SPRING AND LOVE
By Paul Smith
In the spring the young woman's
Lightly turned to thoughts of love
In the breeze where flowers were
On the trellised vines above.
Lovelorn Sadie Mae sat disconso-
lately on the front porch of her coun-
try home thinking of the joys of love
and praying for a boy friend, or beau.
"Oh, for the life of lover!" she was
thinking, as she swung gently back
and forth in the wicker porch swing,
watching the humming birds flitting
about the honeysuckle vines sur-
rounding the porch. Spring again and
her eighteenth year of life; and still
no one to, praise her and speak words
of love softly into her ear.
Suddenly her' longing was ended
with the appearance of a car in front
of the house. A gallant figure glid-
ed from the car and paused for a mo-
ment as Bulyer, the big German
Police dog, barked at him through the
fence. Summoning his courage, he
slipped quitely through the gate and
up to the porch.
"Oh, won't you sit down?" Sadie
Mae giggled as he stopped to knock
at the door. "It's such a beautiful
"Er-uh, I came to see " He
was interrupted. •
"Oh, you darling boy, I'm so glad
you came to see m^' She felt her
young heart thumping away as the
young man sat down beside her.
"I came to see you about "
Again he was stopped before he had
"Yes, darling, but I'm not ready to
be married yet. It's so nice of you to
ask me, though." She slipped closer
to him and slid her arm around him.
"But I don't want to marry you; I
merely want to "The girl
again cut him off.
"Kiss me then," she sighed, rather
disheartened at hearing that she was
to be neither married nor engaged*.
The young man turned and took
her into his young, strong arms and
kissed her gently. She closed her
eyes and felt his firm lips on hers.
Oh, what a feeling of contentment!
He broke the silence while she yet
lay in his arms clinglngly.
"Now ,my dear lady, if you are
satisfied, I would appreciate your be-
ing so kind as to make the first pay-
ment in the cream separator which
you purchased last week."
MORAL: "Love is like a traveling
salesman—coming and going."
Valentine teas were popular on the
T. W. C. campus Sunday afternoon,
February 9. "
The parlors of Ann Waggoner,
Mulkey Memorial and Boaz dormi-
tories were centers of enjoyment for
the girls from four until six o'clock.
Margaret Jobe was in charge of ar-
rangements at Mulkey and Florence
Barnes poured. Guests were received
by Mrs. Pollack and assisting Mulkey
girls. About one hundred and twenty
five guests called.
At the Boaz tea Helen Widlake,
Margaret Meek and Lucia Eaton
poured. Cakes and sandwiches were
served. Charlene Wright entertained
the guests with several piano selec-
tions during the afternoon.
The-xtable at Ann Waggoner was
covered with a lace cloth revealing
red hearts underneath. Tea, home-
made cookies, candied orange peel,
and sandwiches were served. Kath-
erine Sheats was in charge of ar-
rangements. Annetta Talley, Helen
McClanahan and Pauline Marlin

"Sportsmanship is that quality of

as does the athlete.
The college student should recog-
nize that the good name of the school
is more valuable than a game won by
unfair play. He should respond with
enthusiasm to the calls of the cheer
leaders for yells in support of the
team, esnecially when it is losing.
Then,too, it might not be a bad idea
to learn the rules of the various ath-
letic games so that either as a specta-
tor or critic you will be intelligent in
your remarks concerning the game.
And in connection with this you
should learn to accept decisions of
officials without question.
The program started with a series
of four solos taking in over two oc-
taves in pitch. Rankin Bowen, de-
scribed by Mrs. Lindsey as the "pur-
est tenor I have seen in years,"
started the program with "Hold Thou j
My Hand" by^ Briggs. Miss Jaunita
Stinnett, a lyric mezzo-soprano, then
presented "Snowflakes" by Cowen,
followed by Lowell Rainwater, bari-
tone, who rendered "Since We Part-

bass, presented Brahms' "Be Not

Miss Roselund was presented by her
teacher, Marius Thor, with whom she

thoroughly enjoyed the entire con-

That I had to come to this?

Just a poor abused "Fish."

Tell me why am I in demand?
For I am very very dumb
And I do not understand.
Yes, I'll admit I'm dumb
And my mind is very dense
Words cannot permeate the forces
Of my atrocious intelligence.
But even though I'm mistreated
My one consolation I've found,
Is that one day I'll be a Sophomore
Then I'll have the upper hand.
