ARE SORRY EXHIBt rtONS. The Owl nine returned home defeated again this year as in the two preceding years, but confident that it can win on its home grounds, and it is determined to do so. So far the Owls are defeated though not dismayed. In the first' game played it seemed as tf the Owis had hit a winning stride, but they biew up in the unlucky seventh and donated the game to Texas. Once started, they fell off in their field- ing and hitting each day unti! they reached the iowest ebb in the second A. & M. game. In this game the Owis of- fered about the sorrowest exhibition of baseball possible. The fact that the Owis have iost their first four games does not mean that we are to be taii-enders in the T. I. A. A. iist. The Rice nine ptays fourteen more games and aii of them at home. The Ow...

Owis Show tmprovement in Team Work, But Cost)y Error* Cause Loss of the Second Game. When the Owls defeated Houston High School on March 31 they won their first game of the season, but thts was by no means their opening game. Once started on the right road, the Ow!s thought they were certain of winning a few games, and in the first game with Howard Payne it seemed as if they had realiy hit a winning stride. But the second game with Howard Payne toid a different taie. The Owis found themselves in the same oid hard-tuck rut, with several costly errors, and the little end of the score to their credit. The first Game With Howard Payne. The victory of the Owls over Howard Payne marked their initial intercollegi- ate victory. The Owls won only by a 2-to-l decision, which gives a correct idea of the nature of the game. The features ...

(jamt-s Ate Kpiendid Exhibition)*—Owis Make But One Error in Two Games. The Owls broke even with A. and M. !n a double-header played at Rice Held Saturday afternoon, the Aggies taking the first game 5 to 4, and the Owls the second game 6 to 0. The Owls' victory put a temporary crimp in the Aggies hope for the State championship, as it necessitates their winning both games against Texas at Austin in the near fu- ture. Rice seems to be A. and M.'s hoo- doo. But for Rice A. and M. would be State champions in football, and prob- ably in basket ball. And.if the Aggies lose the present baseball title it is prob- able that the Owls' victory will be re- sponsible for the loss. The two games Saturday were beau- tiful exhibitions of baseball front the Owls' side of it, but A. and M. played loosely and raggedly in both games. The fieldin...

THE THRESHER, APRIL 28, 1916 OWL MTEBAHY SMHETY A regular session of the Owl Liter- ary Society was held on Friday evening, March 15. The first number on the program was a humorous address by B. C. Harris, and after this a clever dia- logue, entitled "The Professor Puzzled," was rendered by Cain and Parkinson. This was the first time that costumes and a limited amount of stage scenery had ever been used at an Owl meeting, and the affair proved most entertaining to all. The chairman of the special commit- tee appointed to investigate the question offered for inter-society debate by the Riceonians reported that he believed the negative side had more points in Its favor. The corresponding secretary was then empowered to instruct the Rice- onian Society that the club had accepted their chalienge and that it desired to de- fend the negative side. The question that wiil be contested reads: "Resolved, That ail appropriations for deepening rivers, dredging channels and improving harbors, to...
