Our editor, J. B. McBryde, has
been called home, his brother
being very ill. We are hoping
that his brother will soon be
better for we need; Mac in gettii g
out the Star.
The purpose of the Star is to
serve as a medium for the ex-
pression of the spirit and ideals
of our institution; of wholesome
interest in school work, society
and athletic endeavor; for the
further training in literary ex-
pression and organized effort;
last, for the creating of a strong
bond! of interest between the at-
tending and the ex-students. So

what you help the staff to make
it. Without your co-operation
and support we would indeed be
handicapped. Let us have your
articles. They are expressions
of your literary ability, and that
is what the Star wants. We not
always know just what kind of
topic you would like to write on;
neither do we know just which
students are willing to do the
work for us. But putting aside
these, you write your articles,
iand drop them into, the Star box.
They will be joyfully considered,,
and at the same time be ap-
preciated very much.
Students havei been heard to
say, ‘‘You are not talking to me
when it comes to writing. I
can’t write anything.” We just
want to say to you here, “Have
you ever tried?” The spirit of
the one who says, “My English is
poor; but I’ll do my best” is very
much admired. That is the kind
of fellow who will succeed.

The Star appreciates to the
fullest extent comments, and
merited criticisms, be they ad-
verse or favorable (and, perhaps
it hearkens more effusively to
the latter) when such articles are
properly signed by their authors;
but it cannot appreciate any
comment which the author is a
shamed, afraid or unwilling to
acknowledge. And so we sav
now, once and for all: we cannot
take the responsibility for a con-
tribution which is sent in un-
signed, and we cannot pa$r any
attention to requests incognito.

A SIDELIGHT VIEW OF
Live up to your obligations.
If you have promised to do some-
thing or give some money to
some cause, make good your
promise. Whenever your society,
dlub, or organization gives a
picnic or party and has to assess
an extra fee, or else do not try
to get out of paying your part
of it. Pay it yourself, or else
some one will have to pay it for
you even tho you had a better
time than someone who did his
Stand by your society, organi-
zation and class in anything the
majority thinks best for the
group. If you take an oath of
membership live up to it. Whe i
you are absent or fail to brmg
up your part on the program,
do not argue with the excuse
committee unless you can present
a reasonable excuse.
All of the school activities have
a new, live, spirit of work and
cooperation, this year. All of
you who have not taken part in
something start now while the
chance is ripe and enjoy the bene-
fits you will derive. You get out
of school just what you put in it..
Do not standi aloof, condeeend to
join in the enjoyment. And last,
we mention, the first thing is to
be loyal to the S. W. T. Normal,
at least while you are in it.
Do not knock the school or any
of the societies you are in if you
do people will think you are .. . ?
The oild saying is “If you don’t
like what you are in—get out.”
And if you can’t boost the thing
of school activities let other
students feel free by keeping

Listen! Next Thursday is the
time for the Y. M. C. A. to meet.
We meet in the Auditorium of
the Training School. Last meet-
ing found about 35 of the mem-
bers present. Next meeting must
find all of the membership pres-
ent, as there is some business in
the way of paying dues and re-
ceiving your card of membership
—fifty cents is due for the re-
maining part of the year. Mr.
Tanner, and Mr. Rode are to de-
liver something that will be
worth your while. Remem Her
this is a union of all men of the
Normal—and if you want to do
some good to yourself and help
others be sure and come next

By staging a sensational raPy

turned the five hundred excited
spectators into a howling mob of
victorious supporters, the Rice

game on the basket ball court of

Friday night Southwestern
and Baylor met on the basket ball
court in a one-sided affair. The
superiority of the Pirate Quintet
was manifested in the game.
They scored at will and the game
was never in doubt. South-
western won the game by a score
of 31 to 15.

THE ODDS ENTERTAIN
The Country Life Club met at
the usual place of meeting,
Saturday at the 7th period. The
odds had planned a “surprise”
for the evens, so the Literary
program was postponed until the
next regular meeting, and the
40 members present started out
on the hike the evens on one side
of the road and the odds on the
other. They were directed to
count all the animals they saw on
their own side of the road, the
winners to receive a prize. When
the party reached the river, the
lists were read, and the “ani-
mals” seen included everything
from mosquitoes to men! The
time was very enjoyably spent in
playing games until the great
big basket of eats arrived. The
boys made a fire, and we ail
toasted marshmallows, and ate
apples, this being mixed with lots
of talking and laughing, of
course, as the “country lifers”
are certainly a jolly and interest-
ing bunch. —P. M.
