ON YE TAHLETON "On Ye Tarleton'' . means niore to ia Tarletonite than any- thing else. It's great to be able to stand when it is played and to be able to comprehend its full meaning. The Tarleton spirit can never die. The "Tarleton fight" will always be carried on to win more honor and glory for the school. Our Football men have worked unsparingly; they have denied themselves many pleasures; from early' morning- until late at night for three weeks they have worked, work- ed, worked. Friday the team leaves for A. & M. The odds are against them, but they have an' excep- tionally good chance to bring back "the bticon-" They cannot do it unless they realize and know we are backing them body ^nd soul.

NUMBER 2 THE CROSS DRUG STORE WE SAVE YOU THE VARSITY SHOP DOWN TOWN MONEY NEAR CAMPUS METHODIST RECEPTION A SUCCESS , Thursday evening, September 18, 1924, will long be remem- bered by those who attended the Senior Epworth League recep- tion. The evening was given over to games, jokes, laughter, music and "ice breaking." Upon entering the-church the guests were served delicious punch. Then each boy was tied to some beautiful maiden—and was supposed to try to get loose. From all appearances some were more than well pleased with their bondage because when the time came for the "ice breaking" march, many couples were yet untied. The "ice breaker" march was a source of much laughter.and jgetting acquainted. Following the march a trying race took place. Hebron and Weaver were each given an old suit case in which there was ladies' ap- parel. They were to dress, raise their parasol and race across the church to se...

1 .DOINGS OF THE DUMP Life in the dormitory is very unsettled as yet. The giris' time has been given over, entirely to changing and exchanging furni ture, room mates, and rooms. The girls who were here last year are surely missed, but their places are being filled rapidly by new girls. Alpha and Hesta are the only last year girls staying upstairs, but they can't get lone- some for the frequent visits of the chape rone. Vencie Laney, Charlie Brandt and Annie Walton are again oc cupying the lower floor, and— Oh yes, Mary Nell Rea, but possibly Forney knows she is back. , . ■ The dormitory girls wish to challenge the annex girls to a talking contest between Fae Bur- gamy of the Dump and Mar- ' garet Mingus of the Annex. The date of the contest will be pub- lished later. We should like to know if the chaperone was hearing things Friday night, or did some one really fall off of the ironing board? Likewise we should like to know why she hears so many sounds as of weeping (especially at ni...

The Bellevue Club had some difficulty in organizing Sunday afternoon. Lee Hays was chosen honorary and temparary chairman of the meeting, then the voting com- menced. Yeah—that's what that noise was you heard over there. Everything went off or at least nearly everything -—until Brents and Nickey double crossed the bunch. Last yearj there were six members present—six presi- dents were elected. This time Nickey received two votes, thereby killing the ambitions of the other members. (Per sonally, we think it a crook ed deal and wish to say that in our opinion, it was a case of pure Suctkm.) After cast ing the ballots, the meeting adjourned in a rather crude fashion to room 13 where we proceeded to pass by and of- fer the president congratula iions—and "service stripes with our Sam Brownes.

NUMBER 5, THE CROSS DRUG STORE DOWNTOWN WE APPRECIATE THE TRADE OF FACULTY AND STUDENTS THE VARSITY SHOP NEAR CAMPUS TARLETON RANDOLPH Dr. Andrews Preaches To Tarleton Students Last Wednesday evening was desig- nated as College night at the Baptist church. The meeting had been in progress some ten days and it was the desire of the pastor, Rev, S. B. Cul pepper, to have the college- students attend the services in a body. A pro gram had been planned and was car- ried out, that would especially appeal to college students and the sermon preached at this hour by Rev. An- drews was one of the best we have heard in some time. At seven o'clock the crowd began gathering and soon the lower floor was filled with Tarleton students. This place had been reserved for them, while the balcony was filled by the town people. At seven-thirty a very beautiful and pleasing program was rendered by the Tarleton Military Band. In his introductory ...

JIMMIE "Jimmie." Not a sound, "Jimmie," Not a sound. "James." Still no sound. "James Fenimore Cooper." Just as this last call issued from the back door, Jimmie got up, pulled his old dirty, gray cap low on his head, and walked reluctantly away from the gang in the vacant lot. James Fenimore Cooper, aged eight years, was known as the leader of the neighborhood gang. Unlike the origi- nal James Fenimore Cooper, he show- ed none of those finer qualities, such as studying and writing. In fact, he did everything that was opposite to them. Mrs. Cooper, however, had the highest ambitions for her only son and felt that some day he would be as great as his well-known ancestor. She knew also that if hi8 mop of shin- ing, red, tousled hair cquld be seen in the center of a crowd of boys, some- thing would be happening sooner or later. _ This morning Jimmie had been tell- ing them, "The Rough Riders," a thrilling Indian story.

DR. ANDREWS PREACHES TO TARLETON STUDENT BODY (Continued from page 1) most serious thoughts and without . ambition, there is only the dismal life in. the swamp. The ideal is of build- ing of character. I am not perfect / but I mean to be perfect some day. The end of achievement is the end of progress. . . . "There are three verbs in human life. One is the verb to have. Man is built so as to have grasping equip- ment. He has two hands to hold and to get. It is alright to get and it is alright to hold. It is alright to grasp, if it is for a good purpose. However, this is not of the highest, Tlwre is no wrong in wealth; no virtue in pov- erty. "We are not going to Heaven if we are poor, nor to Hell if we are rieh. It doesn't matter at all. Wealth is not the best sometimes. To have and to hold is not the highest in life. The other two verbs are to do and to be. Your character is the index to your life. Rather to do than to own. If you have a good character then it is no matter what you ...
