THE THRESHER :: H O U S T 0 N , T E X A S With the Arehi-Arts ball and the E. B. L. S. bridge party left this week, and the P. A. L. S. country fair and two Dramatic Club performances next, social activities within Bice or- ganizations will necessarily experi- ence a lull for a couple of weeks, only to be revived on the very night of the last final by the Scullion's ball, which takes place on March 19. Fol- lowing closely on its heels comes the Junior Prom, another P. A. L. S. tea- dansante, a Saint Patrick's Frolic, sponsored by the E. B. L. S., the May Fete (or fetes), and on and on into a host of Senior affairs. Come to think of it, there's plenty going on about the cloisters if you just have time to notice it. committee chairmen: L.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXA8 Keepers Threaten Public ***#**«#***« Auction of Aged Articles 'Tis an old, old story, yet an investi- gation of it might solve a good many of the mysterious disappearances of those vanity cases, whose covers en- closed all your beauty, the key to that "blooming 'Tin Lizzie'," the specta- cles, whose horned rims contained all your wisdom, the rings and pins with which you plighted your troth, and fountain pens and pencils, whose long and faithful service tided you over many a harrowing exam. Year after year goes by. Everyone wonders where their valuables have disappeaed to, but no one thinks to in- vestigate the matter. And so, year after year the aforesaid valuables "peak and pine" in the keeping of Mrs. Stratford and Mr. Wade. Every- one seems to take for granted the statement "that once departed they will return no more." Miscelames Ah, 'tis sad to see nobility degen- erate!

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS <*-*(? jr? ,d£ \ \ -\-i/ JTt& Cife ^ =t 'V f ./j- ^*--£ OWLS DROP GAME TO STEERS; T.C.U. HOLDS CLOSE MARGIN By DOROTHY SORRELLS The game between the Rice Owls and the Texas Longhorns was a good one in spite of the fact that the final score stood 20 to 10 in favor of the visitors. The former Klan Hall court had been waxed just before the game and the encounter took on the aspect of a fancy skating match. Even though the players applied frequent gasoline baths to the bottom of their feet, slip- ping was unavoidable and resulted in many collisions. However, no one was seriously hurt. The slippery court occasioned many personal fouls. Nearly half the points were the result of fouls. Both teams scored eight points on free throws. The game was hard fought and scor- ing was frequent enough to make things interesting. For the first three-quarters of the battle the lead switched back and forth with startling rapidity. The Owls took the lead when Fitch sc...

The members of P. A. L. S. are bus- ily planning for the details of their third annual Country Fair. Remem- ber last year's—and year before's ? That jitney dance, that poultry show 'n everything. Well, tney're promising that this one will be just as good and maybe a little bit better—you never can tell. The best of the old things will be repeated and some brand new ideas are in the making. At a meeting of the club Tuesday noon, it was decided definitely not to have the Fair before Lent, nor to have it in the Commons. This will throw the date sometime after the opening of the third term. The Fair will probably be held at Autry House, according to those in charge.

*T*T TTT mL JL JL JLl# VOLUME X RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, FEBRUARY 27, 1925 NUMBER 21 IT WAS unfortunate that some short- sighted individuals took in too seri- ous a light certain things said about the co-ed editors in the Thresher of February 13. A front page article concerning the resignation of Rosalyn Zucht was written entirely through fun; and in explanation it should be said here that Miss Zucht's resigna- tion was prompted through illness and not because of any unpleasantness arising in connection with the work. • * * TOHE co-eds themselves were good- natured enough about it and smiled the matter off. But some others look- ed at it in a different light. Martha Frances Hill proved that sha was en- tirely capable of handling the staff and she secured excellent co-operation —better, we must admit, than the editors of the regular Thresher have been able to boast of. Her diligence and perseverance demand from all who know her a thorough-going re- spect. The co-eds could not ...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON,TEXAS About Literature By Tom Rice BOOK NOTES good work at smu OOUTHERN METHODIST UNI ^ VERSITY seems to be a rather lively place. It is in this school that some of the best literary work in Texas is produced. "The Southwestern Review," a quarterly magazine which set a high standard in its initial ap- pearance, and "The Buccaneer," a journal of poetry, are both controlled by S. M. U. students. In fact, if any school is responsible for Texas' lit- erary renaissance, it is the above- mentioned university. Members of The Makers, S. M. U. poetry club, have appeared in "The Buccaneer" and in anthologies of Texas poetry, ■ and the beauty of it all is that this is really poetiy that they are produc- ing, not the banal blather like that which emanates from the pen of one Katy Daffan, spinster. So, in spite : of a few quaint traditions that exist at S. M. U., we must say that the university is by way of becoming the literary center of Texas' schools, if it has not alread...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON,TEXAS GOOD PLAYS ARE PRESENTED Dramatic Club Bill Has Thrills and Laughs By T. B. StubbH The Winter Term Productions of the Rice Dramatic Club constitute the best bill in two years in point of act- ing, interest, setting, attendance and general excellence. Hymen Plenn in "The Man Born to be Hanged," gave the best bit of char- acter study seen since John Clark Tid- den's work in "On the High Road," last May. Plenn in a play written and directed with the express purpose of emphasizing the part, made a very favorable impression with his vigor- ous portrayal of "Bill," the rough un- scrupulous egoist. The acting of the supporting cast was necessarily subdued. Tom Rather Jr. and Patterson Lilian! made excell- ent Welsh rustics, neither overacting nor underacting their parts. Jacque- line Preseott as Neil the stupefied, despairing, deserted wife of Bill, hail an hysterical laugh that was remark- ably will done. Tom Hue's snoring was in the latest approved fashion. Til...

the thresher :: houston. texas OBERL TALKS OF 'The Plefades' Discussed By Romance Prof By Donald B. Flint Ronsard, Du Bellay, Marot, Daurat and Lazare de Baif were discussed as members of "the Pleiades," or school of French writers in a lecture read by Eugene J. Oberle, Sunday afternoon in the Physics Amphitheatre. A pre- liminary survey of the Renaissance, Reformation and Humanistic Move- ments prepared a background for the speaker's discourse. Ronsard as a Poet After giving the main events in the life of Ronsard, Oberle touched on the poet's chief works. He described the structure and character of the latter and the relation of Ronsard to othei members of the Pleiades. In a critical discussion of the faults of the French poet the lecturer said: "According to La Harpe, Ronsard cannot be read and even as late as the beginning of the nineteenth cen- tury the literary commentators men- tion him as the poet whom no one reads." More evident, by far, than his faults are Ronsard's admirab...
