Miss Margaret Slater, director of
the piano department at C. I. A., in a
recent interview published in the Lass-
0, said: “I have never seen an Amer-
ican girl lose her temper. The most
admirable and most characteristic
trait of the American girl is that she
makes herself attractive for her own
We don’t know just how long Miss
Slater has been in America but judging
from such observations she must have
lived somewhat of a hermit life since
she arrived here from Scotland.—
We wonder if the editor of the Lar-
iat has always held this opinion of wo-
men, or if it is merely an opinion ac-
quired by some recent affair with a
Daily Texan.
Working toward recognition on the
co-eds dancing team, large and increas-
ing groups of girls are daily striving-
overtime to add to their natural grace
and many of them, after hours of prac-
tice, will take part in the recital of
classic dancing which will be given at
the close of the winter term. _
The girls who make the dancing team
and squad will gain one hundred and
thirty five points of the necessary four
hundred necessary to win a “T”.

C. I. A.—The Lass-O.
Arangements have been made by C

Texas Womans College and Baylor
College on May 5. The question has
been tentatively stated as follows:

Should Prohibit Immigration for a
Period of Two Years”.

S. M. U. boasts of being the only
school in the United States with its
own golf course.
Seven hundred students of the Uni-

which was said to be a family affair.
The object of the frolic was to get ev-

The Denton Normal is going to ac-

such a poor judge of human nature?”
She: “Because you have such a good

The Chautauqua Literary Society
met Wednesday^ night for its regular
session. Promptness being one of our
characteristics we began work at sev-
en o’clock.
The minutes of the last meeting
were read by the secretary, Mr. Alfred
Ivey, and approved. The feature of
the last meeting was the receiving of
four excellent young men to mem-

completed their initiation work for
membership. They were in the order
received, Messrs. Davis, Hamilton,
Arley Robinson, and Foster. These
men made a very good impression on
us and we are glad to have them
with us.
Several meetings ago, we elected
Mr. Alfred Ivey to represent us in the
Inter-Normal Debates. Mr. Ivey is a
very able debater and we are sure he
would have done well, but on account
of his numerous duties at this insti-
tution he presented his resignation
and it was accepted. We elected Mr
Emmett Shelton to fill his place. We
count much on Mr. Shelton and are
sure we will not be disappointed. After
this was settled, we elected Mr. Wier
and Mr. Atmar alternate debaters.

The year had gloomily begun
For poor senior, a poor man’s Sun.
He was beset with bills and duns
And he had very little Mon.
“This cash”, said he “won’t pay my

A bright thot struck him and he said,
“A rich man’s daughter I will Wed.”
Bpt when he paid his coulrt to her,
She lisped but firmly said, “No Thur.”
“Alas,” he said, “then I must die.’
His soul went where they say souls, Fri.
They found his gloves, his coat and hat
And the coroner upon them Sat.
Former S. W. T. N. Students Predom
inant at Colorado-Concho
County Institute.
According to a recent letter receiv-
ed from W. R. Hardy, ex-Normal stu-
dent and now Superintendent of the
Mertzon, Texas public schools, more
than thirty ex-Normalites are now*
teaching school in Colorado and Con-
cho counties. The Colorado-Concho
county institute was held at Ballenger
during the holidays, at which institute
there was a larger number of teachers
who had attended school here than
from any other college.
Mr. Hardy was unable to get the
names of all the former Normal stu-
dents who are now engaged in teach-
ing in those two counties, but there are
at least more than thirty. There are
also a number of teachers in San An-
gelo and Tom Green county at large
who were students here, but that sec-
tion is in another institute so are not
counted in the group given below'.
Mr. Hardy’s letter shows that of the
twenty nine former Normal students
whose names he -^as able to get, five1
