Where’s My Wandering hook Tonight Asks Library Staff "Why books leave the library.” is the subject of this revelation, resulting from a confidential interview witn Miss Charlotte Brown, and is the answer to the pressing question, "Why are there never any books in “CoJlat-fral?’’ It would appear that students of U. S. C. possess such a hungering for the written references that books are purloined from their shelves and disappear forever. Here’s the dope! “1 am sure y down on frats and sororities. They are the chief offenders in this serious matter. Fraternity men think it clever to toss a book out of the window, and 1 have positive proof that one sorority has at least fifteen library books on their shelf. It has got to stop!” said Miss Brown, with righteous indignation. Last year two hundred books disappeared from the library and the number this year is beyond estimation. Grade cards have been withheld from the registrars office in an attempt to check up on the offenders with overdue charges One book, charged out to a professor, by the way, for two years, appeared on the desk the other morning, and it is DR. BROWN SPEAKS BEFORE Y COUNCIL Council Meeting Followed by General Meeting of the Trojan League Members and guests of the U. Y. Council wrere privileged to hear the "inside dope” on a proposed world peace movement Wednesday evening when Dr. William A. Brown of the University Methodist Church outlined for the cardinal points of the movement. Dr. Brown, wrho spoke in chapel recently, is a keen student of world condieions and is bringing the results of his travels and observations to bear upon the biggest problem that faces mankind today. Following the dinner the Council rdjourned to the general meeting of the Trojan League. This was led by Mr. James. President of the SWtdent Fellowship Club and the subject discussed was “What is Wrong With Our Colleges?” The meeting evolved into an open forum and a w'arm discussed was raised on the merits of the proposition laid before the studets earlier in the evening by Dr. Brown. Miss Vivian Olson, accompanied by Miss Helen Green, sang a solo. GRADUATING PLANS MADE BY SENIORS Miss Edith Weir, Appointment Secretary, Urges Seniors To Visit Office Mrs. Edith Weir, Appointment Sec-retary" of tho University of Southern California, featured the meeting of the Senior Class yesterday. She discussed the opportunities and advan tages offered to Seniors through the appointment office. Every' member of the class who desires to be placed in some line of work after graduation 'vas urged to visit the office. Announcements concerning caps and gowns, commencement invitations and announcements, records for El Rodeo, and * interclass athletics were made by President Oudermeulen. Marjorie McComber. vice-president of the class, outlined the plans for the first Senior Snap. It will be held next Wednesday night at the Holton Arms Apartments on Adams Street. NOTED ORGANIST WILL GIVE VESPER RECITAL Warren D. Allen, noted organist from Stanford University, w ill appear 1 in a recital at Bovard Auditorium under the auspices of the U. S. C., on the afternoon of March 30, Sunday, at 4 o’clock. The Stanford Men’s a relieving fact tbat at least a few books are being daily sneaked back ( lU*J wil1 alo° onto the shelves. The story takes a humorous turn when books are frequently returned from the city jail and the poor farm. What does this mean? Yes. there is no doubt of it. The type of people who would steal collateral books are the very kind who will end eventually in either the poor house or the lockup. A street car conductor was seen reading a familiarly marked book, and be ng questioned he responded that he had picked it up on his line. ‘‘Where is my wandering book to night?” might well become the slogan of the harrassed librarians. The Welfare Commission, the Comptroller and the Executive Committee have all been set on the job. so to say the least, it will be henceforth and forever advisable for frats and sororities to restrict their “promoting" to objects far outside the range of library books. Bocks of ancient stamp and cover are expected to begin appearing immediately, or things will start to happen. Warren Dwight Allen is one of the best known organists today. He has appeared in practically all the large cities of the United States, and has press comments from various large newspapers. Mr. Allen also leads the Men’s Glee Club at Stanford. The .recital Sunday afternoon is free to everyone and students of U. S. C. are urged to take advantage of the opportunity of hearing this distinguished organist. ENGINEERS RECEIVE SET OF PHONE APPARATUS Through the courtesy of the Southern California Telephone Company, represented by Mr. Letterman, the Engineering Department of U. S. C. has received a complete set of telephone appartus necessary to construct a board-mounted telephone display for demonstration purposes. The initiates of the local chapters of the A. I. E. F„ who are to start their initiation next Wednesday are to be called upon by President McCarter to construct the board with the material supplied through the courtesy of the Southern California Telephone Company. All initiates are requested to meet in the electrical laboratory at 7 p. m. on Wednesday, March 26. President McCarter urges all engineers who are not A: I. E. F. members now and who are eligible to be sure and sign up before initiation. This includes all those who are interested in electrical theory. U. S. C. Chosen as One of Forty-Three Universities to Co-Operate in Aiding Students; Graduates, Seniors and Juniors Are Eligible The University of Southern California has recently been chosen as one of the forty-three colleges which are cooperating with the Harmon Foundation in its practical experiment of lending money to students in the Junior year or above on a strictly business basis. One thousand dollars has been set aside for the use of students of this University who are wholly or part dependent on their own resources, who are seeking financial assistance in order to complete their course of study, and who are willing to borrow under the terms of the Division of Student Loam -Cof the Harmon Foundation. The ultimate objective of this test of student reliability in financial obligation^ is to prove to the investing world that properly selected, student character is sound security. That the faith of the Foundation is justified as far as the affiliated colleges are concerned is evidenced by the fact that already more than $2,400 has been returned to the Division of Student Loans four months in advance of the date on which the first installments are d;e to begin. This early response on the part of the student borrowers has made it possible to grant an appropriation to the University of Southern California to be user? during the second semester of this ye3r, thus extending the trial of the Harmon system of loans to another section of the country not already represented and bringing the number of affiliated colleges to forty-three during the present year. Students in the Junior’ year or above working toward a degree in the liberal arts or one of the professions are eligible for loans not exceeding $250 in any one year, or $500 in all. Repayment is arranged on the installment basis ^ef ten dollars a month, due to begin one year after graduation. The interest rate is six per cent, but all students paying in full within one year after graduation receive a discount of six per cent on the amount they actually borrowed. To insure the fund against loss a premium of ten per cent is charged, and after the entire amount loaned in any one year has been repaid with interest at six per cent, any premium remaining will be distributed among the borrowing students of that year with interest at six per cent in proportion to the premium paid by them. “It is the desire of the Foundation to place the financing of higher education on a secure business basis so that any student who desires may obtain his college education without the feeling of charity or paternalism,” says Dean Waugh. "It aims to take the self-financing of education out of the realm of sentiment and place it upon a plane of equality with all other undertakings of positive value. In the very act or repaying his debt the borrowing student is proving his financial integrity to the world at large. He can well be proud that (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) Ruling Prohibits Regular Vocational Students From Summer Session TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION COMMERCE PRINCES TO FROLIC AT EGAN’S SOON Future princes of the commercial world will assemble at Egan’s ballroom at Pico and Figueroa Streets, for the College of Commerce dance, Friday evening, March 28. While this is a commerce dance any University student is entitled to attend. Tickets for the affair are now on sale at the Commerce office. There are only a limited number available. According to Marion Joslyn. who is in charge of the affair, something new and novel is being planned. Especially interesting and clever are the dance programs. Alma Whalian and Worth Coleman are responsible for the designing of something original in the way of dance billets. The programs state that the holder is entitled to a "Pleasure Excursion on the Commerce Limited." The pleas-, ure trip is to end at twrelve sharp. The program is in ticket form and :’s divided in ten coupons, each entitling the holder to one dance on one division of the Commerce Railway. Each division is named after some faculty member of the College of Com. merce. Music is to be furnished by the Sonny and Haines’ Orchestra. Stanley W:heeler is handling publicity.

Tickets are on sale at the Commerce office for the price of $1.50. File Telegram of Protest to the Commander of Legion at Washington, D. C. Action, which it is hoped will de^ velop a general protest a«ain.st a recent ruling of the Veterans' Bureau affecting approximately half of the 365 vocational students at the University of Southern California, was taken at a meeting of the students Wednesday with the filing of a lenpthv telegram of protest to John R. Quinn, commander of the American Legion, now a* Washington. D. C. lhe telegram sets forth the ve -erans side of the question and ask that the machinery of the Legion b« set in motion to bring about a can. celiation of the order. A working or. ganization was accomplished at the meeting and a fund of a preliminary nature raised through the levy of a 25-cent tax against each of the vocational students. The ruling provides that no regular vocational training student will be allowed to attend school during the six summer weeks unless it is necessary for him to do so to attain the number of credits to permit him to graduate on schedule. Students taking courses in which a degree is issued are those affected. The ruling means the dis:ontinuance of compensation during the period. A committee of protest, composed of the fo lowing studtnts. was named at the meeting: J. W. Carpenter, S. H. McFadden. R. J. Irvine, J. E. Mar-field and H. K. Simon. The order which the U. S. C. vets are protesting effects every college and university in the United States where Federal Board students are attending, but this has been the first protest made against the order. The U. S. C. men hope that the protest can become nation wide in an effort to have the order repealed. Nearly 300 students now attending U. S. C. will be effected by the order, which specifies that the men And themselves jobs during the summer in “he line which they expect to pursue. Many of the men are married and will be without resources this summer if the order is carried out. JOINT LITERARY MEETING The Clionian and Comitia Literary Societies are to hold a joint social meeting in the “Y” Hut, Tuesday-evening, April 2. The members of Comitia are to be put on a short sketch for the benefit of their sister society. Co-ed letters for participation in sports has been advocated to the student body of the University of Idaho under a system which makes the earning of these letters almost impossible except through four years of activity. Sigma Sigma Honors Initiates at Annual Banquet on April 5 Sigma Sigma, Junior Men’s Honorary Fraternity, will hold its seventh annual banquet and dance, Saturday night, April 5, at Vista Del Arroyo, in honor of the new ititiates. This is one of the two exclusive events of the vear to be staged by Sigma Sigma, the ethers one being the publication of the Yellow Dog. The music will be furnished by the Extravaganza orchestia.

C. girls have signed up and will leave Woman’s Hall on Friday afternoon. The girls are asked to take pennants with them, and to know S. C. songs and yells, as the delegation will be expected to put on a short skit at Santa Ana.

The idea is a unique one. and so different from the usual cut and dried dance that those who came out of curiosity emphatically informed officials that the University should make the vaudeville and dance festivity an annual and perma rent Trojan affair. One of the greatest hits of the evening was the relief of expense for the over-drained students. This took away the last vestige of formality, and when various classmen appeared in their distinctive garbs, the jollity was complete.

As the rule of the party demanded only student cards, and though many rooms were torn up in search thereof, the Progressive was the first strictly University affair, and acclaimed as a real success by the delighted student patrons.
