THE STUDENT OF
TODAY IS THE CITI-
ZEN OF TOMORROW
If the student of today could realize
that he is to be the citizen of tomor-
row he would perhaps try to become
more efHcient. By the time a person
has reached the adolescent period
he has a definite notion of what the
duty of a first class citizen is. Many
young people fail to realize that they
are fast becoming citizens of the coun
trv in which they live and that the
development of the Nation depends on
One of the first things for a stu-
dent to do. is to develop himself intel-
lcctually. He must know something!
about science something about history
and in fact something about all the
great movements of the day. He must
be able to speak and write the English
language correctly and know some-
thing of the language and customs of
his neighboring countries in order to
become a first class citizen.
And again the student must develop
himself physically. No Nation of peo-
ple with weak bodies can win in the
race of life if the present generation
is weak physically the coming genera-
tion will be still weaker. The student
should give much attention to the de-
velopment of his body. He should take
nlnntv of outdoor exercise and avoid
keeping late hours and worrying overl
unnecessary things. What makes the
Greeks famous all down the ages?
They developed their bodies by out
door sport and left their minds to
Also if a student wishes to become
a model citizen he must train him-
self socially. The world is everywhere
calling for great social leaders and
who is to fill this place but the stu-
dent? There must be leaders in all
great movements. People are all
social beings and must have some
forms of entertainment. The educat-
ed person should bo the one who is
best fitted to furnish means for the
proper kind of amusements.
And lastly the student is the one
who is going to lead the people mor-
ally. The time has come when the
educated man is in demand in all
phases of citizenship. If the student
has developed a high code of morals
he is a means of uplifting humanity
but if he is an immoral man lie pulls
It is essential thut a good citizen be
efficient intellectually physically and
socially and inaddition to these three
qualifications he must bo efficient mor-
November hale and full of life
Is smiling on the weather
As through the dead and falling leaves
They journey on together.
While geese are honking overhead
And frosty winds are blowing
Tomorrow may be warm of course
And yet it may be snowing.
The stubble fields are fallow now
Or spears of wheat arc peeping
From out the mellow fertile earth

evening was very profitable. Come

This was Christ.

Habits of life which result in sue-
cess or failure are formed by the time
a person is twenty-live years of age.
Prepare for a position in life that is
greater than any you now see.
Diiecl your energy with a victorious
spirit and smash every difliculty in
ii character attractive.
Ceil your mind with truth paper it
with pure thoughts hung on its walls
pictures of success and by your will
admit nothing except what will come
through the door of reason.
And. patient vigil keeping
For balmy whispers from the south
To set their stems to booting
And with its vivifying breath
To start their heads to shooting.
But weary duys of biting cold
And frost that knows no pity
And winter winds with voices harsh
That sing a chilly ditty
Will hold the fields in close embrace
Perhaps in icy tether
Before returning spring appears
With vivifying weuther.
November has its uses then
In acting a a damper
To chilly breaths of Boreas
And does his rushes hamper.
It curbs his hoary frigid strength
And that is great remember
Until it has to give its place
To gloomy bleak December.

"DON'T DO THAT"
Mary B. was a fat jolly little girl
.. !. ui.irnn vnlll-K old. S'.IO had U lit-
tie brother Charles who was a very
naughty little boy. Everything his lit-
tle sister would do he would 'tell ma-
ma'. Mrs. B. would never fail to say
"Now daughter don't do that."
The two children were in the nur
sery one morning playing when all of
a sudden Churles cried out "mama!

A considerable disappointment was
felt in the Dullas University game
Our men was hindered by the forward
pusses that was brillantly handled by
the Dallas University team. A pow-
erful machine had been developed a-
round Greggs. Some foot ball critics
say he even surpassed Littlefleld in
passing the ball. Some have Wonder-
ed how we held Baylor to. such a' close
score and yet were -so overwhelmed by
the Catholics. One reason is our men
did not measure ui to the furhting
spirit characterized them the first of
the season but the greater reason is
Baylor used old time tactics and Dal-
las University played open foot ball
Daniel Baker seems to be climbing
up and we are glad to see it.' We want
them to make a good showing ag-iinst
other teams but we are hoping and ex-1
pecting to see them smashed Thanks- j
The crushing defeat Friday should
melt every gruin of friction and cem-
cut our men together. Boys every
heart in old H. P. C. believes in you
and is anxiously expecting to see you
come to the front again.
make .Mary quit building
Mrs. B. at once said "Mary don't do
Again Mrs. B.. heard Charles squeul
"Mama make Mury stay on her side
of the room." then "Mama make
Mury leave Maud alone."
Several just such requests were
heard by .Mrs. B. and each time she
would say "Daughter don't do thut."
Poor little Mary did not know what
to do so at last she sat down on her
own little bed and would not say a
single word to Charles when he would
talk to her. As he was a very talkative
child and was always asking questions
this made him real angry. He called
"Mama Mary won't talk to me at all."
Mrs. B. asked "Why won't she talk
to you?" '
Just then she went in the room
where the children were but not once
could she make Mary answer her ques-
tions. Mrs. B. being very excited over
this thinking little Mary to he ill at
once 'phoned for her husband to come
In a few minutes Mr. B. rushed into
the nursery and began asking ques-
tions. Then turning to his daughter
he asked "Dearest what is the mat-
ter? Are you ill?"
The little girl smiled ut him coquet-
tishly and answered "I'm not sick at
all papa I just wanted to see if ma-

Weep not for golden ages on the

At sunrise every soul is born again.
Laugh like a boy at splendors that
To vanished joys be blind and deaf
My judgements seal the dead past

But never blind a moment yet to
Though deep in mire wring not your
hands and weep;
I lend my arm to all who say "1
No shame faced out cast ever sank so
But yet he might rise and be again a
Dost thou behold thy lost youth all

Then turn from blotted archives of the
