James C Byrne, we dedicate this annual in sincere appreciation of his many years of service and devotion to the College, first as its Rector and later as a member of the Board of Trustees and as Vicar General of the Archdiocese. 0 This is the story of 1940-41 at the College of St. Thomas based on a definition written by Rev. Joseph A. Schabert, dean ofthe College, who at the request of the editor has set down what the College is and what it aims at being. In the pages that follow, there are recorded in word and in pic- ture the organizations and events which go to make up the St. Thomas we all wish to remember. It is the purpose of this book to serve as a storehouse of memo- ries against the time when the things we now take for granted from day to day will escape us. -ez -P .Ok al eeep , p nt. . I V' .

A sound religion is infused into all courses in this way and is not confined alone to the class periods assigned for its study. Equally important with this ever present Catholic atmosphere 5 th! Gmptl' .ng Keenan 51 Fathlf Forty Hourf Devotion prouuion, are the days devoted to religious emphasis, beginning with the Pontifical High Mass to the Holy Ghost on the opening 'day of school each fall and continuing through the year with Retreat, Forty Hours Devotion and Com- munion breakfasts participated in by club and class organizations. Most interesting feature of this religious program is that it is not compulsory in any phase except the religion courses required of all Catholic students. .4 clauroom-Dr. Braun' command: attention. he gveaahm ,F ww fifth Th: Library--a retreat for ,rcholarr Elin The Chapel-an :diffs to God.

The caliber of our teachers is reflected in the increasing num- ber of doctorates possessed by our faculty members. Most notable development of the past year was the introduc- tion of a modiication of the "l00 Greatest Books" plan of St. John's College of Annapolis. A weekly faculty discussion of one of these classics was open to stu- dents interested in the work under consideration. A course of the same nature was opened to the students of the world litera- ture class and a group of fresh- men from the "speed" composi- tion class. A B . Ek zl!

This was its original purpose, and each year it has achieved that end. When it seemed that the formation of the Council was stifling club activity rather than stimulating it, it became the task of this year-'s Council to relieve Ball is OW' ,ffm the .4 .yield trip to the W ater plant. that condition. By appropriating small sums for private club dances and underwriting class activities, it helped the club and class mem- bers to know one another better. The soundness of this theory became apparent with the grow- ing frequency of forums, field trips, nickelodean dances and general activity. This in turn was instrumental in bringing about an increase in most of the club rosters. The net result of this re-emphasis of the club activity was the increasing cooperation of the student body in each succes- sive all-college function. An initiation-Aefculapianx induct nzophytzf.

Track and baseball are still in progress as this is written but the Aquin sports staff pre- dicts a second or third place in track and a second division show- ing in baseball. We bade goodbye and success to Dr. Nic Musty, athletic director and head football and basketball coach for the past four seasons, as he left our campus to complete his interneship and enter the practice of medicine. We wel- comed the appointment of Mr. Frank Deig to succeed him as director and basketball coach and Mr. William Walsh as football coach. .7 ' -if' W. f ,qs i V - an-:IH A 1 P' W -V L- V ' f +9 , Tw: W, - I ,s gk ff .-,J"' ,f f ,f5'557'Z'f' .

Although every day's work is dedicated to God, once a year the students and faculty devote three days of special recollection entirely to Him. The retreat comes at the beginning of the year, so that students may early rededi- cate themselves to the ideals of a Catholic life, reminding thernselves that success and achievements are empty un- less motivated by the love of God. .4:.ri.fud at Solemn High Max: flnd departed for breakfart. gvrg 5 ,W M 1 Q 1 5? v W X, 1 9 -U '? 0 There can be no more appropriate patron for a Catholic men's college than St. Thomas Aquinas. Probably the greatest theologian of the Christian T era, he epitomizest the scholastic attitude which students of the College hold as their example. The feast of St. Thomas, March Y, is annually celebrated by a Pontif- ical High Mass. Some outstanding speaker helps us recall the things for which Thomas Aquinas stood and the principles which he enunci- ated. This year Rev. Walter Farrell of the Catholic University was that speaker. Father Farrell, of the Dominican order as was St. Thomas, reminded his audience that St. Thomas authored the most sublime defense of human nature ever penned. He declared that men of today must write as fearlessly and courageously as Thomas did if men are to be saved today. V3 T Q, n, 'Bn wofzbm 0 This year Forty Hours devotions came at a particularly appropriate time -the beginning of Lent. It gave students of the College a chance to prepare them- selves for the Lenten duties which as Catholics they perform. The forty-hour exposition of the Eucharist was still another reminder in their College lives of the life-giving and soul-saving power of the grace which devotion to Christ brings.

It is also to the Library that students go for recreational reading-for the mental rest which is so important to the hard-working student- as well as for research material which all serious students require.

CL:-ft to Rightl fame: F itzhafrif, Robzrt Lund, Eugen: McMullen and Steve Quigley. 0 September of 1940 found members of the Junior class beginning to take on duties which would be wholly theirs in another year as men from among their nurnbers assumed important posts in the student set-up. The Juniors point to the vice-presidency of the All-College Council, the editorship of the Aquin, presidency of a number of clubs and positions on the debate team-all held by Juniors-as proofs of activity. In athletics they claim a large representa- tion on the first string tearns to insure continued success next season. Robert Lund is president of the Junior class with Eugene McMullen, vice-president: James Fitzharris, secretary 5 and Stephen Quigley, treasurer. Father Schabert, Dean of the College, once said that it was hard to decide in what category to put the Sophomores. They haven't been here long enough to be old-timers, yet they can't be treated like youngsters for they would resent it. It is probably because of this that the exact outlines of this class unit are hard to determine. Moreover, many Sophomores are completing "pre" courses and don't intend to come back to St. Thomas and so do not take too active a part in student life. But mem- bers intending to return have begun in this year to assert themselves and find a place in activities. Officers of the Sophomore class are Robert Shiely, president: John Knox, vice-president: John Murray, secretaryg and Robert Treanor, treasurer. Lo, the Freshmen, a new group of students who found their way to St. Thomas from all over Minnesota and the nation to form the largest class group in the College. They lost little time in organizing themselves and electing class officers, choosing James Sullivan as their president: Donald Woznak, vice- president: Frank O'Meara, secretary: and Ledio Mariani, treasurer. This executive body with the aid of appointed committees planned and presented the first freshmen sponsored dance, the suc- cessful Tommy Pleasure Time Dance, held November 8 to welcome the intro- duction of the new school pep song written by Fred Waring and presented on his nation-wide Chesterfield program the night of the dance. dmkma E- f V ,-1,-1 -- -, l 1 V ' ' fl! , px 1 lx 'Q' - r"" "nf, ff, Q. , -' ""'l' W" - , ?

I As the new school year opened, the Seniors looked for- ward to what seemed would be a long last haul before their College careers would be finished. But as the months began to fly by there didn't seem to be enough time for all that had to be done. The first semester was over before anyone fully realized it and the problem of comprehensive examinations was closer that most seniors thought. In spite of all, the year was taken in stride as the seniors accepted the leadership in student activities and the responsibilities which accompany that leadership. In addition to using their experience in connection with the All-College Council's activities, the Seniors met their traditional task of sponsoring the annual Mexican Charity Ball and got with it the usual coldest night of the winter which always seems to create the most enthusiastic crowd of dancers. ' Now the seniors approach graduation with the feeling of regret that always accompanies parting and a new feeling of apprehension as the world they looked forward to rapidly changes. They also realize that their day-by- day relations with the clergy may never again be as close as during the last four years, but they know that since they have been helped over the difficult years of their lives, the college period, they will keep the Faith and continue always to be men of St. Thomas.

Nominations are made by petition and require thirty signers. This year Jim Shannon, the 1941 "Mr. Tommy' ' proved that a man may be a good scholar and still be a good fellow. With almost as many votes as his eight rivals combined, Jim won with the largest mar- ginal victory in the contest's history.

O The battle cry "Whoa Johnny" rang around the campus for a full week during preparation for the annual Homecoming Extended to two days this year, the Home- coming celebration began Thursday after- noon, October 24, with the building of the bonfire and continued that night with the burning of the bonfire and a pepfest. The next day classes were dismissed at 10:30 and the huge parade formed in the parking lot before driving through downtown St. Paul and the neighboring campuses. After the successful, football game, the evening was climaxed by a dance in the Armory where under-grads and alumni danced to the music of "Swifty" Elliclxson and his orchestra. iii' The next day the entire ,rtudent body took over downtown St. Pagcl for their annual Homecoming parade Cabozle leftj.

For the less active there are bridge tables, a pool table and chess and checker boards. For those with tendencies toward greater activity there are bowling alleys, ping- pong tables, a swimming pool, squash courts, handball courts, basketball courts, as well as a boxing room and a room equipped with a rowing machine, a stationary bicycle and so forth.

There was no profit for the Council as it provided the music of a name band, elaborate decorations and regal splendor in connection with the Queen. Those behind the plan to make this the biggest dance of the year were rewarded with a large attendance at the dance and universal agreement among those present that the "Rolling Styles of Reggie Childs" was a worthy investment, that the Armory looked more pleasant than ever before and that the Queen was worthy of the crown and title she received.

The most obvious, of course, is the dining hall where, aside from satis- fying the inner man, they also find an ever- willing ear for their tales of woe. Another popular spot is the post offiqe with those ever-so-important letters from home and those ardently awaited notes on tinted paper. Then there is the Dean's office, source of passes. When he is not in any of these spots look for the Ireland Hall lad in his room, but not until you have exhausted the other three. "1-. A iv Thg bcllf 'J Of am?

A., V. 4 i I O Fanciers of Gilbert and Sullivan, as most St. Thomas operetta goers have grown to be, were pleased by the delightful interpretation of the operetta "Pirates of Penzance" as presented by the combined choral groups of the Colleges of St. Catherine and St. Thomas, April Z1 and 22. The direction of Mr. Joseph Conlin with the aid of Mrs. Conlin was neatly effective in giving the musical show a spontaneity necessary for this type of production. A new unity was maintained by cutting the encores to a minimum and taking close care that the action never dragged. A combination of voice and stage presence in Mary Kay Barnett, Claudine Holl, Daniel Dough- erty, Bob Savard and James Gergen who held the leads was chiefly responsible for the success. The ease' of action of the large chorus was another important factor. Savard , . dogg" that Bob h moxt 11'-ENUM" pam Barnett tiff 1 4' Kay bt a ullw Propounded the d1lem1W- om: -is . ' Mf.

Clockwise, the pictures show "Sarge" Weber stoically directing the band in Irish airs, McArdle returning a volley for the Irish, Hautman and Murphy arguing over a bowling ball, a struggle in the water polo game, and finally Jim Byrne awarding the trophy to Bernie Fridell who directed the German activity in the absence of Howie Luebke, the captain. 4' 5' A C1 .

Its spirit was carried through in the "Whoa Johnny" Homecoming which this year became a two-day celebration. As financial success for the year became assured, the Council took another step in furthering student activity by underwriting the organization of an All-College band. Total cost of the project was estimated at two thousand dollars. The Council also voted one thousand dollars with which to install a window in the chapel. Experimenting in 'an effort to settle the "name band" controversy, the Council brought the "Rolling Styles of Reggie Childs" for the Mid-Winter Frolic. Both supporters and opposition to the project claimed a victory as the dance was hailed the biggest social success in years, but in- curred a financial loss. Meanwhile the main bone of contention at every Council meeting continued to be the problem of student government. Mem- bers learned that it isn't achieved spontan- eously. With the progress so far made, they pass the plan along to the new Council. Officers for the past year have been Arthur Taylor, president: James Shannon, vice- presidentg Lawrence Merthan, treasurer: f and Dan Dougherty, secretary. .

These students in putting out their eight, ten and, occasionally, twelve page issues spend more work hours in school thammembersofanyotherorgan- ization and find their reward in the eagerness of their fellow stu- dents as the paper is distributed each Friday. But in addition to their duties as news gatherers, the staff members have by custom become the poll judges in all school-wide elections. It is also the boast of the staff that for two successive years the editor of the paper grad- uated to the presidency of the All-College Council. The remainder of the Press club roster is made up of the Aquinas staff members. The publication of the Aquinas being a Council project, the editor and business manager are appointed by that body after consultation with Father Ryan and the resign- ing editor. Willingness is more essential than experi- ence among staff members whom the editor chooses to help him.

Its adherents are united only by the common desire to further the integration of Catholic philosophy with the activities of daily life. Members voluntarily attend Mass at least three times a week and offer the Rosary each evening in addition to serving as sac- ristans about the Chapel. In the activities of daily life, the Christo- phoroi are equally active, having long ac- cepted the duty of decorating Ireland Hall during the Homecoming and being among the first to volunteer for any other job during the year. 4 Michael Moran is chairman and Reverend William Ozark is moderator of the organi- zation. . -Y-,..f. A I Trying to keep tab on an ever-changing field, that of international relations, the I. R. C. holds meetings monthly. According to their own words, they might do better to hold them daily. In their search for what the future may hold for the international situation, the club has resorted to that great repeater-history. With this end in mind, they have selected historians to speak at their club meetings. Among the historians who have spoken this year to the organization are Rev. Nich- olas Moelter and Mr. G. W. C. Ross. Robert Leahy and Robert Koen served as presidents of the club. 0 Doctors and dentists, too, have to be "socialized". The Aesculapian club takes care of that for future St. Thomas doctors and dentists. Yearly funfest for the old members is the initiation of new members. "So you're going to be a doctor: well, let us introduce you to the profession," goes the line of the old men as they demonstrate some of the more gruesome aspects of practice to the initiates. The club, composed of more than fifty men, holds regular meetings at which it calls in noted medics to speak. Not the least of its activities is the annual dinner dance.

Finding themselves at the begin- ning of the year without officers and with- out any standing organization, these men interested in the business profession re- vitalized what now is one of the most active campus clubs. Besides conducting monthly meetings at which such men as Fred B. Wilson, as- sistant commissioner of Administration for the State of Minnesota, spoke, the club sponsored an all-student convocation. The ' speaker, Herbert Miller, Commissioner of Natural Resource Research of the State of Minnesota, pointed out the opportunities which the resources of the state provide for the college graduate.

This year they assisted the St. Catherine's group in the production of "The Goose Hangs High," their major undertaking, and many smaller works of the Play Pro- duction class.

The reception which was accorded the new band by students attending the recent convo- cation concert indicates that interest is whole-heartedly behind the Council's action in this new project. In addition to playing for convocations, pep fests, parades and athletic events, the band steps out occasionally for an evening of its own. One of its successful functions was the band club dance.

JZQTZF' Ground :chool clan Contact! iQ.-L-.1'e:. ,, .- 1 If 0 During the past year twenty students from the College received pilot training under the Civil Aeronautics Authority, popularly known as the C. A. A. The course combined a ground school teaching theoretical flying and Chamber of Commerce rules of flight with the practical training of actu- ally flying a plane under the guidance of an expert at a local airport. To gain their pilots licenses, the students were required to complete eight hours of authorized flying time, during which they were taught the rudiments of handling the craft in take-offs, landings, and various other maneuvers. Upon bi.. 1,H,.-,-'5'.fQqQ- .ff 1.1t4ff75'N ' f f ' nl" reaching mastery over these fundamentals, each student was allowed to "solo" and the rest of his required flying time was devoted to the finer points of aeronautics. The students were also introduced to the intri- cacies of airplane mechanism and the complicated rules of flight regarding altitude, right-of-way and so forth as laid down by the United States Department of Commerce. Although this training is indirectly part of the huge national preparedness campaign there is no obligation attached to the students who complete this course. 13? l1 E ,j l hf3"": , 5 1 J UT B I .gh-wx:-rf-f-'.':, H , '. ,,' Y naw- -V 121:-msec f ,- ,MMM KMZ 0 Three groups which in the past three years have grown to be almost as much a part of the College as the students themselves are the Mothers' club, the Dads' club and the Alumni!-sociation.

J' gn 4 Prayer L4-on M 'J' mfk Wwe 1.940 0 Sports fans got out a great big "IF" and dusted it off when talking about the 1940 Tommy football team which failed to repeat as conference cham- pions owing to a defeat at the hands of Gustavus who dumped the Toms in the last 30 seconds of play. Most irnportant "IF" centered about what would have happened IF some Gustie hadn't thought Mike Korman was trying to steal a football. The whole story is this: After the Gusties scored in the last 30 seconds of play, they kicked off to St. Thomas and the ball was put into play on the Purple 23 yard line. With time enough for one play, Steve Quigley dropped back to throw a pass but was tackled, and the ball bounced about the ground as the gun went off. However, the ball was still aliveg so Korman scooped it up and began a walk to the Gustie goal line with Dick Gavin walking interference. IF the game had been played at St. Thomas, the x ' x Gusties probably would not have thought that Korman was trying to steal their ball, would not have stopped Korman, and a score would have been made giving St. Thomas a tie of 20-20 with the opportunity of winning the game on a point after touchdown. The rest of the season was no problem as the Toms marched over St. John's, St. Mary's and St. Olaf in that order and then finished off the season with a non-conference rout of Loras 19-Z.

When the story of St. Thomas' first swimming title is retold, the name of Mr. Robert Christiansen, the coach, deserves high mention. His persistent assist- ance was an important factor in the success of the swimming team. In addition bringing home the swimming honors, the Tommy tanksters doubled their glory by posting a new record in the state re- lay event with a time of 3 :56.8.

Number one man among the Tommy skaters during the year was John Mahoney, one time Intermediate class champion, who was skating his first year in the senior division. Mahoney was among the top men in each meet during the year but never managed to hit the coveted first place. Dick Cover one of St. Pau1's leading skaters for the past several years is the number two man for the Tommies. In addition to these two men, Al Dim- mer, a Detroit star, contributed to the largest and strongest team of Tommy skaters ever to enter a national meet since Leo Freisinger and Vic Roncetti skated with St. Thomas a few years back. join: MAHONEY W' AL DIMMER ,.

O Power at the bat and a classy infield is the description of the current St. Thomas baseball team given by the Aquin sports staff. Thus put on the spot by the local boys the squad is expected to produce. The classy infield is made up of co- captains F ent Horwath and Art Kaess at second and shortstop, respectively, with freshman Bob Mitsch at first and Joe Mur- ray on the keystone sack. Gene O'Brien catches. Coach "Wee" Walsh has a number of pitchers to draw from with Pete Kramer, Don Lentsch and Don Peschel leading the list. Walt Nalepka, Joe Renner and Dick Eichten will hold down the outfielding duties. A . Q A N a T X1 XE A 717-37? -17:7-.,...,i51?,,rs'i.

Strength of the Tommy track team lies in the field events, with Captain Hugo Ren- den, state shot-put record holder, leading the way. He has the assistance of Frank Wambach in the shot-put and discus events but holds down individual honors with the javelin. In the first meet of the season against St. Olaf, Renden took first place f . 4 in these three events. In the track events, the rapid improve- ment of Clay Pardo, former Academy star, Charles Kronschnable and John Huebach is taken as a definite sign of good days ahead, according to student-coach George Kenny. All things taken into consideration, the 68-58 victory the Toms hung up in the first meet of the year after having taken third in the State meet last year shows remark- able improvement in this sport. For the five years previous to last season, the Toms had not won an inter-collegiate track meet. I ' Q95 E I s i' 1 3 I w,M. Lgfi za right, -int row: M. Toryamki, T. McGfathh, L. Mikulay, Lieb, j.

S90 I The successes of last year's Golf team, whose members won eight and lost two meets, is largely responsible for the feeling of favoritism in the College conference that is placed on the 1941 Tommy golfers. But only one man from last year's successful squad has returned to carry the burden and that man is Tommy Hamper, Minne- sota State Amateur golf champion, who is coach, captain and number one man for the Tommies. Hamper was faced this season with the 'task of replacing men like Dick Gavin, Ed Collins, Bob Fogarty and Bud Hale who have been graduated or who left St. Thom- as. The material from which Tom will pick his team is pictured above and in- cludes such hopefuls as Nick Kocisko, Paul Johnson, Fred Brom, and Bob Lindorfer. Up to the time the Aquinas went to press, the squad showed little possibility of retaining their top standing in the state, going down in defeat in their first two matches, one with the University of Minne- sota and one with Carleton college. How- ever on both days, Hamper led the field with good, low early season scores which point toward a repetition of his earning the State college golf championship. Last year he shared the title with Jimmy Nor- dine of Gustavus, both boys shooting 150 in the meet. Tamb 0 Two victories in two starts was the open- ing shot of the Tennis squad, another group that gets under fire after the material for this book is written. I In winning those two matches, the 1941 Netmen showed the stuff that may take them through another year marked with the success of last season's squad. Last year with the star play of coach and cap- tain, Tom Feely, Bob Giblin and Ed Struble the Tennis squad won ten straight duel meets but bowed to St. Olaf in the state meet. C in-JJ. Left to right: E. Struble, R. Christznfon, T. Mammhan, T Mulfort T. Sweetzer, j. Coughlin, j. Sullivan, R. Dooley. I This year, the team is without the serv- ices of these three men but the doubles combination of Coughlin-Christiansen and the singles work of Art Cerre and veteran Pat Dooley seem to fill the vacancy. Struble, declared ineligible this season, is the coach of the team. Over the matter of the State meet there falls the usual shadow that follows a green team. Pat Dooley is the only member of the team who has played in a state meet. To the rest of the squad it will be a new experience.

We believe that the St. Thomas program does that and is, therefore, fulfilling its end. On these two pages there are pictured the winners in various intramural events, not alone because they are the winners, but because they represent the one-half of the student body who have competed in the program. .f""' gnnty' Gene 0'Brien rolled xinglrjzigh :core in the Aquin Swcepxtalzef. we l Ryan Clzftl and Gfnnbzfg Crightj batzlzd in a rontut of brain af Celusnzk judged the final: in the chu: tourney.

Those who have been most active will usually be pic- tured and mentioned most often: those who are pictured less often will usually be those students who have not been as prominent. We have not attempted to pic- ture here every student but instead have tried to give EACH student a picture of life in his college in 1941. We believe we have clone this. Newer methods of composition and pres- entation are constantly being offered. This year's Aquinas has taken advantage of all these new features whenever it was eco- nomically possible. We believe that it is physically the best book which could have been produced with the money, time, and material available. We hope you think so, too. 11.7-,, .v.-.-,,......-- ww- .3 , - .. 1 u -rx.: -nw.. - 6 ---'M A -"K +1-'f 21-WW--'w ' 5' r'7f'iff'i?1f'- '-"24LW"r1 Saba' 'M W' "-" ""1M""" 'ff' 'W " "' -1 , T' 1 .-.':,4:...-..t..... -.L , H , Haig- - ' , ,.-., -f- -1 - -7, . , -.... -. -.-- . , . f . 2, ,.., .
