VOLUME III FRIDAY, ‘AUGUST 8, 1924 NUMBER 12 WORLD CITIZENSHIP IS U. S. GREATEST NEED Amcrica Fitted to Take World Lead Says Dr. Devine “We have no greater task today than to prepare ourselves for world citizenship,” stated Dr. E. T. De-vine, editor, lecturer, and social worker in his address “E Pluribus Unum” given in chapel Tuesday. “Wife must develop the capacity for /world citizenship which in its ktttadest sense means no conflict, no stility, no domination of one na-ion by the other. The United States is histrically ad geographically fitted to take the lead. U. S. TOO SECTIONAL “Americanization does not mean making over Italians, Mexicans, Hebrews, Chinese, Japanese and other nationalities into Americans, suddenly. In every generation we have succeeded better in Americanization than the preceding because of gradual assimulation. Our great fault is over emphasis on local affairs as distinct from national. Our nation is built of local loyalities—states. Children are and should be brought up to feel a deep sense of loyalty. California is too sectional. There is no place in the world but California. WAR CLEARED VISION “During the war, most men acquired the ability to discern things, and now are able to see into France, England, Italy. China, Japan, and by standing on tip toe even into 'Mexico! Who knows where the next archduke may be assasinated? We do know that clarified public opinion will prepare us for the extension of our motto ‘E Pluribus Unum’,” concluded Dr. Devine.

CAFETERIA TO BE REMODELED TO MAKE NEW LIBRARY ROOMS Negotiations With Boos Brothers for a University Lunch Room Under Way, Says Mr. Bovard The cafeteria, which for the last 15 years has occupied the basement floor in the old college tniHdmg, .is to be remodeled into a collateral reading room Tor the library. The reading room will be ready for use by the pening of the fall semester. This announcement was made Wednesday -—--c by Warren B. Bovard. The cafeteria under the capable T L Advertising is Discussed by Miles Allen Fifty s:udenis and the faculty of the Metropolitan College or Commerce, were feted at a commerce luncheon aranged by Miss Sionich, vice-social chairman of the club, at the Brcadwav deoar ment grill. Wednesday. MILES ALLEN SPOKE i\!i’es AHen. advert sing manager of 1 e Crescent Creamery Company was the speaker. His subject was, “the thing advertising” which was well received. He gave a general outline of advertising; the importance of it and its place in the field of commerce Following Mr. Allen’s talk. Rolland Parker, president of the school of commerce and business administration, spoke briefly on the co-operation need-3d in perinea.ing such feeling and riendship necessary for the progress "f bo’h organizations. He assured the members of the Metropolitan division that his organization is ready at all times to assist them in any way and asked that such co-operaton be accorded his organization. MR. WOODS PRESIDED Thomas Woods, Jr., president of the Metropolitan club, presided at the 'unchc-on. He stated that it was the lub’s intention to have various forms -f entertainment for its members and, from time to time, noted men of the commercal field would be asked to address the club on the different phases of commerce. Those expressing themselves said that they had spent ?. pleasant and practical hour and would look forward to the next ‘‘lunch hour.” management of Mrs. M. A. Gans, is closing its most successful year. The largest da'lv attendance it has ever had has been during the present summer session. “The university administration regrets that it has been compelled to use this space for school purposes,” said Mr. Bovard yesterday, “but the library has become so crowded that more room is an absolute necessity. NO CAFETERIA NEXT YEAR Because of the lack of space the university will not conduct another cafeteria in any building, but investigations are being made looking toward the advisability of opening a lunch room in some building near the campus. It is interesting to note that the University of California, Southern Branch, is losing its cafeteria also. A few years ago it was considered a necessity for an educational institution to have an eating place on its campus. Such a place is still desirable, but. on account of the number of small lunch and tea houses that are built around a college campus, it is not necessary. On the other hand the greatly increased enrollment in the Los Angeles institutions of higher learning has put room for class and library purposes at a very high premium. CAFETERIA SECONDARY **T am sorry the university will have to give up its cafeteria but students always must remember that all other interests are secondary to the educational program.” The business office has been cor-respondinging with Boos Brothers in reference to opening a cafeteria near the campus next semester. LOST AND FOUND DEPT. HAS MANY ARTICLES “If you lost a good pen, you won t see it again, but if it was a poor one, you’ll find it here,” was the announcement made yesterday at the information office, home of lost and found artcles. And judging by appearances, all the poor lost pens in Los Angeles have found their final resting, place in that .ffice drawer Eut they have plenty of company, because there are innum erab’e pencils, gold ones, silver ones, nd iust p’ain wood ones—not t© speak of a whole box full of brooches, lather tacky, to be sure, but useful notwithstanding. Then, there are hats, caps, and vraps galore. Even a few stray furs have crept into this refuge. Some MISS IVES TO TAKE DEGREEJN CHICAGO i Miss Ives, of the French depart- j I ment. will leave next deek for Chi- | cago, where she will study French for her Doctor of Philosophy degree, under Doctor Lancaster of the John Hopkins University. Miss Ives has been at the Univer-sity of Southern California four years, and received her Master of Arts and Bachelor of Arts degrees here. Miss Yong Honored In honor of Miss Soong Moy Yong, a junior at U. S. C.. a handkerchief shower was given at the home of Mrs. Ella McMath Tuesday afternoon. Miss Yong came to the university two years ago from Singapore and has just completed her pre-medical work. She plans to enter the medical school at Ann Arbor. Michi-scared young freshman conveniently \ pan, and the shower was given as a dropped his report card in order to farewell party, avoid unpleasant revelations, and this, together with a check book and four tarnished compacts, presage of four shiny noses, bear witness to other and happier days. Last of all, the lost and found department bears a peculiar resemblance to a branch library—except that it has more books. Every branch of earn in? is represented. Since knowledge is contained in books, one is confronted with the lamentable fact that U. S. C. students are in the habit of losing a great deal of knowledge The custodian of the department asks that students who are losing sleep over long-lost articles to inquire at the information office, because a happy reunion might be effected. Presidents Office Force Compiling- List ■President’s office workers are compiling a complete list of all fraternities and organizations on the campus. They are asking for the names of the presidents of all organizations together with their phone numbers and addresses. Garnrna Kps Give Dance Gamma Epsilon fraternity gave the oniy all-school dance of the summer session. August 6. at their house. 1280 West Adams, which students from both Universities attended. It was a flannels and sport dress affair.
