THE T H RES HES ' Vi HO SKETCHES CLARA DAVIS Dresden Hair Conrad Admired In Charcoal Red hair she has, and cheeka and lips. And some say she has a bit of "red" in her brain. Certainly she's bolshevik about some things. Art critics call it Dresden coloring, and declare she is very paintable. And she is, because John Clarke Tidden, Rice's own has done three portraits of her, the latest of which is command- C'LARA OGDEN DAVIS (From a charcoal drawing by Agnes Lilienberg Tidden) ing much favorable comment as a part of his exhibition in the Houston Art Museum. He calls it "Clarisy." His wife, the adorable Agnes Tidden, has painted her, too. The charcoal drawing accompanying this article is by Mrs. Tidden. And Watson Ney- land, ex-Rice, Mr. Tidden's pupil, now in Senlis, France, has painted her. Clara Odgen Davis, to many peo- ple, is a red-headed newspaperman. Man, not woman. Not that she is masculine; she isn't. But she is fear- less and efficient and versatile, and independent. She lov...

THITHBB8HBR :: H O U8 T ON ,T E X A S m ■ : Band Has Worked Hard This Year; Yea, Brass Owls! When the Owl band leaves the field today it ends its part in making the football season a success. The brass owls have been present at every game played by the team and have contributed materially to the success of the cheering section. Houston is as proud of these "mus- icers" as Rice is. In the armistice day parade they marched up and down Main street in all the discomfort of a Houston rain. That is not the first II. U. crack "damp" occasion upon which they have doled out Kice's Honor to the ac- companiment of fulling raindrops. Re- call the millionth bale parade of the last year. This seems the best season the band has ever had. Fifty-eight people, in- cluding Slimes, tried out for the or- ganization. Of these only forty have been made into the permanent organi- zation. The rest went into the waiting list and as soon as one of the regulars falls down one of the waiters (not mess hall vari...

He talked of many things, soW of whieh perhaps did not pertain to football, the majority of which un- doubtedly did. But he talked, and as the words tumbled from his lips in that engaging and significant manner of his, the old ballyhoo of strife worked into a coach's existence by partials and im- partials, "the wise boys," and "the dumb Doras," seemingly ceased and Heisman became the central figure of as picturesque a tale as ever graced a novel. Coach Heisman told of his numer- ous connections with the sport of foot- ball and his long and active touch with the game, and his remarks were made impressive...

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS £ * DRAMATIC CLUB VINDICATED Tragedy, Coittedy And Fantasy Go Over Big By Merne L. Sharpley (Press Dramatic Critic) Three plays twice presented by the Rice Dramatic Club, at 8:30 p. m. Tuesday and Wednesday in Autry House, received generous applause from small, responsive audiences. Stars of the fall term productions, supervised by John Clark Tidden, un- questionably were Celeste Jones, in "The Double Demon;" Jack Glenn, in "Pan in Pimlico," and Tom Rather in "Last Masks." Deserving special mention also was the acting of Hazel Cannan, Mary Trammel and Tom Rice. The plays, as plays, have serious defects, both in technique and in plausibility. Despite that, for amateur theatrical productions, put on with deficient stage apparatus, they excel.

Exams are just around the corner. "OOME will flunk and some will stay, ^ but Rice will go on forever." * * WHERE is the cram artist who is starting in on his term's work. And there is the diligent student who has only the future to think about; the past holds no hideous reminders of incompleted work to torture him with. Then there is the football player, who is wondering if he will get his pass-port as a Christmas present, who is estimating his chances of being a part of Heisman's 1925 grid machine. And the basketball and track stars who are taking definite issue with probation. And of course there is the "pre-pro sufferer" who sees the ball and chain coming his way from out of a gloomy and storm-tossed se...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON. TEXAS 3 ■w*« BY WAY OF CRITICISM We are to imply that James Branch Cabell'* latest book, "Straws and Prayer-Books," published by Robert M. McBride & Co., is the culmination, or rather the epilogue, of his so-called Biography, of which Beyond Life, a book similar in conception to the pres- ent, is the prologue. At least, this is the idea that the author suggests to us in this book. Of course, it would be foolish to venture the statement that Cabell has chanted his Swan Song in Straws and Prayer- Books; rather say that he has fin- ished one episode, incarnation, or what- ever synonymous term one may wish to employ, of his literary life. There is wisdom and wit in this book. Cabell is candid, ironic, and ex- presses his opinions in no uncertain terms. He recounts his experiences with those who would, to use a phrase of his own, relegate his work to limbo. Yet he can do no less than thank the perpetrator of this action, inasmuch as Jurgen and his other books en...

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS IT'S BASKETBALL Work Hard in Winter , Sport Favorite Coach F. D. Ashcraft, last year's varsity coach, met about 20 freshmen basketball players in the gym last Monday afternoon, and held the first freshmen practice of the year. Hereafter practices will be held un- der the supervision of Coach Ashcraft daily until the end of the term. Fresh- men in possession of blue cards can not report for practices until the sec- ond term. In case that several men success- fully weather the finals of the first term, it is thought that the first year team will be more than just an ordi- nary team. Three all-State men are at present in the school, and should they stay, Rice will surely have some fine athletes. Besides these all-State men the freshmen class has more than a fair per cent of good players. A few men, in recent physical training classes, have shown good form, and should go a long way towards giving the Slimes a cruckorjack quintet. A schedule will be arrange...

According to Coach Heisman, work will begin immediately on the new playing field ,and will be in fine shape by the time baseball practice is called by Coach Bedenk early in February. Sixty loads of dirt, more or less, has been dumped on the field. Paul Nash, senior engineer, in company with Be- denk, laid off the new diamond last Friday. Work of spreading the dirt will be finished shortly. The field will be turtieback. After the dirt is spread properly, seed grass will be planted, and by time baseball practice rolls around, Rice should have one of the best playing fields in the State.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS MARGARET BRISBINE, FORMER RICE ARTIST, IS HOME AFTER GAINING WIDE RECOGNITION Rice is interested in the return to Houston of Margaret Brisbine, one of the most promising young artists whom the Institute can claim as its own. Miss Brisbine returned just be- fore New Year's from a stay in Paris, where she had been working for the past six months. She will be in Houston for the next year, living with her parents on LaBranch Street. Miss Brisbine entered the Institute in the fall of 1918, and immediately attracted attention for her work in John Clark Tidden's classes. She did the exquisite drawings of the Rice buildings which made the 1919 Cam- panile so attractive, and the next year did lovely color plates for the 1920 Campanile. Immediate Success In the fall of 1921 she went to Philadelphia, where she entered the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
