TRY-OUTS FOR CIRCUS HELD IN GIRLS' GYM [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 14 April 1927

TRY-OUTS FOR CIRCUS HELD IN GIRLS GYM MARINE BAND PLAYERS TO GIVE CONCERTS A . A . U . W . TEA Marvels of Motion , Strength , Grace , and Skill Shown by Athletic Co-eds . Gayety and good humor _prevailed at the annual exhibition given by the girls physical education classes , under Miss Penningtons direction , in the gymnasium of the Women s Residence Hall , at 8 o clock , _Saturday evening , April 9 . The audience , 8 great many of them drawn by the Deans stirring and pleasure-promis-ing announcement , and others attracted by the call—not of the wild—but of their sweethearts , showed 8 fine appreciative spirit . It laughed almost continually , thus blending nicely with the mood of the performers who evidently failed to comprehend the true gravity of the class antics . The audience was in a good humor to start with , probably because they were delighted that they did not have to venture out into the cold outdoors to plunge down-town to an expensive and comparatively uninteresting mo...

THE CAMPUS BEAUTIFUL [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 14 April 1927

THE CAMPUS BEAUTIFUL A HIGH STUDENT STANDARD school As the glory of a woman is her hair so the glory of every college is its campus . The unfortunate thing is that in many instances it is a departed glory with both . Happily it never needs be so with American University . A splendid site in Americas most beautiful city ; ninty acres of fertile soil ; natural beauty of setting ; buildings that would add to any campus ; —all these , American University has as a nucleus for further campus development . Bemembering the glowing description of American College campuses as given by proud alumni , and the more dignified , but none the less sinceretributes of the Oxford and Cambridge men to the wonderful old trees of their campuses one understands how vital it is that every tree , shrub , and hedge that is to be a part of the future American University camput be planned for so that the resultant whole may be harmonious . A campus is a thing of growth and development . Avenues of trees take g...

I _&fjc _Spectator j _SGOCXXXXXXXXXXXXjs _; XXXXXXWXXXXKW Collegiate Romanticism Although the modern college is primarily an institution for the development of the intellect , college life has an emotional side which is the modern expression of that same romantic nature which has been portrayed by Sir Walter Scott and the many , other writers of his school . Human nature has not changed since the time of Scott s novels and that inborn delight in the fantastic still persists although it finds expression through more modern channels . Except for the study of romantic literature , the class room contributes but little to the romantic spirit ; it is to be found in the associations and environment of the campus . Literature is divided into two general divisions , classical and romantic ; the human mind is thought of as governing both the intellect and the emotions ; and this same general dividing line is found in a college _between the _curriculum and the outside activities ,...

THE SPIRIT OF MATERIALISM [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 14 April 1927

THE SPIRIT OF MATERIALISM Editor s aoIc : This article on materialism ••; a cmidencriJ form of an English theme , wiitten by _Rnjnutnd Spaeth , of _Saiina . Kansas , for Or . Corlnn _s freshmen English secton . It has been said that a college freshman has no business writing upon such a subject as materialism . But , why not ? True , it is an immense subject , but even in this age of . so-called pleasure , a college student can think—and does . Nor is it always limited to thoughts of love , or the ball game of tomorrow . In fact , the way which some would-be reformers are deploring this grand old world , and the spirit which has enabled it to become so great , opens an immense field of thought to almost all college students . Whither is this world drifting ? Evidently our civilization is doomed to fall . For the leaders of the present generation are hurling the threat of destruction on the coming generation from every angle . Although each of these individuals thinks he sees the tro...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 14 April 1927

Today , rn the choice of vocation ! and professions , material wants art urged to be forgotten and instead the idea of service is paramount Because of this amplified antimaterialistic feeling , the college student , who has determined to entei the business world , finds himself in about the same situation as the young man who said that he was going to become an artist in the colonial period when only materialistic views of life were taken . Immediately , the youth of today is classed as being out for money , just as the youth of yesterday was chided for not having a materialistic purpose . But , even Pinar in Grecian times bemoaned the materialistic impulses of his day . Nevertheless , the world kept right on working , and as a result kept right on progressing . Evidently , in spite of the noise one hears about materialism today , it is necessary , and because _> f this , the college student feels justified in preparing himself for the practical issues ot lite , that he m...

THE SPIRIT OF MATERIALISM DEBATERS APPRECIATE A . U . HOSPITALITY ( Continued from Pago 2 Col . 4 ) the life of the body , man can turn his thoughts to other channels and then culture results . Consider the tropical natives . They have nevei bothered themselves with materialistic pursuits other than their immediate necessities and today they are living under the same conditions that they did centuries ago with nc thought of the higher ideals or culture of life . So , materialism is essential to progress in that the base of this progress is founded on the supplying of mans material wants . The great trouble is , the world is told , that man does not permit the other things in life to keep up with his material desires . Yet , materialism is at its greatest height today , and the intellectual , physical , and spiritual sides of life were never more predominant than they are now . When the admission , that materialism is necessary , is made the modern critic plays his trump card . Grant...

A . U . GIRLS PAGE Pretty Co-eds Assist At A . A . U . W . Convention Held In Mayflower LIBRARY OF CONGRESS VISITED BY CLASS The staff of the Mayflower Hotel was very efficiently increased on March 31 during the convention of the American Asociation of University Women , when fifteen girls of the American University acted as pages . This being the first day of the convention , the girls were called upon for very active and often unique services . Among these duties might be listed carrying messages , delivering mail , distributing folders , directing strangers , and , of course adding a decorative touch . Working in as pleasant environment as that of the Mayflower naturally would be very interesting , but it was made even more so by the personal contact with such women as Dr . Reinhart , the president of the association , and more than 500 other educators who attended .
