September 21, at the opening meeting of the present aca- demic year, was enthusiastically re- ceived by a crowd of some 500 stu- dents that overflowed the Physics Amphitheatre. The president of Rice each year takes occasion to address the new members of the Institute, the fresh- men. This year's address, said by many critics to have been a most in- spiring one, follows: CyO A New England College Story Once upon a time the undergradu- ates of a New England college ar- ranged a public reception of their own in honour of a great American traveller of the day. In a gay pro- cession they escorted the celebrated visitor from the college inn to the college chapel where, with all the ceremony and solemnity usually at- tending the conferring of honorary degrees, D.

SIX LOVETT WELCOMES DORMITORYSTIJDES ON COLLEGE NIGHT Dean Caldwell and George Cohen Other Speakers 0! Evening. College Kite was the occasion of the welcoming of 300 men to the dormi- tories by President Edgar Odell Lovett, who, in his short address, urged Rice students to be friendly and tolerant towards each other, and to work for the good of the entire student body.

Heavy skies and slow courts during the earlier part of the week, forbade much activity, and for a time tennis followers were led to believe that of the total field of con- testants, old Jupe Pluvius would be the sole survivor. Brisk play during the past two or three days, however, has effected many eliminations, and with co-operation from the weather- man a champion may yet be named before snow falls. The scoreboard shows Rice still very much in the running. The three varsity members, Appell, Beckenbach and Barr, have been inactive, but should resume play within the next day or so. Hess, from whom much was expected, has surprised fans by dropping suddenly from the singles competi...

Altho a fine bit of line smashing by Braden was responsible for the Rice score that ended the contest, It was a double heave from Allnoch to Ap- pling that scored the touchdown whiclf passed the Bearkats at the beginning of the last period. The Bearkats kicked off. The Owls were downed at the 40 yard line, and two line smashes netted but Qve yards. Allnoch punted t...

Cigarette smoke, flasks, perfume, jazz, punch—all at the Autry House Friday afternoon, when the Big Sis- ters ertertained the Little Sisters with a The Dansant from five to se*- en-thirty. The dance, sponsored by the Y. W. C. A., was one of the most extravagant things Rice has seen since the Engineer's play. Upper- classmen Big Sisters, dressed as toughs, regulation jelly beans, sailors —anything—came early bringing de- mure Little Sisters, and for two hours Autry House saw much excitement. The grand march at six o'clock was led by Martha Stewart escorted by Madelin Jacobe. Special features were an Apache dance by Lucy Davis and Mary Ellen Prater and a gen- uine hornpipe danced by O.

Twenty-nine were broken In one night. * • The inference is evident. Though no Rice students have been caught in the act of breaking the lamps, cir- cumstances indicate that the damage is being done by students. • The globes for the lamps are ex- pensive: $1.50 each is a conservative estimate. Multiply this sum by twen- ty-nirie, and the damage for one night. is a very respectable amount. * • * Persons who wilfully wreak so much damage for no other pleasure than that derived from wanton de- struction such as this deserve the full penalty prescribed by law. ♦ # ♦ It is hard to believe that college stude...

pinJTT*-.; | ;j gW I ; THE THWgSHgR—HOUtTON, TEXAS LANDOFJtOMANCE Several Poems Read in M—Meeting. The iwwnd Instalment of the serial, "A Romance to Bud Romance," was an outstanding feature of the meeting of the Writing Club, Monday night It describes the adventures of X in the Land of Romance. Diverse opinions were expressed as to the motives un- derlying the satire of the piece. The generally aocepted one was that the satire indicated a state of mind. As the contribution was made anonymous- ly, the author could not be consulted to clear the point, even if he had been able. A sonnet was read in which there was an attempt to Include under one subject, art, literature, and music. This is often attempted by amateur writers and usually ends more or less disastrously because the field is too broad to'cover in one poem. William Sears read a romantic tale of the East, which was greatly u. con- trast to a story of American life, Dreams, turned in by Ted Strong. Among other poems read were ...

Battered out of tbe lead by a light- ning quick Pony attack, tbe Rice Owls went down in a 34 to 6 defeat before' the S. M. U. Mustangs at Owenby Stadium in Dallas, last Friday. A Rice team that wouldn't give an inch in the first half, that pushed over the first touchdown of the game and frightened the Methodists out of their habitual nonchalance, gave way before superior passing and fast back- field performers in the second stanza. The scrap that the entire squad put up in the face of overwhelming odds and rought if not downright dirty football was wonderful to witness. Time and again the fast racing S. M.

Learned Seniors and Lowly Slimes, Haughty Juniors and Flippant Sophs, they all bowed together in the tolls of initiation Tuesday night when the Iiice Pre-Med Society took Bixteen new members into the sacred fold. The tragicomedy had its setting in the Phjsics Building, where space was plentiful and equipment enough for the horrors of two full hours was abundant. From the clammy murk of that dark basement to the skulls and bones of the second floor was the awful work carried on. Those who survive to tell the tale refuse to do so, for the very grue- someness of it. Spies stationed iibout the building by the Rice Hu many Society have been unable to bring any direct charges of vivisec- tion against the pre-meds. though they do affirm that haunting wails and sobs were heard to issue from the barred and bolted windows of the torture chambers Pre Med officials state in defense of themselves that th...
