THE THREWgR—HOUSTON, TEXAS THREE USES TWO MORE TO TEXAS BY 1-RUN MARGIN Lonfhorn Rallies in Ninth Games The Rice baseball nine dropped a pair of games by one run margins to the Texas Longhorns last Friday and Saturday to close the Conference race. The scores were 10-9 and 3-2, and the losses ran Rice's string of one-run defeats by the Texans to four straight. Both games were lost in the last inning and both times Texas scored the two runs necessary to tie and win. Rice was leading in the Friday af- fair by four runs until the eighth when Texas got right and proceeded to score three times. Not content to trail by the one-run margin, the Long- horns came to bat in the ninth, and pushed over two more markers across the platter while Rloe was so unfortunate aa to be blanked. The second game was by tor the bet- ter of the two. Dlddly Abies pitched a nice game, scattering the hlta well, and loat when Roy Barnes was not quite able to make a clean catch of Haaael's burning grounder near sec...

STUDENT WEEKLY PUBLICATION RICE INSTITUTE VOL. 14 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28^$ NO. 1 Dr.LovettAway Pep Parade and Rally As Rice Students Start 17th Year Unable to Give Matriculation Address Due to Illness At Baltimore Due to the illness of Dr. Edgar Odell Lovett the seventeenth annual matriculation address, due Wednesday morning, September 20, has been post- poned indefinitely. In announcing the postponement of this address Dean R. G. Caldwell told a Thresher reporter that Dr. Lovett is ill in a Baltimore hospital and will not be able to resume his duties at Rice for some weeks to come. Dr. Lovett is not in a serious condi- tion, however, Dr. Caldwell stated. Registration and the first week of classes have gone on about as usual despite the absence of the Rice presi- dent. Registrations were restricted again to about 1300, the slowness of registration having held the number enrolled somewhat below that figure till the middle of this week. As was the policy of the Institute last year the n...

MICE TH 1SHBK Rttnaniers Look Good! Branson, Yarbrough, Arnold And Starlit Are Veterans Easily the best looking squad in the conference at the present time, Captain Brunson's Cross Country trotters are working out daily in prep> aration for the dual meet with S. M. U. on October 20 which will probably be held in Dallas together with the football game. Although feeling seriously the ab- sence of Chitwood, and Greer, there is every reason to hope that the team will be equally as strong as that of last year. Three veterans, Brunson, Yarbrough and Arnold are back, and it will be a difficult task to pick the best man from a group that con- tains Jacoby and Willis, two of last year's freshmen stars who have been running the four miles in great form, and Sturgis, who was only stopped last season by an injured ankle. Reports from other teams in the conference indicate that no great strength has been uncovered, and it will take a strong crew to beat out Rice, for conference honors, the de...

Waldo Mc- Neir and Griffith Lawhon have been designated as associate editors. Both are Seniors. Elbert Turner, a Fresh- man, has been named sports editor. Turner comes well-equipped for his duties, having been a member of the Post-Dispatch staff for some time. Cherry Schwarta, a Senior, is so- ciety editor for 1928-29, while Evelyn Epley, also of the class of '29 succeeds to the position of features editor. About thirty students were present at the Tuesday gathering. Brief talks were made by the editor and manag- ing editor in order to familiarize the new writers with their duties on the staff. They were told that Thresher work was the nearest aproach to a school of journalism that could be found at Rice Institute. Although nearly fifty people have joined the Thresher staff at this date, others may still tak epart in this work if they will come to the Th...

gjcj^TBm^gjy^ Ji Usually one does not expect to find much of Interest In the Rice Institute Book of Announcements Issued at the beginning of every fall term. A per- son caught in the act of reading the catalogue from cover to cover might be placed under the same Indictment as the fellow who fluds his light read- ing in the dictionary. Recently while waiting an hour or so to see Registrar Samuel Q. McCann for five minutes we amused ourselves with this little volume and made a discovery. The authorities are find- ing It harder year upon year to con- vince the Freshman mind that mathe- matics 100 is both essential and prac- tical. Witness the announcement, of that subject In the paper grayback this fall. * * * Back when we were Freshmen in the unpleasant days of September, 1925, we were informed tersely by the catalogue that we had to submit to elementary analysis, the elementary functions, their differentiations, inte- gration, etc. Barely nine lines were consumed in telling us that "...

RICE CRUSffiS SAM HOUSTON TEAM 24-6 In First Grid Game Owls Run Up 24 First Downs Against Bearkats A driving running attack, irresist- ible in its fury and execution, proved the chief thrill and deciding factor in the 24 to 8 victory of the '28 Bice eleven over the Sam Houston Bearkats here last Saturday. Although the margin of victory was but three touchdowns, Bice displayed a rare brand of teamwork in rolling up an imposing total of 24 first downs, against Sam Houston's seven. But for three heart-breaking fumbles within easy scoring distance, the Owl total might well have mounted sky-ward to the half century mark. The brilliant work of Charley Ward, the sophomore sensation of the Owl backfield, provided the big feature of the day. Ward turned in some beauti- ful end running, gaining almost at will around the wings. "Spud" Braden also came in for his share of ball carrying praise. The blocky Braden was especially effective on dashes off tackle, and ran his team with splendid judgme...

m KICK THRESHER COMMUTES NAMED BYSENKHtS Blazer Measurements Will be Taken Soon Three of the senior committees ap- pointed early this week by Joe Shimek, senior class president, are now def- initely organised, and are progressing rapidly in the accomplishment of their respective tasks. The blazer committee, including Stuart Lamkin, chairman; Larry Ha- milton, and Madelin Jacobe reports that they will be ready to take blazer measurements by the latter part of next week. The committee has been occupied during the past week in in- specting the samples and styles of blazers offered by various Houston clothiers. Bids are being taken. According to committee members there is a possibility that two dif- ferent designs will be adopted by this year's senior class; one to be worn by the men and the other by the women. J. R. Pitts is chairman of the ring committee composed of Noima Clay, Paul Breyman, Ed Gragg, John Roos and Homer Matthes, It is expected that the ling committee will be pre- par...

Thl* 1s the spirit Rice's fighting Owls will carry Saturday to Rice field as they go forth to battle Coach Bar- ry Holton's invading Trinity Tiger eleven in the tiiird and last of their jfre-iSouthwest Conference games. After the rude 81 to 0 awakening St. Edwards gave to the astonished Blue and Gray last week-end, the Rice pigskin juggernaut settled down into a week of football work the like of which the Institute has not witnessed in years. The heartless and unsaintly fashion in which the Meagher men ran rough- shod over the Owls furnished consid- erable food for thought for Rice'B warriors during the past few days. Coaches Rothgeb, Daugherity, and Schultz have seen to it that their charges got the well known earful and followed it up an intensive funda- mental drill that has left little lack- ing in thoroughness. Holton brings an eleven grounded in the same st...

1 Atkcraft Announces New Plait oi IntramuraU for Tku Year T- Franklin D. Ashcraft, director of Intramural Athletics, baa formulated a plan of organised competition for Rice intramurals which he plans to put into effect at once. This plan, according to Mr. Ashcraft, is modeled after the intramural organisations of other universities, of which he has made a careful study. It will combine their best features, and will be a marked improvement over the sys- tems used at Rice during the past years. Mr. Ashcraft plans to form an asso- ciation among the various student groups of Rice, which will be similar in its organization to the Southwest- ern Conference of which Rice is a member. It will consist of four groups, East, West and South Halls and the Town students. Each group will have a unit director or manager. These directors will be elected by pop- ular vote, from the group which they are to govern and will assist Mr. Ash- craft in all of the problems that are certain to come during the...

It is interesting to note that the freshman class, though greatest in numbers, supplied the fewest number of scholars. The senior class is not included in this roll since announce- ment of seniors graduating with dis- tinction or with honors is made at commencement time in June. Lee Harnie Johnson, Jr., a graduate of Harlingen High School, was award- ed the .Graham Baker Studentship which goes to the student of highest standing in the institute. Mrs. Frankie M.

WALKING BEST WAY OF TOWING SAYS DR. FREUND \ "r How to tour Germany with greatest profit and minimum expense was di- vulged by Dr. Freund at an informal gathering in the German office sev- eral days ago. "Do it in the German fashion, as the German students spend their vacation," said Dr. Freund, "in other words, walk." At first mention, a walking tour of a country sounds strange to American ears, but Dr. Freund hastens to point out its many advantages over the us- ual way, and adds that this is the style among German University stu- dents. Other than the wholesome ex- ercise which walking affords, and the leisurely manner of viewing the na- tural beauty of the country which may not be had in travel on the train, it also provides a way of seeing unfre- quented spots where the true nature of the people may be observed by sharing life with them. Of course the byways lead to where English is rarely spoken, and one is forced to learn the language, which is another advantage. And best of ...
