The revised examination schedule, providing the six days for examinations instead of four, is correct, with the exception that examinations which were scheduled for Friday, January 22, will be held on Friday, January 29. Registration may take piace oh Friday and Saturday, the 29th and 50th. Students will see to it that they register either on Friday, the ?9th, at such times as they may not lave an examination, or on Satur-lay. Faculty members who are advisors will make their own adjustments for the period during which they may be holding an examination. This arrangement conserves the integrity of the class work of this semester, allowing the important final lectures and reviews of Friday to be given and at the same time gives the six days’ examination pe riod desired by the students. KARL T. WAUGH, For President von KieinSmid. Exam schedules can be secured in the registrar’s office. TICKET BOOKS ARE ISSUED FOR NEXT SEMESTER New Books Pay Only For El Rodeo, But Include Athletic Events Also. SECRECY VEILS INITIATION FOR TROJAN WRITERS That new activity books .including tickets for El Rodeo, afe to be issued next semester on a similar plan to that followed at the beginning of this year was the announcement of Paul N. Marshall, ticket manager, yesterday. The new activity books are to cost five dollars, which, according to Mr. Marshall, will pay for an El Rodeo only. Tickets for all basketball games track meets, baseball games, and student body activities in general are to be included in the new book, with no additional cost. Only for the rest of this semester will the books used for football games during the fall be good for admission to athletic contests. Marshall states that the extra tickets in the book were merely printed to make sure that there would be enough of them in case any extra' activities were scheduled during the semester. In selling the activity books next semester, Mr. Marshall is planning to move a ticket booth from the Coliseum over to the campus in order to make possible a more rapid distribution of books, and thus avoid long delays standing in line. More information as to the plans for the books is to be given cut by Marshall after a conference on the matter this afternoon. New Class Schedule Is Out Soon For Second Semester The new class schedule for the second semester has been complet ed and was sent to the printers yesterday. It will be ready for the student body either the last of this week or the first part of next. Numerous changes have been made in the hours of the various classes and according to reports from the registrar s office the new schedule will be more complete and satisfactory to the great majority of students. Some of the principal changes are in laboratory classes, the classes which formally met for two hour sessions twice a week have been changed to one hour sessions three tinfes a week, also these classes will be held throughout the day. This schedule can be had at the registrar’s office as soon as it is re-ce^v^d from the printers sometime before registration begins. Every one is urged to get his copy early and to study it before taking up the ta?k of re-registering. This will save much time and confusion, according to Theron Clark, Registrar.

Deep and dark as were the mysteries of the Press Club initiation of last year on the sands of Redondo, those of this year promise to be more so. “Short kut sweet,” is the term applied to them by George Jordan, president of the Press Club. As the plans rest at present, the initiation dinner and ceremonies will be held at the Phi Kappa Tau lodge, 2809 S.

Last spring he was in Washington, • D. C., where he met Secretary Davis j of the Labor Department, and Secre-lary Hughes, then head of' the State I Department. He conferred with these I two men on the subject of visual edu-| cation on the constitution and government, and found them highly favorable j lo tin project.

All three are in store for those who come to see the scintillating, fun-making farce, “Are You a Mason?’ which will be presented in Bovard Auditorium Friday evening. The play itself was written by the famous actor-player, Mr. Leo Dietrich-stein, who has gained a rather enviable reputation for himself for the number of successes he has to his credit. “Any student who misses the performance next Friday evening will miss the best evening of laughs to be found in the city,” according to Miss Florence Hubbard, who is directing the play dealing with fraternal life. The cast of the production has been working perfecting its lines and adapting themselves to the various roles for tbe past month. Although Edgar Hanson has the stellar role, taking the part of the French girl, he is rivalled for the leading horors by Grant LaMont and Vesta Owens, both r, Mary Main, Maynette Rich, Charles | of whom haye made reputations for Wright, Bob Kranz, Milton Booth, Howard Edgerton, Betty Budd, and Frances Howard.

Miss Hubbard expresses INTERFRATERNITY RUSHING RULES MEET APPROVAL Unofficial Approbation is Given To Proposed Regulation For Fraternity Rushees. That the proposed rules of pledging for fraternities are a very good thing and merit careful consideration seems to be the concensus of opinion of various men upon the campus who are familiar with the problem. Attention has been focused upon the issue of rushing through the submission of three rules to fraternities for their approval or rejection. Men who have severed pledges are not to be repledged for eighteen weeks, notice of broken pledges must be given to the inter-fraternity council in one week, and there will be no rushing during registration week with a two week’s rushing period provided thereafter before active pledging can begin. Fraternities considered these measures last evening and the inter-fraternity : council will have a complete report at • their meeting on Wednesday evening. Hal Williamson, president of the j graduate school, when questioned as to his opinion of the innovation, said: j “The rules are good. In two weeks a man will have an opportunity to become acquainted and learn about the different chapters—this is not possible under the present pian. It will give the houses a chance to look men over more carefully.” Paul Churchill, sports editor of the j Daily Trojan, expressed himself as “in favor of the rules. It will make the system fairer to both the fraternities Classes for the |otatt at eight morning, February 1, 1326, according to an announcement from the Registrar’s office. Registration will take place on Friday and Saturday, Jane-ary 29th and 30th. The> procedure ior registration haa not as yet been announced, but it wfll not be materially different from the method employed In j September. As the new semester opens, the new activity books will be on sale containing tickets to the baseball game*, track, and a reservation for a copy of the El Rodeo. The two semesters are being run together without a break this year In order that the university may close several weeks earlier than customary. This change will no doukt be appreciated by those few student* who enjoy a long vacation. Since the examinations scheduled for Friday., January 22, have be«n postponed until Friday, January 29. those students who havB exams ret that day will have to take care of their registration in between exaim.. ih® faculty advisors with exams will also have to arrange their programs for the day accordingly. This change i» deemed desirable despite the little handicaps it may cause for It will preserve the continuity of tbe semester and allow for lectures aad reviews thB day before* the finals. There are only fotur days rema:nlnjf before the finals start and it Is expected that the campus and library will tte the scene of much last minute eilort in preparing term papers, fiiln*; Up collateral, and reviewing.
