At a recent meeting, the alumni pledged themselves to subscribe at least $2,000.-000, and what the general public and special donors will give, depends very largely on the spirit shown by the students.” William Henley, president of the student body, delivered an inspiring address in which he visualized the future expansion of the university. University avenue was seen by Henley as a br^ad thoroughfare extending through the heart of the campus, lined with beautiful buildings in which were housed the schools and colleges of Southern California.

In return, and who knows if not in retaliation, Thelma Rear, president of Clionian, will speak in reply. At this time, the censors of the two societies will take charge of the meeting, and the program from this point. A program of eight events has been arranged, everyone of which is unique and different from anything that has ever been produced by these or any other literary society. To prove This also was a no-decision debate. All four speakers indulged in humor and rebuttal ability rather than a strict adherance to the topic in The Bovard debate. Inasmuch as the affair was strictly of a practice nature, and no decision was given, this was permissable. The debate season will get under way in earnest with the start of the second semester, and a heavy campaign has been arranged. Coach Alan Nichols will have two or more teams in the field throughout the entire schedule, and a road trip of some ex- Seven students outstanding in campus dramatic circles were pledged to National Collegiate Players, national honorary dramatic organization, Friday morning at the School of Speech recital in honor of their meritorious work in histrionic activities. The seven to receive this signal honor were: Avalon Daggett, Virginian Roediger, Lucile Taylor, Elizabeth A. Reade, Paul Kiepe, Webster Hayne and George Lawrence. Their purple and white pledge ribbons are marks of well-deserved honor. Avalon Daggett has acted in several campus productions. An oriental apprentice in “The Chinese Lantern” and the part of the. “Girl” in “The Wall,” an original play written by Dorothy Davis, are among her accomplishments. She recently took part also in “The Watteau Print,” given by the students of architecture. When Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” was presented last year she -was a member of the cast. Elizabeth A. ReaSe is actress, dramatist and director, aside from being the president of Touchstone Drama Shop, so varied are her talents and abilities. She was in the cast of “Adam and Eva” and was the author of “Honeymoon House,” one of the winning plays awarded presentation by the Ap-in “The Chinese Lantern”.

This talk was given by the eminent author and lecturer at the Asilomar conference before the representatives of the different schools gathered there and it was so well received that Page selected it for# the Wednesday night occasion. ♦- Page has been doing nothing but STUDENTS TO SOLICIT DONATIONS Expect Contributions of $75 From Each Student. writing and speaking in the field concerning the application of the religion of Jesus in personal life, and in social, economic, and international relations for the last five years. Previous to this time he was pastor of the Ridgewood Church of Christ in New York City. In the last ten years, this famous man has traveled more than 200,000 miles, crossing the ocean fourteen times, and visiting thirty different countries of Europe and Asia. He has spoken with and interviewed most of the leading men in the countries which he has visited. In addition to being a widely trav-1 eled person and a noted lecturer. Page is also an acclaimed author, ! and he has written eight books on social and international subjects. He has also arranged nine pamphlets i which have been translated into ten languages among which are the Indian and Arabian languages. More CARVER TALKS TO BEAR INSTITUTION Too Many Farmers, is Statement of Trojan Alumnus Speaking at Berkeley. There are too many farmers, Dr. Thomas Nixon Carver, Professor of Economics at Harvard University, told hte members of the Agricultural Ex- j tension Service in their annual conference, held at the University of California. Dr. Carver, answering affirmatively the question asked in the title of his lecture, “Are There Too Many Farmers?” gave three reasons for this condition: inelasticity of demand for farm products, increase of production per farmer, and families larger on farms than in cities. The farmer who has made money than 650,000 copies of these parnph- j has done it by reason of the fact that lets have been published. Articles written by Page appear in many magazines.

By WALTER PECK The student endowment drive for $150,000, with which to build a new library, opens tomorrow on the Trojan campus. .—Five hundred workers, under the direction of Paul Elmquist, general campaign chairman, will set out in the morning on the first lap of the three-day drive for subscription. To every student will be given the opportunity of contributing to the new library, inasmuch as each lieutenant in the campaign organization has only eight students allotted to him for solicitation. SUCCESS IMPERATIVE It is essential that everyone give as much as they can afford, because the success of. the entire $10,000,000 campaign for fhe development of a greater University of Southern California, depends upon the way in which the students put over their part of the program.

STUDENTS IMPORTANT The practical aspects of the student campaign were given by Paul Elmquist, general campaign chairman. He spoke primarily from the student view-point, making the object of the drive real to the students, announced that Walter Braun can read, and to prove it, he will give a reading at this time. Bonnie MacDonald will vary the monotony with an address on that most unusual subject “Books.” An accompaniment of ufceleles will feature the sixth event on the program, the musical assembly.

The cup is now being manufactured by Brock and Company, and will probably be presented at an assembly soon after it is delivered to Dean Waugh, the custodian. This cup is one of the three that have been donated by the Alumni Association, the others going to Occidental University and the University of California at Los Angeles. The award is not permanent, but changes hands every year, according to who is the winning fraternity. The names of the chapter, the fraternity, and the year will be engraved upon the cup, until the cup shall have been in existence for fifty years, when the presentation will be terminated, and it will be placed in a trophy room or case of the university on exhibition to the public. Tau Epsilon Phi will probably be presented the trophy for the remainder of this year. The cups were provided for and the arrangements made at the annual meeting, banquet, and conference, held Dec. 28, 1927, of the Inter-fraternity alumni association for Southern California, Dean Waugh attended the meeting from this university. Milton Sills was the chief speaker at the Lucille Taylor will be best remembered for her delineation of “Mrs. Pompenelli” in “The Torch-bearers,” presented by the under-class last year, and of the aunt of the little gold-digger in the “Rumpus of 1927”. She was also in “The Chinese Lontern”. KIEPE IS VERSATILE Paul Kiepe has alternated between acting and being master electrician for several campus productions. He had a part in “The Torchbearers” and was a member of the comedy team in them of the special program. The dinner will start at 5:30. If students wish to come after dinner to hear Page’s talk, they may do so, according to Glen Turner, secretary of the Y. M. C. A.

Most farmers are not so situated, he said, to raise other than staple crops; but California farmers are in a position to “cash in on” the demand for luxuries or specialty crops, the demand for which may be increased. The importation of cheap labor, said Dr. Carver makes it hard for the farmer who has to depend upon his own labor for profit, and the bringing in of cheap Mexican labor brings the Miss Tacie Mae “The Chinese Lantern”.

Hanna of the This will give everyone wishing to submit material time enough to recuperate from final examinations. The program of the winning material will be presented on May 4. The purpose of the Appoliead is to encourage students to do creative work. This is an unusual movement and one not sponsored by many universities. Essays, short stories, poems plays and music may be submitted. Information will be furnished by anyone in the English department or at the School of Speech office. There are criticisms of former productions which are the opinions of outstanding critics, in the office of the School of Speech, and they are available for the sue of student*. An exhibit of former programs is on the student body bulletin board. fornia as slavery did in the South before the Civil War. “Slavery in the South,” he said, “drove a wedge that raised those who were able to buy slaves to do their work, but lowered those who had to sell their labor to compete with that of the slaves. It made aristicrats above the wedge and poor white trash below. The same thing is likely to happen in California, and the introduction be very largely determined by the interest which the students themselves evince in the development of a greater university. An average gift of $75 is being sought from the students, and each person may write his own note to cover a period of five years, if he so desires. Payment on the note may be made in annual or semiannual installments. On a note for $75 to cover a five-year period, the annual installments would amount to $15, and the semi-annual installments, to $7.50. TEAM COMPETITION Competition will be encouraged between the four divisions and sixteen teams which comprise the student campaign organization, according to Morgan Cox. organization chairman. The relative standing of the divisions and teams, in respect to the total amount of subscriptions secured, will be given daily publicity. Each mem ber of the organization, except the managers and majors, whose duties are largely administrative, is respon- duction.
