There remains only this morning and this afternoon in which to purchase this year's annual. Many demands have been made for an extension of time, hut according to Harry Holton, manager. this will be absolutely impossible because ihe exact number of covers must be known immediately. Sales have been very poor up to date. “The students should realize.” says Holton, “that El Rodeo is an all-Universtty publication, and deserves the support of the entire student body. We were expecting a decided increase in the sales the last few days, but as yet it can hardly be noticed. Students are disappointed every year because they neglected to reserve an annual. Do not let this be the case this year.’* The office in the Associated Booli Store will be open all day, as well as the branch in the old College. The Arcade ticket booth will also be open between the hours of 11 and 1. Three dollars only is required to reserve an annual, the remaining one dollar and a half can be paid on or after May 15, the date on which the annuals will be out. This year's El Rodeo will surpass any which has ever appeared on the campus. The book will be 100 pages larger, in which pictures of every activity and organization can be found. In short, it is planned to make the book representative of the University of Southern California. According to Kenneth Crist, editor, several senior records have not been turned in. These must be in immediately as well as the few group pictures which remain to be taken. Many of the campus organizations have not siened up for space as yet.

C- at the MUSIC BY GENE JOHNSON Informality Idea is Stressed: Dates Arc Not at All Essential “Wear your old clothes,” said Evelyn Smith, in an interview. By way of explanation, it might be stated that Miss Smith was not referring to anything connected with the conservation of clothing, but was merely emphasizing the informality which will characterize ihe all-University dance to be given Thursday, March 20. This event which will be the first of its kind this year, Fs a progressive affair, to be given at five of the fra-:emit'.' and sorority houses on Twenty-eighth Street. These include the Phi Alpha. Delta Gamma. Alpha Chi, Pi Phi, and Lambda Psi houses.

A reception committee will be appointed for every house to promote i* general atmosphere of festivity. The Sophomore Executive Committee, which has been placed in charge of the punch arrangements, promises something very much worthwhile in the way of liquid refreshments. Seven-thirty to eleven are the hours for the evening’s enjoyment. For 'lie nominal sum of five cents or one nickel one couple may participate in a coinpanying alluring music. ‘Dates, while very essential in some cases, are entirely unnecessary in this instance and should be discouraged rather than encouraged,” says Evelyn Smith.

Plenty of good dancing space is guaranteed." C Besides the opportunity to enjoy the j excellent floor and music, those who participated will get a chance to view seme of S.

As things began to run smoothly, the little rehearsal audience shed tears and convulsed with laughter. They conceded heartily that the story was a scream from beginning to end, and the funniest thing ever sprouted in Los Angeles. Bronson Howard as the old bachelor professor, and his opposite.

Unlike most musical comedies, tbe play has a real, highly spiced and entertaining plot, that will keep the fans on the edge of their seats from the well blended projection of approximately thirty speaking parts. The play is excellently studded with gems of music. It is written particularly about LT. S. C. with distinctive professional genius effervescing. Gene Johnson leads the chorus on to victory with such ankle itchers as “Six and Seven Eighths'' and the “Dancin' Craze,” the plaintive, appealing b°Hads as “When You are Near,” “Someone." and affection provoker and “Autumn Time” sung by the leading lad^.

C. and Redlands,” said Ned Lewis. “The question to be debated upon is “Resolved, that Congress should have the power to reenact laws declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.” Speaking for the negative, Raymond Brennan and Bill Moore will speak for U. S. C. against Redlands. As leader of the team from Redlands Russell Andrus with Dwayne Gordon will represent Redlands. Mr. Andrus recently won the southern California Extemporaneous speaking contest. At the Southern Branch U. S. C.’s s>de. the affirmative, will be sustained by Xed Lewis and Arthur Syvertson. Both the debates at the S. B. U. C and at the Old College, will be free of charge.

MILLS EDUCATOR TO SPEAK MONDAY Will Speak in Connection With Local Drive for Women’s Building Dr. Aurelia Reinhardt one of the outstanding w-omen educators of the country and president of Mills College, is to speak Monday at the special assembly to tie held at 11 o’clock. Dr. Rheinhardt has risen to her high position in the educational world through her wrork at Mills College. She has brought the institution to a position wtoere it ranks among the leading women's colleges of the country. Dr. Rheinhardt has also taken an active part in educational drives throughout the country and is coming here in connection with the local drive for the women's building wiiich fact should make her address of special interest to women students of the Fniversity. Tn order that all may have a chance to hear Dr. Rheinhardt speak, those classes scheduled for 11 will Tie held on Tuesday at 11 instead. Tuesday's chapel exercises being disposed with. next few weeks if the proper procedure is to be carried out. Just who tbe convention is likel; o nominate remains a mystery to all concerned. While any delegate is privileged to name any good Republican for the party standard bearer it is expected that the members of the convention will limit their choice to five or six of the most sig nificant contestants. According to the general chairman this will be necessary because of the lack of time. The U. S. C. convention it to complete their business in two and one half hours while the rea national gathering is allowed da;,. to come to a decision. Up to the present time none « the state delegations have been instructed as to who their choice is to be. Among the states which are going to be closely watched are New ium.” As the dance is to be an informal one, no corsages are to be worn. Thi* is following the precedent set by the Junior F*hom when only two disr^gard-ed to injunction to do away with corsages. “This is a particularly important point,” said Johnny Hawkins,” and applies to everyone who is going. Any departure from this rule will show a lack of co-operation with the spirit of the affair. ’ Cercle Francais To Meet In Hollywood Cercle Francais will meet this afternoon at the home of Professor and Mrs. Kenneth Bissel. 73"7 Franklin Ave.. Ho!lvwrood. The meeting will be from two to six. as previously announced.

Professor Gilliland of the History Department, favored those present by reading a series of quotations from and about President Wilson, significant of the place held by him in designing the greatest plan tor world peace that history' has ever known. “In the years mat lie ahead.” said Doctor Gilliland, “we will find that Wilson was the great idea’ist of the twentieth century, a man whose ideals it v ’i take tbe nations of today centuries to re?ch.” The program for the evening consisted of a constitutional baseball game which all present engaged in and wrhich was adjudged to be a very exciting and informative pastime after both sides had had their innings. To Mr. Small, the new censor, goes the credit for initiating fhe new game which promises to be very popular. Chaplain McCollum-made some excellent suggestions for the better campus unity of the society. For March 10, Mr. McGee and Mr. Willard Brown will debate on the topic of “Resolved that the ban on I intercollegiate boxing and wTrestling i should be removed.” SIGMA SIGMA WILL PLEDGE NEXT WEEK Honorary to \ Announce Men Chosen for Membership from Class of 1925 York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio. tjon Massachusetts and California.
