S. C. track coach, will be with us next Monday, January 23, according to word received yesterday from the mentor’s winter lair in Salem, Oregon. Elwood Pickens, well-known and well-liked student in the College of Liberal Arts, died suddenly at his home in Bakersfield, on January 10, following a period of convalescence from an appendicitis. He was buried last Wednesday at Bakersfield. He was home for the Christmas holidays when he became ill and was operated on, getting better rapidly, until it was decided to remove him from the hospital to his home. When he was being moved, however, he fainted and died almost immediately. According to the physician in charge, the fatal accident which occurred was one following the sewing up of the wound, and was unavoidable, coming in a very small percentage of convelscent cases. Pickens was a junior, completing his pre-legal course and majoring in sociology while at law. He was a member of Comitia Literary society, and active in its debate programs. He was also manager of the Y. M. C. A. Book Exchange. ^ BASKETBALL IS LOOKING AHEAD TO NEW TEMPLE Pavilion Expected to Be Finished for Opening of Casaba Season PLAY LA VERNE SOON Bleachers Being Started, While Playing Floor Will Be Installed Soon A pie, Meanwhile, the gang’s all here. All dolled up and no place to go. Fred Kelly, the Hon. assistant track coach, is busy taking the kinks out of Charles Hoise. This period of inactivity is wearing on the near-nude nerves of these B. V. D. dress reformers. The 1922 track season is still in its (infancy. One more month, and the hild will be a full-grown Saturday aft-rnoon in the bleachers. MYSTERY CHARLES Padlock was unlocked one afternoon, nd he appeared on the track the next jnoming. Since then he has remained ithin the bounds of mystery.

The first part of the evening was | )ent in listening to the very best of zz music, and so on. By nine-thirty •ery one began to feel acquainted and e upperclassmen who were lucky ough to get a bid to the freshie’s and affair had lost the look of faint pei iority which they assumed at the ginning of the affair to hide the easiness they felt when they first nd themselves with such an un-niliar crowd, fter an hour or two of the usual time, a program was staged. Miss tella Wardell gave pianologues. e Patchwork Quilt,” and ‘‘The lal Way.” liss Eunice Bird gave the reading, king Him Feel at Home.” fter these numbers, two prep stu-ts, Miss Imogene Grimes and Miss ba Nieto, favored the assembled hmen with a duet dance. Fresh-quartet then sang several of the est popular songs, ter the program, the freshmen eked after the usual manner of infants and their elders. The c was greatly appreciated. El Rodeo sales fell far short of conservative expectations last week, Lowell E. Jessen, manager, reports. Only 375 students signed up for the year book out of a student body of 2,300 in Liberal Arts. “Students were somewhat slow in getting the El Rodeo because they felt that they, like the Mexican residents near the volcanic mountain, Popocatapetal, should wait for some kind of a financial eruption to fill their ^pockets with coin,” he said. “Others of them were really pressed for money, but we found that these students were the staunchest supporters of the El Rodec. “Although the price of the year book has been Increased from $3.75 to S4.50, the added 75 cents has been put into the Malloy cover alone, which is much superior to that of last year, and finishes up better than leather. OTHERS CHARGE MORE “Other universities throughout the United States uniformly charge more for this year books than does U. S. C. The El Rodeo of last year, however, will compare quite favorably with any of them. “Advertising is what paid the largest part of last year’s expense, the total cost of the El Rodeo mounting to $11,300. Building contractors and supplies of materials for the new administration building furnished most of the advertising, and we have not these sources to draw from now. "The junior class is especially desirous of putting out the best annual the university has ever had, and insist 'ipon having it out by the 15th of May. n order to secure a better cover and several new features for the interior, it has been necessary to partially defray the added expense by increasing the cost of the book, making the total price per student $4.50, while the cost of cover and paper alone amounts to $3.74. The price for other university annuals of comparative size range in price from $5.50 to $10, averaging about $7.50. According to these figures. U. S. V. students are fortunate to get the El Rodeo at a total cost of $4.50. quintet cathedral, a casaba tem-a sphere bounding pavilion is being constructed out of real wood right on our own campus. And each day after a new bolt is driven and a couple more boards are tacked on the hazy dreams of the basketball fans changes into a reality. The pavillion is being built on the corner of the campus that faces exposition park. Already the rough floor has been laid in and a good part of the superstructure. Carpenters and finsh-ers are working at top speed in order to complete the building by an early date in February. That the building will be of no light and puny structure is shown by the fact that it takes four big husky men to carry some of the beams and heavy timbers. The finished floor under the stands and in the dressing rooms has been laid and it will be only a few days before a start will be made on the playing floor itself. The first set of bleachers has begun to take form; while provision for wiring, and shower accommodations is forging ahead rapidly. In fact, it will be only a question of time before the grass can be planted and the keys put in the door locks. Not many students realize that a building is being built on the campus, because of its location. Gwynn Wilson urges all the students to go over and bother the carpenters a while because it is better to know something about the activities on your ,own campus even if a few people have to be bored. Other basketball affairs are keeping up with the growth of the new temple. The team, under the competent coaching of “Gloomy Gus” is rounding into early season form. Since Pomona fell the “little casabas” have been looking around for more meat, because it takes plenty of good wholesome meat to make a basketball quintet. Therefore, tomorrow the team will take on La Verne basket shooters at the L. A. A. C., in a practice tilt. La Verne has been going good this season, and this match is likely to turn into a real battle. All girls’ pictures for the El Rodeo will be taken in tailored clothes this year. Owing to the many requests made by various students and to the fact that the pictures are being taken on the compus, it was decided that school clothes would be more representative of college life. Juniors will start having their pictures taken Thursday, Wednesday being reserved for all seniors who have not had theirs taken as yet SHINGTON-OREGON IN CASABA CONTEST 5a.cifle Tntercoll*«riatf» New* Service) IVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, 16.—The University of Wash-varsity basketball team will he University of Oregon team d of this week. SOCIOLOGISTS MEET The regular meeting of the Sociological Society, which was to have been held this week, has been postponed until February, in view of the meetings that have been addressed by Mr. J. Stitt Wilson and Dr. Henry Crane. The society has asked its members to ioin in helping make the meetings by Drs. Crane a success. The next meeting of the Sociological Society will be held February 8. Miss ^^,fh Simpson, a leading social worker of Los Angeles, will speak upon her experiences at the Los Angeles City Tail, where she has been in charge of the educational work. Her special topic will be “The Anti-Social Conduct of Adult Women.” ENTIRE FOOTBALL SQUAD AND COACHES FETED BULL PEN INN SCENE OF HILARIOUS MERRIMENT AND TWO IMPORTANT ELECTIONS TO ALL FOOTBALL MEN; HEN-DERSON SPEAKS TO NOTABLE BODY FRATERNITIES AT O. A. C. IN DEBATE CONTEST FOR CUP (Bv Pacific Intercollegiate Press Assn.) OREGON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE, Jan. 16.—Five interfraternity teams will meet to debate the question, “Resolved. That strikes in public utilities should be published by Congress, constitutionality conceded.” A debating cup will be awarded to the fraternity winning in these debates. Eating steaks from wooden plates—that’s what they did! And that was only one of the many things which occurred last Thursday night, when the football squad, coaching staff, newspaper men and friends of the past season gathered at Ye Bull Pen Inn for the annual football banquet. The election of captain was the most important event of the evening, with the selection of the winner of the Davis-Teschke medal a close second. Leo “Babe” Calland was selected as captain for the coming year, while Orrie Hester was chosen as the player most deserving of the Davis-Teschke honor. Calland plays in the center of the line, and appeared to be the most likely candidate for the honor. He was elected on the first ballot. Hester played in the same territory, at a guard position. While the work of the lineman is not so apparent to the spectator, the other members of the team, especially those who pack the ball, realize the value of a man who opens a hole when the hole is called, who plugs the hole when the opposition desires passage, w h o gets under every play and fights every minute, and gets no reward in the form of press notice, hero worship, and other recognition which is the natural lot of the men whose every movement is discernable to the onlooker. But fellow teammates realize those who are deserving, and the choice of two linemen for the two highest honors, proves the worth of the men selected. No one knows the merit of a player better than does his teammates. The honor bestowed upon Orrie Hester was started many years ago by Tommy Davis and Fred Teschke, for the purpose of giving some sort of recognition to the most deserving man on the team, (Continued on Page 3) TENNIS EXPERTS TOO MUCH FOR FAST “SAGEHENS” Welsh and Greene Electrify Opponents With Unusual Pre-Season Playing With the memory of a hotly contested engagement and defeat still lingering in their minds four members of the U. S. C. Tennis squad completely outguessed and outplayed Pomona’s court team on the Pomona College courts Saturday afternoon, Jan. 12. The final score was 6 to 2 in favor of the Trojans. Stanton Welsh and Paul Greene furnished the best exhibition of modern tennis that afternoon, when they successfully and masterfully won the first doubles honors from Rager and Johnson, Pomona’s best bets in the feature match of the day. The score was 7-5, 4-6, 6-0. In the second doubles match Skleners and Williamson, the only new men on the team, fell before Norton and Robinson of Pomona, only after a fierce battle, the score being 5 7, 6 4, 6-3. DARKNESS STOPS SINGLES Although none of the singles matches were entirely finished because of darkness, they were all conceded to the Trojan racquet wielders, due to the good showing made in the opening sets of each match. Wilsby playing first man, proved too much for Rager, 6-3; Greene squelched Johnson, 6-2, 3-1; Skleners proved a shade better than Norton, 5-7, 6-1, 2-0, and Williamson beat Bobinson, 6-3, 6-2. IMPROVEMENT SEEN Much improvement was noted in the playing of Welsh and Greene, particularly. The former’s drives and volleying was beyond reproach, while Greene’s serve and drive was playing him in good stead. As Pomona is conceded to have a strong court team this year, this victorious practice match is a good indicator for the quality of this year’s tennis team from U. S. C. I CLAIM NEW TWINS Robert and Marianne McClean are the names of the twins born during the holidays to Professor and Mrs. H. J. McClean. These are the only twins represented in the families of the members of the faculty.
