RATIGAN, Ed.torPublished by THE SENIOR CLASS OF FORDHAM COLLEGE OF FORDHAM UNIVERSITY c. THE MAROONWe ARE come, at last, to the sunlit heights four years of toil have won for us, and we pause. Our hearts are full. Unuttered things stir our souls, swell to our lips, and falter into silence because we know no words to give our thoughts expression or cur emotions vent. Yet we must try, who want the world to know our gratitude to the members of the Society of Jesus ♦ It is, then, our aspiration to set forth on the pages of this, our final undergraduate endeavor, an expression, however inadequate, of our obligation to the Society of Jesus, of our appreciation of the ideals in education for which it stands, and of our esteem for the scholars and educators who are its boast. God grant we may succeed.ST. • IGNATIUS • LOYOLA FOUNDER • OF • THE • SOCIETY • OF • JESUSIT is not our purpose to write at length of the founder of the Society of Jesus The familiar words "Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam" are an epitome of the character and spirit of Saint Ignatius Loyola. For, if greatness is the capacity to visual ze a worthy ob-ective and to strive heroically towards it, regardless of obstacles, then Ignatius was great, and great is the Society he founded. Glorious as have been the manifold successes of the Jesuits, in the sphere of education their prowess has displayed itself to best advantage. Here the same motive oredominates — the glory of God as the ultimate end of all human endeavor. The early fathers of the Society, imbued with the spirit of their founder, saw in the education of youth a most fertile field for their labors. With characteristic earnestness they set to work, under their general, Claude Aquaviva, to create a uniform code for the guidance cf future educators in the Society. After months and years of consideration, selection, rejection, the Ratio Studiorum was adopted as the Jesuit method of education, a systen which has remained essentially unchanged since its ratification in 1 599.The Spirit of the Ratio is contained in the two words which are the motto of Fordham University, "Sapientia et Doctrina." Doctrina pre-eminence in every branch of learning, thorough, profound knowledge, yet always governed by Saoientia true wisdom, the realization that sheer learning, learning as an end, not as a means to a higher goal, is as useless as it is pernicious. For four years our welfare has been the concern, our education the chosen duty, and our guidance the sacred trust of the members of the Society of Jesus. We have been trained in knowledge and in wisdom by men who are masters of the profane sciences, yet who, with a sweet and gentle persistence, have ever kept our eyes fixed on our ultimate goal -the glory of God and our salvation. Hence, our degree will signify more than mere proficiency in learning. It will be a guarantee that we stand accredited Catholic gentlemen, faithful to the traditions of Fordham, worthy of the title, ":o$ter sons of Saint Ignatius Loyola."John HUGHES was born on June 24,1797,at Annaloghan, in County Tyrone, Ireland. In 1 816, his father and younger brother emigrated to America, and settled in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. John followed in 18' 7, and the rest of his family the year after that, in 1820,hewas admitted to Mount Saint Mary’s College at Emmits-burg, Maryland,as a seminarian.With his ordination onOctoberl 5, 1826, he realized a desire with which he had been imbued from early youth. On January 8,1 838, Father Hughes was consecrated Bishop of Basilecpolis, and coadjutor to the Bishop of New York. In 1 850, Bishop Hughes was e evated to the archiepiscopate of the see of New ork. He died on January 3,1 864 ♦ Throughout his life Archbishop Hughes was a stout champion and a zealous promoter of the cause of Catholic education. As a champion, he overthrew the Public School Society in New York, after a bitter fight to halt the anti-Cathc ic administration of that organization. As a promoter, he founded and formally opened the College of Saint John the Baptist at Fordham on June 24, 1841. In 1846, St. John s was raised to the dignity of a University by the State Legislature. Later in the same year, the Archbishop delivered the University to the administration of the fathers of the Society of Jesus. They have not failed his trust.To the Reverend Francis P. Donnelly, of the Society of Jesus, who has won our esteem as an author, our affection as a teacher, and our love as a priest of God, we, the Senior ci ass of Fordham College, respectfully dedicate this record of our undergraduate days.HIS EMINENCE, PATRICK CARDINAL HAVES, D.

Life. then, must obviously he sonic tiling besides a mere howl of cherries. For one thing, it certain I) does look like a parade with all of ii in line. Now. to draw the evident conclusion from all this, our modern metaphor. Fordhum certainly has heen for us of the Class of 32 our training camp—fitting u- out to light the good light-—to run the good race. So. begins the parade . . . our parade. Flags IIy. Drums beat. nd the tramp of feet. . . . First—the raw recruits, drawn from the far Jersey hills, from busy Long Island towns, from sleepy New Fngland centers. I tier strangers to one another all here on the same golden quest- to fulfill the same voiceless command. I ntrained. in uneven ranks, unorganized, in funny red ties and funny red caps, they soon pass out of view. The second company follows soon after: the ties and caps are conspicuously missing. In their stead we see big round buttons labelled. " igilance Committee. Last names have been dropped: “Joes" and "Jacks" substituted. The Jersey hills are not so very far ayy ay. after all: neither do the Ncy Fngland toyvns seem quite so sleepy . Then, this second company. too. goes on its quick w ay to disappear down the long stretch of the field. The third division comes on immediately. The definite, steady linger of faithful training is beginning to leave the sure imprint of its indefinable touch. The march has quickened. The step has become knitted into a deliberate pace. I ndcr the expert tutelage of that grand and great army from Manresa. tlie gaze has groy n steady, tin grip firm, tin purpose set. ith the disappearance of the third division, there moves into our gladdened view the last and best corps no longer rays recruits, but finished and polished—garbed in lull dress regalia a black cap and a black gown, and held fast in each hand a precious sheepskin. We hope that yve shall meet somehoyy. someyyhere, again and still again. So it is with this one thought and feeling that we noyy begin our short and formal review of the four year history of the Class of '32. Like a priceless piece of exquisite music played over and over in the quiet twilight. when the sisters three past, present ami to In—melt into one. such days, years and times yvitli their clinging memories of faces and friends are not to be had and cherished in vain. but. in that soft haunting melody , plucked from the vibrant strings of memory. these our recollections and reflections are to recur again and again to be rcnicmliercd ever and ever . . . never to be forgotten never. 1 28 . . . Freshmen! Highlights. We read in the class history. "The first act has drayyn to a close. The actors have spoken and played their parts y ith distinction. They have yvon fame and glory that yyiII reflect upon themselves and on their associates. The first act hasreyealed and produced great talent and ability. The beginning of our play has been so auspicious that it augurs yy el I for the remaining three acts. The great expectations and promises will begin to crystallize until they are completely realized in the grand and glorious climax of the fourth and final act." Prophetic Cassandra! Collins uditorium. red caps and two dollars. Ford ham Road rallies and Webster Vvenue trolleys. Vigilance Committees and Interclass contests. The outcome? We have forgotten. It is nicer that yvav. Still the fine old classics— Cicero and his good companions. Class elections. F. Clay Buckhout becomes the first class president of 32. For his colleagues Clay had William F Kuhn as y ice-president. Frank I. Rio us treasurer, and Ralph O. Dates as secretary. In February came the new and yveleomcd addition, the February class, strong ami yyilling to swell our ranks. Fyen as far back as then. 1()32 had its children conspicuously in the many extracurricular actiyities of the college. In the field of drama good old precedent was politely but very deliberately placed aside to allow an utter stranger ami newcomer on the Fordham stage to play the title role in the Bard of von’s tragic "Othello." {ZORDWAMII u 1 9 3 2.

Sophomores now. and the tables arc turned. igilantes. dispensers of the handy hook of rules and collectors of two dollars. . Bingham Co succeeded Bnckhout to become Sophomore and second president of ’32. assistants to help him in his official duties there were Johnny Hayes as ice-president. Dave (Berber as secretary. Bax Smith as treasurer and Boh Pisani as representative. Partieularlx worthy of note for that year was the Rhetorical cademx and the Vergilian Celebration sponsored by the class of Sophomore under the learned guidance of the well knoxxu author and educator. Bex. Francis P. Donnelly. S.J.. professor of that Class. In the annual varsitx production of the Mimes and Mummers, we can remember xxell Horace . McNally, playing the title role of Antonia in Shakespeare's ’"Merchant of cilice;" the handsome, romantic ardor of W . Bingham Cox’s liassanio and Robert B. Collins cleverly played portrayal of the fair Portia. In the Varsitx One- ct Play Contest, held under the auspices of the Mimes and Mummers, three Sophomores presented plax . "The Fugitive, bx W illiam . W ard. "Oedipus Maior” bx James Bacon Sullixan. and "Prisoner's Base" by Joseph F. Coughlin. Mr. Coughlin won the first prize as plax xvright. and Messrs. 'I'homas F.

Norman l.cbocuf received distinction as Glee Club accompanist. W helan. W bite and Poxver -till continued to exhibit their natatorial skill in the gym’s shiny pool. Comer ford. Conroy. Maxes. Hurley. Mulligan and Parker developed into the promised varsity prospects. On the diamond Comcrford. the Coyle brothers. Daxis. Fisher. Murphy.

Mis prowess as a lightweight is well known to the class by observation or conversation. It was a sad blow to Jack and. we believe, a sad loss to Fordham. Foiled here. Jack tried to break into the Varsity football lineup, but he was too light. He was. however, heavy enough to have left deep purple impressions on us in interclass games.

Most college men boast only a long list of school acquaintances; Bill has formed warm friendships that will not terminate with the joys of the brief years spent within our walls.

In the Glee Club. too. we found Frank giving vent to his vocal abilities. The melody of many a song was carried along by his resonant voice. Frank’s favorite study was biology, and often did lie deliver interesting discourses at the meetings of the Mendel Club. When we first met Frank we thought him very retiring and bashful, but we soon learned, having pierced his modesty, that he was quite the opposite. If we were to extol his accomplishments, he would immediately change the subject, placing someone whom he thought more deserving in the limelight. He has been well gifted with a keen sense of humor, and we shall never forget his mirth inspiring retorts and his jocose conversations.

He has never figured prominently in any group activity; his inclinations have led him to indulge in sports and activities requiring individual skill. Handball and tennis are avocations in which his prowess is not only evident but outstanding. An introspective sort, he is uncommonly conscious of his own limitations; being modest, he is not exuberant over his real abilities, physical or intellectual. So it is. that, in his unassuming way. he has always delighted in remaining in the background. As a student, from his primary grades to his Senior year. Larry has effortlessly attained a high ranking: yet he is the last one whom anyone could charge with being conceited. He is an able musician and performs on the violin and the saxophone equally well. In these instruments he finds relaxation. and an outlet for his sensitive temperament. Beyond this. Larry is a possessor of that rare quality a real inquiring mind. He takes nothing for granted or upon authority but. once a statement has measured up to his criterion of truth, he staunchly defends his intellectual position.

He became a prominent figure on thecampus.court, and field, and remained an outstanding personage for the rest of his college career. Still. Jim's activities were not confined to the athletic field alone, for all of Fordhanfs major social events have seen Jim acting perfectly the part of the polished college man that he most certainly is. He has been a staunch member of the Nutmeg Club since his Freshman year, and a great part of its success is due to Red's unflagging interest in its affairs, whether social or not. Although a science man he has balanced his courses with electives in the fine arts, selected with a care clearly indicating his broad cultural tastes.

Besides sharpening his already keen intellect, and broadening his outlook on life along v C? many ultra-conformed lines. the have furnished him with innumerable occasions upon which lie might propound his favorite political theories. For. as you know, politics are Anthony's weakness. In fact, he is a veritable storehouse of political information. Not only is lie an authority with regard to his home town political situation, hut he is also thoroughly acquainted with the general run of national politics. Chris is also an ardent football fan. and his mind is crammed with statistics and stories of the game. Ilis knowledge of sports however. is not limited to football, hut also includes an intimate acquaintance with basketball, baseball and track. Ilis chief hobby, outside of talking football and discussing track, is hiking, of which he never tires, lie claims that walking and hiking are the most beneficial of all exercises, not only physically, but also mentally. Chris intends to take up medicine, and of his qualifications for such a career, there can be no doubt. Perhaps he may take it upon himself, in some medical research work, to discuss the physical benefits of walking, and its relation to football. I 115 FORDHAM 1932Italian Club. 2.

At first we were of the opinion that this was an absolute impossibility, but Joe soon dispelled this delusion on that subject. For, with the same ease that he turned the sentences of Horace and Cicero into fine F.nglish. he mastered the Ionic theory. Newton's laws of gravity and the phyla of the Animal Kingdom.

Frank, a center by trade, was forced to play this position. Finally in Senior year, he had the opportunity to shine in his proper sphere and we had a strong, heady center who proved a slashing linesman on the offense, whose knowledge proved ballast for the linesmen beside him. Perhaps the greatest game of his career was played before his home town folks in Boston when he smashed the B. (!. line- to pieces and tore gaping holes through which his teammates could march. That was Frank's day. and he made the most of it. Ilis athletic prowess tends to overshadow his other characteristics and abilities. Those who did not know him well think he cares little- for other pursuits, but in the genial atmosphere of a friendly gathering, he is at his best, lie can tell story after story with his slow drawl and Bostonian accent and keep many a hoarder away from bed.

Ed’s unruly brown locks, knowing brown orbs and sun-tanned (in autumn) complexion. Though he has been a boarder for four years, he journeys each week-end to bis Brooklyn home. Here at Pordham. Ed was often found in the gym. leisurely swimming or taking bis regular workout: or. weather permitting, one could sec his devotion to baseball, and to the enthusiastic, if unskilled, intramural football games. For the chilly winter months. Don turned his attention to the drama, and was well known for his intelligent criticisms. On the stage crew lie works like a Trojan, bosses the actors, always knows where "that gadget" is and when tostrike the chimes offstage.

Throughout his entire college career, he has maintained that high scholastic standard which he set for himself as soon as he appeared in our midst. To see him walking about the campus, one would never think that he possessed that deep insight into all our difficulties, and that consoling spirit. To him we always went with our troubles, and they would hurst into air before his words of wisdom. During his Freshman and Sophomore years. Frank w as an esteemed member of the R. (). T. (!. His diligence in military training was rewarded when his squad received first prize in the special Squad drills, an accomplishment due to his thorough knowledge of tactics. A desire for further C C education in other fields cut short his very successful military career. A debater of no mean ability . Frank spent most of his spare moments within the sacred portals of the Council of Debate. Here many of us who were fortunate listened to his well developed arguments, which were delivered in the best of English and showed every indication of careful preparation. Frank also displayed his talents on the stage and in short story writing. His accomplishments will be remembered as praiseworthy triumphs. We expect to hear from Frank again, when lie has become a prominent member of the bar association. FORDHAM 1932 Partheninb $odnfitv I. 2 Council of Debate. 3. 1 Hughes Debuting Society.

The ceaseless howling «»f that musical instrument must have driven him into a state of seclusion, for now we find ourselves trying to write nice things about him when he never even gave us the opportunity of knowing his middle name. Should we say he was quiet and reserved;' Well, you might have gathered as much by a mere glance at the first paragraph. I tut then Jack wouldn't want us to tell you all his characteristics, lie is too modest for that: so modest that we are surprised that his picture appears at the top of the page. With regard to his scholastic standing Jack is better than average. We know he wouldn't want us to say that he is an excellent student. To do so would not be in keeping with his outstanding trait. However, we are taking the liberty to say that he has been honored more than once for his high class rank. Jack had few extra-curricular activities, but to these he gave his best efforts. In conclusion, let us sax that it is our fondest hope that, wherever he hap| cns to be. he will always remember us. who are still wondering why so few knew the real Jack.

But Bill is one of these for. after he had mastered a difficult course in Latin and a more difficult one in Pedagogy. Bill turned about in Senior, and applied himself to Organic Chemistry. Furthermore, he was an active member of the Mendel Club. If a book-lined room is any indication, bis taste in literature is as varied and cultivated as a scholar's. Though of Celtic stock, his literary inclination is in the direction of German. “William Tell" being bis favorite story and Ludwig his favorite author. However, lie does not neglect English literature, for Bill confesses that the works of D. B. Wyndhani Lewis impress him deeply. However, despite his literary background.

Many times we have seen the midnight oil burning brightly while George diligently prepared his work for the next day.

As a singer he has lent his natural abilities, but as a director of the Club we have witnessed the fruits of his able and untiring leadership. He capped four years of active membership by capahlx managing the 1932 Town Mali Concert, an outstanding presentation in the history of the organization. That it was outstanding is attributable only to his energetic management. The same dauntless energy and the same un-swer ing determination to bring a difTieiilt task to a successful conclusion has been exhibited in his application to his classwork. Here, as in other fields, lie has made a record which is enviable in iew of the demands made upon his time h extracurricular activities.

To this day, he has carefully and deliberately labored toward this goal, and none can deny that he has not had considerable success. He has proven that careful study ami diligent application cannot fail to set a mark of distinction on him who so studies and applies himself. Much could be said about Jim. He achieves his ends without ostentation or aggression, lie has natural reticence which makes him more esteemed by his friends. He is always willing to lend a helping hand when asked and time and again has re- P? r vealed those stalwart qualities which lie behind his calm and indifferent exterior, and which are the bulwarks of his character. For four years he has pursued the sciences and has developed an objective, searching, and truly scientific mind. Upon leaving Fordham he intends to cast his lot with the medicos and we feel sure that the admirable trails which he has manifested here will stand him in good stead and enable him to overcome all obstacles in his upward climb to the goal of his ambition. When Jim has reached the heights to which he aspires we feel sure that the same generous unchangeable nature which has been shown us here at Fordham in his student days will guide his every action.

Kveryonc knows that he is a fine athlete, a fine fellow, and a fine friend. What can we say of his physical characteristics but reiterate the phrase hackneyed by his friends within and beyond Fordham's •nates— ‘he $ small and wiry." Shall we repeat that lie's a clever quarterback, a fast runner, a quick thinker? Apparently all these qualifications suit Jack admirably but he is more than a good quarterback. During the balmy weather Jack shines at second base. At the plate he is one of the most dangerous hitters on the team. Four years of stardom on the gridiron and the diamond is something few men can claim. We also posited that Jack was a fine fellow. Isn't this proved by tin fact that he, together with his buddy Tip Tobin, was elected co-captain of the big nine? Do any but regular fellows win that honor? Then again. Johnny occupied the president's chair of the Massachusetts Club in Senior year. What further evidence is needed to substantiate our proposition? Lastly, we predicated that Jack was a fine friend. Of course, Jack is not a "hail fellow" type, and there are few who are really intimate with him. but from what we hear, we know that he has that generosity, that unselfishness, which is the prerequisite for real friendship.

In the livingroom or on the porch, on the waxed floor or the glassy pond, on the boulevard or in the park, he is equally at home. Jim's activities, however, are not wholly social. He is a student, as is e ideneed by the nonchalance and ease with which he grasped all scholastic matters. Too. he is an athlete, as is shown by his prowess on the basketball and tennis courts. Jim has the courage of his convictions and is willing to debate his point with anyone. Such a spirit must needs appeal to the hearts of men and we are quite sure that he has little to fear from the obstacles that clutter the pathway to success in the medical world. His generous open nature has made him a favorite with all. and it is with something more than a passing regret that we clasp his hand and tell him "be good." FORDHAM 1932 Sodality. 1.2.3.

Books, and not men. were his best companions. t this point you might come to the conclusion that John was rather quiet and was not a good mixer. That is exactly the meaning that we wish to convey. About his other qualities we know little, lie prefers to remain the man about whom the least is said. And he has succeeded.

There it was that John excelled as he sped down the field twisting and gyrating, shaking off the anxious grasp of taeklers until the last white line was crossed. Though this is John's great claim to fame at Fordham it is not his only one to recognition in the hearts and minds of his fellows. John has been called the most eccentric man of his class but to interpret this in the strictest sense would be to do him an injustice. For it is only those who have not been initiated into the circle of his friends who so name him. Those who beheld him with the piercing eyes of friendship see him as one given to unbounded generosity and sincerity, in both thought and action. His sense of humor, bordering on the mischievous, has often enlivened the existence of those who spent four years in his pleasant company. Blessed with a perfect bod , John is a natural athlete, starring also in track. His form and speed over the hurdles have won for him everlasting fame in the sport arenas of Fordham. Many a metropolitan competition has felt the tremendous enthusiasm of his character. In short, he has revealed himself as a true advocate of all that enters into the essence of real sportsmanship.

The capacity for accomplishing a great amount of work with facility, the faculty of assimilating knowledge easily, and the ambition to reach a definite objective have made him an outstanding student and have marked his college course with the greatest success. A degree in dental surgery is Paul's goal. As June draws aside the veil of the future, we peer through and behold the distant horizon, rosy with promise and hope. Success beckons!

But it is not frequent that we find Don's countenance expressive of scholastic worry, for such preparation cannot go unrewarded. Being of a quiet and retiring disposition, he nevertheless has a humane and romantic side to his nature, which finds nourishment in extensive and intensive reading. Like studying, reading matter cannot be too serious for him. and the more effort it requires to he digested, the more he seems to enjoy it. Not infrequently has he supplied fellow Students with literary matter suitable to their courses.

So. for two and a half years, we find him one of Brother Quinn's most popular hoarders. F en though he was a devotee of Morpheus, he always found time to take part inoutsideaeti ities. W hen Jim joined the Stage Irew in Freshman, lie was made an eleetrieian. It washisdutx to pull the switches that ga e the stage its wonderful lighting effects. B Junior lie had won the title of Chief Fleetrician. thleties. however, are Jim's real forte. Mum of us remember that football game in lunior between the Stage ( rew and the Ham Staff, when Jim ran through the entire Ram team, time and again, to make decisive gains, lie was the captain of iiilermural football. Jim is a kindhearted fellow, who is willing to sacrifice his own interests for those of some one else, lie is always read with his sane and cheerful advice, flies are just two reasons why we expect him to he a success when he finally reaches his goal. FORDHAM 1932 2 I’d JAMES II. McK W. H.S. ST. GNES HIGH SCHOOL Jim came uptown to lordliam with every good intention in the world. He was out to do great tilings, hut. when lie saw the size of our class in Freslnnan. he gasped once or twice, and retired into the background. Since that moment lie has heen quiet. He is a companionable fellow, a good student, a keen bridge player and a humorist. W i111 regard to size Jim is not such a big fellow, but. in the dynamic qualities of his diminutive stature, lie packs the pep and the vitality of a dozen two-hundred-pounders. In class he is a restful sort, quiet and unassuming, but with the vast, deceptive calm of a caged tiger, lb can spot a professorial error two days away, ami revels in pointing it out. He came to us on a scholarship, and keeps the high record of his entrance in all the wide variety of courses in the science curriculum. Mac prefers bridge to almost any indoor recreation, but during the season, baseball claims his every free moment. The Giants never had a more enthusiastic fan in New York. For our class team Mac turned in a brand of ball that was unbeatable. The fire and the quiet ambition that have carried him so successfullv through these years at Fordham will surely have some commensurate effect upon his future. Knowing Jim as we do. we believe heartilv and sincerelv that lie will succeed. FORDHAM 1932 Mm,id Club. ; Soiluliiv. I. l I nhrclrfss liusnball. 3. I Interclass Basketball.

Maintaining as high a scholastic standing as he does. Ed is always besieged with questions by his classmates and it is his unfailing willingness to help solve the various difficulties of his fellow students that marks him as wholly unselfish. This may. perhaps, seem only a trivial thing to mention in looking hack over the whole of a man’s college career, but it is actually an important indication of his character. He who is ready to aid his friend in the difficult and sometimes tedious matter of studies will not he found wanting when called upon by that friend in other circumstances. If Ed were less shy we might have known him much sooner and appreciated the many faceted brilliance of his character. High ratings in one’s studies usually connote effort and perseverance. This is doubly true in Ed’s case: for. with a regularity that only severe illness can mar. he makes a daily journey in from Greenwich. Travel itself is fatiguing enough, but to commute daily and still maintain an admirable scholastic record bespeaks not only a strong and healthy intellect, but also a tremendous amount of will |K wcr and an indomitable spirit. It would take a man more than merely foolish to predict anything but success for the mentally brilliant, physically determined and wholly unselfish Ed. F O R D H A M 19 3 2FRANCIS . MckENN . .B.

That regard for things in general characterizes Frank in all his relations, he it Ram assignments, a German Club talk, or sodality attendance. However, this auburn haired fellow has his lighter moments and finds his chief diversion in sports, particularly tennis and handball, lie has server! on the weekly as assistant sports editor and spent many joyful hours watching the athletes of his Alma Mater engage with the chosen ones of other institutions. The supreme thrill of his recollection was the victory over the Eagles of Boston College two years ago. That, he says, was the greatest copy lie ever submitted for publication. His most embarrassing moment at Fordham took place at the Freshman One-Act Plays when the "phone in his play refused to ring and hasty lines had to be inserted to cover the missing cue. In the same production poor Frank's light complexion became still more crimson when the prop cigars crumbled in his hand as he vainly strove to light the ancient weed. These are the memories he likes to pore over in his leisure moments; these are part of the happenings that made his college career a time worth living. Soda it v f'Rnm." Cor nut n Fresh nu t, I Cut .

George is exemplary in his studies: he has taken possession of Kordham in all of its ramifications, and has given the best of himself in her interest. n excellent writer, he has been outstanding in the Ouill Club, the Ram and the dramatic organizations of the campus. Taken all in all. George is a typical Kordham man. self-sacrificing, generous, smiling, a real friend and a worker, lie has discovered how to appU himselftohisstudies without making it savor of drudgerv; how to take a deep and worthwhile interest in all that Kordham stands for. and yet not slight the essentials. Rut it is not alone his pleasant nature, his literary ability, nor even his faeultx for success in study that makes George the fellow that we know.

While he never sought to distinguish himself, still he drew attention to himself by his understanding of his studies and by his ability to appreciate and solve the problems of his associates. This willingness on his part to co-operate lias done a great deal toward our understanding and appreciation of Owen as a friend. It marks him as a true friend. Mac is preparing to be a pedagogue, and for this profession we feel he is admirably suited.

Tom Maher enjoys the reputation of a man who has faced his work with eagerness, and completed it with satisfaction. His popularity argues that his efforts in our behalf have not been unappreciated. A friendly smile and a nod of recognition from practically every Fordham student whom he passes on the campus is Tom’s reward. Of his social contacts on and off the campus, we need only consult those with whom he spent his free time. At dances, occasional parties, in the midst of boarder "hull sessions" ami at the big games, Tom invariably lent a welcome air of joviality, always matching his wits, when the opportunity arrived, with his more voluble friends. In his company, we have found wholesome fun at all times, for Tom Maher never forgot that he was a Fordham man. and consequently, a gentleman of the first order.

Always up to something, many a hearty laugh we've gained from the variety of his pranks. Bill's character, howev er, is well balanced by a more serious side in things suited to his taste. In Junior, it was philosophy that gained his attention, and as a result, classes which were on the verge of he coming a grind took on an interest which has remained with him to the end. Aside from studies. Bill has spent most of his time around school dashing about the basketball court with as much abandon as one man could muster, and in Bill's case, that's plenty. Baskethanging is not his line. Those long shots are his P “ P special!v. As is evident, this entails accuracy of aim and precision in timing. Yes, Bill can toss them from the mid-court.

The roles he has played here at school. though diverse and varied, have always been the same in one respect: all have been well done. He has taken an especial interest in athletics either as a player or as a rabid supporter when not in the thick of the melee himself. I nassuming by nature in the classroom. he is quite a different fellow on the gridiron or the basketball court. Ile has few superiors in the art of hall carrying and of sinking shots from midcourt. Although he proved himself a racquet vvielder of no mean ability in his Freshman year, still he has reserved that game as a diversion. Phil is a Thespian, too. His performance in Sophomore will long be remembered by those who had the good fortune to be present at tlie varsitv plav of that vear. Kndowed with the qualities of a good mixer, lie has gained the sincere friendship of his fellows. Their choice of him as class representative in Junior proved that. For four years he has been a man representative of bis class. We are sure he will be. iu the world outside, an alumnus truly representative of his college. Sodality. I. 2. 3. d Tennis.

Seriousness of purpose and a regard for the fleeting hour prompt him to act on his own initiative and outstrip the herd. K.ach one has. in his estimation, a dut to set himself in a definite sphere which appeals to his inner longings. To discover this, a contemplation of one's self is necessary. Vt all times it has been clear to us that "Novo” sought, and succeeded in discovering, the method for complete abstraction from mundane affairs. However, we do not want to give the impression that Casimir is a dreamer. 15 no means! lie lias been always intcuselv practical: these moods we speak of are but the preparatory phases of future activity. In those frequent moments of solitude he seeks within the library, one knows that he is wrestling with a problem of import to his outlook on life. To shield himself from intrusion he has acquired a facility for casting verbal darts that repel the acquaintanceship of those not congenial in spirit. Consequently his circle of friends is narrowed. ami restricted to those who possess kindred likes and dislikes which are unified b a principle of serious intent. 262 FORDHAM 1932CHARLES E. OBERLE. A.B. FOR Dll AM PREPARATORY SCHOOL ty hen enumerating the intelligentsia of our ▼ Senior class, it becomes our pleasant dut to place Charles among the foremost. He has that calm, penetrating and quizzical turn of mind so essential to the student of philosophy. In psychology, which appears to he his favorite subject, he has asked more questions than all the rest of u» put together. His questions were horn of keen attention and often led to the clarification of important points to the satisfaction of the entire class. Fordham debating teams in the past can boast no more forceful an exponent of the forensic art than Charlie, llis accurate analyses and blasting C refutations cut verbal holes in the arguments of the opposition. In the Senior Ethical Symposium. Charles took an important part. Yet. in our opinion, he is best known for the roles which lie has played in the course of his four years as an actor in Fordham theatricals. We will not soon forget liis portrayal of the old Irish mother in "With A Rising Moon." as she wept with tender emotion over the body of one Maurice McCarthy. If the success which has attended Charlie in his college years is any criterion, as we are certain it is.wecau foresee nothing lessthan brilliant triumph for this splendid and accomplished fellow classmate.

Jack goes through each day. never glancing hack, ever looking forward. To mourn over past events is an offense against all his principles, so. with his face set resolutely toward the future. Jack meets Life. In the classroom we find Jack a conscientious worker whose efforts are characterized by a deliberation that delves into the most minute details of the subject matter. Jack is quick to solve a trick problem, and sure in his understanding of it. B his refusal to become excited or drawn off the subject. Jaek remains master of the situation and "conies through." Endowed with that patience common to most good-natured people, he will tirelessly explain a difficult) to anyone who asks his aid. This easy-going, good nature is best revealed on the athletic fields. In the heat of the game "Obic" plays with a grin on his face that keeps any antagonist friendly. Beyond the campus we are certain his efforts shall he crowned by the rewards his patience and good nature deserve. 2( I F O R D H A M 19 3 2BFKVYKD J. O'CONNKLL. A.B.

Ilisaetiv ities on hehalf of the college have been manifold. It hardly seems possible for one man to crowd into his college career so many important deeds and do them well. But Bernie did. and with a mild air of ease. The greatest of honors which can be voted a member of the Senior class was ltestowed overwhelmingly upon him. that of being selected by the entire student body as the most popular man at Fordham. He worked diligently for his school ami was fittingly rewarded. In reflecting on his characteristics, one characteristic stands pre-eminent, his air of suavity. An adept at the art of conversation and a master of argumentation, he is the personification of the true gentleman. As an orator he stood head and shoulders above the others in his class. Time and time again ca-paeitv audiences in Collin's Auditorium thrilled to his convincing voice ami his persuasive arguments. Bernie is a born leader and will travel far over the road of life with a host of willing followers at his hack, ready recruits for his crusade against those who would suppress his righteousconvictions.

Studies are a means to an end. he felt, not an end in themselves, and so he has relegated them to an accurately’ estimated position where they occupy enough of his time to keep him in good standing scholastieallv vet not make of him a grind.

On Jack, the mantle of leadership falls with ease and accustomed folds, for he has shown himself to be especially adept at handling business affairs, and men as well. At Fordham. this became particularly evident after the graduating class entrusted to his care the editorship of the class annual. This task entails the closest supervision on the part of the man in charge and. in appointing Jack to fulfill this duty, the graduates displayed well-founded discernment. He gave himself, unstintingly. to the management of the Maroon and to its attendant difli-culties. But it was a labor of love, and he counts the hours of toil as well spent. As it was with the yearbook, so it was with all that he undertook; he dealt w ith each problem in an efficient, methodical fashion. First an outline, and then an idea of the whole was sought by him and. with this obtained, he doggedly pursued his ideal. The class, recalling that "no duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks." bestowed upon him another and a crowning honor in the Senior elections by voting him the. man who had done most for the class.

His hobbies are handball and football; the thing most characteristic of him is his sense of fair play, and. next to that, his sportsmanship. Joe has been an outstanding member of the Italian Club, and was one of those pioneers instrumental in the founding of that organization. It was partly due to his foresight that the club became one of the leading organizations on the campus. and mainly due to his activity that many pleasant social functions were held under its auspices. During our Freshman year we recall that Joe aspired to membership on our track team, and daily he was observed training for that purjiose. Just what caused his untimely decision to drop that sport is unknown, but it is an unfortunate fact. Those students of the game made strong predictions that some day he would be well known in the world of athletics. e wish him success in proportion to his talented ability. It is his desire, we have been informed, to become a physician. In such a vocation one needs not luck and best wishes, but skill and talent. Joe has all he needs. FORDHAM 1932FRANCIS I. ROCKKS. .B.

It took us quite a while to become acquainted with him hut. now that we know him. we feel our efforts have not been in vain. Vi e have been pleased to speak with him on many subjects. We know him for a deep thinker who willingly imparts all the results of his labors to others. In this willingness of Frank to share the fruits of his work so unselfishly. we found the secret of the admiration and respect of his classmates. Frank leaves us as modest a man as he was in Freshman. In whatever field he chooses, he will succeed. Ilis unselfishness and generosity will win him more friends than he needs.

Vs president of the St. John Rerehmaus' Sodality he did excellent work but his best job was done as chairman of the finest Christmas dance the Connecticut Club ever held. Leo took a decided interest in Mount St. Vincent and New Rochelle, or rather, they took an interest in him.

On the basketball court he played with the same spirit of abandon. No interclass contest was complete yvithout Bill's imposing presence. In class Hill was not one of those studious fellows. but rather one who saw in education a background and pattern for his life in the world outside. Accordingly, though lie was seriously attentive. he was never a grind. As we see him now. he has attained the end of his stay at school, namely. a well rounded development of his faculties and abilities.

It has ever been a mystery to us how so big a man could travel with so much speed. Serious in the classroom, once outside it seemed hard to realize that this man whose countenance held an ever ready smile, whose witticisms amused everyone, was one and the same person. It is with the utmost regret that many will greet Commencement Dav. for it will bring us to the parting of the ways with one whom it was most pleasing to know and whom everyone was glad to consider a friend.

CATHKDR VI. COLLEGE (”'i korge spent his first two years at Cathedral. T but in our opinion, his best two years were those spent here at Ford ham. He wasn’t a man who accumulated a long list of activities hut he did win a host of friends. How he did it is a mystery. George isn’t the boisterous storv spinner or the “hail, fellow" type. In fact he is so quiet, even taciturn, so soft-spoken. that his presence would never he noticed were it not for his soft, slow smile, his general air of friendliness, the sincerity of his hand-clasp. His smile is a fixture on his face. It never wholl disappears. Even in his most serious moments traees of it linger around the corners of his mouth, ready to race across his countenance at a hailing shout. About that air of friendliness. The man is positively wrapped in it. It forms a sort of protecting wall about him against which his personal trials and troubles heal in vain. The only thing that can make a breach, from our experience, is some trial or trouble of ours. A hundred times his advice and his heartening clasp have braced our failing confidence in ourselves. Here it is customary to wish a man success. Ihit, if success will do to George what it does to so many men part them from their friends, then we refuse to do so. We want him always for a friend.

However, athletics were not his only interest. He was frequently seen at meetings and in organizations where diplomacy and arbitration were th order of the dav. We admired him more for his affability than for his skill in argumentation, though the latter was no mean attainment of his. He had firm convictions on all controversial questions: his courage in steadfastly' adhering to his convictions won him the respect not only of those whose opinions he shared but also of those with w hom he differed.

Here is the real Dick, earnest, sincere, fiercely loyal to his friends and friendly with everyone. lie is known all around the campus for his ability to accomplish things with the greatest amount of efficiency and the least amount of talk afterwards. In his Junior year lie joined the Mimes and Mummers and was appointed property manager after his first show. This unusual action was certainly justified since the credit for the excellence of future performances was in no small measure due to Dick's enthusiastic and painstaking efforts. Devotion to his friends and the organizations of which he was a member extended to a lively support of th«‘ varsitv teams. Manx of us will never forget the Boston trips we made with Dick, nor his characteristic Barney Oldfield driving. Beneath the baskets or on the diamond. Dick in the bitter contests of interclass competition has not only home himself well and shown the strength ami determination of his character, but has revealed a graining of that bit of iron which has made the name and fame of old Ireland's sons. He was always ready to do his bit and did it. Perhaps that best characterizes the Dick we all knew. FORDHAM 1932WILLIAM A. WARD. A.B. ST.

At times his store of knowledge seems infinite. smooth undercurrent of humor colors his discussion. Intelligence is his outstanding characteristic, and yet it is tempered with a refreshing indifference to the curriculum. Born with a poetic soul, his continual delving into the classics has truly given him a cultural as well as a liberal education. Although inclined to he moody and temperamental, he has a warm and pleasing personality. His keen wit and soft smile have made him many friends, lie is the originator of wills sayings and the coiner of phrases that live in campus life. He is noted as a playwright whose plays have invariably won their audience. His works are marked by a naturalness of situation and character and by a sparkling dialogue. He is pleased if you tell him that in this he resembles Noel Coward. He is well aware of his talents and readily, and almost indifferently, concedes them. With a final wave, we hid farewell to Bill, our wit, our man of letters, and our friend. We are loathe to part with him. We will never part with our memory of him.

And his puns...... Despite this jocose attack on Andy's kindly humor we must admit that his sterling character and his quiet ability have won our whole-hearted friendship and esteem. In interclass competition he has labored ardently in defense of every inch of ground won in those titanic football epics, and has tossed many a ball through the hoop in the friendly massacres we called basketball games. He has won the laurel in every fray, whether he won or lost. He knows how to win and how to lose. We hope that the banner lie bears into the battle of lile will remain as unsmirched as the one he bore here. 328 FORDHAM 19 3 2KDW VKD F. W TKRMAN. V.B.

Developed b this training of his native talent, lie was chosen by his fellows to lead the team.

In this manner did we first become aware of Ralph. Despite the wearisome task of traveling to long Island, and of working at night. Ralph always had time for a cheery word and friendly greeting.

There was nothing spectacular about his performances, nothing to compel experts to write columns about, but none of us can recall when Connie failed to hold down his post with credit. When West Point blew the linal taps for Cadet Richard Brinsley Sheridan and Kordhaui sent her condolences to the bereaved cadet's family, no one ever dreamed that the Angel of Death would take Connie from us. 'i et only a few weeks later, lie passed a wav as a result of a hemorrhage caused by a head injury sustained in the Buckncll encounter at the Polo (Grounds on November the 21st.

Joe Zapustas and Bart McDonnell upheld the Junior banner on the gridiron: Jerry Radice on the basketball court: Joseph P. McCluskey on the cinder paths and pine boards. Joe Zapustas has been hampered by a leg injury since his Freshman days and consequently has by no means shown us his best work on the gridiron to date. Next fall it is most probable that Joe will be the man that the opponents will have to stop in the Fordham baekfield. Bart McDonnell is also a member of the baekfield. hut has not been seen very often in action. On the diamond Bart is at home. McDonnell and apustas are tlx two most reliable batters that Jack Coffey possesses. Who has forgotten that warm Saturday afternoon last summer when Burt stepped up to the rubber and baptized the new hall field with a home run into right field against Scion Hall? How tnanv homers would be added to Zapustas' list if some kind of a fence surrounded the hall field, especially near the lower part of the Gymnasium Building?

W illiugly they set to work and it was not long before the traditional Freshman regalia was seen on all parts of the campus, being worn by youths w ho stead fast l clung to the cobbles. It is not to be siippo-rd from the above statement that the Sophomorie tyranny was entirely unresisted, for. as igilanccman Dan leAulilTe can testify, open rebellion was eneountered on se eral fronts, before the passage of a week, however, the Sophs wen found to be in complete control and the temporary masters of the situation, a state of affairs which was short-lived, indeed. For the young men of 33 proved to be spirited fellows, and freed themselves from the yoke of Sophomore oppression by a stirring victory in the interelass competition. Rut it is time that we turned from I his engrossing topic to take up the matter that really concerns us. namely, the doings of the Sophomore class. Seemingly tin-liamjMTrd hy the demands of class work upon their time, the men of 31 are found engaged in nearly all of the colleges extra-curricular activities, both athletic and non-athictic. F.arly in December, on the 10th and 111h. to be exact, the annual effort ol the "Mimes and Mummers" was presented. Shakespeare’s "Twelfth Night was the play chosen and several Sophomores acquitted themselves verv well in the more prominent roles. Robert (lox as Sir Tnhv lielcli and William Scliolz as I (dentine 346 ■FORD-HAM1 • 9 3 2_ gained great applause from the audience by their excellent portrayals, while Fred IVesc. in the extremely difficult part of Maria. (Olivia's gentlewoman) gave a convincing jR rfoniianee. bile these wortb Thespians were engaged before the footlights, other members of their class were lnis behind the scenes with props and ropes. On their shoulders rested a great deal of the responsihilit for tin play's success, and they arc to be heartily congratulated for the excellent background against which the play was presented. J. Murray. W . Moody. Len Ricrdan. and T. Kirantcllo were very active members in this group. Shorllv after the beginning of the term the Sod a I i t of the Holy Rosary was reorganized under the direction of Father Ignatius Cox. Attendance at the meetings lias been especiallv large. Lawrence A. Leavey and Joseph McCarthy, both ol Sophomore, were elected to the offices of prefect and secretary, respectively. Collegiate activities in the realm of the written word also acknowledge a great debt to the men of Sophomore. "The extensive news-gathering agencies" of the Ham have been successful to a large degree because of the efforts of the Sophomore members of the Ham staff. No less than eleven members of the Class of '31 have been activek engaged in "getting out the Ham." Howard Moran. " in" Gibson. Rob Whalen. Kugene Duffy and Joe Quintavalle were the busy young Sophomores who were constantly on the look-out for men biting dogs. Nat McCaffrey and James Keenan are members of the business staff, while John Murray. John Smith. John Rarnwell and Rill Mathias, have I wen avidly following events in the world of sport. 'Lite genial Mr. Murphy. S.J.. who recently took up the task of directing the destinies of the Ford ham Monthly assures us that his work has been made much lighter by the co-operation of Sophomore contributors. Four of these men. Robert Faber. James Alberse. F.d O'Sullivan and Lawrence Leavey. have already been made members of the staff. K. Ramey Donovan and Leslie P. Me Morrow have made several fine contributions in the form of short stories. The poems of Rob Faber and the learned and polished essays of Lawrence Leavey have been regular features. The Hughes Debating Society was reorganized this fall under Sophomore leadership. Griffith Scott was elected president and was ably assisted by Messrs. Rangert and Alberse. vice-president ami secretarv. respectively . lecture groups have been organized and many fine discourses have been given for the benefit of men's clubs and societies throughout greater New York and its environs. Many Sophomores have taken an enthusiastic interest in this work and have proved themselves to be capable and interesting speakers. We refer particularly to Howard Safarik. Richard Appcrt and George . 11iId. In tin Glee Club a large number of Sophomores have rpialified. We regret that there aresomanv names that we are tillable to enumerate them here. Rob Delanev and Finbarr Sullivan have told us. however, in glowing terms, of the success the club has met w ith in giv ing its concerts at the Carroll Club and the Colleges of Good Counsel and Alt. St. A incent. The Chib's annual concert given at Town Hall was a tremendous success. The Annual One-Act Play Contest was presented on tin evening of Februarv 26th. One of the plays presented was the work of Jim Albcrse.and Kddie Marlin played a prominent part in it. Rob Cox took part in another play and won the prize for the best acting. Also, at a recent meeting of the Chemists (dub. W illiam Kelchner and Peter (riot ta. both of 31, gave an interesting demonstration of nitrogen fixation. Rut. lest you conn to think that the Sophomore class has forgotten the latter part of the old adage "Mens sana in eorpore sano," let us recount some of their deeds of athletic prowess. Fordham's swimming team has just closed a successful season, a season whose success was due in a large measure to the efforts of the Sophomore 348mermen. Coach Mike McDonough expeels that his next year’s team will he compose I almost entirelx of the men of 34. Wc sincerely hope that inny Me Ala lion. Dave Hughes. Bobby Whalen ami their Sophomore mates will live up to the high expectations of their roach. In the Fordham Cvm from swimming to basket hall is hut a step upward (to the g m floor). Here we found main of our classmates working under the direction of Coach Ed helleher. Coach Kcllcher has great confidence in his Sophomore plavers among whom are Fleming. Pavlieovie, Danowski. Grimala and Williams. W illiams has been a regular since the start l the season and all the others have seen frequent action during tin court campaign. W bile on the g in lloor we saw "Jake" Weber putting several of the Soph runners through their paces. Johnny Mul ihill. we note.has been a regular on the mile-relay team since the campaign opened as has Dan (.owing. John Hogan, sensational Soph middle distance man has also starred in several of the larger meets of the indoor season. W ith the curtain drawn down on the basketball season, it is only natural that we should begin to wonder about the prospects of the coining baseball season. It is generally expected that the Sophomores Keenan and Vuer will form the nucleus of the pitching staff and that other Sophs will fill many positions in the infield and outfield. Spring also brings tennis and golf. Tennis fans are looking to E. Kainev Donovan, to uphold his national tennis title while a member of the Fordham team, lie will he aided and abetted b liill Harrington. Mike Bender and Gene Clarke. On the links, Barney Lanigan. for several years a state champion, should do great things. Other prominent Sophomore golfers are John Murray and Jack Holland. Last, hut not least, we will speak of the deeds of '34 on the gridiron. Major Cavanaugh's sterling team boasted many Sophomore names while the reserves consisted almost entirely of men of 34. Who w ill forget that brilliant pass from Pepper to Mel Jermott in the llol Crossgame?()r the marvelous line-smashing of Ed Danow -ski? It is true that we could goon like this forever, hut the line must be drawn somewhere. So main Sophomores look part in Eordham s grid campaign that naming them here is impossible, About twenty Sophs were members of the squad and among those who won their letters were Danowski. Pepper. McDermott. Pavlieovie. Ward. Bonitski. Howell. Fitzgerald. Dellsola ami I zdavinis. Thus closes our account. To us. Sophomore has been a glorious page in the book of our lives. It is with deep regret that we close it. but. mingled with that regret, is the happx after-sense of a task well done. I n relating the deeds of a class it is inev i table that I he names of individuals should be outstanding. These men represent their class in the various activities in which they engage and by their accomplishments cause it to become known to the other v ears. However it is not alone in such individualistic feats that the success of a college class should be measured, but rather in tin influence of the class as a unit on its lma Mater. I ndiv iduals w ill live in the memory of the school as isolated names, and in future ears their deeds will no longer be associated with a particular. Thus it i that the influence of the group on the destinv of the college is a truer form for judgment. The Sophomores have added to the spirit of Ford ham and have enscribed a leaf in the history ol old Rose Hill s traditions. Therefore as an element in the scheme of the real Fordham we hail them and urge them to carrv on as tlicv have so auspiciously started. D mi:i, J. Me At i.ifff.. Ik.. ‘34 TOC.DWAMFRESHMEN1-9-3-2. Class of 1935 OFFICKRS Thomas H. Y alsh .11 KI.KS C. I)ki BKI. Robert K. White . Frank J. Cl nninoham I resident I ice-President Secretary Treasurer Each year, in remit less high school ami college yearbooks, a multitude of Fresh -men compete with a multitude of their more experienced brethren in other classes in an endeavor to make their elass seem the most illustrious group of voting geniuses that has ever entered the ivied domains of the given institution. The weapon of competition in this perennial struggle is a peculiar type of scholastic composition known as the Class History. I he (.lass of 35 entered Fordhain the largest group of Freshmen in the I niver-sit s history, ceordiiig to an ancient and venerable eiistom. the Freshmen were introduced at Schola Brevis during the first week of the school year. i the same time, the new men were entertained b those arch-conspirators, the Sophomores, in what the Ham chose to call "the customary manner." The punishment, however, was not to last for long. The Class of 35 came into its own in short order. In accordance with another ancient and venerable custom, there is held each year a series of contests between the I’rosli and the Sophomores: a tug-of-war. a track meet and a swimming meet. One afternoon in September, there took place on the (tuadrangle a historic struggle. Sixteen straining student-, tugged mightih at a cable that seemed momentariK about to snap. Captain Jim Murphy, the unbiased PO-R.D-UAM 352 ) 111ftI • 9 ‘3'2_ referee. had few duties in this ea| aeit for llu new men dragged the aged Sophs all over the Quail, emerging victorious in the first of the year’s struggles. few weeks later the Sophomores attempted to regain a fraetion of their lost prestige in a track meet, hut again theirs was a sad and sorry lot. The Freshmen not only won the meet: hut to make the wound more fatal they literally ran away with every ev ent. The last event of the series, the sw imming meet, was In far the closest. The Sophs led the lirst-ycar men h a slender margin throughout the meet. It was only in the last event, the four-man relay, that the final outcome was decided, gain the Frosh eamc through. From that time forward the Freshmen were free from all Sophomore rule, and the Vigilance Committee passed into a peaceful oblivion. Thus was the year auspiciously begun. I'lie Freshmen have since extended their activities to every branch of curricular and extra-curricular endeavor. They have become a real part of the I uiversitx: they have taken the Ford ham spirit ami made it their own. Major Kelly, in charge of the R. 0. T. C. unit at Fordham. had spoken of the military organization at Sehola Brevis. s a result, there are at the present time 125 Freshmen enrolled in Ford ha in’s R. O. T. C. The rifle team, spon-ored by the R. (). T. C.. boasts three Freshman regulars: Joseph Daly. Y illiam Lambert, and Stephen Randolph. I'he football season got under way for the Freshmen on October 10. when tin Fordham Frosh met St. John’s Prep, of Danvers. Massachusetts. Both teams struggled mightily for four long periods, and at the end of tin fray, the score stood 7-0 for St. John’s, d'lie “little Rams of football."’ however, came through to a scintillating triumph on November 21. when Samuel Johnson Prep, of Milford. Connecticut, traveled to Rose 11 ill to meet the team of Fordham. 35. The “little Rams" took thr New F.nglanders all over the field to the tune of 37-0. It was in this contest that the Frosh athletes demonstrated what may be expected from them when next y ear they will help to fill the gaps left by those giants of the gridiron whom graduation wiil take from Fordham in June. Basketball, too. has had the attention of this year’s Freshmen. Two games have been played thus far. the first with Don Bosco Prep, of New Jersey, and the second with Horace Mann, of New York. The Ram yearlings were victorious in both contest?.. the scores being 26-16 and 31-21. In the Resident Students’ Tennis tournament, open to all classes, the palm was won by a Freshman. Norman Waterman, after he had defeated a fellow classman. Fred Magcnhcimer. in the finals. Flections for the Freshman class officers were held in the first months of the y ear, and these, too. were closely contested. Thomas F. Walsh became president of the class: Charles C. Deubel was elected vice-president: Robert K. White took the office of secretary; and Frank I. Cunningham became the c lass treasurer. This competent group of executives has managed the numerous activ ities of the class in a verv efficient and commendatory manner. Dramatics, too. has occupied the- attention of the Class of 35. W hen tryouts were called for the- varsity play, a.nicer of Freshmen made the attempt to secure parts. with gratifying results. The role of St’lxislian was played lev Stephen Corev. and the characters of the first and second officers were enac ted by Charles C. O’Reilly and (iharlcs ( !. I )euhc|. The Hughes Debating Society bason its P 32 roster the names of as many Freshmen as Sophomores. One intercollegiate Freshman debate has thus far been held. On the evening of December 15. the gentleinen from New York I niversitv traveled TOO. DU A Mil1-9-3-2. across the Bronx to debate tlie Fordham F'rosh. The debaters from N. Y. U. struggled nobly to convince the three impartial judges, hut the decision was unanimous for Fordham. The "little Hams of oratory" in this case were Malcolm C. Kohl-becker, Charles C. OKeilly and Herman J. Herbert. ith regard to journalism, the Freshmen have kept up the standards set by their predecessors. Nine Freshmen are now affiliated with the Ram. The news staff is using the abilities of George K. Appel, illiam H. MeGnrn. (diaries F. Lammert. John J. Horan. Francis J. McMahon, and John J. Donovan: the sports department is receiving the contributions of William S. Adams and Thomas A. Lenahan: and Bernard Hughes is connected with the business staff. The Fordham Monthly at the beginning of the year announced a Freshman competition, offering a prize of ten dollars to any Freshman who secured the publication of a poem, story or essay in the first issue of the magazine. Several Freshmen attempted the contest, and the publication of a story. "Departure." by Herman J. Herbert, was the result of the contest. It is hoped that the men of the Class of ’35 will take a great interest in this publication, keeping it in its position as one of the outstanding collegiate literary publications in the country. The Short Story Guild under the direction of Father Taffe was reorganized this vear. and many interesting and amusing stories have been written and beard by the members in meeting assembled. The officers of the Guild for the year are: Herman J. Herbert, president: Thomas K. Fgan. secretary: and Joseph T. Conroy, censor. The one event that will probably stand out from all others in this Freshman vear of the Class of ’35 was held on November 19. 1931. On the evening of that date, in the Knights of Columbus Hotel, there was held the first banquet in the history of the I niversitv ever given for the Freshmen by the Sophs. The banquet was held as a result of the w inning of all three class contests by the F'rosh. committee of Sophomores. headed In Fid ward Malloy. Sophomore class president, was in direct charge of the affair, and the splendid evening they provided for the underclassmen was a striking testimonial of the fact that all rivalry between the classes had ceased with the winning of the last contest by the F reshmen. The guests included Father Hogan. Father Deane, the entire Freshman faculty, the Sophomore class officers, and many of the student luminaries of tin college. After the dinner Mr. Malloy, as toastmaster, took charge of affairs. The newly-elected Freshman officers were introduced to the guests who received them warmly . Fach of the officers delivered a short but interesting address. The guests then listened to musical entertainment offered by Lester Borden and Franklin A. Davie. Father Deane spoke next and was well received. Father Hogan, as the final speaker of the evening, brought to the attention of the guests the ideals and principles upon which the University was founded, and the duties of the Class of '35 in this regard. W ith this the banquet ended. It is the hope of the Class of ‘35 that the highly successful affair will become an annual one. and that the spirit it engendered will be kept up through the years that the class will enjoy at Fordham. — HKRMAN J.

The great apostolic work of the College Council on Catholic Action, directed by the sodality as its central headquarters, was spread far and wide through the medium of the radio. Weekly broadcasts over Station WLW L of the Paulist League, under the supervision of Bernard O'Connell, gained greater glory for Catholic leadership and the sodality. In the sodality itself, a new procedure was adopted at the weekly meetings. On each occasion a member would analyze the previous Sunday s Oospcl, and enunciate the principles found therein. The work of charity undertaken by the sociality, in which the members trained youngsters in the principles of active faith, was continued with great success. At various times, speakers went forth to Newman Clubs throughout the city, carrying with them many of the inspiring and practical ideas advanced again and again by the Reverend Moderator. W hen the season demanded, the members aided the poor by collecting food and clothing from the students. It is the sincere belief of all who know the sodality that it will long continue as it has begun, earning respect for religion and honor for the college. maroon 361I.rfi iii rijiltl: Tirrnev. l urry.

This year an unprecedented student enrollment swelled the ranks of the members remaining from last year and with this enlarged membership the scope of the sodality's work was greatlx increased. From time to time collections were taken up for the home and foreign missions.

The sodalitx is in receipt of nianx stirring letters from mis.sioners who have benefited bx the generositx of tin men from the first and second year classes. The week I meetings were well attended and snrelx a source of joy to Mary, the Oueen Mother, and her Son.

Throughout the past scholastic year, the society has been chiefly engaged in two lines of activity. The lirst of these is the collection of hooks to be read and studied l» the students in far-off mission schools. The tremendous importance of these volumes in those modest and often humble institutions of learning, cannot be overemphasized. The other held of endeavor, which the Harvester Cluh has sedulouslv developed, is the spreading of interest in the missions among the children of our elementary and high schools. The scope of this work has been so increased during this year that the number of pupils who have had an opportunity to heed the urgent call of the missions, as voiced by the members of the society, has advanced to the enormous proportion of seven thousand.

With this auspicious start the Council looks forward to the remainder of an ambitious and in every way intercollegiate schedule. In a radio broadcast over Station WLWL on February 6. Peter J. Hughes. '32. and Bernard J. O'Connell. ‘32. defended the negative of the Third Party question against the Manhattan dehaters. In this contest no derision was rendered, inasmuch as it was a radio debate. Other debates included engagements with Creighton University of Omaha. Nebraska. John Carroll at Cleveland. Canisius at buffalo. Syracuse at Syracuse and Boston College at Boston. Lectures and debates before Church organization audiences in and about New York City have become a weekly function of the Council. I licse pro and eon discussions on current topics are interesting and informative to the Catholic Laity. The work of Crowley. Tracey and Conian as Chairmen of the Lecture. Publicity and Judges Committees respectively has been commendable. The Council will suffer severely this year through graduation, when it will lose nearly all the speakers on the Varsity teams, but tradition assures us that the vacated positions will he filled. We. the Seniors, extend to those who will carry on the Council of Debate traditions our best wishes lor greater and continued success. MAROON 367Ill 1-9-3-2. . • In rialit: llln’r r. liangrrt. Sort!

The efforts of the men who wielded the goose-quill in editorial, verse ami prose-fiction in 1931-32 can. with no fear of odious comparison, be set beside the achievements of those who founded the Monthly upon the grassy ridge of Rose Hill and beside the accomplishments of those men who continued to express through the swift years the ideals and sentiments which animated those spirited pioneers of 1882. ml they of the 1931-32 staff held staunchly to that standard, that view- POPDAAM 3721 -9-3-2. point, which has never undergone transformation to the extent ol sacrificing what was worthwhile ami meritorious in suhstance on the altar of motlcrnism. I’lic Monihlv through the pens of these men. never succumbed to the tidal wave of psemlo-sophistieation ami psemlo-maturism that has in the past decade engulfed other college pnhlieations of similar status. The Senior members of the staff formed, as was befitting. the nucleus ol the Monthly system. and the success of their efforts lent apprecialdy to the influence of the Monthly in its varied spheres of activity. Richard J. Burke, who held the position of Editor-in-Chief during 1930-31. succeeded himself in 1931-32, handling, with equal facility, prose and verse, while at the same time presenting timely editorials on matters of import to the college. Ilis poetic offerings were remarkable for their grace, seductive rhythm and vividness of color. Rut it is for his light essays that he will he best remembered. These brimmed overfull with sly laughter and cunning innuendo while purporting to treat of matters of current importance. But these can be appreciated best only l those who intimatelv knew him as a replica of Confucius molded in Celtic clay. Maurice A. Connell. Jose ph ( ioughlin. John . Lvneh. and Raymond I. Spat , confined their endeavors to the realm of prose composition. Maurice V. Connell, whose literary efforts are a byword with the readers of the Monthly and the Ram alike, proffered for the gratification of the college main a short story and light ess ax (hat sparkled with the crisp, dry humor that is the keynote of his personality. Likew ise. Joseph Coughlin, a veteran of four years on the staff, advocated the short storv and allegory, and the soft lightness of his touch gained as much fame for him in this line as he has gained in his role of playwright. John . Lynch, though he chose a variety of subjects, delighted to exercise his talents in the imaginative field, and the products of his work beguiled those who pored over the pages of the Monthly away from reality and into the regions of nature and the verdant pastures of allegory. Raymond J. Spatz administered the office of reviewer of current hooks ami his timely excursions into volumes fresh from the press served as a guide to those who sought one for the keenly analytical method by which he discovered and separated the threads of thought that were woven into those volumes served to inspire an individual perusal bv those who followed his department. The financial condition of the Monthly prospered under the able guidance of George M. Mulligan whose never-tiring service in this capacity removed completely the usual hindrances which accrue to such a publication. To the Art Editor. Edward II. Koch. 33, was the Monthly obligated for the quiet dignity and serenity of the exterior appearance of the magazine and for the artistic improvement that his masterful frontispieces afforded the general tone of each succeeding issue. I’lie members of the stall' are doubly indebted to the Monthly for the many friendships that they formed beneath its standard and for the help and inspiration that they drew from the kindly and pleasantly bestowed directions of the Moderator. These all inestimably aided them in the common end toward which they tended, and which beyond doubt will have a lasting and beneficent effect upon their efforts hereafter. As a haven for those who yearn to express their thoughts as best they might no better could he found than within the Monthly's grey-walled sanctum. II M AftOON 3731-9-3-2- The Ram Robert . Nebot.

The Ham The R M. official weekly publication of the students of Fordham. this year continued to present to the student body news of campus activities, in which important function the Senior members of the staff played no small part. Fifteen members of the Class of '32. who for the past three or four years have formed the nucleus of that organization, continued in their various capacities on the staff of the RAM. Robert A. Nebol. associated with the staff since his entrance as a Freshman, was this year chosen Editor-in-Chief. lie has done his work well: his direction has been excellent: his writings timely, clear and convincing. The praise he has won is well-merited. Joseph G. Kelly and Robert L. Ponsiglione, also served their fourth year, filling the posts of Business Manager and Managing Editor, respectively. Iloth positions are such that the holders must labor mightily, but their efforts are seldom fully appreciated and rewarded. Such recognition as this is small recompense. John McCauley Collins, for two years a member of the Circulation Stall of the paper, was picked to manage that important division, while Daniel E. McCarthy was transferred from a position on the Rusiness Staff to that of Reference Manager. This year saw a return of the News Roard in an effort to simplify and eo-ordinatc that portion of publication having to do with the assembling and writing of news. Three Seniors were elevated from positions on the News Staff to membership on this Board. The men so honored were Joseph I'. Coughlin, a stalf member since September of 1928, John B. Coman and John Leary, Jr., associated with the News Staff since their Sophomore year. The readers of the R AM continued to be entertainer! this year by Maurice A. Connell » lio entered bis second year as author of the popular column. )ther 1 Maces and Other Things." reporting the doings on campuses the country over. Mr. Connell also continued to act as Exchange Editor, ably assisted by Francis . McKenna, a veteran member of the staff. Mr. Connell's column has gained some little fame beyond the gates of Kordham as well. Henry F. While, who last year was appointed Alumni Editor, continued to keep Fordham men of the present in touch with the activities and achievements of former Fordham students. The men who were responsible for the year's news scoops were Raul A. Leprohon. James J. Meany, Jr.. George T. McNamara, and Edward J. Tirdel, all members of the News Staff. They are to be congratulated for their thoroughness and skillful writing. Thus the members of the Class of 32 cease to participate actively in the gathering and dissemination of Fordham news. If the past he any criterion of the future, no doubt many of those who served their apprenticeship as undergraduate journalists, will one day join their former associates as members of the fourth estate. 1 hey have, in their last and greatest year.directed and guided the R M and its editorial policies through its latest and most successful year. Their only reward is the appreciation and approbation of their classmates. II maroon 375_ 1 • 9 ‘3'2. Rrnr: l.rjl to right) Collins. II.. Mrtinv. I.amhis. Clcvrr.

The result of the training acquired by membership is evidenced in the great number of stories by members of the Quill Cluh appearing in the Monthly, and in the number of former members whose articles appear in the type of magazine popular with educated men. At each meeting, two of the members read original short stories which are criticized constructively by the entire club, thus making the writer profit from the criticism of his particular style as well as from the general criticism.

The past year was replete with thrills and pleasures. Thrills given to the mail) audiences l the sweet, melodious tones of the well-trained chorus, and pleasure derived from the applause of our friends. The Carroll Club of New orb was the opening scene of the vear‘s many concerts. In quick succession ap| carances were made at Good Counsel College. Mount St. Vincent College, Georgian Court College, the College of New Rochelle and the College of St. Elizabeth. The success of the club in these concerts was due to the MAROON 379able direction of our admired Conductor. who was the recipient of splendid support from the entire chili. Incidental successes soon followed from appearances made at W liite Plains and Yonkers. The climax of the season was the annual concert given at Town Hall. Pile Chairman of the nnual Concert was Mr. hustacc J. Parley, who was ably assisted bv the entire Board of Directors. Mr. Farley's labors were greatly appreciated bv the audience which crowded the hall. No little credit was due to Norman Leboeuf. the talented accompanist, who labored so magnificently lor three years in the best interest of the organization. Following the Town Hall Concert, the club traveled to Boston where they were the guests of F.mmanucl College. Phis concert ranks as one of the most enjoyable of the year, since it was the club's first appearance in New Kngland. s the year drew to a close, plans were made for the annual dinner. James Halloran was chosen as Chairman of the Committee of rrangements. He was ablv assisted In James Minnick and Charles G. Nagel.

Rut there were a few who held together, in spite of that, and finally built up the club into a stable organization, whose prestige, at present, equals that of any on the campus. The name of Kordham has always been popular in the State of the Cabots and Lodges, but since the activities of the club have begun, it has become not only better known, but even famous. The large number of new students from that region attest to this fact. As a result, the club grows larger each year. Many of its members have taken an active part in the leading college activities and several Ray Staters were to be found occupying important positions in extra curricular organiza t ions. We cannot fail to mention the friendly and helpful advice that our Moderator has given us since our inception. The success that has been attained b the club, has been achieved greatly through his guidance. W e are certain that through his efforts, and through the, efforts of the underclassmen, the good record of this little club will continue to reflect credit on the name of Kordham.

Jim Murphy was the best hack on the field, but no one could pierce the Violet's valiant line in the vital zone that day. Likewise, Ford ham’s forwards, greatly out-weighed in every position, dug their cleats deep in the dirt, challenged anyone to pass them. If. by chance, a twisting back did elude their clutches, the firm, sure hands of a center, who was seemingly everywhere, pulled them down. Johnny Del [sola was superb that day. When yardage counted, lie refused to budge even when he no longer had the strength to rise up again. The honors of the day were shared b the, rival linesmen, so let us collectively heap the praise that is their due on the iolct and the Maroon lines from end to end, and on the backs as well, especially Temple, Grossman. "Murph” and Ld Danowski. the latter being inevitably slated for ’’ All honors in the future. The result, although disappointing to the rabid fans of both institutions, was the only just outcome. It would have been a shallow victory had Lady Luck smiled on either of the elans and given a chance score. Those who fou"ht so nobly to achieve the impossible— a conquest for their school, and accomplished the improbable perfect defense, have claim to greater glory than it is our lot to bestow on them.

Coach Captain Manager TpORDH MI teams, in whatever sport they may engage, must live up to tin high A ideal of Fordham tradition. This noble tradition does not demand constant victory, hut it does require true sportsmanship and the will to win. (hi the diamond. Fordham has turned out so many illustrious figures and such ronsistcntlv successful nines, that their adherents, undergraduates and alumni, have come toe pecl not only sportsmanship and fighting spirit hut also victor itself. Thus it may he said that, in a certain sense, our haschall teams labor under a handicap, since only defeat marks them as out of the ordinary run. Each team, then must prove its worth. The squad of '31 approached the season with the usual determination and eagerness to prove themselves worthy of representing their lma Mater on the diamond. Graduation had lell wide gaps in important positions and Jack Coffey had many worrisome moments trying to replace his trusted veterans. The first call for candidates was answered by aspirants for battery positions, the conditioning of this department commencing about two weeks previous to that of the rest of the team. Neil Andrews. Ilormidas Aube and "Pat " Foley, together with the promising southpaw. Jim Comerford. formed the nucleus of the hurling staff. Vndrews consistently John F. Coffey Adam Elcewicz Anthony J. Pisani MAftOONI timed in practically perfect games, repeatedly limiting his opponents to one or two safeties. Ilis brilliant work somewhat overshadowed the effectiveness of his fellow tnssers. but each of them contributed their share of dramatic moments and yeoman labor throughout the season. Art l.oughran filled the important post of relief pitcher w it h creditable success. The receiving end of the battery was built around Jerry liadicc and was bolstered P • In Captain FJcewicz. and f,eo Rosenthal. Recause of his all-around ability. Klrewiez was shifted to third to help solve an intricate infield problem. The departure of Jack I.a Rome, last year's captain, had left a surprisingly large gap in the infield. We had become so accustomed to Jack's stellar play at short, that, with the advent of a new season, we almost expected to see his smiling countenance beneath a Fordham cap. Coach Jack Coffey experimented with main combinations around short and third, before In’ decided to use Klccwicz, Covle and Sheerin alter-natelx at these two positions. Joe Zapustas capably filled the initial sack post and his ability with the stick added much to the team's offensive. Jackie Fisher finally won the keystone position. "Rart” McDoncll in left. "Tip" Tobin in center and Damn Uvino in right field rounded out the nine that finalh look the field in defense of Fordham's glory in baseball circles. Hthough the prime element of efficient team work was at fir-t absent from this aggregation, as was naturalK expected. I'ordhamitcs had rea-on to be proud of their diamond representatives before the end of the season. s has been the custom for some years, the Rams opened with a trip through Pennsylvania and New Jersey, meeting Princeton. Yillanova. Temple and Navy. Despite the difficulty attendant upon tiresome travel and play upon strange fields, the Maroons achieved laudable success upon their excursion, returning home with two games won and two games -FORD-MAM1-9-3-2. lost. l« IV a(in«£ Temple ami Princeton. The victories far outshone the defeats. Ilis win over Temple was ail auspicious portent o! the future greatness of Neil Andrews, a lone hingle being the harvest of the Owl hat-men. Nav y t n»k advantage of the inexperience of the Pordham team to emerge victorious in the Ham's next contest. Their confidence shaken by this last defeat, the efforts of uhc. Comcrford and Loughran were insufTicient to stem the tide of illanova's heavy hitters, and the Varsity lost its second game. Andrews restored Pordham to the winning column hy registering a shutout v ietorv in the Princeton game. After defeating Poston College, the team endeavored to continue its winning streak, hut Seton Hall snatched a hard earned victory after a thirteen-inning struggle. A win and a defeat was the result of the meeting with two Metropolitan rivals. Columbia succeeded in overcoming the Hams, and Manhattan ho wed before the slants of Andrews. The earlv season defeat hy Yillanova was avenged upon the home field, with victories over Vale and Duke quickly following. In the wake of these four successive wins, the squad suffered a natural letdown and lost to Holy Cross and N. A . I . However. N. Y. I . was vanquished in a return engagement, and the visitors from the Orient. Hosei I niversity. were added to the list of Pordham victims. It is appropriate that a few words he inserted here in appreciation of the leader of so many successful Pordham nines. In hasehall. perhaps more than in anv other sport, it is the achievements of the players that receive the plaudits of the oidookers. while the co-ordinating power behind the team as a unit is overlooked. The careful drilling in fundamentals, the patient and ceaseless instruction in particular phases of the game, the welding of a unit from a group of personalities, are passed over in the hectic triumph of victory. Pordham is extremely fortunate in having Jack Coffev. "10, ;is coach of hasehall.

Despite the burdensome position of (Graduate Manager. Jack has found time each year to tutor I'ord-ham's future stars in the lore of the diamond.

Mverv college, institution. 01 organization has its outstanding figures men who have become so associated with their endeavors as to In inseparable from their affiliations in tin minds ol all who know them. This is especially true of college sports. The thought of every well know n football team is inalienably attached to tin name of its coach. Some universities are synonymous with tin personalities of those who have achieved fame in the fields of science or art. Jack Coffey has attained this position in tin affairs of his Alma Mater. The association of ideas is complete and perfect: the mere mention of the one inevitably calls to mind tin other. s others strive for eminence in the various branches of learning and endeavor to outstrip each other on the at tainment of the lore of the aneieuts or the discoveries in the sciences, so Jack has chosen his own sphere and stands among the leaders upon it.

Recognizing this fundamental truth, the graduate manager has placed himself in a position where he will have a more direct and personal influence on this basic element than is obtained in the classroom.

To date, this game had alwavs been considered a "breather for the team hut this vear 1MAROON 413 ('.ouch Cti tlain Manageril proved an unfortunate stumbling-block. The next game was played at Rutgers I Diversity, in the new athletic building which was ojM-ned the first time for the Fordhani game. This was another one of those unfortunate games where the losers were ahead at half time and then lost the game to their op|H nents by a slight margin. )ne of the most interesting and exciting games of the vear occurred when Temple I niversitv came up from Philadelphia to takeover the Rams. Rut strange to say. the Rams were not "taken over" as even newspaper in town had prophesied. ICven though they were one of the best teams in the east, the Owls were beaten quite handily by the rejuvenated Ram team. Then came the City College game. The Hams did not show much promise. Nat Holman's team showed that for one year, at least, it had a team which could heat Fordhani. The arrival of the Penn State Basketball Team at the Fordhani Gym marked a decided change in the Rams. In the first overtime played in the Fordhani Gy mnasium in two ears, the Fordhani Basketball team managed to eke out a 38-37 triumph over IVnn State. The teams went into the extra period deadlocked 31 to 34. Hayes. Parker and illiams stood out prominently in delivering the final shots which gave the game to Fordhani. During the second half, the lead changed hands no less than fixe times. In the first half a flurry of thirteen points erased Fordhani s 15 to c) adv anlage and the session ended w ith Penn Stale holding a 22-1 7 lead. I)an W illiams was the high scorer of the game with thirteen markers. The New York I niversitv game surpassed even the Penn Stale game in its importance and excitement. )ne of the local papers, on giv ing a report of thegame.said that the seismograph in the Fordhani I niversitv scientific laboratories jiggled era ilv and that the needle recon led a disturbance of major proportions somewhere north of Fordhani Road. It was no earthquake, though, mcrclv the thunderous roar sent up bv 1.500 hoarse throats in acclaim of a long, towering shot hv Damn W illiams wInch gave the Maroon team a 27-20 victory over New ork I niversitv in the last ten seconds of their game in the Fordhani Cvmnasiuui. This was the varsity's fir-t victory over a major local rival in the season. The game was one of those exciting one that keep the spectators on the edges of their chairs from the o| ening whistle to the closing whistle. It would be difficult to mention any individual star, because work of the whole team was machine-like, and all the players performed intricate plavs and pivots with ohv ions co-ordination. The N. 't . I . team entered the game with a grim determination to avenge last years defeat by the M a roon. and therivalrv which has existed between these two Bronx institutions over a period of years was noticeably present. s it happened, the score, and the game in general, were identical with that of the prev ious vear. lib1 -9-3-2. uJfSSfc k. i I M Fordham's penchant for pulling a l»ask« l I»all game out of the tire in the last tliirt seconds of play proved disastrous for Manhattan College, when a tenacious Ham team shaded the Jaspers in the Fordham Gym. Ii was Jerrv Hadice who inserted the all-important points that sent tin Green and White hack to Kiverdale bewailing the Hand of Fate that favored the Maroon again. Trailing 26-30. and with Manhattan resorting to a well-planned freezing game that seemed formidable enough to hold the Hams at bay for the final three minutes, a Manhattan pass went astray and gave Ford ham the chance to start things rolling in their fax or. Throughout the earlx stages of the game the Maroon weakness seemed to he in counting free t? r v- tosses gained by the fouls of their opponents, hut. as the game drew to a close, it was Mulligan's foul shots which made the game safe for kordham. The Hams played their last game of the season against ale at New Haven. There is not much that can be said about this contest. ale won. 31 22. This as one of the upsets of the season. Heretofore, it has never been remotely considered by a Ford-ham man that his basketball team should suffer a defeat at the hands of a Yale squad. There is always the first time, and the night of March 1th. 1932. happened to be that night. This is the first time in the history of athletic relationship with Yale University that a Yale team has ever beaten a I’ordham Basketball Team. Bringing the season to a close, we look back over the games lost and won. and remark that the record of the season is not so bad. bile it is not as good as those of former years, yet the team won at least fifty jx-r cent of its games, and all its losses were to major teams. Moreover, the teams of previous years have set up a record for the contemporary teams to shoot at. that is well nigh impossible toequal. But we have infinite faith in the coaching abilities of Coach Fdward V. kelleher and have hope that the future will bring him as fine a group of athletes as he had this year. Captain Parker. Johnny Hayes. George Mulligan and John Conrov will doff their maroon and white uniforms this year ami graduate. They played many a splendid game and won mam a contest. I lie team will feel their loss. They have given performances which next vear s team will find hard to equal. Surely it is fitting to devote here a few lines to the remarkable labors of the man who has done so much for I’ordham basketball, a f words Ins efforts to place Fordham first among collegiate basketball teams, and a few sentences in appreciation of his woith. his sportsmanship and his zeal. I 'd kelleher came to Fordham in 1922. Fordham wain the midst of one of the most distressimr seasons that the Maroon had ever seen in the course of many years in basketball. n unprecedented string „f josseg had disheartened the Ham. Basketball was on the point of becoming a dead sport at Fordham. |„ a brief period. f, -I . 417after a strenuous eomse of training, the eourtmen look tlx field again, ami. in a brilliant reversal of form, swept in a triumphant progress to the end of a bewildering season. It was the first of the now famous Kelleher rev ivals. The genius who turned that unhappN tide of defeat lias been the mainstay of Kordham teams ever since. During the term of his military earecr he served with the same devotion and attention to detail that has characterized his service at Fordham. fter the war. following llu- tendencies of his student days, he entered the coaching field, and later, as basketball coach at St. John's College. Brooklyn, won some renown as a court technician. 11 is success was a stead and undeviating progress to reputation and authoritv as an cvponenl of basketball tactics. But the apex of his career was reached at Fordham. ith the arrival of Kelleher to train and coach the Bam courtiers, basketball at Fordham reached new heights. Developing a new style to fit the men he found, and creating an attack which swept before it the defenses of many hitherto impregnable scholastic rivals. Kelleher and Fordham began winning careers. Kelleher was. and is. a strong exponent of the two team theory of play. I pon the Fordham court he has demonstrated, time and again, the use and efficiency of just this s stem of play . strong reserve force, throw u on the court at the right moment has won more than one game for Fordham. and will, we Iio|m;, win many more. Vnolher innovation in the Fordham ranks was that of standing guard. To provide a means for defeating slashing enemy attacks and a center about which to rally the Maroon forces for a counter attack, that was Kelleher's reason for the new position. The resulting conquests of the invigorated Banisters proved its efficacy. Fdvvard Kelleher is not just a coach of basketball. In a way all bis own. ibis rare character lias attached hi fortune and life to the fortune and life of Fordham. Her acceptance of hisworth as a leader and a friend lias seen the union grow and llouriMi. The men hi our cl as whom be lias coached have liked him. c others have admired him. Now we seek to honor him in the class yearbook, lie deserves every word of praise we bestow on him.

The team also engages in shoulder to shoulder competitions with nearby colleges and neighboring athletic clubs. National Guard Units, and Regular Army regimental rifle teams. Much of the progress of the Rifle Team is due to the new ami larger rifle range that has been provided for the team. It is one of the finest in the East, and one of which Fordham can well he proud.

I util the Frosh encountered James Monroe they had ranked among the select group of the undefeated. Imt tlii- night their playing did not seem to "dirk." Exasperating basket-hangers rolled two or three times around the rim, and then fell outside the netted hoop. Nor was the passing up to standard. Consequently, the desperate Freshmen went down before the lighting attack of their opponents. The second loss was to the (iit iollege Jay vees. In this game the men of thirty -five received many pointers which assisted greatly in correcting the faults existent in the team and individual play. Ihis particular contest went into an overtime period and that, in itself, is tcstimoiiv to the intensity of the pla iug that look place between these two great fives.

The young Ranis handed together in a concentrated attack which netted seven runs.

Although the margin was 'light, yet the latent power of tin cluh was evidenced in their hitting. Rluinctte. the winning pitcher, complemented his hurling with a home run. The Frosli continued their season with a win over the Princeton Freshman nine. Starting at full speed the yearlings gathered four runs in tin opening frame before the were retired. The catcher of the stpiad. Sager, contributed a homer, while Rhimettc was again successful in turning hack theeneim stickinen. The strong N. 't . I . Frosli team was the first to halt the iclor march of Ford-ham's youngsters.

Freshman Tennis I N 1931. for I Ik first linn in Fordham's historv . tin Freshman class was represented liv a tennis team, an out (it wliieli most certainlv could 1»« ranked among the top-noteliers in their class. The undefeated season that the team enjoyed augurs well for the future of tennis at Ford ha in. hen anv team has an umlefeated season it might well feel proud of itself, hut when that team eoinpiles such a record in tin first year of its existence, it has accomplished a feat seldom equalled. Led h I.. Kamo Donovan the carting tennis team met and defeated the hcst teams of its class in the vicinitv of New York. It was unfortunate that the scheduled match with De itt Clinton, the public school title holder, was rained out. for the w inner of this contest might well have had umli-puted claim to the junior championship of New «irk State.

Mike Bender, next to Donovan, had the best record. It was not until the verv last match that lie failed to win.

I-FOJ2.D-UAM || -I2K 11 i•3-2. Freshman Track rT 11K fir i of December found many Freshmen starting their career as members of Fordham’s track squad. This year, however, the veteran trainer. Jake W eber, did not shake his head in a gloomy fashion when asked about these yearling track-sters. Ford ham has seldom seen youngsters possessing such speed as Callico. Deuhel. McDonald and McNamara. Few can forget the main sensational performances which Jim Callico has staged at Madison Square Carden or DeubeFs fast quarter miles. Before the season was over the Freshman representation was greatly improved, and main Fine members such as Larkin, Arena. Shannon and "Bed" Walsh were uncovered. I nder the expert guidance of Jake and the skillful management of Mike W alsli. a great year was experienced by the yearling runners. This fact has led many to believe that Fordham shall find in this group of yearlings a championship relay. I he specters of the once great track combinations of Fordham have long hovered about the confines of the Gym. overshadowed by the mediocrity of later teams. In the ability and spirit displayed by this Freshman group lies the promise of Ford-ham's return to her former heights in track and field. Lennon and Carey assumed managerial roles to aid Mike W alsh in the handling of the squad and they have ably-aided Jake We her in whipping into shape a first-class track combination.

I pon meeting the man who had pierced through the esoteric machinations of tin- Athletic Association and. though but an undergraduate, had secured two tickets at mid-field in the up|»cr stand for the Fordham-V Y. U. game, we were abashed. Vs we sat before him we recalled the deeds In had since performed. After his graduation he went into Wall Street and obtained an interview with J. I’. Morgan. After spending forty-five minutes with him. lie emerged with the Morgan fortune 1361 9 3 2_ and a mortgage on the Crown of Great Britain. The next step in his career was accomplished when he met lr. Rockefeller, accepted a dime from him, and engaged him in conversation. After half an hour this distinguished alumnus held a controlling interest in the Standard Oil Company. "The college student of the present." he said in response to our question."floes not realize the possibilities of his student life. I noticed in the paper last month that not one student had been able to secure a ticket to the last game against N. V. U. Their education. I might point out. is a failure. "When I was in college, conditions, of course, were different. 'I'lie view that football was for the students was still in vogue. One could secure tickets for the. game, but not in the upper stand. Inspired by the address of the Dean to the Freshmen I resolved on a set purpose—to secure tickets in the upper stand for the N. V. U. game—and I subordinated all the phases of college life to this purpose. Of course I could have achieved my purpose through an election to an Athletic Association office, but I chose the harder course—the course of a man. "So well did I train mvself that in Freshman I managed to secure a towel after gymnasium classes. Is that fellow who sells them still there? Iii Sophomore, I secured an excuse from the Retreat from the Dean. In Junior I completed the course without one condition, and the fee for Physics was remitted without deduction. But these were niercl steps—I was yet to achieve the purpose on which I hail resolved. In Senior I secured copies of " italism and Scholasticism" and "'I'lie Freedom of Science” from the librarian the first time I asked for them. Then came the sale of tickets for the N. V. U. game—and the triumph of triumphs. W ith those two tickets that great purj»ose for which I had worked all those years had been attained. Life w as complete." He sat there and. as his eyes burned w ith the light of retrospection, his lips parted in a slow smile. For some time no word came from him. W e thought it blasphemous to intrude on his dreams, but the thought of our mission gave us strength. "How." wc asked in a low but tremulous voice, "did you do it?" As we spoke lie turned to ns as one who breaks from Nirvana. He parted bis lips and bis eyes still burned with a strange fire. But, as be started to speak, the chimes sounded out the hour. A look of surprise flitted across his features. "So soon?" lie murmured and arose to his feet to indicate that the interview' was at an end. "But how did you do it?" we implored in desperation. "Have you ever read Faust'." he asked. And then he smiled. "I must leave you now." lie said, as lie took our hand. "I must return to Hell." A STAFF MEMBER WRITES HIS BELOVED DARLING: Darling: There was no need for you to he so sarcastic in your last letter. I know that I promised to write to ou every week, hut you should re me m her that I have a lot of tilings to do. I di l go to that dance you mentioned hut the only reason I went was because I was assigned to cover it for the Ham. Also. I was down to sec "The Cat and The Fiddle." hut that was because I had to review it for the Monthly. FOC.D-UAM mII 1-9-3-2. 'Flic girl I was with each time was the (laughter of a man whose advertising wc arc Irving to get. It was purely business, and an impersonal affair. Of course I had to he nice to her. hut all the time I was thinking how nice it would have been to have had you with me instead, lint as your Dad can tell you . . . business is business, lint who told you about those things? Just to show you how busy I am. I have spent all my time for the last week working on the I vkoon. You see. every fellow in the elass has to have a writeup under his picture, and someone must do that writeup. The editor asks a person’s friend to write him up. but the lad seldom does it and. when lie does, the thing is either too libelous to print or so eulogistic that it looks suspicious. So the fellows on the staft have to do the darn things. You can see what this means. The editor gi e you a list ol about twenty names at three o’clock and tells you they have to be done by eight. ou know some of tinmen well, others just slightly and the rest you never heard of. ou have to give them all a break. Thus, if you don’t know anything about a lad. you say that he has a winning smile or a keen sense of humor coupled with a Hashing wit. You would think the hoys in the class just laughed their way through school. If the subject was a substitute on one of the teams you write that his name carved in deathless letters in the annals of athletics at l ordham. Should lie be a star the same words hold, but vou make it "famous name" and "glorious annals." No matter what they did on the field, they are all alike in the book. The lads think nothing at all of writing of a fellow whom nobody has known, that he has endeared himself to the hearts of all his fellows or. that it would take the resources of a Maeaulo to describe his manifold ami lovable qualities. Then, w hen vou have onlv fifty more words to go. you begin to bid a fond farewell to him. while vou go through the Thesaurus for superlalives. The most heartbreaking thing to have to do is to be forced to write the obituary P “ of a classmate who has been poison to vou...........I just linished one of them, and it has left its mark on my soul. I had to give him two hundred and forty words of praise and laudation. Before it was finished I had smashed two typewriters. Into many of the articles I poured all my literary talent, especially those on my particular pals. They were. I felt, gems of accurate description, and were correct portrayals of the men as I knew them. hen I showed the result to the victims they jumped on me for leaving out something or for putting in something they wanted left out. I tell you it’s all very discouraging. Now. in my writeup, vou will be surprised, perhaps, to read that I am called a ‘‘brilliant conversationalist." I suppose you will have to make some witty remark about that. On the other hand the eulogy also say s that I am a fervent romanticist. Now please do not misconstrue that. But. like all women, you will put two and two together, and have the answer before you add them up. t any rate it does not mean that I have been going around with other women. I am always true to you alone. As ever. It st Mb. I . S. That girl had m ring because my roommate took mine, instead of his own, by mistake. He gave it to her thinking that it was his..But who told vou about that ring? 110Class Directory • Ahkott. John J . 2528 99th Street. Coroiu, L. I.. N. ■ Vi k ino. Joseph F.. 2288 |oe lii t Avenue.
