# |\ ^rjr i.% iw X fin JL^ VOLUME X RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, OCTOBER 3, 1924 NUMBER 3 STAGE IS SET FOR OPENING GAME Rice Topics TWO HUNDRED pounds from tackle -*■ to tackle, is the weight of the Sam Houstonians tomorrow. Well, "what the hell do we care?" An ele- phant weighs 2600 pounds from end to end, but he ain't worth a hang in a football uniform. rnOMORROW will be what often is referred to as an "auspicious oc- casion." The auspiciousness being the fact that a new system of football taught by new coaches to new men is being turned loose in the Southwest- ern Conference. Besides the several thousand students and fans, a critical gang of scouts from other schools will be in the stands. Nobody knows whsit to expect. The game likely will be close, but in any case, page 1 of a chapter in Rice gridiron history will be written. Let's make it a page easy to read. * + • /"IF COURSE, it's none of our busi- " ness, but The Thresher has al- ways wondered just why Rice foot- ball gam...

Subscription Kates <£.50 per Year, 10c per Copy Jack Glenn Robert Vaden Logsdon . . .Editor-in-Chief Business Manager HE GOES THROUGH HELL. Cartoonists, narrow-minded old fogeys and cynics are wont to describe the college youth as a fluttering self-centered somebody. All right, let them; but we can disagree if we like. The Thresher does disagree. Eleven hundred Rice students al- ready are neck deep in work, work of a kind that nine-tenths of their critics couldn't handle. Eight hours of mental labor is more exacting on a person, mentally and physically, than eight hours of larm work. And the average day's work for a Rice man or woman is eight hours. Proud of his school, confident of his own ability, the Ri...

THE fHRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS CHICAGO ALUMNI ORGANIZE Seven Rice Exes Begin New Club Special to The Thresher: Chicago, 111., Oct. 2—Seven former Rice students on September 19, gath- ered around a dinner table in the Stevens Restaurant here and organ- ized a Chicago-Rice Club. During the meal reminiscences of past events of the "good old college days" were discussed. The members of the newly formed club are to meet once a month at one of the prominent restaurants in Chi- cago. R. S. Bickford is to act as secretary until the club is completely organized and the officers elected. The men present at the first meet- ing were: A. L. Carr, J. Henry, R. D. Langley, J. W. McFarland, R.

THE THRESHER, t: HOUSTON, TEXAS COACH ASKS FOR MORE SLIMES Meeting Called For Monday In Amph By Gordon Turrentine, '28. Due to the fact that Freshman foot- ball material is not reporting to the coaches as it should, Coach Nicholson of the Rice Institute Freshmen has ordered a called meeting of all first year men interested in athletics at Rice. The meeting is to be held next Monday, probably in the physics am- phitheatre. Since football practice for the Slimes was instigated, only a small percentage of eligible material has been reporting regularly. More than 50 uniforms have been issued to Freshmen, and daily counts show that on an average not more than 25 men report each day. Coach Nicholson is especially anx- ious that all football Slimes living in the city come out for the practices, A fair percent of the dorm athletics are reporting, but there is a lax of ma- terial from town. Freshman football activities this year are taking an im- portant part in the athletics of the school. ...

THE THRESHER is HOUSTON, TEXAS FROM THE PRESS Something's wrong up in North Texas. Baylor and S. M. U. both got scared stiff. Simmons held Baylor to a 10 to 6 win, and Denton Normal held S. 11. U. to a T to 3 victory. Not enough to shout about. * * * And they can't say it was purposely done, either. Four points or three points is not safe enough margin for any team. Texas U., with 27 to 0 over Southwestern, could afford to pull out the first team and run in subs, but not so when a single touchdown would have changed the victory. * The Oklahoma Aggies, too. They downed Southwestern State Teachers only 9 to 0. Coach Maulbetch probably will do some serious thinking before he predicts a conference champion- ship. If he was "holding out," he chose a close score to do it on. It doesn't sound logical. * * * And our old friend, Phil Arbuckle, is facing a stiff schedule at Louisiana Polytech. His team plays some hard games, including Tulane and Loyola. But Phil has the former Owl, Bill Simps...

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS ! COME LOOKIE HERE AT THIS! 1 CALVIN IS HEAD OF JUNIORS "Biggest Prom Ever" Promised to Seniors Travia h. Calvin of Houaton was elected president of the Junior claw at a meeting held in the physics am- phitheatre Wednesday at 12:30. Calvin was president of the Sopho- mores, this year's Juniors, for a term last year, and his popularity is shown by his receiving the honor to head the Juniors this year. The office of vice-president and sec- retary-treasurer were supplied last spring when Marjory Ilfrey of Hous- ton and Lawrence S. McWhorter of Palestine were elected to fill these places. President Calvin in his "impromptu inaugural address," pointed out the importance of having a lively class this year and of making the Junior prom the biggest affair that has been staged in many years at Rice. No plans for this prom were made, nor was a date set. This was left to be taken into consideration at the begin- ning of the second term. "Oh! See the little slimes...

VOLUME X RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, OCTOBER 10, 1924 NUMBER 4 Rice Topics T^OW WHY DID E. O. (Edgar -^Odell) Arnold apologize for those first three issues of the Thresher?" Every stude from Sophorome up knows that he is the best newspaper man at Rice and that those issues he edited were vibrant with the early season enthusiasm that creates so good an im- pression with everyone. It is only a wonder that he had time to take over the job at all, with all the other writ- ing he has to do. But modesty will out. —O—O—O— TT IS PAINFUL to have to keep harping on the Main Street busi- ness of catching rides to and from town; but when a fellow deliberately walks up out of his turn and hogs a ride in front of those who have been waiting half an hour for the much de- sired vehicle—well, it just demoral- izes the whole situation, that's all. * V * -• DDT BY THAT it is not meant that the students should play Alphonse and Gaston every time a kind-hearted person brings his auto to a stop and a...

Subscription Rates •2.50 per Year, 10c per Copy Jack Glenn Editor-in-Chief Robert Vaden Logsdon Business Manager A WORD OF APPRECIATION It may be contrary to good newspaper ethics to use a portion of the editorial column in a purely personal manner, but the editor takes this opportunity of expressing his sincere thanks to those student friends who, during his recent illness, so unhesitatingly took charge of The Thresher for three weeks. During these weeks E. Oren Arnold, former Thresher editor and at present writer for half a dozen Texas newspapers, acted as editor-in-chief. He took over the editing of the paper at a time when it would have been impossible for a less skilled or experi- enced individual to mak...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON. TEXAS first game better than score; faults' were in right direction; coach appeals for* tutors' aid By Coach Heisman Not so bad—not so bad! Made some mistakes, yes, some fumbles, some er- rors; but we might have made more. In fact I thought we would make more than we did. But the boyB certainly came through with that fight stuff 100 per cent, and that's good enough for me. Mechanics and technique I'll answer for—easy enough to teach them that if only the bunch never stops fighting. ICE BROKEN The offense was about up to what I expected; the defense was better, much better than I had dared hope for. Our game was better than the score indi- cated. Let it go at that. The team has broken the ice. Next Saturday the men should not be so nervous; they will be able to stay "on side" better and won't draw so many penalties. Being over-eager to "get at 'em" is a fault in the right direction. The men showed good condition. Xn neither half did we take out time the number, ...

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON. TEXAS THE HEISMEN HAVE OEOIDEO NOT TV SHAVE UNTIL AFTER TNI NAME The threat being made by the Christians at Fort Worth assumes more "dangerous proportions with each succeeding week. The T. C. U. aggregation, as yet undefeated, and with one conference scalp tucked away, will accomodate the Rice Club with the latters open- ing conference game, on October 28. Oklahoma Aggies bit the dust be- fore the Christian onslaught last Sat- urday by the score of 17 to 10. Not so many, thinks you, but it is signifi- cant inasmuch as the Oklahoma A. and M. crew is not a team of weak- lings. And before the Aggies, the State Teachers and Daniel Baker felt the sting of defeat under the T. C. U. leash. And thats the team that Rice has picked to open their conference year. Oh, well more work for some undertaker! The students ward in Setons In-; firmary at Austin is still overcrowded with Texas U. ruffians who waxed vociferous at the Howard Payne-Texas (lame last week.

THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS I i. CAUGHT OWLS OFF (MUM; By John Heisman Southwestern caught the Owla de- cidedly off guard last Saturday. Frankly, coaches as well aa players were taking a "bit of nap" because of the way Texas and the Aggies had already trounced the Pirates, the re- sult of which was that the Varsity was not properly keyed up for the stern contest it proved to be. We can draw some comfort from the way the team got together after the intermission and showed that it could meet a crisis bravely; that augurs well for the future, at any rate. Men of Rice, we just must get that fight- ing tradition, that unyielding, undying spirit that will not be denied. No, it doesn't come all at once, and its up to every man in college to help inspire it. L. S. U. Menace After seeing the kind of game the Pirates could and did put up against us I get considerable out of the fact that though the first half was against us we entirely outplayed them in the second and still won by a decisive ...

Aydelotte, former instructor in education at the University of Mis- souri at Columbus, arrived at Rice Friday to assume his duties as in- structor in education. He will have charge of the overflow of 135 students in Education 110 and 210. Aydelotte graduated from Central Wesleyan College at Warrenton, Mis- souri in 1916, and received his M. A. degree from the University of Mis- souri in 1922. During the past year he has not engaged in academic duties and as a result he states that he is able to resmue his work, even more efficiently than he did before his va- cation. "Rice is not nearly as large as the University of Missouri but its artistic and architectual beauty surpasses that of the University by far and stands out as one of the world's most beau tiful colleges in these respects," he declared.

Ask any one who elbowed around in the commons last Saturday night. A SWARM of ants—that's the way it looked in a bird's eye view from the little balcony in our beloved hash- house.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS 3 SLIMESTACKLE TERRELL Frosh Outweighed By Dallas Prep School The Slimes will have a hard nut to crack Saturday when the Terrill Prep school of Dallas is played at Rice Field. The game, the opening of the year for the Freshmen, will start at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Terrill has an enviable reputation in Texas, and according to advance dope have a world beater this season. Three games have been played so far by this aggregation, and all have been won by large scores. The Freshmen will be up against a line that will average a good 190 pounds, while the backfield is reported to tip the scales at an average of 170. About 165 Pounds. The Slimes, on the other hand, will present a line averaging approxi- mately 170 pounds, while the back- field is around 165 avordupois. But what our Slimes lack in weight, they will more than make up in fight and speed. In the late scrimmages with the varsity crew, the Freshmen showed good form, and at times rushed the vars...
