Transcript THE COUGAR Published by the Journalism Students of the Houston Junior College HOUSTON, TEXAS, OCTOBER 23, 1929 BAYLOR CUBS HAND ■COUGARS INITIAL SETBACK OF SEASON Cougars Hold Baylor Bears for Three Quarters; Parker's Scoring Spells Defeat Fighting an uphill battle that looked scoreless until the last five minutes of play, the Houston Junior College Cougars invaded the football •center of Texas and received their first defeat this season. After holding off the charging ef- . forts of Coach Washam's crew for more than 45 minutes the Cougar line began to falter and consequently met defeat at the hands of Messrs. Parker, Stringer, and Clem. With Parker and Stringer carrying the pigskin and Clem opening up the line the Cubs ■ had a formidable trio that should see ■ plenty of service under Coach Jennings later on. "Country" Brown for the Cougars, , played bang up ball as did Porter, but the combined efforts of these two boys failed to gain the necessary yardage for first downs. It looked as though the game would be a scoreless one until the Cougars lost the ball on their own 40-yard line. On the first down a long ""eave from * Parker to Stringer brought the ball to the Cougar's fifteen yard line. The ball was carried out on the [next, • play without any gain to the Cubs, j After bringing the ball out in front j of the goal Parker placed a fine boot j thru the bars for the first score of! 'the game. Fighting with a bulldog attitude the, ftongan BtuTmornly checked the ad-j yance of the Cubs on their own 30 yar line and then carried the ball deep' into the enemy's territory where the] ball was lost when the Cubs forward i ' *vall stiffened. A series of passes brought the ball once again into th<» I Cougars back yard and a beautiful run off-tackle by Parker netted the Cubs their first touchdown, making " the score 10-0. On the Cougar defense Morris and 'Christenson shone throughout the »game. On many occasions Morris broke thru and stopped the play behind the line, while Christenson was one of the main cogs in the secondary defense. Warden of the Cougars (Continued on Page 3) RICE OFFICIAL STATES OUTLOOK FOR ASPIRANTS FROM JUNIOR COLLEGE According to Mr. McCann, registrar of Rice Institute, there are two classes of students who attend Eice. These are the very good and the very poor. The very good come to take some special subject which interests them; the very poor, to get a fresh start. Of course, Rice has the reputation of taking only those who are students. Sometimes, however, others are taken and. once there, make fairly good records. "The number of transfers is governed by the number of students who fail. For instance, if all the students who come to Rice from the Houston Junior College pass, Rice will be able to accept more next year. But," continued Mr. McCann, "if there are more failures, Rice will have to cut down on the number accepted." Rice will credit all subjects, from H. J. C, except Journalism, Public Speaking, and Education. Journalism and Public Spsaking are not offered at Rice. Education is offered, but Rice uses different books and his different prerequisite courses. Some students now attending Riee from Houston Junior College are: Janeva Jacobs, Eva Newman, Adine Otto, Wallace Banks, George McCarthy, Lester Vann, and Mary Louise Tonisen.

A drive for Student Association memberships was anticipated for the near future. POWERS ARE PETITIONED TO PERMIT PARTIES IN THE GYM EACH MONTH A petition has been submitted to Mr. Dupre for approval asking that the students of the Houston Junior College be allowed to give one dance a month in the gym. Upon receiving i.the signature of Mr. Dupre and the social committee of the school, the petition will be sent to the Board of Education for final approval. a Because of the success of the dances held last year and the one this year in the> gym, a group of sophomores were appointed by Mr. Harris to act as temporary dance committee to compose a petition asking) for these monthly dances. - The letter follows: Mr. N. K. Dupre, Assistant Dean, Houston Junior College, Houston, Texas. Dear Sir: „ We, the temporary dance committee, have been appointed to act for the student body concerning Houston Junior College dances in the future and " we therefore bring our plans to you. We are asking to be given the right to have one Junior College dance a month. We think that this dance 'should be held in the school gymnasium and that the orchestra be selected by the permanent dance com- . mittee from time to time. The expense of these dances will be carried by those attending them. There shall be a tax on each couple, of suf- (Continued on Page 3) THE LAW FOR FRESHMEN. . Will wear "Slime Caps" while attending school or school activities. 2. Will not smoke on the campus. 3. Will not practice loitering in front of building. 4. Shall respect upper classmen, as is customary in larger colleges. 5. Ail freshmen (boys and girls) must address upper classmen as Mr. or Miss while in school or at school functions. The Sophomore class reserves the right to alter these rules at any time. Emi! Peterson Gets Scholarship Offered by American Business Club The first scholarshin offered by the American Business Club to the most oustandlng student of the Houston Junior College was awarded Thursday, Oct. 10, to Emil Peterson, sophomore. Mr. Peterson was selected recipient of the scholarship by mi bers of the Junior College faculty cause of his high standing in both studies and student activities. Though carrying the full freshmen course last year, Mr. Peterson did full time work during the day and completed his school work with high grades, besides being active in school affrias. Mr. Peterson was well-known and popular among both students and faculty last year. Prior to that time he attended Sam Houston High School, being graduated from there in 1928. Members of the American Business Club expect to establish a permanent scholarship in the amount of $200, which will be awarded each year to the sophomore who has made the best record in his freshman year, according to Mr. Soule. This scholarship is to be in the form of a gift, not a loan, to deserving students who are work ing, or partly working, their way through Junior College. Donees are to be selected by the faculty on a basis of character, scholarship and participation in college activities. Students laid aside their books and teachers their lecture notes Friday night, October 4, to join in the festivities of thti'first Junior College dance this year, which took place in the school gymnasium. The revelry continued from nine o'clock 'til midnight. The purpose of this social function, sponsored by the faculty and Sophomores, was of a two-fold nature. Aside from offering a much needed relaxation from studies, it presented a splendid opportunity for the students to become better acquainted with each other as well as with the instructors. The usual formality of introductions was practically eliminated by pinning the student's full name in a prominent place on his or her wearing apparel. This novel idea proved benefactory to the boys, in that they could glance at a girl's name-plate and readily call her by name, whether they had forgotten it or had ever known it. The Collegians, playing in their usual hot style, made it impossible for the teachers to stand and look After the enthusiasm which was expressed by the student body, it is hoped that the faculty will not hesitate in encouraging such affairs as this, in the future. SOPHS ELECT OFFICERS Garrison Named President; Ruth Kidd Fills Vice-Presidential Chair The first meeting of the Sophomore Class was held on Monday night, October 14, with Mr. Dupree as temporary chairman. The primary purpose of this meeting was to elect the class officers. Smith Garrison and John Aleo were nominated for s president. Garrison won, and School Prexy Reviews Growth of Institution; ts Gratified At Improvement Dr. K. E. Oberholtzer, superintendent of the Houston Independent School District, and president of the Houston Junior College, made an address to the faculty members and students of the Junior College at 7:30 p. m. Wednesday, October 2. "I can remember the first Junior College group three years ago," said Dr. Oberholtzer. "The students could fill the seats of the first five rows. The group this year is different. It has improved in both size and quality. The Junior College is making rapid progress, both inwardly and outwardly, every day. We are paying the entire faculty out of the funds collected from the students and from no administration costs. "All tho money spent for Junior College is spent for good teachers. The Board of Education gives us the building and the lights. We have as much a devoted faculty as the average faculty of any college, if not more so. "We could eliminate the building, the text books, and the laboratories and still have a college. Teachers and students are the essential things of a college.

Everyone seemed pleased with the result of the elections and the Sophomores are looking forward to a great year. NOTICE Freshmen boys will be able to obtain slime caps easily next week. Announcement will be made by Smith Garrison upon the arrival of the caps. HAVE YOU PAID YOUR BLANKE1 TAX? "Pay Your Blanket Tax" was the discussion held in the assembly hall Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. Professor Harris informed the students of the advantages they would reeeive by paying their blanket tax. "For the small fee of five dollars, you are entitled to eighteen dollars worth of games and all the issues of the 'Cougar' the Junior College paper. Without this blanket tax, you will not be able to receive the paper. I know how hard it is for some of you students who are working your way through school to raise this five dollars, but students, I too. worked my way through school but I managed to pay my activity fee and was repaid a hundredfold. I would not part with that spirit that was imparted to me through attending the games for any amount of money. Each student that pays his blanket tax will prove that he is interested in the activities of the college as well as proving hat he is loyal to It. Be a part of your school, take pride In what it does. Be a vital part of everything connected with school. 1 hate to see a person slowly die and then have to sit around for the next twenty years waiting for the undertaker. Everything that is dead is buried, so look alive." Coach Smith urged all the students to attend all the games played by the team. "Our team is fighting for you, Football Schedule October 26—Junior College vs. Sam Houston Reserves, Houston. November 2—Junior College vs. Victoria Junior College, Victoria. November 8—Junior College vs. Texas Freshmen, Austin. November 16—Junior College vs. Hillshoro Junior College, Houston. November 23—Junior Colleve vs. Blinn Memorial. Houston. and for the school, but what are you doing? Yon have no right to call this 'yours' unless you show some interest in it by attending the games and rooting for it. These boys go out and fight until they are exhausted. They are putting Junior College on the map, they are fighting for you. Now show your spirit and come out and root for them. Friday we leave to play the Baylor Cubs at Waco. We hope to bring back another victory for Junior College." Roy Hofheinz, yell leader, then lead the students in a few yells for the team before N, K. Dupree dismissed the Sophs to meet in Room US where they held a private meeting. Probably they discussed what they would do to the Freshmen. But when the day of reckoning comes, the Freshmen will certainly get some of their starch taken out by the Sophs. Robert McCullough, president of the Student's Council, gave a one minute talk on "Citizenship," mentioning the blanket tax twice throughout the ' (Continued on Page 3) (Continued on Page 3) LETTERS IN FOUR MAJOR SPORTS EVIDENCE VALUE OF COLLEGE GRID COACH "Rah! Rah! Rah! Coach!" How many times have you joined in the yell when the cheer leader said, "Come on, gang, let's give nine for coach." Anyone could point out the coach, but few could give any information about his, except as to appearance. Cecil Bernard Smith, now serving his second year as Junior College coach, is a graduate of the University of Texas, where he gained quite a reputation as a versatile athlete. (Friends: confided that he was also quite a sheik.) Prior to entering the University, Coach Smith attended a Junior College for three years. As a student in Junior College, the popular mentor lettered in four major sports. A glance through the list of instructors for Junior College shows the name of C. B. Smith, professor for classes in law. Perhaps this explains the fact that an unusually laj-ge number of misses are taking the course this term. A great resemblance in at least one respect Is noted between Coach Smith and Calvin Coolidge. Both are reticent in regard to themselves. However, we are grateful that Smith "Does Choose to Run" athletics at Junior College, and is always willing to talk about the team. "I know the boys join me In thanking the student body for their splendid support in our recent games, and we are going to show our appreciation by- putting the best we have in the games," commented Coach Smith.
