Religious clubs are playing a more important
part than ever in the student life on American
University's campus. All faiths work and play
together here, but they meet individually once
a week to discuss and learn about their own be-

students; The Canterbury Club, for Episcopal
students; and the Newman Club for Catholic
students.

THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY



EAGLE



With deadlines, leads, by-lines, and edi-
torials flying, the Eagle finds its way to
dorms, sorority rooms and fraternity houses
each week.

Ernie "Somehow you just don't look
right to me" Poore headed the staff for
the first semester with the assistance of
business manager Walt Diegel.

Second semester Joy "Whowhatwhere-
whenwhichwhyandhow" Jepson took over
the reins of editor with Al Stallone as busi-
ness manager.

The Mary Graydon Hall office became
the headquarters of the staff during the
second semester. It's greatest advantage
(besides being convenient) is its nearness
to the coffee shop for the traditionally
starving journalists!

Don't forget the precedent-setting telegram from

Yes - ah, assistant to the editor! Gee whiz kids

THE BIG TEAM



Although finishing the season with a 12-11
record, the Eagles managed to floor one of the
best ball clubs since the Mason-Dixon Con-
ference champions of 1950-51.

This record does not indicate the calibre of
the team, since they played one of the most
rugged schedules attempted by any A. II. team.
The Eagles played such formidable foes as Man-
hattan, N.Y.U., Navy, Penn State, Georgetown
and Fairleigh-Dickenson.



The hoopers were paced most of the season
by Mr. Outside, Captain Ray Daly. Mr. Inside
of the quartette was jumping John Selby, select-
ed all-Conference for the past two seasons. Al-
though hampered by injuries, Charlie Baer was
one of the team's mainstays. Slow-footed but
fancy-shooting Dan Greenfield was the outside
man on this fast shooting five. The other man
on the starting five was Carl Hevener, a home
town boy from Coolidge High, and an all-High
selection in 1950-51.



First Row: Ronnie McPherson, John Baird, Jim Wil-
liams, Bud Daly, Dan Greenfield, Wally Ryland, Charlie
