The Yellow Journal. vol. 1 no.2 (no date); May 15, 1925; May 4, 1926; May 11, 1928; May 10, 1929.
Published under the auspices of the Sigma Upsilon National Literary Fraternity. This paper, which the editors proclaim "will give publicity to the true state of affairs on the campus" and "will razz those men who deserve to be razzed" was published "whenever a state of affairs [came] about on the campus that such a paper [was] needed."
The Yellow Journal
consists of satires on campus life, the Playmakers, faculty and administrative
figures, fraternities, and a large number of what seem to be personal
or inside jokes. Nearly one entire issue is devoted to news and jokes
about a student named Ed Hudgins.
