None but Indians had seen or explored tkis vast region, and tKe buffaloes and Indians ruled tbe land which was to become Texas free from any interference of the white men. In 1528, a part of an expedition under Narvaez sent to subdue and govern Florida lost its way, and was shipwrecked on the coast of Texas. Cabeza de Vaca, the leader of this detachment, and several of his companions were taken captive by the Indians. For seven years de Vaca and his associates lived among the different Indian tribes as captives, and during this time they had many opportunities to visit parts of the vast region and to learn a great deal about this unexplored country. At the end of that time, four of the men managed to escape to the Christian settlements in Mexico, where they unfolded tales of privation, suffering, and hardships like none that had ever been heard before. The tales of the country, brought by these adventurers, together with a detailed account of the expeditions written by de Vaca shortly after his arrival in Mexico, caused interest to be aroused in the great country to the northwest. Niza, a Span- ish priest, Coronado, and De Soto lead expeditions to Texas from time to time but no settlements of a lasting character were made. The Indians re- mained in undisputed control of Texas until near the close of the seventeenth century. To the Students of the UniA ' ersity: Another year has gone. For some of you it has been your first year in the University. For many of you it has been another year of growth and progress. For those of you who are graduating it has been perhaps your last year at school. Whatever may be your class or school, each individual among you has contributed something toward the record of the year 1926-1927. Some have contributed little; others have contributed more. Just what has been done and just who have been the doers, you, yourselves, have undertaken to set down in your own way and in your own book. So much is contained in your book that for each of you it will have a different meaning. What one will pass over, another will dwell upon in happy memory. What one will ignore, another will cherish. Looking to the time when you will use your Yearbook to assist you in reminiscences of your University days, I can but wish for all of you a future of increasing usefulness and happiness. Sincerely yours, Walter M. W. Splaw , President. Page 17 M, 1 1 iti lioard of Ti gents OFFICERS Henry J. Lutcher Stark Chairman R. L. Batts Vice-Chairman Carroll D.

The degrees of Master of Science and Master of Arts were the only higher degrees offered. In June, 1910, the board of Regents created the Graduate School to be administered by the general faculty acting through a committee known as the Graduate Council, of which the Dean of the Graduate School was ex-ofticio Chairman. The degree of Doctor of Philosophj ' was added to the list of higher degrees conferred by the Universit - after the organization of the Graduate School. Two years ago the legislature, responding to a request of the Board of Regents, appropriated a special sum of money for the organization of a separate graduate facult)-. This faculty met in its first formal session on November 12, 1925, after its complete organization in the summer of 1925. Now super- vision of all graduate work of the University is under the jurisdiction of this faculty. A new era in the development of the graduate work of the University has thus been inaugu- rated with ever},- promise of rapid and solid expansion. For the purpose of encouraging higher scholarships and research, the sum of .f5,000 for each year of the biennium of 1925-1927 w as appropriated by the Board of Regents to be used for fellowships and scholarships under the jurisdiction of the Graduate Faculty. In addi- tion to these fellowships and scholarships, the following fellowships have been founded by private citizens of the state; The Walden-Beard Fellowship, with a stipend of $2,000 annually given by Mr. J. J. W ' alden, General Manager of the Southwestern Engraving Company, and Mr. Roy J. Beard, President of the Star Engraving Company, both of Fort Worth; the Malcolm Hiram Reed, Jr., Fellowship, with an annual stipend of 11,000, established in the memory of their son by Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Hiram Reed of Austin; the Louis Lipsitz Fellowship, with a stipend of .$1,000 for each of the scholastic years 1927-1928 and 1928-1929, given by Mr. Louis Lipsitz, President of the Harrls-Lipsitz Company of Dallas; and the Texas Portland Cement Company Fellowship with a stipend of $600 for the school year, 1926-1927. i De. n Harper Page 19 Top row — Cunningham, Gray Middle row — Painter, Campbell Bottom row — Battle, Harper, B. rker College of rts a fid Science JM I ' I ' I THE student body began in 1883, di ' ided into " Academs " and " Laws, " 58 Academic girls. 111 Academic boys, and 52 Law boys. There were six Academic Professors, and two in Law. What is now called the College of Arts and Sciences was called " Academic Department, " 1883-1891, and " Department of Literature, Science and Arts, " 1891- 1906. " College of Arts " was the next name until " Sciences " crept into the title in 1920-21. From six (what are now called) departments in 1883, teaching eight subjects, there has grown 18 departments in 1927, teaching about forty major subjects of human knowl- edge. Philosoph) ' , Psychology, Economics, Government, Sociology ' , Business Administration, and Anthropology for example ha ' e all grown out of one original department. From six professors, the faculty has grown to 111, 81 instructors and 114 tutors and assistants; and the student body from 160 to nearly 3,400. These last figures do not include En- gineering, Education, and everything else except Law that grew out of the original Academic Department. In the United States, onh- nine other Colleges of Arts and Sciences are larger. De. x H. V. Benedict Since 1883, excluding Law, the enrollment in English and Public Speaking has remained close to 16% of the total hourage. The foreign languages ha -e fallen from 32% to 12%, Mathematics from 20%. to 8%. The enrollment in the social sciences has grown from 15% to 17%; in the social sciences from 16% to 21%. Education, Engineering, Business Administration, and Journalism ha e gained about what Mathematics and foreign languages have lost. Since 1883, the following degrees ha e been conferred: B. A. 4,348; B. J., 41; B. Lit., 245; B. S. in H. E., 165; B. S. in Medicine, 75.

For forty-three years it has been engaged in preparing the youth of the state for the practise of htw , not with the purpose of equipping the indi idual graduate sr) that he nia - make a financial success of his profession, hut with the ie v that a more proficient bar and judiciar ,- must ine -itabh- result in the more accurate dispensation of justice to the citizens of this state. To such a service the efTorts of the Law School are dedicated. That it has been failed in this high-calling is best attested by the records of its gradu- ates, many of whom today are leaders of the bar and members of the judiciary. And ne er has the standard of work been higher than at the present time under the able direction of its Dean, Ira P. Hildebrand. The passing years ha e brought man - changes in the way of raised entrance requirements, ini- pro •ed methods of instruction, an enlarged curriculum, better library facilities and a general raising of the standard and amount of work required for a degree, and today this Law- School undoubtedly ranks high among the law schools of the nation. It was with great regret that the Law School witnessed the departing during the past year of two members of its faculty: A. Leon Green and Charles T. McCormick, both of whom have become members of the faculty of the Law School of the ITniversity of North Carolina, the former having been made Dean of that school. However, the vacancies thus created have been ably filled by Professor Bryant Smith, who comes from the faculty of the Washington University Law School at St. Louis, and Professor Leo Bi ewer, who was a prominent member of the San Antonio Bar. In other respects the faculty remains the same as last year. De.

The first session, 1883-1884, was conducted in the old Temporary Capitol which was located on the now vacant lot east of the Governor ' s Mansion and west of the Court House. During the summer of 1884, Dr. A. V. Lane, now a banker of Dallas, Texas, was added to the Department of Pure and Applied Mathematics. He began several courses in Engineering and conducted them to the close of the session 1887-88. T. U. Taylor was elected Adjunct Professor of Applied Mathematics in June, 1888, and the Engineering work was continued in the School of Mathematics until 1895 when the Regents created the Department of Engineering; it functioned largeh ' as a school with no separate faculty. In 1906, under the presidency of David Franklin Houston, the Department of Engineering was organized and T. } . Ta lor was made Dean of the Department. From 1884 to 1903 only Civil Engineering was given, but in 1903 Electrical Engineering was added, which included courses in Steam Engineering. In 1906 the faculty of the Deparment of Engineering began to function as an organized bod}-. In 1910 Architecture was added to the Department of Engineering, and later Chemical Engineering was organized into a separate degree. In 1922 the title, " Department of Engineer- ing, " was changed to " College of Engineering. " The first graduate of Engineering was H. P. Hunnicutt in 1888. The following number of Engineering degrees have been conferred at the University at Austin : Agriculture — undergraduates, 74; graduate, 1. Chemical Engineering — undergraduates, 44; graduates, 8. Civil Engineering — undergraduates, 318; graduates, 16. Electrical Engineering — undergraduates, 271; graduates, 14. Mechanical Engineering — undergraduates, 69; graduates, 2.

It was started at the University of Texas in 1891 as a department in the College of Arts. In 1905 it was set apart as a separate school. The present School of Education was created in 1920. The first professor of E!ducation was Dr. Joseph Baldwin, who was succeeded in 1898 by Dr. Wil- liam S. Sutton and Dr. A. Caswell Ellis. The present faculty of the School numbers 19 professors and instructors, and the students registration is approximately 1700. Comparative statistics show that the School of Education at the University is the largest of its sort in the South. Advanced and graduate students are coming here from all nearby States. There is every prospect that it will develop into the leading training school for teachers in this section of the country. The School occupies one of the most modern and attractive buildings on the campus; in which its offices are housed, to- gether with all its classrooms and laboratories. Practice teaching is now done in connection with the Austin Public Schools. Efforts are being made to develop an experimental school on the campus under the direct control of the Education facultv.

The Dean of Student Life is responsi- ble for the disciplinary acti ities of the Unix-ersity and is the co-ordinating head in the dexelopment of general policies of student control. Dean Terrill and Dean Moore ha e occupied their posi- tions since the fall of 1925; Dean Pittenger since the fall of 1926. In the administration of her duties Dean Terrill is ably assisted by Miss Lula M. Bewley. The chief assistant to the Dean of Men is Mr. Arno Xowotny. At present the L niversity Health Ser ice, headed by Dr. Leroy A. Wilkes, is organized as a division of the Student Life Staff. Dr. Wilkes began his work at the University in the fall of 1926.

Student Self-Government, the Machinery ' VT H of the Students ' Association, through its ramifications, affects 1 ' " phases of student life. Aside from minor administrative ■ units. Student Government consists of three regular branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. The President, Vice- I , 3H President and Secretarj ' -Treasurer of the Students ' Associa- V ' " m tion compose the executive branch; the Students ' Assembly is the legislative branch; and the Men ' s and Women ' s Councils compose the judiciary. Student Government rests upon and de elops student responsibility. One evidence of student I, v ' ' , H interest is the fact that over 3,300 voted in the last spring term elections.

Upon registering in the University, every woman auto- matically becomes a member of the Woman ' s Association. This association elects two graduate students, two seniors, two juniors, two sophomores and one freshman to be their governing body. This body, which is called the Woman ' s Assembly, elects its officers, President, Vice-President and Secretary-Treasurer from its members. The powers of the Woman ' s Assembly are purely ad isory at present. They discuss women ' s campus problems, and ad " ise legislation to the Student ' s Association. This year was spent in getting organized, drawing up a constitution, and having it approved by the Student ' s Association. Much time has been spent on planning a fair point system, the purpose of which is to limit the amount of time each woman student spends in campus activities. After this matter has been studied carefully, and a satisfactory system is worked out, it will be submitted to the Student ' s Association for passage- Jessie Church President MEMBERS Graduates- -ViRGiNiA Taber Kathryn Bryant Jiuiiors- -F RANGES McCoNNELL, Vice-President Mildred Robertson Seniors — Jessie Church, President Lucille Gowan Sophomores — Gyneth Stugarde Mary Ford Freshman — -Margaret Cunningham, Secretary-Treasurer Top row — Bryant, Taber Bottom row — Stugarde, Church, McConnell Pagt27 The J) [ens Qouncil THE Men ' s Council, composed of a representatue from each school and a chairman at large, is the judicial branch of student government. Its duty is to tr - all cases arising under the Constitution and Laws of the Students ' Association and breaches of the Honor System. At the beginning of this ear an intense effort was made • ' i ' to acquaint all new students with the Honor System, and to secure co-operation from the older students. Throughout the year efforts have been made through publicity and other methods to strengthen the System and make it more effecti ■e. A sincere effort has been made to administer justice fairh- and without prejudice. Personal friendships or favoritism ha e not entered into the decisions. All have been con- sidered equal in the eyes of the Council when accused of a violation. The Council has adhered to a policy of suspending all who were found guilty, feeling that an unswerving and firm M. Kio. Olson- policy was necessary for the success of the Honor System.

Women ' s Honor Council is composecl of a chairman ami ti e members elected at large by a vote of the women students of the I ' niNersity. It is the dut ' of the Council to thoroughly investigate in a fair manner all iolations ot the honor system in which women students are concerned. It is further within the jurisdiction of the Council to assess penalties to those students found guilt -. These penalties range from probation to suspension. The administration of these penalties rests with the Dean of Student Life. Xo effort is made to introduce legal methods into the procedure, the trials are not secret and permanent records of them are filed in the council room and in the office of the Dean. Brief accounts of the honor violation cases are published in the Daily Texan, omitting the name of the offender. Each member of the Council has contributed to the con- structive work of the system by conscientiously seeking to build up a spirit of honor among those students with whom she came in contact. M.

Purchasing of all non-technical supplies. To have charge of all buildings and grounds. To care for all University property. To manage all rental property. To supervise the construction of new buildings. To direct the work of the Supervising Architect. To manage the press, stenographic bureau, cafeteria, workshop, etc. A sample of the telephone calls coming into the office in one day is about as follows: Can I get a load of dirt? Have you any lumber to sell? Our water pipe is busted. The roof in S Hall leaks. Have you got our cat in the Lost and Found Bureau? It ' s too hot in my office. It ' s too cold in Garrison Hall.

Mathews, a graduate of the University, who has held this office for the past sixteen years and has done much toward making the Texas institution one of the best in the countr -. He is ably assisted by a competent staff of eight members. The duties of this department are many and include the register- ing of students, the making of transcripts, record booklets and report cards, the compiling of statistics, the editing of the catalogue and all official publications, the issuing of class and examination schedules, the conducting of special examinationsi and the handling of the bulk of the University correspondence. The Auditor ' s office, under the direction of W. R. Long, serN ' es as the receiving and disbursing agent of all finances, and has charge of the accounting department. It not only handles the general University funds, but also the funds of the Students ' Assembly, the Women ' s Building, the Uni- versity Commons, the Stadium Association, and numerous loan funds. In this work, Mr. Long is ably assisted by E. R. Cornwell, as Assistant Auditor, and W. M. Studer, as Bookkeeper. The super ision of the Library is in the hands of E. W. Winkler. Mr. Winkler involve the checking of all library deposits, replacing of old books in the library, and the of new books. E. J. M.

" This is being done through various means. Former students in about 150 towns maintain local units of the Association. A student loan fund of more than $65,000 is used by students of the University who could not otherwise gain University training. Since the formation of the Association in 1919, about 750 such loans have been made. The Alcalde, one of the outstanding alumni publications of the country, is published by the Association to keep the former students interested in the Universit -. A permanent office personnel and permanent records of all former students are kept at the Association offices at 2300 San Antonio Street, Austin, and any possible aid is given to students and former students. A fund of approximately $65,000 has been gathered by the Association for the erection on the campus of a Gymnasium and student union, and Association officers have spent much time during the year 1926-27 in an effort to determine just what form this project should take. The Association has been very fortunate in having as its president for the year Hon. T. W. Gregory, United States Attorney-General during the war, who has spent a large portion of his time in developing the Association, with the result that the membership has been greath in- creased. He has been assisted in this work by the other officers. Miss Eunice Aden, Mrs. Mary Lu Prather Darden and R. L. Bobbitt, vice-president; C. M. Bartholomew, treasurer; John A. McCurdy, executive secretary; William B. Ruggles, editor-in-chief, and Harry E. Moore, managing editor of the Alcalde.

He had started out from France with four vessels, given him by the King; but one had been captured by the Spanish buccaneers m the West Indies, another had been shipwrecked, and the captain of the third had abandoned him, leaving only one vessel for the service of the company. After he learned that the bay was not the outlet to the Mississippi, La Salle moved the post to a point about six miles up the Lavaca river, and established Fort St. Louis. Two years of hardship followed. Finally, m 1687 he took seventeen companions, and set out to find the Mississippi. The party was soon split into two factions, whose relations became more strained as the journey progressed. The party became separated by the swollen Trinity river early in March, and one group decided to re- venge itself upon the other. The men of the group opposing La Salle murdered three of his friends, and resolved to kill him as soon as the river re- ceded enough to permit them to cross. La Salle became uneasy after a few days, and crossed the river himself to ascertain what was detaining them. The conspirators heard him coming, and shot him from ambush when he came near the camp. Thus was ended the life of a great explorer and the suc- cess of the colony on the Lavaca river. La Salle s death marked the close of the last French attempt at actual settlement m Texas. 2 " G RADUATE Joel Carl Bachman Austin History Graduate History Club; Education Association; Phi Delta Kappa.

The capture of one of La Salle ' s vessels brought them the news of the French colony in Texas, and this aroused them to a greater activity in regard to the coloniza- tion of the state just north of Mexico. They lost no time in sending out an expedition to locate and destroy the French settlement, but as Fort St. Louis had been moved six miles up the Lavaca river they were unable to find it, and La Salle s colony w as undisturbed. Still alarmed over the news of the French in Texas, the Spaniards decided to establish a post of their own, and to attempt to Christianize the Indians. In 1690 one hundred soldiers under the command of De Leon were sent to destroy Fort Saint Louis, capture any Frenchmen they could find, and establish a mission. These orders were duly carried out, and a missionary post was estab- lished among the Tejas Indians m eastern Texas. The site selected was near the present town of Nacogdoches, and the Mission San Francisco de los Tejas began its work. The zealous energy of the priests was defeated by drought and overflow, pestilence and famine, and the mission was aban- doned in 1693. It was revived, however, m 1716 under the name of San Francisco de los Neches, and flourished for several years. The establish- ment of this mission in 1690 marks the first at- tempt as permanent settlement in Texas on the part of the Spanish. The University of Tomorrozv UN ' IV ' KRSITIES of the North and luist in ariably cast the stamp of their memory forever upon the minds of the students who spend their days of college life there. Ivy-covered walls and columns, which recall pleasant memories of college life to the alumni of 1SS5, form much the same isual images which will recall the liTe, twenty years hence, to the alunmi of 1927. Those campuses ha e acquired their growth in full, and have settled into a serenity of quiet and peacefulness. The campus of the University of Texas is far different. The hammer, the saw, and the steel riveter resound j ' et, and will continue to resound for years to come, over this campus that has not acquired its full growth. The day of the shack on the campus of this University is at last passing; a year or two ago most classes met in these temporary buildings, and it began to appear that they were temporary only from a point of view of style; but upon the building of Garrison Hall most of the shacks on " Shac k Row " were abandoned by classes and given over to the Curtain Club, the Band, and the Men ' s Gym. The removal of these makeshift buildings is involved in the plans for the future campus of the University, for without such, progress is not possible. During 1927, two of the buildings on the west side have been removed, with a considerable improvement to the appearance of the Campus. Old J Hall, which houses the University Press, The Daily Texan and, Ranger offices, has not yet been molested, although its removal is now a problem before the Building Committee. One of the first parts of the building program to be carried out is the removal of the Power House from the campus. A new plant is to be erected east of the present Clark Field, and power and heating connections will be established with all buildings. This will be a decided improvement on the east side of the campus, because at pres- ent it has the appearance of being the " Back Door " of the school. The Littlefield Dormitory, for girls, is to be completed by next September and will be open for the first semester of school. This building, located just north of the Biology Building, will be one the of best equipped dormitories in the country, and will indeed be a step forward toward the Future University. A beautiful addition to be made to the campus is the gift of Major George Little- field; the Littlefield Memorial Entrance, given to commemorate the contribution of the I ' nited States to the Allies in the World War. This memorial is to be erected at an approximate cost of $250,000, and will be built with an architectural background of Texas granite, surmounted by heroic figures of bronze. At the central point will be a figure of America, flanked on each side by figures representing the Army and Navy. These stand on a boat of bronze floating in a pool. Drawing the boat across the water are to be sea horses driven by America, transporting her army and navy to the assistance of the Allies. The pool is to be in two sections, upper and lower; water will be fed to the upper by pumps, whence it will flow to the lower over a series of cascades. The pool will be flanked by broad paved walks, with on each side bronze figures eight feet high — Hogg, Reagan, Lee, and Johnston. To the rear of the central group, some 60 feet apart, are to be two bronze figures nine feet high — JefTerson Davis and Woodrow Wilson. In response to the long demand for a student center, composed mainly of an Audito- rium and Gymnasium, plans are being made for such a building. Here the entire student bod - will be allowed to gather in one body, and a much needed place for basket ball Page 103 The Universit j of Tomorrozv — Qontinued games will be provided for. Alumni throughout the State are actively supporting this plan for impro ement, and their efforts ma - soon result in a Ijenefical result on the campus. The old Chemistry Building, which was destro ed by fire, is to be replaced by a new building of the predominating style of architecture. This building will contain equipment surpassed by few l ' ni ersities in the country. Although there is now on the campus a most beautiful and modern library, the need for a larger one has caused the " New Library " to become a part of University Building plan. Mrs. Lutcher Stark ' s contribution of a rare collection of works of art and literature is awaiting a building to house it. It has not been defnitely decided whether this shall be placed in the present library, of which the new building would take its place entirely or whether it shall be placed in a wing of the new building. Old B Hall, which was formerK " a dormitory for boys, has been completely re- modeled and improved, and is to be used as a building for Architecture Classes and the offices of the Texas Student Publications. This landmark for alumni will stand for mariy years, and, although those Texans whose home it was in years past will not see it again as a dormitory, it will continue to hold cherished memories for many. The financing of the improvements on the campus, exclusive of gifts from alumni and others, must come from the interest on the investments which the University now holds. These, which are in the form of United States bonds, yield interest at the rate of about 4%, which amounts to approximately $200,000 yearly. The University of Tomorrow is a thing certain. It is not absolutely definite in all respects as to plan, but it is no fond dream of an over-imaginative mind ; it must de -elop. even as the State has developed, from a small beginning to a campus worthy of the progress of the Lone Star State. Students of today do not expect to return many years hence to find the same old buildings and surroundings; they must and will look to the spiritual reminders of their school rather than the material. With Texas, the present must be something better than even the recent past. T)ie Unii ' ersitv, from the Stadium Page 104 The ' DcvclopcmcNt of the University STEPHEN F. AUSTIN, writing to suit himscir in thi Cit ' of Mexico in March, LS23, i con- stitution for the Republic of Mexico, put down " it shall be the duty of Congress to provide by every means in its power .... schools, academies and colleges. " Neglect of Austin ' s advice was followed in the Texas Declaration of Independence, March 2, 1836, by the indictment : (The government of Mexico) " has failed to establish any public system of education although it is an axiom of political science that, unless a people are educated and enlightened, it is idle to expect the continuance of ci ■ l liberty or the capacity for self government. " Two weeks later, March 17, the first Constitution of Texas made the care of education a fundamental duty of the Re]iublic. On Nlonday, November 20, 1837, General Kelsey P. Douglass " introduced a bill to in- corporate the University of Texas " in the Second Congress. On December 11, on motion of General Thomas J. Rusk " the vote indefinitely postponing the bill to incorporate the University of Texas was reconsidered. " On April 13, 1838, the " act to establish the University of Texas was referred to a select committee. " No ember 20, 1837 marks the first recorded mention of the University, ' of Texas. These extracts from the Congressional Journals show the University Catalogue to be right when it proudly says " The idea of a University for Texas is as old as Texas. " As a matter of fact the University was the first part of the school system to get attention in Congress, and this attention is received practically in the midst of war. During 1837 and 1838 the location of the Capitol of the Republic was being considered, and a place for the University was provided at the seat of government. The block where the Pease School now is was the first Campus and Twelfth Street was called College Avenue on e;arly Austin maps. Late in 1839 somehow, this block was abandoned and the present Campus, named " College Hill " at least a year earlier, was selected. In Januarj ' , 1839 the Congress set aside two hundred thousand acres as endowment for the Universities, but the Act of 1858 " to establish the University " ga ' e all this land to one " the " University. It was sold eventually for about .1700,000, and invested in bonds. Interest on these bonds was the main source of income for the first ten years of the life of the University. Feeble efTorts actually to establish the University were made in 1840 and 1849. In 1853 Governor Pease began to recommend prompt establishment and from 1855 to 1858 the efforts The Main Building Page 105 to establish attracted state-wide interest. The arguments for and against a state university made during those years have been quite fully preserved and make a fair sized book. There resulted the Act of 1858 to establish, which however failed to establish because the Civil War came on shortly thereafter. This Act of 1858 gave to the University one acre of land for each ten granted to railways. This might have made three millions acres, had not the Constitution of 1876 under which we now live taken away this land and gi en the University a million acres in West Texas as compensation. In 1883 the Legislature gave another million, the two million upon which oil and potash and sul- phur and great hopes are founded. At the time it was given to the University this West Texas land was not thought to be very valuable. During the Ci il War, all of the University money except 57 cents was taken for war purposes, some $280,000. Half of this was never paid back because used in support of the Confederacy, the other half was repaid in 1883 with interest. In addition to losing all its money during the Civil War, the University nearly lost its life, efforts to abolish it gaining some headway. The return of peace brought renewed efforts to establish. The Constitution of 1866 directed " starting at an early day " and the State Teachers Convention of the year almost endorsed such action. A board of eight " administrators " was appointed in 1866 and spent $496, the first money ever spent on higher education by the State of Texas, in fruitless efforts to locate the Universit} ' . An act amending in interesting ways the Act of 1858 was passed in 1866 and a committee was appointed by the Legislature to visit the Uni- versity. Since there was no University to visit some joker is here in evidence. The 1866 Legis- lature also provided for a second university. In 1875 a second and third set of University administrators were appointed, but they did nothing worthy of record. The establishment of the LTniversity was retarded by the fight between the " one " uni crsity and " two " university men and by the conflicting efforts to locate it, west vs. east until 1870 and north vs. south thereafter. As a result the Constitution of 1876 made the A. and M. (which opened in 1876) a branch of the University and provided that the location of the Main University be fixed by a vote of the people. In 1871 Attorney General Alexander had proposed to combine the A. M. and University into a great institution like Illinois and Minne- sota but no attention was paid to his proposal. The Constitution of 1876 further provided that the Legislature support a LTniversity of the " first-class, " that the West Texas lands be sold, that the endowment be invested in State or U. S. bonds, that no revenue be spent for buildings, that a negro branch L ' niversity be established. Governor Oran M. Roberts is the actual founder of the LTniversity. Elected Governor in 1879 he decided that an effective system of education was the greatest need of Texas. Failing in 1879 he succeeded two years later in passing through the Legislature the Act of Establishment of 1881. In accordance with this act the LTniversity was opened in 1883. This act provided Education Building Page 106 thai the University should ha e no president, get no money from the general revenue, and be gOAcrned in detail by eight Regents with terms of eight years. In these particulars the original act has been amended, but otherwise the act is still in force. Assiuning that the Universit} ' could live on its endowment and cost nobody anything the Act of 1881 jiassed easih ' . On March 30 the act was signed by the governor and on April Fool Da - the first Board of Regents wa.s appointed. The election to locate the University was held in September, Tyler getting the most votes for the Main University, Galveston for the Medical Branch, and Austin for the Main and Medical combined. Austin got more votes than Tyler for the whole Uni •ersity and for the Main Uni ersity when the two votes were added. Waco got many votes for Main and Medical and Houston for the Medical. On November 14, 1881, the Regents met for the first time, elected Ashbel Smith as " President " of the Regents, and found the - had onh ' .?37,000 to spend when they had been figuring on $100,000 at least. In spite of this financial blow they went ahead, letting the contract for the West Wing of the Main Building and electing a faculty of eight professors at subsequent meetings. Judge Cooley of Michigan and Dr. William T. Harris of Washington were the first professors elected, but each declined. Professorial salaries were fixed at $4,000, equal to $10,000 now. Such large salaries produced a lot of comment, favorable and unfavorable. The first academic faculty meeting was held in Maxwell House a Nashville hotel famous for its cofifee, Ashbel Smith telling the five professors present that the University had " plenty of money. " The " ' cst Wing " not being finished in September, 1883, the University opened in the " Temporary Capitol " then just east of the Mansion. During the first session 221 students registered, a number that grew to 328 for the tenth and 823 for the twentieth session of the Main University. During the first ten years the expenditure for salaries averaged close to $50,000 annually, for other running expenses about $20,000. This was met by interest on the bonds above referred to, about $30,000 annually, by interest on land notes, student fees and lease of grazing lands, about $6,000, $4,000 and $5,000 respectively. The University therefore, was more and more pressed for monej ' , the Regents could not even hope for relief from the general revenue and were forced merel} ' to ask the Legislature to repay the unpaid money taken during the Civil War. In 1888 after a long fight the Legislature loaned the L niversity $125,000, provided that $75,000 be spent for the central part of the Main Building and $50,000 for a Medical Building at Galveston. This loan was to be repaid without interest in 1910, by which time everybody had forgotten it. In 1889, the Regents tried to get another loan of $200,000 but, probably due to the care of Regent E. J. Simkins, also a State Senator, this was changed into an actual appropriation for $25,000. Through a back door, the University got at the general revenue for its first new money. In 1895 the law prohibiting appropriations for the Uni •er.sity was repealed, but it was not till 1909-10 that the legislative appropriation exceeded $200,000 per year. It was not till 1918 that the total legislative appropriation added up to $6,000,000, three-fourths for the Main Uni- Library Page 107 JSii versity, one-fourth for the Medical Branch. It will not be long before the University will ask and get $6,000,000 from one legislature, but in this connection it must be remembered that a dollar is not what it used to be. The Academic and Law " Departments " began with the University in 1883. Engineermg escaped from, the Academic as a separate College in 1894, Education in 1906, Business Administra- tion in 1922. In 1909 Extension work was begun and in 1910 the Graduate School arose to separate recognition. As a department in the present use of the word Education was established in 1891, abolished by the Regents in 1896, only to start again in 1897. The Medical School opened in 1891 and the School of Mines was connected with the University in 1919, but almost disappeared in 1925, because of a gubernatorial veto. Two or three other etoes ha -e been important in University histon,-, the veto of the whole biennial appropriation in 1917 and the veto of one year in 1913. Major " attacks " were also m-ade on the University in 188.5, 1893, and in 1894, and minor attacks and_ criticisms go on all the time, imperfections both in the University and in human nature furnishing the basis. Owing partly to the Constitutional prohibition against building by means of money from the general revenue, the Uni ersitv has been unusually slow in acquiring a satisfactory equip- ment in buildings. The Main Building, West, was begun in 1882, Central in 1890, East in 1897. The Chemical Laboratorv, now burned, was built in 1891, when B Hall also was erected. The Women ' s Building was built in 1902. The Engineering Building dates from 1904 and the Law Building from 1908. The Power Building arose in 1910, the Library in 1911, Education Build- ing in 1915, the Biologv Building in 1925, Garrison Hall in 1926. The Shacks, cheap, temporary ' , frame buildings, to the number of twenty-three, have been erected since 1911. Although other State Universities ha -e been forced to use shacks, the University of Texas is more noted for its shacks than the others. In 1921 as a result of a proposal to move the LTniversity out to the dam where a number of years before George W. Brackenridge had given four hundred acres lying between the dam and the railroad on the north side of the river, the Legislature appropriated .11,400,000 to purchase one hundred and thirtv adjacent to the original fort - acre campus. The purchase of the land is not yet completed but the Legislature has added the old Blind Institute plant by special act_. Gifts have come into the Universitv in growing numbers and amounts. The gift of . ' $17,000 for B Hall from George W. Brackenridge and the gifts of the Sealy family to the Medical hospital marked the beginning of large donations. In 1897 Sir Swante Palm bequeathed his library of 10,000 •olumes. A long period followed marked onh- b - further gifts from the Seahs and from Brackenridge. Then came an endowment of o er §100,000 for the purchase of books on Southern history- from George W. Littlefield, who added a quarter of a million for the purchase of the Wrenn Libran, ' , $300,000 ' ' for the Alice Littlefield Dormitory for Freshman Girls, .$250,000 for a Memorial Gate, his home, and several lots, and .1;500,000 to accumulate for the erection of a new Main Biology Building Page I OS Buildin.u- Ktrrnlly Mrs. Marian ' l.ulcluT SlarU (it Orange has given a large rollertinn of objects of art with SI " lO.OOO to |iro icle a home for the collection.

This last be(|uest provides most magnificently for the clinical side of the Medical School. The earh ' Republic founders of the University were of the school of Thomas JefTerson and it was natural for the l ' ni ersity to be, during its Prst ears almost another University of Virginia. Oscar (Eloper, who wrote n ost of the act establishing the Uni ersity. and Ashbel Smith, practically the first [)resident of the Uni ersity, were ' ale Phi Beta Kappas.. f ' .o crnor Oran M. Roberts, more than an " one else the man who started the L ' ni ersit -, was a graduate of the University of Alabama. ' irginia influence, strong at f rst has slowl - waned. Three of our presidents, Houston, Mezes, antl Battle, ha c been Har ' ard iren. Today, the Faculty is representative and from man - different institutions. Harvard, Chicago, Columbia, Yale, etc. There are perhaps too few graduates of Pairopean uni ersities. Naturally there are many graduates of the llniversity also, but most of them ha e also gone elsewhere for further study. Compared with her sister state unisersities, the Uni ersity of Texas is not markedly peculiar. In athletics and student activities generally, in courses otTered and registrations therefor, in almost e erv respect, we are close to the general a -erage. As Professor Royster used to say " The only thing peculiar about Texans is that they think themselves peculiar. " Even this is not true because most other people also assume themselves to be peculiar. As things look now, however, the University of Texas bids fair to be the greatest in all the South, bids fair to be one of the great universities of the world.

That act provided for a board composed of the four editors, three faculty members, a representative from the Students Assembly, and the President of the Students Assembly. It further provided for a manager of publications to be selected in the spring of each year to serve the following year. W. L. McGill has served as manager for the past four years. Since that time the control of students publications has been in the hands of the so created body. This board acts upon questions of policy and matters affecting the budgets. A recent survey of the operation of college publications showed that the University ' s system equaled or excelled any plan in operation in the United States.

Elkins Editor The 1927 Qactus ' ' ' Y HE 1927 Cactus is the result of many hours of labor and worry on the part of the staff for seven long months. The plan of the book has been to embody into the theme of the art work the historv- of Texas, and around this to build an annual representing as many of the five thousand students of the University of Texas as is possible. In an effort to make the book more representative, a Dormitory section and a Junior section have been added, two sections that have never ap- peared in the Cactus previously. In the grind an attempt has been made to make it of more universal interest than in the past. Even, ' effort has been exhausted to make the 1927 Cactus truly " The Popular Book. " The Cactus this year, as in the last five years, was printed by the Hugh Stephens Press of JefTerson City, Missouri. The engra •ing for the fourth consecutive year has been done by the Southwestern Engraving Company of Fort Worth, Texas. The photography was handled by Elliott ' s Studio of Austin. The ' 27 Cactus has been produced at a cost of ap- proximately .S22,500. Sales on the book were commenced at the very first of the year, and as a result approximately 900 more books were sold this year than at any time in the history of the school. Several contributions have been received from persons whose names do not appear on the staff, and we wish to express out great appreciation to them for aid given in an effort to compile this volume. w Cactus Office Page 114 Qactiis Editorial Staff William S.

The year was one of progress in both the business and editorial parts of the paper. One of the notable changes was the creation of an editorial board, headed by a paid editorial writer, which had charge of the editorial page and its features. Editorial opinion was raised to the position of importance it deserves in the college publication. The addition of the editorial staff gave other editors more time to devote to the improvement of the news service and make-up of the paper. f , 1 The creation of a group of " special reporters " retained in the news- gathering staff many experienced reporters who would otherwise have left this work, and the increased co-operation and competition made for a highly efficient system in covering the news of the campus. Fhg present session saw the first issue of The Daily Texan Magazine, a section devoted entirely to features and literature. A number of faculty members and students contributed articles to the newest addition to the X ' arsity publications. Two editors divided the year ' s work on The Te.xan. Upon the resigna- D tion of Sam Johnson, Januarv 9, the managing editor, Granville Price, was „... nromoted to the editorship. Price was replaced as managing editor by Editor T „■ J Lee W oods.

The Editors and staff members of our college comic are connoisseurs of the inane. Their heads are crammed with jokes on liquor, love, and other froth of college life. Its airs are those of the dance, the fireside, the football game, and the petting party. From the minute Editor Steiner announces that The Ranger is going to press, until the carrier races with the huge bundles to the Co-op, the students hang breathless with antic- ipation. Crowds flock the Ranger office as staff members dart in with armloads of copy, and two office boys are employed to carry off the material which is deemed inferior to the brand usually found in The Ranger. Yes, truly. The Ranger occupies a unique place among the Uni- versity publications. The Ranger is rated as one of the best college comics in the United States. College Humor, Judge, Topics of the Day, and many other nationally famous publications clip a large amount of material from our campus comic. Under the tutelage of Editors Steiner and Holloway, the two brush and pen masters, The Texas Ranger has lived up to the high standards set by previous Ranger staffs. The other members of the staff include such notable campus wits as: Johnnie Canaday, Bozo Sammons, Jane Kay Worthington, L. J. Van Sickle, and Lorine Brougher.

Joe Steiner Editor Tom Holloway Managing Editor Page us The I ughoni (JSCagazinc COMMKNDATION from such men as Mencken and Cabell and such a woman as Frances Newman best testifies to the success and ad ancement of the Longhorn Magazine of 1926-17. For the first time in the history of the magazine, the 192(5-27 Longhorn has attracted attention outside the state, many eastern libraries having requested copies for student tables. Seven numbers of the magazine were issued, each featured by more art work, and a new editorial de- partment called Will ' s Cofifee House, and a larger department of book notes and reviews. From the 500 of 1924-2.5 and the 1000 of 1925-26, the circulation has been increased to 2,500 copies monthly. The Longhorn was established forty-one years ago under the name of the Lfniversity of Texas Literary Magazine and published by the combined eft ' orts of the Athenaeum and Rush literary societies. Today, under the name of The Longhorn Magazine, it continues as the official lieterary magazine of the L niversity, published as one of the enterprises of the Texas Students Publications, Inc.

It was founded in 1913 with Fritz G. Lanham, now a Congressman, as its first editor. Lanham was succeeded by D. A. Frank who served until the beginning of the present year. To these men and to ' John A. Lomax who served for many years as managing editor, must go the credit for the reputation this magazine enjoys. In 1923 it was apparent that the work of the association has become so hea -y that The Alcalde must be placed on a different basis, with a managing editor who could devote all his time to this work. Accordingly, Reavis Cox was made manag- ing editor. During 1925-26 William B. Ruggles, executive secretary of the associa- tion, took over these duties, but when he retired at the end of that year, his suc- cessor, John A. McCurdy, returned to the policy of a separate administration for the magazine and engaged Harry Moore as managing editor. Besides carrying news of the former students. The Alcalde endeavors to give former students a picture of the present-day campus and to carr ' articles of general interest to the educated public, if such articles are in any way connected with the University. It usually contains 100 pages of reading matter and is issued monthly during the school year. H Page 120 y E Y T ebate m I ' ' ABOUT seventy men participated in the intercollegiate debate try-outs in which all were eliminated except a squad of twelve men. The twelve men on the squad partic- ipated in the H. J. Lutcher Stark Debate Prize Contest which resulted in Percy Foreman ' s winning first place, S. A. Crowley placing second, and Marion Olson placing third. The first debate of the year was held between the Uni- -ersity of Texas and Oxford l niversity of England. The Texas team, composed of Bill Ryan, Marion Olson and Percy Foreman, upheld the afi rmati ■e of the proposition: " Re- solved, That this House favors the principle of prohibition. " The Texas team won by about a two to one vote of the audience. The debate was marked by some clever English wit, humor and logic; and the Texas team met them on all issues by dis- playing an American style of wit, humor and logic. This made the debate a very interesting one for the audience. In the Missouri Valley Debate Conference the University of Texas won two debates and lost two debates, but succeeded H. W. Harris in tying with a number of the conference schools for second Debate Coach place. The question debated in the Conference was " Re- solved, That Congress should enact legislation embodying the principles of the Haugen-McNary Farm Bills. " Marion Olsen and Percy Foreman upheld the negative against Kansas University at Lawrence and won a three to nothing decision over the Conference Champions of this year on a foreign platform. They lost by a three to nothing decision at Des Moines, Iowa, to Drake University. James L. Sherer and Leslie Byrd upheld the affirmative against the University of Colorado at Austin and lost by a two to one decision. Edwin Davis, Allan Crowley and Marion Olson upheld the negative against the University of Oklahoma at Austin and won a two to one decision. ill If II ' ' I!

Intersociety debates are held three times annually, in the fall, winter and spring terms, in which each is represented by a two-speaker team on the affirmative and negative.

WitK this change in government came a change in the immigration policy. Great numbers of Americans soon established themselves in Texas, and by 1830 the Americans outnumbered the Mexicans in Texas. The policies of the new government caused the sentiments of the people as a whole to turn against the Mexican govern- ment. The American revolution, the French revolution, and the Mexican revolution combined to inspire the people of Texas to resist the tyranny to which Mexico tried to subject them. In that year occurred Crockett ' s stand at the Alamo, so dear to the hearts of all Texans, and the brutal massacre at Goliad. Gradually Santa Anna, the President of Mexi- co and commander of her army, forced the Texas army under Houston back toward the east. On the banks of the San J acinto river, near the pres- ent site of the city of Houston, the Texans made a stand; and on the afternoon of April 21, 1836, completely routed the Mexican forces under Santa Anna. In order to save his life Santa Anna hastened to make peace and assured Texas of her independence. Mexico several times after- wards threatened to invade and retake the lost territory, but these threats were never carried out. The Texans immediately set up a govern- ment, and Texas began her existence as a re- public. " " ' fe " ' 11 To Doctor Dick P.

At the beginning of tbis period an offer of annexation w as made to tne United States, but tbis offer was refused. Tne balance of power between tbe free states of tne North and the slave states of the South w ould be undermined by the addition of Texas as a slave state into the United States. The slavery question delayed the admission of Texas into the Union for nearly ten years. The Republic of Texas vas necessarily very weak. Few people lived in the republic, and those who were in Texas were separated from each other by great distances. Mexico still refused to recog- nize the independence of Texas, although several great nations had already done so. The military force was naturally inadequate to patrol the bound- ary of the republic. The inadequacy of the military force w as prob- ably the factor which induced the pirate Lafitte to select Galveston Island as his headquarters during this period. He made use of the island as a base for several years, and is said to have buried con- siderable treasure there. When Texas became one of the United States of America, Lafitte was forced to suspend his practice of using Galveston as a base of operations. 0 ' L. THEO . B ELLMONT Director of A Metics FROM the dynamo of Director L. Theo. Bellmont ' s tremendous energy there have been generated such achievements as the Memorial Stadium, the Penick Courts and the Texas Relays. All hail to the man who has done more for Lon ghorn athletics than any other person in existence! With the passing of the years the University of Texas Athletic Depart- ment has been gradually formed and re-formed and developed to its present efificient organization. From a small and incompetent by-product of a small school, it has grown in the past quarter of a century to a system which ranks with the best in the country. As an executive and administrative bod ' the Athletic Council has been invaluable in the progress of Texas sports. The Council is composed of five faculty members, three students, and two alumni members. Dr. D. A. Penick, President of the Southwestern Conference, W. A. Felsing, E. C. E. Bantel, R. A. Law, C. P. Patterson and Director L. Theo. Bellmont are the faculty members; the students on the council are Percy Foreman, Joyce Cox and Lewis White; Max Bickler and Jim ' Hart are the alumni members. The Council has heartily backed Director Bellmont in all his great improvement projects and has handled the athletic situation at the University with judgment and efficiency. The future progress of Texas athletics will be largely due to the work of the Athletic Council, as it has made possible the great advance thus far. Paee 1S9 Qoaches As a football coach, E. J. " Doc " Stewart has given the champions a desperate struggle for four years. As a basket ball coach he has produced as a whole the best teams the Southwest Conference has seen in the pasthalf decade.

And through the years the gray-haired idol of Texas fans has sup- plied the big leagues with stars as no other college coach has ever done. May as many more titles crown Uncle Billy ' s efforts before he fights his last battle for Varsity. One of the greatest track coaches in the college world; one of the cleanest sportsmen alive — that ' s Clyde Littlefield. Since he starred on Te.xas teams, he has continued his service to his school by producing better teams. No finer product, as coach or man, has ever come from the crowded ranks of Texas " T " men. Far more valuable than the results he has achie ed m a coaching way is the lofty influence cast on Southwestern athletics bv the conference president. Dr. D. A. Penick.

King St. llter GOOCH James Line Coach The Story of the 1926 Season TEXAS, the greatest combatant in Southwestern athletics, has battled on for many moons without the glory of a football championship. The season of 1926 was no exception. However, it does not follow that Texas has produced no great teams in these many moons. For some of the mightiest machines in the South have fought under the Orange and White. Beginning with the season fol- lowing that fatal one of 1923, when a tie forced Texas to concede the title to the powerful .Mustangs of S. M. U., the calibre of Longhorn teams has grown steadily each year. This progress culminated in the season of 1926 which, though not featured by a championship campaign, was not one of which there is any cause to be ashamed. No lack of material marred the chances of the ' 26 Longhorn eleven. . 11 indications gave promise of a big season. Much was expected of the mighty Orange offensive, built around Captain Mack Saxon and Rammin ' Rufus King. On the other hand, it was conjectured by the dopsters that the Longhorn line would be the weak link in the Texas chain, since most of the losses from the 1925 squad had occurred here. Time and Bill James proved this prophecy false. In the season ' s earliest game, that with the Oklahoma Southwest Teachers College, this orange-clad line proved its invaluable worth. Behind its cast-iron barrier the backfield ran rough-shod over the Teacher defense to the tune of 31-7. Line-captain Murray Moore played a giant ' s game at tackle. Ox Higgins, work- Riifus King crushes the Kansas Aggie line on a fake Page 194 Slover Moore Olle HICW.INS ing at the end position for the first time, shone as one of the defensive stars of the day. Jack Cowley and Red Wray staged an impressive debut as X ' arsity linemen. Texas ' first test came with the invasion of the Kansas Aggies ' native soil, resulting in a 13-3 loss. The great play of the Longhorn line was one of the fea- tures of the game. The wonderful fourth-quarter passing attack of the Kansas -Aggies was the other. Texas led at the end of the first half by a field goal. During this time and through the third quarter the .Aggies were outplayed, stopped in their tracks, whipped. But in the final period an aerial attack that spurned the rain and the mud was unleashed by the Kansas gunners, and defeated the Longhorns in a clean-cut and decisive manner. Brought out by the Kansas Aggie loss was the fact that Texas was woefully weak in the way of defense against forward passing—the ver ' reason the game was lost. This defect was immediately given attention, and by the time of the Phillips game considerable improvement was manifest. . n easy 27-0 win gave Texas ample opportunity to tn,- new combinations, and a number of substitutes saw service. It was the regular lineup, however, that rolled up most of the points, in the final half. Playing the raggedest game of the season, Texas went down under the ' anderbilt attack at Fair Park Stadium, 7-0. Having braced and ostensibly begun to improve in the game with the Phillips Haymakers, the Steers secondary defense utterly crumbled before the furious Commodore assault. The Long- MURR.W i l()()KE Line-Captain A ' uiidy end cuts short Saxon ' s lour Page I9S ' jli Cowley RuFus King Captain-elect McCULLOUGH Ford J. King horn offensive drive could never get started; the old punch was not there. Even the fighting Texas line was outplayed. And the chief reason why the Orange machine failed to function was the steady, unceasing fight put up by the ' andy eleven. Texas didn ' t ha e a chance that day. However, even in defeat, there were Longhorns who stood out above the field in exhibition of fight and skill. Tiny Gooch and Murray Moore fought a mighty battle at their tackle positions. Pottie McCullough played one of the greatest pivot games that has ever featured a Te. as-Vanderbilt clash. Rosy Staller put over some pretty passing. The brightest light of the game, however, wore the Black and Gold. Hendrix, husky V ' andy back, ripped through the Texas defense time and again. It was Hendrix who scored the winning touchdown. Spears likewise starred for ' anderbilt, both in passing and running the ball. Rice was the first of the conference teams to oppose Texas in the title race- It was soon evident that the ofifense had regained its old fire, when the Owls were whipped 20-0 in a driving rain. The plunging of Rufus King was a feature of the game. Lack of concentration of attack and a rather weak defense on the part of Rice made the outcome inevitable. In spite of the valiant efforts of Herting and Joseph in particular, Texas piled up a safe margin with comparative ease. Tiny Gooch continued to stand out as the big gun in the I.onghorn line, while Bill Ford did his first bit of stellar work in the backfield. 11,1 ii Ratr.min ' Riifus hlcsls Rice ' s tackle for file Page 196 Wkav Hughes TiGNOR Allen What was probably the most sensational game of the Southwestern season was played when the S. M. V. Mustangs topped Texas in the final few minutes of action, 21-17. Pulling a beautiful double pass on the first play for a touchdown, the I.onghorns jumped into an early lead which they held until the final ten minutes of the fight. It was then that the Mustangs staged one of their phe- nomenal passing rallies, scoring the touchdown that brought them within three points of the Longhorns ' lead. Several minutes later, after Texas had received a punt on her twenty-two yard line. Chris Cortemeglia broke through and smashed a plunging back so hard that he fumbled. Jerry Mann swooped on the rolling ball like a hawk and raced across the line for the winning score. Jerry Mann ' s passing, with Dog Dawson and Love on the receiving end, was the greatest factor in the Mustang attack. Hume ' s superb broken field running and long-range punting played a big part in the fight. And it was the mighty Cortemeglia who forced the fumble that won the game. The giant Italian turned in as great a defensi e end game as has e er been seen in the Southwest. Keeping up its mighty pace, the Texas line roundly outplayed that of the Mustangs. With Red Wray, Tiny Gooch and Murray Moore going at top speed. the Red and Blue forward wall was torn asunder. In the backfield, Rufus King ' s battering ram plunging ripped off gain after gain. Mack Saxon ' s work at backing the line cut ofT most of S. M. U. ' s plunging attempts, while his pass-receiving called up shades of Hook McCullough and Blink Bedford. But the combined efforts of the Texasoffensive was not enough to win The greater offensive conquered. Ox HiGGINS Captain-elect Slover humps into a brick icall called Cortemeglia Page 197 I! Rhoades Terrell RUNDELL MOBLEY Baylor was the first team to take advantage of the defective, wide-open punt formation of the Texas team. Crashing through the spread-out Steer Hne. the Baylor forwards blocked several of Slover ' s slow punts at crucial times, thus running up their 10-7 score. Baylor ' s defensive play was such that not even Rufus King could consistently plunge for gains. Mack Saxon was the only back that smashed through, over and around the Green and Gold as he willed, playing one of the greatest games of his checkered football career. Not the least factor in the iron-clad defense of the Bears was the stellar punting of . be Kelley, the most con- sistent kicker in the conference. Weir W ' asham let loose his lightning broken-field attack more than once to bring the ball within a span of the Texas goal line, where the Steer line breaced and held. Outstanding in this line were Captain Murray Moore, Red Wray and Rocky Rundell, who played a scrappy game at center throughout. Ox Porter and Weed, with Riley, formed the backbone of the Baylor barrier. Ed Olle was the greatest end on the field, playing at the top of his form. Recovering from their temporarv ' let-down, the I.onghorns a few days later stampeded over the Southwestern University Pirates to the extent of a 27 to 6 count. In spite of the fact that it was little more than a practice session for the Steers, this game was technically one of the best of the season. The Orange wrecking crew was working with deadly precision, and the defense was well-nigh perfect. The punting and general play of Jimmy Boyles for Texas featured a game in which the entire team starred. On the Pirates ' side of the argument, Wesley Blackburn ' s all-around performance was the big light. Perfectly coached, perfectK " directed, perfectly co-ordinating, the Texas Longhorns conquered their time-worn rivals, the Texas Aggies, on Thanksgiving Day, 14-5. The Longhorn machine was never in smoother working order. Working as it was in that day, Texas was greatest football machine in the Southwest. The Orange offense was varied, swift and sure. Most effective among its weapons was the basket pass, featuring Rufus King and Clint Slover. Bill Ford grabs a pass for the first touchdown on the Aggies Page I9S " fv - - iil ESTES WisiAN, Trainer Kelly, Trainer Reinhardt, Manager Over and above the entire field, however, shone the deeds of Joel Hunt. Directing a losing team, the phenomenal little Aggie quarterback played such a game as he played against the champion Mustangs. His punting, his bullet passing, his defensive work, his interference and above all his broken-field running made him the feature performer of the day. Captain Ox Dietrich, twice all-Southwestern tackle, ended his career in a blaze of glory, though defeated. Sprott, with one jaw in a plaster cast, played the game of his life, breaking through the line to spoil more than one Texas drive. Watts at center clinched all-conference honors by his mighty game that day. To name the Texas stars of that Thanksgiving game would be to call the squad roll. For the Longhorn team that sent the Aggies home beaten was just such an eleven as A. and M. put on the field one year before. Each and every man starred in his position, while the entire eleven worked with the precision of one. Rammin ' Rufus King with his terrific plunging and his darting short passes contributed largely to the Farmer ' s downfall. Captain Mack Saxon starred in even,- part of his play, passing, plunging, tackling, blocking like a fiend; and yet directing his team in as cool a manner as has ever been witnessed by forty thousand yelling fans. Rosy Stallter made his last game one of his best. Wild Bill Ford raged and tore his way to fame. Tiny Gooch, Red Wray, Murray Moore and Pottie McCollough fought a battle in the line that is not to be seen every day. And with his beautiful punting and ground- gaining work with the basket pass, Clint Slover played his greatest game of the season. This was the development of the Texas Longhorn football team through the 1926 season. Though they failed to scale the championship heights, the Orange warriors fought such a fight that when the smoke of battle cleared away, their opponents knew that they, too, had had a fight. Slover scores second touchdown on basket pass Page 199 1926 Frosh Season % i|i! GREATLY enhancing Varsity ' s football prospects for next fall, the frosh swept through their usual successful season. Though but two games were played, they afforded sufficient proof of the power of the Littlefield lineup. With the appearance of such men as " Big Un " Rose, Gordy, Brown, Nona Rees and the other yearling lights, Longhorn football stock for next season took a rise of several points. Featuring an airtight defense, the freshmen flattened Peacock Military Academy in San Antonio for the first win of the season, 18-0. Blocking the way like boulders in the forward wall were line-captain Gordy Brown, Frank Cheatham and Bobb - Garrett. As for the offensive, that important factor was put over largely through the efforts of Nona Rees, Perkins and Paul Krueger. Playing an end I M....- ... position, Captain " Big Un " Rose was one of the outstanding stars I u nHi of the game. I I H Except for scrimmages with Varsity, no further action gave the I I HHj yearlings a chance to exhibit their wares until Thanksgiving day. » ' On the morning of the traditional Texas-Aggie clash the Burleson Bears invaded the ancient confines of Clark Field to tangle with the first year men. After an hour or so of strife they betook themselves to the showers, bowed under a 20-14 defeat. In the course of the battle Captain Rose, now playing from behind the line, and Nona Rees bore the burden of the frosh attack. Jack Modesette and plunging Paul Krueger accounted for more than a few gains. In the line Gordy Brown was the big gun, ranging the field like a bull seeing red. When the Varsity roll call is sounded next fall, there will be no shortage of recruits from the frosh. Aside from the stars already named there are others slightly less powerful.

Hi Stallter Olle Nation EsTES The 19 27 Basket " Ball Season WORKING the strenuously powerful system of Coach Doc Stewart, the 1927 basket ball team moved a notch nearer the perfection of the machine of ' 24. It was good enough to tie the S. M. U. Mustangs for second place; to defeat the champion Arkansas Razorbacks in the only games they lost during the season. When the Te.xas attack was once launched, there was no defense in the Southwest equal to the task of holding it in check. For the factor of ever- ready relief in the form of a star second string team made it possible to keep up a furious attack while the regulars rested. This and Doc Stewart ' s effective man-for-man defensive s stem, that baffled the best point-scorers in the conference, were the chief factors of the Longhorns ' success as runners-up. Before the first conference game was played, the Texas courtiers suffered several set-backs. St. Edwards L ' niversity accounted for one of these defeats, featuring Captain Sticks Reilly in the triumph. Led b ' Alonty Montgomery, the Oklahoma Southwest Teachers topped Texas once to split the series. And even earlier than this the Longhorns were licked by the all-star Hilliard team of St. Joseph, Missouri. DeBernardi, reputed to be the greatest basket ball player in the country, flashed brilliantly in leading his team to triumph. Finally, the Steers went down before the onslaught of the Canyon Normal five, the team that flashed a line of attack superior to that of any Southwestern Conference fi ' e the ' met. Page 204 Kino Brock Wkay LOONEY First on the conference schedule of Texas were the Baylor Bears, who were conceded good chances of coming out near the top of the pennant race. The same combination that had played together for two vears before was still intact, and good for another year. The Texas team, however, outplayed the voung Bruin aggregation to win, 22-16. Two opposite defensive systems —the five-man and the man-for-man— clashed in this contest, and the latter proved superior. Outstanding among the losers was Keifer Strickland, sensational straight-shooting forward. Holly Brock, a young recruit from the freshmen, starred offensively for the Steers, along with Carrie Nation. ' Johnnv Estes plaved the best defensive game on the floor. Back on the home courts the Steers lost their first conference game, when T. C. U. corralled the Herd, 28-24. Cantelmi ' s floor-work and Rags Matthews ' all-round play accounted for most of the Frogs ' marks. Their rate of travel that night was just too fast for Texas, and the result was a win for the Christians. For the first time of the season the Texas sub team of Patrick, WVav, Loone -, Monroe and Krueger was used to effect, holding the Toads as well as the regulars could for a while in the second half. Rosy Stalker was the brightest light of the entire game, however, looping 12 points for high-scoring honors and playing all-Amencan basket ball in the wav of floor-work and passing. This was Captain Rosy ' s red-letter game of the season. Before tackling the Rice Owls, the Longhorns took the Southwestern Pirates in their stride to administer a 33-27 beating. Carrie Nation carried off the high-scoring distinction with an even ten. Captain Re nolds of Southwestern pushing him closely. Wesley Blackburn Put m some good licks for the Buccaneers, and Joe King did some nice work on the Texas side of the contest. ith the same methods but with more precision in teamwork, Texas turned the Rice :| ' ii Page 205 Monroe Krueger Patrick Owls back a few days later, 28-19. Holly Brock chalked up 13 points to lead the scorers and, with Stalker, turned in the best exhibition of passing on the court. Herting, with his rough and tumble headlong style of play, and Grant with his floorwork and guarding played the biggest part in Rice ' s resistance. Ed Olle and Johnny Estes, as good a pair of guards as could be found in the district, played an air-tight defensive game. After the interlude of conference competi- tion the Steers went back to Southwestern for opposition, defeating them a little more decisively than before, this time by a 31-14 count. When in the height of their on-to-the-pennant stride, the Longhorns were toppled by the Aggies at College Station by one bare point, 36-35. The high-power play of the Texas team was met by an opposition of just as heaw calibre. Baker, stellar Farmer guard, was barely beaten for high-point honors by Nation, who rung up 13 markers. Both Estes and Olle starred on the defensive for Texas. After this temporan,- check. Texas swung into her high tide of the season ' s play. After the College Station disaster the Steers proceeded to Houston, where they whipped the Rice fi ' e in a decisive manner, featuring teamwork and short passing. The score was 30-24. When the loop-leading Arkansas team in -aded the Texas courts, they were turned back by the most brilliant bit of basket ball of the conference season. Playing at the top of their stride, the Steers trampled the Razorbacks in both battles, the first 32-29, the second 28-24. The first fight was probably won by the timely relief of the second-string, who played the Porkers off their feet while the regulars were resting. Then the first-stringers came back and scored the winning points. Throughout his play, little Holly Brock flashed the most brilliant floorwork seen on the Texas court for some seasons. Johnny Estes and Nation contributed greath- to the ictory. If iMlliff Page 20(t kidL Clinton Harwell Friend, Manager The chief task of the winners lay in holding Pickel, young Hog star, who scored 11 points to lead the loopers. Steel also gave the home team a lot of trouble. In the second game Brock again kept the crowd standing, with his brilliant play, and Johnny Estes about placed himself on the all-conference five by his woik. The second-stringers again saved the day, scoring eight points on the champs in the last half to tie the count. After these triumphs, the Texas team apparently experienced a let-down. In Fort Worth they were forced to bow to a 32-27 T. C. U. majority, when the Horned Frogs overcame a fair lead in the final stanza to come out ahead. Two nights later another defeat was marked up against Stewart ' s fighting five, when S. M. U. ' s Ponies stampeded and took the game, 25-23, in the last few minutes of play. Both Brock and Estes played a great game in this battle, but all to no avail. In getting back to their winning stride, the Longhorns beat the St. Edwards Saints in two games before meeting the Mustangs again in Austin. The second S. M. U. game was just a reverse of the first, Texas winning 25-23. Estes plaving from a guard position, took off high-point honors, and with his floorwork, guarding and general all-round play was the greatest star of the game. Brock and Nation ably seconded Johnny and counted high in putting over the win. Dawson and Wooldridge did some air-tight guarding for the Ponies. With this win marked up, the stage was all set for the final game of the Texas season, that with the Aggies. The Steers loped through to a 39-27 win, Stallter finishing his court career with one of the greatest games of his life. Nation and Estes and Brock and Olle all flashed great form. This win placed Texas in a tie with the Mustangs for second place, and brought to a close a brilliant season. Page 207 m 1927 Frosh Season DIRECTED by Coach Clyde Littlefield, the freshman cagers kept up their winning record and lost only one game during their season, out of five played. Shreiner Institute was the only team to top the yearlings, and they took one game out of a three-game series. Terrill Prep school of Dallas and Austin High were defeated by the frosh attack, led by Captain Nona Rees. It was apparent at the beginning of the 1927 season that there was a wealth of material on the yearling squad, and this fact became more and more apparent as time wore on. Aside from outside competition, the freshmen divided themselves into four teams, captained by Rees, Cheatham, Fomby and Blacklock, and fought it out among themselves for premier honors. After a rough campaign, Frank Cheatham ' s team finally won over the rest of the field. In the course of the season ' s action, more than a few potential stars showed up to the critical e e of Clyde Littlefield. Among the outstanding men of the freshman squad was Captain Nona Rees, star guard from San Antonio. Rees featured every game with his stellar play, and held the best of forwards helpless with his guarding. Frank Cheatham at center and forward, as well as Moody and Walker at forward, proved to be future Varsity stars. Fomby flashed big-time form at center, and Hawn and Witsell at guard starred consistently. All indications point to a considerable increase in the strength of the Varsity team next winter when the recruits from the frosh begin to flow in. And with three stars departing from the 1927 aggregation, and the other South- western Conference teams becoming stronger than e er, Texas will need all the re-inforcement available. The following men were awarded numeral sweaters for their season ' s achievements: Cap- tain Rees, Cheatham, Fomby, Witsell, Walker, Moody, Hawn, Gholson, Blacklock, Faubion, Ware, Saxon, Crockett and Reichert. 1927 Freshman Team Page 20S 6 jfD Gl lull itiit ' ill 1926 (Conference Standing P II ' L Pet.

The team was young, but by that same token was one of the hardest fighting aggregations Coach Disch has ever put upon the field. Fighting with their backs to the wall, and with splendid co-operation, the Steers would not be beaten, and through this spirit the team carried on to the end. The pennant chase was the closest, and most inter- esting race for many seasons past. First one club and then another would be leading, and not until the last game with T. C. U. was the race finally decided with the Longhorns leading by a game and a half. Coach Disch. peer of all baseball coaches, presented a well-balanced machine with no individual stars, but with splendid team-work, and loyal spirit. The team was perfectly drilled in every department of the game and to see the machine-like precision of every play was a rare treat. Before the season was hardly begun it was evident that the Steers would present a formidable line-up and the conference Hag was in the offing soon to be brought again to the Longhorn corral. The club as a whole developed to the extent that there were no flaws noticeable. There were no Kibbies or Odoms to work around the keystone bag, but with the reliable Thompson, shifted to second, and Harris on short the second base combi- Baker Olle Harris Allen nation was solved. This change made a smooth-working machine on the de- fensive and the offensive strength had been proven already. The season ' s averages showed the Steers to have a batting average of J2i, with 585 times at bat for 130 runs and 179 hits. Williamson was the leading individual hitter with the phenomenal average of .486. His fielding average was perfect. The team played a total of 18 games, winning 15 and losing 3 for an average of .833. This is an amazing average considering the team as a whole, it was the initial year of play for four of the regulars. The fielding of the club was equally as good as the hitting. The team had a fielding average of .947 with 408 put-outs, 138 assists and with 30 errors. William- son led the youngsters in this phase of the game, and Baker was leading pitcher with — wins and — losses for an average of . Pratt was the most .sensational fielder in the conference. It was only in the day ' s work for him to go back to the fences and take a drive over his head with either his gloved or bare hand. Texas opened the season with an easy 32 to 6 win over Minnesota, collecting 27 hits off three opposing pitchers. Every man on the Longhorn squad was used in the game which was a farce as far as a ball game is concerned. Williamson and Baumgartner led the hitting attack with four hits each. This game with the Westerners was only a practice session to get the Steers ready for the St. Louis Cardinals, world ' s champions. II! Baker Leading pitcher Williumson steals second Page 213 Ramsey Williams Baumgartner Redfern m Rogers Hornsby brought his club fromtheir training camp in San Antonio to battle the Steers in their second game of the season. Texas showed a world of stuff and would have won but for the wildness of Baker, who forced in three runs in the third inning, and the lead was too great to overcome. Rogers got a long two-base hit w ith the bases empty; it was his only hit of the day. Ed Olle was the offensive star of the day collecting three hits off the great Jess Haines of world-series fame. The game served to show the strength of the Longhorns in both offensive and defensive play. The game was played before the largest crowd of the season. The score: Cardinals 11, Texas 8. The next three games were merely pre-conference games, the Steers winning two easy games from Centenao ' by the scores of 7 to and 6 to 4. Cox and Baker each pitched a game and let the gentlemen down with five hits in the two contests. Little Jackie Radford offered the offensive and defensive punch in each of the games— his play •wae sensational. The third game was with Southwestern and Ed Olle won it in Horatio Alger fashion, lifting one of Lynum ' s curves over the left field wall in the last half of the ninth with two out. The score was 4 to 3. It was a great drive by a truly great hitter. The first conference game was with Rice Institute or we might say with the erstwhile Grandpa Woods. The Longhorns began the season right by collecting fourteen hits and thirteen runs. Cox pitched the greatest game of his career, allowing but three scattered hits and no runs. After Baker had allowed the Pirates of Southwestern but two hits and no runs for a Steer victory, the next game was with the Horned Frogs who proved to be a thorn in the Longhorn path of victories. The Texas team played list- lessly throughout the game and the Frog outfit won a clear-cut victorj- with a 6 to 5 victory. The short left-field fence cost the Texas team several runs, but the Frogs won and gave the Dischmen a great set-back in their race for another pennant. Thompson ' s defensive play was the only feature of the game. Dallas, Manager Williams, Mascot Smalley, Frosh Coach Glaze, Office Manager The Longhorns came right back to take four easy games — two from S. M. U. by scores of 5 to and 14 to 6, and two games from Arkansas by scores of 7 to and 13 to 1. These games seemed to get the Dischmen confident and it was evident that the hitting strength was as strong as it had been in former years. The first game with our arch rivals was played on the Aggie diamond. It was a see-saw affair, with first one team and then another leading, and for a time it seemed that the Steers would lose another, but through the strategy of Coach Disch the game was pulled from the fire and Texas won by a score of 9 to 8. It was a great pitcher ' s battle between Koerth and Baker with Koerth having a slight edge. It was not until the ninth inning that Koerth weakened and allowed the Steers three hits and two runs and thereby a ball game. The whole Longhorn outfit were hissed as they left the playing field. Texas 11, T. C. U. — The score alone tells of a free-hitting game with Williamson leading the attack with four safeties. The pennant was at stake for the winner and it was the easiest game of the conference schedule for the Texas team. Three Frog pitchers were nicked for twelve hits, while Baker was allowing four scattered bingles. The whole Longhorn machine functioned perfectly on the defensive — Harris fielding in a sensational manner. After Disch had outgeneraled Bridges of the Bears for a 3 to 2 win, the Aggies invaded the Longhorn corral with vengeance. The pennant had been cinched with the winning of the Bear tussle,and through listless and indifferent playing the Aggies won easily with a score of 9 to 1. Despite the loss of the game, the crowds poured onto the field to congratulate Coach Disch and his team for the splendid play which carried the University to its fourteenth cham- pionship. It was the end of a thrilling season with a young team performing in great fashion. Williamson safe at third Page 215 _ , m nv I -J it III il Freshman baseball THE 1926 Freshman baseball team was composed of many sensational stars who had made great records in high school and semi-pro ball. Many of the members of the team were finished players before coming under the tutelage of Coach Disch, and through this fact a smooth working machine was easily built. Meredith Hopkins of Central High School of Fort Worth was elected captain of the team. He had served two years under Abe Curtis before coming to the university, and was acquainted with the Disch style of playing. The other outstanding stars of the team were Rhodes, Hughes, Hogue, Edwards, Davis, Walker, Mueller, Leach and Johnson. The Freshmen played se ' eral games with St. Edwards Academy and Austin High School, winning the majority of these games. They played a series of six games with the second Longhorn team and split even in this series. In the series freshman Edwards led the hitting and freshman Hopkins led the fielding. The team as a whole played well and it was only through a better knowledge of the game that the substitutes held the earlings as well as they did. Rhodes, Hopkins, Davis, Edwards, Leach, Walker, Hughes and Muelder will add much to the strength of the 1927 team. Meredith Hopkins Captain 19Zt) Frosh team Page 216 Y I ■vy K.

The mighty pounding stride of Ramsdell still booms through the records The padded pace of the great Jim Reese has not et been silenced by time. Haggard ' s serpentine twist still exists in the actual present. Thus has Texas ever given to the athletic world more than her quota of the flaming lights of trackdom. Thus has Texas ever reigned supreme on the Southwest cinder path. What Georgetown has been to eastern track, what Illinois has been to the middle west, what Southern California has been to the Pacific Coast, Texas has e er been to the Southwest. The season of 1926 proved no exception to the rule of Longhorn supremacy. By winning the conference meet at Fort Worth by a lead of nearlv ' thirtv points over the runner-up, after a disappointingly slow development through the spring, Clyde Littlefield ' s men upheld time-honored tradition. Although the team that won first honors for the Orange and White was not the superb machine that battled the Aggies to the last ditch in ' 25, it was rather more than one hundred Wright leads 120 highs in Texas relays Page 120 ».J I GOOCH Cock K ELL BUDD per cent better than the aggregation that participated in the Texas Relays in the early spring. A vast and steady improvement as time went by was the outstanding characteristic of the 192G Texas track season. First on the lists of the Longhorns was the annual event of the Te.xas Relays, held in the Memorial Stadium on March 26. The neces- sarily early date pre ented the very best showing of the participants, especially those from the South, who took practically no part in the winter indoor meets. However, with such competition of national importance as the teams of Georgetown, Missouri, Illinois, and other big eastern and middle-western schools, the games came up to their usual big-league standard. Among the best relay records was that of Kansas University in the two-mile event, a time of 7:58.5, or an average of 1 :59 for the half- mile. Adrian Paulen, Dutch speedster, occupied the same role as did Harold Osborne in 1925, and exhibited big-time form in the quarter- mile. Although the Flying Dutchman ' s running form was not nearly so smooth as that of some of the lesser lights in the event, he managed to consistentK- reach his destination in less than fifty seconds. The middle west seemed to be most prominent in point of individ- ual stars in the meet. Guthrie of Ohio, Chick Werner ' s rival for middle-western hurdle supremacy, won the pentathlon and the special Smith COCKRELL Captain-elect Landa noses Wheelun, of Georgelowii, out in tlie WO I l.l S .. ■:::. J .-: J Haggard Neblett Shepherd Miller high hurdle race. Doss Richerson of the University of Missouri hove the shot 46 feet 5 1-8 inches to win the event. Potts won the pole vault for Oklahoma with a hoist of 12 feet 7 7-8 inches. The chief bearers of Southwestern standards were Rufus Haggard and Stud Wright, both Long- horns. Haggard cleared the bamboo at 6 feet 2 7-8 inches to cop the high jump, while the Texas captain won second honors in the pentathlon. Possibly the greatest aggregation of track stars on the Relays list was the Georgetown team. Two of them easily led the field in their respective events. Hines, a Houston product, took the javelin with a throw of 192 feet 4 inches, while Dowding, who has leaped 25 feet more than once, broad-jumped 23 feet 3 inches. In its second year, the early spring classic of the Southwest well approached the Kansas and the Drake Relays in scope of interest and competition. Gradual development marks the period in Texas track activities from the Relays to the meet with Southwestern University. On the day following the Te.xas Relays the team was taken to Houston to participate in the Rice Relays. Haggard again annexed the high jump, while his team-mate Shepherd took a close second. Landa won first place for Texas in the century from fast competition. After the Rice games the Georgetown team remained in Austin for a week of training, and on April 3 an exhibition meet between Geo rgetown and Texas was staged. Since the eastern aggre- gation was not present in full force, no points were counted. And it was well that they were not, for the more hardened easterners so easily outclassed the Longhorns that there was no comparison. At a later date the competition might have been somewhat closer, but not enough to threaten the Georgetown array with defeat. With such men as Tony Plansky, reputed among eastern sport followers to be America ' s greatest collegiate athlete, Norton, who gave Harold Osborne and li ' i ' i i m Haggard repeatedly captures honors in the high jump Page in -S2.- J Vl r V V Brown HAxMMOND Conner Reynolds Charlie Hoff considerable competition in their all-round meet last winter, Dowding, who has out- jumped DeHart Hubbard, and the several other stars of national renown, Georgetown was in a postition to pluck whatever plums she took a fancy to, in the average meet. The outstanding feature of the affair, however, was Shepherd ' s high jump of 6 feet 5 5-16 inches, after he had been eliminated from competition. By the time of the Kansas Relays, Shepherd had steadied his form in the high jump and had become more consistent. The lanky sophomore won the event at Lawrence with a height of 6 feet 4 inches. Fully recovered from the mumps which kept him out of the Texas games, Aubrey Cockrell clipped his time to 9.9 seconds in one heat of the hundred, but managed to come only fourth in the final event. The winning time was, incidentally, 9.6 seconds by Alton Locke of Nebraska. The Texas medley relay team had to be contented with fourth place, having been •weakened beyond measure by the loss of Comanche Jim Reese. While half the team were in Lawrence, Kansas, the remainder of Littlefield ' s crew went to Houston and deftlv ran up 68 points to Rice ' s 49 in the first conference dual meet. Captain Wright was high-point man of the meet with ten counters. Big Leo Baldwin showed a marked improvement of form in the shot-put, heaving the lead 44 feet 9 inches. Texas totaled eight first places to the Owls ' six. From Kansas the Longhorns proceeded to the Drake Relays. There, however, they succeeded in garnering only a paltry four fourth places in the relay races. The games were featured by the 9.5 time on the hundred by Locke, which was ruled out because of the wind at his back, and the 13-foot 93 4-inch vault of Charlie Hoff. Conference hurdles prore inleresling Page 223 A A ' ;i Patterson Nichols McCarroll BUBAR li ,1 i ' The dual meet with Southwestern ITniversity on May 1 marks the real arrival at mid-season form of the 1926 Longhorn track team. In the course of the meet, no less than five conference records were bettered, four of them by Texas men. Gusman of the Pirates clicked the 440 off in 50.2 seconds, leading the field the whole circuit with his piston-driving stride. Haggard continued his .supremacy in the high jump by leaping 6 feet 3 inches. Cockrell reeled off the 220 in 21.5 seconds. Cecil Smith jerked a whoop from the stands when he cleared 23 feet 3 inches in the broad jump, while Tiny Gooch sailed the discus 138 feet 8 inches for the loop record plus a substantial margin. As for the final score, the Steers had no trouble in smothering their adversaries from Georgetown by a 93-24 score. A muddy, heavy track prevented either team from showing much when Texas met A. M. in time-honored rivalry one week before the conference get-together. Nevertheless, the Long- horns swamped the back-slidden Aggies by a count of 85 to 32. Only in two events did the Farmer athletes excel beyond question. Mule Wilson pounded one hundred yards through the mire in ten flat, while Ox Dietrich shot the javelin 173 feet, a very modest heave for that indi " idual. It was evident that neither team had near the strength it had the previous season. The 1926 conference meet, although it fell far below the standard of thrills and color set by the classic of ' 25, was certainly not devoid of interest to sport followers. Six records were shattered in the wild scramble for points. New faces came to the fore. New names were emblazoned on the Southwe st scroll of fame. And it was well, for more than one super-star was lost to the 1926 season. Hooper of S. M. U. was kept from setting the first Southwestern mile record under 4:20 largeh ' on account of ineligibility. Sand - Esquivel, co-captain of the Longhorns and greatest long- distancer the South has ever seen, was eliminated with a snapped ankle-bone. And most of the record-breakers of 1925 had graduated and left the task to younger men. Page 224 1 B. LD VIN Stevenson, Manager Basford LiTTLEFiELD, Head Coach Three of the six new conference marks were set bv Longhorn athletes. Captain Wright broke " Too Long " Jones ' record in the high hurdles with a 15.1. Shepherd topped Haggard ' s best try to set a new height of 6 feet SH inches in the high jump. Leo Baldwin, single-handed wmner of the 1924 interscholastic meet, pushed the 16-pound lead through 46 feet 6 mches of space for a new distance. Texas A. M. and Bavlor accounted for the remaining trio of marks. Ox Diet- rich of the Aggies hurled the javelin 193 feet I ' a inches, while his fellow worker, Parker, clipped the 440 to .50.2 seconds. After whirling the discus to within a span of 158 feet in the preceding S. M. U.-Baylor meet. Jack Taylor of the Bears dropped off to 14.3 feet 6I4 inches in the con- ference tourney. Needless to say, Littlefield ' s athletes came through with the usual decisive win. At the national intercollegiate meet in Chicago on June 14, Rufus Haggard, lanky and awk- ward Texas University junior, won undying fame by clearing the high-jump bamboo at 6 feet 7I4 inches. Not only ' is this a new world intercollegiate record, but it is a height that has been equalled or bettered ' bv only one other man beside Haggard. That man is the great Harold Osborne, king of all the high-jumpers. Jack Taylor partly shared the Longhorn ' s honors with a second place in the discus. Ox Dietrich also copped a second in the javelin, while Cecil Smith ot Te.xas took fourth in the broad jump. The Southwest was not at all badly represented. Thus ended a season which had begun amid the gloom of scant prospects for Texas, but which developed in time into another of the l right pages in Longhorn cinder-path history. Texas Aggies lake the lead in the conference relay Page 22f PI mm Frosh Track Season ALTHOUGH there were no freshmen meets during the season, the quality of the frosh cinder-path squad and the prospects of added power to the 1927 Varsits- team was brought out. Competi- tion was not lacking, even though it was not organized, for on every Saturday time trials were held at the Memorial Stadium, in which both yearlings and old-timers competed. In these practice events several stellar performers were discovered on the first-year team. In the matter of distance material, Barney Slaughter and Joe Wheeler showed up as the best bets for new additions to Varsit ' . Slaughter in particular proved to have the stuff for big things. Bar- nett in the 880 and Captain Daniels and Weaver in the quarter put in an exceptionally good season. Daniels will be a much-needed addi- tion to the diminishing ranks of Longhorn middle-distance men. Scotty Wysong and Briscoe took care of the dashes in neat style, and Conaway and Ward showed good form in the hurdles. Ward will in time develop into one of the foremost timbertoppers in the conference. In the field events, Eanes flung the discus in a promising manner, while Walter Howe showed prospects of a rosy future in the high jump. Alex Hamilton performed well enough in the pole vault to beat out all other ftosh contenders. All in all, the quality of the freshman track team was all there if quantity wasn ' t. And when these men become eligible for conference competition, quite a few more points are due to be added to the Longhorn total.

The University first gained recognition in this sport when previous to the war Stacy and Broad made a name for themselves and the school throughout the Southwest and the South. In 1921 Granger and Drumwright came within two points of capturing the national doubles championship. Drummond went to the semi-finals in the national meet. In 1924 White and Thalheimer won the national collegiate doubles, only to repeat their performance in the following year. In the summer of 1926, while not playing in the collegiate circuits, White and Thalheimer added more laurels to their name. At the close of the season they were named as the second ranking doubles in the country, and White was recognized as the sixth ranking player in the I ' nited States. What school would not be proud of such an array of stars? Dr. Penick Coach Top row — Wilkinson, Mathek. Watson, Manager Bottom row — Boone, Key, Penick, Coach; I. ove, Brewster I !i Fagf 22S THE 1926 tennis team upheld the tradition of ne er losing both the singles and doubles matches in any meet since tennis was declared a major sport at the uni ersit -. There were stars on the team who played just as brilliantly as did White and Thalheimer when they were wearing the orange and white. The team won e er - dual meet and succeeded in winning the con- ference meet after a gruelling fight. Wilkinson, Mather, Captain Love, and Key were the outstanding members of the team. This galary of stars have another year of competition and by the end of their career they should be just as scintillating as ' hite or Thalheimer. Albert Love Captain ,-■• ' VuijrtC ' iri Page 229 The New Penick Courts ' l ' Mather Love Key Wilkinson R new of 1926 Season THE 1920 tennis squad was the best-balanced squad the University has put on the courts in many years. Under the able tutelage of Dr. Penick, premier coach of the southwest, the team was molded into championship form and at no time did any one man show better playing than did another. Captain Love often rose to the occasion and showed superior foim, but soon the other members of the squad were at his heels. As a result Dr. Penick found difficulty in selecting the best man for tne individual meets. The squad played the University of Oklahoma, Baylor, Rice, A. and M. and S. M. U. The meet with Oklahoma proved to be the only real stumbling block to the Longhorn netters. However, varsity finally nosed the Sooners out, four to two in matches. The issue in this meet was doubtful all the afternoon, and was settled only when Wilkinson and Key rose to dazzling heights to defeat the Sooners ' doubles team and thereby win the meet. It was the most exciting meet of the year. A. and M. was defeated with ease. Dr. Penick not bothering to send his first team to this meet. It was a case of not enough ability on the part of the Aggies, nd the results were even better than the Texas mentor hoped for. The men making the trip put all they had into the matches to try a comeback, and perhaps a higher tennis rating than they already had in the eyes of the coach. Southern Methodist University was defeated in much the manner as was A. and M. Long John Barr proved the only stumbling block to the Texas team as he won his singles match in good style after being forced to the limit m the contest. Because of heavy rains the previous day, the meet was played on varsity ' s concrete courts, and the play was comparatively slow, since neither team had been practicing on concrete. Wilkinson, Love, Mather and Key starred with their sensational play during the meet, and but for the singles the Texas team swept the opposition aside with ease. il i|l . «■€ • Mather and Love lake the net Page IJO i Brewster Boone Ward, Manager EcKDAHL, Trainer Rice was defeated easily by the score of four to one. The sixth match between White of Rice and Wilkinson was called on account of darkness with Wilkinson of Texas leading with one set and eight all on the second. The Rice team showed a lack of training, and never was the meet in danger. Baylor was played in Waco and was defeated easily, with no member of the Texas team having to extend himself to win. The Longhorn players were fast, showing their true form and with their great playing it was seen that they would be a strong contender in the conference meet. The Baylor team possessed three stars of nearly equal caliber, but none of these men were as good as the average Penick-coached player. The Baylor team showed up vers ' poor in the doubles matches, but forced the Steers to hustle to take the singles matches. In the Fall the University of Oklahoma journeyed to Austin to play the regularly scheduled Fall dual meet. It was a case of too much fighting spirit and the Steers won handily by a four-to-two score. The Fall meet was an almost exact replica of the Spring meet, with Wilkinson and Key fighting with their backs to the wall; they finally rallied at the close of the second set and came out victors. It was very close play that featured all through the whole meet, and never once was the result in sight. The conference meet was played in Austin, and was one of the most exciting tournaments ever held in the South- west. The Texas team was never so far in the lead that the meet was safe, for the other teams would always come back to take a set and put themselves on an equal footing with the Steers. The most exciting matches of the meet were the ones between John Barr of S. M. U. and Love of Texas. Barr finally nosed the Steer captain out and won the singles matches for his school. The Texas team easily won the doubles matches, however, and kept intact the record of Texas tennis teams ' never having lost both sections of the conference championship since tennis became a major sport in the Southwestern Conference. Texas won the meet on points, and as a result gained the honor of being champions for another year. Captain Love, playing his last year, Mather, Wilkinson, and Key, were the outstanding members of the squad. Love and Mather paired and Wilkinson and Key paired in the doubles, and these doubles teams seldom lost a match. Their superiority was shown in every meet of the year. Wilkinson gets ready to make return Page 231 Freshman Tennis liT ' il THE 1926 freshman tennis team presented an array of stars that would have done any college or university proud. It was a well-balanced team that battled varsity to the finish in all the practice matches, and through this stiff opposition made the wearers of the orange and white better tennis players. The freshman were hard workers and soon picked up the Penick style of play. The stars of the squad were Ferguson, Allison, Dunlap and Ammann. Each of these men were star racqueteers in high school and succeeded in going to the finals in the state interscholastic meet for several years. Ferguson and Allison acted as captains of the team, though there was never an election held. Ferguson was sensational in his style of play; and, on numerous occasions, he defeated the best on the varsity squad. Allison was a wonder. He was paired with John Barr in the Philadelphia meet this past summer, and he won the admiration of all who saw him pla -. In several years he may be as great as the sensational White of varsity fame. The team as a whole showed rare form in the few matches that they participated in, and several of these men should materially strengthen varsity tennis in the few years to come.

But neither was the season a failure, for the Longhorn harriers won two out of three dual meets and placed well up in the conference affair. Led by Captain Harry Miller and ex-Captain Spider Conner, Coach McLean ' s men gave all con- cerned a stiff fight for honors. First among the cross-country clashes of the fall season was the Aggie meet, which the Steers took without much trouble. Next came the SMU Mustangs, boasting among their number such stars as Winston Hooper and John Donahoe. However, Harr - Miller beat Hooper out for first honors, and Donahoe was disqualified when he lost his way. Earl Conner was unable to participate on account of a bad cold. The race with Rice finished the dual meet scheduled for the Longhorns, Rice winning the affair by a comfortable margin. Brunson, former interscholastic star, led the field to win first place for the Owls. Climaxing the cross-country season was the conference meet in Houston, run through drizzling rain and over a muddy course. With her great array of distance stars. Rice won the meet by a fair margin, Brunson leading the field to the finish line. Two Texas men, Conner and Miller, finished in the first ten. Thus ended a rather mediocre season, compared to what has gone before. But with promising material coming up from the new men.

The knell of wrestling, the major sport, was tolled in the season of 1926. The teant is still maintained, but letters are given the wrestlers by the Texas athletic authorities only on special merit. Ralph W. Hammonds was the onl - man on the 1927 wrestling team to earn this consideration, having twice won the national middleweight title. In his 1927 try at national honors, Hammonds entered both in the 160-pound and the 175-pound divisions in the tournament at Ames, Iowa. After a strenuous round of wrestling, in which he won six straight matches, the Texas two-time champion was eliminated by a fresher opponent. He worked to the finals in both weights, however. Even w-ith his great power, Hammonds, the greatest middleweight grappler in American collegiate circles, had undertaken too much, and failed to win his third consecutive national championship — a feat w hich has never yet been accomplished. Throughout the season the efforts of Ralph Hammonds stood out abo -e the rest. His work featured the season. Under the tutelage of Coach Roy McLean, however, other good wrestlers were developed, and as successful a season as could be expected under the circumstances of scarce competition was enjoyed by the Texas squad. Enough talent was brought out in the course of the year to assure Texas of a wrestling team that can hold its own in the conference if the sport is revived in the future. Ralph Hammond Captain Action on the mat Page 23S I s Intramural Sports D ' few intramural iTRIXG the past tew years athletics in the University of Texas have de eloped from a neglected and minor depart- ment to one of the most important factors in the educational system. Under the efficient direc- tion of Berry Whitaker, head of the department, the Texas intramural system has come to rank with those of the big northern and eastern uni- versities — among the foremost in the college world. During the past school year more than 2,000 boys participated in the various intra- mural sports. The number of teams aried,. basket ball bringing out the greatest number, which was 54. A bit of explanation as to the general plan of conducting intramural sports might give a better view of the acti •ities. At the head of the whole system is Director Whitaker, assisted by a senior student council of three, and a managerial board of six. The three main divisions of competition are: departmental, fraternity and independent. Intra-divisional games are first played, the winners of each division playing the winners of the other two divisions for the all-university championship. By means of this organization, high interest is stimulated among the participants. As awards, cups are given the winning fraternity teams, individual sweaters to the champion departmental and independent teams, and medals to individual winners. In the spring of 1926, six sports were carded for intramural competition. The fraternity baseball title was taken by Delta Sigma Phi, featuring one of the strongest fraternity nines ever- to play in an intramural tournament. The B. B. A. school won the departmental championship. In the way of track, Sigma Nu reigned supreme, putting forth some stars that would have done well to come out for Varsity. Tennis honors were carried off by the Law team.

Fraternity and university swimming laurels were carried off by the Kappa Sigma aggregation, the Kngineer aquatics taking the departmental championship. The wrestling champs, begin- ning with the hea - weight winner, were Robert Eanes. Tom Martin Da is, W. N. Blakeney. K. F. Roberts and M. S. Norris. n the fall term the best intramural foot- ball season to date was staged. In the finals, the Pre-Meds defeated the Academic team b - a scant margin, ending a hard fought campaign. Out of the eight games played, three were score- less ties; and not one was won by a margin of over se en points. More interest than e ' er be- fore was shown in the sport, 129 men turning out Handball Champs for it. In the tennis singles, W. E. Fitch won out o ' er considerable competition, annexing the university championship. One of the hardest fought campaigns of the season came when the basket ball schedule was played off. A greater number of men were entered in this sport than in any other on the intra- mural card. The B. B. A. five came out winners in the departmental group, the Bowers team among the independents, and Sigma Nu in the fraternity class. In the finals, the B. B. A. ' s took the university title after a hard battle. Soon afterward, the Engineer combination ran away with the cross-country honors, J. T. French standing out as individual winner. In the course of the hill-and-dale race, several prospective team men were dug up by the ever-vigilant track authorities. Probably the most universally interesting ofall the year ' s intramural sports was the all- university boxing tournament held at the fag end of the winter term. Special interest was taken in this sport, and a classy array of leather-pushers turned out for competition. The preliminaries e i ft ' ' ' tt • Engineer Boxing Champs Page 237 INTRAMURAL SPORTS— Continued and the semi-finals were held at the I ' niversity athletic headquarters, while the finals were staged in the Men ' s G -m. An unusually large crowd came out for the feature intramural event of the year. In the 115-pound class, Martin won (over Reagan by forfeit, a case of not making the I ) I required weight. Butler of the Business Ad- f " ' " " ' j : ministration school won the title in the 125- iSMsamy ; pound class. Benowitz, an Engineering school, copped the 135-pound title. In one of the best fights of the entire affair Watson of the Engineers defeated Crane in the 145-pound division. In the feature bout of the evening Perkins of the B. B. A. school out-pointed Reichert in a thrilling bout. Estes an Academ, and Reynolds of the Engineers won titles in the 175-pound and heavy- weight divisions by forfeit. In the windup event of the Winter Term, Nemir won the all-university handball champion- ship by besting Barclay. The matches were fast and furious and Nemir won his laurels only by brilliant play. Thus ended the Winter Term of 1927 in intramural athletic activities. The coming Spring Term promises many interesting events. The baseball championship is to be decided both in the fraternity circles and the departmental divisions, as well as the University Champions. The intramural track meet, between the different departments of the school as well as between the fraternities, always proves interesting. Then, perhaps, the most exciting of all the events is the aquatic meet held in both divisions. As an important phase of university activities, the intramural department of athletics is rapidly forging into prominence. In addition to affording a means of athletic participation to the great mass of students who otherwise would never compete, the intramural system offers a Nemir, Handball Champion Cross-Counlry Wiiniers Page 138 i INTRAMURAL SPORTS— Continued means of discovering valuable athletic material and talent which would otherwise remain un- known and lost to the Varsity teams of the school. More than a few stars have been brought into the sport limelight as a result of their showing in intramural sports. This has become a new and important source of reinforcement for Varsity squads. Intramural athletics in ol e more students than any other activity on the campus. Above all, the intramural system gives those benefits of clean competition to one and all, promoting sportsmanship in the highest degree. Few activities in the University have seen such a rapid development as has this one. From a very small beginning it has grown and de ' eloped into the largest and most profitable activity in school. Along with its great develop- ment has developed a growing interest in the games and contests in all three divisions. While the sports themselves have not always been of big league caliber, they have never ceased to be interesting. The pleasures and benefits derived from intramural athletics cannot be over- estimated. Persons who never would take any interest or part in any athletic contest have been drawn into active participation through this department. With the token of clean play and high sportsmanship and working under a well-organized system, intramural athletics will con- tinue to grow and develop along with the school. We predict an even greater development for this departrnent in the future, if such be possible. Fitch, Tennis Champion Sigma Nu Basket Ball Team Page 2i9 Woman ' ' s Athletic Association WITH the highest ideals of sportsmanship as its ultimate goal, the Woman ' s Athletic Association has grown each year until it is now recognized as one of the most vital, active and influential organizations on the campus. In order to attain this goal and to advance physical efficiency, scholarship, good fellowship and good health, competing teams and clubs are sponsored each year. Rigid requirements for first, second and third teams and for club membership are definitely stated in the constitution and no exceptions are made. A certain scholastic average and strict observance of .training rules are also demanded of those trying to make the teams. Archery, baseball, basket ball, dancing, gym team, hockey, tennis, swimmi ng and volley ball are all sponsored by this organization, and inter-class tournaments are conducted at various times during the year. Regular clubs, each with a complete list of officers and each receiving recognition for work done, include the Texas Outing Club, the Rifle Club, Camp Te-WAA-Hiss, Orchesus, Racquet Club, Robin Hood Club, Red Cross Life Saving Club and Turtle Club. All credit is given through a point system. When the first 100 points have been made, a W. A. A. pin is awarded the member. For 700 points a numeral is given. The highest recognition is given to seniors only who have been accredited with 1,400 points. This award is the golden " T " pin. The full significance of this final honor is ex- pressed in the words of Laura Thompson, which are sung to the tune of " The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi: " The " T " girl is the grandest girl Of all the girls I know — Her paddles and swims, Heated games in the gym, Account for her freckled nose.

The repre- sentatives of these seven states then met and formed the Confederate States of America, on February 4, 1861. In the Civil War which fol- lowed, many Texans volunteered in the Con- federate Army and died for states rights. For- tunately, Texas was outside of the immediate wai zone, and the state was undisturbed a great deal of the time. The Federal force was soon driven out of Texas, and the state was attacked only a few times during the four years of the struggle. The most important battle fought on Texas soil was that fought at Sabine Pass by a small force under Dick Dowling. The Federals hoped that by gaining control of Texas they could cut off a great deal of the grain supply of the Con- federacy, and hasten the end of the war. Con- sequently, a force was sent by sea to attack Texas. A band of Texans made a gallant stand at Sabine Pass under Colonel Dick Dowling, and, from be- hind a rampart of cotton bales, repulsed the Federal steamboats which had come up the river. This battle ended the scheme of the United States troops, and averted a crisis which might have given a death blow to the Confederacy. At the close of the Civil War in 1865, Texas again became one of the United States of America.

THE formation of a state university and the encouragement of education tnereby haa been a dream of tne Texans since tne first days of the Repubhc of Texas. In 1839 the Congress of Texas donated fifty leagues of land to be used for the establishment of two colleges — one in eastern, and the other in w-estern Texas. The scheme was not advanced until 1854, however, when the legisla- ture appropriated more land for the university. By an act of 1858, one hundred thousand dollars worth of lands received m the Compromise of 1850 w ere set asidfe for the University of Texas, which w as to be established as soon as possible. The excitement of the Civil War delayed the estab- lishment of the university again. The acts of 1866 and the convention of 1875 provided that the University of Texas should be organized and put m operation m a city to be designated by the vote of the people of the state. The city of Austin was decided upon as the proper place for the institution, and plans were rapidly pushed to completion. The cornerstone of the Main Building was laid on November 15, 1881, but the formal opening did not occur until Novem- ber 15, 1883. Thus w as begun the operation of one of the greatest universities of the South,. and the dream of the founders of Texas ■was achieved.

The purpose of the organiza- tion is to foster the scientific and social achievement of its members, to extend the relations of friendship and assistance between the universities of the United States and Canada, and the upbuilding of a national college society devoted to the interests of the pure and applied science of geology, mining, and metallurgy. Chapters now exist at nineteen of the largest universities of the country. The Zeta chapter was established at the University of Texas, April 30, 1920. Members are chosen from the advanced students of geology, both scholarship and personality being requisites. Honorary membership ma - be conferred upon successful practicing geologists in the state of Texas. Fourteen students of geology and most of the faculty of the department compose the chapter at present. Activities of the fraternity include bi-monthly meetings at which scientific papers are presented for discussion, and topics of professional interest are brought to the attention of the members.

Only Juniors and Seniors in Journalism are eligible for membership, and must regard journal- ism as their life work. The fraternity sets forth as its purpose the promo- tion of journalism among women, the development of individual capacity, and the rendering of service to humanity through the press. The fraternity is built around an ideal of truth.

Skelton Theodore Weiss Amelia Williams W. N. Wolfson Ada K. Wynne THE Alpha Chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha was organized at the University of Texas in 1919. It was the purpose of the founders to establish an honorary organization that would further the teaching and studying of political science and create an " esprit de corps " among the faculty and advance students in that field. Since the organization of the fraternity at this University, a number of other chapters have been added. Among these might be named: Oklahoma, Kansas, Kentucky, California (Southern Branch), Leland Stanford, and Southern Metho- dist University. Quite a bit of interest has been aroused in Pi Sigma Alpha, and it is entirely probable that several other leading Universities will install chapters in the near future.

Zuch ALPHA PHI EPSILON was organized at the University of Texas in 1921 and has a twofold object, which is the recognition of individual accomplishments, together with the promotion of a friendly spirit among the literary organizations on the campus. Alpha Phi Epsilon has encouraged and sponsored the All-Literary Society open house, more and better literary training for freshmen, intercollegiate debating for girls, and appropriate entertainment for visiting intercollegiate de- baters. Members of the fraternity are elected from nine different literary organi- zations in the University upon a basis of a year or more of work deserving of recog- nition.

Parlin Page } b DOMMITOR -I Scottish T{ite " Dormitory SCOTTISH RITE DORMITORY, the home of the " daughters of Masons, " is located three blocks north of the University. It was built in 1922 as the first project of the Scottish Rite Educational Association of Texas. The plan was conceived by Mr. Sam P. Cochran of Dallas, who is president of the organization. The first Vice-President, Judge J. W. McClendon of Austin, has charge of the regular business of the dormitor ' . It is through the big- hearted and unselfish service of Masons all over Texas that this spacious mansion has been furnished for University women. The three hundred and twenty girls who stay at S.R.D. are guided and aided by Mrs. J. Ed. Kaufman and her worthy assistants. This year, however, a new form of organization was started. A Co-operative Home Council was established to assist the chaperons in conducting dormiton, ' affairs. The Council is composed of ten representatives elected by the girls from the various wings. It has done some good this year although most of the work has been experimental. Page i5S Scottish ' Tijie Dormitory SCOTTISH RITE DORMITORY is glad to honor the prominent girls who live there. The girls who appear on this page are: Vivian Richardson, President of the Blue Pencil Club; Mar - Walker, President of Y. W. C. A.; Jessie Church, President of Women ' s Assembly; Dorothy Holmes, President of Cap and Gown, and of Ashbel Literary Society; Fay Sappington, President of Turtle Club; Tillie Frances Young, Chairman of Scottish Rite Co-operative Home Council, and Helen Hamilton, University delegate chosen by the Women ' s Federated Clubs to attend International Conference in Geneva, Switzerland.

Funds for the building were appropriated by the Board of Missions of the Southern Methodist Church and the Missionary societies of Texas. The site was a gift of the citizens of Austin. Although the ownership is in the hands of the Board of Missions of a particular denomination, residential requirements do not include affiliation with the Methodist Church, and as a result various creeds are found among the groups of girls. This year members from at least eight churches make their home at Kirby Hall. Every modern convenience is provided for the hundred girls who are able to se- cure a room each year before the capacity limit is reached. The building is a modern brick structure of three stories and a basement. It is steam heated and fireproof. On the first floor are the small parlors, a large social room, a library, two rooms for the direc- tor and business manager, and offices. The two upper floors are used for the accommo- dation of the students. Mrs. T. A. Brown, who first concei ' ed the idea of a Methodist dormiton,- at the University of Texas, is chairman of the local Board of Control. Other members who assist in the supervision are: Mrs. W. F. Gohlike, Mrs. M. Jones, Miss Lila Casis, and Mrs. N. A. Stedman.

Mrs. Carothers has held this position continuously since that date with three business managers m succession. Misses Bertha Moore, Louise Shelley, and Anna Hendricks, the present holder of the position. In 1918, three annexes were added where fifty students are in residence. The building is con- veniently located on the campus near libraries, class rooms, and laboratories. There are four stories and a basement with showers, swimming pool, and aesthetic dancing floor. The first floor has spacious living and dining rooms, two reception halls, kitchen and business office. The three upper floors contain the Administration room for the director, 63 single and 11 double rooms. Each vear has yielded a creditable quota of honor roll students and Phi Beta Kappas. All State and National holidays are celebrated, the outstanding social events of the year being the initiation ceremony and entertainment of each year ' s new students. Thanksgiving reunion festivities, and the formal Valentine banquet and dance. The official Bulletin board contains all Ex-Women ' s Building girls ' notable achievements, wedding invitations, and notices and pictures of the W. B. grandchildren. Nine standard maga- zines and two daily papers are furnished by the management for the occupants. Since the building was opened the object of the management has been to create an ideal home combining comfort, safety and reinement. That this has been accomplished is evidenced in the spirit of the house, the absence of friction, and the democratic friendliness of the occu- pants. Of the long line of more than two thousand students who have made up the personnel ot the building, women are filling successfully positions as journalists, over-seas workers, mission- aries in China, Japan, Hawaii, Russia, Africa, and South America, members of National Board of the Y. W. C. A., artists, authors, editors, physicians in charge of women ' s and children ' s hospitals. University physicians, managers of University cafeterias, censors of moving pictures, managers of play grounds, national Girl Scout organizers, judges, one state president Texas Federation Women ' s Clubs, one professional aesthetic dancer, and the present first lady of Texas presiding at the governoi ' s mansion.

NEWMAN HALL is a home for Catholic and non-Catholic girls attending the Uni- versity. It was early recognized that there was a need for a place where young women could feel the influence of Christian training; the late Mother Pauline, at that time Superior of the Dominican Sisters, and Father J. Elliott Ross, then Chaplain of the Newman Club, early in 1917 began to concentrate their efforts on the erecting of a dormitory. With the hearty co-operation of Bishop Gallagher of Galveston, the work went forward, and Newman Hall was ready on June 10, 1918. Newman Hall is located right across the campus on Guadalupe and 21st Streets. It is a modern adaptation of the old Mission style of architecture, and e erything ab out it is designed for the comfort and convenience of the residents. This year, a dinner was given on the birthday of John Henr - Cardinal Newman, foi whom the dormitory- was named. It is planned to make Newman ' s birthday a home- coming day for Newman Hall girls and to have a banquet on that day each year. The dormitorv is under the direction of the Dominican Sisters.

H. Kinsolving of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Texas. Bishop Kinsolving first conceived the idea of a dormitory for girls on the University campus, and the money for the building he obtained from a legacy, from subscriptions, and from his own fortune. Mrs. Julia Leiswitz was in charge for twenty-five years and following her came Mrs. P. H. Raymond, who served as hostess until Mrs. Catherine Rives King, present house-mother, took charge last year. Under Mrs. King ' s guidance the dormitory has been filled to capacity and is one of the most popular places on the campus. The building was named for Mrs. Grace Kinsolving, wife of the Bishop, who took great interest in the hall and in the girls throughout her lifetime. I ' I! ' !

Littlefield Memorial Dormitory is the gift to the University of Texas of Major George W. Littlefield, in honor of his wife, Mrs. Alice P. Littlefield. It was his wish that the building be used to house freshmen girls. To the §300,000 left b ' Major Littlefield for this purpose, the University regents added a sum from the building fund sufficient to cover the cost, which amounts to $334,178, exclusive of equipment and furnishings. The dormitor ' is the first building to be erected on the six blocks north of the present campus which, it is expected, will constitute the Woman ' s Campus. It is located on Whitis Avenue and Twenty-sixth Street, facing Twenty-fifth Street. The dormitory is of Spanish design and the furnishings are to be in keeping with the style of architecture. There are ample social and reception rooms, dining-room, business offices, directors ' and manager ' s rooms, and seventy-five bed-and-sitting rooms to ac- commodate one hundred and fifty young women. The opening of this dormitory makes it possible to earn, ' out a policy recently in- corporated by the University Faculty and the lTni -ersity Regents into the following regulation: " All freshmen women, except those li ' ing with their parents, are required to live in one of the dormitories listed in the catalogue, unless given special permission by the Dean of Women to We elsewhere. " The dormitory will be in charge of a staff adequate to meet the needs of the girls. The staff includes a social director, a business director and dietitian, and an assistant social director. Miss Martha C. Lockett is the social director. The dormitory will be ready for occupancy one day before Freshman convocation, which is called this year for Monday, September 19.

W ' allace I ' age 370 •J Cen-s glee Qlub THE Men ' s Glee flub was organized in 1892 by a small group of serenaders. From that time, it has grown to where it is a well organized musical club, singing under professional direction and advertising the l niversity throughout the state. It has gained for itself the title of the " Greatest Male Chorus in the Southwest. " Its membership was chosen this year from a list of one hundred fitty aspirants, thirty men sur iving the eliminations. In the spring of 1926 the club made a six-day tour of East Texas, singing in Beaumont, Orange, Lufkin, and other cities in that vicinity. In the winter of 1927 the Club made a trip to Llano, Lampasas and San Saba; and a week later south to Victoria, Cuero, Yoakum and Luling. As the Cactus goes to press the Club is arranging for its trip to North Texas. The Club was abK ' directed by Mr. Oscar J. Fox, Texas cowboy song-writer, whose songs were the most popular selections on the program this season. The Club received an invitation to present Mr. Fox ' s cowboy songs in Chicago at the Convention of Federated Music Clubs. The Club has always upheld its standard of good music so that the program is such that it would appeal to the highest musical critic, and to those who prefer the lighter numbers. OFFICERS Oscar J.

It has thrived on the campus since its founding five years ago, acting as a nucleus for the de elopment of a fight spirit among the student body. Trips were made to Waco and Dallas for the Baylor and Vanderbilt games respecti eK-. The men attended games played in Austin and pep rallies, and aided in arousing patriotic spirit. The organization holds bi-weekly luncheons at which plans are worked out and entertain- ment had. The Texas Cowboys ' slogan of " Give the best that you have to Varsity, and the best will come back to you, " exemplifies the spirit of the outfit. OFFICERS Denny Dallas Claude Voyles .

The membership is limited to fifty, and depends on the singers ' voice qualities and their ability to adapt themselves to work in a choral group. Rehearsals are held twice each week, under the direction of Mr. Oscar J. Fox, of San An- tonio, Texas, well-known composer of the famous Cowboy songs. It is largely to his supervision for the past two years that the club owes its present success. The accompanist is Mr. Victor Powell, Austin ' s talented young musician. The schedule for the current session has not been fully completed yet, but the Club is con- sidering plans for out-of-town trips. A local program will be presented late in the spring. One of the very charming social affairs enjoyed by the Club this year was the entertainment held in its honor by Miss Edith Kelly, of the University faculty. Miss Kelly is the Club ' s super- visor.

J|. women ' s voices. Its organizatiort grew out cff a need for a larger organizaticm- in which there was • no limited number of members as in the Glee Clubs. The only limitations are the voice tryouts held by the Director at the beginning of each year. This year three public performances were given. The first program consisted of a cantata: " Song of Thanksgiving, " by Maunder. The second program, another cantata: " Penitence, Pardon and Peace, " by Maunder was given during Lent. The last performance was a mixed program including " Out Where The West Begins, " and Oscar Fox ' s own song " Rounded Up In Glory. " One program was braodcasted over K. U.

' ican Institute of Electrical Engineers u. THE American Institute of Electrical Engineers is the national organization representing the electrical engineering profession and was founded in 1884. The objects of the Institute are the advancement of the theory and practice of the electrical engineering profession and of the allied arts and sciences, the maintenance of a high professional standing among its members, and the development of the individual engineer. Through its activities the Institute has been, and is now, an important factor in the advancement of the interests of its members, and of the entire engineering profession. Student branches are local electrical engineering societies organized by students in technical schools and colleges recognized by the Institute, and ha e for their pur- pose the provision of opportunities enabling the student to gain a proper perspective of engineering work through acquaintance with the personnel and problems of those engaged in the work.

Ramshorn is the only professional engineering society on the campus. The object of the organization is to stimulate and encourage advancement and co- operation in the engineering profession by providing, not the technical needs of the student, but the direct individual advancement through participation in the activities of the society. It is the belief of the organization that it is the engineer ' s moral obligations as well as per- sonal interest to strive for the advancement of the standards and the standing of the profession; that collective effort is most eflfective in achieving the desired results; for this reason we are banded together in the American Association of Engineers in order to unite efforts toward the accomplishment of a common purpose. Ramshorn endeavors to fulfill this aim of the organization by giving the engineering student member the proper training in literary acti ' ities in order that he may enter the profession equipped to live an active and ser iceable public life.

The purposes of the organiza- tion are to create closer co-operation, co-ordination, and fellowship between the faculty and students, and to acquaint Freshman girls with the standards and traditions of the institution. The organization sponsors the Freshman class in particular and takes an active part in all worthy undertakings among University women. Traditional afTairs include the Annual Cap and Gown Banquet in November, the Faculty reception in February, the Council for Cap and Gown in April, and Senior week in May. The membership comprises about 300 June and August Seniors. OFFICERS Dorothy Holmes . . .

Merr;bership in the group is elective and honorary. To the iminitiated its jjurpose seems formidable, but in reality its meetings are delightfully human. Besides studying literature and art, the Club has utilized Latin and Oeek tradition on every possible occasion. Among other things its members have paraphrased college songs and modern lyrics into their ancient " originals, " entertained with a party on Cicero ' s birthday, snd celebrated ' alentine ' s DaN- with a reception honoring Venus and her son, Cupid.

It seeks to broaden its members with the knowledge of the practical side of business, and at the same time it tends to stimulate closer union by social means. Membership in Alpha Kappa Psi is based on character, personality, prospective business ability, and individual scholastic records. The keynote of the organization is service, both to its members and school. Banquets are held monthly, at which successful business men address the members of the fraternity on their personal experiences in their respective business fields. These banquets have been er - successful and the talks have pro •en most interesting and beneficial to the members. OFFICERS W. Deryl Hull President Robert B. Templeton Vice-President Fred P.

The purpose of the Club is to form a connection between the students in Business Administration and the actual business world. This is largely accomplished b " the liringing of successful business men to the l ' ni ersit - to address the Club on such things as will be beneficial to the department as a whole. The Club meetings this year have been ery irregular, but every announcement has brought a large and enthusiastic response. It is generally belie -ed that the Commerce Club is one of the most practical clubs on the Campus, a Club that is rapidly growing in size and greatly aiding the entire department of which it is a most important factor.

In order that those within the Club might gain the maximum of practice and development in public speaking, the number of men who might at one time be listed on the roll of the Club as active members was limited to forty. An aspirant to membership in the Speakers ' Club must be presented by some member of the Club, and upon presentation must deliver a three-minute speech before the house. On the basis of this speech the applicant is either elected or rejected, three votes against him being enough to disqualify him. It is one of the traditions of the Club that one banquet should be given each term. For the first two terms ladies may be invited as guests, but the banquet for the spring term is strictly a stag affair, and at this banquet prizes are awarded for the best after-dinner speech. In co-operation with the department of public speaking, it is the aim of this Club to train its men to think clearly on t heir feet. ' If. OFFICERS Fall Term Winter Term President .

In the fall term of 1925, the club began its work with the definite aim of intercollegiate de- bates for women, and it has been steadily pressing toward that goal, coming nearer to it each year. To this end, every program of the club presents a debate between its members as a feature. An acceptable five-minute extempore speech is expected from each applicant for membership, an audience vote of the active membership being taken. The membership is limited to thirty, and there are twenty-two on the roll this year. Each term the club holds a luncheon or banquet, the winter-term affair consisting of a birth- day dinner on the e ening of February 11.

Kach Saturda - e cning in the traditional Rusk Hall, the society hears a program including extemporaneous talks, discussions on topics of general interest, and debates on current economic, political, and educational questions. The Rusk has been singularly fortunate in the numerous contests sponsored by the Uni- versit - and by patrons at large. Of the twelve men comprising the Varsity Debate Squad, the following five are Rusk men: Percy P oreman, Allen Crowlev, Leslie Byrd, Edwin Davis, and Warren Collins, the first two named ' placing first and second, for prizes of One Hundred Dollars and Seventv-five Dollars, respectively. Leslie Byrd, Allen Crowley, and Percy Foreman were selected to a squad of six men for the annual debate with Oxford l niversity. In the Inter-Socict - Debates for the Fall Term, the teams composed of Edwin Davis, Troy Hickman, Leslie Byrd, and Allen Crowley won four debates and lost two, falling short of first place in the contest bv two of the eighteen judges ' decisions. The Rusk won both the Inter-Society Debates and the Freshman Inter-Society Debates for the Spring Term of 1926. The following have been elected to represent the society in contests to be held after this writing: The Wroe Oratorical Contest: Denver Perkins, M. W. Fleetwood, R. A. Horn, and Jack Neal.

At such time, we might say that Cowan, Olson, Rotsch, Rousse, Ryan and Stubbeman are the six Athenaeum members of the twelve University debaters; that Olson, tied for first, and Stubbeman placed third in the Wroe Oratorical Contest; and that McDonald and Stubbeman won second and third in the University Extempore Contest.

The Hogg team composed of Vernon Lemens, Jim Hulse, James Sherer and Dyt Johnson won the Inter-society Debate Championship. Dyt Johnson won the Carl Mater gold watch for the best inter-society debater. The Hogg has the distinction of being the only forensic club in the South that edits a paper devoted to the activities of the Club. Another distinctive feature of the Hogg is the Pigg Club which gives freshmen practice in oratory, declamation and debate. The incentive to these nobler achievements can be attributed to the inspiration which emanated from the Hogg Auxiliary, which was organized this year as the feminine supplement of the Hogg Club. In the year of its conception, laurels were added to the Club when Betty Fleming ,won the I ' niversity Championship in girls ' debate.

It is one of a large number of similar college and university organizations under the direction of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The purpose of the Club is to foster interest in current international problems and to create a sympathetic attitude toward other nations. The Club is limited t6 a membership of thirty and is now composed entirely of senior and graduate students chosen for their interest in international afTairs and for their exception al scholarship in the political and social sciences. At a bi-monthly meeting of the Club, talks are made by University professors, members of the Club, or prominent authorities on international questions. A summary of recent international events is given at each meeting and is followed b - a general discussion in which all members participate. The Club members have access to a library donated by the Carnegie Endowment, which aids them in the study of problems of world peace.

Meetings are held every first and third Friday of each month. Membership is limited to Czech-speaking people and their friends. The Club has been instrumental in securing a course in the study of the language, history, and culture of the Czechoslovak and other Sla ' nations. It is the hope of this club to aid in securing a larger representation of the Czech people at the University of Texas, for their own good and for the good of Texas, and such interest has been aroused that the S. P. J. S. T. Lodge is backing it in its undertakings. OFFICERS Pall Winter Spring President Arthur Fojt George Kacir Rom. n Bartosh Vice-President P. L. Mikesk.

Regular meetings are held the last Saturda ' evening of each month at the home of some member. Membership is not limited. Instructors, ex-students, and those who are interested in the study of Scandinavian are also on the active membership list.

The Association has for its purpose the leading of students to faith in God through Jesus and their affiliation with the Christian Church. It endeavors to promote their growth in faith and to influence them to devote themselves in united effort with all Christians in making the will of Christ effective in human society. 1926-27 James W.

The chief aims of the organization are to acquaint the members with Parliamentary Procedure, to develop the argumentative art, to create a facility for extemporaneous speaking, and to learn as much about court-room practice as is possible. Bi-monthly meetings are held in which these literary events are executed. There is also, in this organization, a feeling of interest among the members and all students who are anticipating the study of law. The emphasis on the social life is exceeded only hy that of the forensic phase. The association has always taken an active part in all athletic sports. The Pre-Law Association is correlated with Phi Phi Phi, Texas Pre-Legal Honorary Fra- ternity. Members are elected upon the basis of scholarship, interest in Pre-Law work, and promise of success in the profession. The emblem is an open book of white enamel bearing a hand and an anchor of gold, resting upon two crossed lances between the heads of which extends a scroll bearing the letters of Phi Phi Phi. The officers of the Phi Phi Phi are: Dyt Moody Johnson, President; Arthur Klein, Vice- President; Eugene H. PuUen, Secretary; Lynwood Boyett, Treasurer; Emmette S. Redford, Ser- geant-at-Arms, and Hugo F. Heiman, Reporter. The spring term officers of the Pre-Law Associa- tion are: Frank Kerbow, President; Lucile Gatlin, Vice-President; Elizabeth Williams, Secre- tary; D t Johnson, Treasurer; Margaret Ward, Custodian; Arthur Klein, Sergeant-at-Arms, and Lynwood Boyett, Reporter.

THK Pre-iMedical Society was organized in 1914 with the ultimate aim to stimulate in the pre-medical student a more profound interest in the field of medicine. Frequently the society is faNored with appropriate addresses given by local doctors and by faculty members. The members gain much helpful knowledge concerning their future scientific profession through visits to the various medical institutions. The worth of such a society is attested by the faculty and by those members of the Medical School who were once active in the society. Developing students as it does, the Pre-Medical Society can look forward to an exceedingly bright future. OFFICERS T. Arnold Sanderson Regin. Re ago r . Catherine Clark .

Conscious of our universal degradation, they have rushed in like Samson seeking to sla ' with the jawbone of an ass. In attempting to rob the devil of his richest harvest, they have impregnated social and scholastic affairs with the nauseous odor of righteousness. In the spirit of kindly toler- ance, they have provided a healthy atmosphere conducive to study and psalm-singing. By systems of prayer, solicitation, vigils and exorcisms they have made scholastic years enjoyable. Arrayed in the panoply of Fanaticism, girt with the belt of Puritanism, clothed in the armor of Ignorance, and protected by the shield of Hypocrisy, holding the Bible in one hand and the whip-lash in the other, they have harassed a derisive student bod -. Aided by Honor Councils, Discipline Committees, paid spies and other campus ermin, they ha ' e tried to convert the Forty Acres into a miniature Hell Hole . All this they have done, but in vain. Their oraton, has been futile as, filled with pious ideas, they have fled from intelligent contemplation of their problems. As failures, they have no place in these pages.

Page 412 Topics of the Tear IT is but appropriate to start the history of the year, famous or infamous as it may be, with an account of the things that students are interested in to the utter disregard of such boring topics as are usually classified under the heading scholastic activities. In order to avoid further complication, we may as well start at the knel of the student mind and den - the stor - about the negro and the F " ee Gees. Rumor hath it that he was shot — but we know that this is erroneous, as anyone can be a Phi Gam. It is obvious to even the most obtuse that they received only ANOTHER bump. The latest wrinkle in fraternity legis- lation has appeared in the form of house rules now being enforced at the Kappa Sig House. Nobody paid any attention to them, but it irked some of the brothers to think that they had to be bossed by rules whether they were enforced or not. They thereupon sought to have the regulations suspended for the day following Law exams, and brought a petition to that effect to Joe Estes, the chapter prexy, an obscure student of the law . Estes refused to entertain the suggestion, and the rules remained in force. In order to show his disgust of such a decision, one Alvis In- significant Armstrong took a big drink of corn and cussed Brother Estes out. Some people think Brother Armstrong is always drunk, but the truth of the matter is that he only acts that way. His only object is to be collegiate. Destruction of University property by one, Marvin Brown, a little known and thoroughl} ' detested member of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity (?) brought down upon his head a timely bawling out by a member of the faculty. We feel that said faculty mem- ber acted injudiciously, for, although the campus lights are valuable to the Uni ersity in a financial way, the moral benefits deri ' ed from their destruction will amply repay their loss. Brown will now be able to shroud his nefarious operations beneath a mantle of darkness and the sense of moral virtue some- times displayed by University students will be untainted by his malignant influence. We ha e been gi en to understand that his full name is Marvin Loves Brown. It seems that the goddess of Justice was deaf and dumb as well as blind when she allowed the fraternity foimded by the Im- mortal Swede and patiently awaiting his re- turn, to eject, oust and expel from its enduring bounds of brotherhood the person of one Warren Hastings. The Chi Phis are most inconsistent. They pledge a man on account of his ability to drink; they initiate him on account of his inabilit y to stay sober; and then bounce him out for the same reasons. There seems to have been something of professional jealousy mixed up in this. Warren must have gotten too god. Some people are lucki,- and get all the breaks, but poor old Stofer is neither. He had money in the bank and it went busted, and he had made such violently efficient love to Pat O ' Brien that she had become accustomed to riding in his alleged automobile, and then she left school. The school won, but John lost. After several romances with such campus characters as Mary Blair and Marion Bone, he finally entrusted his heart to the keeping of Betsy Ross. In the quaintly charming manner of a phlegmatic Dutchman, Littlejohn made the remark that little Betsy had the intelligence of a glass of water and the appeal of an artificial lake. We submit that he is in error she has less. More power to her. A year away from school failed to cut the brass from the shining head of little Fonsy Ragland. Rubbing elbows with the business world failed to convince him that he was just a small pig in a big pen. There is one thing that our acrid little Fonsy has in abundant quantity and that is NERVE. He was asinine enough to ask Eddie Gossett to name him on the Honor Council, and Eddie was man enough to re- fuse. Shortly after the failure of an alleged bank, the ATOs stalled their creditors off with the story of having lost six hundred bucks in the crash. All who believe that Page 41 } Topics of the Tear {Continued from Page Ji.13) they ever had, or ever will have, more than three dollars at one and the same time, will show their belief by jumping out the window. Their creditors don ' t believe it either. It is understood that the brothers of Kappa Stigma undertake to explain the fainting of Johnnie I atton in their house as having been superinduced ' by the apparition of a monkey steahng down the stairs. Taking such an explanation at its best, we are forced to the conclusion that the monkey in question was either Sam Fitch dressed in the voguish fashion of dear old Hahvahd, or that it was any other brother undressed in the manner prescribed by dear old nature. By the way, the only real man ever in the Kappa Slug House for a meal was the chorine from George White ' s Scandals. She proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that Brother Von Rosenberg was the moron who saw the show through a six-foot tele- scope. The ATOs, Dekes, and SAEs are now in the class of clubs who have adopted the slogan " Buy homes and let the Alumni worry. " It is rumored that Kappa Sigma and Kappa Alpha Theta are about to join their ranks. The advantage of the scheme is that a year ' s use by any one of these groups will so ruin a house and the reputation of its neighborhood that the creditors will be unable to realize anything from the fore- closure of their liens. The SAE club has to date been unsuccess- ful in their attempts to burn down the eye-sore hut in front of their palatial (?) residence. We do not understand these failures; it appears to us that a club boasting such warm men as Hull and Brelsford should have no trouble. {Continued on Page Itl6) 1 PL«.e ;e.3 y , r 3 -,----■: - -. ------------.

Page 41 i Topics of the Tear (Continued from Page 4 ' 4) It is rumored that the club has gi -en up the idea of ever pacing for its house, and is now renting. We imagine that this is upon the theory that a landlord is better than a re- ceiver. In spite of Coopwood, Sublett, Thornton, and little Jones, the Thetas are still snoring in the mire of social obscurity (much better girls than these have tried and failed). The Thetas are nationally stronger than any sorority on the campus, and locally they are plenty strong; so strong, in fact, that they are offensive. All Sue Heatley ' s good influence is successfully counteracted by the efforts of her thoroughly detested sister to dispense Justice among co-eds. The first and only social call made by our beloved Dean of Women upon the sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha was celebrated by a public wrestling match between " Strangler " Wood- head and FluftV " Pint " Webb. Nothing Doris Clark could do would excite a great deal of comment, but the way she late-dates Eli Miller is scandalous, es- pecially since she gave her dates to men of the caliber of Allen and Eilers. Stofer found himself in his usual jam before the Phi Delta dance. He had two dates, one with Willie B. Lincoln, and the other with Pat O ' Brien. He managed to ditch Willie B., and went to the party as the escort of the charming Pat; Willie B. got to go to the dance with a man. We give a rising vote of thanks to C. K. Carruthers for his effective effacing of the features of little Al at the Vanderbilt game. Ox Higgins showed rare judgment when he picked on Sis Johns for a stolen kiss at the Sigma Nu dance. We don ' t understand, how- ever, why he was forced to steal it. PeeWee Langford pulled the prize de- ception of the year when he spent the night {Continued on Page Ji.18) r f r 1 L S Fir 4 Mwrn- m i B 1 P ' M v H H m 1 WT .

Evidently he was very much at home in jail. When Spider Connor was interested in the little Palm girl from El Paso, he often turned the lights out in the parlor. This, he said, kept the crickets away. Evidently his ruse was successful. The biggest boost the Pi Phis got was their overlooking their chance to pledge Ruby Robinson. To hear her tell it, she made monkeys out of the whole Phi Delt chapter, led the Pi Phis to believe that she was sewed up, and then bumped them for the Kappas (thus giving the Kappas another black eye). We nominate Sanford Gibbs for the posi- tion of All-University Social Flash. His plat- form — 1. Better cars with light less back seats. 2. Ice packs for Louise Poe. 3.

SAE Club — In a splendid effort to keep pace with their sudden rise from their obscurity of a few years ago to their present high, social standing, the SAEs gave their annual brawl at the Austin Hotel. They employed several of the best known advertising men of the country to decorate. E eryone knew it was a Sig Alph dance, as the club ' s insignia was stamped on everything, even to the cigarettes.

Page 422 Li - ] x,£ - ; ' ■ S i ■ L ' j--r-y ' ' - LIST OF VARSITY ' S SELECT THIRTY-ONE AT LAST APPEARS IN PRINT Julia Matthews Heads the List Norma Andrews Brings up Rear. THE social arbiter of the ITniversity has been discovered at last. He has accom- plished wonders the like of which has never heretofore been possible, and has cut down the social register from four hundred to a meager and most impossible thirty-one. The original of this imposing achievement was found in the back of a Spanish text-book, (indicated above) — it was only after much urging that the modest author was pre ailed upon to submit it for publication. We do not understand why the author chose to rank these oung ladies as he did, but presume that he did so on the basis of their external appearance of passionless purity. Be that as it may, the leader of the set seems to be indubitably- appointed by being men- tioned twice — Miss Elizabeth Ross, the one and only. And though this fact speaks rather disparagingly of Miss Julia Matthews, number one on the list, she may derive some con- solation by noting the space between her name and the next one. This probably in- dicates long and serious thought as to her successor. It may be of interest to little Couper that, although she was the sole possessor of the author ' s heart for some months, she attained her distinction only after he had made eleven failures. And the latest elect. Miss Kathryn Jay, may feel some sorrow because she entered school too late to be included in the selection. Although there are many mysteries in connection with this page, we think it prob- able that the reason for Miss Dorothy Ry- Pagl 42 ! LIST OF VARSITY ' 5 SELECT THIRTY-ONE AT LAST APPEARS IN PRINT— Continued lander ' s being placed in such social prominence lies in the fact that she bestowed a large and homely photograph of herself upon the distinguished author (it is understood that he asked her for it). For the benefit of those who have high social ambitions, and whose names have been omitted from the Register, we offer consola- tion — the author has promised a bigger and better unabridged edition, copiously annotated with individual ratings. This pres- ent list, however, will probably be of great help in determining sorority standings. It seems that the Pi Phis lead with fourteen; the Kappas come second with tweh ' e; the Zetas are a poor third with three; and that the Thetas, as usual, bring up the rear. Yet it must be borne in mind that this list was compiled at the very beginning of school, and as some of these girls have been miserable failures, the ratings can only be approxi- mated. It will be observed that the space be- neath the caption " your fellow " has been left blank, and knowing Gippy as we do, we suppose that he considered himself high with each of the thirty-one, or thought that he would be. Even from a most casual perusal of the foregoing we are sure that all will now under- stand why Little Gippy is so universally known as the 31 cal. Pain. ZETAS SHOW AFFECTIONS FOR MISS TERRELL In view of the special attention shown the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority by Miss Terrill is nothing but just that the Zetas should show her in some way the appreciation for her dilligent watching over them for the past two years in an effort to change the sorority from a late date organization to a social committee abiding body.

In 1912, a slight modification was seen with the inauguration of the push ball contest. This proved to be a er ' suitable way for the sophs and freshmen to meet in yearly combat, but as the type of the freshman began to degenerate each year more and more into the jelly bean level, this exhibition of class spirit proved to rough. Several of the boys objected to getting their hair mussed up, and to mingling with the common mob; so in 1926 the push ball contest was replaced by the sack holding contest. But with the coming of the freshman in the fall of 1926, the jelly bean element had developed to such an extent, in both the first and second year classes, that when the time came around for the time honored struggle, the leaders of the respecti e classes gathered together and de- cided that it would be much better to meet in a tickle toe contest, where the boys could display their masculine grace, and not engage such a mean old rough affair as had been car- ried on in years previous. At the same time that the leaders of the freshman and sophomore classes were making their plans for the great social event, the alimini throughout the state were meeting and discussing the class combats they had had the pleasure of taking i)art in while in the University of Texas. No doubt, the news of the replace ment of the push ball contest and sack grabbing contest by the dance was a shock to a majority of the Exes and they could not at first understand the whole affair, but if they could only attend one of the weekly dances held at the University and see the large number of freshmen that are present in comj arison with the number that attended when they were in school, they could very easily understand the radical change in Texas Independence Day activities. Not so many years ago it was the general custom that freshmen were to keep out of the limelight; not to take the lead in social functions; keep to themselves, and mind their own business. But, oh! how the times have changed! In view of the changes of the personnel of the freshmen class of the last few years, it would not be at all surprising that within the next year or so, the dance will pass away, to be replaced by a pink tea, gi ' en by the sophs in honor of the freshmen; and out in the garden, under the dreamy rays of the moon, will be seen a big, bold sophomore cooing in the ears of a modest shy fish.

After stumbling over twelve cases of beer in Piggy McKinney ' s room, found the entire chapter in the attic observatory looking des- perately through telescopes in the direction oftheS. R. D. ZETA TAU ALPHA— Gammg resort. Bridge, chess, cross-word puzzles, charades, and Blockhead taking the lead in a game of " coffee-pot. " DELTA ZETA— Too hot to enter. DELTA THETA P — Huffendick exhibit- ing his usual bad manners; Wren just back from New Braunsfels and all ready to make another social splurge. Hughston and Voyles quit knitting long enough to discuss clothes and women. SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON— Just in time to hear Hull and Brelsford telling the boys about their ascents to the top of the social world. Also heard a discussion of the men not in school who woulrl make good Sig Alphs, and who could be initiated during the sum- mer at the Rice Hotel. Suggs told of the coming political situation and tells how he caused defeat of Rippe ' and Simmons. Rippey wanted to know whet her he belonged to a fraternity or a sororit ' since Ros ' started to wheel a baby carriage and calling Brels- ford " Papa. " Editor ' s Note: Is there such a thing? DEKE — The boys rose and gravel} ' belched but as we were not members we could not return the salutation. Judging from the odor, the boys were all athletes. KAPPA ALPHA— Fought our way through a mob of bootleggers, bill collectors, and prohibition agents gathered around the front door but found the entrance locked as the boys were having another sub-rosa initiation and were telling Dutch how to co;iduct the cellar crew for the remainder of the year. PI KAPPA ALPHA— Weard the boys con- gratulating A. Douthit on his romance with Georgie Belle. The affair lasted well over two weeks. Return of Max Rogers an- nounced and the boys disperse to prepare the cellar so that Max ' s brewery can be com- fortably accommodated. KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA— A: t of ding - respectability pervaded the ancient stamp- ing ground for campus idols which have long since fallen. The house seems a memorial to the fallen glory of those who thought they were so good that the Pi Phis couldn ' t knock them off. How different were the days of Hardy Adams and Haughty Haughton! DELTA DELTA DELTA— House mother discussing with the sisters the problem of Bill Derby. The only stronghold of the good OLD FASHIONED late dates on the campus. Girls coming and going as they pleased with none to say them na -. Girls gaze in admiration at the Delta Chi windows and enjoy their gentle con •ersati()n. GAMMA PHI BETA— Eva Belle Hulin- Quaid, lecturing to the girls on the way to the Woman ' s Panhellenic to the advantage of the weaker sororities. She concluded her talk b - remarking on the benefits to be derived from the honor system. This sounded so much like hypocrisy that there was no need to prolong our stay. DELIA CHI — Ed Taegle after warning the boys about going around and telling every- one about his trouble with the honor council while he was a member of that useless organiz- ation, made the remark that H. L. Lewis was not drunk when he was pledged. H. L. jumped up and said that Ed was mistaken. Page 42S The ' T port of the .

They recite in unison how the - bumped Phi Sigma Delta. DELTA SIGMA PH J— Dick McMurray, famous politician, came in from date about 9:30 and told the boys that she had suddenly become ill as usual. He then talked about the lovely flowers he would send her if he weren ' t broke. Newt Waldron was given a cup for competing with Ray Little in the annual drinking contest. They both remi- nisce about a little three-couple party they threw at Hilsberg ' s. KAPPA DELTA— Entered in time to hear Carl Webb trying to get a subscription for the Stadium. Carl showed his usual tact by calling them Delta Zetas. He did not get the subscription. LAMBDA CHI ALPHA— Found them mak- ing their biennial attempt to make their shack look decently. Badders lectured on etiquette and Nation made a Shanghai gesture at him. Murray ' Moore, having been elected to the oftice of advertising manager, was instructed to fix the electric sign. SIGMA CHI — Vast number of people present — evidently all alumni back for the dance. The - looked as though they would come to anything that was free. Was told that the Sigma Chis used to get some real good ole boys, but this was hard to belie ' e after see- ing the slick Freshmen that they ac(|uire(l this year. As it was getting dark the entire chapter left for the Chi Omega house. CHI PHI — Saw a big washer pitching con- test in the front yard. On the inside the boys were playing pitch and drinking some alleged beer. Disgusting, though much better since Lobban quit the active chapter. Yes, Collier is still in school. Large picture of Warren on the wall. KAPPA 5 GAf .4— Proudly exhibited their pool table and nigger-billiards champions. Leuben offered us some Golden Glow. Al Armstrong announced that his collection of dance programs was increasing gradually. PHI KAPPA P57— Heard the boys discuss- ing the plans for taking the profits from the German and doing over the house so that it could stand another summer with Weinrich. When Weinrich was mentioned, we left in dis- gust. PHI MU — Romance and orange blossoms, soft music, lovely eyes, in honor of Bob Fly, most recent pledge. He was the only Phi Mu who wasn ' t chewing gum and smoking. He has no bad habits. PI BETA PHI— Mary Austin exhibiting her private key to Jamison ' s, and advising the sisters to fo llow her example. DELTA TAU DELTA— Potsy Allen came in just as I did; everyone looked relieved when he produced a certificate to the effect that he was free of parasitical infection. PHI DELTA THETA— Vi d Bill Ford, the boy with the character in his face, found gazing into the mirror of his newly-acquired dress- ing table. Life discussing the solution of many weighty problems, particularly the situation of the Mexican army. Wynne was still waiting for Carl Webb to return with his car which had been missing since early morning. {Continued on Page 438.) Page 429 While a student at the University of Texas during: the Fall term, I was much troubled by repeated in- vitations from the Phi Delt Nero to accompany him on late dates. Not desiring to be seen with a Phi Delt either before or after dark, I was forced to refuse him time after time. His asinine lispings gradually got the best of me, however, although I resisted until I reached a point of ner ous and physical exhaustion. Upon being retired from school on account of " ill health, " I at once began looking for something to build me up. I tried jour Buck-o and was most pleasantly surprised. I am now enjoying the best of health, and will accept dates from John Stofer or any one else. Yours for speed. Mary Blair I came down to the University in a cloud of smoke from Palestine of the Holy Land, and the Pappas took me into their lodge (or what have you); I was then supposed to bring all the good girls from my home town into the pond of Cowper Cowpa Cowper. I fell in lo e with a dashing young rake, Arthur Derby, sometimes known as " Tequilla Red; " a shady denizen of Nuevo Laredo. His amorous ad- vances were so insipid that I began to decline, and soon found myself upon the verge of a nervous break- down. (Red was enough to make anyone nervous.) And as all the girls who came down from Palestine went PeeFee, Half Moon, and Lambda Chi, I realized that I had better do something immediately. I ha e used your Buck-o since that time (Red inadvertently put me on to it), and have so recovered that I am now in the same class as Sissy Johns. Mary Lib Wettexcamp I had just completed a master stroke of political chicanery, and had exhausted my moral stamina. I felt that my political future was doomed and that my membership in the Y. M. C. A. would be forfeited on the grounds that I had moral turpitude. I was in the sloughs of mental despondenc}- when mx co-conspirator, the political genius of Zeta Tau Alpha, advised me to try a bottle of your Buck-o. Although rather skeptical as to its efficacy, I followed her sug- gestion and purchased some. I am now glad to say that my turpitude has entirely disappeared, and that I am once more my old buoyant self. JOYXE Cox Page 430 L£. r 11 1 yp -m %i , ' " ' ' . = emm - C - ' J y lb. I am about to go to England where I am to study under the Hberal stipend of a Roads Scholarship. I really don ' t see how I got it maybe it ' s because I have done so much darn road work here at the University; there being few nights on which my date (when 1 could get one) was not forced to hit the road for Austin. I felt the need for something to heighten my sex appeal and to put my name on every girl ' s lips just like rouge. I have tried media of all kinds, but nothing has done me any good except your Buck-o, which I discovered only a few days ago. It has helped me greatly even in this short time, and I be- lieve that it is the " stuff. " I am putting a dozen bottles of it in my trunk, and expect it to put me over with the English lassies. Bud Mather. NERVOUS— TIRED— IRRITABLE? While serving the University on the TEAM last year, I was subjected to consider- able strain, mental and otherwise, and soon found myself in a most deplorable condition. My masculine charms were totally ineffectual — I was unable to get the slighest spark in response to my superlative love-making. Try as I might, I could do no good. At last, I asked my best friend (we couldn ' t print her name) what my trouble was, and she told me that, among other things, I needed some of your Buck-o to make me tree-top daddy to Kappa Kappa Gamma and E. J. " Doc " Stewart. I drank nine bottles of this wonder- ful tonic and was almost kicked out of m - fraternity (if you can call it that). An how, I have one thing to be thankful for, and that is. Thank God, I ' m pure. Dick F ender. Because of the arduous duties entailed by my position as chief social man of the dear old Sig Alph Club, and because I was in great demand at the Delta Zeta House, I became very listless and dull. In fact, my condition was so bad that I was unable to stand even the most trivial social competition. I felt that I was losing my grip on the girl friends, (even before they got out of my car), and I knew that my club would sink into obscurity if my condition was not improved. Attributing my disorder to halitosis, I used all the current medicines, but without avail. I then sought advice from Gotch and he told me of his successes after using your invigorating Buck-o. I have taken six bottles, and think that I am now okey. Yours for social supremacy and better neck. Deryl Hill TRY BUCK-O— THE BODY BUILDER— BUCKS YOU UP Buck-o is a scientifically compounded tonic which contains many nutritive and health-giving elements, and none which have harmful effects.

Be that as it may, some- thing has made it -enerable, whether it be antitiuit - or its curious mixture of the worse elements of Greek, French, Roumanian, and Chinese architecture. That, however, mat- ters not, for the old hall has ceased to be an institution and has become merely a class room. Its history is romantic; its downfall pathetic. No longer will unweary freshmen be herded into its corridors and forced to take impromptu rides down its ancient fire es- capes. Xo longer is it the scene of political activity, nor a ha en of rest for the weary students. Its old corridors ha e ceased to ring with sonorous snores of bibulous bards and have begun to tinkle pleasantly with the lisping voices of professors of architecture. Fo r man - years the old pile was a land- mark on the campus and was thought to be a permanent nuisance by the association founded to protect it. Howe ■er, they were slipped a deep and dark cur e. The pitching consisted of the Board of Regents and President Splawn, while on the recei " ing end were the boys who lost their jobs and the ex-B Hallites who lost their happy home. The battle waxed hot, and in the due course of time a suit was filed by loyal members of the dormitory requesting that the Regents and the President be restrained from con- •erting B Hall into a class-room " ! building. A temporary injunction was granted, and it seemed as though the boys had won, but along in September the whole affair changed ; the matter was settled by arbitration. The B Hall supporters lost after all. B Hall was gone forever, to the utter disgust of some — to the delight of others. In the midst of this turmoil, during the darkest days of the strife, the B Hall boys grew very optimistic and we here present you with a life-size picture of the would-be expression of their optimism.

Bra e Basket calmly locked the car And turned to Little Bone, " You ' re mine, " he said, in accents clear, " There ' s none to take you home. " " Now, Basket, dear, you ' ole sweet thing, I simph ' can ' t be late; And you know good and well that I ha en ' t a late date. " " Ha! Ha! " , the villain. Basket, cried, " You ' ll not late date me, honey, After I took you to our picnic And you spent all my money. " " A littl e neck is all I want. And I need it pretty bad; So wipe your nose and lift your head. And don ' t look so turibal sad. " The ' lady ' pled; the ' villain ' laughed. The time passed slowly b ' . Till the heart of the ' villain ' melted. As he heard the ' lady ' cry. So, nearing the door of Marion ' s home, Basket all swelled with pride. Looked triumphantly at the small frail thing, Who nestled at his side. And, just as she stepped from out his car. He quickly dropped his head. For, she wielded a victrola crank at him, But broke two windshields instead. Now, out in the den of the dining room Sat the Pi Phi that ' s known as Lou, And by her side on the large divan Was the dangerous Sigma Nu. Then out of the night which was hotter than hell And into the frigid air. Strode a frosh from the Phi Delt house. With Nujol on his hair. He looked like one who ' d danced his last dance With scarceh ' the strength of a flea. But he straightened his tie with a steady eye. And called for a cup of tea. None could place the Phi Delt ' s face. Though we racked our brains for a clue. But he went right in and took the place, Of the dangerous Sigma Nu. Then, suddenly the lights went out, And two pins flashed in the dark. The lights went on to our great regret; And the sight we saw was stark. For the Phi Delt crest was pinned to the breast Of the Pi Phi known as Lou, And the Pi Phi cook wore a startled look At the pin of the Sigma Nu.

Page 435 Arno " Shorty " Xowotny, Assistant Dean of Men and former Yell Leader, has departed from the ranks of a bachelor and has entered into the folds of the retired married men. Just before taking this fatal step he was tendered a banquet by a number of his friends at the University Commons. At this time they did not present him with presents that are usualh ' gixen at a wedding party, but the ones given at this time will probably be as useful as any that could be selected. Despite the big dinner that was given, Max Fitchenbaum could not get his mind off the Stadium, and in the picture abo -e we see Max threatening Shorty with an ice pick for not paying his Stadium pledge. Blalock is in a very char- acteristic pose, holding a pair of ladies ' wearing apparel in front of him. Ed. Rather, being a married man himself and knowing the important part a rollmg- pin plays in married life, is warning Arno of its deadly effects. Dean Moore is present trying to keep the actions of the party as well within the rules laid down by the discipline committee as possible. The other members of the party, ashamed of the presents they brought to the party, have deposited the gifts in front of the honoree and have retired to the rear of the picture to escape direct connection with the gifts given— that is all, except Abbie Smith. Page4}6 The Fairies Izvays K oz ONCI ' upon a time a little child was found in the Bull Rushes. No, it wasn ' t Moses, for this one was more at home than his illustrious predecessor; and, sad to relate, he ne er ntanaged to extricate himself from them. Possibly it was bccatise there was no tiusk - faced Pharaoh ' s daughter to pull him out. " Who was it? " ou ask. Why none other than " dlorifying-the-American- Soap-Box " Foreman. Now little Perc ' , tor so the child was named, started out with an immense ego, a voice like a bass horn badly tooted, and a mind — at least, presumably. But the good fairies who gathered around at his birth were just reco -cring from a week- end at the Zeta house; consequently, their opinion of humanity in general, and squalling babies in particular, was not of the best. Besides they didn ' t like the Bull Rushes. They were fairies, however, and had to give gifts. " I gi -e him a face like a Gargoyle, " said the first. " And I a throat like an ass, " said the second. The third one wasn ' t a nice fairy; sometimes she flew into terrible tempers and conceived awful things for those who disturbed her. " I decree that, as he grows older, he fall in love with himself, that his hair grow long, that his voice increase, and that in his twenty-first year he lose what little mind he may still have. " The others stood aghast at these pro- nouncements. It was a sentence such as had never been made before. Then she tried to outdo herself. " Do you remember that little brat with the colic that gave us so much trouble last week? " " But there are so many babies that have the colic, " objected the first. " I know, but this one was especially bad ; she was destined to be a Zeta. She had a queer name; a name that made it impossible zv for her o be anything but a campus joiner. I have it now — Tillie Frances Young. I fur- ther decree that in that year it shall come to pass that little Percy shall desire to climb from his social obscurity as a result of his having been given the Presidency of the Law School and a position on the Athletic Council as political prizes for his support of pretty Eddie Gossett in the previous year ' s elections. " It is written in the stars that Sam Johnson will resign after an argument over a tin can — thus leaving the editorship of the Texan open. It is also determined that the emptiness of the thoughts of ' Glorifying — the American Soap-Box ' shall be declared to the world by one Edward Steere in the editorial column of the same paper. " " It shall also come to pass that gentle Jennie — I mean, Tillie, will think herself capable of holding any office this side of Hell, after dazzling the literary society and Sunday School worlds with her brilliance. " Thinking to get the hide of Ed Steere and at the same time ' get in ' with the Zetas, this tough chunk of meat will propose to Tillie and her gang that she run for editor-in- chief. Since Zetas are always Zetas, they will fall for the apostle in the Bull Rushes. " " Then what will happen? " the other two asked breathlessly. " That ' s the best part of it. The soap bubble will blow up; he won ' t even be able to deliver the votes of his own bullrushers. Tillie will find herself without supporters. The embarrassment both to her and to the Zetas will be great. " And here she laughed — " Percy will never be able to get another office; so he will only be known to his grand bullrushers as the champion hog- caller of East Texas. " Thus in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and twenty-seven, it came to pass, even as the fairy had decreed, that politics — in the phrase of the Little Red School House — made strange seatmates. Page 437 A CAMPUS TRAGEDY Melvin Williamson, the man with comic face and tragic stick, has been, for many years, a conspicuous figure on the campus. His exploits justly entitle him to distinc- tion as a ludicrous tragedian. His distinguishing asset is his mastery of innocuous profanity. Curtain Club rehears- als have been enlivened by Melvin ' s harmless oaths. And, when profanity is out of order, he has another trick to suit the need. Once, after a strenuous performance, he swooned with the grace of an Adonis in a car filled with feminine admirers. But the real test of the true actor is in the manner of his exit. Melvin runs true to form. Throwing his cane away, and assum- ing the pose of the tragic Dane, he exclaimed " To graduate or not to graduate. That is the question, Whether ' tis nobler in the Mind to bear The stings and sorrows of outrageous fortune — • But Math — Ah! there ' s the rub! " So here we have tragedy at last. The mys- teries of the binomial theorem and quadratics of the second degree are just three long jumps beyond the intellectual horizon of little Melvin. Thrice he has tried, and thrice has he failed. Now, with unconscious art, he petitions the faculty to set aside this requirement, and to bestow upon him the sheepskin which will recommend Melvin Williamson to the plaudits of " All those to whom these presents come, greeting. " NIGHT REPORT (Continued from Page 429.) A. T. 0.— Keith telling the new boys of what a good time they had at the Kid party given some years ago.

He seemed intentionally impressed with THE show he had seen in New York — Cocoanuts. CHI OMEGAS— It was almost midnight and the girls were preparing to leave on their first dates of the night. Those who didn ' t rate dates were seated on the west side of the house, hoping to attract the attention of some lonesome Sigma Chi.

Page 441 Sweepings from the Trash T ile S this page we have some most characteristic poses of se eral of our most prominent fellow students. Directly to the left is a picture, the three reasons for the Thetas ' social position, whatever it may be. Next we have Miss Ruth Hastings ex- hibiting two dramatic expressions learned during her month ' s stay in New York. The pose on the left is pensiveness and the one next to it simplicity. On the left at the bottom of page we ha e the carrying out of a bet made be- tween Gooch and Stallter which was lost by both. And last but not least a simply darling picture of Ike Sewell at the age of one.

At this time we have just heard that a most interesting and important trial is to be brought before the high judicial order of the Curtain Club in the very near future. It seems as though the trouble arose over a most dramatic fight between Melvin Williamson and Bob Massengale. Melvin, having just returned from the Amateur Players ' Contest at Dallas where he attempted to fight every stage hand that crossed his path and still having his fighting spirits at their ver ' highest pitch, immediately took steps to have Massengale made an outcast from society by having him ousted from the high and noble Curtain Club. A trial is now pending in this great body. We have heard rumors from a very reliable source that Miss Ruth Hostings will not be allowed to testify in the coming trial. We have also heard that certain acts of a picnic given by the Curtain Club last spring along the banks of the famous Bull Creek will be rehearsed in the coming judicial hearing. The details of this little outing of last spring would doubtless be most interesting, but as we have onh- heard vague rumors concerning them and there is such a slim chance of them getting by the censors we hesitate to do more than refer to them. Within very recent times there has arisen upon our campus one of the most powerful political machines in the history of the United States. Efforts were made to keep this great organization secret for some time, at least long enough to keep it out of the grind, but news of it leaked out just about two da ' s too soon. One has but to look at the leaders of the powerful machine to grasp the vast importance and great strength of this powerful order. The leaders are none others than the reserved Judge Joe Estes, the great Charles " Dutch " Rein- hard, and the unassuming Lucian " Mama Lou " Touchstone. They are seek- ing to take the student elections into their hands and run them as they should be run. None of the bosses named above have been in school less than five years, and now they are beginning to fear that there may be a few students in the University of Texas who do not realize the great potential powers stored up in the souls of these political geniuses and the great positions obtained by these men— such fear can be easily justified — and within the last two months of their school career they are making one last desperate efifort to obtain a feather to wear in their hats and to impress the entire student body with their great importance in the school activities of our large institution. Page 444 Cactus Thorn Publications Austin, Texas April 9, 1927. Dear reader: At last the work of seven months is finished, and the editors are preparing to enjoy a brief few days of rest before beginning their last " grind. " We feel relieved because we ha e done our duty, and we feel anxious lest our efforts fail to furnish ou amusement. Whether you enjoy this section or not, please understand that we undertook it purely in the spirit of fun, and we make no apologies for what has been written. We have acted in all sincerity, and we can but hope that we will not be suspected of malice. We believe that the remarks we have made are apt. We think some of them are humorous. We know them to be true. We have left out man - who we thought would feel an inner glow of pride from even a most casual mention. These we intentionally omit, as we do not intend to be complimentary. We have been guilty of no partiality; we number our dearest friends among our ictims. If we ha e been too caustic, it was because we felt that necessity demanded it; and, if we have been too lenient, it was because we were ignorant of some of the facts. We feel that our right of criticism is apparent. In other words, if you are in this section it is your own fault; if you are not, it is because the things you did are not fit to print. Love and kisses. Page 445 zAnd This In Qonclusion — THE last jaicture has been sent to the engraver; the last page of copy is now in the hands of the printer. The 1927 Cactus is completed. As we gaze at the littered office about us we are reminded of the many long hours of work and worry we have spent in compiling this volume. The typewriters, the shears, and the telephone are enjoying a much-needed rest, and all is quiet and peace- ful about the office in L Hall. At this lime, as we look back over our year ' s work, we can see where the book might be improved in numerous respects, but lack of time and finances pre- vent us from changing now. We have endeavored to make this issue of the Cactus as representati ' e of the entire student bodj- as possible. In this effort, several new sections have been added. In the grind, we have tried to make it of uni ' ersal interest by mentioning as many of the representative groups and personalities as we could think of. But our acquaintances are limited, we do not know everyone, and we cannot keep in touch with c erything that is going on on and about the " Fort} ' Acres. " We have asked for assistance and co-opera- tion from the students and have received very little, so we have taken the material we had and could get and work with it as best we could. If anyone feels as though he has been personally offended by having a di.Terent picture run from the one he selected, by having his name spelled with an " e " instead an " i, " or by some remark made about him in the grind, we ap- ologize and assure him that no harm was intended. In the Thorn section we have striven to avoid the vulgar and phonographic and to stick to the humorous and the clever. Editing the Cactus has not lieen an easy job. It has already cost us several courses lost through negative hours and otherwise, and has left us a very slim chance of remaining in school at the close of the Spring term. Cer- tainly- none of us have approached Phi Beta Kappa grades. But, in spite of all the trials and tribulations we have had to go through with, we feel some- what of a pride at having been associated with this publication. Our work has at times been hard, but it has never ceased to be pleasant. Our work is done. The Cactus of 1927 is in your hands.- Take it, read it, criticise it. We realize our shortcomings and know they are many. We have done our best. Our success or failure is for you to judge. If our efforts have proven weak, we are sorry; if they have pro -en to be of some avail, we feel amph- repaifl. — Bill Elklxs. Page 44( 4t Page 44 Ml II 1. ' I i i ' n ! ' ♦ ?n .

This was the case with our disappearing forests up to a very few years ago. Conservation of our forests is a subject which should be of great interest to every young person in the country for it is upon them that will fall the penalty for their fathers ' thoughtlessness. Did you know that we are destroying our forests four times as fast as they are growing? Does that fact make you stop and think? The time is close upon us when we must invent a substitute for wood or else must carefully con- serve our remaining forests and preserve the wood we use. In parts of Arizona they are using trees three hundred years old to make railroad cross-ties which last in service but nine years. By modern methods of creosoting them the same ties would last from twenty-five to thirty years. Practically all the really ripe trees are gone from our local forests and the lumber now being used is cut from trees about forty to fifty years old. In the older European countries they awoke years ago to the neces- sity of conservation, and their forests received the same care that we lavish upon our gardens. And why not? The tree is the king of the vegetable world and is deserving of royal care. Logged-ofF land and other waste areas must be reforested, and while waiting one or two human generations for these baby trees to reach maturity we must depend upon scientific preservation of the wood used. The Texas Creosoting Company of ORANGE, TEXAS specializes on a high-pressure treatment, using more than two hundred pounds pressure per square inch. This forces the creosote oil deep into the wood and renders it absolutely immune to decay. Depending some- what upon the use to which it is put and its situation, creosoted wood will last from three to ten times as long as untreated wood. The time is nearly upon us when we must preserve all wood used in exposed places, and the reasonable thing to do is to start now and Conserve and Preserve. Pag,- 4S2 H. L. ConiixoLR, President H. J.

" It is pride of quality that caused the Inter- national Cement Corporation to develop the famous International " Wet Blending " process of manufacture — to make this extra effort to insure the super-quality of Lone Star Cement. The International Wet Blending Process achieves a new degree of uniformity, made possible by the exact chemical control which this process affords. 350 pounds of water are evaporated for every barrel of Lone Star Cement made by this process. This means that the mills of the International System evaporate 50,000,000 gallons of water daily. The extra fuel required to evaporate this quantity of water would generate enough electricity to light the homes of one million people. The added cost is offset by the confidence of the user in Lone Star Cement. For the International Wet Blending Process results in a super-quality cement because it ( i) assures a perfect mechanical mixture of extreme intimacy, (2) affords absolute uniformity and (3) makes possible complete control of chemical content. It is pride of quality which causes those in charge of every niill in the International System to adhere to this standard, not just today or tomorrow, but always, no matter what manufacturing expediency might dictate. .

GOVERNMENT statistics, as used in the textbook on Thrift and War Savings Stamps, indicates that of lOO average American men (starting at age of 25), upon reaching age of sixty- five, fifty-four per cent are not even self-supporting. These fifty- four out of every hundred are actually dependent upon others for their daily bread. Now is the time to make provision against the needs and wants in later life. Now, a young man, or a man in his prime, can take the steps necessary to guard against want in later life.
