OUT TO THE BALL GAME Hurrah for the professors, hurrah for U. Z. too, And if you are a Choctaw,— then you know the rest of the chant we chant when we are enchanted by a half-back or quarter-back breaking through. But most especially, on this occasion, hurrah for U. Z., surnamed Hathorn upon whom we sometimes vent our wrath and teases when we want a good sport to tease or vent or wrathorn. U. Z., however, is worthy of merit. Because his is one of the major sponsors of the major school spirit. I make this remark because you all know that he ' s sorta funny about money. But we really shouldn ' t criticize when we stop to think about it because among other monies that he takes is $15 for student activity, Which solves a number of problems throughout the year, the main one being that we need never miss a campus ball- game, even if the bread-line is in dangerous proclivity. For out of the $15 comes our tickets to all of the football games and basketball and just ball games in general, And we need never stop to reflect that we are traitors to the purple and white just because we spent our last fifty cents for animal vegetable or mineral. No stiff backbone do we need, no budget, no question of endurance At least, where campus ball-games are concerned, because U. Z., the nice man, has taken over and gives us the Stu- dent Activity Fee as insurance. Therefore we go to the football games and basketball games et al And U.Z. is our pal. Because it is through him that we have seen in action and color the people and passes that live again in the following pages in black and white; It is through him that we are able to share the thrills of the various games whether they be played in the afternoon or at night. It is he that sees that the uniforms are brought and lights are lighted and balls are put up safely after the game and likewise visiting teams So it seems That we are not amiss in proclaiming this to be A hurrah for U.Z. •Bail games were activities that were popular many years ago. " The nickname of a student in 1939 who was responsible for these " ball games. '

THE GREEKS HAD A WORD FOR MELVIN And the word, dear friends, was rushee, Which, being translated, means the person a freshman is for a few precious days when upperclass boys and girls are supper-swell to under-class boys and girls and often in the latter case, mushee. Melvin, being a nice kid, and knowing how to take girls for granted and respect senior men Got along fine during those days (except on the occasion when he politely smoked black cigars to the number often). Of course he was interested when informed that of one of the groups Columbus was the patron saint, And somewhat confused when a rival group informed him that he would probably hear that Columbus is an alumnus of the first group but to bear in mind that he ain ' t. Then the first group when questioned by Melvin brought out documents to prove it, And he made up his mind to pledge and when his mind was all settled the other bunch made up its collective mind to move it. So they took Melvin into a small back room and introduced him to a couple of other fellows And they talked and talked and talked, saying that after all who was Columbus— America had been discovered by the Vikings already, and that the Columbuses of the world were helpless unless diamonds were sold by the Isabellows. They said now you take Arnold McFee, that was a man for you. He founded our noble fraternity and if you will wear this little piece of plaid around your arm tomorrow, symbolizing that you are pledged to the clan of McFee, we will simply adore you. Then at last they let him go home and he sneaked in and didn ' t turn on the lights because he was afraid that he would wake up the kid brother of a chapter president who had already told everybody that he was going to carry on the family tradition and make his mark. So rather than hear any more Melvin went to bed in the dark And of all the luck he got in the wrong bed And woke up the kid brother of the chapter president, so he didn ' t get to go to sleep because along about dawn he had to go Alpha Beta Gamma instead.
