// TH( THRC6HCR—HOUSTON, TEXAS AN INTELLECTUAL OF CHRISTIANITY Every promising young atheist baa the pride takes out of him by prac- ticed bypercynics. The young atheist, revelling in his wickedness, drops a hint to the leering graybeard that he, the young promising, does not believe in Noah'B Ark, and what is even more daring,—doubts the existence of Jesus (Jurist. With excellent and unerring scorn the more highly de- veloped unbeliever points an accus- ing finger at the aspirant, and de- clares angrily: "You have given up Christ, but, you coward an child, you are still a Christian!" The youth, if he is con- scientious, then is either filled witn anger and returns a penitent to the Mother Church, or is filled with startled awe and becomes a good, old fashioned, bitter cynic. The purpose of this little note is an unpresumptious defence of the much put upon young cynics/- from their ruthless elders. The cause is having repeatedly accused of being a good Christian. The defence is base...

SB Louis Bromfield, author of "A Good Woman." haa been "psychoanalyse*." According to the report printed In the Toledo Blade, the PuliUer Prise winner, whose books treat mainly with the delicate and Intricate sub- ject of women, really knows very lit- tle about them. At least his "psycho- analysis" says so. Mary Margrite Stalker, staff writer of the Toledo (Ohio) Blade, armed with a copy of I'VE GOT YOUR NUMBER, the "parlor psycho-analy- sis" book recently published by The Century Co., chose Bromfield for her most celebrated victim a few days ago and set out to get his number. He allowed her ten minutes in which to ask the twenty five rather personal questions prescribed by the book. She got his number. It is 2345, and ac- cording to the analysis in the book, Mr. Bromfield knows few women very well—perhaps none at all—and is dangerously susceptible to the ef- fects of moonlight. "Do you think the average woman is out for all she can get?" Mr. Bromfield was aBked. "Certainly not," he...

A defeat that was crushing by the unexpectedness rather than a top- heavy scor'e chalked itself on Rice an- nals when the Owls were beaten 14 to 12 by the Southwestern Unvlerslty. Pirates at Rice field last Saturday. The win was the second for the Pir- ates in the Conference realm as they had previously beaten Baylor on her home grounds. Rice started off with a rush and drive that would have netted at least a four touchdown margin had it been continued for the full period of play. The very ease with which Puss Mur- ray crossed the goal line after a con- centrated march for half the length of the field, caused the Owls to ac- quire a cockiness that the first Pirate touchdown failed to dispel. The point after touchdown was missed. Another Owl drive failed for lack of punch later In the quarter while the third ...

These have no.w been pro- vlded for, and It remains to be seen how many are going to take advan- tage of the opportunity offered them to take part in suoh sports. ♦ ♦ * The greatest difficulty encountered in arranging or putting through a pro- gram of intramural sports is the un- wleldiness of the group that must be handled. Unlike the small squad that reports for some definite varsity team, the group to be supervised in intra- murals comprises an entire student body scattered over three dormitories and a city of nearly three hundred thousand persons, and unless the in- dividuals in that student body lend their co-operation the task of carry- ing out such a program is extremely difficult. * * * In planning a program of general athletics, Mr. Ashcraft has borne in mind the variety of individual tastes to be suited, an...
