He made only two letters gave himself into the custody of last year because of two opera- tions but he has come back strong this year to win three and th, only reason he did not win fourth may be due to the fact that Texas Military College did not have a track team this year. Incidentally. "Speedy" was unamimously chosen captain of the basketball teams of '29 and '30 and also captain of the '30 baseball team While playing second base against Wesley Col- lege he set a junior college rec- ord when he handled 14 chances with 1 double play, without a bobble.

It may be very interesting to his many friends to know that he is a First Lieutenant in the military department of the school and has risen to this positions through his leadership qualities. It is our prediction that he will some day be a great coach or a major league baseball player. At present however it is rumored that he has accepted a position with the Southern Crude Oil Co. Fort Worth, at Wink, Texas the law. Constable Leopard and Will Faulk immediately carried him to the county jail at Athens. The body of the dead girl was prepared for burial by Carroll & hehr at Athens and shipped to Anderson County. Hon. Pat Neff To Deliver Commencement Address The Hen Pat M.
