THE THRE SHE E i! HO VSTPH. T EX AS DUAL MEET WITH TEXAS ON SATURDAY Prospects Bright for Copping the Track Rice stands a good chance to cop the meet Saturday. From Saturday's demonstration of track ability against the Baylor team, a great deal of con- fidence has been placed in the Owi spiked shoe athletes as to their ability. Frank Goss measured up to his previous standards on the track. He showed tremendous speed when he ran the century and 220 yard dash. He is counted on making two first places against.Texas. Fitch, a new man to the Owl team this year, cover- ed himself with laurels Saturday. He should count against the Longhoms in the meet this week. Watt is a sure bet in the quarter miie for Rice with Simpson close to his heeis. Watt showed speed on the curves. He has developed a pretty stride for his races this year. Coieman is entered in the mile and haif-mile for Rice. He did some good work last Saturday. The Longhoms have some exceptionally good distance men this year. The...

THE THANHHBR *: NOUSTOM, TB3EAZ c* DULCY AND SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER } oritic in England, though mat the b«t, wrote of a con- temporary comedy jmt produced upon the etage: "There vw a new play teat night, which euceeeded pro- digioaeiy ... you laugh very much, yet it ia a wretehed comedy. The Muee atoope indeed; ahe is dragged up to the knees, and haa trudged, I be- Meve, from Southward fair. The whoie view of the piece is low humor, and no humor is in it. The heroine has no more merit than Lady Bridget, and the author's wit is as much manque as the lady's, but some of the characters are weU acted. . . A comedy—no, it is the lowest of all farces. It is not the subject I con- demn, though very vulgar, but the ex- ecution. The drift tends toward no moral, no edification of any kind. The situations, however, are weU imagin- ed, and make one laugh in spite of the grossness of the diaiogue, the forced witticisms and tota) improb- ability of the whoie pian and conduct.

VOLUME VHI MCE INSTITUTE, HOUSTON, TEXAS, APRIL 13, 1923 NUMBER 27 Site of Troy Theme of Address. In the amphitheatre of Rice Institute Sunday afternoon, Dr, Lindsey Biay ney, professor of German at the Insti. tute, delivered a ieeture on "Schiie mann and the Site of Ancient Troy." Recent discoveries in Egypt have stimuiated interest in the archaeo- logical Held, and it was an opportune time to pay respect to the great Ger- man-American archaeologist, Heinrich Sehliemann, who has been called "the father of research with the spade, and the centenary of whose birth falls in this academic year. "Aside from his remarkable arch aeological discoveries," said Doctor Blayney, "Schliemann's life is of more than ordinary interest; because it is as it were, a modern Odyssey, recount- ing signal successes against seemingly hopeless odds; because it demon- strates the invincible power of an un- swerving devotion to the dreams of youthful fancy; because it illustrates the everlasting durability o...

Tidden Gives His Lecture in Physics Amphitheatre On Sunday afternoon at 4:30 p. m. in the Physics Aphitheater John Ciark Tidden, instructor in architect tural drawing and painting read a lecture on the art of Sir Joshua Reyn- olds. This was the fourteenth of a series of anniversary iectures spon- sored by the Institute. The abstract of Mr. Tidden's lec- ture: "Every once in so often our fa- vorite fabies are completely contro- verted. My story should begin some- what in this fashion: Sir Joshua Reynolds was born at Plympton, Eng- land, on July 16, 1723, of honest but extremeiy poor parents, and at was necessary for him to biacken his baby Angers in the sooty chimney in or- der to make his first chiidish drawings on the waits of the very modest dwelling, etc., etc.—but sentiment and romance here get a body biow.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS Art of ReynoMs Subject of Address (Continued from Page 1.) when the American portrait painter combined the craft of sign painting with that more nobie branch, and was )itt!e better off socially than the itin- erant cioth merchant, and more pooriy paid. "Ten years later, in 1708, the Royal Academy was founded and Joshua Reynolds was made its first presi- dent, and the king knighted him. Five years later Oxford gave him the de- gree of D. C. L. and he was appointed portrait painter to the king. "A life of honor and freedom from financial worries would perhaps tend to soften and spoil the ordinary man, and stow up his brush, but this V'ns not the case with Reynolds. On the contrary, with additional honors came increased labor, and at this time his output of paintings amounted to the astounding number of 150 portraits annually. "Reynolds sitters were drawn al- most entirety from the highest social stratum. His most successful can- vases were of women. He h...

With practicaiiy no opposition, Rice made the poorest showing of the year. With Goss and Coleman on the sick iist, the team seemed to !ack an im- petus. In the hundred and two-twenty yard dashes, Fitch took two firsts, but oniy by a Hying leap in the two hundred and twenty yard dash. Standi# as usual took his two firsts in the shot put and the discus throw. McGee in the high hurdies displayed something never seen before on the Rice Fieid by winning his event when his ieg went back on him by hopping and skipping to the finish.

THE THRESHER :: HOUSTON, TEXAS A.gfAf. Corner fo KMae For Game Ne#f Wlee% The end of the Southwestern con- ference baseball is fast approaching. The Owls have on!y four more games—two with Texas A. and M., the 3rd and 4th of May, and two with Baylor at Waco on May 14 and 15. The two games with A. and M. are aH-important because the Aggies are teading the conference by a narrow margin and to drop a two-game series to the Owis would more than likely mean losing the conference title. Therefore these two games will bring out the best in both teams. The Owls and Farmers have not met this year, as the games which were to be played at College Station were rained out. The Baylor games will mark the dose of the coHege baseball career for three of the Rice stars. Captain Mel- ton, Jimmy Hughes and Bo Poliard are piaying their last year for the In- stitute.

Feeling against the muzzling of dogs was branded as "well meaning but misguided sentimentality" by Asa Crawford Chandler, Ph. D., instructor in biology at Rice, in a lecture deliver- ed in the Physics amphitheater at 4:30 p. m. Sunday. Dr. Chandler was discussing the works and contributions to science made by Louis Pasteur, father of bac- teriology. He told of the strides that have been made in scientific knowl- edge as a resuit of the discoveries by l'astcur and of the complete eradica- tion of rabies in England due to the muxxiing of ail dogs. "About four months ago we wit- nessed the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Louis PaSteur, and it is fitting, therefore, that we should stop for an hour to ret-aH the contri- butions made by this great French scientist to the welfare of mankind, and to refiect on the great strides win...
