We are sure that all of the student
are glad that examinations are over.
It probably happened that many did
not have their work up on time and
had to spend many extra hours the
Uit week to make up for the time
that they had lost These people pro
btbly made the statement that they
would never let this happen again.
Take a little friendly advice and don't
let this happen In the spring. It is
rather difficult to do the minimum
amount of work in the spring1 much
less the work that should have been
done months ago. So let this be your
motto: I will get my work up on time.
We wish to pu our apology in at
this place. The paper did not come
out on the nineteenth as it was sche
duled because of the final examlna
tlons. It Is rather difficult to find
anyone that is anxious to work on
the paper at any time and at this
particular time it was an impossi-
bility. We hope that you will over-
look this and we will do much better
In the future.
It seems to us that every year just
at the basketball season the school
spirit dies down. This is no time of
the year for the student body to let
down. Every student should coma out
to the basketball games just as loy-
ally as they do to the football games.
It adds color and interest to the game
to see a large group of students at a
game supporting' their team. It
makes it seem that the school is live
and full of pep and spirit For this
reason if for no other the student
body should support their basketball
The chess fad seems to have de
clined a little. This is probably due
to the fact that there are very few
students who know enough about the
game to play well enough to enjoy it
In Its place we have had that little
game that is known as football. This
has created a lot of interest and from
the number of students that have
chosen Chester Britton on their team
it seems that all of the coaches will
be in search of him for their future
teams. It is certain that he will be
the star on any man's team.
We offer our sympathy to the
Bachelor's Association. It seems that
this organization has mors difficulty
than any other organisation in school
in keeping a dictator. Our advice
would be that they get some one who
Is not so nice looking and someone
who does not have that winning per-
sonality it happens that these are
the things that the girls are looking
for and it makes It hard for the dic-
tator to refuse all of the girls. Ws
hope that this organization will have
less trouble In the future.
There has been a lot of comment
on the fact that the floor of the Col
tegian office 1b not always clean. On
Wednesday morning the editor swept
we onico before chapel and on Wed-
nesday afternoon it looked as though
the office had never been swept out
Tnre were witness to the fact that
the office had been swept or this
would have never been told. This
put in merely as an explanation
for the dirt that Is frequently found
In tho office.
Visit us sometime.

D. B. Auxiliary To
On Feb. 9
Daniel Baker Talent to
The Daniel Baker Auxiliary is soon-
soring a program to be given in the
Daniel Baker Fine Arts Building at
eigne ociocK on the night of Febru-
ary 9 1934. The entire fine arts de-
partment of Daniel Baker College
will be represented on this program.
Tne Band the orchestra the boys and
girls' glee clubs and the speech arts
department will have numbers on the
program. This Is to be one of the
best programs of the year. Admis-
sion for this proarram will be ten.
fifteen and twenty-five cents.
Every student in Daniel Baker
should attend this program because
of the cause to which this money will
go. The Daniel Baker Auxiliary is
composed of women who are interest-
ed in Daniel Baker and its work.
Each year these women undertake to
do some one thing that will aid the
college most One year they paid
the rent for a bouse that was used
as the boys dormitory. Another yeas
they bought some reference books for
the library. The money for this pro-
gram is to go for improvements for
the girls dormitory. Since this is aid-
ing the students of Daniel Baker the
students should support them and at
tend this program. It Is hoped that
everyone will attend this program
People who have been reading the
Houston Press are aware of the fact
that this newspaper is now offering
something that up to this time has
not been within the roach of all the
people. Laurence Stallings a World
War veteran wrote "The First World
War." In this book he told the story
of the war as it began and of the
happenings that took place at the be-
ginning of the war. To make this
book more authentic and more inter-
esting he placed In this book many
pictures to tell the story of what hap-
pened In the war. The price of this
la more than most people can pay. In
order that those who wish may read
this story the Houston Press Is run-
ning this story with Its pictures. You
may get the back Issues and begin
with the story now.

Student Body Votes
to Pay Tax for Band
On Thursday morning January 19
1984 the president of the student
body Howard Harris took charge for
a short business session. The object
or this meeting was to put before the
student body the plan of adding fifty
cents to the activity fee next semes-
ter. This fee was to go to the band
for the purpose of buying new music
and racks. This year the band has
been working under a handicap; they
have been unable to get any music
because of the lack of funds. If the
band Is to be a success in Daniel Ba-
ker they must have the opportunity
to start off this year and no band
will be able to do their best without
music. The student body voted to
pay fifty cents to the band next se-
mester for the purpose of buying new
music. With this new advantage
Daniel Bakers band should prove to
be one of the best of its size in the
state of Texas.

dealing with the "nerves" question
the makers of Camels continue to lay

In every advertisement that Camels

The Daniel Baker Orchestra will
present- a program of sacred num
bers February 18 1934. This will be
the first program of this type that
the orchestra has given this year. It
has been the custom of this organ!'
zation to give a program of this type
every year. This should prove to be
a very enjoyable program. It will be
given at three-thirty.
The orchestra also plans to give a
Victor Herbert program in the near
future. This program will consist of
numbers writen by Victor Herbert on-
ly. The date for this presentation
has not yet been announced.
There has been a new member add-
ed to the orchestra who will add to
the beauty of their selections. Junior
Williams will play the drums in the
With the announcement of these
two new engagements we will again
say that this is one of the most ac

After winning three hard contests
Saturday the Daniel Baker Fresh-
men won the right to meet the How-
ard Payne Freshmen In the final and
deciding game of the Coleman Invi-
tation Tournament which they won
The Freshmen defeated Rockwood
Water Valley and the Coleman Na-
tional Guards in order to get to tho
finals. Water Valley were the tough-
est opposition found in getting to
play off. The final score being 33-32.
Although the final game didn't
start until 10 p. m. It didn't slow the
Frosb down. Playing heads-up ball
they soon jumped Into an early lead
which the Howard Payne Frosb. were
never able to overtake. As the half
ended Daniel Baker had a lead of
20-11. But this lead did not last long
as tho score soon tied at 27 all. With
a last minute rally the Frosh were
able to put the game on Ice.
The freshmen placed two men on
the all-tournament team. These men
were McCulley and Payne who re-
ceived gold basketballs.
Baylor University sponsored a
Bpeech tournament that was held in
Waco Friday and Saturday January
12 and 13 1934. In this tournament
Daniel Baker entered two teams a
team of boys and a team of girls.
Lcander Hall and BUI Murphy were
the Daniel Baker representatives on
the team of men; Leota Leach and
Ernestine Durham represented Dan
iel Baker on the girls team. Leander
Hall is a sophomore in Daniel Baker.
He debated for several years in the
Brownwood High School and last
year he was a representative from
Howard Payne. Bill Murphy is also
a sophomore In Daniel Baker and a
former Brownwood High School de-
bater. Last year he was not In Dan-
iel Baker during the time for debate.
Leota Leach is representing
Daniel Baker for her second year

ARE LEADERS IN BOTB OF
THE SCORING DEPARTH ENTS
Given By Coggins
The members of the Coggln Soci-
ety entertained the football boys with
a banquet in the Gold Room of the
Hotel Brownwood on Thursday Jan
uary 11 1934. For this annual ban-
quet there were about sixty guests
For this occasion Ernestine Dur-
ham acted as toastmistress. The pro-
gram that was given carried out a
very clever line of thought. The play-
ers were grouped into members that
would represent each month. To each
of these groups was given a toast
The orchestra under the direction of
Tom Blake furnished the music for
Miss Virginia Skinner gave a toast
to Ouy Shults and Billy Turney. Her
toast ran along the line of January.
After this very appropriate toast the
orchestra played "Lxy River."
Lawrence Wren received a toast
from Juanita Thomason for the month
of February. For some unknown rea-
son the orchestra chose at this par-
ticular time the number "You've Got
The next toast was given by Sarah
McCreary. This toast was for the
month of March and was given to a
large group of boys. The members
of this group were Bill White Her-
man Gipson Fred Sailings and Wei-
don Woodward "You're Driving Me
Crazy" was the rendition by the or-
chestra. To the great disappointment of the
group the next individual to enter-
tain was absent Mrs. Wright was to
have recited that famous passage of
Chaucer. This was to have been giv
en as a toast to Bill Gibson.
Miss Beatrice Hickman gave a
toast to Spec Smith. She chose this
month because it brought to her mind
the name Mary. The orchestra dou-
bled this tribute by playing "You're
My Only Sweetheart"
While Wilma Pratt Wilma Green
and Ruth Johnston sang "Perfect
Day" Mary Bell paid tribute to all
of the graduating players. In her
toast she brought to the minds of all
those present the feeling of sadness
that one has when they are preparing
to leave a school that they have at-
tended for four years.
The yell leaders Billy Dlllln Irby
Gleaton and BUI Murphy were toasted
by Mary EUtabeth McHorse. In this
toast' Mary Elizabeth brought out the
I loyalty of the leaders to their team
during the past year as well as a sew
of the humorous things that they had
done. After this toast the orchestra
played a group of Daniel Baker songs.
The month of August brings to our
minds 'Stormy Weather.' AUee Brown
paid tribute to Rutledge Head Sin-
clair and Morris.
To carry out the month of Septem-
ber Genevieve Mclnroe toasted Snod-
grass Adams and Hickman. After
this toast "Shine on Harvest Moon"
"Blue Prelude" was played as tri-
bute to Herman Trigg. Miss Naomi
Robertson added to this with a tri-
bute from the Coggln Society.
Dorothy Wilson presented a toast
to Howard Harris after which
"Smoke Rings" was played.
Elisabeth Blalock paid tribute to
the coaches after which the orches-
tra played "Who's Afraid of the Big
After all of the toasts each of the
boys was given an opportunity to re
spond. Then the banquet was con
cluded in a very informal way. It
was reported that this was one of
the best banquets that the Coggins
had bad in a number of years.
The Daniel Baker Hill Billies hung . '
up their first conference game last u. i J
night when they defeated Southwes-
tern University Prlates in a hard
fought battle 25-45.
Opening up with a flashing scoring
attack which was never over taken
by the Pirates Tongate taking the
first two tosses from the center
looped them In the basket for the
first four points. While "Bones"
Harris accounted for several of the
foUowIng scores in no short time.
Two separate teams were used in
last night's struggle with both fives
looking great. One team was com-
posed of Tongate McBride Boochey
Harris Gibson and Bull Harris. The
other was Smith McDanlel Rutledge
O. Chrane and Head. Both teams
divided time for the game.
Daniel Baker took a commanding
lead in the first part of the game
which was never threatened during
the first half. As the gun sounded to
end the first half Baker lead 26-18.
Boochey Harris long tall gangling
center for the Billies and George
Chrane carried off scoring honors
for the night each scoring ten points.
While Hack McBride was close behind
with nine points. Newton lead the
Pirate attack with seven points.
Boochey Harris and Rutledge BO
lie center turned in fair games at
the pivot positions. Sixteen points
were scored by these two while the
opposing center scored four points.
Last night's game ends this weeks
play for the Billies but they open up
next week with a full schedule. They
will go to Abilene Monday night
where they will encounter the A. C C.

The student body had the rare priv-
Hedge of bearing a missionary from
Mexico Miss Alice McClellan. Miss
McCIellan is a former student of Dan-
iel Baker and it has been said that
Daniel Baker would not be here. It
was the work of the McCIellan's that
established Daniel Baker.
Miss McClellan is working In a
Presbyterian school in the Interior of
Mexico. On the campus are two dor-
mitories. In each of these dormito-
ries Is an instructor of the school.
They try In every way to make these
schools as home-like as possible. In
this school they have all kinds of
parties and entertainments.
On the campus are basketball
courts baseball and football fields.
In this way the students have enter-
tainment and recreation the year
The Mexican laws wiU not allow
the teaching of any religion in any
school. So In order to have this in-
struction the school provides for a
chapel across the river from the cam-
pus. In the summer those boys and
girls that have become Christians
spread literature and preach.
This is a marvelous work and Miss
McClellan says that It is enjoyable
work. The student body welcomes
her back for another address.
The Tennis Club announces
that no one will be allowed to
play on the Daniel Baker tennis
courts unless they have on ten-
