Some of the natives of these parts had been complaining about the long, ,dry spell and 'asked if, the rain-producers would be so obliging as to have a party and produce said needed rain. The sky was clear all day Saturday, and it was thought by some, that a miracle was going to happen in the form of no rain on- an "A"* company party— but about six o'clock the clouds be- gan to. gather and, although the' precipitation was able to restrain itself until about 9:30; the custom-' ary rain materialized as it has on the last three parties which the members of the excellent company „ ■ have attended.

-WW HfljW a Boy Can Express Good Taste It-is very easy to tell whether or not a girl has good taste. The . things she does each day show to the world her good taste or her bad taste. There are many things by which a boy can be judged in this particular thing. If he wears clothes that are un- becoming, very conspicuous, or un- fcidy, he shows good taste. '• Another way by which a boy shows, his tsate is in: his facial make-up. Rouge and lipstick us,ed excessively show a' mark of very poor taste and look very unnatur- al and conspicuous. Many boys who have good taste know: how to conduct themselves in public. They should chew gum and try to "show off"; to be awkward and boisterous at parties. By all these things a boy is judg- ed every day of his life. Boys, are these things of good taste? No, ! this is not according to the popular belief of the boys and, girls of f Tarleton. ; It niay be admitted that the pres- ent day college students may ap- pear as sophisticated hard-boiled sort o...

At four-thirty a[ m( it looked as though any bunch crazy enough tp venture out on a morning like that should get wet. This fact did not seem, to bother this group at all, for they donned thei'if."rain- coats and climbed on the truck ■with optimistic smiles on their faces. As soon as their destination was reached, they found that 1 the ground was not very mudtjy; ty>w- ever, it looked as though they would have to build a' fire to dry the wood. After a big fire -yvas built, everyone helped to prepare breakfast, which was grapefruit, ham, bacon, eggs, bread, preserves, butter, and cofffee.
