Letter To Editor [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 13 December 1939
Letter To Editor DEAR EDITOR : Maybe it ’ s my ‘ background that makes me so zealous about things that pertain to religion , but I must ‘ bring to your attention a matter that is troubling me . I ‘ believe Dr . Dickey would be very disappointed if he knew that the institution he founded had gone to sleep on its Christian purpose . Now here it is a few days from Christmas vacation—and I haven ’t heard a word to remind me of this the most outstanding event in history . Not even a Christmas carol , Mr . Editor . It may be too late to do anything a’bout it this year . Now , wait—perhaps you could organize a group from the rabble to do a little singing . You never can tell , some of the faculty members might appreciate our caroling , If you think some of them would , let me know , Mr . Editor . I would ‘ be glad to assist in the organization of the group . Very truly yours , A Christian , N . B cussions both the good and bad points of the fraternity systems were pointed out . But even su...
NECTAR BOWL [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 13 December 1939
NECTAR BOWL By Glenn Fow ikes Drink ye of the draughts of the gods , and intoxicate thyself of the wisdom therein . O R C H I D S AND ALLEYAPPLES : We have on our campus at all times , believe it or not , a collection of fine art of some type , which is studiously and consistently ignored by the students . This state of ignorance is deplorable . As Ben Jonson says , Art hath an enemy called ignorance , Most of us feel as much at home in an art gallery as a snake does on snow-shoes . Mona Lisa to some of us is just another name for a Pink Lady . We can easily and definitely recognize a Petty or an E . Simms Campbell at a casual glance , ‘ but ask about Michaelangelo a n d t h e reply will come in the form of a question— _How many ‘ bases did he steal this year ? This state should not exist . We have at all times an art collection in the library- —wh y not take advantage of it ? YES , we got our note in TIME so what ? The write-up was stupendous . What a suave tone what ingenuity of a...

HIGHLIGHTS OF SPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 13 December 1939
HIGHLIGHTS OF SPORTS Lion Cagers Show By John Thomas ‘ 40 A varied assortmen t of reasons have ‘ been advanced for the disappointing outcome of the How-ãrd-Lincoln game on Thanksgiving day in Philadelphia . The milling crowd , the lack of police assistance , and the very amateurish job of officiating , seem to be the most popular . WALKER K . JACKSON did a wonderful job in working the Negro football public to a feverish heat . All of Philadelphia had been grooming for t’he classic since La : bor Day ‘ brought an end to summer ’s rollicking . The improvised Thanksgiving Day worked in its favor with many of the larger institutions recognizing the original date , Philadelphia ’s Finest assumed their finest manners , and made use of the currently popular passive resistance to perfection . With the public address system booming forth pleas for cooperation and the bluecoats displaying an air of thorough unconcern , eastern seaboard Negro socialites strolled w it h regal splendor across th...
Lincoln Defeats Howar d 14-7 In Annual Meet [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 13 December 1939
Lincoln Defeats Howar d 14-7 In Annual Meet Before a crowd of over 15 , 000 persons , L i n c o 1 n University ’ s Lions met and defeated Howard University ’ s Bisons at Drexel Field in Philadelphia . The game score was 14 to 7 in favor of Lincoln when the game was call _, d ‘ by the officials because of the over enthusiasm of the crowd , and darkness . This was the 34 th meeting of these two teams and it was the crowning game of the season for little Jim Baker , Lincoln ’ s fighting passer . However , Baker ’s running almost overshadowed his passi ng . Walter Mitchell , Howard’s great running and kicking ‘ back , proved to ‘ be a tough dose for the mighty Lion forward wall and he was the receiver of Howard ’ s scoring pass after a brilliant display of run_l’iing . Early in the second quarter , Baker comp leted a pass to Beverly that was good for 23 yards from the Howard 35 yard line and an attempted place kick by Milton Pearcy , kicking guard , fell short of the goal . After a seri...

P’reps-Sophs r _ue In Ann ual Clash Going into the annual fresh-man-sophomore gridiron clash as decided underdogs , Jim Lewis ’ line of Phi representatives held Monty Irvin ’ s favorite Pi warriors to a 19-19 deadlock on Renda ll Field , December 2 . Paced by Harry Robinson ’ s yardage eating runs and steady punting , the ‘ big sophomores went out to win early in the game . Marching steadily from their own forty , the Irvin-coached eleven pushed the sixty yards to the first score of the game in one sustained drive . The two Robin sons , Harry and Jim , sparked this drive as they did every offensive thrust of the class of ‘ 42 . Undaunted , however , the preps came back with a real display of spirit and when Captain ~ ‘ Butter Buchanan pounced on Stoke’s ‘ bad pass from center , the stage was set for the comeback . With Cameron Haynes and Mike Moore clipping off steady yardage , Big Jim Lewis’ boys knotted the count at 6-6 just before the half , The second half was a seesaw affair wi...
VOLUNTARY CHAP EL ATTENDANCE RI SES AT PENN STATE [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 13 December 1939
VOLUNTARY CHAP EL ATTENDANCE RI SES AT PENN STATE State College , Pa . ( L . P . )—Without any compulsion whatever , the average ‘ attendance at Sunday chapel services at . the Pennsylvania State College has nearly doubled during the past eight yea rs . This has ‘ been called remarkable by a number of ministers and church leaders , said Professor John H . Frizzell , the College Chaplain , explaining that the average attendance has jumped from 597 in 1930 to a record high of 1040 last year . Professor Frizzell offers three explanations for the popularity of chapel—the high quality of the speakers , the fine music , and the general interest of students . Outstanding ministers and laymen of of all creeds come from a dozen states each year to address the service , and a splendid mixed choir of 110 students provides the music . Another popular feature is the prayers and invocations by the chaplain . They have been so well received that a collection of these prayers was published in book ...
