a prodigious homerun wallop over the centerfield fence in his first appearance at the plate in the season ' s opener against Saint Mary ' s. Catching is one of the Bronco ' s strongest depart- ments with Jim Mangan holding down the number one berth. Sharing the work behind the plate with Mangan is John Schirle and Dan Buckley. With greater pitching strength and stronger hitting the Broncos appear to be ready to climb from the league cellar. Bob Nard rounds first after smacking a line single to centerfield. LOSE TO GAELS, 3-2 A fhree-run uprising in the eighth inning by the Saint Mary ' s Gaels gave them a 3-2 victory over the Broncos in Santa Clara ' s first ganne on the California Intercollegiate Baseball Association schedule. Lanky Galen Norquist was coasting along behind a two- run lead in the eighth inning when he suddenly lost his effec- tiveness. He got hinnself into trouble by giving free passes to Jack Buick, Gene McGowan, and Dan Galvin. Bill VanHeuitt then hoisted a long fly to the outfield, scoring the first Gael run. A single by Bill Brown scored Buick to tie up the ba game. The clincher came when Dwayne Cling blasted out the third hit of the Inning, driving in the winning run. Santa Clara came fighting back in their half of the ninth and loaded the bases. The threat was ended with Bob Ferrari tapping back to the box. Big Bill Renna blasts a home run deep over center field wall. In the second inning the Broncos scored their only two runs off Gael pitcher Canfield when Bill Renna powdered a tre- mendous 400-foot home run over the centerfield fence. Har- vey Christensen, who had walked, scored in front of Renna. Until he ran into control trouble in the eighth inning, Nor- quist had the Gaels completely handcuffed, fanning ten and allowing only four scattered hits. The Broncos collected five hits and Saint Mary ' s banged out seven. Patty Cottrell, second from left, talks with, left o right, Harvey Toso, Bill Prentice, Harvey Christensen. CLAW TIGERS, 5-4 Paced by the thunderous bat of leftflelder Tom Kelly, the Broncos registered a 5-4 win over the College of the Pacific Tigers at Washington Park in Santa Clara. Kelly tallied four runs with two pokes over the right center- field fence in the third and sixth innings. In the third inning with mates Harvey Toso and Harvey Christensen on the base- paths Kelly unloaded for his first circuit clout. Again in his next appearance at the bat, in the sixth inning, Kelly picked out the pitch he wanted and sent the ball sailing high over the right field barrier. This time there was no one on base. Tom Kally crosses plata after hitting his first of two circuit clouts. - t % i . ••■4 The Bronco hurling job was shared by Galen Norquist and Hal Toso, who came to the mound in the sixth inning. Norquist whiffed five batsmen in the five innings he worked and allowed one run. Toso ran into difficulty in the top of the ninth when the Tigers threatened to send the ball game into extra innings. Sonny Adkins singled for the Tigers, then Eddie LeBaron, of football fame, drew a base on balls. With two out, Jim Tor- vik stepped to the plate and slammed the ball out of the park, sending the score to 5-4. Toso then made a fine stop of a line drive that was drilled straight at him, knocking the ball down and then tossing to Christensen to end the ball game and give the Broncos their win. The Broncos had a good day at the bat, slamming out eleven bingles. COP managed to get eight hits and picked up six free passes, three each from Norquist and Toso.

A trio of Bronco hurlers pitched good ball and allowed only four hits and only two out of the infield, but the Indians bunched these hits and took advantage of Bronco miscues. Dave Stott, Stanford pitcher, was hit hard in allowing nine scattered base blows and only the sensational fly chasing of a little outfielder by the name of Ted Nell kept the Indian hurler from being sent to the showers. Captain Bill Prentice, leading off in the first frame, greeted Stott by slashing a lusty triple deep into center field. Harvey Christensen scored Prentice with a sharp single into right field. In the fifth inning Mangan beat out a bunt and con- tinued to second on a bad throw and scurried home when Prentice connected for his second hit. The final Bronco run was scored on singles by Prentice, Toso, an intentional pass to Christensen and a long fly by Bill Renna. Lanky Galen Norqu!sf lets loose with a Stanford scored two in the third and two in the fourth. Stott started them off by getting an infield single. Norquist then walked two Indians to load the bags. A single, then an error, by Bob Nard gave the Indians their two runs. The next inning Norquist hit the first batter to face him and then got all tangled fielding a bunt to put two men on. A sacrifice fol- lowed by a ringing single gave the Indians two more tallies. Dave Smith and Hal Toso did good jobs in their relief roles. Bob Ferrari played sparkling ball at third and Bill Pren- tice led the hitting parade. WHIP BEARS, 5-2 Behind the superb pitching of lefthander Harold Toso, the Bronco baseballers racked up their first league victory by trouncing the University of California, 5-2, at Washington Park. Clint Evans, Bear coach, used four pitchers in an attempt to halt the Bronco attack. Santa Clara opened up on Bear starter, Nino Barnise, in the first frame and scored two runs on a single by Bill Prentice and a four-master by Harvey Christensen. Then in the third inning the Broncos began pick- ing away ai Barnise ' s fast ball again and dented the plate twice more on a single by Harvey Toso, a slashing double by Chuck Bedolla and a single by Tom Kelly down the right field line. First sacker Christensen opened up the eighth inning with a booming double and eventually scored on two infield outs. Toso was master of the situation all day on the mound. In the final frames he slowed up somewhat but always had enough on the ball to keep the National Champion Bears from mustering a threat. He allowed only six scattered hits and was backed up by some sparkling fielding, especially by third baseman Bob Ferarri, who handled the ball twelve time without a miscue. Harvey Christensen reached base four times and was the leading batsman with a double and a homerun. Bedolla and Kelly each chipped in with two hits apiece, while the Broncos collected nine altogether. 4Ct FRESHMAN HORSEHIDERS— Smith, Absey, Berberet, Roche, Myatt, Harrington, Lico, Bartholemy, Patterson, Bolton, Freiermuth, Filice, Villano, Moran, Fornnico. Freshman Basesali The Santa Clara frosh baseballers, with the heaviest portion of their schedule yet to come, are presently sporting a .500 average. The yearling baseballers grabbed two wins while losing the sanne number. As the season progresses it becomes evident that the sturdy right arm flinger Barth Bartholemy and the booming bat of Lou Berberet will spell many afternoons of misery for opposing pitchers. In the season ' s opener against Sequoia High School the frosh pounded out eleven hits, two of which were circuit clouts by the stocky catcher, Berberet, to beat the high school boys, 6-4. Four of these six runs were driven in by Berberet. Lico, Myatt and Patterson chipped in with two hits each while pitcher Gene Dykes was holding the Sequoia outfit in check except for a three-run uprising in the third inning. Game number two saw the Broncos have a field day at the expense of the St. Ignatius High School nine. The Broncos dented the plate 24 times and amassed a total of 20 base blows. Flinger Barth Bartholemy had little trouble in limiting the Wildcats to three runs on three hits. Against their first collegiate competition the Broncos tangled with Stockton Junior College. Barth Bartholemy hooked up in a 13 inning pitching duel with Veto Rami- rez and was outlasted by the Stockton hurler. In the first 134 half of the fhir+eenth Stockton collected two hits to push across the tie-breaking and winning run. Bartholemy toiled all thirteen innings and paced himself well in al- lowing nine hits. The Broncos found Ramirez stingy with hits and were able to get only four. They scored their lone run in the fourth inning. Going into the last half of the eighth inning in the game against the Stanford Frosh the Broncos were lead- ing 4-3. A walk, an error and a two-base hit by Stanford put the ball game on ice for the Indians, who won, 5-4. Santa Clara scored three times in the fifth inning and once in the sixth to give them their four runs. Bruno Filice led the hitting parade with three singles in four trips to the plate. The Broncos outhit the Indians seven to five, but the Indians permitted five miscues in the field to the Bronco ' s four. Barth Bartholemy was th« losing pitcher. In addition to Berberet and Bartholemy, frosh who will bear watching in the future, are shortstop Buzz Har- rington and Fred Myatt, who holds down the hot corner. Lou Berberet fouls one off in game against Stanford.

Twenty con- tests have been scheduled with all of the colleges in the Bay Area. Amiable Dick Schmidt is again tutoring the net squad. Holding down the number one slot again this year is Al Martin, compact all-round athlete. Playing in the number one spot Martin has won three matches while losing two. He is an aggressive, steady performer with a big service. Right on the heels of Martin is tall, slim Roy Oalces. Oalces is an accomplished player with a great deal of poise and finesse. Currently holding down the number three position is Steve Herle who teams up with Oakes to form a smooth working doubles combina- tion. Number four is Glenn Harris who employs a stra- tegic soft type of shot to the dismay of the opposition. The remainder of the team is composed of Tom Burns, ROY OAKES STEVE HERLE AL MARTIN George Grenfell, Bob McKillop, and Jack Smith. Smith is the most consistent winner on the squad and has com- piled an enviable record in two seasons of play. In the first match of the season Santa Clara took a 6-4 decision from San Mateo Junior College. Al Martin was thumped by Sample 6-2, 6-3. In the number two match Roy Oaks defeated Soerenson, 6-2, 6-4. Steve Herle, Jack Smith, and George Grenfell turned in fine performances to rack up victories in the singles. The doubles teams of Al Martin, Glenn Harris, and Tom Burns and Jack Smith, also turned in victories to give the Broncos their six victories. Early in March the Bronco netmen engaged San Fran- cisco City College and romped to an easy 9-0 victory. Santa Clara dropped only three sets all day to the Rams who were very much outclassed. Martin, Oakes, Herle, Harris, Burns, Smith, Grenfell and Dean Snyder were the netmen who were victors. In a complete reversal of form Santa Clara was sub- dued by the powerful net club from Stanford, 8 matches to I. Jack Smith, playing in the number six position, gained the lone Bronco win by whipping his opponent, 1-6, 6-4, 6-2. Steve Herle put up the most stubborn fight of the afternoon before finally falling by the close scores of 5-7, I 1-9, 6-3. Herle weakened somewhat in the final set and this cost him the match. Stanford swept all three doubles matches. Against Menio Junior College the Broncos had little difficulty piling up six match victories to one for Menlo. Martin, Harris, Smith, Grenfell, in the singles, and the doubles teams of Herle-Oakes and Martin-Burns racked up victories. Continuing their winning ways, the next match saw the Santa Clara team score a 7-2 win over the visiting team from California Poly. The Broncos took five of six singles matches and one of the two doubles contests. Number one player, Al Martin, took his match 6-4, 6-3. Al Martin slams one. Steve Herle serves.

Boxing a VVrsstlihg Paced by slugging heavyweight, Jim Buckley, the Santa Clara boxing team has won one match while tying in another during the past season. In a wild and woolly match the Bronco boxing and wrestling team settled for a tie with Salinas Junior College in Seifert Gymnasium. Gaeton DeMattei supplied the highlight of that contest by winning a bruising contest In the 155-pound class. Buckley took his bout by forfeit. In the only wrestling match on the program, John Hock de- feated Frank Cortez 6-0. In a match with the San Francisco City College team the Broncos disposed of the Rams by the score of 5I 2 to 3 1 2. Bronco winners were Billy Sullivan, who fought In the 145-pound class, Tom Mclnerney, 145, Paul Conn, 175, and Jim Buckley, again a winner by forfeit. Santa Clara sent a single entrant, Jim Buckley, to the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate championships in Sacramento. Buckley dropped a decision by the closest of mar gins, one point, to Don Pein from Washington. Pein then went on to win the heavyweight title, in rather easy fashion. Buckley, while In excellent shape, was handicapped by a lack of opponents to keep him In fighting trim. Bronco boxers are coached by the former professional star, Joe Rogers. Wrestling Coach Sam Delia Maggiore has one top-notch pupil in the muscular John Hock. Hock took third place in the Far Western Intercollegiate Championships. Only a sophomore. Hock is pointing for the heavyweight crown next year. GOLFERS— STANDING, left to right: Wehner, Bet+inger, Fry, Roche, Waters. Kennedy, Sanders. KNEELING: PaHen, Vadnais, Reilly, Keith. GOIF Picking up where they left off last year, Santa Clara ' s golfers have added two more victories to their long string of triumphs. During 1946-47 the golf t eam attained the distinction of going through their schedule undefeated. A more strenuous schedule this year, including 20 matches with Bay Area colleges, will give the Bronco golfers an opportunity to gain more notoriety. Heading the golf team is Carl Lozito, who shoots in the low 70 ' s consistently. Lozito, who hails from Rhode Island, has a long string of match play victories to his credit. He carded a two over par score in the Northern California Intercollegiate Tournament held at Pasatiempo Golf Course in Santa Cruz. Close behind Lozito are Phil Griffin, Mel Reilly, Tom Wehner, Dick Fitz Maurice, Dick Kennedy, John Coughlan, and John Kilty. The Bronco golfers have defeated San Francisco City College in a close match, and trampled Menio Junior College. Santa Clara ' s golfers are pointing to the National Intercollegiate Championships which will be held at Stanford.

Last year, under the direction of Henry Schmidt, the track team was unofficially organized. Early this year, however, track received the green light with the appointment of Ben Eastman, former Stanford record holder, as head coach of the cindermen. Assisting Eastman were Henry Schmidt and Mike Kiely, Notre Dame star of a few years back. The scene of the Broncos first test was Ryan Field where a triangular meet was held with Santa Clara, San Francisco City College and Menio Junior College compet- ing. In this, their first meet in thirty years, Santa Clara made a commendable show- ing, finishing second in the scoring.

A single tie spoiled the Foulers ' chances of completing the season with a spotless record. It was the accurate passlhg of Pat Walsh, the tricky, hard running of Joe Nally, the sensational pass catching of Dan Kraemer and a well balanced attack that made the Foulers such a tough combination to handle. Twenty teams, ten In the National League, and ten In the American League, vied for championship honors from the beginning of October until the end of November. In the National League the Bergin Bombers and the Galloping Ghouls each ended the season with eight victories and a single loss. A special playoff saw the Bombers ease past the Ghouls and earn the right to meet the Foulers who were closely pressed In the American League by the Dinjas who recorded ten victories and tasted defeat once. Late in November the championship contest was held between the Bergin Bombers and the Foulers on the turf of Ryan Field. Pat Walsh connected for three touchdown passes, two to Dan Kraemer and one to fleet Joe Nally to give the Fouler ' s their hard earned 25-20 victory. Members of the champion Foulers are: Pat Walsh, Joe Nally, Dan Kraemer, Frank Laney, Harvey Christensen, Pete Fitzpatrick, Jim Mangan, and Bob FInnochio. ISO Tehmis Breezing through the opposition with ease, defending champion Al Martin moved to his second successive tennis championship. In a field of 32 contestants, Martin was far and away the most outstanding participant. Martin ' s victory gave the San Rafael star the number one spot on the university tennis ladder. In waltzing to the title Martin did not drop a single set. The final and championship match was between Martin and Roy Oakes, the same two who reached the finals in last year ' s competition. Martin had little difficulty in disposing of Oakes in two sets, 6-3, 6-2. Excellent placement shots, booming overhead drives and the usual fine service of Martin proved too much for Oakes, who reached the final round by defeating Steve Herle. The doubles saw another repeat performance as defending champions Al Martin and Bob McKillop defeated Roy Oakes and Steve Herle In a very close match. Oakes and Herle appeared well on their way to victory as they captured the first two sets 6-2, 7-5. Shaking the shackles of almost certain defeat, Martin and McKillop put on a sustained drive and swept the next three sets, 6-1, 6-2, and 6-4. The winners had great difficulty in breaking through the service of Steve Herle, who played stellar tennis throughout the tournament. NUMBER ONE MAN — A!

More than fifteen singles and seven doubles matches have been scheduled. The tournament is being conducted by Dick Smith on the ladder system. Two defeats eliminate a contest- ant from the tournament. In the most outstanding singles match played to date, Bill McMillan defeated the highly regarded freshman, Ed Miller. McMillan dropped the first game 17-21 but came back to thoroughly trounce Miller in the second game by the score of 2 I -7. The final game saw McMillan whip Miller 21-16. Basketball 152 Twenty-six teams in four leagues are vieing for cham- pionship honors in a hotly contested basketball intra- mural tournament. The teams are divided into four leagues: International League, National League, Ameri- can League, and the Coast League. Early tournament games, while showing nothing certain, make it evident that the championship will be a tossup between any of the nine teams. In the International League the Browns and the Green Kids are the pacesetters and should gain a berth in the finals. The American League is the scene of some close competition with the Domesticated Devils, married stu- dents, surprising most of the opposition. Paul Laxalt and Bob Greene of the Devils are among the high scorers in the league. Close behind the Devils are the Cap ' n Jacks and the Slop Shots. Captain Ed Regan and his Regans in the National League appear to be of championship caliber. The scor- ing duo of Tom Guerin and Frank Faraone is running wild and represents a terrific scoring punch. The only serious threat to the Regans in the National League will come from the Styers. The Coast League also has two outstanding teams In the Ravens and the Multiplicity of Forms.

MASTRANGELO Editor-in-chief REDWOOD STAFF Nineteen forty-eight almost saw the end of a tradition, as far as the Santa Clara REDWOOD was concerned. Several frantic drives on the part of the business managers of the yearbook were undertaken before the necessary funds were raised in order to insure publication. As late as the end of February, the situation was still considered " doubtful. " But due to the redoubled efforts of Business Manager Joseph E. Darrow, his assistants, John S. Mclnerney and Fred A. Lice, and their staffs, the annual was published. Other than financial difficulties, there were no obstacles in the path of Editor-in-Chief Tally P. Mastrangelo and his assistants. Mas- trangelo ' s untiring efforts for the goal he chose: " The best REDWOOD ever, " were matchless. The work of Photographic Editor Robert F. Infeiise and his assistant, John E. Turco, always tedious and costly in hours, was handled with ability and dispatch. The job of convocating the members of the various organizations on campus, one of the major chores of a year- book photographic editor, was outstandingly done by Infeiise and Turco. The sparkling athletic pictures, as well as action pictures of the several aspects of collegiate life, are all the work of Turco and his talented lens. Responsible for every story that is in this year ' s annual was Literary Editor George E. Murphy. Formerly sports editor of " The Santa Clara, " and editor of several Army newspapers while in the service, Murphy ' s skill and experience were invaluable to the REDWOOD, and were only matched by his selfless efforts. John J. Faber and James C. O ' Neill acted as Murphy ' s assistants, and rendered much aid by their catholic knowledge of all campus activities. The athletic section of any annual is one of the first parts to be read. That it is so well done in this year ' s REDWOOD is a tribute to the work of Sports Editor David E. Bacigalupo. The former editor of " The Santa Clara " lent his time and talents unselfishly to the demands of the yearbook, and that they were not fruitless is shown by the layout and stories in the sports pages.

INFELISE Photographic Editor The thanks of the entire REDWOOD staff go to the members of the yearbook de- partment of the California Art and Engraving Company, who are responsible for the fine typography in this book. Their comments and advice were always welcomed by the staff, and made for a better annual through cooperation. Their experience with annuals in the past years has made the publication of the 1 948 REDWOOD a very pleasant vask. Faculty moderator for the 1948 REDWOOD was Rev. Edward M. Stretch, S.J., Vice-President of the University. 158 JAMES D. CANTY Editor, Spring Semester News Editor, Fall Semester JOHN J. FABER Editor, Fall Semester Th£ ' ' Santa Clara 1 The leading publication of the University of Santa Clara, the connecting link be- tween the active alumni and the Mission campus, is the weekly " Santa Clara " newspaper. This year ' s calendar of school activities calls for a minimum of twenty-five issues of the " Santa Clara. " To accomplish this task, Editor-in-Chief John J. Faber, junior artsman with a career in the legal profession in mind, looks to the sophomore and freshman classes for men and materials. Most consistant workman on the " Santa Clara " staff is Sophomore Donald Canty. This eighteen-year-old philosophy major is responsible for the news content of the publication, and for the training of freshmen news writers. Canty and Faber determine the policies of the " Santa Clara, " and assemble materials for publication. The life blood of the " Santa Clara, " its advertising and subscription interests, is in the hands of Junior James Bowe, and his sophomore assistant, Robert Boscacci. Bowe points to three years ' experience as financial manager of the " Santa Clara, " and io the fact that under his supervision the paper has moved out of the debtor class. Circu- lation chores are handled by Horace Maggetti, his chief associates, Edward Lafranchi and Robert Kenealy, and a staff of competent freshmen. THOMAS McCarthy Feature Editor CLIFFORD S. BETTINGER Assistant Feature Editor JOHN F. BENNETT Staff Cartoonist y . Assisting Faber and Canty in the editorial make-up of the " Santa Clara " this year were Thonnas McCarthy, feature editor, and Arthur Johnson and Cliff Bettinger, sports editors. Outstanding feature contributions were made by James C. O ' Neill, John Banister, George Murphy, Walter Hirth, and Robert Prentice. Sports stories were handled by George Nichols, Donald Briggs, Thomas Mullan, Jr., and Angelo Siracusa. Chief associate to Canty on the front page was Sophomore Robert Shindler. News writers included Freshmen Joseph Borges, Donald Bridgehouse, Earl Carpenter, Robert Maloney, and Samuel Winklebleck; while sophomore newsmen were James Binckley, Thomas Conn, Leighton Hatch, Patrick Hanratty, and William Macomber. Heading the art department was Junior John Bennett; working with him were An- thony Cristallo, Thomas Kaney, and George Faugsted. Russell O ' Brien and John Turco handled " Santa Clara " photography. With such a complete and stable staff, the " Santa Clara " has experienced a truly noteworthy year. The eager interest of all concerned, and the leadership and imagi- nation shown by each editor in developing the talent placed in his hands may be visibly evidenced in each edition of the 1947-48 All-Amerlcan " Santa Clara.

McCORMICK Editorial Assistant WILLIAM T. McDonald Editorial Assistant PHILIP A. PATTON Editorial Assistant Long recognized as the literary voice of the campus, the monthly " Owl " enjoyed one of its finest years during the past school term. Headed by Alfred O. Kelly, as editor, and Paul McCormick, William McDonald and Philip Patton as assistant editors, " The Owl " maintained a high standard of literary quality throughout Its nine Issues. Three special Issues particularly marked the 1947-48 " Owl. " The first was an all- fiction Issue early In the fall semester. A Christmas Issue featured poems and stories In keeping with the seasonal spirit. In the spring semester, the magazine featured short stories by outstanding student contributors. Much of the credit for " The Owl ' s " continued success Is due to the efforts of its moderator. Rev. Edward Shipsey, S.J., chairman of the English department. For many years Father Shipsey ' s guidance has been an essential feature of the literary monthly. Introduced in the spring semester were wood " cuts, " small representations of various scenes and activities, which were placed in the several columns of the magazine, in order to make the page more readable, and present a better makeup to the student reader. To the embryo writer, " The Owl " signifies collegiate acceptance of his efforts. As " The Owl " this year enjoyed the greatest circulation in its history, the students ' literary works reached a greater reading public than that of any other year. 160 RELIGIOUS SOCIETIES BACK ROW, left to right: Maxfield J.

Th£ Sanctuary Society In accordance with the general trend of organizations on the cannpus, the Saint John Berchnnans ' Sanctuary Society has, during the past school year, fully attained its prewar status. By nnid-year the Society had attained its full quota of forty members, a sharp contrast to the mere handful who were present during the lean war years. On December 3, thirteen new candidates were inducted by Father President, although many more had submitted their applications for membership. Many of those who were not inducted are still listed as available for acolyte duty. The rejuvenated Society was directed, this year, by a group of very capable leaders. Among the routine organizational duties, the officers were also expected to appoint servers and to make sure that they appeared at the various altars and at the Masses assigned. James Bowe, whose two previous years in the Society gave him a wealth of experience, was elected Prefect. He was assisted by Vice-Prefect James Arbios, and Secretary Donald Sullivan. Rev. Timothy P. Fallon, S.J., guided the Society as moderator. Although the requirements for entrance Into the Saint John Berch- mans ' Society may appear rather extreme, they are set down for JAMES F. BOWE Prefect 162 one express purpose. This purpose is to make the Sanctuary Society the honor extracurricular group on the campus. Furthermore, the nature of the duties of the organization makes the imposition of severe re- quirements fully justified. The prime purpose of the Sanctuary Society Is to provide servers to assist at the Holy Sacrific e of the Mass. This Is the highest spiritual exercise which can be performed by the layman. It Is only by privilege that men not in minor orders are allowed to serve the priest at the altar. Historically this office was reserved for those who had been ordained Acolytes. Since the duties of the Society are of such a sacred nature, it follows that the members should be required to prove their fidelity and devotion to the Mass, and a rigid process of selecting candidates be followed. The list of candidates is surveyed by the Dean of Studies to verify that each has maintained an adequate average In scholastic work. Then the Director of Discipline Is given the list to determine whether or not each candidate is sufficiently qualified with reference to matters of conduct. A final survey Is made by Father President with respect to the character of aspiring candidates. A necessary prerequisite for all accepted candidates Is that they shall have served for one school year at the side altars and the early Masses. The right to serve on the Main Altar of the Mission Church Is strictly reserved for duly installed members. After a member Is accepted by the Society, he is also a member of the Catholic Activ- ities Group. JAMES B. ARBIOS Vice-Prefect DONALD E. SULLIVAN Secretary BACK ROW, left to right: James B.

SUNDERLAND Secretary The SoDAirrY One of the outstanding cannpus organizations this year was the Sodality of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Saint Clare, which was first organized on the campus September 20, 1859. The Sodality is, therefore, one member of a chain of some sixty thousand Sodality units throughout the world. The Sodality movement is a papally approved Catholic Action organization which was first established by the Society of Jesus and has flourished for over four hundred years. The members of the Sodality elected as their prefect for the school year James E. Hanses. Edward V. Warren, S.J., was appointed as moderator, and Rev. Patrick J. Carroll, S.J., was the director. The purpose of the group is stated as the wish to form spiritual leaders by means of practical imitation of the virtues shown by Our Lady, Queen of the Apostles. A leader is a man who influences at least one person to imitate Jesus and Mary in his daily life. Ultimately, however, the Sodality intends to train men who will be promoters and organizers of Catholic Action in the parishes to which they will return after their university years. All the members of the Sodality were required to attend the gen- eral meetings held every two weeks in Seifert Lounge. At these meet- J ' m r. :hols, John S. Mclnerny, William F. Donnelly, John A.

Moreover, practices were held for the Dialog Mass, which the group, led by John A. Zvone, introduced to the campus. All group members attended General Communion in the Mission Church on the second Friday of each month. At one meeting each week, five individual " cells " functioned as separate units. The Encyclical Cell, under the direction of Rev. Joseph J. Pociask, S.J., made a detailed study of Pope Pius Xl ' s encyclical on Christian Marriage. Timothy P. Fallon, S.J., guided the Liturgy Cell In its exami- nation of the relations between the doctrine of the Mystical Body and the external worship of the Church. The Manresa Cell, named after the place in Spain where Saint Ignatius resided for several years, directed by Edward V. Warren, S.J., studied the text of the Saint Ignatius ' retreat manual, " The Spiritual Exercises. " Rev. Patrick J. Carroll, S.J., and Leo Smith managed the Mission Cell. This unit collected money for the many foreign missions and also taught catechism on Wednesday afternoons to grammar school stu- dents who met at the Sodality Hall during their released time. The Saint John Berchman ' s Sanctuary Society was the fifth, and most numerous In members, of all the cells. It functioned independently of the Sodality, although all of its members were required to be active participants In the group ' s meetings and activities. DONALD J.

This talented group of students has, throughout the past school year, faithfully accompanied the Students ' Mass with appropriate religious nnusic. Under the direction of Professor Clemens Van Pere, director of music at the university, the choir has been an instrumental aid for both priests and students during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Dominic Torcasso, organist, performed faithful service at all the religious functions requiring the presence of the whole choir, or merely the organ music itself. Of special note are the services rendered by Robert S. Dougherty, basso, whose graduation this year marked the close of four years of ardent and talented service to the choir, and thus to the school. In addition to singing at the regular Student Mas ses, the choir participated in the various solemn religious services during the annual student retreat, during Lent and on Charter Day. 166 ACAXDEMic soaniEs susiness Administration Association DAVID E.

Formal education, according to the courses prescribed and authorized by Charles J. Dirksen, Dean of the College of Business Administration, accomplishes the initial objective. Lectures by prominent speakers, proficient in every phase of business enter- prise, and chapel talks by the student counselor and other priests of the faculty acquaint business students with contemporary economic and social problems. The 1947-48 school year was a challenge to the society. The 1946-47 school year had seen the B.A.A. set a new mark in rejuvenation and it was up to this year ' s society not to let that mark drop. That the challenge was taken up is attested by the various activities of the organization and the generous coo[ eration of its members through- out the past year. Officers elected at the conclusion of the 1947 spring semester were David Baci- galupo, president; Marshall Moran, vice-president; Robert McFarland, secretary; Alex Rodriguez, treasurer, and Frank Laney, sergeant-at-arms. MARSHALL F. MORAN Vice-President ROBERT J. McFARLAND Secretary FRANCIS J. DONOVAN, JR. Ireasurer FRANK A. LANEY Sergeant-at-Arms BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION ASSOCIATION The total membership was well over the three hundred mark at mid-year, an increase of some nineteen per cent over last year at the same time. The traditional informal dance following the Santa Clara-Stanford football game was held at the Fairmont Hotel, in San Francisco. Over three hundred and fifty couples attended, pronouncing the affair a social success. The spring semester found the B.A.A. on their annual picnic, which included swim- ming, Softball and a barbeque. Athletic contests between faculty members and stu- dents highlighted the afternoon ' s festivities. Among the many guest speakers, whose lectures were sponsored by the Association, was Mr. Charles Scully, San Francisco attorney for the American Federation of Labor, who delivered a timely paper concerning the present problems of labor and labor unions in the business world. The pictorial news agency, " The March of Time, " presented an interesting film to the Association, dealing with the problems and methods of proper Investment. Mr. David Malthrop of the New York office of the National Association of Manu- facturers spoke to the Association on the topic " Industry ' s Answer to the Guaranteed Annual Wage. " Business students also gave lectures on timely topics from papers which they them- selves prepared. A one-day business conference with a San Francisco Industrial board, composed of leading men in all phases of modern business was held, with the visitors answering questions and con- ducting panel discussions. Intelligence and activity were the bywords of the Business Administration Association for the past year. The challenge of unprecedented num- bers and many difficulties was met effectively by the energy and Ingenuity of its members, under the guidance of its capable leaders.

HOCK President The Engineering Society this year proved to be one of the largest and hardest- working organizations on the campus. The function of the society is threefold: to ac- quaint engineering students with the various phases of their chosen profession by nneans of lectures given by men prominent in the several fields of engineering, faculty, and student members; to afford the engineering students the opportunity of viewing engi- neering practice through field trips, and to promote social activities within the organi- zation. The first important function of the society, in the eyes of the student body, was the building of the traditional bonfire for the Saint Mary ' s-Santa Clara football game. Under the general direction of Alfonso Callejas, the fifty-foot pyre was under con- struction for the week previous to the game. Gene Campi was in charge of the actual construction work, while Dave Fraser was appointed the task of gathering all the materials, which consisted mostly of railroad ties. Fifteen hundred people watched the flames soar some hundred and fifty feet into the autumn night, a fitting culmination and tribute to the first function of the Engineer- ing Society for the school year. The society, the membership of which is well over the two hundred and fifty mark, was ably headed by a group of picked leaders. Raymond A. Hock was elected president at the first meeting, and was aided throughout the school year by Robert Dougherty, as vice-president; Peter Engh, as secretary; Thomas Griffin, treasurer, and Walter Hirth sergeant-at-arms.

The social affair took place January 10, at the Colonial Italian Room of the Hotel St. Francis, in San Francisco. Three hundred and fifty couples danced to the music of Phil Bovero and his orchestra. Precedent was shattered when Jack Smith and Henry Miller, co-chairmen for the dance announced that the dress would be informal. For many years in the past, the dance has been semiformal or formal. The reason for the change was the Saint Mary ' s-Santa Clara basketball game held earlier that night. The dress w as made informal in order to allow the students to attend the game. In its second year of publication, the " Bronco Tech News " kept the members of the Society abreast of current happenings, and plans for future events. Jack Smith acted as editor-in-chief for the three-page, mimeographed paper, with able assistance from Philip Gallagher and John Conrado as associate editors. Dante Falcioni was in charge of the actual print- ing and distribution. The paper was published bi- weekly throughout the school year. ENGINEERINGS LABS Members of the society were loud in their praise of Professor Davis Hutchinson, who acted as moderator, and Dean George L. Sullivan, whose assistance in planning the functions of the society was invaluable. The annual banquet was held late in the spring semester, at which time the traditional keys of the society were given to each senior engineering student by Dean Sullivan. JOSEPH J. SCARONI President RICHARD E.SMITH Vice-President EDWIN J.ANDERSON Secretary-Treasurer A. I E. E. The Santa Clara Branch of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers this year became one of the most active organizations on the campus. Under leadership of its able officers, the society sponsored several field trips, lectures by guest speakers, demonstrations and motion pictures. In the selection of officers, the students of electrical engineering chose Joseph Scaroni as chairman, and to assist him, they selected Richard Smith as vice-chairman, and Edward Anderson as secretary-treasurer. Doctor William J. Warren was appointed moderator of the group. Field trips for the society included visits to Jennings Radio, San Jose, and the Permanente Cement Corporation. Among their many guest speakers, the society was privileged to hear lec- tures by Mr. George Hulstede, of the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Com- pany, who gave a speech of welcome to the new members early in the semester, and Mr. Lawrence Perachini of the Weston Electrical Instrument Corporation, who spoke on " Electrical Measuring Instruments. " Noble Hancock represented the university in the section meeting of the AJ.E.E. in San Francisco, and Chairman Scaroni read a paper at the Pacific General meeting of the Institute in San Diego, several days before the opening of the fall semester. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS I S " " AV S. M. E. The 1947-48 school year has proven to be a full one for the Mechanical Engineering Society. Under the chairnnanship of Robert Dougherty, the group sponsored several field trips, annong them visits to the Sunnyvale plant of the Westinghouse Corporation, and the Pabco Research Laboratories in Oakland. With Professor Harold Hayes as moderator, the Mechanical Engineering students chose, besides Dougherty, Dante Falcioni as vice-chairman, William Cuneo as secretary, and Matthew Campbell, treasurer. The group held bi-monthly meetings during the year, which were high- lighted with prominent guest speakers, student speakers, demonstrations and motion pictures. Outstanding among the lectures given before the society this year was the speech of Mr. George Gayer, chief engineer of the Westinghouse West Coast Laboratories, who delivered a paper on gas turbines. The Santa Clara branch of the A.S.M.E. is affiliated with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the members attended several of the society ' s general meetings held in San Francisco.

Outstanding for its representation at the general nneetings of the Anner- ican Society of Civil Engineers, the Santa Clara branch of the A.S.C.E. brought credit not only to itself, but also to the entire university during the past school year. Purpose of the society is to offer to the civil engineering student an oppor- tunity to meet with other students, exchange ideas, and profit from the lec- tures given by guest and student speakers. Monthly meetings were held under the direction of President Eugene Campi. In the first meeting, besides Campi, the officers elected were: Edmund Vadnais, treasurer, and to the office of secretary, Joseph Rechenmacher. In the general meetings, which are held every other month at the A.S.C.E. headquarters in San Francisco, the attending members from the university heard prominent speakers give talks on such geographically diverse subjects as " Engineering In China, " and " The Story of the Trans-Arabian Pipe Line. " Annually, the society holds an essay contest on some engineering subject. The winners of this contest read their essays before the junior forum of the A.S.C.E. in San Francisco.

MAIDA Treasurer Medical Society Organized at Santa Cl ara University during the fall of 1925, the Mendel Society was founded for the expressed purpose of assisting those students who intend to make the medical profession their life ' s work. The aim of the society is to help keep the members informed regarding the latest develop- ments in the biological and related sciences, and to create a keener interest in these subjects. The society has a long and efficient record in the achievement of this aim. The organization derives its name from Gregor Johann Mendel, an Austrian monk, whose discoveries laid the foundation for the science of genetics, and have made him a prominent figure in the history of biology. The first meeting of the society for the school year 1947-48, found sixty- five members electing Robert Prentice as president, Donald Sullivan as vice- president, and Alfred Maida as treasurer. To the Mendel Society went the duty of conducting the rally dance for the University of San Francisco-Santa Clara football game. This they did with dispatch and success. During the year the group meets weekly, and these meetings are featured by talks by the members on recent phases of medical development. Under the guidance of President Prentice, the group made several tours to nearby hospitals, inspecting their facilities, and hearing several lectures on their present problems. The Senate After one year of temporary coalition, The Literary Congress, University organiza- tion for the development of forensic oratory, has been again divided into its original form, that of an upper and lower house. The upper house is known as the Philalethic Senate, while the lower house is called the House of Philhistorians. The Philalethic Senate is open to all students having had one year of previous membership in the House of Philhistorians, which itself is open to all sophomores, as well as to those upperclassmen not fulfilling the conditions of membership for the Senate. The fall and spring semesters of the 1947-48 school year were highlighted by weekly debates on subjects of controversial interest, with two members participating on the affirmative and negative sides of the question. After the debate, a vote was taken of the organization to determine which side had the more convincing arguments. A second vote is then taken to determine the position of the Congress in relation to the actual merits of the proposal. The present organization of the Congress, that is, divided into House and Senate, parallels that of the corresponding bodies in the Congress of the United States. The Senate follows the organization of the federal legislature ' s Upper Chamber. Thus the establishment of four elective offices: the president of the Congress, a recording secretary, a corresponding secretary, and a sergeant-at-arms. Parliamentary procedure, guided by Faculty Moderator Rev. Austin J. Fagothey, S.J., was strictly adhered to in all meetings. At their initial meeting in the fall semester, the members of the Senate elected the following officers: to be president of the Senate, William J. Sullivan, ' 49; to act in both secretarial offices, Joseph T. McNett, ' 48. A sergeant-at-arms was not chosen. Climaxing the efforts of both the Senate and the House for the school year was the Ryland Debate, an annual tribute established in 1897 in honor of the Hon. Caius T. Ryland, who was a prominent businessman of this area, and a graduate and benefactor of the University of Santa Clara. In the debate, the two chosen speakers from the Senate meet the two outstanding speakers from the Lower House, the winners to retain their forensic superiority for one year. The Ryland Debate has for some time been the outstanding extracurricular activity on the campus, and the attention of both faculty and student body focus on this event annually. For this reason, victory is a very coveted honor. It has been often repeated by many members of the bar in this area that a graduate WILLIAM J. SULLIVAN President. First Semester JOSEPH E.

This is a tribute, not only to the Univers- ity ' s College of Law, but also to the fine work performed by the undergraduate debating so- cieties. Through their efforts, the hesitant and colorless aspirant is molded, through his under- graduate years, into a competent speaker. The confidence thus gained by speaking before his classmates gives the student the ability to face a new audience with poise and ability. Thus, the Literary Congress, both Senate and House, prepares not only the pre-legal student, but also any student who desires to be prepared, to face the world with the knowledge that he is capable of proper, competent public speech, a knowledge which will stand him in good stead throughout his life.

MACOMBER Vice-Speaker THOMAS V. CONN Secretary-Treasurer ANTHONY J. CRISTALLO Sergeant-at-Arms The House The war years ' merger of the two forensic societies on the cannpus came to an end at the beginning of the academic year when the House of Philistorians, sophomore debating society, separated from the Philaletic Senate and resumed individual activity in the fields of undergraduate oratory and debating. In resuming its autonomous state the Lower Chamber of the Literary Congress adhered to the traditional structure which parallels the House of Representatives and conducted all business in the accepted Parliamentary procedure. Present day controversial problems were considered in both seminar and debate sessions at the weekly meetings. Following the specific debate the members of the group were polled as to which of the opposing sides advanced the most logical and persuasive arguments. Besides political and social discussion, a series of cultural debates were intro duced to stimulate the interest of the general student body. Most typical of these was the debate raging around the question, " Resolved; that modern jazz will make its contribution to music as a fine art. " Presented before a joint meeting of the Literary Congress the affirmative contention was upheld. BACK ROW, left o right: Thomas Conn, Thomas Sapunor, Donald Canty.

White Debating Society The Stephen M. White Debating Society of the University offers to the freshman students an opportunity to enter into the field of collegiate forensics, and lay the groundwork for further development in debating and public speaking throughout his collegiate career. Rev. William J. Tobin acted as moderator for the group this year, and gave valuable aid and advice to the neophyte debaters. Bernard Vogel was elected president of the group at the initial meeting. Other officers chosen included Gordon J. Machado, as vice-president and Robert L. Maloney, who held the secretary ' s post. In their meetings, the members of the organization held formal debates, followed by discussions which were open to all. Principles and practices of good debating were discussed and put into practice by the debaters themselves. The Stephen M. White Society therefore, offers the students a foundation which will stand him in good stead no matter what his chosen vocation may be.

Under the leadership of its young president, junior Dominic Torcasso, the club, though small in number, has rapidly developed during its initial year of existence. Sharing the executive duties with Torcasso are vice-president and treasurer John White, and record- ing secretary Harold Heger. Moderator of the group is Dr. Richard Manning Hermes, professor of mathematics at Santa Clara. Composed of twenty-five members who are actively interested in amateur photography as a hobby, the Camera Club made several field trips during the year. Kodak shutters clicked furiously during the spring as Torcasso ' s neophytes collected rolls of film snapping informal campus shots for the Redwood annual. Experimental laboratory and darkroom for the camera enthusiasts is located in the basement of the historic Ricard Observatory. Here the photographers learn the technique of developing negatives, the printing of pictures, and the en- largement of shots. From their moderator, the lensmen learn the care and use of their instruments, and the art of taking natural pictures. On the agenda are several revealing lectures from commercial photogra- phers and professional artists. Including one by Mr. Nester Barrett, radio artist from a local San Jose station. Though still an Infant organization, the Camera Club promises to grow and develop Into Its full maturity in but a matter of a few years. Already Its more promising members are furnishing pictures for the weekly " Santa Clara " and the " Redwood. " DOMINIC E. TORCASSO President JOHN J. WHITE Vice-President HARROLD J. HEGER Secretary Gaites Society The Gal+es Chemistry Socieiy is made up of students in the department of Chemistry whose object is to encourage the students in the study of chem- istry, and further such activities as are of interest to these students. This year, the thirty members of the Galtes Society, under president Rob- ert E. Minucclani, made several field trips to industrial laboratories in the Bay Area, and had guest speakers at their biweekly meetings. Other officers of the Society were George F. Bagatella, secretary-treasurer, and George C. Jackson, vice-president. Moderators of the society were Dr. Joseph F. Deck, chairman of the department of Chemistry, and Mr. William A. Carter, chemistry professor at the University. The society made field trips during the year to the laboratories at the Standard Oil Company ' s plant at Richmond, the Wieland Brewery, San Jose, the Golden State Dairies, San Francisco, and the laboratories of the San Fran- cisco Pure Food and Drug department. Hampered by small numbers in the 1946-1947 school year, the Galtes Society underwent a reactivation this year, and has even bigger plans for the 1948-1949 school year. The organization lends a practical aspect to the study of Chemistry, and is open to students whose major is this science. The war years saw the temporary cessation of the activities of the Galtes Society, just as they did for so many others on the campus, but the 1946-1947 school year, with Its rise in the number of students, including Chemistry majors, brought about the rebirth of the organization.

Greene Society has always been one of the greatest active traditions on the Mission cannpus. Named after one of the great playwrights of the theater of the last century and alunnnus of the early college, the society has had its roots firnnly entrenched in the the- atrical history of the surrounding valley for many years. Long before the college became a university, the Clay M. Greene Society on the boards of the Santa Clara Auditorium, affectionately known as the " Ship, " had presented great moments of theater. The Passion Play, a pageant and religious spectacle reminiscent of the European Oberammergau, has been a carefully treasured heritage of the Santa Clara stage since its initial production in 1901. The amateur theater has always proved an excellent medium for productions which are too costly for the commercial stage. Thus, Santa Clara in the past has offered the tragedies of Shakespeare, the morality play, Cenodoxus, and a host of lighter mysteries and comedies. A shift in directors this year necessitated a reorgani- zation of the society that has not as yet been completed. Mr. William Van VIeck, who resigned his post in the second semester last year, was succeeded by the Director of Speech at the University, Mr. Donald Ranney. Mr. Ranney concentrated on the reorganization of dramatics as an activity rather than on the society as such. Fr. John P. O ' Connell, S.J., remained moderator of the group. The result was the production of a night of one-act plays, a dramatic arts contest, and a three- act play. The evening of one-act plays occurred during the early part of November. The first, " The Rising of the Moon, " an old standby, was an Irish comedy in which Frank Keegan exploited his lyric talents. " Trouble " was a problem play stressing heavily the travail of a Negro family during a race riot. Thomas Fullmer as the snivel- ling " white trash, " and Alessandro Baccari, as the ebony patriarch, gave the most studied portrayals of the eve- ning. The third play was an adaptation of a short story by Evelyn Waugh, " The Spider ' s Web. " James O ' Neill played a maddened half-savage lover of Dickens, and John Banister played opposite him as a cowed, despair- ing captive. The Dramatic Arts Contest, also held during the first semester, was part of the tradition of the society and the school. Contestants were allowed a minimum of props and costumes in competition for the grand prize, a fifty dollar gold watch. Peter F. Cimino, a freshman premedical student, was judged outstanding in the role of the frustrated husband In Anton Chekov ' s classic comedy, " A Tragedian In Spite of Himself. " The final presentation of the year was Agatha Chris- tie ' s stage, screen and radio success, " Ten Little In- dians. " THE CLAr M.

O ' NEILL Vice-President ROBERT L SHINDLER Secretary Young Writers Club A relatively new campus organization, the Edwin J. Young Writers group has achieved success in its two years of activity and is now considered one of the nnost prominent organizations at Santa Clara. The group is named in honor of an early professor of English at the uni- versity, Rev. Edwin J. Young, S.J. Meetings of the discussion type are held weekly in the Adobe Lodge. The purpose of the organization is chiefly that of encouraging those who wish to do creative writing. Encouragement and expert technical assistance is given by faculty advisors, Professors Richard Schmidt and Donald Ranney. During the year Edward L. Silva acted as president of the group. He was assisted by James C. O ' Neill and Robert L. Shindler. Taking the view that a buying market should stimulate production, the members formed a special agent committee for the purpose of keeping the group informed on various writing contests and special markets. During each meeting a manuscript of one of the members is read and, upon conclusion of the reading, a general discussion takes place regarding its style and merit. Written criticism is furnished the author in the form of questionnaires which are filled out by the members. MiscEiiAHEous Societies :if Block " S C " Society The school year 1947-1948 found the Block " SC " Society faking ifs place as one of the outstanding organizations on the cannpus. The society, connposed of students who have earned one or more block letters in major varsity athletics, had an increased mennbership, which this year totaled sixty students. Headed by President William J. Prentice, the society sponsored a rally-dance for the Saint Mary ' s-Santa Clara football game, as well as their annual dance, which fol- lowed the contest with the University of California. Other officers of the organization were Francis C. Smith, vice-president, and Thomas J. Payne, sergeant-at-arms. The Block " SC " Society started their yearly activities with the annua! dance in September. Marking the official opening of the Bronco football season, the affair fol- lowed the football game with the University of California, and was held at the Leam- ington Hotel in Oiakland. Over two hundred couples were present. The rally and dance prior to the Saint Mary ' s game in November was held in Seifert Gymnasium. Enter- taining acts for the rally and music for the dance were made possible by the efforts of the society. WILLIAM J. PRENTICE President FRANCIS C. SMITH Secretary-Treasurer THOMAS J.

Included in these were the annual Mass of the Holy Ghost, for deceased stu- dents and faculty, the procession in honor of St. Joseph, patron of the University, and the lectures and chapel services during the student retreat. On April 29, 1948, President ' s Day, the day devoted to University President Rev. William C. Gianera by the students, the society sponsored another dance, held in Seifert Gymnasium. Moderator for the group is Dennis A. Heenan, athletic manager for the university. All proceeds from Block " SC " functions are applied to the fund the purpose of which is the purchase of Block " SC " sweaters and insigne for the deserving athletes. Members of the Block " SC " Society are the students who represent Santa Clara University on fields of intercollegiate athletic competition throughout the nation. The football team carried the banners of red and white up and down the Pacific Coast, and as far east as Michigan, and the basketball team gained honors for Santa Clara this winter on the snowy eastern seaboard of the United States. Bronco baseballers and tennis players won honors for the university all over the state. It is fitting, then, that the organization composed of these students should take its place among the leading organizations on the campus. 187 LEFT TO RIGHT: Robert Malneritch, Raymond Hall, Michael Hennessey, Secretary; John F.

LPHA Sigma Mu After a lapse of five years, the University of Santa Clara Chapter of the Alpha Sigma Nu was reactivated during the school year 1947-1948. Alpha Sigma Nu is the national honor society with chapters in various Jesuit colleges and universities throughout the United States. It is composed of honor students who have distinguished themselves in the fields of Scholarship, service and loyalty to their university. The national society was founded at Marquette Uni- versity in 1915 by Rev. John A. Danihy, S.J. In 1942 a chapter was installed at Santa Clara, with Edward Hurl- butt as the first president. In reactivating the society this year, Hurlbutt was also very instrumental. Officers elected this year were: John F. Smith, president; John I. Shea, vice-president; Michael T. Hennessy, secretary; and William A. McMillan, treasurer. Faculty moderator for the society is Rev. James A. King, S.J., dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Initiation ceremonies were held in the Adobe Lodge on Sunday evening, March 7, 1948. Rev. William C. Glanera, S.J., University President, was the honored guest as the nine candidates were officially accepted by the society. The purpose of the Alpha Sigma Nu is to offer assist- ance in the general promotion of activity, both social and scholastic, on and off the campus. The biweekly meetings of the organization this year were devoted for the main part to a program of aiding campus organi- zations in their reactivation. The method of selection of candidates for the honor society is two students selected by the dean of each college in the university, and three students chosen at large from the university by Father President. Members of the society for the school year 1948-1949 will be selected from the present junior class, and will formally be initiated Into the society at the end of the 1948 spring semester. The Alpha Sigma Nu Is a goal towards which every student In the University should strive. Membership In this society Is a mark of honor and distinction for the student. 188 Bridge Club The growing popularity of in+ercollegia+e bridge contests brought the University of Santa Clara Bridge Club into the center of interest many tinnes during the past school year. The two-year-old society, one of the youngest on the cannpus, entered into matches with Saint Mary ' s College, Dominican College, Notre Dame College, Belmont, and Lone Mountain, San Francisco, winning a majority of their matches. Club President Joseph M. Scaroni expressed satisfaction with the cooperation accorded him by the members of the society. The fifteen players t-epresenting the University made Santa Clara a feared name among other Bay Area collegiate Cul- bertson cultists. Faculty aid was also a vital factor in the 1947-1948 success of the Bridge Club. When the players chose the University campus as the site for administering their crush- ing defeat of Lone Mountain, the visitors were hosted in the best bridge party tradition. Refreshments were served, and the losers were consoled by a dinner in the private banquet room of Nobili Hall. Assisting Scaroni in the administrative functions of the organization were Albert T. Olivier, vice-chairman, and Henry W. Miller, secretary-treasurer. At press time for the REDWOOD, the Club had won five and lost only one match. Their one defeat came at the hands of the Gaels of Saint Mary ' s College, but a return date was set for April 24, at which time Scaroni promised a smashing victory over the hated rivals. Matches were also scheduled with the Newman Club of Stanford University, and a tentative match with the intercollegiate champion team from the University of Cali- fornia. In their biweekly meetings in Seifert Lounge, the members discussed the play- ing of hands, and then put their knowledge into practice with as many rubbers as the time would allow. A tribute to the initiative and tenacity of the bridge-playing members of the student body is the success of the University Bridge Club. BRIDGE CLUB— FRONT ROW, left to right: Wilhelm J.

CONN Secretary-Treasurer GiE£ Club The Glee Club of the University of Santa Clara, under the direction of Professor Clennens Van Pere, completed one of its nnost successful seasons during the past school year. Highlight of the year for the Glee Club was their participation in a concert given by the choral groups of six of the major Bay Area colleges, under the auspices of the National Students Association. Given at the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House in April, the proceeds from the concert were donated for student relief in Europe. The National Students Association managed the distribution of the funds. The concert was the first public appearance of the Glee Club in their new jackets, which were provided for them by the Student Congress.

ROTC With one of the largest complements in its history, the Santa Clara Reserve Officers Training Corps unit completed its second postwar year with a military flourish. Three hundred and fifty student cadets, comprising the cadet battalion, received training in all the basic phases of military science, and upper division cadets received specialized training in artillery during the past year. Officer-in-charge of the University R.O.T.C. unit is Col. Lester A. Daugherty, professor of military science and tactics. His assistants are Lt. Col. James D. Hand, Lt. Col. F. W. C. Ledeboer and Major John J. Kron. Enlisted men assigned to the unit as instructors include First Sgt. William C. Schwartz, M Sgt. Hames E. Hurt, M Sgt. George J. Siegel, M Sgt. William A. Gierisch, and Tech Sgt. Thomas E. Eazarsky. During the school year 1947-48 the three hundred and fifty student cadets were assigned to Batteries A, B, C, and D, which comprised the cadet battalion. The elementary course, which is given to the student cadet during his first two years of college, consists of formal instruction for a mini- mum of three hours a week and is not aimed toward specialization in any particular branch of the army. It is intended to be an initiation into the entire field of military service. Freshman students enrolled in the R.O.T.C. unit are taught subjects which pertain to the World Military Situation, Military Organization, Hygiene and First Aid, Leadership and Drill, Individual Weapons and Aerial and Map Recon- naisance. The program of studies for the sophomore cadet varies more in the intensity, rather than in the scope of the course. The advanced course for juniors and seniors consists of formal instruction for a minimum of five hours a week. Entrance into the ad- vanced course is limited to those students taking an academic course on the college level and who have completed the elementary course, or to those who have received credit for prior service in the Army, Navy, or Marine Corps. This course is of a specialized nature and is designed to qualify selected students for reserve commissions in one 192 m mum - |- - " f -ii- FRONT ROW, left to right: Richard W. Reinhardt, Lt. Col.

Upon completion of their junior year, advanced course students are obliged to attend summer camp at an Army installation for six weeks to get practical field ex- perience. Advanced cadets study the science of military artillery in all of its phases. Courses in Field Artillery, Anti-Aircraft Artillery and Coast Artillery are given. Advanced students ' uniforms vary from the ele- mentary students ' dress in that the advanced cadets wear the officer ' s green blouse and " pink " trousers, while the elementary cadets wear a uniform of green blouse and green trousers. During the school year, the University Rifle Team, under the in- struction of Technical Sergeant Thomas E. Eazarsky met similar squads from colleges throughout the area, and acquitted itself very well.
