W h e n we entered upon ou,r last year at St. P eter’s, a fe w short months ago, there came am ong us a new face,— a priest, young, a m i­ able, zealous. T his man we have come to know more intim ately during the year through his inspiring talks, his kind ly manner, and his understanding sym pathy. I t is, then, w ith a deep appreciation of his priestly qualities of m in d and heart, that we respectfully dedicate this book to our devoted F ather Rector, R e v ­ erend Joseph S. D inneen, S.J.


FOREW ORD For w eeks w e have been on a treasure hunt, seeking to gather together the gem s of recol­ lection of our years at St. P ete r’s. Our argosy is n ow returned and its rich cargo of m em ories has been brought to shore. Our • treasure chest is a book into w h ich w e have ca refu lly placed our riches: stories of days gone by; sketches of old b u ild in gs; portraits of insp iring men, captains of learning, of classmates and friends; a chronicle of brother ■sodalists, of colleagues in debate, of team ­ mates in sport. N o lock holds fast the cover of our treasure chest. It lies open before you. E x a m in e w ith us its contents and read w ith us its silver thread of narrative.

T T WAS four years ago th a t we first discovered Jo h n ’s ra d ia n t optim ism and cheerfulness. In him are em bodied, too, the qualities of an ideal stu d en t. John probed w ith profit th e m ys­ teries of Virgil and he delved p atie n tly into the in trica te stu d y of chem istry. H is w inning sm ile an d sp irit of tru e gentlem anliness have gained m any com panions for him. W e do not know if Jo h n ever has a blue day, since his w onderful sense of hum or covers all possible traces of gloom. H is plans for the fu­ tu re are as y e t unknow n to us. In an y event, we feel assured th a t he will prove a credit to St. P e te r’s and will m eet w ith a good share of success. Farew ell, John!

O u r Class w as so large th a t we h ad to be sp lit up in to two divisions, 2M -1 an d 2M -2. T h a t y ear in football, B iviano, M cG eady, C onroy, and G eraghty strove for th e d ear old P rep . Ben G erag h ty , “ M o u n ta in ” H ill and “ S kip” K elleher were our c o n trib u tio n to b ask etb all. B u t th en one d ay we h it a snag. M an y of our class m em bers dropped off. Staggered for a while, we soon regained our w onted com posure. T h a t sam e y ear we h a d Jim F anning, Jim O rm sby an d C harlie D olan as de­ b aters, an d C harlie D olan took th e E locution m edal. T h e mission activities were cap tain ed b y Coughlin an d we showed th a t th e Class was quite representative, spo rtin g such o u tstan d in g scholars as H ill, D olan, C oughlin, T oom ey, C onroy, and T u m u lty . H ere, L a rry F a g a n ’s carry -all was first introduced to us and we spent our tim e seeing th a t no one stole it from him .

dw indling to ab o u t tw enty-tw o. fellows.

B u t for all th a t, we had a group of fine-spirited

Jo h n n y H ill was th e big s ta r of th e P rep basketball team th a t year and Kelleh er ran him a close second. In football, alm ost half of the class had their nam es high up on the program of the D ickinson game. L e t’s see, there were: M cG eady, C oughlin, D om ozych, H ill, Spaldo, F agan and Egan.

I t was a big celebration in th e class w hen E ddie B alinski introduced his trouser cuffs to his shoe-tops. In d ebating and dram atics we h a d O ’Brien and D olan. H ere are a few sidelights on th e Class: K och com m uting from In terlak en on the eight-fifteen; T u m u lty cracking jokes and doing the H arlem w ith T oom ey; Reilly, being q u iet; B uczynski astounding th e chem istry class; N elson arguing w ith Y urasek a b o u t th e b est w ay to get to Jersey C ity from B ayonne, and G avin versus T oom ey; D olan singing “W abash M oon” and the “ H arrison H urrican es” coming in la te for class. S tartin g on th e la st leg of our journey in Septem ber, 1931, the Class felt re­ lieved, as we h ad finished w ith M athem atics. W e thought th a t we had practically com pleted our studies a t th e P rep. T h e Class was well represented a t Sodaltiy m eetings. A t th e St. M ich ael’s Sodality Convention, John H ill, Prefect, and C harles D olan represented St. P e te r’s. W e contributed football and basketball candidates, w ho w ere to be long rem em bered for their prowess on gridiron and court. T h e an n u al play “ C ap tain A pplejack” drew two of our m em bers for lead­ ing roles an d th e p irate crew was m ade up largely of 4-M huskies. As we now tak e our d ep artu re from the old buildings in which we have been drilled in th e fundam ental principles of C atholic gentlem anliness, our h earts are heavy: for. we know it is our final farewell to the P rep and to our friends of high school days. H ow ever, tim e cannot blot out our pleasant memories, nor dim inish the deep g ratitu d e we feel to the men who have labored so faithfully for us.

CLASS H IS T O R Y 4-A r T ''H E first stra n d s in th e silver th re a d of our P re p h isto ry w ere bound tig h tly in Septem ber of th e y e a r nineteen h u n d re d an d tw en ty -eig h t. In tro d u ce d quickly to th e P re p custom s, a group of som e tw o h u n d re d new stu d e n ts rem ained in the h all as fo u rth , th ird an d second y ear stu d e n ts le ft for th eir classes. G azing ap p re ­ hensively a t each o th er, these first y ea r lads trem b led as nam e a fte r nam e was called o u t b y F r. D a v e y an d classes w ere assigned. F in ally , th e la st class, 1-E, w as called a n d th e la st stu d e n t le ft for his classroom in th e Ju n io r B uilding. I t seem s b u t a sh o rt tim e ago th a t we first m et before our L a tin teachers and listened a tte n tiv e ly to th e w ords of w isdom falling from th eir lips. T im e has not dim m ed, nor y ears erased, th a t p ic tu re of our first d a y a t St. P e te r’s. T h e dream of y ears fulfilled, we w ere stu d e n ts of th a t P rep of th e g allan t football heroes, of enviable d eb aters, of genuine stu d en ts. T h e first stra n d s in the silver th re a d of our h isto ry w ere those of friendships form ed. In th a t group of new P rep sters were boys from all p a rts of th e S tate, including H oboken, and th ey form ed firm and la s t­ ing friendships. O ur y ears a t th e school have served to m ake stronger th is w elding of our h earts. Of o u r first y e a r we can sa y little since th a t w as th e beginning of our course and in th a t group w ere stu d e n ts of b o th Science an d C lassical divisions. Suffice it to say th a t we are tru ly p ro u d of th e rep resentatives of th a t F irst Y ear Class on the fields of sp o rt. O ur m em ory serves us well w hen it recalls th e 18-0 defeat the P rep football team h an d ed D ickinson th a t y ea r; an d again, the P e te r’s conquest in b as­ ketb all. W ell do we rem em ber th e series of victories of our team s in every b ranch of sport. E re Ju n e cam e, we w ere full-fledged P etre an s and w ould have fought a t the m ere questioning of th e P re p ’s suprem acy. W hen J u n e finally did com e around, we m et w ith th e Province E xam s for th e first tim e a n d proud are we of our record. N o longer first y ear stu d en ts, we le ft St. P e te r’s in Ju n e ; b y Septem ber th e sam e group expanded th e ir chests an d gave clear evidence th a t th ey were Second Y ear. W h en A utum n h ad come aro u n d again, it found half of us in th e classical course, th e o th er h a lf b e n t on science. M r. R ooney, S.J., introduced us to the terrors of Greek an d L a tin . W ell do we rem em ber th e days of m em orizing th e alphabet, alpha, b eta, gam m a. E nm eshed as we were in the m ysteries of this strange subject, nevertheless, some found tim e to spend on the field of sport. Q uite a few of us w ere placed on th e P re p b ask etb all squad. Q uickly as our first year sped by, this second y ear w ent even m ore quickly, an d Ju n e found us again triu m p h a n t over th e dread ed Province Exam s. O ur T h ird Y ear proved to be a m ost successful one. In spite of th e heavy as­ signm ents of th e y ear, th e gentle sarcasm s of M r. H iggins, S.J., served to brighten an d lighten th e w ork. M r. R ooney, S.J., again piloted our course in the stu d y of


G reek an d in Ju n e b ro u g h t us to p ort, having a ttain ed the highest class rating of all th e schools in th e Province. In th is y ear we h ad Bill Buenzle helping the football team on to victory and B onnell, M cN ern ey an d Bill B arber were representatives on the basketball squad. T h e Sodalists in our class were m any; the B eaudevin D ebating Society also had q u ite a few m em bers from th e T h ird Y ear Class. A nd now, in our la st y ear, we entered the mazes of L atin and Greek poetry un­ der th e guidance of F r. Schm itt, S.J. Q uickly has the year passed, and now we find ourselves a t its close. In the beginning of the year, Jim M cN erney and Bill Buenzle b ro u g h t them selves into prom inence by their excellent w ork on the foot­ ball field. T h e y have tru ly earned the coveted “ P .” D eb atin g found our class a fruitful field and from 4-A Bill Reilly represented St. P e te r’s ag ain st D ickinson an d Bill B auer was chosen best speaker in the Loyola D eb ate. Sodality also drew upon the m em bers of the class of 4-A; M cC arthy, R eilly, N eu m an n an d B auer were am ong the officers. W e feel proud of our record an d feel, too, th a t we have lived up to w hat was asked of us as leaders of the school. As we come to th e end of our days a t St. P e te r’s, th e thought of leaving saddens us. M em ories of th e four p a st years rise up before us, consoling us. Y et again, it is w ith h a p p y h earts th a t we leave St. P e te r’s, confident th a t we, arm ed w ith the train in g received, will uphold her nam e, and build up even higher her reputation. T h an k s a re due to th e teachers and Prefects who have struggled so hard to im plant in us th e Je su it culture. A nd w hile thanking them sincerely we express the hope th a t th ey shall n o t have labored in vain.

CLASS H IS T O R Y 4-B “ T o all good th in g s m u st com e an e n d .” M u ch tru th lies in this proverb, and it especially in te re sts us, th e C lass of T h irty -T w o ; for an end h as com e to our so­ jo u rn a t St. P e te r’s. A nd so, it is w ith a pan g of sorrow to gether w ith a sense of p rid e th a t we recall those joy fu l m om ents well sp en t a t th e P rep. O ne b rig h t Septem ber m orn four y ears ago, we grads, th en a group of d arlin g little cherubs, g a th ered in St. P e te r’s H all, w here we becam e a c q u ain te d w ith F a th e r R ecto r an d th e o th er m em bers of th e F ac u lty . H av in g been assigned to various classes, a n d hav in g roam ed a b o u t th e buildings, we began our careers as loyal P e tre a n s. H e re we first learned of M r. D ’O oge’s views on th e stu d y of L a tin ; also, we en tered upon th e b rain -teasin g stu d y of A lgebra. M o st of us found it diffi­ c u lt to g rapple w ith these new su b jects, b u t, still favored w ith our G ram m ar School know ledge, we conquered A ncient H isto ry an d E nglish. T h e m em ories of our F irst Y ear will scarcely be forgotten. In th e Septem ber of nin eteen h u n d red an d tw enty-nine we em erged from the ra n k s of F irs t Y ear to th e role of second year veterans. A t th is stage we noticed th a t we h a d been se p a ra te d in to Science a n d G reek divisions. N o tw ith stan d in g th is sep aratio n , we, th e science class, set our h ea rts upon the w ork. G uiding us th ro u g h th e b a ttle m e n ts of C aesar w as M r. O ’B rien; M r.

Com ing b ack from our vacation, we gath ered in the School y a rd once m ore, b u t in th e superior sta tu s of T h ird Y ear stu d en ts. W e w ere notified th a t some of our com rades h ad fallen by th e w ayside. T ru ly , our T h ird Y ear afforded us m any m ental storm s. W ith M r. M c ln e rn e y as our pilot, we safely overcam e th e w hirl­ pools an d th e heav y seas of O vid an d Cicero. H ere, tw o e n tire ly new studies con­ fro n ted us— G eom etry an d P hysics, b u t the guiding hands of M r. D uffy an d M r. M a rtin o proved a valu ab le aid in conquering our exams. O ur T h ird Y ear d u ties being com pleted, we entered th e solem n p o rtals of F o u rth Y ear. W e found th a t from th e large class of yo u th fu l F irst Y ear stu d en ts four y ears ago, th e process of selection having been com pleted, a group of tw enty-four now co n stitu te d th e C lass of 4-B . T h e Class w as well represented on the sporting field b y Jo h n n y C onroy, as c a p ta in of the football team ; also, Al C ashm an and P a u l Rossi rep resen ted us on th e gridiron; Jim F in n e rty and F ritz W ilderm ann aided th e b ask etb all team .

M r. Goering, S.J., hailed us th ro u g h th e th u n d erin g speeches of Cicero and the troublous travels of Aeneas; w ith the cooperation of our friend, M r.

W herever we go, we shall bear w ith us the nam e of St. P e te r’s. As a final message, we extend our m ost sincere blessing and thanks to our teach­ ers an d to our Prefects, who have spent so m any untiring m om ents in guiding us.

m ust be th a t of a half year since Ja n u a ry found us about to draw O UthRe chronicle cu rtain upon our four years of w ork a t the Prep. Four pleasant years th ey were, however, an d a tinge of regret touched our h earts as we found ourselves stepping out from th e influence of m any h ap p y friendships. W e were completing our successful voyage an d leaving St. P e te r’s, b u t laden w ith the fruits of four years of the Jesu it training. O ur Class was well represented in every activity. On the gridiron we had such celebrities as Jo h n n y H ill, Joe M cG eady, Joe D om ozych, L a rry Fagan, Vic Spaldo, Jim E gan an d F ra n k Coughlin. Skippy Kelleher upheld the pride of the class on th e b asketball court. N eedless to say, Jo h n n y H ill was as stellar a basketeer as he was a grid-m an. O u tstanding am ong our debaters was Charlie D olan, D ickin­ son’s dow nfall, as was proved by his fiery reb u ttal. E d Balinski was a transform ­ ation in his leading fem inine role in the play. W e express our deepest appreciation to those who have inculcated in us a knowl­ edge of th e b e tte r things, our teachers.

T h u s, as each day brings us joyfully nearer th a t event, we can foresee our Class as one which has com pleted a year of persevering stu d y with g reat success.

'I T T 'E E N JO Y E D one of th e happiest experiences of our lives when we heard » ’ F a th e r D olan, S.J. announce in the School H all th a t we were to be the Class of 1-E. A t once we set ab o u t m aking new friendships th a t we are very proud of having. T h e Class in the first term contributed Jack K ostereva to the P rep foot­ ball team , an d also had m any asp iran ts for basketball glory. T he class debater was none other th a n E m m et N o rto n , who bore the class honor in the D ebate w ith the D ickinson team . T h e second term came very rapidly, and we are now engrossed in our studies and are m aking a final drive to overcome the dreaded Province Exams. However, with the capable force of teachers th a t are ours, we feel no fear for our success in these final tests. In closing this, our first year, we wish to extend our wishes for the u t­ m ost success to the G raduates, who have held a position of respect in our minds. W e also wish to th an k our learned teachers, who have toiled m any hours to in­ culcate in us the principles th a t are characteristic of St. P e te r’s.

T h e fiery argum ents and experience of the Collegians easily took th e toll of the P re p debaters, who were led by W illiam L ynch and A nthony Dillon.

In th e course of this new term , a series of in ter-class debates was arranged. In the discussion, “ R esolved, T h a t the B aum es Law Should Be R ep ealed” , a riv alry of two y e ars’ standing was settled, when Class 2-B, on th e negative, represented by A lbert Griffin, M ichael Saliski and Josep h M c C a rth y , won a decision over Jam es R euter, T hom as K e n t and John L ynch of C lass 2-A.

D R A M ATICS T T 'A R L Y in N o vem ber th e first m eeting of th e D ra m a tic Society w as called to o rd er b y M r. H a ro ld M u rp h y , S.J. T h e officers nam ed for th e year w ere: W illiam L y n ch , p re sid e n t; C harles O B rien, v ice-president; Jo h n C onroy, sec re tary ; W illiam R eilly , tre a su re r. A t th is g ath ering, h eld in th e D e b a tin g H all, M r. M u rp h y read a synopsis of th e p la y selected for p resen tatio n , “ C a p ta in A p p lejack ,” by W a lte r H a c k e tt. N am es w ere en tered for th e various p a rts in th e perform ance an d a d a te w as set for th e try o u ts. A fter keen com petition am ong som e fifty can d idates, a ca st w as selected. T h e re followed long a f­ ternoons of fa ith fu l p ra c tis e ; these, how ever, did n o t chill th e a rd o r of th e P etre an thespians, who, w ith great enthusiasm , set a b o u t the task of perfecting them selves in th eir respective roles. A w ord a b o u t th e play. “ C ap ­ ta in A p p lejack ” is three acts of A rabian N ig h t’s ad v en tu re. A m ­ brose A pplejohn, living w ith his staid old U ncle D u d ley an d his un cle’s p re tty w ard, P o p p y F aire, is so bored by his existence th a t he advertises his house for sale and decides to seek adventure. H e finds ad v en tu re — b u t w ithout leaving his house. H e h ad been looking for the “ flash” of love a t first sight, and he im agines he sees it in the beautiful A nna V aleska, supposedly a R ussian d ancer escaped from M oscow w ith priceless jewels an d p u r­ sued b y a terrib le B olshevist, C o u n t B orolsky. A m brose offers his house as a refuge. T h u s M ad am e V aleska learns of a secret p arch m en t giving details of h id ­ den treasu re, an d th is is w h a t she is after. T h e parch m en t claim s th a t one of A p plejohn’s an cestors was a notorious pirate. T o g u ard ag ainst prow ling burglars, Am brose sits u p all night, only to fall asleep and dream th a t he is a pirate, C aptain A pplejack. T h e p ira te scene is th en enacted, and a fte r it comes a real scene ju st as exciting as th e dream . T h e p lay was presen ted on th e evenings of Ja n u a ry tw enty-seventh and Ja n u a ry


tw enty-eighth a t St. P e te r’s H all. A t each perform ance a very appreciative au d i­ ence, com posed of p aren ts a n d friends of P rep students, was a t hand to enjoy the evening of vivid A rabian N ig h t’s entertainm ent. W illiam L ynch, im m aculately tailored, as Am brose A pplejohn, faithfully por­

m Since th e D ra m a tic Society is one of the school organizations w ith a definite purpose an d place in th e course of education a t St. P e te r’s, the efforts of the M o d erato r an d th e m em bers of the society cannot be too highly com m ended. A m odern p lay was enacted by th e stu d en ts w ith em inent success. T h e response to th e call for com petition in th e try o u ts was very generous and enabled the M odera­ to r to u n e a rth some fine d ram atic ta le n t am ong th e students. T his ta le n t has been developed by participation in the school play, as is evident to all who w itnessed th e perform ance. T h e mem bers of the business staff also gained m uch practical experi­ ence in dram atics by taking p a rt in the production of “ C aptain A pplejack.” In conclusion, a word of appre­ ciation m ust be said in behalf of those who gave so generously of th eir tim e behind the scenes. W ithout them , the play could not have been the success th a t it was. H aving taken this rapid survey of the y e a r’s dram atic endeavor, we again congratulate all upon their achievem ent. W e pay a high b u t a due com plim ent when we say th a t “ C aptain A pplejack”, under the able coaching of M r. M urphy, S.J., has m arked an unusually suc­ cessful season for the D ram atic Society.

T h e policy in au g u rated tw o y ears ago, of spending every cent of the L ib ra ry ’s share of th e stu d e n t activities fee for lib ra ry uses, has been continued. E ighty-five p er cen t of .this fee is sp en t for new books, ten per cent for th e subscriptions to our fifty-eight m agazines an d five p er cent for necessary supplies, such as charging cards, catalog card s a n d th e like. In its p resen t book co n ten t an d in its buying policy, the L ib ra ry is em phatically a C atholic s tu d e n t’s lib rary .

B y calling it a C atholic lib ra ry we m ean th a t we have som ething to offer which th e finest public an d u niversity libraries, such as N ew ark and Princeton, do not offer. T h a t is, a selection of books about our faith which answer on this subject all th e questions of a curious stu dent. T h is y ear th e talk s on th e use and functions of a lib rary were resum ed by M rs. M . B. D onnelly, a lib rarian w ith years of experience. One result of these lectures was th e thoughtful essays w ritten by the students on the needs of the school library. T h an k fu l appreciation for th e splendid operation of the school library is due especially to M r.

FOOTBALL C T . P E T E R ’S P R E P opened its 1931 grid cam paign by recording a 39-0 win over U nion H ill. T h e P etrean s, displaying an a tta c k th a t sta rtled the opposition, were too pow erful for th e U nion team . T h e P rep began its assault in the first period when Greene, B uckley and M cAleer advanced the ball to the eight y ard line from which M cAleer scored. C aptain John C onroy added the extra point. In the next period, Bill Breunig, the sta r of the game, snatched a pass th a t was intended for P ete L ynch, U nion cap­ tain, and cantered th irty yards to in­ crease the score. C harlie G reene did the m ajor p a rt of th e ball carrying during the second half. On the second play he dashed off tackle for a touchdow n, and Conroy added the extra point.

For alm ost im m ediately Jo h n n y C onroy celebrated his retu rn to the line-up by block­ ing an d recovering Seeland’s p u n t on the tw o-yard line. Joe M cAleer then scored on a crash through center. In the final period a pass from Greene to M cAleer pushed across th e final tally for the Petreans. T hus St. P e te r’s chalked up its fourth consecutive county win. Coach T om M yers sta rte d his second team out a fter D ickinson Evening b u t was obliged to insert his regulars when thS “ Owls” launched an a tta ck th a t startled the reserves. Soon a pass from M cAleer to T im ony gave the P etreans a 6-0 lead. A t this point John H ill began some spectacular playing. He, aided by P ete Tim ony, advanced th e ball to the eight y ard stripe from which he scored off tackle. All scoring ceased for th e half. In th e next period H ill, b y d in t of quick thinking, scored on a seventy yard run.

BASKETBALL A T T H E first call for b a sk e tb a ll can d id ates, C oach M y e rs was con fro n ted w ith a g ro u p of in experienced p lay ers. F o r in th e m id-season of last y ear, he had lo st his e n tire team . As is c h a ra c teristic of him , T o m m y M yers, w ith o u t com ­ plaining. set a b o u t ro u n d in g o u t a new team . St. P e te r ’s engaged its first c o u n ty team a fte r th ree day s rest from football and lo st to U n io n H ill b y a score of 26-13. T h e P e trean s fought stu b b o rn ly th ro u g h ­ o u t th e first h a lf b u t w eakened n o ticeab ly in th e second half. T h e P re p began w ell and due to fine p lay in g b y J o h n n y H ill, stellar forw ard, St. P e te r’s fought U nion H ill to a tie in th e first q u a rte r, 4-4. Still displaying a b ran d of ball th a t sta rtle d th e U n io n H ill team , th e P re p proceeded to roll up points to lead a t half tim e b y a 12-9 score, th a n k s to a th re e p o in t p la y by H ill. T h e stra in of h a rd p lay in g began to tak e its toll in th e second h alf an d Coach W rig h t’s b a sk eteers took a d v a n ta g e of th e w eakening P rep sters an d coasted through to a 26-13 w in. S m artin g u n d er th e d e fe a t su stain ed a t the h an d s of U nion H ill, St. P e te r’s set o u t to w in over D em arest. H ow ever, th e poor playing condition of th e O akland A rena h am p ered th e sty le of b o th team s, for th e players slid all over the co u rt and, on several occasions, lo st su re b ask ets due to this disadvantage. T h e final score show ed D e m a re st w inning o u t b y a 9-7 score, due to a bask et by K ress, lanky H o b o k en cen term an . P la y in g th ree successive gam es on three different courts, largely explained the P re p ’s th ird c o u n ty loss. W h en th e P etrea n s seem ed to have found the range of th e b a sk e t, th e h a lf ended causing th em to change b ask ets a fte r a stu b b o rn 15-14 first half. A gain, th e second h alf p roved fatal to the P re p and th e y lost o u t by a 28-19 score. Ja c k D elan ey an d Bill B reunig were the high scorers for the P rep, tally in g eleven p o in ts betw een them . C oach M y e rs sh ifted a b o u t his line-up in an effort to break in to the w inning colum n b u t lo st o u t to D ickinson E vening, by a 36-13 score. F ailu re of the P etrean g u ard s to check th e scoring of D o llard an d T hom pson was the cause of this dow n­ fall. T h is p a ir tallied tw en ty -tw o p o ints while the entire P rep team tallied only th irte e n p o in ts for th e en tire gam e. George O ’N eil, a new-comer to the team , scored five of these m ark ers in th e la st half. T h e P re p ’s n ext gam e w as w ith th e rangy St. M ich ael’s team of U nion C ity. A gain a poor la st h alf took th e toll of th e P etrean s as th ey fought to an 18-10 score a t h alf tim e, b u t th en failed to come back and allowed Form osa and M artinelli to rain p o in ts th ro u g h th e b ask et in the final h alf until th ey scored a 33-19 win over th e P etrean s. O ’N eil and B reunig were the P re p ’s only consistent sc "ers. K ing p lay ed a fine defensive gam e.


P R E P B A S K E T B A L L SQUAD

St. P e te r’s played its first gam e aw ay a t the B ayonne gym w here th ey m et a p lucky B ayonne five. W hen th e gam e began, it looked as though it would be an evenly m atched b a ttle , since th e score a t the end of the first q u arter stood 2-2. Still playing inspired ball, St. P e te r’s scored point after point and due to B reunig’s fine playing trailed a t h alf tim e only by an 11-10 score. In th e th ird q u a rte r B ayonne’s superiority becam e more evident as they ran up seven points while th e P rep tallied three. B ayonne continued to gain until the final score stood 24-17. T h e playing of T im ony was the feature of the game. H e tallied six points an d held H an k s, B ayonne center, scoreless. Still sm arting from five consecutive defeats, St. P e te r’s proceeded to drub Seton H all by a score of 26-14. T h e poor passing a tta c k of the Prep was replaced by a sm oothly passing m achine th a t gained m om entum as the game wore on. T he flashy playing of C hap o u to t and Breunig gave the P rep a 13-4 lead a t the half. Coach M yers then inserted his scrubs, who held their own in scoring, tallying thirteen points to Seton’s four, to m ake the final score 26-14. St. P e te r’s m et its next defeat a t the hands of M em orial H igh school. T he orange-clad w arriors were too m uch for the P etreans, who lost by a 34-22 score. H eavy scoring by C hapoutot featured the game. Again the Prep tasted defeat after a hard-fought encounter with Union Hill.

W ith this end in view, th e y again p lay ed th e St. M ic h ae l’s basketeers, startlin g them by the b ra n d of ball p la y e d in th e first period, w hen th e score stood 4-4. H ow ever, the de­ fense of St. M ic h a e l’s tig h ten ed an d St. P e te r’s was unable to score w ith con­ sisten cy ; so th e G reen an d W h ite team hum bled the P re p by a 24-13 score.

A t this ju n c tu re D elaney an d B reunig tightened the P rep defense and the Col­ lege Freshm en could only score three points while the P rep am assed eighteen points to w in b y a 33-13 score. Flushed w ith th is victory, St. P e te r’s m et a strong Em erson team led by Jerry M yerson an d lost b y a 29-10 score. T h e P rep here played the w orst game of the season an d it was only a m a tte r of tim e u n til th ey lost. C oach M y e r’s charges m et Lincoln for the second tim e and threw quite a scare into the Slanesm en before th e y were eclipsed in a 27-16 defeat. T he P rep opened an a tta c k th a t gave them a 6-2 ad v an tatg e a t the qu arter. T h ey continued to play sterling ball an d a t h alf tim e trailed 9-8. Once more a concentrated second-half drive of th e opposition b rought a defeat to the P rep. Bill B reunig was the sta r of the gam e, scoring th irteen m arkers. St. P e te r’s n ex t engaged D ickinson E vening and were overwhelmed by a 24-10 d efeat. A gain Bill B reunig shone for the Prep. E m erson H ig h received q uite a shock when it was obliged to fight tooth and nail for a 34-18 triu m p h . T hough th e score indicates a one-sided melee, the gam e was n o t uninteresting. T h e P rep fought h ard , b u t trailed 15-10 a t interm ission. B ut in the final h alf th e y torm ented the Bluebelles before falling into a 34-18 defeat. St. P e te r’s next trium phed over Seton H all by a score of 23-14. T he Prep started an a tta c k th a t th e Setonians were unable to h a lt. Jack D elaney and H ughes starred for th e P rep. T h e final gam e of th e season was w ith D ickinson. T he stage was arranged for a m ajor upset. T h e P rep w ent ab o u t accom plishing it and trailed a t half tim e by a 9-8 score. H ow ever, th e second half proved the undoing of the Prep, as D ickinson rolled points to win by a 27-19 score. R ydrew ski and K ing were the high scorers for th e game. D espite a seem ingly poor season, too m uch credit cannot be given to Coach T om m y M yers for his ceaseless efforts to mold his men into a sm ooth-working m achine. T h e seasons to come will prove these efforts of the coach to be most fruitful. T h e season p a st has proved th a t sports a t St. P e te r’s are carried on by a deeper m otive power th an th e im petus of tran sien t victories. T om m y is a builder — he looks to th e future.
