Transcript THE COUGAR PUBLISHED BY THE JOURNALISM STUDENTS OF THE HOUSTON JUNIOR COLLEGE HOUSTON, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1932 Students Make Soph Ball Big Occasion Last Minute Bid-Buyers Come to Rescue and Assure Financial Success to Sponsors The fourth annual Sophomore Ball was held Friday night at the Houston Club. The hours were from 10 'till 2. A hundred couples enjoyed dancing to the strains of the matchless music of Lee's Owls. In the beautiful array of evening gowns and tuxedos, the students of Junior College and their friends enjoyed a atmosphere of congeniality and good fellowship. The dance was given at an opportune time —it served as a let-up on the hectic six-weeks tests. Due to the so-called depression it was feared that the financial end of the dance might cause some difficulty, but due to the shrewd management of chairman of the dance committee, Fred Aebi, the dance paid for itself, and proved to be the highlight of the social season. Many former students and graduates as well as many outsiders were present to add their bit to making the dance a success. The novel arrangements of "Minnie the Moocher," and "Oh! Monah" lent variety to the entertainment. President Jim Bertrand issued the " following statement regarding attendance: "The Sophomore Class wishes to ■ thank every person who attended their dance for helping in making it a success. Particularly, we extend a vote of appreciation to those who workeo' - with us in planning the affair and the faculty who was behind us in our Besides Bertrand, those serving on the dance committee were Fred Aebi, chairman; O. D. Brown, Marion Adams, and H. Warren Lemmon. Other officers of the sophomore class and the sophomore council assisted the committee in making arrangements for the dance. The dance committee highly commended A. W. French, class sponsor, for his tireless efforts and other courtesies extended to the sophomore class. STUDENTS WRITE COLLEGE MELODY Two loyal and ambitious students, had their school at heart, it seems, and Bernice Branum and Gordon Jones. composed a song "For H, J. C." Gordon wrote the words, and Bernice originated the music, and take it from a cub reporter, its original. It was impossible for us to print the music to the song in this issue of the Cougar because we didn't get wind of the song until the day we went to press, but we are printing the words to it so that you may learn it before the next assembly. At that time, Bernice will teach you the music. With people starting to write songs, with snow falling in Houston, and with Mr. French corning to school without his spats, it looks like the tide is turning. Learn the song, and then something will turn. Former Students of H. J. C. Joined in Bonds of Wedlock Miss Maurine Edminster, daughter » of Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Edminster, and R. Terry Russ, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Russ, were married at high noon Saturday at the Church of the Redeemer. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Kathryn Edminster; Leon Johnson was best man. The bride wore a traveling suit of bright navy blue trimmed in gray silver fox fur with gray accessories. The maid of honor wore a rose biege outfit and carried a bouquet of orange rosebuds. The bride and groom were former students of H. J. C; in fact, the romance started in this dear old school. FACULTY CLUB HONORED AT OBERHOLTZER PARTY Mrs. E. E. Oberholtzer, honorary chairman of the Faculty Club, entertained the club members with a bridge and tea at her home recently. In the early part of the afternoon the guests enjoyed several rubbers of bridge and later other members arriv- . ed for tea. There was a beautifully appointed tea table decorated in pink and green colors. Refreshments were in harmony to carry out the color • scheme. The next meeting of the Faculty Club will be held Saturday, March 19, when Mrs. E. W. Schuhman will enter- ' tain. She will be assisted by Mrs. H. W. Harris, Mrs. L. T. Hooker, and Miss Dorothy Mackey. Music by Bernice Branum NOMAD CLUB TO HOLD DANCE AT END 0' MAIN On April 20, the Nomad Club will hold a dance at tiie End C: Main dative hall to which all Junior college students are cordially invited. Paul Gilliam, sole member of the club who attends Junior college gave out this information Tuesday. A good time will be had by all, he stated, and the dancing will last from 9 'til 12. Incidentally, Curtis Smith and his boys will oblige with the music. ACTORS JOURNEY 300 BOLES TO COMPETE IN CONTEST Five members of the Houston Junior College dramatic class under the supervision of Mrs. L. T. Hooker, journeyed to Hillsboro last week-end to enter competition in the one-act play contest held there. Those who made the trip, besides Mrs. Hooker are: Evelyn Cochran, Louis Higginbotham, Jennie Jo Bent- ley, Milford Smith, and Harold Bell Renfro. The title of the play presented by the H. J. C. students was, "The Lord's Prayer." All members of the cast enjoyed their trip and stated their appreciation for the guidance of such an able director as Mrs. Hooker- Evelyn Cochran, who took the lead as Mile. Rose, was highly commended by all the judges for her excellent portrayal. The winner of the contest has not yet been determined, but the schools that are in the finals are Plainview, Wichita Falls, John Tarleton, and Jacksonville. Members of the cast from Houston left here Thursday morning and arrived at their destination that night. The drawings were held Friday morning and, unfortunately, the junior college entrants drew second place. After presenting their play, the H. J. C. representatives viewed the other plays until late Friday afternoon when they left for Houston. The party incurred a sleet and snow storm on their return trip, but braved the unfavorable weather conditions with hopes of returning to Houston time to attend the Sophomore Dance- However, the climatic conditions prevented them from doing so. MALE PUPILS FORM PLAYBOY'SOCIETY With the social activities of Junior College threatening to become nil and void, a group of the male members of the student body have organized an exclusive club by the name of Playboys, that will take it in their own hands to get something started in "outside school affairs." The initial meeting of the Playboys was held at San Jacinto last Wednesday afternoon, and little time was lost in boosting the Sophomore Prom. The club members deemed the Soph dance more important than the election of their officers and spent majority of the meeting discussing ways to help in getting the students to attend the hop. But with the finish of this discussion, the Playboys got down to business and elected the following officers: President, John Hill; business manager, "Windy" Smith; secretary-treasurer, "Hamp" Robinson. After much discussion, the name Playboys was decided upon in preference to several age-old fraternity names. A number of by-laws were voted on among which feature the rule that the president must be a sophomore and majority of the members also be sophomores. Other discussions centered around membership quota, membership selection and plans for "something different" to be given soon. According to president Hill, in the near future the members will be attired in blue sweaters with a mono- gramed PLAYBOYS on the front. He also stated that the members favored the idea of having a club outfit to be worn by the members at the club functions. "Spring is here—now's the time to fall in love.". We have gathered as much judging from the many couples exchanging painful glances while walking arm in arm up and down the corridors of H. J. C. F. C. BOLTON SPEAKS TO H.J.C. ASSEMBLY Urges Careful Selection of Life's Work Drives Two Hundred Miles to Address Collegians What qualifications do you possess?" was one of the questions F. C. Bolton, Dean of Engineering of A. and M. College asked students of Houston Junior College, when he spoke to the assembly Wednesday, March 9, 7:30 p. m. "We should first find out what qualities we possess, then use them to the best advantage," Mr. Bolton said. "If an engineer builds a structure, he first finds out the purpose of the building, then finds out what materials are available. If the building of a bridge is that important, then the building of a human life is much more important," stated the professor. Students of the Houston Junior Col- "What do we want to make of our- lege will be offered two distinct terms I selves?" That is the purpose of our FOR H. J. C. Stand up! and cheer for H. J. C; Shout her praises high. Stand up and pledge your loyalty; Never let your spirits die. Ours is a school of which we are proud: Her honor we'll always defend. Come and join in with the crowd And we'll be true to the end. Our guiding star, Fair Play shall be, To Victory lay our claim. Stand up and fight for H. J. C. And reverence her name. Words by A. Gordon Jones of study the sixth annual summer session, according to an announcement by Assistant Dean N. K. Dupre. This action was brought about by the desire of many students to make additional credits to the work of the first summer term. Two courses may be taken each term. Several new courses are included in the program f~r the summer. Out- ;tanding among these Is the course in German to be offered. This language will be taught by Mr. Schumann. "It is no longer necessary for students and educators to leave the city for their summer study," Mr. Dupi Cougar Collegians Plan To Honor Both Quintets Plans for a banquet honoring members of both the boys and girls basket ball team were made at a luncheon given at Phoenix Furniture Company, 303 Main, Tuesday, from 12 to 3 p. m., for the Cougar Collegians. The club has not yet decided a definite date for the banquet, but according to Mrs. Bender, it may be given in the School r-afeteria. The outcome of the recent election was as follows: President, Florine Davis; vice-president, Pat Lesher; secretary, Betty Covington; treasurer, Elizabeth Kerbow; reporter, Allyne Allen. Warren Lemmon seems to be giving Marian Robinson the rush-act. Who would have thought that the irresistible Mr. Lemmon would have settled down so soon? But after taking a look at Marian, we can't blame him. SUMMER SCHOOL PLANS COMPLETED BY DUPRE structure. We all want to make good citizens of ourselves. We want to b« loyal to the nation and to the Democratic ideals. We owe our loyalty to the universe that is part of the human race. We also ov^e loyalty to our families, but the most important of all is our loyalty to ourselves," he stated. Mr. Bolton was introduced to the students by Mr. Herrington, who stated that Mr. Bolton hpd not long been head of the Electrical Department, until he was made Dean of Engineering. 'College students are not all quite stated. "Although our school is still 'honest in their work," continued Bol in its infancy, it is already helping Houston teachers to secure additional teaching credits." Several of the summer courses will be designed to meet the needs of teachers although other students will be allowed to enroll in these subjects. Other courses will include the regular curriculum offered in the fall and spring sessions. Applicants may register June 1 and 2. Late registrations, accompanied by the regular fee, will be accepted June 3 through 8. No registration for credit may be made after that date. Further information and detailed programs may be obtained in the Houston Junior College administration office. Student Escape Has Narrow in Explosion Walter Garrett, Junior College student, narrowly escaped serious injury Friday, March 11, at the Sanitary Appliance Company, when a section of a tar vat exploded, throwing a stream of boiling tar upon Garrett. While repairing the vat, a workman lighted the burners under the vat. When Garrett attempted to leave the section, after a warning that the tar was hot, he was struck by the stream of boiling tar. Following the accident, Garrett was rushed to the Park View hospital, where his injuries were dressed. He states that he figures that he was pretty thoroughly tarred. At present he has a large bandage about his neck, covering the burns, but expects to be fully recovered soon. "I talked to a boy the other day, who was ready to quit college, after his 4th year. He had been informed by teachers that he was unprepared to carry on the work that was given him. This boy had been depending on someone else to do his work. He had no foundation for the work that was put before him. That is the downfall of most of us. We like to see somebody else do the thing we are supposed to do." "College not only prepares you for your life's work, but also prepares you in the matter of judgment, and initiative." Mr. Bolton produced a chart showing the ranking of college scholarships for the year 1931 with those of previous years. "The boy who said, TH make my job the first thing, and the activities the next, is the boy that will get ahead in life," Mr. Bolton concluded. NOTICE! All assessments were due last Friday and must be paid this week to Mr. South. N. K. Dupre. SCHOOL OFFICES MOVF.D FROM INSURANCE BLDG. Administrative offices of the public schools, formerly located on the sixth floor of the Great Southern Life Insurance Building, were moved March 15 to the Taylor School building, Louisiana at Bell. Taylor School, formerly an elementary school, is now the center of the vocational work conducted by the city schools as well as the location of the administrative offices. "Reduced funds for the local schools have forced us to move the central offices from the former location into the Taylor School building," Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer, superintendent of schools, stated Wednesday. "I believe that this will prove a very satisfactory location for these offices, however, due to its central location." The entire main floor of the school building has been remodeled to provide suitable space for the various offices to be housed in this structure. *"
