Father Matthew A. Schumacher, C.S.C., Chaplain at St. Mary's College, had his own 30-year reunion. At his right, his brother Frank, of Tulsa, and at his left, his nephew, John A. Schumacher, Class of 51.

An unexpected visitor—and most wel­ come—to the Dearborn Alumni Club was Father Thomas Verncr Moore. O.Cart. Father Moore was a Minim in 1888 and is currently touring the coun­ try in the interest of the Carthusian Order. Despite the appearance, he admits to the age of 74.

^ Few (if any) pictures of the 1931 Twenty-Year Reunion were avilable for the Alumnus Reunion issue. To take up the slack, Jim Doyle, of Chicago, loaned the Alumnus a parcel of his pri­ vate stock of negatives and the pictures at left are the result. The Alumnus is indebted to Jim for the use of negatives, and for the opportu­ nity to finally do justice to the class of the Great Depression which came back in such great numbers and enthusiasm.

The Notre Dame Alumnus Honors for Armstrong James E. Armstrong, '25, Executive Secretary of the Alumni Association, was paid special tribute for his twen­ ty-five -years of service to college alumni associations at the annual meeting of the American Alumni Council which closed yesterday in French Lick. Mr. Armstrong, who also is Execu­ tive Vice-Chairman of the Notre Dame Foundation, received the cita­ tion commemorating his twenty-five years of service from T. Hawley Tap­ ping, of the University of Michigan, President of the American Alumni Council. Representatives of alumni associations from colleges and univer­ sities throughout the United States were in attendance at the meeting. A graduate of Notre Dame in 1925, Mr. Armstrong also formerly served as Director of Publicity at Notre Dame. He assumed his duties as Executive Secretary of the Notre Dame Alumni Association in January, 1926, and became Executive Vice- Chairman of the Notre Dame Foun­ dation in 1947 when the latter was organized to coordinate gifts to the University. Mr. Armstrong, who also serves as Editor of the Notre Dame "Alumnus" and of "Notre Dame" magazine, has been active with the American Alumni and the National Catholic Alumni Federation. He formerly served as vice-president and director of the American Alumni Council, and as Rev. James E.

EV. JOHN J. CAVANAUGH, C.S.C., president of the R University of Notre Dame, embodies in his life story the highlights of the great American tradition of opportunity. Son of a widowed mother, he left high school to become self-supjwrting and a help to his family. After he arrived at Notre Dame in 1917 one of his jobs was secretary to the University president. He graduated from the Notre Dame College of Commerce, in 1923, and accepted a job with the Studebaker Corporation in South Bend. At the end of two and a half years, the young e-xecutive decided to forego what already looked to be a successful business career and entered the Novitiate of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Father Cavanaugh was ordained in 1931, and not long after\vards went to study at the Gregorian University in Rome, Italy. He received a Ph.L. degree there in 1933. From July, 1933 until 1940 Father Cavanaugh served first as Assistant Prefect of Religion and later succeeded Father O'Hara (now Bishop of Buffalo) as Prefect of Religion. In 1940 he was made vice-president of the Univer­ sity and Chairman of the Board in Control of Athletics. Father Cavanaugh visited South America on an edu­ cational study for his Congregation. One of his early assignments as Vice-President was advisor for the picture " All-American" then being filmed in Hollywood. During the critical period of World War II he was instrumental in the successful adaptation of Notre Dame's resources to the U. S. Navy training program. In 1946, Father Cavanaugh was given the inevitable

recognition of his own outstanding leadership, and entrusted with the post^var presidency of his alma mater.

The five succeeding years have witnessed a diversified development of Notre Dame—academically and physically. Under Father Cava- naugh's leadership, Notre Dame has risen to new heights in intellectual prestige while a vast building expansion program is now underway on the campus. Under his guidance, Notre Dame pioneered pre-game television shows in the 1950 football season. Father Cavanaugh is a member of the Board of Visitors at the U. S. Naval Academy as well as the U. S. Air Force University, Max­ well Air Base, Alabama. General Marshall named him to a special Citizens Committee to study conditions at armed forces training bases. He is an active member of the Adult Education Committee, of the Ford Foundation. Father Cavanaugh is one of the most widely traveled men in the nation. He has visited every continent in the world with the exception of Africa and Australia. While still a senior at Notre Dame, he and three other students sailed to the Philippines on a freighter during Summer vacation. His travels as president of the University have not only been extensive and arduous but extremely helpful in the Univer­ sity's development. The president of Notre Dame is a member of the Board of Directors of the Great Books Foundation, and was recently appointed a committee member by the American Council on Education to draft plans for a new educational television program service. Father Cavanaugh has served well "God, Country and Notre Dame".

Dcv, please pardon me for burdening you with such a lengthy letter as I entertained no such intentions at the outset. However^ I did want to write a long letter, which I have handled in several Installments despite the heat, humidity, low celling, poor \'islbllity, old age, distractions, both at the ofifice and at home by the kids, with­ out the-benefit of air conditioning. This letter may contain some verbiage and di­ version but on the other hand I have elaborated at length for several reasons, namely, (1) since this is my first letter, I really had to knock myself out to make up for about two decades of silence to bring the record up to date, (2) the thought that perhaps a long letter would be a challenge to classmates of whom I have had no news for ages and provide the necessary im- petus for them "to open up" and write con­ cerning themseU'es and their families, which is the kind of neu-s we like to read about in our column. I like the way the '27 and '28'ers. and also the class of '34, among others, operate. It appears that although all members of the class do not write the class secretary annually, there is, however, a system wherdiy sufficient numbers The Century Club—an indigenous Chicago outfit composed of members of the '42 Class, do write thus providing broader coverage as to Indiriduals in the class.
