The dark-red field of our flag symbolizes hu-
man endeavor and conflict; the University itself
is symbolized by the "compass of human life with
its great needle pointing steadily at the lodestar
of the human spirit," a thought expressed by
Woodrow Wilson at the dedication of the Grad-
uate School in 1914.

ADMINISTRATION



IN TWO YEARS . . .




In two short years as President of The Ameri-
can University, Dr. Hurst Robbins Anderson has
engineered many changes. The merging of the
undergraduate divisions, the newly-painted
buildings, and the large Freshman class are
testimony to his work. We, the students, are
grateful to Dr. Anderson for these improve-
ments. We also realize that he has just begun
to j3ut his plans into effect, and we are willing
and eager to lend him our aid in the growth of
our university.

CLASSES



THE CLASS OF 1954



We are now leaving the University with which
we have lived and grown for the past four years,
and we are taking with us many memorieG.

Four years ago we were introduced to our
school and its traditions — the coffee shop with
the juke box playing "The Thing," capping and
the snake dance, Petro's coffee, all-night carol-
ling, a Mason-Dixon victory, and exams in the
stiff lines of chairs in Clendenen.

We soon became seasoned Sophomores. That
was the year of the big snowstorm the night of
"Seasons Greetings." It was the year of Paul F.
Douglass' resignation, of "Spring Bit Me" and of
the science show with its exploding volcano.

We moved to upper classmen and welcomed
Dr. Anderson and his family to the President's
house. "Pop" Cassell became Assistant to the



President, and "Dutch" Schulze led his Eagles to
the Mason-Dixon finals and a heart-breaking loss
to Loyola in overtime. This was the year of
elections and the all-night session in Leonard
with WAMU bringing us the returns. We re-
member the Sibley hospital fracas and "the
bugle blows at eight."

We entered our last year at A.U. When we
returned last fall we were greeted with new
paint, a library that was at last a library, and a
tremendous Freshman class. We were sorry to
note the passing of the old coffee shop, but soon
felt at home in our bedroom-pink "Eagles Nest."
The green growing things in the dining hall
took more time to get used to. At the basket-
ball games we cheered with our youngest cheer-
leader, Kathy.

We leave now, pushing these memories aside
to make room for what is to come.



Senior Class Officers: Sam Albert, President; Miriam
Thompson, Vice President; Jean Sherwood, Secretary; Al
Shiite, Treasurer.

THE CLASS OF 1955



Almost, but not quite to that enviable "last
year" position, the juniors made the most of their
in-between-ness. There was the sudden realiza-
tion that they had only 2 more years and that
it perhaps might be wise to check their require-
ments. With this awakened interest in academic
work there was still no lack of membership in
activities. The choice of class members for
"Who's Who" brought the usual fhnry of excite-
ment. Their fine work on the annual Jimior-
Senior Prom was well received by the graduating
seniors and added the final mark of credit to
the Class of 1955.

THE CLASS OF 1956



Neophytes bowing before the all-powerful Soph President, Brock
Morris.




Sophomores — Freshmen dreaded them, and
with good cause, but with the end of Kangaroo
court, they had won over many friends. Skit
night was proof of the sophs' ability to produce
an enjoyable show.

THE CLASS OF



1957



Freshman Class Officers: Toni Nuerenberg, Vice Pres-
ident; Massey I.oughman, Treasurer; Dick Horn, Pres-
ident. Not shown: Ann Barnard. Secretary.



Take new faces, add hesitant smiles, decorate
with signs, top with an A.U. dink and behold! —
another freshman. Armed with Handbooks and
a wary eye for Sophomores, members of the Class
of 1957 looked to be typical college frosh. How-
ever, the group soon showed itself to be any-



thing but typical. A wide variety of ability made
the Talent Show "one of the best." Refusing to
rest on their laurels, the freshmen bedecked the
gym with blue and silver for the Sno-Ball. Taken
together, it made an imposing record for the
newcomers.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL



Last Spring the campus and downtown schools
elected their separate councils. When the Un-
dergraduate School was formed, and these two
schools were merged, the councils joined as the



Student Council for the Undergraduate Division.
They have had an increased responsibility in the
allocation of student funds, and in the life of the
undergraduate students.
