Nearly 23.000 people saw the visitors, under Charley Erb. former Bear quarterback, score the first touchdown about ten minutes after the game started. However, the final score was 21 to 7, in favor of Hawkins and U. Coach Elmer Henderson sent in his 9 second stringers to start the game. They didn't do so bad for the first few minutes and even threatened to score when Eddie Green attempted a place kick from Nevada’s 32 yard line. A pass. Green to Phythian had made 23 yards a few seconds before. Eddie missed his attempt by several feet. Otto Anderson and Harrison, rival punters, were getting off some pretty sixty yard kicks in the first quarter and the Sagebrushers got the first break when Eddie Green muged a high spiral from Harrispn’s toe. Grid-ley recovered on the Trojans’ 26 yard line. A U. S. C. penalty and several line plunges brought the ball up to the 12 yard line. Henderson had began tf> warm up his first stringers.

W'hen the visitors reached the 12 yard line, the U. S. C. varsity went in. They held the Wolves to several yards in three downs but on the fourth attempt, the Nevada fullback, Allen passes a short decisive flip to Gutter-on and the little giant scored. Allen converted. The period soon ended with Nevada leading. ing to information released by Executive Secretary Stonier's office, yesterday. Committees have been selected and a tentative program is under way. The program, which will be elaborately arranged for two day's activities, is expected to be announced in the immediate future.

This is an important meeting for our class, so we expect every sophomore to be i present.” Wednesday, Dr. Walter Thomas Layton, well known editor of tiie Ix>n-don Economist, will give an address to the upper division students on the •Reconstruction of Central Europe Under the League of Nations.” Dr. Layton has come to America to give a series of talks on problems of universal interest. Under the direc- ■ tion of the Institute of International Education he has arranged his schedule to include all important centers throughout the country. On arriving in the east, Dr. l^ayton will attend the Academy of Political Science in New York, after which he will lecture in eastern colleges prior to sailing for England. Band Music, Yelling, An Act by Harry Hall, Among Features of Rally Big bears, little bears, tall bears, short bears, in fact, the whole bear family, and in particular those bears which hibernate in Berkeley, are to be operated on. sung about, yelled at, and generally discussed in a mammoth rally to be held tomorrow night at 7:15 in Bovard Auditorium. The Berkeley “fuzzy ones” have been the paramount subject at U. S. C since the beginning of the semester, and they are to keep up the* good work by being the subject on Wednesday night. This will be the last rally before the big “hangup" on Saturday in Berkeley, and it promises to be a "bear" of a rally according to Don Cameron, Chairman of the Ital y Committee, and his co-workers. The U. S. C. Band will be there \ with all horns “on deck' to show j some of “their stuff" before leaving j for the game. U. S. C.'s Glee Club j is scheduled to help out in the singing. Hank McCann and his two “sup- j porters," mainly, Burdett Henny and : Paul Elmquist, are to be around with ; “bells on,” but coats off. to put the J Trojan rooters through their last J I workout before the game. They prom- j I ise that only whispers will be in vogue j on the Campus Thursday. Hank also J promises a “iwow” of a talk. Harry Hall, of the School of Speech and a professional jigger, will ! loosen up his feet in some of his in-j comparable dances. California is to be operated on to-j morrow night as well as on Saturday. ! | Itl is a deep dark secret just how this ■' is to “come off” according to the com-1 mittee, but they claim it will be done i ; right on the stage, and that the operation will demonstrate that the bear contains more than a growl. i Coach “Trojan” Henderson will say : his last “bit” to the student body- in I what is promised to be a “duck your heads" speech. He aims to tell “the I boys” what’s what about the Cali-! fornia game and his Trojan team. The Rally Committee has been centering its work on the rally tomorrow ! night, and according to Don Cameron, “Every Trojan, adherent, man or ! woman, will be on hand Wednesday | night. They have to be, because this j is the last time the Bear will be ; howled about at U. 'S. C. until he ! adorns a Trojan spear sometime Sat-I urdav P. M. If you can't ride to the rally, then walk; but BE THERE.” ! Speed will be our motto, and we prom-| ise no dull minutes. If you have a date, break it. U. S. C. needs you!” The North side of the lower floor in the auditorium will be reserved for the Dental Student Body, while Law Students will occupy the South wing. Liberal Arts followers will swarm the rest of the space. All Trojan Knights will turn out for CAMPUS CHEST The Campus Chest is an organization of Campus wide scope which brings together charitable, relief and we'fare agencies in a more closely knit program of relief and welfare work, which will cnee a year, raise funds to which the student body of the University of Southern California contributes what it desires io give for charity, relief and welfare work. The Campus Chest F'und will le distributed among institutions and agencies of the campus to bring re-ief to the needy, aid to dependent studen:s, and to promote good on the campus. The Campus Chest will develop through the entire University cooperation between the student.* and the welfare agencies. The Campus Chest Commit; ee. a sub . ommittee of the Executive Committee of the Associated Student Body of the University of Southern California, has passed on all :he budgets of the relief agencies asking help from the Chest and granted each agency the imeunt that tie committee felt the agency deserved. The total goal i.s to be $5,500. The Campus Chest insures justice—like an all comprehensive s: a!e—the Campus Chest estimates the worth of each agency, balances values with budgets, gives each agency a just share and then weighs cur obligations fairly. It insures a square deal for everybody. It makes sure tha; everyone gets a square deal; that worthy organizations will be supported and that ~ isted energy will be eliminated. The Campus Chest is absolutely the only drive for funds to be made this year. All other tag days and drives are being done away with completely. Every official of the University is in sympathy with the movement for the protection of the student body of the University of Southern California.

Bernard Brennan, president of D. S. R., former captain of the squad, and now a student at Law school, has had several years’ experience in Trojan debating and has taken part in 21 j collegiate debates, in 18 of which he was successful. Bill Barber, this year's captain, member of Delta Sigma Rho, president of the Freshman class at Law and otherwise prominent in school actiities, has taken part in 21 debates, winning 16. It is expected by Brennan and Coach Nichols that the auditorium here will be packed, and the fact that there will be no admission charged should find every seat filled. Not only will students be on hand, but a great many outside voters have planned to attend, as the affair is to be held on the night before the national election. AT MUSIC RALLY Students Hear First Records of Trojan Band Last Friday After Drive Opens; Thousand Dollars Subscribed Yesterday By CATHERINE POTTER Within one hour after the opening of the Campus Chest Drive the Metro-j politan College, newest of the University colleges, subscribed 100 per cent | and the total subscriptions from all colleges approximated over $1,000, according to the report made by Fred McAllister, chairman of the drive With-! in one hour these organizations also contributed 100 per cent, the Varsity Football team, the Bachelors, Delta Delta Delta. Alpha Sigma Delta, Delta Pi and the President's office. Although the committees are working hard, Fred McAllister says that pletlges are not coming in as they should, and those ^that do come in are usually small pledges, such as $1.00 and some one contributed only fifty cents. “The goal of $5,500 will never be reached with one dollar pledges,” said Fred. “And if the campaign fails this year we will return to the old habit of teasing weekly for money hy means of tag days, sales of hard fudge and soft taffy and stale pies..’’ APPROPRIATIONS MADE The appropriations of the goal of the campaign has been made and will be divided as follows: Y. M. C. A., $200; Y. W. C.-A., $1000; Student Friendship Fund, $500: American Red Cross, $10; miscellaneous (direct stu-| dent benefit), $500; and all other j .'mall organizations, $500. Mondav afternoon a huge thermom- I eter appeared on the campus and the “mercury" which represents the money in the chest rises at each contribution. The bell, purloined from Gamma Epsilon house also tolls to represent the sadness of the giver. At ten o'clock today the Gamma Epsilon orchestra will play and President von KleinSmid will address the students in assembly for the last time before his trip to the Pan-American Scientific Congress, at Lima, Peru. Wednesday at ten the music will be provided by the Theta Sigma Nu orchestra and the chapel address will te made by Dean Waugh, dean of the College of Liberal Arts. LAW BACKS DRIVE Ray Brennan, from Law, reported yesterday at noon that the College of Law was supporting the drive well, and similar reports came in from Genevieve Mulligan, College of Speech; Harold Doughcr. College of Commerce; Burdette Ives, College of Engineering: John Griffin, College of Dentistry; Mary Taylor, College of Music, and Phil Nash, College of Pharmacy. Pictures for the Las Angeles Times of the booth and some of the workers were taken yesterday.

The decision to give a mystery play marks a comparatively new kind of dramatic presentation on this campus and Ellsworth Ross, production manager of the play, is anxious to have the rehearsals begin as soon as possible in order that this attempt may be a big success. Rehearsals are to start next week, he said, and all part? must be chosen at once. “Golly, I gotta scrape up two bucks between now and November eighth somehow!” These and similar comments were heard all over the campus after Friday's rally, at which Abe Lyman's Cocoanut Grove Orchestra dispensed “mean music”—so mean, in fact, that it was witlh difficulty that the students were convinced that “that was all there was—there wasn’t any more.” But this is starting at the wrong end of the story. The first musical rally of the year opened witfi several selections by the Trojan Band. Following this the first records that the band has made for the Hollywood Recording Company were played in assorted keys and tempos by a somewhat balky and erratic Victrola., When the instrument was at last under control the numbers were greeted enthusiastically. And then—Abe Lyman and his kings of syncopation, who are to play for the U. S. C.-Stanford dance the night of the Stanford game. Popular hits ranging from *'12th St. Rag” to “Savannah” were rendered in a style that is all Lyman's own, and responded to with applause peculiar to an auditorium full of college students.

Special music has also been arranged. Mr. Cole’s speech is meant to be as a sequence to the talk given at the last meeting by Judge Hahn, who spoke last Wednesday on the present conditions and problems existing among boys.

Friday’s Trojan announced that these results would be published by the Los Angeles Examiner. However, Willard Brown, president of the Pre-Legal Society, which conducted the straw ballot, recently made this statement: “The Examiner neglected to publish the results of our ballot because it would wreck their nicely balanced LaFollette lead. LaFollette has been a consistent leader in the Examiner straw' ballot column.
