he purpose of these socie- ties was to encourage liter- ary and forensic endeav- ors. They also promoted a healthy spirit of competition among the students. Barret was offered the presidency of Southwestern Christian College in Denton, which he accepted in the spring of 1908. The entire administra- tion of the college resigned with Barret to go to SCC. Thus, before the school was well started, it was bereft of its strongest minds and abilities among the faculty. H. C. Darden, superintendent of Clyde schools, was offered the presi- dency ofthe college and he accepted. He had recently been added to the church, and was known to some of the board members as a capable adminis- trator. As president he took the responsibil- ity of selecting a faculty, getting enough students for the faculty to teach and making up the deficit that was sure to arise. In 1909 baseball practice had begun. Records seem to be rather scanty as to how bad the team was the first couple of years.
