Bender It is only fair that we should know something about John R. Bender, official coach of Junior College. Coach Bender, M. A., M. S-, LLM., was the most versatile athlete that the Corn- huskers ever turned out. He letterd in the four major sports and was picked All-Missouri Valley and All-American fullback for three years. He has coached many winning teams and before coming to Houston was Freshman athletic director at Texas A. & M. College, as well as professor of Physical Education. Under his experienced hands Houston Junior College will soon take a leading part in all athletics. In addition to directing athletics. Coach Bender offers attractive courses in physical education and hygiene. St. Thomas and Cougars, o-io On Thursday, March 29, the St. Thomas and Cougar baseball teams clashed and fought to a 10 to 10 tie. Many hits and errors were made, but the score was always so close that there was doubt until the last. Ted Warden took the batting honors of the day, knocking the only home run. Jimmy Reed, pitcher for St. Thomas, allowed 13 hits, of which the Cougars made 10 good. The game was called at the end of the seventh inning. Batteries: Cougars: Bilao and Guseman; St. Thomas: Reed and Garret. ENROLLMENT TO OROW NEXT YEAR Garland Sadler "Seventy per cent of those annually applying for admittance into the major colleges and universities are refused because of the lack of proper facilities, and this number must either receive training in the junior college or be deprived of an education," stated F. M. Black, dean of Houston Junior College, in answer to a question concerning the importance of the college and its anticipated growth. "Within a few years it is our intention to have our own building with school hours more conveniently arranged." Sees More Enrollment "Prospects for a large enrollment in the college next year are indeed bright as we are annually graduating more than 1200 students from our high schools and we are sure that a large number will register here. "The quality of work being done in the Houston Junior College is equal to that being done anywhere. Our faculty is an excellent one. They not only know something but they know how to teach it." Mr. Black is thoroughly competent to speak on any phase of educational work. He has served continuously in the Houston public school system for the past 23 years. Mr. Black came to Houston in 1905. immediately after graduating from Southwestern University, to serve as instructorof mathematics in Houston's only high school. Shortly after, Mr. Black was accorded the honor of being appointed the first head of the department of mathematics in a Houston high school. Serves as Principal Jn 1908 he was appointed principal of Longfellow School and sered in that capacity until 1911 when he was transferred to Travis School. Resigning from that position in 1914 Mr. {Continued on Page Three) All Plans Completed For! Easter Hop, Big Social j Event of Year By Mary E. Rigg With the passing of Lent and the approach of Easter marking revival of social affairs for spring, the Houston Junior College will have as its outstanding event—a dance which will be held at Kensington Hall, Tuesday, April 20. The Kensington orchestra will furnish the music, and dancing will be enjoyed from 9 p. m. to a. m. Plans are rapidly being completed and the members of the school social committee have been kept busy making arrangements for decorations and the program, although none of the dance committee will divulge facts in regard to either. Colors: Blue and White However, mysterious whispering has revealed the fact that the color scheme will follow the Junior College colors, royal blue and white.

E. Oberholtzer, president of the College, replied in terms of high praise and commendation for the successful achievements during the past year, and predicted that the Houston Junior College would soon rank high among the educational institutions of the state. Dr. Oberholtzer's message to the faculty and students is as follows: "I wish to extend my cordial greetings and congratulations to the faculty and student body as the first year of the Houston Junior College draws near its close. "I am greatly delighted with the fine spirit displayed by the student (Continued on Page Three) AFFILIATION IIS NOW NEAR ESTARLISHED Students Transferring From Houston Junior College Not Require Entrance Exams Houston Junior College will no doubt be affiliated with the Association of Texas Colleges Colleges within the present month as the result of an inspection of the college last Wednesday by E. J. Matthews, registrar of the University of Texas and representative of the Texas Association of Colleges. Mr. Matthews had nothing but praise for the accomplishments of the Junior College. He expressed himself rather freely about its success and progress and said that he expected to recommend the Junior College to the Texas Committee on College Standards for full affiliation in its two years of work. The committee will meet April 27-28 for consideration of Mr. Matthews' recommendation. If the committee reports favorably to the general association the Houston Junior College becomes officially a junior college of A-grade rank. This means that the two years of (Continued on Page Three) An Editorial (Continued on Page Two) "Mental development ceases when a man no longer changes his mind," said a psychological expert in discussing the laborious stages in the onward march of civilization. What the psychologist said about the mind of man is true in a great measure of the development of any institution. Change is the cornerstone of human progress, the motivating power in a relentless striving for that unattainable i Utopia called perfection. The difference between an intelligent man and a moron lies in the ability to weigh and consider, to cast aside fixed beliefs which are often delusions and to become subject to that great metamorphosis which men call progress. The Cougar, believing in this elementary principle, will from month to month offer constructive criticism, not criticism calculated to destroy what others have built up through painstaking efforts, but criticism designed to point out flaws in the finished structure—flaws which perhaps have escaped the eyes of those engaged in building the super-structure. The editorial staff of this paper does not set itself up as the power plenipotentiary of the throng, nor does it seek to dictate the policies of the college or its individual students. It intends merely to act as a spectator among the throngs, seeing perhaps a little more clearly because it looks more intently at the problem at hand. District Meet Here Apr. 13 Houston Junior College is to sponsor the Twenty-Second District University of Texas Interscholastic League events during the month of April. Among the events will be declamation, debating, dramatic and athletic contests. On April 13 and 14, all athletics, including tennis meets, will be jat Rice Institute field. The tennis games for the girls will be played at j the San Jacinto courts. This is a real "break*' for the Houston Junior College. This institution is | fast becoming a leader among the 'junior colleges of the state, and has [already begun to assume a position j of importance and responsibility in [educational circles. H. J. C. Captures Two First Places In the recent track meet between San Jacinto and Milby high schools, the Junior College was allowed to take part, winning two first places. Bryon Sadler won the 440 yard dash in the time of 56 seconds. Guy Savage won the high jump with a five foot seven inch jump. All of which goes to show that there is some athletic ability in the Junior College if it is only applied. San Jacinto won the meet by a large number of points.
