OW OF 1934 run out because they do not like the dates. We have also been wondering about tne expression " Dallas twelves. " With the holidays over everyone settled joyfoully (?) down to work (??)i and comparing experiences during the holidays. Was 1 ? Was he handsome r And did my ma give me ? " lou will please meet wan die raculty committee to discuss disbanding iraternities ana sororities at Centenary. " 1 ep ! Those were the exact words on tne notices received by the Creeks. Arter much discussion, the Greeks decided that there would be no more dances given by organizations ot Cen- tenary, line ideals, my friends, hue ideals. i lungs were going along too peaceiully, so ye editor of ye Conglomerate annouunced a popularity contest. Ui course everything was tair and square in this contest. l here was no such thing as stufnng the ballot box, and vote buying, or combines, which things are seen in other schools. (_)1 course the indepe ndents never thought or soliciting votes at the polls. 1 he gal who was doing tne soliciting got her own vote and those of the other members of the independent ticket, x he Creek organizations reaped a nice crop ot " favor- ites " trom the dimes they sowed, as usual. Contest, contest, who will win the contest? Yep, another chance to politic. The ancient and honorable custom ot electing a May Queen next held the attention ot the student body. What we cannot understand is how five people can cast eight votes? It must be all right, because we know of two cases where the practice was freely admitted, and at least ten more not admitted. Whoops! More contests. This time it is for Voncopin Sponsor. There were only four candidates, but this number was soon cut to three. Our most sacred bunch of garlic to the gal who quit early in the race because of cold feet. Anyhow, this was one contest where winning or losing depended entirely on the ability of the candidate. Women in the boys dormitory ! At least that was the report given the president by one of the boys in the dorm. Lots of smoke, but no fire located. It turned out to be the bride in the womanless wedding presented by the freshmen at stunt night. Grunts, squeaks, and yells began to pour forth daily from the chapel. What is it? Just the band practicing for their tour. There seems to have been some rare occurrences on these trips, since those students who made them spoke such a strange language on their return. We present herewith a few samples. Why be quiet when you can holler whoopee! Zip! Burp! Pass the chicken. Don ' t care if I do. Who took that last ? Roach your mane, Nellie. If I had 90,000 votes, I ' d give them all to him. But enough of this. Should we allow our students to go on tours and have their minds affected in such manner? Just about this time we began to have a little warmer weather,, and the leaves and grass began to turn green. Ah! In spring a young man ' s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of what the gals have been thinking about all winter. Many a romance sprouted on our campus this spring, but we are afraid there is going to be an early frost for some of them from all indica- tions. Perhaps the most important happening at this time was one of our frats going high-hat. After due conference with the faculty, the boys from Ruther- ford have decided not to initiate any new members until January, 1935. Some snobs, eh, Rollo? Of course there is spring football. The boys are out there fighting for the love of deah old alma mammy, or Agnes, or Mary, or some other gal. Some of the boys evidently did not have the re- quired stuff, as the well-known suitcase parade has started. Well, so long until next year. Stuff your keyholes with cotton. Be sure you are alone before you say what you are thinking. Carefully turn all lights out before doing anything rash. The Donkeypin will get you if you don ' t watch out ! rW V . I, ' J „- vc ■0
