With much planning and thought we dedicate this, Th 1 e 955 HCJUSTONIAN, to the man who has dedicated himself to the Univer- sity of'Houston . . . There are man t y grea men with talent. Some have many tal- ents, b t f ' u ew share them with as many people in personal contact as does Ed Ger- lach with the students on this cam us p . We have called on him for pep rallies, danc h ' es, s ows . . . He is always there, sometimes on an hour's notice. He is re- sponsible for our school having one of th e very top college bands in the nation. Be- f . . . ore coming to the University he arranged many hit recordings for top name bands Numerous top entertainers have studied under Ed. When the words "Ed Gerlach and His Orch " estra appear on a poster advertising a dance you can be sure it will be a suc- cess. There is one trait about this man that stands out above all th h o ers, t e personal friendship he extends to every student on campus! Thank you, ED GERLACH-Thank you!

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 instructional aids. 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- ucated people. n 15 '- 1 ,u u 'wif mum ' 'mW"'w ,J sg, ,wW'-WMU :Kei - mg, gmwpggg wQ l gg W 4,3e1aggggi ,w m uw M ,w 'W 5 ,uWa"'mww,Q' am 'N yu ww wwf ,H u A mu -, ,ww- .mH,mHW,W ww '-ww? , A V xufigffu 5. wiv Q, , v ., '1'!v"'miEW!W' Ni-mf ww w ,wmww gwm m my I 1 w w LW w W J Hwwpwm if? 4 ,1 :N W1 5 fi 'X wi iW.c'y"?"'UHQ'3Q- M ,.u'fsi",f" X ,w1f.,iZ. f, 75, ,lg mg mwwmgywkq 1 Y M ' lj' uwmfiglf Q.u--.W A: - Wwmwimwiw m? um" H H NN M My L, 'WW r BOARD """' .4 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 international relations. 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 his country. 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. fi I xl Ph ,v K ' I ..-f XX :Qual f - ,X ,. V1 , X" "lm "aww ' , fl -Q, ,- J -.. . , Q..

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES The College of Arts and Sciences is one of the largest of the nine colleges at the University of Houston. lt offers courses which prepare a student not only intellectually for his chosen pro- fession but also for life itself. The main function of the college is to form a basis for a broad and lib- eral education by emphasizing the ar- tistic, literary, philosophicg scientific and social studies are aimed at helping the student to develop his own abilities in increasing his ability at self expres- sion and in becoming a responsible and an intelligent citizen of our American democracy. . - ffered bY lhe a , - - The me Dgawlhniwoizuljft Ztuclents.

Ex- perienced teachers and school admin- istrators, primarily, take graduate work. The Bachelor's Degree is offered to per- sons completing four years of academic work with a maior in education. The Master of Education Degree is offered to graduate students who complete thirty-six hours of graduate work ap- proved by the student's advisor. The Advanced Master of Education Degree is offered to graduate students who complete thirty-six hours of grad- uate work above the Master's Degree in specialized approved areas. The Doc- tor of Education Degree is a profes- sional degree designed for leadership in the field of school administration, school supervision, and in specialized subiect matter fields. Teachers are in demand and this College offers vast opportunities. Mac Watkins, Jay Reid, Jimmy Wagner and Craig Foley take advantage of the Nursery School on campus. Many things take shape in the class for teaching art in ele- mentary grades. Sara Weinberg, a student teacher, instructs a class in Health Education at San Jacinto High School. 1 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 profession. 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. We have heard the Court Sessions in the Law School are better than Dragnet. How 'bout it, Howard?

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 ENGINEERING The purpose of education in the field of engi- neering is to develop an understanding of the fundamental principles of mathematics and sci- ence as integral parts of the various fields of specialization. This College provides an opportu- nity for students to develop technical skills and gain experience that will be valuable aids toward obtaining employment in the field of engineering. Architectural design can be nerve shaking at times COLLEGE OF PHARMACY The College of Pharmacy was authorized by the Board of Regents to be opened in the fall of 1947 when the University was petitioned by the Houston Pharmacy Liaison Committee. The College was needed to supply Houston and the surrounding cities with pharmacists. The Committee has continued to be an aid to the College of Phar- macy of the University of Houston as well as to the profession of pharmacy in the Houston area. 'M 1 .iw . j . 4.

COLLEGE OF OPTOMETRY The College of Optometry, the only one of its kind in the Southwest, opened in September of T952 as a direct result of a request from the Op- tometric Association. The College has three maior obiectives: to train students in the knowledge and skills of op- tometry, to provide an understanding of the basic facts in the field of visual science, and to cultivate an appreciation and respect for the social .and professional obligations of optometry. The five-year course is divided into two parts, the pre-professional and the professional program. Student Optometrist Howard Whit- marsh- checks Paula Sternecker's 52 eyes as her father looks on.

I I I 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- ing leaders in fields ranging from home 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 and why!

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 being loved. 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. -THE UNIVERSITY PRESBYTERIAN ,,, Q ,,,,, , I, Q ,.

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. 5223, 5 ae Ni-1 :ESEFE P: . aaa afmn': ,A o.,L.,.-, g y v,..,, sf g Z xqi ,5 av,,1gaffkfe,igf ' 'feta gf? af2,e,5.1f?.-iifzff N gm? may aaa.,-. --.f2,Qfwaf,,if A ,X D QP Circle? voted U Q A l 1,,,E1, n i ? w g n x55 Student Association Secretary n CQ CigaxigigelggggigiiymCjfiffae, n Q3 e u at u u 5103 -J tttt Carter 2tttt d Q. student Association nnitt Treasurer . ,"""""-MHA u1w'f3Y e 3 M i E lgt f i Student Qtuncil '2f- PgEQi36Ut Jim Gregory , ooo Student QQBHC11 2eCea?erY ,. ,..,, .

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.

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. -VICTORIA LINCOLN The Arts of Living I 1 Lk uni Spode "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.

This Coach Lee stated as being one of his maior aims as head coach of the 1954 Cougar football Team. "Almost everyone, I believe, was glad to have the season over for There were so many mis- haps which upset the team as a whole. How- ever, we were all happy To land a second place in The Missouri Valley Conference," stated a saddened head coach as he resigned from the staff. With the resignation of Lee, The University loses one of its biggest boosters. He has served us well and our hats are off to him for a iob welldone. CLYDE V.

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.
