THE PRAYER OF A SPORTSMAN
The following poem by Berton Bra-
ley is one that every college athlete
would do wel to commit to memory.
The poem sounds the very essence of
real sportsmanship. It is often hard
to be a good winner, but to be a good
loser requires more than ordinary
courage. But this poem was not aim-
ed directly at athletes, but to everyone
that enters the surging games of life.
Sportsmanship is needed there as much
or more than anywhere else, but the
individual that learns in college to
be a regular sportsman is just that
much ahead of the other fellow when
he starts out in his life work.
Read Berton Braley’s poem and if
there is ally sportsmanship in you at
all it will come to the top.
Dear Lord in the battle that goes on
I ask but for a field that is fair.
A chance that is equal with all in
A courage to strive and to dare.
And if I should win, let it be by
With my good faith and my honor held
And if I should lose, let me stand by
And cheer as the winners go by!
a small, still voice chided, “You would
never have thought of that unaided.
It is not yours.” She left the test
Some assert that that is an extreme
case. But the father of all cheats al-
ways has on hand a fund of fine, con-
vincing excuses. If you take his
guidance this time, it will be easier to
see an extreme case in the next one
also. Cheats in school are embezzlers
and “shady” business dealers in after
life. Now is the time, and the only
time, to give character—not a sand,
but a stone foundation, laid deep in
the principles of Jesus. The easy way
will always send you a special invi-
The price you pay is a million, mil-
lion times too much for what you get
in return. A mark, a grade, a pass,
is nothing in comparison with strength
of character and honesty.
The world will not ask what you
made in school, but it will demand
that you prove how you made it.—Ex.

GRADES VS CHARACTER
What shal lit profit a student if he
makes “A’s” but loses his self res-
pect? Which adds greater to his va-
lue, a high mark, or a high ideal?
The members of the Young Womens’
Christian Association recently discuss-
ed the subject of cheating or copying
in class. An incident was told of a
University of Tulsa student who met
a test question with a blank memory.
By mere accident she saw a word on
another’s paper. It instantly recalled
to her mind the needed answer. Then

looked very aristocratic; and one very
be-curtained car that bore the mystic
symbol, M. S. B.
The entire party arrived at Allan
High in ample time, and enjoyed
mingling with the immense crowd of
music lovers, who had come to hear an
evening’s program rendered by the
greatest band in the United States,
The program was one of notable di-
versity, prepared to satisfy a great
variety of tastes. The Overtrure, “In
Spring Time” was romantic in nature,
and written by Goldmark, a modern
German composer, whose verve (not
nerve) and sprightliness are the equal
of th£ present French school.
The cornet solo, “Carnival of Ven-
ice” was a marvel of technique and
purity of tone. The soloist, Mr. John
Dolan, is considered the greatest liv-
ing cornetist. He was most enthus-
iastically encored, and responded with
“Lass O’ Mine”. In Mr. Dolan’s ren-
dition, it was a love song that needed
The third number, a suite composed
by Mr. Sousa, showed a marked de-
parture from the style of the famous
marches of the world’s march king.
Indeed, the desire of the immense au-
dience was graciously met in band*
encores, such as “Stars and Stripes
Forever” and other favorites, j
The band of seventy members, in
their natty uniforms set off by shin-
ing instruments, formed a magnificent
background for the vocal soloist, Miss
Mary Baker, and the violin soloist,
Miss Florence Hardeman. Both these
artists rendered brilliant concert solos,
Miss Baker giving as her encore,
“Carry Me Back to Ole Virginy”, while
Miss Hardeman caught the fancy of
the crowd with “Souvenir” by Drdla,
and a second encore, the old favorite,
Perhaps the outstanding feature of
the program was “Rondo Capriccioso”
by Mendelssohn, as played by Mr.
Geo. Carey. It was brilliant in the
extreme and displayed hitherto un-
dreamed of capacities of the Xylo-
phone as a solo instrument.
No one need be told that the last
number, the Cowboy Breakdown, “Tur-
key in the Straw” (a transcription, by
the way, written by Mr. Guion of our
own S. M. U.) put everyone in a thor-
ouhgly happy mood. The vast audience
applauded lustily and begged for just
one more encore, but a generous and
wonderful program had reached its

which games of every description were
played. “Cyclone” Tate, one of the
college’s best known Carusos, rend-
ered the audience a very monderful
vocal selection, in “When Father Put
the Paper on the Wall”. In “Miss
Popularity” the players made very at-
tractive pieces of furniture. Most in-
teresting of the games played was the
“Suit Case Relay” which served _ to
make boys understand why girls
can’t dress quickly.
After the games, taffy-apples were
served, and at 10:30 the partyreluct-

MEN’S FACULTY CLUB MEETS
At the regular meeting of the Men’s
Faculty Club Wednesday evening, Pre-
sident Thomas W. Butcher of the Kan-
sas State Normal, Emporia, Kansas,
was the guest of honor. The program
of the evening was a round table dis-
cussion of the trend of the teaching of
the manual arts in the colleges of the
land. President Butcher leading the
discussion in a speech of some length,
in which he stated that his investiga-
tions of the subject seemed to point to
the conclusion that manual instruc-
tion as a school subject was going out
of vogue, due largely to the fact that
the greater part of the boys for .whom
this instruction was intended did not
continue in school past the _ fifth or
sixth grade. Discussion of this condi-
tion brought on that the possible re-
medy lay in some sort of extra school
work to be carried out as a communi-
ty project under the joint control of
the school authorities and the muni-
NEWMAN CLUB MET SUNDAY
i The Southwest‘Texas • Normal NeVv
man Club met Sunday, January 15,
for the purpose of electing officers for
tbe winter term. The house was call-
ed to order by the president, Miss
Clara Koch, who was such a faithful
president the past term. She was re-
elected. Miss Beatrice Hansen was
elected vice-president; Leon A. Frels
was re-elected secretary, and the du-
ties of the treasurer were also as-
signed to him. Hereafter the secret-
ary-treasurer office will be voted upon
as one. Miss Laura Pier was elected
press correspondent. The program
committee will consist of the vice-pre-
sident and her assistant, Miss Emmy
After the election of officers dis-
cussion of pictures for the Pedagog

Sunday, January 29.
GYM FUND GROWS SLOWLY
The gymnasium fund has after a
weeks drive, only reached the amount
of one hundred thirty dollars. This
amount is not nearly what it ought to
be for a student body which numbers
seven hundred. An analysis of the
rolls shdws that the percentage of the
men who have paid is twice as great
as the percentage of the women that
have paid. The faculty is donating
heartily. Students: What’s the mat-
ter? Do you realize what this fund
is, and means? Do you realize that
this gym is your gym? Do you know
that there is a debt on the gym which
your President and Dean Woodson
have paid? Don’t you think that this
debt ought to be paid now?
We don’t doubt that everyone was
sincere in voting for the fifty cent tax
in general assembly last week. Pos-
sibly it is only forgetfulness on their
part. Be sure that your name appears
on the list of those that have paid.
The Student Welfare Council is anx-
ious to get this debt paid. Don’t
