Notre Dame had one of its rare seasons of depression when Moose Krause was a senior; there were four games in a row in which the Irish scored not a point. But the season was redeemed by a 13-12 victory over Army, and Tackle Krause, who incredibly blocked or helped block eight punts, was one of the heroes of the day. Moose Krause prefers winning seasons but can see some handy values in the losing kind: "You learn to accept adversity and master it." As a coach and athletic director Krause has been prevailingly blessed with winning seasons. His one time-out was a World War II tour of duty as a Marine Corps lieutenant assigned to air-combat intelligence flights in the Pacific. For the last 10 years he has been director of athletics at his alma mater. He has also found time to lead South Bend's United Fund drives, serve as a director of the National Conference of Christians and Jews.
MICHAEL N. VUCHNICH
Businessman and civic leader, Toronto
Mike Vuchnich grew up in the coal mining hills of western Pennsylvania and quit school at 14 to keep his family by mining coal himself. Only after three years and the insistent arguments of an old teacher was it possible for Vuchnich to enter high school. But high school led to football, to a prep school year at Kiski and then to Ohio State, where Mike is remembered as one of the finest centers in Columbus history. The education that football led to then led Mike into business, eventually to the presidency of the Lincoln Electric Company of Canada (gross last year: $6,000,000), to a distinguished civic career in Toronto and to Canadian citizenship. A leader in the enlightened management of Canadian business, Vuchnich has been a pioneer in industrial profit-sharing, an active fund raiser in behalf of retarded children, of the YMCA, YWCA and of the United Church of Canada.
ARTHUR S. LANE
Lawyer and jurist, Trenton, N.J.
Captain of the unbeaten football team, president of his class for four years, chairman of the Undergraduate Council, winner on graduation day of Princeton's hallowed Pyne Honor Prize as the outstanding man of his year—that was Lane's undergraduate record. Instead of gravitating to a business career, he took his law degree (Harvard) and was just settling into practice when World War II began in Europe. Lane volunteered for active Navy duty before Pearl Harbor, rose to the command of a destroyer escort on antisubmarine service, today holds the uncommon high rank of captain, USNR. Back home in New Jersey after the war, Lane took up again the profitable practice of the law but, true to the public-service tradition of Pyne Prizemen, accepted duties as assistant county prosecutor at the same time. Two years ago, in a career that continues, he became a judge of the Mercer County (N.J.) Court.
JOSEPH M. HARRER
Atomic scientist, Argonne National Laboratory
RENSSELAER POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE
Atomic science as a career had not been thought of when Joe Harrer was playing in the line for RPI and getting his chief kicks helping to beat Union, CCNY and Worcester. As a science graduate in those still-Depression days, Harrer went to work for $15 a week. Even today, given the fact that the public service of the United States pays niggardly wages for the same talents that are highly rewarded in business, he is still underpaid by Silver Anniversary income standards. Harrer's compensations lie in other directions. When the wartime call went out for imaginative engineers who could function with top-secret effectiveness in the atomic bomb program, Harrer qualified and went to work. Today he applies himself to an assignment equally challenging, if not more so: as a boss engineer in the reactor division of the Argonne National Laboratory he is harnessing atomic power for peaceful purposes.
Motion picture director and producer
When the All-America votes were counted in 1933, Southern California's great guard Aaron Rosenberg was a virtually unanimous choice. Rosenberg, a varsity player for three years while the Trojans were winning 30 games, losing two under Coach Howard Jones, was one of the reasons for Southern California's then dominance of the college game. (Ironically and characteristically, Rosy rejected UCLA and chose Southern California after a UCLA coach told him in a recruiting tête-à-tête, "You'll never make it at USC with all that competition.") On graduation, Rosenberg headed into the Hollywood jungle to learn the movie-making business. There, when he was treated deferentially as a football hero (and given little to do), he cursed out his bosses and told them, "Get tough with me and show me how things are done." Today, at 46, Rosy is one of the top dozen movie producers in America.
