He was self suppiy n g during that period of his eduition and worked on a railroad in Ivnois to pay his tuition at Notre Dame. There, as an undergraduate, h.took honors in chemistry and upon omr pleting his course joined the facu'tf aa an instructor in that subjft, and later, in addition, became-th.- letic director. / On July 15, 1914, Mr. Rckne V^-narried Miss Bonnie Skilea ofSan- dusky, Ohio. They had four chfdren. . Fame Kept Spreading' As Rockne's fame spreaf with the success of his: teams yeir after year,'he came to be recogilzed by other coaches as one of /he but- standing football strategists. His formations and plays lave been copied ~as much as ttuse of any man who ever coacied football! Rockne contributed t^'the t.'evelbp- ment/of football in : many ways other: than aa a player and coach. He,conducted foothill schools, that were largely attended by college and high school coachss; he wrote nu- meroiis books otj. the game that "Footl a boy were widely circulated, and there was an ever-grt ow i n Demand for him as a lec£u re r on the technic and strategy/^ the game. He not. «nly was a player and teacher off football, but appeared as a charnjpj on . O f the sport, defending it forfine benefits that accrued to thoae/'^ho .^^ pa rt in it. iaU," he once said, "teaches ,, _ sponsibility--responsibility as tt ^Representative of his college; res P°Jfosibility to; his teammates and r *?!\Sonsibllity in controlling hi 3 pas slo ' ; as, 'fear, hatred; jealousy -am FJ^shness:' Football brings out tie viieat there is in everyone." · '/· As , athletic director at Notre / Dame, Roekne built up a system o mass athletics and encouraged every student to participate. "If football is a good sporj fo: the 'varsity player,' he argued "why isn't it a, good sport for the entire undergraduate body? Grant ed.-that it is, I want every boy a Notre Dame who cares to kick c football to have some place in which to kick it.'; ' That policy led to the formation af.many football elevens on Notre Dame campus, and there were teams representing at least a dozen 3ormitories that played regularly with each other. ., Got High Eating. The 1929 varsity eleven generally was regarded as one of the bes teams that Rockne had put to gether at Notre Dame. -Many ex perts rated it a better combination than' that of 1924 .which had th famous Four Horsemen -- Stub] dreher, Miller, Layden and Growls'--arid one of the greatest of al centers, Adam Walsh. The 192 team won. ,all of its nine gaines which 'were played away from home such a schedule being necessitate by the -erection of a new stadium a South Bend. None of the game was regarded as a soft spot. All of the Notre Dame team coached by Rockne were noted fo ·ement f n '. The ivrmy-Notr^tkame'games ' ave developed the highest standard! f sportsmanship and, while they' ave been ; hotly contested, have een devoid of individual or team rlction. Was Exaggerated. ' Coach Rockne -often was heard o remark that "they call me a ough neck," but that estimate of im was greatly exaggerated. He ossessed a culture that niad« him qualiv at home when addressing a athefing of society folks as he was ·hen speaking to' a football squad n the vernacular of the game. An outstanding characteristic of the man- was' the whole-hearted 1 man- er in which he went into every- hing.. He had Ideas and cpirvic- ions and the courage to present hem in forceful ana fearless lanr "uage. · In- 1924 it was revealed that iockne had served Notre Dame for everal years without a contract. During that time he rejected sev- ral offers from other institutions, ome of which carried salaries nearly twice as large as the $8,500 he was receiving. That same year a "Notre Dame Night" was held, which was made a nation-wide tes- imonial to Rockne. It was then announced that the coach had signed a 10-year contract to remain at Notre Dame at an annual salary of $10,000, The next year a spirited controversy in football circles was precipitated when Columbia university announced that Rockne had signed a three-year contract to coach football. While' Columbia insisted that ne actually signed the contract Rockne declared that he .had not been consulted about the actual appointment and that the agreement tie signed was contingent upon his being able to obtain his release from Notre Dame. The South Bend uni versity refused to grant that. In the midst ,of the 1929 season Coach Rockne was attacked will an infection In his legs and directec the' play of his team in aevera games, as well as. his coaching fju ties, from a wheel chair. Towarc the end: of the season his, condition became such that his ph.yaician forbade him to accompany his team to New York for the Army game the most important of Notre Dame's schedule. · In 1925 Coach Rockne became a | vij.--anc. .. ulcfc . s H ai ^ ing quality that has caused coni- .seball.

The president would be the real power in which this authority--to be exercised only in emergency-would be vested, but the farm board as his agent would carry out the operation. ' Only those commodities which arc not produced in this country in auC- ficient amount to supply the needs of the people could be received in exchange for our surplus crops, under the Dickinson plan. Wheat in U. S. "The commodities I have in miml mainly are, in this country, wheat, and in other countries, sugar and coffee.. I would permit the farm board to exchange, directly with, say, Brazil. It would give that coun try an agreed amount of wheat in exchange for an agreed amount of coffee. "Or take Cuba. You could get a pretty good bargain In sugar, even considering the low price of wheat In a straightout exchange of wheat with Cuba. In Brazil coffee is in the same situation. In both countries there Is a huge surplus. We havn pne in wheat, why shouldn't we get together for mutual good. Would Be Help. "What I have in mind is not any thing disturbing to business. On tin contrary it would help most bus! negses. The general price level i: already so low that the charge o lowering prices would hardly HI valid. "The distribution of the goods wi received in exchange for our sur pluses would be disposed of thru th agency which took it, say the stabi! ization corporation if 'wheat wer exchanged. This would be sold thr the regular channels of commerce thus moving our wheat and aiditv everyone concerned. Only Emergency. "Such a power could be exercised only in the event of a national emergency similar to the one we aro now passing thru." A congressional enactment would be necessary before this could bo done, Dickinson said. The present tariff law does not cover it, in his opinion. He is undecided yet it ha will introduce a resolution to this effect but regards it as likely. He does not agree with Senator Reed, Pennsylvania, that the farm board should be abolished, has no faith In either equalization fee or debenture under present conditions, and is convinced the board should be let alone to work out Its prob Iem9.
