A Freshman Answers A Blase Sophomore [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

A Freshman Answers A Blase Sophomore In the last issue of The Eagle there appeared an article which , it is to be gathered from the very literary qualities contained therein , was a result of the budding genius of one of those most effervescent of mortals—if one can so term them—a sophomore . In the course of this very interesting article , in which the writer purported to set forth the dangers menacing the school on account of what he was pleased to term the freshman invasion , one of the chief dangers alluded to was that of allowing a freshman s cranium to develop . If , of course , we are to allow the sophomores to judge the freshmen in the light of their own example , the danger becomes a very real one . Witness , for example , the present state of swelling to which the respective top-pieces of but year s freshmen have attained . That this swelling tendency is inherent rather ( Concluded on Page 4 , column 4 )

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

College Spirit Much has been said about college spirit in the last few days . But one important factor has been overlooked in those discussions , and that is . college spirit is not necessarily determined by what one person may have to say abou _* it : the statements of the individua mav only reflect his own spirit . In our opinion , the college spirit of A . U . has always been remarkable , both in quantity and-quality- It takes real spirit to cheer a losing team . And win or lose , A . U . s teams have had cheering support . Let s keep it up ! There is . however , another side to the question . That is , are we maintaining that spirit ? Coach Young and his football team have started the season with an overwhelming victory . But the coach is calling for men—men who will have hard work , inglorious work with the scrubs . Increasing registration in the College has not meant proportionately increasing numbers on the football squad . Men , actions speak louder than cheers . From now on...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

I CAMPUS OPINION j | i To the Editor . Dear Sir : Although there is much opinion on the campus apropos of one thing or another , it is all too seldom that it is expressed in the columns of The Eagle . The practice of saying , Ill write to The Eagle about it , is a common one , but the threat is rarely if ever carried out . This is indeed a pity , for even if no worthy cause was rightly championed , it would still afford fuel for the Editor s fire during the long winter nights . My contribution follows . This year we have done away with the cherished Freshman Rules . To thinking college students this cannot but seem a wise move . The spirit of A . U . has been one of friendliness , and it should continue to be so happily marked . However , it does seem to my mind to be illogical when such rules as keeping off the grass , reading the bulletin board , and learning the few college songs have been placed under the ban , while the delightful diversion of wreck ¬ ing freshman rooms is cons...

Female Etiquette or Dress a la Mode [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

Female Etiquette or Dress a la Mode Many New Books Put on Library Shelves New Musical Comedy Plans Under Way Did you know it is decidedly de trop for the young ladies of A . U . to appear on the campus bareheaded ? The prevailing mode is the wearing of a brightly colored scarf knotted picturesquely behind the right ear—or is it the left?—with the ends dribbling on your neck so that you keep thinking one of Mr . Varrelman s insecta is crawling there . It is a style complimentary only to flamboyant brunettes , coy blondes , and all other types except seniors , who are too old . The freshmen , of course , have no desire to emulate their superior sisters because of a tender attachment to their green berets . Latest Edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica Leads List From the College library comes the news of the addition of the fourteenth edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica . Other books have been placed on the shelves by the History , French , Political Science , Economics , and Engli...

Ideal home sites were advertised , but business -wasnt so hot . The great trouble was that these Greek realtors were too dumb to think of appropriate names for the subdivision . The best they could do was Servia-self , or Weeser-view , or something like that . A name like Bosporus Beaches or Galata Gardens might have appealed but , never having attended correspondence schools , these Greeks never thought of names like that . Constantine , however ...

Pep Meeting Held For First Game [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

Pep Meeting Held For First Game Coach and Captain Inspire Students And Team for Fight Dan Terrell was the lively leader of a spirited pep meeting held during the chapel hour on Friday morning preceding the game with Shenandoah , October 5 . After we had sung Sons of A . U ., and had given a couple of yells , Coach Young was introduced into his part of the ceremony with a yell . Our new coach had had several of the students ask him if our team was going to beat Shenandoah , and he bad disappointingly answered them with the words , I don t know . He repeated this in chapel , and explained that he never said yes or no to a question such as this . A coach can t look ahead and point out the winning team of a football game any more than a professor can look ahead and tell who will flunk or pass a psychological exam . After answering that question for us , Coach Young said that he expected American University to treat her guests from Shenandoah as guests from another college should be trea...

Coach Calls for More Football Men [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

Coach Calls for More Football Men Weakening of Team in Second Half Due to Lack of Material A football team is as strong as its reserve strength . Coach Young sat in his office in the gymnasium and looked out the window at the rain-soaked campus . It was raining , steadily , dismally—a typical October day in Washington . I am disappointed , he continued , in the way the men have turned out for football . Theyll come out for a day or two and then when a bad day comes , they quit . We have a small squad , 15 or 20 . who are regulars in turning out . This lack of numbers is one of several difficulties that we are facing . Still , I am well pleased with the spirit , work , and effort of the men who are working hard . I believe that our team will give a good account of itself this fall . Id like to have more men out—men who may not make the varsity , but who will be vitally important in building a real team . We should have at least 30 men at every practice . The coach attributes the appa...

Informal Dance Proves Success [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

Informal Dance Proves Success Good Melody by Bran Hughes Music Is Feature of Student Council Popular Dance The first dance of the year was held in the College gymnasium on Saturday , October 5 , by the Student Council . The dance was informal , being in the nature of an introductory party for the new students who had a chance to learn the steps . of their partners . Dancing will be popular with the freshmen this year if the number in attendance on Saturday is any indication of the future . This note was welcomed hy the chairmen of the various social committees who may now plan more elaborate entertainments without fear of going in the red , as they say . Bran Hughes first band furnished the melody in a style that was really appreciated by the dancers . Another fact that should not go by unnoticed is the improved punch that we are getting this year . Naturally it keeps a crowd around the serving table , but the reward is worth the pushing . The gymnasium was decorated simply but effe...

Credit Given for Orchestra [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

Credit Given for Orchestra Augmented Organization Strives for Improved Execution in Additional Programs The orchestra is progressing rapidly toward the fulfilment of its one ambition , which has always been to furnish worth-while music whenever it is desired . The string section has been augmented by three violins and a cello , and an oboe has been added to the woodwind section so that the instrumentation covers a convenient range for ex ¬ ecuting most selections . The orchestra is now a two-hour course , and we may expect big things from it this year . It is already playing a daily chapel program . Dr . C . H . Leineweber is the instructor and director of the orchestra , A recent election gave Calvin Brown the position of manager , and Carl Levin that of librarian . Any one possessing any musical experience is urged to join the orchestra .

Mif » Wulf Plans Archery as Sport [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 10 October 1929

Mif » Wulf Plans Archery as Sport Equipment Ordered for Classes in New Recreation With the advent of archery , an interesting and rather unique addition to the women s athletics comes to the campus . Miss Wulf hopes to start the bow and arrow practice as soon as the equipment which she has ordered , arrives . Three classes of girls interested in the sport are being formed , two of which will meet twice a week , and the remaining one , once . Since archery is not so strenuous as hockey , basketball , and the rest of the women s sports , girls who do not usually go out for athletics , will be able to participate in it . Archery has 1 become increasingly popular in the women s prep schools and colleges throughout the country , so it is to be hoped that it will meet with as enthusiastic a reception at A . U . as it has elsewhere .

This system is not to be limited just to hockey , but will extend to the various sports throughout the year ; basketball _, soccer , and volleyball .
