Transcript THE COUGAR The Cougar Scientist VOL. I. WATER.' WATER.' First One: "When water becomes ice, what change takes place?" Second One: "The price changes." GOOD POINTS Mr. Bishkin: "Chemistry has its good Johnny (chemistry student): "So do pins, yet they stick you." PERFECT TEST FOR GOLD Irate Mother: "Why, Johnny, all the gold fish are dead." Johnny (chemistry student): "Those were not gold fish, mom, or that sulphuric acid that I poured into the bowl wouldn't have affected them." A VOID "Where I spent Christmas last year, the thermometer dropped to zero." "That's nothing." "What's nothing?" "Why, zero.' REPETITION Mr. Bishkin: "I thought you took chemistry before.' Pearl Mitchell: "I did, but the faculty encored me." "Carbon monoxide gas in your garage will end all your engine troubles." ' UNSELFISHLY GENEROUS Mr. Hurst: "I'll take pleasure in giving you 81 in chemistry." Mathews: "Make it 100, sir, and thoroughly enjoy yourself." "A geology student at Warsity, eh, wot?—What's a geyser?" "The former emperor of Germany." Prohibition item.—Professor * engineering class): "What's a dry dock?" Student: "A physician who won't , give out a prescription." — Western Christian Advocate. SCRAMBLED INVENTIONS , Bride (over the telephone to hubby) "Oh, honey, can't you come home right away? I've mixed the wires in some way. The radio is geting covered with ' white frost, and the electric ice-box is singing: "Way Out West in Kansas!"— Union Pacific Magazine. "Is that man drinking?" "No, he has water on the knee, and he's taking anti-freeze solution."—Wisconsin Octopus. "Do you think that plastic surgery would improve my features?" "No." "What would you suggest?" "Blasting."—Punch Bowl. All lit up—Having been told that it was electricity that made his mother's hair snap when she combed it, Johnny bragged to a visitor: "We're a wonderful family; mother has electricity in i her hair and grandma has gas on her stomach."—Wright Engine Builder. If every molecule in a glass of water turned to sand they would cover the earth. Fair Co-ed: "The Bible says we should love our enemies." Any Stude: "Let's start a war." Mr. Bishkin: "Some acids are stronger than others. Now, I'll take carbolic acid." Class: "Whoopie!" Allison: You know, I'm funny. I • always throw myself into anything I undertake. Katheryn A.: How splendid! Why don't you dig a well. THE HALOGENS The halogens we will study, Our teacher said today, But mind you, all you dumbbells For this is not no play. If florine is the strongest And chlorine is the next, Well bromine makes an acid— That makes iodine a jest. But when their test is finished Remember this, dear friends, That halogens is a family Whose members are not twins. "Has any one seen Pete?" "Pete who?" "Petroleum." "Kerosene him yesterday and he hasn't benzine since." A FISH'S OPINION OF CHEMISTRY The subject that's called chemistry Is not so very dry As acids, salts, and bases Might send us all sky high. Now take sulfuric acid And get it on your hand You will yell for that ammonia And first aid dressing can. Now, buckle up, dear students, And read this once again, As Chem has made us realize What suckers we have been. Yours truly, PHIL. High Spots In The Halls The heighth of individuality—MONO MAYFIELD. One person whose voice has gained hall fame—that FRED STARK. The composer's inspiration of "You Darlyn"—GENEVIEVE WELDON. In between the rush to classes (we detect a note of sarcasm in the verb, "rush") we miss a familiar—well known face—which, of course, belongs to "BOBBY McCOLLOUGH—SOPHOMORE KING." B'lieve it or not—GLADYS JACOBS in a pensive mood, is it possible? Holding the farthest corner of the hall—LUCILLE CAFCALAS. Being late to classes has its advantages—we gather the impression from WILLARD NESMITH—seen ushering various members of the fair sex down the hall. A study in eyes—HULDA ALEXANDER. And — speaking of brown eyes— PHYLLISS WORKMAN has two of them, besides other assets. MAX LUDKE—local bed-time story teller for H. J. C. Research Work—by LULA MAE SMITH—Locker 149. FRANK BURNS, rehearsing a revolution before entering history class. LLEWELLYN ROSS—rushing by as speedily on her feet as she does on ice skates. Caught in hall traffic — LOUISE MORGAN. MARGARET MOUNGER—looking as though she wished there were elevators or psychology classes on the first floor. A popular group gathered around the school board's blessing to H. J. C.— our ever smiling, patient Mrs. Bender. MILDRED LARKIN and MELANEE GARRETT, still wondering who the unknown soldier is. And—in a huddle, ELIZABETH SINCLAIR, FERNE SWEENEY, MAURINE EDMINSTER and CHRISTINE FITZGERALD. Well, well, well—spring and a new term are here. Honest, these days have a spell on me, but I don't think I am the only one. We have a brand new bride—Ragland by name, nee Virginia Williams. Our congratulations and best wishes. Well! (again) here's Terry Russ roam- in' our halls. Don't blame him. There's a mighty good attraction. Along with the new term comes a lot of new students. Among them, George Perry, a very individual young man. For goodness' sake—look! Lee Meyers and Sammie Lee. Well, p'raps wonders never will cease. There's that very attractive Janice Beery. Very charming in yellow. "Red" Delery is now plodding along at our old Alma Mater. Welcome! Cute lil' Portia Garrett, back from Our Lady of the Lake, stepping around looking things over. There's Madolyn McGraw. Sweet girl, quite pretty, too. Ah—our editor approaches. None other than Everett Kendall, an ceedingly nice and very capable young "gent." Nellwyn Turner, that very accon plished young lady, causing quite bit of comment. There goes one of "the" blondes- Llewellyn Ross. Striving very hard to please is Miss lone Brown. Hi there! It's Max Ludtke standing around "chinning" with various ones. And there's my S. P. (Secret Passion, in case)—Harold Steele. ■ Have you seen Juanita Parker? think she's a honey, says me. Well, darlings, I simply must get to With heaps o' love, —Cutie. Marriage is like a railroad sign. When you see a pretty girl you stop, then you look, and after you are married you listen. Society CURRENT MAGAZINES SHOULD BE STUDIED The Joy of Being Editor Getting out this paper js no picnic. If we print jokes people say we are silly—If we don't they say we are too serious. If we clip things from other papers—wo are too lazy to write them ourselves. If we don't we are stuck on our own stuff. If we stick close to the job all day, we ought to be out hunting up news_ If we go out and try to hustle, we ought to be on the job in the office. If we don't print contributions, we don't appreciate genius; and if we do print them, the paper is filled with bunk. If we make a change In the other fellow's writeup, we are too critical. If we don't we are asleep- Now like as not some guy will say, w&swiped this from some magazine. We did.—Exchange. EX-STUDENTS MAKE GOOD Miss Irene Cafcalas, former H. J. C.

FLOOD LIGHTS AID J. C. NIGHT CLASSES No more will parked automobiles about H. J. C. be in danger of being stripped of their accessories and drained of their gasoline. No longer will departing students grope their way in darkness to cars and busses. t Large flood rights have been placed about the front of the building in such a manner that they throw their light about the building, grounds, and driveways. Many students have expressed satisfaction over the improvement everyone was left with a newer and greater inspiration for the club work. This club is the first library club formed in Junior College. If it proves a success the work will be carried on and much will be accomplished in the literary field. KRUPP & TUFFLY SHOES FOR MEN: "FRIENDLY FIVE" SHOES for men and younger men.
