Transcript THE COUGAR SEE ALL STARS AT RICE FIELD NEW YEARS DAY Brilliant Passes Feature Soph Win Frosh Take Fast Game from Sophs Fast Play Marks Conflict Which Required Extra Period Inspired by the taste of victory in the initial game of the season, a fighting freshman basketball team turned back the soph quintet 19-18 in a fast overtime tilt. The game was marked with fast, clean playing and drew an enthusiastic crowd. A free throw by Peterson, freshman forward, in the closing minutes of play in the overtime period provided the frosh with the winning point. Although the slimes took an early lead the sophs evened the court at the half and managed to gain a one-point lead at the close of the third quarter; the score being 16-15. In the fourth period bo!h teams tightened up and little shooting was done. The sophs forged ahead when Matthews scored a long shot and appeared to have the game in the bag, but the slimes opened up a passing attack that tied the score 18-18 as the final whistle blew. Brahnan and Matthews took it onto themselves to give the upperclassmen victory and hit the basket repeatedly but could not score. While the frosh battling with a do or die determination got the break that netted the winning free throw. ALL-STARS TO FEATURE GRID GAME JANUARY 1 Students Urged To Use Junior College Library "We hope the students will use and enjoy the library much more than heretofore, and will not hesitate to call upon us to assist them in locating material for which they are searching." Thus Mrs. H. H. Shearer extends to the students her invitation to use the library. The shelves of the library have been constantly increasing. The new books received in the Junior college libraryj now total 450. They have all been classified and are on the shelf ready for students' use. The books deal with a variety of subjects, but there are especially good biographies and dramatic criticisms. There is also an interesting collection of novels. Although the college has accession to the high school library, there will be little need of using their books, as the college library is well supplied with interesting books dealing with practically every subject. ophomore Entry in the Beauty Contest Santa Goes Snipe HuntiiV Fom the looks of Santy's bag thi: yea, he might have been "snipe' huntin'. And from the conversation that is circulating, everybody has come back from a big game hunt with the well known burlap, and they don't seem to be braggin' about it either. Such snaiches of conversation a: "Whatcha goin' give Bill for Christmas this year?" and a "Not much of anything, depression's on, woman," makes me believe I'd better scratch off a few names from my fastly diminishing Christmas list. I hope Bill feels the same. Ya know the ole sayin', "Do unto others, as they'd like to do unto you," might be O. K. in some instances, but when it comes to receiving gifts, they might like to give you something, but don't, so you might just practice what they preach, or sumpin', where Santy's concerned, anyway. At any rate, what I'm driving at is this, don't let depression deprive you of a gift. Don't give and you won't receive. H. W. SOUTH 5e or^anizcp^ coached, \ TRAINED, AND PLAYED ON 3$*MJ£)the FIRST Texas A£M FooTBALL TEAM- Students Urged to Attend Big Charity Game on New Year's Day New Year's Day the Houston All- Star football team, composed of players from the five local high schools, will play the Dallas team at Rice field. All proceeds from the game will be used to pay for clothes and food for needy children so that they may be able to stay in school. This game is sponsored by the Arabia Temple and the local schools, and will show the work of an all-city team that will be hard to stop, according to reports from Ed. Duggar and Arnold Krichamer, two of the best coaches in this district. Prices for the New Year's game have been materially reduced. Student tickets are priced at 50c; general admission at the gate is 75c for adults; reserved seats $1.00, and $1.50 for bo* seats. "No person who is interested in seeing a good football game should mist the New Year's game, when the Houston All-Stars will play the Dallas high schools' team," Dr. E. E. Oberholt; superintendent of schools here, stated Wednesday. "This year, all proceeds from this game will be given to a most worthy cause. From these funds, children in our schools will be given food and clothing, which will allow them to stay in school. Thus attendance at the game becomes both a pleasure and charitable deed." Let your New Year's resolution be: Attend the AU-Star Game at Rice field. The Sport Editor Talks in His Sleep FANPITS HAVE Shot AT HIM Three Tints &VT HAVE BEEN (UNSUCCESSFUL URSAft O? TWE HOUSTON jUMloa couuE-ae . With the 1931-32 basketball season getting started and the sophomore- freshman basketball games over, Coach French has turned his attention to the varsity basketball team. Besides a number of high school lettermen, French has three veterans to mold his first string team around. Harry Matthews, Bob Brahnan, and Bill Jeter make up this trio. The freshman quintet copped two out of three games with the highly touted sophs and brought out a n ber of star performers to grab spotlight along with the regular from last season. The initial game of thi season saw the frosh grab a 23-20 victory in a heated overtime tilt. In the second game the going was not so smooth and the slimes managed to get the breaks and turn back the upperclassmen 19-18. In the final game the sophomores hit their stride and checked the onslaught of the freshmen by winning 17-14. In Kellogg, speedy running center, and Parks a classy forward, the frosh boast a pair of stars, while the sophs have a smooth working pair of forwards in Morgan and Wroten. That boxing is growing in popularity and the number of followers is increasing is evident to the one who enters the gym during physical education period. Much credit is due to James Julian, who is interested in the pugilistic sport and has encouraged boxing in the gym classes. If enough nterest is shown, a boxing tournament will be held during the basketball season, A contest of this kind should create quite a bit of interest providing a well-balanced card can be arranged. Any students versed in the art of bowling and interested in forming a , bowling team see the scribe column. The South Main Bowling Alleys have extended an invitation to a Junior College bowling team to join the commercial and school bowing leagues. Bob Brahnan will be a big shot at this event, having won recognition by bowling on a Mis- I WILMA LINDSAY A Freshman Entry in Beauty Contest Courageous Defense Keeps * Victors Score Down To 17 Points A fast passing attacked, formed around Brahnan, Jeter, and Matthew*, proved, too much for the freshman quintet in the final game of the soph- frosh series and gave the sophomores a 17-14 win over the slimes. The sophs literally passed the froih - dizzy and took the lead in the early part of the first period, never letting up once they got the jump on the slimes. As the soph quintet kept up * j their fast offensive- the slimes fell back into a desperate defensive and only in this way succeeded in stopping the upperclassmen. In the third quarter the slimes evened the count j but failed to hold it and the sophi pulled away to a three-point lead and I managed to hold it to the end. | Both teams showed an improvement over the last encounter, which speeded up the game considerably. The sophomores used only seven men throughout the entire game while the frosh sent in substitutions repeatedly in order to stop the onslaught. souri Pacific team this summer. Brahnan boasts the high score of 591 for a three games set, making an average of 197 points a game. There should be no doubt that the basketball battles staged by the soph- fresh girls brought out the masculine part of the school. Besides getting a great kick out of the antics of the players, the boys picked up a few points on fighting spirit. These basketball games have been bitterly contested till the final whistle. As long as the girl sophomore five has Louise Morgan they need not worry about where their goals are coming from. Morgan has a dead eye for the basket and sinks a long shot as easy as a crip. In the first game Morgan made 14 out of the total 17 points scored by the sophomores. Six of these were scored in the first half and eight in the last half. Several parties in school have boasted of getting the limit in ducks this season. We know for a fact that George Gayle and friend have been making weekly trips up near Edna and returning with plenty of ducks and squirrels. Fred Aebi and his * hunting party have journeyed to an "exclusive place" and brought back something besides wet feet. .-, These so-called H. J.

A stiff schedule was carded last year with commercial teams furnishing most of the opposition. Among the teams played last year were Hughes Tool, Southern Pacific, Houston Dental College, Amos Club.
