BIX YEARS SERVING THE COLLEGE PEOPLE
. * . . Where People Always Come Back to Trade
IS BOAST OF ALL
, When speaking of Junior Colleges,
Tarleton naturally takes first place.
Why? We just take it for granted
and go on. But there is something—
i several things that put a school, a
person, a business, or anything at the
, top of the ladder.
When one spends two years in and
. around Tarleton, he learns that his
heart can have two loves. Not only
can he find a little fairy in blue—or
a prince in khaki—but he also finds
a different kind of love—the love for
his school, its associations, and what
it stands for.
' He doesn't find cliques and clans
here as he does in other schools. He
has a feeling of brotherhood for all
the other students. He has a word of
greeting for every one he meets be-
i cause he is in one big fraternity. The
democracy that is here at Tarleton is
. not found everywhere.
.. Does it mean anything to have all
, the other Junior Colleges out after,
your.scalp in athletics, debates, etc.?
■ i Tljey realizeV Tarleton's superiority
when they say, "If you can beat Tar-
leton, we' will have had a successful
That old "pep" is the top rung in
the ladder too. It. takes "pep"—school
, spirit—to put over' a victory. Those
teams lag-—do not put out their best

them. Football and basketball are so
exeiting that it is easy to put out a
lot of "pep" then. Now is the time
for t'he students to show some real
The baseball 'team and the track
team need your support. If you can,
go out and watch them practice, Show
that you are interested. By all means
go to the games, if you can possibly
do so. Some good yelling makes a
fellow knock two-baggers and home-
rujis when he might have fanned, or
maybe hit a single. "Pep" works won-
Undpr certain conditions, a human
being does' things that he would alter-
wards say he couldn't do again, A
scared person can do marvelous feats
on the spur of the moment. An ath-
lete, running a race, can run fast; but
if someone is helping him run by yell-
ing encouragement to him from the
side lines, he can run faster. Let's
give them a lift every time they need
it; That is the way to keep Tarleton
We ex-students believe Tarleton is
on the top rung of the ladder*, and is
there to stay. Keep it first, not only
in athletics, but in every other way.
Just do your bit.

ferred upon Miss Ethel Webb, daugh-
ter of S.- J. Webb, who is county home
demonstration agent at Wichita Falls.
She is to be sent to Europe to study
rural • problems in various countries.
Ethel graduated in the home econom-
ics department at Tarleton a few years
ago. Later she went to C. I. A. to
pursue her'studies in this line; but the
extension leaders of the State had
their eyes upon her, and three months
before she was to take her degree
there she was asked to become home
demonstration agent in Wichita coun-
ty. She accepted the position, which
she still holds. The following clip-
ping, from the Wichita Daily Times,
will be of interest to all who like to
see our home girls make good:
"Three years of hard, steady work
—work done in an effort to bring
about closer relationship between the
people of the city and the people of
the country—have brought their re-
ward to Miss Ethel Louise Webb,

"Miss Webb's reward comes in the
way of a four-month tour of Europe,
She has received official notice from
the extension department of the A. &
M, College, College Station, that she
was one of the two demonstration
agents selected out of the 93 in this
State to make the tpp.

Vernon "Bunt" Adams, '21, is often
seen on the campus, this being in his
territory. "Bunt" is selling athletic
goods for C. A. Bryant Co, of Dallas,
and seemingly is as aggressive and as
hard working as when he wore the
purple, and white, back in '18, '19, '20,
and '21 and was known as the best
fullback in junior college circles.
, Ernest R. "Lopse" Baker, '24, is
now employed in the auditing- depart-
ment of the Pierce Petroleum Corpo-
ration at Dallas. Yes, Etoile is cook-
ing his meals and darning his socks.
"Louse" is another shining example of
what a two year siege of "Footeology"
will do for a boy.

degree in business administration
from Oklahoma University in Janu-
ary, is now in the accouriting depart-
ment of the International Harvester

ON TARLETON FACULTY
"Spud" Jones,' '26, is' another ex-
Tarletonite who is making good in his
home town, being the principal of the
Being of an inquisitive nature, and
especially so with reference to the
whereabouts and welfare of ex-Tar-
letonites, the writer conducted a facul-
ty survey the other day1 to determine
how many former Tarleton student's
are now employed by the college. It
was found that eighteen former stu-
dents are now serving their Alma
Mater in various capacities.
Associate Dean Geo. O. Ferguson
heads the list. Dean Ferguson attend-
ed John Tarleton in 1899, 1900, and
1902. After taking degrees from the
University of Texas and the Univer-
sity of Chicago, he returned to Tarle-
ton in 1913 as a member of the teach^
ing staff. From that date until this
he has been continuously connected
with the college, his duties having
comprised everything from teaching
about half the curriculum back in the
days when Tarleton was a private
school to his present position of head
of the economics department and as-
sociate dean, of the college. During
the year of 1921-22 he served as reg-
Next in order comes Neal Gearreald,
who is at present Director of the
School of Agriculture. Mr. Gearreald
took his A.B. degree from Tarleton in
1909, the last year in which the col-
lege offered a degree. After having
taught in various public school sys-
tems of the State and taking his de-
gree from, the A. & M. College of
Texas, he returned to Tarleton in 1919
as registrar. In 1921 he assumed the
duties of his present position.
Other members of the School of
Agriculture faculty who received their
basic training in Tarleton are E. C.
Johnson, '21, instructor in vocational
education,, and Ojjus Stephens, '25, sec-
retary of the School of Agriculture.
Roy E. Hudspeth, '22, for the past
three years has been assistant coach
of all Tarleton athletic teams and has
made a very creditable showing. In
his school days "Hudsey" was a three
letter man, and his popularity was
shown by the fact that- he-was-presi-
dent of his class for three years.
Ch'as. McCleskey, '22, after teaching
one ,year in the Stephenville, Public
Schools, and attending A, & M. Col-
lege of Texas and Iowa State College
of Ames, Iowa, returned to his old
"stomping ground" as assistant pro-
fessor of biology.
In the registrar's office it seems
that only Foote trained secretaries
are efficient enough to keep up with
the demerit lists, etc. Miss Louise
Barekman, valedictorian^ of the class
of '22; is "assistant registrar, and it is
said that she has never failed to give
any boy his just number of demerits.
Miss Lillian Edwards, her efficient as-
sistant, is a graduate of '26.
C. D. Ownby, /business manager
of the college, seemingly finds Tarle-
ton trained accountants capable of un-
derstanding the complicated college
system of accounts, as both Dace
Myers and H. C. Belcher are former
students and received their instruc-
tions in the gentle art of juggling
figures from Prof, J, W, Foote.
In the Commercial Arts department
both assistants, J. E. Oliver and Miss
Grace Wickline, are Tarleton gradu-
Miss Minn Ferguson is a member of
the music faculty and a former stu-
dent of Tarleton.
In the English department is found
Irene Ellis of the class of '23, who aids
Miss Mahan in making colle'ge life a
nightmare for the student who comes
to college for a vacation.
Carl Birdwell, '22, after teaching
for three years returned to the college
in 1926 as manager of the CpUege

year he has been very capably assist?
ed by H. L; "Fats" Boyer, who for the

college electrician, was a student in
the college for a number of years.
