Growls Prom the
By RUTH THOMASON
After a week's vacation from
this "Rag" here I am again to
scream at you. Some people might
call spending a week In the Den-
tist's chair a vacation but It Isn't
my Idea of a pleasant one. Any-
how I really am glad to be sitting
up among the chosen few again.
The All-Student picnic was a
real success. All you students that
didn't attend really missed a fine
outing. We need more of such get-
togethers to keep up the good
moral of the Hill Bllles. I ate
enough to last an average person
two days and was still hungry. It
wasn't because there wasn't enough
food not by all means it was the
fresh air ride I took In Oooch's
Model T.' There Is nothing like a
few down-pours of rain to give
one an appetite. Dr. Reese even
went so far as to comment that
he wondered where I was storing
It. People have often wondered
where the Thomason family puts
all the food they buy. We are all
big enough to fight our weight in
wild-cats so its not surprising to
I have been asked by our 'Gen-
eral Flunky' Tom Epley to find
out who borrowed pages 26 and
28 from the Collegian's copy of
The Handy Standard Dictionary.
That my friend's was a slight
case of sabotage. I have been driv-
ing him CRAZIER asking bow to
spell words. My so called brain
ceases to function when it comes
to spelling words with over four
letters in them. Also if anyone
happens to have an old typewriter
ribbon and isn't using it the do-
nation to us would be greatly ap-
preciated. Even If it is thread-
bare it will beat this one.
We are thinking of holding a
rummage sale with the goods that
has been gathering over at the
Doghouse for the past year. I look-
ed through all the coats hats
books etc. and found a sweater
that I havp been accusing my fel-
low sufferers of selling to get date
money. I will hang my head for C
minutes for such n wrong doing.
This Spring-fever that has been
getting me down for the past while
will soon lead to a trip to Austin
with me staying for awhile In tho
Bug-House. I've tried several cures
that were suggested by pals but
the disease returns after each. I
know one good cure they say is
tho sure thing. That is "California
in the Spring." If anyone would
like to hitch-hike out there with
me leave your name and address
at the Dog-House and we might
work oup a deal. Irene Hanson
went earlier in the Spring and it
seems to have done a great deal
Our Editor has gone to Yankee
Stomping grounds for a couple of
weeks so that his parents can rest
awhile knowing that he Is being
good for a change. Wonder what
they will say when they see those
circles under his eyes? Over-work
can cause a lot of things I guess.
The Tennis Tournament sounds
as if it will be a fine one. I'll bet
the players will put out more
energy than there has been on
this campus since basketball sea-
son. Wonder what the neighbors
will think when they see all the
stirring around? They will prob-
ably call the ambulance so that it
will be handy in case of sun-
strokes skinned knees etc That
might not be such a bad Idea since
so many of us have such huge
anchors (feet). I even have trou-
ble walking on a sidewalk because
I fall over each crack that Is rais-
ed over one lath of an Inch. Borne
one accused my mother of tylag
my knees together when I was a
baby but all that actually hap-
pened was a slight fall on my
head. How a fall on my head can
causa knot-kaeedness Is beyond
me. Ask Tom he might know.
Thomas speaks: "It's not the
knees that seem to be troubling
rather the trouble seems to be
located slightly above the plaos
the dentist has been excavating."
I Might take this tuna to want
11 copy typers sot to leave their
copy fa the typewriter ualess yoa

vice by Daniel Baker College as
a four year senior college.
The annual banquet for the
Junior and Senior classes of Dan-
iel Baker College is to bo held at
the Lake Brownwood State Park
on May 1. This banquet is given
by the Juniors each year in honor
of the Seniors. At present the pro
gram for the evening's entertain
ment has not been definitely ar
ranged but a committee composed
of the Junior class are working
on the matter. All members of
both classes who plan to attend
tho affair should turn In their
names as soon as possible.
Bonds or bondage?

the above paragraph.
Well this ought to be enough
chatter to fill up this column so
I'll check out and catch up on
some much needed sleep. Bo long
and don't forget to take your
change In Defense Stamps because
your pennies won't do YOU any
good unless Unckle Bnmmie comes
out on top. A Stomp a day will
keep the Japs away.
P. S. Thanks again to the crew
that has helped me to publish this
week's "bull session." Without
their help I couldn't have done it.
I left the Doghouse Wednesday
night at 10.30 and they were still
beating It out on tho typewriters
so you can see that there are still
people in Baker who will help out
In important Issues.

Sixty students accompanied by
Dr. Doubt Professor Reeves aad
Mrs. Woodward attended the an-
nual all-student picnic which was
held at the Florey boat docks last
Tuesday. Original plans for taking
the San Jacinto holiday outing at
the old dam were discarded whea
it was learned that the recent
rains made that picnic spot inae-
cessable to the public.
Plcknlckers were scheduled to
meet at the dormitory at 8:80 a.m.
but due to the fact that several
were late lt was after 9:80 before
the lost car left. Upon arriving at
the docks every one piled out aad
proceeded to work up an appetite.
Glynn Smith and Tonnie Smithers
chose sides for a game of touch-
football while others played bast-
ball. Girls batted to an all-mala
outfield. After ball games Mrs.
Woodward directed students In a
series of folk dances In a nearby
pavllllon. Ruth Thomason caught
two fish with a line. The fish were
the sort commonly known aa
"channel cat." And there was a
rumor of a little game of galloping
dominoes but no concrete evidence
of the same was found.
The lunch rather banquet con-
sisted of sandwiches In generoas
numbers furnished by the weaker
sex; cookies fruit and potato
chips brought along by the males.
John Barton waa In charge of the
official liquid refreshments which
consisted of cokes an dother soft
drinks. Despite of the fact that
everyone including the teachers
had enormous appetites thsra
were still a great amount of food
Patsy and Eddie Farron with
Eddie's visiting twin brother fur-
nished entertainment via the radio.
Then Dale Bagley drove his ear
near the pavllllon and several cou-
ples danced; not to folk music
however. Dr. Doubt a beautiful
bouquet in one hand and Profes-
sor Reeves with a sandwich pre-
sented a beautiful shot to the pho-
tographer as they were peacefully
seated on a bench surveying the
activities of the students.
Eight students seeking excite-
ment rented two motor-boats for
an hour. They were disappointed
when they found that the boats
would run only six-tenths of a
knot instead of sixty per hoar.
Fortunately boats unlike can
are not destrlcted to one spare tho
boats having at least two oars.
One boat load thought they wers
going to have to use the oars when
the motor in their boat wont dead.
But the only trouble was found to
be the lack of fuel. The two boats
collided once or twice but no dam-
age was done to either craft or to
any of the occupants.
Some of the athletes tried to out-
do each other chinning. The sorest
person in school Wednesday was
probably the winner. And a few
hard-hearted individuals went
down to the docks and tried to
shoot the little man who runs
around in the woods down there.
"Where are the cars?" soma one
"Oh they are Just out of sight"
another ptcknicker answered.
It so happened that they wsra
out of sight about nine miles out
of sight. Then someone sighted
"Mo" Utley. If it hadn't been for
Mr. Utley several of the picnick-
ers would have had to hitch-hiked
back to Brownwood. At any rate
they piled in and on "Mo'a"
coupe and arrived safely if a
Maurlne Gaines and Jobs Bar-
ton taking several of the party
back to town found John Eraser's
car mysteriously parked oa tha
side of the road reportedly suck-
ed for duration due to the shortage

The plcnlo was deflaltely a sac-
cess but ohl the groans that
were heard Wednesday morning
from the few scholars who nude
their olaasss that day.
