Lowe Trip Invites Students To Lay Care Aside For Day BEAUTIFUL AFTER RAINS Three Stages of Train Travel To Bring Excursionists Up To Tavern Summer session students who are up in the air over examinations and papers at the present time will be up in the air literally next Saturday when they go on the annual Mt. Lowe picnic and excursion. Tickets are on sale at the Associated Students' Store at reduced rates for the day, round trip tickets being available at $1.90. If one hundred or more students make the trip, which is expected, the rate will be reduced to $1.60 and the difference refunded. Mount Ixme is said to be particularly beautiful this summer owing to tbe heavy rains of the spring season, which have brought the scenery to a high point of attractiveness. At all times the trip is known as one of the finest in the Southland, the view from the mile-high mountain affording a wonderful sight of the cities and towns at the base of the Sierra Madre mountains. Many will hike from the tavern to Inspiration Point in order to see the panorama. THREE DIFFERENT TRAINS Three stages of train-travel char WOMAN’S DORM IS BUSY IN SUMMER WITH 100 PRESENT Short Monday Night Drawing-Room Programs Begin This Week at Hall Canadian Universities Have C.A.ELLW00DIS Individuality of Their Own SPEAKER TODAY AT TEN-THIRTY “ ‘Business as usual/ might be said of the Woman’s Residence Hall, in spite of the fact that this is between semesters,”0 indicated Miss Rosamund Bell, who is, as she characterizes herself, acting-hostess to the hundred women living at the Hall while attending the Summer Session at Southern California. “We have an unusually fine group of women, coming from almost every state in the Union. They are loud in their praise of the hall, and pleased at the privilege of using it,” said Mise Bell. “And as for rules, we have none.” SEE SOUTHLAND Trips and weekend excursions in an attempt to see Southern California take up much of the students’ time, according to Miss Marjorie Douglass, summer social chairman. She added that social activities thus far had been limited to a watermelon feed which took place the first week of summer school. Beginning this week, drawing-room programs will be held every Monday evening, immediately after dinner. The programs will be short ones, consisting of three or four numbers of music and speaking. Miss Douglass stated that tentative plans are under way for a trip through one of the large motion picture studios to be taken some time before Dr. Herbert T. J. Coleman Gives High Lights of System Which Has Contact With British and American Institutions of Higher Learning BY HERBERT T. J. COLEMAN Visiting Professor of Education and Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, University of British Columbia, Vancouver I have been asked by the editor of the Trojan to say a fewr words about the universities of Canada. It is not easy, even if one had a more liberal allowance of space, to convey an impression which would not be in many respects inadequate and also possibly misleading. 1 here are some twenty universities in Canada, six being Provincial institutions corresponding in a general way to the American state universities. Most of the others, if not under denominational control, have some church affiliations. Historically most, if not all, of these universities are closely related to the mother country. For example we have Queen’s, at Kingston, Ontario, patterned after the University of Glasgow, and 1 oronto, I believe, after Edinburgh. The newer universities rep- +resent a synthesis of ideas gathered from the old country universities and from the older Canadian institutions. Sometimes I fear that this synthesis is not complete, and we are all learning CALENDAR acterixe the trip, the regular Pacific the en<^ the six-weeks session.

Lender star-lit skies, sheltered within a natural amphitheater formed of the encircling hills, the Pilgrimage Play, Life of the Christ, will be enjoyed by several hundred summer session students next Thursday night. Those see-urchased for I ** ^or t^ie ^rst time will realize why the Pilgrimage Play has become an institution of which Los Angeles is proud, and why its fame has encircled the entire world, with audiences drawn from the people of all countries, all nationalities and all creeds and classes. There is nothing dogmatic about the play—or is it merely a religious drama. Its truths are such that it appeals to everyone, and while its spiritual message is carried away by many, yet it offers an entertaining drama to those who look no deeper. The play is presented in twelve epiosdes, including the Prologue of PERMANENT ENROLLMENT CARDS MUST BE TURNED IN Students and others who wish ad vance information as t"> the Holly wood Bowl programs for each week tails in the acting of certain scenes are invited to attend Tuesday ses- Tickets may be secured at the As-sions of Miss Bess Daniels’ class in sociated Students Store at a 50-cent Appreciation Methods in Elementary reduction on each ticket.

C. and the meeting last Friday of the Council on Graduate Study and Research serve to illustrate the phenomenal development of the graduate work in the University. During the year 1925-2^ one hundred and twenty-four masters’ degrees were conferred, including Master of Arts, Master of Science. Master of Arts in Education, Master of Business Administration, and Master of Laws. Summer registration in the Graduate School is very heavy.

Assembly wrill be in Bovard Auditorium at 10:30, classes having been scheduled to provide for the extra hour. Professor Ellwood received his bachelor’s degree at Cornell in 1896, studied at Chicago University until 1897, and then went to the University of Berlin for another year’s work. Returning to Chicago as a fellow in sociology in the fall of 1898, he received his Ph.D. there the following June. For a year he served at Lincoln, Nebraska, in the double capacity of secretary of the Charity Organization Society and lecturer and instructor in sociology at the University of Nebraska. MANY ORGANIZATIONS In 1900 Dr. Ellwood went to the University of Missouri as professor of sociology and has ever since been on the staff there. In addition to being the author of many books in his field, he is a member of numerous professional bodies, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Economic Association, the American Sociological Society, the National Conference for Social Work, the London Sociological Society, and the International Institute of Sociology. Professor Ell wood's works include: Sociology and Modem Social Problems, Sociology in its Psychological Aspects, which has been translated into the French; The Social Problem. An Introduction to Social Psychology, both of which have been rendered into Japanese, and The Reconstruction of Religion, a sociological view of which there is now a German translation. Professor Ell wood’s latest book. “Christianity and Social Science,” was published in 1923. must grow and fix itself to the environment in wrhich it is placed. In two respects Canadian universities resemble the British, first in the short session, usually not more than seven months and generally less insofar as the actual teaching is concerned, and second, in the matters of honors students and the so-called pass students. The distinction is often an invidious one and is not always justified by the superior scholarship of the honors man. He is often merely the man who in his upper years has concentrated upon a few related subjects as against the man whose course has been more elective in character. SIMILAR TO UNITED STATES Canadian universities have borrowed extensively from the United States. The unit system of awarding credits is now pretty generally used. Then, too, the elective system is universally recognized, though there is a strong disposition to prevent any (Continued on Page Four) Dean Rockwell Hunt Tells of Graduate School Expansion Masters' Degrees For Past Year Number 124, and Many Hope To Complete Requirements This Summer; First Group Has Taken Preliminary Doctors Examinations Students in the Summer Session are reminded that their Permanent Enrollment Cards are due in the office of the Registrar not later than five days from the date of payment in the business office.
