IN WHICH I SPECULATE [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 8 October 1926
IN WHICH I SPECULATE The most important feature of the historic chair in chape ) is the inscription carved near the top , Unite the two so long disjoined , knowledge and vital piety . There could be no better motive for a university nor a higher purpo _ se for her students than to glean equal portions of morality and intelligence and to unite them into wisdom . Probably the best example of this union is found in the life of Abraham Lincoln as described by Philips Brooks in his memorial sermon delivered upon that solemn Sunday in Philadelphia when Mr . Lincoln s body lay in state in Independence Hall . Mr . Brooks said , In him was vindicated the greatness of real goodness and the goodness of real greatness ? ? * . There are men as good as he but they do foolish things ; there are men as intelligent as he but they do bad things . In him goodness and intelligence combined and made their best result of wisdom . History contains many pathetic examples of intellectual giants whose works ...
THE GOSLIN'S LAMENT [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 8 October 1926
THE GOSLINS LAMENT Quack ! Quack ! —or what kind of a noise does a gosling make ? Well , anyway , that s the way we Freshmen feel about the matter . Why they ever chose such a name for Freshmen , thus making the upper classmen the fug geese in their relation to us , i&amp; * not known . But then it was probably raining when Freshmen Rules were made , for goslings or geese are not afraid of water . But why lament a name when shoes are at stake ? With walking to the farthest door in Hurst Hall every time we want to enter or leave the building we have worn out considerable pairs of shoes . Pa says to send the bill to the Big Gooses —I mean the Upper Classmen . But what s the use of quacking ? Thcj re as near broke as the Freshmen with all this book buying . The Big Goose was heard to remark that the next time exits were clrmjred the goslings would he compelled to use the second floor front . The goslings don t quite understand the method back of this madness . But perhaps it s ...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 8 October 1926
justice was formed , presided over by the Royal Gander and his flock , or , as some would call it , an Eaglet court with Old Baldy presiding . In either case ( A rose is just as sweet by another name ) Courty Hayward occupies the top perch and is surrounded by Dot Mehring , from the seniors ; Art Gerth , from the juniors ; and Colie Christie and Aileen Vivath from the sophomores . And it might be added that the court is rapidly coming into its own and is functioning with efficiency . The nature and manner of the executive power of this court is something for the freshmen to find out .
FACULTY AT WORK AND PLAY Some Tour Europe ; Others Write Books [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 8 October 1926
FACULTY AT WORK AND PLAY Some Tour Europe ; Others Write Books Faculty vacations ! And with such a variety of destinations and experiences I Despite the fact that our faculty folk have acquired a new and varied fund of knowledge , from which they hope we will gain some profit , they are withal a very human lot . Dr . Collier visited a scene of interest , but couldnt spell its name . Dr . Shenton , according to his own report , did everybody on his vacation . You see , ethically , Dr . Shenton has improved very little . Chancellor and Mrs . Clark motored through Virginia and the Carolinas during the latter part of June and early July . They followed the Shenandoah Trail and returned by way of Richmond . We are wondering if they found the sunny southland more pleasant in summer than the Capitol City , where the mercury told the tale of 104 degrees in the shade . Our dean , with his family , motored to Northfield , Minnesota , shortly after A . U . Commencement to attend the Carleton C...
DR . ROBERTSON SPEAKS [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 8 October 1926
DR . ROBERTSON SPEAKS ( Continued from First Page ) Freshmen s expectations based on college fiction , dwelt upon the inevitable disillusionment of the new man . He discovers that his college is not Yale or Amherst or Harvard and he makes up his mind that what his new institution needs is college spirit , college tradition . Traditions , the speaker said , cannot be transplanted . What traditions should a young college foster ? The speaker expressed the hope that American University would always cherish its youth as a tradition , the freshman s attitude toward his college experience , an eagerness to meet the challenge uf a new situation , the spirit of wonder and romance . He declared also that a young college must have some way of life , some form of government , if only a working hypothesis . Out of the experience of early years at the University of Chicago , he advised that a tradition of courtesy be established—courtesy of men toward women students and not mere codes , courtesy...
A . U . BEATS EMERSON [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 8 October 1926
A . U . BEATS EMERSON ( Continued from First Page ) stone tore through left tackle , after £ l &lt; mg march down the field by our backs Sawyer furnished the big thrill of th ( afternoon when he snatched an Emerson pass from a group of opponents and dashed sixty yards through the entire team for a touchdown . The substitutes thai Coach Springston sent in toward the close were steadily driving to another score when the whistle ended the game . Those that remember last year s 12-C defeat at the hands of Emerson feel that we are soundly revenged in this one-sided victory . Our entire team played with plenty of pep and steam , something that was missing last year . The backfield showed that it is going to trouble all our opponents , and the line with a little more drilling will round into tip-top shape . Captain Birthright played a beautiful ? ame at left half , bringing the students to their feet time and again with his sensational running back of punts and his dashes around en...
STUDENTS MOVE CIVILIZATION College Theories Put In Practice [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 8 October 1926
STUDENTS MOVE CIVILIZATION College Theories Put In Practice In the midst of the general clamor that arose as each bus of old students arrived on the campus , one inquiry was heard most often . In the words of one of our famous Southerners What did you-all do this summer ? 1 —And oh , the number and variety of replies . Doctor Snyder and Chew Ltan Chan were ambitious enough to continue the winter s work at the summer session of Johns Hopkins University . Jake also called on all of his Ladies Aiders and conducted revival meetings , while Chew Lian visited in Maryland , Pennsylvania , and New Jersey , as her postcard correspondence testified . Publicity work for American University was Roland Rice s summer occupation , and the number of students he registered for A . U . proves the success of his work . William Warner stopped farming in Virginia long enough to spend some three weeks at Mountain Lake Park , Maryland , inducing the pretty girls of the Pittsburgh and Baltimore Epworth Lea...

STUDENT VACATIONS ( Continued from First Page ) men , Roland Parrish , who bummed his way out and back , and proved his prowess as a harvester . However , Bill , Freckles , Pete , and Judy , the four mules he drov &lt; for one week , furnished the most interesting episode of the summer which climaxed when Judy s nasty disposition caused Flaming Youth a trip to the dentist . Our Washingtonians were variously engaged . Vera Stafford majored in kindergarten work and minored—we suppose —in European correspondence .
