Interscholastlo League Draws
Larger Crowd Than was Expected
(Continued from page one.)
evening the Indoor court was surround
ed by a lively crowd.
In the opening addresses of. -welcome
the spirit of the League to de-
velop better and moro all-round men
and women was voiced by each
speaker. Director General Supt R
D. Green of the Abilene public schools
introduced Mr. Speck of Abilene
Christian Collego as tho first speaker.
Mr. Speck after welcoming tho repre-
sentatives to Abilene and her Col-
leges said "It Is my observation that
tho student who takeB part in the var-
ious school actlvitie's will become a
Citizen. There are two great gos-
pels of activity in the world. Give
mo and Make me." Tho Bplrit of this
gathering Is 'Make me'. Make mo
fit for greater leadership. Any old
thing can go to bed but it takes a
man to get-up
director Cireon (introdued Pnejsl-
den't Sandefer'of Simmons College
who said that where-so-ever the spirit
of Simmons College Abilene Christ-
ian dollege and b'len make Us self
know the"p(oijle knew thijt they w$r$
welcomo to Abilene and her schools.
Extracts from his address follow:
"After this awful war there will be a
premium placed upon physical train-
ing and a good physique as never be-
fore. Questions will arise which will
challenge tho greatest athletes upon
earth. Following tho war there Is go-
ing to bo a type of emphasis placed
upon Intellectual ability nover known
before in tho history of tho world.
A reaction is going to 'follow from
the lack of religious culture which
will call for tho highest type of pub-
lic school teachers such that when
these teachers turn students out into
tho world they will not bo imbued
with ideals like those of the Germans."
Supt. J. H. Bright of Sweetwater
not being present Mr. Green called
dpon Supt McGlamery" of Haskell.
Mr. McGlamery after expressing
thanks In behalf of the League for the
welcome said; 'The public schools aro
realizing more' and more that it takes
a man or woman of talent and abili-
ty to measure up to the present day
standards. The work of the U. I. L.
is giving to. the boys and glrla a new
yty'w ot 111$."
GREAT LAKES 111. Camp Dewey
Building 204 April 13. Dear Mr. An-
derson: As usual there in so much to
tell you that I do not know whero
to begin. Hflwovor I will try to toll
you a little of it all.
You see now I can wrlto you on a
typewriter as I have a somewhat bet-
tor place than I had tho last time I
wroto. I am glad that I got trans-
ferred out of radio Into tho disbursing
department. Radio la all right for thoso
who want It and liko it but as I never
expect to bo an operator In civil life
(when tho war Is over) I decided It
would bo better for mo while In tho
navy to work at that trade which would
hotter mo for civil llfo. In this de-
partment I can keep In practice on tho
typewriter and learn much which
would bettor mo for newspaper vork
should I go back to that after tho
war and I prefer that to anything olso
slnco It Is such an Interesting vork.
Also In thjp department I think thoro
Is better chance for rapid advance
I am having tho easiest time I ovor
had in my llfo and am enjoying llfo
every day. The men that I work un
der aro flno follows and troat mo good.
Wo can got everything wo want hero
at tho very cheapest prices. Tho total
cost of two laundry days a week ro-
gardlesB of tho numbor of pieces is
only thirteen cents. That is only fif
ty-two cents a month no matter how
Ono of the best and prettiest dis-
plays in the navy is to soo tho respect
paid to "Old Glory" at all times. Thoro
aro three or four tall flag poles hero
on tho station whero "colors" core-
mony is porformed twice every day
right after sunrise and at sunset. In
tho evening when tho working parties
aro through with their day s labor
when tho sun is beautifully sotting in
tho west when many Jackios aro soon
on tho streets of tho station oomo
playing "catch" others walking about
then when down at tho end of tho big
drill field or over in Camp Paul Jones
or Camp Dowoy when tho band starts
playing "Tho Star Bpanglod Bannor"
and tho flag of freedom begins to low-
or from the polo wo realizo most just
why wo are hero Tho mlnuto tho
band starts just as far as ono can soo
ovory sailor is motionloss. Down near
tho big coal pile is a Jackie standing
next to' hlB motionless hugo auto
truck down on tho corner is a Jacklo
messenger standing with his bicycle" on
tho ground at his side thoso playing
"catch" haya ceased thoso 'walking
horo and thoro aro standing still and
all aro standing at saluto with their
faces turned toward tho flag and tho
music. During tho briof ceremony of
colors If thore should happen to bo any
of tho sailors in rank for any purposo
tho commander In charge glvos the
command. "ComDany. halt!." and that Is
all that la necessary. Tho entire qom-
nanv immediately stands at attention
facing the music no mattor how dis
tant It is. it Is at suqn penoaa as
theBe that we aro gladost that wo are
.American citizens and that wo aro uy-
in under n. flatr that autocracy can
not trample on a flag which Is backed
by a hundred raUUaa ople either Jn
actual mon or money in liberty bonds
and tho liko
I wont to Chicago again last Sun-
day and took in a few moro of tho
sights. This timo I went on tho olec
trio train tho North Shoro line which
is sometimos spokon of as tho air
lino slnco it is tho olovatcd road. It
Is thirty-fivo milos to tho center of
Chicago and this railroad is olevatod
most of tho way right through tho
main business streets of tho city. It
is somo Bight to sco four tracks kept
busy all tho timo all tracks boing
in tho samo Btrcot two overhead and
two below Tho olcctrlc runs from
ono to four cars to tho train and runs
ovor thirty fast passenger trains
through Groat Lakes ovory day. Be
tween horo and "Chi" wo rldo hlghor
than tho houso tops most of tho time
oxcopt whoro tho houses aro too high.
Between horo and Chicago thoro aro
thousands of big apartment houses
from thrco to ton stories high and
oach houso covors anywhoro from ono
lot to n block of ground. It looks
funny to look up and soo back yards
bo far from tho earth with clothes
hanging on tho lino etc. and nowhoro
for tho children to may oxcopt in a
small yard in tho air.
Aftor Booing another splendid Bhow
'Some Llttlo Girl" witnessed by about
2500 Jackios. and all free I wont to
a social given by tho Cordon Club
which is a girls club mado up of flno
arts students. Tho party was given
on tho sovonth floor of tho Fine Arts
Building and about forty of us Jacklcs
cortalnly had a good timo. Wo play-
ed gamos onjoyed a program relished
a spicnuiu supper vor ainnor wniu-
ovcr you call it) and wo had all th6
ice croam cake and candy that wo
could diBposo of and thoro waB somo
to sparo. Every Saturday and Sunday
scores&of just such clubs ontortaln
sailorvftco of charge and thoro aro
plonty or pretty girls. At these func-
tions nobody Is introduced. All aro
tagged with their names on tho tags.
I. do not rcmembor tho namo of a
singlo person who was thero last Sun-
day didn't oven know a singlo Jacklo
who was thero. But wo all had a
good timo just tho same Everybody
acts Just liko ho was "at homo" and
that ho knows everybody oIbo present.
I am going to Chicago again tomor-
row to see "Billeted" and also to
All tho money that it takes to got
by on up horo 1b street car fare and
a llttlo for stampo so as to write bome
and toll tho folks what wo saw. Wo
got all kinds of entertainment and
eats freo of charge.
While in "Chi" last Sunday I took
a notion to go up on ono of tho sky-
scrapers and see what I could sco.
I picked out ono twenty-four stories
high and thought maybo I could soo
as far as Texas on that ono. But to
my disappointment when I reached tho
top and strained my eyes and neck I
couldn't oven see tho limits of tho bus
iness districts. As far as sight per-
mitted all I could seo wore tall bus-
iness bulldingB except In ono direc-
tion and that was nothing but water
Am enclosing a copy ot tho Great
Lakes Bulletin containing tho articlo
about Secretary Daniel's visit to the
station and his praiso of tho "Great-
est Naval Station in Tho -World." "Tho
best mon of tho fleet como from Great
Lakes" was ono of his remarks.
I could wrlto moro but as you want
to wrlto another editorial or read a
nrnnf on Nuxated Iron or perhaps a
porsonal I will closo for tho timo bo
