Transcript THE COUGAR REVIEW of FOOTBALL SEASON GOOD SPIRIT MANIFESTED DY CODGARS Year's Record Is One Victory, Three Ties, and Four Defeats Cougars Pitted Against Beaumont In Baseball, Track Coming Season Coach John Bender Working Hard With Men; Says Prospects Are Bright For Victory 'Basketball Record, *:'~ 14 Out of 22 Games j By Jack Barker Although it is rather late to talk about football, it is only right that the first football team of Houston Junior College should be given a bit of recognition. With only sixteen men to build an eleven around, Coach Bender turned out a scrappy, peppy bunch of men that played above their own level. Among those present In every game were the following: Jeter, Scarbrough, Bugg, Howell, Aleo, Baines, Sadler, Guseman, Tadlock, C. Jackson, Richards, E. Jackson, G. Sadler, Vallone, Blair, Lawler and Tipton. These boys being an asortment that had played although an assortment that had played every kind of football, were playing real football at the end of the season under the able guidance of Coach Johnnie. Classed as "Comers" A short resume of the season's games will show that although the team were not winners, they were comers. The first game of the season was with the strong San Jacinto Bears. The Junior College Cougars, seeing their first time in action, held the Bears to a 0 to 0 tie. Although the game was several times in danger, the Cougars held on to the scoreless end. The Bears threatended several times to make a touchdown, and the Cougars bucked up enough to threaten the goal once. The next game was out of town. With a few fair co-eds the Cougars journeyed to Huntsville, where they took the short end of a 13-0 score. Tie Game The little town that is called Hous- | ton's playground was the scene of j the following game. St. Mary's Seminary took the Cougars in for a 7-0 score until the last quarter, when with heroic effort and splendid teamwork, Bugg plunged over for a touchdown, and Jeter's toe tied the count. The game was so near a close that no appreciable effort was made to raise the score. The game ended with a 7-7 score. The record stood—two ties and one loss. Playing real football for a whole game, and holding a 7-6 lead for three quarters, the Cougars were nosed out of a win in the last minute of play by a forty yard drop-kick, which raised the score 10-7. Jeff Davis High School won this game, but in a later contest they went down in defeat. Another Tie Huntsville Normal Reserves then came to Houston to give us the chance to get even. Playing on our own gridiron, the final count was 7-7. The Cougars made the first touchdown on straight football, while the Reserves passed for ten yards and a touchdown. The count then stood for the Cougars three ties and two losses. Following closely on this game was a clash with the Heights Bulldogs, who later became city champs. A sixty-five yard run on an intercepted pass by Scarbrogh gave the Cougars fumbles followed with stellar playing on both sides. The Heights aggrega te "Fighting" Cougars are determined to have both a baseball and a track team this spring. Coach Bender is working hard with the boys who have come out but is anxious to have many more of the men in school show up (for practice. Games are to be arranged and meets held with the local high schools and with Beaumont College. Practice is held daily on the San Jacinto field. Coach Comments In an exclusive interview^ to the sports editor, Coach Bender said, "The prospects are excellent." "I have a fine bunch of men," he declared. "I am expecting them to capture a majority of the contests— both in baseball and track meets." The baseball team looks now about as follows: Catcher, Guseman; pitcher, Bilao first base, Vallone; second base, Jeter; third base, Jackson; fielders, B. Sadler, Ellis, Matelak; short stop, Lawler. The men trying out for track are: B. Sadler, Jack Barker, Homer Helton, Bo Martin, Dudley Ellis, Wm. Pollard, Cherault, Wesley Baines, Wallace Blair, Roy Carley, Elliot Flaxman, Guy Savage, Oliver Guesman. Tennis Coach Bender has a tennis team consisting of Homer Ley, Leo Cohn, Bo Martin, Robert Blair and A. D. Burg. All students interested in tennis are requested to report to the San Jacinto courts daily. Swimming Those students desiring to team to swim are requested to meet Coach Bender at the pool at 5 daily. tion took home the bacon for an 18-7 count. A Loss The next game—and boy, what a game! It was the struggle between the Rice Freshmen and Houston Cougars. It was on a grassy field, after a recent rain, and it was like playing on ice! Rice students talked to the Freshmen before the game and told them that if they didn't win by seven touchdowns, all would be lost. The poor Freshmen missed one licking. They won by a 45-0 score. Phooey. Wot a game! Victory! The only win of the season followed this game. Taking on the light St. Thoma3 team, the Cougars won by one point, 20-19. This game was full of thrills, fumbles and what have you? It was a game that will never be forgotten. The Cougars piled up a big lead before Billy Garrett woke up, and then he showed them all his heels. Billy nearly won the game by I himself. And thus endeth a hectic season! Studies were resumed, aches were forgotten, and some other field of interest was taken up. We do prophesy, though, that the Houston Junior College Cougars will not lose a game next year. The usual lineup was as follows: R. E.—B. Sadler R. E.—Baines R. T.—C. Jackson C.—E. Jackson L. T.—Guseman L. G.—Richards L. E.—Tadlock Q.—Jeter L. H.—Scarbrough R. H.—Howell F. B.—Bugg Subs.: Aleo, Lawler, Vallone, G. Sadler, Blair, and Tipton.

The meal consisted of bacon and eggs, French rolls and coffee. Breakfast was served before a roaring fire in the open hearth provided at the park. A portable victrola added to the gaiety of the morning which was lovely enough to repay any who may have had some slight compunction at having had to arise at such an early hour, Fleur de lis place cards bore the names of the Mesdemoiselles Wilson, Qualtrough, Basquez, Newton, Pickett, Batte, Hitchcock, Watford, Braman, Jones, Huberich, Topman, and Messieurs Lawler, Stone, Yeagar, Pollard, Christie, and Helton. Tommie Reid—Say, give me a pound of dog meat and make it good, the last time I got it here it made my old man sick. The fighting Cougars turned in fourteen victories out of a series of twenty-two basket ball games played and thus rendered a good account of themselves in their first season in this sport.
