Friday. September IS 1960
To the Freshman class of 1960 the publication staff
the faculty and the administration extend their warmest
welcome. We hope that you will find at Hardin-Simmons
University all the opportunities necessary for continuing
your education and for preparing yourself so that you
may be a service to yourself your community and our
university while you are here.
From all indications this year will be one that will be
long-remembered by freshmen. We hope that you will
participate in the many activities that are awaiting you in
your college life here. The H-SU Brand your university
newspaper will feature a full account of the various ac-
tivities as they draw near.
By now you have completed freshman orientation and
will be beginning classes. You will meet many people
students and faculty and will make many friendships
that will last for a lifetime.
Perhaps you new students and freshmen have noticed
the tall cement columns protruding high into the sky and
wondered just what they would someday represent. To
you students returning you may wonder if any progress
at all has been made.
Regardless of outward appearances progress is being
made toward the completion of the new chapel building.
"Good progress is being made at present although it has
not progressed as far as we had hoped" according to Dr.
E. W. Bailey controller at H-SU.
. From all present indications the chapel should be com-
pleted by the early part of March barring bad weather
or other unforseen difficulties. Once the roof is com-
pleted work can continue regardless of the weather"
said Dr. Bailey. "The brick work will probably be com-
pleted by Christmas" he concluded.
A good start often results in a good ending academic-
ally speaking. It seems that the time to make a good
show and start on courses would be at the very beginning
and thus eliminating last-minute cramming nervous
frustration and excessive scholastic fatalities.
Another item of interest to all students is the university
radio station which will be on the air every night from
'7 p. m. until 11 p. m. Dr. DeWitte T. Holland associate
professor in speech and Director of Forensics will be in
-charge of the broadcasting and also a radio workshop.
.Students interested in radio should contact Dr. Holland
The primary aim of the station is entertainment mostly
in the form of music Dr. Holland said. Interesting per-
sonalities about the campus will also be featured Dr.

Well dear hearts after three
months of fun frolic and third
degree sun burns it's time to get
back to the trusty rusty type-
writer. Ah yes we once again
resume our responsibilities as
collegiate slobs I We are here to
carry on the work of those dear
hearts who were asked to leave
last year. So rested and ready
we will undertake to cut class
sleep through chapel and become
malnutreated by bean "food.
I trust everyone had an exotic
summer. Our new fellow fresh-
men probably spent the summer
thinking about the exciting
weeks ahead of them and biting
their nails clean up to their
elbows while the upper-classmen
sat around thinking up
nasty little things to do to the
I had a great summer I
worked as a lab technicial in a
doctor's office. The pay was not
too good until I made a deal with
the director of the funeral home.
I had to do some pretty import-
ant things around the office
such as pick splinters empty
little bitty white buckets and sit
on people who didn't take to
getting shots with square
needles! This may not sound
like much but I would be so
tired when I got off for lunch I
would have to be fed through the
veins. This way I could eat and
sleep at the same time!
One thing I did enjoy about
my work was meeting all types
of people. Like the beatnik that
came in he had tripped over his
beard and we had to take eight
stitches in his bongo drums. And
then there was the man who fell
in front of an auto traveling 90
miles an hour we had to treat
him for a severe headache.
If it was not for long hours
low pay and strong acids lab life
would be great.
Psalm of ihe Lab
The lab is my jeopard I cannot
It maketh me to lie down with
It eateth my clothes with strong
It destroyeth my soles.
It leadeth me in the paths of
science for its own sake.
Yea though I walk through the
welter of stinks and smells
I will fear no evil.
For it is in me.
It provideth ja bench for me in
the presence of phosgene.
It loadeth my day with toil.
My beaker runneth over.
Surely bad taste and odors shall
follow me and I shall "smell
dn the house of science for
"School spirit is being in-
terested in all of the school's ac-
tivities and supporting these
activities to the fullest extent"
said Jean Edens head cheerleader
for the varsity cheerleaders. She
further stated that the cheer-
leaders want everyone on campus
to back' all athletic events which
includes pep rallys football
games and basketball games.
The six varsity cheerleaders
full of pep and power and ready
to go are Karen Hood Sopho-
more Trent; Melinda Millican
Sophomore Fort Worth; Judy
Royal Junior Abilene; La Ra
Petit Junior San Antonio; Dale
Byran ophomore San Angelo;
and Jean Edens Senior Talpa.
Just Among Us Friends
He remembers the jokes
He tells them with obvious glee;
I wish he could also remember
How often he's told them to me.

The members of the Student
Council ended their summer early
to return to the dear old "forty
acres." Council meetings re-
sumed on September 8 with the
chief item on the agenda being
planned for freshman orienta-
tion. Among other plans made con-
cerning the new "fish" were the
rules passed in regard to "beanie
wearing." Freshmen will be re-
quired to wear their beanies
through Homecoming October 22
and then to the all-school trip on
November 5. Student Council
members this year may take the
names of those who do not wear
their beanies and summon them
to appear before the council.
Naturally we doubt that this
measure will need to be enforced
since the new freshmen obviously
are just overflowing with school
spirit. I bet they even sleep in
those beanies 1
If you like contests then get
out your thinking caps. In the
near future a "Name the Buttons
Contest" will be sponsored by the
Student Council. Be thinking up
a catchy new name for our fresh-
man football teaml
Keep this date open: Septem-
ber 22. That will be the big
night for the Texas Restaurant
Association College Day at Lytle
Shores Auditorium. Imagine all
you can eat for $1.00! In addi-
tion there will be a variety show
door prizes and a skit contest
with $100 in cash prizes. Local
members of the TRA are spon-
soring the event in appreciation
of the students of the three col-
leges. Let's have a good turn
out from H-SU. Tickets will be
sold here on the campus.
