Students, I am dedicating my j
column this week to two girls and
two boys of this school, who real-
ly deserve to be mentioned. They
are Gladys Nelson and Rose Mil- <
dred McDonald, the girl debaters
and Billy Westphal and John
Garrett Long, the boy debaters.
Many of you do not really know
how to appreciate them. Many
of you like to hear them speak
during your class period so you
won't have a lesson. You aren't
really interested in what they
have to say.
They have spent many hours
preparing their speeches and, too,
when you're at home reading
some interesting novel they
have their nose stuck in some sort
of debate book. You very sel-
dom see them without their de-
bating material. Maybe some
nights when you girls are out
on a date these two girls are at
Miss Leake's getting prepared to
meet the competion they are sure
to have at District Meet.
The girls have debated three
years, and lost the first two times
but they did not give up.
The girls should be congratu-
lated for the splendid work they
have been doing and the remark-
able sportsmanship they have
shown throughout the years they
have been debating.
Here's hoping that they come
out on top at the district meet and
march onward to the state con-
gram committee consisted of a
blond, brunette, and an inter-

YOU HAVE decided on the number of acres
planted to cotton this year. The "size" of those
acres depends upon the yield and quality of the
crop they produce and the profits which they re-
turn. Cotton rust and wilt decrease the size of a
cotton acre. There was more cotton rust in the
South last year than ever before reported. Cotton
rust is potash hunger. To control rust and also to
reduce wilt, apply50-100pounds of muriate of pot-
ash in a nitrogen-potash top-dresser immediate-
ly after chopping if your fertilizer at planting did
not contain enough potash. Consult your county
agent or experiment station on your soil require-
ments. See your fertilizer manufacturer or dealer
about nitrogen-potash top-dressers.

Endurance is the most import-
ant word in the English language.
In everything we go at we must
have endurance. For an example,
let us take the track team. Day
after day the boys go out on the
field and run until they feel that
they are ready to fall, then take
exercise to help build up their
bodies and bj observing very
strict rules. They must have en-
durance to keep training. The
laggird will always fall out after
the first few days and remark
that it is too hard work not to
get anything out of it. But fol-
low that boy who had the stick-
ability to stay with it to the end
If he runs a good race, he is re-
paid for all his time and work.
If he wins, he wouldn't take any
amount of money for the simple
honor of winning. If we stick
with anything we are bound to
win. If we are running a race,
we may not come in first; but we
have fought a battle within our-
selves and conquered. We have
won manhood and have shown
that when we undertake a thing
we do not quit on the job. The
business world is looking for alert
young men who are not afraid of
hardwork and will give them a
boost whenever possible. A man
has already gone through most
of his life is looking back to find
that young man who can replace
him and carry on the work that
he has started. Let us be of the
nature that has endurance and be
on hand when that man is hunt-
ing his successor. Don't give up.

Greater Texas and Pan American
exposition, to open in Dallas June

Mr. Snyder left a scroll with
the official invitation to Rusk
with Mayor E. R. Gregg.
In his visit here the exposition
representative pointed out the
various ways in which the entire
Southwest will benefit from the
exposition, not only as an incen-
tive for further tourist travel but
as a means for acquainting the
20 republics of Latin Ameraca
with the products and materials
this section has to offer them.
The Pan American hall, which
will house the governmental and
industrial exhibits from Latin
America at the fair, was described
in detail by Snyder to the local
schools. He will emphasize the
excellent opportunity school chil-
dren will have to study each of
the Latin American nations by the
exhibits their governments main-
tain in this building. In other
words, the exposition will provide
for them the opportunity to go to
school abroad right at home he
