Spring Vacation Is Chance To Catch Ltp tt South California <JAN See Dent Minstrel Show This Evening Vol. XV Los Angeles, California, Friday, April 11, 1924 Number 74 ANNUAL DENTAL MINSTREL SHOW IN AUDITORIUM TONIGHT Trojan Debaters Defeat Utah In Chapel Contest ODONTO CLUB PRODUCTION LEWIS, BRENNAN . „ TENTATIVE CAST CHOSEN FOR j| Willard Shurr And II INCLUDES MANY FEATURES REPRESENT S.C. United States and World Court is Question in Dispute FOUR TO 1 DECISION Harry Silke Presides at First Student Assembly Debate Ned Lewis and Raymond Brennan defending the affirmative side of the question, ‘‘Resolved that the United States should enter the World Court under the Harding-Hughes reservations,' added another victory to U. S. C.'s debating landslide by defeating a team from the University of Utah yesterday morning in Bovard Auditorium, by a four to one vote. The Utah team composed of Conway Stratfor'd and Scott Partridge made a noble effort to convince the judges that the United States should not enter the world court but the arguments which Lewis and Brennan presented were much more effective. l^ewis and Brennan used as their defense that a World Court would promote harmony between the different nations of the world. The affirmative maintained that the court is practical, that it is endorsed by many of the leading organizations and is recommended by numerous of the leading statesmen of the United States. Lewis, in answer to the negative’s demand for an answer to the question as where the World Court is different from the Hague Arbitration Tribunal, stated that the World Court is an outgrowth of the Hague Court. He agreed with the negative that the Hague Court answered its purpose, at that time, but now the World Court was an outgrowth of the Hague Court to answer the problem of today. The negative endeavored to tear down the affirmative's defense by stating that public opinion was not in favor of the World Court. One of the Utah speakers read a clipping in which Hiram Johnson, of California opposed the World Court. In answer to this Lewis stated. “If the United States depended upon Hiram Johnson to run this country, I am afraid we would not get very far." He was heartily applauded by the audience. Another point which was strongly presented by the negative was the fact that the United States could "ise the World Court without (becoming a member. Five ballots were turned in with the judges list of the speakers arranged in order their presentation with the speaker which they thought was best leading the list and in order of their importance. The bol-lots read as follows, first, Lewis,' Partridge, Brennan. Stratford; second,. Stratford. l^ewis. Partridge, Brennan; third. l^ewis, Stratford, Brennan. Partridge; fourth, Lewis, Partridge. Brennan. Stratford; fifth. Lewis, Stratford, Brennan, Partridge. It is interesting to note that in four out of five ballots, Lewis of U. S. C. was considered by the judges to be the best speaker. On the fifth ballot he was ranked second. Brennan kept a consistent third, with one exception. Harry Silke, president of the U. S. C. student body presided. The judges were Miss Veda Walker. H. B. Wright. W. D. Root, Glen Mc-Wiliams. and W. P. Newton. Speeches were thirteen minutes in length. TENTATIVE CAST CHOSEN FOR ANNUAL JUNIOR CLASS PLAY Gertrude Street, Grady Setzler and Elton Hankins Are Chosen as Leads in “Boomerang;” First Rehearsal Held Yesterday Afternoon "Selecting a cast and presenting a play may go hand in hand,” sighed Miss Hubbard, “but with the selection of a cast the job is more than half complete.” Now the fun begins! With a tentative cast rehearsals for the Boomerang to be the Junior Class Production of 1924, will begin immediately after Spring vacation when all lines shall have been learned. Although there was a fairly large turnout of promising players, many difficulties were encountered in selecting suitable characters for the different types included in the play. There is still one part which is unfilled, and as yet the cast as announced is only tentative. A reading rehearsal was held yesterday afternoon under the direction of Miss Hubbard. Riinnlr I’alrarr - "The Show Shop,' Howard Bridegroom which is to be given in Bovard Auditorium at chape! time. April 2. (for the purpose of purchasing equipment for the auditorium stage, is like many plays in that it has a triangle as the main plot. However, this triangle is composed ot two lovers and the girl’s mother. The mother will not a!lowr her daughter to marry until she has made a hit in a Broadway production. The young man takes a part in the show in order to make the play a fizzle, but he gets into difficulties he had not anticipated. The love plot is carried by Bonnie Palmer and Howard Bridegroom. Ruth Seaver plays the “mother role.” Tickets, in the form of tags, go on sale after spring vacation at 25 cents each. Manager Leo Anderson announces. This is the first time the administration has backed a student production at U. S. C. and it is hoped the auditorium will be packed. Ten o’clock classes will be dismissed and (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) Those who have been selected are well adapted to their respective parts, and have played in important roles of other plays. Grady Setzler takes a natural part in the broad comedy portrayal of Gerald the young doctor and some exceptional ability is promised. Eiton Hankins becomes the love sick patient and with the doctor will star opposite Gertrude Street, the Doctor's nurse and incidentally the “Boomerang” in the play. Mr. Hank- ; ins is well known to those who have witnessed the Alumni production of Manual Arts High where he recently took the lead in “Come Out of the Kitchen.” He also played in Potash and Perlmutter last year. Miss Street. Miss Humiston and Miss Lang-don are all well known through the School of Speech. The part of Preston DeWitt which is yet open, is one of the most difficult of the play. It is that of a young slicker, with women as his hobby, refined and polite in every respect, but still a type which the audience learns to hate. Those who are responsible for the play are congratulating themselves upon their success in obtaining the Boomerang which has been very successful whenever produced. Tt was first produced in New York, by David Belasco, and after a long run in the large Eastern cities was carried over the entire uountrv. It was also produced here by the Morosco Players, about two years ago. The tentative cast as announced by Miss Hubbard is as follows: Dr. Gerald Sumner----Grady Setzler Budd Woodbridge......Elton Hankins Preston DeWitt............Undecided Emile................Edwin Anderson Hartley ..... .........Willard Shurr Mr. Stone...........Edwin Anderson Virginia Gelva....... Gertrude Street Grace Tyler..........Helen Humiston Marion Sumner.........Martha Smith Gertrude Ludlow...........Miss Cecil Mrs. Creighton Woodbridge...... ...................Mary Langdon 10 REPLACEBOVARD FIELO Tennis and Basketball Courts To Be Added Later at Other End Willard Shurr And Helen Green To Lead Y.M.

A. nominating committee shows the following candidates for other offices: Mildred Davis and Olive Armstrong for vice-president; Doris Hooper, secretary, Ethel Oliver, treasurer; Maud Stavely, financial secretary, and Madge Irwin, undergraduate representative. Elections will be he'd Tuesday for those offices not already filled by unanimous vote. Stanley McKee was elected vice-president of the Y M. C.

Plans for the famous show are now being completed, and the musical comedy promises to be the biggest University production of the year. q — Horatio Cogswell, who is directing of the wrecking company, but a new and more respondent array of aihletic equipment rises on the noted spot. Two handball courts will immediately replace the space occupied by the south bleachers, at the western end. The bleachers are rapidly being demolished. The athletic office promises that several handball courts will be added, and probably tennis and basketball courts. Simultaneously, courts will be erected at the Dental Technic building, in keeping with the rapid and general University development. Several thousand dollars are being expended by the athletic department in rejuvenating Bovard Field. The field is now being used for all varieties of track and athletic training. Now with the Coliseum open to U. S. C. sports .Bovard Field will no more witness the frantic cheering of thousands, but will continue to be a living monument of the memorable four decades of U. S. C. hopes .trials and victories. The athletic office announces that handball practice will begin soon after vacation, and that every student should consider the courts their property, and take their daily dozen by engaging in the manly and engrossing sport. In tearing awray the bleachers, a regular Smithsonian Institute was uncovered. Football and track programs now yellow-, tell the story of the past. An occasional dime, chewing gum, pop bottles, notes, bunting and other antique debris were found. Opening Chorus Numbers to be Best Ever Given By Dents; Olio Includes Solos, Orchestra Numbers, Dancing, and Instrumental Acts By CLIFFORD LEES After weeks of preparation, the students of the College of Dentistry will present their annual minstrel show in Bovard Auditorium tonight. The pit orchestra will play the first number at 8:10, and the first act of the Olio begins at 8:15. After glancing over the program, and the noting of casual remarks, the show tonight promises to be the best ever presented by the Odonto club. Ray MacDonald of the School of Speech, who is managing the show states that local color will add interest to the show. He did not state what he meant by local color at a minstrel show, but he asserts that if any gags are pulled on some of the Fraternity brothers or Sorority sisters, the ‘:uainless pulling” method will be pulled so that the victim will have no need to blush. He also insinuated that laughing gas will be administered dur-o f ing the pulling of some of the J older jokes. A feature of the show will be the opening chorus. This chorus will present a number of popular hits such as “Remembering,” “I’m Goin’ South,” and “Linger Awhile.” Two solos will also be presented in the Circle program, while an octette and a quartette will be found on the circle program. The circle program will close with two selections MULE’S KICK WILL BE MOCK TRIAL SUBJECT Mock Initiation Ceremony Skull and Dagger Held After Vacation rehearsals" STARTED Tickets to Be Sold by Pledges For Event; Admission 15 Cents First practice on the Skull and Dagger Mock Trial was held yesterday afternoon. Harts were assigned to the sixteen pledges to the University | “y the enUre circle Honorary Fraternity Tuesday trojan knights meet Trojan Knights will meet in Harry Siike’s office at noon iodav. Arrangements are being completed whereby the University of California will give a course by radio from rhe College of Agriculture. The course the chorus, and Miss Florence Hubbard. director of the speaking parts, report favorable progress of the production. The chorus and speaking parts so far have been rehearsing separately, but commencing next week the entire cast is to work together. ilarry Hardin, manager of the production, made the following statement yesterday when interviewed on ‘‘The Spring Maid:” “We chose May 1, May Day. as the date for ‘The Spring Maid’ because of its appropriateness for the offering of such a show. It is a light and humorous comic opera and not the least bit cut and dried. And with the costly and efficient staging it is to be given it is certain to be the big all-University production of the year.” Marjorie Thomas, who had a leading part in the recent Extravaganza and who has appeared lately in several brilliant recitals, is to take the lead, playing the part of Bozena. the daughter of Nepomuk. According to Mr. Hardin, it is expected that Miss Thomas will do her finest work in the role of Bozena. Monroe Sharpless is to play the part of Prince Aladar, a frivolous personage, who is led a long and merry chase in the wooing of Boena. This part was formerly given to Howard Coy who was later forced to give up the role because of a business trip to New York. (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) COCOANUT GROVE OFFERS PRIZE FOR ADVERTISEMENT Another chance for students of the University of Southern California to try their hand at practical moneymaking, is being offered by the Cocoa-nut Grove at the Ambassador Hotel. Twenty-five dollars is being offered for the best four column, ten inch advertisement for the Trojan. Although a knowiedge of art is not needed, ideas for the art work are wanted in addition to the copy. Advertisements are to be handed into Kenneth Stonier at the business office of the Trojan* not later than Tuesday, April 22. Coolidge 84, Johnson 59, Lowden 52 and La Follette 25. Such is the present count for presidential possibilities in the mock Republican convention to be held here on May day. After the spring recess but twelve days remain until U. S. C. will know which of the candidates will receive the nomination or whether some dark horse will be trained and bridled and at the last moment win the delegates to its colors. Delegates, numbering in all 998, must be accounted for in reposts to the office of the general chairman before noon today. State chairmen who do not report will be asked to resign and new leaders will be appointed. If delegations have not been completed tentative lists may be sent to the History or Political Science offices. The present tally is not grounds for the speculation of the final outcome. AEl candidates hav<e, besides their known support strength divided throughout the delegations of many states and this following is impossible to record. No candidate except Coolidge has the support of a large section outside his own state. The president is assured of the New England electors. Johnson’s support comes from two states as far apart as Missouri and California. According to these first returns Johnson has not the control of the West that Coolidge has over the far East or that Lowden and La Follette have over the Mississippi Valley states. It is the opinion of many of the state chairmen and participants in (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) noon ,and the men started work immediately on the play. This mock trial is n annual affair at the University. The trial will be held in Bovard Auditorium at either the 11 o'clock period or at the noon of one day of the week following the spring: vacation. Tickets will be sold at 15 cents each by the pledges. It is hoped that more than three hundred tickets will be sold. The trial is to be held in Bovard Auditorium this year to accommodate a larger crowd. The same combination which put over ..he Extravaganza—Teet Carle, author, and Hank McCann, director— has charge of the mock trial. The story has to do with the quarrel between Boyle Deggs and Ham Neggs owing to the fact that Deggs’ mule kicked Neggs in the evening. Buck Oudermuelen takes the part of the stewed defendant. Johnny Hawkins is to play the part of the prosecutor. The job of the Judge will be given over to LeRoy Dawson, president of the College of Law Student Body. K. C. Mobarry will be the prosecuting attorney, while Okey King will defend Mr. Neggs. Henry, the general utility man, who is bailiff, janitor, sheriff, fire-chief Rnd clerk of the court, will be played b Floyd Reeves. The part of Hugo Home, the dumb-bell witness, wiil be portrayed by Hank McCann. Kenneth Stonier will be “Iona Home,” the huge wife of Hugo Home. The crux of the situation depends on her demonstration of how the mule kicked Neggs. A. Guy Frum, a hosiery salesman, will be played by Harry Holton, Ned (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) General Junior Assessment Planned For Annual Banquet Y. W. DELEGATE CHOSEN Representing the local organization of the Young Women’s Christian Association, Madge Irwin, elected undergraduate representative for the coming year, will leave for New York on the 25th of this month to attend the National Y. W. C- A. Convention. “In the first place,” said John Woods, president of the Junior class, w'hen interviewed about the Junior-Senior Banquet. “I want it understood that $16 a couple was a mistake. The tickets are only $8. But every member of the Junior class who does not attend the affair will be assessed two dollars.” This is essentially a feature of the Junior year and it is thought that is only fair that the w’hole class should be responsible for its financing. Ten Junior men will be chosen to sell the tickets and each will be responsible for a certain number of fraternity houses to which tickets must be sc’d. A similar committee of women will be formed to sell tickets to the co-eds cn the campus. Catharine Cattell, in charge of the entertainment has arranged the following toasts: “To the Seniors.” president of class of ’25. “The Coming Alumni,” H. J. Stonier, a musical number to be arranged by the College of Music, and a response by the president of the class of ’24. Other features are being arranged for later in the evening. It has always been a tradition that on this occasion a Junior man accompany a Senior woman and vice-versa. It is hoped that this will be carried out at this time, although it is not .a requirement. The Beverly Hills Hotel has been •secured for the evening and it is thought that at least twTo hundred Trojans will be there. Craig Nason, manager, has tr--:n working overtime to perfect plans for this affair and make it the outstanding feature of this semester’s social life. Fred Berlinger is in charge of the general arrangements, and all fhe committees promise that this will be unique among banquets. The Olio will follow the vaudeville variety. Syncopation, jazz, and novelty will feature the Olio. It will be more or less a program of individual talent. The double piano act, by a couple experts is going to surprise many, is rhe opinion of the officials, while the five saxophone act is going to make some of the syncopatin’ sisters sit up and take notice. The fourth number on the Olio program is entitled “Dancin' Fools.” The Dancin’ Fools will present a variety of dances, including the Sparkplug Dance, and the Apache Burlesque. Ray MacDonald will give a monologue. Although MacDonald is not a student at the Dental College, he will be on the prograta, since his services will add interest to the show. The program is as follows : 1—Opening Chorus ....................Circle a. Carry me back to old Vir-ginny. b. “California, here I am." c. “Sleep.” Solo part by Mel-lert, ’25. d. “Linger Awhile.” e. “Remembering.” f. “I'm sitting pretty in a pretty little city.” g. “Easy Melody.” h. “I’m goin’ South,” i. “The Stein song.” 2—Solo: “The world is waiting for the sunrise”......Clarke, ’24 3—Quartette: Sweet’ 25, Davis ’25, • Hutchinson ’25, Longley ’24. 4—End Song :“Mindin’ my business”............................Longley 24 5—Solo: “On the road to Mandalay”............___............Ward ’27 6—Octette: Clark ’24, Frame ’24, Walker '24, Coffin '26, Olson '25, Goodwin '27, Crandall '26, Anderson ’25. 7—Circle— a. “Winter Song.” b.
