OUR SPORTING WORLD
When Lefoy Melcher was a small
lad, he read many advertisements in
the paper concerning alcohol rub-
downs. Melcher believed that by rub-
ting his muscles with alcohol they
would expand and get stronger. So he
bought a large bottle, and now spends
the entire day rubbing the fluid over
his body. And the big laugh is that
Melcher claims that he gained abnormal strength overnight.
Golf Is Popular
This golf tournament has all the
earmarks of a first class affair. Bud
Steeger has quite a number of names
on the entry list and if only half this
crowd plays it will make a tine tournament. The added name of E. V. Stough
should be a note of interest. This
Stough lad is quite accomplished in athletics. He is one of the leading sailors
at the Houston Yacht Club and handles
a boat like a veteran. His swimming
is not short of sensational, while his
diving is a smooth exhibition of grace
and case. Stough has entered in the
tennis tournament and we prophesy
that his name will be in the upper
bracket when everything is over.
On Ed Boyles' first day in physical
education Coach French asked him if
he took a shower bath? Ed turned
around to the coach with a look of surprise on his face and asked, "No, why
:s there one missing?"
Girls Should Know
This writer plans on asking 10 popular girls in the school 10 simple
questions about football, and will publish it in next issue of "Our Sporting
World". This should prove interesting
to see if the girls understand what it's
all about at a football game. Watch
for that story. The answers ought to
be good for many laughs.
Vernon Scott' has his eye on the golf
tournament. "Scatty" is quite adept
with the clubs as well as the saxophone. When members of the orchestras that played at the Rice Roof this
summer were hunting for a little competition on the links, Vernon gave
them all the competition they could
ask for and a little extra.
H. V. Baker is another sailor hailing
from the Houston Yacht Club. Baker
figured prominently in the races held
at the club throughout the summer.
Picking a winner in the girls' tennis
tournament appears to be a toss-up.
The entry list is large and many of the
femmes are accomplished players. Who
will win is just a guessing matter. It's
a good bet that some unknown will
carry off high honors.
Buse Makes Good
We are all thrilled to learn that
Charles Buse, last year graduate of
H. J. C, is now recognized as one of
the leading prospects of the University
of Texas' tennis team. ■
Charles' ability at tennis has developed so rapidly that he has aroused
much interest and curiosity, and many
who have seen him express the opinion that he is a genius. Those who
are familiar with the tennis talent at
Austin can easily imagine what Charles
is making a showing against.
Buses' styla of play closely resembles
that of Vines, for his drives are deep
and fast. When pressed for points, he
follows fast flat serves to the net for
smashes. His vollying is exceptionally
accurate in finding corners.
When questioned, Charles explained
that his recent success in deieating
ranking players of tue university is due
to serious application and determination. *
Buse is an active all around sporw-
man. Though he does not play football, he attends all the big games. Besides this, he is an accomplished dancer.
Ask any attractive girl to explain why
his nickname is "Gigolo Buse." By the
way, many wonder if Charles is
sponsible for the enlarged enrollment
of girls at "Texas" this year. So you
see he has other hobbies.
Swimming is not getting the proper
esponse that it should. With a fine
pool at their disposal, the classes are
iglecting to take advantage of this
opportunity. The winters in Houston
mild and short and before soon
another J. C. tank team will be organ-
zed. Two capable instructors are there
to help in any way possible. Take a
plunge now and then, it's free, and
swimming is one of" the most healthy,
muscle building sports there is.
Former H. J. C. Students
Gaining Recognition at
Various Senior Schools
Harry Matthews, former J. C. star
athlete, is on the rampage up at Southwestern College where he is now attending school. The football mentor
tells us that "Dog" has played in every
e and has figured vitally in his
team's victories. But on the side "Dog"
seriously turning in some fine
grades .especially in German. He hopes
to conquor this language in short or-
so he will be able to open an old
fashioned German beer palace as soon
prohibition is a thing of the past.
You cannot be a "big shot" in Georgetown unless you are a "frat" man, so
Dog" has hooked up with the Pi
Kappa Alpha fraternity and is a charter
Charles Buse is another former "cellmate" who is making good at sports
away from Houston. Buse is attend-
Texas University and has entered
the tennis world with much interest.
Buse plays with some of the ranking
stars at Texas and his game has been
improving nicely. Under the fine
tutorship of the university tennis
:oach, Buse is rapidly bringing his
game up to championship caliber, and
who knows but what he may he "one
of them things" in Texas University
