NO STUDENTS WELFARE
-At the request of the Dean of Stu-
dents five of the six classes of the
Normal met and elected officers. The
classes were all requested to nomi-
nate three or four of tneir class for
the Student Welfare Committee. The
nominees for this committee were to
be turned in to the Dean of Students
that he might pass on their eligibili-
ty and then the classes were each to
elect one representative from their
list of eligibles. So far, only three
classes have reported their nominees.
R would therefore seem that our
Students Welfare Committee will
have to be organized with only three
classes having i epresentation. we
hope that the otner classes will soon
send in their nominees to The Dean
of Students for his approval and
join us in the organization of tins
Welfare Committee and therefore se-
cure full representation for the stu-
Let’s get the old fighting spirit!
Idyliics Vote to Fed-
erate with tin eg
YYl. .11 lend delegate to state
The Idyliics held a peppy business
meeting Saturday afternoon in their
club-room, despite the fact that
Saturday is “Austin” and “San An-
tonio” day. The club voted unani-
mously to join the Federated
Womens’ Clubs, an expects to send
a delegate to the convention in San
Antonio on November 16. Many
benefits to the school, the club and
the individual members will be de-
rived by this decisive action on the
part of a Normal club to federate
with the State and National Womens’
A great but secret scheme was dis-
cussed at length and there are
prospects that there will be some-
thing doing on Norma lHill on
December 6. Mysterious orders for-
bid telling just what it will he—hut
keep' on the lookout for “Idyllic
Miss Juiia Terrell, chairman of the
program committee, submitted plans
for the term’s work. The club voted
to study the short stories of Bootn
Tarkington, feeling that the previous
notice taken of his books in Psychol-
ogy and English do not do justice to
our pleasure in them.
A sing-song, conducted by Miss
Gertrude Berry was then held, and
the members, especially the new
ones, could be heard humming the
old Idyllic Song after the meeting
had adjourned following fifteen yells
for the Idyliics.
All students and members of the
faculty have been invited to march
m the Educational . Amendment
Parade, starting from the Education
Building at 3 o’clock this afternoon.
Aii schools m San Marcos are going
to be in the parade and Normal must
make the best showing. Get in and
do your part.
It has been suggested that every
organization in the school display
their banners in the parade and no
doubt every student organization on
the hill will have its banner carried
thru the streets this afternoon.
Presidents! see that your orgainiza-
tion Is represented. Appoint some-
one to carry your banner.
It was first suggested that each or-
ganization march sparately but ow-
ing to a great many of the students
belonging ro more than one organi-
zation that plan was abandoned.
G$t busy at once and do not allow
a single school in town to outdo us.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that our next game
is with Academy? It will be on
November II, on Academy field. We
are not in the least concerned about
the outcome of the game but you
rooters, lets.make as good a showing
m the grandstand as our team will
make on the field. Now that will
not be an easy thing to do; it will be
almost a superhuman task, but we
can do it, we must do it.
When the yell leader calls fbr pep
rallies waste no time in getting to
the main auditorium. Boost the
team! Show your patriotism by
beating the Cub rooters while the
Bobcats beat the Cubs!

Whose calf—Why, the Normal s
Growing how?—In popularity a-
tnong the students and teachers.
What’s the reason?—Good service,
very delicious and tastefully served
meals, congenial associates, reason-
able prices, and unusual variety of
food from which to choose.
We feel sure, therefore, that the
above is sufficient reason for us to
take the liberty to" say that the
student body and the teachers who
patronize the Cafeteria hope that the
present management may be con-
tinued thruout the year.
Come to the' yell rallies!
Politician: “Who do you think will
be elected president?”
Foreigner: “I don’t know.”1
Politician: “Who do you- thinK nas
the best chance?”
Foreigner; “I don’t know.”
Politician (with exasperation):
“Well, who do you think has the
best show, Cox or Harding?”
Foreigner (brightening up): “Oh,
neither of them; I think Ringling
Bros, have the best show.”
All girls that are interested in Y. W.
activities should take note of the
fact that the meeting day has been
changed from Thursday to Wednes-
day. This change will not go into
effect until November 3, and the
council is very anxious to see if more
of our girls can be present at that
time. Surely our Y. W. should be as
live and active an organization as any
other in our college. We can only
make it such by the mnited coopera-
tion and support or our girls.
Possibly some do not feel the need of
the Y. W. but the Y. W. needs you
and surely there are benefits of
various kinds divided from an asso-
ciation of this kind.
Come out next Wednesday after-
noon immediately after the seventh
period. Bring your friends; meet us
in the main auditorium and you will
be greeted with a smile.
Every Normalite proud of their
football team this year and have a
just right to be so. The Bobcats
have come up to expectations and
have a good chance to win the Nor-
mal Championship. Two of the
Normals have been put out of the
way by decisive defeats and only
Denton remains on Thanksgiving.
The Academy game on Armistice day
will be a battle royal also tor the
Academy always gives S. W. T. N.
a great battle and this year will be

The squad is the largest one that
has ever turned out on Evans field
and besides they are the most ex-
perienced. Every week some new
man looms up as a contender tor the
first eleven and no team this yeai-
has given the varsity the battle that
the scrubs have when they are going
right. The strength of the team lies
in the reserves.
Football has been most successful
and it looks as though the same will
be true in the rest of the athletics
this year. In basket ball, five of
last years letter men are in school
as. well as several former stars and a
good many of last seasons scrubs
who must be reckoned with. The
Gymnasium will add impetus to the
game and it will mean we can have
good teams here and a chance to
develop, which we have never had
before. The schedule has not been
made but Texas, Southwestern, and
Huntsville will be on the list.
Baseball never looked brighter
than for next year. Nine letter men
are back and there are other baseball
men here this Fall that any college
nine would be glad to have. A good
many of the men played ball this
summer with teams that were rated
among the best in the State and
nothing helps as much as experience.
A strong schedule is contemplated
and there is no reason whj^ fhe base-
ball team should not duplicate the
deeds of the football squad.
There might be such a thing as.
