At First Meeting
President E. J. Howell welcomed
this year's freshmen last week
wi,t.h congratulations, warnings,
The .president's address began a
week .of tests and fun for frosh
which included three dances, the
President's Reception, a yell meet-
ing, church receptions, and the
season's first football game.
President Howell in his speecli
warned the frosh that "Tarleton is
a hard school," but added later,
"You have come here to work."
In congratulating them on their
decision to come to Tarleton, he
explained that the college- enjoys
one of the highest reputations in
American junior colleges, and that
it is a member of several accredit-
ed educational organizations.
The president told the new class
something of the background of
the school and what was expected
of them as freshmen, and conclud-
ed by saying that this year prom-
ised to be one of the best ever.
Or Alma Mater?
Where to go ? Where not to
go ? That is the question for
President and Mrs. Howell,
Whether to see the .president's
alma mater, A&M, play football,
whether to §ee the Tarleton
tqam fight for the Purple -and
.White, or whether to see son
Jimmy in the Stephenville High
School games ?
That is the problem facing the
Howells. Where to go and
. where not to go"?
