So outstanding were the speeches made by the Houston orators that they received the unanimous votes of the three judges. One of the requirements of the contestants is that they write their own speeches. Miss Bashara wrote on "A Tribute- to Mothers," while Woestemey- er wrote on "World Peace." The judges for the occasion were the county judge of Bexar County, the president of Westmoreland College, and the president of the Women's Federation of Clubs. The speakers were accompanied to San Antonio by Mrs. Bashara. WINNERS IN ORATORICAL MEET Evelyne Bashara (left) and Addison Woestemeyer (right) compose the team that won first place in the District Oratorical meet held in San Antonio.

Miss Carraway had been aqua-planing behind the boat when she was sud- denly thrown into the water. Her companions turned the boat about so quickly in an effort to recover Miss Carraway that they were on top of her before they saw her. "I was very fortunate," she stated, "and received only a slight cut on the arm." She continued to ride the surfboard during the remainder of the afternoon. At the present itme Miss Carraway has fully recovered. '32 GRADS ELECT VICVOEBELTOBE CLASS PRESIDENT At a recent meeting, the 1932 graduating class elected Victor Voebel president. Mr. Miller was chosen to sponsor the class this year, having served in that capacity last year. Tentative plans for the class are now being made by the faculty, according to Mrs. Pearl Bender. Committees have been formed to select the rings and pins, and plans ate now under way for the activities. "Due to financial conditions, the usual highschool reception may not be given, but this report is not definitely settled," said Mrs. Bender. REAGAN GLEE CLUB ENTERTAINS STUDES Harmonizing such well-liked numbers as "Sweet Genevieve" and "Romany Trail," the Boys. Glee club of the Reagan High school entertained the students of Houston Junior College at the assembly period in the auditorium Wednesday, March 23. Russell Luckie announced the numbers as sung by the club and quartet. Members of the quartet were Henry Finch, first tenor; Tho. Hooker, second tenor; William (Buddy) Gray, baritone; and Therold Conway, bass. The program was as follows: Quartet: "Stars of the Summer Night," "Sweet Genevieve," and "Come to me in My Dreams." The Glee Club sang "Tackle it," "How Can I Leave Thee?" "Mule," and "Jonah." "I wish you'd turn that darned radio off, George, so I can do some work. You know I want to make a good impression on the first Chemistry examination tomorrow, and Chemistry formulas and jazz music just won't mix—that is, when they are mixed, they don't produce the desired result," Henry Miller found himself saying to his room-mate, and fellow freshman, George Howard. "Just what do you propose for me to do? It's too early to go to bed, too cold and wet to go out, and I am not in the mood to do any studying now. I'll wait until the night before the exam to study, as you have," George replied. "I do»'t care what you Jo. Play yourself a game of chess, or solitaire, or write a letter to that girl back home that you are always bragging about. Do anything you like, so long as you don't make any noise." "My dear boy, you must learn to concentrate. Why, when I was your age—" "Turn off the radio and that hot air system of yours. The radiator will keep the room warm, even if the temperature is down to five degrees, and due to go below zero before morning." "All right, I'll be quiet if you promise not to repeat any of your old Chemistry formulas aloud. If there's anything I dislike it's hearing anybody study aloud, and you know you always do that." "I study aloud because it is the best way I know of for me to learn, but I'll remain perfectly quiet if you will." At this juncture there was a loud knocking on the door. The boys looked at each other as if to say, "I wonder who would be calling on us on a night like this. All the students were supposed to be in their rooms half an hour ago." George opened the door, and was met by two large, dirty, mustached plumbers, who did not wait to be asked in, but shoved him aside, dropped their tools on the floor, and threw their untidy coats on the bed. Presently, the spokesman announced, "Sorry boys, but we've got to take the radiator out. You've got to pay rent on it. You've been here three weeks, and haven't paid any rent on it yet." Then to his partner he said, "Take it out, Jim. They haven't paid (Continued on Page 3) STUDENTS AID TICKET SALES FORLECTURES H. J. C. students sold $120.00 worth of tickets to the lectures given by Dr. Griggs during the past week. Of this amount, $18.50 will go to the Student Loan Fund of the college, according to figures released by Mrs. Bender, who had charge of the sales. The White side, working east of Main Street won the contest and, as a reward for their efforts, have been promised a holiday by Dean Dupree. Eugenia Stevenson sold more tickets than any other of the contestants; in fact, it was largely due to her efforts that the White team was able to claim the victory. Both sides worked hard on the campaign and, while the sales were not as large as had been anticipated, those who helped, deserve congratulations for their work. The members of the winning team are Rena Mai Butler, Florine Davis, Pat Lesher, Hulda Alexander, Nelda Smith, Eugenia Stevenson, Ruth Depperman, Bernice Branum, Fred Aebi, Milford Smith, Harold Renfro, Herbert Rosenthal, Mack Douglas, Addison Woestemeyer, Wilma Lindsey, Evelyne Bashara, George Adams LeFever, Ev- ] elyn Coeffy, and Gordon Jones. KEEN~TIME HAD BY CLUBS ON OUTING "And a good time was had by all" .... A laughing, excitement hunting crowd, consisting of the Pi Betas and T. A. T.s, left Houston in eight speed- defying autos Sunday afternoon and roared away to Camp Beaty in search of old man joy and pleasure. In spite of the swiping of eats along the way and the bull shooting contests, the convoy reached their destination in safety, where they grabbed the food, hopped a barb wire fence that circled the woods, and made their way into the depths of the forest. Then the orgy started. Led by Windy Smith and Wilma Lindsey, who together ate one- half the food, the club members stowed away 150 sandwiches, 4 cakes, jars of olives, etc. After the meal they wandered around with the boys killing snakes and the girls carrying them (the snakes) by their tails. After an hour of this, the syncopation urge was felt so the gang hopped a ferry and arrived at the clubhouse a little heavy in the paunch and quite bloodthirsty from the snake murders. Here the group broke up; some sleeping, a few playing tennis, others baseball, and a few moseying around looking things over. It was too hot to keep up the sport activities all day, so they stormed the dance floor and turned the program over to "Minnie the Moocher" and "Oh Mona." Then the couples started their ratting contests with Hamp Robinson, Leroy Mel- cher, Jean Wetherall, and Gladys Jacobs taking the honors. Hulda Alexander had a little trouble, Windy almost cried when he couldn't find the keys to his car and John stole someone's date. With these unimportant happenings the bunch broke up and went home to cram for the next dfiy's exams. The Cougar Collegians held their banquet honoring the basketball teams in the school cafeteria Saturday night, April 2, 1932. The room took on a festive atmosphere for the occasion, which added to the merriment of the crowd. The long tables were set for seventy- five guests with attractive menus and place cards emphasizing the basketball spirit. Blue and white crepe paper, tall blue tapers, and blue bonnets were used to carry out the color scheme. Sprigs of mistletoe hung from the lights, as a part of the decorations, but it is not recorded that anyone took advantage of the. opportunity presented. After a bountiful repast, Cy Shaw served as toastmaster and introduced the members of the teams, the faculty, and the officers of the club. The introductions were made in short verses such as the following: Such blinding speed has Avis Parks. The scorers get writers' cramps putting down marks. Immaculate in spats is Coach Archie French- He helps the subs warm the bench. Coach French arose and apologized for wearing spats, saying that he did not realize what a demoralizing effect it would have on tho team. His reference was to Bobby Branham, who was wearing pearl ear-bobs at the time. Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer, president of the college; Mr. F. M. Black, the dean; and Mr. N. K. Dupre, the assistant- dean, made brief talks congratulating the two teams on their splendid showing during the past season and expressing a desire to see the school sponsor more social activities similar to the banquet. Later, everyone descended to the gymnasium and danced to the enchanting tunes of Hub Mancias and his orchestra. SYMPATHIES EXTENDED The students and Faculty of Houston Junior college extend their sympathies to Miss Grace Schoelman on the recent death of her sister. DEBATE CLUB HOLDS IMPORTANT CONTEST At a meeting of the speakers' club on Thursday, March 31, it was decided to have the members of the club choose sides and debate whether or not women should be given equal rights with men. Helen Higgins brought up the subject in a talk she gave before the club. The club decided to debate the question at the next club meeting. (Continued on Page 3) H. J. C. Physics Studes Visit Electric Plant Approximately 75 students taking physics 124, visited the Deepwater plant of the Houston Lighting and Power Company, Tuesday morning, April 12.

Views of the Houston Ship Channel and surrounding industrial plants were had from this point of Those visiting the plant were shown the various parts by employees of the company who acted as guides.
