OF DANIEL BAKER COLLEGE
BROWNWOOD TEXAS TUESDAY OCTOBER 10 1950
OCT. 10 NAMED
F-DAY FOR FISH
Freshmen day is right upon us
and it really brings out the true
meaning of the Hillbillies. October
tenth has been set for this annual
event. Many oh's and ah's can be
heard throughout the campus com-
ing from those underlings the
"Fish." "I simply won't embarass
myself by looking like something
out of World War II." "You'd think
I had crossed the 38th parallel
without General MacArthur's for-
ces from the way I look." "Maybe
I can catch the measles the day
before Freshmen day." "Did you
hear how we're supposed to wear
our hair?" "I simnly can't bea1
going to school looking like that."
These are just a few things which
were heard after the announcement
was made to the Freshmen class
about how they were to dress.
Don'! feel so down-hearted fresh-
men this is supposed to be your
"big duy." You have one day to
make up for the nine months that
the upper classmen have over you.
Use it to your advantage. If you
have trouble with anyone here is
your chance to even things up
but remember tomorrow is another
For those who don't know how
the freshmen are going to dress
I'll attempt to give you some con-
ception of it. The girls are to wear
their hair in small pigtails all ovor
the "cranium" a necklace of garlic
or onions a "toe-sack" over the
shoulders old long flannels paja-
mas or anything else to make like
idiots. The boys are supposed to
wear a "toe-sack" worn out over-
alls two different types of shoes
one sock a couple of cracked
teeth or a reasonable facsimile a
hound dog or anything else to
make themselves repulsive. Don't
forget you are honored with a
d:v of your own. You are just a
freshman once that is if you have
a little luck with you. Let's make
the best of 1950's Freshman Day.
A loose fitting jacket aids in
distinguishing the bulk of a large
man and hides the slimness of a
man who is too thin.

game but their very best wasn't
enough. Too many penalties and
bad luck hampered them. Regard-

By Lobces 35-0
Alpine Texas Sept. 30 1950.
Scoring early in the first quar-
ter a determined Sul Ross eleven
went on to win a long drawn out
game from Daniel Baker's fighting
Hillbillies 35-0. Ted Scown Lone
Star Conference leading ground
gainer ripped off a 36 yard run
early in the game that set up Sul
Ross' first touchdown. Red Boy-
les Lobo fullback cracked over
left guard from the two yard line
to score after a very stubborn Bil-
lie line had held for three succes-
sive downs. He also kicked the
In the second quarter the Hill-
billies launched a counter attack
with Arliss Willingham returning
a punt for 40 yards and a touch-
down. The play was called back
because of an offside penalty.
This could have knotted the score
and changed the results of the
game but old lady-luck faltered for
the Billies and Sul Ross cashed in
on the breaks.
Several other penalties hurt the
Hillbillies scoring chances through-
out the entire game. Altogether
Daniel Baker was penalized about
225 yards. This many penalties
would hurt any team.
At halftime the score did not
look too bad. Sul Ross was leading
14-0. In the second half the Lobos

would have an atomic war which
would be more horrible' than any-
one can imagine."
"We should use faith intelli-
gence and prayer. But" he added
"if war does come we must fight;
there is still a better way out."
Tentative plans for a spring tour
of the Chorus were announced last
week by Dr. Thomas Williams head

tour for the chorus in the spring

third week of practice. All those
people who are interested and have
been unable to come to the re-
