The printer's opinions of us nren't fit to print! STUDENT WEEKLY PUBLICATION RICE INSTITUTE WET BLANKET: 24 more days before exams. CO-ED EDITION VOL. 14 HOUSTON, TEXAS, FRIDAY, MAY 3, 1929 SCIENCE AND RELIGION SUBJECT OF LECTURE AT CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH PHYSICIST MAINTAINS THERE IS NO CONFLICT FOR THE EDUCATED BE GOOD OR MAMMA SPANK! With spring elections approaching, the student body should exercise care and attention in the choice of students for the various campus offices. It is trite to urge interest in campus affairs on the greater part of the student body. We doubt if most of them can be roused from the lethargy that holds them. However, each student should feel personally responsible to vote in elections for members of the honor council if for no others. Sure- ly there is no more important and re- sponsible position on the campus than preserving the Honor System. Recent- ly there has been much talk as to the merits and success of the system here at Rice. One hears many charg...

2 BICE THRESHER REPORTER CRASHES PRE-MED MEETING When we got the assignment to cover a pre-med meeting, we had vis- ions of skulls and cross-bones gracing the speaker's table and other phe- nomena too horrible to mention. You see, we thought it was one of those serious minded clubs—like the literary societies. At first, we thought we were at the wrong meeting. But after a bit, IJohn Smith called the meeting to or- der and all the girls stopped talking to Harold Braun. We cuddled up to Alice Seaborn and said, "We didn't know you were covering this meet- ing." She said, "I'm not. I belong to this thing." We were surprised and showed it, whereupon sin' looked at Louise Felder and they both broke into subdued gig- gles. Immediately, Louise Brown was very shocked and hushed them to si- lence. Hut they whispered that they would tell us all nbout it after the meeting. We are very sorry, but all we could get out of the lecture was the infor- mation that, "grnnduloma is a mis- nomer." Howeve...

m • v SICE THRESHER WITH THE ENGINEERS We quote from a letter written by Milton Llljestrand to pr. Humphrey. Mr. Llljeatrand took hie degree in en- gineering at Rice Institute last June. Shortly after his graduation and while working for Cox and Blackburn at Galveston, he met with an unfortun- ate accident In which he very nearly lost his eyesight. At present, he is slowly recovering. He tells of his progress in the letter which reads In part: "I had a very Interesting personal experience on my first day there. Their head service man took me along to Hitchcock where a commercial ma- chine had been giving some trouble. We found the location of the com- pressor and condenser was such that the condensing temperature and pres- sure were too high for any decent ef- ficiency, so proceeded to move it bodily to the cool and airy space un- der the store in question. The ma- chine had to be placed some fifteen feet under the low joists of the floor and only about two feet of working space exi...

• V"f 1PW II ca ■« « « BELIEVE JT OR NOT Another rumor has been spiked. We have discovered that Rice does not cater particularly to boys, girls be- ing tolerated merely because of the founder's expressed purpose of mak- ing the Institute co-educational. Desiring to determine our status on the campus, we approached several of the faculty with the question, "What do you think of co-education?" The results wore of three types: posi- tive, negative, and no reaction. Apparently, co-education has its ad- vantages and disadvantages. It, all de- pends on one's point of view. If you are serious and studious and deter- mined to dig your way through plenty of Greek and math and such, co-edu- cation will probably be a distraction. But if you are not quite so—well— earnest, co-education is just the thing. The consensus of opinion seems to-be that we co-eds are desirable mainly for our gentle influence on the oppo- site sex. Mr. Williams—department of Eng- lish -"I am all for co-education. I woul...

The girl's gym class is progressing nicely under amiable Coach Ashcratt. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Fri- day the Co-ed tumblers practice their acrobatic teats at the field house. Only small number ot girls indulge In tbe psort. Possibly more interest would be taken If basketball, volley ball and in- door baseball teams were organised, but this is well-nigh impossible with- out a department ot GIRL'S ATH- LETICS. The Rice girls have a Tennis Club, which sponsors tournaments. Only a few girls belong to the Club, however. Every girl, who is interested in tennis, whether she be a novi...

Montgomery moves with consum- mate grace and 'surety in the field, which is quite comforting to Messrs. Cecil Keith, Phil Abies, and Paul Smith, the Rice pitching staff. Over a stretch of four games, George ac- cepted 27 chances without an error. Montgomery has a fine chance to win all-conference honors ...

Sport Yarns Turner Picks All-Conference Team WiMi By Elbert Turner For many of ua the impossible hu happened. Claude Bracey has been beaten in a sprint race. Last week at Dallas in the annual Southweet Conference track and field meet. Bracey met defeat for the first time in his collegiate career. Cy Leland, the T. C. U. flash, led Claude Bracey over the wire by a scant foot in the 220 yard dash. A stiff SO mile gale blew steadily Into the faces of the two great sprint- ers as they battled it out for con- ference honors. Bracey copped the 100 yard dash by a good two yards. Leland's time for the 220 was 22.6; Bracey's time for the 100 was 10.1. Saturday's trouncing should do Bracey a lot of good. It should give Claude something to work for to avenge. Leland is nobody's set-up on any track. And at Chicago this summer, there not only will be Cy Leland, but George Simpson of Ohio State. A new chap- ter of "Hot Feet" should be written when this trio gets together. Gladys SchiU in Form Mis...
