AROUND THE WORLD WITH WALLY [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 26 September 1929
AROUND THE WORLD WITH WALLY Harrisburg , Pa . ( said by its Mayor to be a good town ) This time I write of Harrisburg after having visited that fair city as you wiH judge from the scarcity of compliments about it in the ensuing literature . The town consists of Market Street running north and south , Front Street running east and west , and trains running late . Of course there are other streets , but outside of being mere thoroughfares , these byways serve no great purpose . Market Street however is revered as the street on which is located one of the Seven Wonders of the world ( or at least of Harrisburg . Ah ! you wonder what this sanctified attraction might be , — and youd still wonder after you saw it . Harrisgurgians call it the Subway . I first heard of it when I was receiving directions of how to get some place else in Harrisburg . Go to Market Street , I was told , and go through the subway . It starts somewhere between 4 th and 16 th Streets . So 1 went to Market Street , ...
Educational Value Of Debate Outlined [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 26 September 1929
Educational Value Of Debate Outlined There are many college _stuents who conceive the idea that debating is preposterous . They think that the time and energy devoted to this subject will not bring any rewards . These students , unfortunately , are not able to grasp the real significance derived from such a study , and as a result they either deride it or pass it up as useless . On the other hand , there are students who are able to see the real value of debating . They know that the initial business of debating makes them differentiate between what they know and what they do not know . They also learn to refrain from making judgments based on ignorance . They discover , through this work , the first standard for sounding the ahallowness of their knowledge on other subjects . They acquire the idea to examine a question critically , to find out what it actually involves , to define terms with precision , to distinguish the relevant matters from the irrelevant matters which confuse th...

Dormitory Puts On New Coat Of White For Fall A . U . Downtown Schools Hold Registrations This Week Every Building Has It s Quota Of Surprises Which Are Welcomed By Students One of the first things to be noticed as the students returned to American University this September was the large number of improvements which have taken place on the campus during the summer . Two coats of special paint on the outside of the Women s Residence Hall make the walls less susceptible to leakage during heavy rains . The color of the building which is now light gray , is more in harmony with the color ot the other buildings on the campus . It is expected that next year , the Men s Gymnasium and Battelle Memorial will be similarly painted . Safe and sanitary passage is now complete between all the buildings on the campus by virtue of a new concrete sidewalk between Hurst Hall and the Women s Residence Hall , which replaces the old cinder path .

Dr , Jackson Reprts Seminar Cruise [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 26 September 1929
Dr , Jackson Reprts Seminar Cruise The American University Seminar to Palestine has returned , and reports • most interesting and successful trip Dr . Jackson , of the department of Religion of this college , who personally headed the Seminar , makes the following summary of the trip for THE EAGLE . Beyond the Mediterranean lies Palestine—today the center of focus of the eyes of the world . Religiously , it is common knowledge that Jerusalem is the Holy City for not only both branches of Christianity but for Jews and Mohammedans as well . In Jerusalem the point of sharpest friction between the latter two groups is the widely heralded Wailing Wall . This , it is contended is the last remnant of the ancient Solomonic Temple and the only place within the city where Jews may worship . Ostensibly , then , the tense situation in Palestine grows out of what one scholar has called religious sentiment over a bit of stone wall , supposed to be Solomon s but certainly the work of Herod . But i...

A . U .-- All Out ! The BIG game of the year takes place this Saturday , when the American _Eagles meet the George Washington Colonials . The game will probably be played in Central Stadium . It is listed as the big local drawing card this weekend . Last week the Eagles met the team from Shenandoah College and romped home on the long end of a 51-0 score . The outweighed Coi lonials put up a game battle against Manhattan College , but lost by a couple of touchdowns . Everything points to a good , hard game when these two teams meet this week .

U . was practically deserted on the afternoon of the G . W . game . Almost every man and woman was cheering on the team that fought so hard and clean for the Orange and Blue . This year we have our big chance to come back and sink the Colonials . Eleven ...
