iM INVITATION TO STAGE HAY FOR TEACHERS* EVIMNCE OF DRAMATIC club's Statewide MiiliMi The performance of "Aren't We All?" before the State Teachers' Con- vention Friday night will mark the moat outstanding recognition that the Rice Dramatic Club has yet received. The invitation of MIbb Jessie MUl- sap to present this play 1b an Indica- tion that the reputation for well act- ed and carefully directed productions which the club has held for the past several years in Houston has become statewide. In contrast to many temporary or- ganizations which have appeared from time to time on the campus, the Dramatic Club has been an expres- sion of an abiding student interest, and has in consequence had a steady and organic growth. Prior to 1921, this Interest was present but It found outlet in the Green Mask Players and other channels outside of the school. With the organization of the Dramat- ic Club in November of that year. It found, however, a definite focus and became dedicated to a defini...

A. Nock, instructor in English and Assistant Critic of the Writing Club, said in dis- cussing his impressions of Rice with a Thresher reporter. This is the first place where Mr. Nock has taught that this system has been in vogue. However there are several things about Rice that he does not like. These students here, lie finds, are not interested in literature PER SE and —the co-eds will Insist upon spoiling their beauty by chewing gum. Mr. Nock has had a most colorful and interesting though brief, career. He received his B. A. from a very small Quaker Men's college ill East- ern Pennsylvania. Haverford. While there he was interested in journalism and was editor of the college liter- ary magazine, which admits was rather good. ^ Shortly after his graduation, M...

BY TED STRONG Far back in those ancient days when Rice was an Infant, when the student body numbered little over 400, when the Chemistry Building and West Hall existed only on blueprints, when government for and by the stu- dents was an improbability frowned on by the faculty heads, in fact back in those far days of 1SIK. there ap- peared on the campus one day in January the first copy of the Rice Thresher. It was rather a modest looking sheet, and one cannot help feeling that its advent on the college promises was made with some timi- dity and hesitation, like Hie coming forth of a shy debutante. It was of four pages. There wenj no large and flaring headlines, there were no frcnt page decorations, there was about the whole paper an atmosphere of diffident expectancy, as- though it. bashfully awaited s...

By WENDELL HAMRICK "Kmergeney Cases" was the subject of a lecture delivered by Dr. J. W.

DECEMBER 2,1927 NO. 10 Rice Topics fHE DECLARATION of a prominent member of the football team to the effect that "we were playing for the student body Thanksgiving Day, In order that the support the students have given us throughout the season might not go unrewarded" Is not only a declaration of the spirit of the team Itself, but Is also Indicative of the value of heartfelt backing by the stu- dent body. 0 o o Certainly the team displayed a gal- lant and determined brand of fight that carried them ruthlessly on to a hard-earned victory. The Thresher joins in the praise of the team for ending what seemed for a time to be a disastrous season In such a suc- cessful manner. Sheer grit and fight against not only eleven opposing players but also the looming bogey of so many other games lost was re- sponsible for the win over the Baylor Bears. <J<HE READINESS with which the Alumni Association adopted their endowment plan for the erecti...

It was the first conference win in over two years, and was doubly welcome to the Bice crowd which gathered to see it. Spud Braden and Puss Murray were the big guns in the Rice win. Spud oircled the ends for anywhere from nine to 80 yards, while Puss was su- preme at the tackles. His best plunge was 81, yards off left tackle. Koenlg turned in the longest gain when he returned the Baylor kick-off 60 yards down the west sideline, and Spud Braden reeled off 26 yards on the next play for a touchdown. Both Baylor scores came from breaks. The first touchdown resulted when Hailey took Bradens basket pass before Power could reach it. The break came after Rice's first score. With the ball on Rice's 15- yard line, Baylor made good a pass on the last down whi...

Nathan, former member of one of the first elubs fostering de- bates at Rice, and now a practicing Houston attorney. Mr. Nathan tells in vivid details of how the early wanglers solved their troublesome problems and how the men students of Rice responded whole-heartedly and spontaneously to the call tor debaters and declam- ers. His interview in part states: The Clubs were formed in the early spring months of 1914 as a result of a desire on the part of men students of Rice to develop themselves in pub- lic speaking and further their gener- al literary work. The response was made equally by the town men as well as by those from the halls, the percentage of attendance being usu- ally equally divided. This entailed some sacrifice on the part of the town men, for It...

7 FOUR Huntln' season Is here and all the Nlmrods are after the frame The us- ual Influx of huntln' stories Is also at hand. Here're a few too good to keep: Pete Spencer was the victim of the first pot shot. Pete answered all queries as to his limp last week on the grounds that he'd fought a wild- cat. Not so, Bolivia! Seems as though Pete was mean- dering around the San Jacinto River country in search of the elusive quack-quacks when night fell with a crash. Our sheik could no longer see to pursue his game, so he betook himself to the shelter of n nice live oak tree, from which the moss hung In Kreat profusion. Now, Potf was tired and the moss looked rather Inviting, so Pete shins the tree and perches on a limb to col- lect enough moss for a mattress. On the second Erasp of the grey trailers, Pete also seized a screech owl. Bear in mind, dear reader, that it was darker than all get out by this time. HRd that the owl, as owls are apt to do, objected to being seized, llf dug his talo...

* THE THRESHER-«44QtftTOW. TtXAt FIVE TOWNPLAYNEXT Two Victorious Grid Teams To Decide t% mTinnAip After a series of three games be- tween the three halls and the town students, it remains for East Hall and Town to decide the champion- ship in intramural football Saturday afternoon. Two games were played last Sat- urday, when South Hall and Town battled to a scoreless tie and West Hall went down to defeat before Bast Hall. The first game saw a fighting South Hall crew holding the ball in Town territory throughout the first period, but a weakening in the second half allowed the ball to be carried far into the dormitory territory by the Town boys. In the second game, a star West Hall backfleld entered the game too late to stop the onslaught of the East Hall eleven. The game was rougher and faster than that preceding it, and both teams displayed considerable ability. Two long passes for West Hall that might easily have been com- pleted for touchdowns marked the principal threats of tha...
