TR Y Valorous Invincible Dependable Enduring True Tried Efficient Soldiers TR Y Volume 10. STEPHEN VILLE, TEXAS, APKID 12, 1930 Number 26. Cadet Corps To Be Inspected Monday PLOWBOYI Howard Payne has a track team— anyway they have a man by the name of McCarver who attends school over there. The Plowboys gained very valu- able experience in the dual meet held on Hays Field last Friday. They showed the Yellow Jackets that the Plowboys could also run and throw weights. Thrills, thrills, thrills,—things that seldom happen in Stephenville, were thick as the last event was in pro- cess. The mile relay was the feature of the meet for Tarlcton. Hamil thrilled the crowd as lie passed his opponent who started with almost a twenty-yard lead. Cook and Gilli- land offered the other thrills during the last two laps of the race. Tarlo- ton's team won the relay by a large margin. Our "Golden Kod" was also there in considerable numbers. He was the "Cy Iceland" of Tarleton. We are ex- pecting great t...

Ti THE J-TAC A Brief History Of The Videttes This shall bo an attempt to present facts concerning the "Vidottes in as brief and concise a form as possible. To introduce them, may we say that it is a chevishcd institution seeking, not only to furnish a crack drilled organization, but to better Tarleton in every possible way, to furnish ex- cellent material for real men. Throe times tho Vidottes or their unnamed predecessors have compet- ed in the at one time annual compe- tition at tho State Fair of Texas. In as many starts we have won second place. In a military manner the first purpose of the company was to win the first, prize, a loving cup, but the drills having been abolished, the purpose has changed. Tho jirimary purpose, now is simply to perfect an excellent military organization. Captain Irvin H. Hollinger, then an honorary major, commanded the first "Crack Company" sent to Dal- las. Captain Ray W. Harris, U.S.A., supervised the training of this com- pany. He had only a very ...

"V? THE J-TAC PASSING IN REVIEW By Corporal 'Punishment Not everyone in chapel can com- pete with Jenny Lind or Caruso in the little matter of singing; but if the number should be announced at a time when there is less noise, prob- ably the singing would be better. The next step for Tarleton is the addition of two more years of work, i At least the next to the greatest movement possible has been started —the walk leading to the postoft'ice. Now that the vernal equinox is past, probably a good many fresh- men will need larger hats because in green things the vascular bundles seem to carry the sap right on up. Burns was right when he said something about haw the best laid schemes "gang aft agley." Just as the valiant attack of the offense group of the extended order unit was about to execute "Up an' at 'em," the order came liurriendly to reorganize into a labor battalion. However, practically all of the boys showed up at the track meet. Natur- ally it was a little "griping" at the sta...

THE J-TAC FRAZTIER'S ARMY Not long ago Frazier borrowed a whole platoon of the Vidottcs to demonstrate the principles of infil- tartion or some thin7, we never did know what. You can—or p'raps you can't—imagine our surprise. At any rate we were mixed in with Fraz- ipr's army and was marched across the Hunewell Park to the wall which surrounds the campus. There we "went over the top" then turned around and began our advance on the enemy. I never was quite crctain just what we were raiding, but X think it was the chicken roost just west of the drill field. Not that tho Vi- dettes would rob a chicken roost, but this wasn't- a chicken roost, it was just a pen with chickens runnin' around in it and they was awful crowded and some of them would probably have died anyway; surely there couldn't of been no harm in borrowin' a few of them when they was so crowded—especially if the officers were goin' to help. Anyway we never found out cause the bugle blew and wo all deserted, but I do not bel...

THE J-TAC it^n* SNAPPY SPORT SHOTS Monday morning at chapel our track coach, Oss Frazier, announc- ed that our boys who went to Aus- tin brought back four silver medals for second place in the relay, and those who went to S. M. U. brought back two trophies, and eight gold medals for first places in the 880 re- lay, and the medley. They also brought back four silver medals for second place in the mile relay. Honk Irwin got busy last Friday at the meet between Tarleton and Howard Payne by breaking the State records on both the discus, and shotput, and winning over his nearest competitors by a wide mar- gin. "Goldenrod" Gilliland won the 440 dash by a wide margin, and Kelscy, Hamil, Cook, and "Golden- rod" brought the mile, relay in with flying colors. We musn't forget ou( Kelsey when we speak of the relay team, lie did not show up so well last Fri- day because ,of the condition which he was in. He also had one of the fastest men in the race.

THE J-TAC TY HEART OF TEXAS PICNIC Last Wednesday evening the Heart of Texas Club assembled in front of the Now Auditorium to go to the College Farm on a picnic. "We hiked out there and back. We went by the way of the railroad, and many of the members complained of being dizzy when they crossed the Bosque Bivel'. We do not know whether it was duo to the cracks in the bridge or something they had to drink. However, we arc under the impression that it was something to <?rink, as many of our members were unable to attend class Thursday. We arrived at the farm just at sun down. After going through the dairy barn, we went down on the creek just below the farm. Wood gathering was the first fea- ture of the evening, .After a bright fire was started, we' gathered in a circle, and each member and his guest told their names and where they were from. The question arose as to what would be next, and every member was astonished at Greta Cawyer's continued cry for food. It seemed that she had ...
