partment of Daniel Baker College.
The ensemble work nhowed care-
ful study and wan given with n
depth of feeling that left a deep
Impression on the 'listeners.
Especially beautiful were the
numbers "Bethlehem" and "Tho
Virgin'; Lullaby." Tho solo parts
of these numbers wore sung by
Mr. J. ft. Denman Mrs. Harris and
Miss Edna Germany.
Mrs. Denman'fl voice was beau-
tiful 1b- quality nnd volume. Miss
Germany's voice was round and
full and could easily bo beard above
tho choir that accompanied her.
In tho arl.i "And There Were
Shepherds" Mrs. Stoke displayed
a voice of beautiful quality und
sang In a manner that was a credit
to herself and her Instructor.
The Central Methodist choir un-
der tho direction of Mr. Kllngstedt
has become one of the Uvest and
most industrious musical organisa-
tions in Ilrownwood. A cordial in-
vitation Is extended to all Metho-

First Team m Seven Yean Now Working Hard.
Atter an absence from inlrrcollcg-$liolliam has only one letter man to
late basket ball competition since the
eur precrtling tne worm war1 me
Hill Billies started p-nctlce last night
with the intuition of developing a
winning team to mark their re-en-trnuce
into this Held of spurt.
I'raelht at Mv-mnrfttl Hull
In the absence of r. Gymnasium the
Hilt Billies are working out on the
court at the Soldiers' nnd Sailors'
Memorial Hall. It is the hope of the
college officials to have the Daniel
Baker Gymnasium ready for the lias-
ket ball season nextve.jr. Last week
the 'team worked Ynit In'thc High
School Gymnasium but' since that
time the Memorial Hall was secured
and the team is going through stiff
workouts In an attempt to gel in form
at the earliest date possible.
About twenty candidates answered
the first call for the cage team and en-
tered Into competition fur berths on
the squad. Coach Higglnbothaiu has
a hard bill to pull this year. With-
out a regular college gymnasium tor
practice with the loss of several weeks
practice by getting such a Lite start
and with a Mpiud of inexperienced
chances for the team would look
slim to an outsider. Coach Illggin-
whom our Alma Mater is named. Just
a case of slmitartly of names. How
many know the story of the life of
Daniel Baker for whom our college Is
named? There are several copies of
the book "The Life and Labors of
Dank I Baker" In our library and it
'would lie scry
worth while to read

HILL BILLIES TAKE OPENER 23
T0 1 7-EftGLES WIN SECOND TUNE
First Team Since 1917 Sh owa Many PotaibiUtitf.
By winning the opener of the scm -
son with the fast Denton Normal
Five the HIM Billy basket ball stock
took a Jump on ";";';'. The form
displayed by the Hill Billies although
far from perfect was as much a sur-
prise to them us to their supporters.
The lltll Billies entered the g.ime
decidedly the underdogs hut emerged
with first victory and played n good
game the second night despite the
fact that they lot.
The Denton r.ngles were runners up
In the T. I. A. A. last year and dis-
played their best form Inst Saturday
night when they defeated the Hill
The Daniel Baker supporters nre
well satisfied with the showing of the
Goats in these two contests. Denton
had experience long practice and a
number of practice games behind them
at the hrghmlng of these contests
and all the Hill Billies td was the
desire to win as they lacked experi-
ence practice and had played no prac-
With these games behind the Hill
Billies are working hard and are try-
ing to round Into some form before
they meet the Simmons cagers next
Monday and Tuesduy night at the
The following write-up of the games
wus taken from the Ilrownwood Dally
Quite a 'difference In tho form of
playing over Friday night was dis-
played on Saturday night between
the North Texas Ponton' Eagles nnd
the Daniel Bnknr Hill BitHcs nt the
Soldiers nnd Huilors Memorial Hall
which the KtigloH won 33 to 9.
Saturday night th'j Kugles vro
in good form And wero u llttlo
more actlvo on the slick floor than
they were Friday night. Tho Billies
fouled very often us dhfllic Uuglcs
and many foul throws nt tho goal
were tho results of the fouls of both
teams and t.-o players of each
team wero put out of the gaim;.
The teams were not as evenly
matched us they wero Friday night.
Tho Eagles found tho goals more
often and they showed bottor de-
fense In both helves which was the
main reason that tho BUHci were
successful In scoring only one field
goal out of the nine points which
they wero successful In scoring.
EIod Stringer scored four of tho
Billy points They all came in the
Pattcrsorv nnd Alford Hardlgrce
i nininn wnrn thn four men
put out on account of personal I
..! fpA tf klu him Mi nlnvnil nul
good ball as they did Friday night.
Brandon wan high points man in
tho game with eight free goals and
two field goals. Hayes came second
with eight points.
Thero were two players on' tho
Hill Billy team that look as though
they might develop Into wondortul
players; they nro Alford and Trtftn-
rael. Both these men showed up
well In the two games last week
which were their first collego bask-
etball games. '
Coach Hlgginbothain ir going to
'work on his team and the nextl
gamea they play their entire team
will be in tho very best condition.

The Daniel Baker Hill Billies came
In to the basket hall court Friday at
the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial
.Hall and won their first game from
the North Texas Stale Teachers col-
lege qu(utct 2: to 17 in a falrfy'fast
game. 'This game was the first the
Hill Billy team had participated In
till' season and It is believed that it
is one of the first scheduled games In
the T. I. A. A. It was the first'T. I.
A. 'A. game to be played nl Browu-
wood and the first by either team.
With only five days of practice' the
Billies showed up fairly well ami .cor-
td first in (lie game. The 'lead In-
creased as the gume grew older and
uiver n time wus Its lead thretarned.
The Teachers runners up In the As-
sociation basketball conference lust
ear did not show -much ut the hall.
Hlgglubnthnm's men showed sieed
nnd handled the hull pretty well.
Most of the players on the 'squad
are Freshmen and have never had any
college basketball before Tr::"-.!"
and Pnltcrtim ' lk well.

but lie was not accurate In hist irual
totsitiff. Condi fllgglnhnrhutu sawhii
team in action -ted he vi make some
improve mints and fill In a few1 nf the
weak places he saw.
The learn the Teachers hail wuu
supposed to be a good squad "but" I hey'
showed nothing except an ability to ''
pass the ball from one goal to another ' '
fairly well. Hurdlpfrce captiUn und '
forward of the Teachers showed good"' '
form. Hurdigrcc was high point van
on his team w ith three field goals and
his team with six points. Trammel
was high )olnt man on his team with
three field goals and four free pitches;
Patterson next with three field goals
and three free pitches.
The Daniel Baker team wus the
first that the school has had out' for
basket ball since 1017 when athletics
were suspended on account 'of the
world war. On this teum FrlduyJliere
was one mnn who played guard on-
the 1017 team. He was CnrfutbJ;'cap-
taiu of the 1925 squad. -h.-i7'
