Poor Freshmen, .even the teachers

A Place to Serve
Who will give the Fine Arts- build-
ing a sidewalk?
In past years many of the or-
ganizations in Texas Woman's Col-
lege have established monuments to
their existence and work by making
permanent contributions of useful-
ness or beauty toward the improve-
ment of the campus^ and buildings.
None of these additions, has added
.so materially to the pleasure and
comfort of the students as the side-
walk. from the administration build-
ing to the education building which
was the gift of the Senior Class of
'24, and the walk from Ann Wag-
gorier Hall, to the car stop which
was donated by the Kiwanis Club
•under the sponsorship of the class
of '24. '
Those who remember the days
, when a walk to the car stop in rainy
■weather means a tramp through mud
and slosh' by which one's health to
say nothing- of her shoes was seri-
ously endangered can best appreci-
ate the change. Likewise those who
waded to the education building in
wet weather and tramped oVer a.
stony road in dry rejoice in the pres-
But what about the fine arts stu-
dents who many times a. day cross
~ the campus in going" to the conserva-
tory? They are now undergoing the
same unpleasant inconveniences of
* which the remainder of the students
have been relieved. While you are
Enjoying a smooth, dry walk, a num-
ber of the faculty and students are
Still chosing between mud and rocks
for their walk many times a day.
So we beseech that some organi-
zation will not forget this condition
and, when planning to leave a per-
manent monument/ will remember
thut the best place to begin is at
the foundation and that all of our
foundations are not laid. *
i Can't your class or your club lay
a walk from Avenue E to the front
do.qr of the fine arts building and
from Boaz-Benbrook to the porch?
The Week of Revival
So many students believe that the
,?atipual flfiSSttng' in T. W. C. is held
for either the students who are not
professed Christians or for the
''back-sliders." This is certainly a
distorted viewpoint, and even should
it; be correct it would be rather
foolish to preach to a whole student
body in order to reach only a few.
The meeting is certainly beneficial
in reaching the non-believers and
instrumental in bringing the back-
sliders back into grace. It is a
season of religious feasting for all
the students, and a religious new
year because it is the time when
most of us do repent of our former
misdemeanors and resolve to begin
anew and live a better life. It is a
time aj#1 we not only make new
vows' out 'renew old ones.
Every condition is made for the
effect of the meeting, everything else
is made subservient to it. Special
prayer meetings, morning watches
and two services a day give every
stu<V-'nt an opportunity to at least
absorb some of the wonderful spirit
of this sbason. No student who will
put herself in a receptive mood can
fail to receive immeasurable good
from the services, we may even go
•Jo far as to say that a student who
has dohe nothing to prepare for the
meeting may profit by it. Iri fact,
, no orte, not even those who remain
withdrawn anil skeptical, can go
fhrotigh this week without.' being af-
fected by the spirit which ieign<r"at
However, it- is in this as in all
things—a receptive and open heart
is necessary for the greatest achieve-
ments of the Week, and this is a
(■aid where it would be well for all
of us to remember—"Put; the best
The Honor System in
T. W. C.
The executive board has been
talking about arranging for-academic
proctors during examinations. Girls,
let's uphold the ideals of student
honor so that will not be necessary.
Doesn't it hurt you to think that
you or maybe your next door neigh-
bor can't be trusted not to give or
receive aid in a test or an examina-
tion? We can remedy this if wb
will. First let's? see to it that we
do not receive aid ourselves. It is

see oho word but it is enough to
make us recall the thing- we want
to write. In connection with this
let's see that we do not give aid to
others. It is hard to resist helping
a friend by telling her something
that she kiiows so well butvcanriot
recall just at that moment. But we
cannot tip these things and main-
tain the highest possible standard
of honor. Lastly, it is our duly to
report) others thut we see giving* or
receiving aid. It is a hard thing to
do but it is necessary if we sign
Let's prove to the executive board,
the faculty and the whole student
body that the honor system can
work in T. W.C. better than in any
other college in the world.
" How Gossip Travels
Gossip is a stealthy traveler. It
works in darkness—the darkness of
ignorance. It originates in the black-
ness of unkindness whether con-
sciously or unconsciously.
We do not often'A>t.^ to think
and if we should, we would receive
a shock at the part we play either
wittingly' or unwittingly in the de-
velopment of gossip. There are a
few people who use gossip as a
trade, who maliciously start gossip
and who' relentlessly and with seem-
ing delight pick to pieces everyone
they see. They have no compunction
whatever and hesitate at nothing.
There is another kind of gossip in
■which we all more or less take pail.
We h avc often heard women's socie-
ties of the church ridiculed because
of their^-eputation for gossip—for
repeating and " discussing among
themselves the latest news, enlarg-
ing and gloating upon it until it be-
comes a caricature of the original
report. How often do college stu-
dents gather in their rooms or on
the Campus and eagerly feast on the
latest news, the latset scandal; col-
lege girls are not to he severely
