"High-school Day” has long been talked of and anticipated by active Trojans but until this year no feasable plan of action has been taken. Under the dirpcwon of Frank Hadlock. athletic manager .the Varsity and Freshman numerol clubs have turned the trick, with a well planned program and routine of action, success is inevitable. To insure this success several important committees have been formed with the varsity men who are working hard toward its achievement. While such a plan of acquainting BOOK OF JOB AT U. S. C.

Keb. 22. “The Book of Job” by Stuart Walker’s Portmanteau Players, will be given at Bovard Auditorium Washington’s birthday. Feb. 22, in connection with U. S. C. Artist Course for the benefit of the Woman’s Building. “The Book of Job" as presented by Mr. Walker is an actual dramatic presen-tion of the Old Testament text. According to Irvin Cobb. “The Book of Job” is the greatest drama of the ages. The original was written in the time of Solomon, and is presented in almost the same words today. It was first given by Stuart Walker in 1918 and met with instant success. After a long run in the East, a tour of the leading cities in the West is being made with even greater success.

Such a plan will become an annual funct on of the Varsity and Freshman Numeral Clubs. Although this is the first time such a plan is to be carried out, it will include all the essentials of paramount activity, (Continued on Page 4) “Job" is the kind of drama that appeals to all classes of people. It has intense emotional qualities with flashes of wit, satire, humor and angry outbursts of passion. A special price of 75c is made to students on this production. CO-OPERATION NEEDED _ Plan is to Eliminate the ‘‘Highbrows'’ and to Promote Friendliness Here “Say it first!” is the latest slogan of the campaign for “Hello" week, which begins next Monday and runs through Friday, on the campus of the University of Southern California. David Cleveland, chairman, has several novel plans which he hopes will aid, in the elimination of the “highbrow" from the Trojan campus. “It’s the spirit of friendliness we want.” said Harry Silke, president of the A. S. B. “The only way we can get a united university is by forming closer bonds of friendship between those who go to make up the university. Professors and students alike are to come Monday morning with a heartfull of smiles and a truckload of ‘helflos' wlvich, altfiough distributed freely, shall multiply until a hello and a sm le becomes more natural and unconscious than lead in a pecil.” Actjve support is being given to the committee sponsoring the mova for a greater Trojan spirit by various organizations on the campus. Co-eds have declared their willingness to meet others half-wav, and it is expected that a few of the fair sex will feel strangely alone when they attempt to sail by with their heads in the clouds. “Whole-hearted co-operation js necessary to make the week a success,” declared Solly Seamons, a member of the eommitttee. “If some decline to greet felkw-Trojans there will be no way to force them to do so other than public opinion—and to that they will have proved immune. They must be made to see the light. Registration in the University may be considered a sufficient introduction and reason for s^gns of greeting between Trojans.” CARDS RETAIN CONFERENCE LEAD BY BEATING TROJANS Turner's Men Get Even Split in Four Contests With Stanford When Redshirts Win 31 to 23 Last Evening Stanford's flashy court team retained its lead in the Southern section of the Pacific Coast Conference by handing the Trojan basketeers a 31 to 2:’ jolt in the U.
