Transcript THE COUGAR COUGARS CONQUER ST. MARYS GRIDMEN Invades Fall Before Charging Attack of Locals A scrappy aggregation of grldsters, with a fighting spirit that will make the name "Cougars" feared by local opponents, showed excellent form when they trounced the St. Mary's University eleven, 25 to 7, at Rice field Saturday, Sept. 28. The La Porte invaders played a steady game, but could not buck the charging attack of the heavier and more experienced lads from Junior College. Both the offensive and defensive playing centered around two of Coach Smith's most valuable boys, "Red" Porter and Louis Dee. Of the two, Dee was undoubtedly the most outstanding. Time and again this husky fullback would charge through the enemy's defense for yardly gains before being brought to the earth by two or three opposing tacklers. When he did not carry the oval, he did his share in blocking would-be tacklers and clearing the way for the fleet Porter. Sharing honors with Dee and Porter were "Lefty" Morris, noted center from Jeff Davis, and McClain, who exhibited an unusual amount of speed. Eaton and Lehde shared the defensive honors for the Cougars. The manner in which this pair smeared the opposing backs, speaks well for the fu- The local lads could not get going in the first few minutes of play, and had it not been for a penalty Father Leahy's boys would have scored shortly after the kickoff. Richter of St. Mary's was down the field like a flash to recover the ba'l after Jeter had fumbled. The Cougar line held and the Saints were forced to punt. The ball hit Jeter and bounced free. St. Mary's recovered on the five-yard line and Jonas skirted end for what appeared to be a touchdown. It was in this play that the invaders were found guilty of holding. From then on the Junior College eleven settled down and played real football. Jones, the outstanding player for St. Mary's, was responsible for their only townchdown, when he intercepted a b'ind pass from Porter and galloped 58 yards before being down 3d on the Cougar four-yard line. After two plays, Pieri plunged over guard for the score. Jones kicked goal. "Red" Porter scored two of the Junior College touchdowns by plunging through tackle after Dee had helped him parade the oval through the enemy's territory. To Louis Dee we must credit the longest and most beautifully run gallops of the affray. On three occasions he refused to be stopped until he had torn off 30, 33 and 19 yard runs. McClain showed a pretty bit of broken field running in the second quarter, when he received a pass from Porter and raced 47 yards for the last touchdown of the first half. The speed he exhibited marked him as the fastest of his teammates, which is saying quite a lot. The last score of the game came early in the fourth quarter, when Porter carried the ball 28 yards to put it on the St. Mary's 11-yard line. Dee hit center for seven yards and Porter carried it over. Dee drop-kicked the extra point. OFFICE IS VERITABLE WHAT-NOT OF INFO Mrs. Bender's office, room 111, is a combination employment agency, lost and found bureau, and telephone booth. That is, in its right moments. It also doubles for a clubroom, information bureau, study hall, and general meeting place. And yet they call it—"Mrs. Bender's office." Mrs. Bender says that she wants the students to feel free to use her office as much as they like, and she also wants them to come in at any time to talk to her. ATTENTION NEW STUDENTS: Mrs. Bender is not just being polite; she really likes people and is always willing to talk and listen. It's up to FROM THE SIDELINE Martin Lowe. Well, folks, the writer makes his debut as a member of the Cougar staff, and if, at any time, he can be of service to any member of HJC, p'.ease take the liberty to call on him. HJC 25—St. Mary's 7. HJC 14—Sam Houston Reserves 0. HJC 20—Westminster 7. A clean slate and let's hope those huskies, who so valiantly carry the blue and white, will keep it clean. Coach C B. Smith's 1929 edition of the Cougars is one of the strongest Junior College teams in the state aud has reached this position of prominence through the untiring efforts of as good a coach as Texas University can produce. That reminds me—I was talking to Ox Higgins the other day. Now, Ox used to tear opposing lines apart for Texas U., and tells me that Coach Smith was as good an athlete as ever donned the Orange and the White. Who would think that: Lefty Morris, bashful frosh vice- president would make a speech. "Double Ugly" Porter was a leading "Nickodemus" Peet would go to class for a change. Sheik Galbreath like red heads. Shuxte Matthews could make a blonde. Teb Warden was jealous of Shuxte. Contry Brown, a new addition to the Cougar, hails from Port Arthur, and what a whale of a game this boy did p'ay for the Yellow Jackets last year. He was one of the outstanding tackles in the state and should become a stellar performer for the Cougars. SMITH'S GRIDSTERS DEFEAT RESERVES Cougars Show Form to Win Over Sam Houston Branch Fighting a grim battle to kick over the dope bucket, Coach C. B. Smith's Cougars succeeded in clawing their way to a 14 to 0 victory at Huntsville, Monday, October 7, at the expense of the Sam Houston Reserves. With "Red" Porter running at quarter, the game was an interesting affair from start to finish. This sorrel top youngster matched wits, brawn and speed with White, of the Bear- kats, until fur flew in all directions. After plunging thru the line and clearing himself, he dashed 20 yards for a touchdown. On the try for extra point, McLean carried the ball over making the score 7 to 0 at the half. The feature ot the game came In the third period, when ' Warden snatched the opposing team's pass and raced 60 yards for a touchdown. Intercepted on his own 40-yard line in a dead run. Warden wiggled his way out of the scrimmage and succeeded in crossing the goal line with Eaton : playing the part of interference. | With "Lefty" Morris and Farrell j Wallace leading the attack, the Cougar line charged on many occasions, ] paving the way for a well directed Iplay. On the defense. Morris broke j thru on two occasions to block Love's I punts. For Sam Houston, Jackson, tone armed, and with plenty of fight, (showed to quite an advantage even [though playing under this handicap. {Baldwin, who broke loose twice for Joke Shop YOUNG STUDENTS! THE FINALS SURE'LL GET YOU (With apologies to James Whitcomb Riley.) By Louise Shepperd Onc't there was a bright young student enrolled at H. J. C. But when it came the end of school, he was mad as mad could be; His Mammy heard him holler and his Daddy heard him bawl For when he got his final grades, he hadn't passed at all! They had told him and they'd warned him to stop his foolishness: They'd done 'most everything they could but beat him up, I guess. But, even them, his highest grade was "E" or thereabout For the Finals sure'll get you If you Don't Watch Out! An' one time a pretty girl 'ud alius laugh and grin An' never get her lessons up or turn her papers in, An' onc't when there was Company, and the Dean himself was there, She didn't know an answer an' she said she didn't care! She thought when school was nearly out she'd settle down to cram. But, sakes alive, before she knew it, here came that last exam: So she flunked in all her courses 'fore she knew what she's about For the Finals sure'll get you Don't Watch Out! So while the term is fresh and new, before you get behind— (Even though you think that you're all right an* that the teaches kind. An' though a cut seems lots o' fun an' better*n any class, An' though you feel that, after all, you're BOUND to make a pass, An' though to study two long hours on each assignment made Seems wasting time, an' even though you think you're not afraid)— You'd better start to study and let ideas sprout, For the Finals sure'll get you If you Don't Watch Out! long gains. was a shining light in Coach Kirk's backfield.
