RICE TH HEB 3 Sport Yarns BY ELBERT TURNER "Pug" Daugherity's varsity and "Peanuts" Schultz's slimes are at it again. During the football season, the Schultz men found great delight in smearing "Pug's" backfield wonder*, and now that our old friend, the genial King Basketball, is back with us again, they turn to the cage floor with re- newed vigor. A grin from "Pug" or "Peanuts" is enough to make a successful day for freshman or varsity candidate alike. UNBEATEN The roll of the unbeaten is short and sweet this year. Among the major elevens of the country fortunate enough to go through a victorious season are Florida, Georgia Tech, Southern Cali- fornia, Tennessee, Boston College, De- troit, Emory and Henry, Villanova, Lowell Textile, Heidelberg, Utah, and Bowling Green. For at least three of these twelve teams, there is still prospect that they may hear the word "bum" if things go right. Florida and Tennessee do battle Saturday at Knoxville, and a tie is something that Southern Conf...

There has been much discussion in newspapars of late as to the possibility of Arkansas being dropped from the conference rolls. The feeling of the conference, however, as indicated by the repre- sentatives meeting at Dallas, was that so long as a member does not violate the articles of the constitution its right to membership cannot be ques- tioned. The sentiment was expressed rather strongly by conference representa- tives that the reputation or status of an institution in the conference should not be given to the newspapers by in- (Continued on Page 2.)

RICE THRESHER LES HBOUX VISIT LASALLEJOW Lea Hiboux French Club made a trip of inspection to the French Line boat, De La Salle, Saturday afternoon. The party of about fifty people, not more than half of them being members, reached the docks, only to find that no one among them had thought to get the required pass to see the boat. The gate-keeper after properly cowing all the eager sight-seers, "phoned to find if it was safe to admit a party of students on the boat. Everybody met the captain, a very polite gentilhomme, and then scatter- ed all over the boat. White one group went to the top of the ship, another went down into the engine room, boiler room, kitchens, and every room from one end of the La Salle to the other. Owing to the handicap of not being able to converse in French, none of the girls could flirt with the sailors. One kind man, however, lent a cake of soap and his apron to those of the party who wished to wash the grease from their hands. Another graciously entertaine...

BIC1THRESHER K- ► ,-s V C* WITH THE ENGINEERS Chris Vogt, Engineering School Editor High Pressure Something should be done about those milling machines in the M. E. 310 lab. One ambitious junior, George Hawley, to be specific, finds them too complicated to operate. It seems that after he had soent some 2V& hours of his laboratory period in setting up his machine to cut a spur gear, he did not have time left to cut the gear.

3 Sport Yarns Br ELMER TURNER Recently we took occasion to grind out a few lines from the old mill about the tempeatoua sport situation now raging up in Arkansas. We brought Jn me idea of "cy- clones," which clashed fearfully with "sinister telegram," and in some weird way we managed to imply the notion of grief over the scarcity of "giraffes" or otherwise up in the Ozark Hills. The boys at Fayetteville became woefully "het up" over the matter, it seems. Here's what Johnnie Erp, sports ed- itor of the Arkansas Traveler, has to say concerning the much discussed and "cussed" problem: "Texas is squawking again. This time the howling is from Rice In- stitute. The following is what one Mister Elbert Turner had to mourn about." Arkansas Cyclones Couch Francis Schmidt of Arkansas gets a big kick out of these annual rumors that his Razorbaeks will get the "air" as far as the Southwest Con- ference is concerned. The talk began anew this year and Schmidt smiled to himself. When Bay- lor invad...
