PRESIDENT EVANS SPEAKS
BEFORE WOMEN’S CLUBS
Students Stage Pageant
WOULD CUT WAR CAMPAIGNS
(From San Antonio Express)
Advocating a program of public
instruction which would magnify the
accomplishments and maintenance of
peace and pay less attention to the
tendencies of militarism, Dr. C. E.
Evans of the Southwest Texas Nor-
mal College of San Marcos, appearing
before the joint conference of the
conservation and peace committees ot
the Texas Federation of Women's
Clubs Wednesday afternoon told the
club women present that he was in
favor of reducing to a minimum the
number of pages in the school
histories which were devoted to the
narration of military campaigns in
order that the works of peace could
be more forcibly impressed upon the
mind's of history students.
“I believe that the Civil War could
oe reduced to eight pages, leaving
151 pages of the history textbook
which we are now using in our public
schools to be devoted to the history
of the construcitve development of
America, and an account of what
the women have been doing for the
upbuilding of our country,” the
speaker continued. “I believe that
military campaigns should be taught
in our military college,” he added.
“I think that we should take tne
Peninsular Campaign out of our
American school histories. I am not
a pacifist, but I am strongly opposed
to military instruction in our public
schools. Let us talk more about
Burbank and Ford and Dr. Napp, the
originator of the boys’ corn clubs. •
Surely he made two blades grow
where only one grew before. Let us
talk more about the works of peace
and less of war,” Dr. Evans said.
Stressing war’s staggering losses
and its progressive brutality, the
speaker urged his hearers to cry
down the agitators who were ‘‘con-
stantly agitating against friendlv
This constant agitation could re-
sult in nothing other than to engage
this country into new wars, the
speaker declared. He, however,
characterized as un-Christian and
inhuman any policy which kept the
United States aloof from the affairs
and conditions of the other nations
of the earth. “We should he interest-
ed in Europe and the foreign coun-
tinents. We should teach all about
these countries in our schools as a
part of our peace program,” Dr.
Eyans stated. In conclusion he
warned against the impending
dangers of Bolshevism, stating that
internal peace was impossible in any
country where Bolshevism was
DEPICT PURITAIN CHARACTERS
In contrast to the strenuous busi-
ness session of the morning and
afternoon session, a score of students
from the Southwest Texas Normal
College of San Marcos at 5 o’clock
presented a historical pageant in the
hotel ballroom depicting the lives
and characters of the Puritan women
in America, showing the progress
and elevation of American woman-
hood from the dim beginning by
Anne Hutchison, the mother of the
woman’s club movement in America,
up to the present day. After ihe
last historical character had crossed
the stage, Mrs. Thomas G. Winter,
president of the National Federation
of Women’s Clubs was brought on
the scene as typifying the American
clubwomen of today. The characteis
introduced in the pageant and tne
scudents acting the various roles were
as follows: Spirit of prophecy, Mary

tianity is Essential to Real Great-
ness.” Mr. Wenzel contributed to the
program by stating some of tne mauy
benefits of the. Y. M. C. A. in the
Southwest Texas State Normal Col-
a social committee, composed of
Robinson, Bachle, and Mercer was
appointed to meet with a similiar
committee of the Y. W. C. A. to ar-
range a joint program and entertain-
ment to be given in the near future.

tifying of the Y.. M. C. A, room fn

the benefit of them. ihe organiza-
tion is working towards a definite

thing. The next meeting will be in
Mr. Arnold’s Room, Wednesday, Nov.
24th, at 9:30.
