MEETS WITH ACCIDENTS CLASSICS TEACHER FACULTY PASSES ON STUDENT ACTIVITIES On November 30 , Mrs . Zucker , instructor in the Classics and French at the University , was deterred from her course by the cruel hand of fate . Her course happened to be by way of 12 th Street and Rhode Island Avenue , and the hand of fate was her own , which could not control the brake of her Ford . AH of this goes to show that Fords are fearfully and wonderfully made , for the rear axle was broken . Just ahead of me , said Mrs . Zucker when interviewed , were street cars , numbers of automobiles , and several pedestrians . Not wishing to use a pedestrian as a target , 1 aimed the Ford at a handy tree . Were you in it when it hit the tree ? cried the excited reporter . Of course 1 was . Well , when I had arrived at my alleged destination—that is , the tree , I was politely interrogated as to my murderous intentions by a burly policeman . ( . They always arc burly , you know . ) I explained that I merely w...

bishop McDowell speaks in chapel [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 17 December 1925

bishop McDowell speaks in chapel A PERSONAL ESSAY Tuesday morning , December 8 , Bishop McDowell conducted the regular chapel service . He took ai his text the familiar words from Mark 8 : 36 : For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world , and lose his own soul ? Bishop McDowell stressed the point that no man wishes to gain the whole world . For this reason , he said , many people fail to see the bearing of the text on their own lives . The Bishop would change the words to read , What shall it profit a man if he shall gain his whole world , and lose his own soul ? Every man has his vocation , and it is his selfish effort to surpass all others in that vocation that often leads him to lose his soul . What a man accomplishes has no finite value , he said , unless the soul of the man is in his work . Man s soul is his greatest treasure , and should therefore not be perverted in his attempt to gain material or social success . ( With Apologies to No One . ) One Day , ...

WOMEN TO GIVE CHRISTMAS PLAYS [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 17 December 1925

WOMEN TO GIVE CHRISTMAS PLAYS DR . TRAVIS LECTURES The women of the dormitory and some oi the men who live near the campus , under the direction of Dr . Hutchina , are to present two plays in University Hall on Thursday , December 17 . These play * bid fair to be the most interesting college event of the Christmas season . Dr . Hutchins has selected Two Crooks and a Lady and The Fifteenth Candle as the plays to be used for our dramatic debut . Both plays are short , neither one has an especially intricate plot , yet they will give us a good idea of the existing talent , and are considered rather clever skits . Although they have had only two weeks to work up their plays , the casts have shown excellent cooperation and are quite a compliment to Dr . Hutchins direction . The first play , Two Crooks and a Lady , is a bit of strategy with Ruth Ely playing Mrs . Simms-Vane , the Lady ; Lucille Imlay _, her companion ; Mary Florence Morscher , the French maid , who is also one of the croo...

STUDENTS HEAR ROMEO AND JULIET [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 17 December 1925

STUDENTS HEAR ROMEO AND JULIET Several students of the College attended the production of Romeo and Juliet , presented by the Washington Opera Company at the Auditorium on Tuesday , December 8 . The melodies and lyrics were exceptionally well-fitted to each other . The opera was attractively and richly costumed and mounted . The stage settings were furnished through the cooperation of the art stores of Washington , and many valuable antiques were used . While it is , of course , needless to sketch the plot , it is appropriate to call attention to the balcony scene . Romeo , coming into the garden , finds Juliet on the balcony . Then follows the famous love duet . Romeo seemed rather cool in his love making , for his voice lacked much of the fire , the fine ardor , of true youth . Although he has a voice of beautiful tone , wide range , and rare lyric quality , he did not handle it with the success expected of a grand opera artist . Madame Thalia Sabanieva , prima donna of the Metrop...

Basketball Season Now Open [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 17 December 1925

Basketball Season Now Open CO-EDS CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS X ¦ S ¦ % # The football season ended with both honor and disappointment with the disastrous game with _Devitt Prep on November 21 . The football team reversed all precedent by beginning the season in the stars and ending as a first year team of a small and new college . The season started off with a great surprise to about fifteen George Washington football players and to most of our student body . The George Washington team , considered one of the best in the South , failed to walk away with the game as per expectations . After this wonderful showing of a small __ first year team against a prominent University , a ratural reflex set in , and the next game with Emerson Institute showed a drop in form and punch . The final game of the season , with Devitt Prep , exhibited another disappointing drop , the American University men being beaten rather badly . However , this game appeared bad only in the light of past _performances . ...
