First the wind blows swift and fierce
Then the rain begins to pour
Soon there conies a sultry spell
And then it spills some more
Our gardens soon are looking green
Until we have a frost some night
And rise to find ice in the sink
Ihen by jinks, we're in a plight.
And next a wind right from the north
Which leaves without more harm
Thus in order they will come
Last is dessert with sandstorm.
Than plain spring fever in its wake.
But 011 what day and which and when
Is for the Gods up in the sky
And not mere mortal men.

i: won over the Phi Gams Tuesday
afternoon 13 to 10. The winners
started with a lead which was not
overcome by the Phi Gams until the
last of the fifth inning but a spurt in
the last brought six runs across the
plate and game finally decided for
the K. A.'s. -
Both teams' pitchers were pounded
unmercifully and it was only the
good fielding of both teams that the
score was not larger. Two home-
runs, one by Swatek, of the Kappa
Alpha, and one by Groom, a Phi Gam,
were knocked during the game. T! ?

Muskogee was elected Freshman

tains more than 500 members.

Fire Department Must
Have Its Rubber Coats
A Freshie would a' dating go,
Where the dear brothers told him no,
But just as freshie was thinking it
A naughty vampire nabbed him, and
said, "you're mine!"
It wa.-. just an ordinary fire
Cause being a faulty
Damage not very severe.
K'o lives lost.
The fire department, with its usual
dispatch and promptness, reached
the blazing home of the Hon. J. B.
Phillips, Cleveland county's repres-
entative in the state legislature Tues-
day night, at 8 o'clock. A crowd of
university Students also reached the
house, which is located 011 the cor-
ner of T.ufaula and the Boulevard.
The fire department, with the aid of
willing university students, attached
a hose to the fire plug. No pressure.
Then some brilliant genius suggested
that the hose be attached to Norman's
new fire engine. Pressure de luxe!
So the firemen, bystanders assert,
rushed into the burning building.
Suddenly one of the fire men ex-
claimecl: 'boys, we haven't got 011 our
rubber coats. Lets go get them'." •
