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.
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
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.
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
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

BY SEYMOUR SCANDAL
Seymour Scandal has received
many threats concerning his health

They are all running now, or will be

it over to Seymour who will see that
it gets into print.

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,

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:

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.
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:
