Transcript THE COUGAR 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 way. 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 another way.' 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 the heart." The Cougar Collegians—The Houston Junior College Girls* Pep Club 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, Sterling": 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! DO YOV READ THE ADVERTISEMENTS? Do you read the advertisements in the COUGAR? Representatives of the COUGAR have promised their clients that advertising in this paper "pulls." Help them to make good on this promise. COUGAR advertisers deserve your support for they have shown the college that they have faith in the institution and its publication by making it possible for the paper to meet its financial obligations. Give them an opportunity to serve you and prove that their service and merchandise is more desirable. Be a booster for your own college by helping to boost other boosters! Pep Clnb Xmas Box "There is a real Santa Claus," thought a poor family when Christmas cheer was extended them Tuesday, December 24, by the Cougar Collegians. Betty Tinsley, provsion chairman, and Hazel Taylor, president, presented a needy family with a bountiful basket of groceries, fruit, and candies. Club members supplied the provisions, and the basket was prepared by a committee consisting of Betty Tinsley, Hazel Taylor, Dorothy McGraw, and Louise Morgan. Cougar Creeps Did you ever see FRED COLLIN'S standing excuse (for tardiesl? It used to be a 1924 Overland touring. FAY GENE LAURENCE loves her friends, especially CARLTON THOMPSON. She has no enemies (among the male sex). MILTON MOFF1TT, quiet, bushy- haired gorilla, smokes his incinerator, loves his women, and doesn't use his hip flask. EVERETT KENDALL certainly doesn't mind a lot of work. Well, boys, if you haven't met IRENE SPEISS you're just too late- according to our personal observations. "Has Anybody Seen My Gal?"— which one. SLIME GILDER? Has anyone met ELIZABETH SINCLAIR? She's not giving the boys a break. HAROLD STEELE believes the Sophs are too lenient with the Freshmen. "I've reformed since Terry left. —Maurine Edminster. "Ow, HAROLD. MEYNIER! IT hurts." 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 College. One student makes a 25-mile trip IB fair weather or foul to attend his classes. A sophomore co-ed, not only makes her own expenses, but helps support her grandmother. Others work in department stores, schoolrooms, and offices—some even sacrificing everything except actual necessities in order to secure the training that is a modern essential lo success in any of l;fe's activities. We Wonder If— All the food that is available was to be made into little pills, would Martin Lowe reduce. Al of the girls of H. J. C. were to leave would Howard Graham, James Morris, Warren Lemon, Joe Peabody and Fred Starck form a Bachelor's club? Mr. Dupre cooks his own meals while his wife is away. (Is there any wonder he has felt bad of late?) There was not a cafeteria on the third floor, what would some of these "Fish" do for a pastime? Harwood Stanaker did not have lovely blonde curls, would ne still be a ladies man? Mary Lenox didn't have gum to pop in Journalism class what would she find to do? Soph Bukowski really gets anything out of his French in Psychology class. Mr. Miner ever gets hungry between You have seen the little brunette* with the winsome smile, that rushes madly down the hall with Howard Graham so often. You have noticed the masculine eye* turned in "Jerry's" direction? Can we blame them? Mr. Harris can make debaters out, of these Fish out here. Any one knows who it Is that says, "Aw right, Hon." Any one has heard Willard Nes- mith's new by-word. CAMPUS NEWS Harry D. Matthews 2218 Lee Street Voted the most popular Football Player on the Campus.
