Thih year the faculty and board of
diiectoih stamp their appioval on the
goodly number of fouiteen in the form
of degieex They sue line students
perhap.s the be.st the school lia.s evei
had. Duiiug their school days all of
them hae been good and obedient
children. Some of them hae been
here a long long time; not because
they weie slow to master their work
but because in some instances thcii
high school work has been done heie
in the academy; and otheis feel this
is a good place to be. The faculty has
dealt fairly with them and while
giving them cultuie their teachers
have developed in them a veiy agiee-
able and pout etui disposition. At
least that is the impiession the or-
dinary student gets. In no instance
have the faculty and students had to
make any concessions to them. The
things they have exacted of us have
always been fair and leasnnablc and
things we could got together on.
There seems to have arisen however
among themselves an annoying ques-
tion one for which there is no known
solution. Pel haps if they only knew
how much advice and how many sug-
gestions undoi classmen have to olfei
them they would be moie pcisistcnt
in seeking our aid. Since men and
women in the woild have to light their
own battles all have agieod foi
them to light this one alone as a
practice light. Their pioblem is
whether at commencement cseicinos
they will wear caps and gowns.
Some membeis believe it should be
done while others think it should b
left to the individual to act as he
or she pleases. However their de-
cision goes it is of inteiest to the
other College men and women because
they are setting a standard rathei
forming a custom that will live on
in the school.
Since obstructions have been placed
befoio the trails which tlecmatc the
campus it is with pleasuie that we
notice student and tiespas.sois ob-
serving them and staying on the side-
walks. After a few weeks we will
have a campus that any college should
be proud of and it is our aim to keep
it that way.
Dr. II. K. Vinson.
The choice of Dr. It. E. Vinson as
President of the University of Tonus
seems to huve been a happy one. A
half holiday was had for celebration
of the election. The Daily Texan had
many things to say about Dr. Vinson
all of which weie tiue but one thing
the editor omitted saying that is pre-
eminently tuie and that is he is a
friend to young men and can leach
them in a way to help them. Not
only the University boys hold him in
such high esteem but thole aie boys
all over the state who have met I)r.
Vinson in his public service as a
louder in Y. M. C. A. Confeionces
und along his own chosen lines. .
These boys have been helped by him
and have become his admiieis Those
of us who have had the good foitune
to have met Dr. Vinson in these ways
rejoice with you all and send congrat-
ulations for the happy choice of your

(iiace sat in her room seveial weeks
later wondering why James did not
wiite. She wondered if he was sick i
with no one to wait on him. She
wondeied if be was dead. "Oh! no
that couldn't be" she said. As the
time grew on she giew bitter toward

he had leally proposed. She was un-
nerved although she said nothing but
"no." (ieoige Hill knew that to win
her lovo he must resoit to some oth-
er plan. He wiote to a New Yoik
editoi ol a small paper made ar-
rangements to have an aiticle inset t-
ed in a paper and a copy of it sent
to Grace. He laughed a levcngoful
laugh and said "this will Tin her now.'
Ten days luter Grace was sitting
in the garden alone George watching
her fiom his window. He saw the
servant take a paper to her. He saw
her tear off the wrapper and read a
few lines. She tlnow the miner down. I
leaned back on the back of the seat
and cried like a child. George said
to himself. "Now is my chance." He
.vent down the walk looking as inno-
cent as a babe came to Giace put
his arm mound her and asked hei
what was her tiouble. She pointed to
the paper. He picked up the papei

He told her what a brute that this
Jamo.s was. He also told her of his
love und how happy they could be.
(iiace pel hups thought the same. Any
uy she said nothing. They went to
the house; Gruce went to her loom
while George like all others of his
kind went to rejoice over his good
fortune. His father found him sit-
ting in the library reading. Ho went
up to him quickly and angiily said
"George I want you to leave that lit-
tle I.oyd woman alone. I have picked
out the gill thut I want you to murry.
I saw you a while ago out in the gar-
den and I want you to cut it out do

"Well I was only trying to console
her. Her .swoetheuit innnicd another
woman the other day."
"If that is the case 1 suppose it's
not so bud but if I see you with your
