Following the more formal opening

The fourth speaker was Joe Bedenk,
who introduced the football men
amidst loud applause.
The fifth and principal speaker on
the program was Coach Heisman.
Though he called attention to the
weight, speed, and ability of the men,
he also reminded his listeners of the
extreme greeness of the squad, most
of which is composed of Sophomores.
However, he guaranteed a fighting
team this year and a wonder team
The final speaker was Captain
"Heavy" Underwood, who expressed
the thanks of the men for the hospi-
tality accorded them.

added to the Rice Institute coaching

Hale is a graduate of the Class of
1926. His home is Mayfield, Ken-
tucky, where he played on the high
school team of that town with sev-
eral players who later gained national
prominence as ball toters.

end, by Coach Phil Arbuckle for two
seasons, and by Coach John Heisman
for another year. He was rated as
one of the best flankmen in the South-
western conference, and was promi-

ence team by critics.
He will probably coach the ends.

entire attention to my astronomy

year, for two reasons: First, because
I am teaching it; and secondly, be-

my class was UBing my former tele-

I was pleasantly surprised last
Thursday when Slime Epiglottis again
enrolled in my class. I have had him
now for three years straight. The
other two students, prominent in so-
cial circles, I will not disclose.
This summer I took my long-de-
layed trip into the Arctic. It was my
purpose to get the exact temperature
of Eskimo "hot" kisses. However, I
was foiled In my attempt when the
mercury expanded too rapidly and
broke the glass. I had better make my
observations on local co-edB, as the
field Is more promising.
For a fact, we have some very
pretty young things at Rice this year.
No doubt, they came because they
knew I was on the faculty. Properly
educated, as they will be here at Rice,
I am Bure they will go out Into this
world without fear of failure.
I Invite only the prettiest to see me
in my office. And, if they are sweet
enough to me, I might consent to let
them look through my telescope.
When I first arrived here from the
Arctic, I told Eddie I had to have
a raise in salary before my valued
services could be obtained. He point-
ed out the deplorable state of financial
affairs here, so, in order to help the
school out, I consented to a reduc-

on the prof.'s table the other day.
Oolly, but he is good looking, and

the food away. Eddie Hertzberg had
better watch his laurels. 1 am going
to take him in hand right away and
initiate him into the most profitable
method of teaching.
I ,had better close, as I have a con-
ference with Eddie in his office. I've
kept him waiting for two hours, but
that ought to get him into the right
frame of mind and make him appre-
ciate me more.
GIRLS' GLEE GWB PLANS
Early Organization This Year; Much
Interest Shown in Club
The Girls' Glee Club, which was or-
ganized the latter part of last year,
expects to start off this year with a
bang. While nothing in particular was
accomplished last year because of its
late start, great things are expected of
it ihis year.
It was organized by Miss Martha
Scott, 1926 graduate, and officers were
elected to carry on her work. The
president and director, Miss Margaret
Thompson, is very capable and will do
all she can to keep the club going.
There are quite a number who last
year professed themselves to be inter-
ested in the" club, but who could not
find time to join. It is the hope of
the present members to double the
enrollment and do some really worth-
while work this year.
Tryouts for entrance into the club will

PRINCE ALBERT Has been the campus favorite
since the days of long-haired fullbacks, high
button shoes, turtle-neck sweaters, and hand-
painted dormitory cushions. This same won-
derful tobacco is even more popular in these
days of plus-fours.
And no wonder. Throw back the hinged
lid of the familiar red tin and release that rare
aroma of real tobacco! Tuck a load into your
pipe and pull that fragrant P. A. smoke up the
stem! That's Prince Albert, Fellows! Nothing
like it anywhere,
When problems press and your spirits slip
over into the minus column, just get out your
jimmy-pipe and load up with this really friendly
tobacco. P. A. is so kind to your tongue and
throat and general disposition. Buy a tidy red
