As we undertake another recording of happenings at Villanova
we are full of the confidence ordinarily associated with younger
years, the enthusiasm proper to the venture is not lacking to us,
the responsibility, however, which the task entails shows up in
very clear outline, and we must humbly admit some wholesome
misgivings regarding our ability to meet it.
It is most fitting, then, that we should beg the indulgence of
those who peruse these pages. We would not measure the satisfac-
tion of others, however gracious and forbearing, by the pleasure
that is ours. At Villanova we feel we have a choice possession
peculiar to us. It can be explained only in the daily contacts, loyal
friendships, dependability in meeting challenges, and a thousand
other little human things that make up daily living. We have lived
with the men here presented, we know them even as they know
usg the bonds knit through the years are strong and intimately
There is delight in retrospection, because as old scenes come to
life the renewal of bygone satisfactions brings new joy. Such an
experience we would awaken in the days to come for all who turn
these pages. There is, however, a more important objective under-
lying all the efforts here represented. More than once has it been
said that the friendships of youth are among the strongest and best.
Friendship, we know, is meant to bring a confirming assurance in
the shadowy vicissitudes of life. How can we fail, then, to feel a
confidence in the friends we have made at Villanova? In a later
day may we not find in this record the suggestion of someone on
whom we can always count, someone for whom we have a mean-
ing, someone to whom cur interests are a personal concern?
With this thought in mind the Class of 1947 puts forth this
modest effort. VVe are grateful to all who have contributed in any
way to make it a realityg we are most grateful for our own good
fortune in having here more than a record.

There was a time way back in the Fall of nineteen-hundred and forty-three when a
group of bewildered homesick boys first saw the place they were to call home for the
next few years, a group of terra cotta colored buildings hidden behind a stately grove of
'T he first few weeks, and in fact the first several months, were a trying and never-to-
be-forgotten experience. In the beginning the class numbered twenty-three. Of this original
number twelve are of the group graduating. The class is the largest in the history of the
school and contains the largest number of students who have spent four years at Villanova.
As things began to settle down the class elected officers and with the establishment
of leadership immediately set out on a programme of activities that showed unity and
enthusiasm that has never flagged. This same spirit accounts for the genuine prominence
that the class has enjoyed in all school affairs from the beginning. It might be remarked
here that the wisdom of the selection of officers originally has paid off and some of the
original group of selectees are still enjoying the esteem of their fellow-students and the
faculty by guiding the destinies of the Class of J47 in their last year at Villanova. Dick
Hamilton was the first president of the class, Don Jacobs the first viceepresidcnt and, Jim
Tarpey the first secretary-treasurer.
As is usually the case much of the hidden talent in the class put in its appearance
as the various seasons for different sports came round. The class was revealed to have a
generous supply of fine potential athletes. We found Dick Hamilton, Marcus Crahan,
Jim Tarpey, John Chapek, Don Jacobs, in football and basketball. To add to the general
excitement we even had a HD" team in the field of basketball. Such minims as Ferreira,
Rodriguez, Purpus, Troeger, Barnard and Cucalon added more thrills and laughs to a
game than the Varsity. They were in dead earnest and never so entertaining as when they
were giving their all. lbarra in track, and Specht in baseball were real finds.
Our first year came to a close and left us much wiser. As vacation went by we began
to look forward to another year when the whole cycle of events would be open to us. ln
fact our second September at Villanova found us so full of energy and ambition that it
became a recognized fact that the Sophomore Class was showing the way to the rest of
As is ordinarily the case a few of the old faces were missing, but new ones had come
to take their place, and we seemed none the worse for our losses. We now numbered
twenty-six. The first thing we did was to elect officers. The results of the balloting came
out something like this: Jim Tarpey became president, Mike Noonan was chosen vice-
president, while Neil Dorward and Don Jacobs were elected secretary and treasurer
About the first month back the class undertook something that first showed their
organizing ability. Football rallies had been for the most part whimsical and wild displays
of enthusiasm previously, but now they became planned and well organized affairs. For a
lot of inexperienced greenies the sophomores did all right. This display of group effort has
been a characteristic of the Class ever since.
The football team of '45 on its record turned out to be the greatest in the history of
the School, and it had on its roster no less than six sophomores: Tarpey, Crahan, Ibarra,
Noonan, Hamilton, and Ludwig. And these men occupying regular berths were only too
happy to acknowledge that their ability to stay in there and give of their best was possible
only because they had with them such stalwarts as Dorward, Specht, Chapek, Jacobs, and
Taix eager and willing to take over and keep up the pressure. And did this bring us
In basketball, much to our joy, we placed Chapek, Tarpey, and Specht on the "B"
team. George Ludwig was picked on the All-Tournament team in Los Angeles. Andy
Collins paced the "C" team from the start. In tennis Tarpey and Jacobs made the School
team. We felt now that we were not doing too badly.
When baseball came up Marcus Crahan got a place on the Varsity and the Junior
Varsity boasted of such sophomores as C. Arosemena, Chapek, Specht, and Sims.
There are other auxiliary activities or sports besides the main branches that bring the
School before the public. The Lariat Club did not lack sophomore representation. In
addition to these sports sidelines, there were a number of organizations that have been
traditional at the Prep, and they, too, felt the impact of the enthusiasm of those sopho-
mores who were numbered among their members. The Annual Staff, the Prep Times Staff,
the Eucharistic League, and the Lettermen's Club, all benefited as a result. ln all the
foregoing list there have been members of the Class of ,47 in responsible positions from
As might be expected our social life took on greater proportions as sophomores. The
Christmas Ball sponsored by the Sophomore Class for this year was admittedly one of the
highlights of the school year. This served to do something for the Class, because from the
close of this our second year at Villanova we looked always forward. We now knew that
no form of scholastic activity was beyond our capacity, whether it be something pertain-
ing to the classroom or something distinctively on the extracurricular side.
Our return to the Hwarsl' the Fall of ,45 was really something special. We had found
ourselves and we were going to show the world, especially that small corner of it found
at Villanova. In our minds we were the undisputed leaders of the School and we were
determined to act out the part. In a matter not mentioned thus far but more important
in the record of the Class of '47 than any other achievement we had set a pace that gave
us something substantial to point to with pride: the fact that for its whole period of years
at Villanova the class led in the number of high grades gained in the various classes. With
such real students as Bridgehouse, Jacobs, Collins, and Harris We could set a pace for any
group scholastically, while at the same time showing our heels to many another group in
the field of sport.
The elections this year were very spirited. Jim Tarpey, Andy Collins, and Steve
Laubacher were chosen president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer respectively. The
men who had come along from the beginnings of the Class had shown their staying
powers, and new blood was recognized for its worth.
The sports programme again served to bring out the predominance of the Class. The
Varsity squad in football numbered among its regulars and near-regulars Hamilton,
Specht, Crahan, Tarpey, Dorward, Laubacher, Backe, Friel, Chapek, and Copley. In
basketball there was even greater representation. Collins, Laubacher, Crahan, and Specht
made the Varsity, while the UB" team, one of the best for that year, numbered among its
members Justo Arosemena, Jacobs, Friel, and C. Arosemena. Ferreira, Biane, and Parsons
were outstanding on the "CM team.
ln tennis again it was Collins, Tarpey, Jacobs, and Arosemena who did the honors
for the Juniors. Collins brought added lustre to the record by being awarded the accolade
for being the best player in the School for the year.
Baseball came round in its turn and Barnard, C. Arosemena, Biane, Sims, Chapek,
Laubacher and Backe all took a part and played it to the hilt.
During the Junior year an event of supreme importance to the School and Student
Body took place: the Student Council came into existence. On its first list of members
were found the names of Tarpey, Collins, Hamilton, and Jacobs, and it is no exaggeration
to say that much of the success that has attended the efforts of this organization to pro-
mote the well-being of the Student Body may be attributed largely to the work of these
Someone somewhere has said that the Junior Year is the most important year in the
life of the high school or college student. If the social as well as scholastic and sports
successes of the Class of ,47 may be taken as a criterion we can heartily agree with this
statement. The Halloween Dance, Farewell Dance to the Class of '46, and above all the
Junior Prom, held at Montecito Country Club in Santa Barbara, attest to the great im-
provement in every way that had been made by the class. We had really lived up to
With the coming to a close of our third year we naturally determined to make our
final year one to be remembered. It was to be our crowning glory. To begin with the men
chosen to lead the destinies of the class were Marcus Crahan, Don jacobs, and Don
Bridgehouse, as president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer respectively.
As usual the sports played here at Villanova gave an opportunity for the class to
shine. Football came in with a rush, but the record achieved did not quite measure up to
that of former years. However, the Class of ,47 was well represented in the person of
Tarpey, Hamilton, Crahan, Jacobs, C. Arosemena, Backe, Dorward, Laubacher, Copley,
Friel, Chapck, and Bianc. Basketball likewise found Collins, Laubacher, Friel, Backe, and
Jacobs in the "A" group. C. Arosemena, Biane, Parsons, Ferreira, in the HB" group,
helped put one of the best MBU teams in the history of the school on the court, and their
wonderful record is there to prove it. ln the line of tennis once again Collins, Tarpey,
and Crahan found room for themselves on the squad and did all right for the School.
Baseball gave its customary opportunities for the class and with Biane, Chapek, Crahan,
C. Arosemena, Barnard, Sims, and Ferreira on the squad we felt that we were helping
We should feel very much amiss were we not to note here the wonderful contribu-
tions made by Adrian Lynch in his assistance with the coaching and participation in
games here and there where eligibility rules permitted. Ade was one of our great stars in
football, basketball, and baseball before the war caught him up and he found it necessary
to suspend his scholastic endeavors for a while. He came beck to us in September and
showed the same old prowess in the same old way. His speed and form were improved, if
anything, and there was the headwork that only experience can bring.
Under the stimulus of a greater sense of responsibility the work of the class repre-
sentatives on the Student Council has been a real contribution to the promotion of School
morale and sense of discipline. A record has been set that promises well for those which
will come in other times and places.
During this last year the social calendar has been increasingly full and there has
been a style and character to each activity as it came along that shows that the class has
profited from its experience. To take the Senior Prom, held this year in the Beverly Hills
Hotel, as an example, we find in this event the crowning touch to all those of a similar
kind that preceded it.
The history made by the Class of '47 is coming to a finale, but it is only the close
of a chapter. There will be many more. VVhat they will hold, or what pattern they will
follow we cannot anticipate, but we can feel justly proud of the first chapter and hope
that those to follow may bring added glory to Villanova even as they bring success to us.

We are happy to begin these thumb nail sketches of the men of ,47 with
one of the best-and We think they are all Very good-Carlos Arosemena. Perhaps
the most noticeable thing about Carlos is his uncanny skill at drawing. But he
has a trait that lies much deeper, a trait which We should all emulate: a willing-
ness to buckle down and do the job, no matter how difficult or trying it may be.
Some people learn in a Hash, others do not learn at all. Carlos sits clown and
beats problems as they come at him. He has done this in sport, he has clone it
in study, he has done it in his every endeavor here. Whether he returns to
Panama or goes into Santa Clara, as he plans, we are confident that he cannot
fail. Good luck to you, Carlos!

We've seen his smiling face these years,

It pleases us to introduce to you a son of the Republic of Panama-and a
four-year Villanovan of real mettle besides. Throughout the whole time our
class has been at Villanova whenever a man was needed to Work on a class
project or school endeavor :Iusto was there capable and ready. With his un-
failing good nature he has won many lasting friends. He has brought much
glory to the class by his native talent in art, tennis, and basketball, and especially
by being himself. For such a man of good will our good wishes are not needed.
But We extend them anyway to this best of comrades.

Don Backe, one of the mighty day hops, has been purring over from Saticoy
to us for two years now. ln that time his quiet humor and never-failing courtesy
as well as his fun-loving nature have gained him regard and respect in the eyes
of all at Villanova. On the football field he once came near dying literally for
Villanova. But he lived to feature in many victories for his Alma Mater. This
recuperative angle of his nature is evident in all Don does. ln Saticoy or else-
where his honest friendliness is sure to win him large success. We'll always

Denny is not so tall, but size does not stand in the way of his being one of
the more important members of the Class of '47. He is one of our day hops. We
have been impressed with certain accomplishments acquired through the years
by our good friend, Denny. In fact with almost bated breath we are awaiting
some serious publications by him on various topics of value and interest to
many, publications on such topics as "Hitch-hiking Scientifically Explained."
"The Geography of the Ojai-Ventura Region." As a protege and foil for Father
Garrett his services have been invaluable in the dissemination of elementary
scientific knowledge. Besides being a good student, he is a baseball artist of
renown. And of course we must not forget his skill with the ivories-on the key-
board. Someday, if his turn of mind takes him to ranching, the family prefer-
ence, we expect him to be the greatest rancher in the county. Our best wishes

If anyone wants proof of the old adage 'fgood things come in small pack-
ages" we show him Rene. Though with us now a full three years "Beanyi'
seems hardly any taller than when he first came in. But size is no index of
energy. On that score he leads most of the class by a good margin. He has done
welllin sports, in the classroom, and is most at ease on a horse. His Gallic wit
and personality have endeared him to the whole class. Others propose, Rene
disposes. He is always game for a good idea. His eye is set on Vine culture in
this country, and later on he hopes to pursue his inquiries in France. When he
is ready to do business, heill surely have a potent brew.

No list of sports appears after Denis name. VVere we to list his preferences
in this regard, we should find a keener interest than meets the eye. His real
expenditure of energy is given to books-not comic books. It is said of him that
he does not indulge in violent sports, and we can believe this of him. But don't
let this fool you. He is no mean adversary when it comes to debate on his
political theories. His inquiring persistence is prodigious, and, judging from his
grades, has paid off. He has been among the leaders in scholastic standing from
the start. The quality and quantity of his work is best appreciated by pointing
to the regular monthly issues of the Prep Times ol' which he has been editor the
past year, and by reading the pages of this copy of the Villanovan. There is very
little in this book in which he has not had a hand. May the whole-souled giving
of himself, which has done so much for his Alma Mater, always redound to his
credit and go with him through many happy years.

John hails from Santa Paula, and never lets us forget the fact! He is an
open-handed friendly kind of fellow. An ardent football and baseball fan, during
the seasons it is very easy to get John's exact location-there he is glued to the
radio in raptures of excitement. Such astute comments, too! To some of us who
can return to earlier years here at Villanova the thought has often come that
John was never forgiven by Mike Noonan for his fullness of argument over
games played and replayed. According to dame rumor our genial classmate in-
tends to take an active part in his father's hardware business. We have only this
to say: John will be an asset to the firm in every sense of the word. The best to

Andy Collins came up from St. lohnis Military Academy in the sophomore
year. His presence here soon made itself felt, and We found him to be from the
very start a real all-round Villanovan. His easy-flowing gaiety and calm reason
contributed to every discussion and every gathering. His superlative grades
brought no small honor to the class, and his slcill in sports Was truly amazing.
Nor did his Worth fail to meet with suitable recognition. He has been vice-
president of the class, and secretary of the Student Council. He numbers a host
of friends and well-vvishers in and out of the class. ln him We see all the promise
possible. As soon as he has finished his course in Holy Cross, Where he is at
present slated to go the Navy will have first call on him, and some day it may
Well be Admiral Collins. How very much good fortune We Wish Andy!

Football 3, 4.
Here we have the he-man of our class. Come what may in the way of
physical labor and endurance tests, Bill is always ready and eager to try his
hand. He does his share and more. Truly from all the moving and building he
has done around the plant, if we can't call him "founder" of Villanova, we can
at least point to him as a powerful prop. But Bill is much more, because he can
do a good job on the football ,field-he never backs up. And there is no one at
Villanova who can challenge his lidelity of application to his studies. His humor
is ready and sometimes on the courageous side, but it is always full of amuse-
ment and utterly lacking in sting. His straightforwardness, sincerity, and com-
plete cheerfulness have won the school to him. We'll miss him very much, but
we'll be happy in the realization that wherever he may be, whatever he may be
doing, he will be doing his best, and that will mean he is bringing success to his
work and himself. We just know.

Bill works hard at all he does,
He tries his very best
To do some more than quite enough,
His joy is work-not rest.

Marcus is a man with whom you ought to get acquainted, first of all for
your own sake, and secondly because you can then more easily appreciate the
effects he has wrought on the class as a whole. He is a big fellow with a ready
smile. He is possessed of the will to argue for an unlimited time on an unlimited
range of topics. He will venture an opinion on anything from the last baseball
game to the hereafter-or the next election. But he really has something to say.
ln addition there is the fact that he is one of two members of the Class of ,47 to
play Varsity football for four years. His influence in all class activities has ever
been strong and helpful. ln fact it has been good enough to win for him the
recognition of his classmates, who chose him for their president. On the Student
Council he has been a real promoter of school morale. The Senior Prom so
memorably conducted owes its success chielly to him.

Ioe is the strong silent type-strong in character as well as physique, and
silent with the eiliciency and reliability that we associate with quiet. He has
varied likes-they used to run to horses and Fords. These lilies have served him
and Uncle Sam very well in recent years. ln 1945 he went off to War and after
three years of hard going came home, only to resume his pursuit of learning.
And he has done right well by himself. The Class of ,47 remembers Joe with
great affection, because when they were starting off as lowly scrubs he helped
to ease the Way. What a hero we had in a certain tackle who just about wrecked
the opposition! Yes, we remember him very well, and We are proud that his
graduation day coincides with ours. He has loved Villanova, and all true Villa-
novans hold only the highest regard and affection for him.
All hail to those with courage!
To those with cheer and song!
To you who keep this world alive,
And make the day seem long!

Neil has many unusual qualities. One of these, however, is deserving of
notice: his ability to detect fraud, and satirize it. Let anyone present a bogus
argument to Neil and in less time than it takes to tell it he makes it seem as
silly as it really is. But there is more than this to Neil-there is his love of fun
and loyalty to friends. As has been so truly said of him by one who is in a very
advantageous position to know, "he is a great game manf, When the going is
tough, he is in there and never yields. He is appreciated more than he knows.
Villanova will watch him, especially when the going is rough. And Villanova
has confidence that her faith will not be misplaced.
Neil's shown us on the foothall field,
Anal in his daily life,
Those qualities of heart and minal
That overcome 0ne's claily strife.

Meet John Faries, a tall soft-spoken gentleman from the beautiful and far-
famed town of Flintridgc on the fringe of Pasadena. john came to us only this
year from Pasadena junior College, but in his short stay here he has made us
wish we knew him much longer. A man of application, with a facile tongue,
and great calm-even in the midst of hot water. He has a heavy share of un-
selfishness in his makeup and this has been an asset more often than he himself
knows. A picture of his good nature, grace, and fresh urbanity will long remain
in our memories. We wish him a most happy and satisfying future.

A four year man from Old Mexico, and part of the life of Villanova, the
Hector of today is a far-cry from the shy little boy who first came to us and
forgot to bring his tongue along. In fact he only found out he had one when he
became a sophomore. Energy unlimited is a brief but very apt description of
him at all times. He is always at something with a bang! .lust to prove our
point-he is very skilfull on a horse or in a plane, his hobbies include carving,
shooting, pigeons, and as many more. But never at the expense of study. He
has found the balance between the whimsical and the serious, he will keep that
balance always. We are very sure of it. So here's to Hector, a true Villanovanl
'S' 'E' -is
There's really no one like him
Of all the seniors here,
He has his special line of talk,
His special brand of cheer.

Phil Flynn came to Villanova as quite a little fellow surrounded by even
younger Flynns. And we watched him grow into the spirit of Villanova until
nothing happened here of which he was not a part, whether it was sports or
anything else. At the center position on the Varsity he was a headache to many
an opponent-football was something he really liked. He was perpetually full of
bounce-nothing could keep him down for long. Like others of his day who
have come back to us his decency with the small fry was proverbial. We feel
honored that after the VV ar he has come back to us to share our day of triumph.
Our heartiest good wishes we extend to you Phil, and may your every clay be
prosperous and full of triumph. You deserve well of all of us.
Not many of as know this man,
Bat those of ns who do
Will not forget his winning ways,
Anal fine good nature, too.

There are no better liked men at Villanova than Dick Hamilton. His stay
with us, judging from the list of his varied extra-curricular activities, has not
been an idle one. His ability has found recognition many times over in his being
chosen at different times president of his class, vice-president of the Student
Council, and president of other organizations. ln the midst of the honors that
have come to him quite unsought, as well as in the give and take of daily life
at Villanova he has stamped himself in the minds of all of us as a true Christian
gentleman. To our minds this seems a worthy accolade. Factious fury has never
touched him, and the quiet strength at all times in evidence makes us feel very
proud of Dick and full of well-wishing for him.
'E' -5' 'Q'
So highly think we of this man,
His character, his kindly ways,
That we sincerely pray anal hope
For happiness to fill his days.

Coming across the blue Pacific from Maui, T. H., Ted Joined us two
years ago. A student of highest scholastic talents he has more than held his own
in studies from the very beginning of his stay at Villanova. His unfailing good
humor, sometimes subtle, at other times uproarious, has served to gladclen many
an occasion. His gift of irony and powers of reasoning are among his choicer
endowments. Above all, of course, his ability as a Thespian has become an
accepted fact here at Villanova. We have seen his sterling performances in St.
Catherineis Dramatic productions. When he achieves his present ambition of
entering the Pasadena Playhouse our best wishes and enthusiastic interest will
follow him. Many a Villanovan hopes one day to see Tedis name in lights.

House social structure. When the Ranch House Boys begin to show up in car-
loads we know that breakfast is due-we need no bell. His all-round helpfulness,
plus his genuine solicitude for the rest of the class, has left an impression on his
associates that will not soon be erased. Whatever is the concern of Villanova is
the enthusiasm of Phil. We do not know what the direction of his future ways
may be, but we are sure that he will achieve a great measure of success, if he
capitalizes on what he has learned to do for himself and others at Villanova.

Don is a fellow whose acquaintance you really should make. He is always
self-possessed and quiet-and very human. But let's look at his record. His grade
average for his four years at Villanova, to our knowledge, has never been sur-
passed in the history of the school. And despite his attention to his books he has
managed to contribute more than his share to the sports calendar at Villanova.
In tennis and basketball he has made his mark in a special way. To this we must
add the fact that he has been the secretary-treasurer of almost every organization
at Villanova at some time or other. His work on the Student Council has been
appreciated because of the eminent fairness of his outlook. He is far from a
grind-he is lots of fun. Stanford University and the Navy have already accepted
him. Whichever he chooses he will surely bring with him great promise-and
fulfillment. This is our expectation, and fondest wish.

We know that Don is quite alertg
We know his friendly waysg
We know that life holds much for himg

Steve Laubacher seldom says very much, but when he does say something
it is usually something worth listening to. On the other hand he does not need
to talk, he does things and lets it go at that. One of our finest basketball and
football players, he has contributed much to the athletic glory of Villanova. His
successful management of the finances of the Prep Times and The Villanovan,
especially through advertising, has helped appreciably in making of both efforts
in the field of journalism the success they have been. l-lis Work as a class ollicer,
and his unwillingness to think other than the best of his companions have pro-
moted the morale of the class to a degree that means his presence will be missed
greatly. We wish you well indeed, Steve!

"Squire," as Ade was known to Father Tuohy in the "dear days gone by"
like several other graduates of this year had his education interrupted by the
call of war. But he came back and is finishing his high school career at his old
Alma Mater. To us he is quite a remarkable fellow. His sense of justice is a
tradition with his companionsg his athletic record is equal to the school's best.
But there is another item that marks him off from the ordinary run of people:
he has known the honor of receiving the coveted Villanova Award, the highest
honor in the power of the school to bestow. He has known the weight of hostili-
ties in his service in our Navy. He has shown that the award was well bestowed.
To Villanova, Ade will always be one of her finest.

JOHN JACOB MENNE, IP..
Jake Menne is a comparative newcomer to our ranks-he joined us in his
senior year. Prior to that he had been at St. Clare's in Oxnard. We did not have
an opportunity to see what his prowess was on the lield, especially in track, but
we have been regaled by stories of his speed by those who have seen him in
action. However, we need no coaching from others to lind the right things to
say about him as a man. We have seen for ourselves. And may we say right og
that what we have seen has been so good that we sincerely regret not having
seen more of him sooner. Quiet industry always pays off, and because john is
a consistent plugger we are sure of his doing a great deal very well in the days
that lie ahead of him.

George has been with us only a year, but that was more than enough time
to allow us to sample his industrious habits and agreeable good nature. His
success in overcoming the obstacle which the difference in languages always
brings has really brought him to our attention. His skill in Math certainly did
not suffer in any way from any deficiency. His heart is set on engineering and
we have no doubt that the native endowments with which he has been blest,
together with the habits of persistent application which he has developed are
more than enough to guarantee him success in his chosen profession, The best
of luck pursue you George, and catch up with you, and open the way for you

has made the commitments that ordinarily go with moving back and forth be-

role for all it is Worth and the Villanovans have learned to appreciate his Value
as contact man in many a Worthy social event. just what his plans are we do
not know. However, it would not surprise us if he were to turn a hobby into
something profitable. He is really quite an accomplished flyer. If geniality of
disposition can pave the Way for diHicult accomplishments, our John should
move through obstacles like a breeze. That he may do so is the wish of all of us.

Milt came to us from the United States Marines. That he saw service on
lwo Jima is in itself no small tribute. He has been in very far places and knows
how rugged living and dying can be. But there is little evidence of all that
experience has taught him of the rougher side of life in the daily comings and
goings through which he mingles with all of us at Villanova. For this fortunate
gift of camaraderie we respect him, too. Wherever and whenever he could
throw his weight around to help the progress of things at Villanova he has done
so ungrudgingly. As he moved into the attack in any game or studious pursuit
we always felt that it was good to have him on our side. In fact we are sorry
that he was not with us longer. The best of luck be yours Milt!

Malvern Prep way back in Pennsylvania was Iimmy Sims' school before he
came to the Ojai. Of course, inasmuch as Malvern is also under the direction of
the Augustinians, Jimmy needed no introduction to the methods of Villanova.
At present his home is in Salinas, but he was born in Ohio. That bit of
geography should impress us with the fact that Jimmy has already managed to
get round quite a bit. Despite his quiet and unassuming character he is really
something of a cosmopolite. He does not try to draw attention to himself, but a
half-expressed vvitticism full of a unique pungency takes care of that and more.
We are informed that he has his heart set on engineering of an aeronautical
Havor. Whatever his intentions are, he needs only half a chance to succeed.
There is no Possible success that We do not Wish for him.

When Dick pulled out in his senior year and, like his father before him,
went off to join the Marines, he was quite a small lad with the grit and character
of a man. He needed all that nature and grace had given him in the way of
intestinal fortitude, and there is no doubt in the minds of those who saw him
grow up that he made good use of what he had. Reticence seems to have been
somewhat of a fetish with Dick, and still is. But it would be a grave mistake to
confuse his silence with a lack of understanding. I-le knows things, and places
and people. We experience an added thrill at the prospect of numbering among
us a member of the First Division-one who faced up and ahead in grim days.
May his courage never falter, and may his glory ever shine!

class, jim has been quite a factor for the last four years. Twice he has held the
presidency of the class, and for his senior year was chosen by the student-body
for the highest elective office in the school, president of the Student Council.
He is a stickler for principle, regardless of consequences. This fact Writes
character all over him, and the courtliness and helpfulness that are found in
him always make him a man among men. Where integrity is of the essence
Jim is out in front. To the inner worth of which we speak he has the added
good fortune of fine skill on the gridiron and on the tennis court. His studies
have been given a very full measure of attention, too. ln fact his acceptance by
the university of his home State is indication of the fact that with Jim first things
come first. We know his worthg may it be the good fortune of many more to
find it out.

Signed: CLASS OF ,47
Iune ISt, 1947
Cathering in the lounge of the Waldorf Astoria on the eve of their reunion
banquet, June first, 1967, we see a group of ,47 graduates. Coming out of the
lobby is a very distinguished foursome: Admiral Collins of the Naval Board of
Operations, Dick Hamilton, Standard Oil's vice-president in charge of service
stations, Neil Dorward, manager of the New York Ciants, and Marcus Crahan,
well-known novelist, whose epic "Duel on the Doorstepf, is now being published
by Crubb and Hack in nineteen volumes.
Farther over in the center of the room is an earnest aggregation engaged in
conversation. It includes Denny Barnard of the National Soil Conservation
Board, Bene Biane, now sleek, plump, and prosperous, the brains behind the
Franco-American Wine trust, Carlos Arosemena, Panamanian Minister of Pub-
lic Safety, and his brother, lusto, director of the Panama Liquor Combine. They
are all sorry to learn that lohn Chapek, the head of a chain of hardware stores
stretching from Alaska to Ecuador, has not found it possible to attend. But who
is that coming through the door? No, it can't be-but it is. Don Backe, prom-
inent Saticoy planter, and nationally known founder of the Saticoy Volunteer
Fire Department is in the lead. Making a suitable background for such an
impressive entrance is Steve Laubacher, famous philanthropist. After making
several fortunes on beans he is now devoting all his time to the instruction of
Descending from his elaborate suite on an upper floor Jake Menne comes
down to greet the newcomers. Of course it is common knowledge by now that
he has gone far in more ways than one-he is now the president of the Ajax
Farm Insurance Company, and his duties keep him in the Creat City. On his
heels another classmate of lake's, one whom he often lunches with, John Parsons
arrives. He, too, has done quite well. After an energetic apprenticeship he has
become the manager of Saks New York Store. It seems that he is attracting
world-wide attention with some exotic designs of women's sportswear featuring
Now outside is heard the roar of a great diesel truck as it comes to a stop
directly in front of the Waldorf. It is no ordinary sight. It is really a trailer of
huge proportions. Out of it bounds Bill Copley, and right behind him we see
Phil Hoeffer. They are both immaculate in evening dress-they have both done
very well in the "Copley Trucking Enterprises, lncorporatedf' It would seem,
froml the package he brings along, that Bill is taking no chances on the food
Promptly on the dot of eight olclock the group repairs to the most exclusive
dining-room. Ah! here comes Sims and Jacobs fresh from their day-long efforts
on the Exchange. They seem in high spirits, and well they may be-they have
just driven Morgan and Kuhn and Loeb out of business. Now as the party is
getting seated all pause in mid-air, as it were, for there has suddenly been framed
by the door a portly figure, Milton Poulos. Spontaneously a cheer goes up. His
chain of restaurants must be good. Look at Milt!
The bubble of voices suddenly grows strangely silent as the tune played
by an unseen band becomes recognizable. "The Eyes of Texas" heralds the
arrival of United States Senator Tarpey as he enters in white tie and tails. Pre-
ceding him is his faithful bodyguard, Lynch. The latter gently pushes the crowd
back and at the same time slips into the hand of everyone a handbill boosting
Tarpey for president. In the senator's party is a rather unobtrusive man who
seems to be of some importance, however, judging from the presence of the
New York Chief of Detectives and some of his assistants. It is Dick Yant, head
of the Ventura County Police, and quite a famous sleuth.
A slight commotion at the door of the banquet hall results in the forcible
ejection of Bridgehouse. He had argued his way this far, but as he arose to
denounce the banqueteers someone stole his soap box, and he was hustled off
in the general direction of Union Square.
Towards the end of the meal the Cardinal Archbishop of Mexico City,
Hector Ferreira, with his secretary, Monsignor Pallares dropped in for a mo-
ment. As they inquired about old companions and noticed that there were some
absentccs some messages of regret were brought forward and His Eminence
graciously consented to read them. Captain Flynn is in the Orient on business
with Admiral Walker, Faries, Clothes Commissioner for California, cannot get
away, and Czuleger finds the siutation on his huge ranch in Nevada too insistent
to permit him to get away. There was little speechmaking, as we all had a date
at thelgelasco to see Ted Harris in "Almost S7,H a play written and produced by
And so came to an end a reunion of the Class of '47. It was full of rem-
iniscing, full of good cheer, full of new appreciation of one another.

The fog is clearing and we see the progress made by our class in the last nine months.
It's unbelievable how the time has passed here at school. This year has meant much to
us scholastically and otherwise. Like other classes we, too, had our additions, namely:
Mike Callaghan, Hawkins, Cilpatrick, Phelan, Sant, Chinello, Hernandez, Cortaire,
Story, Colenor, Buchholz, Crain, and Cunha. These follows have given the class a new
lift through their wonderful spirit of cooperation. It has been unfaltering at all times.
Once we got really set we chose our leaders. This has become a rather important task
in recent years at Villanova, because of the heavy responsibility that devolves on the
leaders of the respective classes. In our elections Don Walsh, Joe Scholle, jack Croal, and
Dave Eckenroth stepped into the offices of president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer
respectively. The Student Council claimed Pete Dailey for its vice-presidency. This was
hitting a new high for the class in representation.
The sport scene opened before us and we quickly took our place on the set. We
provided a goodly number of athletes on the HA," "B," and NCD squads in all branches of
sport and in football, and baseball several Juniors were very prominent. For example in
football we had Dailey, and in baseball it was Bold, Cavanaugh, and Salazar.
Socially we feel we reaped new successes for the class. The Christmas and Final
Dances were ours. In addition we had the now famous Prom in the Hollywood-Roosevelt
Hotel. This really crowned our efforts.
Due to the careful guidance and encouragement of the Faculty the Class of '48 has
been molded into a well organized and smoothly-functioning group. We have the con-
fidence that comes with three years of close association in a great variety of endeavors.
We hope we have the humility of willingness to learn. Upon this, we know, depends the
great success we look for as seniors.
This yearis sophomores have come a long way from the days when they were hesitant
and timid freshmen. They have blossomed out in school life to an extent which has forced
the other classes to sit up and take notice. Early in the year Blake Lyle and Charlie Wray
were chosen president and vice-president respectively of the class with George Dow as
secretary-treasurer. Under the direction of their moderator, Father Kiernan, with the
beginning of the second semester the accumulation of funds for their annual dance was
begun. A number of disappointments finally petered out and the dance was held immedi-
ately after the Easter holidays. On the admission of everybody at Villanova there has been
nothing to excel it at Villanova in many a year, and very few social events have come
anywhere near it in beauty and elhciency.
On the playing fields the Class of ,49 was not behind in the number and quality of
its representatives. For example we had Murman playing half-back on the Varsity,
Guimoye, Doud, Locke, and Barbeau with Murman in basketball. In baseball again it was
Murman with Doud, Lynch, Wray, Fisher and Dow. Unquestionably the sophomores
have had quite a year. The athletic endeavors, however, have not taken up all their time,
as the high grades of many members of the class show.
But wait until the sophomores are full-fledged juniors! What would you think of
their putting on a Mardi Gras? Well it is a definite possibility. Of course they intend to
make all previous Junior Proms look sick. This is a class with very big ideas, and the will
to carry them through.
If we were to begin this record of our class by saying that we didn't get a chance to
do very much this year, it might seem that we were feeling sorry for ourselves. However,
if we were to add to this remark that we have the idea that we shall make up for it in
our sophomore year, no doubt it would sound as if we had very deep-laid plans. And that
is very true-we have all sorts of plans. Naturally they are not on the drawing board as
yet, but we know now what we can do, and we are just hoping for an opportunity.
Now it would be wrong to imagine that we did nothing thus far. Actually we came
out of the mists that covered us last September. Besides we contributed a number of men
to the football squad. In fact lim Walsh played Varsity football the whole season. In
addition to him we can mention Vanoni, Scott, Zaragoza, Hartman, and Palrang. Again
in basketball we succeeded in placing .lim VValsh on the UB" team, while the "CH squad
was made up entirely of freshmen. So it is clear that we are already becoming a force to
consider in the life of the school.
We are very lucky in having good officers at the head of our class. We have Joe
Zaragoza, Bob Theisen, Nlyles Steamian, and Dan Froehle as president, vice-president,
secretary, and treasurer respectively. With them at our head we feel unified now and we
are no longer bewildered as we were when we came last year.
We don't like to brag, but, if you think that the classes ahead of us have found
themselves and gone on to accomplish great things for Villanova, just wait until you read
the record three years from now of the Class of '5o.

With the return of Fred Price as Director of Physical Education at Villanova all eyes
were focused on the Wildcat Varsity. Hampered by the lack of experienced backfield
talent Coach Rice did an amazing job with the Blue and White. As the team shaped up
it looked like this: Chapek, fullback, Hamilton and Backe at the halves, and Dailey at
quarter. For the line we had Laubacher and Friel at the end positions, Crahan and Mur-
phy as tackles, Dorward and Cavanaugh at guard, and Tarpey at center. Supporting these
men were a number of substitutes who in relief work, and at times, for one reason or
another, did a full-time job.
ln the very first game we went all out for a win and got it. The victim was Santa
Paula, and the score was 13-6. The first quarter looked like a stalemate, until suddenly
Backe intercepted a forward pass and raced sixty yards to pay dirt. From there on it was
all Villanova for the remainder of the half. Dailey on a quarterback sneak put over another
one in the third period. This was really beginning right.
The second game, with Cal-Prep was begun very auspiciously until the second
stringers, who had started the fracas, yielded to the first team. Almost immediately they
drove across two tallies and from there on it could have been a romp. One of these touch-
downs was called back because of an infraction of the time limit. Once the second half
got under way things began to pop. First, Backe broke into the clear through guard and
ran sixty-five yards to a touchdown. Shortly after that Dailey flipped a pass to Laubacher
over the line for another counter. Then Dick Hamilton eager "to get into the act" just
broke off tackle and ran forty yards only to have the effort go for nothing. This was a
mistake on somebody's part, because on the very next play Dick went one better by ripping
straight through center and over for the final score. 26-o was not so bad, but as the sequel
shows it did us no good.
Iourneying to Los Angeles for our next contest we ran into a surprise. Black Foxe
turned out to be a much underrated outfit, or perhaps we might say that we had over-
rated ourselves. In the beginning of the game the cadets played us to a standstill. And so
it went with little to console us in the first half until Dailey shook himself loose and
went seventeen yards to score. In the second half the cadets caught our secondary napping
and put another one over. This put them out in front. Now we had to fight, and we did.
Unfortunately we found ourselves three inches from the goal-line when the whistle blew.
13-6 was not so bad, but it never should have happened.
Simi was our next opponent. Backe began in a somewhat unorthodox fashion by
running seventy yards on the kick-off to a touchdown through the whole Simi outfit.
Shortly afterwards Hamilton took a lateral from Dailey and ran thirty yards to another
tally. Now the Red and Gold dug in and we got nowhere. As the second half began Simi
made a mistake: they made a touchdown. From there on it was murder: Dailey on a
hidden-ball play went thirty-five yards to the end zone, Hamilton now sprinted in and out
of the whole outfit for sixty yards only to have the play called back. Now it seemed we
were playing the referee, judging from the penalties. Despite all the commotion Chapek
managed to push over another. Final score Villanova 26, Simi 6.
Nordholf our old and honored rival came next on the calendar. The result showed
that the honeymoon was over. We were trounced thoroughly zo-o. In extenuation it may
well be observed that We were playing without the services of four of our first-string men.
However, we can hardly allege this as the only reason for our defeat. Some of the out-
standing features of the game were the following: We started the game with twenty yards
of penalities on off-sides. This did not help, especially when it was followed by a fumble
which led to a touchdown. However, the outmanned Wildcats were not licked yet. Nord-
hoff could not score the rest of the half and the Cats came within an ace of tallying
themselves, ending the half on the five yard line. In the second half the Rangers scored
twice against a worn-out Villanova team. An interception accounted for the last score.
We journeyed to Carpinteria next for a crucial league game that was to determine
our chances for the championship. We did not do so well. The final score was Carpinteria
18, Villanova o. In the first part of the game we did nothing but punt and the boys from
the shore town managed to score but once. We switched suddenly to straight football and
brought the ball down wifhin a fraction of a score only to have our efforts nullified by a
penalty. The fourth quarter saw the Cats weaken suihciently to have the Warriors push
over two more counters. Laubacher's great punting and the protection given him were the
two bright spots in the Blue and White Day.
Inspired by something, we ran into the Santa Barbara Catholic team and took them
over. The Cardinals had to kick in the beginning after failing to make the necessary
yardage. As soon as we got the ball we booted it right back and Friel rocked the runner
so hard he fumbled it only to have Jim Tarpey scoop it up. On the next play Ade Lynch
a star of former years just kind of naturally carried it over. In the second quarter the
Cardinals went out in front 7-6. But Lynch was at it again and put over another one.
That was the end of the scoring.
The record for the season was not too impressive as records go, but no team left the
field without a healthy respect for the grit and know-how of the Cats.
Aided by the return of four varsity players who had taken part in the Los Angeles
tournament the Wildcats took shape something like this: Collins, Ulloa, and Backe, for-
wards, Friel, center, Laubacher and Cavanaugh, guards. They started the season by play-
ing a close second to Nordhoff in opening League tournament.
Then they went into a slump and lost to the Alumni from Oxnard, and twice to the
Ventura Preps. Finally pulling out of it they waxed Simi, with Collins hitting the bucket
for 27 points. The Cats pulled a hot one. out of the fire by beating Ventura Iunior High,
only to follow it up with a loss to Santa Barbara Catholic by one point. Thacher was
trampled along with Carpinteria. It was a different story, however, when we met Nordhoff
in the game to decide the league championship. This was followed by the best game of
the season, when we trimmed Lompoc. In the Catholic Tournament we lost to St.
Monica's after a good tussle. A rough and tumble fracas with Moorpark found us on the

The team has had a rather poor season because of a number of reasons. For one
thing we have been without the help of such stalwarts as Iacobs, Ferreira, and Arose-
mena. The team has looked like this: First Doubles, Crahan and Tarpey, C. Arosemena
and Crain second doubles, Collins, first singles, Temple, second singles, and Sindorf,
We lost our first encounter to a tough opponent, Nordhoff, 3-I. One match was
called on account of darkness. Carpinteria came next and it was our turn to do the dirt.
We really poured it on the Vlfarriors 4-1. Simi did its perennial stunt of defaulting. What-
ever chances we had of winning the league championship went out the window when we
met Thacher. Not enough practice is the explanation. They beat us 3-2.
The ex erienee of this vear's com etition should av off later on. New material is
P , P P .
here, but it must get the all-important experience. We are really building for the future-
even in tennis.
Our baseball season usually gets under way so late in the scholastic year that about
all we can really do in an Annual is give a pre-season view of the situation, plus a few
observations on the earlier trial games and such that manage to happen before the presses
start to roll.
For the season of 1947 the Varsity squad is made of the following individuals in
the positions noted: Dailey and Crahan, catchers, Chapek, Ade Lynch, and Sims, pitchers,
Murman, first base, Cavanaugh, second base, C. Arosemena, short-stopg B. Barnard, third
base. Out in the greener pastures we find Bold, D. Barnard, and Sims. The Substitutes
are Salazar, Dow, Ferreira, and Biane.
The HB" troupe is made up of Palrang and Hartman alternating at hurling and
playing the lirst bag, C. Doud, second baseg Froehle, short, Fisher, third base, and in
the outfield, Barbeau, B. Lynch, and Borchard.
We have the teams, the coach, the ability, the courage. Now all we need is the
record of some victories-just enough for the championship. Whatever may be found, here
are the men responsible. We can only hope it will be better than we dream.
The usual teams who are listed on the Valley roster will again be our opponents.
We do not know very much about them-we'll know plenty after we have met them.
However, Thacher always fields good baseball teams, Nordholf plays over its head When-
ever it stacks up against Villanova, Carpinteria almost looks like "big time" all the time,
Cal-Prep is a sleeper. So herels hoping!

An organization intended to promote the morale of the student-body is largely de-
pendent for its efficiency on the qualifications of its members. That is Why all members
of the Student Council are picked men. They are either the choice of the students voting
in assembly, or they are the elected representatives of their respective classes. Every selec-
tion is subject to Faculty approval. All this care is necessary because the responsibilities
of the Council are not small ones.
The organization has been in existence now for two years, and in that short time
has come a long way in promoting the spirit and honor of the school. With every suc-
ceeding day there has come a realization of the need of high integrity in the members.
The supervisory role exercised constantly over various school activities has been conducive
to much smoother procedure. As the promoter of such programs as those concerned with
intra-mural sports the work of the Council has been invaluable.
More and more the students of Villanova are being impressed with the responsibility
they must individually carry as members of the school. Much wisdom has been gained as
a result of the past year's effortsg much more vvill undoubtedly be acquired next year.

The Lettermen's Club has been in existence for several years and its purpose is to
give all those who have carried the name of Villanova to new glories through their devo-
tion to school sports a measure of appreciation and a renewed sense of that team-work
which has made their successes on the field of conflict possible. They have impressed
upon them through their being elected to membership in the organization that the same
strenuous effort that went into the winning of the coveted "V" must be followed up by
consistent dignity in wearing it.
Dick Hamilton has been the head of the Club during the past year, and under his
leadership some very interesting social affairs in the way of dances have been held. The
membership every year grows larger and the activities no doubt will increase in diversity
and magnitude next year.
Another year for the Lariat Club is drawing to a close and the Club can point with
pride to its many activities and accomplishments over the last several months. The mem-
bership has numbered thirteen with each man possessing his own horse. The enthusiasm
of the members has been very much in evidence all year, and under their moderator,
Father Monte, they have succeeded in improving the pasture conditions appreciably.
Fences have been repaired, and new ones erected. Final plans for the construction of a
roping arena are going forward. It is to be located in the neighborhood of the Ranch
House. Several new corrals have been erected and there has been a pronounced improve-
ment of conditions in their vicinity.
So much activity here at school has taken place with a view to building up the
material facilities that scant opportunity has been available for trips into the mountains.
However, it has been possible to take some excursions in small groups and one or two of
the entire organization. The trip to Rancho Casitas was truly memorable.
-lust as soon as school was resumed in September, Father Monte, the moderator of
the Rifle Club called the members together. In addition invitations were extended to
those students who were interested, and as a result the membership of the Club has
risen to about thirty. Dues were collected and a great deal of ammunition was purchased
from the Army for the use of the Club. Teams of eight were organized and target prac-
tice got under way in earnest.
Several teams were entered in the William Randolph Hearst Trophy contest. The
First team included Joe Scholle, Hamilton, Chapek, Bridgehouse, and Garcia. In addition
to the regular practices several hunting trips by members in small groups were taken.
Moreover a number of National Rifle Association awards of various degrees were made
to the members.
All in all the past year has been a most satisfactory one for the Club, and under the
efficient direction of the present oH5cers, Charlie Wray, Ben Story, Dow and Ioe Scholle,
president, vice-president, secretary, and executive oflicer, respectively, the work should
increase and improve.
