Let's Try — Together
Selfinterest is a normal thing. All of us are more in-
terested in our own personal welfare than in the welfare of
a person whom we have never seen. School is a part of
your life. Are you interested in it?
All of us know people who never accept situations. These
people like to capitalize on the imperfections of anything
with which they come in contact, including people, schools,
and organizations. They are seldom well-liked.
It can make a lot of difference in the athosphere of a
school if a few people constantly criticize and tear down
its activities. If, for instance, you hear a person make a
critical remark about a club or an organization, you will
be more likely to criticize it, too.
The same people do almost all the work in TJC, yet
when these people are recognized for the services they ren-
der, some of those who haven’t done anything complain. If
we all did something, no matter how little, we would get a
lot enjoyment and benefit from it.
“United we stand, divided we fall,” is a quotation that
could be applied to the activities of TJC. If we were to go
to an assembly, just think how much more successful it
would be. If everyone came to a basketball game, wouldn’t
it be a lot of fun ?
It is the right of an individual to have personal opinions.
Can you express these opinions in the right way? Let’s all
try to make TJC a little fun for everyone.
Just A Thought
Often, as co-editor of the Leopard Tales, I am asked,
“When does the next paper come out?” or “Why don’t we
have a paper every week? or told “There certainly wasn’t
anything interesting in the last paper.”
To those of us who spend much time and thought work-
ing on the paper these comments can be most discouraging.
Most of the TJC students do not realize that all news
gatherings, writing, editing, typing, and ad selling is done
by volunteers. The paper is not put out by a class as are
most school papers but by students interested in doing the
work and willing to do it on their own time.
Anytime you have an idea or suggestion please pass
it on to a member of the staff or the editors, we’ll be only
too glad to listen.
In the mean time, though, try to remember there are two
hard-working sponsors and a staff doing their best.
Speech Department Busy Preparing
For Spring Meet April 17 And 18
TJC’s speech department has
been most active during the past
month and will be during the next
few months preparing for the
Spring Speech Festival, which
will be held here on April 17 and
A group of students attended the
Baylor University speech tourna-
ment in Waco on February 6. Mol-
lie Monaghan entered oratory and
advanced to the finals. Maxine
Schuetze entered extemporaneous
Oldest and Largest Bank
speaking. Peggy Williams and
Margaret Phillips went to observe
the various activities.
Miss Franz, head of the speech
department, urged that all those
interested in doing oratory, radio
speech, extemporaneous speaking,
poetry reading, or dramatic read-
ing see her as soon as possible in
order that further preparations
can be made for the Spring Speech
To Hear Harmony
Maids Sing Today
The Harmony Maids are going
to Austin today to sing for a
business woman’s sorority. They
will sing in the Commons Build-
ing at the University of Texas.
Their numbers will be: “It’s a
Grand Night for Singing.” “Fall-
ing in Love with Love,” “Deep
Purple,” and “The Curse of an
The basketball team has made
a lot of trips and had a lot of
fun but the one thing that won’t
be forgotton is “Marv” walking
down the aisle hunting a blanket.
“Have you seen my blanket?”
rang in everyone’s ears all the
way from Houston.
It seems TJC has acquired some
new couples the last few weeks
and since it’s near Valentine Day
let’s take a look.
“Jody and Punk” have been seen
a lot and it looks as though they
really get along. Jody nearly jump-
ed out of the bleachers at the San
Antonio basketball game when
someone asked, “Who’s that girl
sitting on Punk’s lap?” With a
startled look she discovered only a
little 3 or 4 year old girl.
Jerry and Dorothy add their
names as Jerry insists that
Dorothy really didn’t step on his
hand but that he hurt it while
Twila and Tommy seem to en-
joy each other’s company. As
proof Twila let out a small yelp
as Tommy suggested he go after
the missing girl at the “Texas”
Even though A1 Lange has just
started to TJC it seems he has
found a girl who looks interesting.
Interesting enough to stare at her
through the library door anyway.
If you pass the new drama class
and ^ee the students doing odd
things,} don’t be alarmed for even
though i someone is trying to walk
like a$ elephant or act like an
idiot treat's just part of the course.
It seems they have a lot of fun.

Mrs. Tune and family sat at
the San Antonio basketball game
watching very quietly when her
5 year old boy looked up and said,
“See that number 10; that’s Ho-

him all of my life and he sure
is a good ball player.”

Sophs' Party Big

Leopards Lose To
San Antonio 89-34
On Home Court
A fighting TJC five was handed
its worst defeat of the season when
the San Antonio Junior College
cagers soundly licked the Leopards
89-34 in the high school gym Sat-
Outclassed and outplayed by the
visitors, the local five played hard
ball throughout the game. Though
the TJC quintet was able to shoot
freely they could not sink enough
of the shots.
The' San Antonio team had the
game well in hand from the begin-
ning with their crafty and tricky
maneuvering. Tom Tatsch led the
San Antonio five with 17 poins.
Between fifty and 100 fans saw
Albert Lange rack up eight points
to pace the Leopards. Before foul
ing out in the third quarter Ron-
ald Bums and Punk Wilson had
seven points each.
