FOREWORD Realizing the large part which an Annual plays in college life, and believing that the loyalty of the students of N. T. S. N. C. would guarantee its success, we have, despite the un- usual conditions which have prevailed through- out the year, placed before you another voluima of our annual. In this accomplish a M$ many obstacles have been met and many overcome. That you may judge as to the merit of our pro- a iimi.j ■« « lixvlia yomi m paviiusx A Ilia 1S j13 l iHs iHoin To the Noble Young Men of our College who have bravely answered their Country ' s call and have gone forth to battle, having laid unflinchingly upon the altar of sacrifice their wealth, their hopes and their lives, that the Ideals of Democracy, of Noble Manhood and of Pure Womanhood shall ever remain the Ideals of our Nation, this, the Nineteen Hundred Eighteen volume of the YUCCA is sin- cerely dedicated. eooi il Classes TU Oro-anlxotLons M IthtetLcs V College Life IZIlnthe 5ervLc Sfffacts and.

Martin O. Flowers Lockhart, Texas CHBX. BRUCE, Ph. D. President The Tale of et Din aiF Reader, gentle or savage, be not de- ceived. This is not an Uncle Remus story, nor yet a tale from " Wild Animals I Have Known. " If you are hoping for a chapter from " Afri- can Game Trails, " or from " Hunting Wild Animals in Af- rica, " or if even now you are reading breathlessly in an- ticipation of the thrills to come that will " make the hair on your head up to stand " and send gelid pulsations coursing up and down your spinal column as you peruse an exciting account of hazardous adventure taken from that inimitable record of hairbreadth escapes, " Stalking the Hare in His Native Lair, " you are doomed — yea, foredoomed — to disappointment. Nor will you be informed from these pages as to how the cotton-tail came by his abbreviated caudal appen- dage. But know ye, reader, that this, " The Tale of the Cotton- Tail, " though to the present student generation apparent fic- tion, is in reality a delayed obituary notice, chronicling the spon- taneous generation, the self-condemning christening, the unique 11 existence, and the perfectly natural death and supplanting of the first student annual of the North Texas State Normal College. A gentleman, our non-cinematographic, pre-ragtime forbears maintained, requires three generations in the making; hut a mush- room, as everyone knows, may spring up in all its parvenu luxuri- ance over night, wholly forgetful of its lowly origin and sporo- phoric kinship. The gentleman endures; but the mushroom, when its little hour of morning exaltation has passed and the day is senes- cent, may find that it is " only a toadstool, after all. " Let the inquisi- tive reader puzzle out the moral of this if he can. Rightly to appreciate " The Cotton-Tail " in all its brevity and uniqueness, one must know something of the motives actuating and the conditions responsible for its spontaneous generation, and something of the intellectual and social environment into which this sporadic " annualet " was ushered and in the midst of which it passed its epehemeral existence. One should know, too. something of the persons who stood sponsor to the infant literary bunny, and who almost straightway deserted it when a more " normal " annual, " The Yucca, " was born one year later, decently christened, and, as the literary successor of this " sport, " this lEpus PLORIDANUS, took its place as a legitimate member of the family of Texas college yearbooks. In the early days of the Normal — back in the year of grace 1906, to be exact, the fifth year of the Normal as a State school, and before Mr. Legett became a member of the teaching staff — the Faculty consisted of fifteen men and women. Mr. J. S. Kendall, the first President of the school, and father of the present Chairman of the Board of Regents, was then at the head of the Faculty. The teachers and their respective subjects were as follows: Dr. W. H. Bruce and Mr. J. A. Sanders, Mathematics ; Mr. L. D. Borden, Physical Science; Mr. W. H. Long, Natural Science; Miss Annie Webb Blanton and Miss Edith Lanier Clark, English; Miss Emma 12 Mitchell and Mrs. Haydn Lewis, History; Mr. F. A. Hauslein, Latin; Mr. E. H. Thompson, Physiology and Algebra; Miss Annie Moore, Psychology and Methods; Miss Mattie Simkins, Drawing; Miss M. Manora Boylan, Music and Reading; and Mrs. Pearl Garden McCracken, Librarian. Of these fifteen men and women, seven are still serving as members of the teaching staff, which now numbers sixty-four. Students of the present generation can appreciate the change that has come over these seven teachers during the past twelve years when they are acquainted with some of the oft-used phrases that formerly echoed in various classrooms. " Your proof is all wrong, " the timid student of Mathematics was frequently informed. But, though his recitation in History was also far from satisfac- tory, the teacher ' s " That will do, thank you, " made his imperfect recitation less embarrassing. " So much for that, " the peripatetic teacher of Psychology and Methods would remark, as she wound and unwound her long watch chain from her finger or toyed with the slide on her chain. " Now, get that formula down pat, " the lec- turer in Chemistry would advise. " Beg pardon, " the teacher of English Grammar would entreat, as she gave the student who had classified the verb BE as transitive another chance to correct his error. " Oh, now, don ' t be stupid ; wake up ! " the other teacher of English would say, as she endeavored to rouse a sleepy class or to extract an intelligent recitation from a faltering student. Of the buildings now adorning the campus, only the Admin- istration Building had, in 1906, been erected. Where the home of the President now stands, the old Normal Building, a red-brick structure erected by Mr. M. B. Terrell and sold by him to the State, then stood. In 1907 Jupiter proved himself a deity of aesthetic taste and a true friend of landscape architecture when, in sportive mood, 13 When zVntfaf d, TresHe up d Ire , V n that Freshie hea j s swred as he an be Then his «V es • ]o Aucj out .- He ' s js cdP«J ihene is no doubt dS Ihis frightened icu see. he hurled one of his po- tent thunderbolts at the rather unsightly old build- ing and made room for the home of the President. Immediately south of the Administration Building there was formerly a wooden structure, used originally as a chapel room, but by 1906 used principally for Music and Reading classes, school receptions and traveling art exhibits. A few years later it was moved to the west side of the campus, where it underwent the degradation of being con- verted into a pesthouse. Still later it was moved entirely off the campus, and, after being renovated, was transformed into a dwell- ing. As a dwelling it exists even unto this day. The fence around the campus and the broad cement peripatos had not been built in 1906. On the campus, only the walk from the Administration Building to Hickory Street had then been constructed. The enrollment of the Normal twelve years ago numbered fewer than five hundred students. There were at that time but two courses, the Latin and the Science, and only three classes, namely, Freshman, Junior and Senior. The Freshman and Junior classes had each four sections ; the Senior, only two. Freshman One and Two, Junior One and Two, and Senior One were the Latin divi- sions ; Freshman Three and Four, Junior Three and Four, and M Senior Two were the Science divisions. Not yet had the exasper- ating seven-course system been devised for the vexation of sched- ule committees and as a refuge for the undecided student. Imagine if you can this student hotly assembled for chapel in the Audito- rium before a Faculty of fifteen members, who had to " spread themselves " to fill the ample stage. Talk- ing was then less preva- lent at chapel exercises than now, for even the back row of Freshmen was very slightly behind the middle aisle. Further- more, students hardly ventured to talk for fear of missing a word when such sage counsel as that contained in these phrases culled from the Annual fell from the lips of the Faculty member conducting chapel : " Don ' t cut classes ; " " Don ' t expose yourself to bad weather; wear your overshoes; " " Don ' t sit on the radiator or stalk noisily through the halls; " " Young ladies cannot afford to chew gum or talk to young men on the street ; " " Don ' t fall over the railing of the rotunda ; " " Always stand during song and prayers ; " " Please leave the song books in their places ; " " Don ' t get discouraged. " H ow different from the chapel exercises of the present ! Such were the conditions of the school when, late in the winter or early in the spring of 1906, the students of the Normal, at the suggestion and instigation of certain members of the Fac- 15 ulty, assembled themselves in the Auditorium to discuss the advis- ability of attempting the publication of a school annual. After much wise and otherwise deliberation, it was decided that an effort should be made to publish a student yearbook. There already existed " The Normal Journal. " a monthly student magazine, which devoted the May issue to Commencement affairs, and was a sou- venir booklet of the principal school activities during the session. But now the dignity and importance of the institution seemed to demand a more pretentious publication. The school, having attained a yearly enrollment of almost five hundred students, was suffering from growing pains, and needed an additional outlet for the superabundance of apparent genius then in the bud, in the flower, and in some cases so far advanced as to be almost in the pod, so over-ripe it appeared. Furthermore, should not the Normal, in imitation of other schools, publish an Annual. And were not these reasons good and sufficient? Bear in mind, ye members of " The Yucca " staff, that not more than three months of the session remained when it was voted to undertake the Annual. But smile kindly or shed a pitying tear at the inexperienced innocence and the youthful enthusiasm of these your most remote predecessors. Remember, they were pioneers. Several problems immediately arose in attempting to carry through this ill-advised and tardily initiated literary venture. First of all. What should be the name of the yearbook? A copy of the prospective Annual was offered as a reward to the person who would suggest an acceptable name. Several names were suggested, among which were " The Alfalfa, " " The Cocklcburr " and " The Cot- ton-Tail. " After much deliberation and many discussions, it was decided by two members of the Faculty that it should be called by the latter name. At chapel the students were informed (announce- ments of great importance could be made in those days) that the Annual had been christened " The Cotton-Tail. " The students and the Faculty cheered. And lo, it seemed very good ! But to look back " at this selection of a name, it is clear enough now that the 16 WM-T«KNER. L.MIU.EIV venture was doomed from the very outset, and made an object of mirth at the mere mention of the name. What could be expected of a Cotton-Tail? The joke was not so readily apparent then, how- ever, to the student body. Having chosen a title for the Annual, the stu- dents next set about the election of an editor-in- chief and a staff. The men of the school — then as they are now, in the minority, yet hardly so unanimously in the mi- nority as at present — took the initiative or in some way outwitted the women and nomi- nated two candidates for editor-in-chief. The Reagan Literary Society nominated Mr. Louis L. Miller; the Kendall-Bruce, Mr. William M. Tanner. After a spirited campaign, in which both candidates remained good friends, and in which the women took an interested part, the latter candidate was elected by a small majority. Each of the ten classes then chose an associate editor. The business managers of " The Journal, " Mr. W. Z. Bates and Mr. N. N. Rosenquest, were made the business managers of " The Cotton-Tail, " also. Thus far the students had given their enthusiastic support. After the excitement of the christening and the election was over, however, the majority of the students seemed to regard their work done. The staff that they had elected enjoyed their entire confi- dence, and were left to pay for the " honors bestowed upon them. " Where was the genius that had seemed so abundant? Apparently it had vanished or had taken refuge in the thickets and the brambly haunts of the timid cotton-tail. 17 The staff was soon organized into committees to still-hunt this erstwhile seemingly plentiful genius. In feverish haste each member of the staff set to work studying other school annuals as models. The editor-in-chief and the art editors, working under the direction of the optimistic and ever-patient teacher of Drawing, literally spent their days and nights with Uncle Remus, searching for appropriate and artistic uses of the cotton-tail motif. Easter cards and designs afforded some hints as to the artistic possibilities of the cotton-tail. Every student who could draw a creature even remotely resembling a cotton-tail was encouraged — yea, begged — to expend his best efforts, with the assurance that whatever manner of quad- ruped he limned, his drawing would be sure of acceptance by the art editors. The drawing room soon took on the semblance of a veritable warren, so numerous were the cotton-tails in all stages of disguise, unlikeness, and contortion. Every member of every English class was assigned a class poem, class prophecy, class letter, or other literary representation. Classes were corralled and marched almost under guard to photographers to have their pictures made. Clubs and all other school organizations were begged, coaxed, and threatened in an attempt to get them to take space in the Annual and have their pic- tures made. Each member of the Faculty was besought for his photograph, and all cheerfully responded. Two members of the staff were detailed to cull out of " Forty Thousand Sublime is and Beautiful Thoughts " sixty-seven quotations that seemed suffi- ciently inappropriate and flattering to the members of the Senior class, write these quotation ' s on slips of paper, mix them well in a hat, draw one for each member of the class, and affix said quotation beneath the name and opposite the picture of each Senior. A glance at this section of " The Cotton-Tail " will give evidence suf- ficient of this effective means of characterization. The method had at least the virtue of being expeditious, and time was precious. Meanwhile, the business managers were seeking engravers and publishers who would at that late date take the contract to publish the annual. After much coaxing, contracts advantageous to the publishers were made. The " material " was hastily bundled together and sent to the engravers and the publishers. Later, the proofs were as hastily examined and " approved " and hurried back. The staff heaved a sigh of relief and waited, trusting that, by some miracle in the process of printing, the finished book would appear a work of art. " The Cotton-Tail, " the embodiment of all the hopes, fears, and mistakes of the staff, finally arrived for distribution during Com- mencement week. It was a slender volume of exactly one hundred pages, bound in a gray and green board cover. Truly, like man, it was " fearfully and wonderfully made. " And still the wonder grows as time separates the reviewer from this his first literary effort. Artistically considered, it is indeed a marvel of symbolism in what is not art and of " nature faking. " BuJ, reader, before you criticize too severely, consider the name by which the first Annual was handicapped and the limitations of the " cotton-tail motif " in artistic expression. Such minor considerations as perspective, light and shade, proportion, and color harmony were left to the ingenu- ity and whimsical imagination of the individual artist. Certainly the spice of variety is apparent throughout the volume. 19 The flora and fauna of " The Cotton-Tail " are truly wonder- ful. On the outside of the front cover, two long-eared rabbits, very black as to their bodies and very white as to their tails — the shadow of their bodies does not dim the whiteness — sit close huddled, facing a rising or settin sun or moon. (Time has proved — note the sym- bolism — that it was a setting luminary.) Over these sombre, westward-facing bunnies a wondrous plant — a cotton plant it was no doubt intended to represent — leans shelteringly and suggestively. These lugubrious cotton-tails and the symbolic sheltering stalk rest on a ground that resembles nothing so much as the surface of a glassy sea or frozen lake. Though the rabbits cast each a dark shadow, the wondrous cotton plant does not. (A splendid instance of artistic license, is it not?) The word COTTONTAIL, printed in large black letters vertically at the left of the cover " design " ren- ders the drawing thoroughly intelligible. Within the book, the artistic adaptations and contortions of the cotton-tail are scarcely less marvelous. On the greeting page a gigantic stork holds suspended from its beak an infant bunny so ingeniously posed that both his face and his very white fluff of a tail are toward the beholder. The suggestion of physical torture gives one a crick in his neck as he looked at this poor little twisted bunny. On the contents page a begowned and be-mortar-boarded Senior girl shows to three cottontails a tome entitled " The Cotton- Tail Who Would Go to the Normal. " The more pensive of the three squats in the foreground, and from his eye there trickles a monstrous tear. Was it in pity shed? Or was there revealed to this little creature what was concealed from the wise staff and student body, namely, the brief existence and early death and supplanting of this infant publication which bore its name and whose page it adorned? Is there so great power of divination among bunnies? M As one turns through the remain- ing pages of the book he sees cotton- tails variously clad and often equip- ped with traveling bag and umbrel- la. Some play " hide-and-seek ; " oth- ers, closely resembling porcupines, are sporting amidst dumps of cac- tus in the vicinity of a milestone. On the page preceding the Fresh- man section there appears a very long-eared rabbit climbing a tree and silhouetted against a blood- red moon. At the beginning of the Junior section sits a meditative cotton-tail, highly illuminated on the side away from the rising or setting moon, which seems to be scrutinizing some object, a very peculiar botanical specimen remotely resembling the Yucca, dimly outlined on the shadowy landscape. (Note again the symbolism.) Could this be interpreted as a prophetic vision? And did the artist draw more truly than she knew? In addition to the cotton-tail and the cotton plant, other mem- bers of the animal and the plant kingdoms were sacrificed upon the altar of art. The head of an owl, emblem of wisdom, forms the center of the colophon at the end of the Senior section. A spider ' s web with the spinner included serves as the background of " The Cotton-Tail " staff pictures. Somehow the " busy bee, " with all his energetic suggestiveness, escaped. Perhaps lack of time accounts for his absence. The Seniors look forth from backgrounds of morn- ing glories, daisies, daffodils, thistles, and wheat. Clover burrs and prickly pears are also included in the artistic botanical exhibit. Lack of space forbids the consideration of other interesting aspects of the first Annual. Some virtues, no doubt, it had, in spite of its obvious crudities and other shortcomings. First of all, " The Cotton-Tail, " as the pioneer yearbook of the Normal, served as an object lesson to the students of later years of what the 21 Annual should not be. Most mistakes were so patent that they could easily be detected and avoided. And it is gratifying to see how rapidly and consistently the Annual has improved from the year following to the present. For whatever negative instruction this initial venture may have afforded, the first staff claim some modest share of the credit. It is especially interesting to note that a woman editor was chosen the next year to correct the errors that her man predecessor had made. This sketch would lack completeness if no mention were made of the " hoodoo " that attended " The Cotton-Tail. " In the first place, Mr. Kendall, the beloved President of the Normal, to whom the Annual was dedicated, died at the beginning of the following ses- sion. Later in that session, the yearbook was rechristened " The Yucca, " and " The Cotton-Tail " was no more. Finally, even the name of the Kendall-Bruce Literary Society, of which " The Cotton- Tail " editor-in-chief had been a member, was changed to Robert E. Lee. Truly, for the Normal, as well as for the bunny, " one ' Cotton- Tail ' was enough.

Of what are you singing, you wanton wind, Down on the shell-strewn shore? Of a maid we sing, who ' s as pure as air ; O, beauteous maid, exceeding fair! Nor purer nor fairer could we find — But, alas ! We shall see her no more. Then why are you singing, you wanton wind, Down on the green-topped wave? Ah, a secret we hold, unknown to man, A tale that was old when life began. A magic arrests Death ' s power to bind — This maiden shall know no grave. Then you saw her leaving, you fragrant wind, Dwelt she there by the sounding sea? Yea, she came to us on a night in June. O, her voice was like the sweetest tune, That in the inmost soul of the harp we find, And her eyes were heaven to see. But you saw her leaving, you gentle wind ! Was her barge like those that we know? The sails were of mist, a diamond sheen, More wondrous far than man has seen ! And such glorious light it left behind, That the waves in beauty did glow. Then where is she dwelling, you wanton wind? Is she queen of the throbbing deep? Ay, all of the shining things that live Beneath the sea, did freely give Of the richest gifts that Love could find, And crowned this maiden Queen of Sleep. iii 102 w SZ E. M.

Like nearly every other activity of the College, debating was considerably handi- capped this year by the dearth of men. All but one man of last year ' s teams had gone into the service of the country, or. to the schoolroom. The " tryout " for intercollegiate positions was held later than usual, in the effort to secure a larger entry. A. B. Allen, R. K. Crain, Adolphus Moore, R. C. Poole and B. T. Walters were the six men who were finally chosen to maintain the mighty foren- sic traditions of the College. Mr. Allen soon found that he was overburdened with 120 3 f» W %B CMC r j» - $) Rouert C. Pooi.E Adolphus Moore Affirmative against Oklahoma State Normal at Durant other responsibilities and resigned his place, to be succeeded by Rae Tucker, one of the alternates. Then came the long siege of preparation. Our question was difficult this year. It involved some fine points of economic theory, and none of the team had even a speaking acquaintance with that subject. But they buckled to it in fine spirit and proved to everyone that, though North Texas might be short of men in 1917-18, she certainly was not short on quality — the spirit and determination to succeed. Athough the final intercollegiate contests have not been held at this writing, it is by all means certain that " our boys " will acquit themselves worthy of their Alma Mater. 121 V B. T. Walters R.

Rumor has it that a strong effort will be made next year to have an intercollegiate forensic event for women. Here ' s hoping. 122 % £ (TBI ftub T?iose thofc+lobgrobliri coiiyoLL, ooncL 5weetrPu ck.

" MY m % FQ GT The prospects for a football team this year looked very gloomy indeed. In the squad that reported for practice there was only one man from last year ' s team. The squad itself was small, and the man with previous football expe- rience was the exception rather than the rule From the very first, great stress was laid on teamwork. Although in each game some player would stand out more prominently than the others, the success of the team was due to the fact that each man played his position, not as an indi- vidual star, but as one part of the entire team. The rapidity with which the men acquired this spirit of teamwork and increased their knowledge of the game speaks well for Mr. St. Clair ' s ability as a coach. Although getting a bad start, by losing the first game, the team quickly rounded into shape and won the other six games by safe margins. By defeating such teams as Austin Col lege and Dallas University, the Normal eleven won a place in the foremost ranks of the Junior Colleges of Texas. } 137 -£ y Normal O - - - Burleson 14 Monday, October 1, the Norma ' Col- lege team played their first game of the season at Greenville, against Burleson College. It was a warm day, but both teams started with fast playing and lots of pep. Luck seemed to be with Burle- son in the first few minutes of play. A bad pass and a fumbled ball by the Nor- mal gave Burleson her first touchdown. Encouraged by this, the Burleson team started a swift, steady march down the field, and before they could be stopped they had rushed the ball across for an- other touchdown. This ended the first quarter. Although Burleson ' s fast, heavy back- field was able to gain steadily while in the middle of the field, they were always held for downs when they came near the Normal ' s goal. The fierce tackling of Collins was a prominent feature of the game. It was a clean, hard-fought game, and, although defeated, every man on the team came back determined to work harder than ever for the remainder of the season. CAPTAIN PIERCE M % -I.. -. ft ' ! £ DURANT KICKS 138 s S Normal 14 - - - Simmons 8 WH1SENHUNT One week after the Burleson game the Normal eleven made another long trip. This time it was to Abilene, to play Simmons College. The Central Texas Fair was in progress at that time, and the town wished to entertain the crowds with a high- class football game. They naturally sent for the Normal team. In all probability, as the crowds were mostly home folks, they had planned to have their home team win. But they were doomed to disappointment. Encouraged by their new foot- ball suits, and determined to remove the sting of defeat given them on the Monday before, the Nor- mal boys went on the field resolved to win the game or " die in the attempt. " The game opened, however, rather badly for the Normal. In the first quarter Simmons made a - safety, as the result of a bad pass on the part of the Normal. This gave Simmons two points to the Normal ' s none. The Normal scored twice in the second quarter. The first score was made by Ray, who recovered a fumbled ball and ran ten yards for a touchdown. The second score came a few minutes later, when Pierce received a thirty-yard pass from Sas- ser and ran fifteen yards for a touchdown. In the third quarter Simmons completed a forward pass, which resulted in her only touchdown. During the remainder of the game Denton kept Simmons on the defen- sive, by means of long end runs and for- ward passes. Simmons was unable to pierce the Normal line for gains. The work of the entire team in this game was a marked im- provement over that of the preceding one. „. o 139 l£ - --- : : - L — - — t - ' -- " .. " -; tat. Oklahoma.

Victory was m doubt from the 91 play of the game until the ast second be- fore the timekeeper ' s whistle blew. Austin Col- lege scored first, after a few minutes of fast play. This aroused every man of the Normal eleven, and they began to play football for all they were worth. They backed Austin College up against her own goal hue, and when she attempted to kick out of danger. Eavis broke through and blocked the kick. The ball rolled back across the goal hue. where Pierce tdB on it. making our first score. Austin College made her second and last touchdown in the second quarter. The Normal immediately proceeded to -e another touchdown also. The first half was over with the score tied. 13 and IX. v.

Going the length of the field in four or five fast plays, they crossed Austin ' s goal line for the winning touchdown. The remainder of the game was marked by Austin Col- lege ' s desperate attempts to score. The defensive work of the Normal linesmen. Davis, Whisenhunt. Deaton, aide, and Cooper, deserves especial mention. It was their magnificent playing, especially at one critical time, when Austin was only three feet from our goal line, which prevented her from scoring another touchdown, which would have changed the Normal ' s victory into a defeat. Normal 48 - - - Decatur Baptist O On Monday. November 5. the Normal eleven easily defeated the Decatur Baptists by the large score of A8 to 0. Although the Baptists put up a game fight. Ihey were hopelessly outclassed from the first. The Normal failed only once to make graham fi fst down, while Decatur made first only once. The first touch- down was made shortly after the game commenced. Denton kicked and Decatur fumbled the ball. Andrews picked it up and ran for a touchdown. The second touchdown came a few minutes later, when the Normal completed a long pass, Sasser to Graham. In the second quarter Graham completed a pass across the goal line to Andrews from the 30-yard line for an- other touchdown. A few minutes later Andrews made another touchdown, through the line. Shortly after the second half opened, Sasser made a long end run for a touchdown. After a few minutes of fast play. Pierce received a pass that nettsd another touchdown. Another successful pass to ilkerson gave the Normal her last touchdown of the game. BBCKHAM j Qtfimiil 13 - Piii s °a o DAVIS It happened at 4 o ' clock on Friday afternoon, No- vember 9. This was the day the Dallas University team went down in defeat before our powerful eleven. All season they had been thinking-, planning and training for this game. The results of their work were very grati- fying, indeed. The large crowd of students and Faculty members who saw the game all declare it to be the best and fastest game played on the home grounds this year. During the first half of the game the ball changed hands often and passed rapidly back and forth across the field. Both teams threatened to score, but the defen- sive work of each was so strong that neither side could keep the ball in their possession long at a time. Between halves everybody joined in a snake dance around the team. This, added to Mr. St. Clair ' s " speech " to the team, made the boys forget their bruises and tired muscles, and renewed their " pep " and fighting spirit. 143 33l£ C3? When they started in the second half, they could not be stopped. Plays through the line, and around the ends, and forward passes, all resulted in good gains. A short pass across the goal line, Sasser to Graham, gave Denton her first score. Not satisfied with this, the Normal went back and in a few minutes had worked the ball back within striking distance of Dallas U ' s goal, and Collins plunged the last twelve yards for a second touchdown. In the last quarter both teams fought hard. Twice during this period the Normal rushed the ball to within few inches of her opponent ' s goal, but both times lost the ball before it could be pushed across. The game ended with the ball in the Normal ' s possession, and only two feet from Dallas U ' s goal line. Normal 25 Meridian 7 The Normal football team brought its season to a successful close by decisively defeating Meridian Col- lege. After the first few minutes of play, it was seen that the Denton boys were playing the better class of football. By means of straight football, mixed with an occasional forward pass, the Normal eleven was able to score one touchdown in each of the first and second quarters. Two touchdowns were made in the third quarter. In the last quarter Meridian began playing with renewed " pep, " and one of her many for- ward passes was completed for her only touchdown. The entire Denton team did good work, both on the defensive and on the offensive. The splendid inter- ference run by the backfield was a feature of the game. mm KEAHEV 1«4 (j COE ' " W® Class Football Nothing is more helpful in interesting a large number of students in athletics than the annual class games. As the players on the regular team are barred from these games, many students who would not otherwise take any active part in athletics play in them. Four teams entered the race for the class football championship. Three games were to be played : the first between the Freshmen and the Sophomores, the next between the Juniors and the Seniors, and the last between the winners of these two games. The first game was a victory for the Sophs, by a 19-to-6 score. The Sopho- mores were able to pile up their 19 points during the first half, while they held the Fish scoreless. The Fish came back stronger the last half and scored one touchdown, while the Sophs were unable to score. The Junior-Senior Game was fast and close, the teams seeming to be about evenly matched. The Juniors depended on the line-plunging of their backfield, while the Seniors relied upon sweeping long end runs and short forward passes. The only score of the game was made in the second quarter, when Gilbreath of the Seniors intercepted a forward pass and ran twenty yards for a touchdown. A third game, between the Seniors and the Sophomores, was necessary to settle the championship. Although the two teams started off evenly, the Seniors soon forged ahead. For the Seniors, Adams and Hodges circled the ends again and again, always for long gains, while Cross plowed through the line for five and ten yards at a time. For the- Sophs, Pirtle featured with a forty-yard run through a broken field for ' a touchdown. The game ended with the score 24 to 7, in favor of the Seniors. i AROUND RIGHT END 145 Ttxiih for tour ul «„ -,-«li flaKy Gains " IZwowi ' lt diffcrmt J. M6 Otv VK« . Y tT v 3 vt Wd-tCK t h.

However, a large majority of the men had had previous basket-ball experience on fast high school teams. The squad was also strengthened by the addition of Strong and Graham, both of whom had played on the team in former years. The first game was won by a safe margin, but it was discouraging, in that the victory was due more to individual effort than to teamwork. The men seemed unable to start any teamwork at any time during the game. The next game, only a week later, was with the Texas University five. T he Normal ' s chances were thought by all to be very slim indeed, as Texas had already won three games without having a field goal scored on them. However, everyone was agreeably surprised to find that the Normal five had developed into a smooth-running basket-ball machine, and were able to take the long end of the 24--to-20 score. The team continued this same class of basket-ball during the remainder of the season, except in one or two games. As a whole, the season may be considered as one of the most successful in the history of the Normal College. Out of a total of eleven games played, only two were lost, and both of these were played on foreign courts and under unfavorable circumstances. The indications are that next year ' s team will be even more successful than this year ' s as most of the squad, including five of the latter men, will be back to wear the Green and White again. Meador (Captain) " Spidora ' s " natural position was at guard, but when it was necessary he could fill the center position also. Because of his height and his ability to Jump, Smith could more than hold his own with any center he met. He always went into a game full of fight and pep, and played aggressively until the final whistle. His " Elgin movement, " consisting of a hop, step and jump that car- ried him the length of the court, made it possible for him to be where he was needed most. Davis A big man and hard to handle. His size and speed made it possible to shift him from worward to center when necessary. At both positions his accurate basket tossing was the outstanding feature of his playing. No matter who was guarding him, it was almost an impossi- bility to keep him from scoring. His special trick was shooting a goal while two or three opponents were try- ing to take the ball away from him. Newton " Flunkey " guards with the tenacity of a bulldog. He is short and chunky, and has an t unlimited supply of grit and endur- ance. No matter how fast and hard the game was, he could always be found in the very center of the mix- up, with the ball in his possession, fe takes a special delight in jump- ing for held balls. He has a pat- ented process, all his own, by which he knocks the ball over opponents twice his height. He refuses to ex- plain it, but will demonstrate it again next year. McCracken Glen played an unusually steady game at guard, and could always be depended upon to stay with his man from first to last. His aggressiveness in securing the ball and his accurate long passes were responsible for many of the points scored by other members of the team. He not only played a strong defensive game, but could also be depended on to make two or three success- ful long shots at the basket during the game. r 151 C3 9 Strong " Bill " came to us this year with his reputation al- ready made. He had played unusually good ball on Nor- mal teams of former years, and also at T. C. U. The ease with which he covered the court and eluded his guard always placed him in the open ready to receive the ball. Bill was known for his success in making long and diffi- cult shots for the basket. The quickness with which he got rid of the ball, and the sureness of his eye for the basket, scored many points for the team. He will be missed next year, when he will be throwing hand gren- ades instead of a basket-ball. Graham This is " Singlebarrel ' s " second year on the team, he having played on the team during the 1916 season. Although not making as many points as some of the other players. he was unexcelled in teamwork, timely sacrificing, coolheadedness and consistency. His devotion to the game and his fighting spirit were noticeable at all times. After play- ing in the first two games of the sea- son, he was forced to miss two weeks of practice and two or three games. He was soon back at his old position, however, and played the rest of the season without missing a game. Deaton " Deacon " was always at the right place at the right time. He played every position on the team, and did unusually good teamwork in whatever position he was playing. During most of the season he worked at cen- ter. Although not as tall as the average center, his long reach and quick jump enabled him to handle the ball over his taller opponents. He played an open, sacrificing game, and scored heavily against every opponent. 1S2 ■ -v Normal 14 Commerce Normal 4 Normal 24 University of Texas 20 Normal 20 Texas Christian University 15 Normal 24 Dallas University 7 Normal 41 Decatur Baptist College 30 Normal 14 ' Decatur Baptist College 32 Normal 11 Southern Methodist University 26 Normal 21 Texas Christian University 19 Normal 39 Dallas University 6 Normal 25 Decatur Baptist College 18 Normal 28 Decatur Baptist College 19 Totals- 261 196 153 • Kex?o 154 The prospects for a winning baseball team did not look so bright, as there were only three old men to report for practice. These were Sigler, from last year ' s pitching staff; Gilliland, last year ' s shortstop, and Hodges, an outhelder on the 1915 team. Among the new men that showed up well we re Porter, an outfielder; Williams, a catcher; Adams, a pitcher and infielder , Toombs, an outfielder; Montgomery, an outfielder; Williford, an infielder; Butler, a pitcher and outfielder; Marshall, a pitcher and outfielder; Cave, a catcher, and Hearn, an outfielder. Practice games were played with the High School, Ponder, Lewisville and Justin. The Normal won these easily. The first scheduled games were with the old rivals, Dallas University. By making a great number of errors, the Normal managed to lose the first game. But there was a different tale to tell the next day. By terrific hitting, the Normal won the second as easily as they had lost the first. Although losing one game, the odds were with the Ndrmal, as there were two more games to be played, and these were to be at Denton. Then came two games with Decatur Baptist College, at Decatur. With Sigler and Marshall working good in the box, and the whole team hitting hard and fielding perfectly, the Normal made a clean sweep of the series. With plenty of confidence on the Normal ' s part, the first of a two- game series was opened with Dallas University. With the game on the home grounds, no one thought but what the Normal would win. But, unfor- tunately, disappointment awaited the team. The first game was lost through failure to bring in that terrific hitting that had prevailed in the former games. But with more determination than confidence, the Normal took the second. So the whole series with Dallas University broke fifty-fifty. 155 By answering a challenge through The Dallas News from John Tarle- ton College to any Junior College in the State, a three-game series was opened with them at Denton. John Tarleton is a Junior College, but their baseball team would have been a credit to any Senior College in the State. The Normal lost the first two games, but, by superb pitching by Sigler and tight fielding by the whole team, won the third. Games will probably be scheduled with the same team next season, and here ' s hoping that the long end of the scores will go to the Normal. The last games were with Decatur Baptist College, at Denton. The Normal lost the first and took the second, thus winning three out of four from Decatur. All told, the 1916-17 season was a very successful one. Fourteen games were played in all, the Normal winning nine. 156 S. S.

He has everything that it takes to make a good pitcher: a good curve, as well as a slow ball, plenty of control, and a clear head. His absence will be felt keenly by next year ' s team. Williiord " Bartender " was some first base- man. He was always in the game, and his fast playing brought the team out of several close places.

Besides being a good pitcher, he worked in several games in the out field. Butler was a good hitter and a clean fielder. Cave Porter was a good catcher, as well as a good outfielder. Also, a safe hitter. Hodges He is a good base-runner, leading the team in num- ber of stolen bases. He played good ball in both the outfield and infield.

He will be a great help to next year ' s team. GilWand " Gilly " is another from the team of ' 16. He is a fast fielder and a sure hitter. He is back at his old place at shortstop. " Porter — A new man, but he has lots of baseball ability. He played a good game at second and third. He was one of the best hitters on the team. Hearn — Wiley came in late, but he turned out to be a fast outfielder and a good hitter. Marshall — He showed his ability not only in the box. but also in the outfield and at the bat. He will greatly strengthen next year ' s team. Toombs — " Hootus " was a dangerous man on the bases, and could cut them off in home from the outfield with a sureness that saved several games. Montgomery — " Monty " was a good hitter and a fast fielder. Another that ought to make a good man for next year ' s team. NOTE — Fire in the photographer ' s shop destroyed the pictures of Porter, Toombs, Hearn, Montgomery and Marshall at such a late date that it was impossible to secure others. 160 pm A£- ' ' % x THE COACH AND HER ENTIRE BUNCH aSt ' BtiW Baste-J BsiE 191- CJ3 C?3 $J Lizzie Kate Lovelace Captain — Literally speaking, a side center. For three years she has played her part as a center, around which her team has worked. Known to her teammates as the life of the bunch. Alice Bennett Forward — Alice ' s wii and jolly attitude always made tlie game interesting. Her hard and firm look told her opponent that she meant work. Cecil Owens Center — " Moon Fixer. " No won- der she is an " All State Star, " for she has never met her equal. Re- joice, for she is to he with us next year. Ray Williams Forward — Ray could make anyone open his eyes when she pitched a goal from any part of the held. We will see her demonstrate some more basket-ball skill next year. 162 -§s Izetta White Guard — " The Old Maid. " Did you ever see an old maid play ball? Well, this old maid just naturally showed people what basket-ball is. She was to be de- pended upon at any stage of the game. Nannie Roberts Forward — " The Denton Produc- tion. " She was an ordained side center, but the Coach astounded us all by making her a forward that all of her opponents dreaded. Her big blue eyes needed to give only one flash. We will have her with us another year. Edna Naylor Guard — " The Jumping Guard. " Edna ' s ability to stay in the air always made her a player hard to tackle. She is short, but a jump makes her plenty long. Anna Carlton Center — Anna ' s ability to work signals always made her a valuable substitute for Cecil ' s place. Ever) ' player knew that Anna would always have a cheerful word for Iter. Kate Owens Guard — Kate ' s untiring effort made us realize that we had a guard that could fill any guard ' s place. We are fortunate to know that she will be back another year. Evelyn Stevenson Guard — She is a twin to the side center, but she is always found performing a .guard ' s duty. We may depend upon her at any time. 164 ( ifa VffY 165 s. The Election of the 1917-18 Yucca Staff It was on one Friday in March, at Chapel, that Mr. Masters arose and announced: " The Publications Council has decided that next year ' s Yucca staff shall be elected on the 28th of April. " Surprised students exchanged wondering looks, and then, realizing the full import of this, enthusiastically applauded. Two elections in one year! What luck! Jolly students called up memories of the fall election, and their eyes began to shine. There followed days of uncertainty — days of rumors and speculation. When the appointed time finally came, the tickets of the Lees, the Reagans and the Progressives were presented, amid much yelling and great enthusiasm. The fight was on, and what a fight it was ! The air was filled with shouting. " Pep " meetings were, the order of the days, and " pep " was everywhere — organized " pep, " variegated " pep, " the real " old stuff. " Finally, at 1 o ' clock on that 28th of April, the student body assembled to hear the formal presentation of the candidates. In his masterful way, Mr. F. C. Rector presented the Reagan candidates one by one, stopping only when forced to do so by the applause and yells of the enthusiastic supporters. In a like manner Mr. T. S. Bonner presented the candidates of the Lees, and Miss Margaret Potter charmingly announced the Progressive candidates. Then, for the benefit of those who did not understand it, Mr. Masters explained the process of voting, and immediately the balloting began. 1 6 Qdi %B 167 m m m % At last, after a first-and second ballot had been cast, the final returns were announced to a breathless and excited crowd. A great shout rent the air. From the Lees went up the biggest shout of all, for they had won the Editor-in-Chief. Everybody had something and somebody to yell for, since the Lees, the Reagans and the Progressives had all been, in a measure, successful. Finally, the uproar ceased, the crowd slowly dispersed, and at last all was quiet in Normal-town, for with a staff consisting of G. H. Sanders, Editor- in-Chief; Adolphus Moore, Associate Editor; Walter Duvall. Art Editor; L. H. Cooper, Athletic Editor; Gladys Wornell, Facts and Follies Editor; Albert B. Allen, Organizations Editor, and Mary Lee Mills, College Life Editor, everyone looked forward to the 1917-18 Yucca as the best one yet. $j c£ $] Press Club Banquet One of the most delightful events of the year was the first annual ban- quet of the Press Club, given Saturday evening, May 12, in the dining room of the Manual Arts Building. The dining room was beautifully decorated with bowls and vases filled with American Beauty roses. Mr. Flemming, as toastmaster, gave a short history of the Press Club, and ended his talk with a clever toast to the Faculty and the student body. Next Miss Elizabeth Dice, in her usual charming way, gave a toast, " The Finished Job. " Miss Mamie Smith proposed : " There are cats, and cats, and cats, But here is to the first cat That ever came into the world with Its eyes open — The Campus Cat. There followed interesting toasts by Misses Lizzie Kate Lovelace and Hattie Triplett, and Messrs. N. M. Wilson, G. H. Saunders and Bennett Woolley. Miss Blanton and Mr. Borden, as honor guests of the occasion, sum- marized in a very interesting manner the beginning and growth of the pub- lication. The five-course banquet, which was prepared and served by the Junior Home Economics girls, under the direction of Miss Hunt, was excellent in every way, and brought credit to the class. The entire occasion was most enjoyable, and it is hoped that it will be repeated as an annual affair. 168 r C8B The hearts of the Normalites were filled with mixed emotions when, on Thursday, May 24, Dr. Bruce announced that lessons were no more. Many were eager to go home. Others were wailing over " D ' s " and regret- ting their squandered hours. But ' twas no time for regrets. The campus quivered with the breath of liberty and irresponsibility. Commencement was in the air. Indeed, it was a huge Commencement. One hundred and fifty-five stu- dents were graduated, and eight hundred and fifty-five were awarded certifi- cates. On account of the inclement weather, the program for Saturday was slightly varied. In addition to the numbers already planned, Mrs. Percy V. Pennybacker delivered an interesting address. The cantata, given Saturday evening, was repeated before a large audience Monday morning. On Monday evening was given the Junior promenade, after which a reception for the Faculty, the Seniors, the visitors and the Training School was held in the Girls ' Reading Room. Every day, in the late afternoon, the College band, under the able direc- tion of Mr. Pender, gave concerts before a large audience, which, at the same time, indulged in informal chat and exchange of gossip. The Commencement of 1917 will always be a tender memory in the hearts of both students and Faculty, and its spirit of loyalty and devotion to the dear old N. T. S. N. C. will ever be cherished. 169 Commencement Exercises North Texas State Normal College 1917 FRIDAY, MAY 25— EXHIBIT DAY 9:00 A.

M jl- Band Concert on Campus Normal College Band Opening Days 1917-18 Late one warm afternoon in September a train slowly pulled away from the little city of Denton, leaving a large group of people behind. As it started, a very large, fat boy mournfully said to his companion : " Well, Tom, there goes our last hope of salvation for the next nine months. The Normal for mine ! Come on, let ' s find how to get there. " Scarcely had he finished speaking when a slender, black-haired girl spoke to him. " If you ' ll come this way, I ' ll show you the Normal street car. " " Say, you aren ' t — are you a teacher in that Normal? " " No, indeed, " replied the girl. " I belong to the Y. W. C. A., and we are only helping out the new students. " " Well, " said the boy disconsolately, as he followed her, " I never have any luck anyhow. " Another one of the new arrivals evidently did not feel so cheerful as the fat boy. A small, blue-eyed girl looked around her and sighed. " Well, I know I shall be lonesome and desolate in this place, and I don ' t want to go to the Normal. I wish I could go back home. " She was unconscious that she had spoken aloud, until another girl said to her: " You ' ll find it very different at the school tomorrow. But you ' ll have to hurry to catch the car. " The car was crowded, but it seemed in no hurry to start. " Power ' s off, " laconically replied the motorman to many questions. Finally with a " Creak! Rattle! Bang! " it started, and groaningly pulled its way up the hill. The next morning many of these students were at the Normal. They were all impressed with the well-regulated way in which both teachers and students moved. Each class was in a different room and, with the aid of the teachers, the schedules were soon arranged. Then they were waiting in line for their books. There was such a pleasant atmosphere about the school that every new student was soon feeling at home and beginning to look forward with great pleasure to the coming school term. — — ' —J Ibe PooK Jhree of a . lb«r smcLe HiU-t x onJ " COTr»«£ off Ob,be -e. rT ey come T3o«jl.i- cL For IB? Norn.uL 172 s On Saturday evening, September 21, the annual lawn party was given by the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Hundreds of students and a number of teachers gathered early on the campus. Each person wore his name and address. These names, together with some card devices, caused people with such name as Smith, and those who usually belong to the Match Club, to become better acquainted. A number of interesting charades, representing the Campus Chat, the teach- ers, and other items of college life, added fun to the entertainment. Punch was served by the Y. W. C. A. girls. Campus Chat Contest " What ' s the excitement? " " Why are students rushing so hurriedly about the campus this morning? " These questions could not be answered until Chapel hour arrived. We did not then need to be told that on this day we were to celebrate the first anniversary of the " Campus Chat. " This was one of the gayest chapel periods of the year. The campaign for subscriptions was opened with appealing talks from the staff, followed by yells and songs from those adorned with cats. Green and yellow cats were pinned on those who subscribed, and students who did not wear them scarcely dared to appear on the campus. At the end of the week the campaign closed with a victory for the Green Cats. The Press Club Picnic This victory was duly celebrated when the " Yellows " invited their triumphant rivals, the " Greens, " to an old-fashioned picnic, to which about fifty Normalites, composing the Press Club, came. Soon after the merry- makers arrived at the park, bonfires were bjazing and the odor of " sizzling " hamburgers filled the air. Meanwhile, having removed their habitual dignity, the students indulged in such games as " Three Deep " and " Drop the Hand- kerchief. " Soon — too soon — after the delightful supper, the company dispersed to their homes, regretting that the " Campus Cat " had but one birthday in a year. 173 311 174 y A Birthday Party In honor of the girls born in September and October, the Y. W. C. A. gave the first birthday party of the season. It was a genuine, old-time " Tacky Party, " and the company that gathered in the gym was indeed a motley crowd. There were rural girls and city belles, as well as prim old maids and garrulous suffragettes. The array of their faces and costumes was such as would have made the King of Discord howl in fiendish glee. The prize, a Hallowe ' en witch, was given to Miss Ola Craver. After some time spent in the enjoy- ment of old-fashioned amusements, such as " Tucker " and the " Virginia reel, " refreshments of ice cream and wafers were served. It was a " Tacky " party and a " Tacky " crowd, but each girl carried a warm feeling in her heart as she left the gym to itself and the memory of their merry-making. C?3 C?3 Liberty Bonds At a meeting of the Faculty, on October 17, 1917, the teachers of our College subscribed about $6,000.00 for the purchase of Liberty Bonds. A committee, consisting of Misses Blanton, Moore, Parrill and Price and Messrs. Borden and Butler, was selected by the Chamber of Commerce to attend to this matter. We appreciate the noble spirit of our teachers, who not only give their services to the betterment of the world, but also give their money to help win the war for Democracy. 175 £mit- One of ouj ' YU CA ll i r1 b day Tar tie 5 _ 176 j£- W H % Annual Art Exhibit The Elson Art Exhibit held in the Library Building October 25, 26, 27, contained more than two hundred of the finest carbon photogravures and hand-color prints of the masterpieces of the art of .different countries and periods. This year ' s exhibition had an unusually interesting feature in the loan of a small collection of pictures by an American artist. Many of the students and townspeople studied the collection at the admission price of ten cents. The proceeds were used to purchase four pictures for the school. These pictures are " The Wood Gatherers, " by Corot ; " The Knitting Lesson, " by Millet ; " The Fog Warning, " by Homer, and " The Boy With the Lute, " by Carpaccio. Besides these, two prize pictures were given to those selling the greatest number of tickets. One, " Sunset, " by Innes, was won by a pupil from the Training School ; the second, " The Lake.

Hallowe ' en Party Hallowe ' en was very appropriately celebrated by a masquerade party given in the gymnasium to the girls of the College on October 28. Before entering the land of enchantment each guest had to jump the broomstick, in order to dispel all evil spirits. Ghosts came in an abundance, also witches, ballet dancers and a host of historic characters. The Palmist, the Dealer in Futures and the Vault of Death were a few of the attractions. Peanuts and red stick candy were served from a huge caldron by two witches. All of the guests enjoyed a very bewitching evening. 177 S - fl " 178 C r ' M ' " 9 3-Lsrr-Lot The Cu-cllS liuisoLnce " RoyaJL Lllxu.)

The royal chariot, which was preceded hy the band, bore her majesty, the Queen, and her attendants. In close succession, followed by Jumbo, the most aged of his tribe, and his baby brother, and a camel captured in the Sahara Desert. Next in a long line of march came the " Campus Cat, " confined for the sake of the common- wealth ; Leo, the king of beasts, led by his beloved mistress, and Zu-Zu, the snake woman, with her writh- ing reptiles. One very important feature of the parade was " The Fam- ily, " consisting of Ma, Pa and the thirteen promising " kids, " who espe- cially enjoyed asking questions and annoying the fierce beasts. A mul- titude of standard bearers, un- equaled by Caesar ' s very own. brought up the rear, while a bevy of clowns ran hither and thither in uncon- trolled delight. At The Park The happy crowd followed the wonderful parade to the Park to view the afternoon performances. Their eyes were greeted with sideshows, bright-colored posters and a multi-colored mass of clowns, while their ears were filled with the cries of " Peanuts ! " " Popcorn ! " " Chewing Gum ! " " Right this way to see the wild man, " etc. There were swift races between the ani- mals and jockey-riding by beautiful senoritas. Daring rope-walkers held the audience spellbound, and the performances were punctuated by the stunts of the clowns and the " family. " In fact, the spectacle was so brilliant and the feats so wonderful that even the airplanes hovered in the air. enchanted. MISS HILDA L. HUGON, Circus Queen 180 VNY 1 jre ' o-t- W T?-«,.U Aj cixXA ' Cv d 18! t£ The grand concert given in the auditorium was the climax of the wonderful performance of Circus Day, and it far exceeded any performance ever presented by the famous Barnum Bailey or the famed Ringling Brothers. The first number was both instructive and entertaining. It was a laboratory experiment showing the mighty struggle between gastric juice and various boarding-house dishes. Beans, hash and ice cream were easy victims, but soggy dumpling were victorious. An attractive feature of the evening was the display of some marvel- ously beautiful statuary. One of the most comic numbers was the hypno- tist, a native of India, whose magic power was equaled only by his marked politeness. Caesar, Mark Antony and Cleopatra held the audience spell- bound when they assumed their ancient roles. But from these days of old the scene shifted to a modern educational doll shop, which portrayed real Normal life. At various intervals there appeared renowned singers, won- derfully endowed artists, famously gifted poets, and dual personalities, all of whom were genuinely appreciated by an enthusiastic audience. The program was concluded by the singing of " America, " and " The Star Spangled Banner, " and by the presentation of a tableau, " The Goddess of Liberty. " Thus ended the grand finale of the unequaled Senior Circus, which was for the enjoyment of the entire student body, to the glory of the Senior Class and to the honor of our Alma Mater. fy E$ Cg3 On the evening of November 17 the Y. W. C. A. entertained the girls whose birthdays came in November with a Spinsters ' Tea. All came dressed as prim spinsters, and each carried the photograph of her lover of girlhood days. During the evening the photographs were fondled and admired, while extremely romantic stories were told of love in bygone clays. All of the spinsters greatly enjoyed this confidential party. $3 $3 $3 For various reasons four members of the Yucca Staff were unable to return to school in the fall. The Publications Council chose the following students to fill the vacancies: Paul Taylor, Editor-in-Chief; W. B. Graham, Athletic Editor; Myrtle Lindsay, Art Editor, and Fred Kimbell, Facts and Follies Editor. The original staff welcomed their new co-laborers, and all worked harmoniously and earnestly toward producing the best college annual in Texas. 183 5 b S9 sJi-o Hi Ttun a " Merr y Qo Ttc u_n_d. ,jr tlp S s h w C5 Is ' nf " She swei ' 184 I Oh CLilnt U " QfrcUT.cL, See bel-e comes +hs ELe p h.eu-»-t , let 1-n.e.

They soon realized that she is not only an artist, but is also a most agreeable human being, and they informally opened their hearts to her as to a friend. A program of sixteen selections ran the gamut of lighter numbers to the pretentious aria from " Mirielli, " affording the singer ample opportu- nity to display the wide range of her voice, as well as her artistic versa- tility. During the evening she sang " Saparazine, " putting into it much feeling and pathos. In her gracious desire to please her audience. Miss Case responded to nine encores. Two of these numbers were especially appropriate — " The Battle Hymn of the Republic, " and " The Star Spangled Banner. " Charles Gilbert Spross was at the piano, and thus the audience had the opportunity of hearing two great artists. $ $J Y. M. C. A. War Work On Wednesday morning, December 5. Mr. Heinzman, a representative of the Y. M. C. A., presented to the students and Faculty one of the most vivid pictures of war conditions that has ever been given in our college. He had been in France, and spoke with full knowledge both of the conditions that have existed in the prisoner-of-war camps and of the work of the Y. M. C. A. in lessening the hardships and bettering the lives of the men. He asked that every person do his share to help in carrying on this great work. Although the students and Faculty did not have much more money than they needed, they were glad to sacrifice, in order to do their bit toward helping the soldiers and sailors at the front. They responded liberally to the call for help, and pledged about $2,400.00 to this Christlike work. 186 o - w 3 % Musiidl I .xprejil4Sr )n 3( iXe of ' vwaftVei- 5o.TisHine»Shaa.v His - Ui- 6h.it Our Tresicl » «-• • Hiah and- Wide Settle, more 3rr LLc.S — Servor Ltd- igh V?3pira.ti taUoi) - ■ ■ ■ ■ _ .■,. „ ■ ■ ,■.■ .■ llllLllHl i lH " ■ 187 I Community Concert by the Choral Clnb Those who attended the Community Concert given by the Choral Club on December 10, 1917, were delightfully entertained. The program was especially suitable for the social center meeting, such as we all must have when we become teachers, and consisted of chorus singing by the club, solos by different members, and an octette by members of the Faculty.

Twelve men had been chosn previ- ously from the Reagan and the Lee Literary Societies to contest for the honor of representing our school in the debates with the other schools. The questions discussed by the men were as follows : 1. Resolved, That the Initiative, Referendum and Recall Should Be Adopted in Affirmative — R. K. Chain. Negative — R. C. Pooi.E, A. D. Moore. 2. Resolved, That We Should Have an Educational Test for Voting in Texas. Affirmative — Ray Tucker, G. H. Brown. Negative — R. C. Coffee, B. T. Walters. 3. Resolved, That Women Should Be Granted Suffrage on Equal Terms with Men. Affirmative— A. B. Allen. Negative — J. T. Houser, Manual Lucas. The following men were finally selected by the judges: A. B.

Walters 188 " 9 The Normal Red Cross is a part of the Denton Chapter, and all the work is done under the auspices of the local directors. A large majority of the Normal students belong to the Red Cross. A number of the girls, at their vacant periods, make hospital supplies and do knitting in the sewing laboratory in the Manual Arts Building. This work is directed by Miss Appleby, together with some of the ladies of the Denton Chapter. Other girls fold bandages and make surgical, dressings on Mondays at the work- room at the Christian Church. Thus doing their bits, the girls have been highly praised by those in charge of the work. Cg3 $J E$J My Hosiery The hours I spent on thee, dear sock, Are as a string of pearls to me: I count them over by the weary clock, My rosary! Ry rosary! First two I knit, then two I purl. And round the leg I slowly reel; Now joyful paeans to the heavens I hurl — I ' ve turned the heel! Oh, knotted ends that scratch and burn, Oh stitch that dropped — uneven row — I kiss each blight, and strive at last to learn To reach the toe, O Lord, to reach the toe! — New York Times. 189 % The American Girl On Tr ial On the night of the 13th of December a very interesting pageant, " The American Girl on Trial. " was given by the Y. W. C. A. girls to the entire student body and visitors. The theme of the pageant was the trial of the American Girl concerning her part in the present war. She was accused of being both frivolous and selfish, and, as a witness to this, girls from Russia, France and the Orient contrasted the gay, frivolous life of the American Girl with the sufferings of the women of Europe. During the trial, tableaux, showing the social functions, games and sports of the American Girls, made the scene very impressive. However, after the defendant, the Y. Y. C. A. Girl, had pointed out the Red Cross work, the knitting and the sewing that had been accomplished, she was declared " Not Guilty! " Miss Devanlt The second lyceum number was given Saturday evening. December 15th. by Miss Annie Theresa Devault, who read " Polly of the Circus. " She showed great versatility in the inimitable impersonation of the different char- acters, and she made each of us feel a sympathetic understanding of Polly and her friends. Too much cannot be said in praise of Miss Devault. who is known in the professional world as a " repeater. " She so reflected the life of each character that at the end of her charming program all felt that they had -been in the presence of a true artist. 190 % ■ ® i ThzC cvs QUEEN en juuusa m J i Senior - Circus ■ Ye JOLLY JOKErf uAUOj n LAyohA .Gncw 191 C3 All ■ z -Jre Tfcr saooss of the pfarr Mis?

Signal Corps, were guests of honor at a luncheon given by Dr. Bruce, on Wednesday, January 9, 1918, at 12:30 P. M. in the dining room in the Manual Arts Building. This is the first time the guests of a Denton luncheon came by air route. The young men, headed by Major H. E. Hartney and Adjutant Lieutenant James F. Pierce, flew over from Hicks Field for the occasion. During the serving of the informal luncheon, to which the visitors and other guests paid tribute, a talk was made by Mr. J. N. Rayzor, who wished the aviators Godspeed and a safe return. Major Hartney, who has been the victor in several airplane duels on the western front, gave many of his hearers their clearest knowledge of the conditions surrounding modern fight- ing. He also pictured the anticipated work of his corps in actual service. Denton people were glad to hear him speak so highly of Lieutenant Alfred Grant, one of their own boys. Adjutant Lieutenant Pierce, in behalf of the aviators, expressed appreciation and gratitude for the occasion. In a few appropriate remarks Dr. Bruce told the visitors that he was glad to have them, that he hoped they would come back to the Normal College again after the war, and that he deeply appreciated, both for the College and for the citizens of Denton, their expressions of gratitude. CjJ $J Ballard-Sigworth Recital On Wednesday evening, January 16th, a recital was given by Misses Ballard and Sigworth of the Normal College Faculty. Miss Ballard rendered many beautiful selections from our great artists. Her sweetness of tone and versatility of expression made the numbers very enjoyable. Miss Sigworth read in a most pleasing manner, and her personal charm added greatly to her well-selected readings. Beautiful bouquets were received by both artists. After the recital Miss Price honored Misses Ballard and Sigworth and the other new members of the Faculty with an informal reception in the girls ' reading room in the Library Building. 194 ' OHY Wa 195 JS Evan Williams Evan Williams, celebrated American tenor, singing at the Normal College Auditorium, January 19, presented one of the most unusual programs offered by any artist this season. While every kind of music had its place, the conceit as a whole was distinguished by its rather popular appeal, its human touch, and its utter informality. A thing which probably aroused unconscious enthusiasm was that the entire program was in English. It certainly seemed Mr. Williams ' purpose to bring good spirits and happiness to his hearers, for while many of his selections had a purely lyrical quality, and one or two carried a dramatic or tearful tone, the note of gaiety and cheerfulness dominated the evening. Among his war songs " Tim Rooney ' s at the Fightin ' , " a typical Irish song with a lilt and a swing, is sure to become a favorite everywhere. " Mother, My Dear, " and " When Our Boys Come Home, " were also especially well received. $J The Press Club Party On Monday evening, January 21, the Press Club was honored with a tacky party at the home of Miss Blanton. A snowy, starlit night enhanced the heart ; so, when the company assembled, each looked his tackiest and felt his gayest. Following the grand march, to the tune of " They Say the Press Club, It Ain ' t Got No Style, " there was an exciting suitcase race, after which tables were arranged and progressive bunco was played. Miss Vaughan and Mr. Lewis were honored with the prizes for being the tackiest of the tacky. Delicious refreshments were served, and the merry guests vanished into the night taking with them a warmer feeling for Miss Wilkin. Miss Blanton and Mr. Woolley, to whom they were indebted for such a rift of sun- shine among the troublous clouds of themes and lecture notes. 196 « " 197 tsm r% The Chinese Wedding As one of its monthly missionary programs, the Y. W. C. A. presented a Chinese wedding on Thursday evening, January 21st. All the girls made ideal Chinese men and women, and the bride, adorned with her scarlet bridal robes, was indeed characteristic of the subjects of the great Yellow Dragon. This little playlet very vividly exemplified the uncivilized customs of the Chinese, and it made us all realize their dire need of Christianity ' s civilizing influence. i(r 198 199 -r im iPirs irriaiioiii oi ill a £j m ' Vic a laij On Saturday morning, February 2, at the chapel hour, the students and Faculty of the College, together with many visitors and friends, wit- nessed the presentation of the service flag. The program opened with the entire assembly ' s singing " The Son of God Goes Forth to War. " Rev. Charles M. Collins gave the invocation, after which Miss Louise Winston sang in a beautiful manner " Somewhere in France. " Miss Garrison then read a poem entitled " The Call. " ' The service flag was raised as the entire audience stood. There are four hundred stars in the flag, each star representing some former student now in the United States service. Dr. Bruce made a very appropriate presen- tation speech, and then introduced Mr. J. N. Rayzor, who also pictured in expressive words the glory of the service that the boys are giving their country. The program was concluded by the singing of " America, " including the fifth stanza. $j cJJ $3 Though we of the Normal College considered ourselves highly favored in Anna Case, we hardlv dared to let ourselves dream that we should ever 201 f m ■: ' j listen to the real Schumann-Heink in Denton. Through the persuasive efforts of the Lyceum Committee, however, we were given this rare pleasure when Schumann-Heink sang on February 16 to a great and appreciative audience. Nor did the noted singer consent reluctantly to appear before an audience here when she was informed that she would sing to a large company of stu- dents, for she is thoroughly in sympathy with youth, its joys, its dreams, its ambitions. We had all heard of this great contralto. Her life, with its disap- pointments and brilliant successes, was familiar to everyone. The knowledge that she has four sons in the great war and that she has been made an Honor- ary Colonel in the army of the United States heightened our interest in her. We were anxious to see and hear this woman who has felt and experienced so much in her remarkably varied life as a mother and a great artist. Nor were we disappointed, for she was at her best. Schumann-Heink is a singer whose voice has for a long period of years preserved its beauty and charm. There is something strikingly and appealingly personal in her singing. We realized that she felt genuinely everything that she sang. So perfect and so natural was her interpretation that we forgot the singer and willingly followed her emotional lead. When she was sad, we were sad ; when she was gay, we were gay. She held us throughout in almost perfect rapport. She has the true artist ' s gift of selecting a program that appeals to all. Her songs ranged from the rather heavy dramatic arias from " Ronaldo " and " La Prophete " to the light, swinging lilt of the " Kerry Dance; " from the poignantly sweet lullabies to the rousing patriotic airs. Surely no one can sing lullabies as does Schumann-Heink. What deep, tender notes! What living, breathing expression of the mother-heart ! She herself is a mother, and in her voice there is all the tender affection, all the pain and pity, all the soothing caress that only a mother ' s voice can impart. Yet her powers of dramatic interpretation are no less marvelous. " The Cry of Rachel " stirred many of us as did no other number on her program. And after her popular ' and timely song, " When the Boys Come Home, " the audience fully under- stood one reason why she is so much beloved by the soldiers in all the camps where she sings. Cfc CjJ C$3 The Stunt Party On Saturday evening, February 23rd, the Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A. gave their annual stunt party. Many of the guests were dressed in old Colonial costumes. After a short period of informal conversation, the company was favored with a few real " stunts. " The " Village Choir " was enthusiastically encored ; our magician, Mr. Thurman, displayed some more of his magic power; Mr. Mowrey gave a " Loose-Jointed Exposition, " and our national anthems were played on the " Humanophone, " one of the latest of musical inventions. Delicious punch was served to the merry crowd, who dbnced the Virginia Reel and chatted till a late hour. 202 s 203 C - O - : ,. fc u.t JLck.k ) joae. 9))orh, oS U - ' •r - ' 04 OT r B 1 Aesthetic and Interpretive Dancing On Saturday evening, March 9th, Miss Marie Clark ' s classes in aes- thetic and interpretive dancing gave a most interesting program for Red Cross benefit. Both Normal students and Training School pupils participated in numbers representing the dances of many nations. One of the most enter- taining features was the " Nightingale, " in which a whole flock of intellec- tual nightingales flitted across the stage. Among the prettiest numbers were " Daisies " — interpretive dance by Jewel Hooper, and " Polka Miniature, " by Thelma Clements. Both of these tiny miidens were as graceful as fairies. Other numbers deserving special mention are " Seven Jumps, " " Castalana, " " Her Warrior, " " Jean et Jeanette, " " Saihara, " " Humoreske, " and " The Wooden Shoes, " all of which eloquently bespeak the excellent training Miss Clark has given her " rhythmic throng. " A. M. Glee Club On Friday evening, March 15, the students received a rare treat when the A. M. Glee Club gave a concert in the College Auditorium. The pro- gram consisted of a miscellaneous collection of songs of love, home and coun- try, all of which were vociferously encored. The boys presented a crew of homesick sailors, and they sang songs such as a crowd of forlorn " rookies " would sing. Some of these were " Sailing, " " Life on the Ocean Wave, " " Send Me Away With a Smile, " " Dixie. " and " Keep the Home Fires Burning. " The young ladies merit special mention. Their numbers were appre- ciated and enjoyed by all. The orchestra also contributed much to the even- ing ' s pleasure. But the " colored " comedian captivated the entire audience. His well-rendered songs were equaled only by his practical jokes. He responded cheerfully to repeated encores, and, bereft of breath, finally left the auditorium. The program was concluded by singing " The Star Spangled Banner, " and the Glee Club departed, bearing with it a cordial invitation to come again. 205 • ' l - ' (■ ■H Sfe 207 c (Jl 1$- JUS 1 % «v ' ?

Upon entering, if you see we are very busy, talk loudly or whistle loudly. If neither of these has the desired effect, sing. 4. Put your feet upon the table or walk heavily across the floor. Either of these will be of great assistance to those who are writing. 5. Wallow upon the bed; fill up our waste basket. We are very fond of keeping house. 6. If you see we are very busy getting our lessons, do not hesitate to start a conversation. We are heartily fond of talking to six or eight persons at one time. 7. Profanity is at all times expected.

(With apologies to a well-known song) When you come to the end of a toilsome day, And you sit alone with your thought — While the curfew rings with its warning lay For the boy that the night has caught — Do you think what the end of this toil- some day Can mean to a Junior Four, Alone in his room on Avenue A With his Vergil and prose propped before? Well, this is the end of that toilsome day, Near the end of the semester, too; It brings him a fear that is haunting and gray, And pen and theme tablet — a vision so blue; For Mem ' ry has painted this toilsome day With bad grades that never will fade; And he finds, at the end of the weary day That of Vergil no friend he has made. — Katherine Shaw. Coming Fashions 254 JiJil W ft Ht Daily 255 f -Q2fi A little bit of sorrow An ' a little bit o ' song, Today an ' then tomorrow, As the old world bumps along; A little bit o ' kickin ' , Over things misunderstood- Somebody gets a lickin ' , But it won ' t do any good. Even back in Eden ' s gladness There were songs and sorrows mixed. Life is always bringin ' sadness, And we try to have it fixed But we may as well look pleasant, For each day we must agree That the way it is at present Is the way it ' s got to be. — O. R. Chinn.

And the shiv ' ring students passing, Freezing come and freezing go; When the winds are blowing fiercely, With a wild and unknown woe, We will think of gas, and love it As we did once long ago. In the gloaming, O ye students, Think not bitterly of it, Though it passed away in silence, Left us freezing, gave us " grit, " Now our hearts are crushed with long- ing, In our tireless rooms we sit.

But when as Sophomores they come, A dim light seems to steal From out the sternness of his ' face The student now can feel A kindliness and strength of will His grimness can ' t conceal. The Juniors come with bounding steps To greet their Prexy dear, And in his warm handclasp receive Courge, strength and cheer To meet the problems that must come Throughout their Junior year. But when the Seniors come around And measure strength with strength They bring their homage and their love, For they can see, at length, How through the years their feet were led From weakness unto strength.

ANY FOOL can knock. IF YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST in life at all, you have to have some public pride. NOW, the most evil thing a school can contend with is this everlasting, uncalled-for knocking of its own students. THIS FACT people are coming to realize more and more, every day. SO IT ' S PLAIN, to establish yourself clearly in the eyes of your fellow-students as one miserable, miserable traitor, the best thing for you to do is to speak a malicious word about your own school. ACTUAL HISTORY HAS IT, and all good reasoning applauds, that a school — anywhere, any size, any time — is not going to develop without some boosting from its own influential students. IF THE STUDENTS of a school can ' t say a good word for it, it ' s reasonable to think that there ' s not much to the school — or to the students — one or the other.
