Concerning the elections Dean Mary Sinclair Crawford stated: “A splendid group of girls has been chosen, representing many different phases of campus life. A girl may consider it a great honor indeed to be one of this group. CHOICE COMMENDED “The group shows evidence of thoughtful care in their selection, and I feel they are fully worthy of campus tradition. The Amazons should be congratulated on their splendid effort to have each group on campus represented, as well as the successful candidates on their invitation to membership of this fine organization.” The Amazon group was founded in 1921 as a service organization similar to the Trojan Knights. At first they called themselves the “Trojanettes.” but this was soon changed to the more original “Amazons.” Their insignia is a shield with 14 points, a Trojan head, and two battle axes. From an original membership of seventeen the present limit is set at forty. SERVICES VARY Among the services performed by Amazons are assisting at registration. helping the new students, ushering at assemblies and football games, and serving on the election committee.

Mrs. Roosevelt Speaks in L.A.; Defends Youth “Civilization is doomed when j there is no place for younger J people,” stated Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt in a speech on “The Problems , of Youth” at the Shrine auditorium last night. “The three things most wanted by | j the younger generation are: prep- ■ aration for earning their living; the satisfaction and fun in living; and ; the security and happiness of mar- : ! riage.” Mrs. Roosevelt added. “Our j children can’t follow us in a chang- , ing world. The changes in the j world about us necessitates a change , in bringing up our children.” Mrs. Roosevelt also feels that war | is a horrible waster of men and ! materials and that it was the force j that brought on the recent depres-| sion, but also thinks that w'e “can’t shut out the rest of the world.” Rebels Shell Barcelona Non-Combalanls Viclims of Quick Series of Bombings BARCELONA. Friday, March 18 (l'.P)—Twenty-four hours of pitiless air raids by Generalissimo Francisco Franco's bombing planes, with Italian and German pilots allegedly at their controls, left Barcelona today a city of horror and ruin with somewhere between 400 and 1000 dead. The Loyalist cabinet, meeting in emergency session last night, was reported unofficially to have ordered reprisals by means of air raids on insurgent-held cities. As Franco’s black tipped bombers from off the Balearic islands roared upon the city at 10:25 last night on their thirteenth raid since Wednesday night the government announced that 400 bodies of men, women and children had been recovered. To the horror of Franco's roaring bombers, the screams of dying entrapped in the ruins and flames arising from a large section of the city was added to the sufferings of between 2,000 and 3.000 persons wounded and injured in the rain of death from the skies.

Because Hall attempted to introduce a measure that restricted election literature and propaganda to post-cards and notices in campus publications, Atkinson challenged Hall’s “impartial point of view” and charged that Henry Flynn’s cohorts are “afraid to bring tha campaign issues out into the open.” Although the senate later passed the legislative act by a vote of seven to four. Atkinson emphatically stated: “This will not deter us from doing what w'e intended to do.” He refused to recognize Hall’s contention that a curb on printed matter would reduce unfair practices and “mud slinging” in elections.
