Transcript THE COUGAR PAGE THREE It is the desire of the staff to make Cougar Scientist a section of the paper devoted to all branches of science, and -representative of each department of science in Junior College. We appreciate the co-operation and assistance of the students and teachers this past * term, and extend an invitation to everyone interested to contribute material for this department during the spring semester. . Soldering has been found to be one of the ancient arts. It was used to stop up holes and seal joints during , the 11th century. Neither is asbestos a modern invention. This fire-resisting fabric was used in ancient Rome. One of the night features at the Chicago World's Fair will be illumi- ' nated pictures cast in the clouds by electricity. Ivory combs and stone cosmetic jars of 3700 B. C. have been unearthed in Northern Iraq by an archaeological expedition working there under the joint auspices of the University of Pennsylvania Museum and the American Schools of Oriental Research. According to Prof. W. R. Coe, of Yale, oysters usually prefer to be father one year and mother the next, but they can be father and mother simultaneously. They are bisexual. Studies at the Yale School of Medicine show that large parts of the human brain can be removed by surgery without seriously handicapping the normal pursuits of an individual. By means of short radio waves Prof. F. L. Hopwood, of the University of London, claims he can cook the white of an egg and leave the yolk entirely raw, or he can hard-boil the yolk inside the totally uncooked white. Dishing the Dirt Rumors say that the last time Elmer "Spats" Hamilton, self - acclaimed gigolo, went out "gal-ing," he reported % a miserable evening, His only explanation (which is enough) was that the gal was cross-eyed and kept eating off his plate at dinner. $ Join the A. H. L. L. for protection. This organization was formed to offer security to those students who might , otherwise be gipped, chisseled, yipped, trimed, skinned, or what have you, cut of any monetary loans to John Hill. The A. H. L. L- stands for Anti- # HU1 Loan League. More power to this organization. Reports from Texas A. and M. say that Meyer Lurie, former H, J. C. ' student, is paying his room and board at the institution with the return of the money he invested in "galloping dominoes." Those who know Lurie do not take this report to be a mere idle rumor. H. J. C. will probably be the scene of some classy boxing bouts after the * new term gets under way, according to Coach French in a recent statement. It is a pleasure to watch some of the boys working out to condition themselves for thess coming slug feasto. Kamp Robinson goes in for the sport because Woozy likes brutes. "Bulldog" I (as Robinson is called because of his j ' aggressiveness) says he may be a lady's man, but that fact doesn't interfere with his being an ardent boxing fan. And he is adept with his mitts " according to his sparring partner — Harold Renfro. And Renfro should know, beeaase he himself is a nose-buster of no mean repute. At any rate Renfro will take on any one in his weight division ■ for all kinds of competition from pie- eating and peanut-rolling to the more manly and vigorous sports of boxing and wrestling. Alice "Popcye" Luckel the gal "wit the bronx aggscent an de steam roller build" made a bum beti with some lad. He (the lad) bet Popeye that inside of two years she would break into the movie game. The bet being for five . simoleons. It looks like Luckel has the best cl-ance of losing. She would make a ,ood Japanese ju jitsu girl. L. P. Marshall, Mack D., J. Allright, J. Darling, Bob Stallings are boys that have gone in for the dance promoting business with A-l success. Their two dances at the Junior League Club with Pat Quinn's orchestra play- * ing have drawn good crowds fram Rice, Junior College, San Jacinto and the working (lucky) boys. Even Kitty Hurlock got to go. " The Pi Beta's pulled a willy the other nite. The stage was all set for another jungle party. Bill Goggan and date thought Camp Beatty wm the spot; so there they went. Hamp R. and Woozy A. hiked it to Sugar- land. John H., Katie- Norman, H. Best- fro and Nell Berry plus all the food went carousing around the bayou. Fred A., Wilma L., Leroy M. and Lucille Birmingham spent the nite hunting for burnable wood. Several couples went to Herman Park. One to a show. And one wise guy want to bed. The two winning bunches were the wise guy who went to bed and the four with the eats. The wri'.er can remember when Joe Patterson was a dumb egg at Fannin Grammar school. When Bert McElroy whipped two or three kids everyday at school for calling him Ethelbelt. When Bud Steeger sold more Saturday Evening Posts than any other two boys in Houston. He had the record of making you buy a magazine. Our nomination for the best orchestra. Claude Hopkins playing at the Rose land Ballroom in New York. Theme song "I would Do Most Anything For You." Colored outfit with Isader Hopkins writing his own arrangements of the big hits. Gutter Gossip 'TI! TED CLIFFORD— (Continued from Page 1) bow, Archie French, Naasson K. Dupre, and Sue Goree Thomason. The danca will be semi-formal, and will be held »t the University club. Ted Clifford'i oschestra will furnish the music. Houston Junior College each year has supported the Student Association dance, and with the evident high interest shown, this year will ba no ex- caption to the rule. Student Association President Jimmie Brinkley has done his best to assure the success of the dance by choosing the most convenient location and the best orches- tia for tlie dance, and the prettiest and most acceptable type of dance. Bids have been issued, and admission to the dance will be $1- As benefit dances are free from taxation, students know they are helping the Junior College in its admirable policy of lending money to industrious but impecunious students and not playing taxes to an attracting and extracting federal government. The enthusiasm for this dance is directly traceable to the students' expectation of colorful evening dresses and lively music for four hours. Not for aeveral weeks have students faced the possibility of dancing until two o'clock (n the morning, and they welcome the coming danae with exultant acclamations. According to current reports, the young ladies have only to rival flame and the flowers with their beautiful apparel to m«ke the danca a success. All other plans are satisfactorily completed. never fall in love" (mebbe). The immortal words of Harold Renfro (woman killer de luxe); but he has at last fallen for the charms of Nell Berry, another San Jac hotcha. Nell has an older sister (Kathryn) that attends J. C. and the older sis keeps Nelly well informed on Harold's school flirtations. Lou Gaines would sure like to give the world an impression that her big break-up with H. D. Matthews, (Southwestern athlete and former J. (table) does not mean a thing to her. Gossip has it that Hamp Robinson >es not go steady with HIS Mary B. "Woozy" Anderson. In fact he only dates a week with her. He admits he buys her lipstick. "So I will be sure and get my special flavor", he adds. Ethel Margaret Fa!k quiet, unassuming and as good looking as the pick of Earl Carroll's Vanities. Makes most of the girls around J. C. take a back -eat. She must have ■ steady or -nebbe she is too young, but it is funny ,that we never see her at the social whirls. Any time you think John Hill can not sing then go grab a back seat. Visited at his work down at the Chronicle the other nite and he warbled 'his vocal chords all over the place. His voice sounds like a blend of the Mills Brother's, Crosby, Lombardo's and th; First Methodist Choir. Everything may be jam up but the Hill boy has "g.-it em." Our nomination for the best sport, biggest hit, swellest kid at this prison —Verron Scott. Toots a sax in Ted Cliffords orchestra and is one of the best looters in the city. Your darn tootin and he rates. What I mean. A bunch of us dropped around the Lamar Annex a few midnites ago and George Stevenson (the big butter «g man from Okla. U.) the hello. ; THE nite force.

You wouldn't know what club to use!" now listed with John Hill, George Stevenson, Bob Stallings and Clark Gable as her "only boy friend." Bob's (Stalling) yen for the femmei leans towards the elite of Sam Houston High — Marian Ferrin debutante, brunette and Etta Kett Riding Club officer. She used to be an old flama of Malcolm Pech's and he says that the fire may start burning again. Judge: "Who was driving when you collided with that car?" H. Mills, triumphantly): "None of us; wa were all in the baek seat." Sport Shots Saw Bob Brahnam the other night. Bob is attending Rice and is taking the Cheaa, Engineer's course. In a football game the other day between the Chem E's and the Civil E's, Brahnam pulled the hero act and scampered around end in the closing minutes of play for an 80 yard run which iced the game for his outfit. When asked what he thought of J- C.'s basketball possibilities he was not so encouraged. Branham tells us that Malcolm Pech Is one of the most promising athletes that he has ever seen and thinks that Pech will soon be grabbed by some college. The mainstays of last seasons cage team are out as far as school basketball is concerned. Malcolm Pech has all he can do to work and get his studies. George Gayle works from the early hours till noon. Bill Jeter, Walter Scarborough and Allen Weed left school. Bob Brahnam is attending Rice. Harry Matthews is making a name for himself at Southwestern. Last year Cougar cage bunch had little trouble in taking the 56th Calvary team, but this year the Calvary five looks like a real team. Junior College will have to improve rapidly if they expect to beat the horsemen. In a practice tilt the other night, the Calvary walled away with the college lads. arold Renfro (enthusiastically); "A wonderful night, a lovely girl — what a combination."

"Oh it's all righ»" replied the girl friend, "but I still prefer golf." Preacher. "Matthae!" "Will you have this wotnan to be your wedded wife?" Ed Boyle: "What do you suppose I cama here for?" I can find no justification for co-eds They're blase, Not deigning to speak, Even after numerous introductions. They converse in stilted terms, Of frigid sophistication, Condescension, sympathy to them are unknown, Tbey extol the vices, Even going so far as to excel man in them, And then one hears of the purity of Womanhood! No, I can find no justification for co- ads. But then, one must have something to dance with! —College Humor. John: "I haven't slept for days." Nora L.: "Whatsa matter?" John: "I sleep at night." Ed Smartt: "Lets play hide-and-go- seek." Lou Gaines: "Ed, that's a child's game." Ed: "Not the way I play it." The average student in this institution studies about six hours a day, the other six hundred and seventeen do not study at all. T. Cooksey to Mr. Birney: Professor, wauld you mind if I digressed a moment and asked a question about today's assignment? always fond of children," said the old cannibal chief as ha (lowly stirred the soup." Anybody can play a gam* of bridge, but only a cannibal can throw p a hand." "Can't keep a good man down," ighed the missionary, as the cannibal began a search for a mora substantial diat "Well, said the cannibal (with a sigh full of meaning), on seeing a ship-wreck of something or other (I think it was the Salts, Sailors of the Seven Seas), "we won't be hungry today." An oyster met an oyster And they were oysters two. Two oysters met two oysters And they were oysters, too. Four oysters met a pint of milk And they were oyster stew. A baby mole got to feeling big, And wanted to show how ha could dig; So he plowed in the soft, warm dirt Till he hit something hard, and it surely hurt A dozen stars flew out of his head His grandpap picked him up half Young Man," he said, "though your Fata is bone, You can't butt your way through solid stone." This bit of advice is good, I've found: If you can't go over or under, go 'round." Jaced Squoints Wanted: Three tee thing-rings in assorted sizes for Melvin Tweeny, Oscar Nolan, and Starks Green. These bopple-eyed boys have been bottle broke since babyhood. One bottle and they're broke. "Nuzzler" Nolan- four drinks at the last dance and than slumber. at the last d After chasing Mack Douglas and than Donald Aitken over the too well watered lawns of junior college, Nora Louise Calhoun absent-mindedly let slip that her cross-eyes once needed an operation. Hove you noticed? Charles and Eddie Chernosky as well as Warren Lemon are equaled by Mary Ester Waggoner to make a quartet of the world's worst drivers. The boys favorite sport is to flatter the accelerator and travel yon and thither regardless of intersections, and Mesta strews wreckage whenever she parks. Mary Bradly Tuma, Wilma Lindsey, Mary Lou Gaines, Fairfax Moody, and Nora Louise Calhoun gathered with "Suitcase" Donald Aitken and told Mack (Misanthropist) Douglas how to print those Student Associatiin bids. HOWJALIKEM? Test times are here. Lets hope Evelyn Bashara doesn't get writers eramp — on small letters before the test*. One Year Ago (Old Cougar files were used in obtaining this data.)
