Transcript THE COUGAR PEEPING UNDER tU S5§ H. 3. C. SPORTS Since the Junior College is sponsoring all forms of spring sports, we are all represented in the sporting realm. Although baseball, track, tennis, and golf have proved to be too streneous for our athletes, they are rapidly finding their stride at tiddly-winks, horse shoe pitching, and "you chase me awhile." We have been asked to announce that anyone wishing to try out for these teams is requested to report to Archie French in the gym at tea time. • * * STYLE It seems to have become a fad among the sporting element of this institution to come to school attired in the so-called "riding apparel." We have a sneaking hunch that their idea in wearing these "hoss clothes" is to let everyone know that they are possesed with the rare art of horsemanship. Or it may be that their plan is to wear boots in order to display their shapely legs to the feminine sex. We offer these style plates several of those little noises that so closely resemble a duck call. PROSPECTS The Houston Junior College for negroes has several bright football prospects out for spring training. There is an interesting list of nicknames given these stars by their team-mates. Some of these names include "Black Comet," "Dusky Flash," "Whitey," "High Stepper," "Red DeviL" and several others which we can't recall. FACULTY SPORTS The writer suggests a fund for providing the faculty with sporting equipment several weeks ago. Contributions have failed to come in as fast as expected. Let us again say that this fund will be used solely for the benefit of the overworked instructors of our school. We are sure that everyone is aware of the fact that our teachers deserve some sort of recreation to break the monotony of dishing out "Fs" in wholesale quantities. Let's all rally 'round our maestros and send in those contributions! While we're on the subject of the lighter sports, news just came crashing into the editorial sanctum that Carl La Firney has been matched with Strangler Lewis for the world's strangling championship. MOLECULE'S— (Continued from Page 3) hurriedly, but was caught in the act by a lovely lady, who carried me captive in a glass jar. I shall be used, she says to clean floors or clothes. At any rate, I shall be useful before I expire. I am proud to know that I am part of the most vital commodity on earth and shall die happy, because the world will be busier, cleaner, faster, and, may be happier, for my having lived in it. Moral: It is better to have suffered and served than never to have served at all. THE COUGAR'S CAVE The Bat, the publication of the Paris Junior College, is a good little paper, with lots of humor to make it more interesting. It is a small but neatly balanced edition. Again we hear from The Pacific Star, published by the Mount Angel College at St. Benedict, Oregon. The paper this issue contains many interesting write-ups of school activities, and a picture of their attractive new monastery. Some good humor and lots of it in this paper. We like that. A paper decidedly different is The Pilot, published by the Port Arthur High School student Each feature section is named according or in connection with the name of the paper. The Port Hole has lots of humor. State rooms evidently belongs to the club columns, something different from their Club Room. Unique idea, and quite clever. Whether a special edition or not, we liked the April 9 Forty-Niner that we received. Quite humorous. Although none of the names in any of the write- ups were familiar, we enjoyed them thoroughly. The Apache Pow-Wow is published by the students of the Tyler Junior College. Judging by headlines, they have been having elections in their clubs, and pledging in the fraternities and sororities. Nice paper. We like it HUMOR Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch a pail of water. Jack came down with a broken crown, And Jill came down with her father. "Love fifteen." "Love thirty." "Love forty." Traveler: "Ah! a tennis game, I presume?" Servant: "No. It's not a tennis game, and you better get the 'ell away from this harem." Doc- "This wine, women, and song racket is killing you." "Red" D.: "All right. I'll never sing again as long as I live." Fellow (holding one-half of one pair of twins); "You say their names are Al Smith and Herbert Hoover?' Proud Mama: "Yep." Fellow: "Well—er, guess this one must be Al." Mr. Harris: "We're getting up a raffle for a poor old man. Won't you buy a ticket?" Portia G. "Mercy, No! What would I do with him if I won him?" Mr. Pearson: "My daughter sprang from a line of Peers." Doc Adison: "Well, I jumped off a dock once myself." WHERE THEY ORIGINATED You can't keep a good man down.— Jonah.

J. C. Even our coach has the bug. Last week we were pleased to see Mr. French out at Herman Park in a teachers' tournament. The event lasted from 7 until 11 a.m. Some stayed longer, however. Mr. French couldn't find his ball until 4 o'clock. C. H. Albert reports that hereafter he will never play golf with George Perry. "It's all right to tee your ball up on the fairway I suppose," said Albert, "but he went too far when he teed them up on the putting-greens." N. C. Jensen tells us that he once saw Bobby Jones play in Florida. "Bobby is sure good," said Jensen. All of which goes to show how educational travel is. O. D. Brown, who operated a downtown roof minaturo golf course last summer, says that his place was often visited at night by chorus girls from the nearby theatres. Although they went up there to make "short putts," O. D. says they frequently took "long drives." Arthur Sweitzer claims that when he drives, his greatest hazard is the tee- bo x. Caddies tell us that in the ditch out at Camp Logan Ferd Geyer always uses his "hand mashie." "When I drive," Carleton Thompson was saying, "I tee the ball off my left toe, place my feet wide apart, make a complete pivot and full swing, at the top of which, I cock my wrist, and then I come through with all my force!" "And then?" asked Vincent Artale. "Well, I cuss my caddie out for talking and making me top the ball." Last Sunday Professor Miller played his usual game except he threw away his niblic rather than his mid-iron. They tell us a popular golfer of J. C. plays with a hole in his right pants pocket. After making his shot he walks over to the most advantageous spot, drops a ball through the hole in his pocket, and allows it to roll out on the turf. Then he yells, "Hey, looky where I found my ball!" Pretty good idea, eh? Kinda' hard on girl players, tho'. Next month the Freshman-Sophomore tournament will be staged. All bids for adding machine contracts must be in N. K. Dupre's office by 3rd. PHIL 0. SOPHIE By Kenneth Phillips Speakin' uv an arrer he shot, an' a song he sung, Mr. Longfellow rote this: "Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow still unbroke; And the song, .from the beginning to end, I found again in the heart of ai friend." It's a purty good thing he didn't fin' the arrer in the hart uv his frien', insted uv in the oak, wher it belonged. Knites uv the H. J. C, here's a tip: ". . , Straightway I was 'ware, So weeping, how a mystic Shape did1 Behind me, and drew me backward by the hair; And a voice said in mastery while I strove, 'Guess now who holds thee?' — 'Death'. I said. But there, The silver answer rang: 'Not Death, but Love.*" Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrot thet. She mustuv been talkin' about her husban', Robert. I hope so, enny- how. Fred Collins is alius spoutin' off about an old favorit thet comes from "Locksley Hall" by Tennyson, the ninteenth an' twentieth lines, in case you wanta look it up for further ideas: "In the spring a livelier iris changes on the burnished dove; In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love." Now don't you fellers all run to th' library wantin' a copy uv Tennyson's pomes—sortuv take it easy like. Spring aint over yet by a long shot. Speakin' uv a young man's fancy, le's talk about Miss Sally Pritchens fer awhile. My rivel is still out uv toun. Her an' me are goin' on a nice, little bay party som uv these fine spring mornin's. I "Were the whole realm of nature That were a present far too small; Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all. —Watts."

I know who wrot thet. It wuz Thomas Gray. Wal, I'm glad Miss Sally ain't out on no desert. It's sortuv lik this, you know: "The inner side of every cloud Is bright and shining; Therefore let us turn our clouds about And always wear them inside out, To show the lining." My lining is kinduv worn, an' frayed at the edges, an' my krees has sortuv faded out, but its got to do for awhile, Here's a good receipt for mixin' a \ cure for the bizness depreshun: "Is thy cruse of comfort failing?

It tells all about how you get gypped out uv your money, if you've got any. I guess Mr. Chase wuz a Scotchman, so, mabe he still is.
