KIRK, ' A.M., o.s.A. fx'----' Headmaster and Prior if m My dear Students: As your headmaster reviews student events of the past year endogenous with their lofty aspirations, fulfillments, and disappointments, he is looking with satis- faction on the Iaurels the members of Villanova's graduating class brought to their Alma Mater. On the gridiron, the hardwood, diamond, track, courts and stage, and in the pool, rallies, music, oratory, iournalism, banquets, benefits, crusades, missions, assemblies, socials, council, dormitory, classroom, and chapel you have contributed a measure of honor to Villanova. Villanova is proud of you and your achievements. Conferring your diploma with an emphatic commendation externally does not express fully the inward sentiment that we actually experience. We regret seeing you march from the campus. We have tried to mold your mind, character, muscles and conscience. We know your worth now. Like fond parents glancing after their sons parading to war, we wish we could enioy having you around longer. But off to higher climbs and loftier fields you must direct your steps. Your future will be important to you and others. But when it all comes to an end, it will not even be noted by possible observers on a high flying stratocruiser. How trivial are man's works here! Nothing will endure but the spiritual results of your life. Think chiefly of this! May God benignly bless you, shelter you from dangers, and lend a lamp to your feet to light your paths. Farewell, and Godspeed. Very Rev. Wilbert R. Kirk, O.S.A. Y' Q x W- , . v lim - Mwst X 1' t t . ,M P- ms- ., wax fuk x- H nc , 'f--.xi.,.Qi.,- sf i.1f'9-Qs.

Fortmeier, J, Ossorio The Junior Class, having the distinction of being the smallest class in the school, tries to make up in spirit what it lacks in size, Scholastically, we are average, and we are proud of the few members of our number who do represent us often on the Honor Roll. Athletically, our class has certainly made a name for itself. Two members have attained All-League honors and others help provide the backbone of the school teams. Other activities were not neglected by our class. The Tidings drive, due prin- cipally to one of our very spirited members, was a success for us. The production of "Brother Orchid" had several Juniors in the cast and behind the stage. The Missions were not neglected by us, the Sodality gained many members from our ranks. Socially, we added to the school's social calendar with our Christmas Ball. The final dance of the year, the Blue and White Ball, was also sponsored by the Juniors. In the difficult year that we know lies ahead of us as Seniors, the Class of '56 will continue to strive to make up in spirit what it lacks in size. It hopes to leave behind a reputation for true school spirit in its support of Villanova, both the school and the activities which go to make up school life here at Villanova. When we arrived here two years ago, great things were prophecied for us. We have now reached the mid-point of our high school career, and it is an ex- cellent time to stop and take stock of the situation. As the keynote we can point with pride to the outstanding record of scholar- ship which the Class of '57 exhibits. A third of our class has consistently achieved the magic "B" average necessary for Honor Roll standing, even though we were dealing with subiects more difficult than previously encountered. The field of athletic endeavor was not neglected because of academic application. Sophomores have been numbered on the teams of every sport which is played here at Villanova. Our budding lawyers have been seen in Senior Court sessions and our potential orators were representing us in the public speaking contest. As future Catholic gentlemen, many of us enrolled in the Sodality and faithfully attended the meet- ings. Socially, we not only supported school dances by our attendance, but in April we sponsored the Sophomore Cotillion. Our support of the Missions also was noteworthy. We look back on the past year with satisfaction, and we look ahead to our remaining years at Villanova with hope. We have two years left, two years in which we plan to leave an undying record-a record for the greater honor and glory of God, of Villanova, and of the Class of 1957. left to Right, Bottom Row: R.

The thought of starting out at a new school aroused curiosity and wonderment. But soon the newness wore off and except for the continual reminders of the Seniors, we felt like veterans. Class elections were held once we got acquainted. We chose Anthony Pozos, as President, Larry Bralliar, Vice-President, Dennis Niblo, Secretary, Arthur Hoover, Treasurer, and John Demaret as our Student Council Representative. Scholastically, about a third of our class was regularly represented on the Honor Roll. One of our number represented Villanova in the Lions Club Speech Contest. The coaches became well acquainted with many of our class as we tried out for the various teams. Many made the J.V. football squad. The Bee and Cee basketball teams numbered many Freshmen. Freshmen were the mainstay of the J.V. baseball team, and the track squad had its share of frosh. We swelled the ranks of the Sodality and we overwhelmingly supported the Missions. We attended the dances and we cheered on the Wildcats. Now as we look over the past year, we see how fast it has gone for us. We sincerely hope that our next three years will be as enjoyable as this, and during these years we will try to uphold and keep the fine name our class has attained so it will redound to the honor of our school. We are the Class of 1958! 1 N - I ix fr.. 5 S x Zavixi 1l 1-65.

Brallior, R. Stewart, W. Davis, E. Tweet, J. Burke, E. Martinez, Coach Salter. With the opening of school in September, Coach Salter found about twenty-five hopeful aspirants on hand for football. Most of these had been on the varsity squad of the previous year which had not had too impressive a season. They proved to be the nucleus of a hard fighting eleven which ended the season with a record of five wins and two losses. The season opener pitted the Wildcats against the Moorpark Musketeers. Plagued by penalties and suffering opening game litters, the Villanovans dropped the game 20-13. Despite the defeat, such men as Martinez, Stewart, Ginella, and Schlotman were outstanding in their play. Taking on Santa Clara next, the 'Cats found themselves, and hold- ing the Saints scoreless, they went on a rampage to tally 28 points. Again it was Martinez who led the team to victory. It was the beginning of a four-game winning streak for the Wildcats. A trip to Cate the next week resulted in an easy 34-7 decision for the Blue and White from Villan- ova. Hosting the Simi eleven the following week, the Wildcats tallied the second play of the game and went on to a 33-7 win. Traveling to Santa Barbara Catholic, the var- sity eleven led by the fine quarterbacking of Stew- art, after a slow start, managed to rip open the Cardinals' defense. Martinez went wild in this game to score the four touchdowns and one of the three conversions. Sorem, Fuller, and Hernan- dez corfstantly made gains through the Cardinal line. The Wildcat hard charging linemen, led by Ginella, Daily and Buenzli, helped to gain the 27-6 victory. Continued on page 36 'ln Stewart plunges over tor a touchdown with a quarterback sneak in the 33-7 rout of Simi. Under the lights of Carpinteria stadium, the Wildcats met the Carpinteria Warriors in what was the Tri-Valley League game of the year. Some 1500 spectators witnessed the two evenly matched teams battle it out. Off to an early seven point lead, the Wildcats looked good. But Carpinteria soon crossed the goal but failed to convert. The third quarter Martinez went over to make it 14-6. The Warriors came back to score. The fourth quarter the 'Cats led 14-12. The Carpinteria eleven finally took the lead for the first time with a quick score. They led 18-14. The Wildcats started a steady drive and made it within yards of the Warrior goal when a fumble and penalty stopped them. Time ran out before the Villanovans could score. Deiected and defeated, despite their fine play, the Wildcats left the field on the short end of the final 18-14 score. "We've got the bucket," was the chant after the annual Villanova-Nordhoff rivalry. The Wild- cats brought home the traditional bucket after .94-A.:. Martinez and Sorem, co-captains in the Nordhoft game, pair up for an end run. The Wildcats won, 18-0. losing it last year to the Rangers. The 'Cats' de- fense did not let the Rangers score at all, while our offense found big holes in the Nordhoff line and took advantage of them. Stewart tallied two of the touchdowns and Martinez crossed the goal for one. The whole team magnificently showed their ability and determination to win in this last game of the season. The '54 gridiron season was the best Villanova has had since the Tri-Valley League was formed. Three of the squad, Martinez, Stewart and Ginella were named to the All-League team. Five, Bralliar, Sorem, Fortmeier, Daily and A. Torres, were given honorable mention on the team. Martinez led the league in scoring with 82 points and he averaged 9.9 yards each carry. It was truly a great Villanova team, certainly a reflection of Coach Salter's coaching abilities and the spirit which we hope will bring to Villanova future teams of such stature and ability.

The Junior Varsity, starting out the season under the supervision of Coach Fred Rice, who was succeeded in mid-season by Coach Bill Zap- pone, finished with a record of two wins, two losses and a tie. With the exception of eight re- turning lettermen, the Junior Varsity was, as a whole, made up of inexperienced Freshmen and Sophomores. The Kittens encountered the Santa Clara Saints. The Saints came from behind in the final quarter to end the game with a 6-6 tie. Next the J.V.'s shut out Cate with a 13-0 victory. In this game John Carr made the first tally by recovering a fumble in the end zone. ln the last quarter Art Hoover passed to Muellenhoff, who ran 20 yards for the final touchdown. The Kittens met Cate for a second time and again came out victorious by 27-6. Twice in this game touchdown plays were nullified by penalties. Hoover, Muellenhoff, Ritter, and Neal Johnson played very well. Although the Kittens had great spirit, they bowed to Carpinteria by a score of 20-6. Villan- ova's only tally was made by Bob Amouroux, who fell on a fumble in Carp's end zone. Finally, they played Nordhoff in the annual rivalry to end the season. The J.V.'s were unable to break through the Rangers' defense and were defeated by an unfortunate 12-O. Maybe the Kittens didn't end their season with a very good record, but they did show some out- standing players. Art Hoover, Fred Ritter, Dave Bryson, and Neal Johnson did quite well in the backfield, while Bill Muellenhoff, Bob Amouroux, Francisco Torres, Bill Berg, and Joe lnzalaco held the line. Most of these men will be back with us next year when we expect a much better record. ggi? -5-1 1 : ,gsm , -.4-I' .19 1 X, 1 ' VJ!

Loughman, R. Stewart, J, Ravetti, R. Hernandez, Father Gutierrez, Athletic Director. The Villanova Varsity basketball team opened the season by participation in the Nordhoff Tour- nament. After defeating Moorpark in the opener, they dropped a close game to Santa Barbara Catholic 46-45. This dropped them from the tour- ney. Another tournament at Santa Ynez followed and the Wildcats grabbed third place in the rankings. After the Christmas holidays league play began and the Villanovans took Moorpark 59-49. Coach Zappone's veteran cagers then went on to defeat in succession Nordhoff 55-52, Simi 59-41, and Thacher 50-32. This ended the first round of play in the southern division of the league. The beginning of the second round brought the Wildcats their only league defeat .as their tradi- tional rivals, the Nordhoff Rangers, downed the 'Cats 72-59. But this didn't stop the Villanovans as they went on to take Simi 54-41, Moorpark 40-37, and Thacher 60-40. With a seven win, one loss record in league play this brought the Wild- cats the southern division crown of the Tri-Valley League. A playoff with the Santa Barbara Card- inals, northern division champs, was necessary to determine the league champion. Held at Santa Barbara, the league playoff matched the Wildcats against a team which had beaten them three times in non-league play. But this was not to hold back the Villanovans as they took an early lead and held it at half time I9-l4. The third quarter found the Cardinals catching up and pulling ahead, but the Wildcats soon rallied to surge ahead. With the final minutes running out, the Cardinals again put on a drive and tied the score with but seconds remaining. As the last few seconds ticked off, a Cardinal dropped in a quick shot and the Santa Barbarans took the game 45-43. Two Wildcats made the All-League team. One of them, Bralliar, had scored 379 points during the season. The other, Stewart, had tossed in 364 points. Ravetti, team captain had always played steady ball. Martinez, Sorem and Hernandez were reliable when called on to give their share towards victory. Again, as in football, we had a team which will be long remembered at Villanova. -- 1-+- X if sl IMA I B Al ,f 5 x x X 6 Q I fi-1 sw x C i 4. ! K .

This year's "Cees" acquired second place in league competition by winning 5 games and losing 3 games. Although it was thought that the Kittens would win the championship, they were handicapped ' , , A by inexperience. However, when they lost games gt A- Q b it was usually by a thin margin. A if , The Kittens really showed their flying colors ,. .fi V l when they trampled Nordhoff by the score of ,,,,,,,,,..u.....,..,..... . 55-30. ln this game Freshman Art Hoover scored Ig ff' 5 I 2l points. The "Cees" then dropped two games to Simi, 32-28, and Moorpark, 31-30. Their spirit undaunted by these two defeats, the "Cees"' came home to down Thacher 29-26, and Nordhoff 34- 21. Getting off to a cold start in a return engage- ment with league champions Simi, the Kittens were turned back 24-2l in a thrilling overtime game. The "Cees" ended up the season with victories over Moorpark 42-38, and Thacher 39-30. Special mention should be given to Art Hoover, Bob France, Bob Amouroux, Tom Vett and John Carr, all of whom united to give Villanova one of the best seasons in recent years. The subs were also very important and many times came through with a much needed basket in the final seconds. ln his third year as "Cee" coach, Mr. Salter de- serves the applause and praise of the entire student body for his untiring work building boys today, for tomorrow's varsity.

Coach Dick Salter has whipped the 1955 edition of the Villanova Wildcat nine into a powerhouse team. ln league competition they have taken three straight by decisive scores. ln practice games they have shown the same power against non-league teams. These early season results augur a cham- pionship team at Villanova this season. The pitching staff is especially strong with Ron Stewart already sporting a 3-O record in league play. Seniors Bill Davis and Paul Springer are also on hand if Coach Salter needs them. "Chief" Da- vila is behind the plate and he also swings a mighty bat to drive in the runs. Bob Fortmeier, Fred Ritter, Bob Hernandez and Ed Martinez round out the infield. Chasing flys, we find John Bralliar, Jerry Mayo, and Nelson Sorem all contending for the left field spot. Alfonso Torres seems to be set in center, while Jack Ravetti roams in right field. The bench is strong with Art Hoover, Mike Parke, Dave Bryson, Carlos Torres and Francisco Torres ready to go in to plug any weak spots that may develop. Already Stewart has set a school record with his l7 strikeouts in the Simi game. He has received plenty of support from his teammates'bats and he has even aided his own cause with a hit now and then. Martinez, Davila, Hernandez, and Torres have been especially effective in their hitting. Coach Salter has few worries as he works out his squad these days. Still green in spots, he hopes they will come along and give him and Villanova the league championship which has been so elu- sive for Wildcat teams so far in the '54-'55 sports season. fa -uf . 1-1' al xx , Nd.

The Junior Varsity, with Coach Zappone at the helm, consists mainly of Freshmen and Sophomores. A large number of candidates turned out for the team and this gives hope that we will have good replacements for the departing varsity players next season. With only two games played so far this season, there is not much evidence as yet as to the true worth of the squad. The first game was a heart- breaking loss to Thacher 16-15. A second game on their home field found the Kittens coming from behind to defeat Moorpark ll-lO. ln both of these games, it was the excellent pitching of Bob Traviss which gave Coach Zappone great hope for many wins in the remaining games of the season. Outstanding at the plate so far, has been Jose Barona. He leads the team in hitting and he also serves well behind the plate as catcher. John Carr and Dennis Niblo show great promise and may possibly be ready for varsity play next year. Sharing the pitching chores with Traviss are Bob Amouroux, Tim Schlotman and Dennis Niblo. Lester March has been playing first and doing a good iob there. Other positions are still not definitely captured by any specific player since the season is still young. The team is eager and despite the loss marring their record, they have hopes of the league championship. With the yearbook going to press before the completion of the track season, there can be but a summary account of what appears to be a better than average track team. Already the cindermen have turned in impressive marks. Under the guide ance of Coach Zappone the three squads have developed well. To date the Bees seem to be the strongest. Neal Johnson and Terry Larrabee are fine sprinters. Ron Lopez, Bill Nugent, Andrew Alvarado and several others round out the Bee squad. The Cees have turned in some fine field per- formances by Bob France, Grant Dolan and John Carr. The Varsity is small but mighty. Tim Schlot- man does well in the shot put and the hurdles. An early season iniury has sidelined Jack Purl, last season's All-League nominee. He should be ready for the league meet in May and come through with a win in the mile. Tom Ginella, the squad workhorse, is doing well with the shotput. Lack of experience handicaps other varsity squad members. It can be safely said that with the experience and training that the next month will bring, the cindermen will be sure to walk off with a share in the honors and points at the coming league meet. The Bees have made an early start. The other squads need only follow their example. In all events, this should be a memorable track season for Villanova. Lett to Right, Bottom Row: J. Barone, F.

U Len to inure- holn P Absen' Villanova's netmen are small in number this year, but so far they have man- aged to win a few matches. With the loss of Coach Rice, Brother John has had to step in and give the boys a few pointers about the game. With consistent practice they should be able to take at least a second place in league competition. Returning from last year's squad there are two seniors, John Buenzli and Jim Burke. Buenzli's serve is his point getter. Burke does well in doubles. Also a veteran from last year's team is Bob France, who has improved greatly. He teams with Burke in the doubles. Newcomers Graeme Ossorio and Juan Salgado are taking their share of the sets and should improve as the season progresses. Jim Czuleger is a steady player, but as yet has not been in any competition matches. Dave Bryson recently ioined the squad and may give it the added strength it needs. With the Oiai Valley famed for its tennis players, Villanova hopes to share in that glory with her own outstanding players. Practice and perseverence should produce them, if not this year, then we hope it will be next season. wade -item? L. 3. ..,,. Om 1 .wx f" Left to right: J. Purl . M. Berry J. lnzalaco E.

The occa- sion was the Holy Hour commemorating the close ofthe Marian Year. Due to the zealous efforts of Father McGrath, the Sodality of Our Lady has flourished this year at Villanova. On the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, De- cember 8th, thirty-three new members were received into the Sodality. The day was further dedicated to the Blessed Virgin by a Holy Hour at Our Lady of the Assumption Church, Ventura, California. The St. Catherine Girls Academy Sodality also assisted at this Holy Hour commemorating the close of the l954 Marian Year. The primary purpose of the Sodality is spiritual-the honoring of the Blessed Mother of God. By this devotion to Our Lady the sodalist aids himself in living an exemplary Catholic life and better directs himself to his eternal goal. Villanova Sodality members gather with their moderator Father McGrath for their annual photograph.

Journalistic minded students have an opportunity to give bent to their talents in the school publications, The Prep Times, the monthly newspaper, and The Villan- ovan, the school yearbook. This 1955 edition of The Villanovan is the tangible result of their labors. lt is presented to the Student Body and friends of Villanova as a record in word and picture of the past school year. Though far from complete in its coverage, it is hoped it will be cherished more as the years go by, serving to recall a memorable year at Villanova. Through the past year the iournalism staff has also been regular in their pub- lication of The Prep Times. By means of this newspaper a monthly summation of campus news is presented and recorded for future reference. Villanova students attest to the popularity of the paper by their eagerness to receive it and their avidity in reading it. ' l 'wisil--Q l - ., us ..,.,A a l 5. Villanova students who prided themselves on their dramatic abilities had an opportunity to display their talents in the production "Brother Orchid." A popular play about gangsters and monks, it offered both comedy and dramatic sus- pense to the audiences. ln the lead as Brother Orchid was Tom France. ln supporting roles as gangsters were Jerry Mayo, Paul Springer, Jack Purl, and Tom Ginella, Tim Schlotman portrayed a bartender and Joe lnzalaco characterized an ltalian fruit vender, As Brothers in the drama were Frank Bacon, Jerry Lanyon, Milton Daily, and Byron Theurer.

Backstage John Buenzli handled the sets while Chris Weigman pulled the switches on the lights. Mike Farrell and Bob Niemeyer assisted be- hind stage. The audiences at both performances of the play were pleased and thoroughly enioyed the actors' superior characterizations of their roles. lt is to be hoped that the presentation of a dramatic produc- tion will be an annual campus activity at Villan- ova. T, France, T. Schlotman and J. lnzalaco re-enact a tense scene of "Brother Orchid." 5 sh x.-.
