THE STUDENT’S CODE OF
As a student I am determined:
To play the game to the limit of my
capacities, giving to each course the
greatest care and attention.
To strive Jo carry more than my
own burden, to do a. little more than
my share, not seeking help from others.
To correct my faults, ever eager to
learn and improve, never seeking to
cover up or conceal mistakes made.
To carry the fight to the class room
with the spirit of the “Old Guard that
dies but never surrenders.”
To be unselfish in endeavor, caring
more for satisfaction that comes from
doing a thing well than for praise.
To glory in doing the impossible,
never saying “that’s too hard; I’ll never
be. able, to. do that.”
To hate an alibi, knowing that the
man \yho makes excuses admits hi9
weakness and has a dwarfed soul.
To pise aboye obstacles, to study
harder .when making a D than when
making gn A .
To fight with an unconquerable spir-
it, realizing with every act that the
“deed is the measure of the man.”

To Mr. Evans goes the credit for
making it possible for several students
tc get rooms free of charge and to get
employment by means of which they can
defray their . entire expenses. At the
beginning of the summer session a
cozy and unique little room was pre-
pared. under the seats of the grand-
stand. This room is well ventilated
and is equipped with all modern con-
veniences. It is now occupied by three
Of the most prominent boys in this
school, two of which have made an
enviable record in athletics. You
woiuld be surprised to enter this little
apartment and see just how typical
it is of college life. The walls are
neatly painted and varnished, thereby
making a pretty design. They are also
decorated with the various pennants
and emblems of several different col-
leges. All of these things were made
doubly interesting when the reporter
parked in an easy arm chair to be
cooled by an,electric fan.
At the resort a room similar to this
one was- fixed up in the east end of
the bath house. Two boys are now
occupying, this room. It is absolutely

Three boys are now rooming at the
Normal Hospital free of charge. These
boys work at the cafeteria also.
There are now under construction at
the cafeteria several rooms which will
be occupied by normal students next
Mr. Evans is directly responsible for
this splendid work, and he deserves
no small amount of credit for it. To
him also goes the credit for making
arrangements to furnish work for sev-
eral boys who are attending school here.
The fact that Mr! Arnold is now
giving employment to about thirteen
boys and two girls at the cafeteria
should not be overlooked. These boys
and girls are required to work only
three hours a day and in return they
receive their meals. Mr. Arnold, you
are indeed rendering a great service
to this school by furnishing work for
such a number of colelge students.
The following is a brief 'history of
the boys who are defraying all of their
expenses through S. W. T. N. C.:
Mr. Alfred M. Weir is from Eddy,
Texas. He attended High School at
his home town for three years and
played footbal each year there. His
next year of school was spent at Deni-
son where he made a letter in both
football and baseball.
1918 finds Mr. Weir enrolled in Bay-
lor. Shortly afterwards the Bears
found that they had enlisted a level-
headed and consistent player on their
football squad. This player was no
other than Alfred Weir, and he justi-
fied the Bears in their conclusions by
starring on their team for two years.
For some reason, probably a trick
of fate, Weir got moving in his head
and in 1921 we find him enrolled in old
S. W. T. N. C. He says he liked Bay-
lor and the Bears, but likes Normal
and the Bobcats more.
Everybody who witnessed or read
about the football games of last sea-
son knows Alfred Weir, because he was
one of Normal’s best men. He filled
the position of left half and was a
demon on open field running. In fact,
Weir was an all around good football
man. He played his part and played
it well. Weir was injured n the lat-
ter part of the season and was unable
to participate in the last two games
of the season.
Mr. Weir is a member of the Junior
class in this institution. He has ql-
ways taken an active part in athletics
and in student activities. During the
regular term he was a member of the
student welfare council and was instru-
mental in putting the nnuch needed
three dollar blanket tax. before the
student body. For the past six months
Mr. Weir has been on the star staff,
acting in the capacity of business man-
ager. He has ably filled the position
as treasurer for the Chautauqua Liter-
ary Society. This young man’s popu-
larity was shown when, the “T” asso-
ciation elected him business manager
of the 1923 basketball team.
Like many of his team-mates, Mr..
Weir is working his Way through
school. As a K. P. he has proven him-
self worthy of all that that name
stands for. Ask anybody about how
he evaporates the water on the trays
at the cafe. In spite of the fact that
Alfred is an athlete, and that he par-
ticipates in .all, studen activitties, he
has never failed to make excellent
grades in his work.
Though modest and reserved, Mr.
Weir is a man of social affairs. This
statement can be verified by the fact
that he is a shining star in the social
realm. Like very few other men, Mr.
Weir knows that he cannot go with
all the girls with any great degree of
success, consequently he has settled
down and built him a happy home.
Next comes Jack Felton Horton. Af-
the Bobcat team in football, but he was
one of the best Kittens that Normal
had for the first to seasons. The rea-
son that Horton failed to make the
first team is probably due to the fact
that he had had very little football ex-
perience. But when it came to basket
ball, Jack opened Old Normal’s eyes.
He has been on the Bobcat team for
three years and during that time he
has been rated by several spectators
as the best man on the team. Indeed,
Jack is a steady and even player. It
is really worth while to see him dash
like a greased streak of lightening
down the floor and loop the old hoop
jlust in the nick of time. He is a good
player, and this was shown when the
Bobcats elected him Captain for the
When it comes to football, Horton
is not found wanting. When the re-
porter asked Coach Strahan to enum-
erate Jack’s strong football character-
istics, Coach was unable to do so. He
said that Horton was equally good at
any part of the game. This was a
compliment that few players receive.
If you saw any of the games of last
season you saw Jack perform on the
gridiron because he was in each game
—heart and soul,—and when he went
into the Denton game he seemed to
possess the strength of a giant. Again
and again he was tackled by three or
four men and each time he would shake
them off like they were small boys.
It seemed on that day that he possess-
ed sluper-human strength, for he was
the only man on the team that *coulld
cross the opponent’s goal line. To
Jack belongs a big share of the credit
for winning the Denton game because
he made both touchdowns and was in
every other play of the game.
When Coach called for track men
Horton responded and was one of the
best men on the team. He was a
dasher of rare ability, entering the
100 yard and 220 yard dashes. He also
entered the relay races.
When our team went to Fort Worth
to compete in the T. I. A. A. Jack was
the second best man in the hundred
yard dash. He only lost the race by
To sum up Mr. Horton as an ath-
lete in every sense of the word: during
his stay here he has made three let-
ters in basketball, one in football, and
one in track.. He is one of the five
men in .this school who can boast of
being a three letter man.
But besides being an athlete Mr.
Horton , participates in various other
activities, for instance, he is, now vice-
president of the Chalutauqua Literary
Society, head K. P. at the cafeteria, and
is indirectly connected with Y. W. and
B. Y. P. U. Of course Jack oply sup-
ports the last two organizations like
many other fellows, probably' due to
the fact that some one else is intense-
ly interested in them. Artyway he at-
tends when there is no way of getting
out of it.
We are glad that you enrolled in
this school,“ Jack, we are glad that you
ate he're now, and Cast but net least,
we are glad that you are coming back
next year. We are proud to have such.

Mr. Marshall Gause stays with Mr.
Weir and Mr. Horton in their cozy,
little apartment under the seats“of the
grand stand. He is loved by his room-
mates because he was instrumental in
bringing forth the much needed elec-
tric fan to their domicile. Originally
Mr. Gause is from San Benito, Texas,
but the two years previous to his en-
trance here in 1921 he spent with the
sixteenth Cavalry down on the border.
Marshall entered school here as a sec-
ond year sub-college student, now he is
a member of the Freshman class. Un-
like his roommates this yohng man is
not an athlete, but he is working out
on basketball this summer, and look

on the Minneapolis, Jack returned to
his home at Longview just in time to
reach Normal for the 1919 fall term.
During his stay in the navy Mr. Hot-
ton stood well in the boxing and wrest-
ling circles—in fact he was one of
the best boxers and wrestlers on the
ship. The ship also put out a cham-
pionship basketball team and Jack was
one of the regular players. On" top of
all his athletics “Hoss Collar” served
for several months as Bowman of the
motor sailor, a position which only
capable and energetic men are allowed
We can easily surmise that Jack
would be in tip-top condition when he

for his splendid athletic record here.

the table at the Ward House. The;
girls (one especially) say that he is an ;
efficient K. P. Stay right in there!
Marshall, you are to be commended j
for your pluck.
Another prominent yoiung man who
is working his way through school is
iMr. Fred Kaderli. He is now staying
at the resort. He also works there in
the afternoons. Probably several
young ladies know him as the gallant
gentleman who threw the life belt to
them, thereby saving their lives.
Mr. Fred Kaderli is from Stanton,
Texas. He first entered Normal in
1914 and scrubbed on the football team
that year. Later he joined the navy
where he also played football. He re-
turned to Normal to take up Freshman
work at the beginning of the last re-
gular session. He made a letter in
football last season and every one who
witnessed those games knows of Fred
Kaderli’s performance on the gridiron.
In ev|ry department of the game Fred
is there to deliver the goods and he
doesn’t fail to deliver them in good
fashion. Coach says that he is all that
could be expected of a good guard. His
teammates will bear out this statement.
He will be with the Bobcats and with
us this coming season.
From Robert Lee, Texas, comes the
tallest man on the Hill in the person
of Bill Cole. Last year Bill was pre-
sident of the Freshman class and it is
said that he had more pep than any-
body in the class. He was also yell
leader for Normal last year, - and tuin-
doubtedly was the liveliest and peppiest
leader that has ever yelled for old S.
W.'T. N. G. Before we go further we
must not -neglect the important fact
that Mr. Cole'was nominated last ses-
sion for the-biggest liar on the Hill.-
He is cleared off that charge’however,
because' he failed to be elected by a
small majority. Bill is also an athlete,
having made a letter in footbal in 1920.
Mr. Cole iS; and has been employed
for som&" time as nightwatchman for
the school. He is-an all around good
fellow and we are glad to have him
All these' fellows are of the kind we
are glad to have. They are men when-
