A v^ ^ " ffihg (gfaxetttg gome " ^ of scientific and go-as-you-please football and no player has given more to Notre Dame than " Maddy. " As he inspired the varsity for three years on many fields he will be retained to instruct the new men in the " never-say-die " spirit which he typified. Madigan, Notre Dame ' s tribute of gratitude for vour services is endless. " LITTLE DUTCH " BERGMAN, the second, but not the last of his clan, we hope, is through. " Dutch " was light and small for the work he did. Many times injuries kept him out of big games which surely would have assured him of nation-wide recognition. A page would not hold a complete account of " Dutch ' s " deeds. Single-handed, almost he has de- ' feated our rivals the Army and Nebraska. He was a " marked " man in every game and suffered injuries accordingly. This phantom " will-o ' -the wisp " diminutive half, our " Flying Dutchman, " will never be forgotten. No football man was ever more popularly respected and admired by the faculty and students than he. Here ' s to " Little Dutch " Bergman, the gamest " big little man, " the most memorable of the 1919 " Fighting Irish. " " WALLY " MILLER is another of a name and family justly famed in Notre Dame gridiron history. Only one feature betrays Wally ' s " raring to go and tear ' em up ' ' temper- ament, — only the square " battleship " chin of his beautiful blonde cherubic countenance is the tell-tale. Walter ' s All-American qualities did not end with his good looks. That chin be- tokened " fight " and therefore he did. With eyes glistening, teeth clinched, " Sonofabuck " on his lips and head low for a line plunge Walter was invincible. At fullback this year Miller proved the life of the defense in bis tackling. On the offense his punting and con- sistent plunges for gains are deeds we all know. Walter Reilly Miller is the second brilliant football ideal contributed by the Defiance, Ohio, Millers. " FRITZ " SLACKFORD returned from his war service experiences bigger and better than ever. This year was Slackford ' s big year. The old injury " jinx " was a trifle more lenient than usual and the big blonde back registered success every start he made. Most notable of his deeds is his stunt of taking the ball for seven or eight successive downs on line plunges for a total of fifty or sixty yards. Nineteen-nineteen was a big year on defense for Fritz. It was he who blocked the onrusbing frenzied Army backs when it seemed as if they could not be stopped and it was Fritz who bowled them over as they rushed in to block " Cy " Degree ' s punts in our own territory. We wish we had him for another year. " GROVE " MALONE of La Salle. Illinois, has been one of the most versatile back- field men developed under the regime of Harper and Rockne. Few backs have worked as hard, with the consistent determination to make good, as has the former central Illinois scholastic star. Facing the stiff est kind of opposition every year he has been out, Grover has succeeded in getting thru his share of work regardless of injury " jinxes " and a host of enemy tacklers. His work has been phenomenal on numerous occasions and this year in the early battles he bade fair to outdo his previous efforts. His ability to skirt the ends or plunge thru stonewall defenses made him an invaluable squad man. We are sorry injuries kept him from bigger opportunities to prove his worth which we all well know.
