' V ' X Y L Q Ll , V ' if TO OUR LADY AND QUEEN MARY IMMACULATE To Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, we, the class of ,37, consecrate our fourth edition of the CROSS- ROADS. May her purity servo as a mirror for all Catho- lic Youth. Behinatiun To our Faculty-sympathetic in their understanding steadfast in their guidance, and unfailing in their inspiration, We, the Class of 1937, gratefully dedicate our g'CRossRoADs.', E l f 2 'Wintentian ilnstitute Every Albanian is acquainted with the large building on the corner of Madi- son Avenue and Ontario Street-Vincentian Institute. This school has three distinct divisions within its curricula: moral, mental, and social. The moral guidance of the youth is aptly cared for and inspired by the religious instructions given throughout his twelve years of training and awe- inspiring examples of charity and obedience set forth by the Reverend Principal, Sisters of Mercy, Brothers of Holy Cross, and that of the persevering lay faculty. Another factor which plays an important role in the promotion of the pupills religious character is the chapel. The tranquillity which reigns within the Grotto of the Lady of Lourdes is a true inspiration to non-Catholics as well as Catholics. Few schools enjoy the privilege which we have of living and studying under the same roof with the Blessed Sacrament. Another of Vincentian's main distinctions is its exceptionally high scholastic rating. Such colleges as Saint Rose, Saint Bonaventure, Saint Michael, New Rochelle, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Duke University, Niagara, and Mount Six Saint Mary's have presented to members of the various graduating classes scholar- ships as a reward for the outstanding intellectual ability of Vincentian students and Vincentian graduates. Each year Vincentian has participated in the winning State scholarships. It holds the unique distinction of winning eight out of fifteen allotted to Albany County. Every opportunity for the development of one's abilities is afforded by this school. Three types of diplomas are awarded by the school: College Entrance, Academic, or Commercial. The College Entrance diploma includes such subjects as foreign languages, sciences, and mathematics-a background for the liberal arts course offered by many colleges. The Academic diploma gives the student a general background for either college or business, whereas, the Commercial diploma is awarded for a course which consists only of commercial subjects. The third phase of Vincentian life is its social well-being. This phase is expanded in such affairs as sports, extra-curricular activities, dances, culture classes, and dramaticsvsall of which will be discussed individually in the following pages. OUR LADY OF LOURDES, GROTTO Seven N r :Forsmark The staff of the CROSSROADS of 1937 wishes to extend its unlimited gratitude to the faculty, to its patrons, and to all the organizations which have in any way given benevolent assistance for the promotion of this annual. ' t ,I I D f-x. f N I fx V iffx am if CL? ig L Zllibe russruahs Qhministratiun FATHER CHARLES Principal We cannot express adequately our thanks and loyalty to this benign priest who has done so much to advance education throughout the State in general and in particular in Vincen- tian. Here is to one of the best and most understanding friends we shall ever have. BROTHER JOHN English Progressiveness ! Personality ! Kindness ! These are but a few of the attributes which have helped to make Brother John one of the outstanding members of our Faculty during SISTER MARY BORROMEO English In our Sister Superior we have a loyal friend and staunch supporter. In addition to her duties as Dean of the girls, Sister guides us through the realm of literature with the ease and grace of a most lucid teacher. av' the two short years we have known him. Ten MR. J. EMMETT WALL A truly patient gentleman! Whenever our flag of distress was waving we Houndered out- side the office door or leaned upon the radiator awaiting our entrance into the office where we always received help and understanding. FATHER LAWRENCE RYAN Ghz Qllrussruahs jfanultp FATHER JOHN FITZGERALD Religion Father's kindly manner and his interests in all branches of Vincentian activity have him to us endeared. Under a shy and reticent exterior we have found an abundance of wit and humor. Relzgion Here is one of our more recent additions to the staff of Vincentian. His personality and the zeal for work which he has shown as boys, instructor in religion have already endeared him to the student body. FATHER JAMES MINEHAN Religion Great in zeal and generosity as Paul of Tar- sus, Father Minehan as Director of the Sodality and Instructor in Religion has won the hearts of the V. I. boys and girls. FATHER RICHARD WALSH Religion In addition to his regular parish work, Father Walsh takes an active interest in our Sodality as its Director and guide. We always knew that Father was never too busy to give us advice or aid when we sought him. Eleven The Ctirussruahs 'fllw W R BROTHER XAVIER English, Mathematics Twelve BROTHER EMIL English-Latin On the road to success! This may easily be seen by Brother's invigorating lectures on one's career' and his unsurpassed ideals of gentle- rnanship, which he is constantly placing before us. These are the laudable ambitions he places before his Vincentian boys. Brother Xavier's popularity is great because of his understanding of boys and patience in solving their problems. Always kind and co- operative, Brother Xavier will hold a cherished place in the minds and hearts of the boys. BROTHER MAJELLA Latin The gentle nature and cheery aid of Brother Majella have made him most attractive to all the boys who are under his direction. A true friend and a fine master, Brother Majella has, in both word and deed, admirably proved his worth and talents. illibe Ctirussrnahs BROTHER JOEL History, Political Science Ultra modern is the most explanatory adjec- tive that may be applied to Brother Joel. His unusual manner of instruction, as well as his calm, collected personality and pleasing smile will long be remembered by Vincentian. BROTHER ALPHONSUS French, Science It is diificult for any person to be loved and admired by a large group of persons but Brother Alphonsus has earned this distinc- tion. A gay spirit and a serious mind enable Brother to be both a Companion and a counselor to his boys. . BROTHER ADELBERT Mathematics, Science The boys of V. I's lower classes have no better director than Brother Adelbert. His kindness, fidelity, wisdom and perseverence, plus personality have helped to endear Brother to all his pupils. Thirteen 013132 Qtrnssruahs SISTER MARY LOURDES Science Here we present our kindly and beloved faculty advisor for this Year Book. In addition to teaching competently several branches of science, she finds time to aid and counsel us in solving our perplexities and difficulties. F. SISTER MARY HELENE Latin, Political Science Sister teaches the social studies most effi- ciently. Her hearty and cheerful manner will be remembered by all our students. SISTER MARY BEATRICE Ffench, Mathematics We have found a deep fund of patience and loyalty which makes Sister Mary Beatrice one of our favorites. Her ever present smile and sparkling eyes contribute to the charm of this brilliant Mathematic teacher. V. I. pupils know that they have a friend and counselor in this nun. Fourteen SISTER MARY BONAVENTURE A History, French A combination of wit and seriousness makes this teacher a favorite. Her sense of humor makes her charming, her severity makes her admired and her brilliance in teaching history makes her 'fthe tops". 1115132 Qlrnssruahs SISTER MARY BERENICE Latin One of our popular teachers is Sister Mary Berenice. Her zeal for our spiritual well-being in the Children of Mary Sodality is praise- worthy and appreciated by us. SISTER MARY GERVASE Science, Commercial Sister always has a cheerful smile as she goes through the halls or in her classroom. Her knowledge of business methods would make her successful in any line of work that she might choose. SISTER MARY CARMEL English Here is where we have an example of quiet efficiency. Sister makes an amusing and in- teresting period out of any English class. Her talent for keeping people interested and her novel ideas for work are very effective. SISTER MARY ALMA History, Latin Here is a quiet and retiring but altogether charming teacher. Her thorough knowledge of the Held of history and languages is quite evident from the results she achieves. Fifteen 1113132 Qirussruahs SISTER MARY EDWARD Latin, Mathematics One of the comparatively new additions to our faculty, Sister has proved herself thoroughly competent to perform her assigned tasks. In a short time she has made many loyal friends among the student body. SISTER MARY GERALDINE English, History In Sister lXIary Geraldine we see a mixture of fun and seriousness. Her good nature is refreshing and appreciated when the tedium of the school day hangs over us. MRS. CHARLES GALLAGHER Commercial In the head of our Business Department we have a staunch friend and efficient teacher. Mrs. Gallagher puts forth all her best efforts to advance Vincentian students and graduates in the business world. MISS NIARY hIeNIELLY Librarian Our Librarian is possessed of a distinct charm. Her fund of patience must be inex- haustible as is her good nature. Our literary tastes have been carefully cultivated under her direction. Sixleen --i-- be Qlirusrrnahs MRS. ALEXANDER SMITH Culture Our Ladyship teacher is one of our most Charming instructors. Her eagerness to help us solve various problems of etiquette is gratefully received and appreciated by us. MRS. GERTRUDE DELANY Mrs. Delany, our home economics teacher, is a trust-worthy and benevolent guide for the girls which she directs. Besides her immediate students, she is well liked by all students who have the pleasure of her acquaintance. MR. JAMES LAYDEN Band Director The spirit of our Vincentian lies in its band, and the spirit of the band, in Mr. Layden whose untiring work has made our band one of the snappiest, peppiest in the city of Albany. No words can express the gratitude we owe to you, Mr. Layden. MR. DONALD STEWART Orchestra Director To you, Mr. Stewart, Vincentian offers a vote of thanks for the most generous and em- cient assistance which you have placed at our command. ' Seventeen 9 Eighleen 1115132 flllrussruahs Zlhsentez jfacultp SISTER MARY EVANGELIST Sister Mary Evangelist is the Captain of our Ship, for it was during our Sophomore year that we, the present Senior Class, received the council and good advice which has aided us through our entire remaining years at Vincen- tian. Great was the disappointment of our class the next year to learn that Sister Evan- gelist had been assigned to Saint Paul the Apostle's Convent in Troy. We had hoped, on returning as Juniors to Hnd that we would continue under her guidance. Two years have now passed since Sister Evangelist left, yet in our memory she will always remain. The little things that seemed so burdensome to us she gently lifted from out shoulders. She cared for us as though she were a member of our own family. Nor can we close this article without men- tioning her sense of humor-it was something that was both refreshing and witty. Especially in homeroom, where many an informal discus- sion was held, peals of laughter could often be heard because of a remark Sister had made. The Seniors recall vividly the incidents that we mean. We cherish her memory and hope she will be with us at graduation. At any rate we know she is thinking of us in prayer. SISTER MARY VERONICA Although we had Sister with us for only one short year, everyone who came in contact with her learned to admire and respect the strong traits of sincerity and genuine goodness in her character. Her unfailing patience and spirit of helpfulness were a source of aid to every one of her pupils and associates. SISTER MARY JOAN OF ARC In her short acquaintance with our class as freshmen, Sister Joan of Arc instilled in the hearts of all who knew her an untiring zeal for accomplishment and an aspiration for effi- ciency. She will always be remembered by the class of '37 as an exemplar of the finest Catho- lic womanhood. We wish her unlimited success and happiness. The Qlrussruahs MISS MARY E. WARREN Miss Warren came as a practice teacher to Vincentian seven years ago. Her pleasing personality and ability to make Sciences in- teresting won our admiration at the first. When Miss Warren resigned, we realized that we had lost a teacher whom we held in high esteem. We wish her success and happi- ness in her field of Science teaching in the Schuyler High School. MISS HENRIETTE ARCHAMBAULT During her several years sojourn at Vincen- tian, Miss Archambault showed herself not only a capable teacher, but also a true friend. Her personality and her fine Catholic example will never be forgotten by the hundreds of admiring students whom she so ably instructed. MISS MARY PATTERSON Miss Patterson taught at Vincentian for five years as a teacher of commercial subjects and geometry. Her friendly smile and attractive manner won for her many true friends. There was not one in the school from pupil to faculty who did not regret her departure, but we wish to congratulate her on her successful appoint- ment in the State department. MR. RAYMOND C. HENRY Mr. Henry was a member of the faculty at Vincentian for six years before resigning to teach in the McKinley Junior High School in Schenectady. During the years that Mr. Henry taught us, we learned to respect and admire him, not only for his teaching ability, but also for his excellent advice and sympathetic under- standing. Mr. Henry sacrificed much of his time to remain after school in order to help us with extra workg his efforts can never be fully appreciated except by those who took advantage of his generosity. ,We shall never forget the enjoyable hours spent in the Art Room, for our Senior year has not seemed quite complete without them.

Ke The Qlrnssrnahs -i--- Iaisturp of the freshman Bear Dear Diary: We remember well those days so long ago when we were freshmen striving to make our place among the best Vincentians. Although we were termed the "greenies" when dismayed by the number of rooms and people in Vincentian, many of us made early appearances into the chief societies of the school-The Children of Mary Sodality, Nocturnal Adoration, and the Art Club. At the end of October in our civics classes time was spent for a mock pro- cedure of nominations and elections. The class was voluntarily divided into parties. Campaign posters filled the Freshmen homerooms. Speeches were delivered with pomp and ceremony. On Election Day, John McManus, the Republican Nominee, was elected mayor by an overwhelming vote. Although financially embarrassed because of his great expenditures for bribes of candy cigars, Mayor McManus took his oath of oflice amid the good will of all. Soon after this, Mother Evangelist, who, although with us a short time, had readily found and maintained a place in our hearts, left. Sister Bonaventure came to fill her place. Our first retreat in Vincentian took place in December. The daily talks and conferences were beneicial. The one lingering thought left in our hearts after this retreat was, "More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of." Under the supervision of the P.T.A. the Saturday night dancing classes fol- lowed by dances were begun. Although gracefulness was not our outstanding char- acteristic, many happy hours were passed in the gymnasium learning new and intricate steps. Our first impression of Vincentian as a school where athletics were outstanding were augmented by the winning of the Knute Rockne Trophy for excellence in football. Although the Freshmen boys active in sports were not numerous, we were glad that our school had won. After the Christmas holidays, we began to dig in order to pass our first exam- inations in Vincention successfully. During the vacation week following examinations, we made use of the deep snow. Under the supervision of Miss Warren, the Freshmen class had a sleigh ride. We rode for several hours around the city and then returned to the gym where hot dogs and cocoa were served. After the Easter Holidays, our strenuous preparation for examinations was delightfully interrupted by rehearsals under Miss Kenny for a musical demonstra- tion and tea. For the most part, we went through the ordeal of examinations very well. With the completion of school work the class decided on an outing to Lyon Lake. We decided to make the affair a great time for all, so members from all classes were invited. Several Sisters accompanied us and they showed themselves as capable as we for making the day a success. At Lyon Lake there was swimming, games, boat- ing and picnicing. This event ended our Freshman Year so well begun, with the final note of joy and harmony with the school. JEAN MCENROE. Fifty-eight I 9 3 7 Zlllbe Cllirussruahse Supbnmnre ear Dear Diary: Alas and alack! vacation days are now a mere memory and the school year begins as the class of ,37 advances to the position of Honorable Sophomores. Sister Mary Evangelist, though the only new member of the faculty, is an old acquaintance and is enthusiastically welcomed by her old as well as new pupils. With the Uwelcomen mat on the doorstep, a cry of joy on our lips and with open arms, we greet the latest members of the class. Who? Our Hlibustering candidate from Gohoes, who is known as just plain Ed Conway. Two more out- of-towners have entered our midst this year. Margy Galvin from "ye olde Bostone" and Bob Trulan from New York. Both our classmates will retain the characteristic accent of their home towns. Margy with her 'SKwan't', for can't and "dawg" for dog, and Bob with his ufothn for fourth and ufareigni' for foreign are ever a source of pleasure and a challange to our imitative powers. Another young lady joined our ever increasing class of '37, Marian Cahill from Glens Falls. Marian with her friendly manner and cheery disposition is fast becoming popular among the boys and girls. Also, Dear Diary, one other member has entered our class to make it complete, but she is from our own city. Eleanor Sano left her abode at Hackett High School and has come within our "hallowed', walls to be of invaluable serv- ice to Mrs. Gallagher in the Gommercial Department. Yesterday, Dear Diary, was a red-letter day in the lives of the Sophomores, when the election of class officers took place. The president, Bob Handerhang Vice-President, Betty McLean, Secretary, Jack McDonald, and Treasurer, Tom Toohey are all capable members of our class, who, we feel certain, will fulfill the duties we have assigned to them. But, Dear Diary, great grief has come to our class on this day, our beloved classmate and friend, John Hoffman, has departed to eternal happiness. In the midst of our sorrow we have the consolation of knowing that although it is God's Will to deprive us of -Iohn's friendship and loyalty, he will live forever in our memory. We feel that he is now in Heaven praying for us as we are now praying for him and we realize that he will be with us in spirit at graduation even though he cannot receive his diploma with thc class. And now, Dear Diary, the June exams are coming, but we rather welcome them because vacation days are drawing near and next year we will be happy Juniors. BETTY GRIFFIN F ifty-nine 1937 The QIZ1fu55irnah1s---- Ilaisturp nf Ziuninr ear Dear Diary: September 8, 1935-Today we came back to school to enter our Junior year. We discovered various changes in the faculty. Our beloved Vice-principal for the girls, Sister Borromeo, has been replaced by Sister Veronica, formerly of Catholic Central High School, in Troy. However, we find that we are not to lose our dear Superior, for Sister Borromeo is to remain at Vincentian. We welcome to our community here, besides Sister Veronica, Sister Carmel and Sister Gervase and we find their presence among us most enjoyable. We also Hnd an addition to the faculty which will be most beneficial to the boys of Vincentian, namely, the Brothers of the Holy Cross who have come to us from Notre Dame. Notre Dame's loss is the gain of all our boys who will come in contact with these Brothers, and of Vincentian in general. Mr. John Sullivan is entering our school as athletic coach for the boys, and, also to do his part in intellectual teaching. However, Mr. Sullivan's arrival is the result of the departure of the former coach, Mr. Anthony Cousins, and this causes the athletes much grief. Therefore, it is with a mingled feeling of joy and sorrow that we receive Mr. Sullivan. The students of Vincentian deeply regret to learn that Sister Geraldine and Mother Evangelist have gone to other sections of the diocese, but, regard- less of our unwillingness to lose these two nuns, who have been enshrined in our hearts, we sincerely wish them much happiness in their new life. September 9-Today, Dear Diary, we who are entering our third year, look with pleasure upon the two proceeding years of high school, and with confidence and anticipation we view the coming year. We realize that our work is not to be easy, and that perhaps we may feel discouraged at times, but we deter- mine not to shirk the task that is before us. We greet our old friends and classmates, and joyfully accept the new additions to the Junior class. Among these is Marguerite O'Farrell CPeggy to her friendsj, who tells us that she is a former resident of New York City. Also, among our new students are Bill Beaumet, who come to us from Albany Boys Academy, and Dick Quackenbush, who hails from Albany High School. October 3-Today, Dear Diary, was the first important event of the year, the elec- tion of class ofhcers. As a result of the election we find that John McManus is president, Betty Minnock, vice-president, Ruth Killian, secretary, and Vera Besse, treasurer. October 30-Tonight, Diary, being eager to assist the senior class of 1936 in rais- ing the much-needed money for their year book, we gave a Hallowe'en dance in the gymnasium, the proceeds of which will be given to the Seniors for the year book fund. This venture proved to be most successful and was appre- ciated deeply by the noble seniors. January-Today, Dear Diary, the Junior girls had the first ladyship class under Miss Sheeran. We enjoyed the lesson immensely and feel that this course is to be Inost profitable to the school. 1937 --1 Qlibe Cllirussruahs --1-- April-After an enjoyable Easter vacation, Diary, we returned to school today. We realize that it is time for us to begin to work in earnest and that vacation days are over. May 4--Of course, Diary, our Junior year has not been uneventful but among our most important activities was the junior Speaking Contest which was held tonight at Karlsfeld. The victors were Marjorie Galvin and James Quinn. June 19-Well, Dear Diary, we are happy to tell you that today is the close of examination week. We have all worked hard and have done our best to pass according to the standards of Vincentian. June 20-Now that examinations are over, Dairy, the Juniors feel the urge to view nature, consequently, we are sponsoring an outing which is a bus ride to VVhite's Beach. June 22-The final gift of the Juniors to the graduation class of 1936 is the decorat- ing of the casino at Karlsfeld for the annual June dance given in honor of the graduates. We spent three days, Diary, in hard work for this benefit. June 23-Tonight, Diary, we attended graduation and later went to the dance. It was a happy occasion for both the Seniors who have graduated and for us Juniors who will be in their place next year. And thus, Diary, comes a pleasant end to our Junior year which brought us much joy and happiness combined with work.

Our Senior year, crowded with joys, troubles, and anxieties has come and gone. When we, all-wise seniors, returned to take up our duties in September, we again found changes throughout the school. Although we lost two of our Brothers, Brother Edmund and Brother Joel, we added five to the remain- ing two, making a total of seven. We were glad to End Sister Mary Bor- romeo once again in her realm as girls' superior and Sister Mary Geraldine back as English teacher. However, we regretted the absence of Sister Mary Veronica, Miss Henrietta Archambault, our former French teacher, and Mr. Raymond C. Henry, our Art director. The girls joyfully received a newcomer, Sister Mary Edward from the Mother House on New Scotland Avenue. There were also a few changes in our Senior class. We welcomed a new girl, Jenny Brenensthul and were happy to find Anita Chase once more en- rolled as a Vincentian. We lost Muriel Wagner, Bill Beaumet, and Anne Kalinski. Soon after entering school, we settled down to hard work with the determination to make the class of '37 the best ever on the school records. Of course, the fact that we are the thirteenth class to graduate might have something to do with the dampening of our spirits in the middle of the year, but we leave that to your imagination. September 30-Early in September we had the usual class elections, but this year, we decided to do things a little differently. Instead of just one group we decided to appoint two-one as head of the girls-the other as head of the boys. The results of the girls were: Ruth Aldridge, President, Dorie Sheary, Vice-President, Helen Clark, Secretary, and Betty Minnock, Treasurer. Among the boys, Ed Conway came out victorious as President with Ed Banagan as Vice-President, Stephen Link as Secretary, and Frank Welnhofer as Treasurer. October 1-Before I place my weary head, crammed with Latin, French, history, on my pillow, I must enter a few thoughts. One of the first accomplishments of the Class of '37 was the beginning of a Sodality Newspaper, The Marian Messenger with Ruth Killian as Editor. In October the whole high school rallied forth to attend a Mass in unison to show our antagonism for Communism. Father Charles gave a fine talk on the evils of Communism and urged us to prevent its spread. November 1-On Hallowe'en night the Seniors had their chance to show that they could put something across successfully. Our dance of that night was cer- tainly a success. However, we could hardly mention one successful dance without giving due credit to the plucky Sophomores who gave the seniors a dance at Thanksgiving time. Sixty-three 1937- Zlible Qirnssruahs January l-My New Years' Resolutions! Even you, dear Diary, will not know them. When Christmas time rolled around the senior Commercial students de- cided to drop the custom of the past few years to have our Christmas Vin- centian printed, and with the help of the entire school, a Mimeographed Vin- centian was once more put out. During the Christmas Vacation, the Juniors gave one of the loveliest dances ever given in Vincentian. It was the Semi-formal Junior Prom. Our successors should be proud of the memory of that dance. January 14-Just before we faced our mid-year exams, the Senior Class of Lady- ship gave the first social event of this year's class. The occasion was a Tea Dance, which, although it had caused much anxiety to most of the girls, turned out favorably for all. In the midst of all this gayety the January exams were thrust upon us and we were forced to forget all social events and put our minds down to serious work. February 8+Exams over! However it was not long before we again began to think of ways to raise money for our year book, and in February we found ourselves with tickets, tickets, and more tickets. The occasion this time was a raflie, with the prize a trip to New York. We were fortunate in having one of our own Senior girls, Mary Mack, come out victorious. March 17-I must tell you of the good time we had tonight. There was another St. Patrick's Social given by the Seniors. This party included Bridge, Dancing, and entertainment, and was, as all former parties of the year had been, a tremendous success. April 1, 1937-It was at this same time that our basketball team came through for Vincentian and won the Saratoga Trophy in a series of games at Saratoga. As a result three of our players, Ed Crummey, John Deickelman, and James Engle were chosen to play on the Saratoga team. When the time for the Senior Speaking Contest arrived in March, we found Natalie Manning and Jack Dooley to be the orators of the Class of '37. Now Dear Diary, I close you for the school year in dear old V. I. Some of us have been sheltered by your walls for thirteen years. Oh! dear, a tear splash on you! Well, you wonit mind. It is a mark of affection. Such good times and occasionally such trying times but we know that sunshine and shadows make life. You will bc locked in a few minutes with our secrets, suc- cesses, and failures fonly a few we hopel.

Our Principal, Father Charles, is director of the services. The OHSICCTS of this society are William Meany, Paul Mailloux and James Madigan. The service is divided into nine so called nocturns. Originally in the liturgy of the church one of these was said every hour. But now the boys recite the nine in one hour and then attend Benediction. This Nocturnal Adoration Society is an outgrowth of what was formerly the custom among the men of St. Vincent's Parish of holding services all during the night before each First Friday.

The aims of this club are: to improve the work of the commercial studentsg to create a cordial re- lationship among its membersg and to make the graduates truly representative of Vincentian in their life work. The activities of the Commerce Club are both educational and social, and function under the directorship of Mrs. Charles Gallagher, commercial teacher. This year the Juniors, as well as the Seniors, have their own officers. In former years the olhcers have been elected from both groups. The officers of the Senior group are: JOHN OLANDER .

After each performance, nothing but compliments were heard, which should be an incentive to the members of next year. The Glee Club has made several successful appearances this year. They gave creditable renditions at the Senior Speaking Contest, Demonstration Sunday, The Cor election, Commencement and the Novena to Our Lady of Lourdes. After listening to the soft music of some of the numbers sung by the Glee Club, we can easily appreciate the beauty and inspiration the music of our fore- fathers offered to the world and how meaningless is the music of today. The Glee Club should instill in the hearts of youth today a love for better music. ROBERT HANDERHAN . . . .... President STEPHEN LINK . . Vice-President FRANK WELNHOFER l . . . .

No laggards or slackers are tolerated these days among Cunhafs men, Wide awake, alert, and effervescing with Vin- centian spirit are the only type that Dan Cunha tolerates. TENNIS Under the guidance of Brother Edmund the V. I. netmen showed themselves to advantage last season. The record shows three wins to overshadow two defeats. The return of three lettermen gives us the right for a still more successful year to come. l Eighty-four 7 I 9 3 7 01132 flllrussruahs Basketball 1936-37 Vincentian has just completed a vcry successful basketball season under the capable leadership of Coach Dan Cunha. In the Catholic league, Vincentian was a very successful team winning eight games and losing six. In outside competition, V. I. won nine games and lost one. This shows what a strong team Vincentian had with an average of .708 at the close of the season. The squad consisted of Edward Crummey, Thomas Scalzo, John Dieckelman, James Engel, Stephen Batory, William Roberts, Robert Trulan, Robert Handerhan, Joseph Delaney, John Rehfuss, and Michael O,Hare. This year in the Catholic league, V incentian showed a fine defensive team inas- much as the opposition's average was only 24.4 points per game. Vincentian was by far the best defensive team in the league. In regard to offensive playing, Vin- centian was also among the first. Out of seventy men scoring in the Catholic league circles, Vincentian men came in a group formation in the upper half of the individual scoring. This shows a well developed five-man offensive- team. Vincentian's greatest success was in the Saratoga Invitation Tourney held at Saratoga during March. Here, the team displayed championship basketball during the tournament and came out the victor. It defeated Rutland High School of Vermont 33-31 in the first game in the tournament. In the second game the follow- ing night, Vincentian trounced St. Joseph's Academy of North Adams, Massachu- setts 37-15. In the final game in which Vincentian met Holyoke High School of Massachusetts, Vincentian was rated the underdog but had a great deal of confi- dence and turned the tables on Holyoke, which is rated one of the strongest teams in Massachusetts, with a score of 23-19. Credit must be given to every member that participated in this tournament, but special honor should be bestowed on Ed Crum- mey, John Dieckelman, and James Engel who were named as members of the all tournament team.

GOETZ E igh t y-six FOOTBALL 1 9 3 7 The flllrussruahs Jfnuthall Vincentian opened its 1936-37 athletic season under the guidance of Coach Dan Cunha who replaced Jack Sullivan. The football team won three games, lost three, and tied one with Phillip Schuyler. The boys did well considering that most of them had been taught the Warner system by former coaches and then this year had to learn the Rockne type of play endorsed by Coach Cunha. Next year, the boys will be familiar with this type of play and should improve V. I.'s record. Vincentian was not a team with stars, but rather a team working together and fighting hard for victory. Credit must be given to Nunzio Scaringe, who was elected honorary captain at the close of the season, and to Eddie White who was high scorer. Nunzio was selected for the All-Albany team during his Junior and Senior years at V. I. Eddie White was a valuable triple threat man and should "go places" next year if he has a line in front of him which will provide good blocking. In his first year of varsity football, Ed was chosen on the All-Albany second team and let's hope for greater success in the future. Members of this year's team who will graduate are: Ends, Jim Feeley, Dick Quackenbush, Tom Scalzog Tackles, Bob Crowe, John Olanderg Guards, Nunzie Scaringe, Halfbacks, Bob Handerhan, Jack Martin, Ernie Burkhart. Those who will report next year are: Phil Gary, john Dieckelman, Joe Stellato, "Red" Mur- phy, Tom Toohey, Art Weisenburger, Frank and John Zickas, John Rehfuss, Toar Delaney, Bernie Polinski, Bill Nolan, Joe Campion, Eddie White, Jim Branche, Lorenz Longo. v.1. 6 schuyief 6 V.I. 21 Coeymans 0 V.I. 19 Cathedral 0 V.I. 6 La Salle 12 V.I. 14 Lansingburg 2 V.I. 0 C.B.A. 24 V.I.

Last year some valuable men, Bob Herrick, Jim Sullivan, Ray Fahey, and Ted Fitzgerald, graduated and therefore left some very important gaps to be filled. However, the candidates who reported for practice on April 6, seemed en- tirely capable of upholding the school's standard. Among these were Jack Doyle, one of the cities fastest four-forty men, Frank Zickas, a good half-miler, and Tom Murphy, who has been running the mile for the school for the past two years. Among the weight men there were John Olander, who weighs in at 185 and has great possibilities for the shot-putt, and Nunzio Scaringe, his team mate who also is a hefty of one hundred eighty pounds. ERNIE BURKART .Ninety 1937 Ulibe Clirussruahs BASEBALL GOLF 1937 The fllirnssruahs C Tllibe Varsity Cliluh Following the football season of 1936, Coach Dan Cunha called together all his varsity men and put before them the suggestion of a club for all those who had received a varsity letter for any of the major sports of football, basketball, baseball and track. The players liked the idea and began to work upon it. Before long officers were appointed to the positions of president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer, a constitution was drawn up and regulated meetings got under way. The requirements for membership in this club are as follows: First, the can- didate must receive a varsity letter in any major sport named above. Secondly, the candidate must undergo an initiation. The activities of the club are many, some of which are: the giving of dances for the benefit of the club, helping the Vincentian's School Men's Association in any way it cang attending Holy Communion in a body on first Fridays and the membership in the Nocturnal Adoration Society. Club dues are taken up by the treasurer four times a year and this money is set aside for the buying of awards for those senior members who will leave school at graduation, and for the buying of any equipment that may be needed by the NUNZIO SCARINGE . .

As a good beginning, we sponsored a Halloween Dance 0 in an artistically decorated gym, A laughing crowd of young people f danced to the tunes of Gene Strope's orchestra, the novelty of the eve- ning, the dancing of the Paul jones, by everyone present, aided in mak- ing this dance as highly successful as last yearls had been. Ninety-six 1 9 3 7 The Qlrussrnahsa On a Saturday afternoon, January 9, to be exact, the Senior Girls of the Ladyship class gave a tea dance under the chairmanship of Peggy O,Farrell. Mrs. Alexander a Smith, Mrs. Frank Sheehan, Mrs. Florence Burkhart, Mrs. Lawrence Baker, Ruth Aldridge, Doris Sheary, Helen :-- 1 Clark, and Betty Chartres acted as hostesses. One can 1 hardly imagine the scene which greeted one uponientering q 32, !'1' the gym which was decorated with blue and white crepe Q 1 G paper.

The orchestra surrounded 7 f by palms rendered a swanky touch to the lovely setting. f As evening drew near and the nooks and crannies of our Lf! fy "make-believe ballroom" were darkened, the candles were lit and tea, tiny sandwiches, and cakes were served by girls from the underclasses. To add a novel touch to the affair, dance programs were used. As the saying goes, ua good time was had by all" and that afternoon will linger in our memories as most enjoyable. St. Patrick's Day rolled around to find the whole class engrossed in plans for the annual Senior Party and Dance. Shamrocks and green crepe paper were the decorations used to de- clare our Irish ancestry. Members of the vari- ous classes furnished entertainment with our genial master of ceremonies. Tom Murphy, at the microphone. One of our own colleens showed us how the Irish jig is really danced. n Then, a charming young lady from the grades, a sister of one of our classmates, entertained us with toe-dancing. These and other enter- -4' i '- tainers together with a congenial group of young folks attending the dance aided in making this affair, which was under the chairmanship of Kathleen Walsh and Jack Dooley, one of the most fascinating social events of the year. These social highlights together with dances, sponsored by the underclass for our yearbook fund, and the'eagerly anticipated June Prom, which will conclude our graduation activities, will long remain in our memories as reminders of our pleasant years in Vincentian. DORIS SHEARY BETTY GRIFFIN J Ninety-seven A 1937 Gigs Cllrnssruahs library In September, 1932, Mrs. Matthew Carey resigned the office of President and was chosen Honorary President with Miss Mary E. Lanigan as active President. At the same time, Father Charles appointed as Secretary to succeed Miss Lanigan, Miss Mary T. O'Connell. Upon Miss Lanigan's resignation, in 1934, Miss Anna Lyon was chosen Presi- dent, and still holds that oHice. The office of Director has since been held by the Reverend James B. Bren- nock and is at present under the Reverend James Minehan. The Library Association, the Hrst women's organization of the parish, is com- posed of Volunteer workers who hope to continue this, their share of Catholic Action, even now when the reference and main libraries have been combined.

These six students are Mary Louise Weber, teacher of Germang Mario Spalt, instructor of Commercial subjectsg Anne Mary Gallagher, who teaches History B3 Betty Markham and Catherine Sherritt, General Scienceg and Kathleen McKiernan, who teaches English. Each member of this group is a representative of the graduating class of 1933.

The progress has been so rapid that there is, at present, an enrollment of over four hun- dred members, composed of mothers and friends of the school. These diligent women manifest a keen and unselfish interest in the betterment of the school. The activities of this organization are both social and charitable. Among its charitable enterprises are the sewing and knitting classes in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades, and the Charity Sewing Group which meets every week to sew for the poor. The social committee conducts fortnightly dancing classes under the instruction of a talented dancing teacher, this committee also supervises informal dances. The orchestra leader and the ladyship teacher for girls of high school age are sponsored by this organization. Another very commendable work is the service of First Friday breakfast in the cafeteria. All this work receives the co-operation and whole-hearted support of the Rev- erend Director, the Reverend William R. Charles. MR. LAWRENCE BAKER .... . President MRS. C. FREDERICK HOFFMAN .

This group of men are responsible for the sponsoring of the sports of the school, they furnish the coaches, uniforms, and player awards for the various sports. ln September, 1937, this group changed its name to Vincentian School Men's Association. The loyalty of this comparatively small group of men has been out- standing. They have not only continued the work of the Karlsfeld Association, but also put into effect many new schemes such as the Employment Bureau, new hockey rink, the partial sponsoring of the Students Activity Dinner. The main aim of this group is to improve the school and to make life at school more attrac- tive and agreeable. The ofhcers are: D:XVID J. ROACH, JR. . President ROBERT J.
