Transcript Welcome Texas Teachers THE COUGAR Published by the Journalism Students of the Houston Junior College HOUSTON, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1930 COLLEGE INSTRUCTOR OUTLINES COURSE IN PRACTICAL SCIENCE S. L: Bishkin Believes Adults Can Memorize More Readily Than Reason PLAN INSPECTION TRIPS New Course Would Combine Work in Economics With That of Chemistry Adults memorize more easily than they reason, according to S. L. Bishkin, senior member of the science staff at Houston Junior College. For several years there has been a demand tor a course in science that would conform to scientific regulations and technique, that would allow credit toward a degree, and that would —at the same time—be acceptable to people who do not desire a great amount of mathematics or deep scientific research. Such a course is now being worked out. Houston Junior College Administrators Mr. isliki: to 1st lie class inspection and a complete survey of all industries in and around Houston that employ practical chemistry in their daily routine of business. In this way, the members of the class will see and come to l;now practical chemistry in its many phases as employed in modern industry and If, a course such as this is established, Mr. Bishkin points out, it should be very popular with Houston Junior College students who are not contemplating scientific vocations and those who, after several years of absence from school are availing themselves of the opportunity of an arter- working-hours college education. The proposed course would have as its base freshman chemistry, but would be pseudo-scientific, and taught as a combination of economics and practical chemistry. PRESIDENT OF SCHOOL BOARD Judge K. C. Barkley, the president of the School Board of the Houston Independent School District, has given many years for the building up of Houston and recently is devoting pecial effort to the development of the Houston Junior College. STUDENTS PLAN FOR FOOTBALL BANQUET "I challenge the freshman class to sell more tickets than the sophomore class to tbe football dance, Wednesday night, November 26," announced Pete Garrison, president of the Student Association In assembly Wednesday night at Houston junior college. The challenge was made by Bob McCullough, president of the sophomores, and was accepted by Warren Lemmon, president of the freshmen. ''The purpose of this dance," Garrison stated, "is to make money to buy sweaters for the letter men, which will number about fifteen." "The Cougar Collegians are planning a football banquet for December 6, and requested Wednesday night that all students interested in the affair should reserve that date. The time and place of the banquet will be announced later," stated Hazel Taylor, president. » A brightly colored poster, placed in front of the stage in the auditorium, called attention that Monday night would be Junior College night at the Loew's State Theater. Pete Garrison announced that the football team, leading students, and members of the faculty would be introduced from the theater stage. ATTRACTIVE H.J.C.
