UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 25 April 1929
Eric Friedheim Book Review In the Hurst Hall reading room , there lies among the heterogenious assortment of books , a decrepit old volume of humorous stories , bearing the publishing date of 1889 . Although the jokes printed in its pages are of the type our grandfathers told their grandmothers , the collaboration of new humor by American University wits , has made the book a veritable oracle , combining satire with prediction . If you want to picture yourself in future years , just turn the pages of this volume , and you are sure to find yourself with your wife to be . Of particular interest is page 81 , showing a representation of Mr . Corson , and Miss Moulton enjoying a theatrical performance of The Passionate Woman featuring Will Wolowitz . A conception of Messrs . Shloss , and Nichthauaer is to be found on _page 35 . Nichthauser is a burlesque comedian while his partner is a politician . Ray Spaeth as the cheese salesman is well portrayed on page LOOKING THE CAMPUS OVER 41 . T...
WOLOWITZ IN SECOND CHILDHOOD [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 25 April 1929
WOLOWITZ IN SECOND CHILDHOOD Believe it or not dear readers , our portly hero , William Wolowitz , is a member of the Altoona Tribune Safety Club . The slogan of this organization is , Always look up and down the street before crossing . When Wolowitz saw the pretty coupon in the Altoona paper , he had me sign his name and forge his fathers signature so- he would be able to get one of those little brightly colored buttons , which shows a small boy standing on a curb stone with a football , reciting the club motto . After inducing me to send away for a membership , he led me to believe that he was founding a new order of some kind or other , with these buttons as the official Insignia of the organization . I almost fell for this cock and bull yarn , but the fact that I caught him standing before a mirror in the locker room , with his chest adorned with pride as he gated at the reflection of the button , saved me from his cunning . The Art of Thinking , by Dimmette , will be reviewed ...

NIGHT WATCHMAN AGAIN TRIUMPHS IN MYSTERY DRAMA [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 25 April 1929
NIGHT WATCHMAN AGAIN TRIUMPHS IN MYSTERY DRAMA An arch criminal came to American University lasf Friday _evening with a criminal record as black as General Millard s coffee . Fresh from foreign lands he came , with a string of foul deeds strewing in his wake . He had evil designs on our personal friend Lee Field , and all of us were worried what he was going to do to comely Miss Wolfe , the pretty Misses Darby and Barrett , and the harmless Jimmie Johnson . In Leon Schloss and Kay Heath lay all our hopes of bringing this vile fiend to his just due , and it is with credit to them that they vainly strived to do so for three acts , but were cheated from their glory by that ace of dramatists , Pete , the nightwatchman . With gun and dog , the old gentleman captured the villain , so well portrayed by Otis Fellows , just as easily as when he captured him trying to walk down in the woods with his girl after sun down , several weeks ago .
AROUND THE WORLD WITH WALLY [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 25 April 1929
AROUND THE WORLD WITH WALLY Princeton , N . J . ( The place to which the _Corsons have moved . ) Good old Camden , N . J ., is in mourning , for one of its illustrious sons has packed his grips , drawn his $ 11 . 55 out of the First National Bank , and pulled up stakes . The idea is that Lynn _Corson and his family , of which he generously concedes his mother and father are members , has moved to Princeton . Princeton was taken quite unprepared by the pleasant surprise , and only half of the Princeton boys had their college blazers on to show Lynn a letter of apology . But Princeton felt it rather made up for this discrepancy by the other attractions it has to offer . For instance , it has a police force , whose main duty it is to keep his shoes shined on Sundays and holidays , and to give tickets to every motorist who comes through the town at twenty miles an hour . This last seems Btrange , considering that the limit is twenty-five . But the womanly intuition of the officer of the...
Men ' s Quartet Gets Surprise Broadcast [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 25 April 1929
Men s Quartet Gets Surprise Broadcast College Quartet Much in Demand Coed Wins Highest Girl Scout Award Will Also Appear On Air Next Monday Evening from WOL The University male quartet received quite a surprise last Sunday afternoon , and incidentally the same may have happened to anyone who had tuned in on station WOL at the time . The crux of the matter is that the quartet made its debut on the air sooner than it anticipated . Dr . Kaufman , director of the quartet , had secured for the singers an engagement for an audition test , which is required before that station will accept any outside talent , and on Sunday afternoon they went down to the studio to take that test . After but one piece , the station operator seemed very much pleased , and made the astounding offer to have the quartet sing on the air that same day , in fact within a half hour . Rather overwhelmed , but nothing daunted , the quartet rallied to the occasion , arranged an impromptu program , and sang for about f...

Ward Memorial Circle Planned Chancellor Clark and Mr . Walter Representatives At Hearing No opposition to placing a circle on the corner of the campus at Massachusetts and Nebraska Avenues was offered at a hearing before the District Commissioners last Wednesday morning , April 17 . It will therefore probably be authorized , although the office of the D . C . Surveyor has informed THE EAGLE that the exact date when the Commissioners will place their approval on the establishment of the circle is very indefinite . As soon as the circle is author ¬ ized , the Fine Arts Commission will recommend the erection of a statue in honor of General Artemas Ward , who was second in command to George Washington and a distinguished Harvard alumnus . Congress has already consented to the erection of the statue , and the president and fellows of Harvard University have set aside a fund of $ 60 , 000 to be used for that purpose .
