THE RICE THRESHER
riiwdiffff (In Breaks
Game Ta Defeat Rice
Featuring a hard-charging line that
rushed Rice kickers and passers con-
tinually, the Texas Christian Univer-
sity Frogs maintained their unbroken
march toward another conference
championship by trimming the Rice
Owls, 20 to 0, Saturday, before 9,000
What was doped to be a close bat-
tle was turned Into a one-sided tri-
umph for an alert Frog defense. The
great play of the Frog line far over-
shadowed the heralded offense led
by Cy I-eland. The fact that the
Christians touk advantage of every
opportunity to score resulted in the
one-sidedness of the conflict.
The Owls, 011 the other hand, failed
to make a better showing because
they failed to grasp a golden oppor-
tunity to score In the first few min-
utes of play, belaud fumbled the first
punt of the game when three Owl
linesmen crashed into him, and Mc-
Carble. Rice end, recovered deep In
This play was nullified a few mo-
ments later when McCarble dropped
a perfect pass from Hammett, while
crossing the goal-line. After this
break, the feathered tribe seemed to
lose much of its pep and fight, and
The Frogs registered the first score
of the game soon after the Owl
threat. Martin blocked an Owl punt
near the Rice goal-line, with Vauglit,
the great guard of the Frogs, recover-
ing on the five-yard line. It was then
only a matter of two plunges by the
Christian fullback, Griffith, for the
counter. Spearman, a halfback who
completely stole the show from more
highly touted performers, mude a
beautiful run for the second touch-
down, after receiving a pass from
The final marker of the game came
In the fourth period when the Owls
were passing In their own territory in i
a vain attempt to score. After a Pass ■
interception, Spearman reeled off a
neat 12-yard gain and Hinton followed
with an off-tackle play for the touch-
Despite the fact that the offense of
the Owls was practically smothered,
it remained for little Ken Lee to fur-
nish the backfield punch of the Owls.
With Jamerson and Wallace covered,
Lee and Hammett showed the Frogs
a few things with long end runs and

powerful Freshman Cross Country
team defeated the harriers from John

Pearson was again the Individual
star of the day. This long, lanky Slime
