Return Game with
Local Team to Have Grudge
Battle with Sam Houston
Reserves Saturday on Local
The Houston Junior College Cou-
, gars will play a return game with
the Sam Houston Teachers College,
Saturday, November 1, at San Ja-
j cinto field. The game will be called
at 2:30 p.m.
The Cougars are out to avenge a
25-0 drubbing plastered on them last
Saturday at Huntsville and Coach
Joe Kirk's charges will be in for a
The reserves opened the season
with a 24-0 defeat, nanded to them
by the San Jacinto Golden Bears.
Blinn Memorial College also turned
back the Bearkats. But Coach Joe
Kirk's proteges promise the Cougar
eleven plenty of trouble in the personages of R. H. Burk and Morris
Haltom, two 200-pounders who hold
down the tackle positions.
On November 7, the Victoria Junior
College will come to Houston. Little
has been heard from the Victoria
bunch but lots can be expected.
Bryan, Texas, is the next objective
of the Cougars, who engage there
the Allen Academy Cadets. This
struggle will give ample opportunity
for action and thrills. The Cadets recently swamped Westminster Junior
College 47-0. Allen, Gillman, Lewis,
and Pratt shine in the backlield for
One of the strongest opponents of
the season will be met on November
15. when the Lutheran Junior College
Bulldogs come to Houston. This
strong aggregation defeated Kingsville
and St. Mary's Rattlers, but lost to
the Edinburg Junior College Bronchos. Lutheran also defeated Blinn
Memorial 25-0. "Chick" Daimhaus of
the backfield seems to be the big
threat for the Bulldogs.
Another foe, not to be taken too
lightly is Coach Nemir's Blinn Memorial Junior College of Brenham,
Texas. The Memorial boys sent the
S. H. S. T. reserves home with a 13-0
defeat, and did the same to St. Edwards of Austin, 25-0.
Dipple and Ware seem to form a
very effective passing combination,
which the Cougar backfield men will
have to watch closely. God by, an
end, is also a pass snatcher of merit.
He tips the scales at 190 pounds and
towers 6 feet 6 inches. Stinclicomb
fits in with his mates very nicely,
helping to form a dangerous set,
which will prove to be destructive
H.J.C. Held To Scoreless Tie

In a game played at San Jacinto

GAINS 25-0 DECISION
ON JUNIOR COLLEGE
Cougars Weaken in Final Period Before Hard Driving of
Reserve Forwards; Barziza,
Marasek and Jones Star.
Playing a great defensive game for
three periods the Houston Junior
College withered in the final period
before a slashing running attack by
the Sam Houston Teachers College
reserves and were swamped by a
score of 25-0.
Twice the reserves swept up the
field in the opening quarter only to
be stopped inside tbe five-yard line.
The Cougar offense was helpless before the hard-charging reserves' Eor-
'd wall. The Cougars were very
unfortunate as not once did they
have a chance to open their offense.
The reserves piled up 17 first downs
to the Cougars' three.
Helped with a 15-yard penalty and
pass, Walker to Ruff, put the ball
on the Cougars' one-yard line as the
third quarter ended after three unsuccessful attempts were killed at
the line of scrimmage. Dick Richards, piledriving fullback, dove over
the line for the touchdown. Speer
missed the try for point.
Several minutes later Richards
scampered around letf end for 30
yards and touchdown. His drop-kick
for point was wide.
The Cougars, still fighting hard,
quit their defensive tactics and open-
up their air attack. Walker intercepted one of Bertrand's heaves and
runirng behind perfect interference
lor 35 yards scored the third touchdown. Walker passed to Irwin for
The Cougars played a bang-up defensive game until McKibben, stellar
halfback, went out with injuries.
Barziza, Jonesi, and Maresek were
outstanding for the locals.

It is football time and there is a
band of huskies that works out every
night under the lights of San Jacinto
field in an attempt to build a team
that will carry the Blue and White
of the Junior College through a successful season.
Thus far the Cougar team has not
shown up as well as was expected but
after consideration has been made of
the difficulties and hardships under
which Coach French and his charges
perform, it is found that the team has
Practice begins after classes are
over every school night and lasts
until midnight or later. This is an
obstacle to the players who, almost to
a man, work at full-time jobs. In
spite of this fact, however, tbe members of the squad continue to show
their love of the game by meeting
regularly and taking their lot with a
One of the outstanding players of
the team is Donald McKibben who
bails from Conroe. "Bone-Crusher'"
has come to be known as the backbone of the team and his absence
from the line-up in Saturday's game
will weaken the team considerably.
Heights has made a generous contribution to the team in the personages of Sam Kalmans, "Frog" Barziza, "Platter" Marasek, "Dutch"
Jones, Willard Nesmith. and Jimmy
Moulden. These six men are certain
to see service Saturday and have contributed much to the splendid fight
that the team hus thus far shown.
Marshall "Vic" Welhorn, a former
student from Sam Houston, has been
out of the game for some time with
a dislocated shoulder but will probably be available for service in another week.
Edwin Oshe has also been a victim
of injuries and will be unable to take
his place in the line-up for a couple
Bill Cox takes his football seriously
and has developed into a hard-hitting
fullback who knows how to get an
extra yard when needed.
Jimmle Moulden was converted
from a star trackman at Reagan High
into a splendid end who shares the
wing positions with Warden and
Matthews, tbe two lettermen.
Jim Bertrand is the most adept
member of the team at running the
halfback position as it should he run
in those powerful smashes at the
tackles that resolve into cub-backs
through the secondary defense.

Maurine Edninister: How's that?
Bill Jeter: I gave her the wron
