VOL. XVIII. Los Angeles, California, Wednesday, October 27, 1926 NUMBER 30 FORTY WRITE SCRIPTS FOR EXTRANAGANZA Application Blanks Must Be Fille<T* Out By Entrants At Students Store. Inter-Fraternity Smoker To Be Held in Men’s Gym $100.00 IS OFFERED Student Production Rights Only Are Received For Prize Money, States Atwill. That all students who still wish to enter the Extravaganza Manuscript Contest must fill out the application blanks to be found in the ticket office of the Student’s Store was the announcement made yesterday by John Atwill, dramatic production manager. “With thirty or forty aspiring play wrights putting their mental ingenuity and wit to the creating of the best musical comedy ever presented in Bovard Auditorium I feel assured of & large number of scripts will be entered,” stated Atwill. “I think, however. that there are still many students who have an excellent chance of winning the $100 prize who have not signified their intention of entering the contest." This prize money gives the production department only rights to student performances on the campus, and not the ownership of the script. Grant LaMont, director of this year’s Extra vaganze, says that there is no reason why, if a successful musical comedy is given in Bovard, the author should not be able to sell his script or have tbe show given professionally “The student admiration and approval that goes with the writing of the annual musical extravaganza on this campus is a thing to be sought after and wished for by every student with a talent for writing,” stated Atwill. The men’s inter-fraternity smoker scheduled to be held tonight in the Armory will be held in the Men’s Gym instead. The Armory, though promised for this occasion, can not be obtained due to the fact that the floor is to* be torn up starting today. Each fraternity is expected to send their pledges to the affair accompanied by two or more of the older members to see that each pledge has a pleasant time. Boxing and wrestling will furnish the entertainment for the evening and refreshments are to be served to all those present. Elmer Fagen, popular local professor, is to be master of ceremonies. S. C. PRESS CLUB TO MEET NEWSWRITERS FROM 1. C. L. A. RETAIL MANAGEMENT COURSE OFFERED IN COMMERCE Processes of Retailing and Resulting Problems Objective of Course.

The purposes of this meeting, as outlined by Hal Silbert, president of the local club are three-fold, namely, to stimulate the interest of the student in sound journalism; to promote a closer relationship between the two universities; and to acquaint the members with the ^outstanding figures in the journalism field of the present time. Realizing the importance of this convention, President Leland “Dee” Tallman, who has just completed his trip up north to exchange addresses with the presidents of California and Stanford, and Harold Stonier will deliver at this meeting addresses that will lay stress on the relations that shoo’d exist between tbe two institutions. So as to inform the members about the activities of the two press clubs, important reports will be made by Ben Person, president of the visiting press club, and Hal SJlbert, president of the local club. 'J'he Gates TROY CARDS INTERESTED IN TROJAN DANCE Daily Palo Alto Reports Enthusiasm At Stanford*For Knight-Amazon Dance, Great interest is being shown on the Stanford campus in the forthcoming Knight-Amazon dance to be held October 30th, as is evidenced by a report of “A. S. U. C. Prexy’s Talk<” Alto, the Stanford newspaper. The football team has been invited to be guests of honor at the Hallowe’en Carnival at the Biltmore Hotel the evening of the struggle. The invitation, which was sent to the president of the A. S. S. U., has been turned over to Coach “Pop” Warner, who will take the matter up and decide whether or not the men will be permitted to attend. All Stanford students are also invited to attend the Carnival on the same basis as that on which the Southern California students will attend. Any Stanford student desiring to go to the dance should communicate with the Trojan Knight-Amazon dance committee. MOROSCO TICKETS ARE TROJAN PRIZE “On to California,” by Muriel Heeb, Wins First Press Club Award. Writing the best news story of the week gave Muriel Heeb the tickets to the Morosco Theatre which are offered as weekly prizes to Trojan reporters. The “On To California” story which appeared in Friday’s Trojan gave the writer first place in the week's contest, and in addition, her report of “A. S. N. C. Prexy’s Talk,” appearing October 18, was credited the best for that day. general impressions Dr. Baxter received while in England ’ regarding representatives from all women living in groups on the campus, is being the economic, industrial and religious orpanized This is for the purpose of conditions of the country.

By VIRGIL PINKLEY All departments of the university are uniting with students officers in preparing a welcome for the Stanford University delegation... Of course the football team will come in for its welcome, but eleven Trojans are planning on doing that little service Saturday afternoon in the Coliseum. This week-end, the sons and daughters of Stanford journey to Los Angeles in an effort to help the Cardinals defeat Southern California on the gridiron. With the large rooting section and a splendid hand of over one hundred pieces, the Stanford representation will make an impressive sight. We feel that Southern California will extend 'a welcome to the visiting university that is worthy of her' highest standards. Last Saturday we were not treated with- the kind of spirit that should mark intercollegiate sports. No doubt there was much talk before the game of just how each institution should act, but those of us who traveled to Berkeley came away with the knowledge that words are much easier spoken than carried out. * * * Last year the relations between the University of Stanford and Southern California were most pleasant after the game. This same spirit must be manifest again this coming Saturday. No stealing of rooter’ caps or rough play was exhibited after the game twelve months* ago, and students officers urge the same attitude on the part of the student body. Leland Tallman returns to the campus today after a trip which included visits to both the campus of California and Stanford. He received a royal welcome at both institutions and won a name for himsfflf as an orator of outstanding ability. Tallman expressed the desire of every Trojan, that of conducting relations between the various schools on a basis which calls for true sportsmanship on the field and in the bleachers. * . * * Again the Trojan Knights and Amazons perform a real service to the university. On the night of Oct. 30th, the date of the Stanford football classic, the two organizations will sponsor the Trojan Hallowe'en Carnival which will be held in the Biltmore Hotel. Throughout the year, the Knights and A mazons enforce fhe traditions on the campus and carry out other highly important duties, but it is in carrying out the name and spirit of Troy that both groups have gained a wide-spread reputation which speaks of nothing but splendid work. The Knights welcome visiting teams and ex-t e n d whatever assistance is needed at all university affairs. * * * From present indications it looks like the Coliseum will be filled to its capacity next Saturday when Southern California and Stanford football 'teams battle over a period of sixty minutes to determine which team is to remain in the race for the Pacific Coast football championship. While the huge bowl has almost been filled during the past two years, last year’s game with Stanford was the largest and drew some seventy thousand fans. According to Coliseum officials a crowd of eighty-six thousand can be packed in. We throw out the thought that if Southern California can stage a long schedule of games, draw over twenty thousand to practice contests, and then play to seventy odd thousand spectators in big games, the Trojans enjoy a backing that is given few teams. The Trojans use a stvle of play that is full of thrills, and thev always play to win, which means a team must fight. * * * Several weeks ago the Trojan started a contest which was intended to increase interest in writing good news stories. This (Continued on Page Three) Yell Prize Contest Finals Postponed Until Thursday Decision On Winner Postponed From Last Week Because Of Other Interests; More Yells and Bleacher Stunts Wanted, States Henney. With plans for the California game demanding attention last week, the contest for the prize yell and bleacher stunt is still open to contestants until Thursday at 4 o’clock, according to Burdette Henney, yell leader. Due to the fact that everybody was busy with other affairs during the last few days a decision was not made on the yells and bleacher stunts already turned in, but the contest is still to remain open this week and is open to all S. C. students. Suggestions must be handed in at the ticket office cage in the students’ store not later than 4 o’clock Thursday. * Up to the present time only twenty yells have been handed in, while last year 300 were entered. Henney does not feel that the reward, a large silver loving cup, should be given out until more suggestions have been offered. In spite of the fact that the S. C. rooting section has attained great fame with the yells now used, Henney stated that there is a decided need for two or three more high-powered vocal selections. The prize for the best yell turned in is a silver loving cup donated Dy Allen T. Archer, a graduate of the School of Law in 1910. The first prize for the bleacher stunt is a varsity blanket, and the second and third, fountain pens. These are donated by Burke Long and Bud Welin, former Trojan Knights. SPECIAL RALLY HELD AT UW SCHOOL BEFORE GAME Henney, Tallman, and Traeger Will Speak To Lawyers At Stanford Rally. Led by Yell King Burdette Henney, the Law School of Southern California is to have a special Stanford rally at the Law Building at 10:00 o’clock Friday morning. President “Dee” Tallman and Sheyiff “Bill” Traeger, former Trojan Law student and varsity football man, will speak at the rally, according to Ernest Roll, president of the Law Student Body. Since the Law School has moved to the campus, the lawyers have been supporting all university activities whole-heartedly. The rally is to be held in preparation for the support of the team in the S. C.-Stanford game Saturday. PERMANENT NAME IS BEING SOUGHT BY S. C. PLAYERS Cast For Plays To Be Produced Soon. Will Be Announced Shortly. STATE ELECTIONS AROUSE INTEREST Los Angeles Voters Must Mark Ballot 90 Times, Says S. C. Professor. That the Los Angeles voters who go to the polls (for the state election) in November, will mark their ballots approximately 9ft times, is the obser vation of one member of the S C. faculty. Votes will be cast for three Senators, eleven congressmen, the governor, other executive state officers and members of state legislature, besides propositions on local, state and national affairs. Propositions number eight, twenty and twenty-eight are most interesting to the southern part of California. Number eight concerns the division of the highways of California into primary and secondary classes and apportions the money to be spent on their construction between northern and southern California. According to the State Constitution a reapportionment for representatives is required on the basis of the population, decided by the ten-year federal census. Since the last census the legislatures have refused to allow reapportionment, though it is a constitutional frovision. Proposition Number 20 provides for a reapportionment commission, which will work out a system according to the Constitution. Number 28 is an attempt on the part of the rural sections of the state to take away from metropolitan centers, Los Angeles, Alameda, and San Francisco, the power in the legislature which they will gain if reapportionment is carried through. According to this, no more than three counties may be grouped together for one Senator. Another member of the faculty states that “the battle for United States Senator will prove very interesting.” Mr. Elliot is making inroads upon Mr. Sbortridge’s strength, but political wiseacres think that there will be a runaway for Shortridge. Mr. Shortridge is a strong Coolidge man and will probably receive a large vote from Republicans in California. The election of C. C. Young is practically accomplished. To choose a permanent name for, the S. C. Players, and to announce the casts of the plays on the first program, a meeting of tbe Little Theater group will be held this noon in Touchstone Theater, according to President Marcus Beeks. Last week tryonts, in which many students participated, were held for the three plays scheduled for an early showing, namely, “The Dreamy Kid” by O’Neill, “The Lost Silk Hat’' by Dunsany, and “Ropes” by Steele. The names of those chosen for parts in these plays will be announced today, and the date will be announced as soon as the welfare committee passes upon the plans. Until organization was definitely completed, the students of the group planned to use the name of “S. C. Players.” Now, however, a clever and appropriate name for a dramatic group is being sought, and the students present „at the meeting today will decide upon the title. GRADUATION HITS SIGMA DELTA PSI BY HAL SILBERT Graduation has left Sigma Delta Psi. national honorary athletic fraternity. in about the same condition that the tornado left the coast Of Florida—clean as a whistle. Every active member has been swept into the ranks of the alumni. C. P. Nichol9, popular and handsome minor sport coach, is hard at work trying to resurrect what bo terms the finest organization ln college ranks. Coach Nichols received an honorary membership in the fraternity at the time of its formation, along with President von KieinSmid, Professor La Porte, Mr. Hal Stonier, and Dean Waugh. It was installed on the Southern California campus in 1924 with Henry LaFebvre. football star. Yale Martz, track ace, Percy Niersbach. another track luminary, and a few other outstanding athletes as its active men. This Friday afternoon at noon at the Men’s gymnasium “Nick” wishes to see every man interested in tbe clnb, especially those who have com-plated some part of the tests. Oppor* tunities to complete the tests will be offered at the gym and Bovard field immediately. Coaches Dean Crom-welf. Nichols and Anderson will be in charge. The object of the fraternity is the encouragement of the moral, physical and mental development and training among college students. Every male student in colleges in the United States is eligible to membership, bat no student will be admitted to the fraternity who is found by the faculty to be delinquent in scholarship. An interesting section found in the constitution of the club reads that the candidate should command the respect of his associates as an athlete and gentleman. The physical requirements of the fraternity embody practically* every phase of athletics—track, football, baseball and tumbling. Some of the tests are: run the 100 yard in 11 S-6 seconds; high jump 5 feet; broad jump 17 feet; pole vault 8 ft. 6 inches; punt football 40 yards; 110 swim in two minutes; run mile in six minutes; throw baseball 120 feet; hand spring, hand stand and fence vault.

The question for the tryouts will be: “Resolved, that light wines and beers should be legalized.” The matter of which side the various participants in the tryouts will uphold is to rest entirely with themselves; which side of the argument is preferred, and the speaking order of the tryout team members, are other details which are to appear upon the filed roster. In commenting upon the proposed tryout, Bill Henley, manager of forensics, said. “Coach Alan Nichols has set a precedent this year in requiring the old members of the debate squad to try out. His object in doing thi3 is not only to give the older debaters an opportunity to match wits with the newer men, but to give those new to debating at Southern California a fighting chance to make the squad.” The following men so far have applied for a place in the tryouts: Mel-drim Burrill, George Lawrence, Frank Colston, Clifford Christianson, David Licker, Sam Newman, Edwin Jefferson, Earl Culp, Leo Adams, Elwood Harman, Virgil Pinkley, Marion “Red” Garrison, and Charles Wright. NOTICE All men who are planning on selling Pigskin Reviews at the Stanford football game, are asked by Kenneth Stonier to sign their names on the list in Miss Flock's office. In addition the men are asked to bring their money in advance so that there will be less confusion in counting tho money after the games next Saturday.
