Transcript THE COUGAR Published by the Journalism Students of the Houston Junior College HOUSTON. TEXAS, FEBRUARY, 1929 CURRICULA HAS NEW JOURNALISM COURSE TO OFFERJTUDENTS Many Phases of Newswriting to Feature Course Under F. R. Birney A new course has been offered the Houston Junior College students thin term. The subject.

Birney, instructor in journalism, in the city high schools, the class is to study new? writing and editing, emphasizing those phases of newspaper work in which they are most Interested.

KERBOW INTERVIEWED GIVES OPINION ON NEW MODE OF TESTS "The teacher or instructor doesn't appreciate scientific tests of the objective type will wake up some morning and find himself out of harmony with the school business.' This statement was made by Profes sor Kerbow, pbychology instructor, in reference to the new objective tests he is trying to introduce In Houston Junior College. Professor Kerbow is strongly opposed to subjective or essay test. He claims It is this type of examination that gives the student a false impression of school life. The purpose of education is to "build ideals and attitude. It seems to be accomplishing everything but this." Professor Kerbow pointed out that many boys and girls, especially boys, leave school before gradua tion, mainly because of these unfai examinations. He groups these objective tests unto two distinct branches: Classification or achievement, and intelligence. The following types of examinations be employed from these branches: True and false, sentence completion, multiple selection, and simple recall. They can be used effectively in practically every branch of education. The objective tests, according to Professor Kerbow, are already being used in principal universities throughout the country. These scientific tests not only cover more territory, but also leave out any possible bias or prejudice on the part of the teacher, in grading. Again, they make it possible for a comparison of students in the same class, various classes in the same school; or in classes in Junior College and Rice Institute.

COACH SMITH SOUNDS CALL FOR TRACK MEN C. B. Smith, coach and athletic director of Houston Junior College, has issued his call for track and field candidates for the coming season. Several men, who are physical training students have already put in a week of limbering up on the cinders. With the host of athletic talent in the school Smith contemplates that teh college will have a formidable crew of "hoofers." Those students who are expecting to take physical training should come out for the team and give their best. Library Helped By Addition of New Books The college library is to be expanded and improved this new term. Part of a large order of books and magazines has already arrived and the rest is due in the next few days. The purchase of these publications was made possible by the library fee money, paid by the students, the beginning of each year. This new literature will increase the outside reading material of practically all departments of the school. Also an improvement is being made to the dictionary card catalog with the addition of analytical and subject cards. Books in the library are now classified under the Dewey decimal system. The common system employed throughout the country. NEW PLAN KEEPS TAB ON ASSEMBLY ABSENCES A new inovatiou was tried out ... assembly February 13. Students were assigned a certain section and will be checked each week by members of the faculty. Failure to attend is punishable by loss of credit. STAFF INAUGURATED FOR NEWJEMESTER Sprightly Edition Promised With New Editor Each Issue With the reorganization and rebirth of the Inactive student publication, the Cougar, there has been a complete change of staff. In an attempt to acquaint the student body with its new staff, a shoit sketch of he life and experience of each is given. The following have been selected as i.-sue editors: As first issue editor Isadore Kaplan has been selected. He is a graduate of San Jacinto High School, where he served on the "Campus Cub" staff for two years. If the paper goes over he will be responsible for its success- Margaret Boyett will serve as copy editor for this edition. It is her duty to read all the material that comes in, correcting any mistakes she may find. Miss Boyett is also a former student of San Jacinto High School, having served as treasurer and assistant editor for two years on the "Campus Cub." The job of making up the paper has been given to Harry Seaman. H an ex-student of San Jacinto High School, Allen Academy, and Sam (Continued on Page 4.) point man. barely\played a .whole game when he fouled- Thornton. H- J. C. center, as the final Whistle blew. Both teams see-sawed for "the lead in the first quarter. With Thornton ah<( Searabou^h as the nucleus of defence, the local boys played air-tight for the first frame. When the quarter ended the Cougers were on the long end of an 8 to 6 count. The Smith men began warming the hardwood in the second quarter, with Bergin. former South Park baskeeer, and I'hs'ps, mite forward from Heights, exhibiting some fine work. These two boys broke fast and worked beautifully under the basket. Blinn had an outstanding guard in Kay, well built football man of the past season. This stocky lad drilled thru entire defense twice to make crip shots. "Cap" Harding, coach of the San Jacinto High School turned in a fine performance as referee. The coach let no one escape his eye- throughout the game. At the half, the score was 13, all and the third and fourth quarters were practically given over to roughness, result Blinn had to replace Jenkins and Maxwell with Knauf and Koat, on personal fouls. Time out was called for Junior College after about six minutes of play, when Peter- and e.Iter were sent in for Yelverton and Jones. The score at the third quarter stood 19 to 18 in favor of Blinn. Blinn held a two-point lead est of the game. TOO MUCH WHOOPEE Our librarian seems to have been having a great deal of trouble lately keeping some over-exuberant ex-high school seniors quiet. They are sort of noisy and naturally disturb the other students in the ibrary, but r eally It's sort of encouraging to see this energy being exerted on these little social gatherings. It shows a desire on the part of our students to develop their social life more. Perhaps necessity is again the mother of invention, and we will soon organize the "Houston Junior College Library Club" and serve coffee, hot chocolate, etc. If such a thing happens, then perhaps we could put in a radio or orthophonic and have a little dance between hours. Or perhaps "Skipper" Boyd could bring a deck of cards and some dominoes from the Houston Eleetric company's clubroom. In the meantime, we might nominate a bouncer who would take care of the noisy ones. Brother Reeves might fill this job with the able assistance of Julia. Reeves and Julia nearly had to clean up on the whole Amos club basket ball team the other night, if you remember, but luckily the pride of Junior College held his temper. However, the appipaching "football" dance may give us social climbers a ohance. Let's see. e ha"ti a dance in the gym »e night. It was a success. Later, ile had a dance in the University clut] It was a success. Now let's ca pulate. It's been since last Septemb'f. five months, since school starlet1* Can you blame these students for Peeking to get bet ter acquainted in our library? Since they moved the cars out to the streets from the driveway it's too far to walk to the cars, although a few still persist in this quaint custom.. Shining examples would be the now famous tragedian, Robert Cole, Jr., friends, "Skipper" Boyd and friends. Ralph Miller and friends, Pete Garrison and friends, etc. We might mention our athletic tests as social gatherings, but how much support have our students giv en our athletic games? Why, Coach Smith could attract more attention and get a larger crowd of young ladies in two minutes on the corner of Main and Capitol, should he stand still that long, than he can by star ing a contest for which he has sweat (Continued tin Page 4.) DRAMATIC CLUB STAGE ONE-ACT COMEDY FOR STUDENTS OF SCHOOL The one act comedy, "Who's Going to Win Him?" was presented before the student body in assembly February 6 by the John R. Bender Dramatic club. The play was given under the direction of Mrs. Lillian Blocker. The play was enjoyed to the utmost by an appreciative audience- The parts of Squire Brushleigh,. played by Byron Sadler and Arotella In the person of Allen Pickette are particularly well rendered. Garnett Burman, who was to take the part of Squire Brushleigh, was unable to be present and Byron'Sadler very graciously consented to take his place. The cast was as follows: Cyril Dashwood . Robert Cole Mr. Prattjow Primrose Garland Sadler Squire Brushleigh . Garnett Burum Rose Dorothy Dixon Sylvia . Bernice Newton Minuetta Opal Reane Musidora Paye Ledlow Arotella Alleen Pickett A WORD TO THE WISE. (With Apologies.) So study, that when the summons comes to join that great caravan which moves to the great halls, where each shall take his finals within those silent halls, thou go not like the foolish student, cramming at night, but sustained and aided by unfaltering knowledge, approach the exams like unto one who wraps the mantle of wisdom around him and sits down to perfect work.
