HEAVENS ON PARADE AS STUDENTS VISIT NAVAL OBSERVATORY On Friday night . May 7 , Miss Brown conducted a party of eighteen students to the United States Naval Observatory , where they Inspected various stellar specialties Two star clusters , one open and one closed , proved interesting , as did the view of Castor afforded . The climax of the evening came wher the telescope revealed Saturn with its beautiful ring . . The view was so clear that some of the keenereyed students could even distinguish a cloud formation which obscured one edge of the planet . Unfortunately the night was somewhat cloudy and the moon was not included in the program . Most of the students found the mechanical apparatus of the dome is interesting as the views from the telescope , and its operation was certainly more startling . Everyone was amazed and fascinated by the • _a . s- with which the great roof and elescope changed position . As a final courtesy the observatory guide allowed the group to ; o out on th...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 21 May 1926
With the examination week so close at hand it is a time to muster all the optimism available and to offer consolation for the results , whatever they may be . Of this the A students need none , for verily they shall have received their reward ; tut the virtues and accomplishments of that hoard of students under the B line is often , temporally , overlooked . It is a commonly recognized fact ¦ that honor students as a class do not achieve so great success in the wor . d as the good average students . There are a number of explanations or reasons for this fact . In the first place such students too often strive for the grades merely for the grades themselves . Some students learn _casi _ y _. This is a coveted ability , but the student who has to dig hard for his learning gets the habit of digging early in life and thus acquires a mental discipline and a system of study which in the end makes him the better student , and causes him to continue his educaion after his college career .

EDIT 0 RIA 1 [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 21 May 1926
EDIT 0 RIA 1 This is supposed to be an editorial , . _liultfi For yourself . The subject of this editorial is our campus , as this is the most striking thing , visually and olfactorily , about the college . Again , judge for yourself . I may say without fear of successful contradiction that our campus is different from any other that lias heretofore existed . The Hrst point of originality is its unique form of vegetation . The authorities , considering green entirely too common for such an exceptional campus as ours must be , chose bfaek for the main color . This black growth is scattered in a most artistic manner over a background of beautiful yellow . Also , the statuary upon the campus is quite peculiar . Very seldom do you see a campus ornamented , as is ours , with groups of life-like statues of men dressed in _working clothes , some with picks or shovels held idly in their hands and others standing or sitting in restful attitudes . They are to us students an ever-present inspi...

AN OLD MAN TO AN OLD WOMAN . Like to a wind that blows from otf the sea And rustling through the trees , gives soft caress I Unto the failing foliage , 1 eonfesj Your sweet speech and your calm look quiet me . For there is in your voice a lovel ) note That surges sadly like a wave _« J pain And startles sympathy ; and all in vain I strive to seek what wavers iiJ your throat . I And seeking that which I may love I find Affection lingering on your lilting tongue ; And we are old in years , but stil are young , For love recalls the years that lag behind , Receiving an eternal aureole When dayspriiiR dawns within twilight soul .
