An athletic young co-ed w'th boyish bob and fascinating smile—that's FAY GENE LAURENCE. Oh, girls! PETE GARRISON says, "March is women's month,—windy." A Central'te,—and aparently proud of it—is MAURINE KEACH destined for bigger tilings. We have 200 pounders here, too! Studious (with apologies to R*p- ley) is TEB WARDEN, matriculating at the Houston Law school (adv.), carrying courses at the Houston Junior college, working (?), and at the same time holding down end on that superb team of our "Alma Mammy." Jubilant and enthusiastic over Junior college are RENA MAI BUTLER, GLADYS KUYKENDALL, ALLYNE ALLEN—all still healthy despite the late hours. Oh, Boy! Who's that adorable kid coming down the stairs now? Why ADELE DRENKLE, of course. B tiful, but not dumb. MARY GEORGE HARRIS, is glad she didn't go to Rice since she ha met—Jun or college—(Ha, Tooled y again). Several Rice studes seem to prefer H. J. C, f'r instance--"LEFTY- MORRIS. "Let'Uy" was vice president of our freshman class and co- captain of our fotball team last year. Maybe its not H. J. C. that .he prefers, probably just—our blondes. With the season at hand when the pigskin heroes are biting the dust of the gridirons throughout the country and since our own team ing the rush of oncoming battles this bit of verse catches and holds our This column is devoted ot poems composed by students of H. J. C. All interested college students are requested to submit their compositions to the COUGAR for future publica- HALLOWE'EN There's mischief in the air! All of Satan's hosts Have made of It their lair, .And filled the world with ghosts. There's mystery astir! Spirits of dead leaves All float down in a blur From solemn ghosts of trees. There's Hallowe'en anon! Frightened children hark To witches riding on Their brooms out in the dark. There's spooky fun ahead! Owls out in the night Fill all with silent dread, F.l! all with Quaking fright. —Kenneth Phillips. Very much in keeping with the season, Kenneth, and you are quite "up and coming" as a rfoet. Someday we'll be saying "I knew him when—." SING A SONG OF COLLEGE LIFE Readin' and writin' and 'rithmetic— Oh! how the "profs" try to teach us. Surely, fellows, we shouldn't kick When the grades we get don't suit us. Just think of the time it takes them To give us the proper dope. We ought to try and think hard when -e close to the end of the rope. Petite LLEWELLYN ROSS seems to be a magnet for Rice frosh,—judging from appearances. SCHOLARSHIP- (Continued from page 1) set the scholarship as their goal, and strive to win it. To open the assembly. Willard Nesmith sang several popular numbers, wh'ch were well received by the students.

Miss German is now studying in Greenwich Village of New York City, We are very proud that she could contribute to the COUGAR. QUIETUDE Weary and worn, On a hilltop. Whispering winds; Murmuring pines; Beauty of earth,— Silence of soul,— Peace. —Verna German. ILLUSION I always thought of Love As of a lace valentine. Something made of p'nk and white rosebuds, Lavender-edged ribbons, And crisp paper frills. Then you came . . . With eager, searching hands, tore away the fanciful lace trimmings, The colored bits of toys and ribbons; And left revealed Beneath Ihe tattered fragments . . . -Dorothy McGraw WEDDING BELLS ring out again!
