r - v nrutr VOLUME X RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, JANUARY 23, 1925 NUMBER 1 k? Rice Topics TT IS deeply gratifying to note that *■ more Eice students are attending the University Extension Lectures this year than heretofore. A LARGE crowd of Houston resi- dents and Rice students heard Dr. Andrea Radoslav Tsanoff deliver the first of the 1925 series. It was excellent. * * * SUBJECTS of literary and scientific ^ interest will be discussed on suc- cessive Sundays by Rice professors. * * * TIHE following extract from the Houston Post-Dispatch serves to demonstrate the intei'est that is being manifested in the University Exten- sion Lectures: * * * "HTHESE lectures should mean a great deal besides the very fine instruction offered the public. On these occasions Houston people should visit Rice, see what is being done and said there, and get acquainted with probably the greatest institution in the city. ♦ * * "DEOPLE usually demand that their lecturers be brought great dis- Slhices.

TH E: THRESHER HOUSTON,TEXAS Lm i$ s* m FROM THE MESS BOX Track Work Will Start Feb. 1 According to a communication from Coach John Nicholson, track work will be started in earnest by February 1. Prior to that time it is expected that all eligible men for Freshman and Varsity squads will train as much as possible before active work is com- menced. The men will be worked every day in the week except Friday, which will be a day of rest, except in rare in- stances when a man needs a little special work. Prospects Bad Rice will more than likely have a poor team this year, but the coach hopes to build up his material to such an extent that Rice will have a con- ference winner in the years to come. Freshman material will be worked on especially. Nicholson is contemplating having handicap races before any meets are scheduled. Anyone in school can come out for the handicaps. By March 1 it is expected that sprints will take place, followed by the middle dis- tances. Distances, jumping and we...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS MASTER'S WORKS DISCUSSED W a t k i n Lectures On Michelangelo's Genius By Donald b. Flint Michelangelo's sculpture, painting unci architecture was discussed at length by William Ward Watkin, Pro- fessor of Architecture, in a lecture de- livered in the physics amphitheatre Sunday afternoon. An account of the life of the great Florentine was also Kiven by Watkin when he showed how the three branches of art were devel- oped in Michelangelo throughout the latter's exceptionally long life. It was shown by Watkin that Mich- elangelo as a historic figure stands with a single competitor of equal abil- ity, that of Leonardo da Vinci. Lack of knowledge of the latter and the relative vagueness of his works in history make the Florentine stand out as a greater figure in art than his equally worthy competitor. "in 1-175 the great Italian artist was born and in 1478 came to Settig- nano, a village of marble workers which overlooked Florence. It was hen that the youth w...

Methought I Heard a Voice Cry: "Cramp No More" pOR $14,000 we could h^ve a place on the campus in which to play our basketball games—a place where the varsity could practice properly—a place large and roomy enough to relieve the present cramped situation that is holding back the development of both gym work and basketball—a place where the stuclents could assemble as a student body and feel at home to support their team—a place which would not be a sore eye to the campus if properly located—a place which would allow the athletic associa- tions to realize financially on the games—a place which could be used until the time for the "big gym" rolls around—a place which would make gym work attractive to the student body as a whole— a much-needed and longed-for place that would serve several pur- poses and loosen the bonds that are holding back the Owls in the field of basketball; it is not an impossibility; we can have it; we need it; don't let's argue about it—LETS GET IT.

W. C. A. Now all that remains to be ac- complished is for the cast to polish away at their acting, which is being ably looked after by Mrs. Charles F. Arrowood, director of the perform- ance.

Coach Rafferty met the candidates for the track team at the field house last Monday afternoon, and since that time has been working the men hard. Rafferty is a firm believer that work does not harm an athlete, hence he is sending his men through stren- uous exercises.

Plans have baen formulated for t ack meets t<j be held every Saturday afternoon before the active season starts.

THE THRESHER HOUSTON,TEXAS 3 TRACES GROWTH OF LAW "Grotius And Law Of Nations" Is Subject By Donald B. Flint Development of international law was traced from its status during the middle ages to its application in mod- ern times, by Victor Andres Belaun- de, formerly Doctor en Letras y Jur- isprudencia (Lima) awl lecturer in Spanish and Spanish-American His- tory at Rice, Sunday afternoon in the Physics amphitheatre. This was the fifth of the annual faculty extension lecture series, and was centered about the subject, "Grotius and the Law of Nations." Growth of ,New Nationalities Beiaunde showed that the problem of the epoch of the Renaissance and the Reformation was political and dealt with the constitution of the na- tional state. Once, the new national- ities were established, he said, this problem became international. "From isolated war between the states of Western Europe since the middle ages, we have passed to wars of alliances and from these to wars of coalitions, and at th...

M. U. Mustangs wore decisively beaten 31 to 19. The contest was played at the for- mer Klan Hall. The band was on hand to lend color to the occasion, as well as a l'airly large sized crowd. As a result of the victory the Owls are iiu longer in the cellar position, both Baylor and Rice being tied for seventh place. Coach Nicholson started the team with the largest stature, and from the first results were forthcoming. Passing and guarding were certainly above par. Behind at Half At the end of the half, however, the Owls were trailing 17 to 13, but thijj was due to a little uncanny shoot- ing at the end of the half on the part i f a couple of cagers from the school up i it Dallas, The first half was hard fought:, ■ . action was fast, and ...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS VACCINATION IS ADVISED One Sophomore Has Small Pox; Students Should Use Every Precaution. Last week Dean Caldwell caused quite a commotion in History 300 where he first announced that there was a case of smallpox at Rice, and that all necessary precautions were to be taken against further infection There are some twenty or twenty-five cases at the present time in Hous- ton, and it seems that S. C. Dunnam, a Sophomore, has contracted it. Dunnam lives at 4818 Austin street. The Dean said he had talked to the City Health Officer, who advised im- mediate vaccination of all students who have not been successfully vac- cinated within the past seven years Dr. Caldwell himself will take the necessary precaution, hy stated. Of course, since Rice doesn't come under the head of the public schools, \ aceinntion is not compulsory.

THE THRESHER HOUSTON , TEXAS CLEVER WORK AND SMOOTH ACTION FEATURE *Y" PLAY By THE CRITIC Laughter, applause and a well-filled house greeted the cast of "Officer 666," the three-act farce presented last Monday night in the auditorium of the South End Junior High School under the auspices of, the Rice Y. W. C. A. If the performance lacked somewhat in polish, and was marred occasionally by a bit of levity, it certainly made up for these minor defects in smoothness of acting and intenseness of humorous Interest. The story, many times reviewed, scarcely needs repetition here. Briefly, a young society girl is about to marry a thief, believing him to be some one else. The "some one else" falls des- perately in love with her, and, after tangling things up pretty badly, fi- nally straightens them out and fixes matters up for a happy-ever-after ending. Male Roles Good Jack Glenn, always versatile, un- doubtedly starred as leading man, and so cleverly steered matters through the only hitch wh...
