Bine Bolts Win First;
Play at A & M Today
The Blue Bolts teed off on two
Milby and Two Rice pitchers for a
total of 21 runs and 15 hits, as coach
"Red" Bale cleaned the bench here
last Saturday afternoon in the Bolts
first scheduled game.
Doyle Beard was the big gun for
the Bolts at the plate, collecting a
single, double, triple and two walks,
while Kennedy-and Collins sparkled
defensively. Dick Leeder pitched
three innings, allowing one hit and
no runs, while striking out five. He
was followed hy Edwards, who al-
lowed one run and one hit. After the
Owllets accumulated a twelve run
lead, the regulars were replaced, and
the substitutes took over, scoring
nine more runs in the two innings
The Bolts travel to College Sta-
tion today for a game with the Ag-
gie "Fish." The two teams will re-
turn to Houston April 13 for the sec-
ond game of the series.
Netters to Open Conference Play
Friday afternoon, the Rice tennis!
Rice Varsity to Begin
Conference Play Today
A. & M. plays the Rice varsity to-
day and tomorrow in a two game
series which opens Southwest Con-
ference competition. Game time is
The starting line-up has not been
announced, hut Bishop will probably
pitch the opener today. The Aggies
heat U. of H. and Stephen F. Aus-
tin in previous starts, while the
Owls lost to the Cougars and split
with the Lumberjacks.
team will open the conference sched-
ule on the varsity courts against the
Southern Methodist netters, and this
may be the year when coach Con-
nelly's boys may take down team as
well as individual honors.
Chick Harris, one of the many
Corpus Christi athletes now starr-
ing for the Institute, looks as if he
is ready to follow in the footsteps
of Sam Match and Bobby Curtis,
who won the conference singles tit-
les in 1947 and 1948, respectively.
Sophomore Jack Turpin, former
state junior champ from Highland
Park, has been playing No. 2 and he
and Harris look like good bets to
win the doubles title at the confer-
ence meet in May.
Filling out the well balanced
squad are Chick's brother, Bobby,
and Bob Foley from Baytown.
Last Saturday, the Owls showed
unexpected power as they crushed
a good University team without the
loss of a set, dropping only 32 games
in all. Chick looked great aB he trip-
ped Jason Morton, 6-4, 6-4. Morton
has beaten several of the Southwesft
Conference's No. 1 players this year.
Turpin roared past Hugh Sween-
ey, 6-2, 6-0, and then teamed with
Chick to beat Morton and Sweeney,
Bobby Harris topped Jack Lan-
ham, 7-5, 6-2, while Foley toyed
with Steve Pace, 6-1, 6-1, and then
they teamed to whip Lanham and
Dick Lamb, 6-4, 6-2.
EBLS Hunt Treasure -
Members of the E.B.L.S. were ne-
tertained with a picnic party at the
home of Jean Gordon, 2024 Dunstan,
Sunday. Games on the lawn were
followed by a weiner roast. Later,
the girls and their dates went on a
"treasure hunt," using clues com-
piled by Mary Frances Dorrance
and Paula Meredith. After the hunt,
the couples returned to Jean's for
refreshments and group singing.
Crippled Golfers To Play Friday
The crippled Rice 'golf team will
open its conference schedule in Bry-
an Friday when they tangle with the
Texas Aggie swingers.
The positions on the team are be-
ing determined by comparative sco-
res in a series of practice games
this week. Carroll Baird, Jimmy
Powell, Phil Ezell, and Snelling will
probably make up the team if Snell-
ing's injury is not too bad.

SL's Hold County Fair -
T o raise the money for their
scholarship which is annually award-
ed to a woman student, the S.L.'s
gave a County Fair last night at the
Varsity Room. The evening's enter-
tainment included dancing—folk and
popular, booths, a bazaar sale and a
cake walk. General chairman for the
affair was Beverly Owens; Bev
Hawkins was in charge of the dart
booth, and Nancy Helen Walters,
the cake walk.
