FACULTY REJECTS PLANS SUBMITTED BY COMMITTEE Student Welfare Group Present Plans for University Improvement. Contrary to previous arrangements the plans which were submitted by the Student Welfare committee to the Administration for approval were rejocted due to the fact that the project would involve the expenditure of too large a sum of money. The plan as it was originally stated would Involve the exclusion of outsiders from the rooting sections at the major football contests Miniature pictures were to be taken aud placed on the identification card. The business office would stamp a portion of these pictures. When the student applies to the ticket office for a rooters ticket for the major contests he will LEO GRUDIN sign for the ticket then. At the gate his signature on the ticket will be compar ed with that of his signature on the identification hook. If anyone of these fail to tally with each other he will be subject to sentence to be imposed by any one of the student governing bodies, such as the W.S.G.A. court, the Men's council, the Legislative council, and the Student Welfare committee. Judgement may result ln expulsion from the university and the withdrawal by the administration of any student privileges. The Student Welfare committee is functioning for the first time ln the student administration this year with Leo Grudin as chairman. Many campus problems have been brought to the attention of this group and will form a nucleus upon which the committee for next year will work and function. Some of the more prominent problems which have been considered aside from that of the conduct at the rooting sections, and restraining outsiders from sitting in the section during the games, are (Continued on Page Two) ROLPH SIGNS CORPORATION FINANCE ACT Commissioner’s Power Increased Through In-' junction Proceedings. LOS ANGELES, Mi»y 26—(UP) I —Governor James Rolph Jr., signed the revised Corporate Securl ] ties act, California’s “blue sky” | law. In the offices of the state corporation department here late today. The law, regarded by business leaders as one of the best protective measures for the investing public in the United States, gives the state corporation commissioner greatly increased power. Through injunction proceedings, the commissioner is empowered under the present law to halt any questionable promotion scheme In any California county, and has ac cess to the books and records of companies at all times. State corporation commissioner Raymond L. Haight declared the right to institute injunction pro ceedings was the most important addition of the forty-eight amend ments and eight added sections to the act. "As the law stood," he explained, "weeks or months might elapse before a case can be presented to the district attor ney. Under the new section, however ,the commissioner can seek relief for investors immediately by applying for an injunction.” The revisions in the act, it was claimed, were intended to prevent recurrence of the $8,000, 000 defalcation of Gilbert Beesemyer from the Guaranty Building and Loan company of Hollywood.

C. Latin Club Farewell Banquet Will Take Place Shakespearean Comedy Chosen As School of Speech Production Under the direction of Miss Florence Hubbard, with her two student assistant directors, Mar lan Leonard and Miriam Brownstetter, the School of Speech play, The Merchant of Venice" ls rap idly nearing; perfection. The drama will be presented In Bovard auditorium, June 3, as part of the regular commencement week program. Miss Hubbard, the director of the play, ls a professor in the School of Speech and was the Inaugurator of the annual School of Speech production. As its director, she has led it through many years of successful performances. The first experiment of Shakespeare in modern dress in California was made by the School of Speech under her direction. During the past two years, Miss Hubbard directed a pageant for the annual production, but thii year she is returning to the presentation of one of Shakespeare's plays, due to the great demand for them by both faculty and students. After a consideration of several plays, tragedy being the difficult to stage with amateur actors, Miss Hubbard chose Shakespeare’s best known comedy, “The Merchant of Venice” for the 1931 presentation. The story deals with race prejudice In the middle ages, the characters being Italian merchan' princes and Jew money lenders. The scheming old Jew, Shylock who is exacting in the demand that his contract for a pound of flesh be carried out, is foiled by the young woman lawyer, Portia, in disguise ,who forbids him to lose a drop of blood in the taking of the flesh. Several undercurrent love themes and comedy plots run beneath this main theme of the play. 1300 Graduates To March In Colorful Pageant At Baccalaureate Services By GRACE WALKER Garbed In cap and gown, approximately 13t*0 graduates will march along University avenue, through Exposition park, and Into the Coliseum Sunday (May 21) for the 1931 baccalaureate services which are scheduled for four o'clock.

The Semi-Centennial Ode. written by Floy Bernice Palmer and Mable Woodworth, will be chanted by the university glee clubs accompanied by the orches fra. , In the processional the graduates will carry over their left arms significant emblems — the hoods to be placed on their shoulders by their reapectiv deans as insignia of the field of knowledge in which they are re celvlng their university degrees. In the recessional the seniors will present an Interesting well as a colorful sight, as the black hoods, falling from their shoulders, will reveal a yellow-gold silk lining, bespeaking their Alma Mater, and taken from the cardinal-and-gold of the Institution's standard. Hood borders of silk, satin, or velvet, will be of the following colors, representing the major department from which the wearer is being graduated: Letters. Arts, and Sciences, white (originally ermine). School of Law, purple. School of Pedagogy and Educa tion, light blue. School of Philosophy, blue. Department of Science, gold-yellow.

Doctors’ caps only may be made of velvet, the Masters’ and Bachelors' being made of cotton or silk. The Doctors' cap has a gold tassel, while the others are black. Because of possible color duplications among the 800 degree-giving institutions of the United States, some universities have a Bhevron or stripe through the cetj ter of the hood lining, using the remaining color or colors of the institution. Still other colleges place one color on the right side and another on the left side, or one color in the upper half and the other In the lower half of the hood lining.
