GOSLING COURT ACTIVE Incorrigible Frosh Continue To Decorate Campus [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 November 1927
GOSLING COURT ACTIVE Incorrigible Frosh Continue To Decorate Campus FRENCH DRAMA CLASS PRESENTS PLAY It would seem that the age-old adage that a burned childfears the fire has at last been disproven . At any rate it would be if it read the punished Freshman fears the Court . For , in spite of the ridiculous appearance of the humbled Frosh , they always come back for more . The upshot is , of course , the Goslin Court has had another session and the campus has another generous sprinkling , of fantastic specimens . For instance , white summer clothing may not be just the style for November , but the ardor of the unfortunate wearer may be cooled . And science , too , should benefit from these phenomena . There are creatures which move about in a distinctly crab-like manner . Do these not show the direct descent of man ( or more likely woman ) from the amphibious animals ? Such reverse motions as seen about the campus must have some scientific value . Strange outgrowths of newspapers an...

FROSH FORM QUINTET Tilt With Calvary Reds ; Kessler Is Coach [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 November 1927
FROSH FORM QUINTET Tilt With Calvary Reds ; Kessler Is Coach A gigantic classic in basketball was staged in the Mens Gymnasium on Friday evening , November 18 , when the Freshman aspirants for positions on the class basketball team met the celebrated Calvary Reds in a thrilling encounter for practice scrimmage . Since no team had been chosen yet , a tentative team was first sent on the floor ; and then substitutions were made throughout the game in order to give all the candidates an opportunity to experience a game and to develop their ability . At no time was the team composed entirely of a selection of men who had ever previously played as a unit . It is felt , therefore , that the score ot 30-12 in favor of the Reds is , in fact , to be considered a very good showing . Carlisle Christie helped the boys out as coach , while Seeley Gray refereed in true A . U . style . The Freshman Team is under the direction of Coach Kessler , who is going to give the boys intensive drill after t...

THE SOCIAL LION [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 23 November 1927
THE SOCIAL LION I COLLEGE TYPES j MRS . HALL GUEST SOPHS HOLD DANCE The Social Lion , otherwise known as sheik , wisecracker , or lady killer , condescends occasionally to favor us with his company . He swoops down upon the lucky members of the sex popularly known as fair in his fiery chariot , which may be anything from a decrepit flivver to a dazzling Cadillac . Any little tricks which the aforesaid chariot possesses are shown off to the admiring multitudes of open-mouthed , amazed hopefuls;—hopefuls hoping for a ride . The chariot swirls down in a cloud of dust and smoking brakes , The muffler fails to muffle with a resulting series of loud snorts , pops , and bangs from Pegasus . Presently the unmanageable chariot is brought to a halt by our great big hero and the rush begins . At length one of the hopefuls is chosen by lot . Extricating her with difficulty from the clamors of the disappointed , the hero tucks her under his wing and clatters away . A great wind of sighs results ...

AMBITIOUS FROSH QUIZZES ZOO EAGLE ( Continued from Page 1 ) What ! What s that ? Are you really talking ? Gosh ! I never heard the biology prof say that birds could . . • I asked you what you wanted , croaked the feathered dignitary in a tone most authoritative and also misanthropical . I—much—just tell me—wasn t there somebody here—who wanted to draw—your picture ? Indeed ! vehemently vociferated the eagle . There were two pests here , and from their almost unintelligible remarks I gathered that they represented the Art Department of the American University , and that they wanted to draw a picture of me , or of my eye ( they were not over perspicuous on that point ) , saying that the sketch would appear in their college paper—some ridiculous , pseudo-journalistic contraption , I presume . And , as I further interpreted their remarks , I ascer ¬ tained that one of the artists was identified as Professoi Hutchins . He it was who caused me the most displeasure , for he forever stalked...
