Notre Dame, IN, October 6, 1917...
BY A. W. SLAGGERT, ' 2 0.
Facing an unknown world he dared a way
And through the wildering wood he blazed a path.
Through sleet and snow of the wild winter's wrath.
His fervid mission spirit to obey.
For him no plaudits, pomp and vain display.
Nor sordid aim; the great joys that man hath
When God's directions plan the aftermath
With timeless blessings, these were his. Portray,
0 world, a nobler soul, a grander deed.
Scan history's realm for works more worthy done.
Uncover heroes of a higher aim!
The world today, O Sorin, must concede.
That thou her everlasting praise hast won.
Who dreamed the dream that now is Notre Dame".
