THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS Page 8 t\v |i k Track "Tea For H liJrJ Tjl OWLS LOSE KM |^Haxoifi1;r. c. u. quintet The Owls are pinning their hopes for Home kind of honor or champion- ship on the track team this year. Al- though there are a few weak spots that are not filled out, the teuni as a whole in strong. There is a lack of material for low and high hurdles, and not nearly enough weight men, how- ever. Couch Hjertberg says that the pres- ent outlook is far more promising than last year's, and could have been better had he not lost Willis, lioill au. and McClough. In these three men he had all that anyone could look for—a weight man, and Willis could clear the bar at 6 feet in the high Jump, could do the low hurdles at 15Va sec- onds, and was exceptional on the broad jump. He will return to Rice next fall, however. Joe Luckie will uphold a big part of the team this year. As the best dash man in the conference, he is also the best low and high hurdler of the Hice team. He has on...

volume xii RICE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, MARCH 4, 1927 NUMBER 19 Slaughter Predicts China Future World Power; Says Elements Evolving Already mcwm prof DELIVERS second of lecture series Dr. J. W. Slaughter gave the second lecture of his aeries at South End auditorium Sunday afternoon. The substance of this lecture was that he believes China will, in time, be one of the international powers, for which end the elements to accomplish this placing of China in the foreground are gathering already. After the self-peking leaders and warriors of the present have had their day, China will wake to new import- ance. A race so old could hardly fail in this present crisis which mere- ly marks the generation of a new era from the old, he declared. This new order of things will surely rise from the old, but, just as surely, one can- not hope for this radical change to take place soon or hurriedly. In China, where custom overrules the practical and ancestors replace God, the attempt to westernize ...

>'V THE THRESHER HOUSTON, TEXAS Page a —■ ■ AliREY CALVIN OF HOUSTON ELECTED CLASS PRESIDENT In one ot the stormiest meetings ever held in the Amphitheater, Au- brey Calvin ot Houston was elected president of the freshman tlass yes- terday. Calvin is a graduate of South End High School, where he watt president of his class in his senior year. He is a town student. He is a brother to Travis Calvin, who graduated from Rice last year. The election was featured by an uproar which shook the rafters of the building, and control of voting, where vocal means were unsuccessful, was in a few cases effected by physical force. The usual dorm political machine encountered a combination of town students which was too powerful for the residents of the hulls, and the election resulted in a victory for the day students. Their choice was, how- ever, in some cases for dorm men. Mary Hallie Berry of Houston was elected vice-president of the class. Virden Thompson of Dallas was elect- ed secretary, a...

Page 4 THE THRESHER HOUSTON. TEXAS Starr Speaks About Mexico At Open Forum Dr. Frederick Starr, eminent an- thropologist and authority on Mexico, spoke before a large and attentive au- dience at a meeting of the Open Forum Tuesday night. Announcement hail been made that Dr. Starr was to lecture on ".Mexico Today," However, the speaker's per- osnalily was one which I could never reconcile with that strangely uninter- esting word "lecture." Whether it was the merry twinkle in his eyes, or the way his portly mid-section strained ihe elastic qualities of an old fash- ioned pair of suspenders 1 know not, hut there was something reminiscent of old St. .Nicholas iu the little grey haired anthropologist. Nor did fir. Starr confine his talk to "Mexico Today." but rather traced the history of the Southern republic from the regime of Porfirio Diaz to the present disturbed stale under the control of I'lutarco Klias Calles. I did not know that history could he made, as interesting as the good na...

SLAUGHTER SAYS CHINA ON VERGE NEW ERA Is China benefitting, or is she being irreparably damaged in the process of westernization now being effected in China by the great modern powers? Dr. John Willis Slaughter asked this question in his third lecture on China at San Jacinto high school last Sunday afternoon. Stating a number of such ques- tions, Dr. Slaughter attempted to answer them with the opin- ions he has gained through an exhaustive study of the history of China, and through seeing modern China first-hand in his six-months tour last year. Dr. Slaughter reminded his audience that the opinions given were only his personal views, and could be taken as the audience would. China at present its not different from England and the European coun- tries at the dawn of the industrial revolution. The Chinese are on the verge of changing entirely from vil- lage and cottage industry by hand to the exclusive use of...
