THE THRESHER HOUSTON. TEXAS GARDEN OF ROSES TO RE PLANTED Crepe Myrtle and Hedges Will Be Set Out Tony 5«ys Though most of the student body, male and female, see little besides the ground In their perambulations about the campus (such being the zeal with which snipes are hunted), a few of those trying to rid themselves of a crick in the neck have probably noticed during the past week that Tony and his tribe of underlings are busily engaged in setting out trees all over the campus. When questioned concerning the nature and extent of his plans the head of the gardening department dis- closed the information that three hun- dred and fifty trees are being set out, and that further activities in beauti- fying the srouuds will take place right away. An Italian rose garden will be planted east of the Chemistry build- ing and just across the road from the Quadrangle. Three thousand rose bushes will be planted in the garden, and only two colors will lie present, pink and red. Tony says, also...

£HEjngRIMSlW TEXAS Or Waiting for the Co-Ed Thresher Friday morning at nine o'clock a notice appeared on the door of the Thresher office reading thus: "The bad news will be out at 11 o'clock." The bad news was out. The much discussed—and eussed--Co-ed Thresh- er had not come out on time and there was apparently no hope of it coming out Friday, at all. The astonishing gullibility of the human animal was well demonstrat- ed by the constant stream of interest- ed students who entered the office and, warned by the ever present Red Barthelme not to take more than one as there were only a few left, seized a copy and hurried out without even a glance at the date line. Red did as good a business as any newsboy who cries "Extra" in order to dispose of yesterdays papers. Twelve-thirty and the Co-ed Thresher is out. Red ink, can you beat that, looks hot or bolshevik. On persual not so hot nor very either. SHOTS ON THE SHOWS MAJESTIC—The bill this week is filled with a fair sprinkling of humor....

You may be the world to your Mother but you're a pain in the neck to me. His hoary beard of length six feet has touched the crimson sward. Hence, all you, the sexton has van- ished too. Three cheers, she cried, the Merrimae has swum the foaming tide. Nay, nay, Pauline, I'd marry you but for the folks on your father's side. Koui villain, join you with the sexton, hence, hence. (She screams.) And holding tight she swamped the man with paper, reams and reams. I plight my troth to you, my dear, your shapely feet I kiss. What care 1 about your troth. O, has it come to this? Bo, so, you throw me down for the blond; the woman's wild. And reaching for the roof she cried, O Fireman Save My Child.

TAKING STOCK— (Continued from Page 1.) ther there will be more than ten men on hand—and these consti- tute practically ALL the football- era of ANY kind there are in col- lege in the present Sophomore and Junior classes. Never anywhere have I heard of such a paucity of football material as this in two whole classes. Were it not that we had a fine bunch of entering Freshmen last fall our place on the gridiron next season would undoubtedly be with the Junior colleges. That bunch of Freshmen MAY save us—they can if they will. They do look bet- ter than usual—not merely on the athletic field but in the classroom as well. They seem to be a stea- dier, more stable, lot than we have been finding in the Freshman class. As a plain fact, just ONE likely footballer among them has thus far absolutely fizaled. The rest are still here, though some half dozen or more of them are on that miserable "Pro" list again. They are: Calvert, San Giovanni, Mucke. Kendrick, Schroeder, Pow- ell and Hamilton. ...

Close competition between relay teams from the Western Conference, Missouri Valley Conference and the South at the Texas games last week made certain close battling between the same teams at the Kansas games soon. The University of Illinois and the University of Kansas sprint teams had two days of spirited battling in Texas with the honors going largely to the Illinol. It was these two team who stepped to world marks in the quar- ter and half mile relays at Kansas last year and the performances of the Jay- hawkers and Illini in the south be- speak new record making quartets be- fore the year is over.
