AMBITIOUS FROSH QUIZZES ZOO EAGLE [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 November 1927
AMBITIOUS FROSH QUIZZES ZOO EAGLE Faculty To Doff Dignity For Student Entertainment King of Sky Becomes Enraged At Attentions of GreenCapped Student . It was dusk at the zoo . The roaring lions had finished their roaring for the day , and the cross old bears had stopped their grumbling . Even parrot gossip was subdued . Beyond the woods whose trees were all arrayed in autumn modes of brown and yellow , that huge red ball of chilly light , the mid-November sun , was sinking , and long black shadows were invading the zoo . But even when the ground was dark , a brilliant ray of light from the western horizon shone upon the loftiest branch of a tall and leafless tree where an eagle perched silent and majestic—the ruddy sunset light a halo on his venerable , gray head . Hey , you , up there ! said a voice somewhere in vicinity of the eagle cage ; and the majestic bird roused from his meditations and peered down into the shadows . He immediately saw something green , and below the somethi...

Republicans and Democrats Muster Forces For Campaign In Spring NOTED MEN INTERESTED [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 November 1927
Republicans and Democrats Muster Forces For Campaign In Spring NOTED MEN INTERESTED KEEN INTEREST IN MOCK CONVENTIONS Keen interest has been evident among the members of the student body in the prospects of mock Republican . and Democratic National Nominating Conventions , followed by a presidential campaign and election . Since the spring is acclaimed the logical time to hold this function no definite action has yet been taken in forming plans , although the proponents of the plan are gathering ideas . Judging from a recent response in the political science department the Republicans in the college are considerably in the majority . It is hoped that a number of those without a strong party preference will side with the Democrats so that the student body may be divided practically even . No prospects of a third party being formed have been evident so far , although the progressive states such as Wisconsin are well represented in the student body . A number of faculty members have ex...

COLLEGE GIVES THANKS [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 November 1927
COLLEGE GIVES THANKS CHAPEL SERVICES WOMENS ATHLETICS I dreamed of a _College of marble white , Of gleaming halls with a silv ry light That cast a shimmer , like starry beams , Down on the future s castled dreams . I saw that College , Thanksgiving morn , Look on those dreams as day was born , And listening , I heard that College say With grateful heart , as it kneeled to pray , Dear Father , for all I am thankful to Thee , For buildings , for funds , for prosperity ; But far more than these , Thou has given me here A wealth of young life whose course I may steer . To make or to break , is the power I hold , For the future has dreams that I must unfold . 0 , help me inspire , as I mold this life clay , A character stromr . —I earnestly pray . The speech of Dr . Day of Pittsburgh , in chapel recently , was one of the most instructive and inspiring ever heard by the student body . Securing more speakers of this caliber would be a big step in making the much needed improvement in the A...

backers who are present , and who , with their cheering , make their presence very well known . It isnt the fact that those who attend the hockey games do not create much noise , but , rather , that there are so few persons at the hockey games that what noise is made is not worth much in a place the size of the Ellipse . Girls are as human as boys . The fact that they have not been playing hockey as long as the boys have been playing football , is no reason why they should not need encouragement from the student body . The hockey season is over , but other athletic contests will take its place in which the girls will strive to uphold the A . U . athletic honor . The girls are truly pioneering in athletics ! They need a boost and they ve waited long enough for it . Let the College respond and give the A . U . co-eds in the coming athletic seasons the true support they so much deserve .

FATE FROWNS ON A . U . FOOTBALLERS Team Scores Touchdown Early , But Loses To St . Johns BRIDGEWATER WINS After scoring « touchdown in first-rate fashion during the first few minutes of their game with St . Johns College , at * Annapolis , November 5 , the A . U . gridiron representatives were completely overwhelmed by the heavier and better coordinated St . Johns team and the game was lost 36-C , despite the Americans continued and plucky fight . The next game was more disappointing , as American went into the game with Bridgewater College , at Bridgewater , Va ., November 12 . with confidence of victory , engendered by last year s defeat of the same institution by a weakened American team . Bridgewater won by the margin of a dropkick , 7-8 . The game with St . Johns started auspiciously for the Eagles when , receiving the opening kickoff , in a brilliant succession of plays they carried the ball down the field and , without losing the ball , scored on a fake criss-cross by Birthri...
AROUND THE WORLD WITH "WALLY" ~~ [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 November 1927
AROUND THE WORLD WITH WALLY ~~ ( C f . _nitiniic-ti from I age 2 ) Merrily we rolled ( and bumped ) along and everything went kinda peaccful-Hke until we came upon a herd of cows on their way home after a pleasant day among the daisies and dandelions of the verdant pastures of beautiful Virginia . It s funny how you always meet this proverbial herd of cows on their way home on a narrow road that has either deep ditches or strong fences on both sides , and you have to fight your way through . Anyhow , the survivor of the Pour Horsemen who was ushering the , cows home , told us to drive through . Leon suggested that we find the papa cow and gently , but sternly , request him to tell his children to get out of the road . That was a wonderful idea , although most people wouldnt appreciate it . The only detriment was that we ignorant city hicks did not know which was the papa , or adult , cow . So we just had to drive through the mess . When one cow wasnt enjoying a wonderful meal at the...
