YOU WtLL MEEO A CORONA !N COLLEGE
STUDENT'S who hand in coronatyped
themes, essays, iaboratory and lecture notes
invariably receive higher marks. !n fact,
you are badly handicapped in school or col-
lege without a Corona.
Seniors' theses MUST be typewritten, so why not have a
machine now and use it all through college'.'
Then, too—cqronatyping your notes helps you to remem-
ber them, and when exams come you have something leg-
ible to study from.
A few years ago it was a for-
tunate student who could possess
a typewriter—for a "standard" ma-
chine cost $100—and then it had to
be crated and shipped to college.
What 8tudents Say:
"Corona goes to school with me
every day. Theme work is done
more quickly and neatly. "—Byron
"My notes are always neat and or
derly and easy to read."—Earle F.
Brookins. Alfred University.
But Corona can be tucked away in a corner of a suit case,
and costs but $50—easy monthly payments.

An informal social wiii be heid on
the lawn of the South Main Baptist
Church at 8 o'clock Friday evening,
September 23. All Rice students are
invited to come enjoy the games and
fun. There will be something doing
every minute. The old students wiil
renew their friendships, and the Fresh-
men will get acquainted.
The girls are eagerly awaiting the
return of Mr. Leslie Mann, who will
make the finai announcements about
the physical training for women. !t
is hoped that three afternoons a week
are to be devoted to work in the gym
this year. This work is not compuls-
ory. but it is advised, and there will
be a notice posted later about signing
up for it with Mrs. Stratford.
It is necessary for every girl in the
Institute to register with Mrs. Strat-
ford. If you haven't done this, go im-
mediately to her office and do it.
Ttice is extremely glad to welcome
its out-of-town girls. Owing to the
tack of provision for women on the
campus comparatively few have made
Rice their choice of schools. This
year there is a much larger number
than ever before and every ottehere
is anxious to get act]uainted"ith the
ttew girls at once. Among these girls
art several who have no relatives
Miss Florence Xichohts from t'ieve-
lantl, Ohio, is the sister of Air. H. O.
Nicholas of the chemistry depart-
Miss Nell Vance Davis from San
Augustine, Texas, a Freshman here,
is a cousin of Rev. J. Ludd Davis,
president of the -t. M. C. A. and a
member of the Samurai Club.
Miss Abby H. Duggan. sister of Hen
Duggan of the class of '24, comes
from San Antonio to register here as
a Freshtnan. She is also a sister of
Alston Duggan of the class of IS. who
died at his home in San Antonio this
summer. Old students remember him
as commanding officer of the S. A. T.
C. here during the war and think of
him only with love and admiration.
Miss Minnie Kate Sewell of Mexia,
is also a Freshman here this year. Her
brother, Alt*. Walter Sewell is late reg-
istering this term, owing to a recent

Announcement has been made that
there will be a "Saturday Night
Dance" in the Commons tomorrow
night at 8:30. The initial one of
these dances was staged in the Com-
mons last Saturday night and a large
number of students attended
For the edification of new students
it is timely to say a word about the
two girls' literary clubs, the Elizabeth
Baldwin Literary Society and the Pal-
las Athene Literary Society, better
known as "E. B. L. S." and "P. A. L.
S ' respectively. These organizations
are for the purpose of promoting in-
terest and study along literary lines
and the membership is honorary. New
members are voted it) each year, and
it is considered a great honor to be
among the. lucky ones chosen. It has
previously been the custom for the
two clubs to unite in giving a large
social function at which they meet
the new girls and "get acquainted."
Attendance at this affair is also by
invitation. More about it will he an-
