had better not go into that.

THE COUGAR'S CAVE
"Big doings" have been going on at
Albert Sidney Johnston or so the Johnston Judge tells us. A big event in this
year is the activity program, put on by
the various clubs and activities in the
school. All are included in the program which shows the results of
achievement in the line of club entertainment. Wish we could have seen it;
must have been very clever.
Again we hear from "The Kennel" of
the Texarkana Junior College. They too
have held popularity contests, have
had plays presented, and all the usual Wm

Again, we have heard from the
"Forty-Niner," published by students
of the Yuba County Junior College, at
Marysville, California. There are lots
of things happening out there; freshman teas and commencement balls in
the social line. Graduation will be
along pretty soon. Their paper has had
its formal entrance into the California
Junior College Press Association at the
spring convention. That's taking steps
toward bigger and better things.
Here is "The Wrangler" of Edinbergh,
Texas, again. It has been a long time
since we have heard from them, but
here is a little of the "going-ons" that
have been happening around there. The
Second Annual Older Boy Conference
was held in March. Boys from all over
the State of Junior College age attended. It is promoted by the State Y. M.
C. A. There were lectures, music, discussions, and consultations with "The
Boy, a Citizen," as the theme of the
whole conference. Should have been
beneficial as well as entertaining, boys.
"The Herald" of the State College at
Arkansas again comes to us. The first
State College Senior class graduates this
year. Activities were planned for May
14. This year's senior class has the dis-
itnetion of being the first to be able to
graduate with a four-year record. The
college was only admitted last fall to
the class of four-year institutions.
