Bulletin Board Needed A bulletin board is greatly needed by our college for announcements of various kinds of information for the students. A board should be placed sowewhere near the office and students requested to g-lance over it every day. All news posted on the board should be considered official and if students fail to see it they should be held responsible. News fpom the office could be; placed thereon and save all the trouble of class room announcements. Club reports and meeting announcements would be appreciated by all students. If you like the, idea of a bulletin board, talk it up and we shall see what takes place. Mrs. J.P.McDaniel O Horn Blowing Although we have often called the students attention to the undesirable noise made by their parents or friends blowing automobile horns before classses have dismissed, it appears that our reprimands have gone for naught. Sometimes it is almost impossible for classes to continue because of the din created by the unharmonizing of the horns. The drivers evidently blow to let little Susie or Willie know where their cars are parked, but how the students can detect the right horn out of about ten blowing at the same time, is difficult to understand. If the students and drivers of the automobiles could agree upon some certain meeting place, this noise would not be necessary. Instructors would not have to waste the time for which the student is paying by having to wait until it is possible to attend class. Whether the horns cease their discordant concert depends wholly upon the students in the classes for whom the horns are bleating. If they tell the honkers that quiet is desired, this evil need no longer be tolerated. O Timely Attendance Houston Junior College evidently has many "Ten O'clock Scholars," if the number of students tardy to their classes is taken into consideration. Many an instructor will be half-way through with his lecture when a boy or girl comes nonchalantly strolling in. The whole class is often distracted from their studies by the arrival of some late student. If a real effort is made, there should be no trouble in having your attendance coincide with the time in which classes are held. O The girls baseball team, which will soon be organized, will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p. m. All girls interested sign up some time this week with Miss Spiess. THRU THE KAMPUS KEYHOLE BY SEYMOUR SCANDAL Seymour Scandal has received many threats concerning his health if certain stories ran in the Cougar. They are all running now, or will be printed by next issue. IS you a bit of scandal on a certain student, turn it over to Seymour who will see that it gets into print. George Moer's and Bert Johnson will probably be fighting a duel any day over a certain brunette in the local "Paris Revue." Duncan Neblett evidently enjoys those bay parties he attends. Dun- tly found tbe sea breezes tiring, so he crawled upon a cot to take a nap. When Mr. Neblett opened his eyes, he was horrified to discover that the had a bed-feller- should I say "bedfelleress" . . . nameless young lady (Who ei joys a good joke) had crawled upon the cot just before Duncan was wakened by another conspirator. Our fainted when he saw the sweet young thing at his side. Duncan brands the report "a lie," but Sey mour knows better. Bert McElroy, Carnes Weaver, George Hedrick, and Duncan Neblett 11 tell you about the benefits of massages .... signed "Marie." Ask Robert Piehl the name of the girl in Galveston who said that he was such a good dancer. The one in the black dress. FASHION NOTE: Dopey Daniel tells us that there will be little change in men's pockets for 1933. So John Hill can't take it. We Hear that he balked at taking the initiation into the Guild Savant Club. He was finally persuaded, however, that he should be a sport and take it —after he was hogtied. Harry Gray brings a little sweet with him every day. Amid the delightful aroma of formaldehyde and pickled woims, Charlie Green and Lucy Grady continue to carry on their budding romance. It must be lab at first sight. When Elamey Fisher received a math grade that she didn't like, it was Hugo Lueders who asked Mr. Rees to raise it. What might this be? And Red Coulson contends that the new three-point-two might be used as a mouthwash. Ethel Margaret Falk and Mary- Elizabeth Horan have not paid Seymour Scandal the money they promised for publicity given them in this ilumn. If they don't keep up with leir payments, you might never see their names in print again. NEWS ITEM: "Robbers break into Texas Bank." Well, at least they got some good exercise. So Seymour Scandal, who knows of several H. J. C. boys who are not waiting for beer to return to Texas, is now leaving the hot air-waves to the instructors until next issue. SCANDAL SHEET Any girls interested in life saving should make arrangements to take the test as soon as possible. See Miss Spiess about requirements. This is printed by the special request of one of our students—Bill Jones. You may have been wonde: ing why he comes to San Jacinto High School at 2:30 every day. He says to see none other than Shirley Minto. Did you know Welton Lee Salm was valedictorian of La Grange High School in 1932 ? Where did Ava Dee Jackson get her football, bracelet, watch, and 1926 ring from Abilene High? What is this certain charm that nice little boy, T. V. Rogers has over the girls? Who is the student at Jr. College that is a milkman? Ask him if you would like to know. Why was Alma Stewart so sleepy and tired when she came to class April 3.—What was wrong? We must put an end to the notes that John Hill and Nell Wade are continuously writing in their jour- ilism class. Did you know that one of our students—Cortis Lawrence—is editor of the Shell Shock, the publication of the local Shell Company? We can't see how come J. M. Johnson raves so over a certain blonde from Hites. Even his friend T. Heartyly agrees that H. J. C. girls are much nicer— and better company, too. Wonder why Mr. Dupre always speaks of Catherine Hurlock as being H. J. C.'s own "5th grader." Speaker was explaining how everyone at a certain dance should come attired in clothes to match one's hair. "Red calls for clothes, black hair calls for black suit, etc.," he explained. Rote: "Hot dawg, here's where I get to double for Mahatma Ghandi." All good things must come to an end, so bla-bla-bla, and more bla until I see you. Has that young man who has been calling on you given you any encouragement?" Oh, yes! Last night he asked me if you and your mother were agreeable to live with. Many a scandal is started by an idle roomer. EXCHANGE ree papers will furnish the material for the exchange column this issue. They are: The Thresher, published by the students of Rice Institute; The Baylor College Bells, published by the students of the Baylor College for Women; and The Tiger, published by members of the student body of Colorado College. An editorial of local interest is found in The Thresher. It upholds the action of the school in suspending the eight athletes, and lauds the honor council for the work it has done. The H. J. C. lassise also received nice write-up because of their 6-24 victory over the Rice sextet. Some jokes from the Baylor College Bells are worth passing on: "Help! Help! Stop that man! He tried to kiss me!" "That's all right, miss. There'll be another one along in a minute." She: "Isn't it terrible the way Bill snores in class?" e: "I'll say it is. He won't let me get a minute of sleep." The Colorado College Tiger comes it with this statement: "That fraternities are a menance to the public welfare seems evidenced by the fact that one university town police force has descriptions of all students living in the fraternity houses." What are you bragging about ? We got fraternity pledges that go to class in shorts! From the same publication we find under the title of Campus Curiosi- Editor, The Cougar: As per your instructions, our secret service operative No. 7 has been investigating conditions in the Houston Junior College. Yesterday, while looking through the office files he found a package of notes, evidently hidden away. Imagine our surprise when we found this package to contain scathing comments on the Cougar, so we are sending you a notice of this in order for you to remedy the situation. Here is a sample of what we read: 1 have been taking the Cougar for the last five years, and read all of it. I am looking forward to the time when my name will be in print. By actual count, I have seen the name of Pat Foley in the paper 739 times, and mine hasn't been in even once. Please do something about this. James Talk Dean Dupre: Our attention has been called to your school publication. If you do not change your editorial policy with reference to news content and style, we are going to sue for libel, infringing on patents, and general principles. This is the last warning: Quit trying to compete with us. Ballyhoo Publishing Co. Dean Dupre: We are sick and tired of having smart aleck" stuff written about us in that crazy little paper your nutty Journalism students publish. If they don't stop making wise-cracks about us, we will vote unanimously to have eight-hour exams instead of only two hours at the end of the term, The Faculty The Cougar: We are through with lending you cuts. Why don't you break down and buy some? The Houston Boast The Cougar: Your April Fool issue was fine. I wanted to show my maw and paw t we are doing down here in Houston, but when I got ready to send it the postman wouldn't take it, because he said the government had a rule against sending trash in the mail. A Stewdent The Cougar: I want a picture of myself on the front page. Tommie Cooksey Bill Stiles Ethel Margaret Falk Rastus: "Mandy! A big 'gator down at the river just got one of de chilluns." Mandy; "By golly, I knowed something was getting 'em." Prisoner to cell mate: "I aBked the warden to let us have a radio tonite, Lucky Strike is broadcasting our crime." Kate Munger: "Let it be understood right now that I don't neck, so don't try to kiss me or hold my hand. Where are we going?" Horace Mills: "Home!" ties: "Al E. Smith was recently elected president of the student body of Los Angeles Junior College. He doesn't come from New York,"
