PRESS CLUB ORGANIZED
Members of Prism and Lasso Staffs
Ell'eet Important Organization.
Local Club Will Start Work Hoping
to Receive Membership in State
The members of the staffs of our
two college publications The Prism
and The Lasso met on Tuesday De-
cember the 14th and took steps to-
ward the organization of perhaps one
of the most impoitant activities of
college life a Pies Club. Last year
some preliminary action toward this
step was taken but no visible results
were produced. This year it is hoped
that the Club luay do woik which will
be helpful and of practical benefit to
the whole schol.
The first step was the election of of-
ficeis the Mowing being placed in of-
fice: Ok mi Brooks Piesideut C. K.
Lancaster Vice-President; Mis Cecile
Lancaster Corresponding Secretary;
Miss Ethel Neal Recording Secretary;
and Willaid Taylor Treasurer. A
committee was appointed to draw up
a constitution to bo submitted for ap-
proval by the Club at its next meeting.
The president also appointed a pro-
gram committee for making a pro-
gram to bo given as soon as a conven-
ient time can be obtained for a social
and biihincs meeting.
The organization of this Press Club
does not mean that we have already
obtained membership in the State
Press Association. We intend to work
toward that aim yet our Local Club is
organized for a purpose closer at hand i
The students who are at the head of '
our student publications realize that
something is lacking in the suport
these institutions receive at the hands
of our student body. There is not
enough interest manifested by the in-
dividual students. There is too great
a tendency to leave the paper alto-
gether to the stall' for publication.
Naturally this is unwise and unjust;
the paper under those conditions is not
a true leprescntalion of the school
and the responsibility and work for
the stall' is too heavy. And so the
Press Club hopes to foster an interest
in journalism to encourage a spirit of
loyalty to our college paper and to
create a love for writing for its own
The Club is planning to hold regular
meetings where dilliculties may be
mentioned and overcome and where
the problems of our college publica-
tions may bo discussed with benefit to
all. By means of contests and other
agencies it hopes to obtain a better
class of writings for our papers. As
soon as possible the Club hopes to be-
come a member of the State Associa-
tion from which relation many bene-
fits may be received. From the work
here in Howard Payne we hope to ob-
tain results which will put our publi-
cations on a higher plane and thus re-
flect more glory on our college

Time and again the merits of socie-

students of Howard Payne College.
Such is a worthy theme and we ought
to yet urge it more and more
It is a
recognized fact not only with us but
with other schools in the state that
we have splendid literary societies in
our school. The spirit generated in
these societies lias been showing itself
in all of our college activities. We do
not hesitate to say that Howard Payne
would not lie the college that it is if
it did not possess four of the best l!t-
erary societies to 1)3 found anywhere

Howard Payne is especially fortu-
nte in the sPirt that is being created
with reference to athletics. The one
who "as lead ln this movement is none
other than Coach Copas. Perhaps
Howard Payne supporters at large
know very 1'ttle about him. For such
we will say that he is a member of the
First Baptist church of Brownwood
the teacher of the Berean Sunday
School Class; a clean sportsman and in
every way a Christian gentleman lie
is loved and admired by the student
body. He stands not only for grcat.:r
athletics but for a greater Howa.d

a well rounded college man will stay
with us for years to come.
In the meeting of the Athletic Coun-
cil and a number of student athletic
