COMMENTS BY PEACE
A personal letter to any student
i -with the "quit school" notion.
You have asked my opinion on a
yery important matter. You have
asked, "Should I quit school? There
■are several reasons why 1 should like
to auit. Some of the students stick
up their noses at me and make me
feel lower han a worm. Another reas-
on is that it costis so much to go to
school. Then think of all the work
the teachers give us!"
Student, you are partly to blame
for some of the reasons you have
stated. It is true that some students
think they are very high and mighty,
but you must learn to look over snobs
Just consider the source, attributing
their attitude to stupidity.
The high cost of school can not be
denied. It is one cause you mentioned,
which could be helped. For example,
we could use fewer note books; we
eould write on both sides of the pa-
per in daily work; we could use com-
position note books, thus.' avoiding
the replacement of sheets which may
be torn out. Yes, there are many ways
of cutting expenses. However, some
will be prompt in saying that it is
againsit the State school rules to
practice economy as shown in my
suggestions. But it is done in other
public schools (of that I am certain).
And then people preach to- us "Save,
Save!" Whether most people realize
it or not, we learn our basic habits
and characteristics at school when
we are young. Don't expect us to turn
out to be a group of Benjamin
Now about the amount of school

You have to do it systematically.
You '.ave to make it a habit. Every
■ * "J.iaent has his own method of study-
ing. Some study too little, some too
much. No matter how you study, re-
member, this—"Th'ere is no royul
road to learning." Most of the time
your diploma gets the job for you,
but a mere piece of paper decoi%ted
with signatures won't hold any job.
So, what you learn is according to
your own ambition.

a thing! Instead think of taking ad-
vantage of your excellent opportun-
P. S. Don't forget that mid-term
exams -".re just around the corner!

quickly and had such a csarming per-
sonality that she was called "Litele
Angel". Her rtative vellage became
"Angelina's Village" and the river

her. This gesl later played an exciting

Doing its share to decrease the
mortality rate of tuberculosis in the
United States, Texas is operating a
State Tuberculosis Sanatorium, locat-
ed 16 miles northwest of San Angelo
in Tom Green County. Stationed on a
$2,000,000 state-owned campus, the
sanatorium has 16 patients' dormi-
tories with a capacity of 865 beds.
There are two dozen or more main-
tenance and supply buildings.
S'an Jacinto is such a familiar place
name to most Texans that the origin
is almost never considered. The Span-
ish word "Jacinto" in an Anglicized
version is "Hyacinth", which dates
back to the ancient Greek myth of
Apollo and the youth who was turned
into a flower by a stream. The flower,
banked San Jacinto river probably
reminded the early explorers of this
The booming growth of an oil town
has become history several times in
Texas during the various oil rushes,
but the city of Seagraves furnishes a
particularly good illustration of the
phenomenon.. In two months it has
jumped from a village of 300 inhabi-
tants to a population of more than
2000. Over 145 carloads of lumber and
building material were unloaded there
Silk-making in West Texas may
seem a bit queer, but according to a
report on the early industries of the
seate, the cultivation of silk woscs
had a bright future. The description
says thae "The mulberry tree is of
common growth and thrives vigor-
ously in Western Texas, the climate
of which is well adtpted to the rear-
ing of silk worms." According to this
writer one of the best aspects of the
situation was that the silk industry
"would afford an easy and advan-
tageous occupation to femtles and
A eomantic story is behind the

A carload of calves every three
minutes was the selling record made
last October when the price of West
Texas calves and the number of out-
of-state buyers reached a new high

Marfa. Fifty carloads of calves were
sold in two hours and thirty minutes.
Representatives of nine states were
there o buy.
| A motley mixture is poured intc
the folk tunes of Texas. The negro
songs which form such a great part
of our handed down music are filled
with Spanish and French music an''
rhythms. The cowboy songs, which
i spell "Texas" to so many people, are
usually adaptations from songs the
cattlemen heard on the sea and else-
where and sang so .much on the
range that the music gradually be-
came associated with them. Some of
the most original tunes came from
the first Mexican cowboys.
