Transcript THE COUGAR 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.

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.

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.

Folks, this boy has stuck to the college football and basketball teams through thick and thin every day for more thau 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. Australians— (Continued From Page 1.) brother students from Australia. We 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."
