will the harvest be?
THE student body did a most
worthy thing when they voted to use
the surplus J-Tac and Grassburr
funds to purchase furniture for the
Grassburr office, sweaters for T (lit-
erary) awards, and gold baseballs for
Tarleton's championship baseball
team. It is this spirit, of sacrifice,
loyalty, and reward that is malting
Tarleton' known far and, wide as the
greatest junior college in the United
The senior clsis.3..of. Ip25. has con-
tributed more' to the upbuilding of
Tarleton, materially, traditionally and
lastingly from every standpoint. We'
point with pride to our achievements,
■especially do we pride ourselves in the
gatewayi that stands as a beacon to
the world. Many will pass through
its portals, but it will awlays stand as
a monument to the class of '25. The
dedication exercises were held Mon-
day night and it was one of the most
impressive programs yet rendered.
TARLETON students are well
pleased with the 1925 Grassburr. It
is a book to be proud of, worthy of
the institution it represents in every
detail. Editor Orton and his staff are
to be congratulated for this splendid
achievement, especially under the ter-
rible conditions with which they were
REVIEWING Tarleton's athletic
achievements during the year we
point with some pride to our football,
basketball, and track successes, and
: then we jump up with glee at the
fitting climax furnished.by the Plow-
boys of the diamond—and there shall
be more in the'future.
BASEBALL championships are few
and hard to get, but we won ours
fairly, squarely, and convincingly.
Nobody can kick, except that too few
were out to see the final results. It
is a shame that so few students at-
tended the game—but there were rea-
sons galore—yet after it is all said
and done and the final decision is:
made, Tarleton has supported her
ON—yes, some of us are going on
r—on to other fields. We are to leave
Tarleton and yet we will be here in
' spirit. Why? Nobody knows. But
surely whatever we attempt in after
life our actions and deeds will be
stamped by Tarleton—it is that spirit
of. loyalty to principle, loyalty to self,
loyalty to country—and service, that
says go on—go on—go on.
Picnics and sunrise breakfasts
seem to be popular pastime for the
Senior Home girls.
IN CLASSOF FICES
The political pot simmered, boiled,
and almost exploded last Tuesday
morning and as a result student offic-
ers of next year were elected. In
some cases very close counts were
The race for president of the stud-
ent council was hotly contested,
there being four in the race. Leonard
Behrens was elected president and
Gordon Cady was elected to the vice
presidency. Roy Ward was in the
race weil up to the last.
, Misg Evelyn Floyd; junior beauty,
-was elected to the Secretaryship. She
is very popular with the student body-
arid although much competition was
presented in the persons of Carroll
Cox, Mary Ellen Long, and Helen
White, the outcome was almost evi-
dent after the first ballot.
Harry McKane, nominee for editor-
in-chief of the Grassburr had no op-
position and was the unanimous choice
of the student body.
For business manager, Miss Mar-
jorie Neblett, staff nominee had no

WORDS OF WISDOM
In this farewell issue I wish to express to the students and
faculty my profoundest appreciation for their unswerving loy-
alty to me and the institution. We are now closing the great-
est year that Tarleton has ever had. It is a great year not
merely because the number of' students has exceeded that of,
any former year, but because of the devotion of the student
body and the faculty to their duties. I tiave' never worked
with a group of people with better idedls and standards of life
than that which has characterized our student body and facul-
ty members this year. Some of you are leaving to join the
host of Tarletonites who have entered upon life's career and
are performing the big task of citizenship in the State. Hay
I expect all of you who are leaving this year to attain the- same
height of efficiency in serving ,as has been attained by those,
who have gone out before you. The name of Tarleton has be-
come respected wherevei; it has become known through the
faithful and efficient service rendered by her sons and daugh-
ters, and because of the high ideals Of life that have been mam-
tairiedrb/ tfieitt fn theirJ standard® of living and' conduct,
My greatest pleasure will come to me out of having the priv-
ilege of rendering service to you.
J. THOMAS DAVIS, Dean.
HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT
HOLDS ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE
* Friday afternoon May 22, the Home
Economics Department held their an-
imal open house exhibit between the
hours of three and six o'clock. All
of the rooms were very beautifully
decorated with baskets of flowers, the
baskets being made under Miss Walk-
er's instruction in her department.
The basketry scheme was carried
throughout the exhibit. The register,
which each oAe signed oh entering the
hall, was painted by Miss Wylie in a
basket design. To one going through
there seemed to be a thousand people
so of course, it was a great success.
In reality four hundred and forty-two
ladies and gentlemen passed through
•Mrs. Chamberlin's clothing exhibit
was visited first, where one saw all
sorts of made-over problems (you
know Mrs. Chamberlin can teach the
girls to do most anything), baby
clothes, ladies dresses, millinery, mil-
linery accessories, and articles from
the woodshop and mechanical drawing
room. Very few people had realized
before that the girls were capable of
making furniture, such as tools, book
stands, and tables and house plans,
too. Did you see the white Voile
dress in the glass case over in the
corner? That was one of the grad-
uation dresses made in the Senior
clothing class. The whole of this ex-
hibit was characteristic of Mrs.
Chamberlin's good teaching.
After leaving this room one mount-
ed the stairs and entered Miss Wylie's
art department. True' artists had
been at work in there, it was plain to
be seen. Miss Wylie's students. al-
ways are good artists. Tapestries, oil
paintings, water colors, and in fact
