Transcript THE COUGAR Introducing— Our Faculty .—.;. I 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 interesting. 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 spark plug of many of our successful school activities. 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. lege should enjoy and which at present we do not. 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." DEFINITION OF "IT"— (Continued from page three) The spirit that helps when another's down, That knows how to scatter the blackest frown, That loves hi3 "College" and loves his town That's pep. To say "I Will," for you know you can To look for the best in every man To meet each thundering, knock- cut blow Come back with a smile because you know You have the best in the whole darn show And that's pep."

Compliments of State National Bank Wallis Drug Store Hadley 0220 MR. DUPRE LAUDS— (Continued from page three) larger number of teachers than usual and this adds a serious tone to school life. "The discipline for the entire year has been exceedingly good and I attribute this to the fact that we have a high class group of students." Native Texan. Mr. Dupre is a native Texan and comes from a family of teachers. He received the degree of Bachelor Arts from Southwestern University in 1922 and a Master of Arts degree from Texas State University in the summer of 1923. Mr. Dupre has o pleted practically the two years of course work towards the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Administrative Education. He is specializing in junior college administration for his Ph. D. degree. Mr. Dupre has had nine years experience in administrative teaching in Texas, three of which were in San Antonio public schools and junior college, which he helped to organize in 1925. In this college he was Dean of studends during the years '25, '26. Last year Mr. Dupre organized and directed the Brownsville junior college, securing the recognition of both of the affiliating bodies. War Air Pilot. During the World War he was in service for 17 months during which time he received a commission as an air pilot. Mr. Dupre instructed in the advanced flying school at Brooks Field, San Antonio. In addition to his numerous technical activities he has done valuable work for A. and M. College and the Houston Chamber of Commerce in directing agricultural clubs. Mr. Dupre helped to organize and put over the first All-State Junior College Conference, held by the University of Texas, at Austin. This conference was sponsored by the Junior College association of the University of Texas summer school. In that body Mr. Dupre has served one year as vice-president and at present is serving as president. Mr. Dupre was selected for the position of assistant dean of the Houston Junior College and recommended to the Board of Education by Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer, president of the Junior College. Gold-diggers that were once "Forty- niners" are now perfect "Thirty- sixes." Compliments of j Dr. J. Allen Kyle EVERYTHING FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY AT W. C. MUNN COMPANY HOW TO LIVE COMFORTABLY ON $100,000 a Year Naturally, you must make every effort to limit yourself to the bare necessities of life. If you are accustomed to wearing three and four suits and hats every day, try cutting this down to two and then gradually down to one. Many people entertain the foolish notion that they must have five or six automobiles to get about properly. That there isn't a lick of sense to this was proven by the fact that just the other day a man was seen on skiis and seemed to be getting along nicely. Roller skates or tricycle would serve just as well and the money that could be saved on the upkeep alone is worth considering. On the other hand, quite a little spare change can be picked up by indulging in some side line in your leisure time. Driving a taxi, trimming windows, or ushering in.a show offer means by which you can meet expenses and maintain your decency and at the same time the work is pleasant. Better, yet, learn to play the saxophone or trap drums. Others have done it. So can you. Can you hum a tune? Write for free booklet. Tells how. Summing the whole thing up, the solution is quite simple. By avoiding roast pork, intoxicated motorists and falling buildings, you should be able to live quite comfortably on $100,000 a year. Compliments of JOHNNIE WALKER Filling Station 2219 Louisiana NEW BUILDING— (Continued from page three) though the hours for attending classes are different. "The sharing of the athletic field is a great problem and one which we can solve only by having a new location for the Junior College. The present location, at San Jacinto high school offers no locker space for college students.
