The Junior college will select several candidates for the scholarship annually- They will be chosen with regard to scholastic standing, extra - curriculam work, personal traits and other important facts. Dr. Oberholtzer issued the following statement regarding the scholarships: "Such recognition of the Houston Junior college is , noteworthy in that the college is only four years old. I believe the school richly deserved this honor and I am proud to say that we accepted the honor." Dean F. M. Black described the as a fitting tribute to the high scholastic ranking of the Junior college wtih other such institutions in the country. "In my opinion, the awarding of the Chicago university scholarships to the Houston Junior college is a great tribute to its scholastic standing among other junior colleges in our nation," Dr. Black stated. Assistant Dean N. K. Dupre pointed out that the scholarships will encourage a high standard for the Junior college school of business administration. Cream Of The Crop!! 4# H. J. C. GIRLS IN WIN OVER RICE Undefeated, the H. J. C. girls basketball team won over Eice in a hard- fought battle last Friday night in the H. J- C. gymnasium. Playing a two-division game, Doris . McVicker, who has formerly played forward, was able to get the tip-off from Miss Ehlert of Eice and also put the ball in the basket. McVicker scored the most points, followed by Avis Parks. Louise Morgan, the most sensational player on the team, was put out of the game on account of personal fouls. However, she was allowed to play in the last quarter. One of Rice's players, who should have gone out on personal fouls, had to remain in the game because there was no one to take her place. Ehlert of Rice made most of the 19 points scored by Eice. Paul Gilder refereed the game. Line-up Rice— —H. J. C. HOUSTON CLUB WILL BE SCENE OF SLIME AFFAIR Plans are being formulated for the fourth annual mid-term reception for new students to be held February 5, according to an announcement by N. K. Dupre, assistant dean of the Junior college. The dance will be held at the Houston club in honor of the new students who enrolled in the Junior college at the beginning of the second semester. "Previous receptions have been such successes that it will be netesary to take steps to eliminate other than students of the Junior college to prevent the hall from being overcrowded," Mr. Dupre announced. Members of the faculty will welcome the new students to the Junior college and all old students will act as hos' to the incoming members of the student body.

MOST BEAUTIFUL CO-EDS CHOSEN IN BEAUTY RACE At last, the Cougar is able to announce the winners of its Beauty Contest. Nelda Smith won in the sophomore division, while Ruth Depperman won in the freshman division. For four months the Cougar had sponsored the contest, and up to last Wednesday, there were some eleven votes cast. Purely dissatisfied and disgusted with the enthusiasm shown by H. J. C. students, the Cougar groped its way bbndly in the dark, trying vainly to hit upon some new way to get student opinion. Suddenly, the individual ballot plan sprung up. It was decided to give the plan a trial, consequently, the ballots were printed before the Wednesday night assembly. As a result, some 614 votes were cast, and the opinion of almost every Junior college student was gotten. The votes were collected and counted by the president of the Students' Association and three faculty members Friday night. Nelda Smith had 520 votes, and Ruth Depperman had 550 votes. Hulda Alexander ran second to Nelda in the soph division, while Melbadel Wright came in behind Ruth, both being beaten by good majorities. The staff of the Cougar is finally pleased with the attitude shown by the student body, and is now looking for some new way to further enliven it As an explanation to some of its - readers who may think that the contest was decided mainly by the popularity of the contestants rather than beauty, the Cougar wishes to explain the word "beauty" to them. "Beauty" does not paritcularly pertain to outward appearance. Rather, it pertains to beauty of character, soul, and personality. Certainly, one who only has. a pretty face and a shapely body is not beautiful - All of the girls entered in the Cougar Beauty contest were beautiful, but Nelda and Ruth were chosen most beautiful. Every H. J. C. student was given votes. The Cougar congratulates you on your choice. SKINNY LEGS A Short Story by James L. Julian If you want the real story of Fred- inches die Bunn, All-Am erica football star for two seasons, you must go back to the year 1928. That was his freshman year at Siwash College and my tenth year as head football coach. I have read., in the papers many times where he was a natural born football player. That isn't so, he learned everything he knew and inherited none of it. The first time I saw him was at the beginning of the '28 season- One day while I was busy with a practice session he strolled up to me and says: "Coach, I want to learn to play football". "Then why don't you hire a tutor?" I snapped. "Oh", he blushed, "I want to play for Siwash." I told him he was big-hearted and walked off. Us coaches have gotta retain our independence and I thought it was cute to treat him that way for two reasons. First, he was a freshmi and second, he didn't look like a foot ball player. He tall and only weighed 165 pounds and had legs like a canary. He reminded me of a Zepplin mooring The next day the line coach spoke to me about him. He said the kid was a trackman and fast as a streak of lightning. He informed me the kid could step off a hundred yards in ten flat, and that he should be worth something on the football field. I told the line coach the track and gridiron were two different things and I didn't like him because of the way he approached me. And on top of that he was skinny and when he spoke his Adam's apple quavered- If there are anything I dislike its skinny legs and vibrating Adam's apple. Every time I see ; quavering Adam's apple I have an insatiable desire to squeeze it into ap plesauce. All during that year the freshmai coach gave the kid special instructions daily. But I never paid much attention to the human bean-pole until the next season when he came up for the varsity. With Bunn from the fresh- feet, four man squad came two of bsst blocking backs Siwash has ever produced. Graduation had hit Siwash hard the year before and we had only two veteran backfield men left from the previous season. So as a last resort, and as much as I disliked Freddie-the- Freshman Bunn and his Adam's apple that had St. Vitus' dance, I decided to build Siwash's offense around him. That was good strategy on my part, I soon found out, but then I felt a little uncertain. I handed Bunn a ball and told him to kick it He had learned quite a bit during his first year. I took him under my wing and gave him an hour every day of special training. This lasted for about three weeks and his progress was so remarkable that in the first game of the '29 season he was a sensation. His running game was excellent. He had learned most of the tricks—pivot, knee action, hip swing, straight-arm, change of pace and above all, speed. He later developed into one of the most elusive runners who ever roamed a football field. He was hard to tackle and harder to bring down after he (Continued on Page 4) TUITION REDUCTION GIVEN TO STUDENTS These students of the Junior college who paid their tuition in full during tho registration period received a 10 per cent reduction in tuition for the second semester. This reduction was made possible by the executive committee of the school in accordance with tbe recent cut in salaries received by the faculty. "We believe that the students of the Junior college deserved this benefit and due to the cut the faculty recently received, the executive committee voted for the lower tuition," Assistant Dean N. K. Dupre stated. All students who registered at the early period and who did not pay their fees in full were permitted to make additional payments in order to benefit by the new ruling. Students unable to pay their tuition in advance did not receive the reduction in their fees. However, they were able to make notes with the college for their payments and will be able to take up these notes at various periods during the term. "The executive committee regretted that all students would net share the reduction alike, but owing to the circumstances, we believe the new ruling to be fair to all concerned," Mr. Dupre observed". This reduction is in keeping with the reduced school budget for 1932 and places the Junior college within Its limits for the new year.
