VIEWED BY A - VAGABOND COLUMNIST _D’jevem’ stop to think of the many opportun . ities awaiting the young ‘ men who really breaks into print ? All the pretzel adds to endorse , all the personal appearances to make , and all the other such ways of gathering the filthy lucre ? Believe you me , It’s food for thought ! ‘ Way back in the Gay Nineties B . P . ( BefOre Prohibition ) one Horace Greeley or some other chappie , advised all -young men to go west . Of course I think Horace was _press-agenting for some Western land d ’ eveiopment Co ., or else trying to build up trade on the Delaware , Lackwanna and Western , sort of on the Q _. T .

EDITORIALS [Newspaper Article] — Lincoln News — 1 November 1931
EDITORIALS THIS BUSINESS OF FRATS _Withm their usual , excessive beating of thighs and back-sides , the fraternities here at Lincoln have admitted ‘ the new Brothers . After having withstood the horse-play throughout virtually a whole night , the neophytes , as usual , ‘ have told the glorious fib , I’d go through it again for dear _01 ’ Lambda Chi . In the first place , we think the frats are ridiculous in their attempts to instil that fraternal feeling into the neophytes . It seems to be ’ a Herculean task for a man , who has been cowhided through the black hours of night , to come through ft all , having any great amount of brotherly attitude toward those who ’ ve jus t beat him . Anyhow , custom is . a nasty thing sometimea . Having been beat into brotherhood , the new brothers have a greater thing to overcome . They must now overcome fraternal narrowmindedness .

BUILD YOUR OWN LIBRARY [Newspaper Article] — Lincoln News — 1 November 1931
BUILD YOUR OWN LIBRARY If yo u buy books , keep them . Don ’t throw them away . In the first place , books are expensive , but more importan t stiii , book s are valuable as an asset to one ’ s culture . Things are seldom learned from a book in one reading . One must read a book over and Over if one is to learn something from it . , some books are not w rth keeping . There are many text-boo ks that fail into this class . Sometimes books grow old ‘ and out-of-date , Sometimes the authors are wm’ong to begin with and die befoi ’ e they change or revise their books .

" OPPORTUNITY " [Newspaper Article] — Lincoln News — 1 November 1931
OPPORTUNITY How shall I live ? How can I help others and promote the welfare of my race ? How can I become a man and do a man ’ s work ? These are questions that we should ask ourselves . One ’ s primary consideration should be not how one shall get a _hivilng , but how he sh ah live , for if on e lives ’ rightfully , whatever is needful he shall fi n d , life is opportunity and if bent or self-im-proved one would make lmimself capable of doing the seemingly impossible , Opportunity is an excellent word like others derived from the Romans .
