Oct. 8. — <U.P) — The New1 Deal took its first step tonight to bring the $13,000,000,000 public utility industry under strict federal regulation. First rules and regulations under the new utility act went forward to the industry from the Federal Power and Securities exchange commis-soins while heads of the two agencies sought to assuage fears of some concerning effects of the legislation. “Power companies which are conducting their enterprises legitimately and in the public interest have no reason to be apprehensive of the act or its administration,” said Chairman Frank R. McNinch of the power commission. “We look forward to cooperation of utility companies.” said Chairman James Landis of the Securities and Exchange commission. “We will make no attempt to deny anyone involved their constitutional rights. There is no reason why investors should be frightened or sell their utility stocks because of this act.” Landis agreed that a supreme court test of the measure’s constitutionality was inevitable. He does not expect such a test to reach the high court for many months and will make no effort to obtain such a ruling until a clear cut challenge of the act is raised by the industry.

Overflowing with localized humor, the October Wamp. first under the new editorial regime, was expected to be a sell-out before the sun set Different at the outset, since it is said to be the first “frosh’ college humor magazine to be published not to carry a peagreen colored cover, the Wampus contains an entirely new typographical style as well as renoated writing presentation. Several features which attracted note last year however, have been retained. Take-a-Look Advice to freshmen, running from a parody of the Frosh Handbook, to a subtle article in regard to the “Take-a-Look-at-the-B a c k-Door" campaign, pervades the edition.

Deep in the recesses of the magazine lies the “bigger and best” entertainment section, with a newly inaugurated rating system of local night spots being presented. By no means to the Wampus critics confine themselves to this entertainment feature, for they also rate late recordings and radio programs of the moment as well. Manderbaugh Assists J. Claude Manderbaugh. noted man-about-campus. begins his second year of activity for the Wampus by disclosing the inside on fraternity rushing, and then continues by “baring all" in how the Sig Eps get thelir men. “The Sad Case of Asquith K. Borklittle” is another feature article. Completing the magazine is an extensive article on the football schedule, stressing the intersectional aspect to the twelve-game campaign of Coach Howard Jones’ football team. Plenty of gags and cartoons are also included. S. C. Flyer Reaches City Of Mexico; Is Forced To Stop in Wilds MEXICO CITY. Oct. 8— Ending a strain of increasing anxiety, Frank Kurtz, youthful University of Southern California ath-lete-aviator, brought his tiny Mo-nasco-motored monoplane to earth here tonight, after being overdue for more than twenty hours.

Pressure Fails “With Mexico City only a few hours away, I decided to proceed but after about an hour my wobble pump began to give me trouble and the oil pressure was getting low, so rather than take a chance, I decided to land. “Within a few minutes I spotted a cornfield and was able to make a good landing. I prepared to spend the night in the ship when a couple of peons came along and showed me where the town was.” Kurtz told the United Press he also had trouble taking off from the cornfield and “nearly cracked up” but finally got enough of a run to get the ship into the air and “here I am.” Frank Kurtz, S.C. student, landed safely in Mexico City after being unreported for 20 hours.
