Transcript HOUSTON. TEXAS, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 15. 1930 The Cougar is pleased to announce that this column will be maintained throughout the year to provide an opportunity for all students and friends cf the Houston Junior college to discuss any subject Involv'ng an opinion of interest to the college. Those who have u burning desire to express themselves on a college affair or otherwise will find ready sympathy In "JUST TALK." THE CHAIN GANG A school 's as strong as its weakest pupil; like a chain, it is made up of links. Did you know that every pupil in this school is a Ink. and that pupil to pupil, link to link, we make a chain by which we can pull our school upward to the sky or wallow it down in the mud? If we are going to call ourselves such, wo had better be strong, well- rounded and sound. And if there are any who are too weak to stand up under the strain, then these are the links that ought to be missing. We can't get anywhere by tearing down, we've got to build up—and what's more we've got to build together. Just remember, our assemblies aren't the worst In the world, our faculty isn't the most radical thai has been known, our freshmeu aren't the greenest, and our sohomores are by no means dumb! We've got a GOOD school and just as long as we stick together and pull forward, link by link, wer'e going to be sitting on top of the world. —Dorothy McGraw. Thanks, Dorothy, we're mighty proud of you in our student-body, and such an opt'mistic altitude and outlook could not come to us at a more opportune time. A PLEA FOR HARMONY Porspects for a studenl orchestra look mighty slim: in fact, the idea looks Impossible. Studenl programs are Irregular, hours are scarce, and It is doubtful if enough students could get together and agree on a suitable time for rehearsals. Sounds like the student orchestra plan is doomed, doesn't it? Well, it is not! We CAN have an orchestra, and every student can be a member. It won't take extra time, either; we'll practice when we are doing other things, and if our instruments are In tune, we'll make excellent harmony. Heres' the whole secret: Get in tune with your fellow-classmates, cooperate with your team and with your teachers. Then, and only then, will this school be one whole, harmonious symphony! —Oenevieve Pledge. That's great, Genevieve, and if Junior College can't sit up and take notice of that challenge, we'll take . . . PEP, ROMEOS, FRESHMEN, ETC. How about a little more school spirit? Our football team is fighting, let's back them, whal do you say? H. J. C. has a real pep organization; watch them do things. Did you know that there is a dramatic club out here? Well, there is, and there Is a chance for you Komeos and Juliets to do your stuff. Have you noticed out* freshmen (Continued on page 2) DRAMATIC CLUB ELECTS OFFICERS Meeting for the first lime under the direct'on of their new sponsor and coach, Mr. Nigro, the John It.

"Okay" has been selected by the club for presentation as a warm-up and opener for the season. Cast will be selected and work of production will begin immediately. THURSDAY NITE DANCE SERIES TO BE STARTED OCT. 16, PRITCHARD'S The first of a series of Thursday nite dances to be staged throughout the season has been announced for the night of October 16th at Hallie Pritchard's Studio, located at 3210 Main street. The purpose of the dance i3 to furnish a social function for friends and members of the Houston Junior College student-body. Certain members of the student- body who recognized the need of such a get-together for the students have assumed the responsibility for staging a series of dances and entertainments to be held at least twice a menth, or weekly If the attendance is sufficient to warrant such a move. Sponsors of the dance wish to extend a cordial invitation to all friends of the Junior College to attend. Stags will be tolerated and the usual prices will prevail. Music will be furnished by the same orchestra which furnished such excellent tlance tempo on Freshman Night. 1930 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR THREE STUDENTS OF JUNIOR COLLEGE American Business Men's Club and Delphian Assembly Honor Prominent Members of Studenl: Body. Houston Junior College scholarships have been awarded for this year to three of the most popular and deserving students in the college. Those receiving high honors are M;ss Christine Fitzgerald, R. Willard Nesmith. and Jack Thurman. Miss Fitzgerald received her scholarship from the Delphian Assembly. She graduated from John H. Reagan high school in the class of 1930. She was prominent in girls' activities, particularly athletics, and was voted the most popular girl in the school during her career at Reagan. She is the daughter of Rev. A. G. Fitzgerald, pastor of the Westheimer Presbyterian church. R. Willard Nesmith, who received a scholarship from the American Business Men's club, is also a graduate of the John H. Reagan high school, class of 1928. During his high school career he was active in athletics and was editor of the school paper and annual. He was an officer of the class of '28 and was voted the most representative boy in the school. In 1928 and 1929 he attended Texas A. and M. College where he was active in cross-country, basketball, and track. He transferred his activities to Houston Junior College in 1929-30 where he became a leader In student activities and lettered In football and basketball.

SPONSORS SELECTED FOR 1930 CLASSES Setting a new precedent ih!s year, Junior college has selected again both sponsors of last year's classes to act again as directors of the des- tin'es of the freshman and sopho- classes. Mr. Harvey W. Harris, popular English instructor, will serve again in his 1929 capacity as freshman sponsor. Mr. Harris does not agree with popular op'nion in bolieving that first- year students of a college are not so green that their status quo is nil. Ho believes instead that freshmeu should be bound together by strong class ties and traditions into the very heart of the student body. However, he refuses to dictate the policies of the class in any way. He allows the class to learn its way about with only a guiding hand when in danger or a crisis appears. Mr. Harris is enthusiastic concerning the prospects of the new cla-s (Continued on page 2) DELPHIAN ASSEMBLY GIVES BRIDGE PARTY AS SCHOLARSHIP AID Scholarship, character, aet'vlties— these are the qualifications upon which the Delphian Assembly will judge applicants for the annual scholarship which tbe assembly Is offering each year to one grl graduate of a Houston high school.

COUGARS PLAYED TO SCORELESS TIE BY ST.MARY'SSEMINARY Henry of La Porte and McKibben of Houston Junior College Are the Outstanding Stars of Conflict. Fighting valiantly and refusing to be scored upon even by a team stronger, heavier and more experienced, the St. Mary's team from La- Porte fought the Houston Junior College Cougars to a scoreless tie at We«i End Park, Saturday, October 11. The Seminary team was back on Ms heels throughout '.he game but Klways had the neceisruy kick to fight back and keep its goal l'ne uncrossed. Only once did the LaPorte team threaten the Cougars and that was when Picker, me opposing fullback punted out on the Cougar 20- yard line and then intercepted a pass. It was Seminary's ball on the 18-yard line and one minute remained to play. Three successive passes failed and when the ball went over McKibben got off a great punt which travelled 80 yards and over the goal line. St. Mary's played without a substitute unt'l the last two minutes of the game when Roemer was knocked out and carried from the field. A few seconds later Galiager went into the game and became the thirteenth man of the Seminary team to see action. The LaPorte team was in excellent condition and showed a world of fight throughout the game. Henry, the visitors' left end, was the outstanding player on the field as he made some of the most vicious tackles ever seen at West End Park. The mighty little mite, who tips the scales at 130 pounds, drove relentlessly into every play and showed to advantage during the entire game. McKibben ripped off gain after gain for the Cougars and passed and punted in great style.' His boots averaged 44 yards and he was on the throwing end of four successful passes' which counted for 61 yards. Warden also played a bang-up game for the locals as did Slkes, Barz'zza, Stoddart, Marasek and Kel- mans. Warden made a number of smashing tackles and covered punts in great style. The entire center of the line was a stone-wall which seldom refused to stop Ihe thrusts of the opponents. Lineup follows: Houston Position St. Mary's Matthews .
