ATHIRST FOR HIGHER KNOWLEGE H. J. C. ALUMNI AT RICE First of all, did you see Edwin Pat Quinn's beaming countenance in the paper when he was elected assistant yell leader at Rice? We are only too glad to claim "Pat" as a Junior College product of '29. Madie I.ea Hillyer. the jolly little red-headed girl, and Ellen Cleveland, her charming pal, are both in the schol of their dreams—Rice. And Lois Rose Dawson of the "golden" hair has enrolled there. She hopes to be "Doctor ' Dawson some day. Janeva Jacobs, who graduated from H. J. C. in '29, is a senior now—but Mr. Dupree still says she Is too young to be a lab assistant in Prof. Van Zee's classes. Weldon "Lefty" Morris has enrolled out there, and delighted the hearts of fans by going out for football. The only place we will miss him is on our team because he continues to hang around during classes. But how we will miss him on that team! Helen Batte, the young lady who did the Spanish dance with Dick Holmes in assembly last spring, is a senior this year. Reveris Eaves wishes to set your minds at rest—you prospective Rice students. Rice does accept H.J.C. mathematics credits. However, because they do not have an education course parallel to ours, they will not accept Education 113-123 from H. J. C. Only last week we caught a glimpse of Gertrude Beard as she breezed out Main Street to enroll for her junior year. She spent her freshman year with us. and was elected the most popular girl in '29. Eva Newman and Aline Otto are taking courses in Education this year, and intend to teach when they receive their degrees in '32. Helen Allnoch, who received her A. A. here last June, says that we will hear from her some day as an architect. Rice is lucky to get Helen. Rain or shine, Prances Foster can be depended on to make good, and be a credit to H. J. C. Lissabelle Crittenden will in all probability instruct mine and your children in Ihe Three R's some day. since she is studying to be a teacher. Did you know that she wag the girl honor graduate of the '30 class? Ethel Fallis. the petite brunette Aaron Kalmans trails, has also left us to enroll in Rice for her sophomore year. Katherine Jackson is a full-fledged senior now and is specializing in History. She spent her first two years here, receiving her A.A." in June '29. We learned from a friend that Para Lee Ingram, who was in H. J. C. the year it opened, is also a senior this Richard Speed, one of our most popular boys in 1927-8 is out at Rice. In addition to his studies, he works for Moody-Seagraves> And we must nft forget John "Black" Klaras, who is again at Rice. May he have better luck this time. His name was among those reporting tor freshman football practice. Of the students of 1927-8, we find that (lladys Hitchock who entered Rice In September 1928 Is "making good ' and is classed as a senior. We wish her well. Richard Stout, that quiet little fallow who minds his husiness and does considerable thinking, has left us for Rice. (Continued on page 4) Coach French Leads Huskies Againsf. Baylor in Opening Skirmish; Hard-Fought Battle Expected. Determined to revenge the 10-0 win registered by (he Baylor Cubs over last year's team, the Cougars will open their season tomorrow at Waco against a team fully as strong as the one last season. Although this is the first game of the season for the Junior College squad, all of the men have rounded Into good pTe- season form and are determined to give a good account of themselves. The squad of twenty-six men have worked earnestly with a view of making the starting eleven and Coach French has not yet decided on his starting line-up. All of the men are expected to make the trip and practically every one will see service against the Cubs. It is likely that Matthews and Warden will get the assignment on the wing positions. These two are letter men and are considered outstanding candidates for end positions. Coach French is rather worried about the tackle positions. Pease is sure of a place at tackle, but the other position is wide open. Kalmans, Staddard and one or two other promising candidates are likely to divide time at the other post. Pease, the husky lineman, who tips the scales at 220 pounds, is expected to be a power on both offense and defense. Rarziza and Lowe are likely choices at the guard positions, with a group of aspiring candidates held in reserve in; case these two big men fail to live np to expectations. Close,'the Conroe High product, is the otitsanding candidate for the pivot position. This lad is light, but scrappy, and it is hoped that he can live up to the standard set last year by Co-captain "Lefty" Morris. In the backfield Coach French has a wealth of talent from which to choose his starting line-up. Nesmith (Continued on page 41 COMING EVENTS October 4—Baylor Cubs October 11—St. Mary's at Houston.
