Following the more formal opening of the ceremonies by Mr. Wademan, Gaylord Johnson made a speech on the selling of tickets, treating the sub- ject in a humorous and sarcastic way.

AN EDITORIAL POLICY Back in 1916 several journalistically inclined students banded together to form the first Thresher staff. They had high ideals for their paper; they had the good of Rice in mind when they sacrificed their time to give the school its first student news- paper ; and they worked that first year to put upon a solid founda- tion an enterprise which has survived for the past eleven years— a student undertaking that has met with success fr...

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS Page 5 CONFERENCE GRIP SEASOH UNDERWAY amsttTl rVtKRBDT Owls Given Prominence In Circuit On Friday, September 10, the Southwestern Conference foot- ball training got under way, most of the colleges starting their practice on that date. Though the dope-can has been overflow- ing for some time with the in- formation of the condition and membership of the various squads, predictions as to the identity of the champions for this year have been noticeably lacking, a situation which prom- ises a season of interesting and closely contested football. Provided that the pigskin chasers are spared the muddy fields that cramped their actions last year, indi- cations point to the most notable sea- son of Southwestern Conference his tory. With the exception of Arkansas, every member will engage in at least four contests with conference rivals, and Texas A. and M., S. M. 17., and Baylor will play five. Additional dis- tinction will be lent the season by a number of st...

This last year there have been men that will be vitally missed by the old students, and a score of them at that. These men have really carved for themselves and their Alma Mater au everlasting name.

With one 'f' or two?" "Well", said Joe, who was both too kind-hearted to wound the pride of Inquiring ignorance, and too gentle to hurt even a common adjective, "if you are going to use any, Bill, I reckon you might as well go the limit."

Austin Teachers College. An end was pointed to the scarcity of reserves which has been long hampering Coach J. W. Heisman when he was able to put three full teams on the field in the cowm of the game. The old men, mixed in on all three teams," gave steadiness to the number of new men in the line-up. The first team, led by Captajn Un- derwood, played the first quarter with a second eleven, headed by Hochuli, taking up the gage of combat in the ensuing chapter. Crain captained the third team which played the third quarter until the substitution of the first squad in a body. The second team returned in the middle of the final quarter and finished the battle.

ll - r .u. Aii vipUN WW IB AO Enroll; Fme Sports Freshman athletic material is unus- ually promising this year, with a large number of capable men representing every field of major college athletics. Though the greater part of these men were known to the coaches before the opening of school, the Rice mentors are being pleasantly surprised by the arrival of first class athletes of whose abilities no advance lnformagon had been received. Though the football material may not measure up to that of last year, this fact cannot be accepted as any dampener of enthusiasm, as the SUme squad of '26 was entirely too good to be accepted as a standard by which to measure squads of succeeding years. However, it is already evident that Coach Hamill will have a line- up from which many good varsity men can be developed. Much satisfaction is being expressed over Freshman basketball prospects. Not only have the men ability and ex- perience, but the desirable basket ball build is noticeable, several of...

After getting a little of the greenness knocked oft, however, the Owl offense began func- tioning in conference style. Only straight football was attempted by Rice: Orthodox line bucks, and off tackle runs formed the order of play, with a few double passes mixed in for variety.

Rice put over a touchdown with startling ease in the first 10 minutes of play. But—the Tiger had quite a few claws left. Overconfidence and inexperience on the part of the Owls, and an increased morale on the' part of the visitors seems te only logical explanation of the 6 to 6 tie, which was the best the Owls could get from the Trinity Tigers last Saturduy. The previous scores made by the two conference teams against Trinity and the consummate ease with which the Owl first team put over the touch- down In the first quarter were enough to knock any team off its balance.

Many a fair maid's heart would be filled with considerable con- sternation if she could but have seen the humbled posts her football hero had assumed, all for the sake of main- taining his stevedore figure. The summer of 1926 saw the football squad as scattered about as the usual faculty flutter. It's told that William Sah, Brooklyn built, took a hop to Bermuda; what he did there Isn't known, but it can be guessed. Whether the hula-hula girls gave William a fling or William did the same for them is another unknown—all the same he came back with a more he- nmnish look oil his upper teeth and calloused fingers—caused by continual caressing—of the piano keys.
