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. apr"- 'T N 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 like him. 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 fellow. 3. 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 great things. l 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 years.

Ls Q-.-I 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." gg, ... . y .mtssiq 'JQSAH 'i i 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- retor Specialist". rs Q ' sig, ,. 5 jzstjg af. .

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, fi. J. -7 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. as . ,gr 'YS s 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. 1-vs.. V 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 lic High.
