In touching upon the high points in the lite of his warm friend, Captain Baker pictured Mr. Rice first a young storekeeper in Springfield, Mass. He recalled how Mr. Rice sold his Hold- ings in New England, loaded a few possessions of a boat and followed horseback and by boat to Galveston. The boat bearing Mr. Hide's prop- erty never was heard from after lift- ing anchor for Galveston, and as a result when the new citizen of Hous- ton urrivi>d at the foot of Main Street in November, 18:17, he was friendless and almost penniless.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEX A3 Page 8 GAKTOY.HC.A. BY 30-19 SCORE Rally fa Second Period Faili To Overcome the Triangle Lead The Owls lost their first start when the V. M. C. A. five rang up a 30 to 19 victory over the Blue and Grey last Friday. Superior team play and accurate basket work rolled up the Triangle lead in the first half, and although the Rice hoopsters fought on even terms In the second period, they were - unable to score enough points to offset the early ad- vantage of the Y men. The Rice defense was somewhat er- ratic In the first period and the ac- curacy of their close shots was also uncertain. The Y squad took advan- tage of this stage fright to score IS po'nts while the Owlets only looped 6. The second period was closer, however, and Morris' dribbling, Schroeder's passing, and the general scrappiness of the rest enabled Rice to score on a par with the Triangle crew. Travis Calvin, Rice athlete of last year, had two ribs broken in a melee which resulted In his cr...

We shall talk about why boys leave home. Let us close our eyes and be car- ried to faraway Bulgaria. There amidst the pine forest we can see the pieturesue figure—silhouetted against the setting sun—of a shep- herd boy leading home the goats for the evening meal. Nature speaks to him—everything is calm and peace- ful amidst this touching rural scene.

After Merle Comstoelthad expressed his appreciation of the honor that had been done him, Coach Heisman took the floor. He passed around three ex- pensive Oruen wrist-watches for the examination of those present, and an- nounced that they would be given to the three best fighters on the squad next year. Coach Heisman stated that he will remain it Rice until after the Freshman exams, when he will leave only to return again before the end of January. Dr. Lovett paid a tribute to Hous- ton as the hospitable home of Bice institute, and showed that Rice had repaid the hospitality, in that Hous- ton has become, in addition to a center of cotton, railroads, lumber, and oil. the location of Rice, whose fama has gone much farther than any economic reputation the town may have had. coaching staff...

Bach hairy-ear in turn played the part of a potential corpse while his companions practiced the Schafer method of reviving shocked and drowned persons. The drill was very successful; although several near- casualties resulted from too enthusias- tic manipulation of the corpses, Jimmy Hunter was disqualified tor holding out on his rescuer and staying dead too long. His defense was that "ar- tificial respiration should be continued (if necessary) for four hours without interruption," and that he was just giving Mason Loekwood a good work- out. "Oie" Godsey was docked 10 points for unnecessary roughness in resuscitating the professor in charge. That the class as a whole entered into the spirit of the game was evidenced by the udvice given to each pair on the table. "Stick him with a pin- tear off his...

My list of snggea- , t Ions w liloh ap- peared in the last Issue of The Thresher did not meet with the hearty approval of those concerned. These men and organizations have taken me to task very seriously, In fact. I have heard that several are contemplating instituting libel suits against The Thresher. All of them are biding their time, nursing their grudges against me, and awaiting the time when I shall appear along some dark path at night. What they would do in that case I do not know. However, it is my In- tention not to be so careless as to do such a thing. I must consider my high social and intellectual standing. My dignity and poise would not allow me to thrash several of the young upstarts. I do not wish to enter into a con- troversy with anyone. Therefore I will not oblige anyone by taking a midnight stroll u...

Brilliant and slashing play of the rangy Porker squad, to- gether with an excellent defense deter- mined the Rice downfall. The Rice squad opened the first con- test with pep and fought for an entire half on even terms with the Arkansas crew, the period ending 16-13 in Ar- kansas' favor. Rice took the lead at the start with a field goal Uy Morris and a free shot by Schroeder. Pickel and Steel evened the score and from then on the lead see-sawed from one side to the other. Hogs Add to Lead The second half found the Hogs functioning with a precision that would not be denied, and although the removal of Grant and Herting ou fouls weakened the Rice defense, the accur- ate team work and shooting of the Hog five added lit) points to their f...
