RICE INSTITUTE STUDENT WEEKLY PUBLICATION VOL 14 HOUSTON, TEXAS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16. 1928 NO. 8 Owb Imy Task of Beating A.-M. at College Station Good Gaine It In Prospect When Owls and Aggies Clash A scrappy Rice Owl eleven that has just begun to hit its true stride will trundle up to Aggieland Saturday to try pigskin conclusions with Dana X. Bible's big and husky Texas Farmers. Slowly but surely the Blue and Gray has been gathering momentum in its gallant drive along the gridiron trail of the Southwest, and now, with only the Aggies tomorrow in the shadows of hallowed Kyle Field and Baylor here Thanksgiving Day to face before the curtain falls for the last time on King Football and his restless troupe, the Owl juggernaut makes no secret of the fact that it is out to pluck the Farmers for a good old fashioned trimming. Over 400 followers of the Rothgeb men are expected to make the trip for the game, which will start promptly at 2:30 p. m. The team left early this morning for the Ag...

For the ruthless Aggies from a fighting atmosphere at College Station invaded Dallas the past week-end, showed scant respect for the cocky lads of Ray Morrison's, and galloped up astride of the S. M. U. aggregation of assorted near greats, 19 to 19, in one of the most thrilling encounters of Southwest Conference history. Battered and trampled, beaten on successive Saturdays by Centenary, T. C. U., and Arkansas, the Aggies came out of the land where they told them they didn't have a chance and all but ruined tM 'hopes of the Ponies in a sensational come-back.

BICE THRESHES 3 Sport Yarns By Elbert Turner Now that the gonial Knute Rockne hat dispelled the idea that his Notre Dame elevens sine the Alma Mater song every time they see a Pullman car, we are greatly relieved. But you know, they do say that up South Bend way they keep Pullmans handy for any of the lonely Mick gridsters. You have to hand it to the aggres- sive Knute, though. The big Swede and his See-America-First tourists take them all on, north, south, east, or west, and make 'em like it. Captain Harpster and his great Carnegie eleven proved just a little too much for the Micks at South Bend last Saturday, so you may expect a long excursion for Notre Dame in the near future. Something must be done about this. It wasn't so bad when we found the Joel Hunts, the Tim Callahans, the Tildens, and other sport celebrities, grinning at us from country sign- boards and urging us with alluring flourishes to "Hav-a-Camel," "Smoke Luckies, I distribute all my success to 'em," "Take one, you...

BICE They Had a Good Time Anyway Three hundred faithful Kite football fans done up in their sartorial best, boarded the Owl special for Air trie land at 10:30 o'clock last Saturday morn- ing, and after seeing that the Owl band was safely located, the first lap of the invasion began. Strolling up and down the aisles seemed the favorite occupation, the purpose presumably being to ascertain the personnel of the voyageurs. The journey was accomplished with no .uiisluips, one bridge game, and much excitement furnished by the initiation of the slime members of the band who marched through the train minus trousers, and afterwards sold sand- wiches. At 1 ■>: If), the train pulled up at College Station, and everyone headed for the V. M. A., which serves A. and M. as Autry house does Rice.

Magnolia, you will remember, is the jjulley-jumping Ford belonging: to one A. C.

■in f r * RICS THK1SH1B RICE INSTITUTE'S 1928 FOOTBALL TEAM •• •• By ELBERT TURNER The language of sport is the lan- guage of superlatives. Nowhere does the axiom hold truer than Id foot bull.

■ 1C« THRESHER RICE BIOS WELCOME TO GRADUATES *#*¥#¥* OF THIRTEEN CLASSES; HISTORT OF INSTITUTE'S SIXTEEN TEARS IS TOLD From the cloisters of Rice have gone out now the members of 13 gradu- ating classes. The men of the first three classes Baw their firut post-grad- uate years given largely to the service of the country in time of war. Many have continued their studies and are launched on careers in the field of edu- cation; ministers, lawyers, physicians, architects, engineers,—Rice graduates are enployed in all branches of profes- sional endeavor, while a few have won more than passing note in literature and art. Today Rice welcomes them back; a Rice that in many respects is totally different from the Rice that they knew as undergraduates, materially greater and more fully expanded, but with the same high ideals of scholarship, free- dom. and democracy. She has an ever lengthening story to tell of measured and sure development. On September 23, 1912. the first class of the Institu...

RICE THRESHER f| '' ifff ' 9 I 1! : -•i I ? Barbaric Ideas of Nations Told of Tsanoff t • : Internationalism It Seen At Obstacle to Human Advancement "What we need Is to rid ourselves of barbarian Ideas," Dr. R .A. Tsanoff Informed the Bice Y, W. In a short talk on internationalism last Thursday at the Autry House. The substance of Dr. Tsanoff's talk was an answer to the question "To what extent Is inter- nationalism a condition of world cul- ture; to what extent is it an obstacle to human advancement." Back of the spirit of nationalism and patriotism there is the idea of clan- nisliness. A high type of private morality was developed in the clan, but there was no public morality, "Love thy neighbor; hate thine enemy" was the code when enemy meant any alien. So long as man lived a life circumscribed by the clan, this code was adequate. But consolidation of elans has resulted in such economic confederations as the Hrittish Kmplre. Internationalism is a fact, whether we like it or not....

Yes, hectic's the word! It all began about the end of a nice little wiennie roast in the woods a bit out of town where five boys and five girls had been roasting wiennies. One of the boys (the villian of the story whom we shall denominate X) decid- ed that he had lost his wallet, con- taining, as he said, a large sum of money and Bome valuable papers. He took the keys of the only car as the bunch began to think of turning home- ward and with much gusto swore no wallet, walk home. Now, it was nec- essary to get home and too far to walk. So after a frantic search of a half hour or more and no wallet had been found, he was persuaded to let the other 9 have the car, to remain there while the girls were being taken home and t...
