Some years ago Dean Clark, organizer and director of the Mary Arden Ckib, dared to dream of a club room for her loved girls. She had in mind a building adjacent to the campus, where the club could assemble for business and for social meetings, and where all the graces of love and loyalty to the school and to each other might be fostered. The summer of 1922 saw the realization of the dream, and now the Mary Arden Club is at home in one of the most attractive houses in the college community. The location of the Lodge is ideal. It is on Avenue A, just across the street from the Library. We might say that it is in the physical center of the college life; we might also say that it is already proving the spiritual center of the college; for here, afternoon and evening, the beautiful club room is the scene of much gaiety, when the girls entertain each other or their friends, or when they graciously let others entertain in their home. Sometimes it is a breakfast a party of the Marys decides to have in the Lodge. Then the dainty little dining room becomes the scene of merry-making, where girls, tired of boarding-house fare, serve what they like to themselves in the way they like it. During the winter months the indoors part of the Lodge has been most inviting, but as Seventeen the sun goes north, the pergola shows its charms, and the long evenings of spring find it the most popular part of the house. The building of the Mary Arden Lodge is a great event in the history of the college. It is the first material expression of the unifying influence of our college life. The little pin that the girls have worn, the club colors, and the leader of the lessons have always bound these girls together; but now they are able to sit by their own fire and tell many a tale of " grouse in the gun room; " and the tie that binds, not only to each other but also to the college, is made all the stronger. The Lodge is the fruit of much toil. Years of careful planning and hoarding of small contributions have gone into it, but the result is a beautiful house by the side of the road. If " an institution is the lengthened shadow of a man, " this Lodge is the lengthened shadow of the leader and her girls; and in the years to come many Marys will rest in its shade, enjoy its refreshing influence, and journey on, stronger because of its helpfulness. All honor to Dean Clark and the Mary Arden Club for their wis- dom and faith and patience in bringing this worthy enterprise to pass. The Club Room Eighteen f 0nv ogpital PERHAPS in some far distant Utopia human beings will be able to " trade in " their worn-out bodies for new models with electric start- ers and other modern equipment. But until that happy day, everybody will need at some time or other to betake himself to a human garage, for repairs of injuries, ranging in seriousness from a puncture to a broken steering gear. To meet just such a universal human need in this col- lege is the purpose of our hospital. For being sick is a sore trial at any time, but being sick away from home is almost more than flesh and blood can bear. The first hospital we had was located on Mulberry street; how- ever, it was destined to be short-lived, for its existence was curtailed in less than a year when a larger building on the corner of Sycamore Street and Avenue B was secured. Each club prepared a room, and it is customary for the ailing members of the societies to occupy the rooms of their respective clubs. The running expenses are met by the volun- tary two-dollar fee paid by the faculty and student body. As the college now had a well eciuipped hospital, another problem arose: that of getting a well-trained and competent nurse, for it was evident that the unfortunate victims would need a little care. As in Nineteen all other instances of like nature, Dr. Bruce displayed good judgment in the selection of Mrs. A. Grabbe. Mrs. Grabbe held the position of head nurse until in September, 1922, when she was made superintendent of the hospital. She possesses those qualities that are essential to a person who is to administer first aid to unhappy victims who are away from home and are suffering. She thri -es on emergencies and is the mistress of any situation from splinters to pneumonia. As it was impossible for one nurse to cure " while you wait " and to care for those in " the land of counterpane " at the same time, help for Mrs. Grabbe has been secured at different times. At present three assistants, Miss Annie May Rickerich, Mrs. Lydia Schmalz, and Mrs. C. Grusendorf, are employed. They are all of a kind, loval)le nature, and their smiles help to drive away that dreadful malady which, when you are not at home, usually goes hand in hand with all other illness — homesickness. Of the 4495 first-aid cases since September, 1922, perhaps twenty- five per cent would have required the attention of a physician at a mini- mum cost of more than eight hundred dollars. Moreover, there have been 409 bed patients in the hospital since the winter term of 1922. They were saved much expense, as all that they had to pay for, above the original fee, was doctor calls and castor oil. Up to this time only two deaths have occurred, a remarkable record for so large an institution. Long li ' e and thrive our health-provoking hospital! First Aid Treatment Twenty I illiam Bouglasi putler IT was after the Yucca of 1922 had gone to press that Dean Butler passed away. It has seemed fitting; that, in addition to the Me- morial Service in Chapel on May third and the Memorial Edition of the Campus Chat on May thirteenth, a few words of appreciation of our wel]-belo ' ed friend be also placed in this more permanent form of the annual of the North Texas State Normal College. For sixteen years Professor Butler walked in and out among us, and all who came in touch with him were made better b ' it. His genial smile, kindly greeting, whimsical hu- mor, friendh " handshake will long be remembered by all who entered his classroom and his office. Nor will his grave counsel and serious ad- monition soon be forgot b ' those whom it became his d ut - to restrain. He was endowed with a keen intellect, trained in college and uni ersity. His scholarly interests were aried and extensi " e. He was a master in the arts of the schoolroom. Outside interests in lodge, business, and church demanded much of his time, but he was ne -ertheless essentially a man of home ties. He had the affectionate regard of his neighbors, the uni ■ersal respect of his fellow citizens, and the utmost confidence of his associates in every enterprise. He was the soul of gentle and unfailing courtes ' in every circumstance of life. The beneficent influence of such a life cannot be overestimated. Mr. Butler gave his best to all of us, and made a brave fight for life. But when the summons came, he went down the dark valley without fear, strong in the faith of immortalitw T ' ii ' entv-one Borotf)p ilarie tovtp ON the twenty-sixth of May, 1922, the fac- ulty and students of the North Texas State Normal College were shocked and grieved to learn of the pass- ing away of Miss Dorothy Marie Storey, a beloved teacher of the Domestic Science Department. Only the most intimate of her friends had known during the last month of her life that she was in the grip of a serious malady that had caused, at fre- quent intervals, periods of intense suffering, before the last fatal attack came. Loving life, its pleasures, its manifold duties and re- sponsibilities, she had thrown herself into every activity with a radiant joyousness that permitted no w ' ords of complaint. Bringing into class room work and Ijusiness relations the same graciousness of manner and thoughtful consideration of others that distinguished her social intercourse, she was able, as a result of her pleasing personality and artistic tem- perament, to enrich every circle of her acquaintanceship. She met life ' s challenge bravely day by day, and its last challenge she faced with measureless courage. " I can not say, and I will not say That she is dead — she is just away! With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand. She has wandered on into an unknown land, And left us dreaming how very fair. It needs must be, since she lingers there. " Twenty-two ' Etjntinisttdtion Twent -three The College JPregibent ' si Mt Ht THE editor of the Yucca has requested me to write a " message to the stu- dents " of the session 1922-23, and, at the risk of being charged with giving a superabundance of advice, I comply with his request. First, I wish to congratulate you and to thank you, as a whole, upon the fine spirit, the esj rit de corps, the co-operation, and the general conduct that have characterized the students during the present session, which many have pro- nounced the best in the history of the institution. The institution has ad ' anced during the last few years from the status of a high school — as measured by college standards — to that of a senior college, recog- nized throughout the entire country as a college of the first class, and the students during these years have been an important factor in this advance and in securing this recognition. I would impress upon you that the duty and the responsibility of maintaining our standards and of advancing them and contributing further to the increasing public favor and popularity of your school devoK ' es upon you while here and after you leave here. I would emphasize your obligation to the State that, through its legislatures, has made possible the opportunities you have enjoyed here. The purpose of this school is that of sending forth, year after year, young men and women fit to teach, to guide, and to direct properly the throngs of Twenty-four children upon wlumi mir ( lONx-rnnifiU must depend for its future citizenship and society for its ideals of li ing. This has been and still is, as it will always be, the object of its creation, its maintenance and its right to live, and the college depends upon you to demonstrate the wisdom of the expenditure of the people ' s money in perpetuating the institution and further increasing its facilities and its powers for the good of society and the Go ernment. I most assuredly wish for each of you an overflowing measure of what the world calls " success, " but I would impress upon you that it is not very material how the world at large measures your success and to say that I hope for you that kind of " success " and that kind of life that is measured by the amount cf good you can do to others and what you contribute to the ele •ation of the nioral stand- ards of society: that success whose achie ' ements ignore personal aggrandizement and exalt living: that puts duty above pleasure, charac- ter above reputation, honor above office, virtue above wealth, influence abo " e power of position. I would disil- lusionize you from any sus- picion that the world owes you a living or anything else. You should pay " to the utter- most farthing " for all you get. You should have that spirit of true manliness that de- mands the right to pa ' for what you receive; to earn all rewards and to merit all honors bestowed upon you. ' hosoe ' er does not subscribe to this ideal is a mendicant, a beggar holding out his hand for alms, a supplicant begging for what is unearned, un- merited, imdeserved. I would, if by any means I could, make you feel in the deepest recesses of your being that, when your Creator calls you to end your career in life, whatever your station may have been, it will be infinitely better for you that you leave the world in debt to you than to lea%-e it in debt to the world. With this actuating principle always before you, you will be genuinely helpful to every indi idual with whom you associate, a model for every comnumit - in which you live, and a benediction to your generation.

Tjieir loyalty and their ideals reflect the training of their alma mater, and it rests with her whether her children rise up and call her blessed. She must build a " living thing, " as did the Servant in the House; " a thing made up of the beating of human hearts, of the nameless music of men ' s souls. " Hers is the work of opening their eyes that they may see and, unstopping their ears, that their souls may be in tune with the Infinite. This Mother Beautiful would have her sons and daughters learn as did the saints of old " to be cheerful when it is ditificult to be cheerful, patient when it is difficult to be patient; to push on when the temptation is to stand still; to keep silent when the desire is to talk; and to be agreeable when they want to be disagreeable. " She would pray for them as teachers the abundant life and would have them grow daily into the likeness of the world ' s great " Teacher of Men. " C,, J . r- - . Twenlv-eighl Jf acultp anb Officers!

But even Juliet should have known that Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, or Heloise would not have had the same careers if they had started out in life as Hcpzibah, Abigail, or Mehitabel. It is hard to conceive of the face of a damsel named Hepzibah " launching a thousand ships. " now, isn ' t it? Consequently we have long wished to leave our outgrown shell of a name, " normal " college and take the more accurate and more worthy appellation of Teachers ' College. For years Dr. Bruce, with his characteristic broad vision, has urged the change. " Normal, " as he pointed out, applied to the French cramming schools, where — in about six weeks — people were trained to teach by rule of thumb (Latin, norma, a rule). At last, by legislative enactment, we are to put away childish things, and assume the toga of manhood. Henceforth our name proclaims our dignity as a professional college. And so we make our bow on June 12, 1923, as the North Texas State Teachers ' College. Thirty-eight zxanx Thirlv-nine Jones Tami ' ke NUTT Senior €ia 0iiittv Robert A. Tampke .

It includes the First Year class and the Second Year class, which correspond to the tenth and eleventh grades respectively in an accredited high school. These classes serve two distinct purposes. Numbers of students throughout the State, although they have high ambitions and therefore wish to receive college educations, live too far from any affiliated high school to have the advan- tage of high school training. Furthermore, many people have been interrupted in their studies until they feel that they are too mature to care to go to a high school. To both of these types of students the Normal School affords opportunity to fulfill the standard requirements for college entrance here and elsewhere. Besides, the First and Second Year classes are intended to prepare students to become teachers in such public schools of the State as do not require so thorough a training as the larger schools do.

On the day before Thanksgiving Mary Lothrop, Ruth Carmichael, Mary Virginia Potts, Myrtle Bowden, and Alda Belle Struwe, from Education 211, presented The Quest of an Indian Cradle in the Observation Room of the Train- ing School. The play was worked out with the Training School children as a history project to teach the true spirit of Thanksgiving. The first act represented a present day school room in which Dorothy, a little girl, fell asleep and dreamed of the first Thanksgi ' ing. The second act was the dream of the little girl, and the characters, the Pilgrims and Indians, enacted the scenes of 1621. One hundred fifteen program for Jf etjruarp l h)entp= econb A delightful program was given in chapel on February 22nd, by the pupils of the primary department of the Training School, under the direction of Miss Mamie Smith of the Music Department and the primary teachers. In the Colonial dance by the first grade the white perukes of the miniature gentlemen and the hoop-skirts of the little belles took us back to a bygone day. The second grade, in military tricorners, with red, white and blue cockades, gave a group of patriotic songs and pantomimes, in which the " Spirit of ' 76 " brought insistent applause. Then the third grade children sang the " Minuet " from Don Juan, and danced the delightful measures of this graceful old Colonial dance, without which no George Washington program is quite complete. 0?ie hundred sixteen St. Clair Coach Fours Coach Crutsinger Chairman Athletic Committee tfjleticsi THE old reliable admonition that counsels, " moderation in all things, " applies with full force to college athletics; not that it is more applicable there than in other activities, but that it is of special interest and alue to those interested in, and responsible for, the conduct of sports in any institution. The school that fails to heed such advice is in for rough going. For that reason con- stant attention to the admonition is especially fitting in a college that trains teachers. The various branches of intercollegiate athletics, as well as interscholastic. seem to have won a permanent place on the program, provided they are not allowed to run wild, and are kept constantly under strict regulation. So super- vised, they undoubtedly have their value, which is apparent to anybody with any knowledge or experience along that line. Space available will not permit a summary of the benefits to be derived from interschool sports, nor of the improve- ments in them that are easily noticeable; but they are very positively improving Price Student Mgr. of Athletics Snyder Chairman of Athletic Council One hundred seventeen and in many ways. Those whose experience runs back fifteen or twenty years are in position to testify to that fact. However, there still remain other im- provements to be accomplished; and in this field, as elsewhere, eternal vigilance is the price of success. The Faculty Athletic Committee of this College, under authority delegated by the President, is endea ' oring to apply the preserving ointment of modera- tion to intercollegiate athletics in the following various particulars. First, constant diligence is used to see that the rules of the Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association are strictly lived up to. Second, the scholarship standing and deportment of all candidates for teams is carefully watched. Third, atten- tion is given to the problem of bringing the benefits of athletic sports to the greatest possible number of students. Fourth, an effort is made so to arrange the schedules of games and sports that there will be as little interference as possible with class and study hours. It is the ideal of the Committee that all athletes shall be, in the fullest sense, worthy representatives of this College. The-j cordial co-operation of the entire College community is essential to the realization of that ideal. . SHENHURST Mii.i.ER Jakkhi. YELL LE.ADF:RS C. SSID. Y One hundred eighteen Jnntball One liundred nineteen Jforetuorb The 1922 football season was far more successful than that of 1921. The beginning was unfavorable, with the Eagles losing two games. However, as the season progressed, the team became more alive. With new animation came victories, and the interest of the students in the team increased. When the Eagles made their first ap- pearance at home, a large crowd was out to see them win their first important victor -. After the team hit its stride, no other games were lost. The 1922 season was the Denton Normal ' s first year in the T. I. A. A. Everybody was anxious to see how our team compared with the others. Although conditions were such that they could not claim the championship, the Eagles were the only ujidefeated team in the association. As a climax to the season with a poor beginning, the Denton Normal regained from Southwest Texas State Normal the normal college championship of Texas. To this the Eagles hope to add in 1923 the leadership in the T. I. A. A. One hutulred turiilv FoUTS, Conch. Thereon J. Fouts, the Eagle football coach, was the main- stay of the team. Starting the season with only a few old men, most of whom were playing in new positions, he made a team that was to be reckoned with. Although the two opening games were lost by overwhelming scores, he was not dis- heartened. In his quiet, consistent manner he trained the team so well that not another game was lost during the season. Furthermore, because he teaches his men to be men first and athletes ne. t, he has the support of the entire college. One hundred hccnty-one One hundred Iwenly-lwo W " reliminarp eas»on ' ITH the opening of training camp at Denton Normal, September loth, prospects were not very bright for a successful football season. There were about twenty candidates present. Only four of these were letter men from last year. Under the direction of Coach Fouts, the men rushed through the preliminary work and at the end cf a week ' s time the squad was ready for the first scrimmage. The men were thoroughly drilled in the essentials and the rudimentary principles of the game. From the first two games of the season very little could be ascer- tained as to the real strength of the team in comparison with that of other teams in the T. I. A. A. since these games were played with teams in the Southwestern Con- ference. Green, Trainer. One hundn-d hcciily-lkree Davidson, Ca plain Guy Davidson came from the Denton High School in 1920. During that year he was alternated between end and backfield. Although light, he had plenty of grit, and his playing at end and quarter during the 1921 season was rewarded by his election to the captaincy of the 1922 Eagle squad. Guy had an uncanny ability to foresee the opponent ' s plays, and many were the end runs that he stopped before they were fairly started. He was not a directing captain, but was one that led his team into the fight. One hundred tweyily-Jour Brannan, Caplain-Elect Very seldom is a captain of any team elected unamimously by a secret written ballot. But Brannan was so honored by his team-mates in their selection of a captain for the Eagle football team of 192, . Returning this season after an absence of a year, " Warhorse " was changed from his old position at end to the backfield, where he starred at fullback. He was especially good at line plunging and was effective on the de- fense, stopping line plunges and intercepting passes. He will make a hard hitting, aggressive leader for the 1923 squad. One hundred twenty-five Davis aiops Attempted Run DENTON NORMAL 0, BAYLOR 55 PLAYING their first game with an eleven of the Southwestern Conference, the Normal College Eagles were defeated by the powerful Baylor University Bears. The game was played in Waco. The Baylor line averaged over two hundred pounds, and their backfield averaged one hundred and eighty pounds. The Eagles ' line averaged one hundred and seventy pounds, and the backfield one hundred and fifty-five pounds. Although defeated by a large score, the Eagles fought every minute. Every down was hotly contested by them. But the superiority of the Baylor team was shown throughout the game. Baylor later won the Southwestern Conference championship and defeated teams of her own conference by larger scores than she did the Eagles. Smmm ' -. J ' ' f This was a splendid game for the Eagles, making each man real- ize the work necessary to make a real team, and the experience gained here was shown in later games. Baylor has asked the Eagles for another game for the fall of 1923, and, as she loses many of her men of this year ' s eleven, we may compete with them on more even terms. I. West, End W.

They were defeated 66 to 0, but this game did not diminish their courage and fight against other teams. The Mustangs had a well balanced team, and, by superior playing, they piled up a big score on the Eagles. Poor tackling by the Eagles was also responsible for the score. The score at the end of the first quarter was 21 to in favor of S. M. U. The Eagles fought harder in the second quarter and did not allow their opponents to score. However the Mustangs began the second half with a rush and ran the score up almost at will. The Eagles were playing against fresh men all during the game, as substitutions were num- erous. In the third quarter they faced a new team of Mustangs and were so worn out that they could not stop them. This was the second game with teams of the Southwestern Con- ference, and although defeated in both of these, the Eagles worked even harder for ' the games in their own conference. f McAlistek, Tackle Tampke, Tackle One hundred twentv-seven IVedge Defense Blocks Burleso o DENTON NORMAL 13, BURLESON 9 N October 20th the Eagles won their first game of the season by defeating Burleson College at Green ille. The Eagles were outplayed during the first half, Burleson being 3 points in the lead as the result of a drop-kick liy Aldrege. In the second half the Eagles showed real form and carried the ball down the field, Slack carrying it over for a touchdown. Griffith kicked goal. However, the score was soon changed, as Burleson made a touchdown because of a fumble by the Normal. - % A • L ' ntil early in the fourth period the score was 9 to 7 in fa ' or of Burleson, but " Dago " W ' ilkerson began to use the pass. Walter West caught six consecutive passes and placed the Eagles within striking distance of Burleson ' s goal; Grif- fith carried the ball over on plunges, Init goal was missed. The Eagles began another rush toward Burleson ' s goal and were on the five-yard line when the whistle blew. Walter West, Griffith, " Dago " Wilkerson, and Slack starred for the Eagles in this game, playing an excellent game both on offensive and defensive. % : D.wis, Tackle POLLAN, Guard One hundred twenty-eight Duvidson Injured in Linr Buck DENTON NORMAL 7, CRUBBS 7 MAKING an effort to a ' enge their one-sided defeat of last season, the Grubbs Vocational College tied the Denton Normal in a seesaw- game at Arlington, Texas. This was the fourth game, and the Eagles, recalling the easy victory of last season, expected to add another victory to the one over Burleson. But the Hornets were stronger than last year, and aided by several fumbles of the Eagles, they held the Normal to a tie. In the first quarter the Eagles kicked off.

But the Lions were a tame bunch before the Eagles got through with them. The teams were evenly matched in weight, but the superior coach- ing of Mr. Pouts was shown in the remarkable playing of the Eagles, who had the old-time fight characteristic of all Eagle teams. The game began with a rush, the Eagles taking the lead early and runing up 30 points. But for fumbles the score would have been much larger. The Eagles punted only once during the game, while Commerce punted ten times. The White and Green line f played unusually well, each man being in the fight all through the game. Brannan stood out tor the Eagles, making three touchdowns and always carrying the ball for a gain. Wilkerson also played a good game.

Trinity was favored over the Eagles, but did not have the team to stop the line plunging of Brannan. E -ery player on the team did his very best, and time after time the Trinity backs were thrown for a loss. The only score they could make was from a couple of passes in the last minute of play in the second quarter. It was in this same period that the Eagles scored their touchdowns, Claude Brannan making them both. Brannan also played a wonderful game on the defense. " Dago " ' ilkerson showed ex- cellent judgment in handling the team. In the last half he tised a defensive game aided by Slack ' s lung punts. Walter and I. West deserve special mention for their good game. Walter is one of the best pass receivers in the state and many times this season has he grabbed passes that looked sure for an opponent ' s hands. The Eagles will long remem- ber this game, for Trinity was the only team in the T. I. A. A. to - Ug defeat . ' Austin College. W " A f S[..

This game was hard fought throughout, as the Eagles were anxious to wipe out the 7 to 7 tie that had been played earlier in the season. Grubbs fought hard to win the game, but could not overcome the play of the Eagles. In the third quarter the Eagles began a rush for the Grubbs ' goal line. Two passes, Wilkerson to Brannan, gained twent ' - five yards. Both passes were quickly and une.xpectedly pulled and paved the way for a touchdown. With eight yards to go, Brannan was called to carry the ball o -er. In two attempts he failed, but in the third trial he carried the ball over for the only score of the game. In the last few moments of the game all the Eagle supporters were held in suspense by Grubbs ' gaining fift ' yards in a very little time and continuing to gain each down until they had carried the ball to the Eagles ' two-yard line when the whistle blew.

" This was heard from every student of the North Texas State Normal College following the Thanks- giving game with San Marcos, played in Denton. This game was slow but was hard fought throughout. San Marcos scored first, making a touchdown in the second quarter. The Eagles came back in the third quarter and evened the court, but for only a short time, as San Marcos made another touch- down and kicked goal in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter the Eagles really came to life. The students were begging for a touchdown, and the old team carried the ball over the line for a score. West kicked and tied the score, 13 to 13. For a time it looked like a tie game, but " Bitsy " McCray, an Eagle player, who had been injured most of the season, kicked a goal from placement for 3 points and the game was won! Balch, Tampke, McAllister and Wilker- son played their last game for the Eagles. These men are good athletes and clean sports. The college regrets to lose them. WiLKERSON, Quarter One hundred thirty-three Ii!i O . « 4. i 3 ?. KlEI ' I ' EK Dodson COOI ' EK Noah Kelsey Cf)e Caglet quab Without participating in any conference games, the Eaglets were responsible to a considerable degree for the successes of the 1922 season. They served daily as a team for the Eagles to practice against and thus kept the first team in fighting trim. In fact, the men of the Eagle squad were forced to hustle to retain their positions, and the Eaglets, at the same time, were training possible stars for the 1923 team. Besides per- forming these strenuous duties, the second team played four games with high school and college teams, winning two and losing two. Selvidge Smith Riley Posey One hundred thirty-Jour laskftball One hundred thirty-five Jforetoorb The 1923 basketball season was practically a repetition of the success of the preceding year. Denton Normal has upheld its reputa- tion of being able to place a team on the field equal to the best in the country, a team that has gone through two seasons with only one T. I. A. A. defeat against its record. Basketball has seen a wonderful gain in popularity, as shown by the vast crowds that gathered even for the less important games of the season. This widespread interest in the Eagles has resulted in such a large attendance that a more spacious basketball pavilion is badly needed. No doubt that many more would come than now do if they were sure of seating accommodations. One big reason why the Eagles always win is that the student body unanimously support them. It is safe to say that ninety-nine per cent of the Normalities turn out to lustily back the " best old team in Texas " every game. That is why the boys fight so hard to main- tain the honor of the Green and White. One hundred thirty-six St. Clair, Coach Mr. St. Clair is one of the best basketball coaches in the South. Denton has been introduced to the world since he adopted the Normal as the recipient of his good offices. The two quintets of ' 22 and ' 2?i are proof of his talent to tutor cagers. He gets good results because he knows the game from the players ' standpoint and because he has the love and respect of all the boys. With Mr. Saint at the helm, we care not for ill winds. One hundred thirty-seven to =1 One hundred Ihirly-eight preliminary easion With the largest turn out in the history of the Normal, the basket- ball season was off to a flying start, when the practice was called in the early part of December, 1922. Prospects looked bright when fi e veterans of the 1922 team answered the call. In a few days Coach St. Clair had picked his squad and started them on the road to another brilliant season. Conscientious observance of training rules, earnest drilling in the essentials of the game, and expert coaching soon moulded a group of individuals into a smoothly working unit. As two teams nearly equal in strength were out, they were afforded practical experience by being matched daily. These continual " under fire " conditions developed the calm easy attitude that is so characteristic of our boys in real action. The first engagement was an unofficial one with Krum. Denton won by a score so large that it has been forgotten. Next, an inde- pendent squad from St. Jo were taken on at the Normal gym. The game was very rough and threatened at times to degenerate into a gang fight. But the Eagles displayed their ability to thrive under adverse conditions by defeating them by a large score. It was now evident that the Normal quintet would equal or surpass that of ' 22. The Gym. One hundred thirty-nine McXlister, Captain " Big Dan " did duty as captain of the Eagles this year. His cool, level head fits him wonderfully for this position. McAlister is an unbeatable guard, who is always under the ball. Possessed of an uncanny faculty for judging just what will be his opponent ' s ne.xt move, he seldom fails to muss up the enemy ' s passes. A smooth player himself, Dan smiles when the " rough stuff starts. " One hundred forty Ferryman, Captain-elect " Fight ' em; at all times tight ' em. " That is Snag. He sees to it that the enemy ' s plans " gang aft agley. " Intercepting passes and side-tracking goalward bound balls are his big pas- times. No one has ever seen Ferryman loaf. On the defensive he is a strong reason why the visitors cannot score. Also that running overhead toss of his has spelled iitory in several neck and neck affairs. The boys showed wisdom in choosing him as captain for ne. t year ' s squad. He will be successful, we know, for he is a good leader, has lots of experience behind him, and always puts his heart into his work. One hundred forty-one DENTON NORMAL 26, T. C. U. 10 THE season opened with two difficult engagements at Ft. Worth on January 11th and 12th. Here Coach St. Clair took on Texas Christian University ' s Horned Frogs in the initial T. I. A. A. game for the year. The team left Denton supposedly at a disad antage — playing on a strange court, away from home, and minus the services of the regular center. Much interest was manifested as to how the loss of Pinkerton would affect the strength of the club. The two defeats dealt out to McKnight ' s five were forceful e idcnce that the Eagles had not lost their wallop. The game on Thursday night was fast and hard fought. The Eagles had the Frogs outclassed in the first half, getting away for a 16 to 2 lead. The Frogs returned rushing in the last half and threatened the Normal ' s margin constantly. They played much better ball than in the first half, and only the good defensive work of the visiting team saved the day. DENTON NORMAL 33, T. C. U. 18 The second game with the Christians was a more spectacular affair. It was anyone ' s game for the first half, both teams fighting desperately and cleanly. This half ended with the Eagles in possession of the big end of a 14 to 11 score. After the intermission the lads from Denton made their appearance refreshed and alert and completely outclassed their opponents. During this period the Eagles made eight field goals, while they allowed T. C. U. only one. Such good results for the first two games put the Normalites in high spirits and more than e er back of their eager heroes. There was only one interpreta- tion of the dual victory — another pennant race successfully begun. West, Guard One hundred forly-two DENTON NORMAL 28, SOUTHWESTERN 19 ON January 15th the Eagles packed up and began an extended trip to South Texas. Mr. St. Clair carried ten men, all of them in good condition. The first stop was at Georgetown, where the Southwestern Uni- versity Pirates were waiting with an appropriate thirst for blood. The opening game was close and thrilling. The Denton aggrega- tion had the edge on their aggressive contestants, and, though they gathered only 10 points in the first half, controlled the field easily, allowing Southwestern but G. Singularly, Knight failed for the first time in two years to score. This, however, was no discredit to him as his excellent teamwork gave Edwards many opportunities for counting. In the last half the Pirates rallied. The first ten minutes saw the score 16 to 15 in favor of Denton. Then the Eagles put on speed and finished with a ninc-pnint lead. DENTON NORMAL 21, SOUTHWESTERN 9 The Eagles had a walk-away in the second game with the Pirates. They were in much better form than they were the night before and played a faster game. The result was never in doubt from the beginning of the game, and for the last few minutes Mr. St. Clair ordered his five to play for time, thus saving their energy ' for the Bob Cats, who were in readiness for the conflict further south. Knight came back in this game and demonstrated to the world, by ringing five field goals, that he had not lost his basket eye. Hardigree, Forward One hiDidred forly-tliree DENTON NORMAL 24, SAN MARCOS IS THE Eagles stepped into the Denton Normal ' s worst rival when they alit in San Marcos on Friday, January 19th. The teams fostered by the San Marcos Normal always make our boys extend themselves. The affair Friday night left unscathed the Cats ' reputation for being stiff losers. Coach St. Clair ' s basketballers won one of the hardest games of the season by a none too substantial margin. Opening with a bang, the game rocked evenly for the first half. Fast and snappy work characterized the entire game, but the opposing team displayed perhaps a larger share than the Eagles during the first twenty minutes. At the end of this time they were two points in the lead. In the last half the Eagles came back imbued with new strength and energy, plus a determination not to lose. They impeded the Cats ' goalward march, at the same time coming out of the hole little by little. Every minute was filled with desperate action by both clubs. Despite heroic struggling on San Marcos ' part, the Eagles held their own and built up a six-point lead, which was maintained till the end. MuKLEY, Gnard DENTON NORMAL 24, SAN MARCOS 18 The second game with San Marcos was a replica of that of the previous night. The Bob Cats were encouraged by the conservative score of the first game and held fond visions of taking the last one. The whole time was full of excite- ment. The play was equally as fast as the night before. San Marcos again held sway over the field in the first half. Visions of a victory over the invincible Eagles spurred them on to valiant defense and effective aggres- sion. They boasted a one-point superior- ity at the close of the first half. Again, as before, the Eagles came back and pulled out of the hole. The results of the go were the same as in Friday ' s game. One liMtdred forty-four DENTON NORMAL 28, CANYON NORMAL 27 THE campaign on foreign soil ended with the San Marcos triumphs, l p to this time the Eagles had not been seen in action en the home court except in the minor skirmish with St. Jo. The fans, how- ever, were bolstered up in their patient wait to see the team perform by the fact that the remaining six conference games, as well as the Tulsa and the Stickle games, were to be in Denton. The first game with Canyon, on January 24, was hard on weak hearts. The trouble tub sprang a leak in the get-away. A Buffalo turned one loose a mile from home, and it wobbled in. After that, rabbit feet dangled from every Westerner ' s neck. Dazzling passing dumfounded the boys in green, while something new was seen in the pivoting dodge. Denton ' s best efforts proved futile against the calm, goalward march of the Buffaloes. In fact they were so ineffective that, at the end of the first half, the home team was burdened with the frail section of a 22-to-9 count. The Eagle ' s fortunate habit of doing the second half better than the first became useful on this occasion. With Murley replacing West, the Buffaloes ' victory-bound rush came to a grinding halt. The whole Eagle team fought a desperate, blocking fight, simultaneously taking more risks at long ones and thereby gaining tally after tally. The climax came near the end when Knight hooked one that placed the Green and White a point to the good. Conditions were thus when the whistle blew. DENTON NORMAL 20, CANYON NORMAL 22 After winning seventeen consecutive T. L A. A. games, on January 25, the Normal lost by two points to the Can- yon Buffaloes. It was anybody ' s game till the time was up. Getting loose early in the fray gave Canyon a 17-to-lO margin at the rest period. Clean, fast playing predominated on both sides. The Eagles seemed to be a bit off form, while the Buffaloes whooped it up as never before. Airtight guarding made shooting from midfield popular. The visitors again worked their brilliant pass system and broke into the Eagles ' attempts repeatedly. Knight, Forward 10 One huitdred forty-five In the last half the thrills were thick. Creeping up slowly and strenuously, the Eagles nosed their way forward till Fate seemed kind. Then they dropped behind two points and could not rally — the famous champions were beaten. DENTON NORMAL 21, AUSTIN COLLEGE 12 On February 2nd the Eagles made easy work of the Austin College Kangaroos, when they won the opening tilt of a two-game series. Only for the first few minutes of play was there anything close about the contest, and during the last half the home team stalled for time. Several times in the last period, when the Kangaroos used their five-man defense, an Eagle stood in the far corner and waited until the visitors were forced to go in and break it up or meekly sub- mit to time ' s defeating them. Knight ' s display of endurance in rushing the enemy was the only unusual feature of the game. DENTON NORMAL 28, AUSTIN COLLEGE 13 The second game with Austin College was a surprise. Judging from the impotency displayed by the visitors on the previous night, opinion was rife that Saturday ' s game would develop into a friendly goal-shooting contest between the Eagles ' forwards. What really ensued was so different and astounding that the onlookers were dumb. The breaks all seemed to go against the home boys. Edwards had trouble in finding the loop on free throws, while the Kangaroos were lucky on every try. The first half ended indecisively, 8 all. Sherman ' s long-legged players clogged the local adding machine and rated a draw well into the second round. A shift of men by St. Clair apparently crippled the jinx, for the Eagles immediately broke away and had no difficulty in accumulat- ing a large lead. Edwards, Forward One hundred forty-six DENTON NORMAL 34, T. C. U. 14 The Texas Christian University Horned Frogs landed in Denton on February 6th with hope of revenge for the two defeats handed them early in the season. Their club was in fine shape. The first game was interesting on account of its closely contested first half. During this period the Frogs held the Eagles to a conservative figure and counted consistently themselves. However, in the last half their defense broke and the Normal piled up the count. DENTON NORMAL 27, T. C. U. 20 The Frogs gave a better account of themselves in the last game and gathered 20 points to the Normal ' s 27. Though confronted by the knowledge that they had a very slight chance to win over the Eagles, the Christians fought just as hard as ever before. Their pluck won every- one ' s admiration, and their clean sportsmanship enhanced the friendly rivalry of the two colleges. These two victories ended the Normal ' s conference schedule. Only one blot marred their record — the glorious triumph enjoyed by Canyon. The Famous Eagles had again won the T. L A. A. championship. DENTON NORMAL 25, TULSA 21 The two games with Tulsa ' s five on February 13th and 14th had been long looked forward to by fans all over this section of the country as the best of the year. The team from the neighbor state beat the Nor- mal one game last year, and the class of basketball exhibited then created an enthusiastic rivalry between the two schools such as is seldom seen except in the case of very large universities . The first game was such as occurs only in fiction. Both teams " had everything " and the breaks were fifty-fifty. Tulsa used their bouncing pass effectively and got through the Eagles ' defense for the first half, at the end of which the outlook was gloomy for the Normal, 10 to 17. On the resumption of hostilities, the general aspect gradually changed. The difference in standing lessened slowly till a lucky shot put the Eagles on top. There is absolutely no record of such an explosion of spontaneous applause as then burst forth. This enthusiasm was short lived, however, for a free throw evened the count again for Tulsa. The last few seconds of play failed to break the tie of 21 to 21. One hundred forty-seven An agreement was made to play an extra five minutes, and the battle began again. The Eagles sunk their talons in four additional points and sailed off with the laurels. DENTON NORMAL 19, TULSA 14 Very unlike that of the night before, the last game with the Okla- homa team was devoid of spectacular features. Play was less smooth, and a temper was lost occasionally. The Eagles commanded the field throughout the engagement. The visitors ' system of passing did not work so well as before, because Mr. St. Clair had given adequate instructions to his men. The Eagles ran up the score early in the last and then played for time. The Tulsa quintet gained speed and climbed within striking distance, but the period was too near over. DENTON NORMAL 23, STICKLE 29 The Stickle Lumber Company beat the Normal in the last game played this season. It was a repetition of what the same team did to the Eagles last year at the A. A. U. meet in Dallas. Then the Pros were under the name of CuUem and Boren. The Eagles were badly off in this contest and lacked the fight they put into the games with college clubs. In fact, the professional atmos- phere stifled even the enthusiasm of the rooters. The visiting athletes were fast and good players. No doubt, though, if the home five had put as much into the match as they did against Tulsa, they would have won easily. One hundred forty-eight lasffaall One hundred foriy-nine Jforetoorb This was the first year for the Green and White in the T. I. A. A. Much interest has always been shown in every branch of athletics at the Normal, and now that we had entered the association, everyone anxiously watched the development of the team. When the first call for practice was issued by Coach St. Clair, about twenty-five men reported. Prospects for a team were good, but for the fact that most of the men were new and inexperienced. After several weeks of hard work, St. Clair ' s efforts began to bear fruit, and the team played some interesting games. This discussion of baseball would be incomplete without mention of the ineligible team, which was composed of some of the strongest men in College baseball. Their record, a loss of one game out of twelve, speaks for itself. Otie hundred fifty I. West, Captuin Irvan West came to the Normal from Hamilton High School and has played on the college team for two seasons. His skill at running bases has not been excelled and has brought grief to many pitchers. Besides rating high as a fielder and base runner, " Puss " ran his batting average above any of his comrades. He was elected captain for the coming season by the squad as some compensation for his untiring work on the field. One hundred fifty-one oj cq One hundred fifty-two " Coop " participated in every game of the season as a catcher, and his work was of that high order of consistency which we have learned to associate with the name " Bill. " His pep and cheerfulness were good for the team, and his sports- manship was not surpassed. Cooper, Catcher When Coach St. Clair was looking for a third baseman, he found the stuff in one " L ' seless " Knight. Knight held down that hot corner with the ability of a veteran. It is unnecessary to say that he was one of the strongholds of the team. He will be back again next year. Knight, Third Base Frank, the " kid player, " as he was commonly called, was one of our most capable infielders. Although nothing but a youth, he played a good game and holds great promise for the future. He will be back to make some one fight for an infield position next season. T.WLOK, Sccnnd Base One huiuhed fiftv-lhree " Mac " was the official sun fielder of our squad, and tramped every inch of territory necessary to bring ' em down. His good work on the field and his tendency to mix won him a place among his fellows not to be lost. He will be " on the job " again next year. jMcAlisteh, Center Field Adams was lacking in nothing when it came his turn to catch. His arm was at its best, as w ill be attested by those unfortunate athletes who attempted to beat that peg to second. He will not be with us next vear. -i!i Adams, Catcher As a first baseman and fielder, Tampke was hard to beat. He has made a host of friends, for he is always a courteous gentleman, a good student, and a true sportsman on the athletic field. T.SMPKE, First Base One hundred fifty-four At first base, he displayed fielding ability of the highest order. His fierce hitting started many a batting rally which resulted in an Eagle victory, for he could always be relied upon in a " pinch. " With his fighting spirit and ever-present pep, he kept the team on its toes continually. He will camp on the first mound again next year. POLL. N, Firsl Base Hansard was one of our three-letter men, and equally great in any of the three sports. His batting average was high, but no higher than his field work. All pitchers feared his wicked swing, and, as a result, they were glad to dispose of him by letting him get to first. He will make a fight for his old post again next year. Hansard, Cenler Field It took some time for Edwards to get the kinks out of that left arm, but when it was straightened out he began to turn in a number of well deserved victories. His chief assets were his control and headwork, the attributes that make for successful pitching. He will be here again next year to demonstrate. I 1 Edw. kds, Fitclier One hiitidred fifty-five Starling is another man to make the team in his freshman year. Mr. St. Clair declared he needed more pitchers, where- upon Starling proceeded to let " Saint " know where a good twirler could be found. He grew more and more effective as the season progressed. Starlinx., Pitcher " Teddie " earned the left field berth early in the season by crack all-round playing. He was a clever fielder, his speed enabling him to make catches that appeared impossible. He was also a timely batter, finishing the season with an average of above .300. • f SiZEMORE, Lejl Field k U ' -»• ■• ¥ Oliver, who alternated with Tampke and Sizemore in left field, was a clever outfielder, but gained especial attention with his extremely short bat and his pep on the coaching line. He was always dangerous in the field and at bat. H .SI$l: . 1 - ' Olivek, Left Field ■ One hundred fifty-six When the call for baseball practice was made, " Red " came out to aid us in the fights. He started as pitcher, but later in the season he was shifted to center field. Here he per- formed creditably, as he did in pitching. We regret that his place next year will have to be filled by another man. POLLAN, Center Field BUCK GOODE " Buck " was one of the star pitchers of the squad last year. His fast curve and excellent control baffled all opposing teams. Goode ' s pitching ability is surpassed only by his stock of what is known as baseball brains. Batters occasionally make hits olT his delivery, but they find it exceedingly hard to score runs. REVIEW OF THE SEASON OF 1922 While the team of 1922 cannot boast of many victories they can point with pleasure to the closeness of the games. Considering that most of the men were new and inexperienced, we should not regret the outcome of the season. DENTON NORMAL 3, T. C. U. 26 The Eagles lighted in Ft. Worth for their first game of the season. For seven innings the Horned Frogs pounded the Eagle moundsmen at will. Several expressed their opinion as to what the score would have been if nine innings had been played; some seemed to think the Christians would have scored several more runs, but others put up the plea that they were all run down and would have made but a few more. DENTON NORMAL 3, T. C. U. 16 After one week had passed the Frogs came over to repeat the same trick on our own diamond. One consolation the Normal had after playing these games: T. C. U. had given the Normal track men some valuable training which would aid them in getting revenge later on in track events. Although we lost this game, we had impro ' ed somewhat since our former game. One hundred fifty-seven DENTON NORMAL 6-2, COMMERCE 5-9 The Normal managed to make an even break in the next two games with Commerce. The first game was fiercely contested, and was probably the most thrilling one that has been seen on the Normal diamond in several seasons. At the end of the ninth inning the score was tied, 4 and 4. But the end of the eleventh inning found the Normal in the lead 6 to 5. The second game did not have the thrill of the first one, as Commerce came back strong and got revenge. DENTON NORMAL 1-2, SAN MARCOS 10-11 San Marcos, our old rival, next came up to get revenge for basketball defeats. The Normal felt the force of their south paw in the first game, getting only a few hits. In the second game the Normal did somewhat better, but was still unable to cope with the boys from South Texas. Thus we had to be content with two defeats. DENTON NORMAL 3-8, HOWARD PAYNE 5-7 The first of the games with Howard Payne was one of the best staged on the local diamond. The visitors made the two winning runs in the twelfth, after the two teams had battled for eleven innings. The final score was 5 to 3. The Eagles came back strong in the second game and took revenge by a score of 8 to 7. DENTON NORMAL 0-4, COMMERCE 4-5 The Eagles closed their season in two hard fought games with Commerce, at Commerce. Although the Normal lost both games, they gave a much better account of themselves in the second game. One hundred fifty-eight One hundred fifty-nine jToretoorb Track has held but an unimportant place in Normal sports in the past. In fact, the first team worthy of mention was in 1921. Though this team did not make an exceptional record, it was a good beginning for the famous 1922 squad. Prior to 1922 no meet had ever been held at the Normal field. In this year, when the Teachers became Eagles and got promoted to the T. I. A. A., Mr. Fonts developed a group of trackmen who put Denton ' s name on the honor roll. The credit for this unusual accomplishment is due to Coach Fonts, who skillfully and patiently encouraged his prospective team, and to the brave-hearted boys who so faithfully labored in order to fit them- selves to defend their college ' s honor. One hundred sixty V. Hansard, Captain " Dutch " captained the track champions in 1922. That he proved worthy as leader of the cinder path squad is evident in that he was re-elected to the same position for the promising team of 1923. He is one of the most able athletes the Normal has in the distance events, and his faithful training is an in- spiration to aspiring track men. His grit to " stay in there ' " w hen nothing is left to stay on has won and will win many a race for him. l)nf hundred sixty-one 11 CO J o One hundred sixly-two t sa K. C. Wi. Mtti This was not only the first meet of the season, but it was the first meet of its kind ever held at the Normal. It was the Normal- ites ' debut into Track. And the team which Coach Fouts entered did its share in putting the Normal on the athletic map, winning over T. C. U. of Ft. Worth by about 20 points. The superiority of the Normal was espe- cially noticeable in most of the events. I. West won the 100-yd. dash, the 220-yd. dash, and the220-yd. low hurdles. J. Hansard won the 440- yd.dash. Brown won the pole vault. Pinkerton West broke the state record in the javelin throw by a few feet, but a better mark made the same day by San Marcos Normal overshadowed the fact. So formidable did the Eagle relay team seem that their opponents forfeited the race without an effort. T. C. U. was very strong in some events, especially in the mile and the half mile. Per- haps the most brilliant performer of the day was Weimes of the Christians. He won the mile and the half mile, in both of which he holds the state record. However, Frank Hansard won a close second. T. C. U. also won the 120-yd. high hurdle, the high jump, the broad jump, the shot-put, and the discus throw. Hansaki) One hundred sixty-three Mevers . il. Wi. Mttt The Eagles were defeated by the Southern Methodist University track team in a dual meet at Dallas on Saturday afternoon, April 29th. In spite of the fact that the track was wet and " ery hea y, excellent time was made in several of the events, especially in the mile and in the half mile, both of which were won by Frank Hansard. The Mustangs finished with a total of 56 points. The Normal was only three points behind, having a total of 53. The meet was hotly contested throughout, and never did either side gain a substantial ad antage over the other. Irvan West of the Eagles was the high point man of the meet, winning three first places, which gave him fifteen points. Perhaps his best race was the 22U-yard dash, in which he beat Lincoln of S. M. V., who had not been passed in the last two years. Frank Hansard tied with Brooks of S. M. U. for third place in individual points, each being credited with two first places. Hansard ran the mile in 4:49 and the half mile in 2:09, which was exceptionally fast considering the wet track. The mile relay was almost a farce. The Normal team finished nearly sixty yards in the lead, and of the four runners only one failed to beat the S. M. U. man against whom he was pitted. I- Noah Ojie hundred sixty-four nr. 3. . , ileet The Denton Normal track team won the annual Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association track meet which was held at Texas Christian University on Friday, May 5, 1922, with a grand total of 3014 points. T. C. U. took second place with 26 points. This was the second T. I. A. A. chamjiionship that the Eagles had won since their admittance to the Association in January of that ear. Little heard of before she gained entrance to senior college athletics, the N. T. S. N. C, by making such an illustrious record in such a short time, made sport fans all over the state " sit up and take notice. Thus these victories lent prestige to the Normal greater than that of which many Cooper colleges of years of standing can boast. Tabor of Simmons College was high point man in the meet, making a total of 12 points. He won two first places and one third. West of the Eagles was second with one fiist, one second, one thiid, and one fourth place, making a total of 11 points. Four T. I. A. A. records were broken during the meet. The most spectacular feat was that in which the Eagle relay team broke the state record by doing the mile in 3 minutes 35 2 .5 seconds. The former record was held by A. M. College and Texas University, both of which teams did the relay in 3 minutes 36 seconds. V 8 ■ ' % ' Knight Frank Hansard, running against Weimes, the T. C. U. man who holds the record in both the mile and the half mile, was second only to that jihenom- enal runner. One of the most startling events of the meet was the high jump, in which Parker of T. C. U., was hard pressed by Bill Meyers of the Eagles. Me ers jumped five inches higher than he e ' er did before, and Parker was able to win only after the bar had been raised to 5 feet, 10 4 inches. One liuiidred sixty-five -.M Hansaku Kmohi CiK.il ' hK Wtsl With men like Cooper, Hansard, Knight, and West running the relay race, Denton Normal, pre- sented an unbeatable combination for the 1922 season. They easily won in all the meets, and in the T. I. A. A. meet they broke the state record by making the mile in 3 minutes 35 2 5 seconds. It was largely the preliminary season training gained by these men under Coach Fonts that made the Eagles such formidable opponents. The men worked hard and all due credit should be given them. Fours, Coach One hundred sixty-six nmmB Atlflrttrs One hundred sixty-seven Beulah a. Harriss Coacli Virginia Broadfoot Coach Pearl Miller Sludenl Manager Wm tx( tljleticsi Much interest has been disishu-ed in girls ' athletics of many kinds this year. During the fall term, the girls manifested so much enthusiasm over soccer that Miss Harriss picked two teams, which met in a battle royal. The captains were Pearl West and Margie W ' hittington. When the time agreed upon for playing had passed, neither side was victorious. In the winter term field hockey and basketball were the chief attrac- tion. No intercollegiate games were held in field hockey, as other colleges do not play. In the spring all sorts of hidden talent was discovered in baseball workouts. In fact, baseball is prol)al)l - the most popular game of the year. On April 28th the fiist track meet for girls will be held at T. W. C, Ft. Worth. This is to be carried out according to the rules prescribed by the Women ' s Intercollegiate Athletic Association, and the winning college will be awarded Association honors. Our basketball team won the Association championship, and the prospect is that our girls will win the track meet also. Our college stands foremost among Texas Colleges in its girls ' athletics, and, therefore, all other colleges look to us for leadership. May each year see some definite step toward success. One hiiinlrcd sixty-eight Beulah a. Harriss, Coach Miss Harriss is coach of basketball, soccer, field hockey, and baseball. Her specialty is basketball, in which she is a coach unsurpassed in all the Southwest; she has been with us nine years and has coached many successful basketball teams. She always manages to transmit her firm, enthusiastic pugnacity to the team. Her greatest work, however, is not in this, but in the influence that her life has upon the students as a whole. She is ever the student ' s friend and by her example in daily living is an inspiration to all those with whom she comes in contact. One hundred sixty-nine iJtiu 1-1 Mfj. One hundred seventy Virginia Bboadfoot, Coach Miss Broadfoot is the general manager of class basketball and the coach of the track team. She comes to us from Texas University, where she won honors for her athletic ability. " Failure " is an obsolete word in Miss Broadfoot ' s vocabulary. She has enthusiasm enough to try anything, and originality and determination enough to carry it out. It is these qualities chiefly that make her an asset to the college students, boys and girls alike, and finds her ever ready to carry on any beneficial activity. Her track team, having such a coach, cannot but be successful, whether they win or lose. One hundred seventy-one Violet Jacobs, Captain Violet Jacobs came to the College from Valley Mills in 1921. She held the position of guard during that year, and because of her consistent playing the honor of the captaincy of the 1923 squad was bestowed upon her. The year has proved a banner one for Violet both as to her playing and as to her leading of the team through the season with only one defeat. One hundred seventy-two DENTON NORMAL 31, T. W. C. 15 The Normal Girls ' basketball team proved their worthiness to fight under the Eagle banner on an equality with our famous St. Clair team when the - defeated Texas Women ' s College in an extremely fast game on ihe enemy ' s court. From the first toss the Eagles showed superior ability in both teamwork and goal shooting, making four points in the first minute of play. However, the victory was not an easy one. as T. W. C. displayed good teamwork and fought ha rd from the first to the last whistle. It would be hard to name a star for the Eagles, for each girl played her position to the best interest of the team. Inmon shot most of the goals for the Normalites, but her team mate, Laramore, ga e her every advantage, and they displayed wonderful teamwork. Owens and Jacob played a steady game at center, Owens tipping and Jacob receiving every time the ball went up in center. Moreover, West and Holland certainly were on their job as guards. Their strong defensive added materially to the victory. The Normal machinery was just too much forT. W. C. Holland, Guard T DENTON NORMAL 9, S. M. U. 8 The first opportunity the Normal rooters had to see the team in action was in the game with S. M. U., which was slow, rough, and rather uninteresting, and was characterized by man y fouls. Only three field goals were made, the rest of the score being made by free throws. However, our girls put up a good fight from first to last and we won by a margin of one point. Pearl West did some wonderful playing in this game, covering S. M. LT. ' s invincible forward, Pearl Campbell, in an entirely satisfactory way. The Southern Methodist University does not be- long to the W. L A. A.; so this game had no bearing on our championship. Mills, Guard One hundred sevetitv-three ft J7 DENTON NORMAL 21, T. W " . C. 21 A week later the Eagles met the T. W. C. team and tied the score in a hard-fought game in the Normal gym. The first half ended with a 10 to 17 score in favor of T. W. C. Our girls pla ed a scattered, haphazard, and individual game in the first half, allowing T. W. C. ' s star forward, Minn, to run up the score. The Normal forwards, Inmon and Whittington, were unable to score over their guards. f k In the last half the Eagles came back with the determi- L nation to win. With Holland substituting for West at guard, and Laramore substituting for Whittington at K forward, the team played a better game. The most spec- ■ tacular playing was done by Laramore, who made six H points in the first sixty seconds of her playing. Inmon ran ■ her a close second and made scoring possible by sacrificing. Holland, at guard, held Minn to two field goals in the last half, and Mills ' opponent made only four points in the whole game. The centers played a steady game throughout both halves. With Owens controlling the ball in the toss up, and Jacob passing to the forwards, we tied a score that looked uncertain for a while. 4 Owens, Center DENTON NORMAL 34, SIMMONS 8 The Simmons sextet were our next victims. The locals had the visitors outclassed from the time the whistle blew until the end of the game. Owens tapped the ball each time, in spite of the fact that her opponent was the taller by several inches. Jacob was largely instrumental in getting the ball to the forwards, who scored rapidly, running up nineteen points in the first half, while the brilliant work of our guards, Holland and Mills, kept the visitors from locating the basket until the second half. Few fouls were made, only se en in all, six techni- cals and one personal. Pearl West, guard for the last three years, was shifted to forward and made Inmon a fast teammate. The teamwork of these forwards was beyond their guards. It was simply a case of too much Eagles. West, Forward One hundred sevcniy-four DENTON NORMAL 38, SIMMONS 7 The game the next afternoon opened with the visitors playing better ball than on the preceding night. They fought hard but could not keep up with the fast Eagle team. Denton was unable to score in the first five minutes. The centers did excellent work in getting the ball to the forwards, but their opponents were on the alert and the shots at the goal went wild. The forwards rallied after the first few minutes and rang them thick and fast, running up fifteen points to Simmons ' two. Inmon shot most of the goals, and her teammate. West, did excellent work in passing the ball to her. If Simmons ' guards were on the alert, no less were ours. Kibler and Holland allowed the opponents to make only three field goals, two of these counting only one point each because the forwards had to shoot over their heads. The game was so one-sided as to be uninteresting, and the crowds on the sidelines frequently called for subs, hoping that thereby the game would be closer. Inmo.v, Forward VVhittington, Forward DENTON NORMAL 15, SAN MARSCOS 19 The Eagle sextet met their only defeat of the season at the hands of the fast San Marcos team in a rough game on the home court. Of the many fouls, San Marcos drew ten and the Normal four. Because of a mistake on the part of the scorekeeper, the San Marcos side center was allowed to play in the game after making five personal fouls. The Eagles played good ball, but they were not in their best form. The forwards were unable to locate the ring because their guards were fast and played with such a " never-give-up " spirit that they were able to keep up with West and Inmon. But if the San Marcos guards stood out in the game, so did ours. Mabel Holland guarded Lilly Bently, the opponents ' star forward, and held her to four goals in the first half and one in the second half, and did this without making a foul herself. Mills also did good work at guard and blocked many throws for goal. One hundred sevenly-five DENTON NORMAL 13, SAN MARCOS 12 The next night the Normal girls came back in fine form with the old fighting spirit running high. They just had to win. The game was e ' en rougher than the one the night before, twenty-two fouls being called in all, fourteen on San Marcos and eight on Denton. Before the end of the first half the San Marcos side center was put out with five fo uls, three of them personals. There was not a star on our team, as every girl played her position to the best interest of all. Whittington and Inmon did splendid work, scoring in spite of the speedy San Marcos guards. " Pop " and " Star " played their usual steady game at center and their accurate passing to the forwards was an important factor in the winning of the game. West helped Holland guard, and Sans Marco declared that the two were the strongest guards they had met this season. Holland guarded San Marcos ' star forward so closely that she made no goals in the first half and only four in the last half. DENTON NORMAL 20, COMMERCE 7 Most of our games were played on home grounds where the Normal " Pep " could get in its word, but the latt game of the season was played with Commerce on her own court. Even this did not change the result. The game was fast and hard fought from the beginning to the end. Commerce did her best and played a clean game, but could not win o er the speed and greater experience of the Denton girls. There was never any doubt as to the out- come. The Normal led the scoring from the start. During the first half the murder was at its height. It was the same old story: the ball up in center, Jacob to Whittington or Inmon, and a goal as the result. This continued until the merciful whistle of the referee cut the massacre short at the end of the first half. Commerce played better ball the last half of the game. Their guards did especially good work, staying with our forwards so closely that most of the goals had to be thrown over the head and counted only one point. But on the other end of the court West and Holland were holding the opponents, scoring down to the mininuim. The whole game can be summed up in a few words: The Normal girls out-passed, out-fought, and generally out-played Commerce. However, it was not the work of any one person that won the victor , but the skill of a wonderful fighting machine.

Thus it includes five distinct groups: the Student Publications Council, the Campus Chat Staff, the Yucca StafT, the Avesta Staff, and the business managers. It holds several meetings, both business and social, during the year and has an annual banquet as one of the events of the spring commence- ment. The Student Publications Council was established in 1916. It is composed of the members of the Faculty Committee on Student Publications, the editor of the Ciimpus dial, the editor of the Yucca, and the business m.mager, as ex officio members, and five other student members who are recommended by the faculty committee and appointed by the President of the College. These latter are chosen because of their active interest in student affairs generally and in student publications especialh ' , their dependableness and their judgment. The work of the Council is to solve such problems as confront the publications from time to time. One of the most interesting decisions which they have ever made was that which substituted the present Campus Chat and the Avesta for the old monthly Journal. The Council also selects the editor and the associate editors of the Campus Chat, while its student members fill all vacancies which may occur on the Yucca Staff, and the faculty members choose the staff for the Avesta. Another regular duty of the Council is the arranging and holding of the election of the Yucca staff each spring. The Campus Chat staff edits the weekly newspaper of the college, and the Yucca staff has charge of the publication of the year book. The business manager and the assistant business manager, who are chosen by the faculty committee, are responsible for all business trans- actions in connection with publications. The Avesta, begun at the same time as the Campus Chat, is a quarterly literary magazine. It offers encouragement for the student with some literary ability to exercise his talents, as other activities offer opportunities to the student with other special gifts. In it are published the best written productions of any type composed by students during the year. Such a literary magazine is published by most standard colleges and lends an intellectual tone to student life. While prices were so high during the late war it was necessary to give up the Avesta, which has not yet been restored. However, the Council trusts that the Avesta may again join the publications family next year: One hundred seventy-nine W )t Campus; Cfjat The ). Mahler, Editor It was in the fall of 191(5 that the Student Publications Council met in the office of Mr. Masters to discuss the advisability of abandoning the old monthly Journal and substituting for it a weeklv newspaper and a quarterK- literary magazine. At that time the school had grown to be a large institution with many activities of general interest and sufficient in news value to supply several columns of reading matter per week. So, as a result of the meeting, it was announced to the College at large that a weekly newspaper would be published and a title for the same was solicited. The naming of this new and important member of the college publication family was a hazardous and intricate task. A box was placed in the main entrance of the Administration Building and students were requested to place in it their selections for a name. On a certain Monday night the committee met and the box was opened. What a various assortment of titles met their eyes! No new baby ever had more names suggested by adoring relatives than had this infant paper. The animal, mineral, and vegetable kingdoms had been ransacked and there was a fair representation from each. Among these were such significant titles as " The Stinging Lizard, " " The Tree Toad, " " The Coyote. " " The Roueji Rider, " " The Meteor, " " The Antelope. " Not a few loyal fellows had sought to perpetuate the name of their home-town papers by suggesting " The Herald. " " The Weekly News, " " The Clarion. " " The Beacon, " or some other original and clever name. Finally, after a long and somewhat warm debate, the name " Campus Chat " was chosen as the one most suitable, and the new sheet was duly christened. The first issue of the " Campus Chat " was published on December 8, 1916. It was a four-page, five-column paper in large print, and became almost imme- diately an integral part of the institution. That was six years ago. The infant paper has, like most sturdy infants, grown enormously during its first six years. It is now a six-column, four-page paper in small type, and it has on a few special occasions achieved eight pages of reading matter . During the six years it is estimated that there have been 300,000 copies of the Campus Chat printed. In these copies many events of college life that have gladdened the hearts of their readers have been mirrored — and a few that have saddened them; for in a college there can be no clement, no organization that more truly reflects every side of college life with its ups and dows, its defeats and its victories, than the college paper. One tiundred eighty i)t 5ucca W " . A. Rdss, Editor The Y ucca, published Ijy the students of the North Texas State Normal College, is the most treasured of the publications of the College. On its pages can be found a summary of the most note- vorth - e ent of each successi -e college ' ear. The de elf)|iment of the Yucca from the small Cottontail of 19()() into the complex annual that today represents our college is interesting from more than one viewpoint. The ideals that prompted the Staff of ' 06 to issue the Cottontail have guided the succeeding editors in their attemiit to give to other colleges and the world at large some information respecting the students and their various acti •ities, although the methods used b - each have been vastly different. Few are the olumes that have not included new and original ideas, and fewer are those that have not in some manner been improvements o er their predecessors. Certainh ' the ' 06 issue differs grealK " in content from the present day Yucca. Through the former, only a ' ery few pictures are to be found; one of the president, grouji pictures of the four classes of that time, six of organizations. one of the two debaters, two of women athletics, and a few cartoons. From this initial issue of one hundred fourteen pages has grown the present Yucca, which stands today as one of the most complete annuals among schools of its rank. In keejiing with the rapid growth of the College and the corresponding attempt to include all the happenings of the collegiate ear, this year ' s issue is the largest attempted, although it has been found necessary to limit some of the depart- ments because of a lack of money and space. The task of publishing the book is shouldered 1) ' a manager appointed by the Faculty Committee on Student ' s Publications and an editorial staff elected by the student liod ' . As in the case of the average annual, the Yucca ' s most pleasing feature is the calling back those days we hold dear and the making them live anew. Therein lies the fundamental purpose of the Yucca, the mirroring of those moments which have made the collegiate year.

The importance of this day needs no comment, for upon the decision of this occasion hinges the success or failure of our -ear book, the most permanent record of our college life. Two strong tickets were nominated, the Lee ticket and the Student ticket. They were as follows: Lees Student-Party Editor-in-Chief . . James A. McDox.a.ld C. A. D.avis Associate Editor . . . Inez Jones Essie Ball Athletic Editor . D. A. Edwards Ulys Knight Organization Editor . . Jack London Harry Pinkerto.n Class Editor Bess Herron Lorine Willi. ms College Life Editor . . Gladys Peeler Welt.a. Angel Facts and Follies . . Helen Embersox Robert Scott Art Editor .... Louise Smith Louise Smith A great deal of part - spirit was manifested from the ery Iseginning, and efifective cartoons were generoush ' displayed by both parties throughout the campaign. Nor did the excitement die down until all votes were cast, and announcement was made of the election of the following: C. A. Davis, Essie Ball, Ulys Knight, Harr ' Pinkerton, Lorine Williams, W elta Angel, Helen Emberson, and Louise Smith. C. A. Davis, W ' elta Angel, and Harry Pinkerton did not return to school in the fall. In their places Robert Tampke, Wilton Cook, and D. A. Edwards were elected. However, as a result of the point system, Robert Tampke was not eligible for the position and W. A. Ross was chosen in his stead. EASTER SERVICE A very impressive Easter ser " ice was presented to a large audience on Sunday afternoon. May 6th. The audience was made to feel the spirit of the occasion by a group of songs rendered by the Choral Club, which reached a fitting climax in singing Beethoven ' s " The Heavens Abound. " In an unusualK " charming manner Miss Ruth Parker read " The Terrible Meek, " a story centered around the crucifi.xion of Christ, written by Rann Kennedy. As a fitting conclusion to the program, Granier ' s " Hosanna " was effectively sung by Berta Mae Looney. Two humired twcnty-ime lit! . $. , at tfte College For two weeks the college stu- dents were like one big family pre- paring for distinguished guests — guests who had never before graced the threshold. From every corner of the camjjus the same echo rang: " When T. P. A. comes. " The atmosphere was full of enthusiasm, expectation, and inquisitiveness on the part of e -ery student. Nor did the interest cease when at last the expected day arrived. The college graciously fulfilled every requirement which the duty of a host demands. In chapel one felt as if he was caught in an immense whirl of excited persons from which he could not escape. The college band, just below the front windows of the auditorium, added to the excitement of the expectant body. So the visitors were received amid applause and music. Pat M. Neff, Govenwr of Texas. g , merriment was not confined to the chapel. If an aeroplane had passed over the campus the pilot would have thought that the college had turned all its side shows into one big circus. The tweh-e hundred students with their five hundred guests covered the whole of the campus south of the Administration Building. In groups the pupils of the various counties received their respective T. P. A. friends. After the reception ot the T. P. A. the physical education students, dressed in white, gave two dumb-bell drills. Then the Choral and Glee Clubs con- tributed several musical selections to the entertainment of the guests. But all the visitors ' enjoyment was not for the eyes and ears. They were ushered to the most shady spot east of the Manual Arts Building, where they found table arm chairs awaiting them. The chairs, however, were used for purposes other than those the students know. No examination sheets were passed to the editors, but instead a dainty maid dressed in white presented each guest with a plate heavily laden with " eats " which came from the Home Econom- ics Department. Three times the waiters replaced the plates and each time with a more attractive one. But when a storm comes, a calm soon follows. So the regular routine of work was resumed by thecollege after the guests departed for C. I. A. for their business session. Two hundred twenty-two TRAINING SCHOOL BANQUET A jollier time could not have been hoped for than the annual reception given by the Normal Training School Almuni for the seniors in the Obser ation Hall on Saturday, May 2()th. The class colors of purple and gold, iiuermingled with cosmos and larkspur, made the room very attractive. No banquet is complete without a clever master of ceremonies, and Jack Gale displayed unusual abilit - in that capacity, adding much to the success of the occasion. Preceding the program and social hour, the Alumni Association held a brief business session, and elected Miss Virginia Edwards president, and Miss Mary Tanner Secretary-Treasurer. " Blessings on thee, little man. Barefoot bo - with cheeks of tan, With tli - turned up pantaloons, And th - merry whistled tunes, " was the prevailing spirit as Mr. Floyd cleverly talked on " Reminiscences of Old Training School Days. " But every one became more serious when Miss Julia Smith played two piano solos. Then a violin solo by Robert Lomax, accompanied by his sister, Elizabeth, and a solo dance given by Marion Rowland ended the program for the evening. Helen Francis, as a stunt leader, kept the fun going by staging an original " gogerphy lesson, " the prize for which was won by a group led by Mr. Floyd. Since " all work and no eats makes Jack a lean boy, " the reception committee considerately served lots of ice cream and cake to the sixty guests. ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE CLASS OF 1922 Realizing that all work makes even seniors dull, Berta May Looney de- lightfully entertained the Class of 1922 with a bunco party. The first part of the evening was spent on the porch " gossiping " and telling stories, but soon the guests were ushered into a tastefully decorated reception room, and score cards were given. All dignity was lost in the interest of the game, and when the bell was tapped calling " time out, " Sophia Bauer was declared winner. Two hundred Iwenly-three It was time to go home, but not before tempting refreshments of ice cream and cake were ser ed to about twent -fi e guests. PIANO RECITAL The pupils of Miss Mary Anderson were presented in the recital cjn Mondays May 29th, furnishing one of the most enjoyable e ' enings of Commencement. The program was varied in nature, but each pupil displayed rare ability. Miss Anderson is certainh ' to be congratulated on her success, both as an artist and as a teacher. PRIMARY-KINDERGARTEX BREAKFAST The members of the Primary-Kindergarten Club, accompanied by Miss Harrington, reached " Hills and Hollows " just as the sun was peeping over the hills on May 30th. Pots and pans began to rattle, and soon everyone was enjoying a delicious breakfast of toast, coffee, and fruit. Then a short business session, in which Mrs. Simmons was elected president for 1922-23, was held. A sunrise breakfast without a romp and play is not complete. But nothing was lacking on this occasion; e " eryone placed until the warm sunshine started them back towards home. THE MOUND BUILDERS It is not always necessary to isit an Indian reservation to appreciate some of their fine qualities. Those who heard " The Mound Builders, " a cantata, the setting of which is purely Indian, enjoyed a musical treat not to be exceeded except in large cities. The voices blended in perfect harmony as a result of excellent direction and instruction of Miss Valerie Reeves, director of the College Chorus. Misses Vivian Simpson and Georgia Seibert were the soloists of the evening. Much credit is due Miss Vivian Huflfaker, who so capably accompanied at the piano. Two hundred Iweiily-Joiir ON MIDSUMMER ' S DAY Beautiful flowers and ferns made a fitting background for the daintily and beautifulh ' costumed diminutive actors in the presentation by the primary grades of the Training School of the operetta, " On Midsummer ' s Day. " The Fairy Queen, on Midsummer ' s Day, visits the garden of a little girl who loves but neglects it, and sends all the flowers to Fairyland until the little girl repents of her neglect and is taught by a Sunbonnet Babe to care for her garden. The operetta, which was under the direction of Miss Mayme Patrick of the Training School and Miss Mamie Smith of the Music Faculty, included in its cast some fifty or sixty children. The leading parts were those of Elis Vitz as Fairy Queen and Isabel Edwards as the child, and individual parts were taken by Nell Taylor, First Fairy; Mary Humphreys, Second Fairy; Peggy Hill, Third Fairy; Roland Schweer, First Brownie; Ruth Vitz, First Sunbeam Babe, and Virginia Craig, First Sunbeam. BILLETED Did you ever witness a big stage success in New York or London? Many are not granted this privilege, but an occasion equally as thrilling was enjoyed between the rising and the falling of the curtain beginning and ending the cleverly produced play, " Billeted, " by the Lillie Bruce Dramatic iccne from " Billeted " Two huiidred twenty-five Scene from " Billcled " Club during commencement week. The play was full of ckner situations and high class comedy, gi " ing the well chosen cast an opportunity to display rare stage ability. The cast follows in order of appearance: Mi Peter Tar. dine Colonel Preedy Rev. Liptrott Mr. McFarlane Betty Teradine Penelope Moon Miss Liptrott Mrs. Brace Rose (servant girl) Clint Wilks Willis Floyd Carl Young Alva Tompkins Helen Emberson Thyra Watson Ilene Compton Wi.NNiE D. McReynolds Velnla. Hill MARY ARDEN garden PARTY How do you like to go up in a swing, up in the sky so blue? The " Marys " think it the pleasantest thing e ' er a club can do. About fifty girls of the Mary Arden Club, who had remained over for Com- mencement, led by Miss Clark, found their way one pleasant evening into a spacious garden of flowers, trees, and swings at Miss Clark ' s home. Here they enjoyed several hours of fun in games and story-telling. Then delicious refresh- ments were served before it was time to go home. CLAS S DAY EXERCISES With interest and dignity, befitting any senior class, the program on Satur- day, June 3, 1922, was quite successful. " Co-Education, " sung by a quartet, the first number on the program, was followed by the " Class History " given by Sophia Mary Bauer. The " Proph- Tii ' o hundred t ' d ' enlv-six ecy " by Bertha Stockard inspired each student to hve faster so that he might have some of the fortunes awaiting him. Berta Mae Looney sang Scott ' s " Lullaby " in a pleasing manner, and Vernon M. Lemons displayed rare ability as an orator. The class " Will " was given by Lee F. Duggan. The most entertaining part of the program was " The Lamp-Lit Hour ' ' read by Miss Ruth Parker of the reading department. Her interpretations were strongly presented, and the continued applause bespoke the appreciation of the audience. As an impressive conclusion, the Key of Knowledge was presented by Robert H. Davis, a member of the senior class, to a representative of the Junior class. BACCALAUREATE SERVICE The Baccalaureate Service on Sunday, June 4, 1922, was ery impressive in its simplicity and in its spirit of reverence. The invocation, led by the Reverend J. Sam Barcus, was followed byShelly ' s " Faith, Hope, and Lov ' e, " sung by Mrs. B. B. Harriss, Miss Pearl Cross, and Miss Valeris Reeves. A most impressive sermon was delivered by Dr. J. W. Hunt, President of McMurray College, Abilene, Texas, after which the audience stood in prayer, led by the Reverend J. Sam Barcus. " Benedictus, " sung by an octette chosen from the faculty of the college, served as a fitting close to the delightful program. Slarl of March from Education Building Two hundred twenlv-seven Scene on Coiiiniencemeiit Dav COMMENCEMENT A more beautiful and impressi e cer emony could not ha ' e been wished for than that of Commencement Day, Monday, June 5, 1922. The Processional, formed in front of the Education Building and leading to the auditorium of the Administration Building, was headed ijy the Senior Class in caps and gowns, and the sophomore students who were obtaining permanent certificates followed. The faculty and the special guests, closing the processional, took their places on the platform. After the invocation by the Reverend S. J. Mathieson, Misses Virginia Broadfoot and Pearl Cross sang " Barcarolle " from " The Tales of Hoffman. " The Honorable R. M. Chitwood of Sweetwater, Texas, inspired the candidates for degrees and the entire audience with his most interesting address. After the address, Dean E. D. Criddle awarded certificates to the various classes, and the degrees were conferred by President W. H. Bruce. EVELYN SCOTNEY The first lyceum number of the session was a recital gi en liy E el " n Scotney, coloratura soprano; Maximilian Rose, iolinist, and Elvin Schmitt, pianist. Miss Scotney ' s light, high soprano voice was presented to the best ad " antage in the aria from " Mignon. " She responded very kindly to the encores. Honors were equally di ifled between her antl Mr. Rose, who pro -ed his ersatility in his handling of the quiet " Ave Maria " and of the tempestuous " Introduction and Tarantelle. " 7 " j£ ' () hundred tivetity-eight WILL IRWIN " The Next War " was the subject of a lecture delivered to the college students November 22, 1922, by Will Irwin, whose splendid efforts as a war correspondent won for him the title " The Ace of Correspondents. " The lecturer traced some lines of development of the modern code of cixilized warfare, and spoke of the economic aspects of war in the future. thp: hinshaw concert quartet The third number presented by the Lyceum Committee was The Hinshaw Concert Quartet : JosKFH ' et ' el. First Tenor Pierre Harrower, First Bass J. Sxeddex Weir, Second Tenor J. mes Wolf, Second Bass and Pianist The first part of the program was a concert, the most pleasing numbers of which were those given by Mr. Wetzel, " Che Gelida Manina " (La Boehme) — Puccini, and by Mr. Wolf, " The Captive " — Gretschaninow. In the second part of the program the quartet presented " Cox and Box, " a typical English operatic comedy, written by Sir Arthur Sullivan. MARGERY MAXWELL Margery Maxwell, an artist of rare personal charm, won her audience even before she had sung a note. She has a light lyric soprano voice of flute-like quality, which was especially pleasing in her bird songs, " The Catbird " by Clokey and " Spring " by Henschel. Her heaviest number, the aria, " Caro Nome " from Rigoletto, was rendered in an easy style and without apparent efTort. Miss Foster, a pianist of skill, gratified her audience both by her group of piano numbers and by her pleasing appearance. She was as gracious in respond- ing to encores as was Miss Maxwell. Two hundred twenty-nine DRAMATIZED AMERICAN SONGS The Lyceum Committee certainly delighted the students when it intro- duced to them Thurlow Lieurance, distinguished composer and pianist; Edna Wooley (Mrs. Lieurance in private life), soprano and interpreter, and George B. Tack, flutist. Mr. Lieurance has spent twenty years among the Indians, and told inter- esting bits of Indian customs and ceremonies, even explaining how he secured the themes which he has wo •en into his beautiful love songs. Edna Wooley, of very engaging personalit -, by her Indian costumes en- hanced the effectiveness of her interpretations. FLORENCE HARDEMAN Judging from the good attention and ready applause, the joint recital given by Florence Hardeman, an American violinist, and Stewart Wille, pianist, was very popular. Miss Hardeman, a protege of the late Maud Powell, was received with hearty appreciation. She was most gracious in responding both with encores and to special requests. Mr. Wille, who is well known here and always enjoyed by Denton music lovers, gave two piano groups. SOUTHWICK A large audience heard Mrs. Jessie Elbridge Southwick, wife of Doctor Southwick, president of Emerson College of Oratory, Boston, on March 23rd in a dramatic presentation, Zangwill ' s " The Melting Pot. " The speaker has an attractive stage presence and a pleasing voice, with clear enunciation and carrying power. Her al ility to portray the characters and their reactions was strong and effective. ENTERTAINMENT OF SENIOR CLASS If there was ever dignity among the senior class, it was certainly forgotten on October 25, when Wayman Blythe threw open the doors of her artistically decorated college home to the class of 1923. " Punch, Punch everywhere, and it was there to drink, " for as each guest was received, he was led to a punch bowl, and drank to his complete satisfaction. Two hundred thirty " Progressive forty-two " was the principal entertainment of the evening, but Inez Jones and Wilton ' . Cook did not seem to grasp the meaning of " Progressive, " for when the bell was tapped, ending the fun, they were still enjo ' ing lovely fellowship at the beginner ' s table. All seniors have shown appreciation of good literature, and on this occasion they were delighted in having Dr. Neff read and discuss the beautiful " Rubaiyat " by Omar Khayyam. Then, as a reward for the good behavior of all the boys and girls present, bogus degrees were presented to them. The appearance of butterflies in gold and white, bearing plates of ice-cream and cake in corresponding colors, brought a calm to the jolly crowd. After refreshments. Dr. and Mrs. Bruce bade the seniors good luck, and everyone went his way feeling — " My it ' s nice to be a senior. " SENIOR PARTY " You are cordially invited to attend a priv-ate showing of Dan Cupid ' s Masterpieces on February 10th at eight o ' clock P. M. " was the invitation sent out by Miss Berta Nutt and Miss Inez Jones to the members of the senior class. The seniors went: not one was tardy, but there were a few cuts. The exhibit was wonderful! Small heart-shaped folders were passed and the couples vied with one another in deciding upon the titles of the pictures. The prize, presented to Clara Cox and Wilton W. Cook, was a cake, which proved to be a cake of soap. LE vl lfr BFSINNtNfr Two hundred thirty-one After an interesting trip abroad, fun began with fishing for fortunes and blowing bubbles. The .seniors slacked their thirst with refreshing draughts fresh from Cupid ' s well-by-the-wayside where a pink rose vine clambered over a white trellis. Also dainty plate lunches in which the valentine idea was carried out in color scheme and arrangement. THE SENIORS AT THE LODGE The senior class was delightfully entertained at the " Cottage, " Saturday night, February 19, 1922. The first few moments were spent in conversation, and eating good " Cottage Made Candy. " Then the bell sounded to begin progressive forty-two, and much enthusiasm was displayed throughout the games. The candy plates were constantly refilled, for some seniors can ' t play without lots of " sweets. " An auction sale followed the forty-two games, and all bidders sought bar- gains. Many valuable articles, from marbles to hair curlers, were purchased with few " beans. " After such a nervous strain the refreshments of salads, sandwiches, and coffee were enjoyed immensely. JUNIOR ENTERTAINMENT OF SENIORS The Mary Arden Lodge was the center of such comings and goings as seemed to portend something of unusual interest. The storm broke at eight o ' clock. Dignified seniors threw off their air of superiority and mingled freely with a.spiring juniors. The receiving line had a smile and a good word for all, and the beauty of the decorations was proved by the man ' exclamations of delight. Bunco was enjoyed by all for thirty minutes. The winners received a lovely prize in the form of two rag dolls. Then the tables were cleared away and group games were indulged in with much enthusiasm. During an intermission in the games, refreshments made a welcome entrance. Delicious ice cream in the junior class colors and individual cakes in the senior colors were served. After these had vanished, everybody gathered around the piano for a lively sing- song. Ten-thirt ' came all too soon. SOPHOMORE ' POSSUM HUNT On Wednesday evening, October 2Sth, the sophomores found their way to the Anderson tarm for a real ' possum hunt. Some sixty or seventy enthusiastic nimrods, with Misses Garrison and Cox as chaperons, made the trip. In the flickering light of a fitful bonfire, games were played until supper was ready. There were wienies with mustard and bread, cucumber pickles, potato chips, and black steaming coffee, with apples plenty for dessert. Two hundred thirty-two Then came the hunters laden with ' possums twain, a thirtl having been caught and set free. After the excitement over such a successful adventure the whole group went into the hills, hunted more ' possums, sang songs and limericks, told camp-fire tales and absorbed moonlight, until the moon grew weary and hid behind a cloud. The occasion was doubly a success, since the sophomore class realizes that many people go on ' possum hunts, Ijut it takes a sophomore to catch ' em. FRESHMAN PARTY It takes the " Fish " to do things! On Saturday night, November 4th, the Freshmen all came in their part - attire, with happy faces, and from all e ' idence the time was great. Shakin ' hands was first in order, toUowed by the " barbershop harmony four, " directed by Charlie Jackson, and accompanied by John G. Varner. After- wards the reading of selections from Edgar A. Guest pleased all. Mr. and Mrs. Compton, acting as host and hostess, suggested that Mr. Jack- son lead in a sing-song. He was quick to respond, and very soon each guest was singing his best. Refreshments served as a stimulant before the guests " braved the winter storm " home. FRESHMAN HOBO DAY Suddenly the freshmen of the North Texas State Teachers ' College brought their light from under the bushel. They had previously held a secret council which was for the pur- pose of deciding the best way to express their individuality, and had decided that clothes make the man. So — Weary Willie, Sam the Dude, Ann the Ragged, and many other speci- mens of " let John do it " could be seen on the campus. It was Freshman Hobo Day. The eight o ' clock bell sounded and in strolled an unfortunate youth with a guilty expression; no wonder, for his hair was uncombed, his face was dirty, his brown pants, patched with material of an exquisite shade of blue, were expressing profound disgust of any relationship with his shoetops. A Just Arrive J Two hundred thirly-lhrce wonderful ciuality of preser -ation he had — the straw valise he carries was a relic of the olden days when all students i)rought their clothes to school in a " hope it don ' t rain " container. A woman followed him in; she was proud of her pigtails, of her big blue bonnet, of her long, tight, black dress, of her umbrella, which might have turned water if the cloth hadn ' t been torn in a dozen places. The pants of the next boy were held up partly by white string suspenders, but more by his imagination and the prayers of his fellow students. For the benefit and amusement of the teachers and upper classmen, and for the purpose of showing their " pep, " the fresh- men conglomeration put on a parade during chape! hour. Everyone bore with the " hoboes " during their day; Mr. Vitz even took their picture. They gathered on the west side of the Manual Arts Building; Mr. Vitz said, " Now smile;— that ' s good. " Freshman Hobo Day had come to a successful conclusion. Wearv Willie MORE FUN FOR THE FISH Everyone knows that the freshman class is the liveliest class in school, and the reason is that when it comes to planning to have a good time every member of the class comes across with his part of the work, regardless of what it is. At seven-thirty on February 24tli a group of the most optimistic " Fish " that ever assembled found themselves " running over with fun " in the two reading rooms of the Library. Miss Broadfoot and her " conk " horn and Miss Irene Miller were there to help corral the stampeding crowd. Various games were played, and everyone present showed how much he enjoyed them by his eager desire to join in. Miss Broadfoot and her " conk " horn came in very handy when the relays and contests came off. In the " Fish " contest I. B. Grififith and John Hooper won the prizes, I. B. for knowing most about " Fish " (that live in water), and John for knowing practically nothing at all. About ten o ' clock Iceland cakes and Vanilla Wafers were served the hungry crowd, after which they bade their host and hostesses a sad goodnight because they could stay no longer. Two hundred thirty-jour T%i ' o hundred thirly-five SECOND YEAR PARTY Tickets went on sale a week early, for the occasion was to be a great one, sucii as any live second year class would enjoy. The scene was laid in the beautifulK- decorated barracks, with all neces- sities for a lively evening. Miss Kennedy chaperoned the fifty enthusiastic students, and she was declared a lovely hostess. Victrola music, interspersed with clever readings by Miss Bryant, kept the spirit of good will and jollity abroad. Miss Harper, assisted by W. P. Hodge, had planned a very delightful evening and there was not a moment of pause. Good old " country-red " and cakes were enjoyed as refreshments. FIRST YEAR KID PARTY Several attempts were made to have the " Kid " party, planned by the first year class, but each time the staging of the affair was prevented. They were very optimistic, however, and finally put the show over in grand style. The " Kiddies " had gained permission early in the week to have that " night off, " and mothers were kind enough to grant them that one request, since Mr. and Mrs. Compton were to chapcrone. Loretta Newton and the Misses Patterson had left nothing undone towards making the guests happy. All were ushered into the reception hall, beautiful in orange and white, where games lasted for some length of time. Then Miss Newton displayed unusual ability at the piano, and Miss Bettye McGuire read a very entertaining selection. A male quartet ended the program. A scramble for lolly-pops and soda pop was the grand-finale of the evening. LAND OF HEART ' S DESIRE It was the " Land of Heart ' s Desire, " an Irish play written by Yeats, the well-known playright, that brought smiles and tears from a large enthusiastic audience on July 15, 1922. The situations were clever and the cast was well chosen. The scenery and costumes added much to the success of the play, for special efforts were made to have all the jiroperties new for the particular scenes. Ruth Carden, pla ing the part of the Child, and William Sherrell, playing the part of the Husband, deserve special mention for their ability to portray Irish character. Others playing strong parts were: Homer Pruett, the Father; Ruth Bomar, the Wife; Mary Clark, and Doyal Lloyd. Two hundred Ihirty-six ; ■ «•!« - Scene from " Land of Heart ' s Desire " FENNEL " Fennel, " an utterly charming romance, was presented by the Lilly Bruce Dramatic Club Monday evening, August 7th, telling the story of the violin makers of Cremona, the masters of their art. The curtain rose, and we were in the home of Tadeo Ferari, who was to award, as a prize to the maker of the best violin, his daughter dianina. The two contestants were Sandra and Filipo, the latter a cripple for life. The cripple Scene from " Fennel " Tico hundred Ihirty-seven won the prize, but sacrificed his gift to Sandra whom he loved better than life, and went forth a homeless wanderer from the only friends he had ever known. The cast was: Filipo, Alva Tompkins Sandra, C. C. Doak Ginina, Henrietta Carter Ferari, Marvin Sweatmon HIKE AND THEATRE PARTY No one had " The Last Long Mile " feeling when it was announced that the Dramatic Club would go for a hike and picnic. Some twen ty or thirty members met on the ivy-clad side of the crippled building and, led by Miss Page, hiked to the wilds of the aviation field, where a big fire and roasted wienies awaited them. Then to wind up the first chapter of the evening ' s fun, the members of the party gathered ' round the fire and sang to the moon and stars till the last spark had died away. Miss Garrison proposed a trip to C. I. A. to see a " Movie. " A hearty ap- proval from all hurried up the march, and the club members were soon gazing with delight at the various screen fav ' orites. All is well that ends well, and a recipe for fun is " wienies and mo ies. " WORK HOUSE WARD Everyone had a kindlier feeling toward the temperamental Irishman after seeing " Work House Ward, " written liy Lath- Gregory, a well known Irish Playright. The Irish interpretations were well handled by John Hansard as Mike Mclnery, an old man living in the work house, and Jack Gale, as Michael Miskell, Mike ' s friend. Honor Donohoe, played by Inez Jones, was very well done, and the entire play brought hearty applause. EUPLECTELLA A unique one-act Japanese play, Euplectella, was presenteil by the Dramatic Club early in the fall. Nell Ketsdever represented Euplectella, a lovely river spirit; Hazel Kirkpatrick, the Fir Tree; Everett Curry, a Japanese boy, Motaro; and Foy Martin, the Japanese mother, O ' Kire. The beautiful outdoor Japanese stage setting and the lighting effects added much to the attractiveness of the pro- duction. Two hundred Ihirty-eighl Scene from " Come (hit of the Kitchen " COME OUT OF THE KITCHEN The Lillic Bruce Dramatic Club scored a success by the iiresenlation of " Come Out of the Kitchen " on Deceml)er 11th. Miss Kat " e Andrews portrayed the leading lady ' s part, that of Olivia Dangerfield, alias Jane Ellen, which demanded quick changes from the southern lady of quality to the Irish cook. Miss Vi ian Simpson, as Mrs. Faulkner, displayed unusual dramatic ability. The jiarts of Elizabeth Dangerfield, alias Araminta, played by Coleen Stanley, Paul Dangerfield, alias Sniithfield, taken by Roy Huggins, and diaries Dangerfield, alias Brindleberry, phued by Leon Taliaferro, each required a double characterization. Wilton Cook, as Thomas Lefferts, a statistical jjoet, added to the effecti eness of the play by his indi- idualit - in portra ' ing the part. A. A. Allen, who played opposite the leading lady in the part of Burton Crane, showed an admirable dignity. Jessie Mae Blaine was well chosen for the jiart of Cora Faulkner, and Inez Jones, as Amanda, 01i -ia ' s black mammy, securi-d ni.un- laughs from the appreciative audience. Homer Pruett, as Randolph Weeks, and Mar in Sweatmon, as Solon Tucker, displa ' ed ability and indi idualit ' in their interpretations. The between-act specialties, marked b - ery pretty stage settings, costuming and music, made quite eftecti e numhi-rs. THE TRYSTING PLACE One of the best recei ed jilays gi en by the Dramatic Club was " The Tryst- ing Place " by Booth Tarkington. Ample proof of its excellence was found in llie anuised rluickles that came from ihe audience during the episodes of the pla -. All the parts in the pl,t - were well taken and each actor made an indixidual of his character. Two hitiuircd lliirlv-iiine Tulip Time in Holland The cast follows in order of appearance: Tackington Mrs. Curtis Rupert (Jessie Ingoldsby Mrs. Briggs YTT Ji Efl . U mk ' .

SOUTHWICK Complimenting Mrs. Southwick, who appeared on the Artists Course, the doors of the Music Hall decorated in Dramatic Club colors, were thrown open to fifty guests. It was ten o ' clock before the receiving line began to greet the company, and despite the late hour every guest made an effort to know every other guest. Dr. and Mrs. Bruce and the Reading Department of C. I. A. were the honor guests. Piano music by Wilton W. Cook and progressive conversations were the features of the evening. Brick cream, cocoanul macaroons and mints were served by girls of the club. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLliB PROGRAM Over a thousand assembled to see one of the most entertaining features of the term, a program given on the campus by the Physical Education Club. The program consisted of a number of dances, which were very attractive and artistic, and each number met with hearty applause from spectators. The following girls deserve special mention for their creditable work in solo dances: Mavis Pirtle, Opal Whiteside, Louise Preston, Hazel Kirkpatrick, Mayme Reece and Grace Holloway. The class dances dispUned the unusual ability of the physical education department to stage such performances. Two hundred forty MARY ARDEN ANNUAL PLAY According to custom, the Mary Arden Club, on the evening of April (3th, presented its annual play, The Taming of the Shrew. But on this particular occasion there was an incentive for a success such as had never been at any previous time. This was the hope of beginning very soon upon the building of a lodge for the club, and thus the motto was " fill thy purse with money. " The stage setting, though not elaborate, was very appropriate and the costumes were tasteful and beautiful. Each character was interpreted in a creditable manner, but Ruth Crawford, as Petruchio, Jessie Lee Cates, as Grumio, and Va Rue OrndorfT, as Katherina, played their parts in a manner unusually artistic and pleasing. The cast for the play was as follows: Petruchio, Ruth Crawford Hortensio, RuTH Carter Baptista, Mary Alice Underwood Grumio, Jessie Lee Cates Lucentio, Emily Hayes Biondello, Helen Emberson Curtio, Ruth Parker Katherina, Va Rue Orndorff Bianca, Ima Elliott Wife of Lucentio, Ethel Bunch These characters, under the direction of Miss Edith L. Clark, and working with other club members, made the play a success. The program was effectively concluded by two graceful dances. MARY ARDEN LODGE Laying the first brick castle dream was no longer a mere vision, but a reality " Such airy substances as dreams are made of " spread among college girls like contagious diseases, although the realization of these dreams is not usually to be expected. Howe er, dreams do sometimes come true after years of toil, and so it was in the case of the Mar - Ardens. Early in the summer of 1922 the corner stone of their ambitions was laid and by September the the Mary Arden Lodge. IG Two hundred Jorty-one MARY ARDEN RECEPTION The " Marys " always look forward to visits in the home of tht-ir club mother, Miss Clark. They were given one of these lovely surprises on October 18, 1922. As each guest arrived, she was graciously received by Miss Clark, and spent the first few moments delightfully in getting better acquainted. After an in- spiring talk by Miss Clark there was a short business session. Officers were elected and various committees were appointed. Further plans for organization were discussed and moving into the Lodge was an especially interesting topic. Then the social hour began and further acquaintances were made. Delicious fruits were found sprinkled with autumn leaves, and each guest was invited to choose his favorite king. Before going home, both " Old and New Marys " expressed their apprecia- tion of the hospitality of their beloved sponsor. MARY ARDEN THANKSGIVING PROGRAM Could one ha ' e looked through the glass doors of the Mary Arden Lodge on the evening of November 17th, he would have felt that some half-dozen characters had stepped immediately out of the old family album. Indeed, those inside were demurely dressed in ruffles and laces, beauty spots and powdered wigs. These maidens of old composed the social committee and the participants in the minuet later in the evening. Such a social hour, following the regular program, was a pleasing diversity. MARY ARDEN CHRISTMAS RECEPTION On Wednesday evening, December 13th, the Mary Arden Lodge was initiated when their annual Christmas reception was given by its proud possessors. Since the " Marys " were in their own club house, this was made the most elaborate occasion of the kind in the history of the club. After passing the reception line, the guests were free to meet their friends and to form new acquaintances. But promiscuous group talking was soon called to a halt when the girls were summoned to the center of the room while the boys formed a protecting circle around the fair " Marys. " The girls were presented with small paper boys tied with ribbon. The effect was disappointing, for the sacks seemed far too light to contain anything more than air. All anxious hearts were eased, however, when the bags were burst, and inside of each was found the name of the girl ' s partner. All conversation ceased for the second time when the minuet was played and Misses Nell Ketsdever, Grace HoUoway, Ruth Crawford, and Ina Owens, dressed in colonial costumes, appeared. The minuet ended in a Grand March headed by the colonial couples. Two hundred forty-two A mixed quarter consisting of Misses Rowena Newman and Grace Holloway, and Messrs. R. E. Stephens and Robert Tampke was thoroughly enjoyed and was followed by the singing of " Silent Night, " in which everyone participated. But the one occasion of complete merriment and the one which made every- one revert to his childhood Christmas spirit was the lighted Christmas tree laden with presents for the guests. Mr. Fred Minor, as Santa ' s representative, in his own clever way, presented the presents — a toy for every little boy, from Dr. Bruce to Tippie Pollan. In the dining-room every couple found a delight in lingering near the punch bowl, which was placed among wreathes of holly. CURRENT LITERATURE CLUB ROOM The Current Literature Club girls could not wish for a more ideal room in which to have their meetings than the one which they have this year arranged in the Music Hall. It is a large, cheerful room extending across the entire east side of the second floor. Cream-colored draperies at the windows harmonize with the bisque tinting of the walls, on which are several prints of masterpieces, including Breton ' s " Song of the Lark, " and Corot ' s " Spring. " The turniture in the room is elegantly simple and between the two east windows is a fireplace around which the chairs are arranged in a semi-circle, giving the whole a homelike appearance. CURRENT LITERATURE CLUB ENTERTAINMENT On Saturday evening, November 4th, Mrs. Jack Johnson entertained the Current Literature Club in her lovely new home on Mulberry Street. Fifty girls could not have been entertained by a more delightful hostess. There was not the briefest pause between games, and ten-thirty came much too soon. Delicious refreshments were artistically garnished with tiny American flags. CURRENT LITERATURE CLUB COLONIAL PARTY Had you peeped into the Music Hall on Saturday evening, February 17th, when the C. L. C ' s annual colonial party was in progress, you would not have recognized the hall, in all its gala attire. As the girls entered they were no longer the girls of 1923, but were real colonial ladies going down a receiving line headed by George and Martha Wash- ington. Two hundred forty-three Colonial Dames A number of patriotic games and contests, interspersed with solo dances by Misses Broadfoot and Douglas, were enjoyed. Then sixty-fi e girls were delighted by cherry ice cream and cake artistically served by Gladys Hairston and Lorene Williams. CURRENT LITERATURE CLUB PARTY On Friday evening, February 23rd, the C. L. C.s ' met at Miss Morley ' s home on Mulberry Street for its regular meeting. After roll call and a short business meeting, Dr. Morley gave an instructive talk on the " Book of Job. " A delightful social hour had been planned by Miss Morley. A clever card contest, efTectively carrying out the club colors of lavender and white, was one of the chief features of the evening. Dainty refreshments in lavender and white were served to the members present and to several visitors. GLEE CLUB PROGRAM Sunday afternoon, December 17th, in the Auditorium, a program of carols of unusual charm was presented by the Boys ' and the Girls ' Glee Clubs and the College Chorus, directed by Miss Parrill. All the favorites were there to delight our soul — " Adeste Fidelis, " " Silent Night, " and that lovely " First Noel. " Besides these dear old familiar ones, without which no Christmas would be complete, a number of less widely known carols charmed the audience. Two hundred forly-four Miss Page ' s reading of the Christmas stor - from Ben Hur, together with the strains of those ever new, ancient carols, sent a thoughtful group of students, faculty, and townspeople out into the gray December twilight with a glimpse of " the hca enh- vision. " GLEE CLUB GIRLS AND FOOTBALL BOYS The Glee Club girls entertained the football boys in a back-to-the-farm affair Saturthn- night, December 16th. The boys wore overalls, and the girls wore aprons, and it was peculiar to see how e ■e yone seemed to be perfectly at home. A number of games of Flea were enjoyed, after which oranges and popcorn were passed. The merriment lasted until well into the night, and everyone was genuinely sorry when the time came to say good-bye to the hostesses. THE SCRIBES ORGANIZE On Wednesday morning, December 17th, a meeting of the Student County Reporters was held for the purpose of organization. For the name of their club, the reporters agreed upon " Scribes, " a title suggested for the original organiza- tion of reporters by Miss Clara Parker, a former member of the faculty, and used by them since that time. The Scribes send out at regular inter als, to their home newspapers, letters which contain items of interest concerning the College and especially concerning those students of the College who come from the special communities in which the respective papers are published. SCRIBES BANQUET Seventy-five happy Scribes were the guests of the club ' s faculty sponsors at a " get-acquainted " banquet on Wednesday evening, January 21, 1923, at the First Christian Church. While we waited in the auditorium for the crowd to gather, Mr. Smith, one of our faculty sponsors, suggested that we begin getting acquainted. Hence each Scribe rose and gave his name and home. Then we passed into the dining hall where the banquet proper was held. During the serving of the first course, Mr. Kibler, the president, told us something of the history and the work of the Scribes in former years. He showed us the Scribes ' " Scrapbook " in which all the chilis ' letters and articles to the various newspapers were pasted. Other altracti e numbers on the program followed. During the last course, Mr. Burke, acting as spokesman for those at his table, challenged those at Mr. Kibler ' s table to a spelling match during the social hour following. The challenge was enthusiastically accepted, and then Miss Vesta T ' ii ' o hundred Jorly-five Hicks challenged the winners to spell those at her table for the championship. The challenges caused much merriment as each Scribe began to nudge his neighbor and ask how certain catch words were spelled. But John Ashburn, who was leader of the singing, said he was not going to be cheated out of his part of the program for any spelling match ; so all gathered around the piano, and, with Miss Mamie Smith accompanying, were soon heartily enjoying favorite songs. Very soon Miss Smith began to play " Good- night, Scribes. " The general exclamation, " Oh, is it time to go home? " proved how much we had enjoyed the whole evening. A. E. F. THEATRE PARTY The A. E. F. Club led by Miss Harrington, advanced upon the Princess Theatre and took it with little or no resistance on Saturday night, July 1, 1922. After the show, Miss Harrington led her company to the ice-cream parlor and delicious sundaes were served to all, a treat that soldiers did not enjoy during their years of service. A. E. F. HIKE. " Fall in, " was the signal given on Saturday, July 8th, when the A. E. F. staged a hike that was enjoyed by all. The troops arrived at the park on time and began preparations for the eats. Sandwiches, tomatoes, pickles, onions, and coffee were served in " helpy- selfy " style. Too much coffee made the soldierly party " tipsy " and through a severe trial, J. J. Grace was convicted of embezzlement. Miss Harrington insisted on telling the court all she knew and then more, and it was necessary to administer arti- ficial stimulants to quiet her talkative nature. The audience and court were exhausted over the nerve wrecking trial, and not until ice-cream and cakes were passed did their strength and " pep " revive. Songs were sung as the merry party strolled back to town. A. E. F. PARTY No sudden changes of the weather, no, not even rain can " bluff " the A. E. F. Club from going on picnics in the summer time. Two hundred jorty-six Two hiiiiilrcd jorly-seven The " gang, " loaded on two trucks, were dumped at McNatts ' lake ready for a glorious time. Eating was first in order, and it is impossible to know just how many good cooks there are on the campus until one goes on a picnic. After the eats, came watermelons; after watermelons, swimming; after swimming, ice-cream; and after ice-cream, home. Thus in one happy succession of joys and good " eats " the last A. E. F. part - for the season came to an end. A. E. F. ' POSSUM HUNT The A. E. F. club met in front of the Administration Building with their wives, sweethearts, and friends for the purpose of going on a hunt. The party was taken to the scene of the hunt in automobiles, and, as they went by town, provisions were obtained for supper. Supper was prepared immediately after landing, and a " filling " meal was enjo -ed. The spell of cjuiet was broken by the sudden appearance of Irvin West, announcing that the old hound had something up a tree and would not leave under any circumstances. The entire party went to the scene with him. At first nothing could be seen. Pruett, hard to be convinced, decided to climb the tree. When he was near the top, the moon began to shine brighter, and an object of immense size was seen going higher and higher up the tree. Pruett yelled for the crowd to give way, and he began to shake the limbs fiercely. " Varmints " of every description began falling like hail stones. Desperate fights ensued, which re ealed that the disco ery was a family of Coons instead of ' possums. The hunt over, all went to camp, and then home. Moral; The Sophs may go ' possum huntin ' and catch ' possums, but it takes the A. E. F.s ' to go ' possum hunting and catch coons. YOUNG WOMEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE The Young Women ' s Christian Associations of Te.xas Woman ' s College and the Texas Christian University were hostesses to the visiting girls at the con- ference held at Lake Worth on April 15, 1922. The girls from our college arrived on Saturday afternoon, and very soon felt much at home because of their charm- ing hostesses. Some time was spent in hikes and games, but the things which will long be remembered by the girls were the devotional meetings, in which the beautiful and helpful talks and spiritual atmosphere were most elevating. Some of the speakers were Miss Pinckney of N. T. S. N.; Miss Bruner, Student Secretary of the National Board of Religious Education; and Dr. Stout of Texas Christian University. Two hundred forty-eight Two hundred forty-nine ESTES PARK Nestling deep in the Rockies, Estes Park beckons to every College girl of the Central West to come for ten glorious days of study, recreation and inspira- tion spent in conference with other college girls. Although it is many miles from our campus, yet each summer representatives from the Teachers College Y. W. C. A. attend the annual conference. Miss Walker, Ruth Crawford, Gladys Massey and Eunice Jones were our representatives at the ' 22 conference. As a result of the conference each girl feels through all the years the call: " Behold I send you forth, " some to open blind eyes to the beauties of the world and the treasures of learning; some to train unskilled hands to do good work; some to lighten the burdens of toiling women; and some to make bright the eyes of little children. Each girl returns to Campus life more conscious of indi- vidual responsibility. Y. W. C. A. PARTY At last registration was over and the night for the " Get Acquainted Party " rolled around. Accordigly everyone donned his " gala rigs " and sallied forth in search of adventure; a few might even have been looking for Romance, because the in ' itations read : MISS Y. W. C. A. requests the honor of your presence at the marriage of her niece, Miss Ima Beginner, to Mr. Has Been Herebefore, at eight o ' clock Saturday evening College Campus THE GET AOUAINTED PARTY JO YA.

" Then we were brought back to reality by the preacher ' s sonorous tones in the beginning of the wedding ceremony. The preacher did look oddly familiar, and presently from out the dusty, musty recesses of our brains popped the name of Willis Floyd. Then we looked, oh ever so hard, and, after a careful scrutiny, we decided that the handsome and youthful bride- groom was no other than Carol Wilson and the girl he was marrying Nathan Irwin. The " Grand March " which came immediately after the ceremony w-as enough to disturb the dignity of a serious minded senior. First, there came Miss Page, as the maid of honor, leaning on the arm of the gallant Knight; next Mr. Blair and Mrs. Shoemaker, as the parents, and then Mr. Odam and Miss Duggan, as the grandparents. It was not long until the entire crowd of jolly students had joined in the march. Afterwards, everybody gathered around the piano and sang every kind of song, from " Tuck me to Sleep " to " Under the Shade of the Old Apple Tree. " While we sang, neighbor spoke to neighbor until we felt all queer and " topsy- turby " and our heads spun like tops. Along toward the " wee sma " hours of the night we w ' andered off home with many happy memories of our " Get Acquainted Party. " Y. W. C. A. RECOGNITION SERVICE Very beautiful and impressive was the service on October 28th, when the Young Women ' s Christian Association observed " Recognition Day. " The service was made even more effective by the soft glow from two large candles which furnished the only light. As the members passed slowly in, Miss Shook, at the door, gave each one a candle. When they had taken their seats, and while Miss Vivian Huftaker at the piano played softly, the cabinet members passed in and were presented with candles also. The new president and vice-president. Misses Ruth Crawford and Louise Butler, took their places, and afterwards Miss Crawford, in an impressive manner, welcomed the new membeis into the Association. Following this a prayer was offered, and then Miss Crawford lighted her candle, signifying by this act her desire to let her " light so shine " for Jesus Christ, our Sa ior. When each cabinet member had lighted her candle from this one, the indi- ■idual members passed by, while soft strains of music were played, and each lighted her candle from that of a cabinet member. While they sang softly " Follow the Gleam, " the members of the cabinet, led by their president, passed out, forming two lines just outside the door. Between these two lines the new members passed, each one more determined to present her " body a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God. " Two hundred fijty-one THE Y. W. C. A. BANQUET The Annual Y. VV. C. A. banquet, held on January 24th, was one of the most enjoyable social events of the year. The grand march of one hundred girls and the ad -if:ory board was led by Miss Clark and Ruth Crawford. Miss Crawford, a delightful toastmistress, presided o •er the program given between courses, in the form of a three-act play, " The Stage of Life. " The toasts were made to those who have come before us, to ourselves, and to those who shall come after us. A reading, a solo, and assembly songs lent enjoyment to the program. CABINET TRAINING Exams were over and we were off! Eight cabinet girls and Miss Clara Cox, equipped for spending a week-end at the Y. W. C. A. home in Dallas, boarded the Good Ship, alias the Service Car, at the East Entrance and sped away pretending they were on their way to Estes Park. At the first meeting the Denton Teachers College delegates received an innovation. Saturday morning Misses Harris, Clark, and Duggan joined the party, which was com- posed of Edith Seigler, Louise Butler, Anna Fritts, Esther O ' Shields, Helen Con- nell, Thena Mae Meek, Lecil Bagwell, and Paralee Henegar. Two busy days were spent with the representatives from the other colleges of North Texas in discussing problems and interests of campus life. Y. M. C. A. PARTY On the evening of January the seventeenth Mr. P. P. Dawson, retiring president of the Y. M. C. A., entertained the cabinets of the Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A. at an informal part - in the Music Hall. As the guests arrived, they were greeted by a " welcome " committee, and the name of a celebrity was pinned upon the back of each. When all had arrived, at a given signal, each began rushing about in an attempt to find out the pseu- donyms of as many others as possible, while concealing his own. The prize was presented by Dr. Bruce in a cle •er impromptu speech to Miss Gladys Massey. During the evening, games and contests were interspersed with musical numbers by Wilton Cook and Theo Mahler, and with readings by Misses Page and Garrison. Miss Page read a one-act play by Constance MacKaye and a child dialect selection, " Mud Pies. " Miss Garrison interpreted two beautiful poems of Robert Browning and " A Hindoo ' s Paradise. " Dr. Bruce ended the program with several amusing interpretations of his own. Delicious refreshments of hot chocolate and wafers were served. Just before the guests departed Mr. Dawson made a speech in recognition of the Two hundred Jijty-lwo support he had received from both the V. V. C. A. and V. M. C " . A. during his term of office. He then pledged to the incoming president, Mr. Thomas Davis, his earnest support and lo alty. CONGRESSMAN UPSHAW The Y. M. C. A., in an effort to ser e, has endeavored to secure from time to time noted speakers for the College. This year, on November 16th, the Y. M. C. A. was fortunate in presenting Mr. Upshaw, Congressman from Georgia, who gave his famous lecture " John and His Hat. " Several hundred heard him despite the downpouring of rain. The subject was very humorously presented. Its uniqueness made possible the expected clever presentation. The speaker, after many introductory re- marks, explained the meaning of his subject and suggested the content of his lecture by a quotation from a speech of Henry W. Grady, delivered at the University of Virginia: " Teach a man that his sovereignty is beneath his hat. " SCOUTS TO THE RESCUE Not all the fifteen-reel thrillers are written and acted in Hollywood. The scouts of the Blue Bonnet Troop played an all-star cast in " Scouts to the Rescue " in a scout rally at the First Baptist Church on March 27. 1923. The production, aside from providing thrills of suspense, fits of anger, and gales of laughter, portrayed vividly the principles of scoutcraft. Captain Sylvia and her patrol, with the help of Jack Neal, an Eagle Scout, rescued the heir and heiress from the villain, Hell Bent Wade, whom they captured and gave over to the sheriff. The cleverest part of the composition was the races on horseback. The cast consisted of: Captain Sylvia Gray Mable Holland C. B.Randolph, millionaire Inez Lav His wife Nell Lumley Percy Randolph, their son Ina Owens Billy Joe Randolph, their daughter . . . Irene Spear Hell Bent Wade Ursula Angel Jack Neal, an Eagle Scout Velma Inmon Six-Shooter Pete Dawson, the sheriff . . Violet Jacob Girl Scouts: Alice Roberts Juanita Compton Eliza Morgan Bessie Chilcoate Marv Hamond Mary McHugh Two hundred fifty -three Two hundred fifty-four PRIMARY KINDERGARTEN THEATRE PARTY On July 22nd, the Primary Kindergarten Club members met in front of the Administration Building, and went on a Theatre Party, chaperoned by Misses Stafford and Harrington. They Saw Eugene O ' Brine in " John Smith " at the Strand, and judging from the chatter among the guests, it was quite entertaining. After the show, the club was escorted to Collier and Brooks, where delicious drinks were se rved to about thirty, including members and always welcome guests. PRIMARY KINDERGARTEN SWIM On August 15th, about four P. M. by the big town clock, forty happy P. Ks. motored to McNatt ' s lake for a swim. For more than an hour they played " water ducks, " but soon a cry for food rang out, and all made ready for cooking. Supper was served to the hungry mob, but it took the second course of ice-cold watermelon to satisfy their hunger. The entire club, accompanied by several members of the faculty, enjoyed the afternoon ' s revelrv. OUR COUNTY CLUBS Old friends like old books are the ones we love most, and these friends are usually the ones whom we have loved from childhood — those from " home. " When we enter college, we make new acquaintances, we form new friendships; but there is no tie that binds our hearts like the home ties. This fact we recognize in our county clubs. It gives one such a delightful feeling of " at homeness " to know that he belongs to an organization into which no stranger can enter, an ideal society, which contains not one undesirable member. (For, of course, " our county " produces none but the best.) Even though the election of otificers is about the extent of its activities, we feel that we are bound together, and that we are re- maining loyal to the folks back home. How it must thrill them, how glad their hearts must be to receive a letter stating that we belong to the club which repre- sents our own dear county! They know then that we have not forgotten home. (No need to tell them that the club ne er met but once.) And so this custom, which has continued so long that it has almost the force of a law, is here to stay. We refuse to abandon our county clnbs; and, as Tiny Tim Observed, " God bless them ever ' one. " Two hundred fifty-five SENIOR RECCGNITICN SERVICE On October 27th the annual Senior Recognition Service was observed in chapel, when the class of 1923 was presented to the student body. The facultv members were seated on the platform, which was artistically decorated with ferns and the class colors, gold and white. The students were justly proud of the seniors who, led by their president, entered to the strains of a processional played by Miss Anderson. After the seniors had taken their places on the platform, the students and facult ' joined in singing the h mn, " Come Thou, Almighty King, " after which Dr. Bruce pronounced the in -ocation. Dean E. D. Criddle then made the formal speech of recognition. His words, though few, were well chosen and were delivered in that impressive manner so characteristic of him. At the conc lusion of his address, he intro- duced the class president, Mr. Robert A. Tampke, who, after a fitting response, presented the indi idual members of the class. The service was concluded by the playing of the recessional while the seniors passed from the auditorium. DR. ROSSER SPEAKS IN CHAPEL An instructive talk, given by Dr. C. M. Rosser, president of the Medical Association of Dallas County, and a prominent surgeon of the Baptist Sani- tarium, was enjoyed by the students on Saturday, October 28th. Some inter- esting and helpful facts of the various health drives were presented, showing how people had become awakened to the growing need of proper care of the entire body. STUDENTS ' THANKSGIVING PROGRAM Practically the entire student body attended the Thanksgiving program. As an opening number, the audience sang " The Spacious Firmament on High " by Haydn. Miss Mildred Devenport read the Scripture lesson, and Willis Floyd led in prayer. The Girls ' Glee Club, directed by Miss Mamie Smith, sang " The Swallows " by Serajo. The speaker for the occasion was Miss Lola Jackson, who prefaced her remarks by reading the Governor ' s Thanksgiving Proclamation. She then spoke briefly of the blessings we enjoy as American citizens, and stressed the fact that there are countless blessings right around us. We find them in the spirit of friendliness and helpfulness here in our own college, out of which come the little kindnesses, the pleasant words, the sunny smiles, and the many little courtesies which we receive each day. Two hundred fifty-six COLLEGE CHORUS SINGS IN CHAPEL It was an eager group of students who gathered in the auditorium lor chapel on December 9th. It had been announced that the Choral Club, directed by Miss Parrill, would give a recital that day. Each student anticipated a rare treat, nor did anyone have occasion to be disappointed. The program, which consisted of numbers that had been studied during the term, was particularly interesting. Each selection was rendered in a charming manner, which reflected much credit upon each member of the chorus as well as upon Miss Parrill. And it was an unusually appreciati e audience that enjoyed these numbers, so appro- priate to the time of year. " The Lord is Great " — Mendelssohn, " The Magnet and the Chum " from " Patience " — Sullivan, " Farewell Summer " from " Martha " — Flotow, " The Hiring Fair " from " Chimes of Normandy " — Plancjuette, " Seeing Nellie Home " and " Jingle Bells. " Miss Rowena Newman, the soloist on this occasion, displayed unusual ability in rendition of her selections. REAGAN CHAPEL PROGRAM On Thursday, December 13th, the Reagan Literary Society rendered, during the chapel period, a program of their own choosing. The stage was occupied solely by Reagans. Mr. Blankenship, the chairman, briefly explained the nature of the program, after which Mr. Coffee gave a declamation, entitled The New South. The attention and applause recei ed by Mr. Coffee showed the appreciation of his audience. The second number of the program was A Literary Society ' s Place in an Institution Like This by Mr. P. M. Johnston. He spoke of the ad antages of school activities, of the abuses of those advantages, and of the regrets in later life for negligence now. LEE LITERARY SOCIETY CHAPEL PROGRAM The annual chapel program given by the Lee Literary Society, on January 16th, was simple and dignified in nature. The members marched to the platform while the processional was being played by Wilton Cook. After a short prayer by P. P. Dawson, the president, Willis Floyd, took charge of the program. A male quartette gave two numbers, and after a continued applause answered with an encore of their own compo- sition. Following the quartette, Willis Floyd held the audience with his power as a declaimer, and received a long applause. The audience was led in " Singing Glory to the Green, " after which the society passed ofT as the first strains of the recessional were soundefl. T ' lUn huinired fifty-seven 17 Two hundred fifly-eiglil ALVIN OWSLEY The auditorium was crowded long before the distinguished guest arri •ed. Such questions as, " Who is he? " and " What does he look like? " were passed among the students. The band began a lively martial air, and Dr. Bruce led the isitors to the platform. The long looked for person was no other than AKin Owsley, a former student of the college, and one who has won world fame by being made National Commander of the American Legion of the V. S. A. Mr. Owsley expressed his joy at being able to come back home to the friends who have been instrumental in his achievements. He urged that every young man who was eligible become a member of the American Legion, as he feels that the welfare of our nation rests, to a great extent, in the hands of this organization. Tribute was paid Mr. and Mrs. Owsley, parents of Alvin Owsley, who sat on the platform with the distinguished ■isitor. EX-STUDENT ASSOCIATION The Ex-Students and Alumni of the North Texas Teachers ' College met in regular annual session June 3, 1922. Miss Lillian D. Walker presided. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: Ralph Patrick President R. H. Davis Vice-President Berta M. Looney Secretary Lillian D. W ' alker .... Correspondin ! Secretary Mrs. Shumaker Treasurer Talks were made by Messrs. Leggett and Floys, urging the new members to take an active part in the association. It is hoped that an enthusiastic body of supporters o{ our college can be built up, and that the spirit of the association will grow with time. GET TOGETHER PARTY A good w-ay to cure the " Blues " is to attend the Get-to-Gether parties given on the campus at the beginning of each regular session and summer. This particular part ' was given on Saturday, June 24, 1922. The enter- tainment of the evening was begun by a most attractive dance by four little Misses of the Training School. The remaining part of the program was simply an informal good time. A Campus party is not complete without ice cream cones, which always furnish the climax, as they did on this Saturday night. Everyone went home happy because he had forgotten his " home-sickness, " and instead had taken away a new friend. T ' ifo Inmdred fifty-nine SING-SONG TO be able to sing is the mark of intelligence, " said Mr. Losh of Fort Worth, who conducted a sing-song on the campus Monday, August IHth. Before entering into the singing, Mr. Losh made a short talk on the value of community singing and the helpful effects of it upon school children. Assisted by Mrs. Bernard W. Taylor at the piano, Mr. Losh began the singing with " M - Country ' Tis of Thee, " to which the response from the crowd was excellent. Other songs of the e ening were, " The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You, " " Denton Will Shine Tonight, " " Oh Mistress Shady, " " Great Big Silver Moon, " " Love ' s Old Sweet Song. " Some clever demonstrations of the ability of children were presented by Mr. Losh. Afterwards, Mr. Losh sang as solos, " On the Road to Mandalay " and " Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms. " Last the audience joined in singing " Battle Hymn of the Republic. " HALLOWE ' EN PARTY If anyone thinks that our campus is always just a changeless expanse of grass, shrubs, trees — and benches, that person did not attend the Hallowe ' en party. Those very trees we sat under in the afternoon were changed by night RUDOLPH JOJT HAD TO COME Of coue £ CHAHlIf w!,j BiiiEi " - ' ' ' Two hundred sixly into mysterious shadows, among which flitted ghosts and goblins, great and small. We started down the walk from the Administration Building and were forced to get off on the grass to avoid meeting the Devil face to face; but even then we encountered an immense white-robed skele- ton, who insisted on shaking our hands. We timorously complied with his wishes and, as we went hurrying away, realized that the contact with his clammy hand had left on ours a sticky substance similar to library paste. At that moment a strange horseman rode by, and, horrors! he had no head. A little further on hung a large black kettle on a tripod, around which was assembled a crowd of jolly folks having their fortunes told by two elfish- looking creatures. There was also a tub where fortunes were caught on a fishing-hook. Out in the street by the Education Building were huge bonfires, where countless wienies were roasted and marsh- mallows toasted. By this time we were more accustomed to our weird sur- roundings and enjoyed the rest of the evening of merry-making. FOOTBALL BANQUET Many times did the football squad hear the desperate cry of " Fight Eagles, Fight! " They fought, fought hard and won. The last touchdown of the season Two hundred sixt -one ; As a mark of appreciation for their deserving efforts, a banquet for the entire squad was given in the American Palm Garden on Friday night, December 11th. A. V. Price acted as Master of Ceremonies. The program included the following toasts : " Our Team " — Fay Snyder. ' ' . " Our Coach " — Guy Davidson. j ' lj " Our Retiring Captain " — Glenn Balch. !;! " Our New Captain " — Loren McCray. H|i " The Eaglets " — Dan McAllister. i; Address — Oswin King, Dallas. i ' ■ The tables were formed as a " T, " and the college colors were tastefully used as decoration. An elaborate feast featuring roast wild goose was served, and music was furnished bv the American Orchestra. After the banquet there was a short business session in which Claude Brannan, the famous line plunging fullback of this year ' s squad, was elected Captain for the team of 1923. ANNUAL KID PARTY In chapel we have often heard Dr. Bruce say that the one line he draws in this institution is the color line. However, even this wasn ' t drawn at the annual kid party held in the girls ' g ' mnasium; for among the kids who attended were many little darkies. Huckleberry Finns and Mary Janes were there in abundance. And of course, there were several little jelly beans and baby dolls. However, the dressed up little people, the freckle faced scamps, and the pickaninnies mingled congenially, and enjoyed immensely the program of danc- ing, singing, and pulling stunts. Each child brought an apple and a stick of candy which he ate when the social hour drew to a close; then all ran home to their mother ' s to have their sticky fingers washed. SATURDAY NIGHT OPEN HOUSE Sometimes even an " A " student grows tired of the eternal routine of books, and then, looking around for recreation, he finds that there is always the " Open House " on Saturday evenings to which he may joyfully betake himself. The " Open House " was established last year to fill just such need. The increased number attending this year proves our need of a social center where the students will all be on an equal footing. If one glanced over the quest books in Two hundred sixty-two Two hundred sixty-three which everyone is requested to write his name, it would be an easy matter for him to see what a success this gathering on Saturday evenings has proved to be. There are always a variety of amusements provided for. The Boys ' reading room is entirely turned over to such games as forty-two, checkers, rook, etc., while in the Girls ' reading room the crowd is always attracted by music and games. The Physical Education Department has entered into hearty co-operation with the Faculty Social Committee this year; so if one descends to the " gym, " he finds such facinating amusements as chair relay, dumb-bell, tag, fire on the hill, and the quadrille. ORGANIZATION OF EX-STUDENTS On Friday e " ening, January 2nd, a group of former students met at the First Baptist Church and effected a local club of the Ex-Students ' Association. Although the attendance was not large, much enthusiasm was manifested. Mr. L. L. Miller was elected chairman; Mr. L. A. Allison, vice-chairman; Miss Lillian Walker, secretary, and Misses Bessie Shook and Lottie Brashears, public- ity committee. It was decided that annual meetings of the club will be held on the twenty- first of every April. Also plans for the purpose of securing all former students of the College in Denton County and of organizing local units in the different towns were made. FAVORITES The nominations for fa ' orites in chapel was a " snappy affair. " From the beginning strong competition was in the air, and it was easy to see that each boy would do his best to see his girl win. One boy was even heard to say, " She will win, if I must sell Pa ' s old gray mule. " W ' onder if the mule was sold? The following is a list of those nominated: Most popular boy: LHys Knight, Claude Brannan, Fay Snyder, Clint Wilkes, Walter West, and Arthur Jones. Best boy sport: H. A. Ferryman, George Kibler, Tippie Pollan, " Sheriff " Johnson, Thad Murley, and Chester Jarrell. Wittiest boy: J. A. Wilkerson, Fred Slack, and Charlie Jackson. Prettiest girl: Louise Smith, Inez Grammer, Bess Herron, Ruth Garden, Ruth Webster, Mary Carlisle, Dorothy Smith, Floy Durning, Nell Ketsdever, Mildred Douglas. Best girl sport: Louise Butler, Pearl Miller, Pearl West, Velma Inmon, Mary Jones, and Mildred Devenport. Most popular girl: Rowena Newman, Gladys Peeler, Vivian Huffaker, Maxwell Twins, " and Violet Jacob. Two hundred sixty-Jour KID PARTY AT THE COTTAGE Goodness, gracious! Didn ' t you hear about the kid party at the Cottage? Mother Miller ' s little boys entertained their little girl friends with a party from six until nine o ' clock, and no one cared if it did rain. " Slickum " was there; yes, and Little Lord Fauntelroy with Red Riding Hood and Billie were there, all having the " bestest " time. They played all kinds of jolly games, and had the most fun trying to do the Virginia Reel. Aunt Martha Williams had an awful time trying to keep the children from fighting — especially Jimmie and Jane Ellen. Yes, and they had lolly-pops and big red apples to eat all the time they were playing. And about eight o ' clock Mother Miller and Aunt Martha invited them to the dining room for — oh! more good things! When they had finished, ginger bread and cream, with a little Japanese umbrella in the middle, was served to the children. They hated to have to go, but as the girls ' mammas had said for them not to stay late, they went. STUDENT VOLUNTEER CONFERENCE The North Texas Student Volunteer Conference was held in Sherman from January 26th to 28th. Several students of our college, along with repre- sentatives from ten other colleges, enjoyed all the intellectual and spiritual feasts of the conference. As a side issue, a banquet was given on Saturday, in the banquet room of the Travis Street Methodist Church, to all the delegates. The students who represented our college were pleased with the conference and with their entertainment in the homes of the Sherman citizens. VALENTINE PARTY There is something about the magic of St. Valentine ' s day that calls forth a romantic response from the most sedate of us. The Valentine party of the Woman ' s Faculty Club was a thing to remember. The guests, upon entering the Music Hall, greeted with a festive flutter of gay red hearts that hung from doorway and mantle. The program was in harmony with the setting and the day. Miss Parrill sang " Chi Vual la Zingarello " — Paisiello, and " O Don Fatale " — Don Carlo — Verde. Miss Page read a delightful poem by Theodosia Garrison, " The Sign of the Cleft Heart. " Miss Anderson played " Spring Night " — Schumann — Liszt, and " The Trocka " — Tschaikowsky. Following these numbers, the stage was cleared and soft music announced the approach of Cupid. This agile blind boy executed a graceful dance and Two hundred sixty-five hen went to sleep behind a park bench. As is usual when Cupid is in proximity, interesting things began to happen to the strolling couples who sat on this bench. In the pantomime which followed Cupid proved himself an archer worth-s ' the best efforts of the classic poets who wrote in his behalf, and the boy and girl, the college youths. The bachelor and the spinster, as well as the colonial couple, found that the sting of his arrows brought swift and amazing results. The cast of the pantomime follows: Cupid Miss Broadfoot Boy and Girl Misses Kennedy and Stafford College youths Miss Miller and Mrs. Brown Spinster and Bachelor Mrs. Gibbs and Miss Cox Colonial Dame and Gentleman . .Mesdames Garrison and A. A. Miller RECEPTION FOR SAN MARCOS GIRLS The San Marcos girls and their coach were given an informal reception in the Girls ' Reading Room after the game on Wednesday evening, February 20th. Miss Broadfoot of the Physical Education Department was the lady of all entertainment for the evening. She led those present from introductions to games and thence to " a feast for the inner man " on ice cream and wafers. As fitted the occasion, the singing of college songs closed the evening ' s gaiety. THE BOYS ' BASKETBALL TEAM AT THE COTTAGE On Wednesday evening, Feb- ruary 28th, the girls at the Dem- onstration Cottage were hostesses to the boys ' basketball team, Mr. and Mrs. St. Clair, and Miss Broadfoot. The boys were sur- prised at finding photographs of themselves, not only at the present time, but from the dim past and in a few cases in the ' future. After At San Marcos Reception Two hundred sixty-six Basketball Banquet they " had seen themselves as others see them, " a two-course dinner was served on daintily set quartette tables. The tables were cleared for prog-ressive forty- two, but as Messrs. Knight, Snyder, and McCombs had made so many personal fouls, they were not allowed to play. Instead they were sent to the kitchen to wash dishes. " Good-night " was said after Messrs. McAllister, Ferryman, Edwards, and Knight had demonstrated further skill in the gentle art of -ocalizing. SENIOR-FACULTY GAMES The football boys need sweaters in reward for their victories of the season. Where were they to come from? The seniors and members of the faculty helped to answer the question. A challenge was sent out and accepted for two games of basketball between seniors and faculty, one by the women and one by the men. On the day of the women ' s game the faculty team appeared on the stage in their blankets, and Mr. Anderson, their manager, recounted the brilliant athletic record of each as he introduced her. Then each made a bow and threw oft her robe to show her medals and letters as she marched from the stage. The curtain next rose on a scene in a lonely graveyard while strains of a funeral dirge came from an unseen instrument. Around a certain gra " e the seniors, impersonating the faculty, were pouring forth tears, for on the tomb- Two hundred sixty-seven A I Rest in Pieces tone were these words: " At rest in pieces, " and the names of the members of the faculty team. Each mourner contributed his floral offering and the pro- cession moved slowly away. Although the gymnasium was not crowded at the games, more enthusiastic rooters could not be found. The senior girls went down in defeat, but the senior boys came back for revenge and defeated the faculty b ' a big score. The Last Phase of the Senior- Faculty Basketball Games Two hundred sixty-eight Two hundred stxly-nine SENIOR BANQUET FOR TEAMS " They say that the seniors they ain ' t got no style, " but on this occasion they were style from the rceiving line to the farewell of each guest, all because the senior girls entertained the senior boys, the faculty women ' s and the faculty men ' s basketball teams with a banquet on Friday evening, March 8th. Characteristic poses snapped during the recent Faculty-Senior games were used as place cards. The tables, forming a T, were artistically decorated with cut flowers, a miniature senior in cap and gown, and a basketball from which streamed the orange and white of the senior class. Miss Clara Cox, the toastmistress, called for impromptu speeches from both teams concerning the " dids " and the " didn ' ts " of the winning of the Senior Tom Cats game. At the end of the last course the guests joined in singing " Dear Seniors, We Love You, " and " They ' re Style All the While. " And they are. WOMEN ' S FACULTY CLUB AT HOME TO MEN OF THE FACULTY According to the men of the faculty-, the women ' s faculty club are delightful hostesses, as proved by the entertainment on Friday evening, March 9th, in the reading rooms. Misses Peggy Pender and Virginia Smith, who sat on flower-covered thrones at the door, presented favors of ' iolet buttonaires. The guests were then grouped in alphabetical families and ushered into the reading room, where they were ser X ' d a delicious buftet lunch by Irish lassies. Between courses, the program consisted of a series of short talks, in which the parts of a radio receiving set served as the central figure of speech. . ' 11 then joined in singing until time to go home. RECEPTION FOR DEBATERS The Girls ' Reading Room was the center of attraction after the local de- bating team had defeated a isiting team from Simmons College on Frida - night, April 7th. The recc])tion was cjuite informal, e ' eryone talking with every other one, trying to show the Simmons boys that we appreciate having such friends as our guests. With L ' lys Knight as leader and Wilton W. Cook at the piano, groups gathered around and sang the songs old and dear to each heart, with a few new tunes thrown in for encores. " Sheriff " and Mrs. Johnson, assisted by Willis Floyd and Frank Johnston, are to be complimented for having made the entertainment " grand and glorious. " Punch was served throughout the evening. Two hundred seventy Two hundred sevcnly-one INFORMAL LUNCHEON FOR DEBATERS Mr. E. F. Miller and Mr. Gordon Weir, intercollegiate debaters from Simmons College, and their coach, Mr. Campbell, were the guests of the Ora- torical Association at an informal luncheon in the C. L A. Cafeteria. The visiting team was met at the station by a reception committee and escorted to C. L A., where they were joined by members of the Association, Misses Garrison, Page, and Cox, and Messrs. Compton, Price, Jones, Ashburn, Johnson, Dawson, and Selvidge. After the luncheon, the party was shown through the college, and later carried on a sight-seeing tour of the city. LEGISLATORS AT THE COLLEGE Representatives E. D. Dunlap of Kingsville, Eugene Blount of Nacogdoches, and A. J. McKeaon of Prairie Lea, composing a subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, were visitors of the North Texas State Teachers ' College on an inspection regarding the budget of the College for the next biennium. They spoke in chapel and were later guests at a luncheon served by the Home Economics Department. A few days afterwards a subcommittee, composed of W. C. Edwards of Denton, Lee J. Rountree of Bryan, Lee Satterwhite of Panhandle, and Frank D. Potter of Ft. Worth, were introduced to the students in a special assembly. At the conclusion of short talks made by the visitors, all joined in paying a tribute to Mr. W. C. Edwards for his effective help in securing a $300,000 appro- priation for a new Administration building. INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE MEET A two days ' meet for the Eighth District of the Interscholastic League, attended by about six hundred high schools representing several different coun- ties, was held at the Normal College. Forest Avenue High School of Dallas won the class A track and field meet. Strawn and Central High of Ft. Worth tied for second and third places, and Bryan High of Dallas won fourth place. In the class B di ision Garland, Dallas County, took first place. In the tennis tournament Oak Clift won the boys singles and doubles championship. Lewisville won in the final debates for girls, and Palo Pinto in the finals foi boys. In declamation Highland Park won for senior girls. Weatherford for junior boys and Highland Park of junior girls. Garner school of Parker County won first place in all rural declamations.

Txvo hundred eighty-three (hi preface Perhaps our book is not so grand looking as Mr. Ross ' s Yucca, but we feel that it has a lot of grand bunk in it, which makes up for its many other deficiencies. Anyway we do not want to leave the im- pression that we are apologizing, for that is not our style of literature. Now, we guess a lot of you are wondering why in the name of Van Zandt County we have published a book like this. We have a suspicion, too, that a good many of you are thinking that you look a darn sight better sitting up in a fine picture in Mr. Ross ' s Yucca than you do as you are portrayed in our book, and that we have not given you a fair deal. We recognize all of this, however, as the perfectly natural feelings of all simple-minded people, and we ha ' e few object ions to your feeling that way about it. As Luke Methuslah says, " Almost enybody ' s got a right to a few opinions. " But we are forgetting what we started out to do in this preface, and we really do not want to digress too far, for we feel it our duty as conscientious Normalites to explain our purpose in the publication of " The Spanish Dagger, " or the " Yucca — True to Life. " We had noticed for some time that there were a number of guys and dames around this institution that were in sad need of something to pre •ent their thinking too highly of themselves, and so, being souls of a tender and sacrificing nature, we conceived of the lofty purpose of col- lecting material and arranging a book that would meet this need. Now do not misunderstand us. We do not blame you because there is such a need, for even the Eagle Basketball Team needed a good licking before they could muster any pep for the 1923 season. We now wish to suggest that you get yourself in a serious state of mind and be as a soul eager for a lesson taught by some great pro- fessor.

Chapellite GENERAL PREFACE:— This is an attempt to leave with all who have within tlieir hearts a profound affection for and appreciation of the privilege of making the tri-weekly pilgrimage to Chapel a memoir of this beloved rite and ceremony. INTRODUCTION: — This play has a repeated history, being acted three times each week. It may be rightfully called the Alpha and Omega of a student ' s life at the North Texas State Normal College. CHAPELLE Time: Any Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday from ten to ten- thirty A. M. Place: The College Barn. The scene opens with the fifteen hundred Normalites slowly gathering, gloomily trying to be seated in the thousand seats. On the rostrum the Faculty of the College are solemnly draped — all looking more or less bored, but managing to carry on a lively conversation among themselves. Mr. Looney rushes in looking neither to the right nor to the left. Mr. Looney: — (Pounding on the bell, while Dr. Bruce paces back and forth across the stage impatiently fumbling his watch chain.) — Sit down. SIT DOWN! All those who can ' t find seats kindly remain standing. Now, please give me your undivided attention. It is absolutely against the rules of this Institution to make any announce- ments from this platform. Bulletin boards have been provided for this purpose, and you are expected to use them. Will the Sophomores give attention to the reading of this very important announcement, and kindly act accordingly. " All Sophs please meet in A-27 to make plans for a possum huht. " Signed by the president of the class, JMr. Ulys Knight. Let us turn to hymn number two and sing three Dr. Bruce: — (Interrupting) — Sing only one verse. I want to talk. (Wilton Cook takes his place at the piano, jazzily playing " Holy, Holy, Holy. " The Normalites rise at Miss Parrill ' s command. A few joined her in the rendering of the hymn.) Two hundred eighty-seven !; Mr. Looney: — (Wildly tapping bell). Remain standing for a few (! words of prayer led by Mr. Swenson. After the prayer I have asked ( ' ,[ Dr. Bruce to speak a few words to you. I bespeak for him your careful III and considerate attention. Dr. Bruce: — Now get quiet, get quiet! I ' d like to read you a f ew verses this morning, and make you a much needed talk on a subject of that kind, but I feel that there are other things that demand our attention at present. Now, I am president of this Institution, under a ten thousand dollar bond to see that the school is manipulated along the right and proper channel. A girl came to my office this week and wanted me to return her two dollar hospital fee because she had not been in the hospital this year. I told that girl that I ' d never recommend her for a position in any school. Why, a girl with no more love than that for her fellowman ought never to be given a place as teacher of the children of our State. I pay my two dollar fee (gesticulating with his hand for emphasis). That brings me to something else that I wanted to speak about. You pay only twenty-one dollars to come to this school, and I fear you all do not appreciate what that twenty-one dollars gets for you. You get your tuition in this school for nine months; you get your textbooks; you get your laboratory material (waxing eloquent), you get your athletic ticket, which admits you to all games played on our field; you get the Campus Chat every week; you get the use of the Liljrary books, and you get all of your instruction. Getting all of this at such a low cost there is no excuse for any young man or any young woman not getting a cer-tif-i-cate and becoming an upright, efficient citizen. Now, about Chapel attendance. I have noticed of late that there is a decided falling off in Chapel attendance. As you all know, we are in sad need of a new auditorium, which the Legis- lature has promised to us. Any day now I am looking for some very noted visitors. When they come I want them to see that our students are deserving of a new place for their Chapel exercises. If we do not have a full house these influential gentlemen will go away with the impression that this school does not need a new building. Les us all co-operate in this matter, and see if we can ' t bring about some note- worthy results. Mr. Looney: — (Suddenly waking up). I ' m sure you all appreciate Dr. Bruce ' s inspiring talk. I hope that you will all live nobler lives having heard him. Miss Cox now wishes to make an important an- nouncement. Miss Cox: — (Making an effort to be heard in the back of the Chapel). Miss of Dallas will meet all Baptist students in the girls ' reading room at four-thirty this afternoon. (Groans and sighs from the conscientious Baptist students). Two hundred eighty-eight Dr. Bruce: — I just want to add a few words to Miss Cox ' s announce- ment. The Y. W. C. A. does an excellent piece of work, and I want you all to patronize it. That reminds me that you all should join the Red Cross. I am a member m -self (proudly displaying red cross button), and I never regret a single dollar that I spent in that wa Mr. Blair: — (Coming forward showing all his dignity). I wish to make an announcement concerning the Lyceum numl er which will be presented on this stage next Monday evening. Bring your activity tickets and come early. Dr. Bruce: — I forgot to say that the twenty-one dollar fee admits you to every Lyceum number that appears on this platform. These performances would cost you anywhere from one to three dollars and more anywhere else you could see them. For instance, Mrs. Bruce and I spent about seven dollars apiece going to Dallas to see Helen Keller. When she came here it cost you scarcely nothing. These Lyceum numbers are worth your while and you get a bargain in them. Mr. Loojiey: — (Tapping bell to quite restless students). Miss Clark and MissSmith ha e asked me to announce that they wish to meet all girls this time tomorrow in this room. This announcement comes from the Deans of Women and is of vital interest to every girl in school. Let the Faculty pass first, please. (The stage is slowly emptied). Now, the students in the rear section may pass. (A mad rush is made for the doors and the students from the rear sections push and scramble frantically. Mr. Looney waves his hand to keep the students in the front section from joining the mob. In the meantime Wilton Cook has resumed his place at the piano and is playing " To-morrow " with all the force and speed of his mighty nature. Finally the students in the front section are dismissed. Quiet again reigns in the chapel). DOORS CLOSE Hanging on the sun-dial, Sitting in a car. Drinking at the fountain, That ' s what this College ' s for.

We, ourselves feel that they are not quite worthy of so much attention, but we believe that could you, kind reader, have seen the pitiful grief of the committee which pre- sented to us the petition of the faculty requesting a place for faculty pictures in our book, we belie ' e that even the most stern-hearted of you would have, like we, relented and granted them the coveted space. However that may be, we think it not quite wise or fair to publish the preceding page without some kind of explanation. Some of the members of the faculty are going to feel hurt because their pictures do not appear, and we fear that there are going to be a number of tears shed by some of the slighted ones, especially by men like Dr. Neff and Fonts, who do not well conceal their emotions. Therefore, we now offer the following explanations: Dr. Neff, being the proud possessor of one Emily, age six months, refused to have his picture made unless he should be allowed to hold in his arms that said daughter. The authors of this book considered it a serious breach of etiquette to place Emily ' s picture among those of the faculty, especially since she is too young to defend herself and to protect her fair and unblemished name. Thus you see why Dr. Neff ' s picture does not appear. As to the omission of Mr. Fonts ' picture we have only a bare word of expla- nation. The picture was made, and in the hands of the authors, when it suddenly disappeared. We do not feel privileged to make any charges. However, we think it our duty to say that we saw Mr. Blair looking at the picture with longing eyes and we are all aware that he is making a garden this spring. Misses Garrison and Page will probably feel that the omission of their pictures was meant for a direct insult to them. They will surely understand that this is not true when we explain that there is not room on the page to include their lung capacities, and we felt that any kind of representation of them which failed to reveal these said capacities would be incomplete. We would have gladly used a picture of Mr. Newton on this page (he is one of our favorites), but we found that the page was not long enough to include more than half of that gentlemen ' s longevity. Miss Morley ' s picture does not appear i)ecause of the fact that when the photographer went to her to take her picture she had lost her voice, due to a bad cold, and was too modest to ha e a picture made without it. (We do censure her.) Two hundred ninety-one Most humbly do we beg the pardon of Misses Hornbeak and SpiUman for their pictures not appealing. We had them sedately located in the lower left- hand corner of the page, satchels included, when along came Dad Swenson on his bicycle. Having been angered beforehand because we had insisted that his bicycle should not appear in the picture, he ran over these two humble ladies knocking them entirely off the page. He was headed straight for Mrs. Gibbs, and Miss Anderson and Parrill when a " Broadfoot " was able to stop him. Not having a round open space on the page, we are sorry to have to offer our apologies to Mr. Leggett. We would have liked very much to have included in this noteworthy group a picture of Miss Sweet. We had her placed directly to the left of Mr. Farrington. When he learned of this, he objected to a " take off " on Fisher ' s " Mutt and Jeff. " We thought Mr. Farrington ' s objections rather unreasonable, and strongly considered omitting his picture instead of Miss Sweet ' s. However, on further consideration, we decided in favor of Mr. Farrington. We were in- fluenced in our decision mainly by the fact that he holds the distinction of being the only professor who possesses a graceful impediment on his upper lip. Messrs. Burk, Crutsinger, Craig, and Turner were almost as obstinate as Dr. Neff in insisting upon family groups. After a very short consideration we judged them all ineligible. We were particularly anxious for a picture of Miss Duggan. We were unable to secure this, for every time we sent the photographer to take this picture she was out of town. As for the absence of other pictures, we must frankly tell you that we could scarcely afTord to waste any more time or space with material of this sort. HOW TO GET ALONG WITH CERTAIN TEACHERS Tell Mr. Looney you enjoyed the chapel exercise. Compliment Miss Garrison ' s new dresses. Ask Mr. Blair about his little grandchild. Buy Dad Pender a cigar. Dress artistically for Miss Stafford ' s classes. Laugh at Mr. Brown ' s favorite joke. Give Miss Clark some money for the lodge. Agree with Mr. Compton on all historical questions. Accept the fact that you were once a monkey for Miss Cleveland and Miss Duggan. Be on time for Mr. Masters. Two hundred ninety-two aaato jUaterialg Freshman Hoboes FRESHMAN CLASS A Freshman class is a necessary one in any college, and although we would like to send this book to press with no mention of anything devoid of honor, we are seeking to make this book true to life and are consequently giving to the public the bad as well as the good in our institution. The picture above is a little misleading, for the Freshmen were " dressed up " especially for this picture, in order that they might appear as well as possible. Like all other college Freshman they came here last fall looking like the last act in a Kraz - Kat Cartoon, and so far they look very little better. When we told the Freshmen that we wanted to take a picture of them for " The Spanish Dagger " they all asked for time to go home and don their " Sunday garbs " before their beauty should be everlastingly imprinted on the pages of history. Just at this point two upper- classmen came up filled with a desire to prevent disgrace falling upon the College, and volunteered to arrange for the upper classes to dress the Freshmen as fittingly as possibly for the occasion. Thus we turned the problem over to these noble seniors and juniors and the above is the result of their efforts. We want to commend their work for they really achieved a remarkable impro -ement, which far surpassed our hopes and expectations knowing as we did the character of the material thev had to work with. Two liitiidrcd iiiin ' lv-lhree CONCERNING CLASSES JUNIORS: — On the whole, they would pass muster in a first class college and consequently deserve no mention in this book. SOPHOMORES: — We do not need to mention them — they will tell you how important thev are. FIRST AND ' SECOND YEAR:— Neither good, bad, nor indifferent— mereh- oung. They are still meek and unassuming, and because of this they merit few hard blows and we do not wish to be the first to hurt them. A STUDENT ' S DaEAn. B.

Haven ' t I told you that the only way to learn Spanish is to study it? Haven ' t I been teaching you three years? Wy — honey — child! You make me ashamed of myself. You just won ' t work. Jack, that ' s what ' s the matter with you. You ' re a good bo ' but you just can ' t learn Spanish. I guess you ' re just lazy. I don ' t know what young folks mean these days. Wy when I was a child I never thought anything about having to go to school and studying hard when I got there.

The following is printed exactly as it was turned in to us by these worthy gentlemen.) When Lord Stabem asked us to make a few statements in regard to " Being an Athlete " we was overcame by the responsiljility. and at first refused the job. However, not wishing to ever deprive nobody of a few good ideas that we have gleaned as we have passed through a lot of classes, we decided we would say a few words in as brief manner as possible. Sometimes we think it a pretty hard lilow to be born an athlete, for if they is anybody that has a mean road it ' s him. (Of course they is a few compensa- tions.) Now, here in the Normal things ain ' t no different than they are in other colleges, but on the whole we acknowledge, for the sake of being polite, that we gets a pretty fair deal. Among these uplifting statements we would like to slide in a little propa- ganda — not that no one has asked us to — and say a few words regarding what we think ought to come about some time before we send our children back to this college to make an athletic record. What we wants to see is the Blenket Tax raised a notch or two and enough handed over to the athletic board to keep us muchly abused and petted so-called athletes from having to beg for sweaters. So far as we ha -e any right to a feeling in the matter, we wouldst rather freeze to death for lack of school support (in the form of a " T " sweater) than to have to ask each student in the school to gi e a quarter so that " our boys " can have sweaters. If these are extravagances which the school can ' t afford in order to give a good athlete a little inducement for encouraging his parents to choose this school for him, then we guess we had better let the whole thing drop and send all of our good athletes to some first-class college like C. I. A. We now feels called upon to take this opportunity to thank the students tor the loyal support they have gave the teams when they were called upon to pay a twenty-five cent admission fee to the games. We, with our own eyes, saw three students present at one game and five at another, but one of our brothers in training swears solemnly that he has saw as many as seven at one game. We is deeply grateful Irvan West, Dan McAlister, and Guv Davidson. Two hundred ninely-snen THE JOKES InCI S THE " C MyAPU3 11 1 ALWAY5 ?mw m 7 1 CAMPUS CHAT Mr. Theo Mahler, the editor of the Campus Chat, thinks that few things are more important around the college than his publication. Perhaps he is right — at any rate, we are willing to concede that his paper serves us so well that we no longer are compelled to read our Sunday school lessons e ' ery week. The authors of " The Spanish Dagger " have always been very careful not to express any personal opinions, but we do feel called upon at present to herald to the world one conclusion that is the result of much research and study. This conclusion is that had Glenn Balch, editor of Campus Chat during the summer and fall terms of 1922, been allowed to put out the kind of paper that would have met with his own lofty ideals, the students at least would have fought madly over the weekly issue of a hot number full of real stuff. Forgive us if we seem to be presuming, but for the sake of our college we beg to be allowed to ask one question. We merely want to know which is considered more important in a college paper. College News or Advertisements from the local merchants. This question comes to us when we see the Chat more than half filled with information concerning the wares of Denton ' s business men. We look in vain for some little joke. Some one suggests that they have all been printed under the adds. We weep. Being rather conceited in regard to their general mental ability, the Lord Stabem and Lady Swatem now offer for the good of those that will endeavor to edit the Campus Chat in the future the following as an example of a paper worthy of the college: Two hundred ninety-eighl CAMPUS CATS Volume — 1,000 cu. metres of gas.

His subject was " The Failure of The Students To H nroll For The Campus Course During The Spring Term. " He urged the students to realize the im- portance of this work, and if it was necessan, ' for them to drop some other course in order to take Campustry to do so. He made a touching appeal when he described the campus as it appears in the spring with its empty seats and its death-like stillness. " If, " he said, " something is not done to correct them, the present conditions will con- tinue to grow worse until at the end of the Spring Term all Campustry classes will be dispensed with. " We heartily endorse Mr. Brown ' s remarks, and as stu- dents, realizing the worth of the Campus course to our curri- culum, we wish to express our thanks to Mr. Brown and to Guy Davidson and Mary Sprowl for the earnest effort they ha e made to keep this work alive.

One of the hottest contests of the last ten years was closed last Saturday when the votes were counted and Mr. Hungry Huggins was proclaimed vice- president of the North Texas State Teacher ' s College.

We attribute Mr. Huggins ' success to the fact that he was manager of his own cam- paign, and was thus in a position to convince every- one of his many accomplish- ments and of his great capacity for new accomplish- ments. P eling so deeply the truth of these things, Mr. Huggins made some very emotional speeches during the campaign, and we think that he, at least, was thor- oughly convinced that he was the right man for the place. HOSPITAL NOTES. The following students, wishing to escape classes, exams, and other difficulties, have visited the hospital the last week: Warhorse Bran- nan, Dorothy Smith, Man- eater Clements, Fern Clark, Vivian Simpson, and Chicken Ferryman. They extend to those going to classes their deepest sympathies. SOCIETY NEWS. There isn ' t any. In explanation of this fact the society editor wishes to state, with no intentions of wounding, that the A. E. F. club must have killed all the ' possums in the surrounding country last year, and, as a consequence, they have failed to have their usual quota of social functions. They have left the poor society editor in the lurch. Start up the old stunts again — we have lots of space to waste. COME! COME! COME! See the FREE show in the Heavens. — Mr. .Swenson.

Three hundred SHORTER HOURS FOR TEACHERS Last Wednesday morning at chapel period the students of Dr. Bruce ' s college met in the Coliseum to discuss a resolution drawn up by a committee composed of Dutch Hansard, Fred Slack, and Mary Jones. The resolu- tion as approved by the com- mittee read as follows: " Whereas, through the diligence of certain sym- pathetic students it has been brought to the attention of the student body that since the year 1913, and probably prior thereto, the members of the faculty ' of this college have been compelled to rise at eight o ' clock and labor continuously until two-thirty P. M. in the discharge of their duties in behalf of this body; Whereas, the necessity for the immediate relief of such an inhumane situation is im- perative; Whereas, the members of the faculty have been diligent in their efforts to secure re- lief; and Whereas, Dr. Bruce has lent his hearty endorsement to the contemplated action of the student body to render justice unto the afiiicted, Therefore: Be it resolved, that the student body of this college hereby consent to sacrifice a few hours that have been daily devoted to recitations, in order that the members of the faculty may procure the rest and recreation necessary to restore them to a normal, mental and physical con- dition; and beginning with this date, we hereby adopt a new schedule granting unto them the privilege of report- ing for duty at ten o ' clock and ceasing their labors at ten-thirty to resume them again from one o ' clock until one-thirty, at which time they may be released for the day. " The resolution being read, discussions were in order. Miss Colleen Stanley, dressed in the hurried fashion necessary to the limited time the teachers have to give to personal adornment, and worn out from three one-hour classes, presented her appeal in behalf of the teachers. The students were moved by the sad picture. Mr. Guy Davidson then opposed the resolution, declaring that the pupils could not give up their class periods at any cost. His speech was quickly an- swered by Mr. Johnny ' erner who declared that the sacrifice should and must be made. The chapel period bell was not even heard in the excite- ment and in the roar of applause which followed this noble speech. Miss Marjorie Pitts was announced as the last speaker. She did not consider the situation in- humane. Order was finally restored and a motion was made that a vote be taken. The first vote was against the resolu- tion, but the chairman did not consider it final. Mr. Fred Slack made a touching speech expressing keen disap- pointment in the vote. A new vote was called, which resulted in a tie. About this time Mr. Chester Jarrell arrived at the meeting and was asked to decide the vote. In silent expectation the audience held its breath while, slowly and with an effort, Mr. Jarrell, realizing the seriousness of the occasion made the sacrifice and voted in favor of the resolution. Silence reigned a moment, but was broken by an ap- plause which shook the stately Coliseum. Therefore, we do solemnly state that the resolution stands as read, and will go into effect one week from today. Apply to me if you desire to know what size shoes any of the girls wear. — Rav McKen ie. For information concern- ing life insurance and its benefits see — Joe Skidmore.

EAGLES FINALLY WIN VICTORY On last Thursday the Eagle baseball team, of which Mr. Leonard Ma.xie is no longer captain, played against the big nine from Argyle. The score was a tie up to the fourteenth inning when Mr. Wilton Cook, world ' s famous pinch hitter, was substituted for I. B. Griffith. He hit the first ball pitched over the fence for a home run, thus winning the day for the Eagles. This is the teams bi-century victory.

And you kept praying that the pro- gramme would be some music, or something funn -, and you kept fearing that instead it would be some Chinese, some Professor of Education, or some Northern Explorer lec- turing just like it was the time before, and the time before, and the time before that. And when you got there and saw a Chink sitting on the platform you began to get hot under the collar, and to look at your girl, who was already yawning in her handkerchief. ' Member how hard you tried not to go to sleep, and how you kept looking at ' our watch and trying your best not to squirm the new creases out of your best suit? ' Member when it was finally over and you rushed your girl out of the auditorium, and how she wouldn ' t speak a the wa ' home? And when you said good-b -e to her, how she said " mean old thing " and turned and slammed the door. ' Member how you swore you ' d never go to any old Lyceum number again and that if that ' s getting educated ' ou didn ' t want any of it. Say fellers, ' member? YE FISH (YE GODS) An ignorant little Freshman Had an awful time at school, Couldn ' t learn the books. Couldn ' t learn the rules, Couldn ' t learn the teachers, Forgot the deans were there. Oh! — poor little Freshman! They didn ' t treat him fair. Went before the council Said " I ' m ignorant of the law. " But the bloomin council Only gave him the Hee-Haw. Told the little Freshman To go home to his ma-ma. Three hundred six THEM DAYS IS GONE FOREVER! Jack London was a ladies ' man (the girls will tell you wHn ' ). My Hero Lad! they used to say, and look at him and sigh; But just at Christmas word got out " Jack married last July! " THEM DAYS IS GONE FOREVER! There was a time when hazing was not rare, The Freshman ' s life was full of woe and loaded down with care Then Prexy spake in thunder tones — " Touch not a single hair! " THEM DAYS IS GONE FOREVER! The curfew at the Normal tolled the knell of parting day. The youth bade farewell to the maid and madly rushed away; But that was nineteen twenty-two — such things are now passe! THEM DAYS IS GONE FOREVER! When good King Arthur ruled the land and gallant knights were bold One Ulys and his lady fair upon the campus strolled; But W ' elta ' s gone — we miss the scenes we knew in da s of old. THEM DAYS IS GONE FOREVER! There was a time when rooters at the game were few And all the students stayed away except a boy or two, But with admission free — there came a different iew. THEM DAYS IS GONE FOREVER! ACCEPT OUR APOLOGIES We have heard some of the authorities bragging, in " the face of influential company, " about the maturity and seriousness of the student body. We agree with this, all right. Why shouldn ' t these said students be mature? Most of them have been teaching fifty years before they enter college. Knowing this no one could doubt that they are a serious bunch — that is what makes " College Life " so exciting and this section of the Yucca such a serious problem. Mr. McCloud: I am sorry I was late to your class again. Miss Shook. I ' ll be here on time Friday or bust. Miss Shook: I ' ll assure yon of one thing, Mr. McCloud. If yt)u ' re not here on time you ' re sure to bust, bul I ' ll lie the one to do the busting. Three hundred seven Three Iniiiilred eight ELECTION OF COLLEGE FAVORITES We hope everyone will be satisfied with the choice we have made of the students whom we have considered worthy of a home in the College Favorite Country Club. Some of them were chosen because we liked them, some of them because we liked their pictures, and some of them because we felt as if they belonged where we placed them. We think Mr. Ross ' s " beauty section " a thing of real beauty (especially Mr. Knight ' s hair), and we rather like the custom of having an election of this kind in the school. In the first place, it gives us a chance to see how really very sweet some girls can be and what good sports some boys can be if they think you are undecided and might vote for them. Then, too, an election of this kind gives us an opportunity of learning that some of our boys and girls have real " Sunday clothes, " in which they look very decent, and that their hair is not utterly unmanageable after all. Some boys have been known to even go so far as to wash their faces and to use Stacombe, while the girls have added a new layer to their faces (thanks to the one-cent sale at Curtis ' Drug Store) and put some new wrinkles in their hair. We guess some of you were disappointed in the outcome of Mr. Ross ' s election — that is the pity of it all. However, we can ' t say that wc were. We know one little girl that might have been elected to a certain place had she not, in her sophomore year after she had had some of the external " little-townness " brushed off of her, felt too high and mighty to speak to the freshman country ginks from her home town, whom she had known and played with all her life. Lettuce pray have peas!! CARD OF THANKS The Yucca takes this opportunity for thanking the following for their services on the staff: Ulys Knight for letting us understand at an early date that he preferred to have others assume the responsibility for his section ; Lorine Williams for leaving before making further costly mistakes; Louise Smith for furnishing us an excellent chance of disco ering hidden talent in art; Wilton Cook for afTording next year ' s College Life editor an opportunity for preparing a better section than this ' ear ' s with no planning; Essie Ball for being thoughtful enough never to add to the crowded condition of the Yucca office. Jack London says marriage has meant a lot of change for him, and has taken a lot of change out of his pockets. (Katherine must have that famous feminine touch). Three hundred nine trito ST.

As a reward for his devotion to duty during registration days, Mr. Looney won the reputation of being the " most hardboiled " teacher in school. Miss Powell lost two nights ' sleep because she forgot to schedule a boy for physical education. Miss Hornbeak made one hundred schedules for new students during the between-terms vacation. Mr. McConnell solved a thousand problems for as many different students, concerning courses, and schedules during the holidays. HEARD ON HOBO DAY Youngster: — Hey, you! Are you a Freshman?

Three hundred eleven THE SENIOR COMPAIGNYE Whan that Septembre with its cool days soote The laziness of summer hath perced to the roote, So pricketh hem habit in hir corages That seniors long to goon on pilgrimages. To Dr. Bruce ' s Normal good many seniors meke A precious sheep skin paper for to seke To holpen hem whan they begin to teeche The many little children in her reeche. Bifel that thus in ninteen twenty-two I wounde My way to Denton, where I founde A goodly compaignye of sundry folk Eager for to bear a senior ' s yoke. Shortly had I spoken with hem e ' erichon That I was of hir fellowshipe anon. Me thinketh it acordant to resoun To telle you al the condicion Of some of hem, so as it seemed to me Which longen so for a degree. A youth ther was, and that a worthy man That at the lime he first began To come to school, he loved curteisye And was chosen lord of all the compaignye. So well he played upon a coronete So blacken was his hair like jete That a maiden fell in lo e with him And sadly made his glory dim. This youth that promised so much chi alrye Was called by the name of Tampake. Of girls there were a number of somdel merye. Our Berta had hair as reede as the cherye. Inez the flirt had hair more like the inke. And on her chekes was always seen the pinke. Ota B and Laura too were in the compaignye Whose wisdom most was in the cookerye. A sweet young blond there was with us Who but for Math, would make no fuss; Mary Alice always held her head so high She seldom spake to us when passing by. With us ther was a man of somne age, Of no one needed he to be afraid. For he was a man of portly stature With a right merye and gentil nature. Of his ancestors he would talk so long That we ' d like to stop him with a song. Three hundred twelve Natheles so well was liked he by the college That P. M. was made a teacher of the knowledge. A wop ther was, a member of the groupe Who was called Dago by the troupe. Of stature he was somdel short of lengthe But in athletics he portrayed great strengthe Of sense of humor he was so much without That he was seldom clept a real good scout. But natheles he was so little and so sweete That to teasen him was most a pitie. A younge man was there with the crowde That of himself would always boast most loude. He had some talent for to draw, But not enough to cause great awe. So tall he was and very, very thin. The name of Hungry on him did we pin. Among the numbre was a ' Outh most wys. With curley hair, and deep brown eys. Respected was he by all the troope. And elected was he editor of the " Yucce. " Altho he had some temper for to spare His patience was a thinge moste rare. Our gentil Austin was of some renoun, Who wound his way to us from Princetoun. Ther wer a grete numbre in our partie, But of hem al I can not writie. For ' twould take many a page and verse To tell about hem e x-richon both good and werse. And now I think I muste write no more, For perhaps the - now are somdel sore. Now by my trouthe, if that I shall not lye, I ne saugh this yeer, so mery a compaignye At once in Dr. Bruce ' s College as is now. And fayn would I shew you al, wiste I how. So, well woot as ye goon on your weye. That you may stop from work, and do a little pleye. To say you more I do not nede. So now I wish you al " God-spede. " Three hundred thirteen WE WONDER Why Mr. St. Clair thinks it is more important for him to go to Arkansas with the De Molays than it is for him to see his own team play. This makes us wonder why the Eagles won against Austin College when Mr. St. Clair had gone to Arkansas. Why Dave Edwards always so flatly refuses to work in the Yucca ofifice on Saturday- nights. Wh - Terence Myracle was so glad to leave Open-House on Saturday- night to do some typing on the Yucca. Why Gwendolyn Cassidy takes people only by storm. Why Dan McAlister can ' t go with a girl without the report getting out that he is engaged to her. Why Mrs. Mitchell keeps her husband with her at the Demonstration Cottage. Does it mean that he well have to do work of this kind in the future? We wonder, too, if it was in the Demonstration Cottage that he learned to handle a bat with so much grace. Why Robert Tampke and Wilton Cooke were too busy to take parts in a senior play but immediately accepted the same parts in the same play when the Dramatic Club asked them to. Why Essie Ball felt called upon to make three -isits to the Yucca office after she was elected Associate Editor. If Willis Floyd knows that we are not all gifted with a -ocubulary or an understanding like Macaulay ' s. Why Charles Langford always chooses twins as his girls. How Leon Camp managed to get credit for the age requirements when he entered college. How long it would take Lloyd Vickers to walk a mile. If Mr. Blankenship got a position in Denton because he feared that the Reagans could not get along without him. How Clarence Bicknell managed to live in his surroundings a year without being influenced. Three hundred fourteen Three hundred fifteen ELECTION OF YUCCA STAFF CAPS THE CLIMAX As the 1923 Yiicra goes to press we are overcome by the heat of the election for the 1924 Yucca Staff, which is now in progress. How can a school be so reckless! How can a school afford to waste so much time, money and deep thought in choosing a staff that will have to spend only $5,000, and that will have to spend only six months out of nine getting out the book! Surely this is not a serious matter, and surely it does not merit any attention from the students. How wasted to us seems all of the time spent in advertising the election, and in educating the students as to what they are voting for and why! We cannot but make some protest against such waste. We would like to suggest the kind of election that we think would be entirely fitting to a matter of so little importance. Let the election be set for Thursday from 1 :.30 to 3:30 by the Council. At 10:30 on Thursday morning let the name of the candidates be posted, this being the first time that the name of the candi- dates are made public. Have it absolutely against the law of the school for any campaigning to be done on the grounds that the candidate would be an able staff member. Advise all of the students that they are to judge the candidates on the following points: looks, athletic prowess, and ability to wear a pleasant smile while the election is in progress. Let there be no noise of battle! Do not misunderstand us by thinking that the above is exactly as we wish the election to be held. It is far from perfect according to our views, but in the face of the present exciting election, we feel that what would suit us is too ideal to be considered by the school at this time. If we could have it just as we would most desire, we would have some person in no way connected with this school and its activities blind-folded and placed before the assembly of students. He should be given a hatful of small rocks, around each of which should be tied the name of some section of the Yucca. He would throw these rocks promiscuously into the crowd, and the students catching the rocks should be proclaimed editors of that section of the Yucca the name of which appears on their rock. Dr. Bruce, meeting staggering youth: " Drunk again, my boy? " E. W. Creen: " That ' s nothing. So am I. It has been reported that Berta Nutt and Inez Jones are contemplating a divorce. We wonder if Berta ' s acceptance of a position on the Yucca Staff has any- thing to do with it. Three hundred sixteen ?l TOO LATE TO CLASSIFY Mr. Odam was supposed to have been placed among the faculty pictures over in the first of the Yucca. Mr. Ross tells us that he used all of his charms trying to get Mr. Odam to hand in a photo- graph for that section but failed. However, thinking that we should have his picture in this year ' s Yucca, we went to the trouble to have the Manual Training Department to saw this one off a last year ' s cut. G. A. ADAM Education The last marriage: Mary Creswell and Dean Davis. The following are scarcely ever more than fifteen minutes late to all appoint- ments: Ruth Crawford, Eugene McCloud Dorothy Mills P. P. Dawson Julia Smith Jack Gale Dorothv Robine The following faculty babies: George Crutsinger, Jr. Emily Neff Robert Turner Baby Willard Red Mizell, Jr. Frenchy Anderson, Jr. This picture was turned in to Mr. Ross for the Training School section. He did not consider il suitable for the place, but we fail to understand y. TJie Project Three hundred sevenleen X.VkxV VVkL. Wvfvv .m s ' 0 w iv« last thejL ' nd of our task is in sight: obstanes ha e been overcome, or sidestepped, and the success or faikire of the 1923 Yucca is already made. We started out determined to compile for you an annual of which you would be proud. As time passed by we met many disappointments. Much that we had planned could not be accomplished. When we started the job, we were in- experienced and no one knows better than we how dearly we have paid in work and in disappointments for this fact. In putting out this annual, it has been our endeavor to insert a record of every in(li iduars activity, based upon all available data. We realize that the record is incomplete; still we feel that in this Yucca will be found the keynote of many fond memories that will serve the indi ' idual in the years to come. We have watched other longed-for goals fade before the requirements of the Yucca work. To the teachers who have made any allowances for our handicaps we are truly grateful, and against the others we hold no ill feeling. For those who have assisted us in this work we have a sincere appreciation- Without Miss Sweet, who was e ' er willing to sacrifice time and pleasure, we hardly believe we could have finished the job. We are also very much indebted to Miss Stafford and Mrs. Gibbs, who stood ever ready to assist us in our art work. But it is all n -er now, and as for the book itself you are to render the final verdict. The road has been hard and long, and no doubt we have turned the wrong way many times. But we hope that you will understand and forgive the mistakes we have made. If the book as a whole is what you expected of it, if the good points overshadow the lilunders, then we feel that the Yucca is a success. Be it as it may, it is with mingled pleasure and regret that we write these last words and go seek a campus bench to await your verdict when you have read the book.

Surely there is something besides ex- cellent printing and binding, faithful per- formance of contract, and intelligent co-operation, that draws, year after year, more annual staffs of the large univer- sities and colleges " into the fold " of the Hugh Stephens Press. Perhaps it is, as one visiting editor expressed it, our " ideal organization working in an ideal plant, ideally located, " that gives character to the annuals we produce. The orchid, rarest of flowers, is produced only when all conditions are favorable to its growth. The near-perfection of Kraft Built annuals is the result of careful craftsmanship under ideal conditions. The " Hugh Stephens Press folks " know what an annual staff is up against. Our Service Department renders e.xpert assistance as part of our printing contract, and supplies the staffs with a complete system of blank forms, together with a handsome ninety-page Manual Guide dealing with the latest methods in advertising campaigns, business and editorial systems for College Annual production. Helpful advice and ideas are given on art work for Opening Pages, Division Sheets, Borders and special sections, combining Kraft Built bindings, inks and papers into beautiful and artistic books— SUCCESSFULLY EDITED AND FINANCED.

Perhaps you are not yet married, but what about the wife and children of the future? It is very easy to put off 9i ch matters until new responsibilities force you into it. You must remember that new responsibilities are expensive. Banks, large corporations, and business men think more of the young man who is Well Insured. It gives you a better credit, a better standing in your com- munity, and more Self Respect. YOUNG MAN, WHY NOT PROTECT THE FAMILY OF THE FUTURE, NOW? The Southwestern Insurance Qompany " A Home Company " Southwestern Life Building DALLAS, TEXAS P. S. Selling life insurance is a pleasant and profitable business. There are hundreds of school teachers in the Southwest who handle life in- surance as a side line, thereby greatly augmenting their income. Write us, or come to see us, and get our proposition. Three hundred forty ii He is a Well Dressed Man ' " This is something that every man likes to have said about himself. To be a well dressed man is a business asset, not only because it creates a good impression on the other fellow, but because it gives YOU more confidence in YOURSELF. To dress well, and at the same time economically, requires careful dis- crimination in the selection of your clothier. We advertise economical clothes, and we are able to show you why they are economical. 1 . We have four stores in Texas and in buying for all the stores at the same time, we are able to get the best quantity discounts. 2. We do a cash business, do not have a bookkeeping department, and no bad accounts. Our rents are cheap — you will find us upstairs. Our service is the best. We employ men who KNOW clothes. While you are in Denton visit our store in Dallas or Ft. Worth. You can enjoy your- self on what you save.

The great educational factors are: THE CHURCH— Through its ministers. THE SCHOOL— Through its teachers. THE NEWSPAPER— Through its editors. These are not all the educational mediums, but they are the most unselfish, for the men and women engaged in these pursuits get their greatest reward through service. In a modest way the telephone is an educational factor, and it is our greatest pleasure to serve adequately.
