Although a soldier for many years, General A. D. Bruce emphasized
that he was not bringing the drill field to the University of Houston.
"I've dealt a great deal with young people and want to continue to
help them," stated the General when asked why he came to the Uni-
versity, and then emphatically continued with, "I also think the Uni-
versity of Houston is unique in its field-progressive and challenging."
This modern-minded educator relies on the great proverb, "Do unto
others as you would have them do unto you," for he believes it to be
as fitting in today's streamlined world of efficiency as it was long ago
when Christ gave it to His disciples.
Foremost in his thoughts today, the General says, is the care of the
student. This means good times, good food, and good living iust as
much as good curriculum, for he wants his students to be well-rounded
individuals-not bookworms or party kids-but enough of both. After
graduating from Texas A8fM in 1916, General Bruce began his great
military career. He soon became known as one who was always up
to date. He liked modern ideas and methods and helped put into op-
eration in the service such improvements as movies and other efficient
Never one to stand still, General Bruce was in on many of the
bloody battles of World War I, he commanded the 77th Infantry Di-
vision in World War ll and served as the first Governor of occupied
Hokkaido, Japan, which sums up only a few of his outstanding serv-
ices. On July 31, 1954, General Bruce, the soldier and fighter, be-
came General Bruce, the civilian and educator. Now President of the
University of Houston, he is directing, educating, and doing his best
to mold the lives of his students into lives of well-rounded, well-ed-

MR. LEON HALDEN
The word service best typifies the kind of life that
Leon G. Halden led for sixty years. He spent his
life in service to his family, his friends, his school
and his country. After twenty years in the service
of the University as an instructor in government,
Mr. Halden suffered a stroke on July 26 of last year
which proved fatal. For twenty years, long days of
hard work and much tireless energy went into train-
ing students in all fields of government, politics, and
A nationally known figure in "Who's Who in
America," Mr. Halden also served as a major in
both World War l and World War Il in service to
Not only did he serve his country in military duty,
but he was well known throughout the United States
as both a speaker and writer on foreign affairs.
Three of his best known books are: Japan, Colossus
of the Far East, Study of Diplomacy of the Ethiopian
Crisis, and Red Fascism.
Yet this man who stood at the top in learning and
who was well-known throughout the country for
his knowledge of foreign affairs spent his life help-
ing those who were iust beginning to climb the
ladder of education success. "Even as ye do this unto
the least of them, ye do it unto me" seems to have
been Mr. Halden's philosophy.

THE COLLEGE OF LAW
The College of Law, which was begun in Sep-
tember, 1947, gained full approval of the Amer-
ican Bar Association in February, 1953. lt has al-
ways had the approval of the State Board of Law
Examiners of Texas.
One of the College's fundamental accomplish-
ments is that the students recognize that the Law
College is a place where not only law and its
techniques are taught, but a place where the
living of its ethics and high professional stand-
ards is begun.
The Sc,hool's aim is to enable the student to
practice law wherever the Anglo-American sys-
tem of law prevails. It seeks to help its students:
1. To provide training in the fundamental ad-
ministration ofthe law.
2. To acquire an understanding and an appre-
ciation of the higher nature of their chosen
3. To better equip them to participate intelli-
gently in local, state, and national affairs.
4. To develop in them a sense of social balance,
a respect for rights and privileges, and an
understanding of the obligations such rights
and privileges entail.

THE COLLEGE OF NURSING
The College of Nursing, through an increased
demand for nursing service, was established by
the University ,of Houston in February, 1948, as
The School of Practical Nursing. The University
has furnished instruction in academic courses to
the hospital schools of nursing in Houston for
over fifteen years.
Because of the rapidly expanding need for well-
prepared nurses in this community and because
of the trend toward the preparation of the pro-
fessional nurse on a college level, the University
leased the educational facilities and the residence
of the Herman Hospital unit as a nucleus.
T.he Methodist Hospital unit was formed in June,
1950, when the freshman class voted to ioin
the central College of Nursing. A tract of land has
been set aside by the Board of the Texas Medical
Center for the permanent home of this nursing
division of the University of Houston.

The College of Nursing has many varied activities during each school year. They
adopt two needy families each Christmas, hold dances such as The Freshman Dance, the
Annual Formal, and many informal- socials with Ellington Air Force Base. One of the
main events around the Nursing School is the Annual Variety Show in January. This
provides funds to send representatives to National League for Nurses'Associati'on and
The Texas Student Nurses Association. The part taken in Homecoming and Fiesta activ-
ities, by the Nurses, is always outstanding. The student body of Nurses is known as
the Decus. Officers are elected each year. For i954 and i'-755 they are: Janie Bram-
lette, President, Evelyn Sutter, Vice President, Guadalupe Neata, Secretary, Lou Daven-
port, Treasurer, and Williminia McNeer, Parliamentarian. Stella M. Spencer is the sponsor.

Students with questions concerning what
they should do, could olo, and would like
to do for a career got good down-to-earth
answers during Career Day. Many outstand-

economics to hearing Therapy and on to
foreign service were here to help students
decide on a career.
Hazy ideas, foggy notions, and question-
ing minds were relieved by experts' clear,
crisp answers in various group meetings.
No longer did students have to grope
blindly toward a career-they could get
hard, cold facts about everything from the
glamour to the money and work connected
with a specific career.
Many plans for careers became crystal
clear after hearing this expert guidance and
advice offered during Career Day. And at
last many career-minded students knew
just where their career could- take them

Annie Oakley sets the ball rollin' to a bigger and And this is the clash and bam that makes our Fiesta a million dollar production
better Fiesta City . . .
. . . All of this is done in preparation for one big week of western celebra-
tion. Organizations and talented students band together to give the
University an Old West frontier feeling complete with western shows,
shooting contests, "beard-raising" contests, barbecues, and an outlaw
ride with a mock bank robbery . . . all staged by the students themselves.
But Frontier Fiesta is much more than this. lt is a feeling. A feeling ot
unity and closeness which draws the school together. All the work, the
"wondering it you'll ever stop practicing and hammering" and "is the
director ot your show losing his mind?" feeling . . . all this is part ot
Fiesta. Behind this, though, is that quality, that "Spirit ot Fiesta" that
makes you know that Frontier Fiesta is truly "The Greatest College Show

NOT BY BREAD ALONE -
Man does not live by bread alone, but by beauty and har-
mony, truth and goodness, work and recreation, affection and
friendship, aspiration and worship.
Not by bread alone, but by the splendor of the firmament
at night, the glory of the heavens at dawn, the blending of
colors at sunset, the loveliness of magnolia trees, the mag-
nificence of mountains.
Not by bread alone, but by the maiesty of ocean breakers,
the shimmer of moonlight on a calm lake, the flashing silver
of a mountain torrent, the exquisite patterns of snow crystals,
the creations of artists.
Not by bread alone, but the sweet song of a mockingbird,
the rustle of the wind in the trees, the magic of a violin, the
sublimity of a softly lighted cathedral.
Not by bread alone, but by the fragrance of roses, the scent
of orange blossoms, the smell of new-mown hay, the clasp
of a friend's hand, the tenderness of a mother's kiss.
Not by bread alone, but by the lyrics of poets, the wisdom
of sages, the holiness of saints, the biographies of great souls.
Not by bread alone, but by comradeship and high adven-
ture, seeking and finding, serving and sharing, loving and
Man does not live by bread alone, but by being faithful
in prayer, responding to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, find-
ing and doing the loving will of God now and eternally.

What is Student Government? . . . That's a difficult question to answer
because Student Government means many things to many people. To
graduates . . . wonderful memories . . . phones ringing . . . whispered
conversation . . . smoke-filled caucus rooms . . . the fever and frenzy of
election day . . . the disappointments and ioys of returns . . . the satis-
faction and honors that go with a iob well done. To the Freshmen a
challenge. . .a promise. . .a dream. its purpose . . . to unite and mold
the representatives of the many student groups and interests into one
compact group, Working together for the good of the entire student
body. Student Government is big business . . . the management and
administration serve as a valuable proving ground for the develop-
ment of better citizens, schooled in the art of government and skilled
in its mechanics. Nothing is too large to tackle or too small to neglect.
Freshman orientation . . . Junior-Senior prom . . . participation in Texas
Intercollegiate Student Association and related national programs . . .
co-ordinating the affairs and activities of the students with the faculty
and administration are a few of the many concerns for Student Gov-
ernment . . . ever mindful that Student Government is pledged to pre-
serve, protect, and further the well being and freedom of the students
of the University of Houston. If Student Government can import to the
students the tremendous significance and paramount importance of
government so that upon graduation they are better prepared to take
their place in society, Student Government will have rendered a valuable
service to our country.

Made up of representatives of all campus organizations,
the Pep Club co-ordinates school spirit activities. This year
they were the backbone behind the most successful flash
card section ever produced at the University. Many hours
went into the planning of colorful patterns flashed dur-
ing the half at each game. In addition to this the group
sponsored the torchlight parade, before game dances, and
the sale of beanies to the freshmen. Slogan slips for each
game were handled and sold by the members to boost
spirit and encourage the cheering section at football

James R. Warren, former student of
the University of Houston, is respon-
sible for the vast improvement the
Cougar Band made this year. His
first year as Band Director proved
highly successful. His enthusiastic
direction and new ideas enabled the
band to produce impressive forma-
tions at each football game.
What could be more colorful than a huge
marching band? The grey and red of the
Cougar Band has become a cherished sight
at football games and pep rallies . . . A
feeling of pride is shared by all when they
appear in lines as wide and as long as the
width of the football field itself . . . Our
hats are off to an organization who, since
1946, has grown in size and quality in
triplicate . . .

FORT LEE, VIRGINIA
Advance Cadets of the U.H. gathered last
summer at the Quartermaster Training Com-
mand of the U.S., Fort Lee, Virginia, to re-
ceive six weeks of training prior to grad-
uation the following June. All phases of
military life were compacted into the train-
ing period. Up in the morning at 4:30, the
daily dozen, march to chow, clean up the
barracks, police the area, double time, quick
time it to the class area, four hours of
classes in the morning and afternoon, read
the bulletin board for such things as K.P.,
guard duty, CQ., and those little "extra
duties," then there were those days of dry
runs on the P.R.I. range and finally to the
rifle ranges and before breaking up camp
it was out to Camp Pickett for bivouac.
When August Ist came around, it was
good-by to Virginia, hello to Texas, as the
Cadets packed and said good-by to Fort
Lee and headed home.
On the firing line with the grease gun.

Courage begins when we can ad-
mit There is no lite without some
pain, some frustrationg that there
is no tragic accident to which we
are immune, and that beyond the
normal exercise of prudence we
can do nothing about it. But cour-
age goes on to see that the triumph
of life is not in pains avoided, but
in ioys lived completely in the mo-
ment ot their happening. Courage
lies in never taking so much as a
good meal or a day ot health and
fair weather for granted. lt lies in
learning to be aware of our mo-
ments of happiness as sharply as
our moments of pain, we need not
be afraid to weep when we have
cause to weep, so long as we really
reioice at every cause for reioicing.

"She hasta be fed, She hasta be watered,
She hasta be looked after." She hasta. Say
it fast and there is the name of the Cougar
mascot, Shasta. Shasta, cared for by the Cou-
gar Guard, traveled some 4200 miles attend-
ing out of town football games during the
1954 football season. A mere 130 pounds,
Shasta has an eight man "cat-guard" who is
in charge of her care during all out of town
trips. These members of the Cougar Guard
must be A.P.O. members and then these pros-
pective Guard members must be approved
by guard members.
Although "she hasta" have a lot, Shasta has
become a well known, well thought of cat
on the University campus.

Houston, Nov. 6 . . . Playing Their worst football of the season for the
first two quarters, the Cougars came back in the second half to defeat
Tulsa University 20-7 before a small crowd of l5,400. Only Tulsa's
own ragged play enabled the Cougars to trail by only one point at the
end of the half 7-6. Late in the first quarter Quarterback Jimmy Dickey
passed to right halfback Jim Baughman from his own 37 to the Tulsa
40. Baughman shook off two tacklers and ran all the way for the score.
Verle Cray's conversion was no good. Tulsa scored with lO seconds
left to play in the first half on a 22-yard pass play. After getting the ball
for the first time in the second half, Houston marched 61 yards for a
touchdown. Fullback Jack Patterson, receiving a tremendous block by
Left Halfback Joe Bob Smith, went TO yards for the score. Houston's
final touchdown was the result of a 46-yard drive, aided by a T5-yard
penalty to Tulsa. Kenny Stegall took a pitchout from Dickey and ran
T3 yards for the six pointer. As the gun ended the game, Houston was
on the Tulsa five-yard line with a first down as the result of a 24-yard
interception return by Sophomore Fullback Curlev Johnson.

"You can'T measure one season's Team againsT a Team
of a diTTerenT season," Coach Alden Pasche emphaTicaIIy
sTaTed, and Then wenT on To explain ThaT The reason for
This is, "No Two Teams ever face The same problems or
have To cope wiTh The same siTuaTions."
"I personally consider This year's Team To be The besT
we've ever had, 'even Though The record doesn'T show a
very successful season. Scores and final posiTions in a
basI4eTbaII conference, aIThough very imporTanT,'are noT
The only Things To consider when you decide how good
or how bad a Team is. The imporTanT Thing To remember is
how The Team meT The opposing Teams, The problems,
and The difFicuIT siTuaTions," The coach concluded.

Cougar Cagers ushered in their 1954-55 season by open-
ing the new Texas A8tM field house with a rousing 85-63
triumph. Don Boldebuck, seven foot Cougar giant made
his debut by hitting 24 points for scoring honors. U. of H.
cagers hit on 37'X: of their shots, with reserves playing
most of the second half.
The U of H set a new school scoring mark and handed the
Texas Aggies the worst whipping in their long history
all on the same night by a lop sided 107-66 margin. The
Aggies used football and wrestling tactics as they went
after "Bolde" and held him to 15 points. But, the price
they paid was an embarrassing defeat and brought down
the ire of the crowd.

Lanky Don Boldebuck paced the Cougar attack with a 32 point
production as the triumph over Texas marked Houston's first
basketball win in the history of the two schools' short rivalry.
Jose Palofox, with 15 points, and Jack Foster's 14 followed
Boldebuck in Houston's scoring column, as the Cougars hit
a nifty 42.1 'KJ of their shots.
The Cougars displayed an offense which was colder than a
bear's paw, but still good enough to whip the Longhorns 59-52.
The win gave the Cougars a clean sweep over S. W. C. teams
for the year. Boldebuck paced the attack, chilly as it was, with
29 points. The game also marked the end of little Jackie Bell's 1
collegiate career for Houston, since mid-term brought the l g

pushing in 38 points to tie the school individual record set by Guy
Lewis in 1947, and the team totaling 102 points to better the pre-
vious mark by four set by that same 1947 team.
In record-setting game the Cougars smashed Sam Houston 108 to
100. Don Boldebuck scored a school record of 50 points in the
exciting contest and the Cougars' 108 points also represented a new
school high. The total of 208 points is now tops for a game involving
the UH. Following Boldebuck were Lopez with 14 points, Hatton's
13, and Pettite and Foster with 10 each.

grabbed an early lead and with the exception of a one point
Detroit advantage mid-way in the second half the Cougars led
all the way.
The Cougars met with its first defeat of the season from the
Titans 83-80. The game was a see-saw affair that saw the score
change hands lO times. Don Boldebuck, Jim Hatton, and Herb
Hoskins paced the Cougars' losing effort with 26, 18, and T2 y
points respectively, and little Jackie Bell continued to be Hous- l

92-65. Once again huge Don Boldebuck led the way with 29
points, even though he sat out li minutes of the contest, in-
cluding the last 6V2. The seven-foot Nebraskan also kept the
crowd gasping with a wide variety of fancy feints to shed
the opposition around the basket. Jack Foster was next in scor-
ing for Houston with 15 points, as the smooth working Cou-
gars appeared as though they would have gone over the
century mark again, but for Coach Alden Pasche's free sub-

by two graduate Home Economists and a
dietician, serves an average of 1500 meals

once a year for all University students. Every
college has a "hub," a student meeting place,
and there is no doubt as to where it is on
this campus! The Cougar Den, as its name
implies, is the den, or meeting place of all
the Cougars. All student activity notices are
posted here, and many organizations on cam-
pus use the Den for school activities.
Our "boy meets girl" spot on campus goes by
name of the Snake Pit. Located in the base-

the campus mainly serves the school of Tech-
nology. Even though the facilities are very

O. B. Hall, "the dormitory's living room."
Everything to keep students happy physically, mentally, and

problems," say Sam Shoamer and Bruce Gurd.

Few people realize the importance of this particular office. The Regis-
trar's Office admits students to the University and communicates with
prospective students. They also evaluate high school and college tran-
scripts and issue transcripts to other colleges. Analyzing records for grade
uation, keeping a permanent record card on every student, and sending
out grades are several more of the services. In addition to these services,
this office compiles, edits, and distributes University catalogues.

The Student Activities section, which functions under the capa-
ble leadership of Dean Williamson, supervises the extracur-
ricular activities on campus such as student government, honor
societies, professional societies, social fraternities and sororities,
service organizations, and religious organizations.
This office also acts as banker for student activities, with an
annual financial responsibility of over S300,000.
One thing that makes the University of Houston so unique is
that the campus sets aside an hour and a half each Friday solely
for student activities.

Available in the University of Houston Village are
apartments for married students. Here the students
and their families can live in a community made up
of people with similar interests. If it were not for
this housing proiect, many of these students would
be unable to attend the University. But the Village
has been issued a death warrant, and after June of
1956 there will be no Village, because of fire hazard.

We drill our "dry holes"-hundreds per

produce better rock bits . . .bits that enable you
to drill wells faster and more economically.
We drill these "dry holes" to test bit designs
and materials under simulated Held conditions.
Facts'learned from these HUGHES tests have
helped to produce bits that are saving days in
drilling Wells and have made it possible to drill
areas that otherwise would not have been
drilled. Our "dry holesn have played an im-
