YOUR SCHOOL PAPER
We are anxious to make this year’s
Star the best that has ever been pub-
lished, and we ask for the hearty co-
operation of the student body and the
faculty in realizing this aim. In order
to make this idea a realization, those
whom the paper represents -must get
behind it both in spirit and in deed.
The spirit is here, we know, but some
people have the idea that the other per-
son will do the work and I will let
down. This idea has prevailed to some
extent in the past and it will take the
individual decision of the students to
overfcome it this year. As you notice
in the list of reporters, there should
be a great many more who are inter-
ested enough in the merits of the paper
to contribute to its columns. If the
paper is not up to your expectations
it is up to you to help remedy the
fault. You are rendering your school
a great service when you help make
the school paper one of credit to the
College. It is truly one of the best
advertisers of the school, whether it is
good or bad. It is up to you to co-
operate and make it what it is intend-
ed to be.
Whether you have had any exper-
ience as a writer or not, come around to
the Star office and get an assignment
or two. You may say that you just
have not the time. We can arrange a
small assignment to suit your time.
Thus you can be helping that much.
Another thing that we would like to
call your attention to is the fact that
if you care to keep a file of the issues
of the Star, save your own copies. We
have had cases in the past when stu-
dents came around to the office and ex-
pected us to furnish them with the mis-
sing numbers. That is of course, al-

Students, the old grind has started
again and the Star wishes to be the
first to urge you on to do the things
that will please yourselves and those
interested in you. This is the first is-
sue of the Star for this year and we
wdsh to extend to all the warm recep-
tion characteristic of the Southwest
Texas Teachers College.
To the new students we say that you
have come to the best College in the
State. You are now among a bunch
of college men and women who are
glad to have you here and will treat
you as friends. They will be your
friends if you will let them. You can
make this year the best in your life
or you can make it the most miserable
in your career. The old students and
teachers will no doubt run true to
form and make this year a banner year
both in social and scholastic phases
of student life. Regardless of the ef
forts of the old students and faculty
members, it would be next to, impos-
sible to make the year what is should
be without the cooperation of each stu-
dent. Remember, that after all you
are the one to shape your college life.
It will be just what you make it. You
can make friendships that will stay
with you for the rest of your life.
Here is the idea, get into the spirit of
the College, NOW.
It is true that we have a large en-
rollment for the first of the year, but
it is not always the numbers that go
to make a successful year. It is the
college spirit shown by the students
individually. The work spirit, the
athletic spirit, and the spirit of fel-
lowship make up the true college spirit
of today. It is these things that make
the American colleges of today a good
place in which to live.
This Teachers College is no excep-
tion to this rule. We have a regular
College here with a regular student
body and faculty. We are among many,
a college among colleges, and to dis-
tinguish ourselves, we must show the
proper school spirit. As in other col-
leges, it is up to the faculty arid the
student body to cooperate and bring
about the proper spirit that will bring
about the desired condition. The grea-
ter part of the responsibility falls upon
the old students. It is the old stu-
dents, to a fare greater extent, than
anyone else who shapes the spirit and
the punch of the College.
Whether and how we can do this is
the question. The last few years have
been milestones in the progress of the
institution, and from all conditions, this
year should not fail to keep in step
with the progress. The forward steps
in the past few years shows that we
can bring about the right conditions
OF THE REALLY LOYAL supporters.
Another thing which too many stu-
dents do not consider carefully and
thoroughly enough, is the idea of good,
honest to goodness conscientious work.
Think about this thing WORK. Pic-
ture for yourself a school of any sort
that is without the item work. Now,
think some more and what you can do
this year that will better your sur-

NAME OF SCHOOL
PAPER HAS CHANGED
With this issue of the College Star
the aforementioned name had teen
adopted as the official name of the
school paper. In the old days when
this institution was a Normal school
the paper was called the Normal Star.
Now that the names of the CoUeges
for Teachers over the state have been
changed to Teachers College, it is
appropriate that the paper recognize
the name of the institution that fosters
it. We hope that in speaking of the
school paper, you will recognize the
new name and abolish the discarded
one, Normal Star.
The name of the hill top on which
the Teachers College is located was
originated with the foundation of the
Normal School in 1903. From that
time until the legislature changed the
name of the Normal colleges, that par-
ticular location in San Marcos hadjj
been called “Normal Hill”. This was I
entirely appropriate and no objection
was made, but now that the school is
a Teachers College, the name of Nor-
mal Hill should go into discard as
the others have done. Instead of Nor-
mal hill speak of the “College Heights.”
It will sound much better and also be
in keeping with the official name of
the school. It is up to the students
and faculty members to revolutionize
the names. They are the ones most
interested in the life of the Teachers
College. Correct the person you hear
speaking of Normal Star and Normal
