Wary Trojans patrolled 28th street Tuesday night, but they apparently overlooked the vulnerability of the U.S.C. campus. And while cautious "guards" kept well-peeled eyes on fraternity row, some rapscallion inked the mysterious letters "U.C.L.A." boldly on the very base of Troy’s symbol of impregnability—the statue of Tommy Trojan. The above students, Clementine Cas-mire and Jack Naye are pointing with alarm. —Courtesy L.A.

NOYES' WORKS ARE READ Dr. Frank Baxter of the English department read from the works of Alfred Noyes during the assembly period yesterday. Of the English poet. Dr. Baxter said: “He is a colorful lyricist who can ring charming tunes on our tired old language, so that he delights the senses even when his quantum of poetry seems inadequate and thin. “Some of his verses will reappear in anthologies,” said Dr. Baxter, “as long as men love the rhythms and cadences of our English tongue.” Some of the other works of Noyes are: critical studies. “The Sea in English Poetry” and “Some Aspects of Modern Poetry”; short stories, “Walking Shadows”; novels, “The Hidden Player,” and “The Sun Cure.” Buss Offers Two Policies United States' Way To Far Eastern Security Outlined Two possible foreign policies for the United States in the face of world and Far Eastern conflict were suggested to Wednesday lecture listeners by Dr. Claude A. Buss yesterday afternoon in a talk on “The Far Eastern Conflict and Collective Security.” “If a positive policy of collective security can be agreed upon by the strong nations of the world, then the United States has everything to gain by cooperation and participation as an equal,” Dr. Buss stated in describing one policy possibility, but added that sad state of world affairs almost prohibit this event. “Otherwise,” Dr. Buss declared. “The United States has the same recourse which other nations have, and that is to rely upon its neutrality policy or whatever substitute it adopts for the very real and immediate purpose of keeping itself out of war.” Tracing Far Eastern history of the past 50 years. Dr. Buss, who is associate professor of international relations, showed how Western nations forced open the trade doors of Japan and China, exploiting China for their oWn trade interests. He pointed out how Japan, adopting Western ways, won a war with Russia and became a strong power. In 1937 Dr. Buss told how a watchful Japan saw that China and Russia had become friendly, that a united China was becoming modernized and was building a big military machine. With Great Britain preoccupied in the Mediterranean and the United States “disposed to rave and do nothing about,” Japan made additions to its China garrisons with “the usual prattle about self-defense and anytime after July 1, 1937. war was a question of days.” Chapel of Silence Services Are Today The weekly Friday morning meditation will be conducted as usual at 7:30 in the Little Chapel of Silence tomorrow morning. The Meditation is a 20-minute religious devotional period.

Brown will act as emissaries of goodwill for Troy and U.C.L.A. respectively. Much good-natured joshing is sa-pected to fly back and forth between the two film stars. Brower stated.
