Transcript PAGE FOUS IHE COUGA.S MANY SPORT EVENTS!DEBATING CLUB CARDED ON JUNIOR COLLEGE'S PROGRAM Track, Tennis, Basket Ball, Boxing, and Wrestling on Sport Calendar COACH PUNS EVENTS With spring just around the corner, baseball spring training begun, track enthusiasts donning the spikes, swimmers and divers pulling out the swim suits and the court followers having their tennis racquets restrung it looks as though the stage is all set for a big sport year at Junior College. Last year's baseball aggregation did not have the proper support. Backed by a few eager students, the diamond outfit kept going till they joined with the unemployed team and helped whip the Houston Police in a recreation game. Providing some convenient practice time can be arranged, J. C. should have Uttle trouble in getting a big call for the baseball team. Not participating in any scheduled meet, last springs thinly clads consisted of only three. Two weight pushers and one hurdler. With a fine track at moments notice, J. C. students are missing something by not organizing a track outfit. Swimming went over in a big way last year and will go over bigger this year. Life saving classes were organized and instructions given in this course. The males boasted a fine swimming team. Elmer Hamilton and Ed Boyles are two fast dash men and A. D. Morgan knocks off notches in the distance swims. San Jacinto walked off with Junior College in the tank meet last year but due to graduation the high school has lost many of it's stars. J. C. ought to be able to take the high school this time. Dates have been set in the tennis tournament when g^mes in the quarter-final and semi-final brackets must be completed or the players forfeit their standing. The tournament has be?n slow in coming along due to the lack of general interest. Bud Steeger and Al Gardner are the two boys putting it over, with Steeger doing a large shara <?f the match making and prize campaigning. The Pi Beta Fraternity will be having its Tennis Tournament soon. John Hill will likely repeat as winner although several of the others have been coming along rapidly. Last year proved that the public likes the pugilistic game. Coach French has worked out a temporary fight card for the initial night with many attractive matches. Always a little slow to get started, the fight game will receive wide acclaim after the /opening night. The wrestling idea is being worked in with several attempts at novelty fights. BUD STEEGER IS HOLDS MEETING! CHOSEN HEAD OF NEW MEN;S CLUB The Houston Junior College Debating club listened to a complicated debate Friday night on the taxation question in which the discussion ranged all the way from Who's Who in America to a Ballyhoo magazine. Jimmy Brinkley and Israel Rabino- witz were the affirmative speakers and Allen Marshall and Tommie cook- sey defended the negative side of the question. The affirmative argued that owners of tangible property is Texas were paying too much of the tax burden and proposed that the sales tax that Governor Ferguson has submitted to the legislature be adopted as a relief to these over-burdened taxpayers. The negative contended that the only way to mend the present excessive tax burden is to have those "seat-warmers" up at the state capitol cut down on the expenditures. They advocate the consolidation or elimination of various bpreaus and many other money grabbing devices. The audience served as judges and the ballot returns indicated a tie. The debaters afterwards decided to debate again with ths same arrangement in the Public Speaking Club Friday, February 10, with the hope that better luck may attend one of the sides.* BOXING TOURNEY TO FEATURE NEW GYM ACTIVITIES GIRL CAGERS MAKE SPLENDID RECORD Playing ten basketball games and losing two is the record of the H. J. C. Girls' Team, the girls, working in a heated game recently held the Rice Institute Girls' Team to a two-point lead. Texns Company's strong team was held after gaining two-point lead. Members of the H. J. C. Team all mode spectacular plays in both games. This season's team, according to I Miss Speiss, coach; is fast and strong. ' It promises to show some fine work in the future. Most of the members had experience last year, and some of the freshmen have shown promise and are proving to bs good material. High-point players for the last 10 games are: Avis Parks and Alice Clair Mc- McVickers and Parks played year along with Lou Gaines and "Cisco" Kellogg. Freshmen members showing up are Ruth Sparks, Jill Jenkins, and La Vame Ferguson. The games lost were to the strongest girls' team of the city. Uniforms of the H. J. C. Girls' Team are short blue trunks and white blue shirts. The money for the uniforms was furnished out of the activity funds Hamp Robinson and Harold Renfro Star Boxers, Say Advance Notices NO DATE~ANNOUNCED "There'll be blood and gore AH over the floor"— These words promise to be a forerunner of the coming H. J. C. Boxing Tournaments which will swing into action soon. According to Coach French the bouts will get under way as soon as the final matchings can be completed and an attractive card drawn up. With the graduation of Lurie, Adams, Green, Spitler, Shaw, and several others, the pugilistic sport suffered a complete let-down during the past semester, compared to the fight-minded year of spring 1932. But now things will hum around the gym and fight nights and students will witness some of the fastest two- fisted bouts ever to be staged by a college. The contestants will have none of the fineness that marks the professional battler, but will be "just a bunch o'- 'c'-ino! pale-okas" primed for the fight and given ihree rounds to ration as a "hard egg". Probable students who will take part in the,coming matches are: Hamp Robinson, 126 pounds. No previous ring experience. Strength attributed to throwing sides of beef around his father's cattle company. Has a style all his own, packs a hard right wallop and does not know the meaning of yellow. The fewer females in the gym, the better Robinson fights. Harold Renfro, heavyweight. Sleeps on nail? and boasts a Weismuller physique. Worked on boat last summer to build bulging muscles. Better on defensa than offense and takes advantage of the slightest opening or break. Any student whose names do not appear in the "once over" above and who arc interested in taking part in the fights, leave name and weight with Coach French. If any past boxing experience please state so there will b no one-sided or pushover matches. Wrestling as well as boxing will be included on the cards. Those wishing to rough and tumble, free-for-all, pillow fight, butt with your heads or any kind of novelty battle see the coach.

BILL TELL— (Continued from Page 1) "I don't believe I'm going anywhere at this hour of the night friend" But Bill's uniform was on the bedpost, and the sinister ro<fc in the hands of those 'joking* beer barons threatened a lot more tlian did a police protector, harmless in its holer, also on the bed. So Bill squeezed his foundations back into their unwelcome shipping crates, and did as he was told. He also noticed that it was funny but Jill wasn't home. When he arrived at that little shack i the Billygoat hill, he knew the reason why. She was up there. . . . Bound to a tree. . . . helpless . . . guarded by four gunmen. All four as tight as the sheepskin on a bass drum, but Don had told them just to guard her. . . . She hadn't been harmed. "Bill", she shouted when she saw him. "JilL" he answered her, "So they've got you too, eh? Well, Jill, whatever happens, it's all my fault. Maybe I am just and old fool, but I believe that the Lord will take good care of such fools, . . ." "I'm with you, dad," Jill whispered, and that was the first time he remembered that she called him 'Dad'. "Sure is a cute kid," Don interrupted, "Take a drink Bill?" "Naw, rat," Bill retorted. "I guess you will before the night's over." "You can't bluff me, Don Mascara, re told you there'll be no beer, gangs, or mobs on my beat, and that still stands. . . . Don't you believe I know you. You can't bluff me, I tell you, and you know better than to harm my daughter. . . . Why, why, the whole police force, and the whole Under New Management PHILLIPS' CAFE SAN JACINTO CAFE Try Us for Sandwiches and Dinner ALMEDA PHARMACY Phono Hadley 8194 Holman at LaBranch population of the American nation would hate your guts. . . . Why your wouldn't be worth a half cent even to any other crook in the world if you harmed her and, ..." "Wait a minute, copper," Don broke i, "Who said I was gonna hurt the dame. ... If there is any hurting to do, you'll be the man to do it." "Me? . . . Man you're drunk!" "Not yet, Bill, but I will be." "Why I don't understand you," Bill pkaded. "What do you mean I'm gonna hurt Jill?" 'Well, your name is Bill Tell, ain't it?" "Sure. . , , What's that got to do th it?" "Well, tonight you're gonna have to 'c up to that name. You're gonna have to do a modern William Tell, and I your life and your daughter's life depends upon the way you do it. Ya this package of smokes? . . . Well. Mr. William Tell, they are gonna be put on your daughter's head and you are gonna take one shot from 40 yards, and knock 'em off. . . . I'm a good sport. If you do it I won't bother you again. If you hit your daughter that's your hard luck and I'll then try my luck in shooting the cigarettes off your head in six shots. You have caused a lot of trouble in the past year, Bill, but you still can free yourself from this mess by drinking with me." "No thanks, Den," Bill commented with much exertion, "But may I ask where Jill's boyfriend is?" "Oh we took care of him, copper," Don responded, "He won't bother our little show." "When does it begin," Bill asked, "Let's get it over with." "Okay, copper," Don answered, pouring himself another drink. "And if I do it you'll let us both go and not bother us again." "If you can take my void for it, Bill." "I"ll take it, Don, where is the pistol?" "You'll get that in plenty of tims." "Take good aim, Dad," Jill shouted. I'm not a bit afraid." And one of the confederates placed a brand nsw package of cigarettes on her head. "Hit 'cm on top Dad," she punned, "So they can still be smoked. If you put a hole through their middles they won't draw!" Then they handed William Tell a pistol with one shell in th^_ barrel. 'Take a drink with me, Bill?" Don asked, "Last chance." Hell no!" Bill shot back resigned to his fate, but determined to do his best. His temples strained as he ned. His feet hurt. "You may fire when ready Giidley," Don joked, half drunk. And with the help of God in heaven, William Tell, Officer Bill Tell to you, mint, a good packages of smokes. Jill fainted. Nice shot old man, couldn't have done better myself," Don congratulated, "You don't need to worry about me or drinks or Jill anymore. You Bill took his shoes off. "You don't need to worry about me on." Bill finally spoke up, "The strain is too much for me. I'm reigning from the force. . . . Say, before Jill comes to, pour me a drink, willya?" i Metropolitan Now RUTH CHATTERTON "FRISCO "jENNY" Coming Saturday CECIL De MILLE'S 'SIGN OF THE CROSS" QUEEN- CHAS. BICKFOED HELEN CHANDLER "VANITY STREET' 10 to 1—15« PEN POINTS— (Continued from Page 1) iiould be complimented. One important accomplishment of the term has been the new attitude established by students in regard to weekly assembly programs. Students have conducted themselves i a most complimentary way while attending assembly and have also, shown that they can be a credit to Houston Junior College rather than a hindrance. Mr. Miller is to be complimented on his excellent programs throughout the term. He has devoted much time and thought to these weekly assembly " meetings and has appealed to every type of student by presenting programs of variety. There have been few failures reported this term and much better work has been done by the students according to- faculty members. Evidently students feel that during " these depressing times it is a very good idea to get the full value of each course — not only because wasting , money is becoming obsolete, but because a good education is necessary to meet the requirements of the day. Steps in the right direction have been taken this term in regard to the forming of a college glee club. It is regrettable that the co-eds did not * show enough interest to make the club a mixed chorus. However, the boys doing splendid work and will . bring honor to our college, of that we're sure. Let us hope that in time the girls will be able to form a similar club. The new term will bring many new students. So to the old students let » us remind you that it's your duty to -how them that Houston Junior Col- kge is glad to have them and that it takes the co-operation and help of each student to make this college an ever forward institute. Welcome, new students. Here's hoping you grow to love and respect our college as much as those who've gone before you. LIGGETT'S DRUG STORE Chesterfields.
