A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 21 March 1928

A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM The Freshman turned restlessly on his pillow . It was Friday _night and he had had xuch a week ! Threi of his profs had sprung class exams on him during the week , and—well he hadn t done so well . Oh , if he had only answered that twentythird question , he knew it just as well as ... But he had one consolation—spring had come and there were only a few weeks more before he would be going home . What a pleasant thought that was ! He rolled over once more , this time smiling inwardly . Home . Yes ,, there he was . . . His family were sitting down to a supper of all the things his mother knew he liked best . My , how good everything tasted ! After the third ( or was it the fourth ?) helping , the Freshman tipped easily back in his chair . His father asked him a question . He began to tell of all the marvelous things he had learned at college—or rather to lightly sketch ovei some of the knowledge that he thought his folks would understand . On and on he talked ,...

Student Opinion [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 21 March 1928

Student Opinion _^ _laiaiaisMBiaMasiaiariMaiajaHD ijaMajaio The name of the institution which we attend seems a particularly unfortunate one in the mind of the present writer . While it signifies s truly patriotic ideal , yet there if good reason to ask—does not the name American suggest a genera ! class of universities—those located in America ? This fact was impressed on my mh d several days ago when a pamphlet entitled American University Athletes was posted on a bulletin board . I immediately presumed it had reference to Coach Springston s heroes . To my surprise , it contained a resume of athletics in general . If this institution could be named after its founder or most outstanding supporter or donor , it is certain that the university would attain a more rapid recognition . Its literature and general publicity material would catch the eye . There would be something intensely personal and unique about our college . When a newspaper mentions Temple University , Beloit College ,...

VARSITY TAKES GAME FROM PROFS Name of Game Uncertain But a Ball Seemed the Center of Interest The faculty joined hands with the student body Tuesday night , February 28 , when football joined hands with basketball in a game in the gymnasium . The faculty won 28-27 . The majority of those prbsent think the varsity won 27-23 , but they are not aware of the faculty s great rally which started when , by a neat piece of strategy (?) , the lights were turned off in the middle of the third quarter . During this rally Professor Neprud caged a spectacular long shot and Coach Springston made good one of his famous , old-guard-style , leaping attempts . Doc Holton then won the game when he dropped in a free toss which very few people could appreciate on account of the extreme darkness . While the game is being considered before the National Board of Referees , the American Amateur Union , and the League of Nations to determine the winner , we must give the Varsity the benefit of the doubt , an...
