A unique feature of the dance will be the "date bureau,” at which all bashful eds and co-eds may secure dates for the dance, without cost and with pleosure. Several prominent, students have stated a desire to try this up-to<late agency, one fair co-ed giving the requirements for dating her as being, “tall, handsome, with black curly hair.” Men who think they can meet these requirements are requested to leave their names and qualifications at the date bureau, which will be located in the arcade of the Administration building. Chess and Checkers Are Chief Interest Of Campus Organization A Chess and Checkers Club has been formed on the campus for the purpose of promoting interest in these two games as well as to compete against other colleges.

PLANS COMPLETED FOR BIG ANNUAL FROSH DANCE California Country Club To Be Scene of Sport Affair Friday Night. Arrangements for the Frosh Sport Dance, which is to be held this coming Friday night at the California Country Club, are ail completed, according to Sam Newman, president of the class of 1930. A prominent campus orchestra will furnish the evening's entertainment as well as the very latest in dance music. An unusual feature will be the serving of cider in place of the usual punch. The California Country Club is in itself a j-trong attraction for those desiring an all-around good time, states Newman. Billiard tables and other forms of amusement will be provided for those tiring of dancing. There is a large balcony overlooking the dance floor and one entire side of the room may be opened up onto a large porch overlooking the city. The club is located near Palms and is a short distance off National Boulevard. Class executives have been making strenuous efforts to put the affair over in an unusual manner, under the supervision of the president and Lor ene Zeigler, vice-president. Alberta Plasterer is entertainment chairman, Vernon Keene, refreshments, and Howard Ralston has charge of securing the orchestra. Albert Kaser .treasurer, has charge of finances and the selling of Dids. These may be obtained from the Student Store or members of the class officers for $1 If freshman dues have been paid, or $1.50 otherwise. MAY 20IH IS SET AS DATE FOR EL RODEO First Appearance on That Day; Saturday is Copy Deadline. El Rodeo, the annual year-book of the University, will appear on the campus between May 20 and 25, according to the announcement of Ralph Holly, editor. Next Saturday has been set as the deadline on all copy. Four hundred pages have already been turned in, eighty pages of the athletic, track, drama, and debate sections still being due. Next week the staff will be kept busy with reading page and galley proofs, after which the annual will go to press. This year’s El Rodeo will contain 480 pages. The classical note will predominate throughout the publication. The front cover is to have Greek friezes at top and bottom, and a Greek design in the center. The covers are to be of the best fabri-kord. Three new sections will be added to the usual number this year: a women’s section, a music section, and a section devoted to the student-body organization of the schools and colleges on the campus other than Liberal Arts. In regard to this latter section, it is true that sections devoted to the various schools and colleges have appeared heretofore, cut they have always treated the subject from the faculty standpoint rather than from the student standpoint. The new treatment of the matter will prove to be an innovation from the standpoint of the students. Binding is to be done by the Leather Products Co.; printing, by Carl Bundy’s; and engraving, by the Star Engraving Co. FRESHMEN MUST WEAR GREEN CAPS SAYS COMMITTEE Executive Body Selects Green “Dinks’’ As Good Emblem For Next Year. S. C. RADIO PROGRAM GIVEN OVER K. F. I. Southern California will give its weekly program over radio KFI tonight. From 6:15 to 6:30 Dr. C. V. Gilliland, a professor in the history department, will speak on the “Radiotorial Period” and will also discuss the current problems; in history. Musical numbers will be rendered by the Clarion Quartet, which is composed of Henrietta Henderson, soprano; Genevieve Clumly, contralto: Don Wheaton, tenor, and Genett Stockings, baritone. They will be on the air from 7 to 8 o’clock. Miss Henderson and Mr. Stockings were former students of this University. tt AYE, AYE, SIR” TICKETS TO GO ON SALE TODAY AT BOOK STORE Tickets for “Aye Aye, Sir,” the musical comedy which is to be presented by the Musical Organizations Department at the Playhouse April 29 and 30, will go on sale this morning at the Associated Students Book Store, according to Harold Roberts, under whose supervision the play is being presented. Until the days of the performances no tickets will be sold at the Playhouse box office, so that the choice o freserved seats will be obtainable to students and only those from the outside who come to the campus to sbtatin their tickets. Dress rehearsal for the show will be held next Wednesday evening, the presentation being practically in shape now for the final showing. Bob Ames, author, has been directing the cast for nearly two months. Sets for the show will be completed by next Tuesday and will be in use at the dress rehearsal. Special costumes for the entire cast are being rented from the Western Costume Company. Besides the sixty members of the cast, all of whom are students in the Musical Organizations Department, a 35-piece Trojan Little Symphony Orchestra has been rehearsing for several weeks. The orchestration and the musical score were arranged by Louis La Rondelle, who is responsible for the scores of several we»l-known musical shows and who hos done considerable work with Gilbert and Sullivan presentations. The en tire musical theme of the show follows the Gilbert and Sullivan type. “That’s cute!” “A perfect dear!” Such were the remarks directed at Dee Tallman, student body president by the feminine element in the executive committee. The remarks, however, were not intended personally for the person of Mr. Tallman himself, but rather for the samples of freshman hats which he was trying on in the process of selecting the piece which is to crown the next crop of Trojan freshmen. Several caps were shown to the committee, but the frosh had not a friend. The verdict was unanimous in favor of the little green dink. The only variation from the dink of history will be that the one to be used at Southern California beginning next September will have a cardinal and gold button. The meeting was short and little important business was transacted. There was an explanation by President Tallman of the situation with regard to the refusal of the College of Dentistry to ratify the constitution. The matter of stickers was brought up again and a final design was decided upon. There was also a report of the work of the deputations committee and President Tallman read a report of the type of program that has been suggested for next year, based upon the commit- I tee’s experiences this year. Semi-Centennial Means Expansion. No Restrictions on Knight Membership. Western Hospitality Shown Here. The Result of Quick Judgments. Searching Self-Question Would Help. The “Late-Season” Jobs Are the Trying Ones. RESEARCH METHODS WILL BE DISCUSSED Continuing the series of lectures on research methods by faculty members from the different departments, a program featuring talks by Dr. L. S. Weatherby and Dr. H. W’ildon Carr will be given at the meeting of the Social Research Society, Friday afternoon at 4:00, in room 204, Hoose Hall. Dr. Weatherby, of the chemistry department, will discuss “Principles and Logic of Research in Chemistry.” Dr. Carr, of the philosophy department, wil speak on “Methods of Investigation and Research in Philosophy.” Dr. E. S. 3ogardus will preside as chairman. This University will be fifty years old in 1930. The statement in itself is not startling, but when it is understood that that fact is to be linked up with very definite plans for the expansion of the scope of the institution it means a good deal more. The administration is considering a committee to work out plans for what will be known as Southern California’s Semi-Centennial. When more definite word is given out it will be seen just wh§t this is to mean for the University. * * * Applications tor Trojan Knight membership may be obtained now from Miss Poetker in the booth in the student’s store. There is nothing to bar any sophomore from trying for membership in the organization. Contrary to some rumors membership in the Trojan Squires is not an essential to the older organization. All things being equal the Squire candidate may take preference over the man who has not had this training, but all the men taken in will not come from this group. * * * Eleanor Veale announces that there is going to be a conference of women debaters on this campus the first week of June. Campus or no campus, Southern California seems to be fast becoming a center of conferences. We have more conferences than there are national Special Weeks. And that is saying something. But it's a good thing. The West has been noted for its hospitality, as has the South, and true Westerners ought rightly to be proud of their reputation on that score and cultivate it. * * * Six weeks ago a certain Trojan heard that another man had done a certain dishonorable thing, in fact, was making a practice of doing it. Then he heard of another similar act, and another and another. Finally, in spite of his better judgment, he allowed himself to construct an unfair picture of the object of his misunderstanding without really going to the bottom of the question to make sure that the other man d^d not have a “side". The other day he lcarnetl that at least one of his suspicions was groundless and that the truth of the others were certainly open to question. But all he could do then was tell the accused individual he was sorry. * * * IF MORE PEOPLE WOULD .HONESTLY EXAMINE (Continued on Page Four) TO MARK ANNIVERSAR Y WINES AND BEER TO BE SUBJECT FOR DEBATE S. C. Team Will Meet University of New Mexico Tonight. “Resolved, That the sale and manufacture of light wines and beer should be legalized,” is to be the subject of a decision debate between Southern California and the University of New Mexico.

FOUNDED NEARLY 50 YEARS University Authorities Plan “Semi-Centennial” in 1930.

B. von Klein-Smid has announced that a Semi-Centennial committee is soon to be selected. The purpose of the university authorities in creating the Semi-Centennial committee is to further the development of the Alumni Association. A second reason is to prosecute the plans which the university has had under way for the past three years for the expansion and the extension of the service which Southern California renders to Los Angeles and the southern part of the state. Until the committee is selected the administration staff of the Universtiy will carry on the work. Harold How-lf.nd and Harold H.
