Y. W. C. A. NOTES
“DAY BY DAY, IN EVERY WAY"
What is there in this “Day by day,
in every way" that we hear so much of?
The psychologists explain Emile
Coue's famous theory as the constand
repetition of a formula which becomes
a habit of the subconscious mind. And
naturally the question resolves itself
into issues of auto-suggestion, sensa-
tion, perception, inner consciousness,
and mental states.
The incerdulous observe the pseudo-
psycho analyst and the. pseudo-psycho-
logist ponders over Coue’s new theory of
the sub-conscious mind with furrowed
brows—and retreat suspiciously. The
earnest disciple hangs around hoping
for enlightenment, but the sub-consciouss
mind is bewildering to the uninitiated.
But some earnest advocate of the
Frenchman’s doctrine, who had not
been touched by psychological shackles,
made bold to assert that Coue’s for-
mula was a common sense one, i. e.,
that all worthwhile achievements are
progressive rather than instantaneous.
Then the credulous are almost willing
to try the experiment of “Day by day,
in every way, I grow better and bet-
ter", without fear of involving that
mysterious force, the sub-conscious
mind. When the formula becomes a
New Year’s resolution—made any day
after the first—it loses all of its mys-
terious charm, and suffers the same
fate as our proverbial New Year’s re-
But after all it puts one over on the
IDLENESS AND SUCCESS
“Don’t wast your time!” This is a
familiar warning handed from" every
hand through every age. It occurs to
me that it is a difficult problem for
’* some people to differentiate between
hours wasted and time profitably spent.
Maybe a person is seen obviously idle
so many times that in thinking of that
person it becomes habitual to register
that particular individual as an idler.
Is it possible for someone to deter-
mine another's thoughts and reactions
merely at sight? Thousands live ob-
scure and seemingly fruitless lives that
are marked, in gold letters as it were,
by a daily triumph over ill-fortune,
selfishness, or cowardice. Is it not un-
just and cruel to say of any life that
it has been a failure, without knowing,
as we do, what nobility seeming-fail-
ure may conceal ?
True greatness is unquestionably an
affair of the soul and requires no large
stage, no gorgeous setting, to prove
its quality. How is success^ to be de-
termined; and once determined, how
estimated? Certainly the “Almighty
Dollar” is not a safe unit whereby to
measure success. No effort is wasted
that is prompted by an honest purpose
and aim, or by sense of duty. We are
factors, infinitely small ones, in a great
scheme of things; and no matter how
little the thought pleases us, we can-
not, it we would, live for ourselve

Due to final exams, there will be no
meeting of the Y. W. next Wednes-
day. The meeting will take place as
usual the following week.

All girls are invited to the rest room
any time during final exams, to a St.
Patrick’s tea that the Social committee
is giving for all girls who are taking
finals. Some of the faculty members
will help serve. Come and enjoy your
self between exams,
Last week amid the cheers of the re
mainder of the school the men of the
Faculty received a crushing blow at
the hands of the undefeated basket-
ball team of the Seniors. From re-
marks heard on the campus, however,
it seems that deep in the heart of the
faculty there still smoulders a tiny
flame of confidence not entirely quench-
ed by the recent experience.
Therefore, in order to insure the com
plete subjugation of. the faculty for the
good of the entire student body we,
the Senior girls, hereby challenge the
women of the Faculty to meet us on
the basketball court at any time they
may deem best, and there strive to re-
claim the title they have lost while we,
in turn, defend the title and honor of
the victorious Seniors. A reply to this
challenge is requested in the next is-
sue of the Star.
LENA HAWKINS, B.A.
To be sure you know to which senior
this applies. With the above equip-
ment, plus a firm determination. Miss
Hawkins appeared upon this^ hill for
the first time in 1915. Coming from
Temple, she naturally found many
strange scenes in her new surround-
ings. However, in due course of time,
she adjusted herself to this environ-
ment and found her place among the
students: She took active part in the
Shakespeare Society and was a devout
member of the United Order of Fiery
Tops. Having gained her desire, she
left this institution with the determina-
tion to conquer the world—armed with
her permanent certificate.
Since then Miss Hawkins has been
steadily treading the road of success
in the teaching profession. Desiring
more knowledge however, she again en-
tered the halls of S. W. T. N. C. for
two summer sessions. Thus when she
decided to finish her college work it
was only natural for Miss Hawkins to
return to her Alma Mater. As a Sen-
ior class we are glad that Miss Haw-
kins decided to be with us this year.
Your presence has added to the spirit
of our group, Miss Hawkins; and we
are glad to have worked and played
with you. We are hoping for you the
most interesting and successful trip
through your fields of historical re-
search. IMay you always keep your
winning disposition and cheerful smile.
That is the way we remember you best,

is not to come back. He seems to just
naturally belong here rather than any-
where else. ,
During the hour which Mr. Birdwell
spent in his old office last Wednesday,
we heard many an old student say,
“Looks mighty natural to see Dean
Birdwell back, doesn’t it?” and to those
who hadn’t seen him: “Do you know
Mr. Birdwell is here. . . You bet, I’ve
seen him; he’s in Dr. Nolle’s office. . .
Yes, he’ll be mighty glad to see you.”
Mighty glad to have had you with
us again, Mr. Birdwell. Hope you
come again soon.

The work of the guards, we almost
said was not hard for the reason that
the ball was usually fed directly to
our forwards^ and was seldom in the
Pirates’ scoring zone, but we cannot
say that they had an easy time, for
whenever the ball did come into the
possession of the Pirates’ forwards
there was trouble. The fact that they
were able to ring only one field goal
alone speaks for the work of Ila Low-
man and Mabel Bates at guard.
During the last half Mamie Blaze,
Jimmie King and Martha Woodson
went in for Thelma Ellis, Ila Lowman
and Mabel Bates. They played an ex-

a wicked pole, and oftentimes parks
the ball for a homer. He bats and
pitches from the port side and judging
from the way he is knocking the ball
over the fence, the pitchers who he
faces this season had better beware and
walk him. He is a Sophomore and has
two more seasons with us. .
A BAD MISTAKE
“This woman is the most awful ac-
tress I ever saw”, said the mild-man-
nered man to his neighbor.
“That lady is my wife” replied the
“I am wrong”, said the mild-man-
nered man. “She is a good actress,
struggling with a rotten play. I won-
der what fool wrote it?”
“Unfortunately, I am the author,”
said the neighbor simply.
Maud: ‘Where can I be vaccinated
so that it will not show?”
Gladys: “On the ear.”

The Place Where Most People Trade
What shall the school undertake in
the field of journalism? If successful
experience is a reliable guide, the an-
swer is simple. Journalism in the
school is an extra-curricular activity
that may be employed to encourage
written expression on the part of the
entire body, to develop qualities of
leadership, and to contribute to the
social organization, welfare, and ad-
ministration of the school. In large
schools annual, monthly and daily pub-
lications may be maintained, with the
activities of each restricted to the
proper fields. The medium-sized schools
should usually substitute a “weekly”
for the “daily”, while in most of the
smaller schools the newspaper should
be omitted and the emphasis placed
on the publication of the “annual” or
the “monthly”.—Educational Review.

my dear boy, of retiring next year,

His Prodigal: “There’s^- no hurry, is
there,, father dear? You go ahead
and work a few years yet,. and then
we can retire together.”
