COLLEGE LOYALTY [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 16 December 1927
COLLEGE LOYALTY CHANGE THE GOSLING COURT ? When a student from some other college transfers to American University , it is only natural for him to remember his former college with pride and pleasure . This is also true of Freshmen entering from a preparatory school . Such students naturally hold their previous school in very high esteem and they should do so out of gratitude to the institution which has served them . If such a gratitude has not been developed , the new student is very poor material out of which to make a worthy A . U . man or woman , one other American University men and women are proud to acknowledge as a product of their alma mater s influence and training . Affections for other schools and colleges are , however , rough too highly emphasized . Such attitudes make college unity an impossibility—that unity of spirit and purpose so necessary to the successful college . The question is one of proportion . Nc student is asked to forget his previous school , as that is...

_|; _£ f ) c _Spectator • iG _^ _WOOOWJOOOOOOOOfliGiGOOOOG _* Aims of College Athletics At the annual football banquet at A . U , on Monday evening , Dean Woods named three characteristics that made a successful football team : playing its best , playing a clean and moral game , and playing with a loyal feeling of supporting the University . Winning games is a secondary matter . It is commonly recognized that intercollegiate athletics today are run on a commercialized , and essentially a professionalized basis which defeats the ends for which they should exist . Winning games is the one aim of most athletic teams in the country today , and almost any means are justified by the universities in gaining a championship record . Athletes with poor moral and scholastic standing are essentially hired in one way or another , and profesisonal coaches are aften paid far more than any member of the faculty or administrative board . Intercollegiate athletics as a means of physical education amo...
Around The World With "Wally " [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 16 December 1927
Around The World With Wally Student Opinion NEW JERSEY ( A yood example of what this worlds coming to . ) New Jersey is a wonderful place to go for an automobile tour if you want inspiration . Everyone in the State is so hospitable that most of the populace keep hot-dog stands on the side of the main highways so as to keep the poor hungry motorists from starving to death . ( Or maybe it s to get those few who survive automobile accidents ; I wouldnt argue for the world . ) I had a little experience with this New Jersey hospitality : Last summer I had the privilege of riding over the N . J . highways . The roads were so nice that I just couldnt resist stepping on it . I was going rather fast when I noticed that there was a playful minion of the Law ( dont get scared —that only means a cop ) on a motorcycle behind me , and he looked as if he wanted to race . Now I m not the kind who would turn down a little fun , so I raced with him , Finally he got tired , so he drew alongside of me ...

A . U . SPIRIT DURING CHRISTMAS [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 16 December 1927
A . U . SPIRIT DURING CHRISTMAS During vacation every student should mingle his most enthusiastic college spirit with an overflowing Christmas spirit and consider himself an ambassador of A . U . Christmas is a time when students are mixing with friends and , are given many opportunities to answer questions about their college . The answers given and the attitude shown will give many strong impressions of A . U . The best advertisement for a university is her students—and rightly so . A university is not only judged by the success of her alumni but also by the attitude of her students during their college days . Every A . U . student now has a definite impression of his university ; many will have opportunity to express that impression to the outside world for the first time . Freshmen especially who will be meeting thir old high school friends should make special effort to influence the best students ( and only the best ) of their acquaintance to consider coming to A .

high school papers . This willingness to cooperate , it seems , should _bt capitalized . Other colleges with which tht writer is familiar have found tha &lt; one college year book attracts a great deal of attention and interest from high school students , so that in May or June of each year , one copy is sent to the larger high school libraries . The pictures of the various college organizations , campue views , faculty photographs , are attractive and often lead to a student s request for further information from the college offices . Whatever method is chosen is relatively unimportant . What IS important is that American University should increase its enrollment one hundred per cent next year ! The facilities are here—the need ii for a larger student body , and that can only be secured by a definite effort exerted by the adminittration to _advertise American _Univertity .

FROSH AND SOPHS MIX ON FRESHMAN DAY Freshmen Fail in Attempt To Evade Sophomores [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 16 December 1927
FROSH AND SOPHS MIX ON FRESHMAN DAY Freshmen Fail in Attempt To Evade Sophomores SPRINGSTON S MEN START PRACTICE Where there s smoke , there s fire . The campus fairly bustled the Wednesday befora Thanksgiving—bags were packed ; autos swung to the curb in front of the dorm steps ; busses going downtown were crowded;—and a thin ribbon of smoke lazily drifted across the quadrangle from a point somewhere between Hurst Hall and the Battelle Memorial . Groups of _upperclassmen whispered together a moment , then hurried away , smiling superior upperclassmen smiles . A few Frosh peeped daringly from the fastness of far corners ; and the glorious green emblem of their class crinkled slowly into yellow ashes under the heated ire of the Sophs . It had all happened this way : — For several weeks the Sophs had been planning a party for the youngsters of 31 . An entertaining and instructive program had been carefully prepared . Invitations had been posted all about the campus , and everything wa...

X-mas Vespers Held [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 16 December 1927
X-mas Vespers Held AROUND THE WORLD WITH WALLY After the regular Sunday night tea last Sunday , the annual Christmas vesper service was held . The program was interesting and unique . Some of the special features were the reading of The Other Wise Man , by Mr . Houston , and a number by the male quartet of the College . There were many visitors who joined heartily into the spirit of the occasion , and assisted in making the evening a success . ( Continued from Page 2 ) told him that I thought that the roads were good enough and that it would just be a waste of my money to contribute . He differed with me , and told me that I really should stay a week or two ( he offered to pay all my expenses—kind soul !) and get the low-down—the inside dope on the real condition of the roads . He promised me first-hand contact with the situation . But I told him that I had to be on my way to New York and was very sorry I couldnt accept his hospitality . I told him also that I noticed there was a ra...
