The liberal arts college, as its name implies, stands 
in a unique historical relationship to the cause of 
human freedom. From its remote beginnings in 
ancient Greece, it has been identified with man's 
quest for a more human life, and consequently for 
those freedoms — political, social, intellectual and 
personal — that make such a life possible. It is not 
surprising, then, that tensions of freedom and 
authority, of initiative and obedience, of creativity 
and tradition, have been felt here first and more 
i than anywhere else. 


But talent is common, too — it's all around 
us, only most of the time it gets wasted. 
The masses are lumpy with talent, as I 
keep saying. You just can't judge the in- 
telligence, the talent of the American 
masses by talking with them; you've got 
to work with them to know that. 

Eric Hoffer 

To live effectively is to live with 
adequate information. Thus, com- 
munication and control belong to 
the essence of man's inner life, even 
as they belong to his life in society,

Vatican Council II gives a fresh insight into 
our Christian vocation — an invitation to a 
loving personal involvement with our fellow 
man, measured only by the infinite love of 
Christ. The best response is coming from 
the present generation of young men and

man should be very much con- 
' about the whole mankind, not just 
himself or a few around him. Our thoughts, 
our pronouncements , and our actions should 
reflect this concern. Love is a better word 
for it.

It is this kind of competition — the Strife which 
Hesiod defines as a force not hostile among men, 
but wholesome for them (Works and Days 11-26) 
— which governed the Greeks of long ago. It has also 
governed you — in athletic competition and academic

It's a demanding principle to follow. May it now,

A liberal education is the steady trimming 
away of the suet of prejudice. The classroom 
is only a minor instrument for this daily opera- 
tion; ideally, the sharp edge of spirit and mind 
yearning for freedom in truth is the better tool. 

The role of the teacher . . . to spend him- 
self and to be spent . . . to challenge ever 
anew . . . to cause and to witness the trem- 
blings of the spirit . . . to sing a new song 
to a new generation and to sing an old song 
in a new way . . . to push toward excellence 
and to strive toward distant horizons, as yet 
uncharted, in the excitement and adventure 
that is learning, that is teaching, that is being. 
J. H. M.

The ethical goals of a Holy Cross education 
should be described in their New England 
context as well as through their Catholic 
heritage. Therefore, I accept as a viable 
philosophy of education that which balances 
a Christian sense of community with an 
Emersonian self-reliance. 


Vision and bearing and harmony were given by the 
muses to him who can use them intellectually, not 
as an aid to irrational pleasure, as is nowadays sup- 
posed, but to assist the soul's interior revolution, to 
restore it to order and concord with itself. And be- 
cause of the want to measure and lack of grace in 
most of us, rhythm was given to us by the same gods 
for the same ends.

It is by no means enough that an officer of 
the Navy should be a capable mariner. He 
must be that of course, but also a great 
deal more. He should be as well as a gentle- 
man of liberal education, refined manners, 
punctilious courtesy, and the nicest sense 
of personal honor. 

John Paul Jones 

I am always buoyed up by the hope that I may have made 
at least a minimal contribution to the cultural progress of 
those students with whom I have shared the classroom 
encounter. To me the classroom is a cooperative community 
where everyone is learning and sharing and from which 
the idea of superiority and inferiority is absent.

Education for our time can offer jew answers of 
consequence; it can instruct in the ways of doubt, 
dissent and inquiry and it should convey a toler- 
ance for the uncertainties such instruction breeds. 
What we really need, after all, is an ability to find 
and stay with the right questions.

To a Clay Priestess 

On failing legs 

the clay priestess leaves, 

a feigned cripple, 

a cultic child, 

and a lithe, insensible elder. 
This woman is the one 

who blindly gropes along 

making tin calliope music 

with the scrape of hips 

on the comparative sand cloth 

of her dress. 
She sounds of the interim strains, 

the dying martial music 

of a new and violent taste; 

the sound of her white robe 

swishing the carnage 

from an innocent pagan altar. 
Behind her, a herd of mute 

but gutteral murmuring beasts, 

walking unscarred, unwashed, 

and untaken 

by her sacrificial wiles. 
This is her mobile 

of balance, skin filagree, 

and crepe, 

set in motion by the winds 

of minute theatrical lines 

played to deaf ears 

by her former subjects. 
Now, by an unfelt praise of smiles, 

she summons those who wait docile 

for the priestess to return. 
Those who will find 

that she walks Homeric blind, 

and only whimsically gropes.

And what if time 

stood still 
like dew upon the grass 
Crystalline beads caught 

prism ing the sun

endowing time 
with his eternity. 
Time do not forget man 

but flow on 

sweeping him ever onward 
beyond his omega.

H.C. Army 14 

The 1966 Holy Cross Varsity Football Team opened 
its season with a trip to West Point, New York, to 
play the Black Knights of the Hudson in Michie 
Stadium. The Crusaders lost 14-0, but their style of 
play foreshadowed their successes in the later season. 
The Cadets were led by quarterback Steve Lindell, 
fullback Mark Hamilton, and halfback Chuck Jarvis. 
Hamilton and Jarvis scored the two touchdowns, 
with able assistance from field general Lindell. The 
game marked the return of Jack Lentz to the Holy 
Cross line-up after sitting out his entire junior year 
with a knee injury. The Lentz to Pete Kiminer passing 
combination provided the offensive highlight for the 

Purple forces. On defense, three juniors, Dick Giardi, 
Glen Grieco, and Dick Krzyzek, were the stand-outs, 
as they disrupted the Army offense all afternoon. 

The final decision reflected the offensive edge held 
by the Black Knights, as both teams presented ex- 
cellent defensive efforts. The final statistics reflected 
this, as the Cadets gained 141 yards on the ground 
and 134 in the air to the meager 44 and 95 yards 
for the Purple offensive. At no time were the Cru- 
saders able to move the ball deep in Army territory. 

The big bright spot was the defense, and prog- 
nosticators marked them as the key to Crusader for- 
tunes in the coming season. 

Homecoming 1966 saw the Crusaders bring the 
potential shown in the Army game back to Fitton 
Field, where they beat Dartmouth — 1965 Lambert 
Trophy winners — and halted the Big Green winning 
streak at eleven. Jack Lentz and Glen Grieco were 
named the outstanding offensive and defensive players 
in the upset win. Lentz also won the John Turko 
Memorial Award, given annually to the outstanding 
performer in the Homecoming contest. 

It rained all day, but the weather did not seem to 
bother the Crusaders — both on the field and in the 
stands — as everyone did their part for victory. Holy 
Cross scored in the second period, when Jack Lentz 
capped a 30 yard scoring drive set up by Dick 

Krzyzek's recovery of a Pete Walton fumble. Mike 
Kaminski added the point, and H. C. had a 7-0 lead 
at halftime. 

The lead stood until the fourth quarter, when 
Dartmouth gained possession on the Purple 30, and 
quarterback Mickey Beard brought the Indians in for 
the score. Coach Bob Blackman decided to go for 
win with a two point conversion, but Beard's pass 
to Bob McLeod was broken up by cornerback Bob 

The defense had a tremendous afternoon. Grieco 
and Krzyzek spent the afternoon in the Green back- 
field, throttling Beard and speedster Gene Ryzewicz. 
The victory was well deserved, and was a tribute to 
the work of the entire team.

The Crusaders brought their record to 1-1-1 as they 
fought the Colgate Red Raiders to a 14-14 tie at 
newly dedicated Andy Ker Stadium in Hamilton, 
New York. 

After a frustrating first 30 minutes of football, 
the Crusaders, under the leadership of Jack Lentz, 
fought back with a devastating attack to gain the 
indifferent tie. 

The many aspects of kicking, or rather the failure 
of Colgate booters, gave the Crusaders their oppor- 
tunity. The first Purple marker was scored by Paul 
Scopetski as he raced 20 yards with a blocked kick. 
Colgate scored two touchdowns, but on neither occa- 
sion could they add the PAT which would have 
spelled victory. 

The Red Raiders completely outplayed the Cru- 
saders in the first half. But even so, they could only 
manage an 8-7 lead, on a touchdown and a safety, 
at the midway point. 

Holy Cross rushed back with a big second half 
rally on the deadly tosses of Jack Lentz. He hit on 
11 of 17 passes in the half for 173 yards and one 
touchdown. Colgate's quarterback — the elusive Ron 
Burton — kept the Crusader defense alert all after- 
noon. Burton, a lightweight, avoided the heavy traf- 
fic with his quick moves and fakes. 

In the final analysis, the Crusaders played a tough 
team to a standstill, and left Hamilton looking for- 
ward to their next contest, against Boston University 
the following Saturday. 

H.C. 17 B.U. 14 

The vaunted Holy Cross defense rose to the occasion 
as they shut off a last second Boston University drive 
on the one-foot line to preserve a 17-14 lead at 
Nickerson Field in Boston. 

Both Crusader touchdowns were set up by inter- 
ceptions. In the second period Dick Giardi grabbed 
a Terrier aerial at the B.U. 24, and five plays later 
Jack Lentz hit Tony D'Agata for the score. 

In the middle of the fourth quarter, safety Tom 
Kelly intercepted on the home 47, and raced it back 
40 yards to the 7. Ralph Lilore carried it over for 
the score. Besides converting both PAT's, Mike 
Kraminski found the range from 29 yards out in the 
third quarter to provide the three point margin of 

After a patented Purple first half, B.U. led 14-7. 
Terrier Reggie Rucker electrified the homecoming 
crowd with a 71 yard punt return in the first period. 
The other B.U. score came on a 35 yard pass play 
from quarterback Tom Thornton to end Capt. Bob 

It was a serious contest all the way. In the closing 
moments the Terriers had a first and goal from the 
Crusader 6 yard line. On fourth down the clock ran 
out with the ball on the one foot line. 

Boston University had given the Purple a scare, 
and the team could thank a great last-ditch defensive 
effort for the 2-1-1 record they carried into the Syra- 
cuse game at Fitton Field. 

The Crusaders did indeed play Syracuse, and though 
they lost 28-6, they battled the machine-like Orange 
horde every step of the way. 

The play was even through the first half, as the 
score stood 0-0 at halftime. And in the third period 
the Cross was again on the move, only to have a 
freak pass interception give Syracuse a 7-0 lead, and 
an unsurmountable psychological advantage. 

The final score was hardly indicative of the final 
contest. The Orangemen added 21 more points in 
the fourth period, as the Crusaders were forced to 
pass, pass, pass, in a desperate attempt to come back. 

The statistics, unlike the score, were almost even, 
reflecting the true battle. Jack Lentz scored the only 
Holy Cross touchdown on a beautiful five yard run, 
as he carried three Orangemen over with him. 

However, the Crusader defense suffered two severe 
blows. Glen Grieco — All-East middle guard during 
four previous weeks, injured his ankle and missed the 
entire second half. "Crusader" Dick Giardi was 
ejected from the game early in the fourth quarter 
by the whistle-happy referees. The quality of the 
officiating throughout the contest was dubious. Near 
the end of the first half, a Kaminski field goal at- 
tempt was twice declared good, and then disallowed. 

After a tough first half of the season, the Cru- 
saders owned a credible 2-2-1 record, and Coach Mel 
Massucco hoped that fate would be kinder to the 
Purple in the future. 

H.C. 6 Syracuse 28 

The Purple gridders faced the second half of their 
schedule quite optimistically. Talk about five con- 
secutive wins to close out the season was wide- 
spread. Buffalo had other ideas. 

Led by powerful fullback Lee Jones, the Bulls 
literally tore the vaunted Crusader defenses apart 
for five touchdowns in a 35 to 3 romp. The Cru- 
saders got on the scoreboard first on a Mike Kaminski 
field goal, but it was all Buffalo for the rest of the 

Speedsters Mick Murtha, Rick Wells, and Jim Barks- 
dale made effective use of the Bulls' option rollout 
play, and Jones gained most of his 167 yards crash- 
ing through the middle of the Crusader line. 

The Holy Cross offense suddenly stopped moving 
after the field goal had given them the short-lived 
lead. Once the Bulls gained the momentum, they 
never lost it. 

The lone offensive standout for the Crusaders was 
Ralph Lilore, who ran for 73 yards in ten carries. 
Both the injured Jack Lentz and Phil O'Neil had a 
hand in trying to move the seemingly listless Cru- 
saders, but the cold, windy, and generally miserable 
game conditions seemed to bother Holy Cross more 
than they did Buffalo. 

This was perhaps the turning point of the season 
for the Crusaders. With their worst game of the 
season behind them, they were now prepared to 
tackle the rest of the schedule with added determina- 
tion and confidence. 

H.C 3 Buffalo 35 

* c-raSw 

H.C. 16 U. Mass. 14 

Recovering from the drubbing at Buffalo, the Cru- 
saders delighted a Parent's Weekend crowd as they 
edged past the University of Massachusetts Redmen 
16-14 at Fitton Field. 

The Purple dominated play for 55 minutes. But 
then, the dazed Crusaders had to hold for dear life 
as the Redmen scored 14 quick points in the last 
five minutes. 

While the Purple forces spent the afternoon in 
U.Mass. territory, they moved the ball into the end 
zone only once, on a 17 yard run by Jack Lentz in 
the first period. Aside from that, the scoring all 
came from the talented toe of Mike Kaminski. The 

pre-med specialist booted field goals of 25, 22, and 
25 yards, in addition to his conversion of the Lentz 

Lentz displayed the form which he had exhibited 
as a sophomore, picking up 110 yards overland in his 
best effort of the season to date. 

The offense showed that they could move the ball, 
though the scoring punch lacked something. Ac- 
cording to the statistics, the score should have been 
much greater in favor of the Purple. 

The victory was re-assuring after the loss at Buf- 
falo. The team seemed to find itself in this one, as 
they evened their record at 3-3-1. 

A brilliant display of offensive power by Jack Lentz 
led the Crusaders to a 24-12 victory over the Scarlet 
Knights on rain-soaked Fitton Field. 

The Lentz effort was almost equalled by Rutger's 
end Jack Emmer, who caught 13 passes for 237 yards, 
smashing seven all-time Rutgers receiving records. 

The Crusaders offense looked its best of the season 
as they moved the ball for 413 total yards — 296 on 
the ground and 117 in the air. Lentz had his best day 
of the season as he contributed 138 yards afoot, and 
the whole 117 aloft. 

But it was a team iffort. The offensive line, hitting 
with harsh authority, pushed the Scarlet offense all 

over the field. Tim Hawkes electrified the hardy 
crowd with a 47 yard scoring run in the first period. 
And "Crusader" Dick Giardi blocked both a field goal 
attempt and a PAT. 

But mostly it was the unsung heroes of the offen- 
sive line; guards Bill Morris, Bob Abbate, and Tom 
Heilman, tackles Bob Mahoney and John Gorter, 
and center Dick Grise. The big holes were there all 

Although the statistics were fairly even, due main- 
ly to Jack Emmer, the Purple dominated play. Much 
of the Rutger's yardage was gained when the issue 
was no longer in doubt. 

H.C 24 Rutgers 12 

H.C16 U.Conn. 

Over 5,000 loyal Holy Cross rooters sacrificed the 
nationally televised Notre Dame-Michigan State 
game and braved the cold weather to watch their 
Crusaders defeat the University of Connecticut, 16-0. 

Jack Lentz once again provided the vital spark in 
the Purple attack, picking up 125 yards on the 
ground and completing 5 of 11 passes for an addi- 
tional 45 yards through the air. 

The Crusaders found themselves looking ahead to 
their encounter with Boston College and consequently 
did not possess their usual sharpness. 

However the Huskies spent most of the afternoon 
trying to get out of their own backfield, thanks to 
the fine efforts of defensive standouts Glenn Grieco 
and Dick Krzyzek, and thus could never get a sus- 
tained drive going. 

The Holy Cross offense lost the ball three times 
through fumbles, and despite being sporadic at times 
did prove to be consistent enough to register two 
touchdowns and a field goal. 

Lentz got the Crusaders on the scoreboard in the 
first quarter with a 26-yard rollout scamper. A second 
quarter 51 -yard drive was culminated with a one- 
yard plunge into the end zone by sophomore Dan 
O'Rourke, and the Crusaders led at the half by a 
13-0 score. 

Kicking Specialist Mike Kaminski closed out the 
afternoon's scoring with his seventh field goal of the 
year from 22 yards out. 

The win, though from all appearances insignificant, 
was indeed important. It guaranteed the Crusaders 
their first winning season since 1963. 

H.C32 B.C 26 

It was easily the most exciting game of the long 
and fierce rivalry. Rallying on the accurate arm of 
Jack Lentz, the Crusaders defeated the Boston College 
Eagles 32-26 at Chesnut, and thus closed out their 
record at 6-3-1. 

Early indications were that the Cross was going 
to match the 76-0 thrashing delivered by the Eagles 
in the by-gone days of World War II. Lentz ran for 
the first marker himself, and threw 28 yards to sure- 
fingered Tom Haley for six more. Meanwhile Mike 
Kaminski and his fabulous foot converted both times, 
and added two field goals from 44 yards each. The 
score at the end of the first period was 19-0 Holy 

But then, ecstasy turned to dismay, as the Purple 
fell apart before an Eagle rally which made the score 
20-19 at the half. 

After intermission the two teams traded touch- 
downs, but B.C. still held the lead 26-25. The Eagles 

had the ball and the momentum as they started an- 
other drive. But the threat was turned back by Tom 
Kelly, as the baseball All-American intercepted to 
return the ball to the Purple offense. 

Jack Lentz started a methodical march down field, 
working sideline patterns to save time. And then, 
with only a minute left, on a broken pattern, Pete 
Kimener broke into the clear on the left sideline. 
The pass was perfect, and with Kaminski's boot the 
score was 32-26. 

Jack Lentz became the first two time winner of 
the coveted O'Melia Award for his fine play. And 
the victory typified the accomplishment of a 6-3-1 
record against tough competition. 

Crusader football is finally showing signs of emerg- 
ing from the doldrums. With many fine returning 
lettermen, the only problem would seem to be re- 
placing the incomparable Jack Lentz. 


The Holy Cross Soccer team played its second full 
season as a varsity sport this fall and met with mod- 
erate success. After getting off to a poor start, the 
team won five of its last six games to finish the sea- 
son at 5-5-1. 

The Crusader booters came alive during the second 
half of the season, thanks mainly to the offensive 
punch of their two top scorers Bob Peck and Jose 
Olbes, and the outstanding goaltending of Frank 

Led by Captain Roeland Brenninkmeyer, the team 
started the season with a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to 
Assumption. A disorganized 4-0 loss to M.I.T. fol- 
lowed, but the Crusader booters rebounded by play- 
ing a strong game against a rugged Nichols outfit. 
The Crusaders lost a tough 2-1 decision in this one, 
absorbing the defeat in double overtime. 

The next two encounters saw the booters tie Clark 
2-2 and lose to Nasson College of Maine 6-2. Then 
came the revival. New Hampshire College of Ac- 
counting fell 3-1, thanks to the hat trick by Jose 

Three goals by Bob Peck paced Holy Cross to a 
4-1 win over Lowell Tech. This was probably the 
team's best overall performance, as the booters played 
well both up front and on defense. 

A strong Worcester Tech squad handed the Cru- 
saders a 4-1 loss, but it was to be their final loss of 
the year, as wins over U.R.I., Stonehill, and the Uni- 
versity of Hartford closed out what the booters all 
considered a successful year. 

The great improvement over last season's 2-7 rec- 
ord gives rise to high hopes that Coach Don Lund- 
quist's outfit will continue its progress in the future. 

Cross Country 

The varsity cross country team, despite dropping its 
first two meets and losing key runners during the 
New England Championships, finished the year with 
a respectable 5-4 record in a season filled with 
individual outstanding performances. 

Sophomore Jim Quinn and Senior Brian Kingston 
led the harriers throughout the season, with Quinn 
breaking the home course record against Albany State. 

The highlight of the season came against Boston 
College as the Eagles' Bill Norris came home first, 
but was followed by seven Crusaders in a meet which 
Holy Cross won easily, 20-43. 

The varsity harriers were hard hit with injuries 
in the New Englands as Quinn, Kingston, Rich 
Peters, and Tim Joyce were all forced to withdraw 
from the race because of injuries. 

The frosh team, led by the record-breaking run- 

ning of Art Dulong had only a mid-season loss to 
Providence mar what could be considered a perfect 

Dulong, Art Martin, and Jim Walsh finished 1-2-3 
in most of the meets, while receiving some strong 
support from Joe O'Rourke and Bill Gallagher. 

Despite a third-place finish by previously unbeaten 
Dulong, the frosh harriers tied Providence for first 
place in the New England Meet. 

The season reached its culmination point at the 
IC4A Meet at Van Cortland Park, N. Y., as Dulong 
broke the course record and the Crusader runners 
swept to the team title. 

The construction of a $40,000 Tartan all-weather 
track and the addition of these standout frosh har- 
riers make prospects for an outstanding varsity cross 
country team next season appear extremely bright.

"NIT, NIT" — shouts were heard from the more 
than 2,000 Holy Cross fans — students and alumni — 
packed into Fordham University's fieldhouse as the 
Crusaders were thrashing a hot Ram five. Fordham 
coach and NIT selection committee chairman John 
Bach had to wait only three more days before he 
could get his wish and keep the Cross out of his 
suddenly "nationally-oriented" tourney. For Satur- 
day, February 25, at the Worcester Auditorium be- 
longed to one man — Jimmy Walker — who was even 
more responsible than Bach for keeping Holy Cross 
out of New York's spotlight. 

This 1966-67 basketball season was, as predicted 
by coach Jack Donahue, a typical one for a team 
dominated by sophomores. It started back in early 
December at that cold gym in Hanover where Holy 
Cross bested a weak Dartmouth squad 72-55. The 
man with the golden arm, Ed Siudut, opened his 
varsity career with 18 points, as did Al Stazinski, who 
brought new strength into his junior year. The bull 
of the backboards, Keith Hochstein, started where he 
left off last season and smothered 17 big rebounds. 

Then disaster struck with four straight losses — 
St. John's 77-60, Yale 90-73, Army 65-44, and West- 

ern Kentucky 90-84 — but the last of these turned 
the tide of the season as the Cross became tougher 
in each successive outing, winning fourteen of their 
next seventeen contests. 

St. John's was just too much, too soon. All-Ameri- 
can Lloyd Dove gave Ron Texeira some offensive 
lessons with 24 points and was aided by the next in a 
long line of stars, soph John Warren. Warren was 
the first to show the only way of defensing Ed Suidut 
— don't let him get the ball — and outscored him 14 
to 9. This contest catapulted the Redmen from New 
York to a season which found them and B.C. at the 
top of the heap in the East, with both grabbing 
NCAA tourney bids. 

Then followed the two worst performances of the 
year by the Crusaders — at Yale and at Army. The 
Eli outhustled and outrebounded the much taller 
Crusaders 38-29, with only Ed Suidut and Keith 
Hochstein shining on offense, scoring 25 and 20 
respectively. Dick Stoner, 11 of 15 from the floor, 
Ed Goldstein, 8 of 13, and Neil Piller, 6 of 9, were 
too hot for the sluggish five from Mt. St. James. 

The drought continued at West Point where H.C. 
ran into some guerilla warfare first hand in the 

persons of Bill Schutsky and Steve Hunt who com- 
binded for 35 points and almost all of Army's re- 
bounds. Al Stazinski played only a short time due to 
illness, and Keith Hochstein broke a bone in his foot, 
which put him out of action for the next ten games. 
Keith played on the foot a good part of the second 
half and wound up with 16 points and 10 rebounds. 
The glorious trip to Miami and the Hurricane 
Classic lay ahead with Western Kentucky, the first 
round opponent, in the top five in the pre-season 
ratings, and Holy Cross without Mr. Hochstein. Coach 
Donohue said before the tourney that "It means that 
Tex must do the job now. That much is certain." 
Ron Texeira now had some room in the pivot to 
move and gain the confidence he had noticeably 
lacked on Offense in the first four games. But the 
big names in H.C.'s fine game against Western Ken- 
tucky were Suidut and Stazinski. Easy Ed scored on 
14 of 27 from the floor and 9 of 11 from the free 
throw stripe, as Hilltopper Coach John Oldham com- 

mented, "Suidut is one of the greatest shooters I have 
seen anywhere . . . They were the toughest we've 
played this season." Staz held their All-American 
Clem Haskins to six field goals before fouling out 
with 7:20 to go. Referee Charlie Foutz of Western 
Kentucky's Ohio Valley Conference helped give 
Western Kentucky 35 foul shots to H.C.'s 23 and 
chipped in with two technicals on Coach Donohue. 

The consolation game found the Cross banging 
home 16 free throws, 10 by Chuck Mullane, in a 
five minute overtime period to defeat Pennsylvania 
89-84. Tex led four double-figure Crusaders with 21 
while pulling in ten rebounds. 

An identical five-point overtime victory followed 
at the University of Connecticut, as the Cross tri- 
umphed 74-69. This was a big step forward. The 
perennial Yankee Conference champs were unbeaten 
( six in a row ) at home and were heavy favorites over 
the 2-4 Crusaders, but Suidut, Stazinski, and Texeira 
out offensed and defensed the Huskies. Easy Ed 

banged home 11 field goals from his usual range, 
omnipresent Al hit for 17 points and had 20 re- 
bounds, while big Tex showed his natural defensive 
reactions in blocking shots and tickled the twines 
for 17. 

The Worcester Auditorium saw the Crusaders drop 
their second in a row at home before a packed, but 
student-less crowd to Fairfield 72-68. This one hurt. 
Excuses: no Keith, no cheering, no Tex for the last 
seven minutes of the game (via fouls). 13 baskets 
by Mr. Suidut in the second half, 36 points for the 
night, was the only offense the Cross could muster, 
as six double-figure Stag scorers made the difference. 

Then a five game win streak brought the season's 
skein to 8-5; as H.C. beat U.R.I. 74-66, Navy 58- 
56, Springfield 70-64, Dartmouth 75-64, and Colgate 

The Yankee Conference runner-up fell to the Cross 

as the men from the hill regained their touch on the 
road. Gerry Foley came in for Suidut in the second 
half and played so well at both ends of the court that 
Ed never got back in. This spark plus Al Stanzinski's 
23 marks were too much for the Ram five. 

The Crusaders then journed to Annapolis to meet 
a small but tough Navy squad. Jim Murray, now 
developed into the take-charge playmaker sought all 
along by Coach Donahue, and Chuck Mullane with- 
stood Navy's pressure defense, Tex played like Bill 
Russell in blocking countless shots, and yes — Ed 
Suidut creased the cords for 20 more big ones. 

Three easy wins followed, two at home against 
Springfield and Dartmouth, and the third at Colgate. 
Suidut kept up his average with 22, 25, and 20, as 
Ron Texeira continued to improve at both ends of 
the court. Sophs Chuck Mullane and Jimmy Moore 
gained valuable experience sharing backcourt duties 

with Jimmy Murray, while Al Stazinski adjusted well 
to the front court. The team was improving. 

The night after the Colgate game, the Cross went 
a little further north to Manley Fieldhouse on the 
Syracuse University campus. No one could have 
known how frustrating the next few hours would be. 
As the saying goes, "The final score (91-81) was no 
indication of how the game was played." Junior 
Vaughan Harper had taken over the reins from Coach 
Freddie Lewis, intimidated the referees, and screamed 
at Cross players shooting foul shots until Coach 
Donahue went after him, but was restrained (only 
Cross men were restrained) by the men in stripes. 
George Hicker, a blond bomber, and Richie Cornwall 
helped Harper put the Crusaders out of the game 
early in the second half with long range popping 
and a full court press. Mr. Stazinski single-handedly 
brought H.C. close at the end, winding up with a 
career high of 828. 

Back to Worcester — and as the Crusader put it, 
"The Return of the Native" — Keith returned ahead 
of schedule, and the rugged rebounder turned into 
a shooter (7 for 8) while the Cross stomped Boston 
University 115-60. Jovial Jack Donahue did anything 

bur try to roll it up. as evidenced by all eleven players 
hitting that scoring column with Joe ChristofT con- 
rriburing ten poinrs from off the bench. 

A distrastous rrip to Newton preceded a six game 
win streak. The Eagles' sophs, Terry Driscoll and 
Billy Evans, gave them the two key weapons of the 
fast break — the pitch-out and the middle man — to 
lead B.C. to their 92 -74 triumph. H.C. Senior Cap- 
tain Ralph Willard brought the Crusaders back 
after they fell behind (from down 42-40 to 57-42) 
when Ron Texeira sat down because of four fouls. 
The Cross never came all the way back. 

Ed Suidut came home to Worcester Auditorium 
and shot U. Mass out of sight with 37 points, as the 
Cross eased to a 78-65 triumph. Keith Hochstein, 
still limping, chipped in with 15, and Jim Murray 
played his usual great defensive game. 

Two more home wins followed: 88-69 over St. 

Anselm's and 92-85 against NYU. The front three 
were the difference in both contests. Hochstein (26), 
Suidut (24), and Texeira (19) sent St. Anselm's 
back to Manchester sorry that they had made the 
trip. It was sweet revenge for last year's drubbing at 
the hands of these same Hawks. 

The NYU game was the best many Crusader fans 
had seen since Jack the Shot departed from the hill. 
The unstoppable Ed Suidut put home 23 in the first 
half as H.C. held a 48-27 half-time stranglehold. 
Ed's assortment was from anywhere inside half -court 
at every possible angle — and some impossible. The 
auditorium banter at halftime consisted of three 
letters: NIT. Hopes were high. The second half did 
nothing to diminish these hopes, even though Mel 
Graham did something to bring the game to its 
final 7 point difference. Malcolm threw in every- 
thing, 46 points in all but 14 in the last five minutes 

when H.C.'s bench had been cleared. 

The win streak continued on the road against 
U. Mass (64-54) and Assumption (64-62). The 
Cross was ahead all the way in both contests. Murray 
and Stazinski beat the Redmen's press, and Tex 
shut off their high scorer, Billy Tindall, in the victory 
at Amherst. Suidut's 21 and Keith's 17 led the H.C. 

At the Greyhound's pit, hundreds of Assumption 
rooters and their team's press rattled the Cross until 
steady Al Stazinski hit four free throws in the last 
minute to ice the contest. Balanced scoring prevailed 
in this one as both Tex and Keith hit for 16, and Ed 
popped in 15. 

Now back to where we started: Fordham Univers- 
ity during Reading Week. Fordham scouting reports 
said H.C.'s backcourt ( Stazinski and Murray ) couldn't 
shoot, so the Rams' strategy was to sag on the big 
men inside. These big men got the ball, fired it im- 
mediately to our "bad-shooting" backcourt duo who 
proceeded to swish a combined 14 for 18 from mid- 
dle distance range to lead the Cross to a 73-63 
triumph. Keith added 12 foul shots (out of 13) to 
tie Al for top point-getter with 16, while big Tex 
hit five points in a row down the stretch (15 in all) 
and intimidated Fordham shooters all night long. 
A 15-7 record looked good for the NIT. 

The inimitable Jimmy Walker had one of the 
finest nights of his career when his Friars put the lid 
on H.C.'s NIT hopes. The 2-3 zone of the Cross 
gave Jimmy time for his long set shots (15 for 21 
from the field) and the refs gave him a few foul 
shots — 21 to be exact — of which the "Walk" hit 17. 
Providence came out with a unique defense: four 
men played their usual combination (man to man 
and zone) defense, while Walker stayed with Suidut 
wherever he went. The Cross never solved it, although

Keith Hochstein muscled his way for 31 points in 
the second half and 36 in all. 

The Crusaders won the honorary Yankee Confer- 
ence championship by knocking off U. Conn again, 
this time by a 70-61 margin. Tex had the best game 
of his two years, as he threw in 18 points, but more 
importantly blocked nine shots. Wes Bialosuknia, a 
29 a game scorer, went 4 for 29 from the field thanks 
to a tenacious defensive job by Al Stazinski and 
the ominous hands of Mr. Texeira. Balanced scoring 
once more put H.C. on top: Suidut 22, Tex 18, Staz 

The finale: a screaming host of Cross students saw 

B.C. end its regular season with a 21-2 record. An 
H.C. 17 point lead with 3:13 left in the first half, an 
11 point lead at half-time, but the score when it was 
over — B.C. 76, H.C. 71. Four fouls on Tex hurt, but 
B.C.'s depth hurt more. Steve Adelman kept them 
close with 17 in a row near the end of the first half, 
as the front line of the Cross dominated the boards 
(by 12 rebounds) and the score. Keith led the 
second half fight back and ended with 27 points. 
But, alas, the victory was not to be. It was the end — 
16 and 9 — no NIT, but shall we say the season was 
a beginning of a new era (the Donahue era) in Holy 
Cross basketball. 


Suffering badly from the loss of key members of the 
1965-66 team through graduation, the Crusader Vars- 
ity Swimming Team splashed through its toughest 
competition ever to a 3-6 season. 

The mermen opened rather inconspicuously against 
the University of Connecticut, as the Huskies defeated 
the Crusaders 66-28. Holy Cross was outclassed by 
the powerful Connecticut swimmers as U. Conn 
swept most of the events except the diving. 

After their opening loss, the mermen splashed 
to two victories in a row. They handled Nichols 62- 
33 before Christmas, and came back to beat WPI 
55-38 at the end of vacation. 

H.C. wasn't as fortunate, however, in its next meet, 
as it lost to the University of Vermont 37-58 in its 
only home meet of the season. The Cross got back on 
the winning track for the last time by beating Bab- 
son Institute 57-37 before the roof fell in. 

The roof consisted in four losses to end the sea- 
son: 28-67 to Springfield, 43-52 to Tufts, 35-60 to 
UMass, and finally 32-63 to MIT. 

Senior divers Pat Murphy and Sam Shoen swept 
through the first seven meets, undefeated by oppon- 
ent performers, in supplying the key scoring punch 
in almost every meet. Hard-fought losses to New 
England finalists from UMass and M.I.T. only cer- 
tified the Crusader divers' claim to some of the top 
positions on the local scene. 

Sophomore freestyle ace Dennis Johnson was a 
steady point-getter, peaking with a double win in 
the Babson meet. Versatile matators Tom Steffens 
(soph.) and Jim Boyle (jr.) proved invaluable to 
a team traditionally plagued by lack of depth. 

Sophomore butterfly specialist Bill Redmond prob- 
ably epitomized the spirit of hard work, lowering 
his times as many as twenty seconds in the 200-yard 
event while approaching school record clockings. 

Despite the disappointing record, the predominant- 
ly sophomore and junior team showed much promise 
for a brighter future, and provided new coach Paul 
Parenteau with a plethora of individual surprises. 


The 1967 hockey campaign turned out to be the 
best in many years for Holy Cross. The team won its 
first Worcester College Hockey League title and 
posted an overall record of 14-7. 

When veterans Bucky Minkel and Bob Moran 
were lost before the season started due to injuries, 
hopes were dimmed for the icemen. But due to the 
rapid overall development of the team, it got off to a 
torrid start, winning seven out of its first eight games. 
This included a 4-3 decision over tough UConn. 

Sophomores Billy Butler, Gerry Riley, Frank Har- 
tig, and Jay Gibbons gave coach Bill Kane speed 
and scoring punch in the lines. Matt Byrne, Dick 
Antoniuc, Pete Mullen, and Richie Ring also turned 
in fine two-way performances. Anchoring the defense 
was Captain Paul Doyle. He teamed up with Jim 
Farley and Mike Quinn, who developed into a solid 
body-checker, to give the Crusaders an aggressive and 
stubborn combination. Another sophomore, Bob 

Johnson, developed into a fine goalie and came up 
time and again with many sensational saves. 

About mid-season, injuries hit the team again. 
Richie Ring, Frank Hartig, and Pete Mullen were all 
forced to miss several games causing the team's per- 
formance to slip somewhat. However, Billy Butler, 
who led the team in scoring with 53 points, and 
Captain Paul Doyle, who chipped in over 20 points, 
led the team to the league title by defeating runner- 
up Nichols College 3-1 and 7-2, and a 6-4 decision 
over UMass in non-league play. 

The outlook is a bright one for Coach Bill Kane 
in the next few seasons. His young team turned in 
a fine season and Assistant Coach Bob Skinner has 
some talented freshmen ready to join the Varsity. 
Holy Cross Hockey has come a long way, but this 
should only be the beginning of its rapid develop- 
ment at Holy Cross. 


From pre-season forecasts, it looked as though the 
Crusader grapplers under Coach Hampton Perkins 
could look forward to at least a repetition of their 
winning 1965-66, first year record of 6-3, as spring 
interclass wrestling Olympics (1966) generated 
tremendous enthusiasm for the new sport, while at 
the same time, fall intramurals (1967) succeeded 
in bringing wrestling to the attention of still more 
people on campus. As the 1966-67 season got under- 
way against UConn (5-35), B.C. (5-34), Lowell 
(14-21) and Central Conn. State (11-26) the week 
before final exams, the H.C. matmen found them- 
selves inexperienced, lacking depth, and forfeiting in 
the lightweights — a problem which prevailed during 
the course of all their contests, with the exception 
of their exciting, "full team", single victory over 
Dean Jr. College (24-13). 

At 123 lbs., Gene Keogh (2-9), a first year grap- 
pler, showed real promise, especially in his match 
against Lowell State (11-7) and W.P.I. At 137, 
Bill Orsini (5-5-1), returning for his second year, 
wrestled admirably for the Crusaders, winning his 
last four matches. Bob Ganswindt (4-6-1), at 152, 
wrestling above his weight class, served his team 

well, turning in an unusually good performance 
against Brandeis, pinning his 177 lb. opponent in 3 
min. Rich Rodger (4-7), the most versatile and im- 
proved wrestler on the team, came through during 
his first year to win four out of his last six contests 
at 160 lbs. 

Senior co-captains Greg Smith (8-2-1) and Walt 
George (6-5) set the pace for the Crusader "grunt 
and groaners" this season. Greg, despite a severe 
ankle injury at the outset of the season, registered 
six pins, all within three minutes, to give him a 
heavyweight wrestling record at H.C. of 16-3-1, a 
most laudible accomplishment. Walt, wrestling at 
167 lbs., got off to a slow start, dropping his first 
five out of six matches on point decisions, only to 
come on strong at the end to win five straight, three 
by fall, to post 12 wins in 20 matches while wrest- 
ling two seasons for H.C. 

With eight Junior experienced grapplers returning 
next year, the prospects look bright for a winning 
season. This year's record of 1-10 was not at all 
indicative of the spirit of the team, as they wouldn't 
overcome their enormous lack of depth with any 
amount of work and desire. 


In its third year of varsity competition, the 1966-67 
Fencing Team completed its season with four vic- 
tories and seven defeats, finishing third in the New 
England Intercollegiate Fencing Tournament at Trin- 
ity College in Hartford. Senior co-captains Tom 
Spacek and Dan Floryan, along with seniors Wayne 
Sassano, Bob Wallyn, Tom Venus and Don Johnson, 
led the team in compiling its best winning percen- 
tage in its history. In the course of the season these 
two co-captains broke two Holy Cross records. Dan 
Floryan won twelve consecutive bouts to break the 
former record of nine, and Tom Spacek won ten 
consecutive bouts in the New England Tournament 
to break the former record, also of nine. Besides 
these six lettermen, the team was also aided by the 

efforts of juniors John Duax, Tony Nelan, John 
Debbins, and Bill Martin, and by sophs Phil Morri- 
son and Paul Shafer. 

The team entered all of its meets this year without 
the benefit of coaching, relying on the experience of 
its senior members, especially its captains. This ex- 
perience paid off in victories over Southeastern Mas- 
sachusetts Technological Institute, Norwich Academy, 
Brandeis, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, but 
the lack of coaching showed in the team's loses to 
Harvard, M.I.T., and Trinity. However, the prospect 
of a part-time coach for the near fuaire should en- 
able the team to compete more successfully with these 
opponents in coming years.

The 1966 outdoor season saw the Holy Cross varsity 
track team plagued once again by the two-fold jinx 
so familiar in the past: injuries and the lack of 
scoring power in the field events. As a result the 
Crusaders were the victims of several teams by nar- 
row margins, and they lost their New England Cham- 
pionship crown. 

On April 16th, the first annual Boston College 
Relays set the pattern of things to come. The Cross 
varsity dominated the running events, but when the 
field events totals came in, they found themselves in 
fourth place with 41 points, behind Manhattan (65), 
Boston College (61), and Northeastern (61). The 
two-mile relay team of Terry Horgan (1:58.7), 
Brian Kingston (1:53.4), Kevin Callahan (1:54.6), 
and Bob Bartolini (1:55.6) won their event in a 
time of 7:42.3, and the 440 and 880 relay team of 
John Collins, Paul Hartrey, Steve Harbeck, and Chris 
Shea also turned in winning efforts. The Holy Cross 
mile relay time of 3:16, set by Collins, Brian Flat- 
ley, Bartolini, and Shea, was the East's fastest up 
to that date. 

In the first dual meet of the season, the Crusaders 
lost a heart-breaking 78-76 decision to Dartmouth. 
Brian Flatley, first at the last hurdle, fell and had to 
settle for third. The Cross needed a 1-3 finish in the 
shot put to take the meet, and got the first on Joe 
Lilly's throw. But Pete Kimener, throwing for the 
first time, fell short of third by a mere six inches. 
High points for the Purple were the sweep of the 
half-mile, Chris Shea's 100 (10.3) and 220 (23.0) 
victories, Kevin Callahan's mile (4:22.3) and two 
mile (9:50.5) winning efforts, and the work of Paul 
Hartrey who scored in six events, including a win in 
the broad jump and seconds in the triple jump and 

The next week, the Crusaders traveled to Provi- 
dence where they were completely outclassed by the 
Brown Bruins. The only first places the varsity could 
garner were John Collins in the 440, Chris Shea in 
the 100, Dick Lague in the hammer, Brian Flatley 
in the 440 hurdles, and the mile relay team of Kings- 
ton, Flatley, Shea, and Bartolini. 

Against Springfield, in the first home meet of the 
year, the Cross dropped seven out of eight field 
events as the Maroons built up a 53-19 margin. This 
proved to be insurmountable, despite the work of 
Kevin Callahan, who won the mile (4:20.3) and 
two-mile (9:43), and Bob Bartolini, who won the 

440 in a stirring come-from-behind finish and aided 
in the sweep of the half-mile. The final tally showed 
Springfield 86, Holy Cross 63. 

The University of Massachusetts meet again saw 
the Cross drop a close decision, 76 Vi to 72 Vz, de- 
spite being outscored 46 l /2-25 l /2 in the field events. 
The near comeback was paced by Chris Shea with 
wins in the 100 and 220 and Kevin Callahan, who 
took the mile and two-mile. Bartolini, Kingston, 
Flatley, and Charlie Ekdahl also turned in single vic- 
tories. The big difference for the Redmen was Stan 
Maderios who won the broad jump, high jump, and 
triple jump, and placed in the 440 hurdles and the 
high hurdles. 

Against Boston College in the final dual meet of 
the year, the Crusaders finally received ample sup- 
port from the field events, as they swept the high 
jump and the triple jump, and took a first in the 
pole vault. However the big weightmen of B.C. 
scored 26 out of a possible 27 points, and Eagle dis- 
tanceman Bill Norris turned in an amazing perform- 
ance. Norris, who was presented with the Jack Ryder 
Club Award as the outstanding performer of the 
meet, took an astounding triple victory in the mile 
(4:18.7), the half-mile (1:55.3) and two-mile 
(9:42.3) events. Sophomore John Collins, returning 
from the injured list, smashed the school record in 
the 100 with a blazing 9.4 effort, and the mile relay 
team of Flatley, Kingston, Shea, and Bartolini set 
a track record of 3:17.6. Chris Shea turned in another 
fine performance, taking the 220 in 21.3 and seconds 
in the 100 and broad jump. 

In the New England Championship meet, defend- 
ing Holy Cross found themselves spread too thin, 
and after a hard fight were forced to take third with 
25 points, behind Boston College (33) and Central 
Connecticut (26). 

Sophomore John Collins was an individual stand- 
out, winning the 100 with a new record of 9.8 (wip- 
ing out the old record held by Holy Cross' Andy 
Kelly) and the 220 with 21.6. Chris Shea turned in 
one of his finest efforts with a second in the 220, 
a third in the 100, a fourth in the broad jump, and 
a fine mile relay leg. Brian Flatley, who ran the fastest 
qualifying time in the 440 hurdles, had the misfor- 
tune to fall in the finals. Co-captains Bob Bartolini 
and Kevin Callahan, seeking to come up with a 
winning combination, found they had taken on too 
great a task. Bartolini, who qualified in both the 
440 and 880, could not recover sufficiently for the 
finals, and took a fourth in the 880. Callahan, al- 
though he qualified for the 880, found that his non- 
scoring mile effort had taken too much out of him, 
and he placed only fifth in the 880 final. 

The mile relay provided a fitting finish to the 
frustating year as the Holy Cross team turned in the 
most moving performance of the meet. John Collins, 
leading off in his seventh run of the day, pulled a 
muscle after 150 yards, but in a display of pure 
determination fought to a 52.8 finish. Then Bob 
Bartolini, running 48.2 in his fifth race of the day, 
and Brian Kingston with 49.5 set the stage for Chris 
Shea, who took the baton twenty yards back and ran 
a fabulous 47.3 to finish one yard back in third place. 

The picture for the coming year is bright despite 
the graduation of Callahan, Bartolini, Shea, Flatley, 
Clarke, and Eagan. Returning are co-captains-elect 
Terry Horgan and Rich Peters, seniors Jim Fallon 
and Dick Eagan, juniors Brian Kingston and Paul 
Hartrey, and an array of talent from year's fresh- 
man team, including Jim Quinn, Mike Daley, Dan 
OConnell, Tim Joyce, Bob Dewey, Tony D'Agata, 
Joe Jameison, Tom Scanlin, Bob Welch, and Pat 


In its brief four year history here on Mt. St. James 
the international sport of rugby has grown steadily 
in its appeal to spectators and participants alike. 
Although it is not officially recognized by the Ath- 
letic Association, the Holy Cross Rugby Football 
Club affords the opportunity for some seventy-five 
students to participate actively on the inter-collegiate 
level in a sport which demands stamina, agility, and 

The Spring season of 1966 opened with a trip to 
the Monterey Invitational Rugby Championship in 
Monterey, California. On the basis of their fine record 
and reputation in Eastern Rugby, the Crusaders were 
the only team from east of the Mississippi to receive 
a bid to the tournament. 

The tournament was played on March 19 and 20, 
but the Purple arrived in California a week earlier. 
In their first contact with a western team, the Cross 
ruggers fought Santa Clara University to a 6-6 tie, 
and then defeated Sacramento State 6-3 two days be- 
fore the tournament began. 

In the opening round of the tournament, the Cru- 
saders drew top-seeded Stanford, and fell to this ex- 
cellent team by a score of 13-5. In the second game, 
a highly disputed one with UCLA, Holy Cross out- 
scored the Bruins 11-9. The Navy Phib-Pac team 
defeated the Crusaders in their final appearance in 
California. Though they did not finish high in the 
tournament standings, the ruggers returned home 
quite satisfied with their showing and the impres- 

sion of Holy Cross which they had left on the 

Several weeks after the trip, the officers of the 
club were contacted by the University of Kansas team, 
then on an eastern tour and eager to play Holy Cross. 
The Crusaders played their visitors right off the field, 
taking the A-game 18-0 and the B-game 11-0. 

Besides these highlights of the spring season, the 
Crusaders played a full schedule with eastern powers 
such as Brown, Harvard Business, Boston Rugby 
Club, Cornell, and Williams. 

This fall the team faced the ominous problem of 
rebuilding. Through graduation they had lost many 
of the men who had been mainstays of the team for 
three years, including their two fine coaches. Only 
; two experienced seniors were returning, and the bur- 
den lay heavily on the juniors and sophomores. The 
Crusaders had speed and determination but lacked the 
size and experience so necessary for a winning team. 

The ruggers started the season with a bang, rolling 
over Fordham by scores of 8-0 and 27-0. The Crus- 
aders then dropped two games to Dartmouth over 
Homecoming Weekend before embarking on a short 
southern trip which highlighted the fall campaign. 
After losing two close games to Princeton, they de- 
feated Villanova 11-0 and 13-0. In the final game of 
the season they fell to undefeated Brown 15-8 and 
8-6, while giving the Bruins their roughest game 
of the year. 


After just two years as an organized team, the Holy 
Cross Crew has established itself as a definite con- 
tender in the small college ranks. In its first season, 
the heavyweights finished ahead of five crews and 
lost to eighteen. In 1966, the crew won eighteen 
and lost fifteen. This is a greater accomplishment 
than it may seem, since the team went through the 
season without a coach. 

The season began with a strenuous week of double 
workouts on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia. 
The crew logged over one hundred and twenty miles 
in their six days of practice. 

As soon as Lake Quinsigamond was free of ice, the 
crew was out practicing in boats borrowed from the 
Shrewsbury Boat Club. One week later, the crew 
went to New York for its first test. It made an im- 
pressive showing by finishing one stroke behind the 
George Washington University Crew in its drive to 
the Grimaldi Cup. 

Holy Cross returned home to win a competition oh 
Quinsigamond, but lost the Worcester Championship 
to Clark the following weekend. After failing to 
qualify for the Rusty Callow Championships, Holy 
Cross traveled to Philadelphia for the "Dad Vail" 
Regatta, the small college equivalent of the East- 
ern Sprints. Holy Cross qualified on Friday after- 
noon. The crew members of the qualifying shell 
were Ed Grygiel, Dick Liguori, Tom Lamb, Bernie 
Dougherty, Pat Dietz, and Phil Jonik. The subs were 
Dan Jordan and Frank Kirby. On Saturday after- 
noon, the crew made a respectable showing, finishing 
eleventh out of twenty-three entries. Among the 
teams it beat were Clark and Notre Dame. 

In 1967, the prospects for the crew appear even 
brighter. Under the direction of Co-captains Ralph 
Orlandello and Dan Jordan, the team has acquired its 
first racing shell, the "Mamie Reilly." This, with 
the acquisition of a new coach, should make the Holy 
Cross Crew even more formidable. 


When the Holy Cross varsity tennis team began its 
1966 season, two problems were outstanding. First, 
it lacked experience. Five of last year's starting six 
had graduated, leaving junior Captain Ken La Vine, 
as the only returning letterman. So the team naturally 
did not have depth. However, with constant practice 
and good team spirit, both obstacles were overcome 
as La Vine and five sophomores, Dick DiGeorgio, Pat 
Clancy, Art Johnson, Bill Connolly, and Louie Big- 
liani, led the Crusader team to a winning season 
marred only by a cold, rainy spring which forced 
many cancellations. 

With Tufts rained out, the tennis team opened 
up against New Hampshire and scored their first win 
in a closely fought match. Babson was the next to 
fall to the young Crusaders. However, lack of team 
play caused two subsequent losses to tough Brandeis 
and University of Mass. teams. 

H. C. bounced back and soundly defeated a strug- 
gling Merrimack team. An extremely cold and windy 
day forced Stonehill and Holy Cross to play a de- 
fensive game with Stonehill coming out on top. 
Next, a typically strong Trinity team had no trouble 
in defeating the Cross. But this was the Crusaders' 
last loss as they went on to score victories over Wor- 
cester Tech, Assumption, and finally Boston College, 
thus posting a season's record of six wins and four 








The late "Hop" Ropel stated in April 1966, before his 
final season as Holy Cross baseball coach, that "we're 
in a rebuilding year." Hop's final pre-season pre- 
diction couldn't have been more true. 

The varsity baseball team's 11-7 record signified 
a talented but an eratic team. Eight lettermen were 
lost from the 17-5 '65 squad including the two top 
pitchers, Bud Knittel and Jim Bidwell. Therefore 
only five regulars returned, outfielders Tom Kelly 
and Jack Avis, catcher Jack McCarthy, shortstop 
Kevin Foster and pitcher Elliott Klein. 

Senior Klein opened up the season at Amherst, and 
pitched well after a shaky start, but saw his infield 
fail to support him as their four errors cost him a 
5-3 decision. Captain John Kerry, centerfielder Tom 
Kelly and sophomore rightfielder Jim Lee all banged 
out two hits, while second baseman Paul Kerns 
provided the power with a leadoff homer in the top 
of the fourth. 

The first home contest was next and the Friars 
of Providence College provided the opposition in 
what turned out to be the most exciting game of the 
season. It was the first of three extra inning battles 
the Crusaders played during the '66 season and they 
came out on top 4-3 in ten innings. Junior first 
baseman Tony Kopec came through as the hero when 
he stepped to the plate with one out in the tenth 
following John Kerry's and Jack McCarthy's suc- 
cessive singles. Tony latched onto a fastball and 
rocketed it onto the track in deep right center for 
a double, some 400 feet from the plate, to break the 
3-3 deadlock. The big lefty had put the Cross out 
in front in the first inning with a two-run triple 
in almost the same spot as the winning clout. Jack 

Avis singled him home and that, plus the ending blow, 
was all sophomore reliever Jim Goodwin needed to 
nail down HCs first victory of the campaign. 

Two more victories followed in the next two days, 
an easy 11-2 clobbering of U-Mass and a 6-4 deci- 
sion over AIC. The Redmen from Amherst came 
into Worcester with a 10-0 slate only to see the Cross 
score seven runs in the first two innings. Junior 
left fielder Jack Avis' 425 ft. two-run homer led the 
12 hit barrage, which also included three hits by 
Tom Kelly and two apiece by Jim Lee, Danny Mur- 
taugh and Kevin Foster. Elliot Klein evened up his 
record at 1-1 with a smooth six-hitter. 

The team was a thankful recipient of AICs gen- 
erosity at Springfield while gaining its third success 
in as many days. The Crusaders, outhit by a 12-9 
margin, downed the Aces, 6-4 in a game that saw 
the home team commit seven errors afield, while mak- 
ing several mental blunders. Jack Dolan went the 
route for his first victory of the season and was 
supported chiefly by Tom Kelly, who had two hits 
in four trips, making his four game total nine for 
fifteen — a .600 average. 

The win streak was briefly interrupted with a 9-5 
drubbing at the hands of an unbeaten Colby squad. 
Three more successes followed through: 1-0 over 
Seton Hall, 14-6, vs. BU, and 9-7 against Dartmouth. 

The Seton Hall game was the best-played game 
of the season. Elliot Klein and Billy Matusy hooked 
up in a duel of righties. Klein pitched a two-hitter 
and Matusy a three-hitter, with the only run being 
scored by "Hawk" McCarthy after singling, moving 
to third on Kopec's single, and coming home on 
Matusy's errant pick-off attempt on Kopec. 

Tom Kelly headed a 19 -hit attack that gave the 
Cross their fifth season victory over weak Boston 
University. The Crusaders broke a 5-5 tie in the 
fifth inning with a single run and then went on a 
scoring binge with four runs apiece in the sixth and 
seventh innings. Kelly's five hits and two RBI's, Kevin 
Foster's 3 hits, Danny Murtaugh's 3 hits, along with 
another good relief job by soph Jim Goodwin, gave 
John Dolan his second victory. 

A four-run eight-inning uprising sparked by win- 
ning pitcher Elliot Klein gave HC a 9-7 victory over 
Dartmouth. The senior righty knocked in the tying 
run and scored what proved to be the winning run 
as the Crusaders fought back from a 6-5 deficit. 

The Purple then reverted back to the opening 
game's inept defense, committed five errors, and 
handed Yale a 7-4 victor)', an important loss in the 
eyes of the NCAA committee. 

The third and final three game win streak fol- 
lowed — 6-3 at Tufts, 9-4 at Providence and 5-3 over 
Springfield in Worcester — and brought HCs record 
to a still respectable 9-3. 

The name Tom Kelly again came to the fore in 
the victories over both Tufts and Providence. His 

three singles and a double along with catcher Earl 
Kirmser's two-run insurance single in the ninth 
against Tufts gave Elliot Klein his fourth victory of 
the season. This was the first of six games missed 
by catcher Jack McCarthy, due to what was then an 
unknown ailment and later turned out to be tonsil- 
itis. The second victory of the year over Providence 
was a breeze for John Dolan's third success without 
a loss. Kelly, now batting third in the order instead 
of leadoff, banged out three consecutive doubles in 
four trips to the plate. 

Earl Kirmser's suicide squeeze with one out in 
the bottom of the sixth scored Jim Lee with what 
proved to be the winning run as Elliot Klein went 
all the way in the victory over Springfield. 

Two close loses in a row to Northeastern 7-6 and 
to Harvard 6-5 in 13 innings — plus a 5-0 white- 
wash by BC knocked HC out of any NCAA tourney 

The Harvard game went into the HC bottom of the 
ninth with Harvard leading 4-3. Here came the most 
the exciting and yet fearful play of the year. Paul 
Stagliano, the stocky halfback, had pinch-hit a 

ground-rule double and moved to third on now 
healthy Jack McCarthy's single. Jack Sheehan flied 
to left and outfielder John Dockery's perfect relay 
seemingly had Stagliano at the plate. But Paul had 
other ideas. He barrelled into catcher Joe O'Donnell, 
a football guard, knocking himself, O'Donnell and 
the ball out of the picture and landed unconscious on 
home-plate with the tying run. 

The Cross closed the season with a 2-1 ten inning 
triumph over Fairfield, an 8-6 loss to Dartmouth 
and a 2-1 season ending victory over BC. Against 
the NCAA regional tourney-bound Eagles, with the 
score tied 1-1 in the last of the ninth, Danny Mur- 
taugh walked and took second on Jack McCarthy's 
single. The pair then pulled a double steal and when 
the throw to third went into left field, Murtaugh 
was blocked and waved home on an interference call. 
The victory was the only varsity major sport triumph 
over Boston College all year. 

The rebuilding year was over, Hop Riopel's final 
season as HC coach had passed also. Tom Kelly was 
deservingly named All- American after batting .410 
and with only three regulars graduated, the prospects 
for the '67 season were very bright. 


The 1966 Crusader golf team enjoyed its most suc- 
cessful season in recent years, posting a 10-5 record. 
Paced by two extra-hole wins by Paul DeBarros, Holy 
Cross got off to a fast start and defeated Dartmouth, 
Worcester Tech, Amherst, and Brown. 

The team's winning streak ended harshly, however, 
when they traveled to Yale and were handed a 7-0 
blanking. The next match saw Holy Cross gain a split; 
losing to Harvard 4-3, but defeating Brandeis 6-1. 

After being edged by Army 4-3, the golfers went 
to Hanover to battle Dartmouth for the second time. 
Outstanding performances by John Anderson and 
Paul Petry, who won in extra-holes, enabled Holy 
Cross to win 4-3. The win was especially gratifying 
since Dartmouth is known as a team tough to beat 
on their home course. 

Two wins over arch-rival B.C. compensated for a 
5-2 loss at the University of Mass., and brought Holy 
Cross on to face Providence, the 1965 New England 
Champions. The Cross rose to the occasion and won 
4-3. Instrumental in this fine victory were the per- 
formances of Larry Corbett and Charlie Cangemi. 

After a disappointing showing in the Eastern and 
New England Championships, the team came down 
to the final day with a 9-4 record. Rain fell hard 
that day and Holy Cross split; dropping a 5V^TVi 
decision to Fairfield while shutting out Stonehill 7-0. 

The 1967 season will see the return of five of the 
irst seven golfers, led by Captain-elect John Ander- 
son. In view of their fine performance in 1966, the 
team envisions an even more successful campaign in 

Yacht Club 

This past year's edition of the Yacht Club met with 
great success during its Spring and Fall sessions. 
The highlight of the year came last May when the 
Holy Cross Yachtmen both hosted and won a Pen- 
tagonal Regatta on Lake Quinsigamond despite un- 
settled weather conditions and extremely close com- 

The Spring season started at the Tufts Univer- 
sity Yacht Club, sight of the New England Dinghy 
Eliminations. The Holy Cross Sailors finished third 
in a field of nine schools entered. 

On the following weekend Tufts was also host 
of an Intersectional Invitational for the Friis Trophy. 
This time Holy Cross crossed the line fifth in com- 
petition with fourteen other schools. 

The Fall season saw three more regattas for the 
Yacht Club. The Club was once again a successful 
host as it finished second behind Brandeis in competi- 
tion for the Danaghy Bowl. Holy Cross donated the 
award in memory of Bishop Donaghy, a heroic mis- 
sionary who suffered at the hands of the Chinese 

The Yachtmen's two other regattas were at Tufts 
for the Lane Trophy at the beginning of the season 
and an Undecagonal to close out the year. In both 
events Holy Cross finished in about the middle of the 
field of entrants. 

This was one of the most successful years for the 
Club in recent memory. There has also been a sub- 
stantial increase in membership over previous years. 

The Club is being led by Commodore Harold 
Clark. Also serving as officers were Vice Commodore 
John Cavicchi, Treasurer Joseph Conway, and Sec- 
retary Francis Reed. 



The Holy Cross Lacrosse team suffered another dis- 
appointing season last spring. Although the leader- 
ship of Co-captains "Crusader of the Year" Tom 
Foley and star goalie Pete Benotti was excellent, the 
team could not overcome the strong opposition as 
the Cross faced one of the toughest schedules in New 

The club got off to an auspicious start when they 
defeated Catholic rival Georgetown on the southern 
trip. A large Washington-area crowd was on hand to 
see the Purple overpower G.U. 6-2. Inexperience 
was, as usual, the key factor in the regular season, 
and in the opener Dartmouth massacred the Crusad- 
ers 18-2. 

Sophomore standout John Vironis drew a lot of at- 
tention after tossing in six goals during the team's 
first victory of the season against the University of 
Connecticut. Joe Tepas scored four more times in the 
rout which saw the Crusaders do everything right. 
The two attackmen worked exceptionally well all sea- 
son, and proved to be a constant threat to the op- 
ponent's defense. 

Only a shoulder injury kept goalie Benotti from 
All-American honors. Pete led the nation in saves 
after being runner-up his junior year. His acrobatics 
kept Holy Cross in many ball games, and he and 
Foley provided the spark that kept spirit alive 
throughout the season. Benotti was ably protected 
by defensemen Dave Wallingford, John Gorter, and 
Bill Donnelly. 

The Crusaders almost engineered the upset of the 
year when Ivy powerhouse Brown could manage only 
a 2-1 lead at half time. The Bruins' depth proved 
too much in the fourth quarter, however, and they 
came out on top of an 11-2 verdict. 

The most exciting game of the year was against 
the University of New Hampshire. Holy Cross had 
never beaten U.N.H., and were out to break their 
string. Goals by Ed Dimon and Fath Mathews in the 
last two minutes gave H.C. a 5-4 lead, but New 
Hampshire drove home two goals in the final seconds 
to win 6-5. 

Strong teams from Tufts and M.I.T. came to Mt. 
St. James and found blizzards. On both occasions the 
two clubs made it back to Boston with two goal 
decisions. Jim Carletti and Lou Nunez led the scor- 
ing against the Jumbos, while Vironis and Foley had 
markers against M.I.T. 

City rival "Worcester Tech proved tougher than 
expected, but the Crusaders turned them back 7-2. 
Paul Doyle and Mike Lambert led the scoring from 
midfield, while Tepas and Vironis shot well from 
inside. Once again goalie Benotti was brilliant. 

Harvard, C W. Post, Wesleyan, and Trinity scored 
decisive victories over Holy Cross, although the 
Purple were not the whipping boys that they had 
been in previous years. 

With a large number of returning lettermen and 
a fine group of sophomores, the 1967 team should 
be one of the best in Holy Cross history.

He was like a man who stands upon a hill 
above the town he has left, yet does not say 
"The town is near, " but turns his eyes upon 
the distant soaring ranges 

Thomas Wolfe 



Given in the beginning were two items, a class and a school. 

The class was a lonely crowd right out of the post-war 
baby boom seeking a space-age education. Half a thousand 
high school graduates gathered in a smoky, gray, mid- 
Massachusetts city to begin to learn and to start to compete, 
as compete they were told they must. It was a lonely crowd 
starting to try to talk in we terms rather than lonely 
crowd terms. 

The school was older and wiser than we — in the business 
to impart some of that wisdom once in a while. It was some- 
times alleged to be a place where purple banners float on 
high. But there weren't as many purple banners as there 
were crosses atop a Boston-ornate Fenwick Hall or dormi- 
tory rooms inside a government-subsidy, plain-style Healy 

The two items came together to stay that way for four 
years and see what they could do for each other. They met 
and talked and meshed and clashed. They interacted for 
nine months out of each four consecutive years, which is 
roughly 1,093 days, which is roughly 26,232 hours, which 
is roughly 1,573,920 minutes, which is certainly a long 

And behind it all there lurks a story. A short story about 
a long time. The entire story can't be entered into the record 
because each has his own details. But some of the better 
meshes and clashes were common to all and bear reviewing. 
Without poetry, without philosophy, without purple eye- 
glasses; we had all that in school. These, simply told, are 
the events — for the record. They began on Friday the 
Thirteenth of September in 1963. 

Our first year, above all, was one of casing the joint. You 
had to know the rules before playing this particular game. 
And, of rules, there were plenty. 

There was legislation covering class attendance and the 
same for Mass. Laws covered the consumption of milk in 
the Kimball Hall dining room and the use of electricity 
after 11 p.m. And, if the rules about milk were strict, the 
laws about beverages more enlightening were prohibitive. 

There were rules less apparent, but more important, gov- 
erning what society in a purple atmosphere should be like. 
These were the norms which made Holy Cross something 
between a long-haired Ivy League and a no-cool Notre 

Rules upon rules upon unwritten morms. They had to 
be learned and it had also to be determined when they 
could be broken. We were aided in this by being welcomed 
and instructed almost to death. 

Helpful corridor prefects welcomed the "Men of the 
Class of 1967." As did several faculty members and upper 
classmen during three years of mock classes in a new 
"freshman orientation" program. As did honorary class 

L u. 

president Donald F. Romano, a man with a perpetual tan. 
We were oriented up one side, over the top and down the 

Then the upper classes rolled in, laughing like they 
knew what was up. School days began and with them a long 
academic haul — if four years is long enough. Four years 
during which names like Smilin' Jack, the Rookie, Dirty 
Dan and the Wedge stood on one side. And names like 
Mugs and Hawk, Fensco, Eagle and the Humpties faced off 
on the other. For four years these two groups were to watch 
each other over school room desks of many inscriptions. 
And, in between, there was often little but sometimes much. 

Life settled down to a second-gear drag when it was 
learned that some unprecedented coeds from Quinsigamond 
Community College didn't really want to mingle. The cafe- 
teria route was taken by some who weren't choosy about 
their coffee and were satisfied with juke-box offerings of 
Deep Purple and an occasional Corrina-Corrina Bob Dylan 
wail — all of which, put together, couldn't equal a Sugar 

The football team struggled through a mostly cold season 
while we learned more rules — one of which was, no matter 
where the girl is from, don't tell her you're a freshman. 
New heights were reached in hitch-hiking proficiency and 
the mornings got crisper while the leaves got brighter and 
fell. And freshmen daily grew more adept in the use of 
interlinear trots, the stretching of seven class cuts into more 
and the writing of snow into little blue books. 

John F. Kennedy was shot. The man with restless energy 
for exploring new frontiers, the man with charm, with class, 
limousined into Dallas on a November afternoon, calling it 
a trip into "nut country." 

And a little, pinch-faced warehouse hand with wild, dart- 
ing eyes crawled to a sixth-floor perch and let go with three 
lucky blasts. 

"The President is shot . . . perhaps seriously . . . per- 
haps fatally," the news flash said. And it was fatal. 

The flag in front of Wheeler Hall limped at half-staff 
that Friday, and some of the sparkle of the '60s was gone. 

Such numbers of students left early for the Thanksgiving 
vacation which was to start the following week that school 
officials called off the whole show. We dispersed with the 
rest — coming back for the Boston College football game 
which was supposed to matter in Holy Cross hearts. Morris, 
Marcellinos, Kirmser, Policastro and others squeeked out a 
win on the wind-and-rain-swept Fitton Field. And it did 
matter, according to vocal pandemonium after the game. In 
one Saturday afternoon, Holy Cross produced a successful 
football season. We wondered if the lonely crowd could do 
the same when the time came and went back to classes. 

Life shifted down to first gear while snow began to fall. 
The Christmas banquet on a night appropriately snowy. 
And gears began to spin. That was the night an Irishman 
in the lower part of Wheeler zippoed a fire sprinkler in 
the ceiling and the floods came tumbling down. 

One little fire sprinkler can produce that much water? 
It sure can — and it can go a long way toward upshifting 
the spirits of a freshman class. Wheeler and Beaven residents 
seized the opportunity to unleash the ravages of water war- 
fare against each other and against themselves. Water flew 
— in the liquid and crystallized states. 

The Irishman fell — a disciplinary casualty who hadn't 
yet learned when the rules could be successfully broken — 
but there were no other deaths. And we felt like going 
home for Christmas after that. 

Snow fell and fell, blanching the pine trees and muffling 
the streets and sidewalks. Semester examinations muffled the 
students. "You're never going to learn it if you don't know 
it now. But an all-nighter might help." 

It was ironic that both things came at once — semester 
exam tension and a pile of snow. The two reacted just about 
then to produce a snowball fight of epic proportions. "Raid 
Wheeler," the cry went up. "Raid Beaven," came the reply. 
"The seniors are out in back." And war flared. Battle lines 
were drawn behind Wheeler, and a fierce fight was waged 
for the hill there. The upper classes lured the freshmen 
nearer and nearer the senior dormitories where enemy re- 
inforcements lay waiting. Chaos and a hasty retreat. 

For hours it went on and several pairs of spectacles were 
broken, but no heads. Who won? Depends on who you ask. 
It's generally agreed, however, that a campus cop lost. And 
the battle produced a posted note from the Rev. Charles J. 
Dunn, dean of men. He was against it. 

Another vacation and then the year's longest part through 
the winter and into early spring. The indicence of cabin 
fever was high. George Lawton and a cast of a few eked 
out one or two editions of the Page, the voice of the fresh- 
man class which generally talked orthodox words. Poverty 
struck, Lawton couldn't take it any more and Bruce Clark 
finished the year in the editor's chair. 

Jay McLaughlin was elected class president on a politically 
non-controversial platform and Student Congress represen- 
tatives were chosen, except on Wheeler V which forgot to 
do so. Several tried drama but found that one of the school's 
rules is against drama that's too dramatic. A "freshman 
workshop" play called "Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright" lit a 
bright controversy and closed after one show. 

And most continued to study, with Richard J. Pedersen 
taking an early lead. 

Slowly, slowly, the winter cracked and lost its grip. Tem- 
peratures climbed and days lengthened. Buds peeped on 
branches between Wheeler and Beaven and the sun got 
friendly again. Suddenly, it was warm enough to play ball 
and learn that you can't read a book outside. 

The lonely crown had basically arrived. Those- — in the 
majority — who had made it through the first semester's 
worst felt better this time around. They knew many of the 
rules and knew a little about how you play the angles in 
this game. 

But we still didn't know it all because fifteen of us were 
checking in each weekend with the Dean of Men's office. 
Worcester police the night of the Georgetown basketball 
game had made a little visit to the 9-20 Motel. And, once 
there, they found a little party beginning to explode. 

The under-aged party-goers were in such great numbers 
that a school bus was brought around to take them to Waldo 
Street police headquarters for booking. And the party there 
lasted all night with the cockroaches and winos. The class 

_ - . . 

heard the news, learning that arrest casualties equalled al- 
most a third of the residents on one corridor. And friends 
dug deep for money to post bond. 

Some fifteen of the lonely crowd had learned the rules, 
learned that they could be broken, but not how to break 
them with skill. This was the number that ended up getting 
to know the lady in the D.O. and becoming skilled hearts 
players and softball enthusiasts in the springtime sun. 

Others learned fun could be had more safely if under 
official supervision. Such as that of the Outing Club at the 
Yellow Barn. Two-hundred cases of beer were demolished 
in a short time at a picnic there and everyone felt fine. 

Final exams loomed. Tom Fitzpatrick, on a class-unity 
ticket, was elected president for the next year. Some attended 
Junior Prom amid dubiously incombustible decorations in 
the fieldhouse. 

The exams came and most lived, the record showing the 
group twenty-five weaker at the year's end. By and large, 
the lonely crowd had shown itself fit to survive space-age 
education. So the lonely crowd was allowed to go home for 
the summer, officially recognized as no longer a crowd — 
now the Class of 1967. 

The World's Fair was in New York then and the shaggy 
new Beatles from England were singing "I Want to Hold 
Your Hand" in German — although some thought it lost 
quite a bit in translation. 

In Vietnam, it was the year of escalation. In the United 
States, it was election year. At Holy Cross, it was Murphy's 
year. And all over, it was a year of constructive criticism 
with an occasional resultant change — the second quarter 
of our game. 

Junior James Connor, a skinny 19 years old, may have 
set the pace of constructive criticism early in the year. He 
planted knckles on the schnozzes of two East Berlin border 
guards. Resultant change: normally stiff-lipped border 
guards, somewhat confused, loosen up and let the kid have 
his way. 

It was in a time of such events that our class settled 
into Carlin and Alumni Halls — the home where silverfish 
roam. It was time made not so much of what we did as of 
what we witnessed. 

We moved into those cracked-plaster dormitories in sec- 
tions. There were sections of budding intramural supremacy 
on Carlin I and III. There was a football-bascball-baskctball 

department on Alumni III. There was a department of 
intelligentsia. There was a highlife department on Carlin II 
where none dared walk if he didn't know somebody. 

And, except for a couple of times, we settled back to see 
what might happen. For, at that time, events were in larger 
hands than those of slumping sophomores. Sophomores are 
bigger than freshmen but that, according to the norms, 
doesn't mean much. Sophomores don't have much clout. 
Unless you're Jack Lentz, Mike Cunnion or Charlie Domson. 

James Michael Murphy made some noise from Student 
Congress headquarters in the cafeteria. He wouldn't have 
been there except that the majority felt it was time for 
some noise. People were tired of watching the little stuff 
debated into the ground in Collegiate Affairs Discussion 
Groups and Student Congress meetings. They wanted ac- 
tion, strong action — now. 

Against a nickle rise in the price of donuts, for instance. 
We returned that year to find those carbohydrate concoctions 
with chocolate on top and jelly inside no longer boasted 
their traditional low, low price. A cry of protest arose and 
Murphy had a change to make. 

And, miracles of miracles, it worked. Thousands of flyers 
urging a cafeteria boycott were unnecessary. Thirty-two 
members of a Murphy goon squad didn't have to impose 
the strike. After one round of negotiations, the price of 
donuts reverted to pre-inflationary levels. 

Students liked that sort of thing. People stopped to read 
in The Crusader about a bearded leader with some funny 
lines and an ability to get things done — like lower the price 
of donuts. Things which mattered. 

It made even better reading when the sophomore who 
signed his name "Chas. Domson" began entering his own 
protests. Murphy, in a rash of irreverance, was doing away 
with the entire hallowed body of Roberts' Rules and making 
a farce of dignified meetings in hallowed Student Congress 
chambers. A vote for Domsom was a vote for Parliamentary 
dignity and he was elected representative from Carlin III. 
The Jim and Charlie show was on. 

The issues? Besides donuts, there were Playboy maga- 
zines, truncated Easter vacations and boycotts against retro- 
active failures. Those were days when 1,200 students might 
gather on slushy library steps to comiserate with a guy who 
had griped about his grade and lost. They marched in 
reverent silence to the Dean's office led by a dignified 

Murphy in a black academic gown. And the Boston press 
convered it. Although nothing happened. 

All constructive criticism. The Rev. Martin Luther King 
protested bigotism in Selma, Ala., and received a kick in 
the teeth. Students took a cue from the Beatles' barber and 
then protested a war. Because, although Lyndon Baines John- 
son was elected President over Barry M. Goldwater because 
Goldwater looked and talked a little like a hawk, the war 
grew in size daily. American PT boats were shelled in the 
Gulf of Tonkin. Vietnamese earth was pockmarked by 
bombs from B-52s. And 400,000 American men were to be 
shipped over — as fighters, not advisors. Students protested, 
some constructively. 

It didn't matter that Playboy never made it to the caf, 
that you had to cut classes to get those four days at Easter, 
that the was dragged on and on. Criticism was the vogue 
and we saw it all. 

Mike Cunnion was throwing the football that year. And 
Holy Cross receivers persisted in connecting with his passes. 
Jack Lentz was running when Cunnion wasn't throwing. 
He ran enough to break a season rushing record set by a 
guy named Mel Massucco. Jack Lentz won the O'Melia 
award at a near-miss B.C. game, Dr. Eddie Anderson retired 
after steering 202 victories and Mel Massucco was football 

Holy Cross students that year found that they didn't have 
to study as much theology, philosophy and Latin. Maybe 
some changes were being made. 

Tragedy touched Christmas vacation when Richard Keenan 
was killed in an auto accident. Peter T. Smith, A. Arthur 
Steele and Michael J. Scott took the lonely crowd to the 
reborning Fenwick Theater Company (no longer a drama 
club) — Smith and Steele were acting talent and Scott with 
a driving will to work. They helped with the rebirth. 

Gig Horton smiled at the electorate and was elected class 
president, while the baseball team almost made it to Omaha. 

And life went on as usual in Carlin and Alumni. The 
campus cops dropped another bout when it was learned 
that one of them liked to goof around. He usually ended 
up the goof. It's tough to go to Alumni Hall's third floor 
to punch in at the watchclock, find the lights off and every- 
thing quiet, and suddenly run into a bevy of flaming tennis 
balls. Richard J. Pedersen continued to study while other 
members of the intelligentsia — Cunninghams, McDermotts 

and Bourgeoises — decided Holy Cross just wasn't making 
it in the Ivy League. Most lonely crowders studied off and 
on because it doesn't matter how good the criticism fells 
— the books had to be hit with fair regularity. 

But, for some and therefore for all, that was the year of 
questions. A nonsense sophomore newspaper "The Screamer" 
half-seriously asked some of the questions: "What is our 
legacy? Does it include Vietnam? Racial prejudice? And the 
degenerate values of our society? If it does it's a damm 
good thing we are such foolhardy optimists. How can a 
young man be cynical? Must he first be stamped and 
marked by life before he too can wear his scars of bitter- 

It wasn't as bad as that. But the questions persisted in 
arising. Protests were lodged. "We found out Holy Cross 
wasn't quite what they told us it was," one who lived 
through it recalled. "That was the year the purple died." 

A propoganda filmstrip outlining the glories of purple 
banners floating on high was given a standing ovation in 
the Kimball movie palace and booed out of the joint. And 
St. Thomas Aquinas' Feast Day on March 7 that year went 
largely unnoted. 

Junior year, if there was such a time, was a year of action. 
We moved to the top of the hill and started to be heard. 
For it's one of those Holy Cross norms that hands you 
much of your seniority during your junior year. The Prom. 
The Crusader. The theater company. Cars. Later, the year- 
book and the Student Government. This must be the year 
of accomplishment, if there is one such year in four, the 
norm says. 

It's because there were so many such developments that 
year, that the entire period resolved itself to nine months 
of hustle-bustle get-things-done. With no apparent pattern 
or logic. To try to impose a pattern on that year is to 
inject perfume and lace which didn't exist. So — without 
perfume or lace — these things happened in a year which 
began appropriately with "Woke Up This Mornin' " and 
which didn't see as much "Singin' in the Sunshine" as it 
might have had not all the lights gone out one chilly 
autumn evening in the Great Blackout. 

The Revs. Robert J. Lindsay and John J. Walsh updated 
almost 2,000 years of Christianity in a couple of weeks. 
If Vatican II ever landed at Holy Cross, that was the time. 
Fr. Lindsay wheeled Christianity with Alka-Seltzer and 
came up with a chapel-full of Mass-goers each Sunday night. 
He was against sin and for charity and knew why. Fr. 
Walsh did the same without the Alka-Seltzer. 

Jesuit scholastic Paul Quinlan was in on it, too, with a 
guitar with thought behind it. The spirit that grew out 
of the guitar aided in turning a musty Campion Hall room 
into something less that a nightclub but something more 
than a Kimball Hall movie. 

Tony Silva was chosen Prom chairman in a caucus which 
lasted until 4 a.m. He quickly went into negotiations with 
Babtunde Olatunje but forgot to take a public relations man 

Nervous energy on the parts of Smith, Steele and Scott 
and others opened a sparkling, carpeted Fenwick Theater 
with a performance of "Ring Round the Moon." And it 
looked like Holy Cross could be mildly entertaining if it 
wanted to be. Smith was to be elected president of the 


A large measure of intramural talent names Tunney, 
O'Keefe, Massey, McElaney, Meehan, McCarthy and more 
finally got together all on the same corridor and walked 
all over the Freshman Field and the fieldhouse. Football 
and basketball champions — by a long shot — and Tunney was 
most valuable player twice. 

Mel Massucco bowed onto Fitton Field considerably 
weaker than he would have liked to be. Jack Lentz was 
hobbling on crutches, not running around the end. Mike 
Cunnion had left school. And Kimener, Haley, Gorter and 
others couldn't do it alone, although they tried. Boston 
College won and there was one chance left to do what the 
lonely crowd was supposed to do before leaving. "Lentz 
will be back." Kimener was made captain for the occasion. 

It was the same sort of cast but a different plot for bas- 
ketball. Another new coach, Jack Donohue, was also weaker 
than he would have liked to be. Weaker by 7 feet and 
some inches which were making headlines in California 
where the UCLA freshmen team was beating the varsity 
team which was supposed to be the best in the country. 
So, when Holy Cross journeyed to St. John's, it was an 
easy case of five not being equal to five. 

But somehow the little five squeezed through, around, 
up and over the big five and the Redmen fell. Students 
massed behind the fieldhouse to give the team the kind of 
greeting which had gone out of style at Holy Cross. And 
Ron Texiera was going to be on the team the next year. 

Under the conditions, it was understandable that new 
WCHC station manager N. Thomas Osgood would stay 
awake for seventy-five hours to help boost spirits for the 
Boston College basketball game. Osgood stayed awake and 
stayed awake, playing "These Boots Are Made for Walking" 
an uncountable number of times. And spirits as of old ral- 
lied around the effort. Students contributed to a minor sports 
drive while Osgood stayed awake. Assistant Station Manager 
Roy Hoffman fed him coffee and slapped him on the face 
while Fred Kopacz and Larry Wilson took his pulse. 

But Boston College won. The bubble burst, perpetual 
sports observer J. Christopher Bill reported, but the im- 
portant thing was that the bubble had inflated at all. 

Newspaper magnate Bruce Clark was editor of the Cru- 
sader beginning second semester and during the time fished 
around for a way to make a philosophy journal into a news- 
paper. World news was tried and expansion was tried and, 
after a semester, a full-size newsprint page was tried. Some 
progress was made. 

Gene Sisco later in the year was named editor of the 
yearbook and promised he would break it in half to make 
it twice as good. John Sindoni was chosen Purple Key 
chairman and Kevin Condron was to head the 1843 Club. 

All these things happened to and were done by the 
lonely crowd because junior year is the year that is. This 
particular junior year was more so because of what had 
gone before. Constructive criticisms lodged the year before 
produced some major, if quiet, changes in Holy Cross life. 
Students were given some say in the discipline of their 
peers. John Power was drafted to draft a student life report 
because it was suddenly felt students might know about 
their lives. 

The Student Congress became a Student Government 

under a new constitution. With the change, the issues be- 
came quieter and a little more sophistocated than the price 
of donuts. But the issues remained. 

For the second time, students were allowed to write and 
publish criticisms of their teachers, although Mahogany 
Row questioned whether the right to know and the right 
to privacy might not be clashing. 

All these were changes in a Holy Cross which had started 
as a non-union seminary. And we were on the inside line. 
Other classes had seen changes in Holy Cross. Other classes 
had made changes in Holy Cross. But no class up to then 
had seen so many changes so fast. And if it seemed like 
a situation of hustle-bustle get-things-done it was. 

Guidelines and traditions had crumbled and been bull- 
dozed under. Progress was afoot. And it's one of the trade- 
marks of progress that it comes hustle-bustle doubletime. 
It's only later that men sit back to figure it out and con- 
struct new traditions to go along with the changes. There's 
progress to be made in the meantime. 

We came at a time when many traditions were gone and 
no new ones had stepped into the breach. If football rallies 
lost some spirit and wit, that was the name of the game. 
Because juniors now had cars and students were writing 
academic evaluations of their elders. 

The Prom came that spring and all the world was a stage 
— at least in the vicinity of The Meadows, The Northboro 
Rod and Gun Club and the fieldhouse. Olatunje and Martha 
and the Vandellas were late, but the lonely crowd broke 
almost even on the budget. 

Gerry Mulligan was elected Student Government presi- 
dent for the next year after spending three years in the 
varied ranks of a Bob Shields Congress, a Jim Murphy 
sideshow and a Tom Gallagher business organization. Chas. 
Domson, in a last-ditch show of parliamentary splendor, 
lost by a little and was allowed to see the ballots after 
considerable noise. 

Tom Kelly — the center fielder who once shrunk an op- 
position home run into a ground-rule double by losing the 
ball in a hole under the fence — was an all-American. 

In a year-end example of get-things-done energy, Anthony 
M. Pettolina shed his coat and tie and swam, waded and 
slogged across the oily Blackstone. When a Crusader photo- 
grapher's film broke the first time across, Pettolina got up 
at 8 o'clock the next morning and did it again — in time 
for a Crusader deadline. Some thought the newspaper play 
was a little magnanimous. But then, they never swam 
across the Blackstone. 

A trivia contest pitted the Crusader Humpties against 
the WCHC All Stars. The Humpties fell to an early 80-0 
deficit behind a WCHC team which had as a fourth of its 
forces Fr. Lindsay. The All Stars knew Mae West's bust 
measurement and the Humpties knew the home states of 
the 1966 Miss America contest runner-up. The All Stars 

won when Fr. Lindsay knew the Latin language's dead 
"sox rules." 

The security forces lost another round when a water 
fight erupted between Clark and Hanselman Halls on a 
balmy, spring evening. Water, the world's cheapest weapon, 
was used to great advantage on everybody including the cop. 

And, for some reason that year, there had been enough 
changes in Holy Cross that it felt like a college once in a 
while. Great numbers one weekend went to Lake Quinsiga- 
mond where crew teams were allegedly racing, and watching 
those races makes you thirsty. The spectators came back a 
little bit less thirsty to find a mixer going on the tennis 
courts behind the dormitories. And more thirst was 
quenched. And beer flowed and showed in the setting 
springtime sun. Not a Jesuit was to be seen. 

There were many changes in Holy Cross that year. Pro- 
gress was afoot. We were on the inside line. 

The mini-skirt was often pictured, often discussed and hard- 
ly ever seen in those times. So was LSD. So was Vietnam — 
bigger-than ever, although the change seemed great that 
Vietnam would soon be seen in all its power and lack of 

These were some of the considerations when we moved 
into Superdorm and started running up astronomical tele- 
phone bills because New England Bell had been cagey 
enough to put a phone in every room. 

Most class members moved into the carpeted dormitory 
senior year. But the year was more like living on the tall, 
black iron fence at the foot of Linden Lane. Because, almost 
before you knew it, you had one foot on the outside. Under- 
standably, it could be an uncomfortable experience — strad- 
dling that fence — but that's the way it was most of the year. 

On the outside of the fence was the world we'd always 
heard about. The world contained graduate schools and all 
the inherent evils such as applications, tests and interviews. 
There were medical and law schools. There was work. 
Vietnam was out there, and few there were who didn't have 
to take the most unpopular of American wars into serious 
consideration. The war had a way of putting a crimp in 
almost every plan. The matrimony route lay open too. 

While the outside of the fence had begged a little con- 
sideration in earlier years, it demanded consideration that 

As witness the fact, recall the case of Michael A. Cunnion, 
21, the kid who was throwing the ball sophomore year. 
Mike Cunnion was dead. He had left school after sopho- 
more year and joined the united States Marines. And gone 
to war. He was in a helicopter over Viet-Cong-infested 
territory in Quang Tri province, just below the Demilitar- 
ized Zone Operation Hastings — July 15. And he and twelve 
others died when the helicopter was shot down. 

The world demanded consideration. 

Albert D. "Hop" Riopel died that year too, at age 65. 
But there was a difference in his case. Hop Riopel had 
played many games, had played to win. And he had won 
— plenty. 

Our game, however, was not over yet. There was still a 
world this side of the fence. We still had at least one foot 
in the game, and there were nine months left to play. 
There were commitments to be kept. 

A newspaper had to be printed for another semester — 
twice a week — and a radio station had to keep transmitting, 
although New England Bell had botched up the wires while 
installing the telephones. A Student Government had work 
to do. Although the issues weren't as stirring as chocolate- 
covered donuts and retroactive failures, it was necessary to 
keep Gallagher's constitution in working order. A year- 
book had to be produced. 

These were by and large commitments previously made 
and now being played out. Richard Pedersen was the school's 
first Fenwick scholar and became the school's second Rhodes 
scholar. Because of commitments previously made. His were 
made freshman year when he started rolling up those 4.0s. 

Old commitments, but ones which had to be made good on. 

Perhaps the most universal of commitments was to ulti- 
mate truth in philosophy class. The truth learned was that 
one senior, given a fair amount of tolerance and a little 
bit of luck at playing the angles, can usually make it 
through — just barely. Beyond that, little of the truth can 
be entered into the record. 

Another commitment was kept in Chestnut Hill, Massa- 
chusetts. Jack Lentz was back in the game. Kimener was 
there. Haley was there, and so were Gorter and Kelly. It 
was the lonely crowd's turn to see what could be done in 
the annual go-around and the odds were against the lonely 

Lentz threw and Kimener was there. Lentz threw and 
Haley was there. Lentz ran. And Boston College was on 
top 26-25 and stalling. 

Then Lentz threw again. And Kimener was there — 39 

yards away. The lonely crowd fulfilled a commitment. Which 
it wasn't supposed to do. Jack Lentz had been out for a full 
season but he batted a thousand on the O'Melia award 
while he was in. And 6-3-1 was a magic sequence and the 
best in our four-year-memory. 

For a day and a night and another day, a basketball 
game was waged in the fieldhouse in support of the minor 
sports drive. Marathons seemed to be in style and these 
guys had all the moves. They bobbed. They weaved. They 
stumbled. They limped. And a 28-hour national record was 
set for basketball marathons. 

Howling winds came bearing snow. The winds scraped 
over the rolling hills and down onto Worcester and on. 
The snow fell and was whipped by the wind into rhythmic, 
streamlined drifts. And seniors had to go to Breen's and 
elsewhere to keep warm. 

The spring crept in and winds became breezes of warm 
friendliness. Snow melted and the earth drank revival. Trees 
donned jackets of deep, cool green. Temperatures rose. And 
seniors had to go to Breen's and elsewhere to keep cool. 

The commitments were played out like a ball of string — 
going faster and faster toward the end. Pugilists did their 
stuff at a Yellow Barn happening. One-hundred Days. 
Ninety-nine, ninety-eight, ninety-seven . . . and our time 
was up. 

Commencement is not a beginning. It is an end. On the 
other side of a tall, black iron fence exist demands. De- 
mands capable of making four years on the inside look like 
slow times, simple times, the best of times. Which they 
probably were. When Mike Cunnion was throwing the ball 
and all-nighters were being pulled and the lonely crowd 
and Holy Cross College spent nine months of each of four 
consecutive years together. When the times were played out, 
however, the lonely crowd moved on.

Volume LIX of the Holy Cross Purple Patcher 
has been printed by the offset lithographic process 
on Champion 80 lb. Templar Dull Coated Enamel 
by Foote & Davies of Doraville, Georgia. The 
covers of both volumes and the slip-case were pro- 
vided by the Kingsport Press of Kingsport, Ten- 
nessee. The College seal is embossed in gold metal 
applique. Volume I is set in 10 pt. Garamond 
Italic. The main heads of Volume II are set in 
30 pt. Garamond Bold and the body copy is set 
in 10 pt. Garamond No. 3. 

The senior portraits are by the Warren Kay 
Vantine Studio of Boston, Massachusetts. 

The Biography of the Class of 1967 was written 
by Phil Smith. 

The copy appearing in Volume I was under the 
co-authorship of Chris Kenney and Mike Hart. 

Photos on pages 10 and 14 of Volume I are 
through the courtesy of Mr. Mort Goldfader. 

The picture on page 80 of Volume I is the 
work of Carl Schmitt. 

This edition of the Purple Patcher could not be 
complete without a note of appreciation to Mr. 
Richard Vantine and Mr. Thomas Leonard of Van- 
tine Studios; to Mr. Charles Kolak of the Public 
Relations Department; and especially to Mr. William 
Sloane of Foote and Davies, with whom we have 
had the rare privilege to work. 

The 1967 Purple Patcher has been, we hope, a 
unique attempt in yearbooks for the College of the 
Holy Cross. Volume II has presented the more formal 
aspects of the College: a sampling of faculty and 
administration, organizations, sports, undergraduates, 
and seniors. Volume I has attempted to capture, in 
a hopefully memorable manner, the impact that this 
year and, more generally, our four years at Holy Cross 
have had upon us and all who experience it. 







Tempting and doubly costly beginnings become. 
Spare, elemental, cosmic, some might say. A stub- 
ble of time never revealed venerable full flowing 
growth. Not then, not now, not then . . . Yet it 

Words elbow in to say what just one word 
could say and people are beginning to come in 
round numbers again. Restless and urgent, awk- 
ward and cautious. 

As the first ray, the first bud . . . You've heard 
it all before. 

So mark it on the dust cover, just inside, a 
name, a class, a time . . . a man. 

19 s 

Clogged with unneeded clothing, leathery suitcases bump together intimate 
on the pavement. New names, peremptory instructions, the flash-l 
collection of a family crowded in a tintype frame bustles in the mind. Ex- 
pectant, apprehensive, brave. 

Up ahead Wheeler must be scaled while the curious tree is passed up for 
the answer to questions, the need for new friends. The surge, the discovery 
is better left alone for now. No time to assess value, to calculate results. Too 
early, too soon. 

I wonder whose sheets they borrowed to make those signs? 

Somewhere out there the eternal upper classman resides. At peace with a world which has come to expect him to learn 
the basics and play the rest by ear, he can make the sun shine at night, the all-occasion man, who has mastered the art 
of "how to." Only he can appreciate slipping a savory summer experience into a friendly conversation and then waiting 
for the delicious seconds of casual awe to tick off. Name dropping is beneath him. The proper uses of cologne are a 
matter of taste. Ease apparently with success, success apparently with effort . . . But for few is college eternal.

T^e rules of the game are subject to change but everyone can 
play. Before they reach the tables, everybody antes up. Then 
the dealer passes you your cards. 

When the kibbitzing began someone in the corner said he 
had to "ace this one!' This time jokers are wild. Vive cards; a 
possible straight. A reshuffle. One fellow could have gone for a 
full house but he said it would keep him up all night. 

From the table along the side wall a man with a cigar sent a 
message to someone. He wants to see him in his back office. Too 
late, he's folded. Everyone at the table agreed he really had guts. 

Round white discs shine above us. We need 
only see our stature, ourselves on a frozen 
sea, against their strength. 

From outside, the light we have come to 
accept shows us shadows mocking a sub- 
stance we sometimes cannot see. 

From within, shadows recede before the 
power and peace of a true light. 

To carry light back into the cave-like 
shadows of ourselves and others, we pray. 

Saucy summer turns vagrant and stays on coolly, like a guest who has over- 
stayed her welcome — always about to leave but never quite getting around 
to it. 

Harlequin autumn masquerades. Her smoldering leaves give off an in- 
cense, bring on a fever. We must keep moving lest in pausing we are 
tempted to behold Medusa-winter and are frozen in serenity.

Staccato cacophony . . . go, go, go; precision of a well-timed play; 
percussion of shoulder against arm, cocked wrist, raised eyes, hands extend- 
ed, fingers clutching; the final ten, nine, eight . . . adrenalin enough for all. 
What alchemy is this? What mixture of mud spattered uniforms, seconds 
ticking off on a flashing scoreboard, the inevitable blonde in the front row, 
or a lost Crusader with the incongruous aluminum helmet? 

ep in Fall amid a cascade of shiny umbrellas, 
! beneath a kooky hat defiance stalks. "Hold that 
line," no longer a suggestion, a plea has become a com- 
mand legislated, a solemn ukase. Every move is sur- 
veyed with hawk eyes, calculated with the speedy com- 
putation of a stock broker. When they leave the stands, 
they drop exhausted into each other's arms. Thews was 
the battle, thews the victory. But after . . . 

Kind hearts to their hearts' content spill over in quiet 
ease. Conversation clinks intimately like cocktail glas- 
ses in the next room. Between, among, with . . . I care, 
you care . . . The grammar of wordless motion of mu- 
tual joy, fun, love. 

Paisley pants, Tiffany glass, pop art chinos, thump, 
throb, patter. Throw it all in a shaker of platinum, or 
a dixie cup and let it froth. 


Students are with teachers as they are with cups of coffee. Some will drain them off quickly, others 
will sip and some others never finish theirs. But all began one time. 

Theatrical tears, mesh reality in a collage of myth and 
emotion, tainted pastel half-notes brushed gently aside. 
Talent and expression back to back. Very personal rever- 
ies into the third circle of imagination plucked out of a 
mind. To grope backstage, to squeeze out the last spurt of 
energy, to create, to leave behind some thing of ourselves. 

They say that Alexander wept because he had no more worlds to conquer . 

Late Fall, cold, damp, miserable. 

This is the final game, the weight of tradition hangs like 
an anvil above our heads. The apparent golden triumphs of 
the past season will be struck into fool's gold lest today's 
game balances our account with B. C. 

three and one half minutes of glory into the game sets the 
score at 19-0. The foe is vanquished. 

Somehow the pieces come apart. Suddenly it's 20-19 and . . . 
half time of dampness, cold hot dogs, stale popcorn. Uneasily 
the maddening irony and frustration possesses us all. Then 
25-20. Again the knot unravels. It's 26-25. The empty pit of 
a last chance lost seems to wait before us. 

Finally, m a last tailspin of crashing fortune we level off, we 
soar, we triumph. An effort beyond bewildered hope hidden 
in a scrambling pass. A two step lead, the bomb . . . 32-26. 
We beat B. C. 

More than we expect; never as much as we need. Vail is a dillybag of 
memories; into it philandering summer discards random leftovers; 
from it thieving winter pilfers time. 

Then the Janus-face of time turns like a petrified weather- 
cock at the slap of chapping winds. Beckoned high from 
northern skies by stubby-fingered clouds, irrascible Wag- 
nerian bombast swaggers in. More than we want; never 
too early to stop. 




Of cameo and the fragility of fine bone china, of the 
cracked impersonality of a shattered mirror winter has 
equal possession. Under a subdued and rheumy sun 
bleached damascene drapes sliding hills in ruffled lace 
or pleated wool — scuffed, scattered, caught up in a 
new maelstrom of design. 

Snow ubiquitous, snow a 
Snow of the ode, the carol, the Eskimo; 
Fluffy, floating snow incorrigible, 
Home for the snowman abominable. 
In crevices, crannies and cracks, 
Snow for Snoopy lying in state, 
For huskies, for slalom, 
For falling and slipping. 
Snow to be cursed, blessed, and piled; 
Snow down the back, on the tongue . . . 
irrational, national — snow. 



It is by pure choice, of course, that man 
chooses to spend the greater part of 
winter indoors; indoors where hearts are 
trumps and bull sessions rage. 
Somewhere downtown under blankets of 
grey smoke two glasses chime. On campus 
a hand reaches out from the darkness c 
flicks reality from a soap commercial to a 
horror show. 

Hibernation is part of the instinctual 
drive of animals; it is only by pure 
choice that man decides to spend 
winter indoors, of course . . . 

"Caf" is an abbreviation for 

a) a place to sit and watch other people sitting 
and watching, 

b) a room where you can hear lunch-room 
theologicians, boasting casanovas, budding 
leftists, and "Caf rats" discuss the impor- 
tance of Polynesian Frog Worship, 

c) an enameled chamber designed by the archi- 
tect of Madison Square Garden's washrooms, 

d) all or none or some or any of these. 

Take two parts stained glass. Fold in an equal measure 
of controversy and entertainment; flavor with old movies, 
boetry readings, open discussions to suit taste. Then 
while this is cooling, warm under the personalities of 
Jackie Washington, the Pre-Brothelites, and Bhikkhu 
Vinita; cover with a harlequin canopy, weird murals, 
Psychedelic stage designs, and let it simmer. Yield: 
1200 servings. 

The "well-rounded man" is the examplar of Holy Cross education. 
No one quite knows who or what he is but he finds a partial identity 
in presentations of the Cross and Scroll Society and the Fenwick 
Theater Company. Whether the performance of a string quartet or 
the production of Galileo, the student can choose a relaxing, stimu- 
lating evening to widen his experience and while away the hours. 

Through the evening hours the age-old custom of "cramming" is practiced; the cult of exam taking becomes a 

ritual, for when the sun rises they must meet the challenge. 

A fist grips the stomach; they concoct potions of nicotine and caffeine. Who knows what question lurks? 

How can they meet this test? Puffing, drinking, studying, puffing . . . the night folds into day. 

Up from the desks they move slowly, careful not to bump against anything lest the intricate balance of knowledge 

be upset. 

Before they know it the test's over. The candidates stare blankly, moving over the ground as if in trance. 

The ordeal is ended, the initiation complete. Reward: soft sleep hour after hour after . . . 

Intermission with no decisions . . . 

Ski, swim, tan, scuba, 

Lauderdale, New York, D.C., Bermuda, 

Books for roadmaps, a fair trade. 

Let's go semester break. 

Where to go? What to take . . . 

Toothbrush and extra blades. 

As I was saying, the Miss Worcester . . . 

Butter down 

is really a great place. The hamburgers 

there . . . 

Hey, that's one and a half glasses of 

milk, buddy 

are a little, well you know, greasy, you 

might say, but . . . 

Does anybody want more rolls? 

they're big and taste really . . . 

Rapid, driving, rhythmic; the fast break 
layup, rushing, soaring; a jump shot, 
us p ended in air. 

Straining motion eased alone by the 
dribble, dribble, swish of a foul shot . . . 

The face of the crowd worried, matching 
the anxiety of the players. 

With velocity, sweat, prowess, a sport 
of quick impulse. 


Snow-munching mountain streams drain winter off the edge 
of the world nurturing a lonesome teething daisy. 
Spring unburrows, buds, begins to pulsate, keeping time with 
an uncertain nightlark's monologue. 

Kicking, barking, wailing, bumming, 

Simmering, shimmering to the brim and over, 

Shy, spry, wry, 

Blithely, lithely — the best thing about spring 

Is that it all happens — 

Loudly, proudly.

Re: 100 Days Party 

A reminder is given that the 100 Days Party should not be a source of 
disciplinary difficulty. 


Out to exercise, out to study, out to avoid the 
withdrawal symptoms of late winter. The College 
is inside out. Four walls are jour too many for 
students strung out on the lawns waiting for the 
narcosis of opiate spring.

A weekend hoped for, longed 
after. Precious time for savoring 
minutes of dance, song, picnics; 
for the moments spent lying in 
the grass or hanging from the 
rafters . . . dancing close together. 
Until the last decoration falls, 
until the last note dies. 

Natural grace dressed up in 
formal black tie, sequined 
sheath. Partly theatrical, partly 
fictional, gilding a frame to 
leave a perfect impression in. 
— Bon vivant, savoir-faire, 
homo ridens freely translated. 

Fun ad lib, laugh ridden, dancers in the street, dancers panting under 
the fire of drums. Staccato to a crescendo then a pause. Embers of 
the sun shadow goodbyes murmured through convexed lips. Ending 
a beginning, beginning an e

Mostly it's people. Beer, beach, girls, of 
course a beautiful day. 

But it's the people, in swarms; blanket open- 
ing, tab-top popping, nudging, bumping, 
laughing people. 

People pushing people into Quinsig pond. 
People dismissing the sun with a distracting 
driving beat slapped on an asphalt floor. 
And there were, naturally, the crew races. 


The calm of a spring evening brings out 
the baritone in man. Librettist and com- 
poser anxiously joined word and sound 
to please the most savage beast. Gala 
premiere. Librettos remain, enshrined on 
granite shelves. Savage beasts becalmed. 

A multiple Iwo Jima vignette, pulling instead of pushing, 
a hauser rope instead of a flag, stretched taut between the 
forces of class pride and personal honor, the tug of war. 
More than a contest played within a grassy amphitheater, 
it becomes a competition no one and everyone wins. 
Because they try thevr best. 

\ \ 

But still, it's always there, 
vitation, the chance. Cut the cord, 
leave it all behind, tomorrow's 
another day and whatever it is, it 
can wait. 

Man closes his fist around a life of use- 
less passion. He prays that God, beyond 
his fingertips, open his hand to accept
