Members of the Cadet Band, while traveling across New Mexico, had time to create humorous tales. For example:
Senior: "Why is the Normal Band the most appropriate adjunct of the Normal School?"
Band Teacher: "Give it up."
Senior: "The function of the Normal is to develop tutors!"
Luke 1: "Hey Luke, I understand you got a check from home. Pay me that five you owe me!"
Luke 2: "Sorry Luke, but the outside of that envelope had, "Please return in five days" on it so I had to send it right back!"
Floyd: "Your lips are nice."
Mary: "I warn you not to talk about something that may be used against you, but I'll admit they are pretty..."
Floyd: "Aww, I don't think so. Why, I'll put my lips against your lips anytime!"
Visitor: "Have you folks got a bottle opener around here?"
Mrs. Shock: "Yes, but he's away at college."
Abie: "May I have some aspirin please?"
Abie: "To clear my head."
Clerk: "Oh I see, a sort of vacuum cleaner!"
Leroy Marek here doth lie,
Near the sweet by and by.
He kicked a mule and did repent,
The mule returned the compliment.

Old Brady Magers liven in a shoe;
He had so many on the football team
He didn't know what to do
So he shut his eyes and took his pick
And drew a team that no one could lick!

Coach Brady Magers' efforts 1923
