THE CATHOLIC HERALD will be very sorry to hear that Mr. Alfred Grosch died on June I after many months of suffering. Alfred Grosch whem, alas, I never actual!). met, carries my memory back many years. From the start of the " new " Cserucam. Wiwi) in the mid-thirties, he has regularly submitted both verse and articles. I have kept no records. but I should think he would take first place in the proportion of submissions which we have been able to accept. And yet I see him-perhaps wrongly-as a very simple and unlearned person, in the usual sense of the word. But all he wrote, whether for publication or in private letters, reflected a mind fascinated by the adventure of a hard life. always interested in the significant detail, with a rare understanding of what will interest others, wonderfully fair and sympathetic in his judgments and filled with a genial, deep, practical Christian philosophy. Very happily, we still have an autohios graphical article of his called " Father and Son." It begins with a quotation from his father in the sixties: " If I were to die tonight. could have nothing to regret. I've had a good time all my life." And he shows that " the good time " had nothing to do with "good times." hut with his father's character. Alfred Grosch, I feel sure, could have said the same, and for the same reasons. on his own death bed. May he rest in peace.
