The gymnasium was the scene of the final battles between the sophomores and the freshmen. Many forms of amusements took place before the evening was over, and many freshmen were glad that the battles didn’t last any longer. The first event on the program was the get-acquainted party, which was STANFORD GAME TICKETS ON SALE AT STORE MONDAY Sellout Anticipated For Annual Game With Palo Alto Team Anticipating a complete sellout, the Stanford-S.

This event will always be remembered by the freshmen who attended. as they were made to take off their shoes and socks before entering the fray. This handicapped them a great deal, for the bloody battle took place on polished hardwood floors. At midnight several freshmen were seen in the vacant lot across the street from the gym. It is said that they were lookinp for their shoes and socks and many of them were still hunting at sunrise this morning. The next event on the program was a barrel fight in the middle of the floor by a freshman and a sophomore. Each entrant was given a stick with a mat on the end of it so as to protect his opponent. A soccer contest with a medicine ball was staged in the middle of the floor by two picked teams from the ranks of the freshmen and sophomore classes. This was a unique affair, for it was the first time in the history of the school that a soccer game was staged with a medicine ball. Exhibition wrestling and boxing matches were held In charge of Coaches Anderson and Nichols of the phyisical education department. Mr. Marcus Beeks, a well known singer, gave three solos, and the events of the evening were closed with yells and songs led by "yell king” Burdette Henny. After the entertainment of the evening was over, all adjourned to the “Y” hut where free eats were given. sections are reserved for Stanford students and are the same as sold. Seats will go on sale at all the colleges and an equal chance will be given those off the campus to obtain tickets. The sale of tickets will be in charge of the student president at Dental College, and Mr. Whitney will see that the lawyers are supplied. The largest rooting section ever assembled in the Coliseum is anticipated by the rally committee fo rthe coming game. The large number of student activity books sold indicates that the students will be out in full force, while the enormous sale of tickets by the B. H. Dyas Company shows the interest taken by the general public. According to advance reports every seat in the Coliseum is expected to be sold one week before the game. Southern California students will use tunnel number 22 in entering the Coliseum and rooters’ caps will be the required head gear. Arnold Eddy assures anyone attempting to enter the rooting section without the regulation cap that they will be doomed to disappointment. NEW LAW BUILDING WILL OPEN FOR OCCUPANCY IN NOVEMBER Fireproof Library to Contain Fifteen Thousand Volumes Architecture of Building to Comply With Campus Plan With plans already in progress for the celebration of its opening, the new law building is rapidly nearing completion. The Los Angeles County Bar Association has evinced much enthusiasm, and has appointed a committee to work with a university committee concerning the formal opening of the new building. It is expected that the school will be ready for occupation by the first of November, and details as to the opening will be divulged later. The new building carries out the f same architectural scheme as the ad- TALK BY Wm TO BE FEATURE IN FRIDAY S RALLY Rally Committee Plans No End of Novel Entertainment E Baseball, Basket-ball and Track Games Are All Dated WILSON RELEASES DATES T L GIRLS GLEE CLUB TO HOLD TRY-OUTS Tryouts for all co-eds wishing to participate in the Girls’ Glee Club will be held at the College of Music building on Friday, September 25, and on Monday, September 28, according to Horatio Cogswell, professor of voice and directer of both the girls’ and men’s glee clubs of the university. Tryouts will begin at 3:30 in the afternoon and continue until 5 o’clock. Tests will consist of some sight readding and the singing of one piece with wThich the contestant is familiar. For this latter purpose, each girl is expected to bring a musical selection that she knows thoroughly. The first regular rehearsal of the Glee Club will be held at the College of Music on Wednesday, September 30, at 4 o’clock, and Tommy Wamp has had an accident and as a result his visit to the campus will be delayed until Tuesday.

The main entrance is from University avenue, and opens into a large lobby. On the right of the lobby are to be the offices of the Dean of the law school and his assistants, and on the left are five faculty offices. The law library is also on the main floor. On the second and third floors are the recitation and classrooms; the largest rooms are equipped with elevated seats and have a seating space for two hundred. A large assembly room, seating four hundred, has also been planned for the third floor. The show place of the law school will be its library, according to Dean Porter. Although not the largest on the coast, it is said to be one of the best equipped working law libraries. It has fifteen thousand volumes, including all state reports up to the national reports, nine sets of California reports, all selected case theories and the Trinity series, all of the United States court reports, a complete set of English court reports, practically all of the upper Canada reports up to the dominion law courts and all of the dominion law up to date, special sets of research books, two sets of corpus juris and the majority of the reading law reviews. Besides this, it includes the valuable Seldon Society reports and a large assortment of textbooks and dictionaries. To safeguard this valuable collection of volumes, the library has been made absolutely fireproof. The room itself will have a floor space of eight thousand square feet and will be furnished with an entirely new equipment of F SPEAKS TO ASSEMBLY Geoffrey Morgan Gives Talk on “What’s the Use?” DOORS ARE CLOSED Financial, Social and Cultural Advantage of College Shown was completed it wae too late to print the WAMPl S brilliant-hued jacket j chairs, tables and stacks The lobby is another distinctive feature of the building.

There are three reasons why education is worth while. “All speeches should have three parts. The ministers of the old days delivered their sermons in three parts. First, they took the text; second, they departed from it; and, third, they never got back to it.” Three advantages of higher education were then outlined by Mr. Morgan. “There is the financial advantage. Everyone needs more money, and to get more one must be worth more. Education cannot make a wise man out of a fool. It can’t put in what God left out but it can train you to attain greater skill. “There is the social advantage. Each day has three parts. If we work eight hours and sleep eight hours, we are likely to be meeting people eight hours. There is as much aristocracy in America as any other nation, but here our aristocracy is the aristocracy of brains.” Mr. Morgan emphasized, “and so we must train ourselves for social life as « w’ell as for a business career.” “We must also consider the cultural advantages. Life i« like a bank, the more you put in ,the more you can take out. The people who appreciate such places as Plymouth Rock and the Gettysburg battlefield are those whose history you know about. They have a capacity for appreciation.” Mr. Morgan said, in closing, “So let us see the use of education and make the most of it.” Specie’ music was furnished by Pro- Southern California’s last rally before Saturday’s big double-header football program with Whittier and Caltek will be featured by an address by Dr. James McCoy, alumnus of this institution. Dr. McCoy is not only much in demand as a speaker, but is also a prominent orthodontist in this city. He graduated from Southern California Dental College in 1906 and has since proved himself to have the interests of Troy at heart. According to Sam Gates, chairman, the rally committee has been hard at work preparing for Friday’s assembly. The committee is making an attempt to secure some popular campus orchestra to provide for the musical entertainment on Friday morning’s program. The big surprise of the year along musical lines has been obtained for a week from Friday. Members of the rally committee responsible for tomorrow’s program are Sam Gates, Kathleen Campbell, Pari Welch, Martha Wiggett, George Jordan, Art Syvertson, Eleone Truitt and Ormonde Grier. Golden Bears Here For Meet on March 20 Dual NEW LANDSCAPE FOR AD-BUILDING The weather man may well feel slighted, for one campus topic seems to have entirely supplanted the popular subject of unusual weather. The wisest senior must needs admit as great an ignorance as the little frosh, secure in the knowledge that he knows only what he is expected to know— nothing at all of what it is all about. The subject of the mystery has been growing in front of the Administration building ever since there was any place for it to grow. It or they are the ten palms whose removal has caused Schedules for three major sports with California and Stanford athletic teams were announced from the offices of Gwynn Wilson at a late hour last night. The schedules include dates in basketball, track and baseball for the 1925-26 seasons. It will be the first time in two years that the members of the Big Three will engage in the above • mentipned sports. They did not meet last season due to the “break." Southern California will open its basketball schedule in the big three at Berkeley when they meet the Bears on Jan. 15 and 16. The final game of the three game series will be played in the local gymnasium with California on Feb. 13. Stanford will be met at Palo Alto on Jan. 23 and on Feb. 5 and 6 in the S. C. gymnasium. The track season offers cinder fans two dual meets when the Trojans meet the Golden Bears here on March 20, and takes on Stanford at Palo Alto on April 3. Two three-game series will be played with each of the other two members of the Big Three. Califor nia comes here on arch 19 and 20, while the S. C. team will go to Berkley on March 8, following two games at Stanford on March 5 and 6. The Cardinals will be seen in the Coliseum on March 26. The news of the final drawing of the schedules came as a complete surprise to local fans. The complete Big Three schedule follows: BASKETBALL Jan. 15-16—Southern California at California.

The president gave up a trip to Europe in order to see about rearranging the campus in front of the administration building. Dr. von KieinSmid in collaboration with Mr. Frank Shearer, superintendent of parks, and Mr. W'arren Bovard, has planned to make the newer campus harmonize with that in front of the old college. There will be gravel walks, benches, and eventually shade trees, so that the students will not be forced into the street to supply targets for overly accurate motorists. Mr. Shearer came from Scotland and is an internationally known authority on landscaping. He at one time did some work for Andrew Carnegie. Through him the university is getting the new plants at wholesale and arranging for the uprooted palms to be used in exchange. A. W. S.

Everyone seems to have taken a lazy attitude toward his facial muscles, and broad grins, sweet smiles and other contortions of a jovial type aid in creating a spirit of friendship and unity upon the campus. Fraternity men and non-fraternity men, sophomores and freshmen, deans and students, and even rival sorority members greet each other in a way which proclaims to the world that, after all, they have out one allegiance—their alma mater.
