,-'THE BURRO, ,
When Mr. Frazier came to Mineral Wells High School, a new era
in athletics began, and because of his untiring efforts, Mineral Wells was
put on the map in the High School athletics of Texas.
As an athlete, Mr. Frazier has made an enviable record. In his high
school days, he was the main stay of the football eleven, played on the
Basketball and Baseball teams, and he was individual point winner in all
the State meets every year. With his efforts his High School won every
meet during his last two years there. During his years at college he
played on the football team at A. & M. College, the football team at
Baylor University, and was a member of the track team at Baylor. Mr.
Frazier is one of the greatest hurdlers in America. He holds the Junior
Amateur record in the low hurdles, and was selected by Charlie Paddock,
world's premier sprinter, for a place on the all-American Track Team this
As a coach, Mr. Frazier has proved himself efficient and capable.
Last fall he gave Mineral Wells High School the best football team we
have ever had. Under difficult circumstances he built up a good basket-
ball team and he gave us recognition in track circles all over Texas, mak-
ing our High School place in every track meet they attended.
Mr. Frazier's idea of sportsmanship and advice to us can be found
in the following lines:
Play the game, but play it fairly,
Fight to win, but meet men squarely.
Tackle hard and hit the line-
Do your best but don't you whine.
Play to win, but every inning,
Keep in mind there's more than winning.
Victory's sweet, but good or ill,
An honest name is sweeter still.
Reach your goal by hard endeavor,
But by trick and cunning never.
Win or lose though bruised and lamed;
Let night find you unashamed.
For his faithfulness, courage, hard work and genial good humor we
lovingly dedicate our section of athletics to our friend, R. C. Frazier.
