Just how many Defeat All Opponents by Two to One Scores During Season "And a little child i^iall lead them." While the varsity has been alternating wins and losses .the Frosh basketball quintet has been sawing away at old lady Victory, saying little and doing much, and piling up one of the most impressive records ever made by a U. S. C. pea-green outfit. To date, the Frosh navigators of the inflated pellet have so overwhelmingly outclassed all opponents as to leave little room for any question of opposition at all. They have played eight games, all with local or nearby teams, but all well coached and classy outfits. and defeated them. each, by more than two to one scores. GOOD COACHING The stellar coaching the yearlings have received, together with a snappy-going teamwork “of ever’ bloomin’ soul." is chiefly the reason for their excellent record The boys who have been traveling j along in high, regularly, are.

C. really entitled to the $10,000,000 which she seeks to acquire in the coining endowment campaign?”1 Tlie question is seldom raised, but for the benefit of the doubting few and for those who insist upon the facts, data lias been collected which re- j moves even the slightest doubt regarding the University's right to the sum asked for. Seven million, two hundred and three thousand dollars is th*' sum spent annually by U. S. C. students in board, room and books. This is the amount of money which U. S. C. stu-4 dents actually put in Los Angeles. Compared with the money involved in the operation of local commercial industries, the sum spent by U. S. C. students ranks with that of the first twenty-five leading industries. FIGURE IT OUT Following is an estimate of the money put into the city by several important industries: Sheet metal................$3,000,000 Leather goods.............. 1.400,000 Fish canneries............. 9,000.000 Following is an estimate of the cost of the equipment of these industries: Sheet metal................$1,700,000 Leather goods.............. .">80,000 Fish canneries.............. 4,900,000 (COXTIXCKP <>N* PACK <<*ONTlXCKl> OX PACK -i SENIORS ADOPT VOLUNTARY DUES Reopen President's Sunday School Class Dr. von lvleiuSmid’s Sunday school class will be reopened next Sunday, according to Reverend Yandagriff, University pastor.

Porter of the Law School expects to leave Sunday for Washington. D. C.. to attend a national conference called for tbe purpose of founding the “American Law Institute,” a body which is to function for clarifying American laws. Voluntary donations instead of a regular semester assessment will be the method of raising funds for the present senior class during the coming semester. Lindley Bothwell, newly ciected treasurer of the (lass, surprised the seniors at the regular class meeting yesterday morning by proposing the abolition of class dues and the adoption of ihe voluntary donation scheme. Bothwell proposed that each mem-i her of the class donate a quarter at every regular class meeting. The yell king said that since attendance w-as required at these meetings it would be a simple matter of raising funds for the class for every member to donate at the meetings. The old method of individually seeing each member of the class and ; collecting a dollar from them is cumbersome and unsatisfactory. Bothwell ! said. Students do not miss the quarters when collected in four install-; meuts, the treasurer suggested. James Mussatti moved the adoption of the “Bothwell Project,” which mo tion carried after a heated argument. In the collection made at the end of the meeting. $35.20 was obtained. Chester McKay, president of the seniors, urged everyone ot support tho j Extravaganza to the limit, and also the Senior Road Show, which will be held March 1">. TALK PLANNED ATTENDANCE AT ALL COLLEGES SHOW JNCREASE Usual Second Semester Decrease Fails to Make Appearance at Any College Despite flunks, conditions, and all the other causes that make students leave college in the middle of the year, the total enrollment of all the U. S. C. colleges is expected to exceed iny previous mark. Liberal Arts has enrolled approximately 2500, and tlte enrollment is still continuing. Belated arrivals are still lined up at the desk eager to pay out dad’s money for U. S. C. instruction. Enrollment in the various extension courses is expected to be fully as large as for the previous semester. The total enrollment for extension work has about l.">00 for last term. EXTENSION INCREASES The fact that the total for the second semester’s extension work is as large as that for the first semester is a particularly good sign for extension work. For. according to the extension office, the second semester’s enrollment is generally less than that for the first period. Particular enthusiasm is being shown in the three extension courses is real estate methods and in the course in investments under Professor Olson. All of these classes are larger than they were for the first semester. and they are still growing. Since the Dental Colleges do not add (CONTINUED ON PAGE 2^ I .
