The same way with our Y.|M.C.A. If nobody complain* about it. It will remain as useless aa it is now, where as if wa offer a little crlticfedi, may it be constructive er destructive, there is a slight possibility th*t con ditions will be changed. Instead of answering our criti cisms the writer contented himself with criticising us personally, and trying to ridicule us—which neither has anything to do with the propo sition at haa^Lfnor answers his pur pose in writ^tth* article, that is, to defend th.- proposition from the Y,M.C.A.*s point of view; the facts are them, open to approval or dis approval, criticism or praise. Fur thermore. h e accused us of stealing the Y’s light globes and magazines, which, besides bring a mistake, again has no beering on the case. / We are awaiting with pleasure a real answer to our first article; not a description of our character, or a criticism of our habits, but an an swer.'and that to the point. ♦ ♦♦♦♦♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ *r- * EXCHANGES A ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ The Sim mow* Br.nd “Damit”, the bull dog mascot Simmons College for JUM past years, has ceased to hew The ior Claaa held the funeral which we«e attended by the six deed students and the fsculty. epitaph, "DAM-IT-He’l Dead” placed aa the tomb stone.

STEWART :: E. H. Vamell, President; L. G. Jones, HO Vice-President; S. G. West, Secretary- Treasurer, and A. P. Lancaster, Ser geant at Arms. Th* object of the Association will include the establishment of * strong tennis club which will be able to com pete wui-e*sfully against State Uni versity, Rice, Baylor and other Texas colleges and universities. One of the first step* to be taken will be the building of other tennis courts. A committee has been appointed which will arrange for the picture of the Club in th* Longhorn. President Bixxell, Mr. Young, Mr. Driver, Mr. Bible, and the Athletic Council and T-Club as well as many members of the faculty have assured the Club that they would give their active support. Inasmuch as avery- one Con<v ted with A. and M. is eligible for membership it is expected that in terest in the Association will increase throughout the year. Mr. Kraft, hsad of the Building and Grounds committee has already star ted plan* for the new courts, and it is expected that they will be finished ‘in time to accommodate a .large num- hcart and soul ate wrapped areti our lives. We can brighten heart or braak it pit is therefore duty of u* fellows here in College t continue the practice of striving uphold those ideals which Moth* has taught us from the time w e knei at her knee. For some of us, only the spirit Mother now exists here on She has gone to that Happier Land but is it not a pleasant, comforting thing to feel that, although absent in person, she always watch-1 es over us and protects us cons tan ly, trusting that by our deeds and lives here, we shall be able to meet Mother over yonder. A most beautiful and appropriate poem has been written by on* pf the instructors of our College, lines that 1 no doubt will b* a benefit to every- | on* who has the opportunity to road them.
