Junior Class Hislory X SEPTEMBER the Class of 1930 returned to A. I ' . to face the greater glories and greater duties of the Junior year. In all lines of student activity Juniors have taken an outstanding and commendable part. Having overcome the dan- gers of Freshman greenness and Sophomore super-sophistication, we have attacked the problems of our new estate with quiet confidence and determination, under the leader- ship of our newly chosen president, Jack Lafavre. The paramount duty of the Junior class, the publication of the Aucola, was entrusted to Milton Crist, editor, and Raymond Spaeth, business manager. The result of their labor is seen in this year ' s Aucola. Juniors were also prominent in the publica- tion of the Eagle. Four of the members of the editorial staff were Juniors, and the most popular feature of the paper was tin ' column, " Around-the-World-with-YYally, " written by our own jovial Junior, Wallowitz. The leadership of the whole college in Student Government was entrusted to a Junior, Lee Field. Mr. Field also won some renown with his orchestra, " The College Commanders, " which has been in demand for college dances the last two years. In the dramatic work of the college. Juniors have taken an outstanding role during our entire career. As far back as our Freshman year, Lucille Sparks played the feminine lead in tin- Spring play. Sophomore year again found the class of ' 30, play- ing the leads in the persons of George Sixbey, Milton Crist, Lucille Sparks, Laura Barrett, and Sara Martz, comedienne ex- traordinaire. This year George Sixbey was elected president of the Dramatic Club. The record of the football team this year will not be remem- bered for the brilliant scores, but those of us who watched them tight with undying courage against heavier, more experienced teams will not be likely to forget the spirit and valor shown on the gridiron. Here again Juniors did their part. The news- papers were unanimous in their praise of " Tiny " Crist, quarter- back, while Lafavre, Wallowitz, and Field were in the play all the time. The basketball team, captained by Jack I.afavre, enjoyed a successful season. The work of Leon Schloss, another Junior, contributed largely to its success. Juniors were prominent in co-ed athletics, also. Alice Hetzel, " Alarty " Bricker, " Beth " Hill, Delsie Appel, and Mary Chadwick played on the varsity hockey team, which tied with ( i. W. When the office of Student Comptroller was created by the Administration, it was necessary to go to the Junior Class to find the man capable of filling the place. Edwin Kelbaugh was chosen. It is safe to say that no activity in the college has been entirely slighted by the Class of 193(1 But in spite of its many duties, it has not forgotten its scholastic obligation and its record is high in studies. We feel that our Junior year has been successful because we have given all that our talent allows to American. Hut as we pass into our Senior year we sing with Pauline Frederick: " American — Alma Mater, Lead cm — the day is new; Tin march begun must yet he won Tii tin- glory of ( Irange and Blue.

" Whether this nomer was pinned on the rotund " Napoleon " because he is a lawyer or because the whole name is too much of a mouthful for mere college hoys to pronounce is of no matter. What we want to tell the world is what was accomplished under his regime. Remember, in 1925, A. U. was a school with the enormous enrollment of 81 boys and girls. Half of these were boys and 90 per cent of these were out for football the day after school opened. Next September a new man will take the place as skipper of A. L ' . ' s athletic barque. Let those of us who are still ' here and those of us who leave this June remember the man who placed the Golden Eagle in the respected position where it reposes today. Respected lor its sportsmanship and valor ami its always — clean play. Let us now briefly survey athletics as they have been at A. U. in the past four years. 192: FOOTBALL The first eleven averaged 152 pounds. Three games were played. All were lost. It was this team which set the precedent of playing George Washington with every ounce of fight they had. Five hist downs were reel- ed off by the ( range and Blue in this struggle. Van Hise, Bittinger, and Bilbrough cavorted at end, Speer and Gerth, tackles; Spence, Young, and I ' arrish, guards; Atkinson, center; Gray and Reyonlds, quarterbacks; Clark and Chrsitie, halves; Leaver and Beasley, fullbacks. BASKETBALL Seven games were played, with A. I " , victorious over the C. L. frosh, and defeated by the .Maryland frosh, Gallaudet, twice; Georgetown Frosh, twice; C. L. frosh, once. " (He Tom " Sawyer did yeoman duty throughout the season, but he was ably assisted by Bittinger, Clark, and Reynolds, forwards; Bilbrough and Havward, centers; Christie and Sullivan, guards. Sawyer was captain of this first court club, ami those of us who remember him will always think of him as gentle- man, athlete, and friend to all. Seeley X. (Doc) Gray managed athletics for both teams in this year. 1926 F )( )TBALL BASKETBALL Coaches ' heaven ! Springston found Five newcomers to A.

Several members of the afore- named were forced to withdraw, and the new lineup saw " Court} ' " Hav- ward in center, " Jim " and " Woody " Birthright in guards, and " Bill " Ca- ples and Lee Field in forwards, along with Jack La Favre. Bittinger, of three year football fame, came out and proved himself adept at the game. Six victories as against nine defeats reads the record. Big (im was picked on the all-college five as a result id ' his herculean efforts. 1928 FOOTBALL Donald Bittinger, four times end, received the captaincy of this year ' s grid club. One victory and one tie was achieved. Material was scarce, but spirit was plenty.

Additions to the schedule made it possible for the men ' s team to include New York University and Princeton University on their trip March 1st. The women ' s trip on March 7th included Emerson College of ( ratory and Boston University, in Boston, and New York University. Outstanding men ' s teams that visited Washington were from Carleton, Boston University. Princeton University, New York University , and Western Reserve. The season opened with a successful clash with George Wash- ington University for the men, and two victories for the women in a triangular debate with Western Maryland College, and Hood College. Interest in debate has been increased by the use of four different subjects — Resolved: that complete freedom of speech and press is unsound, and Resolved: that the present jury system should be abolished, were used most frequently. The other ques- tions for debate were — Resolved: that American civilization can- not advance under democracy, and Resolved : that national adver- tising is a social and economic menace. Freshmen debaters, this year, were organized into a special class. Discussion of debate technique preceeded general practice. The Freshmen were organized into teams to offer opposition to the varsity debaters, as well as to train the former in the art of debate.

Scott Leverett Stowell Russell Lambert Winston Manning College Calendar As is generally known, there are calendars of all types. The kind which has aristocratic leanings, often rates the parlor, while the bourgeois calendar seldom gets farther than the dining room. Then there is the kitchen calendar, which is usually the gift of the grocer. But in our classification — let us pause for a moment in silent mourning for the calendar whose life is so obliterated in its infancy; the type which is so very ugly that it needs must be instantly thrust into the blazing stove. Unappalled at the great variety of calendars in existence now, the Aucola Staff insists that a new species be created to go toddling down the corridors of time. Its form is as follows: September 18 — The Chancellor of the University gave a reception for the members of the Faculty only. None of the students bothered to attend. September 19 — The Chapel doors having once again been opened, the open- ing exercises were opened by Dr. Elmer Morgan of the National Education Association, which opened the fourth session of the College of Liberal Arts. September 21 — The faculty and students were very pleasant with one another at the reception held in their respective honors. September 28 — New students stared at old students and old students stared at new students at the first All College Frolic of the year. October 21 — On this Sunday the campus swarmed with dads, papas, and fathers and now and then an occasional mamma, for it was Dad ' s day at the University. October 23 — We gathered in chapel to hear the president of DePauw Univer- sity discuss a simplification of the simplification of the Einstein Theory of Rel- ativity, and other things. October 24 — On this day a Hungarian pianist entered chapel and flitted here and there over the keyboard with alacrity. October 26 — The only persons who didn ' t enjoy the Hallowe ' en dinner were those who did not attend. November 3 — Dark the Gymnasium but light the feet at the Brecky Club dance, for the fuses had blown. November 10 — Every one, from the little boy eating peanuts in the back row- to the deaf old gentleman at the extreme front of the hall, was the supreme model of interested attention during the musical lecture of Dr. Sigmund Spaeth. November 16 — The gymnasium greatly resembled a Turkish Bazaar during the foreign dinner of the Women ' s Guild. A greater variety of objects, animate and inanimate, one never saw — bishops, chancellors, tiaras, foreign waitresses, bass drums, dancers, ambassadors, and basketball nets were only a small part of the great whole. November 22 — No one in chapel had an open book on his knees when Zelava. tlie Nicaraguan pianist, sat at the Steinway Grand. The music was so beautiful that even the heartless attendance monitors could not restrain an occasional tear of unrestrained happiness. November 27-December -1 — The students went home for the Thanksgiving holidays in order to pursue their studies. December 7 — The mid-semester grades having already been handed in, the Faculty Woman ' s Club tried to make amends to the students by giving a party. December 12 — Milton B. Crist, who spends his Sundays in the capacity of a minister and his week days frying his foes on the gridiron, was elected captain oi the football team at its annual banquet. December 18 — Classes were sorrowfully given up for Christmas Holidays. January 11 — South African students descended on the University like wolves on the fold, liking neither American prohibition nor ice-cream served in the winter season. January 12 — " Shakespeare ' s Women " were discussed by Mrs. Forbes-Rob- ertson Hale. Many authorities on the subject were in the audience. January 30 — Because he was a neighbor and an accommodating one, David Lawrence, president of the " United States Daily, " gave a chapel address on " The Trend of the Times. " The half hour passed pleasantly. February 2 — " The Jesters ' Club, " living up to its cognomen, elaborately decorated one ball-room and held its dance in another, thus completely outwitting its guests, who wandered distractedly hither and yon. At length, a general assem- blage took place in the gymnasium, where " jest and youthful jollity " reigned. February 12 — Mr. William Knowles Cooper, Secretary of the Y. M. C. A., gave a Lincoln Day address in chapel, but did not stay for the afternoon tea of the Women ' s Guild at the Residence Hall. February 22, March 2, and March 8, 9 — These dates represent a battery of extemporaneous speaking contests in which awards were awarded to those who won awards. On the other hand, those that did not receive awards were awarded nothing. March 16 — The great emancipator and Saint of Ireland, Patrick, was born ages ago today. In appreciation of this fact a tasty dinner a la St. Patrick was disposed of by the student body. March 22 — All the College frolicked at the All College Frolic, which was replete with : " Quips and cranks and wanton wiles. Nods and becks and wreathed smiles. " April 5 — The art of " Terpsichore " advanced just one step farther when the Sophomores invited the college to trip the light fantastic toe at their annual dance. Thus, one after another, the events came tumbling over us. and now nothing- is left but memories; but let us look to the future, tor there is one as a man by tin- name of Shakespeare so aptly put it : " Tomorrow and tomorrow. Creeps in this petty pace from day in day To the last syllable of recorded time. " Orchestra I R. I ,EI N l-.W EBEK Conductor I ' .LAKE ESPEY Manager Calvin Brown Librarian Mlle.

Earl Masincup Leon Schloss Clyde Williams The Brecky Club is composed of graduates of Central High School of Wash- ington, and was formed to interest the high school students in American Univer- sity. The club is purely social, the members of the various Washington high schools being the guests of honor at the dances and card parties. The first event of the year was a masquerade on November 3rd, and the second a dance mi January 5th. Each of these was a great success (socially and financially!. Clever decorations, good music, and " eats " added to the enjoyment. IHIUMOU Do you know who the laziest man in the world is? " " No; who is he?
