VENTION AT GEORGETOWN
The Methodist Student Federation is
the objective of the convention of the
Methodist students from the state col-
leges and the University, which will
be held at Southwestern University at
Georgetown on February 3, 4 and 5th.
The Southwest Texas Normal Col-
leeg is to be well represented at the
convention according to an announce-
ment made Tuesday. As there are 300
Methodist students in this school, six
voting delegates may be sent, it was
stated. The six students who have
been elected to represent the Metho-
dists at the meeting are Misess Julia
Terrell, Anna Goodenough, Mrs. Phoe-
be Storms and Messrs. A. T. Rumsay,
Dan Smith and Ora De Weese.
Four students are going as delegates
from the Epworth League, according
to action taken by, that body on last

“Religion and Science” is one of the
interesting problems of the day. We
are fortunate to have in our faculty
an instructor, Mr. Spurgeon Smith, who
says that there is no conflict in his
mind on this subject. To. Mr. Smith
knowledge gained in either field, throws
enlightment upon the other field.
Science to him substantiates the Bible.
Mir. Smith has kindly consented to
give, under the auspices of the Bible
Study committee of the Y. W. C. lA., a
series of discussions on this subject.
These discussions are conducted at the
assembly hour on Saturdays, in room
29 of the Science building.
Last Saturday Mr. Smith, in his in-
troduction to this course, gave a con-
cise explanation of the Bible and of
Science and then formulated his conclu-
sion. The following gives the essence
of Prof. Smith’s talk. To him the
Bible is the very fundamental of life.
Without the Bible civilization would
not be as we know it today. It ap-
peals to our intellectual, aesthetic, and
spiritual emotion and creates for us
our standards of life. The Bible is
the inspired word of God. Then, the
Bible covers a large field, namely, that
of Faith. This faith reaches into the
beyond, into the unknown. Therefore,
it is our faith in the word of God that
makes the Bible fundamental in our
In Science we are still at the begin-
ning of investigations. We are only
standing at the shore picking up shells
left as the tide goes back. The aver-
age person today lives in greater luxu-
ry and enjoys more conveniences than
did the courtiers in the court of Louis
XIV. In the light of what marvel-
ous achievements have been made in
the last few years we look with awe
upon the coming age. The trans-con-
tinental flights, and radio, are examples
of how the scientific world is being
opened. This gives us knowledge; and
through knowledge the fundamentals
of life are made clear.
After having the field of the Bible
and of Science in mind, a conclusion
can be reached. When all of theBible
has been interpreted and all of Science
has been discovered—then we are able
to discuss Science and Religion and
see if they conflict.
Among the Alumni of the Southwest
Texas Normal College is counted Ro-
ger F. Robinson, now a member of the.
38th Legislature of Texas. Roger is
known to many of the present students
of the College, having been here as
late as 1921. 'He was a deserving
student, and his connection with this
school has been one of a very pleasant
and beneficial natiire indeed. Especial-
ly did Robinson take an active and
leading part in college activities.
' Roger was born in Jewett in 1899,
where he received his high school edu-
cation, graduating there in 1914. With
the coming of the World War, he en-
listed in the navy, but returned to S.
W. T. N. C. immediately after the war
and graduated under the old curricu-
lum in 1921. From here he went to
the University of Texas, where he is
now a student in the Law department.

MEXICAN NIGHT SCHOOL
FOSTERED BY NORMAL
Y. M. AND Y. W. C. A.
(Continued from page One)
how the memorizing of dramas or
songs helps you to learn that language
so you may partly estimate the great
value of Miss Butler’s music work in
the night school. Since Christmas
Miss Davis had to stop because of
heavy teaching work at the Normal.
Judge and Mrs. Wilhelm have also
stopped to let the new teachers them-
selves into the work. They will come
back. Misses Beall and Perkins had to
quit on account of more,work at the
Normal. The new corps of teachers
are Miss Hawks of the Normal Library,
Mrs. Mayfield of the Normal College
Education department. Miss Sallie Ross
Jones, a student and Y. W. member,
Miss Ernestine Bradley, a Normal Col-
lege student who substitutes when a
teacher is sick, and Miss Mary Stuart
Butler of the Normal 'College faculty.
For reasons of wprk some of the
Mexican men have stopped since
Christmas. The attendance before
Christmas was 60, now it is 40. With
two live organizations like the Y. M
C. A. and the Y. W. C. A, behind, us,
we can do good work.
In the general election of 1922, Roger
realized his ambition of entering a<>
tively into the political life _ of his
state. He was elected from his home
district, the 56th Legislative District,
as its representative in the 38th Legis-
In connection with his legislative du-
ties Mr. Robinson is still atennding the
University of Texas. There, as here,
he is taking as active a part in the
life of the University as his time per-
mits him. He is a member of the
Acacia Fraternity, member of the
Speaker’s Club and vice-president of
the Hildebrand Law Soriety.
Among some of Roger’s' works and
activities while in S. W. T. N. are his
active part taken in the Harris Blair
Literary Society, serving the society in
the summer of 1920 as- inter-society de-
bator and winning over the Chautau-
qua. He was also a member of the
Student Welfare Council and did much
toward putting that organization upon
its sound standing. During his last
year her he was a student teacher of
Latin, in addition thereto, teaching two
classes in Mathematics in the San Mar-
cos High School. In the Normal Band
he took an active part.
That Roger still thinks of S. W. T.
N.; that he still feels that it is real-
ly his Alma Mater is evidenced by the
fact that he pays us frequent visits.
Although these are usually of a more
or less personal and undivided nature,
a particular house on North Cedar
street claiming the greater part of his
time when he is here, we feel like Ro-
ger is closely tied to S. W. T. N. and
his many friends here.
Monday afternoon the members of
the Spizz society made up a party of
twelve and attended the Palace Thea-
tre. The original intention of the club
is to promote hiking and other outdoor
activities, but an enjoyable picture
show was an adequate substitute since
the weather was rather damp. Every-
