RETURN TO THE OLD ORDER
Traditions have made of Simmons university a place where peo-
ple of every type are welcome and where school spirit reigns su-
preme. One of the old traditions that seems to be growing weaker
is that of friendliness and regard for all toward the other students
no matter what cfass or crowd they are in.
the tendency of late has been for the students to divide them-
selves into small groups and refuse to associate or speak to those
not included in the good graces of the group. There have even been
organized social cliques which have attempted to dictate the social
and political policies of the school and its activities. Students are
drifting from the close bond that formerly held them together into
the channel of snobishness and egotism. No doubt this deplorable
change in student life on and off the campus has come about thru
accidcnWor lack of understanding of just what should and should
not be done along this line. Yet nothing is being visibly done to
remedy the situation.
Simmons stands first and last for a free democratic student
body that is free to do as it chooses as long as the activities conform
with the principles for which the institution was founded. There
should be no place here for that boy or girl who has the idea that
he or she will "rule or ruin." The time has arrived when we must
make a decided departure from the present order of things in order
that Simmons may again hold its head high as the leader of student
democracy and fellowship in the Southwest. Just what is needed we
do not know butw whatever is feasible and possible should be done
at once before it is too late. Get away from dictatorship and aloof-
ness and rejoin the ranks of friendly democratic students who grow
mentally and spiritually greater through association with others.
We must act now or suffer the consequences in years to come.
j There are three types of male parents: those respectfully called
father those disrespectfully dubbed "the old man" and those af-
fectionately called dad. The word mother has no satisfactory sub-
stitutes but the term father could not possibly be as fraught with
tenderness and feeling as "dad-"
The diminutive "daddy" is sweet in childhood but its successor
"dad" is more meaningful. The former signifies childish adoration
and trust; the latter adult comradship and understanding.
Perhaps our dad is a mild little man wearing overalls and carry-
ing a tin lunch pail in order to send us to sqhool. Perhaps he's u
big blustering cheerful soul. Perhaps he's a tender teasing parent.
No matter. He's not "the. old man he's our dad. And we love
him. We must tell him so. He doesn't expect to be remembered
probably but he'd never forget a dad's day letter from us.
Perhaps our dad has passed beyond the scope of earthly gifts.
This being true we can but recall the sweetness he was responsible
for and we can have a little commemoration service in our hearts.
BEER AND THE
Continued repeal of the eighteenth amendment in many of the
states of the Union hks caused men and women to begin to wonder
just what is to be the ultimate result of the flow of beer upon the
average college student.
Parents are trying to forget the time when their boy or girl
will go away to school where he or she may secure the bubbling
fluid. In a census recently taken in several of the large eastern
colleges at least 75 per cent of the Student bodies of the institutions
voted no when asked if they would make a regular habit of drinking
beer when and if it returns. This fact which proved revolutionary
to many of the repeal advocates only goes to show that college men
and women arc still able to speak their convictions even in the face
of popular disapproval.
Out of the large number of athletic leaders who have been quiz-
zed as to whether or not they will allow their teams to indulge in
light wines and beer only a few have answered in the affirmative.
Practically all xpressed the opinion that stricter training than ever
would be expected of each player.
The repeal of the eighteenth amendment then will not material-
ly affect the college students of America.
Observers will soon have the pleasure of viewing the unique
gift of the Senior Class of '33 which will be a tennis court. The
gift varies from the usual tpye of tennis courts in that it $ to be
a green color thus causing the glare of the sun to be lessened.
The seniors are doing a very nice thing by adding another court
to the three already on the campus because those of us who are
soon to be exes will have more chance to get a court to play on while
waiting for the depression to lift
The seniors have chosen a splendid gift to the school of their
choice in that the tennis court is a gift which will serve the school
through many years to come and at the same time perpetuate the
memory of the class of 1933 (that is if they can raise the money).
Nothing so pleases a class as to know that it is remembered. In the
years to come when the members of the class of '33 return to their
Alma Mater there will burn within them a sense of pride when they
behold the spacious campus of the institution whose attractiveness
