Nowhere is the power, the glory, the magnitude of God so manifest as in the awesome splendor of the heavens. In that undetermined
e xpanse of time and space whose silent, infinite reaches man has never penetrated, we witness the wondrous perfection of His creation . It is fitting that among the thousands of stars that fill the night sky and those countless others beyond the puny sight of man, we find three shining beacons of light, flaming
----._- - -
goal s that burn with more brilliance before the hearts of men than 路 th e brightest star in the midnight sky. Their names are : Happiness, Success and Salvation . These are 路 indeed the stars we seek. Each of us would make his mark; would take this old world by the tail and give it a good, healthy swing . Then look up! There they are .. . stars within our reach!

, , , As the strains of the Alma Mater die in the distance, we turn for a final glance at you, our beloved Chaminade. Strange that your doors which during these past four years have appeared so matter-of-fact should suddenly rise before us in a haze of sentiment and beauty we were not aware of before. True, marauding years have taken their inevitable toll of your external appearance. But we love your time-worn halls none the less. Our love for you is that of a man for his mother; not of the beauty which lies without, but of that which is within . Now we stand on the threshold of a great adventure, realizing that there are indeed "Stars Within Our Reach." We advance bravely, stalwart Catholics, into the tro'u bled world of today, because you, Chaminade, have succeeded . Under your guidance, we have grown in wisdom and strength, in body and in soul. You welcomed us as boys. You sent us away, men, Men of Chaminade!

We, the Class of 1950, take pause on the eve of our graduation to pay tribute to the memory of one who was taken from our midst in this, our senior year. To have known Carl Zuhl was a real privilege. He was indeed a true friend to all. How many times his friendly smile and cheery laughter gladened the heart of a gloomy classmate! Even more important, Carl was a deeply religious young man, a good student, and a conscientious worker. Our Class boasts no finer Christian gentleman. Therefore, it is our desire that this, the 1950 Eagle, remain a lasting memorial to his cherished memory . .
The year" 1950" A. D. marks a half turn of the century and a Triple Centenary for the Society of Mary in which they celebrate the coming of the Marianists to America, the establishment of the University of Dayton, and the death of the Society's saintly founder, the Very Rev. William Joseph Chaminade. The celebration of this centenary is a commemoration of past progress as well as a dedication to future achievement. It is at once a prospect and a retrospect. The Society of Mary staflds upon the threshold of the second century of her coming to our country, and it is with no weariness in w e ll doing, with no sigh or semblance of decay that she steps forward
into the new era of her
progress. The past is with God; the future is for Him .
The Catholic education is the complete education. Without it those glittering stars of Happiness, Success and Salvation to which we aspire would hover far beyond our reach. To you, our faculty, we owe an immense debt of gratitude. You have consecrated your lives to Our Mother, Mary, through the education of her youth . You have imparted to us more than mere book learning . You have taught our souls. You have moulded our character. Now 路as we rise into that great unknown, Our Future, your unselfish efforts are crowned with success. Sons of Mary, we salute you!
~'e~ ~ ~ee" p~
I r Ours are difficult times, and it surely does not require too much imagination to picture youth
standing at the crossroads. Let's looK at a scene of what could be the graduation exercises of
~ny Catholic high school.
The audience, several thousand, is made up of friends and relatives of the graduates. The dignitaries are ushered to their special places, and we can almost sense the feelings of the parents of those soon to be honored. For them, this night repays in great measure the many, many sacrifices it cost them to provide the best in education for their son. Organ music accompanies the solemn processional, an impressive sight of charming young manhood moving slowly toward the flower covered platform. We can see that special attention has been given this evening to a sparkling exterior. The graduates have reached their places and the program begins. The audience listens attentively as one of the members of the class delivers his address on this crowning night of his high school years. This is followed, perhaps, by a musical selection and then another speaker. Finally, the climax of the evening-the awarding of the diplomas. The school anthem is sung and another class has been graduated . What are the thoughts of your faculty on such an occasion? Yes, we do have a certain pride in the accomplishments of our students; but this is something superficial, and the past soon gives way to thoughts of the future. We see you, each one of you, at various times standing at the crossroads. We see you hesitate and then make your choice. We wonder how you will meet the many problems which will confront you in the years which lie ahead. You will need more than ever before the realization of your obligations connected with the many perplexing moral problems in the business, social, and political world. Will you realize that you are living at a time in which no achievement can easily be attained? That adventure and pleasure are not life? Will you be convinced that this is not an age of amateurs? Your choice at the crossroads will determine your eternity. We have supplied you with the answers to these problems and have trained you in the self discipline required to make the proper choice. For the past twelve years, you have received formal training in the service of God, love for your neighbor, and duties toward yourself. The example of your parents, your priests, your teachers, and your classmates should help you turn in the right direction. You have told us that you were loyal to God, to your country, and to your fellow men. You have followed your Credo. You have shown a generosity and a willingness to do difficult things. You have loved your school and co-operated with your faculty. You have manifested the spirit of the true Christian, the Christian as Christ wishes him to be. Our thoughts come back to you at the crossroads. Standing with you is Our Blessed Mother; and knowing your devotion and love for her, ou r doubts have cleared. Your choice is a confident one, and you move forward with the thought that our prayers are with you whenever you come to the crossroads. The applause is over; you have begun the recessional. God bless you and Mary protect you, OUr Men of Chaminade. Brother Matthew G. Betz, S.M.

With happy high school days behind us, we, the graduates of 1950, turn our eyes toward those shining goals: happiness, success, and salvation - the stars within our reach . With
br i lliance
idea ls beckon and at .the same time hur l a challenge of conquest to us from their lofty constellation . We embark on our quest in times wrought with chaos and impending calamity, yet we . do not fear. We, as Catholics, have richly ben efitted from our years of Catholic, Marian education . Our faith and our youth wi l l not be denied, and thus strengthened we will bring those stars, which we seek, with:n our grasp .
Congratulations are hereby extended to you, our class officers, on a job well done . The success of the Class of "50" has been due in a large measure to your conscientious efforts. The responsibility of "setting the pace" for the class throughout the past year has fallen upon your shou lders.

The Senior Class points with pride to the ten men who comprise the 1950 Ma.rian Chapter of the National Honor Society. To qualify for membership in the National Honor Society, they have maintained an overall scholastic average of ninety per cent or better and a character rating of at least ninety-five per cent throughout their four high school years. Furthermore, they have each been active in at least two schoolwide organizations during the same period . These men richly deserve our congratulations . They. have clearly demonstrated their ability as leaders .

1946- 1947 . drawn the curtain on our grade school days, we entered Chaminade with 路 . 'd that we had finally achieved manhood. We were now on the threshold the I ea hase of life. We did new things and were proud to display to our of a ne W P . 'ty that we were Men of Chaminade, the pride of Dayton. fair CI We soon acquainted ourselves with football rallies, the different organizations in the school and, of course, settled down to careful, concentrated labor. What a yea.r l It closed for us full of happy retrospection and rich in pleasant thoughts of the years to come. Havmg
1947-1948 Sophomores! Ah, what a word! We were among these designated by that name. We knew it all; that is, until we learned that it meant wise fools . We moved up to the main building and, at last, felt that we were finally on the "inside." Some of us won great acclaim on the gridiron and hardwood floor. Some again shone as scholastic leaders. The days were packed with everlasting memories. Pop started to reJent and gave us the family car. The formals came fast. Ah! Those were the days, eh fellows?
1948- 1949 Well, we finally made it. We now were upperclassmen; and if anyone addressed us to the contrary, we were ready to do battle. We look back and remember the scourge of our team on its other local grid opponents. What a feeling it will be when we can say, "I was there when __________________________________ ." We certainly left that year in fine style. Remember how proud we were when, dressed immaculately, we 'd rove to the prom. We were elated over the thought of becoming Seniors.
1949- 1950 The Senior year, the beginning of the end. We looked ahead and planned for the future. After June the first, we would no longer reside within the confines of our alma mater. The football team again proved its prowess by claiming the city championship. Our school spirit ran high . Then came the day, graduation. We found ourselves a little sad to leave the old brickpile. Our History does not end here, however. It is just starting. We leave these halls with principles of work and prayer motivating our actions. With the ' help of Divine Providence, we resolve never to forsake them . Now we are ready to enter the world and play our part as true Men of Chaminade. 51
lest we forget, there are stars within your reach too, but they are far off. Today you plan, study, pray and wait for the Tomorrow that will be yours, your day to soar in search of those celestial rewards that we, graduates, seek. today. Now graduation, and the diploma it will bring, seems far off. Ah, how you dream of that high school diploma, your passport into the future . But remember a blank passport is not an insurance of success as some mistakenly believe. Each of you, through your scholastic efforts during these formative years is writing in his destination on that blank passport. Keep in mind as you dream of the future, your diploma is what you make it now, a passport to the sunny climes of success or the di smal depths of failure . Your time is short enough . Use it well, so that when graduation comes you will find within easy grasp those stars within our reach.

Junior "8" "B" was never known to start off with a "Bang" but once it started to roll it couldn't "B-Bop'd." The class was represented in sports by five footba ll and three basketball players. "B" was also the homeroom of Jerry Hagan, master of Fuzzy's T-fOl'mation, and Bob Kern, master of wit and comedy. The leaders, Don Jones, Bob Eilerman , Jerry Hagan and Bob Daley, formed a dollar-a-month club to boost the building fund.

Sophomore 118 11 Sophomore B was the class with three athletic officers. The president, Bill Sommer, was a varsity football player as was Bill Eisenhauer, the treasurer. James Omler, the Veep, played reserve basketball. The other officer was Don Wellmeier, secretary. There were, however, three other class members in athletics. Although claiming two ' spirited cheer leaders, they failed to register high honors in school drives. "2B" or not "2B" that is the que3tion.

The other class officer, Al Burger, represented "c" on the reserve basketball team along with three other classmates.

Like argyle socks-bright, colorful, and closely knitr--this class fitted perfectly into our complicated system which calls f9.r an organization within an organization-. The "D-men" sparkled in the Marianist and Stamp drives to take a first place in the final results. In these contests, they showed their true colors-a loyal Green and White. Fifteen members of the class were in the C.S.M.C. while the honor roll claimed none.

Completing the first year of their tenure at Chaminade, Freshman A have compiled an inenviable record in all of their activities and have set a fast pace for all other competitors. They have the distinction of having led the school in two major drives, and of having pldced the greatest number of students on the honor roll in their division. They were represented in sports by foul' reserve football players. The band also claimed six of their members. . The leaders of this spirited class were: Dick Poeppelmeier, Jack Fader and Ray Kuntz.

Our primary objective among those stars within our reach is, of course, that most lofty goal, eternal salvation. All worldly success and natural happiness means nothing to the man who, in the end, loses his soul. Thus, the goal of Christian, Catholic education has ever been the accomplishment of man's salvation through work and prayer. Here at Chaminade every student has an opportunity, through the reception of the sacraments and the incorporation of prayer into
intimate, inseparable union of his faith and everyday living. The appreciation and practice of this divine union in our lives mean we have already taken a great stride 'f orward toward that brightest star within our reach.

Realizing that when a student enters the halls of Chaminade, his school life forms the major part of his interests, and that the ties between him and his parish are somewhat laxed, the CSMC inaugurated the placement of members into their respective parish groups. In this way, not only did the school benefit from their competitive spirit, but also the parishes who found in their former pupils a renewed interest in parish activities.
Among the numerous projects undertaken by the CSMC, this year were the exemplary Benedictions, the well-attended novenos for the beatification of Fr. Chaminade, the daily rosary during the month of October, the Catholic Authors Contest, and, last but not least, the pride of the Catholic high schools of Dayton, the Bishop Thill Conference so well attended by the joint forces of Chaminade and Julienne High Schools.

Highlights of the year's activities were the impressive consecration ceremonies held at Emmanuel's Church on the afternoon of March 27th. Needless to say, it boosted the importance of loyal and devoted services as an active member of the e.S.M.e. Commendable to relate is the fact that several members of the e.S.M.e. collaborated with their pastors and formed a sodality group in their parishes. Through such organizations, the students were able to undertake various spiritual and recreational projects centering about their pari shes. For example, they sponsored parish socials and organized the Catholic youth of the parish to participate in a monthly general Communion Mass. These stude nts, who have made the training they rece ived as members of the e.S.M.e. functional, are giVing good example to their fellow classmates and stand as a challenge to their apostolic spirit and organizational ability .

One of the best conferences witnessed in Ohio was that held It Julienne High School. The Japanese, Chinese and Puerto Rican students of the University of Dayton explained the colorful displays of their respective homelands; and the Hawaiian and Julienne girls provided the entertainment. The conference instructed the members in the gress made by the Sisters of Dame and the Marianists in "sure"... A century of progress was theme of the conference proved both instructive and tertaining.
The year 1950 was one of great relolcln9 and celebrating here at Chaminade. And much was there to celebrate. In October, a Solemn High Mass marked the official opening of Chaminade's Centennial Year. In JanualY, displays and marionette snows commemorated the coming of the Brothers to Dayton, and a second Solemn High Mass sung by the student body marked the the anniversary of the death of Father William Joseph Chaminade, Founder of the Marianists. Under the able direction of Brother George Ruppel, seven boys of the junior division colorfully displayed the difficulties of travel in the days when the Brothers first came to Dayton. With the use of marionettes, five Brothers retold their interesting adventures.

In the true spirit of a retreat, the Men of Chaminade paid close attention to the sermons of I"r. Richard Brand, the retreatmaster, attended Holy Mass, and made frequent visits to the school chapel. As a result, the spiritual morale of the school was raised. Daily communions increased, Benedictions were given to a capacity chapel, and students made a marked effort to follow their retreat resolutions.

;eeade4 Sociat SUfflfflit 1fJttIt '50 7''UJ#n Straying from all precedents, the Junior Prom Committee under the competent direction of Brother Elmer Moore e lected to make a few drastic changes in the traditional Chaminade Prom. Trying to avoid the annual graduation congestion which June always brings, the committee saw fit to move the Prom date to the twenty-first of April. It was decided by a Senior popularity poll that Earl Holderman and his music makers would handle the orchestral rhythm at Wampler's Barn. Contrary to fore- 路 gone Promenades, this dance was attended exclusively, by members of the Junior and Senior classes and was strictly formal. Combining all these and many other new ideas, the Junior Class succeeded in making the 1950 ~romenade the tops in the history of the school. With this in mind, the Senior Class of '50 extend theit路 heart-felt thanks to the Junior Class for a job well done.

In an unending effort to knit the Catholic Youth of Dayton more closely together, Club Cayoda has, through the years, sponsored dancing and entertainment every Friday night at the Loretto. These socials have become a regular feature of our week-end, a rendezvous for the entire crowd, and a place to bring our friends.
Here is found Dayton's Catholic Corner of Companionship. Dancing, ping pong, sipping cokes, or just chatting, all playa part in the "Club." The photos enlivening this page : The Gala Opening, Intermission Get-together and The Congested Bar Scene, recapture the past year as only a picture can.
Among the numerous projects sponsored by the Student Council is an annual dance held during the Yuletide season. This year's festival took place on January first under the able chairmanship of George Pflaum. The efforts and planning of Chaminade's "Student Senators" deserves commendation; for the expansive Miami Hotel Ballroom failed to accommodate the overwhelming crowd that came to dance to the music of Johnny Reger's band.
It has been the custom of the Council to use the proceeds of this
treasury, but because of the allout enthusiasm toward the building fund, it was decided to turn the financial
essential cause. Again, as in all other Eagle affairs, the building fund holds top billing.

Who can forget . . . the perfume of a beautiful corsage, the lilting rhythm of Weiher, Rish, Melia or Hines, the enchantment of the gaily decked ballrooms, the grace of long flowing gowns . . . memories unmistakeably associated with a formal dance. Though one may stand out among all others, all will remain ... highlights of our high sch60l days.
Amid the sophisticated surroundings of the Miami Hotel Ballroom, the "Moonlight Magic" was held on the fourth of February with Bill Ri-sh and his crew supplying the musical background . Considering the facial expression of Chai:lie Gentile at the right, we would be inclined to say that the dance was quite successful.
In praising Club Cayoda, one cannot overlook its annually colorful Mardi Gras formal. This year's dance was held on February seventeenth, with Ron Weiher and his orchestra on the bandsta nd. The colorful and gay coronation ceremonies, again were the highlight of the affair. Chaminade's own John Connolly was chosen King. That's John seated on the left with his beautiful queen, Miss Pat Warning.
The bi-weekly Saturday night dances, sponsored by St. Joseph Commercial School have always held a priority in the Social life of the student body. The reason being that few other regular socials can measure up to the friendly and homey spirit found at their affairs. In the picture George Mischler, Tony Staub and Tom O'Connell seem to be enjoying this homey atmosphere.
t Throughout the year, Chaminade students have called
chaperons. Mr. George Early, Senior Civic and Sociolog y teacher, has been especially generous in this regard. In the picture at the left, Mr. Early seems to be enjoying his extra curricular. Hmmm!
Friday the thirteenth, a date usually associated with ill-fortune and black cats this year put on a new aire. It was the night of Julienne's annual Sophomore Dance. Gloominess . was completely forgotten on this wet January evening as Ron Weiher and his aggregation opened the dance by softly playing their theme, "Moonglow."

The complete high school education includes much more than mere academic achievement. Of equal importance is the formation and development of the student's character and personality. Lessons in leadership and co-operation are best acquired through' participal ion in school wide organizations and activities. These lessons, well learned, will prove not only useful but essential in later life. Thus, our extra curricular activity, too, has brought . us one step closer to those stars within our reach.

Under the leadership of Brother Joseph Trageser, they" entered into every activity the school offered. Rallies, the Spring Concert, football games, the Variety Show, Holy Name Day parade and the U. D. Centennial parade were a few of the act ivifies in which they participated. The band is a vital part of Chaminade. It not only boosts the schoo l spirit, but adds sparkle and zest to every occasion.
When Brother Trageser took over the band, he started a building up process .Today we can see the results of his efforts, a band of which we can be proud and one which is the finest in the city. The many hours of practice paid off in peak performances. Snappy marching, new melodies and stunning band formations set Dayton agog . Remember the "Indian Song" and the illuminated formations or the " Blowing Bubbles" specialty? One of the Band's greatest achievements of the year was the second annual Spring Concert. With Brother Trageser and guest conductor Johnny Reger, the concert presented a full program of classics, songs by the glee club, musical solos and novelty numbers like "Dry Bones," "The Three Trees," and "Whistler's Mother-in-law."
Spring Concert takes a "feline" turn as the second "conductor" takes over.

Under the slogan, "the best ever published," the "50" yearbook staff members Worked day and night to achieve their goal. Starting work
editing and planning on the Eagle never ceased until w ith a sigh of relief the last phrase of the final copy was sent off to the printer. An "All American" book was the end toward which the Eagle staff devoted all their time and energies. They labored for the school and for the students in an effort to preserve for them the precious years they spent at Chaminade. First success of the Eagle was scored by the Business Staff under Brother William Anderson, when the goal of the ad 路 drive was realized . Basing their theme on "Stars Within Our Reach," the editorial staff, under the capable direction of Brother Albert Kozar, met an early deadline so that the yearbook might be in the hands of the students before the close of the scholastic year.

For entertainment which will reign long in the minds of all who saw it, Chaminade's Variety Show struck, a zenith. The success enjoyed by "Around Our Town" seemed to recapture the long standing, but now mothballed' Minstrels, which held many fond memories for Chaminade boosters. For its corn, comedy, and wholesome enjoyment, this peak in student participation could not be paralleled . Its success might well make it an annual affair. In Webster's book of definitions, "variety" is referred to as the lack of monotony or likeness. If there ever was an event more deserving of the word , it was "Around Our Town," It was a

The feminine attire and make-up of Tom Glaser, Dick Zimmer, John Templin, Louie Illes, Jerry Schenking and Tom Hilgeford had the packed auditorium wondering whether Chaminade had turned co-educational. The personalities of Bob Kern and Tom Kirk left nothing to be desired, nor did the "Bar Scene," the "Gay Nineties" the "Old Fashioned Picnic," the "Merry Wives of Manhattan," or "The Arch of Time."

20 ... Louisville . .. 31 Gradually worn down by their faster opponents in the second half, the Eagles dropped theil' 1949 curtain_ raiser to Louisville St. Xavier, 31-20 In the first two quarters, Chami~ nade, performing before 5,000 fans at Athletic Field, was magnificent. Behind the scoring jaunts of J eem Newland and Eddie Mershad, the Eagles quickly rolled up a 20-0 lead at half-time. But Louisville was a much improved team in the second half. Theil' agile line battered the Green and White eventually into s ubmi ssion. permitting the "X" backs to chalk up 31 points and the ball game.

33 ... Fairview . .. 14 Chaminade drew first blood of the '49 campaign in winning its opening city league encounter against the Fairview Bulldogs. The first marker came when Babe Perkins scampered 75 yards off right guard. Minutes later, Eagle quarterback, Jake Hagan, pushed over from the one-yard stripe. The ' third T.D. occurred when all-city end, Joe Tangeman, blocked a Bulldog punt and Ed Borgert recovered the ball. Newland scored on the following play. Touchdowns by Tangeman and Jerry Kauth in the second half balanced the 14 points that a revitalized Fairview eleven was able to gather, and the Eagles had their first victory.

7 ... Purcell ... 34 Although the Eagles, by virtue of a first quarter touchdown, earned the distinction of being the first team in 1949 to lead Cincinnati's Purcell, the superior manpower of the Cavaliers' two-platoon system gradually snowed under Fuzzy's footballers. Culminating a 91-yard march, Chaminade scored its only points of the game on a pass from Pflaum to Tom Spahn. Jeem Newland added the seventh point with a perfect conversion. Purcell's tying touchdown came after a recovered fumble just before intermission. In the second half, the mighty Cavaliers, who went on to an undefeated season. picked up momentum and amassed the biggest margin of victory against Chaminade in twenty years. The final score was 34-7.
13 ... Wright . .. 7 Despite the inspired play of the Wilbur Wright Pilots, the Eagles remain ed unb eaten in city compe tition by coming out on the long end of a 13-7 score.

35 ... Stivers ... 7 The Eagles reversed things this time; and, instead of falling down in the second half as had been their custom in the preceding games, they became stronger as the game progressed Number 69, Eddie Mershad, raced 69 yards for the first score on the opening scrimmage play. A pass from Bonbright to Tangeman and the second of Babe Perkins' 5 conversions made it 14-0 at halftime. Stivers scored in the third canto but the roof fell in on the Tigers as touchdowns by Perkins, Tom Spahn and Jake Hagan ran the SCOI'e up t~ 35-7. Fuzzv's boys still remained unbeaten in city league conl,.p etition.
1 9 . . • Roosevelt . . . 6 The Chaminade victory machine kept rolling along as it took a strong Roosevelt eleven 19-6. End Joe Tangeman, on a brilliantly-quarter_ backed play, raced an end around for 30 yards and six points in the second quarter. Then Furderer plowed over from the one for the second T.D. It put the Eagles ahead 12-0 at intel'mission . . Roosevelt came back strong in the second half and scored on Arrington's 85-yard jaunt around right end. Thereafter, the Chaminade line, playing one of their fiercest games of the yeal', dug in and refused to give any fTround to the Teddv backs. Little Jack Furderer, assisted by Hagan's timely block, scored the clinching touchdown in the fourth period, making the final score read: Chaminade 19, Roosevelt 6.
3 1 ••• Kiser . . . 13 The Chaminade Eagles clinched the city chamjJionshio of ' Dayton as they crus hed a scrappy but hopelessly outclassed Kiser eleven, 31-1il . 15,000 persons jammed the high school stadium to watch the classic of the yeal'. The Eagles sewed up the contest early in the first half. Touchdowns by Furderer, Tang~man, Mershad and Perkins put the Faustmen way out in front by a sco re of 25-0 at halftime. In the seco nd half the North Dayton team scored two T .D's against Chaminade's reserves. Harry Bonbright constantly har·rassed the Panthers with his jarring tackles and long punt returns. In the closing minutes of the game, Furd erer scored another six-pointer to make the final tally 31-13. The victory also gave Chll:mJna de their 26th straight win agaInst city competition,

21 . . ~ Toledo . . . 1 2 Not content with the laurels won in the Big 7, the Eagles were determined to avenge their previous out-of-town defeats by upsetting powerful Toledo Central Catholic. Hundt'eds of Chaminade fans made the trip to Toledo to cheer the Eagles in their final game. The game was played in a driving rain and the players' numbers were indistinguishable in the mire. Neither eleven scored in the first half, but in the opening minutes of the third canto, Jack Furderer, who Etarred tht'oughout the contest, galloped 82 yards for six points. Pet'kins converted. Toledo soon scored a T .D., however, and followed up with another six points to lead 12-7. But Furderer again came through, and in two plays the freshman fullback covered 69 yards to give Chaminade a 14-12 advantage. The clincher came when Ha!!"an passed to Tangeman in the end zone. The final score was Chaminade 21, Toledo 12, and the many loyal Eagle fans happily returned to Dayton.

These eight boys were ever ready to lend encouragement when the Eagles were falterin):!' or to lead the vocifet路ous applause when they soared high above their opponents. Chaminade students have always been noted for their spirit of loyalty. This was especially noticeable during the Chaminade-Roosevelt football encounter and later at the Chaminade - Fairview basketball tussle. The cheerleaders and the lOtudent-body reached the peak of spirit during these two contests. We, the student-body owe our sincere appreciation and g'l'atitude to these boys for their magnificent co-operation in assisting our football and basketball teams in achieving such notable success.

The Chaminade basketball quintet provided their fans with many thrills and exciting moments in 1950 as they compiled one of the better records in recent years. In the Big Seven race, the Spangmen raced right ' down to the wire in the titte chase before succumbing to Dunbar's flashy Wolverines, the city champs. Were it not for a bad night in the opener against Wilbur Wright, the Eagles would have been co-champions . As things turned out, however, the green and white had to settle for a second-place deadlock with highly-rated Fairview. No member of the student body will ever forget that the Fairview game was the peak of the season. For on that evening the Eag les had that little "something extra" that characterizes a Chaminade athletic team, and with the moral support provided by the cheering fans, they upset the previously unbeaten Bulldogs. Although they were primarily a "team" team, Ed Spang had on his roster one boy, tall Don Shumard, 6'6" center, who made the AII-city quintet.

Another spring sport at Ludlow and Franklin which is rapidly growing in student interest is tennis, coached by Brother John Blank. Last year's team compiled only a fair record, winning 4 and dropping 3 in city competition . The doubles team was eliminated early in the district tourney but Bern ie Trick advanced to the semi-finals before bowing out. This year's squad will be built around Trick, a holdover star. A few of the many other promising racket-wielders trying out for the team are Tom Daugherty, Tom Muth, Tom Kronauge and Gale Fella.

Rapidly becoming one of the most popular sports at Chaminade and 'certainly the one in which the greatest number of students indulge, is the art of Bowling. There were approximately one hundred and twenty bowlers in the three Chaminade leagues. The champion team in the National League was the "Senior Stars" with the record of 37 wins and 17 losses. The top aggregation in the American loop was the "Nogoodnicks." They won 35 and dropped 19 games. The freshman league title was captured by the "Gutter Balls" with a record of 34 and 20. Highlights of bowling season were two tournaments, the Father-Sons tourney held January 8th
The Senior Stars, Bowling Champs-Standing: Tony Staub, Joe Matt and Karl Zengel. Kneeling: Mark Schaefer and Jim Drummer.
and the Singles-Doubles event held at t he end of the regular season. Coming out first in the Dads and Sons tourney were Carl Monnin and his uncle, Geo. Frantz. They combined to roll a 1060 series. Tops in the singles tourney was senior Karl Zengel, who rolled a 615 series. Zengel teamed with another senior, Joe Matt, to take the doubles event. Jim Drummer wound 路 up the season with the best average, 156. Second to Drummer was john Van Dyke who averaged 146. Tony Staub was the single officer in charge of the bowling leagues. Brother Paul Landolphi was faculty moderator; and Mr. Lawrence Staub and Mr. James Tunney acted as instructors.
The second place Cards - Standing: Bob Wahrer, David Knapke, John Templin. Kneeling: Glenn Lefeld and John Kreitzer.
JOHN VAN DYKE
Foremost among the spring sports at Chaminade is golf. In recent years, the school has produced many outstanding teams and several individual stars. The 1950 pellet-propelling aggregation promises to uphold this fine record and has a good chance of taking the city championship and also the district title. Ace golfer on Brother William Schmitt's team is Bob Benning, star for the last two seasons and one of the top players in this part of the state. Ably supporting "Bugs" on the golfing squad are George Pflaum, Tom Geis, Norbert Schiml and several other promising swingers who will attempt to make the team. MIKE FLYNN
