The position of honor goes to H. W
South, our grand old registrar. He is
the amiable fellow that you first encountered upon enrolling in the Junior college. Mr. South in reality rival* the great Major Hoople in travels
and experiences. Many of his ex.
periences were in Texas in the pioneer
days and are equally as educational as
Mr. South enjoys a chat with any
student. If you get tired of English
go to see him—he speaks German,
Spanish and French more fluently
than a freshman speaks English.
Then there is Mr. Porter, mathematics instructor, another qualified
for the position of honor. Mr. Porter,
bashful and smiling, is rather reticent
even though he has spent a number of years at A. and M. College.
However, once you coax him into conversation you are pleasingly surprised at his brevity in wit, and thorough
knowledge of many subjects.
Some reporter found that Coach
John R. Bender was an M.A., M.S.
and L.L.M, but that wasn't sufficient
to further interest those that already
know him as an athlete and coach.
Coach Bender is a witty speaker and
has that "get up, speak up, shut up"
style that pleases all audiences.
The fellows are all fond of the
coach and in him have an admirable
example of an athlete, gentleman,
sport, prof., ladies' man and what not.
Who is that walking down the
corridor carrying some sort of a contraption ? Why that's Samuel Biskin,
hard working professor, teaching two
sciences, chemistry and physics. Professor Biskin is the busiest man in
the state and yet remains the Beau
Brummel of the college—'Sno use
girls, he's married.
The charming little blonde coming
up the walk? No, that isn't a delegate
from Atlantic City. It is Miss Huberich, our English instructor, a graduate of the University of Texas, and

We have a most unusual gentleman on our faculty, Prof. Ander, M.S.
son of a preacher, a preacher himself,
and an authority on biology. In addition to his duties at the college, he
lectures over the radio, contributes
insect articles to the Houston Post-
Dispatch, and carries on the good
work of preaching a sermon on Sunday. Just another regular fellow of
the faculty of the Junior College.
An affable and a valuable organizer, a promoter and a dependable coworker is found in Prof. Harris, who
also knows his stuff on salesmanship. When the committees on
dance programs and ticket sales follow his advice, increased attendance
is noted at every affair.
All these deserve honorary positions,
as do many more, but for lack of
space, we will have to conclude the
introductions for this issue and continue them in our next.

To Make Survey.
"The School Board is making a survey of the conditions and needs of th<
Houston public schools and is plan-
ning an extensive building program.
In this program the board expects to
include the erection of a junior college building.
"We will have a new building," concluded Mr. Black.
E. J. Matthews, registrar of the
University of Texas and representative of the Texas Association of Colleges, declared that if affiliation
should be granted the Houston Junior
College, a question to be decided at
an early date by the association, that
affiliation would be void if, after two
years, the Houston Junior College is
not housed in a building of its own.
That would mean that the Junior
College would have to be re-examined
and passed upon again by the association if affiliation is re-obtained. The
Board of Education is doing every-
thng in ther power to avert such a
calamty and as Mr. Black expressed
himself, "There is an abundance of
hopes for a new building for the
Houston Junior College."

HOW TO LIVE COMFORTABLY ON

notion that they must have five or
six automobiles to get about properly.
That there isn't a lick of sense to this

Roller skates or tricycle would serve

be saved on the upkeep alone is worth
