We didn ' t take long to learn — to the tune of the hickory stick wielded by the sophomores. Each noon rumors of a coming revolution 32 buzzed on the steps of Hurst Hall. But we were good sports about bowing and scraping before the illustrious upper classmen. Our ariety show at the pep rally created such a sensation that we were later starred in another skit, " The Little Man Who Wasn ' t There. ' " We joyfully obeyed the order to desist from wearing cuir emerald embellishments, disparagingly called " " green tags. " .At the funeral, our fondest memories were buried beneath the red earth of the pine groN ' c- until they returned the next day to haunt the cheerleader. Throughout the car wc ha e been growing from (.)b|ects of curi- osity and condescension into respected students. We clinched our reputation with our dance on April 1 3. Are we going to ha e fun next ear ! Wei 1 , we guess so ! 33 Nicholson.

At the first of school we put the freshmen in their place as they had never been put before. When the football season came, the varsity team was filled with many of our boys, who also carried off the class championship. " Hay Fever " would have never been the success it was without certain members of our class. 34 (Will you ever forget the blonde who kept you rolling in the aisles?) When exams came along, we took them for what they were worth, and are still waiting for the person to top the five-point average made by one of our group. And don ' t forget the good time we showed you one wind - night in March at the " " Mad-Hatter Hop. " " I ' es, the Sophomore class is indeed carr ing out the prophesy made for them in a way that will long be remembered here at American Uni ersity. 35 Prom Commmiee Fausold, chairman; lillison.

Even as sopho- mores, didn ' t we beat the weather man at our Winter Wonderland? White ties and tails ran a close second to tuxedos at our glittering Junior Prom. Although we dance merrily through life, we ' re not frivolous flib- bertigibbets. The forty-oners fill up a third of the football team, half the basketball team and a majority of the varsity debate team. Both the Eagle and Aucol. are edited by our classmates. We do more than our share of emoting on the stage and warbling in the choral clubs. Proud as we are of t)ur prominent classmates, we " re proudest of our honorary president, no less a personage than gang-busting Thomas Dewey. Throughout our three ears ue ' ve always had plenty of " oomph " " . . . and we ' re gaining momentum ! 37 Bettie Blumenthal MhLKOSt Park, Pi nnsylvania liiliiLalion Marjoric Webster, 1.2.

" A year ' s hard work, how- ever, transformed us into all-knowing Sophomores. .Another year, and we were sophisticated Juniors. Now we are the lofty Seniors, ready to leave, though not to forget, four full years of college life. We ' ve beaten all records for being different. We ' ve produced the first woman student body president and the first man to win two Touchdown Club awards. And witness our dances, climaxed by the Hawaiian Serenade, with refreshments served at your table. Old Timers now, we ' ve li ' ed to see our long-cherished hopes of a democratic college go ernment realized, and a Student Union Build- ing drive launched.

President Miller said " Go! " and the Student Union Drive was launched. .Amid tense debates that made the Constitutional Convention look like a Sunday school class, a new constitution was framed and passed. Our Council turned Dies Committee and investigated all campus organizations to get rid of " dead wood " " clubs. Freshmen, remember your first tour of the campus, the get-ac- quainted party, supper at faculty homes, an l the Chancellor " s tea? ' ou owe your happy introduction to college to the Orientation Board. Arbor Day left us dusty and tired, but wasnt it fun to see profes- sors and apple polishers working to beautify the campus ' Rushing the freshman cuties occupied the swarms of stags at the Big Brother-Big Sister party. The Homecoming Dance and Alumni Night found the old grads out-jitterbugging the undergrads. Besides arranging all-college social events, our Social Board has approved petitions for class dances, fraternity hops, and other affairs. Our policy is first come, first served. No Supreme Court decision was awaited more eagerly than the Publications Board ' s approxal of national advertising in college pub- lications, following years of stu- dent agitation. To demonstrate further our progressiveness, we were the first board to draw up a constitution and b -laws.

' Twas the ei litorial writers discussing the evils that lurk on the campus, and hatching plans for constructive criticism. When the Student Union fund was launched, we boosted the drive with lots of publicity ! To show our apprecia- tion for the beauties of life, we spon- sored the election of a " Sweetheart ' for the Homecoming dance. In the spring we stimulated the talents of creative writers by offering a five-clollar prire in a short story contest, won by Gordon Jowers. Among the new features are an alumni column and a resume of current ex ' cnts for students who read only the funnies. " My Daze, " " Guilt Off the Dome, " and " Tidbits, the official or- gan of the college government, have become permanent fi.xtures. .■ new high in ad ertising space was attained, thanks to our go-getting busi- ncss manager.

While our men ' s team has played host to such formidable opponents as Maryland University, Pittsburgh, Catholic University, and the Massa- chusetts Institute of Technology, the women ' s team has met teams from Ohio Wesleyan, Cape Girardeau, and other campuses. Later we turned globe trotters. Going south, we met teams at the University of North Carolina and participated in the Winthrop College Tournament at Rock Hill, South Carolina. We re- turned from the Pennsylvania State Teachers College Tournament with six victories and no defeats to our credit. We ' ve strengthened our jaw muscles on that tongue-twisting question.

Members of the League of Women Voters have racked their brains over three major issues — American neutrality, consumer education, and election procedure. Each girl worked with the commission that interested her most, ac- cording to whether she was a little dove of peace, a prospective house- wife, or a would-be Senator. The resulting galaxy of ideas produced such memorable meetings as our heated round-table discussion of j ropaganda techniques and a shocking expose of cosmetics. We seasoned our monthly meetings with field trips, including visits to the neutrality law debates in Congress and to the " Chamber of Horrors " which influenced passage of the Food and Drug Act. Striking clippings have attracted students to our bulletin board. A hilarious satire, " Peace Vlakes Her Bow, " was presented in assembly under our auspices.

A new coaehing staff failed to make u| lor the laek of material, as the Orange and Blue eleven went down fighting in game after game against bigger and more experienced teams. With nine returning veterans, the first team acquitted itself credit- ably, but the lack of reserves led to an inevitable let-down when the regulars were out of the game. Typical of the manner in which the Eagles lost was the opening game of the season, against Randolph-Macon ' s ' el- low jackets. The first three periods were fought on nearly even terms, with the score at the end of that time stand- ing only b-o in favor of the Jackets. I orced to remain in the line-up for the entire game, the regulars wilted and finallv -ielded two more touchdowns Letlermen: Brov n. B ham, Blanche Cohen. Dean, Flaherty, bo. .

Fumbles leading to two Johns Hop- kins scores in the first period more than nullified the spirited, last-half Eagle attack that netted one touchdown and kept the opposition on the defensi e for the remainder of the game. In the third contest of the year, Blue Ridge College was forced to take to the air to gain its 20-0 victory over the Eagles, the score being no indication of the closeness of the battle. Only in the final game of the year was A.U. com- pletely outclassed, when the powerful Swarthmore offensive ran up a 58- 0 count on the game but ox ' ermatched Eagles. In justice to Coaches Menke and Kaufman it must be said that they did everything possible to present a win- ning team, handicapped as they were with the lack of material. The players themselves are deserving of praise for their loyal efforts against impossible odds, and their classmates will remem- ber their spirit and fight long after scores are forgotten. nur BIG A.U. 93 Jl ni()R Rsi n Front row. left to rif ht: Richmond, Shumate.

TiCE was adequately served of the possible success of next year ' s Varsity basketball team according to the sterling performances of the 1939- 40 edition of the American University Junior Varsity. The little Eagles, though they faced a 96 difficult schedule tinat called for games with outstanding college junior ar- sities, District high school " fixes " and local independent clubs, flew high to register eleven victories against five defeats for their season total. Under the watchful eye of Coach Cassell several of the ja ee stars so improved their ball playing that thc - also regularly broke into the Varsity lineup.

After several weeks of strenuous practice, the Eagle mentor began to shape up a varsity squad of fourteen men around the nuclei offered by lettermen Captain Moe Brown, " Dutch " Schulze, Carl Byham, Ernie Webb, and numeralmen Barty Reese, Bruce Etchison, Ham (jewehr and Arnold Fine. New figures to the club besides last year ' s holdovers who earned a berth on the squad were Archie Norford, H. G. Morrison, Keene Roadman, Jim Hollis, Gilbert White, and Irwin Krasnoff. The Orange and Blue quintet made their de- but in the week preceding Christmas vacation, playing games with Bucknell, Georgetown, and Randolph-Macon. The Cassellmen suffered set- backs in their two clashes against the well- rounded Bucknell and Georgetown outfits, but gave indications of future potentialities when they trounced their traditional rivals, Randolph- Macon. Court action ceased during January BASKETBALL i because of the rigors of exams. Hostilities were renewed on Fehruar - 3 in an awa ' game with RanJolph- lacon, and once again American Uni- versity hoisted their victory colors over the op- posing crew. The Eagle aggregation appropri- ately presented Staff with a win over Delaware on his birthday, February 8. An away game at Western Maryland saw this short winning streak halted. After holding an 18 -ib lead at the half over Georgetown at the Tech gym, the Eagles succumbed before a last minute Hoya rally. The x ' arsity regained their winning stride with a tri- umph over Johns Hopkins at Baltimore; but in games at Juniata, Bucknell, Drexell, and Swarth- more, and a contest on the local boards with Western Maryland, the A.U. courtsters went into a five-game mid-season losing streak. The Cassellmen wound up their season by regaining their triumphing ways in brilliant fashion with wins over Elizabethtown and the Alumni on the home floor, to bring their season record to six wins and nine lo.sses. Fausold and Landsman TENNIS TENNIS, American University ' s most successful sport, has just got- ten underway as this book goes to print. This years team is built around the nucleus of Bud Fausold, Harold Landsman, and Ernie Webb, all carry-overs from last year ' s squad. Three new men appear- ing on the team to replace those lost due to graduation are Latimer Evans, Harry Nielsen, and Ernest McCarthy. The southern trip this year during the spring vacation resulted in a victory for old J . Pluvius, our men triumphing in the only match n ot rained out. Returning home, the Eagle netmen quickly reduced their batting average to .500 by succumbing to a powerful Cornell team. We are expecting great things from this years team, but since the team is composed of four juniors and two freshmen, we are even more eagerlv awaiting the 1Q41 season.

First row: Zimplc, Blanchard, McCrady, Edmonds, Newby, Price, Fellows, Werner, Cohen BASEBALL WHEN George Brown rose in student assembly in the spring of 1938 to move the resumption of baseball as an intercollegiate spring sport, few students felt the significance of that motion. But with the call for players in February 1939 twenty boys re- sponded and A.U. had its first intercolleigate baseball team in ten years. The gym resounded with the thud of balls. Soon the new drab gray uniforms of A.U. ' s diamond-men were seen at Georgetown. American University lost that first contest to Georgetown 1 3 10 4, but a step in athletic progress had been made with the reestablish- ment of baseball as a sport. After Georgetown came the season ' s lone win, a 9-7 victory over Johns Hopkins. Then contests followed with Wilson Teachers, Hampden-Sydney, Western Maryland, and George- town. The season score read: i win, 7 losses; Clay Price. Burke Herti, Bob Hall, leading batters; eighteen to twenty men participated; twelve men received A " s for their contribution to the revival of this sport. This year 24 men reported for an enlarged schedule of 14 games and indications show that baseball will be finally entrenched as a permanent spring sport. 102 Dick Gentle, coach; Jablonsky.

The Orange and Blue participated in the Catholic University games held for the benefit of the Finnish Republic. They made a noteworthy show- ing with Bob Dixon winning laurels in the bbo-yard run. The squad included Bill Adams, Jim Flaherty, Otto Streit- berger. Bob Dixon, and Bob McMillan — sprintsmen; Bob Little, Herb Woods, Allan Hinkle, and Le Roy Cook — distance- men ; John Jablonsky and Ken Fox — shotputters ; Doug Rollow — hurdles; and Cliff Evans — high jump. 103 INTRAMURALS DL RiNc; the past car the Pliysical Education Department carried out the most extensive intramural program in the history of the University. Athletic Director Staff Cassell and his student assistant Stanley Rauch held competitive tournaments in Volleyball, Touch Football, Basketball, Softball, Swimming, Ping-F ong, Pool, Ba lmin- ton, Tennis, and Shuffieboard. More than loo boys out of a possible 180 in the college partici- pated in the various events with awards being presented to the win- ners in their respective events. C " )utstanding in class competition were the Juniors who won both the first and second semester All-College Basketball Championships by not losing a single game. Members of the winning quintet coached by Arnold Fine included Bob Di.xon, Tommy Adams, Latimer Evans, Jim V ' ogts, John Trowbridge, John Jablonsky, Carter Edmonds, and Irwin Krasnoff.

In January, all pledges gathered to learn something of the histories and creeds of all five sororities. The next month, Panhellenic gave an evening of music, and March brought the Song Fest caroling, followed by a reception. At the end of the year, the Panhellenic Scholarship Cup was engraved with the name of the freshman fraternity woman earning highest honors. Discussions of improved rushing plans and meetings of scholarship chairmen and pledge trainers for the exchange of ideas brought the groups closely together, emphasizing our creed of cooperation rather than competition. Olympus rings with new determinations, new aspirations for Panhellenic ' s approaching fifth year. 129 Marshall Hozier Warner Drake Beard Rapp Bushong Esterline Steinle Richards Mitchell Klein Letz Smith Plitt Sattler King Engel Merrill Brooks Lundegaard Stewart Dawson Maki CaudiU 130 ALPHA CHI OMEGA Founded at De Pauw Uni ersity in 188} BETA RHO CHAPTER Established June j, igj7 Chapter Officers President Barbara . larshall Vice-President Virginia Hozicr Corresponding Secretary Sarah Anne Rapp Recording Secretary Nancy Warner Treasurer Beth Drake Members Rene Beard, Mary Elizabeth Brooks, Adelaide Bushong, Dorothy Dawson, Margaret Engel, Jane Esterline, Mary King, Barbara Klein, Marjorie Letz, Helen Lundegaard, Lillian Maki, Joan Merrill, Edith Mitchell, Marjorie Plitt, Jeanne Richards.

WliM |y r ' ' ■ ' V JBiHMHB m I3Q 140 THE 1940 AucOLA printed, bound and covered is in our hands — it awaits your praise or condemnation. It has progressed from an infant state when it consisted only of ideas to the gangling, awkward, copy-reading period — from an orgy of pasting to the engraver and the printer. It ' s been work all along the assembly line. Latimer Evans, Business Manager, has shown himself adept in the fine arts of cooperation and budget-balancing. Sarah Ann Rapp, for whom no task has been too difficult and none too humble, has proven herself a Literary Editor to sur- pass all Literary Editors. Ernie Webb and Bob Shenton and their corps of camera enthusiasts are responsible for picturing the A.U. ' ite in all his guises. Jackie Waldron and Rene Beard are responsible for the art work. Mar- garet Ellison and Sarah Stewart and the many others who gave time, energy and encouragement will surely wear gold crowns when they reach that section of heaven which Mr. Hoadley assures me will be reserved for all yearbook staffs. We have tried to make the book personal — to remind -ou of those hours in the chem lab, those jokes you he ard in the Eagle office, that banter in the library. To bring back " days that we treasure " — to enable you to relive those high spots which your metnor - cherishes — these are the aims of the 1 940 Aucola. Sincerely, The Editor.
