Features of the evening's entertainment will be the stunts which are to be put on by the various women’s organizations of the campus and the prizes to be awarded for the best costumes. The stunts are being lined up rapidly and everything is in readiness for a merry time, according to Helon Morton Hall, who has charge of arrangements. “Everyone,” says Elizabeth Kemp, president of the organization, “should At the meeting of the of the-Sophomore Class yesterday it was unanimously agreed that the Sophs are to wear heavy wool shirts as a class garb. Ttyis selection was made upon the recommendation of the Executive Committee who had made a thorough investigation of the matter and who had selected the shirts that were voted on. The one finally agreed on is ?. heavy, dark grey wool shirt, checkered in design which is to be worn outside the regular shirts as a sweater. All Sophs not present at the meeting are urged to order their shirts at once through the University Dry Goods Store or through Everett Smith or Ed Kendall as Monday has been selected as the day for the initial appearance on the Campus of the Sophomore men in their new shirts. SPEAKER URGES PURPOSE IN LIFE be in some sort of fancy costume, j -- humorous, if possible, because prizes Dr. W. Martin, Chapel Speaker, Emphasizes Importance of Education are to begiven for the best ones. But we do not want anyone to stay at home because of not having a costume. 1 know it i6 difficult for those living away from home to find costumes, and those who cannot do it we want to wear school clothes—but come, any way.” A girls' jazz orchestra will provide the music for the occasion, while the That a dominant purpose in life is greater than opportunity or chance was the underlying thought in the speech of Dr. Willsie C. Mar-ton of the Hollywood First Methodist Church yesterday in Chapel. Dr. Martin, well known in religi- Freshmen women, under the leader- circles, had for his theme “The ship of Ethel Mick, will furnish the Predominant Purpose.” “It is only refreshments ' the man with a definite pUrI)OSe iD As it .8 difficult for some of the that makes a touchdown. Peo- girls to get home, Ruth Harrison, secretary of the Y. W., asks that everyone who can bring a car to solve the problem of taking those home who have no other way. This plan In years past, and with the i;o-opera-tion of all the girls, should be equally feasible this year. ‘'All women students in the University are invited to the Hi-Jinks,” Is the word sent out by the committee in charge. “It is given for the purpose of promoting a more friendly feeling among all the girls, and to bring them closer together. There are comparatively few opportunities for all the women students to meet in a social way and so we are desir-lous of making this as gala an event as possible. j Plans for Asilomar Delegation Under Way Committees Appointed Announcement of committees appointed to assist Don Cameron in managing U.

The man with a purpose does a great thing for humanity," he said “As a man purposeth in his heart, so is he.” Dr. Martin cited the example of Livingstone, the man who delved into darkest Africa because of a purpose. He told of Benjamin Disraeli who had a racial prejudice to overcome, won because of a de-1 sire to serve. In his college days. Ad Kelly, former coach of California, wished to play football despite the physical incapacity he labored under with a club foot. He finally got to play and became one of the greatest players of his time. Having a dominant purpose brought suc-ces to him. 'If you are not attending this University for a purpose, better not be here,” said Dr. Martin, “for is is expensive in many ways. You are not here to get a pig-trough Education that guarantees a $10^000 a year job. You should think rather of getting an education that would serve society and not exploit it. Ev- “Soup and Fish” Collars Will Feature the Garb of the Hardy Engineers Nexxt Tuesday, November 20, is A.A.E. initiation day. Sixty-odd men wili be seen wearing tieless “soup and fish” collars, and their constant e§m-panion throughout the day will be a brick. Immediately following chapel the initiates will assemble on the steps of the Ad Building to have their picture taken. All engineers will meet at the barn at 7:30 P.M. anJ at that time the new members will be put through the U.S.C. A.A.E.’s unequaled material testing laboratory. Men failing to comply with instructions already given out are poor ma-terial and will be put through special extra tests. Although not required by headquarters our engineers enrolled all Froshmen. The engineers are one of the largest organizations on the campus and through their past membership campaigns and other activities have brought nationwide attention in engineering circles to U.S.C. Several of U.S.C.'s best cups and banners have been brought here either directly or indirectly by the nation’s premier University A.A.E. The following instructions were given to the initiates: “Wear stand-up collar with A.A.E. on right side and Monad on left. No ties allowed. These are to be worn all day. “Carry a GLAZED brick with you all day—to all classes.

This organization is composed of seventy students who after completing a three year course at the College of Liberal Arts will enter the Law College. The policy of the society has been to invite prominent speakers to its meetings, thus giving the embryo lawyers an opportunity to come in contact with the practical points of the profession. JUDGE CURTISS SPEAKS Judge Curtiss of the Superior Court was the principal speaker of the evening. In a very enlightening discourse he urged the new members to a steadfast application in the pursuit of their chosen vocation. Judge Curtiss is himself a graduate of the University and was a member of the Platonian Literary Society, the first organization of its kind on the campus, and he became a charter member of Aristotelian when the former society was reorganized. Under the direction of Miss Vera McLaren, vice-president of the society, the new members took a very active part in providing the program which followed the banquet. The initiates undertook to conduct a regular meeting of the society in proxy and some of the resulting impersonations were remarkable. Mr. Lacy responded to the toast given by Everett Smith to the new members and pledged their loyal support in maintaining the society's ideals and traditions. CANDIDATES CLIMB Among other things the candidates I were compelled to climb the thir-. teen stories to the club rooms instead of being allowed to use the elevator. Some of the new students were put through a catechism of tongue twisters by Miss McLaren, I which even brought tears to the | eyes of the waiter* they were so mirth provoking. The music by the Woolworth Orchestra, whose members were provided w’ith a variety of instruments secured at the famous five, ten and fifteen cent stores, was also vociferously applauded. A reading given by Miss Virginia Thompson, of the society, showed that the women are also taking an active part in the pre-legal work. Professor Harley, an honorary member of the organization, spoke telling of his great interest in the success of the society. President Raymond Brennan closed the speech-making an encouraging address on the prospects for the socity held in store by the ensuing year. E. L. Gentry has been granted the contract for the individual pictures to appear in the 1924 Annual. He will conduct a studio in the El Rodeo office above the Students’ Store, opening Monday, and will be there daily until December 21. Photographs of individual members of each campus or-gsnizstion, Juniors and Seniors are the requirements of the El Rodeo plans. Everyone is urged to arrange for an early appointment at the low rate of $1. Four sittings instead of three, as bas been the previous custom, wil! be made. Orders for pictures may be had at exceedingly reduced rates. Seniors will have two sets of sittings, one in cap and gown and one with regular attire, if the picture is to appear in more than one place. It is suggested by Harry Holton, manager of El Rodeo, that each organization have a uniform type of attire in order to give the page a more pleasing effect. INITIATE EIGHT INTO QUILL CLUB Neophytes Survive Ordeal and Come Forth as Full Fledged Authors Worn, weary, but triumphant, the eight initiates of Quill Club emerged from the ordeal last night. They are now full-fledged members, having gone, figuraUvely if not literally, through fire and water to attain this honor. These eight new members are Elinor Ives, Emilie Collins, Lois Craven, Dorothy Edwards, Carey McWilliams, Katherine Kirker, and Ross Wills. The first six were taken in at the resent tryouts, and the latter two on the merit of their wbrk in the Wooden Horse. The several parts of the initiation were arranged into events and prizes awarded to the winners of each. Ercil Adams, chancellor of the organization, acted as master of ceremonies and led the neophytes successfully through the tortuous paths. At the completion, each was awarded a degree. WILDCATS CLAW AT TROJANS IN ANNUAL CLASH Arizona Team is in Good Shape for Tussle in Coliseum CAMPBELL TO BE OUT etry preferred. Any student on the campus is welcome to contribute. This is a student activity and should be supported the same way that football and all-university dances are. Besides it is a splendid opportunity fo raspiring would-be authors to strut their stuff for it is one of the few high class publications of U. S. C. The Wooden Horse uses short stories, one act plays, essays, and poetry. Last year the poetry department was particularly strong and worth while, but this year there seems to be a dearth of poets. As yet no new cover designs have been submitted for this edition though there have been many critical comments on the old cover. There is still time however for any budding artist to submit a speci-ment of his talent for the approval of the august editorial staff. “W eare going to have another staff meeting soon,” says Editor Al Tachet. “The staff are going to take a street car for Inglewood or some other foreign seaport, ride as far as possible for a nickle and in some secluded mountain recess far away from the hurry and bustle of the city we will lay our plans for the The Festival of Nations, an annual best ooden Horse ever exhibited on | traditional pageant of the University FLUTE CLUB CONCERT IN CHAPEL TONIGHT An ensemble of 20 flutes will be one of the features of the annual concert of the Los Angeles Flute CGlub in Bovard Auditorium tonight. Tht program will also include numbers which are designed to show the use of the flute in many capacities. Prof. Jay Plowe of the faculty of the College of Music and for many years soloist of the Los Angtles Phil- Trojan Squad May Open Up; Expect Hard Fight By ROSS WILLS Some thirty nowllng Wildcates scrambled off -he limited this morning preparatory to getting all set for their encounter with the Trojan grid machine in the gigantic Coliseum C*>-morrow afternoon. Although the Arizona gridsters arrive this year with a record not qiiite so impressive as the team that held U. S. C. to a 15 to 0 win last year, they come with the intention of giving local fans the surprise of their lives. It’s this way: Arizona started off the present year in great shape, winning over Phoenix Indians 48 to 0 and trouncing the strong and reputable Texas A. & M. 12 to 7. But they suffered unfortunate injuries to their very best men in these games and were barely nosed out in the two successive engagements. However, the fighting Wildcats are now on the up and up and all their best pigskin toters are in fine shape, from Captain Clark down to the mascot. So the team which arrives today is a strong and rampant aggregation, and what is more important, one that remembers what the lowly and discredited Nevada squad almost did to California. TROJANS TO OPEN UP Henderson realizes that the “Wildcats” present a real hazard to Trojan hopes, and since hfidoes not intend to lose any ■more games this year, he is expected to cut loose with some stuff and let the fur. fly for all it is worth. Incidentally, a report from Tucson, received at this office yesterday, states emphatically that the Arizona squad is in the best condition of the year and |hat Henderson had better not do like Andy Smith and be “twenty miles away” on Saturday, or the locals need not be surprised to come out on the bottom side. Over-confidence of the Trojans is one point that the Wildcats are counting as a possibility in their favor, says the correspondent.

This Festival is staged every Thanksgiving or near that time and is rated as a big feature in University entertainments. Among the numbers of this year’s pageant will be a Chinese New Year Festival, by the Chinese mem- postd of Tex Roberts and Raymond Dike. Some difficulty was experienced in securing the sweaters due to a conflict with the varsity type of sweater. However, the sanction of the cardinal sweater without the S.
