HOW BIG IS A MAN 7
A single individual is very insjg-
niAeant. He is just one of several
bilHoB of the samo living genus.
What a tremendous competitive force
for the person who desires to be groat
apeag nta fellows I Truly -a man
who forges to the front and impresses
himself indelibly on tho minds of his
present living companions has done a
stapendouB task. But think of the
'aamberlees billions who have gone be-
fore and shall come after wo have
fulfilled our time. He who seeks to
perpetuate his name throughout the
annals of history chooses a task the
attaining of which requires Hcculean
Unity is weak. The combination of
numbers tends toward strength. One
laalvidaal is unimportant weak of
slight value. Greatness and strength
are found in groups of several indi
viduals. The greater the number of
Individuals the greater will be the
strength and more influential tho
greatness thereof. The greatness of
a group canoe no measured by a
single individual of that group. A
single one of our revered forefathers
.did not build this nation. It tons
built by the cooperative effort of a
multitude. Nor can it be said that
honesty alone was the guiding prin-
ciple in the founding of tho American
nation though it was regarded as an
essential element it was the com
bination of those several virtues
which unite to form a perfect char-
acter that were held rigidly In the
minds of our forebears.
How big is a man? And unto
1 what greatness is it possible for him
to attain? It has been noted that
a single individual is insignificant
and that in a group of individuals is
greatness vested a man is no
greater than the group whose servant
he makes himself. In other words
his greatness cannot exceed the great-
ness of the vgroup whose sorrows and
griefs he shares and whose worries
he bears. Was Moses greater than the
a people he led out of .Egypt? How can
Waahinton's greatness be measured
'except by the greatness and extent
of civilised .people struggling against
the" hand .of- oppression ? What other
answer' to the cause of his greatness
can be given other than that ho was
a servant of' those who were fighting
for freedom? Why did the English
people so love and honor Tennyson?
It was because he voiced their joys
- taelr sorrows and their troubles
J. Be answer as to how one may
attain unto greatness is obvious. It
k that one must banish all thoughts
of self and substitute therefor the
interests of humanity Or of a par
tfeular phase of the needs of human!
.ty as religious educational moral
physical material. Truej greatness
may be summed up in ono word
SERVICE and the degree to which
a man has determined to yield him'
if to the service of his fellows will
dssmmiae his greatness in the out-
Twcnty members of tho Tcnderfcet
football squad under tho direction of
Y. P. Kuhn and "Red" Mooro loft
Abilene early Friday morning in tho
band bus for Cisco where they met
tho Randolph College eleven in the
afternoon. The score was not avail
able for this editions of the Brand.
Randolph has a strong team for
the Tcnderfcet to meet rating only
about three touchdowns weaker than
McMurry and they will bo hard for
the would-be Cowboys to overcome.
However this aggregation hasn't lost
a gamo in over three years and they
intend to keep tho record clean.
The Tcnderfect have won two
games this year defeating tho Ran
ger and Winters high school elevens
Monte Carlo is a scene of rejoicing.
Why? Because of that eventful Nov.
11 when tho Cowboys beat Trinty
and tho Armistice was signed! Of
course the house was practically de-
serted Wednesday. Some went on the
Band Bus somo the famous Avalan-
che and Some in Leo Stulce's Frank

ten years younger.

The writer wandered oil irom tho
gang in Fort Worth Wednesday night
wearing tho cowboy uniform. A
ranchman from Arizona who was on
business in the Cowtown accosted
him and inquired -"What outfit are

"Tho S. U. outfit by Gosh."
"Don't believe I ever heard of that

COMANCHE WINS FROM

Coach TCuhn left at 10 o'clock Wed.
nesday morning to act as referee for
the third annual iBrownwood-Com
ancho football game held on Armistice
Day at Comanche. Comanche won
the game by a score of 7-6.
Football fans are numerous in that
vicinity and the interest runs at high
tension. According to Coach Kuhn
4000 spectators witnessed the game of
last year. The grandstand and
bleachers were filled and practically
all standing room was taken. 'A largo
crowd saw Wednesday's game.
A very pretty demonstration has
been staged each year by the Ameri-
can Legion Band and the girls of
Comanche High School pep squad.
The band played an Indian song while
the girls of the pep squad dressed in
Indian maid costume made a snako
dance on the field.

What wo know about women a sub
ject undeterminato in scope unlath-
oinable in meaning a subject for the
goas to "mako rumors aDout and for
man to shun conscientiously yet is a
subject which deserves consideration
In this column.
First let mo confess that Wo (1
mean men) know overwhelmingly
little about women and yet that tact
represents one of the greatest Incon-
gruities of the age. Man has ob
served woman for C00O years. Ho
has observed her actions and her
manners from every point of view.
At first he was her master then her
companion later her j servant and
finally her slave. Wo do not know
what turn matters will take next
but if tho times keep changing tho
Lord will have to create another being
to take the placo that woman has
deserted and man will havo to bo
cdntcnt with being tho eternal tail-
light of humanity.
What wo know about women?
Well thru tho ages wo havo learned
that there are two kinds of women
the fashionable one and thoso who
aro comfortable. Wo havo learned
that woman's word is 'tho last word.
We havo learned that woman's field
of endeavor is limited only by her
imagination and 'her imagination has
no end. Today wo havo female rep-
resentatives in overy enterprise. To-
day the best governor in Texas is a
Yes women are doing great things.
Modern business modern science
modern artcall for tho greatest minds
and just as big men aro honored and
given a place in the sun so aro big
women given a place in tho sun yet
when a perfect 3G passes down the
street tho big ones are forgotten.
Their place in the sun is eclipsed by
smaller bodies the stars of a more
And nbout these lesser stars these
flappers that wing their way into the
hearts and pocketbooks of unsus-
pecting man? Are they with their
bobbed hair and rolled socks less
saintly than their ancestors? Well
we stop to wonder and with 4 guilty
conscience we often think as wo as-
cend tho steps of "Smith" or "Mary
Frances" Fools rush in where women
And after all what wo know about
women is as a grain of sand upon the
desert as a drop of water in the
ocean as a Freshman's knowledge of
tho whiches of what.
Trinity Tigers sure were mean to
handle but with that Simmons spirit
behind them and with the T. I. A. JV.
championship ahead of them those
Cowboys could ropo and tie any tiger
that ever roamed an athletic jungle.

The first and only application from
an African student for admission to
Simmons University came in the form
of a letter from Ajoa Junior an
African of tho Baptist College and
Seminary located at Oyo Uigeria to
the bursar of this institution early
The contents of tho letter stato that
Mr. Junior was born January 4 1900
in tho town lof Ogbomoshaw! He
started to school when he was twelve
years of age and was iralned by nn
undo who defrayed the major part
of his school expenses. lie completed
work in tho day school in less Than
five years then spent two nnd one-
half years in high school and three
years in the Baptist Collego and Sem
inary. His credits may be had from
Rev. George Washington Sadler prin-
cipal of the school He states that he
graduated from the Baptist School on
uccemDcr iu ium. ttis average
throughout his collego course was
92.0. He passed the third class
teachers' examination under tho gov
ernment code and ordinances of 1910
and was appointed to be tho head
teacher in tho Oyo Baptist School.
It is also confirmed by His letter that
he is a good athlete and likes ath-
letics very much.
Young Ajoa Junior was converted
and baptized by the missionary Dr.
George Green in theyear 1914 and
became a member of the Ijeru Baptist
Church. A family by the name of
Powell with whom he lives is trying
to help him in every possible way.
It was through the efforts a these
close friends that he completed work
for the diploma in Baptist Sunday
School work. '
The' writer of the letter states that
since ihe time of his school work he
has been thinking of the way in which
he might help his people along. He
came to the conclusion that he would
be of greatest help to them by having
a good and sound education; and this
is what indueed him to' write officials
