SOUTH PARK QUINT
DOWNS COUGAR FIVE
Beaumont Aggregation Grabs
Two Close Tilts
The Cougar quintet experienced defeat twice at the hands of South Park
college of Beaumont ill as many
starts last ween.
The first game, which was played
on the home court, was the first intercollegiate game this year for Junior
Scarbrough was high point man for
the homelings, and Alford of the
mont five was high point ma
the entire fracas. Jones and Bergin
showed to an advantage for the Cougars,
The game was heated rrom the first
to the last whistle, and not until the
last minute did the South Park boy
breath easily. South Park won th
game first as the whistle blew as a
result of two free throws.
The second game was played in
Beaumont and was also a heated affair. The entire squad journeyed
over in cars, with some few loyal supporters accompanying.
Out of twelve times for free throws
Junior College made six, while the
Beaumont five comujeted ten out of
fourteen. The scores of both games
were 20-18 and 20-21 respectively.

ed with the boys for weeks and
Of course our athletes are sort of
handicapped here because
hours of school. However, this does
not seem to be the main reason for
non-support. In one word this rea-
sn is "publicity" or rather lack of it.
Now that Mr. Birney's newly organ-
teed journalism class is undertaking
to put out five Issues of the nearly
petrified Cougar, we may arouse some
interest in the baseball and track
contests scheduled for this year.
This renewed interest in school
athletics and consequently renewed
interest of the students in each other, will probably relieve this tension
of the students who refuse to be recluses in such a place of potential
good fellowship. We just "ain't been
done right by," some may say. Others may more wisely say "we ain't
done right by ourselves."
So let's forbear a while longer and
not judge too harshly these talkative students in the library. They
may be our future school leaders
when they are given the proper encouragement.
Of course this doesn't have anything to do with our decadent social
life, but we were told confidentially
the other day that Ailleen Pickett
really isn't pigeon-toed. She's just
fooling the public.

Deep ruts are made when *:ars are
driven over the lawn. The pride felt
by students in their school and Its
surrounding campus is not increased
by seeing such ruts, nor is this method of conduct an especially laudable
way in which to express your peculiar individuality and "ego."
A little care on the part of persons driving cars in the drives sur
rounding this school will be appreciated by students and faculty of both
the Houston Junior College and the
San Jacinto High School.

four mouths. He has given up his time
to come out and help the Cougars,
trying to put our new school on fhe
map. If you think It is an easy task
to take care of! a football team's
property and make them comfortable
try it yourself, Louis has been loyal
to our school, and we should all give
him the glad hand.

find that they are interested in the
same things in which we American
students are interested.
"Through our brief period of asso
elation, we trust that you, our Aus
tralian brother, will carry back to
your friends in Australia a message
of friendship and love which we extend to you and through you to them.
Through this spirit of friendship as
students now, we will develop a spirit
of friendly competition when we are
other life occupations.
"We will be keen rivals, but we will
be loyal friends. We will strive to es
tablish liberty, equality and frater
nity for all the world. You will worl
to this end in Australia. We wil
strive toward this ambition here. But
will all be friends between
selves and with all the other nations
and peoples of the earth."
