This was the cover for the “Little Giants” issue of the October 1924 Caveman. From this issue, “The football team has got under way, losing the first game to Purdue, defeating Monmouth by a one-sided score. At this writing Notre Dame is in the offing. The usual interest will be shown in the game of the Vaughan versus the Rockne, student versus teacher angle. Aside from this aspect, the game will be an important one.”

Pete Vaughan was a Crawfordsville High School graduate who played football at Notre Dame and was quite a star. On that team was a young Knute Rockne.  By 1924 Pete Vaughan was the football coach at Wabash and Rockne was coaching Notre Dame.

Best wishes of the season…
