District Judge of the Southern District of tbe State, and now candidate for election as Mayor of L<os Angeles, the Judge is expected to have a message, not only of interest to students, but of interest to future politicians.

It is requested that all those interested in putting on an act in this coming production see Solly Seamons immediately. Seamons, who is director of the show this year, urges that all of the acts be complete when brought before the show committee for a tryout. According to an announcement from the Senior class officers, many unusual acts of a more varied character than those of any previous Senior Road Show have already been presented at the tryouts. Grant I^amont has been working for some time on his chorus act which is to be the feature act of the performance. Previous records prove that acts of this nature are generally extremely successful in university productions, and Mr. I.a-Mont makes the assurance that this will be no exception. The far-famed Bud King and his extra ordinary syncopators have been secured to furnish entertainment for several hilarious moments, and are at present “shining up’’ their latest dance hits for the delectation of an appreciative audience. It is also rumored that Wes Woodford is tuning up his banjo for a particular purpose. The pledges of Lance and Lute, the local chapter of the National Collegiate Players, have selected their one act sketch and are going to start rehearsals immediately. Announcement of the final selections will be announced next week after the tryouts scheduled for today and tomorrow take place. Ellsworth Ross, production manager, is now making arrangements for the seat sale which is set at the standard price of fifty cents and seventy-five cents. It has been stated that probably no blocks of seats will be reserved for sororities and fraternities. Skull and Dagger Trial Is Set For Friday Noon Friday, at 12:00 is the hour set for the calling to trial of the three main campus delinquencies. Admission will be 15 cents to the first two hundred, then the doors will be closed and boiled and the court called to order. Secrets of the athletic field, of fraternities and sororities, and of chapel affairs will be revealed in a manner bold and daring. Especially are all sororities expected to show enthusiasm due to the nature of one of the trials which has already attraction the attention of some prominent movie stars. Under the direction of Ray McDonald the trials bid fair to become a most dramatic "scandalous” event. The Skull and Dagger trial is an annual event and one which all students should enjoy. This year's trials will be open to the entire student body— et least the first few hundred fortunate to get seats in Touchstone theater. ASILOMAR BANQUET TO BE HED AT Y W. Plans for the annual spring Asilomar banquet of the Y. W. to be held at five o’clock tomorrow at the Y. M. hut, are progressing nicely, accord- POLITICIANS READY TO OPEN FIRE IN CAMPAIGN Petitions Circulated on Campus Today for Annual Student Election By MOORE VOTES Political steam rollers of Southern California will start chugging their ways across the campus today in preparation for the final flattening out of excessive candidates for student offices at the elections on May 21. as a result of the issuing of petitions to aspirants by Miss Mock in Gwynn Wilson’s office this morning. According to political predictions, some of the grease with which many of the steam rollers have been greased may turn out to have sand in it It has always been the case at Southern Cailfornia, however, that the rivalry between various houses and organizations in the campaigns has been in the right spirit, helping to add interest and comeptition in student elections, more than in marring them, according to present office-holders. Petitions are being circulated for six single offices as well as for places on the Executive Committee. From pres- ing to Mabel Cunningham who is in en* statements made by a member of the Election Committee, eight students will be selected from Liberal charge of the affair. The purpose of the banquet is to kindle enthusiasm among the girls for the student conference at Asilomar this summer, which is scheduled for June 19-29. A special feature of the evening will be a talk by Miss Mabel Head, prominent in Asilomar work. Particularly effective also will be the table decorations, which will be in keeping with the atmosphere of the conference grounds. Girls are asked to wear light colors, preferably white, if possible. It is emphasized that Arts to serve on this commis. Two of them are to be graduate students. The presidents of the other respective colleges are automatically placed on the Executive Committee and represent their groups at its meetings.

The price for the banquet is only fifty cents, and those who are going should sign up at the Y. W. lodge. “About sixty girls have already-signed up.” said Mabel yesterday “but we hope that many more will do so, since this is the banquet of the year. We can promise that those who come will not be disappointed, and that they will find there something of the spirit of Asilomar.” The program of the evening follows: Song—Alma Mater. “A Place to Find Friends” Jessie Sato Vocal Solo..........................Marion Joplin “A Place to be Alone” ....Betty Knight Vocal Solo.....................Frances Schultz “A Plane to Discover” .....................................Elizabeth Kemp Song—“Follow the Gleam.” “Asilomar” ................Miss Mabel Head Song—“Asilomar Hymn.” girls may attend the banquet whether decided. Candidates are warned to make sure of the validity of the signers of their petitions as a careful check will be made on all names attached to these papers. Three offices will be vacant in the administration of student body affairs. These are, president, vice-president, and secretary. To these three places, and in particular to the first one, will there be plenty of competition, if pre-election predicitons can be counted to mean much. The run for the president’s place should show how well respective houses and other organizations have oiled their political machines. Opposing each other after three years of college newspaper work, the candidates for editorship of the Daily Trojan should furnish plenty of political thrills in their run for the helm of the publication. The candidates entered in this race will go before a special committee which will pass favorably or otherwise on their eligibil-(CONTINUED ON PAGE EIGHT) The third in the series of programs offered by the committee on Extra Campus Opportunities and Facilities will be presented tomorrow afternoon at St. John’s Episcopal Church on Adams and Figueroa.

Anyone who is going from the University in auto and has room for.extra passengers is asked to leave from in front of the administration building at 3:15 o’clock. EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE The Executive Committee will meet today at noon in the office of the student body president.

College of Music Will Stage Vaudeville Show Clever acts of vaudeville, wit, humor, and dancing to the music of the Hal Roach Studio Orchestra will be features of the annual College of Music vaudeville and masquerade to be held tomorrow night No detail has been spared according to Mary Taylor. president of the College of Music student body, to make this year's entertainment the best ever given at the college. A loving cup will be given for the most original and tackiest costume, and according to Miss Taylor, something unusual is being offered in the way of favors and refreshment. The vaudeville bill consists of the school’s best talent, and feature acts will be ( given by the Phi Mu Alpha fraternity j and Mu Phi Epsilon sororitv. Burdette Ives, a well known student of the College of Engineering, received the most votes in the popularity contest to determine the drivers of chariots for May’ Day when the ballots were counted Monday. Other men who were entered in the popularity contest include Geo. Orme, Freeman Hall, Johnny Woods, Marquis Busby and Fred McAllister. The committee in charge of the counting of the ballots reports that the campus has taken a great deal of interest in the contest and that many votes were cast but because the count taken was just for one day, it was impossible to make a prediction with any accuracy who would race on May Day. Several members of Liberal Arts college have offered to bet that their particular candidate will win over all other competition. Certain groups are enthusiastic over their candidate who they say will be a dark horse but nevertheless a winning one. and rumor claims him to be Ned Lewis, student body president HOW BECOMING! Another rumor that is current on the campus is that a committee has been appointed to see that the chariots are appropriately decorated in cardinal and gold. And another committee has been appointed to see that the costumes are periodically correct Red socks, gold sandals and a red toga with a Greek key border has beqn suggested as appropriate but nothing has been settled definitely. Some of the contestants, it is said, who are anticipating victory insist upon colors that will be expressive of their personality. Another argument in favor of the rainbow color scheme that the charioteers may be distinguished easily on the course. One promising young charioteer says the grandest moment of his life will be when he drives his gilded chariot through the driveway of the Coliseum. The ballots for the‘ popularity contest appear daily in the Trojan. They should be filled out and dropped in the box in the Student Body Store in order that the committee may get to count them daily and make more ac curate predictions. Quill Club Members Required at Meetings Members of Quill Club will hold an important meeting tomorrow evening at the home of Dorothy Crowley at 1150 Lake street beginning at 8:30. At the last meeting it was decided that all members be required to attend and have their manuscripts read. The penalty for the first offense will be an assessment of ten cents and the second time the offender will be fined twenty-five cents. If any one should disregard the rules three or more times, says President Chet Mackie, a punishment suitable to the enormity of the offense will be provided. The manuscript committee has been working on the articles submitted for admission into the club and announces that on account of the large number of manuscripts turned in they may not be ready to announce the names of future candidates to membership at the meeting tomorrow night, but that, if they are not .they will be announced no later than the following meeting. STUDENT BALLOT I nominate.............................................................. as one of the Chariot drivers for the May Day program. This ballot may be left at the ticket booth in The Associated Student's Store. School of Speech Puts On Play at Glendale Students of the School of Speech presented a one-act play for the Glendale College Women’s Club last week. Those taking part were Clare Kaufer. Nevin Packard and Lucile Knapp. DESIGN FLAG Syracuse students are to be given an opportunity to design a flag which will become the official emblem of the university according to a decision reached by prominent stOrents.

BACHELORS DECIDE ON NEW MEMBERS Partial Selection of New Members Made at Cosy Den Tuesday Partial selection of new members for next year was made at the Bachelor Luncheon at the Cozy Den Cafe, Tuesday noon. The complete announcement of men chosen for the Bachelors of 1925-26 will probably be made in the next issue of the Wampus, as in the past. The first appearance of the chosen few will be made in the Senior Road Show, May 21, in the annual Bachelor offering, “Horrors of 1925.” Initiation of new men will take place at the Ambassador Hotel following the performance. One of the inimitable “brawls” made famous in past years will close the social program of the organization. May 14. New members will be entertained at this time. Although the affair will be held at one of the fraternity houses, a final choice has not been made. Roy Cunningham. Marquis Busby, and Bud Welin are on the committee in charge of the dance. Only those men who have evidenced supreme disdain for the charms of the so-called fair sex during their college years were considered in making the selection of members. It was decided by the present chapter to limit the membership to not more than twenty-five men yearly. If present plans go through the Bachelors will broadcast a program
