HOW ABOUT IT?
THE DENTON GAME
Recently the “Star” ran an article
under the above heading, and dealing
with the new trend of development
evidenced in boxing talk recently
heard in the dressing room. This
new avenue for the fight spirit has
taken more form, and arrangements
are being made to have some pre-
liminaries and final bouts to be
staged for the public in general,
under the supervision of Coach
Strahn, who has given his consent to
give his best attention to this excel-
lent sport after the Denton game is
won. Coach also promises to give
some very strenuous drubbings io
the basket ball boys soon after the
football season is over. Practice will
start in a week after the Denton
game; so some more of the fight
spirit will oe taken care of there.
This still will not take care of the
abundance of grit that is creeping
out everywhere this year; so some*
of our fighters are clamoring for
class football games. Watch the
“OLD FIGHT” show itself in dif-
On the night of November 3, the
San Marcos Normal students at the
State University, having previously
organized themselves into a S. W.
T. N. Club, met in regular session
and elected officers for the Winter
and Spring terms. Arrangements
were also made for the Club to
be represented in the Cactus, the
University annual. John Meyers was
elected president, H. H. Day, vice-
president; Julia Dailey, reporter;
Mr. Tillery, secretary; Miss Waldo,
treasurer and M. M. Hornsby,
sergeant at arms. Jeannette Collins
was appointed to make arrangements
to have the Club represented in the
“The band is coming out in all its
glory.” Such was the expression
made by one of the football fans at
the Armistice game on Academy
Field. The Band has had an uphill
pull up to the present, as it has had
so much new material at the be-
ginning of Ihe term, but it is now
making rapid progress. Instead of
meeting once a week, as has been
the custom, it meets now on Mon-
days and Thursdays. The band did
not function in any of the recent
famous football games except the one
with Academy, but will be well pre-
pared for the coming basket ball and

Mabel Morris, while working out
a chemistry experiment last Tuesday
morning at the first period, sustain-
ed a dislocation of the knee cap as
the result of a fall in getting out of
the way of an explosion caused by a
faulty gas burner blowing out. Miss
Morris was taken to her home in
San Marcos, but the injury, altho
very painful, was not serious, and
she was able to return to schdol in
a few days.
Have you thought anything qbout
the Denton game on Thanksgiving
Day? That will be the biggest and
most important game of the Bobcats’
schedule, and the sad part of it is
that only a ery few of us will get to
see the game. Naturally, the next
best thing is to give the Bobcats a
send-off that can be heard in Denton.
And it will be done; the pep has been
extra fine this year arid it will be m
abundance the night the Bobcats •
leave. We thought we had a pep
rally the night before the Academy
game, and we did; but that rally will
become a mild affair when thought
of after our team leaves for Denton.
Every student and teacher in S. W,
r& N. should be there a 100 percent
strong, and we believe, will be there.
But don’t worry about the other-
fellow, just see to it that YOU are
And when they come back—we
have not thought much of that, but
the inspiration will come as soon as
the wires can bring the result of the
game. A male parade like those
‘pulled off” in other college towns
would not' be out of order. The kind

Normal has a little calf,
It is the best in town;
It followed her right up the hill
And there it did sit down.
Unlike the lamb of fabled Mary,
That followed her about,
All Normal follows that dear calf
As soon as school is out.
What makes them all love calfie so’-'
Was the town’s interrogation.
Why calfie has the eats, you know;
The best that’s in the nation.
But that’s not all I will confide,-
And if you don’t believe,
Just happen down at 12 o’clock—
A surprise you will receive.
“Spoon food” is what they serve
Right down upon the table;
And if you have the nerve there,
You’ll eat as much as you’re able.
Katheryn Sheehan is in San An-
tonio this week attending the State
Convention of Federated Clubs. She
was sent as a delegate by the Idylic
literary Society. Miss Sheehan also
took part in the pageant staged by
Normal Students before the Club Con-
vention last Wednesday at the St.
Frances Rosenthal was out of
school Tuesday on account of sick-
ness, but was able to go to San An-
tonio Wednesday and play her part
in the pageant.
FIRE AT THE CAFETERIA
Fire in the Cafeteria early Wed-
nesday morning did not prevent the
management from serving breakfast
to ail who came. The fire was
caused from the big range that was
placed flatly on the kitchen floor,
and burned several planks in the
floor before being extinguished. . The
damage was only slight and was com-
pletely covered by insurance. More
damage was done by cutting away
boards in the basement to get to the
fire, than was caused by the flame.
Charles D. Mercer is out of school
this week and is cinfined at the
Vogelsang Hospital with an infected
foot. At present he seems to be in
a most critical state as his loot is
threatened with blood poison.
Juanita Wagner spent Armistice
Day and the remainder of the week
visiting home folks at Cuero. She at-
tended the Turkey-Trot and reports
a good time.
Misses Marguerite Green and
Viveon Smith spent last week end in
Lockhart with friends.
Laura Wendt spent the weekend in
Waco and attended the Cotton Pala.ce.
On Nov. 4, Miss Hines escorted the
“Walkers” out to Rogers Resort,
where a big basket of sandwiches,
apples, etc. was waiting. Everyone
enjoyed themselves greatly.
