'it last been made. The officers of the
' ortramzation nave gaiiieci tno consent
of the faculty to the establishment of
a cooperative committee consisting of
five students and an equal number
from the faculty which will have joint
oversight of the affairs most closely
pertaining to the students. There is
to be a special seivicc Tuesday morn-
ing in chapel in which there will be
talks setting foith the nature of this
committc and the benefits which may
bo dcrivrd from its existence. The
students will receive an opportunity
for expressing their attitude toward
the institution of this committee and
an effort will be made to create a
wholesome sentiment in favor of ra-
tional student participation in the gov-
ernmental offairs of the college.
It is obvious that great good will
come from the woik of this committee.
It is to cooperate with the faculty in
cieating the right sentiment toward
examinations; in the supervision of all
conditions which are not what they
should be; and in putting in force laws
which arc satisfactory to both stu-
dents and faculty. When the student
body feels that it has had a part in
the forming of a law it can not bo
branded as unjust without the stu-
dents churging themselves with in-
justice. When the student himself
has agreed to a condition the break-
ing of the contract is the breaking of
his own word nothing else. When the
student can be brought to see that the
laws of a school arc merely the ex-
pression of what he thinks should gov-
ern and that the rules are for the
good of the students and not an im-
position from some higher authority
then will the school be managed with
the best results for all concerned.
While we ull feel that this is an im-
portant first step in the right direc-
tion no student should blame the fac-
ulty that it has not been taken sooner.
The fact is that at the very first of
the school the teachers were practi-
cally unanimous in their willingness
to give the students a voice in the af-
fairs of the college. They said how-
ever and rightly so that the propo-
sition must come from the student
body in the form of a petition ask-
ing that certain rights be given. Till
now the Students Organization has
not acted. But neither should it be
blamed. The officers felt that with-
out a sentiment among the sctudents
back of the proposition organization
would be of no avail. And so the pre-
ceding months have passed without
visible agitation but in the meantime
the students interested have labored
to bring before the students an idea of
what Student Government could mean
in our school and have attempted to
create a desire on the part of the stu-
dents to take part in making the rules
which are to govern them.
HID TEXAS TEACH-
Prominent Educators to speak
Howard Payne Chapel
The second annual session of the
Mid-Texas Teacher's Association will
be held in Brownwcod March 24th and
25th. This association is composed of
the teachers from fifteen counties sur-
rounding Urownwood and its meeting
indicates a live interest in education
in this part of the state. Howard Pay-
ne College is always interested in ed-
ucational matters and we arc very
glad to note the increasing zeal of the
community. Wo stand ready to wel-
come all the visiting teachers and are
glad to open our doors to a large pait
of the regular meetings of the Associa-
tion. Friday and Saturduy mornings
the programs will be given at the Ly-
ric Theatre and Friday afternoon and
night and Saturday afternoon the As-
sociation will be in session at How-

Besides the attendance of the teach-
ers in this district there are to be
prominent visitors from other sections
of the state. Dr. Stocktone Axson

It is to be hoped that the students of
Howard Payne College will avail
themselves of the opportunity to hear
the most of those programs.

FRIDAY MARCH 24 1916
DR. J. H. CARROLL
VISITS HOWARD PAYNE
Talks to Students on Education
Dr. J. M. Carroll ex-president of H.
P. who for the past year has been
at Richmond Va. spoke in chapel
Wednesday morning. He received a
hearty welcome from the old students
and made friends with the new ones.
Few men ever make chapel talks here
that are more appreciated than his.
In the few minutes he talked he com-
pared education inVirginia with that
of Texas. The boys are very much
opposed to co-education and don't
want any girls about where they go to
school. He told us of a bill that was
pending in the state legislature the
purpose of which was to make the
University of the state a co-educational
institution. The university men
protested and made a stiong fight
against the bill. He also said there
was not an institution in the state that
conferred degrees on women.
Dr. Carroll has retired form school
work and has accepted a pastorate in
San Antonia Texas.
BASE BALL AND
It will be seen from the schedule
that the Yellow Jackets are to go
against three of the strongest teams
of the state. The games with Chinese
University coming Monday and Tues
day will perhaps be the most thrill-
ing exhibition to be seen here this '
season unless it be the deciding game
with D. B. C. The Chinese team ranks
among the best college teams of the
world; to win from them one game or
to hold them a close score would give
our men very high rank in college

Great Spirit of Interest and Enthu-
The Theodoric-Irving banquet did
seem to arouse the spirit of the Irv-
ings because in last Friday's meeting
a great spirit of interest and enthusi-
asm was manifested. All the members
were not present but each one carried
out their part exceptionally well. The
subject of our program was "Howard
Payne" and many of us learned things
HOWARD PAYNE ATfl-
LETICS HAVE A BOOH
New addition to Pitching Staff and
Number of track Men Increasing
Five men are out for the pitching
staff this week and all are showing
up well. We are glad to welcome
Wooden back to our camps. Evans
and Wooden have the problem of bad
arms to work off but very likely that
will be easily done.
Indications are that the game with
Clear Creek was a greater victory for
us than the score of 10 to nothing in-
dicates it discovered to us another
Harris. He is six four and weighs
170 pounds. The young fellow has
plenty of stuff but of course is a nov-
ice in college atheletics. We have al-
ready ascribed "Big Harris" the title
of Wooden but his young bud may
"cap" this from him. Wooden will
greatly strengthen our team by work-
ing at third when he is not in the box.
The whole team is doing exceptionally
good work. We are looking for H. P.
C. laurels to increase materially when
the two games are played with D. B.
C. Friday and Saturday and the two
with the Chinese University Monday
A whole "bunch" of men are out this
week for track. The prospects are in-
deed encouraging for that line of athe-
letics. There is room for more. Come
on boys and get in the "swim."
Dr. Barton Lectures to Young Mens'
A good crowd was greatly benefit-
ted by a lecture given to the Y. M. C.
A. Monday evening by the pastor of
the Methodist Church.
Among the many things that he
so earnestly said were these:
It takes a long time to do things
that are worth while. A mushroom
which is worth little may grow up in
one night but a great oak used as
building material lcquires a hundred
years. Then it takes a constant effort
throughout all life to count for most
in any phase of life. Hence we seo
the importance of our daily life. As
each stroke in the right way on a
great rock seems to be worthless un-
til the sufficient number has been
made so may our work seem at times.
The last faithful day may accomplish
the great task of life.
After this favored speech a good
number decided to meet this week to
begin the Mission Study Class.
concerning our "alma mater" which
we did not know and every one seem-
ed to enjoy the hour very much. One
number well worth mentioning was
"Advantages we Received in Howard
Payne." It was well brought out that
we students do not only have an excel-
lent opportunity to receive a good lit-
erary education but ulong many other
lines as well.
The Society with her new set of of-
ficers plan to reach out and do a bet-
ter and greater work this next term.
There will be many things to detract
our attention from society work but
by persistent efforts we can accom-
plish many things in the coming three
