BASKETBALL SQUAD OF HOUSTON JUNIOR COLLEGE SWEATERS AWARDED TO COUGAR GRIDMEN AT STUDENT MEET The fascinating syncopation of mod' ern jazz from the enchanting fingers of Ellen Cleveland flooded into the halls outside of the auditorium seemed to be a magnet to draw the students as they drifted in, numbered In their characteristic singles, doubles, and clusters. Everyone seemed to be very pepped up about something. Perhaps that too was the effect of the music. Mr. Dupre called the meeting to order, and, after giving a short friendly little lecture for the benefit of those who wait too late to begin studying and those who congregate in the hall downstairs in front of the entrance and through their bouyant garrulity and that of their friends, whom they meet at the entrance, shatter the golden silence of the library, much to the annoyance of the librarian and the few students caged therein, turned over the meeting to "Pete" Garrison, president of the Sophomore class. (Continued on page 2) THESPIANS TO SING COURT PROCEEDINGS 'Trial By Jury" Is Slated for March 12th Trial by Jury," a musical comedy by Arthur Sullivan, will be presented in assembly on the evening of March 12, by Junior College students. The production, a satire on legal procedure, will be entirely in song, and is said to be fu 1 of laughs from beginning to end. The cast, consisting of seven leads and a chorus, will be made up from the student body, and those interested in taking part should leave their names with Mrs. Bender at onc>j. This comedy was presented at the University of Texas last summer and was enthusiastically received there, according to Mrs. Alpha Adams. Mrs. Adams played a leading part In the production at the University and will have the same part here. Library's Place In College Stressed By Prof BY MRS. H. H. SHEARER Dana sajs "The library is the heart of the school." If our library is to be the heart of Junior College, it must function accordingly. It is our desire to make the library as useful as possible to both student and instructor. In order that it may reach the highest degree of efficiency the student shou'd know something about how to use It. In the first place the library should be quiet. No conversations nor group study should be he-Id there. When it ia necessary to speak for a moment, the voice 3houId be lowered so as not to disturb. Students should be thoughtful also In the halls near the library not to (Continued on page 4) ASSEMBLY FEATURES VERY GOOD PROGRAM Rev. Knowles Gives Interesting Talk to Students Girls usually play the jazz melodies to which the peppy students of Junior College march into the auditorium, but this time everyone was surprised. A talented young man, who happens to be called H. D. Mathews, presided at the piano and the result was quite entertaining. Mr. Dupre gave a brief talk announced that we were going have a very interesting program. Now, we are used to interesting programs at the Wednesday Assembly, but. nevertheless, this prologue stlnn.ilated expectations that were certainly fulfilled. Mrs. Bender told us of another treat in store for us. A musical comedy is to be given by the students of the (Continued on page 3) INSPECTION MADE OF JUNIOR COLLEGE BY TRINITY U. DEAN Ass'n. of Texas College Member Comments Favorably on H.J.C's. Standard During the past week Dean E. P. Childs, of Trinity University and member of the Standardizing committee of The Association of Texas Colleges, spent two days making the bi-annual Association inspection. Every two years one of this committee makes inspections of this and other members of the Association determine their rating with the Association. The Junior College has, ever since s beginning, been rated in the first class group. Dean Childs inspected the library, science laboratories, office records, plan of registration, standard of admissions, and enrollment in the fresh- ian and sophomore classes. He also isited the classes to gain first hand information of the type of faculty employed. The inspector was unable to make a formal siatement concerning the inspection but he did say in conversation to members of the faculty that the college was far above requirements in every respect. He especially commended "the efficient organization as a whole," the splendid system of records and record keeping, and "the splendid faculty." "I know of no college or university In the state that can boast of as large a percentage of faculty members having Master of Arts degrees. They are especially strong as teachers aa well," said Dean Childs. Assistant Dean Dupre of the college says, "Judging from Mr. Childs' comments I am sure Junior College will keep its first class rating and the students from here will continue to be classed with the freshman and sophomore students of Texas University and other four-year institutions." A Political Pot Boils Over "We want the Iron Man! Give us Colossus!" screamed the inmates of a very young college; in fact it was a Junior College. From a fly's eye view it looked like a South American revolution in July or a Communist uprising in Russia, where whiskers sell by the bale. It was something worse than either of these, it was an election of officers for the Society for the Prevention of B. O. at said college. J. Tartar Sauce flung himself un mercifully upon the audience, "For the seventeenth time this year I nominate Colossus, the Iron Man for Presidency." -They yelled; they stomped; they screamed—the house shook like a bundle of alfalfa in a Kansas cyclone. Six Boliaths, Behemoths, Box-cars or what you will hoisted the nominee, y-clept the Iron Man, to their shoulders and sprinted him around the assembly. After the tumult died in that quaint old quaking hall, the Iron Man was a little rusty; about as worn out as the word complex. Nominations proceeded, but with less gusto. At length, three people were quietly nominated, thus making four asiprins for the president— enough to put Senator Borax to sleep in a tariff fight. Then some Bloke jumped up and opened the artillery from the rear. He screamed something about Tom-Tom tomorrow night. If you can judge artillery by its sound, his was plenty beavy. His blast took the paint right off the furniture. After this eruption was quieted, the mouth-struggling began. The first spasm was J. Tartar Sauce. "I jus' want to say a few words for by old friend, the Iron Man. He's a worldwide character. Worked with the Gold Dust Twins and sponsored Free Silver; member of the House of David Colony; rooms with Big Ben and endorses Brown's Mule; belleves in handling American Maid as well as Dixie Maid; is champion 100 ft. sprinter and is afflicted with a Chicago Gang! Having recited Colossus' greatest achievements, he retired in tavor of the next Mouth Organ one H. Twig, and a crooked one at that. One of these intellectual birds, don't you know! As he arose he was conscious of something pulling him back. "Your wife's jerking at your coat- tail," a lookeron seated nearby said. "Oh, don't mind her, she's Just a kid," he answered. After making the breakaway, the Limb organized and began to tell the degenerates about the integrity of the Iron Man. "My candidate promises to purge the miasma of all deleterious and vitriolic odors so common among us at the nonce." (Oh, he's erudite, he is, he is!) "His veracity and probity are un- malleable. His psychical material cannot he inoculated." Heavy artillery reopens In the rear, "Don't forget the Tom Tom!" Speager continues. "I could labor in disqulesition Interminably concerning his virility, cognizance and efficacy, showing that his accomplishments are not ephemeral but eternal. With all deferance to his opponents, etc., etc. Hours and hours of It are omitted because the speaker himself doesn't remember what he said. H.: went higher and higher, uttering jawbreaker after jawbreaker, until finally he hit an air-pocket, got all twisted up and went into a tail spin. Now Tom-Tom was like an undeveloped film, negative. He hadn't been in favor of anything anybody had said since the advent of Volstead. He had to tie a string around his finger to keep from arguing with the radio. Therefore, since he disagreed with the (Continued on page 3) Reception Planned for Newcomers at Jr. College The old students of the college will entertain the newcomers to the campus Friday night, March 7, In the gymnasium, with a reception. A very interesting program is being arranged and everyone is urged to be there. The details as to financial arrangements, etc., will be announced laler. KEEN INTEREST IS EVIDENCED IN AGE OLD ART OF DEBATE An active schedule of debates is being arranged for the near future by Mr. Harvey W. Harris, debate coach of the Houston Junior College. The recent banquet that was held for the Paris Junior College debaters was a success in every way, and it is hoped Paris will continue to meet the Houston Junior College in debate in the future. The Sam Houston State Teacher's College at Huntsville has been invited to meet the Houston Junior College, which will be represented by Roy Hofheinz and J. W. Newton, in debate In the Junior College auditorium within the next few days. They are expected to accept. On the seventh of March the Houston Junior College Girls Debating Team, composed of the Misses Kidd, Wheeler, Siely and others will journey to Jacksonville to meet the Jacksonville Junior College Girls Debating Team, and on the twenty-fourth of the same month the Houston Junior College will send a debating team to Beaumont to meet the South Parks Junior (Continued on page 2)
