The School of Liberal ArTs-as old as The college iT-
self-was unTil a relaTively recenT daTe The core curricu-
lum of a Villanova educafion.
Organized along The lines of The cenfuries old clas-
sical TradiTions, The Arfs School is designed To produce.
Through The major sTudy of philosophy, a man wiTh a
firm knowledge of The ulTimaTe TruThs of life and an un-
dersfanding of his True relaTionships wiTh his Creafor and
his fellowmen. Despife The diTficulTies resulfing from
man's almosf compleTe surrender To scienfific advances,
This course mainTains a posifion of balancing The world-
wide maTerial inTeresTs by presenfing and sTressing The
imporTanT spirifual side of man. AlThough Philosophy is.
of necessiTy, The basic course, languages--ancienT and
modern, liferafure, and hisTory have a parT only slighfly
less in imporTance.
To fulfill The aim of producing The "well-rounded
man," a share of The ArTs sTudenT's schedule is given
over To mafhemafics, science, polifical sfudies, and To
an inTroducTion To The fine arTs of music and painTing.
The School of Arfs is headed by Rev. Edward M.
Dwyer, OSA., and iT has recenfly incorporafed inTo
iTs curricula The scienfific subiecTs which once consTiTuTed
The pre-medical course.
The freshman year serves as an inTroducTion,
Through The sfudy of general courses in Chemisfry, Phy-
sics, and Biology, To The scienfific world. This ground-
work in ChemisTry is given pracTical applicaTion in The
fields of QualiTaTive and QuanTiTaTive Analysis. The sTu-
denT's love for scienTific inquiry and research is given an
ouTleT in The necessary and inferesfing sTudy of Caf
Anafomy. This is followed by a period of even more
Technical sTudy, including more advanced work in Chem-
isTry, Embryology, and Human Anafomy.
However, The science sTudenT's Training is noT com-
pleTely scienfific. He, Too, musT Till The Villanova require-
menT of being noT only a specialisf buT a "well-rounded
man." To assure The fuTure professional men a True
perspecfive of The values of life, The sTudenT is offered
a balanced schedule which includes LiTeraTure, Modern
Languages, and Philosophy.
FurTher inTensified sTudy and specializafion is car-
ried on in The final year of undergradauTe work. Now
The sTudenT clearly sees The relafionship exisTing among
The courses of his previous years. lmporTanT also in This
year is The Training given in Medical Jurisprudence and
in The Cafholic approach To The pracTical problems of
life-always The primary Task of Villanova.
The Educafion DeparTmenT, formed as an adiuncT
To The Arfs School in I936, is designed primarily To en-
able men desiring careers as Teachers a broad and
complefe college Training wiTh special emphasis on a
field of Their choice. The necessary culfural background,
similar To ThaT of The Arfs School, is afforded during The
firsT Two years.
ThroughouT These years The sTudenT is in close con-
TacT wiTh The educaTional Taculfy, receiving aid in de-
Termining wheTher he possesses sufficienT Teaching apTi-
Tude and selecTing his major course of sTudy. The Junior
and firsT half of Senior Year are devoTed almosT exclu-
sively To educaTional psychologies. Theories of insTrucT-
ing, and sfudy in The maior field.
The laTTer half of The senior year affords The sTu-
denT an opporTuniTy To obfain pracfical experience in
acfual classroom Teaching aT nearby, approved second-
ary schools. Upon The successful compleTion of his work,
The sTudenT is eligible for a STaTe Teaching Cei'TificaTe
WiTh medicine making imporTanT advances because of The discovery and
developmenT of warTime wonder drugs, ChemisTry occupies an increas-
ingly imporTanT posiTion in The pre-medical curriculum. Aware of This, sTu-
denTs work conscienTiously on Their required experimenfs.
OT primary imporTance in any experimenTal work is The
exacf measuremenT of The maTerial To be sTudied. AdiacenT
To The ChemisTry laboraTories is The balance room, in which
sensiTive scales are available for use in connecTion wiTh

We sfand ai' long lasl' al' The end of a road. our
goal achieved, our purpose won. College life. and rhe
war wiih which ii was inseparably enlwined, has slipped
behind us: The long-prepared-for iulure sireiches ahead.
Perhaps because 'for mosl' of us 1'he way has been besei'
wi'rh serious delays, we are a bil' incredulous now 'rhal'
we are aciually ready l'o depari. Graduafion appeared
so dislanf during lhose years of conflici' fhaf l'he realiza-
1'ion of if has 'ro fake hold of us gradually. by degrees.
The memories of lhis. lhe class of '47, are nor 'rhe
memories of The college classes of old. Many of ihe
same ingredienis are mixed in +hem. bul' ihe confinuiiy
is lacking. The world boiled over on our college careers:
hisiory invaded our classrooms. Large numbers of us
suddenly found ourselves in uniiorm. We scal'+ered l'o
camps and colleges all over The naiion. The Armed
Forces did nor 'lake us as a body, nor did 'lhey release
us as a body. As fhe war waned, Ii++le by liH'le we be-
gan 'io lrickle back +o Villanova. Final viciory and peace
released large numbers of us +o ioin 'rhose already re-
'l'urned. The class in which we found ourselves could noi'
look back upon a common lineage: buf fhe spiril' which
Villanova imparrs had bound us as a group during 'l'he
war, and if drew us close iogeiher during Thar year
which we have all shared in common. our senior year.
Lei' us look around during 'rhis pause befween ihe
pasl' and 'rhe fufure. Some of us can see glimmering in
ihe disiance pre-war Villanova. Fresh from high school.
we ihen gazed for ihe firsl' lime upon lhe siern coun-
'renance of The Sophomore class. men dedicafed 'ro purg-
ing us of our puerile ways. To make cerrain fhal' our
youfhful energy did nof upsef fhe decorum of college
life, fhey direcfed if info ifs proper channels. Affired in
bow fie and dinky, we carried many an upperclassman's
frunk up long flighfs of sfairs. The Sfudenf Council regi-
menfed our enfhusiasm wifh long cheering sessions, dur-
ing which we shoufed, sang, and roared fighfing praises
'ro Villanova unfil we had absorbed fhaf good old "do
or die for Alma Mafer" spirif. Dark glances followed us
if we failed fo give fhe fradifional "hello" greefing fo
our fellow sfudenfs. Before long we were quife nafurally
exchanging "helloes" wifh Sophomores, Juniors, and Sen-
iors. We had become a parf of Villanova. Safisfied wifh
our new demeanor, fhe upperclassmen launched us on
our social careers wifh fea dances af fhe local Cafholic
girls' colleges, where if was hoped we would acquire
poise, smoofhness, and ci dafe for fhe coming Villanova
dances. The days sped by. The dances came. and
broughf wifh fhem lazy moonlighf sfrolls fhrough 'lhe
campus. Buf fhere were ofher nighfs-nighfs made lively
wifh raucous bull sessions, nighfs filled wifh sfudy. Tesfs
came. We fensed. We passed. Before we knew if our
Freshman year had drawn fo a close.
The sophisficafion we had longed for upon our en-
'rronce fo Villanova, we considered ours as Sophomores.
Debonair, we frowned upon fhe anfics of fhe incoming
Frosh. Taking advanfage of our 'rradifional righfs, we
immediafely began fo discipline fhem. We followed fime-

hallowed pafhs. The Sophomore Cofillion and all fhe ac-
fivifies of fhe college year were ours. Perhaps some of
us can see ourselves in 'rhose brighf days as Juniors. No
year could fop fhaf one. We were familiar wifh fhe
school, had made lasfing friendships, and were well
esfablished socially. .
Buf nof all of our members can look back fo pre-
war Villanova. Some of us were sfill preparing for college
when wifh a sickening impacf news of fhe Jap affack on
Pearl Harbor blared ouf from newspaper and radio.
December 8, l94l. broughf fhe war ouf of ifs European
and Asiafic background righf info our lives. lf sfill
seemed disfanf, buf we knew we were now a parf of if.
Those of us nof in college wondered anxiously if we
would ever gef fhere. Those of us in college wondered
how long we would sfay. lf wasn'f easy fo sfudy when
Bafaan loomed more imporfanf fhan Economics or Eng-
lish. when we expecfed fo be called fo dufy any fime.
Villanova, liffle by liffle. began fo lose ifs peace-fime
afmosphere. There were sfill dances. plays. and bull-
sessions: buf fhey were fouched by fhe grimness of war.
The new fraining program under "Ciipper" Smifh em-
phasized fhe building of fhe body noi' for sporf, buf for
baffle. We crawled. jumped. and climbed unfil we were
a mass of aches and scrafches. Pracfice air-raid alarms
broke fhe roufine of classes. One by one our friends leff
us for fhe service.
Typical of fhe scores of Villanovans who inferrupfed 'lheir schooling
fo affend fo fhe more urgenf business of war is fhis group being
sworn info ihe Army Air Corps Reserve. Numerous ofhers chose fo
serve in +l1e Navy and received ihe inifial phase of fheir fraining
here. A large perceniage of these men have since refurned. Many
were gradualed fhis year: ofhers have been delayed even more by
fheir sfay in fhe army. A few of flue group will never refurn.

The cenTral coordinaTing agency and governing
body of sTudenT acTiviTies on The campus is The STudenT

THE SEM NAHS
Villanova's seminars are designed fo fulfill a basic
need in fhe sfudenf's curriculum. There are a variefy of
sfudies which sfudenfs desire fo pursue, buf find no fime
for in fheir program of specialized work. Seminar groups
alleviafe fhis defecf and incorporafe such diverse sub-
iecfs as poefry, debafing, clramafics, infernafional af-
fairs. languages, and science.
Fafher McShea heads fhe Poefry Sociefy and gives
if vifalify and inferesf which organizafions of fhis fype
offen lack. The sociefy operafes wifh complefe informal-
ify. There are no officers, and fhe sfream of inferesf

The sociefy is affiliafed wifh fhe Nafional Associafion

Fafher Lozano, is fhe largesf organizafion on fhe cam-
pus. lfs aim is fo augmenf fhe class work by using fhe

and Spanish films are shown af fhe club's meefings.
Affer undergoing a complefe reorganizafion, fhe

Anofher influenfial organizafion on fhe campus is

compeTiTion, wiTh an average score of I70 Tor Thirfy games.
The Bowling League, inacTive since iT was abandoned
by The Engineering TraTerniTy in I9-45, was reorganized
This year as one oT The major acTiviTies oT The inTra-mural
program. DespiTe The TacT ThaT all maTches had To be
held oTT The campus aT The Main Line Bowling CenTer in
Bryn Mawr, The league immediaTely became popular
wiTh bowling enThusiasTs and was energeTically supporTed
ThroughouT The season.
SuTTering Trom The same ills ThaT plagued mosT oTher
acTiviTies oT The year-diTTiculTies in arranging a schedule
suiTable To all sTudenTs-The league was Torced To
operaTe on a limiTed scale. ConTesTs were bowled only
once a week, Tuesday, wiTh six compleTe Teams parTici-
The TirsT halT ended in a play-oTT maTch beTween The
AusTin l-lall Red-Eyes and The Day-Flop lron Men. The
Dayfhlops won The championship in Talcing The Tinal game

While mosT exTracurricular acTiviTies experienced
a posT-war expansion, inTra-mural baskeTball had To be
saTisTiecl wiTh The shorTesT schedule in many years. LasT
year The league moderaTors were Torced To move The
games Trom Their Tamiliar quarTers in The old gym in
Alumni Hall To The Field House Tloor. Emergency sTudenT
housing This year made The Field House unavailable Tor
The Tall se-mesTer, and as a resulT The league was inacTive.
As soon as The barracks were compleTed and The
varsiTy courT made available, Frs. Kemme and Girolami
drew up a schedule Tor The spring semesTer, wiTh The
season opening February 20. A new name-Barracks
--was added To The rosTer oT The league, and The new-
comers made Their enTry noTable by downing all op-
ponenTs in The early games oT The season and piling
up a respecTable winning sTreak.
lneviTably, individual names soon began To sTand
ouT. Team capTains were Bill Barry, AusTin Hall: PeTe
Knapp, Fedigan Hall: Mark Weber, Alumni Hall: Chuck
RaTTeTTa, Mendel Hall: Harry KnechT, Dams: and Fad
Schaub, Barracks. Fedigan produced The sensaTion aT
The year as Their cenTer Phil STack esTablished a new
league record oT 29 poinTs againsT The Dams. Phil STack
made I3 Tield goals and Three Touls as he scored all buT
Tive oT his Teams poinTs Tor The evening.
AnoTher unusual TeaTure OT The year's acTiviTy were
The inTra-mural games played in The Field House as
preliminaries To The varsiTy conTesTs. These games were
noT a parT oT The regular league schedule. The Teams
were composed mosTly of members aT The varsiTy TooT-
A biT of acTion from The inTro-mural game
which preceded The varsiTy conTesT with
Bucknell. The large crowd in oTTendonce is
an unusual TeaTure Tor on inTro-mural
game, which usually finds only a Tew rooTers
from each hall in The sTands. STudenT ref-
eree Poul Higgins keeps The ocTion under
close observoTion as a Fedigan man goes
high To push in anoTher field goal.

Fedigan Hall. The winners had a poini ioial of 30, wiih
Fedigan only four poinis behind Them.
Second and ihird place scores gave fhe winning
margin 'ro The Marines, as all ieams buf one were rep-
resenied in ihe firsi' place column. George Nuber ol
Fedigan 'fools 'rhe 50 yard ireesiyle, while Alan Nye,
of Fedigan Navy won 'rhe l00 yard lreesiyle. Gene

is a fifty-fifty combination of ability and experience.
WHEN it comes to photography, we're particular about
quality: we fuss with true rendition, we dote on the sub-
jects of lighting, color harmony and rhythm of composi-
tion. Maybe that's why We get along so well with
particular editors and advisers.
AN intelligent service endowed with a spirit of friendly
cooperation has been the important factor in bringing
Zamsky Studios to the position of LEADERSHIP in the
school annual field.
MAYBE that's why Villanova College turned to us for
their photography in 1947. We hope you will turn to us
soon and we invite your inquiry.
