Summer Normal Facul-

As previously stated, the summer

gust 2 6. The summer Normal will
open June 13 and last until the sec-
ond week in August, closing with the
state examinations, August 8-11.
The faculty for the coming sum-
mer session will be one of the strong-
est the Normal College has ever had.
in addition to the regular teaching
staff there will be a number of prom-
inent educators from various parts of
tne State. Teachers in the Summer
Scnool are as follows: E. E. Nunally,

sistant in public speaking at the

instructor of public speaking at the

tendent of City Schools, Eagle Lake;
P.A. Bennett,, B\A. superintendent

The Summer School will likely have
a record breaking attendance owing
to the new certificate law which pro-
vides that any student who attends
the Southwest Texas State Normal
College during the session of 1920-
1921 may exercise choice as to
whether he will complete work under
the terms of the New Law, or con-
tinue under the provisions of the old
law, provided that he completes his
work by September, 1925.
OPEN AIR MEEING
Y.W.C.A. HOLDS INTERESTING
The Y.W.C.A. met as usual Wed-
nesday afternoon at the eighth period.
Miss Louise Winfield led the devo-
tional service, taking as her Scripture
reading the one hundred and twenty
fust Psalm. The topic for discus-
sion was “A visit to the City of the
Golden Gate.” Miss Flora Engel-
king gave a very interesting and in-
sl ructive talk upon ‘‘Seeing the Orien-
tal Work with Mr. Action.” Miss
Amanda Payne spoke in a delight-
fully refreshing manner upon ‘‘Visit-
ing the Wesley House with Mrs.
Glide.” Following the devotional ser-
vice a short business meeting was
held, Miss McGee presiding. Since a
secretary ha,s been promised to begin
work in June, the Y.W.C.A. is work-
ing hard to increase her membership.
Come out and see how well you will
like the Y.W. If you come once
you will come again. Just remember
that all students in the Normal school
should be members of a Christian
The live meeting was closed with
a song and a prayer. Will you be
there next time We are expecting a
full attendance at the next session.
Saturday was the day for the tegu-
lar meeting of the Shakespeare Club
but the lure of the' out-of-doors was
slrong, so they turned the meeting
into a picnic, at Riverside Park.
An important business meeting was
held at which time Misses Sheehan
and Berry, visitors from the Idyllic
Society, brought up the question of
reviving the one time popular ‘‘Hill
and River Meet.” This event, in
past years took the form of a “stunt
meeting,” a pennant; being awarded
the society winning the most con-
test. At the last one of these meets
the Shaekspeare society won the pen-
nant and it is now in their possession.
May 14. The club has been making
tours all over the State and of course
we are expecting to entertain them
royally. Miss Cleo Dawson is man-
ager and announces a popular pro-
gram such as is always presented by
this, group, and assures us that the
cadets will be highly pleased.
Theodore H. Price, lecturer, pub-
licist, editor of “Commerce and Fi-
nance” and New York fiancier will
deliver the graduating address to the
Senior class May 24.
The Shakespeares received this
idea with the enthusiasm so charac-
teiistic of them; and if the Pierians
are in favor of it, as are the other
two societies, the meet is a foregone
We are indebted to the Idyllics for
the idea and we hope the cooperation
of the girls societies in this event will
strengthen the tie of comradeship
that now exists between them.
The members of the club were anx-
ious to don their bathing suits for a
swim, so the meeting closed with
twenty-five lusty rahs for Bobcats,
as fate would have it, just as the
Academy boys passed by.
Fresh from the swim and raven-
ously hungry the “followers of Shakes-
peare” enjoyed the delicious picnic
supper; after which they adjourned,
eager for at least one more open air
meeting this term.
SCRUBS TO PLAY SEGUIN NEXT
FRIDAY IN SEGUIN
The Bobkittens are scheduled for
another mixup with the Lutieran boys
of Seguin next Friday, the game to
be returned for their visit here.
Those who saw them play before
know that if the breaks had not gone
against us that the game would have
been ours. Seguin has a pretty good
team but taking all things to be
equal they cannot beat us. The boys
are determined on revenge and the
pity of it all is that all of us cannot
see them slaughter the Seguinites,
Lets of luck, Bobkittens.
One of our Alumni letter men, Mr.
Fred Erney, has made quite a name
in football, having led last fall the
team from Cleburne High that tied
Houston for the State Championship.
V.’ho says that Ex-Normal students
don’t do things. Put ’er there, Fred.
Mr. Saunders, well known as
“Plecky” around the Hill, and one
whose face and talk is not only
familiar but a pleasant recolleltion
to many an astute follower of maroon
and gold, has walked away with the
state class B tract meet held recently
in Austin. He has put Rosenbery on
the map in Athletics. Of course we
knew ‘Plecky’ could do it if anybody
could and our only regret is that he
is not now in school with all his pep.
