Dickinsonian Newspaper

Dickinsonian, January 19, 1940

Samuel McCartney is tapped to replace Paul Gorsuch as editor-in-chief of the Dickinsonian. The General Alumni Association publishes its annual report, revealing that there are 5,161 living Dickinson graduates--at least one in every U.S. state and 27 foreign countries. A plan for all fraternities to cancel their spring formals and donate all money to be used for them to an all-College inter-fraternity ball is rejected outright.
