Transcript THE COUGAR THE FALL OF THE FRESHMEN You've all heard the old saying, "All that goes up is bound to come down". Well, that's just what happened lo quite a number of freshmen from the 1931 classes of seniors. There's Rob Creech, dashing blonde yoll-leder from Jeff Davis. During his high school career, he was THE man. It seems such a pity too, just when one gains such a wide popularity and wonderful distinction, to have it all go on the rocks over night. But he doesn't suffer alone. "The mighty Frye from Central High," who ranked with such Romeos as Gilbert, Gable, Chaplin, and the like, has also suffered a severe come-down. Even the versatile Murray Hart, with his ever-ready "line" has to think up a bigger and better one, in order to compete with the men of this age. We have another famous yell-leader George Cleveland, in our midst, noted for his individuality in the "sipping of tea". These great men will always be remembered for their heroic yell- leading at the All City Boys game on New Year's Day. It was those boys, who stoically stood out in the mad and rain and cheered their team to victory. Oh, for Jhe return of the day when yell leaders were yell leaders. In glancing through the pages of this old worn out history, I found a picture of Wibna Lindsey, vivacious queen of the 1931 hig*. school beauties. This fair damsel from the downtown high school has gone down in history along with Garbo, Dressier, Moran, and the other beauties of the screen. On the page opposite Wilma's picture, I found a picture of a beautiful blonde, and on closer examination, discovered it to be none other than our own Melbadel Wright, another former high school queen. There was a time, I discovered in the history book, when the name, B. W. Payne, Jr., would have caused a stir among any group of the fair sex, but alas, there, are of ther B. W.'s, H. D.'s, V. F.'s, and A. E.'s all swimming around in the same "slimy" ocean. Harry Phillips, coming from the species, who are fortunate enough to possess colored hair (the color being red) at one time enjoyed the distinction of editor of the Cosmos, Sam Houston Yearbook, but of course, you understand that is history. * Grace Schoelman, former Sam Houston belle,-and a pal to all the male sex, has some competition in the new world, what with all the beauties, kittens, etc.. that have migrated over to this place called "College". Gladys Howard, individually known as "the one-man- woman", is also found in the dilapidated pages of Sam Houston history. Ruth Depperman, beautiful brunette; and former Texas U. student, is enjoying, or should I say, enduring the "curse of the sophomore". Opal Brown,' blonde beauty of Jeff Davis, has also known more popular days. Don't worry, Opal, you'll be a sophomore by and by. . Leslie Martin, noted saxophone pbvyer" during the days of the Aristocrats, along with Lynn Galena, is also suffering from this malady called "insignificance". Vivian Lesher, better known as "Pat", the little "lisping ingenue" from Sam Houston, is seldom seen around without a freshman. They'll grow larger, pat, in tho years to come. Jimmie Brinkley, the boy with the "stay- comb" hair, has decided to take life as it is, and forget that ha was ever a daring senior. I can't help but shed a tear when I think of the rise and fall of these celebrities. 'Tis sad, but true. Don't worry, freshmen, theres' always a chance for a comeback.-Bet I y Coving- Scenes at the Formal Opening of Houston Junior College The above pictures present scenes at the official opening of school and some of the prominent students in school activities. Top left, a general view of the assembled students at the formal_ opening. Bottom left, members of the faculty and visitors on the stage. Right, Rcna Mac Butler, recently elected president of the Cougar Collegians, girls' pep squad. Bottom, left to right, are Cy Shaw, president of the students' association, and Jim Bertrand, president of the sophomore class. "Windy" Graham Speaks As we go into the last half of the ninth inning the score is tied. Red Grange winds up and tosses the oval the middle of the platter. Demp sey delivers a foul blow that hits Catcher Tilden just below the belt. He takes the count of five, but is up on his feet again. The next pitch is in there ar.d Demp- sey grounds to third baseman, St rangier Lewis, who applies a head-lock and tosses the old horse hide to First Baseman Lindberg for the putout; making it second down and 10 to go. Al Capone now walks to the plate So Say Sophs Dear little freshie that feels so big, Great big soph'll make you jig In turned around ties, caps and bows, Red suspenders—colors surely do show. You looked so important awhile ago, Caps and gowns you donned with a glow, You strutted about, you were graduates then, i Your importance is dimmed—your time you spend In carrying trays, and crapping feet, You bow to all the girls you meet. Freshie, so green, you have far to go To prove to a soph that it's a lot you know. Thru The Bunghole With Dr. "Bull" Schuder Helen: Isn't Fido a naughty dog, mama? He ale my dolly's slipper. Mother: Yes. darling, he ought to be punished, Helen: I did punish him. I went straight to his kennel and drank his He appears confident of putting the old apple on the spot. Al is safe when Second Baseman Bobby Jones fails to sink a putt after signaling for a fair catch to Capones fly. The crowd is going wild as Tom Mix rides Tony to the plate. On the first serve Mix drives the ball over the goal posts for a touchdown, ending the fourth quarter. Dr. Oberholter jerks off his head gear- Professor: "Somebody wake up that freshman back there on the last seat.'" Despite the much ballyhooed depres- on and the fact that there will be comparatively few holidays this year, the student body of H. J. C. numbers some rather remarkable characters. It may be that the present season will witness a goodly number of distorted romances. There is one freshman enrolled who up until last week had been giving a certain girl friend the grand rush. He was even in the habit of taking her to Sunday school every Sunday. However, this past Wednesday the said freshman, at the suggestion, of a group of Sophomores, proposed to a J. C. girl and she accepted. Sunday, girl number one went to Sunday school with the arch rival and the hero of this story was absent entirely. Freshman Julian Hurwitz expresses pleasure at the idea of the freshman girls going without cosmetics and wearing low-heel shoes. Hurwitz states that he has always wondered just what a girl really did look like anyway. It is rather hard on some of the girls though. We males never knew what artists they really were. Mister (this will probably come out on Wednesday and we have to address all sophs in that manner) Hugo Leaders evidently felt at his maternal instinct creepng up on fun, as he brought a nice new freshman (wrapped in moisture-proof, dust-proof celopane) and had him enroll in the engineering class. Leaders is from the Heights, but he can't do anything about it. Oh yes, the freshman is Harry Augustus Ech- Fame is fleeting as the wind however, and now we learn that Harry D. Mathews, the demon pianist, has two under-studies. Leave it to Harry to go anybody one better. His pro- tges are listed as Brown J. Woolley and Bob Creech. They take chemistry, but are more famous as motor-cycle- jockeys. We have it from rather unreliable source that one of our most prominent sophomore girls has let the endearing term of 'Mai, which the freshman girls must use in addressing her, go to her head and is now giving advice to the lower classmen. This being her first year as a soph, maybe she should be forgiven if she advises the younger girls never fo slap a boy when he is chewing tobacco. In view of the recent statement of a Professor C. G. Shaw that persons who whistle are morons, we feel reluctant to state that Fish Leslie Martin and Eugene Heard and Soph James Julian will join the writer in rendering the "Peanut Vendor". Fish Heard i3 the original hard-luck student. He dropped his 7:30 to 8:30 class on Monday and on the following Wednesday there was no class at that hour on account of the freshman and sophomore class meetings. Pursuant with our desire to present only the outstanding news of H. J. C. in this column, we make the following offer: If you are in need of publicity of this sore, merely address a card or letter to Dr: 'Bull' Scuder, in care of this YOU, FROSH! "You freshmen!" Let the fate of Aloysius Blosser guide you in the straight and narrow path set down for freshmen. Aloysius was a slime in the Junior college several years ago. He was the type who disagreed with every rule regarding freshman conduct at college, forgetting that he was no longer in high school. Like many of the 1931 freshmen, Al believed that it was his duty to violate any regulation when a sophomore was not around. It often happened that he was successful in his subordination "I rate as much as any sophomore," was poor Al's motto. One day the luckless Aloysius turned up missing from his classes. His absences continued until the school authorities were forcer to drop him from the student body. Al's classmates never completely solved his disappearance. Many believed that little Al had quit school to go to work while others thought that he had busted-out. However, no one knew that our beloved freshman was given his lesson by several sophomores and in that manner decided not to remain in school. Every freshman now in the Junior college can fix himself in the good graces of all- upper classmen by ae- acquainting himself with the freshman regulations and by obeying them. Remember: the sophomore class is the ranking part of the student body! John H.: I can't get the car to go,— we're stuck. I simply can't budge it. Hula A.: Just a minute, I'll run across the street to Portia's. She told me they keep a budget.
