Seventeen School Days Left of Semester t(ic South California <JAN Sherwood Eddy Speaks First Tomorrow Volume XVI Los Angeles, California, Tuesday, January 6, 1925 Number [INTERNATIONAL DEBATE HELD I IN AUDITORIUM NEXT WEEK Prohibition Subject of Debate Between Southern Califor-I nia-Oxford; Mayor Cryer To Preside At Affair RELIGION SCHOOL TO HEAR MALIN JUNIOR FARCE TO PACK AUDITORIUM When Oxford Colley of England sends her representatives to this coun-I try on January 15 to debate the team presented by the Univrsltv of Southern I California on the subject. Resolved: That this house is opposed to the spirit of prohibition, the interested public will have an opportunity of witnessing the most thrilling forensic contest enacted in the West for a number of years. I Each team is considered as the most argumentative machine that its respec-I ive college has been able to produce this year, and it is onl' by dint ot the I intensest drilling and coaching possible that it has been whipped into condition for the meeting in Bovard Auditorium; Ion the night of January 15. The event will be looked upon by I most people as the airing of the opinions held by the thinkers of each na tion represented and for that reason wil! be exceptionally interesting. The [material will necessarily have to be taken from newspaper editorials, and current magazines which are in reality only mirrors of the thoughts of the nation’s thinkers. The subject. Resolved: That this house is opposed to the principles of prohibition, is interesting for the reason that both nations do not have prohibition. and that the ti-am represen-ing the nation having it is arguing in favor, and the team representing the nation not having prohibition is arguing on the negative side. This fact will not only give the debaters more material hut will give the people of each nation an idea of why the people on the other side take their stand regarding prohibition. It is also interesting because of the way in which it is stated. In England, all debates are judged by the decision of the entire house instead of the decision rendered by two or three preappointed judges, therefore the wording of the question. The personnel of the British team will be Malcolm MacDonald, son of Ramsay MacDonald, the former premier of Great Britain. J. C. Woodruff, and H. C. Hollis. This team is said to be the very best in the entire British Empire as it was chosen from among the 200 aspirants to the trip to the United States as represetatives of Oxford College, and as Oxford Col- (CONTINUED ON PAGE FOUR) Pat Malin graduate of'the University of Pennsylvania, will speak to the next meeting of the School of Religion club on Thursday, January 8 in the Y Hut at 7:30 P.

STORE SPEECH SCHOOL GIVES NEW PLAY WveraJ plays will be Reduced by i students of the School of Speech of the University of Southern California this month. Miss Tacie Mae Hanna, i in charge of the class in high school dramatics, plans to present four one-act plays on the evening of January 16 at the Touchstone Theater. The plays include one by Michael J. Phillips, who is expected to be present at the production. Miss Hanna, who specializes in work for teachers of higli-school dramatics, will supervise. A group of students, directed by Miss Florence Hubbard, will produce, several one-act plays before the Santa! Paula W’oman's Club on January 19.. One of the plays, Gilbert Canan’s ( "Everybody's Husband”, will be the work of Zeta Phi Eta dramatic sorority. “The Queen's Messenger” by J. Hartley Manners, is to be given by the class in advanced dramatics. Reservation Requests Already Being Received For Seven Keys to Baldpate The demand for seats for the Junior play, “Seven Keys to Baldpate”, to be presented January 22, has already begun, according to Ell worth Ross, production manager. Although the tickets have not yet been placed on sale, reservations are already pouring in. Announcement of the opening of the ticket sale at the Associated Students Store and at Wurlitzer’s downtown, will be made at an early date. Mr. Ross attributes the early rush for tickets to the direct mail advertising methods employed, and to the posters placed in various clubs and public libraries of the city. The cast for the production have been rehearsing throughout the holiday season to insure a perfect presentation of George M. Cohan's mystery melodrama , and are making rapid progress, according to-Miss Florence Hubbard, who is directing the play. The play itself needs no introduction, having proved one of the best that Cohan has done. It is essentially a “thriller”, and the immediate success which greeted its initial presentation on Broadway brought forth a host of similar mystery plays, such as "The Bat”, “The Cat and the Canary”, and “The Rear Car”. “Seven Keys to Baldpate” is held by critics to be a model thriller .holding the interest in a seemingly impenetrable mystery ,and giving occasional comedy relief through the medium of clever dialogue. Five Dollars Set As Limit For Checks; Checks Will Be Inspected Due to the loss of approximately $1000 during the last month on bad checks passed at the students store Dean, IA Fisk, manager, has inaugurated a new rule which will protect both the students and the store. From now on, no checks of more than 5 dollars will be cashed, and these only with the O. K. of Mrs. Poetker in the ticket booth. “This ruling had to be made”, states Mr. Fisk, “as the store was losing great sums of money every week. We would be glad to continue cashing larger chacks as in the past, but it is impossible for us to go on losing money.” Mr. Fisk further stated that there were not only bad checks from outsiders but, a number of students as well. Mrs. Poetker has also opened an information bureau in the store where, she will answer all questions pertaining to the school and campus. GIVEN NEW DEGREE A cable gram received from President von KleinSmid brings the information that the honorary degree of Philosopher of Humanities was conferred on him by the National University of Chile. during his short visit at that institution. He was also elected president of the educational division of the Pan-American Scientific Congress meeting at Lima. Peru, to which he went as representative of the United States. Thirty million pounds of yarn, valued at $27,000,000 were brought into this country last year.

WANN Dr. Wann conducted the third meeting of the course of free lectures on contemporary leaders of literary thought, held the week before vacation. “Revolt From the Village in American Fiction” was the title of the lecture. Dr. Wann sketched briefly the change in attitude of writers from the idealization to the revolt of the village and its life. He took up the period of the complacent attitude toward the village, wherein the simple town life was pictured as a thing of beauty, citing Goiismith’s “Deserted Village” as typical. The revolt, led by American authors, began with Edgar Lee Masters' “Spoon River Anthology.” Selections from Sinclair Lewis’ “Mainstreet” and “Babbitt” were read as examples of the change. He also gave extracts from ihe “Miss Lulu Bett" and “Faint Perfume” of Zona Gale. Professor Cooke will deliver the fourth lecture of the series this afternoon at 2:30 in room H. 206. His subject will be on Joseph Conrad entitled “Joseph Conrad as Interpreter of Human Character.” Everyone interested is invited to attend the meeting and | those having off-campus friends who , care to come are urged to bring them, : as the lectures are open to all. SHERWOOD EDDY WILL SPEAK HERE International Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. Will Appear Wednesday and Thursday in Chapel Sherwood Eddjr, distinguished International Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. will be the featured speaker in chapel Wednesday and Thursday. Mr. Eddyr is a Yale graduate. Willard Schurr, president of the Y. M. C. A heard Mr. Eddy at Asilomar and gave a few sidelights on his character and achievements. “Mr. Eddy’s father was a very wealthy engineer and Sherwood fully intended following his profession. A decided change in his character caused him to devote his life to philanthropic work and when his father died, his mother, his two brothers and himself devoted ihe interest from the capital of the business to charitable purposes." Hi- is a most fascinating speaker, according to Mr. Schurr. His carriage is ordinary but when he begins talking his vivid personality and intenseness in his theme causes the listener to allow himself no distraction other than the speaker’s trend of thought. Mr. Eddy ha? been a missionary in India and China. He is especially interested in youth movements all over the worl i and in Universal Peace. Y. W. C. A. TO HEAR MRS. EDDY SPEAK PRE-LEGALS WILL HOLD SEMI-ANNUAL ELECTION Pre-Legal students of the University will hold their last regular meeting for the semester Wednesday evening at 7 o’clock in room 206, Hoose Hall.

Purst, prominent downtown j lawyer and attorney will relate some of the most interesting of his experi-i ences in the legal field, to the mem-I bers of the society. | Officers for next semester are to be elected at this meeting and plans will I be completed for the big annual banquet which is scheduled on the twen-| tyT-first of this month. All political science and history students are invited to come out for the special speaker. Mrs. Sherwood Eddy, as speaker at the five o'clock discussion group of the Y. W. C. A. on Thursday afternoon, will present an added attraction to the usual interest of the weekly meeting.

Plans for Newspaper Day will be completed at the second staff meeting of the semester to be held in the Trojan office at 12:10 today. Plans for a staff reorganization will also be discussed. “If Newspaper Day is to be the success it has been in past years it will be necessary for every member of the Press Club and Trojan staff to cooperate,” said Marquis Busby, editor of the Trojan. "Although the meeting is important, it will be a brief one so that all members may be present.” NEWSPAPER DAY INVITATIONS SENT Eighty High Schools Invited To Annual Newspapermen's Gathering Invitations have been sent to eighty Southern California high schools and to fifty editors of leading Southern California daily papers to be the guests of the University of Southern California at the third annual newspaper day, January 15.

Newspaper Day has been regarded as one of the red letter days on the Southern California Campus, and the committee plans that this shall be no exception. EIGHT WEARERS OF CARDINAL AND GOLD CLOSE GRID CAREER University of Missouri Tigers Go Down To Defeat in 20-7 Score in Post-Season Game * Christmas Day Playing the same brand of football that made the U. S. C.-Syracuse contest one of the greatest inter-sectional games ever staged, the Trojan Varsity submerged the University of Missouri Tigers under a 20-7 score, on Christmas Day and brought to close one of the Trojan's most successful gridiron seasons. The Missourians, a team of no little importp.nee in mid-western football circles, and conqueror of Chicago, champions of the Big Ten gridiron conference, proved a representative squad, but more than met their match in the rejuvenated Trojan machine.

Headed by “The greatest Trojan of them all,” Captain Johnny Hawkins, the graduating players played the final game of their career. No better passing has ever been witnessed in the Coliseum, than that of Big Chief Newman, who shot his last forward pass to Hayden Phythian, who also made his last touchdown for his Alma Mater. The plunging of Johnny Riddle, and end address of author is enclosed, should accompany the manuscript. The pen name should appear on the manuscript and envelope. Critics of recognized ability" will be invited to a program in Touchstone Theatre in March when the Apolliad will offer the work of the artists for criticism. Admittance to the first performance will be by invitation only. Dr. Gaw, Tacie Mae Hanna and Miss Elizabeth Yoder will be glad to see people interested in submitting work and to give further information. “Dont fail to put the finishing touches on your creative effort and submit it this week, ’says Miss Yoder of the School of Speech. ‘ From present indications we shall have ample material for an excellent program. It is the plan to have students of the School of Speech present the numbers. In preparing the program we shall work with the authors. We anticipate a delightful experience for us all.” It was Dr. Gaw. an enthusiastic supporter of this movement, who suggested the name “Apolliad.” He says it is a tribute to Apollo who was quite some creative genius in his day. This movement to give creative art a new impetus in the university is offering an excellent opportunity to students in that critics capable of appreciating the merit of the offering | will be present, successful a firs terial offered will be publish annual event established. Coach Elmer C. Henderson, and bis capable staff of assistants, Bill Hunter, Leo Calland, and “Sturzy’’ Sturzenegger, presented a remodeled football machine in the Trojjans closing games. The sqquad was an entirely different one than that which started the 1924 season, and their playing, replaced them as one of the country’s big football products. Opening the season with an overwhelming 78-6 victory over the California Tech Varsity, the Trojan players, fell into a slump, the following week, and were only able to sqqueeze over a 14-0 win on the Pomona College crew. The latter team, however proved to be one of the best of the minor colleges and won the Southern California College Conference with a clean slate. PH. D.
