Transcript THE COUGAR HOUSTON, TEXAS, APRIL 30,1928 SUMMER SCHOOL SCHEDULE NEW BUILDING FOR JUNK IS BELIEVED NEAR Dean Black Says Prospects Bright for Leeland Avenue Site By Garland Sadler Prospects for a new building for the Houston Junior College are exceedingly bright and in the near future students of the college will probably enroll in a building located at Leeland Avenue and Louisiana Street, according to F.

Each school boasts an array of track stars, and the meet promises to be closely contested. For Houston Junior College, Bo Martin will speed down the cinder track in the dashes. Byron Sadler will step the 440-yard dash, with Roy Carley running the distance races. In the field events, Guseman, Savage and Barker will hurl the discus and put the shot.

Hot Weiner Roast on Cold Night, Not So Hot By Jack Barker My dear little classmates and playmates, were you ever invited to come out to the wilds to a weiner roast? And did it turn off cold enough to freeze the horns off a brass monkey, and when you got out there you found it had been postponed ? The above happened to the writer. Boy, it was cold! I caught one of those fast street cars that abound in Houston, and as I stepped off at Eagle street, one of my procrastinating team-mates nearly ran over me. He informed me that the affair had been postponed. I wanted proof. I got it. After riding several rough miles in his fresh air cage, I was ready to postpone anything, except my death Hermann Park was as bare as my hand, and there was no fire in the fireplace. I declared the weiner roast a huge success, in hot language. I understand that later, there was a wee bit of a crowd present, but all the (Continued on page four) ATHLETES GET LETTER AWARDS Eight Cougar athletes will be a- warded basketball letters and sweaters, according to recommendations of the athletic council made public Friday. The men who will be thus honored are: Oliver "Bo" Martin, Johnny Bugg, "Pooch'' Jones, Oliver Guseman, Walter Scarborough , Murray Addison, Bert Adkins and Irvin Wald- man. Awards will be made amid suitable presentation ceremonies as soon as the style of sweaters is determined and other plans completed within the next few days. The Cougar basketball team won the majority of games played the past season, losing only to the high school team of the city. And now all students are eagerly turning their eyes toward next year when it is predicted Sam Houston Junior College will turn out a championship quintet. Naasson K. Dupre Naasson K. Dupre, assistant j dean of the Houston Junior col- j lege, compliments the discipline f of the student body. He has | had nine years experience in ad- j ministrative teaching in Texas. MR. DUPRE LAUDS JUNIOR STUDENTS Naasson K. Dupre, assistant dean of the Houston Junior college and recognized authority in the organization of junior colleges, has nothing but praise when speaking of the student body of the Houston junior col lege. "We have one of the best student bodies with which I have ever dealt- said Mr. Dupre. "The full-time students are for the most part students who come here for an education. We have had a (Continued on page four) AN EDITORIAL (Continued on Page Two) Building rise through the toil of men, but institutions spring from the heart. Remember this in building this institution we all love, Houston Junior College. Remember, too, that while we build here we are creating something which in the future will build men and women to labor for the America of the future. "How can we build a greater Junior College?" you ask. The answer is school spirit, that intangible something we call atmosphere and which every coilege man will concede wields a greater influence over the students than subjects taught i n classrooms. School spirit causes thousands of young men to sweat and toil on the football fields of the country every year; to take the buffets of strenuous seasons—all with a smile because they are fighting for alma mater. It is a spirit akin to that which prompted the youth of America to offer itself up as a sacrifice on the altar of the owrld war, a spirit that builds men and nations. It is the same spirit that Lindberg across the trackless wastes of the Atlantic to victory and fame; that sent Commander Eyrd over the North Pole and Floyd Bennet to glory and death in Quebec. It is the spirit that can make Houston Junior College an insti- PERIODS TO BE HOUR AND HALF IN NEW SESSION Two Courses May Be Taken With Semester Value of Six Hours The second summer session of the Houston Junior College will begin Monday, June the 4th, and continue for a period of six weeks, closing July 13th.

Extension work will be offered in History and English by the Sam Houston State Teachers College, in Education and Social Sciences by the University of Texas. Credits for extension work will be interchangeable. All students taking advanced work must make arrangements with the representatives from Sam Houston (Continued on Page Three) U.T. Debators Lose to H. J. C. Houston Junior College debating team caused one of the major upsets of the year in forensic circles when it scored a judges decision over a University of Texas team representing the Athenaeum Literary Society at Austin, March 3. The winning team was composed of Richard Speed, sophomore, and Garland Sadler, freshman. The University was represented by Billy Hamblem and Leroy Jefferies, the same team that captured the state title for Hollard High School two years ago. Judges of the contest were 0. C. Corry, instructor in economics; G. W. Stumberb, professor of law, and Miss Mollie Montgomery of the public speaking department. Houston Junior College won by a two to one decision. H. W. Harris, instructor in public speaking, former coach of the varsity coach of the Houston Junior College debating team at Texas, and now team, revealed plans for bringing the Southwest Texas State Teachers college debaters to Houston within the next few weeks. An effort will be made to place H. J. C. hi a debate conference next year, and a fight will be staged for a state junior college championship, Mr. Harris said. Members of the debate squad: J. Curry, T. Price, R. Speed, G. Sadler, and Henderson, have engaged in six contests this season, winning three and tying one. No decision was rendered in two of the debates. Defeated teams include Sam Houston high school, Athenaeum society (University of Texas), and Caldwell high school. Tied Sam Houston; no decision, Waco and Navasota high schools.
