The annual South- western Conference meet will be the final competition of the year for the Owls. Prospects for a Rice triumph are bright, according to Coach Hjertberg, and, should nothing happen to the men before enter- ing into the meet against the Frogs, the Owls are destined to win their first conflict of the year. The coach is confident that every man on his squad will be in condition for the invasion of the enemy. Texas Christian, like Rice, has not won a meet thiB year. While the work of the visitors of Saturday has been of a high class calibre throughout the Beason, they do not have a well-bal- anced aggregat...

THFTHRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS By Dr. ISSUE OF THRESffiR IN LATE MAY Well, well, well. Here I am back at home again, aft- er having been torn to pieces and been sent over the en- tire country and placed in all sorts o f compromising situations just to please a few class editors that had absolutely no re- JA. WJK\ gard for my com- fort or the dignity of my position. But I got a certain amount of en- joyment out of it. It is always amus- ing to watch the infantile play of embryo editors, either those trying to be serious and making amusing spectacles of themselves or trying to be humorous and only making themselves comical. But they en- joyed themselves, so who am I that I should discourage them in their play. True no great amount of tal- ent for the future was developed, at least, if such were present it very carefully hid itself where it could not be located, and if the purpose of class issues be to locate and develop hither- to unknown talent, the experiment cannot be said to have b...

:: HOUSTON, TEXAS AGGIES DOWN OWLS IN MEET Hooten Comes to Front in Hurdles; Sprints Upset Dope Despite a stirring fight in every event on the program, Coach Hjert- berg's track team bowed to defeat last Friday to the Texas Aggies by a count of 77to S9'/>i. It was the first time this season that the Owl aggregation was heat en so decisively, the other two meets both being finished with a small margin between the total scores. Even though the Rice harriers were on the short end of the tally, the Blue and Grey warriors put up as great a fight in the meet as the Aggies have had this season. Rice lost, not because she did not try. but for tile simple reason that A. and M. hud too many Rood men in the meet. The Aggies took the lead from the the very start, and never relinquished it. Rice tried desperately to overcome this advantage, but could not make the grade. Rice lost first and second places in the loo and 220-yard dashes, some- thing that had not been done this sea- son.

.5 VOLUME XI RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, MAY 7, 1926 NUMBER 29 NEW MAGAZINE FOR RICE Rice Topics THE success of the Rally Club's First Rice Nite comes as an ex- cellent start for an annual event that will serve to place Rice in close touch with the people of Houston. * * • Very creditable performances were turned in by Lee's Owls, the band, the Dramatic Club, and the Glee Club. They showed up to the satisfaction of an appreciative audience. * * * Even with a night that was ren- dered disagreeable by a heavy down- pour, the crowd was of a very re- spectable size. This shows that a large number of people, not directly connected with Rice, feel a real live interest in school affairs. ♦ * * This also forecasts that future events will be even more generally attended, and insures the Rally Club that its efforts in producing another affair next year, one to be bigger and better, will be observed and ap- preciated by more than just those in direct contact with Rice. * * * The idea prese...

The Owl leader accounted for 42 points in the fouf meets, and walked off with the lion's share of the honors. Stancliff brought to a close a spectacular career, and only once more will he wear the Blue and Grey of the school he has served so well. The annual Southwestern conference track meet, to be held in Port Worth May 14 and 15, will find Fred competing for his final time for Rice. For two years Stancliff was captain of his team, and during this period of leadership he showed sterling qualities.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON. TEXAS •hv Rice Track Team Smothers Frogs Under Avalanche of Points; Top Score of Year The Rice Institute track team brought to a fitting close the 1926 season last Saturday, downing the visiting Texas Christian University aggregation by the score of 92 to 25. It was the largest total score to be piled up in the Southwestern conference during the year. The meet with the Horned Frogs ended the dual-meet season for Rice. The annual Southwestern conference tourney to be held in Port Worth May 14 and 15, will be the last time this year that the Owls will compete. Hire took the load at the very start and wan never stopped by the Frogs. Texas Christian University was clearly outclassed, both in the field and track events. Only ill the two hurdles.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS S n HAS VISIONS OF WINNING CHASE Play at the Southwestern Con- ference ball race is narrowing down to three teams, and from now till the end of the season it will be a hot fight for the championship. Texas Christion University is still leading the chase, with Texas University and the Texas Aggies pressing close on the heels of the Horned Frogs. Baylor University still has an outside chance to win, but it is doubtful if either of the first' three will falter sufficiently for the lagging Bears to catch up. A couple of losses at the start of the race has done much to keep the Baylor squad from winning. Texas Christian, after losins two straight games two weeks ago, has re- covered from these setbacks, and is tearing things up right and left in a stubborn fight for its first conference championship. Itice Institute beat the Frogs out of the flag last year by trimming them in the final contest ot the year. Hezzie and Hobo Carson, the Frog pitching staff, ha...

That is not the way to be a success in this world. The old motto of Davy Crockett: Be Bure you're right then go ahead" should be changed to something like this: Whatever you are going ahead about, is bound to be right. This is the keynote of the great message that I am to deliver to tlw graduates of this institution. This is merely a preparation and a notifica- tion that I am going to speak. I should hate for anyone to miss such a great treat. I shall tell the graduates this because I want them to be like me. If thejr ever succeed in properly emu- lating the example I have set for them they may be said to have succeeded indeed. (Anyone turning in a Blinkogram fit to print has to pay for the dirnks.)
