Yellow Dog” Is Out Thursday--Bring Cash ifcSouth California '<JAN Trojans Meet Cards In Stadium Saturday Vol. XV Los Angeles, California, Tuesday, March 25, 1924 Number 66 BARBER, BRENNAN TO TOUR YELLOW DOG TO NORTHWEST IN DEBATE TRIP Negative Team to Visit Ten Schools on Trip; Affirmative Team in Five Debates; to Take Trip East Debating every institution west of the Rockies. I". S. C.’s most formidable team in years will travel through the northwest to compete against the major institutions of that region Bill Barber and Bernard Brennan are to make up the team, which will leave the campus after the Wyoming contest on April 3. for a two week tour of the northern and middle western Universities. Already this year the Troj3n forensic artists have defeated both Stanford and California. Not satisfied with the championship of the state. U. S.

This northern swing will bring U. S. C. against some of the strongest teams of the west. Present contacts call for the visiting of ten schools by tbe negative team, including Washington State. University of Idaho. Brigham Young, and University of Nevada. Simultaneous with these debates, an affirmative team will engage three other state colleges at home and two more on a trip to Colorado and New Mexico. The question to be used in this next round of debates will be Resolved—that the United States shall join the World Court with the Harding - Hughes reservations. When this round is made U. S. C. will have completed the greatest debate schedule in the history of the University. The Wyoming debate will undoubtedly prove the greatest home contest. This team is traveling at the expense of individuals of their home state, which is unlike other schools which come here. The team itself is composed, according to re- ff No Trojan Thursday as Staff Refuses to be Mixed Up In Scandal OUI BY FOUNDER’S DAY Mario C1 amlee to be Special Guest, Alumnus and Noted Tenor CAP, GOWNS TO APPEAR Celebration Marks Forty-Third Anniversary in History of U.

This debate will be the first and only debate the negative team will have before leaving for the north. Coach Nichols has said “never before has a stronger combination been chosen to represent a University as Barber and Brennan." Bill Barber is a four year man on the squad and a law student. He is conceded to be the best opening speaker of any college on the coast and a dangerous man for any opponent. His team mate Bernard Brennan has (CONTINUED ON PAGE FOUR) CLEE CLUB PRESENIS U. S. C. Singers Are to be Hon. ored at Hotel Maryland April 5th IS FORMAL D1NNER-BALL Trojan Musicians to Get Part of Proceeds; To be U. S. C. Night What promises to be the big social event of the season is the formal dinner-dance to be given in honor of the IT. S. C. Gee dub at the Hotel Maryland in Pasadena on Saturday night, Aprii F»T.h. Many prominent per-" sons in Southern California have been invited to attend. The Glee Club has been booked by the management of the Mar viand and it is to present a program during the course of the dinner. The affair Is to be strictly a 1’. S. C. event, being given for the faculty, alumni, students and their friends. However, it is expected that many prominent outsiders will attend Among tfee guests will be Dr. and Mrs. Rufus B. Yen KieinSmid. Mayor Cryer of Los Angeles, the mayor of Pasadena: W. A. Clarke, Jr., founder of the Philharmonic Orchestra; E. L. Doheny. president of the U. S. C. Alumni Association, and Mark Har-ron. president of Law Alumni. Invitations to the dinner-dance have been limited to two hundred and will be $2.50 a plate. They may be obtained by applying to the College of Music. The club received a percentage from the tickets sold. Friday night the Glee Club is to rn^ke an appearanace a,t the Sawtelle •Tunior High School. This concert has been booked by F. T. Chamberlain, principal of the high school. Sunday evening the singers presented t-heir first sacred concert of the year at the First Baptist Church. This prorram. according to Harry Hardin, w as successful and pleased tbe members of the church. thirty thousand. The observance Thursday will contain several new features, among them, the presence as a special guest of the University, Mario Chamlee, star tenor of the Metropolitan Opera Company, and an alumnus of U. S. C. The oflkial ‘Jeom'ng-out” day* of Senior Caps and Gowns will begin also at eight o’clock Thursday morning. April 3. This is another annual U. S. C. tradition which is to feature every Thursday’s chapel. According to “Chatter” Balcolm. chairman of the Senior Cap and Gown Committee, all Seniors are urgently requested to order the gowns at the associated store today. Only about one hundred orders have been placed so far, ?.nd Miss Balcolm requests that concentrated speed be shown. On Tounders Day. the entire faculty appear on the rostrum garbed in collegiate black, and appropriate talks and reminiscences of old U. S. C. are given. Taxes have been paid on the “Yellow Dog," and a permit has been secured to let him run loose Thursday. The Trojan refuses to be mixed up in any scandal so will not appear Thursday. Ned Lewis is in charge of the pooch and the Sigma Sigma pledges are responsible for the scandal which wi 1 ap pear in it. The Yellow Dog resembles the Razz edition of the Trojan, in some respects, but is far more daring in its reproduction of campus scandals. These pledges ha’-e had a chance to get the low-down ou most of the campus scandals, and will picture them in a truthful manner. It is rumored that a great number of fees have been sent to the editor urging him to forget to print some of the scandals, but they have been returned. Some of the frats and sororities have tried to buy up the entire edition but their efforts were fruitless, as the editor is firm in his stand, that the “truth must out.' Students who want to get shocked may do so at the price of Qfteon cents, which is considered a nominal price for the entire set of start iug revelations. A ‘True Confessions’ magazine would cost more than tha and yet would not hold a candle to some of the things this pup has to portray. As all efforts to muzzle the cur have been fruitless, those who have guilty consciences must prepare for the public exposures, Thursday morning. Unique Program To Be Feature Friday At Commerce Hop Unique programs in the form of ’ailroad tickets are now on sale in he College of Commerce office for thc Commerce dance next Friday night. According to Professor Thurston H. Loss they are the cleverest pieces of printed material that have appeared on the Campus this ye.ir, and in saying this Prof. Ross takes into consid eration the Wampus and the Trojan Razz Sheet. Sonny and Haines will appear with their orchestra to furnish the noisy part of the Commerce Dance. This organization is comparatively new to campus activities. The oallroom of the Egan Dramatic School will be the scene of the dance This also is new to most U. S. C. students. Tickets for the Commerce Dance cosf $1.50 and are open to anyone in the University.

April 26th. The evening's entertainment will consist of dancing, Mah Jongg and bridge. Tickets will be on sale soon on the campus at $1. The scholarship fund is used as a loan, to enable women to complete their college career when such aid is needed. DE ATTEND CON ES MCE Social Organization of Associated Women Students Hosts to Colleges of Southland CLEVER PROGRAM HELD Exchange Booth to be Feature of Social Events; No Dates Allowed CAMERAS TO CLICK ON SNAP.SHOT DAY Bachelors to Sponsor Drive for El Rodeo Feature Pictures Members of the Wampus Bachelor Club are anticipating great success in staging “Lj Rodeo /Snapshot Day” next Thursday. Reasons for this optimism are two-fold, first, the Bachelors are behind the day, and second, the Yellow Dog appears at the same time that the Bachelors and others will appear with their cameras. ‘ Every person on the campus can do the El Rodeo a real service by bringing a kodak to school on Thursday,” said Bachelor Challen Landers yesterday. “Bud” is chairman of the Bachelor Committee which is backing Snapshot Day. He suggests that the pictures be closeups and that they have an appeal of some sort to them. Because of the appearance of the Yellow Dog on Thursday, many good chances ought to be found to catch students, profs and others in characteristic and incongruous positions.

S. officers for tiie coming year will be held Thursday during chapel hour. Because of the Western Conference to be he'd in Arizona on April 1ft. 11 and VI at which now officers from all Associated Women's Student Bodies are expected to be present, nominations are being held at this early date. Much excitement centers annually about these elections and the announcement of coming nominations is expected to create much excitement among local women politicians. One hundred delegates and eight Deans of Women attended the fourth annual conference of inter-collegiate women the past week-end when they were the guests of the local organization of Associated Women Students. Arriving with the train Friday after, noon the visitors were welcomed at a delightfully informal dinner followed by a college-stunt program in the University parlors. Dean Wescott of Santa Barbara, founder of the conference and permanent sponsor, gave the opening address of the conference at the business session Saturday. Questions of vital importance in A. W. S. activity, the point system, A. VV. S. finances, honor societies, and women's athletics were brought up by various college representatives and discussed in open forum. A refreshing break in the day's business came at noon when a dainty box luncheon was enjoyed at Exposition Park. Perfectly appointed, the formal banquet at the University Club Saturday evening was attended by one hundred and thirty-five college enthusiasts. Rain on Sunday prevented the auto tour. Most prominent in the Conference sessions were U. C. L. A., with thirty delegates, Santa Barbara with twenty delegates and San Diego with ten KNIGHT MEETING After struggling side by side toward a common cause for over three and a half years, the Senior class will meet socially tomorrow night for the first of the traditional “Senior Snaps.” These “Snaps” are given annually by the Senior class in order for the mem. bers to meet one another socially. This year, seven dances will be given at periods about two weeks apart. The first is scheduled by the committee in charge for tomorrow night at the Holton Arms Apartments from seven till nine. Under the managements of the committee, headed by Miss Marjorie McComber, special unique features have been arranged for, among which is an exchange booth where strangers will be introduced and couples paired off. Another advantage of this exchange booth is the ease with which a undesirable partner may be traded off for a desirable one. Dates, according to the committee, are also away out of line. “Of course,” said Miss McComber “if the fair sex take advantage of Leap year and p’.an to entice a member of th eopposite sex io guard them on the way home, all well and good. But no dates before hand.” The committee has endeavored to keep charges down, the admis- SLOPPY TRACKMEET IN NORTH Trojans Take Early Lead Over Bears but Jinx Proves Hard to Discard and U. S. C.

Cuts are to be stressed next time, both in quality and number. There are to be some half dozen more cuts !hi* tine, among: them some full paep drawings. Another improvement will be the sion to be only twenty-five /cents.

The purpose all those who will have any extra space in their cars to inform him. As dates are not in style it will be inconvenient for many of the girls to attend unless transportation is provided, says Lynn. If those girls who want a ride will see Mr. Robb or any one of the class officers an auto will be arranged to call for them. The Holton Arms Apartment is located at 405 West Adams Street. The music for the “Snaps” have been furnished gratis by the '“Music Box.” Law, Dental. Liberal Arts and all other campus college Seniors are urged to attend. MEETING CALLED BY FEDERAL MEN Copies of Recent Resolutions to be Mailed to AU Civic and Fraternal Orders Federal Board students will hold an important meeting today at 12 o’clock in Room 7, of the Journalism Buil*1 ing. President Grayson requests all Federal Board men to be present as the resolution drawn up by the recently appointed committee are to be discussed. The plan is to send a copy of the resolutions to all fraternal, civic and woman's organizations tn an effort to secure their support in protesting the recent Government Board ruling. Thus far the local board students are the first to start action against the ruling and th y hope to tave national co-operation. of this is to render the stories more delectable, as well as intelligible, to the readers. The cost of the publication has been very closely estimated by the end that the advertising space may be cut down to make room for the “literary endeavor.” Only the advertising necessary to meet the actual cost of the book has been solicited. Acording to Okey, the cover is going to be a 'knockout,” a real -\pril Fool's cover. Mildred Bryant, who designed the last Wooden Horse cover, is the artist. The reading matter is to be distinctive by the presence of a larger percentage of short stories and jokes. A dozen contributors are working with the editor to make lhe next copy a success. Willie Live will have a discourse on baseball in this issue. The M. M. (Mirth Magazine) will £0 on sale at 10:50 Tuesday morning. April 1. As only the usual number of Wampi will be printed, those who have been obliged to ’go without the funny cat in the past are expected to rush the sales force early. NO TROJAN THURSDAY No “Trojan” will be issued Thursday, the regular edition having been turned over to the sigma Sigma pledges for the annual “Yellow Dog.” The Sport page was discontinued today because of large amount ot* advertising.

These were the breaks that gave the Bears the meet and added to these must be the fact that Bud Houser was a sick man and Thurmond Clarke was sojourning on a honeymoon. It is not hard to see that the Trojan track squad is a superior outfit and should have won the meet. Bud Houser's brave attempt to serve his alma mater is a thing worthy of much commendation. Houser got up out of a sick bed and went north knowing that he would be defeated but thinking that perhaps what few digits he might be able to grab at a sacrifice to his health would help U. S. C. Bud annexed a second and a third in events that he could have won easily had he been in condition. There were no startling performances as the track was literally a sea of mud. Norman Anderson, Grumbles and Wilson also won first places for the Trojan team and Ross tied for first in the high jump. Elwood contributed another fine run in the 2 mile when he took second (CONTINUED ON PAGE THREE) SECTIONAL LIKES WILL Illinois Declares Allegiance to Lowden; Kansas Has Two Candidates NEW ENGLAND-COOLIDGE Pennsylvania and New York to Decide; Neither Has a Candidate By CAROLINE McCLELLAN That the delegates from the states of the Middle West will be able to swing the mock political convention for a candidate from that section was the announcement received from the office of the general chairman, recently. To date all of the Coolidge support has come from the New England States and the strength of Johnson is calculated to come from the far West. Frank O. I.owden, of Illinois, is to have the solid support of the prairie state with its fifty-two votes. It is not known whether the Illinoisans can rally Indiana, Michigan, Iowa and per. haps Wisconsin *o the standard of Lowden. their favorite son. Should these states stand together their total votes would record 152.

LA TERTULIA MEETS There will be a very important business meeting of La Tertulia tomorrow noon, Wednesday, at 12:30 in room 351. All members are urged to be present. A newcomer to U. S. C. was recently heard to remark upon the number of attractive members of the fair sex scurrying or wandering about the campus. Blonde, brunette, tall, short, slim, otherwise and all in all, beautiful. It is not the Erst time such a statement has been made, and judging by the number of frat pins at large there is a great majority of masculine Trojans to back this view. What, then, could be more logical, or more to be desired than a real, true honest-to-goodness contest to de termine, at least as near as is possible for mere man to do so, the possession of the most pleasing visage There are contests of every other variety and it is agreed that the “best man wins.’ This time the honors go to the opposite sex but with the same sentiments of fairness and squareness. An envoy sent to the University of California to see for himself what grounds the college had for their boast of possessing the handsomest women students reports to Kenneth Crist that the number was limited. “Such a vote added to the scattered and it is the honest opinion of both I vote for Johnson and other minor eon-men that “U.

The chosen candidate would hare the support of Arkansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma ac-s^iding to certain state chairmen who l ave been following the political situation at U. S. C. closely.
