“Democracy,” the president of
TCU said, “declares that man has
inalienable rights. It says that
ordinary people have the capacity

they do attempt to govern them

be made when the people do ac

Too Wild
Dog Dislikes
Campus Life
By Art McMutt
This is probably the first article
by me you’ve ever read. But that's
logical, because there ain’t too
many of us dogs that can type,
‘specially us of the all-American
In fact, I’m the first dog I
knowed of that has ever writ any
thing. But scratch my ticks if I
can set around and watch what’s
happening’ around here and not
bark a little ’bout it.
I’ve been around this here cam
pus a good while now. I knowed
the ol’ Rev a long time before she
died, and I don’t mind if I boast a
little here and say that I knows
just about ever dog around here
by his howl.
Best For Meeting
I dare say I’m the best on the
campus as far meetin’ critters
goes. The new Rev is pretty good
‘bout wipping-out, but she hain’t
got my strong grip.
Wall, gettin’ back on the sub
ject I started on every y’ar ’bout
this time things got as upset as I
was when the dog-catcher got after
me back in ’46. With school-l’arn-
in’ classes gettin’ turned out and
everything, all you humans are
gettin’ as wild as a bunch of tom
cats havin’ a singing party on the
back fence.
I was a wanderin’ through the
corps area this afternoon inspectin’
fire plugs when some youngster
exploded a fire cracker under me
that sounds louder than the can
nons did when they were shot off
in front of Ross Hall. It scared me
so bad I hain’t been able to wag
my tail since then.
If another deg had done that,
I’d a bit him. I had more since
! than that before I graduated from
the dog pound. To do such a thing
would seem as bad to me as my
tieing a tin can to one of my best
buddies’ tail. Slap my muzzle if I
don’t believe you humans think
completely different than us dogs.
Wall, after my hairs laid back
down like there supposed to and
my wits settled, I decided to go to
somebody’s room in one of the
dormitories and see if they
wouldn’t let me sleep in their
roommate’s bed.
I started to follow a bunch of
you all in the door when all of a
sudden somebody on the second

Worst Example
Editors, The Battalion:
We do not know who was re
sponsible for the recent front page
story in The Battalion, so we will
leave it to your discretion where
in the fault lies. (In reference to
Dr. Asbury’s recent mishap.)
That specific story was one of
the worst examples of news report
ing that we have ever had the
misfortune to read.
It is inconceivable to think that
all your staff are endowed with
such petty, narrow minds, as to
allow such trivia to be planted.
