I am lounging about the Dump
porch when in comes Jennie Lee
with a doting swain. Several min-
utes later she again comes in with
two men. The 1'ollowing evening
she repeated this spectacular per-
formance. The question is: When
does she go out, I only see her
come in. Where do they come
from? Where do they go? HOW
does she do it?

There's a sudden deluge of dif-

no more dancing.
The Gentleman at the Keyhole

Henry Todd as a lady-killer.
Heard he was going to run for
head yell-leader next year.
And I know something about
that pretty Stafford boy, Yates.
The shrill bird trills, the impres-

Our Weary Student Trudges Over to the
Recreation Building and Views the View
Yawning from the lack of sleep
and the burden of over-estimated
assignments in class work that
downs the average struggling stu-
dent, the student enters the Recre-
ation Hall with the purpose of rest
during the vacant hour. An un-
usual environment confronts him,
and he is pleased beyond expres-
The music from the radio lifts
the dreary mind from the thoughts
of the classwork at that moment.
You may sink down into a vacant
cushioned parlor chair and rest
your head on the high back with-
out the fear of having someone
constantly bothering you.
Strange as it may appear, about
one-third of those present are
studying, one-third playing games,
and the other third doing nothing,
loitering, resting, and carrying on
conversations. The relaxation in a
place of this sort means much
more than standing in the halls or
sitting on the campus.
Well, there is unusually loud
laughing and talking about the
ping-pong table. Mr. Wilkins is
playing and to his dismay, he finds
he cannot hit the small white ball
with the "bumble-bee" paddle.
From the window of the candy
concession, Hoover and Breedlove
lean over the counter and watch
the students at work and play.
Mr. Birdwell walks around
among the students and then, to
the radio. Here he unlocks the
radio and changes the program.
Lively music is heard; so he locks
the instrument. About the hall you
notice those seated patting their
feet unconsciously. The reason
that the radio has to be locked is
that everyone would be trying to
get a program and no one would
like .any of them.
On four tables games are being
played. Two are bridge, and two
are forty-two. Only one checker
game is in operation. Those seated
on the sofas and chairs are either
studying or talking.
With pleasure come a few dis-
pleasures. A few students that
care nothing for the time that they
have at leisure are very selfish.
They bother others that are trying
to rest or study. They think them-
selves very popular-—but to hear
comments, it sounds otherwise.
Many of the students found
studying in the Recreation Hall
are never found otherwise in any
other place. The library is just as
full as ever. This is a building of
relaxation, recreation, and worthy
use of leisure.
Someone enters the south door;
his feet slip out from under him.
Well, he hits the floor first and
later his books fall. No damage is
done, but some one kindly asks
him to close the door for the wind
is very cold.
There goes the class bell; so off
to class you go feeling very much
refreshed by the soft chairs and
the music.—H. E. B.
Reveille's Departure Observed Lamented,
And Speculated On By Many Students
The campus pup has left the
campus and the town, perhaps. Its
whereabouts is not exactly known,
but there are a few who might be
able to advance theories as to the
disappearance of the small black
and white dog that did scamper
and play about the campus. The
little pooch, which was very
friendly, became absent from the
campus about a week before
The mayor in town here passed
an order around dliring the first
week of December that all dogs in
the city limits must be vaccinated
against rabies or else the hound
would automatically disappear. No
one got the campus pup a nice col-
lar with a vaccination tag on it;
so by law and order, the dog has
A short time before the Thanks-
giving holidays a black and white
pup came to the campus to enjoy
the life of the Tarleton cadets and
co-eds. W. A. Boney was the spec-
ial one that it stayed with. It was
found at drill, on the Dining Hall
steps, on the concrete porch of the
Library, in the halls of the build-
ings, and on the Dormitory porch
at nights. This cheerful animal
was friendly to everyone, and
would play with those who had
time to speak to it.
Sympathies are Extended for Terrible
Inconvenience of Ever Having Mondays
Of all sad words of pencils
The saddest are these,
How the week begins!
The secret of bad lessons, head-
aches, sleepy eyes, and low grades
is none other than the one word—
and how much IS contained in it—■
Monday. More often than being
the glad beginning, it is the sad
ending of a week-end of fun and
frolic. When the bugle blows on
Monday morning, many students
are he&rd to remark, "I wish there
weren't any Mondays." Then we
wonder why such a wish is made.
Don't we all know that we
wouldn't have Tuesday, Wednes-
day, and the other days if we
didn't have brave ole Monday to
break the ice and begin? The sun
always shines just as brightly
then as any other time. The North
wind doesn't mind the first dav of
the week, so why should wo

Monday has a sense or awe to
me. They are so different from the
day preceding. There's no other
day in the week which has such
a pleasant day before it as does
Monday. When the clasf, bells ring,
and the echo of feet is heard as
students bustle down the halls,
one hears a pleasant Bound re-
sembling the tinkling of bells. Lis-
ten for it nest Monday morning
and test your sense of observation.
I wonder how many Pollyannas
there are among us? Remember
she said: "I'm glad when Monday
comes, because it's a whole week
until there's another."
