- urL#« ' \ '• Beat VOLUME X RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, OCTOBER 31, 1924 NUMBER 7 Rice Topics B EAT TEXAS! This cry is on the lips of everyone at Rice today. It has sounded and re- sounded over the campus and through the halls all during the week, and Sat- urday it will be augmented into one voluminous battle cry when the Owls dash into glorious battle against a powerful team of Steers from Texas University. Beat Tiim TT WILL not be easy. It is asking a lot from our little team. But we are asking it and we are asking it with all our hearts and souls. It is not impossible. It is entirely possi- ble, though difficult. It will mean fight, and endurance, and ever so much grit. Beat Texan Fight—the Heismen have it. We hope to God they will use it Satur- day; for we would rather beat Texas University on the gridiron than any- thing else in the whole world—right now. Beat Texas—— So, gang, if you will fight and give us everything you have Saturday— even with a loss—you will have done ...

COURSE FINISHED Girl Scout Director Finishes Course Pauline Wherry, national instructor of Girl Scout leaders and regional di- rector for Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico, has just completed her third annual visit to Rice Institute. A course in Girl Scout leadership has been given every day at Autry House for the past two weeks, spon sored by a group of Houston women headed by Mrs. F. M. Law. Miss Wherry, a college woman, was full of enthusiasm for her work. She is a native Texan, B. A. and B. S. in Home Economics from the University of Texas, M. A. from University of Kentucky. "Always glad to come to Houston and Rice," she said. Engaged in contact work prior to her crusade here, Miss Wherry visited numerous Girl Scout councils, travel ing extensively from her headquarters, New York City. "Rice girls are afraid of the cold," the director said, questioned if Girl Scout co-eds were different from those at other colleges. The number of recruits enlisted for an overnight hike last Saturda...

T H E T ff R E8¥£ E i: HOUSTON, T E X A 8 IF THE OWLS expect to "Beat Texas," Coach Heisman's buckfield will necessarily have to show infin- itely more speed than they displayed against Texas Christian University. The Owl line is "there," and it re- mains for the backfield combination to complete the dirty work. * * 4c ^ DOC STEWART has a line that will favorably compare with Heisman's forward wall, and his backfield, while probably not superior to Rice's in a man to man comparison, has more speed and drive. * * * TAKING IT all in all, things do not look overly bright for Rice's stal- warts, and the game takes on an all too dangerous aspect. The tin-horns, trying as usual to buck the "sentiment" money, will probably be more wary than usual this week. Watch your points, as a gentle tip from us. * * * M MKROl S I I'SETS marked Southwestern conference play last week. T.

And the Heismen showed that they are real gridiron warriors. But it is not well to cast hopes too high.

Iconoclastic Stodes Shock Faculty At State Publication of the first, October number of The Longhorn Magasine, official literary magasine of the Uni- versity of Texas, provoked a storm of divergent opinions on the forty acres, "Persons of your age—and mine, for that matter—seem to find great difficulty in any normal treatment of sex. . . Placid acceptance of its existence and its function is hardly to be found. . This magazine is intended for reading in neither bawdy houses nor nunneries." Those are the words of Hubert Mew- hinney, editor-in-chief, a delightfully naive, timid, skinny, large-eyed youth who smokes Tareytons' and expert' ments with co-eds on the sly. "Horribly vulgar and indecent!" ejaculated half of the faculty, the lobsters—in unison. The other half, the peacocks, praised it mildly and muttered something about the "growing spirit of revolt." "Um! Don't go too far, boys!" pleaded President Walter Splawn. What was in that...

m ' i i" • U'<- fc'- ■■"; ■ THE THRESHER :s H0U8T0N, TEXAS LITTLE WILLIE IPSWICH, our favorite dopester, says that if the Rice Owls win from Pete Cawthorn's Austin College Kangaroos this Friday afternoon they are sure fire bets for conference honors this year. Willie says that Austin College de- feated Baylor, Baylor defeated A. & M., A. £ M. held S. M. U. to a tie, S. M. U. defeated Texas, Baylor de- feated Arkansas University, T. C. U. defeated Oklahoma Aggies ( and Rice has defeated T. C. U. Therefore, by the process of elimination, the Owls are undisputed conference champs. Simple, ain't it? # * * ANY CLUB that can hold together like the Owls have clung to Coach Heisman thus far in the season, is not likely to crack. So, with a couple of conference wins under the strongbox and with the half- way mark reached with a clean slate, Rice shows more promise to cop the loop title this year than any . other team in the circuit. * * • OP COURSE there are factors to be reckoned wit...

TBS TBBE8HJER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS GALLANT YOUTHS SUCKED IN Valiant Jockusch Is First Victim Of Thug It was Hallowe'en. Excitement was in the air. A night of merriment was spurring the old Owl on in his prep- arations for the battle that was to be staged the next day with "Doleful Doc's Longhorns." Feeling was running high and fools were running loose. Something was loosing the bonds of restraint from everyone and queer things were be- ginning to happen. It must have been in the atmo- phye; for Jokusch got in the jug, and Slime Red Barthelme took it upon himself to assemble all the downtown drunks and lead them in favorite Rice yells. f Manhood Rose Jockusch still talks of his huir-rais- ing experience. "Gentleman Jock" was valiant and for once his manhood rose to the surface and expressed itself, making of him a modern Sir Walter Raleigh. There he stood, on a street corner, a bit <if a smile playing about his lips as he watched the merry-makers paint the town led. Suddenly his smil...

THI8 slogan expresses the heart's desire of every student at Rice, Yet to realize physically its meaning will call for every ounce of strength that the Heismen have developed, will call for a determined display of in- spired football, will call for a great number of Owl students on the side lines at College Station, pleading with their warriors to fight as they never have before for Rice's glory. * * * A VICTORY over the. Aggies will ** mean much to the Owl team. It will mean more than some students perhaps realize.

I S/i'1 ,v THE THRESHER HOUSTON , TEXAS I told you o—we lost the blithering Ana tin |um just beeiUM we were not in the right frame of mind to piny the brand of football to- win from to good n team u they were. They played juat about the kind of football I ex- pec ted they would, and that ia why I waa afraid of them. On the <other hand I waa equally scared about our own team, for I knew that we were not in any frame of mind to play a team like the Kangaroo*. We were not diagracefully beaten— in fact moat anything would have won the game. If we had used a little bet- ter judgment in signals, or if we had not fumbled a couple of times deep in our territory, I suppose we would have won it. Any way, it has at any rate brought our mindB back to the football ahead instead of the football behind, and that will mean well for the remaining two games. Spirit Good The team and the coaches certainly did appreciate the way the student body stuck up for the players and the way they assembled ab...

Yes, we finally lost but only after giving them a scare that they won't be able to forget for the next ten years. I don't think it's necessary for me to go into many details about that game—not, at least, for those who were so lucky as to see it for them- selves. Before we went up I told you that if we didn't win I didn't think it would be our fault. Remember that? Well, I'm afraid I had altogether too much "prophetic vision."

THE THRESHER :s HOUSTON, TEXAS • Prof Makes Find; Formerly Taught Chemistry Here Friends of Dr. G. L. Wendt, for- merly instructor in the Institute and now dean of the school of physics and chemistry at Pennsylvania State Col- lege, will be interested in an article concerning a recent discovery of his that appeared in the Literary Digest for November 15. This discovery concerns the removal of the enormous energy stored within the atom into a usable form. Such a scheme would make the present sources of fuel and power unnecessary and, to quote Dr. W. D. Bancroft, pro- fessor of chemistry at Cornell, "Such a discovery would be as important as the discovery of electricity." The experiment is based upon the pi'.ssing of energy through a vacuum lube in which a tungsten wire had been placed. More energy is given off than is passed in and the tungsten is changed, to helium. The enormous heat of 60,- OdO ili'Ki'i-cs F. was used in the ex- periment, •Some idea of this temperature may be gaine...
