Jimmie Brinkley had previously been elected president of the asosciation. Harold Bell Renfro was elected vice president and Lillian Schwartz secretary-treasurer. The president had been elected and names had been placed in nomination at the previous meeting, October 5, but due to the lack of time the election of a vice president and a secretary - treasurer was postponed until the later meeting.

The association plans to sponsor several dances and other forms of entertainment during the present school year. Plans are rapidly being made for a Students Association dance and for the institution of an Alumni dance, for which all past students of the college as well as those now in school will be eligible. Plans also will be made for the Second Annual Junior College Picnic, which will be held some time during the spring term. Definite announcements about the various entertainments will be made at a later date. H. J. C. PROFESSOR ON RADIOPROGRAM Harris Called "The Professor" on Series of Tuesday Broadcasts Harvey W.

KEEN COMPETITION EXISTS BETWEEN TWO SALES TEAMS Feeling is running high between the girls' and boys' teams, and competition is keen in the race for ticket honors, a dance and personal rewards, in the drive for more financial aid in behalf of the Houston Junior College student loan fund. Harvsy W. Harris, boys' leader in the drive, presented a plan to the assembly by which the fund may be increased materially; this plan was received with approval by all present The students are to sell tickets to Harry Girard's light opera, The Maid of Manalay, to be presented November 8, 9 and 10 by the Elks Lodge, and the Junior College will receive half of all opening night receipts as a gift from the Lodge plus an additional fourth on all Junior College tickets presented the first night.

FIFTEEN WORDS By ADOLPH MARKS "And ladies and gentlemen of the radio audience," continued the adroit announcer, 'Here is the slogan which won the weekly award of a brand new, 1932, Erskine tudor sedan for Mrs. H. J. Anderson of Tucson, Arizona. Fifteen words, no more no less * * * * Superior quality, appealing design, and finer workmanship elect Schayffers as the world's greatest pen value. * * * * Oh! what a slogan ladies and gentlemen, and it brings out the lifetime qualities of Schayffers, the great American Fountain pen value * * * * You have an cqua' chance to win, radio listeners, and all you have to do is ourchase any of the famous Schayffer Fountain Pen and Pencil produces, write your fifteen word slogan on thi reverse side of ' he entry blank that will be given you with your article, and mail ti_< the Schayffer Fountain Pen and Pencil Company, Newark. Ne*v Jersey." This led innocent Oscar Perkins to expend $7.23 all at one time during these hours of depression for a Schayf- fer's Double Lifetime fountain pen with i non-rust able point in order to get one entrance blank toward the coveted Erskine. Three nights after his double lifetime purchase, Oscar Perkins had fountain pen on the brain. Instead of counting sheep to tempt a good night's sleep, Oscar was counting words. Fifteen, no more, no less. Mosquitos were bad in Austin that night, and one drilled into Oscar's cheek as he lay there, and after he slapped at it viseiously, he scratched and scratched, and scratched, and as he scratched, he dozed, and as he dozed he hit upon the One Idea. Because of their newly developed irridium point, Schayffer's Double Lifetime fountain pens did NOT SCRATCH, and then Oscar Perkins jumped from his bed in genuine delight. "I've got it, I've got it, I've got it!!!" he shouted, and he fairly flew to the dresser where the precious pen was The pen was there, and the paper also, and the idea was, too. An so Oscar sat down to win an Erskine in the middle of the night. He didn't even stop to get a drink of water. Pen in hand, Oscar suddenly stopped. I've got to get that scratching idea into 15 ■ )rds." He figured and pondered, thought and copied, crumpled and re-copied, and then his mind clicked. "Genuine irridium tipped, the point of a Schayffer pen guarantees against nscdless scratching and splotching."— "What an idea, and now to get it in writing." But unluckily, the Schayffer was empty as a flask after the holidays, and poor, bedraggled Oscar Perkins spent an unhappy half hour searching for the ink. He stepped on three pins during the search, and stumped his little toe to drive the bargain. But he got the ink. Again he sat down to win his car, but this time he was slightly peeved, however, he began lo write:— ,ncdjhdz " G - e - n - u-i-n-e i-r-r-i-d-i-u-m t-i-p-p," and then the pen stopped wiiting. The ink had ceased to flow, <-nd ugly, repelling scratches spelled out 'he remaining "e-d-." He shook the pen and mumbled a few utterances under his breath. Then the pen began to write, but before it did so, it dropped a fair sized splotch of ink on the one and only entry blank, not helping its already scratchy appearance. Oscar began, again: "T-h-e p-o-i-n-t o-f a S-c-h-a-y-f-f-e-r g-u-a-r-a-n- t-e-e-s a-g-a-i-n-s-t n-e-e-1-e-s-s And then the genuine irridium point (Continued on Page 4) DON AITKEN CHOSEN AS SOPH PRESIDENT FOR CURRENT YEAR KERBOW SAYS FAIR PLAY In Speech Before Enthusiastic Audience in Auditorium Donald Aitken was elected President of the Sophomore Class of Houston Junior College last Friday, in a special sophomore meeting in the Auditorium. The meeting with Mr. Alva Lee Kerbow presiding as Sponsor of of the sophomore class. Donald Aitken, Hampton Robinson, Patrick Foley, and Jesse Darling were nominated for the presidency. A motion for cessation of nominations was then received by acting chairman Jimmy Brinkley and Donald Aitken was immediately elected. A feature of the election was the refusal of Donald Aiken to receive his first nomination. Donald understood that the Soohomore President should graduate with the Senior Class in June, and, as he will not do so, he declined the nomination. A short talk by Mr. Kerbow and a few words by Mr. Dupre dispelled all Donald's doubts hawever, and he accepted. A few statements by Mr. Kerbow advocating fair, square play to and by everyone opened the meeting and set the students' minds upon the important business in hand. "I am opoosed to crooked politics," stated Mr. Kerbow. "I want fair play to everyone; nothing will be railroaded through this mreting, for the choice of the majority must rule. But most of all, I want unity in the Soohomore Class. No matter who is elected, I want you to cooperate with and help him to the best of your ability." Jimmie Brinkley, as acting chairman, :moressed the fact upon the assembly that, as the officer elected must serve until June, care and serious thought should dictate their choice of a presi- The meeting decided to vote three times, each time dropping the candidate with the least number of votes. As each candidate was dropped, his adherents voted for a remaining favorite. Aitken as President of the Soohomore Class, gave a short acceptance speech acknowledging and thanking 'he class for the honor bestowed upon DRAMATIC CLUB HOLDS MEETING; WILL STAGE PLAY DURING NOV.
