I CAMPUS OPINION I _luffllBllJllBflgiB _^ Words . Words , Words In looking over the last two issues of the EAGLE one is amazed at the _solidness to be found on page 2 under what is commonly called Editorials . Most of them are so long and impressive looking I feel sure no one but the proof reader has been able to wade through them . Just read these figures , and weep : In the two issues there are seven editorials for a total of 2340 words , or an average of 334 words per editorial . The preacher knows no one is converted after the first twenty minutes . The editorial writer should know that two hundred words is enough to put across any idea that is worth while . Nat only the editorials but then somebody comes along in CAMPUS OPINION and takes 365 words to tell us about Puppy Love . The subject is appropriate but 75 words would have told everything the author knows about that particular topic and would have been read by 90 per cent more students . What we need is more editorials and ...

_Ult _Wt fafft Someone recently made the observation that if the number of activities continue to increase at A . U ., classes will have to be dispensed with . While the statement was made in Jest , it probably expresses the suppressed desire of some collegiate individuals . When a chapel service savors of the academic there is prone to be a murmur of disapproval . Should not chapel services steer clear of this class-room stuff ? is the question asked . A prof announces a cut for his classes , and a gleeful shout follows his announcement . Its a great relief not to have class , is the general sigh of approval . Academic work piles up , and there arise student wails over the assignments . These same students proceed to engage themselves in all manner of extra-cur-ricular activities , then spend threefourths of the remainder of the time groaning about the classwork to be completed , and the last fourth is really occupied in doing the work . But why enumerate these characteristics of a...

Down through Georgetown , out across Key Bridge they went ; up through Clarendon and the heights of _JFort Meyer they forced their way , Lyon s Ford to the contrary notwithstanding . Into Arlington Cemetery went the joyful band only to learn that they had been deceived and that the true path led through old Alexandria and down along the Potomac . There was only one _rawilfy en route . A flat tire was repaired in record time with the help of the Chancellor , the Dean , ten men , and fifteen Senior women , all willing to lend a hand and all offering invaluable suggestions as to how it should be done .
