That song is “I Can’t Forget," by Edgar Hansen, who wrote both the words and the music. It was introduced early in the first act of the show, and played several times during the performance: the result was that the audience in true musical comedy fashion as they left the auditorium were whistling, singing or crooning “I Can’t Forget.” “Campus Frolics,” a comedy with*--------------- music—the book was written by Al Wesson, the music and lyrics were written by Edgar Hansen and Al Wesson—is the one new‘thing under the sur. at U. S. C. The performance on last Thursday night broke the ice, as it were, in showing that there was enough local originality and initiative to make an all-U. S. C. production a ( popular success. For “Campus Frolics" not only broke the ice but it caused a large audience to warm with enthusiasm and enjoy and applaud its interesting campus gossip, its fresh humor, (CONTINUED ON PAGE 2) Standings of Southern California Debate League Give Lead to the Locals Opening the season with two clean cut victories over Pomona and Whittier.

Mr. Leonard Thomas, president of the student body, and Mark Harron, United States district attorney, who has taken an active interest in the Law school. There is a rivalry among tbe different colleges as to which shall get tiie highest quota. The U. S. C. Law school is one of the best in the United States, and is upholding its reputation by the enthusiastic way in which the campaign is being launched. The work has begur. in such a systematic and interested way that the campaign is certain to be successful. Paderewski To Be Honor Guest Of U. S. C.

S. C. brought down another world’s record for her museum of athletic supremacy last Saturday afternoon in the A. A. U. Relay Carnival at Occidental, when her eight-man relay team lowered the old wcrld mark of 3 06 for the mile by seven seconds. In establishing the new mark of 2:58 2-5 for the eight-man one-mile relay, the brilliant—and almost phenomenal—sprinting of Otto Anderson, Yale Martz and Charley Paddock easily marks the high spot of this greatest relay meet in Southern California. As though this were net enough, two other performances of quite equal brilliance were pulled off when the Trojan four-man one-mile relay team beat their own Pacific * -7;-—7— Coast record for that event by cir-clkigcling the oval in 3:21 2-5.

C. easily took the meet with 38 points to her credit, the nearest opponent. Occidental, hanging up but 17 markers, with Pomona following with 14. Pasadena High was fourth with 12. Although the V. S. C. runners were not pressed, the eight-man one-mile event, in which the record was made, was a most sensational affair. At the pop of life gun Otto Anderson, start-off man. leaped ahead a few feet, and held liis distance until he recalled tin-first turn in the oval; then with a hurst of speed that seemed almost phenomenal he shot forward and led the group by 2"> yards when he finally released the baton to Starry. Otto's time was flat. Starry stepped his 22<> in hut a second less. Lowe made it in 22 l-o, Hughes in 22 1-5, Shaw in 22 Hat, Johnson in 22 2-5. .Mart/, in 21 3-5. and Paddock in 21 4 5.

After next week the world at large will know exactly to what extent we are behind our Alma Mater. The success of the student campaign for enowment funds wil! tell the story. U. S. C. must have money in order to remedy present unsatisfactory conditions at the University and to make possible the future growth of the institution. Unless every student contributes the University will not be able to boast that her student body is supporting her 100 per cent. When U. S. C. asks the public for $10,000,000, the support of the students in the campus campaign will be the most forceful argument in urging the business men to contribute. Ready cash will not be necessary. Students are expected to sign pledges for contributions to be paid within the next four years. Students at Ohio State University recently made an average pledge of eighty-two dollars for the support of their Alma Mater. This is not such a large sum when one considers the length of time allowed for oayment. Certainly no one should make a pledge for less than ten dollars.
