EXAGGERATOR SATIRED Dkarkst Dan : I m having a perfectly wonderful time at college , but I am absolutely studying my head off for the exams , which are simply fearful . I haven t a red cent left , so please send a check right away Thus might read a letter from one whom we have with us always—the Exaggerator . She ( or occasionally he ) thinks constantly in the superlative . Every movie is the best she ever saw ; every hat is the most adorable ever made . If she has one less dress than her friend she simply hasn t a rag to wear . She is always thrilled to death , bored to tears , or perfectly furious . Sometimes the Exaggerator is a very pleasant person to have around . It is quite flattering to be told that our conversation is simply fascinating , that our waltzing is divine , and that our clothes are gorgeous . But a revelation comes when we hear our erstwhile admirer discourse upon the merits of absent friends . One is perfectly puerile another positively poisonous , ghastly neckt...

By Eric Friedheim In Chicago last Saturday 122 , 000 people watched Notre Dame defeat Navy by a short pass over the goal line . A heartbreaking game to lose , is the opinion of the average football follower . That same day at Annapolis St . John s College overwhelmed American U . 63-0 , before a small crowd of 750 . Without doubt the football match at Chicago was ten times more interesting than the one in Maryland , but that huge , vast audience at Soldiers Field really missed something . They did not witness the display of OUTS that the 750 were treated to . I LOOKING THE I CAMPUS OVER Playing far out of their own class , a handful of inexperienced men with comparatively no reserve strength , still bearing the scars of two earlier defeats , waded in and fought a battle in which they never had a chance to emerge victoriously . The closing moments of play saw the Orange and Blue without material strength to carry on , yet it was OUTS that kept bruised and exhausted bodies hammering a...

Faithful Servant * The great majority of students come to A . U ., we hope , to be better able to serve their fellowmen in the future . But the sincerity of this ideal may be fairly accurately judged by the activity of students in carrying out this ideal while yet in college . Two groups of students who are especially showing this sincerity are brought in mind by recent events . The Vespers Committee , which presented the pageant The Challenge of the Cross before the student body last Sunday evening at the cost of much arduous preparation and probably , in some instances , personal embarrassment , and which has labored faithfully for the past four years to bring to the students the most valuable religious atmosphere and appreciation possible , though its efforts may not have been appreciated by everyone , is surely to be commended for its following of our ideal . And then that group of students which has been devoting so much effort to interesting the usual unconcerned and selfcente...

AMERICAN FOOTBALL TEAM DEFEATED BY LARGE SCORES IN TWO GAMES Catholic Univenity Overwhelms Inexperienced Eleven by 69-0 and St . Johns Repeats Process 63-0 Playing against much supertax teams , and showing a more or less lack of confidence resulting from the previous crushing defeat , American s inexperienced eleven was torn through by the Catholic University _gridders at Brookland on October 6 for a 69-0 defeat and by St . Johns College at Annapolis on last Saturday afternoon to the tune of 63-0 . The St . Johns game started inauspiciously for the _Washingtonlans when they fumbled the first kick-off and St . Johns recovered in A . U . s territory . St . Johns rather slow sec-ond-string backfleld was unable to gain through the line , but at last resorted to the air and completed a pass to place the ball within scoring distance . Several running plays pushed the ball over the goal line . For the rest of the first period the Eagles held their hosts in check , though the Quarter ended ...
