OWL CAGE TEAM
WIN TWO GAMES
Ctever Floor Work and the Passing
of Owl Five Too Much
Sam Houston Norma!'s scatp was
added to Rice's string when the Owls
defeated the Normalites twice tast
Friday and Saturday nights by the
scores of 22 to 13 and 27 to 20, re-
spectiveiy. The Norma! team was
one of the best that Rice has met so
far and displayed an excellent of-
fensive passing game but were unable
to shoot accurately. Likewise, their
defense, five-man defense, was hard to
penetrate and the Owls found it diffi-
cult to draw the Sam Houston guards
away from their posts. Long shots
:md passing about between themselves
until an opening presented itself en-
abled the Rice basketeers to run up
enough points to win. Coleman loop-
ed several of these long goals and the
excellent guarding of Willis, Ray, and
Campbell disconcerted their opponents
as to make their long shots go wild.
The .Normal players had exceptional
endurance and excelled in this point,
making no substitutions in the second
game despite a very fast pace.
lioth games began with each team
lusliing the ball down the floor to
lose it when about to score. The first
iia!f of the first game ended with the
suae m to tin Kief's favor but the
Xotma! team began to score in the
set-md half and tan the score up to
].'!tnH. After this seare Rice began
tiiuir scoring and had everything their
own way till the end. The score was
tlto!) at the end of the half in the
second game indicating a closer fight
thaijtm the fust night.
I'or Normal the work of Keedham
was witlmut a doubt the best. Need-
ham is captain and plays forward. He
was in every play, exceedingly clever
in floor work and exceptionally fast,
fie was high point man for the Nor-
mal team on both nights. Duffy and
Samuels at guards were important
factors in keeping the score as low
as it was for they kept their goal air
tight, to close up shots.
"Charlie" Swartz struck his stride
in the second game of the series and
led the scoring. He made several
pretty shots from near the middle of
the floor and also added to his total by
numerous free throws. Swartz is be-
coming almost a sure shot on foul
goals and may be the deciding factor
in conference games later where one
point needed to win.
fClentan came iti for his share of
honors by looping some beautiful field
goals from the center of the floor.
Utrh was evidently held down by the
dose guarding on the first night but
ramc through with four goals on the
Hay and Campbell alternated at
hack guard and were very much in
evidence when Normal approached the
Owlgoal. In Captain Willis the Owls
are extremely fortunate in having a
tleat-'headed leader. Willis is not a
spectacular player hut he is remark-
ably consistent and never seems to
get rattled. His work at floor guard
is indispensable to the team work of

The executive board of the Hous-

ton High School.
the Owls. His guarding and Keen of
A. and M. last year will long be re-
membered and much is expected of
him when Rice plays A. and M. to-
night and tomorrow night.
Federman and Baker were not up
to their previous standards in this
series. Federman has not found his
eye for the basket as yet but plays
a good defensive game. Baker was
wild and erratic and will no doubt
steady himself by the A. and M. game.

it as our reference system to describe

There is no known reference system
which can be said to be absoiuteiy at
rest and no reference system is su-
perior to any other except as regards
"Thus the universe! practice of man-
kind of acting as though the earth
were at rest gives justification in Ein-
stein's views, a justification quite un-
necessary since the practice is based
on experience. It has been known for
a long time that the motion of the
earth round the sun has no appreciable
effects on ordinary phenomena on the
earth. If the sky were aiways clouded
we should not know anything about
any such motion.
"It was thought untii recently that
very refined electrical and optical
experiments might possibly detect ef-
fects due to this rapid motion of the
earth. AH such experiments have
failed to show the slightest effect and
this is the experimental foundation
of Einstein's theory. The principle of
relativity may be stated as follows:
All systems of reference (whatever
may be in their state of motion) are
equivalent for the formation of the
genera] laws of nature. According to
this the general laws of nature de-
duced from experiments done on the
earth are in no way whatever influ-
enced, even in the slightest degree
by the motion of the earth and so
conversely the motion of the earth
cannot be deduced from the results
of experiments done on the earth.
"Einstein's theory of relativity is
based on this principle and from it he
has deduced several interesting con-
sequences for example, that light must
be slightly deflected by the graveta-
tional field of the sun. This predic-
tion has been confirmed by photo-
graphing the stars near the sun dur-
ing a total solar eclipse. The stars

displaced from their usual relative po-

theory. The theory also leads to a
very slight modification of Newton's
law of gravitation and this also is in
aggreement with the observations of
"The theory of relativity moreover
has enabled Einstein to penetrate
deeply into the mysteries of time and
space so as to revolutionize the ideas
of physicists and philosophers on
these obstruse questions but this as
pect of his work cannot be dealt with
in a single popular lecture."
WRITING CLUB TO HOLD
OPEN HOUSE TUESDAY
The monthly open house evening
meeting of the Writing Club will be
held Tuesday night, January 30, it
is announced. All alumni members
altd all students interested in the
work of the club are invited to attend.
The last regular meeting of the
club was featured by contributions
from new members on unusual themes,
including a thrilling autobiography,
the confessions of a drunkard, and
a scientific treatise on the usages of
