Collegian OF DANIEL BAKER COLLEGE VOLUME 42 BROWNWOOD TEXAS THURSDAY FEBRUARY 22 1951 NUMBER 2 The Date Of Ranch Week Announced By Senate A special meeting of the Senate was held Thursday February 15 for the purpose of making plans and establishing committees to ex- ecute those plans for Ranch Week and the rodeo. A tentative date was set for Ranch Week. It will begin Mon- day April 2 and continue through Saturday night April 7. It was decided by the Senate to hold the rodeo two nights this year instead of one. Tentatively the ro- deo will be held Friday and Satur- day nights of Ranch Week. Ad- mission to the rodeo will be the same as last year fifty cents and one dollar. Various sub-committees were ap- pointed to execute plans for the rodeo with "Sleepy" Boyd as chairman of the Rodeo Committee. Riders and- volunteer workers for the rodeo are needed.

The absenteeism of Senators is so great that a quorum can be formed at its meetings. This is a shameful situation and would seem to indicate a decided disinterest of those Senators in the student government and student activities. It is to be expected that on certain occasions a Senator may find it impossible to attend a meeting. But it seems hardly excusable when so many Senators find it impossible to attend so many of the m...

IX I Page 4 THE COLLEGIAN JANUARY 18 1951 Composition The English teacher looked out over the expanse of blank faces and shook her old grey head sad- ly. Poor things they'd never amount to anything. But never let it be said that Miss Witherspoon didn't at least try to make some- thing of her students. Today's lesson was to be an ex- periment in originality. "Now chil- dren" she began "I will give you a sentence and I want each of you to rewrite this sentence v in your own distinctive little way. At the end of the class period we will then read orally what you have written. Now let's begin. Here's the sentence: 'The gentle- man peregrinated in that direc- tion.' " Miss Witherspoon shuffled the stack of papers closed her eyes said eny meeny miny moe and chose one. There was a certain amount of justice in her brutality. 'Well well" she said.

Gradually the people notice the noise and quiet down. Isolated groups are late in giving their attention so interested had they been in their conversations. We are in what could be described as a huge class room but such a large one I have never seen before. It would be fu- tile to attempt to count the people. To identify any racial predomi- nance appears to be impossibble. Clearly this is an international group here in this room. And the ages have you noticed? Babes and wrinkled elders are side by side. . Certainly it appears no one was left at home when the school bell rang. Employers employees beggars hard - working farmers fishers men who work in the outdoors ail their lives. Their wo- men and children alf are here. Why? This class room is the world we all live in and the teacher who is rapping for our attention' is Ex- p...

Page 4 TH1 COLLEGIAN MARCH 15 1951 THE POET'S CORNER The man in the moon had drawn his shades And the night was black ai the ace of spades; The gaumy girtle with two green flares Beneath the myrtle was saying his prayers When out of a crack in the gnarled trunk A fragile female rigure slunk. With a rustle of leaves and a wooden groan She perched herself on the old gray stone. The girtle gazed with a fixed stare As she combed the leaves from her mossy hair; Then the light of the flares caught her knot-hole eyes And she gazed at him in mild sur- prise. She wriggled her roots and he heard her sigh "A delicate delicate Druid an I!" The girtle stammered "Why how do you do? Would you care for a game of tic-tac-to?'" But never a word escaped her lips As she shook her head and wig- gled her hips. Then with sigh and groan her voice began In accents never heard by man To tell the tale of her sad begin- ning When even the trees were bent on sinning. "My father proud was a mighty oak; My mother...

MARGH 15 1951 THE COLLEGIAN PK I Cagers Tough Season Daniel Baker's 1960-1951 basket- ball team ended the season on the third of March in a game with St. Edward's University in. Austin. With their great advantage in height which has been the great- est problem the Billies have faced all year the Saints were able to gain a hard 68-59 win over the Billies. On February the Billies received their worst defeat of the season when a fast and tall ball club of Midwestern University de- feated them 89 to 52. Out of the 17 games lost this year three of them were by one point and one by two points in a five minute over-time game and about five games were lost by less than 10 points. The first one-point loss was to Southwestern Univer- sity the second to Saint Mary's University and the third to Sul Ross State. The scores were: 55- 54; 62-61 and 61-60. The Tarleton State game was lost by two points: 57-55. Although losing four games by a total of five points the Billies won three of their games ...

In all questions that touch deep- ly upon our spiritual life upon the building of native character there is a danger lest the secondary in- terests that gather around the cen- tral argument should obsure the primary interest of that reality about which we argue. We have all heard of the theologian who be- came so absorbed in his argument for the existence of God that he forgot to say his prayers.

This project was started last Spring semester but was completed dur- ing the Summer term. We can feel great pride in this room for it was through the help of all the students that the room is now the most attractive spot on the cam- pus. Those who did not actually labor in the rejuvenation process helped by donating money to buy materials. Boys and girls on the campus spent many hours work- ing on this room. But each of them now feels that his time was well spent. We still owe the Ranch Week Fund for part of the new furni- ture so in the near future plans are being made to have some so- cial functions which may have a small admission price. If...

At first glance at the situation I pictured one of our Gilmer-Aiken co-eds (about well about ??? years old) asking Mrs. Scott for a 10:30 night. Then I checked to see why official opinion set such regulations. At once my attitude changed. At long as young unmarried students are housed with women of the more matured variety then both must abide by the same regulations. In the first place the regulations were set up as a ...
