Transcript umaMTtiu. HOUSTON, TEXAS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1930 Apparently students tail to realize that smoking is against the rules of the Junior College. Probably many of! those offendiilg students forget that they are restricted in this matter, and do so merely as a matter of habit and not in a direct attempt to break a rule oE the college. The school board, in allowing the night use of the San Jacinto High School, required that the rule against smoking in the building be rigidly enforced. Mr. Dupree has done all in his power to see that this nrom'se should be fulfilled. But it is impos' sible for one person, even though acting In an olficial caapcity, to enforce a rule of this nature. Aside from that fact, however, is it not a fact also that the students of Houston Jun'or College are a self- styled group of law-abiding citizens? Assuming that such is the case, it appears to us that a request In the form here given should be sufficient to cause the rule against smoking In the build:ng to be enforced as a matter of personal pride on the part of each student. The recent primary election of officers for the Students' Association was the biggest Hop on record in the history of Jun'or College affairs. In the first place, the directors of the election handled it in very poor style. No exact information as to tbe details of balloting was at the disposal of the student body. No information was dispensed generally as to the time, place or manner of balloting. Announcements in the cafeteria on Tuesday and Wednesday served to inform approximately third of the student body as to what was to occur. Of th's third, only one-third was interested enough to vote. Eighty-seven s t u d e n ts cast ballots. At that, 12 per cent is not representation of the group ested in Junior College affairs. Six per cent attendance at a football game would exc te editorial comment in several loeal daily newspapers and perhaps a casual pun from the scathing tongue of a popular Houston weekly. As to the election of yell leadi one must be shocked at the lack of information pertaining to the relative candidates. The affair In this regard has excited much comment from members of the student body which if published would furnish grounds for libel charges. Charges alleging the operationg of a clique, charges claiming tainted politics, and counter-charges of varied natures have resulted from the election. All of which will serve merely as a bone of contention among those niak'ng the charges. It Is high time that an organiza tion of the students, operated by the students under legally sanctioned thority, shall be placed in charge of student affairs and have under its jurisdiction all matters pertain'ng student government and policies. This column sincerely hopes that tbe powers-that-be shall soon be convinced that student government must come and that they will allow the Junior College to take its place among the scores of other institut'ons that have found internal co-operation in such an arrangement. COUGAR COLLEGIAN PRESIDENT There is no more effective college organization than the Cougar Colle- s. popularly known as the Girls Pep Club, of which Hazel Taylor is he popular and efficient leader. HAZEL TAYLOR FIRST CONSTITUTION FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE CLASS IS ADOPTED Legalized, class activities are in store for tbe sophomores as soon as r new constitution goes into effect. Meeting with Robert McCullough, president of the sophomore class, Margaret Boyett, Tom Walker, Helen Lee Davis, Jane Witberspoon, Hazel Taylor, Edward Bennett, Harry Seaman, Max Ludtke, Willard Nesmith, Peie Garr'son, and Bill Jeter, all ac- tice upperclassmen, decided to formulate the first constitution any class in the Jun'or College has adopted. The purpose of the constitution is to legalize all the actions of the sophomore class. Provided the activities they sponsor are within proper bounds, the officers of the class will be free to act oh their own judgment, w'thout the burden of outside comment or criticism. The members of the committee were chosen because of the part they have taken in student activities. NEW INSTRUCTOR ADDED TO ENLARGED FACULTY Due to the increased enrollment, Mrs. B. M. Ebaugh, instructor of English, joined the Houston Junior College faculty last week. Mrs. Ebaugh conies to H. J. C. from Newcombe College. New Orleans, La., where she has been engaged in teaching Latin for the past three years. She received her B.A. degree from Newcombe College in 1925, and M.A. degree from Columbia diversity in 1927. At present, Mrs. Ebaugh is teaching only one class, but it is hoped that she will become a full-time in- DRAMATIC CLUB NOTICE The John R.

PEP CLUB ENJOYS WEEK-END OUTING AT CASA DEL MAR Stunts and Initiations Feature Cougar Collegians Sojourn at Bay Shore. "Lin-i-ment," a three-act play, writ- n by Celia Lasky, and "E'glit Stages of a Woman's Life," planned by Lu- cile Cafcalas, given as stunts by the sophomores and freshmen, respectively, were the main features of the ; week-end outing of the Pep Club at Casa del Mar. In the first! act o| "Lin-bmenl Hazel Taylor, bride, and Celia Lasky, ! groom, were united in marriage, with Rev. Ezekiel (Margaret Boyett) reading the service. The bride wore a long white gown, with a veil fashioned from a window curtain. She entered with Lewellyn Ross, trainbearer, who came "sweeping in" with two straw brooms. The groom, who had a very red nose, was dressed in white trousers and dark coat and wore a straw "Katy." The marriage proved unsuccessful in the second act, but a complete reconciliation was effected at last. Dorothy Lasky, three years old; Ce- cile Taylor, six years old; Allyne Allen, high school girl; Marion Banta, college girl; Maurine Reach, debutante; Gladys Kuykendall, bride; Nora Louise Calhoun, mother, and Eleanor Stanfield, grandmother, were dressed to effectively portray the eight stages in a woman's life. More than 20 members of the Pep Club, with Mrs. Pearl Bender and Miss Sue Thomason, sponsors, gathered around an open fireplace, Saturday night, on the sun porch at Casa del Mar, for the first business meeting of the term where no time limit was set. A lengthy discussion followed in which several important problems were brought before the club by Hazel Taylor, who presided over the meeting. When the meeting adjourned, the members were enthusiastic over the plans for a bigger and better Pep Club. Initiation of the Pep Club freshmen was fully carried out by the sophomores. Soon after arriving at Casa del Mar, the beds were made for the night. Freshmen did this under sophomore supervision. Penalties were assessed for neglect of duty. Dorothy Lasky, the first transgressor, counted 1736 boards in the Y. W. C. A. pier. All freshmen girls were given the opportunity to do K. P. duty at regular meal times as well as at the mldn'ght lunch. Recitations, in which freshmen proved themselves to be decidedly tongue-tied, songs and tests were part of the initiation. Mary Jo Elliot won first place in a cracker eating contest, and Menalee Garrett was winner of a difficult foot race. Genevieve Weldon and Maurine Ed- m'nister, Pep Club members, came down Saturday night with Howard Branch and Terry Russ for a short visit. Sunday morning a short service was held; songs were sung, Mrs. Bender read a Scripture lesson and offered a prayer. The Pep Club appreciated the hospitality of Mrs. Tryon, Casa del Mar hostess, the music furnished by Nelwyn Turner at the piano, and the transportation to and from the outing by Mozelle Mclieynolds. Howard Graham, Lewellyn Ross, Margaret Boyeft and Mrs. Bender. STUDENT ASSOCIATION HEAD The Students' Association endeavors to promote a variety of activities. Mr. Smith W. Garrison, popular sophomore and president of his class last year, has been elected president. THOMASON SUCCEEDS MACKEY AS SPONSOR OF GIRLS PEP CLUB The appo'ntment of Miss Thomason to succeed Miss Mackey as sponsor of the Cougar Collegians has been announced by Hazel Taylor, president of that organization. Miss Mackey has served as sponsor of the girls since the organ'zation of the club in 1927. She not only teaches physical education at Junior College, also at Jefferson Davis High School. Miss Mackey stated that it would be impossible for her to give to the club the attention that is necessary for its growth. Miss Thomason, the new sponsor, is well acquainted with the work of the club and has helped to make the plans for this year.
