C. in all its phases, to portray the life, environment, and activities of those, both students and faculty, who made this institution possible. With this purpose in view we present for your consideration the Nineteen Hundred Nineteen Yucca. TET|! recognize their heroism and to do honor to their memory, we lovingly dedicate this, the thirteenth volume of the Yucca, to the Normal boys whose stars of blue on our Service Flag have been changed to stars of gold. ific -kik J.H. •• rr . « i. i ■; ■:Mm{m: i !

President OUR FIRST DEGREES te- HE session of 1918-19 marks an epoch in the history of ■ J our school, and of the other Normal Colleges of the X State as well, in the fact that it is the first year in which the course of study, as carried out, includes four years of college work leading to the bachelor ' s degree. Though each returning May for seventeen years has seen a troop of white-clad maidens and eager youths go forth from the campus of the North Texas State Normal College, each carrying the coveted document freshly adorned with the College seal, it is reserved for the eighteenth to see, mingled with this familiar company, a small group, clad in cap and gown, bearing diplomas which pronounce them the possessors of a degree. To those graduates who have included the study of a foreign language in their course the Board of Regents has chosen to award the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education ; to others, the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education. This departure from the old order of things is significant in its bearing upon the progress of education in our State. It means that the teachers ' colleges, having attained full stature, are no longer limiting their function of teacher-training to the end of training teachers for the elementary schools, as was generally considered to be the case while they were only of junior college rank; but with a standard four-years ' college course in operation, these institutions may begin to realize the end for which the Normal College exists — that is, the special training of teachers for the public schools, including all the grades. Not only is it gratifying for their own sake to see our Texas colleges raising their standards and rising in rank to the level of the older colleges of the nation, but it is particularly gratifying to realize how greatly they have increased their opportunity to be of service to the whole educational system of the State. The crying need of our public schools is for better trained teachers. Those who teach in high schools should have at least four years of study beyond the high school course, and this preparation should include professional training. The number of teachers with such preparation is at present totally inadequate to supply the demand, and would naturally remain so if the four-year courses for the training of teachers were limited to the educational departments of colleges and universities established primarily for other lines of technical or professional training. The Normal Colleges, distributed as they are throughout the various sections of the State, attract many students who would find it impossible to attend the other institutions; the number of college students is consequently increased, and the source of supply of thoroughly equipped teachers is correspondingly enlarged. So we welcome upon our campus the advent of cap and gown and the establishment of college tradition. And, as a last word, we bid God-speed to the five noble pioneers who with loyalty unshaken by war or drouth or the lure of well-trodden paths, forged ahead through the virgin wilderness and blazed a trail which countless others in the coming years will follow. rfviNGMmopY of V ' " " i ' " c iB aprittg!

The yugca •• 1fc ' The yugca ••• •• is tHE YUGCA •• ilr The yucca • 1(k The yugca W P % jp w% THE HYPOCRITE By Caspar Casparis Dio§;ene5 being asked what animal is the most dangerous, answered : ' Of wild animals, the slanderer; of tame animals, the flatterer Give me a man upon whose word I can without regret rely; A man whose word, whenever heard, His secret acts do not belie; A candid man, that ' s straight and square, Who has no motive to conceal; A man that ' s frank and free and fair. That feigns not what he does not feel. The hypocrite, he far outranks All other fakirs, cheats, and frauds, All charlatans and mountebanks, Wliose actions none but Satan lauds. The hypocrite ' s a petty thief. That feigns a feeling not sincere; By guile he purloins our belief. And veiled, attacks us from the rear. The sneak that steals his neighbor ' s wares In inky darkness of the night. Is not the fiend that sets his snares With wiles and smiles in broad daylight. The highway robber, who with gun. Despoils the stranger on his way, We all need take less pains to shun Than him that flatters to betray. The scurvy knave that will essay To mislead him who asks his help, But will defer from day to day. Is more depraved than mangy whelp Of snarling wolf or whining cur. That ' s scorned and scouted in contempt; That ' s put to death without demur; But, strange to say, the knave ' s exempt. The viper ' s tooth ' tis well to fear; His deadly venoms paralyze; But if we guard our steps with care, We ' re safe. He uses no disguise. He leaves behind a well marked track, WTiene ' er he crawls across our path. He seldom ventures an attack Unless he be provoked to wrath. The yugca •• The vicious beast is lured by thirst And mad desire for human gore. But if we watch we see him first And fell him to the earth before He lacerates us with his claws. But we can ' t dodge the hypocrite, That masks his face, conceals his cause; But duped and flattered, we submit. The man who dares not face the foe That red with anger seeks to slay. We brand a coward, so all may know The craven heart that runs away. But weak, ourselves, we all condone The sycophantic, bland, poltroon. Who lacks the courage to disown What may not leave him quite immune. And yet we all who know his breed, And know the poison in his veins. Let him still live and thrive in greed. When he should rot in clanking chains. Give me a man. a candid man. Though blunt and brusque and hoarse, That speaks his mind and shows his hand. Though rough and soiled and coarse. The yugca ClA55r5 V •• ' A " THE COLLEGE SENIORS HE College Seniors, though few, make up in quality what they lack in actual numbers. Each in his own way is illustrious, notable (not notorious), and distinguished. There is a certain general distinction attaching to the class as a whole, because they are the first to get degrees from this school, blazing the trail and all that, you know. There is a rule that the first shall be last, but then — there are exceptions to all rules, and we hope that the case of the College Seniors will be one of them. Really, each student in his own way is representative of the school along some line, and each leaves behind him a record of scholarship of which he may well be proud. Takino them up in alphabetical order (two of the alphabet include them all), we come first to Mr. Graham. Remember it is the alphabetical, and not the chronological arrangement which we are pursuing. Wynne has been prominent in many ways since he entered the school. He played football in 1917-18 and 1918-19, and basketball in 1915-16, 17-18, tnd 18-19; was Athletic Editor of the ' Tucca " in 1917-18; was Associate Editor-in-Chief of the " Yucca " in 1918-19; was a member of the Students ' Publications Council in 1917-18. and 18-19; was a member of the Press Club in 1917-18 and 1918-19; a Reagan; Top Sergeant in the S. A. T. C, and President of the College Senior Class. Next comes Mr. Guest, whose ability seems to be evidenced most decidedly in two activities — namely. Athletics, and driving a King car. The school is proud of " Fatty " for his work in football in 1918-19. Miss Hancock is third, " middle-man " of the five. She has been prominent in the school throughout her attendance here. She was a member of the Students ' Publications Council, and secretary of that organization 1917-18 and 18-19. She was secretary of the Press Club in 1917-18, and was a prominent Mary Arden. We believe Kathryn would be a good lawyer; not that she has any of the well known characteristics of the profession, but in her picture she looks as if she would make good doing that or almost anything else. Miss Hatch comes next, with a splendid grade-record. Eva was a member of the Students ' Publication Council 1917-18. and 18-19; a member of the Mary Arden Club, and of the Lillie Bruce Dramatic Club. Mr. Horton brings up the rear. Carl is really overworked, as he himself has said. He is a strong Reagan, and was president of that organization in the second term of 1918. He was vice-president of the Senior College Class, vice-president and a cabinet member of the Y. M. C. A., a member of the Lillie Bruce Dramatic Club, and sergeant in the S. A. T. C. The yugca A, w 1 1 ™ Tsr College Seniors W. B. GRAHAM Denton Well built and fast, Graham has shown real worth in football and basketball. As a result, he has guided and led his team to many victories. We might say he has done his part for the class in Athletics, but, besides, he has shown true efficiency and devotion to studies and duty. Usually he appears congenial, pleasant and frank; but at times he becomes painfully sarcastic, much to his own detriment. As we see that public opinion never interferes with his ideas of right and wrong, it seems that a certain success will be his. OFFICERS OF COLLEGE JUNIOR CLASS Wynne B. Graham President Karl P. Horton Vice-President Eva Hatch Secretary E. S. Guest Treasurer Kathryn Hancock Class Representative tHE YUG0A • ilr I E. S. GUEST Pittsburg An independent, imperturbable fellow, con- tent to take life in an easy going way (fishing or hunting). Work offers few attractions to him, and he manages to slide by on a minimum of effort, yet his work is always well done. Although we would question his attraction to labor, nevertheless he has been a " busily en- gaged " man for some time. He is a happy mixture of efficiency and indifference, of deter- mination and ireedoni from worry. KATHRYN HANCOCK Paris She comes from Paris, thougli at times she seems to contemplate moving to D.iUas or even to Fort Worth. She is an exceedingly well poised young person, with a well developed judgment for the fitness of things; a college beauty, and yet she is not vain; an " ■. " " student, yet one who, as any one will testify, thoroughly believes in having a good time; one of " Uncle Joe " Pender " s flock, and yel she is a suffragette. Naturally, therefore, college activities are much better for her participation in them. This is especially true of that world famous organiza- tion, " The Four Roses. " fiiE YUGCA -A- W ' ' AttAt EVA VIRGINIA HATCH Edison said: " Talent is inspiration; genius is perspiration. " ' Sucli is lier motto. She has fought hard, while here, for a place in all activities. It may truly be said that there is no activity in which she has not had some say. She has the wonderful ability of getting results in any undertaking. Hers is the will, regardless of all obstacles, that aspires to accomplish rapidly any assumed task, and then to do a little more. KARL P. HORTON He wears glasses at times, has a very learned air, and explains things in a quick, halting tone with a fussy little habit of pushing up his cuffs after every fifth word. When he came to lis he was perhaps a little too serious and con- scientious. Although he has changed to a great extent now, we feel that his determination and ambition will carry him along. He has gone through College, reticent rather than a mixer; but we appreciate his capabilities, for he pushes himself along, even though he does it very quietly — except when reading jokes in the Library.

Miss Margery Ballard Director The Community Chorus, which meets for a sing-song once every week, was organized to meet the demand for the kind of music that all students who were at all musically inclined might enjoy and take part in. The songs used are old melodies, popular army and navy songs, patriotic songs, and college and glee songs. Music of this nature has had a great impetus during the last four years, and particularly during the war has it been found that our people need more music that all can appreciate and that will serve to weld us together as a Nation, musically. Thus our college musical life has seemed to demand more of such music. The Community Chorus has served this purpose, as well as having been a pleasure to the students, the Training School children, and the townspeople who have participated.

The yugca • ilr THE FORGIVING The day was hot; the copper sky Did bum above the desert dust; Half mad I stood, while in my eye Were hatred and disgust. The man crouched low against a rock, A cowering and a trembling thing. While o ' er his forehead a sweaty lock Did seem to writhe and cling. His tongue was out; a deathly grin Did mar and twist his ugly face; God! I could not kill him then! There in that lonely place. My knife up flew; the blow was stayed; I could not, dared not let it fall! The empty air about me swayed, While heart to heart did call. The day died out; close up I crept; My food and drink I gave the man ; And th ere in the desert dust we slept As the forgiving can.

Before baseball workouts began, the Coach had men work- ing out in basketball in order that they might gain strength and wind. With only three letter men, Mc- Kay began to build a team, and this proved to be no easy task; but by constant work, he round- ed out a good nine before S. S. McKay, Coach the season opened with a game with T. C. U. This game was lost by a close score. The hopes of having a championship team received their first discouragement soon after t!ie game, as a result of injuries to some players and the calling to the service of others. A shift in the line brought disorganization, and at no time after the first game was the Normal able to present her full strength to her opponents. Only a few games were played with College teams, since it was very hard to arrange a schedule due to war conditions. Nevertheless the team won nearly lialf of their games and proved that they had the determination to fight until the last. This success was due to the efficient coaching of McKay and the spirit of the team as a whole. The yugca • Hodges, Captain Second Base Too much cannot be said of Shirley, as he was one of the most valuable men on the team. He is one of those graceful fielders who make the most difficult catches with ease. His batting and hard hitting were to be wondered at. He has a beautiful swing that very often connects with the ball, which is caused, generally, to go shooting over the left fielder ' s head. He led the team in stolen bases and was among the first in batting. He was captain and set a good example for all to follow. The team of 1919 will miss the services of this heady player, who will be with Texas U. Wilkerson Short Stop " Dago " came to us with experience and skill as an infielder. He was one of the smallest men on the team, but he could be depended on at all times to handle the ball with that quickness that only a baseball player possesses. His ability at the stick is shown by his position as the lead-off man, and he was outclassed by few in running bases. He will be with the 1919 team. Strong Center Field " Bill " was that old boy who chunked the bi ' .ll in from center field, and, when in at bat. slammed it out again. He did very little talking but made up for it in his batting and fielding. His fielding was nearly perfect, and he brought the grandstand to their feet many times by a brilliant catch. He is not with the team this year, and we will be lucky to find a man to fill " Bill ' s " shoes. teE YUGCA • 1fc ' V Hester Pitcher Beason is ihe little man who can take defeat, when the team is not behind him. with a smile and work just that much harder. He pitched good games last year, but the team gen- erally did not support him. He ' s a hard worker, and if that carries a man through, he will get through. The 1919 team will be strengthened by the work of Hester. % V Cave Catcher Porter was our " peppy " hard working catcher, who was always talking the boys up and keeping the opponents guessing the next play. He was an old man, having played on the 1917 team, and he knew the game well. Very few balls ever got by Porter, and he could always be depended on to advance men or bring them in. He will be with the team this year and much is expected of him. Hufjhes Right Field " Bill ' s " real |)osition was behind the bat, but he was switched to the outer garden and conducted himself well in that position throughout the season. He was a good man at the bat and often hit for extra bases. The team will miss " Bill " in the line-up this season. ' ' v — The yugca ••••••• Bradley Third Base " Dode " has a mighty good throw from third to first, and it was very seldom that a man Iseat a hunt out on him. He made some brilliant stops around third sack, and, although he is not a hard and heavy hitter, his hits came at a con- venient time. He will he with the 1919 team. % Cross Left Field " Ed " was a hard hitter as well as a hard worker. He covered lots o f ground out in left field and made some difficult catches. He could be depended on in a pinch and was a good base runner. Ed will not he with the 1919 team and his services will be missed. Gainbil First Base Gambil was the man that refereed many of out football and basketball games. He entered school in the spring and showed good form around the initial sack. He was cool-headed and could be depended on in a pinch. Although he was not a hard iiitter, his hits often came when needed. The yugca •• •• ■-t. Daviir Out Field " Shorty " was one of the fastest men on the team, and, although very small, he often pilfered the bases. He was not a hard hitter, but he was a safe one. and often firew passes to first sack. Sasser Pitcher " Jenkins " pitched a good, steady game and would often excite the batter by floating a slow ball across the plate. He used his head at all times, and this habit, combined with his control, often proved fatal to opposing batters. He was not an extraordinary batter, but then this is not expected of a pitcher. Ctf— C ;« — - Z — e r.d-6, 114 The yucca •• iAr The yugca ■I •• 1 j FOOTBALL | A. ][s= a Review of the 1918 Season To the casual observer the football season of the Normal might appear to have been far from satisfactory, if not entirely unsatisfactory. But if you will take into consideration the aspect of things at the first of the season, and the unusual hardships the team suffered during this time, it will seem to have been a good team to have made the record they did. In September Coach St. Clair mustered his forces on the field and found that he was confronted with the task of making a team with only four " T " men and a bunch of scrub and high school men to pick from. This he started to do, with the energy and patience which is so characteristic of his work. The few games that were scheduled were hard ones, some of the best teams in the state being in- cluded; so St. Clair set to work to make speed and team work take the place of beef and strength. Before the season had well opened, only one game having been played, four of our men were sent to Officers ' Training Camp, two of these being old letter men. This left only two " T " men to finish the season. In spite of these difficulties and the fact that everything seemed against her, the Normal did not put up a bad fight; indeed, she made a record to be proud of. The final score stood: One game won, one tied, and two lost, out of the four played. The first game was with Austin College on our home ground. This proved to be one of the hardest fought games of the season, and, although our boys suffered defeat by the score of 9 to 7, they did not lack the fight and spirit of a good football team. Every inch of Austin College ' s ground was contested, and until the final whistle blew, the score was in doubt. I ' ntil tlie fourth quarter, the Normal retained a lead of one point, the score being 7 to 6. In this quarter, with the ball on the Normal ' s 25-yard line, Austin College kicked a field goal, thereby winning the game. Austin College proved superior in line bucks, and through this means their first touchdown was scored. The Normal left the field defeated in score but not in spirit. Then came the game with T. C. U. The score, 39 to 0, tells the story better than words could. Suffice to say that the team put up a good fight when the odds The yugca " W " f W % fI w were against them and there was almost no chance to win. They were outweighed at least ten pounds to the man. On the offensive, they were not able to do much, as the team work was not thoroughly organized, due to the absence of two ' " backs " who had been called to O. T. C. a day before; but on the defensive they did brilliant work. Time after time T. C. I ' , was held for downs. The game was a hard one from start to finish, and before it ended four Normal boys had been knocked out. The bovs returned from Fort Worth with the score against them but not beaten. They felt that they had simply been outclassed, and set to work to take on Durant Normal in the near future. In the early part of November the team departed for Durant, where they played the Durant Normal, a close and hotly contested game which ended with each team having seven points to their credit. Each team fought hard for a victory, but neither was able to gain a decisive advantage over the other. The short season came to a close when the Normal met and easily defeated the Decatur team on the local grounds. The Normal showed spurts of speed at times during the game, and piled up a score of 25 points, while Decatur was held to 3 points, which came when their fullback kicked a goal from the field. Thus ended the season for 191 i!. Though the record is not very bright, N. T. S. N. C. is not ashamed of it. With almost nothing to start with and many difficulties to contend with, it was only by the hardest work of Coach St. Clair and the team that they were able to do anything; and then, tieing Durant and beating Decatur was no small feat. Therefore, this season should be in no way considered a failure, but the Normal should be proud of the reputation she has, as one of the best Junior College teams in the State. - . |fc - t ' jf -J 117 The yucca •• ilr J. W. St. Clair, Football and Basketball The yugca M, fi W k jwl " W Graham Quarlei " Wynne, " an old veteran in Normal athletics, was with the football team again this season, ])laying the same fast and consist- ent game, that is so characteristic of his work. He was switched from his old position at end to that of quarter, and in that capacity showed much skill in generaling the team, as well as in passing the pigskin. Wynne also did some good punting, and many touchdowns were prevented by the use of his toe. Playing a strong offensive and defensive game, he was always on the alert for any fake play that might arise. Acting as captain, he set examples that all could profitably follow. The football squad will miss his leadership in the years to come. Villard Full Back " Reb " was first played on the end, where he showed great ability in breaking up interference and in tackling. Later in the season he was shifted to fullback; at this position he displayed the power of a ram in plunging the line and making long gains off tackle. " Reb " was also good in breaking up passes and running interfer- ence. It was only a few times that an opponent benefited himself by a play in " Reb ' s " territory. Bradley End " Dode " played a few games with last year ' s eleven, but this year he was one of the strongest ends on the team. Although he is a good offensive man, most of " Dode ' s " strength lay in his tackling. He always hit hard and low, and many plays were " nipped in the bud " by this nervy and aggressive youngster. He has several more years at the Normal and all look forward to his becoming one of the Normal ' s best. The yugca • ilr Hughes Guard " Bill " first showed his ability to play football last year liming the class games. This year, by good coaching, he was rounded into one of our best linemen. He possessed all that it takes to make a football player — grit, determination and endurance. The best of them were put to a test when thev matched their strength and kiii with that of " Bill. " Smith, Captain-elect Half Back Smith, better known as Bert, hailed from Leonard High, a football plaver in the beginning. His great speed, combined with his skill, made him our opponents ' most dreaded end ' " circler. " Bert was a good defensive man. but his long suit was taking the pigskin around the end for a substantial gain. He will be back next year to lead the team in their battles on the gridiron and will fill the position of captain to every margin. •i Keahey Half Back " Buck, " one of last year ' s letter men and a good, depend- able backfield man, no matter where used, made himself even more useful this year than last. His coolness and alertness of mind, combined with his genuine football ability, made him a man on whom the team could rely at anv stage of the game. He always rah perfect interference, and his ability to find a hole in the line was responsible for manv gaiii . The team will miss Keahev next vear. The yugca Wilkerson End " Topy ' s " strong point was in getting them before they got started, and he was one of our strongest men when it came to stopping them and breaking up interference. " Topsy " will be back next year to help the team get revenge on some of this year ' s rivals. We all look forward to his standard, for he has the ability, and there is not a yellow streak about him. Guest Tackle " Fatty, " a native of the Normal, made the eleven for his first time, this year. However, he was by no means the weakest man on the team; far from that, for he was a tower of strength in the line, and few plays ever went over him. " Fatty ' s " hobby was to run over them all, big and little alike. He will not be back next year, but our good wishes go with him as he leaves the school which he has so loyally sup- ported. Caskey Guard " Dick " was a man of " stickability " and nerve. He feared nothing, and delighted in breaking through the line at the first second of play and making losses out of the would-be gains. He was a man of endurance and strength, and many an aspiring opponent met his downfall at the hands of " Dick. " The yucca • Stephenson Half Back " Steve " was the man on whom the whole team depended for an occasional ten-yard gain off tackle. His weight, speed and endurance were felt by the opposing ends. He was always big enough to stop short any plunge, run, or pass in his territory. Next year ' s team will miss a good man when " Steve " fails to appear. Moore End " Red " came into the squad late and a new man, but his ability soon won for him a place on the team. He had a cool- ness and confidence in receiving passes, and was responsible for many gains when they were needed. In " Red " next year ' s team will be strengthened at one end. Waide Tackle Waide, our hard working tackle, was a letter man of last year ' s squad, and he by no means lost his hard earned reputation in the few games played this season. From the kick-off. Waide was on the go, and whether his team was losing or winning, he was always fighting with the tenacity of a bulldog. Few line plungers ever ran over this sturdy chap and he often left gaping holes for our backs to charge through. It is hoped by all that when next year ' s squad is mustered on the field Waide will be among those present. The yugca ••• •• Deaton Center " Deacon " was a letter man from last year and an eperienced man in holding the pigskin in a pinch. He never got excited in the least, no matter how critical the situation. He was always where our opponents least expected, with a tackling force that took the best of them off their feet. We look for- ward to his being with the team again next year, filling his old position at center. Pirtle Guard " Pirtle, " a last year ' s class football star, came forward this year and made a good man for the line. Although not playing in every game, Pirtle showed good form and speed during the time he played. He will be with the team next year. Myers Guard " Cock-eye, " a product of Denton and a member of the fast High School team of last year, came to the Normal with a good reputation. He more than fulfilled our expectations and easily lived up to his reputation; in fact he proved to be one of the strongest linemen the Normal possessed. There are few that can out-do him when it comes to opening a hole for the backs to plunge through. The yugca • llrifcr The yugca •• • tHE YUGCA • ii Review of the Season With four letter men from last year ' s squad, the basketball prospects for 1918 were exceedingly bright. And bright the season was, as is shown by the string of victories over some of the strongest teams in the state. The Normal might well be classed as a contender for the State Championship if it were a member of the T. 1. P. A. Not a team in the state won a series from the Normal, and such teams as State University, Baylor, Decatur, and T. C. U. matched their skill with the Normal quintette. The season started with T. C. U. at Fort Worth. The game was won by the T. C. U. bunch by a safe score, but it was hardly a test of the ability of the Normal basketball players, owing to the weather. The wind was high, and many balls which would perhaps have rung true on a calm day missed their mark. But we offer no alibi, as the game was won in a fair way, and was a credit to T. C. U. Our boys returned home beaten in score but not in spirit. After a week of hard practice and hard workouts the team departed for Austin, where they were to meet the Longhorns, one of the strongest teams in the state, and one which has since been named State Champion. The yugca " W w ' W ' The first game went decidedly against us, the score being 52 to 19 in tlie opponents ' favor, but all will remember the great comeback staged by the Normal in the second game of the series. It was sweet revenge against State U., but it was only won through the brilliant playing of each man and the team as a whole. The winning of this one game was a great feat for the Normal. State University herself said it was one of the greatest come- backs ever witnessed on her courts. The winning of this game alone should make all realize that we were among the very best in the state. The final score was 25 to 18. From Austin the team went to Waco, where they matched their skill with that of the Baylor Bears. The game was a fast and rough one from the start to the finish, but the teachers came out victorious by the score of 20 to 19. Here another victory of credit was added to our laurels. Thus one of our road trips ended, and a profitable one it was, our team having subdued the Texas Longhonis and the Baylor Bears while away. Not until near the last of January did the Normal students as a body have a chance to witness our basketball men in action against an opponent. On this day Austin College was easily defeated by the overwhelming score of 33 to 1. Although the playing was marred by a muddy field, it was easy to pick the victors from the very start. The second game with Austin The yugca •• 1 College, while not quite so one-sided, also showed the superiority of the Teachers as basketball players. In both games the Normal quintette proved to be an absolute master of the Austin College boys, and at no time did Austin College threaten to defeat our fast and heady players. The team was backed by a large number of the student body, who demonstrated their appreciation of the team ' s playing by many yells and a snake dance between halves. Two weeks later Coach St. Clair carried his peppy warriors to Decatur, where they were to meet Decatur Baptist College in a two-game series, both games being in one day, one in the afternoon and one at night. It ' s a sad, sad story, but we were beaten and our only excuse is the extraordinary court upon which the games were played. Only a short time elapsed before we evened our debt with Decatur, beating them two games in succession on the home grounds. The first was one of the prettiest exhibitions of basketball ever seen on the local court and ended with the Normal on the slightly bigger end of a 17 to 16 score. The fans were in doubt as to the outcome until the final whistle proclaimed the Teachers victorious. The second game was somewhat of a middle type but still was worth going miles to see. The home club outplayed and out- winded the opponents and made off with an easy victory, the score being 32 to 16. Then came the grand finale, the game in which we were to even up The yucca " w " M " W w matters with T. C. U., and this we justly did. The Christians came over confident of victory, having several new men who had been released from the service and also having won several games from such teams as Rice by large scores. But from the time the first whistle blew, they were doomed to disappointment. The Normal boys ran rough-shod all over the field and played rings around their opponents. The above nmst not leave the impression that it was an easy victory for the Teachers. But our boys had the Christian aggregation outclassed in all the finer points of the game and so when the game ended the Normal was the proud possessor of the big end of a 23 to 16 score. This brought the season to a close and a more fitting climax could not be wished for. Out of the 11 games played, 7 were won and 4 lost. Not a team in the state can boast that they beat the Normal, as honors were divided or won in every series in which the Normal participated. 33ilKtTg, 12a The yugca •• 1 ' The Basketball Squad To whom this section is dedicated. 16V The yugca wW f WfT Graham, Captain Forward Wynne has long been a star on Normal Basketball teams. This year, playing his last season with the school, he has upheld his reputation for cool and consistent work. Displaying none of the flashiness and brilliancy of form common to some, he was always on hand to help when one of the boys needed assistance. Though he was kept out of several games by sickness, he was ready to help scalp some of our ancient rivals. As long as basketball history exists at N. T. S. N. C, so long will Wynne ' s hard, clean playing be remembered, and when the first degree students depart to return no more, then will the Normal have lost one of her cleanest, steadiest athletes and a man whose sportsmanship and loyalty is second to none. Meador Center The recent season was " Spider ' s " third with the Green and White, and it is our boast that no team in Texas had a center who was his equal. Full of fight from the word go, he was " in there " till the whistle ended the hostilities. Pitted against some of the heaviest and most experienced players in the state, never did he fail to give his school the best he had. Playing either an offensive or defensive game as the occasion demanded, he was literally a demon in action. No matter how strong the opponents, " Spider " never lost his pep, and adverse circumstances onlv made him battle the harder — a clean, hard player, and a willing worker. It is our hope that next November will find him displaying for the Normal the ability which has made him famous in Texas basketball. 4 L The yugga • ilr Redman Forward " Rip " is another first year man. Without exaggeration, we may sav that he shows a natural ability for the game and a form of playing which is extraordinary. He was sent into one of the most gruelling contests of the season to prove his worth and he stood the test like a veteran. Although he is rather light, he is very fast and has wonderful accuracy in shooting goals. His coolness and teamwork were powerful factors in making him a man in whom Coach St. Clair could place the highest confidence, end one whom he knew would give his school the best he had. Douglas Guard This was Douglas ' first year on the learn, but he has been a class star for several seasons. His position is ; ' ,t guard, but it was noticed that his op- ponent was trying to guard him most of the time. Since he is naturally a good basketball player, the fact that he is left-handed has misled many an opponent. He was at his best when we beat the haughty Texas U. quintette 25 to 18, and it was his long field goal at Baylor that brought sorrow to the gold and green. Of medium height and weight and fast as a streak, the Normal boasts of few better men than Douglas. Deaton Forwartl Grady is a man who would have been a credit to any team in the state. Any position on the team suited him, and to him, the bigger the opponents, the harder they fell. He was perhaps the hardest man on the team to guard, owing to his numerous elbows and his peculiar habit of kicking a person on the shins. He is very fittingly called the " Deacon, " and is noted for his bashfulness among the fair sex. He is a hard worker and never knows how to give up. He has been known, when too far away to guard his man. to actually talk him out of a goal. Grady will wear the Green and Wiite next year, and, as in the past, will do his share — and more — to persuade victory to roost on our goal. The yugca iir ' w ' W W tC " " 13 Smith Forward " Bert, " a football star, proved equally as good a man in haskethall as in football. His speed was very effective, as few guards could keep up with him. He showed his greatest value in the Austin College games, but throughout the season Bert played a fast and steady game. He was nearly always open and could be depended on to ring one when the opportunity arose. He played a strong defensive game and did not fear meeting the biggest of them in a head-on collision, and you could rest assured that Bert, when in a scuffle, would come out on top. This is Bert ' s first year in college basketball, but he is expected back here next year to assist in downing some of our ancient football and basketball foes. Andrews Guard This was " Speck ' s " first year of col- lege basketball, and from all appear- ances he is a future star. Big and fa. ' t, he had no difficulty in holding any for- ward whom it was his duty to guard. Wliile he did not participate in all the games this year, he seems to have all the requisites of a good, steady athlete. His willingness to work, combined with his loyalty to the team, has caused him to be regarded as a very likely candidate for our next year ' s team. McCrackeii Guard Glen is also one of our veteran players, having been a member of the fast team of 1918. His position is at guard, and never did he meet an opponent that could out-do him. In addition to his ability to hold an opponent to a few scores, he was sure to toss a few long goals himself. His accuracy was wonderful, and when his opponents were least expecting it, he was liable to ring one from the center of the court. His strength was a valuable asset, as not even our heaviest rivals could overcome him. " Crackey " always had the pep and was foremost in the encouragement of his teammates. He was always the right man in the right place, and, as he is expected to be back next year, we feel that there are some forwards that will be disappointed if they expect to pile up a large score on the Normal. The yugca •• ilr The yugca ir ilr 135 The yugca •• 1 J. 10 The yugca ' A ' WlPT The Season of 1918-1919 The basketball season of 1918-19 was a very successful one, the only drawback being the short schedule played. Our ancient enemy, Decatur, was very thoroughly beaten, and from S. M. U., the so-called State Champions, we took revenge for the drubbings they gave us last year. No more games were played. Games were scheduled with T. W. C. at Fort Worth, but were cancelled. Burleson College and Wesley College also called off games with us, as did Kidd-Key at Sherman. Our efficient coach. Miss Harriss, was fortunate in having a team of veterans answer the call for practice. Among those were Cecil Owens, a star at center for two years; Edna Naylor, a dependable guard from last year ' s team, and Ray Williams and Nannie Roberts, whose work at the forward end of the court was a feature of the 1918 team. New players who showed up well were Johnny and Margery Thorne, twin forwards; Vera and Mattie Reeves, guard and side center, respectively; Gertrude The yugca •• Owens and Ouida Brown, side centers, and Kate Owens, a guard. There was keen competition for all the positions. Our first game was at home with S. M. IL Though they had a good team, they were no match lor our guards, and the outcome was never doubtful. The final score was 17 to 4, with the Normal roosting on the heavy end. Decatur was the next victim. The Thome twins played the last half of the game, and completely demoralized Decatur with their teamwork. Normal won, 41 to 7. Decatur then came over here to try their luck. They did not have a chance with the Normal girls playing on their own court. Normal won, .33 to 1. The game at Dallas with S. M. U. closed the season. The Methodists had the advantage of playing on an indoor court, but were just too light to cope with Normal teamwork and accuracy in shooting goals. S. M. U. was defeated, 1.5 to 8. After this game the team was disbanded. Six players were presented with letters, four of them for the second time. This closed one of the foremost successful seasons in the history of the Normal College. The yugca =!••• •■ CECIL OWENS Captain 1918-19 — For three years " Shanks " has never per- mitted any opponent to tip her ball; this, together with her cheerfulness, has won for her a place in the hearts of all the students. Her excellent basketball career began here in 1916-17. In that year she was an " All-State Star. " Having displayed such excellent team work and unusual ability as a player in the air, she was dubbed " Moon Fixer " in 1917-18. Her position as Cap- tain and Center, with her humor and true sportsmanship, account for her title as the " Back Bone " of the team of 1918-19. The N. T. S. N. C. shall miss her next year, but her record and pleasant memories of her shall linger with us Ion " after she shall have made her departure. EDNA NAYLOR GuARD " The Jumping Guard. " Edna guards with the tenacity of a bull dog. She is short, but her jumping ability enables her to rescue the bail from " sky-scraper " oppo- nents. She was always where she was needeil most. Her aggressiveness in securing the ball, and her accurate passes were responsible lor many of the points scored by other mem- bers of the team. She shall demonstrate her skillful teamwork for us another year. RAY WILLIAMS Forward — For two years Ray has made her opponents stag- ger backward, as the " impossible ball, " so termed by them, easily glided through the goal, and piled up scores for us. Her long field throws and accurate jjassing have won the applause of the entire College. She is a " Star " player, and is, in reality, a fair representative of all activities of the College. Ray ' s wit, beauty, humor and dignity form one of the most lovable characters rep- resented on the basketball court, and every member of the squad knows her to be a true " sport. " We regret to lose her for another year. The yugca 1fr MAITIE REEVES Side Center — Mattie was an ordained side center but when it was necessary, she could fill the guard position also. She was always at the right place at the right time and did unusually good team work in whatever place she was playing. She plays a clean, open, defensive game. The quickness with which she got rid of the ball, and her keen interpretation of her center ' s movements have helped to win the game with a safe margin. She has only been with us this year, and is leaving an athletic record we are proud of. VERA REEVES GUAKD — A big man and hard to handle. She always played a hard, cool headed game. and was a tenacious guarder of her niL-.n. Her height, added to her swiftness and first- rate passing, enabled her to play with her guard at all times. She proved loo fast for her opponents. When the roll is called for basketball practice next year. Vera is a star that will answer " Present. " NANNIE ROBERTS Forward — " Shrimp ' s " peculiar little cry, " E-e-e, " plus an enlargement of her big gray eyes, plus her sacrificing play, equals many scores for the College and hard work for the opponent. She displayed wonderful skill at working signals, and was a player on whom we all depended. She is small, but her opponents realized her ability to deliver the goods. For two years she has been with us, and we shall miss her characteristic " E-e-e " next year. The yugca • iAr ELECTION OF THE 191819 YUCCA STAFF The afternoon of April 16, 1918, was the time set for the second spring election of the Yucca staff for the following year. Conditions surrounding the election were hy no means favorable. The general war influences, the reduction in the number of boys in school, and the disturbed condition of the minds of all had almost completely destroyed the boys ' societies, the two organizations which usually present the only tickets for the Yucca election. Moreover, little interest was taken in such contests so insignificant when compared with the great world conflict. Therefore things were decidedly dull, and students of past years would certainly not have recognized the " greatest day of the year, " as it was once known. However, as the time drew near, a few live students in each of the boys ' societies took things in hand, and determined to make the election a real success. As a result, two of the strongest tickets that have ever been presented to the Normal students were announced. They were as follows: LEE RE. GAN Editor-in-Chief Sam B. McAlister Eula Pickard Associate Editor Kathbyn Hancock — Wynne B. Graham Art Editor Ina Bess Harvey Nannie Mae Peters Class Editor Mary Tanner Bill Hughes Organizations Editor IvA Mae Stallcup Florence Mackin College Life Editor Mary Epps McClaren-Mary Stout Athletic Editor H. R. Andrews Alfred Stockard Facts and Follies Editor Sue McLennan Lillian Carlton A half-holiday was given for the holding of the election. Soon after noon the students assembled in the Auditorium, and formal announcement of the candidates of each side was made. There were also some demonstrations of the old time society pep. Then the audience was dismissed, and the casting of ballots was begun. The The yugca ••• •• The yugga •• •• Freshmen voted in the Main Bu.lcling. the Sophomores in the Science Hall, the Juniors and Seniors in the Manual Arts Building. Late in the afternoon the election of the following candidates was announced: Sam B. McAlister, Wynne B. Graham, Nannie Mae Peters, Mary Tanner, Iva Mae Stallcup, Mary Stout, H. R. Andrews, and Sue McLennan. According to a request by Dr. Bruce, no celebration was held, but the rules were off for the night, and each candidate end voter enjoyed the victory or consoled himself for his defeat in his own way. All staff members, save H. R. Andrews, returned this year to fill their places. Mr. J. A. Wilkerson was chosen by the Council to fill Mr. Andrews ' piece. — 1 - — Second Annual Banquet of Press Qub On the evening of May 21, 1918, the second annual banquet of the Press Club was given in the large dining room of the Manual Arts Building. The room was made unusually attractive by the use of a profusion of lark-spur and ferns on the well appointed tables. The delicious menu of four courses, which was prepared and served by members of the Home Economics classes, was enjoyed by all. Covers were laid for fifty, including, besides the Press Club members and the Faculty Committee on Publications, Dr. and Mrs. W. H. Bruce, Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Tanner, and Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Miller. It is a significant fact that Messrs. Tanner and Miller were nominees for Editor-in-Chief of the first year-book published by the College. Mr. Albert Allen was toastmaster for the evening, during which time various aspects of " The Great War " were, in connection with our own publications, cleverly discussed as follows: The Call to Arms C. H. Thurman Organization of Army Paul Taylor Building of Fortifications Alfrkr Stockard Our Eiiuipment Hilda Hucon Reconnoitering Myrtle Lindsey The Great Drive Lavinia Gillespie Official Bulletins W.

I. A. Faculty Entertains the Normal Faculty On Wednesday evening, March 27, the faculty of the College of Industrial Arts was host to the faculty of the North Texas State Normal College. The reception, which began at 6:30, was held in the spacious parlors of Brackenridge Hall. Music was furnished throughout the evening by the school orchestra. After an hour of enjoyable introductions and renewals of acquaintances, all marched by couples to the large dining room, where a most delightful four- course dinner was served. The room was very beautifully decorated. Dainty hand painted baskets containing salted nuts were the favors. Between courses patriotic readings and special musical numbers were given. President Bralley very cordially welcomed the Normal College faculty and expressed the hope that in the near future it might be made possible for the two schools to enjoy each other ' s company more frequently. Mr. Borden, representing Dr. Bruce, replied to the speech of welcome and assured the company that the Normal College shared President Bralley ' s hope. E ach guest was enthusiastic in his appreciation and praise of the C. I. A. hospitality, and expressed his regret that these thoroughly enjoyable " get-togethers " of the two faculties did not come oftener than once a year. Current Literature Club Play The Current Literature Club presented a patriotic pageant in the College Auditorium. The play was very interesting and made a fitting close for the day set apart as Liberty Loan Day. The opening scene was on a Southern plantation. The characters. Pocahontas and John Smith, were presented, followed by Priscilla and John Alden, Betty Ross and a Colonial gallant, present day citizens, and the club women. Next came the Allies. Each girl, dressed in her native costume, spoke in behalf of the country she represented. These were followed by a group of Red Cross nurses. Next the West Side school children gave a military drill which was very attractive. As m The yucca • 1 " Good-by Broadway, Hello France " was sung, the Spirit of Democracy and Patriotism entered followed by the Spirit of Peace, with many little attendants. Then came the terrible Spirit of War, held fast by children who represented the Allies. This was indeed an impressive scene, as the " Battle Hymn of the Republic " was sung, and War, bound hard and fast, writhed in his chains. As an appropriate close, Dr. Bruce made an interesting address, " A Tribute to the Boys in Khaki. " This impressive talk was followed by the singing of the " Star Spangled Banner. " : : Senior Class Play The annual Senior class play, under the title of " Rosemary, " was given as one of the closing numbers of the commencement program on Monday evening. May 27, 1918, in the College Auditorium. The play scored an unusual hit with the audience, which was due to Miss Sigworth ' s instruction of those students who were best fitted for the different characters of the play. " Rosemary " as depicted by the actors was a comic drama of the Victorian Age. It represented the English life of that period in a manner both entertaining and instructive. The cue of the old seadog. Captain Crinckshank, was acted very capably by Mr. Lee Preston. He was assisted both in the act and in the art of " speechifying " by his garrulous wife, Mrs. Crinckshank, Miss Pauline Anderson. The heaviest, as well as the most difficult and best acted part of the play, was taken by Mr. Shirley Hodges, as Sir Jasper Thorndike. The comic element of the production was well furnished by Mr. Karl Horton, the heavy comedian, as Prof. Jogram. In regard to the lovers, the hero and heroine of the play, much can be written. Miss Jessie Story, as Dorothy Crinckshank, was a charming innocent maid of sixteen years. This character as interpreted by Miss Story was a delight to the spectators from the time she made her appearance as the principal participant in a runaway match until she was led away as a happy bride. She was attended by her lover, William Westwood, played by Mr. Albert Allen. The conceited English bigot could not have been better interpreted than by Mr. Allen. Before the play was ended, William received a life lesson from the events of the story which no doubt served him well, for he is now a real married man. 146 The yucca --• ilr ' •- , - ' : -»,. .. tJ " i( ■i " The yugca ••• • • ? Commencenient Program Closed Tuesday, May 28, 1918, With Awarding of Diplomas The Commencement program was brought to a successful close on Tuesday morning, May 2o, when diplomas and certificates were awarded to those students who had creditably finished the work of the year. Superintendent Chas. S. Meek of San Antonio, the speaker of the occasion, delivered a very interesting address in which he proved that the schools of America are superior to those of Germany because they are for the good of the American people while those of Germany are wholly for the good of the state. He also emphasized the necessity of teaching to school children patriotism and loyalty for the American flag. The music for the program was furnished by Miss Margery Ballard, who sang a solo, and by Misses Parrill and Ballard, Mesdames Martin and Harris, and Messrs. Vitz, Legett, McKav and Ferguson, who sang " Hark, Hark, the Lark. " A short address was then given by Senator George M. Hopkins. At the close of this talk the diplomas and certificates were awarded. Those students receiving second and first grade certificates were not introduced to the audience, but marched across the stage in regular order. Each Senior, however, was first given an introduction and then awarded the diploma. The yugca •♦ W ' Conimenoeirient Exercises North Texas State Normal College 1918 Wednesday, May 22 8:30 p. ni.

The yugca •• 1fc The yugca •• ifc ' Opening Days for 1918-19 On Tuesday, September 23, 1918, the session of the North Texas State Normal College for 1918-19 was formally opened. The days were hot, but enthusiasm ran high. Everyone was guessing wildly — in every sense of. the word — as to what the enrollment would be, since the war was at its height and since there was to be a baby army in the very midst of us. In four or five days, however, the confusion which had arisen from the entire readjustment of the schedules to meet the needs of the S. A. T. C. boys, the French students, and the other irregularities, had been settled; and the students, in numbers which no one had dared to predict, began in earnest the work of the year in which the most radical changes in the history of the school were to take place. For the first week or two of school there was great doubt as to whether the S. A. T. C. was a part of the school, or the school a part of the S. A. T. C, as the office of the commandant was established in the president ' s office. After the completion of the barracks school work and military training were successfully harmonized to get the best results in each. C st»- " Y. W. C. A. Welcomes All the Students " Saturday evening, September 28, 1918, the Y. W. C. A. entertained all the students and faculty with a party of welcome, in order to offer an opportunity for all members of the College to become acquainted. Games were played and many patriotic songs were sung. Punch was served throughout the evening. Everyone had a most enjoyable time. -«4E ; Japanese Dramatic Club Party On a Saturday night in October, the Lillie Bruce Dramatic Club was entertained by Miss Alice Sigworth at her home on West Hickory Street. Everyone was dressed in some kind of Japanese costume. The evening ' s entertainment consisted of a progressive march and several contests. After the contests, refreshments were served and marshmallows were toasted. The yugca Senior and S. A. T. C. Minstrel Show . For several years, the Senior Class lias given annually a great circus, the proceeds from which were added to the Students ' Loan Fund, which has for its purpose the aiding of worthy students ; j l who would otherwise be unable to attend the Normal. This year, on account of conditions arising from the war situation and the military training, the annual circus was abandoned, and the Grand Minstrel Show given in the Auditorium at eight o ' clock on the evening of Mon- day, November 17, was substituted for it. In order to make the minstrel as great a success as possible the talent of j m fhe S. A. T. C. was joined with that of n. Hl H the Senior Class. The first interest in the great event was shown in chapel one morning, when the candidates for the Queen of the Minstrel were nominated. Each class had met and selected its candidate, as well as its most eloquent speaker, who was to present this candidate to the students. And each class had been unusually successful in finding within it a very beautiful young lady to represent it on the night of the minstrel and to be a worthy contestant for that highest honor, the queen-ship. The following were the candidates: For the Freshmen, Miss Hazel Wilson; for the Sophomores, Miss Frances Haddock; for the Juniors, Miss Helen Millar; for the Seniors, Miss Jolly Blanche Pitts, and for the College students. Miss Kathryn Hancock. After a long and interesting contest. Miss Hazel Wilson was chosen Queen. Then, of course, when the following program appeared in the dial on the Friday before the time set for the minstrel, everyone wanted to go. Program 1. Overture — " Are You From Dixie?

The guests were met in the reception room and then escorted to the dining room, which was decorated with yellow and brown chrysanthemums. Victrola music was played during the entire dinner. The menu was: Fruit Cocktail Turkey Dressing, Gravy Stuffed Potatoes Boiled Tomatoes on Toast Cranberry Jelly Parker House Rolls Olives Celery Salted Nuts Perfection Salad Date Pudding, Whipped Cream !i " : Normal in the Peace Celebration On Monday morning, November 11, at 2:50 o ' clock, word was received that the armistice between Germany and the Allies had been signed, but the news was held from the people of Denton until 3:30. At that hour the whistles began to blow. Everyone guessed the purpose of the noise, and soon people were gathering on the square. In spite of the time, the Normal was well represented in the crowd, which had assembled by 5:00 a. m. A parade was formed at 2:00 o ' clock in the afternoon. Long lines of gaily decorated automobiles drove over the city and around the square. The S. A. T. C. and the Cadet Corps of the Normal, followed by C. I. A., marched in the parade. Floats depicting the Allies and various celebrities were in evidence. One float bore a coffin with the sign " Kaiserism is dead. " There was no cessation of the celebration until a late hour Monday night, but all of the people were too happy to become fatigued. Everybody feels that Monday, November 11, 1918, was the greatest day in his life. - l Housewarniing Tea The Y. W. C. A. gave an afternoon tea to all the girls of the school in the Y. W. C. A. Rest Room. The room was prettily decorited with autumn leaves and ferns. The guests were entertained by Victrola music. Tea and cakes were served to the many girls who called during the afternoon.

The first number on the program was a trombone selection by Edwin Bell. The Boys ' Quartet, composed of Messrs. Simmons, Moore, Cook, and Griddle, sang " A Wise Old Owl Sat in a Tree. " Tableaus accom- panied by songs were presented. Miss Jolly Blanche Pitts played the role of ' " Juanita, " while Miss Katherine Floyd and Lillian Carleton sang. Ernest Griddle sang " Mother Machree, " while Miss Trula Mae Tippit represented " Mother Machree. " Miss Mary Epps McClaren was the mother in " Sweet and Low, " which Glifton Simmons sang. " America " was represented by Miss Wilson, while the audience, directed by Miss Parrill, sang the song. ■ 4E sfc - Lillie Bruce Dramatic Qub Party On Saturday night, December 14, the Lillie Bruce Dramatic Art Club was at home to its members at the residence of Mrs. Stout on West Hickory Street. A peanut contest was engaged in, Mr. Joe T. Allen receiving the boys ' prize, a " beautiful " blue comb, and Miss Alice Sigworth the girls ' , a blue " set-ring. " A progressive Grand March was also a feature of the evening ' s pleasure. Victrola music was enjoyed, but not more so than the piano selections of some of the guests and the songs of the S. A. T. G. boys. Daintv refreshments were served. : 2t - Mobilization of the Apple Corps One night in the middle of November the Y. W. G. A. entertained the girls of the Gollege with a military party. The guests were greeted as they arrived by sentinels and guards, who demanded the password, " apple. " Moreover, the physical examination by Red Gross nurses and army doctors, the flags, the soldiers, the airship, and the formations and marches gave everything a truly military air. Then came the parade around the campus, while patriotic songs were sung and the refreshments, consisting of popcorn and apples, were eaten. When the taps of the bugle sounded, each one realized that it was time lo go home. teE YUCCA • iAr The yucca •• 1 Miss Emma Mitchell Honored With Musical On Saturday evening, December 7, at the Music Hall, the members of the faculty circle were the guests of Misses Hillyar and Parrill, at a musical honoring Miss Emma Mitchell, who left the Normal College after the holidays to enter the State Department of Education. The attractive rooms of the newly opened hall were artistically decorated with ferns and winter berries, and the pleasing effect of the scene was enhanced by the presence of a bevy of pretty girls in dainty costumes, who assisted the hostesses in entertaining the guests. The program of the evening was altogether delightful. After refreshments, the company joined in conununitv singing for the remainder of the evening, departing as reluctantly as people always do after an evening of thorough enjoyment. - S " . 5 The Mary Ardeii Party On the evening of January 2, 1919, there was gathered in the girls ' gymnasium a notable throng, representing many pages of dramatic romance. Fairies and fools played happily together, heedless of interferring Puck. Rosalind chatted with a group of shepherdesses with no thought of a cruel uncle. Patrichio and Katherine laid aside their martial habits and were quite peaceable. The Drunken Porter was enthralled with Lady Macbeth, who, by the use of a marvelous powder, had washed off the " damned spot. " Romeo and Juliet would have been quite happy had Othello not insisted on retailing faculty gossip to them, and among these characters moved Mary Arden and William himself. The ladies of the faculty were the guests of the evening and an interesting program was presented before them. After the program delicious punch was served and exactly at ten-thirty all departed. - G 158 The yugca •• 1 Annual Art Exhibit The annual exhibit of the Elson Pictures was given in the Boys ' Reading Room, from January fifteenth to eighteenth. The Spanish Classes of the College were in charge of the pictures. Miss Hillyar delivered several interesting lectures, particularly on Spanish Art. With the proceeds of the sale, the pictures which now hang on the walls of the Spanish room were purchased. They are largely types of Spanish Art. Faculty Recital On Monday night, January 27, three members of the Fine Arts Department gave a delightful program. Misses Anderson and Parrill each gave several beautiful musical numbers. Miss Sigworth read an arrangement of the popular play " Peg o ' My Heart. " The program was most interesting: Sonata Dussek Miss Anderson Chanson d " Antomne Gabriele Sibella Two Eighteenth Century Songs — (a) Chantons Les Amours de Jean (b) Jeunes Fillettes Miss Parrill Peg o ' My Heart .

The play was produced under the personal direction of Miss Sigworth. and represented College talent exclusively. The great success of the performance was due to the unusual ability and the faithful practice of those in the case as well as to the careful supervision and training by Miss Sigworth. Music was furnished by the College Band under the direction of Mr. Pender.

Marcosson One of the most interesting and entertaining talks made during the year before students, faculty and townspeople was that by Mr. Marcosson on the e vening of March 3. As an author, traveler, and journalist, and special war correspondent for the Saturday Evening Post, Marcosson has made a wide reputation. Nor is he a novice on the lecture platform; his talks are full of brilliant personal anecdote and experience. The same power of description so forceful in his articles enables him to build up picture after picture of scenes and persons that glow with life. His theme, " The War and After, " was comprehensive enough to include the vivid storv of events in Europe, and wonderful word pictures of the " Great Leaders, " as well as a forecast of some of the world problems that must be faced within the next two years. Out of his experiences he brought a message of intense interest and broad appeal. 161 The yucca •• ii Memorial Services for Miss Attwell At the chapel period Saturday, February 7. a memorial service in memory of Miss Burtie J. Attwell was held by the faculty and the student body. The decorations, reading, songs and addresses were all in harmony with Miss Attwell ' s beautiful nature. Miss Edith Lanier Clark, in a most sympathetic way, spoke of her high ideals, her unselfishness, and her constant consideration for others. Dr. Bruce gave a brief history of Miss Attwell ' s career as a teacher from the time he met her in the Fort Worth High School through the four years of her work in the English department of the North Texas State Normal College. He emphasized not only her scholarship but especially her cheerfulness and human sympathy. Every one present felt deeply the loss of an excellent teacher and a faithful friend. The program was as follows: Cast Thy Burden Upon the Lord, " Elijah " No. 106 Faculty Prayer Mr. Butler My Fa ith Looks up to Thee, No. 63 Student Body Extracts fmni " Snowbound " Eula Pickard Lead Kindly Light, No. 5 i Faculty Address Miss Edith Clark Address Dr. Bruce We Feel Thy Calm at Evening ' s Hour " Creation " No. 104-_.

His numbers were well selected, and of the type of songs the audience all understood. Being Irish himself, Mr. Reilly sang especially well in a group of Irish songs and ballads. He also sang " Mother Machree, " and a number of other songs not on the program as given below: 1. Prologue ( Pagliacci I Leoncavallo 2.

Accompanist : Current Literature Club Pageant The Current Literature Club presented a pageant on Friday night, February 14. There were three scenes, in which were presented, respectively. Women War Workers, a French Hostess House, and the Peace Conference. Another feature of the evening was a concert by Mr. Henri La Bonte, a well known tenor of Dallas. Some of the songs most enjoyed were: " I Hear You Calling Me, " " Marseillaise. " ' and " The Battle Hymn of the Republic. " The yugca • 1 iCl The yucca •• Coniiminity Concert In view of the fact that community singing is now being encouraged throughout the United States, an organization was established in the Normal College for the promotion of this kind of entertainment. As a result, quite an interesting program was given in the Auditorium on the night of the 16th of February. Miss Ballard was the director and Miss Anderson the accompanist. It consisted of the following popular songs: 1. (a) America, the Beautiful (b) The Marseillaise 2. His Buttons Are Marked U. S. on . . Richard Christal 3. yuartet MtissRs.

January 21, when nearly all the students participated in a grand paratle. The occasion of this sudden outburst of pep and college patriotism was the victory won over State University and Baylor in the basketball games played in Austin and Waco. The order of procedure of the parade was around tlie campus, down Hickory Street to the square, through the picture shows, around the square, back to the Normal by way of Miss Moores. and finally to Dr. Bruce ' s. The number and the volume of the yells showed the interest of all in the basketball team and its work. Hum YUGCA •• The yugca • ilr The Chase Was it exciting? Well, I guess! One Friday afternoon, tlie members of the Press Club went on a " Hare and Hound Chase. " Speaking of fun — ! Well, Miss Delia Marie Clark, with a crowd of others following, left the Campus about 4 o ' clock. Along the way they dropped scraps of paper, marked posts and walks with chalk, and intimated, by other means, their path. A winding path it was, as the Chasers who followed at 4:30, found. Plowed fields wherein one could easily bog, served a slight example of the hardships which the four-thirty crowd endured. Before the " chased " were at last discovered, the " chasers " were wishing that Miss Clark had been with them. But, oh! What an odor met the late arrivals! Was it Hamburgers? It was! And goodness, there were onions and all other accessories in the form of flavorings to go with them; for who would want Hamburgers without such? There was coffee, too, with cream and sugar. After " eats, " all kinds of exciting games were played. " Camp " soon " broke up " and with songs and yells the participants sought their respective homes, hoping that another frolic of the same nature would soon come to them. -«tE : French Oub Carnival Satu rday night, March 1, the Grand Carnival of the French Club was held in the old S. A. T. C. barracks, which were one blaze of varicolored lights. The Japanese lanterns swinging from their strings gave the festival the atmosphere of the genuine Mardi Gras. Nearly everyone present came in some costume suitable for the occasion. There were representatives from the wild and wooly west and from the French society set. There were munition girls and sailors, workmen and devils, and many other interesting personages who helped to make the Carnival a huge succss. The program of the evening included the crowning of the Queen of the Mardi Gras, Ray Williams. The key to Revelry was presented to the King, Simeon Castleberry, by Wilton Cook, master of ceremonies. After the program, the booths were rushed to please the wants of the revelers. Everything was sold from chewing gum to a shot at the negro babies. There was a large supply of home-made candies, sandwiches, ice cream cones, soda pop, chewing gum, pop corn, and other articles usually found at a carnival. The boys ' string quartet played selections for the audience and were happily received into the midst of the festival. In fact, the carnival was a riot of fun from start to finish. The yugca •• •• 168 teE YUCCA Concert by the Training School The concert given by the First, Second and Third Grades of the Training School in chapel, Saturday, March 7, was thoroughly enjoyed by all. All the choruses were good, and Miss Parrill is to be commended for her splendid success as a musical director. The solos by Mary Elizabeth Burgoon and Elsie Vitz were exceptionally attractive.

This was a joint concert of the Choral Club and the Glee Club, given under the able direction of Miss Parrill. The heavy applause and the general enthusiasm over each number gave evidence that the audience was delightfully entertained throughout the entire program. Certainly, Miss Parrill and the two clubs are to be congratulated on their happy selections and their sympathetic interpretations. Quite in keeping with the season, The yucca •• 1 £■ e The yugca •• •• the songs were bouyant and sparkling with joy. " The Anvil Chorus, " sung by the Glee Club, and the " Butterfly Boat, " by the Choral Club, were exceptionally good. Miss Lillian Carleton proved herself a charming artist in " The Lass With the Delicate Air " and " O Charlie Is My Darlin ' . " Miss Carleton has a beautiful lyric soprano voice, and she sang very sweetly in those two numbers. Miss Margery Ballard sang several songs which were especially suited to her rich contralto voice. Miss Mary Anderson was the accompanist, and much of the pleasure of the program was due to her ability as a pianist. The following is the program: When the Foeman Bares His Steel, From " Pirates of Penzance " Chorus Fairy Waltz, From " Beggar Student " Choral Club Morning ) Noon Montague Ring Night ) Miss Ballard Welcome Sweet Spring Rubenstein Choral Club Anvil Chorus, from " II Trovatore " Glee Club The Lass With the Delicate Air Old English Charlie Is My Darlin " Old Scotch Lillian Carleton and Chorus The Navy, From " Boccaccio " Chorus 1 Doubt It Hosmer Why ells Three for Jack Squire The Little Irish Girl Miss Ballard Butterfl y Boat, From " Beggar Student " Choral Club Hiring Fair, From " Chimes of Normandy " Chorus Pilot Lan ' de Boat, Negro Camp Meeting Melody Glee Club Minuet Mozart Comin ' Thro the Rye Old Scotch Choral Club The yugca • iAr [dpd-n«5fi f d Tv; y C»-rT.«7 172 iliZ YUGCA • French Club Picnic At its regular social meeting for the month, the French Club, on the 1st of April, went to Highland Park for an afternoon picnic. At 4:30 the members began to gather in front of the Library, and before many minutes a jolly crowd was on its way to the park, each person carrying his box of lunch. When the end of the journey was reached all boxes were safely stored away to await the arousing of appetites suitable for such occasions. Then, for a short while puzzles became the order of the day. But soon such quiet occupations were put aside, and relay races and " Stealing Sticks " were enjoyed as thoroughly as when all were children. Neither the scarcity of boys nor the style of long, narrow skirts prevented many hard races for sticks or men, until all were tired out and felt quite fully prepared to enjoy the contents of the many lunch boxes. S 5S«- The Inter-Society Debate For several weeks there had been, among students interested in public speaking, much discussion of a contest which was to take place between the Lees and the Reagans. Each society had had a special " try-out " among its own members and had selected the two boys, who, it was thought, could best and most successfully represent the society. Fine Bedford and H. M. Adkins had been chosen by the Reagans and Beason Hester and J. H. Houser by the Lees. And each of the four had worked hard to gather material and prepare for an unanswerable argument for his side of the question. However, Fate, in the form of mumps, interferred and removed Mr. Houser and Mr. Adkins from the struggle. Then N. M. Wilson and L. L. Fritz, respectively, the alternates, took the places of the unfortunates. Thus when the time for the debate arrived the Lees were represented by Hester and Wilson and the Reagans by Bedford and Fritz. Much interest was shown by both societies and each was equally confident of success. Mr. L. L. Miller presided at the meeting where the question for discussion was " Resolved, That the United States Government should own and operate the railroads. " Oratorical ability and good team work was shown by all the debaters, but the judges ' decision gave the victory to the Lees. The yugca • 1 Dramatic Qub to Fort Worth At 4:00 o ' clock on Wednesday afternoon, April 8, the Dramatic Club and chaperones left Denton for Fort Worth, the mode of transportation being cars. A few miles from Denton the sky suddenly opened and poured forth its ' " juice. " Nevertheless, the rain had nothing to do with the enjoyment of the play, " Friendly Enemies. " After the play was over and everyone had refreshed himself by eating a lunch at the hour of midnight, all started for home, but got no further than a small town half way. After waiting here from 3:30 until 8:00 the club came the remainder of the way on the train. l ' 0 l Faculty Reception One of the most enjoyable occasions of the year was an informal reception given to the faculty on Tuesday evening, April 8, at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Bruce. The date for the entertainment was fixed by Mrs. Bruce to fall upon Dr. Bruce ' s birthday, and the members of the faculty who were in the secret joined in a conspiracy to avoid giving him any reminder of the significance of the date. So it was a genuine surprise to Dr. Bruce, when after the guests had assembled, Mr. Pender, in behalf of the faculty, presented him with a beautiful traveling bag. A delightful program followed, beginning with a clever and interesting reminiscence of pioneer days by Mr. Borden, and concluding with a lively election of the handsomest man in the faculty, that his picture might be placed in the Yucca. Messrs. Butler, Swenson, Downer, Blackburn and Griddle were candidates. Mr. Butler was chosen. The guests then gathered in the dining room, where a large birthday cake with the symbolic decoration of candles adorned the beautifully appointed table. Delicious refreshments were served, consisting of various kinds of sandwiches, macaroons and hot chocolate. A number of girls of the Home Economics Department assisted the hostess in serving. Upon departing, many of the guests were heard to remark that they wished our President might, though remaining " perennially young, " have several birthdays a year. The yugca •• 1 The yugca • 1 Mary Arden Play On the evening of April 14 the members of the Mary Arden Club presented five scenes from Shakespeare ' s well known comedy, " The Winter ' s Tale, " as their annual club play. The lady members of the faculty and Dr. Bruce were presented with complimentary tickets, and at 8:30 marched in and occupied reserved seats. A special feature of the evening ' s program was a number of Elizabethan songs and folk dances given by girls of the club who were dressed in very appropriate costumes. The play was presented under the personal direction of Miss Edith Lanier Clark, leader of the club.

After the guests, including a number of the faculty, arrived, there followed a most interesting program. Those who contributed were Misses Parrill, Parker, Garrison, Ballard, Sigworth and Anderson and Mr. McConnell. Then Miss Moore, assisted by Miss Wilson, served a most delicious salad and ice cream, supplemented by white and green confections. The guests departed at an hour that testified to their thorough enjoyment of one of the prettiest and most enjoyable social events of the school year. The yucca wC f J " TtTW Senior Class Play 1919 The Senior Class presents as its annual play " Secret Service " in the College Auditorium. The scenes are laid in Richmond, Virginia, on an evening during the Civil War at a time when the Northern forces are entrenched before the city and endeavoring, by all possible means, to break down the defence and capture the Confederate Capitol. The two Dumont brothers, members of the Union Secret Service, have been detailed to secure control of the telegraph office in Richmond, and to send a false dispatch to the general in command of the Confederates, ordering him to withdraw his forces from a certain point and thus give the Union army a chance to carry the advance by a sharp attack. Louis Dumont, in the disguise of a wounded Confederate cavalry officer, comes to Richmond, where he makes love to Edith Varney in order that, through her influence and that of her father. General Varney, he may secure an appointment in the telegraph office. Louis Dumont soon learns to love Edith Varney and then he refuses to allow her to assist him for fear some harm should come to her. She does, nevertheless, get for him a commission in the telegraph office, and when Dum ont is accused by Arrelsford of being a spy, she refuses to believe the accusation. Dumont ' s brother has been brought to Richmond as a Yankee prisoner, and Edith helps to bring the men face to face. A remarkable scene follows, in which Henry Dumont kills himself to save his brother. Dumont is proved a spy, but his unusual behavior in refusing to send to his superiors any information regarding the Con- federate troops intercedes for him, and he is made a prisoner to the Government for the duration of the war, but a prisoner for life to Edith Varney.

ScHULZE, Jr. 5 Carlsbad iii The yugca y " Wi w " The Student Army Training Corps October 1, 1918, witnessed the formal organization of an institution unique in all military history and far reaching in its effect upon the life of all college men and boys. This was the Students ' Army Training Corps, familiarly known as the S. A. T. C, or as some one who wasn ' t in it remarked, " the Saturday Afternoon Tea Club. " The purpose of the organization was to supply officer material for the United States Army, and at the same time to give this material a chance to continue in college as long as was practical. The local unit, consisting of about 120 men, formally pledged their allegiance to the Flag on Tuesday morning, October the first. The company stood at attention while Commandant C. E. Mays read the necessary papers and orders received from Washington, D. C. Following an introduction by Dr. Bruce, the Hon. F. F. Hill delivered an interesting and inspiring address upon the American ideals of the past and present. While awaiting the completion of the Mess Hall and Barracks, it was necessary to quarter the men in four large boarding houses. Two things immediately started and continued until the last man was discharged. They were the " flu " and the bugle calls. The bugle calls were as follows: First call 6:25 a. m. Reveille 6:40 a. m. Assembly inimeelialely after. Physical training 6:45 a. m. Mess immediately after. Sick call 7:25 a. m. Fatigue call 7:30 a. m.

The time from 8:00 a. m. to 12:00 m. was devoted to football, athletics, contests, games, hikes, lectures, and to conference on military subjects. Notice that the rising hour was 6:2.5. That was disliked by practically everyone except the Officer of the Day. The 0. D. liked it because he could go to the C. I. A. the night before and still get plenty of sleep before reveille the next nioniing. The men never could get used to it — you couldn ' t expect a fellow to when he was used to getting up at 4:00 a. ni., slopping the pigs, milking thirteen cows, and currying old Beck and Jack before the sun came up. Perhaps that was the reason they didn ' t gain more than an average of ten or fifteen pounds each in weight while working for Uncle Sam. The officers assigned to the unit were Lieutenant C. E. Mays, Com- manding; Lieutenant Wendell Barrett, Adjutant; Lieutenant W. Payne, Lieutenant W. C. Jansen, Lieutenant P. G. H. Jarvis, and Lieutenant H. H. Halderman, and we are satisfied that a more agreeable and competent set of officers could not have been chosen. Everyone soon caught on to the daily routine and went to work with a will. And then came the first fire drill. About ten minutes after taps tlie bugler blew fire call. It was entirely unexpected and unprepared for. It was too bad that nobody thought about turning on the lights, as one hundred and twenty men trying to get out one narrow door must have been a picture worth seeing. Amid cries of " Turn on the lights, " " Grab tliat fire bucket, " " Where the is my pants, " and such like, the Company literally " fell out " and formed ranks. The dignity of a Second Lieutenant is an awful thing, but that night five Lieutenants deliberately turned their backs to the Company and laughed. In their effort to " fall out " in record time, the majority of the Company were The yucca •• S " - ;. . The yucca •• I - clad in costumes uiisuited for an Arctic climate. Several of the costumes consisted of a water bucket on each foot and a skull cap on the head. We later heard that it was only the efficient work of the S. A. T. C. fire company, as personified by the heroic efforts of Sergeant Turner, that kept the neighbors from being panic stricken. The next landmark of the year was the receipt of tliose " Roosion " rifles. If you never cleaned a rifle — Russian at that — which had been packed in Cosmaline, and — with a ramrod which was six inches too short — you can not appreciate the experience of each S. A. T. C. ' er. No wonder the Russians quit fighting. Even an Irishman would refuse a fight if he hail to use a weapon even similar to the Russian rifle. On the night of November .5th, several of the boys were called, one at a time, to the orderly room, from which could be heard their commands, as they " drilled a company, " much to the mystification of those in the barracks. The mystery was explained tlie next morning, when six boys were chosen to go to the Central Infantry Officers ' Training School, at Camp MacArthur, near Waco. The next historic event of the year was the " Nigger " Minstrel. The College Auditorium was packed to its capacity by a very appreciative audience. Who wouldn ' t appreciate the " jigging " Lawrence St. Clair, Lee Preston, " Cinnamon " Castleberry, and " Double A. " Moore, and the " Black Mammy, " Sergeant K. P. Horton? On November 11th came the momentous news that the armistice was signed. The entire town took a holiday and staged a parade, in both of which the S. A. T. C. gladly took a prominent part. ._« 201 Urn: YUCCA • ii n SsK i. - a y feir Z - Ouft K,yfoR te ' Ritimr }ieR5K The yucca • 1 As in all similar units, a decided slump was soon apparent in the interest for the routine of military life. This was perfectly natural under the circumstances. Hearty co-operation though there was between the mili- tary and school work, everyone felt that the best results in neitlier could be obtained as long as the other was given half of the day. So there were few who were not glad when the news came several weeks later tiiat all S. A. T. C. men were to be discharged. As a fitting climax to the life in the barracks it was voted to give a farewell banquet and reception, with an emphasis on the " eats. " All preparations were finally completed, and everything came up to the expecta- tions, even the weather, which was, as usual in such cases, very rainy. Nevertheless, a large crowd was present, there being enough of the fair sex present, despite the weather, to equal those in khaki. After games in the East Barracks, the " Company " was formed and double-timed over to the Mess Hall, where a substantial dinner was served. On the afternoon of December 20th, all work having been completed, everybody was turned loose with an honorable discharge in one hand and a month ' s pay in the other. Glad to get away they were, it is true, as were practically all soldiers; but even now they are realizing the benefits which they derived from the training. We believe we are safe in saying that no one regrets the few months spent in the S. A. T. C. In years to come when khaki will be but seldom worn and army life has become a memory, we doubt not that such memories will be tinged with a longing to march again in the cadenced step, to enjoy again the comradely co-operation of many, and to live again that carefree life.

C. were taking tlieir usual Monday morning hike, Lieu- tenant Jarvis liad an idea that it wouki he nice to hike to Pilot Knoh. It was a very hot day and every one was tired and thirsty. A farmer rode past. " Sav, friend, " called out Sergeant Turner, " how far is it to Pilot Knoh? " " Oil, a matter of two miles or so, I reckon, " called hack the farmer. Another half hour dragged hy, and another farmer passed. " How far to Pilot Knoh? " Sergeant Turner tried again. " Oh, ahout two miles. " Another weary half hour and then a third farmer came by. Once again Segt. T. tried his luck, " Hey, how far are we from Pilot Knoh? " " Not far, " was the encouraging answer, " only about two miles. " " Well, " sighed Spidora, who is optomistic hy nature, " thank God, we are holdin ' our own, anyhow! " Lieutenant Payne, while inspecting the company one Saturday morn- ing, stopped in front of " Arms And, " who evidently had not shaved for several days. " Moore, " he asked, " how is it tliat you haven ' t shaved this morning? " " But I did, sir. " " How dare you tell me that with all that heard on your face? " Moore rubbed his " whiskers " in surprise. " Well, you see, sir, " he stammered, " there was nine of us to one small lookin ' glass, and in the general confusion I must have shaved some other man ' s face.

" Here, " he growled, " give me a taste of that. " Colbert took one look at his face and decided not to say anything, but handed him a spoon. Lieutenant Mays swallowed a large mouthful and then spat and sputtered for half a minute. " Great Heavens, man! you don ' t feed that stuff to the boys, do you? " " No, sir, " replied Colbert meekly, " it ' s dishwater that we were em- ptyin ' , sir. " The yugca • •• — A e e d c auu D f ese The yugca • 1 Rescued From Under the Woodpile Tuesday, October 1 I just finished joining the S. A. T. C. I feel sorry for the poor civilian. He can ' t appreciate this army life. The speech we heard this morning was mighty fine, but I got tired standing there in tlie sun and went over and sat down in the shade of a tree. Wednesday I thought I was going to have some fun this morning, but I was disappointed. The top sergeant read my name out and told me I was on the police squad. Somebody told me that I must borrow a gun and go up town and arrest anybody who couldn ' t show a pass. I hadn ' t gotten outside the gate when Sgt. Horton yelled at me and made me pick up all the dead leaves in the front yard. He tried to make me believe that that was what the police squad had to do, but he can ' t string me. I ' ve been in the army too long to believe everything I hear. Friday Noon Thank goodness, we won ' t have to clean up this old boarding house yard any more. We move to the barracks this afternoon. October 12 I wish I was back in a boarding house. The barracks is going to be harder to keep clean than the house was. Everybody gets a pass today and tomorrow. Big deal on tonight. Sunday Had a big time last night. I ' m going back tonight. Monday Night I ' m most too sore to write anything tonight. Lieut. Jarvis had me move a woodpile this morning to let someone sweep under it. Then I had to move it back. Saturday, 19th These officers sure are getting particular about everything. They are awfully particular about this saluting business. Just the other day Hatley saluted Lieut. Janssen with his left hand and now he can ' t go to town today. Percy Blackwell got into it, too. Yesterday morrling he met an officer and forgot to take his cigar out of his mouth. I ' m glad I saw Lieut. Haldeman in time yesterday, so I could go ' round the block and not meet him. The yugga •• li - The yugca •• iir Monday, 21st We spent all morning shoveling dirt, building roads, and throwing rocks off the hill. We tried to get rid of all the rocks, but every time we moved one rock, we saw two more that had been under it. Thursday We are learning to drill very fast. We must know nearly all about it by this time. We have also learned not to kick if we get no sugar and have to eat our " fodder " with very little milk on it. Saturday Noon I haven ' t gone on pass yet. Neither have the others. Sgt. Graham told us our bunks wouldn ' t " get by, " but I thought mine was made up nice enough. When Lieut. Mays came through, he told Sgt. Graham to take the names of most of us, 103 of them, to be exact, three being in the hospital and two absent on leave. October 24 Last night we were awakened about 12 o ' clock by that companv pest — the bugler. We didn ' t know what the matter was, but Sgt. Stockard yelled, " Fire Call, " and out we went. Everybody seemed to forget the fire buckets and extinguishers, and came out in different stages of dressing. Blagg, I believe, had on his full regalia, but A- had only his shoes and guitar. In tlie short period of 15 minutes, however, we " fell in. " Lieut. Mays talked a minute and then said we would get out quicker next time. He said it like he knew what he was talking about. October 25, 10:00 p. m. Didn ' t much happen today — just the regular school in the morning and drill in the afternoon — chewed our beans at 6:30 — spent two hours of misery on those hard, narrow, backless benches trying to make Sgt. Turner believe our magazine was a textbook. Spent the time from 9:30 to now in the gentle arts of wrestling, pillow fights, or attempts to " chew an ear. " As usual, someone kicked all the cover off my bunk. October 26 I have an idea that this is a fateful day in our lives. Today we received our Russian rifles. They came packed in axle grease and all our spare time today has been spent in the delightful ( ? ) task of wiping grease. They sure are funny guns. The more grease you wipe off the more comes to take its place. It just literally sweats grease day and night. November 3 That gun of mine is still sweating grease by the quart. Heard several new and expressive words today that have been coined to describe the gun and the way The yugca • ilr that crazy trigger guard eats into your shoulrler. Pvt. Cloer can spend a whole day on this subject and just be started good by night. November 11 Whoopee! You tell ' em, boy, my heart ' s too tender. The excitement started ■when we were awakened before the usual time by horns, whistles, and gunshots. We thought at first that perhaps our friend Villa had started a raid up through this part of the country, but we were soon informed that the armistice had been signed. I don ' t know whether I ' m glad or not. It seems too bad that we couldn ' t get to see a little real service. November 20 Say, if this war is over, I want a discharge. I ' d like to see the Kaiser carry one of these Russian rifles on his shoulder for about a week. December 1 I ' ve about decided that there isn ' t much fun just being in the army. I believe we ' re going to get our discharges pretty soon. We signed 10 papers yesterday and 20 today. I ' ve heard lots about red tape, but Uncle Sam must have invented a special kind for the army. December 21 Haven ' t time to write much. Everything is packed and ready to go. Expect- ing our discharges any minute now. There goes top-kicker ' s whistle. Here ' s hoping it ' s the last time. S. A. T. C. Barracks, November 1. 1918, Denton, Texas. Deer Sally: Well, Sally, in yore last letter you ask me to explane ever darn thing about Army life. Well, Sally, bein ' you are my gal, and we ' un ' s ' are engaged to be marryed, I ' ll shore do it. The reason, Sally, I joined this S. A. T. C. was to help make the world safe for mobocracy, or something like that. Well, Sally, we are being traned to help down the Kaiser, and to get the Crown prince ' s goat. Well, everybody here is supposed to be high skool graduates, so you are wonderin ' how I got in. You knows I ' m not a high skool graduate. Well, Hears how I got in. You know little Willie Scroggins who died last summer of the Hiccups — his maw gave me his unit admission card and I got in as Willie Scroggins. Mum ' s the word on that, cause I ' d get Court Materialed, and shot, if Commander Mays should find it out. You know I never would of gotten yore first letter if I teE YUGCA •• 211 teE YUGCA • hadn ' t been so curious lookin ' tliiough the mail. I come to John Hvtie. 1 knew it was me. So please addresse me as Willie Scroggins, if you don ' t want to get me court materaled. So when I gets to France, and you reads of me bein ' decorated with the iron Kross, I believes that ' s Uncle Sam ' s Honor Badge, remember it ' s not Willie Scroggins at all but just plain Johnnie Hyde. Well to explane, but Pa say ' s you can ' t never explane anything to a woman, you have a corporal over ever squad, and a Captaine over a bunch of squads. The guy ' s who totes the guns are called privates. The guy ' s who does the bossing are called corporals and Sargints. They call ' s us new ones rookies. The old ones is regulars. The difference between a rookie and a regular is. a rooky gets caught at everything, a regular don ' t. Well, I ' m having a time, they blame me with everything. They get my name ever time my bunk ' s not strait. Thev gets my name ever time I turn around. Two of my sargints names are Grayhani and Horton. They take a special interest in me. All they Sargints, corporals and Lieuts. know my name. They calls my name ever few minutes. In fact they like me so well- thev have me to do all the special work, or K. P.. Policing the Barricks. ect. They think I ' m the only one that does it write. Thev must think I was raised in a kitchen, they keep me on K. P. so much. They take such special pains in me. I ' m sure the Commanding Officer of the Camp has ordered them to take special care with me. Every time I get out of step, they tell me about it. I think they are training me to make a corporal, from the interest they take in me. They all say I ' ll make fine soldier if I live long enough. We have rifles called Rooshin ' s rifles. They are made to kill Rooshin ' s with the to Sargint told me, when I ask him why they were called that. You know I take special interest in drilling. I can do drilling fine. They know I ' m so good they keep me in the rear rank and keep the awkward boys in the front rank so the Sargints can be next to them. Well you ask me what I intended to do when the war was over. Well, Sally, I am going to make women my line, fust, last and all the time. I ' m taking special courses on women. I have a whole library on the subject. Mamma told me to go only with the ladies, so I ' ve bought a book entitled. " How to tell a lady at first Sight. " I caught me a girl on Hickory Street, Sunday afternoon. She talked so fast I didn ' t have time to put in a word edgwise. But to take no chances, I pulled out my book to see if she wuz a lady. Rule 34, Page Eighte. sed, " A lady must alwyse have small ears, but I couldn ' t see her ears as she had them all covered up. She waz readin a book called. " How to be Happy, tho Married. " She ask me if I thought a marryed man could be happy. I sed, no. She sez, have you ever been married. I sais, no, but my father was. She would not lei me sea her ears, so I wouldn ' t take no chances on goin tBE YUGCA • 1 with a woman who wuzent a laidy. so I let her go. She komplaned bitterly, fer me leavin her. You know I like these Denton girls, they all are society girls, they shore can entertain a man. You can ' t keep from likin a Denton girl. All the ugly ones are good cooks. That is the reason a soldier boy always goes home to dinner with an ugly gurl. They goes walkin in the evening with the pretty girls. The pretty girls don ' t know how to cook, as they don ' t have time to learn, they primp so much. The army is a queer place. Everybody minds the other feller. Each feller don ' t know what he is going to do his self, but he can tell the other fellow what to do. Corporals, Sargints, Lieutenants, Desk sargints, Captins, Magers, buck privates, first Class privates, and privates in the rear rank, all do what the other fellers say do. The army is a game of watching; the corporals watches the first class privates; the first class privates watches the buck privates; and the Sargint watches the corporals. I don ' t know who watches the highest man. Our Officers sure are popular with the women. The governmint has posted signs on the drill ground, ' " Women please stay olf ground durin drill. " Our officers get by this by stopping the drill. I ' m in the 6th squad. Colbert is my commandeer. The only trouble with him is, he hollers, " Continue the march, " when he ort to holler, " left turn. " Well, Sally, don ' t get jealous, I went out in society last Sunday nite. I called on the sweetest girl, besides you Sally, you ever saw in your life. She wasn ' t a bit bashful. She toald me not to be afraid of her, as she wouldn ' t hurt me. I took her at her word. She learned me lots of new games I never played before. She learned me to dance the Normal bearliug; the Piggy Wiggy dance; the Honky-Donky dance, and the Persimmon Squeeze. Sally, I shore had some time. Sally, don ' t be jealous, I still loves you. For the love of Mike, the dadblamed Bugler is blowin taps. our only Beau, Willie Scroggins, Alias Johnnie Hyde. Per PvT.

S S W » OH The following gems are excerpts from an advance copy of a book which the reviewer has found peculiarly rich in suggestive power. The work is with an appropriateness almost unique in the literary world — called " English of Day After Tomorrow. " After perusing with the attention it deserves, the following illuminating review of the contents of this refreshing original contribution to the body of English research, the thoughtful reader will acknowledge unhesitatingly that post-impres- sionism, futurism, cubism, imagism, and other abstruce-isms are lurking just around the comer of tomorrow in the hitherto irreproachable field of literature. The table of contents of this splen- didly planned text reveals a three fold subject matter, which we shall for convenience group under the following heads: I. Composition. II. English Literature. III. Orthography (simplified and other- wise). IV. Appendix (to which is relegated miscel- laneous information. It is really a thesaurus of universal tidbits, chiefly Biblical). This resume cannot hope to be exhaustive; its function will have been fulfilled if the earnest student or teacher (for even teachers are not stamped Q. E. D.) shall be sufficiently tempted to do more than nibble the edges of a work which we predict will prove to be a dynamic factor in the educational system of the next century. The yucca 1 I. Composition The section on composition is especially concrete in its treatment of the punctuation. The purpose of punctuation, so we are informed by the imquestionable authority of the authors (who will be revealed at the climax of this review. N. B. use of suspence), is to give the user thereof a better grade. Narration, so this delightfully lucid little monograph informs us, is the process of narrowing down that which is too broad for a given purpose. The composite authors pay their joint respects to grammar. Unusually scholarly in their treatment of parsing. Their method is made unmistakably plain by the use of copious and carefully selected illustrations, one of which we herewith append: " Parse the verb in the following sentence: ' He polished the shoes very nicely. ' Very is a transative verb, for its action is received by the object nicely.) " No room for error after such an incan- descent example. Superb is the only term applicable to the disquisition of ultra modem treatise on figures of speech. The writer was particularly struck with their specimen of metaphor — surely no student could ever forget it; it must adhere to his memory like a grass burr: " Let us lay our heads together and build a wooden pavement. " It is with some degree of hesitation that we present extracts from the student themes, for we realize they are so far beyond anything that the average student can hope to produce as to be discouraging. But hitch your wagon to a star as the Bible says; so we can take the possible risk: (conclusion of an expository essay, in which an attempt to define hero has been made. As a last resort the student turns to contrast the true hero with the demagogue, and pedagogue do sound alike, and perhaps there are other and more signifi- cant points of resemblance). At any rate this is the manful peroration: " A hero is a man who really accomplishes something, while a pedagogue (demagogue) merely makes a great deal of noise and does nothing. " Another conclusion showing a lambent flame of latent genius is the fitting climax to an exciting explanation of how to make Divinity fudge: " Sit on a hot stove and stir constantly. When almost cold, begin to beat and continue to do so until quiet stiff. " There is perhaps only one sentence in the section of composition which would not be anticlimatic in view of what has just been said. But with a 226 The yucca •• 1 ' feeling of confidence we offer the following morsel to our enthralled readers: " Croquet is a game played by people with wooden mallets and balls. " II. LiTEiiATURE. English et al. Nothing less fascinating than the inspired authors ' (no, that aposthophe is not misplaced; see Wooley, 251, for if you live to the bitter end, you will discover the authors to be conmion gender, plural number) equally inspired handling of literature could tempt us from such scintillating specimen as the croquet splinter above. English literature intrinsically absorbing as it is, has been made even more so by the originality of the authors ' unpedantic attitude. The fruits of deep and intense research are apparent in this unstinted contribution to the sum total of human knowledge. Chaucer, we are told, married Ann Hathway and wrote Love ' s Labor ' s Lost. While we are on the drama, the following will be apropos: " A miracle play is a play in which a miracle occurs, e. g. the appearance of the Ghost in Hamlet. " The genesis of Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained are treated in a most suggestive manner. The inspiration seems undoubtedly domestic. Paradise Lost was written — so says " English of Day After Tomorrow " — when Milton married a mismated spouse; Paradise Regained was his poem of gratitude at her timely death. Dido — we have it on the word of his unique collaborator, is a name for a pet dog (analogous to Fido, no doubt). Nor is our own American literature slighted. Longfellow, the family favorite, joint heir with the Family Bible and Plush Autograph Album to the parlor table, was bom (see page 387 of " English of Day After Tomorrow " ) in Portland, Maine, while his parents were traveling in Europe. He survived this prenomenonal genesus, however, and attained a hale and hearty old age. He had many fast friends, the fastest of which were Phoebe and Alice Carey. III. Spelling (Simplified and Dutch Reformed). No doubt. Gentle Reader is on tiptoe to see what dire things are to be done to orthography by the rising generation. The following is a mild forecast of what may be reasonably expected (only the most conservative instances are cited). 1. Pilgrim ' s Progress was wrote by John Bunion. The yugca •• ilr 2.

' s Lo! a wonderful new country has been discovered. It far surpasses in interest the regions described by Swift and Manderville of even the wonderland of Alice. One need not drink a magic potion nor even gaze into the depths of a mirror to behold the marvels of this land. The only requisite is to enroll in French 51 A and to report to M 5 with ears keen and mind open. One must be rather careful, however, not to become the victim of the spell, as were Paul and Phillip. According to a passage selected for dictation on a test, they were two little boys who happened to be friends starting meekly for school as usual; but, in the course of half a dozen papers, they became two lovers, then twelve lovers and friends, and finally two armies which may have been either lovers or friends or neither. Needless to say, they never reached school, but kept on into the land of miracles. After their rapid growth they naturally needed new clothes and they started on a shopping tour. They happened to stop in front of a butcher shop, and, as their journey had made them rather hungry, decided to carry some steak; but, to their surprise, they found that only watermelons and pineapples were sold here. They stopped only long enough to ask directions to the nearest style shop, but learned that the bakery was the place to buy clothes, while a shop contained only leaves. They began to wonder if they had accidentally entered the garden of Eden; but, being imbued with the false modesty of modem beings, they hurried on to the bakery. Here they met their old friend the watermelon, but lie no longer reposed on ice to tempt the purchaser. He was now working valiantly, not The yugca 5 ••••••• making clothes, however, as the information as to the function of the bakery had led them to believe, but making pies. The mistake concerning the commodity sold in bakeries was easily explained when they learned first that cakes and pies were something like hooks and then that a hook was a garment. All the wonder they had experienced, however, did not prevent astonishment when someone remarked that Woodrow Wilson was president of our hook. They left the bakery in heated discussion as to whether Mr. Wilson had become a baker or a tailor after leaving the presidential chair. Being rather doubtful as to tiie relative merits of leaves and hooks as protection from the weather, they stopped a passerby to ask if no other form of raiment was in good style. Oh, yes, indeed, sofas were a regular part of boys ' clothing and were ordinarily worn on the head. This caused some dispute, however, as other natives of the land insisted that a sofa was either a cape or another name for the blue sky above. The wanderers easily decided that they preferred using the sofas as capes, but they still were not satisfied. Constant walking had made their feet rather sore and they begged to know if there were no place to buy shoes. This idea was received with hoots as shoes had long been out of use except as a war commodity; and even in the army only the big men wore them, while the smaller ones preferred rubbers. Discouraged by this news, but somewhat consoled by the thought of the money saved, they wended their way to a hotel and entered the lobby. As they glanced around, they saw numbers of people writing with ink bottles, but the strangest sight which met their eyes was a man who was trying desperately to force a huge inkwell into a fountain pen, that he might write a letter with the latter. They lacked the courage to remain in company with so many queer people, and decided to find rooms in a private home. They approached a neat-looking house and knocked timidly. They were received cordially and invited into the living room. Seeing two objects which appeared to be large ann-chairs they dropped wearily into them, or rather, toward them, for one suddenly became a kitchen knife and the other a piece of paper with writing on it. There was nothing left to sit on except the sofa, which was serving just then as a table cover, and they mounted wearily to it. The yugca • Thinking to make a good impression, tliey complimented the lady on being a good housekeeper, but much to their surprise she was highly insulted, and informed them that a good iiousekeeper was a menagerie, or at best a pretty place for animals. They finally appeased her wrath and were allowed to remain for dinner. Witli mingled emotions the party repaired to the dining room and was served with crumbs. Tiiey felt no astonishment at this rather remarkable feast when they learned that the servant had just ironed, not only tlie dinner, but the breakfast and supper as well. After the repast the maid carefully gathered the remaining crumbs, put some away in the cupboard and carried others into the kitchen to be washed. She then folded herself up and put herself in the drawer of the cabinet to wait for the next meal. Wondering if the servants worked in relays, the friends, lovers, or armies stole into the kitchen to investigate. They stood dumbfounded in the door to watch a dishrag who was washing the clothes, while a dishtowel ironed them. Another dishrag stood on the table holding the tea and a second cuptowel held the coffee. The strangers glanced anxiously around to see if the crumbs had yet been washed, but nothing could be seen for the fierce rain and snowstorm which was raging in the kitchen sink. Fearing that the tempest might break out in the rest of the kitchen, they beat a hasty retreat from the house and the land, stopping only long enough in the butler ' s pantry to make sure that a crowd of young folks were playing snowball and skating on the refrigerator. The yugca ••• •• How the Yucca Won the War Recently a typist was reading some " ) iicca " copy. He began: ' " Since the dev??, Oh, the devil — " ' and at that moment he swallowed his false teeth. A horrified stenographer instantly tendered her resignation and in so doing knocked over a pail of gasoline, which, flowing gently into a lighted cigarette, became a mass of flame, which, in turn, completely annihilated the entire city, and the embers, flowing gently in the bluish ozone, came in contact with a huge tank of oil, and the subsequent terrific explodings being heard around the world, struck terror to the German authorities, who, thinking the enemy aircraft approaching, obliterated the entire German lighting system, and thus caused such confused demoralization of the army, that peace was instantly declared, in order that the German people might recuperate. After some one had cleared away much debris, carted away the charred bodies of two ink wells, and gathered up, with the aid of a spoon, the baked remains of a tongue of a shoe, the original word was found to be " development.

Smith Yucca Family Album Yes, this is Grandfather McAlister. He was a fine looking young man until his senior year in the N. T. S. N. C. There the pain and anxiety incident to the publication of the annual in general and particularly the choice of an associate art editor, entirely undermined his constitution, and he has never been the same again. He was so overcome by his arduous task that his Roman nose almost ceased to Roman and his smooth tresses reared themselves into the pompadour you now see in this picture. This is Uncle Wynne Graham. That fierce expression was occasioned, not by a career devoted to the tracking of criminals to their haunts, but to four strenuous years of endeavor to elude the clutches of various and sundry Normalitetresses. But with all his wonderful agility, he was at last ensnared by a siren from C. I. A. who is particularly attractive to associate editors of the ' ' Yucca. " When the fall term opened, while Uncle Wynne was a student, three objects were exhibited with pride to the new students — the drinking fountain, the bookroom, and Wynne Graham. I hope you recognize this picture. It was taken when Sister Mary Tanner was having her first love affair. Up to that time slie had had such a high temper that the family cat ran under the bed when it was time for Mary to come from school. But after her heart had Ijeen softened by love she was much kinder to boys and animals. The yugca ic lk i iKif This prim, fat lady is Cousin Nannie. She selected the motion pictures as her career, but her unusual corpulency soon caused her to he stranded. No this isn ' t the fat man in Barnum and Bailey; it is Cousin Dago. He was known far and wide as having the fairest complexion of any of our family. But then that might he traced to the fact that he stayed indoors so much to study and took little outdoor exercises. We greatly prize this picture of Aunt Mary Stout because in her youth she was so frail we despaired of raising her to he more than eighty. She was so queer. She could not tolerate a man even in her yard, and she finally moved to New York so she wouhl not he bothered by seeing men. Then, too, she hoped to gain flesh by a change of climate. Here is Aunt Susie. Poor soul, her life was blighted by the fact that she had to wear a wig. Perhaps you remember her long black curls? Well, they were all false. Don ' t you think this just like Brother Stockard . ' ' He was so pious that his going to China as a toe dancer was not unexpected by his family. He made many peregrinations to Dallas and Fort Worth, presumably in the i!iterest of the " Yucca " but a Fort Worth detective has since revealed that he missed his trains to Denton because he was taking private lessons in the art of learning to point his toe expressively. Now this picture is an excellent one. It is of Cousin Iva Mae, who was a great suffrage leader. The first time she voted was at the " Yucca " election in 1918 when she voted for herself. Her deep bass voice causes her to l)e in constant demand as a stump speaker. A s evp i-R. Tr; Zhh-k, The yucca •• 1 The Solitary Student Behold her bending o ' er her book?, Yon solitary Normal lass.
