VANNIE PERKINS, B. S.
This beloved Senior and student
teacher of this institution first gazed
upon the light of day at Pearl, Texas.
Now, of course, this place is not to be
found on a map of Texas but it will
go down in the annals of history as
the birthplace of one of the greatest
men that this grand and glorious school
has ever known. (To show just how
much Perkins has advanced along In
the civilized world, we might state here
that Pearl, Texas, is twenty two miles
from a railroad and Perkins never saw
a train until he was about fourteen
years of age.)
Next we see the young man as a
student and leader in the Loriieta High
School. For four years he toiled and
at last triumphed, graduating in 1916.
Immediately the Perkins family showed
its superior knowledge of things good
in this world, for Vannie was ushered
at once into school life at S. W. T.
N. in the fall of the same year. From
that time on we see a gradual change
in Perkins and as he became more and
more accustomed to the ways of the
new world we see him coming forth
as one of the shining lights of the
school. Never, when he once got the
start, did he retire into the background
but was always pushing to the front
iin all the activities connected with
school life. We see Perkins as a fel-
low well liked by all—by no means a
book worm and certainly not a lag-
gard. He is what we may class as a
good sport in all that he undertakes.
In athletics Perkins is indeed a man
of whom this school is proud. In foot-
ball he made two letters ^ and was a
never failing tackle, playing as well
guard and fullback. Baseball, though,
seems to be the major sport of this
athlete, he having made five letters in
the game, and during the time played
every position in the infield. (Shi! he
even pitches once in a great while.)
Once during these five years we have
had to rely on the generalship of Per-
Be With The Crowd.
Eat at the
kinsand he lead the Normal nine to a
Turning to literary work we find that
here also Perkins is a leader and en-
thusiastic worker. He is a loyal
Chautauquan, believes fully in the
adage, “that once a Chautauquan, al-
ways a Chautauquan”. This is shown
by the fact that during all these years
which he has attended this school he
has always loyally supported te Chau-
tauqua. Perk is also dramatically in-
clined, having displayed his talent in
this line a number of times under the
colors of the Rabbit’s Foot Dramatic
Club. During his connecion with the
club he served it as one of its best and
most efficient presidents.
Perkins was one of the instigators
and founders of the Student Self Gov-
ernment Plan in this school and has
served for two years as President of
the Student Welfare Council. While
connected with the Council he advo-
cated everything .that was for the good
of the student body and the school as
well. Probably some of you remember
some of those days when Perkins was
on the Council.
In dealing with the literary efforts
of the school it would not do to forget
that for five years Perkins has been
an active member of the staff of our
school publication, The Star. He serv-
ed us again as assistant editor of the
Among other things which Perkins
is a member of, we must count in The
Spanish Club and the “T” Association.
During this time Perkins has also fig-
ured largely in shaping some of the
ideas of the students of this school in
that he is a student teacher. A few
years ago we found him student assis-
tant in Physics and now we may find
him in connection with the
Education Department, for he is at
present a teacher of school manage-
ment in the Normal school.
Last but not least, sometime in this
stretch of time we considered, we for-
got to mention that Perkins spent one
year in the navy and cruised over con-
siderable territory outside of the state
of Texas. It was during this cruise
that Perkins married, and now we see
him as the proud possessor of a young
heir. We consider it an honor to have
been associated with Perkins during
his school life in the school and we
can think of no better student or man
to be found the world over. As much
as we are glad to see 'you get your
degree, Perk, so much and more do we
hate to see you go.

Arlyn Johnson says that he had just
as soon meet a Comanche Indian
swinging a meat axe as a woman with
an umbrella; that if the woman who
halfway scalped him the other after-
noon with her umbrella had used a
butcher knife, she would have done a
much neater job.
We have heard rumors that several
of the campustry courses have been
changed. Why certain classes were
dropped, and why other students were
sought is not known. Suffice it to say,
that there seems to be no lack of wil-
ling pupils for these courses.
Found:—If the young lady who suc-
ceeded in twisting about two inches of
her umbrella stave off in my ear will
pay for the damages, she may call for
the missing piece.—D. L. Walker.
Resolved: That umbersols should
have handles nine feet long, and tops
not larger than a medium-sized pancake.
That it would then be safe to travel
up on the Normal walks—if the gentle-
men had a separate walk.
That some people don’t know that it
is proper to “keep to the right” in na-
vigating about Normal. Try it next
time you go to class.
Helen Ploeger spent Sunday and
Monday with her sister and brother at
their summer camp in New Braunfels.
A girl was heard to say the other
day, “What’s the use of 'studying your
head off every day? I just wait until
the last day of the term rolls around.
Then’s when I do my studying.” Won-
der if that pretty little girl thinks
that it pays. From the scarcity of va-
cant chairs in the Library, we just
wonder how many of our little girls
and boys really believe in this plan,
but maybe note bodks, term themes and
the coming exams are the only source
of worry. Let us hope they may be
permitted to go back to sleep as soon
as the required work is in.

Y. M. C. A. AND Y. W. C. A. NOTES
The Y. W. C. A. is considering plans
for a membership banquet or picnic,
more probably a picnic, to be held in
the early part of the next term. This
is to be strictly for members. If you
are not a member of the Y. W. now,
there is still time to join and become
one.. The Normal Y. W. is a live or-
ganization and gives splendid banquets
besides doing other equally worth-
while things. Do not risk missing this
one. Join now.
* * * *
Boys:—Join the Y. M., put your
shoulder to the wheel, and do your part
to make the Y. M. C. A. as peppy an
organization as the Y. W. Join now,
and put some life into the activi-
ties of the Y.
