HARDIN-SIMMONS. UNIVERSITY ABILENE TEXAS OCTOBER 20 1934
HSU COWBOYS HOLD BAYLOR BEARS TO 13-6
Good Mnwnlnl It flccms that some
of the students have the real Cowboy
spirit to such n extent that they are
changing the ole school into n real
ranch and drove ole Boss into I'rof.
Ford's private stable. Look out I It
may be the beginning" of the rc-orgnn-iiatlon
of the FortyNiners.
To start this week's list of names
come Mr. and Mrs. Scatter Winters
the captain of tho football team and
his wife. Of course it is mcro specu-
lation to say whether or not she loves
him but sho lives on his account.
Mildred and Iran arc even more
devoted this year than ever from all
indications and indications are plen-
tiful. Jast slip up behind some lone-
some car and sure enough there arc
the Bronco pilot and his Belle of
Mankins sitting quietly. Anyway it
is a pretty love story.
And another beautiful romance has
sprung up as unexpectedly as
(Shults and Kinard could not think
of an appropriate simile). The cou-
ple referred to in this paragraph is
Mildred Burnett and Carson Jordan.
Burnett has finally ensnared a vic-
for.oao. of the opposiue pex andiofuy
- one has been felt by two of Ute.freal?
'torn (la-the' good ole days it wag not
their heart that burned)... West and
Joyner arc both skilled in the art of
love and its making; and one of their
exhibitions would lay Cleopatra and
Estcs Burgamy in the shade.
There were heads and arms and legs
on the floor. There were pools of
blood staining the walls. Chairs and
tables desks were overturned. Win-
dow lights were shattered. Type-
writers flew through the air like
bombs. Three bystanders were killed
and several wounded. It looks like
a light to the finish is inevitable. We
refuse to predict the winner In the
fight of the columnists Haggard and
It was impossible to figure out a
non-censurable manner of expressing
this but ask Faye Morrison about the
break she made concerning a pair of
pajamas a rat and one big happy
family of mice.
Pratt's size 34 swoater tailor-made
for the flash from Pecos (sho pays

A conservative estimate reveals
that there were at least 10000 square
