He seemed to be a little light in the upper story and a few questions asked him caused him to so tangle himself that "he did us no harm -whatsoever, but nevertheless it might pay him to be a little itiore discreet in the future." Mr. Hobart replied: . "1 note your statement that you were 'fttlng ready' to slug one of my men the other day. The fact that you occupied all your time in getting ready, and did not carry it any further, is an indication to me that you 'are a man of rare good udgment. I have no control what- ver over the personal actions of he man you refer to, but I feel ery sure that he will not trouble _ou if you do not trouble him; but it you or any other of your s'lug- gerV entertain the idea of slugging him or anyone else in this section of the country, allow me to suggest to 'you that it would be a very good $lea to follow your former plan and - continue 'getting ready.' In fact, knowing the man as well as I do, if I entertained the idea of slugging him, I would postpone it, and let it Be the last thing I did before Crossing the divide.' I have been in •fexas some 24 years, and my knowledge of Texas people convinces me that . they do not take kindly to slugging, and I have known the results to have been very unpleasant. , "Just keep your sluggers in Chicago, and I feel very, sure that they will enjoy much better health than if they attempt to apply their vocation here."Sept.3,J.90G._ New Courses in Physical Ed To Be Ready Soon AUSTIN, May 30— Several neu cWrses in physical education wil be Offered at the University of, Tex...,Ss>this summer, Dr. D.

Its story ijs one of constant progress, of growth with the City and of contribution to the city's growth. Beginnings of the Pampa school re lost in obscurity, but oldtlmers gree that there was a school here n 1908, with a total enrolment of ix housed in a small frame bulld- ng on the present site of Central Baptist church. Before that there were schools. There was one teacher, sometimes a young woman, sometimes a man vho invariably merited the title of 'professor." Among the early teach- ars.were Professor Thomas and Miss Warren, the present Mrs. B. E. Fin- field. ey. The school grew rapidly with the young town, and by about 1910 a arger building was needed. Bonds were voted for a brick building, but a controversy arose over the site. The north and south section of the city each.wanted the building. An election was held; the north side won;, the South side protested; the suit was carried to the courts; finally a compromise was effected. The north side got the building, but placed it nearer to the center of town. J. M. Daughrrty, now a member of the school board, was one of the first superintendents to .serve in the brick building, the red brick structure that still stands on central campus. In 1917, the Pampa. independent school district was created by an act of the legislature on George Washington's birthday. Steady growth of the system continued. The nucleus of the m-esent high school building was built early in the last decade. It was expected to care for school needs of the city for years, but soon came the oil discovery and undreamed-of demands. A wing: was built to the high school in 1926, another in 1929. Meanwhile, B. M. Baker ward school was built, then Woodrow Wilson, Horace Mann, and finally Sam Houston. Before the last of the ward buildings was completed, additions had been made to some of the others. The high school gymnasium was also included in the building program, to make the seven buildings that now house school activities. Harvester park, the school athletic plant, is another important adjunct to the school property. The building program is still In progress; additions are being made to two wards schools, and an audl- Important Texas History Dates October, 1528—Cabessa dc Vaca shipwrecked on Texas coast.

Only a virgin prairie land awaited them when the came in 1836. There were no comforts and no conveniences. They had only their faith and courage to sustain them as they set about their tasks. Before them was an untried land and behind was the security of a civilization that was already established, But their hearts did not falter in spite of droughts or blizzards, privation or hunger as, calm in their own strength, they fulfilled their destiny. There were only a few in 1836, but the scarcity of their numbers did not deter their actions or obscure their vision of what was to come, Their homes were only rude shacks or half dug outs, but the humble dwellings did not dim the love of family that glowed in each breast. Their neighbors often times lived many miles away, but distances could; not diminish the tics of friendship that bound them together with bands of steel. And thus they lived and loved and had their being—working in the present, planning for the future—and by their work and out ol' their plans grew and developed a community.
