Dormitory Council Launches Court [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 March 1939
Dormitory Council Launches Court In an effort to better conditions in Lincoln-Ashmun hail and with a desire to create a wholesome atmo ~ phere , a four-point program is being launched by the Dormitory Council headed by Martin V . Watters . This program is especially designed to create within the studen ts a feeling of responsibility for better group-life in the University . The first point is the establishment of a dormitory court , the membership of which will be equally divided between th dormitory . council and residents of the dormitory . The council representatives are to be appointed by that body ; students of the dormitory will elect their membership quota . The court will have a j udge , the qualifications of whom are to be determined by the body . There will be an attorney for the defense , a prosecuting attorney , and a jury chosen by the students . All matters affecting the harmonious social intercourse of students or detrimental to their moral or physical welfare will co...
Lette rs To E dito f [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 March 1939
Lette rs To E dito f To the Editors : Your editorial in the December issue of The Lincolnian invite 3 my attention to the rebuke which you would administer to me for certain utterances of mine in a sermon in the University Chapel on Sunday , December the 11 th . With respect to your charge that these utterances violated the canons of good taste , the validity thereof must depend upon who the arbiters of good taste in such matters may be , Obviously they are not to be found among those whose conduct is challenged in the statements made . I would be perfectly willing to submit the issue to such distinterested parties as may be able to distinguish be tween the conditions referred to and the sensibilities of those who may be offended or embarrassed _ly the disclosures made . At the same time it is interesting to observe in these days of insistence upon academic freedom and freedom of speech on the platform and in the press how your zeal for good ta ste should permit you to venture upon ...
" Movie " Ma chine Repairs Awaited [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 March 1939
Movie Ma chine Repairs Awaited If the length of time consumed is any indication of the thoroughness of the work being done , the repair of the motion picture equipment should be a well-nigh perfect job when it is completed . The four weeks which have elapsed since the weekly schedule was interrupted permit of any major corrctions ; resumption of the schedule with these defects eliminated will be a welcome boon to the student body . Never theless , because we remember the dissatisfactory perfo rmances which followed soon after the installation of the new equipment two years ago , we would inveigh against any repair work which places a prem ium upon the saving of expense . There is but small excuse for a campus motion picture theatre ; at best , it represents merely a compromise with a very vital social problem ; and , although retreat in the face of some social issues is not unkno wn to students of history , no one can say that such a step is even an attempt at a solution . _1-loweve...
Supp ort The Comm unit y Chest [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 March 1939
Supp ort The Comm unit y Chest A Community Chest is a most worthwhile project for Lincoln students to foster . Through it ‘ each one may identify himself , in a very tangible way , with movements of _‘ soc’ial significance . To attain its goal of not less than two hundred dollars , the Committee must have the cooperation of each member of this community . For some it will require more sacrifice than others ; but let no man plead his impecuniosity as reason for not aiding . In this campaign lip service will not suffice , more than mere good-will is needed . Only by actual gifts can one ’ s app roval be known . This is an opportunity to put into practice concepts of social awareness and social responsibility heard so f requently from the platform and in the clas sroom .
SCHOOL CONSOLIDATION [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 March 1939
SCHOOL CONSOLIDATION Slow progress is being made with regard to the local school situation . After our conference with the State inspectors , we feel certain that some changes will be made , at least in the physical plant of the schools . However , as gra teful as we are for this response to our efforts , we realize , nevertheless , tha t anything short of consolida tion into a . new building is , of necessi ty , inadequa te ; it can be only a tempor ary expedient , not a perma nent panacea . Consolidation is nee _ded , f irst , to eliminate the separate school evil ; second , to secure much need ed educational equipment which is lacking in both buildings . We await with interest the report from the Department of Labor and Industry with regards to the ‘ _sichools in the Lower Oxford Township .

Bouquets To The Deser vin g [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 March 1939
Bouquets To The Deser vin g Our gratitude goes out to our athletic department for the consideration it shows toward us . Its basketball team goes on a tour , plays several games , and sends back no word of the score at any game ; it assumes , no do u bt , that no one here could possibly be interested in knowing the results . And , since we are only the student body which the team represent s and whose support the athletic department seeks in its endeavors , we can hardly expect such information after each gam ~ ; for , then , it might be necessary to send a telegram which might cost even as much as thir-ty-five cents ; this , of course is no little item in an athletic

Lions’ Roar Frightens Shaw , Boosts C . I . A . A . Standing [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 March 1939
Lions’ Roar Frightens Shaw , Boosts C . I . A . A . Standing Reserves Tri umph Over Lincoln Humbles Howard Quintet York Team In Pre iiminar y Game With the blood of the Howard Bison still in their mouths , the Lincoln Lions pounced upon Shaw ’ s erstwhile invincible quintet and clawed it to shreds with a rousing 39 to 22 victory . The contest marked Lincoln ’ s third straight win and raised its C , I . A , A . standing considerably in view of the f act that the North Carolina combination enjoys a _num’ber of victories . Due to the complicated and uncorrelated system employed , it is practically impossible to ascertain the correct standing of the _team s to date . Lincoln , however , after losing their first four ‘ games , should finish high in the final ratings , if they continue playi ng their present brand of ball . At no time did the Shaw situation get out of hand . Teamwork and passing which were definite drawbacks at the beginning of the season , were about up to par ; much bet...
Highlights Of Sports [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 March 1939
Highlights Of Sports A super-hot race is raging in the C , I . A . A . circuit this year with Morgan , Union , Va . State , Howard ‘ and Lincoln all boasting crack quintets . Two things in particular make it practically impossible for Lincoln to win the crown this year . In the first place , three of its four games have been lost , and second , our entire schedule includes a scant eight C . I , A , A . frays . for the entire season , while other schools have about three times that many to play . How can we beat the teams if we can ’t even ‘ play them ! Why weren ’t Hampton , A . &amp; T . and St . Paul placed on the schedule this year ? Either the school refuses to finance the team on an adequate schedule , or the other schools ‘ refuse ‘ to play us . In either case ,, there is no point in remaining in the League at all if we can ’t obtain a sufficient number of games to warrant us a chance for the title . The Boxing and Wrestling season is in full swing , Lincoln , pointing...

C . last month , his first attempt at indooxi jump ing , he clea red the bar at six feet four inches .
