Of the $1,300 pledged by the 
tudents of St. Michael’s, the first 
3400 check has been sent to the 
Student Relief Headquarters of the 
National Federation of Catholic 
Sollege students in New York dur- 
ng the holidays. 

The Student Relief Committee of 
3t. Michael’s has planned to visit 
each pledged student so that those 
who wish to fulfil their pledges 
will be able to do so. Room to room 
collection is scheduled. 

Proceeds for the 
vents totaled $200. This sum was 
ised to defray the expenses of the 
Ine-Arct Plays, the Communion 
Breakfast, the Concert, and the 
“hristmas Dance. The collection: 
at the door allows all pledged 
money to be forwarded to Europe 
n the form of needed goods. 

With all the December events 
gone, there remains the Trinity-St. 
Michael’s Glee Club concert and

The committee. wishes to express 
its. gratitude for the support re- 
ceived in conducting this drive, Its 
thanks goes to the artist:, commit- 
fees, and students who worked to 
make each event so successful. 

Debating Club ~ 
Planning Panel 

Under the direction of Mr. Ed- 
ward Murphy, the Debating club 
had its) debut at the University of 
Vermont Nov. 15th, 

At this debate, 29 colleges along 
the Atlantic seaboard gathered to 
discuss the timely question, “Re- 
solved that a Federal World Gov- 
ernment Should be Established.” 
This debate lasted for two days 
during which time the teams spoke 
both ‘pro and con,’ We won praise 
but no prizes. 

The debating teams consisted of: 
George Constantine and Tim Evatt, 
Ray Salmon and Dick Borden, Bob 
Sauer and Bob Duffy, Tim Murphy 
and James Collins. 

‘Last year, the Debating club built 

up a splendid reputation while vis- 
iting Fordham, Rutgers, Holy Cross 
St. Vincent’s and Brooklyn, Col- 
lege. ; - 
A “panel-discussion’ ‘on Federal 
Government has been planned for 
the benefit of the entire Student 
Body and i: expected to be given 
at the beginning of the new semes- 
te-. This panel will be composed of 
ali the members of the Debating 
‘club and will be open for discussion 
from the audience. 

At the last election, the follow- 

ing were chosen as the club’s offi-

| Dr. Stoehr Enjoys 

Reunion With Son 

By Don O’Brien 

Probably the most suurprised 
man of the year was Dr. Stoehr 
who, while recently in New York,* 
met his son, Richard, whom he 
thought was in Sweden, 

The son arrived in New York 
and immediately phoned the col- 
lege. From his mother he learned 
that the Doctor was in New York, 
too. Hurrying to the address his 
mother had given him, he walked 
into a dramatic reunion just as a 
string quartet was playing some of 
his father’s new music. 

This was the first time that Dr. 
Stoehr had seen his son since 1938 
when they both left Austria one 
jump ahead of the Nazis, the fath- 
er coming to America and the son 
gcoing to Sweden. The son is now 
visiting here. 


Michael’s congratulates Bob 
on his 

Cicione of Cranston, R. I, 
marriage to Marie Impagliazzo of 
Providence, R. I. “They were mar- 
ried on Jan. 3, in Providence. 

‘Bob's a sophomore B. S. in chem- 
istry, and wife is now a member of 
the office personel. They are living 
on upper East Allen street in Win- 

TT on 

nai “ 



Tle Faculty, Students and 
staffof the Michaelmen wish to 
offer their deepest sympathy to 
the following students in their 
recnt bereavement: 

James and Joseph Brennan 
on death of his father. 
Russell Brennan 

death of his father. 

Samuel Corriveau on the 
death of his father. 

Joseph Lagor on the death 
of his father. 

Jason Wagner on the death 
of his mother. : 


College Baptism 
For DePeter Twins 

The DePeter twins were baptized 
December 28 in the College Chap- 
el. They were christened Edward 
Anthony and Thomas Anthony by 
Rev. Augustine Berrell, S. S. E. 

Young Edward had just return- 
ed from the hospital where he had 
been kept because of his small size. 
Now Ed can take care of the night 
feeding while burning the midnight 
oil for exams so he can stay on the 
Dean’s list. 


Rev. Gerald E. Dupont, S. S. E. 
academic dean at St. Michael’s at- 
tended the fourth annual meeting 
of the American (Conference of 
Acadmic Deans, held at Cinccinnati 
in conjunction with the Association 
of American Colleges ; 

Junior Class 
; Busy As Bees 

By Francis McMahon 

Prior to the Christmas holidays, 
there was a meeting of the Junior 
class in Austin Hall for the purpose 
of discussing Junior Activities. 

At this meeting, president, Jack 
Cahill, related that the Junior 
class had been asked to supplement 
the activities of the week end of 
May 8th which is reserved to the 
Seniors. Most of the suggested 
ideas were for a “formal dance” 
although no definite conclusions 
were reached. 

A fact of paramount importance 
to the Class was the subject of 
“Class Rings.’ ’A committee con- 
Sisting of Joe Hoffman, Bill Harte 
and Joe Mountain was appointed 
to obtain information on this sub-. 

‘St. Patrick’s Night has been 
chosen as the night to represent 
the Junior class. Due to the numer- 
ous suggestions made, however, the 
night’s activities are still unsche- 

The above mentioned facts plus 
“year-book” acitvities will be dis- 
cussed at the next meeting and it 
is strongly urged that all juniors 
ibe present.

Your Paying Friends 

Members of The Michaelmen staff have a warm spot in their 
earts for the advertisers who have stuck with the paper through 
ie shaky first few issues of this new enterprise. 

Through their good faith, The Michaelman has been able to keep 

s head out of the red. These advertisers who appear in this issue 
e kept faith with us despite the problems of having to print 45 
iiles from the college. 

The editors of this paper cannot urge tog strongly your ‘support 
f these merchants. By sticking with us, they are doing you a favor. 
‘hey deserve your patronage.

> T Aeeey, 



By Dick Jakobowski 

Now that most of the students of 
St. Mike’s have had time to ac- 
quaint themselves with the state of 
Vermont, I feel that they should 
voice their likes about the Green 
Mountain Staite. 

Question: What do you 
about the State of Vermont? 
Frank Gokey, W. Springfield, Mass. 

I like everything about it; the 
tearful departure from Union Sta- 
tion, the scenic milk train run with 
its many stops, chugging over the 


terrific 3 m. p. h, I like the cold 
chills that run up and down my 
spine when I step off the train at 
Essex Junction. 
Ed O’Day, Fair Haven, Vt. 

You have not lived until you 
have been in Ve:mont, the most 
beautiful state in the Union 

. Jack Burke, Troy, N, Y. 

Since I like skiing and other 
out door sports, I think that Ver- 
mont offers more than enough facil- 
ities to satisfy the desire of anyone 
who wants skiing at its best, along 
with other sports. I do not find the 
people in Ve:mont as friendly as 
those in my home stiaite. I think 
Vermoni’s rigid code on amuse- 
ment and entertainment is an in- 
centive to study. This is not true 
in larger states. 

Joe Flynn, Bronx, N. Y¥. 

Most of all I like Vermont’s green 
mountains, If the people of Ver- 
mont did away wiih their Blue 
Law: and had more gay laws I 
would like th®-stde"mueh better. 

John Weinman, Hudson, N. Y. 

Mostly, I like the covered bridges 
and the old colonial churches. Its 
Norman Rockwellness: natusal life 
scenes and views of the independ- 
dent people of Vermont, No matter 
where you turn, your eye: meet a 
scene that cen be easily painted, 
and if I wee a painter, I could 
better express the beauty of Ver- 
mont. £ 
Sarge Salmofi Clintén, Mass. 

While Vermont has progressed 
rapidly in the past, it has retained 
that warm, small town friendliness, 
the typical New England Yankee 
hospitality, all of which we find so 
sadly lacking in many neighboring 
states. The Vermonter is excellent 
proof of the good clean healthy liv- 
ing offered in Vermont. 

Jack Higgins, Belmont, Mass, 

I like the easily accesible -ski- 
ing facilities, the beautiful scenery, 
th pretiy Vermont women, the 
rough, winding rivers, the majes- 
tie mountain, the mirror like 
lakes and above all, St. Michael’s 
College; a great school. 

Carl Zuchnieovich, Franklin, N. Y. 

You really haven’t been to a 
beautiful stale uniil you have been 
to Vermont. Why? Just stand at 
the base of Mt. Mansfield and you’ll 
know what I mean. 

Pete Biown, Great Neck, N. Y. 

One of the nicest things I like 
about Vermont is its people. My 
roommate comes from Vermont. 
Jim Horth, Pittsfield, Mass. 

You can’t beat Vermoni’s beau- , 

tiful summers. It is a priceless 
treasurer and must be seen to be 
appreciated. Summer: in Vermont 
surpa ses all other states in scenic 
beauty Only an artist can describe 
its beautiful sunsets. 

Joe Meagher, Hoosick Falls, N. Y. 

The bes tthink I like about Ver- 
mont i: Lake Champlain, I have 
never enjoyed fishing and swim? 
ming and the beautiful scenery any 
where as much as I have at this 
impressive lake. 

John Hennessey, Lynn, Mass, 

What impressed me most is the 
friendlinesg and sociability of the 
people of Vernniont: They are kind 
and always willing to help.

as to the new changes at St. Mi- 
i a 

Ye:, the manner of conducting 
the Ties of Men’s office, or, as it 
used to be called, the Pe:fect of 
— office, has been changed. 
rules and regulations have also 
ged in’ many ways. There is 
a ‘reaon for all this, undoubted- 
ly. And, in the discussing the phil- 
osophy or the raison detre of the 
Office of the Dean of “Men, the rea- 
som for the change may become ap- 
parent also. Im comparing the 
minimum ‘regulations which are 
now in force at St. Michael's with 
other Catholic institutions with 
which the writer is acquainted, one 
is forced to admit that St. Michael’s 
is now perhaps the “laxest” col- 
lege in the count y. 

We are considering Catholic col- 
leges, of cour e. We use the word 
“lax” without any hesitation or 
without any fear that anyone woul@ 
aecuse St. Michael’s of having lost 
its standards, 

_ Standardds High 

Our standard: and ideals are still 
as hign as they ever were and, as 
far as we can judge, they are still 
being achieved as much as they 
were in the past. We might com- 
pare the charges which are now in 
operation at St. Michael’s to the 
changes that come about in a good 
Catholic family in the course of 
two generations. 

One generation lives different!v 
from the othef. They are both good 
The principles which they live are 
‘both high and sincere; the goals 
are still the same, but the modus 
vivenSi, the manner of living that 
lie has changed.

One ‘of the most common remarks which the alumni make when 
return to St. Michael’s for a visit is “Gee, has this place 

“Then the ygo on to reminisce about the St. Michael’s they knew 

ment and the St. Michael’s with | 

the large enrollment. Last Septem- 
ber, Father Stankiwicz wa: given 
a greater burden — that of being 
Treasurer of St Michael’s College. 
He has gone into redder pastures 
- to use a very bad figure ‘fo speech. 

Last September the present 
writer, after he had returned from 
a stay at the Catholic University of 
America in Wa:hington, was put in 
charge of the Office which was 
made vacant by Father Stankie- 
wiez’s elevation. Much of the regu- 
lation and philosophy of the office, 
therefore, has been ~- inherited. by 
the present writer and not neces- 
sarily started by him. 

Personnel Structure. 

The Office of the Dean of Men 
is made uv of the Dean of Men and 
ten asistants, his assistants are 
commonly called directors. The 
names of the rectors are as follows: 
Fathers Boucher, 
Maloney, Moriarty, Noel, 
Poirier and Sullivan, 
Charles Pfeifer. 

and = Mr. 

To each of the rectors there is 
as igned a number of boys accord- 
ing to the capacity of the hall of 
which he is in charge. There are 
about 500 students boarding and 
rooming on the campus and about 

250 students off the campus. Out of 

the 250 students who live off the 
campus, about 125 have been placed 
in room. by the school, because 
there were no more rooms avail- 
able on the campus. : 

The Dean of Men is directly in 
charge of all students who are not 
rocming on the campus. 

Each rector hasa room in the hall 
over which he has charge and the 
boys are free to make use of hi: 
assistance at any time. Each rector 
is a competent counsellor and many 
advantages acc:ue to the college 
student in such a setup. Bach rec- 
tor lives with his boys seven days 
a week and in this way he gets bai 
know them very well. 

In former years because of the 
searcity of priesis in the diocese 
and the -neighboring churches it 
was necessary for the priests to 
leave the campus on the weekends 
and go to assist nearby priests 
However, now there is a sufficient 
number of priests at the college 
so that those in charge of hall: can 
remain here during ihe week end. 

The college is very grateful to 
thoze who have taken on the ex- 
‘ra job of bing rectors, because this 
is a job which they hold over and 
above «heir teaching jobs. Tt is ex- 
tremely cifficult for them to be on 
the job all day long, as they do, 
and still prepare classes and teach 
them. Not only that, but it is neces- 
sary for them to stay up late at 
right and-to get up for their own 
duties very early in the morning. 

Hence, being a rector is some- 
‘hing over and above what the 
priest is ordinarily called upon to 
do here at St. Michael’s. These rec- 
tors were free either to accept or 
we refuse when ee were asked to

Distribution of Authority 

One of.the change in the stu- 
deni-staff relationship which has 
been brought about this year “is 
the fact that each rector is almost 
completely in charge of the boys 
within his jurisdiction. Formerly 
the student would go to the Dean 
of Men directly for special per- 
missions such a= laie night out or 
week ends, and so forth. But now 
they go to their own -ector. This 
system ha proven very satisfac- 
tory for the students as well as 
for the Dean of Men. 

With so many students, it would 
be almost impos ible for the Dean 

of Men to interviw every siu- 

dent and to grant him the permis- 
sion. Since the rectors know these 
studenis im thei jurisdiction bet- 
ter than the Dan of Men does, they 
can more readily ee the student’s 
problem when he asks a special 
permission, and they can, there- 
fore, grant it or deny it more jusi- 
ly. The -rectors, therefo e, are al- 
most completely in charge of the 
boys with whom they live. These 
rectors meet about every week 
with the Dean of Men and di ‘cuss 
their problems, and also meet to 
coordinate their activities. 

These mejings ave a unifying 
effect on all the permissions and 
manners of hhandling a common 
p ioblem. At these meeting: there 
are also discussed ways and means 
of being more serviceable to the 
students and the methods of mak- 
ing their college year: more satis- 
factory. It is here, also, that the 
records of an incorrigible student 
would be discussed and his possi- 
ble dismi:sal would be recom-

Reason and Regulation 

It was at such meeting with the 
Dean of Men and his staff that the 
p esent rules were discussed and 
put into effect. In formulating and 
di cussing the rules, the staff was 
motivated mostly by this thought: 
What are the students here for? 
What are they preparing to do? 
How can we help the students who 
come here lead a more satisfactory 
college life and prepare for the fu- 

After a lengthy discussion, it was 
decided that we should let our 
rules conform as closely as possi- 
ble to the rules which the normal 
Catholic lay per-on must observe in 
his daily existence. Most of the stu- 
dents who come to St. Michael’s 
‘are preparing to lead the life of a 
Catholic layman after they get out 
of college, or after they get out of 
g aduate school. The staff thought 
that it would be helping the stu- 
dents best for this life if it could 
set up the proper reflexes here 
om the campus so that the student 
when he finished college could go 
as normally as poszible into the 
secular ife. 

Normal Living 

If the life demanded of the stu- 
dent on th campus were entirely 
different from the normla Catho- 
lic life which a layman would lead 
in the world, then the change 
would be too great. In such a case, 
psychologically, the student would 
have to set in motion a new set of 

reflexes once he had finished col- | 

lege. Of course, the staff was cog- 
nizant of the ee that it could not 
do away enti y with the artifi- 
we as setup,

From The Secretary’s Corner 

Dear Alumnus: 

At the start of another year, the President and Executive Boa 
of the Alumni Association extend to you sincerest wishes for 
blessed and happy New Year. To this Your Secretary adds a pe 
sonal word of thanksgiving to all those who have made our fir 
four months in office easier and more pleasant. 

In reviewing those four months of service, we humbly acknow 
edge a fair share of shortcomings. In most cases they are explain 
by our lack of experience. Undoubtedly inexperience will contin 

ever, that we have learned much: In'so far as we have failed a 
can be expected to remedy the defects, we most certainly shall do s 

To aid us of Alumni Office in this New Year’s resolution, we s 
licit a greater measure of support from the membership. Quite pr 
perly we have acknowledged above the generous services render 
b ymany of the Alumni. Some have manifested genuine enthusias 
for St, Michael’s — have made themselves constantly available 
time of need — have not only personally supported our projects b 
have solicited the support of others whenever possible — final 
and of great importance, have kindly offered much constructive cr 
ticism and many valuable suggestions. To them we again expres 
our appreaciaucn. 

Many others have contributed the minimum or nothing at all 
the success of our Association, Whether this is owing ‘to careless 
ness or to complete -disinterestedness is not known in most case! 
We can only hope it is the first. In which case we hasten to offe 
suggestions or, rather a series of New Year's resolutions. 

Proposed Resolutions 

I. To revivify the genuite Michaelman spirit by an active inte 
est in-Alma Mater-— her tremendous growth — her great strides i 
the scholastic field — the profound changes in her program of d 
rection and self-training — and, finally, the evident leadership ¢ 
her undergraduates in ‘Student Movements. . Every A : 
and should be proud of St. Michael’s accomplishments ! 

2. To pledge a fuller measure of support to the present project 
of the Association —*specifically, the monthly ‘Michaelmen dues, th 
business meetings of your Alumni Chaptér and the Alumni-Studer 
Christmas and/or Easter entertainments. 

Presently the Alumni support of the Michaelmen project — $1.c 
a month dues—is disappointing. 

At the Christmas dances in Boston, ertord! the Berkshires an 
Springfield the Alumni were conspicuous by their absence. We-at 
not attempting flattery when we say that the pendent body want 
to meet you at these affairs. 

3. To be a bit more news conscious! Be convinced t at we ai 
interested in you. We want to kaow where you are and “hat yo 
are doing. This monthly News is for all members. We are happ 
to be informed and to pass on to others the news of our graduate 

4. To maintain and extend our acquaintanceship on the Hillto} 
Your Secretary considers himself a true friend of every Micha¢ 
man, A friendly letter from you is like a note from home. Keé 
them coming! 0 
5. ‘To post the Alumni Office on every change of address — you 
own or others. | 

‘Keeping the files up to date constitutes a major part of our jo 
We just can’t be of full service to you w ithout it. Wou!d you co! 
sider this in the future and be kind enough to help us!

of this, therefore, there had to ]

but, nevertheless, it would try to do 
away with as much of it as possi- 

The student, therefore, was to be 
assistd to take om the responsibilty 
for his own conduct himself. He 
was to be a:sisted to understand 
that it was his life he was leading 
and for which he was preparing, 
and that primarily his conduct was 
his own responsibility. If the stu- 
dent waz made to realize this fun- 
damental fact, then his transition 
from college to secular. life would 
ibe as normal and as natural as pos- 
sible. : 

Although there was ‘to ‘be ‘ 
checking in and no checking © 
on the part of the student, it w 
thought that the student should 1

checkup, therefore, which would

which we were bound to provide 
for all the students. By reason of 
the very nature of this institution,

tle ways one hall can differ from 

Daily Mass 
Of paramount importance, of 
u Se, is the religious life of the 
idenis. This .hould be so be- 
use the religious life of any hu- 
in being is supremely import- 
t. The question of compulsory 
ily Mass was discussed quite at 
ith. It was decided to face the 

ue squarely. Daily Mass was to 
at ‘he hours most convenient for 
> ients. They were to be 
Bed, of course, to attend daiiy 


But is was to be primarily the 
ident’s responsibility of making

to make the students appreci- 
» the all important and the tre- 
ndous value of daily Mass, Be- 
nd that, it felt that‘ it could not 
. Compulsory daily Mass would 
too artificial. It is the cheerful 
‘uniary attendance at daily Mass 
iti most efficacious for any Ca- 
»ic. The pastor of the parish, for 
ance, cannot and does not make 
ly Mass compulsory for his pa- 
hioners, He accepts the challenge 
i endeavors to educate his pa- 
hionrs as to essentials and lasting 
lue of daily Mass. Therefore, it is 
educational process and not a 

From the number of those who 

attend daily Mass voluntarily, we 
can get a picture of the apprecia- 
tion of the students of essential va- 
lues. Compulsory daily Mas: at- 
tendance would not be so reveal- 
ing. It is for reasons such as these, 
that St. Michael’s gave up requi-- 
ing that all students attend daily 
Mass. Some have thought that the 
compulsory daily Mass was done 
away with because of the great in- 
crease of students. « Although the 
student: cannot be gathered to- 
gether in the chapel at the same 
time, the staff still could insist on 
daily Mass attendance by arrang- 
ing two separate hours, one for the 
Freshmen and one for the Upper- 
cla smn. So the lack of space, there- 
fore, is not hte reason for the 
changing of the requirement. 

The same philosophy prompted 
the making of night p ayers volun- 
wary also. It must be mentioned, 
however, that attendance at daily 
Mass and night prayer under these 
conditions has not been very large. 
This fact reveals a ‘erious lack of 
appreciation of essential values on 
the part of many of the studenis, 
‘All this is very revealing indeed. 

The Office of the Dean of Men 

There is such a distribution af 
the work which formerly was done 
only by the Dean of Men that it 
might be asked, just. whai does the 
Dean of Men do? Even under the 
present distribution of functions, 
the Dean of Men is still able to find 
enough work to keep him busy the 
customary 14 hours a day. 

The w iter was e pecially anvr- 
ious to get the discipline angle 
formerly connected with the Dean 
of Men’s office, out of his immedi- 
ate jurisdiction. ~At present, the 
rectors are the ones who exercise 
that funciion, if they wish, with 
ihe boys over whom they are in 
charge. It wa: hoped that if the 
“policeman” idea were takn out of 
the Office of the Dean of Men, the 
students would feel f eer to come 
im and discuss whatever problems 
are common to the students. 

From the writer’s experience in: 
the variou. counseling and: psychia- 
trie clinic: in Washington, it be- 
came evident that such endeavor 
is more effective when the threat 
of autho ity is not present. By dis- 
tributing the functions of this office 
2 was hoped that the authorita'iv- 

‘vhreat” would be brought to an 
absolute minimum. And so in the- 
ory, at least, it has, But it is: inter- 
esting to note how difficul it is to 
make the students comprehend this 
volution . 

Many are gradually getting to 
know the official stand gf ine O- 
fice, but many of the students still 
lock upon the office as the place of 
la t resort, that is, a place where 
you are sent just before you get 
your “walking papers.” As far as 
the writer is concerned, of course, 
this is a false notion, but it may 
take years before the present atti- 
tude is understood by the students. 

All in all, however, it must be 
siated that the p-esent setup has 
proven very interesting for all con- 
cerned. From all reports, the stu- 
cents seem to prefer to conduct 
themselves conscious of the fact 
that the college restrictions are at 
a minimum and they, themselves, 
are the ones who are primarily re- 
ponsible before God for their own 

After all, isn’t that what God 
asks of each of us anyway? 


The annual. Christmas dances 

sponsored jointly by the Alumni 
Chapter and the Student Campus 
Clubs reached a new high this sea- 
Son. Reporis from all centers indi- 
cate that attendance among under- 
‘graduate: was good, despite threat- 
ening weather. A spirit of joy and 
fellowship p evailed which bids 
“fair to make St. Michael’s dances 
the supreme event of the holiday 
season in many cities. 

One defect marred the otherwise 
bright picture — the disappointing 
attendance of the alumni. At no 
one of the affairs was the nummber 
of grads present anywhere nea! 
what it could and should have 
been. Once again we remind the 
members of the necessiiy of their 
support. Your presence help: us to 
realize the purpose of such activi- 
ties and gives a tone +o them that 
may otherwise be lacking. We 
hea tily encourage at this time your 
generous Cooperaiion in the future.

Frosh Quintet Aiming 
For Clean Slate In 1948 

Coach George “Doc” Jacobs who 
before the war made a habit of 
turning out undefeated freshmen 
teams at Villanova has the makings 
of another c ack frosh team in his 
fir:t season at St. Michael’s. 

His freshmen in their four regu- 
lar games before the Chvistmas 
holidays not only won, but ran 
up a total of 273 points to the oppo- 
sitions’ 109, One of those win was 
a 101-10 victory over the Burling- 
two wre over Rutland Junior Col- 
ton Business College and the next 
lge 68-24 and over Vermont Junior 
College 52-27. Only the Middle- 
bury College f-eshmen pushed the 
Jacobs’ forces, the Michalemen win- 
ning 52-48_ 

Jacobs served notice that he had 
a fast club when the froh in an 
exhibition game on President’s day 
at St. Michael’s ran away with the 
varsity, 61-42. That was the same 
varsity team that, by virtue of its 
56-40 win over Middlebury, is al- 
ready being regarded as the proba- 
ble state champions.

Rise in pre-season “paper” ra- 
ings turn out to be prize flops. And 
vice versa. 

St. Michael’s Purple Knights 

weren't given much more than an 
outside chance when the season 
stated of finishing wit ha .500 mark. 
Perhaps they still won’t reach that 
goal, but they’er doing a good job 
so far, 
_ George (Doc) Jacobs walked into 
a team that had managed an 11 to 
§ record last yera with no better 
than a .500 mark in ctate competi- 
tion.The omly difference between 
his material and that of the 1946- 
47 season was that two players 
who between them scored over 400 
voints weer gone. 

There is no no indication yet 
that this year’s club will do any 
more than was expected of them 

when the team first started practice. 

but two factors in the team’s play 
that has kept them going at a .444 
pace (as of Wednesday morning) 
can both be credited to Jacobs’ di- 

The most important of these fac- 
tors lis the more closely-knit team 
offen ive play. The Knights are 
not only shaking loose for their 
shots but ‘they’re making a good 
percentage of them, because they 
are helping each other. 

The second is the psychological 
attitude with which the majority 
of the club enters each game. Un- 
derdogs practically everytime they 
take the court, the players con- 

cede nothing, disregard their op- 
go Dunkel rating and take 
%, game as it comes. 

xtent that i “will | do anything 
Geactline age year, but team play 
the right attitude will win plenty 
of games for St. Michael’s in the 
near futu e when the right com- 
bination is lined up. 

Jacobs has the nucleu: of’a great 
team in his freshmen He needs a 
6-foot-plus center and another big 
man, but in Wart, Markey and 
Walsh he has three ball players 
better than any comparable trio 
on any va sity in state competition 
right now. 

(Next year, the state title— if we 
take it this year — will be baick 
heré on he hilltop for the first time 
since 1939-40. This is no idle state- 
ment, for it doesn’t look like any- 
thing can stop the Mikemen 12 
months hence. 

™n 1950 — well let’s leave it at 
thet for now.
