KEEPING UP WITH THE EXES

In answer to several requests, we
.wish to- announce that the second
term of summer school will start July
13 and end August 21. You teachers
who are spending your summer doing
nothing will be sorry that you have
not better equipped yourselves when
a good position opens for someone
who has a Master's Degree, or a de-
gree of any type. Make your plans
to get an additional six or seven
hours off this second term. Our busi-
ness office will work with you if there
is a financial problem.
The Ex-Cowgirls had a breakfast
on the morning of the day of the big
banquet. Since that time, several
girls have asked me why there was
not a better turn-out. There are
hundreds of ex-cowgirls, and only a
small number came. One girl sked
if I would publish that they were
anxious to hear from all cowgirls
who were interested in giving any
new ideas for next year. Remember
this ex-cowgirls, your organization is
only as strong as you are! If you
don't fall in line and help it grow,
then it will have a meager existence.
The Cowboy Band is planning to have
a rousing homecoming this fall, and
we are wondering if we will have the
same problem of too many wives, jobs,
anid children. You live only once on
this earth, so why not make the most
of it by enjoying yourselves at these
functions when they are given for
