The pomp and ceremony, w.hich were so closely associated with his glorious achievements.on the foot ball field, will be missing tomorow afternoon.

Solemn high requiem mass wil be held at the' same church at o'clock next Thursday morning in the presence of students, who b; that time will have returned from their Easter vacations. A part of Highland cemetery in eluding the Rockne grave, has bee consecrated for Catholic burial; th other part is for non-Catholics. Only 1,400 to be Admitted.

Only Woman Pitcher Signed in Organized Baseball Makes Debut. CHATTANOOGA. Tenn.; April 3. t?P--Virnie Beatrice Mitchell*-Jackie when she's on the diamond-has made a debut In organized baseball that many masculine hurlers might envy. The only woman pitcher in organized baseball struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in succession when the Chattanooga Lookouts met the New York Yankees, and then walked Tony Lozzerl to complete her mound duty. . But a, "catch," was seen in the act when the Babe politely tipped his hat when he came to bat, swung wildly at a couple of pitches that fans thot he might have hit easily, and let the third go past for a called strike. And Lyn Lary, one first base, did not try to steal while Jackie took a long windup. Spencer high school's athletic teams will be coached next year by Irving L. Nelson, former University of Iowa football and basketball player. Nelson won fame on the gridiron as a drop-kicker. Frank Church, Kensett, is also one of the promising hurlers for the 1931 Tutor squad.

Rockne Amateur Bouts Are Stopped for Service CHICAGO, April 3. (IFl--A. stirring tribute was paid to Knute Rockne at the Chicago stadium last night. At 'the conclusion of the eighth bout between amateur boxers from New York and Chicago, the lights were turned out, with the exception of the flood lights in the organ loft. The great crowd of 24,000 stood, silent. Then Ralph Barton, organist, played the "Notre Dame Victory March," but it was not the defiant score that has been sung by the fighting hordes of Notre Dame on many frist bitten gridirons. Barton played the stirring air in slow tempo. Then a sextet of lads from Notre Dame sang the chorus. When they sang, in slow measured time, the words "Shake Down the Thunder From the Sky," there was a low murmur. At the conclusion of the song, the aextet yelled slowly, "yea Rockne.-' The lights flashed "on. The crowd was silent for an instant longer. Then the bouts were resumed. Written for Central Press : Jly W. R, WALTON Knute Kenneth Rockne, genius of football, whose untimely death has stunned the sport world, took his'first step on the path that led to football coaching supremacy when in 1910 he borrowed $45 and with two Chicago chums boarded a day coach for South Bend. Rockne's two friends had persuaded him to enroll in Notre Dame university. Knute had rather planned on entering the University of Illinois, following graduation from Tuley high school, Chicago. But he wanted to be with his chums. So, instead, he became a student in the then virtually unknown Indiana school. Strangely enough, Knute gave no thot to football on entering college. He had played on his school team, but had only a rudimentary knowledge o£ the game. But he had been very proficient in track and field athletics, having scored many points for his high school In that field of sport. * + * Rockne, the son of an ambitious Norwegian carriage maker, was born March 4, 1888, in Voss, Norway. The family came to America when Knute's father, Louis, entered a specially constructed carriage he had manufactured in Norway to exhibit in the Chicago world's fair. Louis Hockne brot his wife, Martha Gjermo Rockne, and their children with him. Knute was then only five years old. The Rocknes settled in Chicago and there little Knute played w.Ith the native born children of the neighborhood arid became in short order a very thoro-going young American. Thus when he entered high school'he took naturally to American sports. Even at that age young Rockne displayed the · determined, resourceful character which led him to the peak of his profession. Entering athletics he became a star athlete--that was Rockne's way.
