Although a complete list of former students at Texas university is not , available at this time, it is known that Terry Russ and Carleton Thompson are attending that school. Lucian Bukowski is in Dallas where * he is a student at the Baylor Medical school. Elden Daunoy is attending Rice and is a starting guard on the freshmen football team. Red Delery is also going in for football at Texas A. and M. Red already has two letters in football at that college. Ida Mehr, a graduate of H. J.

"I believe that every individual ought to be research minded." stated Dr. W. W. Kemmerer, Director of Research of the Houston Public Schools, at an assembly of the Houston Junior College, Wednesday^ Oct. 28. "Research is just good intelligent thinking and acting in trying to solve problems", Dr. Kemmerer continued, "and by doing a little research on our own part we will be able to find our aim in life sooner and achieve happiness and success" Due to research methods that we have developed, schools can now teach more and better subjects in a shorter time than was the case a few years ago. And on account of the present day system of teaching, a decrease of 25% has been shown in the number of accidents among children of school age." Dr. Kemmerer began his address with the first thoughts of research, when man solved his first problems, and illustrated the necessity of it now. "I know of nothing," "besides bread and butter that is more important and will help us more than research," Dr. Kemmerer said. The Housion Junior College Freshman Class of '31, said to be the most promising in the history of the school by N. K. Dupre, assistant dean, because of the spirit of organization and comradeship which exists among them.

English students of Junior college will be pleased to learn that the Ben Greet Shakespearian players will be in the city Wednesday, November 18, to present two of the famous English author's plays. In the afternoon, "The Comedy of Errors" will be enacted, while at night, "Macbeth" will be portrayed. Sir Philip Ben Greet is justly famous for his inimitable presentation of the works of the immortal Shakespeare. He has thrilled millions with his characterizations. Here is what a Princeton student says of his "Macbeth." "The Ben Greet players have come and gone, and we are all pleased with the production they have staged. I hear nothing but the highest praise. We have never seen 'Macbeth' produced quite so well." The players will be here only one day. Cougar To Choose Campus Celebrities Oh! Gee! Gosh! I've never seen so many swell lookin' dames in all my life since the time I was awarded first prize in the Houston Perfect Baby contest back in 1913. There wuz some stiff competition in that contest, an' to win a prize like I did wuz a real honor. In fact, I still have the silver spoon the judge gave me for being the healthiest baby. (Notice I said healthiest). Anyway, to get back to the 1931 Beauty contest of the co-eds of H. J. C. Ya know I imagine it'll be sim'lar to those baby contests, or sump'n. Hair pullin' an' pinchin'. Only when I wuz in the baby contest, we didn't 'xactly know what we wuz doin' it for. Ya know how kids'II grab for your hair the first thing. Course each parent thought his entrant was about the cutest thing there, an' that the first prize wuz a cinch sewed up in the well known burlap before the judges even arrived. Ya know, I've never had much to do with real beauty contests, but they tell me when these grown-up dames start competin' for their (Continued on page 2) Broomtail BY HARVEY RICHARDS, JR. The pale August moon looked down on the little Texas border town, bathing in the coolness that followed a heated day. The one main street was lined with saddle horses and a few wagons. The impatient stomp of a horse's hoof, the clank of trace chains, the clump of high heeled boots on the board walk, jingle of spurs, and the sound of human voices mingled together to make up the sounds that echoed and re-echoed through the streets of the town on this Saturday night. Lights glared from the doorways of the open stores, roaring hilarity boomed from the gambling-halls and saloons. The border town was in full swing. Through the swinging doors of a I saloon reeled Hank Donovan, six feet I of bronzed, weather beaten, wrinkled I skin. His long nose was slightly j flushed and he was opening and closing one eye in an effort to make both focus on the same thing at the same time. Stopping in front of the hitching rack, he stood gazing long and pityingly at the horse that was tethered there. PLUM WILD "Po' hoss. Nothin' but a broomtail, (Continued on page 4) YEAR'S PROGRAM PLANS COMPLETE, HENDERSON SAYS Speakers and Music Are To Be Featured in Assemblies A series of the most profitable assemblies ever to be held at the college are in store for H. J. C. students according to S. W, Henderson, chairman, at a recent meeting of the committee on assembly period entertainment. "It is our hope", Mr. Henderson stated, "to present the best of speakers, art numbers, and interesting discussions in order that we may give the students profitable entertainment and the urge to attend assemblies. The appropriation of a $200 fund for the assembly numbers will make it possible to give the students benefi- as well as interesting programs. Chatauqua speakers, musicians, lecturers, and all classes of good entertainment will be brought to the school in an effort to encourage interest in assemblies of the school." The month will contain three as- (Continued on page 3) DUPRE EMPHASIZES OPPORTUNITIES OF JUNIOR COLLEGE Growth Stressed in Public Education Week Address H. J. C. IS SUCCESS Night Classes of College Grade Ideal for Employed "The Houston Junior College's Contribution to Education" was the subject of an address given by N. K. Dupre, assistant dean of the Houston Junior college, over KTRH Thursday night . "Junior College has proven by its growth from 561 students in its first year to 858 in its fourth year, that there is a definite need for a local college in the scheme of public education," stated Mr. Dupre. Mr. Dupre especially emphasized the opportunity the junior college offers to Houston youths who are unable to attend other colleges, special courses for teachers and prospective teachers, and special work for adults along cultural and professional lines. "It has also proven that there is a definite need for night classes of college grade in the system of education," Mr. Dupre pointed out. "There are many students who must carry a full day's work in order to earn their livelihood, and a college education comes after work." "And last, the Houston Junior college has proven that a junior college can be successfully run on a reasonable tuition basis where the high school building is avilable after school hours for college purposes, with little of no appreciable expense to the school district." Mr. Dupre concluded by extending a cordial invitation ot the radio audience to visit the college. BIRNEY APPOINTS STUDENT REPORTERS In order that the Houston Junior College may get the proper amount of publicity in the three prominent newspapers of the city, Fred R. Birney, instructor of journalism, has vppointed three journalism studen;s to report current junior college news to them. L. P. Marshall reports for th? Houston Press; V. F. Harrison reports for the Chronicle; A. Marks reports for the Post-Dispatch. The three papers were glad to receive these young men, and if 'hey live up to expectations, they will get much experience in the line for which they are studying. SOPH CLASS WILL SPONSOR DANCES AT GAID0;S CLUB Beginning November 18, the sophomore class will sponsor dances at Gaido's night club every two weeks. These dances will be primarily for Junior college students but outsiders will be admitted with an additional cost. Twenty per cent of the gate receipts will go into the "sophomore treasury to defray expenses for the year. Lee's Owls, popular university orchestra, will furnish the music for each of the dances.
