Here is the place where 1 first met with you,
Dear Freshman One, Dear Freshman Une.
Classmates I found that are loving and true,
Dear Freshman Une, Freshman One.
And it was there that our troubles arose,
We will come out tho, with Als at the close-
Then we must part with our true Normal braux,
Dear Freshman One, Freshman Une.
We all remember the D's that we made,
Dear Freshman Une, Dear Freshman One.
We hope in English to make a good grade,
Dear Freshman Une, Freshman One.
' Then to our History our eyes we will turn.
Nlusic for us was made easy to learn,
Then with the students we'll shine like the sun,
Dear Freshman One, Freshman One.
Sad to relate we all then have to part,
Dear Freshman Une, Freshman Une.
This will bring sadness and grief to our heart,
Dear Freshman One, Freshman One.
From the Dear Normal we go, shedding tears,
To hunt a school while trembling with fears,
Hoping to visit you in future years,
Dear Freshman Une, Freshman Une.

THE YUCCA VOL. III
f Qtlass 1908111 ---
ERE'S Freshman Two, and whatever we do,
We are young and want to learn,-
Don't criticize, be you ever so wise,
This poem o'er which our hearts yearn.
Ida McGee, your bright smile we see,
When Bennie's fiddle is played,
Ada knows English, though not a bit priggish,
The three many fears have allayed.
I-lcre's Helen Dyche. you can't help but like,
Nor Leita with her sweet face,
These two girls are genuine pearls,
Possessing both beauty and grace.
Davis so grand, there's none in the land,
Can him and Brogden defeat,
Happy is fate, when they rise to debate,
Their arguments can't be beat.
Horace a knight, with his honor so bright,
Has purity for his shield:
Williams in baseball, a captain so tall,
An influence for good does wield.
Another friend, may his triumphs ne'er end,
Is Blewett-at your command,
George Evans stands near, and is surely his
And both a.re truly grand.
Elizabeth and Mary are not contrary,
And in neatness do excel:
Of politeness and nerve, Bills has a reserve,
As his classmates know full well.
Cooper's a slave, though never a knave,
For Duty is his masterg
Mary C. and Virdie K. sweetly smile every
Their frowns would mean disaster.
With thoughtful brow, see Laura now:
Edna, rare beauty is thine,
Dear Bessie we see at work like a bee,
And Charles our orator fine.
1909 THE YUCCA
Vex-a's petite, like a rare Marguerite,
Ethel in wit does surpass:
Oliver B. a fine fellow is he,
And Isabel's a dear little lass.
For music clear, Mary Johns you should
And Maude very well does readg
Addie and .lackie May, as lovely as the day,
Are friends to all in their need.
True as steel, Frankie a compact will seal
With Lutie, beloved by allg
Lessons to learn, and no friends to spurn,
To be just to great and to small.
Hariett rare, you can match her nowhere,
Mamie is surely a belle:
Gallant and true, yes, Rogers, that's youg
Moore'll be a proud.Senior as well.
True quiet Borden, we count him a warden
Of truth, and honor and worth,
Grant we confess we must hazard a guess,
Is true as the star of the North.
Mattie does all-be it great or small-
The very best she can,
Nettie is pretty, Willie Mae is witty,
Bright Irma. is great to plan.
Anna and May a.re good friends and quite
And seeds of kindness have sowng
Smith is smart and will do his part,
While Gregory's knowledge is known.
Lucie a charmer, may no evil e'er harm her,
May her life be sweet as her songs:
One more is there, stately, graceful and fair,
Isora. will right all your wrongs. ,
Dear Freshman Two, we fondly love you,
Though we know that your race is throughg
Nineteen-nine, you will be like old wine,
So adieu, friends and classmates, adieu.

102 THE' YUCCA V01 III
Freshman Five Class
l'fRli'S to the members so noble and grand,
Of the Nineteen-hundred-nine Freslunan Five Band.
We've had many pleasures, we've had many fears
And often our failures have caused many tears.
,But cheer up, ye pilgrims, and look to the goal,
For soon we'll be Seniors with our classmate Cole.
Among those struggling onward and found in front
Are Garner, Peters, Jonses, Hamilton and Frank.
Pendleton and Brecden, Gardener, Holman, and 'Feel
Progress with their lessons as slick as an eel.
One day in Science, in bird study we engaged,
Biggs and Lourie moved us to laughter by "Chl n
The English constructions, so tricky to see,
'e want a Cage "
They are puzzles to Perkle, who says "My failure they'll beg"
But Alsup so eager his knowledge to impart,
Blushed quickly and said, "l know them hy heart."
The debates led by Corley, Derryberry and Zinn
Showed their intentions of victory to win,
Answered by Oldham, Boatswright and Huff,
lvlade the rejoinder brilliant enough.
Brewer and Lester, Hodges and Sloan,
To consider the question were left all alone.
A tie, the decision was given to Chaplain Brice,
Then Smith offered the suggestion, "Let's settle with
Of our History students whose praises we sing
Are Ingram, Grilhth, Stewart and King,
Lamb and Culley great knowledge impart,
Also Bearce and Fritz, Budd, Ghant and Hart.
And now, fellow students, in our struggle for fame
Let us ever be loyal to the dear Normal's name,
And ever remember this noble Freshman Five Band
And our earnest teachers, the best in the land.

To PROMOTE interest in public speaking among the young men of

men, as we have heretofore, who uphold the reputation of the school
as a winnerg to bring the two companion societies into closer touch
with each other, utilizing that truism, "In union there is strength,"

members along lines of true manhood, this is the purpose of the Ora-
This organization has had the honor of meeting twice in joint
debate with the association of our sister institution, the Southwest
Texas State Normal, and also enjoyed the double distinction of win-
ning each time.
This year, on April 3, for the third debate the two schools met to
discuss the question, "Resolved, That an Amendment to the Consti-
tution of Texas, providing for the Optional Initiative and Referendum
Applicable to all Laws, is to the best interest of the People."

Of Chastain and Wilson we've a' few words to say:
They'll remember this tennis forever and a day.
. . Now, Virginia is a "dandy," and her genial smile - .
MM Can be seen like Henry's laugh can be heard for half a mile. H00
We'll leave it to them-they would prefer it that way.
Of Clarence, we say he smiles on the Good and the just:
And Mary would rather not play but will if she must.
About Potter and Good, we have little to say:
In some way remind us of somebody's marriage.
And when for a partner, our Robert did hunt
He found this fair Tinnie who could do the right stunt.
About Lowry and Brooks, there is much to be said:

composed of forty-five male students, was organized September 30, 1908, for the pur-
pose of protecting the State's property and the boarding houses in the vicinity of the
school. The company was formed under the direction of the manager of the Athletic de-
partment of the College and the Chief of the city fire department. The following officers
were elected for the first year: J. B. Jackson, Chiefg J. T. Milam, First Assistantg F. A.
Ashmore, Second Assistant, R. B. Bigham, Secretary, G. F. Wimberly, Assistant Secre-
tary and Treasurer.
.The apparatus of the company consists of a hand hose cart, about seven hundred
feet of hose, and a full equipment of nozzles and wrenches. The entire equipment was
generously donated by the city.
Tl1e proinptness of the boys to report for duty when the fire alarm sounds, is com-
mendable and shows the loyalty of the members to their organization and school. Some
of the fires attended during the year were the High School building, the Cottage Hotel,
and other minor fires. The company by itsuntiring efforts has won the cornmendation
of the President and Faculty of the school and the respect and recognition of the City

1909 THE 159
Told by a Campus Bench
OR several days after school began, no one paid any attention to me, and
I had begun to feel very jealous of my fellow campus-benches, when
one day two young men came over to me and sat down. They were
discussing their classmates. Une, whom the other called jack, said,
"My goodness, Abe, isn't that new girl who came in yesterday a stun-
"Yes, she's a pretty good looker. Did you understand her name ?"
"Amy Carlton, from Brighton. You can bet, old Slow Nlotion,
that I havenlt formed the habit yet of letting anything about a good-
looking girl escape me, especially her name. Iim glad the Junior work
is so easy for me, because I like to have time to enjoy all the beauties that the institu-
tion affords. And from my present observations, Miss Carlton is the prettiest, little,
pink and white peach blossom I've seen since coming here. Now, go on with your
free lecture course, Abe Smith."
"She is pretty, but for your own sake, Jack Hancock, you'd better go slowly, for
the work won't be as easy for you a little later as it is now, and girls take such a lot
of time. What do you think of our English teacher and all that English work that
the Seniors are prophesying will fall to our lot? Time enough for girls? I doubt it."
With this the talk drifted off to a discussion of the different teachers, a theme
I'd heard discussed from all points of view until I knew each one by heart, and I soon
fell asleep. I was awakened after some time by two girls. I looked out to see who
they were, and discovered a brunette, who, although not pretty, had such an air of
refined quietness and good sense, that I began immediately to ilike her. The other
was such a veritable "pink and white peach blossomi' that I decided she must be the
girl who had been the topic of the conversation I had heardearlier in the day.
The blonde broke the silence by saying, "Look, Margtierite, there goes that
countrified-looking jake, Abraham Smith. Isn't that fi name for you?" And I looked
towards the college and saw one of the participants of the early conversation walk over
to another of the benches with a book in his hand.
"It is a very queer name, but I never knew a person to have one that suited him
better. He just looks 'Abraham Sm'ithy.' "
"That,s the truth," answered lVIiss Carlton, "and he doesn't seem to have any
more sense than he has looks. Isn't he timid, and doesn't he act funny when he's
called on to recite in class? He and Mr. Hancock seem to be very good friends,
though. By the way, Mr. Hancock certainly was nice to me today at dinner. I'm
crazy about him. He wears such nice clothes."
160 THE YUCCA VOL. III
"Yes, I noticed him talking to you. He paid a good deal of attention to me
before you came, but you seem to have cut me out. However, I don't careg because
he's so silly and thinks too much of himself."
"Oh, I do. I believe it's 'sour grapes' with you, for I don't see how you could
want a fellow to be nicer."
"No, Amy, you may be sure it's not 'sour grapes,' for I haven't time to fool with
boys as you do. Anyway, you know I've never seen a boy yet that suited me exactly.
They're all too silly, stupid, ugly, or too something. I really wish I could fall in love
once, but I suppose such is not my destiny, and that I'll live and die an old maid, with-
out even a romance."
"NIarg, you're a queer girl, and I don't see why I like you, but I do. Colne on,
let's walk. I'm tired of sitting still so longf'
"Oh, I ought to go over this history again, for she's sure to call on me today."
"Oh, come on. You know you know your lesson. You always do." And they
After this, for a long time, I always saw the girls at a distance, and, usually, Mr.
Hancock would stroll along with themg but his friend, Abe Smith, was evidently too
busy to while away his time so foolishly. Gradually, Marguerite began being seen
with them less and less often, and I could see that she was not missed.
Things had been going on like this until one day Mr. Hancock and Amy came
to me and sat down to complete a conversation already begun. As they seated them-
selves, Amy said, "And, Mr. Smith? He was absent, too. Is he sick ?" Her tone
implied a badly-concealed interest.
Her companion, who seemed to be in a very bad humor, demanded, rather testily,
"Amy, what makes you always notice Abe Smith? He doesn't care a rap about any
girl that I know of, and here am I, just crazy over you, and you're always thinking of
him. Why don't you stop it? Why--"
"Now, there you go again, Jackg I've just had plenty of that. You know I don't
care anything about Mr. Smith. Youlre just jealous, that's what you are. And I'm
tired of 'having you always saying that I'n1 in love with him. I'm not. And I think
you're horrid to say that he doesn't care a thing about me." With this she began
crying, and when Jack tried to comfort her, she ,sent him away angrily.
just then Marguerite and Smith came around the corner of the house, from the
direction of the tennis courts with their racquetsg but when I looked at Abraham
Smith's homely, but open face, I knew that tennis was only a pretense. Marguerite
hurried up to console her friend: but Smith, who saw that his services were not needed,
left them alone. Marguerite blushed quite prettily when Amy recited the cause of her
quarrel with Mr. Hancock: but blushed harder when her friend wound up by saying
that she despised Jack Hancock, but had changed her mind about Mr. Smith, and no
longer thought him "tacky', and "countrified." He was so queer, though, that he
didn't pay a "speck" of attention to any girl, and Jack, the hateful thing, said that he
didn't care a thing for anybody. "Now, don't you think he does, Marguerite P" finished
Marguerite answered rather absent-mindedly, "I don't know, dear."
The next day Amy came out by herself to study, and Jack came over to where
she was and sat-down and their quarrel was patched up.
IQOQ THE YUCCA 161
During the winter months, I saw very little of my friends, but on the first pretty
day the four came out togetl1er. I soon saw how things stood. Hancock was tagging
after Amy, who was Huttering around lVIr. Smith. And he, in turn, never took his
eyes off Marguerite, the only one of the group who didnlt seem to care. Things drifted
on until late in the spring, and the only time that Smith and Hancock seemed to reach
the heighth of happiness was when the latter, on very rare occasions persuaded Amy to
go over to another bencl1 and "study" with him. It was at these times that Abe
seemed to forget the warning he had given his friend earlier in the season, and would
dawdle away just as much time as the cold-hearted lyiarguerite would allow him.
But he was too "slow" and his sweetheart was, seemingly, too indifferent, and I saw
that with these drawbacks and Amy's interruptions ffor she evidently considered every-
thing Ufair in love and war," and did not hesitate to break in on tl1eir conversation on
every occasion, and at very inopportune times for Abel that I'd have to do something
to help my friends out. Once when .lack had taken Amy out to see something new
about the tennis courts, I decided that my time had come, at last, to help. So when
Smith sat down beside lVIarguerite, I simply lifted up one end, and dumped him off,
and Marguerite right into his arms. This had the desired effect, for l1is tongue was
From this time on, Amy seemed to make even less headway than ever with Smith,
by her coquettish airs, and, at last, realized that she had no room for hope. This was
probably the first time in her life that she had not gotten wl1atever sl1e really wished
for enough to use all her powers to obtain. And she showed l1er disappointment and
spitefulness, a few days before school was out, by remarking to her friend, "NIarguerite
Fernaugh, you're in love with Abraham Smith, yourself. And you needn't pretend
any longer that youlre not. lfveryone can see for himself that you are. All tl1e girls
are talking about l1ow 'lovified' you all act. And, Jack, his best friend, says that he
was never ,known to care for any girl, and that he doesn't think he ever will. So I
don't see why you need to care so much about himf'
"Well, Amy dear, I hope you are mistaken about his not caring, for live changed
my mind about being an old maid, and promised him, only last night, to go back to his
father's farm with him and keep house. You know his father died last January, and
left his mother entirely alone on the old place, so we'll have to go to take care of her
and the old homestead."
I saw little of lVIarguerite and her lover, but I had many opportunities to observe
Amy's tactics with Hancock. She made him think that she had never cared about
anyone else except him. And he seemed to flatter l1imself greatly that his Charms had,
at last, won over the girl he loved. However, schiool came to an end too soon for me
to say whether or not they married, but l hardly think they did, for Amy was too
fickle to care for him long.

see the old-time teacher yet,
His towering form, his gracious size,
And truly one could not forget
The sternness written in his eyes.
Well-worn and rusty is his coat,
Unkempt and shaggy is his hair,
A kerchief knotted 'bout his throat,
Perchance, doth add a homlier air.
I see him nodding in his chair
Beside the bright fire blazing highg
To move or speak no urchins dare
Lest dreams reveal it to his eye-
Lest puffs of smoke which to their harm
The wind sweeps down the chimney near,
linvelop him like conjurer's charm
And bear their whispers to his ear.
I see the old-time teacher yet,
Perhaps some urchin drops a book,
I see him start, his ferule get,
And melt that urchin with a look,
1 see him stalk across the room,
His hand behind his waistcoat clasp,
While, quaking in my boots, that one
I see him by the coat-tail grasp.
I hear the lessons all conned o'er
With eager zeal as he stands by,
At first, in accents soft and low,
Again, in voices shrill and high.
And drowziness creeps through the room
And mingles with the firelight's glow,
Which lengthens out the shadows of
The little figures in a row.
1 see the old-time teacher yet,
When Spring first haunts the woods and fields,
Propped in his chair, he ne'er forgets
The awe-inspiring power he wields.
Nor does he seem to know or care
That out of doors the sunheams fall,
That in the treesiare birds' nests rare,
Within are those who heed their call.
I see the old-time teacher yet,
He's pictured now with kindlier eye,
For time has helped me to forget-
To lay the sterner memories hy.
And as in quaint, fantastic dream
Of one in olden story told,
In mind and heart, his virtues gleam
As though he were a knight of old.

"and you are sure the hat can be delivered this afternoon?"
"Oh, yes," the milliner assured her, "although it may be late, in
fact, very late. But we have never yet disappointed any of our cus-
tomers, and I am sure you will get it in time."
.-.l "Very well, thank you," replied Adriana most cheerfully, although
she was very much disappointed that the hat was not already finished, for she had
ordered it the first of the week and fully expected that it would have been ready before.
Then she hurried from the millinery department, out where

if had gone wrong that day. She felt sure that

f morrow. t was so nice to- oo on t e ar
"W ji" K '1 'gif side of things just once in a While, any way.
Z W ' She was quite glad when the letter came from
I, i QI, Jack, at noon, saying that it was impossible for him to be with her
ij J Easter, for it helped to make things just a little bit worse and gave
her something worth while to worry about. Not that she cared so
much about 'his coming. She could get along just as well without
him and would probably not even miss him.
lj! When she reached the College, Molly King came running to meet
lx her with the most enchanting news Ceverything is enchanting in
ff lVIolly's eyes just after she has had a letter from a certain onej. "Now,
w . .
.32 Adriana," she began, "of course, you can guess what the news is.
'QA ' Don't you think it is lovely that we are allowed to have company
- gy once a year, anyway? Anna told me you were expecting Jack-but
what about your old hat, dear?
"Oh, she promised to send it, of course," replied Adriana absently, for she was
not thinking of the hat, and didn't care whether it came at all or not. She had just
happened to think that maybe it was the other girl who was keeping Jack.
So when the clock struck twelve that night, and the hat had not yet come, it
made little difference to Adriana, although she knew there was no hope of getting it
1909 THE YUCCA 169
now. For nothing in the way of a purchase was allowed to be received at the College
on Sunday, no matter on what account it had been delayed. Nevertheless, it was some
satisfaction to her to take to pieces all of her old hats, so that they could no longer
be worn, and thus she would have an excuse for absenting herself from the service
next morning, for it was not her intention to appear in an old hat on Easter, when
she knew all the other girls would have new ones.
Yet, when the morrow came and everything without was so fresh and bright,
when all things were affected by the first warm impulses of spring, Adriana was almost
sorry that she had determined to stay at home. She knew, too, that the service at
the cathedral would be very beautiful, and-what was probably more import to her-
that she would miss seeing the Easter hats and gowns. But it was too late to mend
matters now, so she slowly made her way up to the President's room to offer her
excuses-since this was a requirement. Now, she stood somewhat in awe of little
lVIiss IVIilton, although she was a most harmless looking perso-nage. But the soft gray
hair which clung in heavy masses about her temples and the clear blue eyes seemed
to signify to the girls a most determined type of grave austerity. So in spite of the
fact that Adriana had planned a nice little speech for the occasion, when she came
into the very presence of that lady, nothing but the truth could come out.
"No hat to wear, my child," said Mliss Milton quietly, at the same time glancing
curiously at Adriana, for in her mind that young lady was not above suspicion. "Wl1y,
certainly, that is too bad. But I can manage that for you since there is mine right
there on the bed, and as I do not feel able to go out this morning you will not incon-
venience me in the least if you wear it. To be sure it is not right new, but I had Miss
Rodney to freshen it up with a rose, and now it is just to my taste."
Adriana glanced toward the bed on which lay the Easter bonnet, a little old
fashioned bit of lace and silk with the pink rose nestling in the midst and the velvet
strings to be tied under the chin. Then she turned to Miss Milton and stared.
And then Adriana tried to treat the matter as a joke, but there was no sign of a
twinkle in Miss Milton's eye, and there seemed to be a certain finality about it all
when llliss llflilton picked up the bonnet and laid it in her hands with the remark,
"There, take it, dear." '
Of course Adriana took it. That very minute there popped into her head some-
thing that lldiss Milton had once said to one of the other girls about her-that she
was one of the most polite and thoroughly well bred girls to be found anywhere and
it behooved her now to live up to the opinion Miss Milton had formed of her. So
with a grateful air and a smile that was not hard to summon, owing to the ludicrous
situation, Adriana thanked Miss Milton most charmingly so that a pleased expression
crept over her face and a tender light into her eyes that ever after remained 'in Adriana's
conception of her.
When Molly King issued forth from her room dressed in her best she found
Adriana at the head of the stairway arrayed in her new Easter dress and-
"Adriana Ellis, what on earth is that you have on your head ?" she called out.
"Sh-h-hi" warned Adriana for Miss Milton was at the far-end of the hall.
But as they went down the steps, arm in arm, Molly heard the whole story from her
friend, and after excessive giggling was able to be reconciled to the oddity of the head-
The teachers who were to chaperone the crowd of girls to the Cathedral must

evidently have thought that a stray sheep had wandered into their flock when Adriana
in her Easter bonnet appeared among the rest, but explanations were made on the
sly and a wave of amusement swept through the crowd of which the one causing it
tried to appear wholly unconscious.
But it became rather embarqrassing when she entered the church and all eyes were
turned, as far as decency would allow, to scan the group of fashionably dressed young
ladies from St. Elizabeth's. Why had she worn this miserable little bonnet, anyway?
Once seated in the pew she tried to console herself with the remembrance of the
pleasure it was giving lVIiss llflilton for her to be wearing the bonnet, but even this did
not make her unaware of the wondering looks and curious smiles she was receiving
from different members of the congregation. After all desperation had driven her to
take this step, and Jack had driven her to desperation. She felt that, in a way, she
was spiting him, although just how, she could not have explained in any possible man-
ner. Nevertheless she liked to think it.
Whei1 the people began to pour out after the service was over, Adriana hung back
as long as she could do so, and then tried to lose herself in the crowd. But when she
had at last reached the doorway and the steps beyond, some one seized her hand, and,
turning, she saw Jack-Jack with a number of his university friends all waiting to
be introduced to the girl about whom they had heard so much. And to be sure, they
were not disappointed in Jack's "little friend,'l for Adriana made a pretty picture lean-
ing against the ivy-covered pillar of the Cathedral, her eyes shining with happiness
and the breeze fanning her hot cheeks into a brighter glow, while the little bonnet
only served to add a quaint charm to her appearance. At least Jack thought so.
"You are a wonder todayfl he whispered, as he walked with her to the car. "Is
this the Easter hat you wrote me about? It is the most becoming thing I ever saw
you wear." And, promising to see her again that day, he left her.
"Men are queer things," mused Adriana when she had at last reached the College
and had taken off the bonnet which, with many a loving little pat, she laid away until
it could be returned to its owner. "I wonder why they can not discriminate between
such widely different specimens as an old ladyls bonnet and a young girls hat."

How Sandy Broke the Hoodoo
ITTISR, indeed, were the thoughts that ran through "Sandy" Carter's
mind, as he dressed himself in his football suit, in preparation for the
annual Thanksgiving game, which was to be played that afternoon
between lns own college, the I. C. U., and their greatest rivals, the
Gatesville Military Academy. Sandy had first intended not to go upon
J the field in uniform today, on account of his disgrace in the last two
games. It was, indeed, humiliating to his proud spirit to be lowered from a "regular"
on the Varsity team, to the position of a "sub," and he knew this was all due to a
strange hoodoo which seemed to have taken possession of him. Up until the last two
games, Sandy had been the star half-back of the eleven, but in these games, just as he
had had a chance to make a brilliant play, right at the critical moment, it seemed a
strange fear had seized him, and he had faltered, and had failed. This feeling Sandy
couldn't explain, for naturally, he knew no fear, and on these occasions there was no
greater risk than he had run a hundred times before. Yet, unexplainable as it was, the
fact remained that he had acted rather queer and seemed to have been afraid. Each
time he had had to quit the game after this, for when he tried to rise, he had been so
weak and trembling that he could not stand without aid. After the first occurrence,
the captain had -let him keep his position, thinking that perhaps he had been sick, but
when the same thing had happened a second time, when a little nerve would have won
the game, they had .decided that he just had a streak of yellow in him, and were afraid
to risk him in a game, so important as this one, and so had practiced another man in his
position, ordering him to report as utility. These things engendered a feeling of con-
tempt for him among the students, and he had been taunted as being a coward, by some
of the thoughtless rooters of the college, and then, what hurt worse than all was when
Kate Marlow had "cut" him rather coolly when he had asked her for her company to
the ball, which was to be Thanksgiving night. This was the first time she had ever
refused him since their acquaintance at the first of school, and it hurt Sandy to think
that she would go back on him. And so it had been with his other friends, they had
slowly dropped away, until only his room-mate, Charley Dowell, was left loyal. As
Sandy slowly donned his suit, he thought over all these things, and vowed to vindicate
himself today, if they would only give him a chance.
It nearly broke Sandy's heart that evening when the team lined up for the kick-off,
and left him sitting on the bench: The whistle blew and the game started amid the
cheers of the rooters of the opposing teams. The two teams were about evenly
matched, and for a while neither side was able to score. It seemed to Sandy that he
saw a dozen places he could have made runs or gotten tackles if he had only been in
1909 THE YUCCA 173
his regular place. The man who had been substituted in his position was a good
player, but from lack of experience, was unable to start off just right, and .do a hundred
other things which only experience will teach. 'When the opponents would make a
gain, Sandy could hardly hold himself, and at last when they scored on a field goal,
Sandy ran to the coach and begged him to let him go in, but the coach refused, saying,
"I don't know that you could do any better, if you were put in." The first half ended
and the score stood, Gatesville, 45 I. C. U., nothing. Again Sandy asked for a chance,
but was a second time refusedf This seemed to Sandy unfair, and he determined
that, as much as he wanted a chance to help his team win, and 'also redeem himself,
if they wanted him to play after that, they would have to come to him.
The second half started about the same as the first, the ball shifting from one side
to the other, but neither making any great gains. This was kept up until only five
more minutes remained to play, and every one thought the game would end with the
score four to nothing. At this time the man who had taken Sandy's place was in-
jured, and had to be taken out. Again Sandy started to the coach, but stopped, saying
to himself that if they wanted him, they would ask him. Then he saw Charley, his
room-mate leave the coach and start towards him on a run. He came up panting,
and catching Sandy by the shoulder, said, "Sandy, they have agreed to give you another
chance. Come on, Kid, and show 'em what you can do."
Sandy threw off his sweater and grabbing Charley's hand said, 'Tll tryf' Then he
trotted out upon the field and took his regular place.
Several short gains were made by I. C. U., and they advanced the ball to the
Gatesville's -thirty-yard line. The three minute time had been called, and only one
minute remained to play. Sandy whispered something to the quarter, and the quarter,
willing to try anything to win, agreed to his play. T'hey formed as if for a place
kick, but instead of kicking, the full-back threw the ball to Sandy, who had changed
places with the end. Sandy received the pass and sped off down the field. He dodged
the quarter-back and sped on, with only the full, who was playing behind the goal line
for a kick, to stop him., The grandstand sat breathlessly watching, for the entire
game depended on whether he could get by the full-back or not. Up until this, Sandy
had had his old time grit, but now, as he neared the full-back, with only a few more
feet to the good, he felt his hoodoo coming on. He seemed to be getting suddenly
weak, and thought he could never make it.
At this instant he caught a glimpse of Kate, standing in a carriage on the side line.
Her quick eye had seen the pall of fear seize him, and on her lips was a slight sneer,
while it seemed to Sandy that there was a challenge in her eye. This one glance
acted on Sandy like an electric current, and his fear was gone as quick as it had come.
With redoubled strength he sprang forward, and met the big full-back only four feet
from the goal line. When they clashed, both stopped short, and they stood there for
a second, each straining every muscle to throw the other back. By sheer will power,
174 THE YUCCA Vol.. III
Sandy made another lunge, and they fell to the ground. -lust as they hit, Sandy
heard the whistle blow, and a cheer came to him faintly, as if from a great distance.
Then all was dark.
Six hours later, Sandy woke up in his bed, with Charley sitting beside him. His
first words were, "How was the game, Charley?l'
"Five to four, Sandy, and you are the hero of the day."
A look of relief came over Sandy's freckled face, and he murmured, "I guess my
hoocloo is gone, then." Then noticing the bandages on his side he continued, "What's
the damage here ?"
"'l'hree ribs broke, but the Doctor says you'll come 'round soon," said Charley.
'lOh, well, I donlt mind that, so long as they won't think I'm a coward any moref'
Then Sandy closed his eyes and went back to sleep.

A white sun-bonnet with a ruffle fluted fine
Was hanging so gayly on a long clothes line,
When along came a boy with head on mischief bent,
And, in that white sun-bonnet, made a great big rent.
The same sun-bonnet with a ruflle fluted fine
VVas seen, an hour hence, on the same clothes line,
By the self-same boy, with head on mischief bent,
Who thought, to have some fun, he'd make another rent.
But the maid, who owned that bonnet with ruffle fluted fine,

Then the boy felt sad and not on mischief bent
As he saw in whose bonnet he'd made the great big rent.
When the maid saw that bonnet with ruffle fluted fine,
Which was swinging so gayly on the long clothes line,
Sobbingly, she said to the boy on mischief bent:
"You have ruined my bonnet. See that great big rentll'
Then the boy-not the bonnet with ruflle fluted fine-
Was hanging 'round the maid-not the long clothes line.
His head, this time, was not on mischief bent,
But trying to apologize for the great big rent.

The Reveries of a Willow Chair
HAT strange and inconsistent creatures Normal students are, anyway!
I have been rocking them for a good many years flong enough 'to have
gained some experiencel and I have never known one but was queer.
l.. Why do they always set the alarm clock for five in the morning and
75 YF YF then place it in a chair close to the bed so that the minute it begins to
ring they can reach out, turn it off, and go back to sleep again-which
they invariably do. This has puzzled me more than almost any thing else that they
do. What can be their object in setting the clock? They don't do it because they
like to hear it ring, for they immediately turn it off. They don't do it because they
want to get up early, for they never leave their beds until breakfast time. It seems to
he one of those puzzles to which you can't End out the answer.
Why do they always load my back with clothes when there are two trunks, a
box, a dresser, and a closet in the room?
And why. Oh, why! do they grumble and complain at having to sit up so late
studying every night and then on Saturday and Sunday sit up later, with a new maga-
zine or book, than they ever do over their lessons?
And note books-I have watched the students that have boarded in this room
closely, and they are all of a kind in the manner in which they keep their note books.
They wait until the last minute, and then sit up all night filling it with notes. Then
they take it to school. In a few days they bring it back, toss it on the table, and never
look at it again. I wonder if this is their way of having a little fun. Once a student
brought back his book marked-Good, faithful work-and he told it as a good joke
to every one who came to see him. But I don't know whether it's always a joke or not
for most of the students bring back books which read: Not full enough, or condense
rather than omit, and this always makes them angry. But may be it's a joke and they
don't see the point. This usually makes people angry.
And why do students think they can't concentrate on a lesson unless they are in a
rocking chair? The harder they concentrate, the harder they rock. This is especially
bad during examinations. I fear that I shall not be able to survive many more ex-
aminations. If they are as wearing and tearing on the teachers as they are on us
rocking chairs and the students, I wonder why they are not abolished.

Y MORTAL friends of every sort,
A Senior's tale I tell,
A girl to whom, as you shall learn,
A sad, sad fate befell.
In Senior Two, there was a girl,
Of whom the stu-dents said,
That she was not a fickle friend,
But true and tried instead.
She had a kind and gentle heart
To comfort all the sadg
A pair of brown and laughing eyes,
That charmed a handsome lad.
But in this school, a girl called Bess,
Who was on mischief bent,
Declared the boy was courting her-
She courted him, she meant.
Before the pique, these girls were friends,
But when the Senior learned
That in her way this rival stood,
Her love to anger turned.
Bess and the Senior grew to hate
Each other with a zeal
That duelists in other days
'Were hardly known to feel.
But soon a bold announcement came,
That quelled this useless strife,
lt was that Ned, the gallant lad,
Had married him a wife.
And now my friends of every sort,
Lest you fall in the snare,
This warning take: "Before you cook,
You first must catch a hare."

ound 011 a Street Car
N the way to his office, Harry Dudley hailed a Broadway car and lightly
swung himself upon the platform. lfntering the car he sat down and
began to scrutinize his fellow-passengers. Dudley was an orphan,
- young, good-looking and rich. After finishing his course at Harvard,
he had returned to Pine Bluff, his old home town, and there had established himself
as a lawyer.
This morning he was wishing for something to happen, when glancing down at
his feet, he was greatly surprised to see a gold locket lying open, near him. Stooping
over he picked up the locket, and looked for a long time at the pictured face of a young
girl which showed singular sweetness and beauty. Finally he turned the locket over
and saw engraved on one side the initials, M. O. VV.
"She's a beautyll' Harry told himself enthusiastically, regarding the smiling face
with delight for several minutesg then a cloud passed over his face. "I guess you're
married," he grumbled inaudibly to the Lady of the Locket: "all the nice girls are.
No doubt your amiable spouse will advertise for your locket today. However, I shall
keep this till the very last moment, regardless of the fact that you may be another
man's wife." He slipped the locket into his breast pocket, and left the car. He was
busy all morning with a very important case, and the locket was soon forgotten. He
left the office to go to luncheon and was hurrying down Nlain street when he heard
his name called. Turning to see who had called him, he was delighted to find rapidly
approaching his former room-mate, Dick Worthington.
"Dick Worthington, by all thatls holyll' joyfully exclaimed Harry. "VVhat on
earth are you doing here ?"
When Dick had somewhat recovered from the embrace Harry had given him, he
said: "lVIy youngest, and only unmarried, sister and I are here visiting one of our
aunts, lVIrs. Galbraith. You've heard me speak of Aunt Hallie, 1'm sure," he went
on. 'Tm going to take you right up to her house now for l told her I intended look-
ing you up and bringing you home with me." There was so much the boys had to say
to one another that Harry accepted Dick's invitation with pleasure.
They finally reached the home of lVIrs. Galbraith, who immediately won Harryls
heart by her sweet, old-fashioned ways. just a few minutes before time for luncheon,
Matlde VVorthington entered the room. As soon as Harry saw her, he gave a start,
and stared at her in amazement. Then he pinched himself to see if he were awake,
for before him stood his "Lady of the Locket." He was immediately overcome by the
rudeness of his conduct, but soon regained his composure. Dick introduced his chum
to his sister, and soon afterwards luncheon was announced. The meal passed off very
180 THE YUCCA Vol.. III
pleasantly and Harry soon had his companions laughing merrily at some of the inci-
dents of his travels in South Africa.
VVhen the two men were ready to start down town, Maude detained Dick long
enough to ask if he had gotten her locket mended.
"VVhy I -ah-to tell you the truth, Maude, I lost that confound-er-that
locket, I mean. I intended to see about advertising for it this morning, but met Harry
and I was so much overjoyed that I forgot all about the locket. I'm really awfully
sorry, little sister, but I'm sure we .shall get it hack again. You know I've lost it
three times before and have always gotten it back." After reassuring the girl he
turned to join his friend, who had walked on slowly.
"I'm in the middle of a bad fix," Dick told his friend. Last summer when
Nlaude went abroad she left me her locket with a picture of herself in it. Yesterday
she asked me for it, and I told her I would have the catch mended and give it to her.
Now I've lost it," he finished gloomily.
"Cheer up, Dickie, old boy, I have the locket. I found it on the street car this
morning on my way down town. VVhen your sister came into the room, I immediately
recognized her as the original of the picture in the locket and I was so surprised that
I could do nothing but stare at her. I was awfully tickled to find she wasn't married,"
Harry said dreamily.
Dick laughed in his relief and said, "Hadn't you ever seen Maude before ?H
"No," Harry answered, "she was always away at boarding school when I visited
you, and you remember how you used to regret not having a picture of 'little sister., I
should certainly like to have the picture out of the locket as a-a-rewardf'
Dick referred him to Maude, who promptly refused his request. However, three
months later Harry had a beautiful picture of Maude on his dresser, and Maude had
a lovely diamond ring on the third finger of her left hand.

she goes right froo de fence!"
Uncle Josh quickly set down the pail of milk he was carrying and ran after her.
She went straight toward the corniieldg and with her head high in the air, was soon
far ahead of him.
He followed her until he was almost exhausted and gave up the race, leaving
Betsy to spend the night feasting on the green corn.
He had no more than entered the house, when Aunt Hannah began: "Joshua
Jenkins, ef yo, don't sell dat crittter, darill soon be nufiin' lef' on dis place what's not
to'n to smash. It 'nears to me fo'se had 'nuff trouble wid her to be willin' to gib her
Uncle Josh turned toward her and answered, rather meekly: "But Hannah,
I'se not gwine let a cow go for a little ob nufiin', what's got a pedigree like dat Betsy's
got. Dat cow wuz once owned by .ledge Hopkins, and her mudder wuz a thorough-
bred Je'sy." A
Aunt Hannah made no reply, but murmured as she went about her work, "Law
mel At de foolishness ob men."
Time passed on, but Betsy's behavior grew no better. She broke into the garden
one day and destroyed most of the cabbages and peas. Aunt Hannah looked out one
morning and saw the clothes which she had left on the line the evening before, all
chewed to pieces. Of course she accused Betsy of the deed, in spite of Uncle joshis
argument that he guessed it was HDat old black muly ob Bill Jones's," did it.
The next depredation she undertook was to break into the hen-house. She scared
the hens from their nests and ate the hay of which the nests were made. Of course in
doing this, she broke the eggs. Uncle Josh was vexed with her for this outbreak, but
his anger was not fully aroused against her until a few weeks later.
He was ploughing cotton one day and chaneed to look in the direction of his
watermelon patch. He saw Betsy fast devouring both vines and melons. He took
his mule from the plow, got on the animal and tried to drive the cow to the gate. As
usual, she went the way she wanted to and that was toward the creek. Uncle Josh

was angry, but he thought of the quicksand in the creek bottom, and tried his best to
head Betsy away from it. But to his sorrow, he saw her plunge into the water and
sand. She tried to wade across, but soon sank almost up to her neck.
I-le hurried to his neighbor's to get him to aid him, but when they reached the
creek, Betsy was snorting and plunging beneath the water, and before they could get
her out, she was drowned.
When Uncle Josh returned to the house and told Aunt Hannah, she was grievedg
but she could not forbear saying, "VVell, Joshua, 1 ,spect de next time 1 urges yo to

N the shore of N- Bay, near one of our Southern cities, was an old boat
that had been east aside by some fishermen, Having been turned on
its side, it still remained in this position, and was nearly filled with sand
. -'i,.-..... and small, white shells, that the high tides had washed into it.
In this attractive spot, on a summer's afternoon, a young girl, Ida IVIason, sat

N , --I found that it was a book entitled "The

,X--. 1 I . been left there by some one, and she was

X 1 i was growing late, and a dark cloud was forming in the southwest. She
felt almost sure that it would rain during the night, if the book re-
mained there it would be ruined, so with it in her hand, she walked
slowly up the path that led to the top of the cliff and her home.
In the evening, Ida took the book to her room to read. Although
she had read it many times, it had never grown old to her. In the margin of
the last page she noticed some writing, and read as follows: "IVIy Princess, I
am more determined every day that I live that no oth.er woman shall have my
heart, no one who has not the dark tresses, the tender eye and the same name,
O .shall ever be more than a friend to me.',. Ida smiled as she read this rather
' la strange declaration, and decided that the owner of the book must be a young
'V',f man who was very much in love with some girl.
The following day she took the book she had found and another one, and
went as usual to the seashore. As she sat there reading, she was startled to hear
eps near her. She turned and saw a young man standing behind her. He lifted
his hat and said, "I beg your pardon, I fear I have frightened youd'
f'Uh, no! I am often interrupted here, and your coming is no offense whatever,"
she replied politely.
"IlfIy name is Prince VVilson, and I have the pleasure of meeting IlfIiss-" He
paused a moment, and she said, "Ida IVIason."
"I was in search of a book that I have carelessly left somewhere. I am staying
for a few days at the A- Hotel, and started out yesterday with a book as my only
186 THE YUCCA VOL. III
companion. I walked down the beach until I came to this boat, and it seemed such a
comfortable place in which to rest, that I remained here most of the afternoon. I
thought perhaps I must have left it here," the young man continued.
Ida gave his book to him and explained to him that she had carried the book to
her home as she was afraid that it would be ruined if it remained there all night.
He thanked her for her thoughtfulness, and after asking permission to stay awhile
with her, he seated himself beside her in the boat.
After this, they were together many times. Mr. Wilson proved a very enter-
taining companion and Ida soon looked forward to his comings with great pleasure.
She seemed to care for him only as a friend, for often when with him she thought of
the words she had read in his book, and tried to realize that his love was 2i'nother's.
It was the last night of his vacation. They had gone down to the beach and to
the boat-the place they both loved well. Seated here, where he had first met her, he
told her of his love for her. Ida was silent for several moments: she could not trust
herself to speak for she realized, now, that her love for Prince Wilson was the greatest
love of her life.
"Ida," he said, "please do not keep me waiting so long. Surely you know your
own heart, but do not tell me that my love is vain.
"Yes," answered Ida, "I know my own heart, but please do not ask me to answer
"Is it possible that you love another ?" he asked.
She could keep her secret no longer, and tried to explain to him that she had read
the writing in his book. He would not let her finish her explanation, but said ten-
derly, "You dear little girl, is that what is troubling you? I can easily explain that.
One day several years ago, after I had finished reading the book, I wrote those words
on the margin. , Did I say I had met her? She was then an imaginary princess.
Since then I have been looking for her, and now, at last, the Princess of my dreams is
'transformed into a real living creature, for have you not the dark tresses, the tender
eyes and the very name of Tennyson's Princess? Like the prince of old I say, 'Yield
thyself up: my hopes and thine are one:
"Accomplish thou my manhood and thyself,
Lay thy sweet hand in mine and trust to me.' "

The fear is anne
HE year is gone! throw books aside!
We've fought the light and won.
Hail, summer-time! and home sweet home!
Rewards for work well done.
Yet when the parting hour draws nigh,
We fondly linger hereg
The year indeed is gone, and we
Must part from comrades dear.
O! sweet each joy that we have known,
And long shall love to tellg
And 'round these scenes of student life,
Fond memlry loves to dwell.
The world before us brightly lies,
Time beckons on to allg
For other scenes and other cares,
And high Ambition's call.
So shall our heart with thoughts be sad,
And tears shall fill each eye,
VVhen to these happy days of school,
VVe say our last good-bye.

' It was a wild-eyed student and
He hastened down the hall,
He was going to the office-room,
f As was the teacher's call.
He thought of all that he had done
Within the last half-year.
The words, the questions he had missed,
All caused him now to fear.
He stopped before he reached the door,
His heart was heating fast.
He said, "If he will let me go,
This time shall be the last."
His face did burn, his hands did shake,
His eyes then sought the floor.
He got up courage, then at last,
He stepped inside the door.
The teacher pointed to a chair,
The boy was Filled with awe,
For in it sat a portly man,
Nobody, but his "pa."

Of something that doth always cause alfright.

Ode tothe Cap and Gown
HICRIC is tumult at the Normal,
In that grand and awful place,
-And the halls are rife with Seniors
Hurrying restlessly apace.
Students huddling in the corners,
Students talking each to each
And they tear their hair in misery
In their bitterness of speech.
So they growl, and so they grumble,
Growling, grumbling, on they pass
Up the stairs, into the Chapel,
To the meeting of the class.
And the mingling of their voices,
Each the other tried to drown.
"Will they do itl Dare they do itl
Canit we wear the cap and gown ?"
See! See! The dense throng scatter,
And like a king in jeweled crown,
Walks a youth, so tall and stately,
Gaily decked in cap and' gown.
NVith his fingers clenched in anger,
And his eyes ablaze with fire,
Dates he make a speech so mighty
In the cause of his attire.
Hushed the students, noisy clatter,
And the motion's put the class:
Shall it always be a mystery
Why the motion didn't pass?
We shall always sing the praises
Of the martyr pictured here,
One so brave and great and fearless,
One who stood for honors dear.
Now the noisy crowd is silent,
They have ceased to plead in vain.
liut the spirit it awakened
Will appear next year again,
And they'll work and strive and study,
And the faculty will frown,
And again there'll be some martyrs
In the cause of Cap and Gown.

Dear North Texas Normal College, we've been happy with you hereg
And our hearts are iiiled with sadness that we part with you this year.
Though it may not move nor grieve you,
Still, it hurts us that we leave you.
Yet we'll oft turn back to greet you, College dear.
Though the grind was sometimes fearful,
And the outcome oft-times tearful,
Still we loved you 'spite of all, College dear.
And our pai we know you'li be,
Though in lands across the seag
And we'll still turn back to greet you, College dear.
Then it's good-bye, Normal College, and we'll drink a bumper to youl
1VIay you prosper in the future as we hope that you may do.
Oh! the heart of each naught-niner
Will forever be your shriner,
For we'll ne'er forget our training, College dear.
And if enemies deride you,
Or sore troubles eyer defy you,
Then you'll find us close beside you, College dear.
Standing by our "Lovely lXfIother,"
Proving that indeed we love her,
That welll do and die just for her, College dear.

Whenever a drug store need crosses your path, THE ULU STORE ON THE CORNER
is qualified to render service ailvantaiieous to you.
I TRY to make my place one where it is a pleasrre to trade, and a con-
stantly increasing patronage amongst Normal people and their
friends leads me to believe that I am succeeding in this endeavor. Iinvite
YOU also to become one of the old store's many customers. You'll
always receive prompt, polite and careful service here, and you'll find at
your disposal a stock of goods such as is not found outside the larger cities.
I have given the best years of my life to acquiring the education and train-
ing necessary for rendering gilt-edge drug service, and if I don't do it, I
have failed in an earnest purpose.

NI the banks of West End I.ake, an expansive body
of water covering more than fifty acres, is the
Peacock Military College, occupying seven blocks
-it of city properly ot' buildings, parade grounds, and
at.hletic fields. The lake is controlled exclusively
1 by the school, whose st.udents get the free benefit
1 of the fishing, bathing, boating and shooting, an
l advantage not possessed by any ot.her school in
' the South. While the row boats are the prop-
'--- erty of t.he school, the five navy cutters costing
the Government. 554,600.00 have been assigned to this school by the Navy Department for instruc-
tion of cadets in boating, signaling, life saving, and the elements of seamanship. On the occasion
of water carnivals conduct.ed on t.his lake and participated in by t.he people of San Antonio 131110-
tical demonstrations in swimming, diving, -racing, sailing, rescuing the drowning, and resuscitating
the drowned, are given by the cadets for the benefit of the public under authority of the National
Government. The Army list and Directory published in August, 1908, shows that the Peacock Mili-
tary College is classed A ttirst classl by the War Department, and t.bat it is the only school in
Texas, or in any Gulf State, with this classification. The same book shows that t.he A. SL M. Col-
lege of Texas is classed Ii, and that two ot.her military schools in Texas are classed C, there -being
only four military schools in this State recognized by the National Government. With the addition
of the Navy Department the cadets now get the benefit of instruction in int'ant1'y, cavalry, and
seanzanship, thus being enabled to prepare both for West Point and Annapolis. Graduates of t.he
school are ent.itled to connnissions as Second Lieutenant in the regular army. The Peacock Naval
School is conducted in vacation.
The interest manifested in the Peacock School by both t.he War Department and the Navy
Department. has resulted in the assignment. t.his year for use of cadets 150 Kraag-Jorgensen rifles
and 6,800 cartridges for target practice, and six Kraag-Jorgensen rifles with 8,000 cartridges for
gallery practice, thirty bridles, saddles, blankets, and sabres for cavalry, and five navy cutters.
The school is a member of the National Rifle Association. Another year a request will be made
for artillery and the detail of a naval officer.
The course of st.udy has been raised to meet. the requirements of West Point., Annapolis, and
the leading universities, thus accommodating more especially young men of maturer age, now at-
tending the public high schools. In the faculty are not only three army officers detailed by the
War Department, but t.l1ree West. Point graduates also. In the present faculty are graduates of
t.he flnlversity of Georgia, University of Virginia, University of the South, University of South
Carolina, and Toronto University.
On February 18, 1009, the Peacock Military School was incorporated and chart.ered as the Pea-
cock Military College with authority to confer the li. S. Degree, thus leaving the rank of strict.ly
preparatory schools. The Peacock Naval School will be conducted hereafter during the summer
