Lincoln Students Swamp Atlantic ‘ City In Summer [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 15 October 1938
Lincoln Students Swamp Atlantic ‘ City In Summer The headquarters ‘ for the Lincoln students who spent’ the summer in Atlantic City was the Y . M . C . A . on Artic avenue . If one asks them a’bout the summer , I am afraid they will say that it was the worst they had experienced . The cold and rainy season accompanied by the recession meant that the hotels did _‘ ~~ out the volume of business _‘ thè ~ had done the previous year . Con ~ equen’tly , the old Atlantic _, City , in which jobs were plentiful , yielded to a new one which contained so many jobless , that it was necessary , in some instances , to conceal the fact that you were looki n g for a job , in order to avoid being ejected from the city . The majority of the students lived in ‘ the Y . M _, C . A . and those who did not came around to play checkers , read the papers , or to join the frequent bull sessions with thei r schoolmates . These informal discussions were no less popular in Atlantic City than here on the _campu...

While Cheyney fought valiantly throughout the one-sided fray to hold the Lion at bay , the first few n ~ _oments of the game proved that the visitors were no match for the local eleven . When Bob Shade recovered a Cheyn ~ y fumble on the enemy ’ s 46 , the scoring spree started . Johnny Mack Brown picked up ten yards ofl Cheyney ’ s right tackle . Floyd Harris bucked inside the same tackle , reversed his field and galloped the remaining 25 yards for ‘ the initial touchdown . Brown ’ s try for the extra point was block- ( Continued on page 4 )

Book Reviews by Kenneth Dodson [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 15 October 1938
Book Reviews by Kenneth Dodson The tragedy of the Negro in a white man ’ s civilization has been stated many times by both Negro and white authors , but never with such terrific emotional power , insight , and detachment as exhibited by Richard Wright in Uncle Tom ’s Children . The four novellas of this collection are so arranged as to show the gradual maturing of the Negro masses , from a state of resigned individualism , ‘ to one of vibrant collective militancy , They sting and sear as they ga’ther momentum and the climax of the last story , the march of the Negro and white workers to the Town Hall to seek relief , h’as the impact of an ultimatum ‘ announcing the downfall of a class society . W’hat gives these stories such stark terror and poignancy is the subtle ‘ shifting of the basic emotion’s and the sense of helplessness which , until recent years , has prevented the Negro from effectively defending himself . In Big Boy Leaves Home , the contrast between the humorous by-plays...

" Ghost of Gut " by J . Riche Coleman [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 15 October 1938
Ghost of Gut by J . Riche Coleman They told me ‘ a new Lincolii was taking place—a new Lincoln ; and now I believe them , for that tower of tradition to which men of’ Lincoln once bowed seems to be gone . One of the last vestiges of the old school— Gut Bucket —- is no more , Oh , yes , that former _ Krum Elbow which overlooks Maple Avenue is still located on the top floor of Chesson—but the spiri t is ‘ gone—gone to share a niche in the halls of Lincoln-lore . —Will it ever again return ? Once the noble hall of Gut exh aled the greatest spirit man has ever known—true friendship . Will anyone ever again speak of a group of men so closely associated- —so closely associated because of daily sharing in one another ’ s joys and sorrows ? If ever the spiri’t of one for all and all for one was exemplified , it was there . The society in which they existed solidified their ‘ friendship and made them inseparable , The pulse of the rabble beat there—and now the pulse ‘ beats like the pulse of...
