Trinity Tigers to
Invade 'Cat Den
THREE BOBCAT STARS CRIPPLED IN GAME AT ABILENE
College Theatre Is
Coach Barry Holton and his Trinity Tigers will come to San
Marcos Friday, determined to win in order to make up for a
sound drubbing administered to them last Saturday by the Rice
Owls of Houston. On the other hand, the Bobcats go into the
game with bared teeth and claws,
and a demonstration which is likely
to bring about a reversal of form
over the showing made against the
Yellow Jackets in their last home
game. A question arises! which is
mightier, the claw of the Bobcat or
that of the Tiger?
The defeat administered to the Tig-
ers by the Owls would indicate that
the Presbyterians are not such a
strong combination after all, since the
Owls lost to St. Edward’s eleven the
week before by the one-sided score
of 31 to 0. It is to be conceded, how-
ever, that the Owls were probably a
much stronger team in the tussle with
the Tigers than they were when they
tasted defeat at the hands of St. Ed-
ward’s. Dope is all right, provided
one does not take too much of it,
therefore let us beware of the Tigers.
The Bobcats will be handicapped in
Friday’s tussle owing to the fact that
Vest, Stribling, and Hoper received
injuries in the Abilene game that
will probably slow them down a bit.
It is likely that Stribling will not be
able to enter the game.
Coach Holton’s crew will use the
Notre Dame style of play, which has
been solved by the Bobcats in prev-
ious games; therefore, we believe it
can, and will, be broken up again.
Trinity has played four games this
seanson, having lost three and won
one. However, we can not say that
the boys from Waxahachie are weak,
because the three games lost were to
Southwest Conference teams. The
Tigers won their game from Weather-
ford Junior College.
The game is scheduled to start at
three o’clock. All students and their
friends of the Bobcats are urged to
be out there pulling for OUR CATS.
Let us send the Tigers home feeling
the sting of deafeat.
The probable line-up:
Morton ......................................P. Allen
Gordon .................................... H. Allen
Stribling or Hart ............ Hollenshead
Hopper .................................... Burleson
Arnold .................................... Kozelski
Lindsey .................................... Cochran
Zunker ........................................ Rhome

HAVE BEEN AUDITED
Representatives of the firm of
Ernst and Ernst, auditors, have been
at work for two weeks auditing the
College books. In this instance, the

With the formal opening of the
Fall term, the College Theatre and
associated organizations make their
bow to the student body. The his-
tory of dramatic production ist S.W.
T.T.C. is primarily found in the ac-
tivities of the old Rabbit Foot Dra-
matic Club which has rendered long
and fruitful service under at least
The producing organization in the
college will hereafter be known as the
“College Theatre”, drawing its tal-
ent from all students on the cam-
pus. Those people who have rendered
service to the College Theatre either
by acting or technical work are elig-
ible to election to the College play-
ers. The College players will not be
a producing group though its mem-
bers may participate in the activities
of the College Theatre.
Closely associated with the College
Theatre and the College Players is the
group to be known as the Apprentice
Players. This organization is com-
posed of those students who by
means of tryouts show that they have
some dramatic talent and are inter-
ested in play production. The Ap-
prentice Players is not a producing
organization, but its members may
participate in productions of the Col-
lege Theatre and may be elected to
membership in the College Players.
For those members of the College
Players who have rendered unusual
and distinguished service to the Col-
lege Theatre there will be an honor-
ary organization to be known as
Purple Mask. Election to Purple
Mask will be among the highest hon-
ors a student can receive while a
student in S.W.T.T.C.

College Shocked at
Death of Mrs. King
Former Head of the Public Speaking
Department at College Succumbs
The community was shocked on the
afternoon of Saturday, October 6, to
learn of the death of Mrs. Hester
Graves King, and the College commu-
nity was especially grieved, for she
was for a number of years a much
honored and loved teacher in the Col-
Mrs. King came to San Marcos sev-
eral years ago as Miss Graves. Her
first work here was in the Training
School; but she was soon transferred
to the college and had charge of the
work in public speaking and drama-
tics. Here her work was noteworthy,
as she was especially strong in win-
ning the confidence of her pupils and
in inspiring them with something of
her own enthusiasm.
About five years ago Miss Graves
married Mr. Henry King of this city.
She continued to teach for a year or
The Lobos suffered their second de-
feat, this time at the hands of the
fast Texas Military Institute eleven
at San Antonio, 19 to 0. The score
does not indicate the kind of game
it really was, because both elevens
were evenly matched and up to the
last of the third quarter neither team
had been able to score. Both teams
got lucky breaks, and there was much
fumbling and intercepting of passes
until in the third quarter, when T. M.
I. intercepted one and returned it
for about ten yards. This success fol-
lowed by a stiff offense, brought the
ball over for their first touchdown.
The fourth quarter began with the
teams about mid-field and still fight-
ing. The Lobos opened up with a
few passes in an attempt to score, and
two of these were intercepted, the last
one being carried over for a touch-
down. This was a wide-wing pass,
and when it was intercepted, there
was an open field to the goal. From
here on it was one pass after another

LOBOS TO MEET
Lobos Weak With Three Out Because
of Lack of Grade Points.
The Lobos will take on the Austin
Dummies at Austin next Saturday for
their third game of the season. The
Dummies have one of the strongest
teams ever gotten together at the In-
stitute for the Deaf. They succeded
in beating the Oklahoma Dummies
last week, 13 to 0.
The Lobos will miss the services
of three of their men this week be-
cause of the weekly eligibility ruling,
which will cut out two regulars and
a substitute. Conner at fullback and
Stanley at left end will be hard places
to fill. Willoughby will try and fill
Stanley’s place, and Ledbetter at full-
back should fill Conner’s shoes with
perfection. “Kinky” Carnes has been
shifted to center, and SoRelle has been
shifted from center to quarter and
should be a strong addition to the
backfield with his great skill at pass-
ing and his educated toe. Joe King,
the regular quarter, is out with a
lame pair of ankles and with a few
days rest should be ready to go again
Discussion as to whether or not
love, hate, greed, or fear, or what,
is the greatest emotion for dramatic
purposes was being had at the Me-
tro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio recently,
when Miss Garbo was asked her opin-
“It has just been said that love is
the greatest emotion,” said Miss
Garbo. “I do not understand why
people believe that. Love, I think,
would be most uninteresting unless
othe#—perhaps all — emotions were
combined with it.
“For instance, a sacrifice is made
for love. The emotion of sacrifice
is more poignantly dramatic than the
love which is the inspiration. Hate
I think can be greater in intensity
than love. I do not believe any
drama can be built around a single
isolated emotion. In fact, I should
say it is rather obvious that drama
arises from a clas hof emotions, and
that it would be extremely difficult
to put one’s finger on one of the
emotions and say this is the most
important, or the most interesting.
“Love may be the most important
emotion to the average person. I don’t
know. I have heard it said that greed
—'desire for money—ambition, the de-
sire for life, are emotions which ef-
fect most persons most deeply. But
love is a tremendous force in life.
There is no doubt about that. And it
is an emotion that is common to all
of us. We enjoy idealizing it, and we
live ourselves in the loves of drama-
tic characters. The love theme al-
ways may appear to be dominant in
drama, but the driving impulses be-
hind are what make the drama pos-
Miss Garbo continued, “For in-
stance, in this picture we are working
on now, ‘The Mysterious Lady’, which
is due at the Palace Theatre next
week, I win the love of Conrad Na-
gel to rob him. Then. I struggle for
an opportunity to show my deep love
for him to him. I must go through
many emotions besides love. And so

other forms of community betterment

Bobcats Shut Out
In Abilene Game
STEVENS AND KEYES STAR AS WILDCATS WIN 20-0
Playing on their own field, the Abilene Christian College Wild-
cats defeated the San Marcos Bobcats to the tune of 20 toO last
Saturday at Abilene. It was the second T.I.A.A. victory for the
Christians against no defeats in the conference. The loss marked
ihe third in four starts for
Coach Strahan’s men, but the percent-
age of won and loss in the T.I.A.A.
becomes .500, as this was the first
conference defeat against one victory.
The game opened with the Bobcats
exhibiting a fairly strong offense, but
neither team scored in the first per-
iod. In the second quarter Branum,
rushed by Wildcat lineman, got
off a poor punt, kicking out of bounds
on his own thirty-yard line. Then

Making Survey of All State Teachers
W. M. Thornton; Dallas “News”
representative, paid the College a
visit Tuesday, October 9. At the di-
rection of his newspaper, Mr. Thorn-
ton is getting thoroughly acquainted
with the Teachers Colleges of Texas
in order that the “News” may render
the great service of passing this in-
troduction along to the rank and file
of the people of Texas.
Realizing that the Teachers Col-
leges form the largest educational
unit of the whole system of educa-
tion in the state, the “News” has set
about to do its part to call this fact
to the attenion of the citizens of the
state. The “News” has assigned the
work to one of the most able and in-
fluential members of its staff.
Mr. Thornton has been in newspa-
per Work for a number of years, cov-
ering especially the news of the State
Capital. Perhaps no man in Texas is
better acquainted, to start with, than
is Mr. Thornton with all departments
of the state government.
President Evans accompanied Mr.
Thornton on a tour of inspection of
the entire college plant. Mr. Thorn-
ton visited the General Assembly, and
a group of faculty members enter-
tained him at luncheon in the Tea
Room of the Cafeteria at noon. Mr.
Thornton expressed himself as being
well pleased with the College as a
whole, and the treatment accorded him
on his visit here.
President Comments on
Visit of Representative
Says Teachers College/' Are Due
Recognition Because of Their
In the General Assembly of Thurs-
day, October 11, President Evans
commented upon the visit of the Dal-
las News representative, as follows:
“The Texas State Teachers Colleges
now represent the largest college en-
rollment of any branch of the state
institutions of higher learning. With-
in the last ten years, the Teachers
Colleges have moved rapidly upward
in standards, numbers in faculty, en-
rollment, and equipment. For il-
lustration, the Southwest Texas State
Teachers College in May of the pres-
ent year, at a special exercise in the
General Assembly, celebrated an en-
rollment of college students four
times as great as nine years ago on
the same date. Starting out with
graduating classes of one, two, or
three members, the College conferred
130 degrees during the session of
1927-28. We now rank among only
seven of the senior colleges of the
state enrolling more than three thous-
and college students in an annual ses-
sion. The College has a standard fac-
ulty, a standard course of study, and
confers a standard degree. Its work
stands well in associations of college
people anywhere. The quality of stu-
dents and the quality of effort on the
part of students have made possible
the progress of recent years.”
The agitator: “Now, think hard,
men—we must have a reason for go-
ing on this strike.”
It is just as well to remember that
old flames are apt to flare up when
they are turned down.

Miss Mattie Allison, Miss Mary C.
Brogdon, Miss Irma L. Bruce, Mrs. J.
R. Buckner, Miss Elizabeth Falls,
Miss Alma Lenders, Miss Edna Mc-
Cormick, Miss Brenta McGregor, Mrs.
Ohren Patterson, Mrs. J. Lloyd Read,
and Mrs. J. R. Wilhelm.
The purpose of this meeting was
to create a spirit of friendly fel-
lowship among the neighboring
branches and to arouse a greater in-
terest in the work of the A.A.U.W.
Plans for the year’s work were dis-
cussed informally by the presidents
of the different organizations. The
possibility of different branches send-
ing representatives to State Conven-
tion at Amarillo the last of October
aftd to the National Convention at
New Orleans in April was discussed.

sity Women will meet the fourth Wed-
nesday in this month, October 24, at

Friday night in the “T” room of
the College Cafeteria a jolly group
of Y girls and freshmen girls gath-
ered for dinner. The freshmen girls
were students who have been Girl
Reserves in their respective high
schools and for that rason are es-
pecially interested in the “Y” work.,
Both the table decorations and place
cards carried out the color scheme of
the Y.W.C.A. Throughout the eve-
ning songs and laughter rang true
to the spirit of the “Y” girls. Verlin
Wiedeman, president of the Y.W.C.A.,
gave a cordial welcome to the Girl
Reserves. Dorothy Holland and
Elaine Smith, representing the guests,
responded gratefully thanking their
hostesses for the lovely entertainment.
Miss Jackson, in her usual creditable
manner, gave an inspiring talk in-
viting the Girl Reserves into the “Y”
work. Preceding this, several read-
ings were given. The evening’s en-
tertainment terminated with the sing-
ing of “Follow the Gleam”, the Y.W.
C.A. song. According to all of the
thirty girls who enjoyed the dinner,
the evening was voted entirely suc-
cessful and profitable in many ways.
BEGINS ON GYM
Gymnasium to be Lengthened 45 Feet
The construction going on at the
mens’ gymnasium is for the purpose
of effecting a 45-foot extension on the
west side of the building. At present
the work consists mainly in the level-
ing of ground for the purpose of lay-
ing the foundation for the addition.
.Space gained by this improvement
will be used for a new ten-foot of-
fice, handball courts, and an incin-
erator to dispose of old clothes left
in the gymnasium.
The most noteworthy improvement
is the new trussless roof that will
cover the building when it is finished.
This is a modern feature in gym con-
struction, and will be of great value
to the students in that it will allow
clear vision of all games.
These improvements are to be in-
stalled and builded at a cost of ap-
proximately $5,000, according to J. A.
Clayton, who is in charge of the con-
struction. The work is to be com-
pleted by the beginning of the win-
ter term, if possible.
Stevens, fullback, circled right end for
eight yards, then scored on a wide
left-end run. * Smith kicked goal.

The feature play of the game oc-
curred in the third quarter when
Keyes, shifty young back, returned a
punt 65 yards through a broken field
for Abilene’s second touchdown. Stev-
ens circled end for the extra point.
Score at the end of the third quar-
ter: Abilene 14, Bobcats 0.
Robinson intercepted a pass on the
Bobcats’ 33 yard line to pave the way
for the third, and final, score. Robin-
son, Roland, and Stevens steadily ad-
vanced the ball' on plays through the
weakened Bobcat line. A pass, Keyes
to Pippeh, placed the ball on the one-
yard line. First down, goal to go.
The Bobcat defense stiffened, and
three fine-smashes went for naught,
but on the fourth' attempt the Wild-
cats pulled the unexpected as Stev-
ens circled his left end for the touch-
down. The try- for extra point failed.
The Bobcats played a much better
game than the score indicates. In-
juries proved ' a hindrance to them.
