THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS n J. W. HEISMAN The year 192 i is the year when Kit c is making a new start in athletics. A comptctcty new coaching staff was de- cided upon and it was atso decided that this coaching staff r.llould be the best in the South and second to none in the country. At the head of the system Rice has been fortunate in securing one of the greatest football coaches in the coun- try, both from a point of leadership and of successful experience resulting from leadership. For thirty years John W. Heisman has been at least the equal of any coach in America. He is one of the few men in the coun- try who has been consistently win- ning over a long period of time. He studies and works consistently, M8th on the men and the game itself. He has probably invented more improve- ments on football equipment than any other man in the country. He is the inventor of the forward pass and the famous Heisman shift. His book on "The Principles of Football" is the most widely read and b...

Cleburne was right on their heaia and came oat just a third oi a point behind. The score between the two highest teams was Central, 88 1-3, Cleburne, 88. It was a great day, or rather two days. There were some powerfully fast runners in the gang of some 880 visitors, and they outshone a miie the college track men who were running simultaneously in the Rice-Pirate meet. J. Draper of Cleburne was high point man with three first places to his credit. He wasn't satisfied with taking first places in both dashes, so he got real frisky and sprang a foot farther than anyone ever did in a Rice Relay broad jump before, sailing thru the air for a distance of 88 feet, 3 inches. This was a record. Loekhart took third place in the meet with fifteen points, while Beau- mont was...

Early in the first week of school last fall, the old band men gathered all the Freshman musicians it could find and eleated officers at its open- ing meeting. Hans Ander, fellow in biology and candidate for the master's degree this year, was elected temporary director. Later he was made regular director.

It is especially noble of the Seniors to revere his memory, insomuch as the class dues of the survivors will of ne- cessity have to be increased. But to the point.
