We had to stop in Frederick to satisfy a foolish whim of Lees . He thought that just because we were going to go over a lot of mountains we should have our brakes tightened . So , to stop him from crying , we had our brakes fixed . As we rode on , the fog increased and at times stuck on the windshield so that we couldnt see . Not that it made any difference , but Jack was rather nervous , so Lee , at risk of life and limb , got out on the running board while we we...
Student Opinion I i _^^ _SISISISISISISISISSISISISISMISFSMSISM IBRARY CATALOGUING [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 13 January 1928
Student Opinion I i _^^ _SISISISISISISISISSISISISISMISFSMSISM IBRARY CATALOGUING One of the most important departments of any university is the library . American University has a right to be proud of its library , the one very desirable feature being the fact that most of the available books are up-to-date and modern . One or two of the departmental shelves are endowed , thus insuring a permanent inflow of excellent reference works . There are some books , however , which do not depreciate in value because of age . We have hundreds of such books on the shelves in Hurst Hall and not a few in the Battelle Memorial basement . They have laid on the shelves for years—forgotten ; never used . No one knows what tests are available . Indexing of these books is progressing by the library staff , but with the limited number employed in actual index work , it will be months before the work is completed . Meantime students must be denied the use of these books , necessitating frequent expensiv...
AUCOLA SNAPSHOTS [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 13 January 1928
AUCOLA SNAPSHOTS A ship without a rudder , a politician without i platform , or a newspaper without news are , colloquially speaking , sitting pretty in comparison with an Annual without a gofid snapshot section . The staff of the 1928 Aucola has been working conscientiously in order to make this year s Annual an even greater success than that of last year . The business staff has been laboiv ing to sell yearbooks and solicit advertising , those in charge of the pictures have been berating the various groups and individuals into action and have succeeded in having most of these pictures taken . Now it is up to the student body as a whole to contribute to the snapshot section . If everyone who has pictures that are suitable will hand them to Ruth Rinkelthe snapshot editor , this important division of the book will be a success ; and each student will have that much more reason to prize his Aucola .

A . U . DEFEATS G . W IN HARD GAME (( . oMlllllUcl tlnlll I . IKl 1 ) the scon 1 . standing &gt; - » i Kes . _slor rang up throe units , _ineluding A . U . s only score for free throws . After another exchange of baskets , the half ended with American leading , 11-8 . The second period brought another exchange of field goals , followed with a short loop by Jim Birthright , giving the Eagles the long end of a 15-10 count . Up to this juncture the blue and orange five had been obviously playing the superior game , but an improvement of form by the Hatchetites , combined with loose guarding under the basket and over-confidence on the part of the Eagles caused the aspect of things to change . Time after time the G . W . five passed the ball down the floor and with little difficulty dropped it thru the net from a short distance , until , with the game wearing well toward the end , the score stood 19-15 in their favor . When at this point , G . W . began to freeze the ball , A . U...
DEAN & MRS . WOODS OBITUARY GIVE XMAS DINNER ! [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 13 January 1928
DEAN &amp; MRS . WOODS OBITUARY GIVE XMAS DINNER ! All disappointment of a Christmas Day away from home was completely forgotten l &gt; y the out-of-town students who spent their vacation in Washington , for they were all guests of Dean and Mrs . Woods at their third annual A . U . Christmas dinner . Since the guests were those living a distance from Washington , it was a very cosmopolitan group ; the representation by states was as follows : Kansas four , Texas two , Minnesota two , Indiana one , and Florida one . The crowd began to assemble about one o clock , all happy and anticipating a good time , and all with well-preserved appetites — those who had enjoyed a previous Christmas dinner at the Woods home , with a very well-preserved appetite . After all had arrived and succeeded in making themselves at home , the big event of the day was announced —the dinner . While the Dean was busying himself with the task before him—carving the turkey—some statistician sugges...

Ten Debates Now On Schedule-Begin Feb . 3 ( C _lintinned ft ( nil _Iiine 1 ) Sneer ; _und Williams , Lowe , and Ksney . The schedule is of particular interest to those who have followed debate here before . A . U . s first forensic contest was a no-de-cision debate with Carleton College the first year , in which Rice , Speer and Charles McDowell participated , but this time the winner will have to be decided . The squad is more than anxious to meet William and Mary and Western Maryland in the two dual debates in order to uphold last year s reputation in the first case and to return the compliments of defeat to Western Maryland .

It is of special note to know that over half of the squad are Freshmen , so there is plenty of material available lor coming year...
PARLOR PROPHECIE [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 13 January 1928
PARLOR PROPHECIE Editor s Note : This article marks a slight digression from the usual College Types . It comes rather as a satire on the whole group which lingers about the parol each evening pursuing pleasure and , as a result of the quest , obtaining mush . [ ™ L _^ 0 As the old year dies away and a new year comes blithely on the scene various changes will take place and Parlor Diplomacy will become a popular course in our curriculum . The new year , a smiling little cherub , may be entitled Cupid militant , for this is Leap Year . Now or never , say maids in a frame of mind varying all the way from faint hope to positive conceit . Get your man , say the fair sex . Dont shoot , Cupid , until you see the green of their bankrolls . On with the dance , says our sweet young year . The dancer must be a good athlete , rope walker , and mixer to succeed in the new dances . The new year may be chubby , but he has a mean hop , skip and jump which he calls a graceful glide but which looks ...
