DEDICATION 





To one who by virtue o± his own 

individuality, stimulates his students to 

become independent, original, and penetrating 

in their own thinking and acting; to one who loves 

the beautitul and the best and hates dogmatism, 

cheapness, and bigotry; 

To Wi lliam Paul Davidson 

we dedicate this, the twenty-third volume 
of the Sou'wester, 1928

Whereas, The Reverend Glenn Flinn 
has been Executive Secretary for the past 
three years, and has rendered invaluable 
service to the University in that capacity 
and as Director of the Greater South- 
western Movement; and, 

Whereas, he has lived and worked 
among the students, giving of his time, 
energy and means, and proving himself 
in every way their friend and benefactor; 

Be it therefore resolved, That we, the 
students of Southwestern University, do 
hereby express our appreciation of his 
services, our regret at his departure and 
our sincere hope that he will prosper in 
his new field.

Coach C. M. "Lefty" Edens 

"Lefty" Edens came to Southwestern to rise or fall on his own merit. Two champion- 
ships in football, two championships in baseball and two championships in basketball 
thus far are indicative of his ability as a coach. His comprehensive knowledge of the 
game, his ability to keep his players fighting, and his "never-quit" attitude are some of 
the qualities characteristic of "Lefty." His fighting spirit reaches far beyond his teams 
to the last student in the university.

ATHLETIC COUNCIL 



The Season: The athletic season of '27 started off with the basketball matches. The 
"Pirate five" of the year previous had won the conference championship. Due to the loss 
of some lettermen and to the period required by the coach to teach the new men his sys- 
tem of play, the "five" of '27 started extremely slow. Thus retarded, the Pirates took 
second, concluding a successful season, considering the circumstances. 

Although no official conference championship was awarded in baseball, the Pirates 
ended the season with the best percentage of games won and lost of any conference club, 
and thus were generally recognized as champions. 

Coach Kidd of the cinder path found hard going from the start. Few men returned 
from the championship aggregation of the previous vear, and the track problem was that 
of developing practically a new team. Although no championship was won, the season 
can be looked upon as a rather successful one, considering the little material with which 
the coach had to work. 

The football season of '27 will be remembered as one of the most successful in the his- 
tory of Southwestern. Not only was the championship of the Texas Conference won, but 
the season's results included victories over Baylor and Rice, two of the S. W. C. schools. 
"Lefty" successfuly faced the problem of building up a new line in the absence of the 
old mainstays of the previous year, resulting finally in a veritable Corsair brick wall. 

Extra! Announcing the championship of the Pirate cagers over the Texas Conference, 
making the second basketball championship in three years under "Lefty" Edens' di- 
rection.

All student members of the Y.W.CA. "unite in the desire to realize 
rich and creative life through a growing understanding of God." 

For years, the Y.W.CA. on Southwestern 's campus has tried to 
make effective Jesus' law of love in all student activities. Its purpose 
has been to make adjustments, to help students find real friends, to 
make persons think and act, to help them to take responsibility, to pro- 
mote self-confidence and self-realization and to discover and develop 
individual talents and abilities. Above all, it deepens Christian exper- 
ience and builds and strengthens character.

MASK AND WIG 

Students who have watched the Mask 
and Wig players perform this year will agree 
that they proved themselves worthy of the 
long standing popularity and good reputa- 
tion of this organization. 

Under the able direction of William 
Dwight Wentz, the players produced "The 
Goose Hangs High" on the evening of 
December 15 and repeated it in January. 
The second production, "Lady Winder- 
mere's Fan," appeared on the 8th and 9th 
of March. Mr. Wentz plans to close the sea- 
son with several one act plays.

ot this Society a conference of several Texas universities and colleges was held in George- 
town, February 22, 1922 to plan and effect the organization of the Scholarship Societies 
of Texas. At the last annual meeting of the Council held at Brownwood, February 22, 
1928, the name was definitely fixed as The Scholarship Societies of theSouth,reprerenting 
the extension of the organization outside of Texas. The Council this year conferred the 
presidency of all the chapters for the coming year upon W. P. Davidson.

The Ministerial Association is an organization for the Student Ministers upon the cam- 
pus. It is a band of men looking forward to a common service for the Church and for hu- 
manity, and with these ideals in mind the activities of the Association are so guided as 
to best prepare these men for their particular service. 

This year, members of the Association have preached approximately one hundred 
times in neighboring churches cooperating with the Life Service Band in taking pro- 
grams to the county farm for the poor, the jail, and at the homes of shut-ins. 

Realizing the need of a more effective reading and a more efficient interpretation of 
Scripture from the pulpit, the Association secured Mr. Wentz to direct a class in the 
interpretative study of hymns, religious poetry, and Scripture reading. Such interpreta- 
tion was studied from the standpoint of the speaker and was not a critical interpretation 
of content.

THE MUSIC CLUB 

Myrle Gill President 

Ena Mae Cooke Vice President 

Eleanor Wier Secretary 

Lillian Thompson Programs 



The Music Club made its appearance on the campus this year as an organization to 
associate the interests and activities of the Fine Arts Students, as well as to foster new 
interest and studies pertaining to the field of Music, such as the opera, interpretation, 
current events and biographical sketches about prominent and professional people con- 
nected with music. The meetings of the Club are largely given over to recitals partici- 
pated in by the members. Thus the regularly appointed recitals have been to a degree 
displaced by the new combination recitals at the meetings.

HONOR STUDENTS 

Recognizing that some students are sufficiently interested in their work to guide them- 
selves to a certain extent in their studies and researches, the administrative authorities 
of Southwestern have established the honor student system in which these exceptional 
students may exercise and strengthen this initiative apart from the lock-step svstem of 
education. Optional class attendance enables them to do additional original work. The 
selection of these students is made on the following terms: 

(i) The names of students who are eligible for the Scholarship Society shall be re- 
ported to the Committee on Honor Students by the Registrar as soon as possible after 
the close of each term. 

(2) The heads of departments may recommend to the Committee the names of any 
other students of unusual ability who have not qualified for the Scholarship Society.

SIGMA TAU DELTA 

The Alpha Beta Chapter of the Sigma Tau Delta was established in January of 1927 
at which time it was the largest of the twenty-six chapters in America. Sigma Tau Delta 
is a professional writing fraternity for those eager to master the fine art of expression. Its 
purpose is to foster the creative expression of life in accordance with the ideals of Truth, 
Sincerity, and Design. All members are pledged to produce regularly and contribute to 
The Rectangle, the national organ of the fraternity. 

There are ten degreees available — three for undergraduates and seven for graduates 
and instructors. The rank is determined by academic standing and amount of original 
published material. Several of the members have had works published in well known 
magazines.

These representatives in reality compose two separate and distinct bodies in so far as 
they are concerned with matters pertaining to inter-fraternity and inter-sorority inter- 
ests. Thus they regulate rushing activities, qualifications of pledges, social functions as 
well as serve as the medium of understanding between the various groups. 







PI KAPPA DELTA 



The national organization of Pi Kappa Delta was founded in Southwestern as the 
Alpha Chapter in Texas and under the supervision and direction of Mr. Wen tz has as- 
sumed and maintained a position worthy of the truth it signifies, "The art of persuasion, 
beautiful and just." 

It is the purpose of this organization to stimulate progress and to promote interest 
jn intercollegiate oratory, debate, and public speaking.

THE CHOKER 



Foreword 



Folks as you have already guessed this is the Choker. This section has been written 
with nothing in mind but fun, and I am hoping that vou will take it in the same manner, 
tor I have no grudge against anyone. You have done things and maybe I've seen you; 
you've done things and maybe you've told me about them; you've done things and 
maybe I've only heard through gossip; and then, too, maybe you've only wished you 
could do certain things. With this means of gathering material I have had lots of fun. 
I'm passing it on to vou. If it is a lie, brand it as such; if it is partly true, say so; if it is 
only imagination, I'm sorry. But remember that I cannot write things like this without 
a great deal of exaggeration. On the other hand, if you have been found out don't gripe 
at me too much, 'cause you know there might be something I didn't put in print. 



The Choke 



'28 



First comes the awarding of prizes. The championship necking honors of this campus 
are unanimously given to Captains Hodges and Lehmberg. For rockhead fame we sub- 
mit to you Martha Reese, Vera Gafford, Bernard McCord, Freshman Guthrie, Shorty 
Dowell,Monk Jancik, Edwin Mason, George Rankin Pace, Adelaide Robinson, Loraine 
Hebert, and Bessie Perrin. 

CORN BREAD ARISTOCRATS: (The worst we've ever seen) 
Ruth Sadler, Mary Lee Stewart, Jean Smith, Imogene Sutton, Tula Lee Stone, Ayres 
Compton, George Keene, Erette Reese, Melvin White, Mikulik, Fat A. Fowler, Eunice 
O'Hara. (Miss Stewart and Miss Sadler tie for first place while Miss Smith and Miss 
Sutton tie for second honors. Prizes will be given all four winners. 

Congratulations to this long, tall skinny Margaret Barnett. She has dodged the 
Choker. I ain't got a thing on her all year, but that doesn't apply to the late date she 
and Grady had in summer school of 1927. The conscientious Mrs. Culberson was the 
goat but never did know it. Margaret nearly got caught but she didn't, so it's congratu- 
lations again. 



Between the winter and spring term, there was a party pulled in Rockdale that was a 
whiz. Perry-Rountree, Moet-Loewenstein and Meekins-Rank Outsider composed the 



entire cast. You see, I'd never known if they hadn't come back here blowin' about it. 
Maybe some dav folks like these will learn to keep their traps closed. 

It's darn funny to me why little Baby Face gave Joe Humphrey the gate. Looks like 
she didn't know her paper dolls, 'cause she's been running around with that Suddath 
guv ever since. 

One night it sure was funny how the cohorts of J. Y. Gates and Harold Graves were 
smoking cigarettes and drinking ice water. The second stoop west outfit ot good old 
Mood Hall furnished protection from the wintry weather. There was a song in every 
swallow. 

The registrar's opinion of the various fraternities. 

Kappa Sigmas — Hot Stuff, wonderful boys. — Give 'em cigars. 

Phi Delta Theta — Good bovs, too, but not cigar raters. 

Kappa Alpha- — Oh well, not so good. 

Pi Ka A's — Oscar, have 'em inspected. They're a bunch of unconventionals. 

If you want to whip the Sigs, ask them what recommendations they had on Newsom 
before thev pledged him. Ask why he was not pledged at Washington Lee and why he 
was not pledged at Texas and why, if this chapter is so darn proud, he was pledged over 
here above the protests of the worthy brethren in Austin. 

You know I'll bet Lois Williams, Alice Hitchcock, the Brewer girl, Sunny Sanders, 
Jenette Gray and Wava Martin sure wish they could spend the winter in Bryan, because, 
you know, these Aggies will date anything. I did have Alice Hargreaves with this bunch 
but she and Goree seem to be holding hands pretty regular now. 

The big attraction at the basketball games for all the gals is none other than the 
shapely form of Sue Brannen. More power to you Sailor. 










The Woman's Bldg. 

Spring Term 



Dear Sally: I told you not to go to that there girl's school. Gee Whizz! This is a keen 
place, I've had lots of fun down here all year. We got Sorritys. I don't guess you know 
what that is, but a Sorrity is a huncha girls who get together and have truth meetings 
about their dates, and besides a Sorrity girl getz to wear a pin with pearls in it. I joined 
the Phi Mu's cause Lois Williams is one and I thought I wouldn't change so much while 
I am in College if I ran with her, cause she's just like me. But we've got some other kinda 
girls, too, Ilfrey, Becker, and Newton are the ones who date the most, and thev sure 
catch thunder in the truth meetings cause Alice Hitchcock is so suspicious. Aston and 
Kirkwood are about the best we got but thev sure are silly. Tommy Lou has to run 
everything. 

Sally, there is the Zetas here too, thev are different from us, all they think about is 
dates and trying to train their pledges to be a bit wild, and noisey. They think they are 
pirty smart and up-town, but they are such a bunch of Dumb Doras thev don't get by 
with half as much as they think thev do. All of 'em live by this, "There is No Hill for a 
Stepper," this is specially true of Smith, Caton, Murphy, Rountree, Mitchell, Stone and 
Hodges. Some of 'em even go so far as to get "Frenchv" to give his moonlight impres- 
sion of "The Dance of the Blue Stripes." These are the girls who got bumped and 
bumped hard by the Tri Delts and K.A.'s this year. Thev sure took it hard. 

Speakin' of Tri Delts, well that is the name of another girls club. They appear to be a 
little tamer than the Zetas; but that is because they have Fox, Sanders, Karbach, Ayers 
and Sadler to keep their reputation for flat tires. However last fall these flat tires came 
forth with a complete reversal of policy. "We'll be as Wild as the Zetas, if it takes two 
years." My Goodness you had ought to see what all they pledged, I don't think they'll 
have to wait two years. Just the other day I heard John Rowntree say he'd as leave have 
a Tri Delt date nowadays as a Zeta anytime. These girls had an awful hard time puttin ' 
up a beauty, all their purty girls like Nancy and Adelaide were only pledges, and they 
had to pick an initiate, and the one they picked was a complete failure. 

The Alpha Delts are another bunch, they are kinda hard to understand, cause you are 
liable to have your pledge broken at any time and your roommate initiated. All because 
of Jessie Davis, you know she has a big ear for gossip. However some of these girls are 
nervy and will do what they please, and as a result right now half of them don't know 
what the other half is doing. Another thing I don't like about this bunch is that they run 
after the Phis, thar's one bunch I can't stand. There hasn't been a Phi Mu in that Phi 
house all year. The Alpha Delts' weakest sisters are Fly, Spencer, Cruikshank, Smith and 
Wagon. Liz Tarver is their loud speaker. 




Well Sal, I sure hope vou will change schools next year and come on down here. With 
your experience in High School, and a year in a girls college you had ought to he enough 
speed to make a new crop Tridelt or a typical Zeta. 

Yours, for co-education, 



Fimu Susie 



FRATERNITIES 




Phi Delta Theta: These are the 
boys down by the railroad track 
who pledged themselves to this pic- 
ture. The scoop gives you the key- 
note to their purpose and it's not 
hard to say that the entire chapter 
runs true to form. The animal's 
head is what they try to hide but 
can't. Their scholarship is evi- 
denced by their membership in 
Kappa Beta Phi. (The sotz inter- 
fraternity.) They also keep up a 
keen interest in crap shooting 
while to the unsuspecting student 
body, so they think, they try to 
get over in politics, but they are 
like the broken down race horse. 
All you can say for their success in 
the elections is, "They also ran." 
The entire chapter devotes its 
spare time in keeping Suddath in 
school, what for, I don't know. It 
looks to me like it's a good chance 
to get rid of him. That J. A.'s head up there is to convey the impression of Bell, Smith 
and Fowler. To the dice-shooters' detail and gangfighters' union for out of town dances 
belong Young, Andrews, Brownlea, Kurth and Clements. Their politicians are repre- 
sented by Fox, Compton, Guggolz and Gafford. 




Pi Kappa Alpha: These are the boys that rate deuce high with the faculty and every- 
body else. The reason is the presence of five big Senior deuces among them, Woodson, 
Lowry, Dashiell, Hallmark, and Armstrong are the boys, and if you can get any good out 







of that bunch, I 'd like to know what it 
is. Another thing wrong with this out- 
fit is their inability to keep off social 
probation and on national prohibi- 
tion. They pulled a big brawl the first 
of the year and they've been in hot 
water ever since. Sheik Lee and Mee- 
kins are two of the boys and Sheik is 
famous on the campus as a swell dres- 
ser even though he doesn't comb his 
hair, while Monkey Meekins gets his 
publicity for his immediate infatua- 
tion for new girls. Moet, Stevens and 
Dies are their contribution to the 
Zetas. The front of their house looks 
like the junk yard of a second hand 
automobile dealer. But two things 
vou can say for them are their leader- 
ship in studies and their love for the Dean and their love for their next door neighbor. 




Kappa Alpha: Kappa Alpha's are 
what belongs to Poppa Joe Allen. They 
are generally considered genuine south- 
ern H.A. 's. The ambition of this bunch is 
three-fold, baseball, tri-delts and corn lik- 
ker. They do well in all. The big trouble 
at present is raising enough money to 
pay the rent on time each month, and 
yet they brag around the campus that 
they're going to build a house and be 
stable like the other three fraternities. 
Huh, the only house they got or ever will 
have is the baseball dugout. They meet 
there every afternoon. Allen and Rown- 
tree are the rush captains for the Tri- 
Delts, and high powered they are too. 
Look how they helped Odessa to pledge 
Tri-Delta. All the rest of the outfit com- 
pose their barleycorn club. This phase of Kappa 




Alpha manifests itself at the back 



tables of the alcove, most notable among them being Lawrence, Thomas and Wads- 
worth. Their one redeeming feature is the presence of Lewis Warinner on the Honor 
Council. 



Kappa Sigma: One man in George- 
town says he lives between Hell and 
and the railroad track, and I guess he 
is right, because these are the boys 
who brag they are hell raisers. They 
attempt this reputation even though 
it costs them the presence of a couple 
of pledges. Their shield is almost self- 
explanatory. Nellie Gone is their 
present condition in more ways than 
one. While they have six brilliant stars 
in their line-up, thev never mention 
but five. This is especially true when 
company is around. They extend 
themselves to the utmost to keep Red 
Harris out of the house or out of 
sight. Thev must not be so proud of 
Little Red. These boys are well heeled 
on faculty protection. They have a 
brother who is house father. The 
Zetas are what thev try to get over 
with and Bill Dickson, but Burch and 
Lippy both mean right by Nell so we 
won't cast any reflection on them. 
Blackburn is their offer to Varsity — burnt-offering to Varsity. 

Freshmen, and they alwavs will be — John Rowntree, Skeet Simmons, Bill Grav, Hog 
Hodges, Harvev Durst, Geo. Rankin Pace, Lewis Meekins and Red Harris and Kurth. 

Some folks give this Brick Lowry lots of credit for working at the garage all night — - 
Well, I happen to know that Ole Brick would be willing to pay five or ten dollars a week 
to get to work down there. 

In Gatesville it's just plain Hazel Sanders, but here it has to be Miss Hazle Saunders. 
College did that for her. 

Who gave Walter Woodson the razz, the axe, and the merry Ha, Ha? Well I'm not 
calling any names, but he married the girl. 











TO THE CO-ED 



I've had my times in college, 

I've played, I've lost, and I've won. 
I've been in affairs with Co-eds, 

I've come out faithful to none. 
You give 'em the rush, you wiggle and squirm, 

Because you're caught in their line; 
And you walk away with words that curse, 

You'll do it every time. 

Now I'm not the lad to sit and brag 

Of things I've learned, costing dear, 
But I can say this, there are things I know — 

And I'll remember for many a year. 
The Co-eds are a funny lot, 

There are times when you doubt your own eyes; 
But the thing that hurts and the thing that cuts. 

Is to have to believe in their lies. 

Now I was a Freshman to begin with, 

I'd never been taught to roam — 
I lost my head over a chubby blonde, 

And she caused me to hobo home. 
Hot as a fox I'll tell you, 

And I, — well, I was only sixteen; 
But ere I got rid o' that huzzy 

I was fleeced, and really fleeced clean. 



Next fall I was back, — "No Wimmen for Me," 

Athletics were taking my time. 
But, "IT" came by, and flirted, — free; 

Three dates and I was over the line. 
I was warned by the boys — I believed them not, 

We continued our little game - 
And after awhile with reluctance I saw, 

Three others were playing the same. 




^nr 



TFR 




A secret grass widow was the next one, 

She had money and power good store; 
I thought she would know, but she didn't know- 

And I was in trouble once more. 
Her form and blue eyes rated marriage, 

But she was fed up on that; 
So today we harbor a secret — 

A secret you never will get. 

Then a brown eyed girl of the college town, 

She looked like a blessing to me. 
I played her so — and you may know 

She's married now, you see. 
I've met her man, I've drunk his beer, 

A likeable chap, I'd say. 
But a high sign here and a high sign there, 

Have shown that she'd run away. 

So I 've had my times in college, 

I've lost more times than I've won. 
In places the music was heavy, 

In places my words were a pun — 
So I sit with this consolation, 

That when the Maker has his say 
He'll judge all fair and equal, 

And the others, too, will pay. 



Little hatchet face Allbritten goes to the yell leader tryouts and struts his stuff, and 
everybody wished him well 'cause they thought it would be his demise as yell leader. But 
that was not the half of it. He tells the Executive Committee that he will be the Rah, 
Rah boy again next year, in fact he did his own nominating, campaigning and voting 
act. Didn't even leave the room for the committee to ballot as they saw fit. From the 

jolt that guy got last vear it looks like he'd get to outa this place, 'cause as J. Y. 

says, or as he would say it, "Hatchet Face doesn't rate." 

During the Easter Holidays I noticed that Miss Kirk is still going strong. Boy, if she 
was any better in her younger days than she is now, she was a whiz. She had Sr. Durantes 
dedicate to her an Obligato, Mr. Dozier directing traffic in the parlors, Prof. Davidson 
giving his away-from-home smile, and Dr. Tinsley policing the dining hall. That's all 
I saw. I wish I had that much "Come hither" in my eye; I'd get over too. 




Boy, if this Marianna Murphy ain't a vamp, I've never seen one. What she ain't got 
she don't need, and if vou don't believe it, look at results. On one date she came in with 
the pin of a proud Kappa Sigma; soon that was over and she took out one of the little 
Pi K A Freshmen (Stevenson); that lasted till Thomas, down to de K.A. house got 'er, 
and then she decided a freshman couldn't blow in her ear anymore, so Steve got ditched 
and at this writing Thomas is high man. When Thomas gets through with her, she is 
readv to eat breakfast at the Alcove. 

Talk about vour social downfalls; well, look at the one Watts and Tolleson got. In the 
fall thev went over big, and bragged about it. Thought they'd keep a note book on the 
boys, give them a behaviouristic rating. Well, that got out and some of the bovs put 
together a few notations, and soon they had crumbed themselves. 

The policy of this section is for more and thicker buttered toast at the little store for 
less money. 

The Barbs pulled a good one on themselves this vear in the student elections. Thev 
decided to put up Walter Pyle for a job on one of the papers next year. Well, they had to 
have someone to run against him, so they nominated Red Banks. There is where they 
made their mistake, 'cause Red darn nigh ran off with the race, and the big Barb Bosses 
had to get high behind to put their man over by a narrow margin. 

Barney Guggo'z may be the manager of this book, but that doesn't keep me from 
having you ask him about a certain trip he made to San Marcos. You looked bad on that 
one, Barney. 

Hall and Lindell, the cocks of the walk in the Speech Arts Department; well, they 
kinda got it poured on 'em when they tangled up with them Arkansaw boys. They just 
refused to be "Lord Windemere'ed" that's all. 

Sometimes you hear about close horse races; well, how about the way White and 
Elliott are coining down the home stretch in the Education Derby? If that's not a neck- 
to-neck finish, I don't believe you will ever see one. They are both Seniors. 

Avres Compton has certainlv got a distaste for A. & M. I think it's because Mc- 
Donald's best boy friend is an Aggie. 



Read this and hear that B'g Bounding Ding Dong Bell failed to get over with his 
hard-boiled act on the Night Cop. He had to leave a sandwich setin' on the counter of 
Edwards and take a walk around to the jail, but before he let 'em lock the door he paid 
off the $12.70. Laundry went up the next day. 






The night of February 4th, Mrs. Bridgers had a Hawkshaw call to the kitchen. She 
tried locking the pajama-clad gals in, but the back door was open and they got out. Out- 
side they nearly froze, but they had some clothes thrown down, and finally managed to 
climb the water pipe to the top of the Fine Arts Building. They all made it but Kitty, and 
they darn nearly missed gettin' her up. For your information, Miss Kirk, they were 
Aletha Gardner, Marye Wynne, Kitty Brooks, and Carrie Wade. 

Lois Thornton and Chief Ballew — Chief must 'a talked, Fve noticed Jack Whitworth 

trying to get over, too. 

A Story in Vers Libre — Bill Dickson at Church 
"Oh, this terrible cough." 

(Exit) 
Nellie Gone to the rescue; 
A lonely spot, at ease and 
at each other. 

Do you remember the day Doc Tinsley told the joke in chapel about this day of fast 
steppin' Grandmas? Well, The Choker noticed all the girls stare straight ahead while 
Army Armstrong, John Rowntree, Freshman Monk and Unk Young almost went into 
convulsions. 



BARBS: This is beyond a doubt the strongest fraternity on the campus, and the 
beauty part about it is that it is co-educational. When they want to, it's a simp'e matter 
to hold a caucus and get over anything. Up at the Annex it is thoroughly put in the 
heads of all freshmen possible that it is disgraceful to be seen in a frat house, then down 
to Mood Hall about the same thing is taught. All this, you understand, comes from the 
Big Bosses, and I don't know exactly who they are but White, Two Jacksons, Graves, 
Gates, Lehmberg and Brannen would not be a bad guess. The effects of leadership like 
that is nothing short of hazardous to the fraternities.

Qive 9 Er 3\(ew Smoothness, Speed 

and Power with Humble ^hCotor Oil 

When the "bus" starts eating gas, groans when she sees a hill, and 
squeaks out loud now and then from her under-trimmings — there's no 
getting away from it, she needs Humble Motor Oil. 

Steer her to the next "first aid" station you see — you'll know it by 
the Humble Signs. Ask the "doc" for the particular Humble Oil suited 
to the ol' bus' age and breed; and give her a shot or two where she 
needs it. Then feel her come to life. 

Perks up and sips away as lithe as a coyote. Humps over the 
prairies. Laughs at the hills. Takes you where you want to go, and back 
again in a jiffy. 

Humble Motor Oils are made from the finest Gulf Coast Crudes. They 
have the guts to stand the long grinds like a five-miler and finish strong. 

If vour bus is a new one, with one of the mile-a-minute high compres- 
sion motors under the hood, you need Humble Motor Oil more than 
ever. It's as tough as a pinto. 

To be sure you are getting it, buy only where you see the Humble 
Signs.

The minister with business training

The farmer becomes a stock raiser and a 
director in the local bank. 

The girl in the office becomes a partner

holds an opportunity for every man com-

We point with no little pride to a vast 
number of successful men in business who 
began their courses with us a few years ago 
on exactly the same basis to which we in-

knocking at the doors of those who are
