“Yes, ma’am,” replied Susan, “I over-

“In my room, ma’am.”

to his already adequate knowledge of

Edgar Hennig, the star Bobcat twirl-
er of the past season, is now pitching
superb ball with the Del Rio nine. From
all reports Hennig is living up to his
reputation of being one of the best
pitchers in Texas college baseball. He
was the leading Bobcat pitcher in earn-
ed runs of the last T. I. A. A. season.

that I will not have much to say.”
THINGS I LOVE MOST
IN THE COUNTRY
Well, now, somebody has told the
truth at last! Along comes C. E. Gow-
en, Shelbyville, TenH., who sends us a
list of the sights and sounds he enjoys
most in the country; and when he comes
to mention “the welcome sound of the
dinner horn,” he puts “welcome” in
great big capitals just as is seen in the
copy below! We know that all the farm
folks with good husky appetites (and
that, thank the Lord, includes most of
them) are going to say a heraty amen
to Mr. Gowen’s list of “Things I Love
Most in the Country”:—
“A field starred with daisies.
“A woodland with its cool retreats.
“The music of the streams as they
gurgle from the bosom of the hills.
“The lane with its hedge of honeysuc-
kle and wild grape vines.
“A field of clover when it is locking
the sunshine in its blooms.
“The billowy wheat and the rustling
“The old snag in the pond where the
turtles bathe in the sunshine.
“The piping of the quail and the call
of the whippoorwill when the shades of
night have fallen over a peaceful world.
“The ‘old oaken bucket’ and the cool
draft from it on an August day.
“The trip to the barn when I was a
barefoot boy, and the warm place on
the dog fennel where the cows slept.
“The plowboy’s merry whistle and the
WELCOME sound of the dinner horn.”

tem. It ought to unite the interest of
the people so that something really
worth while will be the outcome.
We must select the leaders in this
movement of making a survey of the
state from the outside educational
world. The people would not co-op-
erate with a home man because they
would take his remarks lightly, think-
ing he was only speaking for his par-
ticular community interests. On the
ether hand, the people would listen to
a noted educator knowing that he has,
no particular interest in any section,
only for the betterment of the state as
We must prepare for this survey and
make the most of it. Dr. Eby stated
that this is a great opportunity for the
advancement of Texas in the education-
al rank. If this survey is not handled
in the proper way, it will be an indefi-
nite period of time before the oppor-
tunity will again present itself.
There should be organizations of
teachers, laymen, etc., the purpose of
which is to be the study of the survey
that they might know what to do when
the time comes. The right sort of in-
formation concerning the survey should
be sent, therefore the selection of the
surveyors must be a careful one.. We

the different churches established and
fostered the edcational movements.
Third, the New England idea of the
church subordinated to the state natur-
ally brought about the situation of the
state fostering educational interests.
Dr. Eby stated that the combination of
all these views uonstitute the stand
taken by the state of Texas. Every
one of these examples of handling the
educational problems can be found in
this state. Texas, in this sense, pre-
sents a very difficult problem to deal
In 1884 for the first time the public
schools meant the schools where any
student paid no tuition. Because of
the combination of the such different
educational ideas as have been mention-
ed, Texas has not until yet a real pub-
lic school system. We have today in
this state a vast group of institutions,
operating under varied policies due to
The purpose of the survey is not to
merely make a list of the ailments of
the present situation, but to set a real
standard in the state of Texas. Here-
tofore the town schools have received
their proper care but the rural schools
have been sorely neglected. Taking
only the city schools into consideration
the state of Texas would rank with the
best, but it is the condition of the
country schools that lower the standard.
It is a fact that the people of the
state know what kind of a car to buy,
but they do not know the best model
of educational systems to use. The

MADGE BELLAMY IN
“LORN A DO ONE”
In marked contrast to the tragic,
woe-begone child of misfortune which
she played so marvelously in “Hail the
Woman,” Madge Bellamy’s role of
“Lorna Doone,” which comes next week
to the Palace Theater, is that of a pa-
trician whose inherent gentleness and
breeding is in every way contrary to
her former characterization. Miss Bel-
lamy has a remarkable grasp of human
emotions. Possessed of youth, beauty,
grace and a remarkably fine education,
she holds in her hand a future of great
