Not only are there none of the outrageous distortions of essential fact and ch;>rac;ici ballon which you have found in previous Llfc-of-So-niid-So Dickers; there is —according to Mrs. nockne, Noire Dame officials, Kockne friends, researchers mid writers—not a single incident in it that didn't actually happen. Only thing that worries Die Brothers Warner n little Is that about 90 per cent of the treasured anecdotes about Kockne have been omitted. Otherwise the feature would have become a scries.
