WHAT ABOUT IT STUDENTS?
Within the past month there ha^e
been two visiting teams in San Mar-
cos that stayed here for two days.
None of the organizations of the
school put forth a single effort to en-
tertain either of these teams. It so
happened that the following conver-
sation was overheard by the writer
as he walktd along just in front of
a couple of the boys from one of
these teams: “Well, if there’s any
place where less has -been done for
us, I’d like to see it. There’s a fair-
ly dectnt bunch up here and they
play good ball, but I wonder where
their school spirit is. Seems as if
they have it when they get to yelling
but I haven’t heard anything about
their entertaining us, or really find-
ing anything for us to do.”
Now, as most of us who have in-
vestigated the matter know, the kind
of movies that are run here during
the mid-week are not worth the time
it takes to see them. And what else
is there in San Marcos- that a visitor
might find to do? Of course one or
two might find an old pal or an old
girl, and they would naturally enjoy
that more than anything else. Bs
that as it may, there are usually
twelve or fifteen men here and their
criticism of our spirit hurts the Nor-
mal more than we can tell.
Do you know that both of these
teams on their circuit came to us
alter having been entertained and
went on to other colleges where
dances and parties were given them?
We played up last fall, students, and
each football team that came was en-
tertained in some way by some of
the clubs. Let’s stand up as well
for our school reputation this Spring,
and show these men that our school
spirit is all there.

BOBKITTENS SCRATCH CUBLETS
3 TO 0
Last Monday evening tht Bob Kit-
tens came back with the old come
back fight and gave the Academy
Cublets a good licking on their own
grounds. The game was hard fought
thruout, and all the Kittens showed
good form. With Ivey in the box and
Jowell behind the plate, the Cublets
could do very little hard hitting, Ivey
allowing them only three hits. The
Bob Kittens were pretty good on
slamming out hits, Hog Pickens get-
ting two, Jowell, Dement, Baines,
and Arnold getting one each. Our
first score came in the seventh when
Ivey crossed the plate, the second
coming in the eighth when Kellam
scored for Arnold. On the whole the
game was a very close one, and the
Scrubs showed some good baseball at
various stages of the game. They
have some more games on schedule so
come out and root for them for they
He was teaching her arithmetic
He said it was his mission;
He kissed her once, he kissed her
And said, “New, that’s addition.”
And, as he added smack by smack,
In silent satisfaction;
She sweetly gave his kisses back
And said, “Now that’s substractlon.”
Then he kissed her, and she kissed

Then both together smiled and said:
“Now, that’s multiplication.”
But dad appeared upon the scene
And made a quick decision;
He kicked the lad three blocks away
And said: “That’s long Division.”
“Why didn’t you stop when I sig-
nalled you?” inquired the officer.
“Well,” replied Mr. Chuggins, “it
had taken me two hours to get this
old flivver started, and it seemed a
shame to stop her merely to avoid a
little thing like being arrested.”

in that we transported our bank to

BADLY SPOILT CHILD
The shadow of the arch-enemy
next door appeared in the doorway
cf the humble kitchen.
“Mrs. Jones,” she exclaimed, with
folded arms, “let me tell you that
that child of yours is badly spoilt.”
“Oh, get away with you,” snapped
Mrs. Jones testily, scenting another
complaint as to her young hopeful’s
“Well,” rejoined the aggrieved
neighbor, “if you don’t believe me,
just come out and see for yourself
what the steamroller’s done for him.’’
