The Church. 


BY BROTHER GILBERT, ’19. 


’"pHE liills roll back to hide their eyes, 

The snow-clad mountains droop away, 

The dread seas kiss the blood-red skies, , 

And man bemoans his judgment day. 

Beside the royal throne, behold 

A bride assumes the reign of Heaven; 

Her mantles sheltered and consoled 

The saints. Her mantles number seven. 

Beautiful, stately, she withstood 
The demon in an earthly fight; 

Clothed in her mantles and her hood 

Now more than morning she is bright. 

To those upon His left Christ turned. 

One look, — they swiftly fled away; - 

Rightward his eyes of longing burned 
And He found mighty words to say: 

'Arise, make haste, my spouse, my lov^. 

For time at last brooks no delay; 

The Winter’s past, my love, my dove, 

This is our final nuptial day.” 


The Hope of Universal Peace.* 


BY JOHN PATRICK' RYAN, ’20. 



k HE priceless heritage of the past is the 
lesson it teaches the present. The 
great evils of history have met their 
severest reverses almost at the moment 
when their power seemed supreme. To the 
scoffer at universal peace, the present, with its 
world war, the most terrible' in history, affords 
a wealth of plausible argument; to the historian 
and the advocate of peace, however, it furnishes 

the unmistakable sign' of the past which fore- 

* » * 

shadows the doom of this great evil which has 
murdered uncounted generations of mankind: 


For centuries all disputes between nations 
have been settled on the field of battle. Bloody 
wars with all their wickedness, waste and horror 
have increased. Yet, we may believe that- in 
the midst of all this bloodshed, a spark of hope, 
for some better method of settlement remains 
alive. Today, undaunted by the" mocking 
spectacle of a world war, and taking courage 
from the very lesson of it, we fondly hope and 
believe that the day has been hastened when 
difficulties between nations will be settled, not 
by the instruments of war but by the instru- 
ments of peace. . ’ h % 

There can be no longer any doubt, ladies 
and gentlemen, of the desirability of peace or 
of the futility of the craze for maintaining the. 
big armaments that have been sapping the 
strength and exhausting the energy of -the- world- 
powers. Already the statesmen of -the world 
are beginning to realize what the folly of their 
mad race has brought them, and are longing, 
for the day when some influential nation will be 
bold enough to take a definite "step toward the 
peace they all desire. • 

Now the question naturally suggests itself: 
Is this peace which is so desirable at all prac- 
ticable? Can we ever hope with any degree of 
assurance that there will come a time when all 
‘the disputes that may arise between nations; 
will be settled by peaceful means? Will there 
ever be .-a time when the appeal to arbitration 
will invariably supplant the challenge of war? 

The first consideration which would justify; 
us' in saying that this 'method of deciding 
international disputes is bound to come is the 
constant, steady growth during, the past century 
of the desire for: the peaceful settlement of 
international difficulties. A glance at the 
history of the past century shows that an 
extraordinary number of disagreements between 
the world powers have been settled by peaceful

means '* As decade succeeded decade in recent 
times, we find the number of these amicable 
adjustments increasing. During the last cen- 
tury not fewer than three hundred contro- 
versies between the civilized nations of the 
world have been settled by arbitration. 

There is but one conclusion we can draw 
from this — the conclusion that the constant 
recourse to arbitration shows that the tendency 
of the world is toward 'peace. Since so many 
and such important questions have been settled 
to the satisfaction of all countries involved, 
why, therefore, cannot nations be gradually 
brought to submit all disputes to .arbitration 
and be- induced to abide by the decision of the 
court established for that purpose? 

It is understood that it will take longer to 
abolish duels between nations than it did to 
abolish duels between individuals; but he is blind 
who cannot see that, in spite of all contrary 
appearances, the international duel is bound 
to go. For if individuals can settle their dif- 
ferences by the decision of a judge, why cannot 
nations do the same? The same reasons that 
operated to do away with the one, will suffice 
sooner or later to do away with the other.. Just 
as individuals in a civil community where law r s 
are established and enforced do not dream of 
settling disputes by fighting, so, with the 
establishment of international law, nations can 
be brought to settle their differences in the same 
peaceful and reasonable way. In the words 
of Sir Edward Grey: “There is only one thing 
which will really affect the naval and military 
expenditures of the, world on the wholesale 
scale on which they must be affected if there 
is to be a real and sure relief. You will not get 
it until nations do what individuals have done — 
come to regard an appeal to law as the natural 
course for nations instead of an appeal to force.” 

The chance that, nations have to be fairly 
treated will make them more ready to submit. 
According to present plans, the international 
court is to be composed of representatives from 
ever)'- nation on the globe — it is to be the Parlia- 
ment of the World. Can we imagine. a body, 
more eminently qualified to give a fair and 
unbiassed decision on a point that directly 
concerns only a few of its members? No, my 
friends, there is absolutely no reason why this 
state of -affairs, however slow the progress 
toward it may be, should not be ultimately 
attained. - V . \ . - / . - . .. 

It is true that the elimination of war would 


mean ' a great change in society, but thes e 
changes have taken place time and time again. 
Other equally great reforms have been effected 
and still others can and will be effected in tlie 
course of time. _ Is it not true that wars have 
been decreasing in number? War has come to 
be the exception whereas it used to be the 
normal state. Historians' tell us of a thirty 
years war and a hundred years Avar, but it is 
almost i mp ossi ble’for ,us e\ r en to imagine the 
state of society that would-promote such fight- 
ing. We are told how the “War of the Roses” 
began in England almost in the Avake of the 
“Hundred Years War” and hoAV the “Cods” 
and “Hooks” in Holland deA*oured one another 
for a century and a half. But at the present 
time, Avars decrease Avith every succeeding 
generation, and if it were not for the great 
profits reaped by the corporations that furnish 
the supplies of Avar, it Avould not be long before 
they Avould cease entirely. 

MoreoA'er, individual Avar has been abolished 
altogether. In olden times, the nobles used to 
declare Avar against each other and summon 
all their kinsmen to help wage it. and so numerous 
Avere these combats that the very- existence of 
society seemed threatened. But this is no 
longer tolerated. The day came AA r hen the needs 
of an adA'ancing race required that this practice 
should be reformed. In like manner should 
the Avars of nations be abolished. To quote 
from John'Fiske: “Warfare, once regarded as 
the only fitting occupation for AA r ell-bred men, 
has come to be regarded, not only as an in- 
tolerable nuisance but eA'en as a criminal 
business.” This goes to. shoAA r , my friends, that 
the tendency is more and more toAvard peace. . 
Morality and conservation are the Avateh- 
AA'ords of our time. We are beginning to see 
that Avar is irrational. EA r eryone avIio knoAvs 
of the acthdties of the Hague Court Avill agree 
that the settlements that haA'e been made there 
of A*ery important differences are> far more 
satisfactory in eA'ery way than could be effected 
by any resort to arms v - 
.The only question that remains, and it is a 
question that the future alone can solve, is the 
point at which the ancient custom of war uoav 
infesting the countries of Europe, Avill finally 
be done - away Avith; . Avhether from within or 
Avithout, Avhether . from its OAvn Aveakness or 
by the reasonableness of an advancing nation. 
That;is a problem still unsolved, but it is not 
impossible that some people now Irving may

witness its solution. In the words of Victor 
Hugo: “A day will come when a cannon ball 
will be exhibited in the public museums just 
as an instrument of torture is now, and people 
will be amazed that such a thing could ever 
have been., A day will come when those two 
immense groups^ the United States of America 
and the United States of Europe will be seen 
extending .the hand of permanent fellowship 
across the ocean, exchanging their produce, 
their industries, their arts, their genius, clearing 
the earth, peopling the desert, improving- 
creation under the eye of the Creator.” 

And after all, we have overestimated the 
significance of the valor of the soldier. The 
highest triumphs are those won with peace, 
those which compel the resources of intelligence 
to serve the cause of humanity. 

I once listened to a civil war veteran tell the 
„ story of a dying comrade on the battlefield of 
Bull Run. This soldier was cheerful enough 
as he lay on the hard, cold ground waiting for 
death to claim him because he loved his country . 
and was willing to die for it. But grief and 
anguish filled his heart when he thought of his 
poor wife and the four small children he was 
leaving behind him without any means of 
support No doubt he had a vision of how, 

• some years later, the poor widow should die 
of a broken heart and the four unkempt, 
mentally untrained little ones would be left 
alone in the world. His grave has a large stone 
marker in one of the national cemeteries and 
on each Decoration Day a new flag is placed 
upon it. But the body of his poor widow found 
rest in some obscure corner of a country grave- 
yard, and it is not very likely that a flag or . 
any other decoration marks her grave. Yet I 
. truly believe that the heroism of that woman, 
who struggled and toiled with the great problems 
of the world in am endeavor to rear her four boys, 
for whom, she was finally a sacrifice, was far 
greater than that of her husband who died, on 
the field of battle. 

Nearly 400,000 bodies are gathered into the 
national cemeteries of this country, fully one- 
half of them occupying unnamed graves. •' The . 
soldier, has a tombstone, with his name on it 
at the head of his grave, but his wife, who fought 
higher and nobler battles, is no longer remem-, 
bered. And there were, and are, thousands of 
such women who endured that , awful suffering. 

Some' may regret tile, great waste of the 
■ material resources of the world in time of war, 


but most of us lament the terrible loss of human 
lives. Let us cry aloud to the crowned heads 
of Europe and to the Republics of the world 
To put an end to the horrible slaughter. Let us. 
forever keep in mind the beatitudes: “Blessed 
are the meek for they shall possess the land. 
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall 
be called the children of God.” Let us pray 
that the day of universal peace is near. The 
triumph of Christianity should make it so. 

It is helped along by every sacrifice of self and 
every martyrdom to the cause of truth. Let 
us be armed with righteousness and there will 
be no need of guns and swords. ■ 

In Western France along that shell-swept 
front, where two immense armies, for months 
iii a frightful deadlock, struggled to break each 
other’s lines, is a desolate, ruined area where 
before the war there was peace and plenty and 
happiness. In the very storm center of this 
spot, surrounded with the battered and crushed 
ruins of a church near-by and in the midst, of 
tombstones shattered and graves blown open 
in the little churchyard, stands a lone, life- 
size figure of the Crucified, unscathed by the 
fury of shell and fire that has swept all else 
away and left nothing but sheer desolation. 
What a weird contrast, this figure of peace 
and the terrible destruction of war, — and yet, 
what a hopeful vision does this lone figure of \ 
the Prince of Peace, surviving all the devastation 
of war, suggest to the friends of peace. May we 
not hope that the day is not far distant when 
Universal Peace, like that lone figure of the 
Peacemaker, will rise out of the ruin and deso- 
lation -wrought by war to rule the lives of men 
in peace? *

THE NOTRE DA 

When Grandpa Was not Himself. 


‘‘Bring out her chair, Lloyd, and .we’ll set 
’round on the shady side o’ the house. Can’t 
stand settin’ indoors on a day like this. Lee, 
son, git that thar pam-leaf fan out from under 
the chist for Grandpa, an’ tell the women folks 
to come out when- they gits the dishes cleaned 
up.” 

“All right, Granpda?” shouted Lee as he 
bounded away on his mission. It was an 
unusually quiet Sunday afternoon at Uncle 
’Lias Mattingly'’ s little home away* back in the 
wilds of the penny*-royal district of Central 
Kentucky 1 '. Uncle ’Lias, as he is called by 
everybody' down there, is a Civil War veteran 
of the Rebel persuasion and a patriarch in the 
county'- in which he lives. The family 7 tree of 
which he is the root numbers multitudinous 
twigs and buds. He boasts thirteen children, 
sixty-five grand-children, twenty-one great- 
grand-children, and anticipates the arrival of 
the great-greats in a short time. Every* Sundays 
afternoon the tribe gathers from all corners of 
the county to spend a little while with the old 
folks and get all the family’- news. They 7 ' come 
walking across the fields, riding in the old-time 
spring-wagons, on horseback, and most every 7 
way except the modern way 7 . It looks for all 
the world like a county fair when they 7 get, 
together. Grandpa has a big, powerful voice, 
and he can talk to all of them while they 7 are 
there and most of the way home. 

On this particular Sunday 7 , however, it hap- 
pened that there wasn’t anyone there but our 
family. The rest of them liad gone to Uncle 
Charlie’s for Lutie’s weddin’ dinner. We had 
to go to Grandpap’s to see about “thrashin’ on 
the shares — him and Pap.” This was soon 
settled, ’cause Grandpap didn’t get excited as 
he usually 7 does about thrashin’ time. He spent 
most of the time talkin’ to Lee and a-pettin’ 
’him. You know Lee . is my 7 brother, what 
Grandpap named 'after the general that, he 
served under- in the war. I was namej for 
General Jackson, but Grandpap says I ain’t 
the boy that Lee is. Just- the same I hoe corn 
from daylight to dark till my back is nearly 7 
broke in two all the week just so I kin go to 
Grandpap’s : house on Sunday 7 . He’s such a 
jolly old fellow, and I alius have so much, fun 
with him that I forgit .all about the hard work 
I’ve done, but this day he was, kind o’ quiet 
and . sad 'like. We had been talkin’ . about the 


ME SCHOLASTIC 

war at the dinner table and it seemed to / sort 
. o’ hurt him. He was tellin’ us, as he does now 
and then, that when he was thirteen y 7 ears old 
and the y 7 oungest of the family he kissed his 
old Mammy 7 good-bye an’ went off to Virginie 
to jine General Lee’s army 7 as a drummer boy. 
The general must have liked him, ’cause Grand- 
pa is alius tellin’ about how'' he used to find 
extra hard-tack in his knapsack when he 
thought there was no more, and how some nights 
he’d go to sleep on the ground an’ wake up the 
next mornin’ on the General’s own cot. Grand- 
pa has a story 7 book about the general, an’ 
v Lee has to read some of it to him every Sunday 7 . 
As- Grandpap ’Lias went off to the war instead 
of goin’ to school he never learned how to read 
for, himself, you know. - 

Lee was just finishin’ a chapter today 7 on the 
death of General Lee, and Grandpap fell to 
thinkin’ hard. Grandma Jane an’ all of us were 
quiet for a long time till Pap broke the silence 
by 7 askin’ Grandpap if he thought we was 
goin’ to have war agin. About that time I was 
feelin’ disgusted an’ thinkin’ that the hard 
hoein’ I had been doin’ all the week was not 
very well paid; for if they 7 was goin’ to talk 
serious like that all the time. Grandpap ’Lias 
didn’t answer very 7 quick, so Pap asked agin if 
we was goin’ to have war. ' 

Then Grandpap answered slow an’ sad, so 
different from the way he alius talks : “I dunno, 
Lloyd; I hope not. When I was thirteen I 
thought war was fun, but it wasn’t. You 
can’t have no idy how bad it is. If you’d been 
at Antietam and Gettysburg like I was, you 
wouldn’t want any 7 war neither, I tell you. 

I don’t know how, but I got out alive. Since 
then I’ve had sucha long happy life in peace 
with my 7 children all ’round me. Now I’m an 
old man. Only the sadness of another war 
now could take away from me the joy of a life 
that cannot last much longer. I hope not, 
Lloyd; I — hope — not!”, 

Grandpap’s chin fell on his breast, and he 
said nothin’ more. .Grandma put her arm ’round 
his neck, and Pap got up and walked off towards 
the woods. Tears were stealin’ slowly down 
Mammy’s cheek, an’ me an’. Lee went out in 
the field, to look for birds’ nests. We didn’t 
say a word till Lee was kneelin’ down / by 7 the 
spring under the mulberry tree to git a drink, 
when he says, “ I don’t like it, when Grandpap 
’Lias talks that way.” And says I, 

“I don’t neither.” - c. E. M., ’20.

BY MARION MUIR. 


The bugle blows from far, so far, — 

Beyond the Continental snows. 

Beyond the desert’s burning bar ' 

That holds the world its summons knows. 

The Lord their camping ground hath set, — 

Gray heroes of the mighty host; 

Whose lips the kiss of Freedom met 
When half her sons were slain or lost. 

The bugle blows again, more high, 

And utmost echoes wake and thrill: 

For those who taught men how to die 
Come trooping from the Theban hill. 

From Marathon and Bannockburn, 

From awful Judah’s rocky tombs; 

And icy peaks where children- learn 
How Tell’s immortal story blooms. 

The shades of valor lead the way, 

Though Tyre is dead, and Babylon 
Among her marshes tots today, 

Such souls are clad in morning sun. 

Of them the Grecian heart still sings, 

"Thou art not dead, Harmodius, No!” 

The seed, of martyrs mocks at kings 
Whose purple perished long ago. 

Wrapt in her mourning cloak. the land 
Arising, welcomes joy to be; 

Her confidence in His command 
Who hushed the waves on Galilee. 

Fear not! above the tempest’s power,

His breath the secret of their power, . 

Wljo break the bondman’s galling chains. 

Oh land whose very stones are red. 

Wrung from the furnace of despair, 

Upon thy breast, like snow, be shed

Saint Gregory the Great. 


BY FRANCIS BUTLER, T9. 


Almost everyone is familiar with the tradi- 
tional story told of St. Gregory concerning hij? 
meeting with Angle slave-children in the Roman 
slave market. The story is so touching, so 
eminently typical of the saint, that its inherent 
charm is scarcely lessened, however often it is 
told. Gregor}', so the story runs, while taking 
his accustomed walk, was impressed by the 
blue eyes and ruddy beauty of these Northern 
slave-children. Ardent and compassionate as 
he was, the Pope inquired whence they came. 
On being informed that they were Angles, 
he exclaimed, “Alas! that the author of dark- 
ness should have such fair faces, and that such 
beautiful forms should have no inward graces. 
“Angles?” he said, “Angels, rather.” 

This, quaint story reveals the character of 
the man. Out of his heart as water out of a 
crystal spring, flowed tender sympathy and 
soulful yearning for the universal spread of 
Christianity. In him, as in all the great bene- 
factors of 'mankind, was the harmonious union 
of spiritual and human qualities. How pene- 
trating his spiritual and administrative insight 
was, may be gathered from his Regula Pastor- 
alis, the handbook of every medieval bishop.' 
But for his large human qualities we must; 
know his everyday life and the circumstances 
that shaped his. life-work. 

Inheriting from his Roman parents patrician 
wealth and position at a time when the Im- 
perial City was being stripped of its grandeur, 
the saint’s earliest outlook on human concerns 
must have been many-colored. The Lombard’ 

\ fiercer than Hun or V andal, built his campfires" 
beneath the very walls of Rome; valiant 
legions from the Empire bn the Bosphorus made 
incessant warfare that the living ideals of Christ 
might live and triumph over the fatalism of 
Persian and Turk. The Occident warred against 
the Orient, and their armies clashed - and were 
locked in perpetual conflict. In the West, 
above and around Rome, the very earth 
trembled beneath the marchings of barbaric 
warriors. Greed, lust, pillage, bloodshed, were 
the great sins of the time. Those warriors 
were wild, revengeful men who recognized no 
spiritual voice -in the whole world. Amid such 
this young Roman grew to manhood.- He became 


4?o 


THE NOTRE DAME SCHOLASTIC 


a Benedictine monk and in due time abbot of 
his inoriastery. People promptly recognized 
in him a man as exceptional as he was humble. 
On the death of Pope Pelagius II. in 590,- 
Gregory was elected to the papal throne. Such 
in brief are the main facts of his early life. 
The events and circumstances that are to 
follow will give definiteness to our view of 
- the saint, especially as regards his human 
qualities. 

Now that he was Pope and head of Christ- 
endom, Gregor}’- affixed to his multitudinous 
correspondence the sincere and humble title, 
serous servornm Dei. This title, borne b}'- all 
subsequent popes, bespeaks his idea of Jiis 
office and genuine feeling of responsibility. ' 
For, whether advising the Emperor Maurice 
or admonishing some bishop vin turbulent 
Gaul, he was always the servant of the servants 
of God. 

It is in his letters, however, that we are to 
get the most intimate acquaintance with the 
man. Nearly a thousand in number, most of 
which fortunately have been preserved for us,, 
they are written to every kind and class of 
persons, and deal with problems as intricate 
as any we have today. The whole Christian 
Avorld felt their influence and guidance. And 
even today, when compared with the classic 
letters of Leo XIII., 'Bismarck, and Gladstone, 
they retain their quickening freshness and 
•practical worth. Above all, they are intensely 
human as is evidenced by the following' quo- 
tations, which we take as most illustrative of 
the saint. 

Writing to Virgilius, Bishop of Arles in Gaul,. 

* in order to correct an abuse, he says, “If men 
in building are careful to have the walls properly 
dried, before they put weight upon them,, 
and sap out of the wood before they fix .it in 
its place,- why should we have unprepared men 
in the Church.” > Here his -Roman ideas of order 
and standard- of efficiency are given forceful 
expression. . < 

Concerning the preachers of revealed truth, 
he insists that they “ought to think more of 
. what they have- to say than of the manner in 
which they may set forth the saving truths 
they have to ihstiPinto the minds- and hearts 
of their hearers/’ And to re-enforce this 
reminder, he adds, “The more the -tree runs 
to leaves, the less the fruit it bears:” He was 
dealing with all sorts of men, educated and 


uneducated, Roman and barbarian, and he 
would not be misunderstood. 

Sometimes bishops became either self- 
centered or refractory. And Gregory’s attitude 
toward all such is summed up in a letter to a 
bishop who had long exhausted his patience. 
“I am prepared to suffer death rather than 
allow the Church of Blessed Peter to be degraded 
in any way in my time. You know my dispo- 
sition. I bear for a long time. But when once 
I have made up my mind to bear no longer. 
I cheerfully face every difficulty.” There is 
evidence here of rock-like firmness and towering 
fortitude; and it is not at all surprising, then, 
that during Gregory’s pontificate, the Papacy 
acquired ■ that command over the youthful 
nations -of the. West Avhich Avas to be exercised 
Avitli so much good consequent by the great 
medieA'al popes. 

Despite all the momentous duties of office 
that croAA r ded his days, he found time for 
many and great charities. On becoming a 
monk he. gaA*e to the poor of Rome all his 
Avealth and possessions. As pope his charities 
Avere as munificent as the eA^er- diminishing 
treasury of the Church would permit. And 
yet, they A\ r ere many and mightily ' directed. 
To the Empress, in behalf of the peasants of 
Corsica Avho Avere oppressed beneath the iron 
rule of the Lombard, he pleads for help. The 
Corsicans in order to pay an enormous tribute 
Avere obliged to sell- their children into slaA'ery. 
And hoAV intensely the fatherly heart of Gregory 
Avas stirred to pity is A'oiced in a letter to the 
Empress. “ Hoav could they suffer more cruelly, 
at the hands of the barbarians than to be so 
oppressed as to be forced to sell their oaaui 
children?” 

Undoubtedly that medieA'al saying, “It is 
good to liA-'e under a crozier,” originated on the 
patrimonies, of Gregory. His coloni or tenants 
Avere to knoAAf their rights and to be furnished 
A\ r ith copits of them. To Peter, his oA’-erseer., 
he AA’rites, “You will bring me in a more profit- 
able return if you Avill accumulate the reAA r ard 
of a good conscience than if you bring back 
great riches.” 

Nor did he deem it beneath his dignity, Avhen 
leisure moments . could be found, to gather 
around him Roman boys, rich and poor alike, 
and- to teach them the music of the Church. 
Surely this happy scene reminds one of another

and followed the “Reading from Homer.” 

Gregory often spoke of himself in a lighter 
vein, commenting, for example, on his suffering 
from the gout; and sometimes in writing to 
the Emperor Maurice, he would talk lightly 
of his growing corpulency, adding that fat men 
are prone to be lazy. But of all men Gregory, 
in truth, could give best account of his time. 
Humble, sincere of- motive, resolute in purpose 
and . action, — these were his more striking 
characteristics, in judgment of which, men of 
all ages have called him the Great.. 

Human nature is likely to look upon the saints 
as men and women, great indeed, but withdrawn 
from the ordinary concerns and anxieties of 
human life. But such a notion is not verified 
in the great St. Gregory. From our considera- 
tion of him, it is clear that while he was busy 
with the business of God, he was intensely 
human in all his dealings. When physical 
courage was the sole virtue among the nations 
of the North, he, with only moral forces at his 
disposal, never for a moment lost hope or trust 
in the ultimate goodness of man. He aroused 
the nobler promptings of their pliant natures, 
even as St. Monica had moved the heart of 
Augustine to repentance. He himself has 
written that the true bishop “must lord it, 
not over his brethren, but over their vices;” 

and St. Gregory the Great was such a bishop.

WILLIAM E. KENNEDY, ’17. 

Simon Thornridge stamped into the bare 
room of the little cottage, his sixty years con- 
cealed under a fine show of spirit; but when he 
met the searching look of his wife his acting fell 
from him like a mask. 

“Well, Simon?” The grey old lady pulled 
her shawl tighter across her shoulders. 

“It’s no use, Mary, an old man can’t get 
work.” * 

“ You tried the new mill? ” She began to knit. 

‘ ‘ Every place! — they all told me I couldn’t 
do anything; that if I got work I would be 
cheating a younger and abler man out of a job.” 

He settled into a stiff chair, . the only one 
remaining besides the low rocker his wife 
occupied, and stared vacantly into the low fire 
in the grate. His wife had dropped her knitting 
and appeared t ) be sleeping. 

A knock on -the door awoke them. 


“It’s the land collector,” said Mary. “Let’s 
pretend we’re not in.” . 

Children-like they waited, hoping against! 
detection. The . knocking became insistent. It 
finally stopped, and a few seconds later the 
collector stood in the room.- v t ; 

“Trying to fool me!” he looked like a judge-- 
reproving two culprits. He was more than stem. 
“This is my fifth trip here; if I don’t get a 
payment now, I won’t bother you any more. 
The next time I come the constable will be 
with me.” 

“How can we pay you? . . You see we 
haven’t the money.” . . 

“I can’t help that. I’ve got to be paid.” 

_ When the collector left, the aged couple 
were staring helplessly at each other. They 
read abjection in each other’s face. ' 

Simon got up to reach for His pipe,, but he 
remembered he had no tobacco. His wife took 
up her knitting. . . She was darning mittens 
for her husband, but a glance at the yarn supply 
could tell one that the mittens would, 'be 
unfinished. • ' 

A neighbor came in. 

“I saw the collector leaving a minute ago. I 
thought you might need something.” 

“There's nothing — ” 

‘ ‘ N othing you need — ” 

“No, Mrs. Hess, we are well fixed.” 

“I just got a load of cord-wood; I can send 
Johnny over with a sledful.” 

“No; I’m sorry to refuse you, Mrs. Hess, 
but we have a supply in that covered box.. 
We are grateful for your sympathy.”. 

“Well, I’d better be going. If you want 
anything ]ust send for me. Cold isn’t it?” she 
added. . 

Hiram was’ stirring the dying embers. ■ “You 
wouldn’t accept her charity, would you, Mary.” ' 
“No, we’ve not come to that — we never will— 
but it’s hard.” 

“All our neighbors would say: ‘There, I 
told you so’ — ‘I knew they’d come to sorrow* 
some day.’ It would be better to die.” - 
“Yes, to die.” 

The ticking of the wall-clock was audible. 
“Mary, I’m going down to the village.” . 
“You’re not strong, Simon; be careful.” • J- 
The many people who passed Simon on his . 
way to the village all had a greeting for the old 
man. Those w r ho stopped long enough, to talk 
to him were the recipients of his • confidence. 
He told them that he was going on a long 


X THE NOTRE DAME SCHOLASTIC 


472 

journey never to return. “'That’s queer, 
said one; Simon going away! I would rather 
believe that the bridge over there is built of 
straw.” 

“Yes,” explained another old neighbor, 
‘little chance for him to go.. Where’s his money? 
Besides he’s been here all his life and is rooted 
in the soil. This village is named after his 
ancestors. So he ought to remain to keep up 
his family tradition.” 

Simon was back to his little cottage in a few 
hours. His wife did not look up from her 
knitting when he entered. He sank into a 
chair for relief. 

“Why, Simon, where’s your coat?” 

He could not look at her steadily 7 . “Here 
I got this instead,” showing a little package.” 

“That beats me. I believe you are getting 
foolish.” N 

“No, only wise.” 

“ Would you like to quit all this? ” he asked. 

“What! leave our home. . . the house our 
little Edwin used to play in? See, there’s his 
little cap hanging on that nail. And his little 
mound in the garden, we would never decorate? ” 

“Yes, but we will see him instead.” 

“Why do you stare so?” - 

Two days later the villagers asked one another 
if Simon had left. No one had seen him depart, 
so two of the group decided to go to his 
, cottage to find out. - ' , 

/.They had to break in the door. On the floor 
before a crude altar, on which a Bible lay open 
• were the rigid forms of the aged pair. A cap 
was clasped by the woman.' A scrawled note was 
on the bare table. • 

r “There is ho place 4 n life for old age. We 
m*e gone on the long journey 7 :

At the Little House on the Corner. 

> v A 

There was mourning in the Httle house on the 
corner. A bit of black crepe on the front door 
told the story*. A little woman had died that 
night, leaving behind her a husband and four 
ymung children. Grief, which comes sooner or 
later to every home, had called at that little 
house late in the evening and had stayed all 
night. ' 

When the ray*s of the rising sun shone through 
the window making everything bright, there 
seemed to be joy 7 in the air. But the big man’s 
heart in that little home was heavy. The dead 
wife and mother as she lay in the casket in the 
middle of the room seemed glad . in the peace 
of death. The face was still y*oung, bearing 
testimony of a life that had been lived in good- 
ness and sweetness. 

In the small yard behind the house the four 
children were playing as usual, unconscious 
of their great loss. Little mounds of sand and 
a tiny wheelbarrow made their one happy con- 
cern. The fresh morning air rang with their 
laughter in completest contrast to the sorrow 
that reigned within. 

In the parlor alone with the dead sorrowed ' 
the bereaved husband. A silent manly sorrow 
tore his heart, .but he was not disconsolate: 
his brawny hands fingered fervently a rosary. 

Outside, the world was busy, too busy to 
take note of the sorrow that had fallen' upon 
the little house on the corner. Delivery wagons 
rattled over the roughly paved street; a fisher- 
man was : advertising his catch to housewives 
of the street, and a gardener in early 7 - from the 
country 7- was . calling in lusty 7 voice his fresh 
vegetables. - On their way to work men saw the 
crepe, but, distracted with cares of their own, 
paid. at most but passing heed. .Women saw it 
and were only a bit more curious. The postman 
in his usual cheery mood passed it by 7- un- 
noticed. Half way 7 down the block a newsboy 7 
was calling the morning paper - with the account 
of yesterday’s battle at -Verdun, an excited 
dog rent the air with his yelps, — but in the 
little house a sad quiet reigned. - - 

, Sorrow abode in. the? httle house on the corner 
that morning. The candles sputtered in. their 
sockets and the wax ran down as if it too would 
grieve.::. The noisy 7 slain of the. kitchen door 
broke the quiet,' and; a child in sobs of wounded 
feelings sought the. caresses of its mother.

— "I shall go through ini’- plant next week and if 
there is a man there who wants to move on a farm 
I’ll let him go even if I have to stop a press.” — State- 
ment of President Hardy of the Hardy Printing Co., 
South Bend, Indiana. 

On the 6th of April there met in South Bend a 
group of farmers of St. Joseph 
The Patriot County and the Agricultural 
Employer. Committee of the Chamber of 
Commerce. Governor Goodrich 
had asked that meetings be held in each county 
on that date for the purpose of making plans 
for conserving the present food supply and for 
increasing food production. The farmers who 
gathered in the secretary's office were skeptical; 
they knew why they could not increase their 
product. The business men of the city who form 
the agricultural committee thought that they 
might aid the farmers. It was brought out in 
the meeting that there was a deartlijof farm 
labor and that farmers would not sow large 
crops because they feared sufficient help would 
not be forthcoming to reap them. One farmer 
stated that manufacturers in town -were, by 
offering large salaries, taking men from farms 
where they were* badly needed. It- was at this 
time in the meeting that Mr. Hardy .made the 
statement quoted above. It is a statement 
which reflects credit on its author; it is a state- 
ment which, were it the slogan of every employer, 
would help solve the economic problem — now 
nation-wide— which can be solved only by the 
co-operation of those who live in the city with 
those of the rur al communities. Let all of the 
employers search 'through their .factories; let 


them look for the man whose children have 
never seen the green fields nor breathed the 
pure air of the country. What matters it 
after all, if a few less automobiles be manu- 
factured every day when that amount of labor 
is producing the fundamental weapon of a 
warring nation — food? 

— President Wilson has issued a personal 
appeal to every citizen of this country to do his 
patriotic part in this time of trouble and to 

help husband “this oppor- 
Giving Our Best, tunity to demonstrate the 
efficiency of a great democ- 
racy.” Upon the unity of our national service 
depends the vindication of that efficiency. The 
equipment of a navy and the raising of an army 
are, as he says, the simplest problems of war. 
Upon the co-operation of the many who .will 
stay at home, upon their co-operation in backing 
and maintaining the fighters at the front, 
depends the outcome of the struggle and the 
realization of its purpose. And there is no 
person among the hundred millions of us who 
cannot « help in some way or in many ways, if 
he is but willing. Our cause, — being, as wc 
believe, an entirely just one — is worthy of the 
best that is in us. That cause involves our own 
most serious rights, and, perhaps, the security 
and peace of many nations. Let us bethink 
ourselves at once in what ways we can serve it. 
This present duty is a real test of- our American- 
ism. To meet that test with anything less than 
the best service of which we are capable would 

be un-American and treasonous. 



— “There are times in history when this 
world spins along so leisurely on its destined 
course that it-, seems for centuries to be at a 

standstill. There are awful 
The Time of Trial, times when it rushes along 
, at a giddying pace cover- 

ing the track of centuries in a year. These are 
the times we are living in now.” So said Premier 
Lloyd-George recently in his remarkable speech 
before the American Luncheon Club in London 
in welcoming the entrance of America into the 
world war. It is a terse truth which men of 
today should ponder. To live in such momen- 

1 

tous times as these entails upon most men, 
especially thinking men, added responsibilities. 
The merits of men as well as of nations are 
tested by their ability to respond to emergencies, 
and in the crises it is only the people who are 


THE NOTRE DAME SCHOLASTIC 


475 


able to rise to the occasion who can escape 
disastrous retrogression. 

We at Notre Dame have so far been only 
silent witnesses of the great events which are 
happening throughout the world today, but 
in many ways have we been preparing to take 
our part in them. The time for actual partic- 
ipation has now come. In a few months 
we may be widely scattered actors in a drama 
which may affect vitally - our whole lives and 
those of our children. As students of a Catholic 
college our responsibilities will be graver than 
those of most men. No matter how small may 
be our part, we should in a sense be leaders. 
We have learned here what true devotion to 
God and fatherland means, and on the battle- 
fields of life and death into which we may soon 
be thrust we must translate that knowledge 
into word and action so that all men may read 
what our faith and. our patriotism stand for.

Rev. James P. Heaney. 

m 

The University lost a loyal and devoted 
friend when the Rev. James P. Heaney passed 
away on April 14 in Mend.ota, Illinois, where 
for nineteen years he has been the beloved 
pastor of St. Mary’s Church. Father Heaney, 
always a heroic priest, won world -wide 
attention in the memorable Cherry Mine 
disaster tvhen at the imminent risk of his life 
he descended into the mine to give the. last 
sacraments to the men imprisoned there. R.I.P. 

< Professor John P. Lauth. 

In the death of • Prof essor^ John P. Lauth, 
at the Alexian ' Brothers’ Hospital, Chicago, 
on April 22,. 1917, Notre Dame has lost another 
friend of exceptional worth. The deceased was 
seventy-one years . old. Born in Luxemburg, 
he came to America at the age of sixteen, a 
member of an exceptionally religious family. 
His four brothers, only one of whom is now 
living, were ordained priests of the Congrega- 
tion of Holy Cross, and his two sisters joined 
the Holy Cross Sisters at St. Mary’s. After 
completing a course of study at Notre Dame 
University he established a private school in 
Chicago. His exemplary Christian life, combined 
with the strictest application to his chosen 
work, soon won for him the esteem of . many 
not only in Chicago, but in every part of the 
country, as a leader in educational and social 


circles. In Professor Lauth the Church pos- 
sessed a beautiful exponent of Christian ideals 
of life, and at the same time a powerful and 
tireless promoter of Catholic societies. He was 
for some years Chief Ranger of the Order of 
Foresters, a prominent member of the German " 
Catholic Central-Verein, and was actively con- 
nected with several other social and charitable 
organizations. The last years of his life were 
spent almost entirely in charity work. During 
life he avoided publicity as much as possible, 
desiring only that his work might be pleasing . 
to God, and now, after death, his body has been 
interred in the community cemetery at Notre 
Dame, removed from the highways of a material- 
istic world. By his, splendid example, this 
faithful, -God-fearing layman .of such rare 
habits of life has accomplished untold good in 
the cause of the Church, to which he was so 
consistently and ardently devoted. May his 
great soul be admitted quickly to the reward 
for which he labored -so long and. so .well. 

Mr. David Mulholland. 

David Mulholland, father of Emmet P. 
Mulholland (LL- B., ’t6), and of Clement 
Mulholland, a freshman lawyer and a resident 
of Corby Hall, died at his home in Fort Dodge, 
Iowa, on April 9th after an illness of two weeks. 
Mr. Mulholland had been active in real estate 
circles for a number of years and was most 
favorably known to a large number of friends. 
He was >a man of great business capacity and . 
a model Christian gentleman. To Clement, 
Emmet, and the other members of the bereaved 
family we extend our profound sympathy. 

Mr. Lawrence Maroney, Sr. 

It is with regret that we announce the death of 
Mr. Lawrence Maroney, Sr., of Denver, Colo- 
rado, .on March 29th. Air. Maroney, the father 
of Lawrence, Jr., of Corby Hall, was a promi- 
nent banker and lumberman of the western 
city. To Lawrence and to the other members 
of the sorrow-stricken family the Scholastic 
extends sincerest sympathy. R. I. P. 

To Mr. Clement Mulholland and Mr. Lawrence 
Maroney, Jr.: 

We, the members of the freshman law class, extend 
our heartfelt sympathy to you in this time of your 
great affliction. Words alone cannot ’ express the full 
measure of our sympathy. May our heavenly Father 
console you, as only He can, and may His loving arm 
be around you in this time of your great sorrow.

— ‘‘Manhattan Madness” presented in Wash- 
ington Hall last Saturday night was probably 
the cleverest photo-drama seen here for some 
time. Douglas Fairbanks featured as the 
skeptical Westerner in search of excitement in 
New York, and as usual, he gave us more than 
one sensation. A Ford Educational Film and a 
rollicking Keystone Comed} r added much to 
the interest of the evening. 

-v — Competing in the tenth contest of the 
National Rifle Association, the Notre Dame

The N. D. contingent led the third division 
of the parade, and though half of the student 
cadets had just organized into companies a. 
few days before they were highly complimented 
for their excellent showing. The most interest- 
ing company was the one composed of our 
athletes, who, notwithstanding their lack of 
equipment, compared not unfavorably with the 
cadets from Culver. " 

— The Cincinnati-Notre Dame debate sched- 
uled for Friday evening, April 20th, was 
unexpectedly cancelled at the eleventh hour by 
the 'Ohio school. The action of the University 
of Cincinnati was a keen disappointment to 
Notre Dame, especially so, since only the one 
inter- collegiate debate had been arranged for 
this year. The Notre Dame teams have been 
working for months on the question of state- 
wide prohibition for Ohio, which was the subject 
for debate, -and were confident of their ability 
to put up a strong forensic fight. Whether or 
not Cincinnati is willing to accept Notre Dame’s 
offer of a later date has not as yet been learned.

unhappiest in the history of civilization, his 
own happy countenance does not corroborate 
very well his contention. Pie drew, however, 
some very clever and timely deductions from the 
famous book of Sir Thomas More, “Utopia,” 
showing that even in the sixteenth century this 
interesting statesman anticipated the present 
high standard of progress. Doctor Walsh closed 
his lecture by calling our attention to the number 
of our young national guardsmen who have 
spent the last six months on the Mexican border 
and intimating that probably many of us would 
be spending our vacations in a similar manner. 

— Brother Alphonsus will give a talk before 
the Mishawaka Bird Club next Tuesday. “Our 
Birds of March and April” will be the subject. 
Brother Alphonsus is one of the best authorities 
on bird life in this section of the country, having 
been a close student of 'the winged varieties 
in Northern Indiana for the last fifteen years. 
At present he is conducting small classes in 
ornithology, and each day takes groups of 
students with him on his walks to observe and 
to study the birds. He is vice-president of the 
Audubon Society of Indiana, and will have an 
important part in the convention of that body 
in Michigan City, May io, it, and 12 of this year.

A fairy queen journeyed from mythland 
Monday evening, waved her mystic wand in the 
Rotary Room of the Oliver Hotel, and lo, there 

was wonderland! The seniors who attended 

, / 

the dinner-dance, will tell you that there was 
competition aplenty for the fairy queen, and 
our descriptive adjectives fail to marshal 
themselves when we attempt to picture this, 
the most brilliant affair in the social history of 
Notre Dame. 

From twelve states came the sixty-five young 
ladies who aided in making the dance such a 
success. Illinois and Indiana sent the larger 
quotas of beauty, but Pennsylvania, North 
Dakota, Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan 
and Ohio were also represented. When one at- 
tempts to describe these fair dancers, adjectives 
again become elusive, — the only 1 word seeming 
to serve at all being the one most employed by 
the seniors, “wonderful.” That ‘the, music 


played by Benson’s Orchestra was especially 
good is testified by South Benders who lin- 
gered in the street in front of the Oliver, bare- 
he'aded and in the rain, unable to tear themselves 
away from the merry melodies. 

The “Cinderella” dance .was a favorite 
feature of the entertainment. The men were 
sent into the Turkish' room while the ladies 
each removed a slipper and placed it in the center 
of the floor. Bach man, returning, selected 
a slipper, and then sought out his “Cinder- 
ella,” who was to be his partner for that par- 
ticular dance. 

At seven o’clock began the eight-course 
banquet with music by the Rag-Picker’s 
' Orchestra: During the dinner John Riley, 

Bernard Voll, Edward McOsker and Emmett 
Lenihan staged a syncopated sketch in which 
various seniors were gently scolded for past 
misdeeds. The dancing began at ten o’clock with 
the grand march led by President Royal Boss- 
hard and Miss Vera Thompson, of Woodstock, 
Illinois. At a late hour the dancers stood at 
attention for the “Star Spangled Banner.” 
Then three N. D.’s were shouted and the Senior 
dance of 1017 became a memory. 

The guests from out of town/were the Misses.

that he might be among the first to plunge into 
the water. He is wonderfully agile for a man 
of his years. He enjoys swimming, goes out 
to dances often, and is an excellent card player. 
Mr. Hake attributes it all to association with 
young people. He is the father of fifteen 
children, the grandfather of thirty-seven, and 
the great-grandfather of two. Four of Mr.

that Notre Dame is, among many other things, 
a notable nursery of baseball stars. After 
“Rupe” had made three hits in a game against 
Omaha, the last of which had won the game, 
Charles F. Carter, writing in the Denver 
Times last Satu'rday, was moved to poetry as 
follows: 

Reb hit one in the ninth, he did, he did! 

Reb hit one in the ninth, he did, he did! 

He hit one in the ninth, he did! 

And safely into first he slid ! 

And strong men fainted in the stand. 

And bellows roared across the land; 

They did! You bet they did! 

When Butcher, followed -by his pup. 

Tripled to right and sewed it up! 

Oh, boy! Oh, joy! Some noise! 

As Rupert Mills, all choked with poise, 

Soaked the next one on the bun, * 

And sent across the winning run! 

We think this pome is pretty punk; 

We’d better cut the bally junk. 

Or we’ll, get canned. Oh cruel twist 
If Fate should force us to enlist! 

The verses which even the author terms “pretty 

punk’’ were accompanied by a very good 

picture. of his highness, “Rupe.” 



Athletic Notes. 


The Drake Games. 

Last Saturday afternoon at the Drake Games, 
in .Des Moines, Iowa, Notre Dame placed first 
in the two -mile, relay, and third in both the 
half-mile and mile relays.. A Western Inter- 
collegiate record , was established in the two- 


1 


THE NOTRE DAME SCHOLASTIC 


479 


mile when Noonan, McDonough, Ka°per, 
and Meehan covered the distance in 7:55 4-5. 
The world’s record for the two-mile relay is 
held by Yale at 7:53. Captain Miller, Kasper, 
McDonough and Meehan in the one - mile 
relay were beaten by both Illinois and Missouri. 
Northwestern and Missouri finished ahead of 
the Notre Dame half-mile team, composed of 
King, Starrett, Mulligan and Miller. 

Since returning from Des Moines Coach 
Rockne on the’ advice of the faculty has for- 
feited the honors won at the meet. His letter 
to the Drake authorities is as follows : 


April 23rd, 1917. 


Mr. John L. Griffith, 

Dean of,, Men, 

Drake University, 

Des Moines, Iowa. 

My dear Mr. Griffith: 

I find on my return to the University that a serious 
question has' arisen regarding the eligibility of Mr. 
McDonough who ran in the two mile relay race. 
McDonough is eligible according to the Conference 
Rules. It develops, however, that he was not eligible 
according to the rules of the University of Notre 
Dame, being at the time of the race under faculty 
prohibition. In view of this, there is nothing to be 
done except to declare the race forfeited. 

I greatly regret this incident, but it seems best to 
hold to the University regulations even at the cost of 
serious disappointment. 

Very sincerely yours, 

K. K. Rockne. 


Notre: Dame;, 5; Marshall, 2. 

Big George Murphy held Marshall College 
hitless until the seventh inning last Tuesday, 
and long before that Notre Dame had com- 
menced a fusilade of hits which had driven one 
pitcher to cover, made a second look very bad, 
and gathered in a total of five runs, which was 
more than enough to win. A piercing wind 
blew across the diamond all afternoon, and its 
increasing velocity drove most of the spectators 
from the stands before the game was over 
and made it very uncomfortable for the 
players. 

The Notre Dame attack was smashing and 
aggressive, but by no means so productive as 
would be expected. Fourteen hits, seven 
bases on balls, and nine stolen bases ordinarily 
net more than five runs. Twelve men' left on 
bases indicates that Notre Dame was not 
achieving the hits when runners were waiting 
to score, but five runs was an elegant sufficiency 
since Murphy was mowing down the West 
Virginians with such precision. 


• Notre Dame scored the first run in the 
second inning. It came on Wolf’s single to 
right, an error, and a Texas leaguer by Spalding. 
In the third round Murphy, Dubois, and Allison 
singled in succession, and Murphy scored on the 
final clout. Davis replaced Workman in the 
box for Marshall in the fourth innin g and a 
fast double play saved him from trouble in that 
session. Notre Dame batted around in the fifth. 
Murphy started the proceedings by a siz zlin g 
liner to deep center and he did not hesitate 
until he reached second. Keenan waited and 
walked. Dubois hit an easy one to short, on 
which Keenan was forced at second, but Murphy 
scored on it, and Dubois went to second. 
Allison’s single sent Dubois to third, and then 
“Chief” Meyers drove one between short and 
third on which Allison and Dubois counted. 
“Chief” made a magnificent slide into second 
base on the throw in. The pitcher took care 
of Kline’s offering. Ward and Wolf both drew 
passes, filling the bases. Spalding grounded 
out at first.' Notre Dame threatened often, but 
did not score after the bat-fest in the fifth. 

Murphy appeared to be suffering from the 
cold in the seventh when he became a bit wild. 
A hit to center after he had filled the bases 
marred slightly what was otherwise a master- 
fully pitched game. Except in this one inning 
Marshall was helpless before him. 

Allison was the hitting star of the game, with 
a total of four safe ones, while Dubois con- 
nected safely on three trips to the plate. Murphy 
is credited with the only extra base hit, which 
was a double. Keenan had an off-day with the 
bat but he played a fine fielding game, with 
three put-outs to his credit, one of which he 
made on a short hard hit fly over second base 
which he grabbed after a fast run towards the 
diamond. Captain Kline shook off 'his “ jinx v 
and broke into the hit column with a single. 
The game was not started until four o’clock, 
and it was time for the third “square” before 
the last man was out. The score:
