NORTHWESTERN VERSUS NOTRE DAME. Northwestern played Notre Dame in football last Saturday for the first time in 19 years. The games have meaning for me in part because the Northwestern/ Notre Dame game of 1948 is one of my earlier memories. It was the second time that I had ever seen a television set. Somebody suggested that my brother Elmer and I should pick out a team to root for, and we picked Northwestern because the Northwestern Railroad went right through our town.

So we were Northwestern fans long before we went there.
