In looking over the p.ot year
the I'lper realizes that ladio has
played a pretty big part In the
lives of eveiyone. In the realm
of fine ntts business i-iteitnln-ment
politics and In other nu-
merous fields tndlo has had a
pait. In 11)40 these fields will
continue to feel the lnuuence of
radio on perhaps a In ger scale
especially politics. K'utlon year
8 heic and speeches will be made
but with a radio osii can always
stop listening to a politician with-
out insulting nnyone.

On December 27 1939 Mr Al-
bert Boenicke 84 for whom the
Boenlcke Museum on this campus
was named died at the home of
his daughters Misses Pauline and
Lydla Boenlcke of this city
MV. Boenlcke presented to the
college what is perhaps the larg-
est collection of horns and other
curios in Texas This collection
which Is housed in the Boenlcke
Museum was gathered In Europe
Canada and the United States.
It Includes mounted horns heads
and bodies of n great variety of
wild life from America. In It Is
also included a collection of nearly
100 rare coins and a great number
of arrow heads and Indian trink-
ets. The collection represented n life-

Another Halt of this season is
the living death which character-
lues the atmosphere surrounding
the campus Possibly Goldsmith
got a few pointers for his "De-
seited Village" from a college
campus immediately preceding or
dutlng exam week.
Cram is the keynote of what lit-
tle activities there is going on
around the campus. A futile but
valiant attempt to pack eighteen
weeks worth of things and stuff
In an unwilling biain during a
few days time. Quite a gorgan-
tuan task for those whose cere-
bral and synaptic patterns are not
set In the Ingenious lines of the
uire metitnl giants. But with the
typical slaphappy optimism of
collegiate America they are lolling
up their bedragggled sleeves and
wading Into the neglected currlcu-
lar matter with a vim vigor and
leality that Is perhaps inspired by
n terror stricken vision of a
ghastly "F" fucing them on a
class ticket. Seventeen weeks of

All of which Is pointing to the
f.ict that next week Is official
"dead week" at Howard Payne
during which time Howard Payne
students will be in the midst of
e'snms. This week is when all
extra-cuiricular activity Is at a
minimum. Clubs and other cnm

The Social Science class under

Saturday January 13.
This activity culminating the
semester's work will include an

activities that the class has been
engaged in during the semester.

C. L. Scott Stationed
At Coast Air Depot
In a teeent letter to Professor
I'' Y Robnett of the Howard
Pa; ne faculty C. L. Scott Jr. for-
mer Howard Payne student now
connected with the Sacramento
Air Depot in California revealed
some interesting sidelights In con-
nection with his work with the
United States Air Corps at this
Mr Scott commented on the
simllniity of the work at this air
depot with the woik Involved In

Hint the planes used were the
same type of planes used by the
majoiity of the major cummer-
( iul airlines in this country.
Another Intel esting simllniity
poined out by Scott was that of
the highly touted California
weather to the not widely enough
hei aided weather of Texas.

a way that the student now com-

has been accomplished by increns-

RAGTIME JAZZ AND SWING

Perpetuation of Swing Music

Ragtime . . . Jazz . . . Swing
u combination of cowboy songs
negro spirituals and folk songs.
In short the evolution of true
As for swing in a limited way
It may be defined as improvised
jazz. When a musician is fea-
tured in an ad lib chorus he is
playing something as he feels it
and the way he wants to play it.
From this comes the essence of
swing and also many intricate and
highly developed modern swing
Now to take a poke at those
"know-alls" who say swing music
will go out and is rapidly fading
out now. They might as well say
dnncc music is going out and you
know kids dancing has been with
us a long time and well that just
doesn't sound right. They may
say that popular music will take
it's place. Wouldn't it get old to
dance and listen to the same fif-
teen tunes for perhaps a solid
month (not to mention the poor
song writers)? Remember "know-
alls" that when you condemn

The B. S. U. Mission woik in
Valley View has been moving
along in a fine way since Its start
a shoit time ago. The services
Thuisday January 4 were in
charge of Leo Armstrong assisted
by Verna Filzzell who had chaige
of the soul winning.
Rev. Robert Jenkins delivered
n message using the Scriptures
louud in I John 5:17; Rom. 5:12.
His text was For all Unrighteous-
ness is Sin.
The song service was directed
by James F. Stanley. There was
one profession of faith at the
close of the meeting.
Font teen students were In the
gioup and eleven Valley View
people four of whom were un-
saved. This work is being carried
on by students who wish to serve
the Master while in Howard

workers. If you sing preach talk
read the Bible or pray the group
will welcome you. The gioup

The ceremony was performed
by Rev. J. M. Bradford pastor of

Anne Lassiter YWA
Has Social Session
The Ann Lassiter Y. W. A. of
Coggin Avenue Baptist church
met Tuesday Jan. 2.
After a light supper in the
basement the members retired to
an adjoining room for their
monthly missionary program. Fol-
lowing the program a large bosket
of gifts were presented to Mrs.
Harold Chastaln formerly Miss
Mary Fiunces Sprinkle an active
worker in the auxiliary.
The Minister's Wives Auxiliary
held Its regular weekly meeting
in the T. E. L. room of the First
Baptist church Tuesday evening.
The program was of a unique
character being a Scrap Book
program with Mrs. Coplln in
New officers for the next se-
mester were elected and are as
follows: Mrs. Palmer president;
Mrs. Pattillo vice-president; Mrs.

tary. BSU Mission Workers
The B. S. U. mission workers
preached three sermons and con-
t cted fourteen persons In the Mil-
ton avenue area where they have
been working. The sermons were
bi ought In three different homes.
Delmer Simpson brought a mes-
sage using the Scripture: Mark
2:3 4. Norman Fromm preached
fiom the Scripture John 12:27 and
his text was Why Did Jesus Die
on the Cross? The third service
was in the form of a testimony
service and was led by Miss Dor-
othy Dell Moore. Brother Fromm
also led In the singing and brought
a special number Grace
different types of music- sweet
bounce and hot swing. Careful
now you may be condemning one
of your favorite sweet ditties.
Swing and jazz now hold a
firmer foothold In the American
album ol music than ever before.
It Is indeed possible they may
change the name they have for
this type of music and improve
upon It. I know that blues will
not take the place of swing music.
Blues has its place in the music
world and on the dance floor. It
may become popular and so show
in popular music but it will never
replace swing. For a quarter of
a century America has been listen-
ing dancing and appreciating that
old two-four dance beat that is
so recognized in swing music. It
is too deeply imbedded now to
forbet and discard.
Combine all of the emotions
thoughts and creative work of our
greatest musicians and you have
swing music. Here's to swing
music and those swing musicians
who have made one hundred and
thirty million people forget their
worries and relax. Swing music

its students and fotmcr students)
v.e arc each the nucleus of this
school and in us lies its every po-
tentiality. Let us only realize it!
In that realization we shall have
become better ourselves. We shall
have widened our outlook deep-
ened our faith broadened our un-
derstanding nnd strengthened our
sense of responsibility. If only
we could In this year before us
fill each opportunity with the
fullness of our own possibilities
and increase our capacities and
abilities too certainly 1940 would
reap for us nil admirable conse-
quences. Let it behoove each student to
begin to learn to think. Few
greut thinkers ever lived; com-
paratively few people ever think
ut all so it should be considered
wise for us to begin to learn to
think. Let us try in this ever-
elmnglng world to establish our
own conception of life; let us
learn to face doubts or problems
or responsibilities with courage
and faith in God and ourselves;
let us drow conclusions as to our
own belnr- that will satisfy out-
own thoughts; then let us nltai
ourselves to fit our conclusions
and we shall find that inner peace
so important to happiness. Let
us not however warp ourselves
with individualism it Is lather
for us to bioaden our scope of un-
rstandlng by much liberalism
Someone once said in effect that
"we learn from history that we do
not learn ftom history." Let this
college and its students in this
new year be the exception that
proves the rule. Let us garner
from the vast store of opportunity
here even within the walls of this
school and with a united effort
of personal development make
Howard Payne by the end of 1940
a "Greater Howard Payne."
