be one of five stops to be made in
Texas by Dr. Landrith, and the stu-
dents are fortunate in being able to
hear this magnetic and forceful

Senior Class Enjoy Party.
After surviving the horrors of the
“mystery chamber”, in which screams
of horror and shouts of glee mingled,
the seniors were ushered into the
gym, which had been decorated with
Hallowe’en colors for the first senior
party of <the night of October 22nd.
After a formal program conducted
by Hilda Elstner, and participated in
by members of the senior class, a “get
acquainted” game was entered into by
all present. Elaine Smith was the
fiftieth person to shake hands with
George Hensin, who had been secret-
ly detailed by the entertainment com-
mittee to keep count, and she was ac-
cordingly awarded a prize.
The crowd then separated into four
groups, the Owls, Witches, Jack O’-
Lanterns, and Black Gats, to partici-
pate in numerous contests. Through-
out the evening the old gym rang with
the merry laughter, peppy songs, and
cheer yells from the different groups.
The Owls, by winning the largest
number of contests, became the hap-
py possessors of the “silver loving
Punch was served throughout the
evening. Following the grand march,

Sophomores Elect Officers.
The sophomores met on Tuesday,
October 12th, for the purpose of elect-
ing officers. Those elected were:
President, Virgie Payne; vice-presi-
dent, Florene Blackman; secretary,
Sarah Brown; treasurer, Eleanor
Cochran; Star reporter, Laura Haynes.

ficers and Miss Alma Leuders as

in which much shall be accomplished.
Physical Geography Class Goes on
At about one-thirty Friday after-
noon, Mr. Goodman and his Physical
Geography class started from the
Education building, with Wimberly as
their destination. Their purpose was
to observe the hills and rocks and
the effects of weathering and erosion.
After stopping several times along
the roadside for closer observation,
for discussions concerning the differ-
ent sights, and for taking pictures,
the party arrived at the Blanco Riv-
er. Here the cars were left, and the
group proceeded a-foot up the river.
More pictures were taken at interest-
ing spots, and the party returned to
their cars to continue their trip.
With much puffing and laughter on
the part of the students, one of the
Twin Sisters was climbed, and the
surrounding country was viewed. A
very interesting visit was made to
Jacob’s well. Pictures were taken at
both places. Afterwards light re-
freshments, consisting of cakes,
fruit, and the cool, clear water of
Cypress creek, were enjoyed by all.

DOINGS OF THE T,1,4,4,
Well, the past week proved anoth-
er thriller in the matter of football
games played in the T.I.A.A. An up-
set, which was as startling this week
as the Daniel Baker defeat at the
hands of Huntsville was last week,
was the defeat of the Abilene Chris-
tian Wildcats at the hands of the
West Texas Teachers, 7-6. The Wild-
cats had been picked by many as the
possible winners of the T.I.A.A., but
this defeat at the hands of the West
Texans leaves the race still anybody’s.
McMurray, as the result of A.C.C.’s
defeat, is the only undefeated team in
the conference. So far, she has play-
ed only two conference games, win-
ning one and tying the other. Her
test will come when she plays the
Daniel Baker Hillbillies.
Huntsville continues to play cham-
pionship football. She made the larg-
est score of the season Friday, when
she defeated the Commerce Lions at
Huntsville by the large score of 78-0.

kats should continue to be heard from.
their full strength for the first time
this season, and as a result, the Den-
tonites took their second had defeat
in as many weeks. Looks like this
is not Denton’s year to win!
Four teams are now tied for second
place, namely A.C.C., Daniel Baker,
San Marcos, and Huntsville, with Mc-
Murray in first place.

NO MATTER HOW
MUCH Y00 LEARN
You know only so much as you re-
member. Your mind will obey you
just in proportion to the requirements
you place upon it if you give it a
chance. You can always remember if
you train your mind to serve you
when and as you want it to serve. You
can think and talk better and clearer
with training that will take but a few
minutes of your time. Prof. M. V.
Atwood, formerly of the N. Y. College
of Agriculture at Ithaca, now Editor
of Utica Herald-Dispatch wrote: “I
have all memory courses and yours is
best of lot. You owe it to the public
to publish it in book- form.” In re-
sponse to this and other demands this

I got a dog; I got a cat;
I got a five room furnished flat.
The place is fine; the place is mine;
I signed right on the dotted line.
I got the ring and everything,
Yet I am sad and cannot sing:
The reason seems, oh, so absurd—
I’ve got the cage, but not the bird.
