UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 21 November 1929
IICAMPUS OPINION To the Editor—Dear Sir : The library is a place for serious study . So reads the statement in the College Handbook . Although students are accustomed to hold the opinion that not all the rules and statements in handbooks are to be taken seriously , this is one statement which , from the real student s viewpoint , should be taken seriously . Now the point is that the use of the library is not at present confined to studying . The writer has observed on occasion at least three occupants of the main reading room who were engaged solely in the writing of personal letters . And when the letter was finished , they evidently had completed the object for which they came to the library that evening , for they departed . These letter writers were girls whose rooms in the dormitory would have served just as efficiently for this purpose as the main reading room of the library . In view of the crowded conditions prevailing in the library , particularly in the evenings , it would...

Frosh , Sophs Stage Campus Comedy of Errors in Deciding Wild Contest [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 21 November 1929
Frosh , Sophs Stage Campus Comedy of Errors in Deciding Wild Contest The biggest event of the year took place Friday , November 8 , when the World s Most Famous Players staged the Comedy of Errors on American University campus . At 2 : 30 that afternoon , a small crowd could be seen gathering at the edge of the girls hockey field , and a few minutes later the audience was roaring with laughter at the acrobatic stunts of the players . The audience had great difficulty in following the movements of the players , for the performance , which was supposed to be a game of hockey between the freshman and sophomore boys , resembled more closely a game of golf and dodge ball combined . Swanson , the cleverest of all acton , insisted on concealing the ball in his pocket and advancing with it to a secluded spot where he could tee off in peace , not pieces . He then proceeded to shoot the ball to the other end of the field while the clowns in the center dodged it . For proof on this matter cons...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 21 November 1929
Alumni • One of the greatest assets any university has is its alumni . The organization of graduates of the College of Liberal Arts in an Alumni Union last spring was a step in the direction of efficient functioning of the alumni of the College . The Alumni Association of the University has been functioning for several years . Well-informed alumni of the College and University can bring much pressure to bear toward the improvement of their Alma Mater . We need not mention the financial aid which successful graduates can render . There is , however , a greater function which all alumni can help fill , —that of healthy backing of coUege spirit .

Frosh Finds Dean s Office Instructive [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 21 November 1929
Frosh Finds Dean s Office Instructive Already in the brief career of American University the feet of many students have worn a narrow path into the office of Dean Woods . This year or November 6 and 7 it was considerably deepened and widened by the passing in and out of the entire freshman class , receiving grade reports from the dean , as their personal adviser . Most of those feet were attached to legs that trembled somewhat at the knee , as they entered , whether from nervous eagerness or dread it is hard to say . Coming out , the suspense over , many knees continued to quiver with relief , while a few , alas , were weak from the shock . According to the dean , however , the level of achievement in this year s freshman class is more uniform than ever before , and there are fewer failures .
