THE THRESHER, NOVEMBER 30, MM in P%?dMn CMrcAap The "eyes of Texas" will literally be upon the Thanksgiving footbati game between the University of Texas and A. and M., and the dopesters are unusually wary about spilling any advance infor- mation concerning the probable outcome of the contest. Uice is interested for Severn) reasons in the outcome of the game. The Longhorn eleven seems to be the favorite in Owl circles, because of the ciassy demonstration the State men put op against the Houstonians in the recent confiict that wrenched from Hire the high hopes of a championship eleven. Then, too. the oid enmity that exists between the Coliege Station crew and the men of the biue and gray crops up in a desire on the part of the Rice foi- lowerts to see the Aggies bite the dust. However, the contest between Arkan- sas University and Mice institute on Turkey Day has now loomed in impor- tance, since the Itazorbacks succeeded in winning over Okiahotua University by a score of 7 to 6 iast...

Officially Rice won & 1 to 0 forfeit from Howard Payne University; in fact, the score was 7 to 0 in the iast quarter when Coach Kirkpatrick of Howard Payne decided he didn't like the of- ficials and pulled his men from the Held. The game was one of the bitterest fought of the year, but some fast play- ing was marred by a great deal of fumbling. The Owl machine was going true to form, but crippled by the loss of Drummond and quarter and Nash play- ing under the handicap of an injured leg, things did not go so well as they might have. But as to that famous wrangle over a forward pass, many reasons are as- signed to Coach Kirkpatrick's action in refusing to continue the game.

Guests began to arrive eariy, and the cioisters and haiis were soon ringing with laughter and greetings. Friends met again whom the heediess ties of war had cast apart for years, and swapped yarns and reminisences of the "good oid days," when things were always just a little better than they are now. If one of the former campus heroes were there, he was acclaimed, and slapped on the back and "hand- shook" with genuine good feeling; if ab- sent, he was regretted, and inquired after.

HUGH The consolation hop, which was giv- en at the Community Home on Thanks- giving evening, was. in every sense of the word, a huge success. In spite of the fact that the night was coid and that there was a disagreeabie drizzling rain a great throng gathered at the Community House, where the evening was spent in dancing to the strains of entrancing music, rendered by Charles Dixon's Orchestra. Mrs. Blake was a charming chaperone. As the hands of the ciock neared eieven, refreshments of delicious cream and cakes were serv- ed; then, after a few more dances, end- ing with the strains of "Home, Sweet Home," the party broke up. But only part of the party was over with, for the bonfire, ceiebrating the victory over Arkansas, was yet to be staged. So ait the dancers went over to the campus, wifere the bonfire was supposed to be staged at eieven o'clock. Bager cries of "Light it," "Let's go!" etc., rang out, hut as the banquet was...
