CANON STOKES SPEAKS AT CONVOCATION [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 11 February 1927
CANON STOKES SPEAKS AT CONVOCATION The greatest period in the life of a University comes when it is most earnest in its search for truth , said Ansel-Phelps Stokes , Canon of the National Cathedral , at the con vocation service in chapel February first . Truth is manifested in three ways , he continued , in fact , theory , and expression , and facts and theories are of little use unless embodied in some noble action . Truth is like a golden thread which runs through the whole of our college program . In history , in science , and in literature we have the different mediums of truth which are knowledge versus ignorance , law versus anarchy . The youth is beset by questions , he added , and frequent questioning is the key to wisdom . All truth it inter-related and is a manifestation of Truth which is God . Ye shall seek the Truth , he quoted , and the truth shall make you free . Canon Stokes was , for twenty years , secretary of Yale , and Dean Woods said in the introduction that he h...

_SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOiIpW &gt; 4 _XXXXXXXXXX _^ _WXXXXXXXXXXXXXX ! _ _©©©©® &amp; ( I TIP _^^ _Sk TiPr _THrlis * v 1 _^ _fcU _IJ _£ S 3 _? _IPC-tldiUi- I Student n in Politim . The American College is vapidly becoming the center of political leadership in the country . The college professor has gained precedence over the lawyer as the most able politician , and the college students of today are probably more actively interested in current world affairs than any other group . The general public does not take an active interest in politics today , as evidenced by the small percentage of qualified voters who visit the polls , which was estimated to be only about thirty per cent at the last election . This lack of political interest is probably mostly due to the fact that there are no comparatively big questions at issue . The two major parties have trouble finding sufficient grounds upon which to build a platform , and then they are so similar that if a staunch partizan of a...
February Is Month Of Pop ular Saints [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 11 February 1927
February Is Month Of Pop ular Saints Two saints are especially populai in college circles . The Freshmen—because they are young and inexperienced have chosen Saint Patrick as their guiding spirit , and proudly do they show his color from the moment they reach the campus until they graduate from the infantile stage into the dignified standing of sophomores . The other saint belongs to every body . Freshmen , sophomores , juniors , seniors , and even an occasional faculty member are ardent devotees of the cult of Saint Valentine . At this time of the year — the early part of February — great anxiety is manifested among the followers of Saint Valentine . For soon approacheth the day wlien the righteous shall receive their reward . It is on the fourteenth of February that Saint Valentine gives his blessing to those who have devoutly followed him throughout the year— those who have strictly observed his commandment to love one another , the basic rule of the order of Saint Patrick .

Freshmen Mistaken [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 11 February 1927
Freshmen Mistaken The Freshmen were misguided when thy were told that their s was to be the first dance held in the gymnasium . The first dance was unofficial as well as informal and impromptu . In fact , only a select few were invited and scarcely a dozen knew it had taken place at all . One day about two months ago there were several men at work on the roof of the newest building . Two of these men hit upon dancing as a good way by which to keep warm . They indulged . The dancing was not accompanied by music , neither were the latest steps executed . Any lack of skill , however , was more than made up for by the abundance of enthusiasm on the part of the onlookers as well as the performers , Needless to say a few of these onlookers were in class at the time and their enthussiasm received a decided check .

Gym Classes Begin If Coach Springston _ s attempts are successful , by the end of this semester we will have sixty-five or seventy muscular , brawny men in the college . In other words , the Physical Education classes for men have begun under G . B . s supervision . According to the coach , the first week has been merely an introduction to his future plans ( ye stiff ones , take notice ) and was used principally for giving instructions . The rest of the semester s activities will consist of four types of work : First , calisthenics ; second , horizontal bar work ; third , parallel bar work , and fourth , games . The course will thus be well-rounded in both interest and benefit .
