I'll bet you folks wilt all he glad of everything now You see 1 won a place in the track meet here last week. It was some meet and was better than Greek meeting Greek. You see I runs in the hurdle race. We all gets up on the mark at the end ot a long line of tilings to jump over and a guy shoots a gun. Then we runs. Well you see they was five of us in the race and three places counts. The man says. "Take your marks." but not being German I didn't have none to take. Then the gink says. “Get set." and 1 gets to laughing thinking about my pet hen that 1 forgets to run when the gun goes off. POLE VAULTS HURDLES I jumps straight up in the air and then I starts to run. It sure was easy running. 1 jumps them sticks fine only it takes so long to get down to the ground again. 1 was exclusive. 1 runs along by myself. I is just get ting down to taking the hurdles in form and wasn't looking up. when 1 s«-es one of the runners drop out. He yells. ‘ Where you goin’? The race over." I looks up and they is get ting ready to run the next race, but 1 thinks this is a good chance to practice and makes a pretty race against time to the tape. Then In looking ovei the battlefield over which we had trod some guy says. “The runners in tlies* three lanes is disinqualified for knock ing over too many hurdles." 1 is the only other runner to finish the race and 1 clears the hurdles so far in my jumps not even the wind from me could knock over the hurdles. So I gets first place in the race and the frosh carry me around on their shoulders 'cause all the other guys was sophs, aud that almost won the meet. MUSTY BATS SECOND Then some body comes running up to me and says. “My hero,” and it is llittie. and 1 says. "Says which?" and she says.

One Thousand Copies Printed; io Be Sold at Iwo-bits Per At AI! Colleges Wampus is out today. With art numbers, stories, editorials and features surpassing in originality and snap any that have formerly appeared. according to Al Wesson. Wampus edi-'.or, the funny magazine is expected to nave a greater sale than any number issued this year. "Cnly one thousand copies have o:*en printed." said Wesson yesterday, •and we expect every one of them to be Told before noon. The demand for the Wampus is constantly increasing.” The issue out today is designated as fhe “Feminine Gender Number." and in it. it is said, the Wampus staff has found occasion to cast some mean •dtirs at the "female of the species." All of tlie secrets that make women tiie most desirable as well as the most deadly of living creatures are discussed at length. Wampus kitty claims to have a more than passing knowledge of the ways and wiles of the fair sex. Although the Feminine Gender number has been issued expressly for the edification of Trojan warriors whose hearts have been sorely mangled, it is expected that the Amazons will seize upon the <-opies. For what is more fascinating than to see one’s self discussed in print ? “Willie Live." juvenile writer for the Trojan, has allied himself with the Wampus and contributed a play said to be startling in its dramatic climaxes and instructive to the “enth" degree on the trickery of women. Material for the play, ii is asserted, was gathered from frequent defeats at the hands of llittie Magin and the Knott sisters. Willie’s play is in slang. Willie has other material in the issue, also. A dashing three-color cover adorns the Feminine Gender Wampus. The book also boasts a number of aggravating sketches and still more aggravating yarns. It boasts the usual thirty-two pages and sells at the customary price of twenty-five cents. The Spirit of the winged god of victory swooped jove-ially down upon Covard Field last Friday afternoon, where, perching upon the hopeful banner of Coach Cromwell’s precocious Pea-Gfeeners, it rerna.ned until said frosh nad walked safely away with the w. k. Bacon. It was the scene of the annual inter nal warfare which reaches its cliir.ax about this time every year, in the nature of an interclass track meet. Result of desperate battle: Frosh, 70 points: sophs, 53 points: juniors, one lone digit: seniors, none at ali. Neither time, nor distance, nor height attained was phenomenal, but the meet was fea tu reel by stellar performances in all events. MANY FEATURES A choice of features is difficult, but the performances which stood out prominently were; Mike Elwood. after capturing the mile, turned around and annexed the two mile run; the! consistent showing of Yale Martz in taking both the 220 and lou yard dashes in good time; and the usual consistency of Otto Anderson in tak- ! ini; the broad jump and 220-yard low ! hurdles. Rut as for popularity with the spec : tators. the high jumy was the big event of interest. The chief center; of interest was Baird Ryder, frosh. late of Hollywood High, and performing j for the first time publicly for IT. S. ('. j The fans had expected “Old Reliable" Oliver Corey to take the high leap j event with his usual ease, without Having to extend himself. But this Ryder uncorked a brand of sky-riding that j won the enthusiastic plaudits of the 1 assembled on lookers. Oliver had to go up to 6 feet 1V2 inches before he \ could dispose of Ryder, who followed | him closely with a leap of t] feet, inch. CHARLIE HELPS OUT Percy Neirsbach ran a very good j race in the 880-yard run. although lie : was followed not so far behind by j Smutz and Maas. Percy placed third in the 220 dash.

This is being done to encourage all those outside workers who are not in direct touch with the campus, according to] the Trojan stall'. NO ADVERTISING Contrary to the usual practice, the Wednesday edition will contain absolutely no advertising matter. According to the present plans for the makeup of the paper it will be filled from beginning to end with forceful, straight-from-the-shoulder reasons why not only the students of U. S. C., hut also Southern California in its entirety, should get behind the efforts of tiie campaign committee to make a bigger and better institution of Southern California’s most representative college. One feature of the Wednesday edition will be an illustration depicting some of the more outstanding reasons why the big effort to raise funds should be successful.

There are important plans to be discussed, and it is imperative that every' member be there. Wildcats Claw Trojans In Two Court Contests Arizona’s fighting Wildcats handed local fans a big surprise last Friday and Saturday nights when they took both ends of the two game series with the Trojan quintet. The first game was an exciting, closely contested affair, with the issue in doubt up tc the very end, the final score being Arizona 23. S. C. 13. Saturday’s game went to the invaders by the wide margin of 24 to 8. The Trojan five did not show the same brand of basketball that they had exhibited earlier in the season. Several members of the squad were in bad shape and it showed up in the playing of the team as a whole. The men tried hard enough, and fought from the first whistle to the last in each game, but the old smooth working combination was gone. The Wildcats played good ball, and would have made any team step out to beat them. Their shooting was deadly in its accuracy, and they followed the ball all of the time. Gordon Campbell was the main score producer for the Trojan five in the first game. Campbell was playing in good form, and accounted for 9 of the 18 points the Trojans were able to register. Captain White, just out of bed from an attack of the fin, was rushed into tlte game in an attempt to urti the tide against the Wildcats, .tfid lie accounted for three more points. Bone. Wayhan and Hawkins each copped two points. For the Wildcats. Tovre was the bright and I shining light with 13 *>oinfs to his I I credit. In the second game, after a brief flash at the very start on the part of j the Trojanthe men from Arizona the lone eight tallies that S. C. was credited with. Swede Anderson deserves mention for his cool, steady playing. AH of the Trojans were scrapping every minute of the time, but they couldn’t get going, and the Arizonians proceeded to pile up an overwhelming lead. Tovre was again the star for the invaders. When that bird plays, the scorekeepers need a brand new addins: machine on hand. In this game tin- lanky forward accounted for 20 of the 24 points scored by the Wildcats.
