SATURDAY, APRIL <t, 1031 (AUK.V COUUIKK NEWS Showed America How to Play Football Son of Vikings Made Football History with Adventurous Spirit. HV WII.UAM IIKAUCIIEK .M.'A Service Sports Kditor Knuta Rockne was a son of the Vikiims. His Wood was like thehs and it called him to daring and lulvGiitiu 1 .? Just as it called HID Vikings of old Norway who pointer their ships into the trackless ocean The son of immigrants, who became the greatest football coach the world lias ever known, finally just as many of his Viking forefathers had died, upon a ship, outward bound on a Western trail. Rockiie found in aviation the Fame thrill that tbe old Norsemen fcund in (heir crude and restless ciaft u-ith which they dared the (icvils of the deep to do their worst. It was an .excitement lint satisfied a desire that was dear to him, a craving for adventure that Crow out of his Norse heritage. Tlie ships of his brave forebears rank in uncharted r-?as The ship of Rockne plunged to the earth In flames. The croft In which lie sailed differed from theirs, but the old urge that prompted him to nj was tlv: same daring that sent them into the lenip;stius darkness. An idea of tins spirit of Rockne's was conveyed during a recent visit to Notre Dame. Rccknc had an tui- toa'.cbile that had b?en presented to him in recognition of his cham- 'ilonship football team of the year before. He had been in one of the chemistry laboratories where he liked to dabble around with strange ccmpounds and mixtures. It was almost time for the squad to prac- . lice when he emerged, mot n'.e and invited me to ride over lo the football field, old Carter Field it was then. tt? leaped in and grasped the '.vheel. We started with a rush and a roar, much aft?r the manner in which his (rrr-at grid teams started Hardly had I closed the door than tbe machine shot out. up over the curbing with a terrific jolt. i vv vT i s ^t\ U —"•—- \i . . ~*" WINS ..

Speed His Tlienie Rockne never was one to stick lo roads. In bis driving he uset up a enr in a few months, and i' had to ti? a good car to last a yea; under his impulsive guidance. We grazed a Irce. Rcckne, with r.o display of emotion, kept talkin ii. that hard, metallic voice tha hii players learned to admire ani cbey. "I like to drive." he said. "Bu I like to fly. tco. Maybe if I hadn been a foot ball coach I would hav b.-ni an aviator. There's some thing about it that gets you." Wr; bumped and jolted across a shallow ditch at about 40 miles an hour. \Ve v/ent splashing straight through the center o[ a small pond, rrmllns; mud and water flying up over the hood. Finally we crossed another curtfig, wheeled along a Kiavcl read and pulled up al the fcotbail field. Rockivj shot on the brakes with a bang and we slid for a few feet Ivforc stopping. He leaped out and slatted at c:ice giving directions to the squad, dividing them ir.lo units for pas: ing, blocking, tackling and signals. The picture that he left with ir.? is that of him at the wheel steering an uncharted course iust as the Vikings of old drove their clout ships. If the Viking urge in him hadn't Ixcn £0 strong, Rockne might have become a famous chemist. His old ti'achets at tsolre Dame ottcn praised his brilliant efforts v.'itli the test tubes. But innan rest- li-sness finally brought him to the fcotball field, and to deeds of daring. It VMS the Viking in him thnt led to his envelopment ot the for- v.ard p^ss The story of that be- hem. As the Vikings roamed, h cams went, on jaunts from or :i:d of the country to the otlic seeking conquest, matching the! mettle against the mightiest in ev ery section. Rockne loved to go, bravely, as the Vikings went. i University of Michigan : i Received 18 Million No Honu* M in i ..'^L. !
