TEXAS CONFERENCE TEAMS IN FIRST NIGHT TILT
Jackets to Meet
San Marcos Next
Monday at Night
FIRST NIGHT MEET
Jackets Scheduled to Win
Meet; Bobcats Have
Edge in Two Events.
Howard Payne tracksters will meet
the San Marcos Teachers in their next
dual meet Monday night in San Mar-
cos. This will be the first night inter-
collegiate track meet ever to be held
in the Lone Star State.
This meet will be somewhat of a
novel affair as neither team has ever
participated in a meet under the
lights. The Bobcat track is laid around
their football field and the lights can
easily be focused to cover the entire
quarter mile track. The night run-
ning should be easy on the thinly
clads as they will not have to be wor-
ried by the heat. Too the heat is
considerable worse in that country
than around Brownwood. Another
thing that has handicapped the track
artists this season is the wind which
has been blowing during the season

ING THE COLLEGE
Rev. J. J. Strickland a former state
Sunday School secretary and a pastor
in four states was in chapel Tuesday
morning and spoke for a few minutes
concerning Howard Payne and what
It means to every ex-student.
Taking as an outline the Scripture
where Paul said he was debtor he
was ready and not ashamed the speak-
er applied the words to the present.
He stated that the world does not
owe any one anything but that the
world is due everything from the
hands of the person living in it. The
thing that every person owes the
world is a well spent life. If the obli-
gation to the world is met then the
well-spent life will pay them.
A story was told concerning the
things that happen to the youth who
labors under difficulties in the coun-
try and comes to the schools to learn
how to live the best possible way.
According to the speaker it is this
group of people that are most used in
The W. A. A. organization in How-
ard Payne are planning a pageant to
be presented on the campus soon in
which all the phases of women's ath-
letics will be pictured.
The pageant is to be presented by
the girls interested in the work and
will be announced about May 1. The
plan is to have the program at ap-
proximately sundown so that the best
results can be obtained.
