O To the Rt. Rev. Msgr. 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
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.

O Keynote of the curriculum of
the College is the Scholastic
philosophy of Thomas Aquinas,
patron saint of all Catholic insti-
tutions of education and of our
school in particular. 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'
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.

I Scholastic superiority is the
goal of every sound college, so we
point first to the efforts of the
Board of Trustees and the Ad-
ministration to secure the serv-
ices of the best men available in
each field to teach at St. Thomas.
The caliber of our teachers is
reflected in the increasing num-
ber of doctorates possessed by our
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

0 In its four years of existence
the All-College Council has be-
come the center of student activ-
ity. 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

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.

0 In terms of Hnal standings in
inter-collegiate competition the
College enjoyed another good
year, Enishing second in football
and basketball and capturing the
state titles in hockey and swim-
ming. 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

0 We who have chosen St.
Thomas, a Catholic insti-
tution, in which to carry on
our education, should rejoice
in our choice and be sympa-
thetic towards those who are
unable to find peace and
solace in God.
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-

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-
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.
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

0 Perhaps the most important section of
the College after the Chapel and the lecture
rooms is the Library. It is here that the
students go for aid in filling in the back-
ground of classroom matter. 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.
The College Library is trying particu-
larly to build its collection of commen-
taries and documentary material on the
works of St. Thomas.

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
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
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.

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
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.

I Once a year the students of the College
have a chance to choose the man whom
they consider a typical, but outstanding,
student. 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. Jim
was remarkable for having completed his
college course in three years with a straight

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.
The next day the entire ,rtudent body took over downtown St. Pagcl

O Participation in the varied forms of recreation offered
in O'Shaughnessy Hall has become a daily practice with
most of the students of St. Thomas since these activities
represent a welcome change from class work and study.
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.

Freshmen Gerry Probst,
O Ireland Hall students tend to gravitate,
knowingly or otherwise, to three points in
Ireland Hall. 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.

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

0 After a gay round of music in Ireland
Hall, those students claiming Irish ancestry
engaged in a eight event contest with those
boasting German stock, but it was a sad
St. Patrick's day after 5 o'clock when Jim
Byrne, promotor of the celebration, an-
nounced the final score to be GERMANS
115 to a close 113 for the Irish.
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.

0 Evidences of an active year by the All-
College Council were shown two weeks
before school began as the president , Arthur
Taylor, organized a committee which gave
the Freshmen a full week's welcoming pro-
gram before most of the upper-classmen
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.

0 The Christophoroi is not a club in the
usual sense of the word. 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-
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. George Garske is president, and Dr.
Ralph Macy is faculty adviser.

O In the parlance of the stage, the Players
club is looking for an "angel" who could
make provisions for the facilities and direc-
tion it needs to become independently pro-
ductive. At present the club is obliged to
confine its activities to cooperation with
the Laboratory Players of the College of St.
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. Members of the club also
served as stage hands for the Choral club
presentation of the "Pirates of Penzance."

0 Appropriation of two thousand dollars
by the All-College Council to purchase uni-
forms and instruments for College band
members has made possible the organi-
zation of an All-College band as a distinct
unit from the Academy military band. 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. Directing the
band is Sergeant John Weber, U. S. A. re-

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
.ff 1.1t4ff75'N '
f f '
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
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

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
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
IF the game had been played at St. Thomas, the
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
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.

I ' 'Fourteen months after O'Shaugh-
nessy Hall with its swimming pool
opened," said one of the Aquin col-
umnists, "St. Thomas won its first
State college swimming title. ' ' That
tells the story rather well with the
exception of one big point-the
work of the coach. 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. The
previous record was held by Gusta-
vus, the perennial state champs.
During the year, the Tommies
gave notice of their prowess by suf-
fering defeat in only two' meets, one
with Gustavus Qwhich they later
avenged, and one with the Univer-
sity of Minnesota.

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
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

0 Continuing the mushroom growth which
it has enjoyed since it was promoted to a
major sport, the Track team has risen to
a position where it is considered a serious
threat to all opponents and not just an-
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
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
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 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
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.
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

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

0 Largest program of student extra-cur-
ricular activity is the intramural program
designed with the idea of presenting the
greatest number of students with oppor-
tunity for participation regardless of skills.
We believe that the St. Thomas program
does that and is, therefore, fulfilling its end.

the winners in various intramural events,
not alone because they are the winners,

that we have pictured here. Those who

tried to give EACH student a picture of life
in his college in 1941. We believe we have
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,
