BICE T1KISHEK M) ' num. lPin ^■4'" ? SHI IKiJU H Sport rams By Elbert Turner DALLAS BOUND All loyal Rice tans should tune up their throats and be present with vo- ciferous abandon Saturday atternoon at Dallas in Fair Park Stadium where the biff Owl eleven tackles the S. M. U. machine in its tirst Southwest Confer- ence game of the '28 Beason. What a kick it will give the Rtce gridsters to hear the clear-cut cheer of the varsity yell sweep down the field with them Saturday! A pleasing feature of Rice's play against Trinity here last Saturday was the determined manner in which the Blue and Gray wingmen turned the Tiger thrusts in or spoiled them com- pletely. Schoenfield, McCarble, Harder, and Power played the ends as they have not been played this year, and deserve worlds of praise for their lively exhi- bitions. MINUTE MEN No, it's not the spirit of '76, Knute Rochne seems to think so. Although Notre Dame sailed through to victory over the Navy last Saturday, 7 to 0, the Micks have ...

// H1IWI A DEFENSE Of Otfr Universities, With Some Modest Suggestions Everyone must realize that our uni- versities have, of late, received a good- ly amount of the public's attention; one familiar with our current periodi- cals can but know of the many vig- orous attacks on our institutions of learning and the students thereof, and of the equally vigorous defenses given. And such interest, certainly, is com- mendable; is not the destiny of the cream of our youth, our nations hop, a fit subject, for all Christian men to consider? I see this interest with Christian joy; but what I lament is tiie tone of all these criticisms, which reflects our present day hard-hearted- ness, and luck of sympathy for our fellows. And it is because of that that 1 feel impelled to write on the subject, and treat it with a tolerance—nay, with an affection — that comes of a loving understanding of the students, of their weaknesses and endearing charms alike. In such a spirit, and with a Christian humility...

Long before the contest started available seat in the mess hall taken, and when Sanguinet ap- peared to make his opening address he was greeted with a tremendous roar. Nothing daunted, he proceeded to recount the history of the P. G.

Then amid a continuous uproar, he introduced the contestants: "Shoveller" Fike, the two fork wizard from East Hall, "Empty" Cranz, the West Hall bore worm; "Iron Man" Crump, a human chasm from South Hall, and Slimes Court- n...

Boasting a membership of sixty men and as complete ail instrumentation as was ever had by a college band, the organization, after several weeks of hard practice, is all set to strut its stuff in Pony land.

Clyde Littlefield's stampeding Steers trample Arkansas, 80 to 7. Just how many touchdowns better, if any, is Texas than Baylor, Arkan- sas, and Centenary? Rice fans will have a splendid opportunity to form an opinion to-morrow afternoon when the Owls tackle the Longhorns in the local corral. ARKANSAS CYCLONES Coach Francis Schmidt of Arkansas gets a big kick out of these annual rumors that his Razorbacks will get the "air" as far as the Southwest Conference is concerned. The talk began anew this year and Schmidt smiled to himself. When Baylor invaded the Arkansas hills re- cently, 'tis said the wily Francis read his team a telegram so "hot" that a low pressure area was created and an Arkansas hurricane in the form of eleven good Razorbacks and true swept the Bears helplessly over the gridiron. The telegram w...

,CI HIE MM" f f A f* \t A HL City Golf Tournament The old order changeth! Saturday the local golfing critics and dopeaters received the jolt of their young lives when Earl Gammage, Rice Sopho- more, copped the City Championship tournament at Hermann Park. Car- ried to the semi-finals by what the critics termed an "easy draw," Earl played beautiful golf to defeat two of Houston's best in the last two rounds and thereby broke the Speer-Carleton monopoly on City Championship titles. In the finals Saturday, his characteristic bravado gone and ad- mittedly trembling like a leaf, Earl displayed a wonderful comeback to grab the title. "Slime" Reuben Albaugh uncere- moniously passed from the spotlight in the quarter-finals, despite the ef- forts of his loyal Rice following. Rube bowed to Dick Nauts of intercollegi- ate fame by the narrowest of mar- gins, and but for the breaks of the game the results might have been reversed. The class of '32 is not aware of the fact that among their number...

STUDENT WEEKLY PUBLICATION VOL 14 RICE INSTITUTE HOUSTON, TEXAS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1928 NO. 6 FootbaH Banned From Intramural Fall Competition Comprehensive S y * t e m of Athletics Planned For Year The Committee on Outdoor Sports has banned football from the program of intramural sports for the fall sea- son, it was announced Monday by F. D. Ashcraft, director of Intramural Athletics. There is likelihood, how- ever, that football will have a place on the calendar of winter sports which begin in January. Fear that injuries might ensue to the participants due to the shortness of the period that would be available for conditioning was responsible for the Committee's decision, Mr. Ash- craft stated. A minimum of fifteen days of practice is necessary before it would be possible for the intramural participants to engage in a football game with a reasonable degree of safety. The intramural schedule at A. & M. calls for football on the winter sports list and basketball on the fall pro...

RICE THRESHE R By Elbert Turner Truly, the ways of football are won- derful. and marvelous to behold. Local sport writers, the eternal op- timists of the newspaper world, wend- ed their way to Rice Field last Sat- urday a little "down" in the mouth. They had watched the Mustang fiasco in glum silence the week before, and they thought that something on the same order, or perhaps a little worse, was soon to be enacted before their pained presence. But when the Owls received that opening kick-off, carried it back down the field for three consecutive first downs behind the splendid end run- ning of Joe Stoppel, who received per- fect interference from his mates, the sporting gentry began to prick up its ears. When the Owls not only continued to turn those big Longhorn bozos over with scant ceremony, but pushed the oval nearly the length of the field for a touchdown with the fighting spirit that is the real Rice, then pan- demonium reigned in the press box. Copy flew everywhere and joy w...

9 t 8 4 BICE THRESHER A DEFENSE Of Our Unhmr«iti« With ORQEW for Their Improvement PART TWO In considering the social life of uni- versities 1 think it best to begin with a consideration of the girl students —"co-eds," Now, I have said in what I hope were no uncertain terms that I would refuse to recognize any criti- cisms by cynical rogues against our Womanhood; and I intend to keep to this announced policy; however, I will deal with the theory that the Swoet Young Things regard universities as matrimonial agencies, for I hold this truth (observation convinces me that it is such) as no dishonor to them. It is the infinite wisdom of Woman that leads these tender flowers of the academic cloisters to take such an attitude. Few wise men question that Woman's mission is one of matrimony and domestic life; indeed, we would do well to take to heart the saying of lago, that the woman who is the para- gon of all excellencies and virtues is destined to nurse fools and keep household accounts...

BICETHRBSHBB prTF SF7< JT m2J M. EJ iJlCjJLJt It's lots better, yea Bo! Stoo bad that the Owls never get the breaks. If Riee could have col- lected a break like Hughes got when Texas made their first touchdown, it would have been just too wunnerful. Captain Puss Murray certainly did percolate around last Sattiday. Gawge was here there and every where much to Texas' discomfort. His line plung- ing and pass snatching were enough to keep Pete hoarse as a hoot owl, and wild as a loco calf. A1 Schoenfield pestered Dexter Shelley to that little star's discom fort, roughing the Texas baclcfielder by fierce tackles and slashing drives. In Pete's estimation, Schoenfield had it all over Big Un Rose who is being touted as all-conference. Nobody gal loped around Al for any touchdowns, which is more than Rose can say. Little Joe Stoppel did some nice sprinting for that Rice counter, and the interference which preceded him did one beautiful job of smearing any Texas boys who happened to be in ...

Crush T. C. U.? There Unt much chance, Owl*, unless you do a mighty abrupt about face from the way you were headed last Saturday. Listen, you members of the team. The student body is keenly disappointed in that sorry game you played before them last Sat- urday. . The townspeople are absolutely disgusted. And the rest of the Conference is sneering,—sneering at the two beatings which a Conference member has taken from teams of a much lower rated association, the T. I. A. A. You, Rice Institute, the Owls, are the weak sister of the Southwest Conference they are saying. Maybe they are right. That's for you to answer. Two weeks ago Saturday you fellows went out on the gridiron to face the Texas Longhorns, reputed to be one of the moBt power- ful members of the loop this year. Whether you were "inspired," keyed to a fighting pitch by the ancient rivalry between Rice and the State University, or simply determined to play your damndest every minute of that game, I don't know. I do know, and...

"ZEE" GETS HOT ABOUT IT "Zee," the pedant, more proper^ known as William Zeeveld, B. A, M. A., etc., etc., pedagogue in English 100, was holding forth in his usual frantic fashion to the class members of the G4 section. A paragraph of Mencken's was the topic of discussion, and Mr, Zeeveld's erudite eye missed only the periods in that selection. The gaping freshmen's gapes grew even wider as he plowed back and forth across the room, filling the air with well chosen remarks. Suddenly he started for his throne, and sat down. Those unacquainted with "Zee" must be informed that his throne is the ra- diator. It has a delightful view of the campus from the rear, and a more en- trancing view of 40 freshman faces from the front. Prom this vantage point, he dispenses judgement on vari- ous and sundry unfortunate authors with all the solemnity of a rosy-cheek- ed Jove. At any rate, on this particular day- last Tuesday to be exact—he assumed his usual position—but not for long. Expressions of I...

*IC>I WITH THE ENGINEERS IS* Chrii Vogt, Engineering School Editor THE SOLUTION This is the beginning of what we hope will be a permanent so- lution to the problem of securing publicity for the engineers of Rice. In past several years at- tempts to get the engineering news in the Thresher have been made with varying degrees of success. We have been told that at some time in the distant past there were engineering reporters to the Thresher who really made a serious effort to get the news; however, within the writer's rec- ollection the reporting job has been very poorly done. Due to the fact that the engi- neers are ordinarily so busily engaged in their studies that they have little time to engage in other school activities, they are looked upon as recluses by the other people of this insti- tution. Nevertheless, the engi- neers do have an inherent de- publicity could not be secured in the Thresher, some other means had to be resorted to. When the Hairy-ears Weekly was first publi...
