Homecoming this yenr will be n lot of fun
for all. Tho campus will probably be flooded
with moro visitors than it has seen in a long
Quests will include alumni and probably a
lot of ex faculty members and prospective
students. Old friends will meet old friends
and evcryono will mako now friends.
Some of tho old friends of Hardin-Simmons
will feel a little strange in returning to tho
campus after an absence of so many years.
Tho place has changed a lot new buildings
now instructors now students and new ideas.
Let's try to make them feel at homo as quickly
As shown by past performances students
here need no urging to be friendly. Last week
when visiting West Texas Band members were
on tho campus we heard one remark that
Hardin-Simmons was the "friendliest campus"
ho had seen in a long time.
Just bear in mind during homecoming week
that a warm handshake or a friendly smile
will go a long way in making an ex feel he
has really come back to his own school. J. D.
On Practical flohal
Practical jokes arc childish but there is
nothing seriously wrong with them ns long as
they do not become a harmful nuisance. There
are always people who go too far.
Somo students take pleasure in destroying
the property of other people or in giving some-
one else a few miserable moments Or hours.
A week or so ago someone in Mary Frances
hall was feeling pretty good so she took some
powder from her room and sifted it up and
down the hall on the walls and floor. That
wasn't enough it seemed so she sprinkled a
lot of it with water until it became a gummy
It was a very funny joke.
"When the prank was discovered and report-
ed by somo girls the director told the maid
about it and asked her to clean it up. That was
Tho maid worked all morning and into' the
afternoon to get the hall back to normal. She
scarcely had time to attend to her other duties.
It was pretty hard work and when we talked
to her she didn't seem to appreciate the humor
of the joke. J. D.
Muck Ad Alout Motion?
If you want to see what rumor will do just
look at what happened to some innocent boys
who 'sold magazine subscriptions last week.
- It seemed only a matter of hours before
everyone was tolling evcryono elso that the
subscriptions were a fraud a fleecing scheme.
Tho "suckers" began canceling checks they
had written and police were notified.
All of which made it pretty rough on the
hard-working boys. It took a lot of handling
before the situation was straightened out. We
might take a lesson from that. The nexttimc
you hear somo "big news" verify it before
you pass it on. J. D.
VaU it Scuy Bud
In a story handed in tho other day by a
journalism student Sarah Noland were somo
sentiments that are backed up by a lot of our
Wo want to reprint the statement without
expressing any definite opinions:
"The other day one of tho cutics of II-SU
came up to me and asked me what she should
do about the way she frightened the married
"She said that she had honestly tried to
look nice that she took a beauty nap every
day and bathed with Lifcbouy every Satur-
day night yet for some reason they all seem-
ed to run from her.
"And that's tho way a lot of us girls feel
around married veterans. Ilonestly we wimmin
don't intend to be "home-breakers"; wo
know that you guys are not wearing chicken
rings on the third finger left hand just for
the novelty of it. We're just trying to make
the school a nicer placo by being friendly to
"Wo do not mean to be 'flirting' as one
veteran called it. We only have intentions of
being your friends. Wo singlo women are still
looking for single men."

Rounding Up Sketch Pad M
Simmonsites Swamp Waco at B S U Meet
"I came to the BSU Convention to
sec Baylor" remarked a pretty lit-
tle coed from Texas university "but
all I've seen so far is Hardin-Simmons."
Last week-end six chartered
busses carried the largest out-of-town
delegation 225 from the Forty
Acres to Waco for the 1946 annual
convention attended by moro than
2200 Baptist students from nearly
every college campus in Texas.
Since Truett Sheriff H-SU re-
ligious director planned the de-
parture for Friday at 8 a. m. the
deadline was set at 7:30; and oddly
enough the expedition pulled out
of Abilene on time 8 a. m.
When bus passengers weren't
trying to catch up on sleep they
lost the night before because of
last-minute packing they were
Its wheels dogged by misfortune.
Bus 3 took time out for a flat and
a merry little chase on an unknown
country road but ended up with
the others at Waco.
At Brownwood where the five
lucky busloads paused for lunch
Barbara Brown and Shirley Byars
purchased for 49c apiece two little
plastic characters (named Smoc and
Smoe Jr.) with long noses and a
It was in Brownwood that Dorothy
Kincaid and Roland Gregory started
a fad of buying and bursting bal-
loons. By BETTY DOZIER
Since this column is not devoted
strictly to anything except "promot-
ing the general welfare" it is one
of the best places we know to
straighten out tangled ideas such
as one wo came across last Wed-
nesday during election of class fa-
vorites At one of the meetings among
the nominees for favorite were
several who are prominent in re-
ligious activities around the cam-
pus and as the group left tho build-
ing prior to the voting someone be-
hind us was heard to say in a most
caustic tone "It's plain to see that
tho B. S. U. is running this electionl"
.Perhaps tho acid would not have
dripped from this person's words
so stringingly had he realized that
he too was a member of B. S. U
We checked just to see and found
that he was a member of a Baptist
church here in Abilene.
However this Incident is of no
importance aside from the light it
threw on a gross error in thinking
that it may prevail in a lot of mands
here on the campus.
B S. U. won't sound nearly so
formidable if we break it down into
the individual Baptist students it
is composed of and explain again
that B. S. U. cannot "run" any of the
campus affairs that as a general
rule those students who compose
it do not even wish to.
There have been a few in time
past who seemed to have that idea
and tried to put it into practice
and who ended usually in dismal
failure. But a student who has the
right spirit certainly isn't motivated
(Continued on from page 3)
Waco residents never knew what
hit them when six busloads of rowdy
Simmonsites rolled through the busi-
ness section shouting "Yea Hardin-
Simmons" and singing the anthem
and several school songs.
When the girls assigned to ths
Roosevelt Hotel were deposited
there the buses proceeded to the
Raleigh hotel residence for the
majority of the girls. The remain-
ing students were swished out to
the Baylor campus where the boys
were housed in the gymnasium and
a number of girls were to stay with
'girl friends in the dormitories.
When Joyce Canon in charge of
room assignments at the Roosevelt
had finished designating rooms for
the girls she found herself without
the slightest chance for a room or
even a cot
One of the elevator girls at the
Raleigh will never know how much
she humiliated Joyce Stone by bawl-
ing her out in front of the other
elevator passengers all because she
had forgotten to report her floor
number in time.
Several girls who lay down to
take a nap In $4.75 rooms awoke to
find themselves in $6.75 rooms.
Even cots were at a premium.
Friday night Charley Sikes J. B.
Stinnett Ted Smith and Joo Caudle
invaded the Baylor campus trying
to find Minglewood Bowl and the
barbecue supper to be held there.
Completely bewildered Charley
stopped a group of good-looking
coeds and inquired about the Bowl.
After she had given some directions
and as she turned away one foxy
little Baylorite arched an eyebrow
and said "As if you didn't know!"
(The barbecue was good in spite
of the 65c charged for it).
Leave it to Bill Williams to wise
crack that "Baylor must have only
two bears left now. I just helped
eat one at the barbecue."

Coeds Have Field Day at Fish
Sadie Hawkins Party Monday
"Girls have you got your man?
Find him in Dogpatch. Yep this is
.Dogpatch!" Such were the signs
marking the Hardin-Simmons Cor-
ral where some 155 howling bache-
lors and 145 gleeful femmes cele-
brated Sadie Hawkins' day last
There were racing pie eating
cranberry pitching and costume
picking contests climaxed by that
historic scramble of the able gals
for the eligible bachelors. Hot cho-
colate and doughnuts marked the
close of the long-to-be-remembered
night among freshmen.
Responsible for the success of the
party were Bill Williams class pre-
sident; Dan Blocker vice-president;
Miss Mary Collins Blackie Rof

social committeemen Shirley Step-

from raw eggs to razor blades and
Winners of these contests were

Those attending selected typical
Dogpatch characters from a group
of 29 participants. Pappy Yokum
came in a too-small tuxedo portray-
ed by Alan Propp; Mammy Yokum
with her pipe and her boots won
by Nell Rhodes; Li'l Abner with his
one-strapped and patched pants by
Stanley Chipman; and Daisy Mac
with her pig-tails dotted blouse and
abbreviated skirt was won by Jac-
Highlight of tho party was the
shoe-matching scramble of the 34
able gals for the 30 unwilling vic-

took part in a foot race across the
Corral and the three winners were
forced to eat raw eggs as a prize.
The second contest brought tho
seven participants a better realiz-
ation of what Pie Face really is.
They had to lie face down on the
floor and eat pies with their hands
behind their backs. The winner re-
ceived a pie for his efforts.
Four couples contested in the
cranberry throwing contest. Each
girl had to pitch cranberries one at
a time into the mouth of her part-
ner. The boy catching the most was
winner. They then were given a
string of weiners to eat together
without the use of their hands. -
It was one time that the fresh-
men girls really got the guys. Many
took the liberty to invito the boys
and then introduce themselves all
of which added to the fun and ex-
citement of the occasion. The gentle-
men expressed a desire for more of

Different interpretations of justice between
westerners and Chinese lack of diplomatic
channel to settle disputes and illegal trade of
opium finally led to open conflict between
Britain and China.
In 1839 a Chinese official Lin Tze Su tried
to stop the opium trade in Canton. Both the
Co-hong nnd tho western merchants were in-
formed of his order. At first the order was
taken as a bluff but three days later Lin
took action and 30000 cases of opium were
confiscated by Lin. However Lin knew that
that was not the right amount. Finally the Brit-
ish agreed to surrender 20000 more coses.
These Lin dumped in the river.
Brition considered this act an insult to the
Crown nnd determined to subject China to
western procedure of handling matters. A
squadron of warships was despatched to the
Far East and Canton was bombarded in 1841.
The citizens ransomed tho city by giving a sum
of 6000000. But there was no official settle-
ment. So tho British warships moved north
nnd captured Shanghoi nnd and Chunking;
Tho latter being a terminal at the Grand
Canal through which food was being sent to
Peking the capital. In August 1842 Nanking
fell. With tho fall of Nanking the Chinese
government agreed to como to terms.
Tho Treaty of Nanking gave diplomatic
equality to Britain. It opened fivo treaty ports
to foreign trade and residence. Tho ports were
Canton Amoy Foochow Ningpo nnd Shang-
hai. Also extra territoriality rights were
granted nn indemnity of $21000000 was paid
and tho island of Hongkong was ceded to
Noting the benefits that Britain gained by
the Treaty of Nanking tho Uited States sent
Caleb dishing to China to negotiate a similar
treaty known as tho Wanghsia Treaty which
gave tho U. S. A. all the privileges of dip-
lomatic equality trade and residence in the
fivo treaty ports and extra territoriality
rights. Following tho United States' example
France Norway Belgium signed similar treat-
ies with China.
The opium wnr revealed China's weakness
to all other western powers. Though China was
crushed militarily her prido was not bent.
Tho arrogance of tho Munchu rulers and their
ignorance of tho weakness of tho couutry led
to further humiliations by the western powers
