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 friendship. 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.

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!

P " ing history. 2 Q our triumphs and downfalls we, of the junior class, narrate the follow' l 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. l i l E rw ' ...INS Z l 1 1 CZYZCJAI e M 1N,glg,y-QV " N c 7 + PQCWQ . .vQ'5li'.'Ns mrvffijgfb 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 committee. 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 college careers. 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 selection. 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 of success. 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. FRANCIS A.

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. P YY 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."

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 had happened at home, and I knew that he would be worse off if he didn't keep cool." "Anyhow, he told me that if he got a chance he would call you. Otherwise I was to tell you and keep you from worrying until we heard from him, for he hoped to be here by seven or eight o'clock. VVhen he finished telling me that he rushed out to get his coat and hat, and that was all I saw of him." "Oh, what will I ever do?" "Now don't cry, Mary. Everything will be all right, and even if it isn't, crying or getting excited won't help matters a bit." "I know, John, but I can't help feeling this way. Vsfhen I think of how happy and anxious Tom was last night and of how he talked about what he would do at the Prom tonight, I just can't control myself." "But don't get all worked up over it." "Oh, I knew something would happen. Maybe it's wrong to be superstif Zious, but I do think the Juniors were foolish to have their big dance on Friday- the thirteenth. However, I wouldn't mind missing the Prom if I were only sure that nothing had happened to Tom." "But Mary, I feel certain that Tom is alright and that he will be here in a little while. I don't remember him ever going back on his word." "Well, if there were nothing wrong he would have called. Certainly he could have found a minute to do that." "Wait a moment, there's the phone now." "Hello, What's that? No, this isn't Poplar 4180, you have the wrong number. Sorry." "Darn it, sis-these wrong number calls give me a pain. Anyhow, let's not worry about Tom until we hear something from him. Meanwhile I'm going up to get ready. If the phone rings again don't die of fright. Keep your wits about you, and don't cross your bridges until you come to them." AY sis, did Tom call you today?" info , iff , , W J --f EYZCJA 'INQQQLH4' " NSE: 33 c3iSC'Nl IW5lCNI,-,,,,, With that John went upstairs and left his sister to her own troubled thoughts. In a few minutes the phone rang again, and Mary leaped out of her l chair as though there had been a blast of T. N. T. L'Hellog hello . . . Yes, this is Mary: . . . In jail? Tom in jail? . . . You say that he stole the money from the class treasury? I don't understand it . . . j But he told john that he was called to New York . . . You say that he told that to john only to keep him in ignorance of his arrest? . . . Oh, heavens, what will I dof, "What's the matter, Mary?" i "Oh, John, something terrible. Jim is on the phone, and he says that Tom l await his trial." is in jail. He-ihe stol the class money-and-and they've put him in there to X With that she dropped in a chair. And the next thing she knew John was shaking her- "Come, sis, you've been sleeping long enoughg and judging from your ' motions you must have been having a terrible dream. Youll better hurry, too, l for ou have onl a half an hour to dress before dinner. Sa ', wait 'til fou see l Y Y I I 5 Tom in his new tux. You two will be the hits of the Prom tonight.
