Southern California Trojan PREP FOR GAME The Stanford and Trojan varsity baseball squads will hold final workouts today in preparation for the third game of a series to be played here tomorrow afternoon. Coaches Crawford of S. C. and Zamloch of Stanford are both out to score a win. A DISPLAY in the window of the Associated Students Book Store will give you an idea of the high awards that the members of the Trojan track and field team will have to shoot at this year. In the display are the varsity sweaters and blankets and the standard Freshman numeral. Three prominent Southern Californians have installed several additional awards and a keener interest has been created among the ack men. • • • Prominent alumni who are donating these medals and the marks that the track men are shooting at are: The Raymond Haight medal for the leading S. C. javelin thrower. The Trojans have always been woefully weak in this event, but as a result of the interest created the Trojans won that event from California for the first time last Saturday. The Warren Bovard Medal going to the high point winner for the 1926 season will be undoubtedly won by Captain Bud Houser, who has yet to fail to make ten points in each meet this season. Ed House, the sprinter, will press Captain Houser for the honor. Prof. Ralph LaPorte offers a gold medal to the novice track man making the best showing this season. Thus giving the inexperienced men an opportunity to earn an award and something to strive for. * * • The athletes are all compensated or representing the University by jome reward. This applies even to he Freshman athletes. There are „lso other officers in the student body at receive some sort of token, prac-'cally every class officer being do-ated a gavel, the student body offi :rs, that is, president, vice-president nd secretary, all receive a gift ot H>me ntaure. Managers of athletics eceive varsity awards, yet their are number of managerial and higher anking offices than the above men-!oned that do not receive any lasting ift from the student body. These of-‘cers may receive pay for their work, ut in nine out of ten of those cases, .he money given does not begin to all pay for the service and time spent iy that individual. • • • There is nothing lasting in the ifices of these men, they hold the ifice their frietids know of it, but very thing is soon forgotten, tke ay is gone and the offce holder no remembrance from the stu-cnt body. It tvould be zi'ise for executive committee to think is over and adopt a uniform rule. ♦ ♦ ♦ GOOD deal of credit has been given out to various people re-ponsibls for the wonderful showing the 1926 Extravaganza, but as in ost cases the men behind the guns re never mentioned. Ray MacDonald, age manager, and Pete Diamond, ead electrician, were in part largely sponsible for the showfng of the usical bill. These two men and crew of assistants, with Eddie laine, the property man, made the ow the smooth-running production was.

Los Angeles, California, Thursday, March 25, 1926 Number 115 PAN-HELLENIC NOT HOLDING INVESTIGATION Report That National Pan-Hellenic Considering Abolishing Sororities Proves False Rumor. DEANS TO MEET IN APRIL “Actions of National Association Given Too Much Emphasis,’ Says Dean Mary Crawford. Correcting the report that was run in yesterday’s Trojan that the existence of sororities is up for consideration with the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Dean Mary Sinclair Crawford stated that the worthwhileness of sororities is not a live question at the present time and that such an investigation is not being conducted by National Pan-Hellenic. The issue will not be brought up again until a meeting of the Western Association of Deans in April. It is true, according .to the Dean, that at the last session of the National Association of Deans of Women a committee was appointed to investigate the sorority situation and that the officers of the Pan-Hellenic Council were asked to co-operate. But the investigation is not instigated by that Council. The Dean further stated that too much emphasis had been placed on the action taken by the National Association of Deans of Women. It was expected by the delegates who attended the convention that the matter would be brought up and create a great deal of interest, but such was not the case, according to Miss Crawford. An investigating committee has finally been appointed. However, the question will be brought up at the next meeting of the Western Association of Deans of Women, which will be held at the University of California in Los Angeles on April 14, 15, 16. One entire morning is to be devoted to discussion of the sorority situation and three speakers will address the convention on the subject. The speakers will be Deans Yost of Stanford, .Stebbens of California, and Cooper of the University of Arizona. ln the meantime there is nothing in particular being done in the way of abolishing campus sororities, said Miss Crawford. What will come up the discussion in April remains to be seen.
