THE THRESHER HOUSTON , TEXAS McKILLOP TALKS ON LANDOR Professor Discusses 19th Century- Writer By Donald B. Flint . .A survey of the literary work of Walter Savage Landor was given by Alan Dugald McKillop,( Ph. D. (Har- vard), Assistant Professor of Eng- lish, in a lecture read in the Physics amphitheatre, Sunday afternoon. This was the tenth of the anniversary lec- ture series. Dr. McKillop began his discussion by relating the chief events in the life of Landor. The latter he said learned his politics from the great Dr. Parr, the Whig rival of Dr. John- son.

THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS "V Gripe! Gripe! Gripe! RICE IS FACING A CRISIS. THE FUTURE OF THE INSTITUTE IS IN- VOLVED. HERE WE PRESENT BOTH SIDES OF THE MOST VITAL ISSUES OF THE DAY: SHOULD THERE BE AN ATHLETES DORM? Athlete: Sure the athlete deserves some special consideration in the form of a Varsity Hall. Why, he gets out there on the athletic field and practices for hour after hour; and what does he get in return? Why, that's the reason so many of them are low in their courses—no afternoons to study and tired every night. Besides, they all have to be to-' gether anyway in order to study, and so why not let them have the hall they want? If they are not so located, there will be no end of discontent, and you know it. Then, you can look at it an- other way. A football man, 01 whatever he may be, deserves it as much as any one else to begin with, and as long as the whole idea is directed with Rice's ath- letic future in view, why not co- operate with the authorities and try to help...

THE THRESHES" TIDDEN TELLS OF TURNER Famous Artist Subject of Extension Lecture James Mai lord William Turner 1775-1846, English landscape and sea painter, was the subject of a lecture by John Clark Tidden, instructor in architectural drawing and painting at the Bice Institute, in the Physics Am- phitheratre Sunday afternoon. Turner was born in 1775 in a man street in London, the son of a barber, At the age of twelve the boy started drawing things clever enough to hang in his father's shop. At seventeen he had attained sufficient fpme to exhib- it in the Royal Academy. While he studied under Sir Joshua Reynolds and several other current "masters", his ptogiess was largely due to ihmself, Did it French Turner's burning ambition, Mr. Tid- den said, was to excel his rivals and at the same time to amass a fortune. Imitating a Frenchman, Claude Lor- raine, now almost unknown, he paint- ed in "the grand manner." This florid style of every picture telling a story no matter how unnatural na...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON.TEXAS Cast For' 'Shakespeare's Dark Lady" Carefully Chosen; Plenn to Star _ 25 — " By Marmaduke Wigglesworth With the Rice Dramatic Club's temporary abandonment of the one-act play and its decision to attempt a production on a more elaborate scale, interest in Houston amateur dramatics has been given a sudden boost, and the eyes of local theatre-goers are turn- ing with speculation upon "Shakespeare's Dark Lady," a drama in five episodes that is to be given in May by the Institute actors club. The cast for the production has been carfeully chosen by the casting directors and no little time was required in selecting a suitably balanced group. It will be the aim of the Rice Thespians to portray as accurately as possible five of the greatest episodes in the life of Shakespeare. This requires no little skill and hard work. It will mean that nineteen men and women of the Institute must • tudy the life and customs of the limo when the great playwright lived. I'lenn as...

* VOLUME X RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, APRIL 17, 1925 NUMBER 27 I OWL CITY j Last year and at the beginning of this year the Thresher sought far and wide in vain efforts to obtain a new nomenclature for this column. Many suggestions were made, but none were as valuable or fitted to the purpose as the old one of Rice Topics. After sufficient time had elapsed, the idea was forgotten. * * * The Junior Thresher herewith for- merly presents the accompanying title and hopes that it will find favor with the student body and the regular staff. • • • The usual foghorns will endeavor to point out that it is a bit of encroach- ment upon some of our equally great contemporary journalists, but even they will have to agree that the title fits the bill. In the issue of the Thresher that this class had the pleasure of publish- ing last year, was a new feature in the form of a page devoted to the do- ings of the Co-Eds exclusively. ♦ * ♦ But the regular staff failed to see the advantages of such...

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS Coach Heisman Lays Law Down to Athletes; Rules New Dormitory By Coach Heisman After much patient working out of details and fine co-operation from everybody, we have succeeded in making a good start toward the realization of my plan for a real Training House for Rice Ath- letes. About thirty of the more promising dormitory athletes are now quartered together* in East (Athletes') Hall; the Senior Proctors have taken energetic hold of their duties in connection therewith; the fellows are coming through nicely with their promise to do their best to make a success of the plan, and the whole plan seems to be working out well. I am greatly pleased. Now remains that we make it clearer to the non-athletic stu- dents what is expected of them in this regard. Firstly, they should understand, as well as the athletes themselves, that there must be no unnecessary noises in or about this building after 8:30 p. m. on the first five nights of each week. There should be...

But, contrary to popular belief, the heavy studies of the students are not running them bugs, mentally speak- ing, but the queer acting individuals are members of the closs of Biology .'160, and they were merely trying to capture invertebrates for their collec- tion of 50, which was due April 10.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS BAYLOR AND CENTRAL WIN MEETS Centrat Cops Hi School Title; Bears Beat Owls The Baylor Bears won their dual track meet with the Owls at Rice field Saturday afternoon by a score of 67 to 50. The downfall of the Rice team came through the extreme weakness in the weight and hurdles events, not a man placing in any of these, except Morgan who placed second in the jave- lin. First Places Luckie of Rice continued his fast work in the 100-yd. and 220-yd. dash- es, taking both. Smiley made a good showing in the broad jump while he and Goodrich tied for first and second in the high jump—Goodrich winning the toss. Baylor failed to place a man in the 2-mile run in which Cottingham and Hannon were the Rice represent- atives. Cottingham showed an excep- tional sprint at the finish clue to an outside influence brought to bear up- on him. As a climax Rice won the mile relay by a very scant margin in a very exciting race. \s special attractions, two exhibi- tion matche...
