Students Take Practical Attitude Toward Graduation It Is indeed gratifying to note the course which the Houston Junior College graduating class is taking toward expenditures. Last Wednesday a motion was formed that they have invitations. Out of the approximate forty there, only two voted in the affirmative; thus showing an unwillingness to participate in the usual conventional routine of graduation Having just finished the high school exercises and contemplating the senior college graduation, it would be quite as disgusting as eating heavily between meals, to make an ostentatious show of this mid-way festival All the class as a whole wants is to be quietly presented with its tuplo- STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION DANCE The final Students' Association dance for this term has been announced for the night of May 2nd, at the University Club. Music will be furnished by Bill Vincent's KTRH orchestra from 9:30 to 1, According to President Howard Branch, tickets will be on sale early next week at $1 each. Stags will be as welcome as usual but get your date now for an evening of enjoyment ALUMNUS IS SOUGHT BY JUNIOR COLLEGE SHEET The Houston Junior College has now had several hundred students within its halls. Last year we graduated our first class which haa an enrollment of 30. It has been the policy of The Cougar to keep f„ touch with as many of our graduates and former students as possible but th© task has been a difficult one. It can be accomplished only by the united effort of all who have left us. We have the record of many who aie in other institutions and have been trying to secure some message from them for The Cougar. Some have responded but all too many have put off the simple task of sending us a message. Thus this Issue of The Cougar is being sent to all graduates and former students whose addresses we can secure. If you will keep us Informed as to your address, we hope it will be possible to send you regularly the paper of our and your college. Thus this is your chance to keep in touch with your college and we can assure you, your frequent communications will be welcomed by many. Here may we add that it would be of much Interest to know of the plans of the present graduating class which is an enrollment of 45. 1927-1928 Miss Margaret Biggs attended college after having been at Baylor University, Waco. Miss Biggs' home is in Humble. Her engagement is announced to Mr. Lloyd Martin of Humble j who Is in. the oil business. He was prepared for his work at A. and M. 1927-8 Ray C. Tuttle who will be remembered by many who were in college the first year. At present he Is engaged in the Texas Oil Company at Humble, bis home town. While ift college he took the course preparatory to a law course ana is now pursuing the n the South Texas School of Law. 1927-1928 Kenneth E. Bruce has been tuund by our reporter in one of the numerous stores in the city of the A. and P. Company. He was particularly pleased to hear from the college. Said that he regarded the value he received the year in college as far greater than the and expects to be with us again next year. To The Graduates of 1929 We trust you will furnish us with additional material for our next iiisue. Here is the partial list we have been able to secure. Attending the University of Texas are the following: Garland Sadler, Byron Sadler, Margaret E. Davis, Vincent T. Fromen. Attending the Southwestern University: Alleen Pickett. Attending Rice Institute: Anna Ray (Continued on page 4) LETTER COMES FROM H. J. C. STUDENT ON TRIP AROUND GLOBE Prof, at Junior College Gets an Interesting Account of Travels Though attending college and ^jlng ■•ery satisfactory work, tbe spnu of idventure appealed to Stant Cowley, 3401 Austin Street, Houston. On Alarch 20th he joined the Ss. "Slem- mestad" for its trip around the world. This steamer is of the Norwegian line represented localf by Wllkins & Biehl. After a stop at New Orleans the steamer proceeded to the Panama The accompanying letter of April h was mailed April 11th from San Pedro, the port city of Los Angeles. California. We are glad to be able to pass it on to the student body and trust to be again favored with reports of our first student in his trip around tbe world. After leaving the American coast the steamer will stop at Yokohama and Kobe, Japan; Shanghai, China; Mocassar;, The Celebes, Dutch East Indies, via the Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal; Port Said, Egypt; Copenhagen, Denmark; then to Sweden. The return will be across the Atlantic coming to Boston, then New YorK and finally to Houston, arriving about the last part of August. "Ss. Slemmestad," April 5th, 1930 Mr. Wallace H. Miner Houston Junior College Houston, Texas. Dear Mr. Miner: Just a few lines to you and my class mates at Houston Junior College to let you know that I am thinking about you and miss you all a lot. I was just beginning to get interested in your class and was enjoying it immensely so that it was with sincere regret that I left you. However, it is to be hoped that we can be together next year and I will then have some first-hand knowledge of this world of ours. Since my departure, I have had three days in New Orleans, my old home, and have passed through the Panama Canal. I could not hope to be able to fittingly describe this famous passage to you, as it has to be seen to be appreciated, but I will attempt to give you some impressions in the hope that they may be of interest to you and the history class. From the Atlantic you come to the small town of Colon and pass up Colon channel'to tbe Gatun locks. This lock consists of three chambers in which the ship is lifted eighty-five feet to the level of Gatun Lake. This in an artificial lake and was formerly ,i fertile valley. It is 164 square miles in (Continued on page 4) Junior College to Graduate Largest Class on May 23 Forty-five members of the sophomore class of Houston Junior College win be graduated at commencement this year, according to !■. M. Liack, dean. This is the third and largest graduating class in the history of the school. Commencement exercises will be held on May 23. Candidates for graduation: belen OUTGOING CLASS HOLDS ELECTION Peterson, Nesmith and Boyett Elected Class Executives Emil Peterson was elected president of the 1930 graduating class of Junior College at a meeting of the class Wednesday night Willard Nesmith (another redhead) was voted vice- president by acclamation, and Margaret Bayett was elected secretary. Due to the fact that only a few of the sophomore class are graduiting it was necessary to elect efficers other than the regular sophomore class officials. At the suggestion of Mrs. Bender, the class voted to ask Mr. Dupree if they might have charge of the final assembly as their farewell. Plans for the commencement exercises have not been completed as yet, but the date has been set for May 3rd. Graduates are urged to see Mrs. Duggan immediately about their diplomas and caps and gowns. Sylvan Beach Pavilion Is Scene of Student Party Friday, April 4, the Junior College students were given a dance by the Sylvan Beach management at Sylvan Beach. Everyone was pepped up over the dance and the ideal weather for the occasion. Practically ail of the young people who have participated in the social life of the college were there. Happy King and his Southern Entertainers furnished the music, which was a treat for those who listened in. The dance proved to be a huge success, more so than any of the dances heretofore given. Musi'c and floor combined to make this a most enjoyable event of tbe Houston Junior College social seaso.i. NUPTIAL FATALITIES AT H. J. C. (To Date) Some time ago in one of the there was mentioned the topic of chivalry and a boy mispronounced the word causing considerable amusement, and showing his evident lack of such considerations. One of the more mature men remarked that he thought that now-a-days there was not the considerations of respect as of the days gone by. He further said he did not believe there were now the kind of girls of the "clinging vine" type as in the good old days! This created more amusement and debate with heated arguments on each side. One girl of the "independent type" said she certainly would not obey a man but would do just as she pleased, always! To this remark another pretty lass with equal ferver objected and said "I certainly would not do that way. I would do anything to please my beau. If he does not like a dress, I would take it off, never wear it again and throw it away!" Wedding bells have rung for the latter who is happily married and living here in Houston but as for the former she is—somewhere! We believe tbe first of the Houston Junior College girls to be married was Miss Alice Mae Jackson. She was married soon after the end of the first semester of the first year of the college. We have not been able to find her present address and woulu be obliged to anyone giving this information. We wish her continued happiness and trust she will come to visit the college at her convenience. Another record, we believe, is that NOTICE AH students completing their courses in June must place (heir orders for CAPS, GOWNS and DIPLOMAS with Miss Duggan immediately. of the first students of the college to be married. After the mid-year examinations a year ago Elizabeth K. Deutsch married Charles P. Phelps. Later Mr. Phelps had to leave college and entered the oil businesss. After completing the year's work of the first year of the H. J. College and making a brilliant record, Miss Elizabeth M. Scudder of Palacios was persuaded that married life was better than continuing in college. Air. Harold Barr of Palacios Is the lucky man. He represents the Chevrolet company. Mr. Barr attended Rice Institute taking the mechanical engineering courue. Speaking of weddings, another record is that of the first lady teacher of the college to become married. We all like our charming registrar and regard Mr. F. Lee Duggan a most fortunate man. A close second of the first lady of the faculty to become married was (Continued on page 4) Allnoch, Russell Angell, Margaret Boyett, Grace Campbell, Helen (Jhen- ey, Ellen Cleveland, Lissabelle Crittenden, Mrs. Floyd Cursinger, Lois Dawson, Reveris Eaves, Frances p'nst- er, Anna Ray Gomperts, I.aman Grant, Mary Alice Graves, Francis- Harris.

NUMEROUS TOPICS CONCERN STUDENTS AT WEEKLY MEET Will two finals instead of one shorten the worries of the students and faculty members here? Mr. Dupre, at the Wednesday assembly, April 2, informed the students that there would be a change in the examinations this term. The method ot giving one two-hour final examination, in each subject is to be changed to that of givig two onehour examina- Other affairs of interest to the faculty and the student body were taken up. Lois Dawson gave a short talk to stimulate interest in the Tennis Club, and Willard Nesmith asked for more co-operation for the Golf tourna- Howard Branch announced that an invitation had been received irom Sylvan, asking all bo;, s of Junior College to bring their dates, to the dance Fiiday night, and assuri-.,,' them that they would be admitted free that night, and that those who attended would have the benefit of a reduction the rest of the season. Entertainment was furnished by Willard Nesmith, who, accompanied by Ruth Kidd, sang two beautiful songs. Two meetings were held after assembly. One a meeting of the sophomores, took up certain graduation problems, and the other meeting was that of the cast of "Trial by Jury," which was so successfully put on in the school auditorium that it Is to be given again several times and broadcasted by radio. Junior College Debaters Vanquish State Teachers The Houston Junior College debating team was victorious over the San Houston State Teachers College team in a debate in the Junior College auditorium recently. "Resolved, that ail nations should adopt a plan of disarmament except that necessary for police protection," the question in debate lie Junior College, represented by Roy Hofheinz and J. W. Newton, took the affirmative side of the question. The Huntsville school, a senior Institution, was represented by John Barden and Alwin Williams. The Junior College debaters pointed out that the cost of armament is r too great and that disarmament the only solution for world peace. According to the Huntsville debat- ■s, the plan of disarmament is Impractical because it can not be enforced.
