S.C. will take the affirmative, arguing in favor of a balanced budget. ! Barton and Royston recently earned the title of "Champions of the Western States" by winning nine out of ten debates in Tacoma. Wash., during a tournament ln-! volving eight states. j This debate will be the second platform competition of the debate I season, according to Barton. When a Hawaiian team last toured the United States several years ago, it covered 46 of the 48 states, meeting more than 80 university competitors. Homer Hays, a member of that team, ls currently attending S.C. and will preside at this debate. Other important Trojan debates scheduled for this season, include meetings with the University of British Columbia, University of Utah, University of West Virginia, ! and Occidental college. Gordon Jef-j fers and Richard Richards have j been selected to meet the Canadian j team on February 16. Knopf Starts New Course Religion 60 Is the latest addi-j tlon to the curriculum of the School of Religion, Dean Carl Sumner Knopf announced yester-| day. j Intended especially for students j not now in the School of Religion, j course 60 is offered “to enable j those outside of organized religion ) to secure new information for valid Judgment; those within the church better to fit themselves for Intelligent religious life and activities." The new course, which was organized at the request of the University Religious Conference, consists of several divisions. Each class studies a particular denomination of the Christian religion. Denominational leaders, approved by the university and the Religious Conference, serve as instructors for the various classes They are the Rev. Reynold B Bo-den, general Protestant; Dr. George Davidson, Episcopalian; G. Byron Done, Mormon; Rabbi Edgar F Magnin, Jewish; and Adamantlons Th. Polyzoides, Eastern Orthodox. Traveling Mining Students To Attend Rugby, Cage Games Thirty students of mining engineering from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, will be guests of the University of Southern California tomorrow when they pause on their nation-wide tour to visit Las Angeles. Under the leadership of Prof. C. W. Biccard-Jeppe, dean of the faculty of engineering at the Witwatersrand, the English and Dutch students are visiting leading mines and industrial plants in the United States and Canada. While ln southern California the group will tour Hollywood, the motion picture studios, and the oil fields at Signal hill, Sante Fe Springs, and Palo Verdes. FOOTBALL GAME PLANNED S.C. will be host to the visitors at the rugby game in the coliseum Saturday afternoon and at the S.C.-Califomia basketball game Saturday night at the Olympic auditorium. Before their stay is completed the engineers are expe^ed to compete with the rugby team in a game of American football, a sport unfamiliar to the visitors. The University of Southern California is one of four American universities selected to entertain the group. The tourists already were guests of the University of Minnesota, the University of Washington, and the University of California. NSFA SPONSORS TOUR Sponsored jointly by the National Student Federation of America and the National Union of South Af-j rican Students, the tour is the sec-I ond one of its kind to visit the | United States since 1936. The j NSFA, of which S.C. ls a member I school, cooperates with national student vnlons of other nations to encourage student travel, j Leading companies, civic groups, | and educational Institutions are ; aiding the NSFA in entertaining the • South Africans. The group, which arrived in New York last December, will leave the United States on board the Queen Mary on February 9. Civic Contest Announced Students in the School of Government at S.C. who are interested in unemployment relief and any other problems connected with state or municipal government are offered the opportunity of expressing their views in the National Municipal league's annual contest. The William H. Baldwin prize of $100, awarded since 1911, will be given the student whose essay is selected. The contest is open to all students registered in any college or university offering direct instruction in state or city government. Cause Of Chile Earthquake Cited * * * + John Tanaskovic, Santiago Student, Gives Reason * ■* * * Andes Weak Zone Stress Blamed By John A. Eyed John Tanaskovic, engineering major and a resident of Santiago, Chile, believes that the recent disastrous earthquake can be attributed to the stress of the Andes mountains upoon the weak zones which lie in its valleys—thereby causing volcanic reactions. These mountains have been producing new volcanoes. Qulzapa. the * -- most active of these, has erupted already. Giving a description of the country, Tanaskovic says that the affected area is a rich agricultural center and ls part of the great and fertile Center valley. This valley begins 50 miles inland and extends approximately 100 miles farther. After a four hour train ride south from San-tlage, the entrance to the area,' San Fernando, appears occupations and here the "huasas" (co^ '^oys) are seen. Little by little, the more fertile parts of the valley are seen. It is bordered or. the east by the most highest r<eaks of the Andes, Presently, Valca, a new and modem ap tears. Talca was destroyed by au arthquake in 1927. Forty miles farther lies Chilian, one of the oldest cities in Chile. The fifty thousand inhabitants live mostly in adobe homes. Chilian ls also the birthplace of many notable personages responsible for the independence of the nation. There is only one good highway and two railroads connecting the area with Santiago, the capltol. These routes are severed and this makes relief measures extremely difficult. Experiencing violent quakes before and twice caught off guard— 1913 and 1927 — the Chilean government has been making preparations to insure against another of these catastrophes. Modern hospitals ,wlth adequate facilities for emergency operations have been installed ln many cities. Concepcion is best equipped. —j------ Trojans Encounter Bear Cagers Tonight ;-- Another Hank? Pritchard Selected For Two Offices Coordinations Assistant Appointed to Stale, Local Committees The hobby of boosting the career system in public service has been responsible for the appointment of Lawrence D. Pritchard, assistant director of coordination at S.C., as chairman of the Public Personnel Standards committee of Los Angeles and as a member of the National and State committees organized for the same purpose. Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, the work carried by these committees is part of a drive rapidly becoming a notional campaign to Improve the merit system in Public Service and extend lt to Jurisdiction where it ls totally absent for the' present time, Pritchard says. ‘‘The future of Democracy depends upon the working of a democratic system, the Public Service is one of the means of consoling human rights with efficiency to govern," Pritchard states. In his opinion a career system which would give an opportunity to talented young men to enter ln Public Service for a life work, would be the best safeguard of Democracy. Rival Croups Enter Votes In Lucky Couple Contest As Four Candidates Lead Strong rival factions pouring votes into Wampus’ “Lucky Couple” ballot box yesterday threw the contest into a red-hot two-sided affair, with prospects of a “photo finish" when the affair ends next Wednesday. Members of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and their cohorts * started the onpour of ballots with shower of votes which at first Wherever Ralph Vaughn goes tonight, so will go Walt Bickerton when the Trojans and Bears clash in their crucial basketball series at 8:30 o'clock in the Olympic auditorium. Vaughn, who broke the conference scoring record last week, will be closely watched by Bickerton. Advertising Club To Initiate The initiation of George W. Kleiser, prestdent of Foster and Kleiser Advertising incorpoated, ln-eesay j to Alpha Delta Sigma national advertising fraternity, wlll feature tonight's meeting at 6:30 o'clock at the Burlingame restaurant, Columbia Square. Kleiser, as well as being chief executive of Foster and Kleiser, has gained considerable note through his outstanding work ill the field. seemed to assure their candidates (Bill Flood and Betty Jane Bartholomew) an easy victory. But late ln the afternoon Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity entered the picture with sufficient strength to throw a Simian wrench into the works. The Sig Eps are boosting their house president, Bill Walk, and Louise Emmons for the "lucky" title. Other scattered votes came ln, Judges declared, but none compared with the two top factions. Rumor had lt. however, that Kappa Slgma fraternity was preparing to hop Into the scramble within the next * *’<iijrs. Wampus' editors issued a warning yesterday that Wednesday will be the final day for "Lucky Couple" voting. Ballots are to be put in the Daily Trojan Letters to the Editor box. Student Union.

Cal Holds Upper Hand In Series By Jack Gillean Height and Bill Ogilvie will be matched by speed and Ralph Vaughn when the league-leading Cal cagers tangle with the second-place Trojans at 8:30 o'clock tonight and tomorrow night ln the Olympic auditorium. Pasadena junior college will take on the unbeaten Trobabes in a preliminary contest at 6:30 o'clock tonight, with the frosh meeting Fullerton J. C. tomorrow night at the same Uire. Holding two lop-sided victories over UCI.A ard one over Stanford, the Bears enter tl-e sirles as fav-orUes to remain on top in the conference race. With a defeat at the hands of Stanford to mar their record, the Trojans must win both games to move Into first place in the standings. OGILVIE STARS Averaging 6 feet 4 inches in height, the towering Bears boast of a sharpshooting center ln Ogilvie. The Trojans, standing a little over 6 feet, will depend ur.on Forward Vaughn for most of their points. Vaughn and Ogilvie are leading the confersnca ln scoring. Last year a favored Trojan five lost to the Bears ln three out of four tilts. The first game found Cal winning 33-25, with 39-37, and 49-40 victories following. In the last game of the 1938 season between Cwl and B.C., ehe same Trojan five thit plays tonight walloped the Bears 60-27, RECORDS LISTED So far ln conference play the Trojan* h*ve knocked over UCLA 69-36, and Stanford. 45-32. In two games with the Bruins, the Bears won 54-39 and 49-33. Against Stanford, Cal experienced little difficulty in winning 45-29. In nearly every game, the Bears have combined height with a smooth offense to win. Besides 6 foot 6 inch Ogilvie at center, Coach Nibs Price has two high-scoring forwards ln Ivor Thomas and Captain Bob Chalmers. All three take turns in leading the Bear scorers, with Ogilvie probably being the most consistent player. Reports of Vaughn’s record-breaking performance of last weekend were quick to reach the Berkeley camp, and Coach Price has designed a defense that wlll pit Walt Continued on Page Three New Finance Class Offered Improvement ln the tax situation must come through education, Prof. Rex. Ragan asserted when discussing the course ln commercial tax problems to be merce for the first time, starting with the coming semester. ‘‘The public Is tax conscious to-, day but not tax Informed," said Professor Ragan who will be Instructor of the new course. ‘‘Todays student ls tomorrow's taxpayer and he should be acquainted with the problem of Public Finance. In this new course we wlll discuss th* present day taxes and their ills, and wlll attempt to prepare a model tax plan from both the practical and theoretical standpoint*. ** Professor Ragan streased the fact that banking and flnano* 150 i* U> be an essentially practical eours*. "I am going lo try to do** th* gap between tha theoretical economist and the acoountant, and be tween th* student and the business mam,* he said.
