Not only was the quality of the performance high, but the attendance was remarkably good and generous applause testified to the audience's thorough appreciation. The play itself was a most happy choice, being one ot A. A. Milne's most clever works. The popular Eng- lish playwright, famous for originality of his plots and the subtle wit of lines, is at his best in this, as he calls it, "absurd" comedy, built around a wealthy and eccentric Englishman, who has for his hobby the disillusion- ment of runaway couples by making them spend an enforced period of pro- bation in his house. He cre...

Six-Man Squad The six-man track squad entered in the eleventh annual Illinois Relay Carnival came through in splendid fashion to place in every event en- tered. Willis, lanky runner who was count- ed as Rice's fifth best mller, displayed remarkable ability in winning the 1500 meter race. He came from behind on the laBt lap to lead Toole of Ohio by ten yards at the tape. His time of 4 minutes, 13 V4 seconds, proves him capable of a 4:24 mile. Bracey also made a splendid indi- vidual showing. He placed third in the 75 yard dash, behind Elder of Notre Dame, and Grady of Kansas. The distance separating Bracey and the winner was but a few inches, and the winner tied the existing world's indoor and outdoor records to lead him. The relay team was unused to the small indoor track with a continuous curve almost and a great number of laps. In spite of handicaps such as thes...

The Idea of a Rice Engineering Show was conceived in 1920 by a se- nior, H. A. Tillett, and under his su- pervision the first show was staged. It proved so successful with both stu- dents and public that it became a bi- ennial affair and a Rice tradition. Last year the show added the Biolo- gy Department to its list of exhibits and this year the Economics Depart- ment will be included. The purpose of the exhibit is to ad- vertise Rice and give the public an idea of the nature of the wor...

He clings hopelessly to his theory that street clothes and shell rimmed glasses make a hit with American spectators. He has taken as a plot with a few slight changes the heart-rencling story of Uncle Tom's Cabjn. He as a mel- uncholy, moody and care-free son of a street car magnate finds a job as a soda jerker who throws ice cream and cherries about with great accu- racy and finally loses his job climb- ing on rf taxi. This has a special sig- nificance as he is later to get a job as a taxi driver.
