W. CLLLEN ADMINISTRATION BUILDING DEDICATION Around us rise the symbols of the University of Houston ' s progress. It is impossible to walk between ituildings on the campus without realizing the tremendous growth which is taking place as each day passes. Construction has become such a familiar sight to us that wc often traverse the grounds without consciously noticing the constant iniproxcmciit and eidargcment taking place. Alm() t without our rcali inu it. the University is being rearranged. No. nolhiti;: ha brcii moved: but. with the addition of new buildings, the cam|)ii- li.i- |je i)nie a iiiiil in le,i(l uf an unrealized arciiilrciina I plan. Center of this unit is the Ezekiel W. Cullen adminislration building, which has already been did)bcd the " Zeke building, " not with irreverence but with affection. Rising majestically toward the blue Texas sky. the " eke building " svmbolizes that spirit of growth and progress which is the I ni- versity of Ibm-lnn. To that spirit and to Ezekiel W. Cullen, the Texas patriot wlm-,- lori ' - sight envisioned the need for an educated Texas, wc dedieile i lie 10.50 Houstonian. THK l ' r 0 HOUSTONUW STAKE STAFF ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Your 1950 Houstonian is the work of many minds and hands. Any annual, large or small, needs the services of a varied group, using their many talents. Giving credit to all who made The 1950 Houstonian a reality is a big job involving the cooperation of almost every student and faculty member in one way or another. First job that confronted us was the class section. Wheat studios worked through the turmoil of registration to help set a record in the number of class pictures taken for any Houstonian. Keeping more than 2300 pic- tures straight was a difficult job, but Wheat came through in fine style. The Vanity Fair Beauty section photographs were produced by Miss Martha Pyke of the University ' s photography department and her student photographers. Jim Brand, Yvonne Corrigan, John J. Ford, W. Walter Gural, Marvin Harris, Ray Hembree, Robert E. Johnson, Carolyn Litowich, Ted Marek, and Molly Reed. They did a great job. Kappa Alpjha Mu pictorial journalism fraternity and the University ' s photography department came through for us with pictorial coverage of the campus, its activities, and its students. Without top-quality pictures, you can ' t have a good yearbook. Individually our photographers corps, led by Dan Hardy, included Jim Cummings, Ira Dischler, Keith Hawkins, Glenn Heath, and Ted Marek. Photography without printing, however, can ' t produce the best Hous- tonian possible. Taylor Publishing company, our printers, was the final link in a chain that bound The 1950 Houstonian together. Taylor ' s rep- resentative, Martin Hamilton, was on call whenever we ran into the stum- bling blocks of an annual. Tom Murray, Taylor ' s art editor, kept close watch on the book at the plant and also designed the title page, contents, and cover. Since this book is the largest lithographed annual ever produced in Texas, it is fitting that the job should be done by the largest yearbook lithography concern in the coimtry. That brings us to you, the reader, again, in the book ' s creation, you played your respective part. Now it ' s ready, your 19.50 HOUSTONIAN. THE HOUSTONIAN STAFF N. S.

The Fiesta Pageant introdured the Rrlle and Sheriff to the audienee each night. ■ y 1 OPENING NIGHT On opening night, the sedate citizeiir of Hou- ston mingled in the hrauhiig Western atmosphere of Fiesta Cit . Bearded cowhands, costumed coeds, log-tim- bered cabarets — they all combined to form the 19o() Frontier Fiesta, the " Greatest College Show on Earth. " From Tuesday through Saturday, the crowds kept pouring into the modern boomtown. For five days. UH students offered entertainment of a by- gone day. Can-cans by the dozen. Western drama, come- dy, song, dance, you name it. Fiesta City went all out to bring back the days of the cowhands and cowgirls to modern fiouston. Bella Union ' s gorgeous choru Soused Pacific parodied a familiar musical. Luscious eyefuls awaited Cavalier Theater audiences Far-famed was the Crow ' s Nest Powder Puff Revue. FRONTIER FIESTA FINALE After a five-night run. longest in history. Frontier Fiesta for 19.50 rang down the curtain on the last show. The show was over. Long live the show. With that thought in mind, pla nning began for Fiesta in 1951. The first step would be one of the toughest, trying to find a successor to fill the boots vacated by Dave Halphen, Fiesta chairman this year. With his selection announced at the Fiesta Banquet in May, another ' ' Greatest College Show on Earth " would be under way made possible through the energies of the students of the University of Houston. For another year, the spirit of the Old West would lie dormant, gathering strength to return to Fiesta City next year, bigger and better than ever.

Last summer, the ■ " troops " attended training at Camp Lee. Va. where they made quite a record for themselves. All annual military ball has alreadv become a L ' H tradition under the sponsorship of the ROTC. Cadets participate in the latest army training. MUSIC Long a stalwart of L H curriculum, the nmsic depart- ment sponsors various musical recitals each vear. Perhaps the high light of each year for the department is the annual operetta. Training in voice and instruments is offered and the department has long been noted for the talented nmsicians which are a result of long hours of practice and study.

Processing, the unsung part of the work, is illustrated to the right. PHYSICS Education in the science of physics, long-regarded as a basic course for engineering students, has come into its own in this atomic age. Realizing this, the physics department has constantly broadened and increased the curriculum to keep pace with our modern civilization. Theories of energy, light, heat, electricity, and the many other divisions of physics are explained to the student and driven home by practical laboratory work.

Located conveniently in the business section of Houston, the Downtown School offers a variety of courses to business people who are unable to attend classes at the main campus. Both the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Business regularly schedule classes at the Downtown School.

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION The School of Education has as its purpose the preparation of teachers for public and private schools. Graduate work in education is primarily for experienced teachers and school administrators. The bachelor ' s degree is offered to persons completing four years of academic work with a major in Education. The Master of Education degree is offered to graduate students who complete . ' 56 hours of graduate work approved by the student ' s adviser. The Doctor of Education is a professional degree designed for leadership in the fields of school administration, school supervision, and in specialized subject matter fields. This degree is offered after the completion of approximately three years " work beyond the bachelors degree plus the completion of an accepted research problem. Education majors learn the value of psychological testing procedures. Visual education is assuming more and more importance today. liiijMiiiaiii liiKii- alt- .-jirnt at the drawing board.

Law students are outstanding in student activities. Methods of instruction enable the graduate to prac tice law wherever the Anglo-American svstein of law prevails. Other objectives of the School are to provide training in the fundamental techniques required in the practice oi administration of law: to impart to and aid all students in acquiring an understanding and appreciation of the higher nature of the profession into which they are aboul to enter: to better equip them to participate intelligentl) in the affairs of their community, state, and nation : tc develop in them a sense of balance, a respect for rights, and an understanding of the obligations such rights and privileges entail. ,se|ilfiB 1. 0 " Dean W hite explains a legal point in the Law School library.

After the first month in the training program, the hospital will provide part-time employment for four hours a day. After the third month, students are placed in the hos])itals and their training continues for the nine-month clinical period. During this ]jerio(I. the hospitals provide compensation. Minimum starting salary is $125 per month after the 12- month training. The program offers an excellent oiniorlmiit) for training. NURSE ASSISTANT SCHOOL FACULTY Mr. Gardner (assistant to the director) . ■ BUSINESS OFFICE Keeping University books straight. Busi- ness Manager C. F. McElhinney and Auditor C. E. Cole get little publicity for their work. University payrolls, tui- tion of students, and bills, small and large, must be kept in order. Realizing the scope of the campus, one can under- stand the heavy responsibility on these men ' s shoulders. CO-OP OFFICE Combining classroom instruction with on-the- job training, the cooperative program gives students a chance to apply the theories of the class room in actual practice, financial assist- ance and training to get along with fellow workers. The University is in a unique posi- tion to utilize the advantages of a cooperative program in a city the size of Houston. GUIDANCE OFFICE With the War ' s end. thousands of vet- erans streamed back to colleges through- out the country. Caught unprepared, the University appointed R. O. Jonas to direct veterans ' affairs. Now, after five vears. the Guidance office not only counsels veterans but also non-veteraiis. Students who remember the long waiting lines of other years can stop to marvel at the ease and ability with which the (Juidance office handles a steadv pro- gram of counseling with efTicienc . I ; CAFETERIA Students liiM ' to cal. Mrs. Louise riplil. director of the rafeteria, can testif to that fact. Kaeh school da . Mrs. W ' ripht. her dieticians, and the cafeteria staff pre- pare ininieiise quantities of each nutriti- ous nieal. Between meals, students and facult nieinhcrs find the cafeli-ria a meeting place for a quick cup of collee iiet«een classes. CANTEEN NO. I Quick snacks are the specialty of the Nuniher One Canteen. A sandwich and a cold drink are often all a hurried student has time to grah for lunch. Candy, cigarettes, ice cream, and chewing gum are other stock items. CANTEEN NO. 2 After years of trudging across the campus for coffee and food, students attending classes on the North campus got a hreak with the installation of the iNumher Two Canteen. This canteen became a meeting place for those stu- dents almost innncdiately. 205 LIBRARY Many a term paper first saw the light of day in the Lniversity Library. Each week, the staff, under the direction of Mrs. Ruth " ikof[. helps students with reference material for projects. After years of crowded facilities, the library is looking forward to the completion of the M.D. Anderson Memorial Library next year. MEDICAL OFFICE Sore throats swept the campus early this spring but the Liniversity Medical office sprang into action with throat swabs, pre- scriptions, and good advice to cure ailing students and faculty members almost immedi- ately. This was just another example of the constant vigilance which is kept on the stand- ard of health at LH. Injured athletes also receive treatment from the office which is directed by Dr. Allan Collette. PLACEMENT OFFICE " Brother, can you spare a dime? " ' The legend of the poverty-stricken student should have no place at I ' H. Willi the help of the Placement office, directed by Miss L. L. Russell, students can get part or full-time employment and. upon grad- uation, assistance in entering the occu- |)ation of their choice. Prospective employers also find the Placement office helpful as a ready market for finding employees suiting all capabilities.

This program is rajiidiy hecom- ing popular with all students as they realize how much time and wasted effort can he saved hy picking the right major before fail- ing two or three others. REGISTRAR ' S OFFICE Viith more than l. ' 3.()(l() students en- rolled, the Registrar ' s office has seen the true story of I M growth from less than a thousand to its present strength. In watching, this office has had to grow also. Long registration lines liaxe become a thing of the past as procedures were sircandined. With a|)pri ximatel five minutes needed to register each student at the present time, the I II system is regarded as one of the best in the Country. Directed bv Dr. Terrel Spencer, this office not oidy registers each student hut keeps track of his progress as a student. SCIENCE LIBRARY Store house of scientific data, the Science Library offers specialized reference material for science and engineering majors. Located on the third floor of the Science building, this office is prob- ably the least known of any at the University and also probably one of the most valuable. Walter Hauffe helps students locate themselves in this maze of scientific lore. STUDENT ACTIVITIES Conflicting extra- curricular activities are no longer a difficulty. Use of the Student Activi- ties Calendar in scheduling events has erased this trouble. J. E. Williamson, director of student activities, has other jobs like providing students with pleasure and play to forget long hours of studying. Student organizations bene- fit from the office by finding out regulations on clubs. The office offers additional service, such as. assisting students in finding a place to live. TRAFFIC OFFICE Cussed and discussed, the Traffic office goes its way providing the University with smooth-flowing traffic and plenty of parking space. Every car on the campus must be registered with this office in order to park at the University. Another service is directing visitors who would otherwise be lost in the maze of construction and winding drives which UH presents to the newcomer.

Believing in the truth of this saying, the Visual Flduca- tion office has amassed nianv films to be shown to classes at the University. By show- ing visually how a job is done, the office saves the time of the faculty and students. L. W. Dickerson, director has been instru- mental in building up a vast library of films on every conceivable subject. WOMEN ' S DEAN With the construction of dormitories at the I niversity. Mrs. Theo llumiicutt ' s position as Women ' s Dean will assume greater rcsjionsibilitics, Even now. Mrs. Hunnicutt is organizing a women ' s coun- cil to help direct dormitory life when it becomes a reality next year.

EX-STUDENTS ASSOCIATION Growing by leaps and bounds every year, the Ex-Students Association is selling the University to Houston as well as the world. Biggest Ex affair is the Homecoming Day celebration each fall when the group gets together on the campus for a luncheon, football game, and the Homecoming Dance. Picnics are held around graduation time to welcome new Exes into the fold. Fund drives by the Exes are used to help the University ' s progress continue. The Sideline Coaches is gaining much enthusiasm for Cougar grid teams. The Homecoming bonfire warmed Exes.

W and M EDGES INSPIRED COUGARS. 14-13 HOUSTON, Sept. 17 — The Cougars, obviously awed by the ' big-time ' William Mary Indians in the first half, forgot their awe in the second half of their 1949 debut tonight, and finished strong, but were nipped 14-13 by the Virginia team. It was all Indians in the first half Buddy Lex, a young man who moves in rapid fashion from halfback, and Ed Weber, who emulates Lex, led the potent W M ground attack. Highly-touted Jack Cloud rammed over two TD ' s but did little else to live up to his fancy reputation. The third quarter proved a near-stalemate, with the UH holding a defensive edge. The Big Red pushed the W M team about the field in a most ungentle manner, but did not score. Two fourth-quarter scores for the UH, by Aubrey Baker and Jack Golden, respectively, put them very much back in the game. But Alan Ne- veux ' s second point-after try was blocked by Mike O ' Pella and Cougar fans were left wishing that there could have been two second halves and no first halves.

Hartsell was T-boss on three of the I ' M scores, and Max Harding engineered the other. This was a slow game, uninteresting and loosely-played to the point of boredom. Sixteen fumbles were recorded. 11 by the butter-fingered Coujiars. All but two of the I H fundiles were recovered by the midwestern club, but it could summon up no offensive power. A strong UH line held the un-electric Shockers fron) Kansas to ten net yards rushing, while fleet UH backs were showing their heels — when they weren ' t busy hobbling.

Oct. 8 — The UH revenged a previous year ' s trimming by an underdog Bulldog eleven from SLI. when they turned out a method- ical 28-7 win over the Louisiana team here tonight. More sure of itself than last week when it fumbled to a victory over Wichita U, the Cougar squad played heads-up, near-errorless ball. In fact, they made only one blunder; Jolly Hartsell ' s fumble of a punt catch in the third quarter. The fumble was recovered by SLI. and the swamp-country team went for a score in two plays, both passes. Coach Clyde Lee cleared the benches here tonight, using 55 players. Far from looking like second-stringers, the reserves showed considerable class themselves in squelching all but one of the SLI teams ' bids for scores. Brusing Fullback Aubrey Baker punched out two touchdowns for the Cougars, and Lloyd Ralson scored one on an Alan Neveu.x pass. The other LH score came on a 40-yard runback of a pass interception by Red Pur- dum.

Gene Mayficld. baffled the Cougars most of the game. Mayfield would tighten up the line with a pair of slams at the middle, then pass until the L ' H forwards were s| read. and the backs were dizzy. But when the Buffs neared the double stripe, the Red and White front wall, drawing inspiration from rugged Leo Van lla crbeke. rose up to deny the bid. It was an obvious case of overconfidence on the Cougars " part. But outstanding defensive play by Van [laverbeke. Bill Butler.

The Cougars ate up 284 yards rushing, and scored all of their touch- downs on running plays, while the flashy Ford aerials racked up all four of the H-SU six-pointers, and gained 281 airline yards.

INDIANS TRIP RED AND WHITE TO WIN. 33-21 WICFIITA FALLS, Oct. 29 — Sharp blocking and fierce running, com- bined with seven intercejDtions of Cougar passes, helped the Indians of Har- din college to a 33-21 win over the IH here today. It was the Cougars " first loss in the newly-formed Gulf Coast conference. For the first time this year, the UH line was completely outshone. The firedup Hardin team ground out 232 yards rushing, and their line held the usually-strong VU attack to 177 yards. Total statistics showed the Red- Clad Cougars with the edge, for they gained 162 air yards to a mere 32 for the Indians. With the score at 14-7 in the second (juarter. and the ball on the Indian one. the L H fumbled and Hardin recovered. This may have been the turn- ing point of the game, for in the third, the inspired Indians put it in the sack with two more TD ' s and ran the count to 33-7, Alan Neveux passed for two touchdowns in the fourth, to take some of the edge off the L ' Hs humiliation.

The opening half was strictly the New Yorkers ' property. They out- played the UH in all departments. Bona scouts had done their work well in informing the Indian coaches of the weak UH pass defense, for the St. Bonaventure team completed nine of 14 for 103 yards. The Cougars finally got going in the second half, and tied the score at 14-14. Big T-Ieader Alan Neveux guided the UH, pasing to End Don Willhelm for one TD, and scoring the other himself on a short thrust. Neveux also kicked the extra points. But the New Yorkers came right back with the winning TD on a drive that took only five plays. The score came on a seven-yard pass, and it end- ed. 20-14.

Winfield scored one TD. and Mo Elliott scored the other on a . ' O-vard heave by Neveux. But the Eagles roared back and went ahead on another Martin aerial.

It was the Red and White team ' s final home game of the 1949 season, and the gave their fans a great exhibition of second- half spirit. The Cougars could apparently do nothing right in the first half. The UH tackling was dull and unenthusiastic, as was its blocking and running. The only bright spot for the Cougars came after 14 minutes had elapsed in the second quarter, when Jim " Country " Clark passed to Max Clark, who legged it 40 yards for a score. Coach Clyde Lee ' s halftime talk must have been strong, for the fired- up Cougars completely dominated the second half. Crisp blocking and sharp speed in running, combined with the bone-rattling tackling of the Cougar defense, left little doubt in UH partisans ' minds that this was their game. Gene Shannon accounted for the three UH touchdowns in the second half. Alan Neveux perked up to his previous fine form, and master-minded the UH split T attack in this overwhelming display of power. Neveux add- ed four more extra points to his lengthening string. % MAURICE ELLIOTT End A i ' iSBy I j 5 £i?sr.

This Thanksgiving Dav victory marked the end of the 1949 season for the Cougars and also marked the end of their first wiiuiing season with a .i-4-I record. The big redclad team, for the first time in too long a period, faced a team without a strong passing attack. The Billikens were looking for that re- portedly weak I H pass defense, and got themselves nothing but grief for their efforts. Thev completed onl seven passes out of 29 attempts and lost the ball several times on fourth down when they attempted to pass. Coach Clyde Lee carried 44 players along on the trip, and all saw ser- vice in the contest.

The game was rated as a toss-up by pregame dope- sters. and indeed, at the half it was deadlocked. But the Red and White squad, sparked by Veterans Lloyd Hendrix and Dick Berg, and aided by Center Dave Rod- riguez, won going away. A favored Loyola team was next to fall to the Cougars. In the High School field house, the underdog UH team, paced again by Hendrix with some strong support from Marvin Reichle and Herb Richardson, soundly whipped the New Orleans five by a score of 57-33. It was two in a row for the Cougars. But the UH string was to be snapped abruptly. On an extended tour of the Midwest, the Cougars met Bradley and fell with a thump by the lopsided score of 73-57. The walloping was hardly in the " disgrace " class, however. Bradley was later to be voted Number One in National Associated Press pollings by an overwhelming margin. In the second game of their Midwest- ern tour, the UH met Loras college of Dubuque, Iowa and found the only bright spot in an otherwise disastrous series.

Back to the Midwest for tlie final game of their tour, the Cougars tangled with the tough Creighton university team of Omaha. Nebraska, and lost again. 47-.S2. At half- time the I II was ahead 27-22. but the Omaha team surged ahead in the final minutes to win. Berg. Mendrix, and Fiodriguez fouled out. The loss of the threi- key players was perhaps the deciding factor in this one. Mendrix led pointmakers with l " . tallies. Dick Berg and an unidentified Cougar cop the oval from three Hardin college I Later Midwestern University ) players as the L ' H breezes to a 63-38 victory. The win was the second for the Big Red and White team in the Gulf Coast Con- ference race. UH WINS TWO.

Berg and Rodriguez paced I. H scorers with 15 |] and 14 tallies respectively. 1. Home at last after their disastrous tour, the Cougars met the Wichita university team in High School field house on December 30. and came from behind 35-37 at the half, to win over the Kansas squad. 72-66. Hendrix ' fat 24 points for the night was a big factor in the mild upset. Reichle had 15 points, and Berg rang up 14. A strongly-favored Pepperdine five from Los Angeles was next to fall to the homecourt Cougars. 46-47. The closest contest to date for the L H at home, this one had fans on their feet all the way through. Marked by sharp defensive play, it was a seesaw affair with the score changing hands many times. The 13 points of Herb Rich- ardson were tops for UH scorers for the night. His great defensive work, along with that of Berg and Reichle. were a decisive factor in the UH ' s fourth consecutive win on home grounds. i DICK BERG Forward and Center liilite ' 314 Iff onlv ;. im4 " ' •fcCoi 1 Scloolt iiii 35.j; ' « in tie I nfiipli irs.

Previously, the track squad had participated in the Border Olympics at Laredo and the Fort Worth Exposi- tion. bi the first two meets, the squad show- ed themselves as having fine material but needing a little experience to really do their best. At Ruston in the triangular meet, the Cougars came through sweeping both Louisiana schools out of the way and taking top honors for the day. At press- time, it looked like smooth sailing.

In mid-fall semester. 12 teams entered into the men ' s intramural football contest. On the rosier of teams entered were several teams which proved tough in previous years, among them the Austin Exes. 1947 champions. The tournament was a double- elimination deal. In the final contest, the Ex Aggies edged ilic Newman club 18-12 in a hard-fought tilt. The intramural basketball tournament was not con- cluded at lloustonian press time, but ihe Heights ' A " Club, coached by (ierald Arnold, and Ked ' s J{aiders. coached by Bernard Purdum. were all set to tangle for the cham|)ionship. The intramural volleyball tournament was also in full swing when the Houstonian went to bed, making it impossible to report the outcome of that series. Still to come was the men ' s intramural Softball con- test, perhaps llie most hot U -contested tournament of the lot.

In this, the fourth year of competitive intramurals. the female members of the I niver- sity student bodv are taking a big part in the e er-expanding UH athletic system. A great deal of the credit goes to the Lan- yard Club, women ' s physical education group. This vear the women participated in basketball. voUevball. Softball, and bad- minton intramural contests. In fact, the onlv sport that the men can exclusively call their own is intramural football, and who knows but what that too ma fall to the ambitious ladies in the future? Only the intramural volleyball was complete at Houstonian press time. In that tournament, marked by thrills and chills and squeals of both delight and anguish, the Wildcats showed that they were of the iirojier temperament an(f ability by walloping the Owls in the final game. 2()-9. and winning ihc championship. . ■P JOE BUSH editor-jail term COUGAR STAFF— FALL AND SPRING TERMS Editors Joe Bush, Bob Kouts Business Manager Jack Wilson Managing Editors Bill Powell.

Growing Together Both Houston and the University of Houston have jirogressed phenomenally in the last decade — Houston increasing its population and material growth, the University expanding its student body, faculty and educational facilities. Graduates of the University can well be proud of the years spent there for they emerge better, more powerful citizens possessed of knowledge, understanding, tolerance and the ability to think. The University of Houston, its graduates, and the city whose name it bears can indeed look forward to the brightest of futures. 1 V JLL MANUFACTURING CO. fgl- 361 INVENTION the mother of necessity At the turn of the twentieth century, America entered an era of productivity that was to astound the world. The invention of the rotary method of deep drilling for oil was to foster the automobile, the airplane, the Diesel engine, plastics, synthetic rubber, and many other developments. These, in turn, have long since become everyday necessities in the modern American way of life. Through the efforts of an obscure young inventor named Hughes, who chose a Texas cow pasture for his laboratory experiments in seeking oil with the rotary rock drill of his own inven- tion, the developments dependent upon volume production of crude oil survived! With the intro- duction of the Hughes Rock Bit and its successful operation in drilling to unheard-of depths for oil deposits beneath the earth ' s surface, great volume production of petroleum in previously impen- etrable geologic formations be- came possible. Volume production meant low-cost fuel for transpor- tation . . , sparked the refining industry to fantastic accomplish- ment . . . gave birth to the syn- thetic rubber industry . . . and laid the cornerstone to an Ameri- can economy that was to be the marvel of the age! Since the development of the Hughes Rock Bit in 1909, the name HUGHES has symbolized universal leadership in every oil field on the globe . . . has merited the well deserved title, " World Standard of the Industry.
