NOVEMBER 20 , 1925 [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 20 November 1925
NOVEMBER 20 , 1925 _Important Work Carried on in McKinley Building Ovv jrnment Uses University Building as Laboratory . Probably the most observant of i * have noticed the presence of a large white building near the women s dormitory , and it is also quite probable that the more curious of us ( not necessarily _onl the women ) have found out the name of the building and have longed to investigate its carefully guarded secrets . It is lor such students , so closely kindreu to myself , that this article has been written . To satiate your curiosity , as well as to gather his necessary five hundred words , this insignificant person was directed to go thru , by foul means or fair , this building , known as the Fixed Nitrogen Research Laboratory , and to make a wrte-un thereof . A trip thru this building has all thf thrills of an airplane ride without the expense . At any mo 1 ment one is likely to be blown to atoms by some violent explosion , or mortally wounded by _flying _-efotnks of g...
TRADITION [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 20 November 1925
TRADITION THANKSGIVING H Tread lightly as you go about your daily tasks , r _ie _0 # [ students , step softly . For we who have entered the college tfw wear are creating traditions , traditions that will pass _dtfwn to [ the untold generations of those who follow us . We are building _rp heritage for sons and daughters whom we know not ; we mult fcuild carefully , proudly , that they may honor our memory fy ¦ respecting our traditions . I And what is tradition ? Do we mean to search out the experience of our fathers and apply it directly to our greatly / changed problems ? Do we mean to follow blindly the footsteps _| of others who have left only the echo of their voices ? No . Rather we must challenge the darkness with light , the silence ¦ I with joyous laughter , the unseen trails with those we are to bbi * e I ourselves . I Yet we must consider not only ourselves : we must keeg _iiagflhUy glowing the torch which we are to pass oh ; we must keep ¦ _JMlMrtfy fieaming the burnished...

Theater Topics [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 20 November 1925
Theater Topics We commoners of Washington who love the theater have a hard lot , for producers shun us , more or less . The diplomats and society leaders who form a large part of Washington s theatergoing public run up to New York whenever a notable attraction is billed . Consequently those of us who lack railroad fare seldom see the play of the year before it has lost most of its vitality in long runs in Gotham . Sometimes , however , we are fortunate enough to receive a premiere , for showmen realize that such a fastidious cosmopolis as ours passes capable judgment on all that comes our way . On such occasions , the galleries for the matinee performances are sold out long before , to the stu ¬ dents of schools and colleges here . ( Most Washington theaters , by the way , do not offer special rates to students !) When these rare treats come around , the matinee audiences are composed chiefly of careless looking college youths and dazzling varsity flappers . You can have a gre * t _...

School Museum _Discovered [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 20 November 1925
School Museum _Discovered watch of the vintage of 1836 . We ( _Continutd from Page /) After violently disturbing an unsuspecting Spanish class , we succeeded in forcing our way into this sanctum sanctorum . Ecstatic cries of Oh ! and Ah—ah ! variously disturbed the aforementioned diligent students of Spanish . Stealthily stiflling the squeaking which emanated from the long-neglected hinges , we students sneaked slinkingly into the somber chamber to view the dustburied wonders of the past . The very odor of the room reminded me of you , June , for I remembered how deeply interested you were in the deserted Lightfoot place ( will you ever forget it !) before our old high school gang split up . I can see you now , puttering about that great old house , and I can imagine how eagerly you would delve into the hidden mysteries of this veritable antique shop , were you here . It appears that some ambitious soul had once planned to transform this dingy room into a marvelous museum , and cons...
