My head still Bernie Wegener</p> <p>To this day, I ca n still see Brother Sylveste r collecting these books and carrying them sometimes 18 to 24 inches high. His face was beet red as he staggered to his desk, which already was stac ked with books that he had colle cted earlier in the study hall. Joe Schulte</p> <p>It was our junior year, when Major Winiarczy k was the Army commander on si te. We all remember he was not well liked by the cadet corp s because of the after school parades and the number of times we had to keep doing it un til we get it right. - Vince To olen</p> <p>uld not Brother Paschal co d up and see.

He then looked down to the ground to see if the person had fallen from his shoes. - B ill Kraft</p> <p>Memories of CB C have always been good for m e.

My graduation class at St. Josephs in Manchester consisted of 4 boys and 2 girls. Manchester , of course, is 6-7 miles west of Lindbergh Blvd (still pretty much the western edge of the civilized world in the early fifties). Good grief, it wasnt until years later that I realized I grew up in West County. I car-pooled with my dad into Webster Groves where I caught a McCausland-Delor bus to the Maplewood Loop, then up Bellevue on a City Limits bus to 6501 Clayton Road. These werent just any buses, they were St Louis Public Service buses; not St Louis County buses!) Who are all these guys on this bus? They seem to know everybody else and appear to be so experienced. Those 2 guys over there look like they shave! My life on the turnip truck was about to end. The 1st guy I remember at CBC is Vince Comparato (God bless him). Vince sure looked grown-up, and as it turned out, he probably was; since he wasnt much bigger when we graduated. His smile however was always big. And then there was Gary Dudley; he was big enough to go to work! I occupied bench space on the Cee football team (Was that Bill Rogers sitting next to me?). What an experience with coach Klemm! He seemed to be frustrated a good deal of the time. I remember at the end of the season, as The Coach reminisced He regretted that he hadnt stood up in front of us at the first practice with a football in hand and said, Gentlemen, This is a FOOTBALL. A visual remembrance, from those days, was a game at old Public Schools stadium with Jim Gallo coming off the field with his face pretty beat up and going right back in after a play or two. I thought, Thats a scrappy guy. Come to think of it though, there were a lot of scrappy guys on the team. The worst aspect of this C-team experience was getting home after practice; especially when daylight saving time ended. I had to get home to Carman road. That meant hitchhiking all the way, with the constant fear that the guy in the car headed toward me was Major Winiarczyk (a sweetheart if there every was one).

Some of the R.O.T.C. memories are learning the manual of arms and doing drills and marching around the track during military classes on cold days. Also as freshmen, while the Korean War was going on, seeing the seniors taking bayonet training on the west field; and also after recreation period forming lines with whistles blowing and marching into the building in about three minutes probably to the envy of all other school administration; and also the yearly march to St. Lukes Church and opening year Mass. Remember the federal inspection, the parade and number of cadets fainting during the inspection, and M1 thumbs and the march, The Thunderer. I remember Brother Joels class on trigonometry and the multiplication and division of seemingly infinite numbers I the days before calculators. I remember Brother Laurence Matthias after our usual free discussion at the beginning of class saying almost curtly, The subject, gentlemen, is now chemistry (or religion). Remember when the classes were reduced in the fall of 1954 when the seniors in the National Guard had to go to Jeff City during the prison riot? . . . Rev.
