Transcript THE COUGAR COUGAR CRACKS A DUMBBELL THINKS BY JAMES A. JULIAN A woman is no stronger than her weakest wink. . A fool and his money are soon partied. Lots of our studes appear to be victims of the hit and rum drivers. And there was the Scotchman who was willing to hitch-hike a mile for Is isn't aways the college spirit that counts—sometimes it's the spirits. People used to talk about the time, the place and the girl. But nowadays no one sees a man who has the place and the girl taking the trouble to look at his watch. "It's the little things in life that tell," said the co-ed as she yanked her kid brother from under the divan. She was only a throat specialist's daughter—but ahhh. A nip in the corridor usually means a nap in the classroom. You don't lave to live in a tree to be a sap. At any rate, professor, we can do something you can't. We can sleep while you are lecturing. The word alimony, dear pupils, is merely a contraction of "all his money". Some girls are poor losers when it comes to reducing. Two is company, three is a crowd- in a modern break fast-nook. When youth calls youth—it means more business for the telephone company. ' He who laughs last—should have started sooner. A college, boy doesn't necessarily have to be a cannibal to live off his folks. Neck and neck describes the actions of any college student. The magician sang before his saw- a-man-in-two act: "I must halve that Howcanyoupossiblycrossthestreetwhen thecarskeepeomingalonglikethis? As Juliet said to Romeo from the balcony, "Why didn't you get seats in the orchestra?" Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow. Some girls are so hard it takes a diamond to make an impression on You can't drive a nail with a sponge, no matter how hard you soak it. He who hesitates is honked. Remember when Lincoln was elected President the people drove oxen to the polls to vote. Song dedicated to flappers: "So As Ye Show, So Shall We Peep." A caterpillar is just an upholstered worm. Beef was the highest when the cow jumped over the moon. A good example of wasted energy is to tell a hair-raising story to a bald- headed man. Rhubarb must be blood-shot celery. The only place you can get a chicken dinner for a dollar or less is at a feed and grain store. There was a young lady named O'Niel, Who went up in a big ferris wheel; But when half way around She looked at the ground And it cost her an eighty cent meal. JUS' 'TWEEN US GIRLS It seems that the Alexander-Spitler romance certainly has been lasting. Betta watch out, Hulda, theres couple of cute girls that would like a little of Bill's attention. Then there's Wilma and Silas. Aren't they sweet? It has all the ear marks of True Love. Say, Bob, where's Betty? It doesn't seem possible that that romance could have gone on the rocks, but things like that still happen. Huh? Pretty little Phyllis Workeman must have done something to Wai Lemmon. You know he was terribly interested in her last year. Well, thanks to Phyllis, now the rest of the girls have a chance. Boys, are you going to let those two good-looking girls, Ruth Depperman and Melbadel Dright, run loose in the halls? You never can tell, you might have a chance, maybe. What is this I hear about Grace Scholeman and Harry Phillips? Don't tell me they're getting that way too! The halls of H. J. C. seem to be a fashion review with Melbadel Wright the center of attraction. If she wears it you know it's good. It looks like Howard Graham has found someone that really appreciates him. What about it, Lolita? JUS' TWEEN US GENTS Hello everybody! This column is strictly for gentlemen (now girls, calm yourself) 'cause, you see, we're a couple of dizzy blondes. Well, now that we've got all the ladies reading this we'll go ahead and say what we please. Sigh, Cy, Sigh! Gee, ain't it awful? We mean all that heavy Cying on the campus. Did we misspell it? Oh, well, you could spell it. almost anyway and it would still ride in a green car, wear boots, and eat ice-cream cones in front of the building. Oh, yeah, here come Warren and Jimmy. Are they going in for aesthetic dancing or is it the mosquitoes? And we're wondering which really is the president of the sophomore class. Did you see those lady .guests at the freshman dance? There's rumor that some of them weren't ladies—how about Hudson Edge? Huh? Well, now, he's a darn good sport and we are all for him. Say, boys, you may know your vegetables, but here's a tip on colors. Red te a good color, and sure is pretty on some blondes, especially that little Washburn girl—think we'll try a little. Green? Just take a look at the freshman girls—green lipstick and everything! Oh, yeah, and you all remember pink makes men propose. Wonder if Nora Louise had any luck Friday night? Well, if pink won't work try a little | Violet. Gee, ain't she a honey? Sure, e mean V. Herbert. If you like dark fall shades try Black—Lucille. And in case this does not Tally with your color scheme, try Lucy. Professor Miner one day observed "Most students have to come to college to learn to think; a good many of them — freshmen especially — think they are thinking when they are not." Christine Fitzgerald, twice president of the John R. Bender Dramatic Club, (see the Cougar Directory) once had aspirations toward becoming a preacher but has decided that; place is in the home." Alec Murelle was practicing some of his lawyer tactics on a fellow student. He was just in the midst of a discourse setting forth the virtues of a strong character. "Don't let anybody tell you what to do—", he was saying. About that time, the lecture was interrupted by the sound of an automobile Packard horn. "That's my wife. I have to leave you j you now, if I dont want to get in trouble", said Alec and he was" gone. Charles May, one of the several Texas Company employees attending RJ.C, is not as lazy as he seems. He just works so fast that he is always thru. C. Herman Albert, of Kuhn's Paint Company, is living up to his alphabetical prestige. In a year and six weeks in H.J.C. Journalism classes, his only grades have been A's. Albert's fellow workers report that he "relents" being called "Baby Face". Those mysterious sounds you have been hearing in the halls between seven and seven-thirty are nothing but Harry A. Echols practicing his theme song, Harry seems to think that Russ Colombo is good too. Many H. J. C. students thinking "Lefty" Morris had left the institution for good, have been wondering at his presence at the door three times per week. Lucile Slaughter reason. the Freshman has a hrfa.m SPECIALIZED COURSE OFFERED IN PHYSICS Students taking physics are now grouped and courses are offered to them according to needs of their future occupations. The engineering and pre-medical students want intensive foundation couise in physics are placed in Physics 114 in order that they may study the course in detail. There are 65 enrolled in this course. Other students taking physics to satisfy requirements for a degree or general "information" course are placed in Physics 113, students are now enrolled. Derbies Patiently I've listened to many laments About the tricks of fate and the tidff of events; I know them all—I've heard each pression Concerning the heat and the business depression. I've looked at politics from every angle; I know how serious is the European tangle. But not no these will I waste my ink— There is another question of which I must think. It's not the weather, nor wayward youth, Far graver this, and that's the truth. Before we argue of wages and hours, Or take a day off to work with our flow'rs, There's just one thing we should de- When will the Empress Eugenie subside? Sooner or Later Sooner or later You'll forget AH that you're saying tonight, and yet— 'Tis sweet for the stars to kiss the sea, But not half so sweet as your kissing me. It doesn't mean a thing, I know, But I like your snappy line,—and so,— NEW APPARATUS RECEIVED IN LAB Few of the outstanding pieces of apparatus received in the physics department recently are a permeameter, spectrameter, several high grade armatures and voltmeters, a variable inductance standard, a standard condenser, and several pieces for the experimental study of magnetic and electric fields. The permeameter is used in an experimental study of the magnetic properties samples of iron, used in generators and motors. The spectrometer is used in the intensive study of light, particularly the kinds or colors emanating from chemical elements. Inductance standard and standard condensers are used in the study of. both low frequency and high frequency alternating and direct electric currents. REGISTERING AT JUNIOR COLLEGE BY GENE DANFORTH Houston Junior college always gives three days in which to register, and to be perfectly proper you must go the last day and at the last possible minute. When you enter the building you must be very noisy, being sure that you yell a greeting to everyone in sight. You must be very rude by pushing in ahead of the others waiting and by loudly demanding cards. After receiving the cards, you should waste a great deal of time so that there will be a long line waiting ahead of you. When you finally reach your destination and start to fill out your cards, be sure you ask many foolish questions concerning the course you want to take. Be sure to make your cards our incorrectly, for there are plenty of cards to waste. You should have only a vague idea of what courses you wish to take, for there are teachers to plan your life's work for you. When the teacher has fixed your program for you, you should look around to see if you can cause any more trouble. If you look hard enough, you will see a long line of people waiting to pay for the courses they are taking. You really don't have to wait in line so making a great deal of disturb - ice, you push in ahead of the crowd. When a certain man tells you the amount of money you will have to pay, you must argue about it, for arguing does good in Junior college. When you make out your check for your courses, be sure to make it out for the wrong amount so that you n keep the people waiting just a tie longer. After you have completed your registration, you may be able to find someone to take your courses for you. She ] walked home from a The m. As I li mlight has a thousand charms content in your warm young Knowing, despite these convincing sighs, That you whisper a thousand precious lies. Sooner or later You'll forget All that you're saying tonight, And yet— Never mind the by-and-by, 'Cause, honey, Sooner or later, So will I! 'Rasslin Techneck A recent dance, to which Junior College students were invited, at thi "End O' Town" dance shack might well have been termed "A Lesson Rasslin'." They wanted to make whoopee- do di o do—poop poop pa doop (shamey)—hey hey. So they went away to the "End O Town' 'to dance to the forty-two piece orchestra. The dancers grunted and groaned in perfect harmony, the deep basso of rhythmic na use at ion blending in with the general theme of the beauty and moonlight. Or was it beauty? Or was it moonlight? Or was it either? During a lull in the beat of tom-tom's tuba, a piercing cry of innuendo broke out of the atmosphi It was a lady in distress. Or was it ■ess? Anyway we go into poetry- Canto 7 It was up in Lehigh Valley, In the days of nip and tuck; Nip took his gal to this here dance, And left her there to luck. Canto 11 And luck she had the whole night through, In dancing and dancing—and dancing. After a while things began to hum. The orchestra threw away their horns and clapped their hands, as the gathering quit dancing and started a game of "Squat Josie." It was a revival of the Scullion's Ball. A charming affair, we assure you. Canto 77 Her hair was white with sleet and snow, Chill was her face in the wintei She wept and wailed an eerie tune. Someone stole her pantaloons. Collegians Initiation was in order at a luncheon given in honor of ;he njw members of the Cougar Collegians, girls' pep club of H. J. C, held at the Phoenix Furniture company recently.

One day Mr. Miner interrupted a history lecture to ask the class, "Where is Turkey?" Quick as 3 flash, Gershen replied, INSTEAD OF REACHING Oh, what has become of those famous Who, for a fag would walk a mile?
