“Miss Henderson,” inquired one of
her pupils, at the beginning of the
Fall Term, “Are we going to have
any student teachers this term?”
“Surely,” answered Miss Henderson,
“they will be in pretty soon.”
She had hardly quit speaking when
the door opened and in walked a
pleasant looking blond whom Miss
Henderson introduced us to “Mr.
Decimal” of whom we all grew very
We were so delighted with Miss
Scott that we had nearly forgotten
that there would probably be others.
In a few days came a charming little
lady whom we learned was Miss Vera
Cammack. She was so pleasant that
she made our Language ever so much
easier than it had ever been before.
“Children, this is Mr. Kuehn and
he will teacn you Geography,” said
Miss Henderson one morning in
January. Honestly, a man teacher
for Geography. Well, it certainly did
seem queer, hut we soon got used to
him and certainly hated to part with
“our man teacher.”
Miss Birdwell came in at the fourth
period. She was very strict and
dignified, and used the ruller a good
many times, (on the desk however
in tapping time to our music.)
After noon we found Mr. Kellam
to observe the Fifth Grade Geogra-
phy. The Fifth all thought that they
would have an easy time for they
wondered if he knew anything but
football, but they soon found out
Miss Hunton was a Fifth Grade
teacher and always took them off
into another room for their iesson
and the Sixth Grade never knew what
she was doing to them but have
found out since then how rapidly
they have improved in their fractions.
We thought Miss Philips awfully
strict but she turned out to be a per-
fect darling. The Fifth Grade en-
joyed their reading still more after
Miss Hopson was introduced next
and we were so interested in her at-
tractive features and pretty clothes
that we didn't know much about the
first lesson. Soon Texas History be-
came as interesting as the teacher.
We all hated to see them leave and
several made wishes that they would
fail so they would have to teach us
again next term.
“Miss Henderson, will we have you
all to ourselves this term?” asked a
“No,” answered Miss Henderson,
Several days after that a sweet-
looking lady came in to observe the
Fifth Grade Language. (The Sixth
Grade secretly envies the Fifth)
Whom they will learn is Miss
A dignified gentleman next came
in to observe the Sixth Grade History
—who is Mr, Lawley. The Sixth
Gi-ade has now learned that Mr.
Kuehn was not to be the only “man”
teacher. As he is one of the de-
baters of the Normal, the Sixth Grade
may all turn out to be debaters.
VICTORY NUMBER THREE
Tuesday afternoon the Training
School nine won its third victory
when we defeated Kyle High School
with a score of 15 to 11.
We were glad that Jessie Kellam
was kind enough to go along with us
as Clyde Tate, our regular coach was
not able to go. The Training School
had no rooters to begin the game
with and things looked pretty blue
for the first three or four innings.
Kyle had ten to our seven in the
last of the eighth and it seemed as
though we would get beat in spite of
the fact that two car loads of our
girls and boys had arrived to cheer
us on to victory.
In the first of the ninth we began
hitting and ran in eight scores, mak-
ing it stand fifteen to ten in ohr
WHY DO OBSERVERS COME TO
Thelma: If they are sitting by
you they look how you write and
every eime you open your desk they
look to see what is in our desks.
Eddie Clay: So they will not be
too hard on their real pupils.
Emma: To see if the teacher can
Louise: I used to think our
teacher asked them to come to make
Evelyn: I used to think; they came
to stare at us.
Edna Erie: To see if our dresses
Ella: They come to look at our
dirty hands and to watch every bad
thing we do and to tell everyone
Bill: To see how smart we are.
Clarence: To watch us and tell
Mr. Garrett how we act.
Ethel: I used to think they came
to write down our names when we
Joe: To see if our hair is combed.
Maxine: I used to-think they were
writing down how many teeth each
of us had.
William: To see if we chew gum.
Albert A: To see if we suck our
Lynn: To make you feel funny
and ashamed when you answer a
question and miss it.
Albert B: To see if our hands are
clean; I keep mine in my pockets
when observers are in the room.

observation classes may sit together.
favor. Kyle got last bat, but we suc-
ceeded in holding them down to one
hit and one score. Tnus the game
ended,, the score standing fifteen to
eleven in our favor.
The line-up for our team was:
catchers, Samuel Haynes, Lynn
Sorrell; pitchers, James Lancaster,
Roy Croucn; first base, Oyrns Carroll;
second base, Alden ..<;0j,y; third
base, Lloyd Branum, Lynn Sorrell;
short stop, Ward Gary; right field,
Frank Arnold, Walter Coers • left
field, Lon Travis; center field, Jack
The game had some feature plays
worth mentioning. The piching done
by James Lancaster proved his worth
as a pitcher, for he uses his head
as well as his arm.
Jack Hays distinguished himself
by getting a three bagger and letting
in three scores.
