On _ the, Lookout Southern Ml By THE EDITOR T IS to laugh. That is in reference to an editorial entitled 'he Freedom of the Mess” which ppeared in the columns of our s serious contemporary, name-the college humor (?) publica-on. In it the writer objects trenuously to the amount of iace devoted by the Daily Tro-an to the recent controversy over le “senior jazz play, otherwise :nown as the “Broken Bachelor/ * * * According to the writer of said editorial much valuable space was given to the battle that was being staged over the play, and that “real news went a’begging” for space In the papers. The writer did not think that the “jazz age play” argument was news and did have some highly important articles to submit. Perhaps so, but we sincerely believe that the articles which were omitted are the age old ones about “the dear little Tommy Wampus cat coming out the alley with a brand new line of jokes/’ • • • But then the editorial in the oon-emporary publication serves the pur-;se of that magazine. . ... IT IS TO AUGH. ♦ ♦ + N FAIRNESS to the many Trojan advertisers on University Avenue, tudents and members of the faculty lould give the following restaurants eir patronage: Brown Drug Co., College Sweet Shop, Daniel’s Cafe, Lil-ard Drug, J & U Grill, Students Store fountain, University Food Shop, Uni-rersity Sweet Shop, University Pharmacy Lunch and Ye Olde College Inn. * • * There are several other places near-by the campus that have refused to advertise. The proprietor of one of them in replying to a request for an advertisement stated, “Why should we advertise when we receive the students’ and faculty’s patronage just the same." Students kindly look over the above llisted restaurants and give them your support * + ♦ N INTERESTING situation is confronting the Southern Cal-fornia Rifle Club, For the past casons the Rifle Club members we been allowed the privileges of the U. S. Armory Range at Exposition Park. Recently one of the officials of the National Guard corps stationed at the Armory inquired of the President of the Rifle Club if any of his men desired to join the National Guard. Since the majority of the S. C. Rifle men were occupied with studies none could join the organization. A short while later the Rifle Club was informed that they could not have Jhc use of the range any longer. m • * Eastern Colleges have been having considerable trouble with compulsory military training, the R. O. T. C. It is gratifying to know that the members of the Rifle team withdrew from the range and were not obliged to have compulsory military training stuffed down their throat. * * • The graduate manager's office is installing a range on Bovard Field for the men, which greatly adds to the equipment and independence of the University. * ♦ 4* r-r^ONlGHT the annual Pan-Hellenic I JL dance is oeing given at the Surf and Sand Club. To the roung co-ed it is quite an event, that of being able to invite her escort, but to the poor escort it is just a financial bust. Many of the invited *‘hims” have been sadly informed that “corsages are optional/’ Wouldn’t it be a good idea, men, to forget the flowers regardless of what “others will think.” Some time ago it was decided that at All-University functions corsages be done away with. Although the Pan-Hellenic dance is not an All-University affair, a democratic move such as the elimination of the flower show would be grea*.ly appreciated by the men of the campus. Let's be sports, girls, and do away ith this passe tradition. + + ♦ SOMEWHAT handicapped basketball team officially opens the urt season for the University of uthern California tonight. The quad has been severely wrecked hrough injuries and ineligibles, but vith Captain Kenny Boyer, All-Amer-can forward, in charge of the squad [n interesting game is assured. The Utah Aggies are a worthy mad, last year winning the Junior A. U. title California ONLY BEATEN THREE TIMES LAWRENCE, Kans., Jan. 7—The University of Kansas basketball teams have lost but three games out of 48 played during the past three seasons. It is believed to be one of the best records ever established in collegiate court play. During those three campaigns the Jayhawkers have copped the Missouri Valley Conference championship on each occasion. In 1924 they lost but one of their 16 conference tilt3. VOL. XVJI Los Angeles, California, Friday, January 8, 1926 Number 67 UTAH BATTLES PLAN MEETING OF AT NEW GONFAB May Form Association to Raise Standards of Southern California School Annuals. For the first time in the history of Newspaper Day on the Southern California campus, the editors and business managers ot high school annuals have been invited to attend the program which has been scheduled to last throughout the day on Thursday, January 14. The delegates representing high school yearbooks will attend the same program during the morning to which the newspaper representatives have been invited. In the afternoon, however, they will meet in a separate conference of their own in the auditorium of the Law Building from 2 until 4 o’clock. This conference of high school annual editors and business managers will be in charge of Barton Hutchins, editor of the 1925 El Rodeo, the book which won a piace in the national contest of college annuals. One of the main purposes of the convention of high school students! who are interested in work on their; yearbooks is to form an association j for the mutual benefit of editors andj business managers of school annuals! in Southern California. This association will attempt to accomplish such purposes as the promotion of a Southern California Annual Contest, the establishment of an exchange for the benefit of annuals and the raising of the standards of school yearbooks. The afternoon conference in the Law Auditorium will provide a program of talks and discussion on subjects of interest to the high school delegates. Harold J. Stonier, executive secretary of the university, and K.' K. Stonier, manager of student put> lications, are to give speeches during the afternoon. Ed Murray and Burdette Ives, editor and business manager respectively of this year’s El Rodeo, have also been scheduled for talks. In addition to these, professional men who have years of experience in the publication of annuals will present valuable points of information before the conference. New Exam System 1 o Be Tried For This Semester That a new system is to be tried out in the final examinations which are to take place during the week of January 25 was revealed by the recent announcement of the examination schedule for this semester. A complete change in the arrangement of examination periods has been made over the one in use last year. Last semester the periods were shortened from three hours in length to two hours, but only two examinations were given each day. This time, three examination periods of two hours each will occur on each day of the finals. Although the new system will save time in getting the exams over with, it may work some hardship on those students who will be forced to take three finals in one day. FIRST POLITICAL Four Undergraduate Classes are Considering Eligible Men and Women for Positions as Lead- ers. STARS TRY FOR SIGMA DELTA PSI List of National Athletes To Be Initiated Is Headed by Lee Barnes. REGQRO TP.VOUTS FOR I Mrs. Sally Teschke, director of the “Goose Hangs High,” will put the play through the final steps of casting today. The cast tryouts yesterday made a record for Southern California, as approximately fifty students tried out for the Junior play. An excellent cast will be assembled, according to Ellsworth Ross, production manager of the university. It was by special arrangement with eastern theatrical managers that the play was released for amateur production. It was under contract for professional use only, but was secured through the efforts of the play production staff and the Junior class. This is the 17th annual Junior play. Last year “Seven Keys to Baldpate” was the talk of the campus, and the “Goose Hangs High” will be fully as successful .according to Mrs. Teschke. The play is scheduled for production on February 26. This will be the only time that the production will be presented. The final cast will be announced next week. The Trojan chapter of Sigma Delta Psi, national honorary athletic fraternity, bids fair to become one of the largest of S. C. organizations with the initiation of the many campus athletes who have nearly completed their tests for membership. Headed by Lee Barnes, Olympic pole vault champion, who has the 2:20 low hurdles and the two mile run to complete, the list of prospective members includes many nationally prominent athletes. Les Heilman, S. C. varsity miler and holder of several inter-collegiate records, has good prospects of being one of the next bunch to be initiated. Hobbs Adams, captain of the Trojan varsity football team, is another prominent S. C. athlete who will compete for membership. Bud Houser, holder of the Olympic weight championship and captain of the Cardinal and Gold track team for this year, announces that he will compete for membership, according to Hank LeFbvre, president of the fraternity. Bob Lee, Jones’ outstanding fullback and stellar light on the track team for this year, is another who will take the tests. Mike Elwood, Cromwell’s speed demon in the mile event and Harold Silbert, Turner’s basketball player, have but a few events to finish for membership. Ranald Stever, I. C. 4-A. star, and Johnny Parsons, 2:20 star, also are in the lists for membership to the athletic fraternity. First evidence of this year’s political campaigns makes their appearance this morning when the four undergraduate classes meet to nominate candidates for offices during the second semester. This is a preliminary of what promises to be the closest set of class elections the Trojan Institution has ever seen. The only political dope that has been given out has to do with the Senior and Junior classes. The Seniors are going to run three men for presidency: Moiron Babei, Sarton Hntchins and Justin Dees. According to rumors, the only man who has announced his intentions of running for president of the Junior class is Wes Woodford. The class presidents urge every member to be present on time so as to make these the best class meetings S. C. has ever witnessed. Seniors will meet in H. 305, the Juniors in H. 206, the Sophomores in the Old College chapel, the Freshmen in Bovard Auditorium, and the Graduates in the Y Hut. Mid-Year Seniors Will Not Have Separate Ceremony Recent announcements from the Registrar’s office are to the effect that commencement exercises will not be held for those students graduating in the winter. This is in accordance with a memorandum from the President in which he states: “It is thought best to hold no formal commencement exercises in February, but to advise students who have completed all requirements for graduation that certificate to this effect will be issued if they so desire.” These students will receive their diplomas in the exercises held in June, but may obtain a certificate by application at the Registrar’s office.

If the matter of chaperones can be agreed upon between Dean Mary Sinclair Crawford and the Bachelors’ Club, “treasure hunting” is to be a sport indulged in by that organization next semester. This was the announcement of Ormond Grier, one of the committee planning the hunt, who stated that February 7 had been set as the tentative date for the event. In explaining the matter, Grier said: “Plans for the staging of a ‘treasure hunt,’ such as those held in England, have been held up pending an agreement with Dean Crawford on the number of chaperones for the affair.” According to information coming from various members of the club, Dr. Crawford demands that there be eight married couples as chaperones for the hunt. At the next meeting of the Bachelors* Club, to be held sometime next week, arrangements for the hunt are to be completed. At this time the final j trophy is to be decided upon, and details are to be worked out. In England this form of sport has long been one of the chief a sements of society folk.

Plans were completed yesterday in a meeting of the Deputation Committee for the presentation of an original skit written by S. C. students in a large number of high schools throughout Southern California. The writing of the skit will be finished by Monday and casts will then be selected to produce the play. The Deputation Committee, which is a student committee organized for the purpose of presenting the idea of the University of Southern California to students in high schools in the Southland, has decided to produce the skit in at least twenty high schools. The play has been prepared by Dorothy Davis, Ed Blaine and Art Syvertson. Ed Blaine and Bob Raede have been appointed by the committee as production managers, and Pari Welch will act as business manager. As soon as the skit has been completed the cast for the productions will be chosen. It is the plan of the committee to have three different casts for this play, so that presentations may be made in more high schools during the coming semester than could be reached by just one company of players. The first production of the skit has been scheduled for February 8. The deputation Committee, whose members were appointed by the Ex- j ecutive Committee, will direct the presentations through its members. Leland Tallman is chairman of this committee, and its personnel consists of the following: Hal Williamson, Farle Welch, Evalyn Ross, Harriet : Pearson, Kathleen Campbell and Adna Leonard. National Junior Champions of Last Year Take on Trojans in First Game Tonight. BY BILL FOOTE JEight husky farmers from the Utah Agricultural College at Logan, Utah, invade the Southern California campus tonight to battle the S. C. varsity in the first of a two game series scheduled for 8 P. M. tonight and tomorrow night at the Trojan basketball pavilion-With four stellar veterans from the team that held the Trojans to a draw series last year and which later finished up the season by annexing the National Junior Championship, Coach Rommey brings his squad to Los Angeles with high hopes of upsetting the Trojan five. SPLIT SERIES Last season the Utah team started things off by taking the first game from the S. C. men by a score of 31 to 23, only to drop the second contest 34 to 20. Two of the best scorers that tbe team had last year, Hawley and Nielson, will be on hand tonight to provide the home team with plenty of action, while Captain Saunders at guard, who proved to be one of the outstanding stars of last season’s contests, will be present to try to thwart the attempts of Captain Kenny Boyer, Harold Thomas and -Jack Bruner to score on the Utah quintet TROJANS READY Coach Les Turner has been drilling his men hard for the contest, however, and the Cardinal and Gold are as anxious to settle the question of hoop supremacy as are the Mormons. Kenny Boyer, who was the main cause for the Trojan victory in the second game last year, is going like a million dollars at present. Thomas and Bruner assist him in the scoring and are da* veloping into a great offensive come bination. Although several times in the game with the L. A. A. C. team last Tuesday night the clubmen broke through for scoring rallies, Coach Turner has been perfecting the defense apd the Southern California guards should provide stiff opposition for the Utah forwards. The speed and teamwork of the Aggies has been heralded all over the West and it is expected that the game tonight will prove one of the most thrilling of the S. C. schedule. They have lost the main cog of last year’s scoring combination, Baker, but they should effectively test the strength of the Trojan defense and show up the weaknesses in time to remedy them before the advent of the big series with California and Stanford. The Utah men have brought only three substitutes, one of which, Williams, is a veteran from last year. POLITICAL CLUB TO HOLD MEET Dr. Westergard, of the History department of the University of California, Southern Branch, has been obtained to speak to the members of the History and Political Science Honorary Society at their next meeting, to be held at the Au Re Ola house, 2920 South Figueroa St. on January 20th. A social committee composed of Agnes Arthur, Marguerite Plummer, and Maryann Claberg, headed by Dorothy Stephens, newly elected V ice-president of the society, will have charge of the evening’s entertainment. According to Willard Brown, president of the society, the annual banquet "tvill be held during February, for which further plans will be announced at the next meeting. A picnic or beach party is also being planned for next semester and many interesting speakers are also being obtained.
