The showT will start in Bovard about 1 o’clock. Confronted with this situation, Gwynn Wilson and the rally committee at oeoe made arrangements for a substitute method of giving the game play by play in an interesting and easily* obtainable fashion.

LAW STUDENTS PARADE STREETS Bring Brooms and Mops To Clean Classrooms for Occupation Next Week; Police Escort Leads Parade From Old Home to New Building. BY LOCAL ENGINEERS Engineers’ Welfare Council Instituted as the Representative Body of Southern California/ By parading through the streets of the city and out to the campus this morning. 335 law students are planning to celebrate their move to the j new campus Law Building, which will take place next Tuesday. The parade, if plans of the lawyers do not go awry, will form at First and Broad-wsay at 8:30. Rumor has it that three motor policemen will escort it to the campus. Brooms, mops, dust cloths, brushes and all of the other paraphernalia necessary for cleaning will be included in the equipment of the paraders. It is planned by those who .participate in the. affair, to clean up the new building . from top to bottom, in order to make it possible to hold (Classes Tuesday. Members of the law student body stair that they feel that the move into ithe new' building, which climaxes fifteen years of work by Dean Frank M. Porter, of Law, deserves a celebra- tion. Fifteen years ago, or in 1910, a picture showing Dean Porter asleep and dreaming of a new Law Building, was presented to him by law students of that time. It is felt that the completion of the new and modern structure on this campus is a realization of this dream. For fifteen years the Southern California Law School has struggled along in the Tahoe Building, at First and Broadway, a location which was entirely isolated from the rest of the university. It is felt by those in charge that the move to the campus will bring about a new era of concentration of colleges. Moving has already been started. Books from the library are being stacked in the new law library. It is expected that everything will be in readiness for the first class Tuesday morning. Law briefs, professors and classes twill be forgotten this morning in the hilarity of the Law School parade.

The GavHan district is abaoit sixteen miles east of the city of Corona and is noted for tho diversity of its many minerals. This region was producing tin ore during the period of the gold rush. Most of the tin mines are at present dormant This is due to the extreme strength of foreign compeUtion, which because of cheap labor, can produce tin ore much cheaper than it can be produced in the Gavi-lan district. It is only in time of tin shortage or excepUonally high prices that the mines in the region are worked.

C. A. DYKSTRA WILL SPEAK AT COMMERCE RALLY “The Business Man’s Opportunity To Affect. Civic Life, Subject of Address. is Mr. C. A. Dykstra, secretary of the City Club of Los Angeles, has been secured as the principal speaker for the opening rally of the College of Commerce, which is to be held tomorrow at the regular 10 o’clock assembly hour in Touchstone Theater in the Old College building. Mr. Dykstra, through'.his close relationship with the business and political life of Los Angeles, is ^especially well prepared to speak on-“The Businees Man’s Opportunity to Affect Civic Life," which iie has clsosen as his topic for this JFriday’s talk. Pointing out that the ethics in public life are tin the average on as high a j)lane as the ethics in business life, Mr.Dykstra states that usually public officials are tiding to do the best they can, but that they are often handicapped because the business men many times want things done in such a way that they themselves may get the profit. It is around this theme .that the speaker has outlined the talk w'hich he is to give to Commerce student* on Friday. Mr. Dykstra graduated from the University of Iowa in 1903. While there he was a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity, and at the present time he is vice-president of the Delta Upsilon Alumni Aesociation in Los Angeles. Following his graduation from Iowa, he did graduate work at the University of Chicago, and during 1905 and 1906 lie taught in a private college preparatory school in Pensa- An Engineers’ Welfare Council was instituted as the representative body of the students of the Department of Engineering at their second smoker, held at the Delta Phi Delta house, 504 West Thirty-first street, Tuesday evening. The purpose of the council, according to Bob Irving, is to unify the Engineers into an organization that will be one hundred per cent representative. Every branch of the Engineers will have representatives on the council, proportional to their number, which will be determined by three-eighths of the square root of **N,” where “N” is equivalent to the number of students in that particular department. A committee wras appointed by the chairman to draw up a constitution, which will be submitted to the “Interrogators” at a special chapel next Friday. The Engineers, w'ho will formulate this important document are Charles Kahlert, WTalter Scott, Gilbert Dunstan, Al Knox, William Hellings and ‘‘Boots” Oudermuelen, chairman The Engineers’ Welfare Council wras organized last year, following a visit by a group of Southern California engineering students to the University of California at Berkeley, where they investigated the council that is the pride of that institution. When the Berkeley body succeeded in electing the student body president, the Southern California Engineers needed no further argument in sustaining the efficiency of that form of organization and immediately set in motion a similar association here. The business meeting closed with a talk by Mr. Ehlers, president of the Los Angeles chapter of the A.A.E. He spoke briefly on the plans of the downtown association. WELIN WINNER OF PRIZE FOR SAFE DRIVING Former Trojan Knight President Wins First Award in Driving Campaign. DRIVE EXTENDED Careful Driving, Use of Arm Signals, Courtesy to Pedestrians, Affect Decision. HEAD OF WHITTIER COLLEGE SPEAKS An address by President Walter F. Dexter of "Whittier College, two musical numbers by Mrs. Corinne Wells, soprano soloist of the United Presby-terian Church of this city, and “extra program” entertainment by the youthful aon of Mrs. Wells featured yesterday’s chapel in Bovard Auditorium. President Dexter’s subject was, ‘‘The Religkws and Educational Program of the Twentieth Century.” As the basis of his address, he used the motto, •“Obedience to law, respect for others, mastery of self, and joy in service constitute life/* Mrs. Wells sang two numbers, “Hallelujah," by Mozart, and* ‘‘Rose in the Bud/’ by Forre-eter. She was accompanied by Professor Max Swartout of Yesterday’s winner: License number A-21-759. “This is the first time in my life I have ever won anything,” said “Bud” Welin, smiling, as he drove into Hank and Red’s service station to receive the first five gallons of gasoline to be awarded following the opening of a safe driving campaign on the Southern California campus. “Bud” said he wasn’t aware of the fact that he was being watched by Don Cameron, judge or the contest, and that he was not thinking of winning the prize, but was merely driving along University Avenue in his usual manner. Don Cameron said he had noticed W’elin pass the campus several times and had been attracted by the careful manner in which he was operating his car. Cameron called particular attention to Welin’s observance of yellow pedestrian walks at which ‘‘Bud’’ gave the pedestrian right of way, when possibly Welin’s car could have crossed without hindering the person about to cross University Avenue. The observance of arm signals, speed and other safety precautions also enter into and materially affect the decision, Cameron said. Don declared that he would be in favor of fining the drivers who failed to observe safety rules the same amount of the prize rewarded those who observed and obeyed them.

WOMEN’S CLUB \ WILL GIVE PLAY Proceeds From Production Will Be Given to New Residence Hall; Play Presented Saturday According to the frosh president, a special boat was secured for the tripP and the entire Colleg© of Pharmacy has been invited, althoi:((h the sophs are the honored guests. Latham also made the statement that although the College of Pharmacy had some good students in its midst, there is expected a notable lack of good sailors will be found in the party, and sea-sickness will probably be experienced by a large majority. This trip, said the class officers, is the first real get-together meeting between the two lower classes of the college, and aside from the entertainment afforded, it serves to “break the ice" between them.
