Transcript THE COUGAR THREE MODERN EDUCATION— (Continued from Page 1) nity of having such a widely known educator address Junior College. Doctor Strayer reminded the assembly of the new system of graduating students being inaugurated at Chicago University, In which the student's ability and application determine the length of his stay in college. There is no chance for distinction in the business world without unusual preparation, and modern education is following that trend. No field offers more opportunities than education for the well-trained supervisor. "Modern business expects two things of the young hopeful," said Doctor Strayer. "First, he must have a liberal education. He must reach a degree of freedom of thought and ability to work. His mind must be free from superstition and tradition. Education should put a good set of tools in his hands. "Second, he must have special professional training. While in college he must make a choice of what will be his life business, and arrange his courses accordingly. The success of young people will be measured thus: Do you know where you are going? Have you a clear-cut objective? Are you willing to pay the price of hard work ?" Love of a life of ease will not win, thinks Doctor Strayer. Success is not a question of how much money you have but how much satisfaction you get out of your work. A person who is persistent, who is willing to sacrifice, and who has an ambition and purpose will come out ahead in satisfaction and success. "Take time to make up your mind where you are going," said Doctor Strayer in closing his speech, "and then have the nerve and grit to stick to It until you arrive." Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer, president of Junior College, introduced the speaker. On the stage with Doctor Oberholtzer and Doctor Strayer were Judge K. C. Barkley, president of the school board. Assistant Dean N. K, Dupre, and the instructors of the college. Miss Virginia Williams and Herman Shoss entertained with two violin and piano duets. ORATORS— (Continued from Page 1) Sam Houston High School, acted as judges during the trial meet. The subject for debate was: "Resolved, that a substitute for trial by jury should be adopted." The judges selected for first place Milford Smith who spoke for the affirmative. The others who were selected for the first team spoke for the negative. Harvey Richards and Jo Ed Winfree tied for second honors. Aaron Taplck ranked third and Albert Gordon Jones fourth in the try- arn Mix assistants in the library. "Usual forms of student activities are sponsored and social activities are not neglected. Athletics, although handicapped, are important. "The Cougar," student publication, is a strong link in the school life." Houston Junior College began its first regular session September 19, 1927. Since then it has become twice as large as any other junior college in the state, more than doubling its original enrollment. The Houston school board plans to construct an, adequate building as soon as possible/ -"The West Texas Chamber of Commerce proposed a meeting of the Texas Association of Colleges to discuss the advisability of enacting a state law requiring thy public to sup. port junior colleges by districts," according to Miss Scott's feature Others who tried out for the team were R. Willard Nesmith, Hyman Slomovitz, Fred Collins, Thomas Wyatt, and Kenneth Phillips. Following the trials Coach Johnson gave some valuable criticism to each !At0ry debater. His high school team, conigl--^. posed ot L. E. Jones and Gene I^t^fll^Ti'''™^!?^8™1*1 mer, gave an impromptu debate on the subject of trial by jury. Several debaters who were unable to be present Monday night have arranged with Coach Harris to try out at some future date. The exact date for the Texas University debate has not been set. Two of the ranking debaters of H. J. C. will hold a practice meet with the Sam Houston team this week. Coach Harris plans to enter a girls' team in the debating field this year, were PROGRESS— (Continued from Page 1) enrolled in medicine, engineering, chemistry and law; Junior College has expanded greatly," said Miss Scott. "An increased faculty, improved equipment, and more courses are the result." The second year of its career it was fully recognized. Now its credits are transferable to all other Texas colleges.
