We have striven to make it conform to the high standards which we have helped to develop. When your college days have become just a memory may this volume bring back to you recollections of those happy years spent here. 4» ' W here there is no vision, the people perish. G i r ECAUSE of tkeir faith in the youth of to-day ana in the future of education the far-sighted leaders of yesterday gave of themselves and of their resources for the founding ' of our college.

B.. Boston; D. ' ., Upp r Iowa; I ' ll, inn Uor oj tin I ' niri rsity. Every institution has its founder It was Dr. Clark who was responsible for the establishing of our College of Liberal Arts. Because of his leadership, his vision, and his hopes for Amer- ican University, we are here today. Not only is Dr. Clark the founder of our college, but he is also the loyal leader of its progress. The endowment has been increased, new buildings have been erected, and national re- cognitions have been gained through his guidance. With these accomplishments already here as lasting trib- utes to his zeal and enterprise, we can expect more and great- er progress through his efforts in the years ahead. GEORGE BENJAMIN WOODS B. A.. Northwestern; ,17. A.. Ph. ! .. Harvard; Dean of ' i,, Collegi and Professor of English. As pioneer students we have had a noble leader — our pioneer Dean. Dr. Woods has blazed a wonderful trail, he has set his goal high and we can see its attainment. Many men have the ability to be executives and thus make brilliant records. Many have those qualities which make them real friends and thus endear themselves to the hearts of their fellow citizens. Few, however, possess both qualities to a notable degree. Dr. Woods is one of those few, and thus far he has become a great instrument in building up the standards of our college and at the same time has en- deared himself to the hearts of the student body. MAR1 LOUISE BROWN B. A., DePauw; M. A., Iicli i in ; Dean of Women and As- sistant Professor of English. Our llean of Women is also a blazer of trails, for she has been a pioneer with us. Miss Brown has held up high stand- ards for us, not only in the academic part of college life, but also in the social activities of the student body. It has been largely through the efforts of Miss Brown that we have obtained such a wholesome and well-rounded social life in the college. Her long and constant association with young people has enabled her to gather a host of plans and ideas for entertainment. Our joys are her joys, our sorrows her sorrows, our hopes her hopes, and oar aims her aims. And above all she i an understanding friend. ELLERY CORY STOWELL, B. A.

She has, however, been helped in this work to a large extent by the fact that she obtained a spiritual advisor. The fact that she came from Boston where there is a large theological -cminary may have suggested her need.

II VRRIET IV TON II ashington, I). C. Taylor University, A ' sbury Collegi Harriet was convinced that an education without at least a taste of American University was not to be considered. At the last minute she decided that, come what might, she would take her degree from American University. As she joined the senior class at the beginning of the second semes- ter, we haven ' t had much chance so far to learn to know her, but we hope that she will soon share with us our en- thusiasm for A.

One ' s chosen profession does not very often occupy so important and inspiring a situation as it seems to do with Clarence. As a minister, for thus he will be, may he be successful and in no wise inconvenienced by the proverbial, Ladies Aiders. his least remark was worth The experience of the wise. PAULINE B. FORTNEY Harrhburg, Pa. Vespers Committee, ' 27- ' 28 Lucy Webb Hayes National Training School Jakie is quite an addition to A. U. She comes from Har- nsburg, which is a recommendation to all A. U. Pennsyl- vanians. Her Rust Hall training makes her valuable to the religious life of the college. She is always ready for fun and willing to work, and is very good company. If little labor, little are our gains Man ' s fortunes are according to his pains. ii i:ni i» L. McCLAl Hyattsville, WW. Aucola Staff, ' 26- ' 27; Dramatics Club, ' 26- ' 27; Oxford Fellowship, ' 27- ' 28. Scholastic, ministerial and domestic duties have sat verj heavily on the shoulders of this senior. Indeed, it might be -aid that life was very rough on him, were it not that he. always comes up smiling ' . But whether marriage bring joy or sorrow Make sure of this day and hang tomorrow. EDNA K. HAWKINS Otega, New J ork Lucy Webb Hayes National Training School. Hawks comes from Rust Hall and where we see Jakie, there we are apt to see Hawks. Although she is very quiet and good, (she is taking four classes in Religion, this semester), every now and then you get a surprise and Hawks shows you the other side where sha keeps a little devil hidden.

Marjorie tried the University of Chicago but even that didn ' t satisfy her. Perhaps she learned that Ethel had eome to A. U. and thought her example was good. Perhaps she realized that American is the best name to have on her diploma. Why, we do not know, but this we do know; that we are certainly glad she came in February to join our senior class.

Whether this year ' s Freshmen will always remember Pudd as a stern judge and destroyer of their peace remains for time to tell. Reside- filling the responsibility of this solemn office, he assumes all the sternness required for his dignified position behind the library desk. Love, well thou know, t no partnership allows; Cupid, averse, rejects divided vows. HAITI E C.

Carleton College; Eagle Staff, ' 27- ' 28; Aucola Staff, ' 27- ' 28. Annielouise is the kind of a girl who will cut an after- noon psych class to see a movie on semi-psychoanalysis and attribute it to education in order not to have her conscience hurt — or go to three Shakespearian plays in one week and call it a liberal education. We wonder if her books will ever balance. She ' s a peach of a girl — quiet, unassuming, re- served, and a tiny bit shy — a regular dear. If people were rated as securities, Annielouise would pass as gilt edge. To know her is to love her. LEWIS MARION CROSS Greensboro, Mil.

Instead, she spent four years at Williamsport Dickinson Seminary and then came to A. U., thus setting a precedent to be followed by many other Dickinsonians.

U. Ours rather has been the task of strength- ening and enlarging its glow, so that it would be recognized as a light and admired for its hardihood, clearness, and beauty. If we analyze this flame that has been handed down to us by the class of ' 29, we find that it is made up of several parts, each contributing its own essential light to the whole. The most outstanding of these parts is the candle of Scholarship, whose steady, faithful gleam is most necessary for the welfare of the col- lege. The class of ' 30, especially the feminine half of it, has kept alive and brightened this glow. The candle of Athletics is the most dazzling of them all, the one which attracts by far the greatest attention and publicity. Our class may well be called the class of athletes, for it has contributed generously to basket- ball and football teams, to cheerleading and to girls ' athletic teams also. The power of this light has increased many fold because of the spirit of ' 30. The candle of Organizations, which adds interest and sociability, has been strengthened by the class ' s support of existing activities and its origi- nating of new ones. The candle of Tradition, which can grow strong only with time, has been nurtured carefully by the sophomores. We have continued faithfully the traditions of the Big Brother and Sister Movement, the Gosling Court, and Freshman Day. Then the candle of Recreation and Good Fellowship has been bright- ened by two successful dances sponsored by the class. And so we keep on striving in the effort to give to those who will fol- low a light brighter than that which we received to build for them a college of which they may justly be proud. k } ( I I I I I I ) ' 1 ' ' I .

Edwin Brooks, Jr. S cri tary Frances Young Vice-Prt sid( nt Norman Cramer Treasurer Margaret Thornton F reslinian History LTHOUGH the class of ' 31 entered A. U. with as much conceit as any group of high school seniors ever possessed, before the end of the first week everything that resembled conceit had gone to the four ends of the earth — never again to be quite the same. Freshman rules went on with a bang, accompanied by the encour- aging information that the majority of them would remain in full force until after the Easter holidays. Then, to make the Freshmen more conspicuous and to give them a greater (?) feeling of importance, the Gosling Court ordered every member of the first year class to wear (in addition to a dink or arm-band) a beautiful green tag bearing name, address and all past history. For some reason, the athletic contests which were to lift a few of the rules, were not really successful from the standpoint of the Fresh- men. Tennis, football and hockey were all hoodooed. Perhaps one may as well admit the Freshmen failed to win each time they played. Then one day came the prospects of some real excitement. The Sophomores painted beautiful signs for the bulletin board and made clever speeches in the Chapel, inviting the Class of ' 31 to what was called Fresh- man Day. The Freshmen, however, either because they were accus- tomed to receiving engraved invitations or because there was something suspicious about the friendliness of it all, held a secret meeting (secret after a few nosey Sophs had been ousted by main force) and decided almost unanimously that they could not be present on the appointed day. So, officially, the day ended without the big party. It is rumored, though, that a number of Freshman boys remained on the campus. It is also rumored that they were sorry, for it seems it had never been their ambi- tion to look like Indians or to ride poles. And all this time the Gosling Court was fighting against great odds, for no court in the world could prevent Freshman girls from talking to men in any prescribed square foot, let alone from Fessenden Street to Conduit Road. The class for the most part, however, carried out the rules of the Court quite courageously, wearing pig-tails and playing with dolls as if they enjoyed it — which they probably did. But the Freshman dance is a different story, for everyone who attended, from the most conceited Senior to the least significant rookie, agreed that it was decidedly the best thing the year had brought forth. The new Freshman colors of jade and silver transformed the dining room from the bare place in which we eat our meals to an interesting night club decorated with silver balloons and streamers of colored paper. .lade and silver curtains covered the windows, while a garden of palms, appar- ently grown over night, partially hid the orchestra from view. For some reason, everyone seemed to have left his troubles in his school clothes, for nothing but happiness was in evidence on the night of the Freshman hop. Upper classmen came not to be accommodating but for a good time — and they had it. The Freshmen themselves decided that A. U. was a pretty good place after all.

If the sons of American University can maintain the spirit of fair play and clean sportsmanship as funda- mentally characteristic of all their inter- collegiate relationships, they may he said to have truly achieved. m Athletics Football R OS 111 I M ' N the fall of 1927, American University sent forth her third foot- ball team mustered from the ranks of a small male student body. Led by her formidable captain, Tom Sawyer, the team opened the season away from home against the strong Gettysburg eleven. Lacking much previous training and outclassed in weight and ' ' teamwork, A. U. was defeated by the Pennsylvanians by a score of 31-0. The next opponent tackled was George Washington U. who succeed- ed in beating the Eagles 27-0. This score does not at all represent the true merit of A. U. ' s football prowess for really the feat of holding the much heavier and more experienced G. W. eleven to four touchdowns was remarkable. It showed the results of profiting by our first game and benefiting by constant practice and scrimmage before the conflict. At this time Captain Sawyer withdrew from school and Bill Caples, stalwart center, was elected to the honoi of piloting his team. In the next game American succeeded in downing Blue Ridge by a 38-0 score. The brilliant playing of Crist and Birthright, flashy backs, was the deciding factor of this game; each crossed the goal line twice. After marching down the field for a tally on the first series of plays, the A. U. footballers wilted before the onslaught of St. John ' s College who defeated the Americans at Annapolis 36-6. Fumbling on the part of A. U. and swift end runs and passes by St. John ' s caused the game to turn out in that manner, but clever blocking of kicks prevented a single one-pointer by St. John ' s. A. U. encountered her hardest luck at Bridgewater where she lost the game by one point, 7-6. The game was featured by general poor playing and officiating. As their last opponents the A. U. grid-warriors met Gallaudet at Kendall Green. The failure of the A. U. passing attack and the stellar work of the Gallaudet backs resulted in defeat for Coach Springston ' s light but hard fighting team. As far as scores go, the season was a failure, but considering the experience gained, sportsmanship, co- operation, and fighting spirit in the face of odds, the pigskin season was not fought in vain.

( S I 1 I I i I ' ■y HE University expected great things of the basketball team this year, primarily because of its remarkable showing last year when the team won sixteen of its twenty-game schedule, includ- ing victories over such strong teams as the Uni- versity of Maryland, Gettysburg College and George Washington University. The first game for the varsity this season was played with Gettysburg College at Gettysburg at the inauguration of their new gymnasium. Our team was defeated in a hard-fought contest, but accepted its de- feat gracefully, as Gettysburg has a strong aggregation. The team for that game was composed of three members of last year ' s team, namely, James Birthright, Leon Shloss and Bruce Kessler; and Harold Scruggs, an outstanding star from Eastern High School in this city, and William Caples, a member of last year ' s squad. Our next game, which was played with High Point College of North Carolina, we won by a good margin. Our third game was played with George Washing- ton, our ancient rival. Every institution, whether it is a grammar school, high school or college, subcon- sciously chooses one particular opponent from its ath- letic schedule whose defeat gives untold satisfaction. George Washington has held that eminent position on our basketball schedule for the last two years. It is true that greater honor would come to us if we vanquished Catholic University, but for some inexplicable rea- son our sweetest morsel is the taste of victory over George Washington. Our team had been pointing toward this game for weeks and win or lose it promised to be a thriller. It was! We won the game by the score of twenty-three to twenty-one, after overcoming a six-point lead with but three minutes to play. Although we had won two of our first three games there was a conspicious lack of team play which seemed to accentuate itself as the season progressed and which was unquestionably responsible for the poor showing of the team. Outside of a close game with Catholic University on our home court, which they won by the score of twenty-nine to twenty, and an overtime game with the Duquesne team of Pittsburgh, there were few interesting contests until the game with Brooklyn Polytech. This was a rip-and- tuck affair throughout, American University winning by the score of thirty-four to twenty-six. Our last game was a home game with George Washington, and, like the first one on their court, was a battle royal. Our team held the lead until the waning minutes of the contest. With the score twenty-five to twenty, George Washington made four straight baskets, winning the game by the score of twenty-eight to twenty-five. The personnel of the team changed about mid-season and although Coach Springston was forced to inject new men in his line-up they in no way weakened the team. The team which completed the season deserves a great deal of credit, as most of them were inexperienced men. They were James Birthright, Woodson Birthright, Lee Field, William Caples, Courtney Hayward, Jack La Favre and Donald Bittinger. Captain Jim Birthright was the individual star of the team and ' was selected for the all-college team picked by the Washington Herald. 38059 w, OlllC ' l I Hoclk e 7 LINE-UP Center Forward Fellows R.

U. Freshmen. The Veni, vidi, vici attitude of the average freshman must be changed into one of submission, not only for the benefit of himself, but also for those who have to associate with him during the following four years. This duty falls to the Gosling Court. It enforces the laws as well as makes them, and the erring freshman finds himself facing an impartial but firm tribunal whose motto is, following Lincoln, We like to see a man proud of his University, and we like to see him live so that the University is proud of him. ; £ -SB 5SS3 Sk2 ■ V, c ©mwiittee Chairman W.

The custom has been established by the Vesper Committee of having a Dad ' s Day in the fall and a Mother ' s Day in the spring. This year the Committee has used mor e ideas.

' The question, Resolved : That American private in- vestments in foreign countries should not be given the military protection of the United States Government, was adopted as the question for all debates. After the squad had acquired a general knowl- edge of the technique of debate under the direction of Mr. Fleming, a series of practice debates was held prior to the regular intercollegiate debates. The season was opened with the clash between the New York Uni- versity men ' s negative team and the affirmative men of American Uni- versity. The debate proved to be of real interest throughout, and the Capitol City Collegians made a splendid showing. However, New York University won the unanimous decision of the judges, probably because of their delivery. The first women ' s debate at American Univer- sity was between the Ohio Wesleyan affirmative women and American ' s negative women. The decision was rendered two to one against us, but it is hoped that this year ' s new material will make a champion team next year. A victory from the affirmative team of the University 01 Florida, March 2, was followed by a dual victory from the Western Maryland men ' s Team, March 3. Further successes are expected at the debates with Carleton College, New York University women, Ohio Wesleyan men, and dual debates with William and Mary. Every member of the debate class has worked unselfishly for the interests of the squad. Much of the success of the 1928 debate season has been due to the untiring efforts of Mr. Arthur A. Fleming, graduate of Ohio Wesleyan and instructor of debate at American University. m -Dramatics •Uliilb Faculty Advisor Mr. Will Hutchins Preside at Arthur Gerth Vice-President Sara Martz Secretary Irene Dezendorf Treasurer David Morgan ROLL Delsie Appel Laura Barrett Samuel Bilbrough Edwin Brooks Roberta Brown Mary Chad wick Orrel Belle Clafflin Milton Crist Marion Cross W.

Gray Louis oung Faculty Advisor Mr. Will Hutchins HE editor wishes to take this opportunity to thank all those who have so willingly co-operated in helping to make this publication a success. The underclass members of the art staff, Mary Chadwick and Gladys Macafee, are especially deserving of commendation for their cheerful and tireless effort. They have contributed the greater share of the art work for the book. A publication of this kind involves an immense amount of routine work. No member of the staff has been more faithful than Annielouise Flaig, who has borne the entire burden of the secretarial work for both the editorial board and the business board. Mrs. William F. Hall has truly been a patroness of the Aucola. The proceeds from the sale of sandwiches, which she provided, considerably alleviated the worries of the business manager. A fine spirit of co-operation has been evidenced by Donald Olmstead and his committee, who labored so efficiently and effectively in planning the minstrel show. The sympathetic attitude, interest and co-operation of Mr. Hutchins, the faculty advisor, have been a valuable encouragement. To all those who have directly or indirectly contributed toward the success of this Aucola the editor desires to express his sincere appreci- ation. HE extent to which a man possesses vitality and vigour, the force or lire, measures in no uncertain terms the success or that man. A man may have faith, he may have deter- mination and will, he may have the best of ideals; inspiration and desire for achieve- ment may he his; hut if hack of all these there is not that force of life he is nothing.
