0> 'IIS ;51| msm THE VENETIAN GLASS (By ANDREB FALLIGANT.) Seldom, Indeed, does one meet with a boolc of uch exceptional beauty and artistry as Elinor Wylie's latest work, "The Venetian Glass Nephew." Her "Jennifer Lorn" made a name for her in the world of books and writers; "Jennifer Lorn" was different and there is nothing quite like "The Ve- netian Olass Nephew." She has add- ed new laurels to her crown by this, her latest offering, a prose fantasy which has for a background the Venice of the late eighteen century. It is truly a delightful book, each para- graph showing the deft touch of the artist, whose prose is almost poetry, rich in color and finished in detail. The story itself scintillates and sparkles as if it, as well as Virginio, were a product of the art of the glass- blower Luna and of the magic of the libertine M. de Chestelneuf, chevalier de Langeist. Its style is as beauti- ful and as fragile as if it were of that glass used by Luna in the making of Virginios lov...

Tbe baekfield was functioning prop- erly, but tbe magntflcent work of tbe ■rival line held the onslaught of the Owl ball carriers, and the ball bad to be punted. Both Wilson and Un- derwood unoorked some beautiful toe- work during the course of the game. Heavy especially did well, and many are of the opinion that his work over- shadowed that of the famed Wilson. The second half of tbe game saw the crushing of the Rice machine. The Aggies, refreshened continually by many substitutions, were better prepared to carry the fight on into the last portion of the game, and as a result the Heismen went down fighting. Two touchdowns were counted by the visitors before the game ended. The Aggies carried the ball down the field in an attack that was seldom thwarted, and two times rushed the ball over the final marker. Kiski made both of the Farmer t...

RICE ENDS SEASON WITH BAYLOR It is the part of the undergraduates who now study within these walls to make the alumni feel at home and show them a true and warm welcome. • ♦ When most of us were running around grammar schools some of these old timers were in the positions which we now occupy.

m THE THRESHER s: HOUSTON, TEXAS PRESS BOX By "TURP" Now it the time of the year when the apbrt scribes, both good and bad, begin selecting their "all-conference" teams, and a ballyhoo which usually lasts well Into the basket ball season is brought on. So, not to be outdone by the other would-be sport slaves, we offer our humble opinion on the selection of an all-conference eleven. • # * Thanksgiving Day brings down the curtain on a race which has been ex- citing, to say the least. The seven clubs comprising the Southwestern Conference have all turned out for- midable teams, and have done much in the way of placing th'e loop up iu the select group of college organiza- tions. As a rule most of the games were played ou muddy and sloppy fields, and the various aggregations have not played the sensational brand of ball which was expected at the start of the year. • * * But above the heads and shoulders of the majority of the plajfers listed as eligible players In the conference, certain...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS V. / II The Elder Sister SHOTS ON THE SHOWS By ANDRee FALLIGANT My introduction to Prank Swinner- ton came through Young Felix, a rath- er charming book with an odd ending which so impressed me that when •The Elder Stster" appeared, I man- aged to read it almost immediately. Just as 1 had enjoyed "Young Felix," so 1 did "The Elder Sister." The same easy-going, smooth-paced style of writing is found in both, as well as that distinctive touch of the author that seems to make his work outstanding. Perhaps the theme of "The Elder Sister" is more somber than that of "Young Felix:" it is trite enough—the triangle of two sisters who are in love with the same man, who marries one, the elder, to find j that she does not satisfy him, and who is forced to marry the other. They run off. leaving the elder sister, Anne, alone. The novel ends there, with Anne trying to picture to herself what her life will be without Mortimer, whom she deeply loved in her calm, enduring...
