To acquaint the student body in general with some of this work, to increase student interest in the club, and even to add some- thing to the literary quality of the Thresher columns, the editors have de- cided to publish each week in this column some of the shorter poems and essays written by the members of the Writing Club. This is the first of these columns to appear in the Thresher. * • For ages, Jesebel, queen of Isreal, has been to Jews and Christians alike the supreme example of the wicked and unholy woman.

mm I 1 VOLUME XII RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, OCTOBER 29, 1926 NUMBER 6 Rice Topics QPOltT scribes are unusually strong in their assertions that the Owls are definitely out of the Southwestern conference championship race. They are basing their contention on the fact that last Saturday Texas University defeated the Institute 20 to 0. • * * In itself the drubbing the Long- horns gave the Owls cannot be used as a definite criterion as to strength of Rice in comparison with other con- ference members. True, Texas had to play in a driving rain as much as did Rice, but the Heismen were drilled for an aerial attack. Texas was not. And therein lies the secret of the defeat. * • Practically every line play the Owls used against Texas had been used in in the previous four games. Texas had been drilled on defense for them for at least two weeks. Texas had prepared a running attack. Rain handicapped the Steers, of course, but not to the extent it did the Owls. * * * Rice meets three more c...

V ) THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS Page 3 LONGHORNS SLASH WAY TOMCTORY STEERS SMASH WAY TO WW i DRIVING RAIN; SCORE 20-0 By H. 8. McConnell. A dazed and bedraggled Owl watch- ed and doggedly resisted the mad charges of the Longhorns last Satur- day afternoon, as the Longhorns slash- ed their way to a 20 to 0 victory over the unsuspecting Owl. The game in itself has been ac- curately forecasted earlier this sea- son by Coach Heisman. In particular the writer recalls a banquet at the Rice Hotel, at which the whole team was present. During this banquet, Coach Heisman clearly stated that he was doing his best to combat the idea that Rice had a championship team this year. He pointed out clearly and precise- ly that no championship football team eould be built out of green material such as composed the Owl squad this year. Football is not so much a sport, as it is business. It can not be learned in six weeks, or even a year. It must be part and parcel of the bone and sinew of the player; it...

Where once the grassy turf rippled in the breeze, steam shovels are plough- ins up the dirt. Where once the Rice stude let out the cry, "Ride, Mister?" the ditch diggers and Rice graduate engineers are bellowing, "(Jiddyap horsey, there's still more crust." The Eagle esplanade, which has been a tradition at Rice ever since the first days of' the automobile, has suc- cumbed to the advance of civilization and has suffered its dignity to l>e un- dermined. Consequently. Rice is the loser, for her errant sons will find more difficulty in bagging a ride to the Rye Sinstitute under the present condition than when he was able to stand silhouetted against the evening .sky on the now concreted esplanade.

JUL E THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS Page 5 ; • -n The Melting Pot BY SAM BENNETT. "School Spirit" had its supreme test lust Saturday when we played the Longhorns from Austin. Ay, of you were there 1 know, and I am sure that you will agree with me that the stu- dent body never for an instant let up or smeared the slogan that "Rice bight Never Dies." Rice Fight is not dead, and what's more from now out all of us are going to stand behind the team us we have in the past- It is very evident that some were dis- appointed, others chagrined, and others took it like a dream, and it must be admitted that the writer conceived it as only a dream, at least until he read about it in the morning papers. • * * The aftermath of a football game that is lost is always unpleasant, but there is always consolation, and the consolation in this instance lies in the fact that we have the best gatueB ahead of us, and that the Owls have plenty of time to "do their stuff;" and if you have seen them in the late work...

w. o THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS 8 7-6 PIRATE GRID CREW STAGES FIGHT TO CHECK RICE TEAM Muted Point ^ After Touch- down Gives Rice Victory Rice came out of the fray with Southwestern last Saturday with a bare one point margin of victory, 7 to 6. But for the mi tied try for point after touchdown, the game might have been a repetition of the tie with Trinity. To Southwestern goes the credit for a game and courageous fight. Heavi- ly outweighted, they played like men possessed with unbeatable fury, and during the first half of the game looked almost like winners. Their play at end was second only in fineness and skill to their aerial attack. Balllew and Hodges held down the wing positions courageously, and most successfully, so that Owl gains around end were very few. A few end runs netted the Ricemen sub- stantial gains in midfield, but tries at this play, were not in favor when the ball was near the Southwestern goal line. Brilliant passing counted for. the Pirate touchdown, and in f...

There is nothing to lose in thia game. The fate of nations by no means hangs upon it. The psychological jinx must be appeased by now! The dope, as far as roe writer is concerned, all points to one conclu- sion—a brilliant game, and mad back- to-the-wall fight from the Rice Owls. It may not be victory; it may be de- feat, but at least It will be defeat after a glorious, furious scrap. "Baylor was determined to win Sat- urday and the Aggies were not de- termined enough to stop them. In football a team can be as good as it wants to be, and Baylor wanted to wjn that game worse than did A. and M.," is what Coach Bible said after Baylor slashed her may to unexpected victory last Saturday; and it holds equally true this Saturday in the case of the Owls.
