I Annual Senior Chapel Observed Wednesday Southern Daily California Trojan Revote in Elections of Classes Held Today oJumc XVI Los Angeles California, Tuesday, June 2, 1925 Number 118 EV0T1NG ALLOWS NO DOUBLE VOTES Today’s Class Election Will Be Air-Tight To Insure Fairness IIINIOR <vFNIOR SNAP ANNOUNCE PROGRAM OF EVENTS JUniUI\-OLHlUf\ OiW FOR ig25 COMMENCEMENT WEEK WILL BE HELD ON JUNE 17 Witfc an air-tight plan formulated that ie insured to prevent any double voting, the Election Committee, announces that tbe lower class elections are to by held today. Polls will be situated at the two box offices in the Arcade of Uie Administration buiuding, and will be open from 9 to 3 o’clock, according to Don Watson, chairman ol the KlecUon Comniitte. Student Body tickets will be required of ever> voter, aeording to a statement made by Mr. Watson. The cards will be punched on a different number than the one used in the recent student body elections. This will make a double vote impossible, ac-cordimg to Mr. Watson. Trojan Knights will be on duty to prevent any electioneering being carried on within the Arcade. Electioneers will be required to stay outside of the Arcade, as was the case in the general elections. It was due to their influence near the polls, it is said, on the voters which resulted in Friday’s fraad. No fclnm.- for the void election on Friday has been placed on any person «r gronp, It is announced; but that the re-voting is a culmination of the eo-called “political machines” at Southern California. Mr. Watson says that Friday’s results has awakened the student body to the need of more careful direction of future elections here. New ballots have been printed and stand about the same as those used on Friday, excepting directions have been added to them on how to vote the preferential system. This system is efficient and avoids the necessity of holding a primary when it is carried out oorrectly. The directions are intended to do away with the small amonnt of confusion which has accompanied its use here. Candidates who ran in Friday’s election are still on the ballots, and no changes in the eligible students have been made. Three hundred and fifty ballots have been printed for today’s elecUon in expectation of a record class election vote being cast. FEW EL RODEOS PLACED ON OPEN SALE TODAY Students who did not subscribe to the HI Rodeo, but wish a copy may purchase them while a limited supply lasts at the Associated Students’ Store according to Myrl Ott, manager oi he publication. Less than fifty copies were printed above the amount subscribe, and it is expected that there will be a sell-out by tomorrow. Those who hare subscribed for the El Rodeo bnt hare not yet called for the book must do so before June 10. Books remaining after that date will be sold regardless of subscriptions. “Tliere are still organizations owing for their pages in the El Rodeo,” said Ott. Gamma Epsilon Is Busy Cleaning House for the Event There are Snaps and Snaps. There are the Snaps you make to attract the prof.’s attention, there are the Snaps that hold little girls’ dresses together; there are Snaps made of rubbers, guaranteed to produce a yell: but what Snap can compare with the Junior-Senior Snap to be staged at the Gamma Ep house, June seventeenth? Webster very inconsiderately forgot to include the definition of thi* kind of Snap in his category, an omission the Trojan hastens to rectify. ‘ Snap —an informal dance, without dates, jazzy music, good punch, and an enjoyable time guaranteed to all. Usually limited to Seniors, but includes Juniors on special occasions.” And June 17 is a special occasion. Finals will be over, activities of Commencement will will be almost over. Ivy Day exercises wil be completed and the next afternoon will be Commencement Services, lt is the last time, probably, that the Seniors will have a chance to meet socially before they leave U. S. C. to conquer greater fields. Oh, yes, all the Seniors will be on hand at the Gamma Epsilon lodge promptly at eight-thirty. And the Juniors—well, it is the first time the class of '2G has been invited io one of these exclusive affairs. They will be there en masse, whether they come for a good time, to celebrate the close of school, to wish the Seniors good speed, from curiosity, or from a desire to find out how to conduct their own Snaps next year. Anyway, all the upper class men will be there, and the Gumma Eps are cleaning house in honor of the great affair. The living rooms will be cleared for dancing and the veranda will also be turned over to this amusement. Two of the greatest attractions will be the special refreshments that the committee promises, and the latest syncopations from Chet Beard's versatile four. Hours for this last Snap have been changed to 8:30, and closing at 10:30. Dean and Mrs. Karl T. W'augh, and Professor and Mrs. Kenneth Bissel will be patrons. Arrangements are now complete forO Dean’s Breakfast to the Senior Cl the various events of the forty-second annual commencement of the University of Southern California, according to information from the oflice of H.

Augustine Smith, Professor of Fine Arts in Boston University, will address Chapel on Tuesday, June 2. He an internationally known pageant director, having directed pageants in most of the principal cities of America and in many of the Oriental nations. He conducted a pageant in Tokyo, Japan, during the World’s Sunday School convention. STUDENTS AT PRINCETON are putting up a fight to make chapel attendance optional. They assert that the exercises are dry and uninteresting. Others recommend that quizzes be conducted on the chapel exercises. The Auto Supplement of the Trojan will make its final appearance in tomorrow’s paper| It has indeed enjoyed a successful period, due to the hearty support of the students and automobile dealers of the city. It was financially a success as well as it was a benefit to the students. Many features will appear in the final edition of the supplement which will be helpful and instructive to the student auto drivers, who have been desirous of this information in order that they may gain more knowledge about the care of their car. A well-known professor of the campus recently said, “The automobile section of the Trojan has given me many helpful hints, which have helped me to take better care of my car.” All students have made these acknowledgements, and this alone is one of the reasons why the section has been so successful this year. The auto section was first started on the campus by Bernard Weinberger, who worked very strenuously in order to make it a success, and he has succeeded. The editorial part of the supplement is being handled by Freeman Hall, who w'ith Mr. Weinberger has put out one of the best editions of its kind in the United States. The Trojan Auto Section is sent to all parts of the country and even to Europe for advertisement purposes. It has received nation-wide prominence due to the fact that it is practically the only edition circulated in the colleges of the country. Collateral Room Jammed As Final Exams Approach AUTHORS URGED TO READ APOLLIAD CRITICISMS reporting for a Freshman •latw in Physics a perspiring student is generally made to learn without delay the exact phraseology of Newton’s law of universal gravitation whicJi states that: "Any two bodies in the universe attract each other with a force which is directly proportional lo the product of the masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.” After spending thirty precious minutes in a vain endeavor to check a teook out of the collateral room, we think that this law might be safely either be a suave diplomat or you will have to waste interminable minutes waiting your turn. At least ten students will fall over each other trying to secure a box labeled ‘‘Do to Fi” and anxious ones will be peering underneath each other’s arms to catch a glimpse of the shelf number of their desired reference work. A symphony in blue with a chic white hat walked up to the card index catalogue and pulled out one of the drawers. Her first thought was to carry it over to a nearby table and look up the book wanted, but she mis- revamped to inform the world that" calculated on the capacity of a human “Any two students in Southern Cali-1 j,ajr Qf hands to carry stuff. In her fornia are attracted to the collateral room with a force that is directly proportional to the lowness of their grades and inversely proportional to the number of days betwixt them and final examinations.’’ Next to dates we find that the most popular place in Southern Cal. these days is the collateral room. Every chair in the basement is occupied and standing room is almost at a premium. If you want to get the name of an author from the card index, you must right hand she held the card file, a pocketbook and her compact, while her left hand carried a notebook, an envelope and dainty handkerchief. Becoming confused, she dropped everything and the pocketbook burst open with portentous results. Lipstick, powder, rougue, eyebrow pencil a mirror a battered comb, a memorandum book eighteen cents in change an Eversharp and two fraternity pins fell out. Blushes and feminine confusion! (CONTINUED ON PAGE FOUR) All those who took part in the program of the First Apolliad. either as authors and composers or as interpreters, are urged to call at the School of Speech office and read the report of the critics who attended the program. This announcement has been delayed j due to the fact that some of the criticisms were not received' until last week, according to Miss Hanna. TheTe were many helpful suggest-' ions offered and the general interest promises much for next year’s program. All the critics are enthusiastic over the effort to develop the creative arts. Quoting from some of them: •‘I want to congratulate the University on the Apolliad. It was a great success and should become a perma-✓ nent feature of your work.” “I found the Apolliad program a very pleasing one and a most creditable exhibition of what our University students the Apolliad will come in the the support and interest of the students the Apoliad will come in the next few years to be one of the most important activities of the college in view of the serious student.” New Members Will be Entertained With a Banquet Following Ceremony Initiation for the newly elected members of the Trojan Knights will be held at the Delta Mu Phi house at 3:30 Wednesday. A banquet in honor of the new initiates will follow the initiation ceremony although the place has not yet been chosen. At noon yesterday a first selection of the members of the Trojan Squires was made and on next Moday the final choice will be made in H206. Any persons not there in person will not be chosen. The election of the Trojan Knights under the new system resulted in the following addition to the ranks: Mo-mon Baber, Kenneth Boyer, Vernon Delse, Leighton Dye, Sam Gates, Bob Green, Revelle Harrison, Marshall Hudson Ralph Holly, Garth Lacy, Alden Ross, Bill Stewart Dick Stith, Al Swanholm, Ralph Smith Russ Nealy, A. E. Jones, Harold Decker and Harry Hunt. The president of the student body, Don Cameron, and the editor of the Trojan, I^e Conti, automatically become members of the Trojan Knights. The Trojan Squires is a new organization to co-operate with the Trojan Knights in the enforcement of traditions. Yesterday at noon all the Freshmen who were interested appeared in H 206 and a preliminary seelction was made. Permission to enforce traditions on the campus again next year was given the Trojan Knights and Squires by Harold Stonier, executive secretary of the University, although no violence will be permitted. The Knights will wear the same sweater that they have effected in the past, and the Squires will have similar sweaters with the exception that they will be black and white instead of cardinal and gold. The reason given for the organization of the Trojan Squires is to install the Freshman class and interest them in enforcing the traditions of the University. It has been sanctioned by the Executive Committee, and candidates for membership include all those men in the Sophomore class who will be in that class in September. Varsity Track Mentor to Keep Position Says Athletic Committee Contrary to rumors published in a local morning paper Coach Dean Cromwell of the Trojan varsity track team has not resigned his position as head of the Southern California runners. The rumor which circulated in track circles stated that Cromwell has resigned in favor of Boyd Comstock and Owen Bird. The following statement was made today by Assistant Dean Charles R. Millikan, who is acting as Chairman of the Athletic Committee during the absence of Dean Morton: ‘‘1 was very much surprised at the story regarding Mr. Cromwell and at a loss to know its course. It is a very unfair story, l>oth to Mr. Cromwell and to the Athletic Committee. It is based entirely upon rumor and coming on the heels of the splendid victory of the track team at Philadelphia, it causes me to wonder who is responsible for the story. “It is not true that Mr. Cromwell had anything whatever to do with the case of Keith Lloyd before the Pacific Coast Conference. The Faculty Committee alone is responsible for the Lloyd situation in all its phases, so far as his competition is concerned. While somo of the members of our Committe know Boyd Comstock and Owen Bird very well and have a high regard for their ability, I am sure that they have never been considered as coaches at the University of Southern California. Their names have never been mentioned in any meeting of our committee. * CRITICISM "The committe has received both criticism and commendation of Mr. Cromwell’s coaching methods. The criticisms have been for the most part, addressed to his failure to win meets from California and Stanford and his critics seem to believe that this failure has been due to a lack of development of second and third place men. Our committee has not been affected by these criticisms because in every large school a coach who does not win all of his meets is going to be criticized by somebody. On the other hand, the committee has received many communications of a highly commendatory character regarding Mr. Cromwell. These call attention to the fact that more men from the University of Southern California competed for the United States in the last Olympic meet than from any other college or university. Added to that record is the great victory of Cromwell’s team from Southern California in winning the National Track and Field Championship last Saturday. These (CONTINUED ON PAGE FOUR) Don Cameron of S. C. Elected Secretary of Body for 1925-26 Year That the Student Body Presidents of the Pacific Coast Colleges heartily indorse every movemenut made for better moral conditions on the various campuses and that they believe that the press should help Lhe cause of education by treating such oases with their relative importance to college life was one topic taken tp at the conference of the Student Body Presidents of the Pacific Coast at Stanford University May 2S-3»> Twenty-four men were present and twelve schools were represented at the convention during which topics on every phase of student government and control were discussed. Don Cameron and Ned Lewis were U. S. C. delegates, the iormer being elected secretary-treasurer for 1925-26. Other officers elect are: Fred Houser, S. B. U. C., President: Charles Walters, University of Washington. Vice-president. This year’s officers were: Waldo I. Stoddard, president, Oregon State College; Charles Beardsley, Stanford, vice-president, and Randall Jones, University of Oregon, secretary-treasurer. Topics of discussion included: Honor spirit, student court, freshmen difficulties, sale of annuals, freshmen week, point system, student managers, campus chest and financial drives, problem of non-fraternity men power of interfraternity council, athletic and activity awards, purpose and function of honor societies and methods of curbing over organization. According to Cameron the most im* portant question discussed was the moral conditions on the college campus. He declared that the Association has been told that people outside of college assert that immorality runs riot on the campus disregarded by authorities. The Association gave out the statement that investigation of moral conditions of all institutions of the Pacific coast made by the organization disclosed the fact that such moral laxity as existed on the campus is in every case dealt with severely by faculty and student committees It is believed that in most instances, these cases of delinquency are the exception and not the rule. The Association deplores the exaggerated publicity which is often accorded in instances of moral laxity which do occur. Besides several business meetings the program for the convention included many social affairs including a dance at the Kappa Kappa Gamma House, and two’ banquets. Delegates to the convention included: University of Iowa; 1,-eo. W. Fleming, Emil Strobeck ;University of California, Brent Metzler, Fred Beyers; University of British Columbia, Albert E. Grover. Thomas Wilkinsin; University of Washington, Chalmer Walters; University of Oregon: Walter Malcolm; Davis Agriculture College, J. S. Baumgarten; Washington State College. Fred Byrne. John Glanu and Fred Weller. Seniors Observe Annual Chapel Program Tomorrow EL RODEO PICTURES Prints of the graduation pictures in El Rodeo can be purchased at the El Rodeo office for 5c each. Very- few have been sold yet so practically any cap and gown picture can be secured according to the El Rodeo staff. STUDENT FELLOWSHIP The last meeting of the Student Fellowship for this school year will be held in the “Y” hut this afternoon at 4:15. The annual election of officers and other important business matters make it desirable that all members be present. Marking the first of a full program of senior activities in which the graduating class of 1925 will participate as a farewell to their almo mater, the annual senior ehapel will be held tomorrow morning at the regular chap-pel hour. This yearly event is a tra ditional, and usually one of the most impressive of the senior week festivities, combining the academic class pro cession and the program devoted to the activities of the class. A deviation is to be made in the service tomorrow in that academic caps and gowns will not be worn. Seniors will meet in the arcade of the Administration building for the procession into the auditorium, where a special middle section will be reserv ed for them. Dean Walter Skeele will furnish organ music for the processional. A program has been planned by Marquis Busby, who is in charge of the event, which is typical of the activities of this class during its four years at the university. Howard Coy will open the program with a vocal solo:. The class history -* ' 1 will then be read by Gertrude Street. Miss Street has written the history by looking up the old files of the Trojan, ami has made a complete record of the accomplishments of the class since its freshman days. Ned Lewis will follow with the class address; he is to speak on “Activities vs. Scholarship.” The idea for this subject was provided by a recent discussion at Princeton where the question was raised among the men whether they would enter activities or devote themselves to scholarship if they were to go through college again. The program will be concluded with pledging to Torch and Tassel, senior women's honorary society. The names of those who will be pedged have not as yet been divulged, but they will include the women who have done the greatest service for their alma mater during their college life. John Woods, president of the senior class, stresses the importance of all seniors renting their caps and gowns and making arrangements for hoods as soon as possible for the approaching senior functions.
