TVTOTRE DAME ' S Father John Cavanaugh has that quality of ability mixed with an easy-going smiling attitude that seems to give everyone his confidence. One of the great inspirations behind the Notre Dame Foundation, Father John still finds time to pour over a crossword puzzle with a student while waiting in the Badin Hall barber shop. The University has enjoyed great expansion during Father Cavanaugh ' s tenure of office. Under his guidance a building program has been undertaken which will make Notre Dame an even greater school and which will make students and alumni even more grateful to Father John. He won their hearts as Prefect of Religion and he has never forgotten that the school is made up of individuals and has retained his same interest as president. Page 18 Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C. Executive Vice President the Vice Presidents ON JULY 16, 1949, the Reverend Thomas A. Steiner, C.S.C., provincial of the Indiana Province, of the Priests of Holy Cross, announced the creation of four new vice presidential positions at the University of Notre Dame. Under the new administrative organization at Notre Dame, the University will have five vice presidents, each having specific duties. Previously there had only been one vice president, but with the greatly expanding duties of the administration, the new organization became a necessity. Father Steiner, who announced the new vice presidencies in conjunction with the 1949 obedi ' encies for priests and brothers of the province, also announced that the Reverend John J. Cavanaugh, C.S.C., president since 1946, had been renamed president for three more years. The names of the new vice presidents and their duties are as follows: Reverend Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C. was named as executive vice president of Notre Dame. Father Hesburgh formerly was head of the De- partment of Religion. Reverend Howard Kenna, C.S.C., formerly di- rector of studies, was appointed vice president in charge of academic affairs. Rev. Joseph A. Kehoe, C.S.C. Vice President in Charge of Student Affairs Rev. Howard J. Kenna, C.S.C. Vice President in Charge of Academic Affairs Rev. John E. Murphy, C.S.C. Vice President in Charge of Public Relations Rev. John J. Burke, C.S.C. Vice President in Charge of Business Affairs Reverend Joseph A. Kehoe, C.S.C., was named vice president in charge of student welfare. Father Kehoe formerly held the position of director of student welfare. Reverend John H. Murphy, C.S.C., was named vice president in charge of public relations. Father Murphy has served as vice president for the past three years. Reverend John J. Burke, C.S.C., was appointed by Father Steiner to the post of vice president in charge of business affairs. Father Burke previously held the position of business manager of the University. Reverend James J. Leahy, C.S.C., who, during the latter part of World War II, was administrative assistant to the president of Notre Dame, was ap- pointed assistant to the vice president in charge of student welfare. He replaces the Reverend Joseph D. Barry, C.S.C., who was assigned to vocational work at Holy Cross Seminary on the Notre Dame campus. So it seems that the fame of the name of Notre Dame no longer resides in just the fields of arts, sciences and athletics but now has been indelibly etched in the functions of organizational structure.

Supervisor of Maintenance HE men behind the scenes in a play are the men who arrange the sets, see to it that everything is in order, that the actors have the proper props and that the curtain goes up on time. They never are seen, but are taken for granted. Perhaps someday an audience will call for the men- behind-the-scenes to take a curtain call, as well as the author and actors of a play they have seen. We have our men behind the scenes at Notre Dame, too. They are seldom rec- ognized and even less frequently credited. Perhaps the reason for this is that the " curtain " always does go up on time, and we, the actors, always have our props and the scenes are so well set. This is in the way of a curtain call, then; and our applause, though inaudible, is nonetheless sincere. Rev. John J. Reddington, C.S.C. Purchasing Agent Bro. Albinus Murphy Cashier William J.

Arthur Haley, director of public relations; James E. Armstrong, alumni secretary and Foundation vice chairman; John B. Kanaley, Foundation co-chairman in New York City; and Herman Zitt, Foundation office staff. I RGANIZED two years ago the University of Notre Dame Foundation achieved an enviable mark in the educational fund-raising field, for 1949, by attaining a record-breaking $1,924,541.67 from 8,675 alumni and non- alumni friends. In addition $407,305.10 was received for fellowships and grants from industry and government, as well as equipment valued at $84,800. The 8,675 donors to Notre Dame in 1949 was the largest number of benefactors ever to contribute during a single year in the University ' s history. The immediate objective of the Foundation ' s program is a new $1,700,000 Science Building of which more than half of the necessary funds have already been given. Notre Dame has made considerable progress in scientific research which includes experimentation in the following subjects: the Rh factor, anti-malarial drugs, synthetic rubber, plastics, tuberculosis, heart disease and cancer. The new structure will relieve over-crowded conditions existing in the present outmoded building and also provide the most modern facilities for classroom work and research. Included among outstanding gifts received in 1949 were $1,000,000 from Mrs. Fred J. Fisher for a student residence hall and loan fund; $100,000 from I. A. O ' Shaughnessy for the Fine Arts Foundation; $69,000 from the Rockefeller Foundation to be used in the study of international affairs; an electrostatic generator (atom smasher) valued at $59,000 from the Atomic Energy Commission; $40,000 from the William J. Corbett estate; $3 1,000 from the Michael P. Grace Trust; $25,000 from the Kresge Foundation for a room in the proposed Science Building, and $25,000 from the Damon Runyon Memorial Cancer Fund. The University of Notre Dame Foundation was estab- lished in 1947 to record all incoming gifts and devise means of obtaining financial help, to assist in furthering the prestige of Notre Dame and to encourage enrollment of properly qualified students. At the present time chairmen and com- mittees have been functioning in 225 cities throughout the United States. Many non-alumni friends have generously contributed their efforts with loyal alumni in advancing the interests of the Foundation Program. Included in the total amount and number participating were 1158 non- alumni friends who gave $1,418,310 during the past year. Notre Dame is seeking $25,000,000 in a long range pro- gram to provide physical expansion, increased facilities for research and additional scholarships and fellowships. Rev. Philip S. Moore, C.S.C. Dean Graduate School . . . HPHE LIMITATIONS of the American college began to be recognized just about one hundred years ago, and within the century the graduate school has been introduced into our educational system, to form with the college the American university. To mature students it offers specialized study and training in research which lead to profound and finished scholarship. Its primary functions are advanced instruction and research creative, productive scholarship which adds to the store of human knowledges. To these may be joined the function of the dissemination of knowl- edge through publications in learned journals and in monographs, and through the prudent use of all modern means of communication. Ideally, the graduate school pursues its search for truth in theology, philosophy, the arts, the sciences, liter- ature in all fields of human learning untram- melled by pragmatic objectives. At Notre Dame, the Graduate School was estab- lished in 1921. Development was slow the first ten years only one doctoral program in Chemistry having been introduced (1928); much more rapid since the early ' 30s. Today eleven departments offer the doctorate and twenty-two the master ' s degree. These departments fall into four divisions: Arts and Letters, Social Science, Science and Engi- neering. Outside the departmental organization there are Lobund in which new techniques and new approaches to fundamental biological problems have been developed, and the Mediaeval Institute. In creating man to His own image, God ' s highest endowment of man is mind or intellect. As educa- tional institution, the graduate school develops the Christian man by perfecting in him this highest endowment in conformity with truth. At Notre Dame the Graduate School performs this noble work in a supernatural and natural environment in which the students can foster their religious life and strengthen their moral characters. Page 26 Colleges Faculty and Seniors Rev. Francis P. Cavanaugh, C.S.C. Dean College of Arts and Letters HPHE College of Arts and Letters began with the foundation - of Notre Dame in 1842, and its traditional program for a liberal education was the only one offered in the University until 1865. In that year a department of science was established for students who wished to prepare for specialization in scien- tific fields, four years later a department of law was formed to train students for the legal profession, in succeeding years additional departments were added. Ultimately the depart- ments were organized into independent colleges as we know them today. But the College of Arts and Letters continued to offer its liberal and cultural program. The aim of the College of Arts and Letters is to develop intellectual excellence for living, not skills for making a living. For only the man who thinks and thinks rightly will be able to solve his problems and live the highest human life properly adjusted to the natural world of things, to the social world of men and institutions, and to the spiritual world of the soul and God. Hence the student learns something of physical science, more of the social sciences, history, language and literature; philosophy shows him relationships and values, and religion crowns it all. No segment of the circle of knowl- edge can be omitted by the liberally educated Christian. The work of instruction within the College of Arts and Letters is shared by fifteen departments. In his last two years, while continuing his broad education, the student concentrates on a field of his choice to the extent of pursuing twenty-four hours of course work under the supervision of one department. Here also the aim is to train men to think and to give them the tools principles and facts to think with. For only one who thinks broadly and deeply is truly an educated man. - " V ( - _ ,a- Fr.

College of Science . . . HP HE College of Science was established as a distinct unit of the University in 1865. From time to time, as facilities improved, specialized programs were added to the general science program. At the present time, the degree of Bachelor of Science in Botany, in Zoology, in Chemistry, in Mathematics, in Physics, and in Geology, are awarded, as well as the Bachelor of Science degree, for which the student completes a program of science courses selected from all departments in the College. The largest group in the College of Science is made up of preprofessional students, those planning to enter medicine and dentistry and allied professions, and law. The Department of Physics and Mathematics are housed in Science Hertl, along with the Science Museum, the Science Library, and the research quarters for the two departments; Chemistry Hall and the Annex, Chemical Engineering, serve the large number of students in the University who elect to take courses in chemistry; the space in this building is aug- mented by the old post-office which was moved to the rear of Chemistry Hall to serve as a library. The Biology Building houses the divisions of Botany and Zoology and a portion of the Laboratories of Bacteriology. New quarters for the Geology Department, the newest division in the College, have been provided in the Administration Building. All groups in the College of Science are anxiously awaiting the erection of the new Science Building which will augment the present over- crowded classroom and laboratory facilities in Science Hall ,ind Chemistry Hall. The aim of the College of Science is to provide well-trained Christian gentlemen who are fully cognizant of their respon- sibilities in a science-conscious world where moral values and ethical codes must govern the dissemination and utilization of scientific discoveries by all nations. o Page 60 Robert J.

YN THIS day of atomic energy, supersonic missiles and television broadcasts, technical education has become in- creasingly important in the life of the Nation and attractive to America ' s youth. Notre Dame, the first among the Catholic institutions in America to offer degree courses in Engineering has accepted the challenge, and has developed its College of Engineering into a school which vies with the best in curricula, teaching staff, student body and equipment. The fields of specialization are: Architecture, Metallurgy, and Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical and Aeronautical Engineering. This broad coverage gives ample opportunity to the student to pursue studies which appeal to him and for which he is best qualified. However, the College offers something more than is offered by most high-class technical institutions. Devotion to duty, hard work and service to one ' s fellow man is the common heritage of all engineers, and is imbued in the minds of students in all technical schools. But the College of Engineering of Notre Dame stands flatly for the best in technical education as a gift of God to mankind, not to be abused and mishandled by godless and mischievous men for their own selfish ends. We are educating our embryo-engineers in this spirit. We want them to go out into the world, conscious that as future leaders of industry, it is their duty to serve as a check on those men who aim to make the machine supreme and man just another cog in this machine. From this building come some of the finest engineers in the country. A group of happy architects caught between projects. HUGH P.

Notre Dame ' s Law Building home of the oldest Catholic Law School in the country. College of Law . . . ' HE Notre Dame College of Law is the oldest Catholic law school in the United States. Its work began in 1869 with the establishment of a comprehensive course in law as JL part of the curriculum of the University. The College is approved by both accrediting associations, and offers courses of instruction designed to qualify students for the practice of law in all states of the union. But we have never felt that it was sufficient for us to meet required and prevailing standards. To fully appreciate our legal and constitutional system, one must study it in its religious perspective. Stripped of its moral matrix, our system of law and government is demonstrably inferior to almost any other system on earth. Law schools con- sequently, are impressed with a grave responsibility to God and Country. Here we sense that responsibility very deeply. Our interest goes beyond mere " academic freedom. " We are interested in " American freedom " as that institution was described in our Declaration of Independence and vindicated in our glorious history. While he pursues a modern and practical course of study, every Notre Dame law student learns to appreciate the close alignment of American constitution- alism with the principles of religion and morality.

McCarthy Dean Prof. Brooks Smeeton conducts an advertising class. College of Commerce . . . HP HE educational concepts to which Notre Dame and we in the College of Commerce are committed are ever so simple. They do not lend themselves to distortion or misrepresentation. The first concept is that man is a creature created by God and destined to he reunited with his Maker, provided he observes God ' s injunctions while he lives on this earth. Those injunctions, in turn, are simple, understandable, and accepted by every decent, well-intentioned man. They ar e the basis of man ' s humanity to his fellow-man: they are the urgings to decency, honesty, kindness, temperance, charity and forgive- ness that should characterize one man ' s relationship with every man. They are the urgings to so live today that we may be worthy of the hereafter that has been promised us. While admitting to anxious deliberation regarding futures, cold intelligence gives us an awareness that we must prove all things and hold on to that which is good. Succinctly stated, this is the hard core, the central task, to which we are com- mitted at Notre Dame. Undramatically stated, our job in the College of Commerce is to take the courses that are basic in a Liberal Arts program, by that I mean, Religion, Philosophy, English and History, and to augment them with courses of practical nature so the student will have and can be a good apologist for the essentials of successful Christian living and demonstrably, a leader by reason of his specialized knowledge in defined areas of business. Though it is sometimes affectionately referred to as the yacht club because of the mysterious model sailing vessel on the roof, it more than does its share in producing captains of industry.

INDIANA Varsity Football Monogram Club Varsity Baseball The 1950 DOME AWA R D S TDACH year the traditional award of the Dome key is made to those men of the Senior class who have been selected for this singular honor on the basis of intellectual achievement, contribution to the student body and the University, and the embodiment in them of the ideals of moral, responsible leadership. It is an award for service to God, Country and Notre Dame, as evidenced through- out their respective college careers. This award is not merely a pat on the back for these men, but is a recognition of their efforts to improve themselves and all organizations with which they were connected. On the following pages are the men selected as recipi- ents of this year ' s Dome awards. The Committee THOMAS CARROLL Secretary, the Junior Class WALTER CLEMENTS Manafiaf Editor, the Dome WILLIAM KIRCHNER President, the Student Council DENNIS O ' NEILL Editor, the l i,m - WILLIAM RICH y. c. s. KENNETH THOREN fvsmiVj c Editor, the Scholastic ROBERT WILLIAMS Football RAY YANICS President, the Junior Clans Page 128 Edmund G. Farrell Ed, as chairman of the Blue Circle, found himself a busy man throughout the year. However, this campus leader found time to be an active member of the Student Council, act as chairman of the successful Mardi Gras Carnival, and get himself elected as a delegate to the N.F.C.C.S. convention. The lad from West Engle- wood, New Jersey was also elected to Who ' s Who A mong Students in A merican Universities and Colleges. Ed graduated Cum Laude from the College of Arts and Letters, with a major in Economics. Joseph S. Herrington An all-around, hard working student, Joe worked his way up to the position of editor of the Scholastic his senior year. He was also a member of the University Theatre. He was acclaimed a couple of years ago as co-author of " It Ain ' t Hay, " the smash-hit student musical. Joe, an Indianapolis, Indiana, boy was elected to Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Magna Cum Laude, with a major in Journalism. Russell E. Skall Russ was a man ever active on the campus scene. He was elected Junior Class Presi- dent in 1949, and was a participant in the Bengal Bouts. This young gentleman from Appleton, Wisconsin, became treasurer of the Student Council and one of its most respected members. He was also elected to Who ' s Who A mong Students in A merican Universities and Colleges. Russ was grad- uated from the College of Commerce with a Bachelor of Philosophy degree. t - m John W. Thornton : " Sparky, " as he was known on campus, led the Senior Class as its president in 1949-50. The handsome, stocky little red- head from Van Wert, Ohio, was also a very active member of the Student Council, a Blue Circle member, and a participant in all important campus activities. He was elected to Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, and received a Bachelor of Arts degree, Magna Cum Laude, with a major in Philosophy. Residence Haffs I SENIOR HALL REPRESENTATIVES THOMAS ZINGALES, Howard JAMES GIUIS, Walsh ROBERT LALLY, Dillon JOHN WILLIAMS, Sorin (Not pictured) SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS VERNE KELLEY, Vice President THOMAS FARLEY, Treasurer JOHN THORNTON, President JOHN CONNOR, Secretary Sorin Hall . MONG the many groups that hold forth in the caf at coffee time, none is more belligerent than the defenders of Sorin Hall as a home, a tradition, and a strong-hold of companionship. Those enclosed within the four turrets complain that the stories of old age attributed to the building are untrue, that they are merely " calloused perpetuations of the sterile past, " and definitely not to be relied upon. One undeniable fact is that the walls hallowed by the presence of Knute Rockne and the " Gipper " seem to generate a spirit of good fellowship in their followers. When the weather becomes encouraging to outdoor bull-sessions, Sorin ' s front steps are the traditional Town Hall for every subject from economics to cigarettes. And on Sunday mornings, when the crowds pass on the way to Mass in Sacred Heart Church, the view is undeniably good. Every week sees its own Easter Parade pass in front of the ancient palace, which has withstood the wind, rain, and this year ' s Seniors along with their sophomoric firecrackers. Rev.

They take pride in the fact that they alone have closets in their rooms " none of these lockers for us. " A few of the lads will tell you of the beautiful, white enamel bathtubs they have. Walsh has long been noted for its bridge foursomes. It will never be said that you can ' t find a fourth in Walsh a game is always in full swing. There ' s always a lot of activity in the hall ' s basement. Here you will find the headquarters and meeting hall of the Knights of Columbus. Recently the Knights had a television set installed for the benefit of all members. When wandering around in the basement some frigid March afternoon, you are likely to find some of the local linksmen practicing on the miniature driving range. This golfing apparatus was erected in order to give all campus golfers a chance to keep their game in some kind of shape during the off-season-months. Upon leaving the " House that Hart lived in, " you should recall the words of one of the Hall ' s residents: " She might be old, but she ' s full of life. " Rev. George L. Holderith, C.S.C.

" O PLIT in the middle and cut in two, but Howard men, they ' re -5 always true. " This is the rumored motto of the men of Howard and, though it is not deemed authentic, is expressive of the feeling that persists in the halved-hall. The division in the hall takes the form of an arch on the ground level that lends easy access to the men of Morrissey and Lyons when seeking knowledge at the university library, de-buttoned and be-holed laundry, and their sleepy trudge to eight o ' clocks. It seems that everyone can make use of the arch but Howard men, but in their charity, no fee is charged for use of the freeway. Nevertheless, Howard has its advantages in the short walk to the caf for coffee and doughnuts and the refreshing breezes from the St. Joe and St. Mary ' s lakes during final week in June. The real value of these boons can be seen in the refusal of Howard men to leave their rooms on the sweltering summer afternoons. Then, too, Howard ' s roof is a veritable paradise of sunning masculinity. It rivals " The Rock " for popularity when the sun-cult starts its perennial pilgrimage. Who can say but what this isn ' t an even more integral part of college life than that of studies, societies, and sports of the talented. For this builds men, too! Where ' s Kirk?

WHENEVER a breakfast eater is spotted in the chow hall wearing slippers, trousers, a shirt that looks strangely like pajama tops, and a sleepy look, he can almost surely be identified as a resident of Dillon Hall " the hall next to the beanery. " Many a man on the first floor has been known to set his alarm clock for 7:45, then trust to his speed and George ' s thirty seconds of grace to get through the side door before the chow hall is closed. Under the paternal eye of Father Broestl, the " little ones " of Dillon go about their last months of college life with enthusiasm and spirit. Through a successful hall carnival a junior size Mardi Gras, no less , a few raffles, and the voluntary donations of all the students, a study lounge has been constructed and furnished in the basement of the hall. Among other honors, the senior hall copped first place last football season in the hall decorations contest. The men in Dillon have a special reason to be ambitious and cheerful they will soon be finished with their education. They know that a touch of nostalgia will hit them when they leave, but it ' s a wonderful feeling to complete something you ' ve worked on for four years. Rev. Lawrence G. Broestl, C.S.C.

JUNIOR HALL REPRESENTATIVES THOMAS DIGAN, Badin THOMAS WOLFF, Alumni JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS RAYMOND YANICS, President MICHAEL JACOBS, Vice President THOMAS CARROLL, Secretary JOHN MacDONALD, Treasurer s Badin Hall . " OESTING above the various mercantile establishments on its jL - first floor, Badin Hall roomers this year kept up a tradition of fraternity established by their fathers before them. Gathering in the Bronzewood Room of the Hotel LaSalle the second of February, they feasted until the traditional curfew established by the Student Manual. In cadence with many other halls on the campus, two lucky Badinites received an all-expense trip to the North Carolina game as the result of a hall drawing. Keeping a wary eye on the windows of Brother Conan ' s establishment, many hall members used the " bog " to play Softball. Kibitzing the pitcher practically became an interhall sport. Few worried about the loss of their field to plans for a Student Union building to be built on the spot. Biology majors and engineering students with classes in the heat-power lab were the only ones to complain about the hall ' s location. In fact, after some careful research, it was found that Badinites could leave the hall at 9:28 each evening and still enjoy that last cup of coffee in the caf before it closed. Rev. Bernard J.

Fathers Eugene Burke and Bernard Furstoss watch the entertainment at Badin ' s annual banquet. r-r in n -w m a Jj Alumni Hall . . . ALUMNI Hall the Gold Coast gargoyle queen was a Junior class hall this year for the first time. When asked how the Juniors compared with the previous senior occupants, Father Carey, the rector, noted tersely that they were " louder but not funnier; but there is hope. " Chief claim to fame of the many-gabled hall is that students can wait for the bus to town in the privacy of their own rooms. And when the last bus rolls in just before mid- night, the Alumnites smile as they saunter up to their night watch- man and observe the underprivileged Cinderellas from the other halls rush to get home before they turn into pumpkins. The prox- imity of the Dining Hall makes for a steady diet for the Juniors, and a special tunnel to the dining hall called Dillon Hall South Side has been constructed to keep the lads from the elements. It ' s a good hall for ambitious and intelligent sophomores to aim for or so they say. " Students are expected to cease studying activities when lights are extinguished.

THIS year Cavanaugh Hall is the residence of more than two- hundred hopefuls of the class of ' 52. On completing their year in Cav, the residents find themselves " over the Hump " the sheepskin for which they have all been working is finally in sight. Whenever you ask one of the Cavmen not to be confused with cave men what benefits the Hall provides, he will go into a long dissertation about the fjtmous Cavanaugh Reading Room. This was the first room of its type on the campus. It provides the student with peace and quiet, comfortable easy chairs, outside reading books, the latest periodicals, etc. The lads from Cav are well versed in the field of " long-hair " music. Besides having the advantage of hearing every note and down-beat coming from Washington Hall ' s music rehearsal rooms, there are recorded concerts daily in the hall ' s reading room. These concerts have provided many enjoy- able hours to the admirers of Chopin and Tschaikowsky. It will never be said that any of the residents of Cavanaugh attend any of those " and there ' s nothing you can do about it " movies some- times shown at the local cinema. All the lads have to do is to recline on their " sacks " on Saturday afternoon, and listen to the photoplay ' s dialogue. If it sounds promising, they will go over and take a look at it that night. Who said Cavanaugh didn ' t provide any advantages? Rev. F. L. Brown, C.S.C. Rector Triple cuts today! Ted Kelly, Don Sietz, Tom Storshak. Look sharp, feel sliarp, be sharp.

" ' Lyons Hall MONG the many distinctions peculiar to Lyons Hall the photo- genic archway ranks high on every list. St. Mary ' s Lake is the subject of most of the picture-taking, but the Lyons portico serves as the framing foreground. Phy. Ed. engrossed Sophomores can be seen in sneakers and gym clothes tripping lightly through the snow on cold wintry mornings enroute to an eight o ' clock class in Rockne Memorial. It is just a few steps (whether tripping through the snow or plodding through the mud) to the Rock and all it has to offer in food, blisters, and artificial sunshine. Many residents hold fast to the theory that Lyons Hall is closer to the Dixie Highway than the Circle; ergo, they ride the St. Mary ' s bus back from town at night. They would probably frown upon anyone disproving this theory. Anyway, the " fellow " riders on the St. Mary ' s busses are much better company than those on the Notre Dame line. However, it seems that less bus-riding was done by the Lyons residents than by the rest of the campus. At any rate, the ominous pink deficiency slips slid under fewer doors in Lyons than cluttered the floors of rooms in other halls. Possibly it was the inspiration of the near-by Social Science Building, which seems to move closer each year under the battering of the northwest gales. Rev. Joseph H. Cavanaugh, C.S.C.

The spacious lobby of Morrissey is the envy of the campus and is more than revered by her men on football weekends when the folks come up. Then, too, there is the solemn notice on the bulletin board every Monday morning and charitable way Father Fryberger informs the men who missed their mass checks that they are campused until they make just compensation for -their spiritual laxity. But wait! Don ' t forget the recreation room nestled under a mass of heat and water pipes in the basement. The radio, the furniture, the ping-pong tables, the pool table, and the rugs all go to make for the touch of homey atmosphere that permeates the spirit of the hall. But the boys of Morrissey are not all studies and nostalgia. It would be unfair to finish without mention of the traditional water fights and fire- crackers that keep the rector and the prefects padding about the hall until the wee hours of the a.m. But it ' s all a part of the maturity of the friendly, homey, camaraderie of Morrissey.

RISING out of the Indiana plains on the northeast section of the campus, is Breen-Phillips Hall. Here the new freshman is orientated in the ways and means of Notre Dame life. Life in Breen-Phillips opens up an entirely new world to the student. He meets lads from all over the world. The famous " Notre Dame Spirit " is no longer something he reads about in the magazines or hears about from the subway alumni. Now it is a reality; he is part of this spirit. The first few weeks of September usually finds the new freshman a little homesick. But then footballs begin to fill the air, departmentals loom on the horizon, and the student comes to the realization that THIS is his new home for the next four years. With his fellow hikers from Farley, he takes the daily treks to the chow hall and the Social (may it one day be the practice target for an atom bomb) Science Building in stride. The fact that the gentlemen from Farley always have a few more steps to take, is consoling to the residents of B. P. it was really rough when Breen-Phillips stood out on this wilderness alone and unprotected. In their spare time the Hall ' s residents can partake of the pleasures offered by their private rec room, or watch Milton Berle over the rector ' s TV set. When leaving this Northeast Outpost, it is usually possible to hear one of the local lads singing, " Over hill over dale let ' s hit the snow drifted trails. " Rev. Frederick Gassensmith, C.S.C.

THE first question usually asked by incoming freshmen assigned to Farley Hall is, " Do we follow the on-campus or off-campus regulations? " Although automatic 11 p.m. blackout informs them that they are within the gates, the cross-country hike the next A.M. to the dining hall brings back doubts. But the lads are partially reconciled by the fact that the long trek works up an appetite which is good enough to whip the toughest chow that Ziggy can serve them. The men who have recently left high schools all over the country get their first taste of college life at Notre Dame. They learn of such things as night departmental exams, of pink slips, of restrictions, of food tasting too much the same, and of midnights coming around sooner and sooner. But they also learn of other things a healthy athletic life, a spirit of fellowship and cooperation, the beginnings of lifelong friendships, and devotion to the Blessed Virgin. And they find when vacation rolls around that they have acquired for themselves a little more prestige and respect among the folks back home, for which they resolve anew to make themselves worthy.

Within the first semester, through some high-pressure raffles, they had purchased a television set, furniture for a reading room in the basement, and a complete set of the outside reading books decreed as essential for every young college man. Settling down in his leather easy chair with " The Age Of Jackson " propped in front of him, the typical Zahmite took a dim view of the facilities to be found in other halls. If Schlesinger became a little tiresome there was always Milton Berle in the parlor. His friendship was eagerly courted by video fans from other halls; it was even rumored that some energetic beavers neglected this courtesy of friendship and for a while neighbors poured in from all over the campus without an invitation. A record number of High Masses were said in the hall chapel as a result of the formation of a hall choir. Indeed, the only worry in the Zahmites mind was the proximity of St. Edward ' s Hall which seemed to be listing to port. But there were few high winds this year and, in any event, none of St. Ed ' s bricks would dare fall on the carefully manicured grass around Zahm. Rev. Charles I. McCarragher, C.S.C.

St. Edward ' s Hall . . . elongated, revised and unrecognizable bit of architecture " ! is reminiscent of the homely and strange form of Abe Lincoln. And, like Lincoln, it diffuses the spark of gentle humor and spiritual sincerity. This reverence can be seen in its somewhat Romanesque windows but even more in its newly-decorated chapel and religious murals. The hall ' s humor can be partially attributed to the rector, Father Burke. A high percentage of pink slips at midterm had the men as well as the rector worried for a time, but all was rectified when the bulletin grades were posted. The men of St. Ed ' s vie with other east side halls in the mad eight and nine o ' clock rush for morning coffee at the Huddle. The proximity of the hall to the athletic fields, the infirmary, classes, and the " old swimmin ' hole " afford its men many desirable advantages. And they utilize these advantages to the utmost degree. Nor can many halls claim, to the extent that St. Ed ' s can, the congeniality, high-spirited humor, and modestly subdued religious devotion that mirrors the binding force that has welded the men of St. Ed ' s into their functional unity. 3 Rev.

Two things could be done either the applicants would have to be refused, or room could be found for them in South Bend. The latter possibility was chosen. Residents of the city have dusted guest-rooms and opened up their studio- couches to make room for the overflow, and each afternoon sees the busses that leave the circle jammed with contented scholars heading for their new " homes.

Krause, called " Moose, " , a.is one of the most able and popular Notre Dame men on the campus, in the athletic world, and on the banquet circuit. But this popularity and ability of Ed Krause is not just something he picked up when he became head coach of basketball, or director of athletics. In his sophomore year at Notre Dame he joined the famous shock troopers on the gridiron and worked his way to a regular tackle position where he was chosen as All ' American. Then " Moose " turned to basketball and discovered his real forte. He was All- American center on the Notre Dame quintet for three years running. Add to this the experience of several years coaching and two years in the Marine Corps, then season it with genuine sincerity and humility, and you have " Moose " Krause, " Mr. Notre Dame of the Athletic World. " FRANCIS W. LEAHY, Christian gentleman, father, and head coach of Notre Dame ' s Fighting Irish is currently com- piling a coaching record which threatens to surpass even that of his old mentor and coach of coaches, Knute Rockne. In seven seasons with the Irish, Leahy has amassed a total of sixty wins, five ties, and only three losses. Aside from this much-heralded public record, Frank Leahy is known on the Notre Dame campus as a real Christian gentleman, a man who not only teaches his charges the fundamentals of winning football, but also gives them an excellent example of the moral responsible leadership for which the University is striving. This six-foot, blue-eyed Irishman is " father " of his team only part time. Six children, four boys and two girls, give him a full-time job at home. To those who know the calibre of man that Frank Leahy is, there is no question of statistical records, for they know his way is the winning way. IOTRE II UN, COACHES Coach Leahy and the Fighting Irish are no strangers to the thousands of cheering fans who throng the sta- diums of America. Leahy ' s Lads have endeared themselves to the American public who admire their spirit and their will to win. These cheering thou- sands, who pay tribute to the Irish squad, know little if anything about the men who have made our National Champions possible and they know still less about the coaches of the other varsity sports at Notre Dame. The co-coaches of the Irish elevens and the coaches of the other varsity teams at Notre Dame work in the relative obscurity of the Golden Dome. Outside of the coaching world very little is know about any one of them. Fine ends have been an earmark of Notre Dame football since end-coach John Druze arrived on the campus. One of the " Seven Blocks of Granite " at Fordham, Coach Druze has yearly transformed gangling inexperienced youths into pass-catching wizards. Few, if any, All-American teams in recent years have failed to include a Notre Dame guard. This is a tribute to the hard work and brilliant coach- ing of Joseph McArdle who, like John Druze, was a pupil of Coach Leahy ' s at Fordham. Coach Bob McBride, recent addition to the staff at Notre Dame, tutors the tackles and still enjoys an afternoon of mixing it up with the boys. Coach Wally Ziemba was an All-American at Notre Dame in 1942 and since 1943 has served on the coaching staff. Coach Ziemba has handled most of the line positions but now concentrates on the centers. Coaches Bernie Crimmins and Bill Barley are a hard team to beat. Both Notre Dame graduates, they have made Irish backfields the scourge of the gridiron and in the process have produced numerous All-Americans. With the end of the football season the Irish basketball team under Coach Krause takes over the spotlight va- cated recently by the Irish eleven. Running parallel with the basketball season but receiving none of the ac- claim that is yearly awarded to basket- ball is a team that last year gave Notre Dame another undefeated sea- son. This was Coach Herb Melton ' s fencing team that last year won 10 matches, giving Melton a four year record that shows only five defeats. When spring comes to Notre Dame, baseball and track enter the sports picture and with the first baseball game and track meet the Irish are once again in the sports light. In these two sports the Irish have reaped rewards second only to the honors ob- tained by the football and basketball teams. Coach Kline ' s nine and the thin-clads of Doc Handy have each year won their share of national acclaim. Though termed minor sports both tennis and golf have each year given Notre Dame major victories. Coached by Mr. Langford, the head of the De- partment of Modern Languages, the tennis team has usually enjoyed a winning season. Fr. Holderith ably coaches the golf team which is fast becoming widely known throughout the country. All these men working together combine to give Notre Dame one of the finest coaching staffs and athletic departments of any school in the coun- try. Although few if any of these men have received the plaudits and the praise of the American fans, they deserve the respect and the thanks of every Notre Dame man for it is these men who have made the " Spirit of the Fighting Irish " the most respected thing in the sports world today.

It was a cheery antidote to Coach Leahy ' s pre-season prescription of pes- simism and predictions of defeat, but for the first thirty minutes it looked as if the Irish mentor had a point | or two. The new Irish squad left the field with a scant 16-6 half-time margin, but the gears meshed as the third frame got under way and the green-clad scoring machine ground out the 29th stanza of the Victory March which now entered its fourth season. An exchange of fumbles, with the Hoosier ' s Huggett figuring in both, evened up the first minutes of play and stalemated the initial Irish threat. From their own 48, the Irish on the next series of downs drove to the Indiana 17. Three plays later Sitko charged across with the season ' s first TD and Steve Oracko ' s boot gave the Irish a 7-0 lead to close a slow first period. The Irish defensive unit showed to good advantage as the second quarter opened ly stalling the Hoosiers on their own goal line. A fourth down kick was blocked by sophomore tackle Bob Toneff with a safety and a two- point addition to the scoring column resulting. Hoosiers Score Once But the Hoosiers found the key to the Leahyites defense temporarily when, a few plays later, they drove 41 yards to their only score, with Sellers going the last 17 yards un- assisted. This closed the gap briefly to 9-6. With half-time two minutes away, Coutre returned the Indiana kick to his own 39 and five plays later the Irish had scored again. This time it was a diving catch by Billy Gay of a Williams ' heave on the 12 yard line with nary a Hoosier in sight. Oracko made good for the second time and the score at the half s f ,ood 16 for the Irish and 6 for Indiana. Pressure began to tell on the in- experienced Hoosier squad as the third frame opened, while the Irish gridmen had lost nothing but their early rough spots. And, as Sitko and McGehee (right) gets worm ' s eye view as Sitko roars to season ' s first TD. Paul Burns, guard Athens, Pa. Lolly (60) drops Hoosier back as Hart (82) ignores an Indiana blacker.

The opening minutes of the third quarter saw Sitko climax a forty yard drive with a scoring plunge from the six, his second for the day. It was Larry Coutre and Frank Spaniel who did the work on this march. The extra point was blocked. Brief minutes later Billy Gay re- turned an Indiana punt 50 yards to the Hoosier 13. Larry Coutre streaked to a tally on the next play and Oracko added the extra point. As the quarter ended " Six-yard " Sitko drove just that distance over right tackle for his third TD of the opener. Again Oracko ' s effort was good and the score at the three-quarter mark stood at 36-6 for the Irish. Irish Subs Finish The ND bench was cleared, as the fourth frame opened, in an effort to stem the tide, but the reserves racked up two more scores in the last fifteen minutes while Indiana ' s efforts be- came increasingly futile. Mike Swistowicz climaxed a 57 yard drive by smashing the last yard for another TD. Soph quarterback John Mazur then gave his pitching arm its first workout for the Irish and tossed a perfect 17 yard strike to Bill Wightkin in the end zone for the final notch. Oracko made good on one of his two fourth quarter conversions and ended the season ' s first game with the score reading 49-6 for the Irish. Leahy ' s predictions looked some- what ridiculous on the face of this first showing, but the Irish had been slow to start against a young Indiana club, and things are due to get tougher before the Irish could claim laurels that they had missed last year.

FOOTBALL EXTRA SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1949 HUSKIES TOUGH; BUT WILT AFTER HALF-TIME TIE tin re Dame 27 Washington 1 Penalties Plague the Irish; Hart Scores Twice to Give Spark to Notre Dame ' s 30th The largest Seattle crowd ever to see a football game on the shores of Pudget Sound watched Washington ' s Huskies battle the Fighting Irish to a 7-7 half-time deadlock before be- coming the thirtieth link in Notre Dame ' s defeatless string by a final margin of 27-7. Though the Irish showed superiority in every statistical department, it was the Huskies, aided by a congenial brace of briefed officials, who drew first blood. An early Washington lead was nullified by a second quarter ND score and two more Irish tallies in the third frame, plus a final clincher in t he fourth gave the South Benders the game. Huskies Score First A Coutre fumble on the first series of plays gave the ball to the Huskies on their own 45 and the next play saw a 40 yard heave over the Notre Dame secondary connect for a TD. Sporting a 7-0 lead, the Husky line and a parade of West Coast interpretations of the rule book, each good for 15 yards against the Irish, bottled up the mid- westerners till near the end of the half. With the clock reading one minute to go in the 2nd quarter, the Irish be- gan to roll from their own 39. Williams mixed Gay, Coutre and Sitko to eat up the yardage to the Husky 21, then rifled a pass to Leon Hart on the three and the big end lugged the pigskin and a trio of protesting Huskies into the end zone for the score. Steve Oracko toed the tying point between the uprights and the Irish left for intermission dead-locked with Wash- ington at seven points. Toneff Blocks Punt A fruitless exchange of punts oc- cupied the opening minutes of the third stanza but Bob Toneff crashed through to block the second Husky kick on the 25 and Bill Flynn finished the operation by recovering on the 14. Sitko lunged for his usual six yards on the next play, then Hart again, this time on an end-around, crashed the remaining distance to break the tie. A wide kick by Oracko left the count at 13-7 for the Irish. Coutre Scores Third The aroused Huskies put on a de- termined drive to re-knot the score but a jolting tackle by Hart caused the pigskin and quarterback O ' Leary to part company on the Irish 29, end- ing the last Washington threat. On Borrett (37) blocks and Sitko hits Huskie hole. John Landry, fullback Rochester, N. Y. Mutt Jeff team for tally. Billy Barrett (37) escorts Hart (82) to pay dirt.

After Spaniel had carried to the 30, Larry Coutre hit over tackle and with a good convoy raced to the third Irish TD. This time Oracko connected and the Irish ended the third frame with a 20-7 lead. Subs Hold Huskies The pace slowed as the fourth quar- ter opened with penalties still plagu- ing the Irish. While the Huskies bogged down deep in their own ter- ritory, Hart again slammed through to jolt O ' Leary into fumbling and this time Flynn recovered on the Wash- ington 18. Hart then chopped the dis- tance down to six yards by wheeling around from end, Spaniel added 3, and with the last frame still young, Jack Landry lunged over for the final tally. Again Oracko split the goal posts and the Irish prosecution rested with a comfortable 27-7 lead. The Notre Dame offense showed signs of speeding up and working well under pressure as they added the pride of the Pacific Northwest as the thir- tieth in a growing string of victims. But Purdue had come close last year and next week they have dreams of finishing the job. Huskies corner Coutre. Statistics N. D. Washington 17 First downs 9 297 .. Net yards rushing 17 15 ....

Emil Sitko was waved across the Purdue goal three times as he carried the mail for chief engineer Bob Wil- liams. Other Irish crew members added fuel to the fires that left little fear of a repeat of the ' 48 close call. Not until the last quarter were the Boilermakers able to get a scoring drive under way before the homecom- ing crowd in their newly-enlarged stadium. Irish Go 94 Yards A penalty against the Irish sparked a Purdue drive that the ND defense couldn ' t stall until it hit the Irish six. Taking over on downs, Williams sent Spaniel around right end on a naked reverse and the Pennsylvania speedster streaked to the Purdue 41. On the next play Sitko splintered the center of the Purdue line and went all the way to his first score. Oracko ' s kick was good and the Irish took a 7-0 lead. The 80 degree heat slowed both teams for the greater part of the quarter until a Purdue punt gave the ball to the Irish on their own forty- two. Coutre and Sitko then combined their talents to go to the Purdue nine in five plays as the quarter ended. Sitko Scores Again It was Coutre again on the first play of the second frame for five more yards, then Sitko hurdled for the last four and his second tally. Again Oracko split the goal and the Irish led 14-0. A fighting Boilermaker team drove to the Irish 33 after the kick-off, then a bruising tackle jolted the ball from Adam ' s hands and Petitbon recovered. This time big Leon Hart led the way with the help of Spaniel and Williams to carry once more to the Purdue nine. Sitko then stepped in and over the Boilermakers forwards for his third six-pointer. Oracko made good again and the Irish sported a 21-0 lead. Gay Intercepts As the second stanza came to a close the Boilermakers took to the air from their own 45 with Gorgal on the heaving end, but Billy Gay stole the ball from mid-air and raced 61 yards for another Irish score. With Boilermakers take to air as Waybright (80) follows suit. William Gay, left half Chicago, III. Hart (82) shatters Purdue line on way to score. Wallner (63) convoys Landry into the clear.

Oracko ' s fourth straight conversion Notre Dame left with a 28-0 half-time lead. Helwig Steals Pass Not until the middle of the third frame did the Irish do it again. Then Johnny Helwig intercepted another Gorgol pass on his own 18 and tramped to the Purdue 46. Williams hit Mutsch- eller on the 34 with a pass, and Landry and Barrett did the ground work to the six. Barrett roared to another Irish TD and Oracko made it 35-0 to close the scoring for the visitors. In the last quarter the Boilermakers began to build up their first head of steam for the day. Szulborski and Hartman took the lead from their own 35 and three plays later Kerestes car- ried over from the six to score. Szulborski Scores Only minutes later the hosts tapped at the Irish gate again. Another Purdue drive, sparked by Skowron ' s fake quick-kick, went for sixty yards and was climaxed by Szulborski ' s 15 yard dash to the second Purdue score. The Irish shone brightly in the sta- tistics as they took the Boilermakers into camp with ease to add their third victory of the ' 49 season and make the undefeated parade go to 31 games. In their third game the Irish showed the early-game scoring spark that had been missing in their first two games and girded for Tulane. But Coach Leahy had labelled the Green Wave from New Orleans as his toughest op- ponent since ' 41, and next week ' s game is expected to give the Irish their biggest obstacle to another undefeated season.

DOES NOTHING WRONG; TULANE ROUTED nl IT Dame 46 Tnlane... 1 Four Scores in the First Quarter Set the Pace for Notre Dame ' s 32nd Win A mighty tide in its own Dixie puddle, the Green Wave of Tulane proved an ineffectual rill in the Mid- western gridiron pond as the flawless Fighting Irish hit their season ' s peak in pulverizing the Southerners 46-7 before an overflow crowd. Only slim favorites at the opening gun, the Irish won the game in the first ten minutes of play, gave the visitors sixty seconds of glory as the second quarter opened, then systemat- ically but futilely tried to hold the score down. Coutre streaked across the last stripe no less than three times in the first frame and Frank Spaniel added a fourth score before the stunned audience could get its breath. Coutre Scores First The opening Tulane offensive drive was never given a chance to get on its feet and, as the Irish took over on downs, Larry Coutre took off through center on the second play for fourteen yards and the opening score. Just two minutes later this same Chicago speed- ster took a pitch-out from Bob Wil- liams on the Irish 19 and followed perfect blocking for 81 yards to his second tally. While the predictors took another Landry picks his hole as Irish line clears the way. William Wightkin, end Culver City, Cal.

Coutre dances; Tulane man grabs air. . . . as Irish bottle up Tulane offense. look at the form charts and upped their point spreads, Bob Williams flicked a floater to Bill Wightkin that the big left end carried to the Tulane 2. Williams then handed off to Coutre and the Chicago Redhead made good his third six pointer in less than ten minutes. Then it was another Wil- liams heave. This one Frankie Spaniel gathered in 38 yards down field and led the Tulane secondary into the end- zone by a good five yards. Steve Oracko made good on three out of four conversions and at the quarter the Irish led 27-0 in as perfect an exhibition of offensive football as had ever been seen on the collegiate gridiron. Irish Offense Slows The Irish offense slowed perceptibly as the second frame opened. Various backfield combinations and defensive lineups experimented in moving the ball and holding the Green Wave to a minus yardage, but the regulars added another six pointer as the sec- ond quarter ended. Bullet Bob Wil- liams lofted a 44 yard aerial to Wight- kin and sneaked around end on his own for another twenty yards to set up a scoring play on the Tulane 20. This time Williams flipped a high one into the end zone and Hart pulled it down to end the half with the score reading 33-0 in favor of the Irish. The reeling Green Wave put on a desperate rally as the half opened and their efforts netted them a lone tally. A 76 yard dash down the east sideline with a pass reception and the sub- sequent kick put the crew from New Orleans back in the money column but wore out their scoring punch. With Williams again running the show, the Irish advanced to the Tulane 11 in four plays from the kickoff. Williams heaved short passes to Hart and Wightkin and bootlegged one him- self, then fed the ball to Spaniel for 11 yards and the score. With the subs holding Tulane but failing to score, the third quarter ended with 40 for the Irish, 7 for Tulane. Using all 55 players on the bench, Dr. Leahy tried to apply an antidote for the scoring pace, but the fourth quarter produced another Irish tally. After the Tulane line held him for two yards on his first offensive play, Billy the Kid Barrett picked up room mate John Petitbon for convoy and cruised behind the New Orleans native ' s per- fect blocking for 59 yards and the final TD. Steve Oracko missed his third conversion in seven attempts, but closed the scoring at 46-7. The dazzling perfection of the Leahy men against what was rated as their toughest opponent to date set new standards for the nation ' s pretenders to the National Championship throne. Tulane ' s Ail-American Eddie Price was the only man in the visiting back- field able to gain yardage, and that was limited to 26, while Larry Coutre alone romped for 101. Bob Williams took firm hold on the quarterbacking heritage of the Fighting Irish in this his fourth starting game and Notre Dame was in undisputed first place in the nation. Statistics N.

THE SUN FOOTBALL EXTRA BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1949 NAVY SWAMPED BY IRISH AS ZALEJSKI SHINES ol IT Dame 40 lavy Middies Are No Match for Rampant Irish as Williams Stars for Home Town Fans For the first four minutes in Bal- timore ' s packed Babe Ruth Stadium the fleet was sailing high, wide and handsome toward the Irish goal, but the ND dreadnought, in its first East- ern appearance, launched a mythical Flying Dutchman in surprise starter Ernie Zalejski who took charge as the Midwesterners racked up a 40-0 scut- tling of the Navy. Irish speed, power and deception behind a water-tight defense and un- der the smooth navigation of Com- modore Bob Williams was too much for the sailors who found Zalejski alone scoring three times. Williams Takes Over Performing before his home-town fans, Williams steered the Irish pow- erhouse to a score a few plays after the Green dads ' defense had stopped the opening Middy thrust uncomfort- ably close to the Irish goal. A 23 yard toss from Williams to Zalejski was scooped in on the Navy 25 and Ernie had his first score four and a half minutes from the opening whistle. Twice more after Oracko had made the score 7-0 for the Irish the Navy drove within the ND 20 only to have the shifting, deceptive Irish defense, spike the big guns of the fleet, with Mutscheller and Burns sparking the action. The early minutes of the second frame found the Irish in possession Steve Oracko converts with Williams holding. McGehee (74) and Hart (82) block. Zalejski scampers for first of three IDs.

Five plays later, with Emil Sitko carrying on two of them, the Redhead bored through center for 16 yards and the third TD of the day. After Oracko made it 21-0, the Middies tried again, this time reaching only their own 46 before surrendering to the Irish. Two Williams ' aerials to Zalejski covered the distance neatly and Ernie carried the last on his second visit to the Navy end zone. This time Oracko ' s effort was wide and the Irish sported a 27-0 half time lead. Irish Subs Move In With the subs running the show in the second half, the ND scoring ma- chine lost momentum but not its ef- fectiveness. Without a pass being thrown, the number two and three units ground out two more TDs and kept the Middies bottled up in the neutral zones. Soph quarterback John Mazur steered a 54 yard sortie into the enemy waters in the middle of the third stanza climaxed with Jack Landry dashing 14 yards to a score. This time defensive star John Petitbon took a shot at the conversion but failed, leaving the Irish on top 33-0 at the three-quarter mark. Promising defensive work by subs Ostrowski, Boji Co. stopped the last Navy thrust 20 yards short of pay dirt and cleared the decks for the final Irish drive. It was Zalejski to the fore again. After two plays had netted four yards, Ernie sprinted off tackle for 76 yards through the Navy ' s pickets with Billy the Kid Barrett springing him loose with a well-timed block. Again Oracko split the uprights and ended the day ' s conquest at 40-0. This was number 33, but the Spar- tans of Michigan State had been build- ing for next Saturday and the Leahy- men looked forward to more of a scrap than outclassed Navy had provided. Statistics N. D.

THE STATE JOURNAL FOOTBALL EXTRA LANSING, MICHIGAN, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1949 WILLIAMS LEADS IN DEFEAT OF MICHIGAN STATE m IT Dame :! I Mich. State 21 Chadnois Extends the Irish Defenses as Williams Has His Greatest Day to Date In Michigan State ' s Macklin Stadium the superb scoring machine of the Fighting Irish, with Bullet Bob Wil- liams in the driver ' s seat all the way, brought the Spartans to defeat in a modern Thermopolae to the tune of 34-21 by roaring back from a 7-7 sec- ond quarter tie. While the Leahyites added their 34th strand to an undefeated skein, Wil- liams gave one of the most sensational exhibitions in the sparkling history of Notre Dame quarterbacking as he out- ran, outpassed, outkicked and outwit- ted a game Spartan squad and paced the Irish victory . Baltimore Bob com- pleted 13 aerials in 16 tries, two for touchdowns, and another to set up the tie-breaking score; twice holed up the Spartans with coffin corner kicks; and then capped his individual efforts by swiveling for 40 yards on the ground for another score. End-Zone Pass Clicks The first score of the day came on a 15 yard Williams pass that Ernie Zalejski gathered in on the State four and carried to pay dirt. Later in the first frame, a Williams fumble on the Irish two set up the first State score for a tie. Racing the clock, Williams caught the Spartans off-guard with a pass from his own end-zone, mixed Sitko on the ground with a pass to Wightkin to go to the State 20, then fed Coutre over guard for the score.

Williams Scores On Fake In eight plays after receiving the kick opening the second half the Irish had scored again. After a mixture of ground plays had taken the ball to the State 40, Williams faked a lateral to Sitko around end - - then Bob waltzed on to score. Not until the last stanza did the Irish score again. With the Green- clads apparently bogged-down on the State 12, Sitko went over tackle for the fourth tally and with Oracko ' s toeing, boosted the margin to 28-7. Taking over from State on downs after the next series of plays, the Irish scored after one Williams toss to Wightkin went from the 36 to the 10 and a second sent Hart into the end-zone. Oracko ' s fourth placement in five tries split the uprights, and ended the Irish scoring at 34 points. State Comes Back Two Gene Click passes scored for the Spartans in the last three minutes over a relaxed Irish defense for a 34-21 final. Consistently, it was Lynn Chadnois, an All-American in any one ' s book, and Ev Grandelius who paced the ever-dangerous State ground attack. The crowning surprise of the day, though, was a new Leahy de- fense that puzzled the Spartans from the opening gun. Hart and Toneff Head Defense With Hart and Toneff featured in starring roles, the Irish defense hud- dled and broke into varying forma- tions with every play. Giving the op- position no chance to employ strategy based on the defensive set-up, the Irish effectively throttled the Spar- tan ' s single wing until it was too late to count. Now that number thirty-four is under their belt, the Fighting Irish, in undisputed first place in the nation, look to Yankee Stadium and North Carolina to set a record in modern football history for consecutive games without defeat.

Carolina Strength Wilts at Half Time; Barrett Scores Three Touch Downs After an absence of two years from the New York gridiron scene, the adopted sons of those football enthu- siasts returned to Yankee Stadium to engage the Tarheels of North Caro- lina before 67,000 people. It was not, however, until after thirty minutes of grueling football that the Fighting Irish could add a determined group of Southerners as the thirty-fifth victim in their undefeated string. Without the services of their triple threat Charlie Justice, the Carolinians nevertheless carried the offense to the Irish for the first score, tied down the Notre Dame aerial game and achieved a 6-6 half-time stalemate. But Irish power and deception used Hart, Bar- rett and Williams to usual advantage in the second half, and by the end of the last thirty minutes the Tar- heels were a defeated ball club. Bob Williams ' first blocked kick of the season came in the first three minutes of play due to the yoeman work of the Carolina forwards and the Southerners took the offense from the Irish 10. Twice Dick Bunting car- ried, twice he went for five yards, and on the second he put his Tarheel mates out in front by a 6-0 margin.

The game was primarily defensive as the half dragged on and the crush- ing Irish scoring machine of the pre- vious weeks couldn ' t show against the inspired Tarheel line that put the Notre Dame wall at a disadvantage for the first time. But Martin and Mutsch- eller were the defensive men that held the Carolinian ' s margin within reach. Then as the second quarter closed and the fans began to wonder if this was Notre Dame, Frank Spaniel gave the expected answer. Bottled up on their own 22, the Irish faked Sitko into the center of the line, then Spaniel cut over tackle, hesitated, picked up blockers and went 78 yards with the tying six pointer. Oracko ' s kick, too, was blocked, and the Irish left the field at half-time tied 6-6 with North Carolina. Barrett Breaks Tie The superior power of the Irish for- wards asserted itself as the second half opened, and the game Carolinians rapidly faded from their opening bril- liance. A first down from a penalty started the Irish moving early in the second frame and a short pass from Williams to Hart proved the way out. Hart gathered in Williams ' heave while playing piggy-bank with a hoard of would be Carolina tacklers, but had little trouble handing off to Billy Barrett who easily sprinted the re- maining 20 yards for the tie-breaking tally. Again Hart figured in the third period scoring when he blocked a Bunting punt in the end zone result- ing in a safety, good for two points. One Oracko conversion out of two at- tempts left the third period score at 15-6 for the Irish, but the Tarheels faded badly as the Notre Dame re- serves put on pressure. Two Passes Score Two Irish marches featuring Wil- liams ' pitching and a variety of re- ceivers started the last frame and both ended in scores. The first came on an 11 yard fling by Williams to Frankie Spaniel in the end zone and the second was a 29 yard toss that hit Billy Barrett as he crossed the last chalk mark. With the clock running out the Tar- heels stuck to passing, but a Bunting pass intended for the ever-dangerous Art Weiner was stolen by Mike Swi- stowicz on the Irish 15 and, with Gay and Mutscheller throwing the key blocks, he went 85 yards to another score. The subs took over in the last few minutes and added the final score as Billy the Kid Barrett capped the best day of his first season. A recovered fumble and an 18 yard heave by Mazur that Barrett collected on the Carolina five and carried over did the trick. With Barrett ' s third TD of the day and Oracko ' s fifth conversion in seven tries the Irish left the field with a 42-6 victory. Setting a new modern collegiate record with their undefeated streak now swelled to 35 games, the Irish held unquestioned supremacy in the collegiate football world, but a rugged Iowa squad, fabled for its upset vic- tories over Notre Dame, is due next week.

Determined to revive the upset tra- dition of a decade ago, the boys from the tall corn country fought the Irish every inch of the way and held a 7-7 tie till just before the half-time intermission. The 56, 790 fans had barely gath- ered their blankets against the sea- son ' s first cold when the Irish took a 7-0 lead. Billy Gay recovered a Hawk- eye fumble on the first series of plays on the visitors 32 and the Irish moved to pay dirt. Three running plays car- ried the green-clads to the Iowa 12 and Williams looped a pass to Spaniel in the end-zone for a score with only four minutes gone. Oracko made good on the conversion to give the Irish a 7-0 lead and it looked like things were going according to plan. Williams ' Kicks Help But fumbles and penalties and the bitter weather cut down the effective- ness of both squads as the quarter lengthened and Williams ' punting was the only Notre Dame weapon against the rugged Iowa line. But Baltimore Bob succumbed to the fumbling fever in the opening minutes of the second frame and a Hawkeye tackle pounced on the loose ball to halt another Irish drive. In three running plays, high- lighted by Faske ' s 33 yard dash, the lowans went to the Irish five, then a jump pass scored and a perfect con- version knotted the tally. With the fans wondering about the fabled Notre Dame scoring power in the fading minutes of the half Leon Hart went to work on the answer. When the lowan ' s Drahn attempted to punt out of danger from deep behind his own twenty, Hart roared through to deflect the kick and the ball rolled out on the Hawkeye 22. Hart gath- ered in a Williams ' pass for 14 yards a play later and on the next crack Billy Barrett barrelled around end for the tie-breaker. Oracko made it two in a row from the placement line and the half ended with the Irish holding a slim 14-7 lead. The defensive units played the game toe to toe as the third frame opened. But when a series of penalties set the Irish back to their own five, the spark reached the kindling point. From this point the Green-shirts went 95 yards Spaniel vaults Hawkeye forwards to score.

Williams heaved to Spaniel again and the little half-back raced to the lowans ' 41 be- fore he was forced across the side- lines. It took fourteen more grueling ground plays, but Spaniel again cracked the Hawkeye line for six points, and destroyed the upset hopes of the visitors. Defensive Game Shines Again the defensive lines took the brunt of the battle. The colorless third quarter and the majority of the last frame dragged by with fumbles and jarring tackles the only breaks in the game. Neither squad was able to take undue advantage as the forwards held the game within the two thirties. While the last minute ticked off the Irish hit for their last score. When the drive seemed bogged down inside the Iowa thirty Williams took to the air again and lofted a long toss to Hart that connected for a fourth score. Oracko hit on his fourth conversion of the day and the Irish took their thirty-sixth without defeat with a 28-7 drubbing of the lowans. In spite of a slow game, it was Bob Williams ' big day as his 11 comple- tions in 21 pass attempts set a new season ' s passing record that surpassed the efforts of such greats as Lujack and Bertelli. In this defensive battle the Irish were able to grind out only a small yardage advantage over the best line met to date, and Johnny Petitbon stood out in his role as defensive safety. The Sophomore speed mer- chant pulled down three goal-bound Iowa backs from behind and under- lined his claim to a permanent berth among Notre Dame defensive greats. Emil Sitko will be back in the famous number fourteen jersey that the grasping lowans ripped loose to- day, but the Trojans of Southern Cal are due in town next week with the nation ' s top passing game, and today ' s production doesn ' t appear to give the Irish too much of an edge over the Westerners who came closest in last season ' s closing game.

California Four Horsemen See Hart at Fullback; Trojans ' Passing Fails as Irish Take No. 37 Notre Dame ' s Fighting Irish re- emphasized their claim to the Na- tional Championship today as they methodically and spectacularly carved out the 37th notch in their four-year undefeated skein 32-0 at the expense of an outclassed Southern California. While a capacity crowd suffered from the cold the Irish drove for two tallies in the opening frame, then added a score in each succeeding quar- ter while holding the Westerners scoreless. The famed Four Horsemen were guests on their twenty-fifth anniver- sary and saw an exhibition of speed and power second to none in their ex- perience, with Leon Hart briefly mak- ing his debut in the fullback slot. Hart Scores On Pass Twelve slow minutes went by in the first quarter before Bob Williams applied anti-freeze to the powerful aggregation at his disposal. With a third down forty yards out from pay dirt Williams heaved a 38 yard pass to Leon Hart who went across stand- ing up. Oracko ' s conversion attempt was good enough to boost the account- ing to 7-0 for the Iris;h. Less than two minutes elapsed on the Scoreboard clock before Notre Dame had its next score. On the second play from the kick-off Powers un- limbered the dread Trojan passing game but to his own grief. John Petit- bon snatched Powers ' effort from the astonished receiver on the Cal 43 and was in the end-zone in a twinkling. The rush was too much for Oracko and he missed his try for the extra point to leave the Irish with a 13-0 half-time lead. Wallner Recovers Fumble A fumbled punt at the opening of the second frame was recovered by Freddy Wallner to set up the third scoring drive. Leon Hart moved over to the fullback spot from end as the drive began. His bruising drives com- bined with Billy Barrett ' s 19 yard jaunt put the ball on the Trojan 11. Leon then powered through a dazed Trojan line and left the ball on the 4. Hart remained at fullback and Emil Sitko at end as the Cal line bunched for another assault. But this time Williams only faked his handoff to Hart down the middle then fed Sitko on Hart ' s favorite end-around play and the Redhead cruised over without trouble.

Starting on their own forty, the Irish stuck to the ground on this drive with Wightkin, Coutre and Spaniel getting some ground-gaining help from Hart, the converted end. Spaniel split left tackle for the last two yards and another score, and when Oracko for the third time failed to convert the Irish led 25-0. Barrett Scores Final Tally The final tally came in the last quarter on another non-stop drive from the Notre Dame 44. Bill y Barrett took a Williams ' pass to the Trojan 22 and Zalejski and Hart, again at full, split the chores to the 6. Barrett got only a yard on his try through the Trojan center but on the next play Billy the Kid roared to a score. The last try for point by Oracko was good and the Irish led 32-0. Only once in the game did the Trojans threaten. A forty yard heave by Powers connected to the Irish 15, but the Green shirted Leahyites held for four downs and ended the threat. Lally, Martin, Groom and Helwig were the big guns of the Irish defen- sive units that held the visitors from the west to a skinny 17 yards on the ground. Only the vaunted Trojan pas- sing attack could get anywhere, but never when it counted. Three Cal pitchers outpassed Williams 148 yards to 112 but their completions came only twice within the Notre Dame 20. Again, the Irish reminded the fans that they were the country ' s best. Giving the game ball to Coach Leahy in a spontaneous post-game tribute the Irish celebrated their clinch- ing of the National Championship but the wide-open football of the South- west was due from SMU a week hence.

Methodist 20 Irish Finish Perfect Season As Best Game of the Year Goes Into the Record Book BY ARCH WARD, Sports Editor. Chicago Tribune Notre Dame today added the final star-spangled chapter to its golden 1949 football season by defeating Southern Methodist 27-20 before an overflow crowd of 75,428 in the Cotton Bowl. The Mustangs, playing without their ace passer, Doak Walker, lived up magnificently to their reputation for wide open, daring football. They were the only team that stood up to the nation ' s No. 1 collegiate unit for 60 minutes. There was never a moment when the Fighting Irish looked like certain winners. This was Notre Dame ' s 10th straight victory and the 38th game it has played without defeat. It also marked the fourth consecutive season that the team has played without a setback. Today ' s triumph belongs to the Notre Dame line. Twice the Irish stopped the Mustangs inside their 5 yard line, once on the four, and again with SMU only a foot from a touch- down. The defensive work of these linemen should be engraved in stone on the Notre Dame stadium for future generations of Irish linemen to admire. The offensive star of a battle that surged from one end of the field to the other was SMU ' s Kyle Rote, the best all-around back the Irish have faced this season. He passed, he ran, and he caught. His trickery found the Irish, widely rated as Phi Beta Kappa in gridiron technique, completely off guard on two or three occasions. s A scorching passing attack from the opening kick-off by Rote and Benner spelled trouble ahead, but after four straight passes had taken them to mid-field, Johnny Helwig intercepted another and went to the Mustang ' s 31. Spaniel and Coutre found a stiff SMU line ahead of them and couldn ' t make their usual distance. An incom- plete pass, a 15 yard penalty and finally a four yard loss on an at- tempted pass forced Williams to punt into the Mustang ' s end-zone. Rote sailed into action again, and before he was stopped this time had run and passed to the ND 16. Johnny Petitbon saved the day for the Irish this time by stealing a Benner ' s pass on the 10 and going to his own 27 before being pulled down. Then the Irish moved; 21 yards went by with everyone getting in on the act in five running plays. Coutre ' s The play of the year tally and Mutscheller catch Rote short of the tying tally.

Oracko converted to put the Irish ahead 7-0. A surprise pass by little Johnny Champion went to the ND 40 and receiver Milan churned to the Irish 6 before Petitbon ran him down. Petit- bon, Lally, Groom and Swistowicz bunched up to hold Rote with a first down on the six. In four tries, with Rote powering into the center on each, the Mustangs made only five yards, two feet. Williams had to kick out of the hole and Southern Methodist began to move again from its own thirty-five. Billy Gay gave them no time to get started when he snatched a Rote pass on the 22 and took it back to the thirty-four. Sitko and Barrett toted to the SMU 34, then a 15 yard pen- alty intervened. Williams changed tactics again, heaved a long pass to Zalejski in the end-zone and the South Bend flash successfully argued with three Mustang defenders for posses- sion and the second Irish score. When Oracko missed the conversion and an- other ND score was nullified on a penalty, the Irish left the field sport- ing a none-too-secure 13-0 lead. Two Zalejski fumbles, as the half opened, cooled Irish drives, and Rote and Co. began to move. Doak Walker ' s shadow went 18 yards, then 23, and Champion legged it to the three. On the next play Rote scrambled over and the conversion made it 13-7. Mutscheller then intercepted a Rote pass to set up another Irish score on the SMU 22. Spaniel, Barrett, Landry and Hart, the latter again operating from fullback, powered to the three in small bites, and Barrett carried over to make it 20-7. That was the excuse the Mustangs needed. On the first play from scrim- mage Champion took a Rote pass on his 45, cut back, and went to the one before Lally could discourage him. Once more Rote scored and this time the kick was good to make it 20- 4. A 15 yard penalty stopped the next Irish try and Rote went berserk from the ND 14, covering the distance in three tries for the tying score. Sul- livan came in to boot the point that would put the Mustangs ahead but Jerry Groom boomed through to block the attempt and leave the score knotted at 20-20, and ten minutes remaining. Then the Irish proved their claim to the National Championship and Emil Sitko left no doubt as to his right to Ail-American honors. In spite of two heart-breaking 15 yard pen- alties, the Irish moved to the SMU six without relinquishing possession and with Sitko sparkling through the center of the Mustang line on every try. Finally Barrett sneaked around left end for his second score of the day and with Oracko ' s boot, the Irish led 27-20. But another desperate goal-line stand was necessary to hold the ram- pant Mustangs. Rote engineered a drive to the Irish 5, but Hart bar- relled through to block another pass attempt and finally Lally and Groom together grabbed a Rote pass on the 7 to end the season ' s best collegiate game.

Y., Oct. 18, 1924 Outlined against a blue-gray Octo- ber sky the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death. These are only aliases. Their real names are: Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden. They formed the crest of the South Bend cyclone before which another fighting Army team was swept over the precipice at the Polo Grounds this afternoon as 55,000 spectators peered down upon the be- wildering panorama spread out upon the green plain below. A cyclone can ' t be snared. It may be surrounded but somewhere it breaks through to keep on going. When the cyclone starts from South Bend where the candle lights still gleam through the Indiana sycamores those in the way must take to the storm cellars at top speed. The cyclone struck again as Notre Dame beat the Army 13 to 7 with a set of backfield stars that ripped and rushed through a strong Army defense with more speed and power than the warring Cadets could meet. Twenty-five years is a long time for four men to be fresh in the memories of fickle sports fans. Today the fans saw one of the greatest college foot- ball teams in operation, but their at- tention was on the sidelines at half- time. Harry Stuheldreher, Don Miller, Jim Crowley and Elmer Layden the Four Horsemen of Notre Dame were back where they made football history, and captured a permanent niche in the memories and imagination of America. The Fighting Irish have won many a national championship, turned out many an All-American and have been accorded reams of praise, but they couldn ' t compare with the four who ran rampant at Yankee Stadium in 1924. None of the Four Horsemen are in football any more, and none are at Notre Dame. But today they realized that they can never separate them- selves from the School of Our Lady, the school they immortalized at Yankee Stadium in October, 1924. Basketball ( IN AMERICAN PAPER FOR AMERICAN;, GREATEST NEWSPAPER BASKETBALL EXTRA SEASON 1949-50 O ' SHEA COMPLETES BASKETBALL CAREER AT N.D. Won 15 Lost Wins Over St. Louis and Kentucky Feature Season for Soph - Studded Squad Led by their captain, Ail-American Kevin O ' Shea, the Sophomore studded Irish quintet garnered a record of 15 victories and nine set-backs for the 1949-50 season. For the Irish it marked the poorest campaign, percentage- wise, since Coach " Moose " Krause took over as chief mentor of the cagers. Talented and willing, but gen- erally inexperienced, the Irish started slowly, dropped games with only spo- radic flashes of ability, then rose to great heights on occasions to top such perennial powers as Kentucky and St. Louis. The general decline in team play from the calibre of the last few sea- sons is attributed to the bulk of capa- ble, but unseasoned men on the squad while only three lettermen returned from the ' 48- ' 49 quintet. This decline failed to hamper the efforts of Notre Dame ' s O ' Shea as he surpassed nearly every university scoring record. O ' Shea, known in his previous seasons as a sensational play-maker and con- summate ball-handler, continued his floor artistry but added his record- breaking assault on the scoring columns. Kevin established an all- time Notre Dame record of 1065 points in four seasons of play, a three year mark of 855 points, and a new single season record. During the final game of his collegiate career, needing 20 points to tie Leo Klier ' s one year total, O ' Shea poured 23 through the hoop for a final of 358 points. Center John Foley and reserve guard Tom Johnson were the only other seniors on the ' 49- ' 50 squad. Foley, completing his fourth year as a mono- gram winner, was particularly effec- tive with a left-handed hook shot and at the foul line led the regulars with a creditable .692 average. Marty O ' Connor, small but aggres- sive Junior guard, this year copped his second monogram, while another junior, Dan Bagley, established him- self as an outstanding re-bound artist and the team ' s third scorer with a total of 255 points. Standing 6 ' 4 " , Bagley provided the young squad with needed height and weight under the backboards, while O ' Connor proved a sparkplug to many a rally. At the free-throw line, Marty connected with 24 of 30 free throws for an .800 aver- age. Neal Fichtel, third junior on the squad, added support in over half the games played.

Don Strasser in the guard slot. Leslie, displaying a patent left-hand push shot from the edge of the keyhole, took second honors in the squad ' s scoring derby. A smooth ball-handler, Leslie was particularly outstanding in the Loyola fray in Chicago Stadium where he pumped through 20 points. Strasser, the chunky Chicago guard, provided the Irish with much-needed strength in the set-shot department, and teaming with O ' Shea, helped to weave the quintet into a tighter de- fensive unit with exceptional perform- ances at the Kentucky and Butler games. Jack Neumayer, reserve for- ward at the outset of the season, re- bounded his way into a starting berth at the half-way mark. A top-flight ball-hawk and play-maker, Neumayer also contributed to the improved de- fensive alignment that was obviously lacking in the early games. Other promising sophomores who saw limited action were Hughes Wil- cox, Bob Wray and Mike Jaekels, all of whom have the height which Notre Dame cage squads have lacked in recent campaigns. Wilcox ' s 6 ' 6 " tops the group, while Wray offered serious competition for a starting berth with his ambidexterous hook-shot. Rounding out the traveling squad were sophomore Dick Clancy and junior Gene Kenny. Kenny was forced out of competition early in the season with a hand injury, but Clancy per- formed well in his few appearances. Opening the twenty-four game schedule on their home floor, the Irish John Foley, center Worcester, Mass. turned back Creighton University in a dull 57-50 contest. O ' Shea ' s ball handling, with Strasser and Bagley ' s shooting, gave ND a 27-22 half-time lead. Leslie ' s hot left hand provided the added push in the last period to give the Irish their first win. Traveling to Madison, Wisconsin, the cagers fell badly, dropping the second engagement by a 56-48 margin to the Badgers. The Irish had one bright memory, though, as Kevin O ' Shea outscored Wisconsin ' s Reh- feldt by dropping in 21 points. In their first appearance at the Chicago Stadium the Irish came out on the short end of a 66-65 tally, los- ing to Northwestern in a last quarter surge. Bagley and Strasser each netted 13 points for the Irish, but were un- able to match Ray Regalis ' pace in the last frame. Returning to their home court, the Irish were still unable to shake their slump and dropped the third in a row, this time to Iowa. The Hawk- eyes ' well-executed freeze in the last three minutes protected a 64-62 mar- gin of victory. Again, it was the case of the Irish being unable to match their opponents ' surge in the last few minutes of play. The annual Hoosier Classic in Indi- anapolis during the Christmas holi- days brough some improvement in Irish basketball fortunes. Indiana, later voted ND ' s best opponent, took the first game on superior speed and experience by a 79-69 score, in spite of O ' Shea ' s contribution of 21 tallies. But improved team play showed the way to a break in the four game los- ing streak. The second game of the tourney found the Irish swamning Purdue 59- 41 with a re-vamped lineup that tight- ened the defense and added punch under the basket. Leslie tossed in 14 points for the second win in six games, as O ' Shea and Strasser each added ten.

The sophomores making up the bulk of the squad seemed to be settling into harness, as Don Strasser held Butler ' s leading scorer, " Buck- shot " O ' Brien, to a single field goal for the evening. Bagley ' s 18 points headed the scoring column as ND piled up a comfortable half-time margin and the reserves made their first appear- ance on the home floor. Continuing their winning ways, Notre Dame ' s hardwood squad traveled to East Lansing to trounce Michigan State 76-65, with O ' Shea ringing up 21 points for the third time. In the rather loosely played contest Leslie added 19 points to take second scoring honors. Two days later it was again O ' Shea with 21 as DePaul fell to the Irish 58-53 in a closely played game. Trail- ing 40-21 at the half, DePaul rallied to within two points of the Irish, but four successive hooks by Foley were the deciding factor as Notre Dame hung up victory number seven. Heading east on a two-game jaunt, the Irish stopped at Cleveland to polish off John Carroll, 73-66. Actu- ally, the game was decided at the foul line, while O ' Shea, as usual, took scoring honors, this time with 18 points. Moving on to Buffalo, the Irish five- game winning streak rudely snapped Thomas Johnson, forward Chicago, III. by a 53-50 loss to Canisius. A disputed play in the last minute of play prac- tically assured Canisius of the win. O ' S hea and Strasser each netted 12 points in the losing cause. Back at Notre Dame, the combina- tion of Michigan State and their home floor put the Irish back in the win column as the Spartans fell, 71-65. Center Bill Carey racked up 28 points for the Staters, while Dan Bagley ' s 18 led the Irish, with Leslie and O ' Shea following with 17 and 16. A capacity fieldhouse crowd of heavily partisan fans saw the high spot in the season ' s play for the Fight- ing Irish as the Wildcats of Kentucky, fourth ranked team in the nation, fell in a thrilling game, 64-51. Seven- footer Bill Spivey poured in 27 points with his stratospheric hook shot, but the rest of the Kentucky offense was slow to the keyedup Irish squad. De- fensive team-work gave the ND quin- tet the advantage under the boards as Spivey was consistently blocked out and a pressing defense on the outside kept down the usually high-scoring Kentucky forwards. In making the game a team victory, the Irish jumped out to an early ten point advantage, and, in marked contrast to previous performances, kept the pressure on to hold a comfortable lead throughout the game to take the 64-51 win. Appreciably more confident after their victory over Kentucky, the Irish returned to Chicago Stadium to even the series with Northwestern as they won a fast-paced game, 64-57. Ray Regalis of the Chicagoans led the evening ' s scoring with a 27 point barrage and Leroy Leslie took indi- vidual honors for the Irish with 15. Abruptly reverting to the off-key play of the early games, the Krause- men next dropped a 63-57 contest to Butler in Indianapolis splitting the two-game series with the old rival. Poor passing and a generally lack- adasical defense allowed Butler to take an early lead that eliminated the Irish from competition.

Meeting Marquette ' s Hilltoppers in the sloppiest game of the season for the ND fieldhouse, the Irish came through with an easily earned 79-61 victory. Foley ' s perfect evening of work from the floor and charity line netted him 13 points, while O ' Shea contributed 17 points and Bagley added 16. Returning to Chicago Stadium, the Irish met Loyola of Chicago for the first time in decades, and took the slow contest 56-41. Loyola led till the half, but a steady attack by O ' Shea and Bagley gave the Irish the lead during the second half and they coasted in to win. The Billikins of St. Louis continued a three year jinx of the Irish as they copped a 55-45 win before a packed and partisan house in St. Louis. While the Irish, playing a poor floor game, went scoreless twice for periods of six minutes or more, the Billikins kept up a steady pace throughout the game to take an easy win. O ' Shea was again tops for the Irish with 18. Back in the fieldhouse, Notre Dame took the second of the year from Loyola of Chicago, this time by a 67- 60 margin. Although Leroy Leslie topped the scorers with 20 points, O ' Shea ' s 12 tallies were sufficient to set a new three year scoring record of 788. The first half was a see-saw affair, but three quick baskets by Foley, O ' Shea and Leslie as the sec- ond half opened were sufficient to give the Irish the lead they held for the distance. A red-hot DePaul five, sporting a .426 shooting record, spanked ND with a neat 68-58 set-back in Chicago Stadium. The Blue Demons, who were mediocre in their earlier game in the fieldhouse, canned shots from all an- gles in this second meeting. Only Dan Bagley stayed in the game for the Irish, dropping in 22 markers fol- lowed by a faltering 15 from O ' Shea. In the last of the season ' s home games, the Irish regained some of the form which they had shown in the Kentucky game as they took a thril- ler from St. Louis University to the tune of 55-52. At the half, Coach Ed Rickey ' s slick five held a 29-27 lead, but the Irish stayed in the ball game, keeping a loose three point margin. Matching the visitors point for point, into the final minutes of play, the Irish came from behind to grab a slim 53-52 lead. Then with O ' Shea sinking a long one-hander in the final seconds, the Irish broke the three year win streak which the Billikins had held over them. Taking their second eastern trip of the season, the Irish invaded Madison Square Gardens for the traditional game with NYU and also played an afternoon game at Annapolis with the Middies. In a hard-fought contest against the Navy, Notre Dame ' s quin- tet took a 65-59 victory, with a series of timely hook shots by John Foley turning the trick. Bagley led the Irish scoring attack with a 19 point barrage. Against the Violets in New York, the Irish turned in another of their sporadically poor games. Sloppy pas- John Neumayr, forward Son Francisco, Cal. sing and wild shooting told the tale for the Irish as NYU took the contest 66-63. Leslie dropped in 17 points to lead the Irish scorers. In the season ' s finale, Capt. Kevin O ' Shea was the key man as the Irish took their second of the season from Marquette, this time by a margin of 65-58. In this, his final collegiate game, O ' Shea tallied 23 points to set a new single season scoring record of 358 points, three better than the pre- vious record held by Leo Klier.

Coach " Doc " Handy took five sophs, a junior and a senior and turned out a group that won one dual and two triangular meets while dropping two dual contests. The long-distance men also took a second place in the Central Collegiate Conference Meet, a second place in the Indiana State Championships, and tenth in the National Collegiate. Either sophomore Benny Almequer or junior Jim Kittell invariably led the harriers around the four mile course, with three other sophs, Conrad Tetrault, Bob Fieler, and George Cross bunched behind them. Soph John Mohar and senior Jim Kelly missed the early races because of injuries, but did some nice running at the close of the season. Tony DaDamio, Jerry Johnson and Ted Prahinski also competed in several meets.

Gehrmann won, setting a new Notre Dame four mile cou mark of 19:52. Indoor Season . I Fleming ' s missing but it doesn ' t matter. Leo McKillip is on his way to a high hurdle triumph against Purdue. Ugh-h! John Helwig really heaves the shot. Miler Jim Kittel and Two Miler Ben Almaguer stride towards the camera. An undefeated dual-meet record and some good showings in the open meets set the pace for the indoor track team. Victims of the Irish by margins that ran from twelve to nineteen points were Missouri, Purdue and Indiana, three perennial mid-west track powers. Top team showing was the second place in the Central Collegiate Con- ference Championship behind Mich- igan State, probably the nation ' s best indoor team in 1950. The squad ' s top star was hurdler Bill Fleming, one of the best athletes ever to wear a Notre Dame track jersey. Bill started the year by win- ning the Sugar Bowl 120 high hurdles on New Years in 13.9 seconds for a meet, and also Notre Dame, record. Only four men in track history had previously bettered this time. Six firsts and a second showed on Bill ' s season record with the team, the lone loss being in the low hurdles. In his spe- cialty, the highs, he never lost, even though he was plagued with leg muscle trouble for the greater part of the season. Leo McKillip backed up Flem- ing quite capably in the hurdle races. The other name star was shot put- ter John Helwig. John raised the school record to 54 ' 4 " in winning the Central Collegiate Meet and lost only twice during the indoor season. On both occasions Helwig dropped the decision to Charlie Fonville, former world ' s record holder, whom he was able to beat once. Providing depth in the shot was John ' s brother, Joe, and Bob Toneff. Team strength told during the suc- cessful indoor campaign as the squad scored one or more places in every event in each of the three dual meets. The half-mile proved the deciding event in each dual contest. No op- nonent could match the pace of Notre Dame ' s Jerry Johnson, Val Muscato, John Mohar and Joe Riley, all of whom did 1:57 at least once during the season. These four also formed one of the better two-mile relay teams in the mid-west. The field events also garnered points for the Irish thin-clads. Notre Dame had the shot-putting Helwigs, broad jumper John Worthington and pole vaulter Jim Miller, all of whom won their specialty in each of the dual meets. In the running events, Notre Dame found nice balance in the 440. Team Captain Bob Smith, Paul Schwetsche- nau, Bob Boyne and Jim Bellas formed a mile relay foursome that was con- sistently up front in the open meets and the members of the team showed favorably when they ran the indi- vidual quarter-mile. Captain Smith was also a steady point-getter in the sprints the 60 and 300 yard dashes. Jim Kittell usually led the milers, but sophomore Con Tetrault developed fast and did 4:24.8 before the season closed. Lou Lepry also added strength on several occasions. Benny Almaguer was far and away the best of the two milers. He and Bob Fieler, another sophomore from the cross-country squad represented Notre Dame in the long runs. The Michigan State Relays, on the first weekend of February, ushered in the season. Bill Fleming tied the meet mark in winning the 75 yard high hurdles and led the team showings. The next three weekends found Doc Handy ' s squad dumping- Purdue, Mis- souri and Indiana in dual meetings. In beating the Purdue and Indiana squads, the Irish won the mythical indoor championship of Hoosierland. The Helwig brothers made a family affair of the Central Collegiates on the following Saturday as John set his all-time record for the University in the shot-put, whole Joe grabbed sec- ond place in the same event. The senior Helwig carried his rec- ord form into the Illinois Track Relays the next week and gave Michigan star Chuck Fonville, his only loss o the season. Mile and two-mile relaj teams also represented the Irish wel in the Chicago Daily News Rela; matches. In the indoor season finale, thi Purdue Relays, held on the last week end of March, Jim Miller led thi squad participation as he took a firs place tie in the pole-vault. Coach Elvin " Doc " Handy directed the team in one of the better seasons in Notre Dame track history. John Smith, law student and former hurdlei handled the assistant coaching chore during pre-season workouts until his January graduation, with journalism senior Bill Leeds filling in for the season proper. Outdoor Track . . . During the outdoor track season Notre Dame competed in five open two dual and one triangular meet High point of the season was the win- ning of the closed Central Collegiate Championship with 89 points, nearly twice as many as second place Mar- quette ' s 50. Marring the triumph was the absence of Michigan State, indoor CCC champions, who were competing in an Eastern meet that weekend. Notre Dame won nine events in the closed Central Collegiate meet. The most thrilling was the last one, the mile relay, where sophomore Jack Wagner, running anchor for the first time, held off two established quarter mile stars, Gene Lavery of Drake and Paul Unruh of Bradley to win for Notre Dame. Other winners for Notre Dame were Bill Fleming, high and low hurdles; Jim Kittell, mile; John Worthington, broad lump; Bob Smith, 220; Val Muscato,880; Ben Almaguer, . two mile, and Jim Miller, pole vault. The week before the meet Notre Dame took second to the outdoor Big Ten champions, Indiana, in the Hoosier State Championships. Bill Fleming was the outstanding performer of the day by virtue of a 23 seconds flat triumph in the low hurdles for a new Notre Dame and meet record. Bill also took the highs. The first two open meets of the season were the Kansas and the Drake Relay carnivals. Hurdler Fleming was the big boy in both contests, taking third at Kansas and first at Drake in the high sticks. John Helwig also pulled down a second and a third in these two meets, while Jack Murphy slung the javelin 199 feet, 4V4 inches to take fourth in the Kansas meet. Notre Dame took it on the chin in the first two dual meets of the year, Pittsburgh doing the trick by a mere third of a point, 65%-65y 3 while Michigan State really laid it on 83-58. Pittsburgh got its triumph by virtue of a hairbreadth win in the last event, the mile relay. Unusual feature of the meet was the Helwig sweep of the first two places in both weight events. Joe took first in the discus and second in the shot, while brother John won the shot and took second in the platter throw. Both Bob Smith and Bill Flem- ing were double winners in this meet, Smith in the 100 and 220 and Fleming in the dashes. The Michigan State meet of the next week saw Bob Smith repeat his double sprint triumph, but Fleming had to be content with a second in the highs and a first in the lows. John Helwig too, was a double winner taking both shot and discus. Tom Devine and Hughes Wilcox helped the Notre Dame cause along by tying for first in the high jump. Paul Ewing and Don Mahrt broke into the scoring lineup. Ewing scoring in th e 100 and broad jump and Mahrt in the pole vault. Crist clears the high jump bar and heads for the pit. Jim Miller crawls over the bar and shoves away his vaulting pole. Ben Alomager finishes two mile run all alone. Bill Fleming It ' s not even close. Bill Fleming leaps across the finish line in the low hurdle race against Purdue. A lad most likely to follow Greg Rice as one of the greatest track stars ever to perform on the cinders of Car- tier field is hurdler Bill Fleming. Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, and LaSalle Academy, Bill is the type of athlete every coach dreams of and seldom is priveleged to direct. Because he has, besides natural ability and the necessary physical equipment, the will to win, he does. And he sets records doing it. Back at LaSalle Academy, a big school, all boys, Bill found the athletic competitive spirit a major thing. He wanted to be on one of the teams, which one he didn ' t particularly care, so he tried football, but they ran out of equipment before they came to him. He tried basketball, but was cut from that squad. Then he turned to track, but it was the cross-country season and Bill felt he should not venture from the Academy, so he quit. Soon, however, he noticed some friends of his at hurdling practice and gave it a try. He liked it. But the coach thought Bill would make a better high jumper. As if to justify this, Bill promptly upped LaSalle ' s high jump record to six feet. Then Bill got his break. An injury had placed the regular hurdler of the LaSalle squad out of commission for the season, and Bill felt sure he was the man for the job. The coach told him he was too slow, but in four months time Bill had come from 16.8 to 15.2 in the 120 yard high hurdles, good enough to set a Rhode Island state record ! When Bill got to Notre Dame and hit intercollegiate competition, he found that his 15.2 was mighty slow in the big time, so Notre Dame track coach " Doc " Handy stepped in to help him solve his problem. Seeing that Bill ' s hurdling technique was already perfect, coach Handy put him through a gruelling sprinting program that developed his speed, and set him on the road to fame. When he joined the armed forces Bill became the Eighth Army ' s track coach, and in Tokyo in 1947 he won the Pacific Inter-Command 120 high hurdles and 220 low hurdles titles. In 1948 Fleming returned to Notre Dame and resumed his training sched- ule to iron out the G.I. kinks. On New Year ' s Day of 1950 Bill had the great- est day of his career at the Sugar Bowl tourney in New Orleans. On that day he topped the 120 yard high hurdles in the record shattering time of 13.9, beating the great Olympic hurdler Craig Dixon and eclipsing the standing Sugar Bowl record of 14.3, as well as lowering the Southern lecord of 14.1. For Bill that day was especially memorable because; it was the first race of the season, it was the first time he ever cracked 14 seconds flat and above all, it was the first day he con- quered Craig Dixon. Dixon at this time was NCAA and AAU hurdles champion, and had bested Fleming twice on the west coast where he ran for UCLA. The first such time Bill hit a hurdle and lost his stride. The next time he got off to a bad start. But always he kept in mind: " The man who wins is the man who thinks he can. " And Bill thought he could. He would go aside after each race and analyze his faults, then try to solve them. He was ready when January 1, 1950 rolled around, and he accomplished what he had set out to do. Over his desk throughout his school years, Bill pasted a poem which kept him in a winning frame of mind: " If you think you are beaten, you are . . . If you think you ' ll lose, you ' ve lost . . . Success begins with a fellow ' s will, it ' s all in the state of mind. If you think you ' re outclassed, you are. You ' ve got to think high to rise . . . Life ' s battles don ' t always go to the stronger or faster man: but sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can. " Such a man is Bill Fleming. Jim Miller Whenever and wherever Notre Dame ' s track team puts in an appear- ance, the fans will see streaking down the turf a little mite of a guy, tena- ciously gripping a big long pole and then vaulting off into space and jack- knifing, with lithe grace, over a high bar. The little fellow goes by the moniker of Jim Miller, and happens to be the finest pole vaulter that has ever graced the Notre Dame track team. He ' s holder of the all-time Notre Dame pole vault record, 13 ' 9 " . Besides vaulting, Jim also hurls the javelin during the outdoor season and has the added abil- ity of being able to clear the high jump bar in the vicinity of six feet. When Jim was a youngster back in his home town, Schenectady, New York, the kids used to hop around on bean poles, trying to see who could vault for the longest distance. As they progressed, they struck upon the idea of vaulting a nearby creek; Jim was one of those who succeeded and, elated over his success, he decided to join his high school track team as a pole vaulter. Under Mount Pleasant High ' s ca- pable coach, Norman Kitching, who turned out another Notre Dame track star, Jim Schmuakosky, running mate of the fabulous Greg Rice, Jim mas- tered the art of pole vaulting, develop- ing a pendulum swing, and mastering the hand stand at end of the jack knife over the bar. Jim proved an apt pupil by setting New York state ' s pole vault record at 12 ' s e " . As a sidelight he high jumped to a new Schenectady mark of 5 ' lV i " . Perhaps Jim ' s most cherished mem- ory of his high school career is when he represented the United States in a meet against Canadian track stars in Montreal in 1946 and tied for the pole vault championship. Since coming to Notre Dame, Jim, The two mile relay team, John Mohar, Jerry Johnson, Joe Riley and Val Muscato, left to right.

Jim feels that he ' s still progressing toward his peak although he set a new Notre Dame mark of 13 ' 9 " . Jim vaulted to that record height in the Central Collegiates at Michigan State in 1949. He wasn ' t aware of the fact that he had set the record until the meet ' s recorder announced the height over the P. A. system. He and hurdler Bill Fleming had been chatting nonchalantly just before Fleming began high jumping; Miller was paged for the vault and so he picked up his bamboo and hurtled to the record height, absolutely unaware that the bar was hanging at 13 ' 9 " ! Jim attributes his record to the fact that he was completely relaxed and at ease at the time of the vault. Jim believes that a good vault can be made only if the vaulter ' s run and take off are executed at a moderately fast, steady pace. He remarked that too many vaulters failed to place em- phasis on their run ; " They either run too fast, at an eneven pace or without the proper balancing of the pole. " He believes that the new hard steel pole imported from Sweden aids a good vaulter in raising his vault mark anywhere from six to nine inches, and that the new pole will aid some of the coming collegiate vaulters in breaking Warmerdam ' s monopoly on the 15-foot height. Last year, Jim proved his finesse in the javelin throwing department by pinning down second place in the In- diana State meet with a heave of 184 ' 6 " . Jim, a physical Ed major, has his eyes set on a coaching job after gradu- ation in June and, if he succeeds in improving his vault marks, he intends to go on vaulting in big track meets throughout the nation after gradua- tion as a member of some amateur athletic organization. John and Joe Helwig . . . Things looked so dark at the begin- ning of this track season that Coach Doc Handy took to inserting ads in the Scholastic in hope that some hither-to unknown talent might be found. There was one department, however, which gave Handy not even the slightest trouble. This was the shotput and the answer was found in 100 Walsh Hall, for there resided the Helwig brothers, Joe and John, who, with hurdler Bill Fleming and pole-vaulter Jim Miller, formed the backbone of this year ' s track team. Outside the shadow of the Golden Dome, Helwig is just another name in the star-studded cast that gave Frank Leahy his fourth consecutive unde- feated season here at Notre Dame, but there is quite a story behind the careers of these two Irish athletes. Both were born in Los Angeles, Calif., attended Mt. Carmel High School there, and are now in the Col- lege of Commerce. But there ends the comparison. While one has gone from success to success in the field of ath- letics the other has been ever plagued by an unsmiling fate. Older brother Joe w ho is now 24 and will graduate in January is the hard-luck half of the brother combina- tion. Joe came to Notre Dame in 1946 after serving a two and a half year hitch with the Navy in the Pacific, and reported immediately for football practice at Cartier Field. He never earned a monogram, however, for he was hampered almost from the start by a knee injury which caused him to give up the sport entirely in 1948. After his misfortune, Joe last year turned his attention to mastering the art of shot-putting and is looking for- ward to earning his first monogram at the ball-pitching sport. His best effort to date has been a 48 ' 6 " heave, but his steady improvement in this new skill indicates that he should gather quite a few points before the end of this track season. On the other hand, it seems that every task begun by the twenty-two year old John developed into a letter- winning performance. He has won three monograms at Notre Dame so far two in track and one in football and, as he is a cinch to grab another in each of the aforementioned sports, will have gathered five before gradu- ation in January of next year. Although none can deny that John was a very important cog in last season ' s football machine, his greatest skill lies in his ability to toss the six- teen-pound shot. This was true even in high school, and it was in his senior year at Mt. Carmel that he first caused eyebrows to lift by heaving the 12-pound ball a distance of 59 ' 5% " . This set a new national high school record, breaking the old mark of 59 ' 1 " held by DeWitt Coulter, ex-Army grid star, and for his effort, John was placed on the All-American high school track team picked by Look magazine in that year (1946). The change in climate which John encountered in coming to Indiana doesn ' t seem to have affected him, for he has easily broken all existing Notre Dame shot-put records. His best performance to date was at the Cen- tral Collegiate meet at East Lansing where he took first with a pitch of 54 ' 4 " . He got off a heave of better than 55 feet in this same meet, but just barely stepped out of the circle and had it called foul. He beat the Big Ten champion, Chuck Fonville of Michigan with a 54 ' 1 " toss in the Illinois Tech Relays. Good luck or bad, Coach Handy had less to worry about with these two steady, consistent point-getters. They were two good competitors on a fair track team. Broad jumper John Worthington tries to get a little height. Leo McKillip, Michigan State ' s Horace Smith, Bill Fleming and Jesse Thomas hit the second high hurdle together.

THE GREAT BreakfastTabkPaper I OF NE V ENGLAND BASEBALL EXTRA IRISH NINE SUFFERS WORST SEASON IN YEARS Won .... 8 Lost 14 Weakness in Hitting Com- bined with Eratic Pitching and Fielding Responsible Notre Dame finished the 1950 base- ball season with a poor record of eight wins and fourteen losses. Sometimes the games were lost because of the lack of hitting, at other times because of errors in the field or in the heads of the ball players or the coaches, and at still other times because of the weakness of the mound staff. The team batting average of .253 was definitely not a good one. Only two remanaged to bat over the .300 mark, Tom Boland .318, and Dick Giedlin .317. Capt. Tom Martin fell from his 1949 average of .346 to .278. Undoubtedly this team made more errors than any other Notre Dame baseball team in history. In all sev- enty-one fielding errors were made, but more than half of these misplays were made by four inexperienced infielders. Bob Nemes, who won five and lost none last year, won and lost more games than any other pitcher this season. Bob won three but he also lost five. Mike McGrath and Tony Lipton each won two and Jack Hilbrich won the other. Jack also suffered three defeats. As the student body enjoyed the Easter holidays, the Notre Dame base- ball team was opening its season against Illinois Weslyan at Blooming- ton, 111. The contest ended with Notre Dame on the long end of a 4-1 score. Three Irish hurlers, Mike McGrath, Jerry Ledwidge and Jack Hilbrich, went to the hill and worked three in- nings apiece, holding the Titans to just three singles. Meanwhile, two sophomore infielders, Jim Manning and John Cunningham, were driving in all the Irish runs with a pair of doubles. Almost a week of idleness followed this opening win and the effect the lay-off on the players was by no means good. Three games were called off because of the inclement weather dur- ing this period, two at Iowa and one, with Michigan State, at Cartier Field. When the Cartier Field opener fin- ally did take place it was another dark, rainy day. The outcome of the game made it even darker as far as the Notre Dame fans were concerned, with the Irish losing to Ohio Univer- sity 4-1. A little left bander from Ohio Uni- versity ruined the day by tossing up a neat four hitter at the Irish. Only a streak of ninth inning wildness saved Coach Klein and Thomas Martin, outfielder and captain of the 1950 Irish nine. " Jake " shows two of his aces Lipton and Nemes how he wants it done.

Charlie DePrekel relieved him in the eighth and finished the game in good style. Still holding down the fort at Car- tier Field, Coach Kline ' s crew man- aged to get back aboard the victory train the next day as Tony Lipton pitched and batted his way to a com- paratively easy 6-2 win. Tony pitched seven hit balls as he became the first Irish hurler to go the distance and also hit a home run to open the last half of the second. Coach Kline and team then traveled to Kalamazoo, only to lose to the Western Michigan Broncos, 8-1. The same three pitchers who ex- celled in the season ' s opener went to the hill again against the Broncos, but this time with very little success. Jack Hilbrich started and took the loss. Once again (the third time in four games) the Irish batters were able to amass only four hits. This game also marked the first collapse of the team in the field. Six errors were re- corded, as many as were made in the first three games put together. Another period of bad weather hampered the team ' s efforts to get back to the winning ways expected. This time eight days went by without a game being played and little prac- tice was possible. Three more games, Indiana and Michigan at Cartier Field, and Great Lakes in Illinois, had to be called off. On May 2, the postponed Michigan game was played on Cartier Field to the delight of the Notre Dame fans. The Wolverines were then riding atop the Big Ten as potential champs but the Irish won 4-2. Bob Nemes turned in a masterful three hitter, going the full route; and Joe Pfaff, a sophomore playing his first game at third base, pounded out three hits in four times at bat to spark the team. One of Joe ' s hits was a tremendous triple in the right- center field alley which knocked in two runs. Then, down to LaFayette went the Fighting Irish only to be set back on their heels by the Purdue Boiler- makers, 11-8. The Boilermakers col- lected fourteen hits off the slants of three Irish Singers and won the game in the first three innings. Shortstop Jim Manning had three for three to lead the Irish attack. Back home at Cartier Field the next day, Notre Dame lost a heart- breaker to Michigan State, 11-10, in a wild, free-swinging match. The game was not always close, State got off to an eight run lead before the Notre Dame leadoff man even had a chance to get his hands on a bat. The Spartans scored three more runs in the second inning and that was enough. The bright spots in the game were the relief pitching of Jack Hilbrich and the fine fielding of first baseman Dick Giedlin. The next contest was the first of five road games in a i - ow and things were not looking good for the Irish. In this game the University of Chi- cago belted four ND pitchers to the tune of fifteen hits to gain its first victory over a Notre Dame baseball team in eighteen years, by a 18-16 counting. Bob Netmes suffered his second loss for the season in the Chicago shelling. But the Klinemen kept at it on the road, and when they returned home, the Irish were once again up to the five hundred level. Wisconsin ' s Badgers provided only slight opposition as the Irish swept a two game series at Madison. One of these games was a night game, the first one a Notre Dame baseball team had participated in since the war years. The night contest saw Tony Lipton weather a twelve hit storm and come off with the decision, 10-5. The Notre Dame batters had their biggest game of the season as they pounded out a varied assortment of fourteen hits for a total of twenty-two bases. Don Grieve clouted a triple and a double to drive in three runs and Dick Giedlin had a pair of doubles. Mike McGrath did a fine job of relief pitching for seven frames of the second game and was credited with his second win, 14-5, against no defeats. Mike relieved Bob Stefko- vich after the Badgers had scored five times to take the lead, 5-2. In the fifth inning the Irish put together six hits, including a round tripper by Capt. Tom Martin, a walk, and three timely Wisconsin errors for nine runs and the ball game. This was the biggest single inning enjoyed by the Irish squad all season. Coach Kline and his boys then went up to Minneapolis where they matched wits with the Minnesota Golden Goph- ers in two games, one of them at night.

Although outhit, 8 to 5, the Klinemen managed to pick up eleven walks from the Gopher pitchers and win without too much trouble. The next day, however, the Gophers evened the series when three of Coach Kline ' s sophomore pitchers yielded fif- teen runs on eleven hits in seven in- nings to the rampaging Gophers. The result of the game was 15-5, the worst defeat of the season. Jerry Ledwidge took the loss. The Irish, even up at six wins and six losses, returned to Cartier Field after their venture in Big Ten com- petition. Earlier, they just lost games, now they found themselves throwing them away in the late innings. Purdue was the first team to take advantage of this magnanimity on May 16 and were handed a 6-4 win. The Irish held a 4-3 lead going into the eighth and lost the game, 6-4. The Boilermakers added one more in the ninth to ice the game. Bob Nemes went all the way and suffered his third setback. Dan Nespo and Dick Giedlin were the batting stars for the Irish. Dan got three for five, including a home run, and Dick got a single and a double in four trips. The next day at Northwestern, the Irish lost another game in the eighth, 11-10, after an uphill fight to gain the lead in that very inning. A triple wit h the bases loaded by Tom Boland in the seventh and a two run homer by Giedlin in the eighth put the Irish into an 8-7 lead, which they promptly booted when they took the field again. But the Wildcats bounced right back with four runs in their half of the game to clinch the game, 11-10. The Irish scored twice in the ninth as a final effort but it fell short. A two day home stand against Ohio State fared the Irish no better. The first game was a two hit shutout and the second, another give away program. In the opener Jack Hilbrich was out-pitched from start to finish and the Buckeyes took the honors, 2-0. The State pitcher wove himself a neat no-hitter for 6 innings before wavering. Charlie Kreis opened up the fire- works in the second game by blasting a three-run homer far into center field in the first inning, and the way Bob Nemes was pitching it looked like more than enough to win, but he ended on the short end of a 12-8 tally. Nemes went into the seventh with a three run lead, 4-1, and he had al- lowed only two hits up to that time. Then the Buckeyes got the range; five runs in the seventh, another in the eighth, and still five more in the ninth knocked out Nemes and over- shadowed Notre Dame ' s four run rally in the ninth and the game ended with the tying runs out of sight. Jim Gillis had a perfect day at the plate with three singles. Both teams got ten hits. However the perfect fielding of the Buckeyes stood out against six Irish misplays afield. The Irish continued to lose games by dropping a return match with Michigan, 13-1. Bob Nemes took his fifth defeat of I the year as the Wolverines counted three runs in the first inning and then coasted the rest of the way in. John Cunningham got two of Notre Dame ' s five hits in his four trips to the plate. Moving from Ann Arbor to East Lansing made no difference to the Irish nine. They lost to Michigan State for the second time in the season by the score of 7-1. A three run outburst in the fourth turned a pitchers duel into an easy victory for the Spartans. The M.S.C. pitcher held the Irish to a mere three hits and drove in four runs himself. Four games then remained on the schedule. Four games and a challenge. The team met the challenge half way, winning two of the four games. The first of the four game home- stand proved to be the worst defeat ever suffered by an Irish nine, as the Illinois Braves clubbed four pitchers for twenty-one runs and a 21-0 victory. Notre Dame never had a chance as the visitors scored in every inning but the second. Once again the hitless wonders were held to three hits, this time all singles. And adding to the misery was an all- time high in Irish boots. No less than eight errors were made by the hapless Notre Dame fielders, seven of them in the infield. The next day, however, the Irish were able to scrape together five hits in their 4-1 loss to Illinois, just one less than they got in the two previous games put together. All the Illinois runs came at the expense of starter John Hilbrich who took his third loss. Evidently a nine game losing string did not suit the Irish because in the very next game, against Great Lakes, they put on their hitting suits and collected an assortment of twenty-one hits as they scuttled the sailors, 17-6. Jim Gillis, John Cunningham, Tom Boland and Capt. Tom Martin all banged out three hits. Charlie Wolfe got two for two. Notre Dame won their last game of the season from Western Michigan, 8-7, avenging an earlier defeat. A two out, two run ral ly in the eighth brought home the victory for the Irish and gave Bob Nemes his third win of the year. Notre Dame continued to unleash their long dormant batting power by blasting three Bronco hurlers for sixteen hits. Dan Nespo and Charlie Wolfe each got three hits but it was a pair of singles by John Cunningham (as a pinch-hitter) and Jim Manning that drove in the tying and winning runs in the eighth. Eight seniors played in their last game for the Irish of Notre Dame and all contributed to the win. And so the season ' s end finally came. As a matter of fact, it is difficult to place the blame for the poor season on any one thing or person. A great many things could be cited. It is enough to say that this was the poorest season a Notre Dame team has seen in over twenty-five years and we hope there is never another one like it.

AFTER dropping three of their first four matches, the Notre Dame golf team bounced back to finish the rest of the season unde- feated, but the University of Detroit managed a tie in a thrilling duel in the motor city. The victory over Michigan State on May 22 marked the climax of another successful year for Rev. George Holderith, C.S.C., coach, and successful as it was, it might have been even more so had the April weather been more con- ducive to the sport. Following the close of school, Cap- tain Paul Hudak and Tom Veech were sent to represent Notre Dame at the National Collegiate Tourna- ment at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, June 25 to July 1.

The Tennis Team k S was the case with most of the Spring sports, tennis got off to a sluggish start. Coach Walter Langford ' s chief difficulty seemed to be the fact that he was unable to find a winning doubles combi- nation at first. Of course the lusty northern Indiana breezes were no help either, as they swept across the courts at almost every home match and provided a most formidable opponent for the Irish netters. Early in May, however, Captain Gene Biittner and his crew began to hit their stride. Besides taking a few singles matches, the winning doubles combinations were found, and another victorious season was the result. Serving with Biittner on this year ' s squad were Bob David, Pat Tonti, Herb Hoene and Jim Hennessey from last year ' s team, and a couple of potent sophomores, Tom Overholser and Matt Tuite. Hoene and Tuite were named co-captains of the 1951 tennis team at the season ' s close. Against such odds as the weather, inexperience, and foes like Wisconsin, Michigan State, Michigan and Northwestern, the team proved itself a worthy representative of Notre Dame by its spirited showing.

Under the superb coaching of Herb Melton and paced by such standouts as Capt. Bob Schlosser, Ralph Dixon and Nick Scalera, the swordsmen slashed through a rugged ten-meet schedule undefeated, and without even a close match. Records were set and then broken again on consecutive weekends at the Irish squad posted their best season record with a 10-0 final tally. Typical of this brilliant season were the 20J 2-6J 2 drubbing of the strong University of Chicago, its worst de- feat of all time, and a 23-4 revenge over Detroit, last year ' s only loss for Notre Dame. A fitting climax to this record-breaking year was the excel- lent showing made by Notre Dame ' s entrants in the NCAA tournament held at Detroit ' s Wayne University, March 24-25. The Irish startled eastern fencing powers by placing a laudable sixth in the meet, the highest spot ever copped by Notre Dame, or by any midwestern school. The outstanding caliber of this year ' s Notre Dame team was evidenced by the very favorable comments of Olympic fencing coach George San- telli, a spectator at the Michigan State match. With such a season as this Notre Dame held the undisputed No. 1 ranking in the midwest.

With Don Murphy, NROTC individual National Champion, heading the squad, the " Firing Irish " posted good scores against some of the best marksmen in collegiate ranks. Stan Brons, Don Reily, Jim Hartman. and Pat Daugherty made up the remain- der of the first squad that represented Notre Dame in competition in this sport, meeting the best opposition from all parts of the country. Other members of the marksmen ' s squad included Navy and Air Force Reservists, as well as civilian students among whom were: Kam Hayden, Bill Weir, Wayne Six, Frank Brickson, Frank Buemel, Joe Boiling, George Knopp, Al Richter, Dick Six, and Bill Stermitz. With the bulk of the present squad returning next year, Captain Daly has prospects for an even better season in ' 50- ' 51. National champion and coach NROTC individual champion Murphy congratulated by Capt. Daly. Musclemen Enter Competition . . . After a slow and rather informal begin- ning, the Notre Dame weight-lifters from Father Bernard Lange ' s muscle building emporium north of the Main Building broke into intercollegiate competition dur- ing the year. With captain Charlie Meyer taking the lead in competitive muscle-flexing, the Irish musclemen competed in two matches giving a good account of themselves in each. The small squad consisted of Joe Helwig and Henry Barren in the heavy- weight division; Meyer and Curtis in the light-heavies; Jerry Adler, George Otott, Bill Burke and Len Shepherd as middle- weights; light-weights Frank Ang, Ted Broscoe, Bill Reilly and Marty McKevitt. The first taste of competition for the Irish lifters came in the CAAU Novice meet, where Adler, Meyer and Otott showed well against experienced oppo- nents. Meyer and Adler also entered the Mid-western Intercollegiate meet where they placed well for a first-year team. With more experienced lifters, a longer schedule and University recognition, Fa- ther Lange looks for a greatly improved team for the ' 5O ' 51 season. li- V " ..V- 1 : Intramural Sports WALSH INTERHALL FOOTBALL CHAMPS: J.

The Paul Schlafly coached Walshites showed a classy T formation offense, using to good advantage the speed of backs Charlie Mauch, Jean Kreuz and Jack Courtney. Quarterback Augie Gentilucci ' s accurate passes to his dandy receiver Bucky O ' Keefe served to keep the well-balanced attack running smoothly throughout the contest. The large tough Walsh line showed its power and experience in repeatedly throwing freshman backs for losses. Walsh, a two touchdown favorite, took command of the eager freshmen almost immediately after the kickoff. After repelling a short-lived Farley thrust inside their fifteen, the seniors quickly marched to the opponent ' s five from where Charlie Mauch dashed off tackle to tally. Kreuz missed the P.A.T. attempt. A safety was added when Walsh caught a Farley back in his end zone. The seniors scored twice in the second period on a fifteen yard pass from Gentilucci to O ' Keefe and a two yard quarterback sneak by Courtney. Kreuz made one of the two attempts good. In the final stanza, the seniors broke speedy Charlie Mauch into the clear over center and he sprinted 70 yards for the final T.D.

TNTERHALL basketball teams from every hall on campus entered the two-months long tourney that ended with a final championship game in the fieldhouse at the end of the varsity season. The Sophomore halls took the lead in the tourney, with Morrissey taking the title from Cavanaugh with Lyons hall in third place. Both finalists had depth and experience with " Blackie " Johnson ' s quintet from Morrissey taking the edge in height and speed.

The finals brought together the La Raza Club of Spanish students and the squad representing the American Institute of Electrical Engineers. Both teams went undefeated into the finals, though the Spaniards suffered from lack of height in their tight semi-final games. The smooth AIEE aggregation took the final game from the South Americans due to superior height and fast-breaking spike shots that piled up an easy win margin for the Engineers. Handball TLJANK TOMCZYK captured the Interhall indi- vidual handball championship by taking the per- ennial title holder, Vince Ste. Marie, in a close final match. The tournament was held in the Rockne Memorial from January 9 to 19 with the largest entry list in the history of the tournament competing. In the hot final play-off Tomczyk took two games from Ste. Marie out of the three played, coming from behind to take the last. The scores were Tomczyk, 21-17, Ste. Marie, 21-11, Tomczyk 21-18. Don Turk captured third place in the tourney. Vince Ste.

A WELL-ROUNDED Farley hall nine captured the loosely organised interhall fall baseball tourney, winning the deciding game from another squad of first year men from St. Edward ' s Hall. With forfeits the rule rather than the exception in the early games, the league competition became nar- rowed down to the East side of the campus where the Freshmen abounded with energy. It took the Farleyites until the ninth inning of the last game of the series with St. Ed ' s to take the title. Going into the bottom of the ninth with a one-run deficit, the men from Farley tied the score at 6-6, then got up steam and added another eight runs to win the championship with a convincing 14-6 victory. Key men in the Farley lineup were Reedy, McNally and Dunne, while the pitching was capably handled by Bill Dempsey. (Left to right) First row: D. Sullivan, J. Klink, R. Lane, L. Basso, P. Dunne.

Breen- Phillips with seven and Sorin with five followed. These men, teams and individual stars alike, under the very able direction of swimming instructor Gil Burdick, have demonstrated year after year that Notre Dame could easily pool a " representative " team for intercollegiate swimming. Some day in the near future it is hoped that this may be possible. Finish line action at Interhall Meet in Rock.

Four 1949 titleholders sought to re- tain their championships against de- termined veterans and hopeful new- comers. By April 1 two champions had been toppled from their thrones, while the other pair, haggard but supreme, had managed to retain their coveted crowns. The most unexpected casualty was Zip Roemer, holder of four previous championships. The South Bender, although giving away 60 pounds to a 233-pound Gus Cifelli, ranked a slight favorite as he climbed into the ring for the last fight of the five-day festivities. Before he could unleash his lethal left, Roemer was quickly and soundly rocked by a bar- rage of blows from the footballer.

The t.k.o. stood, however, backed up by the movies and Cifelli had avenged his defeat of the previous year. Earlier in the evening, two defend- ing champions gained new laurels as they punched scrappy challengers into submission. Vic Roblez and Joe Brown had smashed through all preliminary competition in the 155 pound class with comparative ease, and the re- match of their 1949 championship was both anticipated and eagerly awaited. The Arizonian might have scored an early K.O. over Roblez had he not struck an unintentional low blow which gave the champ a much-needed five minute rest. The packed house saw the Roblez of old come back and pummel the Cavanaugh Sophomore with a bevy of rights and lefts which continued until the middle of the final round. Brown then made a last-minute bid to flatten his opponent, but the Bingham Canyon, Utah lad, display- ing his store of defensive ability, back- pedaled until the final bell. Roblez had won a unanimous decision and his second consecutive crown. Ed Smith, a Badonite from Pueblo, Colorado, had a somewhat easier time in gaining the Junior Crown of the 167 pound class from Frank Hamilton. Unknown at the early practice ses- sions, Hamilton had pounded his way through the preliminaries and the fans forecasted the possibility of an upset. The crowd-pleasing Smith didn ' t please Hamilton, however, as he displayed his speed and explosive punch to the dis- may of the challenger. A third round punch sent Hamilton to the canvas, where, at the directions of the referee, he was to take a nine count. Hamilton held his kneeling position too long and was counted out at 1:21. Thus, the physical education Junior added this trophy to last year ' s 157 pound crown. In the Senior Division of the 167 pound class, Aaron Dyson, combining a long looping right on the offense and a useful clinch on the defense, outlasted Matt Clune of Fabens, Texas. Both fighters punched furiously at the opening seconds of each round, but tired quickly and sought the bell for a welcome pause. Dyson ' s more dy- namic punches earned him a unani- mous decision and a boxing crown to match his wrestling trophy. The most punch packed and crowd pleasing match of the evening pitted Sophomore Joe O ' Brien against Sorin ' s George Briody. The Morrisseyite landed blow after vicious blow but was reluctant to take the fight to his opponent. Several powerful punches nearly disposed of Briody, but his gameness enabled him to stay up throughout the entire fight, which was awarded to O ' Brien. Resembling a cat stalking its prey, George Novotony pounded out a decisive victory over Ed Roberts in the 145 pound division. Biding his time until spotting a flaw in his opponent defenses, Novotony displayed to good advantage his fistic finesse. When the opening came he battered his opponent mercilessly. At the end of three rounds, Novotony walked off with the title and without a scar. In the opening bout of the finals diminutive Sal Fiorella eked out a split decision over Freshman Pat Ross to capture the 127 pound crown. Jit- tery over the importance of their per- formances, both fighters adopted a dancing technique during the first round. Subsequent rounds resulted in more in-fighting and revealed Fior- ella ' s supremacy. The popular New Yorker had difficulty only in warding off Ross ' s frequent bull-like charges, which drove both pugilists into a mad scramble on the ropes. Conceded only an outside chance of winning in a class dominated by George Chopp, Johnny O ' Brien bat- tered all opponents in the prelimi- naries and continued his smashing ways to win a unanimous decision over Chopp. Only Chopp ' s unlimited store of pluck enabled him to last three rounds against this opponent, who rained rights and lefts upon him. After pounding his opponent for nine full minutes, O ' Brien was crowned king of the 137 pounders. At intermission, His Excellency, Most Rev.

Editor ItaDOME 1950 " PVERY year since 1906, succeeding issues of The " - ' Dome have sought to hold up a mirror to life at Notre Dame. And with the improvements that have come in photography and the graphic arts, portraying the tangibles of the campus no longer presents much of a problem. But as difficult as ever is the attempt to capture epitomize and portray something of that tangible ingre- dient of life here which is so universally recognized as the Spirit of Notre Dame. It is something which the camera cannot frame, nor can it be contained within walls of words. Yet, in the best tradition of our predecessors, we have tried to frame it and contain it. Principally, for the refreshment of your memory, years from now, because the publication of a year book differs from all others in that the im- m ediate objective is the distant future. If your enjoyment of The Dome of 1950 increases as your memory of now- familiar scenes and faces fades, it will have served its first purpose. And this is not to say that the Staff has plotted to limit your enjoyment of it until then. All limita- tions are the Editor ' s fault; all excellence, the result of the talents and hard work of the Staff and others. For what there is of theme in this Forty-First issue of The Dome, we have looked upon the phrase you hear JAMES C. CURRAN Activities Editor H. RICHARD ROSENGARTEN Hall Editor JAMES F. KEUEHER Sports Editor so often The Spirit of Notre Dame Men and found it an abbre- viation. The full term, as we see it, is the Spirituality of Notre Dame Men. Not in a formal pietistic sense, but simply in their unswerving loyalty to Christian ideals the result of having lived life, day by day, in a city dedicated to Our Lady. It is a quality which has grown through the years and made itself felt in our country as Notre Dame men before us have con- tinued to live lives appropriate to that dedication after leaving the University. And at no time in the past has the survival and growth of this militant spirituality this Fighting Spirit of Notre Dame Men been more important than now, when the challenge of secularistic materialism is so openly set against our ideals. If the reader is aware of some of this kind of Notre Dame Spirit running through this book as a golden thread beginning with the dedication to the Holy Father in this Holy Year of 1950 and the frontispiece poem by the late Charles L. O ' Donnell, C.S.C., editor of the first Dome it will be because the Staff tried to interpret the Spirit of Notre Dame and her men in that sense. Everything else fell int o place and, in our opinion, nothing lacks the emphasis it deserves as a result of the theme, but rather is dignified by association with it. THE EDITOR CHARLES f.

Ktiitftr The SCHOLASTIC inevitable as Friday afternoon, the Scholastic L marked the passing weeks and the passing campus events with equanimity and thoroughness. Conspicu- ously lacking in this year ' s issues were baiting columnists and fearless crusades. Conspicuously present were praise and criticism of the constructive variety, attractive make- up, and campus-wide news coverage. The Scholastic was all decked out in a new cover, indicative of new blood in the editorial staff and at the moderator ' s desk. The writing was informative and thorough. The pictures were original and plentiful; and fiction graced the Scholastic ' s pages several times during the year, harking back to a pre-war policy. Features were frequent and often colorful, and the sports columnist had a football national championship to tout. A qualm in the equanimity was a duet of essays from Tom Kellaghan, a reformer with ideas and a legitimate gripe. A column called " Roughly Speaking " took over the back page, and served as a vehicle for informal com- ments on campus life by associate editor Ken Thoren. Jack McGoldrick attacked the lighter side of affairs in " The Week. " Three special issues rolled off the Ave Maria presses commemorating the football season, the basketball season, and the year in review. These issues measured up well to the standards of the past. With a new editor-in-chief at the helm and a new faculty moderator to wield a gently guiding hand, the Scholastic met worrisome press schedules and sweated out weekly deadlines. Genial, easy-going Joe Herrington filled the editor ' s chair with competence and ability, while Dale Francis held a lenient and encouraging grip on the reins from the moderator ' s office.

MEANEY Sports Editor, Second Semester When the department of Publications moved into the basement of Farley Hall early in the semester, the Scholastic tagged along. After the cramped working quarters of the old Scholastic office in Cavanaugh Hall, the new and comparatively spacious, albeit un- painted, Farley room was like an encouraging pat on the back. The Scholastic stretched its legs and kept on working. From the news-crammed pages of Fall and Winter, the magazine passed into the relative desert of Lent. Some of the issues were shorter and features had their day. With Easter and the coming of lazy Spring, news and pictures reclaimed prominence and it was easy sledding again. A number of well-known faces were absent in the second semester. Associate editor Vic Dorr and sports editor Buzz Wright took their diplomas in January, completing a long stretch of service to the magazine. First semester feature editor A. J. Scriba numbered among the half-time graduates, and more " new blood " had to be injected into the editorial ranks. It was a decidedly peaceful year for the Scholastic, and a good year. " Roughly speaking, " it was a year of equanimity and thor- oughness. (Left to right) First row: R. Blatz, J. Bolger, J. Deiss, J. Kelly. Second row: D. Carbone, F. Blanch, J. Corrigan, J. Moresco.

Bob Casurella and Bob Lowry, editors of the Juggler in 1949-50 take time to read a copy. T AST year the Juggler, Notre Dame ' s literary magazine, went on the stands for a price for the first time. And the venture proved only partially successful. This year, however, was a more successful one, and it was proven that a literary magazine could be sold. In its content as well, the Juggler matured during the past year. Its criticisms were less verbose, and more thought- ful. It delved into the field of humor with some tongue-in- cheek features in the Cap and Bells section. Its fiction, more varied and on the whole better written than that of last year ' s, showed none of the psuedo-psychologic delvings that were bait for criticism of the magazine of the imme- diately pre-war years. And in poetry, too, the Juggler showed wider and deeper interests, making the magazine a more readable and enjoyable one. Gathered together for a formal pose are the Juggler ' s editorial staff and many of its writers. Seated (left to right): R. Thompson, D. K.

Editor Notre Dame Lawyer, a quarterly law review and wholly student-edited, was founded in the Fall of 1925 and has just completed its twenty-fifth year of publication. Ranked today as one of the most highly respected law reviews in the country, the Lawyer brings to its readers articles by outstanding authorities in the legal profession, a book review and books received section, a note section containing analysis of significant legal problems, and a section devoted to up-to-the- minute coverage of important recent decisions. The Lawyer, in its anniversary volume, featured articles by such prominent men as Dr. Edward S. Corwin, noted authority on Constitutional Law, and Judge Jerome Frank, of the United States Court of Appeals. The Lawyer received the high honor this year of being selected as national headquarters of the recently formed National Association of Law Reviews, composed of more than fifty of the more prominent law reviews throughout the country. Mr. E. A. Steffen, Jr., of Indianapolis, this year ' s editor of the review, was named the first National Chairman of the Association. (Left to right): John L. Globensky (note editor), John f.

The Review of Politics HPHE problems which beset our age grow more and more complex, as does the age itself, and there is a crying need for organs in which thinking men can express the basic truths which seem to become more and more clouded. Such an organ is Notre Dame ' s Review of Politics. Among its past contributors, the quarterly review can boast of having had the finest of the world ' s contemporary Christian scholars men who can see deeper into the present confusion, who can see and express the need for a Christian system of values. The Review fulfills its function so well, that it has been recognized nationally, and praised by such men as Jacques Maritain, Walter Lippman and Cardinal Stritch. The Dome wishes to add its name to this im- pressive list and, in its small way, add to the praise. The staff at work. Rev.

A professional looking layout, informative, well- written articles embracing technology on land, sea, and in the air, and excellent photographs, both of giant industrial works throughout the world and of campus scenes involving engineering principles, help make this magazine one of the leaders in its field despite its youth. Serving as editor on the maiden voyage of this venture was William J. Ruoff. Dean Karl E. Schoenherr of the College of Engineering was faculty advisor. Page 274 Rev. Richard J. Grimm, C.S.C. Prefect of Religion. Editor Part of the crowd attending May Devotions held each evening at the Grotto. The Religious Bulletin ID ACH afternoon during the school year a mimeo- graphed sheet of paper is deposited at the door of every student; that is how the Religious Bulletin comes into the life of the Notre Dame man. The subject matter of the Bulletin is quite varied. It may deal with the students them- selves, with alumni, with friends, or it may just be a story. But one thing is constant, and that is the aim of the Bulletin, which is to show the student how to live a Catholic life. He is shown how to avoid the natural temptations of a college student, and how to turn to the patron of the school. Our Lady, for guidance and inspiration of his daily life. Fr. Richard Grimm, C.S.C., is the author of these Religious Bulletins in his capacity as Prefect of Religion. In the old days, when Notre Dame was a smaller school, the Prefect of Religion used to be able to have personal chats with the boys, but the size of the enrollment now makes that impossible. The Religious Bulletin is Fr. Grimm ' s chat, and most of the boys take it to heart. It is one of the things which fosters the spirit of Notre Dame. Two students stop to pay their respects to Our Lady at the Grotto. Page 27? ALUMNUS Mr. John Burns, managing editor of the Alumnus, looking over some pictures for the next issue. Mr. William R.

These magazines aim at keeping Notre Dame Alumni and friends aware of the needs and news of the University, and though seldom seen by students, they are making possible the im provement of Notre Dame ' s educational facilities. Written and edited in the Alumni office, they contain articles and editorials concerning the his- toric and more recent roles that Notre Dame has played in the development of better Christians and citizens. Mr. James E. Armstrong, editor of Notre Dome, checks a story. Mr. John N. Cackley, Jr., associate editor of Notre Dame plans the layout for a forthcoming issue. NOTRE DAME The American Midland Naturalist Dr. John Mizelle [ORE technical than most, but certainly on a par with such well known Notre Dame publications as the Review of Politics, is the American Midland Naturalist. The magazine, founded by Notre Dame ' s famous Rev. Julius A. Nieuwland. C.S.C., is now under the editorship of Dr. John Mizzelle. Although it is known to most Notre Dame students by hearsay only, due to the highly specialized quality of its contents, the American Midland Naturalist is nevertheless a pace-setter in its field, and is recognized and respected as being one of the best publications in the field of natural science.

Notre Dame ' s Pan-American Union holds its first meeting. Registration ant 1DESEMBLING a snake dance in slow motion, a Inn-. single line crossed and recrossed the Drill Hall floor last September 12. It was the first day of registration, and most of the 1406 freshmen were on hand. During the next two days the line was somewhat shorter and faster moving, as the experienced upper-classmen returned to the familiar grind. Everyone filled out census cards, posed for identifica- tion photos, and picked up such all ' important items as meal tickets, laundry card, athletic certificate, and class schedule. all in one simple procedure. The line was long, but it was the only one or thought the unsuspecting, until they encountered the hook store queue a few days later. Nevertheless, once inside the bookstore annex, they found no line at all. Instead the melee looked more like a bargain-counter sale. In October, Father Thornton ' s office announced the regis- tration tally. Total enrollment, including 420-odd graduate students, was officially 4,968. As usual, the freshman class was largest, although the sophomores numbered only 200 or so less. The 870 some seniors surpassed the junior popu- lation by more than a hundred. These figures do not include the 300 members of the College of Law. Approximate enrollment in the other colleges included 1400 men in Commerce, 1300 A.B. men, 1000 engineers, and 500 in Science. While all these statistics were being compiled, the student Pat Coughlin looks so grim and Law School hadn ' t even started yet. Orientation . . . Office Tom Carroll, Bob Slocum, " Sparky " Thornton.

Within a month after registration, the cards were ready. Then came the shock of seeing one ' s picture. A sizable photo- graphic rogues gallery could have been composed from the many murderous sneers and contorted grimaces that some- how managed to develop from the blank stares and cherubic smiles evident when the pictures were taken. Freshman Orientation Perhaps the powers-that-be see these angry grimaces every year, and have decided that the best cure for the attitudes apparent in the new men is an orientation program. At least it is a plausible reason. And so the freshmen have arranged for them such activities as guided tours of the campus (later they are given maps to refresh their memo- ries) and smokers. After this smoker, the first of the many which they will no doubt attend during their college careers, the freshmen are almost full-fledged members of the Notre Dame student body. But there is one more activity for them to participate in ... the inevitable movie, Knute Rockne, All A merican is shown to all freshmen on the night before classes start. After seeing the film, it is assured that they will be instilled with the feeling of Notre Dame and that they are fully prepared to meet the greatest of ordeals, the first class on the following morning. Even the extra-curri- cular angle is cared for by the arranging of a frosh picnic, which is held in conjunction with St. Mary ' s College, and the two local Catholic girl ' s academies. At the end of the orientation program it is assured that the freshmen are here to stay. A stylish picnic. Coat and tie, radio and all ...

Frank Leahy ' s sobering simplicity; Jim Martin ' s all-pervading confi- dence; Mel Allen, long-time New York Yankee protagonist, proclaim- ing his conversion to the Irish cause; Father Joe Barry ' s sincere charge to the student body; Col. Marty Galvin ' s interpretation of a North Carolina scout; the return of the Four Horse- men. It is impossible to list all these things and properly describe them. Therefore we must leave to memories fine memories the recounting of these affairs. Dillon Hall wins the decoration award, depicting Leahy ' s classroom. LSHZ. Constituting chairman Schoen ' s capable committee were Tom Magee, Walter McGovern, Thomas Kennedy, and Theodore O ' Malley. The Victory dances were packed and happy every Saturday through- out the football season. The Student Coucil did an excellent job of pro- viding good danceable music to the strains of Gene Hull and his orche- stra while buses were available to students with dates from St. Mary ' s. What more need be said? Gene Hull gives his band the beat. Crowds such as this gathered at the Navy Drill Hall each Saturday throughout the fall.

After instructions by Miss Aarons, Phy Ed teacher at St. Mary ' s, even the city slickers began to catch on to the quadrilles and the promenading. The informal affair was fun for all, as Levis, plaid shirts and yellow cords were the order of the day for the men-folk, and the gals were decked out in a strictly casual style. The final round of figures found a tired but happy crowd of yokels winding up the night in real hoe- down spirit.

But even though the 700-odd Notre Dame students and band members who made the Student Trip to New York for the North Carolina game may have been somewhat engulfed by the big city, they were certainly not disappointed by it, for, as the boys shivered and yawned and stretched their ways off the train early on Monday morning, a cold, misty November morning, they all agreed those that were wide awake enough to talk that they had had an enjoyable time indeed. When they left for the metropolis Friday afternoon, the llth, they were a slightly more vociferous aggrega- tion; in fact, one might have called them " high spirited. " But it was understandable that they should have been subdued at the end of the week-end, for they had had plenty of opportunities to expend their energies. First of these, of course, had been the game itself. It was a rugged and exciting battle for almost three periods; a game that left the spectators, as well as the players, limp at the end. And before and after the game there had been Chow time; reminds one of the caf. Victory March on wheels. Bud Herr organizes Mike brings back the Confederate battle flag " Who wants to recapture it? " so much to do and see in so relatively little time that it was really a wonder that the Trippers had been able to decide where to start. But judging from the stories that began circulating around campus after the boys had recovered from the return trip, the Notre Dame contingent had somehow managed to cover Manhattan pretty thoroughly, col- lectively and individually. One fellow, it was said, hap- pened to board the wrong ferry. He covered New Jersey, also. But he came back satisfied and happy, as did all of his companions. It had been a very successful trip.

POURING the week preceding the Christmas vacation, the University Theater presented its second pro duction of the semester, a light comedy by Philip Barry entitled " Holiday. " Despite many trials and tribulations in rehearsal, including the coal strike which forced the cast into overcoats, the troupe acquitted itself notably well. Most of those who attended agreed it was the best campus offering to date. The story itself is a rather fast-moving, light-hearted romance which involves one Johnny Case (Jim Maher), who picks up fifty G ' s on the stock market in what is commonly known as a " killing. " His care-free decision to retire from the rat-race and spend while still young causes his prospective father-in-law (Larry McDermott), a man who can smell a loose dollar in an onion patch, to somewhat blow tubes.

WINTER on the campus NOTRE DAM SENIOR BALI HPHE last page of a four year scholastic career ended brilliantly for the January graduates of the University of Notre Dame, for it was written in music.

THjEFYING a threatening blizzard of ' sunshine, and with the warm winds howling dangerously about them, three hundred courageous Notre Dame men braved a snowless January afternoon and invaded St. Mary ' s campus for the annual Winter Carnival. In keeping with the weather the coeds presented a far-from- frigid reception and set about disproving that itsnow fun without snow. The gaily decorated LeMans Hall became an en- chanted Swiss Chalet, and the casual in- formality of ski shirts and sweaters added to the festive mood. Many couples found Canasta an exciting indoor sport for the afternoon, while others were content to Who fell through the ice? Nobody, it ' s just an open fire. simply relax and enjoy their day away from the books chatting with their friends.

Taking advantage of a beautiful mid-winter evening, the men took time to forget the scientific advances of the modern age and to slip romantically back into the days of the Beginning of Engineering at Notre Dame 1897. The dreamy melodies of the Bud Simpson and Ted Gallagher dance bands made Cupid ' s Theory of Love a sentimental substitute for Newton ' s Laws of Physics, and the classe room cares were easily forgotten. The smartly-decorated Palais Royale re- sounded notes of happiness as the couples chatted gaily or harmonized on some of the " good old tunes.

An annual affair, the Mask Ball was capably run this year by general chairman Claire DeCrane, who had signed Gene Hull ' s five-man combo to supply the music. Awards were given for the most original, the most clever and appealing costumes. Winning the " origin- ality " honors were Margaret Grignon and Bob Hoff, while the funniest costumes were worn by Mary Caryl Cash and Joe Straub. Laurie McCauley and Peter Green, dressed as a belle of the " Gay ' 90 ' s " and a Spanish- American war officer, won prizes for having the most appealing outfits.

" ORE-LENTEN festivities reached their traditional cli- rriax with the Mardi Gras Dance. The Palais Royale Ballroom for one evening was as every bit Southern as New Orleans. Featured was a tremendous paddlewheeler reminiscent of Mississippi River days, complete with cotton bales, mammies and even a Southern skipper. The 16-foot Natchez cast i ts shadow across a blue shoreline right out of Dixie. Hundreds of balloons, crepe- paper, and gaudy trimmings helped the dancers lose themselves in a mood of gaity which rivaled that of New Orleans ' " Society Uptown. " Dress was semi-formal according to the Southern custom and the casual Con- federates extended their hospitality to the Union. Miss Rosemary Stapleton of Sturgis, Michigan and a Junior at St. Mary ' s College was escorted by Frank Crovo and reigned as queen along with Miss Dora Brooks Smoot of DePauw University and Washington, Indiana. Miss Smoot was the date of Jim Hennessy. " Colonel " Bob Lewis and his orchestra contributed their soft, slow, and dreamy music for the gala occasion, which saw the Union preserved through the easy rhythm. Proceeds from the dance under the sponsorship of the Junior Class went into the Student Charity Fund. It was an evening well spent in preparation for the somber Lenten season. Over 500 couples dance to mellow strains. Jim O ' Donnell and Jane Anne Fries. fl m Everyone wants to get into the act. Mardi-Gras Carnival doubt the successful 1950 Mardi Gras Carnival will always be remembered as the carnival at which glamorous Ann Blyth came, saw, and conquered the hearts of Notre Dame men. Miss Blyth ' s appearance on the final nisjht, climaxed the two day Student Council ' NFCCS affair held in a colorful Navy Drill Hall. Miss Blyth drew the winner of the Buick Riviera, visited several of the booths, and joined with the Glee Club in singing several numbers. But there was more to keep the crowd busy and happy as the throngs at the various booths will attest. The wheels of chance, the dice games, refreshment booths and dancing gave everyone a chance to enjoy himself while aiding charity. And the cause of charity was well supported as the $10,000 given to foreign student relief, and the $5505.10 placed in the Student Council Charity Fund from the carnival receipts and the car raffle show. The affair had the usual carnival blare of eager barkers and milling crowds presenting a gay and noisy atmos- phere. The committeemen, the participating campus clubs, and the Blue Circle have reason, indeed, to be proud of the social and financial success of this tre- mendous student undertaking.

This three act comedy by Emmet Lavery was generally acclaimed as the top student production of the year in Washington Hall, but the campus has seen better plays by poorer casts. The story revolved around Stephen Socrates Christopher, a shady character who was elected to Congress. The plot lay in his attempts to go straight. Lou Garippo, noted campus thespian, was excellent in the title role. Female leads were very capably handled by Virginia White, Ann Gullie, and Phoebe Stapleton. In other supporting roles were Doug Robertson, Larry McDermott, Alfred Wood, John Schneller and Mickey Carroll. Mr. Francis J. Hanley of the Department of Art was the director. Said Ken Thoren in the Scholastic, " The cast, the direc- tion, the lighting, the entire production everything was fine. The only fault with the presentation was the play itself.

This was a strictly barn-yard style soiree, a countrified fling that transformed Ye Olde Palais into a Paul Bunyan- scale Grange Hall. Although it was ostensibly their night to howl the Sophs genially invited one and all (provided of course one had the necessary long green knocking around in his knickers) to jine the fracas. Music by an authentic rube, if names mean anything, was provided by Jesse Sneider ' s Fodder-filled Four. For the relief and comfort of those Gotham grown innocents to whom the jigs and reels were indistinguishable from Maori war-dances an expert caller was on hand.

We were there that night that lovely night of Knights. We saw the stately gentlemen escort their charming princesses into the ballroom. So debonair were they, and their ladies so graceful. Suits of black and gorgeous gowns trans- formed the night into that majestic age of long ago. Time stood still as the mellow shadows silhouetted gal- lant knights waltzing tenderly with the lovely maidens of their choice. Suddenly the clock chimed one, and enchantment was gone. With perfect dignity they de- parted, leaving us and our Erskine Country Club home in the serene stillness of the night. Who are we? Why we ' re a set of golf clubs that sat unnoticed in the lobby.

(T )N the night of May 6th, the budding barristers of the Notre Dame Law School honored their graduating seniors at the annual spring Law Ball, held this year at the Erskine Park Country Club. As somewhat of an inno- vation the dance was held in conjunction with the Senior Banquet of the young lawyers. The banquet was given at the Oliver Hotel the night before, and launched a very busy but pleasant week-end for them. Instead of bids, writs of attachement were issued, which was one of the details helping to make the event so successful. Miss Virginia Koschnick, a St. Mary ' s College Senior from Indianapolis, Indiana, reigned as queen of the ball. She was escorted by dance chairman Ed Coleman. John Panelli served as arrangements chairman for the dance; publicity chairman was Dick Cullen, and George Brady was music chairman. The decorations were ably ex- ecuted by Vincent Cunningham and Armand D ' Agonstino. Ed Coleman congratulates his date, queen of the ball, Virginia Koschnick.

To the juniors this phrase could suggest but one meaning, for with spring comes the long-awaited high light of the year the Junior Prom. It was on a beautiful April evening that the juniors gathered at the Palais Royale to fulfill their dreams. Al- though the colorful decorations presented the theme of April Showers, the handsome couples romantically dis- proved the proverbial " I get the blues when it rains " and danced the potentially dismal atmosphere into a starlit paradise. About the ballroom couples chatted gaily, while others mystically transformed the " Blue Moon " of Jimmy Palmer ' s dance band into one of gold. From the dimly lighted balcony overlooking the dance floor another group of promgoers Marty O ' Connor and Joyce Renfro. Why not let a smile be Your umbrella? were seen talking quietly, sipping cokes, and holding hands. Waltzing gracefully to the lovely " We ' re Just a Kiss Apart, " more than one couple found themselves all to hopefully dreaming that such a night would never end. But with the closing moments was formed a wonderful memory of April Showers of happiness that was not to fade with the melody. The following day brought with it some overdue sunshine and the excitement of a freshmen-varsity football scrim- mage. The Monogram dance in the evening highlighted another glorious day. Mass in Sacred Heart Church Sunday morning brought a reluctant but fitting close to a perfect weekend. But to the juniors it will long remain far more than another dance weekend at Notre Dame.

Student Council Dance an innovation this year, a series of three dances was leld during the Spring semester on those Saturday nights not conflicting with other campus activities. Sponsored by the Student Council, these dances were intended to give the Notre Dame students something to do on week-ends besides attending the local cinemas. They were actually a continuation of the Fall Victory dances, but were held in the Palais Royale downtown instead of the Drill Hall. Gene Hull and his fine orchestra again provided the music, and Verne Kelley, senior representative on the Student Council, was manager of the affairs. The bids were priced at only $1.50, and all agreed that these dances provided the least expensive and most enter- taining Saturday nights possible in South Bend.

Over 300 of the ambitious under- classmen " went native " in the Palais Royale Ballroom which had been converted into a tropical Pacific paradise. Soothing music, fitting the occasion, was provided by Chuck Granger and his orchestra, with vocals well- handled by the enchanting Peggy Cummins. Added to this was the singing of several hit tunes from South Pacific by Roy O ' Neill of the Notre Dame Glee Club. Miss Nancy Friel of Pleasant Ridge, Michigan, and Denison University was queen for the evening. She was escorted by Dance Chairman Brian Kelly of Farley Hall and Lansing, Michigan. Further week-end entertainment was provided for the Freshmen and their dates on Saturday afternoon when they witnessed a scrimmage by coach Frank Leahy ' s gridders.

" Se nior Ball " Dancing in the Dark " HPHE social climax to every Notre Dame year is indis- putably the week-end of the Senior Ball, and this year was no exception. As the twelfth-night of May rushed on apace, American Tel. 6? Tel. could report a tremendous upsurge in long-distance calls from Sorin, Walsh, Howard and Dillon (listed in the order of venerability) . And as the bids were hopefully mailed on their way to dear hearts and gentle people from Me. to Cal., a prominent tipster in Sorin posted daily odds in the Date Derby, including past performances. With the train strike the odds soared. Ne ' er the less, by Friday morning the gals began to pour in in pleasing numbers, to the extent that many a man was wont to lay aside his tomes and turn to natural philosophy on the greensward. To the tinkle of a nearby player-piano the Seniors and their ladies made the first rounds of Grotto, Church and Dome: the familiar scenes that had never seemed quite so interesting before. At ten p.m. the crowds began to pour into the Drill Hall, whose phenomenal transformation into an ephemeral Palladium could be credited to the hard work of perhaps two dozen spirited students. The theme for the night was " Dancing in the Dark " ; the music by that renowned and reformed bopper, Charlie Ventura, complete with saxo- Kay Justin and Mike Judge dip in the dark.

Campus Organizations Student Council . . . the second year, Notre Dame ' s Student Council ran under the power supplied by its new constitution, and showed signs of renewed life. The Council ' s biggest spurt of energy gave birth to the plan for a Campus Charity Chest. Although the plan is still being for- mulated, the purpose of the Chest would be to relieve the individual student of the burden of contributions to outside agencies. And, at the same time, the Chest would assume the burden and thus act as charitable institution. The Council sponsored the annual student trip, this year made to New York, where the Irish met North Carolina on the field in Yankee Stadium. Although there were only forty-eight hours to spend in the big city, the time was jam-packed with activities which included, among others, a pep rally at Times Square, the game, a Met Club party and various other celebra- tions throughout the city. Realizing that there were too many Saturday nights whe n all a guy and his date could do was sit through the double-feature at the Granada, the Council in- augerated the new Student Council dances, which made three Saturday nights much more pleasant. (Left to Right): W. F. Anhut (secretary), W. L. Kirchner, Jr. (president), R. E. Skull (treasurer). If one adds to this list the fact that the Council, in conjunction with NFCCS, sponsored the Mardi Gras and added $5,000 to the Charity Chest and that it spon- sored the class elections, the increasing importance and potentiality of the Student Council becomes apparent.

It is dedicated to inculcate in all students the spirit, customs and traditions of the University, and aids the Council in promoting student activities. The Circle was officially founded in 1924 and functioned until 1931. Since its reorganization in 1946 by the Council the group has promoted and assisted in innumerable activ- ities for the benefit of student and University. One of the largest and most successful undertakings was the orientation program for freshman in September. This three day affair, operated in conjunction with YCS, aided the students in assimilating their new environment by organizing tours, addresses by University officials and mixers. Another Fall activity, competently handled, was the pep rallies, which were the best in several years. The Circle members also worked behind the scenes in many activities such as ushering, issuing tickets, guiding groups around the campus and in helping at the Mardi Gras carnival. Admission procedure was rearranged this year, and the Student Council chooses the members from a carefully screened list of applicants submitted by the Circle. Page 323 Debate Club . .

" PORMING a major cog in Notre Dame ' s efforts to demonstrate its proficiency in matters intellectual as well as athletic, the Notre Dame varsity Debate team carried the colors of the Blue and Gold some 10,000 miles, engaged in approximately 108 debates, winning 90, and emerged with two national titles. President Bill Carey won the National TKA Extempo- raneous Speaking title at Lexington, Ky., and followed this up with a decisive victory margin at the West Point tourney, being named the nation ' s outstanding individual debater. As a team, Notre Dame notched victories at Iowa, rep- resenting conquests over the mid-west ' s best, won the Boston National Invitational tournament trophy and fin- ished third at Eau Claire, Wisconsin ' s speech meet, one of the northwest ' s outstanding events. The Irish arguers again stepped into the winner ' s circle at the National Tau Kappa Alpha tournament held this year at the University of Kentucky. This represented the championship of the country ' s largest debate fraternity, whose membership includes almost four-hundred American colleges and universities. Notre Dame ' s duo of Dempsey and Carey highlighted the spring season by being voted the outstanding negative team represented at Georgetown University ' s " Cherry Blossom " tournament at Washington, D. C. The year ' s climax was the selection of the Notre Dame team as a participant in the National Championship tourney at West Point. Although the Irish entry was eliminated in the quarter-finals, the annexing of the National Indi- vidual title provided a fitting denouement to the most suc- cessful season within memory. To Mr. Leonard Sommer of the Speech department goes considerable credit for this year ' s showing. His able coach- ing and ability to engender cooperation form two cardinal reasons for the forensic achievements which were Notre Dame ' s in 1949-1950. (Left to Right) FIRST ROW: j Bellon, T.

Wranglers YN celebrating their Silver Anniversary this year, the Wranglers have a right to be proud of their history and traditions. As the oldest student organization at the University, they can look back upon a quarter-century of intellectual companionship in which high standards of membership and discussion were rigidly maintained. Each week, a paper is prepared by one of the Wranglers on some topic of general interest economics, philosophy, politics or art. The caliber of the intense discussion that follows is the reason why the Wranglers are probably the most select, as well as the oldest, campus club. Membership may not exceed 20 at any time, and new applicants are carefully interviewed, screened and tested before acceptance. Now in his 10th year as moderator of the Wranglers is Professor Frank O ' Malley, who is the principal speaker at the solemn, formal banquets held periodically by the group. One of the highlights of 1949-50 was a special anni- versary dinner, attended by alumni who took part in Wrangler activities as undergraduates here. Page 325 Dick Cullen and Fr.

Knights of Columbus A LL councils, Notre Dame included, have a common - -program of religious, charitable, and patriotic activities. But Council 1477 has its own brand of special activities and everyone on campus knows some of them. The Bengal Bouts which contribute gen- erously each year to the Bengal missions in India is but one of these. This year the Most Reverend Bernard J. Sheil, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago re- ceived the Bengal Bout Recognition Award for his contribution to the youth of that city chiefly through the Sheil House which he established for underpriv- ileged children, and his work in the Catholic Youth Organization. The Knights of Notre Dame have similarly taken an active part in the campus-wide clothing drives for the needy of Europe. Also the funds have gone toward the support of the Gibault Boys Home, a Boys-Town type of institution run by the Holy Cross congregation in Terre Haute, Indiana. Under the able leadership of Grand Knight Robert Noonan the Council has enthusiastically sponsored Communion Breakfasts and other spiritual activities such as the monthly Adorations have been stimulated through their cooperation with the prefects of re- ligion. The innumerable smokers and get-togethers, the successful spring picnic, and the fall formal will testify to the social accomplishments of an organiza- tion which has won the respect of the University. The Knights have instilled into their meetings and activities the continuance of Catholic spiritual and social ideals. The Knights of Columbus as an instru- ment of Catholic Action are an integral part of the University of Notre Dame which is grateful for this spirit and cooperation.

National Federation of Catholic College Students E. G. Farrell (junior delegate), A. C. Frericks (regional Liturgy Commission chairman), W. F. Kirchner, Jr. (Chicago regional first vice president), J. F. Garvin (senior delegate). HPHE National Federation of Catholic College Students Council at Notre Dame showed a revitalized spirit during the activity-studded year of ' 49- ' 50. The coopera- tion of the members of the council made possible the successfully sponsored nation-wide Buick Riviera raffle and Mardi Gras Carnival which highlighted their efforts. Both of these ventures made possible a contribution of 10,000 dollars to Foreign Student relief. With a surplus of 6,000 dollars the N.F.C.C.S. was able to establish the Notre Dame Charity which will go into effect during the coming school year. The fine cooperation in the Council was demonstrated in the interest and efforts to cooperate with brother-councils throughout the country. In April, Notre Dame was repre- sented at the National N.F.C.C.S. Congress, in the William Pitt Hotel, Pittsburg, Pa. The delegation consisting of Ed Farrell, Bill Kirschner, Art Frisicks, Jim Garvin and Don Carbone figured prominently at the Congress as well as at the meetings which were held at various colleges through- out the Chicago area. Due to the fact that delegates are appointed to the N.F.C.C.S. by the Student Council, there was an active interest between the two organizations in putting their combined efforts to good work. Future plans for the N.F.C.C.S. include coordination of all Council affiliated organizations with a view to promoting common objectives. Father McDonald and Ann Blyth who was guest of honor at the Mardi-Gras Carnival sponsored by the N.F.C.C.S. and the Student Council. Commerce Forum . REALIZING that the scope of classroom activities is not always broad enough to meet all the requirements for the formation of the well-rounded college man, Commerce students organized a Forum in 1928 in order to attain more of these goals. Formerly the organization was open to all commerce students, but to prevent the group from becoming unwieldy, a membership limit of thirty men was instituted. These men are chosen on the basis of their academic record and a personal interview by the officers. This interview checks on the applicant ' s awareness of the world about him and his desire to improve intellectually. At its bi-weekly meetings the Forum provides an excel- lent outlet for students who desire to acquire experience in presenting papers on a variety of subjects. And in the discussion period following, the ability to defend one ' s position and the faculty to express one ' s self is nurtured. The social aspects are not neglected, however, and the numerous Forum banquets and smokers are noted for their informality. The Commerce faculty keeps in close contact with the Forum and the exchange of ideas between the two groups is frequent, and extremely beneficial to both. Once again, the highlight on the Forum agenda was the annual trip sponsored by Mr. James Gerity, Jr. of the J. F. Slattery (program chairman), R. H. Brodeur (secre- tary), L. J. Mustico (president), Mr. Thomas Bergin, J. Bodolay (vice president), (missing). Gerity-Michigan Corporation. During a two day tour of industrial Michigan, they visited several plants including Mr. Gerity ' s Adrian plant and the Oldsmobile plant in Lansing, where they were also tendered a banquet by plant officials.

This cosmopolitan group gathers to have a sociable and intellectual evening, to enjoy a pleasant meal down- town and to discuss a topic relevant to the economic, political or social sphere. When the evening is over the members return to their student life once more. Behind this outline of the Economic Round Table is found one of the more active organizations on the Notre Dame campus. The beginning of each semester finds a group of men gathering together to plan the activities for the four months ahead. One of the foremost problems confronting the group is to find new members who meet the membership requirements of an 85 average and a knowledge of current economic, political and social develop- ments. Then, too, there is the problem of selecting a guest speaker, usually a member of the faculty, to give a talk at one of the discussions. Some of the things which occupy the clubs ' time and give the members something distinctive to look forward to are the meetings each semester with a group from St. Mary ' s College. On this occasion the members are given the opportunity to learn of the women ' s views on current problems. Another interesting event is the attendance at the Mid-West International Relations Club Conference. Graduates of the University who have been members of the club invariably express the conviction that the activities of the club have been most beneficial to them in their capacities as students.

E Inter-American Affairs Club was organized by a group of Notre Dame students with three objectives in mind: The promotion of good feeling among the Amer- ican peoples; the promotion of better acquaintanceship among the members of the American nations and their populations; and to promote friendship among Notre Dame students interested in inter- American affairs. During the school year of ' 49- ' 50 the club held bi-monthly meetings, having a guest speaker for each meeting. The speaker usually was one of the Latin-American members of the club who delivered a short talk on his respective country. In November the club, together with several campus clubs and one organization from St. Mary ' s, held a panel discussion on " Inter-Regionalism before Universalism. " This discussion was a preparation for the discussion held later at Mundelein College. The second major project of the club was the attending of the sixth Annual Conference in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe at Mundelein College in Chicago. Over twenty- five colleges in the tri-state region were represented at this conference. In May, six club members represented the Notre Dame club at the seventh Tri-Regional Inter- American Congress at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. And on May seventeenth the club held an annual banquet at the Ramble Inn. Election of officers for next year took place at this function. WND OTAND by in studio A ... You ' re on the - air! . . . This is WND, the student voice of Notre Dame, bringing you station high lights of the season. Expansion was the key word at WND this year. Making use of remodeled and newly-purchased equipment the enlarged WND staff has greatly extended operations for your listening pleasure. In addition to recorded popu- lar and classical music, student talent shows, and numerous campus activities, WND has ampli ' fled its scope, bringing you dances and sport events from South Bend and Chicago.

A M E Young Christian Students CS Young Christian Students is a specialized move- ment in Catholic Action, being the result of the application of the principles of Jocism to the American University. Fr. Louis J. Puts, C.S.C., organized YCS at Notre Dame ten years ago and it has since spread through- out the U. S. and Canada. Young Christian Workers and the Christian Family Movement are other specialized move- ments which apply Jocist principles to their milieus. The aim of Catholic Action is the re-Christianization of the world. YCS is a specialized movement in the student world aiming at the re-Christianization of student life. The four goals of YCS are to make the students aware of: student responsibilities, the student community, social re- sponsibility, the need of preparation for vocation. The method used is to bring a small group of students together who have common interests and problems. By careful observation of a problem, judgment in the light of Christian principles as to what can be done to solve the problems, and finally, acting, the group works to better the student environment. The action taken is of two kinds, institutional and personal. The first is the group action establishing an in- Gene Myler (secretary), William Rich (president), Frank Hannigan (vice president). Jerry Soden (treasurer). stitution which will solve the problems. Examples of some institutions established by YCS with help from others are: The Book Exchange, the Campus Press, the Speech Work- shop, the various means of helping the student choose his major or plan his course, a survey to see whether an off- campus employment bureau is necessary, retreats to such places as the Trappist Monstery, Gethsemani, a bulletin for Chaplains in Catholic Action called Anima, Rapport, a bulletin with student articles on questions of student interest, lectures on study and dating, freshman mixers, and a student-professor seminar. More important to YCS, however, is the development of its members as Apostles. It is by the formation of men who have an awareness of problems and their responsibility to solve them, and men who are able to solve problems that YCS succeeds.

LEE HOPE Wnctor The Notre Dame Band HPHE University of Notre Dame Bands have had a busy year, 1949- ' 50, as usual. At the opening of school in the fall, some 1 50 players reported for band. One hundred and ten upper classmen were selected for Maching Band, and the rest, mostly Freshmen, were placed in the Varsity Band. After the football season, 60 players were selected to make up the Concert Band, and the balance of the players were returned to the Varsity Band list. The Bands made 54 appearances during the year: nine football rallies, one football welcome and parade in South Bend, five foot- ball games, nine basketball games, one track meet, five miscellaneous appearances including dinners and commencement, and 24 concerts of which four were played on the campus and 20 on tour. Also ensembles from the band appeared for five performances before women ' s clubs, the Progress Club, and other organizations. The Marching Band presented the first season-long continuity ever to be presented by any college band. The series was entitled " Our Hoosier Heritage " and dramatized the high points of Indiana WILLIAM ENSIGN, Drum Major THOMAS GOODPASTER, Student JIM CLARKE, Announcer LEE Di Director HOPE ector WILLIAM MacMILLAN, President DAVID O ' LEARY, Vice President JOHN McVEIGH, Secretary HENRY KETTERER, Librarian TED STELTEN, Freshman Drum Major Flutes and Piccolos : H.

The Marching Band de- veloped a novel field entrance routine based on a fanfare and the " Notre Dame Hike Song, " and featured a " shuffle-kick " marching step as well as precision marching maneuvers. The Marching Band traveled to New York for the North Carolina game; the show in Yankee Stadium featured precision chorus-line dancing and a square dance. The Varsity Band handled the bulk of rally and basketball game appearances. The Concert Band appeared in Indi- anapolis twice, at Marian College and at the American Legion of Stars show. Two concerts were presented in Muskegon, Michigan. The annual Easter Concert Tour took the Band 3000 miles through Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa and Indiana for a total of 16 concerts. The highlight of the Concert Band season was the annual Spring Con- cert in the Navy Drill Hall before 3000 people. Yes, the Bands have had a busy season.

That just goes to show you what a little bit of publicity and an awful lot of talent will do for an organisation. Under the watchful eye of Prof. Daniel H. Pedtke, the Notre Dame vocal group has developed into one of the better collegiate musical organisations. Proof of their reputation and ability is to be found by checking the attendance records of the concerts given by them during their two cross-country trips. Between semesters the Glee club sang to packed houses throughout the south- west, and at Easter time they went east, appearing on Ed Sullivan ' s television show, the Toast of the Town as well as receiving praise for their performance in Town Hall. The Glee club is one of the few things that mellow with age, and even better things can be expected of them in future years. Our praise and best-wishes go to Notre Dame ' s ambassadors of good will.

Modern costumes spiced famous drama. Much Ado About Nothing PRESENTED by the Concert and Lecture Series, the Catholic University Players gave a good account of themselves in their production of Much Ado About Nothing. Shakespeare ' s rollicking tale of love ' s frustra- tions and gifts. This play, long ignored by the contemporary theatre, was performed three times during the Players ' stay at Notre Dame on the seventh and eighth of December. The biting tongue of Beatrice, smartly handled by Teddy Marie Kinney as she tore into the supreme egotist, Benedik, was cheered by the usually critical frequentees of Wash- ington Hall. Bill Callahan, the Benedik of this production, was seemingly well suited for his role, spilling his self-confidence over into the audience and thereby creating great sympathy for himself. This enterprise has proved, indeed, to all those partakers, that Much Ado is among the Bard ' s best. And much credit is a-due to Catholic University for its fine efforts in the theatre. Julius Caesar HPHE Ides of November saw the Margaret Webster company of Shakespearian troupers present Julius Caesar at Washington Hall before a packed house. SRO conditions were fully justified by the stage-craft of the professionals, who used the simplest prop- erties and contemporary dress, combined with superb characterizations, to produce a star- tling effect. Frederic Rolf, in the title role, truly lived and died the part of the great conqueror beyond commentary. Particularly of note among the others in the cast were David Lewis ' portrayal of the sincere Brutus, and Kendall Clark, as the smooth-talking, power hungry Anthony. Use of modern dress, particularly in the military uniforms reminiscent of the late Nazi hierarchy, served to impress upon the audi- ence the necessary similarity of all tyranny and tyrants, regardless of the period in which they are in operation. The consensus of opinion held the scenes at the Forum and on the plains of Phillipe to be the most affecting. It was a professional job, all in all, and it was professionally done. Catholic University Players ' production of Shakespeare ' s " Much Ado About Nothing " reaches a serio-comic climax as Claudio falsely accuses Hero of being unfaithful. Symposium on Russia speakers were (Left to right), Standing: Dr. Jasny, Dr. Kertesz, Dr. Dvornik, Dr. Gorian, Dr. Petrov. Seated: Drs. Timasheff, Karpovitch, Mosely. Soviet Symposium THE newly initiated Committee on International Affairs of the University of Notre Dame publicly demonstrated its importance when it presented, in February, a symposium by leading experts on Soviet Russia. The Reverend John J. Cavanaugh, C.S.C., Chairman of the Committee, capably assisted by Dr. Waldemar Gurian, Professor of Political Science at Notre Dame and world- famous expert on Soviet affairs, introduced as the topic " Soviet Union; its Background, Ideology and Reality. " It was a subject which fired the discussion for two days. Dr. Gurian himself traced the general policies of the U.S.S.R. " from Lenin to Stalin, " after which Michael Karpovich of Harvard traced the concurrent growth of " Soviet Thought Control. " Communistic infiltration by utili- zation of petty conflicts was discussed by Stephan Kertesz of Yale, and Phillip E. Mosely, Head of the Russian Institute at Columbia University. The latter two gentlemen made their words graphic by demonstrating the successful under- mining in Eastern Europe. Vladimir Petrov, an Engineering Professor at Yale, con- tributed the views of an " ordinary layman " who has been subjected to the terrorist methods of a totalitarian state. He portrayed his own pointless arrest and long Siberian imprisonment in such a way as to demonstrate the aims of the Soviet police state, their methods and motivations. The economics of the Soviet states were very adequately explained by Naum Jasny (Stanford), and " Church-State " relationship under Communism was clearly handled by N.S. Timasheff (Fordham) and Francis Dvornik (Harvard). Austrian Troupe r ASHINGTON HALL became a little bit of Austria in May when the travel- ing troupe of the Austrian Student Good- will Tour to North America gave several performances. The group presented a program of folk and national music and dancing in order to acquaint the Notre Dame students with the Austrian culture heritage. Such native entertainment as yodeling and " slap-Dancing " which is the slapping of the sole of the shoe with the open hand highlighted the show. Also, the performers were garbed in the colorful costumes of their homeland. Vaughn Monroe 7AUGHN MONROE and his nationally famous orchestra, along with the " Moonmaids " and song- stress Joan Holiday, appeared on the campus this Spring. They aired their weekly broadcast to the nation from the stage of the Drill Hall before an enthusiastic audi- ence of students and their guests. Vaughn ' s show at Notre Dame was one of the series being broadcast from Colleges and Universities across the nation. Rev. J. Courtney Murray, S.J. HPHE Reverend J. Courtney Murray, S.J., one of the most distinguished of American theologians spoke on " Church and State " in his appearance on the Concert and Lecture Series program. Fr. Murray is noted as a foremost Catholic scholar among those attempting to answer the charges of those who claim the church is seeking a position of power in the United States through political pressure. He is also the editor of Theological Studies, outstanding American theological journal. David E. Lilienthal AS part of its program to bring interesting and cultural features to the campus, the Concert and Lecture Series presented Mr. David E. Lilienthal, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, in an address before the students and faculty. Mr. Lilienthal was at one time director, and later chairman, of the Tennessee Valley Authority. In 1949 he received the Progressive Farmers ' award for aid to the nation ' s agriculture, and four years ago he was selected by the Catholic Committee of the South for a special award for work beneficent to the South. Page 377 Christopher Lynch HP HE pseudo-Irish tenors of the campus were treated to the real thing as Christopher Lynch, the noted Irish tenor appeared for a Concert and Lecture Series performance in the Navy Drill Hall. A program of Irish songs, operatic exerpts, and other selections by the celebrated tenor from Rathkeale, Ireland was warmly received. Mr. Lynch is well known as the star of the " Voice of Firestone " radio program, and was a protege of the famous John McCormack. Mortimer J. Adler | " ] NE of the highlights of this year ' s Concert and Lecture Series was the appearance of Mortimer J. Adler, nationally known author and Professor of Philos- ophy of Law at the University of Chicago. Mr. Adler has become a familiar figure on campus, coming as he has several times throughout the school year, to Notre Dame to lecture before packed houses in Washington Hall, and also to carry on Great Books discussions with the Reverend John J. Cavanaugh,C.S.C., President of the University. Seumas MacManus SEUM AS MacMANUS, well-known and beloved Irish author and story-teller, appeared before an interested audience of students and faculty members in the Law Auditorium. Mr. McManus was sponsored by the Irish Culture Club of Notre Dame. He spoke on the integra- tion of Irish culture into the American culture, and the importance of Irish culture on the American scene. He also told several folk tales from his native country. Mr. MacManus first spoke at Notre Dame before World War I, after coming to the United States from Ireland, where he was a school-teacher. He is the author of several books, among them " Well of the World ' s End, " a collection of Irish folk tales which have been handed down from generation to generation. Some of these date back before the time of Christ. Page 378 The laetare Medal... T AETARE Sunday is a day in the middle of Lent, one of brightness during a season of penance. Annually on this day the University of Notre Dame awards one of its highest honors, the .Laetare Medal. It is America ' s symbol of loyalty to Catholic ideals and principles. General Joseph Lawton Collins, Chief of Staff of the United States Army, is the sixty-eighth recipient of the Laetare Medal, and fifth member of the Armed Forces to be so honored since 1886. In naming the 1950 Medalist, Reverend John J. Cavanaugh, C.S.C., President of the University, proclaimed General Collins a shining example of the moral leadership which is one of the vital needs of the world. " General Collins has had a distinguished career as a soldier, having been decorated for gallantry in both World Wars, " Fr. Cavanaugh cited. " His genius during the crisis of wartime, moreover, is equaled by his steadfast efforts in behalf of peace in the world today.

Page 384 Memorial Door " OEFORE there was a " Huddle " or a " Caf " where students could gather, the rear of the old science hall was the place to meet between classes and pass the time away. There the students amused them- selves with idle chatter, and the topics of conversation most likely were the same as those of today the last class, a tough test, vacations, home, or a host of easily imaginable subjects. When conversation lagged some of the students would carve their initials on the building ' s faded yellow bricks. The many initials and names which were scratched into the side of the building are evidence that the science hall was spectator to many student sessions. Quite a few of the students who had taken part in those impromptu meetings also participated in the first great war, and some of them did not come back from it. In 1923 Father Matthew Walsh, then Presi- dent of the University and a former army chaplain, with the enthusiastic approval of the Notre Dame veterans of Foreign Wars and persons interested in the University, decided to construct a memorial in honor of those men who had been killed in the service of their country. Mr. Kervich and Mr. Pagan of the Department of Architecture, drew up the blueprints, and the memorial which was to be a door in the eastern transept of the main church, was built. In a very real sense, as well as a very symbolic one, the Sacred Heart Church was an excellent choice. Like the churches of the small medieval community, it is the focal point of the life of this university and of its students. As a Catholic institution, the University finds its crystallized expression in the structure of the Church, in its paintings, stained-glass windows and objects of religious heritage, and finally in the very acts of religious worship of the students. Therefore, it was most proper that the memory of the men who gave their lives for " God, Country and Notre Dame " should be made a physical part of the Church. Since the early and medieval Church had interred the bodies of her heroes and martyrs within the walls of her churches, was not the embodiment of the memories of her own heroes in the form of a door the most fitting tribute Notre Dame could give them? When the Door was being built, bricks of the same color and age as those used in the church were required. It was discovered that the bricks in the Science Hall matched perfectly, and since the building had recently been torn down, its bricks were used in the construction of the memorial. Some time later, it was noticed that many of these bricks had the names and initials of those in whose honor and memory the Door had been built, scratched into them. These names can still be seen there today, although time has worn them thin. This monument remains a fusion of the past with the present. To represent Notre Dame and the modern, there are the division insignias on the vestibule ceiling, an army helmet, the C.S.C. coat of arms, the small figureheads of a soldier, sailor, nurse and doctor. The Christian past is embodied in the statues of the Warrior Saints, the stained glass insets of the rose and the poppy, and in the Door ' s attachment to the Church itself. The Door was finished by May of 1924 and on the thirtieth of that month, Father Walsh celebrated the first memorial Mass. Ever since that day it has been an annual custom to celebrate a military Mass which in later years has been augmented in color and in formality by the attendance of Notre Dame ' s R.O.T.C. units.

Page 386 Lobund Story T OBUND, one of the most significant developments in recent bateriological research, is the realization of a Notre Dame student ' s dream, and the result of the work of many scientists in fields previously unexplored. In 1928 Professor James A. Reyniers, then an undergraduate, began the first experiments in his research program which ultimately culminated in the Laboratories of Bacteriology of the University of Notre Dame. He was attempting to study bacteria along a new and difficult line of attack. Before that time, although great advances had been made in bacteriology, there was little basic knowledge of the bacteria themselves. It was Reyniers ' ambition to arrive at some method by which specific bacteria could be isolated and studied directly, without the possibility of contamination by other forms of bacteria which might add unknown factors to his results. With that end in view, he set about inventing and working with equipment which would be absolutely germ-proof. After his graduation in 1930 Professor Reyniers continued his experiments in a laboratory in Science Hall. He centered his work in two fields micrurgy and germ-free research. The laboratory grew to fill six rooms in Science Hall, until in 1937 the work was moved to the new Biology Building, where it occupied twenty-eight laboratories covering an entire floor. Since then it has expanded further, so that it now includes three new buildings, in addition to the basement of the Biology Building the LOBUND animal house, the germ-free life production laboratory, and a machine shop. The total number of labor- atories has increased to forty-five, manned by forty-three technicians, seven research scientists, and four office personnel. The phase of LOBUND which has received the most popular attention is the germ-free research, but actually that is only one of its departments. In addition to the Germ-Free Life Division, there are two other divisions Biological Engineering and Micrurgy. Biological Engineering is the reverse of germ- free research bacteria are sealed into the germ-proof apparatus, where they can be studied in their pure form and without danger. Micrurgy is the science concerned with the use of special instruments in working with micro-specimens directly under the microscope; it has made possible great advances in the dissection and analysis of the microbial cell. The Germ-Free Life division of LOBUND is, however, the largest. Its purpose is to rear germ-free animals, describe them, compare them with normally contaminated animals, and use them as new tools for the investigation of problems in biology and medicine. The application of this new scientific tool is expected to afford basic information which will be of value in medical and biological research. Among the problems at present being investigated are the cause of tooth decay, the role of micro- organisms in the intestinal tract, the development of the defensive mechanisms against infections, and many other similarly important projects. LOBUND, although separate from the academic organization of Notre Dame, is, nonetheless, a part of Notre Dame. It is carrying on a new and unique research which has attracted world-wide attention from scientists in a variety of fields of investigation. By making its new scientific tools available to as large a number of investigators as possible, it is hoped that LOBUND will be of the greatest service to science and mankind. Page 387 Page 388 " Qolonel " William Hoynes ' ITH an enrollment of two hundred and ninety-four men, the law school at Notre Dame offers today an extensive and fully accredited course, which is designed to qualify its graduates to practice law in every state of the union. Credit for the development of this school goes to a very great extent to one man " Colonel " William Hoynes. The " Colonel " was born in County Kilkenny, Ireland, in 1846. He was br ought by his parents to America as a boy of seven, and the family made their home in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. As a youth he learned the printer ' s trade in the offices of the LaCrosse Republican (even as a youth he was evidently attracted by the name of the political party which he vigorously supported all his life), and he worked at this trade until the year following the outbreak of the Civil War, when he enlisted in the Union forces as a private. Fighting in the army, he received the severe head wound which later was the object of so much interest to his law students. For it became a mark of honor and importance to have personally felt the crease in the " Colonel ' s " head where the bullet had made contact. After he had been honorably discharged from service, the " Colonel " returned to his printing trade, until, in the autumn of 1869, he came to Notre Dame as a student. After graduation in 1872, he became editor of the Daily Times in Brunswick, New Jersey. During his two years as editor, he became increas- ingly interested in law. Finally, although he loved his occupation as a journalist, he went to the University of Michigan, where he received his LL.B. in 1877. It was in 1882 that Father Walsh, worried about the decline of the once esteemed Law School at the University, asked " Colonel " Hoynes to come to Notre Dame and take charge of the Law School. The " Colonel, " always eloquent and frequently verbose, answered with polysyllabic rhetoric. He would come. And the Law School ' s star was on the rise. First teaching his classes in the Main Building, he shortly moved them to better quarters in Sorin Hall, where he established his " moot court. " He extended the course from two to three years, and was assisted in his lectures on various subjects by John Ewing and Lucius Hubbard of South Bend. " Colonel " Hoynes held sway in the Law School until 1923, when it was placed in the hands of Dean Thomas F. Konop. But in the time that the " Colonel " was Dean of the school, he had become a tradition. He was loved and respected by all the students, whether they had come in contact with him in the class, or on the drill field where " Hoynes light guards " met regularly. Wherever he went, he was cheered by the students, and it became a tradition that when the " Colonel " walked across the football field before a game, wearing his stovepipe hat, the Notre Dame team was sure to win. His appearance in Washington Hall was occasion for thunderous applause, and his reactions to the programs presented there were considered final and unerring. The story is told of the time that a program featured a dancing scene, and the " Colonel " got up and left the auditorium. The students present were sure that he had been shocked by the program. But minutes later they were relieved to see the " Colonel " enter the hall again. This time he was wearing his glasses. As long as there are men who remember the " Colonel, " stories will be told about him, stories of his eccentricities and his love of learning. Stories of his occasional flings with the boys will be told, too. They are stories that should be told, for they cover the period of Notre Dame ' s growth from a small, unknown school to its present status as one of the largest and best known Catholic Universities in America.

Page 389 ' Page 390 Fire of 1879 ID ACK in 1879 a great fire in the main building of the University poured a cloud of smoke into the air. The fire began in the railing around the Dome and spread rapidly, sweeping across the entire roof until the pitch covering burst into flames. Priests, brothers and students all turned out to man the bucket-brigades in a valiant attempt to quench the spreading flames. But when at last the statue above the dome crashed through its supports, the fire lines had to retreat. The greatest difficulty was to get water close to the heart of the fire and several amateur fire-fighters atop the building suddenly found themselves stranded in an attempt to reach the flames. The last-minute discovery of a fire hose on which they were able to slide to the ground saved them from being burned. When it was certain that the building was doomed, all efforts were applied to the rescuing of the more valuable belongings from the main building. One student, staggering from the burning building with an arm-load of rescued material, was hurled suddenly to the ground by what he imagined to be the entire building collapsing upon him. He prepared to meet his fate bravely and prayerfully but eventually arrived at the conclusion that he was not yet quite dead. He therefore moved and tossed the " building " from his back. Someone leaning from the window above wondered what was going on under the mattress he had just thrown down. The local fire-brigade had naturally been called for, but due to the fact that the engine had not seen service for two years, the brigade was a little late in arriving. Father Corby, surveying the ruins of what had been St. Francis ' Home, the Infirmary, the Music Hall and the college building, feared that Father Sorin, the Father General, might suffer considerably from the news. Nevertheless, he dispatched a message to Father Sorin and awaited his return. Father Sorin did return, and walked amid the ruins of all that he had so carefully planned. Those with him could not doubt that a new university would arise from these ashes, for he told them: " If it were ALL gone, I should not give up. " The spirit of Notre Dame lived in these men and lives today in their successors. Page 391 H Iff. I I m ' f ' : MfoViii); : ' " -. ' .T.- ' .V.--.- " ' ;;? ' ,. . s . ' . Page 392 (Cardinal Uisits A[otre From Notre Dame, One Hundred Years. by Arthur J. Hope. C.S.C. pps. 463-464 visit of Cardinal Pacelli was of a most extraordinary nature. He was the Secretary of State to -1L the aging Pius XI, and his departure from Rome was all the more unusual on this account. He came to the United States in the fall of 1936, and he traveled from one end of the country to the other by airplane. His arrival at Notre Dame was scheduled for Sunday, October 25th. Plans were made for a con- vocation in Washington Hall, at which an honorary degree would be conferred on the illustrious Cardinal. Rumour had it that the Cardinal would arrive shortly after the noon hour. Since one o ' clock, the students had been waiting near the entrance to the grounds. It was a cold, grey day, and it began to drizzle. Some of the students grew restive and sought the shelter of their rooms. This Eugenio Pacelli, the Cardinal Secretary of State to His Holiness, was late in coming. In spite of the airplane, someone murmured, Rome moves slowly. It was nearly three o ' clock before the line of shiny black limousines appeared down the avenue. By that time, only two or three hundred students were stationed at the entrance. If those who had departed could only have seen what would happen to this Cardinal Pacelli, no rain or storm or sleet would have driven them from their post. Even as it was, when the automobile bearing the Cardinal slowed at the entrance to take the curb gently, a hearty roar of welcome and applause went up from the rain-soaked students. The procession went on to the door of the church. In the organ-loft, awaiting the Cardinal ' s coming, was a priest who, in Rome, had often assisted at the ceremonies in St. Peter ' s. And the music that came to his mind was none other than the Marcia Papale, the Papal March. The organ swelled in that melody, somehow it seemed later, in the nature of a musical prophecy. The tall, spare figure of Cardinal Pacelli, straight as an arrow, his long tapering fingers tightly folded before his breast, walked to the sanctuary where, for a moment, he knelt in prayer in that very spot where Gregori, in 1875, had depicted Pius IX. Then, rising, he mounted the altar steps, bent to kiss the altar, and turning, blessed the assembled multitude with the triple sign of the cross. The procession formed again and started for Washington Hall. Every seat was taken, and every inch of standing room. As the Cardinal appeared on the stage, there was a splendid ovation with every man and woman standing there. When quiet was restored, Father O ' Hara spoke a few words of welcome, during which the sharp-eyed Cardinal sat, listening attentively, on the edge of his chair. Father Carrico, the Director of Studies, then read the citation, after which Father O ' Hara handed to the Cardinal the diploma making him an alumnus of Notre Dame, honoris causa. The applause was deafening, and again, everyone was standing. Cardinal Pacelli stepped to the edge of the stage and from a tiny paper read, in understandable English, but with a musical Italian accent, his words of appreciation for the honor bestowed upon him who was so soon to ascend the papal throne. Finally, he blessed the kneeling throng in the name of the Holy Father. Then, as the audience rose from its knees, he paused briefly. From his lips came words that proved him a sympathetic son of Notre Dame: " And now, if there is no objection on the part of your superiors, I grant you a holiday! " The applause reached new heights. The Cardinal turned suddenly to the audience, and everyone grew silent. Evidently there was something he had forgotten to say. He supplied it immediately: " ... and to St. Mary ' s! " Page 393 Page 394 Father Farley " ORANK Leahy ' s Notre Dame football teams are known far and wide for their wide-open, crowd-pleasing style of play. In recent years the end-around play has been one of the most spectacular and successful features of the Irish attack. Many people do not know, however, that the end-around is not new to Notre Dame football. Irish teams of the ' 80 ' s and ' 90 ' s used it extensively. And just before the turn of the century one of the lads who made sure that the end-around got around was John Farley. John Farley wasn ' t a particularly big fellow, but he was rugged and fast. He had such success carrying the ball from his end position that he was almost considered a member of the Irish backfield. Farley held down an Irish end slot for two years as an ordinary Notre Dame student, and then he entered the seminary to study for the priesthood as a member of the Congregation of the Holy Cross. He played his third and last year of varsity football as a seminarian. John Farley must have been just as diligent and successful in the pursuit of sacred studies as he had been in athletics, for in 1906 he became the Reverend John Farley, C.S.C. Except for an assignment of a few years at the University of Portland, Oregon, Father Farley spent the rest of his life here on the campus of Our Lady. He was, at various times, rector of Corby, Walsh and Sorin halls. It was as rector and prefect that numberless students grew to know and love him. He was one of the most popular priests on campus with students and faculty alike. There are many stories that can be told about Father Farley. The one concerning a small group of nattily dressed students, a certain fire escape and the right amount of strategically placed axle grease, for instance, is a favorite with those who remember him. It is only the alumni, the men who knew Father Farley when they were students, and who were participants in the many amusing incidents in which the popular priest was involved, who are really qualified to tell the stories about him. But the reasons for Father Farley ' s popularity are apparent even to the present-day student who never knew him personally. Father Farley was loved because he was a good man, a holy man, a just man, and a man ' s man. He was a man whom the students could respect and admire. But more than that, he was their man. He was the man who attended all student activities. He was the man who took a deep personal interest in each of the students, and he, more than any other man, was vitally and personally concerned with everything connected with the students. When Father Farley died in 1939 alumni and students knew that they had lost a great friend. It is no wonder, then, that in 1946 the many alumni who had known Father Farley requested almost to a man that the new residence hall then being built be called Farley Hall. It is a fitting tribute to a man who, though he had never attained " greatness " according to the standards of the world, will always be remembered as great by those who knew him. Page 395 Meaning of C.S.C. THE CONGREGATION OF HOLY CROSS Rev. John H. Wilson, C.S.C. fl " ANY WHO know Notre Dame do not know - the roots of the Notre Dame story, a history of men of faith and their struggle to hew a school for Our Lady out of the Indiana wilderness of a century ago. So called " subway alumni " do not realize, moreover, that Notre Dame has long been a spiritual hub projecting its apostolic spokes into many parts of the United States and of the world in the persons of Holy Cross priests and Brothers. Many who are familiar with the branch, Notre Dame, are ignorant of the tree, Holy Cross. The Congregation of Holy Cross was founded in France in 1837 by Father Basil Anthony Moreau, a young priest inspired by a great love of God and souls, and determined to repair the damage done in his native land by the godless- ness of the French Revolu- tion. France, however, was not large enough to con- tain his zeal. Soon his priests, Brothers and Sisters were teaching and preaching in Africa, India, the United States, Can- ada, Poland and Italy. Today there are Holy Cross houses also in England, Haiti, Brazil and Chile - and more in the planning stage for other countries. One of the first foundations - - November 1842 was in northern Indiana near South Bend where Father Moreau. Father Sorin. Father Edward Sorin, C.S.C., and seven Holy Cross Broth- ers came to begin Our Lady ' s school. In the early years of bitter struggle against cold, poverty, hunger, disease, and untold setbacks, the little band was aided by many friends. Among them were Father Badin, pioneer missionary, the first priest ever ordained in the United States, Alexis Coquillard, fur trader and early settler, and the many Indians of the vicinity. The priests, Brothers and Sisters were strengthened also by an unswerving love of God and His Blessed Mother to whom they had dedicated their mission and all their labors. The most severe test of the newly born " Spirit of Notre Dame " came swiftly. In 1879 the campus was ravaged by a terrible fire which left only a few buildings standing. The community reacted in a way that might have been expected at a school whose athletic teams were later to be known as " The Fight- ing Irish. " Before the smoke had cleared away, plans were laid for a new Notre Dame to arise bigger and better out of the ashes of the old. The story is told of the heroic Sorin, now an old man, walking about among the wreckage of his life ' s work, picking up the bricks still warm from the fire, knocking the mortar off them and stacking them in preparation for using them over again in the new school. Said he: " If it were all gone, I would not give up. This school is Mary ' s and she will not desert us. " Born of the same spirit were the many who fol- Page 396 Father Corby at Gettysburg. lowed in Father Sorin ' s footsteps. There is space here to name only a few. Father Corby, twice President of the University, as chaplain in the Civil War stood amidst the carnage of Gettysburg to give absolution to the Irish Brigade. The statue in front of the campus hall named after him is a replica of the one now standing on the famous battlefield. Father Hudson labored as a member of the com- munity and as editor of the Ave Maria for 64 years with scarcely a day ' s vacation. Often on iron-cold Indiana winter nights long before steam heat and radiators he used to stay up working till one and two a.m. To keep warm he would stuff his feet into straw filled boots, and boots and feet and straw and all he ' d stuff into straw filled boxes. There were Fathers Nieuw- land, one of the great sci- entists of the 20th century; Zahm, explorer, educator; O ' Donnell, poet and admin- istrator; the present Bishop Father Nieuwland. f Buffalo, the Most Rev- erend John F. O ' Hara,C.S.C., apostle of frequent Communion as Prefect of Re- ligion and President, and many others. Countless Brothers and Sisters of Holy Cross have given in full measure their lives of devotion and loyalty to the school without their labor, and above all their prayer and the sacrifice of their lives as religious, the Notre Dame story would never have gotten past the Prologue. Meanwhile the Congregation was deploying its forces elsewhere. The Diocese of Dacca in Bengal has long been under the care of the Congregation. There, many priests and Brothers, graduates of Notre Dame, have lived and died to bring the faith to the land hallowed by the zeal of St. Francis Xavier. The Most Reverend Lawrence L. Graner, C.S.C., of the class of ' 24 is now Bishop. One of his young missionaries, Father Robert Waichulis, C.S.C., ' 41, was drowned in the line of duty only three years after ordination. Other Notre Dame men are working in South America, in more than 20 parishes in the United States, in home missions for negroes and Mexicans in Texas, on the mission band preaching retreats, missions, novenas, and as chap- lains and writers. Besides Notre Dame, the Congre- gation administers the University of Portland in Oregon; King ' s College, Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; Stone- hill College, North Easton, Mass.; St. George ' s Col- lege, Santiago, Chile, and St. Gregory ' s College in Bengal Pakistan. The teaching Brothers of Holy Cross, almost all graduates of Notre Dame, maintain more than a dozen high schools and academies across the country from Massachusetts to California, from Chicago to New Orleans. Theirs, too, is St. Edward ' s Uni- versity, Austin, Texas. In Canada the glory of Holy Cross is the Shrine of St. Joseph at Montreal and the humble porter, Brother Andre, C.S.C., whose prayer and faith and Zeal built the famous church. In the Maritime Provinces a Holy Cross priest, Father Camille Le- febvre, known as the apostle of Acadia, by his preaching helped to raise the Acadians from a state of servitude and inferiority to one of equality and freedom. Holy Cross in France, laid low by the ravages of two wars, is slowly pulling itself erect again. There parishes, schools and missions are under the care of the Congregation. At Notre Dame and across the world the religious of Holy Cross are bound together by the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, by their common rule and spiritual exercises and by the ideal of their religious family signified in its motto " Our One Hope, the Holy Cross. " Together with the loyal devotion of the lay faculty, the student body, alumni and friends, the dedicated lives of the priests, Brothers and Sisters must rank over the years among the chief blessings of the University of Notre Dame, Alma Mater.
