Transcript THE C O U OAR GRID MEN DINE AND DANCE AT ANNUAL BANQUET Cougar Warriors and Friends Guests of Pep Club December 6 MANY HUMOROUS TALKS Santa Claus Also Attends and Makes a Hit Giving Souvenirs Putting a glorious end to a rather unsuccessful football campaign, the entire'Cougar squad d'ned Saturday night at College Inn, the occasion being the fourth annual football banquet sponsored by the Cougar Collegians. "Pete" Garrison Presides Among the honor guests were Coach and Mrs. A. W. French, Mrs. E. E. Oberholtzer, F. M. Black, N. K. Dupre, Wallace H. Miner, Mr and Mrs H. W. Harris, and Mrs. John R. Bender. Presiding as master of ceremonies was our own "Pete" Garrison, who fllled that position in pompous style. The food was delicious, the decorations beautiful, the program enjoyable, the after dinner speeches short, the dance a wow, all of which made the event one that will live long In the memory of those who attended. Santa Claus Was Present The tables, which were arranged in the form of a letter "U," were covered with snow-white linen which made a beautiful background for vases of red roses. A sparkling Christmas tree loaded with presents and ornaments greeted the guests as they entered the hall At the tree's base stood old Santa, himself, waving a Graduate of H, J. C. Applies For Admission To N. Y, Bar That graduates of H. J. C. rapidly forge ahead Is attested by the letter received this week irom M. J. Ham- berger who hopes soon to secure admission to the New Yo'rk bar. Mr. Hamberger has written for the necessary records regarding his work while in the college, all of which will count and be considered in his application. He attended Houston Junior College during the session 1927-S8. IT PAYS TO DO YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AT SWEENEY'S Th;s is Sweeney's fifty-fifth Christmas season, and we have marked it with an exceptional offering of fine gifts. Won't you stop in to see for yourself the many distinctive and unusual gifts we are showing at sensible prices? J. Xweeneu Jewelo) lo. *-*,_) 70OMAIN STREET con CAPITOL AVENUE hearty welcome to one and all. Upon arriving, each guest was cordially received by Mrs. John R. Bender. Football heroes are famous for their ability to do justice to good food. The Cougar gridiron warriors proved to be no exceptions. The roast turkey, cranberry sauce and all the other "fixin's" seemed to add greatly to the pleasure of the occasion for them. There is no record of indigestion following the banquet. Wit Follows Food At the close of the meal the after dinner speakers successfully proved that whoever said, "if all the after dinner speakers were lined end to end, it would be a good thing," was all wet. The speeches of Mrs. Bender, Mr. Black, and Mr. Dupre all contained a vita! message to the students- of Junior College and at the "same time were highly interesting, while sarcasm and wit contained in an impromptu debate between Mr. Harris and Mr. French proved - hilarious. "Suit-case" Matthews, the Cougar star end who scored the only touchdown of the season, made a brilliant talk on "Why I Read the Woman's Home Companion." The applause was so tremendous that he was unable to finish. Following the speeches Miss Jane Wi t h e rs p o on sang three popular "blues" numbers, accompanied by Miss Nelwyn Turner. "Little Nap'' Nesmith gave his vocal cords a workout while singing "Mighty Like a Rose." After the "tumult and the shout- ng" ceased Fish Lemmon, acting as a benevolent Santa Claus, distributed 'enirs to the squad and the honor guests. Jack Sykes, star center for the Cougars, was the only one dissatisfied with his gift. He claimed it was "bottled in the barn." Dancing occupied the remainder of the evening. Then there's the case of the hunter who was mistaken for a deer and shot by a friend. "Tell my folks I died game," said he.

COUGAR COLLEGIANS ENJOY ACTIVE YEAR; ORGANIZED IN 1927 Organization Started to Create Enthusiastic Spirit in College Thru Regular Faculty and Student Activities. During the month of October In the tall of 1927, one of our co-eds, Miss Opal Beane, put into action a plan that she had backed with untiring efforts in high school.

Dupree'a permission and the help of two most lovable members of the faculty, our late coach, John E. Bender, whom everyone admired, and Miss Mae Bess Hubrich, who Is now Mrs. A. D, Gibson of New York City, this plan finally began to take the form of an organization. October 31, 1927, a meeting was called for those who were interested In this group. At this meeting the first officers were elected. This pjroup began to work with zeal. A committee was appointed for the purpose of getting more of the girls of tho college Interested.
