Hence the forthcoming number of the Wampus Cat (family name of Tommy, but answers to almost anybody who has a quarter in his hand) is prepared and dedicated to the further glory of the greatest class that the University of Southern California has ever known, and is yclept the Cradle Number. (Of course that means the Freshmen. Don’t be silly.) Says Tommy, “Every good little boy —or girl—who comes to school on Tuesday morning, November the eighteenth. with a nice, bright, shiny quarter in his or her pocket, can have a real, live Wampus kitty for his very own. But the little boys and girls must be very, very careful not to pull Tommy’s tail, because Tommy is a j sensative, temperamental, high-strung FELINNE, and he might scratch.” The Wampus is to print only a limited number which means that the little boys and girls must be around early in the morning indeed, or they will not get any nice little kitty, to take hom to Mama and Papa. But just to give evehybody a fair chance, Tommy will be on sale at all compus colleges, under the auspices of the Jun- Prexy Confers With Coolidge and Hughes According to a letter received from Washington, D. C., President von KleinSmid is enjoying his trip a great deal. While in ihat city he had a very pleasant conference with President Coolidge and Secretary Hughes. President * von KleinSmid left with his party for South America, on November 8. His boat companion is Secretary of Labor Davis. n pp f| I ID DEBATE SQUAD FINAL TRYOUTS GIVES NAMES OF MEMBERS Forty-Two Girls in This Year’s Club; Active Year is Planned RUTH SAMPSON IS HEAD Ray Brennan, debate manager .wishes to again remind embryo debators of the final tryouts for the squad to be held this afternoon in H 206.

There has been one ideal that all El Rodeo editors have worked ! toward, but for some reason or other, j that goal has never before been I reached.

The Held Throughout School Year Names of th forty-two members of the Women’s Glee Club of the University of Southern California were announced yesterday by Cora McCreery Smith, president of the club. Plans for an active year are being completed and a program is to be given in the near future, Mrs. Smith said. The programs this year are to be colorful and of variety, the president said, and Spanish and Indian numbers in costume are to be featured, accompanied by flute obligatos. Charles Lummis, an authority on California history and author of several books on the history of California, is working with the glee club in making the Spanish and Indian numbers true to history. A joint glee club party is to be staged this month, and plans are being made to have some social function “We are endeavoring argument and four for rebuttal. These are the final tryouts ,and the winners will be chosen for the 1924 Trojan debating squad. At the debating tryouts held yesterday to determine the U. S. C. representative to take part in the Southern California Conference extemporaneous contest to be held at Whittier College, November 21, Manuel Ruiz was chosen as 'having the most constructive argument and he will represent this school in the contest. The question, relative to the regulation of inter-collegiate athletics is one of great interest to everyone interested in the welfare of the schools, and Ruiz’s arguments were such as to warrant his selection. Other schools in the Conference include Occidental, Whittier, Redlands, Pomona, Caltech and the Southern Branch. “CAMPUS SCANDALS” TITLE OF YEAR’S EXTRAVAGANZA Leaders Declare Productions Are Greater Than Ever Before HANK McCANN DIRECTOR Cast of Sixty; Music by Jean Johnson, Are Some of Features ior Executive committee. , _ . , — .

HAWAIIAN FISH TO BE ON DISPLAY Through the courtesy of the Long Beach Aquarium, owned by Mr. Simons ,the Biology Department at U. S. C. has obtained a large and complete collection of Hawaiian fish. Mr. Simons receives these fish alive from the Hawaiian Islands and has given approximately six hundred specimens to U. S. C. the best interests of tho University as a whole be served at the expense of any particular unit if need When the final plans were drawn up, it was seen that the interests of all three Colleges—Law, Dentistry, and Liberal Arts—wTere helped by the new arrangement.. The details of the plans will be kept in the dark till the book comes out. Howfever, it has been learned that the general plans as set | forth in the “Gopher,” yearbook of the University of Minnesota, and in the “Badger” from Wisconsin, and the: “Cactus” from the University of i Texas, will be combined to produce | an entirely new arrangement . A part of the plans call for the professional fraternities to be photographed in tuxedos. This will include all the professional fraternities, both on and off the campus. The professional frats will be in a group together .headed by the Dental professionals. There is a chance of the Women’s professionals being taken in evening dress. All the fraternities will be in one part of the book, but the social will be kept separate from the honorary and the professional. BIG SENIOR SECTION The Seniors will all be in one part of the book—but they will be together in respect to the colleges and schools from which they come. According to the canvass that has been made, there will be nearly a thousand Seniors in the book.

COACH HENDERSON Executive Committee Givs Out Statement Showing General Attitude In response to numerous inquiries concerning the Student Body’s atti- j tude towrard the present athletic administration, the executive committee Tuesday night gave out the follow-1 ing statement: November 11, 1924. We, the Executive Committee of the , Associated Students of the University of Southern California, recognizing that Coach Henderson has brought the University of Southern California from a position of little importance in the field of sports to nation wide athletic prominence and recognizing that he has always stood for the highest ideals of manhood and sportsmanship do hereby go on record, as the official representatives of the undergraduate student body, as being unanimous in our support of Coach Henderson and his policies and we likewise state that we do not countenance any attempt to remove Coach Henderson from his position as director of Inter-collegiate Athle'tics. Executive Committee A. S. U. S. C. Signed, Ned Lewis, President. The local electrical engineering frtl- j ternitv asked recognition from tfic Executive committe for their petition to j Eta Kappa Nu, national engineering j Everything is in readiness for the great annual Extravaganza to be given in Bovard Auditorium December 12 and 13, to be known as the “Campus Scandals,” and those in charge .though not handing themselves bouquets, feel that the 1924 entertainment will be greater than ever before. The cast has been w'orking ever since school started to assure its success, and Ellsworth Ross, production manager, states that the demand for tickets is going to be so great this year that both performances will be given before packed houses. Being directed by Hank McCann, the students can feel assured of some high grade entertainment and Hank promises, with his cast of nearly sixty, to provide a big show. Forty-eight Trojan co-eds have been practicing for the chorus and, even though the production will not be given for a month yet, the rehearsals 'have revealed thfit everyone knows his or her part to perfection. A number of musical scores have been arranged by Jean Johnson, musical director and, though the orchestra has not yet been definitely se- * lected, a good biand of syncopation is promised. In order to avert the disappointment experienced by many who last year could not get tickets, the management has decided to produce the Extravaganza on two conscutive# nights, and this wil naturaly enable them to sell the tickets for less. The pasteboards, all of which will be reserved, will be sold at 50 and 75 cents, which is the lowest price ever charged for a production of this type on the U. S. C. campus. Just when they will go on sale has not yet been decided, but it is known, says the management, that they wont last long ,so all who plan to attend should watch for the announcement relative to ticket sales. This will no doubt be made in a few days.

For those not familiar with it, this is a traditional affair put on annually by the Cosmopolitan Club of the university; it was originally a harvest festival but has I since become a festival of the nations. Each national group on the campus presents a sketch or stunt featuring national customs.

President Howard White wants all members to be sure and be there and those w'ho desire to become members. “Although the local Campus Chest fund missed its quota by the substan tial margin of almost $2,200, it is some what refreshing to learn that we are not alone in our grief,” said Fred McAllister, chairman of the first Campus Chest fund, in a recent statement. “It comes to our ears that a similar fund conducted by our friends of the Northern Branch, last year, fell under the quota by a most overwhelming margin of some $7,000, thus eclipsing our late misfortune.” It is said that the cause for the failure of the recent drive was the lack of enthusiasm on the part of the various committees which carried on he drive. This is.particularly true of the Sophomore executive committee, is reported to have made a truly descredit-J able showing, for the class it represented. “As it is imperative that wre raise! the required amount of money this year, it is possible that the drive will i be reopened at the beginning of the second semester as a final effort to reach the somewhat distant goal, and it is to be hoped that those bodies which w'ere so far in the rear in the last drive, whether through misfortune or lack of energy, will be the first ones to hit the top,” said McAl- J lister.
