VOLUME VIII RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, MAY 4. 1923 NUMBER 30 POLITICAL POT SIMMERS LITTLE OVER ^LECTION Private Electioneering Going on For Few Candidates FOUR IN RACE FOR PRESIDENT Just a rippte here and there dis- turbs the quiet of the Rice political pot which at the same time !ast year was in a furious boit. Some of the important offices have but one nom- inee, others only two. Private electioneering of a few can- didates seems to be featuring the elec- tion this year. Ben Mitchell, who failed to get the staff nomination for editor-in-chief of the Thresher (the nomination going to E. O. Arnold) is said to be campaigning considerably. Arnold has had some experience on daily newspapers and on school pub- lications. Mitchell's journalistic work while of good quality, is limited to school papers. Another race which is expected to prove interesting is the one for cheer leader. Jack Glenn, Thresher car- toonist, and W. R. Feathers are out to contest Q)ale Shepherd's candidacy for...

_ VOLUME vm FINAL BILL QMTfM&TMa tTTT OF SEASON Student Actors Receive Applause From Audience The tour de force of the Spring Term production of the Dramatic Ciub at Autry House on Thursday night was a one-act thriiler by Daniel Wilbur Steete. The "Giants' Stair" is a gripping study in the psychoiogy of the fear of the supernatural applied to the soiution of a murder mystery, and each one of its thirty-odd minutes was filled with a tension that the fail- ing of the Ana! curtain did not imme- diately relax. The staging of this play exhibited showmanship of the highest order on the part of its director, Kenneth Thorpe Rowe; the stage pictures, the tempo, the handiing of the series of climaxes, were exactly right, and an atmosphere of eerie horror within and physical tempest without was created without ioss of iiiusion. Three distinct character creations were achieved by the members of the east. Fred Sheiton as an unscrupulous sheriff who attempts to fasten his own guilt on**a half...

After the game the crowd car- ried "Peg" off the Held on their shoul- ders. In addition to pitching a great name Captain Melton hit the ball for an average of .500 per cent in the two names.

Ranks This Season Three tallica scored from three error* and two hits proved sufficient for Baylor to wallop the Owls 4 to 1 at Waco Tuesday, in the final game of the season. A home run by Cov- ington completed the Bear Scoring. Rice counted once in the seventh when Hale singled and Locke followed with a double. Monday's game was rained out in the beginning of the fourth inning. Baylor was ahead 3 to 0, having gotten to Pollard's slants for six hits, includ- ing two home runs. Lyons was almost invincible, allowing but one hit in his three frames. Five men ended their Owl athletic careers Tuesday. They are Captain Melton, Pottard, Goodwin, Waters and Hughes. Waters distinguished him- setf with several briMiant stops of hot liners. Melton pitched a great game and without his teammates' bobbles would have hetd the game under control.

'"Ow come?" parried Stubbs, thus making a pun, but the keeper did not appreciate it and kept his hold. Is our civilization a faiiure? Can the surging spirit of adventure in the breast of civilized man thus break forth under the stimulus of rustic sur- roundings? So it seems, when col- lege studentB, the highest product of our eiviiization, revert thus to the type of the primitive hunter. The case of the young student who suffered ar- rest is not the oniy instance of Hon baiting, for many have stirred the temper of the nobie beast and escaped detection.

The Texas teams were the onty ones left at the semi-Hnals in singles and the Anals in doubles. The Orange and White squad then left for Austin to play the Anals among themselves. Louis Thalheimer is generally con- ceded to be a sure winner in singles and perhaps in doubles with Knox ( handier as a partner. Coleman of Rice defeated Woodson of Baylor in the first round but fel! before the deadly accuracy of "Red" Thalheimer. Coleman has defeated Thalheimer once this season and was noicialiy conceded to be the favorite of the two men in the Conference.
