College Health Facilities Generall y Are Ina dequate Amer ican Youth Comm [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 4 November 1939
College Health Facilities Generall y Are Ina dequate Amer ican Youth Comm Oxford Ministe r Introduced To Student Bod y The Reverend G . W . Campbell , pastor of the Oxford Presbyterian church , was guest speaker at chapel exercises on October 25 . He spoke on the subject , Youth Questions the Headlines . This title , he said , was taken from a radio program of the same name . He stated that the foremost question in the minds of youth today is , What is the clear cut cause for the present war ? It is not entirely a conflict for the preservation of democracy because Poland has been an undemocrati c country . This was forcibly illustrated when the aristocrats who ruled the country refused the British suggestion that s’he accept _aid _, from Russia in combatting Germany .

Lincoln Host To St . Paul [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 4 November 1939
Lincoln Host To St . Paul Enjoying its most successful gridiron season in years , the Lincoln Lions will play hosts to the St . Paul . Tigers on Rendall Field this afternoon . Although the Orange and Black of Lawrenceville , Virginia , have not yet numbered a conference foe among their victims , they must not be taken too lightly . Past games betwen Lincoln and St . Paul have decisively proved this fact . In 1936 , the courageous Tigens came from behind to overhaul the Lions , _7-6 . Then again St . Paul made it a dismal homecomin’g for Lincoln when they held the powerful ‘ 37 eleven to a 2-0 count . Last year , besieged by injuries , the Rivero men took a 19-0 lacing in a sea of Virginia clay . That humiliating defeat still _, rankles in the minds of _t’he local boys . Undoubtedly the Virginia eleven will miss the services of powerful , all-around Leonard Bates , who is now going through his year of apprenticeship at New York University ‘ in admirable fashion . Holding the key ‘ po...

Cam pus Tr ivia New Faculty Homes Fraternity News Midst the _solitude and tranquility of the vast Lincoln University farmlands are three new-ly-built red brick colonial cottages with ‘ beautifully wrought iron lanterns of early American design gracing the spacious white doors .

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 4 November 1939
BOOK REVIEW By Harold L . Gre gory Nevil Shute ’ s Kindling was a best seller several seasons _a’go . Now he has written a more timely novel , a story of what might happen to any family , in any city , in the world ’ s new kind of war , and of the fortitude , or possibly , ‘ resignation , of men without a choice concerning their destiny . Ordeal , his new book , is laid in England in the year 1939 , at a time when diplomatic altercations between England and the dictator had taken on serious proportions . Suddenly , without warning , England found herself the victim of ‘ bombardment . Her total unpreparédniess , the resulting confusion , and the close-up views of a few characters make for a rather mediocre novel . The story revolves about Peter Corbett , his wife Joan , and their two small children . They are concerned ‘ primarily with reaching a safety zone , and also with procuring the bare necessities of which the sudden invasion has deprived them . Suspended over the activities o...
WHY FIGH T ? [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 4 November 1939
WHY FIGH T ? Aside from the physical fatalities suffered by Germany and Pola n d , lit tle publicit y has reached us of the horrible effec ts of the European Tragedy . Though the numbe r of the dead may be comparatively small , each lost man re presents the spending of human life , resigned to his fate beca use some one or group- of people are ambitious . A recent radio commentator , in reporting the situation in Europe , said , All is quiet . But such a quietness is onl y superficial . Piercing the silence are heard the whirr of f actory wheels turning out b ombs , air p lanes , destroyers , the implements of war and the sobs of mothers torn between national loyalties and the love for their flesh and bloo _d . Th ey w ou ld ask themselves , Why fight ? , but that would be treason . German mothers must convince themselves that they are giving to a holy cause . French and British mothers are trying to tell their hearts that they are giving to stop the world’s greatest enemy . But af ...
Letters To Editor [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 4 November 1939
Letters To Editor Dear Editor : I want to thank the members of the Y . M . C . A . _ca’binet who made it possible for a large number of Lincoln students to witness the Morgan game by the sponsoring of a rabble bus to Baltimore . This ‘ gesture on the part of the Y proves to me that the Y is trying to do something to benefit as large a section of the student body as it can . It is my feeling that the presence of a large section of the student ‘ body aids the team consid er ably in attaining _ victory and the team can always depend upon the rabble at their games if they have a means of transportation . I am hoping that the Y or some other organization will sponsor a bus to the Union game as it is a very important -game and I know th-at the student body will want to witness it . I know that students will cooperate on a bus as a large number of fellow students had to be turned down on the Morgan game bus because of a lack of room . On to Union ! Grant -S . Shockley , ‘ 42 . Street Schoo...
LINCOLN RE NAISSANCE [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 4 November 1939
LINCOLN RE NAISSANCE Tomorrow some four hundred Lincoln students and alumni will be standing on the gridiron , with bared heads , singing ‘ the Alma Mater Hymn . When you do , don ’t sing it unless you love Lincoln . These were the closing words of Coach Rivero , addressing the student body in a chapel period . They marked the conclusion of one of the most profound and inspiring messages we have heard from the Chapel rostrum at Lincoln . Profound because they rang with bit ’ing truth — — inspiring because they were fired with sincerity . The Lincoln eleven came from behind to beat a power-

of Coaches Rivero _, Holland ai’id Turner . Then came the Morgan game the acid test . The field work of both Morgan and Lincoln was excelle nt . Both teams had the determination to win . In the waning minutes of the last quarter the fighting Lions crossed the pay-off stripe and converted the extra point , for the only score of the game . The team came through in the crucial moment and staved off a Morgan goal-line threat . No one or two men beat Morgan . No eleven men
