SOPHIE THE RIVER'S SECRET (A Short Story) By Miitoit Moffitt Spring finds the H. J. C. Athletes literally "up on their toes" with pep to put the alma mater out in front. Trackmen of Junior College participated in the Rice Invitation Track Meet at Rice Field, Saturday, March Then she er mouth, an' felt it all slimy wher' th' snail hed gone down. Turnin' to the' rooster, she remarked, "I never knowed stewed okry kud crawl aroun' on th' groun' befor.'! Wal, thet ain't got much to do with my degree in filosofie, but th' ole hen hed th' rite- idee. Heer's a horibul little thing that min's me av one passaj in "Tresur Hand" that gos somethin' like this: "Fifteen men on a dead man's chest Yo, ho, ho, for a bottle of rum." Wal, az I wuz sayin'( here it is: I "Rattle his bones over the stones! He's only a pauper whom nobody Nine students prepared to enter the meet for the school but only four were able to take part in the event. Leonard Davis, Jimmy Moulden, Wil lard Nesmith, and Jimmy Oliver formed the J. C. one-mile relay team. I Wonder whul's a pauper? Mus' be Foremost among the other contenders j som kinduva bum.

John Tarlelon won the event when it established a new record of 3:30.5 for the Junior College mile relay. The old record of 3:31.2 was made by Terrell Prep, in 1928. Dave Fur man, Edmundo Gonzales, Robert Branham, Cecil DeLaney, and Eugene Stoke I y who were scheduled for the shot-put, discus, low hurdle, and pole vault were unable to take part as those events were not open to the Junior College class. Leonard Davis attracted favorable tention from sport authorities when he forged ahead to overcome a handicap of 30 to 40 yards. Several other track meets in the near future are in view, according to Coach A. W. French. New practice schedules for the Junior College baseball nine began Monday, according to Coach A. W. French. The team will train on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings at West End Park and on Thursday and Friday at' Hermann Park. The squad which has been in training for several weeks first used West End Park as a practice field. After a series of high school games made regular use of the park impossible, the team turned to Hermann Park. Now both diamonds will be used. The team is not a member of any league but has a number of games with commercial and other amateur teams in view. St, Mary's Academy has already asked for a game. Perfessor Vanzee is always talk in' about somethin' thet remin's me uv this: "The pomp of heraldry, the pride of power; AH that beauty, or wealth e'er gave; Await alike the inevitable hour: The paths of glory lead but to the grave." Perfessor Vanzee seems to hev thet on his min'. Wal, I gues it's best to be thinkin' about things like thet—« day it'll be arrived' already, an' won't hev any more time to plan 1 Poor Fish A man suffering from an excess of stimulant and tottering preceptibly, arrived home as the clock was striking three. After carefully removing his, shoes, he tiptoed softly to the door. He slipped his key in and was half way ■ down the hall, when he upset the I gold-fish bowl, causing it to fall with a resounding crash. Friend wife was awakened by the noise and appeared at the head of the stairs, "John, what on earth are you doing?" she called sharply. "I'll teach these bloomin' goldfish to snap at me," said John. "No action, whether foul or fair, Is ever done but it leaves somewhere A record written by fingers ghostly As a blessing or a curse." Thet don't rime perzackly, but it's pretty good, anyway. But thet makes me feel to gloomy. Les talk about somethin' more cherful. We bin hoi din' a revival meetin' over to our church th' last to weeks, an' aprocksimatly eighty soles jined. Thet makes me feel purty good. My closest rival fer th' hand an' hart us Miss Sally Pritchens done left toun fer a spell. When I think us thet, I feel rite pert.

Thet wouldn' be fare, i six nights, Jimmie didn't have a very You may hev heerd th' pome thet gos; clear ic*ea of, but he worked, learning somethin' like this: By lone Brown The weathered little houseboat lay scorching under the mid-afternoon s The river was blinding with the gli of the light on its surface, while every direction the high marsh grass stood motionless, unbroken by any path. Under a lone waterwillow, fording the only shade except the terior of the houseboat, old man Todd leaned, fast asleep. His scant grey hai: lay in wet strands across his red perspiring forehead. His sad moustache drooped around his half-op en mouth and his weak chin was drooped into the open collar of his dirty blue shirt. From his listless hand extended a crabbing line. Below in the clear water near the bank, could be seen three baby crabs nibbling at the bait, bare feet hung into the water and every ripple wet the edges of his faded brown trousers. No sound disturbed the stillness save the drone of the mosquitoes and the whistling snore from the sleeping man. The oldest old-timer could remember when old man 1'odd first came to the river, forty years before. He had been somewhat of a mystery with his city clothes and manner and the folk had resented his presence among them. "Wasn't everybody on the born there and their ma's and pa' fore 'em?" they asked. "God knows they didn't make no fortune fishin' that a man with edjucaiton should come among 'em." But because of his meekness they had tolerated him and when he anchored his houseboat in a spot no one else wanted they overlooked his presence and, as his nails became broken and dirty and his fine clothes gr^w ragged and faded the river people had come to accept him as one of themselves. On just such breathless afternoons as the one described Jimmie Todd had sat forty years before, gnawing his knuckles and lamenting his atrocious deed. But drink and too many tears had weakened his memory and he slept now instead. The river had kept his secret all thsse yeais, only whispering it at sundown to the lapwings, they swept down for fish. This is the tale it could have told: Jimmie Todd wroked back in Lambert in his uncle's factory, but that only secondary The most important thing was that he had a girl—a wonderful girl named Mary Dick. She had known him in high school and Mary's mother had considered him boy" and had let Mary have her first date with him when she finished school.

He kept thinking of the time when he would get a raise and then maybe he and Mary—but he blushed at the idea. So for two years he had been blissfully happy, seeing Mary every Friday night. Then one night Mary, with a little blush and giggle, had told him that he could no longer come to see her "because, you see," another giggle, "Tom and I are going to—well we are engaged and I don't think it would look right to keep receiving other company, do you?" Mary engaged! and to someone else. She had been fooling him. He couldn't remember clearly how it had happened —the terrible thing that he had done.

Oh, girls, I did have the most adorable Say, here comes Kate Meyers! I'm sure you know her. Cute and sophisticated! There goes John McGivney. He's so cute but so nonchalant without even the aid of a murad. I saw him eating hamburgers with onions the other night. One of the most attractive and popular of 'em all is Hulda Alexander.. She's a honey, and I ought to know. Speaking of brown-eyed Susies!, Boys, have you noticed the eyes of Marion Banta and Mary Catherine Russell? I wish I had 'em—the eyes? of course.

THE COUGAR'S CAVE Each month Junior College exchanges the "Cougar" with papers from colleges in all parts of the United States. The first paper received this month is "College Chatter," from Little Rock* Junior College at Little Rock, Ark. The editorial page was especially good, having many snappy features. ^ Here are a couple of their "Kollege Knacks": "She's called Radio Station." "Why?" "Because anyone can pick her up— especially late at night." "I just quit my job." "Why?" » "The boss was so bow-legged I kept falling through his lap." "The Forty Niner," from Yuba County Junior College, Maysville, Califor- ■ nia, is a real little paper. However, it does not contain quite enough humor"" to satisfy readers of the "Cougar." In its column of "Do You Know That" we find that: "An Indian wears feath- . ers on his head to keep his wigwam." "You can keep a dog from going crazy in the summer by shooting him in the winter." "This Scotchman bought a Ford because they threw the clutch iin." "Joan of Arc is Noah's sister." Another paper shining before us from Arkansas is "The Herald," the State College paper. This paper car- — ried an especially interesting column about their alumni. Taken from one of their columns comes: Ten records which should be in every home: 1. Exams are over but our grades linger on. 2. (Prof, to class-cutters): If I could be with you one hour. 3. My teacher don't care for me. 4. (Student to a "C"): How'd you-» ever come to me, you darling. 5. Dormitory Bay 'When the dinner boll rings at twilight. 6. Any student to an angry roommate: Three little words. 7. Dean of women to co-ed: Go home and tell your mother. 8. Pledge (after ten weeks, to the college): I'm leaving you. The Gusher, sent to us by the * Charles Bender High School of Humble, Texas, is a neat little paper. It has lots of news in it and it is handled very well. Glad to hear from you. Amarillo College of Amarillo, Texas, puts out an interesting college paper, The Ranger. It has several very un- "^ 1 and attractive features. One of their Soothsayings ought to attract a good deal of curiosity and interest. The Literary Lasso contained many good special features.
