W. S. and Women's Club Unite in Planning Program For Entertainment By FREEMAN HALL "Mothers Day”—the day when the children of the nation pause a few moments in their busy lives to think and remember their mothers, was nationally celebrated last Sunday. Here at the University of Southern California ih honor of the mothers of the Trojans ,a special day is being set aside for the observance of ‘ Mother’s Day.” This day is next Thursday, May 15. Even though ‘‘Trojan Mother’s Day” is a wee bit tardy from the schedule of the national observance, it is evident by the students’ reception of the proposed date that their mothers will be here on that day. It should give the Trojans the greatest peasure to show their mothers through the halls of Troy. Probably many of the mothers are alumnae, and will doub’y enjoy i looking over the old nooks and cor- Jane Maas and Marjorie Vawter who have the leading dance parts in Dionsyia,” the Spring pageant which is given on the Old College lawn ners where they once crammed for j Thursday. the next class, or wrhispered to girl LOWELL LINDLEY IS LAW PRESIDENT Annual Election at Law School Held Last Week; Large Vote Cast DR.

They enjoy knowing of the new improvements on the campus; the new woman's building, the new science building, the rehabilitation of the old Bovard field where they watched their hero win his letter at football or track. Many of those mothers who visit the campus, Thursday, may have never attended college. Their enjoyment will come from seeing where their son goes to college. Sponsored by the Associated Women Students a program has been arranged for the Mother s Day chapel which is to be held at eleven o’clock. Following tvis in the cool shade of Exposition Park a luncheon is to be served. With the University Women's Club acting as hostess .a reception and entertainment will be held for the U. S. C.

Some thirty students will have the publication for sale in all departments. It may also be purchased in the Associated Students <5tore. The Commerce Journal contains articles which deal with a widespread variety of subjects. It is by no means confined to the interests of just College of Commerce students and professors. Such topics as the place of chemistry in modern industrial orders, the problems of teaching commercial subjects to high school students, the importance of the vegetable industry to California, and the use of some little known, but widely used commodities in modern manufacturing are among those prosented. Roland Parker. ’25, is in charge of today’s sale. Parker points out one of the values of the Journal to all classes of readers. “Every person, whether he or she be a doctor, merchant, dentist, laborer, writer, actor, or housewife, must at some time come in contact with such common business things as checks, deeds, mortgages, or income tax statements. In addition to a number of specialized subjects, the Commerce Journal deals with just these things in a simple and clear rut way. It is really written for all classes of readers.” The Commerce Journal has the largest circulation of any publication on the campus, appeared in several U. S. C. productions. was up to the standad he has set in the past and gave a remarkable performance. His name was uninten-tionaKv omitted from the story. Another typographical error combined the names of Marquis Busby and Chal-len Landers into Challen Busby. Landers and Metcalfe gave the twin act and Busby sang in the trio which presented “Walking Home,” in the Bachelors’ act. Just a few weeks before her graduation from the University of Southern California, tragic death robbed Janice Smurr, of the honors for which she had worked throughout her four years in college. Miss Smurr, the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Smurr, came home from the University suffering from a severe sore throat. By mistake, lysol was taken for a remedy instead of cough medicine. Although an antidote was taken immediately, Miss Smurr died on the way to the Receiving hospital. Of a quiet, unassuming manner. Janice Smurr made friends with whomever she met. She was an untiring worker in the clas of '24, and devoted a great deal of her time to Y work. Funeral services were held last Saturday. Intercollegiate Glee Club Concert To Be Held Friday Six glee clubs of Southern California are takinc part in an intercollegiate concert Friday night at the Pasadena High School under the auspices of the Pasadena Jubilee Association. Redlands University, U. S. C-, Pomona, Occidental Whittier College and Caltech are to be represented. This is the first concert of its kind to be held in California and according to Harry Hardin, manager of the club, a large attendance is expected.

Formation of an intercollegiate glee club conference was begun early this season and is composed of directors and managers of all Southern Caliofr. n:a glee clubs. The concert Friday night is to open the movement to bring abcut inter-collegiate contests among all the universities in the state. The contests are to be held similar to debates and will use the percentage ratings as is used in basketball. The contests are to begin next year. The formation of such a conference was made to promote competition among the glee clubs of various institutions and to make a better spirit of cooperation between the student body and glee club. The plan will require a higher standard for glee clubs and stricter requirements will be paced on members'. According to J- R T. Thomas, president of the gee club, the concert Friday tight is to be the best presented ir Southern California this season and should attract a great many. Tickets are on sale in the Associated Students store and are fifty cents and one dollar. By DOROTHY HERRIMAN It is the aim of the Women's Athletic Association of U. S. C. to establish another worth while tradition Thursday afternoon when ‘‘The Dionsyia,” an ancient Greek festival is presented on the lawn in front of the Old College at 3:30. Tickets for the affair will be on sale in front of the Administration building today immediately following chapel ex ercises, or may be obtained in the women’s gymnasium at any time. 0 Miss Dorothy Doty, a former pupil of Norman Gould, had been coaching one hundred and fifty girls for the last three months in the many group and solo dances which will depict the story of the “Dionysia. All costume material has been dyed to represent the color schemes of the various dances. An all-University orchestra will render music for the production. The Dionysia was one of the most important of ancient Greek festivals, held in honor of the god Dionysius (Bacchus), regarded as the spjiritual form of the new vernal life. The festival was held each spring as Diony-sis recovered from his midwinter madness and intensely conceived the spring. It was celebrated with solemn processions, profusion of flowers, songs and dances, and bore the character of a cheerful national feast. In the first part Aurora goddess of the Dawn, awakens wwith a restless desire for spring, and cal! Boreas, Zephyrus, Natus and Eurus ,the four Winds, to her aid. The Winds approach from the four comers of the earth and assemble in a fervent prayer to Iris goddess of the Rainbow, who sends forth rain and the rainbow. AppoMo, th - Sun-god .appears with his followers ,ar J when the earth is fully warmed and illumined, a messenger comes heralding the approach of spring and her maidens, who pour upon the earth fragrant blossoms of health and happiness. In part two, which is supposed to laid in the forest near Atticia, Greece, vestal virgins enter with the sacred fire followed by men and women bearing gifts for Dionysus. Following a solemn ceremony in honor of the sun and trees the character of the festival changes to merriment when various groups of- dancers perform for the entertainment of tiheir comrades. El Rodeo Sport Section Said to Be One of the Best in History “Contrary to unofficial reports which have been circulated by a few people cn the campus who are in no way connected with the El Rodeo that the annual would not be out until July 15, the Year Book will absolutely be ready for distribution on or before June 1.” This was the statement made yesterday by Kenneth Crist, editor-in-chief of the El Rodeo. Crist goes' on to say, “Prior to this week we could not give out a definite statement as to when El Rodeo would actually be ready for distribution, but we are now ready to make a final statement that the annual will positively be ready for distribution on or before June 1. To show how groundless the rumors are, we talked with the printer and engraver, and in a pinch, could get the book ready for distribution within a week. This will not be necessary, however, for we can have the book ready by June 1, without any trouble. There is no need for any alarm on the part of the Student Body, as to whether it will be out on time. It w ill. ’ The “Alley Rat” in the back of the book will be one of the biggest features of this year’s annual. The “Alley Rat” will contain action pictures of the leading campus celebrities. The editor of this section has made extensive investigations and has “The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing hut the Truth” to report. According to Kenneth Crist, the absolute truth will appear in this section, Ed Murray, assistant editor of El Rodeo, and Harry Holton, business manager, have been working night and day in conjunction with the editor in order that the book could be out on time in the best manner possible. Barton Hutchins, associate editor, reports that the sport section is entirely complete. Hutchins secured the services of one of the leading assistant sport editors, on one of the metropolitan papers ,to check up on the sport section and determine if it was accurate. After looking it over, the distinguished gentleman of the press reported that it was not only accurate, but was one of the best sport sections he had seen in any college annual in the southwest. Lowell Lindley will be president of the Student Body of the College of Law next year. He was elected by a vote of 132 to 80 over La Marr Butler at the annual Law election last Thursday. Lindley received his A. B. fi'cm Liberal Arts iast spring and was one of the assistant coaches of the Freshman football team last fall. Margaret McGrath win take charge of the social functions at Law next year as vice-president/ She was unopposed in her race for this office. Paul Crouch was also unanimously elected secretary-trea surer. Grant Chapman was ebesen manager of the Stare Decisis without a contest. The job of editing Store Decisis went to Karl Davis by a 140 to 102 vote over John Millhollen. Law elections were held earlier than usual this year. The fact that only two offices were contested tamed down the elections considerably. Y ANNOUNCEMENT Glen Turner, of the Y announces that the Y Council will not meet Wednesday, for its regular meeting. Plans are being made to use the time in preparation for the success of Mother’s Day, which will be Thursday. Bachelors will assemble in front of chapel at noon today passing to a very important luncheon meeting. All stags are expected to respond. Petitions for Student Body Office Candidates Due on Thursday; Few Hats Definitely Thrown in the Ring as Yet These are restless days for the campus politicians. Restless because it is the lull before the storm. Such a period as this through which the aspirants for campus offices are passing may be likened to the prepara-j iions for a huge bonfire. Those wrho are going to start the fire are collecting the wood; they don’t know where it is all coming from, but they C know it will eventually arrive. Right now, the activities of the campus politicians (so called) are confined to boosting candidates for class offices. However those interested in general elections have not been asleep. Petitions, heralding the nomination of candidates for the many offices, are due the General Manager’s office Thursday and several of these long sheets have been circulating on the campus. Because of the fact that he is president of the Tro}an Knights and Sigma Sigma next fall and believing that he will have too much work to do with these jobs. Bud Weiin has withdrawn from the race for the presidency of the Senior Class. To some extent, the rules this year have taken a kick out of the elections in as much as there will be no dark horses, groomed secretly and pushed to the front at the last moment. Rules laid down by the Executive Committee specify that the petitions must be in one week before nomination. In past years petitions could be handed in at the last moment and candidates brought forth as a surprise, the campaign managers of such deeming it good political manuevering to reap a big landslide of interest rather than allowing said interest to pile up over a long period. Thursday is to be a big day for political workers. Besides the class elections and the filing of petitions. College of Commerce will stage its annual nomination assembly. Elections at this college will be over May 21, so that the general elections will have to divide honors with no other political happening. /-aw stole a marsh on the rest of the University and held its elections last Thursday. This will leave the field open for general political bosses for the professional colleges are always lively battle grounds when politics are in the air. Many petitions w'ill not be out until Wednesday, which is plenty of time for a petiUon has only to contain fifty names to be correctly filed, and these may be secured in an hour. Students are urged to sigu any petitions presented to them for the signature on such merely enters the candidate in the race and does not (CONTINUED ON PAGE THREE) COMMERCE HOLDS SPECIAL ASSEMBLY Nominations for Commerce Officers to be Held in Assembly Thursday Nominations for next year’s officers in the Commerce Club will take place Thursday morning at 11 o’clock in a Ejkcia] Comerce assembly. The as-i !y will r»e held in the O’d Co.-lege Chapel. 1 l^ven offices are t.j be iiiled. These include the president ,six individual vice-presidents .a secretary, a treasurer, a student editor ,and a student manager for the Commerce Journal. The other two offices of the club are appointive. Petitions for all of the positions are now being circulated among Commerce students. Several other important business items are to be taken up at the assembly according to Lyman Johnson, president of the club. Among these is a definite announcement of the Commerce Banquet which is to be held on May 21 at the City Club. This event will be the final activity of the Commerce Club for the present year. A number of special guests and sqeakers have already been secured. CHAPEL SPEAKERS Dr. Dallas Lore Sharp, well known author from Santa Barbara, will speak to U. S. C. students at the chapel hour Tuesday, May 13. Mr. Sharp is leaving California for Massachusetts in a short time. TROJAN KNIGHTS Trojan Knights will meet under the tower of the Administration Building at 11 o’clock today. Four Freshmen In Finals For Ames Debating Cup After the eliminaton of six of the contestants for the Ames Freshman Debasing Cup last week, the four winners will enter final tryouts in chapel Thursday. Ten Freshmen originally entered the tourney which is given annually under the auspices of Delta Sigma Rho, honorary debating fraternity. Arthur Syvertson placed first, Manuel Ruiz, second, and Adna Leonard, Jr. and Harry Cohen tide for third place. The cup for which the Freshman debaters are vieing is given annually by Neal Ames ,an alumnus of the University. While a student here Ames was prominent in forensie affairs, having won the Bowen cup and numerous other honors that are sought by the Trojan debaters. He is a mem- ber of Delta Sigma Rho Honorary Debating Fraternity. This year’s question is “Resolved, that the preservation of the best interests of the United States demands the lection of a Republican president in the coming political campaign." Syvertson and Leonard will take the affirmative .while Ruiz and Cohen are to speak for the negative. All four men have made good showings in the p?.st debate season having been victorious over teams of some of te neighboring collegiate institutions. Three cf the contestants will be eli minated in the last tryout. Instead of signifying the winning side the judges will be asked to designate the best speaker of the four. The winner will be presented the cup by a representative of Deta Sigma Rho Fraternity. DATES AND IUXS ARE TBBOO ATPROGRESSIVE Second All University Affair to Be Marked by Lack of Formality MAY 23 IS THE DATE SET Student Body Ticket is the Only Requirement For Admission “Date up early,” is another bit of superfluous advice to Trojans who expect to attend the secon dall-Univer-sity progressive dance which will be staged in five fraternity houses on Twenty-eighth Street, May 23. Other words which have no meaning in connection with this festive occasion are such phrases as “Collect a Tux,’ and “Get a fresh marcell and prers my evening gown,” for such things as evening gowns and Tuxedos are going to be absent quantities at the progressive dance. To be brief, formality simply will not exist for the dance is for Trojans only and not one wil be admitted without his student ticket while men at each one of the houses will be present to introduce those Trojans who are not already acquainted. Four of the five necessary orchestras have already been selected but the names are being withheld until the fifth, ft as been chosen, the men who will preside at each house have been notified of their responsibility and the committee has announced its intention of going dewntown today and purchase the favors. All this to prove that, plans are progressing- splendidly and details wil be announced later.
