Eighty easy, the Vessel should

Bull, according to Webster, that
peer of men—the only one who has
ever had the last word—is the male
of any species of the genius Bos.
Mr. Webster defined the word very
concisely, but since that worthy
man’s time, the meaning of the
word has increased ad infinitum.
In the good old days there was a
limited number of ways to define
the word, but at present a bull
may be described by almost any
prefix or adjective that comes to
mind. It may be described as
were the rats in the “Pied Piper”,
or with all the gusto and variety
employed by Sam Clemens in his
most vivacious moments.
To show the extensive use of the
word a few of the better known
bulls will be led forward and dis-
played. There are bull fights, and
fight-buller’s, market bulls, and
marketed bulls; papal bulls, Irish
bulls, and bulletins; Bull bats, bull
wheels, bull snakes, bull frogs, etc.;
bull baiters, bull slingers, bull ses-
sions, and bullets; John Bull, Sit-
ting Bull, and Bull Run.....not
to mention the line of “bulloney”
frequently resorted to by students
and professors alike.

[he Idyllic Literary Society en-
pined twenty-eight guests with
aridge party Thursday after-

green and white. There was

the highest card at her table,

The spirit of friendliness and
congeniality prevailed Friday af-
ternoon when the members of the
Philosophian Literary Society with
their sponsor, Miss Rider, and their
invited guests gathered around a
bonfire at Camp Rio Vista. Each
person was equipped with a long
fork and was expected to roast
her own weenies, broil her own
bacon, and toast her own marsh-
mallows. There were great sup-
plies of buns, pickles, mustard,
potato chips, and bananas to ac-
company the weenies, bacon, and
marshmallow. The chilling wind
and damp ground only made the
bonfire more inviting and cheerful.
The Allie Evans
The Allie Evans Society is the
youngest on the hill and, like all
young things, has attracted much
attention. Its purpose is to fos-
ter a spirit of friendship on the
campus, to acquaint the members
with Texas lore and legend, and
to promote ideals of literary cul-
Among its reminiscences are the
annual week end trips to Wimber-
ley, the entertaining of the Harris-
Blairs, and a trip to San Antonio
as the guest of Colonel Castle. Its
activities for this term are a hike
and weenie roast, and a party hav-
ing as its guests a number of new
Due to the absence of the presi-
dent elected in the spring term,
a new president has been elected,
namely, Dolores Ebert. Other of-
ficers are: Loise Watson, secreatry,
and Ellen B. Traylor, treasurer. The
other officers will be filled at the
next business meeting of the club.
With the prospective members in
view, the club is looking forward to
a very successful year.
Allie Evans Hike
Just as the last rays of the set-
ting sun were casting the shadows
of our Alma Mater across the
landscape Thursday evening, a
sound of voices was heard descend-
ing from the hills at the head of the
river. This gay aria was none
other than that of the Allie Evans
girls and their guests returning
from a hike.
And what a hike! After climb-
ing up the stony paths which me-
ander among the profusion of
bushes and cactus, everyone was
anxiously awaiting his sip of crys-
tal clear nectar from the thermos
jug. After the freshmen among
the crowd had a blazing fire kindl-
ed, and the sophomores were wiping
the lemon juice out of their eyes,
everyone was ready to replenish
herself from the deliciously filled
plates. Acquaintance games and
songs completed the program, and
everyone agreed she had never had
a better time on a hike.
The Shakespeare society enter-
tained Saturday afternoon, Sep-
tember 27, with a bridge party at'
the home of Mrs. Laura Parke on
San Antonio street. The club’s
colors of purple and gold were clev-
erly carried out in the decorations;
purple and gold zinnias, goldenrod
and jack beans. High score was
won by Mary Elizabeth Richards,
who was presented with a lovely
purple and gold powder jar. A
salad course was served to the fol-
lowing: Edith Cartwright, Betsy

The “Acquaintance Teas” given
by the Y last week have added a
large list of new acquaintances to
the old Y girls, as well as fostered
a more friendly attitude among the

The “big and little sister” move-

of the little sisters are anxious to
know what their big sister looks
like. All big sisters who have not
called on your little sisters should
do so as soon as possible, for they
may be needing your aid. Any
freshmen girls not having a big
sister and desiring one, may re
port to Miss Hornung, Adeline
