Transcript STUDENT VIEWS COLLEGE NEWS THE COUGAR PUBLISHED BY THE JOURNALISM STUDENTS OF THE HOUSTON JUNIOR COLLEGE MAKE A DATE FOR SOPH BALL HOUSTON, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1, 1933 Pen Points Since the last issue of the Cougar, many significant incidents have occurred that deserve notice. One of the most prominent of these was that Freshman reception which caused so much comment among the students. That new system introduced at this affair whereby a Houston Junior college student could bring an outsider on his activity ticket was certainly a rousing success. There were no signs of the system being abused, and evidently the officials who permitted the inovation have seen now that H. J. C. students can make the right use of a good thing. Let's hope we can use the system for all future college af- There was only one thing which happened at the reception which certainly left a bad taste in the officials' mouths. . . . We're referring to that fraternity initiation affair. It wasn't exactly the right thing to bring the frat initiation into the reception, and we think the members realized this after it was called to their attention. At any rate, they discontinued their fun. It was the aftermath of the reception incident which caused the suspension of one of the students last week, and that was really a sad thing. The student asked readmission and has j gained it, we understand, so the less said, the better. However, we hope that this will serve as a test ease. One thing we found out long ago, buddies, was that no matter whether or not you're right, if the other fellow has the whip in his hand, you're wrong. Day after day, and night after night people eat. Many of us eat suppers » regularly in the college cafeteria. How many of us take our trays to the tray table after our meals? It's not so much trouble to do this little favor for the cafeteria workers, but it helps a lot when you want to get away by 9:30, so return your tray every time you eat up there. Through the means of this column the staff of the Cougar would like to express its appreciation to the three dailies for their welcome cooperation in donating cuts of pictures to us which can be used in this paper. The staff is able to cut expenses by one fourth by this little item and greatly appreciates the favors which the Post, Press, and Chronicle so graciously extend. . . . it's the little things , that count anyway. , Just to show you how those things happen, let us repeat a little occurrence we happened to notice in a club meeting not so long ago. It was a meeting of one of those clubs composed entirely of men, and proposals (Continued on Page 3) '33 GRADUATES ELECT LUCILLE BLACK AS CLASS LEADER Thirty-five members of the graduating class of 1933 met and elected officers last Wednesday. Officers elect- were Lucille Black, President; Harold Renfro, Vice president; Henry Jahnke, Secretary -Treasurer; Patrick Foley, Sergeant-at-arms. Mrs. Bender presented Miss Thoma- m, sponsor of the class, to the group of prospective graduates as the meeting opened. Miss Thomason told the ; what was expected of them and things that they should do before June. Mr. Dupre made a few comments of the possibilities of the class. Forty-two prospective candidates for graduation have signed up in Mrs. Bender's office. This is one more than the class of "32". Dean Dupre is hopeful that some of the other students who are eligible for graduation will sign up, thus making the class of "33" much larger than the class of last 'Definite plans for the class have not been made," said Lucille Black, President. "However, there will be another meeting of the graduates tonight to settle some of the business left over from the last meeting. I urge that all members of the class be at that meeting. It is very important, We want prompt attendance of the meetings so that all members may have a voice in some of the important problems which must be settled. "We wish to decide definitely hether or not the class will have invitations, pins, a banquet, and dance other than the regular graduation exercises."

LIBRARY CLUB PLANS Sanrise Breakfast On LUNCHEON MARCH 4 Schedule lor Saturday WOMAN'S FACULTY CLUB ENTERTAINED AT HOME OF MRS. B. M. EBAUGH A Mardi Gras theme was featured in the decorations for an afternoon bridge given by Mrs. Ebaugh and Miss Thomason recently to entertain the Woman's Faculty Club. The affair was given at the home of Mrs. Ebaugh. Carnival streamers and colored balloons were used to create a festive atmosphere. Mardi Gras colors of purple, greeri and gold were used in the color scheme. There were enough guests present for four tables of bridge. Later in the evening other members of the club arrived. A salad course was served. (Continued on Page 3) BRAVE, BOLD STUDENTS BRING BACK ALIVE 6-INCH SNAKE Armed with sticks, brooms and -other convenient weapons, several students recently dashed into the school library to do or die for dear old H. J. C. A small and thoroughly bewildered young snake was the cause of the uproar. One of the librarians absent-mindedly reached into a desk drawer, only to find the snake where no self-respecting reptile should be. The following commotion brought droves of fearless students who proved their salt by capturing the six-inch intruder after a mighty battle. The warriors "took! 'em back alive" to his native environment where he can prey on others who are unaware. The librarians now use extreme caution in opening their desk drawers, More than 100 guests are expected to be present at the Junior College Library Club luncheon to be given March 4, in the dining room of Stowers Furniture Company. Members of the Junior College faculty, public school officials and board members and Senior High school librarians and principals, have been invited. Among the speakers listed on the program are: Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer, president of Junior College; S. W. Henderson, M. A. Miller, Junior College professors, and the librarians of the city and county libraries. Isabella Ventresch, chairman of social committee, and Zelda Osborne, chairman of the program committee are in charge of arrangements. The time has been set at 12:30 noon. FROSH RECEPTION CALLED SUCCESS AS 300 ATTEND Approximately 300 students attended the Houston Junior College reception ind dance held in the main gymnasium of the school, Friday night, February 17. The entertainment was strictly a Junior College affair, with only two people admitted on an activity ticket. Ted Clifford's orchestra furnished music for the dance which began shortly after 9:30 p. m. An added feature was offered at the intermission, with three boxing and one wrestling matches presented to the dancers. Ben Young pinned Pat "Toothpick" Foley in five minutes to win the one- fall wrestling match. The loser showed his displeasure at the decision by lying on the mat and glaring at the referee. Melviri Feeney and Hamp Robinson fought two rounds to a draw in the first boxing contest In the second bout, Jimmy Oliver outpointed Harold Renfro for the best match of the evening. Rao King gained the decision over Ray Morris in the final bout. All of the matches were refereed by Leon Green, former H. J. C. student. The Houston Junior College's Outdoor Club will sponsor a sunrise breakfast March 5, 7:30 a.m., at Hermann Park. Misses Evelyn Cochran, Lillian Schwartz, Pauline Lingner, Dorothy Scarborough and Evelyn Veach are ii harge of the plans. There will be a charge of 15 cents for each person, to cover expenses of the food. Members and their friends may register with Irene Spiess, sponsor of the club, or Evelyn Cochran, secretary-trea surer. The club was organized at the beginning of the fall semester for the purpose of creating more interest in camp life, and learning the joys of out-of- doors. The girls are planning a week-end party at Clifton-by-the-Sea, in the near future. MAKING A MOVIE A ONE-ACT PLAY—BY C. W. SKIPPER Scene: Conference room of a large Hollywood motion picture studio.

Mr. Schultbenheimer: "Gentlemen, we are here to consider the scenerio written by Mr.—ah—by—" Writer: "The name is Smith." Mr. Schultzenheimer: "We are here to consider the scenerio written by Mr. Jones, and to discuss whether or not it is suitable for production on the screen." Writer: "I said the name is Sm—" Mr. Schultzenheimer: "Now Mr. Brown starts his scenerio with a Puritan maid crossing the ocean on the Mayflower, but I think it should be a soldier of fortune coming to America on the Bremen. Don't you think that is a good idea, boys?" Yes-men: (In chorus), "Yes, Mr. Schultzenheimer." First executive: "Magnificent!" Second executive: "Stupendous!" Third executive: "Colossal!" Writer: "But Mr. Schultzenheimer." Mr. Schultzenheimer: "Silence, please!" Yes-men: (In chorui), "Yes, Mr. Schu It zenheimer.'' Mr. Schultzenheimer: "The script says that the girl settles in the New England states where she teaches school. I think that the soldier of fortune should go to New York where he forms a partnership with a well-known gangster. What do you think of that, boys, is it a good idea?" First executive: "Magnificent!" Second executive: "Stupendous!" Third executive: "Colossal!" Writer: "But, Mr. Schultzenheimer, I think—" Mr. Schultzenheimer: "Mr. Black has here that the girl meets a man, anc. falls in love with him.

Second executive: "Stupendous!" Third executive: "Colossal!" Writer: "Listen, Mr. Schultzenheimer—" Mr, Schultzenheimer: "Mr. White has in his script a scene in a garden with the doves cooing, but I think we should change that to a gang fight, or maybe we could work in a war scene. Is that all right, boys?" Yes-men: (In chorus), "Yes, Mr. Schultzenheimer." First executive: "Magnificent!" Second executive: "Stupendous." Third executive: "Colossal!" Writer: "Mr. Schultzenheimer, I thought—" Mr. Schultzenheimer: "Mr. Gold- gerg has in his script that the couple marry and live happily forever after, but what do you say that we have the (Continued on Page 3) HJC DEBATERS DROP DECISION IN FIRST CONTEST OF '33 Debaters of the Junior College dropped their first contest of the year when the Houston Law School received a judge's decision Monday night after a heated argument from both sides. The question was: Resolved that the state ad valorem tax should be abolished in favor of a sales tax. The college team was composed of Jimmie Brinkley and Allen Marshall who chose to argue the affirmative side of the question. The Law School i, arguing the negative phase, was made up of Maxwell Higginbotham and Manuel Clemens. The Law students contended that with only a sales tax in force, the rich would escape paying their share of the taxation burden. The affirmative debators maintained that with the introduction of a sales tax that wealth which escapes the ad valorem tax could be called upon to bring in state revenue. And that more revenue would be earned since a sales tax would reach more people. The Junior College team has several debates booked for the near future. The exact dates will be announced Dramatic Club To Enter Play in State Contest Inaugurating a series of one-act plays the Dramatic Club last Monday night presented, "The New Minister Arrives" before members of the organization. The purpose of these plays is to give the members directing as well as acting, experience. There are eight such plays to be enacted, one making up part of the program for each meeting of the club. Aside from these plays the Dramatic Club will undertake a three-act comedy, a one-act play to be entered in the state contest, and a short skit to be presented in assembly. A try out for these plays will be held in the near future according to Mrs. Hooker, sponsor of the organization. A notice of the exact time will be posted on the bulletin board.
