|Bob Moulin very kindly contributed the images and info below on the class of '48.
The class of 1948 made its own contributions to New Orleans and America, filled, as it was, with
worthy young men, many of whom would, in time, become noteworthy in their chosen professions.

All games in the regionals will be played in the afternoon, according to Coach Eddie
Toribio, who was in Hattiesburg Friday to see the state playoff and who is expected
to attend the Arkansas finals this afternoon in Little Rock.
Austin defeated St. Thomas of Houston in two extra-inning games to defeat the lads
for the Texas playoff.
New Orleans will be able to send its kid champions to various cities and towns to
compete in championship and inter-city games very soon, we understand the city's
department of recreation will have its own bus.
It's a pity the bus, which is expected to arrive next week, could not have come
It would have saved lots of headaches for those seeking accommodations to send
the VFW softball teams to the national tournament.
Dick Sallinger of the Aloysius Crusaders and Frank Rapp of the Redemptorist Rams
