Jackets we will get our test soon ! Which will it be Mc-
Murry or Us? It can be us despite what others say if only we
will fight every down. If we lose this first game it will take its
toll on the others. A winning team keeps on .winning and a los-
ing one vica versa. We must have that first game.
Student-body yell out there tomorrow night. Team fight
every down hit hard and TACKLE when you tackle. We all owe
it to Cheaney and Keaton. Do we want the public to say this
year "Oh they just had the material last year and those past."
You lettermen you we know you are just as good as those of
the past do you ? We can win another championship we will win
it for we are a school that never gives up.
Capt. Spivis Co-capt. Hoot Worley Hutch Dean Bull Jelly
Ted Truett Dutch and Jake as well as the rest of you out there
on that field get in there and show some of these hasty sport-
scribes that we do have the stuff that other schools do not have.
We're behind you gang.
Several Big Six
Teams Will See
The recent formation of the Howard Payne Sportsmanship
Club for the benefit of the younger boys of this city is one of
the best things ever attempted by any student-preacher in this
institution. It will terminate in better and broader citizenship
and will also tend towards making leaders out of otherwise idlers.
Vernon Davidson and "Cap" Shelton are both to be highly com-
mended for this initial step and what it represents to those who
are interested in the future of the little ones.
The Club will meet every Saturday morning at which meet-
ings the boys will be afforded the chance of hearing the more in-
fluential men in Brownwood who will talk on the morals and qual-
ities of good citizens. They will be organized into competing
teams in all major sports and will actually learn to play together
in co-operation with each other. Also they will be given tickets
to each of Howard Payne's home games with the exception of the
Daniel Baker game.
The idea of giving the tickets was just a way in which the
problem of attendance would be solved the real purpose of the
meetings being teaching the boys some of the finer points to liv-
ing. No doubt there will be those jealous enemies who will say
that the thing is nothing more or less than a stunt to grab off
some favorable publicity but Howard Payne has had all the favor-
able publicity she needs during the past few years. We happen
to know Vernon real well and we know that he is a real man
therefore we will never doubt his veracity in organizing this club.
Again we say It is the best thing ever attempted by a student-preacher.
Several Texas Conference teams will
see action over the week-end. In fact
all six of the teams composing the
strong little conference will be play-
ing football either Friday or Satur-
day. Two of the Big Six conference
clashes will be with Southwest Confer
ence members while another will be
without the state when St. Edwards
go to New Orleans to battle with the
Loyola University eleven. Others of
the conference will take on teams not
quite to widely known.
Perhaps the most interesting of all
will be between Howard Payne three
times champion and McMurry who
are contenders for T. I. A. A. honors
this year. Since McMurry has already
seen action this year and that against
Southwestern critics will be compar
ing the chances of Howard Payne with
those of the Georgetown eleven.
The entire conference is anxious to
see the Howard Payne team in action
A variety of reports have gotten out
since the opening of the season and
Cheaney as per his custom keeps
quiet and let's 'em guess. Needless to
say the business-like little mentor will
have a strong team on the field.
Simmons University who met and
conquered the Billies will clash with
Texas University at Austin with the
fond hope of emerging without a sen
ous injury. While all this is going on
Coach Littlefield's Southwestern elev-
en will be battling the Texas Aggies.
On the same afternoon the Austin Col-
lege team will journey to Durant Ok-
lahoma for an engagement with the
Durant Teachers. Trinity will meet
Hillsboro Junior college.
This week's schedule is as follows:
Friday Sept. 25
McMurry College vs. Howard Payne
St. Edwards University vs. Loyola
University at New Orleans.
Saturday Sept. 26
Simmons vs. Texas Universit yat
Austin College vs. Southwestern
Okla. Teachers at Durant.
Southwestern Universit vs. Texas
A. & M. at College Station.
Trinity University vs. Hillsboro Jun
ior College. "
talned can be attributed to the fact
that a man that won be downed can-
not be and that he possessed the per-
sonality fight and spirit to keep his
head above that of the always fame
seeking millions of America.
Dr. Allen Speaks
In Chapel Last
As a part of the program under the
leadership of Miss Shelton of the his-
tory department Dr. Homer Allen
one of this city's leading surgeons
spoke to the student body about Or
ganized Medicine Tuesday morning at
the regular chapel hour.
Preliminary to the lecture was a
short musical program in which the
Misses Katherine Ashcraft and Queen
both played piano solos each. The
morning Scripture was read by Mar-
vin H. White while prayer was offer-
ed by Glenn Dunn both ministerial
Dr. Allen a former Howard Payne
football star expressed his loyalty to
the school also urging this year's team
to win another championship. He be-
gan by announcing his subject "Or-
ganized Medicine." It was a technical
discussion of the efforts of modern
medicine to organize thereby setting
a standard which will better that call-
ing. He also named over a long but
interesting list of outstanding physi-
cians who at 'one time or another at-
tended Howard Payne telling where
they were practicing now.
One of the most interesting remarks
made during the speaker's talk was
the fact that his wife was the woman
who named the Howard Payne teams
the Yellow Jackets which name they
have carried since.
There were eighty (80) present in
the college Sunday school department
at the First Baptist Church last Sun-
day. With this good number from the
college) in Sunday school at one church
it is generally thought that If reports
were obtainable from the others they
would show that most of the Howard
Payne students attended Sunday
school last Sunday.
(Marvin H. White)
Did you go to Church last Sunday ?
There are plenty jf churches in Brownwood for every student
to find his or her place to go to church.
Some of the Brownwood churches even have special depart-
ments in their Sunday Schools and Training Services for the col-
ifcije bovs and girls. Find your place in some church next Sunday.
When college graduates go out into the world they are ex-
pected to amount to something worth while. What will your life
mean to the world when you leave Howard Payne? After four
years in Howard Payne College a Christian college the world will
naturally expect you to be a Christian and trained in Christian
service. Don't disappoint the world but find your place in 'some
church of Brownwood and get that part of your traniing for life.

THIS DAY AND AGE
"Lips that touch liquor shall never touch mine"
This was the song of the maiden
Now it's the boys who must draw the line:
"More clothes you're simply decadent!"
Twas the boys who drank and got soused at night
The girls were all nice and decent
Now it's the girls who get drunk and fight
And the change it isn't so recent.
In the good old days man alone could swear
Women talked in a sweet low whisper
Now a woman says what a man won't dare
Men can't help it and women don't care.

student body. Such spirit as this has
been imparted by Cheaney through
his striking personality and rarely
ever meets defeat.
For three consecutive years the Yel-
low Jacekt team has gone through a
stiff conference schedule without the
loss of a single game. This record
within itself is something any coach
might be proud to boast of and some-
thing that has never been equalled in
all America with the exception of
Utah University who have won the
Western Conference championship the
past three years but not without a de-
feat. To add to this the Jacket squad
has met the strongest teams in the
southwest on almost equal terms. In
1929 they held Southern Mehtodist
University who are always one of the
strongest outfits in the race for na-
tional championship honors to a 13-
13 tie. They rarely ever fail to score
against the strongest and most for-
midable teams. In the S. M. U. game
the Jacket team demonstrated to the
world that when they have their back
to the wall it makes them fight all
the harder. The Mustangs were with-
in striking distance and it looked as
if they would score in spite of a
swarming lined of Yellow Jackets.
When Buck Gibbs one of Cheaney's
"Four Horsemen" snagged an enemy
pass on his two yard line and sprinted
the entire distance of the field for the
most spectacular run in the southwest
Many critics attribute Coach Chea
ney's success to luck and every year
there are optimists that say he can
not repeat his performance another
year. They point to the fact that
there are men leaving positions va-
cant that cannot be filled but year by
year the team seems to be getting bet
ter and better. One of Cheaney's pet
theories is that no matter how well
you do a thing when you step out and
leave a place vacant there is always
somebody coming on that can do It
just a little bit better than you can.
In the opinion of many Joe Chea-
ney yet a young man is today the
best football coach in the state of
Texas and that he has according to
one of the most widely accepted rules
of history that "history repeats it'
self one of the most brilliant careers
ahead pt him of any young man 'in
sportsdom. today and holds great
promise of becoming a figure that
might be named along with Knute
Rochne Bobby Jones Babe Ruth and
other unforgetable names in Amerl
can sports. And In the end it can be
Enjoyed A Rather
The Ministerial Council enjoyed a
rather unique program Tuesday even-
ing at the regular meeting hour. It
was a practical exercise.
The program consisted of an ordi-
nation service with all the characters
and formalities for carrying out a
regular preacher ordination by a
Characters were chosen from the
two candidates for ordination and the
present represented a church. The
program was not completed because
the adjournment broke into the pro-
ceedings but it will be resumed at
some future meeting. It was just an
example of what will be found in this
year's council meetings.
These exercises are planned for the
purpose of giving the student preacher
information about and experience
with that kind of work that he will
engage in out in the field.
"It's not the school" said the stu-
dent "It's the principal of the thing."

Marries Last Week
Dr. J. S. Cook
Dr. J. S. Cook pastor of the First
Methodist Church of this city was the
principal speaker at the regular cha-
pel services held last Monday morn-
ing. He spoke upon the subjecf of
his own choosing: "I am not ashamed
of the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
The pastor pointed out that these
were the words of Paul and showed
how the meaning might be mistaken
today. He stated that although the
statement was made in the negative
way it was meant in the positive way.
In other words Paul uttered this
thought in much the same manner as
one who is proud and loyal to that
which he was talking about.
In nearing the close of his short
talk Dr. Cook told about the biggest
man he had ever met or known. Ac-
cording to the preacher he was a
small man in the army who had the
nerve to get down in front of a group
of fifty soldiers and pray out loud to
"This" said the preacher "Is what
the meaning is when one says: 'I am
not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus
Miss Lucille Ault and Joe George
Wilkins were united in marriage on
September 13 1931 at Altus Okla
Mrs. Wilkins made her home at Black-
well where she was a popular student
in the Blackwell High school. Mr
Wilkins graduated from the Bronte
High school then came to Howard
Payne College for the 1930-31 session.
Mr. Wilkins made many friends while
in college and they all wish the young
couple a very happy life.
Mr. and Mrs. Wilkins will make
their home in Bronte Texas where
he holds interest in real estate.
Dr. Taylor Back
After An Absence
of Several Days
Students have been wondering for
the past three or four days what had
happened to the president. Usually
his smiling face is seen and his witty
remarks heard at the chapel exercises.
Friday Dr. Taylor journeyed to Ris-
ing Star where he spoke at a ban-
quet. Sunday President Taylor went to
Jacksonville where he filled the pulpit
of Rev. Frank Weedon who was clos-
ing a revival meeting at the Coggin
AveniTe Baptist Church. Rev. Woo-

teen districts. Dr. R. L. Powell of
San Angelo is leader of this district.

Brownwood High School's Lions will
engage in their third game of the sea-
son tomorrow evening when they will
meet the Lampasas eleven here at
Kirkpatrick Field at 8 o'clock. Twice
winners the Lions will be plenty hard
to stop and the chances of Coaches
Taylor and McMiller's crew winning
The game will afford another chance
for the Lions to test out their here-
tofore weak points and to see if they
have been corrected. Also it will give
the inexperienced lads on the team a
chance to gain a little more experi-
ence before meeting up with the tough
Oil Belt teams later on in the season.
The same starting line-up will in
all probability be used this evening
