All of the fea-! tures given below were not used at any one time, nor even with any one of the classes, but all of them were | exemplified during the term in some of the classes. 1.

Dwing to the unfavorable condition the track, which was muddy and S. C.’s basket shooters proved their ability to come from the rear and finish in the money in their four-game series with the University of Arizona, on Thursday, when they defeated the Arizona quintet 46 to 20 after they had suffered a trouncing at the Wildcat’s paws the day before by the tune of 36 to 28. Both games were fast and good exhibitions of big league basket ball. The Wildcats proved stronger than they had been cracked up to be; and after the general brawl on Thurs- iperv in many places, the time of i ^ay Trojan war horse took stock various events, as announced, is sidered good by the coaches. Med-will be awarded to men placing st and second in each event. Besides Oliver Cury’s sensational rformance in the high jump. Davis d Emmons showed up to advantage this event. Both boys surprised ‘emselves by clearing the cross bar »ry near the six foot mark. As a seam's beginning, their jumping looks >od. and gives promise of more to ime. HUGHES TAKES FIRST In the sprints. Hughes showed up ell. taking first in the finals of both ie century and the furlong, besides inning his heat in these events. In ie first heat of the 220, Dick Emmons (Continued on Page 4) T 'OPEN HOUSE' TODAY In order to bind the girls of the niversity closer together, the Y. W. A. Cabinet has arranged for a sees of “Open House” afternoons, the -st of which will be today from 2 to o’clock. The women of the universi-will be given an opportunity of eeting the officers of the Y. W. C. and the various members of the jbinet, as well as to become ac-linted with the faculty wives and emselves. The officers desire every 1 on the campus to come to this af-5 even if for only a moment oe-?en classes. Tea will be served ing the entire afternoon. These ‘Open House’ days will be irely informal. I believe that this be one of the means by which we become acquainted with the new s on the campus and also to form friendships. The officers would to meet the new girls and aid i in every possible way.” stated ion Joplin, Y. W. president. “We the girls of the university to the Y. W. C. A. rooms their uarters at all times.” and decided that the bird who peddled the dope about the “weak” cats had been a victim of his own drugs. In the first game the shining lights j were Kuhns and Campbell. All the | boys played consistent ball, but the ! $1.000-a-week man wras Campbell. He I played his guard with the same motto j in mind that General Joffre had when I he quoted those well-known lines, i “They shall not pass.” It is whispered around the court that after the game Campbell at guard tossed six baskets while his forward took the ! short end of the score with one. The first game wras somewhat of a surprise to the casaba fans of this j city, because S. C. was generally con-| ceded a strong winner. The team has no alibi to offer, which 'is original in I itself. They were treated square and | fair by the Wildcats, although they l can't seem to figure how the old fire-l side tabby got wild enough to take the I first battle of the series. In this brawl Kuhns and White I played forwards; Hiendrichs at cen-I ter; Axe and Campbell were the guards; Boech and Graham substi-j tuted for White and Axe. The second affair saw the team j stripped for action and hungering for j a nice juicy slice of wildcat ear. The j game was fast and clever, and after I the dust was swept up, all that Ari-(Continued on Page 4) Wierd Designs In Architect Room By ALLEN SIPLE Shades of Mut-Mut II, daughter to Rameses, coxswain of the Nile! Every color from passionate red to porcupine yellow in great gobs, technically known as Egyptian princesses, scarabs and royal vultures of the Pharaohs, now graces (?) the hitherto pale walls of the senior architecture room. Far in the silly night, Dad, the night watch, having been bribed with sweet words and all-night suckers, the neophyte daubers laid on the sentimental hues. Eloquent dyes, of course, were not unknown on the second floor of the Annex. On the contrary, certain holiday neckties and the new freshman smocks would make an Arab pottery shop or Pavlowa’s stage sets look like the gray void of pre-natal meditation. But those white boarding-house walls, having the general complexion of a fog on washday, marred prehaps by a blotch of gray custard, or a far-flung and mellow apple core, evidence of some noontide brawl, or, to continue the clothesline metaphor, those oppressive white walls, broken here and there with a dash of red ink, like Uncle Gameliel’s red flannels, presented a too spotless temptation to the eager young brushes of the department. Hence, the late embellishments. PHARAOH FOLLIES Immediately to the left, gentlemen, we have the Sahara-faced chorus from the Pharaoh follies. See how they trip the sands! Or are they waitresses in the cognac gardens of Perneb? The hand which is up and in front is to carry the tray; the hand down and behind means tips. Then there is the awful ju-ju bird, which lays the eggs in the architecture department (some job, we call it). And there is Mut-mut II, as has been said, the only daughter to Rameses, coxswain of the Nile. She has had quite a past, they say. Almost 3000 years of one! And she gets harder all the time! ANCIENT FISH STORY The Epic of the Wormy Dog-Fish, which in Hebrew legend corresponds to Jonah’s affair, is well established in the classic lore of the department. O-ho, the royal fisher, striding forth to jab the sportive dog-fish, gets more (Continued on Page 3) BETA PHI NOW IS CHAPTER OF DELTA GAMMA Delta Gamma Sorority One the Oldest in the United States Today of DINE AT CHAPTER HOUSE Local Was One of Strongest on Local Campus; Founded 902 n NINE MEN TAKEN INTO SKULL AND SCALES, AT LAW Prominent Alumnae Present; Annual Initiation Ceremonies Held Feb. 9th Beta Phi local sorority of the Uni versity of Southern California on last Saturday morning, became Alpha Nu phapter of Delta Gamma during installation ceremonies Saturday afternoon, and in the evening were banqueted by the Delta Gamma alumnae as full-fledged members of the sorority which they had petitioned successfully after four years of consideration. The ceremonies took place at the chapter house, 920 West Twenty-eighth Street, and forty-three members, both active and alumnae, w’ere installed as charter members of the latest great national sorority to come on the U. S. C. campus. Under ruling of the sorority’s national laws, only alumnae of three years back were taken in. There were twenty-four alumnae and nineteen active members installed. Delta Gamma officers officiating were; Rose Smith, Grand Installing President; Blanche Garten, Grand Installing Officer; and Mary Noeremberg, all of whom are prominent alumnae in Southern California. FOUNDED IN 1874 Delta Gamma sorority was founded on January 2, 1874, by Mary Comfort, Eva Webb and Anna Boyd, three students of Oxford Institute, Oxford, Mississippi. -For the most part it has confined its chapters to the eastern and mid-western states, the notable exception being here on the coast, wrhere there are six chapters, at the University of Washington, Washington State College, University of Oregon, University of California.

C.’s $20,000, 30-day, basketball pavilion, served while you wait, a la Exposition Park, will be officially dedicated tomorrow when Occidental’s snarling quintet of casaba heavers come over to lock horns with Coach .Henderson’s Trojans in the first local basketball game of the regular season. In addition, the freshman team will meet the Manual Arts five in their hardest game thus far, while Coach Lee’s gymnasium team, now an officially recognized minor sport at the university, will do a number of stunts for the crowd assembled. Thus far, both basketball and the pavilion have been matters to be looked forward to rather than of intense present campus interest, but now it is the plan and hope of the athletic management to sell baskefball to every student in the university. The result should be a crowded grandstand that will roar out a welcome to the Trojan five on the night of their first home appearance. Every student is not only urged to attend, to use a classic phrase, but is required to bring with him enough honest to goodness spirit so that the yells will be a real test of the pavilion’s construction. Anyone killed by falling timbers or the yell king’s trumpet will have full life insurance paid by university authorities. Hence there is no danger. TIGERS HAVE TEAM In spite of the fact that the full moon came a couple of days ago, Wednesday promises to be a full evening all around. Both games will be full of excitement, for while the Trojan varsiy is supposed to have an edge over the Tigers, according to dope, still the Occidental crew upset tradition last Saturday and defeated Pomona’s five. They are great little (Continued on Page 3) BEING A HE A VENL Y DRAMA OF DOUBT AND EXPERIENCE EL RODEO MEETING here will be an Important ting of the El Rodeo Staff immediately following apel, on the stage.

BANQUET AT CITY CLUB Lockett, Leahy, Smith, Maxwell, Farman, Hervey, Amstutz, Curtis and Shakley Chosen Thursday evening, February 9, witnessed the annual initiatory ceremonies of the Lawr School Honor Society, Skull and Scales. The formal initiation was followed by a banquet in the Red room of the L. A. City Club. The banquet was rendered especially significant by the (Continued from Page 3) (The time is the Judgment Day. Gabriel has blown his horn and the graves have given up their dead. Angels have marshalled the newly-awakened into squads and have marched them through the Pearly Gates. For the time being, the world is deserted, save for one grave. It opens and a man comes out. He is much bewildered and stares around at the empty graves. He speaks,) Now this is a deucedly queer situation. Here I’ve been dead all these years, then suddenly find myself waking up. Maybe, though, it’s only temporal and I’m let out to haunt someone. Wait, I wonder if it could be the Judgment Day- But then, where are all the other mortals? Rather looks as if I’d been left out of something. (He wanders along and meets a man going in the opposite direction whom he decides to ask about it.) “I say, could you tell me just what sort of a situation this is? I seem to have missed something.” (The other looks him over and laughs.) “Why, haven’t you been in yet?” “In where?” “Why, in at the Judgment?” “Is today Judgment Day?” “What did you think it was, Creation? Where were you at the reveille?” “I guess I must have overslept. But what can I do about it? I suppose the gates are closed by now?” “Yes, I just came out.’ ’ “What do they do to you in there anyway ?” IN COURT “Weren’t you ever in court before?” “Well, I was arrested once for speeding.” (Just then a fanfare of trumpets and the sound of thunder is heard. The stranger looks anxiously about and bids a hurried farewell, explaining;) “You see, my case is awaiting appeal and I don’t want to displease the court. They might not want me hanging around here before my new trial. (He goes off.) (The man who was awakened late continues along his way and soon reaches the Pearly Gates. There is no one in sight and the gates are closed. He knocks several times and calls, but there is no answer. At length tiring of his efforts he sits down on the step wiping his brow.) (He has been sitting there for some time when the gates swing open and Saint Peter, looking very cross, comes out. The man springs to his feet immediately and Saint Peter asks him what he is doing there. The man is (Continued from Page 3) ANNOUNCE TROIAN GYMNAST TEAM FOR CITY MEET ON 24TH Coach Lee of the U. S.
