THB THRESHER :: HOUSTON. TEXAS BOOK REVEWS By Andree Falligant. Let us imagine that Hugh Walpole, on a certain wintry evening, is sitting in front of his study—fire with his pipe in his mouth (I hope that he smokes) and his much-loved and mueh- thumbel volume of Browning on his lap. He has just been reading these lines of Browning's "The Plight of the Duchess." You're my friend; I was the man the Duke spoke to: I helped the Duchess to east off his yoke too: So here's the tale from beginning to end. My friend! The Duchess—I stopped as if struck by palsy. ghe was so different, happy and beautiful 1 felt at once that, all was best. And that 1 had nothing to do, for the rest .

' THE THRESHER :: HQU8TQN TEXAS BOOK REVffiWS By Andrea Falltgant. It seems to be the style nowadays for adtbors to name their books as Htrtklngly and as oddly as possible, and to obtain tbe titles from quota- tions which they have unearthed from goodness knows where. It seems to be effective, nevertheless, and it does catch the eye of the rending public. Christopher Morley's latest book has its title explained by the quotation which appears on the title page. Among the notable dictes of antique Rome was tbe fancy that when men heard thunder on the left the gods had somewhat of special advertisement to impart. Then did the prudent pause and lay down their affaire to studye what omen Jove intended. Sir Eustace Peaclitree. The Dangers of This Mortull Life. On the following page appear three other quotations from Goldsmith, Vol- taire und James Stephens, respective- ly. They are quite interesting and show that some authors read and some- times approve of the work ot other writers. The ...

THB THtgSHEB :: HOUSTON, TEXAS C SHOTS ON THE SHOWS MAJESTIC—Ten times better than last week's show. Nevertheless this hill contains some bright spots which hide those that are not bo bright. Oisen and Johnson are probably funnier than Jack Glenn and Calvin Coolldge are at times. Buck Jones in LAZYBONES on the screen. This is a picture which only William Fox could produce—so poorly. However, if you tire of the show you can go on the mezzanine and do the Charleston—or try. CAPITOL—Not so long ago, Dick Barthelmess tried to glorify the cadet in CLASSMATES. I thought in SHORE LEAVE that he was to do the same for the sailor, however, this is the story of a gob and a girl-—Dick and Dorothy Maekatll. The picture is well directed and furnishes good enter- tainment. Next week, Tom Meiglian and Lois Wilson, both popular players, are seen in a play of Erin called 11USH LUCK.

HII TKACK TEAM K DD AODC/T 0 rRwlSll Many Goed Athletes An Un- covered ■ Infra-Mural By PETE HILL. The prospects tor a good track team this year are looking very favorable at the present, and unless there are a number of "bustees" the squad is going to give a good account of itself both on the cinders and the field. Led by Captain Stancliff, who holds the conference record in the discus throw , the team has been working out since September, each member getting personal direction from Coach Hjertberg, who has started a complete rejuvenation of supervision. The Intra-mural meet, which was held under his supervision, was a marked success in that, it uncovered a number of men, some of whom are likely to make a name for themselves ere the curtain is drawn down at the end of this season. Smiley will surely make good and is due to repeat his fine work of last year in both the high and broad jump. He placed first last year in the conference meet. A new find is Hal Loftin, who is fast coming...

Rice will meet Its first college team this Friday and Saturday night when they meet the strong Sam Houston quintet of Huntsvllle at the City Audi- torium. The Normal this year has one of the strongest teams in its his- tory, being made up of such men as Black and Locke jr, all T. I. A. A. se- lections, and Rumfield, who amassed a total of about 242 points last year. This makes practically an all vet- eran team, which has been working out since early September. Their power has already been demonstrated since they have split even in a two- games series with the Baylor Bears. The Bears, by the way, were lucky to cop the first game by the small margin of a 20 to 18 score, the second game going to the Bear Cats, 25 to 21. Rice has the brightest hopes this year for a good basket ball team per- haps than ever before, it being blessed with a goodly ...

btm BIOLOGY STUDENTS THRILLED AGAIN Hear Third Fairy Tale This Year; Beats Grub Hound And Bathtub Stories Biology 100 students were given the supreme thrill of the year so far when Kdgar Altenberg showed them, with the aid of a simple diagram on the hoard, how they would he able to hear lightning and see thunder. The mira- cle is performed by just twisting a few nerve connections. Not even when they were told that they could swallow their food whole and go without bathing and still re- main healthy were the students so enthralled as they were when they realized that it could be possible for them to see the words come out of a professor's mouth and hear the sound made by a book. Many of the boys were more excited than they were when they blew smoke through their nose for the first time. One of the co-eds in the class said that she thought the diagram looked like an ostrich with its legs crossed: Imi supposed everything was done in I good failb.
