He never gives you ill? ! impression that you're talking In} I; a superior being. And the clliiii'X of his coaching career hasn't 1 gon? lo his twad—rather, il IAS floored .him. He's been a good mixer in Ihe- MS years he's been at Duquesne, Uni- vcrslty here. And in ihal time i.e has demonstrated that his game oi golf isn't so hot—except ihovj rifling lee shots; li'.al he's n .stickler iof discipline on Ihc field; Ihal his words on the gridiron are slum and clipped, and thai around Hie lable, wllh old grods, cr nl home with his wife and two kiddies, lie's an easy fellow to know. His 1GO pounds were n distinct surprise to Kiuite Rockne al Notre Dame. Elmer developed Into probably the bcsl fullback Ihc Irish had, considering his weight. Where biy Jumpln' Joe Savolrll, who followed lalcr, bulled his way through a Ihi? wllh his bed, Uivclcn was a k:iil- Ing fullback, preferring lo slice through a note ralher lhan lo bai- ter his way with weight. Probably his most brilliant pcr- • formance was against Stanford In the ' Rose • Bowl game on New Year's Day, 1925. In that contest he ran 70 yards for a touchdown alter Intercepting a pass, punted mil from behind his own goal line CO yards, and Ihcn intercepted another Stanford p:\ss and dashed 8S yards for anollicr touchdown. Layden married his swccll;eart of school days back at a Davenport. la., high school. Mrs. Layden is « beautiful woman, a gracious hostels and a friend of Elmer's friends. Their children arc Joan. 0. wr.o has Just started lo school, and Rimer, Jr., 3. Both children's laces are freckled and their noses arc inclined lo be "pug." Their lets arc long and gangly, just like ir.cii daddy's. - .The Laydcns' Pittsburgh home Is a duplex in Mt. Lebaucn, a suburb. It conlains nolhing to remind ilie visitor thai the head of ti;c Layden house was one of Hocknc's hrighicsl stars. All his pictures and mementoes are In Ihe home o! nh parents at Davenport.
