Hon. J. D. Sandcfcr Prcs.
My Dear Mr. Sandcfcr:
In my mind the recent Sun' Bowl
( Carnival with its attended attrac-
tions was the biggest thing El Paso
has ever pulled off and to me per-
sonally I could think of no other sec-
tion or any other University which
would bring out tho crowds and the
cooperation as would tho University
of which you are tho great president.
El Paso is now looking forward to
next year hoping to repeat and if
possible excel what we have just suc-
ceeded in putting across and wo cer-
tainly want a goodly representation
from all cities in our territory.
Mr. A. N. Manker in this office
being a staunch Baptist was na-
tuually yelling his head off to seo
Hardin-Simmons win this ball game
but at that he and all of tho 12000
people who witnessed this contest felt
that it was one of the'best that it was
their privilege to see.
I shall certainly avail myself of tho
privilego of visiting you when tho
opportunity presents itself.
Assuring you again that El Paso
in general and I in particular ap-
preciate the sentiments expressed and
hoping that we may in tho future bo
able to repeat the action that prompted
such sentiments I remain
Very sincerely yours
Attn: Mr. G. B. Sandefcr.
On behalf of myself and the parado
committee of the great Southwestern
Sun Carnival Inc. please allow mo
to thank you from the bottom of our
hearts for having given us such ex-
cellent cooperation and such wonder-
ful music. Tho pep squad was great
.also and everyone enjoyed it tre-
mendously. You havo no idea how vital it was
to the success of the parado to have
ample and good music. Your band
conducted itself in an excellent man
ner and gave us a wonderful per
Thanking you again for having par
ticipatcd in this great event and trust
ing that we may continue this great
work to tho end that this glorious
Southwest of ours may take its much
deserved place in tho Sun of. which
wo so often speak. The whole parade
committee joins mo in wishing you
all a most happy New Year.

connected from scrimmage to give
the Raiders advantage and the ses-
sion waxed hot as the Cowhands vain-
ly attempted to overcomes tho lead.
McCollum's field goal in tho first
30 seconds launched the second frame
and Wilkerson retaliated for Tech
with another two-pointer. It was at
this point however that Billy Har-
ris got hot for the Cowmen. In tho
next four minutes he rang up two
successive field goals to tic the count
at 20 all while Glover looped ono to
put the locals out ahead. But Tech
came fighting back and with a field
goal and a gratis pitch went ahead
With five minutes yet to play tho
score stood H.-S. U. 27 Tech 26. Glov-
er annexed another one under tho bas-
ket to increase the slight Cowboy lead
but Snodgrass again whittled the mar-
gin with a long shot from the field.
Soon afterward Snodgrass was sent
from the game on personal fouls tho
final one against Benson who regis-
tered both free pitches. With three
minutes remaining Case scored from
the field to bring his team up within
threo points of the Cowboys who at
this point 'proceeded to pull an elab-
orate stall and passing gamo And
practically concluded tho scoring for
tho evening. Glover however drop-
ped in a final go'al for the locals be-
fore Morris concluded the scoring for
the game with a free toss in tho last
No one member of tho Ranching
quintet was singularly outstanding.
Scoring was almost equally divided
with all five starters playing jam-up
ball all the way. Garrett and Wil-
kerson stood out at forward and cen-
ter for the visitors but it was Snod-
grass whoso unethical tactics repeat-
edly raised tho ire of tho crowd.
Other than tho times hisJ'walklng"

ably tho most valuable man on tho

DR. MOORE ATTENDS
B. T. U. CONVENTION

climaxed by tw0 stirring addresses
made by Kagawa of Kobe Japan.
Somo eight or ten thousand people
heard tho addresses mndo by tho fa-
mous Japanese who is designated ns
"tho world's greatest Christian."
Probably tho most interesting and in-
spiring fivo minuto speaker was a
little wisp of a Japanese girl from
tho Hawaiian Islands now attending
school in Dodd collrge.
Dr. and Mrs. Mooro visited his par-
ents en routo to tho convention and
visited severnl points of interest on
their return trip.
A throaty amateur tenor ended a
prolonged vocal effort on a radio pro-
gram which did not give tho gong to
sour singers with "An for Bonnio

An exasperated master of cere-
monies jumped to tho offer nnd scan-
ning tho studio audience asked:
"Is Miss Annio Laurie present?"
