QO TO THE PROM!

PILL THE FOUNTAIN
PENS . .. .
Tonight is the night for the an-
nual prom. This is the big event
of every school year. This is the
night for which everyone has
waited since the beginning of
school last fall. It is the chance
to have a date with the true love
to show off that new evening dress
and to look one's most beautiful.
ut there is a lot more to the
affair than just that! Tonight
In the gymnasium will be about
six hundred students high school
seniors from sohools and towns
throughout the whole of Central
Texas. These students will be
guests of Daniel taker student
body. As is always the only
thing to do you should show for
your guests only the most cour-
teous attention. Remember that
these seniors are visitors and
prospective students. Unless
they receive a good impression
of Daniel laker at the prom
which might be their only
ohance to formulate an opinion
we oan not hope to win them.
But getting people interested in
Daniel Baker is not such a job.
Someone asked what's the hardest
train in the world to catch. The
reply was "The twelve-fifty for
it's ten to one you won't catch
it." But when you start display-
ing that "Baker spirit" its a much
easier catch you've made.
When the prom is over it
meant that school is almost
over too. And really there are
only four more weeks. And a
lot of things have to happen In
those four weeks . . . social func-
tions galore study baok work

so that the oil can be burned. For
we learned just this semester that
the only way to make good grades
on tests is to study hard the night
before the examination to be sure
that you know what you think ydh
do. It is a bit rough maybe but
remember that even the elevator
boy has his ups and downs so
don't you feel too bad off. If it's
history you're worying about
when Mr. Blair wants to know in
which battle Alexander the Great
was killed just say that it was the
last one he fought.
Another important thing to
remember Just before you are
going to take your examination
If you don't want to feel down In
the mouth on that fatal morn-
