Transcript THE COUGAR JAMES HARVEY LEDLOW ALVA LEE KERBOW SUE GOREE THOMASON S. W. HENDERSON H. W. SOUTH Instructor of Economics and Business Administration. M. B. A., C. P. A., University of Texas. Spring Term Leads To Various Moods "In Spring when May winds pierce our solitudes," The ending school term leads to many moods. The profs are saying, "No more pay 'til next September, now;" the students tighten their belts a notch, seek out their bathing suits, make certain eds' phone numbers have have not been changed, and sell their books to the highest bidder. The profs labor at grading examination papers; the students labor at com coting answers for parential questions regarding flunks, or happily cavort upon a platform of A's, B's, C's, and D's. The graduates shed a tear and say, "Thank gosh, I'll never again hear M. A. Miller and his pedigogical contemporaries say, "You haven't! Why haven't you?" in that tone of voice so dear. Undergraduates grin and say, "Knocked down another year." And what does Mr. Dupree say now that the term is done? Well, maybe we had better not go into that. Miss Thomason: "Now then, stupid, what's the next word? What comes after cheese?" Charles Buse: "A mouse." Lewellyn R.: "How is it that widows generally manage to marry again?" Lucille C: "Dead men carry no tales." Johnny Reagan: "How did you get the cut on your forehead?" Vincent Arteo: "Hie—musta bit myself." Johnny: "How could you bite yourself up there?" Nora: "Nix, I'm a Venus- de Milo girl." Johnny: "How's that?" Nora: "Hands off." Keneth P.: "All that I am I owe to my mother." George P.: "Why don't you send her 30 cents and square the account?" Howard G.: 'Til tell you something if you promise to keep your mouth James M.: "What is it? I will." Howard G.: "You've got halitosis." C. G. Hall: "Do you think there's music in the stars?" Albert K.: "I don't know about that, but I know of the sun causing a belle to peel," Lee Meyer: "That plane is sure flying low," Terry Russ: "She sure is." Lee Meyer: "She, my eye, that's a mail plane." W. Autrey Morrison: This isn't a fair test. Mr. Bishkin: Remember where you in Education, University of Instructor in English. M. A., Colum- Oklahoma. bia University. THE COUGAR'S CAVE "Big doings" have been going on at Albert Sidney Johnston or so the Johnston Judge tells us. A big event in this year is the activity program, put on by the various clubs and activities in the school. All are included in the program which shows the results of achievement in the line of club entertainment. Wish we could have seen it; must have been very clever. Again we hear from "The Kennel" of the Texarkana Junior College. They too have held popularity contests, have had plays presented, and all the usual Wm run of school news. "Dog Biscuits." .. ||? feature column in the paper, con; some statistics on the college. Migr. well if we'd try it. EVALYN WOOLF Professor of Education and Assistant Dean pro-tem. M. A., University of Texas. Again, we have heard from the "Forty-Niner," published by students of the Yuba County Junior College, at Marysville, California. There are lots of things happening out there; freshman teas and commencement balls in the social line. Graduation will be along pretty soon. Their paper has had its formal entrance into the California Junior College Press Association at the spring convention. That's taking steps toward bigger and better things. Here is "The Wrangler" of Edinbergh, Texas, again. It has been a long time since we have heard from them, but here is a little of the "going-ons" that have been happening around there. The Second Annual Older Boy Conference was held in March. Boys from all over the State of Junior College age attended. It is promoted by the State Y. M. C. A. There were lectures, music, discussions, and consultations with "The Boy, a Citizen," as the theme of the whole conference. Should have been beneficial as well as entertaining, boys. "The Herald" of the State College at Arkansas again comes to us. The first State College Senior class graduates this year. Activities were planned for May 14. This year's senior class has the dis- itnetion of being the first to be able to graduate with a four-year record. The college was only admitted last fall to the class of four-year institutions. Secretary of the Houston Junior College. MOTHER By. Lord Salisbury There's a little word called Mother With a rhythm all its own, Which seema to soothe the heart strings In the cradle of Its tone. God has framed it for tenderness, And understanding true And then He called it Mother For He named it after You. General Foche when asked his opinion of education, replied: "Next to "Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits." The most manifest sign of wisdom is continuous cheerfulness.—Montague. The pleasant books that silently among our household treasures take familiar places,—Longfellow. BOYS' TENNIS FINALS TO BE HELD MONDAY Quarter finals of the J. C. Boys Tennis Tournament finals finds six of the 23 original entrants ready to play in the semi-finals qualifying match. The winner of the match between Harold Woods and Bobby Brenham will play Furman, who defeated Leroy Daly to enter the semi-finals. Howard Graham will play Charles Buse. The winner of that match will tie up with the winner of the Jack Cullinan-Bert Frieburg match. The matches have been played at the various city courts and are scheduled to conclude the tournament Monday. A silver loving cup, donated by a Houston firm, will be awarded the winner of the first place in the final match. We Apologize Harvey W. Harris, professor of English and Public Speaking, and Archie French, athletic coach, supplied the Cougar with cuts to be printed in this issue, at the request of F. R. Birney, sponsor. Some person removed these cuts from the locker where they were placed. Thus, through no fault of the staff, it is impossible to print these two pictures. EVERETT KENDALL, Editor, The Cougar. Bill Cox: Who's the fair maid eyeing you from the window > Vincent Artale: Just another school teacher who can't make her pupils behave. Absence makes the marks grow rounder. Bursar at H. J. C; B.
