Transcript THE COUGAR THE COUGAR'S CAVE By James Brough Exams being over, we ought to have a little more paper talk. The old Coug; had to lay low while the teachers were on their pass and flunk high horse, but now we can stick his head out of the cave and give a few cat-calls. We caught a sweet bit of philosophy from the Seguin Lone Star Lutheran the other day that helped us look the well known D's in the face. "Some men smile at the dawn, But the man worth while Is the man who can smile When his three front teeth are This Lone Star Lutheran has a well balanced make up, by the way, and its staff keeps its front page filled up with hot, interesting news. Take a few of its headlines: RAPID PROCESS ANNOUNCED BY "THE GROWL" STUDENTS AND FACULTY HEAR ST. OLAF CHOIR GIVE CONCERT ABOUT THE MEXICAN QUESTION IN TEXAS It sounds interesting enough to read, doesn't it? And it's all in good form. From the California Cronical, Pasadena, a neat little note came floating in. "The Pasadena Junior College is planning to organize the sponsor-pal system of friendly welcome. The students that wish to will act as a pal for the new students—showing them the campus, attending Vesper Service, helping them register, and making them acquainted with other students." That sounds fine, but we wonder who will buy the cigars? The old cougar was just curling up for a nap the other afternoon, when in bounced The Broadcaster, an Iraan High School monthly. He got alt hot and bothered looking this snappy little paper over. It has all the impetuousity of early adolescence, and a nice little focused makeup. An example of its style is found in a column called 'The Announcer Says.': "Don't forget the I«gro Minstrel, February 27th." "We wonder if Mr. Burroughs was ever a bell-hop." The Cougar doesn't know whether Mr. Burroughs was ever a bell-hop 01 not, but he is willing to bet that 'The Announcer' will not receive an A from Mr. Burroughs. A sport sheet to be proud of is "The Pony Express,' from the Sacramento. California Junior College. Sport news, sport dope, sport cartoons; in fact it is a pretty sporty set up. Grant- land Rice may have to pull his head down into his coat collar if this keeps up. Oh-oh! Oh-oh! Smell that meat? Excuse me just now, and I'll see you some more. DID YOU KNOW THAT Williard Nesmith was the most representative boy at Heights in '28?

The Cougar players are using the famous West Coast style of play which Coach French brought to the school. They have kept the opposing teams searching for a workable defense. With only two letter men back from last year, a fast breaking offense has been molded, capable of the smoothest work, and a man for man shuttle defense. The most successful working group so far is composed of Lynn Davis, Hags Matthews, forwards; "Flash" Franum, center; Nesmith and Furman, guards. Matthews and Nesmith are the returning letter men from the squad coached by C. B. Smith last year. Fred Aebi, Leroy Daily, and Slim Sweeney have seen considerable service at forward, while "Scotty" Fine- gold and Jimmy Oliver have worked in well as guards.
