A.&M. College Notes
Friday and Saturday of last week I were the jeal and bona fide initial I busy days on the College campus i with a steady inrush of young men . coming to the Registrar's and Secre- 1 tary’s offices to try for matricula-1 tion,.and so get a good start ahead of the real rush which opened Mon day. Sunday also saw quite a large in crease in attendance, in dormitories, on the grounds, and at mess tables, with living quarters quite a swarm with eager and promising looking young men ready for whatever ex perience might await their opening, days. In fact, when all trains were in Sunday there were more than 500 would-be matriculate on the grounds. General Secretary B. F. Rogers, in charge of the Y. M. C. A. work and plant, has once mote proven himself the right man, physically, temp*cr mentally and intellectually for the important work which devolves upon him, as head “knocker” or manager in-chief of the “T n Home. Mr. Rogers has had his hands full and his time quite thoroughly occupied in caring for ‘all for whom sleeping room could be found. If the “Y” building was provided with 100 liv ing rooms, and all furnished, Mr. Rogers could have given entertain ment to as many additional seekers, and even at that, the need >r de mand would have been inadequate. —x — On Friday night, Sept. 24, as an nounced by Secy. Rogei - s, the first formal assembly of the session will be held in the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A. building. This is intended to be as free, open and informal as possible, and will be for the purpose of getting together the new students, who are making their first entry at the College. After a few worus of greeting from President Hull and other faculty members, and. a selec tion of musical numbers suitable to the occasion, the word will be given srom (Dur County Client Weekly Letter oy C.

The cattle 'market report is based on the sale of two cars of cattle from Sturgis on the St. Louis market Saturday, Sept. 18th: Big fine short horn bull, $6.75, nice Jersey bull, $4.50; cows and heifers, according to flesh, $3.75 to $5.75; yearling, according to quality, $3.90 to $5.00; big Jersey stags, $5.50; Jersey steers, 600 lbs., $5.25. The worst sale was on light steers, light bulls and heavy yearlings weigh ing around 400 lbs. They sold gen erally for $3.90 a uhndred, while any thing lighter or heavier brought more money. —x— I have not shipped any hogs for ■several weeks, but the market is bet ter and you should get at least 15c for fat hogs from 150 lbs. up on the market for the past week.

President H. S. Johnson of ‘the College Y. M. C.

This will be ar ranged with the aid and advice of ’the Y. M. C. A. workers, who are developing a suitable for the event Among the “old boys” seen on the campus the past week-end was E. C. Mclnnis, formerly on the chemical and bacteriological staff, after his student days were over, back in 1907- OS, who is now a busy plantation operator in Tallahatchie County. There may be'’a few on the campus today who remember the masterful and dependable way in which with Harold McGecrge as his most relia ble team mate, “Mack” with his 230 Jjounds of manly avoirdupois, was in strumental in pulling many a grid iron scrimmage out of the fire of doubt and uncertainty. Before entering into private life, Mr. Mclnnis served quite awhile as Dis trict demonstration and extension agent in the delta, in which position he made good, as has been his habit with anything else he has essayed to handle so far. The switching on of the ground lights over the campus on Saturday evening for the first time in many weeks, was H e signal for a spon taneous manifestation of acclaim ‘ in ell observers Incidentally it was announced, a car of coal had been shunted into the power plant siding and that for the time being dark nights are at an end.

Do not feel that it is her duty to hunt you up, but look her up. —x — The most hopelessly ignorant per son in the world is one too smart to learn. It is human nature after we get grown to want to teach instead of being taught, but remember that you never learn anything while you talk and if you are really smart you are not going to have to talk a lot to show it. “Deep water runs smooth.” In the collision of minds there is wis dom. —x — I have tried to find out what was best about the cotton and cotton seed market and I have come to the con elusion that we ought to hold for better prices. The farmer has led the way in price reduction for a year now but has found very little reduc in the things that he consumes. Organized labor demands higher wages and gets it. The railroad de ny.nds higher freight rates and gets it and if the farmer will hold his cotton off the market it is bound to go up. Now lam sure that there is no combination locally that is trying to hold down on the price of your cotton and I do not know that there is any combination anywhere, but 1 do know that if the farmers hold their cotton off the market taht there will be an advance in price.
