No Dues for Sophs This Year;
Entrance to Be $2
Sophomores rejoice! You will not
have to nay class dues this year, so
says Gordon Turrentlne. However, If
you want to go to this dance you
will have to uncork $2.00. Anyone
with the <2.00 can get a bid. Bids
will probably be sold the week preced-
ing the dance. The struggle will be
hotter than any ihat has ever pre-
ceded It In Sophomore balls. It will
be presided over by two orchestras,
who, by the way, have already been
signed"up insuring the (act that there
will be two o£ them. Their names,
however, will not be divulged. As
yet no hall has been decided upon
but Turnverein and Concordia are
the two most seriously considered.
The most money this year will not
be expended on decorations but will
be used on music which the advance
notices say will be extra hot. There
will be some good specialties between
dances so says Turrentine. Neverthe-
less the decorations will be worth
looking at. The dance will still be
held on the 31st of March, and ac-
cording to all advance dope it will be
more than worth the two dollars
which it will cost.
SNAPS AND LOTS OF 'EM
f. A. WhMltr, Music Specialist to
Appear at Autry House
Mr. FrancU Allen Wheeler, music
specialist of the Playground and Rec-
reation Association of America, will
be in Autry House March 1st, 3rd and
5th for the purpose of conferring with
all who are interested in the music
Campanile Asks Students
The first of these conferences will be
held at 1:45 p. m., at Autry House,
and all are Invited who are interest-
ed in a community music program,
who will help in establishing musical
activities and in discovering music
talent, or who are engaged in direct-
ing music in clubs, schools, churches,
Ah, little snapshot, don't, you cry,
you'll be in the Campanile by and by.
"Snaps", lots ol' 'em, are wanted for
the Campanile. Every student has
been asked to bring pictures and
leave them in the upper (middle)
drawer of the desk in The Thresher
office, but as yet, the legs of the said
desk have not curved in from the
weight of the aforementioned pic-
If every student would bring one
picture for himself, one for every stu-
dent who is absent, two for every
probationer and two tor every bust
out, there would be a lot of "snaps".
However, if every student would
bring half that many pictures, the
Campanile would be satisfied.
As Slime Fungus suys, "It ain't
how many "snaps" you bring; it's
how much ginger they have in 'em."
GLEE CLUB AT WORK
To Make Debut at Autry House and
The Rice Glee Club, a group of
practical vocalists, with Sally Keith
at the head and Dorothy DuMars as
pianist, has not been heard from for
quite a while but nevertheless, it has
been practicing regularly, learning
new songs and preparing for their
debut at the Autry House, which will
take place at an early date. Shortly
after this the club will appear at the
The Rice Trio is working on new
stuff which they will spring when
they make their appearnace at the
lsis Theatre in the near future.
These maneuvers show that the Glee
Club is not dead as some would-be
pessimists would have you believe.
A letter to Jack Major from the
City of Houston states that several
positions will be open to members of
the Glee Club in the City Recreation
Department this summer. This an-
nouncement along with the fact that
the club is still open for new mem-
bers ought to materially increase the
rolls of the club. According to Jack
Major, first tenors are especially de-
Being still in its infancy, the club
needs and merits the support of the
student body. As great things are
expected of the club, let the students
answer the, call for assistance accord-
ingly. Especially attractive should
be the offer made by the city. A
good position for the summer will
thus be secured.
And have the class editors to the
various class Threshers been selected?

WHEN the dark skies are
pouring rain outside.
And fickle fate deals you
hands at bridge that you
play with consummate
skill—have a Camel!
For Camel is the silent
partner that helps every
deserving player win his
game. Camels never hurt
or tire the taste, never
leave a trace of cigaretty
after-taste. Regardless of
the gold you spend,
you'll never get choicer
tobaccos than those
rolled into Camels.
So this evening as you
ply your unerring skill,
evoke then the mellow-
est fragrance that ever
came from a cigarette.
Have a Camel!
Camels represent the utmost in cigarette quality. The
choicest of Turkish and Domestic tobaccos are blended into
Camels by master blenders and the finest of French cigarette
paper is made especially for them. Into this one brand is
concentrated all Of the knowledge, all of the skill of the
world's largest organisation of expert tobacco men.
Our highest wish, if you
do not yet know Camel
quality, is that you try
them. We in file you to
compare Camels with
any cigarette made at
