FROSH EXECUTIVES MEET There will be a meeting of the <Yeshma« Executive Committee to-*ay at 2:15 in Bovard auditorium. CHAS. L. ESTAY SPEAKS AT CHAPE ‘Music and the Man’ Was Topic Of Business Man’s Address will be chosen within two weeks, according to Carleton Moorehouse. president. Membership is by invitation only, and limited in that, each active member may elect only one man. Members will be chosen from the leading members of the junior class. Only those men who have so far escaped the wiles of the fraternity pin hunters among the Greek sisterhoods on the campus are eligible. Shortly after the new men are initiated the club will act as host at one of their famous “brawls.” While the nature of the annual Bachelor offering in the Senior Road Show is being guarded as a surprise feature, it was learned that the act involves a trip into the dark, forgotten ages of fifteen years ago. The act will be entirely different from that presented last year when the “Campus Frolics of 1924’’ were burlesqued. Bachelors will broadcast a program in the near future over KHJ, the Los Angeles Times. The club, under the direction of Yanks Allen will appear on one of the weekly Southern California programs. Mr. Charles L. Estay, prominent business man of Los Angeles addressed the freshmen and sophomores Tuesday morning at the regular assembly hour. “Music and the Man," was the subject on which he spoke. Mr. Estay said, “Whenever I hear a symphony, opera, or even a song, I immediately think of the person behind it” He told a story of a notable Jazz rriter who upon looking up his family '.ree, found himself to be the sap. Mr. Estay then went on to name >ome of the world’s greates musicians nd explained that each in turn had become famous in spite of drawbacks. ‘Beethoven triumphed over poor circumstances and created joy for the jworld in the way of music, which Men-lelsohn retained the best possible ualities of heart and mind in spite of enormous wealth. Chopin's life was one of tragedy, yet he left some of our most loved music. Handel did not have his father's sanction or sympathy yet he too was a great composer.” Last of all, he mentionel Liszt and his compositions of rare beauty. The first duy of a musician is to work for the good of other men," said Mr. Estay. BACHELOR LUNCHEON Bachelors will meet for lunch at the Cozy Den, Thursday at twelve o’clock. It is necessary that all members be present as new members will be discussed at this time. SPEECH RECITAL The School of Speech recital in Touchstone Theater Monday aftrnoon was contributed by the class in Educational Dramatics. The following appeared in original character sketches: Frances Seamons Loraine Hurley, Emily Herbert, Ixniise McMichanl, Nevin Packard, Stevens Fargo, Meld-rem Bur rill, George Landers. Junior class dues are not corning in at the expected rate according to Red Haynes, treasurer o fthe class of ’26. The Junior Prom has been given and breaking a long custom .another big affair, the Junior^Senior dinner dance will also be given in the samie semester. This should assure the class of the co-operation of the officers and social committee said Haynes, and unless these dues are paid in this good faith will be unjustified. The dues this semester are only fifty cents, the regular dollar dues having been cut down to get a 100 per cent response. According to Red Haynes the same people, practically speaking, who paid up their last semester’s dues are paying this semester. The idea, according to the treasurer, is to get a 100 per cent response this semester with the lowered dues. It will be necessary to have a dues slip to attend the Junior-Senior dinner dance which will be one of the best functions of the campus year. The committee in charge of the collecting is composed of Red Haynes, treasurer, Revelle Harrison, Bill Hansen, Ronald Snavely, and Ronald Stev-ers. The feminine collectors are Evelyn Rohr, Evalyne Ross, Clare Kaufer, Jannie Lee Moore and Kay Potter. Co-operation is asked by this committee who are devoting their time to put this dues drive across. Four bits will do the trick and everyone in the class should contribute his share in order to run the affairs of the class for the remainder of the school year. Board of Trustees of University Not effecting the present location orC KleinSmid's work in the developing BIOLOGY HONOR SOCIETY CHOOSE NEW MEMBERS Twenty-two majors in the biology department were elected to membership in the Biology Honor society at the last meeting of the organization. Today at 4:15 in room 250 in the Old College the organization will meet with the new members to discuss the coming grunion hunt which the department of zoology has been planning. All those elected to the honor society are upper classmen. The following are now members: George Hall, Harvey Johnson, Mildred Ranney, Robert Rutherford, Stanley Cairncross, Lida Snodgrass, V.

President R. B. von KleinSmid is president of the Board of Regents of the new International University. This university was incorporated a year ago to carry on international and intercollegiate education. Its staff of instructors and officers will reflect international emphasis, as well as the regents and members of the student body. It is possible, according to a statement issued by President von Klein-Smid yesterday, that an affiliation arrangement may take place in the future between Southern California and the new university, but that this arrangement is not an immediate consideration. NO CAMPUS CHANGE The Board of Trustees of Southern California emphasize the fact that Southern California will undergo no change either in external or internal administration through President von of the new university. A report from the Board reads, ‘ Southern California will offer every courtesy possible. This of course, does not Involve any change in our personnel or campus policies. It merely means that we believe in international education and in President von KleinSmid’s idea of a school specially dedicated to the furtherance of that type of institution.” It is hoped that actual consrtuction of the buildings on the new Burbank site can be started within a year, but President von KleinSmid states that the construction details have not yet been decided upon. He says that Burbank was not approached on the subject of donating a site for the new university, but that prominent business men there offered the plot of ground which has been accepted. These men approached President von EtleinSmid several months ago, as did representa- Sports and Pleasures of Ancient Romans Will Reign Supreme AT COLISEUM Dance Will be Held in Basketball Pavilion During the Evening Members of the May Day committee were busy yesterday afternoon selecting maidens for the Greek frieze whieb is to be a feature of the May Day festival staged for May 15. The tryouts were held at 3:30 in tb€ President’s Parlors and although tbe participants were not definitely chosen at that time, the committee was pleaded that so many girls appeared for tbe tryouts. Each campus organization sent three of its prettiest members and the task of selecting a few was difficult. The Greek frieze is just one of tbe features planned for May Day. On thie day the sports and pleasures of tht tives from other communities that de- ancient Romans are pleasures of tht ancient Romans are to reign supreme sir^d to have the school located in or near their respective towns.

M. Fuller, of the Richfield Oil Company. Mr. Harold Proctor, noted tenor, and soloist of Temple Baptist Church was heard in two numbers, “If With All Your Hearts,” from Elijah, and also ‘The Lord is My Light.” Skeele accompanied Mr. Proctor on the organ. Dean Bruce Baxter in his introduc-toin of Mr. Estay talked briefly on music, calling it the true introducer of language, and spoke of song, as the interpretation of religion. FRESHMEN ANNOUNCE DANCE AT BETA PI HOUSE FRIDAY NIGHT Dates Are Discouraged; “Go Home Any Way You Like;” Admis-mission is Only Twenty-Five Cents A pleasant surprise to all freshmenCbe informal to the last degree. To be popular at the frosh hop on Friday night frosh co-eds are advised to come date-less and in sport attire. Frosh men are advised to come en masse from the fraternity houses, although the committee in charge did not make any specifications regarding the approved way of returning home after the dance. The fact that the admission charge is only one quarter, or two bits, in the parlance of those who pay the bill, is accounted for by the fact that a campus orchestra has been donated for the evening and that the Delta Pi house has also been turned over for the use of the frosh. Punch and a good time for that price of a quarter are guaranteed, however, by the freshmen who are working with Ray Hatfield, president, and Dorothy Moore, vice-president, to make the first of the hop series go over big. The coming Friday night is the date set for the dance, nine o’clock the hour, and the Delta Pi house at 1165 West Thirty-seventh place where Frosh are to get acquainted at their first informal dance. comes the announcement from vice-president Dorothy Moore and her social committee of the impromptu Freshman Hop to be held on Friday night of this week at the Delta Pi house. 1165 West Thirty-seventh place, admission a quarter.

"We want every frosh to understand the big idea and come out Friday. We'll promise a good time such ac you don’t often have a chance at. even for mor^ money.” NO DATES THERE That dates are discouraged and will be frowned upon, was the oontinued advice of the vice-presidenL who emphasized the fact that the dance will GRADUATE SCHOOL PLANS BUSY WEEKS Large Number of Students Hoping to Complete Requirements For M.
