SLHS Campus Chatter - February 15, 1929

Sugar Land High School published a student newspaper for all of Sugar Land ISD back in the 1920s.  It was called Campus Chatter.  (I've posted copies in the past.)

Here are a couple of short article from the issue circulated on February 15, 1929.  The front page story was the County Basketball Tournament, which was coming up later in the week.  The Sugar Land boys team lost to Richmond earlier in the week, but the paper was confident Sugar Land would do well in the tournament.  (Unfortunately, I don't have any photos from the '28/'29 school year to associate with names in the box score.)

A column on events at the colored school, eventually named M. R. Wood School, featured a fund drive to buy a new piano.  (I don't recognize any of the names.)

Click here to view all four pages of the paper, but note that a small section of the front page has been cut out.  (This copy comes from the Rozelle Collection at the Sugar Land Museum.)
