Schedule For 1947
The Leopards finally broke the
ice last Tuesday night when they
took a 27-23 victory over Navarro
Junior College of Corsicana. This
is the first win that the Leopards
have to their credit in four games.
The first two games, however,
were with Allen Academy and the
Texas team, and were not con-
ference games. The team lost
their first conference game to Clif-
ton by a count of 43-33, but the
Navarro game showed that the
Leopards have what it takes if
they can get on the ball.
The Navarro Bulldogs took an
early lead of 4-0, but the Leopards
overtook them and kept their lead
throughout the remainder of the
game. TJC led 16-10 at the half.
During the half Patsy Easley and
Louise Thompson led Leopard sup-
porters in yells, and a group of
high school band boys rendered
some very good music.
Our teaifr came back in the sec-
ond half to rack up 11 points, while
the Bulldogs hit the basket for 13.
Outstanding players of the eve-
ning were Hayward Simms, who
was credited with 10 points, and
Dempsey of the Bulldogs, with 9
Starters were Captain McLerran,
Gray, Taylor, Simms, and David-
son for the Leopards, and Bryant,
Reagan, • Weaver, McNabb and
Dempsey for the Bulldogs.
The Leopards are weak on hit-
ting the basket, but they look good
when handling the ball.
A crowd of about 200 fans who
attended the game was presented
with 40 minutes of action between
fine teams. However, there were
not too many students present. All
the members of the team say that
student support at games is inval-
The TJC Tennis Club is expect-
ed to snap out of its state of in-
ertia after midterm exams. Mem-
bers of the club will meet Friday,
Jan. 24, at 10:30 A. M. on the ten-
nis courts to have pictures made
for the annual.

A Spanish street scene in cele-
bration of the new year was rep-
resented by the TJC Pan-Ameri-
can Club at their assembly pro-
gram on Jan. 14. Stage decora-
tions were planned by Florence
Daniels, and the program was an-
nounced by Don Humble.
Featured entertainers included
Trinidad and Concepcion Palomino,
Lupe Reyes, and Alice Palomino
and Rebecca Flores. Trinidad and
Concepcion did two traditional
dances in authentic costumes. The
grade-school-age brother and sis-
ter were received enthusiastically
by the audience, and their per-
formance showed poise, careful
training, and a natural talent for
dancing. Lupe Reyes, a Temple
High School student, also did two
native dances, accompanying her-
self with castanets. The dancers
were accompanied by recorded
Spanish music. Alice and Rebecca,
who are also high school students,
sang a Spanish song. All of the
entertainers showed an accurate
knowledge of their native cus-
toms, and a desire to impart their
knowledge to their audience. Jeann
McEldowney and Robert Shaffer,
club members, presented a short
skit in Spanish.
Other club members who par-
ticipated were Billye McLendon,
Anna Lou Nettles, Cary Thornton,
Florence Daniels, William Pearson,

erine Owen, David Phillips, Fred
