AFTER YOU GET WHAT YOU
WANT, DO YOU WANT IT?
First National Bank of San Marcos
They had been working on a “new I11C. , Vvuum yuu
thing” and were now ready to go home, to eat with me?”
A big car waited for Manager Mc-
Conners and his little Star actress,
“Babe” Williams at the entrance of the
“Revue” when they came out.
“Babe, who sent you those flowers?”
asked McConners while they were driv-
ing lazily along. He looked disapprov-
ingly at the heautiful Killarney roses
that had been brought to her by a boy
while they were rehearsing that af-
“I don’t know yet, but—wait till I
read his card. Here it is—.”
After a little bit—“Well, are you go-
ing to have supper with me, and a lit-
tle ride afterwards?”
She read on and then looked thought-
ful. It wouldn’t pay to turn down her
manager in too cold a fashion, but she
was just romantic enough to want to
meet this Richard Wheeler, who did-
n’t want her to be “offended” at his
“I’m sorry, old dear, but I really
McConners looked his disappointment
and showed his jealousy.
“I suppose its that guy that sent you
these flowers. I’ve told you about
these ‘he stage flappers’, but—” the
rest was only mumbled and he was
cross and sullen the rest of the way.
Babe tripped up to her rooms and
reopened the box, held the flowers up
and admired the effeot in the large
mirror. Her sixty inches of femininity
were good enough to bite. Beneath her
delicately curled eye-lashes flashed a
pair of dark eyes that laughed now as
she shook her bunch of curly brown
hair. She re-read the note.
“Dear Miss Williams, I hope you
are not offended at my forwardness in
Sending you these roses and in writing
this note. I am not a ‘social cootie”
’craving excitement, but am only a poor
book-keeping chap, who cannot rest
once he has seen your eyes. If I knew
of a more conventional way in which
to meet you, I would have used it. I
hope you will take pity on me and
meet me tonight. Hopefully, Richard
The Place Where
Most People Trade
M. J. FUNK
You might think Babe was in the
habit of making engagements of this
kind, but she was not. This however,
was a novelty—she liked it. So she
scribbled a reply: “11:00 p. m.—back
stage. I may be there. Babe Williams.”
At five minutes past eleven she
peeped out from behind her dressing
room door. She saw a tall man with
wide manly shoulders. He had noth-
ing extravagant about him, and made
the appearance of a man of good taste
in manners and clothes. He seemed
however, just a bit worried.
“Mr. Wheeler? I’m Babe Williams.
Thank you so much for your roses.”
“I—I’m afraid you think I am ner-
vy, but I’m glad you decided to meet
me. Would you care to have a little
“Mr. Wheelr, this is something I
don’t do, but for just this once I be-
lieve I will”, and she flashed him one
of those smiles that cost McConners
eight hundred a week.
As they sat down at one of the
tables at the Maverick, she said mis-
chievously: “You know, you don’t look
like a book-keeper.”
“Well, I’m not exactly—I am an ac-
countant,^—kind of a lord of book-keep-
ers. But at that, I suppose your in-
come is several times mine. That is-
n’t my worst luck however.”
She affected to be slightly bored.
“Well go ahead with your hard-luck
story—One of your oil wells gone dry?”
“No, not that; and I suppose I
shouldn’t tell you, but I will anyway.”
He loked at her and semed to find en-
couragement in her eyes. “I’m engaged
tc one of the best girls in the world,
but I’ve decided that I don’t love her.”
“After you get what you want, you
don’t want it—is that it?”
They chatted of other things, of the
show, of his firm and so forth.
When they parted, he asked rather
awkwardly: “I’m an awful boob, Babe
—Miiss Williams, but I’d like to call
“I don’t know, but I’ll think about it.
You might call me in a day or two.”
Babe was taking a “bite” with Mc-
Conners, who was forty, fat and bald,
but worth a milion, at the Maverick.
He was jolly and radiant.
“Babe, why can’t you marry me and
forget all this career stuff? You can
have any old thing that my money can
“McConners, I simply don’t like you
enough to marry you. You are too
good a friends to spoil for a husband.”
McConners grew red and hit the
table with his first. “Friend—bosh!
You are like the rest of them. You
squeeze all you can. That’s all tho.'
Darn you, you’ll marry me or look
for another job!”
Richard was seated only a few tables
away. He overheard. He started, but
alreadyBabe had seen him and was
coming toward him.
“Please take me home, Mr. Wheeler.”
On the way home. Richard noticed a
car following them. He said nothing
about it though. They were quiet ail
the way home—only she rested her
band on his arm at her door and said:
“How can I ever repay you?”
As Richard came down the steps,
McConner’s car had stopped alongside
of his. He was standing on the walk.
Richard’s fist flew out—“I’ll teach you
to talk to a lady in that way.”
McConners, though fat, was not j
whipped so soon. He put his hundred!
and ninety pounds into a swing that j
staggered Richard. They sparred
craftily, then at a good opening Whee-
ler’s first—“spat”—and McConners fell
Babe' had heard the struggle. She
was out on the porch. “You. are not
hurt, are you Richard?”

Babe sobbed in his arms. “I hate him.
But what will I do? I am fired.”
“Marry me, after you find whether
you want me or, not.”
She snuggled up closer to him.
“I know what I want when I want
it”, was her answer. —H. A. P.

There’s ego in the inost of us
It’s there in you and me.
- This ego man sometimes will hide
Sometimes he shows it free.
There’s ego in the preacher man
Altho he doesn’t show it
But Preacehr has his artful way
To let the people know it.
The teacher has the ego too,
Be all men quite aware,
(To guess and sometimes wonder)
The reason why they care.
There’s ega in the flapper
You bet she likes to show it. •
Her makeup suits her -artful eye
She wants the world to know it.
There’s ego in the most of us
In every thing we say
The world will hark to ego talk
- So make your ego pay. —D.L.W.

The Y. M. and Y. W. have decided
to have joint vesper services during
the summer at the hour of 7-8 p. m. ^
The first thirty minutes are to be ta- ; l
ken up with the vesper service, and
the last thirty are to be used for so-
cial and recreational purposes. This
week, however, the entire hour was
taken up in the social way. Next
Thursday, -the Advisory board will give
a program which will doubtless be
very interesting. Plans are also under •
way for the next all-No.rmal party. The 1 ?
Service Committee is planning to do *
recreation work at Kyle for demonstra-
tion purposes. This will be done at
Kyle in cooperation with M-iss Bush
every other Saturday.
The Y. M. rest room has been open-
ed in first floor of the Library build-
ing, and doubtless the boys will appre-
ciate it greatly. Magazines and so on
are to be placed there for the con-
venience of the boys.
Phone 87 and ask about the sight-
seeing trips to Sari Antonio, Austin,
and Wimberly. Mondays cheap rates.
