STUDENTS TO HONORDADS Three Talks by Students Will Be Given Dads in Afternoon Meeting DINNER FOR FATHERS CHANCELLOR DELIVERS CONVOCATION ADDRESS The second annual Dads Day celebration of the College of Liberal Arts will be held on Sunday , October 16 th . This is the day of the year when the students will try to show in a more particular way their appreciation of what their fathers have meant to them .

1 _® _fje _Spectator is apt to be accompanied by doubt and worry as to its outcome . These uncomfortable feelings caused by the growth of the individual have very properly been termed as growing pains , but they need not be taken as cause for alarm ; they should be considered as evidence of growth . What A . U . Meant to One . To return to the statement of our loyal alumnus , the question naturally arises , What is it at A . U . which causes peculiar changes in the individual that are different and better than those produced by any other college ?

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 5 October 1927
Around The World With Wally GETTYSBURG . ( Where there are more people dead than alive . ) Gettysburg College probably resented its defeat by American University in basketball last year , for they invited the American University football team up for a nice friendly game of football . So the American U . team piled into its fleet of Rolls Royces and Cadillacs , and was away to Gettysburg . Strange as it may seem , we arrived at Gettysburg without any major mishaps , barring , perhaps , the incident when Coach Springston ran over a poor , innocent little chicken . Then came up that question , Why does a chicken cross the road ? We arrived at Gettysburg and went right to bed in the palatial Gettysburg Hotel . About 12 : 35 a loud knock was heard at our door , and a gruff voice commanded us to get out of bed and go downstairs for lunch . The boys jumped right out ot bed , for when Manager S . N . Gray beckons them in his tone of finality , they know better than to refuse . The team has ...
WELCOME TO FRESHMEN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 5 October 1927
WELCOME TO FRESHMEN ; : Some one has said , Take life as you find it , but don t leave It so . Many persons have answered that challenge , and thus lave left memories of great deeds that have made the world better . Other persons have refused to recognize the challenge , and have died unknown , and without the satisfaction of having made life happier . Frederic Handel took life as it came to him , but he didnt leave it that way . The music in his soul expanded into great compositions , and majestic oratorios . He inspired mankind to higher thoughts and greater works through his artistry in music . Abraham Lincoln did not leave life as he had found it . He permitted his great thoughts to express themselves in actions that made life happier and better . Lincoln left the world a memory of noble thoughts and deeds , for he had met and answered the challenge of life . Thus the challenge has passed on through the years , and each individual has either answered or failed to answer it . The...

SCHOLASTIC STANDARDS The present enrollment in the college is forty per cent greater than that of last year at this date . There are two ways by which the enrollment of an educational institution may be increased . One is to admit every applicant who desires to enter , and who presents the proper high-school credentials . The other is to admit only those from high school or from other colleges who have a previous record high enough to prove their ability to meet the requirements of a first-grade college curriculum , so that they will become a credit to the institution .
