23 Cent Lunch
Good news to Rice students comes
in the form of a newly instituted 25
cent lunch, at Autry house, which in-
cludes a choice of two vegetables, a
"meat, and a roll. Salads, desserts,
coffee and sandwiches are extra.
Mrs. F. M. Walker, who has charge
of the cafeteria, asserts that it is
merely a matter of guess work as con-
cerns the quantity of food prepared.
Strangely enough, however, there is
rarely much food left over at the end
of the day.
After 8 o'clock in the morning, cof-
fee and doughnuts may be obtained,
and what some of our campus cut-ups
really lack in charm they make up in
"dunking" technique . . . "to see our-
selves . . . "Ham and eggs may be ac-
quired on special request. Regular
dinner is served from 12 o'clock
The Autry house cafeteria, super-
vised by Mrs. Walker, is conducted
under auspices of the Diocese of Texas,
of the Episcopal church. There is
scarcely and profit in the enterprise
and just enough money is taken in to
cover expenses. Mrs. Walker's view on
the depression is that the price of food
has decreased so imperceptibly that
the cafeteria has been unable to

I There are three teams in the first

I These teams are; '(1) Lou Hertenberg- |

No. 4, composed of "Pug" Daugherity

The second group of players includes
! Dick Jamerson, Bill McKay, Jim

the blind boys for their position. If
they succeed in winning, they in turn
are allowed to challenge other major
I league teams. Thus the qualification
, to enter the major league hangs on a
victory over the "blind boys" who
happen to be the fourth ranking team.
Upon completion of the football sea-

Entries Are Taken
For Second Annual
Fencing T o u r It a in e n t
The ancient sport of fencing gets its
start at Rice this week with entries
being token for the second annual
tournament in that sport. Last year
Palbo Gonzales Jr. gave the art of
sword-wielding by instructing and ar-
ranging, a tournament. Incidentally
Gonzales was the flashiest fencer at
Rice last year.
Any Rice student interested in fenc-
ing is asked to place his name on the
list provided in the Field house. Even
those who have had jm ,'previous ex-
perience are urged to try out. The
athletic department has provided
plenty of equipment and it will take
only cooperation on the part of the
boys to put the sport over.
James Thomas and L. F. E. Koehler
have already posted their entries. It
is nlso likely that Harry Vinock and
Kelley Wynne, two of last year's
fencers, will join the group this week.
The tournament will be conducted on
the ladder style, with challenging the
means of getting and making matches.
I have seen human distress; I have
seen persons suffering from hunger
and cold; and even though I stood
alone I could take no other position
than one of support for any measure
which has in it the hope of immediate
relief of distress and human suffering.
