Spring has came! Winter exams are
over, board is due again, grass is get-
ting greener (and so are some people),
birds are singing more and louder,
(and so are some more people), dres-
ses are more colorful and so are other
things, too numerous to mention here.
Oh, yes, Spring is here! What? The
thermometer reads 40 degrees above
zero? Well What if it does? A little
thing like that never worries u§ here
in Texas, unless it be that it was 3
source of disappointment to some peo-
ple who have new Easter frocks to
sport out on Easter. Still, this does
not keep Spring away. Spring, so says
some reliable authority, like a woman’s
tongue cannot be stopped. March 21
has arrived and gone by. The Weath-
er Bureau said it did—so it did.
■urPld oyot? ask what Spring meant?
Why, Spring is the name of a school
guard and Margie at forward. We de-
feated the Gypsies and ruined their
dream of a W. I. A. A. championship
Such a story could not fail to come
to our attention. We cannot but won-
der whether the Editor of the Campus
Chat is really sincere in saying in the
above that “We defeated the Gypsies
(the second night) and ruined their
dream of a W.I.A.A. championship for
’23” or whether the poor fellow is suf-
fering from so poor a memory as that.
Whatever the case may be, we must
call his attention to the fact that the
Gypsies deefated Denton the first
night 19-15 and that the score of the
second game was 13-13. As regards
Denton’s smashing of the Gypsies
dream for the W.I.A.A. championship,
we have never heard of any such thing,
and as far as we have been able to
determine no one has disputed their
claim to the championship.

attend the State Convention in Waco
at the Raleigh Hotel. Reports of the

Of the seven Texas colleges given
special mention for administrative
work in the report, two are Normal
colleges, and one of these is SW.T.N.
High mention is made of our joint
work with the Y.W.C.A. on the ser-
vice being rendered in the San Marcos
Mexican Night School.
We also were represented by two
men among fifty-five delegates from

ELVA (McDAVID, B. S.
Off all the Seniors probably none
will be more greatly missed than Elva
McDavid. Her entire four years of
college life have been spent here and
during this time she has found innum-
erable friendships and is equally well
known by students and teachers.
Elva came to us from Rusk Acade-
my and almost immediately upon her
arrival entered upon the various stu-
dent activities. Throughout these four
years she has been a member of the
Idyllic Literary Society and the Home
Economics Club, and during most of
this time she has been a member of
the Y.W.C.A. During her Senior year
she has served as president of the
Home Economics Club and as secret-
ary of the Student Welfare Council.
Also, according to her own statement,
she has done the “trolling, collecting,
and janitor work for the entire Senior
Her fun iovlng nature and the ease
with which she forms friendships have
combined to make her a favorite and
no one can doubt this who has ever
observed her progress across the cam-
pus interrupted (as it always is) by
a friendly slap on the back, jerk of
the^ hair, or rock cast at her feet for
which she always has a laughing re-
In addition to these qualities we find
that Elva has also made good in the
class room. Her record is an en-
viable one and one which shows her to
be a hard worker as well as of unus-
ual ability. Also, it shows her to have
a well rounded mind, for not only does
she hold a high rank in Home Econo-
mics (in which she majors), but she
has also shown her ability in various
other lines, especially Science and Eng-
It is with confidence, Elva, that we
see you start out on your journey
through life. Anyone who has made
the success of school life which you
have made is certain to make a suc-
cess of later life.

you ever been to the zoo?”
Big Cow: “Nope.”
Cholly: “Well, after the way I saw
you round second base while ago, I’m
convinced of the fact that you ought
to go. You’d enjoy seeing the turtles
whiz by you.”
We predict that Weir is goin’ to be
some fly chaser this season, judging by
his work in the initial games. He
covers all kinds of ground in the out-
field, making the hard ones look easy.
We wonder why Freshman Houkwas
unsuccessful in his search for dilute

stitution doesn’t keep some on hand.
