For golf, FRED NUESCH takes the
Cake in school. Not only is he a good
player, beating his opponents, but he also
is a good sport, making them almost glad
they lost. lixcelling in interscholastic
sports here. he also, besides golf, played
football and helped the team to a success-
ful season. lireddy is a friend to all and
at man with a fine future.
HENRY RIDDLF. "The little boy with
the big heart." Although small in size,
he was one of the outstanding basketeers
in the city. He is the type of boy you
would like to have for a brother, and is
ready to help anyone at anytime. No
matter what undertaking he may tackle
after graduation Henry will give his best
and that will be far more than enough.
EARL O'HARA and his james Motor-
cycle are inseparable couple. According
to him, it's the fastest thing on two wheels.
Although he has not taken to many extra-
curricular activities, he has aided the gen-
eral appearance of the school. The calm,
collected Irishman has managed to become
friends with everyone and that includes the
faculty. All that can be said for O'Hara's
future is that empires are made of men
JOE RONZA. If you've ever been to
one of the Catholic Hi Glec Club Concerts,
you'll probably be wondering whose beau-
tiful tenor voice you heard over all the
rest. It was joe Ronza's. He has strictly
got talent for the fine art of singing. He
has tried to help himself by taking music
and by being in the band, while Fr. Gran-
nis led it. With all his talent, you'd never
guess it by the way he acts. He is the
average, good-mannered C. H. S. student
and, being qualified as such, is a swell
LEO PIIZROTTI has acquired the name
of "Carpet liaggern. Beats me how he gilt
it, but it's rumored that he's been around
C. H. S. so long, people think he came
there just after the Civil Wfar with the
other "Carpet Baggersu. No ioking, Leo
has only spent the required time in school
and has done a good job at niany things
while here. He was captain of the foot-
ball team in 1949, played basketball, base-
ball and football for four years and has
kept a decent standard of grades. His
laugh, which reminds one of the death
scream of a man falling off a cliff, has
brought him city-wide fame. It's a cinch,
if he remains on the same trail, he'll do
Next on the list for public criticism is
BOB STOTT. A small fellow, but with a
big heart. He's tried hard to make the
boxing team for the last three years, but
every time was eked out by a close decision.
As most good C. H. S. students, he has his
faults with his virtues, but they are deh-
nitely few and far between. The red-
headed slugger keeps up a good average at
class and is one of the most popular boys
in the senior class.
The ace of Fr. Morris's Senior English
Class is none other than TOM TOMA.
Along with many contributions to the let-
ters of the Magnel, he has put himself in
the limelight of the class by writing some
awfully nice bits of poetry. This doesn't
necessarily foretell anything, but, from the
looks of things at present, Longfellow and
Whittier are going to be crowded in a few

JOHN "Stuff" MIZSSINA is a wee bit
small to go out for inter-school-astic ac-
tivities, hut if anything is going on around
school, Stud' will be in the middle of it.
Lately, he has mystified us all as to how
he lost his two front teeth. Some say his
girl, others say his dad, Stuff doesn't say.
It is my personal belief that he knocked
them out on the front door of his gro-
cery, for that is where he spends most of
his time. "In the future," he says, "I
wish to have a tremendous store, where
all my best friends will shop."

JAMIZS RAYMOND MURPHY, or
"Muff" as he is commonly called, is :A
leader at everything that he has tried at
C. H. S. Ile was an oflieer in every one
of his classes, an oflicer in the band while
in its numbers, a letter maker in boxing,
golf and band, and a member of the Na-
tional Honor Society, for nearly all of the
eight semesters he spent at school. A well
liked character on the campus, Muff will
undoubtedly go to college, and "make
good" in some profession.
JOHN MOORE, better known as long,
lean and lanky, is tops in friendliness.
Though he is not famous for his scholastic
reports, he has done well with the Catholic
Hi eleven for the last three years at end.
A swell "guy" as well as a good student,
he has prophesied by his line conduct
record that the world to come can expect
great things from him.
PAT MCKELVY has everybody fooled
as to what his real name is. Since you
readers will learn at graduation anyway,
I will break the spell. Actually his name
is Fred Matthew. Where they got Pat,
even he doesn't know. Really, though,
Pat's hard working technique has brought
him fame in his studies for in '47, he was
awarded the Religion medal for the school,
a singular honor. Although he has no
particular interests at present, it is rumored
that he plans to attend college.
und swell guy of the class of
'49 is FRANK NOBLE. I'Iis innate quiet-
ness has won this for him. He has played
football on the varsity since his freshman
year and was quite mad when he was de-
clared ineligible this last year. He made
up for this, however, since he became man-
ager of the team and without his help, the
team would go to pieces. There is some-
thing about him that urges the team on,
that also helped him the all-round. No
doubt we'Il all miss you, Frank.
ROBERT MURDOCK. Following in
the footsteps of his illustrious brother,
Woodie, Bob has captured the title of
"best dressed" at Catholic High for the
last three years. This title climaxed a
long search for distinction on the part of
Bob which first took him to the football,
basketball and scholastic fields of endeavor,
but to no avail.
i Wk- ' fi bfi,
"L0gy" NIIARN, who's real name is
Charles, is famous all over the city for his
. . . Heh-Heh . . . automobile. A '36
Chevy, it does well to crawl, not run.
Truly, the antique gets in there, and usu-
ally in one piece. In studies, Charlie eX-
cels in Spanish, being a star in Sr. Rita's
class. CWhom do I think I'm kiddingj. Mr.
Nearn has a strange craving for anything
with a motor in it, so it wouldn't surprise
any of us here at school if he turned out
to be a "Doctor of Motors", or a "Carbu-

ERNEST TRIZMMITL, or Buddy as his
friends call him, has the spirit that knows
no bounds. At the start of this season he
look care of our kick-offs and some of our
punts. I.aier, however, his knee was in-
jured and since then he has been a staunch
eheerer for all the school's activities. Aside
from his fine school spirit, he is an average
in studies, application and deportmentg so
remember, dear readers, the foundation of
the world depends on average people.
LARRY Hfillllllll-Y Cm.-ki" WEI.CH is
probably most noted here for his excellent
job as Exchange Editor for the Muguel and
the annual. liesides this, he has written
many articles for Sr. Gabriel in her Journ-
alism Class. Though he is not on the
Ilonor Society, he has been above average
in most of his studies all four years, and it
is this type boy that presidents and gen-
erals are made of.
A. J. VENIZZIA. Having won the medal
for the "queen" of the sciences last year,
he has always been a leader in this phase
of schooling as well as others. He plays
in the band, sings in the glee club, writes
for the paper and the Citusfimik, and, in
the first semester of his last year here.
entered the XVestinghouse Science Talent
Search. Congratulations on a fine record,
Now we come to the boy who has taken
part in the most activities. It's ALFORD
WOOD. just to name a few of the or-
ganizations to which he belongs let us
start with: The Spanish Club, The Mathe-
matics Club, The Band, The Gregorians,
The Honor Society, Editor of the Magnet,
The Thalians and actually many others.
No wonder he won the activities medal in
the summer of 1948. Even though it looks
like he has his hands in everything, he is
a regular guy and a most likeable fellow.
A little below we speak of the
spirit of Buddy Trcmmel. The next perf
son We discuss at least equals this. Yes.
he's MARTIN XVIQNZLIQR, Although he
has been behind the school all the way, he
certain proved it his last year. Wliile
playing left-half in the last football game
of the 1948 football season, Martin broke
his knee in three places. Although he
spent over a month out of school, he
Hnished OL!! the semester, but when it
came time for exams, you couldn't tell
his papers from the rest except perhaps the
handwriting was a little ragged. You bet!
He passes them all. Thanks a lot for your
spirit too, Mr. W'enzler.
None of us will ever forget big JOE
XVILLIAMS. This forceful line man of
the gridiron, this tall center of the hard-
wood court, this frientl to all has boosted
the popularity of C. H. S. by leaps and
hounds. Though he was not known
throughout the city for his athletics until
his last year because of knee and ankle in-
juries, it didn't take long for him to be
called a hard tackler and a dead-shot with
a basketball. The whole school looks up to
you, Joe, not because of your size, but for
your sportsmanship and all-round qualities.
W. WULFF. Wliere would the clarinet
section of Mr. Corneille's band be without
Willie Wulff. Let me tell you. Behind
the 8-ball. Willie has been a member of
it for three years, and even though he
hasn't played Hrst chair music, he has do-
nated his talent to make it one of the best
organizations of its kind in Memphis. He's
a quiet, courteous, gentlemanly student,
and these qualities will always be an as-
set to anyone.
JOE XIQUES. Last on our list in al
phabetieal order is joe Xiques. Hailini
from Sacred Heart many of you already
know him from his football fame. Becausi
of his terrific speed, joe also has won hi
letters in baseball as an outfielder. Hi
friendly and easy going attitude has mad
him a friend, indeed, of everyone at Catho
