NUMBER 31 Stickers For Hello Week To Be Given STUDENT ACTIVITY CARDS NECESSARY AT UNIVERSITY DIG Bachelors' Club to Sponsor D;»?ce T° Be Held Next Monday Evening In Student Union Social Hall. “Hello and Smile” Week Beginning Next Monday. In order that all new students who have not yet had the opportunity of meeting the outstanding people on the campus, may do so, the Bachelors’ club Is sponsoring a "Hello and Smile” week. During the entire week ot Novem. her 4 to 9, special events will take place dally, and real friendship of Trojans, on and off the campus is to be expected. "Hello and Smile” week, which has become a yearly affair will probably be much bigger this year, according to Lari'}' Weddle, president of the committee sponsoring the daily events. It Is planned to decorate all Trojan automobiles with windshield stickers bearing the motto, "Hello and Smile." All students will further be requested to wear tags of the same description. Full committees have not as yet been formed, although much time and effort are being put into the work. The week will end with a formal dinner-dance at the Deauville beach club, November 9. This will be the most elaborate affair this year, according to the Bachelors. SPECIAL INVITATIONS ISSUED FOR DANCE Class Officers Send Out Bids For College Orchestra; Feature Acts Planned. As guests at the annual law dance sponsored by the freshman law class, several Los Angeles lawyers and judges, including Judge Clair S. Tappaan and Dean Justin Miller of the School of Law, have been invited. The dance is scheduled to be given Saturday evening, November 16, at the Town House. For the first time since the freshman class has been giving annual dances, special invitations have been sent to alumni of the school. An ef- Every man attending the second All-U dig, Monday, November 4, will be requested to present student activity card along with the 25 cents before being admitted to tho social hall of the Student Union building. This requirement is made so that there will be fewer non-university men attending the digs. Hay Hatfield’s seven piece orchestra Is to play for the evening. Along with the orchestra, Hatfield has two men who sing and will entertain during the evening. Informality is to be carried out during the entire evening. Every dance will be a cut dance and it is to be considered perfectly correct during the evening for any men seeing an attractive girl to cut in and dance with her. It has been arranged that the cloak room will be open for tbe convenience ot those attending the affair. The platform for the orchestra will be placed in front of the women's lounge as before and the rugs In part of the men's lounge will be rolled up for dacning. It Is asked that men smoking in the lounge please use the ash trays provided Instead of throwing lialf-smoked cigarettes on the rugs. It is asked that men co-operate in keeping the stag line as far back in the room as possible so that there will be more room for those who are dancing. It is permissable that the stag line form in the center of the room, but it those men standing around the outside of the dancers will stand back against the walls there will be more room for those dancing. Gymnasium Ground Broken In Month ADAMS SENDS SYMPATHY TO PARENTS "The Associated Students of the University of Southern California expresses its sincere regret to the parents of our unfortunate fellow students’ who met such an untimely death while returning from the game with Stanford University. "The absence of these men from the ranks of the student body will be keenly felt; Southern California, too, has suffered an irreparable loss. “LEO ADAMS” President A. S. U. S. C. CLASS WILL GIVE THREE-ACT DRAMA ON NOVEMBER 15 'Craig’s Wife” by George Kelly To Be Given By Seniors In Bovard Auditorium. "Ground for the new gymnasium may be broken within a month, but the actual construction work can not possibly begin until the early part of next year.” This was the statement made by C. E. Sims, university engineer. Work has been delayed for several reasons. There was considerable delay ill the removal of the old building from fort is being made to sell tickets to I t)le site which is directly behind the all of the upper classmen of the | Administration building. Also, tbe school, anu promises to attend have J plans, especially the more detailed been made by a number of the law drawings, are not yet comp’ete. Song and Yell Contest Ends All Entries Must Be In Box In Students Store by Noon Today. All songs and yells to be entered in the Yell and Song cotnest for the S. C.-California game Saturday, must be in the contest box in the Student Store by noon tomorrow for final judgment by the committee. “We want more yells submitted,” declared Sam Newman, chairman of the Rally committee, ’’yells of every variety .short ones, long ones, but they must have 'punch' and originality.” Several songs and yells have both been turned in already but there is still ample opportunity to win the fifteen-dollar desk set which is being offered as the prize for the best yell submitted. A separate trophy is to be given for the best song also, and a song is wanted particularly to supplement the S. C. "Fight On” song at moments when it is not especially apt to the occasion. Yells are wanted which present possibilities for new stunts in the bleachers and which are original enough and clever enough to be popular additions to our present standard ] selection. The contest Itself was instigated by j student officials in response to an | (Continued on Page Four) "Craig's Wife,” a three act drama by George Kelly, will be presented as the annual senior class play In Bovard auditorium on Friday, November 15. Catherine Stone, a senior in thu School of Speech, will play the title role of Mrs. Craig in the production, which is under the direction of W. Ray MacDonald, university play director. The play is a psychological drama which will require excellent interpretation to put across the footlights. The part of Mrs. Craig is a difficult one for she is not at all a likable character. The action of the play centers around Mrs. Craig and her methods of making life miserable for her husband, aunt, servants, and everyone with whom she comes in contact. Mrs. Craig is looking out for herself, and when, in the end, she is left with only her home, the question is raised in the minds of the audience as to whether she is happy now that she has what she wants. William Kauffman, president of the School of Speech, is to play the part of Mr. Craig. Phyllis Omeron will be Miss Austen, Mr. Craig’s aunt. Mrs. Harold, the housekeeper, will be played by Gladys Ockerman, while the maid, Mazie, will be portrayed by Marvel Kelley. Marie Parenteau will play Ethel Landreth, Mrs. Craig's niece, and her fiancee will be impersonated by Mark Schmidt. Others in tlie cast are Ruth Wilson as Mrs. Frazier: Leonard Rosoff as Billy Birkmire and Harry, and Joe Cohn as Catelle, the detective. Women Plan Taxi Service For Monday Cardinal and Gold Sweaters and Placards to Distinguish Drivers and Cars. Cardinal and gold sweaters and huge placards bearing the word “Taxi” will distinguish the drivers and their cars. The fare anywhere on the campus charged by the co-eds will be from ten to twenty-five cents. The cars will go anywhere on the campus. A space reserved in front of Bovard auditorium for the taxis. Students are asked to keep the space clear for the cars. Taxi service will be operating in the evening and cars will be waiting on fraternity row to take students to the all-U "dig.” Cars will be available after the dance and the taxi service will probably close at nine-thirty. The purpose of “Taxi Day” according to Grace Wright, chairman of the committee, is to raise money for the Women’s Self-Government association loan fund which is available each year for some worthy girl. Large posters announcing the event will appear soon, and the committee in charge are working to make "Taxi Day” the most successful one in the history of the university, stated Miss Wright. fraternities. Proceeds from the dance will be used by the freshman association to finance a "ditch day” to be held next spring. Bids have been set out to the different college orchestras and, according to Martin Malone, president of the freshman class and supervisor or dance plans, it is assured that one oi the best orchestras ou the campus will be secured. Several feature acts will be given during the evening. "Students will realize the immense amount of detail work necessary in the planning and construction of such a gymnasium as we mean to build," said Sims. "I have seen the plans as far as they are completed and 1 am sure that the edifice will surpass all expectations. At present, it is impossible to state the exact date of completion, but we may be reasonably certain that it will be ready for use about the beginning of the fall semester." versify c°Urse ig '!tW practlc*l aeronautlca •*«fy an„, “ *;lvel morfi details from lc*l as . ,t.'c 8U,,Jec<. mechan-"‘•II as theoretical LA TERTULIA PLANS IMPORTANT MEETING An important meetJng of La Ter-tulia, Spanish club ot the university, will be held Tuesday evening, Oe-tober 29, ill room 24 Bridge hall, at _j p. m.
