These hordes brushed aside the barriers of the Empire and made them- selves masters of the provinces and finally of Rome itself, everywhere setting up kingdoms of their own and laying the foundations of a civilization stronger and more enduring than that swept away. s n was with the Teutons then, so is it with Harvard now. From this northern hive wave alter wave, if not of barbarians, at least of professors and deans and presidents have swept westward and southward where they have taken possession of the land and built up educational kingdoms of their own. The first of these waves to reach the University of Texas brought on its crest only one Harvardian, Leslie Waggener, but he. nothing daunted, proceeded to make himself founder of a new Harvardian dynasty. The second wave brought David Franklin Houston. Sidney Edward Mezcs. and the subject of this sketch, who, maintaining the Waggenerian tradition, have followed each other in stately procession through the various professorial and adminis- trative ranks to the deanship and the presidency. The two former have found other realms of conquest, while the latter is still with us and few there be amongst us who do not wish that his stay may be long continued. For historical completeness it should be said that later waves have brought us Harry Yandell Benedict. Milton Brockett Porter, and many others, and there seems to be little reason to doubt that similar waves of barbarians will continue to arrive for years to come. While it cannot be said that Dr. Battle was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, it is certain that he was possessed of a good appetite, for at an early age he began to " eat up Latin. Greek and other indigestibles. A college man from his very birth, his father being pro- fessor of history and afterward president of the University of North Carolina, young Battle took his bachelor ' s degree before his eighteenth birthday, having annexed various academic honors in the process. He then spent several years in Harvard where he received two advanced degrees and landed in Austin in the fall of 1893 as associate professor of Greek. Soon after his arrival in Austin an amusing incident occurred when Dr. Battle met Francis R. Lubbock, the veteran war-governor of Texas. " Governor Lubbock, my name is Battle, said the youthful newcomer, holding out his hand. " I ' m very pleased to meet you. Mr. Battle, " said the veteran in gray. " And where are you from, Mr. Battle? " " My home is in Chappel Hill. North Carolina. " said the youth. " Well, well ' " said the octogenarian. " I ' m proud to learn that the reputation of our young university has spread abroad to such an extent that students are coming to us from such distances. " Whereupon the blushing stranger was forced to acknowledge that he was not a student at all. but that he had already taken his Doctor ' s degree at Harvard and was the new professor of Greek. Having arrived in the state at so tender an age. Dr. Battle soon became as good a Texan as any native — better, he maintains for he is a Texan by choice and not by the accident of birth. And certain it is that no native of the state has ever served it with greater devotion and singleness of purpose. He is one of the best instructors the University has ever had, an able administrator with a genius for detail, a scholar, a gentleman, a man without guile. At no time in the history of the University has its internal administration received such careful scrutiny as during his administration as acting president. C. 6 Polls. Our New President |N the 25th of April the Board of Regents surprised the university community and the citizens of the state at large, by selecting as president of the University of Texas effective July 1st, Dr. Robert Ernest Vinson, president of the Austin Theological Seminary, to succeed William James Battle. Dr. Vinson was notified of his election by a committee ol the Board, consisting of David Har- rell. Geo. W. Littlefield. and Dr. Battle, and announced his acceptance. While the selection of Dr Vinson came as an almost t otal surprise, the action of the Board was heralded with universal approval by the friends and well wishers of the university through- out the state. Dr. Vinson was born in Fairfield County, South Carolina. November 4. 1876: son of John and Mary Eliz- abeth Bricc Vinson He received the degree of bachelor of arts from Austin College. Sherman, Texas, in 1896 and the degree of bachelor of divinity from Union Theological Seminary in Vir- ginia in 1899: studied at the Univer- sity of Chicago in 1892: received the degree of doctor of divinity from Austin College in 1905: received the degree of doctor of laws from Southwestern Presbyterian University in 1910 On January 3. 1901. he married Miss Katherine Elizabeth Kerr of Sherman, of which marriage- there are three children For the last fourteen years Dr. Vinson has been a teacher in the ustin Theological Seminary, commencing in 1902 as professor of Hebrew and New I estament Greek, and in l L X)o was transferred at his own request by the board of trustees to the Allcn- Johnson Chair of English Bible and Practical Theology. In 1908 Dr inson was unanimously elected president of the seminary, in which position he has continued until this date. In 1909 he was appointed by the Synod of Texas as chair- man of the executive committee of schools and colleges to administer the financial attain ol all ol the educational work of the Presbyterian Church in Texas, which position he still holds, Dr. Vinson is the fourth native son of South Carolina to be called to the presidency ol the University of Texas. The other South Carolinians who have been at the head ol the school arc George fayloe Winston. David F. Houston, now Secretary ol Agriculture in Presi- dent ilson ' s cabinet, and V. J. Battle, who has been sen ing as president since the resignation Mezes. Dr. Vinson comes to the university with the best wishes and most hearty co-operation .,1 both the student body and alumni of the school, I lis opportunitj is immense, and his i. confident in the belief that he will adopt a broad-gauged and liberal policy with reference to the administration of the affairs of I educational institution, and predict an era ol prosperity and progress for man) years to come ftN niversw H.

For many of you the period of preparation for your life work will end within a few weeks. Most of you have earned a period of recreation before taking up a future task. All of you will, 1 trust, go back at least for a time to home and people, for their pleasure and for yours. Wherever you go. whether homeward or elsewhere, you will stand forth as representatives of the University. By your words, by your actions, the worth of the University is going to be judged, its value to the state estimated. Had you thought of that 1 The University was created to give to the most capable youth of the state a training that should fit them to become leaders in their communities — leaders in thought, leaders in action, and examples in right living. Now. people expect return for money expended, and exactly insofar as you. the sons and daughters of the University, seem to the people of the state worthy of confidence will they give the University means to produce more men and women like you. Alma Mater loves you all; she hopes good things for every one; she will follow you with unchanging interest to the ends of the earth: she holds open her doors with a welcome that never cools: but, as you leave her for a day or forever, she begs you to remember that her honor is in your keeping. If she has but taught you the secret of the joy of life ' If you have but caught the truth that the one abiding satisfaction is the memory of help given, of duty done, of self conquered! Wealth, fame, position, pleasure — these are alluring prospects, but deep down in the bottom of the heart there is a feeling that there is something better than these. Ever since Jesus gave the world his method of inwardness and his secret of self-sacrifice, those have seen that something better who had eyes to see. To us of today the fearful war now waging brings home the same truth on a vaster scale. As science has an- nihilated time and distance, national relations have grown closer. National isolation is now no longer possible. National greatness, even national exist- ence, will now depend on the subordination of the interests of the individual to those of the community. The state must work for the common good, but the state must be supreme. In man ' s relation to the state, as in his relation to his neighbor, the eternal truth manifests itself that he who loses his life shall find it. It is to the recognition of this truth that Alma Mater calls you. It : s not an easy lesson; nay. it is the hardest lesson that man has ever had to lea.-n But it is also the noblest lesson that the mind has ever devised; it is the only lesson that shall bring the peace at last. — W J Battle uwq m it THE CACTUS IQIO p THE CACTUS IOIO r BiwrayyiTr ££ On Lake Austin THE CACTUS IOIO — - Barton C REEK ' iiiiijjgjffj iflBi|fc k .

If any of its founders ever had any doubts as to the feasibility of undertaking to publish an alumni magazine at Texas, those doubts must surely have been along ago dispelled by the remarkable success which has attended The Alcalde during the four years of its publication. For indeed it would be hard to find, even among the alumni publications of the older colleges of the East, some of which have been published for a quarter, and a half-century, a magazine better suited and more effectively answering the needs of the ex-students. It is conservative to say that The Alcalde more than any other force has tended to cement the great body of ex-students together and to keep alive their interest and affection for their alma mater. In this it has answered a long-felt need among the former students of the University. We only hope that the future issues of The Alcalde will keep up the pace set by the first twenty-odd issues, and that the future editors will possess the efficiency and enthusiasm of the present editor, Mr. Lanham.

Campbell .Secretary Hughes Knight Business Manager Rex B. Shaw Stage Manager Dr. W. L. Sowers Director The season of 1915-16 was a momentous one for the Curtain Club, the University s oldest dramatic organization. The club was founded in 1909, and had been under the leadership of Prof. Stark Young ever since. The departure of Mr. Young for Amherst left the director ship open, and Dr. V. L. Sowers of the School of English, a former pupil of the dramatic au thority. Prof. Baker of Harvard, was elected to fill the vacancy. A second change consisted in admitting co-eds to membership for the first time. It was felt that the old classical comedies, which had been practicable for a membership consisting of men exclusively, had been pretty well exhausted. The members, no less than the public were desirous of staging some of the best modern plays. It was felt that this would be im- possible unless young women could participate, and five of them were accordingly admitted, three more being added later. The club has not confined its activity this year to a single public performance. Four of the members presented Houghton ' s " Fancy Free " at the Y. W. C. A. benefit on February 29, and private theatricals were enjoyed by the members and invited guests after a dinner at the Tea Room on March 2. More events of a similar nature are anticipated in the course of the spring. The most pretentious production of the year was that given on December 2. A list of previous performances follows: " The Silent Woman. " 1909; " The Knight of the Burning Pestle. " 1910; " The Miser, " 1911; " The Fan, " 1912; " The Sole Heir. " 1913; " The Two Angrv Women of Abington.

It had for its purpose the impro ement of the football rallies and of stirring up a keener interest in dramatics among the University students. One act playlets written bv members ol the club are presented at two or three rallies each season, and a big. modern play is produced during the winter term. Membership to this club is on a firm competitive basis, and it is the only dramatic or- ganisation in the University which chooses its members in tryouts. More than eighty-five competed during the last year ftcr three years of negotiations and patient waiting, the Winsonians succeeded in getting permission from ' the Dean ol Women to have girls in the club This accomplishment was heralded as a great and long-desired ictorj for dramatics at the I ni ersitj of Texas ( i In i clubs have followed the Winsonians. and the cracked voice of the female impersonator has passed into histors t present there are twelve women members in the club, all of whom were elected bv l he tryout method.

In those great old days when the inn and the coffee cup were the substi- tutes for the modern newspapers, the literati of Spain gathered around their geniuses in clubs or parties, just as the English lights gathered around their luminary to listen to the old Doctor ' s oracles. These meetings partook of a social and literary nature, and were called Tertulias. The club holds its meetings every two weeks and its programs include essays in Spanish on varied topics of Hispanic interest, poetical recitations from the Spanish and Latin-American poets, orations, declamations and games, supplemented with music from the masters. But the main activity of the club for the past two years has been its annual dramatic performance in the auditorium. The play this year " Zaragueta, " was a success in every way. A departure from its usual activities has marked the history of the club this year In an effort to further the ends of Pan-Americanism, and to bring the two Americas closer together, the club has set on foot a movement for the formation of a Pan-American Hispanic Society among the universities and colleges of North America. A magazine will be published in Spanish, and a large exchange list will be developed with Latin-American publications, with the view of fostering mutual sympathy by more extensive social and intellectual communion. The proposal has been received with enthusiasm by a large number of American universities and it is hoped that the organization will be completed next session. 216 J r Tl IE CAC1 i : S lOlO - The Year inn Dranmatiew XI R( ISAL1ND " The Curtain Club Play 01 R one-act plays comprised the program which the Curtain Club presented in the Auditorium on the night of December 2. 1915 This marked the first attempt of a university, organization to adopt this ultra-modern form of entertainment, he performance was no less remarkable in being the first (in English, at least!, i which both I niversitj men and women participated he production commenced with Lord Dunsanv s I lie Chttcring (late ' This little pla is laid before the gate of hea en. and represents the efforts of two dead burglars to gain admittance It is an extraordinarj mingling of realism and smybolism, with the latter pre- dominating Hughes Knight and George Hexter were east in this piece, and succeeded well in conveying the prevailing tragic tone, relieved by occasional comic touches. Of vastly different character was the second play, " The Workhouse Ward ' ' by Lady Greg- ory, a rollicking Irish farce. The scene was a bare room in the workhouse with two old Irish peasants King side b side in the narrow beds of the ward. They indulged in a flood of rich Irish invective, but the real love for one another that underlies their vituperations is revealed when the sister of one ol them comes to offer to remove him from the workhouse, and he de- clines to go when he learns that it will necessitate leaving his old comrade behind In the ' inn. i] roll .1 the s ter.

A. E. Thomas and Clayton Hamilton. Novel in plot, and amusing and ingenious in the development of the situations, this play- as presented by the Winsonian Club was the distinct hit of the dramatic season. The story of the play had to do with the efforts of Richard Howard, a young writer, to obtain $20,000 that he might pay off his father ' s indebtedness to the bank of which he was president. Young Howard is about to kill himself in order that his father may collect an insurance policy, when Elaine Foster, a friend of Dick ' s sister, who is visiting at the Howard home during the Easter holidays, suggests that they write a play depicting Dick ' s struggle to obtain the money. And the play as presented on the stage is supposed to represent the play the two are writing. This unusual idea gave rise to many amusing situations. In the finished production the members of the cast of " The Big Idea " acquitted themselves creditably. So ably, so smoothly, so swiftly did they act their parts, that the performance was said to be the best bv amateurs ever seen in the University auditorium They acted with Bin 1 □ 1 H« t ,„,_ , ii £al " 1 »Cf ' v t ' , ■ jm ' WON ' T YOU SIT DOWN.

The performance as a whole would have done credit to many professional companies Miss Dema Fleck in the part of Elaine Foster, played with distinction and with confidence. Upon her rested the burden of the play, and she carried her part with remarkable clever- ness. Richard N. Mather as Dick Howard acted his unusually long part admirably. He- was on the stage during nearly the entire three acts, and carried his scenes through with marked ability. Mr. Byrne, the cashier, a part that demanded careful and skilful acting, was handled in a surprisingly vivid manner bv Harry K. Brown His scenes with Elaine and Dick and Bob were the hit of the performance. Spencer Stubbs. in the part of the father, acted the one character part in the pla with many able touches Robert Skiles made the most of the amusing part of Bob Caswell, the insurance agent. Miss Clifton Townsend as Elsie Foster had a small part, but she acted with such dash and spirit that her role stood out as one of the hits Mi Opal Woodlej played the mother with much grace and quiet charm. A rather difficult and trs ing part, she acted it in a most creditable manner Adrian F. Lew played Charles Gilmorc with a surer touch, perhaps, than any other member of the cast. He acted with an ease that « as pleasing. The other members of the cast. Ellen Ada Stephens, as the maid. J. LI Rowntree as Jim. the office boy. and A.

A THE CACTUS IOIO 1 SCKXi: [■RUM ZARAt.linA " The La Tertulia Play The Spanish Club scored its greatest success this year. Never before has a Spanish play cast shown more team-work. Mr. Hendrix. whom the club was very fortunate to secure as coach again, early attained the perfect co-operation of his cast, and by his unfailing promptness and enthusiasm inspired every member to redoubled efforts. Thanks to Mr. Hendrix ' s ex- cellent manner of instruction, to the efficiency of Mr. J. L. Dunn as business manager, and last but not least, to the fine make-up of the cast, all the rehearsals were thoroughly enjoyed. The stars for the ladies were Miss Frances Giraud as Dolores, Miss Eleanor Wright as Maruja. Miss Giraud ' s impersonation of the aged Spanish matron was especially commended by the critics as showing more than ordinary talent. Miss Wright as the beautiful maiden of the South was justly suited to the part, and her performance evoked general praise. Miss Ruth Whatley as Dona Blasa called forth some hearty laughs by the extremely practical nature of the philosophy which she vainly tried to instill into Pio ' s pious heart; while Miss Helena Janoch as Cregoria made her role famous by her exclamations of " Maria Santissimo! " Among the male actors, Mr. Werkenthin as the corpulent Spanish hidalgo was easily the star. His acting showed finish and interpretative appreciation. He always " got across the footlights " with his innocent and entirely unconscious jokes, and was the most applauded in- dividual in the cast. Mr. Saenz as the spendthrift college student performed his role quite realistically, finding no difficulty in falling in love with his bright-eyed cousin. Mr. Dunn, as the polite but deaf money-lender, played his part with unusual ability. Mr. Qualia as the would-be priest was shocked at the idea of a mustache: such an encumbrance would have con- cealed too much of the piety appearing upon his meditative brow. Mr. S. M. Purcell and Mr Ben Wood, as Perico and Don Salurio respectively, made good showings. Misses Kennedy and Terrell, in charge of the ushers were costumed in the charming Span- ish evening dress, and received general praise for the grace and efficiency with which they handled the crowd. r II II-: CACTI S [QIC ' Jl • ivo Q TV " SoljOJUL 7U rts Ufc- i7yi £j f% - t ..J Rabbit Foot Margaret Batts Leonora Bell Mary Berry Lena May Bonner Sarah Bridgers Elizabeth Buddy Mary Camp Sue Campbell Jeanette Collett Agnes Doran Lottie Ebeling Adele Glascow Gladys Greenlee Helen Haynes Bessie Houston Sophia Hudson Gladys Jameson Laura Johns Louisa Keasbey Katherine Kervin Helen Leary Henrietta Lightfoot Harriet Lipscomb Bessie Lock wood Ruth McReynolds Helen Mobley Lena Beckham Reeder Pauline Seale Minnette Thompson Bessie Bell Tips Clifton Townsend Mary Watson Emily Wells Dorothy Wilcox Helen Williams Geraldine Wilson RATTLERS Top Row — Lawrence, Evans.

This year the Sophs were again humiliated by a very daring escape by the aforementioned Prexy. but little dreamed what was to come. Imagine the consternation that spread thru their ranks when — horror of horrors — it was rumored that the presumptive ignorants had abducted the President of the Sophs. Hand-bills were immediately scattered about the campus profusely, and angry sophs scoured the country for traces of their lost leader. A mass meeting was held in the Auditorium to discuss the matter, and Benny was called upon to talk. Never again! He changed the spirit of the class so completely by a pedagogical outburst against hazing that a solemn silence — appropriate sentiment for a funeral procession — reigned as the meet- jng broke up. The sorrow of the suffering Sophs was short lived, however, for on the very day of the reception the President appeared, and announced to the world at large that his disappear- ance was only an advertising scheme. Consequently, the Reception was staged as usual. President Ray Williams leading the grand march with Miss Clifton Townsend, and the pleasure of trie beautiful function was unmarred. It was a worthy reception of a worthy class, and the crowd that gathered there was amply entertained. However, let us here pre- dict that the old order has changed. Sophs, look out next year!

The hall was beautifully and artistically decorated, giving the effect of a woodland snow To quote from the Austin American; " Snow laden cedar branches outlined the walls, while from a scintillating sky above fell thousands of snowy flakes on the merry dancers. Adding to the beauty of the scene was the central hall decoration of a huge ice fountain, from whose base gleamed numerous sparkling icicles. The blue flooded lights from above cast a becoming moonlight glow over the happy party. " Miss Lena May Bonner, president of the club, led the dance with Lewelling Morgan, while Miss Geraldine Wilson lead the cotillion, favoring Henry Coke Knight. The girls were favored with cunning muffs, while the men were given attractive toboggan caps. Danc- ing was continued until the small hours of the morning, when a supper extra was announced, after which a delicious two course dinner was served the guests. THE RATTLER DANCE The members of the Rattlers Club entertained their friends with a valentine dance on Feb. 14th. at Knights of Columbus Hall, and the affair proved to be one of the most enjoyable social festivities of the school year. The dance hall was hung with hundreds of tiny red hearts standing out against the green of smilax. while here and there soft red lights cast a rosy glow over the happy party. 22 h..

IEAD DANCE To quote from the American " Three huge red lights surrounded by pink roses were suspended from the ceiling, and a quaint white-washed fence and gateway covered with roses and smilax lead up to the musicians balcony, where an orchestra of twenty-five pieces poured forth its sweetest music. The heart shaped programs were procured by the dancers by calling at the improvised postoffice stationed at the end of the hall. " The grand march was led by Robert Simmons, president of the club, with Miss DcRugley Peareson. A sumptuous repast was served the guests immediately after the dinner extra after which the cotillon was led by Miss Dorothy Wilcox and Ned Holland. The favors were found for this attractive figure in a cupid-guarded boat of red. Swagger sticks were given to the girls and cigarettes to the men. THE ARROWHEAD DANK E Distinguished by striking individuality and a wonderfully artistic decorating scheme, the Arrowhead dance, given on the night of February 21st. at Knights of Columbus Hall, prosed a most delightful social event. A canopy of Southern moss and smilax covered the ceiling of the hall, while cedar branches outlined the walls. Zarapes and Navajo blankets " adorned the chairs, accentuating the realistic Indian atmosphere which pervaded. Numerous tepee were in evidence at one end of the hall, in which Indian girls were weaving blankets. Punch was served from an iron kettle, supported bs a tripod. The central decoration of the hall was a totem pole, on which all universit) activities were represented. " 1L.. J : " -- ' : " - » ; THE CACTUS IOIO The Ouilb Dances The grand march was led by Chas.

Indian masks and tomahawks for the men. while the girls were given bows and arrows. A very delicious three-course supper was enjoyed by the guests im- mediately before the cotillion. THE ANGLER DANCE a veritable vine-covered summer ned their friends with a " vogue The Knights of Columbus Hall was transformed house when on the night of April 7th the Anglers summer dance. " To quote from the Austin American: " The deep red of the Richmond rose made a striking contrast to the black and white color motif adopted for the unique occasion. Hanging baskets flower pots, all carrying out the smart color scheme, held quantities of Richmond and American Beauty roses. Delicious punch was served in the sun parlor, which was artistically furnished in white wicker. The Angler girls, entering the hall through a pagola, made a charming pic- ture in their roguish frocks of white organdy. " The grand march was led by Miss Margaret Lee with Hervey Humlong. and the cotillion was led by Miss Frances McQueen and Paul Putnam. The girls were given black and white swagger sticks, topped with American Beauty roses, while the men were favored with bou- tonnieres of crimson rosebuds.

This year it was exceptionally so. At the fall of the barrier the favorites got away with a rush, and soon the race, apparently, developed into a struggle for supremacy between two or three contestants. However, things are not always as they seem, for though the rest of the field seemed hopelessly out of the running. at the three-quarters a dark horse drew away from the mass of laggards, and steadily began to pull up with the leaders. Closer and closer she came, gaining at every stride. The lead of a length was lessened to half a length, a quarter, a head, a nose, and then the newcomer began to GO. At the finish the dark horse led by a stride, and the most thrilling race of THE PEERADE ryone was out for the " peerade. " they stayed out for two hours waiting for it to materialize. When it did. the patience of the patient was amply rewarded Floats and floats and more floats filed up the streets in gorgeous splendor. The fairest of the co-eds were out in force adding beauty to an already beautiful procession. At the head of all was the Queen, Velma of Garrett, and at the tail came the calliope, filling the balmy air with the heavenly strains of " Ballin " the Jack " and other operatic selections.

Tabo, the Monk, the Willard- Johnson light, the European War. and the dancing girls were just one big laugh after another. In the International Sw ipesiakes race Ralph de Farmer shattered all records and finished amid storms of applause while the bucking donkey and the clowns added the finishing touch to it all.

J THE CACTUS 1Q10- k . . %§sim IUNE 11, 1915. was Commencement Sundav. and it heralded the best ment of all. The distinguishing features of ' the first day were an excellent and the musical entertainment conducted by Professor Frank L. Reed. Mr. Reed can not be over-praised for his work, the result of which contributed largely to the success of the day. The services were ably conducted by Rev. H. V. Knickerbocker of the First M. E. Church. The class reunions failed to materialize with their accustomed strength: so no special programs or banquets were attempted. Even the 1911 Laws fell far below their standard. Monday was Alumni and Class Dav. The customary annual exercises were held. In the meeting of the Ex-Students ' Association E. E. Bewley was elected president, and R. W. Franklin Wilmot Odell. and Luther Hoffman vice-presidents. The alumni address was delivered by Hilton R. Greer, editor of the Dallas Evening Journal. The class day exercises were held on the campus, a pavilion having been erected in front of the Woman ' s Building. Alex Spence, president of the senior academic class, presided. Raymond Meyers delivered the key oration, delivering the key of knowledge to the juniors. T. E. Johnson presented Perigrinus to the middle laws, and Tom Towles gave the T-square to the junior engineers. Possibly the biggest event of the entire Commencement, so far the get-together spirit was concerned, was the woman ' s ex-student luncheon, which was held in the Y. M. C. A. Graduaaltiomi Bay Tuesday morning, in the presence of the Faculty, the Regents, and the higher court judges, nearly 300 graduates received their parting counsel in the form of a wonderful address by Dr. Stockton Axson of Rice Institute. At the conclusion of the address Dr. W. J Battle, acting president of the University, presented the diplomas. A short time before the exercises in the auditorium began, the academic procession formed at the south entrance to the campus, and, preceded by Besserer ' s band, moved to the main building and the auditorium, where the central section had been reserved for the graduates. The faculty marched in front of the students, and took their places on the platform. Prayer was offered by the Very Rev. Walter O. Kinsolving. and the benediction was pronounced at the close by Dr. Albert Boynton Storms of Indianapolis. When the time came for the presentation of the diplomas, the graduates marched one by one from their places to the stage and across it. Each student was applauded, and a great cheer burst forth as three blind students received law degrees. The last degree conferred was that of Doctor of Philosophy. Carl Gottfried Hartman received it. As he mounted the steps, to the platform, the entire body of graduates rose, and gave him an ovation. Among the other honors announced were the election of Thomas Watt Gregory. Robert Lynn Batts and John C Townes to honorary membership in Phi Beta Kappa.

The Trip to A. and M. long in the third week of November we went to A. and M. Everybody made the trip from " Proxy " to the lowliest frosh, for it was the first time since 1911 that we met our Farm- er rivals There had been so much agitation in the University and so much argument as to whether or not we should again play A. and M.. that everybody was interested in the game- whet her or not the} favored it. Consequently, in the wee sma ' hours students began to straggle by twos and threes to the depot We reached College Station by noon, and were met by the Farmers with much enthus- iasm In spite of man) predictions to the contrary, we were most royally treated by the hosts and as friendly a spirit has never before been felt between us. The men of A and M received, Fed, entertained, and played us like Texans — no more can be said. Right after dinner there was a dress parade, and it sure was a beauty. Then the crowd wandered around the campus until time for the game. [ " ha! night a solemn crowd climbed aboard the trains, and began the tiresome trip home- ward. Silence reigned supreme; for in the heart of each loval Texan lingered the sting of defeat. People spoke in whispers or spoke not at all for a long time. It was more like a funeral than a toot -ball trip, until some optimistic Engineer rose from his seat, and started the inspiring strains of " Heigh-o, Balls. " In a minute the entire train was in an uproar. I leigh-o. Ball- gave way to " Hail, Hail. " and then that almost -forgotten, would-be-censored rallying song " To Hell With A. and M.

Colonel Simkins acted as toastmaster and carried out his part of the program in his usual inimitable style. The general theme of equity was covered in a humorous vein by all the speakers. The list of entertainers included Justice Chas. E. Craig. Judge W. M. Key, Thomas J. Conway. president of the law department: Francis J. Lyons, representing the seniors; Chas. I. Francis. representing the middlers. and Carl B. Callaway, the chosen speaker of the Juniors. THE TEXAN BANQUET On Friday. Jan. 14. 1916. the Texan staff met in the Tea Room for their first annual banquet. We quote from the Texan: " Ribald, raving and rampant. Chaucer ' s reincarnated pilgrims paraded their ghastly forms in the Cactus Tea Room last night. " Surely this must have been no common occasion to prompt those worthy shades to turn in their graves and thus to participate in mortal, morbid matters. Gentlest of readers, it sure wasn ' t. It saw the first annual dinner of the Daily Texan staff, and those who attended were fed both in body and mind — altho there were some who claimed that partiality was shown the mind. " Originality as well as patriotism in abundance was there; for the banqueters were seated about a " T " shaped table, at the head of which were seated Editor Dan Williams and " Prexy " Battle. " There was only one after-dinner speech, and that was. as it should have been, made by Dr. Battle. " And then, scarcely had the demi-tasses been drained, when Editor Dan announced the headliners: " The Canterbury Pilgrims. " in a merry farce entitled ' The Electoral Col- lege ' b by Chaw Sir ' s Pilgrims at the Cactus Inn. " The banquet was certainly a huge success in every way. THE ENGINEERS ' BANQUET The Reception is dead! Long live the Banquet! Yes. the Reception has died, and no longer will His Majesty Alex I be forced to preside in grim silence over his many followers, while they indulge in the frivolous joys of fantastic modern dances. The Knights of Clairedom have at last realized that the fickle reign of Terpsichore must give way to the rule of the great god Grub. Hereafter let the temporary joys of the dance be relinquished for the lasting benefits of " vittles and drink. " On the night of February 21, Alexander Frederick Claire and his subjects gathered at the Driskill for their annual celebration. Led by Alex and his bodyguard they formed and marched into the banquet hall. In the order of rank they marched. First came the faculty, then the seniors, the juniors, the sophs, and last of all the lowly frosh. No alien eyes were present to gaze on the benign countenance of the King as he sat on his throne, smiling on his faithful followers; no infidel ear heard the sacred strains of " Heigh-o, Balls, " as the faith- ful rose, and greeted their Lord and Master. As to the function itself: ' Certain it is that never in the history of this great and glorious institution has a gathering been so well fed. both in body and mind, as the one that thronged the hall that night. Banty. as toastmaster, has the world " teeroned. " The Grand Old Man opened new territory in the " field of oratory. And the one and only Alex sat in silence, and smiled. A r II IE CAC I I ' S lOlO A THE CACTUS lOl© 1 ALL COMTE T |S usual on March 2nd the frosh and sophs gathered for their annual pushball contest. Gosh, there was a crowd of frosh. and the sophs were handicapped by the fact that the J. A ' s had decided to participate in it only as innocent bystanders. However, the more rational of them gathered with the rest of the class, and decided to make up in " pep " the deficiency in numbers caused by the action of their weak-kneed brethren Be it said to their credit, too, that they fought loyally and well. In spite of a lack in numbers, the sophs showed a fighting spirit even before the gun. and the Foreign Legion headed by Percy, the hero of four contests— was heartily cheered. The appearance of the Legion changed things considerably, and the frosh began to look askance as the upper-class- men lined up opposite them. t the crack of the gun. however, a fight that bids fair to surpass all future ones for roughness began. Frosh and sophs were soon scattered all oxer Clark Field in squirming, tumbling masses. Long will those first few minutes of play be remembered; for. like the knights " of old. each man fought with all that was in him. The first few minutes resulted in a deadlock, and it seemed as if the sides were evenly matched but toward the latter part of the first quarter the superior experience and organ- ization of the sophs began to tell. Slowly at first and then more rapidly as the frosh weakened, the ball begun to move. By a series of quick shifts, and bv sending man after man over the ball to fall on the heads of the frosh the sophs rushed the ball across. A mighty cheer greeted the first score, and heartened by this temporary success, the sophs increased their efforts. I he rest of the game was comparatively easy. Three times was the ball rushed across the frosh goal, and a minute more of time would have brought another score. The day was a fitting end to the rivalry of the two classes; for the sophs thereby obliter- ated all traces of their humiliation caused by the failure to hold the Freshman President. Of course the main show was the real attraction, but a good many side shows were pres- ent and the ' number of jack-asses and seniors paddled surpassed the expectations of even the ' most optimistic. Taking the day as a whole, it was the most entertaining March 2nd we ' ve had in many years.

Oh. ye ignorants 1 In this year Scardino — Peter M. — entered the University, and his " greatness as an orator and statesman is no doubt due to a great extent to his knowledge acquired while gracing our academic halls with his presence. In the latter part of the winter term — while the race for President of the Frosh was at a white heat — Peter M. Scardino announced his candidacy. It was only after much per- suasion on the part of his ardent admirers that he agreed to take part in the politics of his class, but once in the race the budding statesman put forth every effort. His fiery oratory swayed the multitudes dailv. and the close of each speech produced riots of applause. His keen insight into all problems astounded his humble listeners, and his very presence — his magnetic personality — dominated the stewedent body. Unanimously he was elected: for the Frosh soon realized that the time would come when they might point to Scardino with pride, and whisper: " He was the president of our class in Texas.

Junior Week was an unprecedented success. The series of feature celebra- tions began with a " get together " reception at the Y. M. C. A. The class distinguished itself by wearing the Junior colors during the week. The main object of the whole celebration was to find out who ' s who, and for that purpose all conven- tions were laid aside — everybody spoke to everybody else — and. with a general surge of rising enthusiasm, the Juniors stirred up " pep " thruout the University. After the informal reception at the " Y " followed a theatre party. The big feature of the week was the trip up the Lake, and the celebration closed with a " prom " for the girls at the Woman ' s Gvm and a smoker for the men at the Phi Delta Theta house. The Baby Party In the early spring — about the time when " a young man ' s fancy, " etc. — the Baby Party (and. incidentally, most everything else) was pulled off. The inside, and the outside, of the Gym was crowded with a rip-roaring mob of shrieking babies, some of whom could easily have passed as white hopes. The days of the rag doll and the all-day-sucker were revived with a vengeance for every baby — not only the fortunate few — was amply supplied. Bean Bottle pronounced the party the most successful he had ever seen, but called the Better Baby Contest a failure, because every baby was a better baby. Anyhow, could you expect a mere man to be able to decide? h.. J II IE CACTI rS IQIO L THE CACTUS 1Q1© ' h The Shakespearean Tercentenary Opening on Saturday evening, the 23d of April, with a monster pageant around the Peripitas, in which hundreds of students, gorgeously attired in the gayly colored garments that characterized the Elizabethan era. and followed immediately afterward by a fantastic revel on Clark Field in which Varsity ' s fairest and most graceful dancers performed before an appreciative audience of five thousand people, the great celebration in honor of the three- hundredth anniversary of the death of the Bard of Avon was auspiciously begun. For weeks practically the entire student body had been busy preparing for possibly the greatest spectacular event that has ever successfully been staged in the history of the Uni- versity. For weeks fantastically garbed groups of students had been busy practicing the parts that had been assigned to them by the various instructors who had these groups in charge. The monster pageant followed by the artistic dances on Clark Field proved a fitting culmina- tion for the weeks of time and effort that had been expended by those in charge of the cele- bration. We quote from The American: " The last rays of a brilliant sunset, reluctant to retire beyond vision of such a resplendent scene, shed multi-colored rays over the rollicking masqued actors of the pageant. On every hand minstrels darted, fools and jesters chided and ban- tered the crowd, apple-sellers and sandwich peddlers adjured the crowd to purchase their wares, boistrous buglers sounded their resonant calls in a symphony of raucous blare, hal- berdiers thrust the crowd to the side that the pageant might pass in unmitigated splendor. " Twelve groups of players composed the main body of the pageant, portraying, respec- tively, tableaux, typical of some dramatic moment of some one of Shakespeare ' s plays. Min- strels preceded each group, joyously rendering ballads and minstrel lays, accompanying them- selves with mandolins and guitars. Several of the groups included recitals of the vital por- tions of the plays from which they presented tableaux. Others chose scenes which permitted of the pantomime production, the action being obvious to those familiar with the works of the great Bard of Avon. " Following the pageant, the crowd eagerly adjourned to Clark Field where they were entertained for more than two hours by the graceful trippers of the light fantastic. Leading off were the dances by the boys and girls from the Freshmen gym sections, ably trained by Director Roy B. Henderson and Miss Eunice Aden. Following the Freshmen dances came the beautifully executed aesthetic group dances in which the leading performers were Miss Agnes Dorari as Iris. Miss Katherine Peers as Juno. Miss Florence Bell as Minerva. Miss Genevra Harris as Ceres, Miss Pearl Zilker as Diana, and Miss Annie Louise Stayton as Venus. These various young ladies and their attendants captivated the audience by the gracefulness and beauty with which they danced their respective parts. Following the dances came the acting of a playlet depicting the trial of Sir John Fal- staff, after which was staged the " Bartholomew Faire " under the direction of the dramatic fraternity. Phi Alpha Tau. The assembled throng left their reserved seats, and joyfully be- took themselves to the numerous booths on the east side of the Field, where they regaled them- selves with merry jostling, throwing of confetti, the drinking of soft cider and dancing on the green until a late hour. 258 Ji r II IE CACTI ' S [OlO [ " he remaining days ol the celebration were devoted to lectures on the life and worl ol the famous bard. h distinguished Shaki.-spctin.-an scholars from all over the countrj On Monday.

Ji THE CACTUS IOIO 1 Eugene Van Gent Welcome to Eugene Van Gent, the newly-elected coach of the Texas Longhorns. Mr. Van Gent is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, where as a member of the football and basketball teams, and a mainstay of the Varsity crew, he made a record that will compare favorably with that of any man who ever graduated from that insti- tution. After receiving his degree. Mr. Van Gent went to the Univer- sitj of Missouri, where he served in the capacity of Assistant Athletic Director for a number of vcars. So valuable were his services there, that the university authorities were extremely loth to part with him. and it was only after months of ceaseless negotiations that they could be prevailed upon to release him the ensuing year. In coming to Texas, he accepts no small task. So consistently have the Longhorns won victory in past years, and so few have been the times they have met defeat " , that any coach will necessarily labor under great disadvantages in building up new teams that will equal the famous records of the past. But even at this early date the Wisconsin man has attacked his work with a vim that speaks well for future suc- cesses. Spring football training, the first in the history of this Uni- versity, has alreadv been inaugurated, and by the end of May. the new coach ' will have carefully reviewed all the available material for the next scholastic year. We are expecting great things of Coach Van Gent. We look for- ward to the time when his name will be connected with the University of Texas as is that of Harper with Notre Dame or that of Yost with Michigan. The Three Letter Men of 1916 For the past three vcars. the names of Edmond, Littlefield and Berry have been insep- arably connected with athletics at the University of Texas. All-around athletes, each has won his " T " in three different sports, and in so doing established for himself a name as one of the greatest athletes that has ever donned the Orange and White. Without their services it is difficult to conceive what would have been our share of success in the realm of athletics for the past three seasons. " Bulldog Pete " Edmond bv his grit, determination, and loyalty to his school has made himself a favorite with cverv Texas student. In football, basketball, and baseball, he has fought for Texas, and fought in such a way as to gain for himself the reputation of being a wonderful athlete and a true .clean sportsman. Twice has he captained an undefeated basket- ball team, and he is this year leading to victory the clan of Billy Disch. Clyde Littlefield has proved his worth on the football, basketball, and the track teams. He is the greatest forward-passer in the entire South, and the man around whom has been built the famous open-field plav of the Longhorns. In the high hurdles he has never been pressed by anv man in the Southwest, with the possible exception of Jacobs of Oklahoma. In the T. I. A V meet lust year he startled the local track enthusiasts by equaling the world s record of fifteen seconds flat Clyde also led an undefeated basketball team. Berry, captain of the 1° 15 Longhorns. leading heavyweight on the wrestling squad, and holder of the State and Southwestern records for the shot put, is the third man to win his I in three different sports To " K " fell the strenuous task of upholding the wondertul record of his famous brother, and that he did not fail in its accomplishment even the most skeptical are fi ireed to admit.

We had a great team, a team that would reflect credit upon am institution and a team of which we are |ustl proud Probablj we expected too much of our favorites Probably we had become so accustomed to winning that the idea of losing never entered our heads Suffice it to say that the student body ne er once wavered in their loyal support, that in defeat as well as m victory they stood squarely behind the team, honoring their past achievements and encouraging them to still greater ones in the future. Now as to the causes ol the team ' s failure, if such it might be termed. In the first place misfortune overtook us in the shape of one injury after another. Berry. Paul Simmon I ■ mar. Carlton. Bob Simmons and Walker, men upon whom depended the very life of the team, were kept on the sideline a great part of the time throughout the season Berry went into the Oklahoma game untrained and physically unlit having nursed a sprained ankle for three or four weeks Paul Simmons, probably the foremost star in the great I ' M 3 aggregation and the man from whom the coaches had expected so much was scarcely able to walk until the very end of the season In the Oklahoma. Sewanee and A Si 1 games he played solcU on his wonderful stamina and dauntless nerve. Carlton sustained a broken arm during an early scrimmage, while Dittmar. Bob Simmons. Walker and Blaine were at one time or another forced out ol play by painful injuries. The natural result of all this was that the coaches were unable to perfect that remarkable teamwork which had so characterized those teams that had met defeat only once in the past two years ( nc other point mav well he touched upon, not so much because it easts light upon the past season, as because it mav serve as a warning to the future teams People whispered to one another that there was some dissension among the plavcrs which was preventing them giving their best efforts to the game But this was stamped out completely at the end ol the season, if not before, and is mentioned here only as a caution and admonition to the future- wearers o| the Orange and White As to the season itself, it was a successful one even though we lost three ol our most im- portant games The old line played as it always has. successfully resisting the attack ol ev erv backlicld that we met. always " holding, always " making opening lm r 1 -1 ■ 1 .1 ag, o| ih, plunging backs On the offensive as well as defensive thev played a brand ol football that made them feared and respected by every team in the whole Southwest.

AS received this year from the " prep " schools over the state, a wealth of new football material. In connection with the Scrubs, the sturdy Freshmen fought the first team throughout the long season, helping to perfect the playing of the Long- horns, and gaining fbr themselves added football experience for the years to come. Like the Shorthorns, they played through all their games without once having their colors dragged in the dust. Perhaps their most noteworthy achievement was the decisive defeat of the Terrell School eleven in Dallas. This strong " prep " team had been uniformly victorious for the past six year, having never met defeat at the hands of a single rival. But when the Texas Freshmen journeyed to Dallas last fall, they ruthlessly upset what had come to be a tradition in the Terrell School, and forced the " preps " to accept the short end of a 25 to 7 score. To name the stars of the " Frosh " would be a difficult task. They represent the best football material to be found in the preparatory schools of the state last year, and here in the University fully lived up to the reputations that had preceded them. Among those whose work attracted special notice were: Waits, Sens, Lang, Puett, Penn, and Allen. Upon these men and their team-mates will rest the future of football at Texas for the next few years. h.. Jk II IK CACTI S lOio- Paul Forty Yards Around End in the T. C. U. Game The Ganmeg T. C. U. GAME (October 2) 72—0. Texas started the season against T. C. U. in true mid-season form. By straight line bucks, dashing end runs, and a goodly sprinkling of neatlv executed forward passes, the Christians were swamped to the tune of 72 to 0. The initial score came in the first three minutes of play, and from then on it was onlv a question of how far short of the century mark the final result would fall. At full-back. Walker crashed through the lighter purple line time after time, while Littlefield, Trabue. and the Simmons brothers raced at will around the ends. The Texas line was practically impenetrable — but that was to be expected. For T. C. U.. Nelson and Cox excelled. The line-up Edmond. right end; Birge. right tackle.

Against Daniel Baker, the Longhorns stampeded and ran wild, incidentally setting up a new Texas record for the number of points scored against an opponent. Touchdown followed touchdown with such startling regularity that at the end of four quarters of sensational plaj ' in; on the part of the Texas eleven the score had mounted to the high-water mark ol 92 to 0. " Bob " and Paul Simmons again circled the ends for distances of from 10 to 60 yards, while Littlefield uncorked an even dozen beautiful forward passes, the longest of which measured half the length of the gridiron. For the first time during the 1915 season Paul played havoc with the opposing team bv his headlong dives. For Texas the whole team starred, while on the Daniel Baker side of the line Anderson and R. Prentice played consistent and effective The following men plaved: Edmond. Birge. Johnson, Carlton, Goodman, Duncan, Turner. R. Simmons, P. Simmons. " Littlefield, Walker, Simpson. Trabue, Montgomery. Dolan. RICE GAME (October lb) 59—0. The pluckv Owls from Houston were the next victims. Though outweighed by the wearers of the Orange and White, the men from the Institute plaved hard, clean football, and kept the Longhorns on their toes throughout the entire game. At the end of the first quarter the score stood only b to but from then on the Texas backs marched steadily down the field play alter play keeping the scorers busv at the south end of the gridiron. Paul Simmons led the attack, aided and abetted by Walker ' s plunging and the forward passing of Clyde Littlefield r;or Rice Brown plaved a good game both on the defense and oftense. It was his attack during the last quarter that so nearly gained a touchdown for the Owls. Had he not been injured he might have saved his team the shutout. The line-up was Turner. Edmond. Duncan. Goodman. Dittmar. Montgomery. Birge. Trabue, Littlefield. Paul Simmons. Walker. Blaine, Simpson. Ogden. Johnson. Dolan.

For the first time in three years rexas was beaten by a Southwestern eleven, and then only by a narrow margin of one point The game itself was a fight from start to finish Within the first five minutes ,,| play, Texas rushed Oklahoma oil her feet, and Paul Simmons, though limping from a badly sprained knee, raced at will around the Sooner ends With ten yards to go. Walker made a quick plunge through right tackle for the remaining distance and a touch- down. Oklahoma succeeded in t ing the score, and for the next fifteen minutes, both teams battled fiercely in the middle ol the field Then, at the beginning of the third quarter, came COnd touchdown, and though Edmond failed to kick goal again the Orange and White seemed destined to prevail But during the last quarter. Oklahoma uncorked a series of dazzling, baffling forward passes, and with Simmons, the man who had been specifically coached for just such an emergency, out of the line up. the Texas backs were unable to cope with the trying situation. A forward pass. Geyer to Johnson, shot true and the Sooner quarter- back raced over the line for Oklahoma ' s second touchdown. With the score tied. Geyer kicked a difficult goal for the winning point of the game. For Texas Walker on the defensive and on the offsensive. the same Walker played the best ball. Paul Simmons and his brother " Bob ' ' were sure ground-gainers, while Dittmar stopped one Sooner back after another who had pierced the Texas line. For Oklahoma Coach Owens was the star, for it was his head work that gained the Sooner team the victory. In the actual playing Geyer. Johnson, Capshaw. Fields and Montgomery made things hot for the Texas team The line up: — Turner. Duncan. Goodman, Dittmar. Birgc. Berry. Edmond, R. Simmons. P. Simmons. Littlcficld, Walker, Kelso. Johnson.

SOUTHWESTERN GAME Octobcr 3m 45—0 Burton Rix next brought his " Freshman " team to do battle with the Longhorns, and a right worthy account did the Methodists give oi themselves. For the first quarter, thej held the heavier Texas team scoreless, but after that the Longhorns found themselves, and be- gan steads marches to the Orange and Black goal that netted a total of 45 points before the end of the game.

For the first time this year, it came to a full realization of its own inherent strength, and playing brilliant, powerful foot-ball downed its old rivals by the biggest score ever rolled up in the history of the athletic relations of the two institutions. The veteran line of the Sewaneeites, consisting of Dobbins, Perry, Turner and Leftwich, met its master in the sturdy rampart of the Texans, while the Longhorn backfield with its well nigh perfect interference, crashing plunges, dashing end runs and Littlefield ' s baffling forward passes, swept down the field in a triumphant march to victory. The stars of the Longhoms were Littlefield, Walker and Turner. The giant halfback hurled the pigskin forty-five yards into the waiting arms of Walker and Turner, while the Mountaineers looked on in helpless amazement at the most brilliant exhibition of the new game ever displayed in the Southwest. The victors: — Turner, Duncan. Goodman. Dittmar. Birge, Berry. Edmond, R. Sim- mons, P. Simmons, Blaine. Walker, Kelso. Trabue, Simpson, Johnson, Waits, ALABAMA GAME (November 13) 20—0 Fresh from their victories over the Sewanee Tigers, the Alabamans came to match their wits and strength against the Texans. They had heard that the success of the Texas team was due to brilliant open field work, and they prepared for the emergency. When, on the evening of the game, Allerdice was forced to send a makeshift team on a soggy and rain soaked field, things looked rosy for the players from the Queen City. Then it happened. Texas completely changed her line of attack and resorted to the old time plunging, end run game with such remarkable success as to humble her opponents 20 to 0. Alabama could do little with our line, and still less around our wary ends. Little- field. Walker and Turner were at their best. Ray Williams, at quarter, played his initial game in a smooth aggressive way that argues well for his success next year. For Alabama, the great Vandegraff played like a demon. It was he who twice sent a rain soaked and muddy ball half the distance of the playing field only to miss the uprights by a few feet. The Texas line up: — Edmond. Berry, Birge. Dittmar. Goodman. Duncan. McMurray. Littlefield. Williams. Turner. Kelso, Walker. Waits, Carlton.

His work in three major sports is known all over the Southwest, but it is not to his hard game at end on the foot-ball team, not to his consistent work at guard on the Varsity Quintette, not to his brilliant playing at third on the diamond; not to any of these is his popularity due. but to his unselfish devotion to clean sport and his undying loyalty to the team. Determination and grit are the key words to his success Never for a minute did he lie down, never once did he give to Texas less than his best.

WALKER 160 pounds of pure ' grit. Though light lor his position. Burt played a smashing game at fullback and his powerful drives will long be remembered by both his team-mates and the men who played against him. In the Oklahoma game, especially, Burt played stellar foot-ball. Time after time he plowed through that heavy red line for substantial gains. Time after time he stopped some Sooner back who had pierced Texas ' first line of defense. So sure was his tackling and so crashing his drives against Oklahoma that Coach Allerdice is reported to have said, that in that contest. Burt Walker plaved the greatest individual game of foot-ball that he had ever seen. What more could any Texas player desire than that he might leave the foot-ball field for the last time with such words from his coach ringing in his ears? PAUL SIMMONS Paul must be classed as the most sensational and easily one of the greatest halfbacks in Southern foot-ball. With his clever side stepping, powerful stiff-arming, wonderful speed, and reckless diving, Paul was a terror to all opposing teams at the first of the season. Then came the first of our many misfortunes during the past year. Paul received a " never get well " injury in practice that troubled him the whole season, so that he was sent only into those games that demanded his presence. That even though crippled he lived up to his past reputation may well be judged by the following report of the Sewanee game: " Paul Simmons around right end; 33 yards. Time out for Sewanee.

The big guard, working together with such men as Jordan, Dittmar, Birge. Berry, Carlton, and Duncan has made the Texas line the terror of everj backfield in the Southwest. And never once did Goodman fail that line when his services were needed In the Scwancc game two years ago, cocaine was injected into his ankles to deaden the pain that made walking a torment to him. But in he went and the playing ol Goodman at righi guard wa a big factor in the Texas victory on that day. Powerful, with a good knowledge ol foot-ball and an over abundance of downright nerve. Goodman has proved to be a man whose place it will be hard to till next ear. L J THE CACTUS IQIO BOB SIMMONS For the past two years Coach Allerdice has been confronted with the problem of making a quarter-back, in 1914 Len Barrell was the solution: in 1915 Bob Simmons. Bob was originally an end. but in the capable hands of the Texas coach, he developed into a finished quarter-back before the curtain was rung down on the 1915 foot-ball season. A ten second man on the cinder path, he circled the ends in whirlwind fashion, eluding tackier after tackier. But Bob ' s chief merit lay in his uncanny ability to stay on his feet. So quick was his dodging and so certain his footing that at times it seemed impossible to bring him down. In the Notre Dame game, he was at his best, starting the contest with a return of the kick-off for fifty yards and continuing it with masterly work on both the offense and defense. Bob will not be back next DUNCAN It is not often that a line man can be said to play spectacular foot-ball, but Baker Duncan is an exception to this rule. Many a time he broke into the lime light by a whirlwind tackle which left the opposing back many yards behind his battle line. Baker came to us from the University of Virginia, and in his one year of Texas athletics has made an enviable record. On the foot-ball and basket- ball teams, he has already proved his worth, and he is now glad- dening the eyes of Coach Disch by his maneuvers on the diamond. Baker leaves us in June. CARLTON " Fats. " with his peculiar combination of genial good humor and whole hearted playing, has made himself one of the most popular athletes in school. In an early scrimmage, he sustained a broken arm. and Texas followers were afraid that he would be unable to play again the past season. But they little realized the " timber " out of which the big fellow is made. He was begging to be put back into the game before his arm was well out of a sling, and only the coach ' s absolute refusal was enough to keep him out. In the Alabama game, he was allowed to return and from then on until the end of the season, Alva was to be found in the line questioning the right of any opponent to advance through his side. In thinking of the future, it might be well to remember that he will return next year.

A THE CACTUS lOl© SIMPSON Big Simpson proved his worth on the Shorthorns in 1° 14. and was this year rewarded with a berth among the regulars. As a sub- stitute line man he fought in great style, never failing to more than hold his own whenever called upon to take his place on the field. Next year there will fall to the lot of him and a few others the task of rebuilding the famous line broken up by the graduation of so many stars in June. With his added experience and natural foot-bail ability he should accomplish great things for the Orange and White in 1916 JOHNSON Gillis is another graduate of the 1914 Shorthorns. He has two of the essential qualities of a true foot-ball player — great strength and dauntless nerve. Next to Berry he was probably the most power- ful man on the team. He always threw into the game besides great brawn and power, a whole hearted determination to do his best and at the end of the season success came to him in the form of the coveted " T. " Upon Johnson. Carlton and Simpson will next year depend the strength of the Texas line — a fact that is a source of much satisfaction to the followers of the Orange and White. Gillis has three more years to play for Texas. TRABUE Billy was the lightest man on the team but also one of the fastest. Though weighing only 140 pounds, he was very quick and an excellent dodger. Often he would be seen streaking his way in a zig-zag course down and across the field while grasping tacklers seemed absolutely unable to check his flight. In the Alabama game, " with 15 to go, " he picked his way straight through the line and circled behind the goal posts without having been touched by a single opponent — quite a feat in line plunging Billy has three more years J r II IE CAC I ! s ic)io DOC HENRY i- onlj a negro; but tKe news ,,| his death will be heard with a sense of personal losv bj everj alumnus and former student of the I niversitj ol Texas, whose con- nection with that institution lasted long enough for him to imbibe that spun ol association which a quarter-century and more of existence has thrown around the graying walls of the college.

Third The 1915 Baseball Season 1915 baseball team went through a formidable schedule of twenty-seven games th only two defeats to mar it otherwise clean slate. The State championship, lich rexas has held for the seasons of 1913 and 14. was again won by the Long- rns rwo factors were largelv responsible for the excellent showing made by 5 nine The greater ol these was the masterly coaching of Billy Disch. While connected with athletics at le as. Mr. Disch has never failed to produce a winner. During tlic seasons of I913- ' 14- ' 15, Varsity won eighty-five games and lost only eleven, which record is .m eloquent testimonial to his ability as a coach. The other determining factor in the success of Texas on the diamond was the wealth of excellent material available for the team. Eleven members of the famous aggregation that established a world s record for consecutive victories and won two state championships, were on hand at the start of the season As a team. Texas ranked first in the fielding averages of the T I A A . and third in batting It- greatest strength, however, lav in its pitchers, whose work was truly remarkable, and who are as good a collection of twirlers as anv college can boast of possessing The Longhorns inaugurated the T.

His record as an ath- more brilliant than his record for scholarship and character as a man off the athletic field Every opponent became his Iriend and no friend his opponent. His " bulldog tenacity characterizes him on every athletic field, and his guarding of the third station has cr materially blighted the hopes of many aspirants for the champion- ship honors and conferred them on the Longhorn team. His absence in all sports will be keenly felt at the close of next season. ANDERSON ' fildy. " for lour years the premier receiver of college in the Southwest, finished an enviable record as a catcher at the end of last season. He was sought bv several members ol the I e as League but spurned their overtures to pursue his chosen profession. the Taw His work behind the hat was one of the most potent factors in securing lour state, three Southwestern and one world champion- ship lor the wearers of the Orange and White Coach Disch says that he would never go on the field during a game if all the men were like " Tildy He is one o| the cleanest and best athletes that ever donned a Longhorn uniform It is regretted vcrv much that he will be absent from the 1916 line-up L J ► THE CACTUS lOlO CONE " Ike " will long be remembered by the admirers of college ball as one of the most dependable and sure men that ever mounted the slab for Texas. Like his team-mate " Tildy, " he also played four vears and during that time was called on to bear the brunt of the pitching work for the Longhom team. Coach Disch always saved " Ike " for the important game, knowing that his curves, speed and head would beat almost any team in the circuit. His no-hit, no-run. 5-0 game against Southwestern last season will go down in the annals of University games as the most perfect exhibition of his ability as a " star twirler " ever seen in Texas. During his four years he pitched 41 games and won 28. a record certainly to be proud of. His hitting abilitv would do credit to an outfielder. WINSTON ' Hoss. " " The Speed Demon " and " Spit-Ball Artist " of South- college circles, was only with the Longhorns two seasons, being barred the other two seasons on account of the summer base- ball rule. " Gran " as Coach Disch was wont to call him. was called upon manv times to do slab duty for the Longhorns and many times did his opponents " whiff the zephyrs. " His great physical strength enabled him to do extra work, and he was often called on to pitch in case of a pinch. His speed was his chief asset, and it was the terror of those who faced him in the batter ' s box. Hoss ' s speed along with Cone ' s cool headwork. and Bailey ' s curves formed for the Longhorn team the most efficient and versatile pitching staff that ever repre- sented a University in the Southwest. BAILEY " Dick, " the " Major Leaguer " of Texas played with the Long- horns in his Freshman and Sophomore years, but that summer joined the " Athletics " and was therefore ineligible for the next season. By a change in the rule, however, he was again permitted to assume the role of a Longhorn twirler. and a better one we never had. Dick ' s curves combined with his speed made him a valuable man for any team His quick-breaking curve was sure to add another strike-out to his list when he got a 3-2 on a batter. Dick says that he is going to forsake the national pastime and show the " J. P s " that he is as good in the court-room as he is on the mound. II IE CACTI s ic)io W II WIS Freshman and •Ray.

' ' the man with an arm that shoots the ball like a " 40- centimeter " siege gun, played his fourth and last year on the team. He guarded the left garden in the best of fashion, and was a demon with the stick and on the bases. His record for four years, not a runner scoring from third on a fly to left field, is an enviable one. and equalled by few college ball players. He could cover as much ground as any man that ever capered in those gardens. The trio of Fowler, Hooper and Cartwright formed a defense in the rear that was impregnable He is another one of Denton ' s good athletes. MONNING " Pop. " alias " Prate, " realized at last the value of attending a good school and came over from Southwestern. While there he played second base and was one of the hardest hitters in the college baseball circle. He was barred here for the first year on account of the one-year rule. He started the season this year in the center garden, but was called in to fill his old place at the pivotal station, made vacant when Gambrell was shifted to short to take the place of Mike. " Pop " hit his stride at the last of the season and was walking away with the hitting honors when the year closed. He is an invaluable man to have on the infield and it is to be regretted that the degree rule will bar him next year. MAYS " Gus " was one of the hardest hitters on the team. This is his second appearance on the Longhorn line-up, but he did not get in enough games to get his letter last season. On the " left-hand hitting " combination he played left field and filled the place credit- ably. With the Gambrell ' -Mays-Cartwright left-hand lead-off, it was practically impossible to keep the Longhorns from scoring in the first inning. Gus is a fast man and is a source of a great deal of worry to the pitcher when he gets on the bases. This is his second year, and he ought to go strong on the 1916 nine.

With marvelous ability and good baseball sense, under the tutelage nl Coach Disch. acknowledged leader ol all baseball coaches in this section of the country, Alike had in three years developed into the most prom- ising player that ever wore a I onghorn uniform. So spectacular was his fielding SO certain his " batting eye. " and so brilliant his base running, that he attracted the attention of several big league managers, and the very week he left school received an attractive offer from the Cleveland Americans. In order to better realize " Mike ' s " position in college baseball, let us review the account of the 1 14 Longhorns as given in " Spal- ding ' s Official Baseball Guide. " In speaking of his playing during the year, the guide says " The 1°14 team was replete with stars, but Massey, the phe- nomenal shortstop, was easily the leader Being his second year on the team, he hit at a clip of .37°). and led the team in base running and run getting, scoring 41 runs and stealing 40 bases. Massey. captain for 1915, is perhaps the best infieldcr in college baseball in the South He is a wonderful fielder, great base runner, and a phe- nomenal hitter. His best feat is ten times at bat in two games and ten hits.

But at the end of the season, misfortune came to him in the shape of heart trouble brought on by the too strenuous work of the preceeding three months, for the little fellow always put all he had into every race. From that day unto this, he has never fully recovered, and though laboring under the protests of physicians, made us a steady miler last year. As a leader of the squad, he never failed to instill into them the " old-time pep. " To him loafing was the greatest sin a track man could commit. JORDAN Louie, the big " Swede. " wearied away the long spring months in hurling the hammer and discus. As his parting feat of strength he set a new record in the hammer throw for a distance of 141 feet 2 inches. Jordan was not only a great athlete, but one of the most popular men in the University. Even the men who played against him became his staunch friends, because they realized that in him they had an antagonist who was a true gentleman and clean sport. It will probably be a long time before we get another man of his all-around ability. n ! L1TTLEF1ELD The most dependable man on the team was Clyde Littlefield. He won a name for himself by tying the world ' s intercollegiate record in the high hurdles. A total of 55 points, or over one-sixth of all the points made by the Longhoms during the entire season, could be traced directly ' to his wonderful work.

With three more years on the cinders for the Orange and White, it is impossible to tell what records he will smash before the end of his days in Texas athletics. To say the least. Coach Metzenthin will lose no sleep over the sprints for several years to come. HODGES " Mac " is a natural runner. When he first appeared in a suit on Clark Field, and began taking his turn on the track, the coaches sized him up immediately as likely material for the Texas team. And it was not long until he made himself known, for in the meet at A. » M., he broke the state record for the mile. Then, during the Southwestern meet, both the state and Southern records fell before the steady pace that carried him over the 880 in 2 minutes and % seconds. In his remaining years at Texas, we look for still more record-breaking on his part. BOB SIMMONS Bob ' s sunny disposition, coupled with his natural ability, gained for him a place on any athletic team for which he tried.

This has been due to the advance in the ability of our own team and in the teams of other institutions in the state The Longhorns have met with opposition in 28 contests during the past two seasons. without defeat Out of twelve games the past season, the Longhorns scored $60 points to 185 for their opponents In 1 15. out of 14 games, the Varsity quintette scored 585 points to their opponents 250 The season opened with more than fifty contestants for the team, every member of last year ' s quintette being back except one. Dittmar, after recovering from an injury received last season, came back in unusual form with added experience that comes only to a veteran player. Duncan and Thompson were the strong recruits of the season. Thompson, with several years ol experience under Coach Bellmont in Houston, was immediately whipped into shape b Coach Henderson and admirably succeeded to the position of right forward, made vacant bv Ross being ineligible, due to the three-year rule. Duncan, the utility man. played a consistent game throughout; whether at guard or center, he was always in the game. With Edrnond and Dittmar plaving guards. Blaine and Thompson forwards. Littleficld and Duncan center, the 1916 team was perhaps the best all-around team that Varsitj has ever turned out Without hitch or flaw these veterans of the game stood forth in all their splendor as the representative undefeated team of the I nivcrsity.

At the outset Coach Henderson determined upon an offensive system ol play, His words to each player on the eveofthe battlewere " Fellows, the score counts With this determination he has succeeded in piling up the largest score ever made bv a I Diversity basketball team, and that without a single defeat to mar the record. The coach stressed the idea of open play in an offensive wav It was his hobby to have Dittmar guard the opponent ' s basket with the remainder of the team scoring fi n ai it; in the offensive end of the court.

He is a true leader in every sense ol the word and one upon whom every player in a crisis of the game, will look for support and power to win.

He is the most aggressive forward in the state and it is to his credit, as much as any other member of the team, that the record of the Varsity five remains undefeated for a third successive season. His offensive ' abilitv is wonderful, and he has a keen eye for the basket. You can depend on Bob in the pinch of the game for the score that defeats the opposing team. In the Rice game at Houston, Bob was Varsitv ' s mainstay and made the winning score that gave the team the laurels of the day. We look to Bob to pilot the 1917 team to victory and we predict a fourth undefeated season. THOMPSON Joe came as the surprise of the season. He made good from the jump and played like a veteran throughout the year. His training at Houston under Bcllmont and Henderson began at once to tell. He started scoring from the first and piled up 145 points. Joe, like Ross of last year ' s team, may be said to be the man who added the thrills to the game. There was no angle on the court from which he did not ring the basket, and his ability at " long shots ' was re- markable. If vou judge him in the words of the coach, the score counts, " he is perhaps secondary to no player seen upon the court this season. We predict for Joe a remarkable basketball career. Yes. you can casil fellow playing center DUNCAN distinguish " Dune. " — he is the big, tall ith the wonderful reach. " He came to us from Virginia, but we cannot hold that against him. He has won our admiration, not only as the aggressive center and utility man of the Varsity quintette, but as the thrilling line smasher of the Longhorn ' eleven and a most affable and agreeable companion. Dune is a hard fighter and his ability as a utility man has been a strong asset to the team. Coach Henderson ' s estimation of him is that he is " the hardest scrapper of the game. " J r II 11 .

In the only two games of the year, the Texans each time met defeat at the hands of the strong Baylor team by the narrow margin of 2 to 0. Small wonder , however, when we consider the disadvantages under which the Texas team labored. The Bears played through a schedule of 14 games, gaining added experience each time they met a new rival, while the Longhorns engaged in the fray only twice during the whole season. Games had been scheduled with three ' other teams but all of these refused to sign contracts at the very last minute. With a better schedule and more encouragement from the proper sources, soccer should win a sure place as an intercollegiate sport next year.

I ' I am here ' The Jays broaden and the fields grow green, and while the lazy stude stretches and languishes one upon the campus grass in the seeming abandon that .onus only with March winds and April showers, let us our heads in silent retrospect and ponder upon some of the fleeting events of the past nine months. Williams, drooping in his senile uselessness, has been appointed High Rat of the Li- brary: the temples of Justice have been usurped by the people from the high- ways and the byways; grim politicians sit upon the liel of the Council and besmear the law and things as their passions and prejudices may so permit; the day of the hilarious is doomed and drowned in the ungainly din of roller skates and cheap skates crawling in the German windows at K. C. Hall; the lowly hoot of all. Cicero, of the many tribes of Smith, has sat upon the throne of the great circus by the side of his consort of the fair blonde locks; a football season came upon us and bowed our heads; Swearingen, the Chief Toad of the Lilliputs, furrowed his brow and schemed and ran the brawn of Simmons for the Tammany nomination for Cap. of the leven; humor and wit suffer, under the libel of the shiny usurper, the Longhorn; and the house of Sells with Jacoby ' s, occupies a place in the mire of the dim andjdistant past. Peace peace; let us away. This is indeed a changed place. k. J -■ THE CACTUS IQIO : V Alpha Tau Omegas Entertain Varsity Prexy Before His Acceptance is Made No sooner had The Texan extra announced the election of the Reverend as our prexy than the ato bunch, his then frat brothers, gathered their tribe together for one grand session of rejoicing. Now in the good old days when the bunch had some live chapters in schools of Austin College ' s and Southern Presbyterian University ' s type, our new president was one of the boys. He was a member of the grand old Alpha Tau. the organization John Erhard talked so much about after he went to the only conclave they ever had. Papa John, garbed in ministerial black, assisted by old Palmer, were fit heads of the receiving line. Such things as Birge Holt, the Fort Worth acquisition, and Curtis, the boy from New Mexico, were there, too. The old dance hall was converted into a chapel and the minister accompanied by his wife and three daughters walked in. to the tune of the music sung in Shuler ' s tent across the street. It was a glorious occasion, and the good old boys on twenty-fourth talked of the good bunch they had and how their frat house was once a church, and how they led such a moral life (with the exception of a little tne dissipation), etc. Even Sox Jones and Hoss Saner talked on morality, and the dear doctor, who will assume the role of president July 1, was very much pleased at the splendid showing the bunch made. He told of the great advantages of the fraternity system and how he had talked about them at Dallas at a banquet when he was the only sober man present. In fact it was a great re- juvenation of old frat pep. The Thorn ' s representative who had been invited to cover the happenings of the evening was reminded of the time when Prexy Mezes used to meet the X s . in assemblies, etc. The meeting closed in prayer, and all the boys and the prexy walked out, knowing that he was one of the most fortunate men, for having in his early days affiliated himself with this groin 1 ) organization. The 1916 H. A. Following is Calter Wamp ' s " Hall American " selection for the University year.

Meade Griffin, and some of the Loose cohorts. Now it had been the plan of the one Barb triumvirate, namely Lynn, who is not in school this year, Holliday and Griffin to monopolize the office known as president of the Students ' Association. Meade was to lead off. Sam was to follow, and Lynn .who will return next year when Meade graduates, was to follow the third year. All of these men are loyal followers and admirers of one A. Garland Adair, the dear boy who has made such a fine record since his departure from school. At any rate the plan was spilled the other night and this is the way it was related to the Thorn ' s representative. Tom. who was permanent chairman of the said Barb executive committee, called his dele- gation together. They had made up their minds prior to the meet and when it was finally decided that there would be no Barb Convention the minority element of the said committee raised a characteristic howl and screamed, " frame-up! " but the dirt was done. Sunrise had fixed it so there would be no official Barb Convention and with a statement in The Daily Taxem a few days later the chairman in splendid terms emancipated the few honest Barbs in school and told them that they would no longer be bound to support Boob Holliday or Poli- tician Girffin ' s policies, and for once in the history of the old institution they would have the right to exercise their suffrage as free and independent human beings instead of the Barb or the whipped cur type of the past. Clean politics was at last seen in the Barb ranks and it was Old Sunrise who did it. He was in for blood and he got it at the expense of Holliday and Griffin, the self-named Papas of the rough-neck element. A monument will be erected to the memory of old Sunrise right near the old Students ' Wnciation room where all the dirt was done J r THE CA 1010 o T LOTSA PEP? ROSEJ2 CIKE5THE CCoWJ WESTWARD HO.

IL. j .- THE CACTUS IOIO Found in Maggie ' s Waste Basket Dearest Maggie: — Since 1 last saw you i have entered the University of Texas, and of course I. as all other girls, have been taken around to the various sorority houses. And be- lieve me. they certainly have a gay bunch here in this old school. Maggie, if you will bear with me for a while. I will tell you of some of the places where I was rushed, for it certainly was a treat, and I know that you would have enjoyed everything immensely had you been with me. First, we went to a place they called the Pi Phi House This is a cunning little congre- gation upon Whitis Avenue. They all seemed to be very much in love with some boys they called the good old Sigma Alpha Epsilons. whom they said were really not so very bad after all They had a fellow up there named Hervey Humlong, who lives way out at Roscoe some- where Beauford Jester. Palmer Bradley. Dick Bailey, and a few other such things as that were around, but the girls told me that they just came occasionally and not to worry about them annoying me should I become a Pi Phi. That was some consolation. They said that thev had made a big swoop this year in copping the little Haswell and Seale girls from Bryan, but when I saw them I really didn ' t think they looked like so much after all. Next I journeyed across the street to a house they called the Kappa Alpha Thetas. They were the mother-loving kind, but very few of them looked like young girls with any " pep. ' ' Thev had that don ' t care look, and the girls across the street said that their boarders were few and far between. At any rate, they did have a little peroxide blonde from Sweet Briar sitting in one corner debating whether or not she would go with " Pep ' ' or " Khaki ' ' to some particular dance that everybody was talking about which came off that evening. They had a girl they called Dudie who talked a whole lot. but somebody afterward explained that she had gotten to be pretty much of a has-been, even if she did show her independence by giving Bob Simmons the can. I had directions given me to the Kappa House, but on my way to the comer where I had been told to go. I passed an old yellow tenement house on 24th. It was in a dilapidated condition, and all the inmates wore a look of discontent, so I reached for my smelling salts and passed on. Next I found myself on the Kappa veranda. I met slavers of people, the names of some of them, as near as I can remember, were Mabel. Beaut. Clif Moss. Boob Putnam, sweet little Lawrence Tarlton. Lemon Buddy, a crop of McQueens, (they said they had more coming on). Skinny Norment. Rex Knut Shaw, a giddy catch of Freshmen sisters, a drawl from El Paso, and somebody they called Leona. To cap the climax, they said they didn ' t see why they were not a strorlg sorority. This was too much, and 1 ran away just as quickly as I could. After going where 1 had been directed. I saw a rent sign tacked on the door of the Alpha Delta Pi House, and it was all off for me there. Next 1 thought of some people whom 1 had heard called the Tri Deltas and the good old Phi Mews, but my conscience hurt, and you know, Maggie, what we always did when we had that little trickling feeling in our right side. 1 stopped for a moment, and then thinking that 1 had not gone to see a bunch called the Zetas. 1 took a jitney at McFadden ' s Drug Store and soon found myself near the old beanery on 19th and Colorado Streets. There were those giddy Del Rio twins. Mary Anne and Kitty, the little cotton-headed Greenlee girl from Corsicana. Skinny May Bonner and numerous others of the circus type. They all seemed to stick around and do what Mary Anne said, and one of them whispered to me confidentially that they considered her the real social lioness of the bunch. Gosh! Some freshman punched me while another queer looking light-head was talking to me, and told me that the girl ' s name was Fern and that she was a dead one and not to worry. One of them came out with a pledge button and the rest screamed, but it was no use. I had decided- My mind was made up. I had been in a dilemma for several hours as to whether or not 1 would remain at the University and be a sorority girl, or whether 1 would be a barbarianess. or whether I would finally end up back with you. And now, sweet- heart. I am decided. Mid-term reports are out. I " have seen the life and the Dean thinks that I had best come home. So you can count on me being with you soon. My college days are ended, and the truth is that I was pledged to practically every one of these so-called secret organizations before I saw the others. They didn ' t know it. at least they say they didn t. and since Dean Parlin, who is an ex-sorority member, will not let me stay here. I need not tell anyone but you that I told them all " yes 1 " I will tell you some other facts that simply cannot go on paper when we next meet Lovingly.

And I am not seen in public places with this admirer of mine. for. like all of his fraternity brothers who come over to see the girls at the sorority house where I stay, he does not take me out to places, where there is anything like a public gathering and an admission fee to be en- countered. He and his friends come over at nights and warm our chairs and porch furniture and very seldom do we go to places where we will be seen by other people.

Arriving they found Brothers Dunlap and Bob Simmons in a deadly embrace. Re- porters for Ye Thome having slipped in during the melee and unobserved by the doorkeepers West and Walker, who were down to the Avenue lapping up suds and off the job. saw the brave policemen separate the two combatants and handcuffing them lead them away to jail. Here they were soon released on bail put up by Dearbrother Lutcher. It appears that Brother Simmons wished to have the funny old Coyote to play with him- self, but Brother Dunlap. owning the thing, could not see it that way and besides he just did not like that Simmons fellow anyway. So Brother Simmons taps his empty, goes by the Theta House for sympathy, and blows off to the Austin merchants as how the Coyote has changed its name to the Longtailed Cow. The guys all fall for the stuff and Brother Simmons afterwards almost gets pinched by the federal authorities for telling that old dope through the mail, but Brother Dunlap fell a bit short in his efforts to send Brother Simmons to the Pen. Brother Shaw and the other brothers on the thing now are getting out a swell sort of a paper. They call it humorous and are even now planning getting up a joke for it some time, and to that end are spending lots of time with themselves and other funny things to gather up inspiration. Along about March the Federal authorities and cops and things began to warm up on the trail and poor Brother Simmons had to flag his carcass to Canada to escape ten years of making little ones out of big ones. Of course the light-headed Theta, who is now receiving a swell rush by the local Yiddishcrs. gave him the frail and cold shoulder and his frat pin back. It was once again last fall in the Phi Gam attic that Swear- ingen was busily scratching his bean and mopping his one-inch brow in the desperate endeavor to scare up something to keep the old sorority within a mile of the map. After having done so for some time he let out a great whoop that brought Brother Bob Simmons from under a bed. where he had been arranging himself against the arrival of a Federal cop. and outlined the great and brainy scheme of placing Brother Paul in nomination for the great political office of the Grand Shebang of the Eleven. Robert thought well of the scheme and borrowing the frat bank account ($.32), went out in search of votes. After a few minutes of work he bought out the mighty Turner ' s interest in the honor for a promise of a Phi Gam bid and after placing the other bunch of cat judiciously among the others, he went home to tell Brother Paul what a great honor he was going to get. Paul wasn ' t so got up about the business for he himself had almost forgot the famous days of 1913 when he used to dive and make a course now and then, and besides Beaut hadn ' t toid him yet that he could run. Anyway, he fell for the stuff and made a beautiful race and won the admiration and applause of everyone so much that he is now thinking of running for dinner or something some time soon on the Boob ticket. At a late hour Ye Thome is still trying to induce Brother Lutcher to give solid cheese medals to the eight wise ones who tied up things.

Mr. Purcell had for some time been busy making elaborate preparations for the affair, but it was not known until immediately before the dance that he had chosen himself to be the main headliner Mr. Purcell distinguished himself, not only for his great dignity of bearing and superb manners, which are always so evident, but also for his elaborate dressing and graceful dancing. His attire was a semi-full dress affair. The coat was borrowed from his brother Al. who purchased it for the occasion of his marriage with old Mirandv Wilson in 1908. His trousers were full cut. and were brought from Tennessee in 18b8. when the President s father first came to this state. He wore a full dress tie, and in place of the usual diamond stud in his shirt front. President Purcell showed his individuality by adorning his manly chest with a good luck horse-shoe stick pin obtained as a souvenir with a can of Good Luck baking powder. His cuff buttons were also unique, having been obtained in a slot machine at the Dallas Fair last vear. His dancing was easily the big stunt of the evening, and before the alfaii bver he had won for himself the appellation of Vernon Castle President Purcell has alsi extinguished himself as a poet, his chief poems being The Bughouse Hasn tootten Me Yet. and " Oh.

(Oof!) Ted Drury said " Damn " at the dinner table and the treas- ury was increased 10c. Jube Parten rushes the little Woodley girl, while Satchel A. Hart spends his time with preps tothe amusement of Yankee Brown of Ft. Worth. " Some d n Delta Chi did it. " — Dick Hooper. DELTA TAU DELTA— We think we have a second Luke Hoffman in the person of Silas Ragsdale. whom we hope will be able to boost the Baraca Taus into a fraternity some day. He was nominated for Managing Editor of the Texan after much consideration by the other staff members. Sister Renick is still with us. Although uninitiated, her sym- pathy is with the crowd. We have credit at one clothing store since we grabbed Billie Black- shear, who stays down at Stebbins James. Skirts, powder, puffs, Y. W. C. A., O Pooh! let us out. our corset is getting too tight. " They are doing a great work here. " — Tom Currie. ,ELTA KAPPA EPS1LON — My goodness, what will the national organization think hen they see us? We will have to hide the majority of our throng when the inspector comes around. Now. when we are put in athletic costumes we are not so bad, for there is Bone Sens, who is fairly presentable garbed for track, and Captain Boob Morris who is a veritable Venus in his new Metzenthin suit. Percy Rice. Phi Gam Ben ' s brother is among us. and, oh yes! little Johnnie Higdon — she never troubled anyone. " My! how the Capitol Club has degenerated! " — Herschel Voorhies. DELTA SIGMA PHI— We are budding out in the social world this year, as dear old Joe Hill is now Chief Mogul of the German Club, and is doing his best to make the Tri Delts popular. We have a new quizmaster in the person of Hoyo, the Flying Dutchman from Weimar. Old Secor is on Billy Disch ' s nine as the Cactus goes to press. (Hold your nose, fellers, the cellar is kinder punk this vear. ) " Those Delta Sigs sure give nice dances " — The Pi Plus D E J r II IE CACTI s ioio ■ ; THE CACTUS 1Q10 KAPPA ALPHA— Better known as Alva ' s Boys. They got a new home this year, and it is. of course, still unpaid for. Since Jew Heyer left there has been little internal strife, and but one debate has arisen, the subject of which was " Resolved: That Bill Hutchings has some brains. " The negative was unanimously victorious. Old Gink came back to spend a spell with us and it was his presence thatcaused the Kappas to add another to their roll. News from the front tells us that Freddie Cotten. of 1915 Cactus fame, will recruit the grand army- next year, and it is thought that with Fred ' s ability to govern the Barb element, accompanied bv Leweliing ' s social attainments and Conrad ' s popularity in the Greek world, old Kappa Al- falfa will have a glorious year. " I believe that the Barb administration has been unusually fair this year in everything that it has done. " — John Evans. (Ouch!!) KAPPA SIGMA— That Parisian addition, Billingsley. has certainly added to our list of social lions. (Wow!) Blacksmith Johnson is looking over many of the old beauty page applicants with the hope that he will be able to select a beauty page for next year. Bcauford and Jeanettc still stick around. Two of our boys room with ladies— McKnight has as his companion Miss Macatee, our Washington l Lee acquisition, while Sweet Bonnie Anderson still forces her childish wit on Jester. It is a grand old aggregation, but at any rate Shorty Scott has at last got the house filled, and that means nickels for the Mineral Wells Jew BoysBank. " There is nothing the matter with the Kappa Sigmas. " — Frances Lewis. " Oh. they give me the bellyache! " — Clark Wright. PHI DELTA THETA— A rare collection of exhibits including Ben Monning, Leslie Etter, Heavy Norment. -S. M. Leftwich, Lomax, Morgan Callaway and numerous others. Between me and you and Cuspidor it is a cinch for this bunch to grab any honor or office that they want for their queer crop of freshies. Mary Greer and Lemon Buddy are star members ' of this association and can always get up a good weep at the proper time. This is the gang that wanted to run that ultra-nut Alex Spence, for the Kink of the University. Dear old Henry Exall and dear little crop of fuzz are still with us. Pete is still trying to polish up and learn to dance. Roval managed to get bv with a large try after flashing his roll and tin automobiles. " I would just as soon belong to the Woodmen of the World as the Phi Delta Thetas. " — Maury Maverick. PHI KAPPA PSI— We have taken in some high grade stuff this year in the person of Orville Wallace Wood, the well-known Varsity debater, ex-president of the Poet s Club, etc. (for further information see Senior Page.) Freshman Puett is giving Cicero Smith a hard race for the hand of the circus queen, while old Clark Wright is getting grayer and sadder v = on bv Ernest had no opposition for the race for the Turkey Day Ball presidency iley had held the office. Between us and spare time. " Did you ever see such a col- as the days go by. — no one else would have the position after Dick the Delta Chis old Jerome has divided most of his lection of boobs? " — Roger Cillis. PH I GAMMA DELTA— There are three floors in our house . first class, second class, and steerage. Camp is captain of the latter. Gaze upon that grand triumvirate of stars Goudge. Carmichael and Camp. Can you beat them 1 Our policy is Plav a game and then join. " We should worry next year when the two Pats leave us. for we can do the rest of the congregation as we did Jack Tenison — send them to Kansas and let the Jayhawkers initiate them. And we don ' t have to count these grades, either. Pretty soft, eh? " It is certainly remarkable the way that bunch has gone down. " — Henry Harper. SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON— We get bv with a certain class (Pi Phis). We know we are not really first-class stuff, but we are good old bovs and are trying hard to get a whitt of the social world but it is mighty hard to smooth off some of the bums we take in, in order to make ends meet. The Peerless Pinky Mather runs our bunch and admits it. while dear old Ned rushes the little Wilcox girl and thereby helps out the frat in the Pi Phi direc- tion. " 1 love those dear S. A. Es. " — Any Pi Phi. (Pardon us while we hold our nose— Grind Ed.) " Why, the S. A. E ' s are nice boys. " — Little Polly Scale. SIGMA CHI— Better known as Fontaine ' s bovs. Maury says that he can vote his bunch any day, but that Charlie is the man to run instead of Raymond. Vandy still rushes Laura Johns, and old Woodul and Roger Gillis have entered the social world lnfZ.cta House and K. C. Hall are now the frequent abodes of these latest social lights. We added to and nainted our house and welcomed a host of bone-head Freshmen, so we think wc ought to get along fine next year " Those Sigma Chis try to get so fresh. —Ruth Boyd A bunch of nice, upright, stalwart young men. " — W. . . Battle. J n IE CACI! fS THE CACTUS IOIO SIGMA NU— That Jackson bov from Missouri, whom Steve Hawley says is a typical Sigma Nu. is with us this year and easily won the Better Babies Contest at the Bismark. Wart Williams, former editor of the Cactus, is one of our star scientists these days. The young Childress lad watches the Tri Delt ' s sleeping porch by the hours these nights withheld glasses, and offers many alibis for having failed to put one of these specimens on his Texas Girls ' Page. " Our Domino and Forty-two game is still going on. and Dub Galloway is still won- deringwhy wedon ' tpledge Woody Rowntree. " Those Nu boys are so rough. —Any old Baraca Tan. THETA XI — We had K L. Berrv. but outside influence caused us to lose our hold. Never mind, we have Mack Hodges. " who made a record on the track and doesn ' t have to go out any more. But if the boys next door should run that half-mile quicker than our Maxey. he says he will again journev to the cinder path and regain our lost laurels. W e haven ' t much ' to say. for our race for the cellar this year has not been as peppy as usual. We won by- default. " Mighty fine boys they are. " — T. U. Taylor. Mr. Robert Janmesom G©e§ to Harvard The Cactus is very sorry to announce (our sorrow is that we must use this much space to do it), that Texas will lose Mr. Robert Mix-in Jameson. What a calamity has beset us! No longer will his ever-authoritative voice chirp in with a: " Judge, may I ask a question 1 every five minutes during a lecture. How many errors will be made in the professors lectures after this because Mr. Jameson will not be there to set them right! Not even will Oppen- heimer, who has always run Jameson a close second, be here to take up the work where it has been set down. But then Harvard must be saved: she must be turned toward the right way. and as a turner and a setter there is none better than our own savior to do it.

Burton President Mrs. Fred Erhard Treasurer Miss Eda Ohmstede Secretary HISTORY A club was formed in 1898 by Miss Margaret Sealy (now Mrs. Frederick M. Burton), among the young society girls of Galveston, to assist the John Sealy Hospital in furnishing delicacies and necessities to the patients, and help the city budget where it felt unable to co- operate. The club has increased from twenty members to thirty-five and meets the first Sat- urday in each month. Dues, twenty-five cents (25c). A committee of four visits the Hospital each week distributing fruit, magazines and flowers during the winter and ice cream during the summer months. Funds are derived from the Yearly Pencil Sales and incredible as it may appear, these young ladies during the years of the organization, have given over twelve thousand dollars ($12,000) in articles. The Children ' s Hospital was completely furnished throughout by them and because of recent storms many articles were replaced twice. What has been done by these society girls with comparative ease can be duplicated in other cities. Mrs. Burton has been the president continuously and also has organized a Colored Branch of the Society called the Colored Hospital Aid Society, which has duplicated the weekly visits and has been of great assistance in the colored wards.

It was invented and is designed and built to meet the needs of the business world today. It is the finishing touch to that office efficiency which the aggres- sive business organization must have. It fits exactly into the high standard of organization, of per- sonnel and of equipment that the live business house must maintain. It rounds out the effectiveness, the sureness, the exactness, the specialized ability of the organization. It ends excessive repairs, because it is built for long life and for the finest work. It is bought with the confident knowledge that it will not have to be " traded-out " after one or two years of use. And this very quality of excellence is what makes the work done on the Royal stand alone as an exhibit of superiority. The precise harmony of all moving parts, the swift and sure mechan- ical response, the perfect presswork — all these enable the typist to do more work, to do it better — and to do it with much less effort. Compare the work. Get the facts. Put it to the deciding test of actual results in your office, under your own working condi- tions. The user of but one Royal enjoys the same advantage as the organization which requires a hundred or more Telephone or write us now and a representative will call. A demonstration does not place you under the slightest obligation. Let the Royal prove itself to you and for you.

Why not use the same good judgment in selecting a business school in which to secure your training ' The Tyler Commercial College of Tyler, Texas, is the business u niversity of the South; it enrolls more students annually for Bookkeeping, Shorthand, Stenotypewriting, Cotton Classing, Business Administra- tion and Finance, and Telegraphy than any other similar school in America. Its students have come from 39 dif- ferent states; its graduates are holding the very best of positions in the leading cities of the United States. If you will spend from $100 to $150 for tuition, board and books for a course of Shorthand and Stenotypewriting or Bookkeeping or Telegraphy, or Cotton Classing or Business Administration and Finance, or, better still, spend $175 to $200 and complete any two of these courses, you will have made the best investment of your life. What young man or woman with grit and determination cannot raise this amount 1 Hundreds of students who borrowed every cent of their money to attend our school or gave us their note on tuition have found it the best venture of their lives; they were soon able to pay back the borrowed money, continue holding their good job, or go into business for themselves, with assurance of success. If you always remain where you are, you will always be what you are. Gunter Hotel EUROPEAN The Texas Home Feeling Prevails PERCY TYRRELL, Mgr.

Because of the fact that it is practically impossible to maintain a strict competitive system in a year-book of the character of the Cactus, the greater part of the work has fallen necessarily upon a few people. Never- theless, the Editor wishes to thank the entire Cactus Staff for the material aid that they have given him and the numerous favors that they have ren- dered. For the quality and character of the art work in this year ' s book, the Editor wishes especially to adknowledge his indebtedness to Gillis John- son, Julien Elfenbein and Dave Williams. Their services have been in- valuable. To the Union Bank Note Company of Kansas City is due the credit for the preparation of the main artistic features of the volume, as well as for the skill and efficiency with which the book has been printed. Thanks are due the Electric City Engraving Company of Buffalo for the care with which they have executed the bulk of the engraving work, and to the Burger Engraving Company of Kansas City for the excellence of their color plates. The Elliotts have won the Editor ' s lasting gratitude for their efficiency in the handling of the larger part of the photograph work in the book, as well as for their valuable assistance in the preparation of the mounted picture blocks. Their unfailing interest in the success of the annual has lightened our work many-fold. It has been the desire of those responsible for this volume to characterize as fairly and justly as possible life at Texas during the past year as it really is. to portray, in a measure, the type of men and women who are helping to create the manifold destiny of our state. We believe that there is afforded an oppor- tunity to instill into a year book of this character quite a considerable amount of originality and individuality. But we further believe that in a school that carries with it such marked traditions as does the University of Texas, there are certain features of each successive year book which necessarily and of right should be standardized. We have edited this book with these two thoughts in mind, and we have sought to change only where we believed the change to be for the better. As for the book itself, you are to render the final verdict — not we. In attempting to materialize our ideals we do not doubt but that we have often blundered — wandered from the road. Someone else may have done better, but we believe that you will at least be charitable enough to give us credit for working — to know that throughout the entire way we have done our best. — E. P. H.
