BACK AT WORK AGAIN
When the student enters school in
September he sees ahead of him two
vacations: one at Christmas time, the
other at the close of school. During
the first part of the Semester the
Chritmas holiday season is befpre
his eyes and he works with: the idea
of a slight lapse in effort at that time.
This year’s Christmas holidays
have come and gone. It is now timef s
One of the charming events of last
week was the entertainment of the
members of the J. 0. Y. Bridge Club
Iby Mrs. Durie Helm at her stately
home out on Riverside Farm.
* Bridge was played thru a series of
five games with high score prize for
club members going to Mrs. Kelsey
Bradstreet and second high to Mrs.
Robt. L. Baldridge. Guest high was
won by Miss Berenice Schow. /The
dainty refreshment collation consist-
ed of creamed chicken, fruit salad,
cheese straws, coffee and confections.
The especially invited guests were
Miss Willie Helm, Mrs. P. E. Schow
Jr., Mrs. Dennis Glass of Beaumont,
and Miss Berenice Schow of Dallas.
The club members present were:
Mesdames N. W. Willett, C. A. Or-
beck, N. M. Colwick, Robt. L. Bald-
ridge, F. J. Spangle, Hector Hill, Kel-

It may be said that a grapefruit is
a lemon that has taken Jtfvantage of
its opportunities. By way of compar-
ison we would say that the men and
women who are high up in business
and business positions were once
lemons, but now grapefruits because
they have developed their opportuni-
ties. When they went into their first
position they were helpers not help-
less. The difference between the help-
er and the helpless is the training.
The modern business man says, I
want help that has been trained to
understand business principles and
methods. His secretary must not on-
ly know how to write shorthand and
transcribe it, but must be able to han-
dle all kinds of business papers con-
nected with business transactions.
His bookkeeper must know how to
keep books, to read and analyze
them. He must know something about
the underlying principles of buying
and selling, of credits and collections,
income tax, insurance, economics, etc.
Something of the human element
that enters into every phase of bus-
iness. Graduates of the Byrne Com-
mercial College have all this and
more; they have much that, they do-
not get out of books. Their training
gives them poise, conftferice and a
basis for businea^gro^^llt devel-
ops initiative, enthusutpfk and lead-
ership in business. Thai? is why they
draw good salaries as bankers, sales-
men, accountants, secretaries, etc.
They are business trained—not just
There is as much difference be-
twedh commercial schools, methods
and system#, as there is between a
stage coach and a modern bus and
the saving of time afforded you by
the Byrne Commercial College - is
about as great as the bus saving
over the stage coach, yet the cost of
their courses is no more than those
of other schools.

We turned out for Christmas hol-
idays on December 20, 1930, and re-
turned to school oil January 2, 1031.
Each person was very anxious for
Christmas to come but was not so
anxious when Christmas was over,
because it would be difficult to settle
down to work again. Sipce Christmas
holidays are over everyone is look-
ing forward to the Easter holidays.
The football boys are the proud
owners of football sweaters.
Several girls, alter having returned
from Christmas holidays, had their
hair cut off. Be in style!
Most of the students who stay up
at the dormitory spent the week-end
in the dormitory.
Saturday night, many of the dor-
mitory students went to the show.
On the way to the show some of the
boys had an exciting time—a wreck.
No one was seriously injured—except
Monday the Reinertsor girls were
greatly surprised when they received

Hill of Glen Rose.
However, previous to these Wed-
dings, Mr. and Mrs. Selmer Anderson
announced their marriage. Mrs. An-
derson was formerly Miss Mildred
McMillan, ’30. She has until recently
been a student in the North Texas
State Teachers College at Denton.
” The sad news of the death of Cath-
eryn Goldsmith of Walnut Springs,
was received by Clifton friends
shortly before the Christmas holi-
days. Her passing away was the re-
sult of an operation for appendicitis.
Miss Goldsmith was an ex-student of
Clifton College, having attended dur-
ing the school year of ’28 and ’29.
Jut before the close of school for
the holiday recess. Coach Gandrud
called a meeting of the football letter
men of this year for the purpose of
electing a football captain for next
fall. The Cats acted wisely when they
elected Harry Reese, a former Clif-
ton High star to lead them during
This year found Harry at a half-
back position on the College team.
While he is not exactly a star, he can
always be depended upon to give all
that he’s got. He was one of the
hardest workers on the squad, always
cheerful and always determined to
do what he was supposed to do.
Mr. Reese will undoubtedly make
an A No. 1 captain.
Before the Christmas holidays, the
Female Cats journeyed to Morgan
where they were unable to claw their
way to a victory. ’Stoo bad but the
final score of this basketball game
was 18-9 in favor of the Morganites.
For the Cats Captain Mary Ann
Christenson and Naomi Gibson did
stellar work. Travis Knutson also
displayed that she knew what it was
The girls will have some more

The boys are handicapped in not
