T. DAVIS SPEAKS Richard G. Cox of Mississipp Is New President of Association Meeting for the first time west of Fort Worth, the American Association of Junior Colleges held its eleventh annual convention at Berkeley, California, November 18 and 19, 1930, according to "The Pony Express" of Sacramento Junior College. Approximately two hundred junior college executives, representing both public and private junior colleges in all sections of the United States, attended tho conclave. Dean J. Thomas Davis of John Tar- leton College, Stephenville, Texas, the only representative of the Lone Star State, addressed the convention on "Junior College Activities in Texas." "There are forty-seven junior colleges now operating in Texas," he said. (Continued on Page 3) HARRIS LECTURES ON IDEAL PERSON . Gives English Class Lecture On Characteristics of Four Square Man "Personality is that magnetic outward expression of the inner life, which radiates courage, courtesy, and kindness," said Professor H. W. Harris in a lecture to his English classes recently. His subject was "The Four Square Man." It is the opinion of Professor Harris, expressed in his lecture, that personality can be improved until It gradually approaches the ideal, this attracting rather than repelling one's associates. - "Personality such as this is a product of (he positive qualities. It makes a man a leader instead of a follower," said Mr. Harris. "There are three phases of personality," he continued. "They.are the physical, mental, and the moral or spiritual phases. Among the qualities of good personality are a pleasing appearance, pleasant conversation, friendliness, originality, open-minded ness, dependability, tact, decision and perseverance." In closing his address Mr. Harris said: "It is my belief that by the use of the will we can change our desires or motives and thus over a period of years improve our personality from the inside out." PRESBYTERIANS DEFEAT COACH FRENCH'S CAGERS Coach French gave all promising basketball aspirants a chance to show their wares Thursday evening, January 8, as the Second Presbyterian smooth working quintet gave them a great battle, winning 25-6. The Cougars, due to breaking train* ing during the holidays, just couldn't get started. Second Presbyterians' well-oiled machine displayed worlds of defensive power, which the Cougars failed to penetrate. The Cougars have some promising material In Branham, Davis, Parker and Viebig with which to build a quintet around our lettermen, Nesmith and Matthews. The Presbyterians have some players of merit in Wax and Calhoun, who are the cogs of the machine. "How did John take it when May gave him his ring back?" "He took it to the nearest pawnshop." —Carolina Buccaneer. Pa Perkins Beats Einstein's Theory Prof. Einstein, the eminent scientist, at last has some real competition, none other than Pa and Ma Perkins of Punkin Center. Here they are: "Whats' this. Pa, that everybody's talking about this here feller Isenbine, or Einstein or somethin'?" "I dunno. Ma, 'ceptin' he's supposed to know more'n anybody else in the world about relatives." "Huh, I'll bet a cooky he don't know half as much as I do about 'em—especially since that time your cous'n Amos and his ten kids visited us. When they finally did leave I could have written books about relatives myself.—and they wouldn't have been joke books either." "Oh, I dunno, Ma. Seems to me I mind the time your cousin Emmy and her four boys spent a year here with us one summer. When they left I could have told E'nstein things about relatives that would make him go back home without wait in' to pack his other shirt." "Is that so. I'll have you understand. Zebediah Perkins, that my relatives is the cream of society." "And if I had my way them boys would be whipped cream. Be that as it may, there's one feller in this country that's a. heap more famous than this here Einstein." "Who's that Pa?" "Why, Col. Limberger, of SOPHS HELP CHARITY AND FRESHMAN BALL Sophomore charities. Freshman ball, and charity collections came in for their share of discussion in the Sophomore class meeting held Wednes- y, January 7. Bill Jeter, vice-president, acted as chairman in the ab- nce of Bob McCullough, president. Most outstanding in the list of old business was the uncollected charity money. In the December meeting, the lass decided to require of every member a contribution of either twenty-five or fifty cents. The Star of Hope mission will receive the money. Gadys Jacobs, a Freshman, made a special trip to the upperclassmen to see that the Freshman Ball was duly discussed. Sheets of paper were passed for the boys to make a generous response in disposing of bids. How. ', It seems still more results are expected. Just to make the program a little unusual, Smith Garrison called for a collection of the above mentioned charity money. Those who did not "pay off" were to arrange with the secretary to do so. Mr. Miner, sponsor, made the an nouncement that in the next meeting a definite step will be made toward adopting the long-planned Sophomore class constitution. PEP GIRLS WILL GIVE KID PARTY TONIGHT Entertaining the "blue" team the members of the "white" team of the Cougar Collegians Pep Club will sponsor a kid party in the gym Wed. nesday, January 14, at 10 p.m. Only pep club members and their dates are to be present. Kid games and dancing afterward: will be the evening's feature. In order to enlist "honest-to good ness" fine pep club members the Cougar Collegians sponsored a membership campaign. Hazel Taylor, club president, appointed Lucille cafcalas, captain of the "blue" team, and Nora Louise Calhoun, captain of "white" team. STEVENS ADVISES QUICK TRIAL TO END LAWLESSNESS District Attorney Addresses Student Body at Regular Assembly Meet JURIES ARE INADEQUATE Favors Training Schools for Officers, and Reformed Court Practice "As long as we have human nature, bodily disease, mental infirmity, and poverty, we will have crime," declared District Attorney O'Brien Stevens to H. J. C. students Wednesday, December 17 while speaking on the subject of Law Enforcement. "I cannot propose a cure-all" Mr. Stevens continued. "If our problem of law enforcement is to create fear of the law in the hearts of those who have no respect for government, and if the present machinery of enforcement has failed, what is the remedy?" Among other things advocated as an answer to this question by Mr. Stevens are a state training school lor officers, a state constabulary, and a state auto drivers' license law, also certain changes in our system of (Continued on Page 3) HARRY MATTHEWS IS GRID FAVORITE W.

Tourist (in Yellowstone Park): Those Indians sure have a bloodcurdling yell. Guide: Yes—everyone of them is a college graduate. —Pennsylvania Punch Bowl. COUGAR GETS BOUQUET Your Cougar is becoming quite well known. From an exchange on the Pacific coast, the Pacific College, we find the following item concerning the Houston Junior College publica- From the far South comes The Cougar, one of the most delightful publications we have yet received. It is edited and published by the journalism students of the Houston Junior College, Houston, Texas. The Literary Forum with its peppy short stories and plea sing poems is the outstanding feature of the paper. Nournish- ment for Nuts, Cougar Razz, and the drawing Slippery Slime also help to make The Cougar very popular with our students. Angry Door Socks Innocent Freshie Students of H. J. C, listening respectfully to most of the holiday tales, are slightly dubious over the story of a very belligerent and obtrusive door, which, according to one of their classmates, J. C. Snyder, came and met him as he started to bed one night in a dark room. It' circumstantial evidence is to be trusted, it must have been a swinging door which, after the first assault, kept coming bark and lambasting him until he was dragged to safety. Although convinced of the veracity of Mr. Snyder's nature, we are a bit inclined to believe that th's is one of those cases where the victim is unable to recollect what really did happen. What class of holiday excitement this might belong to we are undecided. It may have been that eternal one of mistaking the other fellow's girl for your own; the common trouble of vicious hallucinations, where two telephone posts appear in the place of one and prove themselves immovable and undodgeable: the troublesome trait of manly courage wherein the young man attempts to buy tickets to a very popular midnight preview at 11:30 that even'ng; or it may have been, as Mr. Snyder said, PENNANTS SOLD BY COUGARCOLLEGIANS Beginning Monday, December 1 the Cougar Collegians Pep Club sponsored a sale of H. J. C. pennants. A small deposit will be required upon placing an order, according to Mrs. Bender, dean of women. Orders may be given to Hazel Tay lor, club president, or Mrs. Bender. Pennant, prices; range from seventy five cents up.
