Though we leave, they stay. No longer shall we have their guiding hand. We are launching into the deep, trusting in the knowledge that they have imparted by their teaching to guide us safely. In the years to come we will remember these kindly men, their unselfish sacrifices in our behalf. God love them .

J.n Q 5


Holy Father POPE PIUS XII Now Gloriously Reigning

The Barque of St. Peter, now sailing troubled and dangerous waters, is still

proudly afloat, still following that same, undeviated course mapped out by

Christ centurielS ago. We graduates of Chaminade have great confidence in oue

heavenly-guided Pilot, Christ's Vicar on earth, to lead us safely to our true home.


His Excellency KARL J. ALTER Archbishop 0/ Cincinnati

Now, as we face the world, our thanks must go to Archbishop

Alter. His untiring devotion to Catholic living has helped make

our past sincere and our future safer. To him we are grateful.


The Right Reverend MSGR. CARL J. RYAN

"Go . . . whatsoever I have commanded you." With this as his motive, Monsignor Carl J. Ryan has guided us, from his remote office in Cincinnati, through four years of solid spiritual trainin g. He has frequently manifested special interest in Chaminade. We feel, that without the untiring zeal with which h e carries out his office, our achieveulents would n ever have been accomplished.

REV. EDWARD CONNAUGHTON

Father Edward Connaughton, Slllce his appointment in 1949, has h eld the position of Sup erintendent of Parochial Schools in the Da yton area . H e knows th e many and far reaching problems of the class room, since h e himself has been in the position of a teacher. Father ha s b een active in many groups concerning the future of youth- our future! Fath er Connaughton, we thank you.

MR. GERARD "FUZZY" FAUST Reti,.ing Football Coach

W e, the class of 1953 wish to express OUl' d ee pest appreciation and h eartfelt thanks to Mr. Ger ald " Fuzz y" Faust. In the p as t twenty years as our football coar.h , he has b een looked upon with great awe and admiration. In amassin g his great r ecord, h e has gen erousl y sacrifice d p ersonal pleasures to do more than his share in the stru ggle of molding m en. We d e dicate the " Ea gle" to M r .

Brother Matthew presents Mr. Faust with a tr ophy from th e school during a r ally honoring his retirement.

SPIRIT

KNOWLEDGE Future en gineers and chemists develop their skills in the lab s of Chaminade.

The school seek s to train not onl y the intellect, but also the will and sensibilities; it aims to inform the intellect, to shape character and to guide the emotions. It prepares for active parti. cipation in the affairs of life ; ancI to a small percentage of students, preparation for college. From the accumulated wisdom of the ages, the heritage of civilization, it draws material to replenish the mind, equipping the student to logical thinking. It bases character traihing upon the moral principles of Christ, leading th e student to form his own individuality in harmony with the best interests of society. To guide his emotions, it rehes upon the rule of right reason and the dictates of Divine Revelation.

Senior f ootLall pi ayer s show anxiety over the action on the fi eld.

Father Darhy smiles as he sees a tough Question come up.

IT HAS A HIGH PURPOSE

Can we ever for ge t th e man y delicious meals in the n ew cafeteri a ?

The gym is use d for many purposes. The footb all team trots into the gym during one of the rallies.

12


Thou , and, of student , have passed through thi, golden ~orridor to learning.

Finally our hopes have been fulfilled-our new school. We the graduating class of '53, the first to leave your doors, are indeed privileged and thankful. We have studied in your cheerful and spacious classrooms. The new gymnasium has offered us many periods of healthful exercise and inspiring pep' rallies. We have assembled often in your modern auditorium to witness entertaining and education programs. Our midday meals have been made more enjoyable by the comfort and convenience of your new cafeteria. The athletic and band rooms have offered our athletes and musicians ample space to work. Now, Chaminade, the time has come to leave you. It is by no means a happy departure, but for the knowledge we have gained, the principles we have learned and the spirit you have instilled in us, wethe graduating class of 1953-are very happy and very proud.

The corridor is different and the building more modern, but the purpose remains the same.


Tradition has s.et a goal to he met and attained.

With inspiration stemming from their Founder,

theirs

IS

the task to develop mind,

hody and soul.

On that day, many centuries ago, no -doubt, the Apostles were awe-struck at the words of Our Divine Savior: " Go, therefore, teach ye all nations . . . to observe all whatsoever I have commanded you." And today, more than nineteen hundred years later, those words of this Great Teacher are clearly fulfilled in that world-wide organization of the Society of Mary, founded by Father William Joseph Chaminade. This society is consecrated to that same mission, for its aim is to make us better Catholics for the Church, better citizens for our country, and eventually, future citizens of heaven. This, they accomplish through education, under the leadership and auspices of our Blessed Mother. Wherever one may find a school directed by the Brothers, the hundreds of graduating classes are proof enough of their untiring labors. We, here at Chaminade, are justly proud of our Faculty, and privileged to be under the supervision, for the past four years, of such a group of men, who have devoted their entire lives to that same end with which Christ com missioned His Apostles. God bless them. 15

Dean of Boys

BRO. CHARLES ECKHARDT, S.M.

Teenagers are more in need of a model instead of the ever present critic. Acting as the Dean of boys and more so as a friend of boys, Brother Charles Eckhardt has provided us with that model which we must have for our developl;lent as Men of Chaminade. His has been the steady hand that has helped many of us to better accomplishments. Having known Brother Charles for three years has provided a pleasant, experience and has built a friendship that we will long remember.

THEY HAVE GIVEN US THE ENDOWMENT

School Chaplain

REV. JAMES DARBY, S.M.

Just as a football team needs a coach, so a school needs a chaplain, for he is the guiding hand that directs our spiritual life. He is our personal advisor on matters concerning our religious well being. Chaminade has beel\ fortunate in having Father Darby as its chaplain. He is always ready with encouragement and prudent advice-his goal being our "eventual salvation. Besides being our advisor, he is also our friend and instructor. Through his efforts our years at Chaminade have been worthwhile, full of knowledge and full of grace.

The finished product . . . Four years of Chaminade: instruction, guidance, counsel; III short, a Catholic education. The product: young Catholic men, men of Chaminade, ready to plunge into the toil of everyday life. Before them they face a world of evil, of sin, of communistic materialism. Behind them lays their protection against these three into which so many fall. Where others fail, these shall succeed. The four previous years shall come to their assist· ance.

. Having been subjected to the ideas

and ideals of Christian educators,

we now look forward, better prepared

to take our places in the future.

The Struggle has been won-the four years that seemed to be an eternity, today is a reality -seemingly, a mere flash of time. But, now that our High School days are completed, we are hesitant and undecided, for never again are we to pass through these hallowed halls as Men of Chaminade. Only a short time ago, we were freshmen looking with apprehension and hesitation upon the four years ahead of us. We recall with happiness the many joyful events: four years of city titles in football due to the fine player and spectacular coaching, rallies full of such spirit as is characteristic of Chaminade, many socials, many religious gatherings that inspired us, and last but not least, the humorous situations that took place in the classroom. We, Seniors, are deeply indebted to our teachers路 for the education they have imparted, for the many hours they spent with us. We bequeathe to the succeeding students the heritage that belongs to every graduating class from Chaminade: the heritage of spirit, goo~ sportsmanship and a solid foundation in Christian Ideals. 27

SENIORS ARE GAY •

As young eaglettes, they strive to build

their groundwork, envisioning their coming life

as a challenge to their perceptive ingenuity.

We, the Underclassmen of Chaminade, the fledgling eagles, who still have years in which to develop into full-fledged Men of Chaminade, are proud to be students of Chaminade. Before us have passed other classes whose members are now leaders in the community. We have inherited from them a challenge to carry high with honor, the torch of Spirit, Honor and Christianity, with the same zest and enthusiasm as they did in years gone by. Theil' trust and challenge shall be fulfilled. The task remaining before us is great. From the graduating class of '53, we have received the Spirit of Tradition and to maintain it actively in the years ahead of us. We are not worried at these huge responsibilities that fall upon us. Rather we find joy in them, for we are honored with and enthusiastic over the gifts of those gone before us. As underclassmen, we shall launch upon our task, as only underclassmen can. And finally, as Seniors, we, too, will be able to look back with satisfaction upon a job well done. 57

A boy started school here last year. A boy who desired the education of Chaminade above all others. He could ~nly spend one month in its surroundings. He had no more time. His name was simply, Robert Smith. He died violently opposing a wrong. Will those of listless spirit remember this and try a little harder . ..

JAMES M. BUEHLER lJ-Age 15

A rather quiet boy, but possessing an eternal smile from ear to ear, and willing to lend a hand at all times. We miss that jovial disposition, but we feel confident that that happy exterior bespoke a happy and well-ordered interior. We shall remember you and Dad, but remember us lnore.


As the masterpiece means success to the Artist,

so the projects of youth mean the success of tODlOrrOW.

The trend of modern education is to give to young men today a liberal High School education. In our Catholic High Schools, however, this not only means the development of the mind through academic subjects, but also the bogy through athletic activities, the soul through sound Catholic teachings, participation in various religious activities, and last but not least, the character, personality and responsibility by means of extra-curricular activities. In short, the aim of the Catholic School is to produce a Christian student, one who by his example, leadership and co-operation can influence others for good, and at the same time live in the world as a citizen benâ&#x201A;Źfitting his country. Hence, this section of the yearbook is devoted in a pictorial manner to activities in which our students participate, thus enabling them to achieve this phase in the development of their character. Through the cooperation of the four divisions working together as one big family on the various projects, they are granted the opportunity of developing skills which will provide the impetus and foundation for successful careers after graduation. 77

SODALITY The Sodality at Chaminade operates on a parish basis, each with its own officers, and mee tin g ever y two weeks. With 10hn McCarthy as Prefect, these groups participate in a general mee ting ever y six week s. The Sodality consists of students who have a special love for Mary, and a desire to better them selves spiritually. Working towards its ultimate aim, "Filial Piety," the program of the Sodality is one of prayer, study and Catholic Action . B y making better m en of its m embers, the Sodality hopes to attain its goal, leadin g the world to Mary. To accomplish this goal, these followers of Mary encouraged the carryin g and saying of the Rosary, daily Mass project and Parish Communion Sundays. This year the schedule was one of actIVity havin g as its highli ghts the installation of officers, the Convention, and two solemn Consecration ce remonies路 in December and Ma y.

The Convention of the Marianist Sodalities was held at Chaminade during the Thanksgiving holidays. Representatives of Marianist schools from Pittshurgh to St. Louis met to exchange ideas in informal discussions on matters pertinent to the development and works of the sodality. The convention opened Friday aftel'l1oon with a keynote address hy Father Seitz, followed by reports on the activities of the various sodalities. After supper and a roundtable discussion on the sodality's method of

"Absorption," evening prayers were said and the delegates departed for private homes where accommodations were provided by pal'ents of Chaminade students. Discussions and talks on Marian topics filled the schedule for the following days. Credit for the convention's success must go to Father Darby and Chaminade's moderators for their excellent foresight and planning. All who attended the convention agreed that it wa s most instructing, entertaining, and one of the best yet.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY The graduating class of '53 extends sincere congratulations to our men of character. These nine leaders have been outstanding in scholastic endeavors by maintaining an over-all average of ninety percent or above and a character rating of ninety-five percent or better throughout a four year period. Each has displayed leadership in at least two extra-curricular activities of the school. We look up to these aggressive scholars for inspiration in the future. The very capable officers of the 1953 Marian Chapter of the National Honor Society are William Fisher, President; William Klenk, Vice-President; Daniel Nealon, Secretary; and Richard Poeppelmeier, Treasurer.

JOURNALISTIC ENTHUSIASTS To the Freshmen, Sophomores ,and Juniors, the "Chaminade News" is a new department, but to the Seniors and Alumni, it is a tradition which thm the combined efforts of the senior class president, Richard Maurer, and the Student Senate, was resurrected two years after its death. We are all proud of the way the new "Chaniinade News" has thrived in the hands of editor-in-chief, Larry Ruff and the mode!'ator, Brothel' Sturm. The way this paper has fared ha s been a credit to all connected with it. "Hats off" to all those who have helped make this department a success.

SPEECH CLUB

For a long time Chaminade has lacked a speech club, but last year, with the prospect of a new auditorium, a speech and debating club was started under the direction of Brother Sturm. This year, under the direction of Brother Sturm, the Chaminade Speech Club has moved into full swing having participated in out-of-town debating and many state regional co'n tests. The club is enrolled in the Ohio High School League and has made enough progress that it will soon be a well-known activity of the school.

STAGE HANDS This year was the beginning of a new school activity, the Stage Crew. Still in its nascent state, its members have already proven their great worth. Their task consists in producing effective lighting, changing scenery, in short, general stage mantenance. We want to extend our wholehearted ' thanks to Brother Trageser, Moderator, and his co-operative auxiliaries.

SHUTTERBUGS Who deserves the credit for the fine pictures in this yearbook? None but the shutterbugs, those devoted members of the Camera Club, who generously donated their time in the obscurity of the darkroom. These men under the direction of Brother Raymond Wuco, have established themselves as capable masters of flash-bulb fantasies. We are indebted to them for their invaluable help for a job well done.

PROMOTERS OF YOUTH The advancement of education through the betterment of the student and a more active organization-these, the objectives of the Chaminade Parent-Teacher's Association, are achieved in their monthly meetings, discussions with the teachers, and various activities. The parents and teachers know that to give the student a well-founded education it is ne cessary to unite the facilities of learning in both home and s<;hoo1. This year the fathers sponsored several fishfries and a Father-Son Banquet. Not to be outdone the mothers sponsored a pillowcase bingo, a covered dish party, and furnished volunteers for cafeteria help. Through their combined efforts a well-known traveling group, the Catholic University Players, presented a Shakespearean play in the Chaminade auditorium. In addition to the personal enjoyment and profit gained in these activities, substantial contributions were made to the Building Fund.

HARMONY MAKERS

The accomplishments of the Glee Club have been brought about by the wellliked, capable director, Brother John Keegan.

Have you heard strange harmonious chords emanating from Chaminade's music department? Perhaps it was the glee club and their arrangement of "Ghost Riders in the Sky" or a novelty number, their specialty. This group, under the able direction of Bro. John Keegan, presents all types of song, ranging from the spine-tingling patriotic numbers to the inimitable negro spirituals, America's own contribution to the music world. "Pale Moon," that haunting Indian ballad, and the stirring "You'll Never Walk Alone" as presented by the Chaminade songsters will always be remembered.

By far the most active and spirited organization in the school is the 1953 Chaminade Band. Brother Joseph Trageser, assisted by Brothers John Keegan and George Dury, developed this group of ambitious students into one of the finest bands in the city. Although the Band is seen principally at the football rallies and half-time shows, its activities are spread widely over the scholastic year. They played for the Holy Name Day parade, the Variety Show, the National Catholic Music Educators' Convention, the Christmas Concert, and its main event, the Annual Spring Concert. We pay tribute to such an outstanding group.

The colorful Chaminade Band is under the direction of Brother Jo seph Trageser, who is known for his novel and interesting football halftime shows, 97

As in the Olympus of old, athletics

IS

the nucleus of development

of a sound body which by its existence pilots one's mind to achievement.

A basic tradition behind Chaminade, behind America itself, is that of fair play. This must be developed in each individual c~tizen if we are to succeed as a nation. Sports is the art of training these future citizens through physical exercise. We at Chaminade feel proud to boast oa top athletic program. Heading the list of present endeavors in this field, of course, is football. Finishing one of the most successful seasons in Chaminade's history, we again retained the city championship and were recognized as a major power in the state. Opening with a new coach and a new gym in which to play, the baseketball team showed us early in the season that they would provide many exciting thrills in the schedule to come. Although the Spring sports of tennis and golf are not as widespread, they are nevertheless highly represented by the Green and White. The vast energies stored up in the average teenager must find various channels for expression, of which these are a few. Building better boys today, builds a better America tomorrow. 10 1

SEASON AT A GLANCE The Eagles set a fast moving pace for themselves by downing their first opponents of the season, the Big Blue from Hamilton, 50-7. The "Faustmen" then followed with seven victories, including a crowd thriller with Stivers. The win over Roosevelt marked the forty-fourth consecutive city victory and the tenth city championship. The heart-breaker of the season came in the for)11 of Mt. Cannel from Chicago. Fighting .down to the last gun, the Chaminade griders had nothing to be ashamed of as they finished on the low side of the 28-21 score. The season ended with a 27-27 deadlock with a powerful Cincinnati Purcell eleven. Finishing fifth in the state, the Eagles placed a mark that will long remam m the hearts and minds of their followers .

The Ludlow Street Reserve football team, coached by Jack Zimmerman and Dave Evans, finished their limited schedule with two wins and an equal number of losses. It is not the prime purpose of the reserve team to run up big scores, but rather to learn the fundamentals of the game which will keep the Eagles soaring higher and higher in years ahead. 113


BASKlTBAll Chaminade's anxIOUS Eagles opened their '52.'53 basketball season with a late fourth quarter bow to Beavercreek by a score of 57-64. Although the Eagles showed surprising ability in their first contest, the more experienced out of town team was not to be denied victory. Then the Green and White arose to defeat Akron St. Mary with an overall low score of 31-19. The first game away from home saw a' 54-57 defeat to Hamilton Catholic. With their fast break clicking consistantly, the quintet wrote a new record in the Chaminade bo~ks with three wins in three days over fighting fives from Miamisburg, Piqua, and Toledo Central Catholic. The last game of 1952路 found the Bellefontaine Chieftains invading the Ludlow Street gym only to fall unwillingly to Chaminade's continued winning streak.

The task of rebuilding Chaminade's basketball machine has been tackled with confidence by Head Coach Joseph lofredo. In his first year at the Ludlow Street Edifice, Mr. lofredo has shown that he intends to skyrocket the Eagle win column once again . He formerly coached at Wheeling Central Catholic High School in Wheeling, West Virginia. JOSEPH IOFREDO TOM HEIDER

LEAGUE COMPETITION In the familiar surroundings of the fairgrounds Coliseum, the Eagles won four and lost three decisions in city competition, as they tied for third place in the league standings. The first city win over Patterson was followed by two losses to Fairview and a top-rated Stivers quintet. Being the underdogs took no effect on the Eagles as they took both Dunbar and Wilbur Wright by surprise. Then after a loss to a tall Roosevelt team, the Chaminade five won their final city victory easily from Kiser.

The reserve basketball team met a streak of bad luck as the season opened and posted an unimpressive record. The Jay Vees, under the able direction of Coach Ed Regan, did however acquire the experience which will be needed to post victories in future years on the Eagle varsity five. Win, lose, or draw, the team always gave a fine account of themselves by the fair play which always characterizes a Chamiuade team.

The '56 verSIOn of Chamiuade basketball quintets proved early in their schedule that were capable of taking the situation in hand and end up on the winning side of the final tally. One of the highlights of the season was a 73-21 victory over a hapless squad from McKinley. These skillful Eagles, coached by Mr. Ed Marrinan, intend to do all in their power to return the City Crown to Chaminade in coming years.

Football is not the only sport at Chaminade in which championships are won. In completing a most successful season, the golf team won their second city championship in three years. Led by Bruce Gohman, who has since grad. uated, the team turned in stellar performances on many occasions. The only two golfers returning from last year's squad are Fred Blesi and Stewart Nolan . Under the supervision of Mr. Donald Weaver, the team will do its best to uphold the outstanding records set by ·their predecessors. As the first lligns of spring break through, the fairways and greens will be a familiar sight to a fresh and energetic group of boys. Phil Hook takes practice swing before final blast.

A spark of hope is burning for the '53 version of the Green and White tennis team. Although their past season's record was not the best in regards to the win and lost column, the Eagles, who were under the supervision of Brother John Blank, acquired invaluable experience and training. This year's predominately senior team will try their best to kindle that spark of hope into a burning fire of victory.

Companionship with our fellow-men demands an enriched social life. With a convivial attitude toward them,

we are ready to enhance the world.

Last but not least, we come to another main review of the student's life here at Chaminade. True, it is not the most important phase of high school life, nevertheless, it is not to be discounted as being merely an unimportant phase of the student's education. Chaminade's philosophy of education has as its purpose the complete development of the student, that is, training is offered along the spiritual, intellectual, physical as well as the social lines of student life. Each of these is highly important for the student's welfare. Without anyone of these aspects the graduates of a Catholic high school would indeed be imperfect examples of modern Christian manhood. As a result of the various social gatherings the graduates of Chaminade High School are ready to take their place among the various peoples of the world and feel at the same time that their training is. complete. In this section we review the completion of the modern student's life here at Chaminade. Thus, we present the social or feature section of the 1953 yearbook. 123

CHRISTMAS AT CHAMINADE "Roll out your smiles, fellas, it's Christmas again!" The merry music rumbling from the stage of the new auditorium on that chilly Tuesday morn kicked up quite a little merri路 ment in the study soddened students of good old Chaminade High. With the various talents bubbling forth from piano solos to an impromptu comedian, the thoughts of learning died quietly amidst the happy laughter. Then, 10 and behold, Santa himself lumbered in to top the occasion with a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!

I wonder what is so attractive?

The biggest social event of the year here at the home of the Green and White is the Junior路 Senior prom. The upperclassmen look with anticipation to the day of its coming. For to us it represents the fact that we are growing up, and that the days of carefree fancies are slipping into the dusk of time. We now look into the future with a more sober face and determined will. And with the advent of such social affairs comes the thought that soon the long years of our religious training will be put to the test of strength in a world of materialistic society.
