Attention Thumbers [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1938
Attention Thumbers By J . W . Thomas At last something is being done for the cause of the -poor thumber . For a long -time those of us who do our traveling -by means of -that pleading ‘ wag of the digit , have been neglected . Why , we have stood faithfully for hours by the side of a highway through all types of weather only to be passed _, up time an-d _‘ _again by selfish motorists who zoom pas-t in their high-powered vehicles , some of them even mocking us as we display our most humble look and pleading thumb , At times we are even chased by State policemen , Something just -had to be do ne , for things are getting awful . One loyal Brother of the Ancient Order of Thumbwaggers ( Lincoln U . Pa : _cha-pter ) reported th-at he was forced to wait fifteen minutes the other day for a hop to Oxfo r d , during which time twenty ca rs passed him . What did they _~ ‘ xpec t , — for him to walk the whole four miles ? Surely they did riot expect him to ride a bus . Well , we who have been d...

Student - Relief Committee Needs At Least $75 , 000 _-- Shangh ai—In a special memorandum outlining current needs for the present year , Dr . _. _1 _. Usang Ly , chairman of the National Student Relief Committee , -h-as informed the -Fund th-a-t a -minimum of $ 75 , 000 will -be needed , Of this amount it is hoped that at least $50 , 000 will come from the Far Eastern Student Service Fund . Relief needs are _ciivided into three types varying with the different cities , Dr . Ly poin-t s out . In cities which are normally great educational centers like Peiping , from which the -majority of students are evacuated , the pressing needs are ( 1 ) -travel subsidies to evacuating students , ( 2 ) , loans for living expenses , ( 3 ) providing hostels , and ( 4 ) arrange ment of supplementary classes for those who must remain . For those cities like Hankow and Changsha , through which students must -pass , liVing accommodations and travel subsidies are the greatest needs . Finally in those ci...
Students Given Chapel Periods _- Another forward step relative to student affairs has been taken at Lincoln . _- [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1938
Students Given Chapel Periods _- Another forward step relative to student affairs has been taken at Lincoln . _- Tu-esday ~ _- November 29 , marked the first student chapel service . Henceforth students will be granted _twa -chapel periods per -month for the presentation and discussion -of vital questions . This arrangement is a distinct advantage over la-st year ’ s almost infrequent gathe _~ ings in the gymnasium , _from which members of the Faculty were virtually excluded . Now a chance is offered for students to -express themselves , to voice their grievances and , commendations , too , before the entire University . It is hoped that the best possible use will be made of this oppor tunity . It should not be expected , no r perhaps , is it desirable , that the student body should limit itself solely to local matters in these assembly periods . Proble ms b eyo n d the ca m p u s h ori z ons , issues of current interest in the world of affairs , these , th ~ -student-s should not s...
Village School Situation [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1938
Village School Situation Elsewhere in this pa-per The Lincolnian reports the response it has receiv-ed from Harrisburg with regard to the local schools . As can be’ readily seen from these , an ~ change m ust be initiated by the local board of school direc-tor-s . Since th-e board seems content with the status quo , it is har _d ly possible that anything will be done without outside pressure , The plea , lack of funds p robably wil ] al ways be given . Since our last edition , The Lincolnian has lear ned tha t , even in the upper grades , on the second floor of the white school , the teacher has the different grades divided ‘ into sections . Section A will be composed of white pupils while section B will have Negroes only . Each section wil ] go to the blackboard separately . This is , of cou rse , an even _mora subtle and vicious policy than the separate school system . The - Lincolnian belie ves that both the Faculty _, especially those tax-paying members , and the student b-ody s...
F . E . S . S . F . In Dir e Need Of Funds ! [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1938
F . E . S . S . F . In Dir e Need Of Funds ! Writing from Shanghai on October 12 , Dr . Henry P . Van Dusen , chairman of the Far Eastern Student Service Fund , tells of visiting some of the students helped by last year ’ s fund . Peking students , -he comments , are under the immediate cloud of the _Ja-panese military ; they need every assistance and encouragement , Each of the students helped , Dr . Van Dusen continues , spoke with deep - feeling of their gratitude , several voicing the sentiment of -all when they said that they felt desperately isolated as though -all the world were against them , except for this demonstration of comrades-hip from the U . S . A . At Shanghai he met the 1 eade ~ sof the National and Local Cornrnittees , He was there on Chines&amp; Independence Day and found great -crowds celebrating and thestreets bedecked with C-hinese flags . Regarding the educational situ--ation Dr . _Van Dusen says , Yesterday I paid a hasty visit to the big office bui...
Notice , Dr . Imes [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1938
Notice , Dr . Imes To utilize the Sunday morning chapel hour for a harangue again-st the student body is to display , not only a lack of apprecia tion of the purpose of Sabbath devotions _, but also extremely bad taste . The speaker Sunday , Dece mber 4 , was guilty -of this . Even granted that Dr . G . Lake Imes ’ statements were true : that Lincoln students , generally , ar e lacking in good manners ; slovenly in d-ress ; coa rse in language ; uninterested in cleanliness , both of per son and of dormitory ; and withou-t character—with all of which Th-e Lincolnian does not agree—yet a religious _service is not the place to have one ’s dir ty linen washed . The week-day chapel period -s , more secular in vein , are better suited for this ‘ purpose . Then , too , to place the blame for such a state : of affairs entirely upon the students and to absolve completely everyone else-, is , at most , mere sophism . No one who studies the problems , one confronts ‘ in a community such as thi...
Thanks To Greyhoun d [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1938
Thanks To Greyhoun d All of us appreciate the humaneness of the driver oi the Greyhound bus who -aided the three students involved in the automobile accident , Monday morning , Novembe 28 . Had it not been for his prompt assistance the mer might have suffered severely in the bitter cold . Not only did he help then ~ to get back to the -school , but h-e did _ii most willingly and without charge . Surely such an act , and the attitude which fostered it , deserve only the high-e-st commendation . W-ere all operators of Greyhound busses as considerate as this one , Lincoln students would have no cause to complain . -
Don ’ t Violate Oxford Boycott [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1938
Don ’ t Violate Oxford Boycott I-n spite of admonitions to the contrary , in spite of the student b oycott initiated by campu s organizations , in spite of the ‘ principle involved , in spite of the discriminatory policy in vogue , in spite of the stigma attached to any act of segregatio n , some Lincoln students still patronize the Oxford theatres . Self-prid e , race-pride—both are meaningless to these men ; apparently they would sell all to see a movie . -Elsewhere in The Lincolnian appears the names of some such students . In each issue this’ newspa’per will be glad to inform the student body of any others , if yo u will furnish us with their names ; the source _: of such information , of course , will be confidential .
