STUDENTS GIVEN ONE CHAPEL WEEKLY Faculty-Student Committee To Arrange More Valuable Chapels Next Year LARGE ENROLLMENT SEEN NEXT YEAR The committee of seven students and seven faculty members which met recently to plan a more satisfactory program of chapel services for the coming year made several important provisions for the improvement of these services .

( Resting peacefully among the Stop Signs ) Washingtonians can sit back and laugh at the rest of the United States . No one dares knock the populace of Washington , for if they do , the parties of the first part will come back with the snappy retort , Oh ! Zat so ? And prithee , tell me : Who sends the population to Washington ? When the knocker hears this , he immediately shifts from the subject of Congress to the weather or the ball game . But whatever the knocker talks about , he will not make the Washingtonian forget the clever way peace is kept , in Washington : The two bodies of Congress are given rooms all to themselves up in the Capitol . Here they may play games , tell jokes , or fight , but when they get jut they act just like human beings .

THE HONOR STUDENT [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 4 June 1928
THE HONOR STUDENT STUDENTS GIVEN ONE CHAPEL WEEKLY Honor to whom honor is due , certainly seems to be a slogan of A . U . at this season of the year . Heretofore the motto might well have been Let no man s sins go uncorrected . Now it is different , and as we sit in chapel we see various meek , quiet , unassuming people rise to receive the plaudits of the admiring multitudes . Truly we are a college of heroes and heroines . The Honor Student doesnt always look exactly heroic as he receives his award . Unexpectedly some morning the dean or coach announces the honor and requests the recipient to come forward . How hard he tries to look nonchalent and I COLLEGE TYPES ! take the whole thing as a matter of routine ! He may even essay a slightly bored look to give the impression— after all , it doesnt mean much to me . But his hands betray him to us . Shall he hang them gracefully by his sides ? They feel awfully large there , perhaps Id better fold them across my chest . The poor fellow ...
