WELCOMES NEW COLLEGE STUDENTS The initial social event for the present session of Mississippi A. and M. College was the reception ar ranged for new students or fresh men by the Y. M. C. A. in the audi torium of that building on Friday night. There was nothing stilted, dreary or draggy; not even a ges ture of the somewhat informal pro gram that was heavy or amateurish. Asa matter of course incidental to such an occasion there were a few addresses delivered, but these were all bright and sparkled with wit, wis dom and experience derived from long connection with the college life. The program as devised by Gener al Secretary Ben F. Rogers included a musical overture by the College Orchestra under the leadership of Prof. A. Weatherly, which was in keeping with the bright history of that organization and its finished quality of music as furnished in the past. In the unavoidable absence of President H. S. Johnson of the Y. M. C. A., who was to have given the formal address of welcome, Secre tary Rogers in heartfelt terms ex tended a sincere welcome to the group of new men, some three hund red of whom were assembled in the auditorium. Incidentally Mr. Rog ers gave some brotherly advice drawn from the storehouse of his own actual experience gained since he himself went through the ordeals of opening college life. The address of welcome was re sponded to by Ben G. Hilbun, a fresh ■man from Jones County. Mr. Hil bun began in a modest way declar ing that he had no experience as a speaker. Yet he had hardly spoken a dozen words before it was appar ent that he realized the significance of the’ occasion and he no doubt voiced the sentiment of most of his fellow class men assembled in urg ing upon them the necessity of steady work and constant applica tion to the business that had brought them to this institution. To equip themselves “for making the best better.” Dr. D. C. Hull, president of the College, who followed Mr. Hil’oun paid that earnest young man a well merited compliment, declaring that he had never heard an impromtu or extemporare speaker” rise so readily to his theme. He expressed the hope that Mr. Hilbun’s words and the ideals which they convey would bear good fruits. Dr. Hull spoke briefly, earnestly, and brightly giving some excellent and timely advice to the young men. He made it clear to all that he desired to be considered not only as the executive head of this College but the friend, adviser and sympathizer of all, and wished them all a pleasant and profitable sojourn. A brief inteidude between speeches was filled by several glees given ef fectively by the college male quar tette who were compelled to give several numbers. Father interesting addresses were' delivered by Prof. J. M. Beal and Prof. F. P. Gaines, which were re plete with timely advice, as well as words of hopeful optimism and en couragement. The stage had been tastefully ar ranged with a profusion of golden rod effectively placed around the fool lights, the idea of simplicity having been carried out in al fresco detail. Following the speaking formalities the company adjourned to the lobby and the reading rooms which had been converted into one general re ception hall. Here a pleasant hour was spent in social interchange and greetings, while a bevy of charming young ladies whose presence bright ened the picture helped to serve re freshing ices in general abundance. No doubt could be entertained that this first social function for the season had been a success and it was a wonderful demonstration of the good office which attend the efforts and activities of the Young Men’s Christian Association wherever such organization exists.

The absence of horns on a bunch of beef cattle means 15c to 25c per cwt. added to their value. All buyers prefer dehorned cattle, even for local slaughter, as the car casses are more likely to be free from bruises and injuries, but the most im portant factor is that many eastern shippers often refuse to bid on horn ed cattle, on account of the practical certainty that some of them will be bruised in transit to their destina the result. Officers who were utter and often restricts the outlet on a particular bunch of horned cattle to the local killing demand. It goes without saying that the more buyers that are bidding on a given bunch of cattle the better the price the sales man will be able to obtain. If on ac count of the cattle being horned east ern shippers are practically out of the competition, they will have to sell for whatever the local killer will pay. In the case of a bunch of cattle that, except for their horns, would just anxious for every person in this state in price may amount to as much as 50c per cwt. Dehorn your cattle be fore placing them in the feed lot.” The above advice is especially ap-’ plicable to the southern cattle feeder and producer, as dehorning is a fea ture of the cattle feeding business which the southern cattlemen have in the past very greviously neglected, as a large majority of the southern cattle come to market are horned cat tle. It is a fact that the southern cattlemen are also dependent upon the east and north for an outlet for part of their surplus cattle as well as other sections, because of the fact that so many of the large packing plants are located there. If the cat tlemen of the South realized how easy it is to dehorn their calves, and how much quicker and better a bunch of cattle will fatten after dehorning and how much better they will sell when placed on the market, it would be a rare thing to ever see any horn ed cattle in the South. This is a very important feature of the cattle business and it is hoped that the cat tlemen of the South will govern themselves in the future accordingly, as it is a matter that the cattle buy ers are becoming more strict about every day.
