STEPKBNVHiIJG, TEXAS, SATURDAY, SEPT. 16, 1933
With the host of husky looking*
material, Coaches Wisdom and
Sanders are working to build an-
other football team that will be
hard to atop. Out of the fifty four
men that are trying* for the squad
only eleven will go on the field, but
they will have a reserve from those
that are putting forth their best
efforts although they will not be
classed sis a regular.
Captain Hoover, end, Goldth-
waite, is looking fine to start the
season off at end. Other old squad
veterans back are Chink Palmer,
half; Logan, guard; Stapp, half;
Pennington, tackle. Besides these
lettemien the following old men
are out; Hebisen, full; Bob Ayers,
end; Adams, half; Sparks, guard;
Miller, tackle; Boharmon, end;
Yeary, end; Thompson, full; Ed
Word, half; Ray Couser, quarter.
Prospective talent that good
things are expected to develop from
includes Haworth, W axahaehie,
half; Taylor, Breckenridge, guard;
Butler, Graham, center; Smiley,
Clarksville, tackle; Crook, Gran-
bury, t&ekle; and several other un-
known stars. At such an early date
ifc is impossible to see what will
develop in some player unnoticed
The season will be started off
with a mew slate in a newly organ-
ized conference. Those members of
the conference are Tarleton, N. T.
A. C. (Grubbs), Weatherford Jun-
ior College, T. M. C., Terrell, Bap-
tist; College and Hillsboro Junior
College. Hillsboro does not have a
team this year, but will take part
in all other athletics.

Freshman Life In the Dormitory is Great;
There Are Many Worries to Contend With
Freshman life in the Dump is
great. All over the halls they are
running from one room to the
other trying to find their own.
Lois Hall has reconsidered and
decided to stay in Tarleton. awhile
Some of the freshmen at the din-
ing hall have quite a fancy way of
eating ice cream with a knife. Tch,
tch, what would Emily say!
Into disguise number 59, fresh-
men. (The one with the false mous-
taches and platinum toupe.) Every
time one of us poor unfortunates
sticks our head out the door some
senior yells "Hey, Freshman, car-
ry my trunk upstairs and then
come back and get my hand bag

make a pair? Oh boy, oh boy, oh
boy, but we know some girls who
wouldn't mind making it a four-

Mary Jo Denton thought it was a

to keep everybody out.
Undoubtedly Naomi Caraway's

FOR DAYS IN DAZE
Seniors who came to register on
the twelfth, thirteenth and four-
teenth days of September were
soon dazed by the stupendous num-
ber of freshmen they encountered.
It was only now and then that a
familiar face appeared from
among the bewildered countenan-
ces of the freshmen who lined the
After answering innumerable
questions set forth by anxious
freshmen the seniors were sustain-
ed only by the remembrance of
their own conduct a year ago.
The heart of each senior swelled
with pride as he finished his reg-
istration. He was proud of his
membership in a college that could
attract such an earnest group of
young men and women to its por-
FRESHMEN Of 3344
Freshmen numbering up into
the hundreds crowded the Tarleton
campus on the twelfth, thirteenth,
and fourteenth. Early in the morn-
ing of the twelfth freshmen seem-
ed to number three to one senior.
By afternoon of the thirteenth the
seniors disappeared almost alto-
gether after being trampled in a
line of anxious freshmen outnum-
bering them five to one.
Seniors identified by their dig-
nity and freshmen identified by
that portion of the body which lies
behind the ears made a very busy
group from 7 o'clock on the twelfth
until 4:80 on the thirteenth. Fresh-
men crowded the registrar's office
for registration, the dean's office
for information, the fiscal office
for paying of fees, and the armory
for military equipment.
A snake-like line remained in the
hall of the administration building
from the opening of the registrar's
office in the morning until closing
time in the afternoon. As fish pre-
dominated in this line, its general
characteristic was slowness. Fish
stood in that line until their collars
looked like empty sacks and their
faces looked like jig-saw puzzles.
The opening of school every September is a season of joy and
inspiration to me. Somehow It seems tike the beginning of life anew
when the students return to the campus.
I want to extend to all of you the most hearty welcome aad greet-
ings. To those of you who have been here before and have rendered
good service and been faithful to the Ideals of your training, I want
to express my appreciation. To those of you who are coming for the
firat time. I want to welcome you with the heartiest kind f wri-ute
and greetings of a true friend. We are anxious to he.'p tow wisw dre
striving to help themselves, x hep© this wilt be a happy for

SERGEANT'S PUP IS
Sergeant Buschmann's pup
seems to have made u deep impres-
sion on a freshman early in the ac-
quaintance of the two. The fresh-
man, noticed the pup's friendly na-
ture, naturally picked a play out
of him. The pup was delighted to
become so friendly with such an
excellent freshman. The climax in
their friendship came when the
pup scratched the freshman's
schedule, assignment caTd, etc.,
from his hands. The valuables were
finally recovered from the pup af-
ter a struggle and also after they
had been torn to bits by the pup.
Great enjoyment eame to the pup
while the freshman wailed bewild-
eredly, The freshman still can't
sc.; how any one could tolerate
such a perfectly horrible dog.
The faculty and all students and
former students of Tarleton have
been saddened by the death of Mr.
Garnett W. Froh on September 12,
1933. Mr. Froh has' been a teacher
of piano in the Tarleton conserva-
tory for eleven years. He was so
generous with his rare musical
gifts and so willing to co-operate
with and help all students that he
will be greatly missed. The student
body will especially miss him in
chapel where he always played the
piano. The conservatory will not
be the same place to those students
who studied and associated with
him there. He was loved and re-
spected by all who knew him. The
1933 Grassburr was dedicated to
him and his brother, Mr. Charles
W. Froh, director of the conserva-
A number of students were ask-
ed to be at Tarleton a week before
school started to help new students
in their efforts to "get started" at
Tarleton. Cadet officers have al-
ways been asked to do this at the
beginning of school. An innovation
has been made thia year in asking
a group of women students to as-
sist also in taking care of and as-
sisting generally in activities at
the first of the year. The girls ask-
ed to assist are council members of
the Association of Women Stu-
dents. They are as follows: Alice
Hamilton, Alice Meade, Geneva
Abbott, Bimioii Day, Eluuise Dun-
wody, Judine Geisendorff, Roxie
Gilbreath, Louise Pierson, Loraine
White, Dorothy Lynn Taylor, Ber-
nice Lemberg, and Frances Har-

On Ye Tarleton
On ye Tarleton, On ye Tarleton
Break right through that line,
Ever forward, ever onward,
We'll get there or die.
On ye Tarleton, On ye Tarleton
Fight for victory.
Fight fellows, Fight! Fight!
And win this game (day)
O, our hearts with joy are thrilling
When the Tarleton colors wave
And our spirits rise witii raptiuu
When the Tarleton sons are brave.
Fight for victory, fight for honor
And success shall crown the fight.
All hail the proud defenders
Of the Purple and the White.
Old Students Make Themselves at Home,
New Ones Are Timid at the Varsity Shop
The fall session of Tarleton has
begun and as ever—The Varsity is
teeming with activity. Co-eds and
Cadets find it the most popular
gathering place on the campus.
Mr. Moody, Braden, and White are
very busy getting the students
drinks and sandwiches. To judge
by the number that has already
been over, one would think that
the students came back hungry.
It is an easy matter to tell a
senior from a freshman at the
Varsity just by the way he enters.
The senior boldly opens the door
and quickly proceeds to make him-
self at home. The freshman hesi-
tates at the door and is? slow about
getting accustomed to the infor-
mality. Now, freshmen and sen-
iors who don't act like that aren't
true to their type,
Mr. Moody has a very attractive
supply lof everything a< 'student
needs. He would be glad to meet
all the new students as well as the
old. Everyone is always welcome
at the Varsity.
