To this end, we have endeavored to chronicle this vear of achievement by the sybolism of Hellas — that spirit which is so akin to our life in college — which represents the academic yearnino for - knowledge — the spirit of brotherhood — the a rchitectural con- cept — and not the least, the Olympian ideal of sports Dean George Benjamin Woods whose strength of personality and ceaseless followind of an ideal of education have budded the College of Liberal Arts from the first beoinnincjs to its present position, we of the Junior Class dedicate this AUCOLA CONTENTS College Campus Administration Classes Senior Junior Sophomore % •w " h i • -o o» ®M „ucius Charles Clark, B.

Whatever it has set its hand to accomplish has been done, either by weight of diplomacy or of sheer noise. It began its notable career by defying successfully the Freshman rules, but that did not prevent it from trying to enforce them on another class later. Having gained their point they proceeded to astonish the rest of the college by the mag- nificence of their dance, which was the first one to be given in the dining room of the Women ' s Residence Hall. Filled with a laudable desire in their sophomore year again to do something never done before, they produced with great success " Nice Coin ' , " the one and only musical comedy that A. U. has witnessed, and set the college singing " Days That We Treasure " with great gusto. Their third year witnessed the novel " Good News " dance, and a Junior Prom which was the first to be given without a banquet attached, ami the decorations of which excelled all former efforts. The senior dance harkened back to the " Days That We Treasure, " and was reminiscent of all that had gone before. This year the class turned athletic, and clinched the Tompkins Basketball Trophy by turning in its third inter-class bas- ketball championship. The Class of 1931 made its last triumphant gesture in its class gift, an artistic stone walk across the campus from Hurst Hall to Battelle Memorial, thus leaving, if not their footprints on the sands of time, at least a place for the foot- prints of others. MM 34 CLAIR ALTLAND HARRISBUR(i, PENNSYLVANIA Class Treasurer 3; Aucoxa Staff 3; French Club 1, 2 3 4 Vice-President 4; Cdee Club 3, 4; Composer, Sophomore Musical Comedy 2; Junior Prom Committee 3. Clair is pointed out with pride to visitors as A. U. ' s musical genius. As author of the musical comedy Nice Gom ' he is looked upon with awe. Evidently being musical doesn ' t prevent him from being practical, for he- was treasurer of his class in his junior year. He was a main prop of the French Club for three years, and a member of the Aucola staff as a junior. Clair haun ts Hurst Hall at odd hours and extracts melodies from unmeledicus pianos. S.

' 3 " ' Secretary 3; Omicron Epsilon Pi 2, 3, 4, President 4; Oxford Fellowship 2, 3; Story, Musical Comedy 2. Carlton is a valued member of nearly every club mi the campus. He is an aesthetic young man who does his best to live down the Christian name of Samuel. As the author of the story of Nice Coin ' he shares the awe with Clair Atland. Carlton is far from an impractical visionary, since he efficiently managed and took care of the finances of the Glee Club. He fully realizes the importance of being earnest. DOROTHEA BELZ EAST FALLS CHURCH. VIRGINIA Varsity Hockey 1, 2; Class Hocke 2, 3; A Club 3, 4, Vice-President 4 Club 1, 2, President 2; Class Honor 1, 2, 3, 4; Class French Club 1, 1, 2, 3, 4. Bobbie is A. U. ' s original " little girl " with curly hair, wide blue eyes and a charming quiet smile. One would never think to look at her that she is a very athletic young lady, equally at home on hockey field, on the basketball court, and behind the volleyball net. As vice- president of the A Club she is in every movement to further girls ' athletics on the campus. Besides this she is a consistent honor student. B1B1 35 J. ELMER BENSON FREDERICK JUNCTION, MARYLAND Oxford Fellowship 2, 3, 4, Vice-President 3, Treasurer 4. Benson is chiefly known around the campus for the ahruptness with which he arrives and departs in his Ford, or whatever automobile he may at the moment have. Sharing one ' s time with a charge and American University does make one hurry, you know. Both in his Junior and Senior years, he has held offices in the Oxford Fellowship. CALVIN FRANCIS BROWN TAKOMA PARK. MARYLAND Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4; Librarian 2; Manager 3, 4. Cal is the exponent of modern music as blared forth by the saxophone. He was for the last two years the head of the Orchestra and an earnest devour of music. His saxophone solos have led American University to the opinion that that much maligned instrument is not so bad as it sounds. The orchestra without Cal is un- thinkable.

Ches Carter and Warren Colison seem to run Alpha Theta Phi between them, for both have been president and treasurer, and while one was vice-president the other was secretary. Who can beat that for a record? Ches is an athletic sort of fellow, for besides playing basketball, he is one of A. U. ' s tennis stars. Ches takes an active interest in art.

Orrie is one to whom all turn when something is to be done. As the Big Sister Chairman she endeared herself to the new girls and helped them to become real college students. Her acting in dramat is always one of the treats of the year, and as a member of the Student Council she is a factor in all things for stu- dent good. -MARY H. CLINE NORWALK, OHIO Swagger 3. 4, President 4; Class Vice-President 4; Uramat 3. 4; Glee Club 3, 4, President 4; Class Honors 4. Mary C line is a quiet young woman whose tuneful voice is seldom heard except in Glee Club or Dramat. As a member of Swagger and its president she i- prom inent socially on the campus. Mary seems to run to president for she is likewise the head of the glee club and the vice-president of her class. 011 [My 37 E. WARREN COLISON WASHINGTON, 1J. C.

As a talented memlier of the French Club he is in demand to play heroes, villains, irate fathers, and the like. He has been successively secre- tary, treasurer, and president of Alpha Theta Phi. He is one of A. U. ' s star basketball players and lends the weight of his mature judgment to the Student Council. NORMAN S.

As business manager of both Eagle and Aucola while a Junior he aided them smoothly over financial difficulties. As Student Comptroller and member of the Student Council he holds the student purse strings and on the side is class treasurer. In his lighter moments he sings in the Glee Club.

Eaylc Staff, Circulation Manager 2, Assistant Editor 3, Editor 4; Debate 2. 3. 4, Business Manager 4; Glee Club 1, 2, Business Manager 2; French Club 1, 2, President 1; Honor Roll 1. Roger is the owner of a car that has to be parked on a hill in order to start, but Roger doesn ' t take after his car. He is a self-made man, having risen from circu- lation manager, to assistant editor, to editor of the Eagle. He is responsible for the French Club, having organized it and been its first president. He first sang in the Glee Club and then transferred his activities to debate. [My 38 BLAKE B. ESPEY WASHINGTON, I). C.

The secret is out. Blake is the original Jack of bean- stalk fame. Whether he will find the princess at the top is conjecture; he found the presidency of the junior and senior classes at the bottom. Lately he has been running to dramatic villains, but on the other hand he was president of the poetry club. He seems likely to remain that thing so dear to every woman ' s heart an enigma.

Barbara Evans is one of the quietest people on the campus. Her hockey playing is par excellence and her international relations above reproach. She is an active member of campus, clubs, social and scholastic notably Alpha Chi, and a consistent honor student. SARAH FRANCES FINCH KK BATTERY PARK, MARYLAND Art Staff Auc 3; Fr Frances is the lady with no illusions. She is sensible of the fact that some people like her for her life savers and others because she listens politely to their woes. We suggest that she turn temperamental artist and have a few woes of her own. " Time is but the stream she goes a-fishing in " and though she is a very competent angler, she has never yet managed to land an English theme in on time. Strangely enough she makes us all want to go fishing with her.

Rose is a yellow-haired miss with a strange attach- ment to books of educational psychology. One might almost suspect her of taking this college business ser- iously. At any rate, she takes sports seriously, for she plays volleyball, basketball, and soccer. It is rumored that she was mistaken for a yellow canary in the fam- ous sophomore musical comedy. Syr EDITH GAYLORD WASHINGTON, D. C. ersity, 1, 2; University of Rocheste Edith is one of the campus mysteries, but she man- ages to make us pat ourselves on the back when we think that after going to two New York Universities she likes American U. Although she hasn ' t been here long enough to become very active in college life, we feel sure that we are the ones who are losing because of it. DOROTHY L.

I lot is one of those quiet persons that it is awfully hard to get along without. The number of clubs she is in testifies to that. 1 lot rules the Women ' s Government Association with one iron hand and probably takes the minutes of the Swagger Club with the other. Like little Tommy Tucker, she sings — for the Glee Club. EllEi] [My 40 LOUISE GOLDENBl RG WASHINGTON, I). C. Class Hockey 1. 2, 3. 4; Class Soccer I, 2, 3; Class Basketball .

Her pet hobby is traveling, and her next pet hobby is golf but unlike so many people. Louise never botes others with anec- dotes, or holes in one. Maybe her work in psychology lias taught her wisdom that others get only by force. KATHRYN G.

Kay is always busy. Her activities are social and scholastic. She is a charter member of the Brahmins, on the debate squad, on the Eagle, and as proctor of the Women ' s Government Association is in touch with all phases of Dorm life. LAWRENCE HETRICK HARRIS IJURC, PENNSYLVANIA Larry spends his days in the lab wearing a gray smock in the hope that some day a passing visitor will say " Who is that young scientist? " We have a feeling that some day he will get his wish. He is given to boiling things in lab and perfuming Hurst Hall. Larry has played for four years on class basketball teams and is the bane of the Junior team ' s existence.

Mary Liz is a versatile young woman. She plays basketball, volleyball, hockey, and the piano — all equally well. She graduated from a mere performer in the girl ' s Glee Club to its accompanist, and from there to greater heights as the accompanist of the men ' s Glee Club. She is not known as the sister of Lawrence Het- rick, nor is lie known as ihe lirother of Mary Liz. It is a rare accomplishment. ETHEL VYYN HINE WASHINGTON, I).

She speaks with force and incontestable logic on all subjects and then answers to the nickname of " Bumphs.

Helen is a spiritual looking young woman who plays hockey, basketball, volleyball, and soccer with equal ef- ficiency. She dipped her fingers in ink while a sopho- more and took the minutes of the class, and then in her junior year helped circulate the Aucola. In spite of all these activities she found time to be in Dramat and be lyrical in the sophomore musical comedy. She is in- terested in things Georgian. H1B1 42 L.

She started her college career under auspi- cious circumstances by joining the Brecky Club, hut like so many others, got lost by the wayside, Although not lost in Swaggers she seems in a lair way to being swamped by her duties. lily JUSTINE CROSSEK CLEVELAND, OHIO Justine was cut out to be a congressman ' s daughter. She is interested in American History, campaigning, and probably careers for women. She very nonchalantly drives a big car with a Congressional sign on it, and it is rumored that she is one of the few women who wouldn ' t get lost in the Capitol. Ell 10 53 jap [sty 54 The Class of 1932 In the tall of 1928, the present Juniors made their first appearance on the campus, a group of pampered in fants sadly in need of a nurse. Instead, they re- ceived the gentle administrations of the Gosling Court. Thus stimulated toward development into reasoning adults, the class wandered through the first year, with the usual mishaps and pleasures of childhood. No longer infants, the class in 1929 entered that period of youthful exuber- ance which corresponds roughly to the Boy Scout Age. With added knowledge of the facts of college life, they successfully passed through the voice-changing stage, and became a little less gawky, a trifle more urbane. Returning last fall, the class suddenly realized that college life was half over. Matured, but not yet weighed down by the dignity and necessity for grade points of the Senior, the Juniors set forth. Although they took an active part in all campus affairs, the two distinctively Junior functions, putting out the AucoLA and putting on the Prom, were the chief interests of the class. The results speak for themselves. E1E1 Hty 56 RUTH L. BELL WASHINGTON, I). C. George Washington University, 1, 2; Dramatics, 3. AUDREY L. BELT WASHINGTON, I). C.

We have been some time learning to think of our- selves as prospective juniors, seniors, and college graduates, for the freshman spirit, particularly as we had it, un- diminished by upperclass restraint, is a Peter Pan spirit which is perpetually of today. But we are at last acquiring the forward look. It would hardly be exact to accuse us of being serious- minded yet. but anyone who had observed our freshman class meetings would find a hopeful contrast in attending those of our sophomore year. There are no riots, and since everyone is so anxious to continue to his next class, President Hoover (yes, we have one too) always dismisses us promptly. Among the gala occasions early in the year was our Field Day with the downtrodden freshmen. Although the greencapped boys had a fatal victorious pull in the Tug-of-War, they were soundly defeated in soccer; and the girls ' hockey game ran an extra per- iod, which yielded a grim victory for the sophomore stick- swingers. November first is memorable as the date of our Hallowe ' en dance. At that time we offered the innovation of a colored or- chestra, the strains from which were as weird as the mural deco- rations of humpy black cats and hooked-nosed witches. In addition to supplying the cream of A. U. athletes, Eagle reporters, and participants in the other activities, the Sophomore class leads the campus in its number of honor students. The officers of the Sophomore Class are: President, Ken- neth Hoover; Vice-President, Katherine Renter; Secretary, Lois Spencer; Treasurer, Alan Blanchard. 73 Class of 1933 Beatrice Adams Phyllis Adelman Henry Backenstoss Ruth Belden Alan J.

In a few- short weeks, however, we felt that we had been here always. The get-together parties, the Rig Brother and Sister party, and the pep meetings made us realize the spirit of cooperation and " togetherness " which prevails at A. U., and we soon settled down to our studies and various activities. Our one " bug-bear " was Freshman rules, and harder than English, Chemistry, or French was to remember not to use the cross-walk and to wear dinks and berets. However, the Freshman victory in the annual tug-of-war lifted the ban against the cross-walk, and very soon all rules were abolished. The boys of the class of ' 34 were among those who were the first to occupy the new dormitory, and the freshman class also witnessed the first interfraternity prom, the organization of the Western Club, and the establishment of the new system of giv- ing grades. Resolved to assure the upper classes that we were capable of carrying on the college traditions, we loaned our talents to our individual interests, and the Freshman Class became well repre- sented in the Men ' s and Women ' s Glee Clubs, the orchestra, dramatics, and athletics. Four members of the class played on the football team, some on the basketball team, and in a group of plays presented early in the year, several parts were taken by freshmen. A Freshman debate squad was organized and an at- tempt made to start a college band, and the Freshmen Valentine Dance provided an enjoyable evening. At the end of the first semester in February, it was announced that five freshmen had made the honor roll. As we pass from freshmen to sophomores we appreciate more and more the duties which lie before us, and we will do our ut most to make the class of ' 34 worthy of American University and the high standard upon which she is built. The class elected as its officers: William Anderson, Pres- ident, First Semester; Clara Tate, Vice-President, First Semes- ter; President, Second Semester; Jane Rishop, Secretary; and Hugh Tate, Treasurer, First Semester. SMM H1B1 la y X- 1 1 T L E Gl 1 y i — x- i If competition in sport does not produce results that are valuable from an educational point of view, then such competition is out of place in a college. The lowering of eligibility standards, the participation of tramp athletes in all branches of sport, unnecessarily long absence from classes when long trips are taken, special inducements to men of exceptional athletic ability, are some of the evils that develop unless extreme care is taken. It must be kept rigidly in mind at all times that the athletic department is part, and an essential part, of an EDUCA- TIONAL INSTITUTION. To maintain the whole system on such a plane is no small task with the pres- sure that is brought from many sources. We must meet those colleges in sport whose standards and ideals are more nearly like our own, who maintain the same standards of scholarship, who have the same attitude towards recruiting, and toward the relationship of the athletic system to the educational program of the college. In this way alone may clean, healthy, wholesome rivalries be developed. We must use care here at American University to avoid the known dangers of intercollegiate sport. We must realize that even though we are a small college, meeting teams in our class, we are not denied the benefits that are to be de- rived from sport. In the final analysis, the size of the athlete has very little to do with the benefits. The man of small ability can reflect just as much credit on his institution. The ability to forget self for the benefit of the team, the self-control that is necessary in a hotly contested game, the will that drives one to do more than he himself thought he could do when the occasion demands, the ability to win like a gentleman and lose the same way, the qualities of leadership which often show up in those whom we least suspected to possess them, the ability to sacrifice selfish desires for the good of the organization — all these are benefits to be desired and are not limited to any certain type of individual. These are the benefits that are possible for the men who play on the teams of American University. — Walter H. Young.

Building on the foundations that have been laid in the first few years of in- tercollegiate competition, teams wearing the Orange and Blue of American University should forge ahead until they are even more definitely recognized as a factor in the world of sports. In football, this college has never enjoyed the laure ls of a really successful season. In five years it has not been possible to build a triumphant team in an institution of this size, particularly since the college does not approve scholarship or other inducements for athletes. But the college is growing, and the squads of the future will not number a mere twenty or less. The present tendency in the collegiate world is a reaction against too great over-emphasis in football ; this will be another factor that will help the Eagles soon to gain a respected place in the football firmament. With the stadium completed, thereby providing an adequate place for practice, all things together should work toward a brilliant football future. In basketball, the Eagles have made good records already. The development of this sport will undoubtedly continue. Other sports — tennis, golf, baseball, track, and swimming, all of which have been little developed as yet — are bound to come into importance within a few more years. A broader program will be made possible as the student body increases, and the collegiate athletic department gets on a firmer basis. What lies ahead for Eagle sports? Today we are just on the threshold of achievements that will one day place the name of American University high in local and national athletics. Hty 83 Football Season Am summary of the 1930 football campaign necessarily lirings the realization that from the standpoint of games won and points scored, the Eagles did not have a successful season. They triumphed over Shenandoah ami Shepherd, tied High Point, and lost to Gallaudet, Atlantic, St. John ' s, and Catholic. Without attempting to make any excuses for a had season, it is only fair to recall that the two worst defeats were administered to a greatly weakened team by the two strongest opponents on the schedule. Six members of the regular eleven were out of the St. John ' s game at one time or another, five of them for the entire second half. In the struggle against Catholic University, five first string men were unable to take part. The handicap of injuries was a great factor in the losses sustained; most of the " breaks " that the squad received were in the form of fractures. A review of the season brings to mind Hashes of greatness that are all too easily forgot- ten when the uniforms have been put away and the points have all been added — a line that held in more than one tight place — a forward passing attack that clicked so well that even a winning opponent gasped — touchdowns pushed over in the last few minutes, averting defeat in one instance and a coat of whitewash in the other. Tribute must be paid to " Frosty " Diehl, selected for the fullback berth on the mythical All-District team picked by the Post; to George Borsari, midget Frosh quarterback who ran the team with precision and completed his own runs with the same skill; to Jarvis, Johnson, and Levin, who starred until the time of their injuries; to the splendid fighting spirit of the whole squad. This season will never be recorded as any great triumph for American University, but it was not so bad as the figures would indicate. New stars were developed out of a squad that was hard hit by graduation ; the team struggled valiantly under the handicaps of injuries, an inadequate practice field, and more powerful opponents. Coach Young is not dis- couraged, but sees better days ahead for Eagle teams built on the foundations of these first few days. 1 1 KKY MOFFETT Assistant Manager Mm 84 SCHEDULE Sept. 21— American University .... 14 Shenandoah 12 I liehl, Captain Oct. 4— American University 6 Shepherd Parke, Captain Oct. 11— American University 6 Gallaudet 18 Johnson, Captain Lambert, Captain Oct. 18— American University 6 High Point 6 Lambert, Captain Oct. 25— American University Atlantic Univ 31 Levin, Captain Nov. 1— American University 6 St. John ' s 59 Liehl, Captain Nov. 8— American University Catholic Univ 60 Olsen, Captain PLAYERS BORSARI Bowers Ch WES Clark 1 ihxri DlEHL ESPER FOLSTON FUCHSLE Hendricks Hoover Tarvis Johnson, F.

Starting the struggle with a series of brilliant plays by Borsari and Diehl that resulted in a touchdown within the first five minutes, the Eagles continued to outplay the Valleymen during all of the first half. The whistle for the end of this frame found the score 7-0, Johnson ' s first boot having added the extra point. The second half was begun with a vigorous drive by the visitors, who were able to push the ball over but failed to make the kick. The Eagles retaliated in the final period, with Borsari and Diehl again appearing as masters of the field, reaching the coveted stripe in six rushes, with much aid from the successful working of a triple-pass play. In the last few minutes of the game, Tinney emerged as Shenandoah ' s hero for the day, romping down the field for seventy yards and six more points.

Shortly after the kick-off, a fifteen-yard pass, Diehl to Borsari, and a ten-yard run by the latter, placed the Eagles in scoring position, and before the quarter was half over, suc- cessive runs by the same two backs pushed the ball past the last white line. Another threat to score followed, but the ball was lost on downs after two long gains by Fuchsle and a pass by Diehl had carried the pigskin to the ten-yard line. An exchange of punts followed, neither team threatening to score during the rest of the half. A determined thrust by Shepherd carried the ball to the eight-yard line at the opening of the second stanza, but the line rallied and successfully withstood the onslaught. Injuries featured the remainder of the game. Jarvis, end, and Hendrick, tackle, starred in the Eagle defensive play. El El Mm 87 •. •- ' FoLSTON AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 6— GALLAUDET COLLEGE 18 The first defeat of the season was suffered by the Eagles at the hands of Gallaudet ; hut the team played good football throughout the game, making eleven first downs against twelve for the winners. The Silents, conceded to have the advantage, both in weight and experience, had a tough victory. Although they made a touchdown in each one of the first three periods, they failed to down the spirit of the fighting Methodists, who scored in the final period after Lambert had snagged a Gallaudet pass. Another example of the Eagle ' s invincible fight was shown when the line stiffened and held Gallaudet for four downs on the one-foot line. For the Eagles, Diehl and Borsari showed up well on both offense and defense. Acting Captain Fred Johnson, whose consistent defensive play was a strong factor in the opposition provided by the oungites, received the tough luck of the afternoon when in the final period he suffered injuries which kept him on the bench for the remainder of the season. H1E1 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 6— HIGH POINT COLLEGE 6 Hitting the trail to the sunny southland, Coach Young ' s proteges visited High Point, North Carolina, and came home after playing a bitterly contested game which ended in a 6-6 tie. The first half was a stiff, even battle, with brilliant defensive play by the linemen re- pulsing all threats at scoring by either team. The score at the end of this frame was 0-0. In the third quarter, a thirty-five-yard pass by Ludwig gave the Panthers a six-point ad- vantage. Undaunted by this score, Diehl, Parke, and Borsari unleashed a powerful drive which resulted in the final touchdown of the game. The game was marred by numerous penalties and fumbles, hut these were distributed between the contestants. Although their own passing game was not up to what it should have been, the Eagles showed a strong defense against the aerial attack of the Panthers, whose passers were almost smothered except for two times when Ludwig ' s long tosses dropped into waiting arms. The ends, Jarvis and Larson, performed with consistent brilliance, so that attempted end runs seldom passed the line of scrimmage. B1B1 Hty m 89 Olsen AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 0— ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY 31 Outplayed and lacking the " touchdown punch, " the Eagles returned from their encounter with the seadogs of Atlantic University with their plumage ruffled by a 31-0 defeat. The first quarter was the only one that remained scoreless, the sailors scoring twelve points in each of the second and third quarters, and seven points in the final frame. The Eagles made one real threat to score in the third quarter, a pass, Diehl to Clark, landing the hall on the seven-yard line. The advantage was lost, however, the hall being yielded on downs. The play of Larson at left end made him the defensive star of the game for the Eagles. Jarvis also played a strong defensive game at end until he suffered a fractured collar bone in the second period. Atlantic University completed two passes, while American University completed five, but the former made fifteen first downs to the Eagles ' three. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 6— ST. JOHN ' S 59 Bucking up against a powerful football machine, and riddled by leg injuries, the Eagles found themselves on the short end of a 59-6 score at the close of the clash in historic old Annapolis. Although a brilliant second period really saved them from a coat of unadulterated white- B1B1 H0 90 wash, the Methodist warriors never had a chance. The Johnnies scored furiously from the beginning of the game, ripping the lighter Eagle line to shreds. The lone A. U. score came as a result of a pass, Oieh] to Fuchsle, which gave the Eagles a first down on the three-yard line. Parke squeezed across for the six points. The A. U. passing attack functioned most successfully in this contest, toss after toss landing in the arms of a waiting Eagle. Injuries kept Johnson and Jarvis from taking part at all, and Borsari, Diehl, Fuchsle, and Levin were able to render services for only a short time. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 0— CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY 60 With five first string men out of the entire game, the Eagles provided little opposition to the Cardinals of Catholic University, who romped down the field for nine touchdowns and a total of sixty points. The substitutes played valiantly but vainly against a team that was definitely out of their class. Long punts from the toe of Bill Fuchsle and gains by George Borsari were the few lightening touches for Eagle rooters. SLANCHARD MoFFF.TT Underwood Ell [ity 91 Basketball Season A glance at the past season on the court shows ten victories ( counting the opener with the alumni ) and six defeats, a record which, though it is not impos- ing, is at the same time comfortably ahead of an even break. Coach Walter Young ' s proteges performed capably, and if they did not equal the best efforts of some other seasons, nevertheless they had a successful year. The first string five — Colison, Olsen, Sells, Woods, and Dick, were primarily a good team, not a collection of individuals attempting to be stars, but five men functioning as a well-oiled machine. The essential thing, teamwork, was evident in every game. Individually, Sells was perhaps the most outstanding, but let it tit- repeated, this was not a team of stars, but an all-star team — and there is a big difference. Perhaps the most stirring clash of the campaign was the struggle at An- napolis, when by only the narrowest of margins did the Eagles fail to upset the dope and sink the Navy. There were many other moments, however, such as the second half of the early-season clash with Gallaudet, which provided the fans with some fine basketball. It was an interesting schedule, with something doing most of the time.

Oscar Sells, tall center, tallied six goals from the court and four foul shots, to lead the scoring for the evening, and his all-arc mud play was the feature of the contest. Coach Young used practically his whole squad in the game, and Leone] Dick, Shakesperean left guard, ran up seven points during his participa- tion in the fray, and gave promise of being a potent factor in future contests. The presence of the first A. U. band added enthusiasm to the sidelines, and altogether, the evening was recorded as a successful curtain raiser. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 23— GALLVUl ET 21 Oscar Sells grabbed a fast pass and sank it through the cords an instant before the final whistle, and thus broke up a 21-21 tie and gave the Eagles the second contest of the year by the narrow margin of two points. The game was played on the home court and was hotly contested from start to finish, with neither Gallaudet or American ever having a moment ' s breathing spell. Both teams were guarding closely, and the result was in doubt again and again, two Gallaudet rallies, one in each half, threatening to swing the decision to their favor. Sells, Dick, and Colison were the individual stars of the game, scoring eighteen of the twenty-three points for American University. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 18— DUQUESNE i2 Although they outscored their opponents in the last half, the Eagles ' rally came too late to avert a defeat by Duquesne in the third tilt of the season, played at home on January 13th. Olsen and Sells, the main cogs in the attack made by the wearers of the Orange and Blue, ran up ten points between them, and received noble assistance from Warren Colison, but the struggle was vain against the formidable array of points rolled up by the visitors in the opening stanza. Larson, Washburn, and Diehl, who relieved the regulars, showed up well during their stay in the game. ap lly 94 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 50— MARYLAND STATE NORMAL 18 Playing their first game on a foreign court, the A. U. basketeers repeated their previous victory over the school teachers from Maryland State Normal School. It was a day of rest for the regulars, who appeared for about one quarter of the game, and then retired. The two skyscraping centers, Sells and Larson, both had their innings, and managed to chalk up ten points apiece, enough to have beaten the opposing team without assistance. The rest of the squad did not take life too easy, however, and the game ended with a complete triumph for the visiting Wesley Heighters. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 30— CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY 19 Entering a cool, steady basketball team against what turned out to a combination wrest- ling, boxing, track, and basketball squad, the Eagles hiked across the city on January 19th, and came home with the scalp of the Catholic Uni versity Cardinals. The contest, which began much like any other game, but included two fights and a near riot before it was ended, was marred from beginning to end by the " fighting " spirit displayed by members of the C. LI. team. Assaults and battery were attempted by some members of the home team, and so obscured the real play of the evening, that spectators almost forgot that the Eagles were playing a clever game and were master of every situation, including the unscheduled boxing matches. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 26— ELON COLLEGE 20 Fighting every inch of the way, the American Five showed superior floorwork and doped out a system to successfully cope with a defense different from any displayed on the local court this season, and the result was a victory over the Carolinians from Elon College. Taking the lead at the very start, the Eagles relinquished it only fur a brief instant in the middle of the first half, and after that remained in the lead steadily. Johnny Woods was high scorer for the contest, five tosses from the court giving him a three-point advantage over Leonel Dick, who made two tosses and three foul shots. BID [My 95 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 26— VIRGINIA MEDICAL COLLEGE 24 The fourth victory in a row was scored by the Eagles, playing against the Medicos of Virginia at Richmond. They ran up a substantial lead in the first frame of the fray, but a furious rally by the home team in the latter half made it necessary for " Red " Olsen to come through in the last seconds of the game and save the situation. He scored three points, a toss from the floor, and a free throw from the little white stripe, and as a result, the Eagles carried off the honors with just one basket to spare. Johnny Woods was high scorer, with eleven points. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 2(1— HAMPDEN-SIDNEY 34 After three men were ejected by the foul route, the Eagles saw a chance of victory fad- ing away, and the final score of the second game of a two-game trip to Virginia was 34-20. Although Dick scored eight points and Colison made five, their combined efforts were not enough to overcome the lead rolled up in the first half by the Virginians. The A. U. five did much better work in the second frame than in the first, but the ejection of Sells, Olsen, and Dick made victory far beyond their grasp. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 21— CARNEGIE TECH 31 " The best team in the history of Carnegie Tech " proved too strong for the ambitious Eagles, who invaded the Pittsburgh region for a game, but lost by ten points, in spite of a last half onslaught that gave them a slight edge over the Plaids for the last twenty minutes of play. Carnegie started the game with a rush, and rolled up a substantial margin that was never seriously threatened by the Eagles. Sells, with nine points to his credit, led his team- males in scoring, and came within one point of scoring honors for the fray. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 37— DAYIS-ELK1NS 50 The Scarlet Hurricane of Davis-Elkins proved invincible against the visiting A. L ' .-ites, in spite " I their valiant stand, and maintained a comfortable lead after the very first moments of the struggle. The result was never in doubt, although each team did a great deal of scoring. Olsen and Colison showed up best for the Washingtonians, with nine ami eight points respectively. The loss of Oscar Sells for part of the game was keenly felt by the Eagles. 10 96 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 42— SALEM COLLEGE 25 Led by the barefoot boy from Tennessee, Oscar Sells, the Eagles crashed back into the win column by taking the last game of the week-end jaunt, 42-25. Starting to run up the markers from the very first, the comfort of a 20-8 lead eased the spirits of the visitors at the half. The second period was much like the first, with several substitutes in action. Sell ' s work was aided by the precision of Colison, who shot four from the floor and made two points from inside the circle. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 25— NAVAL ACADEMY 30 " The must thrilling game of the season " sums up the struggle between the Eagles and the admittedly much more powerful team called the Navy. Rushing the midshipmen off their feet in the first half, the score was 16-5 at the half, with no amount of work by the future sea-dogs able to stem the efforts of Colison and Dick. The second half told a different story, however. " Red " Olsen, whose careful guarding had been a feature, was removed on fouls, and then the Navy offensive got under way, and this time nothing could stop them. The final whistle found the losers trying desperately but vainly to rally and win. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 35— PENNSYLVANIA MILITARY COLLEGE i2 The team that all but sank the Navy found less difficulty in a contest with the Penn Cadets, and although the second frame was more closely contested than the first, had little real difficulty in defeating them, 38-52. Olsen and Sells starred on the Eagle offensive, though Woods and Dick were not far behind in the scoring. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 16— ST. JOHN ' S COLLEGE 17 In a close game on the Annapolis court, the Eagles dropped the next to final game of the season by the narrow margin of one point. Leonel Dick was the high scorer for the team, which was not functioning up to its usual standard. The contest was marked by close guarding, and ended with a sensational one-hand shot by MacCartee that gave the decision to the home team. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 50— VIRGINIA MEDICAL COLLEGE 30 The curtain was rung down on the 1931 season with an easy victory over Virginia Medical College. There were few, if any, stirring moments in the clash, in which every A. U. substitute had an opportunity to display his ability. Little Johnny Williams closed the season with a tally which capped the half-century point. This was the last game for three members of the squad and the manager, all of whom graduate in June. Colison, Carter, Levin, and Jimmy fohnson, will all be mi rd from the gi lines next year. lily 07 1 — ' n ' — ' n ' — ' n 1 — ' n ' — ' n ' — ' n ' — ' n ' — ' n ' — ' n 1 — ' Tennis hi the spring of 1930, the American University Tennis Team engaged in only two matches, both of them with Catholic University.

The program this year has been a particularly ambitious one. Starting in the early fall with the field day events be- tween the Freshman and Sophomore classes, the program continued throughout the winter with the stress on Inter- class Basketball, which is at this time the leading interclass sport. A foul-shooting contest concluded the basketball court season. Volleyball followed basketball in the college gymnasium, and the other late winter competition was bowl- ing on alleys in the city. This spring sees the third kittenball season under way, with the interest running unusually high. In the campaign three years ago the Class of 1932 emerged victorious, and last year the Class of 1933 was the winner. Intramural Tennis is also on the spring card, the new courts giving added impetus to this sport, and Coach Walter H. Young rounds out his intramural plans with the inauguration of regular Intramural Horseshoes. HO too Women ' s Athletics REVIEW OF THE SEASON THLETIC competition for women at American University :as taken the form of inter-class tournaments in the major sports — hockey, basketball, volleyball, and soccer. This tournament, in each case, is followed by a varsity color team game at the end of each season. The women in the college are divided into two groups, orange and blue, at the Annual Color Ceremony in the fall, and from these two all-college groups the color teams are chosen. In hockey, this fall, the Seniors won the inter- class championship and the Orange Varsity team won the varsity color championship. Several of the women enjoyed participation in the minor sports — archery, swimming, and tennis, in which various forms of competition are held. In addition to the intra-mural games, American University par- ticipated in a Sports Day with George Washington University in the fall. This was held on the Ellipse in Potomac Park and the com- petition took place by classes in hockey and tennis and individual in archery. American University was successful in hockey and archery, but lost in tennis. However, the afternoon was a decided success and proved a congenial way of competing with each other instead of against each other. Another Sports Day is being planned for the 25th of April with other colleges. For the success of the various athletic events, credit is due to the " A " Club, which is composed of those women who have won their A ' s in athletics. A ' s are awarded by a point system, points being given for being a member of a class team, for hiking, for extra hours of exercise, for keeping health charts, for attendance, and for receiving A in Physical Education. This club elects class managers in the various sports, schedules games, and arranges for the Sports Days and the Annual Banquet. It also has charge of the Annual Color Ceremony in the fall, which takes place in the woods of our campus and includes a wiener roast followed by skits by the classes and a tug-of-war between the new members of the ( range and Blue camps. This year the " A " Club added a winter hike to its program, and Rock Creek Park was the destination where a steak roast was greatly enjoyed by the hikers. In the spring, a Treasure Hunt is planned. Each year new events have been added, and it is hoped, as the col- lege grows, that more activities will be introduced so that even- woman may find satisfaction in her favorite form of recreation. ■ — Dorothy Wulf.

U. so that the same interest would still be accorded athletics as in the days of intercollegiate sports. The " A " Club was the result of this inspiration. Conceived in the minds of its originators as a reward to those who had received even the first part of the three-fold letter, and dedicated to those ideals of athletics that are must lieneficial as well as most interesting to the college woman, it began its career with the co- operation of Miss Wulf in 1929-30. The annual Color Choosing Ceremony was forthwith inaugurated. Thus all the women in college are divided into either orantjt- r blue, and the end of each sport-season is climaxed by a game between the best players of each color, the nearest approach we have to Varsity. In our first year we also originated the annual tradition of a Spring Banquet; on this occasion we welcome our new members and bring the work of the year to a formal close. In spite of obstacles and mistakes we feel that our first year was a success. It launch- ed the " A " Club very firmly upon what we hope is to be worth-while career. We of 1930-31 have valiantly endeavored to live up to the expectations of the originators. We have profited by earlier mistakes; and gathering confidence from past successes, have broadened our program of activities. We realize, of course, that much remains to be done before the goals as set in 1929 can be achieved; but wc feel that the honest effort we have expended on behalf of the " A " Club has not been in vain. The year 1930-31 has been, we are sure, a more successful year than 1929-30; just as we anticipate that the years to come will see even fuller realization of our ideals. We are confident in the knowledge that we have done our bit, and look with assurance to the " A " Club of tomorrow. El El MM 102 Hope Mowbray Putnam Belz Sweet Smith Evans Humphries Finchek Interclass Hockey In what was perhaps the most exciting inter-class hockey tournament ever staged at A. U., the Seniors successfully defended the championship which they won the year before. The Senior team, composed of practically the same members as last year, met stout oppo- sition from the other classes, especially the Sophomores. Indeed, it was only after three games between these two teams that the Seniors finally emerged victorious by the slim margin of one point. In the first game of the season the Seniors defeated the Juniors, 9-2. The first half was a continuous attack by the Seniors on the Junior goal , but during the second half the Juniors rallied and fought their opponents on nearly even terms. The three Sophomore games were very closely contested and very exciting. The Seniors won the first, 5-4, and the Sophs the second, 3-0. A play-off was necessary, and this proved a real thriller with the Seniors winning by a score of 3-2. The line-up of the Senior team was as follows : K. Wing Helen Staples R, Inner Helen Hope Center Ethel Smith L. Inner Barbara Evans L. Wing Virginia Humphries R. Half Margaretta Moore C Half Mary Putnam L. Half Bobbie Belz R. Full Louise Goldenberg L. Full Betty Jacoby Goal Margaret Mowbray Substitutes Mildred Sweet, Frances Fincher At the conclusion of the inter-class hockey season, the first real all-A. U. team was picked. Six Seniors were included on this mythical team. They were Smith, center ; Evans, inner; Putnam and Belz, half-backs; and Jacoby, full-back. Humphries was also picked as a substitute on this team. [My 103 ,1 1 1 1 1 1 llL 1 1, J L ,Ui JzLr iLL El q] A U c D L A 3 1 n n tt Tt 1 In 1 77 TT 1 TT 1 nr All A. U. Hockey Team " Six Seniors Make Mythical Team " so reads the Eagle headline announcing the selec- tion of the 1930 honorary A. U. hockey team. This year the team was picked in rather a unique manner. Three judges, Miss Wulf, Mary Putnam, and Ethel Smith, each inde- pendently, submitted a team to the sport ' s department of the Eagle. Those teams were com- pared and out of them was compiled the all A. U. team. The team was composed of six seniors, three sophomores, one junior, and one fresh- man. Since the seniors were the champions and the sophomores the runners-up of the inter- class tournament, it is only natural that these two teams should provide the majority of players for the all-star team. The line-up was as follows: L. Wing King L. Inner Evans ( enter E. Smith l . Inner Darby K. Wing Staples L. Halfback Belz C. Halfback Putnam R. Halfback Marean I.. Fullback Jacoby Hty 104 Peiece Evans Makean Putnam Humphriei Smith King Martin Interclass Basketball The Senior girls continued their string of wins for the last three years in winning the class basketball championship by defeating the Sophomores in two consecutive games. The Freshmen started out the season with a bang, defeating the Seniors by an 18-15 score. Then the Sophomores beat the Juniors in a one sided tilt. In the following game the Seniors redeemed themselves by defeating the Juniors. The most hotly contested game of the season was fought between the Fresh- men and the Sophomores. At the end of the regulation time the score was tied so that an extra five minutes had to be played, resulting in the defeat of the Freshmen by a score of 30-28. The interclass competition ended with the seniors defeating the sophomores by a score of 28-12, and a second time with a score of 24-11. The season closed with a game between the Orange and Blue teams composed of members from all classes. The Orange team was victorious by a score of 25-22. The new " throw-in " method of putting the ball into play at the center, at the beginning of the game, after a goal is made, was used as an experiment this season. [My 105 RUNDAGE, M. T. LEATHERWOOD SaNFORD Archery Archery has been emphasized on the campus for several years, both because of its historical significance and the interest and athletic advantages the game affords. With the target set up on the hockey field, classes have been organized each fall and spring, and have developed remarkable proficiency. This year marks the commencement of competitive archery for the girls of American University. After the first fall classes had been held under Miss Wulf ' s direction, inter-class contests were held in the form of a half of a Col- umbia Round. Individual scores were kept and those holding the six highest were chosen to form the A. U. team. In October, Genevieve Leatherwood, Elean- or Wold, Anna Mary Sanford, Mary Jeannette Brundage, Virginia Sherier and Alfredda Scobey represented the college in archery in the field day activities with George Washington. This was the first event of this kind undertaken and is intended to be continued in future seasons. H1E1 EDO 106 ANiMtoM 5 M f W. Yule Fisher Editor-in-Chief W.

It has attained this position because of two principles which it has always followed; first, having high standards in all debate work; and second, having forensic relations only with those colleges which are in sympathy with these standards. This policy has given American Uni- versity the opportunity to meet many of the leading colleges of the Country. THE 1931 SEASON The schedule this year has been interesting in many respects. It gave extended trips up North for both the Women ' s and Men ' s teams; also, it afforded an opportunity for the debaters to broadcast; and for the first time, the Freshmen Team visited foreign platforms. QUESTIONS USED Resolved, That the United States should adopt a system of Federal liquor control. Resolved, That the principle of unemployment insurance is sound. Resolved, That chain stores are more beneficial than detrimental to the American public.

The first of these was Dr. Arthur Jackson, 5s t who was appointed the head of the Religion Department in that year. Soon after he began his residence on the campus and became acquainted with the ministerial students, he recognized the need for an organization to promote their ideals. As a result, Dr. Jackson called the men together and formed a club. The second man who came in 1927 transferred as a Senior from Lawrence College. Lawrence College is the home of the Oxford Fellowship, and Randall Penhale came to American L ' niversity with that pioneering spirit about which we had heard so much. So it came about that through Mr. Penhale, the club that Dr. Jackson was so instrumental in organizing became in the spring of 1928 a chapter of the National xford Fellowship. That year there were twenty student members, with Dr. Jackson as faculty adviser. Dr. Jackson is still the faculty adviser, and among those who were in this original group and who are still active around the campus in one form or another are: Air. Roland Rice and Mr. Gilbert McVaugh, who are working in the psychol- ogy department ; Mr. George Sixbey, who is a very active alumnus, and .Mr. Richard Horner, a senior this year. The Fellowship has enjoyed three spring banquets, and three fall re- ceptions at the Chancellor ' s home. There have been gospel teams sent out to various Washington churches ; p rominent speakers have been brought to the campus; morning watch services are conducted the week before Easter; and the men are aided in any way possible towards the solving of problems of future work. In the 1928 Aucola, we find the following aims: " Members are en- couraged to participate in as many college activities as possible. The chief objective of the organization is to promote the spirit of fellowship among all students of whatever faith. " We have stated a part of our aims; we leave it to the student body to judge whether we reached our goal or not. At the National Convention in Grove City, Pennsylvania, during the Thanksgiving holidays in 1930, Thomas Cuddy was elected National Treasurer. This is the first National office to be held by an American L niversitv student. ay Ft M ki ? l i I 1 j£l » ■ VI Y .j,; ■ Jy fi V HL flHT 1 H ' fl fc] Ini k M P jLfii LJ dll ■ J Nli Faus, Hoover, Swanson, Fisher, Schaul, Masincup Heath, Towne, Evans, Lambert, Murphy, Wren, Moore International Relations Club OFFICERS Russell Lambf.rt President Jane Lytle ' ice-President Barbara Evans Secretary Arthur Murphy Treasurer MEMBERS Tames Caiola Barbara Evans Kef.lf.r Fa us Yui.f.
