MUSICAL CLUB BANQUET [Newspaper Article] — Lincoln News — 1 October 1931
MUSICAL CLUB BANQUET Reminiscing a ‘ bit , _DireCtor Dorsey said , Our first appearance outside of Lincoln University was at the Lyric Theater in Baltimore . We sang before a large gathering of Presbyterians . Senator William E . Borah was in the audience . One interesting phase of our schedule was our trip to the graveyard in which Edgar , Allan Poe was buried ,. We sang there , but I vividly recall how eager the fellows were to leave the graveyard . ( L aughter ) . Director Dorsey then traced the development of the , Club and reiterated some of its disappolntménts , aspiratiOns , triumphs and eventual fame He let it be known that he didn ’t hold in very high regard those fellows who had a penchant for ridiculing members of the organization on the grounds that they did—that is , that people who love and appreciate music , are sof t and effeminate . He spoke of music as an art , in which one expresses the deepest feelings and yearnings of the soul . On Saturday night , October third...
SURVEY $ HOWS UPPERCLASS MEN WANT MIXED FACULTY [Newspaper Article] — Lincoln News — 1 October 1931
SURVEY $ HOWS UPPERCLASS MEN WANT MIXED FACULTY A few years ago’ at Lincoln , Mr . Langston Hughes , aided by other students in the SociOlogy ’ clas s , made a survey , the results ‘ of whi ch were unsually shocking . That survey showed that the upperclassmen were against having Neg roes on the faculty here at Lincoln . The colored press made a lot of to do concerning the matter , and colored public opinion expressed itself in far from ‘ laudatory terms against colored students not wishing to receive instruction from competent members of their own race . Recently , the Lincoln University Trustees voted in favor ’ of ad mitting well-prepared Negroes to professorial chairs here . In keeping _with _theilr resolution they hav ~ given the first chair to a colored man in the person of Mr _, Jo seph Newton Hill who will be in the English Department . A member of the Lincoln News’ staff thought _It would be interesting , by ’ virtue of the trustees’ action and of _Mr . Hill’s appointment , ...

HAZING [Newspaper Article] — Lincoln News — 1 October 1931
HAZING ( WHAT A FRESHM THINKS OF IT ) The pOet Tennyson lightly said , The old order changeth , ‘ giving place ’ to , the new . No one who surveys the ‘ educational situation of the American , _Negro , Youth today would deny that it is rapidly changing . ’ Old , methods , _theoriUs , and . _procrastinations are going by the boa rd ,, giving ‘ plac e to _nOsy ideas and experiments .

TO HAZE OR NOT . TO HAZE ? . [Newspaper Article] — Lincoln News — 1 October 1931
TO HAZE OR NOT . TO HAZE ? . ( WHAT A SOPHOMORE BELIEVES ABOUT IT ) That . is the question , and right now _it seems to _. _be’ a pretty big question . Everyone ’ wil l agree that Lincoln isn’t ‘ the same since the faculty put its foot down on hazing . And when the faculty did that , the vital spark so necessary to a school ’ s spirit , fli ckered and died . It is well known that the hazing of today is no , t like th’e . hazing of Yesterday . Hazing , to be sure , is gradually dying . out , and I can see no _i’eason for , the drastic ‘ steps which the faculty has taken . Unless one hazes the freshman , Li ncol n , situated as , it is , affords little other _entei’tainment It . becom , es necessary , a ~ times to go to extremes ’ when , rabbling on some dog s ,, because of their attitudes , Such , cases are so seldom that , this sudden stopping of all forms of ‘ hazing is nothing short of preposterous . I sincerely hope _that ~ the faculty will suffer a change of mind .,

RENDALL HALL [Newspaper Article] — Lincoln News — 1 October 1931
RENDALL HALL As ‘ a member of the sophomore class , I entitle this theme Rendall Hall because in every respect the in stitution of which I became a part last year has gone through a complete metamorphosis . ‘ Of cour se , some of , the cha nges _1 believe to be ‘ beneficial to the institution , but on the _othem- hand , some of the changes _appeam- to be detrimental .
