Twenty-one fraternities and sororities have subscribed $500 apiece, a total of $10,500, to the library endowment fund, it was revealed Friday by Paul Elmquist, general campaign chairman, at the final drive luncheon in the Student Union. All fraternities and sororities will eventually be asked to subscribe, according to Elmquist; the subscriptions already secured are from those houses whose presidents*--—--—- could be located Friday morning.

The subscriptions call for the total amount to be paid in five annual installments, the first payment not to be made until a year from next September. By this arrangement, the heaviest part of the burden will fall on those who are not yet registered in the university. "It is only right,” said Elmquist, “that those who are to come, should contribute something toward the building of a greater university, the advantages of which it will be their privilege. to enjoy in future years after we have graduated.” HOUSES PLEDGED The fraternities and sororities which had subscribed up to Friday noon were as follows: Alpha Sigma Delta, Alpha Chi Omega. Alpha Nu Delta, Delta Gamma, Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha Gamma Del-1 were elected to meet with the execu- Prop group. While tht? complete program for the women's debate team of this year has not been filled out, it has been definitely decided to hold a triangle debate with teams from Mills, Stanford, • and the University of Southern Cali- j fornia some time in March. More- , over, a conference of delegates from all the women’s forensic teams wih be held on the S. C. campus on March j 30th to discuss the various problems confronting the debating organizations. ose New Hoover Cut City Council Considers Old Plan and Orders Engineer To Survey New Cut.

The day of the luncheons has been changed from Friday noon to Tuesday noon. SQUIRES STILL WORKING HARD Although they are not as much in evidence, the Trojan Squires are still functioning as busily as when entertaining the freshmen at the beginning of the school year. The chief duty of the sophomore organization at present is to meet the visiting basket ball teams at the station, guide them to their hotels, and to help entertain them. Regular meetings are held at the Twin Cedars Inn at which time plans are made and discussed. Arrangements are being made for the reception of the February class of freshmen. This reception will be entertaining to the upper classmen as well Just one more week remains for as instructive to the incoming class, students to have their pictures taken states Sam Newman, president.

Prospects for a metropolitan camp us for the university were further advanced when the city council last week considered the proposed Hoover cut and ordered the city engineers to survey an alternate plan and draw up cost estimates. The proposed Hoover cut in conjunction with the extensive building program upon which the university is undertaking will provide Troy with a campus second to none. The city council ordered the city engineer to draw up a plan, differing from the former, in which the circle park would be eliminated at Jefferson and the cut would pass the Pun-lic Library extension on the east side instead of on the west. A study was ordered to be made of the traffic sig- | nal difficulties at the point where' Hoover and Fiqueroa would meet, with the object of the possibility of eliminating a circle park at this point also. Though the parks would add beauty and well-planned arrangement; the cost would be greatly increased. Under the old plan. Hoover was to be widened and cut through on a straight line from Thirty-second to Figueroa and Exposition. At Jefferson and also at the corner of Figueroa, Exposition and Hoover extension, parks were to be placed. This plan would have Hoover Extension pass to j the west of the public library, and j cut through the center of the School of Architecture .which would be ex- I trtmely embarrassing to the studious architects. Under whichever plan which will be (Continued on Page Four) DEBATE MEN FALL FROM OLD HEAVEN Squad of Sixteen Men Move Offices From Old College To Student Union. After several days of intensive work the debate department of S. C. finally is located in their new oflice in the Student Union. The office Is on the second floor and occupies the two rooms fronting the southeast cor ner of the building. Charles Wright, Debate Manager, has ordered sixteen chairs and a large table to be placec in the debate squad office as soon as they arrive at the office. He has also placed an order for pictures of ah past debate captains and managers. These will be placed in the debate office. QUESTION CHOSEN The sixteen men on the squad are going through heavy squad practice Ion the question: ‘‘Resolved, That American investors and their invest-| ments in foreign nations should de-. pend on protection only from the governments of the nations in which the investments are made.” This Is the topic for the next debate on the schedule between Pomona at Claremont on Feb. 7. The squad is busy preparing their rebuttals and summaries and a week before the debate the team to represent S. C. will be chosen. At the end of this week the debate tickets will be printed and will be ready for distribution. The ticket entitles the holder to admission to all home debates during the 1927-28 debate season. On the back of each a complete schedule for the coming debate season is printed. HARD SCHEDULE “We have the hardest debate schedule for this season that we have had for some time” is the statement of Charles Wright, the debate manager. He also states that it is lm- (Continued on Page Four) WITZEL’S WILL LEAVE CAMPUS STUDIO SOON Oregon State College .Corvallis. Jan. 21—Failure of Jim Pinkerton. Oregon State varsity basketball center, to return to college this term has put a crimp in the Orange prospects for this season. Pinkerton who is a letterman was being banked on strongly by Bob Hager, Orange coach. Cliff Cordv, forward, probably will be out for the balance of the season due to an arm injury received a few days* ago for the El Rodeo, Dave Bryant, editor of the year book, announced today. The Senior class finished its quota Friday of last week, and no more of the cap and gown photos will be taken. , All students who have individual pictures scheduled for various organizations must have them taken this week.

A section devoted entirely to photographs of the campus is to be one of the features of the book. Elmquist Thanks All Contributors, Compaign Workers “Trojan students ALWAYS come through! This fact has been demonstrated before in every imaginable kind of undertaking. Our latest success is of tremendous importance .for we have attained a Ejoal which will set our University on the road to the recognition which we all know it deserves. "We as students may congratulate ourselves, as we have all had a part in this great undertaking. We have come through again with flying colors. “In behalf of all the workers i wish to earnestly and sincerely thank everyone who has contributed to this campaign. The re-5ponse of the students in all colleges has been whole-hearted and this fact has been felt by the workers and noted in the large amount of money received to date. “Those of us who have subscribed can feel proud of our er-forts. At present our quota is so close to being over-subscribed that it is only a matter of a few days before we can point with pride to the word “Oversubscribed.” which we will place in a conspicuous place on our barometer archway. “As general chairman of the student campaign I wish to personally thank everyone who has Tn any manner helped to put this drive over. The work has been or the highest calibre, and you can feel very proud of it.” Signed, PAUL ELMQUIST. Co-operative House Donates 100% For Library Drive Measured by the sacrifice Involved, probably few campus oi-ganizations gave more than did the Co-operative House. 835 West 36th St., when its members subscribed 100 percent to the student endowment fund for a new library. All of the six girls who make the Co-operative House their residence are working their way through college. In addition to their school work and business duties, they get their own meals and divide up the work of the house. The Co-operative House is run on the same plan as a sorority house, having a house mother and a regular constitution. Being dissatisfied with their present quarters the girls are making plans to rent another house. The six girl3 diving in the Co-operative House are: Marna Kinnie, president, Marion Clark, Laura Lamphier. Violet Doane, Clare Aderer and Marion Claypoole.

ORGANIZE COMMITTEE TO COMPLETE CAMPAIGN Fifty Workers are Enlisted at Luncheon To Finish Raising Endowment Budget; $20,000 More Needed To Reach Quota of $150,000. With over $130,000 subscribed at the close of the student endowment drive on Friday, a special organization consisting of fifty picked volunteers will set out this week on a ‘‘clean-up’’ drive to raise the remainder of the $150,000 necessary to attain the campaign goal, it was announced Friday noon by Paul Elmquist, general chairman. at thc campaign luncheon in the Student Union. ■——--* The entire organization of fifty . - nnnini 17 members will meet this noon at 12:20 CALL AuOlMdLi FOR ENGINEERS All Students Will.. Meet at Noon Tomorrow; Picture To Be Shown. An all-engineering assemly will be held tomorrow at 12:25 in H. 30G, according to the announcement of the ] Engineer’s Council, under whose aua-piceh the meeting is being held. A moving picture has been secured from the Armco company and will be shown at the meeting. The picture deals with the manufacture of steel by the open hearth process, and includes as one of its features, the camera vision of the open furnace when the molten metal is about to be poured. As far as is known, this is the first time such a sight has ever been filmed. That regular business will be taken up immediately following the showing of the films is the word of GeneSay-ler. All students are invited, whether engineers or not. No admission will be charged. WILL CONTINUE GRADUATE MEALS The graduate luncheons held each Thursday at 12:15 will continue throughout next semester announced Eleanor Veale vice-president of the graduate class.

Mrs. Morrison in turn has chairmen working for her who will collect dues from the respective departments. WAMPUS ART WORK PRAISED BY CRITIC Harrison Cady, well-known and popular illustrator and artist, has ex- for luncheon in Aeneas Hall. At that time, the workers will be given instructions and the plan of campaign presented to them. As an indication of the amount of work left to be done, a check-up made on Thursday, when the totaled $92,-000, indicated that subscriptions had been obtained from only 1475 students out of the 4000 or 5000 registered in the campus colleges of the university. The average gift at that time wag between fifty and sixty dollars. If everyone gives to the library fund, a new library on the corner of University avenue and Exposition Park is assured. The future of the university rests with those students who bave not yet contributed. If all of thfm subscribe their share, as the girls living in the co-operative house and those living in the Women’s Residence Hall have done, there is no question about the building of a greater University of Southern California. FIFTEEN AHEAD In the competition between teams of the endowment organization for the highest total in subscriptions obtained, the first place goes to team number fifteen, with Dorothie Smith, major, which secured $12,625 in subscriptions. Team number four, Harold Silbert, major, takes second place with a subscription total of $10,536: while third place belongs to team number twelve, Alfred Spaeth, major, with $10,471 to its credit. Division number three, under the management of Dave Bryant, won the inteiMiivision competition with a high score of $36,093. The total amount of money pressed his astonishment at the good > raised by the campalgn organization art work which has been done on the ud tQ the cloge of the driye on Fri. Southern California Wampus. Cady said, “The quality of art work which has appeared in the Wampus is unusual, and indeed very fine for a college magazine.” Announcement has been made re-garding tbe covers that are scheduled to run in the four remaining numbers of the Wampus which will appear this year. Feb. 3, the Wampus cove* will be done by Marcus Messinger. John Coulthard is to do the covei which will appear on the March & issue of the magazine. John Post, former art editor of the Wampus has consented to make the cover for the April number, which will be out on the third day of that month. up to the close of the day, was $130,391. TO MOVE CO-ED MAILBOX INTO STUDENT BUILDING That the mailbox will be removed from the Y. W. C. A. lodge on 36th street and located in the Women's Organizations office in the new Student Union building before the beginning of next semester, is the statement of Betty Farmer, W. S. G. A. president. The mailbox which is used for the distribution of mail to all campus women, addressed at the University of Southern California, has been located formerly in the Y. W. C. A. Since this organization will occupy rooms on the fourth floor of the new building, it is felt, both by Betty Farmer and Clara Miller, that the Women’s Organizations room is the logical place for the mail box. All sorority bids will be found there next semester and it is requested that all women visit the office and become acquainted with the location. It is room 234 In the new building. The Women’s Self Government Association is planning an extensive program of entertainment for the coming semester, according to Betty Fanner. Representative women from Southern California high schools will be entertained with luncheons and programs by the W. S. G. A., during the spring months. Also the women’s organization is planning to entertain cabinet members of near-by colleges. SENIOR COED TO RECEIVE TUITION Helen Mar Campbell Scholarship Will Be Awarded in Chapel Wed. Morning. The Helen Mar Campbell scholarship will be awarded in Chapel Wednesday morning to the upper class woman who has done all her work at S. C., has made the highest grades of her class, and has proven her character of bearing outside responsibilities as well as those of her school work. The girl who is to receive the award will be selected by the donors of the scholarship. The scholarship covers full tuition for the second term of the school year, and the award is given by friends of Helen Campbell, who have chosen this method to honor her memory.
