Disce Quasi Semper Victurus Vive Quasi Cras Moriturus"
("Study like you will live forever; live like you will die tomorrow".)
Starting in the late 1870's, this rather intimidating phrase was the Scholastic Magazine credo. Ironically, the Scholastic proved to be the vehicle which has allowed the daily experiences of Notre Dame students during the past 150 years to truly "live forever". Scholastics are a virtual gold mine of Notre Dame history, and more importantly, of insight into the daily lives of its students. These first hand reports of campus life, written by student reporters, give a candid and personal view of important (and trivial) events on the Notre Dame campus. Joe Madonia, an '82 alum and partner in the Chicago law firm of Wildman, Harrold, Allen & Dixon, will edit a monthly column of excerpts from his rare and wonderful collection of original Scholastic Magazines spanning the period from 1869 - 1931.
Semper Victurus - stories from the Scholastic regarding the Warner Bros. film crew and their campus activities. They are from the May 1940 editions of the Scholastic and are provided by the Archives of the University of Notre Dame.
Hollywood Comes Here Tuesday To Film Scenes
Lights ! Action! Camera! -and it
isn't just another Camera Club meeting. It's the producer, director,
cast, and camera crew of "The Life of Rockne" transforming Notre Dame's
campus into a giant sound stage. According to a recent announcement from
the Warner Bros. studio, this Hollywood migration leaves Sunday and will
set up the mighty kleigs on our quadrangle Tuesday.
Donald Crisp is portraying "Father Callahan." This character really represents the late University president, Rev. John Cavanaugh, C.S.C. It is probably a reproduction of Rockne's meeting with "Father Callahan" that will be done here next week. -Ed Butler
