Transcript ROBERT FORSHAW, Fall Editor. On March 22, at 1:37 a.m., a fire broke out in the University's printing plant and consumed the building and much of the equipment. Without the printing plant facilities, the Cougar staff was faced with the possibility of missing an issue, but the Houston Chronicle offered to print the first issue following the fire. The University House of Representatives passed a resolution commending Editor Cathy Young for publishing the paper under such adverse conditions. The Cougar, under the fall editorship of Robert Forshaw, won an All-American rating, and a Medalist award from Columbia University. Both awards are the highest given by the two top rating services. The reporting staff of the Cougar includes Ken Carr, Judy Lewis, Birtie Maughmer, Bill Holt, Mel Anderson, Roxie Chamberlain, Sonny Ashley, Tom Powell, Doug Uzzell, Jim Runnels, John Williams, Meredith Trube, Don Alderman, Stan Slaten, Eddie Black, Millie Duelberg, Tony Haber, Ruth Long, Beverly Dent, Gordon Fales, and Stuart Hayes. They Cover Campus News Day and Night A college newspaper is the eyes and ears of the campus. Nowhere else can a student get full coverage of all the activities that are going on around him. The reason for this is because much of the news that would interest a student would not be of interest to the general public. Therefore, it is not used in daily papers. The duty of the editor and the staff of the Cougar is to give students of the University this information. During 1959-60, more pictures, through the efforts of members of Kappa Alpha Mu, national photojournalism fraternity, allowed the campus population to see itself through the eyes of the camera. The paper attempted to stimulate student interest through the "Can You Identify?" picture contest. CATHY YOUNG, Spring Editor. 222
