Transcript STUDENT VIEWS COLLEGE NEWS THE COUGAR PUBLISHED BY THE JOURNALISM STUDENTS OF THE HOUSTON JUNIOR COLLEGE DON'T MISS FRIDAY'S DANCE HOUSTON, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1933 Pen Points New students, this Cougar is dedicated to you! The entire Cougar staff has worked diligently in an effort to make this paper of interest to you. We hope you'll enjoy reading every word of it—from the front page to the sports. By reading the Cougar it is our aim for you to become better acquainted with the student activities and to make this college your college. The old students are proud of this school and they want you to be. They wish that you co-operate with us and enter into all student activities. There's a special place in every organization in our institution for you and we are asking you to join in our activities. The sooner you get the good ol' H. J .C. spirit the happier your school days will be. One of the outstanding events of the season has been the remarkable record of the H. J. C. girls' basketball team. This sport has become one of the most prominent in our college and is headed for bigger and better things. To win eight games out of ten is a record— and something to think about. You may not play basketball, but you should certainly be interested enough to go see the games and root for your team. While giving bouquets, let's compli ment Avis Parks and Doris McVickers for their splendid performance in basketball games, also Mary Lou Gaines, Cisco Kellogg, Ruth Sparks, Jill Jenkins and LaVerne Ferguson We've mentioned the boys' glee club before. After their remarkable performance in assembly recently we are even prouder of them. They are giving our school one of the essentials that it needs along cultural lines, Education is of no avail unless applied. And it is certainly being applied by Cortis Lawrence, who is enrolled as a journalism student in our college. Miss Lawrence has been named editor of the "Shell Shock", special paper edited for Shell Refinery employes. The paper is well edited and is something new in the way of special papers which many companies edit, as it has withdrawn from the usual line of obvious advertising and is both newsy and interesting. Much credit goes to Miss Lawrence—she is a student to be proud of. The students' association dance is over. According to financial reports —it wasn't very successful, but it was obvious that the many couples enjoyed the affair. We profit by our mistakes. Probably in the future more interest among the student body as a whole can be aroused. Many students, prominent in our school activities, failed the student association by not attending the dance. Maybe they had good reasons for disappointing us, but if every student unable to attend had sold at least one bid—our association wouldn't be worrying about the debt created, but would have been able to give our sociation the money so badly needed for the loan fund. Spring is in the air and with the spring comes many thoughts of social events the school will enter into this year. One thing we should begin looking forward to is the annual Junior College reception for senior high students of Houston. According to the five senior high principals over the city there will be one of the largest graduating classes ever brought together at one time and the annual reception this year should be a success. Another thought concerns the col- (Continued on Page 2) FROSH RECEPTION IS ON SCHEDULE FOR FRIDAY NITE Special privileges granted for the first time allow activity ticket-holders and ex-students to attend the freshman reception next Friday night in the gym. Ted Clifford's orchestra will begin playing for dancing shortly after 9:30; intermissions will be filled by special entertainment. Planned to acquaint new and old students, this dance is usually limited to members of Junior College. At this time, ex-students must get special permits from Mrs. Bender before the dance, but surprisingly there are no other restrictions. The entertainment at intermissions will probably be furnished by several heated battles between ambitious pugilists. As this is the second freshman reception of this Junior College term, no class distinctions between host and guest will be made. At the first freshman reception of the term the cry was "garlic for the freshman"; now the cry is changed to "frolic for the freshman". The usual transportation committee arrangements will be announced sometime this week by Jimmie Brinkley who has charge of arrangements for the dance. Varied entertainment is offered by the contrasts of Ted Clifford's smooth, sophisticated type of music, added to by the alto voice of Madora Leach, and the fiery, ferocious actions of the boxers. By startling innovations such as this, committee members expect to make the reception a resounding sue- Both the activity tickets of students and the special permits issued by Mrs. Bender will be good for two people. President Jimmie Brinkley hopes to get the whole college out for this big dance, as admittance costs nothing, and transportation is assured. The orchestra which has already proven its ability at the freshman prom and the student association dance has been chosen. BOYS' CLUB OFFICIALS Officers of the Guild Savant are pictured below.

MORE DIARY BY JAMES JULIAN With tears in his eyes and a lump in his throat. Feb. I. Well, hero I am back at school after the holla rdays. I went home for a few days and then went up to Kenton to while away some time. Kenton is wear Mary Coston lives that is kinda the resun I went up there. Her brother who I do not know sent me a letter telling me that they were going to have a wide open house and invited me to come to it. Mama said Mary reely was inviting me but she just had her bro. do it to be in with convention. So I hied up to Kenton. And does Mary live in a beautiful house. It has at least a couple of dozen rooms and a doz. baths to go with them. Mary met me at the train in a great big lin- bozine with a showfur and everything. We drove a long ways over the hills and when we got up to her place she started presentin me to all the guests. She told them that I was a real good football player and stuff like that. I kinda blushed and got red in the face. She staid with me the whole time I was there. 1 reckon what she told was true but you know a man don't like to have folks braggin about him all the time. One fellow asked me to have something to drink and I told him I would rather have something to eat. When he insisted that I drink with him I told him I didn't drink. Not even beer he says. Well, root beer, I answered. So he told the buttler, who is a fellow who wares a monkey suit and the door bell, to bring me something which I never heard of. I started drinking it when the butteler gave it to me. This don't taste like root beer, I said. So he said it's beer without the root Then he laffed. Then I asked him what it had in it. Hoppers he said so I drank it. After drinking two more I felt just like I did the day I slipped off behind the barn and smoked a cigar. It just made me feel kinda dizzy. That night I started to bed; Mary's bro. sent his valley (a valley is a feller who helps you dress and undress) in to see if everything was Jake with me. I told him yes and got in bed. He came back after leaving with some pugjamas and tole me to put them on. No I said. I have been sleeping in a night shirt for twenty-one years and I reckon one is still good enough. He started in saying how cumptable I might be and every other word was Sir. 1 kinda liked him since he was the only person who had ever said sir to me. Feb. 8. So much has been happening lately that I sure have been busy. In fact I ain't even had time to write about it in this diry. I been studying hard and everything but I got in trouble in my Econimics class. The prof (which is short for professor) was talking about how much money is wasted in the U- S. every year. Then he said for example the average spends $50 a yr, for corsets. What a waiste I said, meaning in money, but he must have thought I meant some other thing because he ast me to leve the room. Feb. 10. Mary and I went to a show last night and saw Marlina Digaditch. She is that germ man lady who wares men's pants. Thare aint nothing left for men to do that women aint already done. The lady folks have cut there hare short like men; they smoke like men; they ware pants that look like men, and lots of other things. About the only thing that man has got left is a husky voice and ^ beard. And I betcha it gets to be a stile for lady folks to go around putting hare-restorer on there faces to grow beards just like men. This Marlina woman sure is a beautiful lady though. While I was sittin in the show (and even next to Mary) I got to feeling kinda funny inside. And the more I looked at this Marlina woman the funnier I felt. I felt a kinda slow suffericating feeling with lumps in my throat. Marlina does that to a man. The comedy at the show was funny. It was about a guy named Roscoe Ants who stutters. I sure would like to hear him try to say "cristhemamthemums" which is the name of a flower. It was so funny that I laffed real loud and (Continued on Page 3) FIGHTING COUGARS FAIL TO FIGHT AT ICE RINK Junior College's ice hockey team had a most unusual record for the past season. A recapitulation shows that the Cougar puck-pushers lost no games, won none, and played the same number. In other words the team did not see action from the actual competitive standpoint. This was, no doubt, due to the unexpected early closing of the rink; and to the fact that none of the league teams showed any desire to book games with the Junior College icers. The team was handicapped by not having a galaxy of veteran skaters, but as the season grew older the Cougars rounded in to shape as to be able to put up a good fight against any of the league teams. Team members have expressed the desire that Jack Potter be thanked for his much-needed assistance as coach, and that Mr. Eckhardt, rink manager, be notified of the team's appreciation of his cooperation. Last season's lineup follows: Billy Fitzgerald, left wing (captain) ; Tom Crawford, left wing; Harry Flavin, center; Ed Cadena, right wing; Eddie Chemosky, right wing (manager); Mayo Albert, left defense; Jesse Darling, right defense; Starks Green, goalie; Charles Miller, spare; and Harry Gray, spare. L. B. Fields To Address HJ.C. Men's Faculty Club L, B. Fields, Houston Junior College instructor of engineering drawing, will address the Faculty Club Wednesday, February 22, when he will discuss that subject The program for the club is to study the aims of college teaching, and how to obtain them. Each member will discuss the particular aims and methods of his field. Although most of the plans for the coming term are indefinite, Mr. Rees, president of the club, stated that he expects the club to be prominent in the affairs of the school. Officers of the Faculty Club are: Mr. Rees, president; Mr. Bishkin, vice- president; Mr. Kerbow, secretary; and Mr. Henderson, chairman of the steering committee.
