The American University- Library WASHINGTON, D. C. B. ' fe ' vc WITH THE LUCID TRUTH OF LENS AND FILM FEATURING THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS OF THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY WASHINGTON, D.C. THE STAFF OF 193 PRESENTS THE STORY OF A GROWING TRADITION OF IDEALS IN THE AMERICAN VIENNA L L L CO- FOREWORD . . . IvTANY mores and cus- toms have grown about The American University already, but in this, its thirteenth, year there has ansenanew credo. Spread- ing from mind to mind, gathering volume, a dis- satisfaction within the stu- dent body grew into a plea for a finer adjustment of student-faculty relationships. As naturally as day- light follows darkness, came the call for a restate- ment of the fundamental concepts of higher educa- tion. With the report of the Student-Faculty Com- mittee, a new tradition was born — a tradition of facing problems of undergraduate life on the plane of basic philosophies. . . . WNLY time can lend prestige to tradition, but time alone is powerless without the leaven of search- ing minds. Aucola is an attempt to portray, as clearly as camera and pen permit, the birth of this new tradition, the fostering parent of mature intel- lectual individualism. Aucola, copyrighted in 1938 by the business man- ager, James Donald Pettus, takes you across the broad and growing campus of The American University, to the faculty as they work, or ride their hobbies, to the departing Seniors, and to the Juniors who are just coming into their inheritance. Just as Life takes you to a party, so Aucola introduces you to the campus activities in their own environment, to the athletes on the field of competition, and to the fraternity men and women in their social comradeship. s Co s 81814 Dr. Lois M. Zucker, exponent of the classics, clog-lover, and gardener, came to the College of Liberal Arts in 1925, the year of its founding. And she brought to the student body the largess of a truly cosmopolitan temperament and abroad understanding. Her retirement this year marks the departure of a great personality. In 1926 Dr. Delos O. Kinsman came to the University. A kindly disposition, keen sense of humor, and a deep interest in students ' prob- lems have endeared him to the school. His re- tirement at the end of a dozen years of faith- ful service to high standards deprives The Amer- ican University of a distinguished scholar. DEDICATION IN honor of their long years of sincere service to the progressive ideals of The American University, Aucola is humbly dedicated to Dr. Lois Miles Zucker and Dr. Delos Oscar Kinsman. As you wander up onto the campus from the crystal spring, you see, framed in foliage, the first glimpse of the dignity that is Hurst Hall. . . In a few minutes you stand before the building itself — massive stone, Ionic columns — a fitting place for the faculty to hold forth; an inspira- tion for the undergraduates. . . Directly across the quadrangle, past the sundial, stands Battelle Memorial Library — scene of long study sessions and informal social gatherings; the nerve center of academic research. . . . If you proceed toward the chapel from there you presently stand beside the McKinley Budding, imposing center of fixed nitrogen research, leased to the government as a laboratory. . . . You may choose to enter the chapel by the side door — for there you will get this glimpse of Gothic architectural beauty that is Metropolitan Methodist Episcopal Church. . . . English ivy, a broken window mean Hamilton House, typical residence of enthusiastic college males. The forty men who live on campus sleep, study, and " bull " here. . . . Coming back to civilization, you approach the Women ' s Res- idence Hall, location of the dining hall and social parlor. Characteristic sound — the gentle whisper of the nickelodeon. . . . - Behind the W.R.H. squats the Gymnasium-theatre. You will remember it for tense basketball games, long hours of play rehearsal, or unique, gala dances. . . As you leave to wander back toward crystal spring and the grotto, you may see this near the Greek Theatre, — or you may see something else. . . m From this broad and growing campus turn now to the faculty as they work, or ride their hobbies . . . vBm, DR. JOSEPH M. M GRAY VjHANCELLOR GRAY, minister and lecturer, was born in Montgomery, Pennsylvania. His many interests vary from read- ing about Abraham Lincoln, whom he greatly admires, to watching Dickinson College win at football. Among his other hobbies are collecting books and etchings of every type, and studying the teaching of social science in Germany. Chancellor Gray ' s work gives him an opportunity to travel extensively. A year ago he went to Europe and at that time became intensely interested in Germany ' s political condition. Among his degrees are B.A., Wilhamsport Dickinson; B.D., Drew; D.D., Baker; Litt.D., Syracuse; S.T.D., Dickinson. George Benjamin Woods Dean oj ilu CoIIegi and Professor oj English B.A., Northwestern M.A., Ph.D., Harvard Cars— latest models only — contract bridge, literature texts, grammars, church work, sports — many interests oc- cupy Dr. Woods ' time out of office hours. The Wesley Heights Round Table, a discussion group engrossed in inter- national affairs, can also claim the Dean as one of its most enthusiastic contributors. As a member of the Board of Trustees of Foundry Metho- dist Church, Dr. Woods is an important force m the success of church campaigns as well as in voung people ' s groups. Dr. Woods likes sports, too, and is not only an enthusi- astic tan at A.U. games, but also enjoys tennis, archery, swimming, and fishing. Mary Louise Brown Dean oj Women and Associate Professor of English B.A.,DePauw; M. A. , Michigan Miss Brown ' s many activities on and off campus leave her little time for the pursuit of hobbies. The girls in the dorm are grateful for her solicitous care, for her attention extends from seeing that thev wear rubbers in rainy weather to giv- ing advice. She likes European travel, and has been abroad many times. Miss Brown attended summer school at Oxford Uni- versitv in England one year. Although Miss Brown gives a course in Victorian litera- ture, her favorite writers are Keats and Lamb. She likes out-of-doors, for she enjoys picnicking, helping to beautifv the campus on Arbor Day, and riding in the countrv. M iss Brown is a member ot Phi Beta Kappa. m John Edward Bentley, M.A., S.T.B., M.R.E., Th.D. Professor oj Philosophy To write books, to study people, and to live creatively are Dr. Bentley ' s aims in life. An authority on philosophy, he spends much time writing and lecturing. Between school terms Dr. Bentley lives at his summer home in Colorado. A progressive thinker — doesn ' t believe in final exams (theoreti- cally) — Dr. Bentley successfully conceals from students the exact na- ture of his own philosophy. Will Hutchins, B.A., B.F.A.

Walter Francis Shenton, B.A., M.A., Ph.D. Professor of Mathematics Possessing an excellent sense of humor, Dr. Shenton intersperses his math problems with rare wit and irony, and interesting anecdotes of his experiences. One of his most engaging diversions is music. He not only loves symphony, opera, and concerts, but sings excel- lently himself. And when he can get away from math and music, Dr. Shenton spends much of his time in studying stars. Delos Oscar Kinsman, B.L., M.A., Ph.D. Professor of Economics Dr. Kinsman has been an educator most of his life. Besides teach- ing economics at A.U., he has been a high school principal and has taught social science in normal school.

Dr. Anderson is very fond of German music and modern art. His most outstanding book is entitled TTie First Moroccan Crisis. He was honored by appointment as Chairman of the Program Committee of the National Historical Society of America. William Bultman Holton, B.S., M.S., Ph.D. Professor of Chemistry It ' s difficult to catch Dr. Holton unawares for he always has a ready answer on the tip of his tongue — probably why lab is so much fun. Dr. Holton likes sports, for he takes an enthusiastic part in faculty volleyball games on campus and is fond of fishing. In the latter interest he is president of the Bethesda Isaak Walton League. Theodore Andersson, B.A., M.A., Ph.D. Professor of Romance Languages Swedish, Italian, Russian, French, Spanish, all languages are an absorbing field to Dr. Andersson.

Travel and study abroad, the theatre, tennis, reading and his twins are a few of Dr. Andersson ' s other interests.

Student Couna The Class of 1938 i IELD DAY of Freshman year the Class of ' 38 defeated its Sophomore over- lords. Jane Getz was the first Freshman ever to debate on the varsity squad. Lew Frank became an assistant editor of The Eagle during this first year. In the December play, " Candida, ' ' two newcomers had leading roles. When grades came out, the Class of ' 38 had fourteen members on the honor roll — almost twice as many as any other class. The Freshman team was the only girls ' hockey team which did not meet defeat during the season; and Bee Craig made the all-D.C. hockey team. During the Sophomore year Thompson and Roberts carried on the dramatic tradition of the class, acting in " Is Life Worth Living? " Three members of the class were assistant editors on The Eagle, thirteen worked on The Aucola, Bernie Carroll proved to be the school ' s most popular musician, and Ruth Humphreys, social chairman, made a big success of the Sophomore dance. By the third year the promising sportsmen proved their mettle. Invaluable on the football squad were: Hanawalt, Applegate, Carlo, Hansborough, Win- slow, Dick, and Britton. Edwards, Harris, and Lee shone on the basketball court. Harris and Lee also were tennis stars. Members of the class directed many of the campus activities, heading nine organizations, including The Aucola and The Eagle; the editorship of The Eagle was given lor the first time to a Junior, Frank Diggs. The Class of ' 38 entered its Senior year with Olin Smith as president — his second year in this office; and Kathryn Taylor as vice-president — her fourth year in this position. Seniors continued to hold many important and responsible positions on campus. Lewis Frank, one of the outstanding members of his class, is sports editor of TIk- Eagle, columnist, champion ot the lootball men, and president of the Student Body . The men were victorious in the interclass touch football, volleyball, and basketball tournaments. Participating in dramatics were Thompson, Johnson, Christie, and Lee, who played the difficult part of Hamlet in the school ' s twelfth Shakespearian pro- duction. ■ THE CLASS OF MINETEEM THIRTY-EIGHT MARY AIKEN AT. 1IAK.

Frank Meloy Virginia Goff Catherine Dickey Richard Connelly Student Council Representatives Dorothy Loftis Charles Stewart Samuel Keker The Class of 1939 1RUE to tradition, the Juniors have given the Senior Class some close com- petition in extra-curricular activities. Taking places on the Student Council this year were Charlie Stewart, Dorothy Loftis, and Sam Keker. Sammy like- wise was elected to the regional executive council at the N.S.F.A. Conference this winter. The publications staffs listed Nellie Strong as editor of The Eyrie and James Donald Pettus as business manager of The Aucola with fourteen Juniors assist- ing on the staffs of these three publications. Debate, this year, claimed Walter Bastian, Donald Creech, Norman Leon- ard, Charles Stewart, Eleanor Belden, and Mary Louise Klaas. Prominent in Dramat were Catherine Knockey, Dorothy Loftis, Nellie Strong, Eliza God- dard, Sam Keker, Kimber Shoop, and Lansing Hall. Athletic interests are mainly football and track, it would seem. Football claimed Emerson Bartlett, Sammy Maize, Hal Toner, Kimber Sfioop, and Pete Sitnik — with Sammy Maize being awarded the " most valuable player " cup by the Washington Touchdown Club. Bartlett played basketball also, and participated in track along withjim Applegate, Gus Hertz, and Glenn Sweigart. The Chorus ranks were swelled by Dorothy Loftis, Virginia Omo, Muriel Bain, Victor Purse, Donald Creech, Nellie Strong. Dormitory house governments saw Hal Toner as president of Ham House, with Emerson Bartlett assisting on House Council. Constance Cooley, Eleanor Belden, and Charlotte Wells took an active part on House Council for W.R.H. The Junior Prom, at the Washington Hotel, April 22nd, was an outstanding social event of the season, closely followed by the " Sweetheart Serenade " on February 12th. Other positions of miscellaneous type included Kimber Shoop in the Stu- dent-Faculty Athletic Committee, Dick Callahan in the newly organized Stu- dent-Faculty Adjustment Committee, and Wilbur Parker as Student Comp- troller. As Freshmen we obeyed; as Sophomores we commanded; as Juniors we worked; as Seniors — who knows? •THE CLASS OF NINETEEN THIRTY-NINE ELIZABETH ACTON Salem, New Jersey Chemistry Wellesley College, 1, 2; Archery, 3.

Smith, Gendron Sophomore Class History J.RADITIOXAL rivalry between Frosh and Sophs, including the regular series of sidewalk decorations, sit-down strikes, and Hell Xight, all promptly and effectively subdued by Dud Rogers and his rules committee, commenced the class year. Activities were continued at Christmas time, when the group provided clothes, food, and money for a needy family. As its social contribution to the college calendar, the class produced some- thing novel in dances, a Barnvard Swing, with guests dancing in gingham and overalls amid an informal atmosphere ot slides and bay. Outstanding in publications this yeai were Sophomores Helen Miller as associate editor and Arthur Lawson as advertising manager of The Alcola, with Bervl Reed and Frances Brewster on the staff, and Charles Laughton up- holding his position as assistant editor of The Eagle. Ruth Shener was associate editor of T ewsnotes and Frances Brewster was a member of the staff. ith Jack Gendron and Douglas Parmentier plaving leads in both Dramat productions, Dud Rogers and George Brown holding their own in varsity foot- ball and basketball, the Sophs can certainly claim a large part in extra-cur- ricular life. 1940 I The Class of 1941 The Class of 1941 OFFICERS President Gordon Haines Vice-President Mary Louise Johns Secretary Margaret Marsh Treasurer Pierce Raynor Student Council Representative . Hamilton Geyvehr Johns, Haines, Marsh WlTH the " Big Apple " and the " Merry-go-round Broke Down, " with boys " sounding off " and girls with no " makeup, " for four weeks the Freshman Class was subjected to the Sophomore regime with Dud Rogers as a dictator and Hewitt and Brown as his able advisers. Making a fight for freedom, the Fresh- men staged a quick revolt, and fought their way from Hurst Hall to the library. But the real democracy did not come until the burial of the green tags, follow- ing which the Freshmen proved their true merit by entering whole-heartedly into college activities. Football players were John Jablonsky, John Bower, Hugo Schulze, Bob Hall, and Irwin Krasnoff. The basketball team had such men as Ernest Webb, Hamil- ton Gewehr, John Bower, George Riffenbary, and Hugo Schulze. Hugo espe- ciallv distinguished himself by making the city all-college team. The publications are also well represented by Freshmen. Writing for The Eagle are Kendall Angus, Addison Clay, Frances Cruikshank, Mary Curry, Gor- don Haines, Mary Hudson, Bill McClure, Pearce Raynor, and Sarah Anne Rapp. Distribution manager for The Eyrie is Mildred Palmer. On the staff of The Aucola are Adelaide Bushong, Sarah Anne Rapp, Edward Fowler, and Mary Hudson. Dramatic members of the class are Virginia Hubbs and Charles Davidson, who both took part in the play " Getting Married. " There were two big social events of the year. The dance in April was a marvel of rhythm and swing. And the Freshmen should be particularly proud of its party which it gave in February for the new Freshmen entering college. Such a welcome has never before been given to the new students, and it is hoped that it will become one of the traditions of the college. vucola now takes you to the campus activities m their own environment . . .

A Student-Faculty Committee was set up to act as a medium thr ough which conflicts and complaints of both faculty and students might be settled. This committee was composed of Dr. Bauer, chairman; Dr. Zucker, and Dr. Dennis, of the faculty; and Pauline Schloesser, Richard Callahan, and Gene Johnson, representing the Student Body. Nfwsnotes, A.U. ' s first news sheet, was a result of President Frank ' s plan to coordinate and combine the methods of making announcements to the student body. Mary Aiken served as editor with Ruth Sherier and Florence Yeager as assistants. This year ' s Student Assembly pro- grams have been notable features with many speakers of prominence addressing the students on subjects including birth control, C.I.O., and neutrality. A project for establishing a Student Union on campus for " get-togethers " during leisure moments was backed by the Student Council. To Bill Thomp- son goes the credit for getting things started. ALLOT CASTING Holier, Jensen George Brown and Chairman of Arbor Day 1938 Carol Laise The Eagle UNDER the direction of Carol Laise, the second woman editor, The Eagle in its thir- teenth year of publications has pursued and developed the policy inaugurated last year of publishing large-sized issues. The rather unusual circumstances of having a woman editor was further heightened by the fact that the business end of the news- paper was also handled by a feminine manager— -Kathryn Taylor. The attempt has been to improve the quality of the articles rather than to innovate. Yet, a place was found for such new features as Betsy Winter ' s " Americana, ' ' a culture column, Gene Johnson ' s " Pertinent Politics, ' ' a com- mentary on current affairs, and a sports column, " Spotlighting the Sports, " to replace Lew Frank ' s " Tidbits, " which moved to the editorial page as the student government organ. Choice contributions were received in the form of guest editorials from prominent Washingtonians, and a spicy column from Alumnus Eddie Hopper. Due to the daily appearance of Newsnotes, the emphasis, of necessity, has been shifted to feature material. This grow- ing inability of a bi-weekly Eagle to perform its true function as a newspaper has led to a consideration of reorganization, the results of which may establish a new publication set- up at The American University.

This board chooses the editor and busi- ness manager each year. The board also determines the financial policy, requiring that the budget be bal- anced each year. This organization is designed to keep The Aucola a permanent organization with ex- perienced people working on it. The editor and business manager are Juniors during the year they serve, but the other members of the staff may be drawn from any class in the college.

The Eyrie iHE EYRIE embarked on its third year as a thirty-six-page, two-column, liberalized publication. For the first time student-fostered artistic photography was introduced, and more varied contributions were encouraged. Every effort was made to exploit native talent in all its literary forms, and to give The Eyrie a ]ournalistic appeal for all types of students. Essays, short stories, poli- tics, poetry, parodies, have all made their appearance. Guest-writing from the faculty is one of The Eyrie ' s more recent innovations.

Dramat 1HIS year Dramat has again car- ried out the tradition of comedy in the fall and Shakespeare in the spring. The selection of plays was, as always, determined by a desire for variety and also by the demands of the members of Dramat. The group works each year for higher literary and artistic values, and the choice of plays is made with this in mind. Professor Hutchins has great faith in the capacity of students as actors and an unshakable conviction in the benefit of student production to a college education. The personnel is constantly growing because of this sympathetic attitude, and under Professor Hutchins ' excellent lead- ership and direction, Dramat has advanced rapidly this year. Bill Thompson In the spring of last year Dramat presented Shakespeare ' s " Two Gentle- men of Verona. " The principal male parts, those of Valentine and Proteus, were taken by William Thompson and Sherman Lee, while the two heroines, Julia and Silvia, were portrayed by Catherine Knockey and Jean Miller. The play was produced in excellent taste, as nearly as possible in the Elizabethan manner with fine results. It was thoroughly enjoyed by an unusually large audience. This fall " Getting Married, ' ' a high comedy by George Bernard Shaw, was presented. The cast, including William Thompson, Catherine Knockey, Eugene Johnson, Virginia Christie, Samuel Keker, Nellie Strong, and Jack Gendron, gave equally fine portrayals in this unusual comedy where the action was con- tinuous — no break whatsoever. This spring, in the usual Shakespeare tradition, " Hamlet ' ' will be produced. Dramat ' s officers, elected once yearly, are William Thompson, president; Nellie Strong, vice-president; Catherine Knockey, secretary; and Sam Keker, treasurer. This staff is always elected at the end of the year after the final performance. The executive staff of one production is always selected by the director. 813 Two Gentlemen of Verona May 14, 1937 Bv Wi KM Sh AKESPEARE Dramatis Personae Duke of Milan, father to Silvia Samuel Keker alcntine llham Thompson Sherman Lee Antonio, father to Proteus William Fox Tlmno. a foolish rival to Proteus James Waldo Eglamour, agent to Silvia in her tscavt Kimber Shoop Host, where Jitlu Ioagos Robert Thompson clouuisli servant to Valentine Odell Rosen Launce, the like to Proteus Homer Patton Panthino, servant to Antonio Douglas Parmentier Julia, beloved of Proteus Catherine Knockev Silvia, beloved oj Valentine Jean Miller waiting-woman to Jiih.t Virginia Omo Ursula, waiting-woman to Silvia Marguerite Woodberry Musician Helen Harkness Ontlairs . .

Ender Assistant Director Rowland Roberts Manager Nat Perrine DDING immeasurably to the atmosphere to be created, the College Orches- tra played appropriate program music for the fall dramatic production, " Getting Married, " the Shakespearean play last spring, " Two Gentlemen of Verona, " and this spring tor " Hamlet. " The repertoire this year has been confined to small orchestral arrangements of the best in music, including the modern as well as the classical composers. The " Three B ' s " of music — Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms — have been studied, as have Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Gounod, Wagner, Chopin, Pierne, Rubenstein, Strauss, and others. Sight-reading, a type of practice that confers maximum benefits in orchestral work, has been given special emphasis. Student players are thus trained to sharpen their musical perception, and are given an understanding of the ultimate ability of quick conception of composer ' s ideas. The College Orchestra will contribute to the regular Commencement En- tertainment Night, and will provide music for the graduation exercises. T- ' I M. Welch, Applegate, Director Roberts, Perrine, G.

Special arrangements of classi- cal and modern works have been studied, with emphasis placed on the com- posers ' broad conceptions and the most practicable and effective means of ex- pressing them. " Scream Your Challenge! " was composed by the director early in the fall as a theme for the band during the football season. Gaining recognition, it was played by the Capitol Theater Orchestra in a " Football Overture " as the lead song in a medley of local college tunes. In addition to its regular appearances at football and basketball games, the band presented a program at one of the student assemblies, consisting of Lamar Stringfield ' s overture " Cripple Creek " from the " Southern Mountains Suite, " several other concert pieces, and a number of popular marches.

The three organizations have been heard in numerous churches in the city and have always been well received. The Mixed Chorus, the most active of the vocal groups, set up an enviable record for itself. Besides functioning as the Chapel Choir and giving two entire choral chapels, the chorus appeared before the American Association of Uni- versity Women, the Women ' s Guild of American University, and sang in several grammar and high school programs in Wash- j f l ] B ington. On February 24th a concert was given in Pitman, New Jersey. The chorus was highly acclaimed in both places. An invitation to sing in Wanamaker ' s store in Phil- adelphia during Holy Week was accepted. On April 27th the chorus and the two Glee Clubs cooperated to present the formal Spring Concert in L.

This was done by means of talks and discussions led by noted religious men and by visitations to nearby places of worship. Among the churches visited were the Catholic Monastery, and Elder Michaux ' s famous congregation. During the last week before Christmas vacation the S.C.A. initiated a cob lection taken up at the regular chapel service to make Christmas a happier time for some of the needy families of Washington. It is hoped that this will become a tradition. The usual social program was also carried on, highlighted by Freshman Week, a Hallowe ' en treasure hunt, the fall picnic, and the annual observance of Mother ' s and Dad ' s Days. The usual special services were held in the Metropolitan Church. Thanks- giving and Christmas Vespers and Easter Sunrise Services were all well attended. This year there has been an increased feeling among the students that the S.C.A. puts on an interesting, informative program and therefore has a definite place among the strongest of campus organizations. In connection with Holy Week the Student Christian Association held Sunrise Services on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday in the Metropolitan Church. Lenonard Harris was in charge of the Thursday program, with Dr. A. B. Potorf as the speaker and Betty Ann Sewell was the soloist. On Friday, Marshall Sanders conducted the service and Reverend Keese addressed the students. The women ' s quartet sang. As the last program of its visits to Washington churches, the Student Christian Association sponsored a visit to the Franciscan Monastery on April 28th. Leonard Ha Schneider, Springer, Jahlonsky. D.

One of the highlights of the year was the presentation of the one-act play, " Bonnes Resolutions, " with Melvin Fox, Laura Talbott, Lloyd Schneider, and Josephine Jolliffe in the principal roles. The cast entered into the spirit of the comedy and cleverly enacted the parts of a quarrelsome family, typical in any country. Everyone enjoyed both the play and the refreshments following. The club was fortunate in securing M. Frank Andre Liotard, former mem- ber of the faculty, to address the group in one of the most interesting meetings of the year. A picnic sponsored by the club on March 22nd climaxed this year ' s activi- ties. Meeting at the W.R.H., a large group went to Spring Valley and enjoyed the food and fun there. Much of the success of the club is due to the willing cooperation of Mile. Zadolin and Dr. Andersson. Spanish Club OFFICERS President Kathryn Ingberg Vice-President Barbara Loomis Secretary Constance Cooley Treasurer Philip Bentley SPONSORS Senor Cabrera, Miss Ruberta Olds, Dr. Andersson 1HE Spanish Club, in an attempt to establish better relations between North and South America, has sponsored as speaker for each of its meetings some representative of a South American country. Alice Massey, an American Uni- versity student, spoke on her country, Argentina, followed at the next meeting by three Brazilian explorers who described, with the aid of slides, their trip to the United States via the Andes and Mexico. The series was completed by a talk on American opportunities in Chile by the Chilean consul, Francisco Arainbia. At Christmas, a play was presented by the second year Spanish classes with readings from the Bible by Senor Cabrera. A joint meeting of the Spanish Club and IRC. was held in January at which Senora Taylor-Burke, a member of the Flying Caravan, spoke on the South American personality.

Cooley, Steer, Finch Stone lo the athletes on the field of competition — " Scream Your Challenge " Gus Welch ATHLETIC DIRECTOR T the beginning of the football season, The American University placed at the head of its athletic department the former All-American quarterback from Carlisle. From the beginning Gus impressed football men with his sincere love of the game and its meaning. Always optimistic, Gus was not disillusioned by defeat, but continued to bring out the best in his charges. A firm believer in individuality, Gus made his plays of the type which gave players a chance to use their own initiative. Gus cannot be criticized for not producing a constantly winning team. Realizing the necessity of a few men carrying the burden of the entire season, he plans to shorten the season next year, enabling players to play the game of which they are capable. Knowing the handicaps of coaching in a small school, Gus has turned to American because he believes in sports for the benefit of the individuals play- ing them. BRIDGEWATER October 2, 1937 Taking the field with high hopes, the largest team in the history of Ameri- can University was out for victory. The game was but a few minutes old when the Eagles struck for the first time. They marched down the field, with a display of power and drive, in spite of the hot sun and the plucky Bndgewater eleven. The appearance of several of Coach Welch ' s plays was baffling to the visitors as several long gains were made by the use of them. Early in the second half the Varsity again pushed over a touchdown and added the extra point. Seen: Bndgewater, 0; A.U., 13. ST. JOHN ' S October 9, 1937 With one victory to their score, the Eagles looked forward to taking the Johnnies for the first time in their history. Our Varsity outweighed them and prcgame predictions gave us the game. As the game got under way there was no doubt as to which team was superior. The Eagles scored early in the first period and converted the extra point. A few minutes later they were back again at the goal line, only to be held on the one-yard line by the stubborn St. John ' s line. With the game in the closing minutes, the visitors completed two long passes that resulted in a score. Their kick for the extra point was good and the game ended in a tie. Score: St. John ' s, 7; A.U., 7. MT. ST. MARY ' S October 16, 1937 Journeying up to the Mount St. Mary ' s game the boys were going to meet an undefeated team, that finished their season by defeating many colleges of football rank. Playing minus three of their regulars, the Eagles were hampered in their running attack, and the big, blue Varsity which opposed them, by virtue of superior weight, pushed over three touchdowns. The game was fea- tured by the fight which the Eagles put up in the second half, as they held the hill-toppers at a standstill, then gained on them consistently, but were unable t0 SCOre ' Score: Mt. St. Mary ' s, 21; A.U., 0. WILLIAM AND MARY October 23, 1937 The morale of the team was low as we journeyed to William and Mary minus four of our regulars, and being hampered additionally by being unable to use four-year men. The Eagles were completely outclassed in every depart- ment of the game by the big green and silver clad opponents. Outweighed man for man the Welch men had difficulty in stopping the line plays of the opponents as they charged down the field. Coach Welch was unable to rally the boys as the lack of substitutes made it impossible. A last minute rally was stopped two yards short of the goal, as the team went down to defeat.

Taylor, Carlo, Howard, Davido Bishop, Maize, Bartlett DICKINSON COLLEGE .... October 30, 1937 The Eagles journeyed up to Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where the fame of the feats of their coach as an " All-American " still exists. Their hopes were high as they entered the game; that spirit was reflected by their actions as they stopped the " Big Red " varsity in its tracks. The line play of the small Eagles was superb as they stopped the vicious plunges. Our opponents then took to the air, throwing forwards, then laterals, with which the small Eagle backs were unable to cope. The lack of substitutes was very noticeable as Dickinson used three teams in completing the defeat. Score: Dickinson, 40; A.U., 0. RANDOLPH-MACON .... November 6, 1937 The highly praised Yellow Jackets came to the field with a veteran team. Their teamwork was the factor of the game, as the Eagles could not cope with their offense. Using power with deception, the Randolph-Macon men had little difficulty in pushing over their touchdowns. Outplayed but not out- fought, the Eagles turned the tide and by sheer determination pushed over a touchdown despite the powerful Yellow Jacket line. A second drive was then started, but was soon halted as the visitors put in fresh reserves. The closing minutes saw another attempt to score that was halted by the end of the game. Score: Randolph-Macon, 25; A.U., 7. JOHNS HOPKINS November 13, 1937 The Eagles met the Hopkins men in a sea of mud. Both teams were greatly handicapped by the condition of the ball, but the inspired Hopkins men were out to win what may have been their last football game. Using straight power football, they shoved over two touchdowns before the Welch men could retali- ate with one. Spurred on by this rebuke, the opponents doubled their efforts, which culminated in two more touchdowns and a decisive victory. Lacking in scoring power, the Eagles did not lack in fight, as the Hopkins men knew they had been in a tough football game when they left the field. Score: Johns Hopkins, 25; A.U., 6. HAMPDEN-SYDNEY November 25, 1937 Hampden-Sydney, after enjoying a very successful season, was not to be denied a final victory. In previous seasons the Eagles have given the Bermer- coached men some hard-fought battles, and they came to us with a determina- tion to win in spite of the fact that the Eagles are usually at their best against them. This ' was not true to form, as numerous injuries and lack of substitutes kept the Eagles from reaching their accustomed spirit. The game was a hard- fought battle and the score is no indication of the efforts extended by the Score: Hampden-Sydney, 19; A.U., 0. i. Ill I Rl 1 ADERS Jacobs, Hubbs, Livingston STUDENT ATHLETIC COMMITTEE 3ntton, G. Brown, C. Taylor, Lee, Parmentier Staff Cassell Stafford Cassell, B.A. lHE former American University sports star has returned to his Alma Mater as head basketball and assistant football coach. His work in football made him a friend of the entire football squad. With the football season completed, Staff settled into his favorite game, basketball. His excellence on the court as a player is now being overshadowed by his prowess as a coach. The school and the sports fans were all aroused at the victory over Catholic University in the second game of the season. Working with the old men and several new men, Staff welded them into an efficient machine that looked like the best team American University had had in several years. His confidence in the players and his sincere love of the game won him the respect of the whole squad, and instilled in them the will to win, which enabled him to finish the season with one of the best records made in our basketball history. With Staff at the head of our team, we at The American University can look forward to many cleanly played, hard-fought basketball games in the future. Basketball v_ OACH STAFF CASSELL called the first practice before football season was over. Here he began the work which was to play a large part in the suc- cess of the season. Using Bartlett, Brown, Hickey, ancl Rogers as a nucleus, Staff started the team in action. He then issued a call to the student body for players and went through the applicants by having them play on the junior varsity, and promoting those who displayed talent. In this way Staff placed five Freshmen on the squad, who promise to do big things before their basket- ball days at American University are over. With the team facing one of the most difficult schedules in years, Staff hurried the boys into shape and taught them his system of offense. This system consisted of a fast break, and a corner cut and block type play which the boys soon mastered. Their use of it, despite the loss of Hickey, gave them the first game with relatively little difficulty. Staff allowed the fellows to use their own initiative in the games and was always open to suggestions. This spirit of cooperation and his appreciation of the players gave rise to a teamwork that is possible only through understanding teammates. Throughout the season Staff ' s principle was play hard, but clean. His guidance along this line was very noticeable as the Eagles fought for the ball or came out of a tangle under many difficult situations as they played against several rough teams. The highlight of the season was the victory over Catholic University in the second game the boys played together. Following closely behind this was the vic- tory over Randolph-Macon, which was the first time The American University has beaten them in several years. All in all, the season was one of the most successful in many years. The record of wins and losses stands for itself, and the season will long remain in the memory of the players. As the trips to the opponents were always interesting and the results of the games were usually the right kind which gave rise to a spirit on the squad that will long be remembered.

To see the blue and orange flash into the final stretch with other colors pressing closely, and to see a tight finish with American right there in the heat of the race, is a thrilling experience. Our track men have worked hard to make the sport important to the school. A cinder track has made practice much easier and more beneficial this year under the careful guidance of Coach Gus Welch. The team has long needed these cinders. Returning letter men, Bob Hill, Jim Applegate, Pete Sitnik, and Gus Hertz, led the track squad back to the spring turf and the fresh, vernal atmosphere of the track. Other veterans returning are Douglas Rollow, Johnny Stephen- son, Fred Horton, Leroy Cooke, Bob Livingston, and Olie Smith. New prospects, including especially members of the Freshman Class, show much promise for the successful future of track at A.U. Coach Welch booked a full schedule of three dual and two triple meets this season, besides entering a team in the Penn Relays. The last meet is to be the Mason-Dixon Conference at Baltimore. Perhaps next year, with the wealth of material shaping up now, we can give any team a run for their money. In any case, the pluck and stamina of those boys representing American on the field will prove that they have the courage to fight hard. L. Harris, Taylor, H. Hudson, Lee, May, Dr. Holton Tennis -FOLLOWING a long series of wins climaxed by a decisive 7-2 victory over Lynchburg, American University ' s 1937 tennis team ended their very successful season of eleven wins against five losses by winning the Chesapeake Conference Championship for the 1937 season. An earlv season start, with little practice due to bad weather, resulted in losses to Tufts, Swarthmore and Richmond. Each school, however, was represented by unusually strong teams. As the season progressed the Eagle netmen began to hit their stride and won nine of their last ten matches, ending the season with an 8 to 1 defeat of Randolph-Macon. Walker Winter, playing number five position, captured net honors by winning nine out of his last ten matches, while Sherman Lee and Len Harris, playing alternately number one and two positions, upheld the tougher end of the schedule by winning eleven out of sixteen and nine out of fourteen single matches, respectively. Howard Hudson showed greatest promise of future tennis glory, while Carl Taylor, Wes Sarles and Jimmy Hewitt alternated at number six position in singles and doubles. Walt May, the steadiest player on the team, let his opponents make the errors, and he ended the season with wins in nine out of his sixteen singles matches. RESULTS OF THE 1937 SEASON Bridgewater . .

Greater interest among the men of the college in this interclass and interfraternity com- petition was apparent from the number of men who turned out to compete for class and individual honors in the numerous and varied sports offered. Football opened the season, and after several closely contested games, the Seniors emerged as the champions. Howard Hudson was crowned champ of the ping-pong tourn ament, while Albert (Piddle) Shaw, a last year ' s finalist, succeeded in winning the annual horseshoe contest. An early frost brought an abrupt end to the tennis tournament, so indoor sports came into their own when the Seniors scored their second win of the year by annexing the volley- ball championship. The second semester opened with the interclass basketball series, in which the Seniors were this time defeated by a strong, never-say-die Freshman team, who scored the first interclass victory of their college career. The interfraternity competition got under way with a " round-robin " bas- ketball series, in which the four fraternities and the independents participated. When the smoke of the battle had cleared away, Alpha Theta Phi was dis- covered to be the winner and champ. This was followed by the interfrater- nity football, volleyball, and baseball contests, while interclass competition continued in speedball, baseball, swimming, a foul shooting contest, and the annual Field Day. The new game of Coach Gus Welch, called " Welch Ball, ' was introduced, and proved to be an interesting diversion. DORIS SNODGRASS, B.S., M.S. Director of Athletics Miss Dons Snodgrass is doing exactly what she wants to do by directing girls ' athletics. She has always been interested in sports, and much of her time in the summer is spent on the Great Lakes, where she enjoys swimming and sailing. Miss Snodgrass graduated from Oberlin College and took her graduate work in Welleslev. Women ' s Intramural Sports 1HIS year, interclass competition spirit was not strong; after a few games, two teams were selected to play three games, and the hockey season closed with the defeat of the Orange Team by the Blue Team. Archery — Archery continued through the fall and showed improvement. Many more women turned out for archery than in previous years. Edith Olsen and Margurite Woodberry rated high. Biuhnniti ' H — The English game continued as one of the most popular sports offered. In the class contests Helen Brundage won. The annual badminton tournament was held. Ping-pong — A ping-pong tournament is held every spring. Many signed up for it. Basket kill — Two picked teams played against each other on Alumnae Night, March 1 1th. The Blue Team defeated the Orange Team by a 25-15 score in the A.U. gymnasium. The Alumnae Team defeated the Varsity Team, 35-19. Individual honors go to Bryant, Hawks, and Shepard. The sorority line-up places Alpha Chi Omega ahead, with Delta Gamma, Alpha Phi tied for second place. And to the fraternity man and woman in their social comradeship . . . Dr Woods, Dr. Holton, Mr. Smith O. Smith, L. Frank, L. Harris, W. W. Thompson Omicron Delta Kappa r ROM the inception of the Brahmin Honor Society in 1931, its purpose was " to recognize outstanding qualities in student activities, leadership and service, tempered by scholarship and character. " From 1931 until 1936 both men and women were elected to membership in Brahmins. When the membership in Brahmins became limited to the men of the cam- pus, the society began to petition Omicron Delta Kappa, national honorary fraternity, which " recognizes men who have attained a high standard of effi- ciency in collegiate activities, brings together the most representative men in all phases of college life, and links members of the faculty and student body of the institution on the basis of mutual interest and understanding. " On May 20, 1937, the Brahmin Honor Society made a formal petition to ODK, and was awarded the Alpha Omega Cir cle of Omicron Delta Kappa on March 12, 1938, when Dr. Robert Bishop, Dr. R. C. McDanel, Dr. Wil- bur Norcross, and Dr. R. D. Mclntyre conducted the installation ceremonies in the Metropolitan Methodist Church. The charter members include: Dean George B. Woods Sidney Sachs Dr. William B. Holton William Powell Mr. Paul Smith Maynard Eicher Mr. Arthur Flemming Carl Stevens Richard Hummer Ohn Smith William Leith William Thompson Lewis Frank Leonard Harris Delta Sigma Rho DELTA SIGMA RHO, national forensic frater- nity sponsoring outstanding speech activities on the campus, elected two new members in 1937: William Powell, ' 37, and Jane Getz, ' 38, on the basis of high scholarship, two years ' active work on the varsity squad, and participation in at least three intercollegiate debates. First place in the annual all-university speech contest was won by Gilber Ramirez, with Addi- son Clay placing second and Charles Stewart third. Under the direction of Mr. John Crawford and Harry Amtower, a Student Speakers ' Bureau was launched to furnish competent students actual speaking experience before community organiza- tions. Public discussions, debate lectures, panel discussions, open forums, and humorous and dra- matic readings are included in the repertoire of the bureau. The Spring Poetry Speaking Festival was also under the sponsorship of Delta Sigma Rho. Officers of The American University Chapter are: President, Jane Getz; vice-president, C. Herschel Jones, formerly affiliated with the Ohio Wesleyan Chapter; secretary, Mary Lesta Wake man. Dean Woods is the facultv adviser. Pi Gi amma Mu Praiienl Sherman Lee ViwPrcsiicn Frances Garrett Secretary-Treasurer .... David Huelster iHE Gamma Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu, national honorary social science fraternity, was installed at The American University in 1931. As its purpose, the fraternity chose the promotion and rewarding of scientific study of social questions. Last year member- ship was extended to students majoring in history, in addition to the usual membership including those majoring in economics and political science. Active membership at the beginning of the year included Dr. Lowell F. Huelster, Dr. Delos O. Kinsman, Mary Akin, Florence Birdseye, Marian Coen, Frances Garrett, Sherman Lee, Isabelle Noble, and Frances Williams. New members elected this year are Dr. John McConnell, Dr. Allan Fisher, Kimber Shoop, Leon Bick, Mabel Wright, Charles Stewart, Emerson Bartlett, Harold Boud- man, Norman Leonard, and Carol Laise. Aiken, Garrett Lee M. Coen, Noble Birdseye, Williams Wright Cap and Gown IN December of 1936 the Cap and Gown Society came into existence. It was organized as an honor society for Senior women outstanding in scholarship, leadership, character, and service. With Margaret LeMasters as its able president, the society devoted almost the entire first year to organization. This year Cap and Gown is composed of five members — Getz, president, Maris, Laise, Taylor, and Wright. Among its undertakings have been the Backwards Party for all new women in the fall, the tea for new women coming in the second semester, and the Charm School, designed to develop charm, personality, and co-etiquette. Four prominent women in Washington spoke at the school on the subjects of beauty, clothes, manners, and health; they were Dr. Louise Taylor Jones, Miss Dorothy Principe, Mr. Charles H. Corlett, and Mrs. William Fisher. The society ' s purpose is to investigate the needs of the university women and to put into operation such activities as will satisfy them. As a goal, affilia- tion with Mortar Board, the national senior women ' s extra-curricular honor society, has been chosen. Laise Mans College Honor Society President Dr. Glenn F.

On October 2nd, at the Pi Delta Epsilon national convention, held at George Washington University, the publications honor fraternity was accepted into membership. The formal installation and initiation was held De- cember 9th. Women were admitted to Pi Delta Epsilon this year, by an amendment of the con- stitution at the national convention. With this, women who are prominent in campus journal- ism are given a chance for honor. The charter members of The American University Chapter of Pi Delta Epsilon are Mary Aiken, Richard Callahan, Kirkley Coulter, Frank Diggs, May- nard Eicher, Lewis Frank, Jane Getz, Frank Hoadley, Worthington Houghton, Daniel Hild, Joseph Masi, Rowland Roberts, Charles Six- bey, Nellie Strong, Kathryn Taylor, and Ray- mond Wrenn. This year Pi Delta Epsilon published the annual publications honor roll, and for social events sponsored a publications dance, March 12th, and the annual spring publications ban- quet at which the editors and business mana- gers of the coming year were made known.

Aside from this, advanced scientific meetings and social meetings are held regu- larly also, and once each semester an open forum is held at which some popular scien- tific topic is discussed. Members, elected from the biology department, are chosen on the basis of superior work and a genuine interest in science. At the beginning of the year membership included: Walter Edwards, Lemuel Fraser, Marian Johnson, Virginia Omo, Kathryn Tay- lor, and Adele White. During the second semester Jim Applegate, Harnette Christie, Joyce Geiger, and Dr. Lindsey were added.

Its first function of the 1937-1938 term was to draw up the rules under which rushing was to operate. After a smooth rush season, the group blended its effort with those of the Pan-Hellenic Council in sponsoring the annual Interfraternity Formal Dance, which was held on December 3, 1937. The purpose of the organization is to further the interest of the members ' fraternities and to help to bring about a healthier condition among both fraternity and non-fraternity men on the campus. Although an infant under its present constitution, the Interfraternity Council has the hope and the potentiality of becoming one of the leading organizations of the college.

Under the present financial set-up, the fraternity has a building fund, a nationalization fund and a policy of no assessments to members. Social activities for the year got under way with an after-dance party on October 31st in nearby Virginia. A banquet at Childs followed by a smoker on November 17th, and the annual Founder ' s Day banquet in the college din- ing hall on November 23rd, plus a swimming party at the Shoreham.

This year a bi-weekly fraternity paper, the Lambda, with J. Franklin Diggs as editor, was begun, which includes news, plans, suggestions, and humor. Monthly social functions were held throughout the year. The week-end parties were held at Annapolis, and other functions were in the form of swim- ming parties and get-togethers. Second semester officers were elected in February. These consisted of Lindsey Branson, president; Frank Diggs, vice-president; Peter Sitnik, secre- tary; and John Stephenson, treasurer.

Hence the record of this organization has been brief, but impressive; every branch of extra-curricular activity has found expression here. The former president of the Sophomore Class, the president of the Junior Class, and the Student Comptroller are fellow-members. The Chorus and Glee Club, athletics, varsity debating, dramatics, and publications have found talent from the rank of the " Phi Eps. " Scholastically the fraternity has made a high rating; at its inception it out- ranked its nearest competitor for semester honors and is at present pacing all fraternities. The aims of Phi Epsilon Alpha are closely connected with the future of The American University. It is the earnest desire of the fraternity that it may foster the policies and ideals for which the school stands. As it gains firmer footing and wider experience in the scholastic-social world, Phi Epsilon Alpha is determined to work cooperatively and creatively for the good of the entire student body and faculty.

Smokers, bowling parties, picnic outings, and an extended week-end stay at Annapolis Roads Club comprised the program. Informal get-togethers twice a month were continued for the remainder of the year. The fraternity informal was held at the Annapolis Roads Club in honor of a group of rushees. Corsages were given to the girls as party favors. Numerous joint gatherings were held with the George Washington Uni- versity Chapter at their house. Thanksgiving evening, Epsilon Triton helped entertain visiting brothers from Gamma Triton of the University of Southern California at the Lambda Chapter House. Founder ' s Day banquet was held March 15th at the 2900 Connecticut Avenue; Surgeon General Parron was the principal speaker. The fraternity had its annual Magenta and Silver Formal at the Washing- ton Golf and Country Club on April 23rd. Winslovv Fuchs Edwards Boyd W. W.

At the beginning of the year a tea was held in the Women ' s Residence Hall for all new women. In March the council sponsored the annual songfest to interest the student body in the writing of original songs. Three prizes were awarded in the contest. To encourage scholarship, the Panhellenic Council offered a silver cup to the Freshman fraternity woman having the highest scholastic average for the year.

Since then sixty-three chapters have been formed; of these, Beta Rho at American University is the sixty-second. First rushing of Beta Rho Chapter met with very pleasing results. On the twenty-third of October twelve of the American University girls spent a de- lightful week-end at the Beta Delta Chapter House at William and Mary Col- lege. At the Homecoming fame on November 6th, the chapter gave orange and blue shakers to aid in the welcome of the University Alumni. The informal dance, held at the Wesley Heights Club on December 10th, was very success- ful. Three more girls were pledged in February. March 1st, known as Hera Day to all Alpha Chi ' s, was recognized by the entertaining of children from the Community Center at the Zoo. A Golden Jubilee tea for all Alpha Chi Omegas in Washington and Baltimore was held in honor of Mrs. Morrison, one of the first presidents of Alpha Chapter, on Tuesday, March 15th. A fitting conclusion to the year ' s activities was the formal dance held at the National Women ' s Country Club on April 8th.

LPHA PHI international fraternity was established in 1872 at Syracuse University. In the autumn of 1937 the thirty-seventh chapter, Beta Xi, was installed at The American University. This year has been a busy one for the new chapter. The formal installation banquet of Beta Xi was held early in October at the Mayflower Hotel. Shortly afterwards the Alpha Phi Alumnae of Washington held a reception for the new chapter members and their families at the Women ' s Residence Hall. After rushing, the alumnae entertained the members and pledges at an in- formal evening party. December brought the informal dance at the National Women ' s Country Club. Thoughts turned to others during the Christmas sea- son; the sorority contributed to Gordon Hittenmark ' s Doll House, and gave toys to hospitals. After midyear exams came the initiation of the new pledges and the formal initiation banquet at the Hotel Raleigh. Several " at homes " and sorority func- tions have been held in the chapter room during the season. The year ' s activi- ties were brought to a climax in May with the formal dance at the Washing- ton Golf and Country Club. V. Christie Strong Campbell L. Hall BelJen Gross Paddock B.

A visit from the Province Secretary, Mrs. J. Norman Ingerle, was the occa- sion for a tea and luncheon early in November. Later in the month the chapter held its informal at the National Women ' s Country Club in Maryland. With Christmas approaching, the group became philanthropical and helped a poor family. In contrast to this they were entertained by the pledges at a party at the home of Tina Marsh. The girls got together during the holidays for a Chinese luncheon. In the nature of a reward for standing first scholastically on campus, the Washington Alumni Chapter entertained the active chapter with a supper at the Wesley Heights Club. March 12th was the date of the annual Founder ' s Day banquet, which was preceded by the initiation service. The chapter concluded its activities for the year with its spring formal held on April 8th at the Washington Golf and Country Club.

JT HI MU was the first fraternity on the campus to become national. In 1933 Phi Sigma Beta became the Gamma Delta Chapter of Phi Mu. This year the rush season opened with a formal tea, followed by a circus party, an Alice-in-Wonderland at-home, and a hay-ride to Rixey Mansion. Pledge Day a chow-mein luncheon was given in the room for the new pledges. A few nights later a formal dinner with corsages for the pledges continued the celebration. Beth Smith entertained the group at a Hallowe ' en party, and in November, the pledges gave a tea for their mothers to meet their big sisters in the fraternity. At Christmas time the fraternity furnished a poor family with clothes, food, toys, and money. For the Homecoming dance Phi Mu fixed up the men ' s ping-pong room in the gymnasium with rugs, lamps, chairs, and mirrors so that it could be used as a powder room. The idea was such a success that one group or another has taken over the work at every succeeding dance. The spring formal, the senior ' s breakfast, the Founder ' s Day banquet at the Kennedy Warren completed the year ' s activities. Banks Omo M.
