THE J-TAC PAGE THREE MANY THANKS—AND ALL THAT The decoration committee for the Christmas dance wishes to express its appreciation to all ;vho helped in preparing the gym for the entertainment. Special thanks are due Miss Gough and Byron Miller. NOTICE There will be no J-Tac until January 27, because of dead week and final examinations. * The Electrodes t Last Tuesday night while in the Dump parlor Van Parmley certain- ly did have a big time with two ba- by dolls. Kathleen was rather em- barrassed. Frances Coley and Mary Bob Snoddy either became religious or went out for a big tii e last Sunday night. They went to Bluff Dale on a Watch Party with a Methodist group. Roy Westmoreland, the famous J-Tac staff crooner, tried his best to explain to Needham Horner how he managed for his dates during the holidays. Some girl certaitily got things mixed up somewhere. She claims that a certain officer tried to make a hit with her in the show sometime just before the holidays. This co-ed said th...

PAGE FOUR THE J-TAC TARLETON JUDGING TEAM TO MEET STIFF COMPETITION At eight o'clock Saturday morn- ing, March 10, a nine-hour battle will begin in. the arena at the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show at Fort Worth. The weapons used will be accurate ob- servation, sound judgment, courage, honesty, and the ability to give rea- sons. Tarletoh will be represented by three young men who have prov- ed themselves competent for this great conflict. These young men will have been chosen from mem- bers of the junior class, and they must have had Animal Husbandry 303. The reader is probably wonder- ing what this struggle is all about. The dash is nothing more than the annual junior livestock' judging' contest sponsored by the Fat Stock Show. The next question is, "What will they be fighting for?" They will be fighting for Tarleton, of coarse, but most of al to uphold the record set for former Tarleton teams, and to set a higher standard for the teams of years to come. Tarleton's team ...

J-TAC VOL. XIV. STEPHENVlfrLE, TEXAS, SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1934. NUMBER 13 PLOWBOY Haw-'gee-do gang! Back again! Well, Coach Sanders decided to stop telling the boys how to do it and do it himself. He went back to his old position of left guard when the S. M. U. exes played the Chicago Bears in the Southwest's second game of real professional football. How "was it, Coach? Still have the same punch? Take it or leave it, but Tarleton has a championship team on the court this year. Baxter is playing excellent ball, and the team is func- tioning with what it takes to knock 'em down—teamwork. Tate should be called "Flying Tate," he seems to be off of the floor more than on it. Local boy makes good depart- ment: Taylor, last year's captain of the Plowboy track team, has been elected captain of big brother A. and M.'s track team. And speaking1 of track teams— we have one of the cinder path pre- paring to do things in the confer- ence this year. The boys who wield the rackets at the white ...

VOL. XIV. STEPENVILLE, TEXAS, SATOKDAY, FEERUARY 3, 1934 NUMBER 14 PLOWBOY The Tarleton quintet has com- pletely smashed two more strong teams, and the whole basketball fu- ture looks so bright that it dazzles our eyes. After the Plowboys down- ed Decatur by a nice margin, the chances of the purple and white for winning the conference seem 1.00 per cent. Payne and Tate starred in. the last games, both turning in beautiful work. Baxter has gained auch a reputation that opposing teams watch him as closely as is humanly possible, but he still man- ages to slip one by them every once in a while. The team as a whole showed wonderful teamwork. Even the town people have awak- ened to the fact that a real team is pounding the courts of the old college again. Everyone lias been turning out pretty nicely for these games, but the real test will come when the out-of-town games begin. The sail- ing all looks smooth, but there may be bumps, so follow the team and be ready to give them plenty of s...

THE J-TAC PAGE THREE Mr* Wilcox Recalls Murder Hoax Prank Played on Freshmen at Wayland College Back in 1929 Mr. Wilcox, now head of the Education Department here in John Tarleton College, was teaching in Wayland College, Of course, freshman life there is some- what like it is here. The freshmen always bite and wonder why later. Mr. Wilcox tells of an unusual incident that occurred among the hoys just for the benefit of the freshmen. A couple of seniors be- gan to quarrel and continued for a rather long- period. Instead of the boys getting over their difficulty, they grew more dangerous. Later these upperclassmen would get to- gether and fight each other, and other boys would have to separate them, A boy's curiosity is as great as a cat's; so the freshmen grew interested in this conflict. Things finally grew worse, and the feeling1 between the two boys grew high. One night on the third floor of the boys' dormitory there occurred quiet a commotion in the hall. A boy yelled, "Grab the...

PAGE FOUR THE J-TAG WEBSTER'S FLAPPER UNLIKE MODERN ONE When we interviewed Mr. Webs- ter on just what a flapper might be, he gladly yielded up the infor- mation that it is anyone that flaps, a young1 bird not yet able to fly well, or one who flaps another to remind him of some forgotten duty. But really, I don't believe that ole Noah ever came in con- tact with one of the type that we dub flappers today, or surely he could never have called them what lie so willingly, and seemingly knowingly, did. I guess that I am doomed to tell you just what jumps into mind4 when I think of a flap- per. Naturally, a flapper is one of the fair sex, for an awkward, gawky boy could never be such a thing. She wears her dresses above her knees when everyone is wearing hers daringly just below; likewise, her gowns have trains on them when everyone else's strike her ankles. She keeps her face paint- ed with the latest Paris tints, and frizzes her hair in the most attrac- tive manner, attractive in the s...

The Plowboy quintet has run up more than two points to the oppo- sition's one. Only two times have they had stiff groin*—once against Daniel Baker, and then once against Howard Payne. Total of ponits for Tarleton 400, the boys on the other side—214. Not bad, eh, not bad! Si* more games arc yet to be had—the first of which is against T. M. C. this day. Hillaboro and Ranger are slated to face us on the home court, so let's oil get behind the team, championship or bust! Sweeten, local flash, hops around the cinder path to break last year's state record for the half— in practice. Just the same, it's enough to give biff ideas to Tarle- ton, fans, Bitts Palmer still helps out the boxing team by ..calling signals for them, thus saving somebody some breath. Well, maybe they aren't al- ways rights but it is etlll a good idea. ...

NUMBER 10 PLOWBOYS TO PLAY RANDOLPH HERE TONIGHT PLOWBOY The Tarleton cagers are still marching along the road to victory, piling up point after point and as usual almost doubling the score of the opponents. The quintet made the trip to Terrell where they 'wal- loped the Bulldogs 42-25. The trip was hard on the team, being made through the rain and slush, and the turn-out was small. The team wont ahead and smashed through as us- ual hut they could have done even better with good, support. By the time this is printed the Plowboys should have another victory against Hillsboro chalked up to their credit. Next week the Purple and White will meet Decatur, on Tuesday and Weatherford on Friday. Both of these promise to be tough games and the boys will need support. Last of all the Plowboys meet N. T. A.

THE J-TAC PAGE THREE Having No Steer, Plowboy Turns Cowboy And Uses a Jersey Cow for a Substitute Stories are still told of the days when rough, tough, and fearless cowboys matched their strength, nerve, atid stamina with that of some animal. Only last week, an item appeared in the daily papers telling of a rancher having his hand nearly severed from llis arm by a rope. A steer was on the other end of the rope. The rancher, however, completed his bull-dog- ging feat and then cut his mangl- ed hand off with his pocket knife. But then we don't have to go to western ranches to see and hear of boys and animals arguing out their differences. It was last Thurs- day at noon that a certain member of the J-T&c staff decided to play cowboy. Having no steer with which to tussle, our boy, who >vas born thirty years too late, decided to practice on a harmless Jersey cow. Well, it happened that the cow was also wanting to play, but the cow started before the cowboy was ready to go. In fact...

The quintet from Randolph was smashed to the tune of 82 to 19. More than four times the total of the defeated team. Baxter was high point man, scoring 27 points, Wil- liam, led the Randolph boys with 8 points. After that game the Plow- boys invaded the Decatur home court and won a hard-fought vic- tory by a score of 34-28, Only a few turned out and followed the team. The ernes who did saw a real game. Not many people have the chance to see as wonderful a team as the Tarleton Cagers play. One of our star players will be unable to play in the next games due to illness. The game tonight -with Ranger will be tough and the absence of Tate will further handi- cap them. Turn out and help them overcome these difficulties. Fill the gym up and raise the roof! A g...
