To oUr way of thinking there can
bo nothing better in a college than an
abundance of spirit and pep. Cojlego
spirit id nothing more than the unsel-
fish wholehearted support by every
student of everything that the college
might sot out upon. Never before
In. all of Simmons history has a vis-
iting athletic team met with such col-
lego support as did the Cpwboys lust
Friday when they met Denton Nor-
mal. Every player from Denton had
something to say about the spirif
and enthusiasm that was plainly
backing out team. Never according
to them had thoy before seen a team
backed from tho sideline as were tho
Cowboys. And that Is Just the way
that Simmons should mako every vis-
iting team feel that every student in
Simmons Is behind the Cowboy team
whether she bo the winner or the
loser. Therein can Simmons build up
a reputation that will win her stud-
ents and athletes sd that she will be-
come a power among tho colleges or.
Texas both in nthlotics and In literary
