FOR RATTLER GAME
Misfortune Still Haunts Camp of Bobcats in the
Form of Injury.
“Let’s keep a good thing going.” That will be the battle cry
of the Bobcats as they invade the camp of the St. Mary’s Rattler
Saturday afternoon in San Antonio. With new confidence gained
by the decisive defeat of the Denton Eagles last Saturday, Coach
Strahan’s men will be in prime condition for the game Saturday

Newman Club Enjoys
In the Newman club room, Satur-
day night, the members and their
guests enjoyed a very exciting Hal-
lowe’en party. Orange and black de-
corations with jack o’lanterns hang-
ing from the ceiling added the real
The trip through Hades, in which
©very one was familiarized with his
ancestors’ bones, produced a great
sensation. A witch fortune-teller
came, and of course every one was
anxious to know her fare tellings.
Yarious contests and games with sev-
eral musical numbers increased the
amusement for the evening. After all
of the strenuous pleasure the party
.was strengthened with appropriate re-
' freshments consisting of pumpkin pie,
chocolate-covered nuts, red apples,
and fruit punch.
[What Are We
In College For?
Almost any student can give some
reason off-hand for his presence in a
college or university. But what lies
back of these primary aims? Some-
times students on entering college are
fairly sure of why they came, but
become more confused as to their
aims as the years pass. Who has a
right to be in college ? How can one’s
presence there be fully justified?
These vital questions will be dis-
cussed by capable thinkers of the col-
lege at the Y.MjC.A. meeting Thurs-
day at 10:00 a. m. Every young man,
whether he is a member of the “Y”
or not, is invited to be present.
on Sex Education to
Speak Here Monday
Through the efforts of the Y.M.C.A.
Dr. Seerley, noted lecturer on sex edu-
cation, will be at the college Monday,
November 7th, and will address the
student body at assembly period. He
will also address the young men at
2:30 p. m. and the young women at
4:30. Students ' having classes con-
flicting with these periods will be ex-
cused from class.
Dr. Seerley is a college and medical
school graduate. He has taught
physiology, psychology, and various
aspects of physical education in the
Y.M.C.A. College at Springfield,
Mass., for thirty-four years, and has
been Dean of the College for many
years. He has been one of the pio-
neers in the study and practical hand-
ling of sex problems, and has had a
large and successful experience in
speaking on the subject to all kinds
of groups, particularly to parents and
tteachers, and to young people them-
selves. He has been lecturing to col-
lege students and faculties for many
During the war Dr. Seerley went
to France under the direction of Dr.
M. J. Exner and the auspices of the
Y.M.C.A. to take charge of the Bu-
reau of Social Hygiene, which was
directing sex-education lectures in the
army. Dr. Seerley’s lectures were
the most appreciated and most effec-
tive of any by the group of speakers
in this field, because of their scienti-
fic soundness and their constructive
Dr. Seerley has had a particularly
Icu-gc experience in personal inter-
views with boys and young men in
which their personal problems have
been discussed. This experience gives
him an unusual background for deal-
ing with these questions helpfully.
Dr. Seerley has been at the Col
lege twice, and has made a very fav-
orable impression on the students who
have heard him.

Nineteen Students Honored in
San Marcos Library
Club Picks Leaders
The Library Club met Thursday,
October 20, and elected the following
officers to serve the coming year:
Faybert J. Martin, Mission, presi-
dent; Yera Mitchell, Killeen, vice-
president; Lora Hicks, San Marcos,
secretary-treasurer; Mattie Belle Mc-
Intyre, Pedagog editor; Paul Town-
send, Star reporter.
The Colege library contains 24,460
volumes; the Training School library
over 1200, with a joint circulation of
over 700 books per day. The library
student-assistant staff is drawn from
the student body of the college, and
is composed of. twenty young men
and women who are thus working
their way through college, and who
form the Library Club, with the ad-
dition of E. B. Jackson, head librar-
ian; Mrs. Lucy Burleson, supervisor
of loans; Miss Adelle Mitchell, refer-
ence librarian; and Miss Ruth Rob-
erts, of the regular staff, who are re-

Masculine premonition and feminine
intuition did it! Those Exes knew
that the Bobcats would have an eag-
ley taste in their mouths after the
game and that the last course would
be a 38-0 score served up and gar-
nished with tail-feathers. Hence came
the old students from far and wide
to see the soul-satisfying slaughter.
The shortness of this column per-
mits only a bare mention of the names
of some of those illustrious exes who
so honored us Saturday. If we were
to attempt to print even their major
achievements, it would take every col-
umn in a whole galaxy of Stars.
That bunch of ex-Bobcats formed a
real “T” party. There was Claude
Dailey, who forsook his team in Don-
na to watch his teammates pluck the
Wylie Summers, of Wharton; Aaron
Whitener, from LaGrange; and Har-
roll Stevens, from Matagorda, were
all found warming their share of the
Turner Kaderli, Emmett Shelton,
and Elbert Shelton found their way
from Austin; and Red Boggus and
Howard “Little” Brown came up from
the opposite direction. The main idea
seemed to be to get here.
Hayden Willis came all the way
from Seguin, and Carl Eubanks, from
Lampasas—both with the full knowl-
edge of how the thing was going to
Wednesday morning at the as-
sembly period, the fall elections to
the local chapter of the Scholarship
Society were announced by Dr. Nolle,
sponsor of the Scholarship Society
here. Nineteen students, the largest
number ever to be elected to the lo-
cal chapter of the Scholarship So-
ciety, were honored Wednesday morn-
ing. Of the nineteen students hon-
ored, eight are seniors and eleven
are juniors. From the total of the
eight seniors who were elected, five
are old members of the Society, from
last year’s election. The ones from
the senior class who have been hon-
ored twice are: Mary Frances Du-
Bose, Manton Ellis, Evelyn Eman-
uel, Sister Augustine, and Ella Horn-
ung. A singular honor was paid to
Louise Taylor, elected from the jun-
ior class, in the fact that she has
made the best average of any stu-
dent ever elected from the junior
class. The students elected from each
class represent the highest ten per-
cent in the matter of grades. The
following students were elected: Jun-
iors, Louise Taylor, Lena Belle Bar-
ber, Johanna Walling, G. Preston
Smith, Jim Jones, Mrs. R. A. Tampke,
Adelene Thurman, Mrs. Gertrude Beid-
ler, Selma Wuest, Lora Hicks, and
Katherine Wall; seniors, Sister Au-
gustine, Adele Kruger, Mary Frances
DuBose, Manton Ellis, Evelyn Eman-
uel, Ella Hornung, Nancy Fraser, and
LYON HOUSE LOCALS
Mary’s. Barring two or
three injuries, the Cats are in good
physical condition, and no alibies will
be offered if St. Mary’s come off win-
ner of the game Saturday.
If the Bobcats can show anything
like the offensive strength they had
against Denton last Saturday, they
should have very little trouble in
taking the number of the Rattlers.
With the possible exception of Clark
and Vest, the veteran Bobcat back-
field is in perfect condition and should
gain many a yard this coming Sat-
urday. The line, which showed some
real first class football Saturday, will
again be in shape to go Saturday.
With the exception of Stribling, the
entire line is in good shape. Clark,
backfield find of last Saturday, will
again be ready to take his regular
position Saturday, although^ his in-
jured shoulder may trouble him some-
what. George Vest, smashing full-
back, may not see service in the game
Saturday, as his injured shoulder has
not completely healed yet, and Coach
Strahan may save him for the Hunts-
ville game on Armistice day. The
entire team will make the trip Sat-
urday, and quite a few may see ser-
vice in the game.
Last year, the Bobcats under the
leadership of the flashy McCall, ran,
bucked, and passed through the St.
Mary’s team for a decisive 36-0 vic-
tory. This year, however, the Bob-
cats are minus many of the veterans
that made possible the one-sided vic-
tory of last year, and St. Mary’s may
pull a surprise and kick the old dope
bucket for a couple of loops; however,
this is not expected, as the Rattlers
have yet to win a single game this
season. Taking all facts into con-
sideration, the Bobcats should defeat
the Rattlers by at least three touch-
downs. Only the final score will tell
how accurate this guess is.
