tending have been asked to dress
in the fashions^ of "Dogpatch".
Club officers' say the dance will
ho different in several ways. The
price of admission has been set at
. 09 cents for couples and 49 cents
The Sadie Hawkins dance is a
backward dance where the girls
ask the boys for dates and pick up
- the tab for the night. This will be
a flower dance. The flowers will be
any thing that the girls can think
up. In dances of the past, the flow-
ers have been made from beer
, - cans, sun flowers, pipe cleaners, or
any other weird floral pattern that
the girls create.
There will be a prize for the
best - dressed boy and girl. The
■ dance will offer a various assort-
ment of contests. To name a few
there will be a sack race, hog call-
ing contest, a three-legged race,
and a potato race.
There will also be a contest
which requires a boy and a girl
to take the clothes of the opposite
sex from- a suitcase and see who
can put them on the faster. The.
entertainment committee has sev-
eral surprise attractions that will
be kept a secret untill the night of
the dance. There will be quite a
few novelty dances such as a Paul
Jones, the barn yard shuffle, and
many others that are too good to
The refreshment for the dance
will be "Yokemberry Tonic," if
the club members ever figure out
how to make it. The men have had
quite a few suggestions but the
women don't seem to care for the
mixtures that the boys have
thought up, Silver Key members
said. The pictures for the dance
will be taken in front of an out-
house of the "Dogpatch variety".
The men have been trying to
find a "Stupefyin' Jones," but they
haven't been able to find a body to
do justice to the original character.
The club is open for sensible sug-

Constitution : ,
The Tarleton State College Coun-
cil is buisly preparing for future
campus activities, working out im-
mediate problems, and is in the
process of revising its constitution.
Vice-President Roddy Gorman
stated, "The old constitution is
outdated. It isn't properly word-
ed nor explicit enough, plus the
fact that Tarleton's becoming a
four-year school is bringing the
need for new policies and divisions
of old ideas, as well as new ideas
to meet the coming change."
The new constitution will pro-
vide for an election committee to
supervise all elections concerning
the student body. Duties of of-
ficers will be defined more pre-
cisely, as the present constitution
is very vague in this direction. Al-
so the new constitution will pro-
vide membership from all four
classes rather than only two as
it does at the present time.
One of the biggest issues of the
Student Council at this time is
trying to find a different means of
financing its functions. This is the'
only student council in Texas that
has to raise its own funds, and
with changes of status, there will
have to be fantastic changes in
Along with these activities, the
Student Council is preparing for
the election of a new president and
vice-president for the Student
Council, rodeo week, and parent
day—the .last big event of the
council committee for further con-
The council declined to approve
the faculty committee's plans be-
cause they included no representa-.
tive. means of electing a Parent's
Day - Queen, president Billy Bob
The rejected plans called for
the nomination of two girls from .
each student organizations on the
campus. "The list' did not include '
some of the organizations on the
campus," Sandford commented,
illustrating with the exlusion of
the religious centers from the pro-
"Most members of the council
felt that the girls who are most
likely to receive nominations for
the honor belong to several clubs,
and will dominate nominations,"
