ENLARGED AUCOLA IS PROGRESSING WELL Much progress has been made on the 1928 Aucola during the last few weeks . A pioneer theme has been chosen and will appear first on the cover and be carried out all the way through the book . This theme is particularly fitting to this year s Annual because the Class of . 29 is the first class to graduate which haa spent the entire four years here—the true pioneers . • The opening section has been considerably changed from last year s style and is quite original and unique in itself .

A MEN'S DORMITORY [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 9 February 1928

A MENS DORMITORY DRAMATICS AT A . U TAPS FOR THE COUNCIL ? A petition asking for the erection of a men s dormitory as soon as possible was signed by a large number of the men of the college and has been presented to the administration . Doubtless , there has been some question in the minds of the administration as to the financing of such a building and also as to its advisability . The present rooming arrangements for the men can hardly be called satisfactory . Rooming away from the campus deprives the men of dormitory life ; discomforts of daily travel back and forth have to be endured ; and furthermore the rooms may or may not be well heated , well lighted , and inexpensive . The lack of a men s dormitory is a vital factor in keeping away possible men students . How many times have solicitors interested prospective students in the college only to have them suddenly irrevocably change their attitude upon learning that the college has no mens dormitory ? Yet the women are favored w...

Around The World With _"Wally " [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 9 February 1928

Around The World With _Wally Sparta , Wisconsin . (\ S parta this great , prosperous , country of ours . ) Way back in the dim and distant past , long before Prohibition , anc years before Ford put out his twelve millionth gas buggy , there was a little hick town in Greece , called Sparta . This village was famous for sharp wimmin ; strong , _bravt men ; big track meets ; red-hot free-for-alls ; and many other things . But the only really outstanding claim to immortality the name of Sparta has is the fact that it handed its name down to the great metropolis in Wisconsin , also called Sparta . Now Sparta , Greece , had its Spartan Phalanxes , but in contests with the Theban Column they lost , according to Lynn W . Thorndike and Professor Dudley . In Sparta , Wisconsin , however , there is quite a different story . In place of the Phalanxes , we have the Bearcats—the famous , undefeated Bearcats—the rip-roaringest baseball team in [ pswitch County . For opponents they had no Theban Co...

A COLLEGIAN'S WORTH [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 9 February 1928

A COLLEGIANS WORTH I Student Opinion DAILY CHAPEL SPEAKERS During the last semester it was the pleasure of A . U . students _^ o listen to many talks by professors , ministers , congressmen , and others ; some talks , however , it will be generally agreed , were far more interesting and beneficial than others , Located in the nation s capital , accessible to the most prominent speakers of the country , there seems to be no legitimate reason why more of them should not be invited to address the daily convocation . Students come to American University for several reasons , one of the most important being its location in Washington . Few colleges in the country have the splendid source of supply that American has . A little more planning and general foresight will make our chapel services worthwhile , and anticipated with pleasure , rather than with the question , Who is to bore us today ? An institution located hundreds of miles away from all national contacts can be excused . America...

BLUE RIDGE DEFEATED IN CLOSE CONTEST [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 9 February 1928

BLUE RIDGE DEFEATED IN CLOSE CONTEST ( Continued from Page 3 ) Eagles from being defeated by an inferior team . The game began with A . U . monopolizing the scoring . The score soon stood 8-0 , Hayward contributing four of the points by a pair of accurate flips from beneath the basket . Although the Mountaineers then took their turn at scoring and revised the count to 8-7 , the spurt proved to be temporary , and the Eagles soon widened the margin . American went into the second half of the game with a 15-9 advantage . But this lead was not long maintained , as Blue Ridge began a successful attack which slowly netted them six points to a lone field goal by American . The scoring then continued for a while point for point . With the count 20 to 18 , Blue Ridge held the Eagles for several minutes scoreless , meanwhile dropping two baskets of their own and gaining the lead for the first time . It was then , with six minutes to play , that the Blue and Orange tossers began to function pr...
