With the number of graduates from the nation's universities mounting annually, the high school graduate is finding it more and more difficult to obtain a position in the business world, and, having struggled into one, finding It harder still to advance. Not a great many years ago the chief requirement to secure a job was experience—the man who quit school at the fourth grade, and by so doing gained a few more years' experience in his line of work, was nine times out of ten, the man who filled the vacancy. Today, a high school education is the basic requirement in securing even the most menial position, and so strict Is the application of this requirement that it almost amounts to: no high school education—no job. But this standard is not stationary; with the rest of the business world It Is progressing upward and onward. Already the larger corporations are demanding college graduates for numerous, and not above the ordinary, positions. In Houston, where a large university supplies nearly any demand for college graduates, the mere high school young men and women are frowning perceptibly over their chances for a successful future. That the present day trend Is thoroughly understood, is evidenced by the thousands who seek college degrees before making their debut into the world of business. Not every one, however, can devote four years of his life to attending university. There are those who, graduated from high school, are forced by sheer necessity to eke out their own existence. To these the Houston Junior College offers the greatest of opportunities, for while working during the day they can study regular college courses at night. The young man or woman taking advantage of this opportunity will not stand by to watch the university graduate forge ahead, but will be in line for advancement, will rank equally with the best. conferred by the American Business Club and we hope that we may prove to its members that their faith and Interest in us has been more than justified. Listen, Folks Any dumb-bell knows that a person can't eat his cake and have it, too. Yet that's what it looks as If some of us are trying to do. Not only our own, but the other fellows' also. All of us who were here last year remember the repeated appeals made to students to observe certain parking rules in the driveways approaching the building. And how, when these appeals were not heeded, the school authorities were finally forced to forbid parking on these drives altogether. That's exactly what is going to happen again this year if some of us don't wake up and have a little respect for the other fellow. In the first place, you wouldn't go to visit a friend and drive your car right through his flower beds and on to his lawn in order to get closer to the door, would you? You are being just as discourteous when you park on the lawn of the campus. And when you park your car on a street you are careful to leave enough room for others to pass, aren't you. Why not be as thoughtful on the Junior College driveways? No one of us has any right to thing that HIS wishes alone should be considered, regardless of the inconvenience to which others are put, or, sometimes, the actual harm done them. If you can't find a parking space near the entrance, don't park on the lawn. Don't block up the driveways. Drive on. That'3 just your hard luck. Maybe It will be better next time. (Maybe you were late to class anyway). Be a good sport and think about the other fellow. And if you are too selfish to want to do that, at least have common senso enough to safeguard your own interest. If these regulations continue to be violated yon won't even stand a chance of getting to park in a convenient place. The drives will be barred. And not only will those who observed regulations be inconvenienced, YOU yourself will be! Think about it. THE COI-G AR CLUBS ORATORICAL SOCIETY Coach Harris called a meeting of the Oratorical Society on September 30 for the purpose of having the association elect its officers for the coming term.

Maybe you think "Coach was popping off the other night in the auditorium during assembly, but you can take it from me those boys fought like they had their backs to the wall. Now, if this means anything to the student body at all, why not have a coupla' dozen out to see the games! You might say that the team was fighting for something that was dear to every one of them, that thing being the love of the game. The Student Association will hold The success of a school depends almost entirely upon its faculty, which assures the continued success of Hous-" n's own Junior College. In order to keep step with an increasing student body, the college this year has made an addiion of eight new members to its teaching staff. They are: Miss Julia Idesou, holder of a librarian's certificate from the University of Texas, who has been librarian in the Houston Public Li- brary for 25 years. She is continuing her splendid work at the Junior College where she gives a course in library science twice a week; Mr. Vatf Zee, M. A., Chicago University, instructor of biology.

The Houston Junior College students are deeply appreciative of the kindness of the American Business Club in offering an annual scholarship to the most deserving student of the college. In taking an initial step in establishing a fund of this kind here, they are giving evidence of their faith in the Junior College—of their belief in the worthiness of its students. This fact alone will serve to make us strive harder, for to be believed In is one of the most inspiring incentives to work. All the larger colleges and universities have such scholarships, and we feel that it is a step upward for the Houston Junior College to be endowed with one this early In its career. Doubtless, the spirit of these business men in instituting a scholarship fund for the Junior College will encourage others to establish similar ones, and It will not be many years before we may expect to see several scholarships being offered each year, to girls as well as to boys. We are indeed proud of the honor Attend the Games When the Junior College eleven took their positions for the kickoff in their initial tilt with the St. Marys University, a yell which could hardly have reached the players bench, rose from the grandstand. Upon looking into the seating section, one could see some fifty or seventy-five students seated near the top while a few of more enthusiastic nature adorned the lower rail. A college football aggregation was there with the purpose of carrying our colors to victory, and establishing a reputation other than scholastic for our institution. So why shouldn't we attend the games and let them know that they have a student body back of them—one that appreciates their work and is willing to support every effort? In the St. Mary's game Coach Smith displayed his ability in handling a football team, and each individual showed excellent form, but that inspiration a rooting squad offers was missing. Had it been present, the score would probably have been much larger than it was. In such a case it was not necessary, but we will find ourselves competing with keen opposition, and the final score will no doubt hinge on the efforts of our students. So let's each do our share by being at every game and showing the public that we not only have a real football team, but a real student body with that win or die spirit. Student Activity By George Lanaux The benefits of attending college are two-fold. First there is the broadening of the mental faculties by the absorption of higher education, and, secondly, but on a par with the first, there is the broadening of character and personality produced by college spirit. The Houston Junior College Is very young as institutions of higher learning go, and consequently it lacks the tradition, the background, that is so essential to college spirit. Today the students look forward to those traditions which to the classes of older Institutions are looked back Upon. In order to get the most out of Ju- HONOR SOCIETY The Houston Junior College Honor Society, which is sponsored by Mrs. Soule, held its first business meeting on October 17. The Honor Society is an organization whose membership consists of those who have attained a high grade average at the college. The schedule suggested but not definitely decided upon for the requirements for membership is as follows: For all students taking five courses the maximum number of B's Is 3. The students taking four courses the maximum number of B's is 2. Those taking three courses, the maximum number of B's is 1, while students taking two courses must make all A grades. Students taking less ,6han two courses are not eligible for membership.

The Cougar's Collegians, formerly known as the Pep Club, have elected officers and announced their plans for the ensuing year. Ruth Kidd will preside as president, Alice McCullough as secretary and Lois Dawson as treasurer. Under the direction of Miss Mackey and Mrs. Bender the club has selected a new uniform, consisting of a blue skirt with a white shirt and a blue and white blazer. At the call meeting held Friday night, Margaret Boyett was appointed reporter for the club. A membership committee was also formed consisting o." Lisabelle Crittenden, chairman; Mary Sadler and Sophie Zielinski. A committee was also appointed to attend to the selection of uniform stationery, stickers, pins, belts and megaphones for the school. On this committee are Margaret Boyet^, chairman; Josephine Maske, and Marie Coppin. nior College—in order to hasten the day of traditions—in order to get the most out of the school spirit part of the college, each student must take a most active part in every school activity. The dances given throughout the school year should be attended by every one. and the whole student body should turn out for the various athletic events. If you haven't purchased your student activity ticket as yet, do it today, and don't merely buy it and let it collect cobwebs between the leaves of a book—use It every time you have a chance—remember that it's essential to getting the most out of your college education—remember that, besides the personal advantage you are gaining, you are helping HJC tD build up its traditions, to make its college life what college life ought to be. Jeff Davis' great team last year comes Weldon "Lefty" Morris. Then from A. & M. we have Nesmith and Matthews. From Galveston, Ball High School, comes John Driscoll. From away up in Michigan comes "Christy" Christenson. Others on the squad are Shaw, Weaver, Powell, Eaton, Bullock, Fleming, Lowe, Peterson, Dees, Kalmans, Groenlund, Galbreath, Donald Lang: "I think I'll run back up the street to that cafe and get some oxtail soup." Helen Allnoch—"Oxtail? Not for me! That's goin' too far back for soup." Mr. Miller—"What is Boston noted for?" C. R. Yeager-—"Boots and shoes." Mr. Miller—"And Chicago?" C. R.—"Shoots and booze.'"

Bender Dramatic Club elected the following officers at its first regular meeting, October 10: Robert Moechal, president; Mary Sadler, vice president; Grace McDonald, secretary-treasurer; James Newton, reporter.

C. within the next two weeks and all students are urged to be pressnt when this meeting is called. All the officers of the association will be elected from the student body. Watch the H. J. C. bulletin board for further announcement regarding this meeting.
