Thompson G. Hild H. Thompson Class of 1936 Elbridge Church President Georgeanna Hild Vice President Alice Thompson Secretary Howard Thompson Treasurer THE expiring seniors have been noted for their variety of talent, which in- cludes genius in things vocal, financial, military, dramatic, forensic, scientific, and academic. In revivals of Pinafore and Mika- do, Helen Shenton and Jackie Mac- Donald, prima donna members of the class, starred. In the speaking drama, aspiring tragedians and clowns, in the persons of Ran Book, Al Cooper, and Eddie Hopper prospered under the bel- lowings of Professor Hutchins, and kept their audiences either in tears or in stitches. The outgoing group has been a paying concern. In their Frosh year was started a series of clever and popular all-college dances which have paid sub- stantial dividends, thanks to financier Worthy Houghton. In athletics Staff Cassell was star guarterback last year. Other men of brawn include Barss, Houghton, Porter, Rhodes, Thompson, and Wheatley. In the field of women ' s sports, Church, Knight, Fairchild, Parks, Shenton, Thompson, and Wakeman led the van of fair warriors. Lung athletics has been supported by Hoadley, Hopper, Reed, Shaw, Wakeman, and Wheatley, who have helped to build up the enviable A.U. debate record. Each year the class has boasted a high percentage of honor students. C. Church, Cooper, Reed, Smith, Spiller, Wakeman, and Wheatley were elected to the College Honor Society. Andrews, Cunningham, and Knight were admitted to Beta Beta Beta. Literary members of the group include Frank Hoadley, last year ' s editor of the Aucola and present head of the Eagle; and Beadle, Cooper, and Wheeler in the Poetry Club. For its gift the Class of ' 36 is presenting to the College a library of English literature in memory of Dr. Golder. The gift will consist of books particularly de- sired by Dr. Golder, of the type of literature which will be good extra-curricular reading for students. It will form a nucleus which will grow from annual ad- ditions. In conclusion, it is hoped that this eleventh graduating class will carry on in this spirit and build up a greater name for American University. « 37 » AUCOLA S. RALPH ANDREWS, Jr. I? I!

REMARKABLE . . . There is nothing of the mediocre or ordinary about Ralph. Under a quietly dignified exterior, he conceals a world of fun and mischief; under a fai ntly absent-minded air lies a keen, quick mind, eager to grasp and retain the best. Washington, D.C. ALICE APPLEGATE AX English Clarinda Junior College, 1, 2; Dramat, 4 (1 play); Glee Club, 3. GRACIOUS . . . Alice has all the charm, poise, and gentleness of the days of crinolines and lavender. But she also has all the intelligence and capability of modern days. She listens quietly, speaks softly, and evidences always a willingness to be of service. 19 3 6 Corvallis, Oregon ROGER P.

UNPRETENTIOUS . . . Roger is incredibly quiet about himself. But he is no negligible quantity. When he speaks — only too rarely — it is because he has something of importance to voice. When he smiles you will find that the event was worth waiting for. 38 A U C O L A JEANNE BEADLE Washington, D.C.

RETIRING . . . Quiet Jeannie is one of the people who en- deavor to hide a remarkably brilliant light under a bushel. Those of us who manage to remove the bushel find a penetrat- ing mind, efficient intelligence, and a love of all things beauti- ful and ideal. To know in some small measure the true self back of her reserve is to know something worthwhile.

SUAVE . . . Ran is self-contained, self-reliant, assured and poised. He refuses to be disturbed by petty affairs, or let any- thing interfere with the business in hand. But he is no unso- ciable grind. Ran is jolly good fun, back stage, in the labs, at dances — in fact all the time. Stick around, and you ' ll see. 19 3 6 FRANZ G. BORBE Chicago, Illinois History Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, 1, 2; Class Honors, 4; German Club, 4 (President, 4). SCHOLARLY . . . There is the quality of searching analysis, in- tensive thought, exhaustive study about everything Franz does. He never turns in a piece of work imperfectly done, is content with no halfway or slipshod jobs. He does what he does thoroughly — and seriously; yet every now and then there is an imp of mischief in his eyes, and his jolly smile bespeaks a gen- erous humor. 39 AU CO L A ROBERT C. BURBANK Washington, D.C. Chemistry French Club, 1; German Club, 3, 4; Student Christian Association, 1; Westerner Club, 1, 2, 3. SCIENTIFIC . . . When, and if, you find Burby somewhere other than in one of the labs, it will be at Constitution Hall, or per- haps, on some rare occasions, at the piano. Reticent and un- assuming, Burby is to be valued as a worker, as a person. 19 3 6 STAFFORD H. Galesburg, Illinois CASSELL Religion Dickinson Junior College, 1, 2; Student Council, 4 (Vice President, 4); Football, 3; Basketball, 3; Intramural Sports, 4. STEADY . . . There is a quality like the rock of Gibraltar about Staff — resolute, strong, and prepared for any emergency. There is not, however, anything overweeningly aggressive about him. It is a calm strength, unperturbed, cheerful, amused. Staff will not fail, but he will not be overbearing in his success. CATHERINE CHURCH AI HTM Washington, D.C.

CALM . . . Kit ' s unfailingly peaceful air is infectious and reas- suring. She is unhurried, but never unprepared. She goes about her work intently, wearing that cheerful smile of hers. Kit is blessed with steady vision, a sure sense of values, and the capability to make the most of them. « 40 » A U CO LA M.

EFFICIENT . . . Apparently easy-going, there is nothing lax about El. He is always being wanted for some new and dif- ficult job and is always ready with a smile, a joke, and, on the proper occasions, constructive ideas. 19 3 6 G. ALBERT COOPER Washington, D.C.

WITTY . . . Al is one of the school ' s most indefatigable pun- sters and jokers. His talent for fun has rocked many a class to its foundations. But that is not all of Al. He thinks deeply and clearly. His sense of justice and fairness tempers all he does. KATHERINE CUNNINGHAM I M. BBB Washington, D.C. Biology Beta Beta Beta (Vice President, 3, 4); Interna- tional Relations Club, 3, 4; Intramural Sports, 1, 2, 3, 4. QUIET . . . Kay goes so silently about her work that if she weren ' t such a thoroughly pleasant person we might never notice her. It is worth the effort to seek her out. Kay is one of the rare people whom we classify as givers — she is lavish of her lime, energy, ideas, and labor. 41 AU CO L A HOWARD DUCKWORTH Jesters Providence, Rhode Island economics Hamilton House Association, 3 (President, 3); Dramat, 2 (1 play); Student Christian Association, 2, 3; Football, 2; Intramural Sports, 1, 2, 3, 4. CAREFREE . . . Ducky embodies the best of that word. He re- fuses to worry needlessly, has a persistent optimism, and a rol- licking, infectious good humor for all times. There is nothing of the slacker in his carefreeness, but rather an activity and progressive accomplishment refusing to be hindered by petty cares. MRS. JOSEPH F. ELWARD Washington, D.C. English Marywood College, 1, 2, 3; International Rela- tions Club, 4. INTENT . . . Here is one of those persons who seem intent on the higher learning to the exclusion of everything else. This is a pity, for the sense of humor which she brings to bear on her studies and class work, intimates that she would be an asset to any project. 19 3 6 JEAN WARD FAIRCHILD I M Washington, D.C.

Jean is a builder, a tireless worker in a good cause. No job can loom too large for her, and no task to which she turns her hand will go unfinished. She is gentle and cooperative, untiringly patient, and never out of sorts. 42 » A U CO LA HENRY PHILIP GILBERT 1 BZ Washington, D.C. Economics Eagle Staff, 1, 2; Glee Club, 2, 3; Brecky Club, 1, 2, 3, 4; Intramural Sports, 1, 2, 3, 4. CHEERFUL . . . You can ' t down Phil. In any adversity he man- ages to wear the well-known Gilbert smile. He dashes madly around the campus, grinning merrily at all he meets, with a joke on his lips, ready for anything. Yet he is by no means entirely the funster — Phil can be serious when need be, and often is. VIRGINIA GROVE AX Takoma Park, Maryland Economics Class Honors, 2; Women ' s House Government Association, 3 (Secretary, 3); Glee Club, 3, 4; Student Christian Association, 3, 4; Intramural Sports, 2, 3, 4. SUNNY . . . Little Ginny, of the blonde hair, aloof manner, and joyous laugh, has a perpetual air of bright happiness about her as she whisks about her daily life. Beneath her quick hand, tasks are finished before you know it, and Ginny smiles and goes on to the next assignment. 19 3 6 GEORGEANNA HILD Washington, D.C.

INDISPENSABLE ... No worthy project would be complete without Georgie ' s broad smile, her cheerful expertness, and her readiness to join all enterprises. Minor mishaps do not ruf- fle her, and major ones just do not occur when Georgie is on the job. 43 A U CO LA FRANK TALIAFERRO HOADLEY All ' , IIPM Chevy Chase, Maryland English and Political Science Class Honors, 1, 2; Brahmins, 3, 4; Publications Honor Fraternity, 4; Aucola Staff, 1, 2, 3, 4 (Edi- tor, 3; Advisory Editor, 4); Eagle Staff, 1, 2, 3, 4 (Assistant Editor, 2; Managing Editor, 4); Eyrie, 4; Debate, 1, 2, 3, 4 (Assistant Manager, 3; 17 de- bates); International Relations Club, 2, 3, 4; Dra- mat, 3 (1 play); French Club, 1, 2, 3, 4. TIRELESS .... We agree that Frank is a glutton for work. La- boring endlessly himself, he inspires others to do their best, and those who work with him know how considerate and quick to see values he is. Always alert for improvement, farsighted and thoroughgoing, Frank has been not only a leader but a cham- pion of the best. 19 3 6 DONALD HOLLAR Hazleton, Pennsylvania Religion and Philosophy Dickinson Junior College, 1, 2; Band, 3; Oxford Fellowship, 3. SUBTLE . . . Behind a slightly cynical and always amused ex- pression, Donn conceals a rather rare sense of humor that needs none of the sharpening he can give it at the expense of his friends. Quiet, dignified, impressive in unsmiling silence that is not silence, Donn has a wicked twinkle in his eye, and a quick, alert mind to solve problems. Washington, D.C.

Eddie has so successfully filled his post as grand comrade, and co-worker-in-extraordinary, that he has left us no space to say what should be said. 44 » AU COL A WORTHINGTON BOWIE HOUGHTON Washington, D.C.

WONDER-WORKING . . . Worthy combines all the qualities of the best prestidigitators with those of the hardest working ex- ecutives. Out of nothing he can produce something which operates on a working basis. 19 3 6 HOWARD L. JOHNSON Washington, D.C. Biology Washington Missionary College, 1, 2, 3; Student Peace Committee, 4 (Chairman, 4). DECISIVE . . . Keenly aggressive in his chosen lines, Howard leaves no stone unturned to produce the effect or result he de- sires. He has the quality of going straight to the point and re- maining there with undeviating sincerity and commendable accuracy of execution. MILDRED LOUISE KNIGHT BBB South Orange, New Jersey Spanish Class Honors, 3; Beta Beta Beta (Secretary- Treasurer, 3, 4); French Club, 2, 3, 4; Spanish Club, 2, 3, 4 (Secretary-Treasurer, 3; Vice Presi- dent, 4); Student Christian Association, 1, 2, 3, 4; Women ' s A Club, 3, 4 (Treasurer, 4); Eagle Hockey Club, 2, 3, 4; Intramural Sports, 2, 3, 4. STARTLING . . . From her vivid coloring to the deeds she does, Knighty will take your breath away. There is nothing mediocre or half-way about Knighty. She doesn ' t blow her own horn, or ever talk about herself, but if you ' ll look you ' ll find that nothing is too big for her to tackle, or too small to be well done. 45 AUCOLA MARGARET ELIZABETH KOBER Takoma Park, Maryland French French Club, 1, 2, 3, 4; Student Christian Asso- ciation, 1, 2, 3, 4. DIGNIFIED . . . But the dignity is not the overbearing kind. It is the poised, calm dignity of simplicity that is the best kind. It is gentle, yet efficient and withal, enviable. Margaret is re- served, but the reservation hides ability. WINIFRED KOENIG I IB Washington, D.C. University of Kansas, 1, 2, 3. French SOPHISTICATED . . . From the top of her faultlessly groomed head to the bottoms of her smartly shod feet, Winnie is alertly correct, immaculately attractive, and sensibly inguiring of mind. 19 3 6 Spearfish.

GENTLE . . . Berenice is another one of those lavender and old lace girls. She makes you want to protect her — yet wait ' til you know her, and you ' ll find there is no yielding weakness in her make-up. The old-fashioned quality in her air and carriage has none of the conservative cowardice of those who are afraid to progress. It has life and motion., and serves to temper and make sweet her daily contacts. 46 AU CO L A ELIZABETH MacDONALD •I ' M Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania Spanish Phi Mu (Secretary, 3); Class Secretary, 3; Wo- men ' s House Government Association, 3; Dra- mat, 1, 2 (2 plays); Glee Club, 1, 2, 3, 4 (Mikado, Pinafore); Chorus, 3, 4; French Club, 1, 2, 3, 4; Spanish Club, 1, 2, 3, 4; Student Christian As- sociation, 1, 2, 3; Dickinson Club, 1, 2, 3, 4 (Sec- retary, 3; President, 4). LILTING . . . Golden-haired, golden-voiced Jackie carries mu- sic and sunlight wherever she goes, and is generous with both. Always willing to spare a pleasant word and a smile, Jackie keeps all too successfully hidden the delightfully light and mis- chievous sense of humor she possesses. EDITH J. NIEMTZOW Freehold, New Jersey Mathematics Hood College, 1, 2; French Club, 3, 4; Eagle Hockey Club, 3; Intramural Sports, 3, 4. ATTENTIVE . . . Completely feminine, yet with a scientific turn of mind that gives her the power to reason clearly, Edith goes guietly about campus, never forcing herself upon anyone ' s notice, yet always on hand at the proper time. 19 3 6 CHESTER MORRILL, Jr. I I!Z Chevy Chase, D.C.

MARTIAL . . . There is military correctness not only in the way Chet bears himself, but in his method of carrying on his affairs. Upright, alert, precise, giving no guarter nor asking it, strategic in his handling of situations, he is possessed of the best gual- ities of generalship. « 47 » AU CO L A HARRIET G.

You can ' t down him, and it would be dangerous to try, in spite of that mislead- ing drawl, and that easy-going stride of his. Always coopera- tive, with the joviality of the powerful, and the assurance of the competent, Tom is an integral part of campus life.

SERIOUS . . . This guality, combined with a cheerful disposi- tion and a not-to-be-downed sense of mischief, makes Ed a light on the campus horizon. In classes he seems well marked for a minister; out of classes it is obvious that he brings to his vocation the toleration and the understanding which should be its prerequisites. 48 AU COL A HARRIET A.

CONSCIENTIOUS ... In all the walks of her life around campus, Harriet has that air of quiet deliberation which goes so well with her steady eyes. She never deserts a responsibil- ity, never refuses one, and never fails in the execution of that responsibility. 19 3 6 MARGARET KIMBLE REEDER «I-M Hughesville, Pennsylvania English Dickinson Junior College, 1, 2; Phi Mu (Vice President, 4); Women ' s House Government As- sociation, 4 (Treasurer, 4); Glee Club, 3; Chorus, 3; Student Christian Association, 3, 4. TONAL . . . There is a song quality about everything Margie does, from her singing to the smallest task of the day. Grace- ful, poised, calm, interested, all these apply to her yet do not fully describe her. Describing Margie is like trying to tabulate the notes of a sonata, impossible, and tantalizing in that im- possibility. LETHA EVELYNE ROBINSON Miami, Oklahoma Economics Northwestern Oklahoma Junior College, 1; Stephens Junior College for Women, 2; Baylor University, 3; Class Honors, 4; Student Christian Association, 4. MATURE . . . Letha has retained all the charm of her youth, and rejected all its flaws. She is poised, quiet, gracious, faultlessly capable of handling any situation, retaining her composure whatever mishap occurs. 49 AU CO L A HAYLETT B.

He will not shirk the investigation for fear of the result. HELEN SHENTON 1 M Washington, D.C.

LYRIC . . . Helen has the quality of song about her. She is a song by Schubert or Schumann, gentle, affectionate, but steady and unfailing. She has the power of concentrated effort that is never brusque nor rude. She is unswerving, but lovely; cap- able, but graceful. 19 3 6 ESTHER MIRICK SMITH E M Washington, D.C.

ACUTE . . . Smitty has her lighter — even her silly — moments. But look past them to the mind that can be gay on occasion but sees through the superficial to the real. Look, and find also an evenness of temper, an unwavering loyalty, and an intense be- lief in believing the truest things. « 50 » A U CO LA MARGARET SPILLER Washington, D.C.

Yet it is much too hard and unforgiving to do justice to Peggy ' s warm and friendly nature. Peggy plays the piano with technical bril- liance, but she brings to it also a deep understanding. H.

Persuasive, incorrigibly humorous, boisterously efficient, Alice laughs her way around campus, intimidating the fearful, but making friends of the intelligent. 51 » A U CO LA HOWARD THOMPSON i BZ Newburgh, New York History Dickinson Junior College, 1, 2; Phi Beta Zeta (Treasurer, 4); Class Treasurer, 4; Dramat, 3, 4; Football, 3, 4; Basketball, 3; Track, 3, 4; Class Basketball, 4. STRONG . . . Howard gives the impression of being — and is — a bulwark of strength. He has a mind that he is unafraid to use, a temper that can stand up to all comers, and a set of firm prin- ciples and convictions to which he adheres with commendable zeal. There ' s no stopping Howard, once he determines on the proper course. 19 3 6 EDWARD J. THRASHER Washington, D.C.

For such a quiet person, Ed is a big surprise. He minds his own business scrupulously, and never calls at- tention to himself, but he is capable of vigorous action, con- structive criticism, and intelligent cooperation.

Her life will be characterized not only by the unfeeling adjective useful, but also by the warmer, enviable one abundant. 52 A U CO LA HAROLD WARNER Jesters Lovettsville, Virginia Physics Student Council, 1, 2, 3; Dramat, 2, 3 (2 plays); Student Christian Association, 1, 2, 3; Intramu- ral Sports, 1, 2. MISCHIEVOUS . . . Even when his face is serious, Harold has a wicked glint of fun in those black eyes. He has all the chemist ' s ability for scientific research and logical procedure in rela- tion to the findings, coupled with an adventurous spirit of mis- chief, that alleviates the longest piece of work. 19 3 6 MELVIN E.

UNPREDICTABLE . . . Betty ' s moods vary from the sublime to the ridiculous, and she is brilliant in each. Good-natured, al- most to the point of hysteria, she is a delightful companion; in her more serious hours she is an industrious student and worker, dependable, ingenious, poetic, and yet practical. 53 A U CO LA H. ELIZABETH WILKINS Swagger Washington, D.C. French Club, 1, 2, 3. Art CORDIAL . . . You never see Betty without her welcoming smile, and her friendly gaiety. But it is not a noisy gaiety, nor an obtrusive cordiality. It is the best kind, making itself felt, not heard; it is inherent, not assumed. WINTHROP C. WOLFE Washington, D.C.

There is nothing of the unruffled placidity of still waters at dawn about Winnie. Why he hasn ' t blown the labs up more than once, no one seems to know. But the fact that he is capable of so much turbulent volcanic action, which does not guite disrupt the entire works, is the secret of his suc- cess. When the smoke clears away, and the debris settles down, there will be Winnie, undisturbed, chortling with glee over another accomplishment. 19 3 6 North Abington, Massachusetts PHILIP HINCKLEY Jesters History CAROLYN KOHEN Amityville, Long Island, New York Education Washington, D.C.

Spratt M. Walker F. W. Page Leith IENIAL Joe Thomas, ' 34, led the Class of 1937 on its way to political independence, while Eddie Hopper, ' 36, did his best to provide needed disci- pline for the Frosh, who retaliated by hanging him in effigy. The Freshmen be- came completely free from upper class dominance after Field Day, when they won two out of the three events. The social climax of the year, the Star Dance, with silver and scarlet decorations was held March 22, Lee Fields ' music presiding. In the second year, the disciplinary efforts of the Sophomores were made difficult by the huge freshman class, but Sidney Sachs, who also served as Presi- dent, struggled valiantly to keep the green tide in check. Athletic prowess on the varsity basketball squad was exemplified by Bob Hill and Bill Leith. To finish off a successful year the Sophomore Circus Dance was given, with Church ' s orchestra. At this original function campus leaders found themselves cari- catured on billboards in the gym. As Juniors, the thirty-sevens were represented by Winslow on the varsity gridiron, and by Zink and Leith on the basketball court, while the feminine con- tingent came through with intramural honors in both hockey and basketball. In addition, Juniors headed the Women ' s House Government Association, the Women ' s A Club, the Eyrie Staff, the Spanish Club, and both the Jesters and Swagger Clubs. The ingenuity of the class resulted in a lighted Christmas tree for the campus and in the clever Jolly Juniors ' Jail Jamboree featuring gang- ster characters and penitentiary atmosphere. This was held during February. The formal reception for the class by Chancellor and Mrs. Gray and the Junior Prom at the Shoreham Hotel on April 17th were the highlights of the social sea- son. With this background, the Class of 1937 expects to try to fill completely the vacated shoes of the graduating class. 56 AU COL A Bennett Brattain Brougher DOROTHY ALEXEANA BENNETT WASHINGTON, D.C.

Fretting impatiently under bondage imposed by the terrible Sachs, the underdogs disca rded their symbols of inferiority after the victory over the upperclassmen on Field Day. More constructive fields soon claimed R. Carroll K. Taylor the freshman talents. Leading roles in P.Davis A.Shaw Candida and Much Ado About Nothing were played by ' 38 Thespians. One member was the first freshman ever to debate on the varsity sguad. Six class- men worked on the Aucola staff and twenty-one on the Eagle. The most amusing feature of the year was the coronation of little William Briggs as Queen of the May in the take-off on the women ' s festival. In spite of the usual drop in enrollment, the school spirit of the class rather in- creased than lessened in its sophomore year. Football huskies Applegate, Carlo, Dick, Hanawalt, Hansborough, and Winslow were among the stars of the A.U. football sguad. The touch football title easily went to the class; Bee Craig made the all-D.C. hockey team and played with Cohen, Humphreys, Laise, and Wyman on the varsity team. Carrying on the class dramatic tradition, Bill Thompson and Rowland Rob- erts acted in Is Life Worth Living? Nor was scribbling talent unavailable. Bartle became one of the most popular Eagle columnists, and Frank Diggs, Lew Frank, and Raymond Wrenn are Assistant Editors. Bernie Carroll is becoming more and more popular as a rhythm artist. Later in the season, Edwards, Harris, and Lee were invaluable to the basket- ball sguad. Jane Getz and Kathryn Ingberg helped make the varsity debate sguad well-nigh invulnerable, and class honors were earned by Aiken, F. Church, Copenhafer, Getz, Kauffman, Laise, Maris, Masi, and J. Williams. The Sophomore Spring Cruise in March set a high standard for class dances. The nautical theme was carried out to perfection, insuring the success of the event. 68 A U CO LA SOPHOMORE WOMEN Getz, M. Harris, Tyler. R.

Muriel Bain Vice President Patricia Murphy Secretary Howard Hudson Treasurer K ATRICULATING on Friday the ■ ■ thirteenth may seem unlucky to some people but for the largest begin- ning class in the history of A.U. it was a lucky omen, as is evidenced by the many and various activities in which the Freshmen have taken part. A. Jump P. Murphy M. Bain H. Hudson Although at first somewhat subdued by the green hair-ribbons, name tags, and dinks, the first milestone in the class history was marked by the winning of the women ' s hockey game and the tug- of-war on Field Day, which was the occasion for a nocturnal, kidnaping war- fare between the vict orious Frosh and the humiliated upperclassmen. Many Freshmen tried out for the football team and seven became the main- stay of the varsity. They were Toner, Bartlett, Howard, Sitnik, Maize, Yackel, and Shoop. Those thirty-niners who seem destined to go far in their basket- ball careers are Bartlett, Benscoter, Bastian, Hudson, and Yackel. The frosh women were not far behind the men. With enthusiasm many par- ticipated in hockey. Among the star players were Thornton, Brundage, Murphy, Palmer, and Wells. The Freshmen have turned to other fields besides that of athletics. Six Fresh- men took part in the fall play, Is Life Worth Living? These were Johnston, Keker, Knockey, Omo, Patton, and Strong. The Eagle and Aucola staffs also re- ceived the benefit of freshman assistance. The musically inclined members of the class are taking part not only in the Orchestra and Band, but also in the chapel choir and glee clubs. Other campus organizations likewise receive freshman support. Their initial social effort, one of the successful affairs of the academic year, was held in May to the tune of a moderne theme. « 70 » A U CO LA FRESHMAN WOMEN Belden, Morse, Bain, Aubry, Sartwell, Butrick, Wallace, Heintz Poling, Batcheler, Goddard, Bishop, Crew, Rice, Whitney, Mitman, Omo, Amadon, Eells Jones, Loftis, Murphy, A.

We hope you will enjoy and approve it, but there is very little you can do about it if you don ' t. We can at least say that the staff has labored long, and to the best of its abilities, however poor you may consider them. Whatever you think of it, we have had a limited amount of fun and an unlimited amount of labor, which has resulted, we hope, in an Aucola which will please some of the people some of the time. Maynard Eicher, Editor Carl Stevens, Business Manager There have been some changes made: division pages in three colors, drawings instead of photo- graphic views, honorary fraternities placed in the general fraternity section rather than among the or- ganizations, illustrated calendar section, and finally a greatly increased number of pictures. But you can observe all these things for yourself by looking at your Aucola. So we will merely say here that there are worse things than working on a year book — there must be — and that we wish the strugglers next year better luck than we ' ve had. 76 » AU COL A Chan, Dietz, Winter, Hummer, Boyd, Getz, Jump, Woods, Bartle, E.

Houghton, Business Manager The Eagle • PHE Eagle ' s tenth year has been notable for changes and achievements. For the first time the editorial board and business boards have been placed under the supervision of one officer, the Managing Editor, who serves to co-ordinate the two staffs. In accordance with this system, four as- sistant editors have been trained by the year ' s work in the various editorial and business fields, in order to compete for the position of Managing Editor next year. A reference library of cuts and pictures has been established under Rowland Roberts, making the use of an increased number of cuts possible. In con- nection with this, a series of old pictures of the campus was printed. Among the outstanding issues of the year were the Tenth Anniversary Issue and the Co-ed Issue. The latter was published entirely by the women members of the staff. Serving The Eagle as faculty adviser this year, Dean Woods allowed the staff to set a new high standard for student direction. Making no effort to censor the contents of news or editorials before or after publication, he nevertheless made himself always available to the editors for advice and suggestions. The business board made remarkable progress in wiping out the major part of a deficit of several years ' standing. The Eagle tied for second place within its class in the Virginia Intercol- legiate Press Association. Frank Hoadley and Frank Diggs represented the Eagle at the Association ' s convention. Diggs was elected to the executive com- mittee. The Eagle also belongs to the Associated Collegiate Press. 78 » AU CO L A Dietz, Bastian, Keker, Meininger, Havens, Masi Bick, Boyden, H.

NE of the most recent publications on the campus is The Eyrie, a student literary magazine. Its purpose is to act as an organ through which the liter- ary and artistic abilities of the college may find expression, and to introduce to the students a new cultural field in the i Uk. ■ line of original work. The publication is the responsibility of the school as a whole. The staff mem- bers are chosen irrespective of classes, on a basis of ability. The Eyrie is issued twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. « 80 A U COL A Reeder, Walker, LeMasters, A.

This in- cluded a formal dinner-dance in place of the spring tea-dance, and a formal din- ner before the Campus Concert in April. Other traditional events were re- peated with changes and improvements. The Christmas Candlelight Service was presented ' with different formation, cos- tumes, and ceremony arranged by Frances Page. A Hallowe ' en party was held in the private dining room, with prizes for the best costumes. The formal dinner before the Christ- mas Play, and the annual dormitory party around the Christmas tree were held as usual. « 81 » A U CO LA Bick, Stewart, H.

The works of eminent composers were studied and analyzed by means of periods of sight reading. The repertoire of the orchestra has been built prin- cipally on chamber music, because of the size of the organization.

At that time Mary Aiken, acting president in Meininger ' s absence, was unanimously acclaimed president. As in former years, the purpose of the club has been to continue high school friendships, and to provide publicity for American University at Central. With these aims in view, the Brecky Club pre- sented a program at Central, and in co- operation with the Westerner Club pro- lan;, j- moted a tea dance in the spring. « 92 » A U CO LA M.

Three weeks later the Eagles hung up their first victory of the sea- son, and gave signs of being the most successful group of gridironers in the his- tory of the institution. On November 9th they closed their season, not the most successful, but the most promising eleven which American University fans have ever witnessed. The most hopeful factor of the 1935 football squad was its youthfulness. Only one man of the tweniy-seven is a senior. The remainder have two or three more years of football service ahead of them. In their three home engagements at Central Stadium, the Eagles attracted more local inter- im M est than ever before, playing before over ten ;. thousand spectators. Added color was supplied . £ J by a new five-man cheering corps, the Metro- L • J politan Police Boys ' Band, and Leon Brusiloff ' s £ k Marine Corps Musicians. ' j£ m Another addition to the Eagle football games m t was the Gridiron Sportscore, an eight-page Mf football program, published by the Student «3pF J Athletic Committee, with Lewis Frank as editor, i Ur in Roger Barss as business manager, and Donald M r SflH Pettus and Frederick Boyd as advertising man- « 129 » AU CO L A AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 60 BRIDGEWATER Brilliantly garbed in new orange jerseys, the Eagles took the field at Central Stadium before four thou- sand spectators on September 28, and trounced their Chesapeake Con- ference rivals from Bridgewater Col- lege, 60-0. Nine touchdowns by Corkran, Dick, Shoop, Sitnik, Thompson, and Toner, with six suc- cessful kicks after touchdowns by Jack Rhodes, accounted for the score. WASHINGTON COLLEGE 41 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 14 Stage-fright before a powerful Shoreman eleven permitted Wash- ington College men to run up a four-touchdown lead in the first fif- teen minutes of play. For the re- mainder of the game the Eagles completely outplayed their rivals, holding them to 13 points, but the lead was too great to overcome. « 130 » A U CO LA SNNY HAMPDEN -SYDNEY 14 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 12 Badly battered by their opponents of the previous Saturday, eleven men, no more, completely outplayed and outfought their traditional rivals in Death Valley at Farmville. Two unfortunate incidents, arising from the inexperience of the Eagles, were responsible for defeat. A tie might have been earned had Jack Rhodes ' injury not kept his educated toe out of the game. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 6 UNITED STATES COAST GUARD ACADEMY 3 On October 19, the Eagles played their second home engagement at Central Stadium, and left the field victorious after an exciting battle. The Lifesavers were first to score when Cass drop-kicked a field goal. In the second guarter the Eagles scored when Toner out-punted Wal- dron in an exchange of kicks, and Dick carried the ball over in four plays. 131 A U CO LA • ■ . ? VUo . ST. JOHN ' S COLLEGE 19 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 7 The most disappointing contest of the year was this against Tody Riggs ' eleven. The Eagles were unable to get underway, and at the half the Johnnies led, 13-0. The Eagles threatened late in the third period, and scored as the fourth guarter opened, but before they could get into the Johnnies ' territory again, the Annapolis boys had run the count to 19-7. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 24 GALLAUDET 6 Though slow in starting, the Eagles scored in the second period, and came out after the half to trounce the Blues by adding another three touchdowns. Walter Dick, Ameri- can ' s sensational halfback, scored all the Eagle points, being ably sup- ported by the second team. Coach Young kept his regulars safe from possible injury, looking forward to the Randolph-Macon game. « 132 » A U CO LA RANDOLPH-MACON 34 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 7 Before a large homecoming crowd, the Eagles bowed to Vir- ginia ' s only undefeated, once-tied team, lead not by its famous back, Jimmy Bair, but by a comparatively unknown sophomore, Al Paliscak.

Considering the num- ber of injuries and illnesses which the boys encountered throughout the season, it wasn ' t so bad. Training started slowly, with but three veterans, Captain Wheatley, Edwards and Leith, reporting at first practice. Promising newcomers were Benscoter, Toner and Zink. These six men, however, were unable to stop Hampden-Sydney in the opening game. Three nights later Maryland State Normal was vanguished in an overtime game. After vacation when the Eaglets faced Lynchburg College, two new men appeared in the line-up. They were Len Harris, a capable per- former last year, and freshman Emerson Bartlett. With their aid a victory was hung up. Despite the strain of examinations, the Eagles were in good enough form to lick Gallaudet College. In this game Pete Sitnik made his varsity debut as sub- stitute for Benscoter. The Gallaudet clash terminated the promising winning « 135 » A U CO LA streak. In the next ten games Ameri- can University was on the losing end of the scores. Qn the night of March 7, the ccurtmen played their last game, and hung up their suits with a victory over the Alumni. The season ' s letter winners were: high point scorer Wheatley, his di- minutive rival Edwards, forwards Harris and Zink, centers Benscoter and Lee, and guard Bartlett. Others who saw service and devoted time and energy to the court cause were Gross, Sarles, Sitnik and Toner. George Scott was the Student Man- ager, assisted by Marvin May. Captain Wheatley, because of his fine spirit, able leadership, and fighting brand of play, was awarded the most valuable player trophy at the annual spring Athletic Banguet.

Many of the games are preliminaries for the intercollegiate contests in the gym. At the beginning of the series, it looked as if the Sophs would take the title, but the Senior quint rose steadily to top place.
