Playing hard and fast games, El Paso
Tigers captured the Southwestern Foot-
ball Championship this season for the
second time since 1927. Coach Brum-
below and his assistant, Martin, had good
material and made much use of it.
The real "high-lights" of the season
were turned on at the Phoenix Game.
The Tigers played steadily and fast, hold-
ing the Coyottes to a scoreless game. The
Austin battle revealed all the revenge the
last season had inculcated in the hearts of
Tiger men, and Thanksgiving saw a real
game. The Bowie game, although lost,
was a hard fought battle that brought
forth plenty of fight from both sides.
Altogether, the season was a victorious
one, and the team under the leadership
of two of the finest coaches in the South-
west played one of the most successful
seasons that a team has ever played.

BASKET BALL SEASON
Starting off in a "big way", the basket ball players under Coach
Brunbelow and his assistant, Martin, really outplayed themselves at the
beginning of the season. It was not until a few games had been lost
that the boys found themselves and really started playing basketball.
There were few old men from which to pick the team, but there was
plenty of new material. It was hard work getting the team to play in
perfect form on the court. When the El Paso High boys won two games
over the superior Phoenix team, the "Tigers" came into the spot light,
and the future City Basket Ball Championship battle looked more interest-
ing than before. But the Phoenix game proved to be the fight in which
the "Tigers" really reached their best playing and the peak of the season.
They made serious threats in the city championship games but failed to
reach their mark. However, the Coaches did some very hard work in
order to keep the team "clicking", and as a result a hard-fighting team
represented El Paso High in basketball during the past season,

supreme in hockey. The baseball championship is still

History of the R. 0. T C.
By Act of Congress of june, l9l6, fThe National Defense Actj it was
decided to modernize the armed defense forces of the government.
Among other provisions there was created the Reserve Officers Training
Corps QR. O. T. CJ, units of which were to be established in universities,
colleges, military schools and high schools of the nation, the authorities
of which should make application for the same. Colleges were provided
with senior units and preparatory schools with junior ones. This plan
was delayed by the entry into and participation of the United States in
the World War.
Following the war the school authorities of El Paso fin the Spring of
19201 made application to the Federal Government for a junior Unit of
the R. O. T. C. to be established in the El Paso High School. Previous
to this, before and during the war, a Drill Corps had been maintained.
Now the official application was granted and a regular unit was opened
in September 1920, the first established in Texas. At that time there
arrived the first Professor of Military Science and Tactics, Major Paul
X. English, Infantry, U. S. Army, accompanied by the sergeant-instructors.
The R. 0. T. C. Unit was, for eight and one-half years, confined to El
Paso High School but, in january of 1928, was extended to Austin High
School, the unit having been divided between the two schools since that
time. At present the corps is organized as a two-battalion regiment with
regimental headquarters and band of two sections. The lst Battalion,
fCo's "B", and "D"j, Znd Section Regimental Band and part
of the Regimental Hq. are located at El Paso High School. The 2nd
Battalion fCo's "E", "FH, "G" and lst Section Regimental Band
and the remainder of the Regimental Hq. are at Austin High School. The
total enrollment of the corps is 603 Cadets, 290 at El Paso High and 318
at Austin High. This constitutes 46.38W of the male enrollment of the
schools, a percentage which is constantly increasing and has never before
On November 2nd, 1933, the Board of Education recognized the grow-
ing value and importance of the Corps of Cadets by granting to it a
Charter which established it as a definite and autonomous unit of the
school system to be carefully preserved in its rights and perquisites.
As an adjunct to the corps a girls' regiment has been begun by the
organization of "N" Company at Austin High and "R" Company at El
Paso High. The girls' units, of course, cannot be enrolled in the R. O. T.
C. Unit but form an attractive and inspiring auxiliary to the Corps of
In April 1933 and 1934, as a result of the annual War Department
inspection, the unit was placed on the Honor Roll of R. O. T. C. units
of the nation. This year's cadet rifle team placed third in the Corps
Area Rifle Matches and was selected to enter in this year's National
The Professors of Military Science and Tactics have been as follows:
Major Paul X. English, Infantry,-September, 1920, to August, 1924.
Captain Brisbane Brown, Infantry,-September, 1924, to August, 1928.
Major William H. Henderson, Engineers,-September, 1928, to Decem-
ber, 1930. Captain Andrew Wynne, Cavalry,-December, 1930, to
january, 1931. Lt. Colonel jesse Gaston, Infantry,-january, 1931, to
August, 1932. Major james P. Moore, Infantry,-September, 1932, to
The present Sergeant-instructors are-Staff Sergeant, George W.
Robison, Infantry, and Sergeant Lafayette Sexton, Infantry.
The objects of the R. O. T. C. are to build better physical men, to
instill a respect for authority, to cultivate the habit of prompt and exact
obedience, to develop the habit of neat, cleanly dress, and to give a
thorough basic military education on the drill field and in the class room.
Four years with the R. O. T. C. always proves its value.

The Editorial Staff of the 1934 SPUR was somewhat hampered by rr
lack of funds with which to put out an elaborate year book. However,
through the cooperation of El Paso business men, the encouragement of
Mr. Davis and the faculty, and the enthusiasm of t.he staff the publication
of a representative annual was accomplished.
The theme of the book was the Chicago World's Fair-"A Century
of Progress". The work, done entirely by students, is very striking in its

On account of the "depression" the Business Staff was not altogether
successful in its campaign for "ads" from business corporations in down
town districts. Thus, it was decided to hold a lavish carnival in which
coronation ceremonies, dancing, and all varieties of entertainment and
food would figure. The profits derived were more than sufficient to
solve all the SPUR financial difficulties for the year of 1934.
The club-is composed of lettermen in the three
major-sports: football, basketball, and track. In addition,

lily Pet Animals
BY LISBETH PICKRELL
Winner in City High Srlmol Erray Context
I am thinking back to the "ago's" when
expressionless dolls took on a vivid reality,
when lead soldiers rose to magnificent
heights and proudly marched across the rug
under the dining-room table, and the magic
strokes of twelve brought the animated quar-
rel of the Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat
Qwhich I often waited up to see but always
fell asleep beforej.
In his stuffed menagerie every imaginative
child .has a few favored toys which take on
a more nearly real existence than all others,
my loved ones were Beepee Pooh, Benjamin
Basset, and Nambly-why. Beepee Pooh was
a beautiful yellowish teddy-bear, his eyes
long gone, being the kind that had wires
that pulled out. His yellow fur ran in jag-
ged stripes due to long arduous hours of
"barber-shopping", he was crippled, and
minus one arm, giving him a rather unusual
appearance even for a teddy-bear. He was
on very Intimate Terms with Benjamin Bas-
set, a long, creepy, orange and purple snake
who slept with him and carried on "Inter-
esting Conversashunsu at night when I was
asleep. jimmy said he wasn't an animal, he
was a reptile, but on the Circus billboard
was a picture of one of his relatives and it
said "animal-trainer"g and animal he was
until the day we went swimming, but that's
ahead of my story.
Nambly-why was the last of the trio, his
original name being just Nambly, but he
made a funny noise which said, "why?
why?"-therefore the addition. Nambly
was a kind, white hobby-horse, his ears bat-
tered and shaggy because they served as
"holding-on-to's" during the wild exciting
rides when the flying miles of carpet became
too rough. His once regal tail was fastened
on with a piece of red grocery-string, but his
most striking feature was the wide green
stripe around each of his eyes, decorated one
day when my career was rocketing down the
paths of artistry. He was the most loved of
all the pets as he stayed by my bed in the
nursery every night and kept away the lions
and tigers that visited and devoured little
boys, especially when they were bad. When
rainy days came around, as rainy days will
do, and the soldiers refused to march in line,
and the tractor wouldn't run, I would go in
to Nambly-why and mount his lofty saddle
and ..... off to the lands of Tick-tock and
the Wizard of Oz, where King Arthur slew
dragons by the dozens, single-handed, and
the trees were covered with candied apples
that didn't .have all the candy cracked off
because it "makes you sick". Nambly and
I would talk over the mysteries of the glass
hills and princes and the sword trees and
the castles. But when we came near home
again, the fire would die out from his snort-
ing nostrils, he wouldn't prance or trot, and
.he wouldn't snort, but that was all right
and I understood, because he told me once,
very Privately, that if the Grown-ups knew,
they wouldn't let me go with him any more,
because they were afraid of dragons as they
didn't know how to approach one.
One day Nambly-why didn't feel very
wellg so Beepee Pooh and Benjamin and I
decided to go down the creek to the bridge
and take off our shoes and socks and go to
seas and pirates with the creek. We went
against nurse's orders, Nambly-why's pleada
ings, and the command of my "Inman" who
alx.ays says, "I told you so", when I do
things he says not to, which I always do as
he always says not to. Everything was fine
and dandy until Something Happened. By
that I mean some way or other, somebody
from somewhere slipped up behind me
while I wasn't looking and pushed me right
down in the creek! I turned around and
Benjamin had been behind me when I
leaned over. As I wiped the mud from my
new pants which werent very long as I
wasn't big enough yet, something mean
seemed to tell me that Benjamin deserved a
ducking. My "Inman" must have gone home
because nobody told me not to-
Mother said later that perhaps we could
put new cotton in him and paint him over,
but big purple tears ran down his face and
his tail was all orangy. I cried because I
sorta felt choked up and because being tied
to the bed-post where Nambly could look
at me with that "shouldn't have" look wasn't
very soothing, but it was his fault anyway
because he was sick and couldn't take care
Today I sympathize more with Benjamin
and I have a faint idea of who that some-
body was that pushed me ing but I know
Benjamin forgave me as I "really couldnt
tell", and maybe if more children had Nama
bly's and Benjie's and Pooh's, ducking ani-
mals would be against the law and "In-
man's" would take better care.
My animals are gone nowg they left to go
to the Place Wliere Animals Are Happiest,
and maybe today some little star-child is
sewing Nambly's tail, re-stuffing Benjie, and
giving Pooh hair tonic in spots.

Back ard Cats
BY MIIRRAY KRAMIiR
Backyard cats have found a friend at
last! Never will one single shoe, one load
of "buckshot," or one piece of the ill-favored
"wedding-gift" china disturb cats or kittens
from their nightly vocal aspirations in my
The whole cause for this decree started
about three weeks ago, when one evening
the air was particularly fouled with the
yodeling of the felines. It lacked about a
half hour of midnight, and I lay in my bed,
seized by a tremoring rage. "Darn those
cats! Some day I'd cram a boot down their
throats and they'll stop that yodelingf'
The "me-ows" and "ow-tts" grew louder
Screeches met blasts at mid-scale to form
one grand symphony. A chorus of half 1

the shoe left my hand. As it sped across
the infinite waste of twenty-five yards, I
stood, leering at the black forms. Suddenly
all "singing" ceased. Then came a peculiar,
twanging "mee-owr" like a distant wailing.
It was prolonged for about ten seconds.
Then it silently died away.
In an effort to discover the extent ot
damage wrought, I rushed out into the yard.
There lay a long, "scraggly" looking cat,
heaving occasional sighs. Beside it, like a
triumphant Napoleon in stately glory, stood
the boot, erect as a sentinel. In a flash I saw
what I had done. Witli a sigh, I sat down
beside the cat. Soon its feline relations re-
turned and softly, pitifully sang a funeral
dirge to accompany their friend to "cat-

I stayed out all that night, entranced by
their voices. It all resembled a "voodoo"
When the dawn slowly rose, they dis-
persed to spend the day at some other oc-
cupation. As I stood watching them go, I
made a promise to "cat-dom." They could
enter my yard, my home, even my very room,
and never would they be molested. No more
flying boots, no more chinaware to inter-
rupt them. I abhorred their music no longer.
The midnight ritual with them had instilled
a love of "me-owing" in me. In fact, I am
an addict. I must have cat music to sleep!

It helps me quite a lotg
When people are unfriendly,
I just pretend they're not.
When I have hurt my ankle,
And no one rescues me,
I pretend the reason is
That I um lost at sea.
Wlmen my game of golf is rotten,
And the tears would like to fall,
I think that I am playing well,
The troubles with the ball.
And so I keep on smiling,
Though things look very bad,
Sometimes I may look foolish,
But, then, I don't look sad.
If this perennial sunshine
Should fail me, and it might,
I'll feel a little girl again,
And hide way out of sight.

HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT
The bungalow of the Home Economics Department has
been the setting for many attractive affairs this year. The
bungalow has been made into a ,home-like little place
through the work of the clothing and foods classes. The
principles of decorating, arrangement of furniture, pre-
paring and serving meals have been put into practice by
the girls in their attractive work in the department.
Home Economics is one of the most important courses
now offered by the El Paso High School. There needs to
be developed in the minds of the young girls of today the
ambition to become good cooks and seamstresses.
Taken as a whole Home Economics forms one of the
most valuable as well as most pleasant elective courses
offered in the school.
The instructors in Home Economics are Mrs. Ruth Perry
and Mrs.. L. Hales.

Private Life of a Goldfish
With pen in hand fl mean, typewriterj, I pause on the threshold of this article to
look askance for ask anybody elsej at the title of this treatise ffor 'tis a treatj. A
goldfish, you see, hasn't any privacy at all except in the Nudist Colonies and there
they're all birds of a feather for is it fishes of a scale?j.
The first goldfish was a sardine that was served to King Midas for breakfast. His
name was Goldylocks and he was no relation to that dizzy blonde that got mixed up
with the Three Nudist fl mean the Three Bearsj. Now, Goldy fthat's what his Great-
aunt Susie called himj was a sort of an adventurous young lad fthe poor fishj and
when he felt old Midas' finger and saw himself going on the gold standard, he made a
New Year's Resolution. Viz: "No two-by-fours' King is going to guzzle me for
So Goldy led with his left, crossed with his right, and Midas ,hit the floor so hard
he's still bouncing. fMidas now has a job as bouncer in Lobby No. Zj.
Goldy fell in love with a chorus girl fa gold-diggerj and when the dust finally
settled, the goldfish race was off to a good start.
Long about 1900, old Goldy the had seen eighty summers and had been blind
the other twelvej kicked the bucket-I mean-the bowl. From then on the goldfish
people went to the dogs-that is-to the cats.
just before the war, goldfish began to reform, led by Ima Oldmaid, president of the
New Deal for Goldfish, Inc. falso Onions, Spinach, and Garlic, Inc.Q. First they began
asking for blinds to put on the bowls. Next, they got Prohibition and stopped drinking
fa lot of goldfish perished on account of thisj. Finally, they stop counterfeitingflol'
And so, my dear public, now the golden age of goldfish has reached the zenith of
posterity, the Utopia of business success, the very pinnacle of happiness. fThat sounds
as good as something I've read in 333 books. In fact, that's where I read itj.
:ft Midas wasn't so hot in them dar days. fThis is supposed to be a footnote but my feet hurrj.
TW In those days, you had to drop your goldfish to see if they rang right. You were liable to get
lead or zinc.
