THE COLLEGE’S GREATEST GOOD
Yale News: Of the answers by Seniors to
what has been the “greatest good’’ derived from
college, recently published in the News, there ap-
peared to us to be one reply which, in particular,
went to the root of matters, and which, far re-
mote from the realm of the usual or trite, con-
tained a flash of something penetrating and in-
cisive in the way of an idea:
“'rhe development of a capacity for hard, sus-
tained, enduring, orderly effort; implying fore-
sight and self-abnegation; the ability to plan my
work and then to work my plan.”
For the trick of hard, sustained effort must be
learned some time by all who mean business,
and, unless a man proposes to disintegrate, grace-
fully in eternal leisure, he must somehow or
other boost himself over the dead wall of intel-
“ ’Tis no sin for a man to labor in his voca-
tion,” the illustrious Falstaff himself once poined
out; and the capacity for labor may as well be
acquired early, in the rosy dawn of things. “A
man accustomed to work is equal to any achieve-
ment he resolves on, and, for himself, necessity,
not inspiration, is the prompter of his muse.”
For, in the bustle and swiftness of the business
world or elsewhere, mediocrities tower by sheer
pushing ability and working power. And the ac-
quisition of this precious elixir is not so much a
by-play of college life as it is the one funda-

That even Seniors fall victims of spring fever
was demonstrated during the chapel hour not
long ago, when a petition went from the Senior
class to the President requesting that the class be
given a holiday the next day so that they might
go on a picnic. The request was immediately
granted and the next morning a hay-rack crowded
with dignified (?) Seniors might have been seen
going toward the Hagar farm, 2% miles southeast
of town. Mrs. King and Mrs. Schreiber were the
chaperones and all reported a splendid time.
The Seniors are not the only ones at the A. &
M. who go picnicing. The Freshmen chaperoned
by Dr. and Mrs. Bushnell, Dr. and Mrs. Gunder-
son, Professor and Mrs. Webber, Professor and
Mrs. Stewart and Professor Ewing went to the
“Rocks" north of town recently. After enjoying
the delicious lunch prepared for the occasion by
the girls of the class, some time was spent play-
ing different games. All came back to town feel-
ing that the occasion has been a most pleasant
one and hoping that the class might enjoy many
more such occasions during their stay at the

THE COOKING OF SUITORS
As commencement approaches,—that time of
commencing certain interesting occupations in
earnest—the editor has been receiving flattering
feminine inquiries and requests for the recipe for
cooking suitors, timidly offered for the considera-
tion of the ladies at the Junior-Senior Banquet.
He, therefore, ventures to publish the said recipe
herewith, in the hope that it may be of service
to our fair readers, in the delightful and delicate
culinary process referred to, and, indeed, not
without points of interest and instruction to the
gentlemen as well. A suitor, you understand, is
an interesting kind of a fish. I advise, ladies,
that you make it a rule to select the suitor your-
selves, and not rely too much on the judgment of
others in the matter, as inferior and unsatisfactory
specimens are often obtained in the latter way.
Then do not be too much guided by the golden
appearance, as in choosing salmon, nor by the
silvery tint, as in selecting mackerel. Such are
apt to be old and tough. And do not go to the
market for your suitor, as those that are brought
to the door are always fresher and sweeter. Now,
in the cooking of suitors ladies often make very
serious mistakes: some freeze them first. This
makes them hard and without taste. Others roast
them and baste them, others put them in a stew,
and still others keep them constantly in a pickle.
Now it is not to be supposed that a suitor could
be tender and good, treated in this way. Then
sometimes a young lady’s paternal ancestor sees
fit to make it so hot for the suitor that he scorches
and has to be thrown out. This may be a whole-
some experience for the cook. Do not try to keep
the suitor in the cooking process too long nor
by force; he will stay there a reasonable time of
his own accord if properly managed. He may
sputter a little, but that will do no harm. Just
stir him gently once in a while to keep him from
sticking too close. But do not try him with any-
thing sharp to see if he is becoming tender. And
do not season him writh much pepper as it makes
him unpleasantly hot. Nor with lemons as it
makes him sour. The object, of course, is to make
him sweet and tender but not soft. Soft suitors
are often very difficult and unpleasant to manage.
Just add occasional sugar drops, and garnish with
light forms of confectionery, and he will be nicely
done to your taste, and keep as long as you
please. A course in domestic science is really of
considerable advantage in the successful cooking
of suitors. Please note, also, that the best suitors
are of the kinds of fish most easily caught in
schools,—the college species is especially fine.
QUALITY OF WORK DONE AT A. & M.,
(Continued from page 1)
work of this year has been done equally as well
as it was last year.”
Other Important Departments:—Domestic Arts
(Miss Rebecca Acheson); Mathematics (Dr. Carl
Gunderson); Pedagogy (Dr. John II. Bowers);
History and Political Economy (Dr. C. J. Bush-
nell); Drawing and Arts (Miss Harriet Day);
Agriculture for Schools (Professor T. M. Jef-
fords); Chemistry (Dr. Hardee Chambliss). Re-
ports from these departments indicate encourag-
ing progress and excellent work throughout the
year. Two of these departments were not organ-
ized last year. The heads of these departments,
not being here last session, offered no specific
comparison with former work.

A. & M. WINS THE OKLAHOMA INTER-
COLLEGIATE TRACK AND FIELD MEET
The Oklahoma Inter-Collegiate Track and
Field Meet was held at the State Fair grounds at
Oklahoma City, Friday, May 2o, 1910. The day
was excellent for the meet but the track was in
very poor condition, so that track records could
not be broken. There were six colleges compet-
ing, —Epworth, Southwestern, Kingfisher, North-
western, Central, and A. & M.
A. & M. romped away with the meet for the
seventh time in eleven years, winning by a score
of 56 points. The closest team was Alva who
scored 2y, Epworth 2o, Southwestern fourth,
Kingfisher fifth, and Edmond last.
While our team did not score as many points
as a year ago, this may be accounted for by the
fact that the track was too heavy for our distance
men and we were unable to score more than a
third in the two mile.
A. & M. won the meet, won the relay, broke the
only record that was broken, and won the all-
round championship, a record surely that speaks
well for the team and the work of Mr. Gallagher.
I he star of the meet was Talbot who won the
pole vault and broke the state record, won the
high jump, took second honors in the high hur-
dles, and the broad jump, a total of 16 points.
Jessee and Potter also starred in their events,
Jessee taking both hurdles, and Potter placing in
the 100 and winning the half mile. In this latter
event Potter has not been beaten in three years
in which time he has won it eleven times, and
holds the state record.
Results of the meet were as follows:
100—Johnson, Alva; Fiske, Alva; Potter, A. & M. Time,
220—Fiske, Alva; Lowman, A. & M.; Martin, Epworth.
440—Martin, Epworth; LaRue, Weatherford; Carder,
Northwestern. Time, 54.

Mile—Scroggs, Kingfisher; Ballard, Alva; Kennedy, Alva.

& M.. Time 11 :y 2-5.
