No " Great-I-Am " [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 29 January 1941
No Great-I-Am • _. Bobby Lee , especially , seems to have come into close contact with these two international cele- ‘ brities , and at the first Glee Clu’b rehearsal after the Christmas vacation Professor Dorsey prevailed upon ‘ him to tell the boys about his unusual experience . Bobby had the good fortune to have ‘ been in the same box with Miss Anderson , and to have conversed—even danced— with her . He described the ‘ great singer as extremel y charming and entirely innocent of the Great-I-Am pose . In fact , said Bobby , she talked end acted —and _ jive d —ju _st like anyone else .
The " Black Cloud " [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 29 January 1941
The Black Cloud ‘ Bobby seems to have been completely overwhelmed by one thing about Mr . Robeson , namely , the size of the man . He was so huge , Lee , said , that when you shook hands with him your hand got lost somewhere in ‘ his great , big paw ! Upon this Mr . Dorsey remarked that it was easy , from such an impression , to see how Robeson could have kicked a ball from one end of the field to the other , which is exactly what he is reputed to ‘ have done at Rutgers years ago . The Black Cloud , he had been called then .

By Gee Cee Fowikes , ‘ 41 ‘ 41 forges in and we attempt a salute to it . ‘ 40 ibrou’ght no bad things t’o Lincoln . Some of us sprouted wings and amazed our fellow-eaters at lunch with interesting tales of how we got lost over Oxford in a snow flurry and how thrip le-threat motors fumbled , stumbled , and grumbled ‘ at 10 , 000 fe et , all of which we listened ‘ patiently to . And about 150 of us trembled visibly whenever we entered the P . 0 ., and then removed sweat from our brow on seeing n’o letter from your Uncle Sam . —ALMOST—In ‘ 40 , we almost got pool tables , we heard a whisper of a swimming pool , ‘ and we ‘ nearl y had a Y that meant well , ‘ but we didn ’t : maybe ‘ 41 will do us better . JUKE _JAMMER S : Our New Year ’ s lament is for the lost swing era—the golden goblets swimming with jitterbugs —and all the glamour that enclosed 1934-37 , Do you remember when you waited up far into the night for Fletcher Henderson to swing into Chris Columbus and for - _ _Chu Berry ,...

ten by one ho loves Lincoln much ; but truth more . More ~ over _, ~ iti _si _~ ’ ot the intent of this writer to offer a critique of Alma Mater , ’ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘ W _~ , have chosen Lincoln . For this ch’oice none of us should be apologetic . Lincoln extends to any serious student’ an opportunity to acquire a college ‘ training at a very reasonable figure . ’ If one is in need of work , jobs are freely given . - Through the Business Office some of us have _beel _) given the responsibility for the cleaning of a hall , a classroom , a couple of lavatories , work in the refectory , arrangin g ‘ a few chairs , or a white collar job in the library . Perhaps no other college , north of Washington , presents as many avenues for student self-aid . It is equally true that no other college , north of Washington , tolerates as much negligence to work assignments . To those of us who take advantage of the lack of strict supervision and actual enforcement of these duties , this criticism is directed ....
We Must Rise To Action In response to a request of the President of the Studen ’ Council , Mr . Bir chard , the University Business Manager [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 29 January 1941
We Must Rise To Action In response to a request of the President of the Studen ’ Council , Mr . Bir chard , the University Business Manager has replaced all of the missing mirrors in the dormitory lavatorie ~ . This was done with the understanding that in the future the displacement of fixtures by students will appear on their college bill . _‘ Such an arrangement is fair to both ‘ th e students and the University . This brings us to another very pointed problem in our life on campus . Lincoln does n’ot possess the physical facilities of many other universities of its size and kind . In fact , what we have is _inadequate- _—to say the least . Objective evaluations of Lincoln ai’e’not made on the basis of our excuses , but in comparison with other institutions . We may fill our minds with mirages , but cold facts—in spite of what we think we rre—minimize our futile efforts to verbally compensate for what we have not . These words are writ-
Men and Inst _itutio ns [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 29 January 1941
Men and Inst _itutio ns And here are brief paragraphs on this selection , which ‘ by no means exhausts the supply , either as to type or number . Ohio Builds a Nation , as the title suggests , tells the story of Ohio ’ s contribution to United States culture ‘ and history , ‘ both in men and material . The novelty of this book lies in the fact that it is made up of One page biographies of men , places , and institutions , and as such makes very easy and interesting reading . John Brown , Paul Laurence Dun- ‘ bar , W’arren G . Harding , and Wilberforce University are all here in cryptic descript ion . Iris Barry , in D . W . ‘ Griffith , tell’s us ‘ about the man who made among others , the great picture : Birth of ‘ a Nation . incidentally , there was a shortlived rumor on the campus Saturday that we were going to see this particular film , and the men were looking out for it in keen anticipation , if only to study it academically as to its true meaning and value . Fortunately , or ...
History of a Book [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 29 January 1941
History of a Book Ruth Benedi’ct’s ‘ book reviews again the controversy between scientific fact and scientific fraud in the field of anthropology and race relations . I have not read this ‘ book , ‘ but recommend it j ust the same ‘ because of its author ’ s reputation and also _‘ _because of some very flattering reviews . Oliver Wiswell is a historical novel covering The American , English , and French world of the late eighteenth century , and my young friend , Roscoe Browne , tells me it is an excellent book . Read it ‘ before the year runs out . Last but not least comes Youth and Sex — a ‘ study of sex attitudes among 1 , 300 college men and women . This famous ‘ book has had ‘ an engaging history in our library . The present copy is the fourth that has been ordered because the first three were calmly appropriated ‘ by some gentlemen who wished to look into this whole problem much more intimately . Apparently their research continues with unabated enthusiasm !
