This week We are confronted with a duty which we find of a light and par-
ticularly pleasing vein-the celebration of Junior Week. On an occasion of this
kind, coming as it does once in every college man's career, we take especial pride
in bidding the guests of the Junior Class a hearty greeting of hospitality and
The onerous duties demanded, and the time incurred in bringing to fulfillment
the issue devoflving upon us, we find-a means of presenting as the final develop-
ment of a series of advances in this line--THE BEST JUNIOR WEEK EVER.
To the guests of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-Nine, we bid
welcome and give assurance of the untold satisfaction which we have evinced in
your companionship and friendship.

Back to your haunts, O gloomy night,
Thy shadows fall on us, who seek
The calmness of that happy light
That smiles upon our junior week.
Come, come, those of you who despair
Of heavens priceless gifts and joy.
just hearken to Springs lyric air,
How sweet it beckons to each boy.
We welcome you, O pretty maids,
To enjoy our lawns and flowers,
And as your charm at sunset fades,
Have memory of these happy hours.
Hearts of youth are ever gay,
How happily they course along,
Dreaming lifes sweet joys away,
Amid the sweetness of love's song.
Nfisfortune came upon these walls,
And filled these happy hearts with pain
How deep upon our thoughts it falls,
O! may it never come again!
But come now, dry those tears away,
Lo, the chimes in the belfry ring,
Let sadness come another day,
This week we crown Prince joy, as King'

P " ing history.
2 Q our triumphs and downfalls we, of the junior class, narrate the follow'
l On a never to be forgotten day back in September, 1925, we arrived here
V from our respective homes, to take our place as another Freshman class at
l Villanova. We were more than simply "another Freshman class"-we were 1
the largest in number ever enrolled in the history of the institution of learning.
Our arrival was met with the customary "SophomorefFreshman" welcome,
namely, "Carry the trunk upstairs, Frosh," and "What's your name stupid?" and
many other familiar greetings. To say that we were abashed and highly indignant
would not sum up even partially our hurt feelings. We then turned out in
a body, or rather were turned out in a body, to receive our initiation into the
"Venerable and ancient order of the Hobble Gobblef' to make us part of
Villanova, to cherish its ideals and traditions, and incidentally to cause a
miniature panic in Bryn Mawr. We are not boasting when we venture to say
N that our class toold the initiation like men and then settled down to scholastic,
social and athletics affairs to start that long tedious climb to the positions where
l we could be properly called "true Villanovansf'
l After we survived our first baptism of fire, namely, the midfyear exams,
b we held our election of officers, to assume guidance of our affairs for the
5' ' remainder of our Freshman year we chose
Q J. KENNETH BROOKS, President
l JOHN GAULT, VicefP1esident
CORNELIUS P. MCCARTHY, Secretary
JAMEs JENKINS, Treasurer.
These officers proved valuable selections and served our class diligently and
successfully. Our principal social event that year was the Freshman Hop held in
May. This event went down in the annals of Villanova history as one of the
best Freshman Hops ever conducted. It was our first real chance to make good
and we can say, without fear of contradiction, that we succeeded in gaining our
end. At the close of our Freshman year we were justified, we believe, in bestowing
5 upon ourselves the title of "true Villanovansf'
In every branch of college life we were well represented. On the gridiron
we had approximately twenty classmates endeavoring to the best of their ability
to further Villanova's football fame. In Track, Baseball and Basketball, we find
more classmates making a splendid showing for the Blue and White. The number
of Freshmen in the college band was sufiicient proof of our musical talent. In
the cast of "Vision and Destiny," and other branches of dramatics, we again
find our class very well represented. Along scholastic lines it was evident that
l our class maintained the reputation we were acquiring rapidly as a promising
class of yearlings. With great pride we point to the fact that in our Freshman
year, Harry Stuhldreher and Ed. Hunsinger, former Notre Dame football luminf
aries, were obtained to guide the football destinies of our Alma Mater. X
So ended our Freshman year with a very important distinction. On May
8th, 1926, our class innovated a Freshman Day at Villanova. It was an out'
standing success and promises to become a tradition.

Our return in the fall of 1926 was marked by the enthusiasm and spirit
of the entire class, for we were determined to better the effort of our Freshman
year and looked forward joyously to the reception of the "incoming Froshf'
At the ICIISF meeting of the year we elected the following officers for our
Sophomore year: J. Kenneth Brooks, refelected as President, Charles Martin,
Vice President, John Ahern, Secretary, Austin Tighe, Treasurer.
Shortly afterward we tendered the reception to the Freshmen and the
initiation was a huge success, with its journey to Bryn Mawr the individual
"fire rider" handed out and numerous other details, which accounted for its
magniicent success. John Gault proved a capable chairman of the vigilace
Towards the close of our Sophomore year, plans were formulated for the
annual Sophomore Soiree, the committee appointed by the President consisted
of the following men: Austin Tighe, Chairman, Richard Denny, Anthony
Sellitto, Richard Schleisher, James McIntyre, Francis A. McNulty and Henry
Smith. This brilliant social event was more than successful-it was the turning
point of our class from supposed obscurity along this line into social prominence.
The hall was beautifully decorated with an inviting cool collection of plants,
leaves and flowers with the class colors, Green and White, conspicuously draped
amongst them. While the success of this affair was yet broadcast, our Sophomore
year came to a colorful close. This point marked the midline of our respective
The beginning of the following school year found most of us facing our
junior year at Villanova. The ambition, cofoperation, and sincerity, which had
marked our class for the last two years, was now more manifest than ever. The
realization we all had of the importance of the Junior year led us on to greater
hopes-tov further the interests of our class-sand to rightfully bear, now more
than ever, the title "true Villanovansf' We immediately held a meeting at
which general plans for our Junior year were discussed and, likewise, the election
of the officers and appointment of various committees. The officers elected are as
follows: Austin Tighe, President, Gene Reilly, VicefPresident, James Jenkins,
Treasurer, Richard Denny, Secretary. A committee was appointed to secure
the class rings, the committee was headed by J. Kenny Brooks. The class had
the rings in time for Christmas and, as a result, many a youthful heart fluttered
way back home. The class was perfectly satisfied with the workmanship of the
rings, and gave a rising vote of approval and of thanks for the committees
Upon our return after the Christmas holidays, a regular meeting was held
and plans adopted for the celebration- of the universally known junior Week.
This is what we, as Juniors, have been looking forward to since we were Freshmen.
It is the time when for one week, we will see only the social side of College life.
Plans have been formulated, committees appointed, every Junior has his shoulder
to the wheel, to make this junior Week one that will forever rest in the book
It is then, our most sincere hope, that in the activities of Junior Week,
everyone will find a glowing interest as we have had since our entrance as
Freshmen. We have learned to cherish, the ideals and traditions handed down
to us as real Villanovans and, as the years pass-the love for our Alma Mater
grows stronger. When we leave these cherished halls we will all have dear
memories that will comfort us as the years go by. We hope that as one of these
memories, Junior Week will be predominant.

gg every enterprise undertaken by Villanova College there has been
reflected a certain degree of individual consent to the opinion of the
majority that has always made for success. Nowhere can better proof
N5 "' of this fact be adduced than in the attitude of the class of '29. They
have evinced such an unusual aptitude for selecting the proper means to arrive
at a successful issue that the resent unior week celebration bodes fair not only
. , P . . .
to er etuate the traditions alread established b recedin unior classes, but
P P , Q Y I Y P s
also to erect a recedent in the histo of this event.
Junior week--although of recent origin, by reason of its frolicsome revelry
and the fact that it signifies an emancipation from the status of underclassmen
and presages the advent of approaching seniority, has grown in popularity to
such an extent that it has developed into the most important social function at
Villanova. This in itself is sufhcient evidence of the spirit with which this week
is welcomed. However, it is with a sense of satisfaction that is peculiarly our
own, that we point with pardonable pride to the spirit manifest this week-
the attitude of hospitality and comradeship displayed by the hosts of the occasion
to other classmen and to their guests.
It is in this manner that occasions of this type serve a twoffold purpose.
They first stimulate a bond of common agreement and friendship, produce a
feeling of goodwill and enrich our later recollections of College ties. Secondly,
they sound the depth of youth, give rein to the social obligations we incur, and
countenance a period of happiness and form as it were a nucleus for reflections
in after life.
This present Junior week marks the fourth annual festivity of this nature.
It has reached this, its senior anniversary by a series of steady development and
enlargement. A full week of social and athletic events to constitute their program
was first inaugurated by the class of '26. Previously, as far back as in 1922, a
three day affair was held and in subsequent years this schedule obtained. The
present Senior class developed the program of the week's festivities to such a
degree that the class of '29 has no mean task to emulate.
Realizing this, it was with extraordinary care and deliberation that we set
ourselves the taski of producing a more finished work. To the accomplishment
of this end we have supplied the earnest endeavors of the entire class and urged
on by a spirit of progressive development, we hope to present the ultimate in
matters of this kind. Aided as we have been by the efforts of the various com'
mittees, as well as by the goodwill of the entire student body, we have sufficient
assurance of the success of the week's program.
It is our sincere hope that to the guests of the week a measure of enjoyment
will accrue that will repay the efforts expended on the program-and that in
parting they may say, "It was the best junior week ever."

l As a befitting climax to our week of activities, we '
will on Friday evening, at the Academy of Music, l
hold our Junior Prom. To surpass any social func' l

occasion. There is only one junior Prom that a
college man may call his own, so to you fellow class' l
mates may you regard Friday the thirteenth as your l
lucky day. A surprise is to be given the guests in f

a member of the committee, which we hope will please all. Practical, serviceable I
i and unique is in short descriptive of them. 1
f Music will be furnished by Phil Napoleon and his Victor recording orchestra '
Z featuring the Memphis Five. The orchestra incomparable for our Prom. Enterf 7.
Ab taining features will be inaugurated and our ardent wish is that when the last
Y' strains of music will have faded away that you will be satisfied with our efforts,
- and that you will have had one of the best if not the Best Time of Your College Z
l Career. '

'Vai Throwing off his hat and coat, John walked into the living room,
E' where his sister, Mary, was absorbed in one of the latest novels.
I 'K "No, John, why? Is there anything wrong?"
"Well I don't know. But Tom gave me a message for you in case he did
not have time to call. It seems that at lunch today he was called to the phone,
and a few minutes later he came hurrying back, whispered something to me and
was off before I could realize what it was all about."
"Oh john, what did he say? Tell me, has something happened to Torn? Oh,
why do you stand there and gaze at me so coldly?" Mary was almost in a fever.
"I can tell you what he said, but hanged if I can make out what's wrong.
The whole thing's got me up a tree."
"But what did he say? Can't you settle down for a minute and tell me?"
"Well, Mary, all that he said to me was that his brother had called and
insisted that he go home on the next train. There was some trouble which his
brother could not explain-though he assured him that it was not sickness or
death. Poor Tom was certainly in a frantic state of mind. Gee, I felt sorry for
him. I tried to calm him, for I couldn't help thinking that something terrible
