THE COLLEGE On Intensity of I nte _Pe ctu al Activi t y [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 23 March 1938
THE COLLEGE On Intensity of I nte _Pe ctu al Activi t y by Professor John A . Davis An intensity of Intellectual activity is essential to the soul of a college . After examinations and the close of the first semester It is especially fi tting to be concerned with the quality of academic work at Lincoln . The recent grades make it clear that here is much to be desired as far as the general level of schola rship is concerned , and there is a strong suspicion that the academic achievement of the present student body is fai’ below that of former classes at Lincoln . It is the purpose of this article to point out certain of the fallacies in the app _m’oach of the student body toward scholarthip , and to clarify the _pi’imnary aims of college life , It is apparent at the outset that there is a general lack of zeal , of esprit in attacking the business of a college education , Study is appi’oached f rom a high school point of view as a task to be done only under the sevei’est compulsion , ...
NEGRO _ ifISTOR Y AFRICA EXPLORED by FRANCIS N . NKR UM 4 [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 23 March 1938
NEGRO _ ifISTOR Y AFRICA EXPLORED by FRANCIS N . NKR UM 4 Circumstances alter cases . _It was my desire to continue the histo rical survey of Negro activities In the early civilizations . I Intended to demonstrate that long before Egypt was Egyp t , long before the foundations of the Sphinx and the Pyramids were laid , the Sahara Desert was fertile and ~ _blossomeci with 4 harvest . It was then that the Badarian civilization was born , a civilization that might have done more to crystalize the civilization of Egypt . The creators of this early civilization were the Ham ites and Semites . The latter came down from Arabia , mingled their blood with the Ham ites In the then fertile regions of the Sahara Desert , and the Badarian civilizat ion crysta _lIzed . If biblical assertions and deductions are true , that the children of Ham ( Hamites ) were the progenitors of the Negro race , then one might conclude that the Badarian _~ _iiviLlzat ion was characte _iristical ly Negroid , The dis...
Marking Time [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 23 March 1938
Marking Time Protest ! Protest ! The voice of protest is raised contirnially at Lincoln . Men Voice their opinions . They vent their dislikes . That is a healthy sign , one to be encouraged on any campus , in any college , This privilege , however , should be used with judgement and delièacy . When men allow minor conisderations and petty incidents to commandeer this powerful instrument and squander its potentialities , they prove one of two things : either they have _d’tot the ability to discern the valuable and the invaluable , _or- ~ hey _d o not observe the benfit s of freedom of spee ~ h _. ~ The Lin coln man concerns himself too much with petty details and as a cçnsequence allows the larger issues to be neglected . Students prattle about the food , ra tt les in windows , an d mu d on the foo tball field , but are but little concerned with such things as campus cleanliness , laundry rooms _~ all dormitories , and the _di sposition of stud ent _funda ; nor are they interested in...
Impro ving Community Life [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 23 March 1938
Impro ving Community Life The ideal of a liberal education is to enrich the life of the individual and to prepare him through intellectual discipline for able and effective group living . The incomplete fas hi on in which the f u ndamen tal idea back of a libe ral education has been realized has , for quite some time , been the subject of severe criticism . Harvar d , Yale , and many smaller institutions are now attempting to correct this obvious fa ult by developing a more coherent relationship between the academic and the non-academic . With this in mind , the residents of _Lincoln-Ashmun Hall have reorganized their dor mitory . The reorganized house plan is an important move in the history of Lincoln University for three main reasons . First , this movement signifies that the students of Lincoln have at last realized that living goes on while they are in college and does not merely start after graduation ; second , the students are genuinely interested in this project which is sh...
BOOK REVIEWS by Kenneth Dodson [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 23 March 1938
BOOK REVIEWS by Kenneth Dodson Edna St . Vincent Miilay ’ s Conversation at Midnight , is a demiplay in poetry , Interspersed with descriptive narrative , sonnets and sections of dialogue ; _It is a provocative and intelligent symposium on the most discussed topics of the day . In her previous works , Miss Millay has been content to write clever jingles and love sonnets which , although structurally perfect , suffered from the coldness which often accompanies periection , The present volume reveals the poet who has branched out _1 _n ~~ to more significant subject matter ; an artist who has become didactic in order to reflect the spirit of her times . The setting for Conversat _) . on at Midnight is the richly appointed drawing _room of Ricardo , a wealthy bachelor , liberal and agnostic , who has gathered together at his home , a group of his friends whose intellectual views range from the most reactionary to the more enlightened . During the course of the evening love , war , comm...
Daily Readin d [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 23 March 1938
Daily Readin d The library at most universities is the center of ‘ jntellectual activity ; at Lincoln it is the reading-room for ~ . the daily and weekly cartoons and comic strips . No one will deny that newspapers have a vital place in the college library , but when their less significant features satisfy too many of the students ’ intellectual curiosity , their importance relegates the more solid materials into a minor position . This preference of Lincoln students for externals _ratl _! er than fundamentals is reflected in most phases of _I our ~ dpilegiat ~ e life . Intellectual curiosity is dead here ; there is _, _little ~ urge or appreciation for creative work or mental ! _stimujl a- ~ tion and growth . If there is some way to increase reading _fox’ ~ s _‘ o ~ vn sake , we haven ’t learned the secret ; we have not _1 _e _~ ’ _~ . edj ~ to appreciate the possibilities of our library . _,
