"Aa ye sow so shall yo renp" mny be un old
and trite proverb yet it seems to apply to a great
number of different phases of life even today. Es-
pecially docs it hit the nail on the head when used
with reference to studying.
"Remember the Alamol Remember Goliad I"
the battle cry of Texas independence shouted by
the small yet victorious group of loyal Tcxans
might never have been uttered had the much larger
Mexican army not been attacked when it was un-
prepared. Poor preparation has been the under-
lying factor for many bitter defeats.
New students are interested in getting into the
swing of activities at Ilardin-Simmons and old
students are glad to get back to the campus. The
easiest way for both to prepare for the examina-
tions that are scheduled later in the year is to
begin now. An expert swimmer uses constant and
positive strokes in a long race never attempting
to cover too much territory in too little time. Ilis
persistent effort means a conservation of strength
for the final dash in case extra effort is needed
for a good finish.
An excellent time to put in some valuable win-
ning strokes is now.
Do you want popularity!
If you are an average human being possessing
that inherent trait your answer will bo in the af-
firmative. Yes friendship among classmates is
preferable to a tortoise complex; students cannot
be popular if they live within ihcmselves.
All around you arc students who are capable
of loyal companionship. Therefore being friendly
with your fellow students is the first and foremost
step in gaining your much' desired popularity.
Perhaps they arc a bit timid so take it for granted
that is the case and make tho first move yourself.

If the entire student body will join in the spirit

WOMEN AND CHILDREN?
Since the outbreak of the Spanish war and par

has been shedding journalistic tears
about tiic killing of noncombatants especially
women and children. Day after day the front
pages have been filled with accounts of ruthless

but that the newspaper accounts are telling the

draw the line between combatants and noncombat-

work in the factories and till tho fields in order
that supplies may be sent to their men who arc
engaged in killing the sons and husbands of other
women much like themselves. The children play

be played according to a set of rules which are

Let's Get Acquainted
As we continue our tour of the of-
fices on the campus which will in-
terest both new and old students
alike the next step in the program
remains in the Science building al-
though this time we take a quick
run up to the third floor (by the way
of the left-hand stairs) and enter the
first door to the right. As one may
see the room is divided into two
pnits tho first division that we en-
ter is known as the employment bu-
reau headed by Lcm Paul Henslee
who has sincere interest in his work
and in helping all students who are
wanting to secure any nnd every type
of work in order to earn a little
spending money or earn enough to
pay room and board. This Employ-
ment Bureau which is comparatively
new having been organized only this
summer will be a great help to all
students as Henslee has included in
his files names of students their ex-
perience and any available refer-
ences. If an employer telephones
from downtown or for work to be
done in a residence the files are
quickly checked and the student that
has the best qualifications is sent on
tho job. In short this bureau serves
as a connection between the employee
and the employer and serves them
both to tho best advantage. Mildred
Isbill is the student assistant who
works in this office
In the next part of the room
Harry Hayes (with his assistants
Aileen Elliot Margaret Rowell and
Maurice King) has complete charge
of all field work. This includes in
the broadest sense of the term get-
ting students interested in coming to

"If thou canst believe all things
are possible to him that believeth."
Men have stood beside Niagara
Falls viewing the rushing of the
mighty torrents of water; and taking
into account the power already har-
nessed from that phenomenon have
called Niagara the greatest unused
power in all the world. One day Ni-
agara stopped frozen over.
Men have gazed into the immeasur-
able spaces above and contemplating
tho electrical power in the heavens
have attributed to those energies the
designation of the greatest unused
power but occasionally man's sky
harnasslng dynamos fall.
Men have from the shores of the
mighty ocean viewed the surging
churning tides comes in; and consid-
ering behind that tide the thousands
of miles of water stretching cross
half the world have said that those
seemingly uncapturable tides are the
world's greatest unused power.
These men are greater authori-
ties than I but were I to venture my
opinion of that greatest power I
would ascribe the title to the power
of faith in the God who one day
stopped Niagara who rules in the
heavens who set the worlds of the
universe in their places and keeps
them there by His power who spoke
and the waters covered the earth and
who might speak again and cause
them to vanish away. This power of
faith in my thinking has an undis-
putable right to the title of the
greatest unused power in the world.
Faith in God is potential dynamite
the life that is lived by faith is a dy-
namic life. . . . "Have faith in God."
We're often prone to nourish cares
To magnify our ills
Exaggerate misfortune's lot
Make mountains out of hills.
And oftentimes we think that fate
Has dealt an unfair blow;
We fancy that our own sad cares
Exceed our fellow's woe.
But do we ever stop to think
When troubled by our fate
There's always some one else whose
Exceeds our own in weight.
WITH YOU IN THE SOUTH

that all the old students of Hardin
Simmons are made welcome when
they return to their Alma Mater; and
makes sure that they receive invita-
tions to all programs and fiesta oc
casions that the school might have.
In line with this the Cowboy club
subscriptions are handled and sought
by Hayes. If the new students wish
to meet a genial personality and to
be made to feel at home they Bhould
by all means not. delay In visiting
Hayes and getting acquainted.
Now we are all through with the
upper-story of the Science building
and after coming back down the
stairs we turn to our right and enter
the first door to Dr. Otto Watts' of-
fice where he conducts business that
arises in connection with his labora-
tory or lecture work. Dr. Watts as
some of you might now know is pro-
fessor of chemistry. Assisting him
with his work as a stenographer is
Louie Faye Goldsmith.
Into the inner part of the room we
go next and meet Dr. Julius Olson
who is Dean of College of Art and
Science and to whom students are
responsible for class attendance. As
soon as you receive a slip from Dr.
Olsen's office (and we hope you
won't) you will know immediately
that the tide is up and those classes
you have been cutting had not forgot-
ten you. Dr. Olien also has charge
of evaluation of credits in connec-
tion with the registrar's office.
Since the writing of last week's ar-
ticle two more student assistants
have been added to help Dr. R. A.
Collins and Mrs. Emmett Landers in
the president's office. Oneita Spiers
is assisting with chapel excuses (no
bribing allowed) and Jean Christo-
pher is the new typist.
