| BASKET BALL DOPE |
There are still two games to he
played with he Academy. The;
believe they are going to win
They thought; that in football
also, but the old Normal spirit
predominated. If the school
demands a victory, gets behind
and pushes from now until the
last whistle blows, no Normalite
will be disappointed in the final
T,he question has been asked
very often ah to when the games
with the Academy are to be
played and so this statement is
made: Feb. 34th and 21st are
the dates if at have been set.
The Academy has consented to
play both games at Coronal pro-
viding the last game is under
their management which has
been agreed to by the Normal-
management. 'Therefore for the
first game the blanket tax re-
ceipt will admit all Normal
students, hut for the last game
students will be required to
pay. Tickets may'be bought be-
fore five a’Ab&k the claw Ad
the 21st, for about one half the
regular price that will he charged
at the door.

Monday the team will get
back from their Rice and Hunts-
ville trip. . Why not a delegation
be at the train to meet them?
In a, great many schools this is a
habit enjoyed. Lets wake up
and show our hoys that we are
interested in them, and put the
right spirit in the school as a
whole. Athletics is one of the
things that give a school a name
among other schools. If we are
to he in the College “rank,”
why not act like other College
Schools—get some pep and we
will all feel better.

The season closes Feb. 26th
with Southwestern at San Mar-
cos. This will be an excellent
game for they have a team almost
as good as Phillips.

BALL! Baseball ?
The students of S. W. T. N.
had the very rare opportunity of
hearing America’s greatest
humorist, Irvin S. Cobb, in a
recent Lyceum numbe~ at the
Academy. There was a very
large number out to hear this

“NERO FIDDLED WHILE
Two years of Physical Educa-
tion in the greatest of all schools
—and no P. E. credit for it in
our Southwest Texas State Nor-
mal College. “Nero fiddled
while Rome burned.”
The boys who were enlisted in
our fighting Army and Navy
drilled from morning till nig lit;
our soldiers lived in shell-holes
and dug-outs on the Western
Front, our sailors rode the salty
waves of the briny deep in the
danger zone. Is this not Physical
Education or P. E.? If it is not,
Sherman lied when he said war
is hell. Far be it from throwing
a reflection on our Student Army
Training Corp, but let us use it
only as an illustration. Now
these boys had the wonderful
opportunity of going to school,
working off their literary courses
and receiving credit for their
P. E. in completing their |ifgk
education^ iris True that fno
boys of the S. A. T. C. deserve
this credit, but do you not think
that the hoys that did nothing
but P. E. for a couple of years
or more, at least deserve credo,
for P. E. in their school work?
It is not that the boys of the
S. A. T. C. are getting something
for nothing in receiving their
P. E. credit, but that the real
hoys that did the job up brown,
that went through fire and shell,
and that wrote the name of their
country in imperishable letters
of immortality, are now regarded
as having sat on downy pillows
and cast slv glances upon the
wonderfully beautiful daughters
of France. I would hardly call
this pure discrimination, hut I
.am mighty afraid that during
our recent war “Nero fiddled
while Rome burned.”

There has been some complaint
on the part of a few students on
not receiving their Star.
It has been noticed that each
week when the Star is delivered
that there is a certain number
of students who take more than
one paper. When you do this
you are taking a paper away
from your schoolmate making
him do without. There is not n
student in the school who has
paid for more than one piaper.
If you want to send one to your
friends, come in and pay for
more copies and they will he
