Contrary to what seemed to be a University tradition, a worth-while play was attempted this time. Reflecting for a moment over the mem-lories of “Green Stockings," “Mister onio” and “Sydney Carton.” it is ewhat a surprise to observe that steady succession of poor plays >wed by poorer ones has at last i>een broken. If the junior class and College of Oratory follow the ex-mple set by Lance and Lute, it might )t require wholly loyalty to the Uni-'erity to induce students to attend C. dramatic performances in the uture. The educational and enter-ainment values of the productions lay become sufficiently attractive to jstify the student's expenditure of me and price of admission. ‘The Great Galeoto” has been rated niong the leading dramas of the past deration. Though it can hardly be unpared with the works of Shake leare, as some continental cities ive done, it does deserve a place nong the dozen best modern dramas, ^d unquestionably surpasses, in its eatmemt of fundamental social fac rs, the vast majority of American ays.

C. is the opinion of the national director af the studeni campaign: Chicago, 111., Nov. 9, 1921. Mr. C. A. Heinze, President, Los Angeles, Chapter A. A. E., Los Angeles, Cal. My dear Mr. Heinze: With your permission, 1 will reply to vour letter to INIr. Garman concerning the student chapter at the University of Southern California, as the question which you brought up has been definitely settled and the answer will, I am sure, prove entirely satisfactory to all concerned. Although the campaign is not yet over and it looks as though there will V another, or possibly two other chapters that will secure 100 per cent, it has been decided that a cup will be awarded to every chapter reaching ‘hat figure, since the terms of the cam-naign were that the cup would go to the chapter getting the highest percentage. Since the banners to rbe awarded go tc the chapters east and west which have the highest percentage increase, it was decided that this expedient would not do in case of a tie for first place in the main competi-I tion. Therefore, in all probabilities, the cup which is now held by the Univer-i sity cf Arizona will remain there, and ______a new one will be presented to the Uni- O / iff T / /" versity of Southern Cal ifornia with the A | privilege of retaining it next year if --1 the/ secure 100 per cent, or at least, harlie May not Line-Plunge in ‘he’ highest percentage.

WELL KNOWN FIRMS AID LOCAL ROOTERS Further proof that Los Angeles is standing back of her University was given this week, when Harris & Frank donated one thousand megaphones and one thousand cardinal and gold cards to be used for bleacher stunts at the Oregon and Washington games. Desmond has also promised to give one ! lays of reconstruction. A pamphlet issued by the Los Angeles chapter gives the following resume: REPORT GIVEN j “From June, 1917. to October, 1921, the Los Angeles Chapter of the Amer-|ican Red Cross had 87,404 calls for assistance from ex-service men and their families. Not a single worthy case was turned away unassisted. During this period $".33,088.73 has been expended in giving timely aid to these needy claimants. Duriing the past year the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Red Cross has extended relief to ex-service men, their families and dependents, totalling $202,426.97. Many of those now rehabilitated, appreciating the aid extended to them by the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Red Cross, have returned tot his chapter thirty-three and one-third per cent of the moneys advanced. They have realized tiie necessity of continuing this great work and have not considered the aid extended to them as charity. CLOTHS FOR NEEDY Thousands of garments have been supplied to destitute ex-service men and their families, thousands have been extended in meeting the hospital bills of disabled ex-service men while their claims were awaiting action by the United States Government. This chapter established a work camp in conjunction with the city of Los Angeles, where approximately 1,000 men dere given employment. It established an employment bureau through which 12,976 unemployed were given work of a permanent and temporary character. It has maintained a highly efficient bureau to assist ex-service men in obtaining their compensation and hospital treatment from the United States Government. The Los Angeles chapter has received 22.164 requests for such aid during the past year NURSING CORPS The Los Angeles chapter has an auxiliary nursing corps of 500 trained nurses, who are called upon for service in times of need. During the past influenza epidemics they worked incessantly. The chapter’s department of insurance has assisted ex-service men in obtaining the protection of government insurance to the amount of $5,647,500. Its authorized representative have visited countless homes on errands of mercy. It has relieved sickness, financial distress, hunger, kept husbands, wives and children together and homes intact. It has raised the morale of deserving men and women brought near the brink of disaster by penalties of the war; enabled them to get a firmer hold on life. It has relieved the community of a costly burden that wTould have fallen on it had this imperative work of reconstruction been left to chance or charity. It has w’orked quietly, efficiently. energetically, and in a spirit of helpfulness.” With a stirring appeal for a greater unity and a deeper loyalty upon the part of the citizens of California in the solution of its problems, Governor William D. Stephens, former member of Beatty Inn, addressed over a hundred members of Phi Delta Phi at the annual fall banquet of the Beatty Inn at the Jonathan Club last Thursday | meet ’em. evening. The governor referred, among other things, in his address, to .he necessity of concerted action in developing the wonderful resources of the State and in protecting its interests, particularly as regards the ever-acute Japanese problem. He also spoke of the significance of the Armistice Day ceremonies, and the great Disarmament Conference in Washington and of the work California is doing for its veterans through the Soldiers’ Welfare Acts. Governor Stephens adverted, in a highly complimentary way, to the place and influence the University of Southern California possesses, and g<?ve assurance of his lasting and sympathetic interest in its progress. MANY JUDGES PRESENT Speakers included the Hon. John W. Shenk, presiding justice of the Los Angeles superior court, and Mr. E. A. Meserve, former president of the L. A Bar Association. Other guests of honor were the Hon. Victor E. Shaw and ‘he Hon. N. P. Conrey of the district court of appeal, and the Hon. Louis W. Myers of the superior ioou!:’t. Mr. Kemper Campbell presided as toastmaster. Just preceding the banquet, a class of ten candidates was formally initiated into the fraternity, the ceremonies being held in the court room and chambers of Judge Louis W. Myers, Department Eleven, of the superior court. Tliise initiated were Louis C. Runge, Julius Smart, Curtis W. Richards, H. C. Hopper, Arthur H. Kent, Harold W. Judson. Roy P. Dolley. Mark V. Chiesa, Arden L. Clark, and Harold J. Hunter. Informal pre-initiation ceremonies were held at the rooms in the Union League Building the preceding evening. Beatty Inn is planning a formal social function just prior to Christmas. The national biennial conclave of Phi Delta Phi will be held in Syracuse New York, the middle of December. Beatty Inn will be represented by Mr. Leonard E. Thomas as delegate. It begins to look like the first real college football game played in Southern California this year, folks. Either that, or somebody’s been spreading it on thick. Alex Ferry, coach of the Whittier ^oets. appears on the scene with the flat statement that— “U. S. C. will know Whittier went visiting.” We know one thing. Whittier’s football team, together with several hundred Poets, present and reformed, will toddle out onto Bova:d Field tomorrow' afternoon and “visit” the U. S. C. gridiron boys. Elmer Henderson, at times gloomy, says that he expects to select a dele gation of eleven Trojan gentlemen to Sort of expect a crowd out in the north bleachers, too. WHITTIER NO CINCH This Whittier team is no cinch. The game is for the championship of Southern California, poppies and all. U. S. C. went after the championship of the world not long ago. Something got In the way. and now we have to pick on Whittier. Some people are even betting good, cold American money that Whittier will win the game. Others are saving their dough for the Tia Juana racing season. All this prattle is just to show what the cuckoos think of the game. The general concensus of opinion is that the tra^k season is just over and that football is just beginning. Phil Tiernan h3S been threatening Charlev Paddock’s records all this fall. Even big t’harlev Dean did an 80-yard sprint that would make the shades of Bernie Wefers turn out another candle. Some Whittier bird rises to remark that Tiernan will clip a whole second the world’s record for the century. Meaning, of course, that it will take him a whole century to g3in a second’s worth of ground against the Poet line. WATCH SUGGETT Poets place their hones on a fellow named Ed Surgett.

Nov. 16.—“University of Washington Plays.” a series of plays written last year by students in play-writing, is the first book of its kind to be published in the West and will be off the press early in December. The publication will contain a variety, ranging from near tragedy to comedy satire. It will be nublislied bv the editorial staff of Columns, Washington’s student opinion magazines. EE BAZAR NEXT WEEK Featuring everything in the line of novelties from powder puffs to luncheon sets, besides candy, cakes, cookies and other foods, the Home Economics Bazaar is scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday, in the arcade of the Administration building. All the articles for the extraction of money from the members of the student body were made by the girls in the Home Economics department. The Home Economics club, a newly formed organization, has charge of the sale, aided by other members of he department. The purpose of the bazaar is to raise money to buy needed equipment and to furnish the office of the department. Besides the booths in the arcade of the new building, there will be a food booth at the Junior Dental College. “Students, open up your hearts and purses and receive a blessing in the form of good things made by our women,” is the advice given by the Home Economics girls. Spirit” at yesterday’s chapel, was given a wonderful ovation by the assemblage of students. In introducing him, Merle McGinnis, A. S. B. president, paid a high tribute to Dr. Healey, speaking of him reverently as the University’s “grand old man.” The president of Whittier College was unavoidably forced to cancel his engagement to speak to U. S. C. students. In keeping with the spirit of the intercollegiate assembly, McGinnis read a letter from the Whittier | prexy expressing regret at being unable to attend the assembly, and one from the Pomona College president, congratulating U. S. C. upon the spirit of the Trojans upon the occasion of the victory over Pomona. Dean Healey then began: “To the class of ’25 I doff my hat. Had I not been persuaded to take it off before beginning to speak, 1 would now lift my hat to those on the balcony. “Among the members of the class of ’22 may be found, according to the Trojan, the champion swimmer of U. S. C. Then, too, when our hopes regarding the big game were slowly dying, the Frosh team sent our spirits soaring when it won over the California freshman team. “Even during Dean Skeele's rendition of ‘Largo’ the freshman rain down silence. May they deal with us in the future as they never have in the past!” Passing on from the glories of the frosh, in which a gentle rebuke was hidden, Dr. Healey spoke about intercollegiate spirit. He dwelt upon the virtues of the six Southern California colleges, naming Pomona, Whittier, Redlands, California Institute of Technology and Occidental College. “The Southern California colleges are bound together in ties of closest friendship, which will grow stronger as time goes on. So may it ever be!” Applause at the conclusion of the He will not be hard to find either. He appears in pr.blic often. Whittier toasts several other good men, among them Buekmast^r. tnckte.

The setting was a large crowd of exceedingly peppy and enthusiastic individuals, known on the U. S.
