the southwest corner of Main and
Dallas after being moved by the
Houston police department because
they were creating «$ traffic hazard
at their traditional corner on Main
The Rice men seem satisfied and
are getting: rides without trouble, it
Wilis learned early today from Jimmy
Miller, president of the Student Coun-
" We are trying- to cooperate in
every way with the Police Depart-
ment," Miller said, "and as far as we
are concerned, the problem is solved

Rice boys were obstructing the heavy
traffic at; Main and I.ainar, accord-
ing to Police Chief L. Brown, The
boys were also in danger when they
stood in the street at the busy in-
tersection. Not wishing to deprive
the boys of their traditional habit of
Catching rides from town to the In-

them of no'more interference unless
a pending1 anti-hitch-hiking ordinance

The hitch-hiking practice is justifi
able, he explained, because of the
poor bus service between the down-
town area and the Institute. The only
bus going: directly to the school is the
Bollaire, which runs at half-hour in-
tervals. Other busses run more often
but it is necessary to transfer in or-
der to make connections.
"If the City Council does pass an
ordinance to prevent all hitch-hiking,
we will probably be able to make
them regret it," 'MUIer declared as
he outlined a plan of reprisal. "About
fifty men will go down to our old
corner at Main and Lamar and just
let the police department make
wholesale arrests. The City will prob-
ably wish then that it had let the
Miller emphasized the fact that as
long as the Rice men were allowed
to continue catching rides, they should
cooperate Witli the police depart-
ment by using the new corner. Some
of the men are still hitch-hiking from
Main and Lamar and are being chased
away by officers.
The Police .Department has the
right to stop any practice which it
considers as a traffic ni en ace," said
Miller. "They did not stop our hitch-
hiking entirely but merely moved us
to a less busy ilitcrsecti.on. We can
catch rides ther<> us easily as at La-
mar; therefore we should cooperate
with the officers who are really look-
ing after our own good."

Miss Froig Speaks
The next tiling of interest in this

we all eady knew to lie the. second wife
uf VViilianl, Marsh Rice, founder of
the Institute, In this connection Miss
Marion Frost, president of the

" Yes, I know that,' but can you tell
me'ianythiiig else about her?"
"Well, Fin sorry but 1 don't think
1 can. However, the E.B.'s are the
:oldest literary socicty on the cani-
pvik She got breathless after making
this plug and then repeated "I'm

The Second Mrs, Rice
Wliit was really aroused
by this time. We consulted Miss Lane
who seemed full of praises for the
second Mrs, Rice. She was brilliant
and unusuitlly comely, according to
Miss Lane, having wondrous eyes
and a handsome head of hair. She
was tall arid straight as an Indian
and had the charm and grace of a
ipieen. People loved her and she loved
people—she was always happy when
she vvas doing something for others.
Betty Gal'tner, president of the
OwenWistei' Society, got off easy in
this little Professor Quiz program.
She was in toWn all afternoon and
Could not be reached over the phone.
Well, We knew that Owen Wister was
a famous author anyway—perhaps
Betty would have known too. She
had the novel course last year,
Organisation of the Intramural
Association rapidly neared completion
this week as the deadline for the
first two events neared.
One of the more interesting de-
velopments of the week was the an-
nouncement of the disbanding of the
Town Hall club. This unit of the as
aociation, made up of independent
boys front the dorms and around town,
was last year's winner of the intra-
mural touch-football crown.
Rally Club Rule
This was a development of the
newly passed Rally Club rule requir-
ing all boys in the Rally Club to
play under the banner of that organ-
ization. The rule took several of the
Town Hall mainstays from the team
including Ben Smith arid John Tom-
fohrde and they decided to rest on
their last year's laurels.
James Anderson, Rally Club rep-
resentative to the Intramural Coun-
cil, was appointed vice-president of
the council and Dick Matiza, all-star
representative, was appointed secre-
tary. These appointments were an-
nounced by Tiny Appling, president
of the Association.
Appling urged that all organiza-
tions who have not as yet selected
their representatives to the council
do so at once so that complete plans
for the coming touch-football compe-
tition can be completed. At the next
hieetmg of the Intramural Council,
all riiles, old and new, will be thor-
oughly discussed and a skeleton out-
line of the touch football schedule
will lie worked out.
Appling to Preside
In keeping with the policy to do
everything possible to aid and in-
duce everyone to enter the intra-
mural tournaments this year, presi-
dent Tiny Appling has agreed to pre-
iside lit iin intramural table from ten
to I twelve,' every Tuesday morning
throughout the yew, taking entries
and answering questions. In this way
it is hoped that the largest number
of entries possible will be secured
for each event Results and schedules
will also be available from him at
this 'time, ' ,.
Any boy* who have not yet con-
nected themselves with any club are
Ut'ged to see Tiny at the table next
Tuesday or contact the field house.
He has expressed every desire to aid
them in placing themselves with some
organisation so that all may take
part. Freshmen especially are urged
to avail themselves of this oppor-
Attention is called to the fact that
entries for the novice table tennis
tournament and the novice tennis
singles close on Ocober ninth. This
completion is open to all students who
have not competed in these particular
events in Rice intramurals.
