NEED OF A COLLEGE SONG AND YELLS [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 5 October 1927
NEED OF A COLLEGE SONG AND YELLS The thrill and spirit aroused by the song of ones alma mater is felt by every red blooded student during his college days and is revived at every occasion it is heard by him as an alumnus . Like a national anthem a college song gives expression to an arousing spirit that is not so evidenced in any other way . As yet A . U . has no college song and but few good yells . She needs them both . The lack of them is keenly felt at every Athletic contest and at many other college functions . Some student has the opportunity of writing a song and winning the five dollar prize offered and the honor of being the author of A . U . _ s college song . The same opportunity is igMli far new college yells . .

This is not a word from the wise , but a word to the wise , relative to freshman best _beginnings . Drop a pebble in the water and in a splash it is gone ; But there are half a hundred ripples circling on and on . Therefore , the admonition : Avoid deep water and locate the right puddle .

VACATIONS SPENT IN MANY WAYS Students Have Variety of Experiences During the Summer [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 5 October 1927
VACATIONS SPENT IN MANY WAYS Students Have Variety of Experiences During the Summer Outward appearances would indicate that American University boys did a large portion of the nation s work this past summer . Ab their employers can not be interviewed , it must conclude that everyone performed extremely valuable services . A number of students spent the summer at Eagles Mere . Art Gerth and Cal Delaplane worked there in various resorts . Later in the summer they were joined by Hugh Speer , who had previous to that time been _inspectin spuds on the Eastern Shore in behalf of the government . It is certainly needless to say that all three often deserted their tasks to visit certain of our fair coeds in Eagles Mere , Laura Everett and Sally Roher . Roland Parish , Bill Warner , Marion Cross , and Dave Morgan worked on farms . All except Flaming remained near home . Flaming was near Westminster , Indiana . Courtney Heyward attended summer school at the University of Delaware . Inspired b...

A . U . LOSES TO STUDENT BODY GETTYSBURG NUMBERS 180 ( Ciintinut il li in I . il i I , I I 1 ) George _Washington at Potomac Park , Because of several new additions to the squad , the constant practice of both old and new plays , and the scrimmages of last week , the team will be in much better Bhape for this contest , and the outcome of this game is much more doubtful than those at G . W . real ¬ ize . The contest at Gettysburg began very disastrously for the Washington _eleven . American University came out upon the short end of several exchanges of punts , necessitated by the tight defense of both teams , and was forced to boot the pigskin from behind her own goal line . The kick was blocked and the Pennsylvanians scored their first touchdown . They failed in the attempt for point after touchdown , as was the case after every other touchdown in the game with the exception of the second , when the point was awarded Gettysburg as a result of an offside by A .

MANY IMPROVEMENTS MADE ON CAMPUS [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 5 October 1927
MANY IMPROVEMENTS MADE ON CAMPUS ( Continued from Page 1 , Col 2 . ) lend a bit of privacy to that office , but will also tend to remind the students of a bar of judgment when the grades are due . In the basement , the room formerly used as the chemistry lecture room , has been equipped as a chemistry laboratory with about $ 2 , 000 worth of new apparatus . One of the most evident changes made on the campus , to which Mr . Prye and his helpers have given a major part of their attention , is the new driveway to the Chancellor s home . Although still in good condition the former macadam road has been abandoned and a new drive built in order to form an artistic figure eight between the Chancellor s home and the corner of Massachusetts and Nebraska avenues . Those students driving cars to the campus appreciate the resurfacing of Tunlaw Road to the McKinley Building The men living in the basement of the gymnasium this year will profit by the new lights placed at the north entrance of the...

FRESHMEN UNDER THE MICROSCOPE [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 5 October 1927
FRESHMEN UNDER THE MICROSCOPE Interesting Specimens Noted On A . U . Campus Page Mr . Varrelman—quick ! A new biological species recently invaded the campus of American University—and its nature is puzzling the whole student body . Is it plant or animal life ? It might be animal , for it moves hither and thither about the campus with a somewhat lingering awkwardness ; but still its color declares its intimate relationship to the plant kingdom . Let us observe more closely : First : It is green . And , Oh , so green ! The only break in its solid greenness is the tiny yellow bud which adorns the peak of every specimen . But , men , that green 1 Second : In spite of its own greenness it does not seem to flourish on the green lawns about the campus . In fact , with few exceptions , it plainly avoids the grass . Perhaps a bit of grass-stain would impair its health . ( For further information along this line apply to the Goslin Court . ) Third : It invades the chapel and class rooms , and...
