FRIDAY, MAT 12, 1961
AT THE SENATE . . .
Form Group Submitted;
Publications Hood Named
By LARRY MOORE
At their last meeting of the
academic year, the Student Sen-
ate cleared away some old busi-
ness and organized a number of
committees whose work over the
summer will hopefully get next
year off to a good start.
John Bonds reported that at a
meeting of the social committee
on Monday night, next year's so-
cial calendar was set up. One
closed date for an all school func-
tion was allowed to the Student
Association, to each class, and to
each college. Since, of the col-
leges, only Jones and Wiess re-
quested such a date, there will be
only eight closed dates next year.
THE SENATE next passed a
resolution in favor of a fall de-
livery for next year's Campanile.
This action was necessary before
final approval from the Admin-
istration can be obtained.
Bob Clarke submitted for ap-
proval the following members of
the Forum Committee: Charles
(Continued from Page 2)
allowed to sway the minds of
the Administration enough to
make them cancel the only good
function left to the Rice-ites, i.e.
Archi-Arts. (The protestors were
probably miffed because they
didn't get patron bids!)
Now I see by the front page
of The Thresher there is a
rumor that the Beer-Bike Race
T - might be cancelled because of an
*** asinine editorial in one of the
THE TROUBLE with people
like those that write editorials
of that nature is that they have
totally forgotten what it was like
to be young.
To the Administration, I make
my plea: Please don't let these
people talk you into outlawing
one of the last vestiges of what
was once not only an instruqjive,
but enjoyable college career.
DONALD L. GIBBON
Class of 1958
The Thresher has been unable to find
out the cost of new records for the
carillon, but we have put Mr. Gibbon's
donation aside in case others wish to add
to it. The matter will be studied in
detail this fall.—Ed.

He also asked that Mike Buck-
ley be allowed to serve on the
committee to handle publicity,
and that Dr. Rimlinger be made
the faculty advisor.
SEVERAL MEMBERS of the
Senate expressed concern that
there might be a heavily conserv-
ative bias to the committee, but
after the leftist tendencies of
certain of the members were
pointed out, the recommendations
Acting on a previous resolution
that the Chairman of the Pub-
lications Board be no longer spe-
cifically the Councilman-at-Large,
but simply a member of the Ex-
ecutive Committee, the Senate ap-
proved the appointment of Bethie
Rollins to this post.
A further appointment to
handle coordination of Freshman
Orientation Activities is Doug
PRESIDENT MARTIN an-
nounced that the Senate is going
ahead to organize a Student Ju-
dicial Council. Martin described
the purpose of such a council
as two-fold. First it would serve
to investigate discipline matters
and procedures. Second, it would
make recommendations to the
faculty members controlling dis-
cipline and meet with them when
Martin said that he and Larry
Moore would make an investiga-
tion over the summer of student
discipline bodies at other colleges
and seek the best means to imple-
ment this program at Rice.
Judy Poinsett proposed that
representatives from each college
compile a book over the sum-
mer that would contain the pic-
tures of every entering fresh-
man. This printed booklet would
be distributed free to freshmen,
and then perhaps be sold to in-
terested upperclassmen. The idea
met with approval.

New Anthropology Prof To Explore
Ancient Village Sites In Near East
By HARVEY POLLARD
How does one find evidence of
the oldest domestic plants in the
world? The answer to this ques-
tion and others concerning the
history of our civilization is to
be attempted soon by a new
acquisition to the Rice Univer-
sity Department of Anthropology,
Dr. Frank Hole.
DR. HOLE, currently of the
University of Chicago, and
slated to join the University in
two semesters as assistant pro-
fessor of Anthropology, will be
the field director on a trip that
will take him through most of
the country of Iran in his quest
According to Dr. Edward Nor-
beck, head of the Department
of Anthropology at Rice, the
earliest findings of this sort to
date have been found near Jar-
mo, Iraq. Hole will be exploring
the ancient village sites along
the rolling hills on the flanks of
the Euphrates. The official title
of the expedition is "Rice-Orien-
tal Institute (University of
Chicago) Expedition to Iran."
DR. NORBECK mentioned a
few of the methods that Hole
will be using to determine
whether or not his findings are
of the great antiquity that he de-
sires. One of the methods is by
radioactive carbon. Individual
grain seeds would be tested, this
being made possible by their be-
ing carbonized by fire or being
preserved from insects in some
other way. Another method would
be to examine pottery found on
the same levels of ground for im-
pressions made by these ancient
ornamental craftsmen on the un-
DR. HOLE will be making his
explorations with a company of
about eight or ten, and will camp
in the dangerous hill country
until late next fall. He will then
join the facuty at Rice in the
