Peachy Gives- Slant on Game
Runs, He Says
by Truett Peachy
As everyone well knows by now the
Rice Institute Owls #oasted to an
unimpressive 4-0 victory over the
Sam Houston Bearcats from the
Piney Hills of East Texas.
Just want to introduce you Rice
students this column as instead of
giving you a play by play account
of the games from Saturday to Sat-
urday, which all the newspapers
have already successfully done by
the time The Thresher hits Sally-
port, we are striving to give all the
football players their just due for
a job well done, and also give the
student body a more personalized
outlook toward the athletes of the
Institute. We are striving for a seek-
ing to obtain a larger band of fra-
ternal spirit between the student
body and all the men who are par-
ticipating and representing Rice in
their respective sports.

Perhaps if you students under-
stood how much time and prepara-
tion all the boys spend before each
Saturday's game you will come to
understand them better and thus ap-
preciate each game much better.
Take for example the nice long run
John Kelley, No. 45, made in the
first half. Although Kelley displayed
brilliant form in his run back just
analyze it a bit and try to under-
stand how it was made possible. To
begin with the boys report for prac-
tice officially on the 1st of Septem-
ber and begin practicing twice a
day. If there is anything worse or
harder than working out twice a
day in Houston's humid weather, so
hot and uncomfortable until the boys
are all chewing cotton, the winter
would willingly stand corrected. Dur-
ing this period, until their first
game, blocking, tackling, running of
plays, etc. are all practiced.
Taking no credit away from Kel-
ly's run, but did you notice the fine
down-field blocking by the line ?
That just didn't happen but is a
specific play, and each player has
a specific person to block just as
you engineers didn't just learn how
to work calculus but needed and
worked on Algebra, trig., etc., to
accomplish the art of working cal-
Outstanding highlights of Satur-
day's game were very few with the
exception of Bobby Lantrip and
George Glauser. The all around util-
ity men, John Kelley, performed as
to expectations as well as Tobin Rote
at quarterback. Carswell had a lit-
tle tough luck in his passes as three
perfect passes were dropped. The
Glass to Wolcott combination was
a well executed touchdown pass.
Probably one of the most outstand-
ing tackles of the night was made
by Sherman's own Joe Newhill. It
could be heard all the way up in the
press box. It was interesting to
jvatch the stead/ play of the two
tackles, Wyman and Murphy follow-
ed by Gerald Weatherly and Watson
backing up the line. These four will
bear watching and will carry the
heavy end of Rice's line.
At the end terpiinals we find the
ever improving Jack McBride and
Froggy Williams. Last but by no
means least are the guards Speedy
Roberts, Parsons and Swartz.
Four Conference Teams
Win Intersectional Duals
By Howard Martin
While the Owls ground out a 46-0 victory over Sam Houston State,
four of the six other Conference teams also came through with wins
against non-conference foes Saturday. Arkansas and T. C. U. won their
second in a row, while S. M. U. and Baylor opened their seasons with
Arkansas had little trouble with
East Texas, running up a score of
46-7. Leon Campbell, at fullback,
outshone the brilliant Clyde Scott in
yardage. The Razorbacks get their
first test against opportunist T. C.
U. next week. The Frogs, again
taking advantage of the breaks,
beat Oklahoma A&M 21-14, on two
fumbles and a pass interception.
The S. M. U. Mustangs came
through with a sharp 33-14 win over
Pittsburgh at Pittsburgh. Gil John-
son's passing and Doak Walker's
all around excellence sparked the
Mustangs. The Baylor Bears, dis-
playing a great deal of power, shel-
lacked Tulsa, 42-19, after trailing j Tom Landry's quick-kicking and end
13-0 in the first quarter. Sims, on Ben Procter's pass-catching were
t'he ground, and Burk, in the air, Orange and White blight spots.
starred in a show for the Waco-
Texas A&M, for the second
straight week, failed to make an
appearance in the win column. The
Aggies blew a 14-0 lead and lost
to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 20-
14. Bobby Goff, for the second week,
and Jimmy Cashion paced the Ca-
Texas perhaps got a preview of
what vengeance can be, the Long-
horns losing to the powerful North
Carolina Tarheels, 34-7. Paul Camp-
bell's long passes accounted for
Texas' first quarter tally, but two
interceptions of Longhorn tosses set
up the Tarheels' last two scores.
