W. a WOOD TALKS
TO ENGINEERS IN
And Accepted To
The Engineering Society held its
regular meeting Wednesday, January
24th, in the Commons, President
Luecke presiding. Several amend-
ments to the constitution were accept-
ed. According to these amendments
in the future there will be three
ciasses of membership—active, in-
active or honorary. The inactive
membership includes ail those in the
society who have not been initiated.
It is planned to hold an initiation for
a Ihrge number of new members on
Engineers' Day. Some day in April
wiil be chosen. These new amend-
ments require that aii candidates for
initiation must have been inactive
members in good standing for at least
one term prior to initiation. The so-
ciety has provided for a historian
whose duty it shaii be to search the
records of the past in an endeavor to
compile a complete history of the so-
ciety's activities since its organiza-
F. P. Brogniii was appointed chair-
man of a committee to provide for
an entertainment during the present
Mr. W. E. Wood, generai manager
of the Houston Electric Co., made a
very interesting talk on the technical
executive in which he showed that
one of the most important phases of
our college life is the association and
persona! contact with our fellow stu-
dents. Mr. Wood extended the so-
ciety an invitation to visit any of the
plants of the Houston Electric Co.
He expressed his surprise to And such
an active, energetic organization at
the Rice Institute and suggested that
they make an effort to get into closer
contact with the business men of
Houston, believing that such a move-
ment would result in benefiting both
the schooT and the city.

the first of its kind to be given in this
part of the country. Mr. Tidden, who
was present At this affair, is giving
some very valuable suggestions for
both scenery and costumes. Later in
the term, sketches, suggesting possible
costumes, will be run in The Thresher.
It will be remembered that these sug-
gestions were a great help before the
Spanish ball, which was given by the
Archie Arts last year.
Besides Mr. and Mrs. Tidden there
is assisting Mr. Ellis, president of the
Architectural Society, in arrangement
and plans, Mr. James Chiilman, who
has been for the past four years in
Europe, and has recently returned to
resume his duties in the Architectural

of tickets will be limited.
