Hope Elleston of St. John’s College, Oxford university, and B. I.

HAVE RECORDS Gregson Bautzer was captain of the Trojan Debate Squad last year, and last spring and summer was a member of the all-California student debate trio which appeared in verbal contests with representatives of colleges and universities in the east and in the British Isles, winning thirteen out of fifteen encounters. .B J.

Every fraternity on the campus, professional or social, will be Invited. Letters are being sent out by Emil Faust, Phi Tau president, to the heads of all other fraternities. Faust asked to have it said, however, that if any house failed to receive a mailed invita tion the omission would be due to error only, as ail presidents are urged to lend their cooperation ln sending men to the affair. Selection of Phi Kappa Tau as host from the list of more than fifteen houses on the list of applicants came about by reason of this fraternity’s early bid for one of tl)e Bmokers, according to the iuterfratern ty council committee on houae relations. Phi Kappa Psi was promised the next affair, and after that, choice will be made by drawing from a hat. Paul Zander, interfraternity council president, asked that the organlzat on presidents continue sending underclassmen to the gatherings, with a view toward getting them thoroughly acquainted with the men of other fraternities before the year is over. Over 300 men are expected by the council committee to attend the Phi Tau smoker, which will be similar to the first two, given at the S. A. E. and Sigma Nu houses.

CLASSICAL CLUB Students desiring to attend a luncheon of th"* Classical club lo be held In the patio of the Student Union and the play to be given afterward in Pasadena on Friday, are asked to sign on tbe bulletin board outs de of 208 or 110 Bridge before Friday. Outstanding developments In the newspapermen's athletic war yesterday, in addition to the usual exchange of secret long distance telephone conversations, were as follows: 1. Dean Putnam’s telegram from the University of California, which read: We regret exceedingly the newspaper controversy now being carried on over alleged professionalism. Please regard statements made by Ihe editor of the student paper or alleged by the press to have been made by Individuals hero as having no official authorization. It ls the practice of the administration not to Interfere with editorial policy of student papers ln view of the publicity given to alleged subsidization of athletes In conference institutions. I believe It would be best for all concerned to make thorough investigations of their own Institutions. The University of California wishes to place Itself on record as Intending to do this and trusts that other members of the conference will cooperate with It. 2. The reply of Hugh C. Willett, faculty athletic representative of Ihe University of Southern California to Dean Putnam: Let me thank you for your message. It will go a long way towards re-establishing our friendly feeling for California which has been sadly shaken by Ihe events of Ihe pant week. We regret that conditions make possible thn circulation of unofllclai and baseless accusations against Southern California and the misrepresentation of what we believe to be the true spirit of your university. Let me assure you that we shall continue our earnest efforts to maintain athletics at Southern California on a true amateur basis and In strict conformity to the letter and spirit of the rules of tho Pacific Coast conference and the triangular agreement. 3. The telegram from L. Stern Altshuler, president of the Associated Students of the University of California, to Lewis Gough, president of the Associated Students of S. C.: At a special meeting of the executive committee of the Associated Students of the University of California held today, unanimous vote of censure was placed upon JCdltor Arthur M. Arlett of the Dally Californian for the editorial he has recently written, the subject matter of which was ln no way sanctioned by the executive committee of the Associated Students. 4. The motion passed, after heated discussion, by the S. C. Legislative council last night: I move thnt this Legislative council, in regular session, and as representative of the student body of the University of Southern California, officially accept the explanation and apology of the student executive committee of the University of California, in which It Btates that It has reprimanded Arthur M. Arlett and that his editorials which appeared In the Dally Californian were unauthorized and not representative of tho University of California. We recognize this as the only official action of the University of California student body since the opening of the athletic controversy. This motion closes the controversy, as far as the students of Southern California are officially concerned. Pure tact causes me to refrain from saying whether or not I consider the two messages fiom the North as sufficient apologies. Funny. Isn’t lt? Montana Pupils Attend Classes As Strike Ends BOZEMAN, Mont., Nov. 18.— (UP)—After a Btrike of five days' duration, called in protest of fac ulty social regulations, Montana State college Btudents late today voted to return to school tomor row. The student senate was em powered to negot'ate with the administration for a reform In t|l«. social regulations after an impartial Investigation by Dr. Al fred Atkinson, president of the college, upon hla return from Washington. D. C. The students refused to attend classes last Friday when the fac ulty social committee announced that co-eds must be in their quar ters by 11 o’clock every night, Including week-ends. They also ob ected to several other restrictions. Barristers Vote Two-to-One for Dry Law Repeal CHICAGO.

FORD STARTS PLANT8 DETROIT.
