The Rostrum, formerly the Houston Junior College Oratorical Association, elected the following officers at the last ; business meeting: Howard Branch, president; Lucile Sealey, vice- president; Marjorie Clark, Secretary- treasurer. It is the purpose of the Rostrum to stimulate intrest in all phases of public and private speech, including extempore speaking, oratory, debate and the judging of contest. Although this club does not hold inter-collegiate debates, it is through its members that they are made possible, as it is here that the speakers get their training. ROSTRUM DEBATERS Student Inventory— (Continued from Page 1) Mr. Dupre, and we couldn't have a more attractive or a more interesting The first year there was MADE- LAINE KEEFE, who was chosen most, beautiful or some such. And CHRISTIE, whose first name we are almost sure begins with an M. MILDRED BRAMER came out that year too and did exceedingly well in Dramatic Club productions. She's at Rice now, making good grades, a credit to dear old Junior College. MARY ELIZABETH RIGG graduated 1st June and Is in "Our Lady of the Lake" now. She was probably the moat popular of all the girls who have attended here. When one thinks of M. E. one just tturally thinks too of EUGENE TADLOCK, our most handsome chap, and CRAWFORD WILLIAMS, the reporter, who didn't learn about newspapers from Mr. Birney. FRANK LADIN would cut class and take a poor girl riding any time, and FRED MOSK was right there with his ANNIE RAY QUALTROUGH was by far the sweetest and friendliest girl on the campus, and there aren't enough nice things to say about her bewitching dimples. From Galveston came BROOKS DAVIS, almost red-headed. And from S. M. U. MORRIS (Speck) BROWN- LEE, who quit much too soon to give everybody a fair chance. J. D. LARKIN was out the other night to give the freshmen a treat. After one gets inured to Junior College, there are some things sorely issed and J. D.'s sweet, sweet, smile is one of them. And of course PAT QUINN'S very sarcastic remarks. DOROTHY DOWNMAN, brutally frank and darling, and chasing madly after her, WALLY BANKS, who, we vere very surprised to learn, has actually been admitted to Rice. This year there are more pretty girls—fr instance ADELE DRINKLE. ery blonde and with very nice pedaj extremities. And MARY ADELE COBB with quite the most marvellous eyelashes. Then MAURINE EDMINSTER, just out of high school, and a favorite with the male contingent. New out here is ED CUNNINGHAM, who conspires with that Adonis, HARRY SEAMAN. And of course, TONY CRAPITTO, whom everybody likes immensely. Another old student who is very popular—JIMMY MORRIS. And his mother calls him James. Unless you're very dumb, you'll know by now that that Reo roadster belonged to FRED WEIGMAN. He's a very interesting personality and omething very new. And two more stars: BOBBY Mc- CULLOUGH and ROY HOFHEINZ, both of whom have enough of that elusive quality called "school spirit" for ten other people. people. And we couldn't forget those two very popular sophomores: PETE GARRISON and HOWARD BRANCH. Pete has winning ways and Howard is horribly intel'ectual, besides being other things. These are some of the outstanding students who have gone and are gong to Junior College. We said students, not scholars. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEJV YEAR To my friends of H. J.
