THE ONCE-A-WEEK REPRESENTATIVE [Newspaper Article] — Ithacan — 23 February 1928
THE ONCE-A-WEEK REPRESENTATIVE Nothing this year has thrilled the Once-A-Week staff more than last weeks column , The Vy of Phy Eds . It seems that the paper this year has been filled altogether too much with music and dramatic news and quite a few comments have been made as to the lack of I . S . P . E . mention . It is only natural that the calendar _be filled more or _less with recitals , etc ., from the music and dramatic departments as their work is more of an exhibitional nature . But there is absolutely no reason wh y we should not hear regularly from Phi Delta Pi and Phi Epsilon Kappa as well as Mu Phi , S . A . I ., Sinfonia , and Amards . Every fraternity and _sorority should have a reporter responsible for their news . The Once-A-Week staff is elected entirely by voluntary competition and unfortunately it is composed at present of only dramatic and Public School Music students . However , it ib a bulletin of all the Affiliated Schools and we want _^ news of every departme...

INTERESTING TO KNOW [Newspaper Article] — Ithacan — 23 February 1928
INTERESTING TO KNOW HELD WHISKERS SACRED If the beard has any standing in the world today , it is undoubtedly because of the Jews , who held their whiskers to be sacred , and swore by them . Later , the Turks did the same . The sultan s followers used to comb their whiskers after prayers , catch the hairs that came out , break them in two and bury them , on the theory that in some mysterious way the hairs helped to make soft walking to the _gates of paradise . This the Turks firmly believed .

BAND TO PAY TRIBUTE TO ST . PATRICK [Newspaper Article] — Ithacan — 23 February 1928
BAND TO PAY TRIBUTE TO ST . PATRICK March _19 th is to be the date of an Irish Concert by the band . We all remember the popularity of last year s concert . This one is to be even better . Two numbers , which ought to be especially enjoyed are The Land of the Mountain and the Flood , and Victor Herbert _s Irish Rhapsody . _The Land of the Mountain and the Flood by McCuhn _is one of the lesser used overtures of the Musical World . Throughout the number one _is reminded of rough , rugged mountain _scenes , with wild rushing _streams , and echoes of a far distant Alpine Horn at intervals , adds materially to the realism of the number . Victor Herbert is one of the most popular composers of the day . His Irish Rhapsody , which also features in the March program , depicts the character of both the people and music of the land of the Shamrock . The careful , _intermingling of favorite Irish melodies in a _very original manner makes the number very _interesting both from the theoretical as...
