|Description||The article: "Students' banquet" relates to the new community hall and gymnasium that were opened on December 20,  at Lincoln Memorial University, with "more than five hundred students, teachers, workers and friends of the University" present at a banquet held on Saturday night in honor of the campus football team. In addition to President Matthews, the two main speakers at the event were Dr. John Wesley Hill, chancellor, and Myers Y. Cooper, a prominent businessman of Cincinnati and member of the Board of Directors of the University. On Sunday morning, Chancellor Hill delivered the dedicatory sermon on the new building and [Trustee] Myers Y. Cooper conducted vesper services in the community hall later that evening. During the banquet event, LMU President Matthews announced that Frank Turner would lead the 1925 football team in his third year as captain. The sixteen members whom were presented with "L" sweaters are named in the article. T. B. Ford, "representing the faculty, made a brief talk" and Guy Easterly, for the student body, "expressed the appreciation of the students to those who had made the community hall and gymnasium a reality." The decorations of the hall was "supervised by Prof. LeRoy Johnson and Miss V. W. Buffum, "presented a festive appearance with its decorations of Christmas greens, its festoons of red and green, and its array of school pennants." The article cites that the "songs, yells, and music by the college and novelty orchestras were a large part of the evening's program."
