The piece about Annie Webb Blanton in the summer edition of The North Texan reminded me of a story Miss Bessie Shook used in her freshman English classes in the mid-1920s to illustrate a principle of punctuation, namely: A period is not required following a title.

According to the story, Miss Blanton took particular offense at the “NORTH TEXAS STATE NORMAL.” that graced the front of the old administration building (where the Auditorium Building now stands) and frequently cited it as a flagrant violation of principle.

When slanting props were used to support the aging wall, someone asked what the supports were for. The answer, supplied by the college wit, was: So Miss Blanton can get up there and take that period down.
