Tho most important thing nbout tho
slime enp is tho smnllcst part of it;
tho button. Without tho button many
of tho rites of Freshman Year would
automatically bo eliminated. For in-
stance tho formality of "getting tho
button" would perforce ccaso to ex
ist. And then of course thcro is tho
matter of putting the HSU on it.
Tho changing of. tho name of tho
school added nn unexpected obstnelo
in the matter of the button. Under
the old form a mere S was plncod on
the button with due litcs and rituals
and the whole matter was very sim
ple but with the now name difficul-
ties arose. After much discussion it
was decided that tho best solution
would be to make a largo "S" on tho
button with a smaller "II" and "U"
in tho curves of tho S. The attending
ceicmonlcs havo not been altered.
At noon Tuesday there had been
fonie 160 of tho nps sold and thus
150 freshmen became eligible for for-
mal welcome to Hardin-Simmons uni-
versity by tho upper classmen. Pow-
er end endurance to tho freshnfen;
they'll need it.
