Nearly I wo-thirds of the iad U composed of players with three more years of eligibility, there arc only eight seniors on the roster, and the over-nil squad age nvcrnge LS 19,6 years. Obviously, lack ot experience will be a major handicap for the Owls, taut Rice .<jup]x>rter.s are quick to point, out that 17 lettcrmen are on hand. And that the blj crop of sophomores Is perhnps the finest to come along at Rice in many years, The Owls figure to be greatly improved in two departments that were sore handicaps last fall—general manpower and overall team speed. Fifth Last Year Last year, (he ,Owls plummeted from their first-" place finish of 1949 to tie for fifth. That was only the fourth time in 20 years that Rice had finished below fourth. Last season, more than 300.000 spectators saw Rice's six home games In the new 70.000-seat stadium.
