Tonight’s basket ball program will
be exactly the same as that of last
Saturday night; the Cubs from over on
the other hill, and the Bobcats will
mix up again on the gym floor. Last
Saturday night the Cubs and Bobcats
met for the first time this season and
played a fast and snappy game hr
which the Cats won by a good margin.
The Cubs played a splendid game, how-
ever, and Coach Strahan’s gang cannot
beat them by playing indifferent ball to-
night. They, are well aware of this,
it is certain, so tonight should give
the lovers of the indoor sport another
The game tonight should be a great
aid to the Cats in getting in trim for
the two big games at the end of the
week, Thursday and Friday nights,
with the Trinity Tigers.
The game tonight is called promptly
at eight o’clock.

Tn5 addition to those present that
were interested in typewriting, were
many others who came just for the
show. Mr. Harry of the Education
Department was present and questioned
Miss Owen along the line of habit for-
mation. “Do you enjoy writing on the
machine?” Mr. Harry asked. “Oh,
yes,” Miss Owen replied. “This work
holds a fascination for me that I can-
not get away from. I have thought
several times that I would retire, but
I seem to be like an old fire horse that
has bene relegated to a delivery wa-
gon, when I hear the bell I just have
to go. But writing is entirely mech-
anical,” she said, “When I am in doubt
as to how to spell a word I can just
finger it on the key-board to see which
way is right.”
At the international contests held in
New York every year there have al-
ways been English and French typists
to compete for the titles but have never
won. “They think they are fast over
there,” Miss Owen said, “buit they’re

Miss Hearne was absent from Y. W.
meeting Wednesday afternoon, she be-
ing with the basket ball team on their
North Texas trip. We realize how
much she is to us when she is away.
Every girl should be at vespers next

what we have.
Compare your song of life with this
Glad that I live am I;
That the sky is blue;
Glad from the country lanes
And the fall of dew.
After the sun the rain,
After the rain the sun;,
This is the way of life,
Till the work be done.
All that we need to do,
Be it low or high,
Is to see that we grow
Nearer the sky.
ANNALS OF THE GARTH HOUSE
Mrs. Guido Garth opened her home
to the girls of this institution in Sep-
tember 1903. Until Mrs. Garth’s
death she had kept approximately five
hundred girls; Since that time Misses
Jennie and May Garth have been keep-
ing girls in the same house. The house
is located on 712 North Austin street.
Mable Bates is one of the girls now
staying at the Garth house. Miss
Bates graduated from Main Avenue
High- School in San Antonio and is
now a member of the Freshman class
in Normal. She is the timid girl of
L. J. Dailey

Agnew & Co.
th$ house, and doesn’t kiss but oscu-
lates. This young lady is very prom-
inent with her roommates because she
is the athlete of this house. Miss
Bates is also a member of the Idyllics
and the Y. W. C- A.
Another graduate of Main Avenue
High School is Miss Mary Haile Aus-
tin. The old maid role of the Idyllic
Revue was played by Miss Austin and
the girls say she played it to per-
fection. She is a member of the lib-
rary force and a reporter for the Nor-
mal Star. This girl is a good sport,
but for some reason spooks do not
appeal to her sense of humor.
Main Avenue High sends Normal
another one of her graduates in the
person of Miss Bess Burnett. “She
is not there yet but will get there
soon.” Miss Bulrnett is a Sophomore
and belongs to the Idyllic Literary
Among those who have their habitat
at the Garth house is a lady by the
name of Ruby Lee Shipp. Miss Shipp
is teaching in the East End School
and doing Sophomore work in Normal
This Shipp sailed from Texas Univer-
sity and brought with it the ability to
furnish this house all the local news.
The Y. W. C. A. and the Idyllics re
ceived a good member when they took
Miss Shipp into their organizations.
Baylor College is to be congratu-
lated by Normal for sending the lat-
ter a Latin shark by the name of Ivy
Jewel Bryan. Miss Bryan comes from
Temple, Texas, and entered this school
. as a Sophomore. Like many of her
| roommates she belongs to the Idyllics
! and the Y. W. C. A.
The only girl in the house who loves
to watch tennis games from tree tops
is Mary Hill. Miss Hill is a graduate
of the Tyler High School and of the
Home Economics Department of Tex-
as Presbyterian College. She is a
Sophomore, a member of the Idyllics..
and a Y. W. C. A. worker.
From the Baptist Academy comes
Miss Francis Elizabeth Donalson. Miss
Donalson belongs to the Freshman del-
egation and is a member of the Y. W.
C. A. Any further information about
this lady can be obtained by inquiring
at the Cafeteria.
Miss Ruby Meiners is from Moulton,
Texas. She is a Sophomore in S. W.
T. N. C. and belongs to the Y. W. and
German Club. Her roommates accuse
her of setting the old maid age limit
to fifty six, not including Normal
Meridian College sends Normal one
of her graduates by the name of Miss
Lucy Wilson. She specializes in
French and amuses the other girls by
smiling at them in Chinese. Her spe-
cial hobby—(censored). Miss Wilson
is a member of the Junior class here.
Three other College Freshmen are:
Miss Erna Dinter, the dynamo of the
house, Miss Zelma Hobrecht, the most
loved baby of the house, and Miss
Beautrice Moyle, This last lady spends
her spare time entertaining gentlemen
callers. These girls are Y. W. G. A-
members and the last two belong to
the German Club.
[ Miss lone McKee attended Baylor
I College last year and entered Normal
this year as a Sophomore. The latest
debutante of the house is Miss Powell
Erskine. She comes from Seguin and

always took an active part in student
activities. He was a member of the
Normal debating team for three conse-
cutive years and for the last two years
was the Normal yell leader. Sam
Wood Gardner, vice-president, will al-
so be r-emembered by many students
now in Normal. Sam lives in San
Marcos and for two years attended
Normal. In 1919 he made his letter
in football, playing one of the guard
positions. Henry A. Handrick, repor-
ter, was once a Normal debater and
later returned here as a feacher in
the Training School. Ralph Gardner,
like his younger brother, was a prom-
inent personage in Normal affairs
while he was a student here. Ralph
was also the first president of the
Misses Shaver, Alsup and > Morris,
whose names appear in the above lines,
were at all times prominent co-eds
while attending school here. We are
not sure whether one of them, is still
specially remembered or not.
The names of T. E- Barnhouse and
Julian Asheim are seen on the program
committee. Mr. Barnhouse was a stu-
dent in Normal in 1918-19, during the
Winter and Spring terms of that year
he was editor of The Star. Since
leaving Normal Tilford has ceased to
“play the lonely game,” but the fact
that he has deserted the path of bless-
ed singleness does not seem to have
halted him in his pursuit of a higher

A little bit of folly,
A lot of pretty rhyme;
A joke or two, a poke or two,
And work from time to time.

The S. W. T. N. Club held its first
meeting of the Winter term on Janu-
ary 12, the meeting being devoted
primarily to business matters. The fol-
lowing officers were elected and in-
stalled : Richards Hays, president;
Sam Wood Gardner, vice-president;
Miss Shaver, secretary; Miss Bernice
Alsup, treasurer; Henry A. Handric,
Texan and Star Reporter; and Ralph
Prexy Hays assumed the duties of
his bffice in a very business-like man-
r. Realizing that students cannot
live by work alone, he appointed a so-
cial committee consisting of Miss
Mabel Morris, Sam Wood Gardner,
and Miss Shaver to look after the so-
cial side of the Club’s activities.
In like manner a program committee
was appointed to plan worth while en-
tertainment for the members of the
organization. T. E. Barnhouse, Ralph
Gardner, Julian Asheim and Bernice

A membership drive headed by the
Gardner Brothers as contestants was
launched and is now in progress. The
losing team will entertain the Club
shortly after the results of the cam-
paign are known and a full account of
this occasion will be furnished The
Star. As a result of the membership
campaign every ex-Normalite is ex-
pected to be enlisted as a member of
the S. W. T. N. club before many days
Many of the names mentioned, above
are familiar to students who were
here in Normal last year and in pre-
vious years. Richard Hays, president
of the Club, was for three years a stu-
dent in Normal, during which time he
