The latest fad is taking typhoid fe-

four “shots” this week. Don’t tell—
they really are not afraid of fever, but
if they take all the shots in the right
arm, they might get out of writing a
term theme or two.

they insist on coming in tens and doz-

THOS. B. BARNETTE
Those of us who have been wonder-
ing about the strangeness of the na-
ture of Thos. will no doubt have these
illusions dispelled when we learn that
he is a native born Louisianan. But
he knew what he was doing when he
moved with his folks to Arkansas. Not
being satisfied with the flavor of Ar-
kansas life, he came to Texas, to the
Southwest Texa,s Normal in 1913. Life
in Texas and being a student of S. W.
T. N. must have had a peculiar charm
for him, so he spent the sessions of
1913-14, 1914-15, 1915-16, and 1916-17,
in the Normal, graduating under the
old four-year course in T7. He then
re-entered as a fifth year student, or
college Junior in 1917-18. But when
the World War broke out, Thos. like
under Uiicle Sam’s colors, serving in
the U. S. Navy for two years.
Upon his discharge from the Navy,
he entered again in S. W. T. N. C. in
January 1919 and completed his fifth
year work. But the call of Arkansas
was too strong for him, so he returned
to said state and taught in Warren,
Ark. the session of 1919-20. He came
back to Texas to do some more school
work, being in the University of Texas
in the summer of 1920.
For the past two years Mr. Barnette
has been teaching in the high school
at Commerce, Texas, and will be there
again the coming year. Along with
his teaching he has completed the pres-
cribed^ courses for a degree and will
receive same here at the Normal Col-
lege the close of this term.
At present Mr. Barnette is teaching
in the Summer Normal at S. W. T. N.
Thomas has always been a leader
among the loyal students and wide
awake students in the Normal, having
taken part in athletics, literary society
work, Liberty Chorus, Glee Club, and
all other forms of student activities.
One year he was business manager of

Another seriior of whom we are all
proud is Miss Gertrude Berry. Ger-
trude first started her career as a Nor-
tnalite in the seventh grade of Train-
ing School not many years ago. From
that time until now she has been con-
nected with the Normal and all its
student activities, except one year when
she taught at Uhland, Texas.
Miss Berry has always been an ar-
dent worker for the Y. W. in the Nor-
mal, having served as a cabinet mem-
ber and as an active member. The
Y. W. has on many occasions enjoyed
her vocai solos.
Gertrude has served as an efficient
staff member of the Pedagog many
times, has been Pedagog editor for the
Seniors of ’22, arid at the same time
editor of the Home Economics Club.
Miss Berry is indeed an excellent stu-
dent in the, IT. E. department, for she
has had -practically all the H. E- offer-
ed and is highly praised by all her
instructors. She further .displayed her
skill in the art of Home Economics
when she lived in the Demonstration
Cottage the spring term of ’22.
The Idyllic Literary Society, realiz-
ing her ability, has elected Gertrude
to very nearly all the offices possible in
that Literary society. On all social
occasions held under the auspices of
said literary society Miss Berry has had
her_ share of fun and by her jolly dis-
position helped scores of others to en-
joy a little social recreation.
Yes, at one time she was a member
of the Pierian Literary Society.
But where most of us enjoyed Ger-
trude’s ability and performances has
been in the Liberty Chorus. For sev-
eral years she has been one of the
S. W. T. N. from a four year Normal
to a college however, has made it pos-
sible. Annie came here as a Senior in
1916 under the old course, and by the
time she graduated, the school had
added another year to its work. She
came back and did the fifth year, and
again when the sixth year was added,
she came back. This summer she takes
Miss Goodman has been an ardent
worker in the Y. W. C. A., having
served as a cabinet member for sev-
eral years. In the summer of 1916
she was made president of the organ-
ization. In addition to the work that
she has done in the Y. W. she has been
a member of the Liberty Chorus.
Miss Goodman majors in Chemistry.
She is lost in the wonders of the la-
boratory where each day she discovers
something more that adds interest to
Miss Goodman goes to Donna, Texas
next year, where she has taught suc-
cessfully for the last five years. She
teaches science and coaches girls ath-
letics. The record she has made there
speaks for itself.
We shall count Annie, not as one
that has been here having now gone
from us, but as one who is ever with
her Alma (Mater. We know she feels
like she is going to be a part of the
Old School as m'udi as she has ever
been. She has already sent us a dozen
or more students, which alone goes
to show what Old Normal means to her.
Our Alumni is growing stronger and
stronger with the addition of grad-
uates, like these.
Y. M. AND Y. W. NOTES
All those who missed the athletic
night at the big Gym last Saturday
night missed the time of their young
lives. Judging from the size of the
crowd, not many did miss it. Near-
ly all of the live people were there.
The boys played a good game of
snappy basket ball. The “Reds” against
the “Whites.” Rooters were about
evenly divided and enthusiasm ran
high. The “Reds” won after a hard
After the' games, while Grace made
music, Miss Harne led the bunch in
the grand march and came right man-
fully up to the “eats.” Two great free-
zers of cream had been opened and
every one was served and served again.

bers of the Liberty Chorus, having
taken the leading part in many Chorus
recitals and having sung for not only
the school, but at the churches and for
other community and private functions.
Her place in the Liberty Chorus will
certainly be hard to fill.
Gertrude’s ever ready smile and jol-
lyness will be missed by all those who
know her, and we wish her the best
of success in her work after she leaves
the Normal, for we understand that
she intends to continue her studies in

Vespers Thursday night proved to be
a great success. It was turned into
a social in honor of the departing dele-
gated rpembers who are to go to ihe
Y. W. encampment at Estes Park,
Colorado. These delegates are Miss
Irene Hearne, secretary of the local
Y. W., Miss Evie Lowman, president
of the local Y. W., and Miss Sallie
Ross Jones, under-graduate represen-
tative. Everyone was sparkling with
wit and humor and of course they all
had a good time. You always do get
something worth while from Vesper
ANNIE B. GOODMAN
In Annie Goodman we are losing a
good, staunch, and every inch Normal-
ite.„ She is one of those that has helped ^ VCSP^
to make the school grow to what it is ! Se™lces’ However, an undercurrent of
•sadness was running through the hearts
of those present because it was Miss
Hearne’s last Thursday night with us
now. Her work and play has always
been in such combination as not to
interfere with each other, and at any
time when play did threaten to en^-
croach upon that record of A’s that she
has in the registrar’s office, she simply
put the playful things, from her and
set herself to the task.
Annie has the peculiar record of .al-
ways, while she has been in this insti-
tution, being 'd Senior! This is a
marvelous occurance, for never before,
do we believe; has it happened that
one has held that rank for the length
of time she has held it. The rise of
this summer. Everyone felt how keen-
will do.” If no teacher is in sight you
happy to know that she will be back this
fall with her cheerful smile and spon-
taneous help. ,

Miss Winifred Thalman delighted her
many friends by a short visit to the
Hill the past week-end. She reported
that she had been running a ranch and
chasing (???) we have forgotten what,
but anyhow she did quite catch it. Her
profession for the coming year is go-
ing to be teaching the little fellows in
the Masonic Home Ft. Worth.

San Marcos last Sunday. Cicero is
