Responses Indicate a Large Attendance for Alumni Reunion June 17
Responses to announcement of an Alumni Reunion to be held in Caddo June 17 and 18 have been very large, indicating that attendance will be as large as any heretofore held.
Mrs. Edwardine Crenshaw Couch, one of the first graduates (class of 1911), who now is practicing law with her husband at Bonham, Texas, will be the principal speaker at the Sunday morning service. Music will be furnished by the former pupils of the school.
Picnic lunches may be brought to be eaten on the grounds, or people may go to several homes.
Business session, which includes election of officers, will be held at 2 in the afternoon. Several greatly important matters will be taken up.
The alumni of the school can be a great help in many ways to the future of the school and its alumni.
Active preparations are now being made for the reception of Saturday night at the auditorium. This is a social affair that heretofore has been very enjoyable. It is at this gathering that most of the former pupils of Caddo High School meet in familiar contact old pupils of school; it is here they gather the news of one another and relive the days of their youth.
A large number have indicated in no uncertain terms that this is the best way they know to spend a part of their vacation days.
Southeastern is to be Furnished Free Water by City of Durant
The city of Durant is to furnish free water to Southeastern Teachers College as was determined by a 5 to 3 vote of that body at its regular meeting last Tuesday night. The action followed cutting items for water payments from budget appropriations of all six state teachers colleges and most of the other education institutions of the state by Gov. Leon C. Phillips.
The council approved by a vote of 5 to 3 to furnish the Durant college up to an average of 600,000 gallons monthly free of charge. President H. V. Posey of the college, explaining the situation to the council, said the average consumption of water in the past had been 500,000 gallons monthly, and he believed that even in the face of increased enrollment and prospects of greater increase, 600,000 gallons would be sufficient.
Bicycle Plays Part in Schooling of Caddo Boy and Man, Seago
W. C. Seago, Caddo, whose bicycle played a big part in his quest for an education, was a member of the A. & M. College graduating class of 700 last week at Stillwater.
Seago, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Seago, received his two first years of college work at Southeastern in Durant and commuted daily from his home to college on this bicycle, pedaling the ten-mile trip twice each school day during two nine-month college terms.
Seago estimates he rode a total of 6,480 miles from his home to Durant during that time.
Seago worked his way through A. & M. College in three years, working on his B. S. degree in agricultural engineering.
