We are undertaking the biggest paper in the history of Southern California. To keep this up means money and it is these advertisers who put up the money. We are not putting our advertising in the class of charity either to the advertiser or to the student. For on the one hand we know that there is a great deal of money to be spent bv the members and families of members of a student body of this size, and on the other hand we believe that the merchants who are wide awake and progressive enough to see the trade advantages of the “Trojan” are the ones who are best prepared to do business with Southern California students. Therefore, we offer for your approval a classified list of the businesses that have the “Southern California spirit” in advertising. Read them and follow them and help yourself and the “Trojan.” —The Editor. <Ehp (016 (Irnjan’s (Enlumn R [COGNIZES S ION SOL COACH HOWARD JONES ; 6IIIES RALLY SPEECH Football Mentor Talks on the Spirit Needed to Win; Syvertson Gives Cal Trip Plans. “It is very fitting, at a rally of this I kind, to Introduce a man beloved by both students and varsity; the man upon whom the eyes of the sporting world are turned—Coach Jones of the Southern California Varsity.” This was the introduction of “Dee” Tallman, President of A. S. U. S. C. in presenting the head mentor of the S. C. football team to the assembled students at the rally held Friday morning. Coach Jones spoke of the spirit that wins the football game. "The j thing that make6 the team,” he said, j “is a group of men who will fight, j A real football team is one that will | get out and fight hard all of the I time because they think they have to. “The real team requires endurance. Football is a game that requires the utmost of physical power, but it is the mental attitude that puts the game over. One should never admit defeat. “I want the student body back of the team win or lose. Take them as they come; but remember this—if there is any man on the team unwilling to sacrifice he is absolutely through as far as making the S. C. football team is concerned.” Arthur Syvertson, chairman of the rally committee, told of the plans already made for the migration of the “Trojan Crusade” to Berkeley for the California-Southern California game. A special train, sponsored by the Southern Pacific Company, will leave from Exposition Boulevard immediately following the huge rally and parade, on October 22. Commerce Professors Hold Faculty Positions in Educational Division of Strong Institute. Evidence or the high place beld by the College of Commerce of Southern California in the estimation of business men is shown by the fact that several Commerce faculty members are instructors in the local chapter of the American Institute of Banking. This Institute is the educational division of the American Banking Association. This American Institute of Banking is an educational plan by which bankers and others connected with the banking business may receive instruction in their own field of business, and It is this type of instruction which professors of the College of Commerce are giving. This instruction answers to two different tests: one that of its usefulness to the business men. the other that of the ability of the professors to give valuable instruction. If Southern California professors can profitably teach business men in their own field it follows that they can without doubt teach students of business and banking. and this is what they are doing. By this method S. C.’s College of Commerce will not go through a slow j development by an enlargement of economic courses, but will make use of the experience of such universities as Princeton, Harvard and Columbia in their Colleges of Business Administration and of Commerce and more quicily achieve the desired results. A.S.O.C. PRESIDENI 10 ADDRESS T There are five hundred students and 59 professors on a "floating university.” The “campus,” the steamship “Ryndam.” sailed from Hoboken on a trip around the world. SOPHOMORES MEET TODAY IN BOVARD In order to nominate a class secretary and to perfect plans for the coming sophomore danee, the sophomores wTill meet today in Bovard Auditorium at 12:20. Nominations for a class secretary must be made at this time in order to fill the vacancy left by Frances Litchey, who did not return to S. C. this fall. Cecil Vigne, chairman of the dance committee, will make a report concerning the affair which is to be held at the Zeta Tau Alpha house Friday night. According to Dave Bryant, class president, this is a very important meeting and he wants every sophomore to be there. SPEAKER WOULD EXPERIENCE LIFE To experience life, and express it —such, it seems, is the aim and accomplishment of John Huston, painter, writer, and actor, who spoke at the Press Club banquet Thursday evening. Still in his twenties, Huston has experienced the hardships of New York’s “Hell’s Kitchen,” has accomplished much along artistic lines, has been associated, as a writer and actor, with that interesting personality, Eugene O’Neil, and has been known as the foremost Juvenile actor on the New York stage. Brains plus technique; experience plus wit and humor—that is John Huston. “While a man is struggling and putting forth his best efforts the world takes no notice of him,” said Huston. “He thinks the struggle is futile and worthless: he puts down these thoughts, and becomes famous. Then,” he added with his character- god ot him and worships his demi- worst It is well to think about life and its meaning, thinks Huston, and it is while a man is striving, groping for the meaning of things, that he does his best creative work. Mr. Huston will take an Asiatic trip soon, visiting Asia «»nd China, and attempting a trip to the Forbidden City, which only six men have visited. , “I shall write up my travels, and whenever I reach a point of civilization, I shall send back a runner with “Copy” telling of my exper-inces,” said Huston. Exchange Talks Between McCarthy of California and Tallman is Plan. Announcement of exchange talks between Bob McCarthy, president of Associated Students of the University of California at Berkeley, and Leland “Dee” Tallman, Southern California student body president, was received with enthusiasm on the campus Friday. Tentative plans call for a special rally Friday morning at nine o’clock, at which time McCarthy will address Southern California, and a return talk will be given by Tallman on the northern campus the following Monday. Aproval of the plans has been voiced by the administration, faculty, student body, and alumni, and the occasion is expected to further a friendly spirit between the two largest universities on the Pacific Coast. The speeches, coming as they do on the eve of the Trojan-Bear game the following Saturday, are expected to be of considerable interest to both student bodies. McCarthy’s speech of twenty minutes is expected to be based on the need of a more friendly spirit and an argument for proposition number ten on the November ballot, which vitally affects California education. Tallman has not as yet formulated his talk. The prompt response of the northern president to Tallman’s offer of truce was encouraging, and Tallman hopes that the two student bodies will take the matter in the same spirit. A round of entertainment is planned for McCarthy’s visit. He will arrive sometime Friday morning from Berkeley. and after his talk at nine o’clock will be shown the Southern California campus. A conference between the presidents, an attempt at a solution of the problems confronting the two universities,. is expected to be held sometime Friday. Friday night McCarthy will attend a sorority dance on the campus and will attend the Southern California-Occidental game at the Coliseum Saturday afternoon. He will stay at fraternity houses while on the campus. This move has been lauded by those vitally interested in California and Southern California, and is regarded as but a step toward a triumveirate between California, Stanford, and Southern California. DORM RUES PUT INTO CONSTITUTION House rules were incorporated in the W. S. G. A. consttiution at the j meeting held last Monday night, according to Eleanor Mix, W. S. G. A. | president The rules have not been changed since last year, when they were approved by President von KieinSmid and Dean Crawford. Notices have been sent to the house mothers at the various houses giving the following rules: Open evenings are 1:00 A. M. on Friday, 12:30 Saturday, 10:30 Sunday, and on closed evenings 8:00 P. M. from Monday to Thursday. Quiet hours are from 8:30 A. M. to 12:00 Monday to Thursday, 1:30 P. M. to 3:-0 P. M. Monday to Thursday, 7:30 P. M. to 9:30 P. M. Monday to Thursday, 11:30 P. M. to 9:00 P. M. Friday, Saturday Sunday. Lights must be out at 10:30 P. M. GEORGE C. JORDAN We hope that the unsuccessful candidates for the positions of assistant yell leaders will take this in the right spirit and not feel that we are taking sides in a contest that is past, but we want to say that we are glad that Gordon Pace was chosen by the executive committee as one of the two. We are frank to say that we got a huge “kick” out of the way the Dents packed the auditorium to literally root for their man. What is more, we believe that if they have enough spirit to come over the way they did and take part in the way they did they deserve representation on the yell king’s squad. It is not so much Gordon Pace, the man, whose election pleased us. We are glad for what we take to be a positive sign of the growing feeling of unity between the various colleges of Southern California. • * • % “The average San Franciscan has a far greater knowledge of the football game than the fellow from Los Angeles. He is more loyal to California than the man from Los Angeles is to S. C. Some day the Southern Branch may draw the loyalty of all Los Angeles, but S. C., never. The real estate man and the graduate may yell his head off for the Trojans, but there is nothing about S. C. for the ordinary layman to go crazy over.” The above clipping, taken from a San Francisco paper, was sent in to us by a prominent alumna for us to laugh too. Had the article been written with apparent malice we might have taken offense. But the humor of it is that we believe the author to be sincere. He really thinks that “Frisco” is a superior town and California a superior institution. It is not our intention to reduce this column to the level of squabbles as to the number of people who may attend football games in various parts of the country. The Coliseum crowds are large enough. But we enjoyed the clipping and thought maybe the stu dents would too. * • • Two years ago Southern California went to Berkeley to a football game. We were among those who went and in one respect we have always regretted the trip. We regretted it, not because we saw our team defeated, we would have gone twice as far to support the Trojan varsity even though we knew in advance it was going to lose. We were sorry because we so treated at that time that it has been hard for us to give California a square deal in our thinking since. At the time, however, we took an idealistic point of view and favored doing something magnanimous, something big, and spectacular. * * * Two years have cured us of the desire to shock the world by a supremely heroic display of mag-nami'ty toward Berkeley. Now we welcomed the student body president from there, but for a different reason. We believe that it is just “common sense that these two great universities, California and Southern California, should understand each other. Rival college men in the United States seem to need to understand each other just as much as do the rival nations of Europe. Therefore we welcome the California student body president and we hope that the Southern California student body will give him a royal welcome, one worthy of Southern California, not because that will be a generous and spectacular thing to do, but because that is (Continued on Page Three) Trojans To Honor Stanford Men at Grand Carnival Taking the form of a Hallowe’en carnival, the annual Trojan Knight-Amazon ball will be held in the Biltmore Hotel the evening after the Stanford-S. C. game on Oct. 30. Members of the Stanford team will be guests of honor. According to Garth Lacey, chairman of the dance committee, the affair is to have a carnival atmosphere throughout. He states that a ten piece orchestra has been secured, and that plans are being made to secure special talent for entertainment The number of those who can attend the ball has been limited to four hundred, and tickets will cost $2.60. FRESHMEN MEETING HELD AT MEN’S GYM Frosh Get-Together Featured by Musical Entertainment and Dancing; Has Big Attendance. The frosh get-together held in the men’s gymnasium Friday afternoon was well attended, showing that the spirit of Southern California’s verdant class is not entirely lacking as has been said. A good program was given by the best talent of the class. Tom de Graffenried played two violin solos, “Song of India” and “Spring Song by Grieg. Bertha Winstel gave a character reading, “Aw shoot, Ma!” and Celestine White sang two solos, “Take This Rose,” and “Wil-o’ the Wisp,” by MacDowell. Dancing followed the program, and music was furnished by the Varsity Orchestra. Several novelty dances were staged, men’s cheats, girl’s cheats, and lemon dances. Cards bearing the wearer’s name were worn by everyone. According to Loren Matheson, freshman class president, the cards were a wonderful help in the process of getting his classmates acquainted as they eliminated the supposed painfulness of a more formal introduction. Matheson also stated that after Friday’s successful get-together, the members of the class are on a more friendly basis and will pull together better in a true Trojan manner. EXTRAVAGANZA AUTHORSHIP TO BE SETTLED BY CONTEST One Hundred Dollars in Gold To Go To Person Submitting Most Original Manuscript; Experienced Men To Judge. _ By CHARLES WRIGHT One hundred dollars in gold coin and the envy and admiration of the entire Southern California student body will go to the person writing the best original manuscript suitable for production in the Fourth Annual Extravaganza, it was announced today by John Atwill, manager of productions. When asked as to the object of the proposed “Extravaganza Manuscript Contest,” manager Atwill said: “Our aim ln the presenting of such a competition is to foster the play writing spirit in the student body, to engen- DEATH TAKES STEVE GENTER Acute Appendicitis Causes Death of Popular Tennis Player From Venice. Stephen Genter, popular student on the campus, passed away Thursday evening at the home of his parents, in Santa Monica. According to attending physicians his death was due to an attack of appendicitis. Because of the suddenness of the attack, death came before an operation could be performed. Genter entered the University last February, coming from Venice High School. He was considered by the coaches at Venice to be one of the finest tennis players that the institution has turned out in some time. While at the University he played on the Freshman tennis team.
