Transcript Letters to the Editor . . . HAT A TURNOUT TO THE EDITOR: Dear Students: On behalf of your football team, we would like to thank you for the outstanding early season support that we have received. We can't tell you how great it was to see Robert Mayes with the Cougar band members, our cheerleaders, and other students and boosters at Hobby Airport last Saturday night upon returning from our victory over Missouri. We have a football team that students, faculty, and staff will enjoy watching and be very proud to call their own. With your continued support, we have every reason to believe that we will be contending for that Southwest Conference Championship. Our next game will be in Waco on October 1 when we open the SWC season. Your presence at that game could make the difference in a win 3r loss. We need you there. *udy Davalos )irector of Athletics Jack Pardee lead Football Coach !1 BY ONE VOTE TO THE EDITOR: Will it happen again? Will le 6-2 Houston Cougars take the field to give it all in front of about 9,000 fans? Will the country see how little our student body cares about the great team we have here? Unfortunately, the answer is probably . . . YES. Being a member of the University of Houston Cou-^ gar Marching Band has been a great opportunity for me. I tave been in the band since 986, so I have seen my share of failures with the team. I am so glad we are doing well and showing the Southwest Conference, and the nation, that we have a good thing here at UH. Mike Pede, the Cougar mascot, wrote a commentary in the Nov. 9 issue ("Cougar football team in need of fan support,"} asking you to support the team on Saturday. It is great that he wrote that commentary, but it is a disgrace to our football team that he should have to write one in the first place! These guys are out there every day working hard and getting the job done. What will it take to get those Cougar fans into the Astrodome? The band is out there every week supporting the team and firing up the crowd. Now, all we need is a crowd to fire up! The football team is facing a top-10 team Saturday against Wyoming. We are ranked number 20 by CNN and missed number 20 in AP would like to thank the students of the University of Houston. The delegates had a great time, and our university received many compliments. The delegates came in contact with many students and residents on our campus while using the UC, taking guided tours by our ambassadors and eating in the residence halls dining rooms. Everyone I spoke to during the conference was not only impressed with our campus and its beauty but by the students as well. Even those The best reflections of our views of the world is the letters we write, the complaints we file, and the praise we level. Read here how some felt. Read here how some reacted. Read here what concerned many, but few wrote about. . . W.A.M. by one vote! We are going to a post-season bowl game. Everyone knows how good our team is . . . except our students. If you have not been to a game all year, now is the time. If you have been going to games, bring someone else along. We are on the verge of something incredible. Get out there and give some support to a team that has earned it and deserves it. Mike Smith Soph., Undeclared A POSITIVE IMAGE TO THE EDITOR: Recently our school played host to the 1988 SWACURH (Southwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls) Conference, where 470 student leaders from colleges in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma "took over" the University Center. As the conference executive director of programming, I from schools such as Texas A&M were impressed and found it difficult to see the "Cougar High" image that so many others so blindly find in us. We all show a sense of pride in our university, and it is up to the students to promote a positive image and one of a serious university striving for higher academic standards. This is what these 470 delegates saw from our hosting this conference. I applaud the University of Houston students and the residence hall in particular for promoting a positive image of our school to these other universities that weekend and for putting up with all the noise and chalked sidewalks. Scott G. Gibson Soph., Undeclared BLAME THE BUDGET TO THE EDITOR: I am writing in response to Ms. Rhonda Boehm's letter of Nov. 15, 1988. She recounts how she was "turned away" by the Counseling and Testing Service because of the nature of her difficulty. She is terribly misinformed regarding several aspects of the function of CTS as a mental health service agency. First, due to the budgetary constraints imposed upon CTS by the powers that be, CTS staffing reductions were necessary measures to provide the best possible service with the money that had been allocated. Second, CTS sees anyone (faculty, staff, students) at least once and if they are unable to maintain them from the caseload at the agency (CTS) makes every reasonable, and usually outstanding, effort at referring them to an appropriate mental health service agency in the community. Third, all of the counselors on staff at CTS work very hard for a relatively small amount of income. This fact impresses upon people the point that the staff truly cares about the people they serve and the quality of services which we render. In conclusion, it was not the conscience which got to them, Ms. Boehm, but rather the dramatic incident which startled the entire campus community (the recent suicide of a UH student). CTS DOES NOT TURN AWAY ANY SUICIDAL PERSON WHO SEEKS ASSISTANCE. I seriously hope that your prior negative experience with CTS is understood now in a more enlightened perspective. Furthermore, I sincerely hope that should you feel the need for future counseling, you will remember the contents of this letter and bear in mind that the counselors at CTS epitomize professionalism, integrity, and care. Thank you very much. Jerry L. Long Jr. MA Grad., Clinical Psyc. m 276 ■ Issues
