Transcript PAGE FOUR THE COUGAR OUR SPORTING WORLD STUDENTS WILL ASSIST FRENCH IN ATHLETICS ' Students in the P. T. classes s to aid Coach French in the athlet; of the school this year. This method is being adopted this year so that those interested will get some practical experience in coaching. 'fh« sports in which they will be of assistance to the coach are football, swimming, basketball, volley ball, boxing, and track. Managing the football team is Jimmie Oliver, who attended Junior College in "30-31" and starred in that sport. Oliver is also helping Mr. French in the P. T. classes and with the coaching of the team. Other sub- coaches will be selected for football as soon as Coach French has had time to look over his boys. Coach French sees in the squad some good material for the coaching of the club teams that he hopes will materialize. Volley ball and basket ball will be coached by Mr. French with < sistant for each sport. These sports will not be stressed until football spend more time with the other sports. The aids in volley ball a basket ball have not been selected. Harold Renfro will probably have charge of boxing, while Coach French will keep an eye on the boxer's methods of training. With better apparatus and training facilities, Mr. French expects a greater popularity for boxing this year. Arrangements have not been made for track as the season is not far enough advanced. The college has prospects of some good material for the cinder path, however. Fred Aebi and Elmer Hamilton will coach the swimming team. Coach French wishes to have all those interested in this sport to practice all winter under the direction of Hamilton and Aebi. Tennis this year will be handled for both boys and girls by Miss Spiess, instructor of girls' athletics. ENTHUSIASM SHOWN TO VARIOUS CARDED SPORT ACTIVITIES RICE BOOSTERS That me H. J. C. students are one hundred per cent behind Rice Institute in their fight for conference laurels was evident from the way they flocked to the rally on Friday night and the game on Saturday. Junior College turned out en masse for the Rice-Texas encounter and yelled their heads off for the Owl aggregation. CLUB WORK Bud Steeger, Humble Co. tennis star, is trying to stir up a little enthusiasm for a schol golf tournament and for the organization of a J. C. golf club. John Hill boasts quite a reputation i member of the golfing world and has offered to help Steeger in getting the club started. Though their games are not of championship caliber, both boys consistently turn in scores in the low nineties. Steeger plays a well rounded game, using his woods and irons with equal merit, while Hill is noted for his long drives. STARKS GREEN .This may be a little early prediction but Starks Green looks like a first class gridiron artist, with his line plunging a constant threat. Green played guard for two years at John Tarleton Junior College and because of his powerful leg drive has been shifted to fullback by Coach French. And so it is with expectancy that we give Starks Green the name of the "Tarleton Tornado." NEW METHOD With the exception of football and basketball, all sports that the school go in for will be organized in a club form. This does not mean that they will be clubs with members, rules, dues etc., but those interested will work together for tournaments, games and to get a little interest started. Winter swimming should be a big success. Life saving classss will be started as soon as enough are interested. Water polo and swimming meets will also be part of the tank schedule. Student participation in athletics has reached a new peak in the history of H. J. C. Never before has the enthusiasm and interest been shown that is now being given to the organization of the different sport circles. Under the leadership of Coach Archie French, school athletics have taken a vast stride forward that offers a wide scope of sports open to all who care to participate. Football and tennis were the first to get started with the tennis cohorts taking advantage of the fair weather and the lights that make playing a ight possible. The school tennis tournament last season was a huge suc- with some of Houston's stars taking part. This year it promises to be still better with many promising players enrolled. After a year of inactivity football has come back with a showing of terest among the students. Three teams are reporting for practice and in due time inter-class football games will be started. Fred Aebi, Y breast stroke star, and Elmer Hamilton, dash star, are assisting French in the swimming classes. These classes will be carried throughout the entire winter and have a number of active followers who have hopes of putting out a strong school tank team next year. Though no winter league basketball has been scheduled several students practice nightly in order to be in condition for the approaching cage season. Last season the boys team lost only four games out of twenty-four, giving them the high average of eight hundred per cent. The female section of the school are taking their basketball seriously and well they might, for last year their team lost only two games during the season, some of these games with amateur champions. Miss Spiess, girls athletic director, has procured the help of Willard Nesmith, former " C. luminary, who is coaching the girls in their passing and crip shoot- Nesmith believes that the most effective scoring offensive can be done ...th the ball being worked under the basket and is passing this on to the girls. GRID DOPE Last Wednesday night after issuing riforms to the football squad, Coach French called the boys on the field and started a light blocking practice that drilled in fundamentals. So much thusiasm was shown that French picked out two teams and lined them up for few simple signal drills. "Now don't try to tackle." he admonished the defensive bunch. "Just let them push vou out of the way." Evidently the defensive side had other ideas, for on the first play they smeared the runner before he could get started. Then things began to hum. Before long both sides were battling for all they were worth; and it was some battle. Leon "Powerhouse" Green, C. W. Skipper and Harold Renfro starred on ■he offense, while George Hedrick, Starks Green and Tom Studdert raised merry Hades for their eleven. Do not kid yourself into thinking football practice is a mild dummy ige affair done in a half hearted ~ive yourself a break and come out and watch the squad mix it up. Intramural football may roach deserving popularity this year afjter many seasons of near failure. BOXING WILL HAVE PLACE ON H. J. C. ATHLETIC CARD "Nature in the Raw is Seldom Mild." And so it is with the pugilistic sport at this school. Twenty words tell the entire story. Twenty words ... no more no less. . . Houston Junior College boxing contests will reach unexpected heights this year in view of the students interested in making boxing the most popular sport. Last year Junior College initiated the sport in such a way that the gym was filled with outsiders as well as students to witness some of the roughest toe-to-toe siugfests that ever went on inside the ring. Many well balanced cards were worked out witl wrestling matches gaining the spot light on some of the fight nights. When some school boxer would prove too good for his classmates, he would be matched with some local outsider which would make the bout of citywide interest. Immortal in this field are those of Sam Tremonte, "Windy" Smith, Cy Shaw, Harold Renfro, and James Julian. These students took part in all tournament and to them belong the credit of putting on the high standard that it is in Junior College. And this year with the new crop of huskies enrolled in this school, Coach French hopes to present some first class bouts. None of the contestants will be professional fighters and only a few will boast any previous experience. Bouts wilt be carefully made to insure an evenly matched program. All interested should see Coach French immediately for instructions as there will be a match in the near future. This year many of last seasons maulers are still with us any many sizeable freshmen have offered to take part in the bouts. "Moose" Gonzales and Walter Scarborough are lost to the school and their loss will be deeply felt for they were the mainstay of the wrestling team. French Issues Call For Intramural Football Gridiron Sport Has Fine Showing From Athletic Classes; Uniforms and Equipment Issued; Regular Scrimmage Underway Soph-Frosh Encounters Scheduled to Get Under Way in Near Future SOME SHOOTING The doves had no rest last Sunday when Fred Aebi, Hamp Robinson and third party went stalking through the woods a few miles outside of Missouri City. We have it from reliable source hat Fred and HamD killed a total of seventeen and that the third member Sagged the limit. Also that the two Sig shots used exactly two boxes of 'welve gauge shells apiece. HORSE TALK Head Coach Archie French is truly gifted with "horse sense." French has i basket- _ secret longing to start a riding stable at the school and have it listed in tht athletic program. And that brings u to the point that Milford "Windy' Smith, popular J. C. student now attending Texas U., also was gifted with "horse sense" when he tried to get up a rodeo ta be sponsored by the school. GIRLS TO FLAY Are the girls going to have ball team this year? You bet they are! At least they should, judging from the prospects that have turned out this year. After a mild scramble of a civil ture the other night, the girls decided to buckle down and get to work. The girls will have uniforms this year, for the first time. The shorts are to be blue, and a "tricky white blouse" as ladies put it. Wait till you see 'em. The first game will take place in about two or three weeks and will be a clash between the Frosh and Sophs. All the girls need now is a little encouragement and if everyone will do his part, the girls will really put it FIFTEEN WORDS— (Continued from Page 1) must have hit a bump or something, jecause it scratched with ink in it, and ihrew the writing fluid aimlessly over the last entry blank. Oscar Perkins forgot Erskines. His ayes became glarry, and he slung the Genuine Double Lifetime Schayffer fountain pen, irridium tipped point and all, fully 40 yards, through a plate glass window. He was desperate, and as he changed s ink stained pajamas and went back to bed he didn't mumble "To Hell with Schayffer fountain pens," he Shouted it ! M ! KEEN COMPETITION— . (Continued from Page 1) gave a brief sketch of the opening number. The plan has been worked out through the Board of Education, and the college as a whole is behind the project, giving it the heartiest support and co-operation. Mrs. B. M. Ebaugh is leading the girls' side in the competition. After a layoff of two seasons, H. J. C. has taken a fling at the gridiron sport with intramural football grabbing the spotlight instead of conference competition. Handicapped by late practice hours, Coach French found thirty ambitious players interested, in response to his first call. With uniforms and equipment issued, the squad has settled down to regular scrimmage, making ready for the coming class encounters. Packing 185 pounds of beef brawn, Tom Studdert tops the list of linemen. Typical of the famous Red Grange, Studdert worked In an ice plant and played football for exercise. He picks up opposing players with the ease of Hercules and tosses them aside with reckless abandon. Famous for his fighting Irish spriit, Leon "Powerhouse" Green, teammate of the famous Fred Hecker, truly tears up the opposing guards. He's got what it takes and boasts five years' experience with high school and amateur teams. Hughes Tool Co. lost a first string star when John Lamb eased up on his gridiron activities. But he is out for C. just as strong as ever. He holds it to an advantage. A sure cinch to see lots of service at the end position if he continues to keep up his good work, * Probably the most enthusiastic member on the squad is Red Marshall, halfback and John Reagan alumni. Makes up for his lack of experience in willingness and eagerness to win. A good man with a little coaching. ■ Another what-a-man who ranks with the best. Ed Smart, a six-footer who plays the center post like it • should be played and is a good man on any man's team. He is up on the rules and plays the cleanest game of any man on the team. A Sam Houston man, Ray Morris, Our Football Team Name Red Coulson Leon Green Ray Morris George Hedrick Ben Young Reo King Ed Maresak Henry Green James Julian Tom Studdert Harold Renfro Starks Green Oscar Nolan Paul Sparks McNeil Best John Barineau Ed Pulaski Red Marshall Duncan Neblett Ed Smartt Willard Nesmith Red Lewis John Lamb Position Weight Guard 180 Guard 160 Guard 155 End 160 Half 147 Back 160 End 133 Back 155 Tackle 155 Tackle 185 End 155 Back 180 Half 174 End 147 End 140 Quarter 150 Tackle 185 Back 156 Tackle 170 Center 160 Quarter 150 Back 160 End 150 down the end position like nobody's business and stars on the offensive. The "Tarleton Tornado," Starks Green, nicknamed because of his iirst class line plunging and blocking. He rips the line into shreds and has more leg power, hip swinging, knee action and stiff arming than Frank Carideo. Watch him shine. "Platterhead" Maresak did his bi! for the school, for the kid bud ha: the making of a fine man. Thougl only weighing 133 pounds, Ed has plenty of intestinal fortitude and if learning all he can about the end position, at which he hopes to make good. Boasting the biggest pair of legs on the squad, Oscar Nolan is giving the halfback position fits. The girl; get the bum breaks while Oscar scrimmages and mass the front trance waiting for his return. More power to you, Oscar. This Red Coulson has all the ear marks of a tea-sipper, mainly because of his past attendance at San Jac. But years of tutelage under Coach Hodges has given him plenty of knowledge and he shows it in his sterling work at the guard position. George Hedrick gets a double dose of football playing with the T. K. O. frat team as well as the school. He has the build of an athlete and uses in the team. brother of Joe Morris, all-city guard. Ray has that typical tiger fight which makes him a standout in the line. Has plenty of leg drive and is willing to mix it up. Light but tough, Paul Sparks, a real man. Plays end and knifes through the line with deadly precision. He tackles hard, and when he hits a man he stays hit. Will be a big bolster on (•the weakest side of the line and will make end runs around his side an excellent bet with his blocking qualities. Rubs his stomach with a corncob to make him tough. They say Beaumont puts out tough men, and that saying holds true for Harold Renfro, an end who teams up with Sparks to deal misery to the other team. A boxing champ last year and a future gridiron hero this season. Recently out, Red Lewis, Central luminary, stepped into the guard position and things began to hum. He wants to play backfield, but Coach may keep him on the line, for he is in on every tackle. Willard Nesmith, former J. C. basketball and football star who will see plenty of work at the quarter post. A brainy player who is steady and reliable when the going is hardest. A hard man to keep down and has a fighting temper that puts lots of spirit
