Mary Chun Lea Y Members Will Visit Chinatown YMCA - YWCA Benefil Aids Asilomar Trip For Ten Trojans The Asilomar conference committee, under the auspices of the YWCA and YMCA, will conduct a tour through old and new Chinatown, and Olvera street tomorrow night at 6 o'clock. The caravan will assemble on San Pedro street, ln front of the Hong Kong noodle company. Tickets at 25 cents may be purchased from members of the YWCA, YMCA, or at the office in the Btudent Union iounge. The proceeds of the tour will go to send 10 S.C. students to the Asilomar, the annual Intercollegiate student and faculty conference of the Pacific southwest and Hawaii, starting December 26 on the Monterey peninsula at Asilomar. STUDENTS SEE CHINESE LIFE Mary Chun Lee, chairman of the Asilomar committee, stated that the students who make the tour will have the opportunity of seeing 'he Chinese and Mexica quarters ol Los Angeles as few people have seen lt. “The committee has obtained native dinners for the tourists,” said Mlss Lee. "Mexican and Chinese dishes will be served at cost, the average dinner running about 30 cents.’’ CEREMONIES PERFORMED According to Miss Lee, the Chinese temple keepers have agreed to perform the entire Buddistic and Confuscianistlc ceremonies for the students- ‘‘I want to emphasize the fact,” said Mlss Lee, ‘‘that this tour is open to all interested students. I particularly urge students who ara not native Californians, to take advantage of this chance to see cosmopolitan Los Angeles intimately.' Hungary, Poland Plan March Countries To Invade Czechoslovakia; 'Police’ Revolt in Mountains VIENNA, Nov. 20 (U.P) — Polish and Hungarian armed forces tonight were reported ready to march into Czechoslovakia's eastern autonomous province of Ruthenia, supposedly to take "police action,”following reports of an open revolt ln the Carpathian mountains. Fear that Hungary and Poland, defeated ln efforts to obtain a common frontier by the amputation of Ruthenia, might seize upon the disorders as a pretext for a military invasion was reflected by Chancellor Adolf Hitler's newspaper ln Vienna, the Voelklscher Beo-bachter. PAPER ISSUES WARNING The newspaper, asserting that the ruling of the recent Italo-Oerman court of arbitration which surrendered large slices of Czech Ruthenia and Slovakia to Hungary was a final verdict, warned that any military moves “can become an attack on peace." The possibility of open conflict over Czechosloviakia's eastern frontier was regarded by foreign diplomats as acute and it was suggested that Hitler and Premier Mussolini of Italy might act sternly lf the situation becom- more threatening. Duiing negotiations over Hungary's territorial demands Mussolini supported demands for a common Polish-Hungarian frontier while Hitler, favoring the Czech position, opposed them. As a result, Hungary was given the southwest corner of Ruthenia but this area Included most of the provlne's population centers Including the capitol of Ushurod. POWER JEOPARDIZED Observers said that now that the Italo-German arbiters have ruled, any occupation of eastern Czechoslovakia by Poland or Hungary would be a blow to Italian prestige. For Germany it would not only involve a loess ,of prestige but would jeopardize Nazi ambitions to the east toward the Black sea, interfering with Hitler's program of economic domination over Slovakia, Ruthenia, Bohemia and Moro-vla. The Voelklscher Boc bach ter, criticizing the violence ln the Carpathian region, said: "The campaign for frontier clarification ls being conducted by Hungarian newspapers, urging union of Ruthenia to Hungary on historical, geographical and economic grounds.’’ Thc newspaper said this development was ‘'remarkable” because Budapest as well as Prague "accepted in advance without reservation the decision of Italy and Germany as given at the Vienna conference." Sorority Hi-jinks Skits Announced From a group of more than 30 sorority skits and specialty numbers previewed for its consideration last Wednesday and Thursday, the advisory board for the forthcoming women's Hi-Jlnks today announced those acts which will be presented in the final show, November 29. “Cherchez la Femme" is the* theme with which the skits are concerned. The presentation of the Homecoming event in Bovard auditorium will mark the 10th anniversary of Hi-Jinks, which was instituted in 1928 by Dean Pearle Alkln-Smith. SKITS JUDGED Pi Beta Phl, Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Oamma, Phi Mu, and Phi Beta are the sororities whose skits have been Judged most acceptable by the committee. Every social sorority on the campus and two professional groups were represented ln ths preliminary tryout* last week. Ten individual women will give specialty numbers, displaying musical, dramatic, and dancing talent. Henrietta Pelta. accordionist; Mary Prince, tap dancer: Frances Reidy, whistler; Serene aKssapian, monologue; Virginia Elmquist and Edith Johnson, pianists; Claire Thomas, dancer and pianist; Jeanne Heme-rich, violinist; Lucille Ostrow. pianist; and Marilee Macy, character dancer, were chosen as the most outstanding from a group of 30 girls. MEN INVITED Zuma Palmer, general chairman for this year's Hi-Jlnks, extends an invitation to the entire student body to attend the show on November 29. “We want it understood." she said, “that men students and their friends are welcome. This Is not an affair for women only, though lt is presented by them.” Prizes wlll be given to the winners of the various represented groups. There is no admission charge to Hi-Jlnks. which is spor • sored by the YWCA.

Nov. 20— ir.P>—A plan to bring Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini into another four-power conference, perhaps before the end ol December, was regarded by diplomats tonight as one of the underlying purposes of this week's state visit to Paris by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. Chamberlain .and British Foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax, accompanied by their wives, Will arrive Wednesday for a three-day visit Dies Bill Strikes at Malcontents Representative Offers New Proclamation For Transfer Agency WASHINGTON, Nov. 20—(UK)— Representative Martin Dies, Democrat, Texas, chairman of house committee investigating un-American activities, announced tonight that he would introduce a bill in the next congress legalizing the exchange of discontented elements in this country for groups of oppressed minorities in Europe, He said he intends to discuss terms of the measure with state department officials. Among the malcontents he named specifically were Nazis. Fascists, and Communists who would be "exchanged," regardless of whether they are American citizens. BILL INAUGURATES AGENCY I Dies said Ills bill would call for creation of a federal transfer agency which also would negotiate pro-j perty exchanges so that the "trad-| ed” groups would not be penniless when they took up their new I abodes. I . “One oppressed refugee ls worth j two of these disgruntled Ameri-I cans," Dies declared “I think we should be willing to make such an exchange " DECISION MADE He made his announcement as his committee prepared to renew its inquiry into activities of the federal writers' project. Decision to switch to this phase came after the committee over the weekend received testimony from John C. Metcalfe, an Investigator, that a "rising tide of anti-Semitism” ls sweeping the United States, and is being abetted by activities of 135 allegedly Fascist anti-racial and anti-religious organizations. "I think these disclosures reveal why my proposal to exchange un-Americans for oppressed groups abroad is necessary for the good of the United States,” Dies said. “It is nothing more than putting the administration's reciprocal trade agreement program on a human basis.” Senator Urges Jewish Haven in Palestine WASHINGTON, Nov. 20— (U.P.)—Senator William H King Democrat, Utah, today denounced the “sadistic” anti-Semitic policy of Germany's Nazi regime and urged that United States and Great Britain take Joint action to promote mass settlement of Jewish refugees ln Palestine.

Band Wins Cold Trophy In Festival Gold is where you find lt—Pete Conn. director of the musical organization department, found lt in San Bprnardlno in the form of a huge, beautifully engraved loving cup. The trophy bears the inscription ' Best Band ln Parade." In reference lo the Trojan band’s performance in Saturday s San Bernardino County Covered Wagon Days Festival parade, which, according to parade oiflclals, was the biggest parade ever held in the biggest county ln the United States. The 8.C. musicians led the parade through the downtown district of the city and to the high school football stadium, where they staged a marching exhibition, and where awards were presented for the best bands, floats, costumes, and beards. Bandsmen did not compete in the beard contest; however, entrance was compulsory for all men ln San Bernardino. The festival, which lasted for four days, was highlighted by the parade and rodeo which followed Participating ln the two-hour procession were more than 20 bands and 150 floats. This was the first Covered Wagon Days celebration to be held, but the San Bernardino chamber of commerce expects to make lt an annual event. glon of the United Palestine appeal, King caustically referred to "so-called ‘Christian’ nations” which permit Jewish persecution and predicted that Poland soon may inaugurate a vigorous antl-Jewlsh drive. Prior to hearing King, the conference adopted a resolution calling upon President Roosevelt to impress upon Uie British government the “unique Importance” of Palestine as a major center of Jewish migration ln any large-scale colonization program which the two na-i tions now are considering. I Tiie senator's endorsement of the ! Palestine movement was regarded by some observers as a tacit admission on his part that there is little hope that congress wlll sanction any proposal to lift American immigration barriers to accommodate large numbers of refugees. A bitter congressional light over any such proposal ls considered likely to develop because of wide spread sentiment that lowering of the immigration gates to permit a large Inflow of refugees might hamper recovery by adding to the na- tion's unemployment problem. King told the conference that Germany’s recent punitive action against the Jews made him "regret exceedingly that a nation that has made so many contributions to scl* ence and to art and to literature, and Indeed, to civilization, should have lapsed into such a barbarous state as to support the cruel, inhuman, and fiendish acts which characterize the Nazi regime." “I have been a very firm believer in the Zionist movement,” he said, “and hsve made what contribution I could among my many friends, Jews and non-Jews, to develop Uiat idea that Palestine was a suitable place and must be preserved by tiie Jews. The Jews must receive aid ln developing lt and ln making lt habitable for thousands and thousands of Jews who might find It impossible to remain in so-called 'Christian' lands." He referred to two trips which he made to Poland and said he felt that the nation “will develop anti-Semitic propensities aud that that government will visit upon he Jews in Poland some of lie atrocities and cruelties that characterise the Nasi regime. ”
