The music was furnished by Ted Clifford and his band. The warm December atmosphere, together with the congeniality of the crowd, helped to make the dance the success that it was. The dance committee was composed of the following students: Mac Douglas, Gladys Howard, Donald Aitken, Eugenia Stevenson, Wilma Lindsay, T. B. Ellis, B. W. Payne, and Lula STATE INSPECTOR PRAISES COLLEGE W. E.

He was at that time $27 short of necessary funds. Basketball Hopes Soar With Wealth Of New Material With varsity basketball practice well under way, Coach French is buckling down to the job of putting out a first- class team. French has a wealth of new material from the high schools and commercial leagues, besides a few veterans from last year. Bob Brahnan, Harry Matthews, and Bill Jeter are three first-class perform- • ers, with Matthews and Brahnan lettering last year and Jeter a veteran of the courts. Jeter and Matthews play the forward posts, while Brahnan holds down the center position. These three players will see plenty of service ■ with the regulars and have grabbed the limelight among the sophomore cagers. Besides these three stars, they can put a speedy forward by the name , of George Snyder on the floor and a plenty good guard known as "Moose" Gonzales. There is plenty of material • in the sophomore bunch that can make any man's team. In the freshman camp, a number of stars are at hand. Practically all the • Houston senior high schools are represented, Taylor and Marshall, a pair of smooth working forwards, hail from Reagan. Malcolm Pech, Golden Bear football letter man, shows up well at I either the guard or forward post. George Gayle and Dick Ainsworth saw service with the Central cagers. Allen Weed, rangy Jeff Davis center, can "* truly play this pivot position. Besides these star performers, others showing up well are L. B. Manry, Lee Stone, V. F. Harrison, J. Kaufman, L. Gershen, Walter Peterson, and Adolph Marks. Last season, H. J. C. put out a well- . coached team that won recognition before the season was over.

Anything can happen during those ten or twelve days, and the Coug; knows of two things that are scheduled to take place that will probably interest the sophomores of the school. Two former H. J. C. students will be joined in marriage in a very short time. Aleene Pickett, former president of the Cougar Collegians, will be wed to Walter E. Crumpler, Jr., on the night of December 28 at the First Methodist church. Robert Moechel, former president of the John R. Bender Dramatic club, will love, honor and obey Miss Dora Lee Montgomery after the night of December 26 when he will become the vassal at the North Side Methodist church. These little news items "were given us by Mrs. Pearl Bender who takes a personal interest in all students and alumni members. She wants to wish you all a happy Christmas season. Dramatic Classes Score Signal Hit Domestic Comedy Is Witnessed by Author Who Lauds Able Presentation by Cast from Junior High HELP IS ASKED AS BEAUTY TILT LAGS General Apathy Is Main Feature of Contest for Queen of Beauty Although there are ,now nine girls entered in The Cougar beauty contest, interest is being shown by the students. The contest was started by The Cougar two months ago, and ballots have not been coming in as they should. Mainly for the sake of a little diversion, The Cougar started this thing; and when it starts something, it likes to finish it. This issue we are printing a number of pictures of the entrants and want you to decide who you think is the most beautiful freshman and sophomore girl in the Houston Junior College. You will find a ballot on page 1 and pictures of the contestants scattered throughout the paper. Look at them and make your choice. Show some interest in the little things around the school and the big ones will take care of themselves. Mark your ballots and drop them into the box furnished for that purpose and you will see things begin to pick up around this place. Cougar Subscribers Needn't Worry About Empty Dinner Table No wonder everybody knows about the Houston Junior College. Fred R. Birney sees to that. At the High School Press Association banquet held last week, Cougars played an important role in the atmosphere of the place. As a fitting table setting, school papers of the individual schools composed their tablecloths. According to Birney, every place where there were not enough papers from certain schools to cover the entire table, Cougars were promptly used to fill the bare spots. We ourselves saw them on the Booker T. Washington and Gawge Yates tables. applause for their presentation of "Why Husbands Go Wrong," by Murray H. Fly. Cyrus Hufsmith Shaw, ably cast as Frank Murton, business man, played his part with feeling, and it was a great interpretation. Anna Ruth Moore, as the wife of the wrong-going husband, repeated her co-star's feat and came through wonderfully. All in all, it was a great show, and all who saw- it had an enjoyable evening. Murray Fly, author of the play, who superintendent of schools of Odessa, Texas, traveled 600 miles to witness the play, and between acts he talked to the audience on the art of play writing. Dancers from HaUie Pritch- ard's studio also entertained while the scenes were being changed. Mr. Fly complimented the players upon their splendid presentation and said that the tedious journey was well th the time and trouble. BRIDGE IS GIVEN FOR FACULTY CLUB The Faculty Club of the Houston Junior College, composed of women members of the faculty and wives of teachers, was entertained at a bridge at the home of Miss Bessie M. Ebaugh on Saturday, December 5. A party to be held early in January at the home of Mrs. Wallace H. Miner is now under consideration. This is a new club at Houston Jun- or College, having been formed early this fall to furnish social contact among faculty members of the school. At present, an evening party is being planned to which both men and women will be invited. Later announcements will be made by Mrs. Pearl C. Bender, dean of women, who is arranging this Freshman Girls Have Classy Basket Quint The freshman girls have all the appearances of a first class cage team and have a small edge on the sophs. In the first game the frosh lost a closely contested game 17-14. But in the seco.'d encounter the sophs bit off too much and the freshmen walked away with an impressive 28-10 victory. This gives the slimes a slight advantage, having piled up a total of 42 points to the sophomores 27. Give yourself a treat while helping others—see the All Star game at Rice Field New Year's Day. DEAN DUPRE'S EIGHT POINTS TO SEEK STUDENT-FACULTY UNDERSTANDING AND ENTRY IN JUNIOR COLLEGE ASSN. If you have attended class at all for the past week or so, you probably have had an opportunity to hear Dean Dupre explain his "eight points." If you haven't, it will do you good to read them, and if you have, it will do you more good to have them imbedded deeper into your brains. We are delighted to print them in the paper and hope that they will help to better the Junior College and promote better understanding between the instructors and students. Also, they may indirectly help us gain entrance into the Southern Association of Junior Colleges. 1. All students absent from three classes will be brought before a committee composed of faculty members and if sufficient reason is not found for the abences, the student will be put on probation. 2. When a student ig put on probation, the next time he digresses from any regulaion of the college, he will be automatically expelled or suspended from the institution. 3. Girls will not be permitted to smoke on the campus or in the building. 4. Boys will not be permitted to smoke in the building, but can smoke on the outside. 5. Three tardies to class will be counted as one unexcused absence and may cause suspension. Students tardy to class will be expected to report their reason to their instructor and he will use discretion in the counting of such tardiness. 6. All students absent with good reason will not be excused from regular work, but are expected to make it up. 7. Drinking of liquor on the campus of the school is reason for immediate unquestionable suspension. 8. Instructors will be expected to treat all students equally and give grades thereby.
