SIX Rice Classes of South First Baptist in Tie The three Baptist Churches active on the Rice campus have just finish- ed an exciting contest for increased membership and general efficiency. South Main and the First Baptist Rice Classes tied with a score of eight hun- dred and eighty five. The Second Bap- tist Rice Class followed with a grade of seven hundred and forty. The prize for the winning class was to have been any kind of party that they should choose. But since there were two winners, it was agreed that the tying classes should be honored at the party but they would share responsibility with the loser. It would be almost an impossibility for one class to entertain a party of about one hundred anil fifty at this time of year. This contest aroused more interest than any of its kind ever has in the history of Rice. The membership rose from about seventy-five to one hun- dred and thirty-five. The Sunday pro- grams have been greatly improved, and interest in the individual classe...

The Owls opened their endeavors in a game out of the city with the Saint Edwards crew at Austin on De- cember 17. Koenig and Morgan led In the scoring, with 13 and 7 points, respectively, and the final count was all in Rice's favor by a 9-point mar- gin. The official scorers marked up 81 for Rice to the Saints' The next two starts were rather disastrous to the Rice hopes for vic- tory. The Sam Houston Bearkats got revenge for the way Rice treated them in football by trouncing the Owls In the first home game at the Auditorium floor, some 26 to 14. Sam Houston led all the way, holding a 12 to 6 advantage at the end of the first period. The game marked the ending of school for the ChriV-mas holidays a...

Though the article is commendable in that it again brings to the atten- tion of the people the necessity of as- sisting the Institue wih its building program, from a student point of view it would appear that the writer has o...

The Owls, most of whom were en- tering their first conference scram- ble on a hardwood court, suffered bad- ly from uncertainty and stage-fright In the first period. Captain Grant was the only member of the crew who performed easily, and he scored tbe first five points straight. That they were becoming acclimat- ed to conference play was clearly demonstrated in tbe second period when tbe green Rice men cut an IX point Aggie lead to 4, altho Grant and Koenlg were lost to the side. The Aggies' biggest advantage came at the tip-off where Rice was clearly outclassed.

At the same time, efforts should be made to introduce and en- courage customs that will be of real assistance to students and the school. # o No time other than the immediate present could be more opportune to nip one particularly pernicious prac- tice in the j>ud and supplant it with another...

Newest song of the co-ed: "Me and my shad- ow, tumbling down the main drag." And they're falling heavily for this tumbling stuff, too. When Mr. Asheraft announced the opening of the girls' gym class the past week, he was greeted noisily by several co-eds, many old-timers and many more recruits. In fact, so many turned out for the meeting that he tried to scare some away with tales of stiff neck and squashed anatomy. But don't let him kid you, girlB. It it doesn't kill you, you'll like it—ask any girl whoa had it before. First, you'll learn how to fall (stumble or faint at will, but for goodness sake, fall gracefully). Then you'll learn how to stand on your head and that long-suppressed de- sire will be appeased; it really is amazing how many things you head is good for besides the task of keep- ing your ears separat...

Since the first term examinations are now at hand, students should not remain in ignorance of the purpose and meth- ods of the honor system in operation here at the Institute. i': # The old adage "Once a thief, always a thief" in this case is probably to be interpreted as meaning that complete knowledge of the honor system will not prevent cheating on the part of those individuals who are born cheat- ers, but certainly such knowledge on the part of other persons should assist in the apprehension and conviction of over the Owls.

K. X.- Y. M. H. A. combination by a 22*16 score, and these same I. K. X- Y. M. H. A. players were city champs in 1927. Hess, flashy Rice Frosh forward, was scoring ace for the first year men although nosed out by Rubensteln of the opponents for first place In scor- ing honors on both teams. Hess sank 6 field attempts. Don Hastings at the guard post staved off most of the Borschow- coached attempts at crip shots and took the ball from the backboard In the masterly fashion that made him an All-state selection while at Heights. He was ably assisted by McCarble, another Heights contribution, who worked admirably at the other guard post. Joe Stoppel, Schpack, and Wolf al- so made good showings with the Freshmen.
