EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 April 1926
EDITORIAL ( Note : The editor writes in the first person singular on a subject which has aroused much feeling , since he wishes to express his own personal opinion without involving some twenty other members of the staff in a question upon which they doubtless oppose him . ) I have watched with great interest the battle which is being waged between two conflicting factions on the question of whose responsibility it is to condition the tennis courts for play . Practically the entire college is interested in the outcome since both men and women will be benefited by their repair . The majority claims that it is up to the college authorities to pay for fixing the courts ; tho minority—and an exceedingly small minority it is—says that in view of the little amount of work each student would do , the courts should be repaired by the students . Let us examine both sides of the question . On the one hand we have those who argue for the repairing of the courts by the college . Their chief arg...
ANOTHER LETTER [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 April 1926
ANOTHER LETTER We offer herewith one of those blights of every editor s life which the Socialist papers classify under the general heading of Vox Populi . We refuse to be so rash as to attempt a classification ; it is only fair to state , however , that this is one o fthose Well-what-are-you-going-to-do-about-H ? affairs . So , gentle reader , if you do not wish to be stirred from your beatific state of mental lassitude , we say unto you , in the words of the Boyg in Peer Gynl , Go round aboutl Dear Editor : It was after dinner on a week day evening . After dinner is enough to make anyone like myself unhappy , that is , in state of body . Then , too , the day had contained several unpleasant episodes which had left their marks on my suffering spirit . I was looking forward with pleasure to dancing away all my cares and troubles . I heard , however , no music , and after a little hopeful investigation , I discovered that the piano-players had escaped downtown for the evening . It was...

LENTEN SERVICES HELI [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 April 1926
LENTEN SERVICES HELI Unusual Chapel Services Prove Interesting The special Lenten services planned for the chapel periods before Easter were all interesting . The men who spoke to the students at that time are all eminent ministers of prominent Washington churches , and each gave an address spirit-filled with a vital message for the upbuilding of student life . These speakers included Dr . W . S . Abernethy , of Calvary Baptist Church ; Rev . George Farnum , of Cleveland Park Congregational Church ; Canon Stokes , of the Washington Cathedral , and Dr . F . B . Harris , of Foundry Methodist Church . The interest evinced in these messages warrants asking other representatives of various churches to speak at chapel ; for as Mr . Hutchins pointed out in his Lenten talk , this season of devotion and worship should continue throughout the year . Since chapel attendance is compulsory , the students feel they may demand something worthwhile , and the professors realize that they owe them th...

The building is an exact replica of an old castle in Scotland . It is located on a knoll of Bolivar Heights , overlooking the Shenandoah Valley , and commands a view of four states and the District of Columbia . Dr . James compared the surrounding mountain ranges with a vast chalice , at the bottom of which sparkled the river . The interior of the castle is decorated with expensive paneling , and contains all the equipment necessary for domestic and extensive social life . The stud . nts played music and danced wirr in its great halls , all of which Mr Rose , the caretaker , had courte ¬ ously thrown open to them . The old gent...
