THE VISION FOR A . U t MISINTERPRETED DEDICATION ew of the ritual of dedication for the Battelle Memorial To look across the campus at the magnificent pillars of Hurst Hall , is to admire the vision and foresight of Bishop Hurst and others back in 1898 . Words to this effect were spoken recently by an A . U . professor , as he sat at his desk in the new Battelle Memorial and looked across the campus to the Hufst building . Each student at American University has probably , at sometime , felt such a sentiment as was expressed by this member of the faculty . Bishop Hurst and his tireless colleagues had a vision of a _jrreat educational project . True to their vision they began the work of building a University . But these founders realized that they must bring foresight to the task . The University was not to be built for just one day , but for many a day . Its influence was not to be for the present only , but for the future also . Thus they worked accordingly . The students of Ameri...

_Z \) t _spectator J Collegiates and Co-eds The principal characteristic which the youth of today have in common with the youth of preceding generations is that progressive and unconventional spirit which arouses the pessimism and criticism of the old folks . In general modern youth appears to be far different from the preceding generation , and probably there is a wider gap between the last two generations than any others because of the accelerated advance of the modern world . The leaders of the modern youth movement and subsequently the direct recipients of the paternal lampooning are the college students . They are the ones who are most often accused of causing the failure of the Eighteenth Amendment and destroying the established social codes . These charges , however , are often made either by those who behaved much in the same fashion when they were young , *» pd there ¬ fore have a greater aptitude for noticing the evil , or by those of the old maid type who still seek to sa...

SERENADERS VISIT DR . KINSMAN Students Find New Sunday Evening Diversion Drink to me only with thine eyes ( quite lustily ) And I will drink with mine , Or leave a kiss within the cup ( gradually fading ) Dee-dee-dee-dee-de-e-e- ( suddenly peters out ) The moon laughed at this apology for a Sunday evening serenade , but Or . Kinsman didnt . He nodded encouragingly from his study window . We took heart and advanced—eight strong—to the front door where Mrs . Kinsman waited to receive us . This little act of hospitality served one purpose if no other , and that was to keep us from disturbing the peace of the neighborhood . Mrs . Kinsman seemed quite relieved to find that Miss Brown was with us . It had been our noble purpose to tour Wesley Heights and to entertain its residents with renditions of sweet melody , but minstrelsy , we are now convinced , is not one of our accomplishments . Dr . Kinsman informed us that Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes is his favorite song . This , by the w...
