DANIEL BAKER COLLEGE BROWNWOOD TEXAS WEDNESDA Y JANUARY 21 1948
Favorite Election Declared Void
"Corral" to Be Held In Book-Store
Lack ai Val.it
As most of the student body
knows Daniel Baker has started
off this election year with two elec-
tions in quick succession. There
was a slight difference in the re-
sults of the two elections. A run-
off will be held in the Trail Editor
election a'nd new nomonations will
have to be made for the popularity
contest. Much to our regret the
"Favorites" election proved that
the Collegian has only sixty read-
ers while the other election showed
that the "Corral" has one hundred
and forty-two patrons.
Ray Barnctt student body presi-
dent reports that since there were
only sixty votes cast in the popu-
larity contest a new election will
be held. It will be announced at n
Because of the excellent qualifi-
cations of the three candidates the
election for the Trail Editorship
was unusually close. The votes
were almost evenly divided forty-
three forty-nine and fifty. A
iun-off will be held between Baker
Conger and Stanley Burnham on
Tuesday January 20. Sinco the
"Corral" seems to be more popular
for elections than the Collegian
the election will be held in the
book-store between 8:00 A.M. and
Everyone is urged to come in out
of the cold have a cup of good
five-cent coffee and cast his vote
in this important election.
All books and library materials
will be due in the library January
27 at the latest and should be
turned in earlier if possible. Please
try to pay all fines before taking
examinations. If they are not paid
the fines will be truncd in the the
office and deducted from the li-
brary fees which are returnable
upon withdrawing from college.
The library will be open " for
study during examination wck
and library books and mnteiials
may be used in the library but no
books nor materials will be checked
out to be taken from the library
except by special request of faculty
members. All semester books
should be checked in on Monday
Jan. 20th or brought back with u
request of faculty members lo bo
kept out during the examination.
Library records must be clear be-
fore grades are issued to students.
If faculty members have books
out that are no longer needed they
should be returned to the library
also. If a faculty member needs to
continue to use the book or books
the librarian should be informed
because the checking files will be
cleared at the end of the first se-
mester and a careful check will be
made before the beginning of the
second semester. The librarian will
appreciate the return of uny library
books or materials round anywhere
that may have belonged to tho
library or that still belongs to tho
library of Daniel Baker College.
The librarian appreciates the
help and cooperation of students
and faculty members in keeping
up with and returning library books
and materials in the library. An
increase in attendance on the part
of the students and teachers in the
library as well as an increase in
the number of books and mateliala
being used is also encouraging. A
still greater increase is expected
next semester. A daily check of
attendance as well as of tho num-
ber of books and materials used is
made and kept. Are you doing
your best to help to keep up and
even to raise our standards T
What do you want to read? If
the McClelland Memorial Library
does not have tho book that you
want the librarian has privileges
of inter-librarian service and if
requests are made in advance for
materials or books that are not in
the library they may be obtained
from other libraries
How much time do you spend in
the library t Each student should
spend at least one hour on oach
subject in the library and then
study another hour on each lesson
at home. The best students spend
gnat part of their time in the
Growls From the
BY ROGER WOOLDRIDGE
Jack McCullcy has never owned
a hat. More than once in the past
Jack hasgonc shopping for a hcud-
picco to wear when ho "dresses
up" but always returns loaded
down with various items of cloth-
ing other than a hat. From the
facts I have gathered thin '.nay be
a case for some of you amateur
From listening to Mr. Stevic in
psychology class I gather that it's
possible that Jack has never owned
a hat because he honestly doesn't
want one even though he thinks
he does or he is afraid of a hat.
Lounging in the drug the other
day Jack mentioned that he "sure
would like to buy a new hat" nnd
Glenn Patterson told him that they
were practically giving away hats
at several of the leading stores. I
thought a first-hand witness neces-
sary und fifteen minutes Her Jack
und I were asking a clerk to show
us to the hat sale. We were in
the wrong store but before we loft
he bought u solid red Bhirt he Was
certain he didn't like. Things were
a little more promising in vhc next
store. They were featuring some
aged Western models. The West-
ern's didn't exactly suit his per-
sonality but without asking lo sec
the other models he purchased u
new sport shirt which had collar
against his taste. In the next
store he didn't even ask for a hat
but went immediately to the shoe
department and bought a pair of
military shoes which won u decis
ion over a pair of loafers. No hat.
As I mentioned curlier there!
could be some psychological rea-
son why Juck is unuble to puchasc
the hat he says he wants but my
opinion is that if ho doesn't change
his shopping procedure he never
will own a hat.
Just a word for the new editor of
tho Trail. The run-off between
Stanley und Buker will put the
winner right in the middle of ti
job that is one big headache even
at tho "best und right now things
are far from being under control in
the annual department. The big-
gest hold-up at the present is with
tho students who haven't had their
pictures. According to schedule
wo should be finished now with
class pictures but there ure btill
freshmen sophomores juniors und
seniors who haven't puid that visit
to Gibbon's-Smith. The actual
photographing won't take over ten
minutes and the service is free.
Give the now editor a break get
your slip in the Public Relations
Office and be at Gibbon's-Smith
studio across from Howard Payne
between 3:30 and 5:30 toduy!
Now thut the favorite contest
will be hcld-over perhups a few of
the 210 students who didn't voto
beforo will reconsider. In every
school there is thut old complaint
that "everything is run by just u
few people". The system proposed
by Dean Mendenhall is probably
one of tho fairest systems used by
college elections in this country.
Tho bullot nomination system of-
fers tho opportunity to even tho
shyest students to nominate their
secret heart-throb for u fuvorite

you can't decide whether she is

Sweetheart or Most Populur Girl

In Sunday's Dullas Morning
News his opinion that man is the'
blame for his own present woes in
international relations is voiced.
"The biggest menace to world
peace is human nature said Dr.
Clyde Eagleton "Not especially
Russiun humun nature nor parti
cularly the American brand of hu-
man nature but just human na-
ture". He says that the United States
has two alternatives: to build up
national security or to build up
international security. Dr. Eagle-
ton who has spent his life study-
ing iutcrnation law says that in
the last war international law with
reference to war wus outmoded.
"But I'm not interested in laws
for polite conduct of war. I'm In-
tel ested in laws which might pre-
vent war" he said.

The Innuialtive woman was
worrvintr the Rurdcncr. She asked
a lot of silly questions.
"What stens do vou tako with
the caterpillars?" she asked next.
"Well mum." said tho exDasner-
atcd gardener. "I takes a half a
dozen steps into our nearest iieia
and turns the caterpillars around
three times so that thev srets iriddv
and don't know their way back."
"What Kind of A Me Would
I Be?" Professor Eubank
"What kind of world would it be
if people trusted in God and what
kind of a me would I be?" was the
topic of Professor Bransford Eu-
bunk's talk to students in Chapel
January 8. There are two ways
of doing a thing: man's way and
God's way. Often these two ways
are in conflict. However when
these two ways coinslde they unite
and the strength is" increased and
equal to these two forces as we
learned in mathematics. This proves
that if man uses God's way ho has
God's strength plus his own
strength. A man breaks his resol-
utions because he has not trusted
in God and has only man's strength
behind him. A man that trusts
God gets his strength from God.
Man's own strength is not enough
to protect him from evil. Man
needs the combined strengths to
live happily in the world today.

Brcakfust in your room one ex-
am every two years and classes
if you're in the mood those are
a few features of college in Britinn.

eral hundred Americans mostly
veterans currently attending En-
Living nnd studying in colleges
built before Columbus discovered
America these Yunks ure enrolled
in institutions ranging from Ox-
ford and Cambridge to the Roynl
Academy of Dramatic Art and Uiu
Lcatherscllers' Technical College.
And according to Puul Pearson re-
porting on college life abroad for
Varsity the young man's maga-
zine Americans are deeply im-
pressed by England's system of ed-
ucation. "Cnusual" is the word to de-
scribe tho English student says
Pearson. He is more serious than
his American counterpart (but
no more "eager") is jolly with-
out being a bnck-sluppcr and tends
to "talk shop" constantly. Instead
of cheering wildly at a soccer or
cricket game he can be counted mi
in cases of extreme excitement
to say "well done Cambridge!"
Modest and quiet application the
Varsity article states it the key-
note of the English educational
method. Degrees are awarded only
on the basis of two or three exams
given ut tho end of two or three
yeurs of study. Clusses are option-
al but "tutors" require essays nt
the weekly meeting with students
nnd follow these with long invol-
ved discussions. The luxuries of
breakfast in your room are count-
ered by heavier restrictions on
lenving the college urea in the
evenings or for week-ends.
Pearson concludes his overseas
report to Varsity by saying that
English school officials expected
the Americans to act like "cow-
boys." Instead ho declares they
now suy: "The Yanks are kind
thoughtful und quick to return hos-
pitality. And their personality is
second to none.".

this is true because u study of
Russia today will show that beauti-
ful cathedrals have been truned in-
to museums; the religion has be-
come Communism worship of the
State and of Stalin. Some people
resent God because they are driven
to Him just as disobedient child-
ren resent their parents. Others
resent God because their strength
is not equal to His and they arc
forced to come to Him.
Professor Eubank quoted Bishop
Smith saying "Love is better than
hate; right will win." Once wo

us than wo are to ask Him. God

Although Bryan Morrow is now

Morrow a Brownwood resident is
majoring in Education and minor-
