f-nr^ HE first morning of every term, with that new-books- 
A. today-gentlemen-better-grades-this-term look in his 
eye, the reverend professor doffed his biretta, looked over the 
section lists and, finding Abraczinsky's name leading all the 
rest, conferred the stole of beadle upon him. This quiet, 
idealistic fellow for four years read more notices and recorded 
more absentees than anyone else in the class. 

A fellow of shining industry, he attained honor grades, 
and we remember him gratefully for replies that soothed 
anxious hearts and empty heads when profs became too 


DIGNITY with a smile — that was Ed Adams, or rather 
one aspect of him. Not stiffness, of course, but a cer- 
tain inherent quaUty which resulted from mixing together 
wisdom about the fitness of things and a fine but lively sense 
of humor. 

However there was much more to him. His apparent 
ease in getting good marks, for example. He represented the 
well-known golden mean in scholastic activities, for, while 
he studied conscientiously, he could never be called a grind. 
For one as alert, genial, companionable, there was a better 
name. Ed was a Great Guy.

POETS, perhaps, are born, not made; but doctors are born 
and made. Andy, whose birth was all a physician's should 
be, worked as a pre-med student with the ineradicable am- 
bition and enthusiasm so characteristic of him. He was gen- 
erous, sympathetic, sincere, amicis amicissimus, courteous 
to those who merited his friendship and deeply sensitive to 
rebuff, yet he possessed amazing optimism and pertinacity 
to overcome this sensitiveness. In study, as in baseball, his 
was a good fight, well fought.

AVE will make the perfect doctor. He has everything 
a genuine medico is pictured as having. Love of the 
profession, a shrewd kindly glint over his spectacles, and a 
dignified addiction to his pipe, — all go to associate Dave's 
personality with the vocation of physician. 

It is easy to remember him, for he was a familiar sight 
in the Waldorf every day at the pre-med free period, lean- 
ing on one of the tables, pipe in hand, listening to or deliver- 
ing words of wisdom, medical or philosophical. If medicine 
ever disappoints him, philosophy awaits.

Why, how do you do!" 

"Hi, Frank!" 

And that's just how it was, ladies and gentlemen. It was 
"Hi, Bill," and then "Hi, Frank." For where you saw Bill 
Baker you could be pretty sure that lurking behind a spec- 
troscope or somewhere was Frank Walsh. Together they 
made up the funniest, brightest pair in the class. Watch for 
an intelligent, really serious chap with a keen eye, and a 
one. Find him? Then you've found Bill Baker. 



if if /T"^ uincy's Bill Cunningham" he was called at times, and 
all because he conducted a sports column for a Granite 
City daily . . . Wrote sports, but was also active in 
them, being especially proficient in track . . . Played a good 
first base position and was our authority on the National 
Pastime . . . having a keen knowledge of inside baseball and 
an amazing memory in regard to averages . . . On top of all 
that an excellent student. 

His manner: earnestness with a smile . . . His alleged 
hobby: ventriloquism.

NEVER, gentle r2ader, argue with anyone concerning the 
definition of a gentleman. Just grab your opponent 
and rush him into an introduction with Bill Ballou. For Bill 
was attractive and good, and one who never knowingly of- 
fended another, — and everything else that definition-makers 
could desire. A sense of dignity clung to him as closely as 
his quiet sense of humor. He was superlatively intelligent. 
And his actions possessed accuracy — gained partly, perhaps, 
through his work in the Rifle Club. Anyway — Question: 
What is a gentleman? Answer: A gentleman is — one who is 
like Bill Ballou.

MiRABiLE DicTu! A coUege man who thought and did it 
interestingly! We are forever grateful that Henry 
never allowed his so-called radicalism to become dulled, and 
yet he was less a radical than an asker, — you know, one of 
those men who ask intelligent, pointed, perhaps challenging 
questions, and then are apt to hear them called foolish or 
radical by the indiscriminate. He had more unsuspected ac- 
complishments than one man could bring to light, — as radio 
critic, music connoisseur, baritone, baseball player, writer, 
— and he possessed a culture that manifested itself by its 
unobtrusive modesty.

,oc was another Falstaff — at least in temperament — un- 
til you knew him. He kidded many an unsuspecting 
soul into thinking him an old roue — when in reality he was 
almost an ascetic. Owner of an enviable intellect, he worked 
well, courageously, without becoming estranged from the 
broader human sympathies. Doc was a wit and we don't 
mean half or nit, and his wit was much enhanced by his 
talent as a raconteur. The brightness and speed of his mind 
we always valued, but when we knew him intimately we 
appreciated its depth as well.

WHEN we tell you that philosophy and bridge, chemis- 
try and bowling, were among Dan's activities, you 
will understand for yourself how rounded his interests were. 
A most earnest defender of Scholasticism, any philosophical 
difficulties presented him were solved for us on the spot. 
Moreover he attained a high standing in Chemistry, but, 
because he was sincere, cheerful, friendly, we liked him just 
the same. 

Going into a bookstore before very long we shall expect 
to find Barton's Neiu Scholasticism, or Barton's Theory of 
Electronietric Titration, or, at any rate. Barton on Bridge.

HINDUSTAN and hullabaloo are probably the two things 
on earth from which John was farthest removed. He 
was quiet, yet, if he was quiet, he was mentally active, be- 
coming not only an excellent student but an interesting, 
pleasantly humorous conversationalist as well. He was sin- 
cere, genial, kind, and his virtues were not unappreciated. 

A member of the class was talking to a new acquaintance, 
a young lady from Lawrence. Did he know, she asked, John 
Bateman. Yes, certainly he did. Then — 

"John," she said, "is my idea of a gentleman."

LARRY was bright and sturdy and smiling. He thought 
Topsfield was more than a Fair place, and, knowing 
him and hearing that he had brothers as attractive and lika- 
ble as himself, we agreed. He played tennis and ate spinach 
(at different times, of course). Won two of the three Sub 
Turri photo contest prizes, and the glory was large if the 
prizes were small. Would listen attentively and then walk 
away, chuckling over something. You felt that he would 
die for a friend, or even loan him five dollars. Health, hap- 
piness and many fives, Larry.

WE thought of Fred as one of those Chemistry students 
who did nothing but spend long hours in the labora- 
tory. That is, we did until he put away his test tubes one 
day, dried his hands, appeared on the tennis courts with his 
racket under his arm, and played a game which sorrowful 
opponents discovered to be slashing. And that social activity 
had a part in his life we discovered also, when we saw him 
at the dances, often, seemingly, the recipient of his class- 
mates' envious glances. Fred's was a life well-balanced, well-

ripVHis husky footballer loved much the field of play. At 
JL any night-before fiesta he'd propose a toast to the grid- 
Iron, and on many a rainy day afterwards we would find 
him acting out another, — "Here's mud in your eye." ("Oh," 
his opponents would ask, "you're not mud at me!") He 
worked quietly, loyally, sturdily, well. Would talk about 
anything you desired, but as long as it was football he'd 
never kick. Liked fish. Nor did he spurn the dance. In all 
things, — his was a good game, and a high score.

ORATOR, debater, literateur, actor, critic, musician and 
student, Joe was perhaps the most versatile member of 
his class. He was four years solo cellist with the Musical 
Clubs and a veteran of the Dramatics Society. He won the 
Marquette medal in Sophomore and the Oratorical Contest 
in Senior. He brilliantly edited the Junior Pic and the Stylus, 
and finished as Salutatorian of his class. But most of all, Joe 
was a sterling friend and those who were intimate with him 
will cherish the fondest memories of Joe . . . and his cello.

IT is the peculiar and high distinction of Art that, while 
he was a sincere and excellent student, he never allowed 
his quest for the intellectual to overshadow his vigorous 
loyalty to his class' functions. Of every enterprise run by 
the class. Art was in the middle, acting as Chairman, as at 
the Fordham Dance, or perhaps assisting with his wise ad- 
vice and unstinted energy. Such spirit and loyalty cannot 
but continue to bring him success. 

The memory of his quiet, congenial fellowship glows for 
those who had the good fortune of being his friends.

IT is a great claim, but when we are speaking about chuck- 
ling John Brougham it is no extravagance to say that he 
was one of the finest and cleverest we have ever known. As 
for sheer intellectual brilliance, how many could win Summa 
cum Laude in Junior, as he did, after losing six weeks in the 
middle of the year? It was a feat which required courage 
and perseverance few could claim. 

But that is only one reason why we say that John Broug- 
was as great a fellow as he was a student. 


IF you are one of those who divide mankind into two 
classes, the sincere and the affected, you will be pleased to 
note that Paul Brown was the epitome of all that was sincere. 
His complete naturalness, of course, precluded his playing 
other parts as well as he did his own, but Paul was proof 
that a good actor on this life-stage is one who plays his own 
part perfectly. 

About his activities there was a steadiness, a strength, a 
conviction. They indicated, we know, a mind capable of 
keeping its equilibrium in any situation.

A SLENDER, curly-haired young man with an active, trig- 
ger-quick mind, and a smile which was half-angelic, 
half -devilish, Bernie Browne left us with memories that will 
always be peculiarly refreshing. Flash — Bernie the Wit, 
jumping up in Journalism . . . Flash — Bernie the Wise Man, 
fooling us in Philosophy . . . Flash — Bernie the Friend, swap-

Socially? An officer of a suburban Boston College club 
was discussing a dance the club had run the night before. 
"Oh," he said, "we had a great gang! Bernie Browne and 
his crowd came up."

.EAR Sirs: The subject of your inquiry, Mr. V. J. Burke, 
'was cur classmate at college. A strong individualist, 
quick on the draw, he was a good scout even as a boy. 
Though a prize essayist, fluent speaker and pronounced anti- 
handshaker, he was completely sincere and unaffected, 
quietly dynamic and versatile. 

Our weekly Heights carried his "Whatcha Column," 
highly original and as subtly satiric as the Neiv Yorker; his 
masterful editorials maintained a standard unsurpassed in 
collegiate journalism. As your correspondent in the Fiji 
Islands he ought to interpret affairs with a keen, well-bal- 
anced mind.

IF an earthquake occurs one of these days, and you see a 
young man sitting on an overturned telegraph-pole, 
quietly flicking some dust ofF his suit, you can be pretty 
sure that it is Ed Burns. For we dare say that nothing — not 
even a late Sub Turri — has ever disturbed the equilibrium 
of Ed's well-balanced mind. 

When we first met him, we perceived that he was a quiet, 
thoughtful young man. With close acquaintance we dis- 
covered his genuine friendliness. But it was another quality 
which especially drew us to Ed. — It was his complete sin-

PURSUING pucks and golf balls, looking through the old 
Eagle Eye of the Heights and pounding out Sub Turri 
sports write-ups (forging, perhaps, a message from the golf 
coach), Larry's career at the College was anything but list- 
(r\\/^ less and unexciting. He was active, dependable, versatile, and 

yet he was fairly quiet, for if his energy was vigorous, it was 
also controlled. Lean, keen and golden, he was a welcome 
figure anywhere. 

It is not difficult to see a smiling Larry treading a 
straight, narrow path to its end, surrounded by countless 
well-wishing friends, lacking nothing but enemies.

TOM CALLAHAN, wc saw right away, was a philosopher. 
We heard his probing questions, and knew. Then rumors 
began trickUng down from the lab about his biology experi- 
ments. So he was also, we said, a biologist. Then he was 
heard playing Rhapsody in Blue. A pianist! And finally, 
some of us found out, he was a brilliant designer of auto- 
mobile parts. Yet, idealist, he prepared himself for a medical 
career. It meant great sacrifice, the giving-up of his other 
interests, but he made it. 

Is there any wonder we thought so much of him? 


MOST of US will remember Ray as the good-looking dele- 
gate to the class. His smile was accorded to us all, and 
his cheery words were a source of welcome to everyone. 
Recall any scene where Ray was present and in the scene a 
feeling of merriment, humor and good fellowship prevailed. 
Ray possessed a keen sense of humor and along with this the 
art of gentlemanliness. His ability as both a scholar and 
athlete was demonstrated in the classroom or on the gridiron, 
where he triumphed notably in his endeavours. Ray will al- 
ways be with us in the memories we carry away from B. C. 


IN Big Ed the class has one of its stauncher members, un- 
obtrusive yet steadfast. CaUfornia-born, haiHng from 
Meriden, Conn., and a graduate of Jamaica Plain schools, 
Ed at once became a utility man on the Freshman track team 
and, as a three year member of the varsity, ran true to his 
yearling promise. Low hurdling was his forte and he boasts 
the track record for the 220-yard flight. Indoors he held 
forth as a dependable relayist. 

Headed for a medical career, Ed undoubtedly will find 
to his professional advantage his inherent oneness of purpose 
coupled with an embracing sense of humor.

has been and got a shakedown to John Carey, New Eng- 
land 300 meter championship winner, President of the 
Musical Clubs, prattling pedagogue and a swelluva fella. He 
ran 50 yards or 300, broad-jumped and then branched out 
into other events. He played trombone, cornet, fiddle, 
compah-horn, and caroled a mean baritone. To say nothing 
of being Vice-President of the Student A. A. Or of his act- 
ing! A success — he knew how to be funny without losing his 
dignity (what dignity he had). Versatile? — Valentino, 
vocalist, volatile, vunderful! 



WHENEVER we Wanted advice, — that is, whenever we 
ivanted advice — which we knew would be salted with 
wisdom and peppered with humor, we sought out John 
Carr. No glib giver of gratuitous counsel, he had to be asked 
for his opinions. But once sought, they were quietly, sen- 
sibly, given. 

With his sincerity, brilliance, industry, it was only right 
that John should head the Ethics Academy. And with his 
honor, his kindness, his generosity, it was inevitable that we 
should now consider his friendship as one of our fondest, our 
most respectable, memories.

As our classmate in college, Mr. Leonard Carr impressed 
us with the calm deliberateness of his speech and the preci- 
sion of his thought. Practical-minded and good-humored, he 
easily carried the honors of President of the Economics Acad- 
emy and star radio debater. Moreover, he possessed a warm, 
subtle, frequently whimsical sense of humor. We know of 
no one better fitted to organize and supervise your new de-

suggests that Mr. Casey, A. B. was not At Bat for 
nothing. Combining sociabihty with captivating humihty, 
good-looking, sincere, warm-hearted, he was always highly

Boston College affairs (as, of course, they are), Dave, just 
because he is Dave, will always be especially welcome. And 
he will be when a long white beard begins tripping him up. 
But now, whatever career may constitute his Goliath, 
Dave has all the pebbles he needs for his sling.

FRED was a scholar, gentle reader. And don't you forget 
it. Some day, when we're trying to scold our grand- 
children into studying, we'll mention the famous Fred Cas- 
sidy and say "Do you think he'd be what he is if he hadn't 
studied?" Fred was a great chemist, and the authority on 
micro-analysis. Yet he was friendly, natural, popular with 
all. In fact the College herself grew so fond of him that 
when he graduated she still couldn't permit him to leave her. 
So, to ensure his staying, she wisely handed him a Chemistry

ONETIME proprietor of the most ancient and awesomely 
elaborate motor-driven chariot at the College, John 
Cavanagh was always deep in science. An apocryphal story 
had it that the real reason Cav drove the chariot was be- 
cause an unscientific friend once contended that "the thing 
wouldn't run." 

More than holding his own in the classics and philosophy, 
Cav was particularly at home in the laboratories, buried be- 
neath a twisting mass of glass tubes, whirring machines and 
belching, bubbling chemicals. 

Finally, a most agreeable companion, he definitely routed 
the theory that the scientist is not a human being.

To followers of football Pete needs no introduction. For 
three years he was the offensive threat of our grid 
eleven, sliding, catapulting, ducking, dodging to bring Bos- 
ton College greater glory. The spark-plug of the team, his 
story is written across the headlines of all the newspapers in 
New England; his manners, his gains, his touchdowns are 
fresh in the memories of all sports-followers hereabouts. 
And besides this, he accomplished a good deal as second base- 
man of the ball team. 

A loyal student, an unassuming gentleman, a legendary 
athlete, Pete was our boast, our own hero.

WE all knew that Lester was a fine student and a genial, 
upright comrade, but how many knew that he ran a 
mink farm? Well, he did, right down on the Newburyport 
Turnpike. One day two of the boys visiting him after a very 
heavy rain found stretched on the ground two handsome 
minks, victims of the storm. Asked what was his loss, Lester 
replied in a matter-of-fact tone, "Oh, about sixty dollars." 
Some day he may juggle millions, but nothing will startle 
us after his philosophic calm at the loss of the minks.

IT is commonly accepted that this is the age of precision. 
Most men link this precision with the development of 
machinery, but not so those who are fortunate enough to 
be well acquainted with John Clancy. For John and pre- 
cision went hand in glove, and mention of the one suggests 
the other. After having associated with him in class, hearing 
him meticulously expound some abstruse thesis or other, this 
linking is inevitable. But the happiest feature of all is this, — 
that he was no more precise than he was interesting, friendly 
and sincere.

,NE who did not know him well, while admiring his 
gentlemanly behavior, might still have judged Ken to 
be the quiet-and-unassuming type of man. For he was quiet. 
And he never used to elbow his way forward into the spot- 
light. Yet a greater injustice could scarcely be done than to 
judge him thus, since he possessed a firmness of purpose, a 
fine strength, which, though all but concealed by his 
modesty, nevertheless shone through.

HAVE you ever heard of a golfer who played against two 
men at the same time? Perhaps you have, but you will 
admit that such cases are few and far between. At any rate 
that is what Chuck Conaty did at Dartmouth one spring,

To all who knew him in the chance acquaintance of class 
routine Jack Connelly was an extremely likeable and 
friendly chap. To those of us who knew him intimately, and 
we are not few, he was like an old rich wine, full-bodied 
and cheering. It is for his generosity, his kindness, and his 
robust humor, that we shall always remember him — and 
these are the important things. If you wish to know more, 
he was always a serious student, a prominent Fultonian, and 
a staunch supporter of the class in its activities.

.EAR Mr. Editor: 

You've asked me to write you about Ed Connolly. 
Well, if you're interested in the scholastic side of things, Ed 
was right there, for he was an honors man all year with a 
special forte for Philosophy and History. Then as Vice- 
President of the Musical Clubs he did much for the admin- 
istration of that group — and I'm told that he supplied 
smooth music for many a smart soiree. 

Boston, he decided, might some day have need of a good 
District Attorney, so he enrolled at the Harvard Law School.

W3 We, readers of the Sub Tnrri, would like to know of the 
college career of Senator James M. Connolly, recently (No- 
vember, 1950) re-elected Senator from Massachusetts . . . 

Boston Collegeman Connolly's past jibes with his notable 
present. Class valedictorian. Attracted first notice by win- 
ning Freshman short story contest and by skillful debating. 
A powerful, dignified, well-reasoning speaker, his activities 
were crowned by presidency of both debating societies. 
Urbane chairman at several gatherings. Active in all publi- 
cations. Impartial observers rated him thus: possessor of one 
of the finest intellects, loftiest aims, firmest wills.

(fif A ssociATE- JUSTICE of the legal division" is a title which 
-Z!a.suits Tom perfectly. For in the Law course he was 
second in activity only to the great chief-justice himself. At 
times, in fact, Tom's words of wit and wisdom created more 
interest and gained more attention than those of his highly 
rated superior! 

Early in his College course the former Peabody High 
captain held forth on the football field. But Tom abandoned 
his athletic ambitions for other pursuits. And his good judg- 
ment was reflected in the high attainments he won as reward 
of his scholastic activities.

FRANK, like the rest of us, had his turn in Father Corri- 
gan's "electric chair," and when he had finished proving 
the thesis, the remark from Father Corrigan was, "Not so 
bad, Connor, not — so — bad." 

Frank was "not so bad" in anything he undertook. Fie 
was an astute philosopher in the real sense of the word. Not 
only that, he was also a profound scholar in Economics, Eng- 
lish, Chemistry, and Law. Along with this, he possessed a 
pleasing personality, and a keen sense of humor. Anyone 
possessing these qualities cannot help being successful.

an able guard, a pleasant companion and a genuine friend.

TALL, slender, sparkling. "How's the arm?" Chris would 
ask on bright spring afternoons, for baseball played the 
biggest part in his athletic career. Then the injury jinx. Un- 
daunted, he took to writing sports for the Heights and later 
became a fine left wing on the new hockey team. Scholasti- 
cally? An outstanding student in the classics. It was said he'd 
rather write Latin composition than English. Cicero, fear- 
ful, clutched his laurels. Socially? How could he fail? He 
didn't fail. 

It is thoughts of fellows like Chris that give memories 
of the College their richness, mellowness, joy.

THE word "alive" jumps out at us when we think of 
John, and hot on its heels is "sparkling", and then, 
"gay". But then, quietly pushing aside the others, comes a 
golden "wise", for John's prime possession was his wisdom. 
He was bright, laughing, but it required little sleuthing for 
us to find out that if his ruddy smile was that of a health- 
food advertisement, his mind was that of a Solomon. 

And whether presiding at the Spanish Academy or at- 
tending elsewhere, he never lost his air of sincerity, his quiet 
fitness, his fine modesty. 





LENGTHY arguments to prove that the world has need 
of men who think much and say httle are unnecessary 
— especially when we recall Tom Cook. Tom was one of 
these people. Yet if you asked him about the banking struc- 
ture or the workings of the stock exchange, his answers were 
scholarly, interesting, clear. 

Scholarly, interesting, clear was Tom himself. A cheerful 
student, he would kick a football around in the afternoon 
and settle down to an evening of study. Result: an analytic, 
well-balanced mind. Result of result: the success which 



VIN was the joy of every professor, — a student who was 
at the same time skeptical and reasonable. If the text- 
book manner of proving a thesis were suspect, Vin would be 
the first to notice this; yet, should an instructor reach the 
same conclusion through better methods, Vin would no less 
readily acknowledge it. He was skeptical, but never stub- 

He was a philosopher, — a gay philosopher. A thoughtful 
frown would give way to a quizzical expression, which in 
turn would make way for a smile that was bright, buoyant, 
— well, see for yourself.

IN a few years, gentle reader, when you drive up Pleasant

statue. It is of a good-looking young man with a firm chin 
and a keen gaze. "Surely," you will say, "I know him — 
Level-headed, quiet — Why, it's John Costello!" 

And he it will be, for J. C.'s strength and dependability 
will not be long undiscovered. A sturdy man among us, we 
soon saw he was a man whose quiet determination and clear 
thinking were such that whatever he set his mind on, he 
would accomplish.

You'll have to travel many miles, stranger, before you 
find anyone else as agreeable, as cheerful, as sturdy, as 
was John Cotter. He was earnest and thoughtful, — a student 
in whose honor Wakefield should have declared an annual

Quick to perceive the humor in a situation, he would decide 
that something had to be done when humor was lacking, — 
and so would supply it.

determination, John is on the way to a bright and bsckoninj

ERE we have the popular captain of our varsity grid- 
iron forces for 1932. Big, bright, brave, Phil added to 
an aggressive, fighting character an ability to listen to rea- 
son; he was both an athletic student and a studious athlete. 
Not content with attaining fame on the football field, 
he became one of the prominent weight men in the East, 
placing in the Intercollegiates on the Pacific Coast in 1932. 
The world won't be long in finding another important place 
for a man who knew how to play the game as Phil did. 



FROM Freshman Latin to Senior Ethics, whenever a har- 
assed teacher became appalled at the extent of ignorance 
in the world — at least as far as his class was concerned — in 
order to regain his faith in mankind, he would call on George 
Crimmins. For George knew the right answers. He was 
mentally keen, but his chief trait was his dependability, since 
he worked not only intelligently, but industriously as well. 
He has become, consequently, a man who can accept re- 
sponsibilities, — and one, therefore, who can, and will, be 
entrusted with power.

UD CRONIN was the striking refutation of the theory that 
Boston College men are cast in a mold. For above all, the 
character of this intriguing young man was that of an in- 
dependent who refused to allow himself to be swayed by the 
foibles of the lesser men about him. Endowed with a keen- 
ness of wit that none dared to match and an envied exuber- 
ance of spirits to boot, those who knew him best loved him 

Ordinary mortals will ever fade into obscurity with Jus-

RAWLiNG drollery incarnate. If you have rubbed shoul- 
ders with Paul Grotty, surely you understand. Paul's 
humor was what we have always conceived Yankee wit to be 
— dry, crisp and crackling, giving the lie to his sober', almost 
saturnine countenance. And his wit was unobtrusive as Paul 
himself, and eqvially welcome. "Wit, appearance, — in fact 
everything about him — was welcome, whether the place was 
the class, locker- or lunch room. Wherever he was known 
he was liked for the modesty and unfailing good humor 
which stamped him as the most companionable of fellows.

PERHAPS Jim Crowley's greatest bid for fame lies in the 
fact that he was the leader of the first baseball team to 
capture the traditional series from Holy Cross since the 
spring of 1927. But we shall always look upon Jim as a 
fellow who, in spite of the honors that came to him, never 
forgot his old friends while making new, a fellow who al- 
ways kept his air of old comradeship for everyone. 

He was warm-hearted, upright, sympathetic, and both 
earnest and debonair. He will always be one of the best-liked 
men of '33. 



UNIOR darling, if you'll keep still a minute, Daddy'U show 
you some more pictures. Now this is Jim CuUinan. Yes, 
that's right, — -he makes you feel happy just by looking at 
his picture. Daddy remembers him at the Fulton defending 
the appointment of the judiciary, — you'll understand what 
that means when you get to be a big boy and join the Fulton 
yourself — his genial grin supplanted by an expression of 
bright earnestness. At the same time we used to listen to his 
wise, well-reasoned arguments and remember his grin. The 
two together worked wonders. They always will.

culties and sorrows, yet he always emerged, as a high-mmded 
man should emerge, moved but serene. 

Tall, quiet, polite, — whether at Physics Lab or Philo-

tempered with a modesty as unfeigned as his friendship was

overworked it. 

A bright student and a hard-working one, Joe still real-

AT the risk of seeming sentimental and extravagant and 
all that, we say that one word seems especially apt for 
Frank, — golden. And we're not thinking only about his hair. 
His nature was golden. His smile was golden. (No, Junior, 
that does not mean that he had any gold teeth.) His friend- 
ship was golden. 

From Freshman through Senior he worked industriously 
and intelligently. But happily. Each time you met him you 
felt that he was actively, wisely, enjoying himself, and that 
his pleasure was contagious. And you found him unselfish, 
frank and — yes — golden.

often happens that trackmen alone know of the patience

and all of us admired his mental skill. He was a persevering

our love he has stolen away.

WE found in John a convincing argument that there is 
no more valuable asset than tactfulness. Innate good 
judgment with a keen, warm sympathy for other minds and 
other hearts reflected the many-sided strength of his char- 

His was a scholarship that was precise and extensive, a 
friendship that must be enduring as it was deep and noble. 
John always represented the finer human qualities that we'd 
like to possess ourselves. He was a model by whom we could 
pattern our actions. We grew rich with his splendid ex- 





DAN never had to look far for friends. And why? Be- 
cause he was a true friend himself. Dividing his time 
between studies, social activities and his duties at the College 
Library, Dan, apparently without effort, handled them all 
with remarkable success. But interwoven with all his activi- 
ties was the thread of his bright companionship. 

A fine student, whose favorite study was history, he un- 
expectedly became an actor, and we dare say his favorite 
spectacle was Dick Whittiugtou. Firm and bright, he was 
certainly a gem among men. But no diamond in the rough, 
Dan's facets were all well polished.

OHN was a connoisseur, and one of many tastes. He was 
an infallibly good judge of humor, for one thing. He was 
"^ amazingly well-informed on everything remotely con- 
nected with dance music, for another. And he showed ex- 
cellent taste in the friends he made, for a third. Besides, he 
always knew just how far a good thing might be carried. For 
example, his friends have seen him in burning indignation be- 
cause a pointless disturbance in the class hindered a profes- 
sor in his work. All of which proves that John had a rare 
and excellent sense of values.

SOME of US knew Joe, or "Ginsberg," as a slashing full- 
back in pre-B.C. days. But at the Heights he became a 
wit of almost legendary proportions, a brilliant, vivacious 
humorist, and something of an actor as well. His interpreta- 
tion of a well known society person hiking from Boston to 
Providence was nothing short of uproarious. And it isn't so 
hard to recall a certain Junior philosophy class in which the 
point at issue was whether Joe's new whiffle was something 
positive or merely the lack of a due perfection and hence 
an evil.

RESPECTABLE if Strange was the beginning of Walter's 
college career, since he had a prominent role in the 
Freshman Greek play. One of the finest actors in the spec- 
tacle, and certainly the most amazing in the photograph of 
the cast (cf. first snapshot page), he was blessed with the 
ability to unite dissimiliar virtues. Secretly wedded to his 
smiling, somewhat debonair, manner was a serious, wise de- 
termination. He worked hard. He chose and conquered diffi- 
cult courses. He possessed both the tang of youth and the 
richness of maturity. And may this union ever produce joy, 
wisdom, abundance. 


IT is difficult to say just how much of the luster of John's 
personality was natural and how much was acquired by 
polishing the diamond. But it is easy to say without exag- 
geration that all of his personality was summed up in his 
general agreeableness. 

Having a level head and a freedom from unwarranted 
enthusiasm, he naturally appeared at times to be pessimistic. 
But gazing into the old Sub Tnrri crystal, we see nothing 
but a fair, glowing future shaping itself for him. For you, 
may only optimistic visions materialize, John.

GEORGE was a member of the famous Sophomore H, and 
to those who were members of that class with him, this 
reminder alone conveys the idea that he was a fine fellow. 
Although he attained a fine scholastic standing, George was 
of the type to whom learning comes easily, and so he had 
time to partake of the fine spirit of fellowship existing be- 
neath the towers. 

In his quiet way George, the pride of Somerville, reached 
every goal that he sought. And this, we feel sure, is merely 
a foretaste of the outcome of his future undertakings. Good

You can't sit beside a fellow in class for two years and 
not be a pretty good judge of his character. The writer, 
after such association with Phil, would be willing to wager 
that the dourest could not be exposed to Dooley's society for 
half that time and not entertain toward him feelings of ad- 
miration and affection; affection for his kindness, his bright 
savoir faire, admiration for that "something plus" called per- 
sonality possessed only by the favored of Fate. Many a dull

ston Street coffee-house and observed he looked even better 
than when at the College, slightly like O. O. Mclntyre's lost 
youth. In discourse he is, methinks, one of the most rational 
men that ever I heard speak, and a person of generosity and 
excellent nature withal. Realized again he is a mature, de- 
pendable, quiet man who hath the will-power to attain his 
farthest desires. Did discuss the President's currency policies,

Man's Man" seems a title made-to-order for Pat. A 
clear eye, a quick wit, a ready smile and a perpetual will- 
ingness to do a good turn were among those characteristics 
which drew to him his hosts of friends. 

He was neat, dependable, forward-looking, and one of 
our pleasant experiences at the College was to see Pat grow 
from a fine, smiling youth to a fine, mature man. Without 
losing his freshness and good humor he added to his charac- 
ter an earnestness of purpose. Of the youth we have bright 
memories, of the man, bright expectations.

Pre-med is premeditated: no sympathy given or ex- 
pected. But a guy's got to get away from all that once in a

Unlike some of the brethren, Duffy didn't look at life

These two simple facts indicate Bill's character, for they 
show that he was not only a man of enviable intellect but 
one of excellent will-power as well. Quiet, loyal, unobtru- 
sive, he was liked by all and, apparently, was dismayed by 
nothing. And if he shows in his chosen field the perseverance 
he did at the College, the name of the next head of the

seemed able to obtain without effort all the joy which could

never vanity, joy which we knew to be good and permanent. 
Like everything else about Frank, it was real.

Perhaps it was this spirit of unselfishness which prompt-

his other activities. As a Freshman and Sophomore, he had 
belonged to the Latin and Greek Academies, and afterwards 
he was as willing to discuss an ode of Horace as the anatomy

and classics which made Jack a man of true culture and

THERE is a quietness which is the property of well-regu- 
lated activity. And that was the quietness of Walter 
Fahey. He was quiet, but he was as far removed from the 
usual quiet-and-unassuming year-book hero as from the 
publicity-seeking boaster. We perceived him attainmg scho- 
lastic honors, making loyal friendships — all with the ease of 
a wise gentleman — and all this time we were aware of his 
ceaseless mental activity. He possessed industry, modesty, 
friendliness. To say that he should eventually attain success 
is like saying that new-born ducklings should eventually be

yet he shunned the publicity that his labors deserved.

ALTHOUGH Frank came from West Concord, he was one 
of the few who could claim to be talented students of 
Greek, — and be believed. In winter his daily trip to Chestnut 
Hill had to be made largely, of course, by dog-sled. Still he 
appeared every morning with his work done. "I just say 
'Mush huskies!' and then I can study the rest of the way," 
he once confided. 

But Greek was only one of his interests and in his other 
courses he was no less keen a student. Moreover, he was a 
frank, modest, genial, — hence enjoyable, — friend.

and very rightly, that he deserved our highest esteem. Quiet, 
studious, reserved, he was one of the most likable fellows 
with whom we could meet and chat. 

Very good-looking, — he was voted the best-looking man 
in the class — his main interests were intellectual, not social. 
If we wanted a Physics formula or an Ethics thesis explained, 
we thought of him. For he was as helpful as he was gifted.

|BSERVE closely. Take this photograph, frame it, and 
hang it right over the piano. For here at last is the real 
Fred, — the determined young man who was hiding all those 
years behind that ruddy smile. The camera never lies, ladies 
and gentlemen, — although Fred is better looking than this 
picture — and it judges well! 

We all knew Fred of the bright smile and vibrant eyes. 
But only those who knew him well knew the high intelli- 
gence, the firmness and underlying seriousness that made up 
the real Fred Gorman.

JOHN had many claims to fame, not the least of which 
was his participation in the annual Spring descent (no 
double-meaning intended) of our famous golf team. He 
cajoled, bullied, pleaded, but even a mechanic of his skill 
couldn't persuade the venerable Chevrolet to go farther than 
Westboro on the return trip. Well, — it was fate! 

John was an intelligent, quiet, courteous young man who 
in his easy-going manner made innumerable friends. His life 
is governable — if the Chevrolet was not — and we know that 
with horns tooting he will ride it to his goal.

Tim: He's entered Harvard Med, you know. 

Jim: The gang says he was a wow in Bug.

Father McHugh read his marks they sounded like tempera-

Tim: A good guy, if there ever was one. 


GIFTED with a keen, analytic mind, we favored Bob to 
be one of the original members of President Roosevelt's 
Brain Trust; however he declined the task to concentrate 
upon his chosen profession of Pedagogy. 

Rarely indeed was there as prolific a mind as his of affairs 
National, Diplomatic, State and Municipal. To know him 
was like reading Washington Merry-Go-Konnd. He was a 
profound reader and critic superb, a scholar, gentleman, 
good-fellow and athlete. So long Bob, we shall always miss 
you and your Round Table discussions in History.

TERRY was that tall, breezy, apple-cheeked young man 
who was graduated with honors. To see him striding 
through the lunch room with his firm smile and laughing 
eyes you would have sworn that he hadn't the slightest idea 
what the word "serious" meant, but observing him in class, 
you would have known better. For Terry realized the value 
of scholastic standing and sought it — and obtained it. 

He made, of course, numerous friends. And if what 
we've been told about birds of a feather is true, those flock- 
ing around Terry must have been pretty fine ones.

LONG was this chap a f amihar figure to the crowd at the

in a manner worthy of any musical organization. In fact, 
it was rumored that the late March King actually made over- 
tures to Will (financial, not musical) but the lure of Psych 
and Ethics proved the stronger, and the B. C. band and glee 
club the winner. 

He was pleasant, sincere, agreeable. And we couldn't

ROBERT Hanlon Came to us already well known in the 
scholastic and debating circles of secondary schools. He 
distinguished himself in the Marquette for a year or more 
and was the Freshman Representative on the team to debate 
against Fordham. 

From the press of other circumstances he was forced to 
forego participation in forensic activities in later years. Yet, 
although engaged in activity outside college, he maintained 
an especially high scholastic rank. He was a shining example 
of those sincere, industrious students who, though perhaps 
unknown to some, are a lasting support to the College.

A MAN with convictions, with properly controlled en- 
thusiasms and general sociability must offer the elements 
of trustworthy leadership. With such qualities it was quite 
understandable that Jack Hayes should become an acknowl- 
edged success in planning and conducting many of our col- 
legiate social and academic activities. 

The peak of his executive career at the college certainly 
occurred when he was appointed Chairman of Commence- 
ment Week. And no one was surprised, when it was all over, 
to realize that it had all been conducted capably, smoothly, 
without turmoil, without a hitch.

WHEN Duty whispers low "Thou must," then ready, 
agreeable Joe Henry is just the youth to reply "Well, 
okay." In fact, we can easily picture him quizzically looking 
Duty in the face for a minute just to make sure that she can 
be trusted, then quietly setting out to climb the Matterhorn 
or swim to Boston Light or do anything else the insistent 
lady demanded. Whatever was asked of Joe, he did, and 
without excitement. Quiet, thoughtful, he looked at the 
world from under somewhat smiling brows, and performed 
his work — excellently.

THE ballots were counted. Silence for the announcement. 
And then the declaration that Walter was elected Presi- 
dent of the Lynn Club. Justice ruled firmly that day, — for 
even if Walter was a modest young man who ever belittled 
his own abilities, his townsmen knew better than to take 
him at his word when speaking of himself. They knew him 
as a man of judgment, activity, and wisdom. Hence the elec- 

In teaching, Walter, modesty, if not excessive, will be 
quickly admired. And when the world knows you as we 
know you, your success is at hand. 



ILL was chosen our class President in Senior, and well he 
should have been. With his rare ability as a leader, he 
directed the class through a most successful year. He was a 
brilliant orator and debator and a ranking student of the 
class. He was a fine athlete, starring in baseball and hockey, 
a unanimous choice as Captain of the latter sport, which, 
through his efforts was returned to the college for the first 
time in five years. 

Your ability, determination and happy smile will, we 
know, carry you far in your chosen profession of Law.

LIKENESSES of Lincoln, Roosevelt I, Taft, Hoover, should 
illumine this page, for long, smiling Paul Hoppe was, at 
least for purposes of Fulton debate, a bright Republican party 
leader. A bright everything, his enthusiasm centered around 
debating and the result was that his "Mister Chairman" was 
always the beginning of one of the sanest, deepest, and often 
funniest, talks of the day. 

Fortified by his intelligence stood his strong, high will. 
From both came his Hkeable personality. And now, ermined 
or habited, walking through Cornhill or alien corn, he has 
our sincerest good wishes.

No, little children, he was not a visiting French noble- 
man, despite that fetching labial adornment. Nor was 
he even a Balkan crown prince living among us incognito. 
Tom was one of us, and an outstanding and singularly dis- 
tinctive one of us at that. 

He was intelligent, active, warm-hearted, but he cannot 
be catalogued because his interests were so many and color- 
ful. If you saw Tom and Sully towering over the rest of us 
while striding up from Lake Street, you won't easily forget 
them. A bright future is M'sieur Horan's, who possessed 
what it takes to make success.

IF you should see a young man whose htheness and hmber- 
ness mark an athlete, yet whose wisdom distinguishes a 
serious student, don't be puzzled. For he will be both, and 
he will be the Ideal College Alumnus. And if he should also 
be an upright and pleasing young man, understand. — He 
will be a gentleman. But if you should also hear people prais- 
ing his appearance, his lively strength of will, his good taste 
(in printing Commencement booklets, for example), — and 
you perceive that they speak justly, — rejoice. For he will be

Tom's a fellow you'd rather talk to, than about . . . 
Well, first it was: "Hi, Tom, how're the wolves and 
wildcats and coyotes?" . . . For he came from Woburn and 
did he have to take it . . . Then: "Hi, Tom, have you heard 
the latest Casa Loma?" . . . Sure he had . . . Finally it was: 
"Hi, Tom, is it true you're in Pre-Med?" . . . What, our 
Tom boiling and bubbling, on the make for precipitates! 



OB was an outstanding member of our class in many 
'ways. Not only did he captain the fastest track team in 
years, which he aided by his brilliant performances, but he 
was also among the first in scholastic pursuits. And he was 
class treasurer and an expert on the rifle team. 

Considering that he majored in chemistry, winning a 
fellowship, and spent much of his time in the laboratories, 
his success was all the more noteworthy. His high qualities, 
together with a very genial nature, towered Bob to the pin- 
nacle of popularity. 


THIS is the man who attempted to sell his classmates the 
idea of taking out insurance on the youngest member 
of the class, naming the college as beneficiary. It wasn't his 
fault that the suggestion was defeated, for no plans would 
the class have heard more willingly than John Kaveny's. 
John Kaveny possessed prestige. 

Remember the famous Freshman activity period when 
he harangued on parliamentary procedure? It was a fine 
start toward a promising political career, and in a few years 
we hope to see the above features decorating many an im- 
portant campaign poster.

IF you didn't know Ken Kelley, you were a deaf, blind 
man who was never within three hundred miles of Boston 
College anyway. Active and successful Business Manager of 
the Heights (a challenging job alone), resourceful Manager 
of Fencing, and finally brilliant President of the Business 
Club — to say nothing about his incidental excursions into 
dramatics, track, socials, debating, everything — Ken was 
keen, genial, gay and popular. 

The famous Ken Kelley drawl alone was a thing of de- 
light. It was warm and everywhere. And — 

What would Tuesday afternoon have been without Ken's 
glowing "Up the Business Club!"

QUIETLY, wisely, pleasantly, Ed Kennedy pursued his way 
through the four years of college on the way to a prom- 
ising business career. Known intimately by some, he 
was an infallible social barometer for all. 

Whether you looked in at the swanky afifairs of the 
famous Chelseans, or were merely trying to crash the Louis 
Quatorze, if you saw Ed inside, it was de rigeur that those 
in the know were there also. 

A good student, a fair golfer, a bit of a lion — what more 
can you ask of a business-man? 


THROUGH Bernard Kiernan there noiselessly flowed a 
steady stream of energy which found its outlet in a de- 
termined apphcation to study. Result: he was the man we 
consulted before an examination for last-minute bits of in- 
formation, and the one we tracked down afterwards to see 
if our answers were right. But he was more than a student. 
He was President of the Boston College Club of Lawrence, 
and if such an office didn't test his good nature and all- 
round ability, nothing will. 

He was courageous and wise. Consequently the success 
he attains will, we know, be genuine.

SOMEHOW or other Walter always looked as if he had 
just stepped out of a shower-bath. And this we think is 
significant, for if he seemed physically bright and crisp, 
mentally he was the same. A fine player, he was one of the 
men who made unsung sacrifices to reinstate hockey as a 
minor sport, yet he was equally alert at the Business and 
Ethics Academies. Tall, laughing, possessing the poise of 
simplicity, from dark head (we won't embarrass him by 
calling it handsome) to flashing feet he seemed completely 
fit. Quietly, genuinely, — he sparkled. 



THAT being Ernest is pretty important anyone can tes- 
tify, but in Woburn, it seems, it is no less important to 
be Kimball, for there you can read a street-sign which says, 
plain as day, "Kimball Road." Now when you get someone 
whose name is both Ernest and Kimball, well, his impor- 
tance must be prodigious. 

It is. Robust, keen, humorous, Ernie was one of our 
cleverest diflficulty-finders in class; and if, perhaps, his eyes 
twinkled, this did not make his questioning any less sincere. 
Friendly, earnest Ernest Kimball has left us only the warm- 
est of memories. 



ZESTFUL. Everywhere we used to see Joe we admired 
the keen enjoyment with which he did things. His zest 
on the cinder path he carried into the classroom, and it 
probably accounted for his success in both places. 

In his Senior year a genuine tragedy occurred when a 
serious injury to his leg made track competition that season 
impossible. He had done so well other years it was impossible 
to tell what heights he might have reached. But he never 
grumbled. Instead, he acted as he had before, — with cour- 
age, with wisdom, with zest.

A SLIGHT disturbance at the rear of the class. Then quiet. 
Finally a muffled baritone: "Kivlan did it . . . Kivlan 
did it . . . Throw Kivlan out!" 

How often did we realize the tribute implicit in this 
phrase? — for after all it was the very fact that John was 
such a fine, sincere student that made it seem amusing. More- 
over, it implied that blessed ability to "take it." And now, 
whenever we learn that some member of the class has at- 
tained great honor, we shall expect to hear someone pro- 
claiming, this time truthfully, "Kivlan did it . . . Kivlan did

AL Landrigan worked and worked hard, — at the Library, 
on the Heights, in the Fulton — yet received but scant 
general recognition. And we believe that if he had it to do 
over again, he wouldn't change his course in the least. For, 
if his work was done outside the cheering glow of the spot- 
light, he had the grateful admiration of those behind the 
scenes. Besides, he had the satisfaction of work well done. 

So hats off to Al Landrigan. Truly Boston College has 
never turned forth a more worthy product, nor a more 
loyal and staunch supporter.

To the rule that nothing but the best can be expected 
from the University City John was no exception. He 
was a fine student, yet in spite of this the professors always 
had their eyes on him for, as a member of the rear guard in 
the Psych class, he was a source of some hidden concern to all. 
John was Campus Chairman of a fine Commencement 
Week and in this capacity he was a fine aide and assistant to 
the Prexy. Shy and diffident in manner, he possessed a hid- 
den determination that always accomplished its aim. 


DUSK creeps over the Tower Building, spreading a chill 
murkiness across Alumni Field. Car wheels complain, 
bitterly, and men and women unfold coat collars before they 
desert Lake Street. The crunch, crunch, crunch of spikes 
against cinders sifts through the dusk of Alumni Field. Lang. 

Dogged, determined, his ability to plan something and 
then carry it out unwaveringly was remarkable. His devo- 
tion to training was a lesson to all athletes: it brought re- 
sults. So did his devotion to books. And he served both with 
warmth and humor. 

A good friend, too. 


BETWEEN classes when we were wont to congregate in 
the rotunda, one could pretty accurately forecast just 
who of the class would be found in one group and who in 
another. That is, we must add, with the exception of Frank 
Lawlor. Frank was ever to be found in unexpected places 
and in different company, because, it seemed, he was ac- 
quainted with everyone. 

We all felt his genuine naturalness, we were all pleased at 
his presence, and, somehow, when we rejoiced in his friend- 
ship, we almost felt that our friends were as legion as his. 



^^rvr^HE Demon Manager" was a cognomen well applied to 
A. George, but he might have been called "The Demon 
Everything." For he was not only our affable, energetic 
Manager of Track but "Cinder Dust" columnist for the 
Heights, president of a New England intercollegiate athletic 
association and Photographic Editor of the Sub Tiirri besides. 
And everything he did he handled with deftness and preci- 
sion. Small wonder, then, he was elected honorary member 
of the Student Council. 

He was industrious, sturdy, dependable and always vigor- 
ously alive. He will lead a lofty life with warm cheer.

THE 9:30 bell rings and class begins. Ten minutes pass 
when a door is softly opened in the rear of the class- 
room. No one is seen entering, but there is a slight shuffling 
sound along the floor. Whispers of "Throw him out, Harry; 
he's late again!" fill the class room, and the professor looks 
down to seek the disturber. 

Finally, as an innocent in the front row is being ejected, 
Red Lennon, under cover of the excitement, climbs into his 
seat. For the fifteenth time. Red has made class on his hands 
and knees.

THERE are some people who stand out because above all 
other qualities they possess a certain zest for living. 
From wavy head to nimble foot C. Joseph radiated this en- 
viable feeling. 

Not content with being the source of the famous phrase, 
"You'd better Licata you'll be late," Joe determined to be 
at the same time a man-about-town and a student. As both 
he succeeded. In fact, he became secretary of his local Bos- 
ton College club, than which, when Joe was secretary, there 
was no higher social position. And, student or secretary, he 
was always sincere, industrious — and zestful.

DAN was one quite apart from the ordinary student. 
Personality, they say, is half the battle on any field, and, 
accordingly, all Dan's battles were half won before he be- 
gan them. Trouble, seemingly, never bothered him; exam 
days were as sunny as any others. Still, he was no bookworm, 
but rather a capable, energetic young man with a deter- 
mined smile and a belief in Newman's media via. 

Wherever you found him, he was the center of a lively 
group discussing anything from Psych to Cicero, football 
to Physics (in which, incidentally, he was the best of pos- 
sible lab partners). Serious and jovial, each at the proper 
time, wise, ever so likeable, was Dan.

IF we were just an ordinary Sub Tiirri, we should speak of 
Tom's sunny disposition. But since we are, of course, any- 
thing but an ordinary Sub Tiirri, we shall speak of his radi- 
ant personality. For, after all, Tom's nature was so sunny, 
or radiant, or call it what you will, that we can't help men- 
tioning it. He possessed joviality and a quickness to perceive 
humor, and yet there was a firmness underneath these quali- 

Together with his — well — solar disposition, his sincerity 
was outstanding. Instantly we realized that whatever Tom 
told us, he meant.

WHENEVER you find a man with a warm heart and a 
bright humor you find a man who glows. Fred's heart 
was of the right temperature and his humor of the proper 
disposition, and the result was that — like an oil burner — he 
glowed quietly, steadily, warmly. 

He was a sincere student, interested in comparing pres- 
ent day findings in physics with tenets of scholastic philos- 
ophy — witness his lecture on the Quantum Theory and free- 
will — and this earnestness gave him a richness. To you, Fred, 
and your glow, and your sincerity, and that drawling smile, 
— good luck!

PROBABLY everyone in college who doesn't make his name 
in athletics always intends to go out for track or base- 
ball just for the exercise or the fun of it. We only know one 
fellow in the class who was an exceptional student and who 
carried out this familiar theme. That was John McCarthy. 
He was a pleasant companion, and a student whose 
grades looked like a news chart of a Boston hot spell or the 
temperature chart of a fever patient. We nominate John for 
research man in anything under the sun — or in it.

ably never realized it) we consistently admired. 

Wise, natural, spontaneous, candid, Mac was an ideal 
friend. He was a friend, student, gentleman, — brightener of 
many dark days, — and leading conservative of the class.

AFTER a year or so of collegiate wanderings Tom Mc- 
Carthy came home to Boston College. Somehow we 
think that it was in the fates that he should have come here 
and blazed his glorious trail in pre-medical work which led 
to the coveted Harvard appointment and to the quite uni- 
versal opinion that of all of us he was the most likely to 

He had a truly fine mind, an excellent personality, and 
yet a pleasantness and a common touch that ensure for him 
a lasting place in the memory of us all.

As Advertising Manager of the Sub Tnrri, Bill more than 
justified the confidence which appointed him to that 
position. The impossibihty of bi-location didn't seem to hold 
in Bill's case, at least where work on the Sub Turri was to be 
done. His job was anything but an enviable one, but the 
manner in which he carried out his task deserves the highest 
possible praise. 

Bill's crackling humor and telling wit, his much-tried 
but never-failing patience and good nature, made for him 
legions of lasting friends, and it is the hope of all of us who 
have known him that we may always be counted among

JLwas a rather big undertaking, but Ed was just the man 
for undertaking these seemingly Herculean labors. For men- 
tally Ed was something of a Hercules himself. 

He was, moreover, a man of genuine culture, familiar 
with more than the outside walls of Symphony Hall, the 
Opera House, the museums. And he delighted in singing 
Irish songs. (Have you forgotten the Christmas entertain- 
ment in Fr. Low's class?) 

But above all, Ed was kind, helpful, sympathetic, gentle- 
manly. That he was one of us makes us grateful and proud.

EASE in uniting work and mirth seemed an especial talent 
of pre-meds, and it is no exaggeration to say that in 
accomplishing dozens of duties brilliantly and in having a 
whale of a time doing them, Gene was a perfect genius. 

His self- composure he nearly lost on only one occasion, 
and that was when he was detected in a History class with 
a ball of freshly fallen snow in his hand. His efforts to rid 
himself of the incriminating evidence were uproarious, but 
the fact remains that he did, and with a good bit of dignity

THOSE members of the class who commuted daily from 
the North and South Shore districts are unanimous in 
extending to Walter a sincere note of thanks. For it was 
none other than he who, in a moment of desperation, of- 
fered as an excuse for tardiness the delay caused by an open 
drawbridge, location unknown. 

Walter received the position of Manager of Football, an 
office he certainly deserved and one whose obligations he ad- 
mirably fulfilled. Managing football, studying, guiding his 
local Boston College club, — even sleeping in class — he ac- 
complished, characteristically, with grace and finesse.

mer two or three voices when a Tall Figure points ques- 
tioningly at an empty chair in Senior B lecture room. "Mc- 
Donald or McDonnf//?" — the Tall Figure's benevolent bari- 
tone tries to feign disgust for his informers. Then, turning 
around, he perceives the deep smile of the latter. All within 
range of sight unconsciously smile in return. Hearts expand. 
All's right with the world. 

For Larry was bright and cheerful and friendly, a per- 
fect companion who, somehow, seemed gallant. His traits 
used to gleam through that smile of his. And that smile was 
— gladdening.

VIGOR. In work or play Joe could be depended upon to 
act according to the best of his ability. And because his 
abiUty was great, his actions were — well, figure it out for 
yourself. An excellent student, he entered some of the most 
difficult courses and emerged in a blaze of glory; yet hi: 
social repute was such that he was chosen chairman of one 
of the Junior Week dances. Generous, riant, capable, his 
choice could not but be a popular one. 

His secret of success? This: — He followed the maxim, 
"Do what you're doing." 


IT used to be the delight of our Marquette days back in 
Sophomore to hear Messrs. McGivern and Tansey in ac- 
tion on opposite sides of some moot point. In fact Dick's 
unblushing frankness when asked to give an opinion on some- 
thing or somebody, was a thing to be remembered. 

But pre-med has a habit of demanding time and care, and 
biology succeeded oratory in gaining Dick's attentions. 
Again he won. And if he always displays the same keenness 
of intellect that he did at the College, great success is only 
a matter of time.

PAUL Revere's, Sheridan's — all famous rides pale to in- 
significance when compared with the hair-raising trip 
which Andy the Yodeler used to negotiate from Beverly 
every morning in Old Faithful, his trusty Ford. So tena- 
ciously did he adhere to schedule that when the town clock 
went out of commission, Beverlyites set their clocks and 
watches by Andy's flight. Dependable regularity was his 
keynote and he slipped but once. — As stage manager he be- 
came so interested in a bit of femininity in the sixth row 
that he utterly forgot to play his role (that of the army on 
the march) . 

Junior Prom 


To this young man fame, deservedly, came early. For 
when has was in Freshman he was chosen editor of that 
unique booklet of verse written by members of his section, 
Carmina Tirorum. Some of the selections in the volume 
were very good, some, of course, less pleasing, but the pub- 
hcation stands today as a gallant little monument to the 
bright efforts of one Freshman section. 

We could tell you many things in praise of its editor, 
but rather let us leave his name in connection with this small, 

' igh — and truly inspiring — achievement. 


IF there is any one thing which characterizes a Boston 
College man, it is — no ma'am, not the phrase, "You must 
distinguish," and no, Genevieve, not the "Boston College 
head," — it is his buoyancy. And Jim was buoyant, — strong- 
ly, infectiously so. He was, as a matter of strict fact, fairly 
quiet, yet both physically and mentally his vigor was so pro- 
nounced that we felt he was the very spirit of activity. 

Fortifying his light-heartedness, we perceived, was a 
strong will-power which, in conjunction with his other 
qualities, makes Jim's ultimate success a thing of certainty.

A baseball player whose batting average was .367 and a man

WE used to like to think that Doug was representative 
of the College. He was fine, capable, courageous, — 
an exemplary student, a hockeyist who fought his way up 
until he became an illustrious goalie, and a chairman who 
gave us one of the most successful Father's Days ever held. 

But his most appealing trait was his ability to make loyal 
friends. His secret was his willingness and firm desire to go 
out of his way to help others. 

Doug was fine, noble, kind. And in his memory we can 
do nothing better than to strive to be as he was.

SOMEBODY once wagered that Johnny Mackin knew the 
name, height, age and weight of each musician in all the 
better-known bands of the country. The aforesaid some- 
body reached this conclusion by attending six dances in one 
week and then finding out that Johnny was three up on him 
by the simple expedient of attending more than one a night. 
But if Johnny had a flair for social life, it was because 
he had the necessary gifts. He had wit, natural friendliness, 
pleasing presence. Also resource. And he possessed that rare, 
warming something, — a spark.

pleasant memories. 

His hobby: reading short stories.

To judge by his appearances, Ed must have borne a 
charmed hfe. He was an excellent pre-med student, — 
one of talent and hard work — and yet (except on biology 
exam days) he never lacked his somewhat mischievous smile, 
his seemingly happy-go-lucky state of mind. He was a seri- 
ous-minded, determined student, but by no means only a 
student. Frequently up to his neck in work, he was never, 
as far as we could see, down in the dumps. 

Ed is to be envied, — he who, despite his cares, could ap- 
pear as if he had none. And we hope he will always be thus.

uiLT along the lines of a Camera, Sal Messina was a 

musician who could make a piano talk syllogisms. And 
being one of the people who took classes with at least a re- 
spectable degree of seriousness, he could talk right back to it. 

Robust, rugged, but gentle as a Spring zephyr, Sal 
tackled the pre-med course, — another sign of a strong char- 
acter, if you know anything about pre-med. But if medi- 
cine becomes his life's work, music will be his life's love. 

Good-natured, he knew practically everybody. His one 
fault: lip fur.

LIKE Jack Horner, Tom sat more or less in the corner, 
but unlike the vainglorious little plum-puller he never 
proclaimed what a good boy he was. With Tom this was un- 
necessary. For we all realized that he was a sincere man, a 
studious man, and — -yes — a good one. 

But his most outstanding trait seemed to be a wide and 
penetrating wisdom. He possessed a level-headed realization 
of the relations of things, and on this knowledge built a well- 
balanced life. He was a man who made good judgments, 
one who had an understanding of the fundamental things of 
life, one who will never be deceived by shining appearances.

had the reputation of never offering the same excuse for 
absence twice, and, to our knowledge, he was stumped only 

He had just glibly offered as an excuse an illness on the 
part of Dan Guerin, stating that he had just stopped en 
route to drop a few words of cheer at the bedside of the 
stricken one, when footsteps outside the Dean's office 
heralded the approach of another latecomer. And the late- 
comer was — well, guess who.

OB was not quite so subdued, even in his first two col-

sessed a rare type of analytic mind and an ability to speak 
clearly and powerfully. It was easy to characterize him as 
distinctly "big timber," not the kind of tree that flourishes 
quickly and briefly, but the kind that, like the oak, rises in 
its own good time to its own height and strength. 

We hope that Bob will continue to cut the less pleasant 
of life's corners with his razor-edged wit and keen humor.

gentle, strong and valiant?" 

And the same question might have been asked of our

abundance. Moreover, whereas the hero of As Yon Like 
It, seeking self-expression, could only write poor verses and 
pin them on trees, our hero was master of another art. Side 
by side with his liberal arts education went his musical train-

the shoulders of smiling Joe Murphy. Moreover, Joe would

remember you made no speeches. Of course, you never sat 
in the background twiddling your thumbs. Did we admire 
your intelligence? Or humor? Was it your openness? Or in- 
dustry? Or politeness? Or was it some happy combination 
of all? 

Anyway, if you know the answer to this question, will 
you let us know?

What's that! Yes it is ... no .. . yes! The Salem Lim- 
ited is pounding the 'Pike, and piloting it is — you've 
guessed it, Michael Joseph Murray. 

We wonder what he and the others used to discuss as 
they roared by. Very likely the Salem Club, for as its able 
President Joe conducted it through a successful year. Or 
sports, and there too Joe could speak with authority, for he 
came from St. Anselm's highly rated as an athlete. Or finally 
things scholastic, and here again Mike (Joe) was pre-emi- 
nent. Merry, Judicious, Moderate — Michael Joseph Murray. 


To Walter belonged the serenity of a man of good 
thought. Very decidedly he was a man who tilled his 
mind, and in reward he reaped wisdom, calm, understanding. 
Another thing he gained was good humor, — but not the 
helter-skelter, jack-in-the-box variety, rather the quiet good 
nature we should expect in a very level-headed and self- 
possessed young man. We used to marved at his bearing and 
dignity as he strode up Lake Street mornings in sun, rain or 
sleet, but we knew there was something equally sturdy. And 
that was his good nature. 



INDUSTRIOUS and affable was this blond athlete from down 
Taunton way. He was one of Joe McKenney's gridiron

friendship and esteem of his classmates he always possessed.

ways felt toward you and your loyalty and will power?

BETWEEN taking care of Philomatheia matters and perpe- 
trating experiments in chemistry, Porch had much to 
take up his time. Before the laboratories demanded his after- 
noons, he was a good football player though he wasn't as 
big as some of the fellows. But labs became insistent and he 
could frequently be seen with Louis Verde making his way 
to the top floor of the Science Building. 

Forch was alert, agile, genial. Chemistry will probably 
be his life work, but whether or not his will be a fuming 
future, it will certainly be a bright and satisfying one.

posed, "regular." In a quiet way he did much for class and

and wisely spent.

\ew comers from Suburbiana were as friendly, as likable, 
JL ' and, in a way, as distinctive, as Roxbury's Frank O'Brien. 
A fellow of quiet purpose, he scorned the tumult of self- 
advertisement; he went after whatever he sought without 
display, and, apparently, without great effort. And what- 
ever it was, it seemed that he always obtained it. 

Arm in arm with his quiet purpose went a certain stur- 
diness, a straightforward manliness which seemed to point 
all his deeds. Frank was certainly a sensitive man of culture 
and all that, still there was in him something of the sturdy 
drive, the generosity, the wisdom, of the pioneer.

IN the corridors, in the rotunda under St. Michael's pro- 
tective wing, wherever he found steel worthy of his own, 
you could see Reid waging the war against one with Kantian 
leanings, or against another who seemed kindly disposed to- 
ward that famous triumvirate, Fichte, Schelling and Hegel. 
Reid is the class nominee to re-edit the loose-leaf ontology 

Between dialectic and criteriological jousts, he found 
time to do intensive work in Latin and to travel with the 
orchestra and charm the countryside with his violm. 

Earnest, conscientious, industrious, he brought and will 
bring credit to the class.

JOSEPH may be Dave's middle name, but after having seen 
him perform with equal ease and dexterity as an "elec- 
tric chair" victim in Fr. Corrigan's class and as a dashing 
member of the chorus in Dick Wbittington, we're tempted 
to substitute Versatility in its place. Yet is is a tribute to 
his persistance and hard work that he arose from Fr. Corri- 
gan's seat of persecution as from all other scholastic tests, 
victorious, with head bloody, perhaps, but still pretty cocky. 
But victory will always meet one with Dave's firm smile, 
and the semi-concealed twinkle in his eye.

FRANK belonged to the champagne of things. He was 
bright and breezy. And sparkHng and heartening. It's a 
httle trite to say that a fellow scattered good cheer wherever 
he went, but the phrase seems made-to-order for Frank. He 
had a wit that bubbled up from a fine intellect, and a good- 
nature which sprang from a charitable heart. You went out 
of your way to meet him. He possessed the wisdom of light- 
heartedness. He worked hard. He was sincere. Gossip — all 
too prevalent in men's colleges — he scorned. Frank, we want 
— always — to keep in touch with you.

MATT O'Malley was one of those people whose content- 
ment is in direct proportion to the multitude of duties 
confronting them. For Matt was at his ease only when he 
was busily engaged in promoting some project or other. 
Whether it was a bridge party, tea dance or. basketball game, 
he brought the same pressure and energy to bear on each, 
and the result was always an enterprise that was stamped — 
as if by Matt's trade-mark — with outstanding success. 

Matt's unselfish loyalty and his omnipresent good nature 
will always be warm in our memories.

NE of the canons laid down by the editors of this book 
'must be broken when we speak of Victor Ouimet, for 
we are going to call him "quiet and unassuming" — but with 
a difference. If the editors object, who are they anyway, and 
why was the Siib Tiirri so late? Victor was quiet with the 
quietness of wisdom and unassuming with the ability to see 
things in their proper perspective. One of the finest and 
most distinguished-looking members of the class, he worked 
simply, with dignity and ease, surrounded on all sides by our 
admiration, our friendship, our constant good wishes.

YEARS and years and years ago there was a song which 
proclaimed, "I'm just bub-bl-ing o-ver," and wherever 
Joe appears, bands should play it. For in him affability, 
freshness and what lady novelists used to call the "rapture of 
youth" all seemed to be concentrated. Outside of class, he 
was ever his sparkling self. In class, his buoyancy was some- 
what subdued, yet it was never wholly subjected. In fact, it 
gave a zest to his scholastic work, and we dare say that this 
mingling of bubbling-over-ness with sincere work made him 
the vital man and student he has become. 


,(((ir FEAR a man of scanty speech" says the verse, and what 
JL we'd hke to know is how it could possibly have been writ- 
ten before Joe was born. Why, it's enough to make one move 
over to the Adversaries' side of the Psych page, and turn 

We often wondered about the judgments behind those 
quiet, intelligent eyes. Not that Joe was dour or anything of 
the sort, for it would be hard to find anywhere a more 
friendly fellow. But he was taciturn. And we know that his 
ideas, to those who were privileged to hear them, proved 
eminently worth while. 


i^ifTL-ir ^^^' Joh"! Congratulations for that editorial in the 


.Heights! And for that hundred in Ethics! Now, how- 
do you do it?" 

"Well, it's not hard work . . ." 

Liar, we whisper to ourselves. "Then what is it?" 

"It's not any intellectual gift ..." 

No? "Then what?" 

"You see, — every morning, for breakfast, I eat Kellogg's 
bran, and to that I owe all my success!" 

Which, reader, is our inexpert way of telling you that 
John Patterson was a fine student and an even finer person. 





The hero of the day is Joe Paul, 
and we certainly wish that Mark 
Bellinger could write the story. It 
seems that Joe was given the lead 
in "Beau Brummel" when Ed Her- 
lihy took his scarlet fever to bed. 
Joe worked hard and long, mas- 
tering his role in a surprisingly 
short time. Then Ed got well. The 
play was announced for a two 
night engagement, — next Monday 
and Tuesday. Mr. Bonn S. J., the 
coach, decided that in deference to 
both Joe and Ed, who worked so 
diligently, that the right thing to 

do would be to let each man play 
the part once. Our Joe then enters 
the scene and buckled. The coach, 
embarrassed, then said that that 
was the arrangement and he could 
like it or else. But Joe buckled fur- 
ther. It seems that he didn't mind 
the idea of losing the part one 
night at all, — no indeed. He insist- 
ed tD the astonished cast that Ed 
be allowed to play both nights, 
since "it was his part in the first 
place." Herlihy argued with him, 
Mr. Bonn pleaded, but Joe was 
adamant. Sounds like a boy scout 
story, but it's the truth.

IF Plato were right, and the universals actually existed in 
some heavenly place, should we attain to that sphere, we 
should easily find the universal of a good disposition. We 
should stalk about Paradise with the above photo in our 
hand, looking for that disposition which most closely ap- 
proximated Bob Perchard's. 

In class, in Fulton, in the lunch room, Bob was ever un- 
ruffled. Courteous, quiet, companionable, Bob was one of 
those people you want to know well. And as your knowl- 
edge of him increased, so correspondingly did your friend- 
ship and respect.

than did Luke; — heads turned irresistibly when he strode by. 
Though something of a philosopher, he was essentially a man 
of action, a vital personality, — in short, one gifted by the

ITiM was another of Roslindale's contributions to the col- 
lege on the heights, and a good man he was, personally 
and scholastically. A clever baseball player too. Moreover 
rumor had it that the call of social life was strong. 

In a class in Education Jim once read a paper which 
evoked the comment that its excellence was marred by the 
difficulty of hearing the author. Jim's reply, audible to 
barely a few, was that it was just as well, that had it all been 
heard clearly, it might not have sounded so fine. This was 
typical of him. 




As soon as you met Gus, you felt that he would give you 
the shirt off his back. True, you had to be pretty big 
for it to be of much use, but if you could fill it you knew it 
was yours. A fine tackle, he worked with the football team 
unselfishly, excellently. A bright companion, his friendship 
wore well. 

He was agile, genial, good-looking — but there was some- 
thing peculiarly heart-warming about him which we wish 
we could express — a blend of humor and modesty and sym- 
pathy — a sort of laughing-eyed expansiveness.

THAT noise in the corner was Jim Powers tuning up his 

Lanky, indifferent, affable, James Richard Powers was 
mainstay of the violin section in the orchestra, specialist in 
history, member of the Ethics and Business Academies, var- 
sity baseball pitcher. 

Boston sports writers enjoyed his occupancy of the 
mound. No exhibitionist, he pitched with amazing fluency 
and ease, baffling many an opposing batter with a tricky 
curve ball. McCrehan, dour doctor of bigger and better base- 
ball, held him in high repute. 

P.S.: Jim also gave orations at L'Academie Francaise.

Quill is the man who will do it. We refer not to Dan's

questions which Dan had a knack of using whenever a class 
showed signs of becoming dull. 

Remembering these sparkling moments, his forcefulness 
in debating, his no less wise than interesting conversation, his 
sincere friendship and genial "How's everything?" we shall

THERE are so many phases to Charlie's individual self that 
it is difficult to select his salient characteristics. His abil- 
ity in debating and oratory was a commonplace to Fulton- 
ians, and his tennis form was something to talk about. And 
as Business Manager of the Stylus, he served that publica- 
tion with a maximum degree of efficiency. Justly he can be 
called one of the outstanding men of the class. 

Not insensible himself to the pleasure of the table (and 
of generously sharing it) , Charlie loved Horace's philosophy, 
and his war-cry is memorable: "Cake! And beat the earth 
with a free foot!"

No friendship will be more cherished than ours for Jack 
Quinn. Jack, loyal, gifted, was willing to try and try 
hard in all lines of endeavor. Never denied his honors in 
classroom work, he participated in many extra-curricular 
activities as well. 

Steadfast? In four years as a member of the band, he 
never once missed a rehearsal or performance. 

We understand that Jack has entered the field of educa- 
tion. We know that if the past is any criterion of the future, 
he will make the ablest of instructors of our youth.

NEAT, serene, clear-eyed, Bill is the only known member 
of the class to inspire lyric outburst on the part of a 
classmate. Bill's eyes, the classmate observed, quite extem- 
poraneously, were: 

"As blue as Dorchester Bay 
On an early morning in May" 
and what this lacks in poetry it makes up in fact. Bill was 
quiet, modest rather than shy, and possessed of a distinctive, 
somewhat sly, somewhat whimsical sense of humor. A keen 
student, he was singularly level-headed. But Bill's deeds, 
however tempered they were by a cool head, were always 
forged in a warm heart.

DEBONAIR is a much misused adjective, but in reference 
Tom Ramsey, it is amazingly apt. Some are gifted with 
that enviable quality of savoir faire which distinguishes them 
from the average. Tom's position in this select group is as- 

Coupled with this asset of urbanity, Tom possessed a 
pliable mind which grasped any situation on the instant with 
nonchalance. His status among his fellows was enhanced by 
the equanimity with which he met both scholastic duties and 
social obligations. In short, Tom was a well-balanced fellow

Yet the omnipresent smile, which neither pole vaulting 
nor Latin scansion nor his multifarious duties as A. A. Rep- 
resentative in Junior could seem to disturb, identified Bill 
like a trademark. It is rumored that he acquired this perma- 
nent adjunct of cheerfulness from close association with a 
well known Law and History professor. Whatever be its 
source, never lose it, Bill.

IF we had to analyze Paul Reynolds, according to Thesis 
44 of General Ethics, we think the characterizing verdict 
would be "phlegmatic," for Paul was ever calm, deliberate, 
well-poised, and imperturbable. To many, it was a constant 
source of wonder how Paul could appear so indifferent to 
goings-on in class and still be one of its undisputed leaders. 
His quiet humor and his even disposition were charac- 
teristic. Paul was one of the most mature and truly philo- 
sophical members of the class, as well as one of its finest 
men of letters.

IN every school there is usually one fellow who endears 
himself to his mates because of his hard, unflagging effort 
and work. In '33 that fellow was big, easy-going Tim Rior- 
dan, whom you couldn't help liking any more than you 
could help admiring his untiring effort and determination. 

Puzzle: Tim was anything but negligent, since a more 
conscientious student would have been hard to find. In fact, 
there was probably no one in the class who deserved his A.B. 
more than Tim. Yet it was his unique boast that he never 
studied a single hour at home.

FROM a little old town with a little old church in a little 
old valley came Ed, who rose from a Stoughton boy- 
hood to the vice-presidency of our Business Club. But there 
was nothing rustic about him, since Ed was not only capa- 
ble and wise but carefully dressed and well-groomed as 
well. His was a serious, almost solemn, expression which

You can say "Jim Robinson" even more quickly than 
you can name his great-great-great-great-great-great- 
grandfather Jack, but it takes a much longer time to de- 
scribe him adequately. For Jim does not fall into a type. He 
was quiet, but his quietness sheathed a keen mind. He was 
modest, but his modesty cloaked a strong determination. All 
of us knew his generosity and sincerity, but some did not 
perceive that at the roots of his character was a firm will, 
a power that will direct him on his way over any obstacles 
to his eventual success.

WHEN Lu-uke's eyes are smiling, sure it's like a morn 
in spring . . . Only they were usually half smiling, 
half grinning. But anyway, together with his slow smile, 
they indicated the disposition of an attractive young man 
whose friends were as numerous as his acquaintances. 

However, Luke was never a corner-smiler, one of those 
people who sit in a corner twiddling their fingers while they 
smile at the efforts of those who try to accomplish some- 
thing. We found him in the orchestra, at the academies, in

acting always as a gentleman.

IT may seem strange to say this of one who was so busy, 
but Dave impressed us as being a man who was biding his 
time. He was a pre-med student, a good one, and rumor hath 
it such students must work, yet he was looking to the future. 
He was quiet, studious, level-headed. He had a fine and 
ready sense of humor. All sorts of triumphs seem ahead of 
him, and when he starts climbing that old ladder of suc- 
cess, he will probably find that because of his very nature 
he is half-way up already. 



Up from historic old Plymouth came this stalwart lad 
with the romantic name of Mario. Possessing some of 
the renowned stability of Plymouth Rock, Zan was a bul- 
wark in the old Maroon and Gold forces. His inspiring and 
yeomanly performance in the Fordham game serves as a 
worthy example for future Eagle fledglings. 

During the summer months, while Phil Couhig was de- 
livering ice up on the North Shore, his teammate Mario was 
doing likewise on the South Shore (cracked ice included) . 

In class, as on the gridiron, Zan was ever an inspiring 
leader and companion.

ud's surname, unless our philology is all wrong, means 
'king, — and that just about explains his position in sports. 
Even before Freshman Bud was known on all sport pages as 
an athlete who could skate through the air over twenty beer 
barrels or use a croquet mallet for something besides crack- 
ing walnuts. At the Heights he became a collegiate pitching 
sensation, drawing the interest of the major league scouts. 

But we think of Bud as a pleasant, mature classmate and

his great friendliness, his high-minded charm. 


A PALE, slim, retiring fellow with a thoughtful smile; a 
sober, serious student; a quiet, friendly classmate. That 
is a complete and accurate description of Paul Ruttle. Our 
memory of him is that he never failed to attain high scholas- 
tic standing, to give you a lift in his car if you happened to 
be going his way, or to win the respect and friendship of 
both professors and students. If it be not an unwelcome 
intrusion, we should like to extend to Paul our respectful 
wishes for a bright and happy future at Shadowbrook.

Two very dissimilar creatures were Charlie Ryan and his 
faithful Ford, for when the latter came in snorting and 
whinnying after the daily jaunt from Belmont, Charlie was 
all smiles and quiet. And he was such a good listener that 
many a boring lecturer on seeing Charlie's close attention 
thought his discourse was proving of interest. 

He was a keen student and an active member of the Rifle 
Club and the science academies. But his particular specialty 
was the Psych class, where the penetrating difficulties he pro- 
posed were the despair of his professors, our delight.

other of his chief characteristics, — his fiery pugnacity, his

est, but we do know that Bill had what makes gen- 
uine greatness and at the same time was one of the most 
unassuming men we ever met. While the rest of us were 
singing our praises, Bill would remain silent and when all the 
tumult was over, behold he was usually first across the line. 
He was a student whose brilliance was undeniable, whose

IN 1929 the Freshmen team was playing Dean Academy. 
It was about the second game of the season and experts 
were looking for Likely Material. Tongues whispered, stilled, 
and cheered when the twelve winning points for the Fresh- 
men were scored by one Joseph Ryder — Kent Hill. Here, 
they said, is a football player. And, as ensuing years proved, 
here was one. 

The years proved more. They revealed that Joe was as 
good a companion as player. Jovial, uncomplaining, humor- 
ous in a sometimes ironic, sometimes almost whimsical fash- 
ion, he became no less hero, more friend.

iLOOD brother of the Sub Tiirri, Ed had the reputation 
'of never arriving anywhere on time. However, when he 
did arrive, such was his poise, f riendhness, wit, that his tardi-

He was quiet, easy-going, but under this easy-going 
manner was a keen alertness. He was smart, loyal, genial, 
but outstanding was his composure. Who but Ed, for in-

tained even as a cheer-leader, despite the almost universal de- 
mand for his cart-wheels. 

Also, Paul was a humorist. He was good at repartee, but 
he rated four stars for his swift, sparkling, but not unkind, 
observations about proms, prisms, professors and just about 
everything else under the sun. Calm, serene, affable, Paul was

IT was in the Marquette that Joe Shields' nasal twang first 
attracted our attention. And closer acquaintance revealed 
his keen wit, intellectual brilliance and quiet modesty to be 
equally distinctive. A good debater and a student of high 
scholastic achievement, Joe, for all his good-fellowship, was 
somewhat averse to letting his light shine forth. However, 
we remember with pleasure the rare occasions on which he 
allowed himself to hold blushingly forth, — especially among 
the select company of that grimly-embattled but illustrious 
group. Junior D. 

N. B. It was no joke. He did come from East Jaffrey, 
New Hampshire.

,N first acquaintance Harry seemed quiet, meek, serious, 
— except for one thing, and that was the constant 
twinkle in his eye. He seemed to be thinking of some pre- 
cious and secret joke, — and when we knew him well, we real- 
ized that he probably was. 

If Harry was quiet, he was smart; if meek, of the meek 
who shall inherit the earth. He was friendly, helpful, cour- 
teous, — a tall, slender fellow who was every inch a gentle- 
man. And he never lacked poise. On the contrary he was 
quite the man of airy nonchalance, — especially in that relic 
of medieval barbarism, the Scholastic Disputation or Circle.

WHILE some of us were running around from one thing 
to another, at times, perhaps, acting pretty ridicu- 
lously, one young man looked on with thoughtful eyes. It 
was a mature, balanced young man whose high forehead and 
direct gaze were indicative of his character. He was quiet. 
He was unassuming because show or pretense was unneces- 
sary. His friends sometimes regretted that his opinions were 
not better known, but self -publicity of any sort was for- 
eign to his personality. And, after all, he already had that 
to which most of us aspire, — the respect and affection of his

WHAT do you say, Stiles?" was a query that became 
familiar to our ears as a prelude to a joshing profes- 
sorial inquisition of one whose unfailing good humor seemed 
to invite such attack and whose diligence and innate ability 
almost invariably produced a table-turning answer. Charlie 
presented that most desirable combination of fine student, 
entertaining companion, and loyal college man which Boston 
College is peculiarly successful in turning out. And he 
achieved the reputation of being one of the social lions of 
the class. 

Personally, Charlie wins the nomination as our favorite 
Philomatheia Ball Chairman.

HOWEVER applicable it may be to the publication of a 
certain Stib Turri, the term "sleepy" can never be ap- 
plied to Mr. Charles A. Sullivan. For, taciturn as he may 
have been, he was certainly one of the mostest wide-awakest 
young thinkers we knew. He was modest — almost too mod- 
est — and consequently some of his classmates recognized 
him as a sincere and genial companion, but not as a keen, 
earnest philosopher. 

But his friends discovered the whole of him, and it is 
just because they understood him so well that they became 
so admiring, so loyal.

IF during your travels you encounter a light-haired, hatless 
young man swinging jauntily along, carolling the while 
in Morton Downey fashion and creating the impression that 
he hasn't a care in the world, you can be pretty sure that he's 
Chris Sullivan. That Chris' sublime indifference to such 
mundane things as lectures produced such high marks was 
always a source of amazement and admiration to us. And 
so was his seemingly irrepressible vitality.

IT was always a source of wonder and amusement to us to 
watch Sull boarding the train at Fields Corner. He was 
the only man we can remember who had to duck to negoti- 
ate the door successfully. Yet for all his height, it is some- 
what of a paradox and considerable of a tribute to say that 
we have never known him to look down on anyone. 

A conscientious student, — a burner of the midnight oil 
in pre-med — a quiet, companionable classmate, Sull was a 
man whose will, wisdom, gentlemanliness, can be called, we 
hope, typical of Boston College.

WITH his personable wit and humor, Neil used to style 
himself as "the model member of the Class of '33". 
This self-conferred honor was, sad to relate, quickly for- 
gotten after a memorable occasion on which Fr. Boehm de- 
fined any model as "only a small imitation of the real thing." 
But be that as it may, Neil was certainly the real thing 
where industry and work were concerned. He possessed a 
remarkable ability to tackle the most mountainous of jobs 
and to conquer them as if they were molehills. The zeal with 
which he undertook the most uninviting tasks, and the 
success he always attained in them, were things for the rest 
of us to admire, and to copy.

TIMOTHY Sullivan, known to some intimates as Two 
Buck Tim for a reason they refuse to divulge (but 
which, we presume, referred to that very ancient song rather 
than to Tim's financial status), distinguished himself as one 
of the most capable musicians the College has produced. He 
was one of the most faithful members of the Musical Clubs 
in 1933, and even outside of school he could be found in 
places of the most contrasting character making sweet use of 
his clever clarinet. 

But to members of '33, Tim was noted not only for his 
musical skill, but for his peculiarly dry wit and most oblig- 
ing nature as well.

too, such was his interest and prestige in the functions of the 
College — and in those of sister institutions of higher learn- 
ing — that his presence was sufficient to constitute any event 
a social success. 

And let's always remember the excellent manner in 
which he filled the chairmanship of the Ring Committee, and 
the universal satisfaction that resulted from his efforts.

THERE are many aspects of Joe Tansey, any one of which 
might form the nucleus of a very eulogistic biography: 
— his scholastic leadership; his personal popularity, as evi- 
denced by his strong candidacy for the class presidency in 
c^^j|/^ Junior; his clarity and vigor of thought and expression; 

even his slashing tennis game. But to our mind, Joe's out- 
standing characteristic was his uncompromising, almost 
brusque frankness which attracted and held true friends, at 
the same time scaring away successfully any sycophants. 

Brusque and brilliant, straight, clear-eyed, Joe became 
our model because we recognized in him — stature.

GEORGE, better known perhaps as The Chief, could stand in 
with the greatest of our silent statesmen. But along 
with his taciturnity he brought from Brighton High and 
Kent Hill Schools a sense of decorum, and even being guard-

grand fellow's poise. 

For The Chief some proverbs seem made-to-order. And

''E have witnessed many brilliant achievements on the 
part of members of the class for the greater honor 
and glory of Boston College. But none has impressed us so 
greatly as an example of simple, sincere, and unselfish loyalty 
to the College as Eddie Tellier's action in contributing to the 
support of the Sophomore Plan, though he was unable to 
attend most of the activities. 

To our respect for him as an ambitious, untiring stu-

rade was added an admiration which true greatness must

boards of the Opera House to the strains of the Triumphant 
March of Aid a. Sandals, soldiers, spears . . . Ah (we swallow 
our tears) — them wuz the happy days, John . . .

And that just about explains the career of Mark Troy. 
Rarely do we find such initiative and perseverance as was 
manifested by Mark, who seemed to have inborn in his very 
makeup the knack of administering successfully any charge 
that fell to his lot, and of doing so in a way which demanded 
our admiration. To this ability he added a ready, lively wit 
and singular skill as a raconteur. 

And let's not forget the loyalty to his class Mark dis- 
played on more than one occasion, — loyalty which more 
than merits any little praise we can bestow.

TOM impressed us partly just because he made no effort 
to impress vis. A tall, curly-headed young man, he went 
through the College quietly, with thought, without display. 
Gradually, we grew to appreciate his nature, and a circle of 
friends gathered around him which continually grew wider 
and wider. 

If we were not afraid he would laugh and spoil the effect 
of our beautiful moralizing, we would point him out to all 
Freshmen as a model of modest activity. He worked studi- 
ously, well. And his reward was the acquisition of a simple, 
real dignity.

hope he continues his studies in his chosen field.

'IM must have taken warning by hearing that every time 
a certain man opened his mouth he put his foot in it. At 
any rate, Jim maintained a habitual silence, but an un- 
necessary one. For he was not only a pleasant young man 
with a quiet, lively sense of humor, but an intellectual young 
man besides. 

He was a Salemite, and we think it significant that among

TOM was not the first of his family to graduate from the 
College, and he found that following in a brother's foot-

hurdled it, characteristically, with evident ease. 

Quiet, yet congenial; a good student, yet a good mixer 
too; always willing to cooperate in class activities, yet never 
blatant in advertisement of that fact; Tom possessed this 
important knowledge: — he knew when to be light-hearted; 
he knew when to be serious.

Class of 1934 

Gregory L. Sullivan, President

James A. Brennan, Secretary Ray T. Harrington, A. A. Representative 

BOTH individually and collectively the members of the class of 1934 were very 
prominent in College affairs in 1932-1933. Under the direction of Gregory SuUi- 
van the class completed an eminently successful year, and several of its members served 
in sports, socials and the various extra-curricular activities. 

On the football squad no less than twenty-one men represented this body. Frank 
Maloney and Ed Kelley played fullback, Johnny Dougan, Jim Lillis, Tom Blake, Bill 
Carr, Ray Harrington, Bob Ott and Joe Orlosky halfback, and Johnny Freitas quarter- 
back. Flavio Tosi, Joe Killelea, Stanley Jundzil and Harold Ramsey were ends, Ike Ezmunt 
and Frank Donahue tackles, and Louis Musco and Greg Sullivan were at center while 
Gerry Slamin, John O'Lalor and Pat Ford were guards. In baseball Johnny Freitas, Bill 
Boehner, Charlie Kittredge, Roger Shea, Ray Funchion and John McLaughlin represented 
the class. Joe McLaughlin was Manager of Hockey, while Ray Funchion, Herb Crimlisk, 
Tom Blake, Greg Sullivan and Charlie Downey were active on the team. And several of 
the class were interested in track, including Paul Dailey, Dana Smith, John McManus, 
Bill Parks, Bill Hayes, Neal Holland, Flavio Tosi, Bill Donahue, Tom Daley and Guarino 
Pasquontonio. A number of others attained prominence in minor sports, among them 
Paul Shine, who was Captain of the Rifle Team, and Herb Kenny, Captain of the Fenc- 
ing Team. 

Moreover, members of the class were anywhere but in the background in other activi- 

ties. Robert Glennon, John Roach, James Fay, John Barry and WiUiam Donahue of the 
Fulton all engaged in intercollegiate debating. Herbert Kenny was Managing Editor of 
the Stylus, and afterwards Editor of the Junior Pic. Many worked on the Heights, while 
A. Marcus Lewis was elected President of the French Academy. And certainly one of the 
outstanding men of the College was Ted Marier, genial pianist, director of the band and 
composer of the music of that stirring song, "Sweep Down the Field for Boston." 

The class' social activities began with the Hallowe'en costume party at the Hotel 
Bradford on October 21st and ended with the dance at the Commonwealth Country Club 
on May 24th. But of chief interest, of course, was the Junior Prom which was held on 
February 17th. Raymond H. Roberts was chairman of the prom, and William J. Day, Jr., 
chairman of the week. A skating party was also held, an innovation for the week. 

Not to be left out in mentioning Junior Week is the unforgettable football game held 
the preceding November in which the Junior Week committeemen defeated the band 
before the cheering onlookers at the famous Cleveland Circle Coliseum. 

Dick Whittingion, the musical extravaganza which the class presented in conjunction 
with the Junior Philomatheia Club, was a memorable feature of Junior Week. Unques- 
tionably it was one of the most elaborate productions — collegiate or commercial — which 
those in the audience had ever seen. George L. Keleher was appointed chairman of the 

After 193 3 the class continued its activities as wisely as it had conducted them before. 
Gregory Sullivan was again president and again piloted his class through shallow financial 
seas to harbor. The unity which always marked the functioning of the class' affairs was 
always one of its most enviable characteristics. In the Spring of 193 3 Herbert A. Kenny 
was elected to the editorship of the Heights, and handled this venture as skillfully as he 
had previously handled the Junior Pic. Besides editing the sheet, he conducted the column, 
"Tabloid," as Editor Dan Cotter had done two years before. A. Marcus Lewis, who was 
chosen to take care of the Sub Turri, saw that it was published well — and promptly. In 
sports, Frank Maloney, Captain of Football, brought his team through a successful season, 
defeating Holy Cross, 13-6, while Captain Charlie Kittredge and his baseball team like- 
wise enjoyed a happy season. Hockey, under Captain Ray Funchion, had a fine year, and 
the feature of the track season was the defeat of Holy Cross at the dual meet for the first 
time in many years. John McManus was captain. 

Then a desired and dreaded day arrived and again Boston College held her annual Com- 
mencement exercises. Thus in the June of 1934 the class joined the alumni, leaving be- 
hind a bright history in the College annals.

UNDER the genial guidance of its president, Frank Liddell, the class of 193 5 became 
one of the most interesting and colorful groups at the College. In 1932-1933 there 
were few activities in which members of the class did not take part. 

Twenty-three of the class were on the football squad. Bernard Moynahan, Roger Kir- 
van, John Kirvan, Bob Curran, Joe Curran, Dave Couhig, Al Luppi, Frank Liddell and 
Paul Curley were listed as backs, and Henry Ohrenberger and Frank Cowhig as tackles. 
Gordon Connor, Paul Donohoe, Ray Prendergast, Ed Anderson, Jim Dalton and Roger 
Egan were ends, and Bill Duffy and Walter Picard guards, while Randy Wise, Ed O'Brien, 
Ray Perry and Peter McCauley played center. Six of the class. Bob Curran, Dave Con- 
cannon, Bob Duffy, Ed Anderson, Ray Prendergast and Charlie Callahan, polished the 
baseball diamond, and there were at least eight track men. John Joyce, Gordon Connor, 
Dave Couhig, Frank Eaton, Gerald Lee, John McCurdy, Frank O'Loughlin and Albert 
Rooney were among them. Frank Liddell, Harold Groden and Randy Wise were active 
in hockey. 

Intellectual activities were far from neglected. John Murphy, Raymond Belliveau, 
Gabriel Ryan and several others were prominent in the Marquette, and Paul Curley, 
Charles Daly, Arthur Sullivan and Raymond Belliveau in dramatics. Irvin Brogan was 
named Prefect of the Sophomore-Freshman Sodality. Steven Fleming, Grover Cronin, 
Henry Foley and John Mclver were all active Stylus men. A poem of Steven Fleming, 

"The Werewolf," won for the Stylus a first place award in a contest conducted by the 
Literary Association of Jesuit Colleges. 

Several class functions were given. A Sophomore social was held at Longwood Towers 
on December 7th. Eddie Welch's Orchestra, of which Ted Marier of the class of 1934 
was pianist, played. Charles Featherstone was chairman. On March 16th the class ban- 
quet was given in the Senior Assembly Hall, under the direction of Eddie O'Brien. Rev. 
Francis V. Sullivan, S.J., and Rev. Robert E. Sheridan, S.J., were present. George Good- 
win, Steven Fleming (who, according to the Heights, stole the show, turning the cele- 
bration into a Steven Fleming Nite), George McCarron, Joe Keefe, Arthur Sullivan, Dan 
Carney and several others took part in the entertainment, including Jerome Sullivan and 
Charles Sargent who imitated two popular French professors. 

On April 28 th, under the chairmanship of Gene Donaldson, the Sophomore Prom was 
successfully held in the ballroom of the Chamber of Commerce Building. Ruby New- 
man's Orchestra played. 

In the two years that followed the graduation of the class of 193 3 its younger brother 
attained all the prominence that seemed its due. Frank Liddell, twice re-elected presi- 
dent, continued to serve the class as he had before. For the year 193 3-34 Steven Fleming 
was chosen to edit the Stylus, a rare honor for a member of the Junior class. In the fol- 
lowing year Grover Cronin headed the publication, giving the class the distinction of 
having two Stylus editors in its midst. Eddie O'Brien was Editor-in-Chief of the Heights, 
and considering the difficulty in administering his job in a time of thin finances, he did 
remarkably well. In arranging to give his class an excellent Sitb Turri, Raymond Belliveau 
worked steadily and wisely. Grover Cronin and Joseph Ryan headed the Fulton. The Musi- 
cal Clubs had an outstanding season. 

Dave Couhig was elected Captain of Football, and the team fought against obstacles 
through a quite successful season, despite a loss of the annual game to Holy Cross, 7-2. 
This was the last team to be coached by the ever-admired Joe McKenney. Frank Liddell 
was Captain of Hockey in the first year in which it was officially recognized as a major 
sport. Dartmouth and Boston University were among those defeated. Co-captains headed 
baseball, both of them fine players, — Bob Curran and Dave Concannon. And during the 
indoor season of track, of which John Joyce was captain, second place in the intercol- 
legiates was taken by the two-mile relay team. 

Robert Adams and Raymond Belliveau were chosen Commencement speakers. 

A tragedy in the lives of all members of the class — and of the alumni as well — was the 
sudden death of Rev. Patrick J. McHugh, S.J., the beloved Dean of Studies. Sorrowful 
about the sad event, the class knew that in Rev. Walter J. Friary, S.J., Fr. McHugh has 
a worthy successor.

ON the morning of the second Thursday in September, 1932, a number of young men 
were assembled in a loosely clinging group about the steps of the Tower Building. A 
hooded man behind a camera said, "Just a minute pliss, boys." There was a click, and the 
crowd disintegrated. A unit's first recording had been made. 

The Class of 1936 began its life with awe, yet to become affection. Dean of Freshman 
was Rev. Russell M. Sullivan, S.J., who personified the seriousness, enthusiasm and zeal 
proper to the Freshman's incipient career. The wheels slowly began to turn, not painlessly, 
with Quintus Horatius Flaccus, John Henry Cardinal Newman, "Poetry is the expres- 
sion ..." sines and cosines. Summer faded and it began to get dark early. And the beauti- 
ful big green stadium was dedicated one day, and the football season had begun. 

And while the Varsity team was scoring up victories, the Frosh team didn't do so 
badly itself. Bill Kelleher's boys lost one game (to St. Anselm's), tied one (with Dean 
Acadenny, 0-0) and won three. Defeated were Bucksport Seminary, 13-6, B. U. Fresh- 
men, 19-0, and finally the Holy Cross Freshmen, 13-6. 

On November 10th the class elected its officials. Now an official entity, it was tendered 
its Freshman Day. November 23rd brought intramural football, cinema, a banquet, music 
and entertainment. After Christmas vacation the class entertained for the first time, in 
the Kenmore Hotel, with an informal dance. Following hard upon this event came the 

first barrage of provincial fire. Several fell by the wayside, and the rest marched on. 
Towards the middle of February came a change in one of the faculty offices. Fr. Sullivan, 
the dean, because of illness was transferred to duty in the missions. On February 18th, 
1933, he sailed away to Jamaica. Rev. Walter F. Friary, S.J., one of the Freshman profes- 
sors and afterwards Dean of Studies, was chosen to replace him. 

On April 3rd the Marquette Prize Debate was held. Of the six contestants three were 
members of the class. They were C. Donald Floyd, Lawrence J. Riley and Mark J. Dalton. 
To Mark Dalton was awarded the Gargan Medal for individual rhetorical excellence. 

Largely through the instrumentality of George F. Mahoney, the class of 1936 was 
individually represented on the diamond in the field of sport. He arranged a substantial 
schedule, and with the co-operation of the class, despite financial obstacles, was able to 
effect a very commendable season. 

The class climaxed the social season with the Freshman Prom, which was held at the 
Hotel Somerset on the evening of May 12th. John Mclnerny was chairman, and Ruby 
Newman played. 

One by one each of the exams clicked under the wheel of the days, and at last the class' 
first year was over. 

The following years moved swiftly. Louis Mercier, Henry Beauregard and others con- 
tinued their fine work on the Stylus. Zaitz, Driscoll, Galligan and Brennan were among 
those who offered valuable service to the football squad. The Sophomore Social was chair- 
manned by John T. Daley, and before long it was time for the Sophomore Banquet. Law- 
rence J. Riley was chairman. Robert SanSouci conducted an all-Sophomore orchestra. A 
feature was the tragi-comedy presented a la grec, with chorus and chorypheus. On March 
12th another Marquette Prize Debate was held and again a member of the class, this time 
Lawrence J. Riley, won the medal. The Sophomore Promenade, held in the Imperial Ball- 
room of the Hotel Statler, was one of the outstanding events of the year. 

During the summer of 1934 John Maguire abdicated his class presidency to enter the 
seminary. James H. Mclnerney was elected to his place. 

In 1934-3 5 the class skipped from syllogism to syllogism, all in the direction of Junior 
Week. After several of the class had figured prominently in football, Joe O'Brien was 
elected captain for the following year. After the season of hockey, where again men of 
the class were active, Fred Moore was chosen to be its captain. And in the Spring, Paul 
Power, who had shown great talent in his work both on the Heights and on the Stylus, 
was named as editor-in-chief of the former. Henry Beauregard won the Fulton Prize De- 
bate. Frederick W. Roche was elected to head the class in 193 5-36. 

Thus at the end of the year, members of that class which was, figuratively, a babe in 
arms in 1933, stood ready to don all the aged dignity of Senior.

Dedication of the Stadiumi 


^HE football season of 1920 had come to an end. 
Boston College had just completed a most success- 
ful campaign, numbering Yale among its victims, and as 
a result football interest at the Heights was running 
unusually high. 

With a view to giving the Maroon and Gold elevens a 
larger field in which to play their football games, plans 
were drawn up for a new stadium to take the place of 
the Alumni Field dedicated in 1915, but which, now, five 
years later, was deemed inadequate for the increasing 

number of spectators that were beginning to follow Bos- 
John P. Curley, '13 ^^ t^ it- a ii i • j- r l 
„ , , ,, ton Colleee athletic teams. Ail seemed in readiness tor the 
Graduate Manager ^ 

of Athletics carrying out of the project, when due to unavoidable cir- 

cumstances, it had to be laid aside. 

Vitally interested in the working of the group which fostered the original plans was 
John P. Curley, present graduate manager of athletics. Hardly had he succeeded Frank 
Reynolds in office, when a rumor was heard to the effect that Boston College would 
have a new stadium, and in the spring of 1932 this rumor became a fact, when Father 
Louis J. Gallagher, S.J., newly elected president of the college, and the graduate board 
of athletics gave their approval to the project. 

Work was begun about the first of June under the supervision of Rev. Charles 
Roddy, S.J., faculty director of athletics. Student help was employed with very few 
exceptions. It was the lot of this group to tear down the old stands, sift dirt, chop down 
trees — in short, devote their time and efforts to the completion of the stadium. A few 
miscreants threw clods at each other, and slept behind dirt piles, a decided "extra 
curricular activity," and one not called for in the original contract. 

Members of the football squad came to work about the middle of June and devoted 
their time and effort to the erection of the stadium proper. This section was dubbed 
"The Iron Workers" because of their work on the steel stands. They remained on the 
job until the 25th of August when they left for Jackson, N. H. to go into training for 
the football season. 

At the Loyola game on October 1 the stadium was dedicated with appropriate cere- 
mony. Among the gathering were President Louis J. Gallagher, S.J., Monslgnor Burke, 
representing Cardinal O'Connell, Mayor Curley of Boston and Mayor Weeks of New- 
ton. Thus was taken another step in the building of Boston College, a step which has 
been termed as "the greatest forward movement since the original purchase of the land 
on which Boston College now stands."

Tte Pigskin Bounces Back"ward 


THE 1929 edition of the Maroon and Gold Freshman eleven presented a fine group 
of candidates to Coach Bill Kelleher, starting his third season as yearling mentor. 
Mario Romano, the "hysterical Plymouth Rock"; Phil Couhig, the speech-making foot- 
ball captain; George Taylor; Tubber Brennan; Maurice Whelan; Tom Connolly, all of 
whom were to make their presence felt before they received their sheepskin, helped form 
a formidable frontier. Others included in the line were Gerry Slamin, Don Ward, Flavio 
Tosi and Don Fleet. In the backfield were Pete Chesnulevich, who later was to make 
his mark as one of the flashiest backs to ever don the colors of Maroon and Gold, Jack 
Cassidy, Roddy Hughes, Ray Callen, Charley Kittredge, Lou Musco, Joe Ryder, AI 
Luppi, Bucky Warren and Buddy Roy. 

Victories were scored over St. Anselm's 13-0; Dean 12-0; and St. John's Prep 6-0. 
A 7-7 tie with Bridgeton at the first Freshman Day and a 7-6 loss to Holy Cross com- 
pleted the schedule. 


If any team had its ups and downs the 193 eleven surely did. Starting off like world 
beaters they downed Catholic University 54-6. The team slowed down considerably for 
the second game, barely nosing out the Quantico Marines 13 to 7. This contest was 
played during the American Legion convention week and drew a fine crowd. 

The heavy Fordham machine, enjoying an undefeated season, was the next visitor, and 
though heavily favored, the Ram barely squeezed by for a 3 to victory through the 
medium of Frank Bartos' field goal late in the fourth period. Still fighting, but lacking a 
scoring punch, the Eagles suffered their second loss in a row, this time being clawed up by

the Villanova Wildcat in Philadelphia 7 to 0. Clete Gardner, 
the Main Liner's captain, put on an Ail-American exhibition 
of football and personally conducted his mates to victory. 

The next game was played in Boston where Dayton Uni- 
versity was submerged 15 to 6 on an afternoon which looked 
like the preliminary to another historic flood. Marquette 
next brought along a field goal artist named Milton Graney, 
who booted the pigskin twice between the uprights for the 
only scores of the day made by either team. 

The Georgetown contest, the next on the schedule, was the 
thriller of the season. The two teams pushed and shoved 
each other over the field for three touchdowns apiece, but a 
missed try for point after the final Maroon and Gold touch- 
down spelled defeat 20 to 19. 

A trip to Chicago to meet Loyola University in a night 
game placed the home boys back on the winning path once 
again, 19-0. Boston University next gave the team a limber- 
ing up in preparation for the Holy Cross engagement, the 
Eagles romping through almost at will to score seven touch- 
downs, Chessy tallying three of them. Hootstein registered 
the Terrier's annual six-pointer. Final score 47 to 7. 

The 28th annual classic between Boston College and Holy 
Cross resulted in a 7 to win for the visitors from Mt. St. 
James. A blocked punt in the second period, recovered be- 
hind the goal line by Zyntell, and a Captain Garrity conver- 
sion were the margin of defeat. It was the first Holy Cross 
win since 1924. 


In one of the best contests ever to open a Boston College 
football schedule, Catholic University was turned back 26-7, 
but not until they had given the Eagle backers a genuine 
scare. For after receiving the opening kickoff the visitors 
marched to a touchdown in six quick plays and kicked the 
extra point. The half ended with the score 7 to 6. Boston 
College started rolling in the second half, however, and thres 
touchdowns, two of them by Chesnulevich, took the_ game 
out of danger. Chessy v/as the whole show in the Dayton 
contest, scoring one touchdown, rushing the point, and throw- 
ing a forward to Meier for the final six-pointer to give Boston 
College a 13 to win. 

Captain Jim Murphy of the Fordham machine accounted 
for 14 of his boys' points as his charges waltzed throvigh the 
Eagle forces for a 20 to win in the third game of the 
season. Villanova won the next game 12 to 6, the Boston 
College score coming on the end of Harry Downes' 8 5 yard 
run after intercepting a pass. Marquette again went West 
with another victory this time 7 to 0, the touchdown being 
scored in the final period after the Eagles had been battered 
b)' the heavier Westerners. 

In their 20 to 2 win over Georgetown the team showed a 
decided improvement in all branches of the game. Chessy 
once again tallied twice. The Municipal Stadium in Baltimore 
was the scene of the second straight victory, this time at the 

Warren, back 

expense of Western Maryland 19 to 13. The historic Ken- 
tucky Colonels provided the opposition on Armistice Day, 
and were forced to go back to their southern plantations 
suffering a 7 to defeat. 

McKenney kept most of his regulars on the bench during 
the Boston University game, the subs rolling up an 18 to 6 
win. At one time during the contest the Terriers became 
especially vicious, so Chessy was sent in to tame them with 
two touchdowns. Hootstein once again scored his annual 
touchdown against the Eagles for the only score of the 

The annual Holy Cross classic held at the Harvard Sta- 
dium on Thanksgiving Day afternoon was the highlight of 
the football season. A punt blocked by Ike Ezmunt when 
the Purple was forced to kick in the shadow of the goal, and 
recovered by DeVenuti behind the goal line, was responsible 
for the only Boston College score. Everything pointed to a 
Maroon and Gold celebration until Phantom Phil O'Connell, 
held in check all day by the fierce tackling of Captain Joe 
Kelly, dashed into the territory vacated by the gallant 
Maroon and Gold leader, who had been forced to leave the 
game, and ran 1 8 yards for the equalizer without a hand 
being laid upon him. Griffin kicked the all-important win- 
ning point. 


Strengthened by a two week pre-season training period at 
Jackson, N. H., the 1932 edition of the Maroon and Gold 
varsity dedicated the new Alumni Field at University 
Heights, October 1, with a well-earned 20-0 victory over 
the Comerford-coached Loyola eleven from Baltimore before 
a representative gathering of some 10,000 football enthusiasts. 

Pete Chesnulevich was the key man in the Maroon and 
Gold attack. When he was not ripping holes in the Loyola 
line he was tossing passes to his teammates or kicking goals 
after touchdown. Though he rung up only two points for 
his afternoon labors, his pass to Johnny Freitas gave Boston 
College the first tally to be made on Alumni Field and a toss 
to Tosi, the second six-pointer, this coming after a brilliant 
50 yard dash through the Loyola team by the aforementioned 
Mr. Chesnulevich. Bob Curran added the final touchdown in 
the last period. 

One pleasant surprise was the snappy appearance made by 
the squad in their new maroon uniforms with gold trim. 
They were a decided improvement over the old suits of gold 
with maroon trim. The only violator of the rule of sartorial 
conduct was Mario Romano, who allowed his stockings to slip 
from their moorings as he was coming out of the game in 
the final quarter. We are glad to say, however, that this 
untoward incident had no effect on his play for he was con- 
tinually piling up the opposing backs at the line of scrim- 
mage. Maurice Whalen, George Taylor and "Class Poet" 
Reynolds also gave a fine account of themselves while Phil 
Couhig, the leader of the first eleven to play on the new 
Alumni Field, set a shining example for his mates.

The "Praying Colonels" of Center College, famous for 
their Bo McMillan and Red Weaver were the second 
visitors to Alumni Field. This contest drew a Columbus Day 
crowd of 14,000 fans, the largest to see a football game at 
Alumni Field all season. 

Johnny Freitas was the big gun in this game, his thrilling 
67 yard dash after catching a punt late in the final period, 
giving Boston College the only score of the contest. It was 
only after being worn down by superior man-power that the 
visitors from the Blue Grass State, who gave one of the most 
courageous exhibitions seen on Alumni Field all year, were 
forced to bow in defeat. 

Boston College opened up in great style, marching the 
length of the field to finally lose the ball behind the line 
when a pass was grounded in the end zone. From that time 
on neither goal line was threatened seriously until Freitas' 
startling dash. Catching a Center punt near his own 3 yard 
line he ran toward the sideline at his left. Seeing that he 
would be buried under five or six opposing tacklers who 
were swarming down upon him, Johnny turned a complete 
circle and headed for the opposite side of the field. At mid- 
field he again was met, this time by another section of "the 
invaders' army," but by wonderful sidestepping and dodging, 
and aided no little by timely interference on the part of his 
mates, he avoided all danger and finally outsped the safety 
man to score standing up for the sole tally of the contest. 


Hopes of an undefeated season were rudely shattered as a 
result of the Marquette contest played in Milwaukee on Sat- 
urday, October 22. It marked the first time that year that 
the goal line was crossed, and also the first game in which 
Boston College failed to score. 

The game had hardly gotten under way when an attempted 
Freitas punt was blocked on the 20 yard line. The orphaned 
pigskin was claimed by Becker, Marquette end, but 1 5 yards 
from the goal line and in two plays the Golden Avalanche 
had tallied six points. Becker added the seventh on a well- 
placed kick. 

Not content with one touchdown with the game only five 
minutes old, the home boys made the count 1 3 when, on the 
very next kickoff, Becker ran the ball to the three yard line 
where he was finally downed by Frank Maloney. There was 
no stopping the Marquette surge, however, and Ronzani 
swept over on the next play for the touchdown and the 
final score of the contest. 

From this point on Marquette was content to play a wait- 
ing game, while try as the visitors might, they could not 
pierce the rugged defense of the Westerners, their closest 
approach to scoring being somewhere in the vicinity of the 
20. yard mark. Marquette managed to work the ball into 
Boston College a few times during the remainder of the 

Romano, cente 

game but by climbing up the backs of the lanky eligible 
receivers, the midget Maroon and Gold secondary prevented 
the completion of any forward passes. 


Boasting one of the outstanding elevens in the country 
and heavily favored to win, a powerful Fordham team paid 
its first visit to the Heights since the fall of 1918. But 
when the last whistle had blown and the final returns were 
in, Boston College had triumphed for the first time in four 
years, and in so doing had uncovered a field-goal kicker in the 
person of Norwood's Ed Kelley. Kelley's placement kick, late 
in the second period, was the only score of the game and the 
result astounded the football world who had predicted a 
Maroon win by at least three touchdowns. 

But benefiting by the mistakes of the Marquette clash, 
and also by the practice furnished a whole week previous 
to the game by a strong Freshman team in running through 
the Fordham plays, the Maroon and Gold eleven outfought, 
outrushed and outscored the visitors from the Bronx. The 
nearest the New Yorkers came to the Boston citadel was the 
20 yard line, and this only because Boston College promptly 
fumbled after the leather had been brought out following a 
touchback. The determined charge of the Eagles, however, 
not only halted the expected drive of the visitors, but drove 
them back to the 3 5 yard stripe in three plays. 

Anderson started the Maroon and Gold march for the 
winning score by recovering a Maroon fumble near the 3 
yard line. After two first downs were made, the attack 
stalled in the shadow of the goal posts, and Kelley dropped 
back to 15 yard line and booted over the all-important tally 
with Freitas holding the ball. 


Almost as surprising as was the Fordham win, so, too, was 
the 20-9 loss to Villanova. The lads from Philly boasted three 
wins and a 7 to 6 setback at the hands of South Carolina, 
but the Wildcats were not figured to defeat Boston College. 
However, the Fordham win must have exacted too great a 
toll on the home boys, for after setting up a 9 to lead, 
they wilted considerably halfway through the second period, 
and three touchdowns, one before the close of the first half, 
and the other two in the third quarter, clinched 20 points 
and the verdict for the Main Liners. 

The scoring opened shortly after the start of the game 
with Ed Kelley coming through once again with a field goal, 
this time from the 32 yard hne, and when Tosi blocked a 
Donahue punt on the 2 5 yard mark, and recovered behind 
the goal line for a touchdown, it looked like clear sailing. 
However, this was the signal for Harry Stuldreher's boys to 
get down to work. From this poiflt on Boston College did 
not seriously threaten, while Villanova improved as the 
game progressed. Their first score came on a line buck by Joe 
York, the ball being placed in position mainly through a 30

yard dash by Whitey Randour, the 
visitors' big attraction. The second 
tally came after a long march the 
length of the field, while the final 
touchdown and the one which re- 
moved all doubt about the final result 
of the contest was tallied by Randour 
himself on a 45 yard pass from Toby 

Western Maryland 

Friday, Nov. 11, Armistice Day, 
brought the strong Western Maryland 
team to Alumni Field and when peace 
was declared, the Maroon and Gold 
had once again thrown away a fine 
lead, this time one of 14 points, the 
game ending in a tie 20 to 20. 

Boston College had the going all its 
own way in the first half and particu- 
larly in the first quarter, when two 
touchdowns were scored, one on a 
pass from Chesnulevich to Maloney 
and the second on a 1 5 yard gallop 
through tackle by Chessy. The 
Nashua mite also kicked the extra 
point for a 13 to lead. 

The visitors scored shortly before 
the half ended on a line plunge by 
Shepherd, but the Eagles went into a 
14 point lead in the third quarter 
when Chesnulevich carried the ball 
over from the 27 yard line in two 
plays. He again added the extra point. 

However, no sooner had Boston 
College scored its third touchdown 
than the gentlemen from the south 
began to go places. A series of decep- 
tive forward passes, particularly a

Boston University 

On the muddiest gridiron of the 
year the Boston University Terrier 
was repulsed 21 to 6 in the warm-up 
clash before the Holy Cross game. 
Getting a new deal in the coaching 
line, the charges of Lane, McManmon 
and Colucci were expected to put up 
quite a battle. But once again it was 
the annual story of too much man 

Boston College ran up the initial 
score in the first quarter on a pass 
from Chessy to Freitas, who caught 
the rain-soaked oval on the 30 yard 
line and waded along to the goal line 
without a hand being laid upon him. 
Pete swam up a few minutes later to 
kick the point. 

Shortly after, the home boys again 
splashed over for a score. This time it 
was Chessy who picked his way 
around the puddles, taking off from 
the three yard line in a beautiful 
swan dive to land safely in the pool 
beyond. His kick for the point, though 
successful, landed in a large puddle, so 
that S. S. Pigskin had to be retrieved 
with a pole before the contest could

Convinced that the game was as 
good as won, McKenney sent his first 
stringers up for their Saturday night 
baths while the rest of the squad ate 
mud and drank water for the re- 
mainder of the game. Joe Curran 
slopped over for the final six-pointer 
before the end of the first half. 
"Ducky" Warren paddled over for the 
point. The Terriers tallied their annual 
touchdown in the third quarter on a 
lateral from LeGuerne to Ulman. 

Chesnulevich was the best swimmer 
for Boston College, plunging across 
for one touchdown, passing for an- 
other, and adding two points after 
touchdown. "Web Foot" Couhig was 
right at home, paddling his way over 
and through the puddles, while 
"Plymouth Rock" Romano stood 
firm as the breaking waves dashed 
high about him. 

Holy Cross 

One of the most freezing days ever 
to dawn on a Boston College-Holy 
Cross football game greeted 10,000 
odd fans who braved the frigid winds 
of Fitton Field to witness the 30th 
meeting between these two Jesuit 
rivals. Slightly favored to win, the 
odds being based to a great extent on 
their season's defensive showing, the 
Purple hoard was pushed and shoved 
to all corners of the gridiron as an 
inspired Maroon and Gold offense, 
more potent than at any time during 
the year, chalked up ten first downs 
to the Crusaders' none. Though the

offensive power of the Holy Cross 
eleven was lacking, their much- 
heralded defensive ability was never 
more in evidence, for try as the 
Maroon and Gold stalwarts might, 
they could not cross that last white 

The nearest approach to anything 
resembling a score came in the first 
quarter. Taking the ball on their own 
3 yard stripe, the Eagles, with 
Chessy and Freitas doing most of the 
carrying, advanced the oval as far as 
the three yard line. On fourth down, 
with goal to go, Freitas gave one dy- 
ing effort but the strong Purple fron- 
tier held like a brick wall. From that 
point on, play was centered at mid- 
field, Holy Cross never getting any 
closer to the Maroon and Gold fort- 
ress than the 45 yard line. 

In his last college game Phil Couhig 
put up one of the best exhibitions of 
his entire career. Couhig was more 
often than not the fifth man in the 
Crusaders' backfield, while other 
times he was content to stop the play 
at the line of scrimmage. Romano, 
Taylor, Whelan and Reynolds all did 
fine work while little Peter Chesnule- 
vich lived up to all the things ex- 
pected of him, doing the greater 
portion of the carrying, and coming 
through with as much yardage as 
could be expected against such a 
rugged frontier as that which the 
Purple boasted.

I WISH to take this opportunity to express my 
personal appreciation to the baseball squad of 
1933 and particularly to those who are members 
of the class of 1933 for the commendable spirit 
of co-operation which made my third year as 
varsity coach one of the most successful of them 

Faced with the discouraging prospect of begin- 
ning practice on a make-shift field, and handi- 
capped to a great extent by unfavorable weather, 
the squad went ahead to give Boston College one 
of the most courageous outfits to ever sport the 
colors of Maroon and Gold. 

A team that can spot a Jack Barry coached nine 
a game, and that by the discouraging count of 
15-1, and then come back to win the next two 
contests, has plenty of what it takes to be success- 
ful, not only on the field of sport but also in the 
game of life. 

To Captain Jim Crowley, Duke Mclntyre, 
Buddy Roy, Pete Chesnulevich, Jim Powers, Bob 
Graney and Tom Walsh, I wish the greatest of 
success in the years to come. And to you of the 
Class of 1933, remember that these boys came back 
to win only after the hardest kind of battle. What 
they can do, so, too, can you. 

Yours with best regards, 


of nineteen thirty-three

Baseball Passes in Review^ 


THERE was some doubt as to whether Frank McCrehan would 
return to coach the Freshmen in the spring of 1930. He had 
enjoyed a very successful year in 1929 his first as coach of the year- 
lings, his nine losing only to St. John's Prep, but due to pressure of 
business it was thought that he would be required to forego his 
coaching activities. However, when the bell rang for the initial prac- 
tice McCrehan was ready to impart his knowledge to as fine a group 
of ball players as ever entered Boston College. 

For pitchers he had Buddy Roy, Bill Boehner, Bill Erwin, who 
later transferred to Mt. St. Mary's and Joe Kimball from Newton. 
Behind the bat were Duke Mclntyre, Mario Romano and Owen 
Mullaney. On the initial hassock was stationed heavy sticker Joe 
Ryder, but he was closely pushed for the job by Charley Kittredge. 
At second base was Peter Chesnulevich. Bucky Warren, Tom Walsh, 
Bert Nyhan all waged a close battle for the hot-corner assignment 
and Bob Graney was added to this trio, when he saw that he could 
not displace Jim Crowley at shortstop. Warren, Nyhan and Graney 
all played third during the year. 

The outfield was composed of the left-over infielders but they per- 
formed their task to perfection. George Taylor, who originally started 
out to be a catcher, cavorted in the left garden; Tom Walsh was 
shifted from the hot-corner to center field, while Bill Hogan picked 
them out of the sun in right field. 

The team defeated Andover 6-4, Wentworth 11-2, Boston Uni- 
versity 17-11 and 8-3, St. Anselm's 1-0, Exeter 6-2, and Dartmouth 
Freshmen 5-4. Defeats were administered by Samuel Johnson Prep 6-5 
and Holy Cross Freshmen. 


Frank "Cheese" McCrehan was appointed varsity coach in the 
spring of 1931. 

After the usual limbering-up exercises held at the Commonwealth 
Armory, McCrehan selected the men to take on the trip south. Pete 
Herman, Ed Gallagher, Jim Donovan, Barney Curtin and Harry 
Downes were the pitchers, all having more or less experience in hurling 
the pellet by the wagon tongue wavers. The "local boys" who made 
good on the pitching staff were Buddy Roy and Bill Erwin. Capt. 
George Colbert, Freddy Meier and Duke Mclntyre, another home 
town product, were delegated to catch the slants of the chuckers dur- 
ing the trip into the sunny (?) south. The infield was made up of 
Frank Meehan, one of the classiest fielders ever to guard first base on 








Alumni Field, Pete Chesnulevich, Jim Crowley and Andy Spognardi. 
In the outer garden, reading from left to right were Johnny Temple, 
Jopey "Baldy" Shea and Frank Reagan. These lads had held down the 
far reaches of Alumni Field for the past two seasons so their selection 
was merely a matter of form. 

The trip was a flop as far as sunny weather was concerned. The 
contests with the Quantico Marines and Georgetown were cancelled 
due to wet grounds. Villanova won 5-2, but the boys equalized by 
defeating Princeton 12-4. 

Returning once again to the aerie on the Heights, the Eagle got off 
on the right foot, through Pete Herman's masterful four-hit hurling 
to defeat Boston University 3-0. The victory march was halted tem- 
porarily on Patriot's day when Fordham inflicted a 10-6 loss. Then 
followed six straight victories, the string starting with a 7-5 win over 
Syracuse and followed by victories over St. Bonaventure 6-3, Boston 
University 17-4, Georgetown 7-5, Mt. St. Mary's 7-6 and terminating 
with a 6-4 win against Villanova to gain revenge for the defeat suf- 
fered on the southern trip. 

Providence College, always a nemesis to Boston College baseball 
aspirations, snapped the victory string with a 7-6 win, and Fordham 
administered the second straight loss, in New York, by the score of 
6-4. The Eagles climbed back on the victory path, however, through 
the medium of a 12-11 win over Springfield in as weird a contest as 
had been seen at Alumni Field for some moons. 

Games with Tufts and Dartmouth played as Commencement fea- 
tures, followed, resulting in victories of 12-4 and 2-0 respectively. Jim 
Donovan, pitching his last game for Boston College held the Indians 
of Hanover to six hits. Hosei University from Japan was defeated 
9-1, while Holy Cross won the annual series two games to one. 


No southern trip was listed for the baseball nine during the spring 
of 1932, and as later events turned out perhaps it was for the best. 
Practice began at the Commonwealth Armory around the latter part 
of March. It was up to McCrehan, starting his second season as varsity 
coach, to find capable successors to Herman and Donovan, pitchers; 
Colbert, catcher; Meehan, first-baseman and the outfield trio of 
Temple, Reagan and Shea. 

For his starting lineup in the opening game with Fordham, Mc- 
Crehan selected Gallagher and Meier as the battery, infielders Kit- 
tredge, Chesnulevich, Crowley and Spognardi, and outfielders Callery, 
Lane and Ricci. Boston College finally emerged victorious by the 
close count of 9-8, the Fordham nine coming fast in the final inning 
to score four runs and almost tie up the ball game. 

Following the Fordham clash came six fine victories in a row.

Springfield was the second victim, falling 11-5. Roy and Mclntyre 
formed the battery in this game. Middlebury was defeated for the 
third win, and then followed a close 2-1 decision over Syracuse with 
Ed Gallagher allowing only four hits. 

Boston University next fell before a savage Maroon and Gold on- 
slaught 13-7, and when the strong N. Y. U. nine was taken over the 
jumps 6-5, Boston College became baseball conscious. 

The seventh straight win was hung up at the expense of none other 
than Bill Erwin, who used to pitch on the Freshman team, but now 
was on the mound for Mt. St. Mary's. Erwin was greeted like a long- 
lost cousin with two runs in the first inning, another in the second and 
still another in the fourth canto. In the meantime Roy was throwing 
them by the gentlemen from the south with momentous regularity, 
no less than fifteen taking their three swings and retiring to the bench 
talking to themselves. The final score was 6-3. This was the highest 
point reached by the 1932 Boston College baseball stock. 

The following day, a cold drizzly Saturday, the baseball stock 
became watered. Harvard Grads inflicted the first set-back of the 
season 7-4. Then came a 4-1 win over Boston University with Jim 
Powers on the mound, followed by a heart-breaking loss to Provi- 
dence College 3-1, the visitors scoring all their runs in the ninth on a 
homer by Reilly, the Dominicans' shortstop. 

Still hitting about the size of their hat, the home boys dropped a 
second straight decision, this time to Villanova, 4-2. Gallagher en- 
joyed a two run lead until the seventh when the lads from the City of 
Brotherly Love pushed across four runs and victory. 

The team climbed back on the victory path, however, with two 
fine wins over Middlebury 5-4 and Manhattan 11-3. 

Boston College now had six games remaining on its schedule, one 
each with Fordham, Providence and Tufts and the traditional three 
game series with Holy Cross. They were crucial games, for all except 
Tufts were in the running for the Eastern Championship as well as 
Boston College. The results were disappointing, however, for the Tufts 
contest was the only game entered on the win side of the ledger. Holy 
Cross took three straight games, bringing to a close a season which 
belied its successfvd beginning. 


Under what were perhaps the most unfavorable conditions ever to 
confront a Boston College baseball coach, Frank McCrehan started 
the 1933 season. The late start made necessary by the uncertainty as 
to whether the sport would be continued, the adverse weather, the 
selection method of picking the candidates due to the restricted area 
used for practice while the new diamond was being completed, all 

cuh y 



tended to hamper the proper conditioning of the players. Yet before 
the season was completed, the 193 3 nine had won the title of being 
one of the most courageous ever to sport the colors of Maroon and 

The season opened on April 7 with the game against the Red Sox 
at Fenway Park, Boston College losing 9-2. Then followed a rest of 
three weeks due to the postponing of both the Fordham and Vermont 
games, but McCrehan's charges broke out in all their pent-up fury 
on April 28 and subdued Bates 10-1, in the first game to be played 
on the new diamond. Mclntyre complained of a severe cold the next 
day for Roy caused no less than 13 to fan the breezes. Roy's relief 
pitching saved the Boston University game at Riverside on May 2. 
He entered the contest in the fourth inning with the count 6-0 
against him and blanked the Terriers for the remainder of the battle. 
Boston College won 8-6. 

The Alumni fell next 5-3. This is the history-making game in 
which Joe McKenney came to bat against Bob Duffy and every man 
on the team except the pitcher and catcher, not only literally, but 
actually, laid down on the job. Duffy must have entertained thoughts 
about striking Joe out, but the pride of the house of McKenney 
thought otherwise. We need only to quote the now famous statement 
to describe the incident. "The crack of the ball against bat was 
heard and ten minutes later McKenney pulled up at first base, tired, 
but happy." 

William and Mary administered the first defeat by a college team 
2-1. Bob Duffy for Boston College and Stankus, on the mound for 
the Indians, allowed four hits apiece. Roy blanked Georgetown 7-0 
allowing them only two hits and fanning 10. Harvard Grads then 
gave the nine the worst beating to date, 11-3, but this was avenged 
one week later with an 8-4 victory. Boston University was defeated 
in the game at the Heights 8-0, with Roy granting one lone single 
and striking out 12. This was the first of four successive wins, the 
following three coming at the expense of Middlebury 5 to 2, Provi- 
dence 3 to 2 and the aforementioned Harvard Grads 8 to 4. The 
Providence victory put the boys in the money, for the Friars were in 
line for Eastern baseball honors. 

Starting with the New York trip on May 25 the nine experienced 
the hardest going of the entire season. The team lost six of their next 
seven games. The first defeat was at the hands of Manhattan in New 
York 3 to 2. The N. Y. U. win was the sole victory of the trip, 11-9. 

Fordham won 10 to 8 in another free hitting contest. Holy Cross 
15 to 1, Providence 6 to 4, and New Hampshire 11 to 2. This last 
defeat was the toughest of them all, because the lads from Durham 
had experienced an unsuccessful season, and such a loss was entirely 

unexpected. A 4 to defeat at Providence was the last game of the 
losing streak. 

Here the team turned over a new leaf and finished the season in a 
blaze of glory by not only taking the remaining four games, but by 
finishing up the string with the most crushing defeat ever adminis- 
tered to a Purple nine by a Boston College baseball team. The score 
was 17 to 8. A thrilling 6 to 5 win in ten innings over Holy Cross 
furnished the team with the necessary confidence, for from that game 
on they broke out with a flock of base hits, the hke of which they 
had not shown all season. 

Jim Powers held the Tufts forces at bay in chalking up a 10 to 4 
win. This game was played as a Commencement feature at the Med- 
ford college. Mclntyre once again entertained the gathering with his 
hitting, while Jim Crowley gave a few lessons in fielding. 

The Williams contest' played on the 17th of June at WiUiamstown 
resulted in a 6 to 1 win. The game went only five innings because 
of rain, but the score does not tell the power of the Boston College 
bats. In the sixth with the storm coming on, the visiting forces gath- 
ered four additional runs, and were going strong when rain halted the 
rally. Mclntyre hit a Ruthian wallop with the sacks loaded in this 
inning but received no official credit for his effort. 

The fitting climax to a season, which turned out to be more than a 
passing success, was the final game with Holy Cross. The Purple 
hurlers never had a chance from the second inning on, for a group 
of two runs in the first inning and a cluster of seven in the following 
session, put the game on ice. The Maroon and Gold batters walked 
to the plate with fire in their eyes and few walked back without hav- 
ing done their share to swell the total of runs and hits. Jim Crowley, 
Chessy, Roy and Mclntyre all contributed to bring the first win in the 
series since the spring of 1927.

A Note From Our Coach 

THE Boston College class of nineteen hundred 
thirty-three will always be readily remem- 
bered for two reasons. 

The first reason is that by graduating the track 
team lost more point winners than were ever lost 
by previous graduations. It is a case of "read them 
and weep": Phil Couhig, Bob Jordan, Ed Carey, 
John Moynahan, John Carey, John Mulherin, 
Maurice Whalen, John Kaveny, and our distance 
stars, Ralph Ward and Frank Lang. Seventeen 
points gone of the twenty-nine and one-half points 
which won for Boston College the title of New 
England Intercollegiate Champion. 

The second reason has to do with the spirit, the 
sportsmanship, ths loyalty displayed by Senior 
members of the track team during the most dis- 
couraging year, athletically, of this coach's tenure 
of service. This engendered spirit, sportsmanship 
and loyalty showed in the other members of the 
track team. Depression, closed banks, all-round 
pessimism might have decreed "There will be no 
track this spring" but irrepressibles like Bob Jor- 
dan, Frank Lang, Ralph Ward, Phil Couhig, John 
Moynahan, Ed Carey and John Mulherin shouted 
"Try to stop track." 

Yes, the Boston College class of nineteen hun- 
dred thirty-three will, in the future, be easily 


Coach of Track.

THE Freshman team of 1929 presented among its candidates a 
group which was to print its name deep in Boston College track 
history. It included Bob Jordan, Don Fleet, Paul Dailey, John Moyna- 
han, Phil Couhig, Ed Carey, John Kaveny, Bill Mulherin, Frank Lang, 
Ralph Ward, Maurice Whelan and Joe King. Others on the hst were 
John Hayes and Leo McCauley both of whom left school, the former 
to go to Harvard, while little Leo was to show up a few years later 
under the colors of St. John's Prep in Danvers. 

The Brockton Fair Meet was the first real taste of competition for 
the first year men. Hayes captured the 100 yd. dash in the remark- 
ably good time of 10 2-5 sees. Ralph Ward led the field in the mile, 
while Don Fleet, who had devoted most of his time to football, 
managed to place third in the 440. 

In the interclass meet the Freshmen lads ran off with the prize, 
running up 56 points to 45 for the Sophomores, their nearest rival. 
Jordan captured the 880, Ward, the mile and Hayes, both the high and 
low hurdles. Couhig placed first in the shot with Buddy Roy second, 
and Bill Mulherin won his specialty, soaring to a height of 1 1 feet 
1 inch. Don Fleet, who later was to gain fame as a runner, took the 
high jump with a leap of 5 feet 6 inches. Kaveny placed second. 

The Eaglets opened their indoor season successfully at the Prout 
games, when the one-mile relay team of McCauley, Jordan, King and 
Fleet defeated the B. U. and M. I. T. Freshmen runners. Fleet, running 
anchor, boasted a half-lap lead at the finish. At this point in the 
campaign Leo McCauley was elected Captain. 

The best meet of the season was with Holy Cross Freshmen. The 
result was in doubt until the very last event as the final score of 65-61 
in favor of Boston College, will show. John Kaveny won the high 
jump with the fine leap of 6 feet 1 inch, while 5 feet 6 inches was 
sufficient to win this event in the varsity meet a few days before. This 
was the best jump that Kaveny made during his college career, and 
it tied the Boston College record held by C. Flahive made in 1924. 


The opening salvo of the 1930 campaign was the track meet at 
Gloucester, Fleet's home town, sponsored by the Riverside Club. Be- 
fore a partisan gathering, the local boy made good in a big way by 
romping to victory in the 440, his first win as a member of the 


In the Prout games, the opening meet of the indoor season, the 




E. Carey 

one-mile relay unit of Carey, Sullivan, King and Fleet defeated Dart- 
mouth. Fleet ran a fine 440 in cutting down a five yard advantage 
of Andrews, the Green anchor man, and finished in front by about 
eight yards. The two-mile team of Jordan, O'Brien, Meagher and Bren 
Moynahan won over New Hampshire, Northeastern, Holy Cross and 
Harvard. The remarkable showing of Tommy Meagher was respon- 
sible for this win. 

At the B. A. A. meet the two-mile team suffered its sole defeat of 
the season, losing to the Bates College representatives with Russ Chap- 
man running for the Pine-Tree-Staters. After the Unicorn games, 
Ryder disbanded the one-mile team, which had now suffered two 
straight losses, the first to Manhattan at the Millrose games, and the 
second at the Unicorn games to Holy Cross. 

Fleet was th^n promoted to the two-mile team, and the quartet of 
O'Brien, Meagher, Fleet and Moynahan won the 1931 indoor inter- 
collegiate two-mile relay championship of America. It was the fourth 
win for Boston College in nine years, a clear indication of the genius 
of Ryder in developing two milers. Fleet ran the fastest of the quar- 
tet. His time was 1:53 2-5. 


Junior year was one of the most successful in Boston College track. 
The season started with the Harvard cross-country run along the 
Charles. Boston College finished in fourth position. The indoor season 
began auspiciously with the Prout gar s at the Garden. The two-mile 
quartet of Don Fleet, Paul Dailey, Lvo Jordan and Brendan Moyna- 
han ran to victory over N. Y. U., Harvard, Holy Cross and New 
Hampshire in 7:5 8 2-5. The one mile team of Ed Carey, Johnny Mc- 
Manus, Bill Parks and Dana Smith kept up the good work with a win 
over the fast Tech unit. 

The following week-end the medley quartet of Carey, Parks, Smith 
and Moynahan dropped down to New York to participate in the Mill- 
rose games. Handicapped by the loss of Don Fleet, who a week or two 
previously had been confined to his home with a severe case of tonsil- 
itis, the Maroon and Gold representatives were forced to bow in de- 
feat to the fast N. Y. U. team. 

At the Prout games the one-mile relay team of Parks, Carey, Smith 
and McManus also suffered defeat, losing to the strong Purple quartet 
that with McCafferty as anchor, ran the distance in the excellent 
time of 3:25 2-5. 

The New England Intercollegiates sponsored by the University Club 
was next on the list. Boston College finished in fourth place with a 
total of 14 points. Paul Dailey finished second in the 1000 yard run 

while Frank Lang took second in the two-mile after leading for the 
greater portion of the race. Bob Jordan also grabbed himself a fifth 
in the 1000 yd. run. 

One of the finest wins of the year, and the one which unfortunately 
showed that Don Fleet had not recovered from his illness, came next 
in the two-mile relay event at the Casey meet at Madison Square Gar- 
den. Jordan and Dailey ran their usual fine race, but Fleet in third 
place showed his poorest form of the season, sending Moynahan away 
on the final lap ten yards behind Nordell of N. Y. U. Moynahan ran 
his half in 1:56 3-5 that night, and barely nosed out the New Yorker 
at the tape to furnish one of the most exciting races of the indoor 

The following week the lads from Boston College and N. Y. U. 
came together again in the I.C.4A. indoor meet at the 2 5 8th Armory 
in New York. This time it was the Eagles turn to lose, Nordell break- 
ing the tape slightly ahead of Moynahan, who had come from behind 
almost to nip the N. Y. U. star at the finish line. 

Though unsuccessful in their bid for the indoor title, the two-mile 
relay quartet was to win the Penn Relays at Franklin Field a month 
later. Reahzing that Don Fleet would not be available for further 
competition, Ryder recruited Dana Smith from the one-mile team, 
and with the strong nucleus of Dailey, Jordan and Moynahan around 
which to build, gave Boston College one of the strongest teams in its 

By their win the two miler,= added to the victories gained by the 
relayers of 1924 and 1927, ant or winning three years, Boston Col- 
lege retired the Meadowbrook Cup, emblematic of the two-mile relay 
championship of America. They also took possession of the WiUiam 
Wallace trophy for a year. 

Continuing on the victory path, the runners won the third annual 
Greater Boston Intercollegiates at the Harvard Stadium with a point 
total of 735/2 to 68 for Northeastern who finished in second place. 
Dual meets were dropped to both West Point and Holy Cross but the 
season ended in a blaze of glory with the winning of the New Eng- 
land Intercollegiate championship at Providence. 


The Harvard cross-country run along the Charles started the 1932- 
33 season. Boston College did not fare as well as in previous years, 
since Frank Lang, the first Maroon and Gold representative to cross 
the finish line could do no better than third. Ralph Ward had to be 
content with ninth position, while John Moynahan, Jim Cullinan and 
Captain Bob Jordan were' spread out behind the blonde Eagle two-

In the interclass meet the Seniors once again finished in front, 
though Bill Hayes of Junior was high scorer of the meet with 17 
points. For this achievement he was presented with the Louis J. Gal- 
lagher, S.J. trophy. Phil Couhig gathered himself 1 5 points with wins 
in the shotput, discus and javelin to be next in line for individual 

The Prout games held at the Boston Garden on January 28 were 
the initial meet of the indoor season. The two-mile relay team of 
Eaton, Smith, Moynahan and Jordan started off on the right foot 
with a win over Harvard and Villanova. The one-mile team of Mc- 
Manus, Joyce, Carey and Parks also turned in a victory defeating the 
University of New Hampshire in 3:32 3-5 seconds. 

The 3 00-meter run for the N.E.A.A.A.U. Championship was 
won by no less a personage than John Carey. Not considered fast 
enough for the one-mile relay team, this Quincy lad dashed into the 
lead from the opening gun and was never headed. He finished with 
a three-yard advantage over Hanson of the B. A. A. 

At the Millrose meet the 2000 meter medley team came from be- 
hind to take the measure of N. Y. U. Jordan overhauled Frank 
Nordell, the New York ace, on the last lap and won going away by a 
good twelve yards. The time was 4:31 3-5 seconds. 

The B. A. A. games at the Garden saw the two-mile relay team win 
another fine race, this time finishing ahead of Harvard and Bates. 
Dailey, Smith, Moynahan and Jordan were the winning combination 
with Moynahan the key man in the victory. 

The University Club meet at the Garden brought out some fine 
running, especially in the one-mile event in which Quimby of Dart- 
mouth came from behind in the last ten yards to nose out John 
Moynahan by inches. So close were the two runners at the finish line 
that the officials debated quite a time before awarding the prize to the 
Green star. The one-mile relay team of Parks, Eaton, Carey and Smith 
defeated New Hampshire and Maine in 3:30 2-5 seconds, while John 
McManus placed third in the 5 yard dash behind Bell of Tech and 
Wheeler of Springfield. In the pole vault Mulherin tied for second 
with four others, Schumann of Harvard jumping to a height of 12 
feet 6 inches to win the event. 

The I.C.4A. meet in New York brought the first defeat of the 
season to the two mile team. Boston College ran the distance in 
approximately 7:51, but this gained only fourth position, for the 
Princeton relay team dashed around the same distance in 7:46.2 sec- 
onds, the fastest time ever made in the I.C.4A.'s with the exception of 
the record mark of 7:41 set by Georgetown in 192 5. 

The indoor season came to a close with the New York Casey meet. 

the two-milers placing second to Manhattan who won by ten yards. 

A rest of over a month followed giving the tracksters plenty of 
time in which to prepare for their outdoor season. The first oppo- 
nent was Bowdoin at Brunswick on April 22, the dual meet resulting 
in a win of 78^4 to 56%. Jordan, Lang, Mulherin and Couhig were 
the first place winners, the latter taking no less than two for himself, 
those of the shot and discus, and sharing a third with Nelson of 
Bowdoin in the javelin throw. In winning the shot, Couhig broke the 
Maine intercollegiate record by over a foot, with a heave of 48 feet 
1 % inches. 

A week later Boston College defended its Greater Boston Inter- 
collegiate title, but not successfully as Harvard piled up a high point 
total of 136 to 43 2-3 for the Maroon and Gold in second place. The 
only first place winners were Holland in the 120 high hurdles and 
McManus in the 100 yard dash, but Lang, Parks, Couhig, John Carey 
and Mulherin all managed to contribute to the Boston College point 

The annual dual meet with the Army re- 
sulted in a 76 to 50 setback, mainly because 
of lack of strength in the hurdles and sup- 
porting strength in the field events. The re- 
maining dual meets with Holy Cross and New 
Hampshire were split, the Purple, a pre-meet 
underdog, winning 72 to 63 while the boys 
from the White Mountain State were taken 
into camp 73 to 62. The winning of the New 
England title at Tech field brought to a conclu- 
sion a successful season. 



^^You Have Laid tte 

THE CLASS of 1933 can rest assured that they 
will go down in the annals of Boston College 
athletic history as an outstanding group. They 
need only look back to the winter of 1932-3 3 
when they restored hockey to the Heights after an 
absence of four years. 

These "Pioneers," as I would like to term them, 
and those intimately connected with the squad, 
know the sacrifice both in time and effort that it 
cost in placing a hockey team on the ice. But after 
it was over we felt that we had accomplished 
something worthwhile. 

You of the class of 193 3 have laid the founda- 
tion for hockey once more. It is up to those who 
are to follow to see that this sport does not again 
leave the Heights. 

It has indeed been a pleasure to work with such 
a fine group of fellows, not only with the mem- 
bers of your class but with the hockey squad as a 
whole. But to the class of 1933 I wish to say that 
as they have been leaders in this particular case so, 
too, must they try to be leaders in their chosen line 
of endeavor. I wish them the greatest of success 
in the years to come. 

With very best regards, 

Varsity Hockey Coach.

AFTER four long winters of athletic inactivity at the Heights 
broken only by Jack Ryder's "snowplowers" practicing on the 
board track, and a few unsuccessful attempts to inaugurate intra- 
mural hockey, the class of 1933, under the guidance of President Bill 
Hogan, restored the colors of Maroon and Gold to the iced arena. 

The first practice was held at the Boston Arena on the morning of 
Friday January 13, at 7:45, an indication that these lads were not 
to be troubled by black cats or moons seen over left shoulders. 
Fully 8 5 candidates reported to Head Coach John "Snooks" Kelley, 
'28, but by a due process of elimination this unwieldy number was 
reduced to 18 in the next few practice sessions. 

With two weeks of practicing behind them, the newly organized 
Maroon and Gold sextet skated onto the ice Saturday evening, January 
28, against Northeastern. Bill Hogan was elected captain before the 
game. The starting hneup was as follows: Left wing, Liddell; center, 
Hogan; right wing, Crimlisk; defense, Funchion and Blake; goal, 
Sullivan. The Eagles started after the Huskies from the beginning and 
it was little short of the five minute mark when Ray Funchion 
scored the first Maroon and Gold goal since the winter of 1928-29. 
Before the evening was over, Funchion had rung up four goals and 
one assist, and was easily the oustanding star of the contest. Crimhsk 
was next in line with two goals, while Liddell tallied once on 
Funchion's pass, and Cadigan on an assist from Gleason. Hogan figured 
in one of Funchion's tallies. The final count was 8-6 in favor of the 

Technology furnished the opposition in the second game, and when 
the contest was over, Boston College was still on the victory path by 
the close count of 2-1. Captain Bill Hogan tallied both goals for the 
Maroon and Gold, one on an assist from Bert Gleason, and the second 
on a personally conducted tour. Jenkins scored for Tech halfway 
through the final session. 

With two wins tucked away in the trophy room, the Eagles went 
forth to tackle the Boston University sextet in the feature athletic 
event of Junior Week. The largest crowd to witness an amateur 
hockey game in Boston that winter, 4,200, was present when referee 
Vin Murphy dropped the disc for the opening f aceoff . 

Exactly two and one-half minutes after the opening of the period, 
Boston College hockey stock was at its highest level for the season. 
Taking a pass from Crimlisk, Hogan drove the puck past the bewil- 
dered Nickerson in the B. U. cage for the first tally of the contest. 

How the crowd did roar! Staid old spinsters slapped equally digni- 







fied elderly gentlemen on the back with newspapers, the usually calm 
John Lynch turned a few hand springs for the edification of the fourth 
estate, while "tiny" Phil Couhig, overcome with the excitement of 
the moment, promised right then and there to appear in basketball 
trunks and athletic jersey in the game between the Seniors and Juniors 
following the regular contest. And this promise, if we are to judge 
by the figure that Phil cut on the ice with such a garb, was one which 
required plenty of nerve and was made only under great strain and 

Such a state of excitement, my dear friends, prevailed for the 
greater portion of the period for the underdog Eagle was giving the 
highly touted Terrier all he could stand and plenty more. However, 
the strain finally told on the not-as-well conditioned Maroon and Gold 
skaters, and with three minutes to play in the initial canto, Johnny 
Lax pushed the equalizer past Greg Sullivan. The teams left the ice 
deadlocked 1-1. 

For eight minutes of the second period it was still anybody's game, 
and then Boston University broke the tie during a scrimmage around 
the Maroon and Gold net. With one minute remaining to play in the 
period, the Intowners went still farther ahead on a brilliant dash by 

Boston College made a great bid to tie up the contest in the final 
session but the superior condition of the Terriers was evident, and 
two more goals, one by Dan Harrington and the final by Chief Bender, 
made the count 5-1 and settled the game beyond all shadow of a 

The only away-from-home contest was played with Brown Uni- 
versity in Providence on February 20, the game ending in a 3-3 tie. 

The fifth game was played with the Alumni on March 6 at the 
Arena. Led by varsity coach John "Snooks" Kelley, the "old boys" 
made quite a battle of it until, in the final period, they gave way 
before the faster skating and superior stick handling of the youngsters. 
Scoring opened rapidly with Crimlisk and Cadigan sinking the losen- 
ger for the varsity, but Scully narrowed the margin with a tally 
halfway through the session. In the second period McCarthy and 
Crimlisk again found the range, but the grads kept the ratio the 
same with Kelley 's goal. 

The grads barely made the ice for the start of the final period, 
Jope)' Shea, he of the sparsely growing thatch, being carried to the 
gate in a wheel-chair, while Doctor Groden was deposited bodily on the 
ice by his well-wishers from Cambridge. The varsity added three more 
tallies in this period, the goals being made by Cadigan, Funchion and 
Liddell, while Fitzgerald and Kelley counted for the fast-weakening 


The feature of the contest was Kelley's fine work against his own 
charges, and goalie Mike Dee's valiant but futile effort to recover 
his cap after a goal had been scored by the varsity. Smoky Kelleher 
stole the headpiece and play had to be stopped until it was recovered, 
because the light reflecting from Dee's bald spot was disturbing both 
to players and spectators alike. 

The sixth and final game of the season was a return engagement 
with Boston University. Once again the Terrier's teeth were too 
sharp, Boston College being beaten 7 to 2. Johnny Lax caged the first 
four of the Intowners' goals and assisted in a fifth, to wind up a 
very successful season. McCarthy scored on a pass from Cadigan, and 
Hogan from Liddell, for the only Maroon and Gold tallies. The season 
ended with three wins, two losses and one tie. 

The Seniors on the squad figured prominently during the season. Bill 
Hogan, captain and center ice man played an aggressive game all 
during the year, finishing high in the scoring column. The second line 
made up entirely of seniors, Justin McCarthy on left wing, Larry 
Cadigan at center and Bert Gleason on right wing, played a good game 
all year, but particularly toward the end of the season, when they 
tallied four goals in the last two contests. Chris Conway and Chuck 
Conaty also saw service, while Owen Mullaney the only Senior defense 
man on the squad, needed only to get his 190 pounds in front of any 
embryo goal scorer and he immediately hit the ice. Walter Kiley, 
who originally started as a forward, was shifted to defense because of 
his weight and he, too, checked them in his best manner. In the nets 
excellent work was done by Doug MacDonald and Bill Dunne. 

In conclusion, the squad as a whole wants to express their thanks to 
John P. Curley and the authorities at the College for their whole- 
hearted support in backing the hockey team at a time when it would 
have been possible to do otherwise; to George V. Brown of the Boston 
Arena through whose cooperation the team was able to carry out its 
schedule and lastly, to John "Snooks" Kelley, who gave unselfishly 
of his time and effort in coaching the sextet.

Golf Year 

THE Freshman team of the 193 season had in its ranks Buddy Roy, Mark Troy, 
Larry Cadigan, Dan Guerin, George Love, Chuck Conaty and Jim Moriarty. 
Matches were played with Andover, Exeter, Thayer, St. John's Prep and Dartmouth 

Only three of that group continued with the sport. Roy turned his attention to strik- 
ing out opposing batters; Love took up tennis, while Moriarty and Guerin lost active 
interest in the game. Troy continued playing for the next three years, and was rewarded 
with the honor of captain in his final year. Cadigan played occasionally and became 
manager, while Conaty dropped away for two years, only to come back in the final 

At the beginning of the year it was necessary to recruit an almost entirely new team, 
five veterans having received their sheepskins the June before. There is not much to tell 
about the 193 3 golf season athletically, but socially it was a howling success. 

The first event of importance was the annual southern trip which began on Wednes- 
day, April 12, when school closed for the Easter vacation. Included in the party were 
Captain Troy, Manager Cadigan, Ed Kennedy, Roger Walsh and John Gramzow, the 
last named the chauffer of the expedition. The first stop was made in Newark that 
night and the second in Baltimore on Thursday night. Troy insisted on staying in and 
catching up on lost sleep, but the rest of the boys couldn't see it that way, and they 
finally convinced him to go out to a movie. Yea! Friday night the expedition reached 
Williamsburg, Va., where the first match was played, on the following day, with Wil- 
liam and Mary College. 

Easter Sunday dawned cold and rainy making the trip across state to Lexington any- 
thing but pleasant. Monday a match was played with Washington and Lee University; 
Wednesday, with University of Richmond; and Friday, with Catholic University at 
Washington. The boys must have had enough of the south, for that afternoon they left 
immediately for Boston, and did not stop driving until Saturday morning, when they 
once again enjoyed some home cooking. Not that they didn't eat on the trip. Down 
south they gobbled up everything in sight, so that Larry Cadigan, the only member of 
the intinerants who ate with anything approaching moderation, was forced to apologize 
continually for the unseemly conduct of his companions. 

Once back on native soil, the niblic wielders met Providence, Brown, and entertained 
Amherst, in which Troy beat Capt. Macoy of the visitors, 1 up. In the Brown match 
Ed Kennedy astounded the gallery with his brilliant iron play. Tufts College furnished 
the opposition on May 12, and then came a hurried trip to Hanover, where Chuck 
Conaty was forced to play two men. He acquitted himself nobly, however. 

The Holy Cross match at Bellevue ended the season. Roger Walsh was high scorer 
for the year.

Tennis Season 

ANOTHER traveling sport unit at the Heights was the tennis team. Led by Captain 
John Keiran and Manager George Love the "racketeers" headed south in two 
groups, the first of Keiran and Love, Walter Lyons and Montgomery Rhynne leaving on 
Wednesday April 12 at the beginning of the Easter vacation. Investigation later re- 
vealed that no matches had been scheduled until the following Monday, but that the 
early start had been made because of numerous social engagements. The second group 
of John Carr, Joe Corcoran, Mike Donelin and Herb Kenny left later in time to be on 
the scene for the first scheduled match. 

The first opponent was Western Maryland, but the boys were kept off the courts by 
a sweeping rain storm which made play impossible. Past records have shown that the 
Boston College tennis team need only depart for the land of sunshine on their annual 
trip, and Jupe Pluvius plays the part of the congenial, if somewhat wet, host. 

The lads finally swung into action on Tuesday in Williamsburg, Va., with William 
and Mary as the opponent. Rhynne captured the only match for the visitors, lack of 
practice being evident in the play of the Bostonese. Rain once again welcomed them in 
Durham, N. C, where the scheduled match with Duke was cancelled, but at Baltimore 
the sun and good fortune favored the itinerants long enough for them to eke out a close 
5-4 win over Loyola. Keiran won his match in easy fashion and then teamed with 
Walter Lyons to emerge victorious in the doubles, while John Carr, unsuccessful in the 
singles, formed a doubles comibination with Rhynne that decided the match in favor 
of the visitors. For a number of years, now, this Baltimore college has been defeated, 
they sometimes being the sole entry in the win column during the southern trip, and the 
racket-wielders have no intention of dropping this opponent. Wise boys. 

On the return to home soil, matches were lost to Brown, B. U., Tech and Springfield 
but these were balanced by wins over Northeastern, Conn. State, Bridgewater State 
Normal, Worcester Tech and Assumption College. The Providence and Holy Cross 
matches were rained out. 

Captain Keiran and John Carr were the two Senior members of the squad, both hav- 
ing been members of the varsity since their Sophomore year. Mike Donelin also played 
occasionally. These three were aided no little by Walter Lyons, Herb Kenny, Joe Cor- 
coran, E. Montgomery Rhynne and Frank Liddell who formed the strong nucleus for 
a team the following season.

Fencine: Year 

IF the Boston College fencing team had been making a tour of Europe, and in the 
course of their journey through France had incurred the wrath of a group of French 
nobles so that they were challenged to a duel, we shudder to think of the probable out- 
come. It is almost a certainty that five or six Boston College lads would never see that 
beloved institution of learning again. For their ability to tag the other fellow first was 
more or less of a minus quantity, and after all, this is the primary requisite if one would 
win fencing matches. 

We hasten to mention at this point that even the "great" Kenneth Kelley, famous 
orator and speech-making manager of this aggregation, noted for his ability in talking 
opposing managers into giving his charges $100 guarantees for their appearances, was 
at a loss when it came to aiding in the matches. The story is told about Kelley's attempt 
to distract one opponent by a long line of polysyllabic words, but he gave it up when 
he saw that his efforts had no effect. It was later shown that the youth was deaf and 

The leader and outstanding man on the team was Herb Kenny who was re-elected 
captain for the next season. His aides, John Sheehan, Allan McBride, Bill McDonald, 
and Frank Lambert were more or less unskilled in the art of fencing, but since they 
were mostly Juniors, they were much better the following season with a whole year's 
experience behind them. Henry Fitzgerald was the only Senior of the team, and though 
his loss was felt, the most promising group of Freshmen since the introduction of the 
sport was on hand to take his place and bid fair to give Boston College a fine team.

IN 193 3 the Boston College rifle team enjoyed one of the most successful seasons since 
its inauguration. No less than twenty-one telegraphic matches were held at the in- 
door range in the science building, and one shoulder-to-shoulder match with A Com- 
pany 101st Division of the National Guard. Two outdoor matches were held with 
Harvard University at their range in Woburn. 

Due to the fact that practically all the teams fired against were members of the 
R.O.T.C., the rifle team made a very creditable showing, winning a good average of 
their matches, and completing the season with a decisive victory over Holy Cross. 

Paul Shine of Junior was leader of the "gunners." He did a fine job in making a 
good unit out of practically all new men. Frank Lambert also of Junior was manager, 
and was awarded the captaincy for the next season. 

Bob Jordan, track captain, found time, after his track duties were over, to practice 
at the range, to the extent that he was awarded the title of the outstanding member of 
the team. He was first place man in several matches. 

Charles Ryan of Senior, a letter-man on the first rifle team at Boston College, re- 
turned to the Heights from California, the land from which folks are supposed never 
to return, and aided no little in coaching the team as well as in helping to win several

DURING the term of 1932-33 the Student Council placed itself in its rightful 
position in student government. Acting under the direction of its president, John 
Keiran, and with the co-operation of the dean's office, the body revised its constitution 
and revamped its membership so that it was finally a representative body. Only the 
larger or more active undergraduate societies were permitted membership. This meant 
the dropping of representatives of several of the organizations, but it made for a more 
active body. The group became far less unwieldy, and able to act more swiftly and 
decisively. Results of the change proved gratifying. 

As was the custom, the council conducted the formal welcome of the school to the 
incoming class. The year's Freshman Day was held just before the Thanksgiving Holi- 
days and included elections, Freshman sports, a dinner, entertainment and a smoker. 
The banner of the class of 'thirty-six was presented to the incoming president, John 
Maguire. The Chairman of the Day, acting for the Council, was James M. Connolly, 
President of the Fulton, who was assisted by Joseph Brennan, Peter Chesnulevich, 
Mathias O'Malley and John Moynahan. 

Following the precedent established the year before, two outstanding Seniors were 
chosen honorary members of the council. They were George F. Lawlor, Manager of 
Track, and Francis T. Maguire, Editor of the Sub Turri.

THE class of 'thirty-three takes particular pride in the part it played in reorganizing 
the Senior- Junior Sodality, for it was in our Senior year that the initial steps 
toward this re-establishment took place. 

The moderator was Rev. Francis J. Coyne, S.J., who proved to be an excellent direc- 
tor, and one who worked unceasingly in the interests of the project. Robert F. Riley and 
Charles F. Donovan, the student officers, labored constantly and successfully in their 
effort to make this one of the most active of extra-curricular activities. 

Throughout the year weekly meetings were held, and at each one a sermon on the 
Mass was given. Thus from meeting to meeting the progress of the Mass was followed, 
and regardless of what any of us may have thought he knew about this subject, all 
benefited greatly from these lectures. The talks, besides having great intellectual and 
moral value individually, unified the year's work. 

The crowning point of the Sodality's activities came on May 15th, when the recep- 
tion was held in the College chapel. At this time one hundred and twenty-five mem- 
bers were formally received into the Sodality of Mary. Mass was celebrated by the 
Reverend Moderator. The sermon was given by Rev. Leonard Feeney, S.J., noted author 
and lecturer, after which Rev. Louis J. Gallagher, S.J., President of the College, awarded 
displomas, officially receiving the members into the body. Sodality Office Books were 
given to all.

'■■Intercollegiate Debaters. 


THE record of the men of our class in the Fulton may -well be one of the happiest 
of collegiate memories for the class, the society, and the men -wrho participated in 
the intercollegiate meetings. That record of thirteen intercollegiate and fwelve lecture 
debates is also earnest evidence of the untiring work of the moderators, Mr. Ernest 
Foley, S.J., and Mr. Austin Devenny, S.J. 

The first debate of the season was with Oxford University. James M. Connolly, then 
president of the society, and Charles F. Donovan, later president, represented the Fulton. 
In a discussion of the international war debt situation Boston College was returned 
victorious by a unanimous decision. The "War Debt question, being of prime interest, 
was adopted as the usual subject of debate. In fact, Charles W. O'Brien discussed this 
question in four intercollegiate contests and in two lecture debates. He and his col- 
leagues argued it successfully against St. Thomas' College, New Hampshire, Dayton 
and Providence. 

After the one with Oxford, the next major debate was with Fordham. Charles 
Donovan, James Connolly and Robert Glennon journeyed to New York and defeated 
Fordham in a discussion of the International Munitions question. After their victory 
the trio proceeded to the College of New Rochelle. Royally received, they met the sad 
and sole defeat of the season at the hands of three young ladies of that college who 
were more than excellent speakers. The subject of the debate was supposed to be the 
emergence of women from the home. The Fulton proved that chivalry is not dead. 

Returning to Boston, Donovan, Connolly and Glennon met and defeated the rep- 
resentatives of Harvard College before a distinguished audience. Three of the justices 
of the Massachusetts Superior Court acted as the board of judges. 

The other intercollegiate debates were with Florida, Maine, Bucknell, Pennsylvania 
State and Bates. 

In the annual Fulton Prize debate Charles W. O'Brien was adjudged the best 
speaker of the evening and was awarded the Fulton Medal. 

The closing ceremony of the year took place at the annual banquet at the Philo- 
matheia Chalet. Charms were awarded to those Seniors who had participated in inter- 
collegiate contests.

THE 1932-33 season of the Marquette Debating Society under the direction of Mr. 
William F. Finneran, S.J., was one of activity and progress. The society engaged 
in three intercollegiate debates, one with Bates on the subject of war debts in which 
there was no decision, one with Georgetown on the Muscle Shoals project and a final 
debate with Keene Normal School on the Manchurian question. In the latter two 
debates the Marquette was unsuccessful. 

For the second consecutive year a Freshman was awarded the Gargan Medal, the 
winner being Mark Dalton, '36. Others participating were Raymond Belliveau, Law- 
rence Riley, John J. Murphy, John G. Fallon and Donald Floyd.

HISTORY was being made in 1932-3 3 right under the patrician noses of the 
members of the Musical Clubs, and fortunate certainly were they who belonged 
to this body at the time. Under the active and far-seeing direction of Rev. Leo J. 
Gilleran, S.J., the faculty adviser, and of Mr. James Ecker, the director, this organiza- 
tion reached one of the highest peaks of attainment in its history. And this improve- 
ment has still gone on. 

In the fall the Band — whose members merit much praise — had a successful year. 
Then in February the Glee Club and Orchestra began the season with a concert in 
Lowell, which was followed two days later by one in the New Bedford Hotel of that 
city. Several other concerts were given, including those at Weston, Newton, Water- 
town and Whitman. 

The joint concert given in conjunction with the Musical Clubs of Holy Cross 
College, an annual affair and usually one of the highest points of the year's work, was 
held in Jordan Hall on April 30th, 1933. Opening with Gericke's "Chorus of Homage," 
the combined glee clubs then sang Blockx' "Serenade de Milenka." After a number 
of selections had been given by the individual groups and by soloists, the Glee Clubs again 
joined voices for Gibbs' "Song of Progress." The evening was brought to an end with 
the singing of the college songs.

i i C^ MALLEST and most exclusive organization in the school," its secretary has 
N-' called the Press Club, and there is none of us able to deny it. Made up of those 
students who write up Boston College affairs in the various Boston dailies, its members 
are faced with the difficult problem of getting the news without stepping on any 
administrative toes. They report major and minor sports events, the activities of the 
many societies, talks given by members of the faculty, and all these matters must be 
handled in such a way as to extract material of news value while keeping in mind the 
nature of just what the authorities want released. If Fr. So-and-So's lecture for the 
Philomatheia Club is released an hour too soon, the speech is useless, if an hour too late, 
it is no longer newsworthy. John X. delicately suggests that he would like to get his 
picture in the paper, and must be just as delicately refused. Far from being the hard- 
boiled quidnunc of popular belief, each newspaperman had to be at the same time a 
saint, sceptic, diplomat and smoother of ruffled feathers. 

In 1932-33 the success the members had in living up to the requirements of their 
work was unusually successful. And they wrote fully, skillfully, about the doings of 
their college-mates, not about themselves.

ONCE again the Business Club proved itself to be one of the most progressive and 
profitable extra-curricular organizations at the College. Under the leadership of 
its dynamic president. Ken Kelley, the club had a very active and successful season. As 
was the custom in previous years, leading economists, financiers and pub'ic officials 
addressed the group, indicating the opportunities for the college man in their fields. 

Large audiences attended the meetings and there was a jovial and festive air about 
the staid old Fulton Room when the Business Club met there and solved most of the 
problems of industry and finance. 

Frank Desmond, the secretary, gave generously of his time and eiforts for the good 
of the organization, and he was greatly responsible for bringing in a number of the 
lecturers. The speakers and talks presented during the season were: 

Congressman Joseph F. O'Connell, '93 — "Your Priceless Heritage;" Mr. Magruder 
C. Maury — "The Field of Journalism;" Mr. Arthur L. Norton — "Hotel Management;" 
Dr. Francis E. McCarthy — "The Medical Profession;" Mr. Charles J. Fox — "Our 
Municipal Finances;" Hon. Frederick W. Mansfield — "Laws and Lawyers;" Mr. Charles 
G. Birmingham — "Retail Store Management;" Mr. William H. O'Brien — "Forty-Three 
Years of Public Life;" Mr. Edward B. Donlan — "Technocracy;" and District Attorney 
William J. Foley — "Crime, Its Causes and Consequences." 


Dramatic Society

A GATHERING hush in the auditorium — a frantic whisper backstage, "Lights. 
Lights! Lights!" — cold perspiration penetrating grease-paint on faces all but 
hideous at close-range — such was the meat and drink of members of one of our oldest 
and most important organizations, the Dramatic Society. 

The presentation of Captain Applejack was the chief work of the society in 1932-33, 
and considering the difficulty in giving a play re-written for an all-male cast, it was 
eminently successful. Besides the work of members of our class touched upon on the 
following page, mention should be made here of the commendable playing of those in 
other classes. Charles Daly, Arthur Sullivan, Raymond Belliveau, Louis Mercier, Edward 
Merrick, all Bad Guys, were excellent. Plans were also made for the Spring production 
of a Shakespearean play, but since Dick Whiftington was given by the class of 1934, 
presentation of a third play was deemed inadvisable. Dick Whiftington, though not a 
Dramatic Club project, gained much from the active support of members of the society. 

Un-applauded but invaluable to the club was the work of Mr. James A. Walsh, S.J., 
and Mr. Joseph P. Shanahan, S.J., moderators, and of John Curley and John Hanrahan, 
harassed Business Manager and Stage Manager respectively.

Good luck!" 

On Monday and Tuesday evenings, December 19th and 20th, 1932, the Dramatic 
Society presented Walter Hacket's Captain Applejack at the Repertory Theatre. If the 
play had become a trifle dated, color, and certainly life, were furnished by the skillful 
playing of the cast. 

As the bored barrister, Maurice Allison, and later as the swashbuckling Captain 
Applejack, Frank Mulligan was at his vigorous best. Care, precision, sweeping vitality, 
marked the interpretation of his role. Leo Flynn as Frank Fulton and John Hanrahan 
as the ever-solicitous Harold were excellent, as always, but the nature of their roles 
made it impossible for the former to top his brilliant work in Beau Bninnnel and Othello, 
or for the latter to compete with his hilarious Bunthorp in Dick Whittington. As the 
eccentric Uncle Jasper, Joseph Brennan for at least the third time cleverly donned the 
rheumatics of an old man, while Ken Kelley in his perennial part of a butler was 
superb. Anything but negligible were: (1) the get-ups of Ralph Ward and Frank 
Maguire, pirates, (2) the famous threat in one performance of being caught "like a 
trap in a rat."

IN 1932-33 the French Academy once again added to its progressive record of achieve- 
ment and presented a private and public program worthy of the highest commenda- 
tion. And again the society's attainments redounded to the eminent credit of its 
moderator, Rev. Paul de Mangeleere, S.J., without whose familiar presence the society 
would have seemed very strange. The president of the group, Marcus Lewis, who con- 
ducted his office with enthusiasm and endeavor, deserved great praise. 

During the year members of the academy presented several lectures. Among them 
were "L'Academie Francaise from Richelieu to the Present," "Three French Women of 
Literary Note, Mme. de Maintenon, Mme. de la Fayette and Mme. de Sevigne," and 
"Three Theologians of France, Fenelon, Bossuet and Bourdaloue." John Hanrahan pre- 
sented an interesting talk on Mont-St. -Michel which he had visited the previous summer. 

The outstanding feature of the year was the French Debate presented at the Philo- 
matheia Club before a large audience distinguished by the presence of His Eminence, 
William Cardinal O'Connell of the class of 1881. The discussion centered on the 
feasibility of a dictatorship in the United States. The negative with Gabriel Ryan and 
Leo Leveille was victorious over the affirmative with Irvin Brogan and Clarence Boucher. 

The annual Spring declamation of the academy, with the leading members partici- 
pating, closed the season. 

Ipanisli Academy 




John A. Conway, president 

John J. Fogarty, Vice-President 

Francis L. Curran, Secretary-Treasurer 

ONLY ten per cent of the students at the College select Spanish for their modern 
language course, and yet the Spanish Academy in 1932-3 3 proved to be one of 
the most interesting of all extra-curricular activities. The extent to which the students 
co-operated in the work was remarkable, and satisfying to the officers who were work- 
ing continually for the interests of the body. 

The moderator, Mr. Frederick S. Conlin, and the president, John A. Conway, worked 
together in arranging a program of lectures which would at the same time increase the 
members' fluency in the language and stimulate their interest in Hispanic culture. 
Several phases of Spanish and Spanish-American life and history were discussed, some- 
times in Spanish, sometimes in English. For example, at one lecture in March Mr. Conlin 
spoke about the antiquity and significance of the universities of Spain and South 
America, giving especial attention to the University of Salamanca. And at the follow- 
ing meeting the president and two other members of the academy gave papers deahng 
with various aspects of Spanish university life. Then a number of matters of historical 
importance, such as the question of Columbus' birthplace, were interestingly discussed. 

Some of the most enjoyable hours the members spent at the academy were when Mr. 
Conlin gave impromptu talks relating some of his adventures in Spanish-speaking coun- 
tries. To him much praise is due for the lively interest the academy engendered during 
the season.

Military Club 


Paul J. Shine, Presidetif 

Frank P. Lambert, Vice-President 

Fabian L. Rourke, Secretary-Treasurer 

IN 1927 the reorganization of the C.M.T.C. Club brought into existence the present 
Miltary Club. Faculty recognition was given in 1928. From that time on, members 
of the club worked steadily to promote a lively interest in military affairs at the College, 
to establish a Reserve Officers' Training Corps unit and to sponsor rifle and fencing 
teams at University Heights. 

In 1932-33 the club's activity was mostly informal. While the club as an organized 
body was not as active as it had been other years, it still benefited its members greatly 
through the informal discussions that were always going on among its members. 

The aid which the club gave the Rifle Team was one of the outstanding services of 
the year. There is no coach for the team, so members of the upper classes, including 
Bob Jordan and Charles Ryan of thirty-three, stepped into the breach and instructed 
the lower classmen. This unselfish service was of immeasurable value in bringing the 
Rifle Team up to its high standing. The team of the years of 1932 and 1933 were cer- 
tainly among the best in College history. It competed with organizations which be- 
longed to the R.O.T.C. and defeated very many of them. The rifle team, from being 
our representatives in a very minor sport, became a unit of considerable importance 
and much prestige. 

Mr. Blake, S.J. 


Mr. Hugh H. Blake, S.J., Moderator 

James J. Foley, Secretary 

IN 1931 Rev. Martin P. Harney, S.J., organized a society for those students who 
were interested in history. In honor of Ludwig von Pastor, the foremost Vatican 
historian who had recently died, the newly-formed body was called the Von Pastor 
Historical Society. Rapidly its popularity grew, to such an extent that in 193 3 some 
of the lectures had to be held in the Library Auditorium. 

Mr. Hugh Blake, S.J., who succeeded Fr. Harney as moderator, together with James 
Foley, secretary, planned for 193 3 a program of great interest. Among the speakers 
were Fr. Harney, who discussed modern religious sects, Mr. Magruder C. Maury, Pro- 
fessor of Journalism, who spoke about Japan and the reasons compelling her to con- 
quer Korea and Manchuria, and Mr. Charles D. Maginnis, architect and designer of 
the College buildings, who treated of European architecture. 

Rev. J. F. X. Murphy, S.J., beloved History prof, lectured for the society as he had 
the previous year, and once again he proved one of the greatest drawing cards of the 
season. On Monday, February 6th, he gave a memorable talk, "The Causes of the World 
War," during which he flayed the American press for its publication of false War 
propaganda. The following week he continued in this field, scoring particularly the 
ostensibly respectable newspapers. In May he again addressed the Society, presenting 
facts other than those popularly known about Tammany Hall.

Ethics Academy 



John B. Carr, 'President 

J. Raymond Callen, Vice-President 

John J. Fitzgerald, Secretary 
Ralph F. Ward, Censor 

THAT Ethics is by no means a science whose use ends when we close our text books 
was brought out by the work of the Ethics Academy. Founded in the fall of 1931 
by Mr. David Twomey, S.J., for the purpose of showing some of the applications of 
ethical principles to daily life, the academy became one of the leading extra-curricular 
activities at the College. For this no little credit is due the wise, vital direction of its 

Meetings were held each Tuesday afternoon, when actual events were discussed from 
an ethical standpoint. By treating of real cases the realization was brought home to 
members of the academy that Ethics is a practical, not a theoretical science. In this way 
the work of the society was of great value in supplementing the classroom work of 
Fr. Corrigan and Fr. O'Connell in the same study. 

Several lectures were delivered by Mr. Twomey, and discussion from the floor fol- 
lowed each. The nature of mental reservations, the principle of the double effect and 
similar matters were discussed in detail. Other speakers, as Rev. J. F. X. Murphy, S.J., 
who discussed religious tolerance, and Rev. Leonard Feeney, S.J., the well-known writer, 
were presented to the body. 

Meetings were always of unusual interest. Members found them not only very 
profitable, but enjoyable as well. 

Economics Academy 

Mr. Fox, S.J. 



Leonard A. Carr, Executive Chairman John W. Mahaney, Recording Secretary 

Paul J. Shine, V ice-Chairman Mr. Raymond Fox, S.J., Moderator 

TO accommodate the enormous interest which had recently arisen in regard to 
economic affairs, the Economics Academy was organized in the winter of our 
Senior year. Plans were made to discuss at length problems which were felt to be causes 
of unrest in the world. The subject of War Debts, then of great moment, was treated 
perhaps in most detailed fashion, but the academy went as deeply as it could into other 
matters, as International Banking, Public Utilities, Taxation, Real Estate. 

The system of discussion used was the round-table method. Meetings were held 
every other Friday afternoon and in preparation for one some members would investi- 
gate different phases of one question. Their findings they would then present to the 
other members at the meetings. For example, at the meeting of February 10th when 
War Debts were discussed, "The Young Plan," "Moratorium" and "Economic Implica- 
tions of the Debt Problem" were the phases treated. Similarly at the meeting of March 
10th the Tariff was studied. After a history of the question was given, the talks pre- 
sented were "Production," "Free Trade," "Do We Need a Tariff Commission?" "Non- 
partisan Standpoint," "Foreign Affairs" and "Aspects of the Tariff." In this way 
members were able to obtain a comprehensive knowledge of the questions considered. 

The Economics Academy filled a serious want and members found it of great 
assistance in understanding the tangled condition of present-day finance.

Itylus Year 

ONE November morning in 1932 startled members of the class saw a strange 
object lying on each of their chairs. And only when they read the heading on the 
cover did they realize that it was the Stylus, for doffed was her age-old dress of maroon 
and gold and in its place a fetching outfit of red-brown and grey. Brand new, simple 
type glowed on the cover and lily-white (no longer saffron) pages hid within. 

"I am shocked. Disillusioned" began the first prose article, and "I have an eyeache. I 
shall probably have an eyeache for a long time" began the second. But readers, if 
shocked, were far from disillusioned by the work they found, and the large, clear print, 
the excellent typography, delighted even the most sensitive eyes. Cornelius Dalton's "I 
Vote" was a fine, indignant protest against popular selfishness. Editor Brennan again 
directed the Arts Department, bringing to it his wide knowledge, excellent taste, own 
style. (Quotation: "Queer doin's at the Museum these days.") "Amateur Seamen," an 
interesting and quaintly styled recuerdo of the sea signed "Mehevi O'Rioner" also bore 
Brennan thumb-prints, but topping his other works was the first installment of an 
authoritative discussion, "Jazz, Past and Present." 

This was concluded in the December Stylus. Quite different was "Pre-Raphaelitism — 
Dante Rosetti" by Edward McCrensky, an article whose worth caused us to regret that 
the author did not write more. "Cads Come from Boston" by Francis Maguire was 
amusing, if slight. 

"A Neo-Scholastic Revival?" asked James M. Connolly the following month, answer- 
ing (Mr. Connolly was a debater) with a distinction: "Reasonably — yes; but in all 
probability — no." "Are newspapers giving their readers the news?" Cornelius Dalton 
demanded in "The Press and Progress," answering negatively. "Joris-Karl Huysmans" 
by the editor lacked nothing in judgment if it was a labor of love. "Let George and 
Abe Talk" insisted Vincent J. Burke the next month, condemning "the half-dead 
Americans who think that national ideals are unimportant in the course of national 
progress." James M. Connolly returned with "John Galsworthy," a brief, wise estimate, 
and Francis Maguire with "Emeralds for the Mermaid," a tale of a would-be suicide. 
"Why Dance?" by the ubiquitous "Mehevi O'Rioner" caused something of a sensation 
among followers of the delicate diversion who saw their pet restaurant tricks, among 
others, ruthlessly made public. The same author's "In Praise of Pipes" in the following 
issue was equally mellow, much less disturbing. 

Extremely well written was Charles F. Donovan's "Newman's Prose Rhythm" in 
the last number of the year. The award of three prizes, — an embroidered baseball bat, a 
subscription to the Emmanuel Ethos, a Venetian glass football — to worthy college 
publications was announced. 

Any discussion of the Stylus is incomplete which fails to mention: the wisdom of 
Mr. David Twomey, S.J., its popular moderator; the excellent work done by lower 
classmen; the first prizes in the Jesuit Literary Association Contest won by Editor 
Brennan for his essay, "Joris-Karl Huysmans," and by Steven Fleming for his poem, 
"The Werewolf;" the Stylus Exhibit of reproductions of modern French paintings; 
the ads.

April 1 3 tk" April i2.tli 

FROM the issue of April 13th, 1932 to that of April 12th, 1933 with its somewhat 
unusual headlines ("Crew Practice on Reservoir for Holidays," "Chinese Club En- 
gages Tong Next Meeting — -Nobody Attended the Last Meeting Save the Speakers") 
John Curley and the other officials directed the Heights through one of its most mem- 
orable years. The appearance of the pages, the matter, the presentation of the news, 
were adjudged by those familiar with the work to be among the best in collegiate 
journalism. During this time every member of the managing board belonged to our 
class, so we justly feel that we have a right to be proud of the Heights' progress. 

In the first place the Heights looked good. The balanced pages, the smooth paper, the 
carefully arranged photographs were pleasing to the eye. There were several photo- 
graphs in each issue, and if it is true that one picture is worth a thousand words in 
telling a story, much was told wordlessly. The news stories were well done — accurately 
and clearly. George Love was news editor. In colleges there is a great deal of dull 
routine news which is apt to clutter up the publications, and it is to the everlasting 
credit of the lords of the Heights that they so handled this matter that we could — and 
usually did — read each issue from first page to last. The scramble for copies each Wed- 
nesday noon was sufficient indication of their interest. 

The editorials were mature, thoughtful and timely. Because editorials are apt to be 
considered representative of student opinion and because they are likely to set the tone 
of any publication, considerable responsibility rests on the shoulders of editorial-writers. 
On those of Vincent J. Burke and his assistants it rested well. Under Larry Cadigan the 
sports section was excellent. He wrote the column, "Through the Eagle's Eye," and his 
ability to state honestly, clearly, knowingly, just what was going on was remarkable. 
George Lawlor's column, "Cinder Dust," was one of the finest features during the 
track season, and Jack Keiran's "Forecast" at football time was surprisingly accurate. 

Features proved popular. James M. Connolly was feature editor. Chris Sullivan's 
"Intercollegian" was ever enjoyable, and Vin Burke's "The Whatcha Column" gained 
the praise of no less a person than Neal O'Hara of the Traveler. Joe Paul's "Tabloid" 
is mentioned last only because it was probably the most important. Part chatter-column, 
part editorial, part just plain news, it was one of the first things read in each issue. 

The business staff deserves a page by itself. That the Heights could be published at 
all, not to say so handsomely, was largely the result of the efforts of Kenneth Kelley, 
the business manager, and of his assistants, among them Joseph Ford and Albert 

The Stib Tiirri, as an organ of the class, extends its sincere if rather belated con- 
gratulations to the members of the managing board for their work. Also it gives its 
thanks for all the courtesies granted it during the year. Of its association with the 
Heights it feels proud.

STATISTICS are lacking, but we should judge that about half the giggling, 
chortUng, guffawing, heard during our Junior Week was occasioned by the junior 
Vic. To Editor Joseph Brennan and his assistants praise of all sorts was given, and it 
was all deserved. "Heights Reviewer Doffs Hat to Junior Editors" was a headline in 
that paper, Feb. 4, 1932, and despite inclement February winds many other heads were 
bared in agreement. 

The first thing to attract attention was the crisp cover design. Inside the covers the 
type used for headings was a fine modern Sans Serif style, such as was afterwards used 
in the Stylus. The announcement of the winners of a mythical motto contest was made, 
first prize going to the Physics Department for the motto "Don't buy any gold bricks 
on this one, gentlemen." Honorary mention went to the Stylus for "Be Medieval," to 
the Philosophy Department for "Subjectively Yes, Objectively No," and finally to the 
Bellarmine Society for "It's Ludicrous." Then as eloquent indication that the class was 
not neglecting its Junior philosophy, a thesis was brilliantly proved. The thesis: "Not 
only is prosperity just around the corner, but the present depression is only a figment of 
the mind." If subsequent years seem to have belied this conclusion, the fault isn't in 
the Pic's reasoning. 

The page devoted to "Society, 'In Peach Georgette and Full Fig' " which followed 
was one of the outstanding features of the publication. Satirizing some of the foibles of 
metropolitan Boston dailies, French phrases were employed as obnoxiously as possible. 
"Members of the exclusive Rotunda Club (who can be seen chaque jour occupying the 
cozy benches of the smart Rotunda Clubroom) are planning a dansant to be held at 
the clubroom," began the first announcement. "Heading the impressive list of patrons 
is Mr. Billy Frazier. Music will be furnished by Merrick's Melodians." Plans for a dinner 
dance to be jetee by Mr. Philip Dooley and for Stylus tableaux graced this section. 

The page of (imaginary) letters to the editor, "Advice to the Lovelorn, Embarrassing 
Moments, Parent and Child Department, Beauty Hints," contained a touching note 
from Joseph Dolan ("Suddenly the professor said, 'Mr. Dolan, leave the room.' Did my 
face get red!") and a delicate piece allegedly from Luke Petrocelli. "I like to take long 
walks, and many times, while trudging to school, I stop to admire the new-fallen snow 
sparkling in the sun, and to see the track made by some dear little rabbit. ... I hope 
you'll answer my letter," it said in part. "P.S. — Aren't people and things lovely?" 

The sports section and the socials page were handled excellently. In a Who's Who we 
finally learned the pronunciation of John Brougham's name ("Broham, Broucham, 
Bruggam, and Brum"). And few of us could disagree with the toasts proposed, among 
them the one to Professor Arthur Evans, "for not inquiring too closely into the objec- 
tive validity of out Weight experiments last year," and the one to Christopher Conway, 
"for bringing a dog, a poor, defenceless dog, into a Greek class."

A Note to tte Reader 

READER, you've waited a long time for this book. But here it is. Months, years, of 
waiting and of strange rumors are ended on your part. As for us, gone, thank 
heaven, is the time of replying to that ubiquitous query, "How about the book?" with 
the somewhat strained nonchalance of "Book? . . . What book?" And once again we 
can come across references to molasses, snails and Rip Van Winkle without feeling 
unduly self-conscious. For our delay we make no excuses, but we do — and this is the 
■ least you deserve — sincerely, contritely, apologize. 

Still there have been compensations, and because we think they are important — and 
because we feel less uncomfortable discussing these — we should like to explain them. 

For one thing, this book can now have the attitude of the reader. This is an alumni 
book, written for alumni as long as they are alumni, although it is about their Senior 
days. It can share their memories, some of their mellowness, perhaps even their recent 
but by this time almost resigned amazement at the swiftness of time. And facing an 
uncertain future, it can, like them, relish the permanence of the past. Some of the 
past we have tried to record here, and these years have enabled us to dwell upon it, 
perhaps not more satisfactorily, but at any rate more lingeringly. In our work we have, 
of course, studied the year books of scores of institutions and it has occurred to us that 
several of these were after all but handsome tombstones to departed years. Making one 
of these we have tried to avoid. We believe that our years spent at Boston College were, 
above all, alive years. Vigorous, fresh life flourished under those towers, and if only the 
tiniest fraction of it has been transferred to this book, we shall be satisfied. In time to 
come when we shall laugh at these strange collars and ask how in the world anyone 
could play football in those uniforms, if a spark of life still glows within this volume, 
it will have served its purpose. 

Our means are, perhaps, obvious. We've tried to suppress the I-take-my-pen-in-hand 
style of writing, so common in publications like this, as much as possible. If roughness 
has something resulted, we think the sacrifice of smoothness justified. The division 
pages were planned to arouse amusement, not melancholia. Cover, borders, type, the 
large "bled" photographs, — all were planned to be not only pleasing but vital. Whether 
or not we have accomplished any of our aims, it is for you to determine. 

To all of you who have aided in making this book, we extend our warmest thanks. 
And to all who have waited patiently for it, our gratitude for your forbearance. We 
found real pleasure in preparing it for you, and hope you will find some in reading it. 

But now, suddenly feeling very light, we push aside pencils, proofs, photographs. 
And if you see us one of these days walking along Tremont Street with our ears dis- 
creetly cocked, you'll know it's because we're hoping to hear someone pay that supreme, 
if somewhat extravagant, compliment, "It was worth waiting for!"

Philomatheia Club 

IT is impossible for us to estimate the great amount of good which has been done for 
Boston College by the Philomatheia Club, the self-sacrificing devotion of whose 
members we of the class of 'thirty-three can never forget. "Philomatheia" means 
"friends of learning," and the happy manner in which the members have fostered the 
interests of our college has proven that they have more than lived up to the claims of 
their name. Boston College is, relatively, a fairly young institution, and it is conceiv- 
able that only those who come some hundreds of years after us will be able to appreciate 
fully the value of the care these unselfish women have given the College in its early 
and awkward years. 

The support which the club has given is definitely practical. In the fall of our Senior 
year, for example, it turned over twelve hundred dollars to the College as the proceeds 
of a party given the preceding Spring at the Jesuit Rest House, Bellarmine Manor. 
Moreover it has given the Siib Turri of each class the funds from the Philomatheia Ball 
and sometimes more. The present volume received the large and seemingly heaven-sent 
sum of five hundred dollars, and here wishes to take the opportunity of again extending 
its thanks to Mrs. Vincent P. Roberts, the president, to Rev. Daniel J. Lynch, the 
spiritual director, and to all who were instrumental in making this gift. 

Besides all this, the society has from time to time given the use of its attractive club- 
house to various activities within the College. In 193 3 the Philomatheia Chalet housed 
the French Academy's oratorical contest on the fifth of May, and on the following 
Thursday it was the scene of the annual banquet of the Fulton Debating Society. 

In Mrs. Roberts, the president of the club, the College has found a loyal and wise 
ally. Leader of several activities, the force behind countless projects which have greatly 
benefited the school, she has been a friend to all Boston College men. Mrs. Roberts is 
the donor of the Gold Medal which is annually given the winner of the Fulton Prize 
Debate and which was won in 193 3 by Charles W. O'Brien of the class. 

The Philomatheia Ball, the reception to the Senior class given each year by the club, 
was held in the main ballroom of the Copley Plaza on Friday evening, January 13th, 
and was everywhere conceded to be one of the largest and most beautiful ever given. 
It was held in the form of a supper dance. If any members of the class present had any 
uneasiness about Friday the thirteenth, it was permanently dispelled that evening. 
Charles F. Stiles was chairman, and Mrs. WiUiam Bannon co-chairman, of the affair. 
In the maroon and gold decorated ballroom approximately three hundred and fifty 
couples danced to the popular music of the Sheraton Room Orchestra and of Bill Boyle's 
Orchestra. At midnight, amid showers of streamers and confetti hurled from the bal- 
cony, the grand march took place, and, something of a wonder for grand marchers, it 
functioned with utter smoothness. 

All who attended the ball were unanimous in its praise. 

One of the most important steps taken in the club's history was when a new body, 
the Junior Philomatheia Club, was organized. As is the case with the senior body, the 
purposes of this group also are to aid Boston College interests. To Miss Lucille O'Malley 
and Miss Patricia Gavin and to the other officers we are very glad to extend our thanks 
for what was done both while we of 'thirty-three were at the College and afterwards.

If it was only for its part in producing Dick Whittingdon the Junior Philomatheia 
merits the highest acclaimu As far as we know, nothing of the same nature ever done 
before in the name of the College can compare with the magnificent production of 
this musical extravaganza by Mrs. Larz Anderson and Grace Warner Gulesian which 
was given in the Opera House on February 14th and 15 th, 1933. The care given this 
undertaking, with its many scenes, its several choruses, its hundreds of characters, was 
extraordinary. This care was evident when we were privileged to see the splendid per- 
formances, and we are not misusing the adjective when we say that the entire produc- 
tion was stupendous. All concerned with the venture worked nobly, and the fine 
courage of Miss Virginia Grimes, the leading lady, who carried on in her difficult role 
despite the greatest personal bereavement at the time, was indicative of the high spirit 
in which the whole project was carried out. 

The Philomatheia Club — Senior and Junior — has done much for the College. Hours, 
years, perhaps lives, have been devoted by these loyal women to the College's interests, 
and we are the sons of Boston College. Let us hope that in our own way we may be 
able to help show them that their sacrifices have not been in vain.

The Freshmen at Sandy Burr 

(May 29, 1930) 

Of course, all the smart Boston College 
people were at the long awaited dansant 
held hier soir at the exclusive Sandy Burr 
Country Club, run by those very am- 
bitious young creatures of '33. It rained 
dreadfully, but do you think that spoiled 
the fun? Not at all. Preceding the party, 
there was a perfect whirl of dinners, and 
everyone arrived at the Club in the gay- 
est of humor. Everybody was so lovely 
that it would be mean to give names. 
But we just must say that we spied 
charming Chris Conway, one of the sea- 
son's most popular debutantes, in very 
good company. We also noticed the love- 
ly Oakie O'Connor, who was being con- 
stantly cut in on. And what do you sup- 
pose vivacious Leo Flynn had in his 
pocket? A silver pheasant! But he is so 
good-looking, one just can't be cross with 
him. And everybody SCREAMED when 
some little cut-up put out the lights. 
(We think it was black-eyed Charlie 

Sophomore Promaiing 
AT THE Somerset 

(April 24,1931) 

All society turned out en bloc to at- 
tend the wonderful affaire held at the 
exclusive Hotel Somerset by the Sopho- 
mores last Friday night. We really could- 

n't begin to tell you who were there, 
for practically everybody in '3 3 was 
present with his handsome escort. Bart 
Grady, who played at so many debutante 
parties, was dreamily waving his stick to 
the dreamy rhythm of the orchestra, and 
we saw dreamy-eyed Johnnie Moynahan 
who had his hands full with his good- 
looking Trahcia. We don't know tvhat 
makes Johnnie so popular. During the 
evening's course, everyone had a good 
laugh when somebody threw a silver 
thing that looked like a flattened-out 
thermos bottle at the pianist, knocking 
him hors de combat for the evening. We 
afterwards saw curly-haired Joe Dolan's 
stalwart escort smilingly shake a reprov- 
ing finger under his chubby little nose. 
And of course, after the danse everyone 
bundled down avec beaucoup de hate to 
the exclusive Vielle France for some 
stimulating crackers and milk. 

To Repertory 
for Beau Brummel 

(February 8, 1932) 

How society does love a risque farce! 
Certainly the shrieks of laughter that 
greeted the sophisticated lines from the 
B. C. Junior League play Beau Brummel 
staged last Monday night at the Reper- 
tory Theatre gave ample proof that the 
younger set have little en concorde with 
the older generation. We happened to 
run back-stage to the make-up room, 
and we chatted for a bit with sweet little 

Frank Mulligan who blushed so prettily 
when we discovered him in his scanties! 
Frankie's favorite color seemed to be 
pale lavender. We enjoyed the play im- 
mensely, especially petite Steve Fleming's 
scene (everybody knows that sunny- 
voiced slip of a creature) as the French 
landlord in the third act. 

Junior Prom 

(February 5, 19} 2) 

It was GORGEOUS! The exclusive 
Somerset was thronged with the gayest 
crowd we have ever seen, — beautiful 
gowns, lovely debbies, immaculately 
groomed companions, colored lights . . . 
everywhere . . . everything was lit beau- 
tifully. Handsome Fletcher Henderson 
and his delightful orchestra furnished 
the soft insinuating music. We were con- 
siderably amused to see charming Joe 
Paul struck playfully in the face by a 
debutante-usher taking tickets at the 
door. Of course, Joe wasn't trying to 
crash, for he had his ticket in his pocket 
all the time; but he just loves to tease 
everyone. George Love was chairman of 
course, and we couldn't take our eyes off 
him, he had grown so lovely in the past 
two years. We also noticed sparkling-eyed 
Jack Keiran asking his escort if she didn't 
think Billy Sullivan was such a dear. 
And we saw appealing Bucky Warren 
who was a dream in purple velvet. As 
we were leaving we caught a glimpse of 
dainty Luke Petrocelli with one of the 
season's most popular buds, Maurie 
Whalen. And what do you think they 
were doing? They were having a b-rping 
contest. Luke claimed he could b-rp the 
louder, but Maurie insisted that he could 
get more b-rps to the minute than could 
Luke. We just had to tear ourselves 

Sandy Burr Once More 
(May 27, 1932) 

Wouldn't you think that a class might 
get tired of having their summer dan- 
sants at the same place year after year? 
Usually they don't have them there 
again, but au contraire those smart 
young people of '3 3 returned as Juniors 
to the exclusive Sandy Burr Country 
Club in Wayland for their annual sum- 
mer formal vendredi nuit. The decora- 
tions were extremely simple, and every- 
thing movable was carefully hidden 
away. (Probably because of some droll 
whim of the Club management.) There 
were so many good-looking debs present 
that we couldn't begin to tell who was 
there. We did notice Phil Couhig, one of 
the season's most popular buds; (you 
know they call him ""Moose" for short.) 
He was simply ravishing in yellow or- 
gandy. Bill Hogan wore a corsage of 
white violets, and Larry Cadigan was 
adorable in pink chiffon, with such a 
daring decolletage. 

Except for a slight mix-up on the 
porch, everybody had a marvelous time. 
On our way out we couldn't help notic- 
ing how Charlie O'Brien (everyone 
adores that wavy-haired deb) was just 
surrounded by admirers. 

Dick Whittington 

(Febntary 13, 1933) 

All smart B. C. society attended the 
world premiere of Dick Whittington, 
the delightful musical extravaganza writ- 
ten by those two talented Bostonians, the 
charming Mrs. Larz Anderson and the 
adorable Mrs. Gulesian. The cast was 
made up of members of the B. C. Junior 
League and members of the exclusive 
Junior Philomatheia Club. The acting 
was superb, and the singing was . . . well, 

we just never heard anything Kke it! At 
intermission time the delightful Mr. 
Moses Gulesian (all the debs call him 
"Uncle Moe") came on stage and made a 
very witty speech in which he poked sly 
fun at all the ambitious young Junior 
Leaguers. He is such a dear. Honors were 
equally divided for acting between cute 
little Johnnie Hanrahan who did every- 
thing with his difficult role, and the 
charming horse from Mrs. Larz Ander- 
son's stables who behaved so well both 
nights of performance. 

Philomatheia Ball 

(January 13, 1933 ) 

The long anticipated event has come 
and gone. I mean of course the Senior 
Assembly, the most exclusive social event 
of the year, held hier soir at the exclu- 

sive Copley Plaza ballroom. It was spon- 
sored by the members of the exclusive 
Philomatheia Club; you know Noel 
Pentacost's poem which begins: 
The ladies of the Philomatheia Club of 

Boston College 
Meet on alternate Fridays. 

Well, all the Seniors were there in their 
very smartest attire. We saw good-look- 
ing Charlie Stiles leading the grand 
march. (Charlie looked so nice tripping 
down the ballroom.) There were oodles 
of young debs there, among them John 
Carr in wine-red velvet, Frank Walsh in 
beige chiffon, and Chris Sullivan in . . . 
well, it wasn't very much, but u>e 
liked it. 

Of course, it was a supper dance, but 
there were just loads of dinner-parties 
and ushers' dinners to precede it. Every- 
body said that it was the gayest affair 
they had ever attended. 



The Beade Hunt 

THIS famous Hunt was held on January 14th, 1933, the morning after the 
Philomatheia Ball. After the Master of Hounds had called for silence, the beagles 
were blessed by a prominent clergyman. A libation was poured (down accepted chan- 
nels) and the Hunt was on. Moose Fleming bravely and gracefully held on to the 
croup of his charger during the entire ride. Grandgousier, fearing untoward 
atmospheric conditions, carried his familiar tin cup, but jeering remarks as to its purpose 
necessitated its abandonment. Hitch-horse applied Dunhill's Ointment to his nose as a 
sunburn preventative, but only attracted insects. The band was led at this time by 
Ingoldsby O'Brien, shouting his ancestral cry, "Amore." The trail led through the 
campus of Framingham State College where all were greeted by the assembled students 
clad in milkmaids' costumes. At this point Jock Hanrahan, from fatigue, was forced 
to drop out. Crossing the turnpike Connolly's mount, from force of habit, started for 
Worcester, but was headed off by Dillingsworth McCrensky. At Wellesley Let-down-the- 
bars slipped beneath his mount where he remained till the finish, being inconvenienced 
only by the limited range of vision. 

The Hunt Supper was served at the Philomatheia Chalet where Moose Fleming danced 
to a bassoon and oboe duet of Messrs. Brennan and McCrensky, and the Master of the 
Hounds recited "The Nocturnal Return from Worcester."

The Pro- Americans 

By Cornelius Dalton 

(To accord with tradition, the ^ub Tiini here preserves for posterity a typical 
article from the Stylus, a literary monthly written by four students and thirteen 
pseudonyms of Boston College. Subscription $2.00 a year. Single copies three for a 
cent at the Styhis office.) 


America is ruled by a gang of rotten politicians. Any man who is an American ought 
to be ashamed of himself. The proletariat is trampled upon by the bourgeoisie headed 
by the capitalists. The worker is dictated to by the capitalist who, after robbing him 
of his pay envelope, sucks what blood there is left in him by squeezing enormous taxes 
from him. 


I have faith in America. I am Pro-American. These negligible accretions which 
annoy us today can be shaken off like flies from fly-paper. I believe that Old Glory will 
remain flying at the masthead, majestic in her all-conquering supremacy, thanks to 
God's gift to the U. S. A., Franklin Delano Roosevelt, aided by his brave and sweet 
little wife, Eleanor. The American people, to whom all the world looks for salvation, 
will prove worthy of their immortal heritage of pioneer spirits . . . they will prove 
worthy of the Stars and Bars. 

(The second part of my article will prove more effective if it is read to the soft 
accompaniment of a phonograph recording of "The Stars and Stripes Forever.")
