Every Trojan student enjoyed seeing; and hearing every individual who spoke yesterdav I.ike Paderewski, they will. too. lor.p remember the solemnity of ih. c* re mony. Hearty applause from ihe student was a conclusive demonstration of their appreciation. TROJAN BASKETSHOOTERS will meet Arizona fer the final game of the series p'ayed on the local flcor this season. Student tickets will admit: Gwynn Wilson expects to see the stands overflowing with supporters ox the team. Since Les Turner has several in iuit'd proteges on his hands, th* Tro jan team will need more support than usual, lie insists that the team must he spurred on to victory through the efforts i>! the student hodv. MEMBERS OF THE FACULTY seem rather reticent in giving interviews to "Trojan" reporters about the question of whether or not the monthly examinations ought to replace the finals. Whether they fear that by favoring the monthly examinations they would be running counter to the will of the administration or not the “Trojan" does not know. Many members of the faculty have expressed themselves, in classes, as opposing the finals several have even gone so far as to allow their classes t<> go without holding finals. Hu; their backwardness in making any statements for publication leads the "Tro jan" to lndieve they fear to exercise the freedom of expression which is their natural hertiage.

No. don't care how much you know about 'em Wamp 11 tell you a whole lot more. Bren the innermost, carefully guarded secrets of Trojan co-eds will be revealed to the world with heartless veracity. As an eye-opener, a very unusual cover page, done in three colors, will grace the issue as a frontispiece. SHAKESPEARE OUTSHOOK Willie Live, the “beau-iest" Beau Brummel that ever snaked a college campus, has written a play and, in his own opinion, lias “out-shaked Shake speare." Around his play has been built a number that is full of high quality cartoons. peppy stories, original jokes, and poems that have Longfellow and Captain Billy beat a mile for real class. The third issue of “Wampus” is positively the best one yet," said Editor Wesson yesterday. “More money than usual has been spent upon it. though the price remains the same, but we feel that the stmles will like it enough to demand all the copies printed.” Press Club Meets To Outline Plans “Every newly-elected member of the Press Club must be present at the meeting to be held today at noon in the Trojan office. This is a very important meeting and there must not be any one absent." states the president, O. H. King. “All old members of organization are urged to attend the meeting, as plans for the initiation, a trip to the beach and a ‘pledge party’ are scheduled for discussion.” The top picture shows members of the committee from the Native Sens of the Golden West which presented an American and a California flag to U. S. C. yesterday, in company with Madame Tnmakie Miura, who sang several selections, and Maestro Alda Franchetti, who accompanied Madame Miura. Hillard E. Welch, Grand Trustee of the Native Sons and who pte-sented the flags, is holding tlte California flag. Belcw are President Rufus B. von KieinSmid and Ignace Jan Paderewski.

Foremost pianist, generous the old saying, and while hundreds of j helper of his country, and Premier of books have been written since then to prove the equality of man, the world still dearly loves to gaze on greatness. Those of the students and friends of the University who were able to get into Bovard Auditorium yesterday had a true feast of this sort, as they surveyed the notables on the stage. On the extreme left was Alice Gen- Poland, his name was the one that drew the great crowd that packed the assembly, while hundreds waited outside for a glimpse of him. On his left sai John Sobieski, son of the last king of Poland and direct descendant of the famous dynasty which ruled there for hundreds of years. One of his ancestors was the famous John Sobieski who led an armv of his eoun-tle. noted opera star and concert 1J trymen that held hack the Turks from Vienna in 1863—a time when the Mos- singer. who has appeared iu Bovard Auditorium before and whose popularity was attested by tbe prolonged applause which greeted her “Pleurez. mes yeux.” Next to Miss Gentle was Madame Miura. the .lapauese prima donna Her appearance charmed the audience, while her singing in three languages and varied roles demon st rated the versatility possessed by this greatest of Japanese singers. The next person not connected with the University was the great Pade lem wave threatened to engulf Europe. Another noted figure, who took no part in the ceremonies, was L. E. Behymer. impresario and high light in musical circles in Southern California. He is responsible for the appearance of many great musicians in Los An geles Mr. Behymer sat to the extreme right, in the front row.

Invitations are being sent to all captains, lieutenants and workers. The success of the campaign rests largely on the manner in which it is started, and for this very reason the banquet must go over. Of course, there will be no charge for the meal." SENIORS PUT OVER ONE SNAPPY SNAP The first of a series of Senior Snaps was given Wednesday evening at tin Alpha Chi Omega house, where a group of almost fifty members of the class of ’21! gathered together to get acquainted with their fellow classmates. School songs were sung as only those who have sung them for four 1 ?) long years know how, but it was when the McCluskey Jazzers arrived that the real fun began. REFRESHMENT SWELL Perhaps the biggest factor of the evening's success was the quantity and quality of the refreshments served.

C. students, according to Miss Brown of the University library. It will afford a real retreat near the University. where studies can be pursued without interruption. Approximately M0.000 volumes wil! be housed in the new library, according to !tliss Kennedy of the City Library, who is in charge of the ctiy's branch libraries. The present branch library 011 West Jefferson has only 0000 volumes, and is also poorly calculated for study and research. The new building will not cnlv give U. S. C. students access to 20.000 more volumes.- but will also afford a comfort able and convenient pine*1 for study. This library, in connection with the contemplated new University Libray wil: give students ready access to thousands of volumes that can only be had at present by going downtown. Construction of the library should be over in three or four months, according to Frank K. Lawler of tbe Willard & Brent Company.
