MEET HERE IN SPRING
Except for the basket ball tourna-
ments, all events of the Cherokee
County Interscholastic League will be
:held in Rusk this year, and Rusk was
vdesignated as the permanent meet lo-
cation by the Executive Committee
•on Novmber tenth. Their decision fol-
lowed the suggestion made at a
meeting of some of the school super-
intendents of the county some time ' feriority complex.
be held in Nacogdoches on' December
II. The contest will be held at Steph-
en F. Austin State Teachers College
and will be given by the Future Home
Makers and by the Future Farmers
of America. ' '
The central idea of the 'Rusk exhib-
it is the "Live at home" slogan. Ev-
ery contribution to the exhibit will be
a project carried out by a boy or
girl to contribute to better living at
home. Meats and vegetables they
themselves have raised or canned,
cakes and bread, examples of graft-
ing, budding, knives, self-feeders for
chickens, dresses, embroidery, home
made rug, grains, cotton and so forth
will help to make un the exhibit.
During the exhibition there will be
free entertainment for atfernoon and
evening. The entire show will be free
to the public. All, especially the home
communities, are invited and urged
for Edith's being seen so much with
for Louise's late houi's.
for Maxine's total lack of an in-
•ago. Hitherto the meet has rotated
annually between Rusk, Jacksonville,
and Alto, but since Rusk is the cen-
tral point in the county, it seems the
logical place for the meet.
In addition to being properly lo-
cated for a gathering place for the
-schools of the county, Rusk is fully
equipped to handle the various events

COMMENTS BY PEACE
High school football is a friendly
rivalry between more or less equally
matched teams. Students acquaint
themselves with other students of
other schools. By this association they
learn to be sociable and to be fair
Football is and can be kept an ad-
vantage to the school. It is up to the
students and the public to keep it so.
There were many things said dur-
ing and after the Rusk-Tatum game
that, in our opinion, did not exactly
help the football cause. First of all
after arriving in Tatum a few began
commenting on the smallness of the
town. Even though Rusk is somewhat
larger than Tattum and this school
has progressed more, it certainly isn't
the largest city in the world. Anyway,
intelligent people do not judge others
by whether they come from a small
or large city nor by whether they be
as poor as old Job's turkey or so rich
that their names spell gold with a
Then when the game had started
and the Tatum team was winning,
some of the people began mumbling
about unfairness and cheating. (Yes,
even though we are very deeply
ashamed of it, we actually heard
such remarks!) We may not be able
to win every game but we ought at
least be able to be good sports.
Then to top all of this off, the next
day at school the football boys and
the pep squad had an argument. The
pep squad has as much right to see
game as anyone. If grouped together
on a grandstand, each member of the
program will be givet): ; • i.

Laughing Around the World
With IRVIN S. COBB
The Voice of Experience
By IRVIN S. COBB
AN English writer who served a London daily as correspondent during
* the Great War, told me he was present when this happened:
One of the big trans-continental liners, which had been converted
into a transport, was passing through the Suez Canal, bearing a contin-
gen: of British volunteers for service in the Eastern campaign against
the Turks. The big ship was moving very slowly. The soldiers aboard,
none of whom had seen any actual fighting as yet and very little
military life except in the training-camps at home, lined the guards,
gazing upon the unaccustomed sights about them.
On the nearermost bank of the canal, within easy hailing distance
of the passing ship, an Australian veteran was stretched flat upon the
sand. He was burn black by the suns, his uniform was in tatters, and
he had about him the unmistakable look of one who had seen hard
campaigning and plenty of it. He neither moved nor spoke until the
creeping transport fairly was abreast of him. Then he lifted his head,
and across the intervening strip of water sent the rallying cry of the
"Are we down-'earted?"
Back from the crowded decks of the liner came the customary
answer, thundered forth in chorus by hundreds of voices:
"Well," said the Australian cheerfully, "you jolly soon will be!"

'time entertaining their dates instead
' of yelling. This is not so bad in one
| way, bieaUse the pep squad can do
! well enough without them. The bad
' part of it is that the ether members
| think that if these few get in the
j game because -of their uniforms and
yet do not. have to yell, why should 1
•they. What else could they think?.
■One ether thing which contributed
to I the mutiny was -the desertion of.
the yell leaders when .the game •was:
'•half over and who did not reappear
for several minutes. Remember, pep
• quad, you elected the leaders. The
football boys and many of the ether
■students had no say-so in the .'mat-
ter. so if you elected the leaders to
leave'you stranded in the middle
of the game, you have yourselves to
blame. However, ,we think the -yell!
fea'ders have done very well. This is
their first desertion. • ,
We lost 11 jrame. We are likely to,
lose many things in life but there is
a'great lejscn in losing. There is the
art of knowing how tc- lose and mak-
ing that loss beneficial to us later...
Students, the greatest test of man
h to put all the odds against him and,
de-troy all hope. Do you back away
from a losing battle cr do you grin
and fight harder? .
LATIN CLUB MEETS
The I.atin Club met at the Heme
Economics Building at 12 o'clock for
an hour session. The meeting was
called to order by the Primus Con-
sul, Lorraine Currie, and the roll was
called with each student answering
with the name of a famous Roman.
The absence of Audie and Janice Ray
was regretted by everyone.
Mrs. Spindle and all of the stu-
dents partook of a generous school
lunch while the program was being
given. The program was very enter-
taining and everyone is looking for-
ward to the meeting next Wednesday,
