Do you realize that while working, you may go to Dlgbl school and do two years' work which Ih recognized In any standard college? It iM the purpose of this college to make available to the many who might not otherwise have the advantages of college training, two years of standard college work; to Bnable students who complete high school too young lo be went away to school j in iisivi- two years of college training at borne, under home Influences; to enable adults who have not had KB opportunity i>t attending college In earlier yours to do so at home, with little Interference in their o very-day affairs; to give teachers In the public schools an opportunity to complete professional rc<iulrciuotHs. Houston Junior College often to Houston and vicinity an Institution which eerrei to the best advantage tin- needs of Its ottuwus By conducting classes at night. It offers a unioiic Opportunity afforded by no other college In the state. The business man or woman may solert any course, or number of courses, that will help Ihi'm In their chosen professions Last year's record shows that the average nge ot stud mils :ii t inil iui; Junior Colletc was 111 yean. There were 637 students, 69 per cent of whom were graduates ot Houston high schools; :!.'! per oenl w< ates of other schools, and 10 per cent were admitted by special arrangement, or this number, 35 per cent would not have gone to school had It not been for Junior College. The record shows further than 51 per cent of the students were fully self-supporting, and Unit 17 per cent were earning part of their expenses. Residents of Housion made up K7 per cent of the student body, the other 1.1 per cent coming from nearby schools. A choice of vocation was made by 72 per eetii of tbe students enrolled who answered a questionnaire, thus Indicating that nearly three-fotirlhs or the «:i7 students have already decided ■Son their life profession. Aist. Dean of H. J. C. NOTED PROFS GIVE INTERVIEWS AN EN T COLLEGE'S PROGRESS Our Friendly Spirit One of the most striking features. of the Houston Junior College is the! good fellowship and altogether friend-: ly co-operation between the faculty and the student body. Those who have attended other colleges are the first to notice this, for in most colleges the classes are carried on in a much more formal and Impersonal manner, and a weak student who would profit much by encouraging individual instruction finds himself lost In the maze of (he scholastic machinery: also, only a few of the faculty deign to speak to their students outside of class. The kindly encouragement and individual attention shown by our faculty to the students should be appreciated above everything else. Again, outside of class, our faculty members may almost always be found sprinkled among the students wherever they »re needed, giving friendly advice and counsel. The students show their appreciation In various ways. Many of them work harder on their lessons than they would otherwise, to show their appreciation for the friendly encouragement they receive, and among no group of students are the faculty -criticised less than at our Junior Col- WITH MR. HARRIS: "The Junior College is Eflllag ■ place In Houston thai no other in.ii iui could rill.' said Mr. Harris, tn- traetor In English and Pnblk speak- n ■■ ui ly. "The Junior College tuu bet one a definite part ol email- i-4.iii ediniilinn The presence Of a junior college in ;i i-imimiinlty means Increased educational opportunities to many who, otherwise, would not have the privilege "f attending a college. "1 believe in Junior College, In the Junior College of tomorrow. 1 believe that It will become one of the most Import Institutions of south Trx- kl " Mi. Harris went on to say in that enthusiastic way that tuu made him so popular with students in Junior College. Mr. Harris came to ibis school from ' the University of Testis, whore he was | a member or the faculty. He received his MA degree rrom Texas Unlver. -n;. in 19*7, end la now completing work on hi- Ph.D. from the same school Mr. Harris gradaatfld from North Texas Stale Teachers' College hi I'M 7, and leceli ■ Iroui llaylor University In 1920. As a student he had [he special training ■ ■ I | ortunities offered lo men in the A K. K overseas. Mr. Harris has just returned rrom the meeting of the Texas AgaooMtttoa or Colleges at Waco. He found, there, that people all over the state are Interested fn the junior college, and that (he Houston Junior College ranks among the foremost. Mr, Hun-is thinks (hat the junior college In general provides a very ef- riolenl type of education for boys and girls in their early years of college training, and (hut the junior college Is doing a more serviceable type of Instruction tor the freshmen and sophomore years than do the senior colleges. This Is evidenced by the In. creased number of high school graduates entering the Junior colleges every year. "Many of these students graduate from their schools at an early age." Mr. Harris states. "We also find that there are many who adapt themselves very slowly to the strange program of the senior colleges. To the junior college, then, falls the duty and the privilege of guiding these young men and women wisely, training them in proper habits of thinking, taking an interest In their Individual abilities and welfare. The efficiency of an Institution should not be dependent upon the number It eliminates, but upon its ability to Inspire, to arouse ambition, and to stimulate the hoy or : girl to discover himself, his powers, his possibilities, and to create In him a desire to be a little more or a man, to do the greatest, the grandest, and the best things possible." Mr vYgllnee H, Miner. Instructor In History, is one of the most interesting personalities in (he faculty. He ha Ungbl In the Union Normal School and the Union Theological School In Foochow, China. Kor a time he gave lectures In Junior College on Chinese Art and Culture. The course was later discontinued, be- • ry few universities gave credit for It. Mr Miner has an M.A. degree from Columbia University, and has completed all residence requirements on i Bis Ph. I). He has been an Instructor In History ;" BC, J C, since the col-! lege opened. He has taken an interest In all that Junior College has done, and has cooperated in all student activities. I WITH MR. DUPRE: ! "I feel that this year has been In every respect the best year of our Houston Junior College," said Mr. Dupre, assistant dean, in a recent Interview. "The students have taken a greater Interest In malting the name (i, our school stand out. They have hern more active socially as well as more active In an academic way. "We have had a very fine school from a disciplinary point of view. I do not believe that I have ever been connected wiiii an Institution, whether day or night, in which the oondnct of the young men and women wan n bat miilng to the good name or Die school thiin that good spirit of Mir pluy and good will that has been ■hOWn lliionnlnnit this whole year. My work has been made easier, and this year superior to other years, because of the spirit ot co-operation thai Hie students hav.- shown '" Mr. Dupre uttribut s the success i f this year to the [act that (he college has had quit* m lew more full- time students than before. These stu- denta have had the Interest of the i li.. more nt heart. "These students are, for the most irt. recent graduates from our high this dance was one of the biggest successes or the social season. There were two other dances at the University Club, one a Christmas dance, and the other a Spring Sport dance, that were first-clasB dances. On May 9, 1930, the third annual high school-college reception and dance was given In the new gym. Several thousand students attend this dance every year. Each high school and junior college selects the most beautirul and most popu'ar girl, and the twelve girls are presented at this dance. One'girl is chosen from the ten high school girls to be "queen" ot the evening. Tbe (wo junior col lege girls are not included in the voting as they are hostesses. The affairs are properly chapsroned by the school's faculty and officers. All of the Htudents participate in the activities and In lha( way they are always huge successes.

Of course, little petty grievances crop up now and then, but these are soon smoothed over, forgotten, and tbe student body of the Houston Junior College stands one and all as a booster for their splendid faculty.

It has given careful consideration to its choice or faculty members.

Our first dance was given ftboal two weeks after school started in September. It was informal, given in the gym. and Col'egians Dance Orchestra turnished the peppy music. This dance was a huge success, and everyone had a grand time. After the football season, a dance honoring the football boys was given at the University Club. High school members were also entitled to atteud. With the money made from this dance the school bought sweaters for the football players. Several days before the students were dismissed for the Christmas holidays another successful dance was given in the school gym. On January 3, 1930. the freshman class gave a formal ball at the River intil 2. peration on the part of the student body that the vote for the most popular girl on the campus should go to Miss Mildred Smith, one of our faithful freshmen, of whom we will expect much next year.
