As represented above, we have the director of labor, the worthy farmer, and the efficient capitalist working out common problems; proving that through a cooperation of these three factors the economic world will more nearly reach its pin- nacle of success. To such a reality, we do dedicate this, the ig28 Junior Aggie. E ' NoOsl ' EiE Pv riSbCse FO REWO RD FTER reviewing the pioneer days of Texas, we find there rises in our minds visions of the open country, of virgin forests, untouched by the hand of civilized man. Only a few crude Indian villages mar the primitive state of nature. Viewing Texas of today with vast fields in cultivation, large areas covered with the sky-scrapers of industrial enter- prise, and many miles of railroad and paved hig hways, we wonder at such a transformation. The spirit of progress reveals to us the cause of this change. o g ORDER OF BOOKS Q asses (5 l ii itary hhtics (D rgafi iza tions m: I iN[5 X TNi:» Q- THE COLLEGE ' «S b- «::a Siii ' ?!

Ford, leader of the first platoon, and of 1st Lt. Swift leader of the second platoon. This, no doubt, was one of the best drilled companies that ever represented N. T. A. C. in the competitive drill at the Texas State Fair. As the companies passed in re iew, the line, the uniforms of the cadets from N. T. A. C, and the appearance of the company won the praise of the judges. The officers in charge did their best to win the contest both before and during the competition, but due to the lack ot time in training, they did not have a chance against the other schools who drilled more hours per day than X. T, A. C. drilled in a week. Xexertheless, the fine spirit of the company reflected credit upon the officers who trained it and the men who were trained. Captain Thompson ' Capt. Thompson 1st Lt. H.

' i ' )S f COMPANY A " COMPANY A was the first military unit organ- ized when niilitar) training was introduced into this educational institution. The personnel of Company A still contend that it is first in regard to leaders and performances. Captain J. D. Cole- man is commanding officer of the company of forty men. Captain Coleman has had two years ' ex- perience as a commissioned officer ; and when he was a sergeant, he was voted the most efficient man in the battalion, ist Lt. J. E. Cearley is second in command ; and Lts. Maurice Dorward and J. B. Hearne have made outstanding records in both military and scholastic performances. The honor of 1st Sgt. belongs to Kelvin Dorward. Figures show that Company A has records of which an organization would be ] " :roud. To date Compan ' A has won four of the seven months for having cleanest anil most attractive rooms on Saturday morning; two first places for the best line at Retreat Parade; second place in the battalion for guard mount; second place in the battalion track meet. This company furnished eighteen men for the Crack Company, eleven stars in athletics, and three men for the Rifle Team. The worthy boys of this company reside in Fish Hall. This is the outstanding building on the campus. It is both home and playhouse to its occupants. Company A. Captain ( " oi.kmav C.-i|.t. Cuh-m:m Ist Lt. Ce;irly 1 si Lt. H. P. For l .

Among her personnel she num- bers several men who helped make such an enviable record last ear. Lindbergh Hall is the home o! Companv B. The campus boys have set the customs and traditions of these new quarters for Company B men in the years to come, in a most characteristic and behoo ing manner. Company B has been well represented in all of the military activities of the year, namely the crack company and rifle team, and her men have shown up exxeedingly well in all branches of military life. For a captain she has the man who carried away the honors in the contest for the best drilled man last year and her first sergeant was the runner-up in this same contest. The principal feather in Company B ' s hat was earned when a ery creditable and remarkable show- ing was put on by the men when the corps was review by General Hinds. At this review Company B drew the favorable comment of General Hinds. In another branch of activities the boys from Lindbergh Hall again came across with a well- earned victory in the battalion track meet. In competition on the drill ground and the athletic field, at Retreat Parades and Reviews, the boys of Company B have shown versatility, ability, cooperation, loyalty, and above all sportsmanship. Cai ' iain Swift Jn.l I.t, T. .Si-;il Jn,l T.t. R. C. r,.i .- ,).S h i{ 00 j " - .- ? - , COMPANY C J ' " COMPANY C is made up of cadets who live off - the campus. This company made an excellent showing during the past year. To begin with she j a f . " ; furnished twenty-seven of the sixty-four men in the Crack Company which represented the college at the competitive drill at the Dallas Fair last October. The Crack Company was made up of the best drilled cadets in the college, and the fact that twenty-seven were taken from Company C proves that these men IHM J H wer« well-trained, disciplined soldiers. I |E ' W t Captain Ewell was the company commander at t j fi H tlie beginning of the year, but he was transferred to the staff at mid-term. Lt. Ford was placed in command of the company and was continued in command throughout the year. Lt. Ford was a ery efficient officer and drill instructor. He was the First Lieutenant, second in command of the Crack Company. The accomplishments and suc- cess of Compan ' C were due to the efficiency and ability of these two officers and their assistants in giving instruction. Tlie next thing that this company did was to furnish eight out of the thirteen men on tlie rifle team, which is an excellent percentage. The five highest scores were made by members of Company C. While the cadets were down on the range making the highest scores, the men who stayed on the drill field carried off first place in the guard mount. Since the guard mount is a very difficult drill, this accomplishment is most commendable. The members of Company C are proud of the record they have made. They hope that the future Company C ' s will take this Company as an ideal and strive to accomplish as much in the time to come as Company C has accomplished, igay- ' aS. t ' AiMAiN lAvi;i.r. -- i{ 100}§e- «:l{ loi Y ■{ I ()2 }: - BAND C.Ai ' T.

Dick are el EFORE tin- bcfiiiining of anotlicr Fall si-ssion, my tour ot duty as Professor of Military Science and Tactics at North Texas Agricultural College will have drawn to its conclusion and I shall have departed for one of our Foreign Service stations. Ere I go, I would indeed be suppressing a natural desire did I not seize this final opportunity of addressing a few sincere words of farewell to all whom I am leaving behind. First of all, let me say that my associations during m - four years at the college have been most pleasant and cordial. The Dean and other college officials have been sympathetic and earnest in their desire to help me upon all occasions and have given freely of their counsel and their aid in solving the many problems pertaining to the successful administration of the Reserve Officers ' Training Corps. Any which the Corps has made during these years should be attributed largely to the spirit of helpful co-operation which every member of the faculty and staff of the North Texas Agricultural College has shown towards the Military Department and its program of instruction. And now to the students of our college I address these last words. I wish for each af you a long, happy and useful life, with Love and Contentment always in your heart as you travel along the rough highways of Experience. Many of you will fail to gain the height which the world calls Success — a Success measured in terms of wealth or fame or power. But if Success means so living your life as to gain and retain forever the love and confidence of those who know you best — if it means to be deserving of the respect of friend and foe alike — if it means being true to your highest ideals and to that still small voice within you which is called Conscience — if Success means these things, then I hope each one of you shall find Success in great abundance. Your thoughts will revert often to these college days for they have been happy, fruitful and profitable days, short in the passing and lingering long in the memory. But remem- ber that for you even better days are just ahead, and prepare to live them fully and wisely; determine to meet each new problem of I ife with a cheerful confidence in your abilit to win the things that are best. And should any of you ever chance to think of me, my most sincere hope is that you remember me not merely as an officer of the Army sent by the War Department to carry out its policies as best he knew how, but that you will remember me mostly as a friend who has shared some of your own experiences, as one who sympathizes with you in your failures and defeats and takes pride in your attainments and our successes.

C due to the fine cooperation and the combined efforts of the coaches. Coach " Red " Moore trained a football team that carried the Blue and White to many a ictory. On the basketball court he sent a quintet through an undefeated season. W. L. Hughes, the mentor of baseball, produced a team that would have taken the championship but for an error in schedule. The track, tutored b C P. Rumph, distinguished itself at e ery event in which it participated. Not only has Mrs. V. L. Hiighes, the director of ph sical training for girls, aroused enthusiasm and spirit among the girls in her department, but she has directed many " between-halves " that aroused that " ole fight " in the Aggies. After the regulars were chosen for the football team, " Major " Dunsworth organized a second squad, the Bees. By persistent work they intercepted good scores for N. T. A. C. and received valuable training for 1928. Moore Ihail (joach Hughes Assistant Coach Rumph Assistant ( oai li Mrs. Hughes CHrls Athletics Dunsworth Sccon l Fcani (akicIi mM G - W • 109 J! -- The 1927 football training opened witli about thirt men reporting to Coach Moore at the Lake Worth Training Camp. This camp is an annual affair which opens one week prior to the opening date of the regular school session. While at camp, tlie bo ' s got their first taste of the pigskin. After a week at camp the men returned to the school field to begin the long grind of twel e weeks including ten games. 3{ 1 10 } THK 1927 SEASON The first two games wlti ' noii-confercncc affairs and ser ed to locate the rough spots in the lineup. The third game of the season was a conference game with Hillsboro and ended in a great victory for the fighting Hornets. Pounding their way to com- paratively easy victories, the team showed much improvement in the next four games with Wesley. Weatherford, Wichita Falls and Paris. During the week of November i ith, injuries put the team roster in bad condition and caused quite a let down on the morale of the squad. This week the Hornets had a hard time emerging with a scant six to nothing win o er (jainesville Junior College. Howe er this let down was apparently wiped away the following week when these stinging Hornets ran away with a good score over Ranger Junior College, a team reputed to be strong con- cr,Acii Mnoiu- tenders in the race. Although the game was won by a good score, it played havoc with the chances for a championship in the following game with Tarleton. In the Tarleton game practically all the men were able to be uniform, but many were in bad condition. This game was a hard fight, and the Hornets tasted their first and only defeat of the season. Taking the season as a whole, it was highly successful one and no doubt the 1927 Hornets were one of the strongest fighting aggregations ever assembled at the North Texas Agricultural College. Jlt? ■ ;:„ ' ■ ■ i III «- il.?l f K ' • »-v Ti-arintj up Hillshoru ' s litir N. T. A. C. 37 — Wichita Falls Ji xior College 6 On October 29tli the Hornets jniirneyed to Wichita Falls for a conference tilt with the Wichita Falls Indians. This was the first encounter on foreign soil, hut the crew came through with flying colors. The Indians put up a stubborn defense in the early part of the game but finally succumbed to the powerful offense of the Hornets. Only once did the Aggies weaken, and this resulted in a touchdown for Wichita. In the last period the Hornets came back «ith a powerful drive which completely swept the Wirhitans off their feet. The final gong again found those fighting Hornets on the long end of a 37 to 6 count. This was another conference win. N. T. A. C. 51 — Paris Junior College 6 In this game the Hornets kept the slate clean and s vamped the Paris Dragons. Th? first half netted a 25 point lead and Coach Moore ran in the second string which continued the battle in great style. However a fumble by a second string backfield man was scooped up and carried for a touchdown in the latter part of the game. This affair was merely a good practice for the Hornets who had appnrentl hit a great stride. • 114} ){ 1 1 5 }( ■ 1 1 6 «- - BASKETBALL THE 1928 SKASON Results of Basketball Games CONFERENCE GAMES Gainesville Jr. College 30 (lainesville Jr. College 11 HilLsboro Jr. College 29 Hillsboro Jr. College 16 Paris Jr. College 17 Paris Jr. College 20 Paris Jr. College 24 Ranger Jr. College 27 Ranger Jr. College 32 Texarkana Jr. College 12 Weatherford Jr. College 27 Weatherford Jr. College 23 Wesley Jr. College 29 Wesley Jr. College 20 Wesley Jr. College 24 Total 341 f9liJI «ii Captain- McCoi.i.oucii N.T.A.

With three enthusiastic players who answered the first call for basketeers, Coach jVioore felt confident that he could develoii one of the fastest and highest ranking teams that had ever repiesented N. T. A. C. on the court. After the preliminary training the following men proved to be the material from which the team would be selected: McCulloch ; Maxey; Barron; Hutler; Hunter; Bigley; Jackson; Barron, R. C. ; Altnian ; Case -, Swinnea ; Spence ; Taylor; and Creecy. The Aggies had an unusually and an exceptionally good scoring combination of forwards, guards, and centers, which enabled them to score 973 points to their opponents 603. The Hornets proved their superior qualities to their opponents by winning their first four Conference games. They lost the fifth to Wesley Junior College by one point. They profited by this mistake and on the following night defeated and doubled the score against the same team. They finished the season without being defeated again. Not satisfied with winning the Eastern Conference, the Aggies entered the Southern Athletic Association Tournament held in Dallas. They lost the first game to the Southeastern Teachers College of Oklahoma by a score of 46-37. After this defeat they entered the Consolation Tournament and won it by ilef eating the I)e Molays 54-14; Cedar Hill Independents 51-23; and Morris Men ' s Wear 44-31. A trophy was presented to the Aggies by the Southern Athletic Association. ss u isssi s S£» sS g3 m :A ;.( frn- ' iti i N. T. A. C— Raxger The Junior Aggies opened their Conference season by defeating Ranger College in a series of two hard-fought games. McCulloch hit the basket at will and in both games he was high point man. These games were won b ' individual pla ' ing and scoring more than bv team-work. Initler, Hunter, and McCulloch, three letter men from the previous season were greath ' aided by the consistent goal shooting of the two freshmen players, Maxey and Bigley. N. T. A. C. — Weatherford C)[ily a few days following the victory over the Ranger quintet Coach Moore took his squad over to Weatherford. Here they found a much stronger team than the former. This was shown by the excellent team work and fast playing of the Coyotes and by their leading the score at the end of the first half. The Aggies returned in the second half and displayed the old Aggie fight, defeating the Coyotes to the tune of a thirt -eight to twenty-seven. Barron played a splendid game at guard; his excellent guarding combined with the outstanding performance of Hunter kept the Coyotes from scoring heavy in the second half. McCulloch was successful in hitting the basket regularly. The return game was played on the home court. This the Aggies won easily. The game started with the . ggies flashing down the court with accurate team work. They took the lead in the first half and kept the score in their favor throughout the game. Again Barron and McCulloch won favorable compliments. N. T. A. C. — Cjainesvili.e The Gainesville team came all the way down to Arlington just to receive the most striking and thrilling defeat given any team by the Aggies. This was the most spectacular game of the season for the spectators. In this game Maxey was the renter of attraction; his consistent goal hitting as tctr ard as the feature nf the game. Hunter was a terror to the opposing forwards. I )r R. C. Kakkos- R. D. Barron- Tran ionfc N. T. A. C— Weslev The Junior Aggies were defeated only one time during the playing season; this victory fell upon the shoulders of the sturdy Wesley team. The Aggies got a good start in the first half but were not able to score equal to the fast forwards of the Wesley aggregation. They accepted this defeat unflinchingly and persisted in overpowering the Wesley squad the following night by a score of 39 to 20. McCulloch and Maxey were the chief scorers in these games. Barron and Hunter covered well on the defense as guards. In the return games which were played in CSrecnville, the Aggies turned the Wesley team down the road to defeat. McCullnch was the outstanding basket hitter and Barron and Hunter filled the positions at guard. X. T. A. C. — P.ARis Jl xioR College From Greenville the .Aggies went to Paris where they met the Paris Dragoiis in a two game eiigagement. The Hornets stung the Dragons; the score swelled in the .Aggies favor in both games. The first was a fast game in the beginning but it slowed up in the second half, for the Dragons soon felt that they were being outplayed considerably by the Junior .Aggies. Bigley was high point man in this game. Hunter played a great game at guard. The second game was played in a small gym but the .Aggies underwent this handicap and whipped the Dragons to a tune of 42-20. Maxey was high point man in this game closely followed by Bigley. Barron was the outstanding player at guard. This game hung in the bolance, neither team appearing to take the lead until the beginning of the second half. In the last half the fast passing attack of the Aggies was brought into play and the score soon rose to double that of the Dragons when the final vhistle blew. . T. A. C. HlLLSBORO The Hillsboro games were harder struggles as indicated by the scores. The .Aggies executed supreme defensive and offensive playing. In the first game Hunter played a good game at guard, Jackson at forward. Maxey led in the scoring for the .Aggies. In the second game Hunter was the outstanding player on the court. He made five long fiel d goals and guarded sr) vell that he was the acknowledged star for the evening. Bigley and Maxey were the other runners up in the score. J.

I ' csarkana, Paris, Wesley, Cainesville, and N. T. A. C. were the teams to participate in this meeting. The Aggies ' first game in the tournament was played with Ciainesville. The Aggies ere working in excellent team work during this game and won the game easily, scoring 51 to 11. McCulloth and Maxcy tied for high point man, each making 16 points. Hunter hit some sensational goals and played the opposing forwards off their feet on the delense. Butler seemed to have good luck at guard and proved so in this game. Next to meet the Aggies were the Texarkana quintet, . iiiither uneven score resulted in favor of the Aggies. McCulloch proved himself worthy of mention and played a marvelous game at forward to make him high point man. The Paris Dragons met another hard defeat in the tournament from the Aggies. The Dragons played a fast game but the Aggie forwards hit the basket too regularly. Barron and McCulloch were the outstanding players at their respective positions. The Wesley squad was the last to play the Aggies in the tournament. This team had already undergone one defeat in the tournamnt, but they were the contenders to play the finals off with the Aggies.

THE 1927 SEASON RKVIFW OF THE SEASON ■J) h I he tfani as a wliok- ;is wt-ak in no one- [lositioii, though batting weakness was considered to be the greatest barrier. Interest and enthusiasm manifested by both Coach Hughes and the players could not have been improved. Wesley and Hillsboro, in all probability gave the home boys more anxiety than any other contenders, with the exception of Tarle- ton. In all of the cases where games were lost it seemed that N. T. A. C. lacked the self-confidence necessar to tlicn ' success. In no instance was their defeat attributed to a lack of abilit ' on the part of the players. In almost e ery combat the Hornets seemed to take consolation when the ' were pla ing on the home field. Out of 14. conference games played b ' N. T. A. C. eight were won and ft were lost. Of the entire 18 games played, m were won and eight were lost. Ninety-seven runs were scored by the Hornets to S3 of their opponents. Noel Caine showed himself to be one of the best men in the Junior Conference, while Grier Dickey was deserving of much credit. N. T. A. C. on the final tally was in line for the Junior champion- ship, but due to a misunderstrjiding among officials in arranging the schedule, it was tiiougiit advisable to not definiteiv award tlv.

A. C and Weather- ford College, hut in ni) way hampered the enthusiasm of the Hornets, for when they returned from the field they were winners by H score of 6 to i. At the very outset of the affray the Ci. votes proved themselves too weak to withstand the onslaught of the fast Aggie team. The Hornets in their first time at bat took advantage of a walk and an error by following them up with a couple of hits and putting enough runs across the plate to win the game. Pope saved the day when three men were on bases and he knocked a powerful hit, resulting in scoring two runs. Caine ' s swiftness of action was noted when he tagged the runner coming home and then threw the batter out at first. The status of N. T. A. C. players after the game was: Thomas, 2; Hurress, i; Pope, i; McColloch, i; Sansom, i. WICHITA SERIES Closing out the baseball season for the term of ' 26- ' 27, the Hornets lost the first game of a double-header with the Wichita Indians by a score of 3 to 2 and won the second by a score of 4 to I. Of the five scores made in th(i game none was earned. All with the exception of the first Hornet run were the result of errors. In the first inning Sansom and Thomas walked. Sansom scored from third when Caine grounded out second to first. In the sixth inning Cainc scored when the catcher missed one of Robertson ' s fast ones. vo errors by Pope and one by Stac ' opened the way for three Wichita runs. The Junior Aggies scored in the first, fourth and fifth innings of the second game on Caine ' s round trip blow. McColloch scored by sliding to first. Pope scored frrm second on Stacy ' s single to right field. The lone Indian tally came as a result of a single and three errors. (Jrier Dickey pitched both games and allowed only two hits in the game- he lost and four scattered singles in the second affray. In seven of the fourteen mnings only twenty-two men faced hitn. Captain Noel Caine finished his fourth year as big man in N. T. A. C. baseball circles with the ending and winning of this game. - ifK I ■ { 127 }i - -»:?)i mst Vii. . ' a ' Sik A Cain, l,uns nut a hum, tarlf:tc)n series The first encounter with Tarleton was taken by N. T. A. C. in a Sail Jacinto day tilt resulting; in a score of 1 1 to 5. Only nine Junior Ags actually participated in the game. Sealc played several good games, coaching on third base and officiating as bat boy. Every player on the winning side got at least one hit in the first game. The Hornets scored in every inning except the second, sixth and seventh. Sansom started the game off by flying out to left field. Thomas walked and Hunter hit to the second baseman, who dropped the ball. Thomas was slopped on third. With two down, Caine scored Hunter with a double to right field. Biirress struck out the opposing batter and the Hornets made one run each in the fifth and third innings and two runs in the fourth inning. The game was put on ice as a victory for N. T. A. C in the eighth inning when three more runs were chalked up. The Plowboys made the initial score in the second game. Sansom started the game off with a pop-up to the catcher. N. T. A. C. did not score again until the eighth inning. Grier Dickey boosted his baseball average consider- ably during the two Stcphenville games. In the first game he played center field. In five trips to the bat he got four hits. In the last game he whipped Matthews out in a pitchers ' duel. Only six men faced him in the third and fourth innings and five of these he struck out. Ik- struck out eleven batters in the entire game. N. T. A. C. lost the first game of the second series as a direct result of errors that unfortun- ately came at very costly moments. Burress, Dickey and Harris all pitched winning ball in the two games but received little support and lost both contests. The Hornets led in scoring in both games. Butler and McCulloch scored in the second inning. The second game started off like the Ags would bring home the bacon. Pope and Ilunler both made good plays. The Hornets staged a rally in the tenth inning, but it fell short two runs and the Plowboys got their revenge for the two previous defeats. v;v, ' ffr Barron, R. D.

Lewis, Thompson, Creecy and Kuykendall were awarded wrist watches for indi- vidual excellence and the team was awarded the school trophy. The relay team won second place in the Junior College mile relay at Rice, and second in the medley relay. After the relays the Hornets made several trips to Fort Vorth to work out with T. C. U. and the Fort Vorth High Schools. They made a good showing each time. On account of the fact that many bridges were washed out between Fort Worth and Norman, Oklahoma, the team was unable to attend the Oklahoma relays. The Hornets showed up well in the dual meet with the Nortli Te Scores were very close in the Eagles ' favor. When the dual meet with S. M. L ' . P ' ish was held several members of the track team were out on accovuit of dlness; and, as a result, the Fish were ictonous by a small margin. Although Tarleton won the State meet, N. T. A. C. was a close second. She won nine out of seventeen gold medals for first place. Winning fi e, Tarleton was nearest N. T. A. C. The Hornets were represented in nearU every track event of the season. Competition was much greater than any previous year. Lewis was high point man in the State. The 1927 team was probably the best that ever represented N. T. A. C.

Wilson won the mile before he entered the half. Hill took first place in the discus throw. The relay team was a close second in the mile relay. Since Denton had an exceptionally good relay team, they won the meet; howe er, their one outstanding track man was responsible for their victory. This Denton man won the 440-yard dash and he was also responsible for their winning the mile rela . His gains gave the lead. The final score was: N. T. A. C. 33; X. T. S. T. C. 59. Hakkuv, R. D.

Q., ... iu tu 137 K RIFLE TEAM THE Junior Aggie Rifle Team made an excellent record for the past season. The team entered the Eighth Corps Area Intercollegiate Rifle matches in which it placed fifth with a score of 71 lO out of a possible 8o(Xi. The Aggie team was matched with such colleges as A. M. College of Texas, Oklahoma A. iS: IVI. and the Colorado School of iMines. These colleges had many men from which to pick, but there were ery few to pick from here. All members of the N. T. A. C. were expert riflemen, as their scores averaging about 725 out of a possible 800, would indicate. Lt. Lawson and Capt. Ewell had charge of the coaching and instruction on the range. These two officers deserve much credit for the success of the team and its record in these matches. During the preliminary practice and instruction all men had a chance to try out for the team. The best shots were picked and given more practice at the regular drill periods and during off periods. At the Retreat Parade of March 11 the members of the Rifle Team were pre sented with beautiful medals in return for their excellent record and diligent work. This particular phase of military work is very interesting as we ' ll as b enefical to the cadet. It teaches the fundamental principles of marksmanship and care of the rifle. Every cadet should try to make the team and attempt to make it better in the future. Not only is it a credit for the college to have expert riflemen, but it is an honor for each individual who makes the team and participates in the intercollegiate and corps area matches. Carland, W.

To our mind there is that indescribable something that enters into e -ery work of art that can not be placed there merely by the artist ' s hanti, but is rather a part of the very fibre and soul of those who are entrusted with its creation. Some call it personality, some genius, some inspiration, — but we prefer to think of it as going deeper than that and deem it that spark of the Divine that flashes from the soul of every individual who undertakes a worthy deed. Surely the student body of this school is under an everlasting debt of gratitude to those individuals who have given of the best they ha e to the end that others may be made happy. We congratulate them on the splendid results they have accom- plished and are proud of the part that we have had in making a reality this splendid year book. Work of this character requires the highest skill and closest attention, and therefore we accept only a limited number of contracts each year. We look upon the JuxiOR Aggie as one of our old friends and trust that we may have the privilege of serving this loyal student body again and again in the years to come. Cordially and sincerely, Gayle Printing Company Waco, Texas, May ist, 1928. 175 }i ' - 11 ;:zippreciatiO]n To THOSE who have given their services un- sparingly, sacrificing pleasures, recreation, and studies, praises may not be heaped too high. This not only applies to the members of the staff, but to the faculty and students that have helped in any wav toward getting in copy, and have given their assistance to the editing of this, the 1928 JUNIOR Aggie. I am sorry a list acknowledging the names and contributions of each who has contributed can not be published, but I am glad to acknowledge that this publication is well representative of the student talent with which N. T. A. C. is abundantly supplied. The editors have endeavored to gather material for this year-book which will present school life as it is, in just a little different way, with the purpose of presenting a story in pictures embodying as little explanation as possible. The paramount aim is left to your own suggestive mind — so, if in after years these pictures recall the little details and happenings of this past year, our ambition will have been realized. You, the members of the student body, must be the judges, and if vour judgment is favorable, we shall ask no greater reward. Coleman Casey - " i76)» " IK n ' X ' 4 !
