The Baylor Bears from Waco were the first victims, and the game is an- cient history, llice surprised the poorly defending Bruins with a bar- rage of shots in the last few min- utes that ran up a ten point lead to leave the Bears in the lowly position of defeat. Bice journeyed to College Station to take the Aggies into camp after a furious struggle. The final score was 33 to 30. The game dragged the Owls out of the cellar and relegated the Aggies to that position. Texas University visited at the In- stitute and the poor play of the Owls or rather their lack of ability at free throws cost a victory. Bas kets by Rose in the last few minutes marked up a 36 to 34 win for the Longhorns. Little "Brute" Morgan featured with his floor work. Three times he fla...

The final scores were 20- 11 and 28-23 in favor of the Razor- backs. Using a deliberate attack and guarding the Hogs closely, Rice emerged on the long end of a 6-5 score at the first half of the initial contest. "Brute" Morgan dropped in a shot, as did one of the Arkansas players, and free throws augmented the rest of the score. Arkansas got right at the start of the second period and rolled up a nice lead bdiore Rice got settled again. The Owls were undanuted by the catastrophe and settled down to overtake the Hogs, but the final gun found them still far In the rear.

Great Britain's wars of defense, he said, have been fought In every country in the world but three; Switzerland, Greenland and England. And he added ironically that America's wars of defense have been waged against opponents who had no intention of threatening either New York or San Francisco. The speaker's remarks were espe- cially caustic when he alluded to the American veneration for traditional political dgma. "We have an Idea," he said, "that it is obviously seditious, if not actually immoral, to even sug- gest change in our antiquated tools of government." Mr. Angell ridiculed the present American elective meth- ods. He characterized the present- day ballot as a "telephone directory." on which the voter is forced to check the names of men he knows nothing about, for ollices of which he knows still less.

The fifth annual Co-Ed Issue of The Thresher^ comes out as a sample of the combined efforts of all journalis- tically-inclined co-eds of Rice. This year, not the staff but the entire fem- inine student body deserves what credit may be tendered. The girls as a whole have borne the responsibility and shared the labor involved in the novel experience of putting out a pa- per. They have proved themselves wary news sleuths, original reporters and potential literarians; but, best of all, they have expressed real loyalty to the paper in true newspaper style. Each year, it is the custom of the staff of The Co-Ed Thresher to offi- cially dedicate the issue. Last year, we. smiled on the men; this year, the honor goes to the underdogs of The Thresher, the hard-working, much-im- posed-upon staff of reporters. • * Much ...

Last Friday evening a delightful lecture recital was given by Mr. John Jost of tbe German department to the enjoyment of the number of Rice students and townspeople who at- tended. The affair was held at Autry House and even those who were not familiar with the classics greatly en- joyed hearing Mr. Jost's very pleas- ing voice and his interpretation of the German music. Mr. S. A. Nock opened the program I with a brief introductory address which included a synopsis of the ca- reers of the authors and composers whose works were to be presented. The music itself was by Schumann, Schubert, and Mendelssohn, while the poems which were to be sung to its accompaniment were by the three great German poets, Klopstock, Heine, and Goethe. Of these three poets Mr. Nock said that Klopstock wa ! the least known, Heine the most pop-1 ular, and Goethe...

"Perpetual Passion, Is to be followed March 16, by the presen- tation of "an absurd comedy," 'The Dover Rroad," by A. A. Milne. The works of Milne have delighted Houston audiences before. Recently the Theatre Guild Repertory Company presented here his play, "Mr. Pirn Passes By," which seemed to meet with even more approval than the Guild's other three highly acclaimed productions of that week. One of the best bills In the history of the Dra- matic Club consisted of Milne's play, "The Romantic Age," given at Autry House last year. With the first presentation of "The Dover Road" in Houston will be seen Milne in a slightly different mood— that is, more flippant, perhaps, but, | at the same time, exhibiting hlB char- acteristic witty dexterity In creating a sane study of marital relations in term...
