AIST CHELTENHAM, MARYLAND Blue Ridge College, New Windsor, Md., 1, 2; Phi Beta Zeta, 3, 4. Now I know you ' ll hate this Dud, old boy — but you ' re one of the few good looking boys here — I feel in writing this, that I ' m exploding a bomb (that ' s if you take the time to read your own write-up). You ' re dreadfully serious about things, aren ' t you? But it ' s nice, too, to find someone who sees the funny things in their proper perspective. DELSIE ALDEN APPEL WASHINGTON, I). C.

Delsie is an actor — an integral part of our Dramatics. In contrast with her usual na- ture, she is haughty and dignified mi the stage, or quiet and proper on occasions. We like the radiant personality that is hers, and most of all we like the friendliness and charm of her greetings, which make us know thev are sincere. LAURA K. BARRETT WASHINGTON, D. C. Agnes Scott College, 1; Class Honors, 3; Eagle, 2, 3; Dramat, 2, Vice-President, 3, President, 4; French Club, Vice-President, 2; Aucola, 3. A black-robed Shakespearean figure, the upper society outcast from the East Side, the hysterical mystery lady in the detective thriller — would one suspect this slight brown-haired girl of being so versatile? Laura is like a quiet little brook that runs smoothly along for miles through the mead- ows, performing its functions thoroughly but self-effacingly — and then suddenly flows over a cliff and one sees its beauty and worth in the unexpected waterfall. BERTHA BERMAN NEW YORK, NEW YORK New York University, 1, 2; Swagger Club, 3, -I. Bert is a study in contrasts. Think of a bright " Skrip " blue and then contrast with that her shining black hair and eyes and you will have the keynote to Bert as we know her. Bert is always well-dressed. No gale ever blew that would disturb her wave or her pleats — she is well-known and liked — yet this young lady writes her history papers weeks ahead of time ! HARRIET BITTLE MYERSTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA Albright College, 1, 2, 3. Fancy soap manufacturers would call Harriet the " out-door girl, " or speak of " that school girl complexion. " Harriet re- minds us of summer harvesting days when the wind is blowing the threshing grain, or of clear crisp autumn days when the autumn colors, the blue sky, and the brisk wind make the day a glorious one. WILLIAM BRADFORD VIENNA, VIRGINIA Atlantic Union College. Quiet, serious, Bradford went about bis work with that appreciation of its possi- bilities that one often finds in those who have worked — or taught as he had — for sev- eral years before finishing college. Those few who did know him have high praise for his reserved but charming manner, for his delightful smile, and we are mighty sorry be left before graduating. , l KTII FRANCES BRICKER LEMOYN K.

The old " Martha and Mary " has been changed now to " Marty and Mary " but it could never be said about Marty that she was " cumbered about much serving " since the keynote to her personality is quiet effici- ency and poise. She accomplishes every- thing she tries to do with a quiet gracious- ness that indicates the integrity and fineness of the personality behind it all. M kY ALICIA CHADWICK WASHINGTON, I). C.

Dramatic Club, 2; 2, 3; (Irchestra, 2, ti ' s Athletic Associ- Cbad is an enigma to most of us. She is artistic, she plays the violin, she is good in athletics. These details, however, do not connect, and none of them seem to express the real girl inside — the girl back of that small intense face and the grey-blue eyes. H MYRTLE CLEMMER SCHNECKSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA Rust Hall, I, 2, 3; Glee Club, 4; International Relations Club, 4. Myrtle has interesting eyes — eyes of an intense blue — a sunset blue that is over- shadowed with the golden light of the eve- ning so that the blue color is light but un- usually penetrating. We wonder from our short acquaintance just what that intensity means — Does she have occult powers or is she merely piercing through some ancient philosophy in intense concentration? MILTON BERNARD CRIST BALTIMORE, MARYLAND Football, 1, 2, 3, Captain, 4; Class Basketball, 1, 2, 3, 4; Vice-President History Club, 1; Dramatic Club, t, 2, 3, 4; Student Council, 3, 4; Gosling Court, 2; Editor of Aucola, 3; Oxford Fellowship, 3, 4; President of Class, 4. Our plucky football captain has had lots of fingers in lots of pies at A. U. Foot- lights never bother him in acting the perfect lover. Crist has not neglected the true game of hearts, either. But essentially he is a preacher, and we predict his smile and dynamic personality will carry him far in that field. Rl )S LIE DIMMETTE WASHINGTON, I). C. Eagle, I, 2; Draraat, 2, 4; Brecky Club, 2, 3, Secretary, 4; Class Honors, 2; Recording Secre- tary Girl ' s Glee Club, -t; French Club, 4. Whether peering over the footlights or just in class room, Rosalie ' s charming per- sonality is captivating. She is one of those clever wits whose knowledge dues not he- come horing. In a grand way she is foster- ing better intercollegiate relations between American University and Harvard. DOROTHY ENSOR NEW WINDSOR, MARYLAND Rust Hall, 1, 2, 3; Glee Chili, 4. I lorothy ' s personality and appearance may lie symbolized in a wild rose growing on a newly plowed field in the spring. The pink blossoms are soft and dainty against the rich fragrant brown of the field — a delicate, graceful contrast that is true also in Doro- thy ' s brown curls and clear coloring. And again it is true in her cheerful smile and serious attention to work.

Monsieur le Critique is so unassumingly well-read that no one has yet heen able to explore all the recesses of his mind. His charming manner makes him a most perfect Frenchman. He is just the type that will keep Young through old age. I.I.I. .M1 FIELD CHIPPEWA FALLS, WISCONSIN Carleton College, 1; Football, 2, 3, 4; Basketball, 2, 3, 4; Jesters Club, 3, 4; President of Student Council, 3. A slow, easy life and Lee Field arc synonomous, although during the past year he has speeded up to a marked degree. It is pleasant to talk to Lee. Sometimes when In- plays the guitar and sings in the warm spring evenings, you can drift away to the land where the breeze is always warm, where the trees whisper and the sea rises and falls easily — slowly — HELEN L. GOODM . FREDRICK, MARYLAND University of Richmond, !, 2; Class Hockey Team, 3; Varsity Hockey Squad, .1; French Club, 3, 4; Emjlc Staff, 3, -1; Glee Club, 4. A young man once said that Helen re- minded him nf a wooden cigar store Indian. But she doesn ' t look at all like an Indian. Her beauty has been the inspiration for poets of a neighboring college. She is as romantic as the moonlight, as gay as a babbling brook, as pleasant as a shady path, and as meditative as the sea — but she is still the wooden cigar store Indian — an enigma. I I.I.I AM (,.

Bill is the ideal gentleman in the eyes of biology students (feminine). He it is, who — rather than spreading out his coat to pro- tect their long skirts from the mud — deli- catch ' and with finesse puts the little frog- gies to sleep. There are other times, too, when in philosophy. Dr. Sinclair will say, " Has the existence of ether been proved? How about that, Mr. Hamilton? " that Bill ' s ingenuity and knowledge arc heavily taxed.

Since Kclbaugh has become the financial and business expert about the University, he has almost disappeared from the campus. But there are some of us who remember his antics in the gymnasium and the prodigious swats he used to take at the indoor baseball. If he had the time he would probably like tn do tricks on the mat and on the liar again. The life of a business man is hard. JOHN F.

Manherz started his college career off very well, but then he got married, which 1 roves, we suppose, that there really is lots of romance left in college life.

Rick ' ice-President Secretary Sophomore Class SOPHOMI RE class writing its history is like a young man of twenty-five beginning his memoirs. A past needs to lie dimmed by mellow years before it can he quite safely transferred to paper. It was really a rather frightened herd of freshmen that wandered around the campus in the first few weeks of school. Somehow we managed to get together long enough to hold an election, resulting in the success of Russell Lambert. President; Elsie Sandberg, Vice-President; Dorothy Mathews, Secretary; and Yule Fisher, Treasurer. As time went on, we became aware of a growing inconvenience arising from a certain institution known as the Gosling Court. With the artless simplicity of most freshmen, we had taken it for granted that frosh rules existed only to lie broken. We were doomed, alas, to disillusionment. There appeared a summons on the bulletin board, hushed and solemn sittings ensued, and a miraculous change came over the campus. Came spring, and with it a general exodus of faculty and students to that versatile sward between Hurst Hall and the dormitory known at that time as the kitten ball held. The freshmen won the prize — a cup offered by Wally Wolowitz. Now we are sophomores. It took us several weeks to realize that, and at least twice as many to forget it again. We had new seats in chapel and found an increasing difficulty in remembering the numbers of our courses; otherwise life moved on much as before. Our officers were elected promptly: Edwin Ross, President; Dorothy Darby, Vice-President; Jane Rice, Secretary; Yule Fisher, Treasurer; and William Washburn, Sergeant-at-Arms. The most exciting moment of the first semester occured late one evening in October. The freshmen had dared to paint a " 3 " over the " 2 " in our cherished " 32 " on the road between the gym and Hurst Hall; the sophomores were clamor- ing for revenge. Bob Burr, in an inspired moment, tied a wet towel around his head and climbed up the inside of the smoke-filled chimney at the heating plant. Reaching the top, he hoisted a banner bearing the proud insignia, ' " M. " As we go to press, the waiters are still sliding around in the dining room from the effects of the sophomore dance. True to our tradition, it was a Valentine celebration. The ceiling was festooned with crimson lanterns and hundreds of little red hearts. Being sophomores, we were of necessity sophisticated, — hence the cabaret effect, and the entertainment. .... All things must have an end, even Late Lights; so the sophomore his- tory must wait till next year for a continuation.

U. " trailing clouds of glory. " The removal of all restrictions upon the freshmen as indi- viduals has not only proved conducive of per- sonal beatitude but seems also to have prompted a record-breaking commencement in the life of the college. In view of the achievements of their " cocky " little brothers and sisters, upper classmen sin mid have little criticism to offer. Scholastically the rookies have vied with their predecessors by a successfully increased aspiration and realization of class honors. Journalistic tendencies in the class are evidenced by the appearance of the names of nine members on the Eagle masthead. Debate, dramatics, and the various organizations, blue stocking and social, have claimed recruits from among the versatile new- comers. In athletics both boys and girls have gained intramural repute. Although defeated by the sophomores in the tug-of-war, the freshmen retaliated by a big football victory, and, as the seasons progressed, produced an invincible basketball team. The girls ' hockey team, was able to take a game from the sophomores, a creditable performance for players newly introduced to the sport, and at time of writing first year girls are regularly joining in upperclass basketball practice, which promises well for the quality of the team to be chosen. Furthermore, the freshman class fur- nished very valuable material for the varsity and scrub of both the football and basketball teams. In fact, three members of the varsity basketball team were yearlings. This class has already surpassed all predecessors as far as members are concerned, and it gives promise of equalling or sur- passing those earlier pioneers, in all phases of college life. The class elected as its officers: Max Schaul, President; Phyllis Adelman. Vice-President ; Katherine Renter. Secretary; and Alan Blanchard.

The Rt. Rev. James E. Freeman, Bishop of Washington, received the club at his home in the Cathedral Close, and appointed Rev. William Welton Shearer, Rector of St. Columba ' s Church, as its chaplain. The club is a part of the National Student Council, an organization of Churchmen which extends to more than three hundred colleges and universities in the United States. It ' s program contains five points which are Worship, Religous Education, Church Extension, Service, and Meetings. Services are h eld each Sunday at St. Columba ' s Church, and daily at the Bethlehem Chapel of the Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul. A Corporate Com- munion is held on the second Sunday in each month at St. Columba ' s and the meetings on the first and third Mondays in each month. brecki] Club OFFICERS Yule Fisher President Dorothy Darby Vice-President Rosalie Dimmette Corresponding Secretary Anne King Recording Secretary Bruce Aitciiison Treasurer MEMBERS Henry Backenstoss Audrey Beli Dorothea Belz Elizabeth Brundace Orrel Belle Claflin Warren Colison Margaret Dimond Burke Edwards Doris Evans ( iWENI ' oLI N FOLSOM Alice Louise Form Louise ( loi di nberg Margaret Hakhy Grace Hart Kthelwyn Hine Lee Huntzberc;er Elizabeth Jacobs Charlotte Iam ieson Alfred Johnson Henry Johnson Eleanor Jon nston Cornelia Kirby Hazel Kirk W.

The club takes an active part in the social life of the college, giving two dances yearly to which members of the vari- ous local high schools are invited as guests of honor. The first dance this year was a Hallowe ' en masquerade, which is still being talked about. The second is to be a Mad March Affair. A bridge at the home of the president and a theater party to the National were held with great success during the Christinas holidays.

Rice Phi Beta Zeta N FRIDAY, March 22, 1929, five men of American University met to consider the formation of a club or a fraternity. These men were Messrs. Spaeth, Tompkins, Hamilton, Bryner, and Lambert. The re- sult was the birth of a new fraternity on the A. U. campus, Phi Beta Zeta. It was decided to model the the order of King Arthur ' s Court, and the follow- ing officers were elected: Mr. Spaeth, Sir Knight; Mr. Hamilton, Squire; Mr. Lambert, Royal Scribe; Mr. Tompkins, Chancellor of the Exchequer; and Mr. Bryner, Seneschal. Bids were extended to five men for membership in the fraternity, Messrs. Rice, Lichliter, Jarvis, Haworth, and Fuchs. These men were installed immediately, giving the organization a membership of ten in its first year. A tradition was established when the fraternity gave a banquet on May 29, in honor of its first graduating member, Mr. Rice. Every succeeding year the senior members of Phi Beta Zeta will be thus honored. The reopening of school in September saw two men taken from active membership, Mr. Haworth, who did not return to school, and Mr. Rice, who became Phi Beta Zeta ' s first alumni member, and a member of the faculty of American University. Four new men were given membership in the fraternity, Messrs. Aist, Kelbaugh, Masincup, and Ross. New officers elected for the ensuing year were: Mr. Spaeth, Sir Knight; Mr. Hamilton, Squire; Mr. Fuchs, Royal Scribe; and Mr. Masincup, Chancellor of the Exchequer. On October 9, a smoker was given at the Cairo Hotel, to which a select number of men were invited. On October 15, the faculty of the University announced their recognition of Phi Beta Zeta as one of the recognized fraternities on the American University Campus. Messrs. Spaeth, Hamilton, Fuchs, Lichliter, Aist, Kelbaugh, Masincup, and Ross were declared active members. Eleven men have been pledged to the fraternity. They are Messrs. Schaul, Bowers, Hoover, Sells. Target-, Diehl, G. Williams, Larson, Marcus, J. Carter, R. Fuchs. Eby McLaine, and Perry Snider. Several social meetings have been held for the entertainment of the pledges, and a dance was given to them on December 8. at the Wesley Heights C lull. A spring outing, a theater party, and the spring formal complete the activities fur the year.

" Something new had come to A. U. Here it was September 1st and the nucleus of the football squad was on the field. A coach had come to A. U. — a full time coach — an enthusiastic, successful coach ; and football took on a new meaning. " Now the duck waddle — never mind the mud, this isn ' t a tea party, it ' s foot- ball ! One — two — three — four — . " School opened and the squad increased. For the first time the college had regular practice ; rain, shine, or dates. The squad included over two full teams now, and they were a toughened bunch. They didn ' t pant after that run around the field, and they yearned for scrimmage. They broke the tackling dummy support — built a new one — and broke it again. They developed a morale, a spirit where team and school were strangely intermingled and with that development came a parallel growth of the spirit in the student body. The challenge came from Capt. Crist — " Do you want a winning football team? All right, you show the winning spirit between now and October 5th and on that day we ' ll show you a winning football team ! " " EAGLES CRUSH SHENANDOAH! " 51-0 Led by Captain Crist the Eagles came out of a month ' s intensive training and trounced the Shenandoah eleven. The A. U. team was supe- rior in every phase of the game. The boy from Chillicothe, " Hoke " Targee, showed the " sophis- ticated Easterners " some flashy football, going over the goal line three times. Lee chalked up two more scores in as many attempts at ball carrying, while Milt, Jack, and Reds also made touchdowns. Parke, lack, and Lee contributed ( OACH ... , points after the touchdowns. The school was wild. Its football team had " come through. " The spirit of a new athletic era spread like wild fire. Eagle Headline: " A. U. All Out.

" Practice: " One — two — three — four. That ' s enough — let ' s get on the dummy — snap into it— Get Mad! Jack, that ' s Clapper— Take him OUT! That ' s the way— Hit him HARD! " Crist, Captain : " There are five men on this team that are going to play their last football game against G. W. And believe me they are going to give their best. " Final Rally : " Altogether gang — what are we going to do tomorrow? " BEAT G. W. Spirit — reserves — coaching — rooters. Busses and private cars were packed with followers. A bus contained the squad. The men who were to make History that day and the supporters who were to go wild over that History swarmed down to Eastern Stadium. G. W. was heavy — G. W. was full of fight — G. W. was good. But an in- spired team that prematurely had reached its peak smashed through that heavy line, outfought the enemy, and proved their superiority in every part of the game. Eight to nothing was the score — 260 yards to 60 — a ratio of 3-1 of first downs. You all remember that day — every man giving his all — doing his best and more for his gang and his team. Hoke had to be removed because of injuries after several brilliant runs. He was replaced by Reds, who played the game of his life that day. Reds and Jack brought the ball to the one inch line and there after two futile attempts — Jack, the hardest hitting fullback in the school ' s history, crashed through that line for a score, while the stands went crazy. The hero of that game? There was no single hero. Every man on that team was a hero ! Every man on that squad was a hero! Ask the crowd who attended the bonfire and sang " Vic- tory for American " as it should be sung. And what a Victory ! BALTIMORE 13— A. U. 6 Baltimore proved too strong for the Eagles. Hut the victors knew they were in a football game. Baltimore scored in the first quarter and from then on to the last part of the game the battle was a royal one. The combination of LaFavre and Targee began to click and Jack crashed over for a score. The try for point after touchdown failed and the count was 7-6 when the superior weight began to tell on A. U. and before the game ended Baltimore had scored again, making the final tally 13-6. LOYOLA 35— A. U. The rooters at G. W. had been thrilled by the sight of an inspired team out- playing another team. At this Loyola game the rooters were thrilled by the sight of a crippled team fighting every moment against a superior, heavier outfit. Baker and Olmstead were on the cripple ' s bench. Targee joined them a few moments later. iJeihl was also injured. By the score the game was a defeat, but in morale ii was a tremendous victory. A. U. proved it could stand punishment, take a beating, grin, and go back for more WASHINGTON COLLEGE 20— A. U. 13 This last game of the season was a hard fought battle in every quarter. A. U. led at the half by reason of Jack ' s driving ability to go over a goal line re- gardless of who is there to stop him. In the second half a rejuvenated. Wash- ington College team ran up 14 points by a series of brilliant passes and a safety. They scored again in the final phase of the contest. Our second goal came when " Rus " Lambert intercepted a pass and ran for a touchdown. American ' s football season was over. When the echo of the last whistle of the season had died away five men left the field for the last time. To them the school owes a deep debt of gratitude. They played varsity football all through their college years performing nobly and well. " Milt " Crist, " Jack " LaFavre, " Lee " Field, " Wally " Wolowitz, and " Don " Olmstead go down in the football annals of A. U. as pioneers and fighters. To Coach Young goes the acclaim of the team and the entire student body. " Brigham ' s " untiring efforts, intense devotion to his team, and his youthful en- thusiasm have won for him a warm spot in the heart of every supporter of American University. And the school is waiting, eager and expectant for a greater season next year, confident in the prowess of its coach and its squad, ready to follow both with increased devotion. Halfback Targee Guard Markham Halfback DlEHL Johnson Halfback Shloss Tackle Baker Halfback Ol.SF.N Manager Fisher Assistant Managers MOFFETT, Bl-ANCHARD, UnDERWOO basketball Monday, November 17, 1020, is the date Destiny assigned to be the beginning of A. LT. ' s fifth basketball season; a season of vicissitudes, of upsets, of growth. Prospects were bright in those early afternoons. Four veterans, Captain Dave Lichliter, ex-Captain Jack La Favre, Leon Shloss, Lee Fields, together with Red Olsen, a last year ' s sub., formed the nucleus of a squad o f twenty applicants around which Coach Young hoped to build a great team. A new system of play was inaugurated and hopes ran high. " Exhibiting Superior Basketball, " Ameri- can Eagles defeated Maryland State Normal, 37-21. Was it a smile of Fate that " Reds " Olsen was high point scorer of the game? Was this a hint of what was to come, when the Flashing red-head would lead his team to vic- tory after victory in the face of overwhelming odds . ' High Point defeated our quintette by five points in a furiously fought contest. The lead changed hands several times and stopped at the wrong time. Dave, Jack, and Lee played a sterling brand of basketball for A. U. A. U. ' s upset came when four varsity players were declared disqualified for further competition. Dave, Lee, Jack, and Leon had played their last game for American U. and to them the school owes a debt of gratitude for their splendid contribution to A. U. ' s basket- ball record. The future loomed black and unpromis- ing. A seemingly second rate squad faced the toughest schedule in A. U. ' s history. Men who had never played a college basketball game, inexperienced, uncertain, devoid of individual brilliance or a sense of team cooperation, had to uphold the name of their college against superior teams. It was all wrong, it wasn ' t fair. These youngsters should wait and train, watch and grow, become wise to basketball strategy, learn by degrees to keep cool under fire, and as the season progressed, gradually to become initiated in college basket- ball. But-no-they were thrown into the game suddenly — harshly. A disappoint- ed — puzzled following was mildly interested in them, not as a team, hut as indi- viduals. They were not expected to do much. They didn ' t rank very high ac- cording to " those who know. " " Reds " Olsen was last year ' s substitute — high-point scorer in the Maryland game — a hard playing lad who took basketball seriously. He was the only one now left from the first string five — a " prop " who overnight was forced to assume the responsibility of leadership and of whom almost too much was expected. " Hoke " Targee was fast, but his ability to play a stellar game of basketball was doubted. He was too " high strung " to make a cool, deliberate, calculating guard to pair with Olsen. Speed was his only asset. Too bad he couldn ' t con- trol it. Oscar Sells had long arms and was strong. He had played the game in Tennessee. He was rough, crude, unpolished. The critics shook their heads. " He may be good in three years under good coaching — he has possibilities — but now? Hardly. " Warren Colison seemed to be a steady player of second team standard. He was a fair " pot-shooter, " but had never played basketball to any extent. People wondered why the coach put him in the first game at all. Didn ' t we say upsets and growth characterized A. U. ' s season? " Johnny " Woods had played in high school, but wasn ' t considered to be any wonder. He looked individualistic and his capacity to ht in with a team was doubted. He had a peculiar way of shooting, and appeared easy to stop. No, the future didn ' t look bright. And when this newly-formed five took a beating from Johns Hopkins, no one was amazed. But that first game was a queer one. It was away from home and few people saw it. We were defeated, but yet — something had happened. The team didn ' t say much about the game — yet at practise there was a change. They worked as though they had a new objective. The coach was silent, but worked a little differently, too, as though a hopeless task looked brighter. The defeat should have confirmed the belief of both school and player that A. U. had an inferior team. It almost did. But working like fiends at practice simply on the possibility of that " almost, " the team developed. Practice was held every day and some evenings. They had a plenty to learn. They were engrossed in fundamentals and strategic plays at the same time, and only a strange spirit of determination, a concentration based on high desire, en- abled them to progress as rapidly as they did. How they strove to fit themselves for the games that were ahead of them ! Advancement was slow and yet faster than all expectations. The team was defeated again — this time by George Wash- ington, but only by seven points. They were not yet read} ' . Another week of practice followed. Then the coach spoke — just a hint of what was to come — " I am not making any promises, but with the continued support of the student body, we ' re going to have a fighting squad on the floor at every game. " Some grinned at this statement. Most people who saw the G. W. game took it to heart and waited. The latter group had caught the spirit of development and were the wiser, although they couldn ' t explain why. The school knows only too well the record of this team. It is a story of close decisions — of upsets — demonstration of a mediocre five flashing superior basket- ball — winning games against the " dope " by sheer brilliance in team play and a fighting spirit that could not be stopped- an inspiring stoiy of growth.

" Thus did A. U. defeat its ancient rival on the hitter ' s court for the first time in four years. Duquesne won the following game — hut the write-up tells a story: " Scrappy American U. Quintet went down Fighting. " " Reorganized A. U. quintet scored an upset by defeating the pre-game fav- orite, Loyola, to the count of 21-18. " " Osca, the Mountaineer, " led the scoring with nine points. ELON 26— A. U. 29 " A. U. ' s Little Giants ( " giants " now — not a " reorganized " team) nose nut Elon for Victory. " " Flashy red-head leads team to victory with twelve points. " Loyola found our team in a slump and we dropped a game. But Sells was high scorer for the game, and Sells was not supposed to be good for a couple of years yet. Pre-season dope was on the decline rapidly now. " Targee leads Eagles in Avenging Earlier Beating. " Revenge was the key- note now — A. U. was out for blood, G. W. expected to win and was favored to win. But our team was hitting its stride. The headlines read — " Chalk up another upset victory for that scrappy American U. five. " Duquesne defeated us, but it was simply A. U. playing above its class. Two more home games resulted in victories. " Olsen leads American I ' , to victory— A. U. M — Salem 26. " " Those surprising American Eagles crashed through to another victory last night by taming the tigers of Salem College. " The days had passed when A. U. was fighting on the defensive. The Eagles had tasted victory and were out to win. They were " taming tigers " now no t merely putting up a good scrap — note the difference in attitude. And Gallaudet was the victim of that difference. " A. U. routs Gallaudet 40-21. " After that close first half the Eagles went on a scoring rampage and when the smoke cleared away, Johnny had increased his total by seventeen points, with " Osca, " Reds, and Colie following in close order. Hoke kept Cosgrove, scoring ace of district, clown to five points. A team ran wild, and substituted " rout " for " tame. " After the Gallaudet rout, " The Little Davids " went rapidly on with the re- maining games. They met two great teams, and in close contests defeated one and lost the other. Either team would have swamped us in the early stages of our season but not now. " EAGLES SUBDUE BALTIMORE IN THRILLER " You remember that last home game — speed — close guarding — spectacular playing — and dominating it all was the score that hovered first a point in our favor then a point in theirs. It w-as two minutes to play and Baltimore was leading by one point. " Time out for American. " Thoughts raced hack to the conditions of things at the first of the season when these youngsters were cramming funda- mentals and working out plays hand in hand — working only upon a faint hope almost a myth. They had made phenomenal progress — yet — would they let up at this the tight place in their basketball career? The whistle blew and the final rally was on. We obtained the ball — a pass to Colison — over to Woods and Johnny slid through two Baltimore guards and American was a point ahead ! The end came fast. Destroying the last hopes of the opponents, our team took the ball from them — " Osca " threw a forward pass to Reds and Reds made the last score in our court for the Season — victory by three points. " EAGLES LOSE LAST GAME, 30-21 " Mere was an exhibition of guarding " par excellence. " Our team had met men who could stick, but never players with the degree of tenacity that the St. John ' s possessed. Fourteen to eleven stood the count at the half — their favor — and after the half the home team ran up six points — never to be headed. With- out doubt this Annapolis crowd was the best outfit we played, and they well de- served to win. A. U. wound up a season marked by success in hard fought games, by an honest loss in a splendidly battled contest. Before the curtain is closed upon basketball we want to pay hommage to the squad. First to the three men who stuck to the squad from the first day of practice to the last whistle at Annapolis — three men who deserve great credit for the fine way they gave their time and services for the development of their teamates — gave it unstintingly and whole heartedly — " Bob " Fuchs ' " Bill " Wash- burn, and " Ches " Carter — to you goes the appreciation of the student body for .making it possible for A. U. to turn out the team it did. Bob will receive his letter this spring for his work and he well deserves it. Bill, also our manager, will be rewarded signifying his post. Carter will receive the greatest reward of all — the whole-hearted admiration from the school for his cooperation to the team and the coach. Recall now the five men as they appeared to the experts at the beginning of the season. Contrast that picture with the team as they are now and you receive a perspective of Growth and Development. A red-headed boy, who over night, was forced to assume the responsibility of leadership has made good. Red has been the driving power of the team ; and the leading scorer. His indomitable spirit and heady playing made him the hero of the season. In defeat or victory, he of the flaming top was the leader on the floor. And when that student body gives the long A. U. for Red — it will be a thunderous cheer coming from their hearts — a tribute to an excellent basketball player. " Hoke ' s " speed was his greatest asset when he started — and he used that speeil to all of its advantages. Heaven help the opponent who let Hoke get an inch ahead of him ! The boy who stopped Oliver, Twardowitz, and Cosgrove upset the pre-season forecast aplenty. To the " barefoot boy " from Tennessee belongs the credit due to a magnificent defensive player. " Osca " kept the Eagles in the running by his ability to get that ball off the backboard all the time. Disregarding the dope — " Osca " went out to learn basketball and the spirit of the mountaineer won out. Colison really fooled them all. The high-scorer and feature player in the C. U. game, a consistent, cool player; a necessary cog in a team as shown by the Gallaudet game, Colison has developed into an agressive, clever ball player. [ohnny Woods proves that basketball players are not made in high school — they develop in college. John is a hard playing, " shootin ' fool, " who collects his points in every game and who ran wild in the Gallaudet rout. Coach Young has accomplished a seemingly impossible task. From the very outset he was enthused by the spirit of his proteges and gave his best to develop them into a team, worthy of A. U. ' s name. He took five mediocre players ; diag- nosed the flaws in each, worked to correct these flaws; inaugurated a new style of attack; and turned out a team that functioned with a high degree of coopera- tion and effectiveness. " Brig " was never downcast, never discouraged, and by reason of his optimism inspired the team with much of his own fighting quali- ties. Every man in the squad swears by " Brig " — he has their ardent support, and the approval of the school — and no coach has more. By every conceivable viewpoint, this season was a success. But best of all, the development of a group of average players to a highly efficient, fighting quin- tet, was the inspiring result of this year. The factors that contributed to tbi achievement are excellent coaching, a deep-rooted desire on the part of the players to make good, a fighting spirit characteristic of A. U., and the full-fledged sup- port of the student body. With that same combination on hand next year and this season as a background of experience, hopes cannot go too high in expecting the best season A. U. ever had. basketball Squad Walter Young Coach William Washburn Manager Capt.
