The members of the summer nor-
mal faculty who have been having a
round-table discussion during the
summer months have decided to have
a social feed next Friday evening at
Rogers Park. It is expected that
members of the College faculty will
also attend this meeting. It*is plan-
ned to make the occasion one of a
get-to-gether nature. The members
of the two faculties do not see much
of one another and such meetings
are very desirable and should be held
earlier in the school year.
At the chapel period Tuesday Su-
perintendent Kidd addressed the stu-
dents under the auspices of the
“Back to the Normal” committee.
.The speaker stated that there were
three great days in every person’s
life: first, the day you find yourself;
second, the day you matriculate in a
first class college; and, third, the
day you take Christ as the leader in
your life. The meeting was presided
over by Mr. Harry and the College
Band furnished the music.
For prompt service phone 87.

“Y” GIRLS GO TO
JOLLY PARTY OF Y. W. C. A.
HAVE PICNIC ON WREN’S
A party of the “Y” girls of the
Normal went to Wren’s Ranch last
Saturday afternoon for their annual
summer picnic. The merry makers,
in cars and trucks, left from the
Education Building at 3:30 to enjoy
the scenery of the mountains and
the invigorating swimming of the
Blanco. It was a gala occasion—-
every one having sensed the real
spirit of the day contributed her wit
and brilliance to make the outing a
The party was first conveyed to
Wimberley Hill to get a view of the
surrounding country. From there
they went to the river at Wren’s
Ranch in order that the Mermaids
(mere maids) might have a swim.
An excellent place for camping was
found where the many good eats
were quickly dispatched.
If there is anyone who thinks that
the Y.W.C.A.is composed of “long-
faces” he would have changed his
mind after seeing how much fun the
“Y’s” had in roasting bacon and
wieners. The official chaperones
for the occasion were Mrs. Davidson,
Misses Murphy, Allison and Harris.
READS FOR U.
Professor Richard C. Harrison of
the Southwest Texas Normal faculty,
who is teaching in the University of ,
Texas this term, was the reader Mon-
day evening of this week before the
students and faculty of the Universi-
ty in the open air auditorium on the
campus. Mr. Harrison read various
dialect selections from the modern
poets. His artistic work was mucli •
appreciated and liberally applauded.
