THE THRESHES it HOUSTON, TEXAS 6 <1 German Fellowship Oftred U S Students Rice students with aspirations to atu4y abroad may be interested in the following communication which was recently received at the office of the president. The article follows: The American German Student Ex- change of the Institute of Interna- , tional Education announces that a limited number of fellowships for American students in Germany during the academic year 1926-1927 will be awarded by May 1, 1926.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS ey cwv ♦ SHOTS ON THE SHOWS MAJESTIC—Not up to the stand- ard set by the bills during: the holi- days. However, the headliners, Haw- thorne and Cooke are fair. QUEEN—Womanhandled, with Richard Dix. Not a story of "Ma" Per-; guson. Made in Houston, and this j adds interest. The story is clever t but the acting seems amateurish at! times. j Next week comes Graustark with Norma Talmadge and then we have t COBRA, in which Valentino cavorts. Will review these later. CAPITOL—Jack Holt and Florence Vidor in the Enchanted Hill, Very good entertainment and the settings are great, especially the ranch on the hill. Next week—Norma Shearer in His Secretary, with Lew Cody doing the heavy emotions lightly. Norma plays the part of a homely steno—I don't see how she could be that ugly—whom Lew vows he wouldn't kiss for 1000 bucks approx. She hears of this and brings on a transformation like I have never seen before. She is dazzling, to put it mildly. ISIS—Marshall Nei...

JT'it ■ a VOLUME XI RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, JANUARY 22, 1926 NUMBER 17 Rice Topics THE decision of the Students' Coun- cil to dispense with the Freshman dance this year is a wise move and has behind it a deal of good sound judgment. * * * Previously the Slime hop has had much to do with the poor grades of some of the prominent Freshmen, be- sides a generally demoralizing effect on a lot of the others. # # ♦ At the recommendation of Coach John W. Heisman, who hates to see perfectly good athletes fall by the wayside in their studies, especially on account of such trivialities, the idea of giving the Slime ball a rest this year was taken up and acted upon. * * Last year, says Coach Heisman, some very good men were started on the downward track by the affair. It is to avoid this that there will be no celebration of tfie first year men this spring. * * * The loss to the school of promising football material far outweighs the value of the "good time enjoyed by all present." .../ &...

ISM I THE THBBSHBR a HOUSTON. TEXAS SHOTS ON THE SHOWS MAJESTIC—There are plenty of laughs on this bill. Herman Tim- bers i the whole show. He ean pull srags tetter than any comedian that has ever come to this theatre. The way he says: "Excuse me, Public," is worth the price of admission. He also does some clever dancing which goes over big. The picture is poor, as could be expected. QUEEN— Norma Talmadge, who has my respect as a great actress, sighs her way through this picture— GRAUSTARK—and adds no new lau- rels to her list. The picture reminds me of some- thing 1 have seen before and can't remember. Next, week Valentino in COBRA. Women drive him to distraction and almost tn destruction.

Skepticism about a serious matter like probation is seldom ap- preciated by those most concerned. * « So far as has been learned the t Thresher staff neglected to do the usual thing, RELAY REPLIES ARE RECEIVED; ADRIAN PAULEN WILL RUN Replies to the invitations to the Rice Relays sent out about a month ago are, according to Gaylord Johnson, coming in rather slowly due to the fact that many of the schools have not yet selected their track teams, but it is expected that a number will be received in the near future.

THUB^THREBHEB :: HOUSTON, TEXAS TOUlflCTURE Jouon, Seniors, awl fftirlif N®w Under Fire at Kqr- •ione Studio Picture taking of upper clansmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors is going forward again this week. Aft- er a brief intermission necessitated by the exams. The upper classmen, unlike the Freshmen, are not held to any hard and fast time but are assigned a period of three days or so after which the picture should be taken. However, the editor of the Campanile urges all upper classmen who wish to have their pictures in with their respective class to prompt action, as no future time will be available if they fail to keep their appointment. The editorial work is progressing nicely, according to Jack Glenn, and some of it will soon be ready for the engraver. A gang of ad-men, under the supervision of Lovett Abercrom- bie, is scouring the city in search of advertisers. Below are the names of those sched- uled to appear before the camera at the Keystone Studio this week: The followi...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS BALL IS No Dues for Sophs This Year; Entrance to Be $2 Sophomores rejoice! You will not have to nay class dues this year, so says Gordon Turrentlne. However, If you want to go to this dance you will have to uncork $2.00. Anyone with the <2.00 can get a bid. Bids will probably be sold the week preced- ing the dance. The struggle will be hotter than any ihat has ever pre- ceded It In Sophomore balls. It will be presided over by two orchestras, who, by the way, have already been signed"up insuring the (act that there will be two o£ them. Their names, however, will not be divulged. As yet no hall has been decided upon but Turnverein and Concordia are the two most seriously considered. The most money this year will not be expended on decorations but will be used on music which the advance notices say will be extra hot. There will be some good specialties between dances so says Turrentine. Neverthe- less the decorations will be worth looking at. The dance wi...

THE THBESttlB :: HOUSTON, TEXAS S SHOTS AT THE SHOWS By GEORGINA DEW NUTHINGE. (Since there are a grreat many stu- dent* who cannot take in all the shows each week, I have undertaken to go to see them myself, and to let you know, by the time they are gone, whether you missed anything or not.) QUEEN—Griffith never made his reputation on this sort of picture; it fairly drips with emotion which as usual fails to be convincing. Carol Dempster uses all the stock tricks of a "cute" girl; however, Sally of the Sawdust is no worse than most, and there are several good spots—but it's a long weary wait between. ISIS—Pola sure puts on the dog and we must admit that she gets that 'une femme du monde' air down pat. If you like Pola Negri go to see her—so far her best play. If you don't like her, save your dough and stay from "A Woman of the World." LIBERTY—All romantically inclin- ed people should go to see The New Commandment, take their lunch and spend the day—nine tenth* of the scene* were la...

THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS SEISMOGRAPH CHANGING *OIL SCOUT METHOD RICKER TELLS ABOUT WORKSUNDAY Salt Dome Exploration Done By New Method By ANDREE FALLIGANT. A rather small audience, perhaps the smallest one attending an exten- sion lecture this year, heard Norman Hurd Ricker, Ph. D. (Rice) Sunday afternoon. Dr. Rieker's subject was "Physical Problems of the Petroleum Industry." As is sometimes the case, this small assemblage received an agreeable sur- prise. The lecture was interesting, well delivered, and what was more appreciated by some members of the audience, it was brief and as free of technicalities as was possible to make a detailed statement of a technical subject. The problem of finding new oil fields by physical measurements on the surface of the ground is one of these physical problems. This is known as the seismic method of ex- ploring the regions under the surface of tin' ground in an attempt to find pew deposits of petroleum. I sed Extensively Here. This work has be...
