Kickers and Kutters Although the strenuous protests on the part of students to the present cut system may have _soma grounds , it is interesting to note that the hardest kickers are usually the habitual butters . Further investigation shows that almost without exception , the average grades of these _individauals showed marked improvement in the last grade reports over any reports last semester before the present cut system was established . Some day these kickers may thank the administration for making it harder for them to be kutters . And just a word : before you kick about the kut you krave but kannot kapture , look on the kard seeking to _diskover if your grades have not kum higher bekause you kouldnt kut so many klasses since this klever ruling kut off all chances for _PxkURPR .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 11 April 1929
Parlor Furniture That furniture will wear out is inevitable . And if it is used by ten times as many people in one instance as it is in another , it must inevitable wear out ten times as quickly . Let us say an ordinary home includes four people . The furniture there , under the same kind of care will last ten times as long M it would in a public room used by forty people . That is selfevident . Seventy women live in the Womens Residence Hall . And every evening fifty or sixty men are allowed in the parlor . So the furniture is used , not just ten times as much as in an ordinary home , but several times ten . Thus , no one can reasonably expect it to last the many years it would in a home . The administration of the college have very wisely recognized that fact , and have placed an arbitrary fee on the students for the replacement of broken and worn-out furnishings . This fee is fixed at f 1 . 00 • student a year , and is deducted from the Students _Activity Fee . This year the fund...

There is a galaxy of stars among the lineup , including Versatile Varrelman and Whalem Woods , both star players , while Go Gettem Golder will discard Chaucer for the catchers mit . There is a good chance , however , of seeing some queer brands of baseball at any of the faculty games . One can almost picture Hairbreadth Harry Hutchins on second base . What ho !

would be , and I found out that they went back to the old system . Later I heard that the school was ranked as an _A-l school . In the University of Hongkong , at Pekin , China , the dean thought it would be a good idea if the students refrained from playing cards in the gym or any other place on the campus . He also thought it would be nice if the boys did not play checkers during the time while classes were in session . It was thought by the large majority that the students should be given a place to play cards when they had the time . The leaders of thia movement were put on probation , and the idea abandoned by the faculty . As I went into the bookstore a few days later to buy a package of ciga retts , I saw the dean playing checkers with one of the football players . About an hour later I found out that the dean was beaten three to two by this heavy fullback , and had gone back to work . When I came back to the States I thought that it would be interesting if I visited some of ...

Checker Boards Take Count in Long Contest The many well-worn checker boards lying in several hidden nooks around Hurst Hall and the Women s Dormitory attest to the fact that there are a host of would-be checker champions in the student body . At any time of day in any kind of place , small groups of checker enthusiasts may be seen clustered around two active participants of the cracker-barrel sport . This is in no way an indication of the academic spirit of American University , but the fact that there is a checker tournament in progress provides an outlet for any energy that has survived over a semester of mental drudgery . Due to Raymond Spaeth s kindness in giving away a clock given to him , the winner will not have to be content with empty praise . At the rate the tournament is progressing , however , the clock will be worn out by the time the last match ia played . Time only will tell who gets the time-piece , but the winner may get the prise only by virtue of the fact that he ...
