THE J-TAC Tennis Team To Play Ranger Junior College Stockton and Adams to Give Strong Opposition in Doubles The Tarleton tennis team, the mainstay of our spring sports, is going to Ranger Junior College on.Tuesday of this week to try to bring home another "scalp." The Tarleton team, composed of Adams, Stockton, Blair, and Livingston, de- feated Ranger last week in five out of six matches, and they play to take six out of the "half dozen" games in the present contest. The contestants for champion- ship of Tarleton have been elimi- nated until only Stockton and Ad- ams remain. These two men com- pose our doubles team and are "plenty" good. They will play off the final match in the near future. It is this combination that we rue depending on in two of the six matches to be played at Ranger. These boys have had plenty of ex- perience; and, even if they are our own, they are classy tennis play- ers. Let's back our tennis team, gang. Speak a word of encourage- ment to them, and try duly t...

T H E J-T A C Miles Per Gallon Our dear, beloved,. and rotund Sergeant has reached such a high degree of efficiency that he will soon be having the corps' doing- the highland fling to satisfy his cur- osity of extended order. Speaking of efficiency, when a person, reaches the point where he exchanges a self-addressed envelope for a sample of some sort and a promise of being agent for the ter- ritory,. then he should retire—and not buy Fisks either. Then if this person can become so engrossed in the magic de^l that he will buy a quart of the marvelous liquid to convince his friends, he has reached the climax. Some people can make others sit Up and listen when they amaze their companions by a startling ability to play the piano; others can speak English coi+rectly in three lessons; while still others can become beautiful in one application. But whoever heard of a double dose of marvelous liquid causing a half a tank of gasoline to overflow? The sergeant buys a quart of "gas bug," (tha...

THE J-T A C WISE CRACKS (By A. Broken Skull) Cease firing! Wow, I -wonder if any of these profs are going to stop making- assignments long enough to figure out that there are a few other courses offered in this institution of learning besides their own? Well, perhaps we can stand it if they can. I doubt it, though. Any- way, I am awfully glad that I am not on the faculty now. Perhaps you haven't noticed it, but this spring atmosphere certain- ly has its etfeets, Now get your mind above your ears; we aren't speaking of the famous S. A.ers of the campus this time; perhaps we'll get to them later. If you don't believe what I say, just come out on the drill field some fine morning, and watch those boys drill. Really, it is good to see. And how about these Wednesday evening plate lunches? Will we, or will we not like them? Well, there is only one way to find out, take a chance and see for ourselves. Shall we? We wonder if the boys in the fa- mous Vitaphone production were the only bunch ...

THE J-TAC i 'i THOUGHTS While Strolling Herman Allen bud a most event- ful trip on his return home fnrni Ft. Worth last \Veek-end. It seems that lie missed the Iras and was forced to i'at eh the night train. He was very fired and weary when he got on, and since the night- was warm and pleas- ant-, lie stuck his head out of the window and went to sleep. When the conductor hollered all abroad for Stephenville, Herman awoke and found three mail sacks on his neck .Did you ever, while walking down the avenue, return the friendly wave of a pretty Co-Ed across the street and immediately find that she was waving at some ]<yig-l egged, troualed hair boy behind you?

T H E J-T A C Here and There What will you do during your holidays? Will you make your vis- it home a pleasant one, or will you make your parents have a left-out feeling in their hearts? The S. A .-ers are trying to in- stitute a new plan to gain more time at the dining- hall. Paper plate lunches are going to be the fad on Wednesday evenings. This will give the boys and girls about twenty minutes more each day, but it may cause trouble; for when the girls have to eat with the boys, the love may fade. It has been rumored that the all- Tarleton boy will not spend the holidays in his homo town, but will be found in Burkett. This is not hard to believe. Just a few more weeks in which to be together in Tarleton. Are you conducting yourself so that you v/ill have no regrets when the session over ? Tho friends that you make in Tarleton will be lasting ones. Revei in the opportunities that you have in making them pleasant. Friou: "Why does a woman shut her eyes when you kiss her?" Fuller: "...

Again we meet to discuss topics of interest to the entire college. Have you been keep- ing up with the school since you re- turned from the holidays, or have you been trying to catch up with . some of that sleep that you lost when yo uwere, at home?

THE J-TAC A Seated Musicale A most charming and unusual seated musicale was given at the home of Mi's. Swan Richardson on North Belknap street on Monday afternoon and Monday evening of last week. The musicale was spon- sored by Mrs. Richardson, Mrs. Moody, and Miss Minn F'erguson. Two very accomplished artists were guests of the hostesses and provided the entertainment which started at 4:30 in the afternoon and again at 8:00 o'clock in the evening. The artists, Mrs. Estes and Miss Ina Gilliland of Fort Worth, gave a very delightful program of mu- sical selections. One hundred and fifty guests attended the musicale, including both afternoon and eve- ning- guests. The artists were in- troduced to the guests by Mr. Char- les W .Froh, head of the conserva- tory of music at John Tarleton College. Miss Gilliland was at one time head of the voice department of John Tarleton College and has many friends in Stephenville. She was a staff artist in Los Angeles until two years ago. She was for-...

"1 T H E J-T A C Tarleton Players to Give Play May 12th The Taileton Players will pres- ent soon the popular three?act play, MISS LULU BETT, by Zona Gale. Many students, perhaps, have read the novel of the same name. ..Zona Gale is a very out- standing novelist and dramatist of today. It is hard to refrain from superlatives when discussing her accomplishment in writing MISS LULU BETT, first as a novel which mirrored commonplace Amer- ican family life with such gimlet- sharp fidelity that the whole na- tion paused to sge their own re- flections, and then as a play of such excellence that it won the $1,- 000 Pulitzer Prize of the year in which it was produced. Properly speaking, the play is not a dramatization of the novel at all, but a separate achievement. To bring it about, Miss Gale was obliged to put all save the charac- ters and the initial situation of her novel as completely out of mind as if it had never been written. Starting with, these, she'has caus- ed her play to develop...

THE J-TAC D. G. Hunewell Goes to Hayes, Kas., State Music Contest Professor D. G. Hunewell of the music department has had a great honor placed upon both himself and the college by his being select- ed as one of the three judges of the Kansas State High School Music Contest. The contest is to be held at Hayes, Kansas, beginning- April 30 .and lasting four days. It is sponsored by the State Teachers' College. The other two judges are Mr. and Mrs. Lieurance. Mr. Lieu- rance is a noted composer, and he is especially well known for his Indian songs. Being selected to work with such recognized music- ans as the Lieurances is in itself an honor. It is interesting further to know that Mr. Hunewell was reared in Kansas and lived there many years. Personals Miss Benny Valliant had as her guests during the holidays Miss Charlie Valliant of Breckeniidge and Miss Ouida Valliant, a student og Texas State University. Mr. W. E. Moody, better known as "Uncle Moudy," spent the holi- days at his home...

(i THE J-TAC DEAN DAVIS DISCUSSES PROGRESS OF JUNIOR COLLEGES (Continued from page one) progress of junior colleges of the N ation: "There has been no great im- petus in the development of any number of junior colleges during 'the last few years in the State of Texas. There are several incidents, however, which tend toward the recognition of the junior college as iin integral part of a complete sys- tem of public education. The junior colleges of th'j State have grown in favor with their constituency wherever they are located. They have strengthened their faculties and curricula and are tending to- ward a rather substantial program of junior college education from the standpoint of curricula require- ments, faculty load, faculty qualifi- cations, and administration. There pre at present two private junior colleges, 16 denominational junior (olleges, 18 municipal junior col- leges, t'nd two state junior colleegs being operated in the Srate of Tex- as for white students.

THEJ-TAC National Music Week Next Week National Music Week, which is now observed in almost every coun- ty in all 'states of the Union, was accidentally suggested by Mrs, Har- per of Dallas, Texas. Ten or twe- lve years ago she suggested to all the music teachers of Dallas that a day be set aside each year devot- ed! entirely to music and being com- pletely representative of their group. At the time a National Convention of piano-makers and dealers met in Dallas and were so heartily in sympathy with the idea that some of the New York men carried the thought to Mr. Trem- aine, secretary of the National Bu- reau of Music. His organization im- mediately began plans of develop- ing the idea, and now National Mu- sic Week is observed all over the nation. Special programs of all kinds are rendered in cities and churches, over radios, in business and civic organizations, in schools, and even in rural communities. The week of May 4 has been de- signated by the National Music Bu- reau as the...

T H E J-T A C Travels Abroad (DOLLIE 'MARIE GLOVER) (Continued from Last Week) We left the Hotel Grand Bre- tagne at Florence at nine o'clock on the morning of August 13. On our way. to'NapIes we saw among other things, some pretty Italian villas and some mountains covered with Lombardy cypress trees. Just be- fore we arrived in Naples, we saw Vesuvius in the distance with a great column of black smoke pour- ing from its crater. Instantly every one became excited about seeing a real volcano; some were excited for fear it might erupt, and some were exeited for fear the smoke and sparks might disappear before we were close enough to see it quite well. On the morning of August 14 we went to Pompeii to view the ruins there caused , by the eruption of a volcano in 79 A. D. It has been generally understood that Pompeii was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius, but our guide told us that it was Mt. Somma and not Vesuvius that erupted and covered Pompeii with ashes, stones, and sand and co...
