A majority of TSC's athletes
would like to see a new nickname
The athletes feel the name
"Plowboys" is outdated, and un-
The few dissenting athletes feel
the nickname is just a nickname,
and really isn't expected to be rep-
resentative of eithei* the teams or
the student body.
"Tradition" is the reason they
give for not favoring a change,
There are few traditions at Tai'-
leton now. Replacing "Plowboys"
with another name would just
about kill all. the remaining tra-
ditions, said students not in. favqr
of a change.
But is this bad? Bill Vaught,
football and track letterman, says
no. "When Tarleton becomes a
foux,-year college -they should start
new traditions. Changing the name
wouldn't kill the spirit. It would
simply stifrt new spirit. When you
tell someone you're a Tarleton
Plowboy they think it's funny, I
think the- student body has the
right-to vote to change it."
Larry Jones, a tri-captain of the
track team, said,' "I don't 'like
Plowboys because I feel it's out-
dated. The alumni won't want it
changed because they were proud
to be Plowboys, but the students
now are not."
Jerry Carothers, tennis player,
said if the change is to be made,
this year's freshmen should be
the ones to decide upon a new
name, since they will be the first
class to graduate from Tarleton.
He feels that a name is just a
Another athlete that agrees with
this is all-conference basketball
player Marshall Proctor. He said,
"It's always been Plowboys, and
I don't know why anyone would
want to change it."
Jim Coleman, football captain
agrees that a new, more appropri-
ate nickname should be chosen.
Jim thinks another name should be
selected that Tarleton could be
proud of. "A new name and a win-
ning team could give Tarleton a
lot of prestige. A name won't win
games, but we should got one'we
don't have to be ashamed of.' '

endowed with handsome features
but blessed with some rather prom-
inent unsightly features have_ a
chance to parlay these liabilities

not more immediately forthcoming
after the announcement of the
UMOC contest because I felt quite
sure my friends would deem me
suitable material for this .contest.

not been justified and I feel that
I must instigate what they do not
have the audacity to do. I feel
confident that-1 will have' a large
number of supporters after stu-
dents learn of my advent into this
