An eminently admirable setting for the joys and sorrows, the studious labors ana indolent pleasures of our college lite, the campus holds a place peculiarly its own in the affections of every one of us. It is the purpose of the 19o0 AUvvOlLA to furnish a partial record, writ- ten and pictorial, of our lives here. i o that end, views ot the buildings with which, we have become thoroughly familiar, photographs of our pro- fessors and classmates, accounts of our athletic contests, and articles on the organizations of which we have been mem- bers, have all been included in the yearbook. I hen, to add just a bit to the pride with which an A. Uite will think ot his alma mater when perusing this volume, we have featured an element of A. U. life usually slighted — the campus itself. Our faculty embodies an unparalleled combination of technical skill with interest in the welfare of individual students. A. U. alumni are thankful to be able to declare that their professors assisted in their spiritual as well as mental development. 1 liese are acknowledged facts, and we do, at least partially, appreciate them. len we think of our student body, we again, with- out being boastful, feel blessed. A securely-founded insti- tution, ■with fine religious affiliations and a location in the [M 1 t tie A o Uo ( ampni; nation s capital, American University naturally attracts students of high mental calilber ana good mental liber. In the field of athletics, we find reason lor satisfaction. Under the leadersliip of a fine coach, our school, in spite of its size, has made an enviable name for itsell in basket- ball. Our foothall teams, although less successful, nave been noted lor tlieir gameness and team play. ;ivities otlier than atliletics also supply cause lor gratification. Our record in debating defies comparison. In two years of intense competition witn tike outstanding schools of tlie United States, we have suffered only one defeat. In addition we vanquished Oxford. 1 lie dramatic productions, especially tlie Shakespearean, nave attracted considerable favorable attention. Bo tin. tlie EAOLL and tlie AUCOLA nave won honors in journalistic contests. Likewise, in tike activities of academic and social organiza- tions, students nave found pleasure and profit. With this record Before it, the staff of the 19 6 i} AUCOLA decided that only a theme intimately con- nected with the University would be satisfactory. 1 oo, the staff thought that this theme deserved more apprecia- tion than it has hitherto received. 1 hus it is that the 1933 AUCOLA features the AMERICAN UNIVER- SITY CAMPUS.

The class elected Gordon Sievers president, Ann Henderson vice-president, Lucile MacDonald secretary, and Louis Heiss treasurer. Miss Henderson and Mr. Heiss had already served in their respective offices as Freshmen. Miss MacDonald did not return to A. U. for the second semester. The vacancy thus created was filled by the election of Margaret Moses. Undoubtedly one of the most important tasks of the Sophomore class was the assimila- tion of the Freshmen into the A. U. student body. This they accomplished with eclat. Ed Still, Chairman of the Freshman Rules Enforcement Committee, with kindness but with firmness, put our Freshman " raw material " into the proper co-operative frame of mind. To climax their pedagogic efforts, the Sophs defeated the babes on Field Day in all but one event, the result of experience and maturity, perhaps. aucola: a r. aw Thoraberry, Wiseman. Loenlal.

Scanllm Probably the Sophomores ' outstanding achievement was the annexation of the inter- class basketball championship. The class of ' 35 won all its games and placed three out of five on the mythical all-class team. In addition to athletes, the class contributed out- standing participants in Dramat, in debate, in the activities of the social and academic organizations, and in the journalistic endeavors of the Eagle and the Aucola. To top all else, this class led in the number of honor students. The class of ' 35 should certainly continue a great force on the campus of American University. ir rest imen WAKEMAN CHURCH Vice-President Secretary HOPPER WHEATLEY PresiJ.nl Treasurer Jr resliiiiani V lass THIS year ' s phenomenal freshman class has achieved a record in the accomplish- ment of unheard-of feats, such as marching around the campus chanting praises to Allah, getting its picture in the paper, and making money on a dance. The Big Brother and Big Sister party, intended to introduce the college to the freshmen, really gave the freshmen an opportunity to present their clarion voiced Eddie Hopper to the college through the medium of a one-man melodrama. The same eve- ning, they received the exquisite green identification tags which hung delicately from their necks for the next month. This period was climaxed by a stupendous funeral for the ornaments, at which time the mournful freshmen wailed their now-famous chant. A photograph of this sad ceremony appeared in the Washington Daily Veins. The football and basketball teams were each augmented by the services of a number of the members of the Class of ' 36. When Dramat wanted a leading lady and The Eagle needed two more members for the editorial board, freshmen filled these positions. One of the outstanding achievements of the class was in the field of philanthrophy. I Duckworth. Spratt, Hopper. Mueller. Soper, Connsrs Knight, Grove. Samson. Williamson. Coihran. Spiller. Brussarl.

Noble During the Community Chest campaign, it not only made the largest total gift of any class, but contributed far the largest amount per capita. The class chose as officers, Edward Hopper, president; Maiy Lesta Wakeman, vice president; Catharine Church, secretary; Melvin Wheatley, treasurer; and Harold Warner, student council representative. Their officers finally installed, the freshmen settled down to their greatest under- taking, the Saint Patrick ' s Dance. Features of this function which contributed to the amazement of upper classmen were: extensive advertising, a check room, a ten piece 3 orchestra, a healthy profit, and decorations which actually disguised the gym. It is rumored that the class will develop a cure for the depression next year!? S " _j v . s.

A distinct effort has been made here to keep athletics in their proper place with regard to the entire college program. Then and then only may modern athletics be free from criticism. This year a small group of colleges having similar problems and ideals have organized so as better to foster the relationships that have been developed over the past few years. 1 he organization has been named officially The Chesapeake Athletic Conference, and at the present time is composed of four institutions: Hampden-Sydney, Randolph-Macon, Lynch- burg, and American University. The formation of this group marks the successful effort on the part of American University to secure wholesome competition year after year with desirable institutions. This is important when we look to the future, since interest of students and alumni alike depends on natural rivalries that have been developed through years of competition. When we consider that nearly every college in this conference has been on the schedule of American University for the past three years, then we may appreciate the fact that al- ready there is a fine spirit of competition existing between the various institutions. There is now no reason why this spirit may not be continued and developed in a manner that will bring forth the finest feeling of loyalty and responsibility to the college. Our athletic progress here at American University has been slow in the past few years, particularly in football. But this is no reason for becoming discouraged concern- ing the future outlook. It is true that during the past year the football team was not particularly successful, although it did succeed in winning two games and scored more points for the season than did our opponents. But in the final game of the season, the team performed brilliantly against Randolph-Macon, a team that for the past two years has been at the top of the Virginia Conference. If the men returning for the season of 1933 can bring back with the team the same fire and dash that marked their efforts in that game, then the season of 1933 will mark a vast improvement over former years. For the past two years the basketball team has made a record for itself which is un- equalled in this section of the country. 1 here have been twenty-seven wins in thirty-one games. When we consider that in all but very few of these games the opposing teams represented much larger student bodies, then we realize how imposing this record is. But this year marks the loss of several men who for the past four years have been the back- bone of the team. Next season awaits us, therefore, with a greater problem than has be- fore been presented. But we may take courage in the fact that already development is being made and that what is lost in experience is being regained by added effort on the part of those whose responsibility it is to carry on. — Walter H.

When the squad re- ported in early Fall, there was a team, almost intact from the previous year, and plenty ft , i Coach YOUNG MENKE £ w BACKFIELD Claik Bor Parks of new material. The outlook from the start was subject for controversy. But prospects were favorable, particularly after the return of I argee, a veteran from former seasons, and the discovery of McLendon and Clarke, who, though new to the campus, proved formidable. The first game ol the season, with Hampden-Sydney, showed that a revitalized football team was representing A. U. Particularly after the start of the second period did the Eagles put forth their strength, scored three touchdowns, and for the rest of the game more than held their own against a stronger opponent. This contest conclusively showed that an improved team was to represent the alma mater. Then, in the second game, was the true strength of the team fully exhibited. Bridgewater College was the victim of a 33-0 defeat, largely through the sterling ef- J» 1 c ■ Cramplon TACKLES H. Johnson i ■ i ir.Nir.Rs A. Buffinglon forts of Eddie Parke, kicker extraordinary and plunging fullback. Here at last was the first victory since 1930, and what a victory! Next in order was Bluefield College from West Virginia, and the over-preponder- ance of bulk on the visitor ' s side forced the home boys to come out on the short end of a I 9-6 score. The annual Homecoming Game with Shepherd gave little more than r eason for rejoicing, because for some inexplicable reason the A. U-ites could not function ; and a nip and tuck second half failed to equal a two-touchdown lead of the visitors. But revenge was sweet, for the second victory of the season was gained over Gal- laudet, an outclassed, yet fighting team. Quarterback Borsari was the spark for the home team and the end was enevitable — a 26 to win for A. U. In the final and most impressive game of the season, the 1932 football team ex- I 11 II GUARDS Hcndrick R.

Flay.ng the 1931 champions of the Virginia Conference from Randolph-Macon College, the Eagle eleven played a superlative game. In the first five minutes of play the only touchdown of the opponents was registered, and from then to the final whistle both teams were on the defensive, with the home boys holding a slight edge. It was a fitting climax to the 1932 football schedule. During the course of the season the Eagles lost four games and won two, and for the entire campaign scored 82 points to 68 for the opponents. Any mention of a particular player as a star would not be in order, for the entire squad revealed a remarkable spirit of cooperation that carried it through the most successful period in several years. By graduation A. U. will lose a number of valuable men: Bowers, A. Bumngton, R. Bumngton, A. Johnson, H. Johnson, Larson, Parke, and Weeks. Thus will the number be sadly depleted, but for the coming season, here ' s hoping! MANAGERS Gibson Wiseman lucor J. Williams, Sievers, Grimm. Conner Sampson, Crampton, Larson, Tyler. Pietz. Uncle ffing:on. Dirk, Sells, Targee, G. Williams Basketball CONTINUING then excellent play of preceding years, the basketball team of 1933 equaled the record of the previous season and added more well-earned victories to the column. The student body is sincerely grateful to the team and to Coach oung for this commendable showing. In the opening game, the Eagles from A. U. displayed at the outset the type of basketball they were capable of playing. Maryland State Normal was a victim of a 32-16 defeat, and from that time the story has rem lined practically the same for the other engagements. The second triumph of the season was scored over Hampden-Sydney in a thoroughly satisfying game in which the invaders were put down by a 31-20 score. Swinging into the South, Virginia Medical C ollege was easily defeated by the fast passing and accurate shooting team from A. U., 49-19. On the same trip Hampden- Sydney was again successfully vanquished to the tune of a 28-27 score, though only after Kessler made a spectacular Iast-nv.nute shot. Then came the big game with Navy — the first loss of the season was inflicted on the Eagles after a gamely-fought encounter with the boys at Annapolis. I hough out- classed from the start, the team functioned well, but lost, 39-24. It is gratifying to note that A. U. gave Navy the stiffest competition in all the games the Sailors played. Undisturbed by the defeat at the hands of the Naval Academy, tie oungmen registered a 26-18 victory in a hard-fought game with the St. John ' s quint of Annapolis. 4 Dick Forward Sells Center G. Williams Forward and Bridgewaler afforded little opposition until the Junior Varsity was substituted, the final tally indicating another victory, 27-22. Randolph-Macon, always a trouble-maker for the Eagles, administered the only other defeat of the season when the team made its second tour of Virginia. A last minute spurt of the Jackets gave them the victory, 29-27. Gallaudet, the next opponent, was easily subdued, however, and when the game ended the Blues were on the short end of a 29-1 5 score. Sweet revenge was obtained when the Eagles defeated Randolph-Macon in the A. U. Gym in one of the most exciting games of the series. Only the whistles decided the final outcome, 32-31, so close was the scoring. Tarcee Guard J. Williams Guard Larson Forward A. BuFF!NCTO Forward Elon offered little resistance in a 38-1 3 lacing, and the second game with St. John ' s was a repetition of the first, for the opponents were put down, 32-26, on the enemy floor. 1 he remainder of the season was marked by little excitement, for Lynchburg College fell victim to the Eagle attack, 44-25. Bridgewater suffered a like end, 36-20, and the season was rounded out by the 43-31 defeat of Virginia Medical College. Graduating from American University, this year, are seven members of the basket- ball squad — seven men whose loss will be felt in the seasons to come. Oscar Sells, Leonel Dick, John Williams, Wayne Larson, Gladstone Williams, Albert Buffington, and Manager Harry Underwood will be gone. Surely many seasons will intervene before a team will be produced that will measure up to the record left by those seven men. a MANAGERS Alexander « Haines. Hunter, Martin, Warner.

OItho ORGANIZED not only as a club for women who have won their sports ' letters, but also as an incentive to participation in interclass sports, the " A " Club instigates and sponsors plans and programs for women ' s athletics. In the annual Orange and Blue Color-Choosing Ceremony, its first event of the school year, the " A " Club gives all the new women of the college an opportunity to " draw their colors. " After the interclass games in each sport have been completed. Orange and Blue teams are made up from the best players on the class teams. These approach, in a sense, varsity teams. This year, besides the interclass competition in hockey, basketball, volley ball, and soccer, a swim- ming meet, and archery and tennis tournaments were held. The indoor sports, ping pong and shuffle- board were also given a place in the schedule of contests. Through the Eagle Hockey Club and the Baskeball Club, play days and friendly games with other schools and clubs were arranged. The Club ' s social program included this year a week-end at Kamp Kahlert on the West River. The season ended with the annual spring banquet, at which new members are received into the Club and awards of letters and fourth year insignia are made.

Though the juniors were victorious over the sophomores, they suffered a loss under the quick sticks of the seniors. In hopes of winning at least one game, the freshmen worked hard against the sophomores, but only managed to sustain another defeat. Since the juniors forfeited a game to the sophomores, the seniors and sophomores, with shivering bare legs and sweaters fastened high at the neck, met on a cold December day to decide which the winners would be. The few sophomores who turned out for the game played hard, filling two positions at once, but in vain. They were forced to give way to the overpowering ranks of the seniors, captained by Anne King, in the final 6-0 victory. R.

The establishment of a chapter of Delta Sigma Rho last spring served to stimulate the members of the squad to a greater degree than ever before, and as this article went to press, it appeared possible that this year ' s team might equal, or at least approach, the unbeaten record of the preceding year. Easily the high spot of the season was the debate held in November with Oxford University on the question of cancellation of the war debts. An overflow crowd descended upon Hurst Hall, and several hundred would-be spectators had to be turned away, an unprecedented event in American University debating history. A colorful audience, which packed the auditorium and even disposed itself in the nearby halls and corridors, included delegations from the British Embassy and the English-Speaking Union, as well as a number of other distinguished personages. Leon Elsberg and Robert Marcus of American University, upholding the negative of the war debts question, earned a 3-0 decision over Messrs. Wilson and Ervine of Oxford after an excellent debate. Forensic relations were established during the course of the year with several schools not previously met by American University teams, including University of Pennsylvania, Denison, Drew, Wesleyan, and Oberhn. At the same time, colleges with whom American has maintained cordial relations over a long period of years, such as Ohio Wesleyan, New York University, Rutgers, and others, were again included on the schedule. In general, the schedule for the present year presented one of the best-balanced programs ever under- taken by debaters at this institution.

Woods Oel ' tei Oliguria JK.J THE American University chapter of Delta Sigma Rho, national honorary forensic society, was established on May 21, 1932. Dr. Henry L. Ewbank of the University of Wisconsin, national president of the society, was present, and directed the installation ceremonies. Speeches were given by Dr. Ewbank, Dr. George B. Woods, and Mr. Donald J. Sherbondy. Miss Louise Feinstein form- allj welcomed the new chapter on behalf of the George Washington University chapter. In the evening, a formal banquet was given jointly by the American and George Washington University chapters. Delta Sigma Rho was founded on April 13, 1906, in Chicago. The first i haptei was established during the same year at the University of Minnesota. Since then it has grown steadily, and now includes over sixty chapters located at outstand- ing institutions in all parts of the country. The purpose of the society, according to the preamble of its constitution, is " to encourage sincere public speaking. " Mem- bership in the organization is probably the highest honor that can be won in tie field of oratory and debating. At American University a prospective member must have engaged in varsity debating over a period of at least two years, participated hi at least three intercollegiate debates, and been voted into membership by the chapter. The establishment of a chapter of the society at American University was a signal recognition of the high debating standards maintained by this institution, since as a general rule no chapter is granted to an institution which has not been regularly represented in forensics over a ten-year period. American University, however, has always had coaches who were members of Delta Sigma Rho, and Delta Sigma Rho men have always acted as judges for debates. In addition, the exceptional record compiled by American University teams, which have won over eighty percent of all decision debates in which they have engaged, could not be overlooked. Six students and three members of the factulty became charter members of the American University chapter upon its establishment. I he students are W. ule Fisher, Charlotte Magee, Robert H. Marcus. Arthur R. Murphy, W. Earl Masin- cup, and Max I ucker. The faculty members are Hilda Minder French. Dr. George B. Woods, and Mr. Donald J. Sherbondy. Dr. Woods had already been elected to membership in the society by the Northwestern University chapter, while Mrs. French and Mr. Sherbondy are members of the chapter at Ohio Wesleyan Uni- versity.
