NORMAL SENDING OFF HEAVY

these games we would have more
nearly the real strength of our team
in hatting. Up to date, the team has
the respectable percentage of 249.
The individual batting of the play-
ers is very interesting and worthy of
consideration. While the team is led
by Morris Jennings with an average
of 556 when all men are considered,
the real leader is Eubanks with 378,
and Homerun Baby has the nice per-
centage of 28 6, while Captain Soyars
and the noisy third baseman, Vanme
Perkins, are making good showings
every day with 2 65 and 250 respec-
tively. Atwell Eummers is making
a good showing for the number of
games played in with 267 for his
fttgH mark. The leading pilferers
prove to be Eubanks and Captain
Soyars with nine each and Bob Shel-
ton close behind with 7.
Below is given the average of the
whole team in order of their ranking

THE CHAUTAUQUA LITERARY
For a live, interesting, peppy society
meeting the last meeting was hard to

The Houehold Arts Department of
S. W. T. N. gave a style show at the
Hays County Fair in San Marcos last
week. All garments exhibited were
made in the Department. The dresses
under the direction of Miss Rath-
bone and the hats under the direc-
tion of Miss Griffin. The runway was
built from one of the cottages at
Rogers Park and was beautifully
decorated in moss and wicker bas-
kets of pink roses. The Normal
band furnished the music while the
models displayed the different types
of garments—wool dresses, organdie
dresses, sport dresses, school dresses,
childrens garments made from adults,
and hats made in the Millinery De-
partment. Mention should be made
of the simplicity and excellent taste
in the display due to the efficiency of
hour, 9 a. m. The meeting was be-
gun by the roll call which was ans-
wered by each member with a quota-
tion from some author, and was
ended by a series of magic tricks exe-
cuted by Mr. Asheim, who only need-
ed the turban and other regalia to
rival Brush, The Great, or Wamba,
A program had been prepared by
our efficient program committee,
which contains some interesting num-
bers for the next meeting. Every
member is expected to be present and
all new members are welcome.
HARRIS-BLAIR BANQUET EN-
JOYED BY MANY
(Continued from page 1)
consequently only a resume of what
was said will be given.
Mr. Roger Robinson made an ex-
cellent toast master, having an appro-
priate joke with which to introduce
each speaker of the evening. In in-
troducing the first speaker, Mr.
Robinson told of the strong course in
campustry that Mr. Stroman was tak-
ing. This course resulted in Mr.
Stroman’s having to point over the
back of his shoulder to one of the
two girls standing near him and tell-
ing one of the boys that he was go-
ing to take “nobody” to the banquet.
In answering Mr. Robinson, Mr.
Stroman quietly reminded him that
he looked wilder and wilder as he
continued to look into a certain
young lady’s eyes. Mr. Stroman then
ga.ve one of the most interesting
toasts of the evening to the Co-Eds.
The inspiration of the occasion was
so wonderful that we have never
seen Mr. Stroman when he was more
eloquent or. when he treated his sub -
ject so well.
Mr. Stroman was followed by Miss
Betty Wilder who gave the following
To stand before a crowd of men
And say just what I think,
Is worse than bearding a lion’s den,
Can’t you hear my weak heart sink?
To the Harris-Blair Literary Society
We give our heartiest applause;
A mirthfully serious,
f irst to the sponsors we’ll say,
Your talks make the Harris Blair gay,
You’re perfectly adorable,
To the Harris-Blair ability to debate.
We have Oscar and Mac so sedate,
A speech so meliferous,
Then having a moment to spare,
We turn our attention to the Chair;
He is stricly neglectable,
But highly respectable,
And wholy adorable,
And last let us with joy
Lift high our glasses and drink to
Of the super-superlative
Following Miss Wilder, Mr. Arnold
n his own very effective way gave us
a toast to the Baifle of San Jacinto.
We all appreciate and love Mr.
Arnold for his sincereness and ex-
cellence in presenting high ideals
both in word and in action, and the
toast given was up to the highest
Mr. McDonald used the historical
setting to give a fitting toast to the
past, present, and future Student
Welfare Council. These timely re-
marks were appreciated by all.
Mr. Woodson then followed with
an excellent five minute speech on
Texas Independence and its meaning
to us. Many interesting facts and
appropriate suggestions were given
that inspired all who were present to
make Texas a better place by living
for it in a whole-hearted whole-soul-
ed way that we could not have done
if we had not heard Mr. Woodson’s
To those present it was a real
treat to hear our very efficient Peda-
gog Editor toast the publications of
the school. In showing how the pub-
lications have improved in every way
possible, Mr. Bachle reminded us
that in the same way that Mr. Stro-
man has now ceased to wear the-high
standing collar and red, flashy tie
and is wearing the more up-to-date
things, so had the Pedagog and the
Star changed to the later and better
Some of us may be indebted to
Charlie Jowell in the years to come
for inspiring greater effort on the
part of our baseball boys. He alone
realized the great possibilities of the
boys making up the present team.
Such a world series has never been
played as he described to us but he
thoroly convinced us that one would
be in the near future.
We have already suggested that
Mr. Birdwe.il did the appropriate
thing for the occasion in giving us a
standard by which to .measure afte1'-
dinner speakers. Even tha Mr.
Radios had his speech already pre-
pared, he met at least three of the re-
quirements, in that he began with a
joke, bad good terminal facilities and
closed with a piece of poetry. And
we feel that he touched a responsive
cord in all of our hearts in remind-
ing us of the pleasures of college
The evening of festivities was very
appropriately closed by a toast r>y
Mr. Willie Doyle who led in the sing-
ling of “Auld Lang Syne.” '
Those present were: Mr. Woodson,
Mr. and Mrs. Arnold, Mr. and Mrs.
