TSC Students Whoop it Up While
Year's First 'Big' Snow Remains
JDfcJNMS G. HUNEWELL
Friend of College
The peculiarities of a snow
storm showed itself in many ways
last week on the campus of Tar-
leton, The students took advant-
age of this rare phenomenon by
having a wonderful time, although
it sometimes proved to be *at the
expense of the employees and
The dean of women, Mrs. Eu-
gena Cotton, was ejected into the
fluffy white stuff and rolled
around by some of her charges at
the girls' dormitory. No comment
was available from Mrs. Cotton
about this gesture of affection.
Hilary Moors, an employee of the
college store, was also a victim
of-the mob. He was tossed out into
the snow by a group of students
after he had complained that they
were ruining the recreation hall
by tracking in snow. Mr. Moore
said he knew it was coming and
that he did not h-ave to be forced
out tc- meet his fata. The college
store employee said he was pretty
-sure of what the students were
going to do when they swept up
the floor of the recreation hall in
order to get him in a good mood.
He admits it was a lot of fun and
hie really didn't mind too much.
"It's snow fun" was a phrase
th-at could be heard many times
from Tarleton's co-eds as they
were bombarded by a volley of
snowballs rifled by Tarleton
sharp-shooters. The snow storm
seemed to do more than just give
the campus a coat of white. 1 he
thought of the day seemed to be
"I wish I" was a kid again, doing
wh-at L did again." Snowballs fly-
ing through the air caused a great
deal of movement among the stu-
dents trying to dodge the white
missiles that were being launched.
The camera fans were having
a glorious time maneuvering over
the campus taking pictures of «all
the events. There were several of
these individuals who were so en-
thusiastic about getting some
action shots that they assisted in
providing the action. A young lady
being thrown and rolled in the
snow is action at its best.
Tarleton also nvade the front
page of the Fort Worth Star Tele-
gram. A group of students felt
that the snow had given Tarleton
the right to assume the title of
the ne\v_winter Olympics, one dif-
ference being the new name they
placed at the front gate of the col-
lege. Squaw Valley become
"Squalid V-alley." Webster's de-
finition of the word squalid is foul,
unclean, wretched, miserable and
sordid." The students that were in-
volved with the sign have wished,
to remain anonymous for obvious
