JUNIORS of Hardin-Simmons university entertained the seniors with the annual
banquet Monday night, January 14, in the Wooten Hotel ballroom.
The banquet hall was decorated to resemble a scene on a West Texas ranch.
Cactus were growing on the tables, saddles were setting on corral fences, and an
orchestra of sheep herders furnished typical western music throughout the evening.
The program was opened with a brief talk by Billy Morrow, Junior foreman,
and was followed by talks from J. L. Desmond and Professor Junell.
Pete Shaw, cowboy crooner, sang several popular selections while chow was
being served. He was accompanied at the piano by Eloise Norred. Roundhead
presented an original interpretation of a Cowboy dance.
The program was concluded by talks from Dr. Rupert N. Richardson, Prof. H. R.
Arrant, Miss Mary E. Head, Dr. Julius Olsen, Mr. M. B. McClure, Prof. J. E. Burnam,
and Otho Polk.
