Transcript THE COUGAR STOP ME1 IF YOU HAVE HEARD THIS ONE BY MILTON GREGORY JACED SQUOINTS (By Milton Gregory) The silver in the U. S. silver dollar is worth about 30c. It costs more for rowboat to go through the Panama Canal than it does for a battleship. Cement sacks are tied before they are filled. If one Paramecium (a minute animal barely visible to the naked eye) multiplied and all survived to the 9000th generation, they would completely fill the whole known universe. Mahomet III of Turkey began his reign by having 19 of his brothers killed. Some butterflies are worth $20,- 000 each. Most of these are drab and colorless. Brilliant ones are worth little or nothing. When a train is traveling 60 miles an hour, part of the train is is stationary, part is moving 120 miles an hour, and part is traveling backwards at the rate of 10 miles an hour. There is no Indian head on an Indian head penny. The figure on this coin is really a bust of Liberty. The sparrow has twice as many bones in its neck as has the giraffe. A mere thimbleful of the poison produced by the germ of Botalism is enough to kill every human being in the world. Saturday is not the bath night— More people take baths on Sunday than on ny other day of the week. Steel is and rubbei steel. nore elastic than rubber is more durable than General Sherman did not say "war is Hell". He was very much puzzled over this quotation and made an extensive effort to find the person who first said it, A bee's wings beat at a rate between 2000 and 3000 times a second. Secluded Kensington Hall was chosen for the Frosh Bam Dance on the plea that powerful-lunged Pat Foley and Israel Rabinowitz would sincerely appreciate the space and free-air accomodations. And is Alma Stewart the graduate's honey! These long, langurous bay parties are surely the grape- nuts. Pat Foley and Jimmie Brinkley are at each other's throats in Mr. Henderson's classes, but they separate to battle Mr. Harris in English class. Now whycime? Hamp Robinson some time ago donated one cigarette-case-lighter-vanity to Mary Bradley Anderson be- le is "woozy" that way. Reports show that neither smoke! "Woozy" Ander son-Robinson. Richard Long and Jimmie Green run around our track practically in circles practically in the not-all-here practically every day. Gasp an eyeful some sunny afternoon. And Israel Rabinowitz joins Elmer Hamilton in the after-school-swim movement. Drop in on them sometime. Evelyn Coffee, Mary Stevenson, Wilma Lindsey, Virginia Cotton, and -—Lucy Grady are two groups of people to no. Noticed the sun-tan already acquired by Jenny Waite and Catherine Munger? Give Jenny one more good hot week-end and Catherine two or three and you'll really see me thing. Jimmy Brinkley seemingly has to hold hands and long discussions with Lucille Black about the gradu- es or is it romance? Rumored it is that Richard Long- legs is a CRACK-ed track man. Mr, Henderson, Mr. few-strokes to you, last week beat Mack Douglas and L. P. Marshall playing golf. Mr, Harris made Johnnie Allright look amateurish at Tall Timber Stables and impulsively prescribed a parachute to complete the riding outfit of the other saddle-bumper. All of which goes to show the sportsmanship and agility of H, J. C. instructors. INFORMATION: Concerning the whereabouts of the one man in the world for me. Molly Schimmel »CuT>eoa OPENFORUM We invite you to write your opin- n concerning anything you like or dislike. —Editors WANTED: ience.

One— Continued from page 1 again, so I thought that it must have been my imagination. "I continued on my way, but somehow, I had a feeling of apprehension. "A clearing ahead caught my eye, so I dashed forward. I broke through the fringe of bushes, and came face to faee with a large African lion. "He growled and crouched down as if to make a spring. I was petrified with terror. Suddenly I remembered that I was the great Hopan- wiggle. My terror left me and I stared the the lion in the eye. "He growled again, but this time I advanced to meet him. crouched down and sprang as I marched; apparently to my doom." "Gosh, professor," I said breath' lessly, "what happened? Go on! "Well," said prafessor Hopanwig- gle, "I just laughed and went on to the next cage to make plans about having the animals unloaded and turned loose so we could have our hunt. Boy, I was plenty glad that nobody had let that lion out of his cage. He surely was a men looking critter." BY EVELYN COFFEY Dames and Dates For many Friday nights I've been prowling about the Junior League dances, haunting Almeda Drug Store, peering about Phillip's Cafe, and occasionally, even popping out suddenly from behind Mrs. Ebaugh—only to find a mean lack of romantic excitement. Let me first put in a few words concerning the Pat Foley—Ann Ow> madness. Their romance went swish —the grounds being incompatability, providing I can spell it. It seems that they really cared at lot about each other and might have gotten along together if it weren't for an- irrestible impulse to poke each other in the nose whenever they got within striking distance. Incidentally, Virginia Cotton makes the heart of a certain young law student pound like the bearing of a broken down Ford. Harold Renfro is now ga-ga about Joyce Gillette. At one time( fully week ago) he was in the same condition over this yum-yum O'Neal. Fie on you, Harold! You ght stay put till my column goe: to press. Furthermore, Fulton Renfro and s Freckles has gone definite for Frances Nesmith, who reminds one of old-fashioned ballads and roses. But I'll admit she's about the sweetest little lady this side of Paradise— frankly confess that mj knowledge of Paradise is somewhat limited. Poetic Thought Kitty has a little swing, It isn't hard to find. And every where that Kitty goes The swing is just behind. • A.

Minnie and Frieda Topek went A Syllogism In English class, we have recent ly been studying how the validity of tola deductive argument is convenient- Florence Kendrick HELP WANTED: Won't someone do something to make me happy— so I can get rid of this bored look I have. Bonnie Shelton INFORMATION: On how to console doting mothers of debaters. Tommie Cooksey WANTED: A man who will be contented to settle down and live a quiet home life. I am tired of this night life. Sissy O'Neil Help Wanted: Will someone please id Elmer for me. I want to go walking. Loretta Eslinger LOST: Israel Robinowitz, promi' nent psychologist, who has wandered astray due to the extensive strain hii mind has been undergoing since the publication of his great book, "Mental Re-Action of Fleas to Environment." Paul Harris, Jr., who spoke in the school auditorium last Wednesday night, seemed to be for peace and a complete eradication of war. The learned Mr. Harris told us about the horror of war and its bad effects, including the selective draft, which leaves those with flat feet and poor eyes at home. Perhaps Mr. Paul Harris, Jr. forgot to mention the number of flatfeet and poor pairs of eyes that did get into the army in spite of what he would have us believe. When cornered with the question as to how we should eliminate war, Mr. Harris said that we should disarm as an example of our good faith and trust in the altruism of other nations. From the present looks of things, none of us are liable to trust the word "altruism" for no synonym for it exists in the Japanese language today, ■. Harris' ideas of acquiring peace seem to me to be inviting trouble and would be somewhat odious to a person who loved his liberty. Now I would suggest that the school get someone to talk to us about the armed forces of the U. S. and why we should keep them up to the allowed treaty strength. We should hear the other side of the story. Mrs. J. P. McDaniel Galveston ■ dance. ithout bating suits. Cold really they had to And Wilma Lindsey invaded Journalism class and removed Laura Munson, who immediately went into a hudle in the hall. What this country needs is bigger doors or better huddles. Mr. Birney daily suggests improvements in Houston's newspapers. Huh, maybe you could possibly suggest some beneficial changes in this paper! I'm always tired on the first of April. Why? Who wouldn't be after a march of thirty -one days? "Why don't you go in?" asked one tramp of another, as they stood before the gate. "Dat nog is all right. Don't you see he's waggin' his tail." "Sure I do, but he's a-growlin' too, and I don't know which end to believe," ly tested by arranging the steps of the argument in the form of a syllogism. Example: Major premise: Love is blind. Minor premise: The home is an institution. Conclusion: Therefore, marriage must be an institution for the blind. Screwy Gags Chili Spencer's big Pierce-Arrow pulled up to the curb. The little girl's heart missed a beat. "Going north, Babe." "Why, yes." "Well, give my regards to the Eskimos" and the big car continued up Main Street. "Well never have a woman president," contributes Fred Aebi, "because a president has to be thirty- five years of age." Small Stuff for What It's Worth Only one thing is as cretain as the fact that day follows night—and that is that every issue of the Cougar carries a Jessie Darling story- Now it WISDOM If it be wisdom to take what Fate may give, To ask no questions, to make no prayers— Then how is one to get along ? Is one to drift, and follow ways Of least effort in this old world? Is one a fool to try and try and then try again To reach the star of one's desire? If that be wisdom, then give to me The kingdom of the fools, and let Me work and try again to right The wrongs I've done. Then when my days are o'er, Perhaps my soul in peace shall rest With knowledge of a goal attained. —Wade Debaters— Continued from page i carried more weight than did Mr. Dupre's for each of the visiting debaters, Messrs. Garcia, Mummy, and Cox, rose in turn nd sid they thought the girls looked O. K. The banquet, arranged by the Cougar Collegians and the Guild Savant, took place in the school cafeteria to 6:30 Friday evening. Ap- proximtely thirty-five persons were present. Bud Steeger, president of the Guild Savant, officiated as master of ceremonies. The banquet was punctured with numerous short talks by various members of the assembly. Among the speakers were Mr. Du- Mrs. Bender, Mr. Harris, The Texas debaters, and officers of the arious classes and clubs of the school. Amazon river has the biggest mouth the world haven't seen Jessie yet. Announcement The readers of this column are cordially invited to witness, or take part in the following duels which are to take place Thursday at 3 p. m. The writer of this column—Leroy Melcher, Virginia Cotton, Kitty Hurlock, Wilma Lindsey, Richard Long, my personal opinion that Ered Aebi, New Books— Continued from page 1 been placed in the library. These have long been needed, and are now entirely filled with the overflow of books which has filled all available open spaces. 'The John H. Bender Memorial Library,' consisting of about sixty volumes on physical education, is to be placed in a special case and marked by an appropriate nscription," said Mrs. Shearer as she directed her assistants in placing the last of the books in their proper places. Another affair in the offing, is the Library club annual picnic. Definite plans have not been worked out. It has been the custom to have the event take the place of the last club meeting of the year in May. The chiarmen of the entertainment committee and the program committee will have an announcement to make concerning this outing in a week or two. geographers who state that the Refreshments will be served. Jas. Mooney: You seem to have a bad cold, old man. What are you doing for it? Ben Young: Today I'm doing what Craig told me to do. It's Jones' day tomorrow, and the next is Hiden- himer's. If I'm not better by Sunday, and if I'm alive, I will try your remedy. Will you please put it on this memo pad?
