THE THRESHER it^HS HOUSTON, TEXAS OWLS AND LONGHORNS— (Continued from Page One) past few days.. And every one of these athletes la fired with the ambi- tion to beat Texas foe the second time in two years. Last year Texas came down to Rice confident that they had the best team, and that Bice would not serlousjy threaten them in a victorious march- But the dreams of the Longhorns were shattered and knocked to the mercy of the fou%r winds. This year they year they don't know just what to expect. Some reports have it that Rice is very weak, while many critics claim that the team has not been per- mitted to open up its attack, with the Verdict of "quantity unknown." But taking the last half of the Rice- Arkansas contest as a eriteron, Rice is capable of playing a sensational game, a brand that would bring joy to any coach's heart, and make the ag- gregation feared by all. Texas Univer- sity in all probability is quite wary of the Owl's attack, and reports from the Capital City have it th...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS Hercules to be Grid Mentor of Spook U; Assisted by Theseus Ghosts need no longer be illitreate and uneducated; ambitious ghosts, who are anxious to get ahead, need not be handicapped by the lack of a college education, because they can now be taught to work Math, to con- jugate French verbs, and to write themes, according to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, spiritualistic enthusiast, and incidentally author of "Sherlock Holmes." Artie has just returned to London from the international psychic recent- ly held in Paris, and is full of optim- ism for his ghost friends and plans to help them. Soon we will probably hear of the establishment of a col- lege especially for ghosts, offering de- grees in betters, Science, and Art. Courses in table rapping, seance holding and general trouble making will be strictly taboo; the course in correct behavior for well-trained ghosts will be especially recommended by the faculty to be composed of Aristotle, Demosthenes, Helen of Tro...

THE THBEBHE* :: HOUSTOW, TEXAS SAM HOUSTON DECO- RATED BY SLIMES MUCH REVERED GENERAL AIDS IN BOOSTING SCHOOL lu the wee sma' hours of Thursday morning, six furtive men emerged from West Hall and stealthily made their way to the Sam Houscton monu- ment, where business of a very deep momentous nature was to be done. This stalwart band of nocturnal ad- ventures was composed—for the most part of members of the Slime persu- asion. On arriving at Sam's perch, a large white object, once used as a sheet on some Slime's bed, was unfolded and ropes attached thereto. General Sam, who was trying to snatch a few winks and had changed his extended arm to a more comfortable position by his side, was awakened by the busy prep- arations of the sextet. However, when he perceived the group to be Rice men he winked pleasantly and went back to sleep. Everything being made in readiness, the erstwhile sheet was raised aloft, high <m the noble shoulders of the General. It bore in heroic letters the sim...

Coach Heis- man has never ceased his warning to the men that they must keep up in their work if they are to do anything on the football field. All men with the common sense that it takes to play the game should listen to his words of advice which are as sound in regard to studies as they are to details of football. —O—O—O— Legitimate caus...

Such can be found on the campus, even tho it is through the trees and across the creek. The Field House, hotbed, headquar- ters of law and order for all athletes, is minus a hall committee. Each year the head coach recommends two men, athletes who are working their way through school, as caretakers of the gymnasium. This year Prather and Rogers hold forth in all the glory befitting one not subject to the Bnooping of the "hall committee." On the second floor, just over the office of Coach Hetstnan, is the coziest, snugest room on the Rice campus. The room itself Is neither small nor large, but th« at- mosphere 1b one of "Home, Sweet Home."
