Dear Mr . Bonner : We appreciate your kind letter a gr ea t deal , and it is most gratifying that you thought our article on the Negro in America well ha ndled .

The Howard-Lincoln Game This year will be the thirty-third year th’at Lincoln and H oward ha v e played their Thanksgiving Day foo t bal l classic . The game is significant in the fact that it is tradi . tional .

Scholarship at Lincoln University [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 23 November 1938
Scholarship at Lincoln University The object ’ of higher education is the training of the mind . Since the student will not live in a vacuum when he has graduated , his mind must be so trai ’ned _tha’t he wi ll act intelligently after he has received his degree , Or , to put it another way , the object of the college is the production of intelligent citizen’s . This is the objectiv ~ of the educat ’ional profession . Students know that the inco me of their parents has been drastically reduced and college means self-denial at home . The report from all over the country is that American students are buckling down to the business of education as never before . Genuine ‘ scholarship at Lincoln University seems to be dis app ~ _aring in the light of recent developments . The schola rship is so abnormally low that an average of 3 . 5 qualifies one fo r ’ participati on in extra-curricular activities . These activities are as stated , extra , and students with such low ‘ scholarship should...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 23 November 1938
The ac’ademic level of Lincoln should be ra’ised by making the entrance requirements more strict and by mak . ing continuation at the institution more difficult .
