Sinco I have been on tins campus not quite a
ycar.I have been appalled by the antagonistic at-
titude of the students and in particular a certain
group of students who pay nothing at nil for their
education. This small group of students contribute
nothing to the school but ralhcr tend to detcnutc
the morale of the other students and hence the
A certain amount of "gripping" is nil right but
only if it is based on logic and the "grippcrs" arc
m a position to do it. In this case however it is
like tlic spoiled ciuid who having been given a
piece of cake cries for the rest of it.
In case there is any doubt in your minds I am
referring to the cafeteria "hounds." I doubt if
any of us have as good meals at home over a per-
iod of a year as we do on the campus. Maybe it
could be served a little more daintily but when so
many people arc served at each meal it is rather
hard to serve everyone of the meals as if it were

A COMMENDABLE PERFORMANCE
Ilnrdin-Simmons rangy basketball players put
away their uniforms Inst week until another win-
ter rolls around.
This simple statement covers much territory. In
reality it means a lull for quite a while in an ad-
mirable sport. But especially does it mean that
your university is "up and coming" in all fields
Many of the sideline fans never really realized
the degree of proficiency possessed by the 1937
Ranching quintet. Early in the season the Cowboy
courtmen handily defeated Southern Methodist uni-
versity in a two-game series. The Mustangs ended
up the year by copping the Southwest conference
Only one defeat in an entire season is an admir-
able season record on anybody's books. The Pur-
plo and Gold's current season performance was
still more so in view of the fact that their one loss
was to an independent quintet composed of grad-
uates and former college stars.
Cleverness capability poise and many hours of
tiring practice were necessary factors in hanging
up the record.
The entire squad is to be-vcomniended for turn-
ing in a season characterized entirely by fair play
honest cnde.avor and interest-laden activity.
Hardin-Simmons' 1937 cagehands are not ask
ing for a single word of praise. This editorial was'
not written with the intention of persuading you
to start an epidemic of back-slapping.
We're only proud . . . and "jest braggin'."
DEATH ON THE HIGHWAY
1 FraDinni College Piress
Courtesy Ncws-Engrnvlng Co.
Yearly the death toll mounts from automobile
accidents. In 1931 there were 31000 deaths; in
1933 35500; in 1934 36101; and in 1936 36400
Mere killed on the streets highways and bi-ways
of the United States regardless of the nation-wide
campaign for safety!
"What is to bo the ultimate solution of this in-
human murder ? Shall we give up our automobiles T
Never! But where to then?
True some accidents arc unavoidable but the
fact remains that many accidents could be pre-
vented if drivers and pedestrians would use REA-
SONABLE care. Good brakes good tires and n
careful observance of all traffic laws will prevent I
thousands of these needless deaths. So why not
Alcohol education should have reached a mature
state in a school of this sort as it should have in
colleges everywhere. Emphasis on the evils of
liquor has been especially brought to bear litera-
ture has been placed in the student's hand ever
since he could read and the drastic consequences
have been pointed out- ever since he can remember.
Has this temperance education been lost on deaf
An article in the "International Student" af-
firms that the consumption of intoxicants as well
as the alcohol contained in the beverages lias never
mounted so rapidly in the past hundred years of
the history of the United States as it has during
the three years of the re-legalized liquor trade the
article also states that at no time in the memory
of most of us has there been such indifference to
the beverage liquor traffic's program of sales pro-
motion business intimidation and growing politi-
cal influence as at present.
In the opinion of Horace Mann distinguished
educational leader the elue lies in the fact that
merely teaching the facts about uleohol or cap
turing names on the dotted lines ot abstinence
pledges will not solve the temperance question any
more than human liberty and freedom may be ob
tained by putting a copy of the Declaration ot
Independence in the hand of every citizen;
"Character rather than words life itself not
printer's ink is the essential argument on behulf
of a truth that is seeking to win the support of
mankind" asserts Horace Mann.
Personal influence has a great deal to do with
attitudes toward alcoholic beverages. A Christian
college and Christian students may do much to
spread temperance education if only in the com-
munity in which it is located. At least may it be
hoped that the statistician will be able to truth-
fully publish his figures stating that there is less
drinking among students of a so-called Christian
institution than of any other.

Well perhaps the most outstanding news
"break" in the entire United States oecurcd this
week when the boiler in a consolidated rural school
in East Texas blew up. Naturally this will not be
fresh news when you get to read it but such an in-
cident cannot be missed without mention. The
entire nation is deeply grieved over such a tragedy
and sincerest tribute is paid to those valiant work
crs that officiated at the rescue.
Now for some of our campus news. The tennis
stars of H.-S. U. journey to Austin this next week
for the Southwest Tennis Tournament. . . . Just
off the campus the Corral cafe is undergoing some
serious changes. . . . Mr. "Walker is slightly going
modern and is also enlarging his place to accom-
modate increasing patrons.
Mrs. Cyril von Baumann former Cowboy stu-
dent has sailed from New York to accompany her
husband on an expedition into jungles of tliema-

It's just a chair. And an old chnlr
nt that. But If the power of speech
could bo given it harrowing indeed
nre the talcs it could tell. It's cover
is frayed from the many string pull
ing exhibitions of bashful Romeos;
it's seat worn from tho nervous wig-
gling of these snmo bashful Romeos.
On it's back aro two black greasy
spots suggesting the fact that two
heads have reclined in happy ecstasy.
It's springs rendering a resigned
screech scorn to say to tho world at
large: "You may be Mother's dimpled
darling but you're just another ro-
tound love affair to me."
Pushed into n corner like n poor
misunderstood step-child this long-
suffering old chair has cradled in its
forever opened arms all of the gay
caballeros nnd coy coquettes of mod-
ern campus history and never a se-
cret has it betrayed.

A rarity she Is naive naif 'and
Her freshness naturalness nnd

smiles her whole face lights up thus

Leadership is instilled In her

unaffected mannerisms she leads
the pack. She has not developed
enough to feel confident of lead-
ing everyone and If not careful

dinating uncquals thus wasting
power that could be taped. If she
gets to feeling too satisfied with
her present lot she may fall be-
cause everyone grows and she
must grow with them especially
now that she is leading.
All men liko her because she can
be a pal or sweetheart if she desires
it. They know that she is cool and
capable nnd can handle every situa-
tion. Women ns a rule dislike her
because of envy and jealousy created
when they can't override her.
Her main trouble is that she
gives others too much credit for
brains. Trivial happenings pro-
voke her to thought when they
rcallv mean nothing. Power that
comes from winning a conquest
is enjoyed more than the achieve-
ment. Thinking of people only
as they affect her Is a weakness.
