Adm. Chester VV.

Tommy Troian is stili in his fighting stance out in front of Administraton, but he no longer has anythng to fight with. The spirit is still there but the sword is missing. Have you seen anyone wandering around lately with a sword under his arm? If you have or do it’s your patriotic duty as a loyal Trojan to ask him, politely of course, If by any chance he happens to have stolen his sword from Tommy Trojan at SC. It just so happened that at the same time that the sword disappeared, a blue and gold UCLA banner was discovered at the top of the SC flag pole. (The Stars and Stripes have not disappeared as previously reported.) There may not be any connection between these two incidents, but one has a right to wonder, hasn't one? ---—--------- Program to feature American Red Latin American themeCross offers nursing courses “Buenos amigos, the annual spring concert presented by the Men’s and Women’s Glee clubs will be dedicated to you,” announced Prof. Charles C.

SC to add two new instructors music, and it will help to symbolize the corresponding native festivities. Jose Brandeo, a professor of music in the Musk university of Rio de Janeiro who is at present attending SC, has arranged two of the concert numbers for presentation. Brandeo is one of South America’s foremost modern interpretative composers and is noted for his ability to catch the spirit of the native customs and rituals in his music. His two presentations are “Ma-cumba” and "Noranina,” the first expressing the fear and mystery in the primitive ritual against evil spirits. This is a ceremony practiced by the African Negro slaves in which Two visiting Instructors will be added to the faculty of the College of Architecture and Fine Arts for j they dance and sing to drive away the summer session, according to Lester B. Rogers, dean of the Summer School. The new instructors are Francis de Erdley of the Pasadena Art institute and Dr. George H. Huntley of the University of Chicago. De Erdley is a lecturer in painting who has studiedN in Hungary, Belgium, Paris, and the Hague. He is evil spirits. A principal character called Pae Di Santo (Father of Saints) directs the ceremony to drive the terror and awe that surrounds the whole ceremony. “Nozanlna” is a direct opposite in spirit and emotion from the first selection. It is imbued with the hilarity and drunken merriment of the African festivities. The popular Trojan Male quartet •Occupation of Germany wilL last r many years,” stated Dr. von “ofe, “and thousands of men and Iwomen, of civilian as well as military status, will be sent to Germany in the years to come.” Varied types of positions, all requiring a knowledge of the German language, are open under the administration of the SHAEF. A number of SC graduates already are engaged in some type of work in these fields. Agencies through which people will be sent to Germany include the state department, the office of war Information, the office of strategic services, the department of commerce. and the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation administration. Base salaries for most of the jobs range from $2400 per year up, plus $200 monthly for expenses hen overseas. In the state department a num-r of analysts for assignment in ermany for a period of 6 to 18 onths are urgently needed. The ork entails the study of files and ecords of German industrial, fi-ancial, and insurance firms, and ys a base salary ranging from to $4600 per year. Executive or analytical experience in business or industry gained in commercial, industrial, or financial organzation, or in the government, is considered as qualifying. A reading knowledge of German is also essential for these jobs. Positions with the office of strategic services are mostly military, although a number of jobs for civilians are also available. In addition to the intelligence staff, the work includes organizational work and investigation of German factories which during the war were engaged in the manufacture of military products. Under UNRRA, many workers to deal with the re-establishment and relocation of displaced persons, German and non-German, will be needed. Other social service work is also included in this division. The department of commerce has not yet set up an overseas division, but a resumption of trade is expected to bring many opportunities for positions with the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce. The office of war information at the present time has a wide (Continued on Page Three) known for his prize-winning of V-12s Dave Burnight, Ed Scott, achievements in Ghent, Spain, Am- Dick Thorpe, and Burl Smith will sterdam. Paris, and in a score of ------------------------------------------------ cities in ^he United States. Dr. Huntley, author and lecturer in flne arts, has been affiliated with Washington university and since 1938 has been at the University of Chicago. In addition to painting, subjects of sculpture, ceramics, and jewelry are included in the summer session , ‘ / * • j program^ Dean Rogers stated. Other features of the program are the songs “You and the Night and the Music” and “Go Down Moses” by the Women’s Glee club, and a hill-billy duet by Helen Sowers and Ruth Volz. The Men s Glee club will present ‘Wanting You” and "The Very Thought of You.” This program today will combine the annual concert of the Glee clubs with another move of the' university toward a good neighbor policy between the students of our country and the students of the South American nations. Many of the Latin American students who are now attending SC will be as interested in this program as the “natives” of the United States, as it will combine the music of their own countries with that of the country they are visiting. The composer responsible for an important part of the program, Brandeo, is also an exchange student at SC coming from his native country of Brazil. He was a collaborator of Villa-Lobos, a series of compositions which combine the varied moods and feelings of the Negro natives on the Brazilian farms. Brandeo had a good chance to study their rituals as he lived in this atmosphere of “voodoo” for many years. Professor Hirt, visiting professor in charge of the glee clubs, is in charge of the program. be held at the Los Angeles chapter, Red Cross house, 1200 South Vermont avenue. “No registrations can be made on campus. Those women who are interested in taking the course must register at the Red Cross house not later than the end of this month.” commented Ann Pearce, head of the SC unit of nurses’ aides. " The July 9th course has been reserved for SC women, and we would prefer to have all Trojan women register for this class. At the end 6f the six-week course, the women will be capped and will be qualified to serve as registered nurses’ adies,” added Miss Pearce. For further information, women may call the Los Angeles Red Cross chapter at Fitzroy 5261, extension 63. or may get in touch with Ann Pearce at Prospect 6701. El Rod sales end Friday “Only three more days remain to purchase your yearbook,” stated Clarice Thurman, editor of the annual. “The definite sales figure must be computed this week, as printing is now in progress.” Orders for the El Rodeo may be purchased from the cashier in the Student Union and it is priced at $5. "Mailing services are available for those students leaving school before the yearbook comes out,” said Bob Tapp, business manager. “Students are asked to sign their white cards, write their addresses on the back, and leave them with 50 cents at the cashier’s cage in the Union.” “This must be done this week,” Tapp stated. “The mailing services are offered especially to trainees leaving the campus and to graduating seniors.” Trackmen called Track team members are asked to report to Bovard field at 4:30 p.m. tomorrow for their El Rodeo pictures. Poles summoned to Moscow meet LONDON, June 13.—(U.P.)—A simultaneous Big Three statement issued in London, Washington, and Moscow announced early today that 12 representative Poles, including three from London, had been invited to confer in Moscow Friday on the future of their country, which is one of the most troublous of all Allied prob- lems. Representatives of the Russian-sponsored Lublin regime now in Warsaw, democratic Polish leaders elsewhere in Poland and democratic Polish leaders outside the country were invited. Former Premier Stanislaw Mikola jczyk of the Polish government in exile here, former labor minister Jan Stanczyk and social worker Julyan Zakowski were invited from London and were expected to leave for Moscow Thursday. The announcement at once gave hope in diplomatic quarters that at last some progress might be made in setting up a broadly representative Polish government on a basis satisfactory to the United States and Great Britain as well as to Russia. Mikolajczyk is the Polish peasant party leader, a moderate who is regarded as a possible candidate for a Polish government of national unity as foreseen in the Big Three Yalta agreement. No representatives of the London Polish government were on the list of persons invited. There were four from the Warsaw Polish administration, includ- ing Boleslaw Bo rut, its president, and Edward Osubka Morawski, prime minister. The list also includes five men described as democratic leaders from Poland: Vicenty Witos. peasant party leader and twice prime minister; Zygmund Zulawski. socialist party leader; Stanislaw Kut-rzebra, historian of Cracow university; Adam Krzyzanowski, economics professor at Cracow; and Henry Kolodzeiski, formerly librarian of the Polish parliament. Diplomatic quarters were cautious in predicting success for the conference but at least the deadlock in negotiations had been broken and the Russians had taken a long step toward meeting Anglo-American desire for a really Polish government instead of one sponsored by Russia alone. The conference was called by foreign commissar Viachesla Molotov and the American and British ambassadors to Russia, W. Averell Harriman and Sir Archibald Clark Kerr in the name of the Allies. Obviously it had the approval of Marshal Josef Stalin as well as of President Truman and Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Navy, marines set for dress parade “The marine detachment. NROTC, and V-12 of SC will participate in a dress parade on Bovard field at 4:30 p.m. today,” Comdr. Phillip R. Baker announced yesterday. This will be the final parade of the term, during which awards will be made to four naval students. Cadet Lt. Comdr. Duane Whitehead will be presented the award for the “First Classman who has shown the most outstanding qualities of military character and leadership during the past term.” The award for the “First Classman who, by the manner of performance of his duties, has contributed most to the organization and morale of the Unit,” will be given to Cadet Lt. Comdr. Jack A. Cortright. Individual public awards will be made to two V-12 students, for the first time, today. “Letters of commendation for outstanding military character and leadership will be presented to Donald A. Quinn, Battalion Comdr., and Leland H. Scott, leader of the V-12 band and student body president of SC,” stated Commander Baker. There will be no color company in today’s parade, as that is an annual event which occurs at the end of each wipter term. Commander Baker announced that, “all students, faculty, and friends are invited to attend the parade.” President's office notice It will be our privilege to hear the University Glee clubs at an all-university assembly today at 10:40 a.m. The following class schedule will govern class meetings: 8:00— 8:50 8:55— 9:45 9:50—10:35 10:40—11:25 assembly 11:30—12:15.
