A class has come into being, has had its brief existence, and departs. The men that were drawn together that September day four years ago, bid each other farwell and scatter again along the various paths whence they came. We own but a few more days of life as a Notre Dame organization. Thereafter we are but members of the Alumni — that shadowy entity that is mentioned vaguely in connection with oil paint- ings, banquets and " Needs of Notre Dame. " But in the brief time allotted to us, we live as the " Old Guard, " the " Gang " and the " Bunch. " Many have fallen by the wayside since that beautiful October evening when Jim Sanford led us into Sorin Law Room and coyly suggested that we ought to have a class president. Naturally we acquiesced, fearing to unwittingly trespass upon staid convention. Sanford put over the Freshman banquet that year, and it was a very decided success. Hayes and Lenihan made their debut on that occasion as after-dinner speakers. Joe Byrne — Siren Joe, sometime ' Varsity cheer leader — was toastmaster, and acquitted himself with the ease of a Chauncey Depew. We won the boat race that year and " Army " Armstrong painted the numerals of ' 15 on the boathouse, where all who stroll may read. In our Sophomore year Jim was again made president, and Kuhle, Pliska and Roach officiated in various capacities sometime since forgotten. We numbered among our celebrities most of the football stars, a generation of gridiron heroes arising concommittantly with the entrance of Fifteen. Eichenlaub was and still is, with us. So were and are, " Deac " Jones, " Sam " Finnegan, " Joe " Pliska and " Bill " Kelleher. Formerly of Fifteen, were Larson, Nowers, Armstrong and Guppy. They, with Kiley, Byrne, " Red " Finnegan, " Shorty " McNamara, O ' Boyle, Harvat, Stull and Murphy have gone their various ways, leaving the class to that extent impoverished of sterling brain and brawn. The Sophomore year witnessed a reversal of form in rowing, that permitted the lowly Freshman to defeat us in the presence of some thousands of spectators. And that was the year, too, when Sanford ' s proteges blossomed forth in new uniforms with " 15 " and crossed oars adorning their manly bosoms. Jim didn ' t mind the defeat as much as he did the necessity of collecting fifteen cents per capita. He actually had 85 cents assembled before he decided to pay for them himself. The ' Varsity swamped Marquette, the Sophomore dance was a success, Linehan and Smith made the de- bating teams, (Linehan for the second time) and Schuster and Duncan joined the class. The third year was no less remarkable. Sanford was deposed and Roach made president. The greatest football season in the history of Gold and Blue ath- letics was staged for our edification. The Junior Prom broke all records as a social and financial success. We vanquished metaphysics and cosmology. Schuster broke into the rank of class orator and with Lincolnian logic swept his way into debating honors. Eichenlaub got the loving cup, Gargon and Havlin got other things, every 44 ;very- I ■ ■■■■■J SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS body was receiving something. The Dome was gotten under way. It was an aus- picious year, unmarred by untoward circumstances. Cheerfully we departed in June, everybody but Lenihan trekking homewards. How fitting that our fourth year should be the best as well as the last! General per for everybody (until 7:30), most of our philosophy behind us. Roach again president, everything nicely adjusted for smooth sailing. Then Logic, and the great- est free-for-all flunkfest ever staged in this institution. Woe, gloom, and catastro- phe! One by one we extricated ourselves from conditions, McShane being the last to emerge. Once again all was harmony. Except for the heartrending shrieks from the Dome board all was tranquility. Schuster, Lenihan et al, orated as was their custom. Harold Madden moved to the Lilacs, and Riddle and Walters entered the fold. " Bob, " besides the Dome and Mishawaka, had such trifles as the Senior Ball, class pins, flag presentations, et cetera, to keep him occupied. Hayes, Heam and Stack spent their waking hours in quest of copy, squeegees, ads and other Dome stuff. Everybody mourned the specific agony incident to getting out their particular and specific thesis. But the end is here. A few days more and we receive our de- grees, assemble our belongings and say farewell to the school and to the class. That which seemed so long and difficult, when viewed with Freshman eyes, becomes, in Senior perspective, pleasant indeed, and all too brief. Ours have been happy years at old Notre Dame. We regret the necessity of parting, but hope that it will be only to grasp greater opportunities beyond the pale of school life. As a class we have " made good " at Notre Dame. We hope that as individuals we shall " make good " in that life-long battle for success, which Com- mencement will inaugurate. L 45 Jl Senior Law Class History ut three short years ago we were looking for the graduation star " as through a glass, darkly, " and now that the coveted goal is so near at- tainment, we look back upon those happy days of preparation through a perspective that minimizes the many tribulations, that loomed so large at the time. How many fearful obstacles we summoned up for " horrid imaginings " and how trivial they appear now that the end approaches. We thought, when first entangled in torturing torts and their innumerable legal accomplices, that the plutocratic gentlemen who had to make their exit through a camel or a needle or some such — we skived most of our dogma classes — had a soft job by comparison with our endeavor to garner a degree. As Freshmen we were wont to shirk the duties imposed upon us by the renowned " Red " Callahan, who knew the law and dispensed it liberally, leavened with subtle wit and caustic sarcasm. In those days of embryonic aspiration, it was customary for fledgling barristers to con- vene in Walsh Hall. There we sat in awesome contemplation of the great careers that one day should be our own. Contemplation of said career, as we have just re- marked, dimmed the glamour of social joys in town. We did not dance. Neither— if memory serves aright — did we dine. Ascetic application, knowledge in large hunks, weariness and vacation. Thus the epitomized story of Fresh Law ' 15. As Freshmen we envied the Juniors. As Juniors we pitied the Freshmen. We mourned the loss of such luminaries as " Otsego Mike " Kelly, " Author " Boos and " Ragtime " Cassidy. We fain would have wept, but that insistent craving for legal lore, denied us the time. So those who returned talked not of those who had not, but rather discoursed upon the intricacies of Domestic Relations and the possible result of Taltarums Case. We gloried in our ability to arouse Freshman envy by facile reeling off of Latin maxims and the celebrated doctrines of Coke, Bracton, Blackstone, et al. Tom Hearn, our august president, breaking away from the fas- tidiousness of Freshmen days, decided to take us to a buffet luncheon in Mishawaka. There, was oratory made endurable by edibles. There, was pledged the undying fraternal spirit of Law Fifteen. It was with this lofty feeling, thus convivially en- gendered, that we started in the last lap, sans the redoubtable " Bill " Donovan, Irish orator, whose quest for knowledge and Irish environment led him to other fields. Cognizant of the value of example, the class of Law ' 15 organized immediately, choosing " Rupe " Mills, ' Varsity athlete and thespian, as president, with " Sam " L 46 ■ J SENIOPv LAW CLASS OFFICERS Finegan. football and basketball star, as his understudy. " Zipper " Lathrop was made record keeper and " Larry " Lajoie comptroller of the currency. In suitable recognition of his enormous size and dignified mien, " Shorty " Durrell, of motorcycle notoriety, was made sergeant-at-arms. The rule in Shelley ' s Case having been tracked to its recondite lair, we plunged into musty volumes with the instatiate greed for wisdom that the other years had not worn off. We labored long and well, and behold, here is the parchment " laurel of success. " In our midst mighty men have lived and had their being. There is McCamic, who, though van- quished, can argue still. There is Lawler, who knows a great deal that he cannot resurrect extemporaneously. There is Heam, Dome business manager, of fair Urbana; Finegan, the handsome, athletic student, and " Beauty " Rohan, student of athletics. There is Amos Clay, of the drawl and unwavering faith in the " Res ipsa loquiter " doctrine. And there are many others, mighty figures all, whose names shall some day cast light over the land. We are now about to leave the scene of our preparation, and march forth to the battle which we so confidently await. We are armed with the wisdom of Judge Howard, kindest and gentlest of men; we are fortified with the learning of Colonel Hoynes and stirred to emulation of his rugged, fearless, straightforward character. To our professors, to our fellows and to old Notre Dame, we bid a loyal and affec- tionate farewell. L 47 nl JOHN T. ANDREWS, Min. E., LL. B. " Jack " was never a man of many words, but everybody has the assurance that when he does say a thing he means it. This accounts for the universal goodwill which he receives from all acquaintances. But one thing en which he will talk for hours, is the greatness of Montana and the " Golden West. " Three years age he en- tered the Notre Dame law school with an M. E. from the Montana School of Mines. He in- tends to make a specialty of mining law when he hangs out his shingle in Butte. " Jack ' s " bulletin marks were above 90% always, and his visits out on Michigan Avenue were as punctual as his attendance at class. FRANK OCTAVE BARTEL, C. E. We are not ashamed to confess that we never heard of Blue Earth, Minn., until September, 1911, neither are we afraid that from June, 1915, we are not going to hear a great deal about one of her native sons. " Bart " never has much to say but he makes up for this by doing things — just ask any inter-hall left tackle who opposed him in the years when he helped to put old St. Joe at the top of the heap in football. Frank knows Engineering also and has the habit of getting his name on the 90% roll of honor quite regularly. He has built a good foundation and will climb. NORMAN CLETUS BARTHOLOMEW, Ph. B. " Bart " is the most genuine example of the Pennsylvania Dutchman to be found in Indi- ana. He has of course suffered somewhat from environment since the famous " Wotes for Vimmen " lecture, but not sufficiently to damage his reputation. Particularly since his heart has not changed. " Bart " is the best natured, kindest, most amiable lad we have ever known. If you don ' t believe us ask the South Bend ladies. Moreover, he is a great history student, and a fine track man. Golden success is his when he gets back to dear old Pennsylvania. In fact, no matter where he goes his genial nature and real ability wfll open all gates. 48 ■ J, SEVERIN ALOYSIUS BECK, Litt. B. In 191 1 Severin Aloysius Beck, alias " Willie Hoppe " commenced leaning over Corby pool tables, and wearing a gray flannel shirt. He proved conclusively that an N. D. military shirt could endure at least nine consecutive months of hard usage. After two years of Corby life. " Willie " left us and transferred himself and baggage to Prairie du Chien. Last fall he re- turned and became one of us again. During his spare time (which takes up most of the day) he soothes his restless spirit by attacking the piano or in a peaceful walk in the neigh- borhood of St. Mary ' s or on Michigan Street " giving the girls a treat. " ALVIN LOUIS BERGER, Ph. B. Nobody knows him except as " Heinie, " but under that title he is universally popular for his quiet genial ways, and never-failing good humor. He was about to get a diploma last year, but at the last moment, decided he loved Notre Dame too well to leave. " Heinie " be- gan his classic education at Western State Normal, where he won a big reputation as a mound artist. Since coming to Notre Dame, he has not only increased it, but has also made a mark as a half-back of first water and a finished artist. As a litterateur he stands high, having a knowledge of Shakespeare, Sioux, Cowboy dialect and slang. " Heinle ' s " circle of lady friends in the neighboring metropolis is wide and variegated. Besides getting a di- ploma, he has won three football, and baseball monograms. JOSE BERNANDO BRACHO, C. E. Some four years ago this quiet and amiable young gentleman came to Notre Dame and, since then, has gained a reputation for being an excellent and unusually successful student of Civil Engineering. He has spent many hours with his favorite mathematic problems, and his high averages show that the time was not wasted. Jose is also a " chess shark. " His recreation is spent in handball and extensive walks about the quadrangle and it is also known that he writes many letters to Asbury Park, New York. His chances for the future are good ones and we wish him well. L 49 iihbh hI STEPHEN EMMET BURNS, E. E. Be it Stephen, Steve, or Etienne, to us it is just plain " Steve. " He is a wonderful pianist and unlike most people who are so gifted, he is always willing to play. " Steve ' s " music has helped many of us to forget our troubles in the last four years and we shall remember his talents for many years to come. " Steve " is exceedingly friendly and always looking for sensational and scandalous news. He might have made a great mistake in selecting Engi- neering as a life work, for if he had followed Journalism, we feel sure that some day " Steve " would be Editor of the " Ladies Home Com- panion " or " Vanity Fair. " HARDY JOSEPH BUSH, LL. B. For three long years Hardy has been one of the pillars of Walsh Hall, not only in athletics but in every other field of meritorious en- deavor. Besides his fame as an " Al " mixer ' he enjoys a reputation for being a zealous stu- dent of the law (some distinction in the home of gilded wealth) an inter-hall baseball and basketball star, and a leader in the " doings " that make college life what it is. Hardy has made a plucky fight for a position on the foot- ball squad and has been runner-up for several stellar places. Certainly it is no disgrace to fail to land a berth with All-Western stars like the renowned Dorais and the fleet footed Berg- man. Hardy has been a man of consequence at N. D. and he goes back to Newark with abundant legal lore and the best wishes of hosts of friends. ROBERT LOUIS BYRNES, LL. B. " Bob " Byrnes admits he is from Iowa and thereby establishes the fact that he is a great man. He entered school in 1912 and imme- diately took it upon himself to show " Bill " Donovan and another Brownson protege the " lights " of South Bend. Since that episode, " Bob " has degenerated into the earnest deter- mined student of the Law. Whenever the " prof " is absent " Bob " entertains the learned Seniors with all the savoir of the Colonel him- self. When not taking notes on Somers ' type- writer Robert spends all his time in the law library. As a result he is noted for making the best speech to the jury in Moot court this year. If " Bob " returns to Iowa and does not become a Democrat, we expect to see him in the sen- ate some day. L 60 J ARTHUR RODERICK CARMODY, E. E. As " Art " is one of the most versatile men who ever graduated from N. D. it is impossible to enumerate his accomplishments in this short space. He won his monogram in 1912 and 1913. He has entertained us for five years with his wonderful music, and his stories of the jungles of Louisiana, and he is founder of most of the University secret orders. " Art " was never known to frown at anything and takes life about as easy as anyone we know. He gained fame as a member of the " Wolves, " the " Blood and Wonder Society, " the " Mid- night Prowling Club, " and the " Sorin Bug Col- lection. " " Art " is an authority on engineering. Keystone Charley and the " Mange Cure. " FRANCIS MICHAEL CARMODY, M. E. " Mike " is one of the few men the " profs " have never been able to fathom and to know him is an education in itself. He has been into most everything (including the dinky list on " several " occasions) and some of the " King ' s " gray hairs are said to have been caused by " Mike ' s " four years ' stay in Corby. He gained the reputation of being a star in inter-hall football and baseball, chief mogul of the Sorin Glee Club, a master musician and a champion dark gum chewer. Some combina- tion! " Mike " generally sleeps in Sorin but not always in the same room. His natural talent in many lines along with his ability to make friends will be a big factor in getting him up the l adder. WILLIAM MICHAEL CARROLL, LL. B. This blackhaired judicial looking Senior has been set down in the books as one who knows the law. While not one of those pestiferous individuals, who have a question for the judge every three minutes, yet it would be difficult to recall a time when he has been called upon and found wanting. As did Hayes and Hurly the learned and witty men of ' 14 fame. Bill, at an early age, broke away from Woodstock, 111., to learn to " have the law on people, " and has proved that he has in him the making of a great attorney. Almost the baby of the class he has been a leader in his course, a well- known man on the campus, in a word, a Notre Dame man. 51 I ■!■■■■■ L GERALD SAMUEL CLEMENTS, LL. B. Quiet, unassuming, studious, obliging, and a Southern gentleman; that ' s Jerry. Last Octo- ber Jerry thought we had an unbeatable foot- ball team; he was mistaken. As a consequence he wore out a S5.00 pair of shoes walking to Chicago and also had his picture in the Herald. Still he ' s unassuming. He spends his spare moments debating, and as President of the Kentucky Club, quelling riots when Moonshine and Beautiful Women are discussed at the same meeting. His busier hours are devoted to the Law, for the " Owensboro Messenger " states that in June there will be a new law firm of Clements Clements in that city. WALTER LOUIS CLEMENTS, A. B., A. M. Walter Clements comes from Kentucky and is a loyal son of that great state. He is a close friend of Erich Hans de Frees and they are often heard conversing in Greek, Latin, Ger- man and Arabic. Walter expects to receive a Master of Arts degree in June and then return to try for an LL. B. He is a close student and a literary man of great ability. As a poet he has rivaled Poe in his " Raven " for Walter has put several of his works to music. We watch with patience his graduation, for he and his cousin Jerry will engrave the name of CLEMENTS on Kentucky history. JOHN MAURICE CULLIGAN, Litt. B. " Jack " entered our midst last September and soon became one of the " notables. " His foot- ball ability led us to believe we had found a fit substitute for " Dory, " but his thirst for knowledge overcame his love for athletics and he will rest on the laurels he won at St. Paul, Fort Wayne, Wabash, and Mishawaka. When the " Silver Edges " were removed from Sorin athletics, naturally " Jack " objected, but all in vain. During his spare moments the " Dancing Master " tells weird tales of life at St. Thomas and lectures on professional and amateur ath- letics. He is a star in the Radiator League, the Sorin Fire Department, a skilled skiver, a bug on society — in fact everything the N. D. stu- dent implies. 52 ■ J AMOS ALBERT CLAY, LL. B. He does not boast of being a descendant of that great American, Henry Clay, still he has shown qualities of leadership, especially in military circles. Amos has always taken a great interest in affairs connected with the batallion and was captain of Ccmpany F for four years, also chief advisor to Colonel Walter on all German proclamations. It is said that he won a bronze medal for bravery during the Dayton floods. Captain Clay intends to enter West Point and we feel sure that some day we shall read of his deeds in the Army and Navy Journal. DWIGHT PAUL CUSICK, Ph. B., LL. B. " Cuz " faces the world armed with seven years of college work, two degrees, the assurances of a thousand friends and a profound knowledge of human nature. He knows the ways of the world and of men clear down to the roots, and has the good sense to be merely a spectator when to be a spectator is the part of wisdom. But this does not mean that he is not " one of us. " He is, above all and always, " one of us, " and we will miss him. In his keenness and uprightness we see the forerunners of his cer- tain success as a lawyer and of the reformation of Crooksville. JOHN FRANCIS DELPH, Ph. C. This attractive and studious young Hoosier is unusually reserved and consequently we have seen little of him on the Campus. However, in class work he has let himself out completely. There are few who have responded for their profs as well as " Jack " has. His great hobby is chemistry and the ability he shows in com- pounding pills makes us believe that some day he will be at the top in the medical profession. He is not afraid of hard work, and this, cou- pled with natural talent in Ph. C. bra nches, will mean that success is a mere matter of time. L S3 PATRICK HENRY DOLAN, A. B. Illinois must average as much rainfall as Ore- gon, otherwise how could so great a man as this be produced ? Pat needs no introduction. .His avoirdupois and his cheerfulness, together, . have contributed to make him well-known and well-liked at Notre Dame. He is a great fa- vorite with Father Oswald, for whom he opens and closes windows. Pat has the reputation of being a man you can ' t keep down. After four years in debating and oratory, he has climbed to the top, made a place on the debat- ing team and been chosen one of the bachelor orators. EDWARD DEAN DUGGAN, LL. B. " Eddie, " the pride of Sorin " subway, " has been visiting the past school year with Harold Munger. He spends most of his time and nickels at the picture shows. " Eddie " has a natural tendency to grow bald and therefore has taken Lillian Russell ' s advice to attend hair- raising pictures. As a side dish, " Dug " is pur- suing the law and as a plunging fullback, has thrilled the spectators with his invincible on- slaughts. His work as a fielder and hitter has won several baseball monograms. Let it also be known that he is captain of this years ' nine. We will soon expect to hear reports of his suc- cess coming from Greenwood, Indiana. MARK LINDSEY DUNCAN, Ph. B. This distinguished South Bender joined us in our Sophomore year but soon overcame the handicap and made many friends in a very short time. Mark grows regular moustaches, writes for the Scholastic and lives down town. That is all we have against him. Now for the good things. He is our vice-president, an edi- tor of the Dome and an all-American chair- man of dance committees. To his clever ideas and willingness to work is due a big share of the credit for our unusually successful social affairs. Mark has no bad habits, is a real stu- dent and would make an ideal husband. 54 ■ J LOUIS FRANCIS DURRELL, LL. B. He is better known as " Nappy, " or " Shorty " and originally came from Alpine, Texas. His first year at Notre Dame was spent, more or less, in seclusion, but the second year witness- ed his real coming into the limelight. His savings of the previous year purchased a motorcycle, which afforded " Shorty " rare mo- ments of pleasure and other passengers rare moments of anxiety. Louis, the " Speeding Venus, " proved himself a legal celebrity in the most sensational case of Moot Court. Although the Court rapped for order several times, " Nappy " heeded not and bravely held his own. We hope he will always be as fat and pros- perous looking as he is at present. VINCENT JOHN ECK, B. S. A. We suspect that " Vint " has been taking a spe- cial interest of late in plans for a bungalow. We are not sure why he has done so, but the eastern mail brings a message from Williams- port quite frequently and you know what it means to have curly hair and a sunny dis- position. If hard work counts for anything, we shall have no fears for " Vints " future. It is no easy matter to represent " Nig " Kane ' s town at N. D. but " Vint " has done so with success and we hope Pennsylvania will con- tinue to supply us with men of such calibre. RAYMOND JOSEPH EICHENLAUB, B. S. A. " Eich " is the pride of the Class of ' 15. He is known to the world as one of America ' s great- est athletes; he is known to his classmates as one of the world ' s best gentlemen, and he is known to his teachers as a man singularly en- dowed with architectural ability. For four years Eichenlaub has filled the position of full- back on the varsity football team as no other man could have filled it. He has gained all- Western and all-American recognition. Notre Dame loves " Eich " for what he has done; but even better for what he is, a big, true, gen- erous, free-hearted man, a gentleman always and a friend beyond compare. ■ i 55 JI L JOSEPH RICHARD FARRELL, E. E. Here we have a most likeable and enterprising representative of Macedon, N. Y. He delights to tell of his home town and always stands out as a rather prominent part of it. Lately, how- ever, he has diverted his energy. He was dis- appointed by one of his friends recently and is now busy cultivating a new one. " Frickey " scored high in his Electrical course and, as a side issue, he assisted Father Irving in the work of the local weather bureau. He is character- ized by his optimism and genial ways. We hope that his high ambitions will be fully re- alized. REV. EMMANUEL A. FERNANDEZ, B.S.BioL Padre Emmanuel was born in Malvedo, Aus- turias, and received his early education in the public schools of that town. His vocation was the priesthood. He received the habit in the House of Ocana, January, 1903, and made his profession at Toledo, October, 1904. The missionary Bishop of Tonquin, Asia, conferred on him the sub-deaconship at Avila. He was ordained priest in 1913 by Arch-bishop Blenk at New Orleans. In September of that year we first met him on the Campus of N. D. and noted his peculiar walk, graceful gestures, and listened with interest to his stories of Spain. He skives to town occasionally to indulge in a ham omelet, his favorite vegetable. CHARLES THOMAS FINEGAN, LL. B. If called upon to select the ideal college man from the Class of ' 15, our choice would un- doubtedly be Finegan. When he came to Notre Dame from the far West, four years ago, he brought with him a handsome face, a strong body, a brilliant mind, and a manly character, — all of which gave indication that he was to be heard from during his sojurn with us. In football and in basketball he has been one of the mainstays of the varsity; in baseball and in track he has been an inter-hall star. He is recognized as Notre Dame ' s most brainy ath- lete and well he deserves that reputation. Notre Dame sends Finegan back to the West, an able lawyer and a man whose character is so far above the ordinary that he is sure to smash the line of life for great gains. 56 ALLEN HENRY ELWARD, LL. B. " Mel, " who camps in the depths of Sorin, is always ready to crack a joke (including street car conductors). His " Sanitol " smile spreads sunshine through the dingy " subway. " Like " Ha m and Eggs " so " Mel " and " Zipper " go to- gether on their train wrecking expeditions. " Mel " is an ardent Law student and while not engaged in such work he spends his time in running down punts, and chasing flies on the baseball field. He won his monogram in foot- ball and it was said that " Mel " was one of the best ends in the West last year. May his ad- vance in the legal profession be as rapid as his progress on the gridiron. HILTON WARNER GOODWYN, LL.B.. Litt.B. Here is a man who came to Notre Dame to work and he certainly carried out his inten- tions. He brought his own library with him and after installing it in his room he found space for his bed and was happy. The few of us who know Goodwyn have found him to be a very friendly and interesting fellow. Books have monopolized his time so completely that we know but little of him. Mr. Goodwyn was greatly surprised, in Father Carrico ' s Ethics, to know that his young classmates could ask such intelligent questions on the subject of marriage. EDWARD GEORGE GUSHURST, Ph. B. In Gus ' early days, he was petitioned by an English professor to mention South Dakota every time he spoke of Lead. Now that in- junction is unnecessary, for he has quietly and sufficiently succeeded in putting his native burg on the map. True, he has not repeated the athletic and oratorial prowness of his great brother, but he has made so many friends that he has come to be one of the popular men of the school. At present he is a much respected Major in the local military organization — an institution he has always put his soul into, — and is the industrious art-editor of the Dome. We do not know the lines his future will as- sume, but as to its radiant quality there can be no doubt. ■ 57 JOSEPH FRANCIS GARGEN, LL. B. When it comes to being a " Jack of all trades " this Massachussets lad is awarded the plush album. He has done a little bit of everything and promises to do much more in the future. Put Joe in any surroundings or any position and he will " get away " like a million. His versatility was best shown this year when he rode the rods half way to New Haven in tramp costume, then came back and rode through the streets of South Bend as the leading man in the big fashion parade. He played both parts to perfection. As a politician, budding lawyer, actor, emergency nurse, master of the manly art of self-defense, football coach, a friend and all-around good fellow, Joe is hard to beat. ARTHUR JAMES HAYES, Ph. B. For the last nine months this prodigy of the Senior class, has worked, planned, begged, pleaded, and sacrificed himself continually for the success of the 1915 Dome. As Editor-in- Chief, Art more than came up to the great things expected of him. As Editor of the Sch- olastic, as an essayist, and short-story writer, as an all-around literary genius he will be re- membered for many years. " Bishop ' s " com- mand of words, and especially the big ones, is marvelous. His future should be a rosy one and we believe that some day we shall be proud to tell our friends that we used to go to school with Arthur Hayes. KERNDT MICHAEL HEALY, Litt. B. Prof. Riddle spent several weeks in looking up Kerndt ' s genealogy and insists that the given name signifies that he is from some ancient family. Kerndt has toured Europe and Asia and his friends sit for hours listening to his vivid portrayal of the wonders of those coun- tries. Jim Riddle, also maintains that this youthful prodigy of learning speaks English, French, Spanish, German. Latin, Italian, Egypt- ' ian, Arabic and Sanskrit. We don ' t know whether this accusation is well founded or not, but we do know that Kerndt is one of the most thorough, systematic and successful students in the University. 5S J THOMAS HUGH HEARN. LL. B. It is difficult to do justice to Tom on account of the many honors acquired by him in the last three years, during which time he gained the reputation of being a " bear " for worlc, a mighty good student, a popular and unusually capable fellow. Tom did not really come into his own until the second year of his N. D. career, when he received the rare distinction of being elected president of his class and business manager of the Dome of ' 15. This latter office is one that required days and days of disagreeable work and too much praise cannot be given in appreciation of Tom ' s labors in this capacity, as to him is due much of the success of our annual. In his study of the Law, this " emi- nent jurist " of the Moot Court has done won- ders and his prospects for the future are to be envied. JOHN FELIX HYNES. Ph. B., LL. B. " Shorty " is one of our best Iowa products. While at the University he has confined him- self mostly to the studious life. Aside from the pursuit of Law he has devoted part of his time to athletics, having been the all inter-hall quarterback last year. The stage of Washing- ton Hall has been graced by his form, both as an orator and an actor. We must not forget that " Shorty " is one of the " nine elders " that board on the P. C. table. With the knowledge obtained from his Ph. B. and LL. B. courses and with his ability as an orator and debator. he should worry about his future. KEITH KENNETH JONES, M. E. " Deac ' s " five well-spent years at Notre Dame have brought him much in the way of knowl- edge, friends and reputation. As a student, the " sheriff " has been a hard worker and will be rewarded by a Mechanical Engineering de- gree. On the football field " Deac " has ex- celled to the extent of four monograms and had the enviable distinction of being captain of last year ' s team. He had no mercy on opposing linemen and caused many headaches in four years. Off the gridiron " Deac " is more gentle, despite the fact that he mangles your fingers in a friendly handshake. " Deac " goes back to Montana, taking with him the best wishes of the class. L 59 ■ ■■■■■1 LEO DANIEL KEESLAR, Ch. E. L. D. came to us from Coldwater, Michigan, and judging from his robust physique he must be an ardent believer in cold water treatments. Clever joke. He has pursued vi ' ith vigor his course in Chemical Engineering here and at Ann Arbor, during the summer months. He has also been a steady attendant at the South Bend schools of the dancing art and could be found there regularly on Monday and Wednes- day evenings. " Kees " lived down town but this fact did not keep him from making a lot of friends among the hall residents and we all wish him the best of everything in the years to come. WILLIAM ANDREW KELLEHER, M. E. " Bill " came to us from Columbia " Prep, " Portland, Ore. He brought with him athletic amibtions, an Irish brogue and a suit case con- taining his worldly goods. He made the foot- ball and baseball teams his Freshman year; at the end of his third year he used two trunks and a hand box in removing his wardrobe to his summer home; but he still has the brogue. When the " wild Irishman " is not busy solvirlg Engineering problems he does the movies, and occasionally comes back at 12:20. Bill says that he will favor Portland with his services after taking three months ' post-graduate work at Cedar Point. RAYMOND GROSS KELLY, LL. B. " Kel " doesn ' t need much explanation or apol- ogy. He was first made famous among us by being the youngest graduate of " Bain Tech. " It was here that our hero developed his dor- mant statesmanship and thus he is prepared for the sterner political duties of his maturer years. With fingers in his ears and perplexity in his brain, Raymond came to Notre Dame just three years ago, but wait, — look at him as he poses above before you condemn him, other- wise you would be forced to weep in sheer mortification. Raymond is a man with a legal " bean " and promises to make the Richmond natives sit up and take notice. 60 ■ J HERBERT BARRETT KELLY, E. E. Notre Dame ' s latest, and one of her best con- tributions to big league baseball, is " Moke " Kelly. After serving the varsity as regular pitcher for three seasons " Herb " decided to enter the ranks of the professionals. He spent his vacation with the Pittsburgh Nationals and incidentally made a strong impression on Fred Clarke. Last fall " Moke " came back to finish his Engineering course and to enjoy the friend- ship of Eichenlaub and Carmody. " Nig " will never forget the Christmas party tendered to him by these friends. He joins the Pirates this summer and we shall read the sporting sheet daily so we can tell the home folks about " Herb " Kelly. JOSEPH FRANCIS KENNY, LL. B. When " Speed " Kenny decamps with his parch- ment under his arm, Notre Dame will lose not only an athlete of exceptional ability; but one of the most popular men in the school. Joe won four monograms in basketball and cap- tained his team in his last year. As a catcher he has few rivals in college baseball; and he can ' t help going " up. " He was known to be- come angry only once and that was when Durbin called him " Red. " He greets everyone with a broad smile and his " hows the pepper " will be greatly missed. JOHN JOSEPH KROLL, A. B. His name is a synonym for precision, order and neatness. No one ever sees Jonn other than on time except, perhaps in Greek class, and in this instance he as always ahead of time. John is a great pedestrian. His bi-weekly hike takes him at least as far as the state-line. Spe- cial rec days, he celebrates by walking to Niles, and back to Notre Dame by way of Goshen. He is a philosopher and a happy one, too. He studies much and talks little. L 61 J y ' ALBERT ANTON KUHLE, Ph. B. ' L L " Al " is not neutral. He is a German and a big one too, so be careful of your remarks. It is, however, not through fear of this South Dakota product, that we have nothing but good things to say about him. His record at Notre Dame is an enviable one as he has always been a good student and a good fellow. In appear- ance " AI " has batted 1000% from the opening of the league four years ago. The fact that he has worn a stiff collar and had his shoes shined every day during that time, puts him in a class by himself. " AI " is made of the stuff that counts and he will be heard from later. ERNEST PHILIP LAJOIE, LL. B. The grand old state of Michigan need offer no apology for this native son, and though Sag- inaw may be losing her prestige as a lumber market, she is just entering upon the fame that will be hers, as the home town of one of Notre Dame ' s best barristers. " Larry " is known to everyone as a genial companion, a loyal friend and an ardent supporter of every school activ- ity worth while. Whether holding down sec- ond base for St. Joe, or laboring to uphold N. D. ' s . forensic fame on the Varsity debating teams, " Larry " can be depended upon to give his very best. We expect great things from him in the future, and if his performances at Notre Dame be any criterion, our confidence in his abilty will find abundant justification. JAMES WILLIAM LAWLER, LL. B. When Jimmy started his college career he con- sisted principally of unlimited opportunities, a trifle of amazement at the world in general and an undisciplined shock of golden brown locks. During the past three years we have seen him crystallize, and the process has been an in- teresting one. To Joe Callahan, who put the development in motion, Jimmy will ever be grateful. By his classmates he will be remem- bered as an earnest student and a model of congeniality. He has oratorical ability, legal enthusiasm and is not afraid of work. These things, we know, will help him over the rough spots. 62 J EMMET GEORGE LENIHAN, Ph. B. The career of this future Chautauqua head-liner was opened, as per custom of great men, on the western prairies. Thus, you will observe, he was enabled to emulate the example of Henry Clay and talk to the prairie chickens. As a Freshman he startled us by jumping into the high places of debating fame. There he has remained ever since, the shining light of local oratory. Moreover he has discoursed with authority on the Living Wage before the assembled orators of Indiana, and has won great dramatic renown as a female imperson- ator. Succesful he will be if oncoming events cast any shadows at all before. He will prob- ably return for post-graduate work in Law. JAMES JOSEPH LYNCH, B. S. Laurens, Iowa, is noted chiefly as being the home of James J. Lynch. With a good many other Seniors, Jim appeared at the University in 1911. On account of his inordinate fond- ness for moonlight travels to our nearby city, he has been an enforced inhabitant of Brown- son Hall ever since. Jim was made famous when he left school a few months ago to be- come a Benedict, but returned to us in single blessedness. Because of his aptitude for studying science, Lynch has become a great savant and is invariably seen with a skeleton in his pocket. When he gets his M. D. we would feel safe in being his first patient. EDWARD PAUL McCAMIC, LL. B. " Hill Billy " came to Notre Dame labelled the best High School tackle in West Virginia. He played end on the " follies of 1912 " and then put his cleated shoes on the shelf. " Mac " spe- cialized in M. E. work his Freshman year, passed the exams, met " Red " Callahan and de- cided to jump to the law. He skived but once in four years and was caught when the watch- man refused to arbitrate. He has a strong lik- ing for legal phraseology and " Shorty " Hynes. He is not a society man, although he has play ed bridge with " Speedy " Harvat, and read- ily admits the fact that he is not only a lawyer but a student. His quiet, unpretentious man- ner won him many friends and his success as a lawyer seems assured. L 63 J L H CHARLES HERMAN McCARTHY, LL. B. " Chuck " is a real Mick despite the fact that his middle name is Herman and that he comes from the metropolis of that state where blondes are so much in evidence. He insisted that Minneaplois is the finest city on the map. Lightweight Charley is an authority on several subjects, but principally on automobiles and especially the little Studebaker. " Chuck " has been one of our best representatives among the 400 of South Bend and his many fine qualities have won recognition there as well as at Notre Dame. He favors indoor sports such as study- ing, dancing, fussing, bridge, writing up cases, reading the Minneapolis Journal and arguing with " Red " McConnell. JOHN STANISLAUS MALKOWSKI, E. E. Although Bartholomew said last year that " Chicago is nothing to crow over, " John re- mains a loyal son to the Windy City. He came to Notre Dame with an ambition to become a Mechanical Engineer and we now see the ful- fillment after years of conscientious labor, lightened now and then by a visit to South Bend society, — but we promised to refrain from any mention of the widow. " Mai ' s " winning ways will surely bring him success and it is with reluctancy that we bid farewell to a loyal friend and companion. Although his name is rather long and hard to handle we predict that it well be a well-known one some day. HAROLD DANIEL MADDEN, LL. B. " Fat " received his early education in the schools of Rochester, Minn., put in a year at Prairie du Chien and then came to Notre Dame, in 1911. Harold immediately became a " reg- ular colleger, " learned to " skive, " to " work a drag " and, incidentally to be a social lion. He also gained fame as manager of Corby ath- letics and " got away " with the job in fine style. Last fall the lure of the Lilacs and other things influenced Harold to turn semi-day dodger and since then he has been a busy man. The study of Law, along with his many other duties kept him up pretty late at night and hence the coming of the two-bit taxi. Back to Minnesota and good luck to ye Harold. 64 ■ JOHN JOSEPH MARGRAF, A. B. It was in 1907 that John J. Margraf came to Notre Dame. Since that time John has ad- mirably shown the " Geist " he possesses, — in the manifestation of a sunny character, in achieving splendid results in classes, and in what is of so much importance, a general good fellowship. John is almost a " leaguer " in base- ball, having played on the famous Bankson Lake team for three or four years past. When on the bench between innings, he usually im- proves his time by reading stray bits of Quin- tilian or Vergil. Is this not good warrant of success. JAMES ANTHONY MATTHE X ' S, LL. B. Jimmie ' s deeds of greatness can ' t be summar- ized in these few lines. He put one over on the prefects the first day he was here and he ' s been doing the same thing ever since. He is a lawyer and has a voice like Stack ' s, and a silver-edged football player who has been two different places at the same time. " Matty ' s " home is in Ashland, Wis., and he spent two years in Walsh but, despite this, is 1009? good fellow. Like most of the Senior Lawyers, Jimmie drinks nothing but tea at school, but he likes the colTee that comes in big bags. JOHN JOSEPH McSHANE, Ph. B. " Mac " is an Indianapolis South Side Irishman who can tell you all about the negro riots and frenzied politics of the Indiana metropolis. He is an undisputed authority on railroading and such historical facts as the one he sprung about Queen Elizabeth dying without any sup- porters. Poor Elizabeth. He will argue for hours on any question and can with such a husky voice, drown out all opposition. His abundance of good hearty enthusiasm and energy has made him unusually prominent in many ways. It may be safely said that this good natured and loyal Hoosier has been one of the best students in the class and we will give him a good mark on his chances of mak- ing the world take notice. ■ L •? -,■■ L THOMAS SIMON MEE, LL. B. Take equal portions of " pep " and ability to make friends and have the proportions large; add to this an unusual amount of good looks and season with two years experience and you may approximate " Sim. " There can be only one like him so it would be useless to try to duplicate this Sterling product. He has made good in politics, in insurance, in real estate, and in Law — beat it if you can. rie is a hus- tler from the word go, a business man extra- ordinary and right up in the front among the " boys. " Go to it, " Sim " you will probably be at the top before most of us get started. RUPERT FRANCIS MILLS, LL. B. " Rupe " is a man of many distinctions; he has been a star on the ' Varsity teams in all four major sports, making good in basketball and baseball in his Freshman year and in football and track in later years; he has appeared in Washington Hall on numerous occasions, some- times as a Shakesperian actor, sometimes as an orator, but never as a debater. He has served as president of the Senior Law class; and greatest of all, — he has been Eichenlaub ' s room-mate, " Eich " and " Rupe " have formed an unbeatable combination and the second floor will scarcely seem the same when Notre Dame ' s best pair of athletes and gentlemen cannot be found in the last room in the alley. WILLIAM JOSEPH MOONEY, LL. B. After knowing him for three years we are will- ing to pronounce William J. Mooney, Jr., O. K. During his stay at N. D. Bill has worked hard for the fame of the University, especially for its social prestige in South Bend. In his Junior year Bill was president of the State Oratorical Association, and this year was vice- president. He has also been president of the Indianapolis Club for two years (owing mainly to the fact that the second year he wouldn ' t call a meeting to allow another to be elected.) Although cursed by the fatal gift of beauty, Bill is a good fellow, and when he graduates in Law this June will carry with him the good wishes of a host of friends. 66 9 J DENIS SULLIVAN MORAN, LL. B. " Dinny " came here in 1912 with a B. S. from Springhill, down in Mobile, and has never been troubled by the prefects of either Corby or Sorin. He also brought an oratorical medal up from the South, but his speeches here have been confined to the Indianapolis Club ban- quets. These banquets owed their success not only to his speeches but to his originality and clever art work. When " Dinny " goes he will drag with him an LL. B. to put with his B. S. when he announces to the people of Indian- apolis that he is ready to help them out of their troubles. HAROLD HENRY MUNGER, B. S. A. In the fall of 1911 he left Perrysburg, Ohio, and came to Notre Dame via. the L. S. M. S. His acquaintances spread from George Phil- brook to Glen Herricks and back again to the coeds over in the refectories. And all of the time he has been holding offices in the Archi- tectural Club. Day after day while the folks down around Perrysburg were talking of the time when he would return, " Cap " was wearing out shoes between Sorin Hall and Siberia. He is now an architect and has designed every- thing from a Bishop ' s tomb to a brewery and if Perrysburg doesn ' t grow architecturally from now on, just bet your house and lot the " Cap " is not at home. JAMES PATRICK O ' DONNELL, LL. B. Behold the paradox! He comes from the land of towering mountains, yet his unassuming de- meanor and modest proportions suggest aught but the proverbial big-and-breezy westerner. His nickname is " Duck, " yet he never was known to display acquatic tendencies in any particular. Above all, he is made up of an amazingly harmonious mixture of brains and good fellowship. " The Duck " will make good, has the stuff to do it with and is likeable al- ways. L 67 Jl L JOHN HENRY O ' DONNELL, A. B., LL. B. John H. O ' Donnell, twenty-four, dark, and handsome, entered the University last fall, just in time to be graduated with " Bob " Byrnes and " Nappie " Durrell. While not teaching English to a class of Carroll Hall prodigies, he devoted all his time to the Law. Indeed when any of our promising young barristers were troubled over some notty problem they sought either O ' Donnell or Blackstone. Lest we for- get, John is also an actor. He reached his greatest height in the " Rosary " when he burst forth in agonized appeal, " Who was the man you were with last night? " We admit we don ' t know. With his comprehensive knowledge, his undoubted ability as a student, and his mag- netic personality, we predict success for him wherever John hangs out a shingle. EDWARD FYANS PEIL, Ph. B. Edward toddled into Notre Dame a cunning little minim, and had partaken of hash and buns for half a dozen years before any of the rest of us, (save only and always, Walters) had arrived. Edward left Notre Dame now and then during his long sojourn, but always came back. He has been with us this year, only a matter of a few months. He had designs on a degree last year, but decided that the 1915 crowd was a better bunch to graduate with. Eddie hails from Racine, imitates a number of fearful musical instruments, and dresses like a fashion plate. He is quiet, reserved, courteous and generous in the extreme. " Ed ' s " ability to " stall " opportunely in metaphysics, and to mimic a calliope, have builded him an enduring reputation. We bid Edward " adios " with best wishes for success in life. JOSEPH STANLEY PLISKA, M. E. Joe claims to be a descendant of Count Pulaski of Revolutionary fame and maybe it is from him that our Joseph inherited the tenacious and determined manner that won him quite an arrary of N. D. monograms in addition to much admiration from the fair ones. He was one of the mainstays of the last four famous football teams. Last year he " copped " a baseball monogram and has always been a factor in in- ter-hall track and baseball circles. As a woman-hater Joe has failed miserably as he simply cannot resist the girls. Under the few hairs that remain on Joe ' s cranium there lies a great store of engineering knowledge and other intellectual acquisitions. 68 Jl IGNACIO QUINTANILLA Y. VERTIZ. Min. E. Here ' s a man who always wakes Father Mc- Manus with his thrilling bugle calls on drill days. " Quint " is a mining engineer who promises to go back to Mexico and extract all the gold, silver, and copper from the republic, before capturing that Spanish maiden who is still waiting in Pachuca. In his hours of se- rious work " Quint " sings tuch classical songs as " Si esculpa quererte tanto. " He also gives lectures on " Cyanide " and discusses the prop- erties of minerals in a very scholarly way. He never goes to town and is a very likeable fellow. NORMAN HUGH RANSTEAD. C. E. " Norm " is from the " Windy City " but no one would surmise it. Four years ago he entered Notre Dame, " as quietly as the daybreak comes when the night is gone, " and has been going around in the same manner ever since. He is an unassuming fellow who talks little and thinks much. He never had to " skive " as his name was always seen decorating the " honor list. " He is a member of the Rifle Club and sometimes professes a membership in Prof. Derrick ' s Bugle Association. We expect that if Chicago ever builds a subway, " Norm " will be the " Chief Squinter. " He already re- sembles the Draughtsman ' s finish. FRANCIS BERNARD REMMES, A. B. Frank hails from a city long since made fa- mous by " Mel " Elward. Yes, you are right, it is Lawrence, Mass. Frank ' s strong point is music. He is an accomplished violinist, hav- ing played for four years in the University Orchestra. Occasionally too, on Sundays, at the student mass, he sings a solo and this year has been director of the College Choir. More- over he leaves behind him an enviable record as crack first baseman for the Holy Cross nine. And yet we expect all these accomplishments to be but a shadow of what he will achieve in the years to come. ■ ■■■■■■■I 69 Jl EDWARD FRANCIS RIELY, LL. B. Called by some professors " Really, " and by others, " Mr. R-r-r-riley, " but it makes no never mind to Ed, so he is called for his buns and cof- fee. Most familarily known to his associates by the name of " Judge. " " Well that is rather a close question, you had better see the ' Judge. he will give you the dope. " During his last year with us he was the Holder of the Great Key, Guardian Angel, and general manager of the law library; high plenipotentiary of the legal sanctum sanctorum, and first and last a legal wizard. Edward might have been an ath- lete but he forsakes the honor and glory of that life for the lofty study of the Law. JAMES MORTIMER RIDDLE, Ph. B., Ph. M. This fountain of joy and sunshine has bubbled in our midst for three years and has made him- self prominent in about 57 varieties of Notre Dame life. Our James is from old New Or- leans town and we have a hunch that many of Louisiana ' s prettiest girls have been in mourn- ing since his departure. In his spare time Mr. Riddle assumes the role of Professor and we hear that he is quite a teacher too. If he isn ' t he should be, with all his wisdom and smooth talk. Jim gained fame as a local David Belasco, as a punch maker, and a society dancer. Outside of this he is alright, and a mighty good fellow. ROBERT LEONARD ROACH, Ph. B. Greater pens than ours might avail as little in trying to do justice to " Bob. " He joined us in 1911, a suave, courteous and non-chalant Freshman, intent upon mastering the Ph. B. course. And master it he did. When class activities awed others with their magnitude, " Bob " took the burden on his own capable shoulders and accomplished, without ostenta- tion, just eactly what was to be done. He has been a real leader and, as president of the Junior class, he put over the best " prom " ever credited to a Junior organization. Despite his protestations, he was again burdened with the presidency of the class in our Senior year. And on every hand appears signal attestations of " Bob ' s " ability to do all things well. Easily the most popular man in the class, he goes forth to assured success with the best wishes of all his comrades. 70 J HOWARD JOSEPH ROHAN, LL. B. The antithetical appellation " Beauty " was ap- plied to him on his first appearance here. (Tak- ing the Colonel ' s word for it, when he cited 35 N. E. 135 to prove that " Beauty " was not " descriptive personae. " ) His two distinguish- ing features are baseball and South Bend so- ciety. The former is permanent; his quiet manner and subdued speech while covering the short field on the diamond is as common as meat on Friday. He jumped into the ' Varsity class in his Senior year. In order to study the sociological condition of South Bend, he turned day dodger the last year, and dwells amongst them. We have heard that he received a de- gree in dancing along with sev-er-i-al medals, for his interpretation of the " terpsichorean art. " JAMES EDWARD SANFORD, Ph. B. " Jim " — from Sandusky and Charlevoix — has been a lion in our class. His ability was early recognized, and he became the Freshman presi- dent. By a good comeback he obtained the Sophomore presidency. He gained fame by leading the grand march at the Cotillion and by planning the famous electric 1915 for the Prom. Philosophers with mechanical ingenu- ity are rare — but Jim is rare. He has been left-hand prefect for Flo and kept out of trou- ble by reading David Copperfield. He argues much and he is convincing too. His high ideals and good qualities will push him to the front in short order. GEORGE PETER SCHUSTER, A. B. George Peter became a renowned character at Notre Dame. He was even elected Cheer Leader for the Seniors. For two years he has been a ' Varsity debater, and Schusterian elo- quence along with Browning-esque tendencies won for him class-poet honors. The Brown- son Literary Society helped make him Scho- lastic editor material — equally proficient as editorial writer and dramatic critic for " The Rosary. " George ' s Teutonic characteristics are many. As captain in the military organization, he shows the training of the Fatherland. We are sure George will become famous — even more so than when he tried out for the Sorin Hall track team. L 71 J THOMAS JOSEPH SHAUGHNESSY, B. S. Economy of space prevents us from enumerat- ing the honors that belongs to Tom. He has the distinction of being a member of the English aristocracy, and a nephew of Sir. Shaughnessy, builder of the Canadian Pacific railroad. To him has fallen the singular honor of sleeping in the same bed once occupied by the present King of England, while visiting Canada as the Prince of Wales. Fair Lady has the following description of Tom: " He has a perfect phy- sique, a pink silk complexion, black velvet hair, charming eyes, an enchanting smile and a lovely disposition. " In spite of this, Tom is a good student and has gained considerable prominence in football and track work. WILBUR SIM, B. S. Wilbur was an " honest-to-goodness " teacher even before matriculating at N. D. U. He ac- complished the seemingly impossible by con- tinuing to instruct the " young idea " while him- self absorbing large quantities of miscellan- eous information. His popularity among South Bend youngsters is equalled only by his high standing with the fellows in his course. Wilbur ' s savoire faire was never disputed by local agencies, save on that one occasion when he accused Brother Leep of appropriating his strainer. Wilbur dislikes to talk about him- self, but possesses in abundance, other means of making his merits known. JOSEPH CLOVIS SMITH, Ph. B. It ' s J. Clovis. Our J. Clovis has been all around everything and into most things. As creator of class-room disturbance he has a 1000 ' ; batting average. Little, but mighty. Clove became a ' Varsity debater, captured the Breen medal, and won numerous oratorical contes ts. Not content with being a Scholastic editor, he must room in faculty row one year. He couldn ' t keep out of dramatics, captained Brownson ' s basketball team one year, and was " coxie " of the 1915 crew for two years. Al- though J. Clovis has four German grandpar- ents, nevertheless he likes the Irish and many like him. L 72 J HENRY BARTHOLOMEW SNYDER, LL. B. The significance of the appellation " a gentle- man and a scholar " lost all indeflniteness when we met Henry Bartholomew, formerly of Cum- berland University. He is truly both. We cannot say that we know him as intimately as we would like to, for he is to much of a gentle- man to be obtrusive and too much of a scholar to give much of his time to anything but his books. He has spent the year to excellent ad- vantage in studying Law and being admitted to the Tennessee bar. We wish him every suc- cess and know that he has but to perform the simple task of being himself to attain it. JOSEPH WILLIAM STACK, B. S. in BioL The art editor of the Dome really doesn ' t need any ad here as this whole book is a demonstra- tion of his efficiency, artistry and untiring ef- fort. Joe has certainly been a great man for the job and he deserves unlimited credit. It was not until very recently that he and Father Niewland became chummy over plummules and gemmules. He achieved vast applause in dramatic circles for his interpretation of Or- lando, the lover, but is even more noted for the real goods. During the past year he has ex- ercised guardianship over Old College and Gazella. Joe will be a highly respected citi- zen of Ohio even if he stays in Jefferson. WILLIAM CORNELIUS STACK, LL. B. " Bill " is the boy with the $1,000,000 smile and the ability to back them all to the corner when it comes to wit and repartee. Outside of the fact that he goes to Superior to spend his vaca- tions, we have nothing against this " big huskie. " As a good fellow he can ' t be beat and at any- thing else nobody ever tried to beat him. In athletics he has been a bane to the hopes of all opposing inter-hall football and basketball teams. Lately, however, he jumped to the Fed- erals and as a result, is quite well-known and greatly admired by the sport followers of the West End. The Polish girls, as well as many others, think " Bill " is a wonder, but he has no time for them as they would interfere with his study of the Law. ■■ ■■■■■1 78 ■ ■■■■■I CHARLES PATRICK SOMERS. LL. B. When " Chick " failed to return in September on time for the grand opening, many were the con- jectures as to the reason for his absence, but his return put our mind at ease and we settled baclc in our chairs saying only: " Let the quiz go on; Colonel Somers is here. " Captain Stogsdall and Brother Alphonsus are both firm backers of Charles, for much of his time has been given to the drilling of the raw recruits and presiding over the Brownson Literary So- ciety. As a student he won the recognition of the law faculty, as a man he won the admira- tion of many friends, and their best wishes ac- company him through life. RAYMOND JOHN SULLIVAN, LL. B. McGregor, Iowa, sent her favorite son, " Sully, " to us three years ago. When he entered school he was reckless; he roomed in Walsh Hall and the usual effects followed. He became more reckless and moved to Sorin where he fought in the famous battle of The Melliferous Mar- bles. Among the many things Ray won at Notre Dame are sharp-shooter ' s medals, the po- sition of Captain and Adjutant and admiration; then too, in South Bend he won a few. " Sully " always kept one eye on the Law and the other on the Irish opposition. Now he wears glasses. LEO LOUIS TSCHUDI, LL. B. This lad with the sneezy name stepped into our midst three years ago wearing a grin from ear to ear and carrying a scrap book filled with flowers of many hues. Coming from Dubuque, he was profuse in his praises of the Iowa town, claiming it to be one of the most fertile dis- tricts in the world. But we have learned since that Dubuque has gone dry. Leo has not only bought all the Law books in the course but has studied them, and with much success. All his time, however, was not confined to books as he played on the Walsh Hall baseball team for two years and during this last season helped the Sorin nine. We expect a great deal of this young lawyer and feel confident that he will live up to our predictions. 74 RICHARD VOGT " Silence " saith the sage, " is the surest way to simulate wisdom. " Dick ' s air of exclusiveness, however, is not his sole claim to intellectual greatness. His bulletin marks have always born out the promise of his few-wordedness. We really know very little about Dick, because he has never taken the trouble to tell us any- thing about himself. We are aware neverthe- less, that he is a bona fide South Bender, that he writes wonderful and fearful articles for the Midland Naturalist, and that he is a connois- seur in the matter of onion beds. If his scien- tific mind yields to the charm of any avocation, it must be that of the Orpheum. Dick ' s hours of relaxation are few, however, and the same energy that has made him a " shark " in Science, will make him a leader in the world of affairs. MARTIN EMMET WALTER, Ph. B., M. A. Martin Emmet Walter may well be called a Notre Dame product for he started here about twelve years ago and graduated last June as a Bachelor of Philosophy. His mighty philo- sophical mind craved for more knowledge so he returned to obtain his Master of Arts degree. Next year when he completes his Law course, he will have the distinct honor of receiving three degrees from Notre Dame. He will also receive a certificate from the government for the completion of a rigid military examination before being appointed Colonel of the Notre Dame regiment. He is a close friend of Ser- geant Campbell, (a veteran of five insurrec- tions) and many a stormy session has been held in 219 Sorin. MARCH FORTH WELLS, LL. B. Escaping from the wilds of Dowagiac. " Prep " marched forth to Notre Dame in the fall of 1911. As a ' Varsity pitcher he won his mon- ogram that year. His smooth line, surpassed only by his good looks, won him many femi- nine admirers in Elkhart and Chicago. After spending last year at Indiana University he heard the call of old N. D. and returned to the fold last fall. His increased weight, he thinks, demands parting his hair in the middle and wearing bow ties. After receiving his LL. B. " Prep " will join forces with " Dolly " Gray and show the people of Dowagiac how to conduct a successful law business. IL 76 J ni SANTIAGO ARANIBAR This polished and cultured youth left Peru, S. A., and came to Notre Dame to enter the short course in M . E. work. He graduated from the school of Agriculture at Lima, Peru. Aranibar is a draftsman of unusual skill and as a student has attracted much attention from all his friends. THOMAS HARRY CURRAN The South Bend school teachers call him Thomas, but to N. D. he is known as " Crock " Curran. There was a time when he was not ashamed to admit Belvidere as his home, but with tlie advent of fellow townsmen the more pre- tentious Rockford is claimed. He drinks pretty, green liquids, smokes ugly black stogies and has winning ways. WILLIAM EDWARD FARREN " Bill " is a Cleveland representative and he has done well in that capacity. He has been one of the Beau Brummels of the l niversity. He is fat and sociable and has done his share in keep- ing Notre Dame right up in front in South Bend social circles. May he do as well in the future as he has done at N. D. FRANK JOHN HISS l- ' rank is a quiet and very unobtrusive chap, and, on top of this, lives in South Bend. Con- sequently we know but little of his virtues and vices. His artistic ability was established by bis connection with the " Day Dodgers " dance. Of one thing at least we are certain — he is the kind of man that will create a very favorable impres- sion in his com muni tv. CALVIN HUDSON (lalvin Hudson is the real Southerner retaining his accent after three years at Notre Dame. Be- sides his Engineering studies, he has taken a good deal of the fresh air course and has been one of " Mike ' s " best customers. He is still very young, but bids fair to make himself well known in old Memphis town. PATRICK GALLAGHER " Pat " is renowned for his unfailing good hu- mor. His broad Irish smile beams upon all kinds of annoying situations, and renders his optimism contagious. Patrick has essayed a variety of courses, but finally decided that he was best adapted to the mastery of " short electrical " prob- lems. The fact that he works in the book store has not diminished his popularity in the least. J DENIS TIMOTHY McCARTHY " Mac, " with a regular lri h name, has been with us off and on for several years, and is a Brownsonite of The old type. He lives in In- dianapohs and gained quite a " rep " there as a sprinter. " Mac " has many friends at school, but never had much time for the maids of the nearby village. That doesn ' t mean, however, that he is a woman-hater. CHARLES VINCENT MEANWELL Meanwell came here from the Ypsilanti High chool, but when he got that name off his mind he became normal. He did well in his classes and deleveloped into |uite a " shark " in regard to shunts, phases and ampheretums. He has also made many careful trips to town. He intends to live up to that which follows Vincent, as he has in tlve past. THEODORE JOSEPH SAUER " Ted " is one of the bright lights of the phar- macy course, and bids fair lo keep up the good work when he returns to his native burg of El- wood. Indiana. His spare moments were devoted to the production of iso-valeric acid and oil of peppermint. Ted ' s sunny smile and big heart have made him very popu lar at N. I . JOSEPH MILLER " Joe " is one of the rare individuals who is able to annex a short course certificate as inci- dental to work prescribed in the four-year courses. He will finish a short course in electrical in June, but for him it will only mark the second mile post on the four-year road to a bona fide parch- ment. We have remarked him as a tuiet and un- assuming gentleman, and regard his success as assured. CLAUDE RUSSELL YOCKEY Claude, alias Apius C ' 1audiu . left the timber- decked regions of Harrison ville. Miclvigan, to study M. E. branches at Xotre Dame. He has had some terrible battles with trigonometry, but most of them ended up with a game of " knucks. " one of Yockey ' s favorite pa.stimes. He is a Corby Haller and receives a short course degree in .Me- chanical Engineering. WILLIAM JAMES SHEA " Bill. " who is originally a Chicago product, came to . I . from Loyola I ' niversity, after spending two years in imbibing learning there. He entired Brownson Hall, where the environ- ment best suited his disposition. Two years were ade()uate in effecting a change, however, and since then he has resided in Corby. Despite the fact that " Bill " is an engineer, he had time enough to spare to n ake good in interhall football and baseball. L 77 J Junior Class History he class of ' 16 came back to Notre Dame this year un- der a protest, the same amounting to some $40 of indebtedness inherited from that most ghastly of all financial fricas- sees, the Sophomore Ball of ' 14. As soon as " Lou " Keifer, erstwhile presi- dent of the defunct Juniors, was able to extricate himself from the Hood of duns which the owners of Place Hall and other Shylocks had turned loose upon him, he entered proceedings in bank- ruptcy. Whereupon a class meeting was called and Hugh O ' Donnell was ap- pointed receiver, with Eugene McBride as his vice and Edward Marcus as co- respondent. Someone declared that the class ought to have a custodian of its funds, and this remark precipitated a riot. When the dead and wounded had been removed Fred Pralatowski was found to be on the bottom of the heap; consequently he was unanimously elected treasurer. In order to prevertt further disturbances of the peace, Wilmer Finch, he of mighty muscle and debonair demeanor, was made ser- geant-at-arms. Because the class real- ized that spiritual assistance would be needed before any money could be col- lected from Downey, Frank Swift was made chaplain. Then the gaunt but ubiquitous Figelstahler was made cheer leader, not because anyone wanted to cheer but because " Fig " refused to come across with his dough unless he was given an office. The procedure of former years was followed out and Galvin was named historian; and this despite the fact that he had always for- gotten to write the history until after the Dome came out. After the meeting had adjourned, a pickpocket committee was appointed and the obsequies began. Hungry Ju niors, ragged Juniors, thirsty J all were treated alike; they juniors, ■ II JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS unceremoniously relieved of their allowances and forced to go begging for tobacco. There were many desperate threats and rash resolves, there were sleepless nights and troubled days, but at last the debt was paid. Then the broken-spirited Juniors once more began to breathe freely; their countenances lost that hunted expression always associated with the loan shark ' s victim; and some of them even dared to walk abroad upon the campus after night-prayer. Indeed, there seems good reason to hope that hard labor during the summer may heal many of the wounded pocket- books, and next fall we can expect to see the Seniors buying lemonade and fours and shooting nickels for hamburgers with a ll the profligacy of those lower classmen who have never experienced a financial cataclysm. But there is one individual for whom we have the deepest sympathy, and that is the man who will dare to suggest that the class of 16 give another dance. We amble placidly through the third round, content, like a certain chocolate- hued gentleman of recent memory, to wait for the gong. We have waited. No wrecks in our bunch from overwork. No emaciated victims of brain fag induced by too assiduous application to metaphysics or sociology. In emulation of Edward Marcus, sometime purveyor of dress suits, and all time long distance fusser, we save our brilliancy of intellect solely for social occasions. Our biggest hit is made, perhaps, when our zeal is misdirected — as was Edward ' s when he talked for two hours to an astounded individual whom he supposed to be the father of his best girl. The mistake was discovered before the gentleman in question called a cop, however, and Eddie went down town with McBride. Tim Galvin garners the sachet-scented and beribboned gold pieces every com- mencement, for excellent work done aforetime in debating. Keifer writes perfervid panegyrics for the Scholastic — about one every six months — and gets his picture in the Easter Number of that ultra-yellow journal. Athletically, oratorically, intellectu- ally — all but financially— the class of Sixteen has been without a peer in the history of U. N. D. (Rah, Rah I) We line up for the grand degree chase, to be staged between next September and a subsequent June, with perfect confidence that a few may breast the tape. IL 79 J Junior Law Class History L ' ause for a moment, gentle reader, and cast your optic organs over the most august assemblage of legal luminaries that ever briefed a case or graced the campus — the Junior Law- yers. No longer are we in the embryonic stage; no longer do we labor under the strange hallucinations, but with due dispatch and gentlemanly deportment, we lay aside our frivolous Fresh- man fancies, solve the delicate complications of the law, and, mirabile dictu, force recognition e ' en from the learned Judge himself, (not to mention the Colonel). True, some of our former classmates have fallen by the wayside, but what a galaxy of stars remain. To guide the destinies of this awe- inspiring organization, Frank X ' elch, familiarly known as " Bucky, " en- tertainer par excellence, and ' Varsity quarter-miler, was chosen Grand Exalted Ruler; Charles " Tiny " Bachman, ' Varsity football and track star, is Frank ' s trusty deputy, and his pleasant smile and ponderous bulk will not permit him to rest in the obscurity that generally envelopes Vice- Presidents; Joe Smith, P. G., prefect of Old College and the man that has a corner on the Secretary ' s job at the U., is ever ready to read the minutes, and Harold Burke, who is the very truth and soul of honor, has been entrus ted with our " shekels. " In every phase of University activity we lead while others follow. Our scholastic achievements are innumerable and in athletics we are always conspicuous. Numbered among our greats and near-greats you find " Tiny " Bachman, All-Western guard and track star; Welch, ' Varsity quarter-miler; McDonough, ' Varsity half-miler and President of Bron- son Lit; " Speed " Hardy, the boy wonder from Kansas and the fastest man in track shoes (Chicago papers please copy) ; Luke Kelly, ex-foot- ball star and Holy Cross coach; Cofall, who won fame on the gridiron; Cassidy, the South Bend boy, who plays baseball and basketball during his leisure moments and class hours; " Shorty " DeFries, high jumper extraordinary; Sorin Mailman, " hello " fiend and professional punster. Not in athletics alone do we merit recognition, but in oratory and de- bating we have Walt Clements, Colonel of the Kentucky Club; " Smiler " Walters, Colonel of the N. D. Regiment; Carroll, Duffy, Henry, (he of the delicate conscience) ; Don Mulholland, (the man who knows the Law) ; and " Andy " McDonough, all bright lights in the Bronson " Lit. " Our thirst for knowledge cannot be satisfied, and strange to say, our Dogma and Elocution classes boast of an enrollment that offsets entirely the long list of absentees in the past. Countless others reflect great credit on this body of celebrities, and we needs must mention Colonel Lyons, cue expert and ardent advocate of national prohibition and the Anti-Cigarette League; " Shorty " McLaughlin, pride of the Sorin " alley rats, " and the original six-cylinder Detroiter, underslung and built for 80 ■ J JUNIOR LAW CLASS OFFICERS comfort; McDonald, one of the Beau Brummels of South Bend society, who frequents Chapin street and the Oliver, especially when the " Twa Dansant " Club is in session; Summerer, the drug-dispensing day-dodger; Schlipf, whose youthful exhuberance and childish prattle tend to break the dull routine of constant study and application so dear to every lawyer. All these and more shed luster on the Juniors, and lest we forget — we mention here the name of Britten- -the incomparable, peerless J. George, of Seattle, Wash.; and with such a name to conjure up weird thought, we will let your imagination do the rest. Nor would we approximate even a semblance of justice to the class if we neglected passing mention of that most brilliant of legal luminaries, " Vince " Mooney. Mooney has something more than good looks and a clever line to recommend him. His faculty for laying ' em down along third in emergencies has given the ' Varsity many a timely boost. With such a marvelous aggregation of nonpareil wonders, the Junior Law Class cannot fail to achieve distinction. Heredity and environment have made new men of the " Sixteen " barristers. Sodbusters we may have been; eminent jurists we assuredly are. L 81 J EMULhOLLAND ■tifcfciaaswggaL.:- 1 L JMILLER ' MOONEY n M1M M MUl.

Now, we fel- lows, generally spoken of " en toto " as the Sophomore Class, have never been known to throw any very gorgeous bouquets at ourselves but this account is supposed to be our history, and we are called upon to say what we know. We are therefore pre- pared to put on the garment of truth, and hope that we will not be received as pre- cursory wearers of a new style. In case there should be any noticeable difficulty in " putting over " all that there is to say, a partial list of reliable witnesses to our probity will be found in the back of the latest Notre Dame catalogue. Many other trustworthy references are listed in the roll-call of the priests and brothers, and the payroll of the profs. All these have seen us in action, and they know. We can hold our own in any discussion with the whole gang of loquacious high- brow Seniors while the Freshmen stand around in wild-eyed and open-mounthed astonishment. We are especially delighted to corner some first year man, and tell him all about " Gus " Dorais and the rest of the " last year " heroes. But our Sophomore days are nearly over, and soon we will be banished to the Junior Class. Now that we have the chance, we are going to tell about that mighty leap that landed us on the top of the heap of popularity. The Sophs got their heads together early in the year and used their wisdom to won- derful advantage in the election of officers. The chair of the presidency was conceded to Leo O ' Donnell, who, as subsequent events proved, was always right on the job. In consequence, the vice-presidency became a mere position of honor for " Jerry " Miller. The precarious position of treasurer was, after much consideration, awarded to Daniel Hilgartner, while Robert Burns was given the honor of keeping an account of the doings of the class — and no trifling responsibility, either. To Frank O ' Donnell was handed the Big Stick of the sergeant-at-arms. He also had his share of responsibility. 92 Jl SOPHOMORE CLASS OI-hlCERS The very pinnacle of our ambition was readied in the unparalleled success of the Sophomore Cotillion. Precedent was strongly against us in this bold undertaking, but despite the stumbling-blocks very carelessly left in our path by a certain other Sophomore Class, we succeeded in effecting a most harmonious combination of dance-hall, orchestra, refresh- ments, and other necessities, the sum-total of them all amounting to one of Notre Dame ' s most successful society affairs for many years. The Cotillion has been our crowning achievement this year, but our " pep " has by no means disappeared. We have gotten away to a good start, and in the present lap have shown a burst of speed that will be hard to duplicate. Throughout we have set a record- breaking pace, and intend to hold it. Keep your eye on ' 17, and watch our smokel Freshman Class History ■ CONi ENTION miES.

Being pre- eminently paramount (which is also a firm of famous fea- ture fllmers) to all other Freshmen, we precociously accumulated coveys of col- lege customs. Padded shoulders, celluloid collars, ready knotted neckties and high toed shoes were speedily discarded in favor of flannel shirts, khaki inexpressibles and tieless collars. We ceased to get our hair cut round — or any other way. Verily, we became real collegians. We performed the time honored neophyte stunt of trying to telescope ourselves into a trunk during vespers, before removing our doughnut- sized alarm clock from our pockets. Emu- lating the more blase Sophs, we took the offending time-piece down town, and loan- ed it to the Irish gentleman, whose busi- ness establishment is graced with a large orange tinted shamrock. Mae and Elda and Gertie and all the other queens suc- cumbed to us at sight. Tom Kelly talked Elda into giving Tiim Saturday evenings for a whole year, which is some privilege. Speaking of Gertie, — we weren ' t but in- tend to, — John Boyle tried to boob some of us at first, but when he discovered what we had discovered, his silence became dis- tinctly audible. We learned therefrom that before a fellow begins perfidiously misleading Freshies, he should at least burn his album. We can ' t (or won ' t) claim Allerton Dee or Bill Ferguson, but we have some pretty good checker play- ers. George Murphy was nearly oui star all-around athlete. He would easily have won Freshman numerals in every branch of athletics, except for the very trifling cir- cumstance that he was unable to do so. Logan stars as track man. Lindeman, who was astonished that there was a city the size of South Bend in the U. S., yea, even in Indiana, Demosthenizes in Brownson Lit. Clark is too cute for anything, 94 iwnson I Bemie I .J ■ seal I was Miller presumes to Soph standing, and the rest of us grow indignant over Hobo editorials in the Scholastic. Our achievements — too many for enumeration, too glorious for words. Think of the general skive we instigated when the ' Varsity left for Yale! Think of us all making the Military and Delinquent list! Has ever other Freshman Class done so well? As to class organization. Some of the Seniors made us do it in January. " Little Dutch " Bergman, sprinter extraordinary, was victimized president. " Louie " Fitch drew a suspended sentence — and was made vice-ditto. Being impecunious anyhow, we let Murphy treasure our hypothetical funds. Charlie Meyers, near relative of the Big Chief, was made secretary. Our Freshman football team defeated Culver. So did our track team. We feel that we have arrived. Entering upon the second lap, we gaze with becoming scorn on Freshmen prospective, and with eager eyes at Junior station. Freshmen Law Class History ecessity demands this tentative press-agenting, for we are prominent entities in college activities, and have been men of note since the day of our arrival. Among the students we have acquired an awe-inspiring reputation for in- tellectual profundity, while to the prefects, the term " Freshman lawyer " eptiomizes all that is commendable in application, diligence and studious de- corum. Even the Prefect of Discipline is so familiar with us that he can call each of us by our first name, and has implicit confidence in our moral stamina and sterling veracity (never, indeed, have we been caught with the goods, but what we have been too scared to lie).. When we first impaired the classic beauty of local land- scapes, and limned flawless our profiles against the rusty yellow of the Main Building, it was rumored about that we were superior beings, thus rudely projected into cosmic actuality only that we might serve as models and examples for our benighted fellow students. 95 ictuality I s. The I 1 m I ath I Sor Dean of the Legal Department — no names mentionable, says the censor — took us into his capacious bosom, and bodily averred that we were the most brilliant prospective barristers that had ever staged a mimic dog fight for his edification. His ability to inclucate legal lore, he opined, in happy conjunction with our capacity for assimilating same, must con- stitute a wonderful combination. And so it hath transpired. (Stage business of sarcastic chuckles and ghoulish groans.) Judge Farabaugh, who was formerly wont to refer to us as verdant, overgrown, unsophisticated and uncouth sod-busters, now concedes that we exhibit rare traces of rationality. There are different reasons why we are so well established in the minds and hearts of all students and professors here. When the Freshmen Four- Year men held their class election, we were present, and joyously (not to say hilariously) selected their officers for them. Later, and as an afterthought, we organized ourselves, electing Daniel Quinlan president, victimizing James McMahon as vice-president, wishing the position of secretary on J. V. Devoy, entrusting John Cassidy with our theoretical funds, and finally selecting James O ' Donnell as guardian of our peace and dignity. Still another episode of momentuous moment — sure, we believe in alliteration! — occurred during the absence of Professor Tiernan from class on a certain memorable occasion. A certain Senior took it upon himself to instruct the youthful idea. He plied us with supercilious interrogatories. He beamed benign disdain. Then it suddenly dawned upon him that we knew at least that one microscopic phase of the law. Discovery unparalleled! He retired in confusion. So indeed have we, on occasions, innumerable. As to our celebrities: there is " Red " Byrne, famous for radical views and daring skives, Flynn the socialist, Gotwold the student, Minavio — " your next customer " Minavio — the musician and faux pas artist, and " Crimson " McManus of the adjustable moral principles. We also boast a number of athletes, claiming Franz, Dorais, Rydrewski, Sears, Edgren, Nollenman, Cook, Mclnerny and Cassidy. Taking us all in all — and who ' d take us otherwise? — we have scholar athletes and athletic scholars. We buy our own tobacco, get our own cases, and make our own dates Some infant industry! We boast both quantity and quality. We are destined for great things. We feel that we shall ultimately " arrive. " 96 and ■ tes. ■ -eat I SORIN HALL REV. WALTER LAVIN, C. S.

There was Earl OW Dickens, man of resources, personality and M capability, on the bridge; " Mr. " Flynn, our W sexagenarian, whose hoary locks added dig- nity to the officer ' s mess, and whose knowl- edge of the constitution and by-laws kept us L ever within the prescribed bounds of pro- " cedure, bearing with becoming and frock- coated decorum the burden of the mateship; Joe Smith, post-grad and handsome, watch- dog of the passports; Jerry McCarthy, pre- cise, pleasant, punctual Jerry, keeper of the log; Bob Roach, who occupies so much space elsewhere in this record that we refuse to eulogize him here, except to say that he is a mighty good treasurer, holding the strings to the purse; Johnny Mangan, sturdy, stalwart and smiling, ship ' s doctor and bouncer; Al Kuhle and Mac McNichols, gentle-yet-firm to a queen ' s taste, inspectors of would- be ' s. Guided by this unbeatable official roster the welfare of the good ship was a thing of record before the journey was under way. In the fo ' castle we find such notables as the Carmody twins; Young DutcH Bergman; Vince Mooney and Bill Case; Emmet Walter, our efficient little drill- master; James Himself Riddle; Harold Madden, minstrel moke; Rubber City Mc- Court; Father Mac; Father Foik, Chaplain; and some thirty or forty others who were occasionally " among those present. " The activities of the Council were confined to smokers and entertainments, staged by Brother Madden and executed delightfully. During the year we listened to the inspiring words of Father " Tom, " Brother Fox, of Indianapolis, Brother McGann of South Bend, and Brother Daly, of New York. Our gatherings were notable in this, that good-fellowship abounded; Knighthood was the more deeply instilled into our hearts; Catholicity, Notre Dame and fraternity more firmly woven into our make-ups by all of them. On April eighteenth, thirty-five new Knights were born into the order, and they rode the bewhiskered animal in a manner eminently satisfactory to all. " Eich, " of EARL S. DICKENS Grand Knight 103 LJ gridiron fame, and " Rupe, " his versatile running mate, took part vociferously and charitably; Jimmy McMahon showed a few of us up, and the others, including Cuz Cusick, Shorty McLaughlin and Buck O ' Donnell, did themselves nobly. The Council is preparing for the coming state convention with pleasant anticipa- tions, and looks forward to entertaining its guests in a way that will cause them to speak only praise for " the only college council. " Withal, we have had a successful year. Our gatherings have been pleasant, our coffers are full, and our enrollment is large. A successful council requires no more. K. OF C.

" Not wishing to have their title confused with the cleaning and dyeing business, they later decided to rename the society " The Pam Club, " in honor of Max Pam, founder of the Journalism School. Two graduation days stripped the Club of all upper class- men and left the regular members to carry on the work. This year, Words- worth ' s line, " We are seven, " has been chosen as the motto of the society, that being the exact number of Junior Journalists that has survived the exodus. These battle-scarred veterans, having passed successfully through every struggle of the early days of the Jour- nalism School, from getting out a " dummy " to asking Father Moloney for a typewriter, feel competent to face any terror of their profession that the coming years may have in store for them.

It ' s true, of course, that we do not make much money, but look at the experience we get. We ' ve been getting experience ever since the Pam Club had heart fail- ure upon the discovery that the school got half their money. With the advent of the 50-50 arrangement we assumed control of the correspond- ence and the bi-sected pay checks. We have had the added distinction of having made more progress toward our goal in one year than Jess Willard did. How did we do it? Simply by losing Durbin, Sholem and O ' Connell. Isn ' t that progress? The " ayes " have it. We recite with the Pams, and annoy them on occasions by interrupt- ing their slumbers. Among our notables are Daly and Bergman, ' Varsity athletes, " Duke " Reilly, author, actor and follower of Professor Cooney ' s precept about dressing well, Bemer of the bass voice and tenor build, Parker who recites and plays tennis, Hilgartner, the nonchalant Chicagoan, Sackley, the movie star, Mc- Osker, the two-miler, Fogarty (who is called down daily for reading dailies in class), La Fortune, Duffy, Carroll, and finally Burke, who has been known to attend class twice in the same week.

But B an unusually large number of candidates evinced an interest in dra- matics and a capable coach was found in the person of John Drury, pro- fessor of elocution. As a result, the achievements of the Dramatic Club have main- tained a parity with those of last year, which is high praise indeed. " The Rosary " was presented on Faculty Day, and although three-fourths of the cast trod the " boards " for the first time, the production was a thorough success. For the annual Senior play the " Girl of the Golden West " was selected, and very capably produced. Brother Cyprian surpassed all former efforts in stage setting, and every detail of the play was " put over " with a professional swing. It was feared at the beginning of the year that a successor to Cecil Birder, " Notre Dame ' s All-Time Leading Lady, " could not be found, but Emmett Lenihan has proven a very versatile understudy. The success of the " Girl of the Golden West " depended almost entirely upon the manner in which the title role was presented, and the hit scored by this production speaks volumes for Lenihan ' s ability. Wilmer Finch also proved to be an excep- tionally clever " actress. " As impersonators of " merely masculine " characters John U. Riley and Rupert F. Mills carried off premier honors. A number of the best men in the club will return next year; hence the outlook for the season ' s theatricals is exceedingly bright. Brownson Literary and Debating Society he Brownson Literary and Debating Society of 1914-15 maintained the usual high grade of literary work as in former years since its organiza- tion, from which time it has ranked as the foremost literary association of the University. The membership of the society consisted of students residing throughout the University, among whom were many able and forceful speakers. The annual debates with Holy Cross were of high standard, excelling those of the past years, and the interest manifested was more intense than usual. This proficiency was in a large measure due to the efforts of Father Walsh, who acted as adviser and critic during the year. The subject chosen for debate this year was: " Resolved, That employers and employees should be compelled to settle disputes affecting public welfare, before legally constituted boards of arbitration. " The members of the affirmative team were: Edward J. Dundon, Francis J. Vurpillat and John P. Doyle. The negative was upheld by William Curly, George Windoffer and Joseph Sheehan. The social side of the organization surpassed that of previous years, several smokers being enjoyed, at which events interesting programs were rendered. Many friends and members of the faculty, including Brother Alphonsus, the founder of the society, were present on these occasions. The officers for the first term were: Don S. Mulholland, president; Gerald S. Clements, vice-president, and Leonard Carroll, secretary. Those chosen for the second term were: Andrew L. McDonough, president; Charles P. Somers, vice-president, and Learnard Carroll, secretary.

To the reader who will look in vain for the likenesses of " Deac " Jones, " Rupe " Mills, " Joe " Pliska, " Moke " and Luke Kelly, Knute Rockne and many others, we must regretfully explain that engagements and bulletins conflicted disastrously. To the wearer of the Gold and Blue insignia, the student pays the remarkable tribute of sincere admiration. Other decorations may come and go, and are as speedily forgotten, but the monogram insures its wearers a perennial fame at old U. N. D. All honor to the men who have made local athletic history the glorious chronicle that it is! " Yea, down in history they ' ve gone And nicked the hall of fame; Though they drop away in the world ' s decay And are resolved back into clay, They ' ll live at Notre Dame. " IL 118 I State Clubs " ecause of the cosmopolitan character of the Notre Dame student body, many state, and at least two city, clubs have sprung into existence. Indianapolis contributes so many students annually that they find it a mutual advantage to organize for social purposes. Rochester, New York, sends a dozen or more each year to old N. D. Kentucky, Wisconsin, New York, Indiana, Illinois and several other states number their local representatives by the score. The Ohio Club, pic- tured herewith, has contributed largely to student activities. Besides several such stellar athletes as Eichenlaub and Cofall, the Buckeye State has furnished the Art Editor and record-smashing Business Manager of the tenth annual Dome. Banquets and smokers are to date the chief diversions of the state clubs as such, but with steadily increasing size and solidarity, several are prepared to extend their energies beyond Haney ' s and the Oliver, and promote club dances on a scale that would make them formidable rivals of the most pretentious class functions. It has been aptly said that if every state in the Union, represented by six or more individuals, were the " raison d ' etre " of an organization, Notre Dame could boast more than thirty state clubs. The Rifle Team he Notre Dame Rifle Team, chief subsidiary of the Notre Dame Riflle Club, is, during the fall and winter months, one of the most active or- ganizations at Notre Dame. Th is year the club and its sharpshooters opened new quarters in the old re-modeled Brownson gymnasium. Last year witnessed some excellent work by the rifle team, which comprised among its members such crack shots as Cadet Captain Derrick, Lieutenant Brower, and Adjutant Sullivan. This year Derrick and Brower were sadly missed, and the record of wins in shoots with other universities and colleges throughout the country is not nearly so imposing. Nevertheless the men comprising the team have done very well indeed. The team members are: Bott, Captain Ranstead Sullivan Vogel Wei Miller ss Quinlan Kleinhenz i The Religious Aspect at Notre Dame " ver watchful upon the summit of the golden Dome, guarding her children, stands Our Lady of Notre Dame. A majestic figure of grace and beauty by day, she is, encircled by many lights, a beacon in the sky by night. The University has always endeavored to inspire her students with a tender regard, yea, a real love for the Blessed Mother, and there is no one of us who cannot but feel her influence every day that we are at Notre Dame. Let us continue to remember her all the days of our lives! The College Chapel has been the scene of all the splendid services in the Liturgy of the Catholic Church. Catholic and non-Catholic alike have attended the annual Retreat, the splendid Holy Week services, and have assisted in the impressive Corpus Christi processions. They have heard with interest the Lenten sermons and have taken part in the May Devotions, dedicated to Our Lady. In the spring, at early dawn, the clergy, with solemn ritual, bless the fields and pray for successful crops. The excellent sermons preached by the learned priests on subjects pertinent to the college man, have been most beneficial, and the great number of daily communicants, estimated at five or six hundred during the Lenten season, has been a source of gratification and pride to those who have witnessed this pious devotion. if. L WHEKE LA SALLE PADDLED 4 ■i —— ■ J CAPTAIN STOGSDALL IL Fr. McNAMARA. Chaplain The Military Department ilitary at Notre Dame has long since ceased to be an experiment, and so at the be- ginning of the school year the organization of a regi- ment took place as quietly and efficiently as does the be- ginning of a class. A full quota of officers was at once appointed and a regiment of two battalions comprised of three com- panies each, began drill. The companies this year are larger than in the past and as a whole have reached a degree of efficiency that is scarcely ever found outside of a military school. Besides the regiment there are three companies made up of the small- er boys in Carroll and St. Edwards Halls. These companies lack but one thing to make them as good as the regiment and that is the size of adult soldiers. Indeed it is wonderful to see the degree of efficiency that these youngsters have attained. It is impossible to even enumerate the activities of the organization. Dress parades, re- views, calisthenics and field exercises fur- nished an unending source nf instruction and entertainment to cadets and spectators alike. The two big events of the year were: the annual inspection by a member of the General Staff, May 11, and the un- veiling of the Maine Monument and recep- tion of Secretary of the Navy Daniels on Decoration Day. That the regiment brought credit and honor to the Uni- virsity on these occasions is the ver- dict of all who have witnessed the various ceremonies during the year. Captain Stogsdall, who has been the instructor since military drill was introduced in the University, is sure- ly deserving of credit for the excel- lent result he has attained and for the careful planning which never al- lowed interest to lag. Sergeant Campbell also deserves praise for his loyal assistance and support. Nor must the band be forgotten for without good music satisfactory ceremonial drill is almost an impos- sibility. Professor Derrick has pro- duced an organization that has all the " aplomb " of professional musi- cians and the music rendered has invariably kept the Regiment drilling at its best. ■THE COLORS " SERGEANT CAMPBELL 126 1 THE REGIMENT IN THE GYMNASIUM L THE CADET BAND 129 Jl L _-i - ' l " T. " COLUMN OF SQUADS " - AT M i ' iV E ■ The Notre Dame Rifle Club ast year the first Rifle Club the University has known was organized with one of the largest memberships of any club in the country. The shooting was such as to raise the club from Class C in the intercollegiate league to Class B. With this auspicious beginning, enthusiasm ran high in the early part of the school year, when the question of reorganizing came up. Officers were elected and three hundred and fifty members enrolled, thus making it the largest college rifle club in the country. The old rifle range in the gymnasium being too small and inconvenient, was abandoned, and the club members were given an entire building to themselves. Through the generous co-operation of the faculty, one of the best indoor ranges in the country was constructed. Sergeant Campbell at once set to work to make it one of the most attractive spots on the grounds, contributing all kinds of valuable trophies and decorations. The room has the ap- pearance of a luxurious club and a museum combined, and always calls forth unstinted praise from all visitors. Interest never lagged through- out the year and every day a crowd of embryo marksmen could be seen pumping lead into the targets. Most of the good shots of last year did not return, so it was difficult to choose a team. In spite of this handicap, however, the team did well, making a creditable showing in the Indiana state contest against Culver, and in the contests with colleges arranged by the National Board for the promotion of Rifle Practice. The Indiana National Guard has always been so courteous as to extend the use of their outdoor range to the Notre Dame Club, but this year they were compelled to abandon their old range, so the club has been unable to have any outdoor practice. The National Guard has set 135 to work constructing a new range, which will be more modem and also more accessible, and so next year the club will have as good out-door facilities as they have indoors, and more than that could not be desired. The purpose of the club is not to develop a few crack shots but rather to bring every member to a fair degree of efficiency in the use of the rifle. To see how nearly this ideal was realized one need only glance over the targets that have been shot this year. Special credit is due C aptain Stogsdall and Sergeant Campbell for their untiring efforts in instructing the men. Undoubtedly the fine show- ing made by the men is due in a great measure to the efforts of these two instructors. The club during the year 1915 has certainly set a record that future years will have difficulty in surpassing. K 4I4 I! ■ CAPTAIN KEITH JONES 137 J The Season I the te I ning c COACH HARPER Freshman team of last year, ably backed by Mills, Baujan, Holmes, Stephan, Sharp, Ward, Thorpe, Grady, Miller, J. O ' Connell, King, H. O ' Donnell, Voelkers, Shaughnessey, Rauch, Bush, Odam, Daly, Beh, Stack and Kowalski were battling the regulars for berths. All the members of the squad went through the pre- liminary work with an earnestness that argued stronger than words for the success of the team. Before long, however, injuries became common and several of the men, in- cluding Jones and Finegan, were on the hos- pital list before the first game. This loss was not greatly felt, however, as a fast well balanced team was sent against Alma in the initial struggle. Notre Dame lined up with Eich at full, Pliska and Larkin at the halves, Cofall at quarter. Mills and Elward, ends, Lathrop and Ward at tackles, Keefe and Bach- man, guards and Fitzgerald at center. The Michigan invaders were easily de- feated by a 56-0 score. Only a few plays were used, but they were more than enough to completely overwhelm Alma. On the whole, the team performed wel! but at times the run- ning of interference and blocking was ragged. review of the 1914 Football Sea- son seems a useless recollection of deeds that have been placed in their proper resting place by Time. The mention of football stirs up cold ashes, mere shad- ows of the flaming coals of reality that once were, and gives no response to memory ' s prod. The season of 1914 is gone; and with it has fled all desire to retell the glory of victory, the pain of defeat, and the honest pride in playing fairly and well. All these subjects are only mocked by words and belittled by analysis; they should be lived and not described. Yet Dome history would not be complete without a brief summary of the football year; and, though the writing of it is an honorable task it is attempted with many misgivings. Coach Harper had his men report the ninth of September, a week before school con- vened, in order to make sufficient preparation for the early games of the season. Twelve monogram men were on hand; Captain Jones, Lathrop, Fitzgerald, Elward, and Keefe, line- men, and Eichenlaub, Pliska, Berger, Kelle- her, Finegan, Duggan and Larkin, backfleld men, were fighting to hold their old positions, while Bachman and Cofall, the stars of the ASST. COACH ROCKNE 138 ■ J Cofall, playing quarter for the Rrst time in a regular game, had only a limited number of plays to call but he used them to good advantage and kept the team going at full speed. The next few days was spent in strengthening the weakness brought to light in the first game. Fair progress was made, and machine like team work seemed assured when Eich pulled a tendon in his leg and was practically out of the game until the Carlisle fray. When the Gold and Blue lined up against Rose Poly, Jones and Eich were on the bench; Sharp and Duggan filled their places. The game was a 103-0 joke. The Downstaters did not offer enough opposition to judge whether or not Harper ' s men had improved materially. Every man on the squad ran about three miles; that much was admitted. Next came Yale and shattered hopes. With Jones , Lathrop, Bachman and Eich handicapped by injuries the Gold and Blue warriors headed for New Haven with the well wishes and money of the students. What happened there has been told and retold. Yale won 28-0. Superior team work, combined with perfect generalship won for Eli; ragged team work and crippled players lost for Notre Dame. Every man on the team fought till the final whistle but, on two occasions with the ball on Yale ' s 5 yard line, lacked the punch to carry the pigskin over for touchdowns before time was called. Harper ' s men made more yardage than the Blue but failed to gain at the most opportune times. The score does not show the com- parative strength of the two teams. This is an explanation, not an alibi. The following Saturday Sioux Falls, S. D., was the scene of Notre Dame ' s game with South Dakota. The Indianans started this struggle with Bergman at quarter, Finegan at full and Cofall and Larkin at the halves. During the first half the Hoosier invaders felt out the weak spots in the Coyote defense and finding them, scored 33 points to their opponents none in the last half. Then came Haskell Indians who went down to a 20-7 defeat in a slow game featured by the brilliant open field running of Bergman. The little speed marvel scored three touch- downs after runs from the middle of the field. In this game Notre Dame was clearly off color. When the Gold and Blue team met the Army the next Saturday, Eichenlaub and Finegan were among the cripples who were unable to play. The Westerners put up a scrappy game but allowed the Soldiers to score two touchdowns, as the results of a blocked kick and a fumble. In the third quarter Notre Dame marched the entire length of the field for her only score. The Army won 20-7. Stung by this second defeat at the hands of Eastern teams, the Catholics swooped down on the Carlisle Indians in Chicago the follow- ing Saturday and gave the Redmen the worst drubbing they have had in years. Eichenlaub, Bergman, Kelleher, and Cofall ran over, around, among, under and through the Indians, while the line opened big holes in the Redskins forewall. When the slaughter ended the score was 48-6. Thanksgiving Day Notre Dame invaded the East for the third time and defeated Syracuse 20-0. Eichenlaub followed by Kelleher, Cofall and Bergman led a smashing attack that the Syracuse players could not meet. The line shoved their heavier opponents all over the field and had little trouble in checking the rushes of the Eastern backs. Here ended the football season of 1914. ■ •PLISKA IN ACTION " Reprinted by counesy of Y»le Coutmh 139 ■ ■ ■■■■hJ Looking back with an unprejudiced eye, we are warranted in saying, that considering the injuries to some of our best players, the distance traveled by the team, and measuring success by victories, that the year was a fairly satisfactory one. But real succ ess in college athletics is judged not only by the number of games won but also by the conduct of the players. Every man of the Notre Dame team willingly gave the best in him, and never quit fighting in the face of defeat; harmony and true friendship welded together a machine of loyal students, who played fairly and well, lost gamely and wore the honors of victors with modesty. Surely, wheii rightly considered, the season of 1914 was a real success. -ing g m fl FRESHMAN SQUAD 1,« } - % T -.V ■ L VARSITY SQUAD 140 J 1914 Football Schedule Oct. 3.

Do you recall your sensations of awe and wonderment at actually beholding a great college team in the making? Of course you do! Whoever forgets those first glorious impressions of Freshman days! It seems only yesterday that you saw a handsome, husky youngster pointed out as Eichenlaub, candidate for fullback honors. You regarded him with awe, listened to a Sophomore glibly recounting the big youth ' s high school record, and hoped that he would make good. Time has shattered many another fondly cherished illusion. But it has only amplified your confi- dence and pride in " Eich. " And then that first game? You ' ve forgotten what team was the victim, but you can remember shrieking your exultation as Eichenlaub smashed through their desperate line, for the long and repeated gains that piled the score into the fifties. No gridiron star has ever boasted a career more replete with sensational achievements, than was Eichenlaub ' s. Mighty Jack Marks, moulder of champions, said that " Eich " was the greatest fullback he had ever seen. And because we had not then barkened to the empty lure of Conference prestige, Eichenlaub played throughout the season. He was All-Indiana fullback that year, and All-Western on all selections. And so the next year, and the next. From the Hudson to the Rio Grande, thou- sands thrilled with admiration for the hard plunging fullback. His fame spread from coast to coast. Yet it never " swelled " his head. And that last year when " Eich ' s " leg went bad and the bonesetter ' s art had failed! How we needed him in the Yale and Army games! But the Syracuse contest compensated for all else. Hundreds clustered in front of " Jimmy and Goats " to cheer their ecstacy as the bulletins recorded victory over the Conquerors of Mighty Michi- gan. We were oblivious to the jostling crowds and clanging street cars. For a thousand miles away, old " Iron Eich " was fighting his last battle for the Gold and Blue. And a splendid battle it was! " Eichenlaub through the line for ten or twenty or thirty yards. " It seemed like old times. It seemed like that first game. And so it came to pass that " Eich ' s " last appearance on the gridiron was as glorious as his first. And in a fashion becoming of a veteran, his last fight was crowned with success, and he passes into history — A VICTOR. L 143 ■ J The Team o be captain of a team that successfully completed the hard- est schedule that Notre Dame has ever had is an honor that fell to Jones, and he admirably discharged the duties that came to him as chief of the Gold and Blue warriors. Al- though " Deak " was slowed up and greatly handicapped by injuries received early in the season, he played with the same cleverness and alertness that characterized his work in other years. Strong, and fearless, he was a power on offense and defense, a hard tackier in the open and always a careful, capable leader. In the Carlisle and Yale games he handled forward passes cleverly, getting away with eight successfully. This is " Deak ' s " last year and everyone wishes that his work on the field of life will surpass even his achievements on the football field. When election was held this year Fitzgerald was the man chosen to lead the 1915 team; we feel sure that he is the right man for the place as he is popular with all the players. This year " Piedmont " was switched from guard to center, but the change seemed to be for the better as the big Oregonian performed wonderfully in the new position. He passed accurately and fast; blocked well, charged low and hard; and always followed the ball. In the South Dakota game his good interference made pos- sible two touchdowns. We hope that under his leadership Notre Dame will have the best team in the country next year. Bachman played fullback for the Freshman last year but when Fitzgerald was placed at center " Bach " was stationed at guard on the ' Varsity and filled that position so well that he was picked on the All-State team and the second All-Western team. A giant in size. " Yarley " was irresistible on offense; he opened holes easily and often got back far enough to muss up the secondary defense. " Bach " often backed up the line. At this work he was at his best; fast, strong, a sure tackier and a good analyst of plays he was all over the field breaking interference, downing runners, and smashing plays before they ever started. We expect to see the big " Dutchman " on the All- American team before he leaves school. lU THE HASKELL GAME 145 Working along side of Bachman was Lathrop the long, wiry tackle, who slipped, eel-like, through a loose offense and battered through close formations; " Lath " played a wonderful game despite the fact that he was handicapped by injuries the entire season. Although " Slim " never seemed to exert himself he was always in the right spot at the right time; on defense he varied his tactics and worried the opposing end contin- ually; on offense " Doc " charged with a drive that enabled him to handle his man with ease. " Lath " will return next year. Playing next to Lathrop was Elward, the smallest man on the team. " Mai " had plenty of experience and under the care- ful coaching of Rockne, developed into a wing man who would have been a welcome addition to any team in the country. The midget got down under punts speedily, tackled fiercely and held his feet when opposing backs sought to get him out of the way. In every game he was pitted against men weighing nearly two hundred pounds, but the little Irishman never failed to move them far enough to allow his backs to make yardage. Mai will finish this year and his position will be hard to fill. One of the best halfbacks that ever fought in the ranks of the Gold and Blue, hard plunging, hard fighting " Sam " Finegan has earned an enviable posi- tion among notable performers on the gridiron. " Sam " played inter- hall for Corby the first year, and thence graduated to the ' Varsity, where he has captured monograms for three successive years. Grit, headwork and indomitable fighting spirit have been this brilliant half- back ' s stock-in-trade. He hit the line like Eichenlaub, evaded tackler ' s like " Dory " of other days, and kept the fighting spirit of the team in the highest notch. Injuries kept him out of two important games this year and his loss was sadly felt. His presence has always insured a score that was " right. " Sam will get his sheepskin this year. As an ideal scholar and athlete, he has few equals. Notre Dame wishes him well. Keefe played at guard again this year and his work was always done well. Emmett is the type of player who makes team play possible; silent, uncomplaining, willing to work, consistent and dependable, he did much toward perfecting the work of the line. On offense Keefe was supreme; he played close to the ground and charged low and hard, tearing enormous breaches in opposing lines. Emmett will return next year and his services will be more valuable than ever. Notre Dame has had many good halfbacks but none better than Cofall. Stan played halfback on the Freshman team, however, when he reported to the ' Varsity he was placed L ■ J f (at quarterback, where he played the first three games. Coach Harper then switched him to his old position and installed Bergman at quarter. Cofall is a born football player. He can hit the line, run in a broken field, for- ward pass accurately, kick well, tackle viciously and fight gamely. Stan has two more years to play and in that time should develop into one of the best backfield men in the country. Berger is another of the good backs developed at Notre Dame. Heinie played little this year but when he was in the line-up he carried the ball for good gains and always worked for the best interests of the team. In the last quarter of the Carlisle game Berger brought the spectators to their feet when he carried the ball from the middle of the field through the entire Indian team and placed it within striking distance of the goal. Next year when Notre Dame needs a fast back to circle the ends, Heinie will be missed for he finishes in June. Larkin started the season at halfback, and was used in this position in both the Yale and South Dakota games. Later in the season he was shifted to quarter and ran the team in easy fashion when he was sent in to relieve Berg- . man. In the Carlisle game " Bunny " mixed his plays to ' • - ajfe good advantage and drove the team at top speed, as well as carrying the ball skilfully and forward passing with accuracy. " Bunny " has another year to play and will probably return Pliska played four years and in that time rendered invaluable service to the Gold and Blue. Fast, a clever dodger, and quick thinker, he was a tower of strength on offense and never failed to gain when yardage was needed. Joe played the last part of both the South Dakota and Carlisle games and got away for several long runs in each contest. He was a past master at receiving and returning punts, and a sure catcher of passes. Joe will be missed next year. For two years it was thought that Duggan was born to blush unseen but when " Eich " was kept out of the game on account of injuries, " Dug " was worked at fullback and he made good. The big " Hoosier " hit the line with terrific speed, circled the ends, and ran good interference. " Eddie " played espe- cially well against the Army. In this game he repeatedly carried the ball through the Soldier ' s defense for yardage, and in the third quarter literally tore the West Point line to shreds. Duggan graduates in June and his loss will be severely felt. This year many players who have earned enviable reputations are leaving Notre Dame but none of them will be missed as much as Eichenlaub. The big " Dutchman " was on the injured list the greater part of the season but he came back in the Carlisle and Syracuse games and flashed like the Eichenlaub of old. On offense " Eich " is without an equal; on defense, playing guard, he is without a superior. To retell Ray ' s abilities is useless, for his praises have been sung too much in the last four years to need repetition. " Eich " will long be remembered not only as the King of Football but also as the King of Goodfellows. During the last three weeks of the season Cofall had a good running mate in Kelleher who played the other half. Bill got away to a poor start but his fearless tackling, terrific line plung- ing, and remarkable running interference soon won him a place in the regular line-up. The " Wild Irishman " was handicapped by injuries in ' 12 and ' 13 and did not have an opportunity to play, although he won a monogram in 1911. The splendid showing he made in the Army, Carlisle and Syracuse games, however, was a well earned and fitting climax to his football career. Bergman was the surprise of the year. Although he reported late, the " Flying Dutch- man " played in every game of the season, except the Alma game, and improved in each contest. Fast, shifty, cool under fire, and a good field general, he ran the team so well that he was placed on the All-Western eleven. " Bergie " starred in every game. Against Haskell he scored the three touchdowns made by Notre Dame after spectacular runs from the middle of the field; in the South Dakota fray he ran eighty yards through the entire Coyote team. The loss of " Bergie " is a severe one. When the men reported for practice. Coach Rockne picked Mills as good material for an end and, under the careful guidance of " Rock, " the long Jerseyite developed into a player of no mean ability. Rupe leaves us in June, and we regret that this popular all-around athlete will not return. Baujan is another wing man who learned the fine points of the game from Coach Rockne. " Butch " made good this year, and has two years yet to play. Stephan also made his monogram this year, and should be a power in the line during the ' 15 season. Holmes, erstwhile star on the Freshman team, also participated in several contests and displayed form that presages future success. To Ward, H. O ' Donnell, King, Voelkers, Miller, Oden, Beh, Kowalski and Bush, is due great praise for hard and unselfish work. Coaches Harper and Rockne merit much glory for their successful endeavor to develop a winning team. They will preside over the destinies of the Gold and Blue next fall. Their presence insures success. II L 4r 148 J COFALL SPILLS L E G O P E " Reprinted by couriesy of Yftle Courant L. •OFF TACKLE FOR A FEW YARDS ' Reprinted by couriesy of Y le Coui Meeting The Team eaten! Despite the play-by-play bulletins, despite the glaring headlines on the " Extras, " it seemed almost unbelievable. " The first time in four years, anyhow. " Yes, that was some consolation. You forgot your own grief then. You forgot the gang that would " kid " you at Christmas. You even ceased to deplore the evanescence of the cash that you had hocked your watch to raise. You thought of the team. You summoned up for proper considera- tion the fact that never before in your college career, had you seen a Notre Dame eleven return vanquished. And so with bands, and cars and noises indescribable, you sallied forth to meet the team that had fared eastward to battle Yale. And from Erich deFries, who twirled a broomstick baton at the head of the marchers, to the tiniest minim who skived as far as the Fire Hall, everyone was determined to put as good a face on vicissitude as should grace the finest win. A thousand fellows shrieking, shouting and cheering, swarmed about the old Lake Shore Station. Townspeople caught the spirit of the thing, and Gold and Blue colors broke out all over town. It was a surprise to the team. It was a surprise to the people who crowded curiously about the Pullman windows. And it was a finer exemplification of the true Notre Dame spirit that it could have been had the fortunes of war been reversed. The Syracuse Game he excitement wasn ' t as tense perhaps as it was on a couple of previous oc- casions. But we were mighty anxious to finish the season with a victory. Michigan had to be kept in mind. By a devious and circuitous method of com- paring scores they might appear to have something " upon " us. But if we trounced Syracuse after the Orange had trimmed the Yost Crew to a pale pink frappe, the roundabout route wouldn ' t work, and the direct dope would leave nothing for the Ann Arbor continguent to say in rebuttal. And so it transpired. Eich was in again, as were several other stars who had been kept out of other contests by injuries sustained in practice. And the way Eich and the other veterans played their farewell game, kept the crowd in front of Jimmy and Goat ' s in a perfect ecstacy of enthusiasm. Traffic cops and street cars contributed their feeble might toward keeping the streets clear. But when Eich went through for thirty or smashed across for a touchdown, everybody had to stage an impromptu snake dance, cops to the contrary not- withstanding. Bulletins are a poor substitute for the real action, but when they record play by play, the best game of the season, when they show the old stars playing in their old-time form, they generate a good deal of spontaneous enthuiasm. And when the Gold and Blue had turned the trick, when carping critics were nonplussed and the windup was a win, you felt just about as satisfied as if you had seen the whole shindig with opera glasses, from the ne plus ultra of the reserved section. " So in view of the cricumstances. You ' ll pardon our modest boast, For that team is slick, that can turn the trick On the crew that smothered Yost. " The Season L fter a month of preliminary practice in the gym, and a few outdoor workouts in Arctic weather, the ' Var- sity met Wisconsin in the opening tilt of the season. The visitors could not touch Kelly, and were soundly trounced, 9-2. Olivet was the next victim of the locals, who pounded out thirteen safeties, for a total of fourteen runs. Then came the first setback. Michigan, after an extended southern trip, stopped off on Easter Monday to capture a 5-1 game, after a pretty battle. It was simply a case of a team in mid-season form meeting one which had very little real practice. The locals fielded well, but were unable to touch Sisler when hits meant runs. The same fault was evident in the next contest against Western Normal, but luck and better fielding gave Notre Dame a 6-1 decision. The war clubs were still weak when Ar- mour was encountered, but again errors of their opponents gave the locals the verdict. The big change came in the Bethany game, when the Gold and Blue at last struck its batting stride. An even dozen safeties were chalked up, Farrell alone getting four, and these lusty swats put the game on ice. In the next contest, fourteen more hits were registered, and Ohio Wesleyan was sent home white- washed by a 12-0 score. Just after this, there came out of the North a tribe of great warriors — the Michigan Aggies. Miller, on the mound for the visitors, held the locals until the eighth. Then, with the score 3-2 against them, the ' Varsity began to fight as they had not fought all year. Farrell stepped into a fast one and brought upon third, then Newning, Duggan and Myers followed suit, and when the smoke cleared, the locals had pocketed four runs and the game. The games scheduled with Arkansas and Hawaii were not played because of rain. The Eastern trip which followed was the biggest event of the season. Six games were played in as many days, and notwithstanding the fact that the best teams in the country were encountered, and a long jump taken every night, the ' Varsity captured four of them. West Virginia was the first victim. Heinie Berger allowed nine hits, but fanned eleven, and held the Morgantown aggregation to three runs, while the locals were getting thirteen hits, for a total of twelve counters. The next opponent was Georgetown. Captain Kelly held the Gray and Blue squad to six hits, but the men fielded poorly, making five errors, and this lost the game. After a jump from Washington to West Point, " Charlie " Sheehan proceeded to get re- venge for the defeat of the previous season, and with the help of spectacular field- ing by Newning and Myers, held the soldiers to seven hits, and struck out eight, getting four bingles himself. The final score was 9-3. The locals then journeyed to Princeton, where they ran into some hard luck. The Tigers made four errors, and garnered six hits, Notre Dame made eight hits and two errors, yet lost, 4-1. The Catholic U. had to suffer from the resulting exasperation of Coach Harper ' s squad, who drove three twirlers to cover, while amassing thirteen runs. The last game was against the Navy, and Sheehan gave the Sailors the same treatment as their brother officers received, holding them to four bingles, and a 4-2 score. In a loosely played game, St. Viators was defeated in the next home contest. 154 ;st. ■ I The following game was the most peculiar affair ever pulled off on the home lot. Beloit furnished the attraction, and in nine innings, victory swung back and forth nine times, the visitors finally winning, 13-10. Twenty-seven hits and thirteen er- rors proved it was " some " game. As usual, Notre Dame came right back in the following tilt, handing Lake Forest an artistic coat of whitewash, while collecting eleven runs themselves. The last of May found Wabash as the guests of the Gold and Blue in the final home games of the season. The first battle was the prettiest staged on Carter field since the Arkansas battle in ' 12. Wabash got two runs ahead in the ninth, and the game seemed lost, but Kelly, Farrell and Lathrop evened the count. " Moke " then went into the box, and held the Little Giants scoreless, until he broke up the contest himself with a double in the eleventh. This game seemed to take the " pep " out of the visitors, as the second was an easy 12-3 victory. The final trip of the season was the hardest test of all. The Aggies were en- countered first, but the mighty slugging behind Kelly brought home a 12-4 victory. The Wolverines, the next opponents, were victims of a " sweet revenge. " With Kelly opposing Quaintance and Baribeau, Notre Dame drove out nine hits for as many runs, while the Ann Arbor lads were held to three tallies. The next day was a dif- ferent tale, with the Maize and Blue in the role of avengers. As a whole, the season was a thorough success, and great credit is due to the men individually for their work. Their record is sufficient testimony to the ability of Coach Harper, who welded the men into a quick-thinking, accurate machine. = 1 ' L. m Iffll il l - HR I mk " AWAITING THE EAST BOUND ' L 155 J From left lo right — Kelly, p; Harper, coach; Gray, c; Farrell. lb; Meyers, ss; Bjoin, rf; Duggan. cf; H.

L 156 J • ' The Players he Gold and Blue squad of 1914 carved out the splendid record of 17 games won and 5 lost, and with a percentage of .773, stood in the front rank of American college teams. What makes the record the more remarkable is the fact that the schedule was the hardest ever undertaken by a Notre Dame team. The best nines in the West — Michigan, Wisconsin and the Aggies — appeared on Cartier Held, while on the Eastern invasion, the ' Varsity encountered Princeton, Georgetown, West Point, Annapolis, the Catholic U., and West Virginia. The three game series with Michigan, at Cartier and Ferry fields, furnished prob- ably as good an exhibition of College baseball as occurred anywhere. Coach Harper possesses a thorough knowledge of the chief factor t- ' w in diamond success, the inside " dope, " and he coached the men so thor- ■I oughly in this respect that they appeared on the field with all the latest W assortment of big league stuff. The men were on their toes every r moment, ready to stretch a hit for an extra base, or make a daring steal. _ Af , This alertness pulled several close contests out of the fire. An average ■•Mw r of ten hits a game shows that the locals were no mean swatsmiths, in- deed it was their ability to connect with the pellet that was the greatest factor in the team ' s success. Only three men of the winning aggregation of ' 13 were lost by graduation, O ' Connell. Granfleld and " Rusty " Lathrope, the last two having gone to the big leagues. Of the monogram men. Captain Kelly, Gray, Farrell, Berger, Mills, Kenny, Duggan, Sheehan, and Lathrope answered the call for candidates in late February. Some fifty-odd new aspirants appeared, of whom Harry Newning, Myers, and Bergman won regular berths, while Pliska. D. Newning, and Bjoin filled substitute roles. Coach Harper was blessed at the outset with the services of three veteran pitchers. Captain Kelly, now making good with the Pittsburgh Pirates, was undoubtedly one of the best twirlers in College ranks. Possessing a fast ball with a nice hop, and an assortment of curves that made opposing batters dizzy, " Moke " set up a splendid record, winning eight out of ten games. But " Nig " could do more than pitch — he could bat like a fiend, and run bases with the best, and his ability in this respect broke up several extra-inning games. " Heinle " Berger was the local speed king. On a dark day, the big German had hostile batters completely at his mercy. After a poor start, he improved wonderfully as the sea- son went on, and in the very last game of the year, against the Wolverines, he was un- L 157 J ■i hittable for the five innings he twirled. Heinie was also a first rate sticlier, getting a bingle or two in every game. He won five, and lost two contests. The big surprise of the last half of the season was Charlie Sheehan. Like his partner, he got away to a poor start, but the artistic beating he handed to the Army and the Navy on the Eastern trip are evidences of his real ability. Dave — he wouldn ' t recognize the name, but that ' s the way he was baptized — had a slow, deliberate manner, and wide tantaliz- ing curves, that were very exasperating to opposing batters. " Charlie " captured four contests, and lost one. To uphold the boxmen, Notre Dame had two of the best receivers in her history, in Gray and Kenny. " Dolly " Gray, now a regular on the Wichita, Western league, team, knows baseball from A to Z, and then some, and as a general he was without a peer. His ability to d rive bingles just inside the right field foul line, made him most valuable in the team ' s offense. His batting ability was all the more useful since he was one of the best base-runners on the squad " Joe " Kenny was perhaps the more finished catcher of the two. " Chubby " could hold up any pitcher he ever met, and not only that, but save at least one or two sure- enough wild heaves every game. It is said that in the West Virginia con- test, he picked Berger ' s assortment out of heaven and earth. Joe had a wonderful whip too, and kept the men on bases well in hand. First base was guarded by ex-Captain Farrell, in the last of three years of splendid service to the Gold and Blue. When it is mentioned that " Cy " was awarded the Mayr fob, as being the most valuable man on the team, theres ' enough said. He not only fielded his position in fine style, but was working every minute, backing up his team-mates. At the bat, he was a steady consistent hitter, his timely swats breaking up the Aggie and Wabash games. At second, the New Jersey giant, Rupe Mills, gobbled everything in reach, including apparently safe hits. For a big man, Rupe played a great fielding game. At bat, his specialty was home runs, in a ratio of one to every two games. Myers, at short, was only slightly smaller than Rupe, yet he too, displayed first rate ability in covering ground. But the " Chief " was best at the bat, where he had the happy knack of poling out long, low drives that were nearly all safeties. Though not a fast man, he ranked high among the base-stealers. ■ L 158 ■ J f The hot corner was never better cared for than The plucky Texan gave us the prettiest exhibition several years. Fast or slow, bunts or line drives, them all in. The most remarkable thing, however, could shoot the ball straight across the diamond. by Harry Newning. of flelding seen in " Possum " gathered was his whip. He with the speed and accuracy of a bullet, from almost any position. Harry was also one of the best stickers on the squad, corralling two or three long drives a game. The local trio of outfielders had speed for their middle name. Bergman in left, was a light hitter, but as lead-off man, he often worked opposing pitchers for four wide ones, and to give J- — him first meant usually to see him on third a mo- ment later. Duggan was the best fielder of the trio, po- sessing some unerring instinct that enabled him to get away with the crack of the bat. After hitting splendidly in ' 13, Eddie had some jinx perched on his warclub till the last part of the ' 14 season, but then he came back strong. For his good work, and his own personal qualities of steadiness and co olness, he was chosen captain for the ' 15 season. Lathrop was the premier swatsmith among the gardeners. " Zipper " stood right up to the plate, picked out one to his liking, and drove it far afield, usually where the fielders weren ' t. He also pulled off more hair-raising catches than any man on the team. Joe Pliska, because of his ability to sting the ball at opportune times, was the utility gardener. Joe did not get much opportunity to distinguish himself, but when called on, he was always there with the goods. Sam Newning played the infield and outfield with equal facility, and made good in both places. In the closing game of the season, ' won him a regular outfield berth, where he put up a fine game. Andy Bjoin was also a first class batter, and was used as a pinch hitter. In the Beloit swatfast of bitter memory, he did his best to stave off defeat, producing four safeties. 4M» ' Dee ' s " hitting ability X »r ' L 159 ■ J Basketball N. D.

Many of the games were very close, but the individual speed and ability of the men, coupled with their machine-like teamwork, captured most of the hard contests. When the season began. Coach Harper had three veterans to build on. Mills, Captain Kenny and Finegan. After a long sifting process, Fitzgerald and Daley were chosen to fill the vacant places. Late in the season, " Fitz " was hurt, and Bergman being called on, he put up a splendid exhibition in the remaining big games. Things looked bad at the start, the raw passwork and poor shooting in the first three games, casting a gloomy tinge over the fans. In the next contest. Northwestern led up to the last five minutes of play, when the ' Varsity, by a great spurt, clinched the victory. This exhibition of " pep " seemed to awaken a new spirit, and as the teamwork developed, Beloit, South Bend Y., Indiana Dental, Polish Seminary, and St. Ignatius, were all defeated in a decisive fashion. These games served to develop the locals, and mold them into a fighting unit, and when the . ' Aggies, practically unbeatable on their peculiar home court, were met at Lansing, there was a grand battle. The tilt was lost by one point, but this was a virtual victory. Three days later, Wabash was encountered in what proved to be the hardest battle of the season in the local gym. Time after time one team would draw slightly ahead, after a beautiful long toss, or piece of lightning passwork, but two baskets by Mills in the last moment gave the Gold and Blue the palm by a single goal. The ' Varsity machine had now reached its full development, and very few Notre Dame quintets have ever equalled it. When the Aggies invaded the local court in a return game, they were decisively beaten, and two days later the ' Varsity journeyed to Indianapolis to trim the Battery A team, one of the best in the state, in a very close battle. A quick jump home, and West Virginia was defeated, and then Wabash was encountered on her home court. The game went two extra five-minute periods, in the last of which, two long tosses gave the Scarlet victory. The locals then closed the season in fitting manner by nosing out Rose Poly the next evening. In Captain Kenny, Notre Dame had perhaps the fastest college forward in Indiana. The center of all the teamwork, Joe was a past grand master at working the ball down the court 162 The ■ ourt, I n and eluding opponents by his wonderful speed. He could shoot from any distance or angl and his dribbling proved too much for the best defensive men in the state. His running mate during the greater part of the year was Fitzgerald, and for a big man, Fitz was won- derfully fast. His aggressiveness and stamina made him invaluable in hard battles. The Oregonian was the expert foul tosser on the squad, rarely missing more than one chance out of five. Bergman was another type, diminutive but fast and slippery as a rabbit. His shooting was much better than last year, and his ability to cover territory made him a valuable cog in the teamwork. At center, Rupe Mills played the same heady, steady game that marked his work last year. He never lost the tip-off, and his ability to lose his man, for free shots, was almost uncanny. At close range, he was a sure shot. This season produced about the best pair of guards in local history. Finegan defended the goal, and the 170 pound football star was an almost impregnable wall. Sam was also the field general, and could pick weak spots in a flash. Working every moment, he often kept two men under cover ' till assistance came. His teammate, Daley, was the biggest find of the season. A splendid shot, a quick thinker, and full of daring and aggressiveness, Dick was really the third forward in a wonderful offense. But he was always in the thick- est of a fight under his own basket, possessing that most valuable quality in a guard, of knowing when to attack, and when to fall back. Dick is the 1916 captain and we wish him all good luck. " 1 ing I Varsity Track — Outdoor Season omparison with track teams of other years leaves the balance slightly in favor of the " teams that were. " But merely because we have but few men of the stamp of Philbrook, Martin, Wasson and Fletcher, we need not fail of due apprecia- tion for the splendid track team that the pres- ent year has evolved. Notre Dame is always a very formidable competitor in all Middle Western meets, a fact abundantly attested by the calibre of her opponents, and the scores the Gold and Blue invariably annexes against the best talent that grows west of the AUe- ghenies. Last year was the first time in sev- eral seasons that Notre Dame has failed to score in the Pennsylvania relay games. This year something like the old-time form was approximated, when Bachman handily cap- tured first in the discus, and won also minor positions in other events. Outdoors, where the Gold and Blue is particularly effective, the Illinois Athletic Club ' s Olympic stars were forced to exert themselves to the utmost to garner the long end in the scoring. The Indiana Inter-Collegiate meet, to all intents and purposes a Purdue -Notre Dame dual meet, found us again content with the minority of points, but established as second best in a meet where every school in the state had an opportunity to com- pete. The Conference meet saw us place in but two events, Eichenlaub being third in the shotput and Bergman third in the hundred. KNUTE ROCKNE, Coach I INDOOR When Coach Rockne took charge of the squad last fall, he found only three monogram men with which to form the nucleus of a winning team. Captain Eichenlaub, " Dutch " Bergman and " Marty " Henehan were a worthy trio on which to build, however, and under Knute ' s very capable supervision the new material was hammered into first-class form. " Eich ' s " resignation necessitated the election of another captain, and Bergman was elevated to office. The schedule he had to cope with was probably the stifTest ever faced by Notre Dame. Dual meets with the I. A. C, Wisconsin and Michigan, as well as the A. A. U. championships, gave Coach Rockne plenty of work in rounding his squad into form. The preliminary workouts established conclusively the fact that some of the best material ever seen in the local gym, was awaiting the starter ' s gun for the big events. The A. A. U. meet was a triumph for the Gold and Blue, the locals finishing ahead of Illinois, Michigan, Wis- consin and Chicago. Bachman won the shotput, and Hardy created a sensation by beating the famous Joe Loomis in the 50-yard dash. Hardy and Bachman, by the way, are two of the finest track performers in present-day activity. Hardy ' s victory over Joe Loomis seems to presage a career for him, equal to that of Fletcher, of Olympic game renown. Bachman ' s recent discus victory at the Penn Relay Games is equally significant. . ■ 166 les I ■ The Wisconsin and Michigan meets found us content with the fewer points. The outlook for next season is far brighter than the prospects at the same time a year ago. The men who have done their utmost to uphold the honor of Notre Dame this year are Wagge in the mile, Bergman and Hardy in the dashes, Eichenlaub, Keefe and Bachman in the weights, Voelkers in the mile, Bartholomew in the one and two-mile events, Kirkland and Shaughnessy in the hurdles, Welsh in the quarter and McCosker in the mile. Great credit is due Track Coach Knute Rockne, himself one of Notre Dame ' s greatest athletes, who brought to his work, expert knowledge, infinite patience and the old N. D. loyalty that cannot fail to make for success. THE TEAM L 167 ■ J TCSv? a. b i— j£ L TRACK ' ?? ' S : " :_:£•■■ fr Butch " RTTi " s :eH B Ci, ! ;n : 1 la J I Interhall Football n Won Lost Percent.

The 1914 interhall football season presented the strangest mix-up of facts and fancy, good football, and marvelous rulings, that has occurred in recent years. The season began with a nice, new set of eligibility rules, neatly reposing with the managers of the several halls. But before it was half through those rules had pro- voked more discussion than a Conference agreement. They were turned, twisted and tied up in knots, then they were straightened out at a get-together love feast, but they refused to stay put. " Who is a football player? " became the biggest riddle at Notre Dame — not excepting Jim. But Sorin became the goat in this wise: The " Bookies " collection of eligibles, and alleged non-eligibles, had a wide margin on the choicest products of the other halls, conse- quently the latter agreed that Sorin should forfeit the games in which the supposed non-eligibles appeared. As the ratio in favor of this plan had the overwhelming ma- jority of 4 to 1, and as not one of the four would let another have the championship honors — " Sorin really won it, you know! " — the cup was taken possession of by the Prefect of Discipline, whose assistance was called in, and he will put it on exhibition next year, along with a new set of rules. While the matter was being argued from morning buns to night prayer, winter came to drop a white blanket on the whole affair. Despite the linguistic encounters, some mighty fine football was shown — per- haps the b est in several years. Sorin had a wonderfully strong team. Stack, Welsh, Culligan, Carmody, Henehan, Shaughnessy and Matthews being near- ' Varsity calibre, too near for safety. Culligan, the former St. Thomas star, being ineligible for the ' Varsity, was easily the best player ever seen in interhall. Jack could run like a deer, drive through the line like a bullet, shoot perfect forward passes, and put up an im- pregnable defense. With Matty, the little speed marvel, Henehan and Hynes, assist- ing " Cully, " the Sorinites had a backfield that many a college ' Varsity might be proud of. The work of this quintet, and Mike Carmody at end, in the Corby game, was remarkable. Corby also had a fine squad, good enough to win the banner ordinarily. The line was heavy and fast, and in Ryan and Corcoran, the Wolves had a splendid pair of wing men. In the backfield, Bergman and Whalen did some fine work, the latter particularly being an excellent ground gainer. The proverbial speed of the Corbyites carried them easy victories over Walsh and St. Joe. Brownson had a good aggregation of individual players, but as usual the team- work was lacking. Callahan at center, Jones and Morales in the line, and Wolf and Kline at the ends were good men, the first being the premier pivot at Notre Dame, outside of Captain Fitzgerald of the ' Varsity. Rydzewski at fullback was the best offensive back of the Purple and White. The Brownsonites were outlucked in the game with the Saints, as they displayed the better football throughout; Walsh was easy for all three opponents of the Orange and Black. 170 Jl Interhall Baseball— 1914 Won Lost Percent.

Consistent good work at bat and in the field enabled the Corbyites to hold a commanding lead all through the season. Only in the closing days of the race did the other halls have a chance. Early June saw the most exciting game of the season, when Brownson battled with the league lead- ers from 4:00 until 7:00 P. M., and finally captured the glorious swatfest by a 13-10 score. The next Thursday, Walsh essayed to repeat the trick, but with the score 9-4 against them in the eighth, the Braves clouted out seven runs, clinching the game and championship. St. Joe took second place, mainly through the efforts of Captain " Jimmy " Boland, the best pitcher in Interhall. Had Bro. Flo. ' s boys been able to hit a little bett er, results might have been different, as " Nig " Kane, Bartel, Conboy and Stack were as good as any men in the league. Brownson, as usual, had a splendid team individually, but something usually gave way in the teamwork in the final innings. Motz, Flynn, Thorpe, Kline and Crilly did good work for the Brownsonites. Dope put Sorin ' way below the other Halls, but somehow, Havlin acquired the knack of hitting three-baggers with his eyes shut, and assisted by Shorty Hynes, O ' Donnell, Cofall, Walsh et al., he put the Bookies three games to the good. But none were undeserved victories, as the boys from " Marbles " Hall fought nine iil- nings every game. Walsh brought up the rear, the Orange contingent being too busy interring the Scholastic to cope with the others. Yet Father MacNamara would have had a good team, were delinquent lists no bar to athletic prowess. As it was, Brooks, Leuty, Hayes, Campbell and Tschudi were forced to extraordinary efforts to make Walsh ' s league standing somewhat presentable. S ;. .!ALL t § f f 1 WALSH HALL Interhall Basketball season replete with exciting games, enthusiastic rooting and close scores, finally gave the championship to the Corby Hall quintet. There were six contesting teams in the race, unusually evenly matched and intent upon winning the championship. The fast and clever contests staged excited almost as much local interest as did the ' Varsity basketball con- tests. The fortunes of war were pretty evenly apportioned at first, but gradually Corby and Brownson drew away from other competitors. It was an open issue for some time, and the final triumph of Father Finegan ' s Braves was well earned indeed. Sorin finished a close third, and had the satisfaction of having made the victors fight all the way for their laurels. Another element of interest was the entrance of the " Day-Dodgers " into the league. The town dwellers were just getting under way well, when the season concluded. Nevertheless, the South Benders gave a good account of themselves, and set a precedent that should be followed by the " Day- Dodgers " of other years. The members of the victorious team were Bergman, Leary, King, Keefe, Baujan and Rydzewski. An abundance of good veteran material in all the halls should insure plenty of candidates for Interhall and ' Varsity honors next season. Interhall Track Season he inter-hall track season of 1914-1915 was one of the most successful in the history of inter-hall athletics. This is due in part to the fact that all fcotbail and baseball men were urged to keep limbered up by track work. A great quantity of excellent Freshman material infused into the inter-hall personnel, was another factor in maintaining the high standard of inter-hall accomplish- ment. Brownson emerged victorious, after a number of close and exciting meets. Fr. Burke ' s men captured the final meet with 40 points, Corby collecting 30 2, Sorin Tid ' A, St. Joe 19, and Walsh 6.

Relay — Brownson. fnother year has elbowed its way through the silent turnstile of time, and another class is preparing to fare forth to the battle front of the world ' s activities. The record of the year at Notre Dame, athletically and other- wise, is hardly so resplendent as some seasons that have gone before. In the do- main of impromptu activities, the showing by contrast is poor indeed. There has been no novitiate fire, no " return from Elba " with brass bands and gratulatory speeches. There has been no sensational " canning " episode, no marble deluge, no Orpheum riot of note. The " pep " of past generations of students seems to be dying of inanition. The only " really and truly " interesting event of the last twelve months was the issuing of the 1914 Dome. " There spoke a Spartan. " But lest any more Lacedemonians arise in our midst, the Faculty appointed a Dome censor. Our " Varsity Humor " is flat, insipid and lifeless in the extreme. It was denatured by the censor. One more calamity chalked up against 1915. We had the customary number of bona fide and near notables. Senators and Judges and the Secretary of the Navy have come and gone. The usual quota of speeches, lectures and concerts have been suffered through in silence. In athletics, the gloom deepens. Yale " went and did it " and Army followed suit. Michigan had the long end of the wins in base- ball. We lost track meets to Wisconsin and Michigan. But enough of the sob stuff. We triumphed against Carlisle, Syracuse and South Dakota, not to mention the usual number of practicees. We won a goodly number of games in the greatest Eastern baseball tour the Gold and Blue has ever made. Why worry, then, because our next year ' s football schedule is cluttered up with normal schools? Bachman re- established us at the Penn Relay games. Eugene Daniel didn ' t go out for debating. The meals didn ' t fail to retrograde some more. The " both ends meat " scandal caused a momentary ripply of bored interest. Red tape has in no wise diminished or abated. It is rumored that we are to have a new library, and that same will be hid behind Old College. The " gym " was (Not!!) extended to the road. A new bleachers was NOT constructed on Cartier Field. The tile kitchen rumor of June days has proven a myth. Sameness is the keynote and the rule. And so it was last year, and so it shall be next. Surprised indeed shall we be, if next year ' s little tabloid summary is not also fringed with innocuous desuetude, veneered with ennui and garnished with ' sameness. " L 177 rHHI Hj The 1914 Commencement RAISING THE FLAG Uwa ist( est ever " was the unanimous verdict of all who attended the 1914 Com- mencement exercises. The weather conditions were never more aus- picious, the speakers were never more eloquent, the graduates were never more joyous, the parents were never more proud, the teachers were never better satisfied, the Juniors never " skived " in greater numbers, etc. ad infinitum. From the time the first visit- ors arrived until the last of the men of ' 14 had left the campus there was not a single happen- ing that marred the general felicity of the season. The exercises were opened on Saturday even- ing, June 13, with an eloquent address on " So- cialism, " delivered by the Honorable James Eli Watson, one of the most brilliant of Indiana ' s many orators. On Sunday morning. Solemn Mass was celebrated in the University Chapel by Monsignor O ' Brien (LL. D. ' 95), assisted by Rev. M. Walsh, C. S. C, and Rev. M. Schumacher, C. S. C. The Baccalaureate Sermon was preached by Reverend Father Gavisk of Indianapolis. Immediately after Mass, the flag of the Class of ' 14 was raised amidst the mingled cheers of graduates and Alumni. A business meeting of the Alumni Association was held on Sunday afternoon, and the annual Alumni Banquet was the feature of the evening ' s entertainment. The Bachelor ' s orations were delivered in Washington Hall at 10 o ' clock on Monday. The Bachelor Orators were Charles Emile Dorais, LL. B., ' 14, Martin Emmett Walter, Ph. B., ' 14, and William Michael Calvin, Ph. B., ' 14. The annual " Var- sity-Alumni baseball game was played on Mon- day afternoon at 2 o ' clock, and resulted in an easy victory for the ' Varsity. At 4 :30, the crowd gathered in Sacred Heart Church to hear an organ recital given by Father Finn, C. S. P., of Chicago. Father Finn was assisted by a quar- tette selected from the world-famed Paulist Choristers. The Commencement exercises proper took place on Monday evening before an audience that overtaxed the seating capacity of Washing- ton Hall. The Class Poem was read by Maurice Norckauer and the Valedict ory was delivered by Joseph M. Walsh. The address of the even- ing was delivered by Senator Joseph E. Ransdell of Louisiana. The medals and diplomas were awarded and another class had passed into story. 178 A DISTINGUISHED VISITOR Senior Class Meeting HELD IN SORIN LAW ROOM. 7:30 P. M, MONDAY. SEPT. 28ih. 1914. Bob Roach President Mark Duncan Vice-President Albert Kuhle Secretary Joe Pliska Treasurer Schuster Cheer Leader by Acclamation he Hayes-Schuster machine conducted an energetic vote-coralling catn- paign for Linehan, but when the lull that followed the din of battle en- abled the count to be announced, they learned with pained surprise that Bob Roach had nosed out a victory by three votes. The old roller, im- placable and immutable, vanquisher of many combines, and pride of Corby for years, had been imported with the Senior hordes from the neighboring abode of athletic trophies. It had awed Stack, terrified Smith, and crushed Sanford. Their three votes, cast in fear and trembling, carried the issue. Schuster ' s flowery nominating speech availed not. So did days of canvassing and plotting. Hoist with their own petard (or should it be " hoisted " ), they let the rest of the slate go by the board. Duncan, Kuhle and Pliska were triumphantly elevated to office. And then retribution. Schuster was made cheer leader, and goaded into frenzied speech. It was a great meeting. The last session of the Old Guard is replete with memories in- teresting and amusing. The old fifteen spirit, invincible since Freshman days, flared forth again. It was a good fight, hotly contested, and won and lost by narrow mar- gins. The Senior elections were over. The class ' last officers were in! The Dome Dedication I ham Mysterious rumors (probably borne of last year ' s dedication episode) filled the air for some days prior to the dedication of the 1915 Dome. Would there be a fusion of the two classes, or would there be deep and dark treachery? Would the engineers and scientists unite or would they not? Men marveled that things could be so uncertain and cosmic matters so ill defined. Filtering furtively forth, came the rumor that some legal firebrands would not be caught " sleeping on their rights. " A movement for an arts and letters caucus died of inanition. Then President Roach had notices posted. The die was cast. Lawyer and philosopher, architect and engineer, marked their ballots side by side. All was harmony. The Ph. B. nomination was seconded by a lawyer. There developed not the slightest opposition. Father Carrico was the unanimous choice of the whole Senior class. Talk about love feasts! The question of somnolent rights didn ' t have a look-in. The terrible treachery, darkly hinted, proved to be about as substantial an entity as a Notre Dame porterhouse on Friday. The classes had achieved the impossible. A harmonious Dome dedication had passed into history! 179 ■ ■■■■ ■J PRESENTATION OF THE COLLECTION GREENE America ' s presented did botanical Doctor Greene n event of signal impor- tance to the University oc- curred during the present school year, when Edward Lee Greene, LL.D., Ph.D., greatest historical botanist, to Notre Dame, his splen- ibrary and herbarium, enjoys international u fame as an authority on botanical matters, and his library of 4,000 vol- umes and herbarium of more than 100,- 000 specimens, own no superiors in the United States. Doctor Greene was born on August 20th, 1843, at Hopkin- ton, Rhode Island. He received the de- gree of Bachelor of Philosophy at Al- bion College in 1856. He became an in- structor and widened his field of botan- ical observation by teaching in a differ- ent locality every year. Between 1872 and 1885, he botanized through nearly every state in the Union. His labors in this intricate science, brought him wide- spread recognition, and he was asked to take charge of the Department of Botany of the University of California. This position he held until 1895, when he resigned to accept the chair of botanical instruc- tion at Catholic University. In 1904 he was made Honorary Associate in Botany under aus- pices of the Smithsonian Institute. At the University of California he established the Botanical Journal and published his famous Flora Franciscana. He also encouraged the foundation of other botanical publications. He is the author of " Landmarks of Botanical History, " " Pittonia " in five volumes, two complete volumes of " Leaflets of Botanical Observation, " " Cybele Columbina " and " Plantae Bakerianae, " as well as numerous other authoritative treatises on botanical subjects. The second volume of his " Landmarks of Bo- tanical History " is now in course of completion. Doctor Greene is also the author of numerous contributions to botanical publications throughout the world. His library includes many old. rare and valuable volumes, a large number of which have no duplicates in America. Dr. Greene has no superior in the vast field of Western Botany, his profound knowledge of western flora being attested by the fact that he is able to name at sight any bo- tanical specimens presented by the Department of Forestry. Doctor Green ' s herbarium, from a scientific standpoint, is one of the most complete and beautifully prepared collections ever assembled. The type plants contained therein, are of such a kind that it has been said that no student of Western Botany can hope to do even the most superficial work without consulting these plants. The value of this splendid collection and the botanical library, is well in excess of $40,000. Doctor Greene is indeed a most valuable addition to the faculty of the University of Notre Dame. He will, hereafter, have charge of the graduate depart- ment of Botany. 180 J ' ■■■ ' ■.: . ' i . - -1 ' . .• -.. J4 k r fl M ' w n w V fj L Old England Sends Her Best oble as is the self-sacrifice of the Catholic missionary whose days are spent in pagan wilds, the efforts of him who carries the fruits of his life-long study to the famished world of civilization are no less worthy of laudation. Perhaps this was our strongest sentiment when the modest, unassuming gentleman whom England respects under the name of Cecil Chesterton stood before us. " Catholicism and Democracy, " a sub- ject to which this renowned brother of the incomparable Gilbert Keith has given his every thought, is one which the Catholic college man must study. Suffice it to say that the importance of social study was brought home to us by Mr. Chesterton ' s lecture with a force and appeal quite startling in its originality. N o less important were the literary addresses of Sir Wilfred Ward, editor of the world - famed " Dublin Review. " The learned friend of Tennyson and biographer of Newman spoke this year on " Huxley the Man, " and on the various phases of the great oratorian cardinal ' s literary achievement. Every one of his five lectures was an event; so fraught were they with knowledge, insight and re- flection. Certainly such discussions as were offered by these two thinkers will not soon be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to hear them. Lectures by world-renowned literateurs stimulate interest in classics in a fashion that the more difficult text books have been unable to do. To hear at first hand the charming incidents of actual association with Lord Tennyson, the many interesting phases of Cardinal Newman ' s life, by his greatest biographer, is an opportunity that Notre Dame students have not been slow to reap the benefits of. The lectures by Cecil Chesterton and Wilfred Ward were two of the important events of a very busy and interesting year. CECIL CHESTERTON WILFRED WARD 181 J The Indiana Ode REV. CHARLES L. O ' DONNELL C. S. S. |]en years ago the first Dome was distributed among a body of students eager to possess the product of the untiring efforts of the first Dome board. The annual was such an unqualified success that it was immediately accepted as an institu- tion. Dome making became one of the regu- lar activities of the Senior class. It is in- deed fitting that the tenth anniversary of the birth of the Notre Dame Dome should see the first Editor-in-Chief receiving one of the highest honors within the power of the state to bestow. To be selected from a group of famous poets, to read the Ode for Indiana Day at the Panama-Pacific Exposition, is a signal distinction. Such is the nature of the tribute paid to Father Charles L. O ' Donnell ' s poetic genius by a Commission of the In- diana State Legislature. Indiana is pre- L eminently a literary state, and preferment among men of letters is correspondingly difficult of attainment. That Father O ' Donnell should have been chosen from among so many gifted poets is a tribute to his ability that needs no elaboration. Father O ' Donnell for years has been a con- tributor to many of America ' s greatest literary publications. Two recent Odes by Father O ' Donnell have merited and received widespread attention. One was writ- ten for the golden jubilee of the most Rev. John Lancaster Spalding, and the other for the ceremonies commemorating the presentation to the University of the sword of General Thomas Francis Meagher. Besides editing the pioneer Dome, Father O ' Donnell was class poet, Scholastic editor and ' Varsity debater. It was the good fortune of the class of 1915 to have him as instructor in Freshman English. Because of his thorough knowledge in- culcated by his splendid scholarship, and because the quatrains for the Art Section are from his pen, the class of Nineteen Fifteen feel particularly proud of the fact that their graduation will be committant with Father O ' Donnell ' s recognation as one of Indiana ' s foremost men of letters. Father O ' Donnell will read his Ode on Indiana Day, June 26, 1915. Father O ' Donnell ' s expanding genius will afford 1915 Dome readers in future years the satisfaction of knowing that the beautiful senti- ments expressed in verse in the first section of the book are from the gifted pen of a true son of Notre Dame. 182 J The Last of the Crews o you remember the old boat races in June, and the crowds that used to throng the banks and shaded pathways as Freshman contested with Sophomore and Junior with Senior? Do you remember the band music floating across the placid water, the cars that crept so cautiously along the wooded roadway, and the cheers that ascended from the crowds that shrieked encouragement to rival crews? The Class of Fifteen is the last to witness two consecutive seasons with the The men of ' 16 will recall one. To ' 17 it is but a tradition, dying before their But the Class of Fifteen remembers. J.

" Handsome " Jim " Sanford, then class president, conceived the idea of the nu- merals " 15 " and the crossed oar emblem. He also conceived, but speedily aban- doned, the idea of levying a subscription to pay for same. But from J.

We and the foot and mouth disease were the only real sensations observed en route. The walking was good in spots, and worse elsewhere. Terror of the " H and F " malady cut off a gratuitous food sup- ply, inasmuch as we could not even dare to approach the horny handed sons of toil. In the midst of these woes Marcus brilliantly alluded to the fact that we were missing two days classes, and when the riot was over, La Porte hove in view. In a barber shop there, someone mistook Finch for Eichenlaub. Of course this observation is highly irrelevant, but fioes to show what our press agent had done for us. Twenty-eight miles lay battered to a pulp behind us. " To sleep? " Ah, yes to slumber. Better, (we decided) a hay tick to a straw tack. Yes, its old, but whenever you pull it, some nut always laughs. Talk about the poor suffering Belgians — you should have slanted the Hotel-de-Gink whereat we registered. The place had been used successively as a morgue, an ice house and a harness shop. Of late, it was chiefly a home for indigent parasites. SOME PLACE. The next day we ambled twice about the town and beat it hence. We next stopped at Gary. (We omit mention of the walking because nothing of note happened.) But in the cities. Ah but that is different! Our sandals clogged with Gary sand, we bravely paddled on. There it was, however that we beheld the " Fried Oyster With Each drink " lure. Now as to the oyster the table got on Friday, the head always grabbed it. So we felt that we needed the oyster. Timidly we crept in. Something barked at us " Wllwhatchugoin ' t ' ave? " Clements and Finch fainted. Marcus went vio- lently insane, and Downey cautiously ventured that they were all Democrats. Grapejuice and the coveted oyster were speedily forthcoming. Thence we ambled on to 103 State Street, Chicago. At the White Sox park Mr. Grabiner presented us all with box seat tickets. The Herald staff photographer " mugged " us. Young ladies have embarrassed us with corres- pondence ever since. Marcus answered them all. Indeed when a few masculine friends hired an amanuensis, little Edward answered that too. We saw the game. We got a great hand in several cabarets. We grew famous. The rest is history. It was indeed memorable hike. THE " HIKEP.S " 184 :d a I The Notre Dame Scholastic L n September, 1914, the Scholastic attained its forty-seventh anniversary. Since its founding in 1867, it has maintained a high position in the realm of college publications. For years it has surpassed, in real literary worth, the organs of much larger schools, and is a more welcome visitor to its large list of readers than many other magazines, more pretentious in appearance but less meritorious in content. Even the carefully revised matter of many of the monthlies received as exchanges, cannot compare with the weekly efforts of our own students. The Scholastic has been the means of bringing out many successful news- paper and literary lights. Its back numbers contain the initial efforts of men now rated among the hierachy of the pen. Among these, perhaps, the most famous are: Father Charles O ' Donnell, recently delegated by his state to read the Indiana ode at the Panama-Pacific Exposition; Mr. Austin O ' Malley, the famous editor and writer, and Mr. J. P. McEvoy, the widely renowned humorist of the Chicago Herald. The literary tone of the Scholastic has always been a high one, and at every graduation it seems as if its pith were destined to deteriorate, but willing and competent successors have ever been at hand to keep it up to its old standard. This year, the short-story honors were carried off by the ed itor-in-chief, Arthur J. Hayes, whose " Cook of the Laugh- ing Lass " was a tale worthy of publication in any popular magazine in the country. The essays of George Schuster deserve particular mention for their simple and beautiful style and depth of thought. The stories and essays of Mark Duncan, the editorials of Emmett Lenihan, the athletic write- ups of J. Clovis Smith and Timothy P. Galvin, and the poetry of Speer Strahan were all unsurpassed in any college journal. But the work of these men would have been poor indeed without the kindly and painstaking efforts of Father Tom Burke the Faculty Editor. His delightful poetry and pleasing wit have brightened many an otherwise dull issue of the paper, and his ready and willing assistance to the ink-smeared novice has served as an inspiration to contributors and as a model to the editors. It is due to his untiring efforts during the past two years that the Scholastic has been able to maintain its old reputation among newer and more pretentiously garbed contemporaries. Next year, it is hoped, the Scholastic is to throw off its old, somber jacket and be clothed in a more fitting and tasteful cover, so that, in appearance as well as contents, it may take its place among the finest college publications in the country.

Consequently the struggle was desperate indeed, and only when the " tumult and shouting " had long been dead, were the perplexed judges venturesome enough to sug- gest a decision. This was seen to favor Mr. J. Clovis Smith, of the class of ' 15, whose ably delivered oration treated the subject of " War and World-Peace. " Mr. Smith received the Breen medal and the right to represent the University at the state oratorical contest. Mr. Emmet G. Lenihan, winner of last year ' s tro- phies, won a close second with a well-written discussion on the " Redemption of the Under- paid. " Mr. Timothy P. Galvin came third, while Mr. Ernest P. Lajoie was allotted fourth place. In the state contest, held at Indianapolis, Mr. Smith won second honors, losing by one point to the representative of Earlham College. The Peace Contest This year the oratorical aspect of peace proved somewhat unappealing to local descendants of Demosthenes, only three entries being made in the struggle for the right to represent the University in the state contest. This honor was awarded to Mr. J. Clovis Smith, who forthwith proceeded to Vincennes. There the ancient dis- trust with which the Hoosier Dove of Peace has viewed Notre Dame became once more apparent. Mr. Smith received sixth place, the initial position and privilege of entering the inter-state contest being awarded to Manchester College. ■ 192 J Debating, 1914 eldom in the history of the University has there been such an enthusiastic entry into the argumentative field as greeted the director this year. Nearly fifty budding debaters competed in the preliminaries, of whom the eight rescued for the finals captured the following positions: Mr. Timothy Galvin, first; Mr. Emmet Lenihan, second; Mr. J. Clovis Smith, third; Mr. Eugene O ' Connell, fourth; Mr. George Schuster, fifth; Mr. Frederick Gushurst, sixth. The alternates were Mr. William Galvin and Mr. Emmet Walter. The triangle between Wabash, Indiana, and Notre Dame resulted in two unani- mous victories for the Gold and Blue. A later dual c ontest with St. Viator ' s ended in a division of the spoils. Notre Dame ' s negative team won unanimously, while her affirmative aggregation lost by a decision of two to one. The question discussed dealt with the political feasibility of the Initiative and Referendum as applied to Indiana. Debating. 1915 The question offered for debate this year treated the advisability of Compulsory Arbitration as a method for settling labor disputes. While the interest shown could have been more intense, the preliminaries were nevertheless very spirited and able. The finals resulted in the following ranking of this year ' s men: Timothy Galvin, first; Emmet Lenihan, second; J. Clovis Smith, third; Patrick Dolan, foutlh; George Schuster, fifth ; Ernest Lajoie, sixth. The alternates were Gerald Clements and Bernard Voll. The Wabash-Indiana-Notre Dame triangle has been abandoned this year, while an arranged debate with Rochester University was cancelled by that school. The only contest to be staged this year is a triangular debate between Detroit College of Law, St. Viator ' s College and Notre Dame. St. Viator ' s will be met here by our affirmative team, while the negative supporters will travel to Detroit. ■ L 193 J Our Contributors lU RAY HUMPHREYS he editors of the 1915 Dome wish to make grateful acknowledgment of the invaluable assistance received from without their ranks. Much of the best work in the book has been contributed by men who could ill spare the time from more serious duties, and who were impelled to the labor by a disinterested love of Notre Dame, and a keen sympathy with the activities of her students. We are indebted to Rev. Father Charles L. O ' Donnell, himself the first Dome editor, for the beautiful quatrains in the Art Section. To three notable contributors to other Domes, Bernard Lang, Jacob Geiger and Morrison Conway, we owe sincerest thanks for much of the best of our art work. Others who have assisted in great degree, and have given liberally of talent, time, and patience, are Raymond Humphreys, William Henry, Rudolph Kelly, Pro- fessor Worden, Grover and Bernard Miller, Rev. John F. McShane, Eugene McBride, Timothy Galvin, James Riddle, Erich Defries, John Riley, Father Eugene Burke, John McShane, Casimer Krajewski and Columbus Conboy. To Mr. Humphreys we are especially indebted for work that required many hours a week, for almost nine months. His selection as Art Editor of the Dome that will succeed our own, is, we feel, a particularly happy one, and absolutely in- sures art work of superior quality and merit. To our hosts of other contributors, whose names do not appear herein, we are no less grateful. To all we make avowal of sincere gratitude. To any slight merit the 1915 Dome may possess, theirs is the prior claim. Without their assistance, many portions of the book, now honored by attentive perusal, must needs have been omitted. We claim unreservedly as our own, only that which is marred or defective. 196 en I 1 ■ ■ Junior Prom JUNE 3. 19 14 im -f . --eirlpWHi - r- -- 1 i .jf - ' tl issa " . m wSI M M . .- ' m H iVW« v ' .«m. ,j ' H BB[ ' iW».JM| P r " i ' n P H ' ' ll KFW 311 ■1 miftMr ' Sil COMMITTEE Mark L.

Riley 201 J The Senior Ball ' he cotillion and the " Prom " have their own particular places in the calendar of social affairs, but there is only one dance truly ordained for the man who is about to graduate. This, of course, is the Senior Ball. It is then that the Senior tries hardest to bring " that girl from home, " no matter how far she may live from Notre Dame. It is then that dress suits are resur- rected from the interior of gloomy wardrobes, and donned in conjunc- tion with tango shirts, kid gloves and all the other accoutrements of the man who goes out to splurge. The Class of 1915 enjoys a reputation for the exceeding merit of its terpsichorean endeavors. " Bob " and Mark are indefatigable laborers, they have the happy faculty of exacting actual endeavor from others, and every detail from programs to appointments is thoroughly attended to. The right girl, the right occasion, the right place — thus the tradition. And this year ' s affair, held in the Tapestry Ball Room of the Oliver Hotel, was no exception to this famous rule. The ball was delightful, as well as successful, in every particular. The only departure from precedent lay in the fact that no dinner preceded the dancing, but the dancers ate and drank fully and merrily throughout the evening. Beautifully gowned women and handsome men made a striking picture in the ball room and adjoining parlors filled with rare roses and the freshest and daintiest of spring flowers. The grand march was led by Robert Roach, president of the Class of 1915, with Miss Margaret Williams; and from its very beginning, the general wish was that the scheduled end could be several hours lengthened. Even the program accentuated the brilliancy of the occasion, for they were exceptionally artistic. The covers were done in etched copper of striking design, incorporating the school seal and class numerals. The interior pages each bore a quotation appropriate to the occasion. The committee ' s greeting to guests found fitting expression, " And once more I shower a welcome on ye, welcome all! " Many of those in attendance came from eastern states, and numbers of others from west of the Mis- sissippi. Seniors who comprised the committee were Mark L. Duncan, chairman, Albert A. Kuhle, Robert L. Roach, James E. Sanford and Thomas J. Shaughnessy. Patrons and patronesses for the ball included L 202 J Judge and Mrs. J. E. Howard, Professor and Mrs. G. A. Farabaugh, Pro- fessor and Mrs. K. B. Smith, Captain and Mrs. R. R. Stogsdall, and Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Harper. The " home waltz " saw, fully realized, the Senior ' s dream. And as each guest departed, carrying away a rose for memory ' s sake, he could not but feel in complete accord with the closing sentiment so well ex- pressed on his program: " To All, to each a fair good night, And pleasing dreams, and slumbers light. " L 203 ■ J STUDENT VAUDEVILLE DECEMBER 5, 1914 — mr Ihen the E. S. B. (of cannery fame) heard that the much-heralded student % ' «■ " voodeville " was to be postponed a week, there was raised a wild and LT yB concerted howl. When James Riddle, the blushing management, ex- I plained, however, that the delay was necessary in order that Eichenlaub might appear in a skit with his blonde roommate and companion in theatric iniquity, the furious protesters bowed to the inevitable. The necessary alteration of dates was engineered by David Belasco Riddle, chief factotum of the whole dramatic potpourri, with the same facile genius that assembled fifty-seven varieties of shrinking amateur talent. He labored indefatigably assembling em- bryo artists, with the result that 739 excellent acts had to be eliminated in favor of a mere ten or twelve. Everything " got by " somehow or other, fatalities being averted by a reception committee on contraband, who confiscated all malodorous cabbages, defunct felines, and antiquated eggs. The only fiasco of the evening ' s entertainment (sic) was the failure of the Kane-Wildman act to appear. The au- dience at the dress rehearsal voted it a regular " gosh-darn-it " affair, but the com- mittee decided that it was a trifle " high brow " for the local hay-feds ( not to say goo-feds), especially the biblical allusions, and Father McGinn was regretfully compelled to eliminate it. A modem dance act was also accorded the tinkling tin- ware, and frigid pedal extremities put the sad and salty kibosh on a good many more. Still there was an amplitude of endeavor. R. Pinkerton Cavanaugh, the song sleuth, was the sleuthiest looking songster that ever sanged a sing. Edward C. Ryan, America ' s foremost violinist, was like unto a second Kubelik. Robert Daly did unutterable things to several classical selections. Succeeding him came Edward Peter Mann, who captured first place and the glad simoleons with his dancing act. John Minavio (he of the gladsome smile and " your next customer " fame), having assembled all the musical instruments known to exist in the cosmic universe, did proceed to generate melody. The Hayes brothers (singers and dancers) Tipper- aried their way into transient fame. The " Beau Brummels of Vaudeville, " J. Urban Riley and E. Edwin Sexton by names, put on what many considered the cleverest sketch of the evening. At all events it was considerably better than much Orpheum stuff, and garnered second prize. J. Urban seems to be enveloped in the mantle of " Jimmy " Lynch and " Jimmy " Ryan of other days, and is probably the most finished performer at present attending Notre Dame. Welch, Hannon, Henehan, Burns and the Carmodys, " Art " and " Mike, " got a good " hand " with their string sextette. The old and new favorites L ' 206 1 received capable treatment at the hands and larynxes of these versatile music- makers. Finally (in order of appearance — far from such in ratio of merit) ap- peared the " Giants of the Gridiron. " Shoes — borrowed from downtown and lost with complications — pajamas, balcony scenes, et cetera, rendered their act strik- ingly unique. The act was typical of " Rupe " and " Eich. " It was flavored with local scenery and local allusions, and loomed large for the collateral. As a matter of fact, however, the boys didn ' t place. Vitagraph pictures of the Notre Dame- Carlisle game concluded the entertainment, and enabled the rooters to live over again the ecstacies of that great victory. As to the prizes. The Gridiron Giants de- manded it to pay for the footgear they had lost. M. Carmody put in a bill for five pounds of Piper Heidsick, and several local celebrities demanded same for mental anguish. We understand, however, that Mr. Riddle subsequently enjoyed a feed at the Oliver.

The Philopatrians are always eminently successful with these productions. This year witnessed an even greater success than did last year. The quality of the music, the elaborate and beautiful stage settings, the costumes and the talent dis- played, were all well ahead of the average amateur production, and quite worthy of a professional company. Mr. Earl S. Dickens, stage director, and Mr. Stephen E. Burns, musical director, both merited highest praise for having contributed in large measure to the success of the Philopatrian ' s Minstrel Performance. Among the individual players, those deserving of special mention are Charles Shannon, Walter J. Hebert, Almon Reading, Gast on Hebert and Lester Lloyd. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Dickens Musical Director — Stephen E. Burns Costumes by Chicago Costume Works " THE ROSAFkY " he customary President ' s Day play was this year staged as a com- pliment to the whole faculty. This slight change in a time-honored order of things elicited less protest than another kindred institu- tion — that of having " Faculty Day " mark the occasion of a few extra classes and additional written work. " The Rosary, " pro- duced for the occasion, called for a cast somewhat smaller than that of the ordinary cast of characters in similar productions for some years past. It was incidentally the first play to be coached at Notre Dame by Professor John Drury, of the Department of Elocution. Professor Drury, who established the precedent of having the coach play one of the more exacting roles, was par- ticularly fitted to the part of Father Kelly by virtue of the fact that he had been cast for the position in the original company. Mr. John O ' Donnell ' s in- itial appearance on the Notre Dame stage was a most auspicious one, his inter- pretation of the part of Bruce Wilton being eminently successful. Kenward Wright, as portrayed by John Urban Riley, was the most abjectly villainous of all deep-dyed and false-hearted villains. His vicissitudes developed the ex- treme folly of professional evil-doing, in a most convincing manner. J. Clovis Smith exhibited some degree of versatility by playing, with fair success, two different and diversified roles. Mr. Smith scored both as " Skeeter, " the pug- nacious, and as Lee Martin. Timothy Galvin as Charley Harrow was as con- vincing a character and as ardent a Lothario as ever trod the boards of Wash- ington Hall. Emmett Lenahan, playing the first female role he ever essayed, was also cast double, sometimes charming as Vera Wilton, and anon flooding the stage with the lachrymose weeps of the ill-starred Alice Marsh. Wilmer Finch scored a real hit as Lesura Watkins. The minor role of Kathleen Connor was enacted by Charles Edmonson. " The Rosary " hardly measures up to many other Notre Dame productions. It is a trifle too melodramatic, and this effect was accentuated by indifferent costuming. Miss Josephine Decker, contralto soloist of South Bend, sang " My Rosary " beautifully in the last act.

" The Girl of the Golden West " was selected as a vehicle for local dramatic talent, and the choice was something of a departure from the usual run of Senior pro- ductions. Gun play was as prominent as the same feature happened to be in a certain production of years bygone. But considerably more pow- der was consumed. In fact, this phase was so conspicuous that an en- thusiastic audience, long before the play was concluded, wished to get in on the gun play. " The Girl of the Golden West " was a charming opera. As a play, starring Blanche Bates, it was a distinct success. As a college production, it left something to be desired. Certainly the talent was excellent. Every individual in the caste acquitted himself well in- deed. Both performances were thorough successes. Some hundreds of visitors were present at the production Saturday evening, April 24, and an invitation performance was staged the following afternoon. Emmett Lenihan, as " The Girl, " was everything that the part de- manded, ran Cecil Birder a close second for cleverness of make-up, and rose to the most exacting situations. John Riley, playing the part of Dick Johnson, road agent, displayed remarkable talent and adaptability. Rupert Mills, as Jack Ranee, the sheriff, justified the expectations founded on the memory of former dramatic triumphs. Others who had important speaking roles and who exhibited more than ordinary versatility, were Erich Defries, as Sonora Slim, Harold Madden as Trinidad Joe, Joseph Gargon as Nick the bartender, Albert Kuhle as Ashby, and Vincent Mooney as Jose Castro. The costuming was elaborate — of its kind — and prosaic old Washington Hall took on the tone of a Wild West Show while rehearsals and performances were in progress. The preparation for " The Girl of the Golden West " was long and arduous, but the many pleasant afternoons forfeited to dramatic excellence were abundantly compensated for in the grand success achieved. ■ L 212 {■■■■■■■I SCENE FROM -GIRL OF GOLDEN WEST " THE CAST The Girl Emmett Lenihan Wockle, the Fox; Billy ' s squaw Knute Rockne Dicic Johnson, a stranger J.

The last student-laden Hill Street car has gone swaying and rattling down toward town. Si- lence descends upon the campus. The declining sun paints the rear windows of Walsh and Sorin and St. Joe with blazing splen- dor, and dust dances in bars of light flecking rooms that are strangely bare and empty. Long purple shadows creep eastward from Wash- ington hall, and lay timid blue fingers tentatively caressing, upon the barred doors of the deserted gymnasium. The image of the Church, cast across cam- pus grass, lengthens toward the bronze Christ, as if it solicited a blessing at the hands of Him who pronounced a benediction upon it, twenty centuries ago. The familiar paths are empty. No laughing group is congregated about the hall steps, or assembled under the genial maples or so mbre-hued pine. Sun- light, filtering through interstices of leaf and branch, paints queer golden patterns upon the grass. For all this green and gold glory, there is not one to heed or appreciate. Already trains are roaring through the murky suburbs of Chicago, bearing North and South and West, men who have gathered but this morning for their last meal together at Notre Dame. Other trains are careering through the dusk of the placid Ohio valley, bearing other men out into the varying fortunes of life in the hurrying East. Dusk falls over the lakes, and the last crimson splendor of a perfect sunset transforms St. Mary ' s clustered buildings into a fairyland of pearl and purple. Then night, and a melancholy whippoorwill calling at intervals in the grove by St. Joseph ' s lake. Gradually a silver light creeps through the gloom, and the moon paints newer glories upon tree and path and tower. Father Sorin, sentinel at the entrance, seems to peer more anxiously through the shimmering light, as if he fain would follow the fortunes of the men who are gone. Far through the pearl-dust glory of a true Hoosier moonlight night, the Dome shines resplendent. Save for the cry of a night bird, all is silence. It is the glorious interregnum of summer, between the cheerful greeting of the men who convene in the fall, and the last half-melancholy farewell of the men who do not return. L 264 J ADVENTURES IN IDIOCY. EPISODE No. 1 The Fable of the Half-Baked Thespian ■ sw L It so befell, in the salad days of the Rhubarbs, that a strange creature from the Wisconsin Wilds ambled calmly in and hung his hat upon the hook assigned to the great and exalted Jayclovis. And it was soon seen that the Wisconsin wop was like- wise a Jay, but not so christened. And when the infesters of the Rhubarbs desist- ed from their mystic dance of dawn and questioned with exceeding interest, the queer creature released into their turbulent midst. And answering them in mighty accents he i oared, " I am an actor, a teach- er, a barrister of repute and renown a stage director, a pugilist and numerous other things of even greater station. " And all who heard were greatly disturbed in their minds. But not so the barbarous tribes of the far Kharel Halle who saith in wrath, " That poor goop a teacher, nuh, he is but like unto the festive fruit that Leo- poldenious simulates to put in lemonade. " And so indeed it proved. As an instructor the tall youth from the North was a sad and dismal citrus of abject mien. And Schusterius, The Lancastrian, being taunt- ed about the Wisconsin confrere made hot retort, " Behold, he is of far distant tribes, nor is he a Teuton. I know him not. " And swallowing his adams-apple, he made off to kowtow before the renowned Poultry Good. And the red and succulent raws- berry bloomed again in Kharel confines, and when the great man from the Wiscon- sin wilds, he of the many callings, sought to stage direct the Charge of the Light Brigade, a wild and roaring mob assem- bled, shreiking that they might have the gentiles blood. And the gentile, depart- ing towards the Rhubarbs, smote Leni- hantius upon his rosy lips, and himself was smitten on the optic. And going forth he made a great war talk with the Rajah of the Mah Jestic, saying " Let me carry the flag, and I will speedily come to fame, even as the box ofRce cometh to fortune. " And the Rajah with his eye upon the glad- some simoleans exulted, saying " Here in- deed is a hick. " And the Wisconsin wop, not reckoning that he was also a hick, car- ried the gladsome banner, while the far orchestra ki-oodled " China Town " and the spectators applauded exceeding much, and the hick that was a wop as well as a citrus, was exceedingly joyous, that fifteen beau- teous damoselles should caper in his wake, apparelled in syncopated raiment, and hanging even unto the tails of his Prince Albert. And the orchestra ki-oodled, and the lissome beauties warbled and the Wis- consin wop made triumphant progress through the onyx columns of the far Mah 266 ress ■ Mah ■ r I Jestic. But in the Tower of Much Wis- dom, came sad mutterings, and many hem- morhages caused many Fords to rush from the City of Ready Friends. And it so be- fell that much tinware was annexed to the wop who was also a hick, and he departed hence, and no one mourned. No, not even Schusterius who spoke exultant, saying " Behold, were he a Teuton and a Lancas- train such e ' en now might not be, " and re- joicing he hied himself away to Paltry Fish. And the Thespian who was also a pugilist, and a barrister, as well as an expounder of learning, is remembered only as the wop who was also a hick. MORAL — If you expect to snag a de- gree in these parts, ease off on amateur nights. It ' s as fatal as dramatic criticism. u " Well, " says Sanford in Ethics, " I don ' t think you would be any more blameworthy for killing Bartholomew than for killing the cow. " Apologetic prof, (in asking economics class to summarize 500 pages in a sen- tence): " Really, this is so simple I am almost ashamed to ask it. " Lenihan ' s Freshman Masterpiece The rain was gently falling; As I stood near the door, 1 could hear the baby crawling, On the old log cabin floor. (Second Stanza) As I stepped near to watch her. She was standing on the bed. And when I quickly spoke to her. She fell off on her head. (Agonized sobs). (Third Hysteric) swiftly ran to pick her up; But Oh! poor babe was dead. And now I know she ' ll ne ' er again. Stand on another bed. FINIS Note brilliant conclusion. Ain ' t it the Truth? Lack of funds keeps many a fellow on the straight and narrow path. To be saintly is commendable, but it ' s blamed uninteresting. Doesn ' t it make you mad to think of a clever retort when it ' s too late to spring it? Plenty of men would have the ' Varsity cinched if their feet were as fast as their tongues. Why does a man who has just directed stranger to the postoffice always turn around to see if said stranger is going in the right direction? Have you noticed that the fellow who speaks of a " Cadillac 8 " as " some boat " is often the chap who drives the old grey mare down the main street of his home town. :d a I urn ' I Side head, to head: " Say, there ' s a fly in my soup. " Head: " Well, don ' t be bragging about it, or every guy on the table will be wanting one. " Horrors " O John, I ' ve received bad news from our son. " " What ' s the matter? More money, or is he going to be sent home? " " O dear me, it must be the environment; why did we ever let him go into Walsh Hall? " " Don ' t keep me in suspense. What ' s the matter? " " The poor boy is parting his hair in the middle. " Jesse, to the Belgian janitor: " Louis, if you wear green on St. Patrick ' s day, you might get a day off. " James: " Yep, but if you want to get a week off, Louis, just wear orange. " Ballad of Vespers We were crowded in the wardrobe. Not a soul would dare to speak. And we couldn ' t move a muscle. For we feared a board would creak. ' Tis a fearful thing, on Sunday, To be crowded ' gainst the wall, And hear your dear old prefect Come walking down the hall. So we shuddered there in silence. And stoutly held our breath. Then we heard our door-knob rattle. And we nearly died the death. And thus we sat in darkness. Each one busy with his prayers, " We are safe, " one softly whispered. As the prefect went downstairs. Then another fellow answered. From his refuge ' neath the bed; " Next time I ' ll go to vespers. And save my clothes, " he said. 268 J Adventures in Idiocy II. THE EPISODE OF THE EVANESCING ESCORT ■ as It so befell that a great and mighty Se- nior took up his abode at the Rhubarbs, but shortly after he of the hair tonic and puzzling name had trekked hence and unto Sorin. A strange conflict of man ' s word was here apparent. The latter fled the Rhu- barbs because of exceeding hilarity and mirth, that made hideous the day, and kept the coy and charming Mae awake far into hours of darkness. And the mighty Se- nior departed hence because he sought the silence and solitude of the studious Rhu- barbs, panting after the isolation thereof, as the heart panteth after the moist and liquid aqua. And a mighty change came upon the Senior, and he no longer looked up cases in the law but borrowed same from Britonius, who had obtained them from Walterious who had swiped them from the great Clementious who had done even such and so by the astute Stub- bonius Hyneserious. And the solitudes of the Rhubarbs seemea to conduce less greatly to scholarly effort than the great Senior had promised the Beloved of Allah that it would. Far less indeed. Redolent with Rhubarb atmosphere, he joined with gladsome heart in all unseemly levity, re- joicing with imholy glee at the mimic ca- nine fracas staged matutinally by the An- cient and Elusive Order of Whiffets, for the edification of the Knight of the Single Reference. He minded not the harrowing circumstances of 35 N. E. 135, prefering the unseemly and ungodly rejoicings of sundry debased Alley Rodents, who wot not of the Law. And whereas even the least complex of the mighty questions found him confused and mute, thirteen telephone numbers on each of two Talking Wires found him not at all abashed, nor reticent as to fulsome speech. And while Leni- hantius. The Lilting Lilacs Laughter, ar- riveth ever and always at eleven P. M. by the sundial, and even Cloventius, the Cos- mic Ego, at thirteen G. X. the mighty Se- nior ambleth not in ' till seventeen Q. K. And arriving, he talked vaguely of purple moons, and yearneth with exceeding ardor to sweep the walk and street car track. And Lenihantius of the Silver Larynx curseth with consuming woe, and seeth not the purple moon, but rudely and barbar- ously depriveth him of the broom where- with he whacketh at the walk in the early hours of the new day. And so it came to pass that the Mighty Senior stood in grandeur great and soli- tary, where many tracks convene, and many Beauteous Squabs arriveth and de- parteth incessantly, like star dust in the White and Lactic Way. And lo, our Mighty Senior who skiveth the Law that he may come and gaze Entranced, doth even so. And gazing, he seeth with eager eye, the Fairest of the Fair. She cometh from far countries and is from the Sorrowful Valley of the Third Partition, and boasteth the blood of the Tribe of Kosciusko. The Mighty Senior hath never heard of Kos- ciusko, but in the trifling matter of chic damsels he is like unto a dilletante and a connoisseur. And removing his thatch hatch, and smiling with Fearful Fatuity, he annexeth the sloe eyed damsel. And her chee k is like the Kalsomine and her breath is like the Perfume of the Garlic, and her hair is gold in streaks and she is exceeding fair. And she ambleth westward. And like the Victim of the Apple Episode of Other Days, he falleth for the Siren, and jour- neyeth westward languishing. And they came into the Vale of Little Italy, and trav erse the redolent stretches of Little Hun gary, and behold! they are in the Tribe of Kosciusko. And the men of the 269 -lun- m fribe I tribe ■ lU gaze fiercely upon the Mighty Senior. And the old women assemble to chatter volu- ble protest against the wanderer in strange lands. And the brats of the tribe shreik- eth unflattering comments and the young damosels simper and are abashed. And behold, a crowd gathereth and a mighty cry of voices is lifted up. The Mighty Se- nior is saddened. He is Madden-ed. He gazeth around among a chattering and hos- tile mob, and his hair standeth upon end. And the fair damsel desisteth from chat- tering in the tongue that soundeth as an ex- plosion in a seltzer factory, and murmureth crudely in the language of the Gentiles. " Fer-th ' lovuh-Mike beat it kid. Yer about due to get your head kicked off. " And the Mighty Senior hearing with awe and anguish, standeth not upon the ceremonials of departure. Lo, as he leaveth a brick arriveth, and it conketh him upon the con- crete of his Dome. And desisting not from his running, he yet raiseth up his voice in supplication, that the Police, the State Militia, the United States Navy and the great and pugnacious Elwardus, save him from the doom that loometh like a cloud. He arriveth spent and panting, at the soli- tude of the Lilacs. His hat hath been left with the rabble that raves in Rome. His lapels are redolent with the humble sachet and lowly garlic. His hair aboundeth with brick dust where the missiles of the fren- zied Tribe of Kosciusko hath disintegrated. And, again a great change is come upon him. Sedulously he seeketh the cases.

D. goolash, Softened by the touch of time. Rice and meat of ancient vintage, Garnered in a distant clime. Tell me not that in the City, Mike ' s or Katie ' s can prepare. Anything that looks so tempting. Any dish that tastes so rare. When in future years we wander, Far from grub of Notre Dame, And in gilded eating places. Sit and sip our rare champagne. Oft our truant mouths will water. For the grub we knew of yore, For that rare old, fair old, goolash That we ' ll slay, ah, never more. Ah, but let this jesting cease, Waiter do not bring it nigh. Have a heart, and in the kitchen. Waiter let that goolash lie. PRIZE BOOBS OF THE YEAR The benighted individual, who cuts out a section of an old hat, scallops the edges, sticks a feather in it and wears the thing around the campus. The chap who went chestnut hunting last fall, and hauled in a bushel of hedge ap- ples from off the St. Joe road. The Senior captain who yelled " whoa! " at his company, and wondered why they didn ' t stop. The young goshdinger who started for the " 3-1, " bound for a good time, missed connections, and spent Sunday afternoon wandering up and down the coal switch, wondering where the chickens were. The fellow who starts a " personal expe- rience story, " and winds up with some moss covered gag in vogue among the mound builders. The reputation for being a dispenser of caustic wit, clever anecdotes and snappy stories which is enjoyed by Mr. E. G. Lenihan, of the Lilacs, (late of the Red- path Circuit) having reached our ears, we requested him to turn out something for these pages. Mr. Lenihan assured us that he would be delighted, and after a few days work presented us with the following, which we now publish for the benefit of Dome readers: " One windy day, Jack Brit- ton and Bro. Matthias were walking across the campus, Jack wanted to smoke and didn ' t have a match, so he said, ' Brother, do you think it will rain tomorrow? ' And Bro. Matthias said, ' No, I don ' t think so. " YES, GEORGIE ' S CANDID Walters, arguing with Lenihan, makes characteristic retort: " - w, nuts! " Lenihan: " What does ' nuts ' mean? " Schuster, breaking in on conversation: " Why, that ' s what I am. " (Mad applause.) WE SHOULD HOPE NOT Usual table debate on merits of various states. Lenihan leads off: " Doggone it! I ' ve seen potatoes as big as my head, raised in Iowa. " Walters: " Undoubtedly. And equally hollow? " 271 _J Dear Brother: ' • " We the undersigned do humbly petition the removal of Mr. Burns from the head of our table.

Notable among recently organized Sci- entific societies is one destined to afford living and vital proof of the ultimate solid- ity of Professor Darwin ' s conclusions anent the descent of man. The members of this organization assert that as de- scenders, the Mayflower crowd and D. A. R. are the merest and most plebian of Neophytes, when contrasted with the per- sonnel of this new fraternity. As Grand Exponent Britten declared in his address of welcome, " We herein assembled have the edge on all other authorities on the Descent of Man. Not one among us but has descended farther and faster than any but the most scientific of minds can re- alize. The limit of our descent is not yet, but we are within hailing distance of the bottom, and still traveling with undiminish- ed speed. Darwin, watching us go by, evolved and enunciated his celebrated and much maligned Chimpanzee ancestry con- clusion. As great and scientific minds, we must, we shall and we do, aid and abet Professor Darwin. We offer no dusty tomes in proof. Just look at us gentle- men. Look at US, and doubt if you dare. " (Mad applause.) The business of the in- itial meeting, was the election of officers. The following slate was triumphant: Grand Exponent, George Britten; Peram- bulating Exponent, John Phibbs; Worthy Advisor, Petrus Yerns; Past Master, Rob- ert Herricks. Charter members: Ed. Norton, Haircut Sholem and Quick Sprint Durbin. Current Brightlight, " Checker- champ " Ferguson. Spiritual Advisers, Pinkerton Cavanaugh and Spoofigoof Walter. nor the wiles of the practical joker. Thus he came before those who loved a joke. And it came about that seeing him they rejoiced and were exceeding glad, for they said, " Lo, here is material for the winter games, for which we long have prayed. Let us approach and work upon this crea- ture. " And coming up they fall upon his neck and sprinkled with tears his Sunday shirt. And they said, " Knowest thou aught? " To which he answered " No. " Then taking him up, they bringeth him into the house, and beginneth thus, " Dost play- eth checkers? " And he said, " Of the game I wot but little. " " Thou hast the form of a champion. Sit ye here and try thy skill upon this man. " And Billimus, son of Fergus played with the man. But he, being one of their number, and in on the joke, allowed himself to be beaten. Likewise did another, and another, and great hilarity came over them. Then tak- ing Billimus upon their shoulders and making merry the jokers went forth, pro- claiming, " Lo, behold, a new champion is come! Ye seekers of fun gather near, for Herrick is champion no longer. " Then did the mad mob gather around and heap with praise Billimus, son of Fergus. And Billimus, son of Fergus, was great indeed. And other champions came to do battle with him. Many medals did they wear and great crowds came behind to cheer them on with senile shouts. But they of the medals winketh one to another saying, " It is a frame up. Let Billimus, son of Fer- gus, be the champ. For it is to laugh. " And poor Billimus was boobed and he knew it not, but his face beamed as the noon day sun, and his heart was happy. So he won the title and his name was on the lips of many. And to the boys on the farm he wrote, " For a country bum, I ' m going some, I ' m checker champion now. I ' m high mogul, Tibus the bull, the boys before me bow. " And to this day he is not wise. ■ In days of old it was, that there were gathered at the seat of learning beneath the Golden Dome, many of those who re- joice to boob a stranger. Wise they were, and sly as the serpent in the grass, and woe to the unwary who ventured among them. Thus, while the snow was yet upon the ground, and the midnight sun remaineth in the heavens, it happened that there strayed into camp, one, from the land of the squirrel and the hickory tree. His name was called Billimus, son of Fergus, and he knew not the ways of the world Eh yay ha-ha-ha-a! ! ! What makes the mad mob shriek and swear? What makes them rave and tear their hair?

YES, WE THINK SO One of Si Rudolph ' s friends said that if Si got the motorcycle at Adler ' s, he hoped it would have the same effect on him that Si had upon the entire student body. Si hasn ' t been able to figure out just what his friend meant. Jack Britton says that if the boys in his alley don ' t quit singing and making so much noise when he wants to study, he is going to complain to Brother Evaristus. Beware! Steve Burns. Our idea of a real student is the Senior lawyer who had to be directed to the Law Library last month. The Churubusco Truth recently featured the following statement on its front page: " Mr. Fred Figenstaffer of Sorin Hall, Notre Dame, visited here last week. Fred is a popular boy, and was received with open arms. " Father Lavin: " Who is Figen- staffer? " In the " Brain and Brawn " contest, held in Sorin some weeks ago, Wilmer Finch beat out Ray Kelley by two and a half points. Wilmer now sees the Olympic games ahead. Where is the benighted post-grad, from Kentucky who asked what the " Girl of The Golden West " meant by " a stocking full of pictures? " Walter, you ' re dis- owned. The Humorous (?) Department of the Dome, wishes to state that all references to Wildman, Phibbs, Yearns, and DeFries, have been studiously blue-penciled, when- ever possible, and all references to these persons are absolutely unauthorized by the Editor. Prof. Derrick says to tell the fellow who dropped the " Silver Edge " out of his pocket, while attending orchestra parctice one hot day, that if he will come around he will give him the bottle. One way of becoming popular is to buy a Chicago paper every morning, bring it to breakfast, and open out the sport-sheet. They ' ll pack around you forty-three deep. Eddie Marcus brought an alarm clock to History class the other day, but the Prof, set the alarm three hours ahead and Eddie missed supper. He says he ' s going to change his course. Wouldn ' t it make you sore if you at- tended every class in Code Pleading, and then flunked out because you lost your drag, when some hick who never saw the inside of the class room, showed up for the exam and got by? Our idea of a wonderful time is taking the nails out of your fire-escape window at 7:45 P. M. for a fellow who ' s afraid to take a chance at the front door. Bob Byrnes, our dignified classmate, has purchased a new set of books and is now outlining Col. Hoynes lectures on deport- ment. Bob is the outlineingest outliner we have ever seen. Over in Sorin, the race for the all floor pest aluminum washbowl, still continues. At last reports. Father McManus ' man, McShane, was leading by a scant majority, for second floor honors, while on the third, Britton and Schlipf were running neck and neck. Art Hayes says, that next to being elec- trocuted or dropped in the lake, the most disappointing thing in life is to write five hundred words of snappy stuff for the Dome, and then have the censor smear it with his blue pencil. Mr. Dummy Smith delivered a lecture before the students of the fresh air and gym course some weeks ago. His subject was " Chewman. " He was very good but some of the boys seemed to think Dummy didn ' t quite get at the point. 278 . but ■ that ■ Adventures in Idiocy III. THE EPISODE OF THE MISDIRECTED PICTURES A goodly trio, they that fared forth ad- venturing — Hanna, Linderman and Thomp- son. All sludgy was the Niles road, and the occasional cars did skid and sputter in the goo. But fairer scenes called, and far- ther afield went our goodly trio. At the four mile bridge they met them. Far be it from us — who have also " met " them in the same locality — to wax scarcastic over the trio ' s ready infatuation. Sachet Sadie was delectable in pale blue, and Misha- waka Mabel ' s cosmetical complexion was liekwise detectable in layers and striations. But Lizze — dear little languid Lizzie with her lilting laugh and tantalizing pout — well Lizzie as we were about to say when interrupted, Lizzie had the camera. In the presence of an anastigmat lens and sen- sitized gelatine, young man ' s fancy turns ipso facto, to thoughts of snapshots. It is immaterial who made the suggestion — that is, none of the goodly trio reproached each other until the post mortem incident — the fact is that they posed for languid little Lizzie with her lilting — Oh all right, we were going to quit anyhow. Anyhow they posed and Lizzie did the Sarony stunt for the other five. Then someone else offi- ciated, and Lizzie ' s languid smile figured on the next plate with the sachet and cos- metics and manly expressions. It was all to perfectly awfully congenial for anything. Then they posed again. It was hard to climb some of the trees, and harder to balance atop some of the fences, but with suggestions from Sadie, and admonitions from Mabel and encouragement from Liz- zie, the languid, it was done. And then the dear young things volunteered to send out some of the pictures. Addresses??!! Lind — nix! No really sophisticated guy ever gives his right name. Hann — certainly not, Ezekiel. We weren ' t born yesterday either! Thorn — far be it from thuslyl Why not Bob? Yes, Bob would do. So to Kobert they directed the permanent rec- ord of a most interesting afternoon. And to Robert they (the pictures) came. The Prefect was mildly interested, but the Jinx that should have been on the job was over watching the ' Varsity practice, and the sweet scented missive suffered no censor- ial delection. Bob was successively amazed, amused and inspired. He care- fully secreted the pictures, and fell upon the metaphorical necks of the trio. Why, Oh why indeed, " quoth Bob, " have you undone me? I am ruined. You are ruined. We are all ruined. The goose is cooked, the game is gummed, the ap- proach is foozled, disaster reigns supreme. Cataclysmic calamity claims us for its own. " The goodly trio gazed. They thought. They got hep. They comprehended. They turned a pale green about the gills. " The snapshots — " they faltered. Then they stopped. Each gulped his Adam ' s apple nine times before proceeding. " He — HE — HE got it????? " Bob was overcome by emotion. He averted his face and nodded mutely. The goodly trio receded by degrees into their military shirts, gibbering with ter- ror. They moaned and shreiked and gnashed their teeth. Ye gods!!! Sachet Sadie — Languid Lizzie — trees, fences, poses, addresses — fake names. Oh hete- rogeneity of adverse circumstances. Oh concatenation of woes unutterable — Oh cosmic disaster unparallelled! Are they still gnashing their frenzied bi-cuspids? We know not. Have we the pictures herein? If so, we welcome the laurel. If not, we — with you — anathemize our Art Depart- ment. ACCORDING TO CLOVIS SMITH " It is rumored that George Shuster writes his jokes on tissue paper in order that the editor may see through them. " " Lenihan goes to bed with his watch un- der his pillow so he can sleep over time. " HEARD AMONG THE MEDICS Freshman Biologist: " Say you, what ' s the umbillicus? " Sophomore: " Don ' t ask me, I don ' t know anything about chemistry. " History Prof., giving exam: " I am a firm believer in the honor system, and shall expect you young gentlemen to exercise the utmost good faith with me in writing your examination. For the sake of con- venience I would suggest that each of you should sit a few seats apart, you will then not interfere with the work of the others. Also in order that they may not be in your way, it would perhaps be better if the books in the class were collected and de- posited on my desk. I feel the need of a little exercise, so while the examination is in progress I shall stroll about the room for a time. You may begin to write. 279 J Oh! the Freshman needs his trouncin ' So he ' s better off in Brownson, And the young aspirin ' Soph ' more better cling to Corby ' s walls.

You surely know the liability of the common carrier, — this par- ticular instance, don ' t you, Mr. Britton? " Britt: " I didn ' t get the question. Judge. (Come on Sully, talk louder, he can ' t hear you.) " Judge: " The liability of a common car- rier in this particular case? " Sully (in undertone): " Tell him that the authorities are not entirely harmonious on the subject. " Britt: " The authorities are not entirely melodious on this subject. Judge. " Judge: " I don ' t think you are very well versed on the subject, Mr. Britton. " Britt: " No, Judge, I didn ' t get quite that far. " Judge: " Get that far? Why this is review work. You should know something about it. Another case. Suppose you did some work on the Oliver Hotel, and the company goes bankrupt; what would you do to secure your payment? " Sully (in undertone): " File a mechan- ic ' s lien. " Britt: " File a McCamic ' s lean. " (Heard from the front row): " Question there. Judge. As I understand the case, the man is bankrupt. Morally speaking, does a man who has been insolvent have to satisfy the mechanic ' s lien if he again gets money enough to pay the debt? " Judge: " How about you, Mr. Henry? Would that irk your conscience? " Henry: " Well, it looks like there might be some injustice there. " Judge: " What do you think about that. Mr. Ryan? " C. L. Ryan: " Well, the common law theory on that seems to be that the me- chanic ' s lien is prior to all liability. " Judge: " But Mr. Britton, does the Statute of Limitations apply here? " Britt: " Yes, Judge, I don ' t think so. " Judge: " Mr. Stack, supposing a man came to you with this case. What would you do? " Stack: " I ' d tell him I would consider the matter; tell him to call tomorrow and charge him for two visits. " Judge: " No class tomorrow boys, I won ' t be able to be out here.

" 280 lewed I Adventures in Idiocy EPISODE No. IV. THE FABLE OF THE FAINTING EQUUS L It was an exceedingly warm day. The grass, the flowers and the trees looked dry and dusty. The Mortifying Puzzle was hot. So was the After Dinner Orator. So was the Silver Tongued Breenster. " We must, " said the Mortifying Puzzle, " have an abatement of aridity. " " Even so, " said the Breenster, " let us hither unto soda water. " " I do admire the gloden glow — er — of — root beer, " coyly conceded the After Dinner Orator. Then hove in view a prefect, driving that same equine entity that ambled into the Ark with Noah. " Wouldst borrow for brief joy ride? ' " he queried genially. The trio wouldst. Fur- thermore and incidentally, they didst. " Eastward, " hissed the A. D. O. at the fire hall, " I know where furtive lurks a golden — lemon phosphate. " And through alleys and byways, through crooked and devious passages, they arrived even thereat. " Through the grocery channel first, " said the S. T. Breenster, " it may be that I would have of cabbages. " But he pre- varicated greatlv therein, dong no more than use the side door into the abode of golden glowing Orangeade. And arriving within, they placed their starboard pedal extremeties upon the brass support pro- vided, and murmured low and eager. " That which glows goldenly. " And while they exulted with much abandon therein, the nag that had fraternized with Noah, felt grieved in all his being, that he had been an instrument for the villanious sale of soda water. And forthwith, grieving much, he lay him down in the traces to die. And the neighborhood youth and old women waxed excited, and rushed into the room proclaiming that all is woe and uncertainty. And the trio rushed forth with loud lamen- tations saying, " Woe is us. He dies, we get the tinware. Yet if he liveth the har- ness is broken, we carry him home and get the hook. " So they pulled and hauled and kicked the nag exceeding much. And the nag groaned and the trio sobbed and the neighborhood exulted. And the nag de- sisted from dying, and they pushed the buggy home, leading him most tenderly. And the Mortifying Puzzle broke his vatch, and the Silver Tongued Breenster lost his hat, and the thatch on the dome of the After Dinner Orator lost eight more hairs, reducing the number to seventeen. And never again went they forth with 281 VIC M en. I lith I steeds for soda water that glows golden and inviting. But rather do they sneak afoot and alone, for each man sayeth, " Behold, these other poor boobs are jinks and Jonahs. " MORAL — Even the prefect ' s nag knows a thing or two about red tape. L THE FABLE OF THE DANCING MAS- TER WHO LOST HIS GRIP Once upon a time there was a colleger who lived in a nutorium along with other collegers. This colleger was some boy, and his helpmates and co-workers knew him as Moonlight Beh. Moonlight was a society man and could outfuss any lady killer in the shack, from the subway tough guys, to aesthetic Myron of the third floor back. All the ladies went his way and when he spread himself with the latest in celluloids, top-boots and cor- duroys, and took a turn down the Main Drag, every female ribbon and soap-clerk in town had to be shackled down to her job. Once the tribe on his reservation decided to take a night off and fling a huge dance orgy, and old Moonlight was Lord High Potentate and Ringside Director of the whole proceeding. What he didn ' t know about the gay terpsichorean twirl was nil. He hung out his shingle, and the farmer lads who had not mastered the latest in toe dancing were invited to call. The boys flocked to him like Lenihan and Figles- tahler to the La Salle when the moral movies come to town. As instructor in the light fantastic art, he had Kowalski and Jack Coker washed out and hung up to dry. Serious minded seekers after knowledge and culture caught cold by kicking off the blankets when they did the Fox-Trot in their dreams, and pre- fects went mad. " Latest steps guaranteed in one lesson, proficiency certificates given out at the end of the course. " That was the worm that caught the dill pickle, and he got away with it as big as seven hundred dollars. The festive night arrived. Strong boxes were jimmied and great gobs of dollars made a lively get-away. College lads were dolled up in their best (friend ' s) pair of silk SOX, Woolworth queens paraded, drap- ed in the latest creations from Paris (Ky.), and Moonlight Beh was king of the Katy- dids. The rah-rah boys and the needle and pin, post-card and china-ware ladies, rock- ed and rolled in their new non-skids, the gay revel went on and the parting drew near. But the end was not yet. Fate had set it down in her loose-leaf (Byrnes Note- Book System) that the mighty should be humbled, and Moonlight Beh was to be it. The orchestra leader woke the trap- drummer and slipped out for a shot in the arm, and the Maxixe was on. It was new to the boys, as the Professor hadn ' t posted them, so they stopped, looked and listened. But Moonlight Beh saw a chance to smear himself with glory. He grabbed his girl and loped out onto the waxy waves. Well, it was like " the last drink that got poor Charlie. " The orchestra was off on a tangent. Moonlight ' s mental equilibrum missed a few strokes, his feet obstruc ted his passage, he got all fussed, but the spot- light still pursued him. The first round was pitiful, he lost a suspender in the sec- ond, and went down for the count in the third. He couldn ' t get away with it, he knew it, and he broke for the river while the whole gang gave him the merry rawz. Moonlight Beh is now the proprietor of a blighted career, and to breathe " Soph. Dance " or " Maxixe " in his presence, is to court an exhibition of rabies. MORAL — All of which goes to show that you never can tell by the way they hit in practice.

To them, in a large measure indeed, is due the credit for what- ever success we may have achieved. By facilitating our work, they have been indirect factors in creating such slight excellence as we may claim for the Nineteen Fifteen " Dome " . ■ L 284 J DVERTISEeS- ¥1- L ■ J COURTESY OF Mr. Charles A. Ford • 286 Needs of Notre Dame ••«- «i »« ' 0!ij y!? f «r «ia:i§ u i . r -diff}isfi " i 0 ' f i ' DUTY of loyalty incumbent on every student and alumnus is to dissipate the curious superstition that our Alma Mater is wealthy enough to develop unassisted, and that endowments are not urgently needed. The fact, as we are authoritatively as- sured, is that when current expenses are paid at the end of the year, there remain only a few thou- sand dollars for repairs and expansion. The cost of maintaining the University amounts to almost eight hundred dollars a day, and to meet these expenses there are no resources except the students ' fees. There exist four endowed scholarships and with the income derived from these, four students are educated. The University holds the title to much unimproved land, but that is an incumbrance, rather than an asset. Here are a few things that Notre Dame needs urgently and immediately : A library building to cost $150,000. Two new dormitory buildings at a cost of $60,000 each. A fund for the purchase of books for the library. A fund for the education of clever and deserving boys who cannot afford a higher education. A fund to provide special lectures by men distinguished in all the walks of life. These are a few of the immediate needs of the University; expansion will multiply these needs in proportion. Let the alumni start a ball rolling. Make up your mind just which of these needs you would best like to supply. If you cannot give $100,000, give $1,000. If not so much as that, send $250 for the purchase of equipment in the laboratory in which you are most interested. A plan is now under advisement for the creation of a special board composed of laymen to administer all moneys contrib- uted to the University. 287 o z : o 5 -1 p c bil C3 O £ (D xl ' OiD a 1 O f! ■ i-j % o U z 1 c» Crt 5 U i ci Q rS a: ® H M C O z • H ci c :) be e ' 3 be e H w o H Z 41 1-3 an V Oi t S O u Of 3 O O H u z u S » « U M H o E s o e es t« o o B as u ■a c CS be o ' S a ■3 •a O 99 U U e s o H Z O) V5 2i 9i SI •a •a s be o u ' ■5 e 288 II Above All and Everything We Place Your Satisfaction THE THINGS WE REQUIRE OF OURSELVES ARE.

GARCIA AND VEGA The Cigar of Quality The Garcia and Vega long ago became our leader in the better brands of better cigars. It appealed to us and we found it appealed to our trade, hence we adopted it. This cigar has proved its value in its goodness, its stability and its continuation to win over smokers who demand a good smoke. The Garcia and Vega is a clear Havana Tampa-made product. It is blended down to that nicety that pleases the particular smoker. It is the quality of the Garcia and Vega that fascinates.

JOSEPH VALLEY offers more opportunites and better facilities to the large and small manufacturing concerns, than any other section of the country. Our older industries have expanded and new ones have been established year after year, but there never has been anything even suggestive of over development. TODAY ONLY A SMALL PART OF THE VALLEY ' S MANUFACTURING FACIL- ITIES HAVE BEEN UTILIZED. There are dozens of factory sites as desirable as any of those now occupied, trans- portation facilities are within reach of all, and these will be improved or extended as the demand for them increases. There is a wealth of skilled labor of the most desirable type. Last but not least, the Valley has a power service that is efficient, dependable and inexpen- sive. Indeed it is the power service which is the greatest boom to the Valley ' s industries. In all important considerations, it is probably superior to any other in Indiana or Michigan.

To complete it you must have the well-balanced type page, with emphasis given where it is needed, the thought properly shaded, thus aiding the reader to get the whole story. For this important work you must depend on your printer, and just to the extent that your printer is a master of his work will your effort to present a complete story to your readers be a success.
