SONG BOOK SOON TO BE OFF PRESS SKULL AND DAGGER PLEDGES TWENTY CAMPUS CELEBRITIES Men Are Awarded Membership in All-University Honor Fraternity for Merit; All Branches of Student Activities Are Represented Twenty men were pledged to Skull and Dagger senior honorary fraternity, at ceremonies held in assembly, yesterday. Of this number, four were members of the faculty. “Receiving an invitation into Skull and Dagger is the greatest honor that can be conferred upon a student or professor in this University,” said Leo Calland, president of this organization, in awarding the pledge ribbons. “Upper classmen who have distinguished themselves during the school year, and who the members feel have upheld the best traditions of this institutions, are voted to -------- —-—Oreceive invitations to membership.” President Calland expressed pleas- George Somners the “Book of Job” i torium, February 22. who appears in in Bovard Audi- the OLd Colln^ jn order 1^0 give everyone an opportunity.

Arrangements should also be completed for group pictures. Practically every organization has signed up but those remain ng few are urged to sign up for space immediately. The book is rapidly taking a tangible form and enough space must be reserved for those who have neglected to see Harry Holton in his office in the Journal sm Building. Announcement of the first Spring patgeant to be presented by the LT. S. C. physical education department was made yesterday by Miss Dorothy Doty, instructor in dancing in the women's physical education department. Miss Doty, who is a pupil of Norma Gould, has planned a dance fete of great proportions and will be busy during the coming months preparing the pageant for presentation at U. S. C. This is the first time U. S. C. has attempted such an event and. with the increased facilities and opportunities which are now supplied by the Physical Education department for such work, the affair should prove extremely popular. Miss Doty, who will have full charge j of the production, came to U. S. C. last year to take charge of the dancing classes which were being offered in the woman's gymnasium. Under FROLICS SEAT SALE Seats for “Frolics of 1924,” Musical Extravaganza, which the Varsity Club is promoting, may be reserved today. The ticket window will oj?en at 9 o'clock and re-main open every day until the production. February 29. Those who have purchased tickets from Varsity letter men will have to have them exchanged for reserved seats. Indications point to a full house, as there will be over a hundred high school guests in addit on to Fodder for Extravaganza Wamp Is Due February 19 Fodder for Wanr>us, alleged comic magazine of the University of Southern California, must be turned in before February 19 if the issue is to appear on the extra day of this month according to Okey King, trainer of the funny cat. The number will be chiefly devoted to the Campus Frolics of *14 which will be given the evening of February 29. and will be called the Extravaganza Number. Mirthful inspiration for the oubturstC-------.- Commerce Club Holds Smoker and Tea Soon Many New Songs Appear in the New Edition of Old Trojan Book Next week the vest-pocket and vanity case edition of the U. S. C. Song Book will be on sale on the Trojan campus. There are many outstanding features about this book 1 but its greatest worth says Art Met-the editor, lies in the fact that it will always be on hand when occasion demands. The truth of the well worn state- Stuart Walker’s, famous drama, The Book of Job ,is to be the next presentation in the Artist Course offering. It will be given in Bovard Auditorium on Friday evening, February 22. The proceeds from the Artist Course are to go into the fund that is being raised to erect the much-needed woman's building. A play of this kind should not be thought of as one of oppressive solemnity for Bible students alone. “The Book of Job” is a stage-worthy drama, to be enjoyed by all persons capable of appreciating beauty and significant emotion as presented through the medium of the theatre. The lighting effects are particularly ingenious. The use of increasing and diminishing lighting effects replaces the usual curtain and heightens the figures clothed in biblical costum is. A ceiling halo in prismatic colors appeal’s when the Divine voice is heard, while lightning f.ashes and a continuous rumbling of the thunder proclaims the Divine presence. Tickets may be obtained now from Miss English in Mr. Stonier's office. A special rate of 75c has been madt for students. The regular prices are $1. and $1.50. “ The Show Shop Presented by Dramatic Fraternity Is ure in the h gh calibre of the men chosen, feeling that the University as a whole would approve the choice. 1 The Skull and Dagger trial, one of the high l’ghts of the campus year, will be held within the month Tho An appreciative audience witnessed trial is written, acted and produced the Lance and Lute production t>f by the pledges.

KNOLES TO SPEAK AT does not necessarily have to be obtained from the show, according to I Okey. New students and others who have enrolled for the first, second, third, fourth or fiftieth time w ill have j a chance to show what they can do in the humorous field, and are asked to turn in any material they think funny enough. The main requirements for the work is that it be funny and short. The shorter the stortes are. the more ! songs and yells. About ten of its fifteen or sixteen songs are “brand-new,” having been submitted for the Song Contest. No, the •'•avorites” are not left out of this new song book. as ‘‘Fight On,’" 4 Hail to Alma Mater” and the others will appear, but the sombre lifeless songs of the old song book have been buried many feet deep. Jessie Hooper and Art Metcalf were in charge of the publication. At a meeting of the officers of the Commerce Club Wednesday noon, definite plans for the activities of the Club were drawn up. The meeting was presided over by Lyman Johnson, president of the organiza^ tion.

Although no date has been set for the pageant, preliminary work will start at once. Miss Doty wishes to meet all women on the campus, whether or not they have had preparatory asthetic dancing, who are interested and wish to take part in the production, in her office at three o’clock today. This is the first year that a dance fete of such beauty and magnitude has been planned, but its ultimate success will establish it an an annual feature of the Woman's Department of Physical Education pro gram. In the past many have wondered why IT. S. C. did not present this type of entertainment, since the dancing classes have been making such progress and since the women have never before been called upon to appear before the public to advertise this feature in the Physical Education Department. At many other universities the spring dance pageant is one of the biggest events of the year, and it is HISTORY CELEBRATION Cheery “Hello” to Replace Icy Stare On S. C.

VICE-PRESIDENT ELECTED The tie for the office of vice-president in the recent Sophomore class elections was untangled yesterday morning in the recasting of votes Miss Genevieve Mulligan won over Miss Marjorie Rice, by a very close margin. Dr. Tully C. Knoles, President of the College of the Pacific, and former head of the Department of History in IT. S. C., quarterback on the Trojan Varsity of 1900, will address the History and Political Science Club at their first banquet of the new semester Wednesday night, at the Casa de Flores, Adams and Grand. Mr. Knoles was for fifteen years head of the Department of History here, was active in all University affairs, played on the Varsity baseball team, and is well known as a br lliant and entertaining speaker. Early last semester he spoke before a crowded and appreciative audience in Bovard Auditorium. Mr. Knoles left IT. S. C. in March, 1919, to accept the presidential duties of the College of the Pacific.
