Clark will represent the University at the Financial and Fiduciary Conference to be held under the direction of the Association of American Colleges at Atlantic City , March 19 to 21 . In view of the extensive program of concerts planned for this spring , the American University Glee Club , desiring to increase its membership , has issued a call for new members . All men in the College who can sing and who are interested , are urged to see Harold Higgle , president , Ronald McLaughlin , student director , or any of the other members , immediately . Dear Editor : One day last week as Mr . Prye and his men were doing some excavating for the new stadium , they found a human skull which created no little interest . It is recorded that in ancient days there lived a race of people that had very thick skulls . The one Mr . Prye found seemed very heavy and he took ...

It is exceedingly strange that Lynn Corson , the person in question , should acquire fame so late in his college career , but perhaps his case can be cited as an example of the old adage , If at first you dont succeed , etc . Lynn almost reached the pinnacle of greatness while on the varsity football team by establishing the season s fumbling record , having dropped the pigskin no less than 79 times in 7 games . There are many who are inclined to believe he could have made good as a waiter and perhaps would have given Roland Parrish some competition in the dish dropping game by virtue of his gridiron experience . However nothing is so fleeting as the glory acquired on the athletic field , and Corson s past achievements soon receded into the dim recesses of ti...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 7 March 1929
ments in favor of the rule ol three , what are the objections to it ? It hinders athletic relationships with other colleges . Three games a season , only one of which can be played off the home court—no wonder that the girls basketball team has found it difficult to schedule games with other colleges , when they are unable to grant return games . No wonder that it is necessary to include prep schools in the athletic schedule , since by the rule of three A . U . cannot meet regular intercollegiate contest requirements . Moreover , it prevents hospitable relationships in women s athletics between A . U . and other colleges , since the rule of three makes ( and has made ) it impossible for A . U . to accept games offered on other courts . Finally , the rule of three taxes to the nth degree the girls loyalty to the team and enthusiasm for sport . An hour of solid practice five days a week for over two months requires no little sacrifice of effort and convenience , and all for three game...
AROUND THE WORLD WITH FOLLY [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 7 March 1929
AROUND THE WORLD WITH FOLLY Hades I was told to go here by the editor , and due to the fact that a fourth cousin on my mother s side used to be a sheik of the Sahara , there is tropical blood coursing through my veins , the climate down here agreeing with me . I was forced to use my wits to get past the dogs who mind the gate , however , I had two copies of The Eagle with me , and I fed them my column , both dogs dying three minutes later of acute indigestion . Mayor _Mephistopheles , a profound Liberal , welcomed me as one- of his own , and inquired after the state of health of the American University faculty . I could not help but see a disappointed look in his face when I told him all were well . It so happened that the mayor had three more wives than Solomon , and he warned me , never to go near any of them , adding that I would lose one hair from my head every time I disobeyed . Imagine my embarrassment when at midnight of the second day I was getting bald . It was a hair in hi...
ROOMMATES [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 7 March 1929
ROOMMATES My roommate is my buddy , And neither of us study While at school . This should bind us both together , But Ive often wondered whether It really does . He wears my shirts , suits and tin , And Im sure he never buys A pair of socks . My tux matches my complexion , And it fits him to perfection At our dances . Him my girl I often lend , On his dates I always spend My own money . This story has no moral , But roommates shouldirt quarrel While at school . —L . Niekthaunr .

The _Georgetown basketball games this year proved the versatility of the A . U .- ites . One-Eyed Conley looked amateurish beside some of our gate crashers . Some things we cant forget are : Doc Priedheim coming in with a wrench , saying he was a plumber to fix a leak . Wally looking for hia friend who had his ticket . Rug Lambert dressed in his basketball suit so he could run in with the Georgetown team . Lumb keeping the key to the locker room until they let him in . Altland sweeping the gym floor so that it would be clean for the game . Twenty-five fellows holding the ladder while Swan went up to fix the ceiling lights . Hamilton trying to walk in backwards . Parrish and Ryder climbing up to the Gym balcony . Lud Johnson talking to the _gate-kdeper while Hetrick sneaked in . The little trick Jarvis , Martin , and Dietrick played .

AROUND THE WORLD WITH WALLY Northwestern Pennsylvania ( Where the Great Smokies really are ) It was only after much persuasion and his bringing into play all of his famous diplomatic powers , that Dean Woods finally gained permission of the American University Basketball Team to let themselves be excused from their classes so that they migh , t travel up to Northwestern Pennsylvania to engage Juniata College and Duquesne University in sociable games of Basket Ball . Huntington Juniata College is a very restricted school , and is hard to get into . But so would G . W . U . be if it were located in Huntington , Pa . One could not very well call Huntington a town—a novel experience would be a better name for the place . Jimmy Johnson must have been pretty well messed up from the long train trip , else that fellow would not have come up to him when the party got off the train and asked him if his party cared to stay in that big red building across the street—the gigantic two-story skysc...
Girls Win From Fairmont School [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 7 March 1929
Girls Win From Fairmont School Officials . It seems their plan was to let these convicts drive said cabs , and at the end of a week , the convicts would be open to charges of first degree murder . The way those bozos slide , skid , and smash up and down those mountains that are dubbed Pittsburgh streets would make a Rocky Mountain goat dizzy and those motorcycle riders who ride on a wall in the circus sideshows run for shelter . Street cars seemed at first to be a safer mode of travel , but how was I to know about the Pittsburgh fare system ? ( make your own pun ) . The idea is that sometimes one ia to pay upon boarding , and at other times upon leaving . ( It was on one of the latter street cars that the Scotchman was found after three days of searching . ) All the customer has to do is determine which is when . It perplexed me so that I almost decided to walk on the icy Pittaburgh streets , and only the fact that aating off a table is so much more comfortable than eating off a man...

While the basketball team was practising the fast plays and combinations requiring lightning footwork which defeated C .

The Sophomore musical comedy , which will be presented in the Gym on April 5 , is in rehearsal . Almost every day the practice goes on with Clair Altland or Louise Murray at the piano . The manager is expecting a telegram almost any day from John Tiller asking if he may hire the girls for a Broadway opening . His representative must surely be among the spies caught hovering around the curtain ends . Even Hurst Hall is hearing of musical comedy . Afternoon song rehearsal...
