sical training is trying a new plan
this year. Besides the rest course
there lire others to develop posture,
balance, grace and carriage, The sec-
ond six weeks are for the develop-
ment of the large muscles. The Dan-
ish system Is being used, whereby the
entire body Is put Into action.
There is a sport class for advanced

DELEGATES OFF TO
Miss Horlock to Preside at
Meeting of College
Delegates from the Cranmer Club,
Rice organisation of Episcopal stu-
dents, leave this evening for Beau-
mont where this year's Student Coun-
cil will be held during the next three
days. Cranmer Club representatives
will Include Rex White. Lillian Hor-
lock, Catherine Long, Irma Fonvllle,
Maurlne Brown, and Carl Illig, presi-
dent of the Rice organization. This
group will attend the annual Service
League banquet tonight In Beaumont,
and tomorrow will meet with simjlar
groups from A. & M. and Texas Uni-
versities to work out organization
plans for the coming year. Tomorrow
afternoon these groups will picnic
with the assembled Service League
of the State, and tomorrow night
they will be honored with a dance on
the roof of the Beaumont Hotel. Re-
ligious services will be held on both
Saturday and Sunday mornings. Tho
Rev. Hart, for ten years chaplain of
the University of Pennsylvania will
be the guest speaker for the Council.
Miss Lillian Horlock of Rice will
preside over the college division of
the Council delegates. At the busi-
ness sessions tomorrow the question
of "transferring Church memberships
to college parishes will be discussed,
and as the Cranmer Club Is at pres-
ent experlnclng much difficulty at
present over a program Involving such
transfers, It Is hoped that a satis-
factory working bnsls for the schedule
may be worked out. This program
was suggested by the Rev. Peter Gray
Sears at the FaU Retreat at Austin
last September, and was Immediately
adopted by the Cranmer Club. So,r for
the past sqhool term the Cranmer
Club has urged Its members to be-
come members of Palmer Church. Be-
sides this affiliation the Cranmer
Club has also retained Its connection
with the Diocesan Organisation of
Texas, and will this year at Beaumont
make a contribution of 1100 to their
mlslsonary fund. At the council It will
be decided whether both of these af-
filiations shall be continued.
IN PSYCHOLOGY 300
Students To Be Subjects in
Members of Dr. F. A. Battle's Psy-
chology 300 class are anticipating
with some apprehension (lie begin-
ning of the psychology laboratory
sections which will open shortly after
the February exams. They hate been
informed that the work will vary
greatly from the methods of former
years by the substitution of them-
selves as subjects for experiment in
the place former y held by smaller
lit preparation for this work, Dr.
I'altlo has been directing the metam-
orphosis of the old chemistry exhibi-
tion room into a modern psychology
What was formerly one large room
has been divided Into some half-dozen
rooms of various sizes. Each of them
is equipped for the study of one or
perhaps two related phases of psy-
A striking feature of the new ar-
rangement is the addition of built-in
cases lining the walls. These hold all
manner of fascinating equipment and
exhibits, and provide a convenient de-
pository for materials used ill ex-
One rather large room, fitted so
that, it will always remain semi-dark
has been arranged for the study of
color perceptions and related subjects.
Another, down In the basement, equip-
ped for total darkness is a specie of
photographer's lab. In this room, Dr.
Pat,tie has a variety of appliances for
the development of photographic
prints, whether t hey be only the en-
largement of records or actual pic-
tures. This room Is notably complete
In electric features. V
Dr. Battle's pocket edition laborato-
ries is a tiny room In which he is con-
ducting a model chicken farm. Over
(he surface formed by pushing several
tables together Dr. Pattle has arranged
pleasant, living quarters for over a
dozen high bred chickens.
These little patricians are being
reared scientifically and in luxurious
surroundings with electric heat and
tender attention to their several diets.
According to Dr. Pattle the purpose
of this work Is (lie study of social
Instincts of chicks. Dally records of
the activities of the subjects are made
on a drum and will be compared after
a period of observations.
Work In the lab sections will be
done in pairs, so that the students
mny experiment, on one another. At
present there are 38 members In the
class. „,The enrollment will probably
be altered after the February exami-
nations, Dr. Pattle says.

It. Weiser of the Dcpa;' meat of Chem-
istry. The subject of the address
was resppnrible for the pr sence of a
large number of Houston's prominent
physicians and surgem- in addition
to the usual people of II 'imou who
are quick to take advantage of the
cultural and educational Opportuni-
ties afforded by the It-Unite through
these lectures. Dr. Weiser spoke on
"Collodlal Phenomena 10 Gall St on >s."
His first lecture in the series, "Glimps-
es Beyond the Mi'-roscope," on "The
Twilight. Zone of Matter," dealt more
generally with that latest branch in
the field of chemistry. Hie eo'loniai.

In observing cross sections of gall
stones concentric rings are to he ccen.
which were formerly thought to be

which Dr. Weiser advances ths l.iese-

reacting solutions are allowed to dif-
fuse through a jelly instead of uni-
form precipitation throughout the jel-
ly a series of bands form, between
which there is no precipitntion.
Dr. Weiser believes that red and
green bile may similarly diffuse Into
the gall stone, which has the charac-
ter of a jelly.
The lecture was Illustrated with
experiment and lantern slides. Some
very beautiful examples of the Liese-
gang rings were presented, which
showed a remarkable similarity lo
those of (he stones, A number of
stones were also exhibited.
The next lecture, Sunday January
19, will also be by Dr. Weiser. and
will cover "Collodlal Behavior In Can-
cer." The following Sunday Dr. Ax-
son will start a series of three lec-
tures to be followed In turn by Dt.

Y. W. C. A. Interest Groups
Are To Begin Next February
The Interest Groups which the V.
W. C. A. ended Just before Christmas
w(Jl not meet any more this term, be-
cause of the short interval before the
exams, It was learned today. The
question of whether or not the groups
will be held next term will be put be-
fore the members at a meeting this
week. It Is thotight that a new plan
will be tried In the near future.
Coming as It does on a holiday and
a week before the starting of exami-
nations. the dance will not hamper
the studies of even the worst student
in Rice. There is a. probability of the
hands realizing as much as from
tills dance, ami a possibility that prof-
Its will range as high as the $'!00i
Tile band will use the proceeds from
this dance to purchase the new mil !
forms that: have been talked of ail
this year. Forty or lie will be pur
chased immediately .and the remain-
ing number, those necessary in order
to have new ones for the first foot !
ball games of next season will lie pur-
chased next summer.
Fifteen hundred dttcnt , have been
mailed to ris many a III mil! of the I
Institute, and as around HO per cent |
of line's alumni are at present lin-
ing in Houston a great many are i
expected to attend.
Four hundred and twenty bids have
been issued to 42 memheis ot the
bund, to assure every Mice student
an opportunity to inn-cHasc ;> ticket
as soon as possible.
Three committees wer. appointed'
by Manager Harvin c. Moon- of the'
baud last; week: These are: the ar-
rangements committee, the ticket com-
mittee, and (he publicity committee.
About, ten members of the band made
up ca«h of these groups.
Officials of the band are liking
bids on the uniforms, and are ex-
pected to announce the results ol |
these bids in the near future. Ii is [
thought that I hey wilt lie ordered from
a local firm, as the band intends to
patronize those who patronize It.
