PICNIC FOR CHRIST-

With an Excursion to the Hsiyou.
Realizing: the truth of the old adage
that "all work and no play makes Jack
a dull boy" the Cliristiun Associa-1
lions try to maintain the social as well
as the religious side of their work. In '
the rush attendant upon the opening
of the school year the social side has
been somewhat neglected. For this
reason and also because they know
well the helpful cllect of a few hours
in tli woods the Y. W. C. A. invites
every member of the Y. M. C. A. to
accompany them on a picnic at the
Bayou next Monday afternoon.
All girls and boys uniting with the
associations between now and Monday
will have the benefits of this picnic.
So let every Association member try
to enlist all the new members possible
during the next week. Then let every
inc be on hand Monday afternoon and
laying aside all care let us enjoy our-
selves so much that on our return we
may take up the battle of life anew
and with a cleared mind solve every
problem to our entire satisfaction.

Friday morning Dr. Baton gave the
chapel hour to the students for the
purpose of organizing a Students
Council. Mr. F. W. Taylor took the
iloor and called for nominations.
Hut little society spirit was shown
to see which society would furnish the
President for place of highest honor
in the student body. The result was

J. S. H. SOCIETY
flic J. S. H. girls feel that the time
spent this year in our work has not
been wasted. The interest in the lit-
erary work and the way the girls have
brought up their parts on the program
show that there is some
thing to the work of a literary socie-
ty. All the programs have been in-
teresting so far and the program
committee is trying each time to make
out a program that is different and
yet beneficial and interesting. The
program Friday the 5th was one of
the best if not the best of the prog -
' ciety and we will be glad to have the
girls in school who have not joined
either of the literary societies to come
and visit us.

The Daniel Raker "Kids" are on the

first contest of the year over the
Young Yellow Jackets. Our men out-
placed them nine-tenths of the game
before but this last game was alto-

McHan received the only completed

Judging from the way he gained with

Ilai'ton can be counted on for substan-

The whole line did excellent work.

WHY SHOW AYODNC
WONAN GO TO COLLEGE
Muny people argue that it is a waste
of time and money for a girl to spend
from one to four years in college. If
liiwults ''' ill-
a girl goes to college she ill not be
likely to marry before she is physical-
ly and mentally mature. The counte-
nancing by modern society of the
marriage of young girls is a blot upon
uor civilization. She may have more
social ease than the boy of eighteen
but her judgements are no riper. She
may not have to earn the family liveli-
hood but she will have to bo respon-
sible for the way most of her hus-
band's earnings are spent.
A college education gives a girl a
wide range of occupational choice and
insures her against future dependence.
Necessity need not drive the college
girl into an uncongenial occupation
nor does she have to marry to escape
the heart rending toil of the industrial
worker. She can calmly decide where
she will cast her life and after the de-
cision is reached she has the same
freedom in working out her own suc-
cess. A college education make:; a woman
mistress of herself by training her in
self-control. It lifts her above those
petty frivolities commonly considered
a n. ark of feminity. The college girl
taught to respect the sacredne.ss of
scientific facts to think in logical se-
