Miss Violet says that special music and entertainments hare been provided for the large number of seniors expected to attend tonight. ENTERING TWO TEAMS in the A. A. U. contests is a novelty for U. S. C. Heretofore the Varsity and Frosh squads have been merged to give the Trojan force a united front for the stiff competition the other colleges of the South have offered. In entering the Frosh squad separately, however, Dean Cromwell expects to build up an individual tradition around the peagreeners, and give them credit for what they accomplish. PHYSICAL CONDITION Although the course may seem somewhat short to followers of the turf sport they have to take into consideration the physical condition of both animals. A peanut butter sandwich and a box of home-made cigars will be given the horse reaching the Y. M. (\ A. office first.

Several significant changes were made in the list, with new members topping both the fraternity and the sorority rolls. But of more interest to the student body is the fact that it took the registrar’s office about seventy-five days to get the list published. Why two months and a half are necessary to get out the ratings is hard to understand; and in the meantime the organizations are pondering their position on the list. in the distances if they combined: however, the Frosh will have some very stiff competition in These events. Saturday afternoon is bound to be chock-full of feature thrills, individual events, however the meet turns out. The 100 yd. classfr is bound to be a leading feature. There will be Yale Martz, Otto Anderson and Bert Starry (frosh) for U. S. C., Cliff Argue, the demon Oxy sprinter, and Redman of the L. A. A. C., besides others of almost equal ability on the stretch. The time ought to be not less than 10 flat, with such competition. Because of the uncovering in recent years of so much high-class material in the Southland for the 440. this event will he keenly watched Saturday. The 440 seems to ha\>e only come into its cents in his pocket and wanted to own of late, but is receiving now al-use same for a hasty trip up town, most as much attention as the 100.

Hugo is majoring in electrocution over in the school of speech. Anyway, he hears so much about this race between Spark Google and Major Opal which the ad club is putting on at lT. S.

From now un- HURDLE COMPETITION But tho races that the whole sports-wise south are looking to are the two hurdle events. Charley Daggs of Pomona and Otto Anderson of IT. S. C. are unquestionably the leading performers on the Pacific Coast in these events, and the shade of difference in the class of either is so small it cannot even be seen with a microscope. They will mix it Saturday, in company with a gang of other would-be hurdle heroes trailing at their heels. Per-1 haps the closest competition either will get is from that swell stepper, 1 Mi-xwell, Daggs’ team-mate. Otto stems to have Complimentary copy of the El Rodeo will he presented to Don Gillum for the ten best snapshots turned in for use in the annual, according to an announcement by Arthur Metcalfe, editor of the book. The award is made as the result of a contest which just closed to obtain intimate campus and frolic pictures of the students. “Mr. Gillum not only turned in the best, but the largest number of splendid pictures, almost all of which we were able to use,” said the editor in commenting upon the decision. “He deserves a great deal of credit for his work, both for his snaps and for his other pictures. A great many of our athletic pictures were taken by him, and some unusual views that we otherwise would no tliave been able to obtain. "There is, for instance, a picture of Charley Paddock, the U. S. C. speed king, in a race with Douglas Fairbanks and Charles Chaplin. We have some .other interesting pictures also that were given us by Gillum, and so there I is no doubt but that he deserves the hook. Several other good collections of snaps were turned in. however, among which that of Margaret Edgin should be mentioned. We were able to use many of the pictures that others . gave us, and because of the co-operation of these students the snapshot j pages should be very interesting to all of the students on the campus. “Of course, since Dental and Law are having their own special sections in the book they will have their own pages of snaps which ‘they have collected. In the main part we have in eluded a page of Pharmacy snaps, and the Women’s Athletic Association has a special page. Then there are pic-at the houses, on hikes Cardinal and Gold debaters. “Bill” j Barber and Roland Maxwell, uphold-I ing the affirmative side of the question, “Resolved, That the United States j - tiould adopt a Cabinet Parliamentary form of government,’’ defeated Wentz \ and Harter, negative debaters, to the | tune of a two-to-one decision, Wentz and Harter were sent with the highest • hopes from the Brigham Young Uni-: versity of Utah. This debate was the last of the season, and proved to be one of the best and hardest-fought verbal battles of the year. Roland Maxwell fought his la^t verbal conflict for tlie University of Southern California. The loss of this versatile debater, together with wright and Rrennan. will be heavily f*dt by the Trojan team r.ext year. Dr. Malcom acted as chairman. The judges were Judge Leslie R. Hewitt, .Judge of the Superior Court; Irving J. Mitchell of ?he Guaranty,Trust and Savings Bank, and Harry S. Harper, a well-known Los Angeles attorney. Wentz and Harter of Utah proved to be. exceptional debaters. They built up in their constructive speeches cases which seemed invincible to the audience of three hundred. Both men possessed good platform work, splendid delivery, well organized material, and score of business firms, who will offer the very latest of their wares. Over $50,000 worth of merchandise h.is been crowded into the “YM." and with the pleasant odor of sweet-scented flowers contributed by down town florists, ind the strains of various campus orchestras, will mingle Ihe aroma of delicious doughnuts and other confections from the firm of Jevne and other contributors. From the miniature reproduction of a gas plant, espe cially constructed by the Southern California Gas Company, and located on the outside of the “Y,” to the remotest corners of the building interesting and educational exhibits will greet the visitor. An additional incentive to the student’s review at the display will be the tempting food, which the exhibitors promise will be served gratis. Today’s exhibit is sponsored by the Advertising Club of C. S. C„ and is the culmination of the efforts of Norman McKay, president of this student body, Don Scott, K. E. Lewis and others to express to the advertisers in student body publications that the U. of S. C*.

Following general announcements, | the meeting yesterday was given over to Bishop McConnell, who discussed j* the subject of “Social lamigalion.” His address, enlivened by various interesting experiences, stories, and anec- ! dotes, was at the same time both inspiring and entertaining. TROJANS STOLEN All the Trojans that were placed in their customary places yesterday were stolen. It was necessary for the Trojan management to have two thousand extra copies printed to replace those taken. According to those in charge of publications, this joke or misguided sense of humor would have proved expensive to the Trojan had it not been possible to have the extra copies printed. An edition of the Trojan costs about $125 and without circulation it would have been impossible to collect on the advertising carried. Thlis the theft of what may seem to be but a few hundred papers amounts to the loss of several hundred dollars, and should the miscreant's, for whom a search is being conducted, be located, there will be severe punishment meted out. NORMAN O. McKAY, Manager of Trojan. The He-Man Number” of Wampus to Expose Males Men of thc university, not to be outdone by the fairer sex, are to have a Wampus all their own, according to Al Wesson, editor-in-chief. The HE-Man Number,” which is scheduled to make its appearance on the campus tomorrow morning, is expected to rival “The FEMI-NINE-GENDER Number” in wit and novelty. The entire issue is devoted to a startling expose of the he-flappers and he-vamps of the university, * fillly submitting their points. Maxwell, leader of the team, realizing that the debate was to be his last lor the Sardinal and Gold, uncorked all the debating knowledge in his power. In the past. Maxwell has done excellent work for the Trojans, but in the presentation of his constructive speech and with a clear and convincing tone, put a climax on all of his debates. “Bill” Barber was one of the outstanding speakers of the evening. Barber is considered as one of the best forensic men on the coast, and held up his reputation well in last Monday's debate. “The debate of last Monday evening was one of the highest class. The LT. S. C. orators had a slight edge on the Utah men, but the debate proved to be no walkaway. Although the representatives of the Brigham Young University were splendid forensic artists. Maxwell and Barber should receive the most credit. All the speakers showed splendid knowledge of TENNIS MEN LEAVE FOR OJAI MATCHES To-dav Ed Berry and Joe Call, Trojan tennis demons, will set sail for Ojai, where they will compete in both the single and double matches. The tournament is scheduled to be run off from Thursday, the 19th, to Sunday, the 22nd. The meet at Ojai is the tennis classic of the west, and as such is always sure to excite a lot of interest. All the universities of !he west will be represented and some great net battles should result. In spite of the loss of Harold God-shal, the former Cardinal and Gold court satellite, the team has been going fine, and Berry, captain of the squad and playing as first man. has I nited States and English forms of been showing up especially well.

May 10. is a disappointed ai)d slighily peeved man. In last Thursday's "Trojan" Hansen sent out a call for all members of the “Senior Road Show” cast to see him in the “Trojan" office some day last week. Very few of them answered the summons, therefore the director's grouch. Hansen sends word that he will be in the “Trojan" office this week during the following hours: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1 to S; Tuesday anti Thursday, 2 to 3. All members of the cast, and especially the members of the “Campus Frolics" chorus are asked by the director to look him up without fail, for he has some important information concern ing*the "Road Show.” Plans for the “Senior Road Show" are going forward in good shape, according to Hansen. But he says that members of the cast should now begin study for their parts. A decided feature of the “Road Show" will be an act starring Willie Live and Musty Supher. The scflpt for this part of the bill has been written by these two comic writers. This, combined with the personal appearance of the “Trojan’s” famous comedy men, is said by Mr. Hansen to form one of the big surprises of the entire show. "We expect the ‘Road Show’ for this year to set a new standard for theatrical excellence,” said Hansen today. “Our bill, in my opinion, will include (CONTINUED ON PAGE 2) of the debate. and includes much philosophical JJRQE PLATES BE discussion of their habits and nrom\7rr\ r* k oi \/ mode of living. , RESERVED EARLY TWO STORIES BY BILL FOR BIG BANQUET Featured in its pages are two stories by Willie Live, “The Story of thc Great Indoors,” and “Cave Man Stuff, both claimed by thc editor to be superior products. Willie himself says that the latter story, which he prefers to call “7 he Tie That Binds,” is the best thing he has written for the U. S. C. funny magazine. Al Tachet. super-critic of the LTni-versity of Southern California, has contributed a play “written as a play should be written.” Originally composed for the Senior Road Show, it was later withdrawn by the dramatist because no one on the campus can act well enough to do it justice. Aside from the pearls of Al and Willie, “The HE-MAN Number,” will contain several colored drawings and many black and white cuts. There will also be more original jokes and \ erses than in any previous issue, ac-* cording to the editor. NAVAL DOCTOR SPEAKS TODAY Planning to make their annual banquet and dance one of the greatest affairs of the college year, Skull and Dagger men and pledges are looking forward with eagerness to May 3rd, the date set for the honorary fraternity’s great social function. Prof. Harold Stonier and Dr. Lawrence T. Lowrey are to be the speakers of the evening. All Skull and Dagger alumni who intend to attend are requested to reserve plates with, Lowell Jessen or Al Wesson. Lieut. C. H. Castle of the medical department of the United States Naval Reserve, will speak in Bovard Auditorium today, April IS, at 1 o’clock. He will outline the plans of the Naval Reserve for establishing an emergency medical unit at U. S. C.

Premedic students are especially invited. Upon the establishment of the emergency medical- unit here there will be a series of lectures beginning this month on first aid, minor surgery, operating room technique, and nursing. presented by various naval doctors. down, so everything looks sweet for the northern trip. Now that the Southern Cal. title is safely in their hands, the team is looking around for chances to cop new laurels. They will have an opportunity to annex the Southwestern Intercollegiate championship when they trot down to Arizona on the 28th of this month. Nothing definite is known concerning the caliber of the Wildcat’s squad, but the Trojans will be ready to strut their stuff when they arrive in Tucson. SPELLING EXAMINATION!

Armory Tonight So rapid has been the increase in attendance at the Senior Snaps that Violet Weissman hopes soon to have them a 100% affair. She urges every Senior to be present tonight at the fourth Snap to be held in the Armory at Exposition Park at 7:30. Blanch Moss is in charge of the program and has arranged for typical “snappy" entertainment. Gene Johnson's orchestra, with its teasing melodies, will scatter all trouble and gloom of the care-worn Senior, according to Miss Moss. She has also arranged for Mr. Turkle of the ■“Music Box,” across from the Old College, to give something special, attd another number, r * ■ f t*. veiled in deep secrecy, will round out the evening’s amusement. Correcting a report that has been circulating that the snaps are open to others than Seniors, Violet Weissman, vice-president of the class, states: “An erroneous report seems to have been circulated to the effect that un-derclassmen are entitled to come to the Snaps. We would be glad to include them in our good times, but tradition started the Snaps as a strictly Senior affair and we are anxious to keep it ac such. This means a chance for us to get acquainted.” ■ Notices have been sent to the fraternities and sororities that a 100% representation is expected.
