Dr. Marion McKinley Bovard was the first leader. His presidency was terminated by his death in 1891. Dr. J. P. Widney, "strong, courageous, vigorous, and energetic," who was elected president in 1892, and “he filled the student body and the faculty with new hope and fresh courage.” His brother, the late Dr. Robert M. Widney, was one of the founders of S. C. The year 1894-95 marked the beginning of a radical and fundamental change in the aims, methods, concepts, and spirit of the young institution. At the close of this year’s momentous work, Dr. Widney resigned as president. President George W. White's four-year administration (1895-1899) saw new apparatus and facilities added, a growing library, and athletics intro duced. A School of Oratory was es tablished in 1895; a department of Pedagogy was introduced in 1896; the Dental School was founded in 1897 and an art school developed during tbis period. After a fruitful four years of oflice Dr. White resigned, and for five years, from 1899 to 1903, the University of Southern California was directed by the president of the Board of Trustees and the Deans, including Dr. George Cochran. In 1901 the Los Angeles Law School affiliated with the University, marking the beginning of the present School of Law of S. C. 1903 MAKES PROGRESS When Dr. George Finley Bovard was elected president in 1903, another new era was Inaugurated at the University of Southern California.

STUDENTS Continued on Page Two MID-YEAR SCHEDULE OPENS JANUARY 24 The text of a New Year’s greeting to the Trojan student body, telegraphed from Leo Adams yesterday at Palo Alto, where he is attending a conference of student body executives, is as follows: ‘‘I sincerely hope that thi3 holiday lias been a most beneficial as well as an enjoyable one for you. Let us resolve, with the coming of the New Year, that we will resume our tasks with renewed vigor and energy, so that we may make this fiftieth year in the history of Southern California, one of the finest that it has ever enjoyed. "At Southern California, 1930 means to us the Semi-Centennial year, which is to be marked by the Semi-Centennial celebration in June. As students at this great institution it is our duty to make this year remembered, and as sve build for a fine year in 1930. it will only tend to strengthen the position that w*e already enjoy.” (signed) Leo Adams, Student Body President. POLICE SCHOOL Willamette University, January 3 — (PIP) — Plans are being made for the operation in the Willamette university law department of a po lice schol to be held in February, rom the third to the eighth inclu sive. The program will consist of five courses of from one to six lectures each on psychology, law, and public relations of police officers and their work. The faculty will be made up 3f prominent law enforcement officers. attorneys, and professors from Oregon universities. Finals To Extend Over Six Days; Registration Opens February 3; Credit Summaries Important Mid-year examinations are officially scheduled to begin Friday, January 24, and continue until Thursday, January 30, with the exception of the Dental and Music colleges. Second semester registration will begin on Monday, February 3, and continue until February 5, when the second semester opens, according to Theron Clark, registrar. Before second Bemester registration, Clark advises each student to review his credit summary whish was given to him at registration. Often the student discards this summary, not realizing its value, but it is important and should be reviewed before making out the second semester program. Special attention should be given to his scholastic average by students on probation, stated the registrar. Clark 'urges that students continue to report to his ofllce if they change their ad-' dress. If a student moves, it Is important that he report his change of address in writing and dated, to the oflice of the registrar. Official withdrawal from a course is also important. If a student wishes to drop a course, he should get a change of registration card at the registrar’s office, obtain the necessary signatures, and return the card. This method is employed to avoid confusion as to the grade in the course at the end of the semester. “With continued cooperation between the students and the registrar, we may look forward to a successful second semester,” Clark stated.
