Lewis, Says Green Power of Expulsion May Be Given to Council; No Drastic Action TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 17—(ir.Pi—The American Federation of Labor will not expel John L. Lewis and his “rebel" CIO aides at Its 56th annual convention but may clothe thc executive council with this power if future peace conversations between the warring forses falls. President William Green indicated tonight. "In my opinion,” Green told newspapermen at the close of the second day’s sessions, "the wise and best course is for the convention to refrain from taking drastic action." Committee Will Continue He then proposed that the standing committee of the executive council, named weeks ago to meet with the “rebels,” continue to function. This committee is comprised of Matthew Woll, of the Photo-Engravers and chairman of the convention's resolutions committee; George M. Harrison, youthful and shrewd head of the Railway clerks, and Felix Knight, president of the Railway carmen. Authority Discussed This group should be available, Green continued, to meet with the Lewis group in the event it decides to name a mediation committee. "In the pursuance of this policy,” Green explained, "the convention can cofer on the executive council authority to deal with the situation during the ensuing year in such a way and in such a manner as circumstances may warrant." e Kincaid Will Mock Victims real justice assured both parties by the presence rior Court Judge Clarence Cosmopolitans To Arrange All Campus Dinner Principally to further acquaint foreign students of the university with each other, a Cosmopolitan club luncheon wili be held Friday noon In Elisabeth von KleinSmid hall, announced Jose Antonio Ca-| ceres, president of the organization, yesterday.

After a blood transfusion failed to improve her condition, the 75-year-old diva lapsed into a coma shortly before 6 p.m. and died without regaining consciousness. Three Generations She was surrounded by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who had been called to her side when the blood ailment with which she was chronically afflicted became critical She died quietly a few minutes later. "Death Came Peacefully" "Death came very peacefully,’ her son, George Schumann, said "We were called into the room just a few minutes before she died. Four of her children were with her at the time. "The two grandchildren, Barbara Schumann-Heink, son of my brother, Henry, and Zelda Schumann-Heink, son of Hans, who died in thc war, were In another room.” Funeral Announced Funeral arrangements will be announced tomorrow, but they will be private, with only members of the family and a few intimate friends present.

Schumann-Heink who won the name of “mother of all the doughboys" when she sang inde-fatlgably through the w'orld war, pleaded with her physician lor "just a little more of life — a chance to do a little more good.” Dr. Alter, after reporting that a series of blood transfusions beginning early this week had failed to counteract the inroads of blood dy-crastla. the ailment from which the diva has suffered for years, summoned members of her family. Famed Singer Was U.S.C. Supporter The famed singer had long been a good friend of the University of Southern California, and a close acquaintance of Dr. and Mrs. Rufus B. von KleinSmid. Often, she expressed the wish to "settle down, near the Trojan campus,” when her endless crusade to bring happiness had been completed. Whenever asked to sing at university graduations she congenially and readily accepted, as her friends at the school were innumerable.

Session Friday A formal motion for constitutional amendment will be presented by Draper in a special senate session Friday noon. The straw consensus resulted. Article two of the constitution, defining ASUSC membership, states among other qualifications that i student. In order to vote in stU' dent body elections, must have pur chased a membership card at the fitlnulated fee. In moving repeal of the voting privilege clause Friday. Draper will seek to remove the $10 barrier that the present clause puts in the way of non-membership students. Still No Derision The meeting last night was ad Journed without deciding in favor of either strict or loose construction regarding the application of ac tivlty cards to participation in extracurricular undertakings; hence President Johnson will still be the sole Judge of activities in which membership is to be essential. "This student government is fast becoming a glorified country club,’ said Draper in complaining against the banishment from certain activities of those students who have not paid $10. “There’s a big fee to belong to this club and, yet the majority of students Isn’t in It." Jack Privett answered Draper. "Well, it Is like a club." he contended "Members pay $10 for certain rights and commodities.

Commerce Film Will Be Shown Lost, Strayed, Stolen? U.S.C. Librarian Gone Doheny librarians are all at sea, literally and figuratively. And when librarians are "at sea," so are metropolitan news sheets. Miss Frances M. Christeson, reference librarian at Doheny library, went vacationing on a freighter known as the Timber Rush. The 5000-tonner sailed from Boston lo the Canal Zone, and started Puget Sound-ward. According to spme reports 170 miles south, according to others 250 miles north, of San Salvador "something happened.” And so U. S. C. has its puzzle of the missing librarian. Her fellow laborers don't know whether to take up a collection for flowers or for a 6-dollar radiogram. Either nobody knows or will divulge the whereabouts of the Timber Rush. Librarian, librarian, who's got the librarian? Wampus staff had never asked for charity, the editor pointed to the one previous issue of the magazine for which he was responsible, and demanded to know who had started the rumor that he hud his staff out begging lor material. "When my staff needs a sketch or a story or even one of those scathing satires for which the Wampus has become Infamous, they just go out. knock the owner down and take it away from him There ls nothing backward about my boys and girls. They have pride; they never beg. They Just snip lt and bring it home to me." In the face of protestations from upstanding members of the staff, whose number Larkin reports has been decimated, that such tactics constituted plagarism, the editor said, “If the purported humor is suggestive and subtle, my public demands it. Our readers whimper for more guttural laughs, and I am here to say that I will not see these poor Innocents denied of their food. Charity is my middle name Would you huve our babies crying for a stimulating laugh even lf lt must be stolen. No, a thousand times no.” Intending to bolster his laugh-lined features are numberless Jokes which he has "borrowed” from other college comics. Students Receive El Rodeo Refunds Nearly 400 U. S. C. students will receive 50 ccnts refund on pictures taken for the 1037 edition of El Rodeo. The refund ls the result of a change ln price schedule from $1.50 to $1.00 per sitting. In order to facilitate distribution of the money, checks drawn by the comptroller for sums stipulated by Joe Mingo, university photographer, will be sent to treasurers of fraternity and sorority houses with instructions for them to parcel out the Individual refunds. In explaining thc proceedure, Myron E. Quill, assistant comptroUer of the university, emphasized, "Because of the tedious process of compiling the photographer’s records, it will be at least a week before students may expect to receive their money.” Mingo said yesterday, "I wish to have evpry student entitled to a refund realize that money will be distributed not through the photography studio but through fraternity and sorority treasurers.” The only students who will receive their refunds through Mingo are the non-organized students. They may call at the studio sometime after the Thanksgiving holidays to get their money.

Freshmen To Plan Brawl The meeting of the freshman brawl committee, originally scheduled for 10 o'clock this morning, has been postponed till Friday morning at the same time, according to Niel Deasy, class president. Deasy requests that all members note the change and make a special effort to be present. "University and college bookplates have a long and Interesting history. Thc earliest one represented in the exhibit is that of Harvard university, dated 1650, and designed Instution-al bookplates vary as greatly as do the institution', they represent, and close inspection often reveal many Interesting symbols in the design,” commented Miss Christian R. Dick, librarian, in speaking of the exhibit. Bookplates have become more than a mere mark of ownership. Through their design, method of production, and paper, they express symbolically the individuality of their owner, whether personal or institutional. e; Nelson Avers bookplates, among which ls Mrs __ Talbot’s most recent work "Historic '• f u I ly-iji California Bookplates.” The use of | IVI IV bookplates as a mark of personal ownership dates back to the beginning of printing The Oermans made the first alter block printing had been perfected.

Tonight at 8 o'clock, the Squires will meet with Trojan Knights at the Zeta Beta Tau house, James declared. "Both meetings today will be official." James added, "and absence from either will constitute an official absence on the roll book. It is especially imperative that every Squire attend the joint meeting with the Knights.”
