THE MODERN RAVEN
Once upon a week nite, dearie, as I
nodded, almost leary
Of the poor, mistaken text-books
written by some silly bore.
While I yawned, there came reminder,
and my acid tho’ts grew kinder
As my roommate ' hid behind her—
something awful, heretofore—
“Oh, the cigarettes,” I murmured,
“which we copped down at the
Nothing less and nothing more.
Oh, yes, hon, I do remember, it was
sometime in November.
And we had to be real sporty, like the
vamps who lived next door.
So we tho’t we’d first try smoking,
when the matron wasn’t poking
And we wouldn’t get a soaking, soak-
* . ing, yes, and maybe more.
So we lighted up some Camels—they’re
the ones that girls adore.
And while puffing watched the door.
Last Saturday evening Miss Ruby
Henderson entertained her Practice
Teaching Class with a Christmas par-
ty at her home. Several games were
played, after which the stockings were
hung up and everybody went out while
It has been said that those present
at Miss Henderson’s party Saturday
night are the most intellectual group
that have ever gathered on Normal
Hill. The reason for such a statement
was that “Silent Night” was sung by
differtn groups in five different lang-
uages, Latin, German, French, Spanish
Miss Johnson will entertain her Art
classes tonight with a Christmas party,
Santa Claus, as usual, will be on hand,
but it is understood that the feature
of the occasion is to be the costumes
of the guests.
HEAVY ATHLETIC SCHEDULE
FOR WINTER AND SPRING
(Continued from page One)
IDYLLICS ELECT SPONSORS
After while the air grew denser and
our smoke clouds grew immenser,
As we tried it blowing smoke-rings
and inhaling more and more; _
Soon my tongue and head were ting-
ling, and my heart, too, fell a-
“This is great,” I gloated, singling
one. more ‘tack’, which made me
four. , ,
“Ain’t it fun, more than I dreamed
of”, cooed my roommate from the
Silence—that and nothin’ more.
But there came a gradual changing,
all our fond hopes disarranging.
All my being seemd to lighten in a
way ne’er felt before.
My poor head seemed near uncrown-
ing, and my tongue, tho’ burnt,
This was difficult in downing, and I
swallowed all the more.
Yes, that sickly, fainty feeling down
within my tummy’s core,
Made me reel—and—nothing more.
The Idyllic Society after some de-
liberation have at last elected their
sponsors to fill the place made vacant
by the absence of Miss Leloise Davis.
Miss Murphy of the History Depart-
ment and Miss Lay of the H. E. De-
partment have been elected as the
sponsors. Realizing the importance
oi the sponsor’s relation to the Club,
the Idyllics have been in no hurry to
elect new ones.
Miss Murphy has been a member of
the faculty for several years and has
endeared herself to every student on
the Hill by her good sportsmanship
and lively interest in student affairs.
Miss Lay, altho a new faculty mem-
ber, has already made a host of friends
among the students here. There is
not an H. E. girl on the hill but what
would vouch for Miss Lay as a valu-
able asset to any girls’ club.
These two sponsors were elected at
the regular meeting two weeks ago,
but because of other Idyllic matter
that had to go to press both this ac-
count and the interesting /report of
the Idyllic Confederation delegate had
to be left out. The Idyllics held an-
other regular meeting last Saturday
but the entire session was spent in
attending to business of private nature
Hence nothing can be reported except
that the Secretary “read” her minutes
in the usual way, exemplifying her
wonderful memory faculty and her
unique art at extemporary speech.
Now I’m sitting, merely sitting, _ and
the girls are ’round me flitting,
Wondring what can be this feeling—
some smoke Camels by the score.
Oh, my head has all the feeling of a
poor soak in his reeling;
From my stomach comes a feeling—
makes me deathly sick and sore.
My poor back and eyes and all of me
is weak, and—well, I swore
That I’ve smoked—but—never more!

A Recipe For Making A’s.
Take one cupful of love for the sub
ject; a good quantity of fresh air and
sleep, one pound of cramming; one
quart of mid-night oil; one ounce each
of inspiration, perspiration and des-
peartion; mix thoroughly and add an
other pound of ambition, and borrow
enough of the milk of human kindness
from the faculty to soften. Serve hot
on a report card. —Maude Watts.
CHAUTAUQUA LITERARY SO-
CIETY MET LAST WEDNESDAY
The meeting last Wednesday even-
ing for the purpose of electing offi-
cers for the Winter term, proved a
test in many cases, of the new consti-
tution. We feel very grateful that
we have for a constitution one that of-
fers practically no loop-holes thru
which anything out of order may
tentative. If this meet can be arrang-
ed for it will be held at a date prior to .
May 5, the date of the T. I. A. A. meet,
and in all probability will be held on
the Baylor track at Waco. Baylor
has offered her track for that meet in
case it is arranged.
It was at first thought that one ot
these meets could be held on the‘Nor-
mal track, but this year our track will
not be in condition for a meet and
cannot be used. This will hamper the
efforts of the track men to some extent,
but there is a wealth of material for
the track team, and the Cats are ex-
pected to figure largely in the two or
three meets in which they take part.
The baseball schedule calls fbr fif-
teen games, two of which are tentative.
These are with Daniel Baker, and if
played will be played on Evans field.
As in basket ball, most of the games
are with T. I. A. A. teams. Thirteen
of the fifteen games, assuming that
the two games with Daniel Baker are
arranged, will be T. I. A. A. contests;
Huntsville being the only team taken
on during the season, outside the T. I.
A. A. A series of games will prob-
ably be played with the Academy, but
nothing definite has yet been arranged.
The schedule for the baseball sea-
son is as follows:
March '28, Howard Payne, at San
April 4, Southwestern at Georgetown.
April 7, Daniel Baker (tentative) at
April 8, Daniel Baker (tentative) at
Apr. 19, Southwestern at San Marcos.
April 24, Denton, at Denton.
April 25, Denton at Denton.
April 26, Austin College at Sherman.
April 27, Austin College at Sherman.
April 28, Commerce at Commerce.
April 29, Commerce, at Commerce.
May 5, Austin College at San Marcos
May 6, Austin College at San Marcos
May 12, Huntsville at San Marcos*.
May 13, Huntsville at San Marcos.

A letter from Atwell Summers to
one of his friends here in school
found its way to the Star office this
week. Atwell is out at Alpine, Texas,
and says he is taking up part of his
time coaching the Alpine High School
basket ball team.
Everybody that has been in Normal
for the past several years knows
“Apple”. He was a letter man on the
baseball team last Spring, and has
also lettered in football.
“Apple” says he surely enjoys keep-
ing up with Normal doings thru the
Star, and only wishes he could have
been here to see the Bobcats put it
over Denton on Thanksgiving.
“The Sul Ross Normal out here is
plum dead”, he said, “It has only 96
students, and one class in S. W. T. N.
lias more pep than the whole school.”
What Do You Know About This?
We understand that one of the pho-
tographers had a very difficult time in
striking the beauty (?) of one Mr.
Cale C. Stephenson one day this week.
It seems that there was something the
matter with the mirror near the posing
chair, and it was all the said photo-
grapher could do to keep said Fish
from inspecting said mirror long en-
ough to get him to look at the camera
so his picture could be made.
Reports from the committee on the
drafting of the new by-laws are very
favorable and we feel that it will not
be long before we will have “air-tight ’
rules to govern the actions of all.
Altho there was quite a bit of dis-
cussion and electioneering in the sel-
ection of new officers, the proceedings
were very business like and orderly,
“considering.” Following is a list of
the officers selected for the Winter
term: H. E. Raison, president; Henry
Pochman, vice-president; A. Josephus
(Buddy) Ivey, secretary; Ben Brite,
•treasurer; A. J. Briesemeister, ser-
geant-at-arms; W. I. Hill Jr., chap-
lain; Emmett Shelton, Parliamentar-
ian; C. L. Atmar, and H. L. Dement,
auditors; William Keeton, Star re-
A committee of five members from
the Chautauqua was appointed to meet
with a committee of the same number
from the Harris-Blairs for the pur-
pose of organizing and electing offi-
cers for an Oratorical Association.
These men are: “Buddy” Ivey, Henry
Pochman, Ben Brite, C. L. Atmar, and
A. J. Briesemeister.
The members of the Chautauqua
Literary Society are looking forward
to a great deal of fun in addition to
a great deal of literary accomplish-
ment in the Winter term. We expect
our brother Society to have to wear
goggles to keep our dust out of their

The Harris Blairs met Wednesday
night with several members absent at
basket ball practice. The regular pro-

ity of discussing several questions of
