PULL TOGETHER By Hope McCutcheon If the 500 Junior College students co-operate with the Houston Elks Club it will be possible for this institution to add $1500 to the student loan fund. And what cause could be more worthy than that of aiding students to work their way through this institution? Through your help many students will be able to receive a college education. This opportunity would be closed to them but for this one possibility— the student loan fund. All that you have to do is sell as many tickets as you can to the Elks Charity Entertainment, the Maid of Manalay, which will be presented November 8-9 and 10 at the City Auditorium. Each reserved ticket will be sold for SI, and the buyer has an opportunity to exchange it for two 50 cent tickets or four 25 cent tickets. Without any obligation whatever, 50 cents from every $1 ticket sold for'the November 8 performance will be given to the Houston Junior College Student Loan Fund. The college has another opportunity, however. The college can sell 1500 $1 tickets, which cannot be exchanged for any other tickets, but they can be split three ways. Fifty cents will go to the Elks, 25 cents to the junior college, and 25 cents will go to the person selling the ticket to be paid on his tuition. It is possible for the loan fund to receive $1500 out of this proposition, and students, it is your duty to get this money for the college. Talk this entertainment up, urge your friends to attend, for it is absolutely necessary to make this ticket selling campaign a success—eat it, sleep it, and talk it. SPEEDERS According to the law of averages there should have been several fatal accidents among Juniors College speeders. Let us look for a moment at the facts concerning this habit. Approximately one-third of the students at school come in their automobiles. Out of this number there are numerous ones who take it upon themselves to display their driving ability to their fellow students. These are the ones who drive "Hell-bound" around the curves of the driveways, disregarding other cars and people. There are several possible results of this careless driving. The driver can crash into another car, into some unlucky pedestrian or into both. He is therefore endangering both life and property when he commits himself to speeding. It may seem to to the speeder as though his display of daring is entertaining to his associates. But he should realize that it takes no particular talent to drive an automobile carelessly and that his best efforts do not bring a great amount of admiration. The time has come for this practice to stop. Let everyone take it upon himself to act as a factor in halting such nonsense. It is your duty to help procure safety around your school. DONATIONS A sure-fire method of donating automotive accessories can best be accomplished by parking around the Junior College during the m Without "a doubt this system is at its best when the automobile is an open model, yet the sedan is by no means immune. Let us look for a minute at the articles that can be taken from our cars We find that a favorite object of removal is the spare tire Of course, the badly worn spare meets with little approval, but'just try leaving a fairly new one within sight and well wager it will be gone within two weeks. Other articles which are often missed include mirror clocks, radiator caps, complete sets of tools, horns, and gasoline. , .. ,- . The installment of flood lights on the campus has failed to improve matters. Our vehicles continue to be stripped of their accessories and drained of their gasoline. What this school needs is a policeman to patrol the immediate vicinity where students are forced to park their cars We believe this action would do more to halt thefts than any other move that could be made. Certainly it deserves a trial after all other attempts have failed to bring results. " SCHOOL ANNUAL For the first time since the founding of our college the question of a year book or annual has arisen. This issue, deserves the sincere interest of every student at this school. Let us look for a moment at the benefits of this type of publication Probably the most important of these is its ability to serve as a permanent record of school activities. It is unquestionably This here ticket sale is a mighty good thing, and it sure is for a worthy purpose. The Junior Sol lege students should he able to put it over in great style. "Lone Wolf" Birney wants to work alone on this ticket selling business. He sure will have to be good to put it over, but everybody thinks they're good these days. Even at that the Lone Wolf isn't so dumb. Having been a newspaper man he knows the woman angle of anything always gets the attention so he takes 10 girls and challenges the whole school. With the personality of all the 10 members they should be able to sell ice to an Eskimo. They ain't no use worrin' folks. Here is a mighty clever little piece somebody "did" on that subject. It follows: "There are only two reasons for worry. Either you're successful or you're not successful. And if you're successful, there's nothing to worry about. If you're NOT SUCCESSFUL there's only ,iwo things to worry about—your health is either good—or you're sick. And if your health is good, THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, and if you're sick—there's only two things to worry bout. You're either going to get well t you're going to die. You're going to get well—there's nothing to worry about—and if you're NOT going to only two things to worry about. You're either going to HEAVEN, or you're NOT going to Heaven—and if you're ig to Heaven there's nothing to worry about, and if you're GOING TO THE OTHER PLACE you'll be so doggone busy shaking hands with old friends—you won't have time to worry. —So, yea man, why worry?" NOTES ON THE PI BETA DANCE Honoring their Texas University members, the Alpha chapter of the Pi Beta Fraternity entertained their visiting brothers with a dinner-dance Saturday night following the Rice- Texas game. It was a gala occasion for the Pi Beta's who spent the entire day together celebrating the football holiday. Visiting members were Milford Smith, Charles Buse, Marion Adams and Gordon Jones, all Alumni of H. J. C. The Texas students had a double reason for lebrating in view of the game and, celebrate they did, with the dance going 'till the early hours of the morning. Hamp Robinson took charge of the entertainment and to him goes much iredit for the success. The ballroom was elaborately deco- ated and dinner was served in nighi :lub style with the Hub Mancias orchestra furnishing the music for the ight. The supper started promptly a and the Pi Beta's lost no time in getting things started. Hamp had his "world if his own," Mary Bradley Anderson, o he gigoloed for all he was worth. John Hill, Donald Aitken, Joe Patterson and Jules DeLambre had the s and stagged the affair. Jim Brink- ley made quite a hit with the Texas girls and left with a smile of antici- ition on his face. Kitty Hurlock had her strut down it. Why did she leave early with her date? Janet "Shorty"' Simpson was a center of attraction and had a big rush all the time. Janet and Anne Scharen- berg, both San Jac debutantes, divided anors as the best dancers. Charles Buse, the boy with the jig step, truly got hot and made that floor burn up. A rival orchestra tried to start a little trouble with Melcher so he called Julian and every thing was kayed. Did Melcher sweat? HUMOR s a good thing the poor Indians i no inclinations to go on the war path these days. Think of the detours they would have to make. Marriage is the part of a girl's life at comes between the lipstick and the broomstick. There are so many college men out if work that it is rapidly becoming the well-bred line. John Burk Hill (arrested for speed- ig): "But, your honor, I am a college boy." Judge: "Ignorance doesn't excuse anybody." Kitty Hurlock: "You remind me of le ocean." Mack Douglas: "Wild, romantic, rest- Kitty: "No, you just make me sick." This chemistry is such a bore, I think that German's worse- Why did I ever let those fees Depreciate my purse? Reo King (witnesses tug of war for the first time): "Wouldn't it be simpler for them to get a knife and cut it?" Ray Pell: "Can you restore my hair?" Barber: "Well, hardly, but how about nice simonizing job?" 'No, but I got a Ca- Thc bridle path leads to the bridal ] the park often quarter?" Jesse Darling: nadian dime." Richard McFee: "There's a bright girl* She's getting a man's wages." Raymond Dupre: "That so? I didn't even think she was married." Leroy Melcher (on phone): "May I speak with Lucille?" Voice on Phone: "She has gone to Chicago." Leroy: "When do you expect her back?" Voice: "About June." Leroy: "My gosh, I've been stood i Joe Patterson; "Are these eggs fresh?" Jules Delambre: "Sure, they're just in from the country." Joe: "Yeah, but what country?" Hubby (to wife): "I've made up my mind to stay home tonight." Wife: "Oh, have you? Well, I've already made up my face to go out." Pat Foley: "Well, ol' top, new car?" Bill Stephens: "Nope! Ol' car, new He was seated in the parlor And he said unto the light, Either you or I, old fellow, Will be turned down tonight. Adolph M.: "Does he love her?" Milton Gregory: "Does he? He is so mushy about that girl he writes to her Do you have a Latin witn a soft lead pencil." true that in years to come, present students of the Junior College would find such a record of their school life to be invaluable to them. In thisJ respect an annual merits consideration. Contrasting an annual publication with the frequent newspaper, we find that again the year-book is to be desired. Whereas the newspaper is based primarily on current news and activities, the annual uses the element of permanency in its review of a complete year. We should consider the costs of such a book before forming an opinion. In view of the fact that these costs are not prohibitive, we must now admit that an annual is not an impossibility. Until it is definitely decided whether or not the annual will be published, it is the duty of the student body to lend its wholehearted support to this movement. Its success depends on you! ■'"■■■'■'■i ' ll'lilt Stop Me If You Have Heard These By MILTON GREGORY It is calculated that when you step into your bathtub, you are running a thousand times more risk of injury than you do when you board a railroad train, and two hundred times more risk of accident than you do when you climb into a licensed airplane. Travelers in Pullman cars are now being offered "radio pillows" containing miniature broadcast receivers that enable them to tune in without disturbing their fellow, passengers. In the six-day bicycle races, each man travels from 2300 to 2400 miles— and gains weight, too. An expert lumberjack can climb up a tree, cut out the top, and slither back down to earth in eight minutes. Try that sometime on a 150-foot fir. A meteorite can fall from the moon to the earth in two hours and a half. If you don't believe it, time one sometime. Even a grain of sand traveling at this speed would kill a human being if it hit in a vital spot. A microscope has been constructed that will magnify 9000 times. Heretofore, the limit has been about 1500 diemeters. Something seen only with this very high magnification can be compared to a single hair as a flea is to a circus tent. You can take out almost any form of insurance you want (if you have anything to insure). Six American couples, last year, took out insurance against twins, and anyone can be protected against an airplane falling through his roof. On the bond board of the New York Exchange is listed an issue of railroad bonds of $50,000,000 due for payment in the year 2361. These bonds must be paid for by folk more distant from us in time than we are from the death year of Christopher Columbus. Stunt men in Hollywood who double for the high-priced actors are notoriously underpaid. Often they risk their lives for as little as $25. The best pay ever received was $350. All this man had to do was turn over a racing auto while it was going 65 miles an hour. It now costs 9-3 per cent less to live, if you call this living. Why do the Army and the Navy forbid their pilots going up without a parachute, and yet none of the passenger transport companies furnish them? The Army can't be wrong all the time. Cellophane was invented in 1908, and by a Frenchman at that. The odds are only 7000 to 1 against a person being struck by lightning during his life. At 5 a. m. on September 22, during the war, Private Jones has just been relieved as sentinel by his comrade. He became engaged in a conversation with his commander, Captain Smith. Just"as he left, he said, "Well, sir, last night I dreamed that we weren't going to win this war, and my dreams always seem to come true. "Nonsense," replied the captain, "we've got to win and we've got to believe that we shall win. For once you're wrong." The captain, who was in a hurry to leave on his furlough, then dismissed the private. When he returned from his leave several days later, however, he had Private Jones court-martialed. Why was Private Jones court-martialed? Harold Renfro: "And now, how about this dance that we are to give, do we want it to be a formal?" Jimmie B.: "Oh, no, let's wear our own clothes." The duck was very much surprised when he found that his first pair of pants were down. O. E: Boulet: "Gee, I had a swell job this summer." Bill Goggan: "I was a life guard too." ■ ■ » Ralph Mouret: "Wanna spoon?" Lou Gaines: "Sure." So he gave her one, and she ate her soup. * * * Depperman: "Hasn't she a muddy complexion?" Kellogg: "You bet! It's slippery when she cries."
