After trying unsuccessfully to locate Kermit Dees, meager information was obtained from students. One described Dees as a tall blonde. Someone else claimed that he was short and a brunette. "He's from Oklahoma," explained one lad. "Oh, no, he's from Jeff Davis," piped another. So Kermit, please set us wise and speak up for yourself. John "Turk" Aleo.

Red Porter was the outstanding star in the Sam Houston Teachers Reserve-Cougar gamo at Huntsville. Red, as his name implies, is "redheaded." reason enough for the way he is burning up football fields. Bill Jeter needs no introduction. BiT played with the Junior College last year, and proved popular in athletics as well as with the student body. The departure of a certain blonde miss from the corridors of the school may tend to give Bill more time for athletics. For those who are new at J.

Louis played four years of football in high, and, according to reports, is doing excellent work for the Cougars. Sir Christenson is single. Weldon Morris, better known as Lefty, and for three years co-captain of Jeff Davis football teams, Is rated as one of the Junior College stars. His work in the two games played this season was far above average. Another JEFFERSON Davis star, Harry D. Matthews, who spent last year at A. and M., was feeling very "collegiate" in a pair of brand new knickers when interviewed. Harry ! Four Hundred Volumes and Periodicals Added to Shelves The Houston Junior College Library, which is now located on the first floor, has received 100 new books and periodicals during the past four months. The new books have been p'aced on the shelves and are being classified and catalogued by author and subject as rapidly as time allows.

Due to a habit of running wild on the gridiron, Gilbert McLean was monfckered "Outlaw." Yet ferocious Outlaw, is timid William when around the fairer sex. Wallace and McLean are neighbors in Rosebud, where Outlaw played football In high school. Add another name to the scroll of famous redheads. This time that of Willard Nesmith, a former Heights lad. Take Clara Bow's "It." and Dempsey's righting ability and you have Willard. Farrell Wallace, the b'onde Hercules from Rosebud, has been a valuable asset to the Cougars for the past two seasons. A medal should be awarded Farrell for his courtesy in answering questions about the team. A disappjointed blonde, but not disappointing, is John Lehde from Caldwell. (The name is pronounced Lady.) John attended A. and M. and Blinn Memorial before entering Junior College. In football circles, Nick Peet is always goiven a prominen part. Nick is an old-timer at Junior College, and has B friendly smile for everyone. A dark coniplexioned boy always smiling— that's Nick. R. B. Weaver, another flower from the Bouquet City, Is a snapdragon with the ladies. R. B.'s work has been great. eH gained the fundamentals of football playing the game In high school back home. Big things come in small packages. For example, we introduce Donald j Norton C. Long, a sophomore at Junior College. Conversation was impossible due to the fact that Donald's "blonde weakness" was passing down the hall, so those who wish may find out the dope about his past by themselves. Martin Lowe modestly confesses that he owes his "36" figure to the fact that he "reaches for a Lucky instead of a sweet." Lowe and "Able" Autry call themselves "The Gold Dust Twins." Autry, by the way, gained j his speed on the gridiron by "Walking 1 a Mile for A Camel." Autry is a | young hopeful from Caldewll, where he played football for four years. "Everything in Season" is the motto of an engaging young fellow from Kosse whose name is Allen Eaton. Allen plays football, basketball, tennis, and baseball.

The committee should have the right to refuse the admittance of any person or persons whom they deem undesirable. We believe that these dances will stimulate school activity and help to bring our students into a closer, more unified body. Many of the present students have expressed the same opinion as we have stated. We hope that this petition letter will meet with your approval and would like to learn the outcome of your decision in the near future.
