Transcript Chris-Cross By George Christian Chris-Cross Reviews Year's Activities Having perpetrated our vitrolic and disapproving colyum on a long-suffering student body for nearly a year in the Cougar, we have decided that we can get away with almost anything. So. we have been prevailed upon to do a piece for the Houstonian on the year's activities. We have Editor Harry Rogers' promise to run our picture and that is all we are concerned about. We care little whether you read this or not. While there is little doubt in our mind that our election as editor of The Cougar is the year's most important event, some quarters have intimated that the reappearance of "Joe College" in his little red beanie takes precedence. What absurd nonsense, we say. Frontiersmen-sponsored football trains carried Cougar fans- to out-of-town games for the first time. While we didn't attend both of these trips, we understand that the Frontiersmen made a lot of money selling cokes. What a spirit organization they are. Good mixers, too! An alumni of the Camp Hood infantry, we eyed with distaste the ROTC quartermaster cadets coloring the campus with their uniforms for the first time this year. We must, we guess, be tolerant though or Colonel Zwicker, the commandant, may have us lined up and shot. Chasing Sam Houston Bearkats proved to be a leading outdoor sport as Alpha Phi Omega's Homecoming bonfire grew. Interpid Chris-Cross commanded the Cougar staff contingent the night before it was burned in a battle, ostensibly against Bearkats, but actually against mosquitoes. We repulsed the Bearkats, but not the mosquitoes. A successful Homecoming, sunny for once, was climaxed by the Co-ed club's dance at the Rice Hotel. Varsity Varieties of 1949 has been described as a fast-moving, well knit show. We must agree though we have mental pictures of Director George Durbin crocheting the production together. Plans for a $9,000,000 building program in addition to the Ezekiel Cullen building, now under construction, are supposed to be complete in June of this year. Weary of spanning canyons to get to the JCT building where we have a class, we will be heartily glad to see the whole thing finished. We might now call this institution TU for temporary university (this gag by Foster Wick). Football players and coaches were honored at the Exes' annual gridiron dinner in January. While we have been called the most unsportsminded editor in history, that steak at the Houston Club was enough to lure even unathletic Chris-Cross. A few weeks later the Houston Chronicle somehow scooped the Cougar with the news that the University had pulled out of the Lone Star conference to help organize a new one. Announced later was next year s schedule which will include a game with William and Mary. A Cougar editorial filler stated the opinion that something must be wrong with William if he can't get anybody but Mary to play on his team. Frontier Fiesta got into full swing, to be trite, as Ole Olsen came to the campus to inaugurate the beard- growing contest. A new Ford is the chief target brush- faces are shooting at. The Press club will again publish the Fiesta Gazette for which we are a writer. There will, we understand, also be other activities at the Fiesta. Frontiersmen and Junior-Senior prom chairmen, at this writing, were bickering over which group was to have the first University dance at the Shamrock Hotel. We must, since we have now filled our alloted space, apologize to our regular reader for this lamentable relapse to the reportorial side of journalism and retire to our ivory tower, known as Chateau Chris-Cross, to resume our accustomed hurling of cynical darts. (The above comments do not necessarily express the views of the 1949 HOUSTONIAN—The Editor).
