A COLLEGE SURVEY
IN GINGL1NG RHYME
By Dorothy McGraw
The school inspectors, walking in
the halls of H. J. C, bumped into a
situation that they thought never
could be. 'Twas a place of education—yes, hut only for a few. The
others in the college had something
else to do.
MARTIN LOWE was found neglecting the hard old studious grind, His
knowledge was profound but of another kind. HILL JETER studies now
and then, but only thinks it's best to
cram and cram for an exam and study
for a test. MAURINE KEACH is
never idle . . - she's busy all the
while; yet Profs and books and tests
too often cramp her style.
VIRGINIA SMITH wonders as she
wanders in the hall . . . How many
of the boys she meets are more than
apt to fall—for her. Nothing should
deter the handsome HAROLD
STEELE from dating up some Junior
College lass . . . unless it is his interest for history dates in class.
LLEWLYN ROSS is dainty as any
Irish rose and she only has to smile
and the Profs think, all the while
she knows . ., . a lot. ADELE DRENKLE doesn't care iE her grades be
good or not. but it seems so queer to
all that she gets a grade for smiling
in the hall.
- WARREN LEMMON has to study,
Isn't it too bad? All the Freshmen
look to him . . . he's such a darling
lad. WILLARD NESMITH? Yes,
we know him. Ohl he studies some,
they say. But he seems to know
enough just to laugh and bluff his
ROSEMARY LAURENCE and
MARY LENNOX study more than
some and there're two things that
they hate . . . being late and chewing gum. KENNETH PHILLIPS can
keep a secret, this is a fact the Profs
know well. When Mr. Harris shouts,
"Don't quote) me!" Kenneth says, "I'll
never tell." "Whether it's good, had
or indifferent," Mr. French will often
say. Then HAROLD WOOD will
whisper hoarsely, T heard mat story
The inspectors left the college with
their spirits dragging low. Each one
shook his hoary head and turning to
another said. "At least there's one
thing that we know . . . ai
students want to learn is the skilful,
unknown art of solving problems of

Take a Chance
Sterling W. Woolsey, a former H.
J. C. student who is now attending
the Texas St^te ' University, sends
the following poem to the Cougar
literary editor. It is a cleverly written
piece of advise on living, and the literary editor says "Thank you for it,
When you're worried—feelin' blue,
Don't know what or how to do—
Got a quiz, don't want to take it;
In a class where you can't fake it,
Bolster up your courage—smile?
It just lasts a little while.
Take a chance!
II the tires are old and worn.
And the motor's shot and torn,
And you've got a high brow date.
And its ride.or get there late-
Crank that flivver—make it run,
If it stops, then have your fun.
Take a chance!
Life's the privilege of living,
Full of taking, full of giving;
Certainly it is uncertain.
Do it now! perhaps the curtain
Will be drawn 'ere you unlimber.
Look it over . . . then remember
Take a chance!

Students Make Sacrifices In
Securing College Education
Personal sacrifice in order to secure
an education is a common thing
among the students at Houston Junior

makes her own expenses, but helps

that is a modern essential lo success
in any of l;fe's activities.
