TARLETON SPIRIT ; I don't supofjo there are two doz- en students here in school who , wei'e here year before last. Those who were here remember the won- j derful pep the Tarleton student body was capable, of putting out, : and did put out, at every pep meet- j ing and ball game. It rose to a I great height reaching its highest i volume iWhen Tarleton went in to play the championship game of | football on her own field; When ; she lost, a great calm seemed to I come over the body of' students like the lull in a storm. But the ! pep was not dead; it never did die and; never will die. It is just ; as much alive^now as it ever was. The pep of this year is the same old pep but in somewhat different form, for, what. student is the same as he was then, thinks the same thoughts and has the same attitude toward life as: he did then? Individuals must either go back- ward or forward, for it Is impos- sible to remain at: a standstill. And so as the years go by, pro gress is made, and with progr...

LARGE CROWD TO ATTEND SECOND ANNUAL RODEO ^ (Continued from page 1) will be used to' send the college stock judging team to Port Worth and A. & M, The admission will be 25c to all. There are plenty of comfortable seats arranged so that every act can be seen. The audience will be guard- ed so that the animals will not be in 'fear of an accident of any kind. All the animals to, be used are the best that can be obtained. A bunch of real broncs have been rounded up that furnish a thrill, not only to the rider, but to the audience as well. Such local talent as Jake Hammond, Wilkerson* the Orton brothers, A. B. Year wood, and many others will show some of the fanciest riding seen only in the Wyoming rodeos. This includes fancy swan-diving, double somer- saults and other "quite natural" stunts. One feature of the rodeo will be tfie riding wrestling match.. This is a scream. Don't miss it. Listen!

When your soul goes out to. the. team you love, And your heart cries out to win, You will be paid at last for all you have spent, For victory will come- in the end. —Anon. MY HOBBY My hobby differs, I suppose, in ftiany ways from that of the ma- jority of the people in the world about us. There are some who make play out of work. Some pre- fer to ride, others like to swim, while many had rather play ten- nis or golf; but for my part, give me plenty of clean, white paper, and let me write themes, on sub- jects which I know very little or nothing about. There ; are two decided advan- tages of choosing subjects from the class mentioned- above. They afford a wonderful opportunity for originality and make it possible for one to run on at random with- out being hindered; by trivial rhe- torical requisites, such as the con- nection of thought. The mind is free to wander into any field at its will or no't to wander at all. This latter condition erases the laslj possible connection of theme ...

"Bed" was a little bit late but we are glad he didn't miss the1 "other" train. We can't see why a fellow would miss a train in his own home town, but frmn the let- ters we've seen addressed to Am- arillo, y/e have a hunch that Camp- bell just didn't see the train as it came through town.

It is therefore only be- cause of constant pleading on the part of my denoted followers that I have consented to write upon so tedious a subject, yet a subject in which I am well read. Evolution is a matter ofj grave importance to our land. It is hav- ing a wonderful influence on our impulses and our ultimate suc- cess; or failure. Men are gradual- ly succumbing to it and are wan- ing away, from the idpa. that their forefathers once hung by their elongated. appendages and threw cocoanuts- which are now selling at the corner grocery for fifty cents. It is gradually undermin- ing our institutions and is becom- ing like the crossword puzzle,, a hidden wolf gnawing at the vitals of our nation. Theologists and pedagogues are becoming greatly aroused over the and the State Militia may have to be called out to quell the riot. Yet I have known some people to -eat their breakfast ...
