0 J-TAC VOL. XV. STEPHEN VILLE, TEXAS, MONDAY, APRIL 1, 193o NUMBER 21 DECISION IS REVERSED IN PLATOON COMPETITION D COMPANY'S SECOND GETS RECOGNITION AS ACE OF CADET CORPS Absence of Commander Is Given Ay Reason For Change In Awards As the results of a reversed de- cision after further investigation of new evidence, the Second Pla- toon of Company D was declared the best platoon in the Cadet Corps, taking from the First Pla- toon of the same company the honor won in platoon competition some time ago, Lieutenant Davis announced this week. The grounds on which the plea for investiga- tion was made on the assertion that Wayne Evridge, commander of Second Platoon, was ill at the time of competition. Since it is an established fact that Lieutenant Davis regards a statement of "I was ill, Sir," with the same esteem that Aunt Lucy takes, "I don't need any medicine," a great curiosity led to a minute reading of the proceedings in in- vestigation. It seems that Evridge has al- ways had a gr...

Friday, March 22, the Ds Molays, the invited guests, and the spons- ors went to Possum Hollow to en- joy a quite, peaceful picnic, being refreshed with weiners, cookies, punch, olives, pickles and the night air. About 9:30 p. m. the horn was Wasted and the sheep came wand- ering in to be directed to their peaceful rest by the shortest path. The De Molay dance is sched- uled for April 29. FORT BOYS TAKE BLANKETS AND SEE 'POSSUM HOLLOW Aunt Lucy goes on her first bundling party; so she says. The Fort boys went on a picnic to 'Possum Hollow. The possums didn't hollow, but the picnic-goers did. Supper consisted of weiners, buns, tea, and sugared rolls. After supper, everyone (nearly) did about two hours of extended order drill. Colonel called upon every- body to assemble. The boys start- ed bai'k'toward town with a girl on one arm and a blanket oil the other. The Fort boys think that it was one of the best, ...

PAGE FOUR THE J-TAC PLOWBOVSCQPTRACK EVENTS, SMITH BEST With an unusually fast field and perfeet track weather, the Fort Worth Fat Stock Show track meet proved to be one of the outstand- ing athletic events in the nation last Saturday. Many records were shattered, including the mile re- lay. Jack Smith, J.T.A.C. speed demon, refusing assistance, prov- ed to be the sensation of the meet when he ran all four quarters of the relay in three hours and ten minutes. The versatile Jack is also busineiis manager of the J-Tae. He brags a lot but he is just as good as he says. Vinton Gage said he was as good a miler as Glenn Cunningham, and, pitted together for the first time, the Purple and White left the eastern star far in the rear. Cunningham, despite his crutches and a broken arm, fought gamely but the Tarleton boy prov- ed too much for him. For years Coach Frazier's cin- der lads have smashed one record after the other, hut the most un- expected was perfected by Edwin Dyess, A natural cr...

J-TAC VOL. XV, STEPlI'KNYTIiLE, TEXAS, .SATURDAY, APKIL (5, 1935 NUMBER 23 PLOWBOY Promptly at 0 bells Thursday, the annual inspection of the Cadet Corps was begun. Major Hatha- way started things off by dish' ing out a rigid inspection to the corps, with special regard to the personal appearance of the cadets and the appearance of their rifles. After personal inspection, several companies gave "exhibition" drills, went through calisthenics, or performed any other military movement which the Major or- dered. At noon Thursday, things were running smoothly. What si great day for the "Pish" was April Fool's Day. They took advantage of their opportunity to the very limit, and rumors are out that some hazing was done. Unbelievable! Rouged lips and painted cheeks marred or im- proved the faces of many of our seniors, with rolled-up trousers, aprons and ribbons the order of the day. A great day it was, but, as was muttered by hundreds of upperclassrtien, "There'll come a time." And suddenl...

Flashlight in hand, Sherlock slowly made his way down the hall, hi? trained eye? and ears alert for the slightest movement or sound.

STEPHENVILLE, TEXA8, SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1935 NUMBER 23 "When There*s a Shine on Your Shoes There's Often a Pain Inside" Cadet Says With a grin on his face, Joe shoved the money that lie had received in the letter from home. He could enjoy a week-end ill plea- sure for once. He went to town on that Saturday afternoon to buy a pair of shoes, for the ones that he now had were very thin. Joe hap- pily paid the clerk and hurried to his room with the box under his arm to prepare for the pre-arran- ged Saturday night date for the show. Then there was the bath, a shave, and the donning of the uni- form before 6:45, Whistling: at his work, Joe put on hia new shoes and admired them for a few mo- ments. He straightened the black tie just under his chin, and the white shirt threatened to choke him before he put on his blouse. The cadet slicked his hair back like a mule and gave himself the "once over" before the mirror. His feet began to bum from the tight- fitting boats. Very...

Hound Elliott's big moment is still down Baylor way. Don't get ideas, little girl. And so Tarleton goes "What's the Reason I'm Not Pleasing You" crazy. Sometimes these things just kinda happen, and we can't do anything about it. Who it is that isn't large, sorta silly-like, tried to make two chumps at the same time —and came out on the small end of the deal. Take it from me, somebody is married around here on the Q. T. and I'm going to find out who 'tis. To be perfectly frank—the dirt- iest thing around here is the wea- ther. Flash: Ray (H.U.L.) Austin is the cause of wonderment for the week. In he ambles without the usual Sanimie Casbeer on the proper arm. And the little lady aforestated enters with another. 'Tis no less than a break-up of our favorite romance.

PAGE FOUR THE J-TAC .4 -f 4- #■ ■¥ DRAMATIC DIIXY-DALLY The Night Is Young Metro turns out this latest. Ramon Novarro hit—well, may- be it isn't a hit, but it is a nice job. As usual—this musical comedy has a plot that features a hand- some prince in love with a com- moner, but forced to marry roy- alty. This Novarro film pleases both the eye and ear and is backed by an able crew of comedians— Edward Everett Horton, Charles Butterworth, Una Meckel, and Herman Bing. The scene ia Vien- na, with the hero as an archduke and Evelyn Laye a ballet dancer. She joins him at the palace to help him cover up another romance of which his emperor disapproves. They naturally fall in love and conduct a comic affair that is par- ticularly amusing, Cecelia Parker, Kay English, Christian Rub, and Charles Judds are excellent in their smaller roles. Sidelight: Evelyn Laye slipped off with Frank Lawton, who play- ed hookey from "David Copper- field," and the two were married. This didn't make Evelyn's ro...

Placards and signs are in evidence all over the campus, each telling you to support either Jack Smith's party or Rosa Smi- ley's party. Joint chapel Wednes- day gave the two leaders the chance to laud their respective can- didates, and to introduce them to the student body. Whoever wins, when the smoke of battle has cleared, a good time will have been had by all. The Tarleton chorus had a big day this Friday, singing at East- land, Breckenridge, and Mineral Wells. And it was one tired bunch that arrived in Stephenville Fri- day night, having traveled some 200 miles during the day. Easter holidays over, the next big days to look forward to are the 5th and 6th of May, when Par- ents' Day will be observed—also the May Fete, chapel programs, etc. Then in one leap after that, school -will be out,...

JINGLES FOUR BILLIONS; POET DIES: NEW HOME FOR ART Supreme Court Watches Mending Exhibition; Doll House Starts World-Wide Travels With |4,880,000,000 jingling in his pockets, President Roosevelt promises to stand pat for the larg- est single appropriation ever made to aid in relief work. The Presi- dent enjoys jingling this little sum, too. for it took congressmen some two and a half months to decide affirmatively about the new bigger and better bread line. It is Mr. Roosevelt's ambition to use federal funds to create jobs and let individual states fork up direct relief money. Most were willing to let the President do as he pleased, but a nagging few were not so anxious. It was then that the president assured them he would stand responsible for the spending of the money. It took the House four days to be willing to trust the Chief Executive, but the Senate spent 70 days wrangling over small details. to second, and last week, Coach Charles Whiteside pu...

THE J-TAC MGE THREE Professor Arrives In Weatherville Where He Seems Confident of Seclusion The professor who has been missing for several weeks, is still missing, which isn't much light on the subject. But—we have rece- ived a letter from the old gent, making us feel a bit more at ease about his safety. Although the let- ter doesn't make sense in some parts, we shall render it to you as is, and let you draw your own conclusions. The letter is post- marked Weatherville, Texas. It runs as follows: Dear Reporter: Since arriving in Weatherville last Wednesday, I have lived in constant dread that my past would track me down, even here in this town, where a mall from out of Weatherville County is considered a foreigner. "I suppose you have been won- dering about my whereabouts, probably ever since I took off in that sandstorm. Well, after leav- ing you, I walked for three days without a halt, and when I finally stopped for a short rest, I was so jiervous that I walked ten mil^s in my sle...

Had he known it was Di/rothy, he would probably have hurled himself out of the window in a desperate attempt to rescue her, Continuing with Dorothy's ad- ventures, we find her none too happy as she sees herself rapidly advancing to her doom. Each gust of wind and each wave brought her nearer to the cliff's edge, which seemed all too Teady to crunch the frail rowboat. Then, in one terrific smash it was all over. Bits of the boat chopped idly around in the quieter sea at the very base of the cliff. Doro- thy, for the third time that night, lost consciousness as ...
