yard line. Joe Moore rushed one first
down but time was called for the half
before another could be made after
Griggs had completed a six-yard pass
When Shelton ran back Schneider’s
kickoff from the ten-yard line to the
thirty-yard mark, the Normal opened a
drive in the third period. Shelton and
J. Kellam gained nine yards in two
tries at the line and Brown then circled
left end for a first down on the Dallas
U.’s thirty-five-yard line. The Normal
rushed a first down on plunges by
Storey and Coers, relieving Shelton,
hurt, but a fifteen yard penalty for
holding set them back and they could
make up only ten yards, finally losing
the ball on futile forward passing on
Dallas U’s thirty-yard line. Griggs op-
ened up his passing game after two
whacks at the line and completed a
thirteen-yard pass to Schneider for a
first down. But Owens fumbled on
the next play and Kallina recovered for
the Normal on the Hilltoppers’ forty-
five-yard line. Another punt exchange
followed and then the Normal bucked
one first down on Dallas twenty-six-
yard line, but the drive was stopped
and the visitors again surrendered the
ball on failures to complete passes in
four downs. It was Dallas’ ball on its
own twenty-three-yard line as the quar-
Griggs sent in Meisch for Owens,
apparently to open the play. But the
Normal stopped the Hilltoppers. Griggs’
punt was partially blocked and Shep-
pard recovered for Dallas U on the
twenty-five-yard line, first_ down. Three
mor plays failed to gain and when
G1' s’ punt was blocked, Buvens re-
c ed for Dallas U on the twenty-
i line. Buvens made a fourteen-
..rd gain around left end for a first
clown, and Joe Moore went through
the line for another on the forty-five-
yard line. Kallina threw a Dallas
back for a five-yard loss and Griggs
punted to the Normal’s forty-yard line.
Coers took nine around Sam Moore’s
end and Cummings relieved him. The
Normal rushed a first down. A fifteen
yard penalty set the Normal back, but
Kellam completed a fifteen-yard pass
to Brown, who ran fifteen more, and a
penalty on Dallas U added fifteen, mak-
ing first down on the twenty-yard line.
They rushed seventy yards and a pass,
Kellam to Coers, made it first down
on the seventy-yard line. Three plunges
and a yard to go, then Coers fumbled,
but recovered, and fell across the line.
C. Kellam kicked goal. Normal 27,
Dallas U 6.

Dallas U showed a flash of its old
form. Schneider returned the kick-off
to midfield, and after Meisch had hit
tackle for six, Griggs completed a
twenty-yard pass to Paul, making first
down on the twenty-four-yard line.
Schneider, tackle around, carried the
ball to the seven-yard line, and Meisch
broke through for a touchdown. Griggs
place-kicked goal. Normal 27, Dal-

MANY NORMALITES GO
TO HEAR FROST READ
HIS OWN POETRY
(Continued from page One)
WHERE SOME OF OUR
EX-STUDENTS ARE NOW
telling us about than many more ex-
planatory phrases could.
In “The Hillside Thaw”—a picture
of. the sun melting the ice during the
day, and the nightly refreezing under
the cold bewitching radiance of the
moon—jMl\ ErpU, .gave a picture that
, will long linger in the mind of'Abase
who heard him. Although a scene of
that type was unfamiliar to us, his read-
ing and preparation for the poem made
it entirely comprehensible.
Following this poem he read “The
Death of the Hired Man” and then
“The Telephone” a ‘little expedition in-
to the realm of sentamentalism” as he
confessed it of himself. The last poem
read, “The Road Not Taken” was
meant to symbolize the regret of a man
over the decision he made at the place
where the roads forked. It represented
just the opposite of the idea which O.
Henry expresses in his “Roads of Des-
tiny”: “This or the other road is what
makes all the difference”, says Frost.
In his discussion of free verse Mr.
Frost assumed the attitude of the class-
room lecturer or teacher. He asked
that the audience ask him questions re-
garding free verse. In his discussion
he confessed an indifference to the
technique of free verse. In judging
the poet’s attitude toward free verse,
one should remember that Frost him-
self has used none of it himself. His
explanations were not conclusive. He
rather left the hearer in a critical frame
of mind by the suggestions he made.
For instance, he asked: “Is there
rhythm without some kind of meter?”
He next drew an analogy between the
breaking of the step as soldiers do in
the march across a bridge to avoid the
theoretical breakdown of the bridge
and the break in the technique of poet-
ry that Ezra Pound and Amy Lowell
made so much off.
Again, he put the audience in a quiz-
zical state of mind when he asked the
question: “Is it true that anything
which moves has rhythm? It is cor-
rect to believe with the French that
anything that is said well has rhythm ”
In giving some personal beliefs he
said: “I say that all free verse is rough-
ly metrical. Free verse gives us a
chance to be briefer than we could be
A sense of humor is almost requisite
to the modern poet as we can conceive
of him—and we were pleased to dis-
cover that Mr. Frost possesses this
quality in a manner that is both clever
Although Miss Lowell has declared
that Mr. Frost is utterly lacking in
humor, and although he has admitted
that Miss Lowell and he sat until the
midnight tallow had burned low argu-
ing this point, he declaring that he did
possess «the attribute of humor, she ar-
guing that he did not—he made light of
the matter, a proof to gainsay the very
thing, so it seems to us, of what Miss
Lowell was contending for. We believe
that Miss- Lowell is entirely mistaken,
for the poet-diverted his listeners time
and again with his happy touches and
his facetious (remarks,,as well ..a* .with,
poems inherently humorous.
The pride of any colleeg or univer-
sity is the success that its one-time
students are making of themselves and
for their fellow man. Following are
some of the sons and daughters of
which old S. W. T. N. is proud:
F. H. Granstaff, debator against
Denton in 1909, and A. E. Zellers, de-
bator against Canyon 1912, are suc-
cessful lawyers in Weatherford, Texas.
L. C. McDonald, President of the
Alumni, is superintendent of the Eagle
Lake public schools. Mac is as live a
wire in the work of the schools as he
was a live wire in college.
Donna High School has claimed An-
nie B. Goodman for the last five years.
She graduated last summer.
Heavy Ridgeway is principal of the
Edinburg High School. We’ve heard
Heavy has tried something new . . . .
Frances Donalson, popular student
here last year, is teaching in the public
schools of Tuttle, Oklahoma.
Anna Woodson, graduate of S.W.T.
N. C. last year, is teaching Mathematics
in the Clarksville High School. Anna
is doing some good work there. We
knew she would.

ably alike, although there was some
eighty pounds difference in their
weights. Here is a problem worth
studying you people who are in H. E.
220 or 240, also you followers of
Dawain. Perhaps you can explain the
wide difference in the weights of the
two who were reputed to be of the same
But we can not stop with this, for
here are the members of the school
board arriving. There is the dignified
and all-knowing Justice of the Peace,
the Lady of Bear Creek Politics, and
the Farmer from ’way up the Brushy
Flat, who has nothing to say but is
able to talk an hour on the subject of
tobacco prohibition as v he spit gobs of
the brown liquid on the floor, much to
the disgust of the white-eyed Lazarus.
For a while the warning of the
school master, to the children to be
quiet and well behaved while visitors
were present kept the children in good
order. But finally the pent up energy
Lad. to. give vent to itself. The gigg-
ling girl saw something funny. Huckle-
berry .Finn could no longer hold his
nose in the little chalk ring upon the
black board, so he drew a larger one
more easily accessible to him. During
this time the boy to whom the luck fell
to uphold the honor of the Dunce Cap
found a chance to fling chalk very ac-
curately and fiercely.
All during the speeches mischievous
kids cut capers, and is customary in a
school of this kind, this one had its
We wondered why that tough boy
and that sissy were placed on opposite
sides of the teacher’s pet. Oh! The
horrors of that girl pulling and popping
her chewing gum and then rubbing it
into the little Dutch girl’s hair. The
whole was one grand conglomeration of
dolls, candy, dinner pails, tops, loose
shoes, what not, some one crying here,
another whistling there. What will
these awful kids be if they ever live
to grow up?
It would be impossible to describe
the entire performance, for there were
more than forty who were trying out
for the club. That there was a varie-
ty is an established fact. The play was
original in every way. We’ll say that
the teachers knew what they were do-
ing when it came to staging this peda-
gogical play. There was talent from
all corners of the state in every phase

tatively that the fololwing sixteen of
The interest which San Marcos peo-
ple took in the opportunity to hear Ro-
bert Frost at Austin is only another
evidence of the fact that the interest
in poetry is growing. It was a note-
worthy fact that practically the entire
membership of the E. 213 class from
San Marcos went. Some of those who
heard Mr. Frost are: Mr. and Mrs. R.
