Of the six games played by the
Bobcats this season, they have come
out with the overwhelming score of
228 points to their opponents’ 16.
Their g'oal line has been crossed only
twice and one field goal has been
scored against them. That is quite
a record for any team to shoot at,
and looks especially good when hung
up by the side of Denton’s 166 points
scored to their opponents’ 3 6 and
Denton’s goal line crossed six times
to the Bobcats’ twice.
“Now is that vague enough,” as a
certain teacher in the Normal says.
IT not, there is still another more
round about way of attacking the
question, i. e. by way of the Academy-
Baylor Cub; Academy-Normal and
Denton-Baylor Cub games. At any
rate, you are a good one if you can
decide from the above figures the
out come of the Bobcat-Denton game
On the other hand, we have some-
thing better than contract scores to
go by; we have seen the Bobcats per-
form under varied conditions and
know what they are capable of doing,
and we place the utmost confidence
in Coach Strahn and his men and
just feel that they are able to turn
the trick, no matter how difficult
the task. We feel about the Bob-
cats just as the defeated party’s
candidate for vice-president felt
about America during the war, when
he said, “Somehow I have a feeling
that if the whole world jumped on
America she just couldn’t be
downed,” and that is the way every
loyal Normalite feels about the Bob-
It is too bad that we all can not
go to Denton and see the great deed
performed, but we all can go to the
depot and give them the biggest
‘ sendoff” that was ever given a foot-
ball team. And when they come
home—well “they’ll be surprised!”
NORMAL STUDENTS ELECTED TO
OFFICE IN BIBLE CLASS
The Fidelis Bible Class of the Sail
Marcos Baptist Church elected the
following officers on Sunday, Novem-
ber 7, 1920: President, Mary Mc-
Kinney; First Vice-President, Mar-
garet Adams, Second Vice-President,
Nell Walton; Third Vice-President,
Myrtle Barnet; Secretary, Myrtle
Haley; Assistant Secretary, Lucy Sue
Abney; and Treasurer, Nan Sevayze.
We have a peppy, wide awake class
now and we want to extend a cordial
invitation to all Normal girls to join
us. Mr. Birdwell is our teacher, and
Mrs. J. H. Lewis and Mrs. C. E.
Evans are our patronesses. You’ll be
sorry if you don’t get into this class
with us. So far we have seventy-six
on our roll, but we want more. Our
class meets at 9:45 every Sunday
FISH SAY THEY CAN DOWN
It is usually the custom at the
close of the football season for the
classes to have football games to de-
cide the champion class. Some years
this honor has gone to the Sopho-
mores, some years to the Juniors,
but more often to the Freshman
class. The Freshmen feel confident
that they can still have tnis honor.
They count on the excellent football
players they have on the first team
making good as coaches, as well as
they have players, and being able to
put the punch into their team in
sufficient quantify and quality to
carry all class games to a victorious
conclusion. But the other classes
have an abundance oL material and
are in for the contest. They feel like
their letter men (who are eliminated
from participation in class games)
can deliver the goods as coaches al-
so, and are eager for the contest.
Probably the Junior and Senior
classes would have to combine to
get a team as there are not more
than 15 or 2C boys in the two classes
not eligible to a letter this year. All
other classes, however, have a large
number to pick from and the quality
is unusually good. It is rumored
that the Fish will challenge the
Faculty if they win the inter-class
contest this year. Watch the Fish
Everybody be in the gym Dec. 6th.

NORMALITES TAKE PART IN
It was quite appropriate for the
teachers and students of the Normal
to take an active part in the Armis-
tice celebration. In the list of
‘Deathless Dead” of Hays County,
read by Mr. Birdwell Thursday night,
November 11, were the names of
Normal’s heroes of the great war.
We find Jack Arnold. Kenneth S.
Gardner, David Haile, William Harris,
Joe Stribbling, and Henry Whipple
have their names written among
those who made the supreme sacri-
fice. We who have profited by their
sacrafice should enshrine in the
sacred hall of memory these names
and honor them throuout the ages.
It seems to the writer that we can
best honor them by doing all in our
power to promote and disseminate
the high ideals of democracy for
which they gave their lives. The
Liberty Chorus, the Band, Mr. Bird-
well, Mr. Vernon, and Mrs. Shaver
did their part on the above men-
tioned date in taking part in the
program arranged by the American
Legion of San Marcos.
