COUGAR BEAUTIES ARE PRESENTED TO STUDENTS Nelda Smith and Ruth Depperman, winners of the Junior College beauty contest, were presented with floral offerings at the general assembly, Wednesday night, February 10. Miss Smith was the winner in the sophomore section and Miss Depperman won in the freshman division. The flowers were presented as a tribute to the two winners. Harvey W. Harris in making the presentation lauded the beauty of the two girls. "Beauty is its only excuse for being," Mr. Harris said. "We have our beautiful flowers, our beautiful birds, but our beautiful girls surpass everything else in sheer beauty." The San Jacinto high school band, under the direction of Seth W. Hen- ' derson, appeared on the same program. The band played several marches and an overture. W. H. MINER PRESENTS BOOKS TO LIBRARY Seven issues of The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science have been donated recently to the the Junior College library by W. H. Miner, history instructor. These publications cover the year of 1931 and include January, 1932. They should be of interest and value to the students of economics, government, and sociology. The MEGAPHONE, student publication of the Southwestern University, recently conducted a poll to determine * just what the student body expected of its publication. The paper seems to have satisfied most of the students as no one suggested any improvements. BOYS' DEBATING TEAM In eliminations held last week, Gordon Jones, Milford Smith, and Jimmy Brinkley were chosen to represent the Houston Junior college in state debate contests. ; | il - \ <9* * JH * * SPG* r —Courtesy The Houston Post.

JUNIOR COLLEGE LOSES 10 STUDENTS Approximately ten students left the Junior College at the beginning of the spring semester to continue their studies at other colleges. Four of these students enrolled in the University of Texas. These are A. J. Adams, Evelyn Horowitz, Ward Robertson, and Roberta McKee. Students enrolling in other colleges in this state are D. W. Safely, John Tarleton; Luelle Egg, College of Industrial Arts; C. P. Shearn, Shriener Institute. Other students leaving the Houston Junior College are Irving Weinstein, University of Oklahoma at Norman, and Josephine Lorenz, University of Louisiana at Baton Rouge. With the leaving of these students the Junior College ex- students are further distributed among the various colleges of the country. Already, Junior College ex's have made names for themselves at many colleges and it is to be hoped that these students will uphold the name of H. J. C. SOPHOMORE CLASS BALL MARCH 11 The sophomore ball will be held Friday night, March 11, at the Houston club, according to plans formulated by the sophomore class at a recent meeting. Tentative plans call for a semi-formal dance. The ballroom will be appropriately decorated by a committee to be appointed by President Bertrand at an early date. Bids will cost $1.50 and will be placed on sale as soon as possible. Representatives of the class will be in the office to accept payments for bids and will give receipts which will entitle the bearer to a bid when they are printed. Proceeds from this dance will be used to defray the expenses of the sophomore class for the remainder of the current school year. Lee's Owls, popular university orchestra, will furnish music for the occasion. Dance hours will be from 10 until 2 o'clock. And then there was the sap soph who took three extra subjects so he would have more chance of passing one. "For goodness' sake, John, stop playing that saxophone and let's do something. I've stayed at home so many nights that I am about to go crazy." "Why sure, Honey, I'll leave the old sax alone if it bothers you. But why go out? We've been out one night this week and we'll be going out Friday, maybe. Anyway, it's so darned much trouble to "dress, go out somewhere and dance and have to come home tired and sleepy with a hard day's work staring you in the face for tomorrow." "Oh, I thought it would be so different when I first married you. You said you did not want me to grow old and ugly and suppressed looking like so many married women we knew. And look what you've done to me. "I'm only twenty-four and I look like I'm at least thirty-five. I never go out. You are out all day and see your friends and are too tired to go anywhere at night. But how about me? I stay in and work and work all day long and then stay in at night, too. I never get to see any of my friends." "Oh, all right, Hon; next week we'll start going out at least twice a week. We'll go somewhere and dance one night and call on some of your friends- the other night." "But, John, do you realize that you've been saying that every night for nearly two years. I don't think I could stand it for another two." "Oh, but I really mean it this time. You just wait and see. . . . Now, how does this thing go . . . ta-ta-tata-ta- tum-ta-ta ..." Within t a year of the time when her divorse became final, Mary, whose' name was once again Mary Marshall, had ceased to regret her haste in divorcing John Browning. Immediately after the suit was over she had left San Felipe and had gone to Cedar Springs, a nearby and much larger city, where she was certain of finding more of that social life which she craved and had failed to find in San Felipe. At first things had been hard She had not asked for any Simony, but John had insisted upon helping hei until she could get on her feet She obtained and gave up n rapid s-icces- sion jobs in an insurance office, a department store, a real estate company and an exclusive hat shop. She had been almost ready to give up and was about to write to John and ask him to take her back when she got a job with an interior decorator. At last she felt that she had found herself. She made more money than she knew how to spend. She indulged in (Continued on Page 3) DEBATERS CHOSEN TO REPRESENT INSTITUTION Smith and Brinkley To Alternate On Debate Team With the season for debate and oratory not far off, Professor Harvey W. Harris announces that he has already chosen the teams which will represent the Houston Junior college in debates scheduled with other schools. In the elimination series held recently in the public speaking rooms. Gordon Jones won the unanimous decision of the judges as first debater. Gordon is a sophomore in the Junior college, and it is hoped that he will make unequaled progress for his dear old alma mater. An unusual occurrence came about when the second place on the debate team was chosen. Milford "Windy" Smith and Jimmy Brinkley came out neck and neck in the opinion of the judges, so Coach Harris decided that they will alternate in the debates. Addison Woestmeyer, whose picture appears elsewhere in this paper, was chosen as Junior college orator. On the feminine side of the debate team, Misses Evelyn Bashara and Zelma Lee Bond were given places, while Evelyn also won out as girl Mr. Dave Fraser, of the Sam Houston Senior High school faculty served as one of the judges and complimented Professor Harris upon the splendid talent shown by the speakers. As a matter of practice, the Junior college has scheduled a number of meets with the San Jacinto High school. These practices are held in room 321, and serve as warm-ups for both teams. Information received by Mr. Harris late Tuesday night made it plain that the oratory contest for the district will be held in San Antonio April 1. Evelyn Bashara and Addison Woestmeyer will make the trip from the Junior college. The district debate finals will be held at Temple Junior college on April 22. Gordon Jones, Milford Smith, Jimmy Brinkley, Evelyn Bashara, and Zelma Lee Bond will make that trip. The one-act play finals will be held at the Hillsboro Junior college on March 11. The Houston Junior college has been ordered directly to the OFFICERS RE - ELECTED BY THE SPEAKER'S CLUB Officers for the new term elected by the Speaker's Club on Thursday, February 11, are as follows: president, Harold Cohn; vice-president, Evelyn Cochran; secretary, and reporter Florence Kendrick; sergeant - at - arms, Donald Aitken. Sponsored by Harvey W. Harris, the club will meet every other Thursday at 5:30. The program for the following meeting has been planned by Ben Fly, Evelyn Hurvitz, and Florence Kendrick. Flowers Those flowers that we gave to our beauties in assembly last Wednesday night were given to us by the Avenue Floral company, 1920 McKinney They were very gracious in doing this, and we of The Cougar staff wish to let you know it. The Avenue Floral company boasts of being the South's largest florists, and well deserves that honor. Surely they grew so large by being exceedingly accommodating. Flowers brighten up any occasion, so use more of them. . . . More Avenue Floral flowers.
